Down Memory Lane… Stanton in Peak

It was around this time of the year that in 1996 we featured Stanton in Peak as one of our Time Out of Mind Tales. Early records revealed that in the year 968 King Edgar gave property at both ‘Stantune’ and Birchover to Bishop Wulfric. By the time of the Domesday Survey, Stanton had 10 peasant families, poor but free, and 10 serfs bound to Henry de Ferrers, Lord of the Manor. Until 1838 the village lay within the parish of Youlgrave but did have a chapel of ease, its site now lost. The first of three nonconformist chapels was built in 1829 and an Anglican church 10 years later by W.Pole Thornhill of Stanton Hall. By the 1870s, the village had a Reading Room and parochial school; an

earlier school with a live-in headmaster had occupied Beighton House beside the road to Pilhough. Our interviewees of 1996 recalled memories of longgone village shops – often just a room in one of the cottages, such as those of Nance Prince who sold sweets and tobacco, or Mrs Gladwin who ran the post office from her home. Sally Holmes stocked a variety of goods in the single downstairs room of her small cottage just off Main Street, with a few jars of sweets displayed in her little window and a barrel of paraffin kept safely in her shed. Opposite The Flying Childers pub – named after a famous racehorse owned by the 4th Duke of

Devonshire – were butchers F. Holland & Sons who raised their own cattle on the moor fields. Stanton lay within the regular rounds of Ormes, Burgons, Broughtons and Nelson’s butchery, all of Bakewell. Monday brought Mr Curtis from Ashford, his travelling lorry laid out with tin buckets and baths, pumice for spotless doorsteps, polishes and candles, soap and blue-bags for the wash, black lead and Shineo for the kitchen range. A pot-man occasionally trudged up to the village with a wicker basket full of crockery on his head. Bread was delivered three times a week by Bodens of Youlgrave, and ‘Ceece” (Cecil) Prince of Home Farm had a daily milk round, calling door to door with his measures and pails of milk. Villagers could also rely on deliveries from Derwent Valley Co-op in Youlgrave – popular because members shared in a ‘divi’ (dividend) that could be drawn out just before Christmas. The first whiff … The Scavenger played a vital role before the installation of main sewers. He would arrive very early in the morning by horse-drawn cart to empty the middens, tipping the contents of dozens of buckets into a

cyclindrical drum fixed to his cart. If the horse became restless between calls, the load was inclined to set up a wave that spilled out through the hinged flaps. The bangs and rattles of the scavenger wagon alerted everyone to get out of bed and close their doors and windows before they got the first whiff, especially in summer. Local quarries provided work for generations of villagers. There was a time when stone was carried down to Rowsley goods yard on trailers drawn by ‘steamers’ – steam engines.

Hathersage Lido, an outdoor swimming pool nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park, recently took delivery of 5 Helios lights from IMT Lighting (UK) LTD, a gift from the low maintenance lighting manufacturers. The Helios lights, as with all IMT’s general lighting, use IQL (induction) technology. This technology has been tried and tested in the harshest of environments, North Sea offshore oil gas, for nearly 20 years. The lamps used in the fittings have no filaments, which helps to offer an incredible long life, 100,000 hours in fact. In the UK, used in the hours of darkness, the fittings will burn for close to 23 years without any requirement to change the ‘bulb’. The fittings are also ‘sealed for life’ IMT’s patented process of protection for the electronics, which helps with the long life of the lamps. The biggest advantage of not having to replace lamps, is the safety of personnel as there is little requirement for them to access fittings at height, which the same cannot be said about


conventional lighting. The ClearSky range is an environmentally friendly source of lighting where the red segment of the light spectrum has been removed. By removing the red light, it gives off far less pollution and also doesn’t attract wildlife, which is a problem with conventional lighting. This lighting is used extensively on the continent in rural areas due to the low light pollution given off. The

difference in lighting used at Hathersage Lido is very noticeable, with there no longer being a ‘glow’ around the area in the evenings. As well as being long life lighting solutions, the fittings are 95% recyclable at the end of life, which makes them truly an environmentally friendly fitting. David Jackson Chair, of


the Hathersage Swimming Pool Committee, has said “The new lights are excellent and have been very well received by everyone at the pool. They have made a great deal of difference to our night-time swims with many positive comments received back from by the customers and local residents. They are an asset to the Pool.”

Further to our recent ‘Down Memory Lane’ feature on Edale, Peak Advertiser reader Mrs Vera Loomes has kindly provided us with further information from her own family tree. It is thanks to her long personal link with Edale that Mrs Loomes has been able to take us back further than our article, in fact into the early 1900s, when the general shop that we mentioned was run by Mrs Rose Smith, wife of Henry, and her four daughters. Between them they did all the baking needed by the many workers at Edale mill, as well as for local families living across a wide area. Not just that, but Mrs Smith used the front bedroom above their shop as a thriving tearoom, catering for the large numbers of walkers and hikers who played such a large part in putting Edale on the map.

WIRKSWORTH RECREATION GROUND SECURES DERBYSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL GRANT FOR NEW BUILDING Wirksworth Recreation Ground Development Partnership is set to improve its facilities with a new building thanks to a £38,986 Community Building Grant from Derbyshire County Council. The council launched the £1m fund in 2012, offering voluntary and community organisations one-off capital grants of between £10,000 and £250,000 for building projects or permanent equipment such as play, sports or social facilities which residents will be able to use for at least 10 years. The building will house a changing area, shower, kitchenette, storage facilities, a meeting room, study area and a viewing area. Andrew Redfern, volunteer fundraiser said: “More and more people are using the ground and it’s been difficult to maintain upkeep and provide the quality of facilities needed. “We’re delighted to secure this grant. It means we can now start to give the 3,500 people who use the ground each year the facilities they deserve.” Derbyshire County Council Deputy Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Paul Smith said: “It’s often difficult for community groups to raise the amount of money they need to improve their facilities so it’s great that we’ve been able to contribute this money so that local people can benefit”.

On 26th November South Darley C.E. Primary School had the great privilege of visiting a real working factory. Klime-ezee, owned by Mr Ashley Bailey, makes stepladders of all different kinds; some are even used for boarding military aircraft. The pupils were first shown a machine that bent rods of metal from Belgium that were then welded together and steps were added. Then it was moved into a room and coated in coloured powder and was heated to give it a permanent, glossy shade. Finally the wheels and brakes were added and the construction was complete. The employees gave positive feedback of the conditions of this particular factory. The pupils were amazed. “We were in awe of the quality of the products and were fascinated at the versatility of modern day factories,” said one of the pupils. It was a brilliant trip and all the pupils were sad to leave. Well done Klimeezee!

When John Simmons, Vice Chairman of the local charity “First Taste” came to speak to Matlock Rotary, members were so impressed that they decided they would like to help. We heard that the charity was started in 1997 by six local people who had experience of older relatives in care. Their vision was to bring into homes qualified arts tutors to conduct interactive creative sessions and to encourage the development of the holistic skills of homes and day centres care staff. Matlock Rotarians decided that a share of the proceeds of the Ashover Car Rally would be allocated to them. As a result, at a recent meeting, John was invited back to receive a cheque for £1250 from Matlock Rotary President, Cynthia Machent. When making the presentation, President

Cynthia said that most people have experienced friends and relatives in a care environment and it was wonderful to hear that First Taste was brightening people’s lives by introducing new activities such as computers, photography, armchair exercise, hand massage and

gardening. First Taste is a Charity that promotes arts, educational and stimulating activities for frail older people in nursing, residential care homes and day centres that are in the main located in Derbyshire. When accepting the donation, Mr. Simmons

explained that the money is being used to produce a DVD for use by care staff working with older people with dementia, and features well known songs and tunes performed by First Taste’s music tutors with the voiceover by a Physiotherapist, leading the simple chair based exercises.

OPENING At Woodlands

MONDAY-SATURDAY with late nights available



At the end of November, Tideswell Community Players presented The Stirrings in Sheffield on Saturday Night, in the dark and atmospheric Cathedral of the Peak. Written by Alan Cullen in the 1960’s, the play portrays the desperate working conditions of the saw grinders and other workers

for your insurance needs...

of 100 years earlier. The stone and steel dust mostly finished a man off in his late 30’s. If he was a cutlery fork grinder, he would be lucky to reach 30! (If there was a lockout and families were starving, men would go to work for a paint company where the lead pollution was so high their life expectancy was just 6 months – “they died like sheep”). Unions existed, but they were not officially recognised, so their leaders followed the example of the Luddites of decades earlier but this time with “Murder, Bombs and Intrigue”. Many back-sliding union men met

with violence and gunpowder in the “Sheffield Outrages”. One of the chief instigators of these outrages was William Broadhead, the union treasurer and keeper of the Royal George pub on Carver Street. He desperately wanted the unions to be recognised and was prepared to go to any lengths to achieve it, including the murder of an unscrupulous employer. This employer was “Obnoxious to the Trade” in employing too many apprentices on the cheap whilst turning away older family men. These “Outrages” mostly came to an end when the

new editor of the Sheffield Telegraph pushed for a Court of Inquiry and interviewed many of the intimidated workers himself, (there was no real prosecution service in those days). The court found Broadhead guilty and he was deported. He was actually quite lucky because 60 years later he might have been executed. All of this was touchingly portrayed by the players, who used Music Hall type songs to bring home the message. Even the tune of the National Anthem was used for: God save great Thomas Payne, His “Rights of Man” to explain” etc. Wrapped into the play are amusing scenes about the rivalry between two opposing gas companies as they attempt to lay their pipe tracks. Even the opening of the new Botanical Gardens is dealt with in song and dance. Ironically, those of us who saw this play in the 1960’s, saw it at a time when unions were quite well respected and bombing on mainland Britain was unheard of. The following 10 years changed all that! The singing, acting and production of this important play was very good indeed, and even their remarkable advertising poster is worthy of framing and hanging in the best room! Brian Woodall

They will be ringing out the old year and ringing in the new in style at Ashover’s ancient All Saints Church this year. The ringing chamber now boasts a new set of blue and gold bell ropes which were installed this week and replace ropes which are around 20 years old and, says Tower Captain Barry Watts, “could no longer be patched up”. The ropes were ordered over a year ago and have cost £1750. Church ringers are planning fund-raising events, which could include a musical marathon and craft fair, to help pay for them. “There are only two or

three companies in the country making bell ropes and so you have no option but to wait” said Barry. “The blue and gold sallies on all ten ropes are a great improvement from the variety of colours that existed before.” Some of the old ropes will be retained as spares. Others will be donated to any local churches in need. The ropes were installed by ringing stalwarts Jim Heading of Ashover (pictured among the bells) and Sean Jones of North Wingfield while Barry Watts (left) and David Boffy assisted with operations in the ringing chamber.

Our illustration is many years old and was copied in the 1990s from an old book on sale in Bakewell Antiques Centre. Sketched in 1760, it shows a quaint character known as Singing Sam of Derbyshire, clearly in full musical flow. A familiar character around the Peak, Sam was a wandering minstrel of sorts, earning his living by singing ballads to the accompaniment of his strange home-made fiddle, on which he produced a tune by drawing the bow across a string kept taut by an inflated cow-bladder. Sam was credited with composing his most popular offering, The Beggar’s Ramble, suitable to be sung almost anywhere since it mentions dozens of local towns and villages by name. One version had 25 verses, including:

‘There’s Hollington and Middleton-by-Youlgreave I’ve heard tell, There’s Bonsall and there’s Winster, from and to Bakewell, There’s Wardlemire* and Uckler*, from there to Hoyland came, And when I did thither get, I began to feel quite lame.’ (*Wardlow Mires and Hucklow.) Although the words of his ballad are on record, there is little to learn about Singing Sam himself other than what can be seen in his portrait. What merry courants Another itinerant balladeer of slightly later times was known as Tummy Taddington, nicknamed after his home village, though baptised Thomas Higginbottom. His lively performances were mainly reserved for Christmas in the years around 1800.

Sawing away on his fiddle, Tummy was happy to perform one of his ditties for a small coin or an oatcake. The words of this song were recorded by a resident of Ashford in the early 19th century: ‘Tummus, come sell your fiddle, And buy your wife a gown; I’ll no sell my fiddle, For ne’er a wife i’ th’ town.

For should I sell my fiddle, I think I should go mad, To think what merry courants My fiddle and I have had.’ Tummy Taddington was described as an odd little character dressed in a red jacket – no image of him is known to exist and only the above verse survives to his memory. Julie Bunting

and huge crowds of people attended over the three days of the event with coaches visiting from all parts of the country. On Saturday the traditional Santa’s Christmas Parade through the streets of Matlock and on board a coach and horses driven by Caroline Dale from Red House stables at Darley Dale was Sarah Teale, BBC TV News Presenter, and the Mayor of Matlock Councillor David Jones. Sarah also switched on Matlock Christmas Lights from the bandstand which was surrounded by a large crowd. The procession was led by Derby Midshipmen Carnival Band. Making the Parade even more impressive were two illuminated models by the Matlock Bath Boat Builders Association, giving the crowds a real treat with an appearance of their first prize winning model “Longwei”, an impressive Chinese Dragon which looked just as impressive on a trailer as it did on the river, and also appearing was another popular model from this year’s show at Matlock Bath, “Penguin Fun” During the weekend Santa’s Grotto was as always a popular feature as was James McKay with his Owls. There was a full entertainment programme over the three days including Chester the Clown, Phil Blackmore with Juggling and Fire Eating, a selection of bands and the ever popular fairground organ in Crown Square. Councillor Geoff Stevens, the Chairman of the organising Committee said that this year it had been a very real challenge to stage the show after the damage which had been caused by the freak gales on Thursday afternoon, but there had been a tremendous effort by so many people. “My special thanks go to the small but dedicated staff of Matlock Town Council, Derbyshire Dales District Council for their practical assistance, and all our contractors and stall holders for their help and understanding. “We were also delighted with the public response to the whole weekend and the crowds were the largest in the event’s eighteen-year history.” On Sunday as in previous years the event finished with a spectacular Firework Display.

Christmas is really starting to swing with the High Peak’s international award-winning Kinder Children’s Choirs. Members amongst the 100strong group of choirs are getting more excited and looking forward to this year’s Christmas concert season more than ever. The season of Christmas concerts began on Saturday December 14 with the combined choirs and trainees singing at Tideswell Parish Church at 7.30pm; followed by the Candlelight Christmas concert on Friday, 20 December with the Concert Choir, Youth Choir and Junior Choirs performing at Chapel-en-leFrith Methodist Church, Town End, at 7.30pm;

finishing with the Family Christmas Concert at the Octagon, Pavilion Gardens, Buxton on Sunday, 22 December at 4.00pm with Santa and Eyore, the celebrity Donkey. Joyce Ellis, Founder Director of the awardwinning choirs, said: “There are questions, and more questions from choristers as the excitement and drama builds: ‘Can we sing O Holy Night and Mambo, Santa Mambo?’ ’Is the donkey coming this year?’ ‘Do we still get chocolate when we come off stage’? Joyce went on to say that the choristers want this to be the best Christmas ever. “This year we have many Alumni choristers coming to

join in the Christmas Selection Box concert at the Octagon on 22 December. These former members think that it isn’t Christmas until they have been to a Kinder Choir Christmas Concert, sung the traditional carols, danced the Schneewalzer and joined in with the Christmas Selection Box chosen from everyone’s favourite Christmas tunes.” For tickets phone 01663 743041. Also available from Brooke Taylor’s Solicitors, The Quadrant, Buxton, Tideswell Post Office (Tideswell concert only), and Hand Picked by Henrietta (Chapel concert only). £10, £8.00 and Children £5.00.

cob, named ‘Caddy’, driven by a friendly elf wearing a bright red and green costume! (Unfortunately reindeers are in short supply in the Heage Area). He was greeted by a welcoming crowd of children who had brought along their parents and guardians, and were all delighted to see such a brilliant display of colour and tradition! After a brief rest for a coffee, Santa moved into his ‘grotto’ on the ground floor of the

windmill and then saw each child individually, providing them with a suitable present. In fact he saw almost 200 youngsters, including quite amazingly, five sets of twins! Meanwhile the adults were able to partake of the various side shows and refreshments which were available in the mill, and in an adjacent marquee. Overall it was probably the most successful ‘Santa day’ Heage Windmill has seen and everyone involved is to be congratulated on the part they played. Special thanks are due to John Jackson, of the British Driving Society, who provided caddie, together with his carriage and driver. Almost £1800 was taken during the day and profits will go to the windmill maintenance funds.

Christmas Charity Evening raises £200 for Age UK, Derbyshire Division

On Wednesday 11th December locals and visitors attended a Christmas charity evening at the Authentic Furniture showroom, Peak Shopping Village in aid of Age UK Derbyshire Division. Children from the nearby Rowsley C of E Primary School came down to treat visitors to a joyous medley of Christmas carols. James Lewis, TV antique expert and Bamford’s auctioneer, dropped by after a thrilling Fine Art and Antique sale at Bamford’s Bakewell Auction House. The auction saw a surprise sale of two 19th-century porcelain figures, previously thought to be German and valued at £50, reach £8000 after Bamford’s revealed they were actually rare Russian pieces from Gardner Factory in St Petersburg. James was thrilled to drop by and support the cause, explaining; “Age UK Derbyshire Division’s research into Dementia and Alzheimer's and care of the elderly is vital to families, so I was

more than happy to drop by and support the cause. I’m passionate about many charity causes. I do believe there are lots of opportunities to help make a difference, and it’s more important than ever to help in these difficult times.” Singer Michael Moore treated visitors to some popular tunes. “Singing is my passion, I haven’t looked back since my first paid gig 35 years ago and the event at Authentic Furniture in Peak Shopping Village was the perfect opportunity for me to raise money for Age UK Derbyshire Division whilst doing what I love most.” Authentic Furniture offered customers 20% off all furniture and home accessories for one evening only, and visitors were able to browse Authentic Furniture’s trademark pieces.

There was no meeting in November but instead 29 members and wives enjoyed an excellent meal at the Hope and Anchor, Wirksworth. Peter Spencer was thanked for organising the event. At the December meeting a two minute silence was observed for the deaths of two of our long serving members, Alistair Rennie and Norman Mountney. The Club Chairman, Colin Pidgeon welcomed George Baldwin as the guest speaker to this meeting. George has dealt in antiques for many years and has a business in the town. Members had brought along personal items for discussion and valuation. George had also brought along an interesting collection of items and a very informative meeting developed. A wide variety of items were discussed including ceramics, art, jewellery, collectables etc. The age of the items stretched from the 1960s to 1,500 BC. George was a fountain of knowledge and the audience learned a lot about antiques but George also learned a few things from the lively audience involvement. George donated a post-horn to the meeting which was auctioned off to the highest bidder. This was a fine presentation to round off 2013. A vote of thanks was given by Colin Pidgeon for George’s excellent rendition on antiques. The next meeting of the Wirksworth Probus Club is on the 13th of January at the Hope and Anchor when Lee Broderick will give an audio visual presentation

received from visitors and locals has been fantastic. “It was great to see our showroom alive with festive cheer and we are overwhelmed with the support we have received. We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all those who have helped to support the event, and all those who generously donated fantastic prizes for the raffle.” A committee dedicated to raising funds for Age UK Derbyshire Division sold a range of delicious homemade jams and chutneys. Shirley Shaw, Chairman of Age UK, has lived in the area for over 30 years and was delighted with the support; “We would like to

say thank you to Peak Shopping Village, Authentic Furniture and all those local businesses and individuals involved for their support. The £200 raised on the evening will go towards research into Dementia and Alzheimer’s and help us to continue our vital work in the Derbyshire area”. Santa will be returning to Peak Shopping Village the last two weekends in December, when children and grown-ups alike can visit him in his magical grotto or join him for breakfast and story time at Massarella’s - visit the news and events page at www.peakshoppingvillage.c for more information or to find out how to book your tickets in advance.

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

Furniture is filling a gap in the market for those who want a piece of furniture to look beautiful, serve a purpose and stand the test of time. They design and make all furniture to order in Derbyshire, ensuring every piece is made with care by skilled craftsmen using traditional techniques. Each piece is given a fitting name, from the comforting welcome of their ‘Tufted Glove’ chair to the practical yet delightful ‘Grand Bakers’ dining table, reflecting the unique personality of the product and then signed by the individual craftsman. As Tim Lowry explains: “Authentic Furniture is all about offering the very best customer service and a range of furniture that is, as per the very definition of “Authentic”; reliable, honest and trustworthy. “Our carpenters have great pride when creating every piece of furniture they make, they simply won’t put their name to a piece unless they are 100% proud of it, which is exactly what they do! “Each and every piece of Authentic furniture is personally signed by the maker to underline its authenticity. Our furniture isn’t ornate or over the top, there’s no pretence or whistles or bells, it’s just purposely designed and beautifully handcrafted. This is what’s so special about Authentic, the vast majority of furniture retailers who offer a range of generic imported furniture. We really want our customers to really love their pieces as much as we do. Our distinctive, unique designs and personal service are second to none and we look forward to welcoming a whole host of new customers in the New Year who are looking for that perfect piece for their home.”

