February can be one of the coldest months of the year, but there’s plenty to be getting on with in the garden. Now is a good time to wrap up warm and get your growing space prepared and ready for spring – it won’t be long before the seed-sowing, planting and weeding season is upon us. Digging the vegetable patch is my priority this month. Weeds have set in since the last of 2013’s crops were harvested, and these need to be dug out before I can put in the first early potatoes, onions or broad beans. Once the weeds are removed, a barrow-load or two of well-rotted manure or homemade compost will be added to some areas of the plot. Potatoes and beans love the nutrients that this sort of organic matter offers, whereas onions are best grown in non-enriched
soil or they might rot. When the soil is prepared, I’ll put up a couple of plastic tunnel cloches to warm up it up – then I can plant first early potatoes, such as Arran Pilot or Rocket, at the beginning of March for a slightly earlier crop. I usually pop a few seed potatoes in large pots in the greenhouse, too – these will grow quickly and strongly in the frostfree environment and could be ready to harvest as early as May. Hibernating Whilst the veggie patch is progressing nicely, the rest of the garden is a bit of a mess – there are dead stems and flower heads everywhere. I could smarten things up by doing a bit of hacking and pruning but I’m going to leave it as it is for now. Beneficial insects such as ladybirds hibernate in the hollow stems of perennials,
and birds will feed on the seed heads of thistles, sunflowers and teasels. It’s best to wait until the new growth starts to show in a couple of months before cutting back these plants. Butterflies and lacewings may be over-wintering in the shed or greenhouse, so I’m leaving the big clear-out for a while, too. Piles of leaves and twigs building up in the corner of the garden might be home to a hibernating hedgehog – in fact, dying plants and leaves are a valuable source of food, warmth and shelter for all sorts of wildlife. I’ll need to be careful, too, when collecting that compost for the potato bed – there may be a toad or a slow worm sleeping the winter months away in the warmth of the compost heap. Winter wildlife It’s around this time of year that the first insects will be emerging from hibernation. Bumblebees are often the first to appear, buzzing about looking for food. Snowdrops, crocuses and other early flowering, nectar-rich bulbs make a splendid breakfast for a hungry bee. If you didn’t get around to planting spring bulbs in autumn, it’s possible to buy crocus, daffodil and grape hyacinths in pots from the garden centre or nursery, and plant them out now. Just a few colourful blooms in pots on the patio will
provide a vital food source for insects. Ivy and other evergreen climbers are useful plants for the wildlife garden too, providing a winter haven for butterflies and nesting birds. Other shrubs that are good for early nectar include viburnum tinus, mahonia and flowering currant – and all will add a splash of colour and scent to the garden. A helping hand If the weather gets really bad, birds will need a helping hand. During mild winters, there is usually a plentiful source of food in the form of hedgerow berries, but when snow, frost and ice strike, birds are often forced into our gardens to seek out the extra food they need.

The people of Bakewell and of Derbyshire can be proud to hear that David Rawson, one of their own, has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year Honours list for services to the local and international community. In all his efforts he has been assisted by his devoted partner, Tina. At 6 foot 5 inches David, literally, stands out everywhere he goes and was a natural to become a sergeant as a young man in the Grenadier Guards where he met many of the country’s leaders at close quarters. Since then he has now been elected as President of the Matlock Grenadier guards. After returning to Bakewell, he soon took over the task of helping the town’s Christmas celebrations. For these he undertook, every Christmas, the installation of 150 Christmas trees, a Christmas crib and Santa’s grotto. He also organised the visits of fire engines, steam engines and many other attractions. Since 1980 he has been one of the main organisers of the Bakewell Carnival, held every July, including the duck race, raft race and the final procession, making it the largest and most successful carnival of this area. All the net income from this event is distributed to local charities.

MATLOCK ANTIQUES AND COLLECTABLES SOCIETY The society New Year party started with the usual splendid food provided by members and was followed by members talking about the commemorative ware they had brought. These ranged from a paperweight from the Boer war to a proclamation of the accession to the throne of Queen Elizabeth 2nd. Two items were very unusual, a ‘Dead Man’s Penny’, made of bronze about 5 inches in diameter sent to the family of every person killed in action in the First World War inscribed with their family name. The second was a photograph of a school ‘football’ team dated 1920, founded by a member’s grandfather, a headmaster of a school in a deprived area in Leeds. The team consisted of refugees from Poland, including Jews and they played without boots because they could not afford any. They got to the final in the competition, and the headmaster obtained boots for them, but at half-time when they were losing, they asked to take them off, and went on to win the match. The next meeting is a talk on Goss and Crested China by Brian Wood at 7.30pm February 14th at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock. Visitors are always welcome.

BASH – BAKEWELL AND ASHFORD FILM SOCIETY “SUMMER IN FEBRUARY”, 9th FEBRUARY
Bakewell and Ashford Film Society will be screening Summer in February. Cert 15 at the Medway Centre, Bakewell at 7.30pm. “The Newlyn School of artists flourished at the beginning of the 20th Century and the film focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and Harold Knight. The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain’s most sought-after artists, is at the centre of the complex love triangle, involving
aspiring artist Florence Carter-Wood and Gilbert Evans, the land agent in charge of the Lamorna Valley estate. True - and deeply moving - the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the approaching shadow of The Great War.” Films for the rest of the season are: 9th March: Skyfall (2012), 13th April: Intouchables (2011), 11th May: The Illusionist (2006), 8th June: A Late Quartet (2012) plus AGM & Summer Social.

CROMFORD WI Christine Levasseur, the Cromford WI President, welcomed members and visitors to the first meeting of 2014, and introduced Andy Pollock, well known locally for his 28 years serving as Countryside Ranger, who gave a very interesting illustrated talk about one of the most historic railways in the world, the Cromford and High Peak Railway. The railway, which faced great challenges such as steep gradients, was designed by Josias Jessop in the 1820s to provide a route for goods to travel from Cromford up to Whaley Bridge and then by canal to the developing town of Manchester. Andy showed historic photos, some dating back into the 19th century, and modern slides of a tranquil High Peak Trail, developed following the closure of the railway in the 1960s. Many of the members have walked along where the trains used to run, and can still visit the Engine House at Middleton Top and see the magnificent beam engine. The competition for a piece of railway memorabilia was won by Norma Marshall with her superb railway man’s pocket watch and whistle, second was Diana Flint with souvenirs of the Rocky Mountaineer railway, which formed part of a holiday in Canada, and third was Judith Hamilton with a train jigsaw. Entries included model trains and photos of the Ffestionog railway taken in 1936, all making an interesting display. Since the December meeting, members had enjoyed a Christmas lunch at the Market Place Restaurant, the Via Gellia Group Carol Service at Wirksworth Methodist Church, and a Sherry and Mince Pies morning. The next monthly WI meeting will be held at Cromford Institute on Wednesday 5th February at 7.30 pm, when Christine and Ken Levasseur will continue the account of their walk along Offa’s Dyke. The competition will be for “Something Welsh”. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month except August, and new members and visitors
are welcome – contact Janet Chambers on 01629 822319 for more information.

