Calaméo - November - Long Eaton & District Chronicle
Following two days of violent storms, the weather could not have been better, dry, sunny, and warm, turning to hot later. We boarded our coach mid- morning, and headed for the National Herb Centre, Warwickshire. What a delightful surprise, with so much to see, and our senses of touch and scent were alerted. All the popular herbs were on display, with some more unusual ones. There was much touching of the foliage, leaving the scent on our fingers, and sniffing mint, lemon, spicy, fruity, and many more aromas.
After wandering round the vast display area, filling baskets with our purchases, and taking a break for lunch and drinks, off we went again, this time just over the border to Banbury, Oxfordshire, to Ball Colgrave trial grounds.
These are people who grow for corporate firms, councils, etc. On arriving there it was our eyes that were on alert this time. Seeing their displays was a double WOW factor. Hundreds of plants, of every colour, hundreds of hanging baskets, 12 ft. We were able to take a flag and place it in our favourite plant, and the most popular will be available for the coming season. There was so much to look at and admire, it was difficult to make a choice. There were shady spots under trees and awnings, which we made great use of, craft stalls, ice cream, and lovely cakes, with a very welcome cup of tea.

The free event is at Long Eaton Town Hall on Thursday 19 September between 10am and 1pm and will be a welcoming, one-stop platform to help organisations identify potential funders they could approach for support and how to apply. New groups that have never applied for funding will also find this event invaluable.
Bikersanddriverstargetedduring LongEatonroadsafetyoperation Almost 20 drivers and 40 motorcyclists were pulled over by police as part of a road safety operation in Long Eaton. Derbyshire police officers carried out the day of checks on Wilsthorpe Road on Saturday, August 10 offering advice to drivers and issuing fines to those caught committing motoring offences. The operation was held to help clamp down on the fatal four factors involved in collisions — speeding, using a mobile phone while driving, not wearing a seatbelt and drink-driving.
During the day of checks there were 11 drivers who received fixed penalty notices for not wearing a seatbelt, seven motorists were also fined for using a mobile phone while driving and one car was seized as it was not insured.
Police also spoke to 40 motorcyclists about staying safe on the roads during the summer as part of the ongoing Operation Focus which aims to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries among bikers.
Sergeant Liam Caldecott, who helped organise and run the operation, said: An independent tree survey has confirmed the decision by Erewash Borough Council that the trees are dangerous and will become more so as time goes on. The natural lifespan of a poplar tree is around 60 — 80 years meaning that the trees due to be felled are way past their maturity.
As they age, they become hollow inside and brittle, so although they may look fine on the outside they are often in quite a dangerous state.
The 21 trees due to be felled this September are situated along the main pathway from the Leisure Centre car park, leading to the play area, they form a shelter belt, which means that removing the worst affected trees is not a viable proposition, as it would leave the remaining trees in a more vulnerable position.
It is proposed that native tree species will replace the poplars that are due to be removed. The poplars to the right of the pathway are some of the trees due for removal.
The members were given an informative and often moving talk about the formation and progress of the Trust since If you wish to contact the Canaan Trust just email Kevin at kevinc canaan-trust.

FOWP would like to thank all those who attended on Thursday for their valiant attempts at removing the Himalayan Balsam, whilst fending off nettles, brambles and mosquitos. Home-Start Erewash is one of more than local Home-Starts across the UK and last year supported children and 79 families in the Borough of Erewash.
Volunteer parents are trained, then matched with other parents struggling to cope. It gives them a better start in life. In the first, each family had Home-Start support. In the two control groups there was no volunteer support. The study showed parents in the Home-Start group had more positive changes in parental wellbeing, competence and behaviour: At the three year follow up, the Home-Start group showed more improvements than the control groups: And in future we will be linking it to other, ongoing research looking at simple and clear ways to measure the improvements experienced by families.
These latest findings show that less structured and more need-oriented approaches [such as volunteer support] seem to be able to bring about change too. After six months of technical training Ted was promoted to Sergeant and achieved his engineer brevet, he then moved to RAF Stradishall to join a crew in Bomber Command.

MarkCampbellto honourservicedeals Breaston car dealer Mark Campbell has reassured his clients that their service plans will be honoured. The company ceased trading after almost 20 years in business. The firm, which sold Korean SsangYong and Chinese Great Wall vehicles, was wound up voluntarily — with Christopher Stirland and Nathan Jones, from FRP Advisory in Leicester, appointed as joint liquidators — and ceased trading on July 18, resulting in ten members of staff, including founder and director Mark Campbell, being made redundant.
Mr Campbell moved into the site ininitially selling Proton and then Daihatsu cars. But he said problems started when the recession hit in Although we continued to sell parts this left us looking for another franchise, which turned out to be Great Wall and later SsangYong.
A number of customers had service plans — monthly payments that go towards the annual service of their cars. Mr Campbell said that other garages were keen to take on the service plans. Anyone who is concerned can call him on or FRP Advisory on A varied selection was heard from eight members, including "My Dad was a Chimney Sweep" written by Elaine Jacklin, which is due to be published in the "People s Friend".
She also read out her poem "Faith", which is to be included in an anthology of Derbyshire writers. The final reading came from John S. Barnes, who read extracts from his fictional triology "Menace". The story centres around a hateful priest, and explores the ripple effects of his crimes on the victims and his associates. The first book, "Deception", is available now on Amazon Kindle, the second, "Conspiracy", will be available towards the end of August, whilst the third, "Retribution", will appear in the New Year.
For further details contact the secretary, Janet Devereux, tel.

