Hello and welcome to our newsletter.
This month sees two important community events taking place.
On Saturday 18th June 2022 from midday until 5pm the Spirit of Chellaston summer event will be held on Swarkestone Road Park, adjacent to the Community Centre and Library. It is a great opportunity for residents of Chellaston and the surrounding neighbourhood to meet up, enjoy the planned entertainment, perhaps purchase something on offer from the many stalls and of course make use of the children’s funfair.
The Trustees and volunteers will be working in the Community Centre providing visitors with the opportunity to take a rest, use the washrooms and enjoy some welcome refreshments. We will have on offer hotdogs, cakes and hot and cold drinks with any profits going towards the building expansion project, the design of which you can also view in the main hall. If you can provide any help on the day or indeed bake a cake, please get in touch by calling 07895386433 or contacting one of the Trustees.
On Saturday 25th June at 11.00 am the Community Garden partnership team will be opening the High St Garden to the public. This project has taken 3 years to materialise and we look forward to it being a new Community space to enjoy and be looked after. We are asking residents wishing to attend to initially meet at the Community Centre to avoid congestion, say by 10.45, then we will proceed to the Garden with viewing available on both sides of High St for the official opening. Following this, refreshments will be served in the Centre with the opportunity to view photos of the garden construction. We still have a shortfall in funding for this community project and continue to look for donations to address this. If you can assist, a contribution can be made to chellaston.org.uk (PayPal or card) or via the donation boxes on the day in the Garden and Community Centre.
Finally, just a reminder that the Centre is available for hire for private family events, please visit our website to take a video tour and for more details go to www.chellastonca.org or give us a call on 07895386433. We have some weekend dates available over the coming months which may be suitable for a children’s birthday party, especially with the availability of the secure garden area.
