Intro Hello and welcome to our March edition.

Firstly a huge thanks to Steve Williams, group leader of Chesterfield RSPB and Vice President of Chesterfield Photographic Society, for our fantastic front cover photo of a Mountain Hare. Ok, so the shot wasn’t taken locally but it’s a great shot and it is Easter, so rather topic I thought! It was taken in the Findhorn Valley in Scotland, this fellow popped out of a burrow 30 yards in front of Steve, and sat quite happily while he took his picture. You do find these Hares in the Peak District such as on Derwent Edge. They turn white in winter and go back to their natural brown colour in the spring.

Battle of Chesterfield Celebrations: Sunday 15 May

Robin of Chesterfield? Words: Trevor the Ink Image: Shutterstock


e all know the classic story of Robin Hood. He wore green tights, and was an expert swordsman and archer and skilled with the quarter-staff. He stole from the rich and gave to the poor, and led a band of outlaws that hid in Sherwood Forest. And he was really a nobleman who had been illtreated by bad King John and his scheming henchman, the wily Sheriff of Nottingham, while good King Richard was away on crusade. And whatever tricks the Sheriff tried, Robin and his gang always managed to outsmart him. But did you know that there are local – Derbyshire and Chesterfield – connections to this story? There are, and here's a list. The first connection is Sherwood Forest.

Sherwood simply means the 'Shire Wood’. The shire the name refers to is, of course, Nottinghamshire not Derbyshire. But Sherwood Forest was huge and in medieval times went as far as the River Erewash, inside the Derbyshire border. There it joined up with the Forest of East Derbyshire, which stretched between the Erewash and the River Derwent. Together they formed an immense stretch of land under 'forest law'. Page 4

Basically medieval forests were hunting grounds for the nobility, land where common folk had even fewer rights and liberties than other peasants. Hunting the Lord's game could get you in real trouble, even the death penalty. People took that risk when they were hungry, but if they were found out they had little alternative but to flee and live as outlaws. Forests became notorious for being where the poor and dispossessed would hide out. You have to imagine that an outlaw gang in the great forest wouldn't care much about whether they were in the Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire part. The next local connection with Robin Hood is the Sheriff.

Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire have often been twinned together - think of the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment, the famous Sherwood Foresters of the British Army. This connection goes back ages, and the Sheriff of Nottinghamshire was in medieval times the Sheriff of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. (The city of Nottingham didn’t have its own sheriff till the end of the middle ages.) Actually the Sheriff's full title was 'High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and the Royal Forests'. It was a job with lots of power and High Sheriffs were rich and dangerous men, with influence and possessions across both counties and beyond.

One such baron was John d’Eyvill... (what a name for a villain!). One such man was William Brewer, originally from Devon, who was High Sheriff at the end of the 1100's – the time of King Richard the Lionheart, the good king of many of the Robin Hood tales and films. William seems to have been a shrewd operator, being at various times Justiciar of England (a chief minister), and a Baron of the Exchequer. Where the money was, there was William Brewer: where the power was, there also was William Brewer. You get the idea. When King John succeeded to the throne William moved smoothly to become one of the new monarch's most trusted men and greatest servants. This is really quite impressive when you realise that John had earlier rebelled against his brother King Richard, and that Richard had given William charge of many of John's estates when the rebellion failed. There must have been some interesting conversations when William met the new King. Anyway, William gained a lot of wealth and land right across England while serving King John, and one of his new possessions was Chesterfield. This was granted to him by King John in 1204. The grant is the town's charter establishing our famous market, the annual fair, and the rights of the townsfolk. Histories of Chesterfield often start at this point, and it's interesting to think that our town's charter was due to a man who was one of one of the most competent and cunning ever to be High Sheriff.

The third connection is with no less than Robin himself.

