Sorry it’s a bit late. You should have all received this in paper form a week or so ago! Do note the upcoming quiz night (16th Feb) at the community centre and all the other usual updates and goings on!
Below is November’s newsletter, which you will have received, or will receive in printed form shortly! Lots of events and information enclosed including the Chester Green Events Team fund raising XMas quiz on 17th November at the community centre. Do come along!
Below is this month’s newsletter. Also, our very own Joan D’arcy will be hosting a history walk at 2.30pm on Sunday 3rd September. Joan is a fountain of knowledge on everything Chester Green. Do come along and support 🙂
We’ve had a slight delay in the printing this month, but the hard copy of the newsletter will be with you shortly!
In the meantime, here’s the PDF for your perusal! Lots of important info, as always including very sad news about our local Methodist Church 🙁 Also, we’ve been getting reports of parking issues around St. Mary’s Wharf. If you’re experiencing issues with illegally parked cars, do get in touch with the council’s enforcement dept.. Details can be found here.
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.
Councillor Lisa Eldret has arranged a meeting for this Monday evening 27/3/17 6.30 pm at Centurion Walk Community Room, Old Chester Rd.for residents to come along and discuss any concerns about the recent incident. Representatives from Severn Trent will be attending.
Residents in the affected roads have been notified about the meeting and it is open to any residents. Ward Councillors will be doing a walkabout between 5.45pm and 6.30pm before attending the meeting.
You’ll have received your printed copies by now, but below is the March newsletter from the residents association.
In more recent news, here’s the latest update from the Cathedral School, bringing the prospect of a local secondary school for Chester Green a little closer!
Also, do note the Annual General Meeting for St. Paul’s Pre-School on 27th March, 7.30pm, in St. Paul’s Church Hall. They’re always looking for new people to join the committee – why not come along and help support this excellent local pre-school (recently rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
The Chester Green Christmas Window Trail is now officially on. Not every window is quite ready yet, but it just means there’s still some surprises to come!
The map, and a few questions to answer along the way were given out with the newsletter this month, and can be found below. There are also some extra windows with the magic xmas tree sticker in….see if you can spot those too! We’ve already had one person submit their answers and a little feedback – just to clarify, some questions have more than one correct/possible answer, and we’re interested as to what theme you think each window is (perhaps loosely…) based on! Return your maps to the addresses shown and you may even get a little prize 🙂
We hope you enjoy the Xmas Window Trail, something new for our little community this year!
Well, what a great day was had by all! Below is a video and pics of the event. Feel free to add pics to the album if you have some and a big thanks to Lucia of St. Paul’s Road for the awesome video 🙂

A big thanks to all the organisers (Rach, Marie, Mark, Rhian, Chris, Tony, Julie and Rita) and everyone that mucked in on the (initially very rainy) day! A great advert for our wonderful community spirit 😀
Pray for good weather!
