Little Green Space Fruit growers will be rubbing their hands together with glee this autumn, as the fruit harvest promises to be one of the most abundant for years. The past few months have offered near-perfect growing conditions for fruit, with long, sunny days producing branches laden with apples, plums, damsons and blackberries. The warm weather followed what was one of the wettest winters and coldest springs on record. So after 2012’s dismal harvest – when British fruit production was down by as much as 50 per cent – many farmers and gardeners will be heaving a sigh of relief. The bumper harvests are great news for wildlife, too. After a succession of autumns with poor fruit yields, many birds and mammals will be enjoying a

fruitful feast through the coming months. Food For Free Most people like to get something for nothing, and autumn is a great time for getting out into the Peakland countryside and taking advantage of nature’s harvest. Many foraged fruits can be eaten fresh – raw, or cooked and served in pies and puddings. But to cope with a glut such as the one we’re seeing this year, it really pays to get preserving. Jams, jellies and chutneys are all easy to make. And if you like a tipple, many hedgerow fruits can be turned into liqueurs – sloe gin, crab apple vodka and blackberry whiskey, for example. If you’ve never tried making preserves before, it’s a good idea to invest in

a decent book. Preserves: River Cottage Handbook No.2 by Pam Corbin has lots of easy-to-follow recipes, and will clearly guide you through the basics of sterilising and storing. Blackberries are perhaps the most popular fruit to forage – and this year the hedgerows of the Peak District are groaning with plump, ripe berries. I’ve been out gathering blackberries twice already – both times returning with a bowl filled to the brim with berries. I’ve made two batches of blackberry and apple jam, and will gather more berries as they ripen. Berries freeze well, and will be very welcome during the cold days of winter. A fruit I’ve foraged for the first time this year is rowan berries. They are bitter and slightly poisonous when uncooked – although this doesn’t seem to deter the blackbirds and thrushes, who enjoy stripping the berries from the branches. Rowan berries are high in vitamin C, and are said to cure sore throats – the berries are boiled in water, the liquid is strained and then used as a gargle. The most common culinary use for rowan berries is rowan jelly. But because of their bitter flavour, it’s a good idea to combine the berries with apples – see the recipe below.

Three fruits to forage If you tire of blackberries, or just want to try something a bit different, there are many other wild foods that are there for the taking. Here are three of my favourites: Elderberries. Pick the clusters of berries when they have turned black, and use them to make wine, jellies, jams and syrups. They can also be added to stewed apples in pies and crumbles. Elderberry syrup has been used medicinally for centuries, soothing coughs, colds and sore throats when mixed with hot water and a little honey. Elderberries are high in vitamin C, as well as being a good source of potassium and vitamins A Continued on Page 11

A participant from the 2012 Firewalk Take part in the shortest sponsored walks in the world! Blythe House Hospice is excited to announce that they have once again joined forces with The Royal Oak at Hurdlow to provide perhaps two of their most challenging events! Their Charity Firewalk held in 2012 was hugely successful and saw over 20 people walking bare foot over red-hot embers measuring around 800 degrees, raising an incredible £6331 for Blythe House! Even staff at The Royal Oak took part; participant Rachel Morten commented: “It was a

brilliant event; I didn’t feel a thing when I walked over the coals!” and Jade Mullins added, “What a challenge! I really enjoyed the whole evening. So many people came, watched and supported everybody. We were all so proud to raise so much money for the local hospice.” As well as the Firewalk this year, the Royal Oak and Blythe House Hospice are also offering people the opportunity to walk over broken glass. Participants may choose to take part in either or both events. According to the Firewalk and Glasswalk coordinator Cliff Mann,

founder of Time4Change and the most experienced firewalking instructor in Europe: “Firewalking and glasswalking are challenge events, and the decision to walk across hot coals or broken glass is dramatically life changing. I have led literally thousands of people from all walks of life during my 20 years as an instructor. I hope people come on board to raise as much money as they can for Blythe House Hospice.” The Firewalk and Glasswalk will take place on Friday 27th September at The Royal Oak, Hurdlow. Glasswalk training, taking one hour will start at 5.30 pm, and will be

immediately followed by the Glasswalk. A two hour training session will be held before the Firewalking starting at 7.00pm, with the Firewalk taking place at approximately 9.00pm. Spectators will be very welcome and alongside both events will be a BBQ, Raffle and a band called The Mercy, who will perform acoustic great sing along pub tunes. Registration costs £20 for each event and places are strictly limited. To receive a registration form or for further information, please contact Lucy Marsden at Blythe House Hospice on 01298 815388 or

POLICE POCA MONEY HELPS KEEP PAVILION GARDENS A SAFE PLACE FOR FAMILIES Camera cover at Buxton’s popular Pavilion Gardens has been boosted by a £1,000 donation from police. The money was awarded to the Friends of Pavilion Gardens under the Proceeds of Crime Act and has already been used to fund several new CCTV cameras. The new cameras cover a large section of the gardens, including the kiosk and children’s play area, and help police to crack down on any crime or anti-social behaviour quickly. Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team worked with the Friends group and High Peak Borough Council to acquire

the funds to install the cameras. Under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), anyone who profits from crime can lose the financial and lifestyle gains they have enjoyed. Police can then apply to the courts to cash or other ill-gotten assets seized and sold, and use the money generated to pay compensation or for other projects. PCSO Ally Ratcliffe, from Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We did have some issues with anti-social behaviour and crime in the gardens and it was stopping people enjoying them. “We wanted to put an end to that and make sure visitors were safe when going there, especially over the summer months. “It’s great that we have been able to put money seized from criminals back into the community and for it to have such a positive impact on Buxton.” PCSO Ratcliffe worked on the project with Sally Curley, from High Peak Borough Council, and Friends of Pavilion Gardens’ Claire Millard and

Brian Shepherd. Claire said: “The cameras that we had in place before the newer ones had proved successful but the coverage is much greater now. “The kiosk and the play area, which is used by so many visitors every week, are now properly covered. “We’re very happy that the money has been able to improve the security here and will help police keep it safe from crime.” Sally, who works as a parks development officer at High Peak Borough Council, added: “The Friends of Pavilion Gardens raised the money to pay for the fantastic play area we have and I’m delighted that the security camera cover has been boosted to help protect it.” The Friends of Pavilion Gardens is now aiming to raise £3,000 to pay for the carving of a large tree trunk that stands near the play area. The project will see educational messages and information carved into the tree for children to enjoy. To find out more, contact High Peak Borough Council.

