ISSUE 45 November 2023 The community magazine for Ashgate, Brushfield, Brockwell, Cutthorpe, Highfield, Linacre, Loundsley Green, Piccadilly and Upper Newbold
Cover Image: Jonathan Nadin
Editors letter Hello and welcome to the November edition of S41 Local Magazine. So, what have we been up to since our last edition?
Paul (S40) and I were invited to join a group of creative local businesses led by Junction Arts and Chesterfield Borough Council. Our goal is to discuss and plan how we can showcase more art and culture in our town and its future developments. I am pleased to report that the first session went extremely well, and I'm optimistic that we will make noteworthy progress in bringing the culture of Chesterfield to its residents and visitors, Just like we do in the magazines. The Shiatsu Bus paid me a visit a recently as I have been struggling with lower back pain for years. After a 60-minute treatment with Dan, I felt relaxed and decompressed. I highly recommend his services! Thanks Dan.
You may notice that it feels slightly heavier than usual. That's because we have printed 56 pages instead of the usual 52!
This is a positive reflection of our town's thriving local, independent business offerings, demonstrating that we are making economic strides when so many of our counterparts are facing challenges. We are doing something right as a town and I cannot thank the businesses in this edition enough for their support and custom. This month's front cover image was taken during one of Paul’s cycling adventures across the Peaks by his friend, Jonathan. I think it would make a rather good print!
As Christmas rapidly approaches, I have created a three-page gift guide so you can purchase all your gifts locally with one of our lovely indie businesses. You are welcome haha! Running a local magazine means we're never short of family activities, especially during the festive season. This edition is jam-packed with local events happening this Christmas, and our calendar is full, with the majority of events being free to attend!
The ticket giveaway this month is for a chance to see Slade, which is rather fitting for this time of the year, don't you think? You’ve got to be in it to win it. Well..that’s all from me.
I hope you enjoy reading the magazine as much as we enjoy creating it. Peace, love, and positivity Simon, Bekah, Eva, and Florie Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 07716 014002

Look Up Words: Paul Chapman Images: Jonathan Nadin
'm always saddened by the number of people I pass on the street, ear buds in, face lit by the blue light from their phone, oblivious to the world around them. 'Look up' I think as I pass, you might be missing a fantastic sunset or two.
This edition's cover image, and the one opposite, were taken on a 30 second photo stop whilst my friend Jonathan and I were on a ride. It's at the top of the bridleway on Stanage Edge and drops across the front of Stanage down to the car park at Hollin Bank. The images are both ones that he took, he's better at photos than me, he's also got a better phone! It has an autumnal feel to it even though it was a month or two ago but it had me thinking. Going for a ride for me is a bit of an escape, yes I like to think I'm helping stay fit but it's also about the downtime.
My son climbs, and in the summer when he's climbing with Team Foundry outside in the Peak District, I tend to load the bike in the van, drop him off and go for a ride.
It puts me in places I'd probably not head and on nights like this it's fab. It's usually quiet as it'll be a Thursday night and I don't set off until most people are heading home. It gives me time to take a look at the world around me, to soak in the colours, the smells, the wildlife, and perhaps most importantly of all, to ignore the screen! If my phone rings or pings when I'm riding I don't tend to look at it, it's not on my bars vying for attention, it's stuffed in my bag, difficult to access and most people have rung off before I get to it! Get out, even if only for 15 minutes, take some deep breaths, leave the distractions behind, but don't forget to look up every now and then. Page 6

It works on the whole person - not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person too. The term shiatsu is composed of two words: 'shi' meaning finger and 'atsu' meaning pressure, the therapist applies comfortable, sustained pressure with their thumbs, fingers, and hands to specific points on the body.

The Woodland Burial Co Join the Good Funeral Guide Words: Paul Chapman Images: The Woodland Burial Co
’m not sure how many of us think about what happens when we’re gone? Do we want a traditional burial in a church yard, do we want our ashes scattered on Arthur Scarfendale, that hill we loved so much 400 miles from home, or do we want to re-join mother earth, resting in quiet woodlands where the birds sing all day and nature wraps itself around us. Granvilles Wood in Walton Woods is a small, secluded woodland that is home to The Woodland Burial Company. Families can purchase nooks of various sizes in the woods at any time and when needed you can be buried or have your ashes interned, the space is yours and families can visit and spend time in the natural space.
"We’re delighted to let people know that we have recently become a member of the Good Funeral Guide," says Beccy Edgar from The Woodland Burial Co. "We are also the first woodland burial ground to be added to the list, it’s a bit like the trusted trader but for funeral providers." "Our approval for the membership has a strong focus on the environment and sustainability, plus the usual service we provide to ensure that families are empowered to choose the options they want for their loved one’s burial." The Woodland Burial Co can provide an end to end service and are happy to work alongside many local funeral directors and to put together a joint plan that fits with individual needs.
Interment of ashes is a popular option, with prices starting from £350 and go up to £1,750 for a family ashes nook which allows up to five sets of ashes and includes a tree planting, with a bench and plaque these nooks are about £2500. Granvilles Wood have space available, and the Woodland Burial Co work carefully in the landscape to ensure that their impact is minimal, indeed, much of what they do encourages animals and plant life back into the woodland.
If this sounds like the way you want to make your minimal mark, give Beccy a call for a walk around the woodlands to soak in the natural environment for yourself. T: 07422 655 116 E: email@example.com W: woodlandburialcompany.com Page 22

The Friendly Face of Financial Advice We catch up with Dom and the team at Sovereign Wealth Words: Paul Chapman Images: Sovereign Wealth
overeign Wealth on Old Road (Ed: I always think it’s Chatsworth Road, but the row of buildings after Barker Lane heading out of town is Old Road) are doing their best to change the face of the Financial Advisor (FAs), to become the friendly face of financial advice.
I’m sat with the Dom in the office, a smooth brew coffee in hand, as always. “We want people to feel relaxed,” says Dom, “we genuinely want to be with people for their journey. It’s important that we know what our clients want, when they want it and how we can support them with their investments and planning to get there.” “People often talk about retirement, and they tend to fit into one of three types. They don’t have enough savings so need to work hard and save, then there are those that are just about right so with careful management they should be able to have a comfortable retirement and then there are those who are well provided for, and it’s strange but the latter group are often afraid to make the break and spend the money!”
“We like to think we offer realistic advice. Often, it’s right for people spend some of their savings, enjoy the money, take a fantastic holiday, help the kids with university fees, house deposits etc. Don’t keep it invested if it’s not right to.” Dom and the team, of five staff and two additional advisors have a suite of client facing software that can be used to create forecasts for retirement and the future. “These tools allow us to really focus on needs,” say Dom. “For instance, the last couple of years Page 26
have seen investments fall, things are recovering slowly now but the tools allow us to see how things are performing, and enable us to ensure people can still take holidays and fund increased living costs without affecting their retirement pot.” “We ensure we understand the situation, people entrust their life savings to us, it’s a massive responsibility. We offer financial plans which allows us be sensible with recommendations and match people’s long-term plans.” Dom talked at length about how they enjoy taking on new clients. “We love to help people onto the road to retirement. So often people have no idea how much they might have and how this might enable a plan that will allow them to retire comfortably. It’s a great sense of achievement and it’s great to be with them for the journey.”
“We have one shot at life, what does it mean for you where do you want to be? What’s your desired lifestyle?” says Dom. Sovereign Wealth can also offer Business services. “The focus here is a little more transactional, we offer succession planning, staff pensions and life insurance services.
“However, as a business owner myself I know how closely our business and personal lives are interlinked. We help establish plans that remove risk from a business, that allow business owners to spread investment, to prepare for selling a business, to step away and retire.” If you run a local business and are considering how you achieve these things team at Sovereign would love to hear from you.
'We love to help people onto the road to retirement' Closer to home Dom has recently become a father, his partner is Jessica from JJ’s Flowers, and he’s looking forward to all that fatherhood brings with it, hopefully a suitable balance of work and life. If you need investment advice or a review of your pension requirements, give Sovereign a call for a fact-finding meeting, maybe that nest egg will enable you to do a lot more than you thought.

