ISSUE 148 JUNE 2024
Cover: Lucie Maycock

Hi all and welcome to our June edition.

I always get a bit excited for June, I'm a fan of the summer solstice you see. I love marking the day in some way, it doesn't have to be a massive gesture but I always get a sense of all round loveliness knowing I've done something. It usually involves a bike ride to be honest, just getting up early to ride out and watch the sunrise or a quick blast along Curbar Edge at the end of the say as day turns to night... at about 10:30pm!

The day also reminds me of a dear friend who was tragically taken from this world in a freak cycling accident the day before the summer solstice, so a double meaning as I cycle along, imagining myself chasing his back wheel as I did all those years ago. I hope the trails are good up there Jase.

A thanks go to all those who have donated your fivers when placing classified adverts. I have again donated £115 to Ashgate Hospice as a result. I think the grand total must now be over £500. Keep on letting me have your items to sell, free under £200, £5 donation for anything over; and £5 for a picture.

An apology. Somehow, I appear to have missed off the crosswords contact details from the last few editions! I'm not 100% sure why this has happened so it's now back and will hopefully remain that way going forward.

I have said goodbye to my Twitter or 'X' account this month, I can't remember when I last posted anything so it's gone. Social Media is something I know I should do but it's a full-time job just doing the physical magazine, so one less thing to worry about is welcomed!

Please note I have changed the dates for the July copy, due to personal reasons it's been pulled forward a week to 14 June copy and delivery by 7 July. There will then be a seven week gap between editions, with a copy date of Friday 2 August and delivery by Sunday 25 August for the following, Summer edition.

I think that's it for now? Have a great start of summer and look out for the July edition dropping through your letter box in four weeks time.

Take care.

Lucie Maycock

Photography (dansmithphoto@proton.me)

Lucie Maycock’s artistic journey started realistically at Chesterfield College. "School never really worked for me," says Lucie, "I simply didn’t fit the box that education had made."

Lucie attended Chesterfield College to study Art Foundation in 2001 and it was here that she specialised in Photography, later studying for a degree. "After Uni, I knew I wanted to do something creative but like so many I didn’t know what. I started working for my Dad doing Graphic Design, Web and SEO stuff. It was OK, it allowed me to use some of my creative skills and it very quickly made me realise I’m never going to be cut out for office work," laughs Lucie.

"I remember my sister pointed out youth work to me, I didn’t really know what it was about, so I went and did some digging.

"I volunteered for a girl’s group in Brampton and was hooked! I went on to work in all different aspects of youth work and I loved it."

Lucie landed her dream job at Donut Creative Arts Studio working in youth arts development which covered designing and developing new strands of artistic work across all media and genres working with young people, then delivering the results, it was here that she started to specialise in drama and visual arts.

"I spent 12 years at Donut," says Lucie "it was the making of me, today I’m freelance because sadly the Donut Creative Arts Centre didn’t survive post COVID and closed their doors.

"I bought a van, loaded it with creative stuff and started working from home."

Today Lucie still focuses on working with young people, a role she clearly loves. "I work with charities, organisations, local authorities and creative agencies to co-ordinate all sorts of artistic sessions and workshops, 1-2-1s, school and youth club activities and projects, all in local community settings. I provide school holiday sessions offering exciting things to do in all kinds of settings.

"My artforms include spray painting, printmaking, painting, crafts, photography, murals, crafts, and I love mannequins, they allow people to be expressive in so many ways. I use digital technologies, for example the recent ‘Be Creative Bolsover’ project used many aspects of digital technology to create art.

"My passion is young people, youth social action through art, working with a group of young people to discover the things that matter in their world. I get them to focus locally, at a community level and wider, politics, the environment, parenting, getting them to engage and convey their messages through art.

"My present group are presenting me a mixed bag, better and more frequent buses, too much dog poo, body image, mental wellbeing, political issues, environmental problems, we’re looking at how the individuals involved can use different art forms to get their message across.

