The Parish Council is to erect 2 Christmas Trees to celebrate the festive season. One will be on the green opposite St Mary's Church and the second on Parkhouse Green in Lower Pilsley. This is the first time for many years that trees have been erected in the village, but it is hoped that it will be the start of an enduring tradition. More »
The aim is that this will be a community effort, so for the first year the Council will provide and erect the trees, together with festive lights, which will be solar powered. We are seeking help from the village in further decorating the trees and several community groups have been approached. However, we feel that individuals may want to put their own decorations on the trees. Perhaps they may want to place decorations in tribute or memory of departed friends or relatives or just put on baubles in the Christmas spirit.
In this regard, people will be free to place suitable and appropriate decorations on the trees once they are erected - hopefully towards the end of the coming week (commencing 28th November). Just a few things to be borne in mind:
- decorations need to be waterproof.
- nothing offensive or discriminatory in any way should be placed on or around the trees. We will remove items which fall into these categories.
- it is an attempt to engender community spirit and in this regard will be 'owned' by the community. It is, therefore, everyone's responsibility to look after it and ensure it is not deliberately damaged or otherwise abused.
We do hope residents enter into the spirit of things and it brings a bit of a smile to the village. » Less

Councillors will undertake an inspection of all children's play areas on Saturday morning (5th November) to review what new play equipment might be best sited at the recreation grounds at Parkhouse Green, Pilsley Miners Welfare, Sampson's Field and Morton Road. More »
This follows on from a consultation process which included the distribution of questionnaires to pupils at both primary schools in the village and open drop-in sessions at the village hall.
Over the course of the coming months councillors will decide which play equipment is preferred, what funding is available for the project and then carry out a competitive tendering process to get the best value for money. » Less
