Welcome to Hasland Magazine

Hello ‐ I hope you’ve all had a fantastic April and May and enjoyed the Easter and Spring Bank breaks. The sun is shining as I type and I’m hoping it stays with us for a good while yet.

This issue I’ve been inundated with lots of dates for your diary, events and news. I was worried I wouldn’t find enough local news to write about when I launched the magazine but I couldn’t have been more wrong. This time last year I had no idea that there were so many groups, clubs and teams in Hasland. I’ve already started the editorial list for the August / September issue! Do you have any news or charity events to share? Non‐profit events can be put in free of charge if space permits. I have some great advertising packages available for businesses if you are thinking of booking more than one issue such as editorial, food reviews and tried and tested features. I’m always happy to come out and chat how the magazine can work for you. It’s almost time for the Hasland Gala on the 9th June from 11am‐4pm. I will be there to chat about the magazine and to share back issues. I’m also hoping to offer a few fun activities for the kids. The patient participation group from Inspire Health GP Surgeries will be there too to promote and discuss their plans to make Hasland ‘Dementia Friendly’. Read more in their article inside. Please come along and support the gala ‐ it’s such a great day out. I’m so greatful to all the businesses who advertise with the magazine and make the publication possible ‐ please remember to let them know if you saw their ad in any of our issues ‐ feedback is so important to advertisers. We all know it’s great for our local economy to shop local where we can.

Have a fabulous June & July! - Trudy Many thanks to John‐Charles Tanner for his news updates and for contributing this issue’s article about the Anzac Day Service at Spital Cemetery.

local business review

THE STAR OF SALL Authentic indian cuisine

My husband Tony and I went along to try the food at The Star of Sall. It was a Monday night which is the ‘eat as much as you like’ buffet night at The Star. Tony was definitely up for that option but due to my vegan diet I asked if it was possible to order from the main menu ‐ no problem at all. Our super‐friendly waitress Daria took our drinks order and soon returned with a cold New Zealand house white wine for me and a coke for Tony as well as fresh poppadoms and pickle tray. The restaurant has a great relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. The aromas coming from the kitchen and the buffet areas were mouth watering. The other diners all seemed happy too. Whilst Tony went off to explore the buffet options I chose my starter and main course from the main menu. Daria had already checked for me which Vegetable Samosa dishes were suitable. I ordered a vegetable samosa starter and a vegetable bhuna main with vegetable fried rice. Daria told me that the samosas are all homemade and I could certainly tell. The pastry was delicious and the filling had a nice spice to it. Tony chose chicken and vegetable samosas, chicken pakora, masala fish and salad as his starter. He said they were all Buffet starter delicious especially the fish platter which isn’t something he would normally order if having Chana paneer to choose from the menu. Daria was keen to check if everything was ok with our food and never far away if we needed a drinks refill. Tony returned from the buffet with a main course platter of chicken rogan josh, Star of Sall special bhuna, pilau rice and garlic naan bread. He said it had definitely been a difficult choice. He had been tempted by the chana paneer as he said that the smell when he opened the serving dish was amazing. We also saw a diner returning for more chicken tikka masala too ‐ obviously another favourite. He said his dinner was fantastic, the chicken rogan josh was lovely and rich and that he particularly enjoyed the Star of Sall special bhuna which had meat and seafood in a medium spiced sauce. My vegetable bhuna was really good. Plenty of vegetables including beautifully soft potato in a bhuna sauce with lots of fresh coriander and green chillis. The rice was also delicious with chick peas adding an extra touch. I was completely full! Daria told me that the chef, Banaras is very proud of his cookery. He came out to ask if we had enjoyed our meal too. I’d definitely recommend giving them a try.

Award for Hasland Rainbows’ Creative Photo

1st Hasland Rainbows were recently awarded a prize after young Rainbow Robyn won a competition involving a Guiding recruitment drive poster to advertise Rainbows and Guiding. Each girl was given a recruitment poster and asked to have their photograph taken holding the poster in the most interesting or unusual location they could think ok. Robyn had her photograph taken whilst indoor rock climbing! Robyn herself won a Girlguiding Rainbow camp blanket and the unit also received a £20 voucher for the Girlguiding shop. The prizes were presented during the unit meeting in March by the County Commissioner.

Well done Robyn!

Cover artist - Lindsey Hopkins - Pij Inc Our cover artwork this issue is by the talented lady behind ‘Pij Inc’, Lindsey Hopkins. I asked Lindsey to fill me in about her company and the gorgeous pictures she creates: “When I signed up for a redundancy package eight years ago, little did I imagine that I be running my own creative business in just a couple of years’ time. Within two months of leaving my well‐paid job, I found out I was pregnant with twins. It was quite a shock! That put paid to my plan of finding another ‘normal’ job fairly quickly. I’d miscarried three babies between this pregnancy, and my then three year old son’s birth, so I was determined to rest, for a short while, at least. Before too long though, I was bored. I started to paint furniture and make artwork for friends and family ‐ the scrabble and map‐based pictures that you see quite often. It kept me busy, and made me a little pocket money. I loved it. My twins came along, and to celebrate, I made us a hanging wooden heart, using pink and blue buttons to represent our now complete family. The idea of drawing a smile on a button, and turning it into a face had come to me on a particularly exhausted afternoon after a mammoth feeding session. I was trying desperately to get to sleep, but I got the idea instead, and got up to sketch it out, before it slipped away again. I’m so glad I did. I posted a photo of the finished heart on facebook, and suddenly, I had thirty or forty orders. Obviously, with baby twins in the house, my time ‐ and energy levels ‐ were very limited. But people

