Little Green Space We’ve kept hens for a few years now, and really enjoy their entertaining antics around the garden – and, of course, the supply of fresh, free-range eggs! We’ve just introduced four new birds to our flock, and were able to select from a wide choice of colourful hybrid hens at Marsh Green Farm, near Ashover (www.marshgreen Jennifer (Jen the Hen) is a Blue Haze hybrid, and has beautiful blue-grey feathers, while Rowan, a black and ginger Rhode Red, is incredibly friendly and comes running whenever we call. Lola is a Pied bird, with striking black and white plumage around her neck, and Amber is an Amber Star – mostly white, but with a scattering of brown feathers across her wings. All our birds lay brown

eggs, but we could have gone for something a bit different and chosen some Columbines. These hens, which have rather amusing pompoms on top of their heads, lay a spectrum of different-coloured eggs – from blue to green, and everything in between. A little care is needed when introducing new birds to an existing flock. It’s no good to just shove them all in together and hope for the best – they need time to get to know each other. So our new chickens were kept contained in their own separate house for a week – we put this in sight of the older hens, to give them a chance to get used to the newcomers. When we released the new hens there was a fair bit of pecking and squawking as the pecking order was established –

unsurprisingly Holly, our oldest bird, is still boss of the flock. But things settled down quickly, and now they are getting along just fine. Our new hens are just beginning to lay eggs, so we’ll soon have a ready supply for cakes, quiches and omelettes. Keep some hens It's easier than you might think to raise hens in your garden. Unless you are planning to raise your own hens from chicks, you will not need a cockerel, which can be very noisy and may upset your neighbours. Hybrids are the easiest birds for beginners – and can produce up to 300 eggs per year. Or you could do your bit for breed conservation and choose a pure breed such as Buff Sussex, Marans or Silkies. These will produce fewer eggs but are very attractive birds. Bantams are a good choice for smaller gardens and tend to be particularly docile — important if you have small children. It’s best to buy birds at point-of-lay: hens that are around 19 weeks old and just coming into egg-laying age. Books on keeping hens, such as Starting With Chickens by Katie Thear, are available from the library and can give you an idea of the level of commitment involved. You need to make sure the

birds are safe from foxes by shutting them into their house at dusk. They require fresh food and water and their house needs to be cleaned out regularly. If you go on holiday, you’ll have to arrange for a neighbour to pop round twice a day to let them out, shut them in, and check that they have enough to eat and drink. And collect the eggs, of course! An apple a day There’s been a bumper fruit harvest this year, and anyone lucky enough to have an apple tree or two in their garden or allotment may well find themselves with a surplus of apples.

HSBC STAFF TURN OUT FOR THEIR FRIENDS Sheffield HSBC staff recently swapped their comfy office in Griffin House for a blustery day outdoors in the Hope Valley helping to raise awareness of the Friends of the Peak District by delivering 4,000 leaflets door to door in the heart of the Peak District. HSBC provides all employees in the UK with one day’s annual leave entitlement to volunteer for the Bank’s national charities or their charity of choice. “We all wanted to get involved as we genuinely care for the Peak District countryside and we want to help protect it,” said HSBC staff co-ordinator, Caroline Surplice. Team members involved in the mail drop commented: “What rain? It was great to be outdoors for the day, although we’d forgotten how many steps and hills we’d have to climb! But it was less hilly than last year (we got Matlock!), we had a great day and the Eyam tea rooms are an excellent stopping point!” The Friends of the Peak District is the only charity dedicated to caring for and protecting the Peak District countryside. It is an area enjoyed by millions of visitors each year but remains vulnerable to damage and a number of threats. “We’re only a small charity,” said Friends Director, Andy Tickle, “and rely heavily on

volunteers to help us get our message across. This support from HSBC is fantastic and hugely appreciated.” “It feels good to be

involved in something close to home but very important for our local countryside,” said Caroline. “The people we met during our day were

all really friendly and very supportive of what we were doing. And the local cafes were wonderful too – which was another bonus!”

WYE AND UPPER DERWENT GROUP OF THE DERBYSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST – NEXT TALK: ‘YELLOWSTONE AND THE GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARKS’ The next illustrated talk in our series gives you the chance to leave those dark winter evenings behind and visit Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Parks in the USA with our speakers Wildlife Trust members Max and Christine Maughan. Yellowstone, one of the most famous national parks in the world, became a national park in 1872 due to the fact that it contained about half of the world’s geysers. This is because it’s a geologically dynamic area, much of which is an active super-volcano, last erupting about 640,000 years ago. Geysers are found there due to the volcanic activity, and oldest of these, ‘Old Faithful’ erupts about every 92 minutes. As well as this dramatic scenery there is big (literally) wildlife to be seen. Grizzly and black bears, 2 herds of bison, the vegetarian moose, and elk which are the commonest of these large mammals, live in Yellowstone along with many

others. Also the gray wolf is back after being reintroduced in 1995-6. Today there are about 300 wolves, and fortunately their primary prey is elk. Big birds include the bald eagle and trumpeter swans, along with many other smaller species. Grand Teton National Park which Max and Christine also visited lies only 10 miles south of Yellowstone. Both parks, along with the surrounding National Forests, make up the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact midlatitude ecosystems in the world today. Named after the main peak of the Teton Mountain Range, this national park which was established in 1929 has habitats varying from alpine tundra to spruce-fir forest to sagebrush flats to lots of lakes and rivers. Again those big mammals are found along with abundant birds, and due to the number of different habitats the flora is very varied.

Support, Reassurance and Exceptional Care in your own home

So do come along to this visually stunning talk on Monday 18 November at 7.30 pm at the Medway Centre, Bakewell to hear

about these BIG national parks. Admission is only £2.50, includes refreshments, and everyone is very welcome.

Jerusalem, and The Skye Boat Song form the centrepiece of the repertoire. For the forthcoming concert, which falls days before what would have been Benjamin Britten’s 100th birthday, these are combined with brand-new settings of some of Britten’s best-loved folksongs, including Greensleeves, The Water is Wide, and Early One Morning. Members of the group will also perform solo items – songs by both Britten and his contemporaries – and we will hear the choral piece Hymn to the Virgin, composed by Britten at the tender age of just 18, his first major choral work. Albion’s young, fresh choral tone and colourful approach will make this an evening of super sounds and discovery! The group’s composer and director Fraser Wilson says: “One of the things we hear the most from our audiences is that it’s a delight to hear familiar music sung in a new way – our songs strike a chord deep within people. When writing the arrangements I try to absorb the essence of the song and to reflect that in the final version, even though it might have a very different flavour to the original.” The fine acoustics of St John’s Church in Buxton, extensively used for the Fringe Festival every summer, will show the music off to excellent effect. It will be an evocative, beautiful evening, and the people of Buxton and beyond are warmly invited to discover the magic of Albion for themselves! To hear live recordings of these songs, go to nchoir St John’s Church, Buxton SK17 6XN. Tickets £10 / £5 (under 18s, students, seniors, unwaged).

