To The Peaks of Fame: John Oliver (1856-1927) Pit Boy to Premier John Oliver was a Peaklander of humble birth who followed his fortune to become Prime Minister of British Columbia. His story was researched some years ago by the Reverend Douglas Gibson, former vicar of Hartington, who kindly gave us permission to reproduce extracts from his biographical account written for the church magazine in 1983. Born at Hartington on 31 July 1856 and baptised at St. Giles’ church, John Oliver was the eldest of nine children born to Robert and Emma Oliver. The Olivers’ presence in the Peak could be traced to Robert’s great-grandfather, who had probably left Scotland to fight in the illfated Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, staying behind when Bonnie Prince Charlie was

forced to retreat from Derby. Robert Oliver earned his livelihood mainly from farming, moving his young family to several different homes including Brighton near Wolfscote and Brick Kiln at Reapsmoor. His son John was introduced to formal education at Hartington school followed by Biggin school and then St. Luke’s at Sheen.At the age of 10 he had to leave school to help his father – ‘a giant of a man’ – who had recently been contracted to work an old ironstone and lead mine in Hartington Dale, just beyond the track to Moor Farm and owned by the Duke of Devonshire. John, who in later years would recall the repeated terror of climbing a ladder for several hundred feet in the dark, was

eventually allowed to halve his time down the mine and instead drive a donkey which hauled out heaps of ore in a tiny cart. The boy returned to school half-time until he was 12. John now began to divide his efforts between helping his father and building up his own small business, buying eggs from neighbouring farms and selling them at Buxton market. He managed to save enough money to buy a pony and cart and set to work full-time selling eggs and vegetables. His father also gave him work carrying ore to Friden station on the Cromford and High Peak Railway but this came to an abrupt end in late 1869 when the Duke’s agent closed the mine. Set sail for Canada Robert Oliver immediately began to look much further afield for new opportunities and in April 1870, with five children under 14 years old, he and wife Emma left the Peak and set sail for Canada. One son was left behind to be brought up in England. The family settled in Maryborough, Wellington County, Ontario, where Robert returned to farming. Young John toiled alongside him in summer, and in winter worked in the woods learning the skills of a woodsman. He also turned his hand to digging wells, stone blasting and

stone carving. Meanwhile, the Oliver family was extended by three more children before the death of Emma in 1875. Two years later John struck out further west on his own. In Victoria he was taken on as an axeman for survey work on the Canadian Pacific Railway. Aged only 21, he took up a homestead in the future Municipality of Surrey in British Columbia. It took him 15 years of desperately hard work to overcome the problems of dreadful weather and water-soaked earth but with his land successfully irrigated, John was recognized as one of the best farmers in the Province.

As a wildlife watcher and outdoor enthusiast I feel very lucky to live in the county of Derbyshire. From the high moorland of the Pennines to the meadows alongside the River Trent we have such a variety of countryside, and this variety is reflected in the various reserves of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. Our next talk, to be given by Matt Johnson, the Trust’s Conservation Officer, demonstrates this diversity when he talks about the Trust’s 42 reserves. These nature reserves are central to the

Trust’s vision of a Living Landscape as the Trust are working to create a network of connected wildlife habitats, to help the natural environment adapt to climate change. The reserves provide a vital refuge for animals and plants which are disappearing from our countryside, such as the water vole. These can be seen regularly on Cromford Canal, and that fascinating bird, the bittern, sometimes visits the reserves at Willington, Drakelow and Carr Vale in winter. Rose End Meadows

and the Wye Valley reserves are havens for wildflowers which are fed on by butterflies, bees and other insects, providing great biodiversity as well as great views. However Matt will be talking particularly about Woodside Reserve, which at 182 acres is the largest reserve in the county outside the Peak District National Park. It is on the site of the former Woodside Colliery, next to Shipley Park, and has a variety of habitats where butterflies and other invertebrates thrive, whilst also providing

areas for farmland birds. The Trust is managing part of the reserve as a working farm using native breed cattle and sheep, and to keep it sustainable they are selling boxes of beef and lamb from the livestock. Lots to hear that about this different way of managing a wildlife reserve. So do come along for another interesting and entertaining evening on Monday 24 February 2014 at 7.30pm at Darley Dale Methodist Church Hall, Dale Road North. Admission £2.50 and everyone is very welcome.

Amateur dramatists and musicians from Bakewell are celebrating after receiving £5000 from a local retailer for new stage equipment. Bakewell Town and Community Trust, which runs Bakewell Town Hall in The Square, is a registered charity charged with looking after the Hall for the benefit of the local community. The Trust took over the running of the Hall in 2009 at which point it began an ambitious programme of improvements, including work on the impressive proscenium arched stage in the Assembly Hall based on the first floor. The Hall itself has now been restored, but the stage needed a number of improvements to make it fit for purpose. The Board of Directors, therefore, approached local businesses for support and Central England Co-operative, which has a food store on Market Street, was happy to help. Patricia Lunn, Chair of Bakewell Town and Community Trust, explained; “The Trust is keen to develop new audiences and participants in arts’ activities and is currently undertaking

The Trust has also recently taken part in the ‘Big Gig’ a national initiative which has introduced people of all ages to musical instruments and has led to some joining local groups. “Thanks to the donation from Central England Cooperative, we will now be able to replace the stage extension and install wing and stage curtains thus ensuring that the facility meets the needs of the Bakewell community.” Central England Cooperative donated the money from its Making a Difference Community Dividend fund, which guarantees that a percentage of its trading profit is donated to local groups in its trading area. Joy Welch, PR Officer, Central England Co-operative added: “This is a very worthwhile arts’ project, which will prove invaluable to the people of Bakewell. As a community retailer Central England Co-operative is proud to support this initiative.”

At the meeting held on Tuesday 28 January 2014 the members enjoyed an illustrated talk/quiz by Mrs Trish Twyford entitled “What is it?”. The talk and the accompanying slides confirmed that the spirit of Heath Robinson was alive and flourishing in modern times. There are still a number of individuals with varying amounts of eccentricity, genius, skill and ingenuity who devote their time to the production of gadgets which meet genuine and generally accepted needs. Alongside these are other gadgets for which the need seems to spring from the imagination of their inventors who find fulfilment in the production of mostly unnecessary, complex and ingenious devices to perform simple tasks. These were the items upon which Mrs. Twyford concentrated.

She showed a series of pictures of gadgets and invited members of the audience to guess what they were supposed to do and, in response, received a number of fantastic, imaginative, humorous and occasionally somewhat dubious suggestions. In the light of the fact that the slides showed, for example, such items as a hip flask disguised as a pair of binoculars and a handsfree sandwich holder it was not surprising that most of the suggestions were wide of the mark. The presentation kept the members amused and interested throughout the session and they warmly supported the vote of thanks proposed by Chairman Jim Pocklington.

To The Peaks of Fame: John Oliver (1856-1927) Pit Boy to Premier

Fabric & Furnishing solutions

At the age of 30 he married Cheshire-born Elizabeth Woodward and fathered five sons and three daughters. Four of the boys were to have a university education; the

fifth managed the old homestead. Meanwhile their father gradually extended his land holdings in the Fraser Valley. He became a pioneer in such innovative ideas as steam

threshing, receiving one of the first certificates of a steam engineer. Political Life He went on to establish a political outlet for his considerable experience of working the land and, held in high regard as ‘Honest’ John Oliver, was appointed Minister of Agriculture and Railways. In 1917, as leader of the Liberal Party, he became the 19th Premier of British Columbia. On one occasion he entertained the Governor General, who happened to be the 9th Duke of Devonshire – grandson of the Duke who had closed the mine in

Hartington Dale some 50 years earlier. During his term in office, Oliver initiated large-scale pump and gravity irrigation projects in the dry South Okanagan Valley, for a time the largest system anywhere

Contined from Page 1 in the world. Its success enabled the development of a productive fruit growing industry centred on a community which was to adopt his name. The village of Oliver was reincorporated as a town in 1990 and now has a population of around 5,000. The Hon. John Oliver died in office on 17 August 1927. His body lay in state in Parliament Buildings prior to a state funeral, when thousands of people lined the route to the First United Church and thence to the Royal Oak Burial Park. John Oliver was described by the officiating minister as a man loved by all, with heavy public demands upon him but ‘not forgetful of his duties to the church’. In British Columbia he is commemorated not only by the town of Oliver on the Okanagan River but by the towering rugged peak of Mount Oliver, also street and school names in Vancouver. In pride of place in his home town stands a full-sized bronze statue of the Peakland pit boy who became premier. Our photograph has been kindly supplied by the sculptor, Leta Shores. Julie Bunting

Their aim is to raise money from sponsorship for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Aquabox. To help them on their demanding journey Paul was made an Honorary Rotarian, a member of the Rotary Club of Wirksworth, and President Mel Askew is shown attaching a Rotary pin to Paul’s lapel. There are 32 Rotary clubs in the 11 different countries through which they will be cycling and Paul’s

LISA ELLIOTT RUNS FOR ASHGATE HOSPICE Lisa Elliott, who lives and works in Hope, is running the London Marathon in April for charity, and is aiming to raise over £1500 for Ashgate Hospice in Chesterfield. Lisa says, “I only started running a couple of years ago and have always wanted to run the London Marathon but never thought I would ever get the chance. “I am currently running 35 miles a week, with the longest distance in one run being 17 miles, as well as running my business and fitting it in with my family life of a husband and two children, Sofia aged 11 and Zak aged 8.

“My main motivation is the fact I’ve always wanted to run a marathon and running for a great charity like Ashgate Hospice has given me the extra determination to conquer it. “Even though the fundraising is going well, I still would like to raise more, so if anyone would like to donate you can do it in person with myself at Lisa's Health and Beauty or on my Just Giving web page below, or just follow the links on the site for Ashgate Hospice”. www.justgiving. com/Lisa-Elliott9 “Thankyou to everyone who is supporting me on this venture”.

more contemporary songs including Keith Christopher’s Let All Men Sing, Bring Him Home from Les Miserables and The Mansions of the Lord which featured in the film We Were Soldiers and was performed at President Reagan’s funeral service.

Dr Miles Ellis relates his experiences of visiting Burma in March 2013, following in the footsteps of his great-aunt who visited the country in 1897 and subsequently wrote an iconic book about her

experiences. The talk, and approximately 300 photographs, gives Dr Ellis’ own impressions of a beautiful and little-known country and its people and how it has changed over the last 115 years.

James Machon, 23, from Castleton, previously having lived in Bamford, has been selected for the Olympic Team in Sochi. James attended Bamford Primary, Hope Valley College and Lady Manners and graduated from Leeds Met University this year and was included in the Talented Athletes Sports Scholarship programme. James started skiing at Sheffield Ski Village and started competing on snow in 2006. He is one of 300 athletes world-wide to have received an International Olympic Solidarity Scholarship. James has been British Halfpipe Champion in four consecutive years since 2008. James competes in ski Halfpipe which is a discipline of Freestyle skiing and it's a new event making its debut at Sochi. Ski Halfpipe is an extreme sport where skiers perform a sequence of tricks (rotations and flips) down a halfpipe which is about 140 metres long with 6 metre high walls. The object is to

perform difficult manoeuvres with perfect form and land the run. Poor landings and falls can lose more than half of points awarded for the run. James has trained and


travelled for many years with his younger brother Robert who is part of the GB development team. Robert

has been the most influential in James’ career to date and is his most perfect training partner. James’ journey to the Olympics has been far from easy. In a cruel twist of fate in October 2012 James had a career-threatening injury and snapped his anterior cruciate ligament. His recovery was delayed in April 2013 when he had an infection and further surgery. So after over a year out and two operations James only had two chances to complete his qualification in the last two competitions on 3rd and 10th January, and he also needed to meet Olympic top 30 world ranking list, which was difficult, having only competed in 3 out of the 10 qualifiers. James was back training in the halfpipe in Colorado in December 2013 and received the call from his coach on January 22nd to confirm his selection for the GB team. His event is on 18th February.

Turning this building into a community space will allow individuals, organisations and groups to host events in a beautiful venue within the context of good facilities and footfalls. We hope, that over time, the Old Station Building Community Space will become a hub of activities for the communities of Derbyshire and the Peak District and will give locals and tourists another reason to visit”. If you are interested in using this space contact Katayune Jacquin at info@peak



The Rowsley Old Station or The Old Station Building as it is commonly known, stands at the centre of Peak Shopping Village. The building became listed in October 1972 and became the centre piece of the shopping village when it was built in 1999. The building was designed by the Duke of Devonshire's agent, Sir Joseph Paxton and stands as a reminder of the rich local railway heritage in the area. The Old Station Building has seen a number of uses for retail outlets and cafes, unfortunately none of which have been able to stand the test of time. The Peak Shopping Village management have decided to offer the space to the communities of Derbyshire and the Peak District to showcase their artistic work, to use for fund-raising events and demonstrate their talents. The space will also be available for local artisan traders looking for occasional space to retail and grow awareness of their products. Spokesperson for the Peak Shopping Village, Katayune Jacquin said, “We are really lucky to have such a beautiful and historic building forming the centrepiece of the Shopping Village.

The search is on for 30 hardy souls with both a big social conscience and an outsize thirst for adventure. They are being offered the chance to make a challenging trek to the Everest base camp in the Himalayas while helping a local expedition raise awareness of the plight of some of the world’s poorest people.


Sheffield University graduate Chris Jones is the Everest team leader in a fivestrong ‘Action4Asia’ expedition which will spend six months travelling 9000 miles by pedal cycle through nine countries in South East Asia. As well as highlighting the poverty of many families along the route, the expedition will document the

sterling work of several small charities who work tirelessly to improve their lives. The 30 volunteers will join the expedition for a fortnight’s trek to Everest next June and will also help to raise money for the Derbyshire-based disaster aid charity Aquabox, UNICEF, and international youth training charities Restless Development and SIIDshare. “We want to hear from anyone who would like to take part in a tremendous adventure and to help Action4Asia raise money to support the work of littleknown charities and aid agencies,” said Chris this week. Two graduates who both live in Baslow, North Derbyshire - Dave Cook and Paul Cave - will lead the main expedition which will travel

from Singapore to Mumbai via Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal and India. It is believed to be the first expedition of its kind and will take the team through terrain that is both physically and mentally challenging, often extremely wild and always potentially dangerous. The route includes areas of arid desert and scrubland, steamy jungle and high mountain Himalayan passes in conditions ranging from hot and humid, intense cold, snow and monsoon rain. Says Chris: Getting to Everest will be the easy part...” Further information is available from Chris on 07581 864857 or via the expedition website –

LOCAL CHILDREN’S AUTHOR Nominated for National Book Prize!

Stitch Tania chatting to a pupil about reading at Curbar Primary School


Ta d d i n g t o n - b a s e d children’s author Tania Bramley is a familiar face to many primary children in the area, thanks to her frequent school visits and author talks. Now, Tania has had her latest book, ‘The Boys’ Own Bug Club’, nominated for The People’s Book Prize! “I am absolutely delighted,” says Tania. “The publishers and I have worked very hard on this book. We really wanted to create something that would appeal particularly to boys, and the fact that the book has been nominated for a national prize is a measure of our success.”

Tania is very concerned about the lower literacy levels of boys compared to girls, and with their lower levels of engagement with reading generally. “I want boys to love reading,” Tania explains, “which is why I wrote this book. Though of course, girls love it too!” To find out more about The People’s Book Prize, and to vote for ‘The Boy’s Own Bug Club’, visit http://www.peoplesbookp If you’d like Tania to visit your school and talk to pupils about stories and about writing (all for free!), email taniabramley@taniabramley.

Dr Trevor Trueman, Chair of the Oromia Support group, gave a talk ‘No refuge in Africa’ hosted by Wirksworth and District Amnesty International last week. He spoke movingly of the sudden arrests, the torture and killings suffered by the Oromo tribe in Ethiopia. The ruling Tigray tribe feel threatened by anyone who voices opposition and the response of their western-funded army is violent in the extreme. Disappearances, rapes, executions are commonplace. Oromo asylum seekers, over from Derby, confirmed the experiences Dr Trueman had gathered during his fact-finding missions. Yet the UK continues to pour more aid money into Ethiopia than into any other country. This is despite the failure of the authorities over many years to improve the situation there. How can we have been so ignorant of these human rights abuses? Many in the audience didn't even know of the existence of the Oromo people. Yet millions of Oromo are at risk of malnutrition and those who have spoken up have been humiliated, beaten, put to death.

Ten years ago, The Baslow Bootbash was born and since then has gone from strength to strength and is making its mark in the challenge walker’s diary. The original walk was designed to cover approximately 26 miles and the route starts at the Golden Gate, Chatsworth Park and goes through Edensor, Over Haddon, Sheldon, Monsal Dale, Cressbrook Dale, Foolow, Eyam, Froggatt before heading over to Calver and the final leg to finish at Baslow Village Hall. Once there, the walkers and runners are greeted and treated to Pie and Peas and lashings of tea!

Responding to popular request, the organisers have introduced a shorter 14 mile route to cater for those who find 26 miles a little challenging. This route runs parallel with the 26 mile

Extended opening hours, carefully considered routine and the fantastic forest school have all contributed to the changes, plus dedicated staff mean that it really is, “a very happy place” and “my child looks forward to coming every day” say two of its parents. “I am delighted that we are able to offer each child a unique start to their education. That starting point is to value each and every child. We are very much about meeting the child where they are, as opposed to forcing set ideas onto them. I believe that the pre-school years are for play! To make friends and gain an understanding of themselves and their surroundings,” says Rebecca. “We are so fortunate that the local community is very much behind us – ranging from ladies from the WI baking with the children each Monday, to running events alongside the village shop.” The forest school is supported by playgroup staff, trained forest school leaders and regular

The first HOBS meeting of 2014 was held at our usual venue of the Wheatsheaf. Everyone agreed the Christmas party was a huge success with entertainment being provided by Mick Partridge and Stephen Hunt. After an excellent three course meal the members were asked to come up with ideas for our outings at the next meeting on 12th February. To end the evening Tery Bettney brought a selection of Derbyshire countryside slides which we all found very interesting and we followed this by our usual game of bingo. The meeting ended approximately 9.30pm.

volunteers. “My child cannot wait for Wednesdays, and asks me each morning if today is the day!” is a common statement from parents.The allotment has been a huge success, along with local crafts people coming into playgroup to work with the children. Local potter Madeline Gay said during her recent visit, “I wish this playgroup had existed when my children were small. They would have loved coming here! It is such a lovely place!” The Friday Mud Kitchen is also a highlight of the week for many. Between the hours of 10-11.30hrs, Mud Kitchen toddlers operates alongside the normal playgroup session. This is an opportunity for parents to see how things have changed for themselves in recent times. Plus eat toast, drink tea and meet other families! “My vision for playgroup, is one where children feel safe, secure and loved – so then they are free to get on with the serious business of learning through play,” says Rebecca.

On 21 February 1819, an unknown man aged around 50 was buried at Wirksworth. He had been found dead on Cromford Moor, his throat cut and his body strung up by its neck to a sapling. The corpse was discovered by two lead miners on their way to work. The deceased was dressed in velveteen breeches under a drab greatcoat with large oldfashioned buttons, and black boots – the common apparel of a drover or jobber. At an inquest the lead miners told how ‘they found his clothes drenched in blood, and a small incision on the left side of his throat. His head was raised about half a yard from the ground; his neck being tied by a piece of packthread and a handkerchief to a young larch tree, not thicker than a hedgestake. In his pockets were found a halfpenny, a night-cap, and a small dull knife; the last was rather bloody, but this might have been caused by the blood having flowed copiously down the inner side of the waistcoat’. Interestingly, the knife was folded shut. There were no signs of a struggle and no traces of blood beneath the body. Although the clothing had turned mouldy, the miners insisted that the body could not have been there for long, for they had passed that way very recently. A Hoofprint Their evidence, coupled with the fact that a pony’s hoofprint was found nearby, obliged the jury to consider whether the deceased was a murder victim, killed elsewhere and then brought onto the moor. On the other hand, it would have been a simple matter for a murderer to throw the corpse into any of the nine or ten disused mine shafts lying within a short distance of where it was found. It might then have lain undiscovered for years. So perhaps the stranger had committed suicide, even though the only weapon at the scene was his own ineffective-looking knife. This supposition led to the bizarre theory that he had inflicted the wound himself but that the knife

was too blunt for the cut to prove immediately fatal. So as he grew weaker through loss of blood, the man tried to hasten his end by hanging himself from a sitting position. The two surgeons who examined the body could not agree on whether this was a case of murder or suicide, so the jury could only return a general verdict. The last word about the deceased came from the Reverend G.D. Kelly, vicar of Wirksworth, who noted in the parish register that ‘not anything could be made out respecting him’. Julie Bunting

A Ground Source Heat Pump System harnesses energy stored in the ground and is a very clean, reliable and economic way to heat your home. Heat energy is collected by a fluid circulating in lengths of pipe buried one metre below the surface of an appropriate area of land, or installed vertically in bore holes if space is limited. At the heart of any heat pump is a refrigeration system which picks up heat energy from the environment at one temperature and delivers it at a higher temperature to your central heating and domestic hot water cylinder. Simon and Rachael live in a traditional stone build house in a popular Derbyshire village. They decided to heat their home using a Ground Source Heat Pump System, but as the area of land around the house was not large enough for horizontal heat collecting pipework the heat pump was connected to vertical loops, installed in three bore holes. The heat pump provides all their domestic hot water and heats the house via underfloor heating pipework on the ground floor and traditional radiators upstairs. Rachael explained, “The need for alternative heating was due to the ever increasing price of oil. Living in a village with no mains gas, we looked at Ground Source Heat Pumps as an option for heating in our new home. We knew there would be a major initial investment but we also knew it would add value to our property in the long run. “After looking for suitable companies we came across Coefficient

Sapphire Wealth Consultancy UNLOCK CASH FROM YOUR HOME Equity Release ~ Considering a Lifetime Mortgage… Like many people in or near retirement, you may find you’re well off on paper but less so in practice. It’s not that you don’t have the money – It’s just that most of it is tied up in your home. This can be a dilemma if you need to free up some of this wealth but don’t want to sell your home. What is a Lifetime Mortgage? A lifetime mortgage is a special type of mortgage for people in or near retirement that offers a way

of releasing some of the equity in their home. Like any other mortgage, it’s a loan secured against the property and interest is accumulated, but the difference is that you don’t have to repay any of the loan or interest during your lifetime. The interest rate you pay is fixed for the lifetime of the mortgage. You can use the money however you wish: perhaps you have plans to travel or just want to maintain the lifestyle you enjoyed when you were earning a regular

income. If you’re not as mobile as you used to be, you could use the money to adapt your property to make your life more comfortable. Whatever you’d like to use the money for, taking out a Lifetime Mortgage can offer a more flexible way of planning for the future, allowing you the freedom to enjoy your retirement – without having to sell your home. No Obligation Appointment We provide a two stage appointment process. In the first meeting we will

review your needs and get an understanding of what you want from your retirement. During the second meeting we will make a recommendation whether equity release is right for you. If it is we will let you know the best product based on Independent Advice from the whole market. Equity Release: this is a lifetime mortgage or home reversion plan. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personal illustration.

• Protecting their assets against any potential future costs of long term care.

• Mitigating an Inheritance Tax liability. WILL YOUR HOME BE SOLD TO PAY FOR CARE COSTS? It is a frightening fact according to official government statistics that over 69,000 have to be sold each year to refund Local Authority care costs* The Government will pay certain costs relating to nursing care whilst the individual may be liable for the residential and personal care costs. This means if you have assets you will have to pay yourself. THE GOOD NEWS if you act early enough you could protect a significant part of your estate.

Surprising as it may be, many estates pay 40% tax on their family’s future inheritance. In certain circumstances anything above the nil rate band (£325,000) is taxed at an incredible 40% for the 2013/2014 tax year. THE GOOD NEWS if you act early enough you could reduce any potential inheritance tax liability on your estate.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Andrew, along with his

colleagues Deputy Manager Chris Bills and Recycling Advisor John Kobyashi, sprang into action, putting into use the knowledge and skills they had gained through the first aid training they have received. The three of them together were able to perform CPR on John for almost 30 minutes before an ambulance arrived. John, who has since been fitted with an ICD, recovered well following the incident and his family

If you are a regular visitor to Haddon Hall you will of course know that it is the dovecote, seen on your left as you go up the drive. In one of the dramatizations of Jane Eyre this is the building that was cunningly and most effectively disguised as the chapel, complete with gravestones, where Jane nearly married Mr. Rochester – remember? Stephen Coates, a warden at Haddon Hall, came to the Bakewell and District Historical Society January meeting to share with members his interest in these fascinating buildings. I have to admit that I’d never really thought seriously about dovecotes, vaguely imagining that one looked much like another. Not so! With a series of

beautiful photos Stephen showed us that they can be different shapes and sizes and of different appearances both outside and in. Some are round,

some square, some made of stone and some of wood. Common features are access for the birds, near the top, access for the keeper and a protruding shelf part-way up the outside walls, to keep vermin from running up and/or for the birds to sit

on while sunning themselves. Inside are numerous nest holes where the birds lay their eggs and where the squabs are fed until large enough for the table. As an important source of food dovecotes were found in monasteries and manor houses and were often regarded as a sign of wealth. Society Chair, Jan Stetka, reminded members that our next meeting will be the AGM. He urged us to attend as this is our chance to make suggestions on the running of the society. We are already looking forward to our visit to the brand new Sainsbury gallery at the British Museum to see the exhibition: Vikings Life and Legend.

Sheffield was renowned as a hardworking but outstandingly grimy place well into modern times – its expansion was, after all, rooted in the Industrial Revolution on a massive scale. Over many years rivers once rich in salmon had become stinking sewers, with riverside pastures and meadows grossly polluted into the 1970s. Then, following a massive industrial downturn, the city was able to work at throwing off that reputation and put some colour back into its cheeks. In truth, this has always been there, evidenced by this outstanding collection of more than 250 full colour images, from painted town scenes to beautiful landscapes to parks, all peopled by those of a bygone era. The illustrations have been assembled and researched by Ian D. Rotherham, Professor

by Ian D. Rotherham

of Environmental Geography and a Reader in Tourism and Environmental Change at Sheffield Hallam University. Ian points out that until the 1600/1700s Sheffield was largely an ancient landscape with moors, forests and wetlands accessing a major river system. The Manor House, or Manor Lodge, was the centrepiece of one of the greatest deer parks in medieval England – but unfortunately for its survival, seated over rich mineral resources of iron and coal. Bygone Sheffield is fascinating in its complexity. Here are narrow cobbled streets, gas lamps, terraces of houses three storeys high to pack in as many people as possible, remnant medieval buildings between areas bustling with shops and horse-drawn trams, raggletaggle children playing on

dusty roads, the evocative Rag & Tag Market, and factory chimneys as far as the eye can see. Moving into the age of the camera, prestigious new buildings appear: the Town Hall, the palatial general post office and equally striking Telegraph building, impressive churches and of course ‘Coles corner’ – all set against the gradually changing fashion of those going about their business. Here too are pictures of the short-lived airport, a barge in full sail on the River Don, the famously disconcerting threesided Bramall Lane football pitch and even a peep into the Lady Mayor’s splendid parlour. A particularly busy chapter is devoted to Industry and Commerce, with its quarrymen, knife grinders, steel smelters, WW1

munitions workers, and ‘buffer girls’ in the cutlery factories. Moving on in time, the infamous problems of air pollution are gradually left behind. The city of today still has five rivers at its heart and boasts more ancient woodlands than any other industrial centre in Western Europe. The recent catalysts of sport, leisure, tourism, education and the environment have brought about massive transformation. The curtain comes down on Lost Sheffield, appropriately enough, on the stage, where weird and wonderful performers contort and pose in theatres now long gone and just about lost to memory. Lost Sheffield in Colour by Ian D. Rotherham is from Amberley Publishing, priced £15.99 (ISBN 978-1-44561771-8). Julie Bunting

Sheffield High Infant and Junior School is a happy, hard-working and vibrant community housed in splendid buildings with purpose-built libraries, science room, art and music studios and easy access to the Senior School’s substantial sports facilities. Extensive Outdoor Learning facilities were added to the Infant and Junior School in

the autumn of 2013. The School offers a broad and challenging curriculum in small classes within a structured, caring community catering for the needs of every pupil. Creativity, independent learning and investigative skills are encouraged and developed and much of the curriculum is taught by specialist teachers. French

is taught from Reception, with Spanish and German offered in later years. There is a busy Breakfast Club from 7.30am and supervised after-school care until 5.45pm. All Year 6 girls are guaranteed a place in the Senior School. The Junior School is hosting an Open Week from Monday 28 April to Friday 2 May, welcoming visitors

between 9.30am and 11.30am to see a typical school day. If you would like to visit before then, the Head, Mrs Anne Jones, is always happy to show prospective parents and their daughters what the School has to offer. For more information, go to www.sheffield highschool. or phone (0114) 266 1435.

SATS! Is Your Child Prepared? It has been a busy year already for Baslow Study Centre, which opened its doors for a second year in September. The Centre offers high quality tuition in English, Math’s, Physics, Biology and Chemistry under one roof to students from KS1 right up to A-Level. Parents have been thrilled with the positive atmosphere of the Centre and the willingness of tutors to adapt the work to support students’ particular needs. Many have commented on their child’s increased confidence and the marked improvement that the Centre has had on their schoolwork and results. With the introduction of the grammar test for Year 6s last academic year, more and more parents are seeking out additional help for their children in all subjects, particularly English. All children who are working at level 3 or above in Year 6 must take the test which will be assessing sentence grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and spelling. These areas can often prove to be the most difficult for students and they can benefit hugely from extra support. In a positive and constructive environment, Baslow Study Centre offers a team of dedicated specialists who are able to

support students’ areas of weakness and stretch their talents. With close support from qualified teachers, students are encouraged to develop their independent learning. There is no doubt that early intervention in English, Math’s and Science, can prove invaluable to avoid students acquiring poor habits and, even more importantly, to improve their confidence and enjoyment of a subject that will play an instrumental role in their academic career.

Hope Valley College recently invited back the recordbreaking class of 2008 to present them with their GCSE certificates at a special awards ceremony. In last year’s GCSE examinations 81% of the class were awarded 5+ A*to C at GCSE, including English and Maths, surpassing the previous College record by 18%. Principal Bernie Hunter commented: “The students’ results are undoubtedly impressive in both attainment and progress terms. It is our view, however, that the superb collective and individual achievement of the students and staff is not done justice by these statistics alone. “The fact they were achieved at a time when GCSE were being made ‘more robust’, amidst a back-drop

of ill thought through national initiatives, makes these results truly staggering. They are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the students, staff and parents - all of whom deserve a huge amount of credit and congratulations for their achievements.” This year certificates were presented to returning students by Ian Johnston, Deputy Director, Derbyshire County Council’s Children and Younger Adults. As well as students receiving their certificates there was also the presentation of several special awards for students who especially excelled in certain subject areas. In addition to breaking all GCSE records, over a third of students achieved the standard required for the English Baccalaureate – a performance measure

introduced in 2010. The standard requires students to achieve a GCSE grade C or higher across a core of subjects including: English, Maths, History or Geography, the Sciences and a modern foreign language. It is regarded by the government as proof that students have followed an academic curriculum. Mr Hunter added: “It is important that we celebrate the individual and collective academic success that the class of 2008 achieved. Make no mistake, every student here tonight deserved what they achieved and worked hard for their rewards – and that makes us all exceptionally proud. I wish all of them every success on their chosen pathways and hope that they cherish good memories from their time here.”

