The rear garden of the library, as designed by Percy Cane

Broomhill Community Trust update.

The Trust was set up in January 2018 to enable us to further our hopes to adapt the current library building into a community hub, accessible by all people. We have applied for grants to explore the feasibility of developing the building into a community hub for Broomhill, and we are cjurrently working with architects and landscape architects on this project.

We have agreed a new access point for all and we are currently working towards developing plans for the rest of the building. This is dependent on obtaining additional funding.

Recently we were awarded a grant under the Pocket Parks Plus scheme and set out to prepare part of the garden so that it could be enjoyed before the major restoration work is done. Our plans were undone by a collapsed wall- so the back garden cannot be currently accessed. Instead we shall create a Pocket Park at the side of the library - work has started on this and it looks much better already. Thanks to our own volunteers and to the Sheffield Conservation volunteers are due here.

If you would like to help us to achieve our aim please see how to Volunteer.

We wish to thank the Freshgate Trust for their recent kind donation of £1000 which will help us to progress our work in developing plans for the upgrade of the building.
