The Samuel Turner Memorial Drinking Fountain, Buxton. Erected in memory of Samuel Turner in 1879, the fountain was damaged in 1959 and put into storage. Fully restored, the memorial now stands proudly in the heart of the town.
PAST AGES OF THE PEAK Part 11 – Under Stuart Rule On a late spring day of 1603, Youlgrave church bells were repaired at the cost of a shilling and given a new fivepenny rope in order to proclaim the coronation of James 1, England’s first Stuart monarch. Less than three years later those same bells rang out in thanksgiving for his deliverance from the gunpowder plot, an event which was to herald a reign of intolerance and superstition. The ‘witch-ridden’ king himself wrote ‘Demonology’, a work that fuelled an era of hysterical witch-hunting; in 1608 two Bakewell women were burnt as witches on the farfetched evidence of an aggrieved lodger. The kingdom inherited by
Charles 1 in 1625 was rent by bitter religious and constitutional differences. Charles ruled without parliament from 1629 – 1640, raising finance by ingenious means. Derbyshire managed to submit just £60 of the £3,500 ship money demanded – a tax previously imposed only on coastal towns and only in wartime. Tideswell had been charged with maintaining and manning a 350-ton ship, down to munitions, victuals and wages. Moreover, the townsfolk were driven to protest against the numbers summoned for military service. In the main the Peak fell under Parliamentary control. Even the Royalist stronghold of Chatsworth – seat of the Devonshires – was taken for
a time by Sir John Gell of Hopton. In 1643 the Earl of Devonshire’s son, the Hon. Charles Cavendish, a Royalist colonel, was killed on the field of Gainsborough. His body was pickled in a barrel – a not uncommon practice for the gentry – to await reinterment in the family vault at Derby Church (now the Cathedral) at the time of the burial of his mother, the Countess Christian. She, in the intervening years, had founded the church of Peak Forest in memory of her son. One of the windows depicts the figure of Charles 1 beside an axe and beheading block, the church having been dedicated to King Charles King and Martyr following the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. During hostilities Hassop Hall had been garrisoned for the King by the staunchly Royalist Eyres, who witnessed fighting almost at its gates. Cavaliers and Roundheads also came face to face on Hartington moor, leaving behind lead bullets and the story of a Royalist leader, William de Rossington of Rowsley. Killed in the skirmish but wanted dead or alive, his body was buried by his sweetheart after nightfall in woodland near Cressbrook; two centuries later his remains
were discovered alongside armour and a sword. Christopher Fulwood of Middleton also fought for the King, mustering 1,000 Peakland men but in 1643 he was cornered behind a rock in Bradford Dale and mortally wounded by Gell’s Roundheads. The Civil War came to an end five years later with Cromwell’s success at Preston, following which 1,500 Scottish Royalist prisoners were marched to Chapel en le Frith and incarcerated in the church for 16 days; 44 died of neglect and many more perished after their release.

REBRANDING BEELZEBUB (**** Fringe Guru) shines a spotlight on Him Downstairs in a performance shaped by razor wit, diabolical horror, absurd confessions and humour fit for the
unholy host. Tim presents innovative re-imaginings of traditional tales as he exhumes the bones of old Devil stories and stitches them a new skin. This grand collection spans supermarket stalls, urban sprawls, mad drunken preachers and widows’ sons. Tickets cost £7 and can be bought by calling Storytelling Cafe on 01629 580023.

Elton and former Darley Dale wicketkeeper Jack Stone says it is a case of ‘so far – so good’ at the end of his first season as a Derbyshire Premier League cricketer. When he was approached by
Premier League Denby earlier this year, Stone made the difficult decision to leave Darley Dale to try his luck at the higher level. He had been at Darley for fourteen seasons since the age of
eleven and had greatly enjoyed his time there but if he was going to make the step up – it was now or never. Following an excellent start, Denby flirted with the top of the Premier

League in the first half of the season but their form tailed off in August and they finished mid-table. Stone achieved more stumpings than any other keeper in the Premier League and was ever present for his new club. Denby also reached the semi-finals of both the Premier Cup and the T20 knock-out competitions. In common with most other Premier League clubs, Denby have their fair share of players with first-class cricket experience. Greg Cork (son of Dominic) is a regular member of the Derbyshire one-day side. He opens the bowling for Denby with 19 years old Will Davies who made a highly promising Derbyshire debut against the Australians in July. Denby’s off-spinning all rounder, Peter Burgoyne, played two Championship games for Sussex this season, after several successful appearances for their second eleven. Away from Denby, Stone was flattered to be asked to keep wicket for a Premier League Select eleven who faced a full strength Derbyshire team in a warm up T20 game at Queens Park, Chesterfield in early July. Other than Stone, the League side comprised mainly the overseas professionals playing for the various Premier league clubs. These included former Australian Test bowler Michael Beer who featured in the 2011 Ashes down under and is currently with Swarkstone. Also appearing for the League side was Stone’s Denby team mate, Jury Snyman, a hard hitting batsman from Johannesburg. On the hottest evening of the year, Derbyshire batted first and ran up a total of 169 with Chesney Hughes and Wes Durston the main contributors. Stone was extremely disappointed when a confident appeal for a catch against Durston was turned down by the umpire but pouched a neat catch to send back Shiv Thakor in the next over. Opening for the League side, Jury Snyman set off with an array of glorious attacking shots. He showed the County bowlers very little respect as he rattled up 55 in no time. At the half way point it seemed that a big upset was on the cards but once Snyman had departed Derbyshire took control and eventually ran out victors by 30 runs. Still – all quite an experience for the Elton man who continues to turn out for his home village in midweek Longstone League games and Sunday friendlies.

CELEBRATIONS FOR TWO CHURCH WARDENS
Two faithful church wardens were feted at a ceremony on Sunday 27th September, thanking them for providing decades of service to their local church. Roland Corfield (on the left) 75, of Bakewell Road,
NOW ON SALE
Darley Dale and Roy Witham, 82 of Elton Road, Winster, have together served St John The Baptist Church in Winster for 100 years, Roland for 42 and a half years and Roy for 57 and a half years. A celebration of their achievement took place at St John’s, on Sunday the 27th. Roland said, “Well 100 not out is no mean feat and we have both seen lots of changes over the years but I was brought up at church and I have always loved it, so I’ll do it until they kick me off, or I pop my clogs”. Roland became warden in 1973 at the age of 33 but Roy has been serving the parish since way back in 1958. Together, they look after the church itself and the fabric of the building but also manage the details of the
services including funerals and even some bell ringing as well. Roy said, “I have lived in Winster all my life and was always a churchgoer, right from when I was a child. They approached me when I was 25 because, I was a self employed builder and initially I said ‘no’ but they convinced me it was right for me. “It has been very time consuming but I have enjoyed it and Roland was born only a few doors away from me and we played together as children, so we have had a very good relationship”. Rector of St John’s, Reverend Stephen Monk, was full of praise for his two right hand men: “The church has changed so much in their time here and Roy and Roland have been faithful through all of that”.

Sue Lewis-Blake talked to Bakewell WI about “Looking at Abstract Art” at the meeting on 21st July. She explained that patterns have been used in art since ancient times but it wasn’t until the end of the 19th century that artists looked for new ways of representing reality. She illustrated and discussed various periods and styles up to the present day. As well as producing her own work Sue runs monthly art appreciation workshops at Stanton-in-thePeak. Further information about her art and experience is available on her website at h t t p : / / w w w. l e w i s blake.co.uk/. At our September meeting local photographer Robert Falconer gave a slide show on The Magic of Mull. In 2005 Robert spent 4 months living and working on the Isle. At the same time he was also able to photograph the island at its best from tranquil lochs to golden beaches. Mull’s neighbours also feature, such as Ulva, Staffa, Treshnish Isle and Iona. Robert had many cards available and copies of his books “The Peak District A Winters Tale” and ‘Preserved Steam in Derbyshire’ For more information about his work and talks see http://www.robfalconerphot ography.com/ Our meetings are normally held at the Friends’ Meeting House, Chapel Row, Bakewell at 7.30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

A referees’ course held over the summer has gained the league some new faces and we would very much like to wish them all well, they will need support and encouragement which we are sure they will get from our clubs.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Sir Diabetes UK is urging people who have got a place in the London Marathon ballot to help the charity raise much-needed funds. Most places in the London Marathon are offered by ballot, with successful applicants then deciding which of their favourite charities they will run for. We are urging those successful runners who got a place to select Diabetes UK. This will help us to care for, connect and campaign, alongside even more people living with diabetes as we continue our work to prevent and, one day, cure the condition currently affecting 3.9 million people. All runners who join the Diabetes UK team will receive a branded vest complete with personalised lettering, crazy hair, a fundraising toolkit, online
support, training tips, and will be invited to our postevent cooldown party, complete with massage therapists. If you applied and didn’t get a ballot place, we have places in the Brighton Marathon, Edinburgh Marathon and even the Berlin Marathon. Or if you want to tackle something shorter, there are 5ks, 10ks and half marathons all over the UK you can enter to support us – or get a place yourself and then fundraise for us.