Winster Local History Group has organised a talk by master-craftsman Will Noble on ‘Dry-Stone Walling and Traditional Vernacular Stone Building’. Will is a really interesting character. When he was aged 13 his father, a Yorkshire farmer, got him to quarry stone that he had come across while digging in the garden. Will dressed the blocks and built a wall that stands to this day. From these beginnings he progressed to be champion dry-stone waller, and his work can be seen in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield, and in field walls all over the country. He has also visited the USA several times to carry out commissions for the landscape sculptor and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy. Will is also a mastermason and has worked several times on commissions at the Chelsea Flower Show. His illustrated talk will also show some of

Pupils at Monyash Primary school will now be safer on the roads thanks to Specsavers in Buxton. The Spring Gardens optician has kitted out every child at the school with a high-visibility vest to keep them safe on the walk to and from school during the dark winter months. Tom Rhodes, store director at Specsavers Buxton, organised the partnership and presented the children with new vests at a visit to the store on Wednesday 16th October 2013. He says: ‘When the

clocks go back and the nights get darker, it becomes harder for drivers to see pedestrians. Children on their way to and from school are most at risk. We wanted to provide the pupils from Monyash Primary School with high-visibility vests to make them easier to be seen. It is vital that drivers keep a check on their eyesight and we recommend a test every two years. If you can’t remember the last time your eyes were tested it is well worth booking an appointment to ensure that

An intrepid team of fundraisers have taken on the challenge of a lifetime and conquered Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in Africa at 5896m. William Tudor Jones from Great Hucklow and Julia Procter and Sally Eyre, both from Dore, took on the challenge to raise much needed funds for Helen’s Trust. Their trip commenced on 27th September and lasted seven days. The


ascent was made up of a series of climbs and descents to prepare the climbers for the punishing effects of high altitude. “It was mentally and physically tough,” said William, a Helen’s Trust trustee, “the hardest thing I’ve ever done, without a doubt! The team was amazing though and we really kept each other going.” The team encountered extremes of temperature and a huge variety of terrain from rainforest to

glaciers and moorland to scree. The team camped each night, ate food prepared by the local porters, and enjoyed the massive, clear night skies. The final ascent began at midnight with limited time allowed at the summit due to the extreme altitude. “We’ve been training for this since January,” said Julia. “It’s such a huge achievement and so great to combine a wonderful experience with raising money for such an important local charity.”

To date the trio have raised over £11,000 and have received support from local businesses including Avant Garde in Baslow, Bird Stainless, ASAP and The Queen Anne Inn in Great Hucklow. “We are a small local charity and an amount such as this is incredibly significant to us,” said CEO, Heidi Megaughin. “This will help us to fulfil the ever increasing demand for our services across North Derbyshire and The High Peak.”

Inspired by William, Sally and Julia, Tom and Caroline Hamilton from Holmesfield will be taking on the Kilimanjaro challenge in February 2014. The charity has spaces available and if you are interested in joining the trek you should contact Helen Carr as soon as possible (helen.carr@helenstrust.

Fine craftsmanship & beautiful design Is this the heart of your home this season?

French folk band Loufolk were the stars of a grand party in Wirksworth celebrating twenty years of twinning. Loufolk travelled from Wirksworth’s French twin town of Die (pronounced dee) specially for the event held in Wirksworth’s town hall on 19th October. The original twinning charter was signed by mayors of Wirksworth and Die back in 1993 and this was followed with a similar agreement with Frankenau in Germany, creating a triangular partnership. This formal agreement has led to many hundreds of personal contacts. The sheer size and diversity of these contacts have been shown by the number of local people who have recorded their twinning memories in just twenty words. Twinning committee member Malcolm Kerry said: ‘We were just overwhelmed by the number of people who sent in their memories. Most are now on display in the library and in the display in St Mary’s Gate!’ Food for the evening was supplied by Christian Aid and Chair of the Twinning Association, Suzanne Clark said: ‘We are all delighted with the evening, everyone has worked so hard. Loufolk got us off to a great start and we were so pleased to welcome twinning officials from Die and Frankenau, Yvette Guillermet and Tristan Polter’ . Wirksworth Town Council maintains its active support of the twinning link and town Mayor, Ben Dew has been in contact with the mayor of Die expressing appreciation for the ongoing cooperation. Rob Gill from Wirksworth joined Loufolk on stage and also organised for group members Lucie, Max, Antoinette and Nicolas to play with local musicians in the Royal Oak on the following night. There has been a year of celebration activities which included a well dressing on the twinning themes, a display in the annual procession and a special tri-lingual cook book edited by Anna McGuire and Judith Hickman. Planning for the next twenty years The Twinning Association is now looking forward and is seeking ideas for future cultural and sporting links. Individuals and local groups interested in getting involved are most welcome to attend the open TwinningAGM at 7.30 on Friday 15th November at Waltham House. For more information about joining the twinning association contact JudiAustin 01629 822 240.

On 22 November, Matlock Music is celebrating its fiftieth year with a special concert featuring the Iuventus String Ensemble. The Ensemble was formed in 2010 as an expanded version of the renowned Iuventus Quartet, to allow for more imaginative programming. The Ensemble has performed in venues across the UK and abroad. Recent reviews have hailed the group’s performances as ‘startling’ and ‘spellbinding’. Regular Matlock concertgoers will recognise Ruth

Rogers (violin) and Katherine Jenkinson (cello) from recent visits with the Aquinas Piano Trio. The concert will open with Mendelssohn’s famous and much-loved Octet, opus 20. Written in 1825, when he was only 16, this is nevertheless ‘a mature and brilliant piece of music’. Indeed, it has been said that ‘its youthful verve, brilliance and perfection make it one of the miracles of nineteenth-century music’. Brahms’ Sextet No.1 follows, again a youthful work,

Geoff Kersey Visit

On the morning of Saturday 19th October, Geoff Kersey visited Matlock Artists Society to give a painting demonstration. This was an open event and enabled us to increase our usual numbers by inviting friends and advertising the event for a small entrance fee. The morning was well attended. Geoff enthusiastically demonstrated how to tackle a woodland scene and gave

us a lot of practical advice about composition, colour perspective, colour mixing and the importance of the paper quality and controlling the dampness of the paper. We all very much appreciated him sharing some of his expertise and producing such a lovely painting. The photograph shows Geoff with his painting and our chairman Val Fletcher and secretary Liz Chisnall.

to the flour mixture and stir well. Peel, core and finely chop the apples, then add them to the cake mixture. Finally add the diced stem ginger. Put the mixture into a large, lined cake tin and bake at 160°C for 50-60 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and firm to the touch.

Thermal Rating Register

It’s well known that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. And reaching for an apple, rather than a less healthy snack, really could help keep you well. Apples are full of anti-oxidants and vitamins, and are low in calories, high in fibre and virtually fat-free. With British apple season in full swing, there’s no better time to make sure you add an apple to your five-a-day list. And for really local apples, check out Farmer’s Markets in Bakewell, Buxton or Matlock – or buy from local food cooperative DE4 Food ( If you do find yourself with a glut of apples, stewing and freezing them is a great way to preserve them for the winter months ahead – you can also cook them, along with a little apple juice and brown sugar, in a slow cooker, which helps retain their shape and texture. Apple porridge is a welcome, warming start to a cold, autumn day. For two people, peel, core and dice two apples. Melt some butter in a saucepan and fry the apples until soft, then stir in a tablespoonful of brown sugar. Add 80g porridge oats and 500ml of milk, bring to the boil and simmer for five minutes. For a fruitful boost, throw in some raisins or sultanas – or spice things up by adding a teaspoonful of ground ginger or cinnamon. Don’t forget you can use apples in a whole host of savoury recipes, too. Apples are perfect with pork, of course, but can also be added to a chicken casserole along with cider and cream.

The children of Hartington C of E Primary School have begun their new academic year in a flurry of excitement with the introduction of a daily Breakfast Club. This has been met with great success as the children have enjoyed a range of cereals and toast to help start their school day. They have enjoyed being involved in the tradition of the making of the School Well with the theme this year being based upon the 100 year celebration of the Chelsea Flower Show. The completed Well was displayed in the village and blessed during another traditional celebration of the crowning of the Poppy Queen. During the day visitors and locals alike enjoyed the sunshine as they explored and investigated a variety of stalls, games and activities organised by Hartington School PTA and the Royal British Legion to ensure all who attended had a super Saturday.

