Many of you will be familiar with the ‘Bird and Boy’ sculpture at the Rutland Road entrance to Parkwood Springs, but have you seen our latest work of art at the Cooks Wood / Shirecliffe Road entrance, installed on 5th November?

The sculpture was created by Sheffield artist Jason Thomson, inspired by the history, geology, and wildlife of the site. It is to be officially unveiled by the Leader of the Council on Friday December 9th at 12.30pm.

We hope that next year’s Beacons event will be able to incorporate this new mythical being into its storytelling. What name should we give it? Do you have any ideas? Please visit our website at www.parkwood-springs.org.uk or email parkwood.springs@gmail.com

The next event at Parkwood Springs will be a wreath-making event on Tuesday 6th December, 4pm – 6pm.