Business Intro tracking was going to be the primary focus. Our flagship model fits easily on to a vehicle’s battery and is tracked in real-time using our bespoke software – iTrack Live," says Will.
Track Anything Anywhere Words: Simon Paterson Images: iTrack
nemy of the State, Homeland, and The Wire all come to mind when I hear the word 'tracking.' However, it may surprise you to know that tracking isn't confined to the realm of movies and television.
I met up with local family man Will Sissons at iTrack, situated in The Glass Yard development on Whittington Moor, to discover how tracking can bring significant value to both businesses and individuals. Will’s entrepreneurial flare comes from his dad, after being involved in the family business from an early age. "My dad's business was expanding rapidly, and it became evident that he needed assistance. So, I began working part-time while pursuing my master's degree in engineering. This allowed me to acquire valuable business experience while supporting my father. Once I graduated, I made the transition to full-time work, and I've never looked back," Will recalls with a smile.
Working flexibly with his dad enabled Will to research new products and trends in business. Eventually he came across GPS trackers. "I often showed an interest in new and hot products on wholesale websites, always looking for business opportunities. I then came across trackers, did my due diligence, ordered a sample shipment, and started selling them online. I was later approached by Halfords as they were looking for a vehicle tracker supplier, who invited me to their head office for a meeting. After lengthy negotiations, they agreed to become a retailer for iTrack products. To get a deal with the UK’s biggest motoring accessory retailer was amazing for the company and a partnership I am very proud of," says Will. "In the last few years, the industry has made huge strides in terms of technological advancement." "We started off selling individual trackers, but as the tech advanced it became apparent that fleet Page 30
iTrack’s hardware and software is the best in the business. It isn’t just about tracking a vehicle's location. "Our software is truly remarkable; it provides detailed insights into a driver's behaviour, including harsh acceleration, braking, and cornering. You can even establish a geo-fence with time restrictions, receiving alerts whenever a vehicle breaches a defined boundary or if the tracker becomes disconnected. Additionally, it efficiently manages fuel consumption, cargo temperature, idling times, and vehicle maintenance, notifying you when a vehicle requires servicing or an MOT, for example. Our trackers not only save companies thousands of pounds but also promote environmental and safety consciousness. If you are a fleet manager, a taxi firm, a haulier, or a parent who wants to ensure their teenagers safety, we have the right product for you," explains Will. iTrack has been a resident at the Glass Yard since it opened in January 2022. Acquiring retail office space has enabled Will to create a job and employ a local young man called Josh. "I have really landed on my feet here. Will is a great guy to work with and I am learning a lot from him. My role is so varied; one minute I’m dealing with a potential customer on the phone, the next I’m doing tech support. There is no pressure here and we both play our part," adds Josh. The Caravan Angel is Will's latest product. Will got the idea to develop the product after his brother's caravan was stolen! The Caravan Angel is a dedicated caravan tracking device that can be discretely installed anywhere within the caravan without any obvious sign of installation. With many people opting to store their caravans out of sight and insurance companies reluctant to pay out, they are a fantastic way of knowing if your second family home is safe and secure.
With a range of trackers to accommodate various needs and budgets, coupled with Will's passion for innovation, it's evident that iTrack is poised to become a steadfast independent business, fostering job opportunities, and bolstering the local community for years to come.

Mining heritage of Clay Cross set to be uncovered Words: Neil Anderson media Images: Neil Anderson media
£79,650 grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund is set to explore the rich mining heritage of the Clay Cross area on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the Miners' Strike.
The industry has a history in the area stretching back to Victorian times and was the site of the Parkhouse Colliery mining disaster of 1882, which resulted in the death of 45 men and boys following a gas explosion.
the town and help focus attention on that aspect of its past. It's great to know that we are a step closer to conserving stories and information for future generations and our community to understand its former industrial roots."
Prior to the tragedy, and despite the terrible conditions endured by employees, the colliery was considered one of the safest in the area.
In addition to being a pivotal area during the 1984 strike, Clay Cross played a central role in previous strikes in 1926 and 1912. The grant has been awarded to the Hub, Clay Cross, who will run the multifaceted project that will research and retell the story of the area's mining community. Much of the project will centre around interviews with former workers, many of whom are now in their 70s and 80s, to capture their stories. It will also record the memories of the last generation to work in the local mines, those now in their 50s and 60s who were part of the 1984 strike. The project will document locations that were key to the industry in decades gone by — areas that are now business parks, homes, and retail units with little acknowledgment of their former life.
The two-and-a-half-year project will explore the lives and heritage of former miners, with their recordings turned into podcasts for the wider community to hear. It will pay particular attention to the cultural heritage associated with mining art and music. An exhibition and book from the research will also be produced.
Thanks to National Lottery players, the project aims to deliver a number of activities linked to the local community. The project is due to start this month (September 2023) and finish in March 2026. Commenting on the award, Karen Tait, Managing Director of the Hub, said: "We're delighted that we've received this support thanks to National Lottery players. The community of Clay Cross is going through an important part of the transformation of the town, and with the Levelling Up funds, our project will support the heritage of Page 32

