Easter First!

Posted by diana b on April 16, 2017 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

As the shops have been known to run out of Easter eggs, we buy in advance guessing at numbers ... and this year we over-bought!  So after this morning's Easter Event, the excess eggs were donated to the Children's Hospital.

I was very surprised at how quickly this message arrived in the Six Streets email inbox:

On behalf of all the staff and children at the Derbyshire Children Hospital I would like to say a huge THANK YOU for your very kind donation.

Cars broken into. Sunday 16 April 04:45

Posted by Michele on April 16, 2017 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (2)

On his way home from work at 04:45 this morning, my son, Arran, noticed the boots and passenger doors open on 3 cars on Wheeldon Avenue. He phoned the police, gave registration details and a description of the scene (boots open, contents disturbed, some items on the road, glove compartments open, contents in footwell, etc).

On police instruction, we closed car doors and boots. We left a note on the cars as it's highly likely the owner will get to the car before the police do!

I've been told by a dog walker using Sturgess Field that a man was hit with a ballbearing there this evening (Wed). He is OK but a second ball bearing then hit the railings near the Jonty Farmer exit. The police have been informed.

If you know anything - please ring 101

Arts Trail 2017

Posted by diana b on March 27, 2017 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (0)

There is going to be another Arts Trail - quite something seeing there is only a very small number of people organising it. To make it feasible, there is not going to be an entry charge for visitors. This means that there is no need for a trail guide. Given our very compact area, everyone will be able to wander around, spot the balloons/bunting marking venues and discover what is waiting inside.

Hosting a venue is fun - and pretty easy. It involves clearing a room (or two if you wa...