ANTHONY GELL STUDENTS SET COURSE FOR SAILING SUCCESS A dozen students from Anthony Gell School in Wirksworth have gained sailing qualifications thanks to funding secured from ‘Sportivate’ by the Rural Derbyshire School Sport Partnership. The youngsters were awarded their RYA Stage 1 Certificates after completing the ‘Introduction to Sailing’ course. The course has been taught in six two-hour sessions over six weeks by qualified instructors at Carsington Sports and Leisure near Ashbourne. Holding his Youth Sailing Scheme log book, year 7 pupil Michael Rowlatt said, “We have learned how to turn with the rudder, and how to change speeds by pulling the rope attached to the sail and we’ve also been pushing the boat onto its front to either speed it up or slow it down.” Lucy Edenbrow in year 8, who has special educational needs, said: “I’m pleased to achieve this. I learned how to steer for the first time and I’ve started getting good at it as well. And I’ve been controlling the ropes on the sail. I want to do stage 2 now.” Lucy’s Mum Tina said: “I think it’s been fabulous. Lucy’s got special needs and it’s been credit to all the staff at Carsington that they’ve

managed to teach her level 1. She’s thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It’s given her lots of confidence and it has been a great social experience for her being part of a team. It’s been something she has looked forward to every week. It has definitely inspired her. She’s really upset we’re going into winter period and she can’t come regularly but she’s up for doing her level 2 next Easter.” Commenting on the Sportivate funding worth around £1,000 to help about 40 pupils to access the Learn to Sail course over the

academic year, secured by the RDSSP, Lucy’s Mum said, “It’s amazing. Without it to be fair I don’t think as a family we would have been able to afford a proper sailing course, so for us it’s opened up an opportunity especially for Lucy as well the other students from AG to give them a taster of this and hopefully once she’s got this ability we can come and hire at an hourly rate which will be cheaper for us.” Elliot Pursglove who was taking his Stage 2-3 said: “I’ve been tacking and jibbing round buoys and going really fast - it was lots of fun. I was

in a Pico and I’ve sailed the Anthony Gell Feva boat twice. The course will help me get into sailing and I’m hoping to do some more.” RDSSP Partnership Manager, Janice Price, who is based at Anthony Gell, said: “This Sportivate funding enables students to get a taste of a sport that many wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to try.” “We’re so proud that Ellen MacArthur is a former Anthony Gell Student. Who knows? Perhaps this course here at Carsington will inspire the next generation of world-class sailors.”

CRUK WALKING TREASURE HUNT The Matlock local committee of CRUK held a Walking Treasure Hunt around Starkholmes and into Matlock last month. It was very well organized by Alan and Trish Lambe, the weather was kind and a very enjoyable evening was had by everyone. The grand total of £177 was raised on the night. Thank you to all the

people who supported the event. The winners were Annette Lowe and Kath Hardmas. They are pictured with the organizer Trish Lambe. The White Lion Inn, which was the base, donated a meal for two for the winners. Thank you to everyone who participated.

What a start to the season, we had lost two coaches who had worked with the boys for a number of years, so it wasn’t looking good. After three weeks of searching, begging and leaving no stone unturned I am proud to say that we have found two new enthusiastic and experienced coaches to join our team. Zac Dann for our backs and Rob Adlington for our forwards, with the help of Phil Barrett we are now ready to take on the best! I have also been lucky enough to find people to sponsor the numbered shirts that the boys need to play in the junior league next season. Our aim now is to bring in more boys to strengthen our squad as next season we play with 15 players. A squad of 20 would be amazing (I can dream). If you are a year 7 and want to have a go at rugby or you play at school and would like to join a club, we train and play on the showground on Sunday mornings at 10.30am. Or for more information just give me a call. TERESA LAW 07974960209.


On behalf of Matlock Derwent Valley Lions Club, I should like to thank everybody who came to our Charity Auction held at Masson Mills on 17 October. We raised £1500 on the night and an announcement about the beneficiary will be made shortly. We would particularly like to thank Andrew, the auctioneer, who cajoled some amazing bids from people and, of course, everyone who very generously donated lots to be auctioned.

At the meeting held on Tuesday 29 October 2013 members took part in a team game of “True or False” prepared by David Stamp, the Club’s Programme Coordinator. The teams competed to choose the correct

definition of a series of words read out to them. Selecting in each case the right meaning of a word from a choice of three led to much discussion and head scratching in the groups as the words were, in most cases, extremely obscure

October has been a very busy month. At the end of September the depot was full of Aquaboxes ready to be sent to any disasters which may occur. Now the depot is nearly empty, we have sent the following Aquaboxes each with a family water filter to make sure everyone who receives a box can drink pure water. All these boxes are packed by volunteers and the filters are also made Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays by volunteers. During October we have

sent 1,500 boxes to Beirut in the Lebanon for the Syrian refugees and 500 to Turkey for the same refugees, 400 to Rwanda, 120 to Cameroon in Africa and 100 to Malawi. The last 100 were taken by the Gurkha Regiment to Kathmandu in Nepal. All volunteers who work very hard packing boxes with 62 items, and the teams who assemble filters out of 42 separate parts, deserve a very big thanks, as do all the Rotary Clubs along with all our friends who give donations to us support us.

Peak Advertiser 11th November 2013 – Page 13 Earlier this year Hathersage Brownies took part in the Giant Sleepover to raise funds for UNICEF. The Brownies met in the Bell Room then went for a walk up to Moorseats Hall and back. Along the way we filled two large juice bottles with water from the stream to demonstrate what less fortunate children their age have to go through every day. The Brownies all took their turn to carry the water and as the hill got steeper the bottles felt heavier. The Brownies soon realised they wouldn’t want to carry their water home every day. Back at the Bell Room, games were played followed by an evening meal and sleeping bags being put out. The Brownies collected sponsor money for the sleepover and in total £88 was raised for UNICEF.

Allwood Kitchens

At Allwood we are sure that the quality and price of our handmade solid wood furniture can not be beaten. A small team of expert craftsmen, led by a national award-winning designer, work directly with the customer, cutting out all unnecessary overheads and costs which usually inflate the price. It’s a fact that most


customers assume that genuinely handmade bespoke real wood furniture of our exceptional quality would simply be too expensive. A recent survey showed that many of the ‘standard chipboard ordinary’ kitchen suppliers, with their glossy brochures, commission based salesmen and huge overheads, were more


expensive than Allwood. Why have ‘ordinary’ when you can have the ‘WOW factor’ for the same price or less? For a stunning real wood genuinely handmade kitchen built to your own requirements give us a try. With our no obligation quote / design you might be surprised at what you can afford! 0800 731 7351.

