Evening Post Community Chest Award -The Society has been successful in scooping a £1000 jackpot in the Evening Post/Barclays Bank Community Chest Awards. For our submission towards funding the restoration of the Old Church Tower and grounds, we polled an amazing 916 votes, coming second in the overall placing. There will be a special presentation award ceremony at Barclays Bank in West Bridgford on 17 July 2008 . Our thanks to everyone who voted and to those members who did so much to lobby and encourage support!
Greenbelt Development (Sustained Urban Development) - The news is very good! The proposal to develop land on the Chilwell/Bramcote greenbelt east of Bardill's has been REJECTED. It looks as though the area is ‘safe’ until 2027! Not so the land north of Stapleford up to the ridge running along Coventry Lane and then to Bilborough College where up to 5700 homes are proposed. We shall certainly give our support to any campaign of opposition.
