“Brampton Feast was held in the last week of July on the recreation ground next to The Bold Rodney pub on Chatsworth Road. The ground and the pub were owned by my grandfather for 38 years, and he let the organisers use the land. Harry Hall used to come with his amusements, and the feast would As the weather becomes run up to the Bank Holiday Monday. increasingly confused I’ve decided to People didn’t work for that week in stop trying to second guess what it’s Brampton, they all had a week off. going to do and just accept it as it is!

eorgia Peskett, local artist, works out of her workshop in Brampton Courtyard painting her urban landscapes. Her work is on display at an increasing number of exhibitions in the UK and abroad. I went to see Georgia for a cuppa and to find out what inspires her and makes her tick. Born in London to artist parents, she gained a Foundation in Art and Design at Epsom School of Art. From Epsom she travelled out to New York where her father had relocated, and it was here that she developed her love of the urban cityscape that features in so much of her work. She loved how New York’s older buildings captured her eye, “the look of it all appealed to me, I picked up an appreciation of architecture at an early age”. She moved to Chesterfield with her partner in 2003 and grew to love the town, “it’s got something about it” she commented, “I can’t quite put my finger on it but there’s an edge to the town, the rows of old terraces, it feels like it has a soul.” Photography plays a huge part in Georgia’s work, she works from photographs and has a digital archive of thousands of images from around the world that she constantly reviews, “digital photography makes it easier to manipulate the images, something that was very difficult working from film.” She always carries a camera. It might take some time for an image to filter its way to the top of the pile, “I review my archive and filter out the stronger images, it can be years before an image is ready to be painted, it’s as though I’m looking for images that are timeless and always look good. Right now I’m working on a piece that’s based on a photograph taken in 2008.” So what’s life like as an artist? “I’m from an artistic family so it’s no different now to life as a child really, I knew how things worked. There’s little or no predictability to what you do but it’s hugely rewarding I’ve had some great exhibitions recently and things are looking good for the future but I only ever really have a short term plan.” Page 20 • www.s40local.co.uk
Who’s work inspires you? “There are a few ‐ in my teens it was M.C. Escher or Rene Magritte but more recently people like Jock McFadyen or Peter Doig are artists I admire.” If you could only keep one of your pieces which would it be? “That’s difficult as I live with my work daily, but there’s one picture that’s been on the wall at home for some time. It features a cab in New York, I love the colours and the story it portrays.” What’s next for you? “Apart from many of my regular art events on the calendar in the UK for 2012, I aim to introduce my work to art lovers further afield in the next couple of years ‐ the Asian art market is something I would love to explore. I have also just become one of the Artists in Residence at Chesterfield College until April 2012 so I’m looking forward to what this will have to offer.” A busy schedule and a CV with a pretty impressive set of credentials and awards, lets hope Georgia’s success doesn’t see her leaving Chesterfield. You can see Georgia’s work at Harleys on Chatsworth Road and Derwent‐Wye Gallery, Rowsley or keep up to date with events and news at www.georgiapeskett.com. If you’re interested in learning from Georgia she also runs art tuition at Brampton Courtyard on Friday and Saturday mornings every fortnight.

the art of giving
apergirl was brought from Berlin to Chesterfield by Alistair Meikle during the Green Fair on 17 September.
A team of papergirls took to their bikes with almost 100 rolls of art to distribute to the unsuspecting, slightly suspicious and generally bemused folks of Chesterfield. Alistair kicked off collecting the art works via the Arts Derbyshire website through an advert asking for art contributions. Local contributors; John E Walters, Elizabeth Forrest, Ashoka Sen and Andrea Joseph were joined by artists from further afield, London, Manchester, Bath and Slough, in donating their art to be distributed, free of charge. Alistair explained why he wanted to give this a go "I thought it would bring something different and positive to Chesterfield. Art for All. One of the contributors recently sold works to the Saatchi brothers, so if you were lucky enough to receive some art make sure you hold onto it." Following the distribution day a gallery was set up in the Pavements shopping area of Chesterfield displaying art from all the artists. Alistair hopes to repeat the Papergirl event in Chesterfield in the future, so watch this space. More details: www.papergirlchesterfield.blogspot.com

