Welcome to Hasland Magazine

Wow, what a year! This time last year my family and I along with our team of fabulous helpers were delivering the first ever Hasland Magazine. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for me but I’m so glad I launched this project ‐ I’ve learned so much about our area.

Would you like to advertise in the next issue?

There is a huge range of entertainment on offer nearby at the moment so I decided to feature a local theatre special. I’ve been lucky enough to chat to John Challis, aka ‘Boycie’ about his amazing career as well as reviewing another fantastic show at Hasland Playhouse. We also have panto news and theatre competitions on offer. The sense of community we have in Hasland is amazing. The ‘Dementia Friendly’ project is really taking flight and our local businesses are so supportive of charity events that are happening nearby, including Harold Lilleker and Sons supporting the ‘Men‐Talk’ project by creating the huge banner on display in the Village with a little help from LGS Design. Welcome this month to new guest columnist Scott Antcliffe who has written a great article about Lumsdale Falls and contributed some fantastic photographs as well as writing a fitness column for us ‐ hopefully the first of a series. Great to have you on board Scott. Thanks to Christine Roe too for the beautiful cover shot taken near Churchside. Christine is the talented photographer behind the Hasland Christmas cards which are now on sale. It’s great to have input and stories from other people. If you have any news to share or charity events to promote please get in touch! I loved talking to Margaret Hartshorn about the books she has written about Hasland, they are both great achievements. It was also lovely to hear about a young local dancer, Eleanor Davis who is having some amazing success in her dancing career. Once again I’d like to say a big thank you to all the companies who advertise in the magazine. Please let them know if you’ve seen their ads. Remember they are the ones that make the magazine possible.

This magazine is delivered bimonthly to 4200 homes and businesses in Hasland, Winsick, Corbriggs, Herriott Drive estate, lower Hady and parts of Spital as well as cafés, bars and waiting rooms in the town centre and beyond.

Tackle tiredness and boost your energy Scott Antcliffe is a qualified personal trainer with a degree in Nutrition, Health and Lifestyles. He has swapped the NHS for a career in teaching, but is still passionate about nutrition and health and passing his knowledge onto others.

In a world dominated by technology and the need for a high‐rolling lifestyle, people are working longer and harder than they ever have been before. Many cases of tiredness are due to stress, not enough sleep, poor diet and other lifestyle factors. There are many simple changes that we can make to our lifestyles that will make a huge difference over time. Unexplained tiredness is one of the most common reasons for people to see their GP. Fatigue is a feeling of prolonged, extreme tiredness. Whilst there is a difference between mental and physical fatigue, they often occur together. Fatigue is most common in people who are defined as middle aged (45‐65 years old) with research suggesting that this age range has the least amount of sleep too, which certainly doesn’t help things. Whilst feeling tired and lethargic is a general symptom of fatigue, there are many others, which include; headache, dizziness, lack of concentration and motivation, aching muscles and feeling irritable. A good first point of call is visiting your GP to rule out a medical condition which may be associated with fatigue such as heart disease, diabetes and sleep apnoea. Below are some main areas to focus on which can help to reduce the effects of tiredness and fatigue, whilst boosting energy.

Nutrition Adequate nutrition is essential to a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle and can boost energy levels. The old saying of ‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is really true. Breakfast literally means ‘break the fast’ and it’s your bodies’ first opportunity to fuel itself for the day and to take in vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help repair and energise your body. A breakfast of rolled oats with banana and blueberries will provide you with a slow release of energy and essential vitamins and minerals that can stimulate the process of energy production. Other energy boosting foods include; fruit and vegetables, hummus, chick peas and brown rice. Feeling fatigued could also be due to an iron deficiency, which is common amongst the female population or people who adopt a vegetarian diet. Iron rich foods include; chicken, turkey, beans, lentils, quinoa and green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale.

Sleep Sleep is undoubtedly the most important contributing factor to our energy levels but, in many cases, it is something that is often neglected during a busy lifestyle. Getting long‐lasting, good quality sleep (7‐9 hours per night) is essentially for our body to repair, maintain energy levels, build muscle and grow. 4

Try to avoid bright lights from laptops, tablets, mobiles before bed as the light restricts the release of melatonin, which is the hormone that makes us feel sleepy. Try reading instead as this can clear your mind and relieve stress. Setting a regular time for sleep and waking up will help to create a routine for yourself. Try to avoid heavy meals, alcohol, caffeine and chocolate late at night as they can disrupt sleep.

Exercise When feeling exhausted, one way to tackle this is to do more exercise, yes, it is ironic! Exercise has been found to decrease fatigue, increase physical help and improve our resilience to stress. Whilst it may feel difficult at first, the more exercise you do, the more energetic you will feel. This is because your body creates more mitochondria which are the ‘powerhouses’ of your cells and produce energy more efficiently. Exercise also produce endorphins which are the ‘feel good’ hormones that help to create a ‘buzz’ feeling within the body. As a consequence, they help you to feel better about yourself and exercise more regularly. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise per day, five days a week. Set small manageable goals for exercise and reward yourself when reaching them to help aid motivation. Pay attention to how your body and mind react to exercise. How did it affect your sleep? Did it make you feel better the next day?

The Hasland Hotel Bar reopened on Thursday 18th July 2019. The new managers are Paul & Lisa Sleeman who, after being loyal customers for a number of years, were so disappointed when the bar closed that they presented a business idea to the owners and to their bank! Once they gained approval they set about getting it reopened as soon as possible. If you want a relaxing drink in a welcoming atmosphere then it’s the place for you. It is full of lovely people who join together over a few drinks to catch up and enjoy themselves. The Hasland Hotel Bar offers a good selection of ales, beer, wine and spirits. As a free house they are able to use a wide variety of local breweries for ales. There’s no budget at the moment for a fancy makeover but some minor changes have taken place so why not pop along and see for yourselves. 2 Meakin Street, Hasland S41 0AU Hasland Hotel Bar Open Mon‐Thurs 5pm‐11pm, Friday 5pm‐1am, Sat 5pm‐midnight, Sun 12noon‐10.30pm 8

Dirty Stop Out in 1 990s Chesterfield? The era defined by venues like the Bradbury Club and Xanadu is set to be immortalized in a forthcoming book and the author needs your memories and photos to make it happen. The ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1990s Chesterfield’ is set to be published in November and Neil Anderson – who penned the best‐selling 1970s and 1980s versions as well as working with Pete Dodd on the 1960s version – is eager to hear from readers that remember the era.