Local Woman Awarded for her Dedication to Fostering

Ashford lady, Victoria Simmons, has been recognised at a local awards event for her perseverance and dedication to foster care. Her efforts were highlighted by family support worker, Kelvena Jones, who applauded Victoria for her commitment to her role as foster carer. Model and former Eastenders actress, Elarica Gallacher hosted the event and told foster carers in Kent how they can play a crucial role in the future success of young people in foster care. Elarica, who was in care herself for many years, explained how she was inspired to reach her full potential and believe in herself. Her words came during a special awards ceremony for foster children in the London and Kent area deemed to have done the most to reach crucial milestones in their lives. It also celebrated the work of foster carers and the role they played inspiring the young people in care. The inaugural event held at Bromley Football Club,

was staged by leading independent foster care agency, Orange Grove’s South London and Kent office and is expected to become a national event for the company. Elarica, who played Kyle in Eastenders and a waitress in Harry Potter and the HalfBlood Prince, was guest of honour along with the Mayor of Bromley, MTV

news presenter, Bluey Robinson and Benidorm actor, Hugh Sachs. They joined the 40 carers and 40 children at the special event celebrating achievements.

lower than the national average, but it doesn’t have to be this way. “Acknowledging the little milestones the children reach, helps them achieve their full potential. It’s the acknowledgement and recognition that helps them believe in themselves. It goes along way. “The event was also a chance to appreciate the hard work and dedication of our foster carers and thank them for their continued commitment.” There were a number of awards on the day, as chosen by carers and children, they ranged from ‘Learning to Jump’ to achieving grade A’s in GCSE exams. They were created to honour the children for the smallest to the most prolific achievements. If you think you can inspire young people in care then you should consider a career in foster care.

THE MATLOCK FORUM CLUB The Club held the final monthly meeting of its monthly Summer Programme on Tuesday 3 September 2013. Members watched a fascinating film on the building of the Millau Viaduct which is a key feature of the motorway system from Paris to Spain and spans the valley of the Tarn river near Millau, a geographical feature which had for many years proved to be an expensive and frustrating bottleneck on this vital route. The film showed the planning processes involved in the concept of the bridge and the revolutionary methods of construction needed to bring it to fruition. The whole enterprise demonstrated engineering genius both in theory and practice and any description of the project soon became an impressive list of superlatives and “firsts”. The viaduct cost 394 million euros and was financed by the firm Eiffape in return for the concession to collect the tolls for 75 years. It is claimed that the bridge will last for 120 years. Work began in 2001 and the viaduct was opened in December 2004, a month ahead of schedule. Chairman Jim Pocklington reminded members that this was the last meeting of the Summer series and that the Autumn/Winter programme of weekly meetings for 2013-2014 would recommence on Tuesday 1st October 2013 when Mr. John Smith would give a talk entitled “WW2. The Lancaster Bomber”.

parade of boats took to the water, headed by a candlelit model - put together by all the boat builders to show how models used to look when the tradition started over a century ago. This year's boat, featuring 85 night lights and rowed once again by George Holloway, was a tribute to the Dambusters. The parade of illuminated boats takes place from 7.45pm every Saturday and Sunday evening until 26 October and can be viewed from Derwent Gardens. The Gardens and nearby Lovers’ Walks are also bedecked with colourful lights. Derbyshire Dales District Council Chairman Councillor Geoff Stevens, who has compered the

Jubilant boat builders Christine Dence, Richard Wood and Pete Hartshorn, who call themselves the Motley Bunch, continue to dominate the centrepiece of Derbyshire Dales District Council's annual Matlock Bath Illuminations. This year's festival - the 116th - burst into life on Saturday (31 August) and will run every weekend until 26 October in the District Council's picturesque Derwent Gardens. And the colourful 'Longwei', a Chinese Dragon themed boat, earned the Motley Bunch from Matlock their fifth first prize in just seven years in the popular decorated boats competition. Christine, Richard and Pete retain the Arkwright Cup, donated in 1903 by Sir Richard Arkwright, and the Centenary Cup, plus a cash prize of £270. Their boat will be on show every weekend, along with nine others, in the unique parade of decorated boats that is rowed up and down the River Derwent during the Illuminations. Second prize this year went to Ian Page from Cromford with his entry 'The Princess and the Water Snail Carriage', inspired by

Macmillan Cancer Support, registered charity in England and Wales (261017), Scotland (SC039907) and the Isle of Man (604). Printed on sustainable materials. Please recycle.

Illuminations since the 1960s, said: “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the boat builders come up with something new and somehow manage to find ways of improving what has always been a spectacular display of decorated boats. “The District Council is immensely proud to stage a unique family experience, which, if the weather is kind, should again draw in around 100,000 people this year, boosting tourism, trade and jobs locally.” Book online to beat the Illuminations queues at /Illuminations and get regular updates on Facebook at bathilluminations

As a thank you, the Lions Club agreed to purchase some shirts and fleeces for the volunteers, embroidered with a logo,

which the Rangers designed themselves. Much of the initial negotiation was carried out by the late Lion Jane Lansdowne and it was fitting that her husband, Lion Bill, was there to see the items handed over. One of the saplings planted, came from an acorn of a tree grown on

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.

Fundraising Success At Musical Picnics

Peak Advertiser 16th September 2013 – Page 7



E& M O C

Children join in with the Stick Song at the Matlock Twistin’ Tots picnic Generous Matlock residents have helped to raise over £300 for two worthy causes by attending musical picnics run by Belper-based Twistin’ Tots in August. Over £102 was raised at the Matlock Picnic – held in Hall Leys Park – the most of any of the four picnics running. Parents and children were invited to attend a series of free music sessions in the park, held at Hall Leys Park, Little Eaton Park, Crossley Park Ripley and Belper River Gardens and help to raise money for the East Midlands Children’s Hospice – Rainbows – and for Turnditch CE Primary School; a donation bucket was passed round at each event. A total of £315 was raised over the four events, which will be evenly split between the two charities. Jacqui Davis, Twistin’ Tots leader, commented, “We had over 200 families attending picnics last year and this year I wanted to exceed that, which we did. I

decided to run four events and we had over 250 families in attendance; for once we were really lucky with the weather unlike last year at Matlock when we all had to put our brollies up! Everyone had a great time at the picnic and people were immediately asking about the next event. The picnics have become so successful now, that they are likely to become an annual event – parents are always looking for free activities over the summer holidays, so they will always be popular. It’s also a great way for my music group to give something back to the local community. ” Twistin’ Tots classes aim to promote learning, coordination and movement in young children. Most use simple actions that children can join in with and there are also a variety of props used to assist children’s learning development and motor skills. Classes are suitable from birth to aged

five. Classes run in term time in Matlock at the Imperial Rooms, Imperial Rd on Wednesdays 10-11am and

