ISSUE 128 JUNE 2022 The community magazine for Acorn Ridge, Ashgate, Brampton, Brookside, Holymoorside, Somersall & Walton

Cover Image: Beth Salt


Intro If you want to help raise some funds for the Woodland Trust and get walking we have details on the Women's Lands End to John O'Groats Relay which is looking for women to join them on the five stages close to us.

Hi and welcome to our June edition. The month of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, celebrating a reign of 70 years. The independent businesses will be getting behind the event, dressing windows for the occasion with Union Jacks and bunting... and one or two Union Jack paper star lights, check out our rear inner page to see how you can get your hands one to add some Platinum cheer.

And we are praying for a tail wind and good weather for Andy Hibberd, who we spoke to in our April edition. A former Royal Marine and Royal Navy Commando with over a decade in the military, he and his buddy Paul Sorrell will attempt to cycle nonstop and under 50 hours from Lands End to John O' Groats later in June. We wish you both all the best with this and look forward to a catch up once the legs allow you to walk again!

Many businesses will be open throughout the weekend so please take a break from your victoria sponge and cream tea picnics to give them some support with the extra days off you'll need to fill. Apologies for the slight error in last month's crossword clue 26 down, we're only human!

Cover Artist


his month's cover artist is Bethany Salt, creatively known as Salteria. Beth is a surface pattern designer with a love for colour and imaginative illustrations. Beth gets a lot of her inspiration from her day job at Hobbycraft, who just happen to stock some her designs through their inhouse Artisan Programme. Her designs are printed onto fabric and sold online, and in stores across the country. Pretty cool! Beth graduated from Leeds University and from there went on to hone her skills in Sydney. “Living in Sydney was one of the best times of my life. I was lucky enough to do an internship in pattern design which made a huge difference to my career and future plans. I learnt so much from the design team and it definitely set me up with the skills to do what I do to this day.” Beth created two different floral designs for our covers (S41 and S40 Local Magazines) and we absolutely love them. “Floral designs are my favourite because you can create so much detail and tonnes of interesting little elements that come together to build a busy and bold pattern. I love anything nature related, I think there is so much on offer and it also enables me to be imaginative and create new florals and leafy motifs, I’m always trying to draw a new flower with each design I make.”

Page 4

similarities between designers drawing styles, there are only so many subjects you can be inspired by; and so many botanicals or animals to draw, but trying to stay in your own lane and add your own ideas is really important, it's much more fun than being the same as everyone else!” We asked Beth for top tips for Chesterfield’s aspiring artists and what the future holds for Salteria? “I would say try and hone in on what you want to do and keep it simple for yourself. Learn as much as you can about what you'd like to achieve and keep researching! I’d also say it’s very important to be willing to change your original plans a little if needed – my original plan was to solely make clutch bags, but that was very limiting so it’s important to be open to other ideas. I also think it’s really important that you enjoy what you do!” “I hope to be able to keep growing the brand and I’d love to find more places to stock my products around Chesterfield and maybe further afield. I would love to design a homeware range, bringing colourful prints into the home. In an ideal world I’d be clever enough to sew clothing as I have always liked the idea of my prints on fashion garments but I think that’s definitely on the dream list for now... maybe one day!” Whatever the future holds for Beth we are sure it will be as bright as our front cover!

Beth’s abstract, colourful style is unique which is very important to her as an artist.

“I have always enjoyed colourful abstract artwork, when I was studying for my degree it was important to develop a style that did not breach another designer’s style. Over time you naturally find a handwriting that is unique to you. Obviously, there are

What's it all about? Words & Images: Sophie & Daisy


ou may have seen the queues outside our local record store (Tallbird Records) on Saturday 23 April? What you may not know is the people queuing were waiting in anticipation to snatch up their chosen record, or records. Record Store Day (RSD) began in the US in April 2008, when over 14,000 independent record stores came together to encourage and increase the support of our small independent record stores by releasing limited edition singles, albums and much more. This day is for people who make up the diverse community of record stores, the owner, the staff, the artists and of course, the loyal customers. Unfortunately for us vinyl collectors, RSD only comes around once a year but when it does it’s considered one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar. It never fails, whatever the weather, to get people out at dawn (or earlier) to queue and get their hands on their favourite artist's one off release. One customer secured his place in the queue at Tallbird Records at 8pm the night before to ensure he got his disc of choice. If you arrive at 8am on the day you can be sure of being a long way down the queue, such is the popularity of the day! Page 8