THE LAST OF THE ENGLISH SNOW HARES
A major citizen science project will be launched in the Peak District and South Pennines this autumn to gather more information about the enigmatic snow hare, and how this species is being affected by a warming climate. This area is the only place in England where this animal â€“ whose fur turns white in the winter for camouflage â€“ is still found in any number.

hares are likely to be the first to feel the effects of our warming climate. Community Science started in 2013 initially focussing on moorland birds, butterflies and bees, but is now being expanded to include studies into mammals and the vital peatforming Sphagnum moss. The man behind this yearâ€™s hunt to find Britainâ€™s national bird, David Lindo, has given his backing to the campaign and said: â€œAs far as I am concerned, the only way to really get conservation messages out there is to encourage volunteers to participate in citizen science. Exactly what you guys will be doing. It is people like you that help to create the cornerstones of our increasing knowledge of the natural world.â€?

WI REBELLION KNOLL
This month our very own Jane Bownes will give a talk on Bradwell Ice Cream, the village business that has now become nationally (internationally, even, maybe?) well known. This should prove very interesting – particularly to our ever increasing new membership and to those who have recently moved into the village….and free tastings too! Last month Paul Bettison, Chaplain of Ashgate Hospice,
gave a moving talk on the Hospice which gives palliative care to those nearing the end of life’s pathway due to cancer. He stressed how important it is to listen to all, be it those who wish to talk to God everyday or those less religious, who maybe just want to talk about family, friends (and pets) and the life and loves they may have had. He also stressed how important the garden was and how it had been
designed (and continues to evolve) with wheelchair access in mind, providing a sensory experience for all. Our summer outing to Warwick Castle proved a great success, with many thanks to Phil for sorting the wayward tickets – “It was all right on the night…..(day!)” and, by the time you read this, we will have enjoyed our outing to Kew Gardens and Buckingham Palace, joined by some of our friends from outside Rebellion Knoll.
The flowers in the tubs on the main road are nearing the end of their display; we hope they have brought some pleasure. The garden at the entrance to Town Bottom Playing Fields is now maturing beautifully thanks to the weekly administrations of our members. We hope you all enjoyed our stall on Gala Day. Thank you for supporting us despite the downpour at the end of the day!

COULD CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY HELP TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH?

CARPETS - BLINDS - CLEANING
Have you ever considered using clinical hypnotherapy to address a problem you have? Clinical hypnotherapy is a technique that is now becoming widely recognised by many health professionals. Clinical Hypnotherapy stimulates the innate healing capacity our bodies possess and, as such, the list of problems which may be responsive to Clinical Hypnotherapy is long and varied. Clinical hypnotherapy has been successful in helping people to stop smoking, managing pain, stress, anxiety, habits and phobias and also helping people to reduce weight. Medical research has found Clinical Hypnotherapy to be a beneficial tool to manage the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) stated in their 2008 Guidelines that “Hypnotherapy and/or Psychological Therapy should be considered for people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, who do not respond to pharmacological treatments after 12 months and who develop a continuing symptom profile. Dr Peter Whorwell, a gastroenterologist working in Manchester, became interested in the potential of hypnotherapy for IBS patients over 20 years ago. He kept his new interest under wraps from sceptical colleagues until research proved it was effective. The therapy has proved highly effective, with a recent study showing it had helped 71% of patients for up to five years after their course of treatment. Dr Whorwell told the BBC "People are suspicious because they have seen stage hypnotists, but you cannot be hypnotised against your will and you
won’t act out of character while you’re hypnotised. “Dr Whorwell is trying to spread the word to other doctors around the country. But he says many are still reluctant to use the technique. Some people are concerned that they will ‘lose control’ in hypnosis. However, regardless of how deeply people may go in to hypnosis and however passive they may appear to be, they actually remain in full control of the situation. They are able to talk if they wish to (or not, as the case may be) and can terminate the session, stand up, or leave the room at any time. A hypnotised person cannot be made to do anything that contravenes their usual ethical, moral or religious beliefs. It is likely that the fear of loss of control originates from most people’s misconception of stage hypnosis, where participants are apparently persuaded to perform all types of (usually foolish) acts. However, it is worth remembering that participation in a stage act is an entirely voluntary process (therefore ‘permission’ is already given to the hypnotist) and that any person who volunteers in such a situation is fully aware of exactly what they are letting themselves in for. During hypnotherapy you will be gently guided into a deeply relaxed state where you will be encouraged to address negative thoughts, which have led to unwanted behaviours, addictions or phobias. This works by placing positive suggestions into your subconscious mind and provides you with tools to help overcome unwanted thoughts and behaviours. The aim is then to replace these with positive thought processes and healthy
behaviour. If you are interested in receiving help from a Clinical Hypnotherapist, ensure that they are qualified and are registered with regulating bodies such as The General Hypnotherapy Register and The Complementary and Healthcare Council (CNHC). The CHNC is the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners and was set up with government support to protect the public
by providing a UK register of complementary therapists. Only qualified and approved Clinical Hypnotherapists can register with these bodies and they ensure all registrants meet essential criteria for safe and professional practice. Nicola Rose DipCH BSc (Hons) RNutr is a fully Registered Nutritionist and Clinical Hypnotherapist. She works for a specialist NHS weight management service and also runs a private weight management/hypnotherapy pratice.