President Cynthia Machent took the opportunity of inviting Paula North from Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough to accept a cheque for £600. The money was half of the proceeds of a concert held at Highfields School, where the audience was treated to some excellent music by the Derbyshire City and County Youth Wind Band. While addressing the Club Members, Paula thanked Rotary for the support that they give to the Hospice. The running costs are in excess of £4 million and one 10% of the total is funded by the Government; the rest is drawn from the support of the community
and organisations such as Rotary. President Cynthia praised the work of both Rainbows and Bluebells Woods Hospices whose such sterling work serves the needs of families in Derbyshire and other local Counties. Matlock Rotary is a member of Rotary International and is dedicated to promoting peace, goodwill and understanding throughout the world.

WIRKSWORTH HERITAGE CENTRE OPEN WEBSTERS CAFÉ, GALLERY AND GIFT SHOP! Wirksworth Heritage Centre’s new venture WEBSTERS Café, Gallery and Gift Shop on St. John’s Street – was officially opened on Saturday 7th December by Ben Dew, Mayor of Wirksworth. Named after the Heritage Centre’s benefactress, Mrs Webster, who left the building to the Board of Trustees, this new venture is part of a larger building complex which the Trustees aim to develop over the next three years. The development will include moving the Heritage Museum from its current site in Crown Yard to the site on St Johns Street and will include a shop, gallery and café selling goods and products made in and around Wirksworth. The Trustees have taken the decision to close the Heritage Centre while the re-development work is carried out, but will continue to hold regular exhibitions including a proposed exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War and how it affected the people of the town. “We are excited by what the future may hold for the Heritage Centre and delighted to be able to open Websters as a Café, Takeaway and Gift Shop as the first step to bringing this building back to life,” said Joanna Faulkner, Chair of the Trustees. “We have a long way to go to raise the funding we require to fulfil our ambitious plans, and we hope the people of Wirksworth will continue to support us while the Centre is closed.

At Allwood we are sure that the quality and price of our handmade solid wood furniture can not be beaten. A small team of expert craftsmen, led by a national award-winning designer, work directly with the customer, cutting out all unnecessary overheads and costs which usually inflate the price. It’s a fact that most customers assume that genuinely handmade bespoke real wood furniture of our exceptional quality would simply be too expensive. A recent survey showed that many of the ‘standard chipboard ordinary’ kitchen suppliers, with their glossy brochures, commission based salesmen and huge overheads, were more expensive than Allwood. Why have ‘ordinary’ when you can have the ‘WOW factor’ for the same price or less? For a stunning real wood genuinely handmade kitchen built to your own requirements give us a try. With our no obligation quote / design you might be surprised at what you can afford! 0800 731 7351.

Fine craftsmanship & beautiful design Is this the heart of your home this season?
The first meeting of the new year began with members enjoying a glass of sherry or orange juice and a mince pie. Then we saw a delightful film with scenic views of villages in the south-west of France, close to the Pyrenees and the border with Spain. This was taken by Tony Raybould on a holiday to the picturesque village of Orthez a few years ago. Accompanied by an informative, and at times witty, commentary, we experienced French markets, churches, a bullring and also the seaside resorts of Bayonne and Biarritz. There were spectacular shots of a cable car ride, high into the mountains, and then a 10 kilometre train journey through a tunnel to another valley to see a large dam. There was also a visit to a vineyard with the obligatory wine tasting! The local choir singing outside the hotel on a very hot evening was a fitting finale to the holiday. Tony then showed a short film, shot in the garden at Chatsworth in autumn 2013, where some very interesting and diverse modern sculpture was displayed. Chairman Roland Corfield thanked Tony, after which a few games of bingo were played. Tea was served and the raffle was drawn. The next meeting at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock at 2pm on Monday 3rd February will be a talk by James Clark entitled ‘Lions led by Donkeys’.

Three members of Matlock Trefoil Guild have just returned from a trip to Mexico where they stayed at Our Cabana, one of 5 Girlguiding World Centres. They were there to experience the traditions and festivals of Mexico and were not disappointed. The visit coincided with Hallowe’en but the highlight was The Day of the Dead Festival, celebrated on 2nd November, when families decorate their homes and the graves of their loved ones so their spirits know where to return on earth. A very colourful event with an abundance of orange marigolds. The Centre was built in 1957 at Cuernavaca on the plains below the Sierra Madre and the smoking volcano Popacatapetel. Originally in the desert, the town has now expanded around it, but there are ample opportunities for service in the Community, a priority for the Centre. Mexico City was explored before travelling to Cuernavaca and the trip finished in Acapulco for a few days’ relaxation. On returning to Matlock it was declared a trip of a lifetime!

Wild birds really struggle to survive during a harsh winter, and providing them with extra food, water and shelter could be the difference between life and death. It is essential for birds to feed well during the day, every day, as a bird can lose up to 10 per cent of its body weight during just one cold night. Birds will eat almost any scraps that are left out for them, and leftovers like grated cheese, cooked pasta, pastry and dried or fresh fruit are a good source of energy. They also love high-calorie seed mixes and peanuts. Different types of food will attract different types of bird: finches enjoy sunflower and nyger seeds, robins like mealworms, and blackbirds and thrushes love to peck at apples and pears. In cold weather it’s best to feed the birds in the morning to replace energy and weight lost overnight. Feeding them again in the late afternoon will keep them going until the following day. Water is important too – just like us, birds need water to survive, and their usual drinking places, such as ponds, may be frozen over. Providing a shallow dish of

fresh water will ensure that the birds visiting your garden never go thirsty. All sorts of birds may visit the garden during very cold weather. As well as the more common blue tits, blackbirds and dunnocks, you may be lucky enough to spot nuthatches, woodpeckers, fieldfares and redwings. Shelter for birds is important, too: a nest box will be used by smaller birds for roosting in over the
winter, and could then become a place for breeding when spring eventually arrives. Within 10 years a single nest box can provide shelter for 100 baby blue tits – and as blue tits love to eat aphids and other garden pests, they’re pretty handy to have around. Birds will sometimes nest in the strangest places: old teapots, hanging baskets and clothes-peg bags could all end up housing a brood
– we once found a robin nesting in an old metal watering can. So be extra careful not to disturb a bird’s nest when clearing up around the garden. In fact, along with the toads, hedgehogs and hibernating insects, birds would probably prefer it if you left the tidying for a few more weeks.

