Violation of Remembrance Storyboard

3 04 2015

Residents may have noticed a number of fly posters which have been displayed in the area regarding a recent court case involving a Barnsley Labour Councillor.

Most of these were taken down immediately and were of little interest to the general public. However, when one was posted on the Remembrance Storyboard at Hollingworth Park on Lower Cresswell Street Pogmoor it was considered that this act of violation/disrespect had gone too far.

Local residents and the Police have been informed.

Gasps of despair were also clearly heard when the incident was announced at a recent  meeting of The Royal British Legion.

Our Sensory Garden Project Report

2 04 2015

Since the siting of the storyboard, the association has been busy trying to raise funds to create a paved route from Lower Cresswell Street up to the storyboard which will lead to a circular area containing 5 raised flower beds and seating.

Each bed will represent one of the 5 senses.

Each bed will also be given the name of  a member of the Whitley Bomber crew which crashed on the site in 1942.

To start the project we require a total of £12942. At present we have £9676, a shortfall of £3266 which equates to 25p per resident of Pogmoor.

If anyone would like to make a small donation directly to our project our bank details are as follows:  Pogmoor Area Residents Association,  HSBC sort code 40-09-12, acc no. 02441888.

Donation boxes will be sited in various shops in Pogmoor. All donations will be very welcome.

The Sensory Garden will be a place  for everyone to visit, remember and admire.

Taylor Wimpey donate £500.00 towards our Memorial Sensory Garden Project.
