CPRA and Climate Change

After our last CPRA coffee morning looking at the Climate Crisis, and the media coverage in the run up to COP26, have you changed something at home or in the garden that you would like to share with CPRA?

We could start up a webpage and list our local CPRA projects.  We would do it all anonymously, – no name or address, or identifying details, or suppliers.  

So just the broad idea, timescales, and perhaps a photo at this stage.  If you have done something you think has worked well for you and the climate, please reply and let us know.

Curzon Park Sunflower Competition 2020

The Summer of 2020 will be remembered for many reasons however residents certainly made sure it was a colourful one.

Curzon Park was in full bloom as we held our first (inaugural) Sunflower Competition. We had sunflowers of all shapes and sizes, with some towering over 4m!

These wonderful entries certainly brought some additional brightness to the area.

After a close competition our winners are:
Winner: Anna Burman
Runners up: John Jones-Pritchard and Elspeth, Eloise & Theo Hesbert

Thank you to everyone who entered and we look forward to an even bigger and brighter Sunflower Competition next year!

Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Dear Curzon Park Residents

I hope this finds you well. As I am sure you are all aware, the incidence of Corona Virus (COVID-19) continues rise globally, nationally and locally with cases now reported in Chester.

Below I have listed links to government and NHS websites detailing important information for what you can do to best look after yourself and family.

NHS Guidance: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

BBC – Easy Steps to stay safe: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51711227

BBC – Effective hand washing video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/health-51637561/coronavirus-watch-how-germs-spread

GOV UK (including information on self isolation, travel and business owners): https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

GOV UK map of cases: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-track-coronavirus-cases

Word Health Organisation – How to wash your hands: https://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/

Finally, some of you may be aware Health Secretary Matt Hancock spoke on The Andrew Marr show of every Briton aged 70 or over potentially being told to stay at home for an extended period to protect themselves from coronavirus (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51895873).

With all the above considered this could significantly impact Curzon Park residents. As a Residents Association we take this issue very seriously and want to support all our residents as best we can during this difficult period (currently, of unknown duration).

We are already looking in to potential methods on how we can safely support vulnerable residents and will look to action this once clearer guidance/ information is available.

We will be in touch with further information in due course.

Best wishes

Mike Davies

CPRA Chairman

Photos from Carols on the Green

Last December we had another enjoyable Carols on the Green.  We sang plenty of carols,  enjoyed the delicious mulled wine, mince pies and hot chocolate and met up with our friends and neighbours.

The weather was crisp and dry and everyone was in good voice.  Thanks again to everyone involved in making the event happen.

Here is a selection of photographs from the evening.  We look forward to seeing everyone in December 2020.
