On the Agenda Items

 (2) The next reminiscence session is in Ecclesfield Library, on Wednesday 29th March, at 15:00.

 (3) Although they are running the Streets Ahead Roadshows, Amey still say that complaints and comments should go through Sheffield City Council. This could be relevant to us since Amey have started resurfacing minor roads and pavements and, for example, there is a fear that they are asphalting right up to the trunk of trees, rather than as described by Professor Ian Rotherham.


Information watch

The items in this section will not be gone through one by one, but can be discussed in any other business if any member wishes to bring them up.


Issues from previous minutes

If any members can help, or want to bring any of the following up for any other reason, they can do so in any other business.


*     Our archive needs quite a bit of work to get going - perhaps as a window to our physical archive.


*     Designs for the pop-up banners are still in progress.


*      We have a fireproof trunk for storing archive material. Members might prefer a more generally accessible location if one can be found [As well as perhaps other things such as our Gazebo].


*      We still have plans to survey major trees within the Conservation Area (we have just lost two major trees from the land between St Mary’s Lane and Ecclesfield Park).


*      We are still encouraging Sheffield City Council to proceed with their project to get their alcohol licensing system on-line so that everybody can see the opening times etc. which apply to each of the premises in the area. Meanwhile, we are continuing to check their manual list of licence applications.
