Intro Hi All

July is almost here - the longest day has been and gone, and so has the sun!

It’s a time of change in Chesterfield, and we’ve six pages dedicated to the regeneration schemes around town - the one closest to home I’ve only touched on this month, so I’ll try and find out a bit more for next month. If all these projects find investors, the skyline of Chesterfield could look very different in a few years time. One thing that remains fairly constant is the cycle of nature, and Walton Dam has seven new inhabitants - ‘the seven dwarfs’ or ‘magnificence seven’ as I’ve heard them called. They are fluffy grey cygnets. I received some photos from one reader and a phone call from another - John Parker of Heaton Street who has adopted the brood.

John invited me down early one morning to see him feed them with his specially prepared breakfast - strictly for the birds though! I snapped away, chatted and met one or two people who walk through the dam at 7am in the morning - the sort of time I’m usually prising open an eyelid. John explained “the first egg was laid on 31 March - with an egg laid every other day until the 13 April (eight eggs in total). The mother or pen, started sitting on Friday 13 April, and after sitting for five weeks eight eggs hatched on 19 May - unfortunately one cygnet was lost overnight on 6 June, leaving the seven you see pictured below. Thanks for inviting me down John, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m going to keep the intro short this month to allow for the pictures. Till next month, Paul.

Chatsworth Road Festival Deirdre Gage, chair of the Chatsworth Road Festival committee, has included her chairman’s letter in the last few editions of S40 Local to update us on the 2012 Festival.


o I’m hoping you know all about it by now... Things are coming together well and we now have additional support from five business coordinators along Chatsworth Road. These guys are working with businesses - spreading the word and encouraging people to get involved. The coordinators are Deirdre Gage (Created Gallery), John Rhodes (Select Interiors), Sofia Ward (Harleys), Janine ManionJones (JMJ Pottery) and Teresa Lambarelli (Lambarellis). This year’s Festival takes place between the 6 and 14 October 2012. We’ve already got some events in the calendar and over the next few weeks we’re hoping more will be confirmed. Last year’s nine-day Festival saw over 90 events take place from wild food foraging to Morris and Garland dancing. My initial fears disappeared as the sun shone and people attended many events, the first Food Fair at St Thomas’ Church Centre was a huge success - so much so it’s continued through the year and they’ll be holding their first anniversary celebration during this year’s festival. Sally-Anne Beecham (manager at the Centre) said of last year’s event “Having a Food Fair was something we’d discussed before but it was just a case of having the confidence to go ahead and do it.” Businesses up and down Chatsworth Road reported an increase in customers as the buzz of the festival

Page 14 •

brought out customers old and new. An open day at the long-established Brampton Courtyard encouraged people to visit and explore hitherto hidden delights. As the week continued a wide range of activities took place involving many in the community. Shirley Niblock, a councillor for West Ward helped drive forward a number of events including the Food Fair, she commented “I feel the Festival has been a marvellous success in terms of bringing people together and what’s happened throughout the week has shown it’s not just business that benefits”. The arts were well represented with book binding, pottery throwing, live poetry and creative coffee sessions to name a few. A busy week was had by many businesses and residents. As we said after last year - we plan to make the Festival an annual event and suddenly year two is just around the corner. We really want the Festival to have something for everyone, and to do this we’re looking for community groups, clubs, societies and businesses to host events and invite the community to come along and see what they’re about some of those visitors might become long term members or customers. So, there’s still time to plan an event - just decide what you’d like to do and get in touch so we can tell other people all about it. Fingers crossed for another great Chatsworth Road Festival week.

Embracing Life is a local charity being set up with the aim of devoting attention to people diagnosed with a life changing illness.


mbracing Life is about ensuring that the individual involved is able to live a life that is as full and rewarding as possible from this point onwards. It’s about coping after the diagnosis and getting back on a positive path. You may need to deal with changes or it may have caused you to seriously question your place in the world and so you may need help to move on. The charity is Chesterfield based, delivers non-clinical holistic support and creates a relaxing atmosphere in which to take some time out. It’s for Chesterfield and North Derbyshire residents and both young and old are able to benefit over the age of 18. Previously many people have had to travel out of town to get access to the type of support which will be available through Embracing Life. The approach taken is to tie up like-minded people who can share experiences and help those just coming through a diagnosis or illness that there

is life afterwards. The services on offer consist of practical support and information such as advocacy services, counselling, benefits advice through to provision of wigs and hairdressing services. On the complementary therapy side through Embracing Life people are able to gain access to Indian Head massage, reflexology, Reiki and massage services. Karen Carroll, Secretary at Embracing Life informed me that “Embracing Life started out in 2009 after a couple of people came up with the idea of a centre to offer complementary therapies to people living with the day to day impact of conditions such as cancer. Today’s steering committee consists of these two founder members plus two others, all having either suffered personally or have had family or friends who are dealing with the day to day stresses of living with long term conditions and all it entails.

“Over the first year it was clear that support for those suffering from cancer was far superior to that available to those suffering from other illnesses. This caused a rethink and we now aim to offer complementary therapies to anyone with a long term medical diagnosis to encompass heart disease, arthritis, ME, etc, along with advice, help and support and sign posting in a number of other areas such as benefits, patient advocacy, wig services, wills advice, citizens advice etc. “As a former cancer patient who had a young family (I was 35 years old the first time with two children aged 10 and 12) and had to continue to work during all the treatments, I know firsthand the struggles to simply keep focused on the day to day realities of life.  Whilst I had wonderful support from my family there was nowhere I knew about where I could go and relax, have a massage, talk to someone about me and all those things you can’t say to your family, as well as

finding out about support that might be available to help me, mentally, physically and financially.  A “one stop shop” where someone would offer me this relaxation at the same time as telling me what I needed to know or where to get the right help would have been a godsend for me and my family.” Recently Embracing Life hosted their inaugural Ball, with the support of Chesterfield based care agency, Individual Homecare Services. The event took place at the B2Net stadium in rooms generously provided by the B2Net at no cost and was attended by 140 people, local businesses

supported the event and through a Casino evening, auctions and raffles it helped raise funds for the charity. Bjorn Again (an ABBA tribute band) and local singers Mike Moore and Charlotte Knowles kept people entertained and it was an evening enjoyed by all. Embracing Life is working closely with the redevelopment of the Avondale Surgery on Ashgate Road. Practice Director, Kate Chilton, says “Avondale Surgery supports both the concept and ethos of Embracing Life with a GP and Nurse Practitioner engaged in this charity. We are looking forward to Embracing Life being part of our new

development on Ashgate Road, enabling us to work in an integrated way to provide care and support to patients and their families when long term conditions impact on life’s journey.” Embracing Life is still in the process of setting themselves up and hope to be in a position to offer their services in June 2013 in line with the development at Avondale. If you would like to know more about their services, would like to help with donations, join the steering committee or help with fund-raising activities they can be contacted via email at or by phone on 01246 476567.

Planning for the Future By Matt Kane.

After the redevelopment of the former Dema Glass site in 2010 to create a new football stadium, Casa Hotel and Tesco superstore, you might be forgiven for thinking that 2011 was a year of slow progress on the development front in Chesterfield.


n the contrary, over the past year, the regeneration team at Chesterfield Borough Council has been laying the foundations for a number of exciting multi-million pound projects that will take the town to the next level. Speaking to a packed meeting of the Civic Society at the Eyre Chapel in May, Mike Hayden, who is Head of Regeneration at the Council, reflected on the positive impact that the A61 corridor development had generated in the town as well as the attention it had received nationally having come runnerup to the Olympic Park Project in the 2011 Regeneration and Renewal Awards.

So, what’s next for Chesterfield? Well, the Waterside Project in the Tapton area of the town is now the fifty first largest regeneration project in the country with a staggering £300m of investment once the site is complete. The new development will see 1,500 new houses and apartments Page 30 •

built as well as 30,000 square feet of office space and a new link to the Chesterfield Canal. But the Council is as keen to see regeneration of its current assets as much as seeing new buildings spring up. As part of that, the town centre’s Market Hall will be given a £4.3m facelift which will include a new first floor and balcony, atrium and cafe at ground floor level. The scheme is expected to be completed in August next year. Perhaps the biggest project on the horizon concerns the current ‘Donut’ roundabout which is anticipated will be transformed into a major retail extension to the town centre comprising a mix of a food store, cinema, hotel, high street shops and restaurants. To compensate for the parking lost on the Donut, new and innovative parking options will be explored including underground spaces. Eager to press ahead with the scheme the Council has already rebranded the area as the ‘Northern Gateway’ and has selected it’s preferred development partner, Wilson Bowden. Subject to a planning application being passed later this year, the new scheme could be up and running by the end of 2015. Closer to home, plans for a new supermarket and residential development on the old Walton Works site near Chatsworth Road are the subject of some debate. The anticipated proposals are likely to see a new supermarket approximately one-and-a-half times the size of the existing Morrisons in Brampton as

well as some residential development. Whilst there was support amongst some people inside the Eyre Chapel for an additional small or mediumsized food store to provide an alternative to Morrisons, others had concerns about traffic build-up on Chatsworth Road and the size and scale of the proposals. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of the town, the plans to convert the Birchall Golf Course into a new Peak Resort holiday village remain in place, to include climate controlled water sports facilities, a world class golfing green, sports injury centre and visitor accommodation. Outside the town, the Council has been working with public and private sector partners within the new Sheffield City Region local enterprise partnership, which amongst other things has resulted in Markham Vale, the major new industrial park at junction 29a, being designated as a new enterprise zone and £2.4million of Growing Places Funding being awarded to the Chesterfield Waterside Scheme to help build the new canal link. In addition to other incentives, the new enterprise zone will offer to businesses who want to set up there a streamlined planning system and tax incentives. All in all then, it’s been another hectic year at the Council. Hopefully 2012-13 is the year when Mike and his team will start to see the fruits of their labour.

