LCRA November Newsletter

The November newsletter with some great news.  We have managed to get St. Paul’s C of E Church added to the list of churches recognised by Walter Evans C of E Primary school in Darley Abbey giving children in the area a potentially higher priority than others outside the catchment area.  Walter Evans’ sibling policy also means that once you’ve got one child in, the rest are guaranteed a place (this does not happen at any other school in Derby, and has caused families in the local area much pain and frustration in the past).

Also, on Sunday evening at 7pm at St. Paul’s Church is a Chester Green Remembers 1914-18 evening – A Tribute to the men of Chester Green who gave their lives in the Great War.  It’s free and features music, poetry and drama based around the Great War and promises to be a busy and great event.  A collection will be held in aid of Combat Stress mental health charity and the Open Road will be there, who have just released a single in aid of the Poppy Appeal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtq5fEIlLcQ).

Lots of other info in this weeks packed newsletter, so take a look 🙂
