Hello and welcome to the summer edition of S41 Local Magazine. At the time of writing this I have had some washing on the line for at least 72 hours! I fear we may never be able to dry washing outdoors in the UK, again!
It has been a rainy start to the summer for us all, but that doesn’t mean the kids have been missing out during the six-week holidays. As money is less abundant for a lot of us this year, we have been looking at ways to minimise our expenditure whilst ensuring the kids make memories that will last a lifetime.
Rather than fork out for a summer holiday abroad we decided to spend our money in the UK supporting independent businesses. We had an enchanting few days camping in North east Yorkshire, exploring the charming village of Pickering, where a delightful steam train runs through the centre. A sunny day by the seaside in Whitby, complete with indulging in the quintessential fish and chips. Adding a touch of adventure to our trip, we embarked on a thrilling ride on a pirate ship, and even saw dolphins playing in the water! On our last day we visited the historic and architecturally rich, York, which was wasted on the kids, but at least they enjoyed the delicious street food and toy shops!
Speaking of food, I can hear Florie shouting for a snack in her bedroom. Working from home and the six weeks holidays are... interesting!
There is still plenty of time to make the most of your summer this year. Here are some of my top picks for local fun this August/ September:
Yoga – with the guys at KULA
Book a tennis lesson at Chesterfield Lawn Tennis Club
Hire a bike at Hassop Station and ride the Monsal Trail
The Tapton Lock Festival – free fun for all the family
Attend the Barlow Carnival – 16th to the 20th of August
This edition's colourful front cover was created by, Jimmy. I caught up with him at his house to view his work and talk about childhood and art. Read all about it in this edition.
Whittington Moor has a great new vinyl store (Talk of the Grapevinyl) on Sheffield Road. I popped in and got chatting to the owner, Andy.
The Chesterfield Tennis Championships took place in July with some fantastic action on display and a BBQ. Sadly, I did not win!
Whatever you do with rest of your summer, I hope you have the best time.
Peace, love, and positivity, Simon, Bekah, Eva, and Florie

Meet our front cover artist
Words: Simon Paterson
Life hasn't always been easy for this month's cover artist, Jimmy. However, through his unwavering love and passion for art, he has managed to turn his life around and now envisions a bright future ahead!
During my visit to Jimmy's house, I was truly inspired to see his most prominent pieces adorning the walls and doors as stunning murals. Each artwork spoke volumes about his talent and dedication to his craft.
As an editor, it brings me immense pride and privilege to provide a platform for individuals like Jimmy to showcase their exceptional work and talents. Without further ado, I proudly present Jimmy, an artist who has triumphed against all odds, and whose creative journey continues to inspire us all.
When did you first discover your passion for art?
“As a child, I spent a lot of time with my Nanna Lilly who was an artist in her own right. She worked at Pearson’s in the pottery department, and during the six weeks holidays we would do pottery together, arts and crafts. I loved putting my designs onto the ceramic pieces she made.”
Jimmy derives inspiration for his art through a meditative state, a practice that opens a gateway to a world of creativity. During these tranquil moments, his mind transcends the confines of daily life, and he experiences artistic visions that flow from within.
With a deep sense of connection to his inner self, Jimmy brings these artistic visions to life on canvas, doors, walls and paper. His unique selling point is illustrating envelopes many of which are for sale.
“Art maintains balance within my mind and life, it plays a huge role in my mental health and wellbeing and enables me to feel productive. Psychology health is just as important as your mental health as the two are interlinked.”
Jimmy attended an art class at Chesterfield College and recently exhibited some his work at West Studios, as part of the Chesterfield Postcard Show created by the wonderful Junction Arts team.
“My work was appreciated (I think), and a couple of my postcards were purchased during the exhibition which was nice. It was a fantastic experience for me overall and I look forward to next years.”
Our front cover of a colourful city landscape is an image of an A3 canvas that Jimmy currently has for sale.
“I drew inspiration from the Chesterfield Pride. The colours represent solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. The colourful river is the Derwent, and it flows across the bottom of the canvas. I got lost in this piece a few times, but in a good way."
Jimmy is consistently honing his skills as an illustrator and artist. He is seeking to build on his existing skill set and is optimistic for the future. Additionally, Jimmy is eager to delve back into the world of ceramics and pottery. If you are willing to support him on this artistic journey, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at simon@s41local. com. I'll gladly connect you with Jimmy, opening doors for collaboration and assistance to nurture his passion for ceramics and design.