Jack Daniels Trio celebrate winning Derbyshire Times Band of the Year competition.

CFC fans celebrate the team’s FA Cup run

The 1990s saw Chesterfield FC’s legendary FA Cup run and bands spanning the Tuscany Fruit Bats to Lord Skamen winning the Derbyshire Time’s popular Band of the Year event at the Winding Wheel. Neil Anderson said: "The nightscene was very strong in the 1990s in Chesterfield. The success of the sprawling Bradbury Club transformed the afterdark scene of Brampton in the era whilst the likes of Xanadu and Zanzibar made the whole area a magnet for the Celebrating Lord Skaman’s Derbyshire surrounding region." Times Band of the Year success The book is set to follow the success of three previous ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guides’ to Chesterfield. The book is set to be launched at a 1990s reunion party that is being organised at Real Time Live on Friday, December 13th. Neil can be contacted on: neil@dirtystopouts.com.

Find your perfect escape Local travel agent Samantha Mann of Hays Travel has all the knowledge you need to find your perfect getaway.

Light summer evenings are over, leaves are falling from the trees and the dark wintery nights are rolling in. Most people are willing for summer to return and planning their holidays for the next year… but the sun is always shining somewhere in the world and you don’t have to wait months to start topping up the tan. With average highs of 21 degrees in December, the Canary Islands have glorious sunny weather the whole year round and offer the perfect place to get your daily dose of vitamin D during the colder months. Whether you’re seeking adventure at Europe’s largest water park or relaxing on one of the many beaches, these islands cater for everyone. If you’re a lover of long‐haul destinations, January and February is the perfect time to visit the Caribbean islands. Mexico and the Dominican Republic are a popular choice for both couples and families alike with hotels offering everything you can imagine, especially if you’re looking for a touch of luxury. With options to stay in all‐inclusive resorts where you’ll get pampered with butler service on the beach or have the chance to kayak with dolphins and manatees, the hotels here are certain to impress. If you’re not looking for winter sun, but instead want to embrace the winter woollies, there are plenty of other options that will get you out discovering the world. In December, Europe comes to life with Christmas markets galore! From Krakow to Budapest, Helsinki to Prague, there are SO many to choose from and a trip to one of these cities won’t break the bank. Not to mention in England we have some fantastic Christmas markets of our own which can be visited over a weekend and coupled with a lodge in the forest to create the perfect winter break.

Then of course there’s Lapland. Whether visiting for the day searching for Santa through the Finnish wilderness or staying for a few nights to experience the local culture, Lapland is a place that will steal your heart. But it’s not just for kids and it’s not all about Father Christmas. Experience the thrill of a dog sled ride through the forest and don’t forget to take your driving licence if you want to try your hand at driving a snow mobile over a frozen lake. Northern parts of Finland offer the chance to see the Northern Lights. It’s never guaranteed, but with tours available with local ‘aurora hunters’ you’re sure to get the best chance of seeing this natural wonder. These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg for winter getaways! With cruises, escorted tours, spa resorts and more available too, the world is your oyster. Embrace it. Discover it. Every season of the year.

Heathcote Drive to benefit from new funding The Friends of Eastwood Park have been looking to help with improvements to other outdoor green spaces in Hasland, in particular around Heathcote Drive. At their 2018 AGM they amended their constitution to enable them to do just that. The change was made to include 'other green and open public spaces' in the neighbourhood. This then allowed to group to apply to the Grassland Hasmoor Big Local fund for funding to help them to achieve this. In December 2018 they also had news of a fund which may be available from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for funding towards the creation / improvement of pocket parks (small areas in local communities). The group discussed this with Chesterfield Borough Council and the local residents and the decision was made to apply. The group were awarded the maximum funding of £11450. This combined with the £4500 received from Grassland Hasmoor, which was enough to cover the 30% match funding required, gave a total of £15000 for the new project. The Heathcote Drive project will provide naturalistic play elements and more seating, including picnic tables to the existing green space, as requested by residents. Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is also working with the project to support the planting of a wild flower meadow.

Although it was initially hoped to have facilities in place for the summer holidays, work now looks set to begin on Monday 25th September and should take about a week. The Friends are planning a 'ribbon cutting' ceremony on Saturday 19th October. The Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield are 'pencilled in' to attend this event, along with other Councillors. The date will be confirmed for definite once the work is complete. If you would like to keep up with news and find out more about the project and the opening ceremony you can follow the group on Facebook or visit their website: friendsofeastwoodpark.org.uk Thanks to Barbara Arrandale, Hon. Sec Friend of Eastwood Park for the update. Pictured above right is the new logo for Heathcote Pocket Park. The logo was designed by Simon Debell.

Summer fun in Eastwood Park!

Summer Fun in Eastwood Park was enjoyed by hundreds of youngsters and was sponsored by Grassland Hasmoor Big Local and Chesterfield Borough Council. Parks Development Officer Sarah Poulton collected snacks and refreshments from FareShare for the youngsters. Samba Sports and Extreme Wheels were commissioned by Grassland Hasmoor Big Local to deliver a variety of activities throughout the holiday. Sarah then supplemented these with Bat and Bird Box making; a fantastic National Play Day and the brilliant Beach Day, to round of a super summer. The Friends of Eastwood Park, Hasland have been in the pavilion offering hot drinks and supporting Sarah. All in all a great team effort for the community.

