These recollections of Earl Sterndale were put to paper in the summer of 1992 with the help of Mrs Florrie Wain, née Stone, who had lived in the village for all of her 84 years. Florrie spent her early years at Spar Cottage, which had the first water tap in a village where water supplies were famously scarce. Everyone collected rainwater to boil and drink, the only two springs being a good walk away. Many families fetched their water from the spring over the hill behind Hall Farm, filling two buckets hung from a yoke and milk cans for the children to carry. With few exceptions, children only ever attended the village school and left at the age of 13. The very first school was in Sycamore Cottage, but so long ago

Earl Sterndale that even by the early 1900s it was just a memory. At the time we met Florrie, she had been in charge of the Sunday School for 65 years, and had more children on the register than the day school. Their forthcoming annual treat was to Alton Towers, a far cry from the days when youngsters would be taken on a horse-drawn charabanc to Biggin for a picnic and an afternoon spent gathering nuts. Earl Sterndale maintained the old custom of ‘roping out’ at a wedding, when the church gates were fastened up with rope and the newlyweds had to pay a ‘bob or two’ to leave. By the 1990s, only a very few people could remember the ringing of the mournful ‘passing bell’ at the death of

a villager, tolled once for each year of his or her life. Over many years the dead were laid out by Florrie’s mother, Mrs Civil Stone, née Abbott. She also helped out at the other end of life’s journey as the local midwife. Whether assisting at births or deaths, her fee was nothing more than a family could afford and some had not so much as a penny to spare. Three more pubs Mrs Stone was the first woman in the village to own a car, though she was beaten to it by Mr Hall of The Quiet Woman. The only public transport was the Buxton/Ashbourne railway, accessed from the station at Hurdlow more than a mile away. The nearest blacksmith was at Crowdecote but Earl Sterndale did have a post office from around 1910 and several travelling salesmen did their rounds. Mr Wardle came from Harpur Hill with a hardware cart and in later years a draper came from Tideswell with a big suitcase of clothes and knitting wool. A Buxton greengrocer named Farrar stopped by, as did two butchers from Chelmorton. Earl Sterndale supposedly had four pubs in the distant past including The Golden Lion, latterly a

pair of private houses next to Spar Cottage. The 3-storey Woodbine Cottage on Main Street was built to fill a gap by a chap who brought all the stone in his motorbike sidecar, a few at a time. A couple named Budd lived in Woodbine Cottage in the early 1900s. Billy Budd had fought with the British Army in Afghanistan, presumably in the campaign of 1879/80, having to march 300 miles without boots, his feet wrapped only in rags. Billy and his wife presented a very neglected picture in their later years. Mrs Budd regularly walked to Buxton and back along the main road but was killed Continued on Page 10

BUILDING BRIDGES COMMUNITY SITES NEWSLETTER – JUNE 2013 Welcome to our first Community Sites newsletter! We are producing this Newsletter because we want to keep you posted as to how the Building Bridges Project is going. One purpose of the Newsletter is to encourage you to keep working at your pledge – and if possible to develop it further, especially if you have committed yourself to something which you have already achieved. That means that Bakewell is not standing still but growing as a community that builds bridges between people! A hundred up! We have now received a hundred bridge-building pledges from businesses, bodies, professional voluntary organisations and individuals. Well done Bakewell! This means that we now also have a hundred Community Sites across the town. The pledges are many and various – some are new initiatives whilst others are a commitment to develop what you are already doing. But added together they make up a great effort to enrich the life of Bakewell as a community. If you are a Community Site please encourage others to get involved by displaying your certificate for people to see. Going public Simon Hollis, the Manager of the Co-op, has kindly agreed to let us set up a Building Bridges display listing all the pledges that people have made. It is on the right-hand side just as you enter the Co-op from the main car park. From time to time we will update the pledges, change the pictures and include some recent news about the

project. The Co-op is a Community Site. The Peak Advertiser has published articles about the project, for which we thank them. Please send us stories about your pledge! We would like to promote any stories you have about how you are putting your pledge into practice. Please email us a short story – with a picture if possible – so that we can let others know what you are doing. About the Community Sites network: We now have a network of Community Sites in place. Do persuade others to join us! Whilst the Googlegroup does an excellent job developing the business life of the town, the Community Sites network will for the time being connect a different spread of organisations and groups with the aim of strengthening the life of Bakewell as a community. Co-ordinator of project: David Clark at or 01629 810172.

ANNUAL MEETING OF BAKEWELL TOWN & COMMUNITY TRUST After welcoming members and guests to the Annual Meeting of Bakewell Town & Community Trust held recently in the Town Hall, David Walker – Chairman, said he had much pleasure in presenting the Trustees Annual Report for 2012. He went on to say that despite the general economic downturn and the lack of grant-aid, the Trust had continued to move forward with a programme of refurbishment, completely refitting the kitchen adjoining the Court Room and the second floor office suite which was now available for letting. Further work had been undertaken on the stage area and work started on converting a former store-room adjoining the Assembly Hall into a bar facility. Plans had also been drawn up to refurbish the entrance hall and main staircase. A marketing project to explore business opportunities and to support community use, was in progress. Concluding his report, the Chairman acknowledged the commitment of the Trustees and staff, to take forward this community initiative to make the Town Hall a venue of choice at the heart of the community. Presenting the Annual Accounts, Jonathan Wicksteed said that whilst the financial position was sound at 31 December 2012, the Trust could not be complacent. This had been achieved by tight cost control and effective cash forecasting. He was confident that the operating results would continue to improve, being mindful of the need to move towards self-sustainability as the grant from the Town Council would cease in March 2014. Deborah Oddy was reelected as a Director/Trustee and Derby Community Accountancy Service reappointed as Auditors. The meeting concluded with a short discussion on the marketing opportunities, the prime location of the building and the excellent facilities now offered for a whole range of activities and events including private functions.

On Sunday the 16th of June, the Envirotrek season was opened in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District. 47 people collected 25 bags of garbage and other trash from the hills around Hope Valley. It was the very first of eight events of the Envirotrek Clean Up Series this summer, organised by Respect the Mountains in cooperation with KEEN Footwear.

In the morning participants gathered in Castleton. Three different groups, accompanied by conservation volunteers, went out in search of rubbish and much garbage was collected. All sort of things were found: tent poles, a fork stuck in a tree, old pottery, empty bottles and a lot of portable barbeques. After the morning Clean Up, a delicious lunch made by

volunteers was enjoyed. A lot of local parties were involved, such as Peak Mountaineering. The Peak District Tourist Information, the Hollowford centre and the Hitch ‘n Hike store helped promote the event! The finder of the most original piece of rubbish won a pair of hiking shoes from KEEN Footwear. And the most enthusiastic searcher was rewarded with a Respect the Mountains

necklace. In the afternoon participants could try climbing, caving, a ridge walk or a high ropes course, together with local guides and Peak Mountaineering. While hanging onto the rocks they could oversee the heather fields and hills of the Peak District. Others went walking up the beautiful hills, learning the ropes and the last party was taken to explore the caves.

THE FIRST EVER, SMALLEST EVER POETRY FESTIVAL IN LITTON VILLAGE The idea of a Poetry Festival in Litton Village was first discussed at the funeral of one of Derbyshire’s most successful Poet Laureates, Ann Atkinson. That was in May last year. From there, Matt Black, the current Derbyshire Poet Laureate, and Rosie Ford who lives and writes in Litton, got the ball rolling and now the committee made up mainly of local people is hell bent on making it a success. Supported by Derbyshire Arts and the Kitley Trust and now a part of the Buxton Fringe festival, the programme is packed with poetic possibilities. What to expect? The weekend Friday 12th July to Sunday 14th July begins with a star-studded evening of readings with JOHN HEGLEY heading a crew of accomplished poets, Nell Farrell, Conor O’Callaghan and Cathy Towers. And all for the price of two pints of bitter! (£6.00) Best to book in advance for this and all events. See below for details. BYO drinks or bring a drink from the local pub, the Red Lion. And on Saturday there’s poetry for all the family. The events in the morning are FREE! Bookstall, Soundscape in the church garden, a Poetry Bus for all, an Open Mic session in the church, a Write-and-Walk session with Chris Jones, a film about John Keats and a chance to get some juggling practice. After that, a ticket for everything from lunchtime

STITCH, KNIT AND NATTER Stitch Knit and Natter – is a very friendly group of ladies who take a couple of hours out of their busy lives once a week to relax, sew, knit, crochet and natter with like minded friends. And if you come as a stranger you are guaranteed to leave as a friend. You do not have to work on any of the joint projects. Many of us just work on our own pieces. If you are at all interested in anything I’ve mentioned or would just like to come along, and see for yourself, you will be made very welcome. We meet every Thursday 2 – 4 pm at the Joseph Whitworth Centre, Darley Dale. If you prefer, contact Marilyn first on 01629 733246 for more information.

to the evening Ceilidh will cost you only £6.00! Again, book in advance to avoid disappointment. The ticket includes a choice of five workshops, then Poetry Reading with three of Derbyshire’s Poet Laureates: Matt Black, River Wolton and Cathy Grindrod followed by a Ceilidh with the band, Fine Fettle. And we go out with a bang on Sunday morning with a Poetry Grand Slam in the Village Hall. For tickets, ring 01298 871564. If there’s no reply, leave a message and you’ll be contacted. For details of the programme, how to get to Litton and where to stay, go to the official website www.littonpoetryfestival.wo IT’S A POETIC BARGAIN! SEE YOU THERE!

