TREE-rific news! Christmas tree recycling service supporting local hospice

Residents across the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales are being invited to register their real Christmas tree for a New Year recycling service, to support local hospice care.

Blythe House Hospicecare and Helen’s Trust is hosting the annual ‘treecycle’ scheme on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th January 2024 – with registration now open.

Spotlight is monthly Zoom meeting organised by Derbyshire Dales CVS focusing on an organisation or group working in the Derbyshire Dales.

It is a chance to network and meet people from other organisations.  Each month one group gives a presentation on their project, after the presentation there is a chance to ask questions and share information.  The meeting usually lasts about 30 minutes and starts at 10am. Invites are sent a week in advance, no need to RSVP just hop on the Zoom call if you can make it

Please Complete the Survey about Voluntary Sector Support in Derbyshire

Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board and Derbyshire County Council have created a survey to understand the needs of the VCSE across Derbyshire and in particular the support on offer from organisations like Derbyshire Dales CVS.

After the initial questions to find out more about your group or organisation, you will be asked about the support provided by the current Derbyshire Infrastructure Organisations, the support that you access from them and the support services that you need from them.  The final questions will ask about your support needs, so that we have a clearer understanding of what the voluntary sector needs in order to grow and thrive.

Coming up next on Spotlight – Healthwatch Derbyshire on Wednesday 6th December

All sessions start at 10.00 am and are on Zoom.

Please let Sarah or Polly know if you would you like to join the list to receive the Zoom links. Email

Equally if you would like a practice run on Zoom please let us know and we would be happy to help.
