Intro I

t’s been at least six weeks since the last S40 Local dropped through letter boxes and it’s been a busy time.

Firstly, I have to mention the Olympics, 29 gold Team GB medals, 65 medals in total and third in the medal table, and in the Paralympics 34 golds, 120 total and again third in the medal table - fantastic... and Royal Mail now short of gold paint! The support shown for our athletes and sportsmen and women has been outstanding. For me it’s a shame I can’t make it out to watch the Tour Of Britain cycle race as it passes through the Peak District tomorrow (Monday 10th), it would be great to see how many people are lining the roads inspired by the performances. The weather will only get a quick mention this month. The cover picture sent in by Graham Morton shows their scarecrow on Holymoor Road as part of the Holymoorside Scarecrow Festival. It’s a diver, resplendent in union jack shorts and Barbie water wings. Following the downpour on Saturday 25 August, the brook behind Graham’s house broke it’s banks creating a muddy pool for the diver! The Chatsworth Road Festival runs from 6 October through to 14 October and the local businesses, clubs and societies have been great - setting up events, offers, demos etc. We’ve included the complete list of events in this edition so please take a look and if you can, get along to some of the events.

The Festival Group wish to express thanks to Councillor Keith Morgan for donating £500 from the Derbyshire County Council Leadership fund and to the Walton and West borough Councillors at the Community Forum, again donating £500. The money has been used to print standalone Festival Guides and help promote the festival to a wider audience. You might want to try the quiz we’ve put together on page 26 for your chance of winning the £600 prize pot - kindly donated by local businesses. Lastly apologies to Mrs Haslam of St Thomas’ Preschool who asked us to include her thank you last month.

A final farewell and thank you. The lovely ladies from St Thomas’ have asked us to extend their sincere thanks for all the cards, gifts and good wishes that flooded in to mark the closing of St Thomas’ Nursery in July. The final concert, performed by the children who were leaving, was held in the church on the 18 July. Jane Haslam said “We couldn’t have wished for a more special finale to our 29 years, it was lovely that Paula Kingdon came down from Westfield school and so many families and extended families came along to help us say farewell, a big thank you to everyone for all your good wishes and support”. Enjoy the Festival. Paul.

Chatsworth Road Festival 2012 By Matt Kane Italian-themed street theatre, a French comedic soiree, Danish chic cycling and a good old-fashioned English walk in the park are just some of the activities featured as part of this year’s internationally-flavoured Chatsworth Road Festival.


ver 70 events are lined up during the eight day event, which runs from Saturday 6th to Sunday 14th October, under the theme ‘The World on Our Doorstep’.

It starts and ends at St Thomas’ with Brampton Food Market celebrating their first anniversary at the Centre on the Saturday morning. Eight days later the curtain comes down with a thanksgiving service in the Church. In between there’ll be an eclectic mix of special offers and activities, details of which can be found over the next 25 pages. We also profile some of the more unusual sights and sounds that may greet visitors during the Festival.

Cycling fanatics, ‘Wheely Fun Wheels’ will be searching for style over speed when they embark on their Cycle in Style bike ride on the opening morning of the Festival. Sharp dress and vintage cycles are the order of the day as the cyclists leave Nonnas at 11.30am, following a complimentary coffee, and travel parallel to Chatsworth Road along minor roads before landing at the Brampton Food Fair. Influenced by London’s Tweed Run and the Copenhagen Cycle Chic movement, Wheely Fun Wheels’ Alastair Meikle is keen to introduce the UK to a new kind of cycling that need not involve fast-peddling and bright yellow lycra. “What we are trying to promote is the kind of culture in Amsterdam and Copenhagen where people choose a bicycle for local transport and just get on and ride in their normal clothes. “This is the first event of this sort that we’ve done. Anybody is welcome to come along but what we’re asking people to do, if they can, is use a more classically styled bike to have a short social ride.” In addition to his business, which provides cycle training in schools, Alastair is also Secretary of Chesterfield Cycle Campaign which campaigns locally for improved cycle facilities. You can register for the Cycle in Style event by phoning Alastair on 01246 520820.

Manor Fields Association is an example of what communities can achieve when they come together. Back in the late 1990s Manor Fields playing fields seemed destined for housing development after the old school closed. But, thanks to a successful local fight, the fields have finally been secured for community use. At 7.30pm on the opening night of the Festival, the Association will be welcoming Brampton Community Band and Brampton Brewery to the Loundsley Green Community Centre for a celebratory barn dance. Chair of the Association, Angela Fookes, is organising the event. “Manor Fields is a great community resource and are used by around 30-50 people a day. Our aims are to promote wildlife on the fields, create a pleasant amenity for the community to enjoy and promote junior sport to reflect the fields’ past history. “The event is for anyone between five and 95 years old! Brampton Brewery is providing the bar and there will be a light buffet, including celebration cake, in the interval. Tickets are limited, so hurry to join in the fun.” Tickets are available from Created Gallery or Angela Fookes on 01246 208379. As well as supporting the Association, Brampton Community Band are holding a ceilidh and workshops at St Thomas’ Centre on Saturday 13th October.

