Stannington Ward Priorities 2018/19

22 May

Stannington Ward Priorities 2018/19

Following consideration of statistics, consultation, Councillor enquiries and input from local service providers, your Councillors for the Stannington ward have identified the following priorities for 2018/19 that we will focus on in partnership with local service deliverers, community organisations and local businesses.

1    Our Environment and Heritage

  • Develop the capacity and support local community organisations that deliver activities to improve the environment
  • Work with AMEY and the Council’s Transport, Traffic and Parking Services to ensure that residents are kept well informed about the ‘Streets Ahead’ road improvement programme
  • Our Ward as a rich heritage and we want to work with local people, groups, services and other partners to maintain, protect, and promote this heritage.


  1. Supporting Community Life
  • Develop the capacity and support local community groups so that they are able to run a range of community activities or services across the ward, particularly those that help tackle social isolation. We particularly want to support areas of the Ward where there is currently a limited number of active community groups and organisations
  • Provide opportunities for local organisations to promote themselves and their activities
  1. Community Safety
  • Tackle anti-social behaviour and issues of drug and alcohol abuse in identified ‘hot-spot’ areas across the ward.


Further Information and Contacts

For further information on these priorities, please contact the Community Services Officer for this ward on (0114) 2053598 or your ward councillors –

North Sheffield’s “Whats on Where” Guide – find out whats happening near to you

11 Apr


As we get older it is important to remain as active as possible, not only to keep in physical shape, but it has been proven that exercising and socialising with others is key to improving mental health.

In an attempt to combat social isolation across Sheffield, Home Instead have put together a What’s On Where Guide which provides a list of easily accessible activities in Sheffield such as; Choir Groups, Dance Classes, Art groups, Lunch Clubs, Coffee Mornings and many more!

Home Instead hope their guide will encourage people to get involved in the community and ultimately, reduce social isolation.

Take a look at the Home Instead WOW guide using the link below!


If you would like more information about the WOW Guide or organise an activity within Sheffield and would like it to feature in the next WOW Guide then call Home Instead on 01142 469666

Floral Displays for Stannington in time for Spring

12 Mar

Stannington TARA applied to Stannington Ward Pot for help with bringing the rose gardens back to life in Stannington.

The poor state of the rose gardens leads to a feeling of apathy. By improving the look and feel of the park people are more likely to respect this environment. This work helps generate a feel good attitude to park users.

By utilising Action for Stannington and their volunteers for this project it in vibes a sense of ownership and caring.

Following a suspension of the work due to the snowy and icy weather, the timber planter by Stannington Library has been installed.

This is part of an initiative titled: “Welcome to Stannington” in which a number of floral displays are positioned in public spaces around the village and in the park to give our area a welcoming feel.

The funding comes from Sheffield City Council – Ward Pot and from Tesco’s Bags of Help.

In the next few weeks the volunteers will adorn the planters with flowers and shrubs. We are also on the lookout for kind residents who live near the planters to help with the on-going TLC of the nursery stock. Please contact us on Facebook or via our web site if you are willing to help.

The Stannington Ward Councillors encourage joint working and sustainable projects and awarded this project £500 from the Stannington Ward Pot 2017/18.

A little smiler SID on Rodney Hill !!

1 Feb

Stannington Ward Councillors funded the installation of a Smiley SID on Rodney Hill from the Stannington Ward pot.

Councillor David Baker – Traffic speeds down Rodney Hill have been a concern for a long time.  Parents and teachers are very worried particularly about the safety of children crossing the road near the school.    In the past we local ward Councillors have  supported the school in their request for traffic calming measures and for funding of a school crossing warden, unfortunately all attempts were unsuccessful.  Our recent request for a Traffic Speed Indicator ( Smiley Sid ) was again turned down by the Council due to lack of available funding.  As all local Councillors have an annual ward pot for small community projects we decided traffic calming was important and we should use some of our budget to provide a Smiley Sid.
James Connolly the Loxley Primary Headmaster – I (and the school community) have been very concerned about children’s safety since the removal of our crossing patrol service last year and this is a positive step.
