Car damage

Posted by Niki Guthrie on February 12, 2017 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (4)

We've had our car wing mirror damaged (Sunday eve, White St) - the police came calling to let us know about it and to say they'd had some youths going down the street having a pop at several cars. We hadn't heard anything and hadn't been in long so hopefully it was an isolated incident and not too many other cars affected.

Be in a Video ..

Morning All.

Just to make people aware we had our car broken into/gone through last night (so this would be Wed night/ early Thurs morning - Diana) on Bromley Street.

This seems to be coming a regular occurrence at the minute around here.  Police have been informed.

Thank you to the lady on school run to Markeaton who alerted us to the fact our car doors were open and an old purse that our girls play with was on the pavement!!

There are quite a few further comments on teh Facebook page - if you have also had your car searched, even if nothing taken, please report to teh police as it will show them true extent of issue.

Too good to stay away from!

Hi Guys,

We are a family who moved out of the Six Streets a year ago and want to come back as we miss the very special community!

We have sold our current property and on the hunt for a four bed.

If you are considering selling we would love to hear from you.

Many thanks

Dave, Lou, Tom and Max.

What a Loving and Beautiful World - QUAD

Posted by Jenny Denton on January 23, 2017 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

In case anyone wasn’t aware of the stunning current exhibition at QUAD, I do urge you to go and see it.

It's one of the most successful exhibitions QUAD has staged and has had over 10,000 visitors - many returning several times.

One of my neighbours on Wheeldon Avenue took her 4 year old granddaughter to see it and they stayed for an hour!

It’s open every day from 11.00am until 5.00pm with two late night showings on Thursday 26 January and 2 February when it's open until 9.00pm



Parking Law

Check out the facts - DT passes on details from parent paper The Mirror such as other cars being legally entitled to park outside your house and also that a car has to be blocking public highway, not just your driveway, before police can take any action.
