Gill Watts writes: The Bramcote Hills Park Community Cafe is now up and running with its fundraising. As part of this, a crowd funding page has been launched at http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/bramcote-hills-park-community-cafe and a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BramcoteParkCafe. Please promote these as widely as possible. Crowd funding works best by getting a cascade of support with people who know about the scheme passing details on to others and them then doing the same.
As a priority, Stapleford Town Team have been obtaining quotes from local businesses to repaint the street furniture, introduce new planters along the length of the high street, to create a sensory garden at the Roach and an activity park with sensory planters in the Walter Parker V.C. Memorial Square.
Businesses, Local Residents, Landlords, Local Councilors and any other Town Centre stakeholders are free to attend the open meeting, which will follow a drop in format, enabling people to come and go at their own leisure.

Julia Gibbs has asked that we publicise a fundraising event at St Leonard’s Community Centre, Wollaton, on Saturday 11th March, between 10 am and 12 noon. The Speech, Sign and Song Group are hosting a coffee morning and craft fair, just in time for Mother’s day and Easter!
The Speech Sign and Song Group is based in Beeston, and supports pre schoolers with communication difficulties. Using songs and instruments, supported by signs and symbols, the group encourages children who may have struggled in more mainstream groups to develop confidence and communication skills. The weekly pre schooler sessions are lead by 2 experienced music leaders, one of whom is a trained speech therapist.
Reading this morning’s Sunday Times an article with the above headline caught my eye. It starts:
With its bleak industrial landscape if crisscrossing rail tracks and long lines of parked freight trains, Toton Sidings is unlikely to win a ‘Beautiful Britain’ contest.
However, the rail depot in the East Midlands is set to be transformed into the site of Britain’s next city, Sir David Higgins, chairman of the HS2 rail project, said this weekend.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Higgins predicted that plans to make Toton a station on the £56bn rail network will spark a wave of commercial activity and housebuilding that could ultimately result in the creation of a city sandwiched between Nottingham and Derby…………..
Extracted from the Sunday Times.
The article goes on to say the site is one of the best connected in England and that local authority leaders are considering forming a development body similar to the London Development Corporation that kick started Canary Wharf.
It goes without saying that there are huge implications in this!

The Annual General Meeting of Bramcote Hills Community Association will be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday 15 February 2017 at Grangewood Methodist Church.
All members of the Association are encouraged to attend.
The guest speaker is Paul Nathanail ‘Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum Update’.
Our officers from the Sandiacre Safer Neighbourhood Team will be handing out free crime prevention goodies to people from the village.
The team is holding a crime prevention event this Saturday 1pm-4pm (February 11) in the car park of the Sandiacre library, in Doncaster Avenue, and officers are inviting people from the village to attend. PCSO Andy Freeman says the Derbyshire colleges are holding this event and have kindly opened it up to all residents in and around Stapleford.
Anna Says: “Sir Peter Mansfield was an outstanding physicist. Sir Peter received the Nobel prize for his contribution to science notably for his pioneering work on developing the MRI scanner. This remarkable machine is now in almost every hospital in the world. MRI scanners have contributed to the detection and treatment of disease and injuries. Sir Peter was a delightful man and I met him many times at Conservative party events in Broxtowe. My thoughts are with Jean and their family.”