Long-time Bakewell resident Peter Mold, of Haddon Road, died on 22nd November 2013, aged 89. Huddersfield-born Peter Mold came to Bakewell in 1957. After early training as a draughtsman and naval service as a petty officer, he trained as a teacher and began his teaching career in Buxton. He was asked to join the staff of Bakewell Methodist Junior School on the strength of his growing reputation as a fosterer of children’s musical talents, and quickly made his mark when the school choir and recorder group beat allcomers at the prestigious Blackpool Festival in October 1957. This was so significant an achievement for the then sleepy town of Bakewell that, to quote a local publication, “Bakewell Silver Band, led by Len “Penny” Birds, was waiting at Bakewell Station to welcome home the winners and played See the conquering hero comes as the train pulled into the station. The choir walked down into Bakewell town centre...and sang all the songs again to the crowd.” During the next 25 years successive junior school pupils, under Peter Mold’s guidance, acted as Bakewell’s musical ambassadors, travelling to music festivals all over the north-west where they amassed an enviable collection of silverware. In Bakewell itself, school concerts and annual carol services gained formidable reputations, as solo performers and all sorts of ensembles delighted Bakewellians and their families. Several of Mr Mold’s pupils indeed went on to forge starry careers in some of Britain’s top orchestras and choirs. Periodically the talents of Peter Mold’s singers and players were recognised by the media, and they made a

Peter Mold

number of radio broadcasts in the 50s and 60s, with television appearances coming in later years on such programmes as the BBC’s Songs of Praise, broadcast from Bakewell in 1981, and Wake Up Sunday with the Irish singer Dana. Additionally his pupils took part in memorable performances of Benjamin Britten’s Noyes Fludde in Bakewell Parish Church in 1969, and latterly travelled to London to play in the orchestra of Peter Maxwell Davies’s opera Cinderella. After retirement from fulltime teaching Peter Mold was on the music staff at St Elphin’s School, Darley Dale for another fifteen years. Additionally, he was Choirmaster and periodically organist at Bakewell Methodist Church from 1964 until 1989. Amongst many tributes upon his various retirements was the following, from the then Headmaster Mr J Morris of Lady Manner’s School in

1983: “Thank you for the interest in music which you have encouraged in so many Bakewell children.” He leaves three sons, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Simon Mold, December 2013

ALL NOW CHANGED AT C. FARMER LTD Over the past 12 months the former appliance shop at C. Farmer Ltd on Causeway Lane, Matlock has undergone a dramatic transformation. Gone are the ground floor rear storerooms to reveal a

large display area of washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, gas and electric cookers, refrigerators, chest freezers, built-in appliances and heating. But that’s not all, at the


rear of the store is a dedicated display of the latest LED TVs by Sony, plus recorders, DVD players and Sky HD recorders. The previous two shops are now incorporated into one large walk-around store. Why this bold move, when other stores are closing? MD Robin Farmer says the secret weapon is the FREE DELIVERY and set-up which the company offers with products like washing machines, dishwashers and smart TVs. We take the hassle out of buying and installing for the customer, together with our membership of Euronics, the UK’s biggest electrical group, means our prices are competitive and with free delivery and set-up beat the competitors on the internet and other big name outlets.

It has been a busy year already for Baslow Study Centre, which opened its doors for a second year in September. The Centre based at Cliff College in Calver, 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

Left to right: Mr Murphy (English), Mrs Allen (Classroom Assistant), Mrs Walker (English), Mr Crowson (Science), Mrs Myers (Math’s) and Mrs Thorn (Classroom Assistant) that the Centre has had on their schoolwork and results. Since the recent Ofsted approval, the Centre has

recruited a number of new staff to cope with the increased demand for places. All tutors have previous teaching

experience and are CRB checked. They are able to adapt work to fully personalise the learning for each student; this allows for

TONY BARRABLE MATLOCK TENNIS CLUB WINNER OF DERBY 1st DIVISION SINGLES LEAGUE Tony Barrable recently won the Derby Division 1 tennis singles league. Tony went into the final game one point behind the leader, therefore needing a win in order to take the title. This was played over the last two months with home and away matches. Tony won a close encounter against Belper Meadow’s player Dominic Andrews 6 - 4, 6 - 4, taking the three points for the win and taking the league title by two points over second

placed Greg Blackamore from Derby David Lloyds. Tony is the Chairman of Matlock and District Tennis Club. He says, “We are a small friendly club based at Lower Highfields school. We are always looking for new players. We play on Sunday mornings through the winter and Tuesday and Friday evenings during the summer months. If anyone would like further info they can call me, Tony on 07403 012847 or Nigel Winter on 07720 069117”.

work to be completed, not just in preparation for examinations but also to embed knowledge throughout the year. Tutors can spend time on those areas of weakness that have been highlighted by parents or the students themselves, encouraging independent learning and increased confidence in the topics covered. There are already plans afoot for workshops to take place in Math’s and Science during the summer holidays, ensuring that students are fully prepared for their new academic year. Places will be limited so reserve your places as soon as possible. For more details on the summer workshops or to request an information pack for this academic year, visit uk.

Usual waste and recycling collection days will change for Derbyshire Dales residents over the Christmas and New Year bank holidays. Homes where the usual collection day is a Thursday or Friday, will get their two collections at Christmas and New Year one day later than usual. The situation is slightly more complicated for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday rounds, where collections are earlier than usual at Christmas. •The usual Monday collection in Christmas week (Monday 23 December) is brought forward to Saturday 21 December. •The usual Tuesday collection (Tuesday 24 December) is brought forward to Monday 23 December. •The usual Wednesday collection (Christmas Day) is brought forward to Christmas Eve (Tuesday 24 December). The collections on Monday 30 December and Tuesday 31 December (New Year’s Eve) are unaffected - while the New Year week collection for the usual Wednesday round is on Thursday 2 January rather than New Year’s Day. All the collection dates and a downloadable calendar are available online via the District Council’s postcode search at waste Chairman of Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Environment Committee Councillor Steve Bull said: “Collection timetables are always slightly tricky at this time of year, but we’re getting out the message about day changes with a promotional campaign including posters on parish notice boards, regular prompts on Facebook and Twitter, plus the website, which of course features a postcode search. “We’re delighted our new collection service operated by Serco and introduced just over a year ago is now running so well and proud too that the 55.5% of all household waste our residents now recycle is probably the best figure in Derbyshire.” •Anyone without online access who needs assistance can call the District Council’s Waste Helpline on 01629 761122.

Birchover was called the Drug Road, after the horse-drawn carts known as drugs. A quarryman was recognisable by corduroy trousers tied at the knee, a flat cap, neckerchief and hob-nailed boots. If he wore a bib-and-brace he was a blacksmith or crane operator. Most families grew vegetables; children had their own ‘school plots’ between the school and churchyard. Many households kept hens, and

Down Memory Lane… Stanton in Peak


perhaps a pig that would eventually be dispatched by butcher Charlie Siddall. He did his bloody work in late autumn when the porkers were nicely fattened up. During wartime there was an occasional breach of regulations when a pig was killed at dead of night, several pairs of hands ready to muffle a squeal and spirit portions away into various houses. Stanton wakes week fell in early November. Every household made fresh Wakes Cakes and sat down to a traditional dinner of roast beef and turnips followed by plum pudding. Within living memory, at least one local lady still made traditional wakes cakes – lightly cooked, very thin and very rich, with a few currants.

Towards the end of winter, rehearsals and choir practices were put in hand for Easter services. Mr Locker from Broughtons, Bakewell would come in February to take orders for the lads’ Easter Sunday suits; it was a big day when a 13year-old was measured for his first pair of long trousers. Older girls progressed into smart ‘costumes’ of matching jackets and skirts to wear on

spend. Fun and games Daily life was moving with the times in those last few years of peace. Electricity finally arrived to oust candles and smoky paraffin lamps, but mains water had yet to be laid. A well with bucket and chain was still in use on Well Street but otherwise fresh water had to be fetched from one of four street taps, a job largely left to children – especially when it came to queuing for extra supplies to fill the copper for an early start to washday Mondays. School was as good as anywhere for escaping all t h e boiling a n d

mangling of washday bustle at home. Holy Trinity CoE School also took in children from Birchover, which had only an infants’ school. Youngsters who lived too far to go home for dinner would bring an egg to be boiled on the fire by the kindly Teacher Lizzie – Miss Elizabeth Gladwin. Gentle as she was, even she would wield her cane for serious misdemeanors. Teachers seemed to have an inexhaustible supply of canes – which somehow had a habit of disappearing. Not too many years ago, the mystery was solved when a floor was taken up for repair work to reveal a hoard of broken canes – along with the leather strap ‘lost’ by an earlier headmaster. Out of school, youngsters played their traditional games on ‘the backside’ – the village green opposite the cemetery. Scrumping was very popular in season and not too risky. Local bobby PC Armishaw, who lived in Rowsley, did his rounds on a bike so rarely caught the scrumpers red-handed. Stanton did have a resident nurse/midwife, while Dr Stoker of Winster held two weekly surgeries in Mrs Tom Wall’s house at the bottom of Middle Street. Anyone needing hospital admittance had to obtain a doctor’s ‘recommend’. Like many communities, Stanton ran a fund to pay for its residents’ hospital care, the main fundraising event being the annual carnival. In the early 1940s, Edna Wright organised a Penny

Good Friday, as well as new frocks for Easter Sunday. Sunday School pupils all joined in the Good Friday chapel parade behind a huge banner, followed by the Silver Prize Band leading singing through the village. Whole families shared in the Chapel feast. The highlight of summer was the Sunday School outing, with the delights of travelling to ‘the Whitworth’ (Institute) at Darley Dale in a horsedrawn wagonette. By the 1930s, transport was by Woolliscroft’s Silver Service bus, opening up the attractions of Blackpool and every scholar given sixpence to

in the Pound scheme, whereby anyone in work was invited to contribute a penny for every pound they earned. Many people also paid into a Friendly Society to give them the security of sick pay, unemployment pay and widows’ pensions. Subscriptions were collected in the club room of The Flying Childers. Quite a stir World War Two brought many changes to Stanton in Peak, notably the influx of child evacuees from Wythenshaw, along with their teacher Mr Radford. The Radford family moved into the village and his pupils were billeted with local families. Almost overnight, it seemed, an army camp sprung up in the ‘Catridge’ near the Lodge on the approach to Stanton. Newly built brick buildings covered a couple of fields and searchlights were set up, though rarely needed. Incendiaries did once rain on Pilhough, well wide of their presumed target of Rowsley marshalling yards. Soldiers were made welcome in many homes over Christmas, their presence rumoured to be causing quite a stir amongst the young ladies. Indeed, a few courtships ended in marriage and some soldiers returned here to settle after the war. Meanwhile, everyone slept easy under the watch of the local Home Guard. Led by Mr Caudwell of the Rowsley milling family, the platoon regularly disappeared onto the moors for late-night manoeuvres lasting into the early hours. As for the village ladies, they formed a branch of the W.I. which flourished under its president Mrs DavyThornhill. In autumn, when most villagers walked onto the moors to pick blackberries and bilberries, the W.I. ladies, in line with tradition, made many pounds of jam. Their centre of operations was the kitchen of an abandoned cottage opposite the church, thereby known as Jam Cottage until such times as it had to be pulled down. During wartime the Reading Room began to lose its exclusivity as a strictly male preserve. Today it is the perfect place to bring our story into the present, thanks to its ongoing importance for community events – at the time of writing the Reading Room is about to host Birchover Christmas Fair and will surely be decked in its seasonal finery.

BASLOW W.I. Kate Treves - President of Baslow Women’s Institute It’s in the genes, you know, there was no escaping her destiny, no escaping ancestral expectations, born to be President, born to wield power and influence. Welcome, Kate, to hard work, tightrope decisions, tough deadlines and female friendship second to none! Christmas Party with Jo’s Pantry We had a choir, I don’t mean any old choir, I mean a choir loaded with all the charisma of Christmas, singing their little hearts out. Nostalgic? We “mums” reminisced, ooohhed and aaahhed, visualising our very own tiny tots years ago- not a dry eye in the house! Top notch, St Anne’s, you were brilliant, thank you... In fact everything turned out much better than expected, Ann McPhie set up a “welcome” bar (her Birthday celebration). I helped of course; Linda Young set up the lunch bar and I helped again!! - just checking the wine levels and the temperature. Getting into the swing of things I helped Sheila from Jo’s Pantry to serve a delicious lunch... Darlings, I’ve missed my vocation, I should have been a dinner lady – now this is a real

position of power, you can serve yourself select savouries and sweets, as much and as many as you can eat and, should there be unfavourable comment, you can retaliate by sending the complainant to the back of the queue and reducing their rations! Intellectual challenges! Christine Thompson Mirth and merriment, yes, but not many correct answers, plenty of objections, appeals, halfmarks and, I suspect, some underhand “goings on” but great fun, interspersed with tea, coffee and Aileen Churchill’s “melt in the mouth” mince pies. Team Meeting at Rowleys We were seated near the kitchen, so that the chef could keep an eye on us, in case we were rowdy; but actually, we were keeping an eye on the chef, checking out his secret recipes and artistic presentation. Never slow to miss an opportunity these girls!! W.I.S.A It was Ann McPhie’s birthday (our Star Sister) and as she hasn’t had many birthdays, Barbara Massey made her a scrumptious cake. Big enough to share I’m pleased to say. 94th Birthday Lunch, Bakewell Golf Club Once a year we descend on


Youlgrave Parish Council is today celebrating the news that it has received a £25,000.00 funding boost from SITA Trust for their project “Alport Lane Playing Fields MUGA”. Funding will enable the conversion of an underused tennis court to a Multi Use Games Area. Sleeper terracing will be incorporated in the bank to encourage spectators and for school use. Councillor Andrew McCloy, who has been leading the project on behalf of Youlgrave Parish Council, said: “This is great news for our village community. It will provide more opportunities for all ages to exercise and enjoy sport, whether they choose to play competitively in

teams or more informally. We are also very keen to ensure that tennis is still played in Youlgrave, so the remaining court will be improved and facilities enhanced.” Marek Gordon, CEO and Chairman of SITA Trust added, “We are delighted to have been able to support this project through the Landfill Communities Fund. This important source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided such worthy projects with more than £1.2 billion.” SITA Trust provides funding through the Landfill Communities Fund. Funding is available for projects that enhance communities and enrich nature.

The Solution to Christmas Carol Fatigue?

Christmas is coming, with festive music greeting us at every turn – but, with the season seemingly starting earlier every year, how many of us are already secretly a bit fed up of hearing the same old carols played on repeat? One local musician thinks he has hit upon a solution. Fraser Wilson, who runs the choral group Albion, says: “Christmas carols are timeless and really make the season, but they can get a bit same-y year after year.” Fraser is popularising a new style of carol-singing. He takes carols that are already well loved and familiar, but creates new versions of them to be sung by Albion’s twelve unaccompanied voices. Fraser, a busy composer now based in the Peaks, explains: “I call the process reimagining, because I aim to preserve the essence of the carol, even though I am creating new harmonies and a new texture around it.” He usually begins by playing or singing through the carol twenty or thirty times until he knows it intimately. He then experiments with harmonies and ideas at the piano “until the solution comes into my head, and

the music is often fully formed before I begin to write it down.” Then the choir gets to work: an unusual group, they sing without a conductor and do not use sheet music, so every singer has to memorise it before they can begin to perform. Last December, the group released its first CD, ‘Salutation’, a compilation

of Fraser’s new Christmas carol arrangements. They were delighted with the positive reaction of listeners across the world. This Christmas, the singers have high hopes for the new versions of classics O Holy Night and The Coventry Carol that they are preparing to perform next week. “We hope that these new carols will continue to

travel the globe and, in a small but interesting way, that they’ll put our corner of the world on the map for contributing something new to Christmas.” Albion’s 2013 Christmas concerts take place on Friday 20 December (Holy Trinity Church, Millhouses, and Saturday 21 December, Tideswell. Tickets from


Colour, Contrasts and Culture was the theme for a talk by Trevor Ride at our November meeting. The Taddington Group of ladies and a guest were enthralled by Trevor’s ’Passage to India’ taking in all the wonderful colours of the dresses, flowers, the markets and buildings, the contrast in the living standards of the rich, the middle class and the poor, and the culture of the people. How would we react if cows were allowed to roam freely on Spring Gardens and Bakewell market? But the people just accept this as a normal way of life and woe betide anyone who may think differently. The opulence of the cathedrals

and mosques and the tourist hotels contrasted so greatly with the shelters of the poor people – they certainly could not be called houses. What was evident was that everyone appeared to be smiling and happy and did not seem to want anything better. We gasped when Trevor said that they had journeyed across India by train, having seen pictures of the crowded Indian transport. However, we were assured that in Trevor and Tony’s case the train that they travelled on was quite luxurious, with cabin attendants who lived in a cupboard-like room at the end of the train corridor but really enjoyed their work in

spite of their cramped conditions. We were surprised to hear that Hinduism is the main religion of India with Islam next and Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism being followed by only a small percentage of people. Trevor was thanked for his wonderful presentation and as an encore showed us a video of a temple which was dedicated to rodents. Unbelievable!!! As we will be going out for our Christmas meal in December and there is no meeting in January, the Taddington W.I. wish everyone a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

METROPOLIS ORIGINAL 70'S ROCK & BLUES BAND awarded, Ben Rach stepped up, sending the keeper the wrong way to a 1-0 lead. After a hard competitive second half Baba scored in the 58th minute to make it 2-0 to Bakewell Town. Five minutes was added to the scoresheet and another penalty was awarded, Ben Rach scored to make it 3-0. Bakewell secured the three points to retain the

Wilf Lincoln Memorial Trophy for the third successive year. Town’s largest crowd of the season had witnessed a full bloodied 90 minutes with no quarter given. A collection was conducted throughout the match for the Alzheimers Society, which raised £253.73. £100 was donated by a local lady. Mrs Lincoln would once

again like to thank both Youlgrave and Bakewell football teams, Ross Davies for managing an exciting match and all the supporters who came to watch and donated to this worthwhile cause. Also thanks to Keith Taylor and Ray Bacon, two of the original players who played with Wilf Lincoln in the 1950s who came and supported the teams.

“What will survive of us is love.” Tansley Film will be showing “Amour” (Certificate 12A) in Tansley Village Hall on Tuesday 7th January. “Amour” was released to much critical acclaim. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian describes it as “a masterpiece of power and pathos.” The film also deservedly won the 2012 Palm D'Or in Cannes, The London Critics' Circle Film of the Year and the 2013 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Michael Haneke directs two legends of the French cinema. Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva are Georges and Anne, both retired music teachers, living a very contented retirement. That is, until Anne suffers a stroke and declines into dementia. Anne has made her husband promise never to put her in a hospital or a home and cares for her in their apartment. It is a film that resonates with everyone as Michael Haneke confronts the universal issues of aging and death. It is a powerful

and intelligent film with some wonderfully comic moments. It reminds The Observer's Philip French of Philip Larkin's last line of his poem “An Arundel Tomb”; “What will survive of us is love...” Screening of the film starts at 7.30pm in Tansley Village Hall. Refreshments are available from 7.00pm. No membership is required. Tickets cost £4.00. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment - email or phone 01629 584243/07748 545287.


Dear Friend, I would like to update you on the latest news from Hathersage Outdoor Pool. It has been a tremendous year not only because of the good summer we enjoyed but because the staff under the guidance of Mike Wellington (Manager) and local parish council have gone out of their way to make the season of 2013 extra special. The public have been able to swim at 6.30am before work and up until 9.30 pm during the Friday night swims to music. In June the summer solstice saw members of the public swimming at 4.00am as the sun rose and when the pool closed at the end of

September the boilers were switched off and the brave amongst us took to the unheated water. The water temperature hit record lows at 10 degrees but this brought a new set of people to Hathersage; the mad and the insane you ask? No, the real wild swimmers who swim in rivers, lakes and cold seas and the triathlon groups who managed many lengths after first jogging or cycling to the pool. The season of 2014 looks set to be even bigger and better. Mike and his team at Hathersage Pool would like to invite you all to the unheated swim on New Year’s Day. We promise you a start to the New Year you will never forget. A party atmosphere and a

challenge to brush away the cobwebs and extra pounds gained over the Christmas period. Come and jump into the crystal clear pool surrounded by the hills of Stanage Edge and see if you can swim a length. Make this year a good one; don't limit your challenges but challenge your limits. The pool will be open to the public on Wednesday 1st January from 11.00am until 3.00pm. Further details can be found on the website info@hathersageswimming Jump into the New Year with a splash! Yours, Jo Wilman On behalf of the Marketing Team Hathersage Outdoor Pool

