Eat In The Park and

dance and play...

Words: Paul Chapman

Images: Eat in the Park scan to buy tickets

When ‘Dancing Queen’ plays, ‘I bet you look good on the dance floor’, but ‘Could it be magic’ I hear you ask? Well ABBA (by Revival), The Artic Monkeyz and Take That (by Rule the World) are just three of the fabulous tribute acts that with be playing in Queen’s Park on the 5 and 6 August this summer!

‘Eat In the Park’ is a fantastic new festival headed for Chesterfield and I caught up with Jake, one of the organisers at Barca in Casa… very nice coffee I have to say.

Jake and business partner George are both Buxton lads and are driving the festival, and it’s not their first rodeo, they have organised the event for the past two years in Buxton. “We work for event companies and in lockdown talked about wanting to fulfil a dream, running our own festival in our hometown,” says Jake.

“Two successful years later and we want to bring the same excitement to a different area of Derbyshire - Chesterfield and Queens Park is the ideal space so that’s exactly what we’ve done.”

The festival takes place over Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August 2023 and the main stage hosts six artists each day, some of the country’s best tribute acts will bring tunes we all know and love. Plus, the Buxton Brewery stage will have five acts each day, local bands such as Lunarca who you may remember meeting in our Autumn 2022 edition.

Alongside the music, the festival will have entertainment for the kids, face painting, bubble artists, Disney performers, children’s entertainers, and so much more...this event really is for the whole family! Chesterfield FC will be running the multi-sports area and once you’re in the festival there are no additional charges for kids’ activities.

No gathering of this size would be complete without a drink and some food! Eat in the Park prides itself on a range

of street food vendors who will be on hand dishing up amazing food from every corner of the globe, “You HAVE to try The Thai Food Van, it is insane!” adds Jake. “We’re also keen to ensure our drinks are at pub prices to help keep things more affordable.”

The tribute acts on Saturday will be performing the hits from, Killers (Brightside Killers), Take That (Rule the World), Sam Fender (Sam Offender), plus Purple Cloud (Of Funk), Kal’s Kats, Rose Amongst Thorns and Howling Rhythm. Sunday sees Abba (by Revival), Arctic Monkeys, Kazabian, Frozen and Friends, and The Jukes of Winchester. Local bands already lined up for the Buxton Brewery stage include, Mimosa, Lunarca, Leftychris, Ami Sharpe, Loxleigh and The Mighty Traitors, watch for more names being added...

“We are so excited to see the response from the Chesterfield audience. We’re partnering with local charities and Ashgate Hospisecare and Brightstart are two of the four who will be benefiting from the event by raising funds throughout the festival,” says Jake.

Tickets for the festival are available now. Early Bird numbers are limited, and day tickets are priced at £22.75 for adults, £10.75 for 6 to 17 years and under fives go free. If you fancy both days, prices are £41.75 and £16.75 respectively (all subject to a booking fee). Carers go free with a full paying adult/child and payment plans are available on some ticket Options. What is great is that you can come and go as you like, so you can enjoy the day with the kids, take them home to the grandparents and go back and enjoy the evening headliners.

Do you love to shop… to browse and interact with knowledgeable, passionate people… business owners who source their own products, know their customers, and can help advise and suggest, with perhaps some banter thrown in for good measure?

If you were on holiday and someone pointed out a place like that, or trip advisor recommended, you’d stick it on your holiday list, look at your maps and go out for a day to find it!

Now, imagine you have that on your doorstep… a place where there’s fruit and veg brought fresh that morning (Ibbotsons), neatly displayed very early (except Wednesday and Sunday), not wrapped in plastic, where you can choose the fruit and veg you want, one parsnip, one carrot and one pear if that’s what you want, pay on card and a bit of social interaction… good for our mental health. A gin shop (Ginspired) with a wide range of specialist flavoured gins, spirits, and real ales, from across the country, displayed with love and with an expert guide to help you chose. A cheese shop (Cheese factor) with over 130 different varieties, specialist, and unusual flavours, served by people who know what they are doing, where you can also buy olives, pastries, oat cakes, local beers, wines, an emporium of different flavours… where, if you ask, you can sample before you buy (within reason I'm sure Simon would add!). Hand pick a collection of sweet treats for the kids (Aunty Dots Sweets), Plants and flowers (Thanks a Bunch), a book stall specialising in history and local titles (Brockwell Books), a zero waste shop where you can refill your washing up bottle, buy handmade soaps etc (Steph's Sustainable Stuff), be a little more environmentally conscious... and this is just a handful of the businesses and stall holders. You’d probably make a special trip to this place, have a browse, stop for a drink and some breakfast, and enjoy the quaint and olde English feel of the place.

Well, this is what we have under our noses!

Then there is the Thursday Flea market, packed every week, a specialist Artisan Market, a hugely popular Record Fair (the largest outdoor record fair in the UK), and a Vegan Market each month, each appealing to a different audience and pulling people into the town centre to further support the independent retailers.

It’s got a long history our market, started in 1165 and granted a Royal Charter in 1204 by King John, moving from its original site near St Mary’s Church in 1220 across to the Market Place and it’s been evolving ever since. The Market Hall was built in 1857 and refurbished in 2012 at a cost of £4.2M. It’s this history and progression that gives us the prestigious status as a Derbyshire Market Town, and this bustling market brings in tourists, boosts the local economy and makes our town a bit more interesting than the others!

Ok, so perhaps not everything is perfect, maybe the market hall could feel a bit funkier, a bit more cosmopolitan, dare I say it, a bit more European but it’s got a lot going for it, the more we use it the more people get to know about it and more people will come… someone should put it on Tik Tok that will do the trick!

