Work has been completed on installing a new link footpath between the Forest School St entrance to Craythorne fields and Tafflands. Alongside this a new drain has been installed, wet and muddy areas of the path repaired and the fence repaired/replaced.
The shoe box appeal is going well. Thank you for the excellent support so far.
We have enough things already for 20 shoe boxes, which is marvellous. Thank you to those who have contributed items and to those who have covered and filled shoe boxes.
If anyone has any spare shoeboxes, they would be appreciated.
The following items will also be warmly welcomed over the next 3 weeks, in addition to the things on the original list:
small musical instruments
If anyone wants to write a card or message, or send a message on the back of a photo of themself, this would be well received.
You can still do your own box if you wish.
The deadline for all items is 29th October, please.
This year’s boxes are going to the Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Bosnia and Romania.
If you have any questions or want something collecting, please contact Vivien on 07772447727.

Advanced notice of this year’s Brewers 10k fun run can be found in the following document along with temporary road closures.
Do you know who to contact if you spot an issue? We all have the responsibility to notify someone if we see something that needs repairing or could be dangerous but finding the right contact can be a challenge and make a huge difference to the speed of the issue being addressed.
As a general rule:
Contact the County Council at www.staffordshire.gov.uk to report any issues with highways (e.g. potholes), pavements or flood prevention.
East Staffordshire Borough Council has responsibility for planning matters, refuse collection and some recreational facilities such as Brook Hollows. They can be contacted on www.eaststaffsbc.gov.uk
The Parish Council maintains our play parks, open spaces, footpaths and more local amenities such as the planters on Burnside and benches around the village. They can be contacted on email@example.com
All Councils have many more responsibilities and a full list can be found at https://rollestonondovepc.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Responsibilities-Leaflet.pdf
Remember – in an emergency always contact the emergency services by dialling 999.
If you spot it – report it. Together we can make a difference
Congratulations to Graham Jacks, Rollestonian of The year 2022. Graham collected his award at last night’s Parish Council meeting from the Chair, Clare Stewart.
