Communications received (E.g. on ).

  • Tegwen Roberts of the East Peak Innovation Partnership has emailed us offering us a copy of the video they took of the Heritage Board unveiling, and saying that it is fine for us to use it to publicise the project, provided that we don't charge anybody for it. [Unless anybody appearing on the video objects I will try and put it on http:// If anybody also wants it on disk just let me know -JP]

Information watch

  • The Safer Neighbourhood boundaries are changing and our area is being renamed "Northern Safer Neighbourhood Team". See!/sgthammond.
  • The Northern Community Assembly¬ is funding some more "No cold Calling Zone" signs, and would like to hear from residents who feel the scheme would help them.
  • The petition by the residents of Eva Radcliffe Care Home requesting traffic calming measures on Yew Lane and Stocks Hill will be considered as a part of a large highway scheme when sufficient funds are available. The Council's report¬ on this found that two injury accidents had occurred in the last five years, one when a car turning right into Stocks Hill collided with a car turning left into Stocks Hill, the other when a vehicle going up Stocks Hill lost control on ice. [presumably, this will be considered with our request for a crossing on Church Street, and the issue of speed and HGVs on Wheel Lane mentioned by the Northern Assembly Newsletter¬ - JP]
  • Temporary traffic signals are scheduled¬ for Town End Road between 16th - 18th April, but the work on Cinder Hill Lane should finish on the 16th.
  • Mobile speed cameras¬ will be in operation this week on Chapeltown Rd., Ecclesfield.
  • The Star¬ says that Sheffield Council is proposing to cut the opening times of its Household Waste Recycling Centres to 4 days a week.