Chesterfield Ferret Club is on a mission to prove that ferrets are far from smelly, vicious creatures that crawl up your trouser leg. In fact, they make rather good pets... And, as part of their crusade, the Club is giving people the opportunity to find out more about ferrets and have any questions answered on Saturday 6th October at Pooky, 286 Chatsworth Road. The Club, which was established in April 2010, usually meets on the last Monday of the month at the New Inn at Winsick but the members are now keen to introduce their furry friends to a new audience. Bruce Booth is the man behind the Club whose main aim is to promote and educate the public about ferrets including husbandry, welfare and promotion of the mammal as an ideal pet. “We’re going to be out with the stall, having fun with the public and telling them what we do and how we look after ferrets. We’re also going to do a bit of racing as well. “People can be quite frightened of ferrets, partly because of what happened with Richard Whitely when the ferret had hold of him on TV. We want to persuade people that ferrets are alright, the reason it bit him was because he was hurting it.” You can find out more about ferrets and the Ferret Club from Bruce on 01246 551910.

Events Childhood dreams and aspirations are the main themes behind Doris Worthington’s light but poignant 30-minute drama Me Mam Said, Me Dad Said which is showing at The Peacock Inn on Wednesday 10th October at 6.30pm. Based on a conversation in a back alley between children in postwar Clay Cross, the play recently won an award at the Derby Arts Festival. Chris Ashmore, who is organising the play and helps to run a local drama club with Doris, explained: “The children in the story are very naïve and a lot of their opinions are based on what they have overheard their parents saying. It is about their aspirations and what they believe is achievable for them. “It’s quite funny in the way that it shines a light on the way in which children thought about life in that era, very different from the way that a 10 or 11-year-old would think about things today.” Further details can be obtained from Chris on 01246 202458.

Shifting Sands is a street-theatre company who combines clowning with improvised tomfoolery to create memorable characters that engage with their audience. Described as ‘Buster Keaton meets William Shakespeare with Laurel and Hardy directing’, the Tansley based company will be bringing their special brand of comedy to Lambrelli’s restaurant on Saturday 13th October from 10am. Expect plenty of audience participation. The art of clowning is then explored in more detail at a children’s workshop from 11am to 12 noon, while adults can learn more about the basis of Shifting Sands’ work by attending an afternoon session on commedia dell’arte (3-4pm) which, according to Shifting Sands’ Gerry Flanagan, is the inspiration behind a lot of modern comedy. “Most of what you know about comedy is based on commedia which comes from 16th century Italy. You have stock characters that are instantly recognisable and it’s all based very much on status and the master-servant relationship. So, to give an obvious example, Fawlty Towers is a classic Commedia dell’Arte show. “All of our work is based on play and clowning. Often when you mention clowning people think of someone in make-up and the circus. When we talk about clowning, think more about Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy or Father Ted. “We’re very playful, what we do is not a show, we’re moving around and interacting with people who are passing by.” Catch them at Lambarelli’s In Piazza at 7 Chatsworth Road, see guide for more detail. To book for any of the events, contact Gerry on 07751 996 864 or email: and you can check out their web site at

Join local Chesterfield Borough Councillor Shirley Niblock as she and her husband Paul lead a four mile circular walk around some of the area’s open spaces on Saturday 13th October.

“It has health benefits and promotes the local area and the Festival. It’ll be the first time it’s been done but we’re hoping to produce a leaflet so people can try it out themselves in their own time. “It’s a fairly flat walk and I think there’s only one small stile so it’s quite

accessible. My husband has been trying it out and he can do it at a steady pace in about an hour-and-a-half.” The walk is free but limited to 30 people. Booking is advisable. For more details contact Shirley on 01246 207080.

The walk begins at 2pm on the corner of Heaton Street and Chatsworth Road, taking in the Inkerman, Manor Fields, Somersall Park and Walton Dam via Old Road, Ashgate Avenue, Vincent Crescent, Westbrook Close and Somersall Farm. “The concept came about after the green spaces were the focus of a community magazine and I thought, ‘wouldn’t it be nice to have a walk that links them all’. My husband Paul loves walking so I gave him the task of mapping out the walk that would link the four green spaces,” said Shirley.