Meet Kevin and Bronwyn, a couple with a passion for community, yoga and mindfulness. Their new business Kula will (hopefully) be open at 7 Mansfield Road, Hasland by the time you read this, offering a relaxing, simple space to escape the everyday, take a yoga class, a mindfulness session or just meet and be one of the community that the couple want to invite into their new home.
Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as community, clan, or tribe, sometimes used by the yoga community to denote the sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice. It aligns perfectly with what the pair are looking to achieve.
Bronwyn has been teaching yoga locally for over a year now. At the core of her teaching is creating the space to slow down, listen and press reset on both body and mind.
"As well as the yoga and mindfulness classes we’ll be hosting other well-being related events,” explains Kevin. “Our business is a Social Enterprise and everything we do will be for the benefit of the community. We're in the process of converting the business to a Community Interest Company (CIC). Once approved, Kula's assets are locked, meaning everything the business owns are protected for the benefit of the community."
"Our paid for classes will help subsidise others and allow us to run regular pay-what-you-can classes, opening up yoga to more people. We want to make
mobility and wellbeing available to as many people as possible."
Bronwyn wanted to create a space she hadn't quite found. "I didn't feel like I fitted in to these spaces. And I'm really looking forward to cultivating the studio I wish I had as a beginner student.
"We're trying to create a space that feels welcoming. Also, safe practice is so important. "It's not all about the harder faster yoga, we don't want people being pushed to the point of injury. Yes, there will always be a challenge in the sessions but that's not the expectation of Kula. "Kula is a place to take time out. Time for you. To calm down after a day's work and learn to selfregulate."
After her Yoga Teacher Training she again started to look how she felt and how she could live more intentionally, slowing down brings joy and now wants to share this process with people.
She jokes that "I'm quite a simple being really, I love cold, snowy, icy mountains."
Kevin started practicing meditation in 2013 and found it instantly beneficial, he’s completed a tenday silent Vipassana course where over the ten days he would do eight hours of silent meditation

each day. "It was extremely intense," he adds, "it changed my outlook on life and helped clarify all sorts of things."
Kevin adds, "we want to give people the tools to look after their own well-being, five or ten minutes each morning can be a game changer."
I met Kevin and Bronwyn at Slow Social, a network group set up to bring the creative community together, and I can see how this slots nicely into the ethos behind Kula.
Classes start in August, with the full timetable going live in September, look out for the official launch event, head over to their socials for details. Bronwyn already offers classes at Spital so will be relocating these to Kula, and as mentioned earlier, they will be complimenting their classes with a variety of courses from other teachers. Their website and socials will contain a timetable of events so be sure to give them a follow.
If this appeals, their Crowdfunder is live until the end of August. Despite having raised most the funds to start themselves, they need help with the final push to get up and running.
I must admit that as I get older movement doesn’t seem to be what it was, I’ve never been particularly flexible but the idea of a yoga class to help with my flexibility and improve my health for the years
ahead does seem interesting. I might have to rock up and see how I get on.
As I put the ipad down after chatting with Kevin, he told me that he’s part Turkish. "In Turkey, there is a concept known as ‘askida ekmek', which means hanging bread, it's an Ottoman tradition where those who are able to buy an extra loaf of bread at the bakery, which gets passed onto someone in need."
"It’s like gifting a coffee here in the UK, it kind of sums up what we are trying to do with the studio, paying students help allow for the free sessions and widening of access."
I really like the sound of Kula, it feels fresh and inclusive. I can’t wait to see the space and who knows, I might even bump into you on a class… I really am that badly co-ordinated! And if you want to give them a try scan the QR code below for a chance to win six months free yoga!

The Ancient Chapel of Newbold
Words: Lisa Hopkinson
Images: The New Figaro
The following article describing a walk from town along the Holme Brook to Eyre’s Chapel in Newbold was published in The New Figaro, a comic paper of the time, in 1915 by an unknown author. It describes a landscape and landmarks still familiar today though some (the Drill Hall at Ashgate) have been sadly demolished and Brockwell Lane
no longer crosses the Holme Brook. We love the disparaging remarks about Newbold and mercenary builders!