Hundreds or artists take part in the event, this year saw Sam Fender, Taylor Swift, Noel Gallagher and even 80’s crooner Rick Astley amongst the names putting out new releases. One artist is given the honour of being an ambassador for RSD, leading us 'swiftly' onto this year’s representative who is none other than Miss Taylor Swift! Taylor Swift’s limited edition single ‘the lakes’ sold out within minutes at some stores, only 20,000 copies were distributed worldwide so fans (that includes us!) were rushing to grab one. This was our first trip to RSD and the enjoyment of being part of a community across the world, coming together for a single cause was infectious. We simply can’t wait for next year’s event. Chesterfield is home to three excellent vinyl stores, Tallbird Records at 10 Soresby Street, Vanishing Point Records at 10 Theatre Yard and Talk of the Grapevinyl at 365 Sheffield Road. Each one has it’s own unique identity and with the monthly vinyl market there is enough to keep all us vinyl lovers happy, whatever genre you’re into!

The first phase was an online directory of Chesterfield’s fabulous independent businesses, the shops, restaurants, food suppliers and so much more, all in one place. As with designers they weren't happy with v1, or v2, and recently the whole site has been updated and, I know I'm biased, but v3 now looks even better. Take a look at the new site, QR code below to make it nice and easy, it seems strange how we have COVID to thank for introducing people to QR codes! Anyway, if you’ve not checked it out, please do, and use it to find a new local business. Step away from those large corporates and give some love to the small guys. Our social media presence has seen people following our Facebook and Instagram pages and if you've not yet done so please pop across and give us a follow and a like. WIN WIN WIN!!! 'Indie £50' is our new giveaway, £50 to spend with any one of our founder members who are shown on the page opposite ... the number of founder members is growing daily so you can be sure there'll be something you'll enjoy.

a piccy, post it on Insta or Facebook and tag #unhampered, oh and you'll need to ensure you follow us on socials. We'll select a winning pic, at random at the end of June and arrange spending with the founder member business of your choice! Simple. Last year we ran a ‘Fancy a round on us?’ giveaway, that saw Ellie enjoying £50 behind the bar at The Junction. Be sure to follow us on socials as we'll be doing all sorts over the next few months. It's been great to be part of the Unhampered journey and the whole team have a real passion for small independent businesses and we'll be doing all we can to support them and encourage you to do the same. Go on, step through the door of a small business you've not tried before, I'm sure you'll end up loving it. I'd like to say a massive 'thank you' to our founder members, they're all shown on the opposite page. These are all businesses who have financially supported the first phase of the project and we have a few more almost signed up and have a few spaces left if you're interested! Stay in touch with what we’re up to and don't forget to give is a follow. Until next time. The Unhampered Team.

Words: Paul Chapman Images: Living Streets

May is Living Streets' National Walking Month. This year, Living Streets are encouraging us to try #Try20 - and walk for 20 minutes each day during May, yes I know it's almost June but we are always keen to encourage people to get out and about so we thought we'd include a few words. Living Streets is a UK charity who want a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday local journeys. Their mission is to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more, 'progress starts here: one street, one school, one step at a time' they say. Walking is an easy and accessible way to improve physical and mental health and a 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions, including certain cancers, depression, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. By swapping a short drive for a short walk, you can also help reduce air pollution, congestion and road danger - whilst saving yourself some money and getting active in the process! Living Streets contains their #Try20 tips or you can download and print your own

Page 16

#Try20 checklist to track your progress. They are also keen to see people sharing their progress and activities by sharing on social media using the hashtag! The place to go for more information is their website or social Media. Living Streets also run local groups who champion walking in the areas in which they live. Right now Chesterfield doesn't have a group but you can sign up to the Sheffield based group or if you feel passionately about walking, get in touch to see what's needed to set up a local group. We have featured a number of local walks in S40 Local and over the next few pages we remind you of each one and have included a QR code that will take you to our website for full details. We also have a chat with Clare Freeman who is organising the local leg of the Women's End to End Relay taking place from Lands End to John O'Groats starting in June, which will be raising money for The Woodland Trust.

