Wildflower Area – Lea Recreation Ground

A wildflower area is planned for Lea Recreation Ground (near the upper picnic table). This will require an area of grass to be left unmown so it can thrive, look attractive and attract pollinators and other insects and wildlife. Look out for it in 2020/2021!

The Dethick, Lea and Holloway Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Amber Valley Borough Council and is now available on their website, together with the accompanying documents. Click here to access the documents. For more information click here to visit the Village Website.

Time Swap – Swap time not money!

Time Swap is an initiative that encourages local communities to help each other by sharing time and talents. As a Time Swap member you can earn ‘time’ by doing things in your community that you enjoy, or are good at, to help other people. You can then spend that time on getting help from other people with something that you find difficult or someone in your community could teach you a new skill.  Click here for more information
