As residents of Whitwell we're quite lucky in that we don't have a large number of serious problems to deal with, but the ones we do are non-the-less annoying and may develop in to bigger problems in the future.
Many of us are already involved with various groups and/or campaigns around the village, but there are a number of people who we are sure would like to be involved but just don't know what they can do to help.
Our aim and hope is to collate all the information together that you need to be able to get involved and help make Whitwell and even better place to live than it already is – most of the time you'll probably need to do no more than write a letter of support as many people have done for the Whitwell Against Alkane campaign. Some times it might be a little bit more.
We hope that you will join us in tackling the few problems that Whitwell does have, as it is residents that make a real difference.
As we see things right now there are currently four issues within the village that need attention and support:
- Whitwell Against Alkane
- It isn't over yet, the planning application has been withdrawn, but that doesn't mean that Alkane Energy Plc. have gone away and forgotten about this.
- Dog Fouling
- In some areas of the village this is a major problem. If you see any dog fouling, please report it to Bolsover District Council
- We still have problems with lorries in the village, and with companies who could use alternative routes not caring to do so.
- Anti-social Behaviour
- Of late this has got worse, if you see anyhing then please report it on the police non-emergency 101 number.
Over the coming weeks and months we'll be adding more information about the specific items and what you can do to help, we do hope that you'll come back and get involved.