"I have some people who I’ve known through art since they were 11 years old who are now young adults, through university, who still call in to catch up. It’s great to see them growing up, it’s the best part of what I do, knowing I may have had some influence in getting them started in life."

Lucie also offers a more direct and personal service with 1-2-1 and home schooling sessions working directly with families and young people. Alongside the funded activities Lucie gives up her spare time to support local causes, Monkey Park, Cannon Mill and Junction Arts. "I want to do all I can to influence and assist these projects, the present lack of funding for the arts is appalling so through these projects I can ensure creativity is on the priority list for the local area," says Lucie.

My contact with Lucie started through her work at Donut but today we share space down at West Studios on Sheffield Road where Lucie has been a tenant for a couple of years… the contents of her van, surrounding us in her studio space!

Lucie's cover is inspired by Linacre woods and the spaces around us that are filled with bluebells at this time of year. "I remember walking through the colourful woods with my mum when I was growing up, nature, shapes, smells, colours all feeding my senses, starting me on my creative journey at an early age.

Lucie finished by adding that she was told she would not be able to make a living as an artist, working class people just don’t make it in the art world. "Thing is it’s not all about selling paintings for thousands of pounds, there are so many ways you can engage your creative self and forge a living through art, the digital landscape is creating new opportunities all the time, if you have a vision of sitting working in a studio, stick with it and keep focused, try at all costs to make your dream a reality, I am living proof it is possible."

As a family one thing we've hoped to see is the Aurora Borealis - The Northern Lights. We've been lucky enough to travel to Finland and Iceland, both quite northerly and somewhere the displays feature regularly, but they've always eluded us! So imagine the levels of excitement a week or two ago when my son shouts, 'the Northern Lights are out!'.

His friend was at a party in Bamford, in the back garden when the display started, he sent messages to everyone he knew and within minutes we were stood in the back garden looking at the display mother nature was putting on for us.


We tried to snap a few photos, quickly discovering that older phone cameras just don't pick them up but a later phone works great, even my old digital SLR struggled, I didn't think to grab a tripod!

Luckily for us all, local photographer Andy Childs also had news of the event and was out and about in the Peak District with his kit.

All the pics shown come thanks to Andy and I love his selfie on Curbar Edge, lucky chap.

According to space.com 'We may have just witnessed some of the strongest auroras in 500 years'. Wow, and we were fortunate enough to witness it.

The forecast for the following night remained high and if you drove into the Peaks around midnight you would not have been alone. The queues of cars driving round surprise view stretched back past the Fox House and Longshaw, only to be disappointed.

Huge thanks to Andy for the pictures and I can only hope that we get another chance to witness the Aurora Borealis in the future.

Tallbird & Gasoline Break Records!

Frank Turner's record-breaking tour

Words: Simon Paterson

Images: Tallbird Records & Gasoline Bar

Across the UK, grassroots music venues are closing down at an alarming rate. To shed light on this issue and support the Music Venue Trust, world-renowned singer-songwriter Frank Turner embarked on a world record attempt, collaborating with two fantastic independent businesses along the way.

From headlining Wembley Stadium to delivering an unforgettable performance at the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony orchestrated by Danny Boyle, and achieving several top five albums, Frank Turner's resume is undeniably remarkable.

So... when Maria at Tallbird Records was approached about him playing a gig in Chesterfield as part of a world record attempt, she seized the opportunity to be a part of something significant and immediately secured the perfect venue.

“I was contacted by the company that distributes Frank's albums in February asking if we'd like to be included as one of the shops in Frank's record-breaking attempt at playing gigs in 15 separate towns and cities across the UK. Naturally, I jumped at the chance of bringing such a great musician and songwriter to Chesterfield, the only problem being, that the shop was too small to accommodate the number of people who would want to come along. As the Gasoline Bar is just up the road and experienced at putting on live music, it seemed like the perfect venue to host the event, so it turned out to be! Tickets went on sale via our website selling out in under three hours! It was a real pleasure and proud moment playing my part in Frank's record-breaking endeavour and putting Chesterfield on his tour itinerary. Frank played a great set (albeit a short one - he still had around a dozen shows ahead of him at this point and had to rush off in his taxi) and even did my favourite track off the new album 'I'm In Love With The Girl From The Record Shop' - well, a girl can dream, smiles Maria.