Rowsley’s Peak Shopping Village has announced plans to host a regular Sunday Market and car boot sale at the premier shopping centre. With the first market and car boot sale planned to take place on Sunday November 17th there will be plenty on offer for shoppers looking for something interesting this Christmas. Working closely with Blue Dice Promotions and drawing on their extensive experience in organising local markets, the Peak Shopping Village management have created a unique event for their centre to sit alongside the existing facilities and retail offering. Stalls will be selling local produce, arts and crafts and seasonal goods within the village. Alongside the market, Sundays will also see the arrival of a regular hard standing car boot sale on a small area of the centre car park, offering visitors the chance to pick up a bargain or sell some of their quality, pre-owned items.As always at Peak Shopping Village, parking will be free for visitors with a small entry

Artist’s impression of the new Sunday Market at Peak Shopping Village charge of £1 per person for the market and car boot sale (under 12s are free). “The Sunday market and car boot will give us the chance to provide additional interest to the existing offering at Peak Shopping Village,” explained Richard Taylor, managing agent at Peak Shopping Village. “We

already have a unique mix, where nationally recognised names mingle with local independents and the addition of the market will complement this perfectly and allow smaller local producers to trade within the centre.” “Subject to planning we’re looking forward to welcoming our

new stall holders and opening the market on Sunday 17th November in time for shoppers looking to pick up something different this Christmas,” added Richard. For more information visit the Peak Shopping Village website: www.peakshoppingvillage. com

Scootering-crazy children from the village of Hathersage have been selected to take part in the National Lottery’s People’s Millions contest. If successful they will be awarded lottery funding to help build the skate park they desperately need. The ITV phone-in vote will take place on Tuesday 26th November as part of the National Lottery’s People Millions week. Two years ago a group of Hathersage youngsters started a campaign to have a skate park built in their village. They petitioned the Parish Council and approached the local media. This campaign continued but it was a slow and often frustrating process. Tragically on August Bank holiday of last year, one of the young boys died unexpectedly at home from Sudden Death Syndrome. Richard Hill was only 14, and

had spent the day at a Sheffield skate park with a group of his friends. Rick’s passing has left a massive hole in the lives of all those that knew and loved him. The campaign for a skate park in Hathersage Playing Field quickly became the focus this close-knit community desperately needed. Joe Allen, 15, Rick’s friend and one of the original campaigners said, “We all really wanted the

skate park, but I think Rick wanted it the most. There is just nowhere for us to skate locally. If we skate in Hathersage, in the car park or by the Doctors we get moved on by the police, so we have to travel to Sheffield, Chesterfield and even as far as Manchester to skate safely.” There have been countless fund-raising events for the skate park and Rick’s family have also kindly given a considerable

It’s great to see them outside and active on their scooters and bikes – they just need somewhere safe to do it.” The ITV programme on the 26th November will feature a short film about the Skate Park project. A film crew will be arriving in Hathersage shortly to make the film, starring the local children. Their project will be up against other deserving projects so the children desperately need your vote.

MILLER’S DALE & DISTRICT W.I. Miller’s Dale & District W.I. met in Litton Village Hall on October 9th in Litton Village Hall for their regular monthly meeting. Judy Cooper - our President welcomed all the Members and visitors and introduced The Speaker Sheila Dyson. Her topic was ‘Flight of the Thousand Eyes’; Sheila explained that, with 2 friends - also pilots - they undertook to fly a Cessna plane from England to Sydney, Australia. The purpose was

to raise money for ‘ORBIS’ - an international charity organisation that provides training and sets up services in the undeveloped countries for eye operations, cataracts etc. Every £20 donated pays for a cataract operation. Sheila told us of the journey the 3 of them had made with a commentary and showing slides. We all thoroughly enjoyed her visit and were very impressed by their achievements. Refreshments were then




served and we proceeded with the business meeting. Some of the Members had visited The Mosque in Sheffield. They were made very welcomed and really enjoyed their visit. All were impressed by the dedication of the religion to families and the additional education the children received. The Members then went on to The Botanical Gardens for lunch. The report was given by our Delegate who had





attended The Derbyshire Autumn Federation meeting which was held in Derby. We also discussed the Christmas lunch. Our yearly programme had been finalised for 2014 and would now only require any outings to be added. Members were reminded that The Annual Meeting takes place on November 13th and this will be followed by Cheese and Wine. There being no further business the meeting closed at 9.50pm.

Only three weeks to go until the BHF’s High Peak Winter Hike. With nearly 1,500 people dying from coronary heart disease each year in Derbyshire, the British Heart Foundation is urging people in the local community to lace up their walking boots on Sunday 17 November and

get behind the fight against the UK’s single biggest killer by taking part in the charity’s 19th annual High Peak Winter Hike. In 2012, 600 walkers took on the 17 mile trek and helped to raise over £46,000 for essential research to create a better future for so many - from babies born

with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease. This year, the BHF is aiming to raise almost double this amount with the help of local supporters. Whilst making every step count for the nation’s heart charity, walkers get to take in the beautiful winter

Matlock Luncheon Club’s members were very happy to meet again for the start of a new year of good meals and talks. It was a great beginning with an excellent lunch followed by Simon Gill speaking ’Of Dogs and Penguins’ in the Antarctic. The Golf Club had kindly produced lovely menus with pictures of huskies and penguins which were much appreciated, but Simon said the dogs illustrated were Siberian huskies, used as racing dogs, and had never been used in the Antarctic. This led into a history of animals used in Antarctic

exploration to pull sledges. Careful records of the dogs had been kept from the beginning and their breeding carefully supervised to produce good team leaders. In the 1970s mechanised sledges were introduced and the dogs no longer required for work. They were, however, an important recreational asset, as they provided the staff of the Antarctic bases with company and freetime activity, as they were keen to move and loved going for sledge rides. The dogs were fed on pemmican and seal meat. The latter was plentiful, but pretty unpleasant to prepare. Simon himself had been in charge of the dogs for the last two seasons before their removal in 1994 as a result of an international edict which required the removal of all non-indigenous species. The dogs had been a pleasure to have around and the puppies, beautifully illustrated on Simon’s slides, were a delight. Their removal to Britain, Canada

and other places was much regretted and sadly the dogs did not adapt to a new way of life. Simon then showed slides of other animals in the Antarctic: various species of seals and penguins. He assumed that his audience had seen the fabulous film ‘March of the Penguins’ and their amazing story. Finally, he passed round a scale model of a Nansen sledge he had made. He also recommended the book ‘Of Dogs and Men' edited by Kevin Walton and Rick

Atkinson for the full story of dog sledging in Antarctica. Annie Hall gave the vote of thanks, remarking that she wished men were like penguins in the way they care for their young. Sadly Colin Dexter, who was to speak at the next meeting, would be unable to come, so Anne Diamond will be the speaker. Cotton Grass Theatre presents an evening of literary wit and live jazz in support of Friends of the Peak District.


DERBYSHIRE DALES CHARITY SEEKS TWO TRUSTEES Darley Dale based Charity, First Taste, is looking for people who have an empathy and interest in the enhancement of care for frail older people living in care / nursing homes or attending day care centres to join their Board of Trustees. Iris Wagstaffe, First Taste’s Secretary, says “At First Taste our Trustees pay a vital and active role in the management and development of the Charity’s work. We currently have opportunity to recruit two Trustees and are keen to hear from anyone interested in enhancing the quality of life for frail, older people, many with dementia, using educational, creative arts orientated and meaningful stimulative activities, who would be interested in helping us further our work. Whilst specific qualifications are not required to be a trustee we are looking particularly for those who have publicity and media skills and have experience in researching and writing up of funding applications. An understanding and knowledge of adult care and health care services would be useful but not essential”. Trustees undertake the role on an unpaid, voluntary basis although out of pocket expenses are offered, and would be expected to attend Board Meetings four times per year as well as other working meetings and events. Anyone interested in learning more about becoming a First Taste Trustee should contact Iris Wagstaffe on 01629 733849.

