Ecclesfield Parish Council continues to support local community groups, charities and
businesses throughout the Parish during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Ecclesfield Parish Council work to look after the Parish’s best interests. Throughout the
pandemic, the council have been trying to help the local community by opening up their
offices as a local food bank drop off point, and then passing on all donations to High Green
Food Bank for distribution. This will continue for the foreseeable future and if you would like
to drop any donations in, please just pop by to the Council offices on Mortomley Lane, High
Green, from 9:30am – 11:30am Monday – Friday where drop offs adhere to all social
distancing.
Other efforts include issuing grants to local community groups amongst others, which have
continued throughout lockdown, most recently with Chairman, John Housley, presenting a
cheque to Mick Appleby, Manager of Chapelgreen Advice Centre in Chapeltown. Mick said,
“Thanks to this grant. It ensures that the advice centre can continue to help people from the
Parish, as well as surrounding areas.” The centre provides free and confidential information,
advice and guidance, to citizens on a range of areas including welfare, benefits, employment
rights, money, debt and housing rights. A service which is invaluable, particularly in the
current climate.
