  10. Creating art helped woman through cancer 'ordeal'

    BBC News

    A Derbyshire woman is publishing a book of art and poetry she created while she was recovering from aggressive ovarian cancer.

    Karen Clegg, from Breaston, plans to donate the proceeds from Moments to Derbyshire Mind, because she says producing art helped her deal with the mental side of her ordeal.

    She said she hoped to encourage other people to look into an activity or hobby as a way of dealing with mental illness or difficult life events.

    Karen Clegg

    She said: "I’d always advise someone who is going through a difficult experience or time in their lives to do something active or creative.

    “Even if you don’t think what you’ve done is very good, the feeling you get from just doing it and getting it out there is really powerful.”

    A launch event for the book is due to take place at Quad in Derby on Thursday.

  11. Speed limits could be cut to boost cycling

    There are plans to cut speed limits on two roads in Newark in a bid to treble the number of people who cycle to work.

    Hawton Road and Lincoln Road could be reduced from 40mph to 30mph as part of Nottinghamshire County Council's cycling strategy.

    Lincoln Road, Newark

    The Conservative-led authority, which has secured £860,000 of funding, said it would also upgrade existing cycling routes and provide new routes to create "joined-up coherent cycle networks" throughout the town.

    A report to be presented to the county council on Thursday said feedback from a consultation held last September supported the reduced speed limit as "beneficial to users' safety", and said it had committed to increasing cycling levels from 3% to 10% by 2025.

    Hawton Road, Newark

    Tory councillor Keith Girling has objected to the proposed 30mph limit on Hawton Road saying it's wrong to penalise all motorists.

    Mr Girling added that the road has been monitored and "at no time has it been shown to be a fast or unsafe road."

  12. Don McLean adds name to charity guitar

    BBC News

    Don McLean has added his signature to a guitar that will be used to raise money for the East Midlands children's hospice Rainbows.

    The American singer-songwriter added his name to the instrument when he met with guitar owner Dave Allen and charity worker Andy Goss.

    Don McLean

    The Fender Stratocaster has already been signed by Eric Clapton, Brian May and Jimmy Page. It went missing 10 years ago but was recovered by Leicestershire Police earlier this year.

    The guitar will be sold at auction for Rainbows in December - and it's hoped more rock "legends" will have signed it by then. Those approached to add their names include Alice Cooper, The Hollywood Vampires, Sir Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck and Ozzy Osbourne.
