Welcome to Hasland Magazine

Issue 6 is here! This issue marks a full year of Hasland Magazines as the first issue was October / November 2018.

I couldn’t be prouder of my magazine and I’m so greatful to all the businesses that have advertised and supported the project as well as all the local people who have contributed some great articles over the months. Each issue I hope that I will find enough information to fill the editorial pages and I am never stuck for content. There’s always something going on! The Ashgate Hospice Sparkle Walk made its way through Hasland late at night on the 6th July. It was fantastic site to see. Roughly 3200 people joined the walk to raise funds for such a great cause and were all rewarded with drinks and snacks at the halfway point in Eastwood Park which was kindly sponsored by Harold Lilleker & Sons Ltd. Well done to everyone involved!

I hope you are all having a break at some point over the summer, even if it’s simply a day out in the park with the kids or a picnic in the countryside. Our What’s On Guide is full up yet again with plenty to do nearby including childrens activities if you’re stuck for ideas. I hope all the children enjoy their 6 weeks off too! Please continue to send in your news, achievements and charity events if you would like them shared in the magazine.

Hasland Eagles’ success


for 3 enthusiastic self employed therapists to become part of the Soul Scissors team. We have 3 rooms to rent. You will be your own boss, work your own hours and work within a busy expanding business without the stress of running your own business. You will pay a set rent with utilities included.

The Hasland Eagles under 10’s team were celebrating in June having won their first ever tournament at Ashover. The team has many players from Hasland and Grassmoor and Amy Harris whose son Oliver is a member of the team got in touch to share their success. In the past the team had suffered a run of Saturday morning losses but they kept their team spirit alive and kept their goal in sight despite their disappointments. During the last football season their perseverance paid off and they began to turn things around before finally achieving the tournament win. They followed it up the following Saturday by gaining 3rd place at the Tansley tournament. They also gained first place at the Bolsover tournament in July. Keep at it kids - never give up!

It is essential that you have experience in the industry and ideally have your own client basis and are looking to increase your customers. We work as a team although we are self-employed and that's something we are passionate about when looking for someone to work along side us. We are looking for alternative therapists, eyelash and eyebrow technicians, masseurs and sport masseurs, aesthetics, chiropractors and chiropodists, tattooists and piercers to barbers.

Wildlife by Simon Debell Our beautiful cover photograph this issue has been kindly contributed by local wildlife photographer Simon Debell. Simon sent me a selection of his photography taken all over Chesterfield including Hasland fields, Avenue Washlands, Poolsbrook Park, Tapton Park, Linacre Woods and Carr Vale. The cover image of a baby Kingfisher was snapped on Chesterfield Canal. I asked Simon to tell me what sparked his interest in photography: “I spent most of my life as a contractor, removing asbestos from large industrial plants like power stations and factories. In general the work involved 10 or 12 hour shifts 7 days a week, usually away from home, with much of my free time spent in pubs. In 2013 I started working for a company looking after online asbestos databases for just two days a week and decided to stop drinking too. That left a rather big time hole to fill and that’s when my interest in photography developed. I’ve learned by trial and error and by watching Youtube videos. I purchased some new quality lenses in April and had a try at bird photography. Who knows, people photography may be next on my list!” Here’s a selection of Simon’s work to enjoy.

Statement from The Friends of Hasland Community Hub and Hasland Working Mens Club.

Work will start around the 22nd July, or earlier if possible and will last for approximately 3 weeks. This will not affect the opening hours and the normal running of the club. During the works it will be necessary, at least for part of the period, to close the existing main entrance. When this is the case access will be via the Mansfield Road entrance near the bus stop.

Kenzi’s Poetic Success

Charity Concert is a big hit I would like to say a huge well done from Hasland magazine to local girls Leah Hall & Chloe Elliott, both aged 15. The girls recently arranged a charity concert called ‘Musical Madness’ to raise funds for both Stand Up for Cancer and Leah Hall & Chloe Elliott Leah with Sarah Wilson from Clay Cross Tesco Girl Guides. The concert was held at Tupton Hall School on the 11th July and featured 17 singing and dancing acts which were all amazing. There was also a raffle with some fantastic prizes. The night was very well attended and refreshments were also sold which were kindly donated by the community team at Tesco Clay Cross. Castlewood Co‐op also donated items and are helping with the fundraising by organising a sponsored walk.


JUST £25* Kenzi Jupp is a year 6 student at Hasland Junior School. He will be moving up to Hasland Hall this September. In Spring Hasland Junior School marked Autism Awareness Day with a series of assemblies to raise awareness. Kenzi is autistic and was looking forward to the week but sadly he was off sick for most of it. His Mum and Nan suggested he do something at home to mark the occasion so Kenzi decided to try to write a poem about being autistic as he has enjoyed writing poetry in the past. Kenzi’s teachers were so impressed by the poem that they asked him to read it in assembly when he returned to school at the end of that week. His Mum Mandy was also proud of his writing and suggested that Kenzi enter a competition which she had seen online run by the Young Poets Network. The society soon replied to say that they loved the poem and were shortlisting it to go into a compilation poetry book that they were putting together. The book will be sold to raise funds and awareness for young people with mental health issues. To top it off Kenzi also won a prize of a £50 voucher as well as a copy of the book. Kenzi told he was ‘amazed that something that I don’t do much has turned into something so big’. He loved the response he got from his school mates when he read the poem in school and is thrilled with his prizes. I think that Kenzi’s poem is fantastic ‐ here it is for you to see for yourself:

“My Grandad’s beds are so comfy” - Thomas


I’m Just Me ‐ by Kenzi Jupp So, I am autistic, but what does it mean? As it’s an invisible condition that can’t be seen. Although sometimes you hear it in the way I talk, sometimes it makes me clumsy when I run or walk. So, I am autistic, but what can I do? Virtually everything the same as you, although sometimes I do it at a different speed. I can read a book in a flash but changing for PE? It’s extra time I need. So, I am autistic, but what have you heard? That we are all weird or a bunch of nerds?

