Campaign for green spaces

Have your say

A CAMPAIGN to help communities in Sheffield nurture green spaces has been launched.

Marks & Spencer and charity Groundwork hope the My Urban Green scheme will encourage people to take active roles in shaping the development, maintenance and management of such sites.

In Sheffield, it will support volunteering around the city’s waterways including the Sheffield and Tinsley Canal.

Conservation tasks will be carried out including vegetation clearance.

The Sharrow Vale Community Association is also working with the campaign to fund improvements to a green ‘pocket park’ off Hickmott Road.