The Robin Hood tales, as known today, are a mix of several sorts of story. One theme found in many stories is Robin as the commoner who turns outlaw, but who has a heart of gold - at least where other down-trodden folk are concerned. Another theme is Robin as an aristocrat in trouble, who joins (and naturally leads) a bunch of outlaws who fight against injustice wherever they find it.

Nowadays it's often thought that the aristocratic version of Robin Hood came later than Robin Hood the commoner. But ‘Robin the aristocrat’ goes back a long way too. In the 1400's a historian called Walter Bower thought that the Robin Hood and Little John stories were about a group of nobles he calls ‘the Disinherited’. These were aristocrats who were on the wrong side of the Baron’s War against King Henry III. They had their lands taken away after losing the Battle of Evesham in 1265, but some of them kept on fighting.

One of the Disinherited was John d’Eyvill (what a name for a villain!). John had land in Sherwood; and he also owned land near Thirsk in Yorkshire where he had his home at a place called Hood. After the defeat at Evesham John, his brother Robert, and others of the Disinherited hid out in Sherwood Forest. They emerged in May 1266 to face a royal army: this led to the Battle of Chesterfield and defeat. After this disaster some of the disinherited went back to Sherwood where they ran wild for many years, but John himself went to the fen country near Ely. In the chaos of the times he was able to join with other like-minded men and they raided villages and towns: Norwich, Cambridge, Lincoln and even London itself. But eventually the government got the upper hand. John calmed down and was able to buy himself a pardon. He became a servant of the crown, fighting for it rather than against it. Were the disinherited nobles the original Merry Men? Was John d’Eyvill of Hood – or his brother Robert– a model for Robin Hood? Outlaws and dispossessed aristocrats, hiding in the local forests from the wrath of the King and his representative in these parts, the High Sheriff; in part brigands; in part fighters for what they saw as justice. It all kind of fits, at least with the ‘Robin the high-born ruffian’ theme that runs through many tales. There are other theories about the origin of Robin Hood – lots and lots of other theories – but it's intriguing to think the original Robin Hood and his Merry Men may have fought at Chesterfield's medieval battle seven hundred and fifty years ago. To learn more about the Battle of Chesterfield, why not pop along to the Winding Wheel, where Peter Gray, one the community organisers of the celebration of the battle, will be giving a talk on Wed 30th March.

Blundells set to Sparkle! 417 Chatsworth Road


Words: Paul Chapman

t’s hard not to spot the new Blundells sales and letting branch on Chatsworth Road which opened in January. The building (previously Nonsolovino) has been completely refurbished, the new bright and airy office being an ideal space in which to showcase their properties for sale and rental. I caught up with the team at the new premises to see how things were going. Jane Riley, branch manager and experienced local property professional, has joined Blundells to manage the new office in addition to the long established office on Glumangate in the town centre.

Jane said “The branch, which is perfectly positioned on Chatsworth Road, will provide local residents with sales and lettings expertise, as well as financial services including mortgage advice and property management for landlords. “After a couple of busy months of preparation, we’re delighted to have opened the doors in January and the hard work is now paying off”

“The branch looks absolutely fantastic and we’ve already started welcoming lots of local residents in.”

Kelly Williams, lettings manager, added, “If you’re looking to move home, or want some advice on letting your property out, drop in for a cup of tea and a chat – Blundells is a company founded on good old fashioned values but with a very modern approach, so we’re always willing to help as much as possible.” Ian Appleyard, director of Blundells, said: “We’ve been in the Town for over 25 years so we’re delighted to have made a move into this part of the town. It’s an exciting time for Blundells and by opening this latest branch here we are reaffirming our place as the region’s leading estate agent, having two offices in the town will offer our customers so much more coverage. “The Chesterfield market so far this year has started extremely positively, whereby we have listed more than double the amount of properties than the same period last year. This is a combination of an uplift in the market and of course the shiny new office.

“Jane, Kelly and their teams have lots of experience under their belt and are really looking forward to working with homemovers across the West of Chesterfield. The branch is opposite Morrisons on Chatsworth Road, which is such a

fantastic and interesting road, please feel free to drop in for a chat and a refreshment, we even have free car parking to the rear!”