Hope Valley businessman Lee Charles has stepped into his late father’s footsteps to ensure that some of the most deprived children in Africa continue to get the vital education they need to break out of the country’s abject poverty trap. Lee, director of Bradwell Packaging Ltd, has agreed to take over the role pioneered by his HopeValley Rotarian father, Ian, in supporting the jole rider charity which provides bicycles for African youngsters who have to travel up to ten miles every day to reach school. The news has been greeted with relief and enthusiasm by both the team at jole rider and members of Hope Valley Rotary Club who have always supported Ian’s work with the Bikes4Africa project. Lee has agreed that the company's premises at Stretfield Mill, Bradwell, S33 9JT, can continue to be used as a bicycle drop-in centre from 9.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. (For more information, email “We are really delighted with the news that Lee will carry on the excellent work done by his father,” said jole rider director David Swettenham this week. “Ian was a tremendous ambassador for us and when he died, jole rider - and African school children - lost a truly great friend.” The Tetbury-based jole rider team recently announced that the 12,000th cycle to be shipped abroad would carry a special badge with the name of Ian Charles engraved on it as a permanent record of the former Rotary Club president’s tireless efforts. Ian introduced the jole rider project to the HopeValley Club soon after the charity was formed and members immediately set about collecting bikes from all parts of the region. During the past seven years, more than 500 cycles have been packed into containers, along with educational books and other materials, for transportation to The Gambia where youngsters also learn how to maintain the bikes.

Tracey Harrison, owner of Avant Garde of Baslow, has announced that her company is supporting William Tudor Jones who is planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise essential funds for Helen’s Trust. William Tudor Jones, who originally qualified as a podiatrist, is currently a director within the NHS locally; he lives in the Peak District and is also a Trustee of this Bakewell-based charity, which helps people of any age, with any terminal illness. Their services are free to beneficiaries and the charity prides itself on responding quickly and creatively to provide care, support and equipment to those who want to be cared for at home.

William will be leaving the UK on 27 September to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (5,896m), which is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and the highest mountain in Africa. Ahead of the ascent (and until he arrives back in the UK early October), Avant Garde will be donating £1 for every purchase over £25.00 and each customer will then be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win £200.00 to spend in Avant Garde. William has raised almost £600.00 so far (via JustGiving’s website: m-Jones10) and is hoping to raise as much as he can for Helen’s Trust. William is covering the cost of the trip, which means that every

penny he raises will go to the charity. Commenting on why Avant Garde is supporting William Jones, Tracey Harrison said: “Helen’s Trust is a very worthwhile local charity and we know William well; we are delighted to be doing something that will both help generate funds and to raise the profile of his challenge.”

Helen’s Trust CEO, Heido Megaughin, is delighted with William’s decision to help raise funds for the charity: “We depend on donations and fundraising to meet the demand for our services. “This really is above and beyond the role of a trustee and we all wish William the best of luck with what will be the challenge of a lifetime.”

Marian Barker and Jane Martin attended and sat with fingers crossed through all the other categories and presentations. Finally David James, CEO of ‘Visit Peak District and Derbyshire’, announced what they were waiting to hear as he pulled the card from the golden envelope. “And the winner is...

of the moment wasn’t there to enjoy his success. However, a special summer evening event was later held at the museum, so that George could be formally presented with his award. Ros Westwood, Derbyshire Museums Manager and our Curatorial Advisor, was invited to do the honours. After many years of connection with the Old House she knows George well and performed the ceremony with grace and humour. As twilight began to fall over the courtyard we each raised a glass to George Challenger, outstanding volunteer.

Put the apples, rowan berries and water into a large pan and bring to the boil, then simmer gently for about 45 minutes until the fruit is very soft.

To test if the jelly has reached setting point, put a teaspoonful onto a chilled plate and pop in the fridge for a minute or two – if the jelly is ready, it will appear more solid and will

Heage windmill is proud to produce and sell stone ground flour, in various grades, using essentially traditional methods! But in order to maintain the quality of the product, from time to time it is necessary to clean and sharpen the grooves which are cut into the millstone! In days of old itinerant stone dressers toured wind and water mills and performed this essential task for the miller. Of course today there are no such skilled men to hand and it has been necessary for the team of maintenance volunteers at Heage windmill to learn how to do this them selves. Some of the longstanding mill workers are now getting ‘ a bit long in the tooth’ and this year the opportunity was taken to pass their experience on to newcomers. In order to carry out this operation it is necessary to lift and turn the runner ( or top stone) exposing the faces used in grinding the

flour to enable them to be serviced. The runner stone at Heage weighs 722 kilos (nearly 1600 lbs) and this has to be carefully raised and then swung out, to be turned over and laid on its back, with due attention being paid to relevant H&S issues. Brian Naylor, the Mill Maintenance manger, gathered a team of workers to the site last week and guided, by experienced miller, John Boucher, performed the task, which went off without a hitch. The runner stone was lifted by a temporary crane which was erected over the stones and the actual lift carried out in the traditional manner, using scissor like grips with pegs which fit into pre existing holes in the stone. The lift was powered by a modern pull lift, although in the old days wedges and pulleys would have been used! Once turned over both stones could be closely examined to establish if there were any high spots, (there wasn’t!) and all

surfaces cleaned. The grooves and cutting faces were then sharpened using hand operated, traditional mill bills which chip away and sharpen any worn areas. For several hours the mill rang to the sound of hammering whilst the various team members tried their hand at the dressing process, until the two stones met the high standard demanded by John. Once completed the runner stone had to be raised and turned again and then carefully lowered back onto to its bearings and the rest of the milling ‘furniture’, or equipment, were re-installed. All in all, a long days work, but one which proved very satisfying to those involved and which will hopefully ensure Heage windmill will continue to produce high quality flour. The Trust expressed its sincere thanks to all who worked so hard in performing this very necessary task.

Lady Manners School Sixth Formers and staff alike were enthralled when they met ‘old boy’, Matt Waldman, whose travels since leaving school have included meetings with the Taliban in Afghanistan. Matt Waldman left Lady Manners School in 1992, his position as Head Boy boding well for his future career. He qualified as an international lawyer before serving as a foreign affairs and defence advisor in the UK and European Parliaments. The next step for Matt was to join Oxfam as head of policy for Afghanistan. This started a long period of work in the region which led to a key role promoting conflict resolution and reconciliation with the Taliban, for the United Nations. The students heard tales of Matt’s adventures in Afghanistan which led him to meetings with Taliban chiefs, with one such meeting involving a discussion about the value to the Taliban if Matt were to be taken hostage! Matt concluded by leaving the students with some advice. This included ‘Strive to Attain’, the school’s motto. This has

been particularly relevant as hard work and persistence have both been necessary along Matt’s exciting and varied career path. Matt’s words of advice, and his tales of life in Afghanistan have given the students pause for thought, as they embark on life after school.