understood, and waited. Before I knew it, I had a business burgeoning around me. Orders were coming from further afield as word spread. I had to create a separate facebook business page, called Pij Inc, to help me keep on top of everything. Within a couple of weeks of officially starting up, I had over 500 page likes. I hadn’t been sure that anyone but the closest family and friends would look me up and add me, but as it turned out, I had fantastic support from all around me. I’ve never looked back. My girls are now seven and in full‐time school. My page has over 6,000 followers, and keeps me very busy. I’ve posted pictures all over the world. The pictures have evolved so much, but still revolve around that central idea of button heads. Because they are so very adaptable to all life’s celebrations, I get lots of repeat orders from lovely, loyal customers, and as they are gifted, they spread. They’re contagious little pics. I really would not have imagined that I was able to work in this flexible and creative way. My background is not at all artistic. I feel so lucky to be able to work in my own home, around my three childrens’ schooling and commitments. If you have a little original idea, just go for it. Social media is a wonderful way to spread the word. The world is your oyster, and it’s truly at your fingertips. You can find examples of Lindsay’s work in Meringue on Chatsworth Road. If you would like to place or discuss an order you can find her on Facebook or call 07788 297414.

Craft Fairs at Chandlers Chandler’s Bar in Chesterfield have recently hosted a couple of Arts and Crafts events with local designers and makers, cocktails and cakes. My friend Flis Llewellyn went to the April event and told me how impressed she was with the stalls and what a lovely event the fair was. Of course she brought back goodies to share including some amazing truffles from ‘Truffley Scrumptious’. Natalie Bramall ‘Natalie B’s selling page’ offered some divine home interior items such as hand made cushions, purses and cosmetic bags at really reasonable prices. She also loved the Mila & Mama stall offering bridal and occasion gifts, cake toppers, decor and more. All the above traders can be found on Facebook ‐ keep on eye on the Chandler’s Bar page for details of their next craft fair and other events too. 10

local business review

andy’s bistro Greek inspired afternoon tea Andy’s Bistro have been hosting a run of great theme nights lately, but over the Easter holidays they offered a ‘Greek Inspired afternoon tea’. I was lucky enough to pop along and enjoy this treat. I had told chef Anthi that I am a vegan and I did wonder how she would find the time to prepare separate dishes for me. I really shouldn’t have worried! I wasn’t aware that many people in Cyprus observe a period of time before Easter and Christmas where they follow a vegan diet, so Anthi was full of bright ideas and recipes. The bistro is a lovely place to sit and eat, completely separate from the chip shop next door. My husband Tony and I were served our drinks and chef Anthi checked if there was anything that we didn’t like to eat. Soon after our afternoon tea platters arrived. They looked amazing! There was definitely enough delicious food for two people on each of our platters. Tony’s meal was made up of a range of delicious sandwiches which were even served on a selection of different breads. The fillings included chicken and tzatziki and bacon with halloumi and

spicy tomato jam. The bruschetta was topped with feta and olive. The second tier had traditional cheese pie, a feta cheese pastry, a Cypriot sausage to be served with a drizzle of lemon juice and two delicious pastries similar to baklava. An olive scone and a cheese scone rested on the layer above. There was so much food that the cakes were served afterwards on a separate sharing platter. My afternoon tea was really lovely. I was so impressed that Anthi had sourced vegan cheese for my sandwiches, pies and cheese scone as well as soya yoghurt for my own tzatziki. I had a melted cheese roll with spicy tomato jam and cucumber, a tzatziki roll, a bruschetta with sun dried tomato, olives and capers and a roasted vegetable and olive oil sandwich. Above I had similar pastries including my own version of the sausage made with a mushroom filling. The smell of warm cinnamon from the sweet pastries was mouth watering and my own scones rested above made with vegan ingredients. My favourites were the Cypriot sausage, the bruschetta and the traditional cheese pastry. All of the food was very well prepared with a lot of attention to detail to make each item look delicious. We were already full by the time the cake platter arrived. A couple sitting nearby told us that they are regulars at Andy’s and often have to ask for a take‐away box as there is always so much lovely food. Anthi explained that the vegan cake options were a chocolate muffin, a chocolate chip muffin, a delicious small cake similar to a treacle sponge as well as a fruit and cinnamon bun. Tony’s choice was a little more traditional including a wonderful Cypriot orange cake as well as chocolate cake, strawberry cake and a lovely fresh cream cake. Anthi is happy to cater to any dietary needs, just let her know in advance. I’d definitely recommend a visit! Andy’s Bistro, 52‐54 Mansfield Road, Hasland S41 0JA Tel: 01246 203132.

Scouts’ Sponsored Snowdon Run

A brave scout and her father, the scout group chairman, are attempting an amazing run up Mount Snowdon this summer. A support team from the scout group will accompany them. They hope to raise funds for 1st Hasland Scouts who need to save £2000 to buy new camping equipment for their unit. Jess Joel explains: “My name is Jess Joel and in August my Dad, Michael, and I are attempting a sponsored hill run for 1st Hasland Scout Group. This is the group my Dad and I participate in; he is the Group Chair and I am a scout. We are doing this is an aim to give back to the group. We will be running up Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in Wales, and the second highest in the UK. We are running via Llanberis Pass (which follows the mountain railway to the summit). We will run a total of 14km and reach 3,560ft. We intend to raise £500 which will all go towards funding new camping equipment for the group and Peak 2020. We hope you can sponsor us as we embark on our challenge, and will be grateful for any support you can give.” If you would like to sponsor Michael and Jess on their expedition please go to www.gofundme.com and search for 1st Hasland Scout Group.

