I am delighted to see that Broxtowe Borough Council has been given over £50,000 of emergency funding from the Government to help support communities in Broxtowe.

Darren's Update Wed 1st April 2020

Dear people of Broxtowe, 

Thank you to the people of Broxtowe who are mostly keeping to the restrictions because of COVID-19. Please stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives. 

Engaging with Hope Nottingham

I have engaged with Nigel Adams and Chris Dilks of Hope Nottingham, in Beeston. Hope is a support centre that works with many partner organisations such as neighbourhood foodbanks in the Nottingham area including in Stapleford, Chilwell and Beeston.

Shield Food and Supplies Ready to Go

The first Shield food and supplies box - ready for despatch to one of the 1.5m elderly and vulnerable people we are shielding.

Thank you to everyone working round the clock on this national endeavour. An amazing effort! Please make sure to stay home and save lives.

Please do not stockpile!

I went to Tesco, in Toton, over the weekend. Tesco have introduced an elderly and vulnerable hour from 9am to 10am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I am glad that Tesco have introduced this measure to help the elderly and vulnerable in Broxtowe