Coffee lounge Mes Amis will be looking to provide a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ when they host an exclusive ‘Allo ‘Allo Soirée from 7.30pm on Saturday 13th October. For £30, including wine on arrival, customers can sample the delights of classic French cuisine and get involved in some laughout-loud comedy sketches acted out in between courses. Mes Amis’ Claire Redhead has been involved in putting together the evening. “The customers are encouraged to come dressed in the ‘Allo ‘Allo theme to help them get into the spirit of the evening and we’ll be looking to provide some classic French food to make the whole evening a real French experience. “The idea is that all the customers are visitors to Ren é’s cafe and we set the scene by recreating the look-and-feel of the set from the TV programme. We’ll be providing the food and the actors will provide the entertainment between courses. “We’ve done it before and last time we had René, Edith, Yvette and Officer Crabtree and the feedback was great. They acted out a storyline brilliantly and there was plenty of audience participation.” You can book your place by contacting Mes Amis on 01246 557394. Page 18 •

This opens up this fantastic nursery to a much wider audience. The bus is staffed by a driver plus one carer and means you don’t have to travel to the nursery to drop off your child, whilst also reducing the number of journeys across town. All staff are qualified to Level 3 and above, Natalie has Early Years Professional Status and the nursery’s OFSTED reports have areas that are outstanding. Hopefully we’ll be bringing you more next month but for now The Jungle Day Nursery do have spaces available so if you are looking for nursery places Natalie can be contacted on 01246 261642.

Excellence In Childcare • OFSTED areas of Outstanding • Friendly, caring & fully qualified staff • Free 15 hours for 2-5 year olds. • Open 07:30am to 6:30pm Monday to Friday • Holiday Clubs available • Excellently equipped purpose built day nursery. • Large, secure & fun outdoor play area. • Collection & drop off from school, home or even your place of work with our new minibus service.

An iDeal Birthday

iDeal Carpets celebrate their first full year trading If you’ve not had a new carpet this year, you won’t have visited Kevin Howarth at iDeal carpets, he’s the one on the right of the photo in the black.


e’s been a regular advertiser over the last year and I’ve got to know him pretty well mainly because he’s always thinking about innovative ways to promote iDeal carpets and getting in touch to suggest ways that S40 Local can help.

advertise I saw a good stream of work through quality local publications, like S40 Local for instance, and the word of mouth continues to spread. 50% of business is by recommendation or repeat” says Kevin, “I’m keen to make sure my pricing is competitive and aim to beat the national companies on price. My products are all top quality, I want every customer to be happy with the level of service at iDeal Carpets.”

Kevin has a true set of Chesterfield credentials: he started his working life for Robinsons and spent 17 years with Carpet Right in Chesterfield before setting up on his own last year. He’s lived in Chesterfield all his life, now in Walton and his children attend local schools.

“I’ve also expanded my supplier and product range over the past year. Today I can offer flooring of all types from quality carpets, laminates, real and engineered woods, vinyls, luxury vinyl tiles and safety flooring, through to commercial solutions. This includes household names like Westex, Telenzo, Hugh Mackay, Mowhawk, Flotex, Kingsmead, Balta, Regency, Associated Weavers, Polyfloor, IVC, V4, Quick Step Laminate” says Kevin.

His time at Carpet Right stood Kevin in good stead, developing business skills and an understanding of how the carpet and flooring industry works.

The commercial side is also proving successful, with recent contracts to supply local landlords for their rental properties and quality flooring solutions for a number of small businesses.

“I’m keen to make sure my pricing is competitive and aim to beat the national companies on price. My products are all top quality, I want every customer to be happy with the level of service at iDeal Carpets.” Last year he opened iDeal carpets, a family run business at 131 Chatsworth Road, above Nonnas and has now completed his first full year - and it’s been a busy one. “Business has grown steadily - I started out supplying family and friends and getting work through recommendation. Once I started to

But it’s not all work, Kevin’s also busy in the community. In April this year iDeal Carpets sponsored a roulette table at a Help for Heroes event at Casa Hotel. Kevin has since enjoyed a stay at Bolton Abbey and a day in an Audi R8 which he won during a charity auction at the event. Also new for the 2012 season, Kevin is sponsoring the Chesterfield Arms Football team who will be playing in the Chesterfield Sunday League in division 5, look out for updates on progress and the iDeal Carpets name on the strip. So if you have a floor that needs covering maybe you should call into iDeal Carpets, mention S40 Local and sample Kevin’s approach to customer service first hand. To make visiting iDeal carpets even more convenient, Kevin will be open seven days a week in the run up to Christmas from 9:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Saturday and Sunday 10:30am to 3pm.

New Gear for your Kitchen 1st Class Kitchens

If you’re looking at a new kitchen, Dave and Helen Oxley, the husband and wife team behind 1st Class Kitchens have some exciting new products in their range. Let them help you meet your specific requirements or add an extra special something to your new room. Take a look at these new ranges and products which supplement their existing supply.