There has never been a better time to choose Buxton & Leek College. You could have left, or be about to leave school and are looking for your first steps on the road to employment or higher education. You may want high quality vocational education and training to support a new career direction or make progress in your current career. Or you may be an employer looking for quality training to develop your employee’s skills and enhance performance. Buxton & Leek College has the size and resources to provide a comprehensive, high-quality further education and training service to students of all ages and abilities, to meet all ambitions. We specialise in courses which support your educational and career development and our flexible study options mean that you can fit your learning around your home, work and social life. As a Buxton & Leek College student, you’ll have access to industry standard facilities, comprehensive support services and dedicated staff who take pride in supporting you towards your study and career goals. Over the last year, we have spent more than £500,000 upgrading facilities at our Buxton Campus, opened a

specialist training centre for motor vehicle, construction and logistics in Harpur Hill and are nearing completion of phase 1 of an ambitious £7m project to completely rebuild and refurbish our Leek Campus. We also have a very successful training service to local employers; for adults in the workplace and apprenticeships, including advanced and new higher apprenticeships. We do this through our ‘Skillsbase’ team. Education and training should not be just about passing exams. Our ambitions for our students includes helping them become rounded and valued citizens, prepared to take more confident steps in the world of work or on to University –

moving on from being school children to being adults. Our courses are tailored for progress; ensuring that in addition to their main qualifications, young people are able to learn life-skills, maths and English. They are also able to undertake work placements, community projects, volunteering and business enterprise. There is also a healthy social aspect to being at College with a wide range of clubs and societies, including team sports. Our students do really well and clearly thrive on a more ‘grown up’ approach to learning. Each year the government publish national success rate tables which allow Colleges to compare how well their

students have performed. Last year’s tables show that Buxton & Leek College, with a long-course success rate for young people of 88.4%, was placed 14th of 225 general further education colleges. This places us well ahead of many of the alternative options open to school leavers at age 16. The performance of our adult students is almost as impressive – placed 33rd in the same table. The College is uniquely placed as a fully-fledged faculty of the University of Derby. This means we can offer what other Colleges and Schools cannot; a seamless transition from College to University. In some cases this happens without needing to move location. Our campus, shared with the

University in Buxton, occupies the site that was previously the Royal Devonshire Hospital, sporting the iconic Devonshire Dome which is the largest unsupported dome of its kind in Europe. If a student achieves their qualifications with us and chooses to progress onto a degree with the University of Derby, they receive a bursary of £1,000 to spend however they like. Whatever your age, chosen subject or prior level of education; Buxton & Leek College will have something to offer you. We have great staff who are committed to supporting your learning journey. Call in for a chat, visit, come to see us at an Advice Day or call us on 0800 074 0099 for further information.

This year sees the start of the government initiative to raise the participation age for young people in education to 17 and eventually rising to 18. Students therefore are now required to stay in education or employment with training until they reach 17, and in future years, 18. Unfortunately, however, some schools are informing pupils that they have to stay on at school as a legal requirement, which isn’t the case. Simon Andrews, Principal of Macclesfield College, said: “It is extremely worrying that pupils across the country are apparently being ill-informed by their

schools on what options are available to them post-16. Schools seem to be suggesting that pupils need to stay at school until they are 18; this is simply not true. The recent report from Ofsted’s chief inspector, David Wilshaw, has been highly critical of schools and their lack of impartial advice and guidance given to pupils. Recent research by the Association of Colleges (AoC) also points out that around 50 per cent of all pupils that stay on at school at 16 leave at age 17 having failed to gain further qualifications. Most of those students, having wasted a year, find more suitable qualifications to study at

Macclesfield College provides a range of specialist courses, including aircraft maintenance engineering college and then go on to prosper.” Colleges offer a wide range of provision for young people that can often better fit their needs. While A-levels are a worthwhile qualification, many young people are now realising that vocational

more likely to have a permanent first job”. Simon Andrews continued: “Colleges such as Macclesfield have industry-standard resources, equipment and facilities that cannot be matched by schools. Students enjoy first-class tuition and

guidance from industry experts, many of whom continue to work in their specialist industries. “In fact, we also offer the opportunity to study for degree-level qualifications right here at the College. We have Higher Education options in a wide range of Foundation Degree, HNC/HND and professional courses including Business Management, Early Years, Aircraft Maintenance, Graphics, Sports, Supporting Teaching and Learning plus many more specialisms.” It is clear that government initiatives with respect to increasing the participation age are being misrepresented in schools and consequently disadvantaging pupils. Mr Andrews therefore invites pupils, parents, and indeed adult learners, to come along to Macclesfield College to see what is on offer and to be given impartial advice and guidance. Mr Andrews said: “If we cannot provide what someone is looking for we will find an organisation that can. We are only interested in what is best for the learner. This was noted by Ofsted in our recent very good inspection.” For further information about the opportunities for young people and adults at Macclesfield College, call 01625 410000 or visit

HAVE FUN WITH MATHS! Maths can be quite daunting for some children but with a little fun at home you can improve their knowledge, accuracy and speed with numbers. Here is a fun way to help: Play Slap – a game pioneered by Jo at Kip McGrath and easy to play at home. Want to improve your child’s ability with tables? Then… write the answers to the 7 and 8 times tables (for example) onto pieces of paper and stick them with blue tack around the room, or even in the garden using clothes pegs. Call out ‘’7 x 7‘’ and your child runs to the answer and ‘slaps’ it with a fly swat and shouts ‘Slap!’ (Cheap swatters available from any £shop). As they get better, you count aloud to 3 and they must ‘slap’ before you say 3. If they do, they get a point and 10 points gets a reward. It is fun, gets rid of energy and also teaches them the tables as they play! Knowing the tables saves time in maths questions, helps mental arithmetic and reduces slip ups, all good stuff for those all-important SAT’s scores!!

St Peter & St Paul School

Chesterfield based St Peter & St Paul School has a lot to celebrate. The school opens its doors daily to children not only from the town but also from the catchments of Bakewell, Matlock, Ashover, Dronfield, Sheffield and as far afield as Doncaster and Worksop, as parents opt for the combination of the very best education and exceptional value for money that the school offers. Since Andrew Lamb was appointed Headmaster in 2002, SPSP has been transformed and is now acknowledged as a leading independent prep school with membership of IAPS, an exclusive group of the top UK Independent Schools, as further evidence of the quality of provision available. So what has brought the school to achieve such success? Partly the recognition that the development of a child at SPSP does not stop with the National Curriculum, as the school provides holistic and social programmes that make the rounded individuals you will observe once you’ve travelled down the tree-lined drive to the school. Andrew Lamb and his team have created an environment where children are allowed to excel and build their talents in a range of extra-curricular subjects, enabling them to grow and develop as individuals. SPSP’s focus on small class

sizes assists in the creation of the requisite nurturing and learning environment so often lacking today. Andrew Lamb and his staff team are tremendously proud at what the children achieve at SPSP but then if you ‘ask a lot’ you should not be surprised the children ‘achieve a lot’. So why not give us a call and arrange a tour of the school to see for yourselves what a difference an education at SPSP can really make and take advantage of the opportunities on offer. School entry is not confined to the Reception Class, which is great news for those parents who feel their child’s potential may not be fully channelled at their current school.

STUDENT EARNS PLACE ON UNIVERSITY ACCESS SCHEME Hope Valley College student Jade Taylor Holden has earned a place on the University of Sheffield’s Outreach and Access to Medicine scheme (SOAMS). Jade secured her place after submitting an application outlining why she would like to pursue a career in medicine. The application underwent a stringent review process by a selection board. SOAMS’ aims to make a career in medicine more accessible to students from a broader range of backgrounds, has a limited number of places - making the application process highly competitive.

Head of Science Steve Taylor commented: “SOAMS is exceptionally popular and incredibly prestigious so it is a massive achievement for Jade to be accepted onto the scheme. Jade has a real aptitude for science and a keen interest in medicine so we are delighted that she has secured this place as it will open up a treasure trove of opportunities for her.� SOAMS requires students to participate in a range of activities and courses for three years spanning from Year 9 to 11 with the possibility of continuing throughout A-Levels. It includes modules on topics

Westbourne School




including Medicine Fact and Fiction, Chemistry, Microbiology, Medical Ethics, DNA and First Aid Skills. The programme also incorporates activity days at the University and trips including Thackray Medical Museum and the Robert Winston Facility at Sheffield Hallam University. Mr Taylor added: “SOAMS really opens students’ minds to the possibility of a career in medicine that they may not previously have thought attainable despite having the ability. It equips them with a range of skills that will give participants an advantage when it comes to applying for

graduate places later in life.� Principal Bernie Hunter said: “It is a sad fact that, for a variety of reasons completely unrelated to ability or skill, many students see careers such as medicine as unrealistic or inaccessible. SOAMS does a lot of work to change that perception in and around Sheffield and has already inspired Jade. It is our hope that through Jade’s experiences other students will start to see careers such as medicine as accessible to themselves. However today is about Jade’s achievements and I would like to congratulate her on this fantastic success.�

Since the opening of its new Pre-School, Westbourne School is now the popular choice for both girls and boys from the younger age of three, right up to 16. Nestled on the edge of the Peak District in the southwest of Sheffield, Westbourne School offers small class sizes – an average of 14 pupils – ensuring that each child is treated as an individual and as a result achieves their full potential. Excellent exam results year on year, and a highly successful alumni prove how effective Westbourne’s approach to teaching is. Academic achievement opens the door to further opportunity but that needs to be supplemented with good life skills. The policy of ‘educating girls and boys for life’ ensures that children leave Westbourne with confidence and able to make a valuable contribution to any community. The co-ed environment in which Westbourne children learn cements the close-knit family atmosphere that the school promotes. By learning, playing and developing together, boys

and girls are able to support one another and grow up functioning effectively together - as is the natural order of life. As well as giving each and every pupil the confidence to ‘give things a go’ with their enviable array of extracurricular activities, there is a strong focus on instilling traditional values, such as respect and manners – These are just some of the many elements that contribute to Westbourne’s friendly, family atmosphere and ultimately to its success. Did you know that there is a new school bus service operating from Matlock, making travel to and from Westbourne easier? Starting at 7.20am from Sainsbury’s in Cawdor Way at Matlock, the bus visits Darley Dale, Rowsley, Bakewell, Baslow, Calver, Grindleford, Fox House and Ringinglow en-route to Westbourne. Pupils from other schools are welcome to come on board! For more information contact: 60 Westbourne Road, Sheffield, S10 2QT Tel: 0114 266 0374

Twelve-year-old Amy Bingham, a student at Lady Manners School, is now able to join lessons without leaving her house. Amy is not always able to attend school as she suffers from Netherton Syndrome, a rare skin disease. Keen that she shouldn’t miss out, staff from Lady Manners School have worked with Amy and her parents to make it possible for her to join in from home. Special funding was sought to enable Amy to have a computer at home, which has been equipped according to Amy’s needs. The system was installed


by Richard Hildebrand, ICT Network Manager at Lady Manners School. He ensured that the computer was set up with programs that other students use in school. There are also plans to allow Amy to use a ‘videoconference’ type link into the classroom in some lessons. Amy said: “I do like to come into school to see my friends but, when I can’t, I am very much looking forward to joining in with lessons from home. I also want to create a website of my artwork, in my spare time.”

%LUNGDOHLV6KHI´HOG­V only school specialising in quality education and care exclusively for boys. Birkdale is a happy school with a family atmosphere. Each boy is valued, cared for and nurtured. Standards of teaching and learning are high. Boys are inspired to enjoy learning and think big.


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: •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

GCSE’s or more, A* to C grade with 90% of all entries gaining A* to B. •Individual attention – Our care for each individual’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. •Small class sizes •Extra-curricular opportunities - Life at Birkdale is full. There is an enormous range of extra-curricular 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 events or contact us for a personal tour and see for yourself what a Birkdale education has to offer.

ASHDELL Preparatory School ‘Straw hats, red blazers’, even in this busy modern world, Ashdell prides itself on maintaining many of its longstanding traditions. Yet under the straw hats you will see a school that is just as eagerly embracing the 21st century as it is celebrating its past. All classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards; the girls use laptops, pc’s and Ipads on a daily basis. Ashdell is the only school specializing in primary girls’ education in the area, and because of this uniqueness, Ashdell aims to develop the whole girl and to prepare her for the challenges in life ahead. Ashdell is proud of its everevolving enrichment programme, where the thread of enriched learning is one that every member of staff in the school weaves throughout their lessons daily. Outside lesson time, Ashdell girls have been very eager to join the extensive range of after school and lunch time clubs such as: board games,

book club, craft, dance fit, drama, embroidery, gymnastics, ICT, choir, netball and various music clubs. All of these activities as well as our core academic lessons help our girls to develop holistically as well as intellectually. Ashdell girls are confident, happy, polite and courteous, much of this is down to the staff that teaches and cares for them. Ashdell is more than just a school. We are a family, and we do our best to encourage our girls to value, respect and look after their school family as much as they do their own. Ashdell girls take an ordinary day and make it shine….. Ashdell is now registering for September 2014 and 2015. To arrange a look around on a normal school day and see what your daughter can be a part of please ring Headteacher Anne Camm on.

Anthony Gell School is a relatively small secondary school serving Wirksworth and the surrounding villages. They currently have around 690 students on role including the sixth form. The school prides itself on delivering a high quality education for its students whilst also providing great pastoral care in a friendly and caring environment. The school’s GCSE results have

been very strong in recent years and it regularly gains one of the best ‘value added’ scores in the County – in the top 5 last summer. The school has a small but strong sixth form of around 100 students but still manages to offer over 20 different A-level courses. Headteacher David Baker says, “We aim to help our students to become independent learners. The

world of work is changing so rapidly that young people need to be able to adapt and learn new skills and knowledge throughout their lives”. The school also has a very wide range of extracurricular activities and clubs including sports, music, drama, art and dance. They also run a wide range of trips both locally and abroad including French and German exchanges, a sports tour to

Holland and an annual ski trip to Austria. The Head says that he is incredibly proud of all that the students at the school achieve. Inspectors who visited the school last year said that students ‘display a remarkable level of maturity and speak very warmly of the positive atmosphere and strong values of the school. It is a very harmonious learning community’.

NEW JOB AND NEW LIFE FOR NATASHA Last year Natasha was unemployed but after attending several courses with Derbyshire County Council’s Adult Community Education Service, she found a full-time job and a whole new lease of life. Natasha has had various jobs in the past but was unemployed when she started a course at the Ashbourne Adult Community Education Centre. Natasha said: “When I first joined a course I was very unsure and nervous but was soon put at ease”. Natasha’s confidence has grown over the last two years as she has completed a number of courses including English functional skills, maths functional skills and childcare level 1. Currently Natasha is working towards GCSE English and ITQ level 1. Natasha added: “Having up to date qualifications on my CV has really helped me find work and has made me feel

much more confident in my skills”. Attending Derbyshire Adult Community Education classes has made a real difference to Natasha’s belief in her abilities. Natasha commented: “My maths tutor Andre Smith was really good. He explained things well, I found maths difficult at school but in the Adult Community

Education class there was plenty of support and help”. So what’s next for Natasha? “I am looking forward to starting work next week but I don’t want to stop learning and I’m considering studying GCSE maths or ITQ level 2 next year”. Natasha begins her fulltime job next week and is confident that this is just the

start of a new life. Derbyshire County Council’s Adult Community Education Service runs a wide range of courses including Maths, English, Computers, Childcare, First Aid at Work and Food Hygiene.

