Sheffield’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Talib Hussain, spent the annual National Play Day at the Pitsmoor Adventure Playground.
The playground is one of the Lord Mayor’s nominated charities during his year of office.
He said: “The importance of play in childhood cannot be over-emphasised. It allows children to develop friendships, to express themselves and develop their own imaginations. In the current climate of TV and games consoles, National Play Day is a wonderful of encouraging children to go out and be active.”
