Have your say

A PYRAMID sculpture featuring wildlife mosaics is to be unveiled in Richmond Park this afternoon to mark the completion of a £18m investment programme.

The community art project, designed by city artist Coralie Turpin in consultation with local people, stands at the entrance to the revamped community centre.

After the unveiling, guests will have a chance to tour the neighbourhood, meeting residents and representatives of Great Places Housing Group and their project partners.

Since taking over the area in 2007, Great Places has developed two apartment blocks and refurbished more than 300 homes. Open spaces have been brought to life and community spirit revived.

As a result, anti-social behaviour has been significantly reduced and residents are enthusiastic about the improvements.

Decide police priorities

SHEFFIELD people are being given a chance to have their say on the county’s policing priorities – at the touch of a button.

South Yorkshire Police Authority has launched an online Policing Priorities survey to help shape forthcoming plans and targets.

Chair Charles Perryman said: “We want to hear from as many people as possible before the deadline to ensure our decisions are as representative as possible.”

The survey runs until July 29. Visit or call 01226 772852.
