Picture of Stocks Hill We have done some weeding of the border in front of the Square opposite to The Stocks and Ecclesfield Business Centre, and put wood chips down. However, more work is needed, so a work party has been arranged and at which bags will be provided and the resulting garden waste disposed of.

  Mr. Gerald Smart  

We are planning a memorial to one of our members, Mr Gerald Smart. Gerald showed us how to plant fuchsias around the square, and in hanging baskets, and inspired the logo at the top of this page. Other messages and tributes can be added to his entry in ... Sheffield Star.


  21st November 2015 (Tuesday) 10:00 - 12:00 Christmas Fayre  

Christmas Fayre The "Ecclesfield in Bloom" Annual Christmas Fayre will be on the morning of 21st November 2015, in St. Mary's Church. There will be hand made gifts, cakes, and lots of other things to see and buy - all in aid of Ecclesfield in Bloom.

  Planters  

We are hoping to move two of the planters currently on Priory Road back to their original positions on Church Street. We think that the road and pavement works that necessitated their removal have finished, and they can again be enjoyed in their proper places.

We are also in process of replacing, and cleaning the white plaques attached to the planters, so if any firms would like to sponsor one, then please get in touch - e.g. by emailing .
(I don't have a photograph of the planters in their current position on Priory Road, but if somebody emails one to then I will put it here).

Caution: LadyCroft Meadow, and other areas we look after contain daffodils which are poisonous, as well as wild flowers and native trees, many of which protect themselves by being poisonous to humans and animals. Cuttings or debris may be especially dangerous, since animals may not be put off from eating them, while some of their poisons last 6 months. Nothing on these areas should therefore be eaten or grazed.