2012 has been a busy year so far, what with the Jubilee and Olympics there’s lots happening across the country. The same is true of the Regeneration Team at Chesterfield Borough Council.


or a while the council has been working to regenerate some of our areas and also look at how Chesterfield can develop and remain one of the country’s top towns and hopefully climb to become one of the top 100 towns. Over the page you will have read about the general buzz created by the latest development, the Northern Gateway proposals. Launched this week at the Town Hall this £50 million plan aims to take

“Chesterfield is doing well to maintain balance, low vacancy and a huge amount of activity taking place in the town on a market day, quite unlike any other similar sized town.” David Ward, WIlson Bowden Developments. Chesterfield to the next level. Councillor John Burrows outlined that “the plans will help secure an expected increase in spending of £40 million per year, a day and night extension integrated with our present town with Continued overleaf. Page 32 •

Pictured below is an aerial view of the development; pictured on the following pages are views of the interior space and a floor plan of the site.

the potential to create 1000 new jobs. We are looking to attract high end retailers, no more charity shops, and want to keep spend in Chesterfield, restricting the flow of people to Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham and Meadowhall.” Councillor Burrows finished by stating “I believe this can be delivered and is a realistic plan for our town.” Alongside the Northern Gateway there was also some news with regard to the Waterside development which has recently secured £2.4M of investment to cover the infrastructure needed to support the development. Wilson Bowden are the Northern Gateway development partner appointed by the council and David Ward, Planning Director from Wilson Bowden Developments, outlined the size of the development. When people initially see the plans they are surprised to think that the new scheme

Page 34 •

can all fit on the old donut car park. A major food store, cinema complex, 85 new homes, an 80 bedroom hotel, additional retail, restaurants and outdoor spaces including a new performance area. The actual site takes in the Allen and Orr timber yard, the Jackson’s Builders Merchants, the old petrol station site and the present multi-storey, so a major site for the bold new Gateway to our town. Rob Bently, the Brampton based architect involved with the project, presented the plans and talked through the changes. Those of you who know the Corner House development in Nottingham will know their work first hand as they were the architects responsible for transforming this central area of Nottingham. Many were concerned with the impact the loss of the donut and multi-storey car park will have, Rob reassured that the new development will include

underground parking which should result in a parking area roughly equivalent to the loss, maintaining the status quo. Overall the plans look impressive and although it’s early days, a planning application will be submitted later on in the year, the scheme should help position our town well against our competitors. If you want to see the plans first hand you can visit the web site The council and developers alike are keen to hear people’s views on the development, so if you do have an opinion, now is the time to share it. One final comment that was made by David from Bowden’s related to activity in our town on a Monday, market day, “Chesterfield is doing well to maintain balance, low vacancy and a huge amount of activity taking place in the town on a market day, quite unlike any other similar sized town.”

BIRDS FUNERAL SERVICES Established 1913 Father & daughter family-run business 24 hour service with Private Chapel of Rest Pre-Paid Golden Charter Funeral Plans Available Tel: 01246 566592 Mob: 07831 851 639 44 Loads Road, Holymoorside, Chesterfield S41 7EU

Holymoorside was once a self sufficient community with some people never venturing out of the village, and able to get all they needed within the small hub of shops, businesses and services. Literally cradle to the grave... well it’s the grave end that we were discussing when I went to meet Liz Craig and John Birds from Birds Funeral Services.


wasn’t sure what to expect when I was invited to their premises, hidden away a short distance beyond the Lamb Inn pub in Holymoorside, but what I didn’t expect was such an interesting and insightful afternoon learning more about their business and

also the community their family have been a part of for over 100 years.

Close, his mother’s maiden name, Snipe Close, the birds in the yard etc.

Birds family business was started by Liz’s greatgranddad, John Birds Snr, he lived and worked as a carpenter in Elton (Peak District) in the lead mining business until the industry started to suffer around 1900. Looking for a better future he moved to Holymoorside and started work for John Hill of Brampton - a Wheelwright and Joiner.

