At the March 2019 Council meeting the Chairman Cllr Garry Weatherall presented Ecclesfield Library, Julie and Paul Marshall and the Chair of Ecclesfield Library, Mrs Vic Bowden with a Chairman’s Award.  This is in recognition of their long and outstanding commitment to Ecclesfield Library.  They informed the members that they were delighted with receiving a Chairman’s Award and that they are always working hard to bring in funding for the Library.  They thanked Ecclesfield Parish Council for the award.




At the October 2017 Council meeting the Chairman Cllr Michael Appleby presented two Chairman's Awards. Ecclesfield 25th Scout Group, for the Ecclesfield Beavers, Cubs, Youth Leaders and Leaders, received their award for all their hardwork in and around the community.

High Green in Bloom, David and Janet Cooper received their award for their dedication to the community with all their hardwork and their beautiful displays of flowers around the parish.

At the January 2016 Council meeting the Chairman Cllr Sheila Constance presented a Chairman's Award to Barrie Bellamy for his outstanding work within the community.

At the April Council meeting Cllr Garry Weatherall in the absence of Cllr Sheila Constance presented a Chairman's Award to June Higgins from Wheels in Motion following their recent success in Amsterdam representing Great Britain in the wheelchair dancing competition. They competed against 240 competitors from 18 countries and came away with gold, silver and bronze medals. The Councillors thanked them for their outstanding achievements. The group was formed five years ago and were helped with the start up when they received a grant from Ecclesfield Parish Council.



The Chairman's Awards are presented to residents of the Parish who have either worked tirelessly for the benefit of others in the community or who have made outstanding achievements. The Parish Council is extremely proud of these people and the awards are given in recognition of this.
