A huge thank you to Andrew Robinson for the cover photo this month, a really interesting perspective and beautiful photo of the ‘Growth’ sculpture on the Horns Bridge Island. He also went to photograph the Queen’s Park development to show what’s happening behind the fence – it supplements the article updating you on the exciting new developments down there. There has been controversy and negativity about the development, but after an interview with Amanda Serjeant I’m pleased to be living in an area that’s investing in our health and wellbeing, providing leisure facilities with access for all.

Wall or nothing: The Men of Brampton Words: Nicola Chapman

It’s 1266, King Henry III is on the throne. The people living in Brampton, England are under the rule of King Henry, he’s an unpopular monarch, his foreign policies are expensive and he levies high taxes. He assumed the throne in 1216, aged 9 during the First Baron’s War and 50 years on we’re in the throes of the Second Baron’s War. With one of the last battles happening right here in Chesterfield, between King Henry III and the Baron, Robert de Ferrers, the 6th Earl of Derby. Described in some texts as a minor skirmish, it occurred after the decisive battle of Evesham where Simon de Montfort was killed, and was perhaps more of a mopping up exercise. We’ve pulled together an account from a variety of sources, but most notably a 1771 account by Mr Pegge to give you a taste of this Chesterfield Battle. Extracts from Pegge’s account: The local dignitaries involved in the battle were Baron Baldwin de Wake, in possession, but not in residence at the great Manor of Chesterfield and Robert Earl Ferrers. Robert was powerful in Derbyshire possessing the castle of Tutbury and Bolsover – he was one of the Barons opposed to the King – but after losing at the great battle of Evesham, Robert submitted to the King’s mercy, paid a large fine and was pardoned. This was granted upon condition that if he should at any time transgress he would be totally disinherited and lose his earldom. Robert de Ferrers wasn’t a man of his word and on receipt of his pardon he resumed his former course, neither paying the fine nor regarding the oath.

Page 4

In the Survey of Domesday, Cestrefeld, as it was known, is described as a hamlet of Newbold, which was ancient land belonging to the crown. Soon after the compilation of that Survey, the manor of Chesterfield was given to William Peverell. King Henry II seized this after William Peverell f led the kingdom, on account of the murder of the Earl of Chester. King John, in 1204, granted the manor of Chesterfeld, with Brimington and Whittington, and the whole wapentake (administrative area) of Scarsdale, to William Briwere. Isabel, one of the co-heiresses of William Briwere, the younger, brought this manor to Baldwin Wake through marriage. The next spring after Earl Robert had given his oath, a large party of his friends and followers convened at Duffield - the assembled were described as ‘people of no great account’ intent on plundering and ravaging the country. However, there were a lot of them and they were soon joined by malcontents of a more respectable character, Baron Baldwin de Wake amongst them. They took post at Chesterfield. The King, although not present, sent his men against them with great strength and surprised the rebels, falling upon them in their quarters and killing many. It is said that upon attack Robert de Ferrers was suffering gout, he hid in the church under sacks of wool and was given away by a treacherous woman and discovered. He was brought as a prisoner in irons to London where he remained in confinement for three years and in the end lost his lands and likewise his earldom.

Article As for Baron Baldwin de Wake, it is thought he missed the battle, away hunting at the time of the attack. Lucky you might assume, but he was forced to flee and joined other troublemakers where his party committed great outrages. He eventually surrendered and submitted to the King’s mercy, obtaining a pardon. Upon defection he lost the manor of Chesterfield and his lands, but upon his submission these lands were restored to him and continued in his family for some time. It is said that it was truly a surprise attack as many of the barons and knights were out hunting and not present during the battle – taking the opportunity to flee, avoiding the skirmish with the royalists. But it is not the royalists and the barons that hold the main interest, there is a substory and this is one of the ordinary folk, the men of Brampton. These parishioners, it is said, built part of the wall in the church of St Mary’s, and during the battle defended the wall, and the wall only, against the attack. It is believed they had no great axe to grind with either side in the battle but the Men of Brampton marched into town with the purpose of defending the walls of the Church. In Medieval times it was common for people from a specific part of town to both maintain a part of the town wall during peace time and be responsible for manning it during any fighting. It is said that the cost of repairing any damage would have fallen to these same men and that they refused to budge from this spot during the battle. Brampton 750 years ago would not be the Brampton we know of today, it would be the village we know as Old Brampton. And the march to town would have been along the route that is now Saltergate - no 10 minute trip in the car, but a march of some distance, through open countryside, tracks and trails. It occurred on 15 May 1266, Whitsun Eve, with the men joining together to protect the wall.

