RESIDENTS are being invited to find out more about plans to restore a former colliery spoil heap on the northern outskirts of Sheffield.

A public exhibition about the Hesley Wood Spoil Heap Coal Recovery and Restoration Scheme has been organised for later this month.

The event is on Tuesday, May 22, from noon to 7pm, at the Hesley Wood Scout Activity Centre, off White Lane, near Chapeltown.

Proposals to regenerate the spoil heap site are being organised by colliery restoration organisation Recycoal.
