Christmas in East Ecclesfield Libraries

6 Dec

On Friday 13th December, Chapeltown will host singers and music groups from all 6 local schools from 9.30 am to noon. Refreshments will be served! This has become a big community event, with customers saying ‘ I don’t think Christmas has started until I’ve been to this!’

On Wednesday 18th December, Ecclesfield Library is having a festive coffee morning at 10am, with all proceeds going to Weston Park Cancer Care Charity.


People requesting money from residents while imitating Amey Staff

6 Dec

I have just received this information and thought it was important to pass on. Please read the email below.


I’m writing to let you know about reports we have had of bogus callers impersonating Amey staff.

The reports have come from the Mosborough area where people impersonating Amey staff have called on residents, saying they have resurfaced their drives and asked for money.

This is a scam – Amey do not resurface private drives or do any work on private property and do not request money from residents. Even if the people look official (wearing branded clothing), residents should not hand money over at any time and if asked to, should report this to the Police by calling 101.

We are in contact with the Police about this issue and are keen to let people know about the bogus callers. I would be really grateful if you could let others know about them and not to hand any money over. Although the reports have come from Mosborough, I am keen to let people know across the city, as Amey are working in many different places across Sheffield.

If people want to check details of Amey works this is best done by emailing, calling 0114 273 4567 or looking online at

Best wishes
