Playground Update

Work is progressing well with the plans to install a new playground on the recreation ground, to be funded in the main via a grant application. We are now at the design stage and using the drawings/ideas put forward by local children we intend to have a final plan to recommend to the Parish Council before the end of July. Local fund raising needs to raise around 10% of the overall cost and this is making good progress via fundraising initiatives, with more things planned in the near future to help meet the target of raising a minimum of £6500. We have also received a number of donations from village residents which have been greatly appreciated , and to make donating easier a just giving page has now been set up at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/cutthorpe-village- playground. It is hoped that a final decision on whether the grant application has been successful will be known before the end of the year, for further information please contact ken.lawrie@btinternet.com.

Village Hall Update – June 2022

Some of the more observant residents will have noticed we now have a fenced off area for our outside space project. Further work is now required to gain access to the space and also to do some ground clearance along the exiting boundary. The Damson trees are a popular source of fruit with locals and we will endeavour to keep these if possible. We are also looking to develop a dedicated website to help promote the village hall, hopefully we will have something later this year As always, if anyone has any general queries regarding the Institute, please feel free to contact me at mike.robotham@hotmail.co.uk., or on 07802243265. For bookings, please contact Jane Johnstone at jane.johnstone@hotmail.co.uk

Men’s Shed

The Cutthorpe Men’s Shed, based on the nationwide organisation, is now up and running. Several meetings have taken place, originally socially distanced outdoors and now online. We have made contact with the community involvement officer of Derbyshire county council who is able to assist with guidance on obtaining grants, and donations of equipment etc. They have assisted 2 groups recently to start a shed club. If you are interested in getting involved or finding out more about us, contact Graham Harrison 07920 040129

Cutthorpe Institute Update

The Institute has remained closed throughout the Covid- 19 pandemic but with the vaccine programme taking effect we are hopeful that a safe re-opening can take place soon and bookings and social gatherings resume. The majority of groups who used the hall for various activities have expressed an interest in returning as soon as practical which is encouraging after such a prolonged absence. The working committee which oversees bookings are being guided by the government relaxation programme and the next key date is the 21st June, after which we will hopefully have a clearer picture on what we can do to get the hall back into use. Barbara Stringer has stepped back from her direct involvement in the institute after many years of dedicated service, on behalf of the institute trustees and members of the working committee that she chaired, I would like to offer her our warmest thanks and gratitude. Going forward, if anyone has any general queries regarding the Institute, please feel free to contact me at mike.robotham@hotmail.co.uk., or on 07802243265. For bookings, please contact Jane Johnstone at jane.johnstone@hotmail.co.uk

Dunston Grange building development

A meeting was recently held by the Dunston Grange Residents Action Group with Councillor Simmons to express concerns about the proposed building of another 500 houses on Dunston Road. A wide range of issues and questions were raised including the fact that initial proposals include a primary school and shops but no mention of doctors surgeries, dentists and other crucial infrastructure - It was confirmed that there are no plans for provision of these additional services. Also the impact of the increase in traffic was raised, particularly as Cutthorpe will be on a direct route to the Peak District and beyond and there is already a large development underway. The full minutes of the meeting with issues raised are available here or can be forwarded to you - contact Phil Baines, email dgrag21@gmail.com, to express your concerns, the more vocal we are the more likely the council will listen to people’s views.
