Stapleford Town Council Announces Net Carbon Zero Status

Stapleford Town Council declared a climate emergency in September 2019 in response to reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  A report produced by the Council in Spring 2020 calculated the Council’s carbon foot-print to be 24 tonnes of CO2 equivalents for the year up to February 2020.

The Council recently agreed to offset the footprint by using an accredited scheme of tree planting in the East Midlands area. The Council acknowledges that offsetting should not be wholly relied upon as a solution, but until other energy saving initiatives are in place, felt it should be responsible for its emissions. The Council has already begun looking into ways of further reducing its footprint and becoming more energy efficient.

The Council is now looking to share its knowledge and expertise in calculating carbon footprints with local businesses and the community. The aim is to help reduce the carbon emissions for the whole of Stapleford as soon as possible.

A tribute to Ray Darby

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Councillor Ray Darby.

A long serving Councillor and resident of Stapleford, Ray was elected to the position of Town Mayor of Stapleford 3 times, finishing his last term in July this year. It’s almost as if the role of Mayor was written for him. Ray had a natural ability to connect with people and he could just light up a room as soon as he entered. He was a true gentleman with integrity who never stopped working for the community he served. We have lost one of our shining lights and his family are in all of our thoughts.

Everyone will have their own stories about Ray and how he touched their lives. He volunteered for a number of causes including teaching children to play badminton. We have put together a collection of memorable moments to celebrate Ray’s work in the community for the Town Council. He will be missed by all who knew him.