But look back through the books of history ‐ so many famous people and inventors ‐ you will see! So, I am autistic and they were too, Albert Einstein, Mozart, Newton, to name but a few. Satoshi Tajiri, creater of Pokémon, Hans Christian Anderson, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs ‐ the list goes on. So, I am autistic, what can you do to help me be happy like all of you? Talk to me, include me, be my friend, accept who I am, I’m just Kenzi, The End.

If you would like to buy a copy of the book send me an email and I will notify you when it becomes available: trudyfordesign@gmail.com. 8

Hasland Magazine

Gala day winners Hasland Magazine hosted a stall at Hasland Gala on the 9th June ‐ it was a really fun day with a huge variety of attractions to enjoy.

I ran a competition on the day inviting children to colour, draw or write for the magazine. I received several entries for the colouring competition and the winning entry is pictured here, coloured beautifully by Grace Trolley from Hasland Junior School. Another Hasland Junior School pupil, Jessica Gray took up the challenge of writing up to 400 words for the chance to have her work printed in the magazine. The challenge was to write about ‘Why I love living in Hasland’. Here’s Jessica’s winning entry, beautifully written and full of great things to like about our area. Both girls will receive gift vouchers as prizes.

Welcomes new priest

The congregation of St. Paul’s Church, Hasland is celebrating the arrival of a new Parish Priest after an absence of nearly two years. Father Geoffrey Borrowdale SSC took up the post as Rector of Hasland and Vicar of Temple Normanton in April, following a Service of Institution by the then Acting Bishop of Derby ‐ the Right Reverend Jan McFarlane, Induction by the Archdeacon of Chesterfield ‐ the Venerable Carol Coslett, and a Service of Eucharist led by the Bishop of Ebbsfleet ‐ the Right Reverend Jonathan Goodall. The church was packed for the service, which was followed by refreshments in the Dining Room at Hasland Community School, courtesy of the Headteacher, Miss R. N. Moore. Father Geoffrey and his wife Claire have moved to Hasland from his previous parish in West London, and he has also served in the Dioceses of Chichester and Oxford.

He has ‘dived in at the deep end’ so to speak, and has already been involved in services at the four local old peoples’ homes, supporting the church‐based singing group, and enjoying Grassmoor Fun Day in early July. Father Geoffrey would very much like to welcome you to services at St. Paul’s, with Parish Sung Eucharist at 9.45am on Sunday mornings, or more intimate Eucharist or Benediction Services on Tuesday evening at 7.15pm and Saturday morning at 8.30am. Temple Normanton’s services are Parish Eucharist at 11.30am on Sunday, and Eucharist at 7.15pm on Thursday.

Why I love living in Hasland by Jessica Gray Hi! My name is Jessica. Do you know that there are three things I love about Hasland? The first is the school, the second is the clubs and the third is that my Nana and Grandad live just up the hill from us. Now I am going to talk about Hasland Junior school. We are the best school in the world. Shh don’t tell the infants!!! I like Hasland Junior school because: • The staff are really nice, kind and strict, when needed. • The children mostly play together nicely. I see my brother, James, who is in year 3, at playtime happily playing with his friends. • Everyday after school a different teacher does an after‐school club. I have done lots of clubs including netball, kick‐boxing, stop‐motion animation, hockey, tennis, dance and glee club. I loved all of them. There has also been football, cricket, rounders, running, samba sports and lots of others. • We have a head teacher called Mr Stringer who is funny, dresses up at every dress up day, does skipping in the playground, which everyone loves, and goes to school trips, school plays and discos. Unfortunately, he is retiring so we are having a new head teacher called Mr Winson. Mr Winson seems really nice and says he will do all the things that Mr Stringer did. The next thing that I love about is Hasland is the clubs that are on in the evening. The one I go to is 1st Hasland cubs. My brother has just moved up from Beavers to cubs and I am soon moving up to Scouts. These clubs are on a Friday evening at the youth centre. At spring bank we went to Drum Hill Camp for 3 nights. It was a lot of fun as I got to do things that I never thought I would get to do such as have the freedom to explore everywhere on camp with my friends. We did fire lighting with flint and steel and made S’mores. On the hottest day we did a water slide which was great fun. I tried archery, the inflatable assault course, went to a disco and talent show and tried circus skills, like riding a unicycle. We slept in tents and I shared a pod with another girl from cubs. We had lots of different foods like eggy bread, tortillas, Sunday dinner and sausages.


Spare Thyme Update

The Spare Thyme community allotment project at Mill Lane allotments, Grassmoor aims to bring together young and old, male and female, novice and experienced, skilled and unskilled people on a joint owned allotment which will be managed and harvested on a shared basis. As we move into our second season we are looking for likeminded people to join in and enjoy the satisfaction of growing our own food. We are now well settled on plot 26. We have a tool shed, a new potting shed and we have just finished constructing our new greenhouse. We are planting new seeds and seedlings, then tending and harvesting the produce as it grows. We hope to bring people from the community of Big Local Grassland Hasmoor together to learn new skills and to benefit psychologically, physically and socially.

Chandlers Bar & Pizza Pi ‐ the perfect combination!

I was planning a last minute birthday night out in June and looking for a venue to enjoy cocktails in a fun atmosphere with delicious food. Chandlers bar in Chesterfield is my go‐to for the perfect mixed cocktail and I noticed that they are now working with Pizza Pi Restaurant, offering their menu in Chandlers every night from Monday to Saturday and Saturday afternoons from noon. I have tried the fabulous pizza from Pizza Pi’s mobile oven at Chesterfield Vegan Market and was keen to try the food from the Beetwell Street restaurant too. I have heard some great reviews of the place which is proud to be a ‘proper wood‐fired Pizzeria’. I was able to reserve a table in Chandlers to make sure we had somewhere for the six of us to chat, eat, drink and relax in style. I love a night out in Chandlers, there’s always been a relaxed vibe in the bar with great music too. They have recently celebrated their 20th anniversary. The staff are super friendly and fast ‐ if you haven’t tried a cocktail by Louise, Rebekah, Roger and the team then you are missing out. We started the evening with cocktails of course, many of which were on offer for 2 for £10 before 8pm. My choice was a Rose Collins ‐ gin, Passoa, rose water, lemon juice, sugar syrup and soda water ‐ a fruity refreshing fizz. My friend Max can’t resist a Boston Tea Party which Rebekah happily made for her even though it isn’t on the menu. Max told me it was the best she’d had. Flis sampled the Charlie Chaplin ‐ mixed using Sloe Gin, Apricot Brandy and Lemon Juice ‐ this was tart, fruity and delicious. We also tried the Rhubarb and Rosehip gin which was delicately flavoured, not too sweet and served with fresh strawberries and lime. There is a huge range of gins to choose from including Lemon Sherbet, Violet and Bloom Gin as well as every other drink I can think of as you can see from the well stocked bar. Pizza Pi offer a main menu and a vegan menu which is almost as long. Both have choices of appetisers including olives, garlic mushrooms and stuffed chillies. There is a range of loaded fries and of course several pizza and garlic bread options as well as salad bowls, all of which sounded fantastic. We ordered our food with Rebekah and within 20 minutes our table was set with stylish plates, cutlery and serviettes and our food was served. Two of us are vegan so had chosen to share. We ordered Stuffed Chillies ‐ chilli boats fried in garlic oil and stuffed with vegan cheese; Rosso Fries ‐ topped with vegan mozzarella, red onion and roasted red peppers; and Vegan Pizza Pesto with a pesto and garlic oil base, vegan mozzarella, mushrooms and asparagus. Our food was amazing, the vegan pesto was the best I’ve tried and the vegan cheese that they use melts beautifully. The chilli skins were coated in cheese and served on a bed of fresh salad and the fries had just the right amount of spice. Jo tried the Pizza Margherita which was far from plain. The rich tomato sauce and creamy mozzarella was topped with fresh basil. Max opted for the Pizza Rosso with diced chorizo, red onion and roasted red peppers ‐ she said it was delicious. Tracey tried the Mozzarella and Chilli Fries which were also lovely with just the right amount of kick. Our food was served in smart serving dishes with our pizzas on platters with individual pizza cutters ‐ not a takeaway box in sight. We ordered wine to go with our food which was served to our table. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food and I think the smell probably made the other customers quite jealous! This really was the perfect combination of bar and restaurant food. After dinner we were able to relax on the sofas in Chandlers and enjoy the rest of our evening. As it was my birthday I treated myself to a Screaming Banana Banshee made from dairy free ice cream, vodka, banana liqueur and fresh banana ‐ Chandlers is the only place I have seen this huge range of vegan frozen cocktails. I was also able to enjoy a coffee with Baileys Almande before I went home. Follow Chandlers on Facebook to keep track of the events they host including Craft Fairs, Geek Night Quiz every Wednesday, Stripped Open Mic Night on the first Monday of each month and 'Verse Aid Kit' Poetry Open Mic night on the last Thursday of each month. They are also proud to hold charity events such as their Chilli Cook‐off. You can even book private cocktail making lessons on Fridays and Saturdays for small groups and parties. The bar is also available for private hire. Pizza Pi Restaurant is also available for private hire for parties and events and entertainment can also be arranged. They have a fabulous courtyard where you can eat al fresco in style. They also offer a buffet menu and mobile catering. Pizza Pi ‐ 11 Beetwell Street Chesterfield S40 1SH.

Janet’s animal stories

I recently met local resident Janet Wilkinson. Janet had told me that she has been writing children’s stories ever since her own daughter Samantha was 9 years old back in 1988. She has long dreamed of publishing her stories as a children’s book and even had a story published in the popular ‘Twinkle’ magazine years ago. Her late husband Stephen added lovely illustrations to much of Janets writing including the ones shown here. Since losing her husband to illness Janet’s stories have again been playing on her mind and she has started to wonder how to get them out to more children. She has even started putting pen to paper recently to write some comedy poetry. Janet has kindly agreed to let me share one of her favourite animal stories for children with you ‐ I hope you enjoy reading it with your children. Feel free to pass on your thoughts via my email: trudyfordesign@gmail.com.

