Green groups get recognition

Have your say

PIONEERING community groups and projects were honoured at an awards ceremony.

The Transition Sheffield awards recognised Sheffield Climate Alliance for its jobs campaign. Meersbrook Walled Garden Outdoor Playgroup, Burngreave Food Bank, Sheffield Freegle, and Portland Works also scooped awards at the event, held at Burton Hall in Hillsborough.

Susannah Diamond of Transition Sheffield, which raises awareness about climate change said: “We wanted to respond to sustainability issues.

“One is climate change, the other is peak energy – the idea that we might be running out of cheap fossil fuels. We ought to kind of respond to that and plan our lives differently.

“What we’re seeing all over Sheffield is people taking initiative to do great things.”
