Below is August’s newsletter which you all will have received some time ago! All the usual updates for everything Chester Green! Comments always welcome 😉
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!
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.
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)

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!
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).
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 🙂
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:
