elebrate with us 750 years since the Battle of Chesterfield on Sunday 15 May 2016.


Intro Hello and welcome to the May edition of S40 Local. In this edition we’ve dedicated four pages to the 15 May celebration of the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Chesterfield, which includes a crib sheet for you about the battle to get up to speed! Over the last year we’ve been supporting the organisers with articles about the history, updates on the event and sponsorship. The team are all volunteers and have put in an incredible amount of work and time to plan a day they hope you will enjoy, and to mark the occasion in a memorable way. So please go along and support the event. Another community event in the local calendar is the Chatsworth Road Festival, from Friday 30 September to Sunday 2 October. The committee (again all volunteers) are already gearing up to celebrate all that's good about living and working on and around Chatsworth Road: if you would like to get involved please do get in touch.

(Sunday 2 October) so the town will be full of activity. A really positive and exciting prospect and a great opportunity for businesses to host events and promotions and for people in the area to get out, meet neighbours and friends, and enjoy a celebration. Finally, we do have a winner of last month’s crossword competition; unfortunately I can't print their name as there was no phone number on the entry, so I need to pop round to their house to let them know first! Thank you to everyone who did enter and apologies for the two errors, we've checked and rechecked this month and it's OK! If you fancy winning a crisp £20 note have a go at the crossword on page 74. We’ve got two bank holidays to enjoy this month and there’s plenty going on, so I hope to see you at some of the events.​ Paul. t: 07764 801080 e:

The Battle of Chesterfield Your Guide to 15 May Words: Trevor the Ink

When was the Battle of Chesterfield fought?

The Second Barons' War. Which lasted from 1264 to 1267.

One of the resentful barons was the Earl of Leicester, Simon de Montfort. Simon and his allies were eventually able to force the King, under oath, to sign away some of the King’s royal rights. But Henry got the Pope to let him off the oath, and both sides raised armies and a fight began: the Second Barons’ War.

Who was fighting in the war?

Why were they fighting at Chesterfield?

Basically it was King Henry III and his allies, fighting against a group of his great lords and their allies.

In 1265 the barons lost the major battle of the war, at Evesham, where they were thoroughly defeated by the King's son

On May 15th 1266. Seven hundred and fifty years ago this year. Which war was the battle part of?

Why were they fighting a war? The clue is in the name: Second Barons' War. The barons were trying to limit the King's authority. Rewinding back a generation, King John (brother and successor to King Richard the Lionheart) had been forced by the barons to give up many of his rights. The agreement between the King and the barons was called the Magna Carta, signed in 1215. (You may remember the 800 year anniversary last year.) It meant the King was now subject to the law, instead of being above it. But King John had agreed to the Magna Carta under duress, and as soon as the pressure was off he started to cheat on the deal. This led to a rebellion by the barons - the First Barons’ War (1215-17). This war ended when King John died and the crown passed to his 10 year old son, King Henry III. A shorter version of the Magna Carta was reissued and there was peace for a while. But young Henry grew up and started to assert himself. Like his dad, he ignored clauses in the Magna Carta he didn't like, and like with his dad, this made the barons resentful. The King was able to keep things under control for a good while, but the situation finally got out of hand.

The men of Brampton were responsible for a section of wall by the churchyard – and in the battle that's where they went and 'would not suffer any others to come thither'. Edward. (Edward, aka 'long shanks', was later to become King Edward I, Hammer of the Scots – the English King in the film 'Braveheart'.) Simon de Montfort was killed in the fight and his allies were scattered. One of the major rebels was Robert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby. After Evesham he got his allies and supporters together at his stronghold at Duffield, one of England's largest castles. They formed an army there. Another rebel, John d'Eyvil, set off from York bringing more forces to join de Ferrers. The King learnt of this and he sent his nephew, Henry of Almain, with an army to sort the rebels out. Henry's army seems to have been moving to intercept d'Eyvil's forces on their way south, before they could join up with de Ferrers. But meanwhile de Ferrers' men had moved north to Chesterfield to meet d’Eyvil. The three forces met at Chesterfield.

Repair full hastily to Chesterfield upon the 15th day of May. To

Given under the seal of Baldwin Wake, Lord of the Manor of Chesterfield.

(As channelled by S40Local.)


Translation into modern English: to New Square in the Market (the Dent’s end – which used

to be called Swine’s Green in days of yore) on Sunday 15th May

there to begin a day of music and amusements. Starts at 1 1:00.

Get the kids to dress up as medieval people (think Robin Hood) and witness the trial by combat at 13:30, and other event and attractions.

Celebrate one of our town’s claims to history!