Frank went on to beat the previous record of ten gigs in ten different cities/towns, finishing in Southampton with a grand total of 15 in 24 hours! I was lucky enough to attend the Chesterfield gig at Gasoline and witness Frank belt out classics

such as ‘If ever I stray’ and ‘Undefeated’ from his latest album that is (at the time of writing) number three in the charts. An unforgettable evening at a packed local music venue.

Please continue to support our local, live music venues so they are here for generations to come. See you at the next gig!

Frank Turner's new album 'Undefeated' is available in various formats at Tallbird Records.

Running: Noun - is a method of terrestrial locomotion by which humans move rapidly on foot. Running is a gait with an aerial phase in which all feet are above the ground - this contrasts with walking!

Malcolm Rose and Ann Barker are both runners, members of the North Derbyshire Running Club, and they are very good ones at that. Malcolm is this year’s bronze medal winner in the Male M70 (that’s male aged 70 and over) England v Wales Masters 10K at Birmingham and Ann represented England at the same event in the Women’s W60 race, coming 7th in her category.

Malcolm’s introduction to running isn’t what you’d expect, his early running days as a child allowed him to pocket his school bus fare by running there! It wasn’t until much later in life that he took to running as a serious sport.

“I’ve only run properly for the last eight years,” explains Malcolm. “I have always suffered lower back pain since my 20’s and although it hospitalised me at times no doctor or consultant could ever offer me any effective advice.

“A friend introduced me to a book, ‘Treat Your Own Back’ by Robin McKenzie. This changed my life. The exercises slowly allowed me to bring the pain under control, it’s not cured but since my early 60’s it became manageable.”

Malcolm had found running and this love of running caused him to look for a way to celebrate.

“I targeted a 10k run in Sheffield and to my surprise, won my category. I was approached by a local running club but eventually joined Penistone Footpath Runners & AC.”

In 2022 Malcolm moved from Stocksbridge to Holymoorside and was looking for a local club, he'd run the Dronfield 10K the year before and had spotted North Derbyshire Running Club jerseys. “I’d chatted to people from the club, and they all seemed really friendly and approachable,” says Malcolm. “I felt welcomed and included from the start and am now the new member coordinator at the club.”

Malcolm’s competitive journey started with him beating the qualifying times for his age categories.

“To represent England, you need to qualify inside the required time and win in the top three,” he explains. “I finished in second place and qualified doing a race in Brighton, it was a terrible day, a howling gale was blowing with the sea crashing over the runners!

“My first race representing England was Chester in 2023, I entered the V70 category, and won the Chester 10K in my age category.” Malcolm followed this up with a 3rd place at the Birmingham event this year.

Ann, from Walton, has been running for years. Although we spoke about her recent events, she just happened to mention getting her county colours at age 38 and competing at Elite level in 2002 running marathons alongside Paula Radcliffe! The best part of being in the elite squad, no toilet queues apparently.

“I completed the first Chesterfield 10k in 2021 and a friend said what about trying out for England as my time was competitive,” says Ann. “I’d never considered this, as you get older, niggles and injuries affect you so easily.

“I entered the Telford 10K event in 2021, driving through a blizzard but unfortunately didn’t qualify there. I then went to Knutsford in October last year and although I finished 3rd the chip timing pushed me down to 4th so I didn’t qualify again.

“I wasn’t to be beaten, so entered the Leicester event in March this year, got a personal best for this era and came 2nd, so obtained my qualification to run for England at Birmingham.”

Finishing 7th at this event Ann was so proud to pull on an England vest and both her and Malcom talk of the overwhelming support from other runners and crowds at events across the UK. “It’s great to revel in the fact that you’re performing at an Elite level,” says Ann, remembering her days at age category events when you set off from the Elite pen but then await the stampede from younger club runners as 14,000 entrants are released!

