Common Care - a voluntary organisation formed in 2006 to bring together various organisations in Stanley Common all of which share an interest in working together for a healthier, stronger local community.
The final meeting of Common Care will take place on Monday April 29th 8.00pm at The Eventide Village Hall, Hayeswood Road, Stanley Common. It is of course open to all residents and mailing list members as well as those on the steering committee.
Our Parish is a vibrant, thriving and friendly community located in south-east Derbyshire, around 8 miles north-east of Derby.
The Parish is a comparatively safe place to live having a very low crime rate and little social disorder. It is covered by vigilant Neighbourhood Watch Wardens and Schemes.
We are extremely proud of what the Parish has to offer residents and visitors and of its social history and industrial heritage.
The welcoming village signposts and parish logo represent this heritage in the ‘Headstocks’ for mining, ‘Tractor’ for farming and the ‘Windmill’, that still exists today at Cat and Fiddle Lane in the neighbouring Parish of Dale Abbey, for flour milling.