A Head Start
Somersall Financial Management Ltd
Account (JISA) is open for business; a tax‐efficient savings vehicle aimed to provide parents, grandparents, friends and relatives with the opportunity and encouragement to build a capital sum for the benefit of their loved ones. This initiative is set to benefit an estimated six million youngsters who are eligible immediately and a further 800,000 Of course, money isn’t everything but children born each year in the UK (*3) . it can help to give our children a head It should be noted that the start. And the simple fact of the favourable tax treatment of JISAs matter is that the financial world our may not be maintained in the future children are growing up in is a very and is subject to changes in different and difficult one. If saving legislation. for our children was once perhaps an aspiration, it is increasingly becoming “those who choose higher a necessity if we want them to have education will be graduating the best start in adulthood. atching the children in our lives grow up can be a rollercoaster ride. Whether it’s drying their tears, encouraging their studies, or providing financial and emotional support for one or more of life’s key milestones we do what we can to give them the best possible start in life.
with at least £41,000 of debt”
Increasing university costs grab the headlines and present a real challenge. It has been widely reported that many are planning to charge the maximum £9,000 a year for tuition fees from 2012. With the average annual cost of tuition fees now expected to be £8,400(*1) it’s estimated that those who choose higher education will be graduating with at least £41,000 of debt. And the financial challenges keep coming for the younger generation. According to a recent report, the average first‐time buyer’s house deposit is now over £30,000 with their average age being 37 (*2). That isn’t an appealing prospect for children … or their parents! Without a helping hand, your children’s hopes and dreams may remain just that; but with sensible financial planning you can help make them a reality. From 1 November the government’s new Junior Individual Savings
The JISA will be available to all UK‐ resident children under the age of 18 who do not have a Child Trust Fund (CTF). The CTF was a similar child‐ focused savings initiative introduced by the previous Labour government, which was withdrawn earlier this year – another victim of spending cut‐ backs. The rules and regulations governing JISAs are based on those for a standard ISA. Both stocks and shares and cash JISAs will be available and children will be able to hold one of each account at a time. Both the cash and stocks and shares JISAs can be with different providers but it is not possible to have more than one provider for each account. The maximum annual contribution limit (combined across both accounts) will be £3,600, which will be increased in line with inflation each year from April 2013. JISAs will also benefit from the same tax advantages – tax‐
free interest on cash deposits, no further liability to income tax on dividends and no capital gains tax. Significantly, the accounts will be owned by the child but the funds will be locked in until the child turns 18. Rather than pay out at that point, JISAs will roll over into standard ISAs, hopefully encouraging the same saving discipline into the future. One quirk of the regulations means that for children aged 16 and 17, there is the opportunity to invest in both a JISA and a standard cash ISA in the same tax year. So, potentially, it will be possible to shelter a total of £8,940 in the current tax year – £3,600 in a JISA and £5,340 in a standard cash ISA. Children born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011 will retain their existing CTF accounts but will not be eligible to invest in a JISA. However, to help level the playing field, the annual contribution limits will be increased and brought into line with the JISA allowance. The government‐set contribution limits are intended to encourage all families to save for their children’s future, although the relatively low annual limit may still prove beyond the means of many parents, particularly in these austere times. But help is potentially at hand. Whilst a JISA has to be set up by a parent or guardian, the rules allow contributions from any source. It is often grandparents who are in a position to lead the way in saving for children, possibly as part of their own plans to mitigate inheritance tax. And it should also be remembered that other relatives, godparents and family friends can also make a

donation towards this valuable allowance. JISAs, clearly, have a number of valuable tax advantages but they are by no means the only solution for saving on behalf of your children. For larger sums, or to retain a greater level of control, the use of trusts provides greater flexibility whilst still offering the potential to make significant tax savings. However, if you want to invest, you need to choose a simple, flexible solution that gives you every chance of success in providing that vital helping hand to your children in the future. *1 (thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk, July 2011) *2 (source: Council of Mortgage Lenders, February 2011) *3 (source: Office for National Statistics, August 2011)

But now the first one’s over, we thought it would be good to check back with some of those involved to hear ‘How was it for you?’ Despite initially having no budget the Group pushed forward, the community and businesses came up with ideas for events which were promoted through the Festival’s website and social media. The Group was even buoyed by some last‐ minute funding. “We started off with no money but managed to get a £445 Community Action Fund grant to produce some publicity,” says Festival Group treasurer Colin Harrison. “Even in these difficult economic times, most local authorities have money to distribute to arts and community groups and events like

Businesses up and down Chatsworth Road reported increased footfall and an open day at the long‐established Brampton Courtyard, highlighted to many some hitherto hidden delights.

