'Thank you to Paul for your article in the July S40. 'Can we express our gratitude to our customers over the years and for their kind comments as well as sharing their memories of Johnson's ironmongers and of Phil's service, dedication and excellent advice across the years.


'It is sad that the doors are closing but they would have shut in January after Phil's sudden passing; so we want to say a special thank you to Richard for continuing to open the doors and serve the local community as Johnson's has done so for 129 years.'



Thank you for all the feedback and social media activity in response to the news about Johnsons.

The Interview Words: Amy Ritchie Layout: Jack Hutton Brookfield Work Experience Students

Upon a chance encounter at a Count Arthur Strong gig, I stumbled across the 70s variety entertainer Bernie Clifton and decided to find out a little more about the man behind the bird.


ernie, who started off singing in bathrooms as a 15 year old plumber, has done many rather interesting things over the course of his life, such as working with Lulu, being a door to door vacuum salesman, appearing on The Voice, and entertaining the Queen. Most people, however, know him for his roles in 70s TV shows Crackerjack and The Good Old Days, and his big yellow ostrich called Oswald which, according to Bernie, 'keeps getting slower'!

"Well I just stood there and I opened my mouth and started to sing, and this hush fell upon the audience" Page 4 www.s40local.co.uk

He appeared on The Voice last year after a life-long love affair with singing, which manifested itself after he got a job as a plumber. “When I was a lad, growing up in St. Helens, I was a plumber, and I was working on building sites in bathrooms. I used to sing my little heart out as a fifteen year old thinking ooh I've got to sing, and I could always sing, I was always a good singer, so that's why I started, I was singing singing singing, and then ultimately the comedy and the nonsense just arrived later.” Eventually, this led him to the stage, where as a 15 year boy, he got his first break in front of an audience. “The first time I got up on stage, it was a talent contest in St Helens, at the Theatre Royal, and I went along there with my mate Bernard, Moggie Moor he was called, he was Bernard Moor, and I was Bernard Quinn still am Bernard Quinn, and we sat on the front row, I was 15.” “The show was all about getting people out of the audience, and we were up on the stage like greyhounds out the slips. Bernard Moor held a mophead and pretended it was his girlfriend and told me to sing.” “Well I just stood there and I opened my mouth and started to sing, I could feel the goosebumps on the

back of my neck. Rosemary Clooney (Auntie to George!) had a huge hit in the fifties, with 'Half as much' and when I started to sing that this hush fell over the audience and I thought what is going on here, whatever it is, it's better than plumbing and that was it." "In terms of this rush of emotion,” he elaborated“ it's kind of addictive, you know once it's in you, feel it in your bones in your genes it's like, it's a great great feeling.” From here he first got his big break into comedy after an interesting job with Lulu. “I was doing a summer season in Jersey and people were flying out to see the turns and talent on there. Someone saw me and booked me to do a TV show with Lulu. When that was over someone dropped out of Crackerjack and somebody said, would you like to go onto Crackerjack? And I went yep, didn't think twice. I did four years on Crackerjack.” “It was a formative time of my career. At this time families would gather in the front room on a Friday night and the weekend would start, "It's Friday it's five to five... It's Crackerjack!". We'd do sketches and number one artists would come on the show, and at the end we'd do a medley that would involve the songs from the hit parade, I don't think we could do now could we?” He also did a Royal variety performance in the 1970s, “I met the Queen at the Royal Variety Show in 1979, it was very successful for me but, last year there was a reception at Buckingham Palace and I went along and

