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!
Our City Our River (OCOR) are holding a public drop-in event on Wednesday 19th October from 3.00pm to 6.30pm at the Chester Green Community Centre, just off Old Chester Road, Derby, DE1 3SA. There will be updates on the construction work to build new flood defences and the next stage of work starting. There will also be team members on hand to answer questions about the project. Please contact Cassandra Carruthers on 01332 643488 or email for further information.
Please share, as notice for this is very late, it would seem!
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!
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!
