Neighbours make city great

Have your say

GOOD neighbours make good friends, according to Sheffield’s older population.

The South Yorkshire branch of the charity Anchor has revealed the majority of Sheffield’s older population think the city is a good place to live.

A survey found that two thirds of residents would recommend it, while 75 per cent say they feel part of a community.

An overwhelming majority of over 50s also said they knew their neighbours, and 90 per cent of those think their neighbours are friendly and helpful.

Narinder Singh, Anchor’s regional operational director for Sheffield, said: “We hope all organisations will work together to make Sheffield a great place for older people.”