When the ‘Revitalising the Heart of Chesterfield’ project delivers it’s revamp of the outdoor market and New Square, perhaps it will make a real difference and create the vibrant outdoor space we could have, an interesting option… you’ll need to watch this space on this one.

I know time is precious and it’s easy to shop online but I really do encourage you to spend some of your time and your money in our town centre and market and be positive about what we have.

Your money and your positive attitude can make a real difference.

Over to you.

Elliott and Heath Opticians Bring Night Lenses Innovation to Chesterfield

The #nightlenses revolution has arrived in Chesterfield as optician Beth Ralph, the new owner of Elliott & Heath Opticians on Newbold Road, has become the first local fitter of Night Lenses, an incredible eye innovation for shortsighted patients.

Night lenses correct the patient’s vision while they sleep, giving them perfect 20/20 sight during the day without the need for glasses, day lenses or laser eye surgery. This incredible eyecare innovation is growing fast in the UK as patients can finally ditch those specs or day lenses without resorting to laser eye surgery.

So how do they work? Simply pop them on the eye before sleep and they do their magic temporarily reshaping the cornea – the front window of the eye. This allows the light to be redirected to the right focal point at the back of the eye giving clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

Are there any other benefits? With significant increase in myopia known as short sight in children, some studies show night lenses may also have the effect of slowing progression of the disease. Myopia is not just a vision problem. It leads to increased risks of cataracts, glaucoma and detached retinas as the eye grows too long stretching the structures within the eye. The world health organisation has reported significant increase in myopia world wide due to screen use.

Beth Ralph, Optician and owner of Elliott & Heath Opticians says, "Elliott & Heath have been connecting the residents of Chesterfield with eyecare innovations since 1964, so it made sense for us, as the new custodians of this great local establishment, to continue in that tradition. Night lenses are innovative, on-trend and a gamechanger for short-sighted patients who are fed up with glasses and day lenses, but who don’t want to resort to laser eye surgery. www.nightlenses.com is a great advice site for anyone wanting to find out more about them. As an optician, Night Lenses are one of the most exciting and rewarding things I do.

"The purchase of a topographer not only means that we can bring the #nightlenses revolution to Chesterfield, but it also means that we can deliver a dry eye clinic for those who suffer from this increasingly common ailment. In addition to this, we’re keen to work in collaboration with other local opticians to help raise awareness of the UK myopia epidemic that is affecting the children of Chesterfield. Educating parents about myopia and myopia control at first diagnosis is vital for helping our children to have better sight and better lives. If you have a child with short-sight and want to find out more about myopia, please ask your optician for a MyopiaChat, they’ll be delighted to give you one."

On my bookcase in the studio was the flyer above. It was written by John Hirst, one of the founder members of Brampton Brewery and for a while I've been thinking of contacting John to see if we could reprint it. Whilst cycling home through Somersall Park I bumped into John (not literally) and stopped to chat.

The following pages contain v2 of 'Lost Pubs of Brampton', now just 'Pubs of Brampton' it takes a look at the Brampton Mile and briefly covers the history of each of the establishments along Chatsworth Road.

For those of you that know little of the Brampton Mile it will be an eye opener, for those who remember some of the pubs listed, a trip down memory lane.

A massive thanks go out to John for allowing us to print the list, for updating it and amending the map (shown over the page).

Please feel free to find a table in a local pub, get a drink and take a read.

Compensation paid was £1,088 to the brewery and £120 compensation to the landlord. The pub adjoined the Griffin, with both pubs belonging to the same brewery it's probable that, after closure, it was incorporated into one.

6. Bold Rodney (Wheatbridge Road)

Although the exact closure date is not known, it was purchased in October that year by Wheeler Electrical Supplies and opened as an electrical showroom in March 1958. The building was originally demolished for the erection of a filling station, the site is now occupied by a retail shopping complex.

9. Alma Inn (Chatsworth Road)

10. Grouse Inn (Chatsworth Road)

A beerhouse in 1862, when the landlord was also a roof slater. By 1869 a full licence had been granted. Around this date the pub was leased to the Brampton Brewery, but was eventually bought by Wm Stones brewery of Sheffield. Major alterations took place in 1924.

The Pubs of Brampton

of New Inn. The pub had several periods of closure, before it was bought by Everards brewery of Leicester giving the new Brampton Brewery their second pub under the ‘Project William’ scheme, which gave micro-breweries a chance to have their own tied house. After an extensive re-fit the pub re-opened in December 2010 as the Tramway Tavern.

12. Barrel Inn (Chatsworth Road)

Was in existence in 1822 when the area was known as Welshpool. Acquired by Brampton Brewery in 1899 when it was exchanged with its original owners, Strettons Derby Brewery Ltd, for a Brampton Brewery pub at Cotmanhay. Rebuilt in 1915 together with the adjoining shop. Examples of the brewery trade mark can be seen in the windows and on a fireplace. A painting of the original pub can be seen on the glass of an internal window.

13. Red Lion (Chatsworth Road)

In the middle 1800’s Samuel Gregory was landlord, for around 30 years. He was sole agent in the area for Reid & Co’s London Porter. Plans for rebuilding were approved in 1920 when it belonged to Wm Stones Ltd. After a long period of closure, the pub reopened as the Crafty Dog, in March 2018.

14. Anchor Inn (Factory Street)

Bought by the Chesterfield Brewery Co in 1869, for £1,200. Plans were passed to rebuild the pub in 1920. Became a Mansfield Brewery house in 1935, when they bought out Chesterfield Brewery.