At the following junction I crossed over a high ladder stile directly in front, being the first of a series of slightly awkward stiles leading down past Gotheredge Plantation to Stoke Ford, making this a rather unfriendly dog route. It would be nice if the Peak Park Authority could please replace them with nice little gates! The path down to Stoke Ford is simply divine with

covered by a sumptuous and textured counterpane of gold and bronze materials. Just a few yards before reaching Stoke Ford I turned left on a narrow path to walk upstream beside Bretton Brook, passing boughs and bushes drooping from the weight of ruby red berries and tree trunks coated in velvet moss. Bretton Clough is a deep sheltered valley, isolated and secluded from civilization. However, there are the remains of several ruined homesteads to show that years ago families eked out a living here from farming or working in local industries. Cockey Farm was the birthplace in 1750 of William Newton. Born the son of a carpenter, he acclaimed fame as a poet and became known as the ‘Minstrel of the Peak’. Not far away stood the holdings of Bretton Clough Twin Farms, individually known as Fairest Clough Farm and Hawley’s Farm. In 1893 a rabbit warren was created at Clough Farm by the lord of the manor of Abney. It was tenanted by a firm of London furriers and tie-makers known as the Jacob Brothers. Rabbits were bred here for the next forty years or so and evidently burrowed so much that they caused the slopes of shale to become unstable. Gotheredge Farm was built in the 17th century and in 1785 became the scene of a brutal murder involving a

Clough Farm. The villains were later caught and brought to justice. In 1745 it is said that farmers in Eyam drove their cattle into Bretton Clough to hide them from Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Highlanders who had invaded Derbyshire on their way south. Historical Bretton and its surrounding farmsteads was once a thriving community. Records show that at one time 22 children from this area attended school in nearby Great Hucklow. As well as farming, some of the residents would have been employed in local mines. As with Eyam, Bretton lost some of its inhabitants to the plague centuries ago, and there are said to be graves marked with little flat headstones somewhere in a field near to the Youth Hostel. There is a choice of routes out of the Clough leading up to Nether Bretton, some are mere paths, whilst others were access drives to farmsteads. The one I chose led me over a stream by means of a footbridge before ascending an old track and passing two memorial seats positioned to take advantage of the peace, tranquillity and extensive views. After a slip, slither and splodge along a very muddy section of path I popped out onto the hard tarmac surface of an easy to walk lane and made my way to

views that had now changed to Dark Peak vistas encompassing a skyline of dramatic Edges and high moors surrounding the Derwent and Hope Valleys, extending toward Kinder Scout in the distance. In the foreground was a geometric network of well-farmed fields taken in from the wilds, with Bretton Clough like a deep dark ravine dropping away to my side. Rich autumn colours all around gave the appearance that the landscape was

local man known as Blinker Bland who came to the farm late one night with accomplices and the intention of robbing the farmer of his savings. Unknown to them, the farmer had banked his money and to make matters worse he recognised Blinker as he ransacked his home. The farmer was subsequently hit over the head with a milking stool and fatally wounded. His wife ran for help to her neighbours, at Fairest

Bretton’s most famous and popular landmark, passing the remote Youth Hostel before emerging back to the side of the renowned Barrel Inn. Sally Mosley

There were lots of lovely owls, all made from different super Christmas fabrics, at

our October monthly meeting. We did enjoy making them with our old friend Heather Vickers, this time helped by her Mum at our “Crafty Christmas meeting”. Heather always comes up with another brilliant idea. It’s also a good opportunity for a natter whilst producing a super individual item with help on hand for any problems. Heather and her Mum were thanked by Tanya. The get-up-to-date session reminded members that our November 14th meeting is our AGM when we will need some new committee members and a representative for the Village Hall meetings. Our speaker that night is one of our own members, Joyce Steele. Her talk, ‘Recollections of a Country Registrar’ sounds interesting.

With winter fast approaching, I wanted to sample some autumn scenery and trees in their best golden livery before gales strip them away to become mulch beneath my feet, and so I headed for an area rich with deciduous trees and vast beds of bracken. I started my walk at the tiny hilltop hamlet of Bretton, parking with care and consideration at the roadside not far from the pub, but away from designated customer parking areas. The views from this elevated hostelry over limestone uplands are stupendous and breathtaking. Also taking my breath away that day was a cold wind that swept over the Peaks in an almost wintry blast, making my eyes water and tears roll down my cheeks. It’s a very long straight road towards the summit of Sir William Hill, once part of the Buxton to Grindleford turnpike road which reached a dizzy height of over 1,400 feet. Rather surprisingly this was the setting a hundred or so years ago for an annual fair with donkey races and a sheep roast. There was also a foot race along this road involving a ram that was covered with soft soap to make it slippery and the runners had to catch it as it raced in Grindleford direction. After about a quarter of a mile I came across the first of several memorials, this one being a plaque on the wall to my right in memory of Harold Farmer. Almost opposite this I turned down a grassy track with deep ruts that due to recent

carpets, furniture and bedding, just waiting for you to turn on your central heating – it’s like Spring all over again for fleas, and within days you can have an itchy, scratching pet again. This is why it is important to keep your regular flea treatments going all year round, but what are your choices? There are shampoos, collars, sprays and powders, but many of these have been around for a long time

and by and large have been superseded by newer and more efficient products. There are some very effective tablets on the market now but the problem with these is that you have to persuade your pet to take them. By far the easiest method of flea control is using a ‘spot-on’ product. These are applied to the skin on the back of the neck but be aware that they are not all the same. If you read the packaging carefully many that are bought over the counter in shops only claim to “repel” fleas – not to “kill” them, and most say that the treatments will last for “UP TO” and not “FOR” a given period. It is also extremely important to note that some flea products for dogs will actually kill cats, so extreme caution is needed to make sure you have the right one. By far the best approach is to ask your vet, he or she will be able to advise which is the best flea treatment for your particular pet. Regular treatments will stop the build up of these pests in your house, and the whole family (including your pets) can have an itch free winter.

raising the standard for cat accommodation and care. We work very hard to ensure our high standards do not falter. Each guest has their own diet catered for, with plenty of grooming and attention as standard. Your precious pet will love their vacation as you enjoy your own holiday, ensuring you return to a calm, coddled cat. The impressive “L” shaped limestone cattery is built and furnished above and beyond the required standards set by International Cat Care

(formerly the Feline Advisory Bureau – FAB), the benchmark for all great catteries; Kool for Cats is one of only three catteries in the whole county registered with FAB. Feel free to contact us by phone or email to arrange a viewing, and you’ll see that we are not an ordinary cattery. Take advantage of our special offer, only available to Peak Advertiser readers. When you next go on holiday, ensure your cat has one of its own with Kool for Cats: The cattery with style.

We are a caring voluntary group set up to offer sanctuary to all cats in need of a home. In most cases adopting from us gives our cats a chance of a better life with a caring owner. Not all our cats have been brought in as strays or victims of cruel treatment, often a change in circumstance, the breakdown of a relationship or the death of an elderly owner can be the reason our cats are looking for a new home. The new owner is expected to make some contribution towards the upkeep of the Sanctuary, when they take a cat, particularly if we have had to pay for neutering or vaccination.

ARE YOU HAVING A CLEAR OUT AND NEED TO DE-CLUTTER? If you have any items of brica-brac, clothes, books etc we would be pleased to take them to sell at our coffee mornings and garage sales held during the year. All the money raised will help to pay vet bills such as neutering and vaccinations and the cost of running the sanctuary. We are unable to collect items but would be grateful if you could bring them to the sanctuary. Dorothy from Dove Cat Rescue says “Cat rescue has hit a crisis level. In all of the 30 years I have been rescuing cats, I have never known it to be so bad. We are having to turn people away on a daily basis all very

desperate not knowing where to turn to next. Recently in the course of a day, I was asked to take in 2 kittens from vets in Derby, 2 pregnant cats from Oldham and a young cat in Hazel Grove. Very few people are coming forward to re-home cats and some have been with us for over 12months. The cost of keeping these cats is rising all the time with heating, vet bills, food and litter being our main outlay. This year to house the cats to a high standard, we have spent many thousands of pounds replacing a wooden building that had served us well for 27 years”. Contact Dorothy on 01298 816200 if you can offer one of our many cats a good home.

