This month’s newsletter is winging its way to you all as we speak! There’s a history book co-written by local resident and history expert, Joan D’arcy (who also sadly passed away in 2020) charting the story of Sir Alfred Haslam, the Marine Refrigeration pioneer who was M.D. of the Haslam Foundry and Engineering Company in City Road, Derby. The book is available to purchase online at

There’s news on the up-coming events like The Chester Green Well Dressing which will be held at the Marcus Street Well on the afternoon of 11th June and for the first time in many years, the boards will be displayed on 12th/13th June at the Well in the Vicarage Garden on Old Chester Road.  We’re also hoping to hold the annual Picnic on the Green on 11th July. There’s also a family cycle ride to Elvaston Castle happening on 22nd May.

There’s more in the newsletter, of course, linked below. Do share!
