Trowell Matters April 16

Chairman engagements article



Since the last newsletter I have attended several engagements; however I want to comment on three in particular.


The first was a seminar at County Hall called Civilian Life. Many organisations deal with members of the armed forces who leave to resume life in the Civilian world and help with that resettlement for themselves and their families.

I and my fellow councillors, Mrs Margaret Birkitt, Don Pringle together with County Councillor Ken Rigby found the seminar useful and noted links to theses organisation. If anyone wanting further information they can contact any of the following, SSAFA, British Legion, AgeUK or even myself. I am happy to search out further contact details .


Holocaust Memorial


I and fellow councillor Mrs Margaret Birkitt attended this moving ceremony at the Walled Garden, Bramcote Hills Park. It was a privilege to attend t


Civilian Lifehis brief ceremony in memory of those almost their lives during the Second World War. Lest we forget.



Fly the flag for the Commonwealth.



I attended this brief ceremony and was delighted to meet many young students from Roundhills School Beeston who attended to represent their native countries. What a credit to their school. It was a pleasure to attend and affirm our country’s commitment to the Commonwealth.


Don’t hold your nose! – Foul smell info

Don’t Hold Your Nose – Pick up the phone!!


The majority of residents in Trowell are aware that the village is regularly blighted with unpleasant smells emanating from industrial operations in nearby Erewash.  The industries involved are regulated by the Environment Agency but to enable them to take action the EA need to be kept advised of any incidents that occur as soon as possible.  That is where everyone in Trowell comes in – if you smell these noxious odours please pick up the phone & report it.  It is a FREE phone number 0800 807060 so it will cost you nothing but your time. Online? – you can also email the EA on .

It has been suggested that you use the following wording when reporting this issues – “I believe that the wind is in a south westerly direction and the smell is coming from an industrial estate in the Borough of Erewash.”

Many thanks in advance for your help with this problem.
