Dronfield 2gether invites residents to play a part in making Dronfield a better place to live, work and play
Published On: Monday 23 February 2015

Dronfield residents are invited to find out more about their local community organisations and how they can play a part in making Dronfield a better place to live, work and play at two community events taking place at Dronfield Civic Centre on Monday 9 March, 1pm – 3pm and Thursday 12 March, 6.30pm – 8.15pm.

The events, run by Dronfield 2gether, are designed to showcase some of the community organisations residents of Dronfield can already get involved in, discuss some of the ideas which are currently taking shape and encourage more residents of Dronfield to come together and help make the town the best it can be. Dronfield 2gether is a community based project, supported by NHS North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group, with the aim to bring people together to create a healthier and happier town.

Residents are invited to attend either event where there will be presentations and stalls from Time Swap, Dementia Friends, First Taste (who run activities in care homes), The Peace Train (helping people to find inner peace), CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) and Derbyshire County Council’s Heart of Derbyshire campaign, which aims to encourage people to make healthier food choices.

Dronfield 2gether currently works with local school pupils, dementia friends, pensioners learning how to harness the power of the internet, time bank enthusiasts and those with a desire to promote random acts of kindness, but is looking to work with more organisations based in Dronfield and residents that are passionate about the town they live in.

Founding member of Dronfield 2gether, Dr Richard Bull, who is also a GP at Gosforth Valley and a member of NHS North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s Governing Body, said: “If you live in the Dronfield area and want to play a part in making Dronfield the best it can be, then these events are for you. As well as the opportunity to hear more about some of the wonderful community organisations we have, you will find out more about how you can contribute to making Dronfield a better place to live, work and play.”