Foggarty Sees Clearly “Oh! Foggarty, will you never learn” said Daddy Owl, as he gently pulled a tiny bundle of fluffy feathers from the middle of a blackberry bush. It was the third time in a week that the little bird had fallen into this particular bush. “He was only trying to land” said Mummy Owl as she took the spluttering bundle from Daddy and began to smooth down his bedraggled feathers. Foggarty, the youngest of the Owl family, was always getting himself into trouble and having to be rescued by Daddy. He showed no sign of becoming a wise owl like his grandfather. Even his two brothers, who were sitting one on a log and the other on a pile of stones watching Foggarty’s latest escapade, had mastered the art of flying and landing without any problems. They now flew up to the branch where Daddy had perched himself. “Next week”, said Daddy, “you will all be starting school. I hope you will take care of Foggarty though and try to stop him getting into too many scrapes.” “We will, Daddy”, promised the two brothers. Of course owls have to go to night school, along with all the other little creatures who sleep during the day. So the following Monday evening Mummy took the three youngsters to their new school. She gave them all an extra big hug before sending them in to meet their new teacher, reminding Foggarty’s brothers of their promise to take care of him. Miss Badger welcomed her new pupils and soon had them settled among the rest of the class. Foggarty’s brothers got on very well and were soon able to read and write, but Foggarty, although he tried very hard, seemed to find the work difficult and struggled to keep up with his classmates. He kept bumping into things and was always falling over. Miss Badger decided that something must be done to help Foggarty so she watched him closely for a whole week. On Friday she called Foggarty to her desk. She asked him to read the words on some cards she held up. The cards had really big writing on them. When she had finished she wrote something on a piece of paper and gave it to Foggarty, saying “give this note to your mother when you get home”. When Foggarty gave his mother the teachers note she opened it and read the words ‘FOGGARTY NEEDS GLASSES’. “Ah”, she said as she passed the note to Daddy. “So that’s the problem”, said Daddy when he read the note. “I’ll take him to the optician tomorrow”. 16

The next evening Daddy took Foggarty to see Mr Eye‐Eye, the optician. Mr Eye‐Eye looked into Foggarty’s eyes with a special torch and then asked him to read some letters on a big board. The letters at the top of the board were very big but the letters at the bottom of the board were tiny. Then he put some funny looking spectacles on Foggarty. He could put different lenses into the spectacles to find out which were best for Foggarty. When Foggarty could read all of the letters on the board Mr Eye‐Eye wrote down the number of the lens and took the frames off Foggarty’s nose. Then Foggarty and Daddy went into another room to choose the best frames for his new glasses. There were lots to choose from, all colours and sizes. After trying on lots of them Foggarty decided upon a large, round brown pair which suited him very well and made him look distinguished. Mr Eye‐Eye said that Foggarty’s spectacles would be ready the following week. The whole family went along to collect the new spectacles. They all crowded into Mr Eye‐Eye’s small shop to watch as he made sure that Foggarty’s new spectacles fitted comfortably. Everyone agreed that they suited him very well and Foggarty felt rather grand in them. Now that he could see clearly, Foggarty had no more trouble with flying or landing. He soon caught up with the other pupils at school and Mummy and Daddy were very proud of him when he came top of the class that year. Later, when he grew up, Foggarty left school and went to university. He became a very famous professor. When anyone had a problem they could not solve the would be told “go and see Foggarty, he will know what to do for he is a very Wise Owl indeed”. Story by Janet Wilkinson, illustrations by Stephen Wilkinson.

Andrew Marples

Prominent local musician Article written by Penny Fairs

The name of Hasland resident, Andrew Marples, will be well known to many people in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire for his contribution to the promotion, presentation and performance of music and choral singing in the local area. Born in Loundsley Green, Andrew has lived in Hasland for over 20 years and became interested in music as a boy, joining the choir at Chesterfield Parish Church under the direction of Michael Baker, who encouraged him to take up the piano. Andrew made an unusual choice in also learning the euphonium, but quickly decided that this was not really his forte, although it did have the advantage of doubling as a seat when these were in short supply. Having decided that the piano was a far more suitable proposition, Andrew continued with his love of music during his time studying for a degree at Reading University, where he took up the organ as his second instrument and also made his debut, both as an accompanist and as a conductor. Andrew’s musical strengths lie not only in his appreciation of a wide musical variety and repertoire which ranges from mediaeval and classical music to modern musicals, but also through his involvement in the promotion of music in the local area. He is currently the Musical Director of four local choirs, all of whom perform a range of music in a variety of styles. Andrew directs and sings in Musicwork Vocal Ensemble, a specialised choir of a capella (unaccompanied) singers who were founded in 1996. They not only have a following in the local area, but have also promoted Chesterfield through their music, having performed in its twin towns, Darmstadt and Troyes on several occasions. Andrew has been the Musical Director of Chesterfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society since 1999 and during that time they have presented Gilbert and Sullivan stage productions with orchestral accompaniment at the Pomegranate Theatre and at the annual G and S Festival which was held in Buxton before its move to Harrogate. The Society has also performed concerts and productions in local venues, including Hasland Village Hall, many times, and in March performed there to a packed house where their programme included music ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan to excerpts from Miss Saigon, The King and I and The Greatest Showman. This year they will be performing their 19th stage show under Andrew’s direction, when they stage excerpts from The Pirates of Penzance and Ruddigore at Ashover Parish Hall and Chesterfield’s Rose Theatre in early October. Another highlight of the G and S Society’s year is their carol concert at Christmas which they have performed at the Crooked Spire over several years to capacity audiences. This year it takes place on Wednesday 12th December, with guest artistes, Darley Dale Band. Baslow Choir and Holymoorside Choral Society have also benefited from Andrew’s leadership and expertise as their Musical Director and both groups give regular performances at venues in Chesterfield and Sheffield. Andrew’s latest venture is the vocal trio, Cantiamo, founded in 2018, which he directs and accompanies on piano. A highlight for each of Andrew’s choirs was the concert he organised in Chesterfield Parish Church to celebrate his 50th birthday, which was an unforgettable experience for all who took part. All four of his choirs featured separately performing selections from their own repertoires then, as a finale, joined together for a 18

