A Portable Ice Rink with Snow Machine and DJ was organised in December to reward children and young people from across Burngreave and Fir Vale for positive activities and for good behaviour throughout the year.

The event was organised jointly between Activity Sheffield projects. Michala Spacey, Burngreave Sports Development Project coordinator, said, “The event went fantastically and all the children loved it. Everyone was so well behaved for the whole day.”
