Welcome to Hasland Magazine December is here! It’s my favourite time of year and I can’t wait for Christmas and the children being off school. As the magazine went to press the cold weather and rain had certainly arrived in force.

Fitness classes, what’re they all about?

Hasland Magazine

How many of us have almost tried a fitness class? Come on; you’ve signed up, thought about it some more and backed out at the last minute because it’s something too new, you’re not sure if it’s for you, or you think there’ll be too many people there who may well laugh at you. It happens more often than you realise – but fitness classes are one of the best methods of working out. Seriously. Designed to either get your heart racing to burn calories, or practice mindfulness to reenergise yourself; classes are also a sociable place to be – a place where you don’t need to think about what you can do next, because the instructor already has that covered for you.

How do they help? Joining a fitness class – and then going – ensures you keep on track with your fitness journey and can benefit from learning new routines or methods of exercise. Surrounding yourself with like‐minded individuals all doing the same thing as you can be empowering. Group fitness classes often have individuals motivating one another to keep going or to make new friends, as you may have to partner up for some exercise routines.

New to exercise or a gym environment? Fitness classes mean you don’t have to think of a plan or, you don’t have to make sudden changes if a piece of equipment isn’t available. Each class, from Body Pump through to Pilates, is designed, structured and led by an instructor – real time or virtual. Not only will you be guided through the 30 to 60‐minute set, you’ll be shown if you need to improve on your


posture, increase your weight and even shown how to safely cool‐down post workout. These factors are great for first‐time gym‐goers, or if you’re new to exercise.

Add variety! It’s so very easy to get stuck into the same old workout routine or swim session. Often when this happens, people stop going to the gym or swimming, when they could be looking at new ways to move to the next stage of their fitness journey. Whether you’re looking to increase your cardio, discover how you can stretch out your body more or just need a break from the same old thing – classes will add a touch of variety to your life. Not just that – they’re always fun! Take a look at the range of fitness classes available from Places Gym and join in for free with a free 5‐day pass. You can even bring along a friend for free, if you don’t want to face it alone for the first time. For more information about the classes available at Places Gym visit placesgymchesterfield.org.

Hasland Magazine

LouLou’s Hair Salon proudly celebrates 30 years in business The salon has been a fixture on Mansfield Road since Louise Brocklehurst opened the doors two weeks before Christmas in 1989. Louise’s daughter Chloe contacted me to fill me in on her Mum’s long and successful hairdressing career and to tell me how proud she is of her lovely Mum. Louise started hairdressing as soon as she left school at the age of 16. She is originally from Walton but moved to Hasland when she was 24. She welcomed her daughter Chloe into the world on a Monday 22 years ago having locked up the salon on the Saturday before. She returned to the salon just two weeks later! Louise is also Mum to son Max aged 19. Some of Louise’s clients have been with her since she first opened and the team are very proud of the services that they offer. Louise’s husband built an extension on the salon some years ago to accommodate more clients in comfort. Louise loves all aspects of her job and truly enjoys helping her clients to feel good. Chloe told me “She’s so patient with everyone ‐ old and young, and goes above and beyond for her clients. She even picks up some of her older clients at the start of the day if they are her first appointment and takes them home if they are the last. She loves her work and I don’t think she’ll ever retire! She’ll always be involved in the salon. Mum also loves spending time with her family, friends and pets.” “She is incredibly proud of her hardworking and loyal team at the salon. Sarah has been with her for 21 years, David for 13 and Kayleigh for 8 years. She also has a regular Saturday helper and a college student who works at the salon once a week on placement. I think that the length of time that her staff have stayed with her says a lot about her character.” “I really wanted to tell everyone that I’m so proud of my Mum, she works so hard and has given us so much in life and I’m so lucky to have her. She is modest about it but I really think that 30 years is a massive achievement and deserves some recognition. Here’s to the next 30 years!” Chloe herself has been a beauty therapist for six years and has now joined her Mum in the salon offering a range of beauty treatments to complement the hairdressing services.

Chesterfield Junior Bowling League THIS YEAR MARKS THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF CHESTERFIELD’S OWN JUNIOR BOWLING LEAGUE. THE LEAGUE HAS BEEN MEETING AT CHESTERFIELD BOWL SINCE 1989 AND IS STILL THRIVING. The sessions are open to anyone aged from 6‐21 years old and the managers are always on the lookout for new players. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn to bowl. The first four coaching sessions are even free of charge. The usual cost of the weekly coaching is just £3 and if your child chooses to join the weekly league games then the total cost is £7. The BTBA affiliated league session takes place from 9.30‐10.30am on Saturdays with players bowling in teams of 2. This is followed by a 1 hour coaching session. There are 3 qualified instructors available for coaching and support ‐ all are CRB checked. The group receive no formal funding so fundraising is a must. Sarah Dodson is the chief fundraiser and attends many local galas and fairs, mostly during the school summer holidays. The group also hold a Christmas Fundraiser with stalls at Chesterfield Bowl and a ‘little and large’ competition run by Chesterfield Bowl with teams of one adult and one child. Sharing platters are also available at the event. The group currently has 21 members, 20 of which play in the league. They also attend occasional tournaments. A few of the players are applying for the Triple Crown and one of their players, TJ, has even bowled for England. You can find out more by visiting the team Facebook page ‘Chesterfield Spires YBC’. If you are interested in giving it a try you can send them an email using the address on their page or simply pop down to the Saturday morning sessions for a chat. I really enjoyed my visit to the session, there was a great friendly atmosphere and everyone was clearly enjoying themselves. Parents need to stay with children under 16 ‐ a great excuse to visit the cafe or enjoy watching the bowling! The league season runs from September ‐ July before taking a break for the school holidays. They enjoy an awards ceremony each September to award trophies and badges from the previous season.