The Cardiology Department at the Derby Hospital treats nearly 50,000 heart patients each
year and over 10,000 Echocardiographs are performed, so for the first time images can be seen in 3D. Isn't it wonderful – and this vastly improved image will make for easier and speedier diagnosis.

SARAH SAYS ‘YES’ AFTER PANTO WEDDING PROPOSAL
Best-kept secret of the Saturday night pantomime performance at Ashover Village Hall was a romantic on-stage proposal by popular village actor Bob Dronfield, who went down on one knee and asked his girl-friend, Sarah Massey, to marry him.

And, without hesitation, she said ‘Yes’... Just a few minutes after appearing on stage as ‘Dame Chubbycheeks’, proposing marriage to ‘Squire Betterwear’ and being given the brush-off, Bob arranged for Sarah to be invited on to the then-empty stage on the pretext that he wanted to talk to her. Though the Parish Hall was
TOP QUALITY MACHINERY FROM ALL THE LEADING MANUFACTURERS
still buzzing with chatter, the stage curtains were closed and the two were alone (apart from a photographer hiding in the wings) when Bob presented Sarah with a single red rose, went down on one knee and popped the question – before revealing the diamond ring he had in his pocket. Sarah’s answer came in the shape of a long kiss while
Bob was still on his knees and the beaming couple then joined family and friends in the main hall to tell them their good news. Town Crier Merrick Bull, one of the few people to be in on Robert’s wedding proposal plan, said later: “Everyone is delighted. They are a really super couple. We all wish Robert and Sarah every happiness in the world.”

It’s amazing how ordinary objects can be changed into something new and really impressive. On 5th January All Saints Messy Church, Bakewell demonstrated this by making animals out of balloons (pictured), puppets from socks and even inventing new puddings from jelly, sponge, custard and other delicious ingredients. All this led to exploring how Jesus’ followers found their lives were changed when they became his disciples - and how he still
guides and changes people today. Adults and children of all ages worked hard to produce some impressive results. There was also a pea race (transferring dried peas using a drinking straw and plenty of suck) and magicpicture making. Messy Church is a relaxed and lively approach to church for all the family. It meets on the first Sunday in each month at All Saints Parish Church, Bakewell. It is for people of all ages and especially those who don’t usually come to
church. There are craft based activities and some fun challenges from 9.15am, followed by a short time of worship. We then have breakfast together, which usually includes bacon butties, yoghurt and pancakes! The next Messy Church is on 2nd February, from 9.15 to 10.30am. ‘Come and join us - all ages are welcome though we do ask that children come with an adult’. To find out more ring Rev. Aron Simpson on 01629 813736.

Miller’s Dale and District W.I met in Litton Village on Wednesday 8th January for their first meeting of 2014. Almost all the members were present plus some visitors and it was really good to see everyone. Judy Cooper, our President, welcomed us all and then introduced our speaker Mrs. Joyce Buxton; she gave a most enjoyable talk, with beautiful photos, on her ‘Trek to Everest Base Camp’. Previously she had a life threatening illness but due to the research that had been done at The Hallamshire, Joyce was successfully diagnosed by use of a ‘cam pill’ and fully recovered. She then decided she would do something she had always wanted to do and so the trek to Everest Base Camp became a reality. We were all held spell-bound by her amazing journey and thought her to be an inspiring woman. Refreshments were then served and this was followed by The Business Meeting. The Christmas lunch at The Sickleholme Golf Club had been a great success - a good end to 2013. The Members enjoyed catching up with each other and the meeting eventually closed at 10pm. The next meeting will be held in Litton Village Hall on Wednesday 12th. February; our Speaker is Sandy Shaw talking ‘About something from Nothing’

Ian Morgan took Tideswell History Club on a virtual tour of Bolsover at our January meeting and told us much of its great historical importance. Because the town has Norman origins and a magnificently sited castle, the streets are laid out in a grid pattern very similar to the streets in Castleton. Some of the little lanes connecting these streets are known as “Becks” and one of these rejoices in the insanitary sounding name of “Cockpiddle Beck”. There had been a siege of the castle in the Middle Ages and in common with Castleton and Tideswell it had received a visit from no less a person than the “Hammer of the Scots” Edward the First. Sadly the castle keep and surrounding buildings were subject to “modernisation” in the Jacobean era of the 17th century, so much of the Norman ruggedness has been swept away. King Charles the First visited the castle in the 1630s and the owner William Cavendish supported his cause in the ensuing Civil War. However, when William departed from the field of battle at Marston Moor having lost 3000 of his men, he fell out of favour with the Royalists. Much later and after the collapse of Oliver Cromwell’s Commonwealth, William tried to win favour with Charles the Second by re-vamping the castle and laying on a sumptuous welcome but he was snubbed by a Royal nonappearance. Ian also told a very interesting story of when Richard Arkwright the Second (the “richest commoner in England”) wanted to buy Sutton Scarsdale Hall nearby – to clinch the deal he produced a £10,000 note! Only three £10,000 notes had been created and he possessed all three. Because of the huge success of his father’s cotton empire he was the Bill Gates of his time, even lending

The Year 8 students from S. Anselm’s had a trip to London last week to visit the Houses of Parliament. On arrival they toured the Palace of Westminster, learning about the history of Parliament and the art and architecture of the buildings which have come to be so world-renowned. Because the Palace is the home of our working Parliament we were not able to see the House of Commons or House of Lords Chambers, as both were in session. However, the visit became all the more significant when Patrick McLoughlin, our local MP and Secretary for State for Transport, stopped our groups and welcomed us despite his hectic HS2 schedule. From their tour the group was invited onto the first floor to an MP’s meeting

On leaving the Houses of Parliament, all were ready for lunch. Refuelled and rested, Mr Phillips, S.