ade to Measure Solid Wood Doors - Dave is very excited to have found a top quality supplier who can make doors from any wood, such as painted, stained, European oak, Pippy oak (a more knotty texture), walnut etc and to any style of your choosing, be it traditional or contemporary. This might not sound too exciting to me or you but what it allows is a bespoke solution for any kitchen (or bedroom or office/study) that means no more standard 600mm carcasses for base units. A typical example where this can solve a problem might be a difficult to fit around chimney breast or alcove. Alongside this, the same wood can be used for a table or any item that can be made of wood to coordinate perfectly with your doors. New acid etched glass fronted kitchen doors - A real head turner; the satin finish has a contemporary, quality look and doesn’t show any reflections or fingerprints! End panels in painted solid timber, from Uber, a British company. Luxury vinyl click flooring solution - A new range of flooring is now available (either as part of a complete fitted kitchen project or to purchase direct and fit

yourself) from Eazi-Lay. This luxury solution is a vinyl tile that clicks together in the same way as laminate flooring but without the drawbacks of laminate in damp or wet environments. Having a fibreglass centre and complete with a 15 year guarantee it can be fitted by anyone who can put down a laminate floor so no need for a joiner or tiler, you could even do it yourself to save money. Bosch and Siemens. Alongside the new products 1st Class Kitchens are a Bosch partner so can offer the full range of Bosch products together with the sharp edged Siemens range of appliances. Total Design services for bedrooms, studies and offices. Dave explained “recently we’ve done a number of projects where we’ve removed interior walls to create open living spaces for the whole family, putting the kitchen at the centre of the home. We have the full set of trades available and can project manage from start to completion, we offer a fixed price for these jobs so the price paid is what we quote, there will be no hidden charges.” In addition to kitchens, Dave and Helen supply fitted bedrooms, studies and offices and have a new range of door fronts that includes a wooden insert in a range of colours and styles. This same manufacturer can produce bespoke kitchen solutions in the same style. 1st Class Kitchens is a small family business, living and working in the area and have an impressive book of letters with thanks and recommendations. If you’re in need of their services, you’ll be in safe hands.

Trust Polar to do it again! Storming through this prolonged recession period, the 24 year old company from Hasland has exceeded all targets once again.

T Recommendations Over 80% of Polar Windows’ business comes from referrals or ‘word of mouth’. This is what some customers say: “We are delighted with our new conservatory. Polar Windows is a fantastic company, and we will have no hesitation in recommending them.” Mr and Mrs Uttley

Page 48 •

he best ever sales month achieved by the trusted Polar team has been the culmination of attaining all goals set for 2012, and is evidence of exemplary customer retention, competitive prices and unrivalled service and after-care. Commercial Contracts Polar Windows’ reputation has won the company prestigious commercial contracts nationwide, giving them invaluable opportunities to work on a comprehensive variety of projects from hospitals to coastguard stations. Here is an honest appraisal from the Filey Coastguard: “Due to the coastal location, all hardware, screws etc had to be aystenithic stainless steel to prevent corrosion. We did wind loading calculations due to the size and exposed location. Self-cleaning glass was fitted so that the view was unimpaired during heavy rain - this glass causes water to ‘sheet’ across the whole surface - rather than run

down in droplets - improving visibility.” Which Magazine Local independent double glazing companies, of which Polar Windows is a prime example, are streets ahead of household names according to a Which magazine satisfaction survey carried out this year. The results show that the four brands (Anglian, Everest, Safestyle and Zenith Staybright) scored between 58% and 63%, whilst local firms, like Polar, achieved an amazing 83%. The Trusted Trader Scheme After rigorous checks, Polar Windows is now an established member of the Trusted Trader Scheme. The scheme, which has been managed by Derbyshire County Council since 2007, aims to help combat rogue traders and door step crime, and to promote excellent standards of customer service and fair trading. It does this by supporting and recommending businesses like Polar Windows, which operate legally, fairly and honestly.

Run and Ride @Pelican The latest news from Pelican Cycles. Last month I featured a picture of Bradley Wiggins in front of the Arc De Triumph becoming the first British winner of the Tour de France. This was shortly before we were treated to fantastic performances by Team GB, winning seven of the ten available golds in the velodrome.


ell Neil Armitage has already seen the effect of this with an increase in demand at Pelican Cycles. “I’ve had a number of customers in for bikes as a direct result of the Olympics, three of these were mountain bikers looking to purchase road bikes, so the Olympics definitely inspired some of our generation to get out there and exercise” says Neil. And Pelican has no intention of standing still, with the recent launch of Pelican Run, aimed at supporting runners and triathletes. The new offering provides specialist running shoes and clothing by Asics, Mizuno and Scott for Autumn training. With the winter approaching Pelican have the new season Cyclo-Cross bikes, for winter racing, now in store by Ridley, Scott & Forme. Ridley are the worlds no.1 Cyclo-Cross brand, having won

Page 50 •

multiple world titles over the last 10 years. If your winter training involves some training indoors, Pelican have TACX turbo trainers and rollers. And new in store for the Autumn/Winter outdoor riders you’ll find a great range of lights by Leading bike lights specialist Cateye. The 2013 range of mountain and road bikes are also arriving in store by Scott, Ridley, De Rosa, Eddy Merckx. Neil is proud to add Forme bikes to his range of quality bike brands. If you need a financial incentive to get into the saddle and cycle to work, Pelican offers various cycle to work schemes including Cyclescheme, Halfords Cycle to Work and Bikes for NHS. There’s lots going on, some great new kit arriving in store, including a great range of ladies specific clothing and a bike fit service to ensure you’re positioned correctly... so no excuses not to be perfectly equipped for the road or trail. During the Chatsworth Road Festival week Pelican will be offering promotions with two late nights on Tuesday 9 and Thursday 11 October until 7.30pm, please come along to browse our new bikes and stock whilst enjoying drinks and nibbles. All welcome.