Christmas Christmas is a great bridgebuilding occasion! Communities neighbourhoods, churches, workplaces, towns – like Bakewell - and cities, draw people together to enjoy the Christmas lights, shop for presents, eat and drink too much, sing carols and have fun! On Christmas day, as members of families who may not have seen each other for months or even years, we meet to remind ourselves of the rich and special memories we share. But the first Christmas was about an even more important kind of bridgebuilding. It was the moment in history when God decided to demonstrate how much he loved us. He could have enjoyed presents and mince pies with his family and friends on his side of the bridge - ignoring a human race that often made an utter mess of his world. No chance! ‘I’m sending my Son over,’ he said, ‘to show you what peace on earth and goodwill to all people really means’. So Jesus arrived - born as a refugee lodged in a shed - in order to show just how far God would go to demonstrate his love for each and every one of us. This Christmas may we discover what Christmas really celebrates! May the many blessings of this season be yours. Building Bridges Project 2013 - where we’ve been At the beginning of 2013 the Association of Bakewell Christians launched the Bakewell Community Project - Building Bridges. Every organization and business in the town was invited to make a pledge to build some kind of bridge to help enrich the life of Bakewell as a community. Over a hundred pledges were made. When these pledges are put together it

is like ‘a thousand flowers blooming’! They show Bakewell as a place which does an immense amount to cross bridges and build community within this town and the wider world. The project has made these pledges public through displays in the Coop (on the right as you enter from the main car park), through a Community Sites Newsletter (those organisations making a pledge are called ‘Community Sites’), in the Pure Bakewell publication and through the columns of this Bakewell@Work Newsletter. At the end of the first year we offer an overview of the immense amount that Community Sites have achieved though of course not all sites have managed to fulfil their pledges. Residents: The residential homes have received flowers (Tulips) and visits from school pupils (Lady Manners). Blankets have been knitted for the Day Care Centre (Age Concern) and displays arranged for elderly residents (Edinburgh Woollen Mill). A food and veg scheme was begun (Children’s Centre). Locals have been offered computer classes (Mad4Ink; the Library) and educational opportunities (U3A). Social groups have opened their doors (Women’s Institute; Townswomen’s Guild). There have been health walks (Leisure Centre), book exchange schemes (Divine Deli) and an occasion for residents to visit their old school (Infants’ School). Locals have been encouraged to shop locally (Totally Locally; ABC). Business: Businesses have committed to good relations with customers (Riccis; The Wee Dram;

– a great time for bridge-building! Pudding Shop; Wyeclose BandB; RBS). They have promoted one another (Thorntons; Three Ducks). Workshops have been set up (Thornbridge Brewery). Some sites have pledged to attend Bakewell Traders’ Group. Festivals and displays: Markets, shows and displays have been promoted by groups and individuals (Showground Office; Peak Performance Theatre School; Stone Art; Rotary; the Mayor; Sue Smethurst) Communication: Improved information and news services have appeared (Ridgeway Gallery; Farmers Market Shop; Town Council). There are new information boards (Thornbridge Brewery; Bookshop; Stewart; Naughty and Nice Bistro; Co-op). Promotion of Bakewell as a town: Civic Society; Historical Society; Bakewell in Bloom. Charities: Scores of sites have pledged to raise funds for charities at home. Others are pledged to raise funds for those in need overseas (Village Aid; Brocklehursts, Costa Coffee; Traidcraft; Baslow Insurance Services; David George; Judith Twigg). Concern for the planet: S. Anselms; Peak Park; Society of Friends. Building Bridges Project 2014 - where we’re going The Building Bridges Project has proved so worthwhile that it will continue during 2014. Consequently all those Community Sites which have been with us this year, and anyone else interested, are being invited to choose a new pledge or continue their old one for next year. However, in 2014 the project will be making a special effort to build bridges with those who are

in particular material, physical, mental, social or spiritual need - within and beyond Bakewell. Below are a few questions we will be asking ourselves so that we can shape our pledges to end. As businesses How can we treat elderly customers, residents or visitors, with greater consideration? How can we help young people who are trying to find jobs? How can we support fellow businesses struggling to survive? How can we make ‘fair trade’ a greater priority? How can we ensure that our supply chains are not exploiting the poor and vulnerable? As other professional agencies and community services How can we treat those anxious or afraid with greater consideration and humanity? How can we give those who are anxious and lonely more time and space? How can we listen more attentively to those who find it difficult to express themselves? How can we go the extra mile to help those in particular need? As residents How can we befriend lonely or isolated members of our community? How can we help families which are suffering in this time of austerity? How can we give greater consideration to those who are less physically able? How can we better support those businesses which are finding it hard to survive? How can we help to build a fair and sustainable world? Business News and Views Bakewell Bazaar and Big Bang Fireworks The early November Bazaar,

children’s disco, fun fair and Big Bang Firework display at the Agricultural Business Centre went off with a big bang! Despite the weather conditions, the children enjoyed the fairground rides, Guy Fawkes competition and a disco which was held at the Farmers Feast with Mick Driscol as DJ. Pavement repair - Matlock Street upgrade Many people will have noticed the work to improve surfaces and signage in Matlock Street recently. The partial repaving has been funded by Derbyshire County Council and follows discussions with Bakewell Partnership over the last eighteen months. Partnership working has allowed the location of the work, as well as the style and colour of the pavers to be chosen locally, within the overall project framework set by DCC. A separate project to replace the pedestrian crossing has also taken place. Whilst limited funding makes future work uncertain it is hoped that this pattern of paving may be extended to other areas in Bakewell due course. John Rowe (Town Clerk) New parking charges Good news on the coach parking! £5 for three hours, the extended time, as we would all agree, has helped trade since it was brought in. The new night time rate £1 from 6pm to 8am - will help evening trade. However the overall increase in day-time charges will not help daytime trade. In practice the council will not receive the income they were expecting and this will put the town centre more at risk. Let’s see how it goes. The new charges are 1 hr - £1.30; 2 hrs - £2.20; 3hrs - £3.30; 4 hrs - £4.40; over 4 hrs -


Richard Young Local Christmas Shopping in Bakewell! The run up to Christmas is a crucial time for traders – so the Totally Locally Bakewell campaign is asking locals to think of Bakewell’s locally run shops, when looking for presents this year. We all need to support our local independent traders to help them to thrive. and shopping locally helps to improve the local economy. There are plenty of local independent shops full to the brim with unique Christmas gifts and services – so save yourself the driving, parking cost, crowds and time by trying Bakewell first! Wishing you a wonderful Totally Locally Christmas shopping experience. Dorota Holden Totally Locally Bakewell’s Dazzling November Draw By way of a thank-you from independent traders in Bakewell, this November, for two weeks, locals spending £10 or more were eligible to enter the ‘Dazzling November Draw’ in 44 participating independent traders. The total prize fund was a huge £440 of local shopping vouchers - 1st Prize £200, 2nd Prize £140, 3rd Prize £100 of Totally Locally vouchers). Three lucky winners’ names were drawn at the end of November. Remembrance Day Parade – 2013 This annual event was organised by Bakewell British Legion and included a service at the Parish Church on Sunday November 9th. Late night opening on Matlock Street •Having done a late night opening myself last year which was very successful, a

number of traders approached me to organize one for the whole of Matlock Street and Hebdon Court. Sixteen shops were involved. The atmosphere on the evening (Thursday, November 7th, from 5pm to 8.30pm) was very festive with people already in the Christmas Spirit. The late night opening, with a number of new customers in the shops, was a great success. I have every intention of arranging this again in the future. Helen Naylor – Hearts and Roses •We used the late night shopping event as an opportunity to give special offers to our online/ Facebook customers as well as those who came out on the night. This gave us some good sales. Tracey Baker – Bakewell Gift and Bear Shop •After a slow start I had a large group of customers who spent over £100 and thanked me for staying open. It was also nice to meet some of the Dads. I’m pleased I was involved in the late night opening. It was well worthwhile. Scott Dickinson - Bakewell Toy Shop A new Bakewell Chamber of Trade? Bakewell Traders are being urged to re-establish the Bakewell Chamber of Trade. Sue Smethurst and Janet Bailey, who are resigning as Event Co-Ordinators in the New Year, are concerned that the interface between the various groups in the town (such as the Bakewell Partnership) and traders will disappear if there is not an official body representing

t h e businesses in Bakewell. The previous Chamber of Trade was put on hold a few years ago. However, it still has a bank account with a minimal balance of funds so could be operational almost immediately. It is also important that an official recognised body be formed so that grants and funding can be applied for. If anyone is interested, or is willing to organize and chair the Bakewell Chamber of Trade, please contact Richard Young at the Farmers Market Shop.

