2008 Guide to Sheffield 8

Thursday, January 3, 2008

The following is the introduction to the Active 8 Guide published by the local magazine for part of Meg’s constituency. For details of the magazine visit: www.active8magazine.co.uk


The Sheffield 8 area is an extremely important part of my constituency not least as it is the area where I grew up in! It is vibrant and bustling with a variety of locally owned businesses offering wide ranging services. Many people who are born in the area don’t move far away; with many staying close by to their childhood home there really is a warming community spirit in S8. The generosity of people is also a quality of local people as many offer up their time to help others in need and carry out charity work.


Another important feature of S8 is its greenery.  The natural beauty of S8 with its parks such as Graves and Meersbrook play an important part of Sheffield’s widely held ‘green’ city status. I know having met with a number of wildlife groups, ‘Friends’ of parks groups, walking groups and those who keep allotments; that throughout the local community the green environment is crucial part of the areas fabric and a reason so many choose to stay most of their lives.  


However, S8 has certainly changed since I was a girl and as the local MP I am extremely pleased with the impressive amount of investment recently in education and health care - a new state-of-the-art 6million medical centre at Jordanthorpe and a multi-million pound secondary school at Meadowhead.


Overall, S8 is a great place to have a business, go to school, grow up in, live and represent in Parliament which I am extremely proud to do. I wish all those in Sheffield 8 a great 2008!