John Birds (Junior, now Senior) explains how the Birds family got into the funeral business “At that time the local carpenter had the tools and skills to fashion a coffin and the wheels for the carriage”, John can remember his dad working in the yard with tyres and hooping irons as he made the carriage wheels. “Because they had these skills and they were doing the coffins, it was typical for the carpenter to “undertake arrangements”, hence the name undertaker today. Following a local death, they would attend to the families needs, it being traditional to lay out the deceased at home before taking them to church in a carriage to be buried. Today people more commonly use a chapel of rest and at Birds they

John (Senior) met Bertha, Liz’s great-grandmother, from Holymoorside, they married, purchased some land from the Duke of Devonshire and built the house in which the family still live. John worked in and around the village building houses with John Hill - he was even responsible for naming some of the local homes - Short

do have a private chapel of rest and more recently have added a small comfortable function room where mourners can take refreshments after a service if required.

this connection. So I like to think that if people come to us they’re getting a more personal service - we’ve a greater sense of responsibility to our community and the people in it. If people come to us they’re in safe and supportive hands.”

teaching and join the family business. Liz has taught at Clay Cross, Newbold, Wigley, Holy Trinity at Matlock and more recently been supply teaching at Holymoorside. Now with a young family herself it may be that the family business is secure for years to come.

John (junior, now Senior) became involved with the business in 1955 “I remember as a 15 year old boy attending my first body, I went to help Dad, I’ve grown up with the business” says John. All the family are involved in the business and when talking to John it was apparent how well he knows a large number of families in the village. “There’s all sorts of stories I could tell, I remember our two heaviest people - 28 and 32 stone... both in the same week!

We continued to talk about how life has changed for an undertaker over the years, and John explained “When Dad started the funeral business, cremations weren’t common. It wasn’t until 1905 that the first cremation took place in Sheffield and the number of families choosing this option increased slowly. In 1963 the Chesterfield crematorium was built” said John. “This changed things for us and the procedures today are very different to those we adopted in the early days - but for us the dignity of the deceased has always been our prime concern, no matter what.”

What struck me talking to John was how much Holymoorside has changed. What was once a bustling village with three butchers, green grocers, a fish and chip shop, various other shops and a post office is now a single village shop and two pubs, yet still a village with a strong community, through schools churches, preschools, clubs and societies.

“Some jobs are more difficult for us than others, we’ve been part of the community so long that we have a relationship with the families and often there’s a real personal sense of loss with some of the funerals we arrange - large national firms don’t have

The family ran the funeral business alongside the building trade until 2001 when they decided to stop building and concentrate solely on the funeral services. Liz Craig, John’s daughter, has always helped out, but it wasn’t until 2005 that she decided to leave

John remembers life being busy for his Dad who would often have to down tools on a building job to collect a body or take a coffin to church for the funeral.

As I left to climb back in the van I noticed in the building opposite their workshop, an old door, now a window, that would have been the entrance to a shop. Driving down Loads Road there were various other old business premises that are now family homes and I couldn’t help but wonder how we’d managed to let the butchers, bakers and candlestick makers slip away. I guess we all have a responsibility for the choices we make in supporting our independent businesses.

The Bow of

Beeley Moor By Godfrey Holmes

High above Holymoorside, seen in the distance also from Yew Tree Estate, is the Bow of Beeley Moor – so named because it resembles a man’s dicky-bow tie !


his is where six ancient tracks - long pre-dating toll-roads, turnpikes and our much more modern public highways – all meet. Along these drover’s roads sheep and cattle would process: farm-to-farm, countyto-county, England to or from Scotland. Beeley Moor: a wide expanse of heather, tufted grass and peat bog, is wild and inhospitable at the best of times. Get off the tarmac and you can be wandering aimlessly in fog, snow and rain for hours

Page 42 •

– with no shelter from wind or storm. Quite frightening. There are solid gritstone guideposts- called ‘stoops’: each about four feet in height - but these are few and far between. One of the best-known on Beeley Moor has four arrows pointing right: Chesterfeild Roade, Chatsworth Roade, Bakewell Roade and Offerton (Alfreton) Roade. If the stonemason runs out of room, he simply stops carving at that point.

On Beeley Moor: the extremity closest to Hell’s Bank aims to drop people down to Beeley Village itself or to Beeley Lodge, en route to Edensor and Baslow.

