Elton Community Barbeque and Party 2019

Elton Jubilee Field was founded in 1977 when the village came together to fundraise and purchase the field for the community and wider public to have a safe place for sports, play and recreational activities. The field is a registered charity (no. 507662) and managed by a small committee of volunteer trustees.

Over the past decade the field has undergone a much needed improvement project which aims to replace the dilapidated Pavilion with a state of the art club house and install a new multi use games area and new children’s play area. A massive amount of fundraising has been undertaken over the years from within the village to build the clubhouse and make it a reality. The focus is now turning to purchasing a new children’s play area to replace the old one which has been in place for over 20 years.

Images below show plans and a visual image of the proposals. The amount needed to get the new equipment is £48,000 plus VAT. This is a tall order but something we are willing to work tirelessly to raise on behalf of our committee, community and young children.

As well as fundraising through a Just Giving page online, we will be applying for larger grants from other sources. In the meantime, however, this page is an opportunity for you to show your support, contribute what you can and help show community spirit in making this happen. Please help however you can – financially or by spreading the word.

Thank you in advance for any support you give.

The church in Elton will, from this month, be reducing the number of services we offer regularly to two a month. In the second Sunday of the month there will be a 9:30am Eucharist and on the 4th Sunday of the month there will be Evensong at 6pm.

There will still be an additional service this Sunday (2nd June) at 9:30am as a one off as well.

We’re always happy to discuss new opportunities for the use of the church, so if you’d like to discuss anything please feel free to contact Rev’d Carla on 07767087530.

With every blessing

Clarification on Garden Waste Charges

A number of people have recently contacted me to ask when charges for the collection of garden waste will come into effect and how much it will be. The charges and when they will be brought in have not yet been agreed. At this stage they are only proposals which have been set out in the new waste contract which will begin in August 2020 – when the current contract with Serco will come to an end. If charges are brought in for garden waste, they might not even start until 2021. The new contract is currently being reviewed by potential contactors and hasn’t yet gone through a formal tendering process. So, things could still change in the months ahead and I will continue to keep you updated as the new contract begin to take shape. For now, garden waste collections remain free of charge for at least another year.

Food caddy Liners

Free food caddy liners are currently being delivered to households across Derbyshire Dales. Residents who have subscribed to the District Council’s compostable sack scheme for garden waste will also receive a free roll of 42 compostable sacks. Properties that currently use black sacks for household waste can subscribe to the compostable sack scheme for garden waste online. Any household that has not received their caddy liners or compostable sacks by the end of May should contact the District Council no later than the end of June on 01629 761100.

As always, please get in touch with me if you have any issues with waste collection services or the delivery of your caddy liners and compostable sacks.
