Have your say

WINTER may be on its way, but a Sheffield community is sowing seeds for a beautiful spring.

Volunteers from Owlthorpe Community Forum set out to make their area more colourful after receiving a £500 grant for wildflower seeds and daffodil bulbs from Sheffield Council’s south east community assembly.

Sheffield Landscape Trust joined forces with keen members of the community forum to sow the seeds alongside the new footpaths on the Owlthorpe Heritage and Nature Trail.

After their efforts, next spring there should be a sea of daffoldils, poppies, cornflowers and chamomile, as well as yarrow, St John’s Wort, meadowsweet, meadow buttercup and common knapweed.
