Labour councillors’ proud record of work to improve services in Crookes and Crosspool was highlighted at the launch of the campaign for the local elections.
The target is to give the party all three seats in the Crookes and Crosspool ward at the city council poll in May, candidate and serving councillor Anne Murphy told party workers.
“Labour has been working hard for the area and that’s the message we’ll be putting over in the campaign, she said.
Councillor Murphy was joined by fellow candidates Craig Gamble Pugh and Rosemary Telfer at the launch at Crookes Social Club.
Labour can point to a strong record of working with community groups to promote events and improve local services by Councillors Murphy and Geoff Smith, who is retiring at this election.
Councillor Murphy played a major role in helping Crookes Forum organise the first street market last October.
An initiative to combat social isolation, including finding volunteers to help the vulnerable has started in Crookes and Crosspool.
Working with the Friends of the Bolehills funding has been obtained for paths in the park. Progress has been made on better fencing and increased security at Hagg Lane and Marsh Lane allotments.
“The street market was a great success and we have regular collections for a food bank in Crookes,” said Councillor Murphy. “There’s so much more we can do but we need Labour councillors.”
Craig Gamble Pugh – who “came to Sheffield as a student in 1993 and never left” - is standing for the city council for the first time.
Rosmary Telfer, a former librarian who was a councillor in Gleadless Valley, said: “We want to push forward for services in Crookes and Crosspool and fight for Sheffield.”