This feature first appeared in the Peak Advertiser during 2006 and is now revived as a tribute to the late Michael Skidmore, who with his younger brother Graham gave sterling service to the Bakewell area.

warm hug along with her groceries? Who else delivers orders by bike? And where on earth am I going to get my damsons this year? For this is the end of an era for Skidmores of Matlock Street, the oldest greengrocery business in town, maybe even in the Peak. Michael and his younger brother Graham, aged 75 and 68 respectively, are taking late retirement, a wrench for them and a sad loss to Bakewell. Local growers will be looking for new outlets for their homegrown fruit and veg, flowers, nuts and fresh herbs – not the expensive wispy stems packed in supermarket plastic but thick leafy bunches of parsley and mint to buy by the handful about now, just the job for chopping and freezing. Poultry keepers will be relocating the output of their hens and bantams, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl and quail. Few people can now remember Skidmores’ first shop on the opposite side of Matlock Street, next door to the late lamented Royal Oak. The double-fronted shop was opened in 1919 by

25-year-old John Skidmore ‘Fruiterer & fishmonger, Licensed dealer in game’. John had been invalided out of the First World War after being wounded and interned in a prisoner-ofwar camp, though for a time listed as missing. Until he bought a small van some years later, John delivered orders to local villages on a bike with a handlebar basket. His business now had a growing family to support. Son Michael was born over the original shop; Graham was born in the front bedroom above today’s premises, to where the family moved in the late 1930s. This building was previously Hodgkinson’s tea-rooms. The years following the move belonged to an era of gas lighting, shillings and pence, pounds and ounces weighed out on trusty nonelectronic scales, and twodigit telephone numbers: Skidmores was simply Bakewell 67. Tragically, in 1946 John died suddenly inside his shop of a heart attack. His widow continued to run the business, soon to be joined by their sons. Old-fashioned service This was the beginning of

almost 60 years behind the counter for Michael and Graham, whose oldfashioned service and disdain for modernisation have added a unique tableau to the Bakewell scene. The shop which time forgot has attracted the attention of dozens of newspapers and magazines. Visitors send back letters and photographs from around the world. One recent message refers to a photograph of Skidmores shop spotted on the wall of a waiting room – in New York! The brothers laugh at a

letter from a Cornishman who must have seen their display of rabbits and game hanging outside the shop – an old tradition now banned. The writer was over-run by rabbits and saw a business opportunity but needed advice on skinning them, also asking whether it was safe to eat rabbit if myxomatosis was about. From another envelope comes a letter of thanks dated 1961 and signed Mabel Pickles. Mabel will be remembered by those over a certain age as the wife of Wilfred Pickles, who that year brought his radio show ‘Have a Go’ to Bakewell. Cliff Richard once popped into the shop to say what a wonderful place it was. Alan Bates was another famous customer, while celebrated figures including Sir John Betjeman and Peter Shaeffer were introduced by one loyal and titled customer living just a few miles away. Now, though, the brothers have decided to call it a day; they are just waiting till the time feels right. But before the summer is out, Graham will be free to take endless walks with his beloved labrador ... Michael is leaving his options open. What is absolutely certain is that for the first time in their lives neither of them will be growing fruit & veg. Michael admits to the shocking confession that he never, ever eats any fruit. His little brother, though, is going to miss the grapes! Many, many readers will join us in thanking them for their long years of service and to wish them both a healthy and happy retirement. Julie Bunting Readers with memories of their wonderful shop will join us in extending our sympathies and best wishes to Graham.

Many complimentary remarks about the gorgeous range of plants and interesting garden designs were made by visitors during and following the event. The Bakewell Oxfam Supporters’ Group would like to say a special thank you to all those who generously opened their gardens for the afternoon. The group is also grateful to the many volunteers who helped at the garden entrances and with the refreshments to make the day such a huge success. The total proceeds from the event came to £3340, all of which will be sent to aid the work of Oxfam.

Hundreds of people turned out in Bakewell to enjoy the sixteen beautiful gardens opened on Sunday 25 August in aid of Oxfam. There was a wonderful festive atmosphere along the garden trail which took visitors into areas of Bakewell usually unseen by the general public. The weather was kind. It was a bright, warm day and all the gardens looked splendid. Refreshments including a wide variety of delicious homemade cakes were available at the Town Hall. They were extremely popular and busy throughout the afternoon, boosting the amount raised for Oxfam. Although the majority of folk walked along the trail, the Community bus was a great help for some in ferrying them between the gardens. The driver did a

Phil Bothamley (left) and Darren Gilman (right) at the Hope Construction Materials cement works, before they set off on their marathon charity bike rides Over 500 miles on two wheels has earned two cyclists from Hope Construction Materials a total of more than £3000 for their chosen charities. Maintenance Fitter, Darren Gilman and Control Room Operator, Philip Bothamley who both work at Hope Cement Works took on, and completed separate major cycling challenges this summer. Phil chose an armed forces theme for his ride, completing a 250-mile route from RAF Catterick in Yorkshire to RAF Brize

Norton in Oxfordshire. He raised over £1000 (including sponsorship in the form of supplies and a donation from his employer, Hope Construction Materials) for Scotty’s Little Soldiers. (Scotty’s Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed in action while serving with the British Armed Forces. See Commenting on the ride, Phil says: “It took us around four and a half days to complete the ride which

A demoralising defeat and a convincing victory in recent matches have left Bakewell Cricket Club in a desperate fight to retain its place in Division 2 of the Yorkshire & Derbyshire Cricket League. The away game at Hathersage saw the home side struggle to a total of 133-8, the innings only held together by an undefeated 82 from opener Steve Askew. Bakewell captain Roy Peach took 4 wickets for only 17 runs and was the Club’s top scorer with 35 not out as they could only reach a total of 82-8 in reply. Parkhead were the visitors to Bakewell the following week in a game sponsored by the Eye Place. The home side were put into bat on a dank afternoon and openers Lee Tann and Dave Hadfield set off at 20/20 pace putting on the first 50 runs in just 8 overs. Lee was dismissed for 42 and Dave for 57. Roy Peach with 42 and a quick fire 32 from Paul Fearn made sure the excellent start was not wasted and Bakewell’s innings ended on 210-7. Parkhead’s reply was interrupted by rain but with both captains anxious to achieve a result Bakewell introduced spinners Jack Madin (5-46) and Chris Haynes (3-35) to skittle out the visitors for just 112 and

secure 25 vital points. Bakewell’s final two games of the season are away to Sheffield University Staff and home to local rivals Baslow in a game sponsored by Leonard Twigg. Two outright victories will be required and other results to go its way if the Club is to avoid relegation.