Would you be interested in joining a Chesterfield branch of the Great Central Railway Society? A monthly presentation meeting could potentially be held at Hasland Working Men’s Club.

The Chesterfield Branch of Peak Railway Association already meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Hasland Working Men’s Club at 7.30pm. David Grainger is considering launching a Chesterfield branch of the Great Central Railway Society on Tuesday’s at the same venue at either 2.30pm or 7.30pm, whichever attracts the greater interest. Meetings would be sociable events open to allcomers and a great chance for enthusiasts to get together. As there is currently no charge for the use of the venue no admission fee would be made, although the venue does encourage members to take out their club membership (£5 annually which includes discounts on the already low priced drinks). Guest speaker costs would be covered by a raffle and voluntary donations. The group would launch in the new year if enough interest is shown.

Here come the holidays! The school year is now coming to a close and if you are anything like me you have already given yourself a high five (in secret of course), however, now comes the biggest test – the 6 weeks holidays! It is important to check your employer’s policy on taking holidays, as you may not be able to take more than 2 weeks holiday at any one time. Your employer may also have a policy of only allowing a set number of people off at the same time which can be an issue if your colleagues are also working parents. Employers may operate a separate rota system or a first come, first served, policy in which case you need to plan your holidays ahead to avoid being pipped to the post! The Working Time Regulations allow employees a minimum of 5.6 weeks holiday each year, which still isn’t enough to cover the annual school holidays leaving most parents juggling their entitlement to manage this. Holiday clubs can be a great way of ensuring your child has care and is kept active for the day, although often the opening times of the clubs can conflict with normal working hours. Speak to your employer about working flexibly for the holidays or those days you need to rely on private care. Depending on the demands of your work your employer may be agreeable to you changing your start and finish time or working some hours from home. If you and your employer can agree this between yourselves, you do not need to make a formal flexible working request and the change can be temporary. If your employer operates flexible working or allows you to accrue ‘Time Off In Lieu’ (TOIL) this can be another way to deal with cover. TOIL allows employees to accrue time to be taken at a later date without using holiday or resorting to asking for unpaid leave. In the event that your child becomes ill or your care provider lets you down, you are entitled to reasonable unpaid time off to deal with this as an emergency situation. This should not be seen as an opportunity to take the full holiday period off, but is there to allow you to provide immediate cover and make new arrangements for childcare. Whilst the entitlement is to unpaid leave, your employer may have a policy of providing a number of paid days across the year and you should check the policy for your entitlement. The key to successfully arranging holiday cover is definitely early planning and clear communication with your employer.

Dawn Trumpet Call in Spital Article written by John‐Charles Tanner

Residents of Spital and Hasland may have been awoken by a dawn trumpet call on 25th April commemorating ANZAC Day. But what is ANZAC Day and what does this have to do with Chesterfield, you may well ask? Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served". Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally devised to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign, their first engagement in the First World War(1914–1918). Since then it has been customary to hold a simple Dawn Service not only in Australia and New Zealand but in countries all around the world.

So why Chesterfield ? Spital Cemetery has a significant number of Commonwealth War Graves Commission graves from World War 1 (35) and World War 2 (8) for a small provincial cemetery and also a number of memorials on family graves to sons, husbands and nephews who did not return. The Friends of Spital Cemetery feel it is their responsibility to show in Spital that “we will not forget” and now hold three Remembrance Services yearly in the cemetery; one marking Remembrance Day which is held on the Monday of the week before 11th November, while the other two are held on International Women’s Day in March and on ANZAC day in April. Chesterfield became involved last year when Ed Fordham, the Vice‐ Chair of Friends of Spital Cemetery, was contacted by Barry Telfer, a bugler, who was over from NZ and had been invited to participate in the town’s service. Ed is on the Council WW1 committee coordinating events in the area and invited Barry to join the Dawn Service in Spital. Barry is now back in NZ but sent the following email to show his solidarity with Chesterfield: "Congratulations to you and your associates for continuing the tradition.

I bugled at the Dawn Service at Rottnest Island, then in the afternoon at a football match, then at a Sunset service for the National Trust by the Swan River. A lovely day. Sunny 28 degrees.”

Local Connection Although there are no New Zealanders or Australians actually buried in the Cemetery, 2000 men and women emigrated to NZ and Australia from North Derbyshire in the pre‐war period and many of them went on to serve. At the service all forty‐three Chesterfield War Dead names are called out including the name of Thomas Gascoyne, whose great grand‐nephew, John Gascoyne, is Lay‐Reader at St Leonard’s. Thomas emigrated to NZ in 1907 and died at Paschendale in 1917.