Tailor-made solutions to your insurance needs These days it’s so easy to price check any product on the internet to find the lowest price, but is that really the best approach when it comes to something as important as your insurance? Many insurance products bought online fall into the ‘one size fits all’ category. This means that you aren’t actually getting the correct product that is perfect for your home, business, property, travel or car insurance needs. In turn that means you may not have the cover you so desperately need should an incident or accident occur. By choosing to use a local insurance company you get a much more personalised product ensuring it's suited to meet your requirements if the worst should happen. Penk Insurance have been helping the people of Chesterfield with their insurance needs for over 30 years. Owners Jenny and David Penk and their friendly expert team know Chesterfield. They know local details such as flooding risk, crime risk and subsidence zones. You can visit their welcoming office on Chatsworth Road and talk to a real person to find just the right product for you. They have an up to date knowledge of the constantly changing network of insurances and the latest developments in cover. As well as domestic insurance products, Penk specialise in business and commercial and rental property insurance. They currently insure many local businesses including several on Chatsworth Road. Because they are so local a team member can visit your premises to establish your demands and needs free of charge so that your insurance policy can be tailored for you. Their commercial experts, David and Jason can offer you their wealth of experience to help you decide on your cover.

Property specialist Alix can assess your commercial or rental property needs even if your property is unoccupied to ensure you have protection in place. Penk are not tied to any specific insurer so their only incentive when choosing a product is making sure it’s the right one for you. They can read and advise you on all the small print to ensure you are aware of your cover provided. With crime levels on the increase it’s important to know that you could get your business up and running again in the shortest time possible following an incident. Penk make it their priority to help and assist you in your time of need to get your claim registered right away with the insurer and they are always on hand to help with any questions. When renewal time comes through they will check that your product is still right for you and that the renewal price is still good value as well as conducting a market search. The team at Penk love being part of the local community. This year they are a drop off point for Peak FM’s ‘Gift a Smile at Christmas’ scheme and they have often fundraised for Ashgate Hospice and helped out with other charity events. They offer apprenticeships to young people, many of whom are still part of the team. They certainly offer a lot more than your average call centre! Why not give them a call to talk about your domestic or business needs on 01246 558844 or visit them at 49 ‐ 53 Chatsworth Road, S40 2AL.

Mystery Bowling Club Photograph This photograph was sent to me by Alan Rhodes of Hasland (kindly delivered to my house by Stewart Goggins!). It is a photograph of

Eastwood Park Bowling Club at what seems to be a presentation evening. It was almost certainly taken in The Devonshire Arms in Hasland in their function room adjacent to the bar.

It is difficult to put an exact date on when the photograph was taken but it was certainly before 1942 as Alan’s father is on the photo and he passed away in early 1942. Alan and Stewart would be very interested to know if any readers recognise, and can put a name to anyone on the photograph? Please email: trudyfordesign@gmail.com if you can offer any information about the event or the people.

Food happiness at Adam’s Happy Hens

Farmer Adam Higginbottom started “Adam's Happy Hens” at the age of 22. After watching his father milk the family’s dairy herd twice a day for many years, Adam decided that dairy farming wasn’t for him. After various heated discussions with his father David, he decided to diversify into chickens and free range eggs. Adam purchased his first 40 hens in 2014 and sold his eggs from a box on the wall at the end of the farm lane on the main Baslow Road. From then on, his little business began to grow. The first shop was built (a little wooden shed) in 2015 and Adam began to stock locally sourced products such as potatoes and honey (the shop still sells these and the bee hives can be seen dotted round the farm.) The business continued to flourish and now Adam has a flock of 700 birds and runs the farm shop with his partner Harriet. Adam and Harriet’s ethos is to run a friendly business providing fresh good quality produce, whilst supporting other local businesses. The farm continues to be a working farm so there is always something to see. Customers are able to see the free range chickens out in the fields and are welcome to feed the hens and the two goats Bertie and Myrtle with feed sold at the shop. There are also other animals located on the farm and around the shop including two donkeys ‐ Beatrix and Bramble, the long standing turkey Charlie, Millie the working collie dog and lots of ducks, geese and bantams. You may also bump into Whinnie and Rigsby, Adam and Harriet’s family dogs. Customers, young and old are able to see all the animals whilst getting the household essentials in a unique shopping experience. The farm shop stocks local, fresh and seasonal produce including meat, vegetables and oatcakes alongside free range eggs of course. Fresh bread, milk and dairy produce, pies and also vegan/gluten free items are also available, not forgetting the best brownies ever! Plus straw, hay, logs and kindling too! The ‘fish man’ Shaun comes on a Thursday and a local lady provides beautiful flowers and bouquets. Jan the jam lady provides all the homemade preserves. It really is a great little place. If you haven’t yet been then it’s definitely worth a trip.

Secure timber door and sliding sash window fitted to homes by Keystone

Hasland Methodist Church turned to Keystone when it became clear that the entrance doors on the side of the church building were in need of replacement.

The original design features were included in the new doors including the striking arched glass panels. Keystone are always happy to discuss your home improvements with you. They offer high quality timber windows, doors, flooring and furniture and can help you from planning to completion. Their windows are double glazed and just as secure and easy to maintain as uPVC.

Remembrance Parade & Stunning centenary displays

This year Reverend Margaret Mwailu led the Hasland Remembrance parade along with Pastor John Pickering. They paraded into the park where the uniformed organisations assembled around the Cenotaph for the Act of Remembrance.

The Mess Chairman laid a wreath, followed by other members of the parade who laid their own personal wreaths. The last post was played followed by 2 mins silence, then Reveille before the Act of Commitment from Rev Margaret. The Lords Prayer was said and then the National Anthem was sung before the Blessing. The names of the soldiers on the Cenotaph were read out by leaders of the uniformed organisations. The parade marched to the church and when inside the flags from each uniformed organisation were received and the service continued with a hymn. A member of the church, Gladys Gill, explained what life was like for her as a child living during the Second World War and experiencing the Sheffield Blitz. She continued to share her memories with those attending the service. Senior Steward Val Gratton read from St John’s Gospel and Anne Brittain read a poem ‘We Shall Keep the Faith’. Johnathan Cooper led the service with a story to help relate the meaning of Sacrifice and he invited children to participate & help him to explain the story. The flags were handed back to the flag bearers of each organisation, then the National Anthem was sung followed by a blessing from Rev Margaret before the parade marched out of church. It was a fitting tribute paid for the Act of Remembrance by the Hasland Community. Reverend Margaret commented: “We are very grateful for all who joined us for the Remembrance Service. It was good to pause together to remember all those who fought in Beautiful Poppy WW1, WW2 and subsequent wars. We are Cascade at Grassmoor Church grateful for their sacrifices.” Thanks to Angela Goggins for the Remembrance report.