Page 16 www.chesterfieldlocal.com Sport

“All these runners are your best mates on the day but when the gun goes, you’re all there to do the same job whether you’re age 35 or 85,” says Malcolm.

What struck me about the pair was how enthusiastic they both were about their running. Both are running well, both admit to not being spring chickens, and both are loving it. “What’s great about what we do is the ability to compete at any age due to the age category. It really is addictive, when you find your stride, whatever your age it feels great, and with the support of a good local club they can really help add to the enjoyment,’ says Ann.

If you’re inspired to put on some trainers and go for a run the NHS Couch to 5k app is a great starting point, it takes you through a gradual program from a gentle walk to running for 5k in just nine weeks. Once there you have the choice of a couple of local Parkruns at Poolsbrook Country park or Hassop Station (Monsal Trail) or you can attend the North Derbyshire Running Club.

In addition, the North Derbyshire Running Club offer a free support program to help you through the Couch to 5K, they also hold a monthly timed 5k at Queens Park on the first Saturday of the month, ‘No Walk in The Park’, like Parkrun at a cost of £5 a run.

Over to you, I might even see you on the trails!

You Turn

Can you ever say no to a career change?

The retirement age is increasing, people are living and working for longer. This got me thinking is it still the mindset that you gain an education and career in a single profession and resign yourself to being in that sector of employment for the rest of your working life? Is it ever too late to do a career U turn?

Following COVID a lot of employers and companies re-evaluated their working practices including working from home, Hybrid working and changes to working hours to allow employees the flexibility of a better work/life balance.

And this is where it all started for me. At the end of 2023 I decided that after 20 years in the legal sector I wanted a fresh challenge. It was a daunting prospect but something that I needed to do for myself and my family. As a mum of four it is hard to think of a time when I didn’t have to juggle a full-time career, kids and the dreaded school holidays!

I still remember leaving school at 16 with no clue as to what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I tried several careers between the ages of 13 and 18 including hairdressing and hospitality. It was only by sheer chance during an interview at the local careers centre that I was asked with my interests and skills whether I had ever considered a career in Law. I laughed when she said it. Me? Working in Law? I had always had an interest in criminal law and criminology but didn’t have the first clue on where to start. I initially looked at typing and secretarial roles and the careers centre managed to secure me a place at a local legal practice for three months of work experience training. I was bitten immediately with the ‘Law’ bug and decided after my training ended that I wanted to pursue a career in the legal field.

Twenty years later and after a lot of blood, sweat, tears and sheer determination I had progressed from a family and criminal secretary to the head of a department for one of the largest legal firms in the East Midlands. However, as I turned 40 last year, I realised that my love for my career was starting to waiver and this along with the added pressure of juggling a family, working 50-60 hours weeks, legal cutbacks and the state of the UK justice system; I pined for a better work/life balance.

And so, I took the leap. I sat during evenings and weekends updating my CV and applying for work, away from the legal sector. I knew I could walk into another legal firm and do the job I had been trained to do standing on my head, but I didn’t want to. So many fears went through my head. Would I find another job that I would settle into? Would prospective employers even look at my application? Would I be seen to be over/under qualified? I knew that I had many transferable skills, and I knew that I had to focus my attention on what I could bring to prospective employers. After months of applying on job websites, online applications and speaking with recruitment agencies I was offered a position within the NHS. Five months into my new role and I have continued to gain new skills and experience. I am enjoying more time at home with my family and friends, and I hope that, as with my law career, I will continue to expand on my skills and progress within the NHS and the healthcare sector. I have also always had a passion for writing and I am keen to also embrace this hobby during my free time including starting an online blog, writing a book and hopefully (with the help of Simon and Paul) be allowed to publish the occasional column within the S40 and S41 Local magazines.

Interviewers always ask the million-dollar question “Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?” I think it is hard for anyone to answer that question because the answer is we simply don’t know. If I think back to five years ago would I have thought that I would have turned my back on law? Not at all but do I now think I made the right decision? Absolutely.