Saturday 6 February saw the official opening of the branch with the ribbon cutting ceremony and accompanied by staff from Ashgate Hospice. “We’re delighted and proud to announce a new partnership this year with Ashgate Hospicecare Charity” explains Ian. “They officially opened the branch and at the same time we announced some exciting news that we are their official main sponsor of their biggest event of the year, the newly named ‘Blundells Sparkle Night Walk’ Blundells founded in 1977 and has steadily expanded its network of branches over the last three years. The Chatsworth Road office takes the number of Blundells branches in the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire region to 15.

The property market locally seems buoyant; properties don’t seem to be on the market long before selling. I asked Ian about the strength of the market locally?

“We've always seen a huge demand for stock in the West of Chesterfield, this was one of the reasons for opening our new office on Chatsworth Road. The new office specifically caters for the west side of town therefore enabling us to provide our vendors with a more refined service and introduce buyers whom have registered interest in these select areas. Properties in the local area are selling at a fantastic speed - on average it only takes us several days to secure a sale and in most cases we are achieving at least the asking price and in some cases more which outlines the demand in this part of town”. I also asked Ian if rental is a growth sector and does he think the changes to tax benefits enjoyed by landlords will release properties for purchase over the coming years?

“Rental properties are still as popular as ever and we’ve definitely seen an increase in local landlords making last minute purchases before the new stamp duty tax laws come into force in April of this year. We’ve not seen an influx of properties come back the other way with the changes to tax benefits for landlords but that is some time away with it being gradually introduced from April 2017 so we may see more of an impact over the next few years”. If you are in the market for buying or selling property, renting including landlords services or mortgage advice call in and see the team where I’m sure a warm welcome awaits.

The Lilypad


It's all about the food. Words: Paul Chapman Pictures: The Lilypad

resh, healthy, wholesome, vibrant, nutritional and delightfully presented are the words that I’m sure will spring to mind when you see the dishes produced at The Lilypad café and restaurant. Not perhaps what you would expect from Australian influenced cuisine?

Emi and Iain are the people behind The Lilypad, which opened in November last year, and they’re quickly building their reputation as one of Chesterfield’s alternative food venues.

Emily Chapman and Iain Woodhead are both Chesterfield born and bred but have travelled widely and most recently spent a year working in Australia.

“Our time in Australia taught us that the UK café culture has a long way to go. The chef’s lifestyle there is totally different to that experienced in the UK. Hours are a lot more friendly, they take care of you and the work/life balance is better.” says Iain, “In Australia we experienced contemporary spaces where the emphasis is on great food, which we hope to have created here.”

On my visit to Soresby Street I was shown around the kitchen and was impressed by how well organised it was, a coal fired oven taking pride of place, Iain’s side kick Ryan Purrington preparing food for the breakfast diners waiting. Supervisor Thea Megra Cox, running backwards and forwards with orders, both have been part of the team at Lilypad since day one. So, the food! There’s definitely no deep fat fryer at The Lilypad, everything is freshly prepared in house, the cakes, puddings, sauces, purees, jams and pickles which are, where possible, made using local ingredients.

The menu includes Sough dough Toasts, Eggs anyway you like, Omelette with Baby Figs, Brie, Rocket & Parma Ham, a One Pan Breakfast, Smashed Avocado, House Cured Salmon, Duck Vietnamese Salad, The Reuben; a toasted sandwich with slow cooked salt brisket, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut & mustard mayo, plus fresh Tuna, Steak and Kids Breakfast choices. And on that point there is plenty of space for prams, in fact they had to rush out and buy more highchairs as they’ve been so popular with Mums in the mornings!