We will remember them A fantastic display of knitted poppies also adorned the memorial this year following a great idea from Drew Lilleker to place a single poppy for each of the 116 Fallen marked on the Eastwood Park Memorial. Harold Lilleker & Sons wish to thanks Walton Knitters for making Drew’s idea come true. Drew would also like to thank Tony Brooks and friends for the other poppy tributes and to say a special thanks to Mark Gill who lead the 11‐00 silence.

Nathan and Ashley Lilleker are placing the knitted poppies. 26

‘The Angel Man’ ‐ Funeral Directer gets a new nickname Drew Lilleker firmly believes that adding a theme to funerals can really help children to cope during the loss of a loved one. He told me “Giving children choices really makes a difference to them at a dark time. At Lillekers we’ve had children thinking up designs for coffins as well as choosing theme colours for a funeral. If it helps them to cope then anything goes in my book. We recently held a funeral service themed by a love of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. We had blue and white on the horses and the family wore football shirts.” “The young man helping me get it right for his loved one on that occasion was little Josh. I met him a few times whilst working with his family and I thought he was brilliant. During this time he called me the ‘Angel Man’ and it seems to have stuck (I’ve been called worse!). It’s nice to have a reminder of helping a family and that’s what we are here for.

Thank you to our local community for their patience The team at Harold Lilleker & Sons wish to thank everyone for their help and patience during the last few weeks as they have seen the clocks go back to the past with requests for traditional horsedrawn Funerals. Until recently horses were a once a year request for the team but Lillekers have performed 5 horsedrawn funerals in 5 weeks and more than one each month this year. Drew believes the recent increase in horsedrawn funerals is due to the fact that families prefer a traditional service at a respectful pace, in todays far too busy world. This is combined with people realising that this option is still available to them. “I’ve always loved the photograph of my father Bruce conducting a horsedrawn funeral in the 1970s (pictured right). The price of this option is always a shock to most people as they believe it cost thousands of pounds ‐ which is far from the truth.”

Target Together mother & son lose an incredible 1/2

7 stone

Seeing a photo from her Son’s birthday party set Claire on the path to transforming both their lives. “I have been overweight for years and have tried many diets without success. After finally accepting being overweight I never thought much more about it until looking back through the photos from my son’s birthday party I realised just how big I had got. More devastatingly Jordan, my son had also piled the weight on and we were the biggest we had ever been. Jordan was wearing XXL mens clothing at the age 19 and I was wearing a size 20. It was time to do something about it.

Amazing before and after images of Claire & Jordan

My friend and her son had mentioned to me about Slimming World previously and at the time I had refused, but knowing I had to lose weight and support Jordan to do so too, I decided to give it ago. We went along to Hasland Methodist Church on a Wednesday evening and the lovely warm welcome we both received from Lynda the consultant and all the other members really reassured us. I just knew we were in the right place. After a couple of weeks I was hooked and soon came to realise that Slimming World isn’t a diet, its a lifestyle change. Food Optimising is Slimming World’s eating plan and I was amazed at the amount of food you can eat including lean meats, fish, pasta, potatoes and so much more. We never feel hungry and I know every ingredient that we put into our meals is going to help us lose weight, nothing is off limits as everything can be adapted. The group support has been a key to our success as we both learn so much each week from new recipes and tips to hints and lots more. We have made friends along the way who we can’t wait to see each week. Each member really does cheer you on and supports you in those tough times alongside Lynda. One of the best parts of losing weight and going down in clothes sizes is the awards you receive which made us both feel proud and spurred us on even more. Jordan loved them and would rush home to display them on the fridge. Jordan and myself are now both Target members and still attend group weekly. I have lost just over 4 stone and I am now in a size 8‐10 and Jordan has lost 3 1/2 stone and he’s now wearing a medium mens clothing. I feel amazing and a lot younger and it’s lovely seeing my son being more energetic than he used to be and a lot happier. I am so proud of him and what he has achieved. I just wish I had done it sooner as it’s given us our lifes back. We are so happy and if we can do it anyone can.

Kenzi on the Stage! Spital Cemetery News Regular readers will remember that Kenzi Jupp won a poetry competition earlier this year and had his poem published in a poetry anthology. Since then news has spread about Kenzi’s brilliant poem about his autism. During October Derbyshire Autism Services held a fundraising poetry event in Derby, ‘A celebration of family’ hosted by prizewinning poet and writer Henry Normal. The head of the service, Chris Pienaare, contacted Henry to ask if Kenzi could possibly read his poem at the event and Henry happily obliged. Kenzi’s Mum Mandy told me that Kenzi was invited to open the event. He was given two options on how to do this ‐ walk quietly onto the stage from the audience or ‘burst through the curtains’. Far from being shy Kenzi chose the showy entrance! He was introduced by the head of DAS  before reading his poem to the crowd. He was then joined on stage by Henry Normal to take his bows and enjoy the applause. Kenzi told me that Henry was ‘lovely and very kind to him’. I later contacted Henry to ask if he had any thoughts on Kenzi’s poetry, he told me “It was a pleasure to meet Kenzi, he is an astute, pleasant and courageous young man. His mother passed me some of his other poems which I have read and I've since written to Kenzi care of his mother. He has great potential and is in a very interesting position to enlighten if he chooses to take his writing further.” Chris Pienaare also told Mandy that he now uses Kenzi’s poem to open seminars and introduce people to autism. He often receives requests for permission to use the Kenzi & Henry poem for other teaching purposes. Kenzi is very determined and ambitious. He plans to continue to be an ambassador for young people with autism. Along with two friends he discussed his plans with Chris Pienaar who then managed to secure some funding from the charity ‘I Will’ which offers funding to young people who want to make a positive difference to others or the environment. The trio hope to put together a teaching programme to educate other young people about autism in schools. He has also received some help from a private sponsor who purchased an information banner for him to use on stage. In time he hopes to create an entire poetry book based around autism to help people to understand the condition.

