Crookes Community Garden. Caroline and Paul who do a great job of keeping the plot of land on the corner of Northfield Rd and Cobden View Rd beautiful are looking for more people to join them on Monday evenings. 7 – 8pm. No tools needed. Just turn up.

Walkley Community Library Futures Group. A community group of local people have taken on the task of trying to ensure that Walkley Library stays open as a community library. They have already got Associate Library status for the library but are now looking to widen the membership of the group to ensure that local people have a say in what any future library might look like. Do get in touch with them if you could offer any support however small. Email the Walkley Community Library Futures Group at