Dawn Service 2019 A group of 13 people including His Worship The Mayor of Chesterfield and the Lady Mayoress Cllr.and Mrs Stuart Brittain, members of the British Legion and Friends of Spital Cemetery attended this year’s Dawn Service of Remembrance which was led by Mr Ed Fordham. The “Last Post” and “Reveille” were played by Mr John‐Charles Tanner.

local business review

swIM 1-2-1

I’ve heard many great reports about Hasland swimming experts ‐ Swim 1‐2‐1. A lot of my friends children have learned to swim there but I hadn’t tried it myself. My youngest daughter has been asking for lessons for a while now so I decided to visit the team at 1‐2‐1 to see what they could offer. I chatted with owner Lynn and swimming instructor Keely about my daughter Rowen who is 7. Although she loves water and can swim ‘in a fashion’ she doesn’t have any strong strokes and I’m not sure she could take care of herself if she fell into water. Lynn explained that the team can help children at any level of their swimming journey and that children who are learning usually follow the ASA Swim Challenge Programme which takes them from beginner through to safe swimmer. We decided to plan a ‘crash course’ of five lessons for Rowen to get her started. I had a tour of the pool and grounds whilst I was there ‐ it’s such a tranquil place to visit and learn to swim. There’s no hustle and bustle and no splashing groups to distract the learner from concentrating on the teaching. I was surprised to learn that the house also hosts some stunning holiday accommodation. Rowen was very excited to arrive for her first lesson, if a little nervous. She was soon put at ease by her lovely instructor Janet. She climbed confidently into the warm water after changing in the private changing cubicles. Janet explained that the school always teach breast stroke to children first. This was quite new to Rowen so I expected it to be a little confusing but Janet carefully showed her the leg actions using floats to hold up Rowen’s arms and head. Once that was mastered she added on the arm movements. By the end of lesson one she had already achieved her first two stickers and certificates for swimming on front and back with the aid of floats. She was over the moon and couldn’t wait for the next session. Lesson 2 was taught by Samantha, another hugely experienced instructor with plenty of patience. She explained to Rowen that the water is her friend and will hold her up as long as she positions herself correctly. Full of confidence she received her next certificate for swimming 5m on her back unaided. Each lesson ends with a quick playtime for the children with a choice of games such as hook‐a‐duck or jumping in the water. All of these games secretly increase water confidence whilst the child is having fun. By the end of lesson 5 Rowen had managed a 20m swim on her back and received 4 stickers and certificates. She was really enthusiastic to continue her lessons so I have booked her in for more. Lynn told me that Swim 1‐2‐1 teach people from many different backgrounds. They specialise in swimming lessons for those with special educational needs and have plenty of term time daytime availability for adult lessons. They can also help people who are recovering from surgery or injury or even expert swimmers looking to perfect their stroke. Lynn showed me a recent review from an athlete who came for lessons whilst preparing for a triathlon: “Hi Lynne, I promised I’d let you know how I got on, well it was great! I smashed the 800m swim in 9mins 30! Before my sessions with you I couldn’t swim more than 50m without struggling to breathe. Thank you.” I told Lynn that since shoulder surgery I have found that swimming hurts the tendons in my shoulder. I have tried breast stroke but I simply don’t travel very far. She invited me to try 2 lessons with her to see if they could help. I’ve never been a strong swimmer so I thought this might be the ideal way to see if I can get the swimming bug! I was a little nervous before my first lesson as I always struggle to put my face in the water and I’m quite anxious about feeling out of control. During our first session Lynn basically re‐taught me how to swim. Although I’m quite confident doing a few strokes of front crawl I’ve essentially been making it much harder than it needed to be. My understanding of how our bodies move through water was incorrect. For example I thought that the outward motion of our arms during breast stroke moved us through the water ‐ not true ‐ it’s the forward push of our arms that does that. With this new knowledge and technique I completed several widths of the pool with much less effort almost straight away. When we moved onto front crawl Lynn explained that I needed to find my strongest side which would become my breathing side, meaning my weaker shoulder didn’t take quite so much strain. She also patiently showed me the correct arm motion for crawl which meant that I wasn’t yanking at my joints and aggravating my old injury. I realised that swimming will probably be the best thing I can do now in order to strengthen the muscles and mobility in that area. Lynn also suggested a few tricks to get the most out of a swimming workout, including squeezing in the stomach muscles for a width or swimming with arms alone. She explained the importance of also spending time swimming on your back to change the muscles used. I finished my second session with several lengths of front crawl with my face in the water in between breaths ‐ amazing!

1-2-1 swimming tuition in a warm private pool Fun and enjoyable lessons Adult lesson specialist Post-op rehabilitation exercise Swimming stroke analysis Personalised tuition Qualified experienced instructors Daytime availability Swim 1-2-1 owners Lynn & Glyn invite you to try a different kind of swim. No crowds, no splashing, no cold water and no pressure. Swimming is their passion. Originally from Leeds before moving to Chesterfield in 1996, the couple have always managed pools and taught swimming. They proudly owned and developed the Swim School in New Whittington until family circumstances meant they needed a lifestyle change and they wanted to work with individual swimmers to help people achieve their goals. Swim 1-2-1 opened in 2004 and has become a thriving business with 8 swim instructors and 4 reception staff. Many of their staff have worked for them for many years including swim instructor Keeley who has been with them since the business began when she was just 16. Swim 1-2-1 is set in the grounds of a beautiful house on Mansfield Road. The lovely pool is located in a large conservatory style building on the rear garden complete with private changing room. There are also luxury holiday lets available on site which can be rented purely as holiday stays or in combination with a residential swimming course. Many guests have travelled across England to combine a Peak District holiday with the chance to learn to swim. The couple love Hasland and are proud to be part of our buzzing community. When they have residential guests they always signpost them to our great choice of local restaurants, takeaways, bars and shops. They recently hosted Maxwell Caulfield and Juliet Mills whilst they were starring in ‘The Lady Vanishes’ at the Pomegranate Theatre.