From The Kel Elliott Band

After their sell out gig in Crich last February, Live & Local is delighted to welcome The Kel Elliott Band back on a mini tour of Derbyshire in the next few months, beginning at The Imperial Rooms in Matlock on 22 February, and finishing in Wormhill Village Hall (near Tideswell) on 17 May. Kel Elliott is a singing double bass player fronting an impressively energetic and dynamic jazz/blues band. Kel has what can only be described as distinctly rich & powerful vocals (think Alison Moyet bathed in chocolate!). She’s backed by a tight band of piano, percussion and rhythm guitar, and together they perform fresh self-penned songs with catchy melodies and infectious grooves, as well as quirky versions of well-known hits! As well as great music, Kel interacts so well with her audience; you are in for a thoroughly entertaining evening, in every sense! Kel’s upbeat tales of life

and lost love are lighthearted and infectious. “A star in the making,” Musicians Union Magazine. Live & Local rural touring scheme works with voluntary groups from

across Derbyshire helping them choose professional performances including music of all genres, theatre, storytelling, children’s shows and much more. These shows take place in

the heart of the community at town/village halls, churches and community centres. Show details available: http://www.liveandlocal.or

CROMFORD WI Vice President Judy Noble welcomed members and visitors to the February meeting of Cromford WI and introduced speakers Christine and Ken Levasseur, with the second part of their long distance walk along Offa’s Dyke. This time it was the northern section, some on the English border but going into Wales and ending on the coast at Prestatyn. Ken had taken wonderful photographs of the spectacular scenery, ancient hill forts and industrial archaeology, including the beautiful

Montgomery Canal. The walk, undertaken in the only hot spell in 2012, covered 179 miles and included climbs which totalled more than the height of Everest. Judy Noble thanked Christine, who moved smoothly into President mode for the remainder of the meeting. The January walk took the form of a very interesting tour of Belper’s industrial history from St John’s Chapel through nailmaking to the Strutts. After walking through the River Gardens, members were lucky enough to see

the resident peregrine falcon. In February members look forward to lunch at the Carsington Mainsail restaurant, followed by a visit to Hopton Hall to see the snowdrops, and a walk through Bakewell is planned for March. Crafty members also meet monthly for “Knit and Natter”, which covers other crafts. Several members are going to a performance of “We Will Be Free”, a play about the Tolpuddle Martyrs, at the Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall in Holloway, and plans are being made

for the supper with darts and dominoes on 24th March. The next monthly WI meeting will be held at Cromford Institute on Wednesday 5th March at 7.30pm, when Bob and Julie Whitmore will speak about Derbyshire Blood Bikes. The competition will be for a miniature garden. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month except August, and new members and visitors are welcome – contact Janet Chambers on 01629 822319 for more information.

Supporting Darley Dale in Bloom 2014 Darley Dale is going to enter the regional round of the In Bloom competition again in 2014. Having gained a Silver Gilt award in 2013 in the Small Town category, and the Most Improved for East Midlands overall, the aim is to increase the tempo in the future and to go for a Gold Award, a very achievable ambition according to the judges in 2013. To allow us to achieve these ambitions, we will be promoting a number of fundraising activities throughout the year, one of which will be the Second Annual Fun Dog Show on 5th April 2014 in the grounds of the Whitworth Centre. This event was first held 6th April 2013 when some 70 entries were received across 7 different classes. Targeted as fun for all ages, the classes included: Waggly Tail Best Puppy Best Handler under 10) Best Handler (under 15) Catch the biscuit

Winners - Best Handler Under 10 Years Sit and Wait Advanced agility Several local companies provided sponsorship which enabled prizes to be given to the winners along with rosettes and certificates. The second show is

planned to be a significant enhancement over the first alongside more fun classes, there will be a demonstration of Heelwork To Music by local dog trainer Annette Lowe. It is also hoped to include some further activities and

stalls to ensure that a good day is had by all. Further details of the Fun Dog Show, including entry forms, will be progressively posted on the Darley Dale In Bloom website www.darley

CHARITY COFFEE MORNING AND BRING AND BUY SALE - Raising Funds for the British Heart Foundation The British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Matlock and District Fundraising Branch are inviting the people of Derbyshire to attend a coffee morning to raise funds to help save lives. The coffee morning and bring and buy sale is being held on Saturday 1 March between 10am and 12pm at Dale Road Methodist Church Hall, Darley Dale (DE4 2FT). There is a £1 entry fee, and people are urged to bring along any unwanted Christmas presents or other goods to be sold by the organisers to raise further funds. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer.

It kills nearly one in six men and more than one in ten women and is responsible for almost 74,000 deaths in the UK each year, an average of 200 people each day. There are currently 2.3 million people in the UK living with coronary heart disease. The coffee morning is being organised by the branch as part of the BHF’s ‘Ramp up the Red’ campaign to raise funds that will go directly towards vital research, support and care for those suffering with heart disease. Lorraine McGlone, event organiser and treasurer of the Matlock and District BHF

Branch, said, “Last year’s coffee morning raised £445 and we are hoping to raise even more for the BHF this year, helping them to fund the research that is so urgently needed to fight heart disease. Our branch members will be there on the day, and would love to chat to people about the work we do locally to raise funds, as we are always looking for new members. I hope the event is a huge success and supported by the community.” Sophie Jardine, BHF Fundraising Manager in Derbyshire, said: “Our Ramp up the Red campaign is a fantastic opportunity for

everyone to think about how many lives are affected by heart disease. By organising a fundraising event yourself, or by attending the coffee morning and bring and buy sale on 1 March, you will be helping to save lives. The BHF is the biggest funder of life-saving heart research in the UK. This research has already made medical history but funds are urgently needed to fund further research.” Ramp up the Red to help fight coronary heart disease, the UK’s single biggest killer.

MATLOCK AND DISTRICT HARD OF HEARING CLUB We started the afternoon by singing ‘Happy Birthday’, and raising a glass of sherry to Val Alcock, a member who was 70 last month. The First World War was the subject of James Clark’s talk entitled ‘Lions led by Donkeys’. An intriguing title - it turned out that the lions were the soldiers doing the fighting and the donkeys were the generals, supposedly doing nothing much in a cosy spot, far from the front line. James was particularly interested in one general, namely General Haig, and he posed the question, was he a ‘butcher’, as some said, or not. There was certainly a great loss

of life, with 23,000 killed on the first day of the battle of the Somme, and 100,000 killed altogether for gaining only 5 miles of ground. Kitchener’s army was very eager, but the Germans were ‘dug in’ on the hills, which were fortified, and the British and French armies didn’t stand a chance. However, as the war progressed, new tactics, tunnels, mines, tanks and communications were put in place, all of which Haig championed. James compared Haig with Montgomery (2nd World War), and thought Haig was a better General. Alan Clark (no relation to James) made up the


At the meeting held on Tuesday 4 February 2014 Mrs. Irene Dougan gave an illustrated talk entitled “Derbyshire Delights”. The subject of the talk was the National Gardens Scheme which opens gardens in England and Wales for charity. Mrs. Dougan began her talk with a brief history of the Scheme and its aims together with some key statistics which exemplified the scope of the Scheme and the way in which it is succeeding in supporting a selected range of charities through its fund-raising activities. Last year it raised £2.1 million and its donations include, for example, £450,000 each to McMillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Information for visitors is published in “ The Yellow Book” which has in the region of 3,500 entries per year. In addition to this, Derbyshire and

Nottinghamshire also produce a guide dealing specifically with the two counties. Gardens must satisfy certain criteria for inclusion in the guides. In visiting gardens in Derbyshire as a representative of the Scheme, Mrs. Dougan has acquired a detailed and intimate knowledge of such gardens and their owners. She was able, therefore, to present a series of excellent slides with a very full commentary on an astonishingly varied range of gardens which, regardless of size and location, all had special qualities meriting inclusion in the Scheme. A vote of thanks on behalf of members was proposed by Club Chairman Jim Pocklington. Details of the activities and programme of the Club can be found on its web site at “wwwmatlockforum”

phrase of this title (Lions led by Donkeys) in his book, ‘The Lions’. People wanted a scapegoat but the generals didn’t kill men - the Germans did. Haig was caring and after the war, with the help of his wife, he set up the Poppy Appeal charity to assist those returning from the war, who were harmed both physically and mentally. It is still going strong to this day. James

ended his talk by saying, ‘Haig - I salute you!’ Roland Corfield, chairman, thanked him for an interesting talk, which was pertinent this year, commemorating 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. The raffle was drawn and teas were served. The next meeting on 3rd March at 2pm in the Imperial Rooms, Matlock will be the AGM.


Find out about Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves with Matt Johnson, the Trust’s Conservation Farming Officer, and the Wye and Upper Derwent Group. Matt’s talk will have specific emphasis on Woodside, the Trust’s biggest reserve, part of which is being managed as a working farm with cattle and sheep providing

conservation grazing. The illustrated talk takes place on Monday 24th February at Darley Dale Methodist Church Hall, Dale Road North (A6), Darley Dale. Starting at 7.30pm, admission is £2.50 including refreshments, and everyone is welcome. For more information contact the Trust on 01773 881188.

