Introduction Evening all, As usual, I’m writing the S40 Local introduction at the last minute, when I really should be packing for a week at Grove Cottage, Whitby (see page 25). I think we must have been the first S40 readers to book in, it looks great, but by the time you read this we’ll already be home.

Contact Paul on 01246 568519 or 07764 80 10 80 mail@s40local.co.uk

As I look out of the window that white stuff has dusted the landscape again, and the cover features two wintery shots from a little further afield - if you have any great seasonal photos of the area don’t forget to send them in. Next, an apology, well two actually, for Jan / Feb edition blunders – despite our best proof reading efforts we didn’t spot that the advert for lighterlife encouraged you to lose weight for the Christmas Party season, now that is starting early! The other oversight was on the Chatsworth Hair and Beauty advert, where I inadvertently hid the name of the business, so if you’ve been looking for beauty treatments you’ll now be able to identify who they are and give them a try. Apologies to Sharon at lighterlife and Marie at Chatsworth Hair and Beauty. Diary dates, there are loads of things going on, so much in fact that What’s On seems to have taken over two pages. Also, don’t forget Mothers Day on the 14th March, and Easter Sunday, on the 4th April which just sneaks in before the next edition is delivered. If you’re buying gifts please remember to check out the local businesses and remember to mention S40 Local. If you run a non-profit making organisation, club or society please get in touch, we may be able to help you spread the message about what you do. It’s our 1st anniversary next month, yes a full year of S40 Local’s have been laid out, printed and delivered. When I set out I had no idea it would be so well received and so helpful to the businesses in the area - so thanks to everyone for supporting us. That’s all for now, I hope you enjoy this edition, if you have anything to share with us or ideas of things you’d like us to feature, please do get in touch. Paul. Issue 11: March 2010 Copy Deadline for April edition is 18th March, distribution by 4th April

S40 Local Chesterfield’s first event, raising an incredible £189,574.

Ladies. Cancer Research UK are looking for you and your friends to enter the Chesterfield 5K Race for Life and share amazing moments as part of the biggest female-only team in the UK. Nicola Windle of Chatsworth Road explains why she will be joining the line up this year “Last year, I was standing on the bridge over to Queens Park talking on the phone to my Mum when I saw a sea of pink coming towards me. I vowed then that I would take part in the 2010 event to raise money to fight the disease that my Mum was fighting at the time. My Mum lost her fight in September, so I’ll be lining up this year in Mum’s memory”.

This year organisers are encouraging 4,500 women over the two events to put their best feet forward and raise £213,000. Across the UK, 700,000 women take part in over 230 events between May and July. Cancer Research UK hopes that together we will raise a total of £60 million to fund the charity’s life saving work.

Helen Webster Cancer Research UK events manager, said “One-in-three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives. But the good news is that more people are beating the disease than ever before. Cancer Research UK’s work is at the heart of that progress. By helping to raise money through Race for Life, our supporters are turning hope into This year’s Race for Life in Chesterfield is on Sunday, July reality.” 11th, with two events - at 10.30 and 14.30, both starting from Chesterfield Town Hall. If you did it last year then To enter the Chesterfield Race for Life go to the route has changed to a one lap course finishing in www.raceforlife.org or call 0871 641 1111. Queen’s Park. Race for Life is the UK’s largest women-only fundraising event where all money raised goes to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

Entry is £12.99 to cover organisation & admin costs.

Last year 3,649 women walked, jogged or ran in

PC Randell’s Update In conjunction with Walton Evangelical Church I have produced My First PODCAST with the following message “I am dedicated to making the area a safer, cleaner and more pleasant place to live. I have been working hard to tackle the issues you said matter the most. These include anti-social behaviour and underage drinking in Somersall Park and around Walton shops. As a result of the work I have done with Walton Evangelical Church, local councillors and other partnership agencies there has been a huge reduction in the number of calls about these problems. However, recently we have seen an increase in the number of thefts from vehicles and burglaries in the area. I would like to reassure you that this is a safe area in which to live and that by taking simple steps you can greatly reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime. If you would like to have an input in helping decide the priority issues I will be tackling in the coming months please come along to my neighbourhood panel meetings.” To find out more about the Walton and West Safer Neighbourhood team and the latest crime figures for the area please see the Derbyshire police website >> http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/local/113.html PC 2397 Randell 10

Managing Your Finances After The General Election

B

y June 2010, Britain will be the other side of a General Election and the new Government, whatever its hue, will be formulating its plans for the first parliament.

