Have your say

I’m chuffed.

Kimberworth is going on the map.

It’s going to be famous for something other than its proximity to Blackburn Meadows sewage works and having it very own branch of Akhbar’s.

People are going to come to the place where I live (for which, of course, it is also famous) and gaze in wonder. Not only at the fact that Tinsley viaduct is still standing. Or at the distant domes of Meadowhall.

They will no longer need to whine about the demise of the huge and hugely ugly old cooling towers that, as a resident who’d had the misfortune of having to look out at them every time I closed my curtains of a night, I was delighted they blitzed into oblivion.

Because, if Rotherham Council have the good sense to say yes, Kimberworth will be getting the Steel Man.

The stunning, 30-metre high sculpture - stacks taller than the Angel of the North, a shining symbol of our industrial past and a celebration of the new technology regenerating this region - hopefully, he will sit atop a coal-black column on Kimberworth’s Meadowbank Road.

RMBC, do not let me down now.