Fantastic work Kenzi ‐ keep us up to date with what happens next!


Remembering the fallen from WW1 and WW2 is part of the work of the Friends of Spital Cemetery. This year’s event was extra special as we were also opening a path, thanks to generous funding from Greggs. We were remembering the men who returned and the families who bravely bore their losses and worked to create a peaceful world for their children. For most of us these were just names but Mary Coulson, Iris, John Hopkinson, Kate Parsons and Lyn Holmes shared a few moving words with us about the resilience of their relative whose name was read out.

Photo on the new path where wife and mother of the brothers Laurence and Patrick are remembered and the veteran’s bench.

Thanks to the Mayor and Mayoress for performing the opening ceremony, John‐Charles Tanner for playing the last post and reveille and especially to 12 fabulous children from Y6 at St Peter and St Paul School who put in labels on the Rose and Rosemary plants while a wonderful group of ladies from Chesterfield Town Women’s Institute read the names. That wasn’t all ‐ they’d also made cakes which were much appreciated when we went on for refreshments at St Leonard’s Church Centre. We have opened up a new area for quiet reflection in the cemetery. There is growing evidence that being around trees and being close to nature is good for our wellbeing. This year our tree in the Crooked Spire Festival of Christmas Trees is celebrating the fabulous collection of trees in the cemetery highlighting the huge importance of trees in helping us tackle the world’s climate emergency. We hope you will come and find us and enjoy our tree. Update by Liz Cook ‐ Friends of Spital Cemetery.

Football Success at Hasland Juniors Hasland Junior School Girls Football Team is growing in skill and strength since starting training just a few weeks ago in September. The girls attended two events in October, the first one was at St. Mary’s school and was skills based for the first hour before the teams played two matches. The Hasland Girls won both of their matches. They then visited Outwood Academy to participate in the Girls Soccer Final. Despite not winning they had a wonderful time and showed great levels of passion and determination. Miss McKinnon would like to congratulate the girls on their amazing progress.

The boys football team are thriving too. They played the first round of the Y5/6 Football Competition at Hasland Hall on Thursday 17th October against Brimington and St Mary's. They won both of their matches gaining them a place at the finals on Tuesday 22nd October at Brookfield. They played brilliantly, winning 4 out of 5 matches and lost one. It was a close win and they came second on goal difference. Well done to all the boys. You represented the school well and were a delight to take.

Health tips to lose weight and keep it off 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.

‘Weight loss’ ‐ two words that we often think about, but more often that not are faced with the overwhelming prospect of where to begin. I hate the word ‘diet’. I don’t see it as a diet, but having the mind‐set of weight loss as a lifestyle change, rather than seeing food as a means of reward and punishment, will really help long term. In the UK, seven out of ten men, and six out of ten women are overweight or obese. Being overweight or obese can increase the chances of developing serious diseases such as; type‐two diabetes, coronary heart disease and some cancers. Obesity can also affect a person’s mental health with depression and low self‐esteem being associated with being overweight. A person’s weight is determined by the amount of energy obtained from your food compared to the amount of energy that your body is using. The excess energy you take in from food and drink is stored as fat. To lose weight, the energy you take in from food must be less than the energy you use, in other words eat less and exercise more. There is no ‘quick fix’ for obesity. Weight loss takes time and commitment and it really is a marathon, not a sprint. The Word Health Organisation advise that a safe weight loss is one to two pounds per week. This is a realistic and achievable amount. The quicker a person loses weight, more often than not, they are quicker to gain weight. Below, I will outline some tips for safe and achievable weight loss.

Never skip breakfast The old saying ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is so true. Breakfast literally means ‘break the fast’. Having a good, healthy breakfast such as poached eggs on wholemeal toast or porridge with pumpkin seeds is a great way to fire up your metabolism and help you feel fuller for longer, therefore, less likely to have cravings for sugary foods to give us an energy boost.

Drink lots of water Our brains often struggle to distinguish between hunger and thirst. We often think we are hungry, when we are thirsty. Drinking high amounts of caffeine (which is a diuretic) will in the long run actually make you feel dehydrated (this is why people can have headaches from tea and coffee). Aim for around two litres of water per day. This has other benefits such as preventing constipation, helping improve skin, and reducing the likelihood of kidney issues.

Eat high protein and high fibre foods Eating a diet high in protein and fibre can help you feel fuller for longer and less likely to snack and eat excess food. Your body uses protein for building and repairing muscles and tissue. It is also used to make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals. Good sources of protein include; eggs, milk, yoghurt, chicken, turkey, soya, beans, pulses, nuts and seeds. Fibre can aid digestion and help with constipation. Fibrous foods include; fruit, vegetables, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice, beans, peas and lentils.

Cut down on alcohol Many of us like a tipple, but we must do so in moderation. Guidelines suggest that we shouldn’t drink any more than 14 units per week (6 pints of beer, or 10 small glasses of wine). Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram which is almost as much as fat (9 calories per gram). A pint of beer contains roughly between 200‐250 calories, which is the equivalent of a slice of pizza or a Snickers bar. Opting for a spirit instead is less calorific as a gin and tonic contains roughly 75 calories. Drinking a glass of water between drinks can also keep you hydrated. Food prevents alcohol from passing quickly into your small intestine. When there is food in your stomach before drinking, alcohol is absorbed more slowly. Drinking on an empty stomach intensifies all the side effects of drinking, such as your ability to think and coordinate your body movements. Hopefully these tips have given you a starting point into making some sustainable changes which can certainly improve your quality of life.

