Visiting Broomhill High Street

Last weekend, I visited Broomhill High Street to check up on changes made along the pavement. I was disappointed to see barriers left out and uneven surfaces, all for the most unimaginative alteration to the area.

There is a real concern amongst businesses here that these changes to parking will reduce customer numbers and make the area less accessible to visitors from other parts of the City or further afield. The council could have made space for a small market and still maintained the appropriate number of disabled parking spaces.

On Saturday, the Lib Dem team was out in force for an early morning litter pick in Crookes in a bid to keep our streets clean. We spoke to local residents on issues of housing, planning and street lighting.

Crookes Canvassing Session – Sheffield Lib Dems

On a very rainy Wednesday afternoon, the Sheffield team were out again, this time in Crookes, canvassing to get Bex Atkinson elected to the City Council in May.

Bex runs a zero-waste shop on Crookes high street and runs as a Green Liberal Democrat. Her experience as a local business person and environmental activist is much needed at City Hall.

Out on the doorstep this morning to help elect two excellent candidates, Alan Woodcock and Ann Whittaker, to the council in May.

On the UK’s first day outside the European Union, it is more important now than ever to campaign for a liberal UK. That campaign starts with local politics and local councillors.