The extremity closest to Harewood Grange is at the exact meeting-point of the Cat Hole Pass (Harewood Road) out of Holymoorside and the alternative skirting of Holy Moor from the same village: Loads Road (both exactly three miles long). Moving clockwise still: Gladwin’s Mark extremity allows a cutting across to either Sydnope Hill (the B5057 Red Lion to Two Dales Road or Slack Hill [ the A632 Chesterfield to Matlock Road). Finally, the Sitch’s Plantation extremity controls the main, unclassified, road from Chesterfield to Rowsley direct; and the Forestry Commission Plantations’ road (also unclassified) to Flash Dam and Peaceful Pines. Any bow also has an intersection-point. Therefore, walking the Bow has five starting points, not four. And,

Goodbye “Lovely Ladies” St Thomas’ Nursery Closure

“The lovely ladies at St Thomas’ Nursery” has been a phrase many have used over the years to describe St Thomas’ Nursery. It hasn’t mattered that the facilities have been worse for wear - and as someone rightly commented when recommending someone to visit “don’t look at the fabric of the building, feel the atmosphere” and that’s exactly what St Thomas’ has been about.

they’re confident in the environment and with their friends, they’re no longer upset to leave Mum or Dad, they’ve developed good social skills and can play fairly and share. It’s a lovely term for us seeing the children get ready for the transition to school”. The Nursery was established by St Peters and St Paul’s school in 1983 - when they became an independent trust they had to give up the nursery. Jane Haslam moved from their other Nursery, St Margaret’s Nursery on St Margaret’s Road working one day a week and took over running the nursery two years later. Initially opening three mornings a week, then adding a Wednesday, until the voucher scheme was launched during John Major’s government, when they started opening Mondays too to accommodate the sessions for children over four years old. When the

It’s a place close to my heart - both my children and my niece spent their pre-school years with the ladies, so we didn’t want this to pass without recording the event in S40 Local.

“if these ladies had a group of children and didn’t even have a book to show them , they’d still be able to keep them entertained they’re just brilliant”. Jane Haslam.

Jane Haslam - has managed the nursery for 24 of the 29 years and I went down to chat to her and her current team Sue Davie, Anna Lopez and Sharon Tromans. The Nursery was in full swing and what struck me was how happy and relaxed it was - children given the freedom to play, with structured activities available for them to dip in and out of - they were obviously loving it. Mrs Haslam explained “this is our easiest and most enjoyable term, prior to them leaving for school, we’ve no nappies to change, the foundations we’ve laid over the past few years to help children understand the boundaries and learn the routines etc. means

voucher scheme was extended to children over three years old the age mix of the children changed and we found the 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old’s didn’t mix too well with the older children, so started running separate afternoon sessions, as Jane explained “I’ve never

had a business plan for the Nursery - it’s always been about providing the right care for the children at the time - the changes have evolved with the circumstances. Even in closing the nursery it’s circumstances and changes that made the decision - school intake changes, operating costs, Ofsted regulations have conspired against us and it’s no longer viable. I could never have made this decision - I’ve had the best job in the world I’ve loved doing this, so much so, it’s never even felt like a job.” Amazingly, during the 29 years of the Nursery they’ve only had 11 different members of staff - and in an industry often renowned for its high turnover that’s a significant achievement - and none of the ladies plan to continue in childcare once they leave, Sharon Tromans summed it up “nothing can beat St Thomas’, it’s been such a special place to be...” When Ofsted asked Jane during an inspection what their best asset was, she immediately answered, ‘the team’ the inspector seemed

surprised it wasn’t a piece of equipment - but Jane would be the first to tell you - “if these ladies had a group of children and didn’t even have a book to show them , they’d still be able to keep them entertained - they’re just brilliant”. I asked Jane about the highlights: “it’s when that little hand creeps into yours, or when a child approaches you ‘Mrs Haslam do you know or can I tell you... or they crawl up on your knee, it’s the trust they grow to have in you...” So what next for the ladies? Well Jane just doesn’t know yet “It’s really emotional for me and I’m finding it hard to see past the end of the term and closing. I ballroom dance so I keep saying I’m just going to ‘keep dancing’ and will probably take on the admin again for my husband’s building business - but in terms of developing a what next... I just need to get past the end of term, have a holiday and see what happens”. Sue Davie an avid football fan hopes to visit the 92 league grounds.

Anna Lopez plans to develop a Spanish teaching business and take on clients and Sharon Tromans is turning her study into a professional ironing room and taking on customers ironing jobs. So if you’re looking for Spanish lesson or ironing services - they’ll be pleased to hear from you Sharon on 07818 054 583 and Anna Lopez on 07960 687516. The 18 July looks as though it will be an emotional day for a lot of people, they’re holding a leaver’s concert in the church at 11am, to which everyone who’s been involved with the Nursery over the years is welcome - and the impression I get is that the concert will be a real tear-jerker - so don’t forget your tissues! So I think all that remains to be said is to thank Jane Haslam, Sue Davie, Anna Lopez and Sharon Tromans for everything they’ve done for the families they worked with over the years, we’ll be a poorer community for not having St Thomas’ Nursery. Very best wishes for the future and thank you! Continued overleaf.