Article Who fought in the battle? On the King's side there was Henry of Almain, who as well as being nephew of King Henry, was nephew of Simon de Montfort. With Henry there was also John de Warenne, Earl of Surrey. Both Henry and de Warenne had wavered in the their support for the King: John de Warenne had actually switched sides twice. Chief of the barons' side was Robert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby. He had been given a pardon and released by the King after the battle of Evesham, but he reneged and quickly became a rebel again. On the barons' side were Baldwin Wake, who was Lord of Bourne in south Lincolnshire. His family had inherited lands around Chesterfield and so he was also lord of Chesterfield.


Also on the barons’ side was John d'Eyvil, a knight with lands in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. Other names of rebels are Henry of Hastings, Sir George Caldwell, Sir John Clinton, Sir Roger Mandevil and Sir Richard Caldwell.

rebel that seems to have been captured. One story is that he was caught hiding under bales of wool in the church. Later versions say he was unable to get away because of gout, and was betrayed by a local woman. Earlier versions just say he was taken 'ignobly'. He was put in irons and taken to imprisonment at Windsor. One of Chesterfield's historical puzzles is whether it had any real walls in medieval times. There's evidence that there were walls in previous times, and a town our size would probably have had some defences, but quite where they were and how good they were is not really known. However it's said that the men of Brampton were responsible for a section of wall by the churchyard – and that in the battle that's where they went and they 'would not suffer any others to come thither'. Hard to know what that means. Was this part of a town wall? Was it just a low churchyard wall they looked after? Brampton (now known as Old Brampton) buried its dead at Chesterfield St Mary’s, and therefore had an area of the churchyard to themselves. Either way the Brampton men seem to have stuck together during the fight.

Chesterfield Who won?

The King's side won. But a lot of rebels got away. What happened in the battle?

We're not really sure! We have some snapshots of the battle rather than a full report. The King's men seemed to have surprised the rebels, some of whom were out hunting. According to one story the hunting party was attacked and there was a fight; according to another version the hunting party simply heard that the King's army was attacking the town and disappeared into the woods.


The attack on the town itself seems to have involved the use of covered wagons. It's not clear if these were used to sneak men into the town, or were used as protection when assaulting the defences. The King's men took the town and slaughtered many rebels. Somehow John d'Eyvil and a group of rebels managed to fight their way out, with d’Eyvil charging and unhorsing Gilbert Haunsard using a lance. Robert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, was caught by the King's men - the only major

What happened next? John d'Eyvil escaped and continued fighting and raiding for years – as much a brigand as a rebel. Baldwin Wake did likewise, and his lands, including Chesterfield were confiscated. But after a while he surrendered to the King and asked for pardon and his lands were restored. Robert de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, forfeited his lands to the King’s son Edmund and his great castle at Duffield was pulled down so completely that its site was forgotten till it was rediscovered in the nineteenth century. De Ferrers was left with only a couple of manors and his family’s wealth and power were gone forever. Where there other battles in Chesterfield? Old books mention a battle by Lorsdmill Bridge, supposedly between Saxons and Danes, which was the origin of the place name "Dane's Yard". But people now think that this was really the “Dean's Yard” (a lot of local land was owned by the Dean of Lincoln), which is a much more likely origin. So, no, not really.

Two great new musicals from Peak Performance come to the Pomegranate Theatre. Peak Youth celebrates the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with a new production, Alice the Musical. Rev. Dodgson (the real Lewis Carroll) befriends young Alice who begs him to tell her a story. Out of the blue, a white rabbit hops past and the stage is filled with a variety of animals. As the story continues, Alice comes across a very uncooperative caterpillar who provides her with a magic mushroom to make her taller or shorter. Alice now approaches the duchess’s kitchen complete with a mad, grinning Cheshire Cat. The march Hare, Hatter and Dormouse settle down to a tea party but refuse to let Alice take tea. The Queen arrives but all she is interested in is her daily game of croquet. We meet all the familiar characters plus many new ones. The story ends with everyone disappearing and Alice alone on stage with Rev. Dodgson. 22 musical numbers including a barn dance, a waltz, a rap number and a quadrille ensure everyone is involved. Music is under the direction of Jon Davies with the choreography by Kaye Gilbert and Mike Spriggs takes charge of the production of the show. All tickets £10.

Dolly Levi sets the scene on a whirlwind race around New York at the turn of the century. Hello Dolly is the story of Dolly’s efforts to marry Horace Vandergelder, the well known half-millionaire, so that she can send his money circulating like rainwater as her late husband Ephraim taught her. On the way she succeeds in matching widow Mrs Molloy with Vandergelder’s head clerk Cornelius Hackle, and his assistant Barnaby to Minnie, who works in Mrs Molloy’s hat shop. They all get caught up in the great 14th Street Association Parade and then to the most expensive restaurant in town, The Harmonia gardens. Dolly is greeted by waiters in one of the most famous songs in musical comedy, ‘Hello Dolly’. With toe-tapping numbers throughout the show including ‘Put on Your Sunday Clothes’ and ‘Before the Parade Passes By’, a full orchestra, lavish sets and stunning costumes this promises to be a show to remember. All tickets £12.50.

