The playing fields at Sidney Elementary School are looking very lush and green after the winter rains and the grounds crew have done a nice job of maintaining the fields for the students and other users of this green space.
There is a running track and sprint lanes marked out in white chalk on the grass for the children to practice their sports. If you haven’t been to the playing fields lately, I urge you to go there soon and take a look; maybe even take a sprint around the track.
You must do this soon because if the Town of Sidney gets their way this part of the playing field will be paved over and a new fire hall built on those grounds — a large green space lost forever.