Bolehill W.I.

Jill Sprakes gave an interesting talk to Bolehill WI on Tuesday 18/6/13 titled "From Sheep to Shawl" with her assistant husband David who helped with props. Jill, an ex school teacher spoke with passion about her hobby, spinning, dying and knitting. Jill sources her fleeces mainly from local farmers and as well as using wool she has also made items from horse hair, dog hair and Alpaca.The members were given a sample of wool which they tried hand spinning. Jill was also informative about the breeds of sheep. The Herdwick have a thick fleece so are used for carpeting, where the Wensleydale make lovely draped cardigans and their fleeces are much sought after. Jill brought in finished items from bags, hats, soft toys to jumpers and a multi coloured cardigan. Jill also does another talk titled "Colours to Dye for" which the group will invite Jill back to talk about in the future. Outings for this month are Tea and Tour at Shardlow on 3/7/13 and the Group walk around Wirksworth on 8/7/13 followed by a cold buffet at Waltham House.The Group are also going to Denman College Oxfordshire in August. Bolehill WI meet at 7.15pm in the Methodist rooms, Wood Street, Wirksworth on the third Tuesday of the month. The next meeting will be held on 16 July 13 and the speaker will be Helen Monk - Denby A Potted History, so please make a note in your diary and come and join us for an enjoyable evening.

Derby Mountain Rescue Team (DMRT) recently took delivery of a dog transport van courtesy of Derbyshire Constabulary. The van had previously been used by the force’s drugs control unit for transporting their sniffer dogs, but had been decommissioned and retired from active service. It had been due to be auctioned off, but Detective Constable Phil Lucas, a keen hill walker, suggested that the van, worth around £2,000, could be of use to the voluntary mountain rescue team and contacted Chief Constable Mick Creedon and Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles to suggest that the vehicle was given to the team as thanks for their service to the force over the years. Mr. Creedon and Mr. Charles both agreed with the suggestion and the van was consequently presented to representatives from the team at the force’s Ripley headquarters, where Mr. Charles handed over the keys to the rescue team’s dog handler, Rich Warriner. The van will be used by Mr. Warriner to transport trainee search dog Elf to training and callouts. Elf is a four-year-old rough haired collie, currently reaching the final stages of his training. Once fully graded, he will accompany the

it’s a win-win arrangement for both organisations. The bonus for CAB and its customers is that the new Town Hall base is nearer the town centre, so is more accessible and closer to public car parks and transport links. The new office accommodation is just off the main reception area at the Town Hall, formerly occupied by the District Council’s housing section. Part of the District Council’s commitment to CAB is to provide rent-free accommodation, currently at a former residential property it owns on Bank Road in Matlock. Following the CAB’s move down the hill to the Town Hall, the District Council plan to sell the four-bedroomed Bank Road property and save £8,500 a year running costs. District Council Chief Executive Dorcas Bunton said: “The CAB’s move to the Town Hall makes perfect sense for both organisations and although they will be operating as a separate entity, there will be crossovers from local issues such as housing and benefits where we envisage our residents will see real advantages from accessing public sector and voluntary services in the same building. “Following the restructuring of our departments here at the Town Hall last year, various office moves have taken place, releasing ground floor office space. The great thing about this new arrangement is that it improves an important local service to our residents and at the same time saves money. “We have always prided ourselves in achieving value for money here at Derbyshire Dales District Council, and the financial pressures being placed on local government right now mean it’s more important than ever to find smart ways of saving cash.” Derbyshire Districts CAB Operations Manager Sara Lagoe said: “The new Town Hall offices offer a much improved environment for our clients. At a time when we anticipate increased demand, this move gives us a much better base from which to operate.” The finishing touches have been made to three interview rooms and a waiting room for CAB, plus a new entrance lobby and further screening, separating the CAB from the District Council’s own interview booths and reception area to provide confidentiality for visitors.

On May 12th Bakewell Golf Club held another of their successful Charity Golf Days. The organisers this year were Vice Captains Peter Freeman and Hilda Mellor (ably assisted by husband Ted!) who ensured a very smoothly run competition run as a Stableford Am Am in teams of four. Entrants also included several mixed teams. The weather proved to be typically spring-like perfect for the morning golfers and “challenging” for the afternoon teams. Nevertheless the course played perfectly. The winners were the team of Past Captain, Adrian Fewings, Chris Ashbrook, James Trevethick and Roger Upton with 85 points on a count back. Second were Steve Rowland, Murray Scott, George Oliver and Vice Captain, Peter Freeman who also scored 85 points. Third were the team of Past Captain, Paul Dungworth, T. Collinson and S. Kewley with 84 points. Nearest the pin prizes were won by G. Davies (5th), James Trevithick (18th) and Val Cousins (18th Ladies). The golf was followed by

A busy Lunch Club which has been supporting elderly people in Matlock for over 30 years is in need of more helpers to ensure its work continues. The Club has got much busier these last few months with some new and some returning members. The Club is based at Denefields housing complex in Matlock Green and runs sessions every Tuesday from 11am. We would dearly love to find a few more helpers as some of our older ones have retired. We have around 30 members ranging in age from 50 to 93. The Club helps break up the week for many people and builds new friendships and we have a good laugh! The day starts with a cup of tea/coffee and a chat. We

have a raffle, followed by lunch, always a traditional meal followed by pudding. We have meals out every few months and Christmas lunch, using the Community Transport scheme to get us there. The Club is helped a lot by grants and in the past has received grants from the County Council, the Ernest Bailey Trust and North Derbyshire Voluntary Action. This has bought new equipment and helped with our costs. Someone who could spare 3 hours a week would be ideal. If you can’t do every week you could be put on a rota doing alternate weeks or even once a month. Contact - Chris Smith (01629 583512) or David Brown (01629 732585).

We met as usual for our monthly meeting at Litton Village Hall on 12th. June. Our business and The AGM report, held in Cardiff, were discussed. We had an excellent day trip to Gawsworth Hall and Jodrell Bank. The weather was lovely, we all enjoyed ourselves very much. Members brought plants to sell at our meeting later than usual due to the poor weather; this was to raise funds for our group. The evening’s Speaker was Mr. Peter Wild, and he gave an excellent talk, including slides, on The Chesterfield Canal. The Project – to clear and

reinstate the canal, had taken over 20 years, and was carried out by the sheer determination of the volunteers. The slides showed ‘before and after work’ and were most impressive and we really were entertained by his talk. Our next meeting is on the 10th July, 7.30pm at Litton Village Hall; the Speaker will be Mr. John Firth and his talk is entitled ‘Artability’. New members are always welcomed – please contact our President Judy Cooper (01298 871191) with any enquiries or details.

Rose Cottage, a little further along, had been home to a fellow known as ‘Mr Putty’. He died during the great snow of 1947. During that unforgettable winter Earl Sterndale was cut off for seven weeks. The house called Bank Side, smaller then than now, disappeared completely beneath the drifts and a group of villagers dug a tunnel to reach the old chap living there on his own. He was rescued in the nick of time, suffering from frostbite and almost

Florrie’s husband Billy was in the ARP and dashed to the scene with his stirrup pump. He got back home just as hundreds of incendiaries were being showered on Earl Sterndale. Most of the local Home Guard were on duty at Buxton, leaving only three of their number in the village – and they were all in the pub. Barns and outhouses were set on fire but worse was to come when the church roof took a hit. The vicar and a party of parishioners managed to save the registers and communion plate before the church practically burnt to the ground. The treasured old Saxon font was split by the heat, later repaired and restored to its rightful place. By daylight, local lads were out collecting used incendiaries, gathering 58 in just one field beside the church. Meanwhile the womenfolk got together and

service appeared in the national press without mention of its whereabouts due to reporting restrictions, but the white-haired vicar was recognized hundreds of miles away by local man Joe Nadin, stationed in Scotland. Joe was home on leave on the Sunday that pub landlord Alf Gibbs – a captain in the Home Guard and who ‘should have known better’ – drove off in his big blue Standard car to collect a large unexploded bomb lying somewhere out in the countryside. Jack Shenton sat on the thing to keep it steady on the journey home, where it was exhibited to allcomers in the sitting room of The Quiet Woman. Apparently the pub never emptied as fast as it did when the bomb disposal team arrived to check the find – it was immediately, and very carefully, carried outside and blown up.

