Defibrilator/Life Support Training

I now have the names of eight people who would like to revise or learn the skills to save a life in an emergency. We have a quote from Derwent Training and I would like to get on with applying for a lottery grant. We could apply to train up to 40 people, however, so I want to make sure everyone who is interested gets a chance.  In three hours, you could learn enough to make the difference between life and death for somebody you care about. Please contact me on 01773 521557 or to register your interest. Christine 

Picnic on the Green – Open Meeting on 22 May at 7pm

What lovely Spring weather we have been enjoying lately and Summer is fast approaching. Planning for the community Picnic on the Green has been continuing behind the scenes. We want this to be a real village affair and a genuine opportunity to meet, have fun and start to shape our future. We have live music, a great raffle with some super prizes, activities for all the family with support from the Police, Fire Service and Red Cross. Sadly, this year sees the final Well Dressing in Brackenfield but this doesn't need to be the end of the road. If there is an appetite for doing things in the village this could be a new beginning. There is an open meeting on Monday 22 May at 7pm in the Church Hall. If you are curious or if you could donate a prize, suggest people we need to invite or offer any help on the day, please come and join us for a drink and a chat. 

6th April Neighbourhood Plan Meeting

Twelve people attended the "setting up group" meeting at the Plough on Thursday 6th April and it was really enjoyable to meet and chat over a relaxed drink. Joe Dugdale from Rural Action Derbyshire explained the next steps, which involve forming a steering group to lead the way through gathering evidence and consulting with residents and everyone who has an interest in the village. Nine people offered to take part in the steering group, however this remains open to anyone who feels they would like to contribute, in any way. All help gratefully accepted!  The next meeting will be at the Plough on Tuesday 2nd May at 6pm. Do come along, or contact us for more information.