WOMEN'S LEJOG Words: Paul Chapman Images: Love Her Wild


lare Freeman (pictured left) is looking forward to her part in the Womens’ End2End Relay, a 2,028km (1260 mile) hike taking in more than 36,000m of elevation through some of the country’s incredible wild spaces, from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Clare lives locally after moving to Chesterfield during lockdown. She coaches climbing at the Depot in Sheffield and has a real love of the outdoors. "My involvement in the hike involves organising the five local legs that pass close to Chesterfield,” Clare explains. "The adventure is being organised by Bex Band, founder of the women’s only adventure company ‘Love Her Wild’, the main purpose is to complete the relay, passing a baton between walkers, celebrating and encourage women to get outdoors." "The baton has been carved from a piece of UK birch wood, the design created by Florentina Curphey (aged 10) following a competition for girls across the UK to design the baton." Clare is looking for women to get involved in the walk. The walk is taking place over 74 days, with 15 sections, each of five days where people can join in and walk together to do a stage or more. "I would love for women over the age of 18 from Chesterfield to join me and take part in this adventure. Each of the Peak District sections are within easy reach of the town so will be a lovely day out exploring the picturesque National Park while meeting new people,” says Clare. “It’s £25 per day to join us, and the money we raise is going towards The Woodland Trust which is the largest woodland conservation charity in the UK.” There are a maximum of 24 people on each day who are accompanied by leaders and there are still spaces on each of the days as I write.

Local Stages Day 31: Sat 16 July Thorpe to Youlgreave Easy 19.5km (360m) Day 32: Sun 17 July Youlgreave to Hathersage Moderate 28.2km (630m) Day 33: Mon 18 July Hathersage to Flouch Moderate 26.6km (580m) Day 34: Tue 19 July Flouch to Marsden Moderate 27.7km (450m) Day 35: Wed 20 July Marsden to Hebden Bridge Moderate 27.2km (560m)

Also, they are after female leaders to help with covering the sections so if you are a qualified Lowland Leader, Hill and Moorland Leader or Mountain Leader, have outdoor first aid and your own insurance, please get in touch. It’s a voluntary position but travel and accommodation expenses will be covered. Many people are still struggling to get back to a life anything close to the normal we all experienced before the pandemic, striding out on one of the LEJOG stages could be just what’s needed to help on the road back to normality. Bex from Love Her Wild, says "women and minority groups are still massively underrepresented in the outdoors in many areas, so I launched Love Her Wild to create a positive space to help tackle this. Our supportive community is not interested in competition, going the furthest or being the fastest. Instead, our adventures put a focus on teamwork, building skills and having fun. There has never been a more important time for women to connect with other women and to realise the benefits that come from spending time in nature." If you’d like to get involved, adding to the total of over 400 women that have already signed up the details are below and women are welcome to join the local Derbyshire and Yorkshire Love Her Wild Facebook groups which can be found by searching on Facebook. Sat 16 to Wed 20 July www.loveherwild.com/end2end

“I had wanted to be a dentist for as long as I can remember and had worked towards this goal throughout my school years. In 1995 I qualified for the University of Sheffield and had the pleasure of gaining experience both in the private and NHS sector. Upon completing my degree, I worked across several practices in Sheffield and Chesterfield. For the past 15 years I focussed mainly on private clients as practice principal, before progressing to associate dentist, and my own practice.”

“I am now prioritising my interest in cosmetic and implant dentistry, and recently completed a certificate in implantology with the Campbell Academy, Nottingham to further enhance my skill set. I feel it’s vital that, we, as an industry never stop learning and I am very happy to be joining a great team at Kaye & Rafferty.”

“As an educational supervisor for foundation dentists for 13 years, I have been keen to learn from critical evaluation of my own work and through my peers. I am a compassionate dentist and enjoy providing care as part of a high performing team with integrity and I appreciate the contribution made by the whole team.”

Andrew jons the team in June and will be welcoming new and existing faces onto his monthly membership plan or for a consultation. Kaye & Rafferty Dental Practice | Dungannon | Watson Road Worksop | Nottinghamshire | S80 2BE | 01909 472665 Page 30

Brookfield News


Jubitree! Brookfield School was ahead of the game as it celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in early May, through a whole school picnic on the field.

he Brookfield Jubilee event enabled students and staff to celebrate together, after many restrictions due to the Covid Pandemic. To ensure it was a whole school event, we marked the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession before the official Bank Holiday as this falls during the half term break. The day began with a visit to Brookfield by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Derbyshire, John Wilson, and the Deputy Lieutenant, Brell Ewart, followed by a Year 7 assembly by members of the Old Cestrefeldians, outlining their role and work with the school, and a ceremonial planting of an oak sapling. Deputy Headteacher Mr Cronin planned the school’s celebration said, "we encouraged each tutor group to bring cakes, buns and picnic blankets so we could mark the event in true British style. It was great to see the field populated by groups representing each of our school-houses. A centre-piece of the afternoon was the planting of a rose tree by each of the house captains, which we hope future generations can appreciate. We hope these and the oak tree will become a mark of growth and stability, in the same way the names of our houses - Baslow, Birchen, Curbar, Froggatt and Gardom’s – commemorate the enduring edges of our Peak District." Students from each house learned about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and the Platinum Jubilee through Life 360 lessons and a quiz, co-ordinated by Senior Head of House, Ms Williams. She also anticipated any inclement British weather by designing a back-up plan – thankfully not needed! The event enabled us to reflect on what defines the British and global values that have been embodied through the reign of the Queen. Whatever your views on the monarchy, I’m sure we can agree that 70 years as reigning monarch is a great achievement, and celebrating this through both the school picnic and planting saplings allowed the school to acknowledge the Queen’s Jubilee in a way that future generations can appreciate.

Heathcote's Got Talent Words: Simon Paterson


osted by the hugely talented Les Morgan the Heathcotes Group talent show was an afternoon of first-class entertainment for all.

Held at Hasland Village Hall on Good Friday, the event showcased a plethora of local talent, all of which were service users at one of the Heathcotes Group Facilities. I witnessed some great performances including a reggae dance, a keyboardist, renditions of Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Tom Jones and even S Club 7! The energy in the room was infectious with every single audience member clapping and cheering each performer as they wowed the crowd with their talents and skills. The joy such an event brings to not only the service users but to the whole community is priceless. Jade Lister Co-production Chairman and guest judge had this say, "it is very important for service users to get their voices heard. I also like to see every single service user happy, and they all made me proud at the talent show. When everyone is happy, I am happy." Eight months ago, Heathcotes Allstars was born and has provided people with an opportunity to build confidence and talk about the things that really matter to them so that they shape the support people receive. "The Allstars worked together to put on the event and wanted to involve people within the community so they could make new friendships and share their talents. It was a fantastic day and wonderful to see people shine," says Keeley Denman, Quality Experience and Co-Production Lead. We can’t write about a talent show without mentioned the winners, although the real winners were everyone involved. In third place was Daniel Flowers, 2nd place went to Carrington Park and first place went to Aimee Downey. Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who performed on the day, thank you, I really enjoyed it. A big thanks to the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Tony and Sharon Rodgers for presenting the awards on the day. I hope to be invited back next year!

Virtual LEJOG Dom Stevens of Tupton will be running virtually from Lands End to John O'Groats raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society. He aims to raise over £2,000 by running 1084 miles during 2022, an average of three miles a day ... everyday this year! He will also be completing at least 10 running and obstacle races including the Chesterfield 10k, Monsal Trail Half Marathon, Bog Commander Obstacle Course and, if successful, in the ballot for the London Marathon. For every £250 raised he will also spin the give up challenge wheel. Giving up whatever food or drink it lands on until the miles are completed, imagine running LEJOG and also giving up alcohol, pizza or chocolate, to name but a few! Dom said: “I'm taking part in this challenge for Alzheimer’s Society because of the memories of my grandma, and the difficulties she experienced with dementia. It was a tough experience to understand as a 13 year old boy, why someone you really loved and cared for didn't recognise you anymore.” “Secondly for my mother in law who moved through the stages of this horrible disease at a young age, before requiring, home care, then full time care and passing away far too young.” “It is hard to describe the stresses and strains it puts on everyone in a family, going through that inevitable process and being left with a shell of the person you knew and loved.” “It’s great to think that I will be raising funds to help support people living with dementia now and to fund research to one day find a cure for dementia.” To sponsor Dom visit justgiving.com/fundraising/dom-stevens1

Crafters Bazaar A New Market is coming to Chesterfield Sunday 10th July 10am to 3pm in Chesterfield Market Place Do you, or a member of your family, have a large hoard of crafting materials that you no longer use, or have inherited? Or are you always on the lookout for good value crafting materials to try out before you buy the more expensive stuff? Then Chesterfield Crafters Bazaar may well be of interest to you. Chesterfield Crafters Bazaar is a new project from Transition Chesterfield, a network of local people concerned to find solutions to help people live more sustainably. Transition Chesterfield already run a very successful monthly Repair Café where people can get broken stuff repaired for free, reducing waste and helping people learn how to fix things. The Crafters Bazaar will further their efforts to tackle waste and allow people to raise money from selling unwanted items. Page 40