Margaret’s History of Hasland Did you know that local author and lifelong Hasland resident Margaret Hartshorn has written two books about Hasland?  In 2005 she published ‘Hasland Over the Years’ and in 2008 she compiled ‘Hasland at War ‐ War Memorial Inscriptions’. ‘Hasland over the years’ is a fantastic compilation of vintage photographs and maps along with chapters about different aspects of bygone Hasland life on subjects such as ’People’, ‘Buildings’, ‘Schools’, ‘Snippets from the Newspapers’ and ‘Memories’. I asked Margaret how the book came to be and why she has been so interested in Hasland History: Margaret has lived in Hasland her whole life. Her grandparents moved to Hasland in the late 19th century for work in the collieries and her father Margaret Hartshorn came for work at the Hasland Loco Shed around 1930. She lived on Hampton Street before moving to St Pauls Avenue when the houses there were first built. She has been married to her husband Graham for an impressive 57 years. Graham came from Birdholme. They have two children, Sharon and Kevin, five grandchildren and a great grandson. As well as raising her two children, Margaret worked as a bank clerk at The Halifax Building Society until her retirement. She also worked at Bolsover Colliery. She was proud to be trained on the ‘comptometer’ which involved 3 months of training in Sheffield. Margaret has had a lifelong interest in all things Hasland and history. After her retirement she began to collect local memorabilia such as old photographs. She decided to look back on her family history and started her search in the local studies section of Chesterfield Library where she found many old photographs and archives including newspapers containing information about local soldiers. She joined Chesterfield Family History Society and also found a lot of handwritten records. She became a long term member of North Wingfield Local History Group. Eventually Margaret had so many photos that it was suggested that she publish a book. She had no idea where to begin but a friend of hers had written a book about Temple Normanton and gave her the contact details for their publisher, Dick Richardson from Great Longstone. He helped Margaret through the process. It took a lot of time to collate the information and photographs that Margaret had as it wasn’t in any kind of order. As well as cataloguing her collection Hannah Hollingworth, she spoke to a lot of lifelong Hasland Mistress of Hasland Church residents to ask them about their memories Infants School

of the village. This was her favourite part of making the book. She began with some of her Mother’s cousins as she knew they had led interesting local lives. One example was Dennis Knight, who’s father had worked in the ‘pit’ and was Margaret’s Grandma’s brother. He had a horse and cart for transporting goods and whilst he was courting he went into a shop to visit his girlfriend and someone rushed in to tell him that his horse and cart had took off down the road without him! Eventually ‘Hasland over the years’ was printed and copies sold very well. Some even went out to Australia and America and the readers wrote to Margaret to say how much they enjoyed the book. She has kept the letters as she was so happy to receive them and was surprised that people so far away would be interested. Eventually she even had a small reprint of the book but there are now only a few copies left. Her second book ‘Hasland at War’ is a compilation of information about and photographs of soldiers that came from Hasland who fought in both the first and second world wars. It features chapters entitled ‘Hasland Memorial’, ‘Dad’s War’, ‘Over The Top’ and ‘Peace Celebrations’. It is a wealth of facts and details about many of those lost in the war and has even proved to be a great tool for those searching for family members that were lost. One lady managed to find her relatives war grave as a result of reading the book. There are currently no copies of this book left but Margaret hopes it will eventually be possible to make a digital version to share.

Margaret has also helped out with facts about soldiers from other areas of Chesterfield, including writing a small book about the St Augustine’s memorial where her husband’s uncle is mentioned. Margaret has seen huge changes to Hasland during her life. She told me “The village has grown to such a size that it isn’t really a village any more. There are a lot more new residents than there used to be and there isn’t much green belt left”. However she still loves Hasland and enjoys spending time with her children, grandchildren, great‐grandson and husband. You may have seen Margaret’s amazing display in the Village Hall during Hasland Gala as each year she compiles an exhibition of photographs.

Snippets from the Memories chapter:

Visitors often bring photos from their own Hasland Village Hall, Pensioner’s party (date unknown) collection for her Photograph courtesy of Harry James. to add to her display. Years ago local playgroup leader Pat Littlewood gave Margaret a lot of photos from many Hasland Gala’s and the Hasland Playgroup. Margaret has an impressive archive of images from different Hasland institutions including each of the schools, Eastwood Park, the engine sheds, the railway sheds, the old hall on Calow Lane and more! She is also still collecting! Thanks to Margaret for sharing her amazing story!

Snippets from the Memories chapter:

Ida Bates

Stella Moseley

“My Uncle Will used to hide Easter Eggs down in the orchard on Storforth Lane where they lived, and we all used to go finding them...” “... we used to have a skipping rope which reached from one side of the road to the other, and we would skip all the way up Storforth Lane.” “All our social life was to do with Sunday School. They used to have social evenings and we used to have a concert party which Vera and I were in. Mary Needham was a good pianist and she got this lovely concert party up and we used to do a concert and a panto at Christmas.... we were called the Scarlet Revellers.” “Opposite where the Co‐op is now was Norman’s which sold wheat and corn and they used to deliver at our house on Storforth Lane.”

“We loved Christmas, me Dad made Christmas. Oh he did, he was like Santa Claus me Dad. We didn’t have a lot of presents, me and our Frank and our Dot.....We hung our stockings up and we had an orange, an apple, and nuts and new pennies. “I can remember going to school and my Mum takin’ me in my pushchair. Yes, and my first school was, you know the old chapel buildings that used to be at the back of The Devonshire, my first school was there. As we went round the corner there was a blacksmith’s shop somewhere there. “We got married in forty‐two and that were a toss‐up whether we could get married or not because there were no food about and everthin’ were coupons.” “Hasland were a lovely place to grow up in. Everybody knew one another. It’ always been friendly. Oo I’m glad I didn’t go anywhere else.”

PROMOTIONAL OFFER WITH THIS ADVERT This started last January as an open grassy area in the cemetery, packed with graves but few actual gravestones. On the centenary of the beginning of WW1 Chesterfield Borough Council designated this area as a Poppy meadow. Now, 5 years later, we wanted somewhere to recognise that peace had finally arrived 100 years ago with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. We uncovered an old winding path and dug flower beds. Greggs awarded us £1000 and suddenly our dreams to get Roses and Rosemary plants, benches and plaques and entrance gateposts became a reality. Here we are thinking about life after the wars, when peace returned. We will remember the mothers/wives of service personnel buried in Spital Cemetery from WW1 and 2, who in peace bore their loss but rebuilt their lives. We will also remember the many veterans who have returned to Chesterfield and this part of Derbyshire over the years. We give our thanks to others remembered on family graves who ‘did not return’. If you would like to attend this event please arrive at 10.30am for the official opening at 11am. Meet at the bottom entrance gates to the cemetery. Refreshments will be available afterwards at the St. Leonard’s Centre. Parking is limited so use the streets, walk or arrive by public transport.