The Matlock-Eaubonne Twinning Association will be visiting our friends in Eaubonne for the weekend of 2nd-5th May this year. Eaubonne is a thriving town in the northern suburbs of Paris, and the weekend visit usually involves at least one trip into Paris. Last time we went (in 2012) we had a splendid day visiting the Parc de Bercy, the National Library and a backstage tour of the impressive Opera Bastille, all organised by our partners in Eaubonne. The Association is now in its 22nd year, and is always keen to welcome new members. On our
visits to Eaubonne, members stay with a French family. Some members form close friendships with their hosts and visit each other more often. Other members have no involvement, apart from the annual visits. We try to ensure that you are hosted with people of a similar age, and if you have children, try to find a suitable match with a family with children of a similar age. You do not need to be able to speak French - of course it makes life easier if you try just a little to learn the basics, but you don’t have to. We have members who are fluent
and members who don’t know more than a dozen words. Most of our French friends speak English. If you would like to find out more, we would be delighted to welcome you to our Annual General Meeting which takes place on Friday 7th February at 7.30pm at the Imperial Rooms, Matlock, drinks and snacks provided! You can also find out more by looking at w w w. e a u b o n n e matlock.com which you can view in English or French, or by telephone to our secretary, Brian Smith on 01629 56559.

We think of St Valentine’s Day as the most romantic day of the year; its associations with love date back to pagan times and the observance of fertility rituals. Lots were drawn for marriageable young women at the Roman Feast of Lupercalia, a celebration gradually absorbed into respectable Christian traditions. St Valentine’s Day, however, continued to be marked by efforts at matchmaking. Hopes for a ‘match made in heaven’ have surrounded courtship with romantic superstition, and customs aimed at identifying a future spouse used to be popular around the Peak. Many a lass who sat shelling peas would count the contents of each pod; if she found nine perfect peas and placed them over a doorway she could expect to marry the first man to come through the door. Dreams of a future husband were encouraged by advising a girl to sleep with a slice of wedding cake beneath her pillow. Honeysuckle under the pillow led to erotic dreams, while a wedding would surely follow if honeysuckle was brought into the house — or if two teaspoons were accidentally placed in the same cup. Bachelor’s Buttons Over the centuries many amorous souls have tried to encourage the affections of another with aphrodisiacs. The oyster still maintains its old reputation but we have lost faith in tomatoes and
potatoes, both still an expensive rarity when they were favoured by the Elizabethans, who knew tomatoes as ‘love apples’. In Tudor times, the plant known as Bachelor’s Buttons was thought to have special powers, referred to in Quip (Greve, 1502:) ‘Therebye I saw the batchelor’s butons, whose vertue is to make wanton maidens weepe, when they have worne it forty weekes under their aprons for a favour’. A favour was a token given to the object of one’s

affection, more usually a personal item such as a kerchief, ribbon or garter. Bachelor’s Buttons had a later history in connection with lovesick bachelors, who were advised to put a small plant in one of their pockets. If it continued to grow, the chap would soon be married. Matchmaking Some customs were set aside for certain days of the year. January 20th, the Eve of St Agnes, was deeply significant for any maiden who wished to dream of the
man she would marry. St Agnes, patron saint of virgins, was martyred for her refusal to marry a man she did not love. A variety of associated traditions survived into late Victorian times, usually involving a day of fasting and a prayer to the saint. The most magical night of the year for a chance of supernatural assistance is Halloween, October 31st. Many old Halloween traditions were related to divination. A Derbyshire maiden could seek an apparition of her future husband by various means, such as placing a sprig of rosemary and a sixpence beneath her pillow before settling down to sleep. The reflection of a future partner would also be sought in a candlelit mirror. One favourite old divination custom was reserved for Christmas when an ash faggot, bound with green twigs, was burnt on the hearth. Each unmarried girl in the company chose one of the bindings; she whose bond was first to snap in the flames would be first to wed. Another way to bring your single status to an end is to touch or brush against the groom at a wedding. But for a wedding, there has first to be a proposal and for a proposal, romance. And what better opportunity is there for this than to celebrate St Valentine’s Day, when romance is really in the air? Julie Bunting
On July 12th this year, Bakewell will host its first Green Festival. It will be a day of celebration for all things ‘green’ to be found in the Peak District. So, from now until then each Peak Advertiser edition will contain something for you to think about or do, a green challenge for all the family. We start with this delicious Mozarella roulade for you to make. I can vouch for the fact that it is absolutely delicious to eat and not as difficult to make as perhaps it sounds. Have a go and let us know what you think - at the moment you can contact us on the website at w w w. b a k e w e l l greenfestival.org and soon on Facebook and Twitter.

and major) were to help youngsters to attend the local grammar schools i.e. Lady Manners in Bakewell and Herbert Strutt’s in Belper (as youngsters could get on the train at Darley Dale and travel either way) - the Ernest Bailey Grammar School in Matlock was not opened until the mid 1920s so until then the Lady Whitworth scholarship children went to Bakewell or Belper. I can’t recall any mention of any youngsters going to the Anthony Gell Grammar School in Wirksworth as they would have had to walk from Cromford Station up to Wirksworth.’ Iris was also the last Secretary to the Lady Whitworth Educational Foundation. She adds: ‘I passed to the DCC Archivist the minute book and records, (that I had taken on from the late Leonard Geeson… at Lovedays Solicitors in Matlock who was my immediate predecessor as Secretary to the Lady Whitworth Foundation), when the Foundation was wound up in the 1990s. Certainly from what I recall that as well as supporting local young people at the grammar schools the minute book showed that the Foundation also gave grants to those 18+ people who went in to further education. I recall one local beneficiary of such an award telling me that the £28 grant he had received in late 1920s/early 1930s helped him for a whole year at college in Nottingham. ‘Thanks again for highlighting Sir Joseph’s wonderful gifts to Darley Dale, surrounding parishes and districts that were actually brought to fruition by Lady Louisa and the other 2 legatees of Sir Joseph’s estate.’

Valentines Done Up Nicely The world’s oldest surviving paper Valentine is thought to be a love letter kept in the British Museum. It was penned by the Duke of Orleans, a French prisoner in the Tower of London, to his wife around February 14th 1415. As time went by, but still long before the advent of printed Valentine cards, hand-written lovers’ messages were put to rhyme. John Gay’s effort of around 1730 was a romantic offering with a nod to tradition, being a flowery verse spoken by an imaginary maid: ‘Last Valentine, the day