Carrick Veterinary Group Routine healthcare for your pet is important whether you own a dog, cat or rabbit. Pets should be vaccinated to prevent serious disease as well as treated regularly for fleas and worms, to prevent them becoming poorly. An adequate diet and regular exercise should be provided to prevent your pet from putting on weight. Healthy Pet Club is a tailored scheme offered to cats, dogs, kittens, puppies and rabbits, saving you money. The scheme helps spread the cost of vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and microchipping. It also provides discounts on other services; prices start from only £9.99 per month. We also offer advice on routine healthcare whether you are a member of our Healthy Pet Club or not. We can advise on which flea

and worming treatments to use when, weigh your pet to make sure they are receiving the correct dose and advise on procedures such as neutering.

Hope Valley Veterinary Clinic At HopeValleyVeterinary Clinic in Hathersage, the team of vets and nurses have been preparing for issues commonly seen during the autumn season. Despite the cooler weather, fleas are still a problem for many pets at this time of year and owners should continue to check for their presence. Ticks are also particularly active in the autumn months, living in long grass and woodland areas. They will crawl onto a passing pet and firmly attach themselves, feeding on their blood. Worse still they can also spread diseases such as Lyme disease and Babesiosis. Harvest mites are also active in long grass, swarming onto passing pets where they tend to congregate on the ears, eyelids, feet and underside of the abdomen. They can be identified as bright orange dots which adhere tightly to the skin and usually cause irritation. Please

contact the practice if you need advice or preventative treatment for these pests. Car users at this time of year often check their antifreeze levels. Anti-freeze is

palatable to your pet and they may drink it if left lying around or spilt on the floor. This can result in kidney failure and often death as it is extremely poisonous.

Another hazard to avoid is autumn fruit such as fallen apples, conkers etc. These can cause digestive problems and should be avoided. If you haven't had your pet vaccinated or are overdue a booster treatment, please make an appointment to ensure that they are fully up to date. Regular vaccinations will ensure that your pet is protected against a range of infectious diseases such as feline enteritis virus or parvovirus in dogs. In particular take care to ensure that rabbits are vaccinated against myxomatosis andVHD as they are fatal illnesses. Please contact a member of the team if you wish to register with us or to make an appointment on 01433 651718. Our vet and nursing team provide a 24 hour service, so you can rest assured that your pet will receive treatment in an emergency.

Christmas presents that could save the lives of local car drivers and motor-cyclists of all ages are now available throughout the Matlock area and the Hope Valley. For just £20, Matlock (Derwent and Hope Valleys) group of Advanced Motorists will carry out a driving or riding assessment and offer up to four hours advice and one-toone training on the road to improve a candidate’s ability and safety. All training is done in the candidate’s own car in two or three separate sessions at convenient times. “With winter approaching and driving conditions becoming more hazardous, the Drive Check scheme would make an ideal Christmas present for anyone using the roads. It’s a cheap but a very effective way of improving road safety for any motorist,” said former police driver and now group chief observer Bill Storey. There are extra benefits for anyone living in the Derbyshire Dales. Thanks to the District Council, Dales residents who are 26 years and under will have the fee paid for them. Last year the Group offered a similar scheme specifically for older drivers, and over 70 took up the offer. “Everyone told us how helpful the programme was,” said Bill. “For many, it simply confirmed they were still capable of driving safely on our roads but with the advice and updated skills they acquired, their confidence increased no end.” Anyone who subsequently decides to take the full advanced driving course will have the £20 refunded. The full course is being offered at a special price of £125 in the run-up to Christmas which includes 12 months membership of the Institute, the test fee and training manual. Further information on the two schemes is available from Bill on 01629 812732 or by email to

A few of us may be inclined to mutter that Christmas is ‘all about eating and drinking’ – a viewpoint which is inclined to surface only after celebrating rather too well. Generosity in food and drink always upholds the tradition of seasonal largesse, once the prerogative of the well-todo. Three centuries ago and more, ‘not the meanest beggar’ was ever

turned away hungry from Haddon Hall over the 12 days of Christmas. Whole sheep and oxen were roasted daily and true mince pies – filled with minced mutton – were baked by the hundred. One of the greatest Haddon Hall New Year feasts on record was the extraordinary celebration held on 4 January 1799. The 5th Duke of Rutland had come of age and

although he and 70 personal friends dined separately, a massive oneday feast was laid on in the banqueting hall for 250 tenants. Absolutely anybody who called at Haddon was invited to share in a stand-up meal; ten thousand guests supposedly took up the invitation. Four oxen and 16 fat sheep were roasted and served with 40 hogsheads (over 2,000 gallons) of ale. The oxen and sheep cost £50, with a further £60 spent on flour, groceries, oatmeal and bread. The enormous sum of £135 was spent on ale plus £112 on wines and spirits. Commented His Grace’s steward afterwards: ‘I believe all who wished to be drunk were so, which comprised a considerable number!’ King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, while guests of the 8th Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth, were once taken to dine at Haddon on a peacock pie banquet. Of course Chatsworth itself was no stranger to good food. The 5th Duke once received a very imaginative Boxing Day pie from a friend – but this was no ordinary pie. Its enormous crust enveloped the meat of plump turkeys, pheasants, partridge, woodcock, plovers, snipe and a hare. There was more than

enough to feed the Duke and all his family, with sufficient leftovers to be shared amongst the outdoor servants for their supper. … and wine in abundance Peaklanders never needed much of an excuse to eat like royalty themselves. In January 1863, historian Llewellyn Jewitt of Winster, having somewhat overdone it, wrote a bemused entry in his diary referring to a three-day sale at Glutton, near Hartington: ‘A capital sale, but the quantity eaten and drunk by the farmers, etc., is terrible. Two rounds of beef and a lamb gone in no time. Six eighteen-gallon barrels of ale, ten gallons of gin, and brandy and wine in abundance, besides two strikes of potatoes and loads of bread – all gone! The house literally eaten out. I am very ill, and have been quite unable to get about.’ A truly mouth-watering description of a family Christmas dinner survives in a letter written by D.H. Lawrence to Katherine Mansfield in 1918. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda, were then living at Mountain Cottage, Middleton by Wirksworth and on Christmas morning the couple left to have dinner with Lawrence’s sister a few miles away. Wrote Lawrence: ‘My God, what masses of food here,

After the busy summer activities we were cheerful to meet together again on old ground. Between the odd deluge of rain we have certainly been having a season of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ and we’ve had no trouble getting to our meetings. CONSIDERING OUR ‘HEALTH AND WELL BEING’ We don’t need any encouragement to find ways of improving this so in September we welcomed Jo Dall, Matlock based Kinesiologist. She talked to us about ways in which we could improve our body awareness in order to address various conditions. Her work is applicable across a wide age range. AN EARLY ENCOURAGEMENT TO PLAN SOME ‘CHRISTMAS IN THE DALES’ Despite the October warmth we had an early trip down Andy Firth’s memory lane from Derbyshire to The Yorkshire Dales. His talk took us on a nostalgic word and photographic journey to many different kinds of old Autumn and Christmas traditional events. During

the journey he took us on Andy reminded us of the many rich Northern winter traditions of such things as Haworth Christmas lights and the Holly Queen p r o c e s s i o n , Knaresborough’s Edwardian


Do you have a bit of time to spare? then why not call in to a local blood donor session and donate blood. NHS Blood and Transplant works hard to run an efficient service and collect as much blood as possible at every donation session, so if you live near a session, why not help save lives? The demand for blood is never ending and hospitals in England and North Wales need 7,000 units of blood every day so every blood donor at every session counts. Blood donor sessions now have space for more

donors and we are encouraging people to book appointments or walk in to these sessions if they have a spare moment. Giving blood is easy to do and takes around an hour. One donation can potentially save the lives of up to three people. Donated blood is not only used in accident and emergency situations but also for patients undergoing surgery and receiving treatment for cancer and other blood diseases. Holly Mason, Lead Donor Relations Manager at NHS Blood and Transplant, said:

“We welcome new and existing donors to give blood and we will do our best to ensure that everyone that wants to donate is seen as quickly as possible. Sometimes there may be a short wait as the number of donors that turn up can’t be predicted in advance and the last hour can be particularly busy. If you can free up some time in your busy schedule to help those who vitally need a blood transfusion then please come along to a session. “There are donor sessions held all over, so

residents should be able to get to one at a time convenient for them. By donating blood you can help us keep the stock levels stable as we approach the colder months.” First time donors should be aged between 17-65, weighing at least 50 kg (7 stone 12lbs) and in general good health. There is no upper age limit for donors who have donated in the last two years. For more information or to book an appointment visit or contact 0300 123 23 23.