All welcome at the St. Leonard’s Centre, Valley Road, S41 0HA 16th Nov ‐ 1st Dec Christmas Tree Festival in the Crooked Spire.

What’s on - Local Theatre There is so much happening in our local theatres during the next couple of months. Chesterfield Theatres, Rose Hill Theatre and our own Hasland Playhouse offer a wealth of entertainment with something to suit everyone. In October and November alone we can look forward to visits from Ruby Wax, Ben Elton, Stewart Francis and John Challis as well as great theatre shows including Nigel Slater’s Toast. I was lucky enough to interview John Challis about his upcoming Pomegranate Theatre Show ‘Only Fools and Boycie’.

Only Fools & Boycie John Challis is appearing at the Pomegranate Theatre on Sunday 10th November. I asked John about his visit to our area and what the audience can look forward to hearing on the night. You’ve appeared in Chesterfield before ‐ I imagine you feel quite at home in the Peak District. Have you visited our famous wonky church spire? Do you have plans to visit anywhere in particular whilst you are here? One of my first theatre jobs was at the Civic in Chesterfield and last time I visited the museum I was delighted to find a special exhibit from that time. I’ve visited Chesterfield many times and I’ve even made an appearance at the Spireites ground, but I’ve never been inside the church to inspect the wonky tower! My wife and I visit the area a lot. My father was born and bred in Sheffield and until last year we went regularly to see my old Aunt Enid in Stannington, but our favourite place to stay is the Peacock at Rowsley. From there we go out on day trips to Hardwick Hall, Bolsover Castle, Chatsworth, Sutton Scarsdale and best of all Haddon Hall. Having been in Benidorm more recently than Only Fools and Horses are you now recognised any more for that role? Or still usually recognised as Boycie? Or even Trigger….. However much I try to shake him off, I’m afraid I’ll always be Boycie! John Sullivan used to say I’d created a monster and he’d got out of the cage. I’m forever grateful to Derren Litten for giving me the chance to create a different character with Monty Staines and I actually did four series of Benidorm. I married Joyce Temple‐Savage in the first episode of Series 10 and Sherrie and I were really looking forward to exploring the relationship. She’s a great comedy actress and we just clicked, so we were so disappointed when ITV cancelled the show. Imagine how awful it must be for those actors who had been part of the Beni family for ten years. People in Benidorm when we were filming always greeted me as Boycie and I think they were a bit confused when I ‘married’ Joyce! Now I’m more often than not congratulated on Benidorm and asked to say Monty’s catchphrase ‘Chips AND rice!’ Everybody I meet loves Benidorm and misses it, especially as it would be shown at the start of the year when it brought sunshine to a dreary winter. I would love it to come back. Last winter there were several rumours about ‘Benidorm ‐ the Movie’. Do you have any update on that rumour and if so will you be involved? Benidorm the Movie is something we’d all love to do but unfortunately there’s been no news of that. Derren has been busy working on a new show for the BBC called Scarborough and I think after the disappointment of losing Benidorm, he’s happy to get his teeth into something 20

different. John Sullivan always thought Derren had great potential and he even wrote an episode of Green Green Grass. I think he’s a clever writer and a natural successor to Sullivan. Are you involved in any other projects at the moment? Are you still working on renovating Wigmore Abbey? In the absence of any TV work I’m thankful for my own publishing company, an alternative career if you like. One reason for going on the road with my one man show Only Fools and Boycie is to showcase the books and sell signed copies. I have written five titles, two volumes of autobiography, two novels featuring a new character called Reggie and a big coffee table book about my house Wigmore Abbey and the creation of a garden. Our house is 800 years old and like the Forth Bridge, repairs are ongoing! Signed copies of my books can be purchased from my website: www.wigmorebooks.com. Do you think you will return to writing fiction in the future, following your ‘Reggie’ novels? Reggie‐Stag at Bay and Reggie‐In the Frame are in the style of Tom Sharpe (according to literary critic Brian Viner) and read like an episode of The Green Green Grass. Silly country tales from the area where I live in the north of Herefordshire and inspired by the people I’ve met and my experiences since moving here 21 years ago. I’m planning Reggie 3 and hopefully it will be ready next year. Then with three novels in the series I hope to write a treatment with a view to a television pilot. You’ve appeared in Doctor Who as well as narrating on the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Live Tour ‐ are you a bit of a sci fi fan? I wouldn’t say I’m a great Sci‐Fi fan but as I was in a very popular six part Dr. Who story called Seeds of Doom, playing an evil henchman called Scorby, I do have a tenuous link to the world of Whovians! I regularly turn up as a guest at Comic Cons and those who don’t know about Dr. Who wonder what the hell I’m doing there, but I get a surprising amount of fans with photos, DVD covers and paperbacks for Scorby’s signature, even now. I enjoyed narrating for the stage show of HGTTG but I have never pretended to understand what it’s all about. Can the audience expect any surprising stories and revelations about your Only Fools and Horses Days? I’ve been in the business now for over 55 years so there are a lot of anecdotes and a few surprising revelations in my show. Most people will only know me as Boycie so it always comes as a surprise when they find out I’ve been in most TV shows through the years! Z Cars, The Sweeney, Coronation Street, Citizen Smith, Open All Hours, Dr.Who, Noel Edmond’s Houseparty, Roland Rat, Sooty.... you name it! Thanks so much to John for answering my questions ‐ I look forward to the show!

‘An intimate evening with John Challis, one of the nation's greatest comedy actors.’ Mr Challis will also meet fans after the show to sign autographs and pose for pictures, while signing copies of his autobiography, Being Boycie, and novel, Reggie: A Stag At Bay. Sunday 10th November, 7.30pm. Tickets £20.90 ‐ Box Office 01246 345 222 www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk

Grab your ticket whilst you can before he heads off... INTO THE PUNSET. An internationally acclaimed stand‐up comedian, accomplished actor and writer, Francis is one multi‐talented performer. As a stand‐up, he's performed worldwide including North America, Great Britain, Europe, Asia, South Africa, and the Middle East. His comedy festivals include Montreal's Just for Laughs, Aspen Comedy Arts Festival, Edinburgh's Festival Fringe and many more.

