Residents from Cranswick Street and Broadfield Road have been busy cleaning up the alleyway between the two streets – removing, amongst other things, a weights deck, a miniature trampoline and a lot of sad, broken toys. Richard kindly took some before, during and after photos to show the effects of the work. Next stop, hopefully, will be flower planters and other additions to make the alleyway a nicer space to use.
As the organisers had to say on Facebook – this is just the beginning! Too many people use and need this library to take it away from the community.
Fallowfield Library is a vital local resource – not just for books and literacy, but also as a space where community groups meet, and a place where people who can’t afford computers and broadband can get online for information, contact and job applications.

During the current icy weather, residents of the Cranswick Square area may find it useful to know that there is a grit bin on the corner of Broadfield Road and Bowes Street. Any local residents can use it, and the council will top it up if the grit gets used up.