performance of Hubert Parry’s anthem ‘I was Glad’. A surprise piano solo by Andrew of Chopin’s Raindrop prelude was also particularly well received and the whole evening made for a memorable concert both for the performers and their audience. Local residents will also have taken the opportunity to rest from Saturday shopping by taking advantage of the free concerts, which were started by Andrew in 1991. These take place at regular intervals throughout the year in Chesterfield Library and Elder Yard Unitarian Chapel and feature a wide variety of local performers. These range from instrumental groups and soloists to musical and vocal ensembles, all of whom perform a variety of music for all tastes. Recent concerts have featured performances from young double bass players, a local orchestral ensemble and virtuoso pianist Chris Flint, who is also the accompanist for two of Andrew’s choirs. The next series of Library and Elder Yard concerts start in September, when Chesterfield Symphony Orchestra will be among the featured artistes in the 2019 Autumn programme. Andrew has been a true ambassador for the performance and promotion of music in the North Derbyshire area over many years and all those connected with him have benefited from his enthusiasm, professionalism and by him making involvement in music such fun.

A LOT CAN CHANGE IN 30 YEARS! Polar Windows have recently reached an amazing 30‐year milestone. Managing Director Alan Crowe reflects on those years… 1989 was the year Polar Windows opened its doors for business and it turns out those doors were quite unusual, as Polar started from very humble beginnings! An industrial unit at Boughton Camp, Ollerton was to be Polar Windows HQ. Located inside was a rather ‘multifunctional’ office space…no large desk and comfy chair but rather two wheels and a tow bar. In the early days Alan’s caravan served its purpose in more ways than one, doubling as the Polar office and the family holiday home. Often disappearing in the last week of July to the first week in August for a more scenic position on the coast.

• Glass Reinforced Plastic

(GRP) – Using GRP allows a structurally tested, lighter alternative to aluminium and timber so NO risk of sweating, condensation, cold bridging unlike aluminium and NO risk of wood worm, moisture absorption or potential rotting such as timber. • Higher efficiency – The Leka Warm roof has an industry leading U‐Value of 0.15 making the Leka Warm Roof virtually unbeatable in its market.

Polar Windows have come a long way from that modest caravan. Now situated on Calow Lane Industrial Estate, Hasland, Chesterfield, they are the areas only manufacturer and installer of windows, conservatories and doors. Grown from a small family business to an ever‐evolving company employing 30 staff, 7 fully‐skilled fitting teams and a reliable portfolio of carefully selected quality tradesmen (and an office with a desk and a comfy chair)

The last 30 years have provided Polar with a wealth of experience from varying product styles and design trends, developments in energy efficiency and product evolution. Always keeping at the forefront of innovation and technology is a key part of their success and growth. One product that is leading the way for innovation is the Leka Systems ‐ Tiled Conservatory Roof for which Polar Windows are the only approved installer in Chesterfield. Adding a tiled roof to an existing or new conservatory enables that space to be enjoyed all year round, keeping it warm in winter and cool in summer. The Leka system also boasts other benefits such as: • Fast installation – Can usually be fitted within 2/3 days causing less disruption to your home. • JHA approved – The Leka system is so good it’s been approved by the building inspector licenced by the government. • Lightweight – An average Leka Warm Roof weigh within 30‐40kg of a traditional glass conservatory roof which allows (in most cases) your existing conservatory frames to take the weight of your new Leka Warm Roof. 20

Polar Windows also provide a 10‐year guarantee as standard on all PVCu double and triple glazed windows, as well as doors and conservatories. You can be sure you are getting value for money and peace of mind, along with the latest in window, door and conservatory technology and designs for your home.