CARSINGTON AND HOPTON PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS GET TO THE CHURCH ON TIME! Pupils from Carsington and Hopton C of E Primary School took part in a day dedicated to the ceremony and the meaning of marriage in the Christian faith. Led by Reverend Kara Werner from Wirksworth Team Ministry the children took part in various wedding themed workshops, starting with the planning of the ceremony through to making invitations, and even preparing buttonholes and the big day’s refreshments! The highlight of the day was when two of the junior children were ‘married’ at a ceremony in St. Margaret’s Church, Carsington after which all the wedding guests returned to school for the reception, complete with cake and an excellent best man’s speech!

At the meeting held on Tuesday 10th December 2013, Mr. Keith Talbot gave an illustrated talk entitled “Around Adelaide, New South Wales and Queensland”. This covered a month’s stay in the Christmas and New Year period and based mainly in Adelaide. The seasonal celebrations shown in the slides were very similar to the ones with which we are familiar, including such things as Street Parades, visits from Father Christmas, Carols by Candlelight, Family Parties and Firework Displays. Because of the time of year and climatic differences the general impression was of the Australians moving outwards into the warmth, light, sunshine and open spaces to celebrate while we, in the face of winter weather, are more inclined to stay indoors seeking warmth and cosiness. In addition to the emphasis on these activities Mr. Talbot also showed a number of sights and sites more familiar to visitors such as the municipal buildings of Adelaide, the University, museums and the colourful displays in the Botanical Garden and the ordinary domestic gardens. Going further afield the slides showed the variety of landscapes

and seascapes to be found in this vast country. This was further illustrated by a sketch map showing the main towns in Australia and the distances between them. Details of the programme and activities of the Club can be found on its website at:wwwmatlockforumclub.

There have been some incredible sunsets in recent weeks with the sky appearing like a turmoil of crimson cloud against a backdrop of fast approaching darkness. My aim for this walk was to capture a dramatic sunset and so I needed to head high and locate somewhere with clear views to the west. I also needed the forecast of a frosty night for the perfect combination. A relatively short walk without stiles or steep inclines was another requirement as I had promised Alfie, my now senior canine companion that he could come along too as a treat. With all that in mind I headed to Chelmorton quite late in the afternoon and parked on the roadside of this linear village with its roots set deep in medieval times. Situated some 1200 feet above sea level it is said to be the second highest village in the Peak District and one of the highest villages in the country. Chelmorton is surrounded by ancient field systems which predate the Enclosure Act. The main street was established as a string of small farmsteads each with a croft behind, beyond which would have been open land and pasture. Although some of the crofts have been built on and there has been an infill of more recent construction, it is still possible to see the medieval village formation, especially from a distance or an aerial view. Walking up the village I admired the mixture of old and modern housing, many decorated in festive mood with twinkly lights and the occasional Santa or snowman. Chelmorton has a unique and unusual phone box. Unlike the traditional red phone boxes that are fast disappearing, this village has a stone phone box with green paintwork which would need to be demolished should it have to be removed, although I don’t doubt it would cause

uproar if suggested. Towards the top of the village I came across the Chelmorton Troughs, being the last remaining pair of seven which formed part of the village water supply until mains water from Ladybower was installed. The troughs were fed by a spring flowing off Chelmorton Low named Illy-Willy-Water. The Church Inn has been refreshing locals and travellers since 1742. It was originally named The Blacksmith’s Arms as the old smithy was nearby. Chelmorton Church is dedicated to St John the Baptist and is reputedly the highest church in Derbyshire and dates from 1111 with a slender 15th century octagonal spire.

toward Axe Edge were beginning to fade into a grey silhouette and I could just make out a faint orange glow beginning to appear. I was also aware that with the sun dropping down, so was the temperature, and I snuggled my chin ever deeper into my scarf. These high summits of the White Peak are peppered with ancient tumuli and burial sites, because early man must have chosen to bury their dead as close to ‘the heavens’ as they could. One of the most important sites close to where I was walking is Five Wells. This Neolithic chambered cairn is reputed to be the highest megalithic tomb in Britain. It was excavated in 1846 by Thomas Bateman from

fabulous rough track in a near perfect straight line with incredible views in all directions. A constant procession of headlights were twinkling on the A515 as vehicles passed along another road with long straight stretches, this one being part of a former Roman road, more than 1500 years old. On the tight bend a little way to the south are a cluster of houses and the Duke of York Pub situated in the tiny hamlet of Pomeroy. Although the settlement was probably established with the construction of the turnpike road and coaching inn, it is likely that the name is Norman in origin and means ‘orchard of apple trees’. The orange streak had expanded by now but sadly I was not to be rewarded with the dramatic red sky that I had wished for. Nevertheless it was still spectacular. I could see a bank of mist blanketing the Macclesfield Old Road whilst over towards Dowlow some of the towering quarry buildings and machinery looked almost attractive as irregular dark shapes on the skyline. Just before Blinder House I turned right down Pippenwell Road to Chelmorton, which was gradually becoming illuminated as homes turned on their lights for the evening. I might not have

01629 814933 Although much of the early building has disappeared due to restoration and rebuilding in the 19th century, the porch is made up of sepulchral slabs or coffin lids dating from as early as the 12th century. Atop the spire is a weathervane in the shape of a locust, a reminder of the Baptist’s time in the wilderness. The old miner’s path up behind the church to Grove Rake is an absolute joy to walk as you ascend very gradually to the heavens and can look back down onto the village. The panoramic views

After walking on an upsydownsy path through the former mine workings, we arrived at Pillwell Lane where we turned right and walked down to the crossroads at Chelmorton Thorn. In the Middle Ages it was traditional to plant a sturdy thorn bush at a crossing of ways or change of direction as a way-marker which is how this junction got its name. Our route from here was along Highstool Lane, a

Mr Morgans said: “Helen’s Trust is a fantastic charity, it’s really admirable the work that they do helping terminally ill people remain in the comfort and safety of their own homes. “The charity is actually based in Bakewell and it’s the only office they have so I’ve got a bit of affection for them really.” “The walk was great fun. It really brought the community together.” Eleven Brownies from second Bakewell Methodist Brownies also took part in the walk. Cassandra Hodgkinson, group leader, said: “The Brownies really enjoyed it,
