8th Oct 2015 (Thursday) at 10:00: Work party
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.
We thank the following 2015 contributors to Ecclesfield in Bloom...
* Everybody who contributed to,
or bought at our Spring 2015 Plant Sale and Coffee Morning
* All our members who have worked so hard on Ladycroft,
The Square, and other areas
Sponsorship plaques have now arrived, and will be attached to the planters shortly.
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 ...
21st November 2015 (Tuesday) 10:00 - 12:00 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.
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
us then I will put it here).

We enjoyed wonderful weather, while we re-oiled the benches between St. Mary's Church and Priory Road,
and generally tidied up the area.
16th May 2015 (Saturday 10am - 12) Ecclesfield in Bloom Plant Sale
A big thank you to everyone who helped organise and supply our Spring plant sale
on The Green outside St. Mary's Church.
The event raised £110 for Bloom funds by selling plants, plus further amounts from cards, raffle, and donations.
19th March 2015 (Thursday): Work party
We will be working in The Square/Stocks Hill from 10:00 in the morning.
If you want to help plant, weed, or generally tidy up, just come along.
There should also be some crocus bulbs available for planting in the Village Green.
Village Christmas Tree
We have now planted a permanent Village Christmas Tree.
Hopefully it will continue to grow, so that we will be able to decorate it this December.
(I don't have a photograph of the Christmas Tree yet, but if somebody emails one to
then I will put it here).
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
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.