was really hard work but a great feeling when we reached Brize Norton. Thanks to all sponsors who have helped us raise such a substantial amount of money. I am sure it will be put to very good use by this ambitious charity.” Darren took to his bike as part of a team of four to complete a similar distance route, but over more hilly

terrain. He cycled from North to South Wales, starting in Conwy and finishing in the Mumbles in Swansea, covering 250 miles and climbing over 32,000 feet on the way! Along with his fellow cyclists he has raised around £2,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. (See k) “The ride was hard but rewarding,” said Darren. “I am really pleased that we have managed to complete this challenge ride and raise such a large amount of money for this fantastic charity. Thanks to all my sponsors including Hope Construction Materials.” Hope Construction Materials Industrial Director Ashley Bryan adds: “It was great to hear that Darren and Phil completed their challenges in good time and in one piece! Well done to both of them. We try to support our colleagues as much as possible when they commit to charity challenges outside of work. And we were very pleased to be able to give their fundraising targets a boost, as well as much morale support from the team here at Hope Cement Works!”

Youngsters at Hartington C of E Primary School were jumping for joy after receiving a ‘good’ Ofsted report which praised children’s progress and behaviour. Inspectors noted the good relationships between teachers and pupils which they said enabled teachers to plan tasks at different levels to ensure lessons were not too hard or too easy. They also praised the school’s good links with the community which meant pupils took part in a wide range of events. Acting Headteacher, Tracy Blackwell, said “We are very, very proud to have been graded as ‘good’. It is a huge achievement and it is

down to the hard work of everyone linked with the school. I feel privileged to be part of such a fantastic team and it was the icing on the cake to have recognition for our

lovely school. We will use the report as a platform to achieve an outstanding result next time.” Information on the school is available on our website at

Experienced Teacher Well known locally for helping children to dramatically improve their reading, resulting in improvement in all school subjects.


The new school year brings with it an important and sometimes daunting task for parents of children just starting their final year of primary education. The decision regarding a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondary school is a potentially life changing one. The combined impact of school and home life on a young person during their teenage years is huge. During the next month or so, schools will be opening their doors to parents and students on the brink of this decision. Lady Manners School in Bakewell recognises the importance of this decision. It holds two open evenings during September for parents and children currently in Year 6. Duncan Meikle, Headteacher at Lady Manners School says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents will want to ask questions about exam

results; the approach to children needing particular education support, or stretching; the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to bullying; and wider life at the school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which extends far beyond the classroom. Most importantly, they will want to gain a feel for the school. Does it feel like the sort of environment in which their child will be happy and flourish?â&#x20AC;? Prospective students will also have questions. Typically these include: how will they find their way around the school; what the school dinners are like;

how much homework will they be given; what sort of clubs can they join? The school also has a wealth of information about its wide range of offerings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both curricular and extra-curricular on its website, www.ladymanners. net. Prospective parents and students alike should be able to find all the answers to their questions from the website, and their visit to the school. When the final choice is made, parents can then be confident that they are choosing the right school for their child.

WESTBOURNE SCHOOL IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now easier to get to Westbourne from Derbyshire and the Peak District as the school is operating a new school bus service bringing pupils from Matlock via Bakewell into Broomhill. For more information on this service please contact 01142 660374

Nestled on the edge of the Peak District in the South West of Sheffield is Westbourne School. A unique school in many ways, Westbourne is the only independent coeducational day school in Sheffield catering for three to 16 year olds. Westbourne is an academically non selective school and does not have a particular 'type' of student; everyone is an individual at Westbourne School and is

treated as such. The level and pace of the teaching is tailored to suit the personal needs of our community. Our most recent ISI inspection stated that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the quality of the teaching and learning at Westbourne is outstandingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and it is our individualised learning that sets us apart from the rest and creates an environment where excellent GCSE grades are produced. We achieve this mainly through our small class

sizes, (average of 14 per class) and the setting of children in the core subjects. Our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Westbourniansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the first rung of the educational ladder, are given the best possible start with our early years provision â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this has been recognised with the judgment â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;outstandingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; awarded at our last three inspections, something we are very proud of. And in January 2013, a

new chapter of the Westbourne story began with the opening of our Pre-School. In response to popular demand the PreSchool caters for children from the age of three, ideal for busy parents who are now able to drop all their children at the same school each morning. (NB our preSchool is open to everyone). Please come and visit us at our next Open Morning on Saturday 5th October.

Birkdale is a school designed for boys and is the only school in Sheffield specialising in quality education for boys aged 4 16. We believe single sex education at this stage provides a nurturing environment where boys have the freedom to explore their individual interests and identities. Our thriving coeducational Sixth Form provides a balance when it matters most, preparing pupils for further education. Birkdale is unique. We balance academic attainment with a diversity of experiences outside the classroom which inspire boys to enjoy learning. Opportunities in a wide variety of activities such as sport, music and drama provide Birkdale pupils with an all-round education. When comparing Birkdale with any other school there are 4 key areas to consider: â&#x20AC;˘ Outstanding academic record - Standards of teaching and learning are outstanding with our pupils consistently gaining some of the best exam results in the region. 2013 proved to be our best year ever. At A Level nearly 60% of students achieved A* or A grade and a staggering 85% of entries gaining A*- B grades. At GCSE 96% of all Y11 pupils gained 8 GCSEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or more, A* to C grade with 90% of all entries gaining A* to B. â&#x20AC;˘ Individual attention - Our care for each individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs is at the heart of what

we do. It is a place where hard work, individual attention, discipline and good manners are underpinned by Christian values. â&#x20AC;˘ Small class sizes â&#x20AC;˘ Extra-curricular

opportunities - Life at Birkdale is full. There is an enormous range of extracurricular opportunities in music, drama, academic societies and outdoor pursuits. We are proud of our

school and would love the opportunity to show it to you. Come along to one of our Open Mornings or contact us for a personal tour and see for yourself what a Birkdale education has to offer.