Bernie approaches much of life in this way, making the most of the moment, taking life now in his stride, approaching it with humour and a get up and go attitude, and is especially jokey about the subject of age. “You can call me as old as you like. I'm ancient. I'm a hundred and seven y'know. But I haven't looked after meself.” And when I kept accidentally calling him old, he replied with this. “Yeah. Keep saying old age. Old people. Old age. Old. Old age. Old age. Old age. Old age. Old people. Old age. Old age people. Aged people. Elderly. Antique. Redundant. Antique." A little more seriously he added “The whole world knows I'm 81. I don't care, funny thing is, when I was sixty, sixty five, I found I was hiding my age but once I got past sixty into the seventies I thought oh this is alright, you start to get a bit of respect. The trouble is that when you're young, you know nothing, but when you're old you know everything but no-one asks you.” “I've found with old people, asking them things after they've died you don't get the same reaction, the answers are much slower.” In the last few years, Bernie has been doing many different things. "After doing everything I did to get to The Voice audition and getting on the telly singing I said whatever comes up I'll say yes to, doesn't matter whatever it is.” “You never quite know what's around the corner, but I am a great one for trying to cram in a lot, I think if you've got an opportunity to do something, however trivial, just do it, grab the moment while you can. That would be my motto, I think 'grab the moment and keep on keeping on.' Life is for living isn't it.”

"I'm ancient. I'm a hundred and seven yknow. But I haven't looked after meself."

was introduced to her by a gentleman who said 'Your Majesty, this is Bernie Clifton, who entertained you at the Royal Variety show many years ago on an ostrich' and she went 'hmm ostrich,' and I said 'Yes Your Majesty, the ostrich is still performing, although he is much slower these days' and she said 'hmm slower. Isn't it funny how things get slower.' And off she went chuckling, absolutely delightful. Yeah great, great time, so that I suppose has gotta be top of my list hasn't it.” Due to his preoccupations with comedy, his singing took a backseat until a few years ago, when he got himself on the ex-BBC show The Voice. “I never actually told my family or my agent that I was doing the audition because they may have tried to talk me out of it and I thought I'd just go for it because I had the belief that it was the right thing for me.”

Which is especially evident in the work he's doing, and has done in the last couple of years, like doing a Radio show called Liveish which goes out on Radio Sheffield every Saturday at one o'clock. As well as this he's branching out with many other things, writing an autobiography about his life and doing a summer season. “Well I'm actually writing a book,” he said “I'm thirty-thousand words into my life story, and I'm still only up to the seventies and I've got so many things that have happened to me and so many people I've met and so many places I've been to, in my life that I could've never imagined as a fifteen year old plumber in St Helens.” And he said about his summer season, which is coming up soon. “It's the first summer season I've done for twenty years and it's fantastic. It's at the Spa Theatre in Scarborough, three nights a week, starts on 24 July and it finishes at the end of August." He also appeared on Channel Four programme First Dates. “I love the programme First Dates, think it's fantastic, it's like being a fly on the wall. I have to tell you that watching the show when you're on it is not the same, I watched it from behind the sofa.” “Nevertheless, no regrets, but there was no spark there, between me and the lady that they paired me up with, but it was still an experience. It's what life's all about innit?”

Page 6 www.s40local.co.uk

"we called it a departure lounge, the mouse went in, ate all the food, had a poo and then ate its way out the cardboard"

Though he said that the lack of performance threw him a little. “I'm very vulnerable, when you're on stage it's an act, just mucking about and in the public you adopt a persona, you've got an alter ego, but when all that's wiped away, I couldn't go home and behave with my family the way I behave when I'm doing my shows. They wouldn't stand for it anyway, but that's another story. So to be exposed, if you like, to be revealed as the real you, the way you actually are, it wasn't easy. It wasn't bad at the time, but it wasn't easy to watch.” In a vulnerable moment he said “The happiest moment in my life would be finding a girl, getting married, and the saddest would be losing her to dementia fifteen years ago”. He and his wife lived in Barlow and he chooses to stay after all this time. Bernie expained why, “Agh, I love it, it was an absolute total accident, I was brought up in St

