Miracle on the trail in Shiregreen, Sheffield


On Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th June, volunteers transformed the Trans Pennine Trail between Barnsley Road and Ecclesfield Road in Shiregreen. The Scouts supported the Trans Pennine Trail and Sustrans route by litter picketing a 1 mile stretch of green way through Hartley Brook. Over 40 volunteers  turned up and in a very short time brought the area back to being a treasured green space. During the clear up the group even found a dumped surf board. Over the two days we cleared 40 bags of rubbish.

The route through Shiregreen is often forgotten and neglected by all and this green space in the centre of a residential area and full of rubbish waiting for rejuvenation. After the two evenings we managed to clear a 1 mile length of trail.

The voluntary work the 231st Shiregreen Scout Troop and Don District Explorer Scouts did follows a very busy time for the group having just cleared fly tippling and litter in Beeley Wood as part of the Scout Association's Community Week.