But until all the votes are cast and the Government for the next five years is decided, no one can say for sure what the future will be for people seeking to make sense of their finances and planning to make the best use of their assets and resources over the next few years. However, several indicators are already out there. The Chancellor, Alastair Darling, has recently outlined the Government’s plans in his PreBudget Report, and we will look at the implications for taxpayers, investors and savers shortly. Meanwhile, the Conservatives have set out their plans for pensions, Inheritance Tax and the economy in their policy paper, Our Vision For Britain. In it, they state that they will reinvigorate a culture of savings in Britain, and will raise the basic state pension in line with earnings to stop the spread of the means test.

party also intends to align capital gains tax to income tax rates to prevent people from having an incentive to present their income as capital to pay a lower rate of taxation. It will also reduce the annual exemption of capital gains tax, from £10,100 to £2,000, to stop this allowance being used for tax planning, and will also introduce a small levy on the value of properties over a threshold of £2m (Source: Liberal Democrats Party Website – economic policy). Returning to the Government’s Pre Budget Report, the Chancellor announced measures that affect both retirement planning and Inheritance Tax (IHT), both core components of “IHT is charged at 40% over the £325,000 threshold. More people have been sucked into the IHT net in recent years as property prices escalated”

no link between ceasing work and the ability to access funds any more. Employer schemes can now be topped up by personal plans, and much larger contributions can be paid. Also in his Pre Budget Report, the Chancellor announced that the threshold at which a person is liable to pay IHT will now be frozen at £325,000 for the next year. It had been due to increase to £350,000. IHT is charged at 40% over the £325,000 threshold. More people have been sucked into the IHT net in recent years as property prices escalated, and tax planning measures need to be adopted to minimise exposure. The making of regular gifts such as paying school fees is one way of mitigating the effects. Downsizing, giving away money or releasing capital through equity release schemes are other ways of reducing potential IHT liability.

Before starting up TLC, Marie managed a small care home in Chesterfield, where Yvonne was the senior carer between them they have over 30 years experience in the care industry.

conferences and weddings through to the annual bonfire. We put a lot of energy into improving our community. We have a thriving junior squash section where promising youngsters get extra tuition from seasoned professionals and we play an active part in the local Going for Gold initiative with Brookfield School, helping identify and prepare Olympic hopefuls for the 2012 Games in London.

This month we’re with Craig Lynch the owner of Brampton Manor, finding out what the Manor is about, and taking a look at the great collection of services on offer. >> Craig, when did you become owner of Brampton Manor and what’s your background?

Our older members are equally important, hence the special rates for over 55s. We run classes to help people maintain mobility and host a twice-weekly cardiac club where people with heart problems work with a speciallytrained instructor. We also reach out beyond the walls of the Manor and into the wider community and have sponsored educational

I bought the business in 2005. In the recent past it had been in receivership twice - I fancied a challenge and it seemed like a great opportunity. My background is in hotels and leisure and I spent many years with De Vere Hotels, so it seemed too good to pass up this business right on my doorstep. Since taking on Brampton Manor I’ve also acquired Tribes hairdressers in town and the Fox and Goose at Wigley, both steps towards fulfilling my aim of providing Derbyshire with great family leisure facilities. >> Is Brampton Manor living up to your expectations? It’s not easy, but I like that. Brampton Manor was failing when I became owner and it’s my job to turn it around. My aim is to make it the areas top family leisure venue. I hope people reading have already seen a change in our focus; we want ‘families’ to be at the heart of our business. Recently, we’ve reduced rates for the over 55’s and one of the team won a Skills Award. These great achievements demonstrate two of our principles; looking after yourself and the key role we want to play in the community.