when birds of kind Their paramours with mutual chirpings find, I early rose, just at the break of day, Before the sun had chas’d the stars away; A-field I went, amid the morning dew, To milk my kine (for so should house-wives do), Thee first I spied, and the first swain we see, In spite of Fortune, shall our true love be.’ Illiteracy made it impossible for most lovesick folk to set their feelings to
paper. They could perhaps find someone with modest literary skill to compose and write messages on their behalf – for a small fee. T h e following admission from an enterprising paper-seller was quoted in the ‘London Labour and the London Poor’ in 1861: ‘It has been, and is still, a few pence to me, though I can only read and write middlin’. I write notes and letters for some as buys paper of me. I’ve often got extra pennies for doing up valentines in nice ‘velopes.
Why, I spoke to a servant girl the other day; she was at the door, and says I, “Any nice paper today, to answer your young man’s last love-letter, or to write home and ask your mother’s consent to your being wed next Monday week?” ‘Well I finds she can’t write, and so I offers to do it for a pint of beer, and she to pay for paper, of course.’ It was quite likely that both the suitor and his potential mother-in-law had to pay someone to read their letters at the other end. Either way, their responses are not on record. Julie Bunting
CRESSBROOK FILM CLUB
QUARTET – 14th FEBRUARY
Dustin Hoffman directs this comedy-drama adapted by writer Ronald Harwood. Beecham House is a retirement home with a difference. It specifically caters for former artistes including one-time opera singers Cissy (Pauline Collins), Reginald (Tom Courtenay) and Wilf (Billy Connolly). Once part of a quartet, things are complicated by the arrival of the fourth member of their quartet, Jean (Maggie Smith), a die-hard diva who also happens to be Reginald’s ex-wife. Theatrical temperaments and old hostilities flare as they adhere to that old showbiz adage ‘the show must go on’. Best-of-British actors won’t disappoint! Cert 12. Cressbrook Film Club has a 4 metre screen, 5.1 surround sound, really comfy seats, the bar is open for refreshments before and after the film. Doors open at 7.30pm, the film starts at 8pm and lasts 98mins. Membership of Cressbrook Film Club is £20 for the whole season with guest tickets available at £5.00 per film for adults and £3 for kids. Contact David on

01629 812159 Julie Bunting’s fascinating feature on Sir Joseph Whitworth in the last issue reminded me that I had not been walking around Darley Dale for some time, so off I set for a trip down Memory Lane! I parked in the car park to the side of the Whitworth Institute where donation boxes are provided for help
with maintenance costs. In a winter that is turning out to be extremely mild, this was a misty and murky day of freezing fog so my thermals made a rare appearance. Instead of wet and soggy undergrowth, an early morning hoare frost had created frozen works of art, especially numerous jewelencrusted cobwebs. After walking down through Whitworth Park past the obelisk that Julie had referred to, I made my way to Darley Dale station, part of the Peak Rail heritage line. Last year I went on one of their experience days and actually drove a steam train backwards and forwards several times from here to the outskirts of Matlock, something I will never forget
MY FAVOURITE WALKS – TWO DALES This is not intended as a walk guide
as it was amazingly good fun. Gently using the regulator to power the engine to make the distinctive chuff chuff sound was the best bit but I also
enjoyed pulling down on the whistle as a warning every time I saw a W sign beside the track. These show the driver where a footpath or right of way crosses over the line. On the opposite side of the road from the station and close to a couple of cottages which were designed by Paxton, a footpath runs parallel with the line before emerging opposite the Carriage Museum where Caroline Dale-Leech MBE has the most incredible collection of carriages and associated memorabilia. Open to the public on certain days it is well worth a visit, especially to hear Caroline’s amazing snippets of knowledge. Just past Red House I
turned down a footpath taking me back to the railway line which from here passes through meadows beside the meandering river Derwent. Trains were not running on this particular day but it must be great fun to walk along here when they are. After about half a mile I went under a subway beneath the tracks to follow an old path, eventually emerging by the main road opposite Darley House which for a time was reputedly owned by Sir Joseph Paxton. In stonework above the door of Darley House Lodge which is visible from the pavement, there is a shield and the motto ‘sic viresco’ which evidently means ‘thus I flourish’. This area of Darley Dale contains several imposing and impressive large houses, some with stable blocks alongside and lodge cottages at the end of each drive, probably built when the turnpike road was laid in the bottom of the valley in 1824. Most have their backs to the road and fronts to the meadows. From the A6 my route headed up Grove Lane with Audley St Elphin’s Park to my left. The much renovated and extended St Elphin’s House was Darley Dale Hydro in the late 19th century and then a renowned school but now forms the centrepiece of the retirement village. Walking uphill I crossed over Blind Land and headed to Hackney, emerging at the side of the former Primitive Methodist Chapel. After turning right I walked a short distance before making my way to Holt Road with views
across the valley through bands of swirling fog. Some properties here were much older than those I had seen down below, being stone cottages and farmhouses. Long ago this was the route of the former coach road north from Matlock at a time when the bottom of the valley was still marsh and bog. Every once in a while I came across gritstone water troughs designed to quench the thirst of passing carriage or cart horses and pack ponies. The old route descended to Two Dales, then known as Toad Hole, before ascending again to Darley hillside, carrying on to Northwood and Rowsley. Another old road came across the moors from Chesterfield and passed through Toad Hole before crossing the river at Darley Bridge. I now had a little detour into Holt Wood and Ladygrove where spooky mist was lingering beneath the trees. Sadly it was not cold enough to freeze the gloopy mud which lay in deep patches on the network of fabulous woodland paths that can be found here. Numerous springs emerge from the hillside, running through walls on occasion in a race to beat each other down through the trees.
Everywhere was damp and coated with a thick blanket of moss. I came across some fantastic strange shaped fungi decorating a decaying tree stump. Sydnope Brook which descends from moorland above was restricted by a succession of three dams, Potter Dam, Fancy Dam and Nancy Dam to provide power for Ladygrove Mill, built by Abraham Flint for spinning cotton. Records of 1785 show that the mill then had 400 working spindles, but in 1789 it was converted to flax spinning by Daniel Dakeyne of Knabb House. In 1830 his sons Edward and James invented and patented a revolutionary water-pressure powered disc engine, the 7 ton casing being transported here from the Hurt foundry where it was made at Alderwasley. Lace and rabbit skin gloves are also said to have been produced at Ladygrove. After wandering along an assortment of woodland paths and arriving at a magnificent cascade of water, I descended to a lower path beside the dams. I then walked past the complex of derelict mill buildings and modern commercial buildings before following Ladygrove Road to the base of Sydnope Hill
where Ladygrove House, built by the Dakeyne family in 1796, nestles majestically behind a high boundary wall. From here I had a wander around the quiet backwater of cottages surrounding The Plough Inn which has a datestone of 1755. Rather interestingly I discovered that the Two Dales tug of war team known as ‘The Ploughmen’ became the 600 kg Midland Champions in 2013. On my way back to the Whitworth Institute I called in at Coates butchers for some beef steak to make a nice winter stew, but before heading for home I managed to spoil my appetite for tea by consuming a simply scrumptious bacon, brie and cranberry baguette at the Terrace Cafe to the rear of the Institute, which is open 7 days a week and serves delicious food.