Why is Swim 1-2-1 different? Many people feel uncomfortable, nervous or intimidated by busy crowded swimming pools or communal changing rooms. The thought of trying to swim amongst those more confident than themselves can be offputting. Although group swimming lessons work for many people they aren’t for everyone. If you prefer to learn in a safe and peaceful setting then you should definitely give it a try. They offer a great environment for adult beginners looking to learn to swim. The pool at Swim 1-2-1 is kept at a warm 32˚C compared to the usual 27˚C pool temperature which means it’s great for those who feel the cold due to illness or age. The pool is also cleaned by UV filtering. This means that very little chlorine is needed as the water is cleaned by passing through a UV light. This is ideal for anyone with sensitive skin or those who don’t like the smell of chlorine. The team are experts in stroke analysis, meaning they can help even long term swimmers perfect their stroke. They have also helped triathlon candidates who may have running and cycling experience but aren’t strong swimmers. They also specialise in swimming lessons for people with special educational needs or challenging behaviour. They have the qualifications and patience necessary to help everyone to thrive in the pool. Children’s lessons are very popular at 1-2-1. The team like to make sure that there is plenty of communication with the child’s parents to ensure the child receives the best learning experience. They also work alongside Rykneld Swimming Club helping their young swimmers with their progress. Swimming lessons are usually booked in blocks of 5 x 30 minute session although one off lessons are available. If you would like to find out more about how you could benefit from 1-2-1 lessons just give them a call.

School holiday fun at The Asian Association During the Easter School holidays the Asian Association of Chesterfield offered some fantastic Easter craft workshops for children. I took my daughter Rowen and her friend Isla along to join in the fun. The craft teacher Kinnera was very friendly and showed the girls the crafts on offer. She guided them through their creation of some fabulous Easter greetings cards. There was a vast choice of stickers, ribbons, edgings, craft scissors paint and pens to choose from. The girls were completely in their element and enjoyed every minute of it. The sessions cost just £1 each and the children even received snacks and a drink during the break time ‐ incredible value. The premises are a great place for children. There is a separate kitchen and dining room / party room for the children to enjoy as well as the large room where the crafts took place. They had even hosted a children’s Easter disco the week before ‐ unfortunately we couldn’t make the date. The workshops were a great success and Kinnera plans to continue the sessions into the summer holidays.

Hasland Magazine

Can we make Hasland Dementia Friendly? Inspire Health are the group of GP Surgeries which includes both Hasland practices as well as Avenue House surgery in the town Centre. I was recently approached by Dr Ian Anderson from Inspire Health along with Philip Arrandale and John‐Charles Tanner who are both members of Inspire’s Patient Participation Group (PPG). They told me about their plan to make Hasland a ‘Dementia Friendly’ environment. This stems from a nationwide project by the Alzheimers Society to make our towns more accessible to and understanding of those who are living with dementia. Inspire are working to get all of their practices accredited as Dementia Friendly by the Alzheimers Society ‐ a process which involves meeting a list of criteria beginning with clear signage in the buildings, rapid diagnosis of dementia related illnesses, excellent communication with families of the patient, clear resources and signposting people onto other agencies that can help them to live their life to the full. Each Inspire practice has a Care Co‐ordinator who’s role it is to take information from the medical team about a patient’s symptoms and diagnosis. They can then help the patient and their family to access diverse care from both the social and voluntary sectors. They are a key contact for families to talk to and stay in touch with as circumstances change for patients. I asked Dr Anderson to explain the difference between dementia and Alzheimers to me as I wasn’t really clear. He told me that Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example. Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia but there are about 100 disease processes that can result in dementia. I was shocked to learn that dementia is the biggest cause of death in the UK, ahead of cancer and heart disease. Using national statistics it’s fair to say that approximately 1200 people aged over 65 in Hasland alone will be living with dementia at any one time. That’s 1200 families who are living with the effects of the disease and those statistics don’t include patients with young onset dementia. It’s more important than ever that communities learn how to support those in our society who are living with dementia and how our support can enhance their lives.

Can Hasland rise to the challenge? Inspire Health and their PPG believe that raising awareness at community level will have a greater positive impact on the lives of dementia patients. Becoming a supportive society really is the only way forward. Many people may not be aware that Chesterfield Borough Council have an Alzheimers Centre in Hasland offering resources to patients. It is hoped that the Alzheimers Society will be able to offer their trainers for local Dementia Friend training sessions in the near future. The Inspire PPG recently approached the Alzheimers Society to request a local weekly clinic with a specialist Dementia Support Worker. This now looks likely to happen from July and will provide a wonderful resource to patients. The worker could talk to families about how the patients dementia may progress over time and offer them a friendly face to signpost them to agencies who may be able to offer them the specific help they need. Appointments will be made through your GP practice.

