News & Updates!

June/July 2017…

  • WILDLIFE TRAIL UPDATENorfolk Park: We are very sad to say that we have removed the trail from Norfolk Park as half of the signs have been damaged and/or stolen. We have relocated the remaining signs to Weston Park so that they can still be enjoyed. Please note that the Ant and Emporer Moth signs are missing, if anyone spots them please let us know. Sadly the Squirrel was damaged and had been left but is now missing. The Sycamore Tree sign is on it’s way to us and we hope to have it back out soon.
  • Hillsborough Park: We have also had multiple issues at Hillsborough Park with damage, we have already repaired/relocated signs on three occassions but sadly we have not been able to replace them all. The Horse Chestnut sign has been damaged and we have only been able to find half of it and the Woodlouse sign is missing in action! If you spot either of these please let us know!
  • We are SUPER excited to be launching a WILDLIFE TRAIL across 3 of Sheffield’s parks this summer! This is a brand new project for 2017 with the aim of providing a free activity that families can do in their own time and at their own pace. The trail is approved as an extra-curricular activity by the Sheffield Children’s University, so make sure you send off for your 3 CU points! FOR MORE INFO CLICK HERE

  • We are thrilled to be running some FREE play sessions over the summer holidays with our good friends at the Moor Market and Crystal Peaks Market Place. Make sure you come along and join in the fun! For dates, times and more info check here.
  • The Little Sheffield Show – thank you so so much to everyone who came along and supported our FOURTH Little Sheffield Show – a whopping 2,000 of you visited the Millennium Galleries to meet all the local service providers and we had even more in the Winter Gardens and Millennium Square. Just incredible! Thank you for the support, it is the only reason we continue to run this event ❤️
  • biglotteryfund_logo_blueWe have now released all the videos that are part of our Playgroup Video project (funded by the Big Lottery Fund). Check out our YouTube channel and have a look at some of the amazing playgroups we have in Sheffield. Huge thanks to local film production company Humbledinger for working with us on this project


We have set up a BRAND NEW mailing list so that we get in touch with useful information every now and then.  Sign up here!



Did you know that Little Sheffield is only able to run some of the play sessions and events we do because we use Big Yellow Self Storage in Hillsborough? It wouldn’t be possible for us to keep all of our equipment at our volunteer’s homes as there is too much of it! And being in storage means we can easily access it whenever we need it. So we would like to give a great BIG thank you to the lovely folks at Big Yellow Hillsborough!

We’re very lucky to have the support of AT Social Media who have been fantastic at helping us on our social journey. Huge thanks to Adam and the team. #sheffieldissuper


About Us
We formed Little Sheffield in July, 2013 as we found that we were always the last to hear about events & groups for young children. So, we decided, enough was enough, lets round up all the information and have it in one place that everyone can access.

After all, spare time is a luxury when you’re a parent, so why scour the internet when all you need to do is visit just one website.

We have been amazed with how far Little Sheffield has come and in such a short time. We have so many plans in the pipeline for where we want to take it so we can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support. By liking us on facebook or visiting our website you are supporting us and we are so grateful for that support.

What Are We?
We are a not-for-profit social enterprise (what a mouthful!), which means we are all about getting the right information to the right people. We are not about making money. Currently Little Sheffield is done 100% voluntarily so please help to support us by telling everyone you know about who we are and what we do!
Thank you for your support.
