In a team effort, Centre Director Darren Pearce and colleagues conquered a stretch of the Trans Pennine Trail, along the Five Wiers Walk cycle path.

The Meadowhall team chose to spruce up the cycle path as part of a bid to get more visitors on their bikes. To encourage this, the centre recently installed brand new cycle hubs near the Oasis Dining Quarter and Argos entrances, providing 120 additional secure spaces for visitors to safely leave their bikes.

Darren Pearce, Centre Director at Meadowhall, said: “We’re really proud to be participating in this year’s Great British Spring Clean, joining thousands of people across the UK to clear litter from our streets, parks and benches. It’s been great to help tidy up our local area and to give back to our local community in Sheffield.”