A Club fit for a Prince

We chat with Stephen Prince the new custodian of Princes Sports Club, previously Brampton Manor Sports Club. Words: Paul Chapman


hysical Exercise plays an important part in your health and well-being, stimulating your body’s natural maintenance and repair system.

Fitting exercise into your daily life can be a challenge but with Princes Sports Club in the heart of the area, the facilities and the opportunity to exercise are within easy reach. Stephen Prince explains the other benefits of Princes “we’re different to mainstream gyms, more user friendly, relaxed and perhaps a little less competitive than others. Our female and older members love the place and appreciate the atmosphere, they feel comfortable and welcome. Being open 100 hours a week means different groups of people occupy the spaces throughout the day and at times to suit their schedules.” Stephen is the sole owner and formerly a member of Brampton Manor. He joined six years ago, and when Craig Lynch was looking at options for splitting the leisure business from the pub/ restaurant and beauty business, Stephen took over the leisure reins. “The name change was crucial and a club fit for a Prince – Princes – seemed ideal" he adds. Stephen inherited the staff, many of whom still run Princes Sports Club but he is also on hand every day to make sure things are ticking over nicely. Two key members of the team are Fai Purdy taking care of membership and Angie Preece, gym and studio manager. “The club’s a long term project for me and I set about making investments in the club and the building so it can run in future years. “I wasn’t looking to make huge changes, it was about freshening the place up and making sure everything worked as it should. We’ve drained and retiled parts of the swimming pool, installed a new sauna, updated the pool changing rooms and reestablishing an open family changing area. “We’ve replaced virtually all the equipment in the gym and cardio area, are refurbishing the 24

Page 24

spin bikes in the dedicated spinning room, in the squash courts we've laid new floors, replastered and installed glass doors. We’ve fixed the long standing roof leaks and installed a new gas supply to the squash court heaters" outlines Stephen. “Many of the club’s members have been with the club for years, we have families with three generations at the club. It’s a way of life for many, nipping in for a swim, spinning first thing in the morning, coffee in The Manor afterwards, the social side features as much as the exercise benefits. “We’ve around 1000 members and plenty of room for more. Some members use the same facilities every time they come, I’ve spoken to people who play squash regularly who didn’t know about the exercise studios or the dedicated spin room” says Stephen.

"Many of the clubs members have been with the club for years, it becomes a way of life" Stephen Prince. “If people want to take a look around we’re always willing to help and often what they think will be a five minute job lasts 45 minutes, they’re amazed by what they find, we like to think there is something for everyone.” The days at Princes tend to start with the early morning pre-work / school workouts, we have two or three classes in the studio, a spin session, early squash and the morning swimmers, “people are often waiting for us to open at 6am” Stephen explains. Things then quieten down and the members arrive around 10-11am for the morning pilates and yoga etc, and mothers taking advantage of the places in the crèche.

We get busy again around lunchtime with people taking squash courts and spin sessions, quieten down around mid-afternoon before the afterschool kids arrive and swimming lessons begin. Into the evening you get people after work coming again for classes, swimming and squash. So with the necessary repairs and maintenance taken care of, what are the plans for the future? “Things are progressing well, I have ideas around expanding the pool facilities, for the club to be a visitor attraction bringing people through the doors and we have plans to bring the outside areas back to life and to make us more cycle friendly.” If you fancy a try at Princes they offer day passes and are holding an Open Weekend over the May Bank Holiday at the end of May (Sun 29 and Mon 30, see advert overleaf for details). It might be the first step that makes regular exercise a part of your daily life. And that’s Stephen Prince's ultimate goal - Princes being part of your health schedule and greeting you as you call in each day. Princes Sports Club 107 Old Road S40 3QT

t John’s Walton has been a work in progress since the late 1880’s when the people of Walton attended services in a room loaned by Mrs J B Jebb of Walton Lodge, the widow of a former rector of St Thomas’ Church Brampton. This room served them well until, in 1888, two cottages at the corner of Walton Back Lane and the Chesterfield – Matlock turnpike road were acquired and altered to form a new daughter mission church within the parish of St Thomas’. On a blustery, wet Whit Sunday in 1889, St John’s was born and remained there until it was replaced by the new Walton Mission Church building on the opposite corner of

