[River spotless after clean up]
We were delighted to support the Paddle Peak River Clean Team by collecting the rubbish after they went out on the Derwent again last week.
They removed mainly hay bale wrap still left over after Storm Babet through Hall Leys Park and down to Artist's Corner, leaving it spotless in time for Matlock's Easter visitors.

[£730,000 facelift for our Hall Leys Park]
Our award-winning Hall Leys Park is to get a £730,000 facelift - thanks mainly to central government funding - and there's an upcoming cash boost too for Wirksworth's Meadows Renewal Project.
A grant of £450,737 from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) means the Green Flag town centre park will get a new skatepark, new splashpads, refurbished pathways and a new link to the White Peak Loop trail. Match funding - which is required - of £279,263 will come from the District Council's capital resources.

[Community Safety Survey]
Derbyshire Dales is a safe place to live and has the lowest crime rate in all nine Districts within Derbyshire. The District Council and the Community Safety Partnership work hard to keep it that way.
We’re seeking your views on crime and disorder to help the partnership focus on the crime and anti-social behaviour that most affects our communities. We’ll use this information to target issues and direct resources to where they are most needed. You can fill in the survey [**online**]**.**
