Pandemic Monument Design Competition

To mark the Pandemic, we have been working with members of the Parish, Friends of Chapeltown Park, Chapeltown Forum and Sheffield City Council Park’s team and are looking to place a monument to mark the pandemic in Chapeltown Park overlooking the Parish, with smaller monument areas in other parks across the Parish. We have invited children from the Parish to submit their designs to influence the design, by way of a competition with a prize for the winner. We will also be using painted rocks within the monuments and would love donations of these. Please click the links below for the information and entry form. All entries can be either handed in at your child’s school or emailed to emmamainwaring@ecclesfield-pc.gov.uk – The deadline is the 29th March…

Angram Bank hedge alterations

The hedge that currently obscures sight lines between the playground and the building in Angram Bank Park will be removed. This work is planned to be carried out by the end of the week. The hedge will be cut down and chipped initially, and then the contractor will return to grind out the stumps at a slightly later date. The Parks team will then soil and seed the area.

The reason for doing this work in two instalments is that we wanted to get the hedge cutting done in plenty of time before bird nesting season.

Grenoside Park – Love your trees.

Sheffield City Council’s Parks and Countryside have started planting whips now in Grenoside Park. It was hoped that this would be Community event however, due to the Coronavirus restrictions this unfortunately had to be cancelled. The trees are being planted by contractors so that they don’t miss the planting season, however, we are hopeful to have a ‘Love Your Trees’ day once the restrictions ease where children and community members can offer the little whips some TLC to help them grow.There is also going to be planting on Charlton Brook this season as well.