It’s clear Iain is passionate about his food, just listening to the way he describes what he does makes me feel hungry! And the small details are really important to him, for instance, tea brewed carefully to the correct time and the bags removed so the second cup isn’t stewed and beautiful coffee art. Page 22

Iain has worked in top flight eateries for the last ten years, including Rowleys at Baslow, The Red Lion at Stonedge and he started out at Lambarellis on Chatsworth Road.

For both Emi and Iain, the time in Australia has been the most influential “I worked in The Kettle Black in Melbourne. From opening in July 2014 The Kettle Black has been a popular destination for Melbourne’s discerning residents looking for great, relaxing, café food. “Whilst there, we were doing 700 covers a day, there was no booking and people regularly queued for tables. I started there one week after I arrived and finished two days before I travelled back to the UK” explained Iain. Emi travelled with him, she’s spent eight years in hospitality working front of house and spent her time in Australia at Two Birds One Stone, another busy café offering breakfast and lunch.

So what made you return to Chesterfield? “We were offered a sponsorship to stay” explained Emi, “but we only went to sample the lifestyle, we always planned to come back. “My parents came out to visit and loved the places we worked; the atmosphere, the food and what we did. They googled properties in Chesterfield and the café on Soresby Street came up. “Shortly after, we travelled back home for Dad’s birthday, landed, came straight to view the property and decided to give it a go.”

“It’s been a bit crazy since we opened up in November.” says Iain “We did 100 covers for breakfast in the first weekend and we’ve recently started opening Saturday evenings, serving an A la Carte menu, together with some carefully selected wines and bottled beers. Feedback has been great (60 five star reviews on facebook), and people are coming back, the Smashed Avocado is really popular, we’re using 150 avocados a week. The local business support is great too, the local solicitors and estate agents are popping in regularly for breakfast and lunch.” If you fancy dropping in to give them a try, The Lilypad can be found at 21 Soresby Street and is open 7 days for breakfast and lunch, 8:30am to 4pm Mon to Fri, Sat 9 am to 4pm as well as Saturday night, 6pm to midnight and Sunday 9am to 3:30pm. Tell them S40 Local sent you!

“The one important thing at The Lily Pad is the food, inspired by Australia, no one is doing what we're doing.” Iain Woodhead, The Lily Pad.

Coming to a council near you. Words: Paul Chapman


ikipedia: Devolution is the statutory granting of powers from the central government of a sovereign state to govern at a subnational level, such as a regional, local, or state level.

This was the focus of a recent Destination Chesterfield presentation. In a nutshell it’s about moving budgetary control from Whitehall to local councils and giving local councils more power to control the way economic development funds are spent and on what!

For Chesterfield it’s complicated as we are currently a member of two areas that are going to have devolved powers. We therefore have a choice, we can go with Sheffield City Region, which is made up of nine local councils, or we can go with Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, now known as the North Midlands, which is made up of 19 councils. Chesterfield has to assess which of these gives us the best long term economic deal.

Each area is supported by a Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). There are 39 LEPs in England, and their role is to decide local economic priorities, bid for funds, undertake activities to drive economic growth, provide skills training and create local jobs.

Sheffield City Region’s LEP secured a £320M Growth Deal and in January 2015 a further £30M for Growth Deal 2 (ref: In addition they have secured a deal of £900M for the next 30 years which is tabled and under consideration. If Chesterfield opted to be part of the Sheffield City Region, they would in turn bid for a share of these funds to support local developments. The Sheffield City Region is made up of nine councils; four are fully constituted members, which means they will have an elected mayor with power to control spend in their area, and five will be none constituent members, Chesterfield would be a none constituent member, without a an elected mayor, but will be able to apply for constituent status. Page 30

The North Midlands regional bid covers Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (previously D2N2) and is made up of 19 local councils, hoping to create a single combined authority. Supporting the North Midlands is one of the country’s largest LEPs, who were allocated a £192M pot (ref: in January 2015 and are now bidding for £900M for the next thirty years. So What Are The Timescales?

