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.
Newsletter March 2017
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).
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 🙂

LCRA Jan 2017 Update
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!
The latest update from the newly approved Derby Cathedral Schoolhas been put up on their website. No opening date has been given, as yet, as this is only agreed once a suitable site has been found. We’re hopeful it’ll be a good possible choice for Chester Green as they state it will be in the vicinity of the Cathedral 😉 Their update can be found at:
Linked below is the December (and November…oops!) newsletter with all you need to know about Chester Green’s upcoming events and news for the Christmas period!

We’re also excited to announce that the Chester Green Christmas Window Trail will be starting on 6th December (running to the 6th January). The map of the 31 windows taking part is below. Why not have an explore in December, and see if you can guess the theme of each window!

Finally, we have an appeal! The newsletter is written and distributed by volunteers. The printing costs are usually covered by the Residents Association, but we’re nearly out of money. We produce 1000 copies each month, and if each house gave just £1, this would fund the newsletter for approximately 4 years! See details in the newsletter if you’d like to help keep the newsletter going and make a donation. No matter how small, it all helps 🙂
Happy nearly December, Chester Greenies!
October’s newsletter is below (you’ll have received the paper copy at the beginning of the month!). Also, do come along the annual Halloween Disco on Saturday 29th October at the Community Centre from 7pm onwards. They’ll be games, food and a bar with a disco too! Always a great night, and prizes for the best Halloween outfits!