Nonsolovino brings the world to our doorstep.




With the Chatsworth Road Festival celebrating ‘the world on our doorstep’ during October, we wanted to remind you about Nonsolovino, offering Michelin listed Italian fine dining, all on our very own Chatsworth Road.


e recently visited Nonsolovino for the first time. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted to choose somewhere special. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, Peter Gately (owner and business partner together with Andrea Sgaravatto) was there to greet us on arrival and we were shown upstairs to a comfortable bar area to peruse the menu and for a drink before our meal. The menu offered a good selection to suit all tastes from strong flavours to more traditional dishes for the less adventurous. Between the courses we were served with delightful additional courses of canapés and aperitifs. It struck me how fortunate we are to have a Michelin recognised restaurant on Chatsworth Road, and how we should appreciate that Peter and Andrea chose to establish themselves in our area, enjoy the food on offer and celebrate our special occasions there. An evening at Nonsolovino isn’t cheap, but personally, when we make a choice to treat ourselves, I want to be sure it’s money well spent. Nonsolvino is the kind of place you visit a couple of times a year for a special occasion, with the reassurance that it will be an enjoyable experience with excellent food. Peter and Andrea’s customers spread the good news about their business through word of mouth and recommendation, and to keep the restaurant bustling they are keen for even more people to know how good they are. So if you haven’t yet visited this cosmopolitan corner of Chesterfield and it’s time for a treat I recommend that you give Nonsolovino a try.

JOAN EARDLEY Oozing great oily globules, thinned with turpentine dripping and dribbling down a canvas or in thick rich swathes of luscious colour – there is something seductive and sensual about using oil paint and then there’s that intoxicating smell… I sometimes wonder whether I should paint with it or bathe in it!


t’s incredible versatility has made oil paint probably the most used of artists’ materials for centuries, and its popularity continues even now. There is simply, nothing else quite like it. However these properties of oil paint make it difficult to master, and to be able to fully exploit them often takes years. Compare the later works of well known artists to their earlier ones – how they progress from tight controlled use of paint to a wonderful looseness and freedom – expressing themselves without undue concern for their materials. Over the past four or five weeks the screen saver on my PC has contained images of the paintings of Joan Eardley. Perhaps because of her death in 1963 aged just 42, Joan Eardley is not as widely known as she deserves to be, although she was recognised as a major artist by the art world of that time. She remains influential to those who know of her work today, especially in Scotland where she spent most of her working life. Her time in Scotland was divided between her studio in Glasgow during the 1950s and early 60s and her cottage studio in Catterline on the North East coast just below Aberdeen. In the paintings of Glasgow street scenes and children, and the landscapes and seascapes of Catterline, it is her accomplished and expressive use of paint, which

ART Page 52 •

convey a deep feeling and understanding of her subject and clearly set her apart. But maybe it is her intense desire to express that deep feeling and understanding in paint, which also made her so accomplished. She employs every conceivable technique of oil painting to achieve that feeling – scumbles – glazes – dry brush impasto – collage – all are utilised – although never in an overly selfindulgent way, but to express what she saw and witnessed before her - the impoverished ragged children living out their lives in the graffitied and run down streets of post-war Glasgow or the tumultuous waves of the North Sea crashing onto the rocky shoreline at Catterline and the summer meadows around her cottage with the actual grasses and wild flowers pasted onto the paintings. She has left us, in her paintings, not only an historic image of what those places looked like, but also how it must have felt to be there – she knew the street children of Glasgow and their families personally, she lived and worked there and she also knew well the seas and land around Catterline. Painting outdoors and preferring to be outside experiencing the drama of stormy days standing before raging seas, or knee deep in summer meadows, she felt an intense need to immerse herself in her surroundings and a strong desire to pass that onto us through her paintings. She reminds me that we don’t just look at art, we immerse ourselves in it. An indication of an artist’s importance to me, is the length of time images of their work remain as my screen saver! I think that Joan Eardley’s will be there for a very long time, reminding me as an artist that developing a deep feeling and love for my subject will determine how best to use the gloriously sumptuous substance that is oil paint.

Business News Brampton Brewery A Cracking Bit of Kit & News

both the Rose & Crown and Tramway Tavern.

The Brewery has taken delivery of a brand new Malt Milling Machine shown on the picture... Very Wallace and Gromit’s ‘The Wrong Trousers’! I’m sure it will get christened as such, but it is a cracking bit of kit (Gromit) and has greatly enhanced the malt milling process.

Looking ahead - there will be another Beer2Net Festival on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 October, tickets are now on sale and can be purchased from POOKY Piggy Bank

Palace Roofline New Products

New at POOKY, Victoria has launched the POOKY PIGGY BANK service. Great for birthdays and also for Christmas (yes it will soon be upon us !). It was suggested by regular customers and offers two savings scheme options:

If you’re in the market for dry verge systems, Shane at Palace Roofline has a new range. He’s been doing a number of installations recently so has plenty of reference sites in the area if you want to check them out.