John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council with portfolio responsibility for Regeneration and previous Vice Chair of Destination Chesterfield, commented "on March 3 this year a full public council meeting will debate and decide our status in both LEP areas, on the basis of the best economic deal for Chesterfield." Any changes and devolved powers would not come into play until 2017 at the earliest. Many people won’t be aware of the change, and the importance of bringing control of our future closer to hand, many might not care but it will effect the way in which our area's economy is developed.

I hope moving forward it will be to our benefit and next month we will endeavour to update you with further details on the decision and what it will mean for our economy. Find out more at the sites below.

Fairtrade Fortnight Breakfast Choosing to fight poverty Words: Nicola Chapman


oes choosing fair trade still feature in your shopping decision making process? For me, it’s something I consciously considered when shopping 15 to 20 years ago, but as the media moved onto 5 a day, eating organic and now eat well for less, I’m quite surprised and a little annoyed at how my choices have so clearly followed suit.

“Unfair trade causes many people around the world to be poor and hungry. It affects a significant proportion of farmers and their workers, particularly in developing countries. Despite working hard and producing quality food or other products, many of which are luxury goods, for the developing world, they don’t get paid fairly for their products.

For people who are struggling to make ends meet, making food choices might be a luxury, but for people who are not in that position perhaps it’s time to consider making a few small changes to the way we shop and swapping one or more of our usual choices for a fairly traded product.

Alison and Graham are our local Traidcraft volunteers and provide a sales network. They have a regular stall at St Thomas’ Food Market – advertised in our What’s On section and have a stall at the Sunday services at St Thomas’ the day after the Food Market. They also place weekly bulk orders for the stall and for people who order products from the Traidcraft catalogues (you can pick catalogues up from the food fair, St Thomas café or contact Graham and Alison –

With Fairtrade Fortnight starting on 29 February, we caught up with local voluntary Traidcraft representatives, Alison and Graham Wells to understand why it’s important, how they are involved and how the food choices we make have an impact that’s far wider reaching than we often think.

Graham explained “Alison has always been passionate about poverty and injustice in the world and first got involved with Traidcraft during its infancy. I became involved through Alison.

“Traidcraft was the first major fair trade organisation set up in the UK, to fight poverty through trade, working worldwide with local small producers, to produce good quality products that they market and sell through a network of fair traders, individuals who sell these on locally, and to some retailers.”

Article for one). They also ‘lend’ their stall to other churches in the area, St John’s at Walton, Central Methodist Church and Hasland Methodist Church, plus some one-off requests. Through Alison and Graham you can buy a range of foods, including; coffee, tea, chocolate, cereals, dried fruit, nuts, olive oil, they also sell a selection of greetings cards, children’s toys, crafts and, a favourite, bamboo socks – much softer than they sound! Easter Eggs are now available through Traidcraft – one is the Divine Chocolate Fairtrade egg and the other is the REAL Easter Egg, an Easter egg that also contains the story of Easter. Alison and Graham are taking orders now!

Traidcraft is just one of many organisations working towards fair trade, defined as upholding the principles of: •

fair prices

environmentally sustainable

safe working practices

All fairtrade products display the Fairtrade mark, making it easy for you to recognise that you’re choosing a product produced ethically. This mark has been developed and is overseen by The Fairtrade Foundation, in the UK, one of a number of worldwide organisations who take responsibility for development of Fair trade around the world. To support the suppliers there needs to be sufficient demand, there are people working with producers to make sure they produce high quality products, efficiently, and at the other end they are promoting the products and encouraging more and more people to make ethical shopping choices. Fairtrade Fortnight aims to do just that – running from 29 Feb to 13 March, the campaign this year encourages you to enjoy and share a Fairtrade Breakfast! Buying and trying fairly traded tea, coffee, jam, fresh juice, honey, cereals etc. to think about fair trade and hopefully to change some of your regular shopping choices.

Page 38

During Fairtrade fortnight you can buy your fairtrade breakfast products from the Fairtrade stall set up in St Thomas’ on Friday 4 March and the following day at their regular stall at the Brampton Food Market, also at St Thomas’.