And so in answer to the question is it ever too late to have a career U turn? I think, as with anything in this life, if you have a determination and passion and you want to make that change there is nothing stopping you. I am excited to see what the future holds for me and I hope that the future of my working life is as enjoyable as my past.

Thank you for reading.

Peak Rangers

Celebrate 70 Years

Peak District rangers returned to their roots to mark their 70th anniversary.

As part of the celebrations, National Park rangers recreated a photograph taken outside Edale’s Old Nags Head pub, where the original service was launched on Good Friday, 16 April 1954.

The Peak District was the UK’s original national park - designated on 17 April 1951 - and led the way with the creation of what would become the country’s first ranger service.

Tom Tomlinson was appointed the Peak District’s first national park warden in January 1954 and a warden service of part-time volunteers was created three months later.

Peak District National Park Authority chair, Ken Smith, said: “In the first year of the service, there were 500 volunteers, coming out at weekends to look after the countryside, to enforce the byelaws and encourage people to enjoy the National Park in a responsible way.

“In many respects, the role of rangers today is not that different to what it was 70 years ago. Rangers have a salutary role, encouraging people to do the right thing in the countryside.”

Ranger team manager Andy Farmer added: “I’ve always been very proud to work with the ranger service. We play a vital role, serving the interests of the place, our communities and our visitors.”

In the early days of the service, warden briefings took place in the Old Nags Head, Edale, where landlord and access campaigner Fred Heardman had also set up the Peak District’s first information service in the snug.

Over the years, the role of wardens developed to include wider engagement, including leading walks, conservation and safety work. The term ‘ranger’ was first used during the 1980s.

Today the Peak District National Park Authority employs 28 rangers – including specialist rangers who work on its trails or with education groups – and is grateful for the hard work and commitment of around 230 volunteers.

Left picture shows volunteer wardens at the launch of the service in April 1954 and below, rangers celebrate the 70th anniversary in April 2024. Immediately below the former Peak District National Park ranger badge.

The Age of Aquarius

Chesterfield’s legendary Aquarius club in a starring role once again!

Words & Images:

Press Release

One of the town’s most famous nightclubs is brought back to life this week in a brand new book. ‘Remembering The Aquarius’ tells the story of the iconic cabaret club that first opened in 1972. The book is full of exclusive interviews, rare photos and memorabilia relating to the club that outlasted many of its peers and ran for nearly a quarter of a century.

The Aquarius was an instant hit when it opened on the back of the cabaret craze that swept the country in the late 1960s. The Spanish-themed venue brought some of the biggest names in entertainment to perform for local audiences.

Bob Monkhouse, Charlie Williams, the Drifters, Ken Dodd and scores of other renowned artists all wowed local crowds in the 1970s and 1980s, with coaches coming from miles around to experience the atmosphere.

Cannon & Ball famously did their first ever headline show at the venue, even Oliver Reed turned up as a punter one night.

Neil Anderson of the Dirty Stop Outs put the book together and said, “Few venues are remembered with as much fondness as the Aquarius. This book brings together amazing memories and forgotten stories from the people that were there. Most cabaret clubs were falling on hard times as tastes changed by the end of the 1970s but the Aquarius just kept going – in fact it seemed to get even more popular in the 1980s. This is its definite story.”

The book includes contributions from former employees, entertainers and club-goers.

Robin Colvill of the hit comedy troupe, the Grumbleweeds, says the venue played a key role in their success: “We used to do a lot of gigs at the Aquarius – we’d perform three to four weeks every year. We were very popular – it was always heaving. Because of the Aquarius, we did a BBC Radio show and that led to a TV show.”

The book has been produced as part of a wider National Lottery Heritage Fund project to celebrate the venue and its legacy.

‘Remembering The Aquarius’ costs just £11.95 (plus P&P) and is available from the website shown (or scan the QR code) and all good bookshops.


Courtesy of Neil Anderson from Dirty Stop Outs we have a copy of the book to give away to a lucky reader.