DERBYSHIRE FEDERATION of WIs DEVONSHIRE GROUP AUTUMN 2013 MEETING This year it was Eyam WI’s turn and pleasure to host our fellow local WIs at our annual Autumn Devonshire Group meeting.

Children completing Wirksworth Swimming Pool’s “Learn to Swim” programme receive rewards donated by local businesses. The very first ten children completing Wirksworth Swimming Pool’s “Learn to Swim” programme had more than one reason to celebrate this month. Thanks to the generosity of local businesses the children each received a set of rewards worth over £40.00 in recognition of their efforts. The rewards, which the pool plans to offer to every child completing its full “Learn to Swim” programme, consist of an adult and child ticket for the Northern Lights Cinema in Wirksworth, a horse riding experience or family pass to Matlock Farm Park and a climbing experience at Alter Rock in Derby. The children also receive a photo keepsake and appear on the “Wall of Honour” at the pool.

Jack Webster the first child to complete the Learn to Swim Programme and receive the reward package since the pool transferred to community ownership Pool Manager, Glyn stroke perfection in front Booth, said: and back crawl and breast “Congratulations to the first stroke. children completing our I’d also like to sincerely learn to swim programme. thank our business We are delighted with their supporters. It is fantastic progress demonstrating that, with their help, we can

give rewards of real value to celebrate a child’s success. It was also heart-warming when Northern Lights Cinema gave Jack Webster, the first ever child finishing our programme, the added bonus of selecting a film to be shown at the cinema. I’m proud to say Wirksworth pool is establishing a growing reputation for quality swimming lessons and the rewards package is a great motivator to our pupils. In the forthcoming term, we will surpass 290 learners, double the amount of pupils inherited when the pool passed into community ownership back in April 2012, so it seems we’re getting something right.” For more information on Wirksworth Swimming Pool’s “Learn to Swim” programme visit www.wirksworthswimmingp or call 01629 825704 for class timetables and availability.

A challenge more often faced by the removal of garden sculptures and grand pianos confronted Sheffield Auction Gallery’s specialist Models & Toys team, following a call to see a collection in North Derbyshire recently. Over a number of decades, the lifetime passion in the rear garden of a period terraced cottage a workshop of lathes, milling machines and equipment had been gathered and a collection of live steam models built and collected. Over the years the cottage was altered, a new workshop built and machinery hauled in – but, as can often be the case in such circumstances, no thought was ever given that one day it may all have to be moved out! Sheffield Auction Gallery’s Specialist Live Steam Valuer, John Morgan, who was the first to visit commented “When I first saw the collection my thoughts were two fold; How wonderful! Immediately followed by how are we going to get it out?! With steep steps, 90 degree turns, narrow passage ways and doors to negotiate”. Never daunted by a challenge the answer

was specialist contractors, although even they could not save the largest lathes from the breakers! The 4 inch scale scratch built live steam model of a traction engine, named “Mary”, at almost 135cm in length was the leading item among live steam locomotives, smaller traction engines, stationary engines and associated items. As is usually the case with such collections items range in finish from part built to complete and with price estimates ranging

Eddie Hallam is known nationally as an outstanding sculptor of wildlife subjects which are cast in bronze. During November he will be holding one of his yearly exhibitions at his home in the hamlet of Riber, near Matlock. Eddie is not only a sculptor, but also a biology graduate, an award winning nature reserve warden, and a former wildlife park director. First and foremost, however, he is an active and passionate wildlife conservationist. He has been described as a “typical, oldstyle countryman with a deep understanding of the ways of the countryside”. He is friendly and affable and has a wealth of stories and anecdotes resulting from a

lifetime of wildlife watching. It will therefore come as no surprise that the subjects of Eddie’s sculptures are local and national birds and animals. The starting point for all of his bronzes are sketches made from life, in all types of weather, and in some of the most remote parts of Britain. All of the sculptures, which include puffins, gannets, wrens, hares, otters and a great many more, are life-size and in limited editions of 30. Eddie will be will be giving talks and sculpture demonstrations during the course of the exhibition which runs from 16th November – 24th November and is open from 10am-5pm daily at Greenways Farm, Riber.

SEASON ENDS ON A HIGH Former Lady Manners pupil, event rider Bert Bolton, finished third in an incredibly strong field at the CCI2* National Under 21 Championships at Weston Park International Horse Trials recently. This was the culmination of a couple of years of hard work and determination, featuring a mix of success and disappointment, inevitable in this sport as horses are often injured and out of action for extended periods. Bert has been challenging for a spot in the National Team over recent years and regularly competes at the local Chatsworth event. He is intent on making a career of riding professionally and will soon be moving from his current base above Curbar to become a working pupil with the current British National Champion, Oliver Townend who runs a yard of 50 horses over in Shropshire. After gaining invaluable experience, Bert hopes to start his own competition yard locally, so for anyone who’d rather not jump these massive jumps themselves but who wish to consider a different route to the olympics through owning a horse, Rio is a little too soon Tokyo 2020 is not unrealistic!

MILNER OFF ROAD LTD Due to recent staff changes, Rowsley PreSchool are recruiting new Staff members to help maintain and build upon the high standards and the family ethos of the community based PreSchool. This exciting new era offers a unique opportunity to become involved in the future success and continuation of this essential community facility. Rowsley Pre-School was set up in 1985 by parents in the Village. It has progressed year upon year to become a very well respected Pre-School, which some parents travel several miles to bring their children to. The PreSchool is housed within the rooms of the Village Hall, caring for children

from two years to four years of age. There are many opportunities for both indoor and outdoor play in this bright and welcoming setting. Community links are strongly supported, and the Pre-School has an extraordinary relationship with Rowsley C of E Primary School. The PreSchool and School children share the same dinner hall at lunchtime and regularly visit the local wood for Forestry School and storytelling sessions. This helps the Pre-School children develop a relationship with both the children and teachers at their local school, hopefully breaking down the barriers which are so often faced with the transition from Pre-

School to Primary Education. The Pre-School is Charity run and are keen to encourage community involvement wherever appropriate. If you are a local business and feel you could make a donation, to help with the upkeep of play equipment etc, we would love to hear from you. The Committee would welcome members who would like to support this fantastic indispensable establishment. Committee Members don't have to be Parents or Grandparents, you could be a member of the community who simply cares about the continuation of this exceptional institution. Please get involved, contact Kate on 07960 01

09 24 or email rowsleypreschool@gmail. for a highly rewarding opportunity to become part of an exciting and promising future.

R.N.L.I. COFFEE MORNING Recently on a very wet Saturday morning we held a coffee morning to raise money for the men and women who bravely give their time to helping save lives at sea. Our very loyal supporters raised over £500 and we want to thank them for their support. Also a big thank you to Mrs R. Wright, our hostess for the morning.

When I write I won’t change Day, into night Black, into white Wrong into right I might have Little insight Into the meaning Of life - but I try with My pen to make Some sense of it. And when my relay’s run And my race is done, Like a baton Passed through time Of poets and eternal rhyme Someone will In vain reach For a pen Then with word And script try Again To make some sense of it.

