Attached below is this month’s newsletter (which is coming to you in printed form as we speak!) Lots of up and coming events this month including the excellent Halloween Disco at the Community Centre (always a great event!)
Chester Green Events Team are also running the Chester Green XMas Window Trail again this year (after last year’s very successful pilot!) We had BBC Radio Derby feature us live on a morning slot and it was a great little advert for our area 🙂 If you’d like to be involved this year (you’ll be included on a little map), then do get in touch.
On a more serious note, the newsletter gives updates on the Aida Bliss factory and how we’re continuing to try and convince the owners to make the building safe (as we have been doing for many months, now) and also news that the incinerator on Alfreton Road has been recommended for approval by the council planning officer, even though there are over 400 objections (although the actual planning meeting was put back for some reason). The council planning seem to be more concerned with local residents using correct materials when replacing doors and windows, and turning down extensions, than they are with dangerous buildings (allowing the Aida Bliss building to remain in its current state) and potentially air polluting waste incinerators. Is our conservation area status and council planning really fit for purpose? If you’ve had issues with the council planners, I’d like to hear from you.

LCRA May News Letter 2017
We missed an announcement from our newsletter, so here it is, from the Mansfield Road based Derby Family Chiropractic clinic who are having an open day to celebrate 10 years of business.
On Thursday 18th May from 2pm – 5pm the entire team will be around offering free advice, free scans and we’ll have some refreshments available. We’re hoping everyone will come along and say hello even if they’re not needing any advice from us, because it is not only a celebration of us being a business for 10 years, but being a part of the Chester Green community for 2 years as well.
The printed copy of the newsletter will be making its way to you from this evening, but in the meantime, here’s the electronic version. April is looking to be a busy and exciting month for Chester Greenies!
- We have a quiz night (7th April)
- Mixed Crafts, Gentle Exercise and Zumba classes at the community centre
- Easter Table Top Sale (8th April)
- Mirrors of Mary (performance – 12th April)
- Mindfulness Course (starting on 18th April)
- Our City, Our River Flood Defence Drop in Session (19th April)
- 1940s Variety Show (from Jeremy and Becky from Pocket Panto – 22nd April)
And after the success of the Queen’s Birthday celebrations last year, a ‘Picnic on the Green‘ will be held on Sunday 9th July (save the date!)
A big thank you to Alternative Tiles on Mansfield Road for sponsoring this issue, too.
All the details can be found in this month’s newsletter!
