Crosspool Christmas

Crosspool Community Christmas

Observing social distancing, the Joy of Christmas came to Crosspool.A Brass Quartet played Christmas carols in the precinct and thanks to the Crosspool; Forum volunteers, the shops are adorned with decorated festive Christmas trees.

Making their way to a nativity doorway, up a footpath lined with over 80 decorated jam jars for the ‘Nights of Light’, visitors to Tapton Hill Church were just blown away with people’s creativity as they passed a wooden thanksgiving tree festooned with homemade decorated baubles and amazed by  the beautifully decorated doors and windows on a small Nativity trail around the Tapton Hill neighbourhood.

If you would like to show your support to our local smaller business community, and haven’t already taken the opportunity to follow the Crosspool Nativity trail around Crosspool shops, you have until the 24th December to take part.

Collect your story sheet from St Columba’s Church; or email: otherwise just click on the download.

When you have completed the story sheet; email: to arrange to collect your gift.

Don’t forget to wave at the shop keepers and make them smile this Christmas

The Census Is Coming

The census is coming. By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport.

The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.

It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it’d be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan and fund public services.

In one way or another, your information touches the lives of every single person living in England and Wales, whether it’s through using census information to plan new schools, doctors’ surgeries or bike lanes.

Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, government officials dealing with applications you’ve made or payments or services you receive cannot see it.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let the ONS know.

Everyone should have the support they need to fill in the census. If you, or anyone you know, needs help, there’s a wide range of support services available.

These include a contact centre that can give you help over the phone and guidance in a range of languages and accessible formats, including paper questionnaires and large print.

If you need help or have any questions, visit

  • prioritise public transport routes into and across the city centre
  • create high quality ‘green streets’ and more pedestrianised areas to improve the environment.

Detailed information and how you can get involved are found above on the Connecting Sheffield website.
