Recent Events 2019/2020
Burncross Gateway Garden:-
Volunteers continue to maintain the wildflower area, feed the many birds and paint discovery pebbles for the local children. We have know created a learning zone for young people and continue to encourage local schools to take part in our activities.
The lease agreement between Sheffield City Council and ourselves will expire at the end of March 2020. We have applied to renew the lease for a further 3 years.
We have continued to empty and refill our sponsored flower boxes with new flowers and bulbs, helped by Amey and our volunteers. We also regularly cut the grass at the top of Bracken Hill, Hallwood Road and Hawkins Avenue.
We can now report that the tarmac has been laid and the new flower box is in place and planted.
Local school partnerships:-
Pupils from Windmill Hill and Angram Bank Primary built scarecrows for the Gateway Garden ( did you think there were people in the garden?)
All children from Windmill Hill school with our support took part in the Great British Spring Clean event in April 2019.
Games and Quiz evenings:-
We have had regular events to raise funds for the 4 local Xmas trees with lights displayed around Burncross. (Also with thanks to donations from Ecclesfield Parish Council and the local pubs).
Due to the Covid pandemic we have been unable to have our normal regular committee meetings since March 2020. We hope to resume these in 2021.
We have still managed to keep the local area tidy with our socially distanced litterpicks on the 1st Sunday of every month. Meet in the Acorn pub carpark at 10pm. All welcome.
