Rollestonian of the Year

The Chair of the Parish Council, Cllr James Toon, was delighted to be able to present Clive and Rosemary Baker with the Rollestonian of the Year for their work and leadership of the Station Project at the Annual Parish Council Meeting on 16 March. There were many worthy nominations this year and it was a very tough decision for the Councillors to make. The Parish Council thank those taking the time and effort to nominate and recognise the efforts of fellow Rollestonians.

Clive thanked all the volunteers and individuals for their hard work on the station project, and whilst the award will sit on their sideboard, he saw it as an award for them all.

There is an article in the February 2015 edition of Derbyshire Life and Countryside by Clive Baker 'More than just a nature trail' about the preservation of a piece of local history the Rolleston-on-Dove railway Station which also contains photographs. The village website has some details about this wonderful project here.

Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