Helens in Lancashire and when I was 21 I had to go and do my national service in the RAF, and I ended up in a RAF camp in Doncaster. When I came out I stayed there, I met a Doncaster girl, and I stayed there.” “I got a job selling vacuum cleaners door to door and the firm opened a branch in Chesterfield. Because I'd got no ties I went to Chesterfield. On my first day I got in a van and they dropped me off outside a housing estate in Bolsover and I sold them all a washing machine.” “I went down this street and everybody ended up with a washing machine, so I thought 'I think I might stay in Derbyshire, and I did'. I put down roots here. We raised a family here, yer mam might remember a joke shop we had on Knifesmith Gate? and eventually bought a derelict farm in Barlow, that was thirty five years ago. It's a beautiful part of the world, absolutely love it, even though I'm a Lancastrian at heart, nevertheless I'm more of a dyed in the wall Derbyshire person now. I'm a very lucky boy, living where I live.” He now lives quite happily in an old cottage on a farm in Barlow. "I went flying last night, tripped over the cat." Bernie jokes "Not really, I went flying last night, I have a trusty microlite and fly an aeroplane as well, did you know that? I went out about half past eight last night, went for a little buzz around Barlow, which is brilliant. Lucky boy.”

The farm does have one problem, the amount of mice swarming around, but Bernie’s come up with a rather interesting way of dealing with them. “You know the first thing I do at night and the first thing I do in the morning is put the mice out that I've trapped. We've got these humane mouse traps, because I can't kill anything. We've got mice all over the place, and I know they're there, and I now lock everything up, if it's not locked up they'll have it. And one of thems eating a hole in the bottom of a door that leads Into my utility room and every morning I come out and I can see these little wood shavings it's trying to get in or get out.”

I've attached a large box to the trap so the mouse goes in and has a nice big space which we fill with chocolates, and put a little loo in the corner and a jacuzzi so it has a nice little night on its own before I release it out into the wild unscathed.” “However, the instructions also say you must release the mouse at least a quarter of a mile away. Well I'm not doing that at eleven o'clock at night or seven in the morning so I just take it down the bottom of the garden, they're probably back in the house before I am. I could take them in my microlite and drop them out, parachuting mice, just get a parachute out of a hankie and just take them up to fifteen hundred feet and say 'there you go'.” “The first modified mouse house we made we called the departure lounge, but the mouse went in, ate all the food, had a poo and then ate its way out the cardboard, so we've modified it again, this one we've called Shawshank Mickey. At the moment we've got the trap stuck into a cardboard box. The first thing I do in the morning is come out the bedroom and there's one of the traps on the landing, usually containing a mouse going 'hello', he goes out and I go downstairs and there's another one. I think I could do a great song about Shawshank Mickey.”

“So I've bought these two humane traps, they're anout about six inches long and about two inches square, and the mouse goes in and as it goes in, it hits a flap and the flap comes down behind it and it can't get out.”

Bernie can be seen at the Spa Theatre, Scarborough until 30 August and his CD 'The Voice of Bernie' is available from his website www.bernieclifton.co.uk.

“But the instructions say not to leave the mouse in for more than four hours or it will become traumatised and shocked, so I come up with a way to make it more comfortable.

Community This month’s cover illustration comes from Craig Burr, who has been homeless for two years. Previously he ran an IT company but circumstances conspired against him, relationships ended and he was left in debt, without a roof over his head. I was introduced to Craig via Betty Frost who runs a local, community art group at St Augustine’s Church, for people struggling with mental health or other wellbeing issues. Craig explained “When I first became homeless I became involved with other people in the same situation. This had a negative impact on me and I ended up hooked on Spice (formerly known as “ Legal Highs”). I realised that I needed to separate myself from that community and those influences, I found myself a place to sleep away from the group and came off the drugs.”