Dementia Friends Gala Networking The project to make Hasland ‘Dementia Friendly’ moved forward at the Hasland Gala in June when four organisations came together to explain and promote the goal. The Inspire Health Patient Participation Group (voluntary representatives of the patients) attended to describe to interested parties how they’re helping the 3 Inspire Health practices to become dementia friendly. The goal is that this will be achieved by the end of this year. A specialist worker from The Alzheimers Society came along to talk about the project and provided lots of valuable literature. Anne from Lloyds Pharmacy and the Pharmacy manager brought along a display and explained how the local pharmacy will help people with healthy living and dementia problems. Several team members from Hasland Resource Centre on Heather Vale Road also attended to explain the wide range of centre and community based services that they offer to older people and people with dementia. The event gave the four groups a great chance to meet each other and discuss how they can work together in the future to help deliver better care for families living with dementia. The problem for many such families is how to find the particular support they need at any given time. Dementia is a progressive condition so needs are constantly changing. All four organisations are committed to changing the system so that Hasland families will be able find support much more easily. Dr Anne Marie Spooner from Hasland Medical Centre gave up precious family time to attend and support the project. She was especially pleased to hear that the plan for a specialist dementia support worker in Hasland is nearing fulfilment. This worker will be available to families from September and will work from the Hasland Hub on a Wednesday morning. Anyone can request a half hour appointment to discuss any issues they are facing. Members of the Inspire Health Practice teams will be able to organise an appointment for you and this specialist worker will liaise with the care coordinator and clinicians in the Practices to ensure social, medical and mental healthcare are all working together to support families. 'Caz cakes' of Hasland kindly baked and donated lots of cup cakes for the gala stall with the Alzheimers ‘forgetmenot’ logo as icing. These proved especially popular with the children. Carol of Caz Cakes has previously attended a dementia friends educational session in Hasland and decided that the business would like to contribute to the dementia friendly initiative [thank you Carol!]. A short video of the gala stall is being prepared and will be shown on the screens in the Inspire Health surgeries and will also be available on the PPG pages within the Inspire Health web site. A number of people signed up on the day to join the 3 initiatives. 13 people wanted to join the PPG, 15 people wanted to come to a dementia friends education session and 11 people wanted to help Hasland become a dementia friendly community. This is a fantastic result. Here’s how the initiatives work: Joining the Inspire Health Patient Participation Groups The PPG’s from each practice are to meet shortly to discuss how to work more closely together. Their principal priority for this year is to make the 3 Practices Dementia Friendly but there is much other interesting work going on in trying to deliver high quality care. The core group of the PPG consists of members who attend the meetings every 2 months and commit to pushing projects forward. The gala demonstrated that there were many other people who would be interested in joining a ‘virtual’ PPG. They would be interested in receiving regular updates on what is happening in the Practices and be able to contribute thoughts which the PPG could take forward on their behalf to the Practice team.

If you are interested in joining the PPG then please email inspirehealth.ppg@nhs.net stating your preferred method of contact. You could also let the Practice know of your interest by contacting them directly if you do not have email. Dementia Friendly education sessions These are free 1 hour sessions provided by the Alzheimers Society and PPGs that aim to educate us all about dementia and make us all better able to cope with the issues created by dementia. The feedback from these sessions is always excellent with people saying how much it has changed their attitudes towards dementia. Young people as well as the elderly and carers say they have much enjoyed and appreciated the session. A date will soon be offered to attend a venue in Hasland in the early evening. If you are interested then please leave your details at your surgery or email inspirehealth.ppg@nhs.net or and you will be contacted. Hasland as a Dementia Friendly community It is hoped that a small working group will soon form in order to develop this ideal. If you are interested then please let the team know at inspirehealth.ppg@nhs.net or leave your details at the surgery. I’m proud to be a virtual member of the Inspire Health PPG and plan to attend a Dementia Friendly training session ‐ I will continue to update readers on the progress of the project in the magazine. I am also helping to compile a list of ‘Dementia Friendly’ local businesses who have supported the project or attended the training ‐ Trudy, Hasland Magazine.

Why do I need a Will?

A Will is an important legal document that allows you to specify what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. Within your Will you can also name guardians for your children, make specific gifts to charities, provide for any friends or relatives who would not otherwise benefit and even outline any funeral arrangements/wishes. What could happen if I do not leave a Will? Unfortunately without a Will, the “Intestacy Rules” determine what happens to your estate when you die. These strict government rules determine which of your relatives receives what, which can lead to some nasty surprises. For example, if you remarry you may find that your children from your first marriage will not inherit any of your estate. Step‐children do not inherit your estate under the Intestacy Rules. Ultimately the courts will decide who will look after any young children if you have not appointed guardians in your Will. Why should I and my spouse / partner make a Will? Unmarried couples do not have any rights under the Intestacy Rules – there is no such thing as “a common‐law wife/husband”. It is vital that unmarried couples make Wills so that they can provide for each other. Many married couples want to make ‘Mirror Wills’ which leaves everything to the surviving spouse and then to their children after the surviving spouse has passed away. Increasingly we see married couples making “Property Trust Wills” so as to ensure that a share of the family home can be passed onto their children. Why should I use a solicitor to make my Will? We like to compare DIY Wills with DIY Dentistry, you can do it yourself but it’s not advisable! Legal professionals have the necessary experience and knowledge to ensure that you not only have the right type of Will to suit your circumstances but that a legally valid Will is written, witnessed and signed. Wills can sometimes be complex and a trained legal professional can provide advice on things like inheritance tax, or discuss whether Will Trusts maybe required to protect vulnerable beneficiaries. A Will can be challenged after your death if there is doubt about the circumstances in which your Will was made. Two common examples of this are; 1) if you made your Will under pressure from someone else, or 2) whether you had sufficient mental capacity at the time the Will was made. Legal professionals ensure that such doubts are removed by the use of a proper “attendance notes” that, backed by their insurance, demonstrate that

