Polly’s List will be sponsoring the Little Hoops Loop and providing all the children who finish the race, with a free refreshment. Other local businesses assisting with sponsorship include

A charity fun run for children… The Hairy Hemet Relay Race launched last year with 83 teams running in a 4 leg relay race, each runner covering just over 2 miles. The event, which took place in Darley Park, was a huge success, raising funds for charity and a great family evening. So this year organisers, Derwent Runners, are aiming to make it even bigger and better. As well as the adult race, they are now hosting The Little Hoops Loop, a one mile run for children around Darley Abbey Meadow. The cost for entry is £1 and they hope that children will pay their entry using their own pocket money to help support other children. All monies raised will be given to the worthy charity The Rainbows Children’s Hospice.The Little Hoops Race will take place on Friday 15th June at 6.00pm and will be followed by the Hairy Helmet Relay, which begins at 7.00 pm. All contestants will meet at the Cricket Club in Darley Abbey. After the race, the organisers hope that families will stay and enjoy the evening, bring a picnic to the park, enjoy some of the real ales that will be available and a great family evening. All details of how to enter a relay team or the children’s race are available on the websites.

Cracking start to farm attraction’s The National Forest Adventure Farm is gearing up for a cracking start to the 2012 season with new attractions and some eggciting Easter activities. Says Tom Robinson, “Although we only opened less than a year ago, we are already investing in new attractions for 2012. For younger visitors we are building a new junior play area with challenges designed for children up to the age of 7. All visitors will find a challenge in our new crazy golf course with its fun obstacles.”

The new attractions will be open in time for the start of the Easter holidays on 31 March. Throughout the Easter holidays daily from 31 March to 15 April, visitors will be able to help with bottle feeding the lambs and seeing the new chicks which are hatching at this time. There is also a fun Easter trail around the farm with a tasty reward at the end. Children will also love getting stuck in to the Easter themed craft activities.

Highfields Happy Hens …so much more than a great day out for the Highfields is a Care Farming Initiative based in Etwall– it is a school for youngsters who are struggling at school (often excluded) – who need some space and a loving environment to sort themselves out – the shop, the tea room and the open farm, provide incredible life changing and teaching experiences. Highfields provides this experience to over 30 youngsters each week. It is this service for work with young people that saw Roger Hosking, who owns Highfields, receive a MBE in January.

Churches and individuals help Highfields in a very practical way by becoming Highfields agents. The agents sell Highfields produce at preferential rates to their friends, neighbours and congregations. This enables them to earn a little extra, and Highfields continue their work with young people. And of course, customers enjoy wellproduced, healthy food at fair prices!

The poultry farm operates a very successful egg selling agency package for individuals, schools, clubs, churches and other groups. They continually need more customers for their real free range eggs and other produce so that they can provide more employment and training for special needs young people and youngsters being excluded from Education.

To advertise, please call us on 01332 202210

There is the open farm – which is a low priced day out for all ages. It is a genuine open farm, with 60 acres to roam around. There are animals to feed, chicks, lambs and calves around most of the time. You can even collect your own eggs. During the holidays and each Saturday, there is a tractor and trailer running and for those looking for some fresh air and exercise, there is also a nature trail to explore. Highfields Happy Hens also offer totally unique school and group visits and provide a great venue for children’s birthday parties. For more information about how you can support Highfields Happy Hens. Visit www.highfieldshappyhens.co.uk or telephone Roger/Beryl 01283 735063 Highfields Farm, Heage Lane, Etwall, Derby. DE65 6LS.

our own new dance, and sculpt a marvellous creation to live in the forest long after the magic has faded.

Wild Rumpus and the Forestry Commission invite you and your family to step into The Spellbound Forest. Twisting paths through the forest tell the twisting tales of English Fairy Tales through theatrical performance, music, visual art and dance. From the youngest to the oldest member of your family, lose yourself in the enchanted world of fairy tales, where men can become birds, tears become rivers, and children whirl at the sylvan ball. The Spellbound Forest wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just tell tales though, we will create our own new English Fairy-tale, dance

Drawing on a wide range of art forms, The Spellbound Forest is bringing together artists and performers who are pushing the boundaries and developing truly breath taking work for families and children. Visual art, theatre, music, dance and performance poetry and prose will combine, drawing families along real pathways in the forest inspired by the narrative pathways in English fairy tales. The work will challenge the best writers, artists and organisations to be bold and create truly magical and fantastical works

adapting fairy tales and capturing the imagination of the audience.

KipMcGrath Education Since 2004 KipMcGrath Education Centres have provided professional tuition across Derby. Many pupils at some point in their schooling need additional support in English or Maths, and KipMcGrath provides comprehensive learning programmes which are tailored to each pupil’s educational needs.

Four centres now serve the Derby and Belper areas; run and staffed by fully qualified teachers who are CRB checked and have vast experience of successfully teaching children and young people. Derby South is now Ofsted registered; enabling parents to use working tax credits towards the cost of tuition.

Catering for young children who are just learning to read, through to senior students who are preparing for exams, KipMcGrath equips pupils with the knowledge, understanding and confidence they need to in order to succeed.

“Kip McGrath supported my child through a tough time in school. He is now happy and able to join in with his classmates and is making good progress.”

Great food, great staff, great offer an array of platters that are created using the delicious produce within the counters, from anti pasti platters to traditional ploughmans, pates with rustic breads, cheeseboards with chutneys and fruit, incredible soups served with their wonderful breads. Having opened their doors nearly 8 months ago to their second store, it’s easy to see why customers queue happily for a table in this fabulous establishment that has quickly gained a reputation as the place to be.

Ah yes..bread and the real food campaign that has been at the heart of Jack Rabbits since it opened its doors 3 years ago, supporting independent suppliers in the immediate vicinity… The bread is baked at the Loaf in Crich, using traditional methods and collected each morning. The hundreds of pints of Using fresh ingredients from across the milk consumed by coffee loving food hall, all the dishes on their mouth customers are supplied by Duffield watering menu are prepared fresh at the Dairy, along with their cream and time of ordering, and therefore any “Duffield Dollop” a luxury clotted cream, dietary requirements are easily met. They all from the herds that graze the fields on

the outskirts of Duffield. The eggs are from a farm in Muggington and the wide range of meats used across the menus in both shops are free range and supplied by Barry Fitch, farmer and butcher in Little Eaton. Even the handmade giant chocolate buttons lay their claim to Barry Colenso of Holbrook. Their very real approach to food means that they simply turn good quality ingredients into fantastic simple dishes, perfect for any time of the day! The breakfast menu draws customers through the doors in the crowds, and it is usual to have to wait a few minutes to get a table, but trust me, it’s worth the wait! Free range bacon, softly scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, peppered mackerel, roasted vine tomatoes, the breakfast menu is a delight.

The beauty of Jack Rabbits is not just the setting, the casual ambience, the relaxed atmosphere, but they seem to strike the right balance and they seem to have struck a chord with their customer base which is ever growing, with people returning time over to indulge in both the grocery store and dining hall.
