Keep Woodbourn Stadium Open

We the undersigned petition the council to Keep Woodbourn Stadium open on Monday and Friday evenings, so that athletes of all ages and abilities have access to at least one outdoor athletics facility in Sheffield during December 2018 and January 2019.

Sheffield was promised that Woodbourn Stadium would be openly available for athletes to train at following the demolition of Don Valley Stadium. This agreement has been reneged upon and the people of Sheffield betrayed.

It makes a mockery of the title, 'City of Sport' when our athletes cannot have access to even the most basic of facilities. We in Sheffield have traditionally 'punched above our weight' in producing athlete's such as Jessica Ennis, NIcola Adams, and Seb Coe, to name but a few. How can we continue to produce such talented athletes when we cannot provide quality training facilities with open access?