What does it mean to be ‘Dementia Friendly’? The Alzheimer’s Society’s initiative is that we can all choose to become ‘Dementia Friends’ so that people with dementia can be understood and continue to be respected as individuals. This involves a free one hour training course. The course offers a much greater understanding of the condition and aims to change people’s perception of dementia. It’s very difficult to understand how much people go through when a family member develops dementia. John‐Charles told me that his mother had dementia and he felt he had no support when he was coping with her needs and very little help from her GP practice at that time. Since his dementia training he has looked back and feels that he would have dealt with things differently had he been more aware of the illness at the time. Dr Anderson told me that he was very touched recently when a couple came to talk to their PPG. The lady had dementia and told them about how very frightening it is. She didn’t feel safe to venture into town by herself in case she became lost. This gave the group a real insight into what a terrifying experience dementia can be but how community support could really improve this. Philip Arrandale has spent some time talking to those who are caring for members of their family who have dementia. It can be a real struggle and they need to be able to take a break. Part of being a dementia friendly community may mean that we have ‘Dementia Friends’ who would be willing to help out for a little while. Ian Anderson recalled that when his father‐in‐law was living with dementia he had a volunteer carer for half a day each week which made a huge difference to their lives. The family were able to get on with other things during that time but also his father had a break and a change of scenery. The volunteer carefully chose visits to suit his personality such as the Crich Tramway 22

Museum due to his engineering background. It’s important to remember that even though a patient may not recall exactly where they went and what they did on a day out, the happy mood and emotions that it brings do remain. This is something that is re‐inforced during the training course. It’s very easy to be caught up in our busy lives and not call in on a relative with dementia or to do so but find it stressful, particularly if they no longer recognise you. Dementia Friendly training can help with strategies to deal with situations like this so that there is less emotional distress on both sides. There are some great resources around for those living with dementia. Chesterfield Theatres offer dementia friendly cinema screenings and museums offer glimpses of the past too. John Charles told me about a museum he took his mother too which had a real farmer on site making butter. His Mum had grown up on a farm and the visit opened up a little window into her past for her. Everyone living with dementia is still an individual with their own personality and experiences. Ian recalled a story from his training about a lady in a nursing home who was constantly tapping away with her hands whilst sat in her chair ‐ no one had any idea what she was doing and it became very infuriating. Eventually it emerged that she had been at Bletchley Park and thought she was tapping out Morse Code. In her own mind she was saving lives. Trying to understand the individual is very important and the dementia friendly training course can help with that. You may also find that it makes your more understanding as a person.

What can we do? Essentially the group are looking for dementia ambassadors in Hasland. Maybe you are a shop or cafe owner who is willing to attend the short course and learn simple strategies to make your business a safe place for a person with dementia. Maybe your church has one or two members who may train just to know what to do if someone becomes disorientated. A garage may have a staff member who knows what to look for to realise that someone is feeling confused or vulnerable. There is a lot you can do in return for very little of your time. If you already run any kind of activity in our area maybe the sessions can become dementia friendly with very little change. Food and music are particularly good memory triggers for those with dementia ‐ maybe we can find a way to host local tea dances or coffee mornings with vintage music and dress. The group believe that if we can make Hasland dementia friendly then it will become more friendly for everyone. If we all try to be more understanding and caring towards those with long term conditions that can only be a positive for our community.

What happens next? Meet at Hasland Gala! Inspire Health and their Patient Participation Group invite you to visit them at their stall at Hasland Gala on the 9th June from 11am‐4pm where they will be talking to people about the project and the PPG. The Alzheimers Association will also be present as well as Lloyds Pharmacy who will be looking a how they can help the project as well as promoting healthy living and offering blood pressure checks.

Watch this space for more information about the project including dates that are available for Dementia Friends training. I will also be happy to publish and promote a list of any companies who get on board with the project and become ‘Dementia Friendly’. In time the group hope to compile a public register of local Dementia Friendly businesses.

Schools’ healthy eating enterprise In March I was lucky enough to be invited to Casa Hotel as a guest at a fabulous healthy eating event organised by the Hasland cluster schools. Hasland Junior School headteacher John Stringer had previously told me about the project which involved each child planning out a healthy lunchbox meal, initially at home. The children then worked in pairs in the classroom to perfect a lunchbox together before they were all submitted to see which would be chosen as the winners. Those children were then invited to the fabulous event held at Casa Hotel to present their lunches to special guests and parents in a bid to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating. I didn’t really have an idea of the scale of the event until the day itself. On arrival at Casa I was greeted by close to 100 children from Hasland Junior School, Hasland Infant School and Hady and Calow Primary Schools. There were also many guests including the Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield, MP Toby Perkins, School Governer Barbara Arrandale MBE, our local Community Police Officer, headteachers of each school, Matt Atkinson from Chesterfield Borough Council, Tesco’s Community Champion, Frances Butterley ‐ operations manager for school meals and many more. My partner for lunch was a lovely girl from Hasland Infants called Olivia. She was the winner from class 10 and had brought along her lunch idea of cous cous with sausage, vegetables and pesto. This was followed by a blueberry and jelly bean muffin and a portion of fresh fruit salad. I particularly enjoyed the delicious mixed fruit juice. All of this was served to me in a hand decorated lunch bag. Olivia told me how much she had enjoyed the project and what a lovely time she was having at the event. Other winning meals including an all day breakfast sandwich, smoothies, mackerel dishes and salads as well as healthy fruit drinks. Toby Perkins told me that he had cleared his entire lunchbox including all of his houmous. He said his wrap sandwich was good enough to sell! The Mayor, Stuart Brittain was sat with children from Hady School. He complimented pupils Isaac and George on their social confidence and commented that his mackerel lunch was delicious. Calow school headteacher Mr Sumner said his meal was also fabulous, especially his water which was infused with fresh strawberries. Each guest received a recipe card showing one of the winning dishes. These will eventually be made into a recipe booklet which will be offered to parents, providing a great resource for new inspiration for their child’s meals. It truly was a brilliant event. The children who attended amazed their guests with their knowledge of healthy food as well as their communication skills and good manners. At the end of the event some of the guests offered their thanks. Barbara Arrandale said she thought it was a fantastic project, she especially liked the artwork on the lunch bags ‐ each of which was unique. She complimented the children on their food and stunning company. Hasland Infant School headteacher Mrs Wain said that they were very happy to be part of the project but she felt the most thanks should go to Mrs Chapman, head of Hady Primary School and Mr Stringer as they had done most of the organisation. She thought it had been a fabulous event. I had a really lovely day, the children were great company and I thought the whole event was a great idea. Pictured from top left to bottom right: My lunch partner Olivia and I with Anna Lomas ‐ teacher at Hasland Infant School; Toby Perkins with his lunch partner; Barbara Arrandale with pupils from Hasland Infants; Matt Atkinson from Chesterfield Borough Council enjoying his blueberry & jellybean muffin with his lunch mate; John Stringer, headteacher of Hasland Junior School; Mayoress Maureen Brittain with Emily, Florence & Ava from Hasland Junior School; Emmy & Anya from Hasland Junior School; two of the great lunchbox designs which decorated the tables.

