Households across the District are being reminded that their green bin collections are due to start again in early March 2018.

The green bin collections were suspended over the winter months as people are less active in the garden and there is little green waste being produced.

However, with spring on the horizon and people wanting to get back into their gardens the collections will start again.

Residents can place items such as leaves, hedge and plant clippings, twigs, branches and prunings, grass mowings, weeds and cut flowers. They can also place cooked and raw food waste (peeling, bones, fish, bread, pasta, fruit, vegetables, etc) into their green bins as part of our efforts to improve recycling and composting across the area.

Residents are also asked not to put any black or burgundy bin type wastes in their green bin to help avoid contamination.

The green waste is taken to a composting facility where it is then turned into valuable resource instead of sending it to landfill. Materials can be used for recycling or composting, with the rest of the waste being used to generate heat and power instead of it just going into the ground.

Depending upon which week your bin is collected they will start again on either 6 or 13 March 2018.

Residents should check the waste and recycling calendars that where distributed before Christmas for their exact start dates.

 

We are on the lookout for the stars and unsung heroes of the sporting world from the past year.

Nominations for our 2018 ‘Bolsover District Sports Awards’ are now open where the aim is to recognise and reward the top local sportsmen, women, volunteers and clubs from across Bolsover District.

Once again we have teamed up with the Bolsover District School Sport Partnership to include more emphasis on schools and young people. The categories are split into two sections – Community and Schools – and with 33 awards such as Sportsperson of the Year, School Sport Organising Crew, Young Sports Leader and Lifetime Achievement Awards up for grabs, there is sure to be an award for you.

This could be anyone from a top athlete, coach, club or team, a school volunteer or Sports Leader who deserves to be recognised for their achievements and commitments during the past year (September 2017- up to August 2018).

Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor John Ritchie said, “We have opened the nominations early to give people more time to put forward their choices and tell us why they feel a person or a team deserves to be recognised.

“These awards are our way of saying ‘well done’ and ‘congratulations’. You don’t have to be a world beater or have won every medal in your sport – as it is also about the enjoyment and contribution people make to sport in general that we want to acknowledge. So, if you know someone who you think deserves to be recognised, then get in touch with us and nominate them for an award.”

The deadline for nominations is 7 September 2018 and the awards ceremony will take place in October 2018.

Application forms will be sent to all sports clubs and schools in Bolsover District asking for nominations and they can also be picked up from the Council’s offices, by telephoning 01246 242366 or can be downloaded - Community Nomination Form - Schools and Young People Nomination Form - Eligibility criteria.

We have launched a new investment website to give companies, businesses and potential investors the information they need at the touch of a button.

The Invest Bolsover website is simple and easy to navigate with just four main headings – Bolsover District; Funding; Investment Opportunities; and Contacts.

The site includes an interactive mapping tool so potential investors or businesses can look at what sites are available for development, their suitable uses and latest planning information, with links of who to contact for more information.

More detail, new development sites and forthcoming events will be added to the site as they become available.

Cabinet Member for Efficiency and Business Development, Councillor Steve Fritchley said, “This website reflects our commitment to growing the local economy. Business and investors don’t want to trawl through mountains of paperwork and words to find a suitable site, they want to click a few buttons and have the information presented so they can then follow up any interest – and that’s what our website does.

“This is the first part of our marketing strategy to lift the area and build a good, sound solid economic base so more companies are attracted to the District, which in turn will help create more jobs for local people.”

 

As part of the continuing development of a new Local Plan for Bolsover District, the Council has produced a new draft Local Development Scheme setting out milestones for the final stages in the development of the new Local Plan.

This follows a meeting with and advice from the Planning Inspectorate and the draft new Local Development Scheme contains the following key dates.

“The new Local Development Scheme will provide clarity for local residents and communities on the last stages leading up to the adoption of the new Local Plan, including when consultation and participation to help shape the final version of the Local Plan will take place.

Holocaust Memorial Day is a national day of commemoration to remember those who suffered during The Holocaust.

The day has evolved to remember other genocides including, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

Each year Holocaust Memorial Day is observed on the 27 January. The date marks the liberation of the largest Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz.

Every year a different theme is chosen. This year’s theme is “Words can make a difference – both for good and evil”. The theme explores how language has been used in the past, and how it is used in the present day. The impact of words during the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, through propaganda used to incite, through slogans written in resistance, and through memoirs written to record and respond to what was going on.

A full copy of the theme can be found here

For more information, visit the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website here.