The Fairtrade foundation work with the other organisations, including Traidcraft, Oxfam, and Christian Aid, all working hard to improve the situation for those less fortunate than ourselves… simply purchasing a few Fairtrade products helps support this vital work around the world.

Tudor Chesterfield

The campaign to save our B&W buildings Words & Pictures: Andrew Hollyer


ne of the big attractions of Chesterfield town centre, for me, along with the Spire and the market, is the extensive range of black and white buildings. Whilst they are not Tudor, which they’re sometimes mistaken for, they nevertheless still have a very interesting history and help make Chesterfield the place it is. Excluding the medieval timber framed buildings in the town centre (such as the Peacock café and the Royal Oak pub) the buildings date back to the 1910s when a comprehensive programme of street improvements to address issues caused by the old medieval street pattern were first put in place. Most of the black and white buildings date to the 1920s

Page 42

and 1930s when a large amount of rebuilding was needed as old buildings were demolished to widen streets. The town of Chester is believed to have provided the inspiration for the colonnades along Knifesmithgate and possibly the black and white design as well. There are now about 45 black and white buildings in the town centre, with the most obvious ones being the old Co-op building frontage and the Victoria Centre on Knifesmithgate and the Winding Wheel on Holywell Street. However, some of the buildings are now in a very poor state, most obviously the Victoria Centre itself. Above the ground floor veranda, large spaces have appeared where plaster has fallen off and there are badly rotting window

frames and broken glass. Less immediately visible is the internal damage, where water has seeped in and rusted the metal work, which causes it to expand and crack some of the stone pillars. The building has attracted vandalism, graffiti and other anti-social behaviour too. The town cannot let this happen to these special buildings - but often the owners live far away and don't want to spend money. So what can be done? Just before Christmas 2015 I started a campaign to raise awareness and show support for action, thinking that it would make a good 2016 New Year’s Resolution for the town – to find a way of securing the long term future for these buildings. I started a Facebook page (Save Chesterfield's Black and White Buildings), which now has over 750 likes and began a petition (please sign at bkwh), which once it reaches 1,000, will trigger a Council debate. This would be a great opportunity to have some of the broader issues discussed and demonstrate to the owners of the buildings how important they are locally. Although Chesterfield Council doesn't own the neglected buildings, and has limited powers, it does, I think, have a role to play in co-ordinating action to make sure the necessary steps are taken to ensure the buildings are maintained. The main power they have is to be able to bring different interests together - businesses, the public sector and individual members of the public – and get them to talk in order to find ways to progress. If, ultimately, the owners don't meet their responsibility to look after these buildings then the Council should be making every effort to try and make sure they do. As a last resort, the Council can also, when it believes that the state of a property is having a seriously

negative impact on the amenity of the area, request the property owners take remedial action. There are good examples locally where Council action and responsible ownership have really improved things. A few years ago, for example, the Council was able to win Heritage Lottery funding then offer it to owners who were willing to put their own funding in to improve their heritage buildings. The Ashoka Restaurant on Holywell Street is a good example of this. And coming up soon the Co-op building is set to be redeveloped, keeping many of the key features - another good illustration of what can be done. So it is possible, but there needs a coordinated, holistic approach, which only the Council can provide. More information on the black and white buildings can be found at the Chesterfield Museum exhibition which runs until March 12th and there will be a talk given on the buildings by local historian Janet Murphy on the 16th March, at the Winding Wheel.

It’s the perfect place for the smaller intimate wedding ceremony or wedding breakfast, birthday, anniversary, christening or anything in between.

Marcella and her team are happy to discuss your requirements trying their best to make it personal not packaged.

1st Class Kitchens New Bespoke Burbidge Range New in at 1st Class Kitchens is a range of bespoke kitchen units from Burbidge. The top of the range Langton is on display in the Walton showroom.