The winter flu jab is by far the best way to protect against the potentially devastating effects of the virus — which can cause serious complications, including pneumonia.
In some cases it can be fatal. Last year people died from flu, and a high proportion may have been avoided if people in at risk groups had been vaccinated. It could mean the difference between life and death. It is updated each year to ensure it protects against the three most commonest strains of the virus using the same manufacturing process that has been tried and tested since the s.
Health bosses also moved to reassure patients that GP practices would be well stocked with flu vaccine supplies — and extra quantities had been ordered to avoid surgeries running low on supplies. Serious reactions to the vaccine are extremely rare — although quite a few people will get a sore arm or feel a bit off colour for a day or two. It is scientifically impossible to get flu itself from the vaccine. More frontline health workers were also being encouraged to get their jab.
GP surgeries in Derbyshire and Derby City started offering their seasonal flu vaccine at the beginning of October. Patients wanting to book an appointment to have their jab should contact their GP. Help and information on the flu and its symptoms is freely available from NHS Direct on The vaccine is offered free of charge to: The ACSM is awarded to those who have served in an operational environment where a General Service Medal is awarded for a period of 1, days.

Since The Coffee Cup opened inseveral food safety interventions have been required with Hygiene Improvement Notices being served on a number of occasions and Mrs Handley receiving a Simple Caution as a warning instead of being prosecuted in for not complying with a Hygiene Improvement Notice. During a routine inspection in Januarythe food safety conditions found in the premises were such that Improvement Notices were again served but Mrs Handley failed to comply with the notices.
She was therefore prosecuted on this present occasion for failing to comply with three improvement notices which required her to: In sentencing, the magistrates said they were taking into account the protracted nature of the offences and Mrs Handley was reminded that those running a food business must abide by the stringent food safety and health and safety laws and that they have a position of great responsibility since when things go wrong there can be a big impact on the community which they serve.
The Erewash Borough Council museum was awarded the impressive honour during a ceremony at The Silk Mill in Derby — and with more than 60 museums in Derbyshire, it is a massive achievement for Erewash. The Awards, which are held annually, celebrate the work of museums and heritage sites throughout the county and are supported by Renaissance East Midlands and the Derbyshire Museums Forum.
Gaining the celebrated title is a major achievement for Erewash and means the Museum is now a flagship example of good practice for all museums to follow.
And it was a night of double success for Erewash Museum, which also took a second honour — winning the Best Event award for the successful Swing Back to the 40s celebration during the summer, when more than 1, people attended. It is a tribute to the hard work of everyone involved and recognises the commitment to providing a quality, forwardthinking programme of activities, events and exhibitions for people of all ages.
It has been an outstanding year for Erewash Museum and it is fabulous that is has been recognised as a first class visitor attraction — the best in Derbyshire! The celebration marks a year of success and achievement for the Museum, with record visitor figures and a Visit England Accreditation award for its high quality of visitor experience.

Notices were issued initially to stop the business making any further products and to stop the kebabs already made from being moved or used. After further investigations the Council was unable to confirm where the meat used to make the kebabs had originated or if it had been produced in properly approved premises.
Since there could be no guarantee that the meat had been produced, processed and distributed in line with food hygiene regulations, the Council could not be sure it was fit to eat. The Council team is currently continuing its investigations into the activities at the premises. Illegally produced kebabs and meat destroyed Save a life — give blood Visit blood.

His talk was entitled Derbyshire Place Names. Cullen was at the University of Nottingham doing research into place names. Now he is at Bristol University doing a study of surnames- perhaps the subject of a future talk. Cullen did an excellent powerpoint presentation in which he gave the derivations of 60 names towns, villages,rivers, hills and dales in Derbyshire.
Also Chesterfield, Alfreton and Bakewell. So Long Island, perhaps because it is bounded by the rivers Trent, Derwent and Erewash and when they were all in flood it would have been like being on an island. Stapleford or Stapelford as it was in means river crossing at the stapol- post or pillar Some of the place names derivations remain a mystery and Dr. Cullen mentioned a few.

Vice President David Howey gave the vote of thanks. The next meeting is on Thursday November 3rd. President Mick Atherton and Dr. Erewash Borough Council has entered into a partnership to provide a Warmstreets Insulation Scheme to give residents a great opportunity to save money on their fuel bills by insulating their homes at a fraction of the cost.
For residents aged over 70 or currently receiving qualifying benefits, home insulation could be free. In addition, the existing subsidies that currently make insulation so cheap are coming to an end in Decemberwith any future replacement incentive unlikely to offer the same value.
Insulating a home is a great way to save money on winter bills, with energy savings quickly paying for the cost of the work. We know that many people are worried about the prospect of high fuel bills this winter, especially in the current economic climate. The launch of Warmstreets shows our continued commitment to help people save money - while also helping the environment by reducing CO2 emissions. Residents can also book a survey by calling freephone or if calling from a mobile.

For organisers of reunions held last year to celebrate years of the secondary school have presented a trophy to the current establishment which will be competed for annually. The glass trophy will be awarded to a pupil or group of pupils from the school for voluntary service in the school or the wider community.
The trophy was purchased from money left over from centenary reunions held last October at the former school building on Tamworth Road dating back to and known to many as Long Eaton Grammar School. It is now a centre for small businesses. One of the organisers, John Simpson, who runs the legsreunited website, said the reunion committee felt it wanted to commemorate the school centenary while also linking with current and future pupils.
Pupils will have to be nominated by their peers, families or staff, though outside organisations can suggest nominations to the school and endorse them.