All kinds of crafting materials can be sold - fabric remnants, art and craft tools (paint brushes, drawing pencils, papercraft tools, haberdashery, yarn remnants). However, the Bazaar is not a traditional craft fair for selling ready-made items; the focus is on upcycling materials and avoiding waste. Anyone can have a stall - individual crafters, crafting groups (you can advertise your group) or charities. The Bazaar takes place on Sunday 10 July in conjunction with the regular monthly Record Fair and also the Vegan Market. If you’d like to get involved in any way or find out more, contact Transition Chesterfeld on the email below. A stall costs £10, book by email as below: CraftersBazaar@transitionchesterfield.org.uk

Garden Tips


Words: Transition Chesterfield Images: Robert Nixon Betts


his is the busy season in the garden, but, as always, the thing to remember is that it should be relaxing and fun, so don't overdo it or try to stick to some fixed timetable about when things should be done. The changing weather has to be considered. 1. Weeds are usually successful because they grow and set seed quickly, so remove them before they flower. Various types of hoe can prove to be the best solution at this time of year. An ‘onion hoe’ is often considered to be one of the most versatile tools if used regularly to cut off the young weeds before established. 2. If you have fruit, you can improve the size of individual fruits by thinning out the buds. Now is the perfect time to train the stems of blackberries and other hybrid berries on a frame or wires and pruning your currant bushes to help get maximum yields by stopping plants being overcrowded. 3. Summer bedding plants can be planted out now; soak them very thoroughly beforehand and, if the soil is dry, pour water into the planting hole and let it drain away before putting the plants in, although you should still water them in well – this helps the soil settle. 4. Greenhouses heat up very fast in even hazy sunshine, so they will require the maximum ventilation possible and you may wish to consider some form of shading from now onwards. 5. Creating a regular regime of watering, particularly for tomatoes and peppers, will prevent problems like blossom end rot. Make sure that plants receive adequate watering from this time

Page 44

of year and remember to be consistent. This is particularly important for container grown plants and growbags. 6. All danger of frost should have passed, so any tender plants that have been germinated indoors or under cover can be planted out. Lots of vegetable seeds can be sown directly into the ground now e.g. beetroot, carrots, courgettes, cucumbers, peas, pumpkins and radishes. 7. Stake plants that have a tendency to flop over, especially those with big flower heads. Ideally, the stakes should be about 20cm (8”) shorter than the eventual height of the plant, so they’re completely hidden when the plants start to flower. 8. Pinching out the growing tips of broad beans will reduce possible attack by blackfly and it will promote setting rather than excess plant growth. This technique can also be used on many other herb plants and flowers like fuchsias, a few weeks after doing this your plants are bushier and more compact. 9. Keep earthing up potato plants and if you are growing them in pots or containers remember to continue to add more compost or soil. Harvesting some early potatoes can usually start after 10-12 weeks of growth. Boiling your first new potatoes of the season reminds you why you bother to grow your own vegetables! 10. Why not try to grow herbs that have the added advantage of being friendly to butterflies? Hyssop, lavender, marjoram and thyme all provide good nectar for these pollinators and will inspire you in the kitchen too!

Business News exercise, if just to get out of the same four walls for a while. Now things are getting back to normal, and people are wanting to make a positive change, understanding the benefits of staying healthy with exercise key to achieving it. I’m seeing new clients wanting support to get them on the right track and having that support and guidance is key to keep them motivated and moving in the right direction. Its pointless wasting all this newfound motivation if you’re doing all the wrong things or even the right things wrong!”

SRW Fitness move into their new home. Words: Paul Chapman Images: Seb Walker


eb Walker from SRW Fitness has opened a new studio at Studio One The Glass Yard on Sheffield Road.

SRWFitness has been delivering personal training and expert guidance in and around Chesterfield for over 15 years now. If you cast your mind back a few years, well eight to be precise, we ran an article about one of seb’s clients and his journey that had been life changing, both physically and mentally, so his services come highly recommended.

