Mobile goes after 38 years to create new Sheffield school playground

A bigger playground is being planned at a Sheffield school after a mobile classroom was demolished after 38 years.

It was no longer needed after the construction of a new extension at the front of Nether Green Infants.

The new playground will be covered in a special piece of Astroturf coming from the Olympic Park in London.

A school spokeswoman said: “The demolition of the mobile was very poignant for many of our pupils, parents and staff. We all had mixed emotions.”
