New edition of magazine for residents out now

28 February 2018

The latest edition of our magazine for residents is due out now and includes the chance to win a luxury hotel break for two.

Packed with useful news, advice and information, the spring edition of Derbyshire Now is due to drop through letterboxes this week.

As well as a prize draw for a stay at the beautiful Makeney Hall Hotel, near Belper, the 16-page newsletter also features a full page of money saving vouchers for local Derbyshire attractions.

Here's a taste of what's in the latest edition:

  • What it's really like to be a foster carer − a Derbyshire mum talks about how she's giving children a loving home. 
  • How volunteers are making a big difference at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery. 
  • What we're doing to balance the books and ensure we are delivering high quality, value for money services. 
  • Focus on the Community Connectors helping a young Derbyshire woman achieve her ambitions. 
  • Spotlight on the work of a Derbyshire street lighting electrician.

Council Leader Barry Lewis said:

"We hope local residents find the latest edition of Derbyshire Now an interesting read and useful source of information.

"There's the remarkable story about Olivia Crossley-Holland whose mum Angela says our Community Connectors have transformed her daughter's life. There's also a moving interview with foster carer Chrissy Deighton who, along with her husband Chris, is opening up her home to Derbyshire children.

"I never cease to be amazed by the dedication shown by our community of foster carers."

Also inside the new edition is a guide to who your local county councillor is, as well as discount vouchers for attractions including Gulliver's Kingdom, Crich Tramway Village, Carsington Water and trips on the Cromford Canal.

Councillor Lewis added:

"There are lots of money-saving vouchers for great local attractions so, with the school holidays coming up, I'd encourage residents to have a read and keep the magazine for future use."

We produce Derbyshire Now three times a year at a cost of 11p per copy, including distribution. It is delivered to around 330,000 Derbyshire households.