Walton Back Lane in 1916 at a cost of £762 13s 8d (around £400,000 today). The original cottage church was demolished for road widening in 1938. The new church building contained a beautiful, and some might say poignant, stained glass window. It was located at the chancel end of the church and was subsequently relocated to our present church building. The window was unveiled in 1918 and is a rare example of a window dedicated to a soldier killed in action. It commemorates Cptn William Mather Brabazon Jackson who served with the Sherwood Foresters and died in 1917 aged just 23. In 1946 there was light – literally – electric light. Before this the church was lit by oil lamps and torches. In 1958 the addition of a central heating system meant no more shivering near the coal fired boiler. Even so, the warmest place to be was standing near

one of the butane heaters at the back of church. A warm building it definitely was not! In the 1960’s there was a decline in numbers and morning services were reduced to one per month. In the 1970's there was, happily, a revival which probably coincided with the newly expanding housing estate in Walton. People started to trickle back to church and, in 1979, the weekly Sunday morning service was reinstated. 1983 saw the introduction of a monthly family service and a Mums and Toddlers service. As a result of increasing numbers of young families with children now attending, a building fund was started by the newly formed Church District Council which raised the £12,950 needed to add a porch, small kitchen, vestry and toilet to the growing church. An appeal was subsequently made to 1,246 households living within a mile of the church for donations towards the cost of furniture and fittings. This was well supported and total of £2,117.00 was realised. Bishop Cyril of Derby attended the service of thanksgiving for the completion of building works in October 1985. 1988 was an interesting year for the very popular children’s service, Carols Around the Crib. That Christmas Eve Canon John Rollinson inadvertently gave a whole new meaning to “Shine, Jesus, Shine”. The church was packed with children and parents, some even standing in the choir stalls and on the chancel steps. Cannon Rollinson was surrounded and managed to reverse into the newly acquired calor gas heater. Yes, dear reader, you know what

centre. Following discussions with architects and builders, it was agreed that the little church must be taken down and a new building be erected. The last service in the little mission church was held on Sunday 27th February 2005 and careful dismantling of the building started the next day. Building work began on 4th April and the next phase in our church life had begun.

commissioned to do the work. On a warm evening in June, the commemorative stone was laid by Joe Ward a long time member of the church. Five months later Bishop Peter led the dedication ceremony on 22nd November and declared the building open. 1996 welcomed Rev Andy Broom as Curate in Charge. Andy is fondly remembered for many things, not least of which is never being at a loss for words. When, at his welcome ceremony he was happens next. His robes burst into flames and several of the parents rushed to the rescue. Happily, the only damage was to his robes which showed the outline of the flames running up his back. Canon Rollinson survived unscathed and the children thought it was great fun. Despite requests from his excited audience to repeat the performance, he declined. 1992 saw our little church absolutely full to capacity as a result of an ever increasing congregation and the need to accommodate a thriving Sunday Club for young people. Following a parish wide day of prayer a decision was reached to build the church centre. With much prayer and two amazing “gift days” a total of £250,000 was raised and Tom Stockton, a builder from Holymoorside, was

How right he was, for the onset of the new millennium in 2000 was marked, not only by a further growth in numbers attending but as a result of this, Walton became a parish in its own right – the first new parish to be created in the millennium. 2005 saw continued growth which meant that the little mission church was about to change beyond our wildest imaginings. After much prayer it was decided to extend the church and church

2006 saw the opening of the new church in July by Bishop Alistair of Derby. What a beautiful building it is with a contemporary stained glass chancel window designed by Rona Moody and other important fixtures designed and made or purchased by members of the congregation or local crafts people. The welcoming interior reflects the beauty and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. We were not, however, finished. The final phase of our development comprised two meeting rooms, a crèche room, a much enlarged and better equipped kitchen, office space and an atrium joining up these rooms with the church. All of this work was completed in June 2010 and was mainly funded by several years of pledges from the congregation, plus a grant of £16,000 from Viridor and a few pledges from our local community. The cost of the total project, including the church, was a little over £1m – a bit different to the figures in 1916! Over the years God has built an exceedingly busy church on this site with two Sunday services at 9am and 10.45am, a Tuesday service at 11.30 am and various groups serving the community for toddlers, children, young people, men, women and seniors. This year we are celebrating 100 years of worship on the site with events throughout the year for church members and the community. All of us at St John’s pray that future generations will continue to take God’s work forward in our community from this church over the next 100 years and beyond. A little church that, like Topsy, just grew and grew.

09.05.15 to 09.05.16 Celebrating a year at 338 Chatsworth Road Words: Paul Chapman

I love the family and community that exists along Chatsworth Road, the way people get to know each other, the way they support each other in business and in life generally” says Carrie Churches from Embellish. “I moved to Chesterfield from Bristol with my boyfriend Luke Brobbin and I already feel like part of the family.”

