Pocket Park

Have you visited Sharrow Vale’s revamped pocket park on Eastwood Road? Two of the SVCA volunteers have been working hard during lock down to clear and re-plant this little area of garden. The plants have been selected to be attractive to bees and wildlife. They have even planted a selection of vegetables for the community to pick and enjoy!

 

 

 SVCA meeeting

SVCA meetings are normally held on the last Thursday of each month at 7pm in the Well Church on Ecclesall Road. However these have been temporarily suspended during the lock down. They’ll be back as soon as possible.

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!

Recent SVCA activities

Car park 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.

Pocket park The pocket park behind the church in Eastwood Road has been renovated during lock down and now offers a small but perfectly formed oasis of calm and colour.  The planting includes a vatiety of ‘cut and come again’ vegetables. Visitors are invited to take and try some of the produce.

Hunters Bar School The SVCA always endeavors to work closely with Hunters Bar school and have recently made a donation towards the construction of a green wall around their playground in order to protect the children from traffic fumes.

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.
