Council leaders have today pledged to back Olympic golden girl Jessica Ennis by welcoming her home with a civic ceremony.
Plans are in place to host a special ceremony to welcome the gold medal winner once she returns to the city following her historic achievement. Other plans being talked about include giving her the Freedom of the City and already a banner congratulating her win is hanging proudly from the Town Hall balcony.
Council officers are now in talks with Jessica herself to see what she wants to have as a lasting legacy following her success.
Leader of the council, Coun Julie Dore, said: "Jessica is now without doubt a local hero. Not only is this a personal fantastic achievement for Jess, her family and her team, but it is also a great success for Sheffield. Sheffield people have taken Jess to their hearts and without doubt her fantastic achievement will be a lasting legacy for the city and I hope will inspire other youngsters in years to come.
"There are several options to mark her success but most importantly we need to consider Jess and her family's feelings on any suggestions to make sure what is done is what they would want to see."