STUDY CENTRE SUCCESS STORY Baslow Study Centre has gone from strength to strength in its first year, providing high quality tuition for students in the Peak District. With large numbers of students enrolling from a variety of schools in the area, the Centre has gathered momentum as recommendations have spread and we now offer support in English, Maths and Science for students of all abilities aged between 5-18. Parents have been thrilled with the positive atmosphere of the Centre and the willingness of tutors to adapt the work to support studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

particular needs. Those who attended specifically for examination assistance have been delighted with their improved results; many have commented on the usefulness of embedding knowledge early in a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic career, particularly in English and Science which can often be forgotten about until examinations. Students have grown in confidence and have a deeper understanding of the topics covered, therefore eliminating the need for preexamination panic. With our recent Ofsted approval we have students

from all areas enrolled for this academic year, many who are continuing their attendance from last year. With recognition from Derbyshire Council ( uk/education) and a high quality set of tutors, all of whom are fully CRB checked, Baslow Study Centre is excited about the opportunities we can offer students in 2013-14. There are some remaining places for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sessions in English, Maths and Science; for more details or to request an information pack, visit

has played in major concert venues, including the Bridgewater Hall, Wigmore Hall, St. Martin’s in-theFields and King’s Place. She plays on an historic Gagliano violin, made about 1780, kindly loaned by the Royal College. Eloisa-Fleur is accompanied by the young pianist Mark Austin. The programme will include works by Beethoven, Ravel, Brahms, Kreisler and de Falla. Beethoven’s wellknown ‘Spring’ sonata, opus 24, is one of his best-loved works. It opens with a gorgeous melody, suggestive of the freshness and beauty of spring that has earned the

sonata its nickname. Ravel’s Sonate Posthume, despite its name, is an early work, discovered in his papers long after the composer’s death and first performed publicly in 1975. It consists of one movement only. Brahms’ Sonata no.3, opus108 is the last of his violin sonatas. In four movements, it offers everything from melancholy to epic drama. Kreisler’s three short pieces Schon Rosmarin, Leibesleid, and Leibesfreud are amongst the most familiar and charming romantic works for violin. The recital ends with Manuel de Falla’s popular and lively Danse Espagnole, an

orchestral piece transcribed by Kreisler for violin and piano. The concert is on Friday 27 September at the Wheeldon Hall, Highfields School, Lumsdale, off the Chesterfield Road, Matlock, DE4 5NA, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are available at the door before the concert at £10. Under-18s, students and registered jobseekers pay half-price. All seats are unreserved. There is ample parking at the school.

This year the ‘Tommo’ is part of the Peak District Cycling Festival a week long festival running from 7-15th September 2013 celebrating the joy of cycling in the beautiful Peak District. The ‘Tommo’ is just one of 60 different cycling

rides and activities that take place throughout the week. With the three fantastic routes on offer it should suit and challenge everybody of all fitness levels. - Long route (125km/2530m of climb) takes in some classic Tour of Britain climbs including Ramshorn, Cromford Hill and the legendary Gun Hill nr Leek - in addition the last 15/20km includes two x 20%+ climbs (Riber Road, Matlock and West End, Wirksworth) just to keep you on your toes to the very end! - Medium route (76km/1400m) takes in a good majority of the longer route but mainly all within the Peak National Park including a trip into Dovedale with the challenge of Cromford Hill and West End Wirksworth towards the end. - Short route (45km/740m) does a very scenic Peakland circuit via Ashbourne and the delightful villages of Thorpe and Tissington.

MY FAVOURITE WALKS – Birchen Edge This is not intended as a walk guide

Landlocked Derbyshire contains the occasional nautical surprise, and none more fascinating than the Three Ships standing stones and nearby landmark monument to Nelson which are located high on Birchen Edge above Baslow. This walk of almost 5 miles was a late afternoon stroll on a glorious early September day where I saw signs of summer on the wane and autumn in the wings. Fabulous fungi is now beginning to appear with mushrooms and toadstools shooting up overnight like colourful little umbrellas and parasols, either individually, clustered or as magical fairy rings. Rosy red berries are rife, no doubt to be interpreted as an old wife’s tale warning of a harsh winter ahead. I parked in the pay and display car park at the side of the Robin Hood pub and set off along a footpath which wound up to the Edge, admiring a view of Nelson’s Monument from beneath before I took a gently ascending path up towards the trig point and worked my way back. The slender ball topped column of gritstone was erected in 1810 to the memory of Admiral Lord Nelson and to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar. Close by are The Three Ships standing stones, each engraved with the names of his ships – Victory, Defiance and Royal Soverin (sic). Climbers of all ages use Birchen Edge as a playground, some of the climbs and boulders being tricky to scale and with fascinating or amusing names such as Stoker’s Wall, Crow’s Nest, Trafalgar Crack and Powder Monkey Parade, carrying on the nautical theme! I retraced my steps to

the trig point and continued on a fairly well defined path through heather and reed grass, passing the occasional silver birch through Access Land, with the main A621 Sheffield road as a guide to aim for. Eventually, I arrived close to the crossroads across from Big Moor and Leash Fen. It’s hard to imagine, but long ago these high moors were the location for early settlements, their only remains and reminders of civilisation being cairns,

markers. Close by is a modern Companion Stone shaped like a sail. Highland cattle graze these moors, their hardiness meaning that they can withstand cold winters. Certainly the cows and calves that I encountered had wonderfully thick coats but they also had the most amazing sets of horns which must be a nuisance when trying to walk through thick undergrowth or woodland! I came to Wellington’s

hut circles and traces of field systems. The following old verse tells of the legend that everything sank into the marsh: “When Chesterfield was heath and broom, Leash Fen was a market town. Now Leash Fen is sunken down, and Chesterfield a market town”. After carefully crossing the junction I then walked a couple of hundred yards or so beside the road leading to Curbar Gap, at one time an early packhorse route from Tideswell to Chesterfield, and then went through a gate on the left to follow the old coach road towards Baslow. Soon I came to one of my most treasured Peak District features, passing a guide stoop which three hundred years ago was at a junction where the Chesterfield road branched off. Readers will know that I am a bit of an ‘anorak’ about these early way

Monument, another historical hilltop feature which was erected by Surgeon Lieutenant Colonel Edward Mason Wrench FRCS MVO who thought it would counterbalance Nelson’s monument on the opposite escarpment. Born in 1833, Edward Wrench was the son of a London vicar. He qualified as a surgeon at the age of 20 and served in the Crimea and the Indian Mutiny before taking over medical practice in Baslow in 1862. He remained in the post for the next 50 years, and his duties included being the medical officer to Baslow Hydro (demolished 1936). Being a proactive patriot Dr Wrench erected the cross on Baslow Edge as a memorial to the Duke of Wellington and to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The cross is 10 feet high and stands at 1,000 feet above sea level.










