Planning applications

We have added a new page which will hold details of all new planning applications. You can quickly navigate to the page through the header menu or by clicking the link below

Planning applications page

The intent of this page is to group together all planning applications that are registered within The Park and applications of interest in a close proximity to The Park. If you wish to read and comment on any of the proposals, links are provided for you to be able to do this on the Nottingham City Council planning portal.

Ukraine Fundraising Update

An update on our Ukraine crisis tea and cake event on Saturday. 

The total amount raised was £5096. Of this, the Children’s cafe raised £240 on Saturday morning and the raffle raised over £300. We have cheques which are being paid directly to the Red Cross & cash raised is being put with electronic payments and then sent to the Red Cross.

In a while we should receive acknowledgement of our donations. We had hoped to raise around a thousand pounds. We were donated many, many more cakes than we were promised and the cash collection surpassed our wildest estimates. Huge thanks are due to the team who cooked, baked, made tea and (wonderful proper) coffee, set up, washed up and cleaned up. 

Thank you all very much. 

Thank you also to those who gave envelopes of cash, cheques, and electronic funds. What amazing generosity and what a terrific community. It is hard to imagine how dreadful it is to lose so much in such dreadful circumstances. We have seen it before in Ethiopia, Syria, and other places. Let’s hope our contribution will make a small difference to the people of Ukraine.  

Lastly, by requesting enveloped donations we offered anonymity to those who made donations. Despite donations being largely in cash it appears we are able to forward names and addresses of those who pay UK Income Tax for the Red Cross to claim Gift Aid.

If you pay little or no Income Tax this is not relevant to you. However, if any of you feel you can do this, you can download a form here to apply gift aid to your donation.

Ann is happy to receive the form electronically (ann.priest@aol.co.uk) or in hard copy to the Park Tennis Club. 

Thank you all so much, Ann, Beth, Pam, Barrie, Maggie, Sharon, Jean and our team.

If you missed the event but would still like to make a donation then you can find a postal form you can download here. Alternatively you can make a donation direct to the Red Cross online here.

Social Events for 2022

We would also like to welcome you to a new year of social activity, until we hear otherwise. Our intention is to give you as much information as we can now and keep you updated throughout the year as it all changes, but at least it gives your diaries a fighting chance.

Our regular social events for 2022:

Second Sunday Socials on the Circus

An opportunity to meet your neighbours over a coffee or more (currently Doh Pizza and Memsaab’s curries). Starting up again in March – weather permitting – on the 13th. All at the usual time 12 noon until 3pm

History talks 

Usually with a Nottingham or Park theme, these entertaining talks offer an insight in to our city and some of its most interesting people. Dates for the Spring and Autumn talks are:

Thursday 3rd March – Puzzles Past & Present

Thursday 7th April – Sinking Venice

Thursday 5th May – Bargain Hunt: behind the scenes and in front of the TV cameras

Coronavirus Support

You can’t have too much support apparently. We will no doubt have to update the information on the flyers distributed to all Park residents on 22nd March as events overtake us, and we will be doing that here and by email to all those NPRA members for whom we hold email addresses.

***FIRST UPDATE*** Unbelievably we’ve used an out of date phone number on the flyers for the Park Estate office. The number for those not on email to use is 0115 947 4273. If you do know of anyone who is unlikely to be using email, could you please let them know of this correction. Thankyou.

Farmers’ Markets

This was meant to be when we released details of this year’s markets but it’s now the usual cancellation news that we have grown to expect.

The plan this year was to hold four big event markets to mark the four seasons:

Spring Market: Sunday 5th April

Summer Solstice Market: Sunday 21st June (nearly)

Autumn Harvest Market: Sunday 13th September

Christmas Market: Sunday 13th December

How many of these actually take place we shall have to wait and see. Once we’ve all learnt responsible social distancing we’ll be allowed back out to play, so roll on the ‘new normal’.

Spring Talks 2020

*** All Talks cancelled until further notice ***

(We will be coming up with a cunning plan or two in the near future to keep you entertained)

The new schedule of Spring Talks is now available. Please note them in your diaries and book your place early as they are always well attended!

All talks are held in the Tennis Pavilion, Tattershall Drive, beginning 7.30pm, doors and bar open at 7.00pm.