“We cannot thank Jane and the staff at St Thomas’ Nursery enough for all the support and care they have shown towards our family. Both g Daniel and Tom have loved attendin nursery, and were extremely happy there. The staff have played such an important part in their lives so far, and we will always have such fond memories of St Thomas’ Nursery.” Rachel and Andrew Greatorex

The Death of the Derbyshire


By Robert Preece

It is only when you venture beyond the borders of S40 and further a field that our dialect becomes more apparent to us and others. Our accent and dialect is something we take for granted even though it’s something that gives us character and personality. Yet sadly, the Derbyshire dialect is slowly disappearing.


he folk most famous for using the Derbyshire dialect were miners and pit village communities that used to exist in certain parts of Derbyshire, such as Shirebrook. The miners’ language would have been rich and teeming with utterances that we’d struggle to understand today. One of the few examples that is still used today is the word ‘snap’ which was used as a colloquial term for food. This derived from the ‘snap’ sound that many of the miners’ lunchboxes would have made when down in the mines. The dialect they spoke in was something miners were proud of and something that gave them a cultural identity in those small communities. And, just like the days when the industries of wool, lead, iron, coal and cotton provided Derbyshire with the majority of its income, it seems the times of this rich dialect are long gone.

Why? Dialect and language are affected by social, technological and political factors. Most of England’s dialects developed in the rural and industrial centres of Britain, such as our mining communities. The decease of these communities along with the disappearance of old traditions, changes in how we communicate globally and a decrease in how sociable we are as a community, is what has inevitably led to the decline of our dialect. Words that made the Derbyshire dialect so unique are suffering a slow demise. ‘Gazunder’, a term used for a chamber pot that was placed under the bed was once used commonly in our dialect but the expression disappeared as soon as the chamber pot did. Other parts of the country called it a chamber pot, we called it a ‘gazunder’ because we would have said, it ‘goes under’ our bed.

Nowadays Today, the places that come nearest to replicating this old dialect are places that you will probably know quite well. They’re in touching distance of the S40 area. The Chesterfield Market and the Cattle Market in Bakewell are both havens of language where the Derbyshire dialect is still used on occasion. They are both places where our communities come together. Nevertheless, it must only be so long before other expressions such as ‘cob’ are wiped from our vocabulary and are changed to other interpretations of the word such as ‘bread roll/cake’ that are used in the North and South of England. Perhaps the phrase ‘duck’ will go, a term shortened from ‘duckie’ as a phrase of endearment. Maybe even words from Middle English used today such as ‘thee’ and ‘tha’ will cease to exist in our vocabulary. It’s a shame that something from our heritage is disappearing. We are so concerned with the historical upkeep of our landscapes and buildings yet there’s nothing we can do about our dwindling dialect. You can’t renovate a dialect. I wish we could.

ARTicle by Des Holmes

‘There is only Matisse’ Picasso said, and Matisse said about Picasso ‘that bandit – he sees everything!’.


n all professions there are those who stand above the others, and in the art of the last century it is Matisse and Picasso who have stood out as the major figures inspiring the others, and whose influence is felt down to our day. As the above statements suggest they also influenced each other and not surprisingly, I have been and continue to be inspired by them. It has been suggested in the past that I had ‘an obsession’ with them – and in a way I suppose I have – but this goes beyond mere adulation. Bridging the 19th and 20th centuries, they both lived at a time of incredible upheaval and change, social, political and industrial – reflected in the arts – and painting itself had witnessed radical and innovative departures both in technique and subject matter during the latter part of the 19th century. The use of colour by Delacroix, the stretching of proportions by Ingres, the shocking use of ordinary people as subject matter by Manet – all brought about a whole new group of artists who outraged both the establishment and the public towards the

end of the century. We know them now collectively by the term ‘the Impressionists’ and it’s easy to forget (hard to believe ?) the outrage they caused at the time. Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Seurat, Renoir, Monet, Cezanne – most of these were still alive when Picasso and Matisse were beginning their careers in Paris. Not only did they have access to the works of these people (men?) but in some instances either knew them personally or at least knew those who did. Both had acquired classical and traditional training and had a thorough grasp of the principles of painting, both had the drive, intelligence and ambition to develop new ways of painting, and were contemporaries of others who were to become major recognised artists, and between them they rewrote the rules of painting. This was not reckless abandon or anarchic destruction, but the result of having grasped a full understanding not only of the art of their time but also of what had gone before. As someone once said ‘to take a step forward one must have a foot in the past’. Albert Einstein stated the reason for his own success when he said ‘it was by standing on the shoulders of giants’. The reason why I personally keep referring back to Matisse and Picasso is quite simply that they seem to know more about painting and art than anyone else, and have left a legacy in their work which I believe will be difficult to overcome for quite some time, if ever ! Perhaps as an artist I may be able to add my own small contribution, but – if you’ll excuse the pun – tackling these two giants is a tall order.

