Ecclesfield Parish Council is a local authority established under the Local Government Act of 1894. The Parish has been part of the City of Sheffield since 1974, although it is a completely independent authority in its policy and decision-making.

The Parish of Ecclesfield covers an area of about 22 square kilometres of north Sheffield and is one of the most highly populated Parishes in the North of England. It cnameomprises much of Ecclesfield and all of Chapeltown, High Green and Grenoside.

Two of the Parish boundaries are with Barnsley M.B.C. (A61 north of Thorncliffe and Westwood New Road) and Rotherham M.B.C. (M1 Motorway).

There are approximately 40,000 residents with over 14,000 households paying a precept for Parish Council purposes within their Council tax.

PARISH COMMUNITY ROOM

Do you need a meeting room for your community group? Perhaps you would like to start a book club, a discussion group or gardening group and are looking for somewhere to meet. The Parish Council has a community room situated to the rear of the Parish Offices. This room is available for hire by groups within the Parish at a charge of £10.00 per session (morning, afternoon, evening). If you are interested, please contact us either by telephone 0114 2845095, email, or call in to our offices to arrange to view the premises- we are open Monday to Friday 9 am to 12 noon.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING 2014 AND WW1 EXHIBITION

The Parish Council is giving thought to holding an exhibition to commemorate WW1 to be held at the same time as its Macmillan Coffee Morning in September of this year.  If any Parishioners have any memorabilia that they would be willing to loan temporarily or family stories that could be written down, then these could be included in the exhibition.  If you think you have an interesting story, photos, letters, postcards etc. that you would like to share with everyone, then please contact the Parish office on 0114 2845095, email us on ecclesfieldpc@aol.com or call in to the office any morning Monday to Friday.  We would love to hear from you.

The date for the Macmillan Coffee Morning will be decided soon and we will post this on the website.

CHAPELTOWN IN BLOOM and HIGH GREEN IN BLOOM

We have several "In Bloom" groups in our Parish. These groups are all run by hard working volunteers and place many floral displays around the villages and help keep them tidy. Here are some recent photos from Chapeltown in Bloom showing the recent work they have done in the Millennium Garden in Chapeltown.

DONATIONS FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES IN SUPPORT OF OUR COFFEE MORNING

 

Pathways for young people - The Chairman's Charity 2013-2014 (Cllr John Housley)

Pathways opened on the 14 January 2013. It works from a self contained, modern and freshly refurbished building, providing a welcoming safe and comfortable work environment. Students are referred by schools, which have been identified as needing extra support in education, settling at school, having family issues, having fewer or no aspirations and therefore struggle to learn.

The Manager of Pathways is no stranger to Ecclesfield Parish Council, Mrs Pat Booth who has over 30 years experience in this field of work. Pat has developed partnerships with schools and Sheffield Hallam University students, offering them placements.

Pathways are always looking for help and support to carry out its work. Please check out their website on the links page of our website under the local schools section.

THE THORNCLIFFE CONSERVATION GROUP

 

Alan Greaves was a well loved and much respected member of our community and sadly, he lost his life in December 2012. In November 2013 the Parish Council re-named its Community Room in memory of Alan. A plaque was unveiled by Alan's widow Maureen at a service of dedication held at the Community Room and led by the vicar of St Saviours Church.

GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE - SUSSEX ROAD/ARUNDEL ROAD, CHAPELTOWN

Ecclesfield Parish Council Service of Remembrance is held on the nearest Saturday to the 11 November each year. Many improvements have been made to the Garden of Remembrance at the corner of Sussex Road and Arundel Road, Chapeltown (near the Asda) to give residents of the Parish an opportunity to remember all those who have lost their lives in wars and conflicts. If you would like to have the name of a relative, friend or loved one who lived in the Parish added to the Book of Remembrance, please call in at the office with the name and inscription you would like or e-mail the office on ecclesfieldPC@aol.com.