instructions are taken from a client with sufficient mental capacity and under no pressure from anyone else. Unregulated and “DIY” Wills may not be able to withstand challenges about how the Will was made, as well as those made by a solicitor. What if I marry or get divorced or remarry? If you get married then your current Will is cancelled unless it contains special wording which is used where a couple intend to marry each other. For couples starting the divorce process, we advise that they amend their Will straight away because should anything happen before the divorce is finalised your “ex” may still inherit under the existing Will. When By Sarah Nadin, your divorce completes your former spouse cannot Head of Wills & Probate benefit under your existing Will. How often should I review my will? If you’ve taken the time to write one then it’s equally important to take the time to ensure that it is kept up‐to‐date. We recommend that you review your Will at least every 5 years to make sure that it is still valid and reflects your wishes. Of course if your circumstances change in the meantime (marriage, arrival of children, a change to your financial circumstances etc) then you should make sure that your Will is still up to date. Is it expensive to have a solicitor draft my will? Costs will vary depending upon the type of Will you need. Beware of hidden costs such as storage fees (we offer free lifetime storage) and registration costs (our prices include registration with a national database). Before instructing a company to prepare your Will we recommend you ask a few questions:‐ • are they solicitors? (many will‐writing companies are not regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and may not have insurance) • were they recommended to you by someone you trust? (we see many clients who have spent thousands of pounds with unregulated will writers after they received a leaflet through the door or signed up in a shopping centre – they have usually been sold an expensive inappropriate product) • what is included in the price? (a reputable business will confirm all costs in writing). Call us today on 01246 560 560 or visit Bannerjones.co.uk. 24 Glumangate, Chesterfield S40 1UA.

Hasland Theatre Company Review


Hasland Theatre Company’s production of Macbeth took place from the 3rd ‐ 8th June. I went along on the second night with my daughter who is studying the play for GCSE. We were treated to an amazing atmospheric evening and a play acted brilliantly by the group. The story was clear to follow even for those not proficient in Shakesperian English ‐ myself included. This modernised version of the classic was a great idea as a way to present the play to a mixed audience. The cast were dressed in suits or police armour and the characters received ‘news updates’ via video link from the battlefield. Birnam Woods was represented by 3 steel ladders which were used throughout the play both as watch towers and resting places during dialogue. The evening opened with the ‘Weird Sisters’ appearing down the aisle in the darkened theatre. Leila Hunt, Rachel Schofield and Carol Cooper gave their all as the insane trio of witches. Their body language and facial expressions all added to the dramatic effect. The cauldron scenes were also suitably eerie. Macbeth was played excellently by the talented Steve Cowley. His performance became stronger and stronger as MacBeth’s list of murders and insanity grew. I also enjoyed John Fox as Banquo, his intense appearances after his death were truly chilling. Nicky Beards was fantastic as the cold and calculated Lady MacBeth who shows her guilt only in her disturbed sleepwalks. Matt Green put in a great performance first as King Duncan and then as MacDuff. The fight scene between MacDuff and MacBeth was simply amazing and had the whole audience on edge as it was so realistic. Well done also to young performers Thomas Brassington as Fleance and Jack Owens as MacDuff Junior. Neil Beards added a comedic element with his role as Porter / Seyton. All of the 22 strong cast including Rob Peach as Malcolm, Tristan Weston as Serjeant, Jonathan Holloway as Donalbain, Georgia Thomas as Lennox and John Belli as both Angus and a hired murderer played their roles very well. The whole group should be proud of this performance which marks the end of their 72nd season. The light and sound team created a sinister atmosphere with spotlights and dramatic scene change music ‐ also with a modern twist. Director Heather Davies did a brilliant job and added a definite unique touch to the play. I totally agree with her thoughts from her introduction in the theatre programme ‘The play is essentially about political and social instability and an insatiable greed for power...Shakespeare could well have been writing for 2019.’ Next show: Under Milk Wood 16-21st September. All seats £8.50 each. Tel: 01246 272271. Visit: haslandtheatrecompany.co.uk

Some common timber window questions answered... Timber windows ARE energy efficient

Timber windows will NOT rot quickly!

Wooden windows ARE DOUBLE GLAZED!

Energy efficiency is mainly down to the glazing specification not the framework.

Wooden windows and doors can last decades when properly maintained, longer than PVC-U in fact.

Our real wood windows are double glazed as standard. Triple glazing is also available.

Hasland Playgroup through the years I recently met up with Josie Allen to chat about her memories of her long career with Hasland Playgroup ‐ formerly Hasland Playschool. It seems most of the population of Hasland went along to the group at some point. She has 100s of photographs from her career alongside her close friend Pat Littlewood who sadly passed away in 2017. Josie joined the playgroup staff in September 1973 when it was held at St Pauls Church Hall, which stood opposite the current Hasland Infant School. The group had been running a little while already after being set up by Pat in 1971. Pat was previously a nanny and loved children so had decided that Hasland should have its own Playschool. The group subsequently moved to the College of Art premises which at the time stood on the grounds of Penmore House ‐ I had no idea there was an art college there! The group were forced to move location several times over the years including coming close to closure in 1977 when they could no longer meet at the college premises. The parents and staff staged a protest march that year which was covered by all the local newspapers. Councillor David Allen played a big part in helping the group to eventually find new premises at the Methodist School Rooms which used to stand at the back of the Co‐op store on Hasland shops. They would stay there until 1987. They had to carry their equipment up 2 flights of stairs before and after every playgroup session before eventually a garage was built for their equipment. Playgroup was a much loved facility in the village and it was accessible to everyone. When the group first started a 3 hour session with a bottle of milk and biscuits cost parents just 2 shillings ‐ about 20p! Eventually the playgroup provided 5 sessions per week with up to 24 children per session. It was a real labour of love for the staff who worked there. Once the rent was paid and equipment was bought there was very little left. They didn’t receive any funding grants and worked really hard for their modest wages. Most of the team had other jobs too to tide them over. Anne & Brian Beeton used to own the newsagents on Hasland shops and kindly supplied the Playgroup with calendar stubs every year for the children to make calendars for their parents. Due to this connection supplies of paper were often donated by the Derbyshire Times too. Children had a great time singing songs such as finger rhymes, Tommy Thumb, Miss Polly and Incy Wincy Spider. Favourite dances included Mulberry Bush, See Saw Marjory Daw and the Hokey Cokey! Pat & Josie were both members of the Hasland Carnival Committee along with Dorothy and Duncan Morris. This led to the Playgroup entering fabulous floats into the gala every year. The floats were mainly assembled at their homes on Norwood Avenue on the Friday night before 30