Embellish opened its doors on 9 May 2015 and it’s been a crazy first year for them. If you don’t know them, they are based at 338 Chatsworth Road, the old building that was, for in excess of 40 years (we’re guessing here), Audrey M Carters. “When we got the keys we very quickly realised there was a lot to do” Carrie tells me. “The building hadn’t been updated for a long time and it was hidden from the road with a heavily covered front window. We stripped the entire room back to brick and set about refurbishing the place.” Carrie must be pleased with the results, the environment is stylish and with the large window frontage you can’t help but notice how busy the place is, especially at the weekend. Carrie was previously a holiday entertainer "I was one of those over-enthusiastic reps getting you off your sunbed to play beach volleyball or up dancing in the evening" she adds. She met her boyfriend, Luke in Cyprus when they were both doing the same job. They moved back to the UK together after 2 years of overseas work and decided to settle in Chesterfield. She then spent three years working for MAC cosmetics, in a Sheffield retailer, but she was interested in ‘doing’ rather than ‘selling’ so decided to give it a go on her own, leaving MAC in November. "I took some space above Maison Mes Amis and started to build my client list" says Carrie.

Page 38

"I had freelanced alongside my full time job before but hadn't worked much in Chesterfield. I was so happy and amazed at how quickly things snowballed. By January I needed another makeup artist which was when Lauren joined me. We had lots of customers asking if we did hair so I decided to take the leap and look for a bigger premises where we could be a 'one stop shop'."

“I’ve seen people come in with their head down and leave beaming. It’s a real boost to self confidence." Carrie uses social media to show her work, the Facebook site is visual and has worked fantastically for her, bringing in new clients as people post up their make up shots, they even have a selfie area in the salon! Women also like to chat which is great for spreading the word and brings new people into the salon. Carrie is a professional makeup artist and the services on offer at Embellish include makeup, hair and nails. "During the week we tend to be busy with hair, from colours and cuts to hair extensions and curly blowdrys. We also have a lot of wedding trials mid-week. On Fridays and at the weekend we are a one stop shop to make sure ladies look and feel glamorous whether it's for a night out, a wedding, birthday or any event for which people wish to look their best" enthuses Carrie. "We also have a nail technician on a Saturday, there's a real buzz about the place at the weekend, we like to help get the party started!

“We have a fantastic barber, Dan. Lots of gents come and have a cut whilst they wait for their partner, men like to look good too! "We hold a Makeup Masterclass once a month, which takes place over three evenings, and has been really successful. We’ve recently had a group of ladies travel from Northampton to spend the week at Casa and attend the class. This is about giving customers the ability to take home some of the skills we use, many people are taught how to apply their makeup as a teenager and stick to the same thing for years. We like to introduce new techniques and products to a wider audience through the classes.” Today the team at Embellish includes Jodie and Dan doing hair and barbering; Lilly, the junior hairdresser; Carrie, Lauren and Fiona the makeup artists, Bethany on reception and Terri doing nails on Saturday. They have recently been shortlisted as finalists for the 'Ido Wedding Industry Awards and have also been announced as finalists for the 'Chesterfield Retail Awards'. The team is off to a flying start and are awaiting your call! I’ll leave the final words to Luke, Carrie's partner “I’ve seen people come in with their head down and leave beaming. It’s a real boost to self confidence.” Embellish • 338 Chatsworth Road.

Will Staveley Town Lock be completed in time for the Festival? Words: Chesterfield Canal Trust


he Chesterfield Canal Trust’s volunteer Work Party is striving valiantly to get everything completed, but bad weather and mechanical problems are making it really difficult. Work on the lock itself is almost complete. Only the coping stones and the lock gates need to be fitted. The gates have already been made by Hargreaves and are in their works in Halifax. The main problem is completing the 300 metres of canal below the lock, known as Hartington Harbour. This area has been, at best, ankle deep in mud and at worst totally flooded since November. The Trust’s ageing excavator, known as Denis, has developed frequent mechanical problems. JCB/ TCHarrison have been magnificent in lending support to the Trust in helping to fix these breakdowns. Trustee in charge of the volunteers, David Kiddy, said: “I am very proud of our volunteers. Many have come Page 42

to work four or five days a week throughout the winter, frequently working in atrocious conditions.” It is a popular misconception that all that needs to be finished is the lock itself, but David goes on to say: “We have to build the next bit of canal below the lock. We can’t just empty the water from the lock into a field and we need a space for boats to turn round.” This site and the canal belong to Derbyshire County Council. It is part of the Markham Vale development. The Chesterfield Canal Trust volunteers work under the direction of DCC engineers. Most of the visible work has been done by volunteers from the Trust, with occasional help from the volunteers of the Waterway Recovery Group. The bridge at the end of the lock, the bywash and the spill weir base were done by contractors. Everything else – the lock, the excavations, the walls, the L-shaped reinforcers, the blockwork, the brickwork – has all been done by volunteers.

The Chesterfield Canal Trust has invested around £100,000 so far in the project. Nearly half has come in donations, the rest has come from other activities like its tripboats, membership fees, sales etc. (As an example, a cubic metre of concrete costs over £80 and there are 300 cubic metres in the lock alone.) Markham Vale pays for the contractors and has paid for some of the blocks and concrete and all of the L-shaped reinforcers. The lock gates were bought with a grant from Veolia. The Trust is hosting the National Trailboat Festival on behalf of the Inland Waterways Association on May 28th and 29th (see opposite page). It is hoped that all the work will be done by then and that boats will be able to use the lock, turn in Hartington Harbour and come out again.