In 2013 he released his first book of illustrations ‐ Pun Direction ‐ a compilation of jokes, cartoons and one recipe. The book is hilarious and well worth a read! I asked Stewart why he is leaving his stand up career behind. He told me: “I'm stepping away from stand up for a number of reasons, all of them good. I'm looking to do more acting, as well as more voiceover work. Also, I have a couple of kick‐ass screenplays that I'm working on. The audience can expect to see my best show ever, which as a performer, is a wonderful way to leave”. 23rd November at the Winding Wheel Theatre ‐ 8pm Tickets £24.40 ‐ Box Office 01246 345222 www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk

RUBY WAX HOW TO BE HUMAN: THE SHOW with Special Guests 17th October at The Pomegranate Theatre, 7.30pm. Tickets £24.90 ‐ Box Office 01246 345222 www.chesterfieldtheatres.co.uk

Taken from Stewart’s book ‐ Pun Direction

After a successful spring tour, a residency at London's Leicester Square Theatre and shows at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the much‐loved comedian, author and campaigner Ruby Wax will be bringing her new hit show ‘How To Be Human’ to Chesterfield this October. The show is based on her bestselling book, How to Be Human: The Manual. It will answer every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion. We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical, fingers crossed, we’ll still have our minds. Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness. Ruby welcomes special guests in the second half of the show: a monk, Gelong Thubten, who explains how the mind works, and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura who explains where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain. Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How to be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.

Hasland Theatre Company Review

Under Milk Wood

“To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible‐black….”

I was lucky enough to watch this show in September as the Hasland Players returned from their summer break to start the new season. I wasn’t sure what to expect of the stage version as I only knew it as a radio broadcast. The stage was set as a vintage radio studio. The lights were dim and the cast were seated in their places ready to begin their radio broadcast. The costumes, microphones and set detail immediately took the audience back in time and the introduction by the ‘theatre manager’ set the scene beautifully for the performance to begin and the story to unfold. Rob Dean read as the narrator, introducing us to the sleepy Welsh village of Llareggub (look it up!). His melodic voice had me enthralled throughout the evening as he first described the sleeping village in Thomas’ amazing level of detail which made it seem so visible and whisked us off to the Welsh hills. With the scene and almost eerie middle of the night atmosphere set, he began to introduce us the village folk by first of all sharing their dreams with us, filling us in on their histories in the process. He goes on to describe a village day from start to finish and told us their tales of joy, sorrow, love, longing and angst. Each of the players took on several roles as their stories were told. At times the anecdotes were laugh out load funny and at others very sad. The lives of the villagers were woven together in many intricate ways. Tom Bannister and Rachel Schofield were hilarious as the bitterly unhappily married Pugh’s. We are invited into Mr Pugh the schoolmaster’s thoughts of how to poison his domineering wife, with no real intention of doing so.

Leila Hunt was fantastic as the dreamy schoolteacher Gossamer Beynon, dreaming of illicit love and Sinbad Sailors but too scared to interact with them. Dai Bread is the bigamist village baker with two wives, one very traditional and one a mysterious gypsy played beautifully by Kay Haw. Captain Cat, the old sea captain played by Rob Peach, comments on the village goings‐on from his window. The village gossips endlessly and the poor Polly Garter (Rosemary Smith) is often the source of the gossip due to her many babies. She sings sadly of her lost true love as she goes about her day. I was amazed by the cast’s ability to switch from character to character seamlessly, each with their own style of voice and behaviour. Sadly there were so many roles played that I don’t have the space to point them all out but the whole cast came together fantastically under the expert direction of Valerie Ryan to produce the most atmospheric production I have seen for a long time. Next show: A Brief History of Women - 11-16th November. All seats £10. Tickets on sale from 22nd October. Tel: 01246 272271 or visit: haslandtheatrecompany.co.uk

Giant Star Line-Up for Christmas Panto Chesterfield Theatres have announced a giant star line‐up for their spectacular Christmas pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, at the Pomegranate Theatre from Friday 6th December 2019 to Sunday 5th January 2020. Pop legend Lee Latchford‐Evans from super‐group Steps will headline in the title role of Jack with children’s TV favourite Andrea Valls from CBeebies Waffle the Wonder Dog starring as Princess Jess. Lee joined pop phenomenon Steps in 1997 and achieved huge success with the band selling in excess of 21 million records worldwide and winning numerous awards including the prestigious BRIT award for Best Live Act in 2000. Away from the band, experienced actor Lee has also starred in musicals in London’s West End including playing Teen Angel in Grease, Niko Nikovsky in Eurobeat and touring with the stage version of All Creatures Great and Small. Lee’s feature films include Cash & Curry, The Rizen, DeadRinger and, most recently, horror comedy Paintball Massacre which completed filming in 2019. He has also starred in numerous pantomimes throughout the UK. Instantly recognisable to youngsters (and their parents) as ‘Mum’ Jess, in CBeebies heart‐warming family comedy show Waffle the Wonder Dog, Andrea has enjoyed great success with BAFTA‐nominated Waffle the Wonder Dog which first hit TV screens in Spring 2018. The critically acclaimed show, now in its third series, is broadcast in 30 countries worldwide and has been viewed by over 24 million people on BBC IPlayer alone. The programme which features the talking wonder dog Waffle, voiced by the aptly named Rufus Hound, and which focuses on the newly blended Brooklyn‐Bell family was an instant favourite with viewers and critics alike, praised for its sensitive and humorous handling of the everyday issues that affect young children, helping viewers to understand and cope with confusing emotions. Andrea will make her pantomime debut this Christmas as Princess Jess. Panto at the Pomegranate has built a reputation for bringing top class comedy to Chesterfield and this year will be no exception. With over 20 years’ experience in the entertainment industry, comedian Paul Eastwood will be providing the laughs as Jack’s dopey brother Simon Trott and is sure to have audiences of all ages eating out of the palm of his hand with his quick‐fire wit, slick delivery and engaging persona. The line‐up is completed by West End stars Simon Howe and Janine Pardo who will be bringing the house down with their powerhouse vocals and spectacular dance routines as Dame Trott and Spirit of the Beans. Actor and member of the Magic Circle, Alexander Lee, will be displaying breathtaking illusions and booable badness as the villain of the piece, Fleshcreep, assistant to the legendary Giant Blunderbore. They will be supported by a full Ensemble of professional dancers as well as local children chosen from open auditions to be held on 15th September and, of course, a traditional pantomime cow.