30 Years of Bolsover Lantern Parade
Mark North, Freedom Founder and CEO said: “The Lantern Parade has been an important part of our community for the last 30 years. It has given us a sense of togetherness and excitement and we look forward to Bright Winter Nights and taking in the memories of other members of the Bolsover Community and beyond”
Words & Images: Junction Arts This December will mark the 30th year of the Bolsover Lantern Parade and to celebrate Junction Arts is bringing a new light show to Bolsover Castle! Bright Winter Nights is an immersive light experience that will take place within the walls of the castle on Friday 1st December, the day before the lantern parade. Light projections, images and sounds from the last three decades will bring the castle walls to life, featuring the stories of local people and their lantern parade experiences. Visitors can also view a newly commissioned community film as part of the magical evening, which has been created using stories and memories from local people.
The first Bolsover Lantern Parade took place on Saturday 26th November 1994 as part of the Bolsover Victorian Festival. Organised by Junction Arts in partnership with community partners, the event has become a cultural tradition for generations of people. Growing year-on-year, the Bolsover Lantern Parade is now one of the biggest and oldest light parades in the UK. Bright Winter Nights, The Bolsover Christmas Market and the Bolsover Lantern Parade are all part of the NEW Bolsover Winter Festival – a weekend of festive fun that marks the start of the winter season. More information about all the events taking place can be found on the Visit Bolsover.
The event is being organised in partnership with local Bolsover-based charity, the Freedom Project and English Heritage.
There will be 500 tickets available, which will go on sale later this month, costing £2 per child and £3 for adults. Emily Bowman, Managing Director at Junction Arts said: “Bolsover is very close to our hearts and so we’re delighted to be bringing another exciting event to the town, to mark the 30th year of the lantern parade.
“Bright Winter Nights promises to shine a light on the amazing community spirit and creativity that exists in Bolsover, telling the story of the last three Adevrt magazine x 43mm-HR.pdf decades within theS40 walls of the 132 famous Bolsover 1 Castle.” C

Inspiring the Next Generation! Words & Images: Junction Arts Local arts charity, Junction Arts is giving young people the opportunity to kickstart their creative careers with their exciting Next Gen project!
Next Gen is a free group for 16-24-year-olds who want to pursue a creative career, helping them to develop their creativity and confidence while connecting them with like-minded people and industry experts.
The group meets once a month at West Studios, Chesterfield and takes part in cultural trips and creative workshops. The workshops are led by the member’s interests and delivered by professional practitioners. The group was established in June 2022 and so far, they have attended a premiere at Sheffield Doc Fest and experienced cutting-edge light projections at Shine a Light at Barrow Hill Roundhouse. They have developed new skills, in a variety of art forms, including printmaking, animation, macrame making, acrylic pouring, collage and illustration!
Junction Arts Junior Project Coordinator, Martha Bramwell said: “Working in the creative sector is exciting but also highly competitive, Next Gen provides young people with experience in different fields that they might want to work in and shows them the wide possibilities. Young people also gain new skills, collaborate on projects, and learn from professionals in the arts industry.”
“We are now looking for more young people to join our supportive community, so if you want to be more creative and gain experience in the arts please get in touch.”
To find out more about Next Gen contact martha@ junctionarts.org or call 01246 209219.

