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.

Ecclesfield Civil Parish Past & Present Archiving Project


Our Past & Present Archiving Project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) until the end of October 2016. We aim to create an on-line easily accessible collection of material (a digital archive) about the history of the Civil Parish area and display the material on a new Ecclesfield District Archive website. This means that it will be easier for a wide range of people to find out about the local history of the area just by looking it up on their computer. During the project we will be:

  • gathering material which will be sorted, catalogued, indexed and digitised to create the archive;
  • running training courses to develop skills in all aspects of archiving; and in interviewing and recording memories;
  • supporting young and older people to enable them to interview and record residents talking about their life experiences in the local area; and
  • organising family workshops, drop-in activities, exhibitions and displays to publicise the project and local history.

The project co-ordinator, Christine Handley, is working with the local history groups across the area (Chapeltown, Ecclesfield, Grenoside and High Green) who are all helping to guide the project. The archive will be a resource for schools, other groups and individuals to both share information and learn more about local history. There will be plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved, you don’t have to be a history expert. Young or old, everyone has a story to tell and a photograph or memory to share.
For more details of events and training sessions, and to get involved, please contact, Christine, at the Council Offices, Mortomley Lane, High Green, Sheffield S35 3HS; telephone: 0114 2845095; or email: christine.handley@ecclesfield-pc.gov.uk

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING 2015

The Parish Council is hoping to hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning later this year. The date will be posted on the website when this has been decided.

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