National Trailboat Festival Staveley 28 & 29 May Words: Chesterfield Canal Trust


he Chesterfield Canal Trust will be hosting the Inland Waterways Association National Trailboat Festival at Staveley Town Basin (S43 3XZ) on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. There will be five tripboats in operation, including the brand new John Varley replacement, plus lots of entertainment, attractions and caterers. The main difference between the recent Canal Festivals held at Staveley and this one will be the number of boats. It is expected that dozens of trailboats will be moored in the basin and back towards Constitution Hill Bridge. Most will be decorated, creating a really colourful spectacle. Highlights will include a parade of illuminated boats on the Saturday night and a convoy of trailboats and tripboats right up to the River Rother in Chesterfield on Monday 30th May. It is hoped that the new Staveley Town Lock, built by the Trust’s volunteer Work Party, and a further 300 yards of canal beyond it, will be officially opened (see opposite page).

Business Update

Creating a Family Alastair Meikle brings us up to speed with progress at Monkey Park, Brampton's Community Interest Company. Words: Alastair Meikle


onkey Park cafe and bakery is situated in Brampton on the corner of Chester Street and Clifton Street in a former tile and bathroom showroom. A small group of local community activists had dreamt of opening a project like this for a number of years when an opportunity to move into the redundant building presented itself earlier in 2015. After several months of renovation the cafe and artisan bakery opened for business in October 2015. The business is structured as a ‘Community Interest Company’ which is a model designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. The directors volunteer their time and the cafe and bakery has created paid work for 8 local young people. The cafe and bakery are open from Wednesday to Saturday 9am to 4.30pm with a selection of cakes made on the premises. A choice of items for lunch including soup and ever popular focaccia from the bakery. As well as white and wholemeal rolls and loaves, sourdough is rapidly becoming the best seller! Coffee is sourced from ‘Twin Cafe’ which is another social enterprise in Sheffield with the raw beans coming from Sheffield’s twin town in Nicaragua with their profits being shared between the two cities.

Page 44

At the far end of the building is the small bike repair workshop which is open just on Saturdays at the moment although bikes for repair can be dropped off whenever the cafe is open. Virtually all repairs can be undertaken, if possible bikes will be repaired on the Saturday they are dropped off, if not they should be ready the following Saturday. The workshop also accepts donations of bikes which are refurbished and sold to support Monkey Park. There is usually a stock of up to a dozen available. Monkey Park supports cycling as a local sustainable travel solution and always has lots of local cycling information available. There are often members of Chesterfield Cycle Campaign and Brampton Bicycle Club in the cafe! The full range of Green Oil products are for sale in the cafe and bike workshop. Upstairs is Monkey Park Works, Chesterfield’s first co-work space. Since January 2016 there have been twelve desk spaces open and by the end of May this will be doubled and include a small meeting room too. For home workers and start up businesses it's a great, low cost way to work with a group of other diverse businesses in a friendly atmosphere. There is high speed internet access, A4 & A3 printing and lots of charging points! A lot of the renovation work has been completed by volunteers

and we want the space to be seen as a community resource. The cafe area and upstairs space are available at very reasonable rates for individuals and groups to hire when not open for normal business and we give a discount to groups promoting similar ideals. We want Monkey Park to be a base to reach out into the community to build a better Brampton. There are already a group of community organisers based at Monkey Park and we are compiling a Community Economic Development Plan in conjunction with local businesses. One of our first community projects has just started. A bid to ‘Pocket Parks’ which was successful which will enhance the park opposite with new surfaced paths, new benches and planting. All sorts of groups have sprung up at Monkey Park led by volunteers including a book club, photography club, crochet club, creative writing group and carers community meet ups. A ‘Walking for Health’ group leaves from the cafe once a month, Jog Derbyshire and a ladies ‘Breeze’ cycle ride too. Hoping you can pop in and see us soon! 128A Chester Street Brampton S40 1DW

Wanting to rid yourself of unwanted weight? Hypnosis is an effective way of enabling you to lose weight. Your mind will be re-programmed so it becomes automatic for you to eat healthy foods, at the right times, in the smaller amounts. To no longer see food as a comfort or something to do when bored or stressed. You will no longer obsess about food and only think about it when you are hungry. Often diets help in the short term but fail to be sustainable. At Chesterfield Hypnotherapy Rooms you’ll find the help that you need to make a real difference to your life.

Hypnotherapy can be effective for many issues including the following:

Get Lilia Movin

Brampton Market

Lilia is a local little girl who lives on Vincent Crescent and has quadriplegic cerebral palsy due to a traumatic birth.