Crich Tramway Village Fun!

During the summer my family and I visited Crich Tramway Museum along with a friend who is a regular visitor. The attraction is currently celebrating it’s 60th birthday! The cost of the family day entry is just £40.50 for 2 adults and up to 3 children or 1 adult and up to 4 children. Incredibly this entitles you to free return visits for 12 months, excluding certain events. Once through the gate we waited at the ‘Terminus Town End’ tram stop to catch a tram into the Village. We boarded a ‘Boat’ open topped tram which the children absolutely loved. The ride takes you past ‘Victoria Park’ with’s it’s bandstand and adventure play area, then on to Wakebridge where you can alight and take a woodland walk, visit the sculpture trail and see the lead mining display, Finally the end of the line is, ‘Glory Line’ with a picturesque picnic area. This is also an ideal spot to begin a walk up to nearby Crich Stand to admire the views. Electric Tram rides along this route are unlimited throughout the day and there is also a horse tram which runs on set days at an additional cost throughout the season. We alighted back at Wakebridge where the children loved spotting the wood carved figures during the woodland walk. The lead mining display was also really interesting. After a picnic lunch we arrived at the adventure play area which kept them occupied for a good two hours with play equipment for all ages. We followed this with ice creams from the nearby shop and hot drinks for my friend and I from Rita’s Tearooms. There are lots of other attractions to visit including the Great Exhibition Hall which contains the ‘Century of Trams’ exhibition. This features numerous trams from different decades of transport, including vehicles that visitors can climb aboard. We also enjoyed the Workshop Viewing Gallery where we could see the trams being repaired and restored from a walkway above. We finished off with a quick visit to the soft play area for small children and more tea! I’d definitely recommend a family day out at the Tramway Village. Visit www.tramway.co.uk to plan your trip.

Harold Lilleker & Sons Ashgate Hospicecare

Rainbow Car Each year Ashgate Hospicecare hold their ‘Rainbow Ribbons’ campaign to raise awareness and money to support the valuable care that they offer. The unpredictable weather this year has hit them hard and forced the cancellation of three major fundraisering events ‐ their car show, open air cinema and summer fair. Drew Lilleker and the team from Harold Lilleker & Sons ‐ Jordan Green and Michael Edwards ‐ wanted to help. They also had valuable help from the junior team, Nathan Lilleker (aged 9) and Ashley Lilleker (aged 7). They decided to restore a collection of Model T Ford parts into a rolling chassis to show how a model T Ford works. Model Ts were famously made black for most of their production between 1908 ‐1927 so a rainbow car would definitely stand out. The challenge was to finish the project in under three weeks in order to attend The Chesterfield Motor Fest as this was the perfect place to raise awareness with over 38000 people attending.

This Model T rolling chassis is 100 years old this year. Luckily it has lots of places to tie ribbons. Drew told me “So far we have had hundreds of ribbons added with lots of donations so we are really pleased and thank everyone for their support.” Since the Motor Fest the Rainbow Model T has been on display in car showrooms around Chesterfield to continue to raise awareness and funds for Ashgate Hospicecare. If you would like to donate and add a ribbon please contact Harold Lilleker & Sons on 01246 277095 or visit rainbowribbons.org.uk.

Eleanor attended her dance school's summer school and enjoying dancing with some of the industry's best performers and choreographers. She also attended a weeks residential with ‘Move It Shake It’, where she was privileged to take classes with more of the industries leading dancers and choreographers. Eleanor was also lucky enough to work as a supporting actor for the day on a new film ‐ School Fight. Eleanor is a year 11 student at Hasland Hall Community School. She has been dancing for 11 years and started Musical Theatre two years ago. Eleanor has been attending Direction Theatre Arts (DTA) for 9 years, where she takes classes in all genres of dance and is a member of many senior troupes as well as being a helper with the younger dancers. She performs annually in DTA's show at the Pomegranate Theatre and has appeared in several musical theatre productions. She has also performed with DTA at Disneyland Paris and with Pasha from Strictly Come Dancing. She has also been a supporting actor in two episodes of Ackley Bridge. Eleanor started competing as a solo dancer in 2018. This Summer she moved into the senior section for the first time, where she competed against 17 and 18 year old dancers at the Retford Dance Festival. Eleanor achieved 1st in Lyrical, 1st in Modern and 2nd in Song and Dance and won the trophy for Highest Mark Senior Novice.

‘Dementia Friend’ session in Hasland The flagship campaign to make Hasland ‘Dementia Friendly’ is moving rapidly forward. I was recently invited to attend a ‘Dementia Friend’ information session hosted by Doctor Ian Anderson of Inspire Health, the group which includes both Hasland GP surgeries and Avenue House surgery in the town centre. Ian has now retired from practice but is chair of the Avenue House surgery Patient Participation Group. Ian has so far delivered the training to around 200 people and is a Dementia Friends Champion. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. It is massively important that communities learn to support those with dementia within their local area and Hasland is a flagship project aiming to do just that. As part of the project we are extremely fortunate to now have a specialist dementia support worker available for appointments each Wednesday morning from 10am‐12noon at the Hasland Hub on Saxton Close, home to the Grassland Hasmoor Big Local. Louisa Wood‐Hajdu works for the Alzheimer’s Society and it’s very clear she loves her role. Her mission is to meet people with dementia and their families in neutral territory to educate them about dementia or to help them with their issues. She is also able to signpost people towards the benefits they may be entitled to. It’s also worth remembering that Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre host sessions at the hub on a Wednesday afternoon and they may be able to help with forms and paperwork relating to benefits. Appointments with Louisa can be arranged through your GP surgery once a diagnosis of dementia is in place. Louisa was present at my information session along with Anne Graves, Service Manager for the Alzheimer’s Society based in Derby. We were also joined by Dallas and Karen who are both support workers for Grassland Hasmoor Big Local. The short information session is quite informal and completely free of charge to anyone who wants to learn more about dementia. After the session if you wish to do so you can be added to a nationwide database of Alzheimer’s friends. These skills can help you, your family and friends and your workplace as you will gain a real insight into the life of a person with dementia. After introductions we chatted about what we hoped to achieve from the session. Ian told us he hopes to show what can be done if commun‐ ities put their efforts together, as GP surgeries simply don’t have enough time and resources to offer additional support. We then discussed our thoughts on ‘dementia’ and the stigma attached to the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Society is keen to get across 5 key messages which the training guided us through: 1 Dementia is not a natural part of aging. It can happen to anyone at anytime but equally it is not going to happen to everyone.