After descending the track a short distance, I took a path just before a gate which led through deep beds of bracken and then dense trees in Jack Flat plantation, eventually emerging at a bridge over Bar Brook. Afterwards I crossed the Sheffield Road to follow a footpath behind Cupola Cottage. The path beneath Gardom’s Edge is strewn with huge rocks and boulders that have rolled down from above or have been washed down as a result of glacial melt thousands of years ago. However, it is the flat plateau to the south of the Edge that has proved most interesting to archaeologists who have discovered ring cairns and enclosures as well as several examples of ‘rock art’. There are stones bearing cup and ring marks that possibly date back to late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, a replica of one of the most significant rocks is said to be on display in Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. After my historical trip back in time I was given a sharp reminder of the present as I climbed over the last of the stiles and walked beside the busy main road for a short distance before the Robin Hood junction. I was passed by a convoy of vehicles all crawling uphill behind a large lorry laden with massive bales of straw. With weeks of warm and sunny summer weather, surely there’s going to be a bumper harvest! Sally Mosley

After being voted Number One for being The Best Lido in Britain in The Times Newspaper and recognised by The Guardian Newspaper for being "An Amazing Outdoor Swimming Pool" the pool staff and volunteers had a lot to celebrate! The pool really is an urban escape in the heart of our national park offering beautiful views of Derbyshire. The recent spell of hot weather has brought amazing crowds to enjoy the Summer in Hathersage and the pool has been full to capacity most days. A new hoist for disabled people has been purchased and is now fully operational to help entry into and exit from the pool. Grateful thanks to Julie Colley at Sladen Lodge for her generous donation towards this cost. The first trial for the extended Friday evening swim at the start of August was very well supported despite the almost tornado conditions. Wind, thunder,

lightning and massive hail stones didn't put too many people off coming! Whist the pool had to be cleared during the thunderstorm, the swimmers took refuge under the verandah to watch the lightning display until they were allowed back in the water. The staff are planning another extended trial session from 7 - 9pm on Friday 6th September hopefully to give to people the opportunity to jump in for a lovely refreshing swim after finishing a hard week's work. If you would like to see more extended sessions or have any further suggestions - please let us know by writing a comment in the visitors' book in the pool office. New ideas are always welcome. September is certainly going to be a busy month for the pool. The final Late Night swim to music for this season is on Friday 20th September from 7.30 9.30pm where hot and cold refreshments will be served on the verandah. On Friday 27th September we are taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning between 10 and 12noon in support of the Macmillan charity. Please support this if you can by donating cakes, biscuits, raffle prizes and of course by buying a cup of coffee. We are hoping to raise lots of money for this very valuable charity. We are indeed very privileged to have been asked to host a Film Screening for Sensoria on Saturday 28th September. Sensoria is the UK's festival of film and music who perform at various unusual venues across Sheffield from 26-29th September. Sensoria is a not - for - profit organisation which encourages new talent in a programme which includes outdoor screenings, showcases of up and coming bands and a Drive In as well as our very own Dive In! More details about all their activities are on their website .

The evening will begin at sundown 6.45pm and the diving film "The Big Blue" will be shown from 7pm. People may bring their own chairs to sit on the verandah to watch the film or may swim during the performance. We are also aiming to play the 1980s synthesiser soundtrack through underwater speakers. Please note this film is only for over 15s only on this occasion. Tickets are limited and cost £7 (£5 for OAPs / claimants) and 50 will be available from the pool office and the remainder on sale via the Sensoria website. Refreshments including popcorn will be available on the evening. (Alcohol and glass containers are NOT permitted in the area). If you would like to donate home made cakes or sweets it would be very much appreciated. The evening is in support of our swimming pool funds. On Sunday 29th September the pool will be open from 10am - 2pm for our end of season swim to music. A cold water swim is planned to celebrate Halloween on Saturday 26th October from 11-3pm. Be there if you dare!! Our next season starts in March 2014 and we are planning to host a Swimathon in support Marie Curie Cancer Care. This annual event raises money to support the fantastic work of the Marie Curie nurses. Please keep an eye on our website for further details. You can register to take part in this now at Many many thanks to all the music makers, cake makers and the many volunteers who have worked hard to make this season very special. We look forward to another busy and varied programme for next year. Hathersage Pool Marketing Group www.hathersageswimming

HIGH PEAK GEARS UP FOR FIRST CYCLING FESTIVAL At first glance the flight path of the Dambusters, the Monsal and High Peak Trails and a bike maintenance workshop may appear to have little in common - but they all feature in a festival of firsts taking place in the High Peak. Cyclists across the region are gearing up for the first Peak District Cycling Festival which is now just days away. The event, which runs from Saturday 7 to Sunday 15 September, features over 60 rides ranging from gentle routes to exhilarating offroad biking complemented by a programme of workshops, films, fun days and plenty of opportunities to sample the area’s food and drink. Councillor Godfrey Claff, executive member for sports and leisure at High Peak Borough Council, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming cyclists of all abilities and ages to the High Peak. “We’re fortunate to have such a variety of routes that there’s something to suit everyone and this first festival of cycling is a fantastic opportunity for people to try travelling by two wheels whilst enjoying our stunning countryside. “It’s an exciting time for cycling with this festival coming so soon after the recent announcement of £7.5 million investment in cycling in the Peak District National Park which will see new routes created, existing ones linked up and support for towns and villages to develop cycle-friendly infrastructure. Cycling is really on the up in High Peak.” There are 65 miles of traffic-free routes crossing some of the national park’s most beautiful landscapes and, in the case of the Monsal Trail, even going through some Peak District hills via a series of spectacular tunnels on the former railway line from Bakewell to Blackwell Mill. And those keen to recreate the days of the dare-devil Dambusters, but on two wheels, can ride their flight path and learn handling, maintenance and navigation on an easy terrain off-road route around Ladybower Reservoir.

YOUR LOCAL JAPANESE 4X4 PARTS SPECIALISTS SINCE 1981 As the light nights and hot summer days are drawing to an end, it’s now time to consider making sure your car is fully prepared to tackle the winter months ahead. There are many things to consider to make sure that you stay safe, don’t get stranded and reduce the risk of breaking down. A garage can check many things to make sure your car is winter ready. A battery’s lifespan sometimes doesn’t go beyond five years and can be stressed by cold and damp mornings, heaters and other electric-sapping devices. Brake pads and discs must also be checked as braking distances are increased in snow / ice / rain. All exterior bulbs must be working, too, as it’s as important to be seen, as it is for you to see. Other things to consider are antifreeze / windscreen washer fluid levels and windscreen wipers which could become split or damaged. If your car hasn’t been serviced for a good while, having that done before winter arrives is a good idea. A recent study carried out on 250 cars at three different locations in the country revealed that 49 per cent of those cars had either low, or dangerously low, oil levels in their engine – that could translate to approximately 15 million out of 31 million cars on the road in this country. The average bill for repairing an engine

damaged by a lack of oil is around £1,400. The condition of your tyres are also worth checking as the less tread you have, the less grip you’ll have. If you live in a rural area, it might be worth investing in winter tyres, as they have far

ice scraper, de-icer (also, keep some in the house in case your locks are frozen), collapsible shovel, tow rope, warm coat, mobile charger and a set of jumpstart cables. Keeping a couple of energy bars in the glove box wouldn’t go amiss, too.