Craig Burr

“I initially went along to the art club as it was warm and there was always a coffee and biscuits” explains Craig. “I wasn’t there for the art, I’d never even drawn before and it took a while for me to feel comfortable with what I was doing. I never had any confidence in what I did, and was anxious about what people would think, but I stuck with it. It gives me a sense of escapism, and I’m hopeful that it might give me a way out of my situation and back into society. For me the art is about getting into the detail. Whilst I’m working I forget about things and lose myself in what I’m doing.” Craig describes his work as ‘artwork you can't glance at as you walk past’. The cover illustration is actual size, he works at an unbelievable level of detail, the more you look the more you see. He showed me a piece he’d started at 3:30 am that day, “I’ve had three attempts at this. I’ve had a picture of a rocket in my head where the launch pad is a stone viaduct and the control tower an old town” (The work was unfinished but already looked impressive). There is no preparatory drawing, Craig works directly in ink pen and so it only takes one mistake for him to have to start again. He has an incredible amount of patience. He also works from memory and never knows where he’ll end up when he starts a piece. “The Art club ran an exhibition in June, I had never shown my work to anyone outside the club so was worried about the response. I sold a few pieces and a guy who liked what I did commissioned a piece on the theme of trains.” The steam coming off the resulting train (all drawn from memory) is made up of all sorts of things : dinosaurs, whales, stags, birds, superheroes and much more. Again, the longer you look the more you see. Craig’s drawings are positive and show a strong sense of life, amazing when you consider his current situation. “I’m hoping my art can get me off the streets. I’ve been unable to get a place of my own and I hope to start earning from sales or commissions. My work is available to buy (contact Betty via the Gates Art Group) and will soon be on display at Brimington library.” Our cover is a commission from Craig, if you look really closely you might be able to spot a tiny Crooked Spire nestled in the windmill. To support Craig, we’re planning to auction off the original copy via our Facebook page, and also by email or phone. If you’d like to support him by bidding, please get in touch with me or see our Facebook page where we’ll keep the highest bid details. FB: S40Local e: Paul@s40local.co.uk m: 07764 801080 Page 18 www.s40local.co.uk

The Gates Art Club Betty Frost is a volunteer for Church on the Bus, a charity providing clothes, food and drink to homeless people in town. “I started the art group for people from Church on the Bus four years ago ,with money from our charity, the diocese,and a small grant from the council. We were based at "The Gates", in the town centre” explains Betty. “Two years ago we obtained a grant from the People's Health Trust,which allowed us to open the group to the community. We now run three sessions a week at St Augustine’s Church (on Derby Road) and have about 25 members.We are coming to the end of our funding this month and are looking for new sponsors as the group has become a lifeline for all its members.I personally have been amazed at the restorative power of group dynamics in the lives of people from very different backgrounds, who were often isolated before they joined us.The art brings us together and helps improve self-esteem , but the social side is the key element in improving people's well-being." The group held their first exhibition in June this year. It was very well received, and Craig’s work commanded a lot of attention.

Just Andrew

JustAndrew is a youtuber/aspiring director with 450 subscribers, working around the local area, whose entrancing vlogs are a glitch-infused wonder to behold. The vlogs, which he started doing in May of last year, consist of surprisingly good electronic music (not dance music, so calm down), timelapses, random cuts and weird artistic shots of buildings (which is definitely not a Casey Neistat rip-off at all). While he doesn't say much, instead saving his words for insightful comments such as 'I like these signs,' and 'We're at a food tasting festival, to see what we can taste.' The vlogs serve more as a diary for the world itself, showcasing the parts of life you might take for granted. While this

removal from anything human might seem rather counter-intuitive for a YouTube channel, I personally think this works in his favour, making it seem far more personal and intimate than if he did talk, almost as if he is letting you into snapshots of his life.

Words & Layout Amy Ritchie Brookfield Work Experience Student

He works in and around Chesterfield and is highlighting areas you'd recognise but wouldn't necessarily think about. It also works as a time capsule, keeping Chesterfield frozen, serving as a reminder to our generation. As if some lonely kid in the 2050s'will stumble across them one day. On a more positive note, as he posts about things like food festivals and Chatsworth, it's nice to see things like that illuminated in his rather interesting style, bringing local events to life.

Enjoying living and working on and around Chatsworth Road.



his will be the seventh year the Chatsworth Road Festival takes place. Between Thu 5 and Sunday 8 October local groups, clubs, organisations, and businesses will put on events and promotions to celebrate where we live.