What I love about Seb’s approach is it’s not all about promising fast results it’s about giving you the tools to maintain the results for life. “Any effective lifestyle changes needs to be sustainable and easy to maintain,” Seb adds, “quick fixes don’t work; a short-term reward will generally be followed by a drop back into bad habits and the feeling of disappointment and a sense of failure”. SRWFitness’ strapline is ‘Mind – Body - Move’, Seb explains. “We focus on three areas. The ‘Mind’, addressing the habits and choices that are hampering your progression. Secondly, ‘Body’, what you are putting in your body and how to adjust your diet that doesn’t feel like you’re depriving yourself of happiness! Then finally ‘Move’, this is the exercise that will feel more like you’re having fun and less like you’ve just enlisted in the army. If you enjoy it, you will stick to it effortlessly!” SRWFitness covers all bases for times and budgets at Studio One, they have SRW45, this is a 45-minute group session of up to 16 people with a variety of exercises that are appropriate for all levels and is a great way for people to push themselves in a group setting. SRW1-6 is an hour-long session with a maximum of six people training together, this is more like a group form of personal training and more bespoke to the individual’s

With the new dedicated space at Studio One, it has enabled Seb to offer new services, like group training sessions, circuits and HIIT classes. Also, the exciting development of small group semi-private group personal training sessions alongside the usual 1-2-1 training. Seb says, “the new space is so adaptable and allows me to offer a larger variety of services that I think my clients and new clients will love.? Seb explains that since COVID he’s seen quite a lot of change in how people approach fitness, some are still uncomfortable with large groups and prefer smaller numbers whilst some are still using online classes. “Many people started exercising during COVID and found a release from the stresses that covid brought. People made the most of the time allowed to Page 48

needs. Seb has had bookings from groups of workmates and friends who want to train together, it’s a great way for people to get the bespoke guidance whilst having the support of the group to keep them on track. Alongside the group sessions Seb also offers his 1-2-1 training plans and covers everything you need to lose weight or work towards a specific training goal.

Call in and try one of Seb’s sessions down at SRW Fitness at Studio One, The Glass Yard. Parking is right outside, free for two hours, and is £2 an hour for each additional hour once you register your vehicle with the parking app, this gives you time to call into The Batch House for a drink… but no cake obviously!

At SRWFitness however is not all about the obvious reasons why you enlist a personal trainer, Seb also helps with injury rehab, having worked with people recovering from knee and hip replacements, sporting injuries and has close links to several local physio’s and massage therapists. Seb says, “this is something I really enjoy, having had many injuries myself, I know how frustrating the recovery process is and the importance to getting the right guidance and exercise to make life easier in the long run”. Looking to the near future Seb is not resting on his laurels and is continually looking for ways to develop SRWFitness. With new indoor cycling, stretching and rehab classes plus Yoga and Pilates with sessions delivered by some of the best instructors in the area on the horizon it’s all looking very exciting. All his current classes are available on gymcatch.com, just go the home page and search ‘SRWFitness - Studio One’ so you can keep up to date with sessions and new classes.

Healthy living with Annie 90 Day Planning Workshop Words: Annie French 90-day planning has been part of my life for over 20 years. I first used it for my business when annual business planning seemed like an exercise, that when finished, was filed away for another year to collect dust. Little did I realise that a 90-day plan would become such an influence on my personal life, not just the business. Having a vision is important, and I’m still deciding what I want to be when I grow up. My way of looking at life changed in 2006 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, this certainly was not part of my plan. Facing your own mortality shakes you to the core, bringing all your values into focus and recognising who and what are the most important things in your life. Tough questions like would I get to fifty? Would I see my son graduate? I haven’t run that marathon yet, which I had been thinking about for 30 years. Life gets in the way, but we all need to recognise that life is so very short. Covid has had this effect on many of us, so now is the time to take control of this precious life of yours. I've used 90-day planning, in my academic life for research and assignments and for my wellbeing, ensuring I stay healthy and enabling me to achieve my goals and dreams. Two of the many books that I have read over the lockdowns, that have influenced my current thinking are ‘The Top Five Regrets of the Dying’ by Bronnie Ware, and ‘The 12 Week Year’ by Brian P. Morgan. Bronne Ware

