Spital Hill – Gateway to Burngreave Businesses

A film by Steve Pool – artist in residence at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground – to showcase Burngreave, its people and its businesses.

“Whatever you want, you get it in this area”

We see the diversity of cafes and shops, the supermarkets – food from all around the world.

Shopkeepers are interviewed and say what they love about Burngreave – a place to run your own business, to be part of a vibrant community.

The post office, solicitors, travel agent, carpets, electrical goods, QFashion – and Jam Sam Caribbean Barbers which has been in the same shop for 42 years.

The longevity prize surely goes to John Heath & Sons – the funeral directors family business which has been in Burngreave for 138 years.

We see and hear street artists and musicians, community prayers, and lively conversations.

“You don’t need to travel, the world comes to us”
