Sharrow Vale Community Association

SVCA news

Recent activities

Action has been taken to clean up the area around the car park next to The Lescar. All the rubbish, graffiti and weeds have been removed. Planters have been placed in the area and climbing plants trained up trellis to cover the walls and prevent further graffiti. There are also plans to renovate the pocket park behind the church in Eastwood Road.  The planting has been neglected for a while and so the beds will be replanted with flowering shrubs and perennials to improve the appearance and to attract wildlife and insects.

Future plans

The SVCA is making moves to ensure that Sharrow Vale Road will be fully festive this Christmas with the installation of festive lights along the road from Hunters Bar to The Ora gallery. We are just awaiting the necessary planning permissions in order to finalise the arrangements.

Hunters Bar school is planning to construct a green wall around their playground in order to protect the children from traffic fumes. SVCA is offering their help and assistance where required and is donating some money towards the project.

The SVCA will also be working with a group of students from Sheffield Hallam University Architecture department on a project which aims to research how communities might play a role in moving towards a carbon neutral future. The aim is to create a vision for Sharrow Vale road in 2050.

Next meeting of the SVCA

Thursday 26th September 7pm in the Well Church on Ecclesall Road. Please come and join us if you are interested in getting involved. New people and new ideas are always more than welcome!

Sharrow Vale Community Association comprises a group of residents who meet every month to discuss issues in the area. The aim is to to improve the area by undertaking such tasks as removal of graffiti, litter picking and generally working to create a more pleasant environment. From time to time the association also organises community events designed to be fun and bring the community together. One of the most popular and successful ventures has been the establishment and organisation of the Sharrow Vale market.

Get involved

SVCA meets once a month to discuss actions and activities for the area and its residents. If you would like to get involved with your local community, please get in touch via Facebook or email. We’re always happy to have new ideas and volunteers!

Sharrow Vale planters

Most people will have seen and enjoyed the planters full of flowers which have been installed and are being maintained by members of the SVCA. Two planters have been placed near to the gates of the primary school with involvement of pupils from the school who are now helping to maintain them.