Option 1 – Pay any amount into the PIGGY BANK and when you see something you want to buy, and have saved enough funds, you can purchase from POOKY. Option 2 - (their most popular choice) choose the Toys or Gifts you want to purchase either in the shop or from one of our many catalogues, leave a small deposit and then call in and pay the amount off in instalments, when all has been paid you can either have them delivered (free of charge locally) or collect. This means you to stick to a budget, you get exactly what you want and it’s completely stress free. “We do suggest you send in any lists as early as possible to have a better chance of getting everything you want and we are very competitive on prices” says Victoria. Call in or phone POOKY on 01246 220345 for more details. Pooky now open 6 days a week Mon- Sat giving you even more opportunities to pop and purchase perfect children’s toys. Page 56 •

Also they are now offering cantilevered Carports that are fixed to the side of the house requiring no posts. These installations are competitively priced, typically more than £1000 less than some of the national suppliers. Call Shane (01246 272068) for details. The Ironing Lady New to Chatsworth Road Rebecca Salt and Helen Briggs, otherwise known as the Ironing Lady have opened up new premises at 131 Chatsworth Road, next to iDeal Carpets. Formerly at Hasland, Rebecca has been running a professional ironing service for almost 20 years, so knows a thing or two about creases. As well as ironing they will be offering a laundry service, with collection and pick up, open from 8:30am to 6pm (later by appointment) so you can call in on your way to or from work. They’re launching with an introductory offer of £12 per hour to new and old customers alike, and aim to achieve a 48 hour turnaround. Give them a call on 01246 297757 to start using their services.

Bower Finances Simon Chalk, award-winning Equity Release specialist has become one of the first advisers in the UK to be granted membership of the Equity Release Council. A video interview with Simon can be viewed on Created Gallery Laying Aside Scheme In recent months we have introduced artists’ works that are beautiful and desirable but more expensive. To help out customers who have fallen in love with an artist’s work, we are launching a ‘laying aside’ scheme. We will remove the piece from sale for a deposit of 30% and the customer has 3 months to pay the balance. To find out more, drop in to Created Gallery. Serenity Body & Soul An update from Darlene “Following a fall almost 6 weeks ago, the last plaster has gone and I was hoping to return work. Unfortunately the x-rays showed that although my broken leg bone is healing well, damage from dislocated and broken ankle bones are more severe than first thought. This means another 6 weeks non-weight bearing, then another operation and more physiotherapy and recovery. It may be November before I’m able to return to work. Missing you all and apologies for any inconvenience caused!” Updates will be posted on

Bakes Ace Bakes cakes for every occasion, although VickeyAnne Diouf’s first cake memory was of her father’s Christmas cakes “In our family my father iced the family Christmas cake, one year I had a go and from then I was hooked and did it every year.

When I was quite young I joined an evening course on gateaux and Christmas cake making, and found I enjoyed tweaking and changing the recipes, much to the annoyance of the teacher, but the others encouraged me. I love to experiment with new flavours and methods and love making cakes - but every baker knows there’s a real downside - the side effects of eating all the cakes - so I decided to start making them for others” “I started out with Christmas cakes, an obvious progression for me. The first year I had about a dozen orders which I started preparing in September, then iced and completed for Christmas. It gave me a real buzz to see people’s faces as they first saw them. For me this is a passion, but if you neither have time nor don’t enjoy baking it’s a lot of work to get a Christmas cake ready - so if you want something handmade rather than shop-bought I can help you out “. I’ve been making cakes on request for a while but only recently developed it into a business” says Vickey-Anne. “I teach one day a week and now fill my spare days baking. I work from home, I’ve had the kitchen improved to

create a suitable workspace, taken my hygiene course and was recently inspected, so I can work comfortably and professionally.” “When I started out I purchased hand-baked cakes from wherever I could - I’d taste them and figure out what made each one good or bad - I combined all the good bits to make the perfect cake”, says Vickey-Anne. When I met Vickey-Anne, she’s been baking, her cakes are more like delightful puddings in a bun - there’s tiramisu and lemon meringue buns for a grown up occasion or afternoon tea party and pop cakes on a stick for kids - all delicious. Talking to Vickey-Anne got me wondering why we celebrate special occasions with cakes. It appears birthday cakes were originally connected with the seasonal cycle and celebrated gods. The ancient Greeks made round or moon-shaped honey cakes and took them to the temple of Artemis, the moon goddess. During the Middle Ages, Germans used sweetened dough and shaped the cake like baby Jesus swaddled in cloth to commemorate his birth. Over time, the tradition transitioned into commemorating the birth of young children called Kinderfest. But it’s not just

