After a few weeks of wild, wet and wintry weather we can at least provide some good cheer with the exciting news that North East Derbyshire District Council has approved our planning application. This is a huge step forward in our plan to purchase the buildings from the Parish.
Following the planning approval our next major challenge is to raise the remaining £50,000 to complete our deposit and secure a loan for the purchase. If you can help us in any way to reach this target please contact us straightaway.
We’re very excited to announce that Simeon Wood is going to be playing at the Civic Hall on Saturday 2nd May with all proceeds going to Life. Simeon is an internationally renowned flautist and multi-instrumentalist so please bring your friends and support what promises to be a very entertaining evening. Further information on Simeon can be found on his website and tickets (£8 adult, £5 child) can be purchased either online at www.ticketor.com/lifedronfield or through any of your contacts at Life. This has all been made possible by a very generous gift from one of our supporters.
Life is also fielding a team of runners in the Dronfield 10k on Sunday 15th March. They will be easy to identify in their blue Life T-Shirts so please support them if you can with sponsorship before the event and cheers and waves on the day. Here is a link to our Go Fund Me page for the run,
Our first Conversation Cafe successfully took place on the 22nd January. It was great to chat informally about the provision planned for Under 5s with a group of parents and they have provided some very valuable insights.