Despite having a severe visual impairment, he has gathered interesting stories and anecdotes on many of the Chesterfield pubs and offers Great Historic Pub Tours of the Brampton Mile through the summer. Following a successful 2023 season, Shaun has decided to rearrange the tour so that every pub gets 30 minutes in the spotlight. A potted history presentation of around three minutes is given for each pub before going in for a drink and sometimes, a little history about some of the pubs that have been closed and demolished, helping to keep their memory alive.

The extraordinary thing is, Shaun does this for 30 different venues from memory as he can't read notes. "Chesterfield’s Brampton Mile has been a famous rite of passage and the source of many madcap stories for as long as anyone can remember. It was a formidable challenge but having lost many of the pubs over the years, these days it’s much more achievable and it’s not even a mile," says Shaun.

There are 14 pubs, a microbrewery and a micro pub, as well as three bar restaurants remaining on the Brampton Mile. "The Pub Crawl can take up to eight hours," says Shaun. "The Brampton Mile is always changing. This year, we have two fully refurbished pubs, The Duke and The Mile, plus interesting anecdotes about the October 2023 floods and a fire that nearly consumed an old favourite built in 1842".

These historic Pub Crawls take place on the first Saturday, remaining are 6 July, 3 August and 7 September, starting at 12:30pm, from The Star on Chatsworth Road. The cost is £8 per person and you can book by texting Shaun on 07908 183160. Shaun says, "booking is really important, if we don’t get enough bookings, we can’t provide a tour, it's free to book and it’s cash only on the day".

For questions and more information on this Brampton Mile Pub Crawl and the other history tours provided by Shaun, you can follow his page on Facebook, search for @CGHPT or Chesterfield Great Historic Pub Tour.

Chesterfield’s Walton Peak Flying High Primary & Nursery Academy is GOOD in all areas says Ofsted!

Words & Images: WPFHA

Inspectors said, ‘Parents and carers know that staff go the extra mile to make sure that pupils feel valued and happy.’

Walton Peak Flying High Primary & Nursery Academy is celebrating its recent Ofsted inspection which graded the school Good in all areas.

Inspectors said ‘This school has improved markedly in recent years. Pupils appreciate the school’s warm and welcoming environment, where everyone and everyday matters. Parents and carers know that staff go the extra mile to make sure that pupils feel valued and happy. Pupils want to come to school because, as one of them was eager to explain, ‘it will make them smart for the future’.’

The academy, based on Whitecotes Lane, Walton, Chesterfield, is a member of the Flying High Partnership, of which the report commented, ‘Since joining this multi-academy trust, swift actions have been taken to bring about much-needed improvements across all aspects of the school’s provision. As a result of this work, the school has been transformed.’

Mark Parkinson is Headteacher at Walton Peak Flying High Primary & Nursery Academy and he said he was delighted to share the news with the school community. “We are particularly proud that the report acknowledges the commitment of the staff and culture of the school. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and also share a thank you to

the staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure the school’s values and expectations have been embedded over the last three years. We see it as a privilege to serve the community of Walton Peak and to work with our fantastic children daily.”

Staff are described as sharing a strong ‘team spirit’ and the academy’s safeguarding is effective. The inspectors go on to say, ‘Pupils with special educational needs and/ or disabilities (SEND) get a good deal. The needs of these pupils are identified precisely. Appropriate strategies are used to help most of these pupils follow the same curriculum as their peers.’

The report says that ‘Developing pupils’ love of language is a key priority’ at the academy and that, ‘Children in the early years love playing together, particularly in the well-resourced outdoor environment.’

Inspectors said, ‘Pupils appreciate the school’s warm and welcoming environment, where everyone and everyday matters. Parents and carers know that staff go the extra mile to make sure that pupils feel valued and happy.’

Headteacher Mark Parkinson said, “We are grateful to our school community for its ongoing support and to our fantastic children and staff. We will continue to work to improve the school, to ensure all of our children get the very best start in life”.

The vision of St John's Ambulance is a world where everyone is first aid confident and where everyone is ready and able to respond – and save lives.