Pilgramages in Chesterfield District
No. 7: The Ancient Chapel of Newbold
Newbold is not one of the prettiest of the many ancient parishes within easy reach of Chesterfield, but it is believed to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest – excepting of course Chesterfield – but like so many of the ancient Manors still existing of which the Scarsdale Hundred was comprised, Newbold has lingered on through the centuries, content to live its own tortuous life, regardless of the progressive tendencies that have renewed old townships, and made many new ones in modern times.
To reach this old-world Township – for we must not repeat the offence committed by many unwary chroniclers and say “Parish” for Newbold is said to have been a Township long before Chesterfield rose to that dignity – we may take the road which leads from Holywell Cross, and proceed in almost direct route, a matter of two miles, or we may take the pleasanter way and cross the meadow footpaths, one of which may be reached by way of Newbold Back Lane, the other by way of Brockwell.
For our pilgrimage today let us take the pleasanter paths, and finding ourselves at the Drill Hall, avoid the downward turn to Ashgate and take the road which leads to Brockwell and the Holme Brooke. The walk is a pleasant one, and the view obtained of the western and southwestern hills, and the reaches of upper Brampton and Walton are both pleasing and unique, but we must not linger too long on our way for we have a most interesting object in view, that will well repay us for our journey.
When we have arrived at the Holme Brook the Brockwell Lane comes to an abrupt end, for the brook bars the way. A small wooden bridge is the only means available for crossing, unless one does not mind wading through the stream, which travellers in the ages past have done because it was a customary thing to do, for this is an ancient ford. ‘Ford’ is old English for road across a shallow brook or stream and ‘Brock’ is old English for badger or polecat, hence Brockwell Ford may mean a place where badgers or polecats once abounded in a wild state, which is very likely for the district has all the appearance of having been once a very wild one, and a natural haunt for both fur and feather in the days of our forefathers.
The extract from a 1921 OS map opposite shows the Drill Hall on Ashgate Road (below the
L in Chesterfield)and Brockwell Lane running diagonally which crosses the Holme Brook at Brockwell Ford and continues to Cutthorpe (where the old bridleway leading to Holmebrook Valley Park retains the name Brockwell Lane). Eyre’s chapel is towards the top left of the map. We do not cross this brook, but turn to the right, and over a stile to a footpath which leads us towards Newbold, and the ancient Chapel which we see when we reach the top of the rising ground. The Chapel stands quite alone in the middle of what was once a burial ground, having many tombstones and sacred monuments dotted over its surface, that was as late as the seventeenth century. During the reign of William III, all the tombstones were destroyed or removed, the chapel nearly destroyed, and as a place of worship made useless. A certain Rhodes Hibbert of Newbold, placed on record the fact that the ancient tombstones were carried away by mercenary builders, and used in the erection of some of the houses in the vicinity, some of them being used as door jambs, lintels, mantel pieces and steps.
The Chapel is of the greatest antiquity, and is believed to be on the original site, even if its foundations are not the same foundations upon which the original Chapel stood at Domesday, and there are certain indications that the Chapel at Newbold was the mother Church of Chesterfield. If that is so, the child has indeed outgrown the parent, both in bulk of building and prosperity.
For many centuries the Chapel has been the burial place of the ‘Eyres’ of Newbold and Padley, and of the Holme, from which homestead the Holme Brook takes its name.
The Chapel is a plain building (pictured on the folowing page), with an inside area of thirty-six feed by sixteen, the windows are square headed ones of two lights each, the main doorway is of the same pattern and the four corners of the building are ornamented with pinnacles.
The most interesting feature of the Chapel is the priests’ doorway on the south side, this is of very small dimension, being only five feet three inches high, and two feet broad, the top is formed of a semi-circular stone ornamented with flowing foliage, much defaced. Several of the stones forming the door jambs also bear traces of the original sculpture, a kind of horse shoe moulding. The walls, too, contain stones that have unmistakeable signs on them showing
Page 13 Please Mention S41 Local
that they have been used in a former erection, and are of the early Norman period. The interior of the Chapel is now entirely desolate, very little furniture being left.
The Chapel was restored some thirty years ago by the representative of the Eyres, to whom the Chapel belongs, and a plain simple stone cross was erected close to the west end of the Chapel, and on it pedestal base may see sculptured the simple words:
Vincent Thomas Eyre
Arthur Henry Eyre
Ferdinand John Eyre
The stone cross is all that bears witness in that ancient burial ground of the generations of a once famous family of high-spirited and loyal Derbyshire men and women, and the Chapel a standing monument of the days when Newbold was the seat of a powerful and vigorous Lord, surrounded by his retainers and tenantry, where they worshipped in their own fashion the God of their fathers.
A future article will consider possible locations for the lost Norman manor house from which Newbold, described in the Domesday Book, got its name.

Talk of the Grapevinyl
Vinyl, posters, slip mats and jigsaws
Words: Simon Paterson
Images: Talk of the Grapevinyl
One of the most cherished memories from my childhood revolves around the joyous moments spent exploring my dad’s record collection, carefully selecting a vinyl to play solely based on its captivating artwork: "this one looks cool!"
My dad possessed an extensive record collection, and nothing brought me more delight than singing along (badly) to the Beatles and Free in the front room.
Vinyl records may have taken a backseat in the 90s due to the rise of CDs, but they have made a remarkable comeback, surpassing all expectations. They are now more popular than ever, engaging enthusiasts with their unique charm and warm sound.
Recently, I had the opportunity to reconnect with Andy Pitchford, the proud owner of Talk of the Grapevinyl Record Store on Sheffield Road. Together, we indulged in reminiscing over our shared passion for records and our love for live music.
What can you expect when you visit Talk of the Grapevinyl? “We stock over 10,000 records
ranging from classical to house and hip-hop. There is something for everybody here. We also sell posters, slip mats and music themed mugs and jigsaw puzzles. I am always on hand to advise, and if we don’t have what you are looking for in stock, I will do my best to order it in for you.”
What is you earliest musical memory, Andy?
“It’s 1980, and my parents have bought me a Goodmans record player. We go to the record store, and I buy Adam the Ants - Kings of the Wild Frontier, and Hazel O'Connor - Breaking Glass. I rush home to play them on repeat. Great memories.”
With the multiple music streaming services available at the touch of a screen, why do you think vinyl is so popular with Gen Z? “I often wondered this myself, so I asked quite a few of my younger customers and it came down several things; they love the artwork and inserts that come with a record. You can’t skip tracks easily on a record which means you have to listen to the album in the order the artist intended. They like the experience of putting something physical on and creating time to properly listen to it.”
Page 16 www.s41local.com
What was the driving force behind opening Talk of the Grapevinyl? “I had an illness a few years ago which left me unable to work for some time. I had always bought and sold records as a hobby/ passion of mine. My wife suggested making this more of a permanent venture which inspired to me have a website created. With online sales going well I was able to open Talk of the Grapevinyl on Sheffield Road in March of 2022. I have a lot to thank her for and I absolutely love running my own business in Chesterfield.”
How big is your personal vinyl collection? “My wife would say too big!”
If you went to live on a desert island and you could only take five records to listen to for the rest of your life, which ones would you choose? “The selftitled album The Stone Roses would be my first choice. I love the early 90’s indie scene and this is as good as it gets. My wife got me into Pink Floyd so I would have to say Wish You Here, their 9th studio album. Going back to my roots it would have to be Quadrophenia by The Who, the original, not the remake that came out with the film. London Calling by The Clash, which is our record of the week being played on Crags Radio. One left, this is a big decision. It would have to be 30 Someting by Carter USM. I could listen to that all day, love it!”
What records should every collector have in their collection? “The obvious ones are Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I could sell Rumours by Fleetwood Mac three times a week.
Thriller by Michael Jackson, True Blue by Madonna, Purple Rain by Prince. There are so many amazing albums out there, but just buy what you love, and you can’t go wrong.”
I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Andy, and I must say that Talk of the Grapevinyl is a splendid addition to Whitington Moor on Sheffield Road.

Why don't you just switch off your television set and go and do something less boring instead?
Remember that? It was a show on the BBC which ran for 42 series between August 1973 and April 1995. It delivered exactly what the name suggested, things to do, to make, to play etc, things that got you active and away from the TV. I suppose today it would have to be altered to 'switch off your phone' but as we hit the summer holidays I've picked four local'ish activities that could keep you busy for a bit and mentally stimulated ... yes, eating fish and chips on a canal boat is mentally stimulating!
No 1: A Fish & Chip or Afternoon Tea Cruise
Between now and the end of September you can board a narrow boat at Tapton Lock and enjoy either an afternoon or evening Fish & Chip cruise along the Chesterfield canal. You could also have Afternoon Tea, whichever takes your fancy.
Prices vary from £20.50 to £23 if you visit the link below you'll find all the details on timings and locations etc. Anchors Aweigh!
No 2: Bike Ride & Evening Pizza
Ok, this is logistically a bit of a challenge but if you can get the family and bikes out to Bakewell you can park up and enjoy a ride along the traffic free Monsall Trail.
The old railway line runs for 9.5 miles from Coombs Road in Bakewell to Blackwell Mill rising 460 feet (no it's not flat). Riding through the tunnels is described as 'one of the cycling highlights of Great Britain' and it's on our doorstep. You can hire bikes at Hassop Station and the return trip from Hassop to the old station at Millers Dale is just 10.3 miles.
The highlight of this one for me, is that if you do this in the early evening, you can enjoy pizza and a pint from Hassop Station Cafe as they stay open until 9pm on Friday and Saturday evenings in the school holidays. Allez Allez.
No 3: Open Top Bus Tour of the Peak District
New this year is a service from local operator Stagecoach offering an open top bus ride around the Peak District.
You can sit back and enjoy the scenery from a grandstand view as the open top bus takes you to Chatsworth, Baslow, Calver, Hassop Station, Bakewell, Ashford in the Water and Pilsley.
Day tickets are £6 and buses run every 30 minutes, you're free to hop on and hop off as many times as you’d like. There are two buses leaving Chesterfield train station at 9:10 and 9:40am passing Brookfield at 9:24 and 9:54am. The last buses back to Chesterfield from Chatsworth House is at 5:49 and 6:19pm. Ding ding.
No 4: Walk & Picnic
We have so many options to walk from the door in Chesterfield. The walk we've included in this edition takes us from Storrs Road, through Linacre and Holmebrook, skirting through woodland, open countryside, through farms and past reservoirs all, not bad without having to travel.
We also have a number of walks on our website, Wigley, Stanedge, Holymoorside, Linacre and Westwick Lane. Just go to chesterfieldlocal.com and search on 'walk'.
Wait for the sun to shine, pack a picnic, you can even source local produce for your picnic and enjoy a bit of nature. Leave only footsteps!