HIGH TOR HOTEL
Situated in Matlock Dale between the country town of Matlock and the spa town of Matlock Bath, this beautiful grade II listed building was first built in the early 1800s by Colonel Edward Payne. Throughout its 200-year history this building has seen many changes in how it is utilized, has a rich history of families living in the property and has even seen the odd name change. Colonel Edward Payne, who owned a number of properties within the area, first named the property the Ivy Cottage, since then it has gone on to be known as Tor Cottage, Tor House, High Tor Guest House, up to its current name the High Tor Hotel. The building itself has been used for a number of purposes, from private dwellings, a lodging/guest house, a hotel and even a school (Matlock Modern School). Unfortunately in 2007 the building was the victim to a devastating fire leaving very little of the original features intact, which given the rich history of the building is even more tragic. Having been left derelict for 5 years, the building was purchased by a family new to the area and under the shadow of the Tor after which the building is named, they set about restoring the property to its former glory. Having spent approximately ÂŁ3m on the
restoration project, the building is back in all its splendour. Many of the original features have been recreated or returned and the modern interior complements these features to breathe new life and welcome guests with open arms. Whether you are a guest of the hotel or popping in for a coffee, we would recommend taking a look around to admire its beauty and appreciate the effort involved in restoring the building to its original magnificent condition. Looking out through the stained glass and lead windows at the beautiful surroundings, our modern stylish restaurant offers a
perfect place to enjoy a fabulous meal. Whether you are a guest of the hotel or simply passing by, our restaurant is open seven days a week for lunch and evening service. Our chef is constantly altering the menu to match the best seasonal produce to offer fantastic full of flavour dishes. We believe in sourcing where possible high quality local ingredients to ensure our food is always as fresh as it can be, which our customers say shines through into the food. We offer a wide range of beautifully presented homemade dishes to suit all tastes from light starters to excite the palate, modern
twists on classic dishes or deliciously indulgent desserts. Should you have any special dietary requirements or allergies please let us know as we are more than willing to accommodate this for you. Our extensive wine list allows us to offer our diners a perfect wine to complement any dish served to create a fine dining experience. Our attentive waiters are always on hand to provide impeccable service and ensure you have the best possible dining experience with us.

In October 2012, a local girl from Matlock was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis at the tender age of 9. Her condition has been, and continues to be controlled by two weekly injections to ensure she is pain and symptom free. She remains under the excellent care of the rheumatology team at Sheffield Children’s Hospital and receives constant help, support and additional care from Arthritis Research UK. Phil Maycock, Marcus Smith, Dave Watts, Nick Jenkins, Pete Denton, Andy Hodkin, Martin Bonsall and Jake Hodkin have decided to participate in the London-Paris bike ride 2014 in aid of Arthritis Research UK. The LondonParis bike ride consists of riding approximately 300 miles in 4 days, averaging 75 miles a day.

HELP YOUR HOME WITH HELP FROM THE ENVIRONMENT
Energy available from the air or from the ground around you can be utilised by a heat pump system to provide all your heating and domestic hot water requirements. If land is available next to your property you could go for loops of pipe buried one metre down, or placed at the bottom of a lake if one is available. If space is limited, the pipes can be installed vertically in bore holes or you could opt for an air source system. Heat pumps can be connected to under-floor heating pipework or appropriately sized radiators. Heat is supplied in a gradual and continuous manner, taking into account the current outdoor temperature to provide just the right amount of heat to keep your house at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. At the heart of any heat pump is a refrigeration system which picks up heat energy from the environment at one temperature and delivers it at a higher temperature to

Sue and Joe Watmore have a Danfoss Air Source Heat Pump system, installed by Coefficient Renewable Heating Solutions. Their home, dating largely from
the 1800s, is a former pub which sits in the centre of a small Peak District village. Sue explained that getting the heat pumps was really exciting – “such a relief to be free of oil which was costing us a fortune and ordering it was something else to have to think about. Now our whole house is
lovely and warm and we have loads of hot water. We use a small, reasonably priced green electricity provider and are very happy to do our bit and have a small carbon footprint.” Note that from this year, the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme for domestic properties will

TDP Limited, Derby Road, Wirksworth, Derbyshire DE4 4BG
Since 2011 The Renewable Shop has been helping domestic and commercial customers to lower their energy bills, benefit from Government incentives and reduce their impact on the environment. Now based in Darley Dale, The Renewable Shop provides a comprehensive installation and maintenance service for small scale renewable energy systems. Future proof your home: Time is running out for home-owners to claim their Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) voucher. The voucher scheme finishes on the 31st March 2014. We urge you to act fast and get in touch, to ensure your installation is completed by The Renewable Shop and registered by the deadline. After the closure of the voucher scheme at the end of March, the Government will be introducing a new incentive scheme. From Spring 2014 home-owners will receive domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) tariff payments for 7 years, for heat generated by biomass boilers, heat pumps and solar thermal panels. Typical payback periods for renewable systems, against oil, LPG, solid fuel & electric heating, (including
fuel savings and RHI payments) are: 3 to 5 years for ground source; 2 to 4 years for biomass; 5 to 7 years for air source and 7 to 10 years for solar thermal panels. Whether you need an air source heat pump for your new build or pellet boiler for your old leaky property, we have the expertise to install a system bespoke to your requirements. Future proof your electricity usage with the installation of a solar PV system. A domestic solar PV system will typically cost £6,000 inc VAT; the payback is after just 6 years. Future proof your business: Now is the time for your business to replace your oil, LPG, electric or solid fuel heating system and switch to a renewable heat source such as a biomass boiler or ground source heat pump.
Benefit from significant annual fuel savings of 30 to 50%, as well as earning income from the Renewable Heat Incentive
(RHI) tariff: typical earnings are between £4,000 to £8,000 a year, which is locked-in for 20 years and guaranteed by the government. Commercial Solar PV installations also provide an excellent return on investment from 14 to 20% and significantly lower your electricity costs. Get in touch, call us today on 01629 735057 For renewable heating enquiries, ask for Jacob Johnson, or Solar PV & electrical contracting, ask for Tom Mastin.