AUTUMN GARDENING TIPS Words: Transition Chesterfield Images: Robert Nixon Betts
f you have been organised enough to order bare-rooted trees or shrubs (local nurseries may have some, although the varieties will be limited), they should be delivered sometime this month. Plant them out as soon as possible – it is essential the roots don't dry out, so if you have to keep them for a few days, wrap them in some old sacking or something similar, and (very important) keep them out of the wind. Prune established apple and pear trees; this can be done any time between leaf fall and buds bursting but early winter days are more likely to be mild and pleasant. Aim for an open, wine-glass shape, to allow air to circulate and fruit to form where it will receive maximum light. Many perennials should now be cut down to ground level, although you can leave those with attractive seed-heads if they’ve not been made tatty by the wind – grasses can be particularly effective for a few more weeks, especially if they get frosted, and seed-heads can attract birds. Lawns may still need occasional mowing; keep them clear of fallen leaves and rake out wormcasts. You can also lightly trim hedges to keep them tidy, but don't overdo it otherwise you'll be looking at bare patches all winter. Sow over-wintering vegetables – cabbages, broad beans and peas are just some that will grow much faster in spring if they’ve had the chance to develop roots beforehand. Outside containers should be insulated before it gets consistently cold, by wrapping in bubble-wrap. Do this when it’s mild and not frosty, otherwise you’ll just seal in the frost. Continue to check any bare soil for germinating weeds and deal with them; it's normally easier to get out all of a dandelion root if the soil is wet. Digging over vegetable patches can be quite pleasant if the weather is good, with the possible added bonus of a robin watching to see if you turn up any worms. But try to avoid walking on wet soil, as this will compact it, then you'll need to dig it again. If the birds have left you any holly berries which you want for Christmas decorations, protect them with ﬂeece or a loosely fixed bag. If you have birdfeeders, keep them topped up (and provide fresh water as well); encouraging foraging birds, especially tits, will help deal with overwintering pests and their eggs, as well as being great fun to watch. Mostly the colder months are about planning for next year, looking at catalogues and ordering seeds. No-one can predict what the weather will be like next week, let alone next year, so you'll have to assume it will be a normal summer – if only we knew what that was any more.

So far, so good.
So we win a few games, score loads of goals, get to the top of the league and now every Spireite and their dog starts to preach just how we are gonna smash this league and explode into League Two. That sounds about right but you know what, I feel it too. This is OUR season! Let's reﬂect.
It's 2018. Countless managers have come and gone. Paul Cook is high-ﬂying at Wigan where he (and Grigg) have knocked Manchester City out the FA cup. Chesterfield FC have just been relegated to the depths of the football leagues and the owner of the club is about to sink the club as a result. The rot was setting in and the fans were Page 52
about as happy as the captain of the Titanic just as he spotted the iceberg. Added to this, two CFC legends tried to stop our football league exile. Jack Lester returned to the club to try and save us, which failed. Next came another legend Ian Evatt, to take the wheel for the final games. The death rattle of the club could clearly be heard. But then everything changed. The club was bought by the CFC Community Trust and in came Rowe (we'll gloss over that bit), the club found its footballing feet... and you know the rest from there. So here we are today. Five years later and Cookie is back and doing what he does best. No not that, winning! At the time of writing we've played 15, won 12 and lost just one. But more importantly we are three points clear at the top of the league.
We've just had a seven game winning streak, not seen since the 1960s, so all appears on track for that return to the football league. So why not feel optimistic? Why not just think "sod it!" We've not had a better start to a season for quite some time and who can get sick of the Kop's chants of "we are top of the league" being bellowed in your ears now? Not me. It's also refreshing to see consistency on the field in the goal scoring department. More so not giving up when we go a goal or two behind. We've had at least five goals scored past the 90th minute. The last touching the 100th min mark. Not so long ago the team would have either conceded in the final seconds of the game and or just had given up and settled for the point. No, now Cook and his staff have equipped the players with the "can do attitude" along with the well rounded depth of players in the squad now, including the super subs of Quigley and Berry. The Spireites stand every chance of lifting the National League trophy at home come 20 April next year. Or do we?
Injuries remain an obvious factor along with a possible dip in form come the new year. Everything is all coming along perfectly now, sometimes bound to rock the boat right?
Well the fact does remain that injured players are a possibility and as the past has taught us the National League is an unforgiving mistress. And the refs, don't forget them! But if there's ever been a time to just throw caution to the wind it has to be now. In my book we are favorites to go up and that's good enough for me. We’ve been regulars in the playoffs in the past few years and with the playoff final last season, it seems promising to assume the next step. From the evidence of recent games Cook is not afraid of changing the starting 11 either, and even though I read over social media this is somewhat questionable, it's clearly working. That just goes to show the talent in the team. The depth in the squad that can be called upon when needed. If for nothing else, resting players in-between games for the greater good of the season. Isn't that a nice luxury to have? Yes it’s still early days so let's see how we get on. Let's just enjoy the ride! In Cook we trust. COYBs!