A visit to Last month I was lucky enough to visit The Garden Secret Spa at Ringwood Hall. My friend Flis and I booked in for the ‘Hall Haven’ package which includes full day use of the amazing spa facilities as well as a 55 minute treatment and lunch or afternoon tea. Visitors also receive a welcome garden smoothie shot on arrival and use of a robe and towels as well as Garden Secret Spa flip flops to take home. I’ve seen photographs of the Spa before but not visited so I was really looking forward to my visit ‐ and desperately in need of a relaxing day off. We arrived early so enjoyed a filter coffee in the adjoining Glass House Brasserie first and chose our lunch from the menu. We were also given our delicious banana smoothie shots before being given a tour of the Spa by the Manager. I was surprised to see that there were so many doors and treatment rooms as I had thought it was quite a small building. I loved the Daydream and Treehouse relaxation lounges. The Spa is tucked away beautifully into the gardens of Ringwood Hall with plenty of green space to look out onto. We started the day with our individual treatments which we had booked in advance. I had chosen the True Elysium experience which involved a ‘lavish and refined back massage, in tandem with face and scalp sensorial treat’. It was 55 minutes of bliss as my therapist applied a cleansing scrub and then relaxing oils to the back of my legs, arms and torso then finishing off with a wonderful massage. This was followed by a face, scalp, neck and decollete massage. I emerged feeling fully relaxed and ready to enjoy my comfortable lounger by the pool for quite some time! The holistic nature of this massage means it really helps you to let go of your tension and unwind. Flis had chosen the Euphoric Balance Full Body Massage ‐ ‘Warm oils and scents enliven the soul and calm the spirit whilst healing hands promise to leave you feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated.’ She also had a choice of oil and chose the oriental fragrance before enjoying an amazing massage. Both of our therapists were very friendly and professional and made us feel completely pampered and at ease. After our recommended 30 minute break enjoying the poolside loungers we decided to give the Himalayan Salt Sauna a try. This was a gentle and warm dry sauna which can help to reduce inflammation and reduce discomfort. It can also help to fight infection. After trying out the experience showers we headed to the Vitality pool which has an infinity whirlpool area at one end where you can look out into the gardens. The other end hosts two ‘whirlpool chairs’. We followed this with a visit to the Blossom Steam Room, a beautiful citrus fragranced zone to open pores and detoxify the body. We also gave the poolside reflexology foot spas a try before drying off for our lunch at the Glass House Brasserie. Sadly I wasn’t able to sample the signature cocktails ‘The Garden Secret Mojito’ or the ‘Limesecco’ as I was driving but I really did enjoy my lunch. Flis had opted for a roasted vegetable wrap with avocado served with vegetable chips and crisp salad which was fresh and delicious. I had chosen the hot autumn cous cous salad with butternut squash, shallot, fennel, dried cranberry, sage and parsley with red wine vinaigrette dressing. It was really tasty and beautifully presented. We were quite full after lunch so decided we needed another little relax! It was a lovely sunny day so explored the Spa Garden. It was blissful to sit out on the loungers on the decking with warm blankets and look out on the garden and trees. We finished off the day with the fragrant Herbal Sauna followed by making use of the ice fountain to invigorate our skin and cool off before one last dip in the pool. Bliss! The changing rooms are clean and modern with private lockers which you operate with your own numeric code. The showers were luxurious too. All in all a fabulous relaxing day. I felt I was miles away from home but the journey was just 15 minutes! Packages start at £59. Hall Haven midweek package £99.

