Living Environment Working Group

Living Environment Working Group

The Living Environment Working Group's aim is to make the village centres more attractive for local people and visitors.  By developing projects such as seasonal themed planting schemes and working with local businesses, they want to promote Grassmoor and Hasland's existing offer and attract new interest from outside the area from both visitors and inward investment.

The group's first project to provide Christmas Trees to retailers in the villages has been very popular and well supported (see article below) and plans are already being made for summer flowering displays.

Christmas Trees Add Extra Sparkle                                 

 

The Living Environment Working Group teamed up with retailers in Grassmoor and Hasland to provide them with Christmas Trees to bring some extra sparkle to the seasonal decorations in the villages.  The decorated trees were on display over the winter to give a warm welcome to local people and visitors. 

Working Group member, Janet Ray, whose idea was behind the scheme said " We wanted to help retailers make the shop fronts in the villages look festive and welcoming to all."

 

 

Businesses that displayed trees are: HASLAND Andy's Fish Bar, Blade Barbers, De Niro's Takeaway, Don Noble Betting Office, Eyecatchers, Greenside Family Butchers, Hasland Chiropody, Hasland Discounts Ltd, Hasland Pet Supplies, Hasland Xchange, Hi Q, Just For You, Kate's Pantry, LEL Computing, Lite Bites, Lloyds Pharmacy, LouLou's Hairdressers, Mary Poppins Day Nursery, Masons Coffee House, Nhance, One Stop Stores Ltd, Perfection Weddings & Parties, Poise Hairdressing, Pro-Cutz, Rock Paper Scissors Hair Salon, Scooter Infinity, Sensory Heaven, Sweets & Treats, The Village Pizza House and CBC at Hasland Village Hall. GRASSMOOR Boot & Shoe Inn, Grassmoor Golf Club, Grassmoor Community Centre, Grassmoor Methodist Church, Grassmoor WMC, Peak Pharmacy,  RK's Bargain Box, Sportsman Inn, The Barber Shop, The Hair Boutique and Yummies.

Thanks to everyone involved, especially Janet Ray and David Maric for liaising with businesses and overseeing delivery of the trees, and to the businesses for decorating them and supporting the project.

TV and Digital Display Screens

TV and Digital Display Screens... in your neighbourhood now!

The landlords/ladies in The Boot & Shoe and The Sportsman in Grassmoor supported a pilot of the TV slideshows by showing them in their premises earlier in 2014. We are very grateful to Steve and Margaret, and Karen for this and for the feedback they gave which has helped us with planning the next sets of slides.

This has now been extended to the Grassmoor Working Mens Club.

The project has now been rolled out to more shops in Grassmoor including the Barbers and Yummies, and in Hasland in Greenside Butchers, Lou Lou's Hair Salon and LEL Computer Services, so look out for these and more appearing in your area soon. Many thanks to all the businesses that have been involved so far for your interest in this project. If any other businesses are interested in having a display screen, please get in touch.

Grassmoor and Hasland Useful Information

                                             

Grassmoor and Hasland Useful Information

The project to produce Useful Information Leaflets for Grassmoor and Hasland containing details of activities, clubs and services in the area has proved to be been very popular with residents.  Versions for both areas have now been printed and are available at various outlets in the villages and online.

The booklets will be refreshed on a regular basis to keep the information as up to date as possible. If you know of any other regular activites that take place in your area that that could be included in future, please let us know.

Working Groups

Working Groups

The responses to our consultations suggested to us that there are areas in which to focus the efforts of Big Local and these have resulted in the six working groups being identified:

  • People(Children & Young People; Working Age Families; Senior Citizens)
  • Place (Green & Open Spaces; Living Environment; Community Facilities)

At all the events we have held we asked for volunteers to sign up to groups to drive ideas forward. Meetings are held regularly in Grassmoor and Hasland, please see the Events section of this website for details of dates etc.

The role of the Working Groups is to:

  • Raise awareness and involvement
  • Try to understand the main issues, locally
  • Assess the challenges and barriers
  • Establish a number of long-term goals
  • Set down some short-term milestones
  • Develop an Action Plan
  • Collect the evidence and review progress

We want to involve as many local people as possible so if you are interested in joining one of the Working Groups, please get in touch.

Check out the date of the next working group meeting on the events page of this website.
