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 https://www.facebook.com/ActionForStannington/ or via our web site http://www.actionforstannington.org/ 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.

Its all fun and memories at the 1940’s themed dementia café in Stocksbridge as volunteers turn out in their best 1940’s dress to encourage the flowing memories of the people that use the service.

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.
