Thank you to everyone who supported our fund raising effort on Easter Monday by taking part in our annual duck race. The results are in and our team will be contacting the winning owners this week.
Two and half thousand rubber ducks plunged down the river at Endcliffe Park for the annual charity Duck Race. The event, organised by the Friends of Porter Valley charity sees the ducks raise down the river, through the park and onto the playground. Sheffield Live! reporter Simon Thake put on his wellies and headed up stream.

The FoPV are taking a close interest in the council's latest consultations for potential flood defences within the Porter Valley. Following the consultation late last year the council have announced that the proposal at Whiteley Woods will no longer be considered. You can read their full press release here.
The original plans included proposed projects within the Porter Valley such as barriers at three locations including one at Endcliffe Park and we would encourage you to see what is being considered by looking at the Councils website at floodprotectionsheffield.com.
The FoPV response to the consultations in 2016 was made after receiving comments and suggestions from our members.
