Breaston Neighbourhood Watch

I am in the process of forming a Breaston Neighbourhood watch, and hope I can interest you in being involved?

Please see attached form to fill in, please do not think by filling in the form that this commits you in any way, it only means I can keep your details on file. If you do not wish to be involved please ignore and delete.

We intend to hold short meeting in the near future to discuss the possibilities.

I am aware that Breaston have had a neighbourhood watch in the past, this one will be new and improved. I personally know very little about organizing the watch, I am on a learning curve.

Please note, this is not a Breaston Parish Council project or EBC, but it is best to operate with the approval of Parish.

Please feel free to call me 07590 453378. Please return completed form to me.

Yours sincerely,
Kevin Miller

Erewash Borough Councillor / Breaston Parish Councillor

New national campaign aims to get more people into adult social care

If you’ve ever thought about a job in adult care, but never acted on it, then now is the time.

A new national campaign – Every Day is Different - is launching this month and it aims to encourage more people to take up a career in care.

In adult social care, no two days are the same – you could be supporting people of all ages, with different abilities and needs. But whatever the role, you’ll be making a real difference to people’s lives.

The Every Day is Different campaign offers lots of information about the types of jobs available in care, the skills you’ll need and links to job opportunities in your local area.

You can find out more about the campaign at or by visiting the Facebook page at

You can also search for Derbyshire care jobs on the Joined Up Care Derbyshire website here

Stub out and Save

Derbyshire County Council is encouraging people to Stub Out and Save by quitting smoking with its free Live Life Better Derbyshire service.

There’s many reasons that may motivate people to quit for good. From saving money to breathing more easily, reducing the impacts of passive smoking to having more energy.

Smoking poses a serious health risk and can lead to cancer, strokes, heart attacks and other potentially fatal conditions but it’s also an expensive habit with people spending on average around £250 every month.

Why not stub out and see what you can save – whether that’s money, your health or your quality of life.

Live Life Better Derbyshire offers a free, 12 week, stop smoking support service.

It’s open to all Derbyshire residents and offers one-to-one and group support at venues across the county.

The service offers:

- Free NRT including patches, lozenges and gum
- Access to prescription only medications
- One to one support across the county
- Telephone support
- Advice, information and quit tips

The Parish Council has a duty to ensure the cemetery is a safe place for visitors and employees.

In September inspections of all headstones were carried out. Where possible plot owners were sent a letter detailing those memorials that have failed the safety tests. Plot owners have a duty to keep their plots clean, tidy and safe.

Notices have been displayed in the cemetery asking all plot owners to contact the council to ensure that contact details are up to date and to clarify if their family memorial failed the inspection.

Any plots which have not been attended to will now have to be made safe by the Parish Council.

Plot owners are advised that any memorials still deemed to be unsafe following the 31.07.19 will be included on a list to be laid flat.

If you have taken the necessary measures to ensure your headstone is safe has the Parish Council been informed? If not, please contact the Clerk on 01332 870119 or
