Recognising the importance to dispose of our real Christmas trees sustainably rather than end up in landfill, which is both costly to the taxpayer and the environment,
On Sunday morning 8th January, the Crosspool Forum had arranged a brief window for the community to drag their discarded Christmas trees to the forecourt in front of local travel agents “Direct Travel.”
The huge number of Christmas trees brought for recycling were soon reduced to wood chippings for mulch, outdoor firewood, animal bedding and pathways locally.
It was gratifying to hear the residents of Crosspool appreciate the hard work of the volunteers and the convenience of being able to dispose of their Christmas trees environmentally friendly.
Just a few of the guys and gals who turned out to brave a cold and dank Sunday morning to help adorn a festival of 22 Christmas trees with twinkling lights, before putting them up in the Crosspool shopping precinct to celebrate Christmas 22.
Through the hard work of our community volunteers and the generosity of Crosspool businesses, the Crosspool Forum has once again provided (Valley Side Garden Centre) Christmas trees, each decorated by groups of individuals, to bring cheer and joy to shoppers using the precinct.
Steve and Ian would like to thank the volunteers and local businesses, without whose help and support the Crosspool Forum simply couldn’t run this event
A special mention must go to the staff of Hudson’s café, who once again generously donated cups of tea and coffee for all the volunteers, and to Direct Travel for allowing us to use their concourse for preparing the Christmas trees.
Could you look after a life-saving assistance dog of the future?
Sheffield-based national charity “Support Dogs” is urgently looking for volunteers to look after its puppies and young dogs before and during their training.
“Support Dogs”, whose training centre is in Brightside, trains assistance dogs for children with autism and adults with epilepsy and a range of serious medical conditions, enabling them to lead safer, more independent lives.
None of its puppies or dogs-in-training ever spends a night in kennels but stay with local dog-loving families in and around Sheffield. Due to high demands for its services, which are provided free of charge, the charity now needs more people to volunteer as puppy socialisers – who look after pups aged between eight weeks and 15 months – and foster carers – who look after young dogs in training, in the evenings and at weekends. Lots of support is provided, including holiday cover, and regular puppy classes.

After the pandemic restrictions were lifted, we all very much welcomed getting back to some form of normality, so it was a delight to see our wonderful community come together once again to have lots of fun and enjoy the first Crosspool Summer Fayre since July 2019
There’s not a child in Crosspool who hasn’t said ‘Good morning’ to Lydgate Infants School crossing patrol legend Eddy Parton. Every school day up to his last patrol on April 1st, 2021, Eddie, with his reassuring smile, would be on patrol to carefully help children to cross Lydgate Lane safely. In recognition and appreciation of keeping children safe, Eddie was invited to officially open this year’s Crosspool Summer Fayre on Saturday, July 2nd.
Blessed with good weather, everything from the Bric-a-Brac, Craft, Book, and delicious Food and Drink stalls, to a wide range of fun activities, games, and competitions designed for families to have lots of fun, a superb bouncy castle/slide for the children, and the Holly Hagg Alpacas were kept very busy throughout the afternoon. So much so, that despite the usual indoor entertainment being somewhat curtailed, due to the present spike in Covid, the day was a huge success for the community.
Thank you to the many people and businesses, who donated prizes, bought raffle tickets, donated prizes, and came and supported us on the day. We would also like to thank the many residents, their families, and friends who helped on stalls and who attended or volunteered at this year’s Summer Fayre. A fantastic achievement for all involved, especially Steve and Ian who worked incredibly hard coordinating all aspects of the day to ensure that the event was a great success.
Come down for an afternoon of Alpaca life drawing at Holly Hagg Community Farm of Alpacas. It’s the perfect setting to get creative and look at the lovely view of Rivelin Valley!