Prepare your winter garden As winter draws in now is the last chance to plant bulbs, Tulips being the last to be planted for spring colour. Lilies can be planted at anytime until next April as long as the soil conditions are good. There is still time to plant shrubs and trees either directly into the ground or into pots to brighten a patio area or hide a manhole cover. Put crocks into the bottom to cover the drainage holes and add plant up in a mixture of good soil, peat and sharp sand enriched with a handful of bone meal. Also scatter bone meal around plants and gently fork in whilst removing any weeds. Now is the last chance on good days to have a tidy up in the garden and to make sure it is able to survive the winter. Rake up all leaves and compost them, if you don't have a leaf mould bin put them into a black bag and fork air holes into it, keep in a place where it won't blow around or put a brick on top of it. Many perennials should now be cut down to ground level, although any with attractive seed heads can be left as long a s they're not made messy by the wind. Also seed heads can attract birds into the garden to eat insects and grubs from other plants. Alpines can stand any amount of cold weather but dampness will kill them so make sure all leaves are removed from the rock garden and cover choice plants, especially those with woolly leaves, with glass or plastic domes. Make sure that all trees and shrubs are secure in the ground and have no rubbing branches as these will have to be removed. Prune established deciduous trees, it is better to do this earlier in the winter when the days are usually milder and more pleasant to be outdoors. On fruit trees aim for an open wine glass shape to allow air to circulate and fruit to form where they will get the maximum light. Remove the growing point from Sweet Peas sown in October, when 2‐3 leaf pairs have formed, this will encourage new side shoots. Outside containers need to be insulated before heavy frosts, wrap in fleece and stand on feet so air can circulate. Put the fleece on when it is cool but dry or you will seal in the damp. If you are going to make wreaths and table decorations, make sure the birds don't eat all the berries by covering a small area with fleece or sacking to save for later. This can also apply to Christmas Roses which can be covered with a bell cloche to save them. Now can also be a time to plan your borders for next year, consider all round colour and decide which new plants you would like to introduce to lift a dull area. The new plants could be added to your Christmas wish list.

Raymond enjoying the warm water during his swimming lesson

121 swimming tuition in a warm private pool Fun and enjoyable lessons Adult lesson specialist Post-op rehabilitation exercise Swimming stroke analysis Personalised tuition Qualified experienced instructors Daytime availability Owners Lynn & Glyn invite you to try a different kind of swim no crowds, no splashing, no cold water and no pressure.

Swim121 specialise in swimming lessons for clients with additional needs.

Why is Swim121 different? Many people feel uncomfortable, nervous or intimidated by busy crowded swimming pools or communal changing rooms. The thought of trying to swim amongst those more confident than themselves can be offputting. If you prefer to learn in a safe and peaceful setting then you should definitely give 121 a try. They offer a great environment for adult beginners looking to learn to swim. The pool at Swim121 is kept at a warm 32˚C compared to the usual 27˚C pool temperature which means it’s great for those who feel the cold due to illness or age. The pool is also cleaned by UV filtering. This means that very little chlorine is needed as the water is cleaned by passing through a UV light. This is ideal for anyone with sensitive skin or those who don’t like the smell of chlorine. The team are experts in stroke analysis, meaning they can help even long term swimmers perfect their stroke. They have also helped triathlon candidates who may have running and cycling experience but aren’t strong swimmers.

The after school swimming lessons are extremely popular, however there is plenty of daytime availability for adults and other swimming students. Lessons are usually booked in blocks of 5 x 30 minute session although one off lessons are available. If you would like to find out more about how you could benefit from 121 lessons just give them a call. Lynn & Glyn opened Swim121 in 2004. They are open 7 days a week and have 8 swim instructors and 4 reception staff, many of whom have been with them for many years and live local to Hasland. The couple love Hasland and are proud to be part of our buzzing community. They also contribute something very unique to our area - the opportunity for those with additional needs to learn to swim in a safe and supportive environment. The lovely pool is located in a large conservatory style building with private changing room. Swim121 also offer residential swimming courses in their luxury holiday rental accommodation.

Swimming for health, mind & wellbeing Swim121 owner and swimming instructor Lynn invited me to the pool to chat to two of her clients about their swimming journey. I have had lessons at the pool myself so I already know what a fantastic teacher Lynn is, but I had no idea what a lifeline the team at 121 have offered to their clients who need extra support. Jill has been swimming with Lynn for 1 year. At 52 she felt she was a latecomer to swimming ‐ she had never been to a pool and was completely petrified of the whole concept. Jill suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and never thought she would overcome her anxiety over visiting a pool. Last year she and her partner booked a dream holiday to Thailand and that finally spurred Jill on to push herself to talk to Lynn about learning to swim. She had tried to pluck up the courage one year before but never made it as far as the pool. Jill told me, “I was so nervous when I finally got here that I came out in a rash. I just didn’t think I could get in the pool. As soon as I met Lynn I began to calm down, she made me feel so comfortable that I got into the water. The warm water and calm environment really helped. Lynn asked me to hold onto the side of the pool and lift up my legs. She told me there and then that I could learn to swim and I believed her immediately.”

Over the course of a year Jill has not only learned to swim, but now also loves to dive into the water. On her holiday in Thailand she swam in a beautiful lake. She has recently completed her Bronze Challenge certificate which involved swimming 400m backstroke and breaststroke as well as treading water for three minutes, sculling, jumping into the pool and surface diving. She has also developed an excellent front crawl technique. The main effect for Jill though has actually been out of the water. She told me that conquering her fears and achieving her swimming goals has made her more confident as a person. She is considering learning to drive, something she never thought she would feel brave enough to do before. She told me “Lynn has opened up a whole new world for me and always sets me small challenges to try to increase my confidence. Just last week I went to a public swimming pool for the very first time by myself. Although this may seem a small thing to some people to me it had always seemed impossible. The sense of achievement I felt when I got out was amazing.” “I’m so proud that I keep all of my certificates in a scrapbook to remind myself how far I have come in one year. My children and grandchildren are thrilled for me. I look forward