TDP Plastic waste has a big impact on the environment whether taking up landfill or just left lying around. But TDP are doing their bit to help by turning it into highly durable outdoor furniture. Enabling us and our customers to maintain a reduced carbon footprint we only use waste destined for UK landfill, producing products that have a minimal impact on the environment. From seats, benches and picnic tables to bird tables and children’s play equipment, all the extensive range benefits from very low maintenance, there is no annual staining or treatments required, they will not rot or splinter and they are very stable. At home in a garden or in more demanding environments such as public parks, restaurants, pubs, the seafront and even RAF and Army bases, our furniture is very long lasting and desirable. Hathersage Bowls Club were looking for replacement benches with memorial plaques as their current timber benches had rotted. Linda Dyson, a club member, found TDP offering recycled plastic benches, so she called our sales office to discuss her requirements. One of the pre-requisites Hathersage Bowls Club had was to see the products before they purchased. Although we make our furniture to order, we extended an invitation to our factory. Having tried out some of the styles we offer, Linda, Liz Rumsey and their husbands (pictured enjoying the benches, once sited at the bowls club) decided on the Peak bench as being the most attractive and comfortable design. They
were also pleased with the fact that as the bench was made locally and from recycled plastic waste, there would be no more painting
or staining, and would last the club for many years. The two seats now stand overlooking the great view at this very active and attractive
Derbyshire bowls club. To discover more about our furniture please visit our web site www.tdp.co.uk or call us on 01629 820011.

It is a group of talented individuals dedicated to giving their best for their audiences, and has gained a far reaching reputation for putting on magical, fun, semi-professional family shows. Our latest production is Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’ – adapted by David Wood. Directed by Gordon & Jules Scott, Produced by Ged Fitzgibbons. ‘Witches really are a detestable breed. They disguise themselves as lovely ladies, when secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise. Luckily one boy and his grandmother know how to recognize these vile creatures, but can they get rid of them for good?’ Shows run from 20th 22nd February at The

We are about to let pass one of those days which once had a special significance, in this case Woolsack Day, which falls on 3 February. The date commemorates the martyr Saint Blaise, adopted as the patron saint of wool combers due to his having been tortured with implements resembling wool combs before being put to death. Sacks of English wool often used to be marked with his initial, B, while his supposed protection of sheep extended to treating their ailments with holy water consecrated on 3 February. The wool industry had a profound influence on the Peak, where monastic
farming granges made an invaluable contribution to the English wool trade. Sheep farming brought local jobs and spin-offs; hackle pins for combing wool were amongst the wide variety of pins and needles manufactured at Hathersage. A record from the mid-17th century shows a Tenter Yard Croft in this village, a tenter being a large frame on which woollen cloth was stretched to dry. A specific reference to combing mentions Tideswell, where in 1841 a former woolcombers’ shop was pulled down for road widening. And from Alport near Youlgrave comes a description of around 200
years ago describing Thomas Burdekin as ‘Very Bald the Head, wool comber’. Blessing of throats Textile workers such as combers and stockingers would take part in the general celebrations around Woolsack Day, though perhaps not on the same scale as seen in the Yorkshire woollen towns. This extract of a record from Tideswell mentions revelries at a local inn, apparently referred to under the names of the proprietors, Mr B.Baker and Molly Baker: ‘1795, Feb. 7, I was at B.Baker’s from 6 o’clock to about 12, with Mr. F.Baker and his stockingers. They
held Blaze today. Sam Slack was singing.’ And on February 5, 1799: ‘Shrove Tuesday. Mr. Francis Baker kept his Bishop Blaze today at his mother-in-law’s, Molly Baker. I went to them about 4 o’clock and stay’d till betwixt 1 and 2 in the morning.’ Saint Blaise also had another claim to fame, in that he once saved a boy from choking on a fish. He thus became the patron saint of those suffering from throat ailments, giving rise to the custom of blessing throats on 3 February, an event which is understood to survive in some parts of the world.

Curbar Church has an intimacy which is just right for Baslow Choir’s Christmas concert. It is dark and cold outside at this time of the year, and the church is always light and cosy within. This seasonal mood suited the programme of works which entertained the audience on the two nights of performance. Having overcome an initial sluggishness evident in the opening Willcocks’ arrangement of Ding Dong Merrily On High, the choir was fully attentive to pitch and timing when singing a lovely hymn-like work from the 1600s, Johann Ebeling’s All My Heart This Night. A collection of arrangements by Karl Jenkins followed. The first half ended with a recent composition which the choir sang some years ago by local composer, David Önaç, Veni Immanuel.
With its rippling piano accompaniment it received a fitting performance by the choir. The principal guests were Plague o’ Bells. This group of ten handbell ringers never fails to delight. The range of sound and rhythm achieved is remarkable. Michael Coe’s Ebb and Flow (specially written, we were told, for the handbell team) and the Dance of the Reed Flutes from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker suite were particular highlights. All of it entertained as the audience’s enthusiastic applause richly showed. A Rutter arrangement of Here We Come Awassailing, with each verse differently treated, started the second half. This was followed by another delightful work, a C.H Trevor arrangement of a Bohemian carol. Nor was
Benjamin Britten overlooked in this centenary year of his birth. The second half ended with another rousing Willcocks’ arrangement, this time of the traditional French carol, Masters in the Hall. Sadly, at the Saturday performance the talented Katie Strudwick was unable to be present to accompany the choir on the flute. With Chris Flint at the piano and Robert Girdler on the organ - and taking his place among the tenor and basses when opportunity allowed - the choir was well able to compensate for her absence with such able accompanists. Mid-half humour was provided by spirited readings given by choir members Rosemary Thomas and Nicky Wright. The choir was ably directed by Andrew Marples. As ever at this event, the audience
had a chance to participate with two well-known carols. It is a delight to attend the choir’s concerts. Everyone performs with such enthusiasm. It is just such a pity that there are not more men: the ladies now outnumber them by almost three to one. Your reviewer’s New Year wish will be to see more men step forward. Bill Blackburne

Agricultural Vehicle from a small transit tipper to a large dustbin lorry. These vehicles are usually blast cleaned on site and painted in one of our two large paint shops. One of our current projects and ongoing is the refurbishment of railway wagon chassis and bogies and all associated components. This project is for a local Derby based company who we have worked for for many years. These chassis are a staggering 70ft in length
and have to be transported with a special extended trailer. We grit-blast the surfaces to remove all the old paint and rust and then we apply specialist coatings. They are then rebuilt for use back on the rail lines. During 2011/12 we won the contract worth 150K to carry out all the blast cleaning and painting of the historic London Borough Market. All the columns and market roof were dismantled and transported here to Derbyshire where a local engineering firm carried out repairs to the scrolls and corroded areas of cast iron. It was then transported here to Lant Lane for blasting and refinish to its historic twotone green colours. The fabulous structure is now complete and is famously known as London Borough Market where traders sell all types of fresh food and drink, hot and cold. Lant Lane Limited offer a mobile blast cleaning service established over 30yrs. Our works include brick and stone cleaning to all types of properties. Cellars, gables, fireplaces and all types of wooden beams etc. Smaller components can be done here at Lant Lane, such as motorbike frames and components, wheels, cast iron radiators, lamp posts and stone sills. Most items and materials can be cleaned, so please give us a call for advice at any time.

