Christmas Trees

Posted: Mon, 11 Feb 2019 16:54 by Phillip Woodward

The Christmas trees which the Parish Council has provided for the last three years on the Village Green and Parkhouse Green were generally well received by the public, some of whom helped by placing their own decorations on them. More »

We did receive some criticism on Facebook from some people who felt that the solar lights did not come up to standard even though we did our best by putting several sets of lights on the trees.However, in order to get better lights we need to run a permanent electricity supply to the trees and the cost of this is not cheap.The Parish Clerk is presently looking into how much this is likely to cost us and if we think we can afford it during the next financial year then we will go for it.In the meantime the Council has decided that in order to reduce the long term costs of providing Christmas trees we should plant our own even if it might take them a year or so to grow to the required height.Two eight foot trees were due to be planted in early February but we were unable to proceed with this when we learned that a civil engineering company undertaking roadworks on Church Street had (without our permission) set up a base and dumping site on the Village Green (when we contacted them they claimed that they thought the land belonged to Derbyshire County Council which has given them a general permit to use bits of land such as this when they are working near to them).The Council made a compensation claim and the company has agreed that, in addition to reinstating the land to its previous condition (which it claims it always does), it will meet the cost of the two new trees.The roadworks are due to be completed by about the18th February and soon afterwards we hope to get the trees planted. » Less
