We've caught out this faker 18 times in the last month trying to make a fake profile for use on our Next Door website - he's actually using the address of OUR community hub ! We know your IP address (and so do BT who control ALL telephone lines in the UK)

On Tuesday, there is a possibility of ice with temperatures starting at around freezing or below freezing, he added. The north could see the mercury fall to -2-3C degrees with the south seeing temperatures just above freezing - around two degrees below average for this time of year, Mr Morgan said. 

"There will be a mixture of brighter spells and fairly frequent showers with snow falling in the south on the moors and places like the Brecon Beacons 
 he added.  "We could see some hail and sleet in the south on Tuesday too before milder, drier conditions return on Wednesday."

Its our regular Coffee Morning on Tuesday between 11am and 1pm - why not pop along one week and check it out? - and make some new friends too. 

We've now reached 3900 members of our Next Door site (just on this side of town) - an incredible achievement !

We really enjoyed last weekend and had a great day out on Saturday. We are already working on plans for a repeat in the very near future.

Last week was a really busy week for us - with lots of new developments now slotting into place. This year is really going to be fantastic - and that would be some amazing achievement following last year!

We'd like to say a very big THANK YOU to one party for their support for our group - with your support we will continue to grow and grow. More details of this will become clear very soon. 

Don't forget to join us at the Hub on Friday (between 2pm - 4 pm) for our Social Afternoon

Two new groups about to launch @ the Hub ...
Two new groups are launching at the Hub over the next few weeks One is the Camera Club, which will be meeting twice a week. Learn about photography techniques and technology. Everything from landscapes to studio photography, kids portraits, pets etc. Retired lecturer with 35 years plus experience. Get in touch to find out more - over 20 people have already expressed an interest on our Next Door website

The other group is Families In Crisis - aimed at supporting those who are dealing with family members who have issues such as alcohol / drug problems etc. It can often be a big help to listen to the experiences of others when deciding how to tackle these issues yourselves. Come along and support others who are going through similar issues to you 
Get in touch for details (in total confidence) - and see what insights you can gain.

Thousands of Derbyshire pensioners are missing out on hundreds of pounds a year by not claiming their 
Pension Credit, it’s been revealed.

It’s estimated that around 17,000 Derbyshire pensioners are entitled to, but not claiming, the pension top up, with the take-up rate for those aged over 75 at only 60%.

To help local residents find out if they qualify Derbyshire County Council has staff on hand to support them to claim their share of £41 million a year in unclaimed benefits. 
From June next year, only pensioners aged 75 or over and who are on Pension Credit will continue to get a 
free TV licence from the BBC, so it’s thought many more people will begin to claim. But that still leaves thousands of pensioners aged under 75 in Derbyshire that are now missing out on income they’re entitled to.

To check if you qualify for Pension Credit, call the Welfare Rights Team on 01629 531535 between 11am and 4pm any weekday except Wednesday - email welfare.benefits@derbyshire.gov.uk or click here to visit the website.

Holme Hall Unite would like to thank the People's Health Trust for their support in running the Community Hub - the project would never have materialised without them

Funded by People’s Health Trust using money raised through The Health Lottery in the East Midlands

Please Note - it is a condition of our funding that the facilities available (often free) at the Hub are used primarily by residents in this post code area, and although we welcome visitors (by appointment) we reserve the right to restrict entry to those people living in this post code area, and to people who ARE regular Hub users.

Ross Kemp visited us recently ...
A well known TV star - Ross Kemp - a famous face on British television for more than 25 years - visited us recently (Thursday 5th December). 

There was a very good turnout and as well as a short speech Ross also answered some questions, and then posed for some photographs.

There was considerable praise for the work of Holme Hall Unite both in the local community and also at the Hub - from Ross and also from our MP, Toby Perkins. He later visited the Market Place in the town centre.