The festival is a bit unique as there’s no village green where we can meet, with bands playing, carnival parades, stalls, cakes and activities, so the guys who organise it refer to it as a ‘celebration’. There will be bunting I’m sure, hung by those taking part and you’re never likely to be more than six feet from a cake or two! It really is about promoting the businesses and organisations near to Chatsworth Road, about celebrating the variety and making people aware of what's on offer. The area is a real gem with great pubs, restaurants and an eclectic mix of shops that sell everything from wellingtons to wedding dresses and award-winning cakes to “fairtrade” coffee. We’ll be keeping you posted of events in next month’s edition and the festival website and social media sites contain all that’s known. You can always check out windows (yes real shop windows) and websites of businesses as their involvement grows.

A few things we know already are: • The Brampton Food Market on Saturday 7th October at the St Thomas’ Centre will again host a number of annual ‘pop-up’ stalls, plus the popular ‘Towers Tours’ • Collect an exclusively printed shoebox and buy some contents to send to a child in need at the OCC Shoebox Shopping Day. • Ashes Hair Salon will be holding a cake sale for Ashgate Hospice on the Thursday and Friday. • The Barrel Inn are holding a black-tie charity casino night on Saturday 7th October, raising funds for Nenna Kind Cancer Support based in Chesterfield • Blanc Occasion – recently voted 2016/17 “Best new store” - will host a fundraising fashion show on Wednesday 11 October in aid of the new Retreat at The Royal. To keep up to date visit FB: Chatsworth-Road-Festival (make sure it’s not the Hackney one though!) or call Howard Borrell on 01246 221400 or 0790 415 2743.

Hard Hat Day @

St Thomas' Church Tower The flyer said 'Have you ever wondered what it feels like to view the world from a scaffolding platform?' I was invited along on a Hard Hat Tour of the work taking place at St Thomas' Church Tower. Heritage Lottery funded, the work is being done to secure the four pinnacles at the corners of the main church tower and remove an ageing old strap system that was installed in the past to secure the old stonework. It was a fascinating tour and with a difference. When I agreed to go I didn't think about how I'd be getting to the top! However the ladders up through the scaffold were soon despatched and the view from the top was one I'd not seen before ... and am unlikely to see again. The work is progressing well and Michael Sheppard, conservator, took us through the technicalities of the project which they expect to complete by the end of August. It was fantastic to see the view, (see pictures) before we climbed back down to terra-firma. Thanks to the team at St Thomas' Church for the invite.

iving with dementia is a challenge but, as stated by the Alzheimers’ Society, it is possible to live well with dementia if there is understanding and action from the wider community. We are currently working towards becoming a dementia friendly church. We’re looking at how we run our services, our signage and premises and what social activity we can provide. Down Memory Lane is our monthly social singing group - similar to Alzheimers’ Society’s “Singing for the Brain”. We start with tea and biscuits, giving carers in particular a chance to chat to each other and those with dementia the opportunity to be involved in a safe and caring environment.

Our team of thirteen volunteers is experienced in coming alongside people with dementia and ensure there is lots of laughter and fun throughout the session. We sing for half an hour then have another cuppa, followed by more singing. We sing familiar, older songs, tongue twisters and rounds, designed to stimulate the memory and communication skills. We meet on the second Thursday of every month and there is a delicious Christmas lunch each December. Why not come along and give it a try? From 2pm – 4pm in the Main Hall, St John’s Church, Walton Back Lane, Walton S42 7LT. Our next session is on Thursday 10th August and we’d love to welcome you.



from Stephen’s memorial service. Smiles has built a hygiene block and a church in Rapa and an education project will begin there this September with the teacher being sponsored by St John’s.

