What is the Clay Cross Town Centre Group?


Originally formed in October 2005 as part of the Clay Cross Community Regeneration Project and constituted as a not for profit organisation to work together with businesses, the voluntary sector and public bodies to improve the economy and local community.
Currently we have a membership of 46 Clay Cross businesses who together supply many different products and services. Membership expansion is a priority and this is open to all businesses and organisations who have a base within the Clay Cross North and South Wards of the District Council. Organisations interested in joining should contact the office of our Treasurer, Andrew King, on 01246 866149 Email:
We enjoy support from our local MP ‘Lee Rowley’ together with the local North East Derbyshire District Council and Clay Cross Parish Council.
Our objectives are summarised below:

The creation of an attractive and diverse town centre, encouraging businesses to grow

Improving the safety and security for businesses and the local community

Promotion of education & training within the town community

Promotion of recreation & leisure facilities
Our recent project ‘Support Local Business in Clay Cross’ has made significant progress by producing a regular newsletter delivered free to 6,000 local residents via the well established ‘Wings’ magazine. The Newsletter is a four page centre pullout from the Wings publication including a directory of all participating members. This publication runs together with a town centre group web site ensuring information on what’s on offer from local business is no more than a few clicks away.
We organise local community events and involve our members in community initiatives such as the ‘Tidy up campaign’ which started in the spring of 2012 and has resulted in cleaner shop windows and litter picking initiatives.
Annual membership costs £10, giving the right to participate in our regular monthly meetings and for an additional monthly charge of £10 you will be included in our directory of members published four times a year via the Wings magazine.
