BT Staff Work Away Day
Following the restoration work on 4 old benches in 2013, now round the climbing block in the playground, BT Staff once again embarked on another project of restoration of 5 Picnic Tables rescued from Abbeydale Centre.
The work was organised and run by Sheffield Ranger Service.
The before and after pictures are taken at the Small Mill Building which is used as our centre for these works.
A new Picnic Table costs over a £1000 so BT’s work has added well over £5,000 worth of assets to Millhouses Park.
Watch out for them in the near future!

Picnic Benches After
Sunday 11th May 2014 was set for a river clean through Millhouses Park together with Sheffield Ranger Service.
As it turned out, the river was swollen after heavy overnight rain so we used the time to carry out a deep litter pick from Archer Road up to and round the Café area. 20 willing volunteers turned out to brave the weather and over 20 bags of litter were collected.
Thanks to all who attended, the Rangers and Pete Stow who organised the event.
Congratulation to everyone who took part in this year’s competition – there were record crowds and amazing weather for this year’s event!
