Community Webpages – Fulwood Ward

22 Nov

Excerpt from webpage

The Friends of the Porter Valley are a conservation group concerned mainly with the area of parks, woodlands, and farmland of the valley which is in the south-west of Sheffield. (South Yorkshire, UK). The group was set up in July 1994 and became a registered charity in 1995 (Reg Number 1069865). Our purpose is to preserve and enhance the natural and historical characteristics of the Porter Valley, between Hunters Bar and Porter Clough.

Excerpt from webpage

The original objectives, written in 1964, were “To preserve space for recreation and to provide cultural and social activities for the residents of Fulwood and Lodge Moor”. These few words succinctly capture what the Association is all about. We are proud to have achieved so much in such a little time, and we continue to seek new ways of encouraging a good family, social and community atmosphere in our small part of the universe. If one of our members suggests a new activity, we encourage it, support it, nurture it and watch over it until the new section is able to be self-supporting. We are totally non-sectarian, non-political, and non-profit making.