1266 was 6 years before the death of King Henry III, in 1272. He reigned for 56 years, making him the fourth longest reigning monarch in English history.

Page 6

Chesterfield at that time consisted of Newbold, Barlow, Whittington, Tupton, Boythorpe and Eckington. With no Ashgate or New Brampton there’d be little in the way of dwellings on route until they reached Chesterfield town centre, vastly different from the place we today call home. On arriving in town at the market place (Chesterfield having been granted a weekly market by King John, the father of Henry III, just 62 years earlier in 1204), they would continue their march to St Mary’s church (without its crooked spire, which didn’t appear until 1362 (ish)). The King John’s charter, which granted Chesterfield its market, in 1204, also made Chesterfield a free borough, marking its evolution from a village to a town. The group would have consisted of peasants – farmers, farm labourers, maybe a miller from a local mill, cobblers, tanners, tailors etc… and you can only imagine the scene as they reached the town, the noise, crowds, panic, deaths, homes being destroyed in the fighting, waged largely after dark lit only by burning buildings, and the men of Brampton there to defend the walls. Well held, the Men of Brampton.

Commemorative Events

A small group, led by Peter Gray from Brampton, is planning commemorative events to mark the 750th anniversary of the battle of Chesterfield in May 2016. Plans are very sketchy at present but activities in the town centre may include, re-enactments of the events at the church, a hog roast, markets and the group may be calling on the people of all areas, and communities, of Chesterfield to get involved… perhaps a march into town is called for? If you’d like to find out more or you’d like to help plan the events please email info@ And S40 Local will endeavour to keep you posted on their progress.

Reading Allowed. Encouraging and celebrating reading for pleasure. Words: Nicola Chapman “Reading for pleasure is a more important determinant of a child’s future success than their family’s socio economic status” quotes the Department for Education.

And in support of reading, World Book Day on Thursday 5 March will celebrate authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading! Now in its 18th year and marked across the world, children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily.

The project recognises that, to engage children, reading needs to be fun. It embraces the power of reading stories aloud to inspire children to read for themselves. The Headteacher at St John Fisher Primary, Sheffield was clearly impressed “It was a breakthrough. Without exception the children enjoyed the initiative and felt that they had developed greater confidence and a more positive attitude towards reading.” At the sessions Cid and Mo entertain the children with a story especially written for the occasion - The Janksters and the Creator of Magic! Lots of dressing up, superheros and dancing penguins!!

Reading stories to children is the ADVERT for reading. Books are intended to be FUN! If we read aloud, children will enjoy the experience and recognise this. Then, hopefully, they will read for pleasure themselves! By investing time in reading to children you invest in their future and

Local schools are getting involved and holding their own book celebrations and two inspirational local authors Cid and Mo, are holding their Reading Allowed workshops during the week.

We introduced you to Cid and Mo in the Winter 2014 edition of S40 Local. They are local authors and book champions whose quest is to capture the interest of young readers, particularly boys through their workshops for schools, clubs and societies and their Janksters books, which bridge the reading gap for six to ten year old boys. They will deliver their reading for pleasure project, Reading Allowed, to the children of Spire Juniors, Whitecotes Primary and William Rhodes Primary schools during World Book Week, on Monday 2 March.

Reading Allowed is a project set up to promote reading for pleasure and help address the problems of poor literacy skills. 15% of the working age population in England are at or below the level of literacy expected of an 11 year old. This means that 5.1 million people in the UK are unable to read a document such as a child’s school report. Page 20

• Role model reading as a fun activity • Improve their vocabulary • Help with their writing – sentence structure, grammar etc • Transport them to new places • Develop empathy • Encourage understanding of different cultures • Help to develop relationships and bonds with the reader • Promote reading for pleasure

So grab a book today and start reading aloud. Cid and Mo release their new book on 1 March - The Janksters and the Pesky Parrot! available on Amazon.

The pair are keen to support local schools, and if you’re interested they are offering a cost reduction to Derbyshire Primaries who book Reading Allowed for the next academic year.

To find out more please contact them on 07791 511740 or email: cidandmo@hotmail.

Holymoorside Film Words Paul Chapman Pictures Holymoorside Film


ith sophisticated home entertainment systems becoming more affordable and vast banks of films available for people to download or stream, you don’t have to leave your front room to watch a movie. However the members of Holymoorside Film will tell you that a cinema experience is more than just about the film. I talked recently to Ann Grinbergs, chair of Holymoorside and Walton Arts Festival Society - the film group is organised under the society’s umbrella. She told me “We enjoy sharing the performance together – there’s a real sense of friendship and community”. With around 70 members Holymoorside Film is in its 10th year and thriving. On the second Tuesday and 4th Friday of each month, Holymoorside Village Hall is transformed into a community cinema. Ann explained “the 4th Friday films are lighthearted and feel-good, starting at 7.30pm and followed by tea or coffee and biscuits. Midweek Movies, on Tuesdays, start a little later at 8.00pm and are slightly more challenging – including historical or real life dramas and occasional foreign language movies. We provide a glass of wine and nibbles before the film and people arrive early for a chat with friends.

Page 24

“Before each film we give a short presentation to give some background. People are interested to know about the actors, filming locations and snippets of film trivia.”

“To give you a feel for the types of films we screen, on a Tuesday recently we showed ‘Shadowlands’ our homage to director Richard Attenborough, while our 4th Friday Film was ‘Frozen’ and despite the weather over 30 people turned up, including two little girls dressed as Princess Anna. Our largest turnout was for ‘My Week with Marilyn’ when we had 73 in the audience. Other favourites have been ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’, ‘Made in Dagenham’ and ‘Les Choristes’ – a delightful subtitled French language film about a boys’ school choir. We’ve worked out that our average attendance is 36.” “Most members live in Holymoorside or Walton, but some are from further afield, including Wingerworth, Newbold and Ashover. People like that we are on the doorstep, and most are happier in the cosy environment of the village hall, preferring it to the hustle and bustle of large cinema chains.”

I was curious about how the licensing works, as the DVD’s I watch at home say I can’t show them publicly. “This is why we must operate with a membership. Although occasional

visitors are welcome we encourage people to join. Without membership we simply couldn’t exist. This is not about our costs – we are run by volunteers and are non-profit-making – but about the obligations of our screening licences.”

with friends and perhaps seeing a film on a large screen for the first time. The team of volunteers makes everyone feel welcome. They do a great job.”

Holymoorside Film began in 2006, when the Arts Festival Society was invited to be part of a Derbyshire County Council Arts subsidised initiative to establish cinema in rural locations, using hired equipment. Ann explained “as the project was so popular, when the trial ended, we decided to apply for arts grant funding for the purchase of our own projector and 3 metre screen, which were installed in the village hall by kind permission of Holymoorside and Walton Parish Council.”

What’s Ann’s favourite film and why? “I’ve just been to the cinema to see ‘The Theory of Everything’, the story of Stephen Hawkins, which was incredible. I know there has been a lot in the press recently but it really is that good. I completely forgot I was watching actors. Human interest films are my favourites. Wellmade British films can’t be bettered, we have a world class acting community - Maggie Smith in ‘The Pride of Miss Jean Brodie’ – we showed that recently - wonderful.”

To comply, there is a membership scheme with annual subscriptions usually payable in March for the new programme starting in September. There are two programmes – with a choice of midweek or 4th Friday membership – though many members join both. Single programme members can see 7 films for £20 or joining both will offer 13 films for £35.

How do you choose the films? “We consult members and suggest titles. We spend a lot of time researching on the International Movie Database. The IMDb is the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content” explains Ann. “I’m proud to say that in the ten years, we’ve screened 110 films and the carefully selected titles mean we’ve never had to cancel a screening due to poor turnout”.

A loyal group of volunteers support with setting up the equipment, projection duties, film selection, front of house, membership administration and publicity and, very importantly, serving our complimentary refreshments on film nights!