A few words from Jules Cooper who is part of the team bringing a trial outdoor market to the Britannia Inn on Sat 28 May from 8:30am.

Sat 21 May @ The Brit

Family friend Claire has been in touch to let us know they are holding a second fund-raising day at the Britannia in late May. The event called "get Lilia moving" was very successful last year and the money raised provided treatment for Lilia which has had fantastic results. The money raised from this years events will go towards therapy treatment in America. Liam (Lilias dad) is running in this years Chesterfield marathon and Amy (Lilia's Mum) is due to have their second child early May. Hosted by Becky Measures, the event takes place on Sat 21 May from 3 to 9pm and includes a whole host of bands, events, food and activities throughout the day. See for more info or just turn up on the day and give them some support.

Boxing 4 Heroes

Sun 1 May @ The Manor Charity Boxing comes to The Manor on Sun 1 May from 2pm to 7pm. The competitors start their journey with little and often no experience, and are taken through eight weeks of intensive training by fully certified coaches. On the day, the action is run in exactly the same way as pro fights with all the support that goes with it. Dress to impress and be part of an event that will be broadcast live by official media partners Spire Radio with entertainment in the ring between bouts from duo Tim and Simon, as they broadcast their Sunday Roadshow. Tickets are £20 through Eventbee ( event?eid=121440893 ), The Fitness Factory or Spire Radio. The event takes place in a marquee at The Manor, all to help raise funds for the charity Help for Heroes. Page 48

Sat 28 May @ The Brit “Folks often talk about a time when there were family-run fruit and veg shops in Brampton and what a shame it is now they’re gone. What they miss they say is not only the convenience - but the sociability and the chance of bumping into a neighbour for a chat. “On Saturday 28th May we’ll be piloting a new outdoor market in the heart of Brampton. Centred around Brampton’s own pop-up fruit and veg shop hosted outside the Britannia Inn, Brampton Market will offer high quality everyday provisions and special treats at affordable prices. “With artwork and signage by local artist, Pete Barber, there’ll be handmade bread, Derbyshire cheese, home-made cakes and pies, flowers and plants, banana fritters, chilli sauces, lashings of real ginger beer - oh and fresh fish from Grimsby. “Why are we doing it? We want to create a friendly outdoor space, open to all, offering quality affordable produce. We hope that Sat 28th will be the first of many markets, and we invite everyone to come and see what’s on offer, and tell us what they would like at future events. “It’s not about looking back or nostalgia for the past. Brampton Market will represent good things like local shopping, seasonal produce and a meeting place on a crossroads at the heart of where things happen.” If you have something tasty to sell or want to get involved call Jules on 07753 662612. They’re also on Facebook and Twitter @ BramptonMarket.

Well done Tom, we are so proud of you here at Kip! Jo Linthwaite (Kip McGrath)


ach story we write is about an actual child we have worked with at Kip. This is Tom’s story of success and may hold some ideas for you to help your child. Tom arrived at Kip 2 years ago, aged 8. He was a year behind in spelling and reading comprehension; punctuation was non-existent and his hand writing was almost illegible. His concentration was very poor, his self-esteem was very low and he found it hard to interact with the other children. His favourite avoidance activity was to play the clown! We designed an individual plan to focus on building his basic literacy skills and confidence. We used the whiteboard to practise making shapes and patterns. This improved his pen grip and hand-eye coordination. Slowly we began to see improvement in his hand writing. Tom enjoyed using the latest IT to improve his spelling and understanding of phonics – the different ways of spelling individual sounds. Using the computer helped him overcome his frustration as he could concentrate on the sounds rather than how to form the letters. Tom could read well but he found it hard to understand what he’d just read. Using different highlighter pens, the team at Kip helped him break down the readings into more manageable chunks. They did the same with questions, breaking each question into its parts – question word, nouns, and verb. This allowed him to process the information more easily.

At home Mum and Dad did their bit as well by playing shapes games, such as ‘drawing’ letters and number shapes on Tom’s back with a finger. He had to guess which one was being drawn. This improved his awareness of the shapes and where to start and finish them. For the first few months he was only able to complete 1 or 2 activities per session. Then slowly but surely Tom began to work more independently and see for himself how literacy wasn’t a great mystery after all! So why are we so proud of Tom? Well two years on, he is a year and a half ahead of his age with his reading comprehension; his spelling is spot on for his age and his hand writing is something to be proud of! The biggest change however, has been in his behaviour. He bounds into Kip full of enthusiasm which is replicated in school. He routinely completes 4 or 5 activities per session; such is the improvement in his confidence and concentration. He willingly has a go at everything and has a great relationship with the other children in his group. If you have a child like Tom in your family, why not bring them along to Jo at Kip for a free assessment and see them write their own success story in a few months time.

