Air Ambulance Service is Civic Chair’s 2021/22 charity

Derbyshire Dales District Council's new Civic Chairman has chosen the Air Ambulance Service as his nominated charity for the coming year.

Councillor Steve Wain will attend scores of events during his civic year and residents can support the Air Ambulance Service through the Civic Chairman's Just Giving page at

The Matlock ward member said:
"The Air Ambulance Service operates the local air ambulance services for Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and Warwickshire & Northamptonshire as well as providing the national paediatric and neonatal transfer service and the Children’s Air Ambulance which cover the whole of the UK.

"The Air Ambulance Service does not receive funding from the government for its daily missions. It relies entirely on voluntary donations and support from our communities and business, which means our support will help keep them flying."

The next large event Councillor Wain will be attending in an official role is Matlock's Welcome Back Weekend in Hall Leys Park on 20 and 21 August, featuring outdoor cinema, live music and an artisan market.

The District Council is hosting the weekend - celebrating the best of Matlock - in partnership with Matlock Town Council, Northern Light Cinema and Hecate Arts.

The Welcome Back Weekend in the award-winning town centre park is made possible by the 'Welcome Back Fund', which uses European Regional Development Fund cash provided by the Government to help high streets recover from the pandemic.
