Denstone Royal British Legion

Denstone Remembers

The annual Remembrance Service will take place on Sunday 10th November 2019 at 9:00am at All Saints Church, Denstone.

The parade will then form at the church gate before walking round to the war memorial.

All are welcome for refreshments at the Village Hall following the Act of Remembrance.

Alton Towers Fireworks Sound Checks and Traffic Management

Just a quick note to let you all know about the Fireworks rehearsals that we’ll be undertaking in order to make sure the show runs as smoothly as possible. As Scarefest ends on Sunday 3rd November we will have a whole four days to strip out all the Halloween theming and install the fireworks show framework – doesn’t sound long but last year we were doing them both at the same time!

So we will be running lights, lasers and low level show audio from Monday 4th until Wednesday 6th from 9am until 9pm (not constantly though I hasten to add) and additional lights and lasers overnight. We’ll do full rehearsals on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings with everything bar the fireworks themselves and then final programming tweaks on Friday morning.

The show starts at 7pm and hopefully you’ve all booked your tickets and parking spaces for either the Friday or Sunday! If not, email atticket.request@alton-towers.com and let them know how many people are coming and how many spaces you need for vehicles. Booking is essential to guarantee entry and we will have a dedicated turnstile for you to use when you arrive so your passes can be manually scanned to confirm they are still valid.

Over the three nights we will be running the active traffic management system again which means Wootton Lane will become one way from around 7pm. Traffic will be taken from the grass car parks onto the lane and directed towards Ellastone where it will re-join the B5032. Remember there will also be no parking along Wotton Lane and wardens will be issuing tickets to vehicles parked in contravention of the restrictions.

As ever if you have any questions or concerns just drop me an email or give me a call. Can I also remind you that if you wish to be removed from this email list, please let me know.

Kind regards

Liz

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.