2 Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain. It is possible to diagnose dementia using CT scans and ECGs. Blood tests are often done prior to scans to rule out any other conditions which may be causing the symptoms. There are more than 100 different causes of dementia. Alzheimers is a common form but other’s include Vascular Dementia which is caused by mini Strokes. Unfortunately dementia is always progressive.

3 Dementia isn’t just about losing your memory. It can affect motor skills, decision making, communication, perception, vision and more.

4 People with Dementia can still live well. They may well need support but can still have full and meaningful lives.

5 There is more to the person than dementia. Each patient will have a life full of experiences behind them which can be overlooked once they become ill. It’s important to offer people respect and try to understand their symptoms and behaviour. We discussed different ways to imagine how the mind of someone with dementia may work and talked about how we could help those people to communicate and live well. We also talked about the complexities of everyday life such as making a cup of tea from start to finish if the sequencing part of the brain is damaged or if motor skills are becoming weak or you have forgotten where things are kept. It was really useful to try to think about life from the perspective of someone with dementia and to try to understand the many difficulties they may face. 30

I’m proud to now be an official ‘Dementia Friend’ and would urge anyone to go along to the simple information session and become more educated about this disease. Eventually we will be creating a directory of ‘Dementia Friendly’ businesses in our area so why not try the session on behalf of your company and get them on the list. The next free information session will be held at Hasland Methodist Church on the 16th October at 7pm. The session itself will take about 50 minutes followed by tea and coffee and a chance to chat. Interested? Simply come along to the free session on the 16th. Why not help the cause even more by challenging yourself to convince 2 friends to come along with you. Future sessions will also be listed in the magazine.

What is dementia? Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting 62 per cent of those diagnosed. Other types of dementia include; vascular dementia affecting 17 per cent of those diagnosed, mixed dementia affecting 10 per cent of those diagnosed. Symptoms of dementia include memory loss, confusion and problems with speech and understanding. Dementia is a terminal condition. Banner Jones Solicitors have kindly offered some legal information regarding Lasting Power of Attourney to complement the Dementia Friendly project (see opposite page).

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney? A Lasting Power of Attorney or LPA as they are often referred to is a legal document that specifies the person (or people) that you (the donor) trust to make financial and welfare decisions on your behalf, in the event that you are incapable of doing so. You may also have heard of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs), which were replaced by Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) in 2007. You can no longer make an EPA, however, if you made an EPA before October 1 2007 and it was correctly filled in, it is still valid. An EPA, which is strictly limited to financial affairs can be used before the donor loses capacity, and at that point it will require registration. Bear in mind though that there may be a gap pending registration where no one has control.

When should I think about making an LPA and to whom should I give control? An LPA can only be created when your mental capacity is sound, so more often than not people create LPAs in later life when there is a higher chance of mental capacity being lost through dementia for example. However, mental capacity can be lost at any age as a result of say, an accident, so we would also advise anyone with complex financial affairs to have one as well. We would generally advise that you choose more than one attorney and most importantly, choose a person/people that you trust. Each of them would have to act as a signatory on all decisions. Recently there has been several reported cases of Elder Abuse whereby people have abused their powers as attorney and have effectively stolen the money entrusted to them. If for any reason you are unsure of who to select then you can also choose a professional attorney such as a solicitor to act on your behalf which may help to remove any doubt.

Why should I give someone Power of Attorney over my health and financial affairs? There are two types of LPAs: one covering finances and property, and the other covering health and welfare. A property and finances LPA allows your attorney to manage payments from your bank accounts and action the sale of any property for example, whereas the health and welfare LPA allows

them to make important decisions regarding your health, such as whether an operation should take place and what care you may require. You must have both in place if you wish both your financial and health affairs to be taken care of.

When does an LPA come into force? An LPA only comes into force when it is registered with the Office of Public Guardian. Some people choose to set up their LPAs but not register them, but we would advise you register them straight away as registration can take several weeks. This helps to avoid any delays should they By Sarah Nadin, be required sooner that you think. If you Head of Wills & Probate have a property & finance LPA then it can be used before capacity is lost, but don’t worry the attorney has to carry out your instructions so you retain control. The health & welfare LPA however only comes into force when it has been medically confirmed that your capacity has been lost.

What happens if I don’t have an LPA in place? If you lose the capacity to make your own decisions and you don’t have a valid LPA in place, then someone will need to apply to the Court of Protection to have a Deputy appointed instead. Something to bear in mind is that the Court decides who the Deputy will be, unlike the LPA process where you have that choice. Getting a Deputy appointed can take several months, during which your accounts may be frozen, resulting in a lot of stress for everyone involved. This process is much more costly than writing LPAs, as the application fee alone to become a Deputy is £385. A Deputy has a similar role to the trusted person under a Power of Attorney, although the Deputy will also have the additional burden of a recurring annual fee and having to provide regular accounting reports to the Court of Protection.

Time to Talk If a parent has been diagnosed with the early stages of Dementia, it may be a good time to talk to them about sorting their affairs. Have they got a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place so that someone else can make financial and welfare decisions on their behalf should they need to? Do you know whether they have a Will in place already and whether they’ve reviewed it in the last five years? Is it the right type of Will? Property Trust Wills can help to protect a share of the family home from care fees for example Helping your parents to sort out their affairs can be daunting, but if dealt with properly it can bring great peace of mind to the whole family. If you’re not sure where to start, we can guide you through. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

Fencing Success

Hasland Magazine Did you know that the ancient art & modern Olympic Sport of Fencing takes place every week at Sharley Park (Clay Cross) and in Dronfield.