GREAT LONGSTONE PRE-SCHOOL
NEARLY NEW SALE
On 7th November from 10.30am until 12noon Great Longstone Pre-School is holding its most popular fundraising event of the year, the annual Nearly New Sale. This year we are hoping to attract even more people to the sale by offering free entry and there will be a raffle and cake stall in addition to the fantastic array of baby and children’s items on offer. In previous years, money raised at the sale has been put to good use in updating the building, facilities and play equipment and this year, like last, the money will be used to improve the garden area. Local mum, Jo, said; “The sale is great; I go every year! Last year I bought a buggy to put in the car/take on holiday as well as a travel cot to keep at the grandparents’ house and all of the ‘stocking-filler’ toys for the kids for Christmas and I don’t think I spent more than about £15” The Pre-School has been a registered charity for over 30 years and relies on fundraising and support from parents, staff and volunteers in order to continue to run successfully. It is at the heart of the local
community and, over the years, has helped hundreds of children make the best start possible in their school careers, as well as having lots of fun in the process! The Nearly New Sale provides a marketplace for people to sell their good quality children’s and babies’ toys, games, books, equipment and clothes. Sellers make money whilst recycling their pre-loved items and the pre-school benefits by taking a percentage of the total sales made. After the sale, many sellers ask us to donate any unsold items on their behalf. The toys and equipment go to a group in Sheffield called ‘Families Together’ which provides support and counselling to disadvantaged families and this year many of the clothes will go to Matlock group ‘Hope for Refugees’ and the books to Holme Hall School and Children’s Centre in Chesterfield to help them in setting up their pre-school library. If you are interested in selling, please contact Georgie on 07510 312 637 or by email on email@greatlongstonepresc hool.org.uk

WIRKSWORTH SWIMMING POOL
“GROWS” IN DONATIONS
Derbyshire Dales Councillor Peter Slack decided to support Wirksworth Swimming Pool through the sale of some of his garden produce. Following last December’s sales of Christmas trees, Councillor Slack spent the Spring and Summer months selling flowers and plants at Wirksworth Market, and has lately sold bulbs, raising a total amount of £1,300 which he has very kindly donated to Wirksworth Swimming Pool. Councillor Slack met with Dave Baker, chair of the Wirksworth Swimming Pool trustees, to hand over a cheque for the money raised. Dave Baker comments: “It is very important for a selffinancing charity such as Wirksworth Swimming Pool to have donations that can support the development and upkeep of the pool. Since taking over the management of the pool in 2012, every piece of the plant room has required replacement. Councillor Slack’s donation will cover the costs of replacing the swimming pool pumps,
Dave Baker receives a cheque for £1,300 from Councillor Peter Slack which required changing this summer”. The trustees and staff are hoping that the Bingo Night taking place at the red Lion pub on 23rd October will equally help to raise much-needed funds to continue maintaining and developing the pool. Tickets for the Bingo Night are available from the Pool office.

