The Parish Council would like to make the following statement regarding this survey.

• The survey is not from Denstone Parish Council
• There is no legal requirement to complete the survey.
• Denstone Parish already has in place an officially adopted Neighbourhood Plan 2017 which incorporates YOUR housing needs and within this plan, sites are identified for development.

Mobile Post Office/Mobile Library Service

Post Van
The Mobile Post Office Van has (again) changed the time for attending the village. It will still be on the Village Hall car park every Monday but will now be there from 9.30am to 10.30am.

Please use this as much as possible, as the more it is used the more chance we have of having it more than one day a week. The Post Office Van offers the following services

• Letter/parcel postage
• Personal banking services like cash withdrawal
• Savings
• Insurance services

If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to contact Julie Sadler, the Parish Clerk, on 01335 324692 or email her at js.denstonepc@gmail.com

Also, there is a mobile library service that visits every third Wednesday 1.15 – 2.15pm.

They always have quite a good selection of books, including large print and audio books. You can also request specific books from the main Library to be brought onto the Mobile for the next visit.
It is linked to Uttoxeter Library, so books borrowed from the Mobile can be returned to the main Library and vice-versa.

Denstone Voluntary Car Scheme

EPSON MFP image
Supported by the Parish Council and Staffordshire County Council, this door-to-door scheme is being re-launched to help residents in the Parish who are without access to a private car and are also unable to use public transport due to infirmity, age or disability.

Passengers will pay a fare to the volunteer driver in accordance with set charges based on mileage and generally in line with public transport costs.

If you need to get to the Doctor, Dentist or Optician, or have a hospital appointment, we will try to help. For non-local visits to hospitals we will need 48 hours notice except in an emergency. The service will operate between 8.30am and 6.00pm on weekdays only.

The scheme depends on volunteer drivers and the more we have the greater the coverage and the wider the spread to volunteer time. Do you have a car and a few hours a month to help support our neighbours to feel less isolated?

For more details and to register your interest in either using the scheme or volunteering please contact the Coordinator:
Roy Smith,
2 Jasmine Cottages, Oak Road, Denstone.

Facebook Page Change

The “Denstone Neighbourhood Plan” Facebook Page has now been renamed the “Denstone Voice”. This page was used for discussion and public participation during the production of the Neighbourhood Plan, but since the completion of the NP in August 2016 it has been used for more general Denstone-related matters. Please feel free to use it to post anything to do with Denstone – e.g. events, questions, photos, videos, etc.
