Firs Hill’s ‘Walking Wonderland’ took shape in September, with murals, signposts and pavement markings along the journey from Sheffield Academy to St Catherine’s School.

It’s hoped the new additions to the route will encourage children and parents who drive to use the Sheffield Academy car park and allow their children to walk down the hill to school, to help prevent problems at the school gates. Future plans include double yellow lines and a pedestrian crossing.

The project was organised by Firs Hill Tenants and Residents Association, with practical help from Wates Construction and University students. Pauline West from the TARA said,

“I want to say a great big thank-you to Wates and their staff for all their hard work on 18th September in steam-cleaning many of our paths, litter picking, strimming and putting up the pictures that the University (Just Do It) students painted, on the Academy Wall. They look fantastic.”

The memorial bench for the former Chair of the Residents Association, Jean Hayden, was also installed outside the Sheffield Academy.

For more information about the TARA’s activities, contact their office on 256 0337 or call in Tuesday or Wednesday 10am-12noon.
