Flower Planters Removed

Flower planters removed from Broomhill shopping centre to make way for ‘social distancing’

Broomhill shopping centre

The community of Broomhill were confused and flabbergasted to find that their lovely floral display planters, regularly tended by local residents, has been removed and replaced with squares of Tarmac.   

Apparently, the Planters in the Broomhill shopping Centre had been moved to help create more space for pedestrians to safely social distance and as part of the council’s work to create safe active travel routes around the city.

Councillor Bob Johnson, Cabinet Member for Transport and Sustainability at Sheffield City Council, explains why the planters have been moved:

“As we move into the next phase of lockdown and people start to move around their communities more frequently, it is essential that we create the space needed to allow safe social distancing.

“Fulwood Road was identified as one location where extra space could be created to give people an alternative route to the row of shops, which could become congested. “In the first stage of works to create a footpath, planters blocking this pedestrian route have been temporarily moved to Division Street, where they will form part of the road closure in place to encourage active travel in the city centre. The parking meter and sign on the same footpath will also be moved so that the path is unobstructed.

“As the initial temporary road closure measures on Division Street are upgraded, the planters will be reinstated into Broomhill Centre ensuring that space for social distancing can be maintained.”

How Households are Coping with Covid-19.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all keeping safe! I’m a journalist at ITV Calendar.

We are looking for a street in Sheffield who are friendly with each other and who have a tight knit sense of community.

We want to speak to a number of houses on the street for a piece we’re doing – looking at how different households are coping with Covid-19.

We’re looking for a range of people to speak to, from families, to the elderly, to single parents or people on their own.

if you think your street might be a good place for us to come and do some filming, or if you know anyone that might be a good candidate!

*Please get in touch with Astrid Quinn and send her a reply

Applause for Frontline Workers

Applause for Frontline Workers Tonight at 8pm

giphy clap2Over the past eight weeks, there have been many ways that we have shown our appreciation and gratitude to thank all the brave front line NHS key workers for their exceptional dedication during these unprecedented times.

Tonight at the dedicated time of 8pm, whilst continuing to show our support in the usual way, with a huge round of applause from our front doors, balconies, windows, and living rooms; let us give a thought for the wellbeing of the front line local authority staff who, during the COVID19 pandemic, have continued to function and carry out their very important roles and manage the increasing need for their services and information whilst dealing with their own personal situations and emotions.