The Langton is real wood and can be supplied hand painted to any of 25 shades plus if there isn't one for you the units can be hand finished to any colour. This will increase the lead time but you do receive a sample hand sprayed (not machined) as required and once approved your units are painted ready for installation.

They will be holding a Weddings & Celebrations Fair on Sunday 20th March 11am to 4pm where you will be able to come along and meet the best local suppliers who will be showcasing everything to make your day special. 19 Old Road, Chesterfield S40 2RE Tel 01246 768789 E:

The classic design uses an 'in frame system' where the carcass is installed and then front frames fitted to each unit replacing pelmets but resulting in a traditional finish that wouldn't look out of place in any country house kitchen or modern contemporary open plan living space. The paint is guaranteed tough and hard wearing with a lacquer applied to the whole finished product so it stands up to the daily wear and tear a kitchen gets.

In addition the 1st Class Kitchen web site has been updated recently to include links to the Colourmyway kitchen configurator. This allows you to pick stock kitchen designs and tailor the colour scheme to your preferred choices so you can see what your designs will look like prior to visiting the showroom and walking through your ideal solution.

Broader band anyone? Unleash the green boxes. Does anyone know anything about Broadband? I've been asked by a resident about the green boxes and why some in the area can get fibre broadband and some cant. Apparently the green cabinet outside the phone exchange on the corner of Westbrook Drive is wired up for fibre but at the moment no one gets it! With download speeds of 7080mbs and upload speeds of 12-16mbs (still some way off the 1Gb enjoyed by parts of Asia... why is that I wonder?) it should allow the kids to play games with their mates, Mum to listen to spotify and Dad to stream the iPlayer all with decent response. More importantly it might just enable one or two local small businesses to do what we do, faster and more efficiently. So come on, what needs to be done to open up these services to those that want them? Anyone know? Drop us an email.

Brampton Bicycle Club Retstarts In Spring It's been a while now since the club stopped meeting but due to fading light and no real indoor option unfortunately we had no choice. Well get you chain oiled and tyres pumped up as the club will be back again after Easter.

Kip McGrath tip No.3. Improving your Child's Reading Comprehension Jo Linthwaite (Kip McGrath) Often students get overwhelmed with information, don’t understand some of the words and misread the questions when faced with a reading comprehension exercise. Using our tips you can tutor your own child to: 1. Read the title and take a minute to imagine what the text is going to be about. This is like priming a pump and allows the brain to think about the type of words it is going to see. The process is known as ‘activating schemata’ and uses our knowledge of the world around us to understand the text. So a title such as ‘Dear Diary’ will have us expecting to see something about someone’s daily activities.

6. Once the answer has been found, students can underline it or highlight in a different colour. Should they need to look back at it again, for a spelling for example, they will be able to see it quickly and won’t have to go through the whole thing again.

2. Highlight and read the first sentence of each paragraph. This gives the main theme of each paragraph and allows us to see the overall thread of the text.

7. As they come across words they don’t understand, we encourage them to guess the meaning from the context or logic of the situation. So if the man feels ‘disburbulated’ because his car has been stolen, the children can guess that he’s feeling angry or upset. I love making up words for them to practise on!

3. Look at the first question and highlight the key words; they are the question word itself (who, when, where, why etc.), the verb and nouns. This makes it easier for students to understand the meaning of the question and helps to prevent them answering a question that’s not really there!

8. Often learners struggle to put their answers into sentences. We help them to get started by looking back at the question and using this as the basis for their answer. For example: Q When did Jim start to cook his dinner? A Jim started to cook his dinner at…

4. Using the highlighted sentences, students can look back at the text and find the paragraph that is likely to contain the answer they’re looking for.

9. All these steps have the aim of allowing the children to feel in control and give them the confidence to have a go.

5. By reading the text paragraph by paragraph they give their brains time to process the meaning of the text in manageable chunks.

10. As they continue to work through the text, the details begin to become clearer and the pieces of the jigsaw fall into place.