to a day when I feel able to take my grandchildren swimming with me.” I asked Jill what’s next for her and she told me that she hopes to complete her Silver Challenge Award in the near future and that constantly challenging herself has helped her to become stronger. She has also felt health benefits with an improvement in her asthma symptoms as well as her overall wellbeing. “Coming swimming is my mindfulness, my me time ‐ it revives me after a hard week. Lynn has given me a gift by taking the time and patience to understand my fears. I hope my story gives others the confidence to give it a try.” I also went along to Raymond’s swimming lesson with Glyn. Raymond is 23 years old. When he was young his Mum Gloria was told that he could never learn to swim due to his autism and learning difficulties. Gloria refused to accept those limitations and Raymond has now been enjoying his lessons at Swim121 for 10 years. Raymond has a lot of anxiety issues so it was very important that he felt completely comfortable with his teacher. He warmed to Glyn very quickly and now loves his time in the pool. Initially the team focused on getting Raymond swimming using any technique that he could manage but it soon became clear that he was capable of much more than that. He can now swim in every stroke and has completed his Gold Challenge Certificate. Gloria told me that he has gained some much‐needed self confidence from his swimming achievements. I chatted to Raymond after his lesson and he told me that he likes to swim breaststroke and he enjoys the basketball activities during his ‘funtime’ at the end of each session. He was happy to have his photograph taken with his most recent certificate. Lynn and Glyn’s son Jonathan is also autistic so Glyn understood exactly how to teach Raymond. They both have a wealth of experience in teaching children with both physical disabilities and special educational needs. Lynn told me that part of the reason that they started the 121 school was so that they would be able to help families in a similar situation who are told that their children can’t achieve and to help them to do so anyway. I had no idea that the pool and the team had become such a valuable asset for families and individuals that need specialist help to learn to swim. They were recently recognised in the Parliament Review as a niche business helping those with diverse needs ‐ something that Lynn is very proud of. Swim121 offers a real sanctuary to those who are too nervous or uncomfortable to swim in a group environment. We are very lucky to have such a fantastic facility on our doorstep.

Information session a great success! Hasland’s ‘Dementia Friendly’ team held their first open information session on the 16th October and the interest was amazing. The session took place at Hasland Methodist Church at 7pm. Having already completed my own Dementia Friend session the month before I arrived towards the end of the evening to chat to those taking part. I expected to find the group in a meeting room in the church but actually found them in the main church ‐ which was full. Dr Ian Anderson hosted the session, which was free of charge and open to all. Word had obviously spread about the importance of awareness of dementia in society as over 65 people came to find out more. They were each rewarded with a ‘Dementia Friend’ badge and invited to submit their contact details to the Alzheimers Society to register as a ‘Dementia Friend’ if they wished to do so. The information / training takes around one hour to complete and covers basic concepts of what life can be like for those living with different kinds of dementia and how we can try to see the world from their perspective. In partnership with the Alzheimer’s society, Luiza a Dementia Support Worker was also in attendance and introduced herself to the group at the end of the session. Luiza is part of the Derbyshire Dementia Support Service which are funded by Derbyshire County Council. This service is part of the flagship project in Hasland to help dementia patients and their families live well within their own community. You can ask any Inspire Health GP Practice to refer you or your family to Luiza following a diagnosis of dementia and she is available for appointments every Wednesday morning at Hasland Hub (Saxton Close). John Essex and Philip Arrandale also introduced themselves as part of the Inspire Health Patient Participation Group (PPG) who are behind the scheme to try to find ‘Dementia Friends’ at community level. John explained how any Inspire Patient can join the PPG by attending meetings, or can email inspirehealthppg@gmail.com for more information. Philip told us that he hopes that this kind of project can continue in the future and move on to help people to understand other illnesses such as diabetes. This thought was echoed by Angela Goggins who attended the session and felt that future training about diabetes would be truly beneficial to the community. Debbie from Therapy Dogs UK was also at the session with her beautiful dog Rich. Rich is a fabulous Great Dane therapy dog and Debbie told me how interacting with Rich and other therapy dogs can help patients with dementia to recall stories from their past. Families love to see their loved ones interacting with the dog and enjoying themselves. Ian Anderson told me that he was over the moon with the amount of people who had shown interest and support for the project by coming along. After the session I mingled with some of the guests to find out what they thought about the ‘Dementia Friend’ information. Ruth Van Gemeren: “For someone new to dealing with dementia it’s a great starting point and a good community project.” Stewart Goggins: “Good session, and so good to see it well attended. Very interesting evening. My Mother had dementia and it was very informative to understand how the mind works with this condition. It was also a good reminder that there is still the whole person there.” Peggy Grubb: “Very interesting session which helped me to make sense of some things about dementia.” Steven Wright: This was a total learning curve and very well presented. I’m thrilled that it has been so well attended.” 36

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.

What is a Patient Participation Group [PPG]? It’s the patients’ voice at their GP surgery (General Practice) - it keeps you informed of changes at your surgery and allows you to comment. It’s an exciting opportunity to contribute to the life of your GP Surgery. On 7/11/19 patients of the 3 Inspire Health General Practices Avenue House, Hasland Medical Centre & Hasland Surgery met to form a new PPG - INSPIRE HEALTH PPG. This PPG will be responsible for driving the major projects that have been set as goals for the coming year. Avenue House PPG will continue and the 2 Hasland Practices’ PPG’s will join to form one group. Each will continue to be involved in their local surgeries. The new ‘Inspire Health’ PPG will be virtual in that there will be a minimum of meetings and email will be the main communication. A regular newsletter will be written and made available to all PPG members. This will keep patients informed of changes within the 3 Practices and progress within the action areas for 2020. Our planned action areas are: 1 Improve communication with patients, to include a newsletter, PPG website, TV screens in the surgery reception ares, and patients’ use of online services. 2 Achieve full 'dementia friendly’ accreditation for the 3 Practices. 3 Ensure all patients are able to access quality health care, with special regard for the disadvantaged and people with a disability. 4 Diabetes management. PLEASE JOIN INSPIRE PPG: The group needs people to help with these projects. If you are passionate about positive change we would love to hear from you. All ages, backgrounds and views are welcome. We believe that everyone has skills, knowledge or experience that can contribute towards patient care. Simply send an email to inspire health.ppg@gmail.com and also mention if you would like to contribute to any of the action areas. Thank you, Ian Anderson [Chair of Inspire PPG].