Shirley Niblock is a councillor for West “I needn’t have worried. The Food Ward who helped to drive forward a number of events including the Food Fair was great ‐ I’ve often talked about how good it would be to have a Fair whilst also raising money for market on Chatsworth Road, and the worthy causes. Food Fair made that happen. “I was heartened by people’s generosity throughout the week. “Now it’s all over, I can look back objectively. We made it happen and I was delighted with the successes and “John Brunt (West Ward Allotments) the positive comments.

Centre. Sally‐Anne Beecham is the new manager at the Centre. “Having a Food Fair was something we’d discussed before but it was just a case of having the confidence to go ahead and do it. “It had initially been raised at our community forum. People wanted a place to buy meat or fruit and vegetables somewhere other than the supermarket. “It was the second big event we’d hosted after our fun day the weekend before and it was great having the Centre once again at the heart of the community.”
“I feel the Festival has been a marvellous success in terms of bringing people together and what’s happened throughout the week has shown that it’s not just business that benefits.” Another key beneficiary from the Festival was the arts with book binding, pottery throwing and live poetry from new county Poet Laureate Matt Black featuring throughout the week. Award‐winning ceramicist Clare Gage also held a special Creative Coffee evening as part of the Festival. “We had some new members come along during the week,” says Clare.

Westfield Infant School
ECO Action Day
n Wednesday 12 October Westfield Infant School held their seventh ECO Action Day where the school community come out in force to help make the outdoor grounds of the school look wonderful! Weeding borders, clearing under the hedges, pruning our cherry trees and planting are undertaken by lots of willing volunteers. Westfield Infant School is very proud of their ECO work and has been registered with the ECO Schools Programme for the past 9 years. Last year they received their third Green Flag Award for their ECO work; reducing waste, montioring and reducing energy consumption, recycling, caring for wildlife and developing areas to attract other species to the school grounds. It is only through the involvement of the whole community ‐ pupils, parents, teachers, support staff and governors that this has all been achieved. Between now and July 2012 the school aim to create a wild flower garden, plant an area to attract Honey Bees and watch the birds in the school bird boxes through the new webcams. An exciting year ahead for the new ECO committee and community of Westfield Infant School!

