Playground Celebrations

St George's Day
St George's Day

Children at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground can always find something to celebrate!

Volunteers and children put in extra effort in April to decorate the playground for St George’s Day. The castle got a much needed new coat of paint and the flags were out, while children were busy making swords and shields to battle the dragon!

In May the children held a party to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire, making model bicycles and banners out of recycled materials. Amaal, aged eight, said: “We really liked the men on bikes last year and wanted to do it again. I loved making the big bike!” Patrick Meleady, playground manager, added, “We all hope next year the tour will come to Sheffield!”

National anti-knife campaigner Teresa Cave, presenting a generous donation to the playground’s Big Slide Appeal, said, “I have never witnessed a playground work as well as this one at Pitsmoor. It was clear to me after ten minutes I needed to help and I truly wish we could replicate this playground across the country.” Playground users hope to get a new big slide in place over the summer.