At last I get It!
Words: Paul Chapman
Irecently met up with Kaye Wallis from Laterlivingnow! at their home-office in Brampton, to see how things are going. Now bear with me here, it was only whilst chatting with Kaye that I got the name, after all these years; it’s about enjoying your years in later life, but doing it now!
Laterlivingnow! are equity release experts in their field, are extremely well respected across the country, have achieved numerous awards, and with recent new joins to the team, offer nationwide services. Equity release is a financial product that allows homeowners, typically 55 or older, to access the equity tied up in their property without having to sell it or move out. It's a way for people to release some of the value stored in their homes and turn it into cash, which can be used to supplement their retirement income or fund other expenses.
Laterlivingnow! are a team of six, their base is Chesterfield and Kaye joined in January as Relationship Director. Previously in new-build property, she is also partner to Simon Chalk the MD of Laterlivingnow!
Simon helped shape the rules that make equity release safe, by serving on the Equity Release Council’s Standards Board, and is a SOLLA Advisory Board Member, having specialised in equity release for over 20 years.
I asked Kaye for the typical use people put their released capital to. "At the moment, the rising cost-of-living is at the top of most client agendas, with people topping up pension income being a common use; people can create a lump sum pot that they drawdown from when they need a bit of money.
"People also use the capital to pay for care services later in life, it might allow someone to stay in their home with care coming in to assist. It maybe that children need a hand with a deposit for their first home.
"Equity release is an enabler for so many things –it can be a way of helping children now, rather than waiting until you are gone.
"If you don’t have children or dependents to inherit your estate, equity release is an excellent way to enjoy your capital whilst you are still fit and able."
Kaye was keen to point out that Equity Release isn’t right for everyone – they always consider alternative ways of helping clients, and if there could be a negative impact on any benefits they might be entitled to.
The released capital is subject to interest, with options to pay some or all of it, or to let it roll-up and increase the loan balance, which is eventually repaid when the property is sold – usually following your death, or move into care. The older you are, the more you can release, with some lenders going to 50% of the property value, Kaye informed me.

Laterlivingnow! are all about local, a small team that started in Chesterfield, they love supporting local Businesses. As well as living locally and working together Kaye and Simon are due to marry in October. "Loving local businesses as we do," says Kaye, "we’ve tried to keep everything associated with the wedding local and as S40 as we can. The venue is The Peak Edge Hotel, wines from Hattersley’s of Bakewell, bridesmaid dress from Blanc, flowers from Fresh Ideas, hairstyles by Harleys, Simon’s outfit from Ingman’s, and the allimportant wedding dress is from Nora Eve."
Before his 35-years working in Financial Services, Simon worked in the adventure gear trade, and as such his love of the outdoors has stuck. Chesterfield makes a great base from which to explore the UK and most of their weekends are spent away in their campervan with dog, Jess. One thing I noted about Jess, is that she has her very own fan page on the website, being the company’s very own ‘Head of Client Welcoming!”
Be sure to give Simon, Kaye and of course Jess a smile if you see them out and about around Brampton.

Where Ravens Circle
“In 991, Vikings sail up the Blackwater Estuary and attack Maldon in Essex. Inside the church of St Mary the Virgin, a priest and a group of women anxiously await the outcome of the battle. In 1979, Dr Emma Stuart, a genealogist in London, is asked by a client from Denmark to trace a Viking ancestor. An eleventh-century whetstone found on his farm has a puzzling inscription. She decides to investigate. Then, when her mother inherits a sixteenth century house in Norwich from an unknown relative, Emma's research suggests possible links to her own past that began in a church at the Battle of Maldon.”
‘Where Ravens Circle’ is the fourth novel by local author Gaynor Lynn Taylor. Her first three books are thrillers, but this is her first historical love story. Her passion for writing tales from the past started in Scarthin Books in Cromford where she once found an old travelogue. “I like to make links between the past and present day,” says Gaynor.
“It was in a history book that I came across a Norwegian Earl called Eric, and decided to make him the main man in ‘Where Ravens Circle’.”
Download Amazon UK and search for ‘WhereRavens Circle’. Click on the cover to read the first eight chapters. An e-book is also available.
Books may also be bought for £10 from Gaynor. All proceeds are to go to charitable causes.

