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.”

If you are, or you are aware of any friends and neighbours , self-isolating or simply struggling to cope with the current unprecedented situation, we have a team of unpaid volunteers registered to help.

We are a flexible resource waiting to adapt to and help as best we can with whatever circumstances may arise during the pandemic and in its aftermath.

At the moment we have a list of local shops that can help with the supply of food and certain other products by delivering to you. To prioritise those self-isolating or who just need some help, we have been working with – e.g. Greencross Chemist, Phil James Butchers, GT News, Spar/Post Office, and Tesco Express. Should demands on these services become stretched, we will step in to help with deliveries/collections.

We have DBS checked volunteers who will be happy to simply talk on the phone as we are becoming aware of people’s increasing sense of loneliness due to the current situation. And this may well be an increasingly important need over the coming months.

We are open to try and help whatever the problem. (Some of us are experienced dog-walkers if you are not able to leave home). Please feel free to ring us, even if you are not sure if we are the right people to help. We are happy to listen and try to meet whatever needs arise.

The office is staffed from 9am – 12noon, Monday – Saturday, but there is a 24-hour answerphone TEL: 01 14 267 0006