With so many men away on service, women had to take on heavy jobs at Dowlow Works, which crushed and burned limestone. Local families took in refugee children from the cities and everyone in the village was provided with a gas mask during a fitting day held at school. Mrs Wain’s Band Village women knitted socks, mittens and balaclavas for the troops and organised fundraising events for ‘our boys’. Whist drives and dances were held in the village school, the music always supplied by Mrs Wain’s Band – Florrie on piano and clavioline, husband Billy on drums and sons Ken and John playing accordion and saxophone. Long before I met Florrie, others had told me about her much-loved band and its generous attendance at fundraising events, often some distance from home, not to mention wedding receptions and very tipsy gatherings such as Sheen wakes – playing for Est 1996

dancers until the wooden building rocked. The band was equally essential to the success of Flash Teapot Parade and Christmas parties at Buxton’s Devonshire Hospital. Nursing staff noticed how patients would move their stiff limbs and joints to keep time with the band – thus live music was introduced to physiotherapy sessions. Mrs Wain’s Band was in full swing during WW2, then at long last it seemed that every village for miles around wanted her to play at their Peace celebrations, with high jinks going on until daylight. The post-war years saw St Michael’s Church and the Methodist Chapel become much closer than formerly – in fact the Churchwarden currently plays the piano for Methodist services – and Earl Sterndale has an active twoclass CE Primary school. Overall, there is little sense of isolation here nowadays – except, that is, when the snow comes and forgets to stop. Julie Bunting

David & Tony have made many Munro trips together, and also many with the various members of this final trip. Indeed David is carrying on a family tradition with his dad Eric completing the epic in 1984. This weekend was even better planned than all their other trips, as David & Tony had dovetailed their final Munro together and arranged for family and friends to ascend the final one as a group. A splendid climb of over 3,400 feet took them to the summit of Meall nan Tarmachan high above the shores of Loch Tay, celebrating at the top with a glass of fizz followed by a celebration party back at base. By a lovely coincidence, the grandsons of David & Tony bagged their first Munro as Grandads bagged their last! Matlock Munro Magic!

On Sunday 25th May, 28 friends from Derbyshire, Yorkshire, London & Scotland met in Killin in the Central Highlands of Scotland to mark a special event. David Furness and Tony

Thornley – both former teachers at Highfields School in Matlock - were about to ascend their final Munro – peaks in Scotland over 3,000 feet. The peaks (all 282 of them!) are well spread all

over the Scottish Highlands and Islands and some are so remote that getting to them is a feat in itself. The people who have ‘bagged’ them all belong to a relatively exclusive ‘club’ as completing the feat takes

patience, energy & tenacity - and of course fitness! It may also take many years in most cases as walkers will pinch weekends here and there to attempt to ‘bag a Munro’ when they have the time.

Teddies galore! All colours of the rainbow are being knitted by some of our ladies for the organisation “Teddies for Tragedies” and we don’t stop at teddies,

some of us can even knit dinosaurs and others can knit two socks at one time on one circular needle. So as well as knitting there is a great deal of entertainment

as we sort out our tangled threads! Others of us are working our way through cotton patchwork squares and other various designs to

make quilts for teenage boys on behalf of Project Linus. Project Linus is an organisation that supplies comforters to children of all ages, including teenagers who have to deal with the trauma of illness and some of the more unpleasant aspects of life. If you would like to know more about Project Linus come along or give me a ring. And, if you can use a sewing machine and would like to help us to put some quilts together we’d love to hear from you.

Jo Dall – Matlock based Health Kinesiologist, was really surprised when one of her clients, aged 9, handed her this picture after an HK session relating to confidence and mood swings. “This picture says exactly how Grace felt after the session,” says Jo, and it really touched me. Many of us know when our children aren’t right, but we don’t know what to do about it. Our child might be unhappy, cry a lot, be constantly unwell, have trouble sleeping, suffer with fears, phobias or night terrors. They may have changed. They may lack confidence, have trouble with friendships or problems with learning. They may suffer with intolerances or allergies or auto immune diseases. They may be angry or frustrated or shy and introverted. Sometimes we just wish that we could speak to their bodies and find out what is wrong… “With HK that is exactly

what we do,” says Jo. “Through the amazing and unique technique of muscle testing we can tap into the body’s unique inner wisdom and ask what is needed to clear any blocks or stuck patterns of behaviour so

that the body can regain its natural balance… allowing your child to feel well, vibrant and full of energy and enthusiasm once more”. So what is HK? It is a therapy which combines the ancient

Health Kinesiology

wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine with muscle testing. It is very relaxing and non invasive. What can it help with? Any imbalance of body and mind. We very much concentrate of treating the “whole” so that clients see significant improvements with their goals or concern. Who will benefit? Anyone. I treat pregnant Mums, babies, young children and teenagers right the way through to adults. How many sessions will be required? On average this seems to be between 2-3 for children, less for babies. How long does a session last? Approx. an hour. How much does a session cost? Babies-12 months are free. 12 months-16 years £40.00. Adults £55 for an initial consultation and thereafter £45.

Taddington Gardeners

Last week saw the third meeting of the newly formed group ‘Taddington Gardeners’. There was an excellent turnout and local resident & gardener David Young led an entertaining and highly informative discussion on ‘Enemy Number 1 - Waging War on Slugs & Snails’. The emphasis throughout was on good management and economically viable, natural controls rather than on ‘chemical warfare’. Novices and experienced gardeners alike felt that they had learnt a lot from the discussion and also enjoyed the opportunity to swap plants and pool their knowledge. The group meets at the Bramwell Institute in Taddington on the second Wednesday of the month, and a variety of activities are planned. New members from Taddington, Priestcliffe, Blackwell and Brushfield are welcome at the meetings. For further information please contact Jan & Sue at taddingtongardeners@gmail. com

Grindleford Allotment Association is once again holding an open day on Sunday 14th July between 2.00 and 5.00 pm. Come and see how allotment holders have made use of almost every part of the available plot of land. Seven years ago the old Grindleford playing fields were largely overgrown with brambles, apart from

the top of the field where the annual November 5th bonfire is held. A group of villagers set out to make better use of the land which was held in trust for the use of the village. They set about creating allotments with help from the Peak Park Sustainable Development Fund and other donors, which included the Heritage


Tuesday 28th May saw the official opening of The Peveril Centre, a new Conference Centre in Castleton. Despite dwindling numbers the members of Castleton Methodist Church unanimously decided to move onward and create a magnificent new Conference and Worship centre in the Chapel premises. Boasting one very large room, one slightly smaller one and a commercial kitchen, the suite of rooms are now open to all for hire. From visiting school children, an outdoor activities base, to quiet retreat days the site can be used by a wide variety of groups and is offering different options to choose from, whilst still retaining a Christian presence here. Aware that keeping a building like the chapel running requires immense funds and dedication, the whole place has been revived with this new lease of life. The first job was to take up the pews and create a huge carpeted space in the chapel itself, along with updating the décor and replacing with practical furniture. All the windows have now been secondary glazed making a welcome warm environment. With the commercial kitchen already in place this created a versatile range of space ready to hire out. Phase two, for there is more to come, will see the downstairs rooms renovated and additional


A fun family day behind The Lime Kiln Pub in Wirksworth. There will be a Bar, BBQ with sausages and burgers from our local farm shop The Pigs Tale, a bouncy castle, surprise guests from Disney Land, ice creams, a Fire Engine, crafts and games for children, raffle and tombola, stalls and much more. It will be a great day not to be missed.

facilities put in. The building is already used by the local youth service as well as local clubs and societies. These additional rooms offer a variety of uses to a much wider network of groups. For further information look to m or phone and chat to someone on 01433 623063/620670.

Lottery Fund, Grindleford Parish Council, Grindleford Horticultural Society and Grindleford Playing Fields Committee. Now almost all of the lower part of the field has been developed. As well as allotments, members have created a small vineyard, bee hives, an orchard and barbecue area, wild life ponds, a communal shed with rain water collection tanks and communal compost bins. Allotment holders also rebuilt more than 70 metres of dry stone wall adjoining the site. This year an area has been allocated to the Grindleford pre-school play group who greatly enjoy their visits to the allotments. It is also the first year that there will be a harvest from the vineyard, so allotment holders are eagerly looking forward to producing the first Grindleford vintage.

At the open day the allotment holders will be on hand to show visitors round their plots and explain how they grow their own. There will be information boards giving information about what is being grown on each plot. Visitors will be able to view the beehives and vineyard and our enthusiasts will be pleased to discuss these with you. There will be plant and produce stalls as well as light refreshments, for which we invite donations. This is a very relaxed event where you can come and go as you please within the open period and check out those features that interest you. There is no charge for entry. The allotments are in the centre of the village beside the main road in Grindleford (B6521) near a bus-stop (served by 214 and 65 buses), opposite the Mount Pleasant Garage.

Milford Animal Feeds (MAF) is a new business venture for two local young lads, who opened their doors for business earlier in June. They stock an excellent selection of animal feeds, including ranges from Spillers, Heygates, NAF, Dodson & Horrell, and James Wellbeloved, and a full range of food, toys and chews for all pet needs, even stocking fish food. They are able to supply everyone, from the smallest pet owner to a smallholder. They can supply feeds for cattle and sheep in bulk loads, helping to keep the costs down for the customer, which is essential in the current climate. MAF is also offering a local delivery service.

Their shop is based in Bakewell at Milford; on the A6 going out of Bakewell towards Ashford, it is a medium sized, light and airy building with plenty of car parking space. If you are planning to visit any of the local shows

The Calver Cricket Club annual BBQ takes place on Saturday 13 July at The Derwentwater Arms, Calver. Also taking place is the annual 6-a-side cricket competition. This is a friendly competition played between local teams from The Derwentwater Arms, The Bridge Inn, Calver FC and Dads of the Junior players. Proceedings get underway at 2pm. Calver Cricket Club played their first game in 1832. Today the senior team lie third in the 2nd Division of the Yorkshire and Derbyshire Cricket

league, and fourth in the Longstone League, a League contested between local village teams on a Wednesday evening. Calver also have a promising Junior section with coaching taking place on the ground on Sunday mornings and successful teams competing in Under 14 and Under 11 Leagues. The club would like to thank their new shirt sponsors, Richard Mundy Building Design Ltd. and Power System Services. Everyone is welcome to come along and support the BBQ and watch some very ‘entertaining’ cricket.

We make, design and install hand-made, bespoke kitchens.

They require a lot of thinking about. Besides the work surfaces and cupboards, there is plumbing to consider, electrical wiring, flooring, tiling, appliances... So it’s good to know you’ll have the personal attention, vision and support of an expert specialist retailer...

News that the expedition bidding to make polar history by crossing Antarctica in winter had been abandoned because of ‘difficult terrain and technical challenges’ has been greeted with a mixture of sadness and relief by the team at William Twigg Matlock Ltd, whose engineers have played a key role in the heroic venture. Steel specialists headed by the company’s Bakewell Road works manager, Alan Boden, designed and built the steel ‘skoots’ (sledges) which have been carrying vital fuel to power the giant tractors hauling the expedition’s living quarters, scientific equipment and essential supplies. Twigg’s director Richard Tarbatt said this week: “To say that we share the disappointment of the expedition members is an understatement but we have been following the progress of the ice team very carefully and it is clear that they have faced some amazing challenges. “The five-man team has battled temperatures as low as minus 50 degrees, mostly in complete darkness, while crossing terrain pitted with deep crevasses which could easily swallow the tractors and are almost impossible to spot. “Everyone at Twigg’s feels that it is better to be safe than sorry. While we are saddened by the decision to abandon the attempt, we are relieved that everyone is safe. Expedition leader Brian Newham has told us that he considers it would be reckless and irresponsible to press on.” Staff at Twigg’s have sent a message of commiseration to the ice team but, says Richard, have been heartened by the knowledge that their skoots have proved their worth since the expedition set off in March. “As far as we know, they have been a great success,” said Richard. “They say a great deal about the expertise of our engineering team.” Latest news from the icecap is that the expedition will not withdraw immediately but will concentrate on planned ground-breaking scientific research. Though the attempt to

cross Antarctica has failed, the expedition that was originally led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes before frostbite forced him to fly home, has earned a place in the history books. Since March, the team has covered over 300 kilometres and climbed from sea level to almost 3,000 metres up the polar plateau - the furthest distance and longest period that any expedition has travelled in the polar winter months.

It’s time for Bakewell Show and a super new entertainment to crown one of the most popular family events of the summer. Organisers are proud to welcome what promises to be one of the most exciting centre ring entertainments in recent years. Gullivers’ Carnival Spectacular, a fastpaced all-action Victoriana trick riding show presented by stilt-walking ringmaster Oliver Gulliver Esq. The quizzically eccentric traveller showman will introduce professional performers, both human and equine, who will amaze visitors with their mastery of roman riding, rearing,

Roll up, Roll up.. falls, drags, sword fighting, humour, action, stunts and drama. And this year there is a new dimension to Bakewell Show… a dedicated Equestrian Day on August 6th – the day before the official show on August 7th and 8th.

Sheldon Day is back again this year on the 20th July with a new twist, which means everyone can take part! As well as all the usual events on the day, including the village produce show, family dog show, stalls and village games, Sheldon Day is running an online ‘make a vegetable animal’ competition (for children of all ages!) to enter before the event. All you need to do is make an animal out of vegetables, photograph it and send your picture in, for a chance to win a great prize. Georgina Tanner, Chair of Sheldon Village Meeting, said ‘Sheldon Day is about families having fun and

also showing off our lovely village. We always used to have a vegetable animal competition at the village horticultural show. This is a great way to bring that back and get people involved from further away as well’. The afternoon events start at 2pm and features the Ashbourne Brass Band, great ball race, magician, cream teas, tractors and steam engines, and a hog roast BBQ. The village Fell Race takes place at 7.30pm on 18th July. Visit us on Twitter @Sheldon_Village or for more details of the whole day and the photo competition.

Chris Farrow said: “The demonstrations are always very popular, whilst the talks are a great opportunity for visitors to meet the artists and appreciate the range of skills we have to offer. “This is our largest exhibition yet, with all 65 members taking part – including some new members who have recently joined the group.” Another popular feature is the silent auction. This year 14 members are donating ether a piece of work – some designed and created specifically for the auction – or a place at one of their unique workshops, to raise money for local charity Helen’s Trust which supports people with terminal illnesses and their families. Of the Matlock members taking part in the auction are potter, Anne Bates and

artist, Susan Burgess. Anne will be offering one of her hand built contemporary ceramic vessels (pic attached), whilst Susan’s painting captures Beeley Moor (pic attached), a wellknown area around Chatsworth. Buxton’s mixed media artist Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp is offering a place at one of her popular interactive workshops. The Silent Art Auction will run exclusively for the duration of the Fair, commencing at 6pm on the special Friday night preview evening and closing at 3pm Sunday afternoon. The exhibition runs 10am – 4.30pm 20th and 21st July. Admission is free. For more information and to view a selection of members’ work visit .uk

NATIONAL NAMES MINGLE WITH QUALITY INDEPENDENTS AT PEAK SHOPPING VILLAGE Peak Shopping Village is nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park in Rowsley just a couple miles away from the world famous Chatsworth Estate. Since opening just over ten years ago, Peak Shopping Village has become a firm favourite with shoppers because of its unique location, great mix of national and independent retailers and free parking. During your time at Peak Shopping Village browse the stores of national names such as Pavers Shoes, Cotton Traders, The Baggage Factory and many more. If you’re shopping for outdoor clothing and equipment you can enjoy great choice and value in one place as the shopping village is home to Mountain Warehouse, Yeoman’s Outdoors and Field &Trek. All of these national names and trusted brands sit alongside quality local independent retailers giving you the opportunity to take home something a bit different from your time out in

Derbyshire. No shopping trip is complete without a pit stop and the Peak Shopping Village restaurant and coffee shop, Massarella’s serves a home cooked hot buffet at lunchtime in addition to a range of lighter bites available throughout the day. Passing the cake stand without adding a fresh home baked scone or Victoria sponge is always a challenge! The Restaurant is fully licensed so you can enjoy a glass of wine or cool beer as you enjoy your lunch alfresco. If it’s a hassle-free shopping experience that you seek for your time out and about in the Peaks then plan your trip to Peak Shopping Village. Open every day but Christmas Day with ample free parking, shoppers can enjoy a little retail therapy without the stress associated with larger shopping centers. Don’t forget dogs are also welcome on site and in several stores.

DONKEY SANCTUARY For twenty-five years, Dame Judi Dench and myself have presided over Freshfields, The Actors’ Donkey Sanctuary in Peak Forest. We have both tried to act as professionally as we can and give as much of our individual time and attention to assisting John and Annie Stirling in their devoted efforts to rescue sick, abandoned, abused and cruelly neglected donkeys, and so far, over twenty-five years, they have both rescued and homed 627 donkeys.

I like to believe Judy and I have been hands-on and not just figureheads and we are reassuringly told we have certainly been there when required and we both love the place so much. To John and Annie’s credit, Baz had his 51st birthday in May and Bergerac is close behind him at 48. So we must all be doing something right. We were pleased, seven years ago, to welcome Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove to join us in our

quest. Both Martin and Jenny helped bring in rescue cases from Cyprus, Malta, Hungary, Canada and America, Greece and France! So the fine herd is now a European family and the best in Derbyshire. Our work with special needs children has also

grown in leaps and bounds in twenty years and we now welcome over 2,000 children a year for therapeutic days out with the donkeys, an exercise which both the children and the donkeys love. We always say ‘Freshfields’ is a place ‘where children and donkeys share a trust’. We welcome visitors from Wednesday to Sunday every week between 21st March and 26th November. Even though I say it myself ‘The Actors Donkey Village’ is something we are very proud of and we would love you to share the experience with us. My best wishes June Brown. MBE.

THE 82nd ASHOVER SHOW 14th AUGUST The 82nd Ashover Show will be held on Wednesday 14 August 2013 . The show is proud to be one of the finest traditional agricultural shows in the country and regularly welcomes around 15,000 each year. This year is very exciting as the show ground has been expanded and redesigned to enable us to offer even more for our visitors to

see. There will be additional rings, more trade stands and better viewing of the livestock areas, not to mention a whole new Members’ area overlooking the Centre Ring. We are also very proud to announce a Battle of Britain Memorial Flypast over the ground in the afternoon. There will be a wide

variety of cattle, sheep and shire horses on display in the very popular livestock classes. In the afternoon in the Shire Ring there will be a sheep dog display, a traditional logging display and the Four Shire Blood Hounds will be entertaining the crowds before the traditional tug of war between a number of local teams. The Light Horse Section has been re-developed this year with a number of new classes being added to the already exciting and popular schedule. There will be classes for all levels of experience including ones specifically for young children who are keen to enter the showing disciplines and also awards for local entries. The highlight of the show as always will be the Fancy Dress which will be judged by the President in the Centre Ring. The Poultry Section continues to grow and the marquee has once again been extended to accommodate the ever increasing entries. Next door will be the dog show which is always incredibly popular with classes for both pedigree and non-pedigree dogs, so why not come along and have a go, you can enter on the day. The Horticulture Marquee will showcase absolutely stunning displays which just get better every year, as does the Appetizing Ashover

Marquee which will have on offer the very best of local produce from around the area. A visit to the Craft Marquee is also not to be missed. Out on the showground there will be over 100 trade stands, many of them new for 2013, selling everything from farm machinery to bird tables. The children will be entertained in the exciting Rides and Slides area which this year has the addition of a climbing wall courtesy of the Air Cadets, and all visitors will be tempted to sit and relax at one of the many food outlets around the ground. Every one of the rings has entertainment throughout the day. In the Main Ring there will be the exciting SHEEP GRAND NATIONAL! This is something we are all looking forward to seeing and later there will be the colourful Grand Parade where the winners from the livestock classes collect their trophies from the President, Mr David Brailsford. For up to date information on the 2013 show and all of the contact details, please visit our web site at Advance tickets will be available to purchase on line at a reduced price to those on the day and we very much look forward to seeing you there on Wednesday 14 August.

Bakewell Music Festival's ‘Acoustic’ 4th Year!

Sunday July 28th 2013 at Ashover

Ashover Classics Car and Bike Show

Autojumble - Craft Fair Sunday 28th July 2013 10:00 - 16:00 Ashover Show Ground, Ashover, Derbyshire S45 0BA • Classic Cars • Bikes • Entertainment • Kids’ Rides • Food • A family day out! Organised by 4 local Rotary Clubs for local charities

Enquiries: Email Web:

For the last two years a Classic Car and Motorcycle Show has been open to the public in the farmer’s fields opposite the Black Swan in Ashover. It has grown enormously in popularity and last year over 2,000 people came along.


Sunday 23rd June saw the official opening of the Taste Tideswell Community Kitchen Garden. The community kitchen garden has been a work in progress since the Taste Tideswell project began in December 2010. The official garden opening tied in nicely with the beginning of Tideswell



All proceeds (£8,000 last year) go to local and national charities – carefully selected by the four Chesterfield Rotary Clubs. Exhibitors’ vehicles are £5 a time (up to two passengers free). There is something of interest to everyone for just

£5 per person entrance fee (car-parking is free, organised by the local Scout Groups – and under 12s enter free). You can enjoy the cars, plus a fairground, food, ice-cream and a bar etc., plus various performing troupes. Dozens of stalls will be run not only by the local Inner Wheel Clubs, but also by the guys and girls who spend their weekends running specialist autojumble stalls at these events. The general public are admitted from 10 am. After two successful years the word is spreading, so this year spectator numbers should exceed last year’s. The car parks have loads of room to spare, and the event is sign-posted for miles around. Make a note in your diary, and we hope to see you and the family there on the day.

Wakes Week, a week-long celebration of the wells dressings. Wakes Royalty from past and present opened the garden by cutting a string of vegetables instead of the usual ribbon. The current Wakes Queen, Sophie and her Princess Imogen were joined by past Wakes Queen, Zena, who was crowned in 1949! The afternoon’s food was prepared by Tideswell School of Food’s head chef, Joe Hunt who provided a tasty BBQ, salads and homemade fruit cordials. Villagers also enjoyed locally produced wine that was kindly donated by The Derbyshire Winery. Taste Tideswell Chairman, Pete Hawkins explains, “The community garden has become a key part of the Taste Tideswell project, it’s a great way for people from the village to get involved and help to support the community. Our volunteers have done a superb job of turning what was a piece of wasteland into a fully functional kitchen garden.� “A special thank you should be given to the Stone Warehouse who

donated the stone for the garden and Markovitz who helped to transport it.�

others. The Festival will also be having Mandoline and Ukulele workshops. (Bring yours!). As this is a 'family orientated' Festival expect lots of children's entertainment, like the Bezerkaz Circus performers as well as Face Painting and Tatty Bumkin. There will also be showers for the campers, together with good selection of food and a shopping village including for the grown-ups a variety of locally brewed Thornbridge beers as well as ciders, soft drinks and wines. So all in all you can kickback, listen to the music and have a Pizza delivered to your table. Look forward to seeing you there!

Our Visitor centre includes the Cafe@ the Cavern with a wide range of delicious produce, including daily specials, light snacks and fair trade coffee. The visitor centre and cafe is dog friendly, with canine treats available too. Investigate the exhibition and hands-on archaeology

For centuries, curious visitors have explored and marvelled at the natural subterranean world that is Poole’s Cavern. Found deep in the limestone hills close to the historic Spa town of Buxton, the cavern once gave shelter to pre-historic cave dwellers. Legend tells of a medieval robber’s treasure hidden deep underground. Known as the ‘First Wonder of the Peak’ after an early travel guide published in 1630, Poole’s Cavern became a popular attraction for wealthy visitors and even royalty. In 1853 the cavern was improved for Victorian visitors by the Duke of Devonshire with paved walkways and gas lighting.

We are celebrating our 160th anniversary with events throughout the summer, including underground Shakespeare and Victorian themed tours. See our website for details. Explore Poole’s Cavern today, with our expert guides, and journey through the beautifully illuminated chambers to discover for yourself the magnificent underground scenery of the Peak District. Back above ground take a stroll through Buxton Country Park woodlands to the hilltop viewpoint of Solomon’s Temple with spectacular Peakland views. Or for the more adventurous

area or browse through the rock and gift shop with beautiful gemstones, jewellery and fossil samples from around the world. We also stock a wide range of local produce from preserves to chutneys, handmade soap and books, maps and guides of the region. Poole’s Cavern is open every day. Rain or shine, underground it’s always fine.

FIDLER TAYLOR GENERAL SALE 25 Years With Derbyshire Aggregates

Two local deceased estates substantially contributed to the eclectic mix of items included in Fidler Taylor’s recent General Sale. For those buyers with an interest in nostalgia, the sale certainly gave a wide variety of familiar items. As is very much the trend at present it was these items and other collectables which brought the strongest interest and the briskest bidding. Two items of luggage sold at £65, a box of military webbing, gas masks etc achieved £75 and an intriguing collection of original WW1 newspapers sold at £75. A mixed lot of military buttons achieved £170, medals and ribbons sold well and interest was strong for coins, notes and stamps. Three photograph albums sold at £220, matching the highest price achieved in the day and two

postcard albums sold at £80. A half sovereign sold on its money at £125. Children’s books including Biggles, Just William and Observer all sold well and items with a military or local history connection also attracted brisk bidding at modest prices. Ceramics attracted a good level of interest with continental porcelain and Wedgwood Jasper ware being well represented and selling well. An extensive Royal Crown Derby Posy pattern tea service sold at £220, the smaller lot achieved £68. A Minton’s Guinness ashtray, with integral matchbox holder, sold at £22 and a C19th ceramic egg hen with associated chicks achieved £55. Mixed lots all sold well with blue and white particularly attracting

strong bidding. A lot of three extensively damaged items of Moorcroft sold at £95. Silver and plate attracted a good level of pre-sale interest with a variety of reasonably enthusiastic commission bids, many of which were unsuccessful, with the items selling at stronger money in the room. Jewellery continues to be popular, with two Blue John pendants and a paperweight selling at £130. One of the finest lots in the sale was a Victorian glass claret jug with silver rim, spout and lid which sold at £210. Furniture continues to offer exceedingly good money for creative home furnishers with modest and disappointing prices being achieved for the sellers, selected items however continue to do well and pine and oak remains

popular. Edwardian mirror fronted wardrobes, which might have sold two years ago at around £150 are only achieving £50. There is a noted tendency for the trade not to buy as strongly in this section of the market although, to a degree, this is offset by interest from private purchasers undertaking their own paint effects and vintaging. The Auctioneer’s July sale is on Saturday 20th and their annual summer Antique Sale, for which the catalogue is almost fully subscribed, will be on Saturday 17th August.

AUCTION REPORT A warm summer evening brought brisk bidding to Ashford-in-the-Water War Memorial Hall when Fidler Taylor held their early summer property auction. One lot was unavoidably

postponed prior to the sale and, of the remaining lots, only one was left unsold at the end of the evening. Harcourt, on the outskirts of the village, being a detached bungalow in 1.6 acres and in need of considerable renovation, sold for £455,000. A town house for renovation on the outskirts of Matlock achieved £71,000 and an investment opportunity comprising a vacant lockup shop with flat above in Eckington, sold at £45,000. A fourth lot sold prior to auction at a figure close to the top of the pre-auction guide. The auctioneer’s next sale is on 16 July 2013 and includes 12 acres of mixed grass and woodland Nr Crich and a two storey stone former warehouse at Ashford-in-the-Water. Entries are now being taken for an autumn sale.

Adrian Fewings, Managing Director of Derbyshire Aggregates, is seen presenting a long service gift to Christine Carter, who has been with the company since 5th June

1988. Adrian thanked Christine, from Bakewell, for all the hard work and devotion that she has given to the company over the past 25 years and told her that she has been a great

asset to the company. Christine was also presented with a bouquet and card. All the staff toasted Christine with some sparkling fruit juice and a celebration cake.

On June 26th 31 members, wives, partners and friends of the Matlock Branch of the Grenadier Guards

Association were invited to Buckingham Palace to a garden party where Her Majesty the Queen

inspected the Queen’s Company of the Grenadier Guards, and presented new colours to the Nijemgen Company. The Queen addressed all on parade, who gave three cheers to Her Majesty for inviting everyone to a Grenadier Day in Buckingham Palace Gardens.

All our group enjoyed walking through the forecourt, and then the quadrangle up the redcarpeted staircase to the Bow Room and out through the French windows. We then walked over the West Terrace into the Palace gardens, to enjoy a very memorable afternoon.


SELLING YOUR HOME? IS YOUR PROPERTY GETTING NOTICED? Is it being advertised in the areaʼs No.1 publication – the Peak Advertiser, which has the largest distribution in the area, delivering 31,000 copies door-to-door.

No..? Talk to your estate agent!

The last meeting of HOBS until September took place at the Wheatsheaf where we enjoyed an excellent three course meal comprising soup/orange juice, salmon salad, and a choice of dessert. Tracy Townsend, the fund raising manager for Macmillan nurses came to speak to us, giving an insight of how money is raised purely by fund raising, and a breakdown of how all the money is spent

on the care of cancer patients and their families. This was a very enlightening and interesting talk and made everyone realise how lucky we are to have such a hard working and dedicated organisation. We are now looking forward to our Whitby outing in July and are keeping our fingers crossed for a sunny day! The evening ended with a game of bingo. A meeting enjoyed by everyone.

BOOK COMPETITION WINNERS The winners of the Book Competition for Love is in the Air and The Lightning Tree are Mrs Hutson of

Bakewell and Mrs Pauline Knowles of Hathersage. Thank you to everyone else who entered.

The art of well dressing has been adopted at Newholme Hospital in Bakewell as part of the therapy for older patients with mental health problems within Derbyshire Community Services NHS Trust. Patients produced this intricate design – which incorporates parts of the Trust’s logo and initials with the help of occupational therapists from the Older People’s Mental Health Service. Occupational therapist Lorraine Turner said: “The benefits of horticulture are well researched and documented as being an excellent therapeutic activity for people experiencing mental health problems. We have adopted the art of well dressing as being one of our major therapeutic resources.” The finished design was put on display at the hospital for patients, relatives, visitors and staff to admire before it was blessed by hospital chaplain Dr Lide Ellesworth. The design used a range of materials, collected from the grounds of the hospital, including leaves, flowers, grasses, seeds and alder cones. Lorraine added: “Well dressing is a communal activity and recognises the importance of local tradition. As a true community art it has become an integral aspect of the hospital year in Newholme Hospital.” A volunteer from the Stanton Day Hospital made the frame for the well dressing and over 60 people were involved in the project. Care and therapy for patients with dementia at Newholme Hospital - and other community hospitals run by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust – is in line with the national dementia strategy. The strategy, called Living

Art in action: members of Newholme Hospital’s therapy team who helped patients to create a well dressing incorporating the hospital trust’s logo and initials for Derbyshire Community Health Services awareness of Well with Dementia, outlines raising FOR SALE IN good quality care for all with dementia by sharing ideas PEAK DISTRICT dementia, from diagnosis to and achievements with the the end of life, and promotes local community.

Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales, Councillor Peter Slack, cuts the ribbon on the new toddlers’ play area The ribbon has been cut on a superb new bonus for toddlers at Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Gorsey Bank play area in Wirksworth. Less than two years after the creation of a £40,000 multi-use games area and zip line for older children, partnership funding has seen the addition of a separate play area for toddlers. Wirksworth Town Council, Acclaim Housing Group, the Exton Trust and Gorsey Bank Residents’ Association have combined with the District Council to further enhance the popular attraction. Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales Councillor Peter Slack, who cut the ribbon on the new toddlers’ play area, helped by local four year-old Elizabeth Ratcliffe, said: “It is good to see so many agencies working closely together to jointly invest in children’s play. “The Residents’ Association deserve praise too for their support in each stage of the consultation. They advised on what local children wanted from this new initiative and we are proud that it is local parents and children who have, in effect, designed the new play area.” Andy Pollock, chairman of Gorsey Bank Residents’ Association, said: “We are grateful to Derbyshire Dales District Council for listening and delivering exactly what the community desired.” Also attending the official opening was Wirksworth Mayor Councillor Tom Dew, who said: "The Town Council has been delighted to help the District Council create a great asset for the whole town." Chris Springall and Lewis Rose attended as Trustees of the Exton Trust, which said: “We are delighted to have been part of this excellent community-led project and to see for ourselves the benefits it will give to local children in a safe and friendly environment.” Gerald Taylor, Chief Executive of the Acclaim Housing Group, said, “We are delighted to support this development now and in previous years. Our Community Fund budget allows us to support initiatives and projects that aim to enhance our

communities within Derbyshire Dales. We are hopeful that the new toddler play park at Gorsey Bank will be very well used

and will provide a challenging and engaging environment for the toddlers of this community.”

In the summer of 2011, a cradle swing and multiactivity unit were among the attractions at the Gorsey Bank play area.

CHANCE TO STEP BACK TO james darwent THE TIME OF HENRY VIII architecture

Families can step back from the 21st century to the time of Henry VIII by joining the Great Tudor Farming Day in the tranquil Dove Valley on Saturday July 6. The outdoor event, from 11am to 4.30pm at the Dove Valley Environmental Centre, Under Whitle Farm near Longnor, will take people back to 1537 to share the daily lives of the Horobin family. Children can dress in Tudor outfits and try their skills at spinning, weaving, farming, gathering vegetables and herbs, cooking and making reed lights as our 16th century ancestors would have done. Families can watch a reenactment of skulduggery at Upper Whitle Farm, meet a Tudor quack (doctor), discover how to research local history, write with a quill and learn the secrets of the Tudor landscape and wildlife. Peak District National Park ranger Lynn Burrow, who helped organise the event, said: “We want to open up a different world and show people what life was like for a Peak District farming family during the time of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. “Children can become

part of an oxen plough team, and everyone can try their hand at dry hedging, archaeological exploration and Tudor dancing.” The event is co-ordinated by Elspeth Walker of the Dove Valley Environmental Centre and run mainly by volunteers. Although free, donations are invited to help cover costs.

People should bring a packed lunch (drinks will be available), and clothing suitable for a day outdoors including wellies in case of wet ground. The postcode for the Dove Valley Centre is SK17 0PR, or ordnance survey map reference SK107 305 (between Longnor and Sheen), tel: 01298 83282.

Designed in Derbyshire built for the peaks juicybike electric bikes


Flagg’s Ali Le Carpentier is the proud owner of a brand new Juicy Bike, courtesy of Wheels 2 Work - a charity that provides bicycles, scooters, and now electric bikes to those who are otherwise unable to travel to work. Ali faced a 7 mile commute to her new job at Bakewell Pool, and buses that could take her from Flagg when her irregular shifts demanded were few and far between. Despite being a keen cyclist, the hilly terrain she faced on the route would have meant a gruelling trip on a pushbike that would have seen her arrive at the pool exhausted - no good for a lifeguard. Nor was a scooter ideal, as a 17-year-old A-Level student working only part time would struggle with the associated costs. At 6

pence per 30 mile charge and with no insurance or tax to worry about, Ali concluded that an e-bike was a perfect fit. After a brief interview with Wheels 2 Work, she visited Eco Republic in Buxton to look

for a suitable e-bike, finally deciding on a Juicy Bike Classic. Ali recently completed her first triathlon (an event that in large part consists of endurance cycling) to raise money for orphanages in

Vietnam. Her commute became great training since an e-bike with a pedalassist system still requires pedalling from the rider – only now she could stay in the aerobic zone for longer and cycle further without fatigue, using the assistance only when needed. Ali’s mum, Jayne Le Carpentier, hopes that other young people will take up Wheels 2 Work on their offer: “It’s given Ali her independence. She can pop into Bakewell or Buxton whenever she likes and she’s no longer reliant on the buses - or on lifts from her parents.” If you think you could use a bicycle, scooter, or e-bike to get you to work, don’t hesitate to contact Wheels 2 Work Derbyshire on 01629 821923 so you can get riding soon.


TEAM ECO EFFORT MAKES FOR A ‘DAM’ FINE DAY IN THE DERWENT VALLEY A team of environmentally conscious employees recently joined Peak District conservation volunteers to take part in a series of four eco exercises around the Derwent Valley. Members of staff from Brother International Europe (BIE) took part in the first day of its second annual environmental project, where employees donate a day of their time and volunteer to carry out physical activities that help make a difference. With environmental awareness a key part of the company’s culture, 34 members of staff travelled to the Peak District from BIE’s headquarters in Tameside, Greater Manchester, then split into teams to take part in one of the four environmental initiatives, which took place on Monday 17 June. Swapping shirts and laptops for outdoor clothes and protective gloves, BIE staff including Chairman and Managing Director Mr Yuichi Tada, divided up into groups and went to: •Fairholmes Wildlife Area, by the Derwent Dam, where they helped spruce up a pathway by clearing brambles and resurfacing the walkway. •Birchinlee (known as Tin Town), a village built by the Derwent Valley Water Board for the workers who constructed the Derwent and Howden Dams. Now a popular Peak District tourist

Staff from BIE treated the historic trail to a tidy up with a litter picking project. •The Meteor Path at Derwent Valley, a path that leads up to the site where a Meteor jet crashed into the hillside. Staff wheelbarrowed stone up to the path, to help make a hard surface for visitors to walk on to prevent damage to the woodland. •A bridleway on Derwent Edge, where they used pick axes and spades to carry out drainage work to alleviate a problem with standing water on this popular route for walkers and mountain bikers. Dave Cramp, from the Peak District Conservation Volunteers, said: “Employees from BIE

demonstrated what a difference can be made to the environment with the donation of time and commitment to teamwork. Thanks to BIE and the four projects carried out around the Derwent Valley in one day, a ‘dam’ fine improvement has been made in the Peak District.” BIE has 167 employees based at its headquarters. BIE represents the combined European operations of Brother, a print and technology specialist. At the end of the Peak District day Mr Tada, BIE’s Chairman and Managing Director, was delighted to present a £2,000 donation to Jim Dixon, Chief Executive of the Peak District National Park Authority, to support further volunteering work. Mr Tada said: “We are

delighted to make a donation to support ongoing volunteering activities that will help improve and protect this beautiful national park. Environmental awareness is a key part of our company culture. These projects allow us to further improve this awareness among our employees. Group activities outdoors give staff a chance to work together and stand back at the end of the day knowing they have helped make a real change. “We hope the volunteers enjoyed their tasks, strengthened their team spirit and learned more about the wonderful natural environment on their doorstep. We also hope it has given them a taste to come back with their family and friends.”

Litton Logs

HETAS approved suppliers of consistently dry seasoned Firewood & Kindling and highly efficient briquettes.

07801 928 927 01298 872 806

Litton Logs supply dry seasoned firewood that can help you on the long journey of becoming eco-friendly. Realistically becoming totally independent of fossil fuels is never going to happen to most of us because we like our creature comforts too much. Burning firewood for heat does constitute a significant step on the ecofriendly path as doing so is considered carbon neutral. Being a renewable source of energy is firewood's trump card as all trees harvested for fuel have to be replanted under Forestry Commission Guidelines. All the wood used by Litton Logs comes Forestry Commission Certified, is

seasoned, processed, and stored here in Litton and we dry our firewood using windrows. Others may use kiln drying but we prefer mother nature and the wind, thus keeping the carbon cost of production as low as we can. We are members of the Woodsure Plus scheme which took over from HETAS in verifying our production process and the quality of our finished product. We value our reputation for supplying good quality firewood at a sensible price. Litton Logs customers with outside log stores are already preparing for the coming winter by buying logs at last year’s prices before prices rise in August.

Since 2011 The Renewable Shop, based in Tansley, has been helping domestic and commercial customers to lower their energy bills, reduce their carbon dioxide emissions and benefit from impressive returns on investment — between 12 and 20% depending on the existing fuel system that is being replaced. For businesses that choose biomass boilers or ground source heat pump systems, not only are they totally independent of fossil fuels but they’re also making 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 energy costs. A domestic solar PV system will typically cost £6,000; the payback is after just 6 years and there’s also a very healthy return on investment of 12 to 16%. With a new heating tariff soon to be announced by the government and the availability of homeowner grant funding* there is every reason for homeowners to go green. Their recent projects include solar PV installations for domestic and commercial customers (up to 50kW systems); heating installations, including biomass boilers,

ground source and air source heat pumps, underfloor heating, solar thermal and fully integrated multi-technology solutions. To demonstrate just how effective green energy systems are, they recently installed a combination pellet and log biomass boiler system at Upper Hurst Farm Caravans & Camping, near Hartington; the new system supplies the main farmhouse, holiday cottage and caravan site’s shower block with all their heating and hot water. The company is on target to reduce their energy costs by £2,500 and earn £5,600 in tariff payments this financial year; this represents a return on investment of 22% and benefit of £174,000 over 20 years. The Renewable Shop, established in 2011, was the result of a merger between well-established electrical and plumbing businesses that over the years had gained significant experience in the renewable energy sector. The owners of the company draw on their significant, time-served experience to provide complete turnkey renewable

solutions for existing homes and businesses, for extensions and for new build properties. The Renewable Shop also offers fully accredited plumbing, heating and electrical services, as well as complete utilities and building services packages for new build or extensive renovation projects. By being able to access an integrated range of services, customers of The Renewable Shop only need to deal with one company that can take care of everything needed to deliver their new heating or electricity generating system — from presenting

plans of the proposed scheme and assisting with planning applications to commissioning the new system and hand-over. Switching to renewable energy makes sound economic sense if you’re a homeowner but there are significant benefits for rural businesses, including holiday companies, guest houses, hotels, retailers and manufacturers. Qualifying businesses can receive tariff payments for 20 years if they install either a biomass boiler, ground source heat pump or solar PV system. Anyone interested in finding out how they can benefit from going ‘green’ can either call 01629 580658 or visit the company’s fully working showroom, which features solar photovoltaic panels, LED lighting, solar thermal, air source heat pump, ground source heat pump, hot water heat pump, biomass boilers (pellet and log gasification), thermal storage cylinders, underfloor heating and fan convertor radiators.

An enterprising Derbyshire village is bidding to create the first community owned pub in the Peak District. Bamford Community Society is about to launch The Anglers Rest Share Offer on 17th July. After nearly a year in the planning and consultations with residents at a series of public meetings, it is hoped that all the money pledged and more will be converted to shares, to raise the target sum needed to purchase the Anglers Rest for the village. Currently on the market, this is a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to create a communityowned asset in the heart of Bamford incorporating the pub, the Post Office, a café, accommodation and


shocked to hear the Post Office might be relocated outside the village,” said local resident Julia Darnell, “we work from home and rely on the PO service in the centre of the village. Having a café where I can meet friends for a cuppa, not to mention all the walkers and cyclists who pass through; this seems like Bamford’s best chance!” The village needs to raise £180,000 through its community share offer and over £115,000 has been pledged so far. The Community Share Offer is open to everyone and is available online at www.bamfordcoop. There will be another public meeting to update everyone on progress on 24th July at Bamford Institute.

One of Britain's biggest and most friendly Fringes, Buxton Festival Fringe (July 3-21), has launched its 2013 programme. With some 170 events, the Fringe, sponsored by the University of Derby Buxton, is as big as ever and looks forward to inviting artists and audiences alike to the beautiful spa town of Buxton. “Our reputation as the Friendly Fringe sees established perfomers returning and great new acts trying out new things,” said Fringe Chair, Stephanie Billen. “It's great to see the strength and diversity of the Buxton Festival Fringe with performers from Africa, Brazil and Europe as well as locals such as the Litton Poetry Festival featuring poet John Hegley. You can get a taster of what's on offer at our free event Fringe Sunday in the Pavilion Gardens on the afternoon of July 7.” This year's Fringe sees a strong Theatre entry as usual, with a couple of Shakespearean highlights; last year's Theatre awardwinners Smooth Faced Gentlemen return with an all-female Titus Andronicus, while Butterfly's Hamlet is in the atmospheric Poole's Cavern. In Comedy, previous winners Max and Ivan and Helen Arney appear alongside Morgan and West, Danny Pensive, and Daliso Chaponda. Nick Ward and NCO principals take a break from their appearance on the Buxton Festival to join

the Fringe, playing Mozart and Saint-Saens. Indeed there is music of every description, from classical to pop, with some show tunes and folk along the way. This year the Fringe is highlighting the many free events on offer, and for the first time they have been grouped together on the Fringe website http://www.buxtonfringe. There you can find many Visual Arts events, including workshops, Street Theatre, and a Food and Drink Festival. And if that isn't enough, there is Dance, Film and a number of lively events for families. Tickets are also already selling well for the Buxton Military Tattoo. The 2013 line-up can also be found on the website at: http://www.buxtonfringe. tml. The Fringe can also be found on Facebook, Twitter (@BuxtonFringe) and the Buxton Fringe blog, accessible from the Fringe website. The Fringe is hugely grateful to its sponsor the University plus supporters including The Osborne Group, High Peak Borough Council, The Old Hall Hotel and The Cavendish Shopping Arcade. Running alongside the Fringe is the acclaimed Buxton Festival, a celebration of opera, music and literature from the 5th to the 21st July. V i s i t http://www.buxtonfestival

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

Delightful Dovedale with its crystal clear water, stepping stones and intriguing rock formations is always enjoyable to walk, but add an elevated path through rolling fields, a miniature stately home and a wander along a terrace known as Paradise and I was on a high of happiness!It always makes me smile when I park up at the Stepping

Stones car park to see the mobile shop which looks to all intent and purpose like a permanent structure built of limestone. However, arrive early or depart at tea-time and you might find yourself stuck on the narrow road behind a tractor towing it. Look carefully and you will see that the limestone is actually man-made cladding but extremely realistic. The river level was low as I wandered up to the stepping stones which were standing high and proud above the water. Children were paddling and a little congregation of visitors were sitting around admiring the views and enjoying this popular Peak District hotspot which has attracted walkers and fishermen for centuries. Its fame was captured in the 17th century writings of Charles Cotton and Izaak Walton who together wrote The Compleat Angler. First published in 1653, it has been in continuous print for 360 years. The Twelve Apostles, Reynard’s Arch, Tissington Spires, Ilam Rock and the Dove Holes are just a few of the wonderful rock formations that line the route of the scenic riverside path beside the Dove, where you can amble along admiring banks of wild flowers, an impenetrable hillside of natural woodland as well as occasional ‘money trees’ being a phenomena of more recent times. Dippers can often be seen dashing up and down the river in a monochrome flash of flight, but on this walk I also saw a nest of

cute little goosander chicks almost ready to fledge and take to the water. After just over three miles of riverside ramble I arrived at the picture postcard pretty little Milldale where I sat in quiet contemplation to eat my egg sandwiches. The ducks there are pesky pilferers and you have to watch out for a sneaky beak appearing under your elbow in an

attempt to snatch your picnic. I would have shared my lunch but feeding egg to a bird didn’t somehow seem right! From Milldale my route was steeply uphill to Stanshope, ascending to elevated pasture where Belted Galloway cattle were grazing, with a scene down Hall Dale reminiscent of a Scottish Glen. From Stanshope I was heading for Ilam over a series of fields and stiles with far reaching views toward the magnificent Manifold Valley. The footpath led me down through Casterne where the majestic Hall suddenly appears like a miniature stately home on the hillside. This tucked away gem of a property looks like a Georgian dolls house, but actually has a history dating

back to Roman times when a villa is thought to have stood on this site. By AngloSaxon times the estate was owned by a nobleman with the wonderful name of Wulfric Spott who died around 1004. For more than 500 years Casterne has been and still is in the hands of the Hurt family and although a home, the house can be hired for weddings,

photo shoots and filming (it has appeared in an episode of Poirot and Jonathan Creek as well as being used as a film set in Far From the Madding Crowd and The Hound of the Baskervilles). I now wound my way back down to river level, although there was no water to be seen, as this is a stretch of the disappearing Manifold. The river would suddenly reappear again from boil holes in Ilam Country Park further on in my walk. After passing a quaint little lodge with its interesting plaque above the front door, I passed through a nearby stile and headed for Ilam Hall on a path which would take me to Paradise Walk and the ancient mosscovered Battle Stone.

There was a distinct smell of old garlic down by the river from a bank of rotting vegetation that only a few weeks ago was a harvest of wood garlic. When in full bloom it would have appeared like a covering of snowballs amongst the trees. There were several shrubs of flowering rhododendron, intriguingly happy in a landscape dominated by limestone. Soon I arrived at Ilam Hall which is one of the most picturesque settings in the whole of the Peaks. If at all possible, I time my visits to the opening hours of the tearoom so that I can savour a pot of their finest brew and a freshly baked scone whilst admiring the views over to Thorpe Cloud which appears like a tabletop miniature mountain in the distance. No visit to Ilam would be complete without popping to my favourite church to see the incredible Chantrey monument to David Pike Watts which takes centre stage in the battlemented extension. This chapel was designed to replicate the Gothic appearance of Ilam Hall which was rebuilt in the 1820s by Jesse Watts Russell on the site of a 16th century manor house, home to the Port family. He thought the area was a little reminiscent of Switzerland, hence his small estate village built in an alpine style. The return to the car park was along the path beneath Bunster Hill and behind the former Izaak Walton Hotel which is currently closed for business, a controversial victim of these tough economic times. My return to the car and end of approximately 8 miles of walking was just in time to purchase a scrumptious ice cream cornet before the little shop was hitched up and headed down the lane for the night. Not wanting to get stuck in an inevitable jam I rushed to my car to beat the building in a race to the gateway. Surreal or what? Sally Mosley

Toddlers, babies, preschoolers and their parents recently celebrated seven years of Twistin’ Tots classes, with cake and balloons. Twistin’ Tots classes were started in Belper in June 2006 by thenpregnant mum, Jacqui Davis, who thought she might run the classes for a couple of years to pass the time while her children were pre-schoolers. Seven years later classes are still going strong and have changed from one class in Belper to six classes in four locations, including Matlock, which has now been running for three years. Founder, Jacqui said, “Little did I think when I started my classes that they would still be going strong seven years later. There are even a few parents who are


still coming from those early days with siblings of the original children! We have diversified a bit since those early days and now offer one hour music sessions and two hour music and play sessions where children also get to play with toys for an hour while carers and parents make new friends

and chat over a cup of coffee. Plans are now afoot to look into franchising and from September, I am likely to be introducing a new arm of the business - ‘Twistin’ Tinies’ - for children aged under 18 months and their parents. Watch this space! I could do with a few more people running classes for

me, so if anyone out there fancies running their own business (where they can take their children with them!), then get in touch! “ The Twistin’ Tots Matlock class runs at the Imperial Rooms, Imperial Rd, Matlock every Wednesday in term time at 1011am; they are suitable from birth to pre-school. The fun classes help young children with speech and language development, social skills, co-ordination, co-operation and movement. They use simple actions that children can understand and a variety of props to assist children’s learning development and motor skills. You do not need to book for classes, you can just turn up. Further classes are held in Little Eaton, Ripley and Matlock. See website for details.

Admission: Adults - £2.00 (includes parking) Accompanied under 16's free Agricultural Way, off A6, Haddon Road DE45 1AQ

Stoney Middleton Heritage Centre Community Group has received a grant for £30,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a community based project. The project will tell the story of the village’s past, highlighting its wealth of heritage, intriguing folklore and legends. The project aims to collect and digitise pictures, documents, and audio recordings of the village elders, providing the collection through a single web portal, allowing on-line public access to the collection. It will further highlight its heritage via its village trails leading walkers around the village’s various

points of interest. From historic listed buildings including the “Roman Baths”, an octagonal “Toll House” and unique “Church”, to its industrial past dating back to the Romans which included mining, quarrying and boot making. Its amazing geology with stunning cliffs and popular caverns, to its intriguing folklore including a “Lovers Leap”, infamous highwayman “Black Harry” and the “Murder at The Moon Inn”, along with its contributions to its beleaguered neighbours of Eyam during the “Great Plague”. All this and more including a haunted pub and a famous chip shop will make these

trails very popular. These walks will be further enhanced by a mobile phone application and a DVD which will also be available on the website. Walkers will enjoy exploring the delightful backwaters of this quintessential Derbyshire village, discovering what makes Stoney Middleton a place of such individual charm and character. While in contrast, they will also enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside and outstanding views of the Peak District National Park. The walks are approximately one hour each or can be combined together, or with the newly formed Black Harry Trails.

Colin Hall. Project leader, comments: “This is fantastic news for the village. The HLF grant will enable the village to tell its story. Once overlooked and obscured by its industrial past, it will now show off and be remembered for its charm, wealth of heritage, legends and fascinating folklore. Further cementing an already close community, promoting a feeling of “pride of place” whilst helping to sustain its local businesses” – leaving a legacy it so rightly deserves. However we need help and would ask people to visit our website ( to see how they may be able to help.

The 2013 Buxton Well Dressing Festival will take place from Sunday 7th July to Monday 15th July. A large team of volunteers are putting together a range of events for the week. The Festival costs around £17,000 a year to run and would not take place without the support of local businesses such as Lafarge Tarmac and Nestle, Buxton Water. Also, grants from organisations including the Bingham Trust and the Mayoral Charities, fund raising throughout the year and the collections at the Wells and on Carnival Day help to cover these costs. Only collectors with Buxton Well Dressing buckets or boxes are licensed to collect on Carnival Day. The Carnival is the most important single fund raising day for the Well Dressing Festival. There is an opportunity to see the tradition of Well Dressing in progress in St John’s Church, Buxton where the three Wells are decorated between Thursday 4th July and Saturday 6th July. A large team of volunteers and also pupils from Buxton Community School will be hard at work covering the clay base with only natural materials such as flowers and leaves to create the designs. St. Ann’s Well is commemorating the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ The Market Place Well commemorates 60 years since the discovery of the structure of DNA. The Taylor Well will be dressed with designs by pupils from the Community School. The Wells will be on view from 7th to 15th July. On Sunday 7th July the Well Blessing Service will be held and all are welcome. The ceremony starts at St. Anne’s Church on Bath Road at 1.45pm and processes to the Market Place Well, The Taylor Well on Spring Gardens and then to St. Ann’s Well in the Crescent. The tradition of blessing the wells and giving thanks for a

clean, fresh supply of water is a long held one and an important part of the festival. After the blessing the 2013 Festival Queen, Personality Queen and retinue will be crowned by a special guest. The crowning ceremony takes place in St. John’s Church at 3pm and this is a free event. During Well Dressing week there are a range of events including the popular ‘Historical Presentation’ by Chris Simpson. Chris is a keen collector of local postcards, photographs and memorabilia which help to illustrate the history of Buxton and the area. The presentation is being held at St. Anne’s Parish Centre, Hardwick Square West, Buxton at 7.30pm. Ticket £4.00 on the door. Carnival Day is on the 13th July. For the third year, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are gracing the day with a fly past by one of their historical aircraft. This year it will be a Dakota, C-47 military transport aircraft. Under the lend lease programme large scale deliveries of C-47s were made to the UK, with nearly 2,000 Dakotas, as the

aircraft became known in RAF service, being delivered, the first entering service with the RAF in India in 1942. Dakotas served in every theatre of the war, most notably in Burma and also during the D-Day landings and the airborne assault on Arnhem in 1944. Its work was, perhaps, often unglamorous and ‘unsung’ but the C-47 Dakota and its crews played a crucial part in the final Allied victory of

World War Two. The Carnival procession starts at 2pm from Buxton Railway Station and is preceded by the Carnival Road Race organised by the Buxton Athletic Club. This year the route has been changed including a loop-up St John's Rd and down Macclesfield Rd once, along Burlington Rd, and then up St John's Rd to make a 4 mile race. The race will begin at 1.45pm from New Wye Street and will be started by the Buxton Wells Dressing Festival Queen. After the carnival there will be more entertainment in the Pavilion Gardens including the Duck Race, Parade of Queens, a display by local favourites, The Billerettes on the promenade and a concert by local rock bands on the band stand on the promenade from 5pm. On Sunday 14th July at 2.00pm at The Silverlands a football tournament will be held between 4 local teams playing for the Carnival Cup. A collection will be held to raise funds to support the Well Dressing Festival. For further details of the 2013 Well Dressing Festival is available on or from the souvenir programme that will be on sale around town.
