A shorter edition this time, which is again focused on providing some links you may find useful during these strange times. Feedback from last week was again positive, hence sticking with the format. This week’s layout is re-organised slightly so that new links are published first with standard links further down (although I’ve newly published a link to NCT 36 service timetable under standard links in section 2).
1. Some new on-line links….
- Local walks. A Digest reader got in touch during the week suggesting a couple of walks that may be of interest. These walks are pretty much on our doorstep and tick both the ‘local’ and ‘quiet’ boxes – which help to minimise driving as well as maintaining social distance. This first walk is a pdf document of the Erewash Valley Trail. This 2nd link takes you a Sustrans site of the Nutbrook Trail which starts off on the Erewash Canal before branching off to Heanor via Shipley Park. The Nutbrook Trail may perhaps be more suited to cyclists but walkers will enjoy it as well. Many thanks, Stephen D for sending in these links. If anyone else has suggestions for local walks, please send them over and I’ll publish next week.
- Government advice to what you can/can’t do with regard to leaving the house
- Helpful Links in Difficult Times. A Notts County Council initiative has produced and maintains a spreadsheet containing lots of useful links in google docs. Here’s a link to the spreadsheet Click on the tabs at the top of the spreadsheet to see more links.

3. And finally…
- Forum news: we’re still working on the Consultation Statement – it is now 75% completed so not much longer to go. I was going to say we’re working on the Statement with ‘quiet intensity’ but I appreciate that, outside the Steering Group, it may just appear that we are being ‘intensely quiet’! Never mind – by now I’m sure you know that I tend to be over optimistic regarding our capacity to produce documents on time. I deliberately set challenging timeframes, so we have clear deadlines to work to. But I know that means they are sometimes (usually?) missed but, still, I’m a firm believer that targets help provide focus.
That’s all folks! See you next time
