Below is this month’s Newsletter, which will be winging it’s way to you very soon. All the usual news and information, but there is also a new, potential option for the redevelopment of the Aida factory on City Road. We’ve now got permission to share the promo video, so do please have a look. Comments welcome!
The community centre will have a family Quiz night on Friday 5th April, which is always a good night. The last quiz was very popular, so do come along. Children welcome, and rounds for all ages!
Also, do save the date for Chester Green Event Teams 2nd annual fashion show (all proceeds going to this year’s Picnic on the Green event)! It was a great event last year, and will be on Friday 3rd May, 2019
I seem to be posting these in pairs, now! Below are the August and September Newsletters. You’ll have already received August’s, and September’s is on it’s way! Do have a look! Comments always welcome!
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!
The Chester Green Christmas Window Trail will officially start from 6th December. You may have already noticed some of the windows going up in local businesses and houses, and if you find the house with the XMas Pud in the window, and return your map, you’ll be entered into a prize draw!
We also featured on BBC Radio Derby last Friday. You can have a listen to our 5 minutes of fame below:
Also, below is the newsletter which will be delivered, along with a copy of the XMas trail map, any day now. There plenty going on this month including the candle lit carol service, at St Paul’s Church on the 15th December, 6.30pm (with live brass band!). All the important info is attached below. Hope you all have a great December!
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!

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!
However, there is more exciting news which you will have seen on our facebook page, and in the media in that the Cathedral is planning on opening a secondary school in DE1 (i.e. near the Cathedral). This is a VERY exciting proposition for us in Chester Green with, finally, someone acknowledging that there won’t be enough school places for our kids. Please spread the word, and register your interest at the site below. More details on the site below:
Better late than never. You will have had this through your door some time ago, but here’s the electronic version containing details on flood defences, community centre news, speed calming, church services and CPR training!