Westerners who celebrate with a cake, the Chinese made cakes to honour the seasonal cycle of the moon and their lunar goddess Heng O, whilst the Russians celebrated the sun by paying their respects to the deity Maslentias by making thin pancakes called sun cakes. (Thanks eHow). Vickey-Anne explained “I can make cakes for dairy intolerance, gluten free, traditional, cup-cakes, Simnel cakes (a light fruit cake with two layers of almond paste or marzipan, one in the middle and one on top, toasted, and eaten at Easter) in fact anything requested, I enjoy the challenge of it.” Vickey-Anne has a full range of cakes, large, small, iced, cup cakes and the kids cake pop great for kids’ party bags. If you would like something special for dessert on Boxing Day why not try her chestnut, chocolate and rum cheesecake? Decorated baked cakes are typically £35, £1.50 for cup cakes but Vickey-Anne can tailor make cakes to suit any budget. Contact Vickey-Anne on 0781 267 9490 or see her business card at the back of this edition.

The Chesterfield Art Club is holding the last of their 2012 Exhibitions at St Thomas’ Community Centre, Brampton, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October, from 10am to 5pm on both days. Admission is free and there is ample free parking available. The Art Club has already held several successful exhibitions this year and this latest one should be amongst its best, with approximately 150 pictures by over 40 artists on display. The subject matter of the work ranges from traditional landscapes, seascapes, portraits, floral and wildlife studies, to fantasy and abstract designs. Pictures are in a variety of different styles and media, including watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastel, and batik.

After a terrific summer of sport, September sees the start of the Chesterfield and District Sunday League. Brampton Brewery FC have made a few additions to their squad and are looking forward to the new season.

Most of the work exhibited will be for sale and there will also be a range of prints and cards available for purchase. This is an excellent opportunity for people to acquire beautiful original works of art at very reasonable prices. Chesterfield Art Club is a well established, popular, local art club with a full and interesting annual programme of activities, demonstrations, and events. We usually meet on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at Whitecotes School, Chesterfield, S40 3HJ - between 7.30 and 9.30 pm and have room for a limited number of new members.

They’ve trained hard and played half a dozen pre-season friendlies, the highlight of which was winning the True Blue Cup 3-2. The Cup is played each year against Brimington United of Division 5 Cup. BBFC will continue to play their home games at Oaks Farm Lane, Calow, the venue for their 1st league game, a win against Clay Cross Miners and Diners. Luke Cocking, making his BBFC debut, received the Man Of The Match award, a bottle of ‘1302’ ale donated by Brampton Brewery. The team finished 4th in Division 8 last season and aim to finish in the top three this season and gain promotion. We’ll keep you posted throughout this new season. Good luck lads.

Why Not Join a Choir? Holymoorside Choral Society The recent television success of Gareth Malone and the Military Wives choirs has meant people all over the country are discovering the benefits of singing together. There is a direct correlation between singing and happiness, it comes from the support system of being part of a choir and the friends made within it. And choirs usually have other social events arranged other than singing, even if it’s just meeting in the pub after practices. Holymoorside Choral Society is such a group, formed in 1941 to help people through the Second World War it’s been uplifting choir members and audiences alike ever since. They are currently learning seasonal songs and carols so why not join them for their Christmas preparations? Don’t worry if you think you can’t read music – some existing members can’t either and help is always at hand. They meet on Thursday evenings 7:30–9:30pm in the United Reformed Church meeting room, Holymoorside. Have a look at their website, email info@holymoorsidechoral. or phone Angela on 01246 206485 and start improving your well-being for the coming winter!

10 things to do in the garden By Colin Harrison of Transition Chesterfield

1. Plant over-wintering onion sets and garlic, and it’s worth continuing to sow winter lettuces (there are several varieties with varying degrees of hardiness: Lamb’s Lettuce, Winter Density, Great Lakes are just a few). 2. If you have rhubarb, now is the time to divide it (also ornamental perennials). 3. Keep on top of tidying jobs, but leave as many seed-heads as possible; they can look good, especially frosted, and some provide food for birds over winter. Attracting these to the garden can also help with pest control, as they will eat the eggs and larvae of bugs. Don’t compost any leafs that look diseased – put them in the black bin. 4. Depending on how warm (or otherwise) it is, lawns will still need occasional mowing; you don’t want to go into winter with it too long. Keep it clear of fallen leaves, and rake out worm-casts; now is the time to repair wornout patches with turf. 5. Plant late winter and spring-flowering bulbs, which make everyone happy and provide food for wildlife early in the year. 6. To keep producing edible crops, it’s worth experimenting with baby or micro leaves, plants that are cut very young; look online for suppliers. Grow them indoors – you can recycle the plastic containers fruit is often sold in, as seed trays. Children will love them as they grow quite quickly. 7. If you have any potatoes left in the ground, harvest them; try to remove all the tiny little