In May Vegan Knights hosted Chesterfield’s first Vegan Market ‐ and it was a fantastic success. Stalls included vegan food options such as burgers, curry, pickles, preserves, handmade cheese and some amazing cakes. I loved the ‘Sausage & Egg Muffin’ from Vegan Junk. Pizza Pi were there with their portable pizza oven, there were hot drinks on offer from CoffeecravingUK and the WineBox was there offering something a little more alcoholic. There were also clothing stalls, gift stalls, candles, skincare, pet care, tonics, lollies, curry kits, and did I mention cakes! Eve and Maisie from Bobbie Fox & Maisie Bee creations raised £60 to buy bulbs & plants to plant in Ashgate Hospice garden. Representatives from No Waste Cafe also attended to enquire about public interest in launching a cafe in Chesterfield. The event is planned to take place every two months with the following dates already confirmed: 14th July, 8th September, 1st December 10am‐4pm. If you would like more information or are interested in a stall visit the Facebook page: Vegan Knights Market.

We have members who have worked with wood related jobs for most of their adult lives and some with little or no experience. We have just completed our electrical upgrade project in our two workshop areas which will provide improved heating and lighting as well as additional electrical outlets, this will enable us to provide much needed additional equipment and workbenches with specific training areas which will enable us to offer wider facilities and training opportunities where our members can learn new skills. This upgrade would not be possible without various grants and generous support from Grassland Hasmoor Big Local, Derbyshire Voluntary Action and Derbyshire County Councils Five Ways to Wellbeing Project. Our members attend local events to raise awareness and promote our three main aims, combating social isolation, passing on woodworking skills and to provide a community service. We also raise funds by selling our own hand made wooden items using mainly recycled materials; the money raised has been reinvested in new equipment and our electrical upgrade project.

Theatre Review Hasland Theatre Company The Diary of Anne Frank I was lucky enough to see the opening night of this show in April at The Hasland Playhouse. I have never seen a theatre production of Anne Frank, to be honest I expected it to be a sad and sombre show throughout. It was so much more than that. The set was expertly built as ever, showing us the annex of rooms in which eight people spent over two years hiding away. It was ingenious that we could see into each space to see what was happening in them simultaneously. Director Val Ryan did a truly great job with this show. The cast told us Anne’s emotional story from the moment the family arrive in their new ‘home’ through to them being found by Nazi troops just as it seemed as though they would actually make it to the end of the war. I went through a rollercoaster of emotions during the play, I think it was impossible not to. We heard Anne’s teenage angst and thoughts of love towards housemate Peter, played very well by Dylan Whitehead, as well as her fears as she tried to grow up in an impossible situation. Her bravery was awe inspiring. Alicia Hodgson did a truly wonderful job with her character and at just 16 years old she should be very proud of herself. Mr & Mrs Frank were played remarkably well by Louise Sweeney and John Belli. John’s speech at the end about what happened to his family

was so moving that many people were in tears. Anne’s sister Margot was played beautifully by Lindsey Coombs. The rest of the cast all did a wonderful job of portraying the frustration of being trapped and frightened for so long. The atmosphere in the theatre was very tense at times, especially when we heard the recordings of nazi voices and the news headlines being played from the wireless. It was easy to imagine the sheer terror that ran through the characters each time they heard an unexpected siren or knock at the door. The sound and light team did a brilliant job. The moment that the nazi officers arrived had the whole audience moved and on the edge of their seats. This is my favourite show so far at The Playhouse, which was a surprise to be honest as I usually wouldn’t go for this kind play, however I was blown away by the quality of the acting and the production standard in general.. The Mayor & Mayoress Stuart and Anne Brittain were present at the show and afterwards held a collection for their chosen charities ‐ Ashgate Hospice Sponsor a Nurse and Chesterfield Citizens Advice Bureau. Next show: Macbeth. June 3rd‐8th. All seats £8.50 each. Tel: 01246 272271. Visit: haslandtheatrecompany.co.uk Photographs by Graham Martin

Hampton Painting Group invite you to join them

me when twork shown to is Gloria of the lovely ar n ht tio rig e lec th se l al On p. Just a sm Painting Grou e n works. th ow to r lk he ta of to e I visited showing me on

I was recently contacted by Gloria Harrison who told me about the Hampton Painting Group. The group formed around 4 years ago when Gloria was looking for an art activity close to home. She had been a member of various art and craft clubs over the years but found travelling to them an issue. The pottery group that she attended closed after 27 years when the room became an IT suite. This prompted Gloria along with her friend Margaret to launch Hampton Painting Group. The group have recently moved to a new room at the Hasland Methodist Church and have plenty of table and easel space to offer to new members. Members bring along their own painting kit and each pay into a kitty for tea and refreshments. Any adults are welcome to come along and join them from beginners through to those who have been enjoying art for years. It’s a great social club and they enjoy trips and meals out as well



as painting together. Trips have included a meal at The Young Vanish, Glapwell Nurseries and a Pollyanna Pickering exhibition. They enjoy a good natter too. One member told me how much he enjoys the club and that it is sometimes the only time he gets out and chats to people. The group often focus on a particular theme, previous projects have included lino‐cutting which was shown to them by one of their members as well as using fabric in art and adding texture to paintings with polyfilla. They have also had guest artists come along to show them new skills and are looking forward to a visit from Liz Linell who uses oriental style brushes and alcohol inks in her artwork. They enjoy all painting mediums including oil and acrylics, everyone can go with their own style and inspiration. Gloria showed me a painting she had recently completed having been inspired by a beautiful lady in bright clothing in the town centre.

If you would like to join the group pop along to Hasland Methodist Church on Mondays from 12 noon ‐ 3 pm. You can also contact Gloria Harrison, on 231381 if you would like to know more.