Ann was keen to point out that Holymoorside Film is inclusive and friendly, it is open to all and there’s room for new members and for helpers. Members also enjoy discounts on local arts festival events which can be seen at

“The evenings are about more than just the film” says Ann, “people also enjoy the opportunity to meet neighbours, friends and new people. Often some have seen the film before, but it’s a different experience watching


Fri 27 February: ‘Belle’ the true story of the mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, raised by her aristocratic great-uncle, the 1st Early of Mansfield, in 18th century England.

If the idea of a glass of wine and a movie on a Tuesday or a Friday night film with tea and chat appeals to you, give Ann and the film team a call on 01246 567118 / 861997.

Tue 19 March: ‘The Book Thief’ in World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.

Article Advertorial

Harry’s handwriting was so bad it could have given a drunken spider with 5 legs a run for its money! Sound familiar? Is it bad eye-hand coordination or does it mask another problem? Jo Linthwaite @ Kip McGrath

Harry had been struggling with English throughout junior school years but managed to disguise his weaknesses through coping mechanisms such as bad handwriting, help from friends, answering comprehension questions by quoting chunks of the text and hoping for the best! Now in year 10 he was a predicted grade E in English, despite his ability in reading. He had good ideas but found it really difficult to get them down on paper and being also weak in spelling and punctuation made it all worse. Harry really didn’t know where to start and any reference to different writing ‘styles’ for GCSE coursework left him floundering. Luckily Jo knew where to start! She designed an individual learning plan covering spelling, punctuation and

handwriting. As his confidence in these basics grew so did his ability to tackle descriptive and persuasive pieces. He could tackle GCSE questions and after a couple of months he got positive feedback not just from his English teacher but also his History and Geography teachers too. What a bonus! So how is Harry doing now? He has just had his latest English controlled assessment and the result? A magnificent B! So another triumph for a Kip student and a well-deserved cup of tea for Jo!! It is all in a day’s work for the tutors at Kip, but it makes a massive difference to the future lives of their students. Suddenly further education and career choices become a real possibility.

Help your child go far with Kip McGrath Our qualified teachers create individual tutoring programmes for your child, using proven Kip McGrath methods.

Queen’s Park: 2016

We talk to Amanda Serjeant from CBC about Chesterfield’s new Sports Centre due to open its doors early in 2016. Words: Nicola Chapman Images: Chesterfield Borough Council & Andrew Robinson With headlines like ‘UK among worst in Western Europe for level of overweight and obese people’ and ‘Obesity quadruples to nearly one billion in developing world’ we can see why encouraging participation in Sport and Leisure is important. And for Chesterfield this has an added importance as research shows less people in the town are engaging in sport and leisure than the national average. It’s on this basis that the council committed to investing in a new Queen’s Park Sports Centre. Amanda Serjeant (Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism at Chesterfield Borough Council) explained “the provision of sport and leisure facilities Page 30

is not a mandatory requirement for councils and as budgets have got tighter many councils targeted this area to be cut. But based on the figures we’ve seen about Chesterfield’s activity levels, we didn’t believe this was the right approach. We also decided to keep the facility under council management and control. The aim is to provide access to sport and leisure facilities for as many people as possible, and with council control we can ensure more people have access to the facility by maintaining the option to ‘pay as you go’”. Regular users of the facilities will be aware of the problems at Queen’s Park, the run down changing rooms, missing tiles and cubicle curtains, chewed locker bracelets and a strange unpleasant smell, to name but a few.

Amanda explained “Most people agree that Queen’s Park Sport Centre is out of date and not fit for purpose. It wasn’t built as a leisure centre, it was built in the 60s as a swimming pool. In the 80s the dry side courts and the learner pool were added – that’s why there’s so many corridors, why the learner pool is separate from the main pool and the changing rooms sometimes

smell of drains. The original plumbing just wasn’t built to cope with the additional load we’ve added over the years.” “One of the reasons we opted for a new build, was that just to update the plumbing alone would cost over £1 million, it’s much more cost effective to build new”. And cost has been a major factor throughout.