Three books to seek out with a local connection.
Clowne at War - WW1 Clowne Local History Society
Researched by Rita Mellor and produced in conjunction with the Clowne Local History Society, 'Clowne at War WWI' contains additional names and background information added to original research, and is now available to purchase.
There are 105 men and boys named on the Memorial from the first World War with the youngest aged 17 and the oldest 38.
These men served in 30 different regiments/ services and were active across all the areas of the First World War from Gallipoli through France and Belgium with battle names that are now familiar to us, Mons, Ypres, Passchendaele and many more.
It is a story for Clowne families and relatives of the fallen that is at last told in some detail with many photos of the men culled from newspaper archives and military records.
The publication has been made possible by support from Cllr Natalie Hoy Derbyshire Council and from Capital Refractories of Clowne.
There is ongoing research into this area by Clowne Local History Society and we give our thanks here to Barlborough Heritage who have strongly supported our research efforts, and potential new names for the Memorial are still being found and will be documented.
The book can be purchased for £15 directly from the Clowne Local History Society through their facebook site or call 01246 819173.
The next task for the group are the WW2 names.
Rocket the Rabbit
Gareth, you might remember, worked with me at S40 Local for a few years but today lives with his wife and children in the seaside town of Torbay, South Devon. 'Rocket the Rabbit' is his first children's book.
Alongside writing and illustrating fun, heartwarming children’s stories, he spends his days as a Youth Worker.
Always eager to explore the creative arts Gareth is also a published songwriter, graphic designer and even built and designed Campervans. He also spent some time working as a teacher before writing his first set of children’s books.
“Rocket was a rabbit with an extraordinary mind, He had a heart for adventure, and he was wonderfully kind.
"Despite his fears and insecurities, upon hearing the news that the Burrows were soon to be destroyed, Rocket hesitantly steps up to give the whole rabbit clan a chance of survival. A timeless, heart-warming story bound to make you smile, chuckle, and most importantly, leave you feeling that little bit braver."
Rocket the Rabbit, Gareth’s eagerly-awaited Children’s book, was described as a ‘tribute to all dreamers’, making it a fitting introduction to the industry - but rest assured, there’s plenty more to come.
Rocket the Rabbit is available to purchase from Amazon for £7.99 plus postage.

No One Expects ...
Words: Ed Fordham
When ploughing through a novel or text I am often caught unaware by a serious plot change. This can be true in films and documentaries - as well as in life.
When watching or reading Game of Thrones, no one expected or predicted The Red Wedding. I recall my shock reading Lord of the Rings when Boromir was killed by the Orcs, in lives cut short popular culture is peppered by shock events - the death of Buddy Holly by example.
Last week we closed our small unit shop in the Market Hall and moved back into the Open Air Market with a stall on Thursdays and Saturdays. It is where we started and where most of you encountered us in the first place.
This was an unexpected turn for us, but it is far from the end of the story and we have more to do, but we are hoping that the plot change in the next few weeks will be fun and lively. We are on the hunt for a new premises but have not yet secured what we think we need.
But for now, your access to books and booksellers should be sufficiently sated by Chesterfield’s significant Open Air Market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
For our part, last Thursday it was back to our roots and we returned with stunning weather and renewed vigour and it was great to see so many of you.
The simple truth, and this is a pleasure to write, is that we have been very touched and appreciative of your loyalty and support. We have heard your love of the shop, we have seen your desire to read, and we will do all we can to secure premises for the long term.
We continue to have the Facebook page: Brockwell Books of Chesterfield and we would urge you to keep your eyes open there.
Oh and as for the market stall - we are indulging your love of Chesterfield in other ways too… we are including a wide range of Pearson’s Pottery, have a fair amount of Dems glass and to reflect the wider Derbyshire traditions we also have a good spattering of studio pottery too…
Books and pottery and glassware - not much else one could want for a relaxed evening at home or a lazy weekend in the garden or in the conservatory. Hope to see you all soon and do spread the word. Chesterfield Market - by far the best market in Derbyshire and we would argue - one of the largest and best across the East Midlands and more.

Dirty Stop Outs
Heritage project will ensure Chesterfield's Aquarius is never forgotten
Words & Images: Neil Anderson
It outlasted the majority of its peers, but all that now remains are memories as the bulldozers moved in to clear all that remained of Chesterfield’s legendary Aquarius. However, the legacy of the cabaret club – unlike that of rivals like Batley Variety Club and the Fiesta in Sheffield – is being preserved thanks to a £70,000 National Lottery Heritage Fund project. The Dirty Stop Outs have been busy over the past few months recording the memories of everyone from the stars that performed to people that worked there or enjoyed nights at the once-revered Sheffield Road venue.
Robin Colvill of the hit comedy troupe, the Grumbleweeds, says the venue played a key role in their success: “We used to do a lot of gigs at the Aquarius – we’d perform three to four weeks every year. We were very popular – it was always heaving. Because of the Aquarius, we did a BBC Radio show and that led to a TV show.”
Central to the Aquarius project has been the restoration and digitisation of hundreds of photos from the 1970s and 1980s that were taken by the club’s in-house photographer, David Miller.
The Aquarius, which first opened in 1972, attracted some of the biggest stars in light entertainment in a career that lasted nearly a quarter of a century. The venue even hosted the very first headlining show of Cannon & Ball.
The Aquarius was an instant hit. Overnight it became the focal point for works outings, hen nights, stag nights, Christmas parties – everything happened at the venue.
Neil Anderson of the Dirty Stop Outs said: “The Aquarius shaped the lives of generations of local people in the Chesterfield area over many years, and it has been a privilege to capture their incredible memories as part of this project. The venue outlasted the majority of the UK's cabaret clubs and was a firm favourite amongst the stars of the era.”
The coming months are set to see the publication of a new book, the launch of a website, an exhibition, and events to celebrate the legacy of the Aquarius.

