The “Friends of Lydgate Green” are organising a green clean up day for this Saturday!
Friends of Lydgate Green, a small group of local residents who have made themselves responsible for the upkeep of Lydgate green at the corner of Lydgate Lane /Lydgate Hall Crescent in Crosspool, are organising a day to work on the flower beds at the Green.
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.
Crosspool Forum, Car Boot Sale, Saturday, 12th September 8:00 am to 11:30 am
With the relaxation of the government lockdown legislation and the very nature of a car boot sale lending itself to social distancing, we took a decision to go ahead with our car boot sale on Saturday, 12th September, 8.00 -11.30 am, but with strict changes:-
Only pre booked stallholders will be allowed on site, (set-up time 7am). no cars allowed on site after 7.45am. Buyers will not be allowed on site before 8am
To pre-book a £6 pitch email: email@example.com Tele: – 07902 022950/ 0114 2295 670 / 07713 687 955
To help ensure the wellbeing, health & safety of both buyers and sellers, a designated one way system with social distancing will operate. Individuals will be asked to use the provided Gel sanitiser on entering the site and reminded with signage to continue observing social distancing and practice good hand hygiene. Gloves provided if required.
For Covid19 contact tracing details of stall holders & buyers will only be held for 3 months.
Visitors will be reminded to comply with Covid19 stay safe measures when entering the Crosspool Tavern pub/restaurant .
Schools and educational settings are reopening this week.
What is the Sheffield City Council doing to help your child’s school reopen in a way that allows it to function while reducing the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.
To help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) your child’s school will have systems in place to help keep children, staff and their families stay safe and will have contacted you by email or post to tell you what you need to know before your school reopens.
From 1st September the Sheffield City Council are launching a consultation on the ‘Sheffield Plan Issues and Options document 2020’.
The consultation is for anyone who lives, works, has business in, or visits our city. It outlines the key opportunities and challenges for the city, and sets out some issues and options for consideration.
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 onchange.org requesting that the Sheffield City Council remove these temporary changes as soon as possible.
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.