What a fabulous day in Rutland! Four members of the Darley Dale committee travelled to Rutland Water Golf Course, Oakham for the East Midlands In Bloom awards ceremony. It was always going to be a challenge to match the achievements of last year but to consolidate our position with another Silver Gilt award was no mean feat! The points allocated this year maintained our position, putting us just 8 points away from our aspirational target of a Gold Award in the Small Town category. Furthermore, Jo Stanistreet and her team at the Flower In The Field project were presented with the Judges Award for the cleverly laid out gardens in petal sections, with each section growing something different. The judges stated that this is an “amazing
allotment facility which encourages people with mental health issues to dabble with soil and plants as a fun activity”. They were extremely complimentary about the tour of Darley Dale on 17th July, declaring it “an interesting tour which included sites of historical interest, residential gardens, quality open spaces, new planting schemes and colourful floral displays”. The judges enjoyed “the short but informative open horsedrawn carriage drive around Whitworth Park by Caroline Dale-Leech who pointed out areas of interest, improvement and possible future projects”. The Judges’ Report particularly stated that visiting Darley Dale Primary School “gave the judges the opportunity to meet a group of very enthusiastic children,
keen to show off their wildlife garden”. Specific mention was given in the report to the new Willow Way Knot Garden project where “the local community can really see and enjoy the improvements”. With the judges identification of areas for further development, our own increasing number of projects planned for the 2016 competition, in addition to continued consolidation of
the 2015 achievements there is a great deal of work to be done. The Darley Dale In Bloom committee would really welcome additional volunteers to come forward through their website: www.darleydaleinbloom.co.uk so that their particular interests may be addressed and the overall available effort-levels increased to further support this developing cause.

PASTPart AGES OF THE PEAK 11 – Under Stuart Rule
Continued from Page 1 On 30 January 1649, the man they had died for, Charles 1, was beheaded, escorted to the block by Ashbourne-born Gilbert Sheldon, a future Archbishop of Canterbury. And in peacetime … War aside, the Peak enjoyed conflicting fortunes under the early Stuarts, from intermittent outbreaks of plague to successful leadmining ventures supported by the introduction of soughs. A travelling writer noted that leadminers ate exceptionally well, with overindulgence in gambling and drinking seen only at Christmas. Under Cromwell’s Puritan control, however, all traditional merrymaking would be banned. Churches were cleared of any possessions unsuited to austere worship, fonts being discarded and Catholic memorials removed or defaced. In 1650, Cromwell’s commissioners undertook the Parliamentary Survey of livings, any clergyman with Royalist leanings being listed as ‘reputed scandalous’. One of their number was Thomas Bocking of Hope who had actually taken up arms for Charles 1. Bonsall’s rector, on the other hand, led his parishioners in complying with an unpopular Puritan decree demanding monthly one-day fasts from ‘bodily delights, rich apparel and such like.’ To drink the king’s health was seditious; in 1651 Samuel Carrington of Youlgrave accused two fellow tipplers of such dangerous loyalty. It was Youlgrave church that in 1904 was presented with a ragged banner embroidered ‘To the Sacred Memory of his most excellent Majesty, Charles the First, King and Martyr’. The donor was Captain H.S.Wheatly-
Scottish followers were preceded by rumours of their wild, uncivilized behaviour; Peak farmers hid their livestock in the hills, families at Hope Woodlands buried their valuables, and a treasured grandfather clock was hidden in a lead mine at Eyam. Occasional hungry and footsore stragglers lost their way in the hills – a highlander’s dirk and claymore were found many years later at Hathersage. The Bowman family of Youlgrave acquired a treasured heirloom in the form of a pair of long, silk plaid cross-garters. Each bore a woven motto: ‘God Bless the Prince, who had long since, a Right unto the Crown’ and the other: ‘Then Let us Fight, in armour bright, to pull Usurper down’. But the ‘Usurper’ held onto his crown and the cause of the Stuarts was crushed forever at Culloden on 16 April 1746. Julie Bunting
Fulwoods Rock annual Castleton Garland ceremony. With traditional merrymaking back in full swing, Bonsall honoured Charles 11 – the ‘Merry Monarch’ – with the building of the picturesque King’s Head Inn in 1677. Tragically, one more deathly silent Christmas had meanwhile been endured at Eyam, devastated by bubonic plague and in voluntary isolation. Elsewhere around the Peak domestic trade began to prosper: ropes from Castleton, shoes from Stoney Middleton, stockings from Litton and leather goods and tinplate ware from Tideswell. A strange penalty was introduced to boost the wool trade, albeit defied at Sheen when three bodies were buried in linen instead of the decreed wool, each burial incurring a £5 fine. King Charles was succeeded by his brother, James 11, whose unpopularity would lead to his overthow in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. William
Rebellion led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart, exiled grandson of James 11, who in 1745 set out to wrest the crown from the House of
Hanover. ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’ marched his army through Ashbourne on 3rd December but three days later was in retreat. His bedraggled