I have written the following poem ‘Footprints in Snow’ for Valentine’s Day 2014.


d d


As snowflakes Are formed In intricate patterns on the window Slowly melting into changing shapes Held by delicate strands We link hands and dance Leaving tiny footprints in snow As our lives step out their paces On that crisp white floor We tread but fleeting traces As our love clings to the pane And trickles softly to rain.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital Cancer Unit. The money was raised during the Players’ October production of Calendar Girls by Tim Firth, at Hathersage Memorial Hall. The play, directed by Val Robinson and Pat McLoughlin, was a sell-out success and money was donated from every ticket sold, as well as from sales of programmes and refreshments. Determined to raise as much money as possible, the group also held a “W. I. cake and gift stall” in the interval each night and took additional donations in charity collection buckets. The true story of W.I.

members in Yorkshire who posed nude for a calendar and raised thousands of pounds for leukemia and lymphoma research has inspired amateur drama groups across the world to follow suit and bare all for charity. Speaking at the cheque presentation, Martin Robinson from Weston Park Hospital said: “We are very grateful for this generous donation. On behalf of everyone at the hospital I would like to thank not only the Hathersage Players, but also the wider community who supported this fantastic fundraising effort.”

peppered with exposed rocks, it amused me to see that instead of going around large boulders, at times the wall was laid over the top of them. A restored Victorian pump house with high arched windows suddenly came into

view. This was built to house a large engine which pumped compressed air through cast iron pipes to drive rock drills in small local quarries where stone was extracted to construct the Cromford and High Peak railway line. It may look impressive but to the rear are an insignificant looking line-up of stones which archaeologically are far more interesting. These are the foundations of Roystone Grange’s medieval hall and barn, built by the Cistercian Abbey at Garendon in Leicester during the 12th century, one of the earliest Cistercian monasteries in England. Founded in 1133 in Charnwood Forest, Garendon

acquired two further estates at Biggin and Heathcote and Cardlemere lane nearby led directly to them. Land hereabouts was farmed by monks to raise huge flocks of sheep, mainly for their fleeces. There are still sheep dotted about as far

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions ? Have you broken any yet? Justin Welby, the New Archbishop of Canterbury appealed to us in his New Year’s message to “set our eyes on changing the world around us” and we at the Big Green Festival want to do exactly that – help you to make small changes which will have enormous impact on the world around us if we all join in. Each month we’ll offer you a new “small step”. Here’s our first……. Call a halt on carrier bags – bet you’ve got dozens at home – do you seriously want any more? Experts estimate that 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used and discarded world-wide each year (more than a million bags a minute). That’s using more than 1 billion barrels of oil at a cost to retailers of around £3.2 billion and those costs are passed onto you the consumer in the prices you pay at shops and

supermarkets. But that’s a tiny part of the real cost. Plastic bags foul up our landscape and kill thousands of animals each year – farmers in our area will tell you of stock lost because they eat discarded bags mistaking them for food. The same is true of marine life – thousands of whales; dolphins; sea turtles and other sea creatures die each year because of discarded plastic bags. David Barnes, a marine scientist with the British Antarctic Survey, says plastic bags have gone from being rare in the early 1990s to being almost everywhere in that last bastion of humanfree landscape. We all know of the hundreds of acres of landfill it takes to bury our waste and that most plastic bags are not biodegradable. They actually go through a process called photodegradation – breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic particles which contaminate both soil and water and end up entering the food chain when farm animals accidentally ingest them. Enough facts to convince you not to use carrier bags? Ok. What can we do? Get a hessian or cotton bag and keep it in your coat pocket ready for your shopping trips.

A bag for life will do – but they’re mostly made of plastic and although retailers swap them when they break they are still adding to the plastics pollution. Get yourself in the habit now – the British government has said it will be introducing a tax on plastic bags after the 2015 election – 5p per bag which will go to environmental charities but it’s all too little too late. The Irish government imposed their plastic bag consumption tax – the PlasTax in 2002 (yes twelve years ago). It has reduced consumption by 90 per cent; reduced litter and has saved

in the construction of Birmingham’s NEC, Warwick University and the London Underground. After my brief but very interesting aerial view of the quarries I turned in the direction of Roystone Grange, following a hard surfaced road beside incredible drystone walls made of textured and weathered limestone. It is known that there was a Roman presence in this area and reputedly some of these walls were laid at that time as indicated by the massive ‘orthostat’ stones in the base of some walls, mostly rounded in shape. Built in as straight a line as possible through a landscape

as the eye can see, but the monks have long since gone due to Henry VIII and the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Yet more industrial heritage was to follow when I reached Minninglow Lane and descended the rough track leading through the remains of silica pits, now a conservation site. Deposits of high-firing silica sand were found here which was manufactured into refractory bricks in a brick-kiln complex to the side of the railway line. These bricks were used in the Sheffield Steel industry. Refractory bricks are still manufactured to this day but from the Friden site of DSF Refractories & Minerals a few miles away. The panoramic landscape here is dominated by huge embankments carrying the former railway line, now the High Peak Trail. Even more impressive though is the hilltop landmark of Minninglow, one of my favourite spots in the whole of the Peak District. Dating back to Neolothic times, this was where early Stone Age man buried their dead as close to the heavens as possible. This ancient burial mound has the remains of five chambers which once contained numerous skeletons. The site is thought to be older than most of the Bronze Age tumuli known as ‘lows’ which sit atop Derbyshire hills. It is an interesting thought that when the Romans laid their road from Derventio (Derby) to Aquae Arnemetiae (Buxton) only a short distance away, this graveyard had probably been in existence for 2,000 years! The last part of my leisurely and educational hike was a doddle as I returned to my car by stepping out on the Trail along one of my favourite stretches, as I love the far reaching views and the high embankments, an incredible feat of engineering, stone masonry and wall building that have stood the ravages of time and extreme weather for nearly two hundred years.

My walk got off to a lovely start as I approached the Minninglow car park on the High Peak Trail and observed a large flock of small birds in a mesmerising, murmuring display over fields alongside. In the car park is a fascinating new information plaque, sponsored by the National Park and Nottingham Trent University about the winter sky that can be seen above Minninglow, especially the Orion Nebula. I set off along Parwich Lane at a nice brisk pace. With many fields and paths flooded, soddened or just gloopy with mud I had chosen this route because for the main part it was easy terrain. In fact, for the first mile I stepped out with gusto, enjoying the comfort and support of a glorious hard surface beneath my feet! I even saw my first lambs of the season and some catkin as I walked past a scattering of isolated houses tucked away in these rugged limestone hills where jagged rocks emerge from the hilltops like bones, eroded long ago by glacial melt. Arriving at a junction just after Twodale Barn I turned left over a stile to follow a bridlepath steeply downhill to a narrow dry dale where I came across the remains of a lime kiln, long since abandoned, but a sign of an industrial past. The track continued between high grassy banks where a rusty notice warned that blasting may take place in the nearby quarries during the day and I wondered just how protective my soft hat might be! Fortunately no sirens went off whilst I made my way over a man-made land bridge creating safe access for commercial traffic beneath between Ballidon Quarry and Hoe Grange Quarry. The rock worked here belongs to the Beelow Limestones found in the upper part of the carboniferous limestones of the White Peak, deposited some 330 million years ago. Opened in the 1940s by a butcher from Ashbourne, Ballidon produces a million tonnes a year of stone which is known for its exceptional chemical purity and whiteness. As well as being used in fertilizers, animal feeds, adhesives, floor tiles, paint and as a flux in iron foundries, stone and concrete blocks from here were used

around 18 million litres of crude oil. Similar charges are already in effect in Wales and Northern Ireland and retailers in Scotland will be charging for bags from October 2014. Let’s make a difference today – buy yourself a shopping bag; dust off granny’s old wicker basket or knit your own string bag. Whatever you decide, ditch the plastic bag today. One small step - one big impact on our community. To knit your own string bag or to take part in the Festival see our website at (or phone 01629 636550).
