The autumn issue of the Heeley Voice gives us an opportunity to share the news that work has finally started to restore the former Anns Grove School. After 8 years hard work , ownership of the buildings has now been transferred to Heeley Development Trust to enable the site to be brought back into use as a community facility. The Trust has raised £2.5 million to start the job and the first phase will be completed early next year – the front page of this issue includes an update on the progress made so far
There are a number of articles about events and activities taking place on Heeley Millennium Park – including a great review of the Heeley Festival.
