Snow causes disruption in Crosspool

Snow falling in Crosspool over the last 48 hours has caused problems on local roads and disruption to public transport and events.

Major roads were gritted in preparation for the snowfall, which was over 10cm deep in some areas.

On Friday night, 51 buses were terminating at Crosspool instead of Lodge Moor, and Gleadless Town End instead of Charnock going the other direction. As of 12pm Saturday, the service was reported to be running as normal. Latest updates to public transport are on the Travel South Yorkshire website.

The main roads through Crosspool were also clear of snow on Saturday morning. However, surface snow and ice on side roads were continuing to cause problems for cars and pedestrians.

If you fancy helping clear the pitch at Sandygate, Hallam FC are looking for volunteers. Soup and sandwiches will be provided for anyone who turns up to lend a hand!

An Open Day at Hillside Harvest has also fallen victim to the weather.

Do also check up on your neighbours who may feel isolated and vulnerable during the cold spell.

    Thank you for interesting meeting last night.
    For information Re the Plastic that is NOT REQUIRED IN BLUE BIN.
    I chatted to Veolia chap a couple of years back when he was outside Spar. – he came to inform people.

    If you take it to Recycling site then in effect OIL is being saved.

    If you place in Black Bin then all is burned and the energy is used to heat various buildings in the City.