Hat & Feathers (Factory Street)

In 1889 was leased to Wm Stones Ltd, who were to become its owners. The pub was referred under the Compensation Act, when it was reported that ‘the pub was very small and badly lit, requiring a lamp to be burned for most of the day’. The pub was ordered to close on 22nd December 1919. The building was bought and used by Plowright Brothers, eventually being demolished for inclusion into a factory extension.


Castle Inn (Beaver Place)

Bought by Brampton Brewery in 1897, with 3 adjoining cottages. Enlarged into two of the cottages in 1914, the remaining one being demolished. In March 1938 its licence renewal was objected to on the grounds that the pub was too large for the community it served. Trade was 2.5 barrels a week (720 pints); the licensee also worked at a local colliery. It was overshadowed by Plowright Brothers 'erecting shop', which made its

23 24 25 26 25 27
Page 20 www.chesterfieldlocal.com Local History

four licensed rooms very dark. The licence was renewed on condition that further improvements were carried out. A Full licence was granted in 1951. The pub closed in the early 1960’s and was demolished together with the rest of Beaver Place, the site becoming part of Robinsons works.

17. Brampton Mile (Chatsworth Road)

Opened October 1993, having been converted from a clothes shop. It closed in 2014, re-opening as a ‘home brew’ shop.

18. Three Horse Shoes (Chatsworth Road)

Can be traced back to 1842 when Joseph Watts was licensee and also a blacksmith, working behind the pub. The beerhouse licence was transferred to newly erected premises in September 1889. The Watts family remained in the pub until the turn of the century. A full licence was granted in 1961, when Samuel Beresford was licensee. He was a long serving tenant, having been landlord 28 years when he died in 1962. The pub sold Home Brewery mild under a trading agreement from the time of Scarsdale’s take over by Whitbread’s in 1958. Another long serving landlord was Fred Tipping who ran the pub from 1962, until his retirement in 1985. A great character who could often

be found accompanying the pub pianist on the drums. Unfortunately he died after only five months of retirement. The pub was sold as part of a bulk sale to Tom Cobleigh, who closed the pub for a complete refit, reopening as the Brampton Ale House. The pub was later sold to Thwaites Brewery of Blackburn, and later leased to the Barlow Brewery, who closed the pub in 2020, during the Covid outbreak. The pub was scheduled for demolition as part of the now postponed re-development of the old Robinsons works, it re-opened late 2021.

19. Prince of Wales (Old Road)

Rebuilt 1923 when it belonged to the Brampton Brewery. Its full licence was granted in 1949. The pub closed in 2012, re-opening in May 2013 as the Maison Mes Amis restaurant.

20. Rose & Crown (Old Road)

Bought by John Richdale’s brewery of Sheffield in May 1878 for the sum of £1600. Richdale’s were taken over by Hammonds in 1956, who in turn became part of the Bass Charrington group. The pub was re-built around 1940, at a cost of £3,500, the new building being behind the original, which stood where the car park is now located.

After a chequered history of closures and licensee changes it was bought by Everards brewery of Leicester giving the new Brampton Brewery their first pub, under the ‘Project William’ scheme, which gave micro-breweries a chance to have their own tied house. After an extensive re-fit, the pub re-opened late November 2009.

23. Peacock Inn (Chatsworth Road)

Applications to convert to full licence were made as early as 1869, when Francis Elliott was landlord. It was eventually granted the licence in 1954. Sold Stones bitter and Home Brewery mild under a trading agreement, after Scarsdale Brewery were taken over by Whitbread in 1958. Sold to the Tom Cobleigh pub chain in the 1990’s, who later sold off to a Pub Co.

24. Star Inn (Chatsworth Road)

Its full licence was granted in 1949. In 1962 alterations were approved to make two rooms and move the licensees accommodation upstairs. Bought from Whitbread brewery by long serving licensee Brian Dickenson, who retired in 1992 after 31 years in the pub. Still a free house.

25. Pheasant (New) (Chatsworth Road)

21. Britannia (Old) (Old Hall Road)

This pub can be traced back to 1831. In 1844 Richard Jones was owner and licensee. He was followed by John Lenthall who was licensee for 36 years. During this time he built a running track and a bowling green on adjoining ground. Many major events were held on the track. In 1904 the pub was bought by Wm Stones Ltd for £7,100 from the estate of the late James Hanes, brewer of Sheffield, who had died in 1899. Major alterations were carried out in 1906. Another long tenancy began in 1953 when John Cocking and his wife took over. When he died in November 1986 his wife Edie continued to run the pub until her retirement in July 1987. The pub was then run by ex. boxer Peter Bates who had previously kept the Red Lion on Vicar Lane for many years.

22. Victoria (Victoria Street West)

Unusual for Chesterfield the Victoria was owned by Ind Coope of Burton-on-Trent. Alterations were approved in 1943, which included incorporating ‘inside’ toilets. Its full licence was granted in 1959. Selling Tetley’s for many years, was sold to Wards brewery of Sheffield around 1990, and became part of the Pubmaster chain when Wards eventually closed. Long serving licensee Vernon Greaves kept the pub from 1957 to 1973.

Bought in 1873 by the Brampton Brewery, together with 5 adjoining cottages, for £405. A full licence was granted in 1951. The first of two pubs called Pheasant situated close to each other, both pubs belonging to the Brampton Brewery. To prevent confusion, this pub was known as the 'Bottom Pheasant' or 'Gardeners Arms'. The other, the Old Pheasant, was later re-built and renamed the Terminus Hotel. The pub closed and was bought by the Borough Council in 1969 to be demolished together with the terraced row in which it stood, for road improvements. The site is now a car park on the junction of Chatsworth and Storrs Road.