“The current facility costs the council (and council tax payers) £1.2 million per year in subsidies, that is money we could spend elsewhere on services to support the town. We want to make sure we offer best value and the new facility has enabled cost efficiency measures to be built in. The current swimming pool has a high ceiling and is surrounded by glass, this makes it difficult to heat and the temperature difficult to regulate. Having the learner pool separate from the main pool means it is out of the line of sight, making it difficult for parents to watch their children and impossible for life-guards to monitor both pools, so it needs twice the number of life guards. The number of corridors and the layout of the changing rooms make it difficult and time consuming to clean and

the current facilities are not as accessible as we’d like them to be for people with disabilities”.

The planning of this project started over four years ago, working as equal partners with Chesterfield College.  A plan had been developed based on the available budget which would see a 6 lane swimming pool, 6 court sports hall and gym along with other sporting facilities. However, in September last year a grant application to Sport England resulted in a welcome windfall for the project - having bid for between £1million and £2million, the project was granted the maximum grant of £2million, enabling the project to expand the scope and provide even bigger and better facilities - increasing from 6 lanes to 8 lanes in the swimming pool and 6 courts to 8 courts dry side. The plan has always been to collaborate with Chesterfield College, “between the ages of 15 to 25 many people turn away from sport and leisure, so the collaboration was really important, but it also provided an essential funding stream. Before we agreed to the shared approach the

Article centre usage was reviewed and between the hours of 9am and 5pm many of the facilities were not in use. It’s a waste of money to manage and heat an empty facility and we saw an opportunity for the college to make use of the space. So during college hours the students enrolled on the sport and leisure courses will use the facilities for training and learning.” It’s perhaps worth underlining at this point that the college use will be by students studying sport; these students are already using the Queen’s Park centre during daytime and term time. The existing generic sports facilities will still remain at the college campus for general use. The injection of capital from Sport England means additional facilities will be available and provide a better balance of the shared space, it will be open and fully accessible to the public at all times and there will be ample space for the students alongside.      

Continued Page 32

The current Queen’s Park Sports Centre will remain open until the new centre is ready for the transition of services in early 2016; this in itself is a major benefit to the town. During many projects of this scale the public would lose access to the facility during refurbishment, which won’t happen here. In fact the council’s Sport and Leisure Manager, Mick Blythe is committed to improving the current offering and boosting membership, so that when the new centre opens it can transfer a strong programme of activities in the facilities and start to support the centre with funding as soon as possible. We’ve reintroduced the midwife sessions at the centre, increased the number of sports and fitness classes offered and we’re enjoying the highest number of direct debit members ever.” The £11.25 million centre is being paid for by £6.725 million from Chesterfield Borough Council, £2 million from Sport

Flexible, accessible and efficient - the new facilities and spaces will provide multiple options – moving walls and floors extend the use of the spaces, portable facilities, training rooms that can be used for classes, teaching and meeting rooms. Morgan Sindall, who also built the Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock, commenced work in September 2014.

The frame of the structure is out of the ground and in the next few weeks an on-site education centre for schools and young people will be opened – aimed at teaching them about the ecology, construction, sport and engineering work that goes in to a project like this and to inspire pupils to want to use the centre in he future. The building is due to open early 2016 and there still remains a public consultation to consider plans for the old site.

I use the facilities at Queen’s Park maybe once a week and with the changes hopefully I’ll be there more regularly.

A 1st Class Opportunity Lucy Reeve joins the team at 1st Class Kitchens Words: Paul Chapman Pictures: 1st Class Kitchens

When Lucy Reeve walked into the 1st Class Kitchens showroom on Derby Road, she went in hoping to add some storage to their existing kitchen - little did she know she’d walk out with a new job. Lucy explained “I recently moved from Northamptonshire to be with my partner and we needed to rearrange the storage so I could fit all my stuff in. Our kitchen was supplied and fitted by 1st Class Kitchens so we popped down to order some new units. Helen and I

Page 36

were chatting and I asked if they knew of any vacancies locally for kitchen designers, and I was offered the job on the spot!”