Stephen Woodward was a Trustee and Educational Advisor to the foundation for many years and was instrumental in building a school, nursery, church and medical centre in the Roma village of Tileagd. People from St John’s, schools and the local community have helped Stephen out in Romania on these and other projects. Just before Stephen died in December 2015 he was working towards building a house in Rapa. Proceeds from our annual Smiles Christmas Market went towards starting this project as did the generous donations

Please join us at this year’s Smiles Christmas Market on the 18th November and help us to help the poorest of the poor. For more information or to get involved call the church office on 01246 566205.

mong the seven charities that we support – in prayer and by giving 10% of our income – is the Smiles Foundation.

This charity started in the late nineties, providing relief aid of food, clothing and medicines in Romania. For generations, the Roma people have lived in particularly poor conditions. Many still exist in extreme poverty with appalling housing, no sanitation, inadequate food, clothing and warmth and without schooling, medical or optical support.

ur Guide unit meets at St John’s church and we do loads of fun stuff, like games, cooking, camping and community service. We all make a Guide promise, which helps us to remember to do our best, to help others and to develop our beliefs. It’s also something that links us with 10 million Guides across the world. We do go for guide interest badges, where we get to learn new things and develop our skills. Once we have earned them, we sew them on to our uniform. We also do challenge badges, which are really fun! We recently served cream teas to help raise money for Christian Aid. The night before the event, we made table decorations from vintage cups and saucers and fresh roses. On the day, we took people’s orders and served them hot drinks and scones.

at St John's

In May we did a pantomime for Rainbows, Brownies and people in the community. We raised about £300 for Ashgate hospice by doing this. We made the backdrops, props and costumes ourselves and learned all our lines! We also do lots of adventurous activities, such as paddle boarding and rafting (we managed to paddle board an entire mile!). This was done in support of Macmillan. We have great fun doing residentials and one time on a residential we went to a llama farm where we got to feed the animals and drink hot chocolate. We also like to have midnight feasts and keep our leaders awake all night!

Article Advertorial

The kids are playing! How do I keep them interested in English and Maths over the summer? Here are some fun ideas from Kip to help you… Mental Maths R Family shopping – give them a budget and see what meals they can come up with, dare you! R Compare prices for family tickets v individual tickets R Discounts? What was the original price/percentage/amount of discount? R Good old Slap! Learn times tables by placing the answers on pieces of paper stuck up around the house or garden. Call out the sum and the children run to ‘slap’ the answer using fly swats. Burns up energy whilst learning times tables!

Spelling & Reading R I spy A-Z See and Spell. Useful on long journeys! R Choose a series of books such as Harry Potter or Diary of a Wimpey Kid. Get them hooked and they’ll read all summer! R Adapt Slap and substitute words for numbers. Base your word choice on themes such as days of the week, months of the year, food or animals.

Writing R Ask your children to choose 3 different pictures, you can search online or cut them out from magazines, then ask them to write a story based on the pictures they chose. R You can adapt the writing activity by making it a bit harder! Give them a list of 10 words and ask them to write a story using all 10 words but keeping them in the same order as they appear on the list. Harder than you think if you mix nouns verbs, adverbs and adjectives.

Kip Supplied Activities R Find that 2017 Kip calendar stuffed in their Kip bag and have a go at the activities, a different one each month. Do you know the answers? R Check out the Kip McGrath UK Facebook page. All summer there will be new and varied games and activities, free and fun! Don’t forget that if you can slowly get them back into English and Maths before they go back to school in September, the loss of learning over the summer is significantly reduced and they go back raring to go. We know, that’s why we have our summer schools for the last two weeks of August! Call Jo on Tel: 01629 56611 or 01246 220224 for a free assessment or to join the summer schools. Above all, have a wonderful summer from Jo, Sarah and all the team at Kip McGrath Matlock & Chesterfield.

”Give Your Child The Best Start In LIfe”


Barlow Red ‘B’arrows? At local events near you this summer! “One of the premier aerobatic display teams, representing the speed, agility and precision of…” wait a minute there was a mistype in my Google search, this was the Red Arrows!