Page 50

describes the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom. Brian Moran writes about this powerful approach to goal achievement, breaking the year down into four quarters makes life easier to handle. Combining my personal experience and knowledge, I am gathering a group of like-minded people who have a vision and want to achieve their dreams, in a monthly group workshop, designed to help them create their vision, achieve their goals whilst maintaining their health and wellbeing. 90Day Planning helps you to achieve your personal, work and business goals. It helps you to plan weekly time blocks for all those important tasks that will get you closer to your dream, identify habits that may be holding you back, help you to find your purpose and provide the all-important accountability framework. I have delivered 90-day planning workshops for small businesses and teams, helping them achieve their organisational objectives and using their time wisely whilst maintaining a well-balanced life. I have always been a planner and love productivity, since my recovery I have gone on to run three marathons, proudly achieved a BA and MA, made my dream of being a yoga teacher come true, but most importantly I saw my son graduate. Join us each month with like-minded people who want to achieve their dreams.

SPIRE SPOOKS Words: Simon Paterson Images: Spire Spooks


alking through town last month we happened to stumble across a miniature ghost figurine. Keen to know more I launched my own investigation and after some sterling detective work (the likes of Poirot would be proud of), I found Spire Spooks on Instagram. Spire Spooks is a local lady who wishes to remain anonymous (very mysterious) but was more than happy to answer my questions. Below are the findings of my investigation: Who is Spire Spooks and what is the purpose of this project? "I am a local artist here in Chesterfield and my aim is to spread the 'spirit' of happiness. I do this by hiding model ghost figurines in town for people to find, along with a little note attached to each ghost that wishes the finder good luck and happiness." Do you make the ghosts yourself? 'I make all of the ghosts myself, and I have my own moulds which give the ghosts a unique form. Then they are all hand painted and glossed. Very recently I partnered with another local artist to make a highly detailed tattoo art ghost, which we are planning to auction off for charity." Can we keep the one we found? "Some people re-hide the ghosts for other people to find, and some people take their ghost home to keep as a talisman, either option is encouraged." Do you have any plans to sell your creations? "I do sell the ghosts at artisan markets (Chesterfield), but I have never been in this to make profit. Local artisan markets are a good way to gain more interest and popularity. It also allows me to raise some money to buy more equipment to continue making ghosts ready to hide. I wish only to bring smiles to people who might happen to stumble across a hidden ghost whilst out and about in Chesterfield Town. I often receive messages from people who live elsewhere, or who cannot find a ghost asking if they can purchase one from me. I always want to make people smile so I always do my best to get a ghost to everybody who wants one." Will you reveal your true identity to our readers? "I wish to remain anonymous, and so I go by my job title only - The Grim Reaper. I also use disguises when hiding these ghosts and when I make videos and attend local markets with them. I'm not here for personal followers or recognition. I simply wish to create a bit of joy and happiness in the world." I love this social action project. There are good people out there doing great things, we just need to look for them!

ECHOES: Reverberations across millennia An exhibition by Ann Bates Words: Ann Bates Images: Barry Thomas I am a ceramicist living and working in Matlock, Derbyshire and have been offered the opportunity to exhibit my work at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from 23 July to 8 October 2022. Briefly, the exhibition 'ECHOES: reverberations across millennia', will aim to show a connection between Neolithic and modern-day practices of honouring the dead. In Neolithic times, five thousand years ago, barrows were built to honour the dead. These stone monuments were used as tombs where the remains of individuals could be placed. The revival of barrow building in the second decade of 21st century is providing meaningful, monumental places for people to come together to remember loved ones. The first to be built was The Long Barrow in Wiltshire; inside this monument are chambers with niches where funerary urns containing cremated remains can be placed. I specialise in making hand-built ceramic funerary urns formed in the same way that our ancestors would have done using the coiling method of making. The urns for the exhibition will be decorated with marks using tools that would have been available in Neolithic times such as Antler shards, pointed sticks and bone. However, they are not intended as replicas, rather an interpretation for the 21st century as are the modernday barrows.

Who you say? Their journey began one Summer day in 2000 when John Wheeler and Mike Daly drank roughly enough whiskey to float a battleship from the Florida Coast over to Portugal and back and decided to play around in John’s studio. Hayseed Dixie have evolved into a proper force, one that most people either love, hate, or have never heard of. Their repertoire consists of both original material and reinterpretations of previously rendered songs - and global physical sales in excess of half a million copies, with over 1,200 live shows in 31 different countries. Hayseed Dixie offer up their 15th studio album, a collection of both original songs and reinterpretations of R&B and Soul classics. ‘Free Your Mind And Your Grass Will Follow’ is out now on Hayseed Dixie Records.