Fencers from Wingerworth Fencing Club and Derbyshire Epee Club have recently represented their region, England & Great Britain in various competitions this year. Back in March eleven fencers qualified to represent the East Midlands in the British Youth Championships which are held in Sheffield each year, between them they came home with 5 medals. Three of these fencers go to school in Hasland & two of them currently have a National U14 ranking of 7th & 12th, not bad when you’re only 11 years old! A little further up the scale we have a bunch of teenagers who fence for fun & of course medals! At least 5 of them are at the top end of their age group national rankings & regularly fence abroad representing England & Great Britain. Fencing is not just for kids though, it’s a similar tale for the adults. Plenty of calorie burning friendly fencing bouts and a cluster of international fencers too, in fact one of our fencers recently got called up to represent Great Britain on the international stage. If you are a little older we have veterans, who with a blend of experience and skullduggery, will give anyone a good run for their money, as well as friendly advice to help you improve your skills. Our veteran section of the club is thriving and many of them have represented GB at the highest level. All of the above groups happily mix both on and off the piste ‐ all ages are welcome! Fencing is a great sport for all ages, it exercises the mind & body without becoming monotonous, every fight is different & you never stop learning. Thanks to Ev van Gemeren for the news.

Autumn preparations

Autumn is the time to plant up your pots for winter and spring colour. Start by putting a food layer of pebbles or broken clay pot pieces into the bottom before filling with a good free‐draining compost, this is necessary if they are to be outside throughout the winter. Plant up with your favourite plants and bulbs for colour now and on into the spring. As soon as Gladioli leaves begin to yellow, lift the corms with a fork and cut off the leaves about 1/2” from the corm. As soon as frost begins to blacken Dahlia and tuberous Begonia foliage, lift them and cut the stems to 6” from the tuber. Place in a tray in a warm place for about 7‐10 days to dry, then clean by removing old shrivelled corms and store in a cool frost free place. The Begonias and Dahlias should be kept in a tray with fairly dry peat to stop them drying out. This is the time for planting and replanting so early in the season prepare borders ready for this and then move or plant new shrubs or trees. this can be done until next April as long as the soil is not frozen. Double dig and add well rotted garden compost or manure, this can be bought from garden centres. At planting time make a large hole so the roots can spread out. Trees, Standard Roses and some taller shrubs need to be tied to a stake for support and this should be inserted into the hole before planting to avoid root damage. Scatter a handful of bone meal into the hole of any large shrub and lightly fork in. Soil that is replaced around the roots should be peat based to encourage new roots to form. Firm the root with the foot as the soil is added. It is important to set new plants at the same depth as they were at the nursery so look for the soil mark as a guide. After planting use plastic tree ties to stake as these are flexible and will expand as the tree grows.

Rose and hardwood shrub cuttings can still be taken. These are taken from this tears shoots and ideally need to be 6‐18 inches long. At the base of the cutting, cut just below a bud or the cutting can be removed with a slither of wood called a 'heel'. Insert the cuttings directly into the ground. This time next year you will be able to transplant them. Remember to be fairly ruthless about cutting the young plants back to leave about 4‐6 inches of growth as this will encourage them to bush out. Sweet peas and other flower seed can be sown outdoors, but for the best early plants sow in a plant pot and germinate in a cold frame. Keep the frame closed until the first leaves appear, then only close the frame during frosty or windy weather. Plant spring bedding plants as soon as summer bedding is cleared. Dig thoroughly and add well rotted compost so it is about 3‐4 inches deep. Either tread the beds or let them settle naturally before planting out Wallflowers, Pansies and Forget‐me‐nots. Bulbs and Lilies can still be planted and many of the spring bulbs look attractive planted between the bedding plants. Herbaceous plants can be split and planted on now unless the soil is heavy and then they should be left until March. Prepare the soil by adding bone meal and planting in groups of 3 to give a good show. Hardened off seedling alpines and rooted cuttings can be planted in the rock garden. Continue to plant out Carnations and Pinks. Water Camellias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons to make sure that buds that have already formed continue to get bigger ready for the flowers next year.

Lumsdale Falls - a hidden gem

Once a hive of bustling mills, Lumsdale Valley is a truly hidden historical and archaeological gem that makes for a wonderful walk and an interesting exploration. Only 9 miles away from Chesterfield via the A632 and just over a mile away from Matlock town centre, this stunning valley is ideally located. Dating back to the 1600’s, the Mill has had various uses over the years including; spinning, bleaching and grinding materials such as bone and corn for paint manufacture. In 2014 the Lumsdale mills and associated water management features were scheduled by English Heritage (now Historic England) as a monument of national archaeological and historic importance. It also won the Best Volunteer Project for Explore Lumsdale at the Derbyshire Heritage Awards. Now run by the Arkwright Society, who are a passionate educational charity, the mill, millponds and waterfalls make a perfect visit for families and avid photographers like myself. A word of caution, the path near the waterfall is quite steep and there are many stairs, therefore, not advisable to those with mobility problems or wheelchair users. There is no designated parking for the Valley and vehicular access is limited to residents only. The best place to park is opposite Highfields School (postcode DE4 5NA) and walk down the well‐signed paths to the area. There are guided walks of the Valley led by enthusiastic volunteers (details available on the Cromford Mills website) with a donation of £3 per person requested. There are self‐guided tours also available which take around 90 minutes in total with leaflets available outside Ivy Cottage and Beech House. Lumsdale is certainly a worthwhile, fun jaunt especially given its close proximity to Chesterfield and the stunning town of Matlock. Whether it’s a stroll with the family or an opportunity to take a few snaps with the camera, you won’t be disappointed. Articles and photography by Scott Antcliffe 35

HASLAND CFC NEWS Club looks forward to a good Under 7’s search for sponsor season after positive start Players at all age groups enjoyed an excellent weekend of football at the start of September as Hasland CFC's growing number of teams kicked off their new season. The positive start to the new league campaign included excellent performances from all the club's mini soccer teams, namely the Under 7s and Under 7 Eagles who played their first ever games. It also included wins for most of the youth teams ‐ including the Under 12 Boys, Under 12 Girls, Under 13, Under 14 and Under 14 Eagles sides. The new season also saw the launch of a brand new suite of manager wear that is being rolled out to club coaches.