ones – they can carry diseases over winter. If every gardener and farmer could remove every one of these, it would eliminate potato blight completely (until it was re-imported). Most other root crops grown for autumn harvesting should also be dug up, except parsnips which improve in flavour if frosted. 8. Plant new fruit trees, and move existing ones (and shrubs) as necessary - but don’t leave it too late, you want to take advantage of the warmth stored in the soil. 9. Dig over heavy soils and leave them exposed for the frost to break down. There’s still time to sow green manures which will over-winter (e.g. field beans, forage pea and rye); these will hold nutrients in the soil and increase fertility when dug in in spring. 10. If you plan to grow runner beans next year, make a bean trench. Dig out a furrow about 30cm X 30cm (1ft X 1ft) and break up the soil at the bottom. Then tip anything you would normally put on the compost heap straight into it (kitchen waste is ideal, as it tends to be in smaller bits which rot more readily). In spring (making sure there’s no frozen bits from frost!) fill it in, allowing time for the soil to settle before the beans go in. If you have an excess of something and no freezer space, Transition Chesterfield is still holding a produce swap for anything you’ve either grown or made yourself (jams, chutneys etc) at their regular Green Drinks. These are always on the first Wednesday of the month, although the location varies; check online at


If you can’t make the produce swaps at the green drinks events above, Transition Chesterfield is holding a daytime Harvest Swap on September 23 at the Hunloke Community Gardens, Church St South (S40 2TF). Bring anything edible you have grown or made (cakes, jam, chutney etc); each participant and their produce is given a number and, at the appointed time, you bargain with others to swap your produce for theirs. The swap itself will happen at about 2:30pm, but from about 12pm onwards we will be pressing apples and distributing free juice tasting samples. If anyone has spare apples they would like to add to the mix, bring them along, and they can have a go on the machines themselves. FESTIVAL QUIZ ANSWERS: 1. The Bottom Pheasant; 2.

Order is finally restored... for now! Is it just me or does there appear to be a buzz in the air? I could be mistaken but I am fairly sure that I keep seeing a mixture of relief and achievement on people’s faces as they go about their daily business. It’s only a recent thing though…


or example, every weekday morning after around 9am, the world seems a more serene place. Decorum appears to have been restored somehow. Admittedly the roads do seem a little busy first thing but the tension has definitely subsided. People are smiling, days seem to be shorter, the prices of holidays have halved and I don’t feel the need to avoid supermarkets (any more than usual)… so why oh why?

Will Jackson’s Blog

It’s the kids… it’s definitely the kids! Hundreds and thousands of the little blighters have gone back to school and each and every parent across the land made it; they survived the 6 week holiday without being handed over to the people in the white coats (as much as that might have appeared to be a tempting prospect at times). No longer are parents throughout the nation waking up in the morning and looking at calendars to remind them of how much longer this will need to go on for; no longer are they at the mercy of overcrowded indoor play areas, weather dependant outdoor activities or merciless attempts to go about daily chores accompanied by bored and uninspired offspring. No longer do they live in fear that today could be their day (or their turn!) to accommodate hoards of angelic little demolition experts into their homes whilst attempting to prevent the spillage of tea, coffee, juice, ice cream, sick (or worse) on sofas and carpets. No longer are they left bewildered as to what dvd to put on next to bide them enough time for a trip to the toilet. The days of foraging through hundreds of boxes of jigsaws in order to locate all of the pieces required for the one needed are over and rain forests sleep easy, safe in the knowledge that acres and acres will be spared as a direct result of thirty minute painting exercises no longer taking place. The day to hand them over to the professionals who are specifically trained to channel such short attention spans and overzealous, unprecedented energy levels into a structured curriculum has

arrived. And my hat goes off to them, it truly does; the teachers, childminders, school crossing patrols, dinner ladies, teaching assistants, bus drivers and any other professionals crazy enough to involve themselves in educating, transporting and feeding the children of this nation; I salute you! In my opinion, these are the people who surely deserve either medals or a visit from those in the white coats who are now a little redundant after the parents have begun to prove sane (or slightly more sane) again. Yet as our little bundles of joy toddle off on their merry little way to learn, play and talk complete gibberish to each other, the parents are left at school gates up and down the country, having no idea what to do with themselves. Meanwhile owners of coffee shops rejoice as their semi-loyal customers begin to return after a 6 week break to drink tea, eat cake and talk about their little bundles of joy whilst supressing their tears of bewilderment. Of course, let us not forget the many grandparents who have also suddenly become redundant; the nation’s free childcare; for these are the people who have never been so busy since retirement. And little did they know back then when they decided to wind down their professional lives in order to enjoy more time in the garden, the supermarkets or driving at excessively low speeds throughout the country’s A-roads, they would in fact become solely responsible for small children again. Oh how we laughed! So let’s hear it for the professionals – Hooray! Let’s hear it for the Grandparents – Hooray! And of course let’s of course hear it for the parents - Hooray! Give yourselves a round of applause! Thank you for reading and enjoy the peace and quiet! If you would like to read any more of my complete and utter nonsense, do check out my online blog: Take care, Will Jackson I would like to dedicate this month’s blog to my friend, the late Stephen Meeney; a true gentleman and an absolute scholar.