1st Class Kitchens Ltd is owned and run by husband and wife team, Dave and Helen Oxley. Their second showroom in Walton at 139 Moorland View Road recently celebrated its 1st anniversary and they were considering extending the opening times at the showroom, so they offered Lucy a job. Lucy’s background is in kitchen and bathroom

design and for the last 10 years she’s been working with a number of businesses, from large retail chains to the smaller independent stores. “I much prefer working for the smaller bespoke business. I get the chance to see jobs through from beginning to end - greeting the customer, listening to requirements, surveying kitchens, suggesting design solutions which we walk through on computer screens and being involved in the final project management and delivery” explains Lucy. “People’s requirements are never the same, even in the same household” she adds, “I often feel a bit like a referee as couples consider solutions that are poles apart. Part of the enjoyment of the job for me is selecting products and designing a solution that keeps everyone happy. There may have to be a compromise here and there but I’ve not been beaten yet!” Lucy is settling in very quickly. “I’ve only been at the showroom for seven weeks but I’m finding my way around things. I love design, I soak up all the TV shows, Grand Designs, George Clarke etc and I take great inspiration from visits to design shows. I really enjoy attending the Grand Design show each year, there is so much to see and it’s exciting to bring those inspirations back with you.”

I asked Helen about the world of kitchens and how long projects are taking at the moment. “Projects are typically taking about six weeks but obviously this depends on design iterations. People can take a long time to get to the final solution but once we have an agreed design things happen quite quickly.”

“We are also about to embark on an update to the showroom at Walton so we’ll have some new displays in soon to give people new ideas and a bit of inspiration.

“One thing we’re seeing is a change in kitchen technology. The latest developments aren’t necessarily new products, but with the expensive cost of energy, energy efficiency is often at the top of people’s priority list. A++ rated appliances save energy in a number of ways, ovens are more thermally efficient, they warm up faster and hold the heat better, dishwashers use less water by recycling it, typically using 6 litres for a wash and not 12. Fridges and freezers are better insulated, this means you can now plan your fridge and oven side by side in your design if that’s right for you. “The bestselling appliances today are simple energy saving products, taps that provide instant boiling water in the exact quantity needed are really popular, as are waste disposals, as they reduce the amount of food waste in the house. There’s also a big increase in LED lighting. In fact all the lighting solutions we now provide are LED, and they operate at a fraction of the cost of the halogen down lighters.” So one last word from Lucy on the area that’s now home? “It’s great living so close to the Peak District, I’m in Brampton and the flexibility offered by this job allows me, my partner and my dog Penny the chance to explore everything the area has to offer. It’s so different to Northamptonshire which is very flat by comparison.” If you’re looking to update your kitchen, office or bedroom the Walton showroom now has extended opening hours from Tuesday to Friday between 10am and 5pm and on Saturday from 10am to 4pm, or visit the showroom at 456 Derby Road, Chesterfield.

Jessica Jayne JJ’s Flowers Words: Paul Chapman Pictures: JJ

I’m sitting in the ‘old’ front room, and what is now the back room of the new flower shop on Chatsworth Road. I’m meeting JJ, or Jessica Jayne and her beagle, Benjamin to find out more about their new home. Until Jessica mentioned it, I hadn’t noticed how the shop stands forward of the adjoining terraces, and she explained it had been extended forward, turning the ‘front room’ into the ‘back room’! Jessica Jayne Hodgson, lives in Somersall and is daughter to Garry Hodgson who has owned Imperial Windows for 31 years. JJ’s isn’t a new business, celebrating its 2nd anniversary in March, she was previously located above Imperial Windows, her father’s premises at 3 Old Road. Over these last two years she has built up a loyal bunch of clients “it’s a really intimate and privileged experience to be involved in someone’s wedding and in the process of designing and supplying beautiful wedding displays, bouquets and flowers many of my clients have become friends.”

“I didn’t have a shop front before, because I had a different vision” explains Jessica, “I wanted to create a space you could get lost in and feel you were in a flower world. I was getting 90% of my work through recommendation and as wedding and funeral flowers are by appointment, the space worked for me. I supplied flowers for about 80 weddings last year from ‘The Studio’ and it was ideal for meeting people face to face and getting to know what customers wanted for their special day. I couldn’t quote for occasions like that over the phone, I like to meet people, as everyone’s design should be individual.

When 424 came up, where Moo Moo used to be, it gave me the opportunity to create both a shop front and consultation room. The ‘Flower Shop’ at the front is nice and cold for keeping Page 40

flowers fresh, it’s a good space to work in and there’s the opportunity to sell bunches of flowers over the counter and take orders for delivery. Then there’s the back room or ‘front room’ of the original house complete with front door and sash window, where I can hold cosy consultations and run flower arranging courses”, more on that later.