26. Terminus Hotel (Chatsworth Road)

Originally called the Old Pheasant, before being rebuilt in 1906 and renamed the Terminus Hotel. In 1903 land opposite the pub was purchased for use as a bowling green, which remains today. The pub eventually became a John Smiths house, which closed late 2000. Attempts to save the building failed and it was demolished in June 2002, for the construction of flats.

27. Royal Oak (Brookside)

This pub once stood on the Baslow road between what is now Brookside Glen and Brookside Bar. It was in existence in 1828, then called the Appletree Inn. By 1831 its name had changed to Royal Oak. The last record of the pub is in a Trade Directory of 1852. Unconfirmed reports say that the building still existed in to the 1950’s, before being demolished for the erection of the new housing.

The following pubs are not shown on the map as their exact locations are unknown. Some may be temporary name changes or have not been traced as they disappeared long ago.

Miners Arms (Lower Brampton)

The position of this pub is not known, however it appears to have been in the Factory Street area. The pub closed in 1871 when its licence was not renewed. There had been a Coal Miners Arms at Welshpool in 1822, which changed its name to Miners Arms by 1828; and Mallet & Tool by 1829, only to change back to Coal Miners by 1833. Although this pub at one time had a full licence, it must have been removed at some point, for it to continue as a beerhouse (i.e. to sell beer only).

Hammer & Pincers: Licence refused in 1869.

Hare & Hounds: The location of this pub is not known, the address is quoted as Brampton. However, its licence was refused in September 1869, when the owner was the Brampton Brewery Co.

Pig of Lead: Recorded 1864 only, Samuel Lindley was the licensee.

Oddfellows Rest: Thomas Vincent, licensee was charged by the Police in April 1868 (owners G & J Hayes). The pub did not appear in licensing records the following year.

Russell Arms: Licence refused in 1869, Dorothy Hudson was licensee. A further application in 1870 was also rejected.

Sun Inn: Licence refused in 1870 to landlord John Scott, but may have been later reinstated, as a newspaper report of 1874 stated that its landlady was a Mrs Proctor.

Travellers Rest: Advertised in July 1869 – To let Travellers Rest beerhouse, Brampton, apply J Turner, Auctioneer.

NOTE: Af anyone has any old images of the pubs mentioned John and I would love to see them. If you do please get in touch either via phone or email as below.

The Star Inn

Start your mile in style!

Words: Simon Paterson

Images: Spire Inns

Having been a Brampton resident for a while now, I thought it was high-time that I visited the newly refurbished Star Inn on Chatsworth Road.

As you approach the pub it's clear to see the time and work that the new team (Jason and Mone - Spire Inns) have invested in the place. A traditional look with a sign outside that reminds me of my younger days 'Start your mile in style.'

Many a Saturday night was spent attempting the Brampton Mile, but I do not recall ever finishing it, fancy that!

Entering the pub, I was greeted with a warm smile by a member of the team and a fresh, familiar decor. Whether it's a rural countryside inn or a newly refurbished bar, a great pub should feel like a... well... a pub! Woody, welcoming, warm and muted in its decor with its original features standing front and centre. The Star Inn is all of this and so much more.

Eager to know more about the new Star Inn I conversed/grilled two of the team members on duty that evening (Mone and Molly) over a pint of Theakston's Best.

Molly is a local lass who has been working at the pub since it reopened last summer. I asked her what she likes best about working at the Star. "I love it here because we have such a good laugh, all the locals are so lovely and it's just a great place to work. I've been working here for quite a while now and can't see that changing anytime soon."

Mone has worked and ran more pubs than I've had pints, she added. "We have an older clientele here, it's a local pub for local people, which sounds a bit cliché, but it is. If you are looking for a relaxing evening and a quiet drink, you should give us a try. Our SMART Quiz nights start on Wednesday 22 February which is something a bit different and modern, and we have some great live acts lined up including singer song writer Lexi Whiteside.

"Jason (Spire Inns) does a great karaoke on a Friday night," says Molly.

Page 26 www.chesterfieldlocal.com Business Intro

The Star Inn are very open to community groups getting in touch should they need a base for meetings and regular events. If anyone wants to start a beer and board games night you can count me in! "We used to have a darts and dominoes team, so if anyone wants to start anything up then pop in and we will do our best to support and promote it," smiles Mone.

I moved on to the most important question of all. What drinks do you have on offer? "We have a variety of drinks including Carling, Beaver Town Neck Oil, Birra Moretti, John Smiths and two continuous ales on, usually a blonde and an amber," says Molly.

For the sports fans amongst us, the Star has several screens inside showing Sky Sports and BT Sports, with all the major sporting events on throughout the calendar year.

For the darts enthusiasts the pub has a brand-new Blade 6 dart board on the wall with ample space to throw a few.

I saved the big question till last. Why do you think people, old and new to the area should come and give the new look Star Inn a try? "Because it's warm and friendly with a nice atmosphere. We are dog friendly which it has never been before and best of all you get to spend time with our wonderful, local team," beams Mone. Well, you can't argue with that. I for one will be back soon and if you are lucky, I may treat you to my best Michael Bublé on the Karaoke!

Le Petit Oiseau (The

Little Bird)

A local start-up business selling handmade bespoke dolls to be enjoyed for years to come.

Words: Paul Chapman

Images: Le Petit Oiseau

On reaching retirement, some people decide to chill out, some seem to adopt the grandkids(!), some take the opportunity to indulge themselves in a hobby. Mary Senneck lives in Walton and loves to sew; she hand-makes fabulous rabbits, foxes, and deer Dolls. No two are the same and each one wears a bespoke outfit, they can be ordered to your requirements and come boxed with a pillow and coverlet, starting life with their new owner very comfortably.

"I've loved to sew all my life although my career as a teacher of IT and maths meant it was always a pastime until I retired. I've worked as a bespoke dress maker, specialising in stage and theatre costumes since 2013," explains Mary. "All was going well until COVID which meant the face-to-face business of personal fittings became impossible.

"Then, around Christmas time 2022, I started making the doll characters for family and friends

Page 28 www.chesterfieldlocal.com Business Intro

and word spread. I took some orders and I seem to have been bringing dolls to life at my sewing machine ever since!"

Mary moved to Chesterfield over 11 years ago, originally from Sheffield she moved to Surrey after her marriage and taught there until early retirement presented the opportunity of relocating to Chesterfield which she now loves and calls home. "I love the hills, the greenery and countryside."

It's hard to pinpoint the style of the little characters, we both used the words traditional, perhaps an old-fashioned style. The dolls are made from patterns supplied by Studio Seren and then Mary creates individual outfits for each one, creating a doll with a unique Personality. They remind me of 'Miffy' the fictional rabbit.

"It's a lovely thing to do," says Mary. "It gives me a chance to use up leftover materials from my sewing offcuts, a sustainable way to create new things. I use safety eyes and fire regulation approved stuffing. As they have small parts, they are perhaps not suitable for very small children but if requested I can make a doll adapted for younger children."

Mary describes her work as 'dressmaking for theatre' but on a much smaller scale. Right now, Mary is building up a stock of dolls to enable her to open an ETSY shop and her website, lepetitoiseau.co.uk, is in progress. Her dolls are priced at a very reasonable £35 and you can order additional outfits.

"I've always had a creative streak, and this lends itself to what I do. I haven't given up the bespoke dressmaking and stage costume-making so if people need outfits for proms, weddings, dance competitions, festivals or that special outfit I am still taking orders.

It seems Mary is enjoying her retirement and I wish her every success with the new venture. Check out the images and keep a look out for the Etsy shop and website below very soon… and be sure to say you saw her in S40 Local. www.lepetitoiseau.co.uk

Brockwell Books of Chesterfield

New to the Market Hall

Words: Ed Fordham

We must start with a thank you - the transition from outdoor market stall to indoor Shop Unit has not been easy but the support and encouragement from local shoppers has been just stunning. If you did a list of all of the commercial outlets that any self-respecting town should have, it is now clear to me that a second-hand Bookshop is on the list. A second-hand bookshop standing alongside with a Post Office, Butchers, Pub, Pet Food Store and a decent chippy. Chesterfield has many of these, but now can boast that it has once again a second-hand bookshop.

What does this actually mean? It tells visitors to the town that we value learning, reading, literature and the arts. It means we can be a place that values poetry, prose, research and the sheer erudite craft of authors and editors. It means that the skip or the bonfire need never again be the excuse of any probate estate.

Crucially, it means you have somewhere warm, reassuring and quirky to browse away a peaceful 2, 15 or 30 minutes perusing our shelves stuffed with books you didn’t know existed and didn’t realise you might want. Indeed, at Brockwell Books we pride ourselves on only stocking things that you really don’t need.

Everything we sell could be deemed unnecessarythe obscure or eccentric titles, the antiquarian book now a curio, the outdated manual for typewriters and much and many more... but that is the whole point. All of our lives are richer for peripheral knowledge and it is a cause we pride ourselves in championing. And we believe Chesterfield deserves a second-hand bookshop.

On that note we are also a place that seeks to be a part of the wider story of our town. We display a Paper Star as we are one of the many independent traders that Chesterfield showcases. We display a rainbow flag because we want everyone to know they are recognised, loved and welcomed in our shop and we have a Ukrainian flag to show our commitment to peace and justice.

We have an ‘On This Day’ clipboard on which we capture obscure but fun facts of when we are open, we pepper the bookshelves with paper ephemera, Dema Glass and Pearson’s Pottery and we also have an unlikely portfolio of coins for sale. In this regard we specialise in ancient Roman coins because that is my personal passion and previously my own collecting hobby.

There are other factors to the shop - but for nowwe are proud and happy to say thank you. If you haven’t found us yet, wander into town, the Market Hall is the huge and splendid 1857 municipal hall in the Market Square - and we are tucked down by the two excellent butchers: W Hodkin and R.B.Elliott & Son.

We seek to be open on the Town’s Market Days: Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.

Any failings are almost certainly our own, and as a micro-business we simply can’t do all the things we need to do - so as we grow and evolve please bear with us. It’s been fun for the first six years and our transition from Open Air Market stall to indoor shop unit is a testament to your support, loyalty and custom. Here is to the future - and the next chapter of our story.

With all best wishes, Ed Fordham, Proprietor.

Novelisations and Discussions: More Recommendations and Online Reading Groups

Words: Jack Jerram

Page 34

This month I'm looking at 'Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade', 'Fable: The Balverine Order' and 'Alan Wake', all novels that spam the media platform of both novel and video game.

My last two articles talked about the benefits of video game narratives such as NieR: Automata ‘Long Story Short’ or those inspired by them like Ready Player One. The books and novels might inspire those who play games to read, to explore their curiosity, to further understand the games and the novels that came first, or vice versa! I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey so far!

However, I recognise that just two novels might not be enough, so I’ve written a brief intro into the Assassin's Creed and Fable series, and Alan Wake.

Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade is set in the Middle Ages in Jerusalem as assassin Altair embarks on a formidable mission – one that takes him throughout the Holy land and shows him the true meaning of the Assassin’s Creed. To demonstrate his commitment, Altair must defeat nine deadly enemies, including Templar leader, Robert de Sable.

This novel is the first in the series; the reader's introduction to the game’s universe, offering a science fiction journey through historical context about the Crusades of Jerusalem where religious wars occurred between Christians and Muslims. The subsequent novels take place all over the world, following different assassins as they combat similar threats. I’d give it an 8/10 and recommend this to any fan of science-fiction due to its use of history as a backdrop.

Fable: The Balverine Order takes place in the fantastical realm of Albion. The city is full of riches and Poverty. Magic works but industry and science are coming. The story revolves around two friends – the privileged Thomas and his loyal servant, James as they set out for the East in search of a legendary beast: the deadly, rarely seen Balverine. This is the first in the series, however, unlike Assassin's Creed which retells the stories of the games in chronological order this is an original story taking place in the Fable universe. The novel is a classic high fantasy story about slaying a mythical beast to save the city, yet its inclusion of science and an industrial revolution makes the world feel realistic as it parallels our world’s own battle with nature and industrial advancement. I’d also give this one an 8/10 and the subsequent sequels' fantasy world that makes the reader question the ramifications of environmental exploitation.

Alan Wake follows the best-selling crime/horror novelist Alan Wake as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his wife’s disappearance during a vacation in the small fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington, all whilst experiencing events from the plot of his latest novel, (which he cannot remember writing), coming to life…

This novel is a dark psychological horror like the stories Alan Wake writes himself. It thrives on the unexpected and mystery behind why this is happening. I’d rate this a 9/10, higher than the other as the mystery will leave you on edge; the atmosphere makes it an exciting read.

Happy reading and once again, thank you for taking the time to read these articles and I hope you can share your opinions with me! I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Online Reading Group

Boys Bottle Up

“Boys Bottle Up” is all about spreading awareness for young men’s mental health – sometimes overlooked amongst other mental health issues, and raising some money for charity along the way. One in four young men who die take their own life: a shocking but true statistic.

However, you can do something about it by buying one of our key chains and following our Instagram. Helping spread awareness of the world of selfhelp available.

You don’t even need to buy a key chain: just by talking to your friends or your sons, you can help. “Are you ok?”

“Do you need help?” Just by asking questions as simple as these you can help young men you know share their feelings. Be part of a movement that will bring good to the world.

“Boys Bottle Up” is part of the Young Enterprise scheme, an international business-based project, co-ordinated at Brookfield by Maths and Economics teacher, Miss New.

As well as raising awareness of this critical issue, a significant percentage of the group’s profits will be donated to charities working to help young men with their mental health.

Managing Director Henry HolmesSykes said: “We will be selling small keyrings for any donation of £1 plus. We “rocked and rolled” at the Brookfield school production of Grease – the Musical in February. We did great business at the trade fair in the town centre later that week.”

Please look out for further events at which you will be able to support this crucial campaign.

Words: Zac Leaning

Meet the team

Our small but perfectly S40 team at Brookfield this year comprises; Zac Leaning and Sky Louise Randall, both in Y12 – but we’re also hoping to recruit a photographer from the new A-level Photography group. Sky’s writing echoes her skills in three “essay-based” qualifications: a Diploma in Criminology and A-levels in Psychology and History. She plans to go on to uni and then... her future remains excitingly open.

Zac – who will keep up us updated on his other cocurricular pursuit, Boys Bottle Up – is in his second term of A-levels in Physics, Maths and Product Design (as well as being Marketing Director, he makes the key rings sold by his YE group). He is also completing an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) and plans to develop one of his other interests – flying – into a career as a pilot. He is offering his services to S40 Local this year as “It seems like fun. I’m a regular reader and am looking forward to contributing to this year’s editions.”

WPPG (The Wheatbridge Patient Participation Group)

The WPPG is a group of patients who have come together to provide a forum for the views of all the patients at the Wheatbridge surgery. Our aim is to assist the medical teams to deliver a first-class service; and to foster improved communication between practice and patients.

Whilst we do not become directly involved in individual medical care, we help improve surgery facilities. We have already assisted the practice to obtain a greatly improved health provision.

We would now like to take the group forward –becoming more autonomous, and having an even greater impact upon patient care. To do this we need more ideas for improvement from patients. We would also like to extend our committee to include patients with a range of different skills such as organising events and sub-groups, secretarial, book-keeping, and design and printing.

Our quarterly meetings are informal, and discussion is wide ranging; and we would love to hear from more Wheatbridge patients. If you have any ideas for improvement, and would like to help in the evolution of the group, please contact us via the website.



The next WPPG Group Meeting at Wheatbridge Surgery is on Tuesday, 18 April 2023 @ 12 noon. All patients welcome.

Highfield Bowls Club

Did you know there is a crown green bowls club at the back of The Highfield Pub on Newbold Road?

We wouldn’t be surprised if you said no, even people who have lived in Newbold all their lives might not be aware of it, even though it’s been there over a hundred years.

The club is looking for new members and is open to everyone; men, women and youngsters of all abilities and we would welcome new members with no previous bowls experience.

All you really need to get started is a pair of flat shoes, like trainers or pumps – The club can provide everything else, bowls, jacks, and some tuition and when you get more proficient and want to buy some bowls of your own then your fellow club members will be on hand to offer advice on what to buy. There are lots of decent second-hand bowls on the market at very reasonable prices. Membership is £55 for the year (reduced for Youngsters) and the bowls season runs from March to the end of September.

For anyone interested in competitive bowls the club has several teams in local leagues but there is always plenty of opportunity to just use the green for social bowls or practice, for those who do not want to play in a league.

The Highfield is a friendly and welcoming club, and we are lucky enough to share our site with a friendly, welcoming family orientated pub too –which is a great bonus.

So, if your New Years resolution was to get outdoors a bit more, get some exercise or just to try a new sport, we would like to recommend you try crown green bowls at The Highfield. For further enquiries please contact the secretary on 07966 373984.

Organisers, Junction Arts, and local artist Dave Elsom are inviting people locally, from across the UK, and Internationally to create their own postcard piece of art and submit it by the 20th of April 2023.

Hannah Bowdler, Fundraising Coordinator at Junction Arts said: “We believe that everyone should have access to art. The Chesterfield Postcard Shows not only provide a free exhibition of marvellous miniature artworks for local people to enjoy, but it also provides a unique opportunity for new artists to exhibit and showcase their talent.

“We’d love more people to get involved this year and are inviting people of all ages and abilities to take part. Your artwork can be whatever you want it to be, a painting, a photograph, digital artwork, you can use whatever material you like, as long as it’s postcard size and is based on the theme of Wish You Were Here.”

Pieces will be available to buy during the exhibition to raise money to support local arts charity Junction Arts and their work within the community. Local businesses are also being invited to support the event by sponsoring local schools to take part. Businesses requiring more information can contact hannah@junctionarts.org.

Submissions should be created on A6 card, not paper, and sent to The Postcard Show, Junction Arts, West Studios Sheffield Road, Chesterfield S41 7ET by the 20th of April 2023. If participants need a card, they can send a message to Hannah@junctionarts.org to request a blank card to be sent to them.

A North Derbyshire WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) production

Words: WASPI

STUNG is a play about WASPI women who thought they would retire with a State Pension at 60 like generations of women before them. How wrong they were! The Government moved the goal-posts not once, but twice and these women bore the brunt. But, you can’t keep a group of strong, determined women down for long.

The Government decided in 1995 to equalise the State Pension age for all. There’s nothing wrong with equality, but women who started working at 15 years old in the late 1960s early 1970s were always told that they would receive their State Pension at 60. In 2011, the Government needed to save even more money, so they changed the State Pension age again, this time to 66 for both men and women. Many women impacted by the 1995 changes, were impacted again by these additional changes. So they had their State Pension age changed twice! The Government callously “paused” the communications about the 1995 changes, so that women born after 1953 were never told that their State Pension age had increased to 65! The Government restarted communications in 2012 to tell people that their State Pension age had gone up to 66.

Many women didn’t receive these letters until they were 58 or 59 years old, expecting to retire at 60. Many had already made decisions earlier that were hard to reverse. Some retired early to look after elderly relatives or grandchildren, some made lifestyle changes so that they had a better work/life balance leading up to retirement, many declined opportunities for advancement as they thought they only had one or two years left to work. When they finally received a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) telling them about the changes, they were devastated.

Apparently, there had been some adverts in newspapers and on

television about it. Who would expect to hear of the most significant change to State Pensions in 50 years from an advert? Especially when the official Government website clearly stated that the State Pension age for women was 60 right up until 2016! Women from all over the country got together and formed campaign groups under the WASPI banner. We weren’t going to take this lying down. The Government was going to hear exactly what we thought about it!

STUNG is about the journey of one of these groups – North Derbyshire WASPI – representing women from Bolsover, Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire. Women tell their actual stories with frankness, sharing moments of poignancy and absolute hilarity. It's our story, but it's also very like your story. Come and see it at West Studios Chesterfield on 4th March (matinee 3pm and evening 7pm) or 5th March (matinee only 2pm). Tickets available from bit.ly/STUNGWeststudios £8 for wage earners, £6 for concessions. These remarkable women are bringing their story to you. Written by Lynn Ludditt, directed by Carole Copeland, filming by Creative Forum and Original Music by Rob Laughlin. Funded by the Arts Council.

Pension Inequality. thought they would retire with a state pension on their 60th birthday like generations of women before themhow wrong they were!

10cc’s GRAHAM


Full of Songs

March 2023

UK Tour Dates

It is only between 10cc’s sell-out, bi-annual UK tours that the band’s co-founder Graham Gouldman is able to fully indulge his Heart Full of Songs project and take it on tour.

The semi-acoustic four-piece performs a broad spread of Graham’s song-writing catalogue, including chart hits for 10cc, the Hollies, Herman’s Hermits, the Yardbirds, Jeff Beck and his time in Wax with Andrew Gold.

The band line-up comprises Graham, 10cc live band members Iain Hornal and Keith Hayman, and Dave Cobby.

When Graham formed what became Heart Full of Songs nine years ago, it was purely for the pleasure of playing his songs in their simplest form, acoustically.

For lovers of perfectly-crafted music performed by the composer, a Heart Full of Songs concert is truly an exquisite experience.

Tickets are also available to purchase from the website below from £36.75.

Words: Transition Chesterfield

Mid-March onwards is the time to plant out potatoes, assuming that the weather is not too cold. If frost is forecast, simply delay the planting until it is over. Once the foliage starts to show, be prepared to cover it if a frost is forecast; most varieties will recover from a light frost but may be weakened, affecting the yield. The cover can be as simple as a sheet of newspaper – anything as long as the foliage isn't directly exposed to the freezing air will usually be fine at this time of year.

Plant onion sets and shallots. Birds sometimes think the tips are worms and pull them up; just push them back if this happens. To discourage the birds, run a few lines of black thread tightly over the bed.

Give perennial herbs a good tidy up, rosemary and sage can often do with a trim now and you can divide and replant clumps of chives and mint also. It is time to buy and plant out young plants of thyme, sage and rosemary.

If the weather is warm the lawn will start to grow, so if there's a dry day give it a cut with the blades set fairly high. Petrol mowers can usually cope with longer, wetter grass but electrics may struggle, so try not to ever let it get too long.

In March, seeds to sow indoors include tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, broccoli, calabrese, lettuce, Brussel sprouts, summer cabbage and try growing beetroot in clusters in modules. Weeds will start into growth, so try to prevent them getting hold by regular weeding. At the same time you can prepare beds by lightly digging them over, incorporating any old compost you have.

Deadhead daffodils, letting the foliage die down naturally, then removing it when it starts to turn yellow. This is when the bulb's reserves of energy are restored, and it prepares for next year - tying it up prevents this happening efficiently and doesn't look nice.

There will be a lot more heat in the sun, so open greenhouse and conservatory doors if you have seedlings in them, so they don’t overheat. But clear sunny days often mean clear, chilly nights, so remember to close them again.

The winter, so far, has been kind to slugs and snails, so expect there to be lots this year. As it gets milder they will start to appear in the garden, so be prepared to combat them. There are lots of possible solutions (pellets, beer traps, and copper bands) but, whatever you do, you'll never entirely be rid of them, so concentrate your efforts on precious plants and small areas.

Plants in containers will appreciate a top dressing. Carefully remove an inch or so of soil and replace it with a new one suitable for containers; it might seem unnecessary to use different sorts of composts for different places but, especially with pots, the right kind makes a big difference.

We’ve now reached the time when the gardening year traditionally starts to get going, so there’s lots to do; keeping on top of it all is the key to success. However, it can be weather dependent - never worry if you can’t do something at the exact time columns like this say you should; relaxing and enjoying it is far more important; get round to things when you can. If you’re trying to get your children interested in gardening then all your good work could be undone by dragging them out into the cold and wet for several hours to do something that could well wait for a week or two.

Keeping the Wolves at bay

Welcome back by fellow Spireites.

Right. I start with acknowledging the elephant in the last magazine. I'd like to hold my Spireite blue hands up and apologise. After I'd sent the last article to print I noticed, and others pointed out to me, that I'd made quite a big error. Unforgivable. On the second page, right at the top I called Jeff King, "Geoff" King. Jeff starts with a J and not a G and for that I sincerely apologise… I might have also accidentally mentioned Paul Cook played for West Brom too prior to their FA Cup 3rd round game. He didn't. He played for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Anyway… (I think I may have got away with that!)

"But Michael I've been in a cave since Christmas, how DID the West Brom tie turn out?" I hear you ask. Well, I'll fill you in. We drew 3-3 as West Bromwich Albion forced a last minute replay. In front of a sell out crowd and one of the best

atmospheres I've witnessed at the stadium in quite some time, we matched the Championship side pound for pound. Yes we went a goal down after just two minutes but we didn't back off and lick our wounds. No, we stepped up, pushed forwards and equalised just five minutes later with a Williams goal. And boy did the stadium erupt, silencing the West Bromwich fans. They definitely weren't expecting that as our reply. They, like us, didn't ease off either as 10 minutes later we conceded again to go 2-1 down. But then, Amando Dobra happened! Dobra netted two before half-time and sent every single Spireite in the ground and possibly the world, (except for our man in the cave) into sheer ecstasy! Five minutes apart Dobra equalised for the blues on the 36th minute and then on the 41st minute he blasted us into the lead which held until the end of the first half. (I'll add that all this was achieved without Tshimanga who was on the bench again. I'll return to this later).

Page 62 www.chesterfieldlocal.com Sport

As the second half kicked off I like all Spireites thought we'd score more goals. But that wasn't to be. There was only one and it took 48 minutes to come. Three minutes into added on time the Spireite's luck ran out, as it has done soooo many times in the past and West Brom equalised. It ended three a piece. The replay took place 10 days later at The Hawthorns but ended 4-0 to West Brom. Shame really as Dobra's goal run ended too. Up until then he'd scored in every round in the FA Cup. Now touching on what I mentioned earlier regarding Tshimanga. I had asked previously in an earlier article whether or not we need him in the squad and should we cash in and sell him. And as it turns out we didn't and we don't. As at the start of the month (February) Kabby moved out to Peterborough United on loan until the end of this season with an aim to a permanent transfer in the summer. Shame. But clearly didn't fit into Cookies formation and plans. Which ironically leaves the club in need of an out and out striker. Personally we do need a full on, quality 20+ goal a season forward. Sure it's always good to see goals being scored by other team members from across the park, but for me, we need a Jack Lester type player. Call me old fashioned but that's what we need to build on the squad we currently have. Unfortunately though we aren't Wrexham and have millionaire owners. Yes currently for whatever reason the form has dipped since the West Brom defeat losing three on the bounce but that for me is due partly to having Covolan back between the posts. Which isn't helping as we slip down the league currently 5th now from last night's 3-1 defeat against Woking.

Having said all that, let's stand back and remember where we are and where we came from. Let's not forget the dismissal years pre takeover. Yes, we are now technically a charity football club which has its own financial issues and restrictions. We are no Deadpool with deep pockets. We do however have owners who, like you and me, are fans of Chesterfield FC. That's got to be better than the previous regime? Remember Dean Saunders? Remember touching the relegation zone of the National League? Right here and right now seems a better use of the phrase "Keep the faith" but let's take a leap of faith in the club now. We're still in the playoffs aren’t we?

All together now, "COYB's!!!"
