Sports for Burngreave

All is set for big developments in sports for Burngreave with new facilities at Firs Hill Primary School and an important sports planning event held at Verdon Street recently.

The new facility at Firs Hill Primary School.Initiated by New Deal and facilitated by Sports and Community Recreation the event highlighted the need for existing facilities, green spaces and play areas to be upgraded and the need to support healthier lifestyles and empower local people. Volunteers need to gain the qualifications and training that will lead to jobs in the sporting field. Others called for links with primary schools to help create Burngreave’s own junior basketball, netball and cricket teams.
