JUNE EDITION...

Welcome to the June edition of the Village Voice.

THE campaign to get Melbourne’s three historic bollards replaced has proved successful. Last year’s disappearance of the bollards, which dated back to 1852, at either end of the Mill Twitchell caused much anger, and a petition calling for them to be reinstated was signed by more than 500 people. Derbyshire County Council has now agreed to install the bollards and the full story can be found in the June issue of the Village Voice.

We report the sad news of the passing of Robert Parker, long-time Village Voice columnist, farmer and parish councillor. Robert married his partner of nine years, Rachel, just eight days before he died in the Macmillan unit at Royal Derby Hospital. 

A local man who appeared on TV’s Britain’s Got Talent show tells us of his experience, and we also talk to a young Melbourne woman with a life-limiting disease who is to take part in a tough ultra marathon to raise funds for the charity that supports her.

There is a new Carnival Queen for Melbourne and she is pictured with her attendants ahead of next month’s popular event.

On the sporting front our June edition has news of silverware for several local teams. Melbourne Dynamo FC Reserves have two new trophies in their cabinet while the football club’s under-11s side have become Derbyshire Junior Champions. The Melbourne Mavericks enjoyed success at the season’s first softball cricket festival, while Kings Newton Bowls Club handed out their first two trophies of the new season.

Full details on all these plus much, much more are in another action-packed edition of your favourite local newspaper.
