The next big event for your diaries is Staveley Carnival this Sunday 10th July, 1pm on the recreation ground.

There will be a SLACC display, a stall from our friends at SENS (Sustainability and Energy Network in Staveley), and the Staveley Apples for All project will have a stall pressing apple juice. Come along and see how tasty freshly pressed juice is – you can even have a go at using the press yourself!