Brampton Brewery FC End of season report by Anne Nowak. The end of the season for Sunday League football saw Brampton Brewery FC finish fourth, with 36 points - an excellent achievement for their first ever season.


ooking back on the final six Brampton Brewery FC fixtures:

A ‘BBFC goal feast’ might best describe the two encounters between BBFC and Boot and Shoe from Grassmoor – where scores of 6-2 and 7-1 secured 6 points for the team. A special mention goes to top scorer Liam Roberts for netting 10 out of the 13 goals, with Ben Thorpe, Dan Nowak and Jack Howells scoring the rest. Despite taking a two goal lead, the final result was not so impressive against ‘runaway’ league leaders AFC Moonrakers - with BBFC on the wrong side of a 5-2 scoreline at the final whistle – even with Liam Roberts adding a brace to his goals tally. The match between BBFC and Chesterfield Phoenix, both in the top four of the division, was always going to be a close

encounter and goals scored by the usual suspects - Liam Roberts, Ash Harden and Ant Brown were only enough to give them a 3-3 draw. The final game of the season fell on the 13 May, this also being the final league game for young keeper Matt Jepson who is off to Uni in September. Matt was promoted to Captain for the day against Chesterfield Town Reserves where goals from Liam Roberts, Paul Hirst and Ant Brown resulted in a 3-0 victory. To round off the season a BBQ and presentation afternoon was held at The Tramway Tavern on a rare sunny Sunday afternoon - each player received a trophy and additional trophies were awarded to:

Brimington United, in the “Bring Your Boots” event organised by Chesterfield FC. Ash Harden scored first in the opening 10 minutes before United quickly responded to make it 1-1. An outstanding second half saw Ash Harden grab his second, before Liam Roberts scored in injury time to seal a 3-1 victory.  Each player received a medal and BBFC were awarded with a silver salver - their first ever silverware.

Jamie Sales – Most Improved Player of Season. Paul Hirst - Managers’ Player of Season. Liam Roberts – Top Scorer and Players’ Player of Season. Although the season was over, the team had one final exciting game at the b2net stadium on 15 May, against local rivals

In other exciting news - BBFC has been awarded Adult Charter Standard status recognition from the FA that the club is well run both on and off the pitch. Pete Collins from the Derbyshire FA presented a plaque and certificate to BBFC Committee Members Anne Nowak and Roger Bates at the b2net. Manager Dan Nowak sums up the season. “To finish fourth in our first season and also be awarded Charter Standard Status is fantastic.  We’re having a few weeks off and plan to start back training at the beginning of July. We’ve high hopes for next season to secure promotion... I can hardly wait for the season to start.”

Westfield Infants Jubilee Crafts & the Queen’s Card. Westfield PFA

To celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee the PFA at Westfield Infants School recently held a crafting event to help get everyone in the mood. Fifty children attended the event, run by the PFA and carried out a number of activities over the space of an hour. Activities included decorating a crown biscuit, making a commemorative stamp, a Beefeater bag and a wax relief firework on paper plates. The pictures show the kids and parents getting stuck in, literally, with biscuits and all sorts of stuff. The smiling faces on the bottom picture show what a great time was had by all. The finishing project was to decorate a large card for the Queen which was sent to the Queen at Buckingham Palace to say congratulations from the children of Westfield. I wonder if it’s on the mantel piece? Well done to all involved and it was just a shame we weren’t able to come along as I love the Beefeater bags.

Established in the early 1990s they operate to six guiding objectives but the key is to ensure the long term future and integrity of the café market. In February 2010 the Café Society established the Café Society Awards, seven categories covering all aspects of café culture; one of these categories is the Independent Café/Coffee Bar of the year. This is about recognising the work done by entrepreneurs to develop a successful outlet for quality coffee.

10 things to do in the garden By Colin Harrison of Transition Chesterfield Many thanks to Ashgate Gardens for the tips they’ve shared over the last three years. This month we have gardening tips courtesy of Transition Chesterfield. Over the coming months we’ll be focusing not only on the garden but also the vegetable patch and how we can grow our own in unused space at the bottom of the garden. Thanks to Colin Harrison from Transition Chesterfield for supplying this month’s updates. At the time of writing, the weather has been mostly cool and damp, and looks to continue that way for a bit longer, so these are general guidelines to follow… 1.

Given how wet it’s been, this may seem a bit strange, but check anything in containers to see if they need watering; the leaf cover can divert the rain and stop it actually reaching the soil.


Take any opportunity to cut the grass, but raise the cutting height to allow it to be longer than normal. Grass is an essential component of compost, but, especially if it’s wet, it needs to be mixed with other material (torn up cardboard is good).


Stake tall-growing plants; the best height for supports is about two thirds that the plant is expected to grow to, so they’re hidden from view – you don’t want to be looking at a garden full of canes.