MON-FRI: 8AM-5:30PM - SAT: 8AM-12:30PM /milneroffroad more grip on snow and ice than normal tyres due to their higher level of silica in the tread which doesn’t harden when temperatures are low. Snow chains and socks are also to be considered. A tyre company will advise you which is best for your journeys. Keeping your car clean can be a factor, too, as if your number plate becomes too dirty to read you will attract attention from Police and are liable for a fine. A visit to your local car accessories shop is a good idea to stock up on certain things in case of an emergency, such as: spare bulb set, reflective warning triangle, walking boots or wellies, first-aid kit, torch,

Has anyone else noticed how much better B&B’s have become since, say, the seventies? Actually, having asked the question, I’m now wondering if it’s me who has changed and not the establishments themselves. Back in those days the old fella and I were on a tight budget....but just occasionally we went without food for a couple of weeks ourselves, saved on feeding the dog by sending her out scavenging for meals around the neighbours’ houses and cut back on non-essentials like heating and light, in order to save up a few pennies and go off on our annual luxury three day break. Back then our horizons didn’t stretch as far as Bognor Regis, never mind The Bahamas.....we would usually be found living it up somewhere with a bit of coastline as close to home as possible – so it was Blackpool or somewhere similar every time. We stayed at some ropey places. Of course that could be to do with the fact that, if the chauffeur drew up outside any B&B that looked particularly neat and tidy, well maintained or even welcoming, I’d generally veto it before we even knocked at the door for fear it was too expensive for our very shallow pockets, and make him drive on to find something dingier! Sometimes my strategy of not looking for anything too showy helped us to stumble across a lovely place to stay. We knocked on the door of one house offering accommodation, I think it was somewhere in Wales, it looked from the outside like a tiny two-up, two-down terrace – and when we got inside that’s exactly what it was. The

owners were absolutely lovely people, we were assured they had a room for us, as well as a TV lounge and would offer a grand Welsh breakfast...but could we come back in an hour to look at the room? I imagine all hell broke loose in that house for the next sixty minutes as they moved all their personal stuff out into the garage so we could sleep in their bed and put our feet up in their front room.....I can only guess that they spent the rest of the evening holed up in the kitchen before going to sleep in the shed! Their hospitality and the breakfast, though, were marvellous and we really enjoyed our short stay. My selection strategy didn’t always work like that of course, in fact it failed more often than not. We went to a house in one seaside town and were shown a revolting room by a terribly scary lady, I’m a thrifty girl but even if it had been offered at ten pence, never mind ten pounds a night, I would have had to have turned it down. The blankets looked as if their previous owner had worn them after a canter out on the sands; there were curtains to the windows – but who needs curtains when the windows are so dirty neither the sun nor anyone outside could ever get a look in? But the deciding factors were the strategically placed mouse traps – I don’t like sharing a room with anyone but my hubby, even if it is cheap! It got a little better when we moved up country....our digs in Whitley Bay seemed fine but their breakfast speciality (not advertised in the window) turned out to be mouldy bread, and it must have been a speciality because we stayed for two

days and that particularly culinary delight was served both times! As the years have gone on and we’ve found ourselves with a few shillings more in our pockets though, I have relented to the point where I don’t invoke my “too expensive looking” veto any more, and on reflection, I guess with that change in me has come a change in our fortunes as far as accommodation goes. But I do think the owners of B&B’s have changed as landlady cottoned on to the fact that it was our wedding anniversary and presented us with eggs poached in a mould in the shape of a heart at breakfast much to the other half’s disgust! He likes his fried! She was obsessed with detail....our room was more colour coordinated than Victoria Beckham, even the vase of fresh flowers matched the curtains The bowl of fruit next to the bed was a lovely touch.....until my other half knocked it over on his way back from a dead-of-night trip to the bathroom. I couldn’t see the funny side of scrabbling about on my hands and knees at three in the morning searching for errant satsumas, and it didn’t help when I chased one of Granny Smith’s finest under an occasional table and upended the bowl of potpourri which had been so loving placed on it happy days. Then there was the beautiful, guest house where we took our, then, teenage daughter. After showing us our rooms the gentleman owner gave the poor girl a three hour powerpoint presentation on not putting hot electrical items on the dressing table. He’d clearly had his fingers

– or his furniture – burned in the past by a thoughtless youngster but if he’d have asked he’d have found out our poor girl didn’t even have any hair straighteners! I suppose even these days it’s the luck of the draw whether your chosen place to stay has a six foot deep feather filled mattress or a sheet of thin cardboard covered in an old sack. Your breakfast could, I suppose, be a plethora of all good things or an overcooked egg served with tasteless sausages on a chipped plate and accompanied by last week’s bread. As with everything though there are two sides to every story. A few weeks ago we stayed at the best bed and breakfast we have ever been to....and in conversation with it lovely owner I mentioned the fact that I was going to write this particular article. Naming no names she told me about one of her first experiences as a landlady – the guest, a man, turned up a day early but late into the evening. He’d booked in for bed and breakfast but on arrival demanded a meal of rice and fish, I don’t know how she managed it, but she obliged. She also managed to sort out lifts to and from his various appointments during his week-long stay....even though he’d only booked in for a night, she even did his laundry. But even this lady couldn’t oblige with his final request. He was looking for a new bride, he told her, someone about half his age who could give him some sons – and presumably rustle up late night rice and fish. But it got me thinking is there a business opportunity lurking there, B, B and B? Bed, breakfast and bride.....on reflection, I think not! © Jean Goodwin 2013

Caring, honest, hardworking charity, 92 years young, seeks younger like minded partners for exciting, fulfilling relationship. Must be organised, have a sense of humour and be sympathetic to our brave Armed Forces. The Royal British Legion is launching a campaign to attract more people to volunteer their time as Poppy Appeal Organisers and Collectors and is asking the people of Derbyshire to do their bit. The Poppy Appeal Organiser position has long formed the backbone of the Legion’s network of volunteers and the charity currently needs new organisers for Hope, and for Darley Dale & Rowsley. All of the 71 organisers in the county would greatly appreciate the help of anyone who can collect donations for a couple of

hours or help to distribute boxes of poppies to shops and businesses in the week before the start of the Appeal and to collect them back in after Remembrance Sunday. The 2012 Poppy Appeal nationally currently stands at just under £36,000,000, Derbyshire alone contributed over £647,000 to that amount, to support the Armed Forces family and increasingly, the Afghanistan generation of our Service community. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Poppy Appeal Organiser or a Collector, or are interested in how you can do your bit to support the Poppy Appeal and The Royal British Legion in Derbyshire, contact, 07973 750816 or sign up as a Poppy Volunteer at uk/support-us/volunteering
