Heart of Crosspool

“love”

Spreading the love since 2018!
The Ivy Heart of Crosspool currently displays “love” in lights! “Happy Valentine’s”

Scott Barton, the original person to shape the Ivy Heart on the wall of the Hallam football/cricket club wall on Sandygate Road said, “Having driven past the ivy more than once, it struck me that with a bit of trimming it could be turned into a heart. I roped in my pal, Ian Knowles who lives nearby, and did the original trim on Christmas Eve 2018, in the hope that it would make people smile.”

Hearts of Crosspool

When, on Valentine’s night 2019, it was all lit up with red lights, Jenny Hill and her hubby noticed the Ivy Heart and thought how lovely it looked and stopped to take a photo. Then through the pandemic lockdowns, thinking it really needed some love, Jenny contacted Scott, and they set about sprucing it up, giving it some new lights and a positive “Chin up!!

Since then Jenny, joined by her very creative friend Jo and her mum Anne, have had such fun creating every one of the twelve-plus seasonal heart changes they have fashioned up to now.

Jenny, Jo & Anne, love looking after the ivy heart and really appreciate all the wonderful Compliments, Thumbs-ups, Hoots and Smiles people give as they go past!
