This Saturday 19th September, for a couple of hours from 10am, volunteers will be weeding, moving plants, litter picking and generally tidying up the area.

It’s a family affair, anyone interested in helping are invited to come along.

Ever mindful of the current pandemic and social distancing, please bring your own gloves, forks, spades & buckets!  

There are gaps to be filled, so any spare perennials for donation are also very welcome.

Temporary Road Changes Petition

Broomhill parking bay closure.

As a result of the temporary closure of the parking bays in the Broomhill shopping precinct and the potential devastating effect the new pedestrian arrangements and loss of short stay parking will have on local trade, Williamson Hardware has posted a petition on requesting that the Sheffield City Council remove these temporary changes as soon as possible.

Broomhill Temporary Road Changes

To give pedestrians more space for social distancing, The Sheffield City Council has temporarily closed the angled parking bays in the Broomhill shopping precinct, on Fulwood Road.

The footways on Glossop Road, between Fulwood Road and Peel Street and between Peel Street and the end of the pavement opposite Westbourne Road, have also been temporarily extended by 1.5metres, to give additional footway space

As these measures are only intended to be a temporary social distancing measure, the Sheffield City Council would welcome your feedback on them.

If they work well, and local businesses and residents are happy with the changes, the council have suggested that they may possibly consider, if they work well for everyone and after a full consultation process with local businesses and residents, look at making these changes permanent.
