Residents may have noticed a transformation on the Wensley estate recently. Its thanks to the Neighbourhood Environment Action Team, or NEAT Team as they are known.

The make-over was funded by the Community Assembly and Wensley TARA, who bought the plants. Sheffield Homes estate team were also on hand to help with the work. TARA secretary Gladys Newbolt told the Messenger,

“The NEAT Team have been working on the estate to tidy up patches of ground that were overgrown and really a mess.

They have done a great job. These areas have been neglected for years. They've removed unsuitable shrubs and replanted better ones. The work they did was excellent.”

It is now hoped the areas will be easier to maintain, so helping the estate look better into the future.

Look out for activities for young people in February. Wensley TARA will be working closely with Owler Brook School and Arches Housing to provide out of school activities.

Find out more about Wensley TARA’s activities at their General Meeting on Thursday 9th February, 2.30pm at Wensley Communty Centre.