the gala. Josie told me that if it rained they would end up in a real mess! During the parades the children would sit on the lorry on a plank of wood ‐ things would probably be quite different these days due to health and safety. The floats were usually kindly made by Malc Littlewood and Keith Allen. It was really difficult to attach the decorative panels to the sides of the lorries but eventually Keith and Malcolm assembled custom made side panels so that the artwork could be hooked on. Parents and children alike all loved getting involved and the Playgroup won first prize numerous times. Josie recalled one particular year when the yellow tower on the ‘Rock around the clock’ float fell off the lorry onto Ian Green's car on Calow Lane ‐ luckily Ian was a playgroup Dad and the Playgroup were fully insured! The ‘Off to Bed’ float in 1986 was decorated with curtains which were all kindly supplied by David Nieper’s as a playgroup child had a relative who worked there. Christmas parties were held every year with a visit from Santa Claus. Numerous ‘assistants’ helped out Santa including the local Hasland Scout Leader at the time ‐ Jack Wagstaff. Craft supplies were always sourced as cheaply as possible. The team would spend hours cutting out flowers from catalogues to make Mother’s Day

cards by sticking them to a picture of a vase. They would also cut out pictures of toys from catalogues to make Christmas Tree cards with extra decorations from the cotton wool department at Robinsons. Home made Play‐do was another favourite, cheap to make and safe for the children to play with. Josie has even kept the recipe that they used. When Pat announced her retirement in 1999 Josie decided it was time for her to retire too. Pat had been running the playgroup for 29 years and Josie had been there for 27 years. Their friend and colleague Sandra Parker retired with them. The trio are pictured at their retirement party. Josie received many cards and thank you’s from children and parents. The playgroup was taken over by a younger generation and eventually the whole group moved to Grassmoor.

Spital Cemetery News CELEBRATING CHESTERFIELD’S HERITAGE. Heritage Open Days from 13th ‐ 22nd September across the town with special linked events on Saturday 21st September. Heritage Open Days is a nationwide celebration of heritage. This year the national organisers are popping the corks for their 25th anniversary, with plenty of opportunities for local organisers and visitors to get involved. The theme for this year ‐ ‘People Power’ is in recognition of the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre; a recognition of the myriad ways that people have changed the world, from marches and sit‐ins to peaceful protests and rebel songs. Here in Spital Cemetery we will have walks and an exhibition at St Leonard’s Centre when we will be celebrating people buried in the cemetery who championed the people and gave them power through offering them knowledge through books, education and opportunities to unite. Mary Swanwick, three generations of the Eastwood family, Thomas Carrington, Arthur Slack and others who founded the Ragged School, all through vision and hard work brought educational opportunity to ordinary people and the possibilities that knowledge brought. The first two librarians believed unequivocally in the power of knowledge and toiled to build up Chesterfield's first free public library which opened in the new Stephenson Memorial Hall in 1879. Both are buried in unmarked graves. Side by side from beginning their working lives down the pit at the age of 10 to their final resting place in the cemetery, Haslam and Harvey gave a voice, strength and power to miners through bringing them together in the Derbyshire Miners’ Association. Look on the Heritage Open Days website for all the details, but do put 21st September in your diary, SAVE THE DATE/PEOPLE POWER. Go to www.heritageopendays.org.uk/about Search Events in the Visit section and put in the postcode S41 0DZ and 1 mile distance and you will be directed to us and other linked events on that day. We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition at St Leonard’s Centre and on the Champions of the People tour. 32

Wheelgate is a great park for young children and my family have been many times over the last few years. My youngest daughter Rowen decided that she would like to hold her 8th birthday day out at the park with a birthday party lunch. We booked in for 7 children. The girls had a fantastic time. There was a good choice of party lunch options and a special party table was set beautifully for them. Rowen was even given a gift bag from the park full of good quality items including a lamb plush toy, childrens binoculars and a set of pencils. Each child also received their choice of ice cream after lunch. The staff bought out the birthday cake I had supplied so that Rowen’s friends could sing happy birthday to her. All of this plus a full day in the park for just £17.49 per child. Toddlers up to 108cm are £11 and under 95cm are £4.50. It was a bright sunny day so the children made use of all the park facilities including the brilliant splash zone where they had a fabulous time. There are lots of water slides as well as a huge paddling pool with sprays and tipping buckets. Perfect for a hot day. The children had a ball running around the rides which are all ideal for their age. They all loved the large inflatable trampoline, the outdoor giant slide and the carousel. They cooled off indoors after lunch in the huge Alien Galaxy Zone with the ‘Master Blaster’ zone with huge ball cannons to fire. They all loved the mirror maze too and screamed away on the Luna Launch Tower. After some more outdoor fun in the model village they explored the Land of the Pharoahs Zone with it’s enormous jungle gym and slides.

A great choice for a children’s day out or birthday party.
