A new outdoor storytelling area and upgraded play facilities have been unveiled outside a block of council flats in Netherthorpe.

The St Stephens Tenants and Residents Association worked with Sheffield City Council to secure a £10, 000 grant through the Biffa Award for the Netherthorpe Play Hub in Jericho Street.

Christine Naylor, a member of the TARA, said: “We wanted to redevelop the area to give parents with young children the chance to play in a safe environment. We also wanted an area that school children can use. They now have this and can grow their own plants here, as well as using the storytelling area and mini-amphitheatre.”