If you were organised enough to get salads in early you should be able to start harvesting, and pick cut so you can encourage those leaves to come again. Depending on the weather, some fruit and veg may also be ready for use.


It’s not too late to sow some herbs and salad leaves – there’s plenty of different mixes available, and they will grow more or less until the first frosts anyway; they grow well in pots or any container. Vegetables that are suitable for over-wintering (mostly roots) can also be sown now – check the instructions on the packet.


Keep weeding; if it stays wet, hoeing won’t be effective as the plants won’t dry out, but pulling weeds is much easier if the ground is damp anyway.


If you do have to water, do so as late in the evening as possible, and use a hose to direct the water where it’s needed, rather than sprinkle everywhere indiscriminately.


Container plants (and some in the ground) should be fed, but in well tended soil – one regularly manured and mulched with compost - this shouldn’t be necessary.


Dead-head ornamental plants such as roses to keep the display going for longer. However, some wildlife feed on the hips (which are quite ornamental), so leave them to form, especially later in the season.


Relax and enjoy yourself – the garden’s supposed to be fun!

Lastly, if you have a surfeit of a particular crop, freeze it while it’s fresh or see if you can swap it with friends and neighbours.

Diamonds are one’s best friend...

Will Jackson’s Blog

It appears that since last month’s blog (about BBQ’s and all that ‘roll on summer’ talk) we have been plunged into days and days of heavy rain and grey cloud misery! Obviously I take full responsibility for the fact that summer appears be over because of this so I’m sincerely sorry, I really am. So this month, I am going to avoid mentioning the weather in the hope that Summer will arrive again and hopefully remain for longer than one week.


hat on earth has happened this last month? The Diamond Jubilee that’s what! The Queen of England has reigned this country for over 60 years and whether you like the royals or not, you have to admit; it is a pretty good achievement. I for one respect anyone who can stick at the same job for 10 years, let alone 60! Admittedly many will say that it isn’t the hardest job in the world but irrespective of this, the Queen has managed to do her ‘thing’ all that time whilst maintaining the nation’s respect and avoiding any scandal in the tabloids. I kind of like her, she’s cool and as for Prince Philip; well, he’s a legend. So after 60 years of relentless waving, avoiding muttering anything incriminating that a decent lip reader might turn into a tabloid headline and continually reminding Prince Philip not to say anything to offend the ‘locals’, the celebrations began and I have to say, from my television, it all looked very British and indecently spiffing; what, what. Of course, I am not one to criticise (!) but I must stress that if happen to be gainfully employed at the grand old age of 86, I am fairly sure that I will not choose to celebrate the event by spending the whole day on a large golden canal boat on the river Thames watching hundreds of passing rowing boats. I can assure you that I also wouldn’t want to do this whilst being battered by driving rain, cold wind and under continual televised attention; Personally, I would opt for two weeks in the Maldives accompanied by Girls Aloud. Of course, I am not completely unreasonable, and I do appreciate that the Queen and I may enjoy different things but I am still convinced that Her Majesty may have been

slightly hoodwinked into doing the ‘Thames’ thing… or that Girls Aloud were unavailable. Although slightly unrelated, was it just me or was it mildly disappointing to not have seen David Walliams undertake a little breaststroke or front crawl somewhere in the proceedings? Mind you, I guess you only swim in the Thames once. All in all, day one went without a hitch (although Prince Philip may have something to add to that) and onward rolled the celebrations into day two; During an evening of musical entertainment, Her Majesty patiently sat through performances by Robbie Williams, Rolf Harris, Will.I.Am and some other rather dusty musicians I have never heard of; Elton Joans, Cliff Rashers and Paul MacDonald’s to name a few, which to be honest, sang some good stuff. I couldn’t help thinking that they should maybe audition on the X-factor; you know, try and make a career out of it? Mind you, they would probably have been more suited to the music industry 40 or so years ago, there was more of a gap in the market for them back then… oh well; missed opportunities I suppose. I have to admit though, after two days of bunting, cardboard masks depicting royal family members and continual television coverage I did find myself having to escape from it all. There is only so much royal loveliness one can take and whilst I fully support the achievement that was being celebrated, by day three I couldn’t help but opt to tune into re-runs of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ and ‘Flog It!’ instead. Yet despite the excessiveness of the celebrations, a Diamond Jubilee will probably not occur again in our lifetime so I guess that we should be proud to have witnessed such an epic event and it goes without saying that whatever celebrations you may have been involved in, I hope that they were enjoyable, even if it was merely enjoying a long weekend in the wind and rain, with no hope of a BBQ. Oh, and roll on summer! Regards, Will Jackson Many thanks for reading. If you would like to read any more of this complete and utter nonsense there are more articles available at