What’s on - Local Theatre Following his biggest ever tour last year and yet another sell‐out Fringe run this August, Ed Byrne, one of the UK’s finest observational comics embarks will be bringing his stand up show to The Winding Wheel Theatre on the 12th December. Join him as he takes a long hard look at himself and tries to decide if he has ANY traits that are worth passing on to his children. A TV household name, Ed has been seen on pretty much every TV programme in the UK including Mock The Week, Top Gear, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo (Host), The One Show, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure, Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay and most recently QI and The Pilgrimage. Ed will also be returning to The Winding Wheel on Friday 3rd July 2020.

Interviewer Jason Barlow chatted to Ed all about his new tour: Teetering on the brink of national treasure status, award‐winning comedian Ed Byrne enjoys worldwide acclaim for his stand‐up. Ed has parlayed his on‐stage success into a variety of notable television appearances but the Irishman is still best‐known and best appreciated for his stand‐up performances. A quarter of a century at the comedic coal‐face has equipped Ed with a highly evolved story‐telling ability and a silky mastery of his craft. Yet his wit, charm and self‐deprecatory observational humour is often underpinned by a consistently hilarious vitriol and sense of injustice at a world that seems to be spinning ever more rapidly out of control. Having recently hit a new peak with shows such as the sublime Spoiler Alert and reflective Outside, Looking In, which explored the minefield that is modern parenting and a generational sense of entitlement, Ed’s new show ‘If I’m Honest’ digs ever deeper into a father’s sense of responsibility, what it means to be a man in 2019, and whether he possesses any qualities whatsoever worth passing on to his two sons. Occasionally accused of whimsy, If I’m Honest is a show with a seriously steely core. Gender politics, for example, is something Ed readily engages with – deploying his customary comedic zeal. ‘I’ll admit that there are things where men get a raw deal,’ he says. ‘We have higher suicide rates, and we tend not to do well in divorces, but representation in action movies is not something we have an issue with.’ ‘The problem with men’s rights activists is that it’s not about speaking up for men’s rights, it’s about hating women. If you’re a men’s rights activist, you’re not going to care about the fact that there’s an all‐female Ghostbusters remake. That’s nothing to do with men’s rights or female entitlement. That’s everything to do with being, well, a whiny baby.’ As ever, Ed manages to provoke without being overly polemical, a balancing act that only someone of his huge experience can really pull off. ‘I did stuff about Trump and the Pizzagate right wing conspiracy,’ he says, ‘and a couple of the reviewers said, “Oh, I would have liked to have watched a whole show of this”. And I think, ‘well you might have, but the average person who comes to see me would not like to see that’. I like to make a point or get something off my chest, or perhaps I’m talking about something that’s been on my mind, but the majority of stuff is just to get laughs. ‘People who come to see me are not political activists necessarily, they’re regular folk. If you can make a point to them, in between 40

talking about your struggles with aging, or discussing your hernia operation or whatever it is, you can toss in something that does give people pause as regards to how men should share the household chores.’ The new show also takes his natural tendency towards self‐deprecation to unexpected extremes. ‘I do genuinely annoy myself,’ Ed concedes. ‘But the thing of your children being a reflection of you, gives you an opportunity to build something out of the best of yourself only for you to then see flashes of the worst of yourself in them. It’s a wake‐up call about your own behaviour.’ When I challenge him over the degree of self‐loathing he displays, he disagrees. ‘Self‐aggrandising humour is a lot harder to pull off than self‐deprecating humour,’ he insists. ‘A lot of people get really annoyed when Ricky Gervais is self‐congratulatory. I always find it very funny when he accepts awards and does so in the most big‐headed way possible. I think it’s a trickier type of humour to pull off, talking yourself up in that way. ‘So no, I don’t think I’m being massively hard on myself. The fact is when you’re the bloke who is standing on the stage with the microphone, commanding an audience’s attention, you’re in a very elevated position anyway.’ That said, If I’m Honest brilliantly elucidates the frustration that arrives in middle age – and lives up to its title. ‘I’m bored looking for things, I’m bored of trying to find stuff, because I can never find it, and it is entirely my fault,’ Ed says. ‘Nobody’s hiding my stuff from me. Although my wife did actually move my passport on one occasion’. Age, it seems, has not withered him. Especially now that he’s figured out how to head off ailments before they become a problem. ‘You see comics who are my age and older but are still retaining a level of “cool” and drawing a young crowd. I can’t deny that I’m quite envious of that. But there’s also something very satisfying about your audience growing old with you.’

Praise for Ed:

✭✭✭✭✭ “A masterful display of the comics art…This is a seamless and perfectly timed show that could stand proudly next to any Izzard, Bailey, Carr or Skinner stadium‐filler” SUNDAY TIMES ✭✭✭✭✭ “The hour is self‐deprecating, never self‐indulgent, and his packed audience are well entertained” SUNDAY EXPRESS ✭✭✭✭✭ “Hysterical … a must‐see show. My face still hurts from laughing so much” THE STUDENT NEWSPAPER.

Hasland Theatre Company Review

A Brief History of Women

By Alan Ayckbourn

Review written by guest reviewers Sue Ready & Eileen Bernacki.

