It's the last day for business to vote on whether they want flood defences installed in the Lower Don Valley area of Sheffield. They would cover an eight kilometre stretch of the River Don.
More than 250 companies affected by the plans have until 5pm to return their ballot papers and give their backing to the proposals, which cover nearly 40 interventions along the 8km stretch of the River Don, between Nursery Street in the city centre and the Blackburn Brook near the M1 motorway.
The £8.1million scheme is reliant on businesses in the Lower Don Valley agreeing to contribute £1.4million to the cost of the defences through a Business Improvement District (BID).
Sheffield has one of the lowest rates of childhood obesity in the country. Two fifths of four and five year olds in the city are a healthy weight.
Nearly 65 per cent of children aged 10-11 are of a healthy weight, only slightly lower than the national average of just over 65 per cent.
Of the core cities, Sheffield is ranked highest for prevalence of healthy weight in the Yorkshire region and second highest behind Bristol for year 6 children.
Our big ambition is that every child should have the best start in life to help them achieve their full potential and a healthy start is by far the best way. Maintaining a healthy weight as a child can have a huge impact on how healthy you are as an adult. And it goes without saying how healthy you are as an adult has a massive effect on the life you lead.
– Councillor Jackie Drayton
Therefore it is vital that we work with our children, parents and carers on how we can make sure everyone leads as healthy a lifestyle as possible. All research shows that healthy children do better at school and in the long run this means better in terms of jobs and achievements.