Sport Let's recap. So, the problem in my opinion (and yes Chesterfield, we have a problem even though we are in the playoffs) is that Rowe left, not that Cook has taken over. Rowe clearly took with him the winning formula which Cook has yet to fathom. Or did Cook lose the dressing room early on?

It's the playoffs!

Sick bucket?!! I hear you ask. let me explain.

Following the recent run of form since Cook took charge of the team (that Rowe had assembled) Chesterfield have only won 4, drawn 5 and lost 9. Yes, injuries had played a big part in this but as Cook first admitted after the Bromley defeat and after most defeats to the media, we aren't good enough and concede soft goals.

During the press conference before the Woking game, Paul said that getting a place in the playoffs if we beat Woking would make him "physically sick" as he didn't feel we deserved to be there given our recent results.

Is it wise to criticize your players publicly? Debate that yourself. CFC didn’t seem to step up to win the games when needed and make basic errors. So again, do the players want to play for him?

To be honest, I can see his point. At the time of writing, it is 6pm on Sunday 15th May 2022. Chesterfield FC have just played their final league game at home to Woking and we drew 0-0. The first half was poor and the second was better with a few chances. To be honest, we did amazingly make the playoffs, well scrape through to be precise. To be blunt, we miss the likes of Tshimanga.

CFC slipped down the league but was that due to the new manager or due to just being exhausted at the end of a weird, topsy-turvy season? Either way, Cook clearly is not happy as the Chesterfield boss. But will he get us promoted?

Words & Images: Michael South Hello, my fellow Spireites. There's good news and bad news. The good news is, that we made the playoffs! The bad? Paul Cook needs a sick bucket.

Paul Cook has it all to do now with the limited players due to injury, to build a winning football squad for the playoffs. But we need to score to get into League Two, it’s that simple. We haven’t scored in the last three games. CFC fans, myself included, still can't believe the turnaround in form since Paul Cook took charge from Rowe, but somehow, we have made it. Yes, every football manager is different. Yes, every football manager has his own way of working. From his right-hand man and backroom staff to his own choice of players and his own tactics. Yes, it's not as it once was down at the club nowadays since the departure of James Rowe, but with what was handed to Paul Cook for his reprise a few months ago, he has definitely had to hit the ground running.

I am a huge Paul Cook fan, don't get me wrong, but Cook has yet to stamp his mark on the club and bring in his own players to fit around his way of management including his famous player formation. We need it to come ASAP, but I’m sure It will come next season regardless of the league we end up in. Like any manager at a new club, time is key to mould a team. I just hope and pray Cook stays for the long term and can see us into League one as he has promised in the media recently. He’s done it before. Yes, he is a different type of manager than Rowe, which is a good thing if you know what I mean. For now, though, we have to try and take solace in the progress the Spireites have made since 2020. At least we still have a club. I've said before that the club is in a much better place nowadays compared to its recent past… but getting promoted would be nice, wouldn’t it?! COYB’s!

Parting Shot

S40 Celebrates the Big 70 with a Show of Stars Local independent shops and businesses have been preparing for the Platinum Jubilee by teaming up with fellow Brampton-based indie business Paperstarlights – who have produced a limited edition run of their Union Jack star lanterns for the Big 70. Paperstarlights has become something of a local feature in recent years - with their multi-coloured lanterns popping up in the windows of businesses and homes across town and beyond. Sharing their light with passersby, the stars have helped keep spirits up and created connections across the town’s independent businesses. What's more they’ve been delivering the stars on a restored vintage bicycle dating back to the iconic Silver Jubilee year of 1977. Getting Fit for a Queen, as they put it... Look out for the Jubilee stars in a window near you. They’re the perfect way to theme your Jubilee street party and celebrate everything that’s Cool Britannia! If you would like your own star you can can pick one up while stocks last from Twelfth Craft, 1 Iron Gate, The Shambles, Londis on Chatsworth Road, Ashgate Hospice Furniture shop on Storforth Lane or direct from: www.paperstarlights.com

Pictured are: Simon at the Cheese Factor, Matt from Ginspired, Lee the Royal Mail postie delivering stars, Andy Jupp setting off for star deliveries from The Britannia Inn, the Ashgate Hospice Furniture & Coffee Co, Hasland and hanging out at Maison Mes Amis.
