South Yorkshire Transport – Parent Survey

South Yorkshire transport are asking those parents who have children who attend school via public transport, for their help by filling in a survey.

This survey will enable any improvements which are needed to public transport to support their journeys to be explored before September. The survey asks about a child’s home to school travel needs from September, how a child travelled before COVID-19 and alternative travel options that are available.

If your child uses public transport to commute to and from school, or will do in September, please click the link to fill in the survey.

Ecclesfield Parish Archives are looking for submissions for a new collection….

Empty supermarket shelves due to Coronvirus pandemic

‘Life Through Lockdown’ will be the new collection featured within Ecclesfield Parish Archives.

We all know this has been a historic event which people will look back on for generations to come, so at Ecclesfield Parish Archives they are putting together a collection of photographs, videos, etc to document such a momentous time. They are hoping to curate a really diverse collection showing all aspects of ‘life through lockdown’ from the empty streets and empty shelves to more social photographs showing families surviving life in lockdown, homeschooling, socially distant street parties and anything else which will give generations of the future a real feel for what life was like during the pandemic.

If you have anything you would like to contribute, please email emmamainwaring@ecclesfield-pc.gov.uk
