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 🙂
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!

You’ll have had this delivered well before now, but in case you’ve lost it, here’s a copy of this month’s newsletter.
Additions to this are:
- The speed hump traffic calming scheme got approved, with a voting turn out of 38% (even with paid envelopes included with every form sent to residents!) and 72% for and 28% against.
- More archeological digs going on in Chester Green – for more details click this link.
As always, and slightly late, is the electronic version of this month’s newsletter giving details of everything going on in our wonderful Chester Green this December. See below:
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!
A local resident, one who is a particular nuisance (I’m understating here!) has been given a Criminal Behavior Order, as many will have seen via the leaflets the Police have issued around Chester Green. The resident in question has been convicted many times for assault, shop-lifting, being drunk and disorderly, threatening behaviour, carrying a knife, assaulting a police officer….the list goes on! Currently, Ronald is serving 16 weeks in prison.
Anyway if, when he’s released from prison again, you witness him doing anything abusive, drunk or disorderly etc. (see the list on the poster below – click for a bigger version!), then report it straight away to 101 or, if an emergency, 999. A CBO means anything on the list is an instantly arrestable offence.
Many thanks to Darley Policing Team, Derby Homes and local residents who have made this CBO happen!
