Information for local groups, societies, clubs, parish and town councils

Community Response Unit launched to help those in need

Our Community Response Unit is now ready to take requests for assistance from members of the community who don’t have friends or family able to help them.

Help is available for people across the county if they are:

  • Self-isolating because either themselves or a member of the household is at risk
  • Struggling to meet basic needs because of financial, social or health restrictions
  • Pregnant
  • Have underlying health conditions
  • Aged 70 or over.

Volunteers from over 200 different organisations will be able to help with shopping, fetching prescriptions or offering a befriending service.

Volunteers could be asked to help with food shopping and delivery, checking up on people who are isolated with a phone call or online help to prevent loneliness and check whether there is anything they need, or collecting and delivering prescriptions.

How to get help

Residents needing help should visit the Community Response Unit information on our website or phone 01629 535091. At this stage the phone line will only be available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 9am to 1pm.

How to give help

Organisations are still looking to recruit more volunteers. Anyone who wants to help and is aged 18 to 70 and fit and well should also visit the Community Response Unit information on our website to register their interest. Some organisations are looking for volunteers to offer a befriending telephone service, so anyone who wants to help but can’t leave their house could offer this kind of assistance.

Proposed wildflower area for Stanley Village

Proposed location of the wildflower area at the Stanley Village Recreation Ground

The Council has agreed to support a local ‘friends of’ group to establish a wildflower area at the Stanley Village Recreation Ground. The proposed layout and location is shown on the attached plan.

It is proposed that the grass be left uncut for the coming year to see what naturally establishes itself and more advice and guidance will be sought from the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, who have been working with us on the Fallow Field project at Stanley Common.

Anyone that wants to get involved with the project is encouraged to get in touch with Len Shorthouse who is leading on the creation of the volunteer group. See our facebook page to get in touch with him.

proposed improvement plan

Consultation – Fallow Field, Stanley Common

The Council is proposing works to enhance the wildflower meadow at Stanley Common affectionately known as the Fallow Field but officially known as the Smalley Common Recreation Ground.

This site has been designated as a local wildlife site and is one of only a small number of wildflower grassland meadows left in Derbyshire. As custodians of the Site the Parish Council has consulted residents over the years about what to do with the site and we are now putting forward our plans for your comments. We are also looking for volunteers to set up a ‘Friends of’ group which will help the Council to raise grant funding to support the enhancement project and help to maintain the site going forward.

Please review the documents attached below and let us know your thoughts. You can contact us through the Clerk’s email – parishclerk@stanleyandstanleycommon-pc.gov.uk
