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.

“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.

“After this consultation on the LDS, we will consider any comments and make any changes before adopting the new Local Development Scheme.”

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

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.”

Young people aged 16 to 24 year-old across Bolsover District are being given the chance to gain work experience and training to help them get a job.

The initiative is part of our successful Trainee/Apprenticeship which offers help in writing a CV, interview practice, work placements and achieving qualifications in functional skills, Maths and English.

Council Leader Councillor Ann Syrett said, “It’s not easy for young people to get onto the work ladder so we want to help kick-start young people’s careers by offering them an insight into a variety of industries.

“There is no doubting that the range of skills you can acquire as a trainee - from hands-on work experience to skills essential in any job - will stand you in good stead for the future.”

The five-month unpaid traineeship programme, supported by Babington Business College, helps young people to become accustomed to life in the workplace that could lead to an apprenticeship with us.

To be eligible for the programme, young people must live in Bolsover District, have an interest in working across a variety of roles within the public sector and currently not in education, employment or training. Financial support to assist young people with their expenses may be available.

Rhianne Knightley, who has worked her way through the programme and is currently a Business Admin Apprentice at the Council said, “Being an Apprentice has allowed me to learn new skills and earn money at the same time! Completing my NVQ has also been made easier as I have physically done the tasks that I have to write and talk about.

“So far I have achieved a Level 2 in Business Administration and have just started my Level 3. As well as achieving my qualifications I feel that I have also acquired a lot of experience that will help me to keep moving forward.”

Once completed, the programme allows students to apply for an apprenticeship position at either Bolsover District Council or North East Derbyshire District Council.

Experience can then be gained in a variety of different roles including grounds maintenance, customer service, business administration and leisure.
