Due to the present coronavirus pandemic, all of our activities have been suspended until further notice. We will update the website when we have any further information.
We held our development day in June, with many ideas generated from over 20 people who attended.
One of the outcomes from that day is recognising our need for new Trustees. Trustees are the group of people who govern the organisation – setting future direction, making sure we’re doing what we say we’ll do and making sure everything’s legal, amongst other things.
We’re looking for people who will help take Green City Action into the next stage of development. People who have a keen interest in all things environmental and climate, reducing consumption and also in working to tackle poverty.
We would love people with skills in strategic thinking, fundraising, managing organisations and financial management.
Here is our Trustee role description

We are bringing back the popular Repair Cafe, Bitfixit and Toolbank event, after a very popular launch in March.
We have had lots of inquiries about whether we would be hosting a Repair Cafe again at Abbeyfield Park House and the good news is that the next event is on Saturday October 5th, 10am-4pm.
Everyone is welcome to bring things that need to be repaired. Our expert volunteers will definitely have a look at it, though they can’t promise that they will be able to fix everything!
Toolbank will be offering a tool sharpening service, so if you have any shears or blades that need sharpening do bring them along.
Bitfixit will also be there, offering their usual IT fixit service.
- Saturday 5th October, 10am-4pm
- Abbeyfield Park House, Abbeyfield Park, Sheffield, S4 7AT
- Parking available on Abbeyfield Road/ regular buses to Pitsmoor and Burngreave Roads
We are extremely pleased to announce the re-name and relaunch of our community toolbank. The Toolbank has been running for over 2 decades and has faithfully been hiring out DIY and gardening tools at low prices to our local communities.
On 23rd March, between 10am and 4pm, Toolbank will be open for anyone to come and have a look – as well as offering a tool sharpening service and running a ‘tool swap’ for anyone who has tools they would like to swap with others (good quality please!).
We are also partnering with Repair Sheffield and Bitfixit to run a repair cafe – where you can bring anything that needs repairing and a repairer will give some quality time to fixing it! People’s Kitchen Pitsmoor will be runnining one of their regular cooking events between 2-4pm.
Over the last two weeks, Rick has been making Comfrey feed:
- Chop comfrey at the roots.
- Stuff a small water butt full of comfrey; fill to the top with water.
- Leave for at least 3-4 weeks for it to break down.
- Run off the resulting brown liquid into containers and store in a cool dark place.
- Use to feed fruiting tomatoes and squashes. (1 part comfrey; 10 parts water).