So off you go to buy some multi coloured highlighter pens and get your child started on the road to an ‘A’ in reading comprehension!

Chesterfield Art Trail Art In The Open Words: Paul Chapman Photos: Courtesy of Mike Taylor


ver recent years new significant developments within our town have been required to offer community support in the form of a public art installation.

The Growth, Melanie Jackson's work on Hornsbridge Roundabout, and the Spirit of Saltergate project commemorating the old Chesterfield FC ground are examples we've previously covered in S40 Local. But these are not the only public art projects in and around town, Chesterfield has over 60 works of art that have sprung up all round the Borough in the past few years. From Walton to Whittington, from Staveley to Spital over three dozen artists have used their vision to enhance the environment. Over the next few years there will be more to come, with another dozen schemes planned. Within our immediate area there are six pieces on display, you may walk past them everyday and perhaps not realised why they are there or where they came from.

1 Runaway Foxbrook Drive on Walton Artist: Graham Ibbeson Date Built: 1998 2 The Orienteer Bradbury Place Artist: Stuart Marsh Date Built: 2007 3 Clock Wheatbridge Retail Park Artist: Davidson and Richardson Date Built: 1996 4 Flyer Foxbrook Court, Walton Artist: Graham Ibbeson Date Built: 2000 Page 54

5 No Man Is An Island Walton: Whitecotes Park Artist: Rod Powell Date Built: 1997 Reflection of the Sky Wheatbridge Surgery Artist: Ashley Thompson Date Built: 2008 If you look on the website at www.,there's a detailed map showing the location of the artworks, including the location of some of the planned future schemes. Dr Robert Burstow, an art historian based at the University of Derby, has provided detailed descriptions of all the artworks on the Art Trail. He is currently leading a research project on the public sculpture of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, for the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association’s National Recording Project. Why not make it your mission do discover some of the 60 pieces of art over the coming year?

"schemes costing over ÂŁ1m to include a work of art to the value of 1% of the total cost of the project." Percent for Art Artwork details and location can be found at:



Percent for Art The scheme called Percent for Art demonstrates the Borough Council's commitment and support for public art. This planning practice brings cultural, environmental and economic benefits to new developments and to the local community.

For planning schemes over 拢1 million, the Chesterfield Borough Local Plan invites developers to include works of art to the value of 1% of the total cost of the project. The artist is chosen by the developer and the Council. A small group of Council members has been the driving force behind the Percent for Art policy. The success of the scheme is due to their enthusiasm for, and close personal involvement with, the policy.


Developer's View John Coleman, Development Manager for William Davis Ltd the developer of two major residential sites, said "the Percent for Art scheme continues to be an excellent experience for me and provides our new housing site with unique features admired by staff and residents alike."


Artist's View Richard Swain, artist for the Redevelopment of the former Scarsdale hospital site, said "I am very pleased with the way my vision for the artwork has been supported by the housing developer giving it pride of place at the main entrance."

Councillor Terry Gilby's View "I am really pleased this scheme has enabled developers and artists to work so well together to create artworks that are truly unique. I believe they will enrich the character of Chesterfield and help attract more visitors to the town."

Garden Things for March

Words: Transition Chesterfield Pictures: Robert Nixon Betts

Page 56

1. 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, which could affect 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. 2. 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. 3. 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, too. It is the time to buy and plant out young plants of thyme, sage and rosemary too. 4. 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. 5. Seeds to sow indoors in March 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 a hold by regular weeding. At the same time you can prepare beds by lightly digging them over, incorporating any compost you have. 6. Dead head daffodils, letting the foliage die down naturally, then removing it when it starts to turn yellow. This is when the bulbs reserves of energy are restored, and it prepares for next year - tying it up prevents this happening efficiently, and doesn’t look nice. 7. 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. 8. 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, copper bands) but, whatever you do, you’ll never entirely be rid of them, so concentrate your efforts on precious plants and small areas. 9. 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 sort makes a big difference. 10. 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.
