Message from Gresley Male Voice Choir

Posted: Wed, 05 May 2021 12:54 by Dawn Roache

Are you ready?

Gresley Male Voice choir are on the way back!

When lockdown was first introduced back in 2020, South Derbyshire's Male Voice Choir took to our PC's, Tablets and Phones across South Derbyshire, East Staffordshire, and North West Leicestershire areas, to continue to rehearse via Zoom.

Rehearsing on a Wednesday and Friday nights led by our conductor Karl Harper, even going as far as learning new pieces. More »

In lockdown we have been able to keep all our members and followers up to date with a monthly newsletter and every Saturday morning our Secretary has emailed all of our Choir Members and followers keeping them informed not only about how everyone is doing, what they have been doing to keep active and well but includes in his mail some funny ditties and stories.

He likes to call this "His Funniest hour"!!

Once lockdown has eased, we are hoping to have a phased return to rehearsals, then eventually returning to full rehearsals by the start of autumn this year 2021. We are hoping to perform one or two live concerts before the end of the year. Then in 2022 do what we do best, sing in our usual 16+ full concerts. Helping many worthy causes to raise much needed funds and promote their Charities.

We would like to welcome you to become part of not only a fantastic choir but a huge family, a network of friends that fulfils 16 concerts a year around Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and East Staffordshire, including the four corners of the UK and everywhere in between, when the opportunity arises. Every second year we strive to perform abroad and to sing in some of the finest Churches, Halls and Cathedrals in Europe.

If you are interested in singing and would like to be part of a fantastic choir, why not register your interest by leaving your contact details.

More information can be obtained through our website at www.gresleychoir.com

IM Properties Mercia Park - construction and highways update (J11, M42)

Posted: Wed, 05 May 2021 09:21 by Dawn Roache

Construction on site is progressing well, with the first phase of earthworks and excavations completed and work now well underway on the buildings for the site's future occupiers DSV Group and Jaguar Land Rover.

The first of the buildings to be completed will be DSV Group's plot to the north east of the site, towards the A444, which is expected to be finished at the end of the summer. The first of the steelwork for Jaguar Land Rover's five new buildings, which are set to achieve carbon neutral construction, started at the end of April. More »

Highways update


Construction of a new site entrance and roundabout on the B5493, which provides the main access into the development, finished earlier this year.

Our appointed contractor, Winvic Construction, will separately soon be starting a programme of overnight improvement works to the gyratory system at Junction 11, M42. This will include the partial signalisation, localised widening, and enhancements for pedestrian and cycle access at the J11 roundabout.

To carry out this work safely, some full night-time closures of the slip roads will be required from 16 May 2021 for a period of up to four weeks. These will be taking place in two phases:

  • Eastern section, 16-28 May 2021 – closure of the A42/M42 on/off southbound slip roads; Tamworth Road junction; A444 south junction
  • Western section, 1-13 June 2021 – closure of the A42/M42 on/off northbound slip roads, B5493 junction; A444 north junction

All of these works will take place at night only (between the hours of 21:00 and 6:00) and temporary diversion routes will be clearly signposted. Please note some diversions on local roads may be in place from 20:00.

All of the roads affected will be re-opened every day at the end of each shift.

Details about the work and the necessary temporary diversion routes have been agreed with Highways England and local authority highways teams, and we are contacting local parishes and other relevant stakeholders ahead of work starting.

Full details about the highways work will be made available via our project website: https://merciaparkconstruction.co.uk/

We would like to apologise to our local communities for this inconvenience, but will be getting through the work as quickly and as safely as possible. » Less

A message from Dean and Smedley

To protect our staff we are only allowing 3 patients in at a time

Please wait outside until a slot becomes available

Thank you

Before you wait to enter;

  • Allow enough time for prescriptions to be completed; 3-4 days rather than the 2-3 days due to unprecedented volumes and delays from wholesalers. Unless prescriptions are urgent there will be a delay, so please ring to check they are here to avoid disappointment.
  • Shop stock is running very low, so please ring to see if we have the items you require. We are struggling with paracetamol tablets & liquid, hand washes & sanitisers, disinfectants & thermometers.
  • Our preference is that all payments are on card to reduce money contact, so please try your best.
  • We ask others in the community to help us to cope with delivery demands due to self-isolation with prescription collections. We will however need a consent form to be completed each time.
  • Finally, we are working as hard as we can during exceptional circumstances so would appreciate you treat our staff with the courtesy and patience you would expect yourselves.

Thank you for your understanding and support

Will all customers to try to use card payments please. This the safest way to reduce transfer of the virus, not just at the chemist but at all retailers. Thank You.
