Ecclesfield Conservation Group – 4th birthday celebration!

Ecclesfield looks forward while  looking back….

Ecclesfield Conservation Group was formed in 2008 to protect and conserve the character of the built and undeveloped parts of the village and its immediate surroundings. It is celebrating its fourth birthday by unveiling a heritage interpretation panel in the heart of the village, together with a full colour free leaflet. Both of these will be of interest to visitors and residents alike.

Written with help from local historians Mel and Joan Jones, the production of this information on Ecclesfield’s working past has been fully funded by the East Peak Innovation Partnership.

The interpretation panel will be unveiled on Ladycroft Meadow (which is at the northern end of St. Mary’s Lane, near the Black Bull public house) at 1100 on Saturday 24th March 2012. Refreshments will be available afterwards in the nearby St. Mary’s Church, courtesy of John Fairest Funeral Home.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join the Group at this event, to learn more about some of the things from times past that have helped to shape the present day Ecclesfield. The Ecclesfield Conservation Group now looks forward to continuing to safeguard features of interest in the village and to sharing these special features with local people and with visitors to the area as well. Anyone who would like to join the Group will be warmly welcomed.
