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.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING 2014 AND WW1 EXHIBITION

The Parish Council held its annual Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 26th September. As usual, this was very well attended and we raised an amount of £557.30. We would like to extend our grateful thanks to all who supported us and helped to make the morning a success.

Our local history groups put on an exhibition in our Council chamber to commemorate the start of World War 1 and this was a great success. We have had received much praise for their work, and we also extend our grateful thanks to them for giving their time to put on this exhibition for us.

ANNUAL SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE

The Parish Council will be holding its annual Service of Remembrance on Saturday 8th November 2014 commencing at 10.45 am at the Memorial Garden at the junction of Sussex Road and Arundel Road. All are welcome to attend.

 

WORK EXPERIENCE STUDENT

For the first time, the Parish Council has had a student from Ecclesfield School on work experience. Her name was Emma and she was with us for two weeks. During that time the staff explained the work that they carry out at the Parish Council and she assisted them. She met many of our councillors and went on field trips with some of them to view our notice boards and chairmens seats. She also attended one of our Council meetings and this gave her an insight in to what a Parish Council is all about. Emma said that she had enjoyed her time at the Parish Council and the staff enjoyed her visit immensely. Below are some photos of her time with us.

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.

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.