I am a creature of habit – albeit with a forgetful streak – and if I’m totally honest, the older I get the worse I become at adapting to change. I’m sometimes knocked off kilter when Coronation Street comes on half an hour early to accommodate the football, or the window cleaner props his ladders up to the house a couple of hours before his normal time! So you can imagine the tizzy I got myself into when the Council decided, not only to change practically everything about their bin collections, but to also change the day they visited my door! Years ago – “the ghost of cycling past” was getting on your bike and doing a steady lap around Carsington Reservoir and using that maxim I guess recycling must have been something I never did – riding around it twice! The only occasions when I could be described as “green” were after far too much liebfraumilch or a dodgy cheese sandwich, but now it’s something we all aspire to be! Everything has changed. I realise, of course, that recycling is a good thing. At work each day I proudly use a Derbyshire County Council pencil, handed to me at some event or other, which is made almost entirely from reclaimed plastic drinking cups, and I’m reliably informed that one of my favourite necklaces was a milk carton in a former life. It doesn’t end there! I’m careful, when I visit the shops, to keep a stash of carrier bags about my person, so as not to add to the growing mountain of them being ploughed into the ground – presumably

those that are in there will stay forever unless the next generation “the ghost of recycling future” comes up with some imaginative use for the things and digs them all up again. Of course, some of the supermarkets are catching on to the need to be green too, one in particular has, for some years, been giving us biodegradable bags... they’re a great invention which, after about a year, simply rot away to a pile of dust.... no prizes for guessing which bags I stored dozens of books in (now very “dusty” books) a couple of years ago! But let’s get back to the bin collections. I had just about sorted out in my mind what went where when we only had the two bins to deal with, then along came bin number three accompanied by a dinky little kitchen caddy and a sort of bucket to transfer its contents to - and to make matters even more complicated it was then that the Council deemed it necessary to swap collections to a different day. There were sleepless nights a-plenty around that time, I can tell you. Another thing happened at the same sort of time... I became aware of the hint of a sound, deep into the night whilst I lay awake worrying about how to remove the plastic handles from my washing powder boxes or the plastic spouts from fresh orange cartons. This barely audible rustling was only ever in the early hours just before the bins were collected. Not a sound I’d heard before – it was almost imperceptible – but it was there alright. However, next morning, nothing was ever moved or missing and I got used to it and eventually, once I’d come

to terms with separating slices of half eaten chicken and leek pie and furry carrots from last month’s copy of the Peak Advertiser I started sleeping well again and forgot all about it. I still get a bit confused – they tell me you should put shredded paper on the top of cardboard... but what if my shredded waste paper basket is full long before collection day and it all gets mixed in? And worse still, what if I don’t have any shredded paper to put on top of the cardboard at the allotted time – do I have to shred something I actually wanted to keep? Then there’s the garden waste – all I’ve got is a courtyard with a few tubs and half a dozen climbing plants, they fill the bin when I do my winter clearout but what should I do for the rest of the year? A friend has suggested planting some vigorously growing weeds in a couple of tubs so at least there’s something to put in every month. There’s another thing too, something which has struck me since we have been separating out our bits and pieces – and that’s just exactly how much food waste we generate, which brings with it all sorts of other issues – should I try to eat up everything that’s in the fridge and the pantry before it gets past its best, surely that would make me even fatter and that’s never a good thing. I suppose the answer could be to buy less... but I’m only just coming to terms with my brood having flown the nest, stopping buying enough food to feed them and all their friends and acquaintances isn’t something I’m going to be able to do overnight!

So I’m trying my very best to get it right, and as luck would have it, it appears that a good friend of ours is somewhat of a recycling expert... his tip for dealing with oversized cardboard boxes is to leave them out in the rain, after even a light shower they will fold down to any size you want and fit in the bin. Similarly, at his suggestion, I’m now leaving the empty washing powder boxes out to get wet – then the plastic pulls off easily – brilliant! I’m not quite so sure about storing shredded paper waste in the biodegradable supermarket bags until the exact moment that they are about to disintegrate – then placing them atop the wet cardboard which will absorb the dust and hey presto! (But I’m considering it!). What I do wonder though is if I have solved the puzzle of the mystery noises in the night...This friend, the recycling guru, tells me he feels that it’s his duty to fill the family bins, he’ll be weeding at midnight if there’s a gap in the green bin or transferring egg shells and fish bones at dawn to fill his food waste container. But what about his blue bin, the container for paper and cardboard? What does he do if that’s below the “fill to here” level? I’ve begun to wonder, after I’d heard those tiny little noises in the night, should I have lifted the bluebin lid and checked inside... because I think it a distinct possibility that the noises I’d heard were “the ghost of recycling present” making sure he’d got plenty to put in his bin – even if it was at the expense of mine! ©Jean Goodwin October 2013

A tale of murder, bombs and intrigue is to be performed in Tideswell Church. On Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th November Tideswell Community Players perform The Stirrings in Sheffield on Saturday Night. This exciting play with songs, written by Alan Cullen, is set in Victorian Sheffield and based on the true story of the Sheffield Outrages, when workers and management clashed violently over new ways of working. It tells the intriguing story of William Broadhead, who orchestrated attacks on people who did not support the cause, his downfall and eventual trial. The play uses different styles of theatre including drama, comedy, music hall, monologue, and traditional folk song and dance. The staging uses fully the magnificent and atmospheric setting of the medieval church known as The Cathedral of The Peak. The play has a very large cast of all ages, also featuring local musicians and singers. If you live locally, chance is you’ll know at least one adult or young person involved in the play. Performed

YOU MIGHT AS WELL LIVE An evening with Dorothy Parker - Written and directed by David Fredrickson featuring the Steve Salfield Trio with Susan Daniel as Dorothy Parker

A show featuring the words, wisdom and wisecracks of one of America’s foremost jazz age writers. Dorothy Parker’s short stories and journalism are characterised by rapier wit and her poems by melancholy and aching vulnerability. Her pen often upset the literary

establishment and provided an acerbic commentary on life in inter-war America. She was active in cultural politics on the west coast, setting up the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League and (with Lillian Hellmann and Dashiel Hammett) the Screenwriters’ Guild. She also visited and wrote about Spain during the Civil War, supporting the efforts of the Republican Government to provide basic education for their people. Of course, she ended up on Senator McCarthy’s Hollywood blacklist which, she said, severely curtailed her

earning power. But it didn't stop her telling it like she thought it was. She was a very rude and very funny lady. Mrs Parker will be accompanied on stage by the Steve Salfield Trio playing the music of the twenties and thirties. She will fill you in on her life, her loves and her views on the writers and cultural icons of her day. Thornbridge Hall, Ashford-in-the-Water, DE45 1NZ. Friday November 15th at 8pm. Tickets: £12 from or 07920 755435.

Customers most asked question, “Why do my straps slip off my shoulders”? The most obvious answer would be to avoid the bras that have the straps set wide apart, almost set to the side of the bust. But the real solution lies elsewhere, most likely to be posture. Standing straight with shoulders back helps (try looking in the mirror, this will show you what

happens). There are people with sloping shoulders and the only think I can advise is double sided sellotape, put some on your should then place your strap on this problem solved, unless you are in the wrong size bra, then you need to come and be checked. Thinking of Christmas presents? Think lingerie. Regards Sue

A visit to Healthy Hearing made all the difference to Chris and his grandchildren!

take them home to try and that’s when I really noticed just how bad my hearing had become, and that’s when you just realise what little things you miss! Emma my granddaughter singing to herself, and Charlie, my grandson, giggling at the TV. It’s nice to know I’m not missing anything anymore.”