Cavendish, 4th Earl of Devonshire, was involved in the plot that brought James’s daughter Mary and her husband, William of Orange, to the throne. Cavendish was created 1st Duke of Devonshire and Marquis of Hartington in gratitude. Five years later, the last remnants of medieval justice saw a Derbyshire farm girl executing by burning under a charge of petty treason for murdering her master. Market day floggings were still a common spectacle, with both men and women being whipped at Bakewell and Wirksworth. Victories, prosperity and rebellion At the death of King William in 1702, Mary’s sister Anne came to the throne. Even with the introduction of turnpike roads in 1706, travelling in the Peak at this time was ‘tedious and the miles long’ but industrial progress was gathering momentum. In 1714, Yatestoop Mine at Winster became the first Derbyshire lead mine to install a steam pumping engine. Mining brought considerable prosperity to this part of England – lead tithes at Wirksworth and Eyam peaked at around £1200 and £1800 respectively. Roads through the southern Peak lay on the route of the ill-fated Jacobite

BAKEWELL NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN Bakewell Neighbourhood Plan
You have probably heard about Neighbourhood Planning but just what is a Neighbourhood Plan and how does it affect Bakewell? A Neighbourhood Plan is a communityâ€™s opportunity to shape and guide development that will take place locally and helps ensure that it is appropriate to its needs and aspirations. It gives people a real say in where that development happens and how it looks and would be used by Peak District National Park to make decisions about developments. Following the Localism Act 2011 Bakewell, like many communities, decided to produce a Neighbourhood Plan and received designated status in November 2013. In July 2014 the Bakewell Partnership agreed to form a
Working Group to produce the Plan. Representing the views of residents, businesses and visitors, the group is open to anybody, of any age, who
would like to help our community identify issues and plan for the future of Bakewell. The areas we are looking at are:
â€˘Economy â€˘Housing â€˘Transport and Communication â€˘Education, Leisure, Sport and Arts â€˘Environment Two Public Events are being planned to showcase the work done so far and to seek the views of the community, so why not come along and give your view? The dates for your diary are 2pm-4pm Wednesday 4th November 2015 and 6pm8pm Thursday 19th November 2015 both in the Court Room, Town Hall, Bakewell. To see further details go to www.bakewellplan.co.uk or contact John Rowe, Town Clerk, Town Hall, Bakewell 01629 813 525 townclerk@bakewelltown council.gov.uk
PUBLIC EVENTS Drop in to see the displays and comment on the proposals. The Neighbourhood Plan Group will be available to talk about the Plan and how you can help shape the future development of Bakewell.
CROMFORD WI ~ OCTOBER 2015 MEETING President Christine Levasseur opened the October meeting by welcoming the speaker for the evening, Margaret Armour. Margaret makes figures from hessian and brought along examples of her work. The pieces included girls and boys playing and reading, mothers and babies, animals and a nativity scene. Her first figure was a woman blackberrying, made for a competition in Chesterfield thirty years ago. There was a lot of interest and Margaret began holding craft evenings and for a time sold her work on market stalls in Chesterfield and Buxton. Now she gives talks to interested
groups. Up to twelve inches in height, the figures traditionally have no facial features and show one foot peeping from their skirts. It is an ancient craft originating in Korea. Margaret was thanked for her talk by Ann Pocklington and members were able to buy these charming figures as ideal Christmas presents or treats for themselves. During September there was a knit and natter afternoon and a fish and chip supper hosted by Ambergate WI. Some members went to see â€˜Brassed Offâ€™ at Derby Theatre.
Curtains, Pelmets, Valances, Blinds, Cushions, Loose Covers for all types of furniture. All made to measure, plus fitting service, alterations and re-linings. Also, upholstery. Please ring 01433 621864 or mobile 07769 974756