Garden Tips

June's Tips...

For a sustainable garden

Words & Images: Transition Chesterfield, Inspire Community Garden & Amy Truscott

An incredibly wet, but mainly mild winter, is finally behind us and there have been huge spurts of growth when the sun has come out. There’s stacks to do!

1. Weeds are successful because they grow and set seed quickly, so hoe them out of beds or pick out with a trowel if not possible, but keep them in check.

2. If you have fruit trees, you can improve the size of individual fruit by thinning out the buds. Quite a lot will fall anyway, but for eating apples aim for 1 bud per cluster, with about 15cm (6”) between clusters, and for cookers about 20cm (8”). Pears can be two buds per cluster, again about 15cm apart, and plums should be 8cm (about 3”) apart.

3. ‘No Mow May’, where people are encouraged to let their lawns grow longer to help nature may be over, but you can still encourage pollinators and the growth of wildflowers by leaving some patches of grass unmown. Consider leaving a grassy strip along hedgerows and fences or leave it all but just mow a strip round the edge of the lawn to neaten it off.

4. Once roses start flowering, they will need regular dead-heading to produce a succession of flowers.

5. Soft fruits – mainly gooseberries and currants – should be pruned now, as well as any spring-flowering shrubs.

6. At the time of writing we hadn’t had frost since February, so any tender plants that have been germinated indoors or under cover can be planted out. Lots of vegetable seeds can now be sown directly into the ground, to produce a succession of crops.

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.

8. Keep an eye on anything growing in containers, to make sure they don’t dry out. Don’t rely on rain to provide the water, and remember that in a days clear sunshine plants transpire lots of water, so drying out the soil. It’s much harder to re-wet containers once they’ve dried out, as the water runs straight through.

9. Some early salads and herbs should be ready for picking; keep sowing them for regular harvesting.

10. Houseplants should be moved away from anywhere where they will get direct sun, and will need regular watering and feeding.

The Jewel in Derbyshire's Crown

A history of Cricket at Queen's Park

Words & Images: Friends of Queen's Park Cricket

Local author, David Griffin has written the definitive book about cricket played in Queen’s Park, Chesterfield.

Harold ‘Dickie’ Bird was umpiring when Derbyshire played the Indians’ touring side at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield in 1990. He later recalled: “I was stood at square leg and Sachin Tendulkar said to me: "Have you ever seen anything nicer?" The flowers were in full bloom, the trees were marvellous, and we looked through to see the crooked spire. It was beautiful.”

Some of the finest players in the history of the game have played cricket in the delightful setting of Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, while many recreational cricketers have also walked in their footsteps on the same, hallowed turf.

To celebrate the wonderful cricketing history of this famous ground, The Friends of Queen’s Park Cricket commissioned this book to provide a comprehensive and definitive account of cricket, and much more, in the Park over the past 125 years.

Fully illustrated and containing detailed reports on a host of memorable matches, there are recollections from such cricketing luminaries as Michael Holding, Geoff Boycott, Bob Taylor, Mohammad Azharuddin, Kim Barnett, Peter Kirsten, John Wright and many more.

Here is an extract from the book where Geoffrey Boycott recounts his discussion with Brian Clough at Queen’s Park.

"I also recall my friend Brian Clough coming to see me play against Derbyshire at Chesterfield in 1973. It was a glorious sunny day, perfect for batting and I was looking forward to the game. Alan Ward, who was fast, bowled this short ball and I hit it like a rocket out of the middle straight to Brian Bolus fielding at midwicket. I was mortified. On a perfect day for batting, I was out for four. I saw Brian (Clough) later and told him how disappointed I was. He replied: 'Look, I’ve been sat on the balcony with your players and they’re wondering if they’ll ever score one century. But even though you failed today, you’ll get a hundred next week, or the week after, because you’re that

good.' Cloughie’s words made me feel ten feet tall and it made me realise what qualities he had as a manager."

David Griffin also reports on the visits of the legendary W G Grace to Queen’s Park.

