Sorry these are a bit late, but the March and April LCRA newsletters are below! This month, there’s exciting news about a community orchard, the latest on the flood defences, puppets(!), the History Group talks, a fantastic Fashion Show (beginning of May!) and more!
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.
Remember, it’s the Picnic on the Green on Sunday 9th and it’s looking like it should be a great little event for our local community. They’ll be live music, games, face painting, a local theatre company, singers, and more
For the latest updates, do look at the Facebook page for the event.
Of course, there’s much more going on in Chester Green, with more details in this month’s newsletter below:
and here’s last month’s, too, for the record!
See you all on Sunday!
Below are the February Newsletter (which are being distributed shortly) and an electronic copy of the January update circulated earlier (we don’t normally do a January newsletter, but something important came up)! Lots of updates contained within…do have a look 🙂
Ahem…..seems I’ve dropped the ball, somewhat. Apologies! Below are the newsletters you will have all received already for July (following shortly – I don’t seem to have it!), August and September…..normal service will now resume!
This months highlights include Jack and Beanstalk at the community on 24th September from the FABULOUS Pocket Panto (if you’ve never seen them, you’re in for a treat. The funniest panto company I’ve ever seen!) Of course, there’s all the usual news and updates about everything Chester Green!
June’s newsletter is linked below which includes details of the Queen’s 90th celebration (on the Green or community centre depending on weather) Sunday 12th June.
A decision on the Queen’s celebration venue (green or community centre) will be made at around 6pm tonight – fingers crossed, but the weather is getting better (according to the BBC) than it first thought!