Half a Hope to Win & Lose
Words: Maggie Kellman
Image: Mike Chenery
Mike Chenery takes on a Peak District half marathon raising funds for a great local cause. The play equipment at St David's Rise Park in Walton has been locked now for months as it is unsafe to use. Thankfully local residents have formed ‘The Friends of St David’s Rise Park’ to raise funds for a new play area. In July this year, Mike Chenery, a member of the group, took on a personal challenge dubbed “Half a Hope to Win & Lose” – a sponsored half marathon over the Peak District - starting in Hope, scaling over 2,300ft ascent along a route with Win Hill as the first summit and Lose Hill as the last before descending back into Hope.
Mike started his running by completing the couch to 5k program during lockdown as a way of getting more exercise during the COVID restrictions, at the same time his mother also started running. In October 2021 Mike and his Mum ran their first run together unaware of the tragic year they would have ahead of them. On 28 February 2022 his mother was suddenly diagnosed with terminal cancer and sadly passed away on Christmas day of the same year. During this time Mike struggled to come terms with the rapid decline in his mother’s health and subsequent death, through counselling he discovered running was an excellent coping strategy.
Mike said "I know my Mum would have loved a new park to take her grandkids to, so it seems fitting that I can do this to help raise these much needed funds.
"During the run I felt great until 9 miles in, after leaving Edale and heading up Mam Tor I was exhausted. I was really feeling the loss of my Mum but the support from my partner, friends and everyone who sponsored me kept me going, so much so I managed a sprint down Lose Hill into Hope for the finish.”
"I know I'm repeating myself, but the support from everyone really has been astounding, it actually created a little bit of pressure leading up to the run. I enjoyed the run and the support during was great but the last 4 miles were the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced for sure.
"Thanks to my partner, without whom, I wouldn’t have been able to train properly, and thanks to my friend who got up early and walked the route a few hours in front in case I needed help.
"The total raised is amazing and I still can’t believe people's generosity, it’s brilliant."
Mike's biggest, hardest, and steepest challenge to date, was successfully completed, in July. His 'Half a Hope to Win & Lose' had a modest target of £400, to date he has smashed this with £1,365 kindly donated.

Tapton Lock Festival
Returns In September
Words & Images: Junction Arts
Now in its eleventh year, organisers have confirmed that the popular Tapton Lock Festival will return this September with a host of new activities and entertainment for families to enjoy. The free annual event is organised by Junction Arts and Derbyshire County Council, with the aim of bringing families and friends together to enjoy the outdoors, promoting better health and wellbeing. During the weekend the Chesterfield Canal comes alive with outdoor theatre, music and dance, arts and crafts workshops, stalls, ‘have a go’ canoes, boat rides and much more.
Family favourites such as the brilliant bubbleologist, circus skills and climbing wall will return but there’ll also be some new entertainment for 2023 including performances and workshops from Bollywood dancers, African drummers and the Babbling Vagabonds Magical Market Stall! Visitors will also be able to try their hand at Lego printing, and greenwood crafts or get greenfingered in a seed workshop.
Junction Arts Coordinator Jane Wells said: “Tapton Lock Festival brings together the arts and the outdoors to create an event that is inclusive and accessible to all. It encourages communities to come together and enjoy the beautiful canal walkways that are on our doorstep. Working with Derbyshire Countryside Services, each year we aim to bring back the popular activities but also introduce something new… This year we’re excited to have new performers and activities that will bring even more colour and vibrancy to the festival.
“At Junction Arts, our aim is to build stronger communities through the arts and The Tapton Lock Festival is a great example of this! The festival raises awareness of the area along the Chesterfield Canal and the network of footpaths and cycleways, encouraging people to spend more time in nature with family and friends becoming healthier and happier.”
As part of the festival Junction Arts has commissioned an ‘artist in residence’ at Chesterfield Football Club to work with a small group of young people who attend Thr1ve, a social prescribing group for young people, part of the Club’s Spireites Trust.
Tapton Lock Festival is a free event that takes place around the Tapton Lock Visitor Centre on the 9 and 10 September from 11am until 4pm daily. For more information visit and follow as below.

