How the north ward pots were spent this year

20 Mar

Each year the ward councillors across the city are given a ward pot. This is to spend on local projects to help improve the community. As well as giving grants to many community groups to help them keep up their great work, some specific projects were funded through the ward pot.

This year the Stannington Ward Councillors supported the Friends of Stannington Library to take on running the library.

In the West Ecclesfield Ward the Councillors chose to fund Activity Sheffield to run summer activities in the area.

A pilot project to get befriending volunteers linked to lunch clubs was set up in the East Ecclesfield Ward.

And in Stocksbridge the Steel Valley Project was giving funding to help them take on and support extra volunteers.

Here is a message about a project that a group of University of Sheffield students are doing about the Ecclesfield area –

We are a group of final year students for the University of Sheffield and are currently undertaking a module in which we need to develop an idea for a social enterprise, which would operate with the aim of keeping Ecclesfield library open. We would be extremely grateful to hear the thoughts of Ecclesfield residents through the survey below. All responses will be totally anonymous and you are free to stop the survey at any time. Should you wish to withdraw your response (within the confines of what is possible) or have any questions, please contact through the following email address:
