Wheelchair Access

Please could all Villagers, Their Families and Visitors ensure that cars, bikes etc. are not parked on the road or pavement adjacent to the Village Hall, particularly the dropped curb area which allows wheelchair and reduced mobility users to use the level access to the Hall.

We have recently had complaints from a wheelchair user who was unable to attend an event due to a member of the public parking across the dropped curb.

This may just be unthinking behaviour, but it seriously affects some residents ability to enjoy the facilities of the village so please use the Village Hall Car Park across the Road. Persistent offenders may be named and shamed in the future.

Woodland Creation Grant Confirmed

Interesting Information for all land owners

A £13 million fund to increase England’s woodland has been confirmed by the Forestry Minister.
The fund, part of the Countryside Stewardship scheme, will help landowners to plant more trees to protect wildlife, boost the timber sector and reduce flood risk. It will help plant more than 3 million trees, creating 1,900 hectares of new woodland and contributing to the government’s ambition to plant 11 million trees, with a further one million in towns and cities.
Farmers, foresters and land managers across the UK will be able to apply for up to £6,800 per hectare to plant, weed and protect more trees when application forms for the next round of the government’s Woodland Creation grant are made available in September.
A range of grants are available to support the creation of new woodland and sustainable woodland management, with Forestry Commission online advice available on the application process.
Further information will be available from
Derbyshire Association of Local Councils:
The Old Loom Shop, Building 23, Cromford Mill, Mill Road, Cromford, Matlock, Derbyshire DE4 3RQ

Tel: 01629 826655


The Parish Council will also have further information once the application forms become available in September