• Second Early potato varieties will be ready to harvest now, depending upon when they were planted. They usually take about 16 weeks to produce a good crop. They can be lifted as you want them, but if you notice slug holes in the crop it is better to lift them all before the damage worsens. Store only the undamaged tubers and use the others quickly.
• Summer pruning of apple and pear trees can be done now. This helps them to keep their form and remain healthy without having congested growth.
• Most hedges can be pruned or trimmed into shape now, bird nesting should be over and this will give time for limited new growth before it slows down in autumn.
• Keep sowing quick-maturing salad crops –rocket, radishes, mixed leaves and some lettuces are all candidates – they’ll go on growing until the first frosts. Several lettuce varieties including Winter Density, Great Lakes and Lambs lettuce (corn salad) will last through the winter.
• If you’ve got empty patches of soil, consider sowing a green manure; this will cover the ground and put much needed nutrients back into the soil. This will stop weeds becoming established and is best dug in before it sets seed.
• Several herbs can be sown at this time of year in a greenhouse or cold frame e.g. chervil, dill, parsley and coriander can be protected from frost this way and will crop during the late season and winter.
• Pot up any strawberry runners that have rooted or encourage them to do so by pinning them firmly to the ground and make sure they are watered in a dry spell.
• Apart from gently pottering around the garden, this should be the time of year you can spend most time simply enjoying it; however, it's the time most plants, including weeds, also enjoy, so try to stop them setting seed – there's an old saying, 'one year’s seeding is seven year's weeding'...
• Keep feeding birds to attract them to the garden, where they will also hunt out damaging insects and larvae. A shallow pool is a great wildlife draw, with the possible added bonus of seeing blackbirds washing themselves in a comically Victorian fashion, constantly checking to make sure they're not being overlooked, and covered head-to-toe in black.

As the 2023/24 football season prepares to kick off I take a look back at the pre-season matches and ask, will 2024 be the year Chesterfield Football Club finally return back to the football league?
Since 2018 the Spireites have been fighting it out to get back into League Two and last season proved that they are within touching distance of achieving it by their defeat in the playoff final at Wembley. But before all that the club needed to get back into the field and stretch their legs in preparation for that upcoming task…again.
First up came our annual visit to nearby Matlock Town. This went well for us as we not only showcased a couple of cracking new signings in Will Grigg and new keeper Harry Tyrer but it was
the first time ex Gladiator Jesurun Uchegbulam played against his former club since his move to the club last season. We won the game 9-0 with a very convincing performance. Mandeville, Dobra and Grigg all bagged 2 goals while Colclough, White and a tralist got the rest. Next came another pre-season regular, Alfreton Town away. That ended with a 5-1 win to the Spireites with goals coming from Maguire, Dobra, Grigg and 2 from Quigley. Then came the first of the two home games against Sheffield, Wednesday and United. Rather predictably we lost both games but to be honest not as many goals were conceded as I was expecting. This is partly due to Chesterfield playing reasonably well and defending better than alot were anticipating, as they are two bigger clubs compared to us. But for the Sheff Wed game, at
Page 48 www.s41local.com
least King got on the score sheet. Incidentally that game was also Drew Talbot's long awaited testimonial game. Shame he didn't play but at least the game finally went ahead for him. Also, speaking of legends returning, it was nice to see Sir Jack of Lester back at ground with the Blades apart of their coaching staff. Next up came Derby, the last of the 3 home ties. Just like the Sheffield Utd game Derby brought a fair few supporters along as both games were near enough sell outs for the visiting teams, which is great news for the old club coffers which will be needed for this season's new signings I'm sure. On the pitch though Derby inevitably won but again not by much, just one goal in it. Following this came another away fixture at Paul Cook's old club, Accrington. “If I don't drink lots of milk….” yeah that always takes me back too whenever Accrington gets mentioned, anyway the score. Chesterfield won 3-2 with goals coming from Banks, Dobra and Colclough. Lastly came Bristol Rovers away and that ended in 2-0 defeat.
So as the start of the season draws near and we welcome Dorking on the 5th August I can't help but wonder how it'll all pan out. Sure there will be some who say we are favorites and this is the best form and set up the club have ever been in, especially the calibre of new players on a 3 year deal brought in preparation for the challenge. And I've heard others say “now Wrexham and Notts Co have been promoted we are Going to walk this league!” but for me (cover your ears dead hard Spireites) it's NOT a given. We have a cracking line up of talent and as every team knows and has to cope with, there is one small word that scares me. Injuries. This hit me, as I was sitting photographing the Derby game. Griggs was pegging it down the field to try and link up to a through ball, running towards the keeper, when a defender slid in and tackled him and as he got up, he started hobbling for a bit but luckily shuck it off. Then it dawned on me. “He best not get injured, it's only the preseason!” And this goes for all our players. We don't have the biggest squad so I guess it just boils down to luck, so fingers crossed and hope for the best. I’m sure my fears will sort themselves out, once we start netting the goals and winning the games, this will all distract me as we climb the table. It's been a long hard 5 seasons or so in this league but I'm certain we will make damn sure we’re up there fighting for the title!