Shoebox Appeals Are A Perfect Fit By Matt Kane
urfing the Internet the other day, I came across a list of the worst Christmas presents.
Top of that list of the most uninspiring Xmas gifts according to a panel of industry experts were the all too predictable pair of slippers. And it’s a good bet that the box they came in wouldn’t provide much more excitement for most people either. Yet two local charities are now filling their old shoeboxes with gifts and sending them abroad to help spread festive cheer amongst those for whom Christmas isn’t about sitting in front of a roaring fire or being at a dinner‐table with family and friends. Jane Simmonds heads up one of those charities having first got involved in running the ‘Operation Christmas Child’ shoebox appeal 18 years ago. She is now regional manager covering the Midlands’ region for the Christian charity Samaritans’ Purse.
The Chesterfield branch, run by Jenny Green, helps distribute some 32,000 fun‐packed shoeboxes to children in deprived parts of Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia. Residents, schools and offices are all encouraged to get involved by putting together their own shoebox of goodies which can contain items such as toys, dolls, paper and pens. All it takes is a £2.50 donation to cover the overheads of the Appeal and a little bit of imagination.
“What really appealed to me about it was that it is such a tangible appeal. People can share possessions as well as a lot of love in one little box. “A lot of the children we give to haven’t got a lot and often miss out on the simplest things. It’s amazing how a few stocking fillers can really make a difference to their lives. “This year we’re distributing to Swaziland, Belarus and Liberia from the Chesterfield warehouse, but 16 other countries will also benefit from UK gifts. They may have suffered from famine, war or a natural disaster.”
The work then begins for Jane and her army of 200 volunteers in mid‐ November as they start receiving donations and packing them into approximately four articulated trucks The charity that Jane and her team contribute to is part of a wider ready to despatch in time for network which sees over 1.2 million Christmas. boxes distributed nationally and a And, having witnessed first hand the whopping 8.6 million boxes sent out joy that the Appeal brings to the worldwide each year. faces of deprived children in some of Last year, Jane was fortunate enough the world’s poorest countries, Jane to visit war‐torn Liberia where she very much sees the value of it. was handing out shoeboxes from a local Chesterfield school. “There was this boy whose picture we were taking as he was opening his box and inside the lid was written ‘Love from Jed’. “We knew Jed was from Chesterfield so we tried to find him. Eventually we found out that he was one of our volunteers’ sons and managed to track him down. “When he saw the photograph of this boy from Liberia opening the shoebox that he had made he was overjoyed. He could see how his efforts had made a real difference to this boy’s Christmas.” Anyone wishing to donate to the Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Appeal can do so via Jane at jane.simmonds@samaritans‐ purse.org.uk. Details can also be found in a leaflet available at reception in the St Thomas' Centre.
Page 44 • www.s40local.co.uk
Another couple who’ve been dusting off their old shoeboxes are Walton‐based Peter and Ethel Lawrence whose Afghan Shoebox Appeal has been sending essential supplies to the front‐line since 2008. Peter is a former serviceman himself having served with the Parachute Regiment, Royal Engineers and the Worcestershire Regiment from 1959 to 1973. And, after speaking to personnel from 2 Para at a local association meeting, both he and Ethel realised that many servicemen and women lacked a number of basic supplies when serving in Afghanistan. “They were telling us that when they were out in fog areas all they have is food, water and ammunition. There are no luxuries. No soap, no shampoo and no toothbrush,” says Peter. “Our original plan was just to do 50 boxes for 2 Para but then after raising the same issue at the Engineers’ and Worcestershire’s meetings things just escalated. “Outside of the main Camp Bastion, items that we at home take for granted are hard to come by and the things we send out hopefully make their tour of duty less arduous.” Peter and Ethel are now working all year round to send out up to 20 boxes per week. Since they kicked off the project three years ago over 3,500 boxes have been dispatched to 26 units including the RAF, Ghurkhas and Black Watch. Race nights, coffee mornings and car boot sales have all helped generate funds which have been used to buy essentials such as shower gel, razor blades and sun cream. Judging by the 300 letters and cards they’ve received from serving personnel, Peter and Ethel’s efforts in providing the much‐needed supplies have been greatly appreciated. Their hard work has also been recognised with a recent Pride of Chesterfield award as well as with an invite to a royal garden party at Buckingham Palace. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Afghan Shoebox Appeal can do so through Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Out & About
Alfreton’s Benefactor By David E Jenkins
Page 46 • www.s40local.co.uk
ave you ever wondered as you drove into Alfreton why it has such an iconic war memorial, of a Tommy triumphantly rejoining his little daughter, and a noble building labelled the Lincoln Library? Both were gifts to the town from Robert Watchorn a local lad who made good in the U.S.A. The Watchorn family were driven from Ireland by the great Irish famine and settled in Alfreton where Father Watchorn worked as a miner. The second son, Robert born in 1859, in a family of seven children left school at eleven years of age and worked underground at Swanick colliery, sitting in the dark to open and close ventilation doors for twelve hours a day. But he was a bright boy and studied hard at night school and came to the attention of the colliery owners. After a short period at Shirland colliery, in 1880 he made the momentous decision, aided by funds from a local solicitor and the vicar, to emigrate to America. There he was soon employed in the Penslyvanian coal mines before moving on to a better paid job in the Pittsburgh coal field. Robert was able to finance the emigration of his father and his whole family to join him working in Pittsburg. Sadly soon after their arrival, Father Watchorn was killed in a mining accident. By 1890 Robert had played an heroic part in the attempted rescue of men trapped in an underground fire for which he received the gold medal of the Association of American Miners and took up a post as secretary‐treasurer of the newly formed trade union, of United Mine Workers of America. This soon led to his appointment as Chief Inspector of Factories for his home state where he engineered the passing of the Factory Inspection Act which much improved the working conditions of women and children. From this work he was head hunted in 1905 to become a Commissioner for Immigration at Ellis Island where he worked successfully to improve the conditions of poor migrants, building a hospital and helping many of the poorest himself. This work brought him into contact with Presidents McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt and William Taft. And led to his working in the oil industry where he assembled a considerable fortune. He had married in 1891 and had two sons. Sadly the elder died in infancy and the survivor Emroy an American army pilot was killed in a flying accident, in 1921. As a memorial to his son, Robert donated his son’s estate to a number of Californian churches; at the same time Alfreton was struggling to finance its War memorial. Robert provided the balance of the money and the memorial appropriately contains Emroy’s name. This rekindled his connection with the town and in the early 1920s he built a magnificent new Methodist chapel at Alfreton to commemorate his Roman Catholic mother and set up the Robert Watchorn Trust to help finance 34 cottages and donated the land for a park. To house his large collection of archive photos of the immigrants through Ellis island and important letters from the President he built the Lincoln Library. Though the archives have survived, the library could not be financed by the town’s people and was sold to the local Masonic Lodge. Robert died in 1944 just before the S.S. Robert Watchorn was launched but the memorials to this man of very humble beginnings have intrigued many a visitor to his home town.