Mondays as stock arrives fresh from Holland on Tuesday. By Saturday evening the shop should be empty, with everything used for a pre-planned wedding or sold through the week, I wouldn’t sell anything I wouldn’t be happy to receive.”

“The signage was inspired by a sign I saw on a restaurant ‘The Boathouse’ on a trip to Sydney to see my brother, I took a photo and when I returned went to visit Lyndsey at Bimbo who designed the new signage for JJs.” Floristry wasn’t Jessica’s first choice of career, her studies were in fashion and art but she soon realised Chesterfield wasn’t an easy place to earn a living in these fields so started working in hospitality. “I had jobs at Nonnas and The Peak Edge Hotel at the Red Lion at Stonedge. The team at Nonnas were great, it was like one big family, and I’m so grateful to Damian and the team at the Red Lion for the opportunities and support they’ve given me” says Jessica, “but I really wanted to get back into art in some way, I just wasn’t sure how.” Jessica decided to sign up to a one year floristry course, from here she got a full time job with a florist and four years on she has her own business.“I’ve had great support from the businesses along Chatsworth Road since I started up, we really need to work together to keep the area vibrant” she adds. “My desire is not to be a traditional florist but to offer something different. By focusing on weddings and funerals I feel I can express my love of flowers. Weddings are about the start of a new life together and I feel that at the end of life, when a loved one is no longer with us, it’s equally important to celebrate their life with a beautiful display of flowers” says Jessica.

Jessica is inspired by the vintage and country garden styles, peonies and hydrangeas are amongst her favourite flowers, but she’s just as happy to turn her hand to a variety of styles and trends and loves staying up to date with what’s going on with fashion, flowers and colours around the world. Is there an arrangement you’re most proud of? “I believe everything I produce should be a photo opportunity, but a recent wedding arrangement at Stancliffe Hall springs to mind. The client was blown away, ‘better than she could have imagined’ was how she described it, which was just breathtaking to hear.”

With such a perishable product I would imagine it’s difficult to avoid waste? “I’m realistic about stock, I don’t open Sundays and

You mentioned courses? “I’ll be running one, 2 hour class, a month to start with, prices are £45 per person and the dates are on my website. There’s space for nine people on each course and you take home what you make, plus there’s always a supply of tea, coffee and delicious cupcakes. It’s great for hen parties, time to share with Mum or friends. It’s about enjoying flowers and being able to dress your home nicely.”

Living locally, where are your favourite places? “For entertainment and a night out it has to be Nonnas. I’ve also been going to Dynasty for food since I was just three years old, the whole family love it there. To escape from it all I’ll probably come into the shop, the back room is a great place to gather your thoughts. I also find designing displays therapeutic so it’s a great place to come and relax... and of course there’s Benjamin to walk.” If you could change one thing about Chesterfield what would it be? “Parking, the town centre is suffering, the parking is too costly and it keeps people away, you don’t feel you can pop in during the day. Chatsworth Road suffers from a similar problem, the restrictions are too short. There are sections where you can’t park long enough to go for a coffee and get your haircut.” Being a florist you must be a difficult person to purchase flowers for? “I believe all girls like to receive flowers, I’ve never received a bunch and not got butterflies. I might be a tough cookie to crack in that department but as long as they weren’t picked up at the supermarket or petrol station I’d still be happy”. JJ’s Flowers 424 Chatsworth Road

10 Garden Garden TipsThings

Garden Things for Spring Words: Colin Harrison 1. Plant out early potatoes; once the foliage starts to show, be prepared to cover it if a frost is forecast; most varieties will recover from a light frost but may be weakened, which could affect the yield. The cover can be as simple as a sheet of newspaper – anything as long as the foliage isn’t directly exposed to the freezing air will usually be fine at this time of year. 2. Plant onion sets and shallots. Birds sometimes think the tips are worms and pull them up; just push them back if this happens. To discourage the birds, run a few lines of black thread tightly over the bed.