Business Article Article

Equity Release S40 based Simon Chalk answers the key questions about releasing capital.


he value of your home, less any mortgage you may have, can be described as your “equity”.

More and more people aged 55+ are choosing to release some of this equity and turn it into tax-free cash. Equity release plans can be a popular way to do that, without having to move home. With 27 years’ experience in financial services, Simon Chalk a four times national award winner for equity release advising is here to answer your questions about releasing the money that is locked up in your home. I’m only 55, can I release equity? You can take a Lifetime Mortgage from age 55 (based on the youngest borrower if it's a joint application). You should bear in mind that the younger you are now, the longer the loan might run. Today’s 55 year old on average will live almost 35 years. A good adviser would explain by how much the loan will increase if you take the popular ‘rolled-up interest’ type of Lifetime Mortgage which does not require any monthly repayments. The younger borrower may have several decades ahead of them, so being cautious with spending the released money will help it last that much longer. My bank won’t lend to me as they say I’m too old! Is there a maximum age limit to take equity release? Actually, no. Unlike ordinary mortgages which many mature homeowners have had difficulty in obtaining in recent times, many Lifetime Mortgages have no upper age limit & the older you are - the more you can borrow.

Page 52

Although most of us slow down our spending habits as we grow older in later retirement, maintenance bills for the home don’t stop! Then there’s the possibility of needing a bit of hired-help with the chores such as cleaning, gardening & so on. Knowing that you won’t be prevented from releasing equity just because of your age, can be mightily reassuring when faced with these bills. So how much money can I release? The amount you can take depends on the value of your home and the age of the youngest borrower. Roughly speaking, 55 year olds may borrow around about 20% of their property value, increasing to around 35% at age 65, 40% at age 70 until the maximum sums settle at around 55% aged 84. An adviser will give you an accurate amount by also asking about your health and lifestyle. This is because several lenders offer larger sums to borrowers with certain medical history. Even having a spot of blood pressure, or taking medication can make a positive difference to the amount of cash on offer. How much will my monthly repayments be? There’s no monthly repayment on a Lifetime Mortgage; instead, the loan plus accrued interest at a fixed rate will be repaid on the sale of your home when the last borrower dies, or earlier moves into long term care. You can choose to make occasional or regular payments with some plans. Call Simon Chalk for a FREE consultation on 01246 202 571.

Garden 10 Garden TipsThings


Garden Things for May

Words: Transition Chesterfield Pictures: Robert Nixon Betts

Being in the garden on any sunny day in May has to be one of life’s best experiences; the sun has real warmth and all around plants are shooting up. But a cautionary note: it’s still possible for there to be overnight frosts, especially in slightly more exposed areas, so be slightly cautious about putting out anything tender, or be prepared with some improvised shelter - it won’t need to be particularly robust as any frost will be light. The upside is that frost will only happen if the sky is clear, which makes for wonderful mornings… 1. As potato shoots appear do not forget to ‘earth up’ the growing potato shoots. This serves two purposes – young potato shoots do not like frosty weather, so cover over the shoots with soil for protection and it also helps to avoid young tubers from turning green with sunlight exposure. 2. Thin out raspberry shoots and prune gooseberries. As always, the idea with this sort of job is make an open framework with an even distribution of fruiting stems all getting a good supply of sunlight and air (often easier said than done). 3. Lots of more tender vegetables can be sown now: French and runner beans, courgette, cucumber, pumpkin and squash as well as cauliflower and purple sprouting broccoli for harvesting in winter - they like a long growing season. 4. Towards the end of the month, plant out summer bedding plants. These are available from garden centres, but are often displayed earlier than they are sensibly planted out, so, if tempted, keep them in a shady place (protected from frost) and well-watered until they can go into the open garden. 5. If you’ve already sown tomatoes and courgettes inside, they can now go outside. As upright (cordon) tomatoes grow, keep an eye open for Page 56

any side-shoots that form in the angle between the main stem and branches and remove them. Towards the end of the month seeds for both can be sewn directly into the ground. 6. Prune spring-flowering shrubs after they have finished flowering, and remove any growth damaged by frost from evergreen shrubs. Check variegated ones for any where the leaves have reverted to plain green and remove those shoots completely. 7. Sow peas outside now with pea sticks in place early, and prepare supports for any other plants (e.g. climbing French and runner beans) that will need them later. 8. Lawns will now need regular mowing (use the clippings as a mulch), and keep on top of the weeding. Hedges will need clipping, but check for birds nests first, and if you’ve been feeding the birds in the winter, don’t stop – current thinking is that you should do it all year. 9. Garden pests will multiply rapidly in the warmer days, so check vulnerable plants, especially vegetables, and take swift action to deal with them. 10. Keep sowing salad crops (radishes, spring onions, lettuce etc.) and herbs (parsley, coriander, basil etc.) for regular harvesting.