One of the main drawbacks of working full-time is that I’m left with little opportunity to shop. I don’t mean a slog-around-thesupermarket sort of experience, the one where you go in for half a pound of carrots and a packet of cornflakes and come out with an exotically-flavoured family yogurt selection, a bumper size bag of the sort of pasta you don’t really like, and enough other items, which you’d previously never realised you needed, to fill a medium sized pantechnicon or feed a small developing country! No, I’m thinking more of the trip which sees me coming home with four bags full of ill-fitting trousers, a blouse which would fit me if I lost four stone and a skirt I’ll never wear. I’m not a good shopper. For example, I tend to walk into a store firmly believing that I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight and dropped two dress sizes since I left the house – this, of course, is almost never true. It’s likely I will have eaten a healthy breakfast. I’m partial to a bit of fruit or a nice boiled egg in the mornings, but it’s just as likely I will have followed it by eating some totally inappropriate item, generously smothered with lashings of butter and half a jar of strawberry jam (not always a great accompaniment to a sausage) and which is likely to result in the tape measure having to give a little extra, rather than winding itself in a bit, when
I get to the shop! Nevertheless, I can generally muster up the imaginary size 14 me when I get there... until I try on a pair of jeans which probably still wouldn’t pull up much further than my knees, even if I unpicked the seams on both legs and sewed them together as a covering for just one limb! If I don’t have a lot of success with the slim-fit trousers (and let’s face it, I never do) then my next port of call is often the rails of “tops” – and if it’s a “sale rail”, all the better! Incidentally, have you ever, like me, wondered why tops have never caught on with men? They buy shirts, T shirts and I’m told some fellows even have the urge to buy the occasional vest – but they never rush home with their carrier bags overflowing with tops... it’s just a thought for any budding entrepreneurs out there, maybe there’s a genuine business gold mine sitting waiting to be dug out! But, not for the first time, I digress. My first port of call in any shop is the “sale rail” I’m a sucker for a bargain (or perhaps I’m just a sucker?) It’s true that some of the most hideous elements of my wardrobe have started life on the sale rail where everything is a fiver – and in most cases, at a fiver the items are very definitely overpriced! If I do pick up something well made from the bargain basement it’s guaranteed to say XL in the label but have been made to fit someone four foot six or aged no more than seven. If it is my
size there’ll be buttons but no buttonholes or a toothless zip, the only thing I can pretty much guarantee with my sale rail clothes is that they’re very unlikely to be a bargain! If I can’t find a “top” that fits the bill – or fits, for that matter – I’m always excited with the prospect of a new cardigan, I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea – my other half thinks they make me look like an old granny – which, of course, I am! But in all honesty, I need to chuck a few out before I buy any more – or move into bigger premises and buy another chest of drawers! So, having exhausted my search for clothes that fit, I often branch out to the world of shoes – I love a good flattie and I’ve been known to sport a jaunty pump now and again....so it’s hard to explain why my wardrobe is full of shoes which see me teetering around like Dick Emery or are so high I can only wear them for five minutes before I get altitude sickness! I’ve got any number of gorgeous shoes stashed away which I never wear (don’t tell the other half, but a lot of them I’ve never actually worn) – the lovely pair with kitten heels... shame their colour clashes with every other item I own, then there’s the pretty sandals, lovely to look at on the shelf but always make me feel that I look like a giraffe when they’re on my feet (don’t ask)... or the nice ones that are supposed to be held on your foot with a little bar that sits between your first two toes, but actually end
up flying off at all sorts of angles with every step I take – and there’s nothing less attractive than a woman who’s just launched her footwear into the back of your leg, then used a string of expletives because she’s stood on something small and sharp as she struts about on the pavement in her bare feet! I’ve even got a pair of hiking boots, nothing funny about them expcept the fact that I never go hiking! Anyway, after reading what I’ve just written – and feeling qualified to vouch for the fact that all of it is true (I’ve checked the wardrobe and the giraffe sandals are definitely there) I’ve decided to revise my thinking... One of the main advantages of working fulltime is the fact that I have little opportunity to go out and shop. I don’t get a chance to buy cheap t-shirts that end up wider than they are long, the first time you wash them. Nor do I get any opportunity to bring home bags full of items that were very reasonable and will fit me just as soon as I drop the odd stone. Instead I content myself with the occasional trip to the supermarket to hunt out the artichoke flavoured yoghurts and all the other essentials. I popped in this evening as a matter of fact, on the way home from work, there were all sorts of things on offer – I’d love to tell you all about them but I’m afraid I’ll have to dash... well the pantechnicon won’t unload itself!! © Jean Goodwin 2014

WIRKSWORTH & DISTRICT PROBUS CLUB
Friday the 13th is reputed to be a day when things go awry but 31 members, wives and friends enjoyed a Christmas trip to York on this day in December. The Railway Museum, Minster and shops were popular places to visit on this grey but dry day. At the January meeting, Colin Pigeon, the Club’s Chairman, welcomed Lee Broderick who entertained the members with 6 audio visual presentations on her favourite subject Wild Life. Her skill and patience was seen in the high quality images of birds, animals and flowers in their natural environment on the African subcontinent and India. Stunning landscapes and the native way of life
added a supplementary dimension to the shows. The presentations also included beautiful images taken by her late husband who was also a keen wildlife photographer. The meeting was rounded off with a very humorous set of images that described scenarios that hopefully would not happen to travel photographers. A vote of thanks was given by Tony Holmes. The next meeting of the above club is on the 10th of February when Ian McEwen will be telling members “10 things you didn’t know about the Magistracy”. Meetings are held at the Hope & Anchor and commence at 10.30am. New members and visitors are welcome to attend.

The Bra Doctor Writes
on how to look after the loverly lingerie you had for Christmas. 1. Fold bras and pants in half and place in a lingerie bag, or use a pillowslip, tie a knot in the slip or you will lose your lingerie. 2. Wash on delicate only in your machine, do not use bio powders/liquid or fabric conditioners. 3. Hang to dry in the airing cupboard, do not tumble dry or put on the radiators. This way will keep your lingerie looking new for years, yes years. There is
lycra in almost everything these days and lycra doesn’t like heat, bleach or chlorine. Heat turns fabrics a grey colour so no sunshine drying. These washing tips can be used for your swimwear and nightwear especially silks. Spring has arrived in the shop with new arrivals in lingerie and swimwear, swimwear has its matching dresses all ready for a one stop shop. Sale rail still continues. Just a little reminder – two weeks to Valentine’s Day!