"In 1901 WG Grace made the first of two appearances at Chesterfield, both of which were for London County. Grace, along with Colin Cowdrey, Don Bradman and Ranjitsinhji, never scored a century against Derbyshire, and in a rainshortened drawn match the great man was run out for nought in his only innings and took one wicket. Grace only faced a single delivery as Bill Storer took five for 20 after rain had ruled out any play on the scheduled opening day.

"Despite the rain, a reasonable crowd had gathered in anticipation of seeing Grace, and Derbyshire’s star Charles Ollivierre, with The Sheffield Evening Telegraph reporting that'… there were between 500 and 600 people present…' as '…spectators had the opportunity of watching Dr WG Grace and CA Ollivierre practising. Neither had any difficulty in securing amateur bowlers and fielders…'"

Among those happy to wax lyrical about Queen’s Park was Yorkshire’s Joe Root, one of England’s finest cricketers and a veteran of over 100 Test matches. He said: “I think Queen’s Park is a great place for cricket. I’ve plenty of good memories playing for Yorkshire. It’s got a great history of staging county cricket and it’s such a good place for youngsters to watch the game. It’s also great for us at Yorkshire because Chesterfield’s close proximity to South Yorkshire means we always get really good support.”

Friends of Queen’s Park Cricket is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation whose aims are to be a Voice for Cricket in Queen’s Park, promote participation in cricket at all levels and to promote the history and legacy of cricket in Queen’s Park. Author, David Griffin saw his first Derbyshire game at his home town ground, Ilkeston in August 1974, and has been a member of the club ever since. A former soldier, and retired police officer, he served on the Derbyshire County Cricket Club committee and board between 1999 and 2014 and has been the club’s official photographer for almost 20 years. You can order a copy of the book for £19.99 (plus £5 p&p)by contacting Friends of Queen’ Park Cricket by email as below.

Father's Day!

Sunday 16 June

Fancy saying a little thanks to dad, father, daddy, papa, sir or whatever you call him?

I've taken a browse through this edition looking for gifts that he might like. I've surprised myself and picked out 14 local businesses where you can buy a gift and there is no need to worry if the courier will get it to you on time, you can go and pick it up yourself!

Pick out something he'll like, go fetch it and enjoy the warm glow on Sunday 16 you'll get knowing that Father is happy, and that you've done a great job in supporting a local business.

Enjoy your time with Father... many of these suggestions will need you to accompany him, so you'll get to enjoy the treat as well!

Brampton Brewery - a choice of a trip to the pub; The Rose & Crown, The Tramway, The Glass House or The Bierhaus plus off sales at the Beer Cellar in Chatsworth Business Park. Brill Burger - just brilliant burgers over at the Batch House, be sure to use the S40 Local discount (see their advert). Brampton Laundry Services - 'What?' I hear you cry, you could book a service wash for all his work shirts perhaps! Autoselect Cars - OK so one for the more wealthy S40 Local reader but perhaps there's the ideal car in stock over on Pottery Lane for him? You could just take him down to browse. Or if his present pride and joy is in need of some dents removing, book in at Chips Away; and not forgetting iTrack - get his car protected with a tracking device.

Tickled Trout - book a table and treat him to a fab meal with a local beer; Street Spirit on Steeplegate - over a thousand bottles including a huge range of whisky, rum, gin, beer and so much more; Highfield House Farm - an ideal breakfast location on the day, I'll say no more! Then we have a few events you could attend with him, the Brampton Mile Pub Crawl, Eckington Classic Car Show or the Queen's Park Cricket Festival plus a whole list of events in our What's On pages.

Last up, a selection of local books featured in this edition, the history of the Aquarius nightclub, a History of Cricket at Queen's Park and not forgetting Michael South's 'The National League Years Book' looking at Chesterfield FC's years from 2018 to 2024.

All these business, events and books feature in this month's edition so please check them out, and if you need a card, pop into Libby's and perhaps a coffee whilst you're there?

Happy Father's Day everyone.