3. Cut back dogwoods, willows, elders and winter flowering jasmine; also hard prune buddleias if not done yet.

4. If the weather is warm the lawn will start to grow, so if there’s a dry day give it a cut with the blades set fairly high. Petrol mowers can usually cope with longer, wetter grass but electrics may struggle, so try not to ever let it get too long. 5. Seed for most root crops can be sown now, although they will appreciate covering with a cloche or horticultural fleece – check the instructions on the packet. But on warm sunny days seedlings can easily overheat (especially with cloches) so bear that in mind. Some hardy salads can also be sown, e.g. radish, rocket and lettuce.

6. Weeds will start into growth, so try to prevent them getting a hold by regular weeding. At the same time you can prepare beds by lightly digging them over, incorporating any compost you have. 7. Dead head daffodils, letting the foliage die down naturally, then removing it when

it starts to turn yellow. This is when the bulbs reserves of energy are restored, and it prepares for next year - tying it up prevents this happening efficiently, and doesn’t look nice.

8. There will be a lot more heat in the sun, so open greenhouse and conservatory doors if you have seedlings in them, so they don’t overheat. But clear sunny days often mean clear, chilly nights, so remember to close them again. 9. Last year was perfect for slugs and snails, so expect there to be lots this year. As it gets milder they will start to appear in the garden, so be prepared to combat them – there are lots of possible solutions (pellets, beer traps, copper bands) but, whatever you do, you’ll never be entirely rid of them, so concentrate your efforts on precious plants and small areas.

10. Plants in containers will appreciate a top dressing. Carefully remove an inch or so of soil and replace it with a new one suitable for containers; it might seem unnecessary to use different sorts of composts for different places but, especially with pots, the right sort makes a big difference. This is when the gardening year traditionally gets going, so there’s lots to do; keeping on top of it all is the key to success. However, it can be weather dependent - never worry if you can’t do something at the exact time articles like this say you should; relaxing and enjoying it is far more important; get round to things when you can. If you’re trying to get your children interested in gardening then all your good work could be undone by dragging them out into the cold and wet for several hours to do something that could well wait for a week or two.

Article Business News Brampton Barbers Brampton’s Traditional Barber Shop

Peacock Inn Refurbed and ready for business

Brampton Barbers at 167-169 Chatsworth Road or Chain Bar Cottages as they were until the late 1800s has undergone its latest change. Carl Hague has been busy with his scissors... with the wallpaper!

Following the improvements to the beer garden last year, Tim and Jennie from the Peacock Inn at 412 Chatsworth Road invited me down to check out the newly refurbished interior of the pub. Instantly noticeable as you walk in is the contemporary feel, yet it has stayed in touch with its roots and kept the snug feel of a traditional pub - comfortable yet classic.

Many of the wood panels have been removed, the fireplace in the bar has been opened up and there’s an open fire filled with logs, for when the weather turns cold, at the both ends of the pub.

One of the doors has been moved, which makes it easier to navigate through the pub and out to the beer garden. Carl, previously of Grade 1 Barbers, is now at the shop full time, bringing 17 years experience and his personal approach. Carl said “I’ve given the place a face-lift, we’ve given the interior a new look and I’ve got some comfortable new chairs. I’m really looking forward to welcoming old and meeting new local customers”. “The place was looking a bit dated, so we’ve replaced the bar top and completely redecorated. It has really lifted the interior and brought it up to date. Our regulars have been very positive about the changes” says Tim, “and we’re very happy too. People can call in to see for themselves, we’d love to pull them a pint or pour them a glass of wine.” The bars can also be booked for private functions or parties so if you’re in need of a venue give them a call on 01246 275115. Call in for a cut and why not take advantage of the Dads and Lads, two cuts for £10 deal.

FOSP: Community Consultation

Have You Seen Bailey? Somersall

Friends of Somersall Park in conjunction with the council are beginning community consultation regarding the replacement of the play area. Four play companies have put forward proposals for the type of equipment to be used, should the group be successful in their bid for private funding.

This consultation will take place between 16th February and 31st March, with the group visiting local schools, community groups and churches to gather feedback. There will also be an online form with pictures of the proposals.

Missing since 16 January, can you help find Bailey, a male tabby from Somersall.

Visit www. uk to vote and have your say!

He has no bottom canine teeth and is almost completely deaf. He drinks a lot, looks younger than he really is and is very affectionate.
