Boost for canal project

Have your say

A PROJECT which encourages people to make the most of one of Sheffield’s hidden gems has been given a new lease of life.

Funding for the Blue Loop Community Project - a scheme which promotes waterways and riverside walkways around the River Don and canal at Tinsley - came to an end in April, but a windfall from the Big Lottery’s Awards for All means it can continue through the summer.

Hellen Hornby, community team manager, said: “The funding means we will continue to deliver free events and activities for individuals, schools and community groups, along with volunteer sessions.”