S40 Local: Behind The Business Employment Partnership won their Work Skills Award and we attended the award ceremony at the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, Nottingham. We’re really proud of Lewis and of the award as it recognises the efforts of both the employer and employee, it’s a great accolade. >> This sounds great but is there a down side to all this revival and challenge? As with any business it has its moments. To turn any business around needs a great deal of hard work, and we’ve put in loads of that, it’s a 24:7 role. Also the Manor House is not a young building, a lot of time and effort goes into it’s maintenance, after all it’s been here since the 16th Century. >> You told us there is a collection of businesses, is there you’re benefitting the entire community and not just a bunch of faceless London shareholders. >> Another benefit, for our readers, that occurs to me is the location - being so close to home means you don’t have to get across town and if you’re close enough you can even walk or cycle down - it’s not so difficult to get there so you’re more likely to get your money’s worth out of your membership. >> You’re a supporter of local bands, when I was younger, I recall seeing an unknown band, Radiohead, supporting the Sandkings at a pub in Nottingham, have you had any similar success stories from your band weekends? I’m not too sure about that, but we’ll be holding the Weekend Music Festival again this year, together with events for the World Cup, a beer festival in September, Holiday Clubs for the kids and the annual Bonfire. There’s lots happening at the Manor throughout the year, subscribe to the mailing list (via the website) to receive our regular emails listing up and coming events. >> So the standard questions that we’ll be asking everyone? anything we should know about these? The Fox & Goose is a natural extension to Brampton Manor and like Brampton Manor we’re restoring it to it’s former glory, see the illustration top right. You can also see the development plans on the website www.thefoxandgooseinn.com. These changes to this ‘out of town venue’ should be ready for people to enjoy this summer. Then there’s Tribes hairdressers, on Knifesmith Gate in town and Salon 1600 for hair and beauty here at Brampton Manor. Both these businesses are synergistic with the offering we have at Brampton Manor and Tribes is exciting because of its exclusive use of Aveda organic based products.

Q. Favourite place to go for a meal? The Fox & Goose obviously, great place for Sunday Roast. Q. Favourite place to go for a walk or escape from it all? The Snug in the Fox & Goose or perhaps a short while having my hair cut at Tribes. Q. Best thing about the community around you? Being part of it and Brampton Manor being at it’s heart. >> Any final comment to make? We’re not a members only club and we’re only a short distance from your readers homes. Anyone is welcome to come and take a drink or enjoy a meal at Brampton Manor and we’d love to see you. If you’ve not already been perhaps it’s time you did?

>> There are a growing number of corporate gyms in the area, what’s different about Brampton Manor? This is simple. We’re people focused everyone is like a member of the family, you’re not just another number with us… and we’re locally owned, by using our services Please ensure you mention S40 Local when responding

To increase the intensity you can perform the circuit for a second or third time!

Ten things to do in the garden in March After this years harsh winter, hopefully in March their should be signs that spring is well on its way. 1.

Divide clumps of perennials.

2.

Cut back ornamental grasses and perennials left for winter colour.

3.

Check if any containers need watering and top dress them with fresh compost.

4.

Give your lawn its first mow (just take the tops of the blades of grass) on a dry day towards the end of the month if needed.

5.

Continue to plant deciduous hedges, trees and shrubs.

6.

Plant roses, but do not plant where an old rose has been grown to avoid the risk of disease.

7.

Prune Cornus (dogwood), Salix alba (white willow), buddleia, hydrangea, roses and lavertera but avoid pruning spring flowering shrubs until after they have flowered.

8.

Start weeding your garden again to stop the weeds getting out of hand.

9.

Clean out the filter on the pump in your pond and start feeding any fish again.

10.

Plant summer flowering bulbs, shallots, onions and early potatoes. Thanks to Paul @ Ashgate Garden Care

Investment In Peak Trails If like me you’re one of the many who like to get out in the Peak District on your bike, then this might be of interest. Investment of £3.8M is planned, and should enable four old railway tunnels to be reopened for cyclists, walkers and horse riders. The tunnels on the Monsal Trail were closed when the rail route was axed in the 1960’s. This development should link Buxton and Matlock to the Peak with a route between Bakewell and Buxton, exact routes are still to be finalised. The Peak District National Parks Authority (project managers) also aim to encourage riders to arrive by train. 85% of visitors to the White Peak (southern and central Peak District) arrive by car, only 1% arrive by bike. National Park director of operations Richard Campen said: “It will create both a spectacular cycling route and a realistic alternative to the car, enabling more people to make healthy choices for themselves and for the environment. It will also benefit local tourism businesses with rail and cycle-based travel packages.” As a major route into the Peaks, the challenge for Chatsworth Road and S40 is to recognise this as possible passing trade and not just more traffic and congestion. Work is planned to start in 2010 following approval. For more info take a look at www.peakdistrict.gov.uk.
