Our little green oasis, Devon Gardens on Abbeyfield Road, has won a coveted Green Pennant award. It has now been recognised as a historic park by Sheffield City Council.
The award, which puts Devon Gardens in an elite group of parks in Sheffield, requires them to be welcoming and well-maintained, with support and involvement from the local community.
Chair of the Friends of Devon Gardens group, John Chapman, said, “We are delighted to have won this fantastic award. Our thanks go to the Parks staff for their commitment and enthusiasm and also to all members of the Friends group for their input and dedication.”
The Friends group celebrated at their annual Party in the Park on 1st August, attended by neighbours sharing food, children’s activities and games from Activity Sheffield.
