April Edition...

BABY Lydia Heath made an unusual entrance into the world … being born in a pub car park.
Little Lydia could not wait for her Melbourne parents Ste and Naomi Heath to get to Royal Derby Hospital. Ste phoned medics when it became clear that his wife was in the middle of giving birth as they were driving over Swarkestone Bridge.
The couple parked up in the Crewe & Harper pub and Lydia was born in the front seat of the car.
This is a must-read story in the Village Voice’s April edition.

Charities are to benefit from several fund-raising activities covered in our latest issue.
* Melbourne firefighters held a car wash to support the charity that provides help to all serving and retired members of the fire service.
* Elaine Dunnicliffe presented a cheque for £16,000 to Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity. It brings the Melbourne woman’s total fund-raising for them to £80,000. What a terrific effort.
* Ten hardy souls braved minimal March night time temperatures when they got a rain-soaked night’s sleep outside The Staff of Life pub in Ticknall as part of the Great Tommy Sleep Out to help some of the UK’s most vulnerable Forces veterans.

You can also read why thousands of trees are being planted in our area – including a project for a huge community forest.

Plus there is the news of Melbourne district councillor Martin Fitzpatrick’s decision to resign his seat, prompting a by-election on May 2 – the same date of voting for the new Mayor of the East Midlands Combined County Authority.

All this and much, much more in your favourite local newspaper.
Don’t miss it.