It sounds hilarious. The Barlow Red Barrows (BRBs) started in 2014 after David remembered seeing a group about 40 years ago in the Lake District. “It took me a while to find a like-minded group but we got together and entered the 2014 Barlow Carnival where we won £350 prize money which we split between Ashgate Hospice and Bluebell Wood” says David. Word spread about the good work the guys were doing and people started paying them to do carnivals and arena events, Simon from the BRB has cycled John O’Groats to Lands End raising funds, all money raised being donated to local charitable causes. They are doing a fantastic job raising money for charity causes, they’ve held black tie dinners and raised funds to support Lucas, a local boy who suffers from leukaemia and over the past four years have supported charities including Clic Sergeant who provide accommodation for children with cancer raising £3000, £5000 for Cry, a charity for cardiac risk in the young (14 to 35) and this year they are aiming to raise £6000 for Amy's House, who provide respite care for children with severe special needs.

Clearly, the Barlow Red Barrows have a lot to live up to… I went to meet David Johnston at the Tickled Trout, who set me straight. “We are a squadron, a bunch of 12 available pilots at the moment, fitness isn't important, we’re not actual pilots, we’re fuelled by beer, crisps and pickled eggs. Squadron HQ is right here at The Tickled Trout in Barlow. We’re ground based, moving at speed, a bunch of men dressed in blue tights, white shorts and red shirts dancing with red wheelbarrows and this year we’ll have smoking barrows, red, white and blue just like the real thing!”

Update: Chatsworth Road Medical Centre Patient Participation Group (PPG) Wednesday 24 May. NOTE: Future meetings will be be held at 4pm. The group welcomed four 6th Form, Year 12, students, the result of the PPG Chair liaising with schools in the centre's catchment. A member has visited the new Macmillan Unit at the Royal Hospital and it is hoped that a PPG Page 42 www.s40local.co.uk

The group now have roadies, music systems and perform to a lively commentary. They have a string of events booked and will be appearing at:

Barlow Carnival on 19 August Hope Show on 28 August Eyam Carnival on 2 September Look out for the BRB at one of the above events or perhaps book them for your event next year, and if you do see them please try and support them and the great job they do raising money for deserving local charities.

Group visit can be organised in the near future. A representative from Care 100 is speaking at the Informal Meeting on 23 August. The group have produced two information leaflets: ‘Helping the Medical Centre to Help You’ and ‘Making the Most of Your Appointment’ and will be incorporated into new patients Welcome Packs. We are working on a project to give information about the benefits of Walking and leading an active lifestyle. There are a number of Walking Groups around

Chesterfield for all abilities, these groups combine enjoyable exercise with a chance to chat to fellow walkers. A Display Book containing information about each project is available by the PPG Notice Board for patients. If you are interested in joining the PPG you are welcome to come along. The next informal Meeting is on Wed 23 August at 4pm at the Medical Centre. For further information please visit www.chatsworthroadmedicalcentre. nhs.uk or contact Ken Davis PPG Chair on 01246 568392.

MERRIE ENGLAND Chesterfield G&S Society Chesterfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society has decided to ring the changes this year by staging Merrie England, composed by Edward German, at three different local venues in October. Written at the turn of the 19th century, the opera has been adapted and abridged by Society member Max Taylor, with this version being originally performed by Matlock G and S Society in 2012. Set in the 1590s in Windsor as the town anticipates the arrival of their May Queen and their monarch, Queen Elizabeth, the operetta features two Queens, two noblemen a lady of the royal household and a reclusive figure, centring on love, honour and duty. The cast features Judith Hill as Queen Elizabeth, Jo Howland as Bessie Throckmorton, Andrew Lockwood as Sir Walter Raleigh, Julie Currey as Jill all Alone, Max Taylor as The Earl of Essex and his granddaughter, Lizzy Blades, as the May Queen.

Directed by Nic Wilson, who plays Walter Wilkins the performance include an 8 piece orchestra with society accompanist Chris Flint, conducted by musical director Andrew Marples. To see if there's a happy ending, come and watch the show at Ashover Village Hall (7:30pm) 6 October, Bakewell Medway Centre 7 October and Hasland Village Hall on 13 and 14 October. Tickets (£10) are available from Carole Pilkington (01246 207893), Society members and Chesterfield VIC.