11th – 16th November 2019 Hasland Playhouse. Directed by David Brooks. This play by Alan Ayckbourn is among the 100 that he has written. I came away feeling astounded at the number of unexpected twists and turns, likened to that of a rollercoaster that did not once dip! The show portrayed the advance of women from 1927 to 1987 and the gendered social cultural roles throughout. It captures the essence of women taking control and power back through privilege, class, and position and particularly using their own sexuality. Set seamlessly within four acts, six actors took on the gargantuan task with outstanding standards of acting of portraying the 21 different characters through the eras. The only constant throughout is one character that we initially meet in 1927 named Anthony Spates (Taylor Pope), who is significant to the full story. The location of the entire story is set at Kirkbridge Manor. Act 1 introduces a ‘Downton Abbey‐esque’ grand ball and engagement party that goes terribly wrong. Spates, the young servant, witnesses and bravely intervenes to prevent a very serious domestic abusive incident between Lord and Lady Kirkbridge. She explains that this is acceptable behaviour during this time. This act highlighted the class divide and culture which meant that the consequences rested with Spate, forcing him to leave. What is key in the first act is the exploitation of Spates’ youth and inexperience, as Lady Kirkbridge (Georgia Thomas) gives him ‘his first kiss’ which closed the first act with a gasp from the audience. Act 2 Moves into 1947 and Kirkbridge House is now an exclusive boarding school. We see young Spates once more in role as a Teacher who is intimate with fellow Teacher Ursula Brock (Jo Davies). We can clearly see she has been impacted by the terrors of World War II due to the loss of her fiancé, resulting in her erratic behaviour and ultimately her demise. Act 3 and we are now in 1967 at the Kirkbridge Arts Space where they are rehearsing for a panto. Dennis Dunbar (Dave Banks) drew us into a very unexpected audience participation of ‘oh no we don’ts’ and hilarious satirical comedy lines that had us howling. We see women in this era, particularly through Gillian Dunbar (Kathryn Hardy) really starting to flex their muscles in

Photographs by Graham Martin

a patriarchal society and becoming acutely aware that they no longer sit in the shadow of men. We also see the rise of the socialist male in 60s culture being rejected for their outspoken and socialist views through Rory Tudor (John Fox). This is also a very good time to mention the wonderful make‐up and costumes ‐ Spates aging process throughout was subtle but convincing given that we had such intimate spacing between audience and cast. Act 4 and Kirkbridge Manor has come full circle and transformed into a grand hotel in 1987. We see a very frail Spates as the retired General Manager of the hotel. The play ends with an unexpected meeting again with Lady Kirkbridge who is now 98 years old and has come to stay at the hotel. Her hotel bedroom was the study in Act 1 that she was forbidden to enter. It ends with them both reminiscing about their past lives, the grand ball and Spates first kiss. It was a very enjoyable evening, magnificently Directed by David Brooks, it was worthy of a West End stage performance. Congratulations to all involved. Next show: ‘The Anastasia Files’ - 13th to 18th January. All seats £10. Tel: 01246 272271 or visit: haslandtheatrecompany.co.uk

July 1918. Tsar Nicholas II and his young family are brutally executed by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg. Two years later in Berlin, a young woman is pulled from a canal following a failed suicide attempt and brought to a mental hospital. She remains there for many years and as doctors and the police puzzle over her identity, she slowly begins to reveal details about her past that lead those who attend her to believe that she may, in fact, be the Grand Duchess Anastasia, the heir to the Romanov fortune.

Art by Si

Hasland Magazine

There is a massive amount of diverse talent in Hasland, especially when it comes to art. Si Brown from Hasland has been designing album and EP covers, Logos, t‐shirt designs and posters for bands and record labels from all over the world for many years. Music lover Si first started to get involved in music band artwork when he began to draw posters for local music gigs in Chesterfield. He later lived in Derby and Birmingham and that is when work started to come in for bigger projects such as album covers, logos, t‐shirts and flyers. He was involved in the music scene that spawned bands like Napalm Death, Doom, ENT and Carcass and also played drums for various bands himself. Simon returned to Chesterfield briefly before living in Spain for a while painting murals and sign writing. After a chance meeting over there he ended up creating all of the artwork for the main supplier of merchandise to bars and clubs in the Costa del Sol. After moving back to Chesterfield he decided to return to art college to learn the basics of graphic and web design and over the last 14 years he has created work for bands, record labels, businesses, charities, pubs and clubs using his drawing skills combined with computer graphics. Although he also works for Royal Mail, Si is always on the lookout for graphic design work and his happy to chat to people about their design needs.

Changing seasons at Chatsworth By Scott Antcliffe

During the half term holidays I went for a stroll around Chatsworth with my wife, mother‐in‐law and one of our four border collies. Our first port of call was the wonderful farm shop at Pilsley. It was already stocked with a wide variety of Christmas gifts as well as an abundance of festive food and the added bonus of free taster samples of parkin in the Christmas marquee. The next stop in our Chatsworth jaunt was to the fabulous garden centre which is a five minute drive from the house itself. We parked in the garden centre car park and spent a small fortune inside on some lovely items. Rowan, our youngest collie, appreciated the free dog treat at the till from the ever‐friendly Blue Diamond staff. Parking for a day of strolling through the Chatsworth grounds is available at Carlton Leas car park (£3 all day). We wandered down the hill from the car park and walked along the River Derwent via the Bridge Farm entrance, which was festooned in Halloween decorations ready for the upcoming events. I was left to indulge in my photography at the weir by my ever patient wife, and our not so patient collie. At the side of the weir, I spotted an eager‐eyed heron who was scanning the river opportunistically for its next meal. I was hoping it would take flight so I could snap a quick shot, but it wasn’t to be as my feathered friend showed more patience than me. After a short while, I decided to go on the hunt for a few stag photos, armed with my trusty Nikon D750 and a staunch optimism to capture this skittish, elusive animal. With it being rutting season, I made sure to pack my long, zoom lens instead of a terrifying, shorter lens which would almost certainly have ended badly. Making my way across the fields, weaving through the vast array of trees, the striking ruby and gold tones stood out and drew my eye in amazement, briefly pondering, how lucky we are to have such a naturally beautiful place on our doorstep. A 1,000 acre heaven of stunning grounds surrounded by a 15 kilometre long dry stone wall. I soon spotted a lovely, male stag which prompted me to practise my best deer stalking, tip‐toeing skills in order to get as close to him as possible, without scaring him off. I snapped away in delight for a few seconds before my cover had been blown, so I then retreated and made my way to the rendezvous point to meet my wife and mother‐in‐law at Edensor Village. We called into the lovely, humble Edensor Tea Cottage‐situated opposite the church‐ for a spot of lunch. The hot roast pork cob with apple sauce, gravy and chips were to die for. The wide assortment of cake was a joy to behold, a sweet‐tooth lovers paradise. Feeling satisfied with bellies full of hearty food, we made our way back home to be greeted by a blazing hot fire and a cuppa. Bliss. 43
