Parents present Sheffield play petitions

Have your say

PETITIONS were being presented to a meeting of Sheffield Council’s cabinet against plans to cut staff from Pitsmoor Adventure Playground and Burngreave’s Verdon Recreation Centre in the city.

Parents of children using both facilities were taking the petitions to the meeting this afternoon.

A number of parents were also plan to attend to address councillors.

Withdrawal of staff by Activity Sheffield, which runs youth services on behalf of the council, is being proposed due to £50 million of budget cuts being made in the next financial year.