Open garden Sat 12 August

Entry is just £3 including refreshments and will help raise funds for projects in Tsumeb, Chesterfield's twin town in Namibia.

Richard and Sharon at 70 Hawksley Avenue, Newbold will be opening their gates to visitors from 11am to 4pm on 12 August.

Come and see this little award winning tropical paradise right here in Chesterfield.

A peaceful haven in the centre of Chesterfield will be open to explore as part of England’s favourite heritage festival. Elder Yard is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Chesterfield, and oldest nonconformist chapel in Derbyshire, is opening its doors on Elder Way, Chesterfield, S40 1UR.

Elder Yard Chapel Heritage Open Days Thu 7 to Sun 10 Sep (10am to 4pm)

A historic place of worship for Unitarians, whose open-minded approach to faith encompasses a wide variety of beliefs. The chapel, which is over 300 years old, was most recently one of the first in the town to progressively welcome same-sex marriages. There will be three lunchtime live music concerts on Thu, Fri and Sat

Page 46 www.s40local.co.uk

(1 to 1:30pm) and a charity coffee morning with homemade cakes on Sat (10am to noon). A special celebratory service will be held on Sunday 10 Sep (3pm to 4pm) where everyone of any faith, or no faith, is welcome. Elder Yard Chapel was built in 1694 when the surrounding areas were a mixture of small alleyways and cottages for working people. It provided a meeting place for Presbyterians and the Congregationalists, who eventually set up their own places of worship, the remaining congregation became Unitarian and still is today after over 200 years. heritageopendays.org.uk

Garden Tips The Inspire Community Garden

The INSPIRE COMMUNITY GARDEN is continuing to develop and a pizza oven is in place towards the top of our plot. Our cropping this year has been very impressive. Why don’t you come to have a look at our garden and meet the volunteers involved in the project? We may be lucky and inspire you to get out our spade at home or, if you have the time, to join us and benefit from our crops. The entrance is via the bottom of the Ashgate Road Car Park (S40 4AA).

Second Early potato varieties will be ready to harvest now, depending upon when they were planted, they usually take about 16 weeks to produce a good crop. They can be lifted as you want them but if you notice slug holes in the crop it is better to lift them all before the damage worsens. Store only the undamaged tubers and use the others quickly.

Summer pruning of apple and pear trees can be done now. This helps them to keep their form and remain healthy without having congested growth.

Most hedges can be pruned or trimmed into shape now, bird nesting should be over, and this will give time for limited new growth before it slows down in autumn.

Keep sowing quick-maturing salad crops – rocket, radishes, mixed leaves and some lettuces are all candidates – they’ll go on growing until the first frosts. Several lettuce varieties including Winter Density, Great Lakes and Lambs lettuce (corn salad) will last through the winter.

If you’ve got empty patches of soil, consider sowing a green manure; this will cover the ground and put much needed nutrients back into the soil. This will stop weeds becoming established and is best dug in before it sets seed.

Several herbs can be sown at this time of year in a greenhouse or cold frame e.g. chervil, dill, parsley and coriander can be protected from frost this way and will crop during the late season and winter.

Pot up any strawberry runners that have rooted, or encourage them to do so by pinning them firmly to the ground and make sure they are watered in a dry spell.

Apart from gently pottering around the garden, this should be the time of year you can spend most time simply enjoying it; however, it's the time most plants, including weeds, also enjoy, so try to stop them setting seed – there's an old saying, 'one year’s seeding is seven years’ weeding'...

Keep feeding birds to attract them to the garden, where they will also hunt out damaging insects and larvae. A shallow pool is a great wildlife draw, with the possible added bonus of seeing blackbirds washing themselves in a comically Victorian fashion, constantly checking to make sure they're not being overlooked, and covered head-to-toe in black.