Her ambition was to put the potteries back in, which she’s done through her business and now she’s done it on the outside of her shop at 140 Chatsworth Road. By working with Urban Canvas they’ve created amazing pictures that show key items from Brampton’s history. The idea started to form after reading the Urban Canvas feature, right here in S40 Local, in January this year. Janine explained “I went on to browse their website and when I discovered Peter Barber from Urban Canvas lived next door to my best friend the idea started to move forward!” “Pete worked up the proposals and artwork, we went through the Council’s planning department and a few versions later we had something I was really excited about for my shop. We wanted to capture the images of Brampton’s past. I thought about what Brampton means to me and others and came up with: family, community and industry. The industries I wanted to depict being: cannon ball production, Robinson’s with their revolutionary Paddi Pad nappy, the potteries (of course having a real interest for me), coal, the breweries (which are re‐emerging today!) “We’ve had some brilliant people involved in the project ‐ Paul Hudson‐Pitcher rendered the building to give us the base to work on (Rebecca from Flowerhouse’s partner), John Barton the sign writer and Peter Barber and the rest of the crew from Urban Canvas. I’d like to thank them all for their hard work!” “I am indebted to Councillor Keith Morgan for the allocation of a grant from County Council Members' Community Leadership Funding and his support in my mural project.” “I’m absolutely ecstatic with the finished product, it looks far better than the mock up, I feel it brightens things up and adds another point of interest to our area.” Page 50 • www.s40local.co.uk
At the age of ten she decided to become a Food and Nutrition teacher, which she did for 18 years in local schools, seeing the cohort of Food Technology students through the GCSE’s. Then to Mansfield College to do 3D studies which led to setting up the workshop on Ashgate Road during the second year of the course. Janine now works as a bespoke potter with local businesses for example Ringwood Hall where they have one of her breakfast services. Janine takes commissions, people specify the job and have it individually made. Janine also offers courses and lessons at her workshop on Chatsworth Road. And she’s developed the flat above the shop, The Pottery Flat, to be a three star Self Catering holiday let, available as a base for creative breaks which will include courses using local creative businesses, artists and makers.

Funds in every council are tight – and ours is no exception. They have got funds for park maintenance, but not improvements. They funded a survey sometime ago to understand what local people wanted from the park and used it to develop an improvement master plan. But what happens next is up to you and I! We told you about the second ‘Friends of Somersall Park’ meeting in October in the last edition. Mary Stead from the council had arranged it to try and get local ownership and involvement off the ground in the form of a Friends Group.

Visits have been made to local premises to check for suitability and a small working party will be looking to select the initial act in the near future, aiming for an event in the Spring. Cllr Howard Borrell explained "It would be great to bring top class entertainment into the heart of the community at a very affordable price." "I've seen Live and Local events elsewhere and they've helped bring communities together; the first event will aim to have a broad appeal and we all hope that residents will support what will, we hope, be the first of many such events." added Cllr Shirley Niblock.

After the October heatwave… The council are looking for volunteer snow wardens, to help clear snow from footpaths and minor roads should we see a repeat of last year’s extreme weather! Despite reserving a stock of 250,000 tonnes of salt to treat the roads, if the conditions replicate last year they won’t be able to clear the minor roads ‐ so want to help you to help yourselves and look after our community. Snow wardens will be delivered a 1 tonne bag of salt to a pre agreed location, near where they live, so they can rally support of friends and neighbours to clear the non‐priority roads that the council just can’t get to. Snow wardens will be invited to attend a health and safety induction session (1 hour), sign a ‘fit to participate’ form and will be provided with a shovel, gloves and high visibility vest to keep them safe! Could you be a snow man or snow angel and help keep things moving on your street.
