Dates for the Diary

From the Editor

E

very now and again things take one by surprise. I’m sure we can all think f examples but the one that springs to my mind has been the success of the Couch to 5K(ilometres) group started by Tideswell Running Club back in January.

Thu 10 - Down the Garden Path, David Bell, Local History Club, The Institute 20.00 Fri 11 - Opening of the History Phone Box, Fountain Square 12.00 Fri 11 - Tea With Mussolini (cert PG). Cressbrook Film Club 19.30 Sun 13 - Tidza Ramblers Meet Cherry Tree Square at 10.00. Thu 17 - Charity Quiz, The Star 21.00 Fri 18 - Good Friday Activity Worship, 10.00 Parish Church Thu 24 - Tideswell Cinema “Captain Phillips”, 19.30 The George Mon 28 - “The Winter’s Tale” ballet, Live from ROH, 19.30 The George Saturday 3 May, Tideswell Food Festival, 104, throughout the village. Sat 17 May - Kel Elliott band Wormhill Village Hall £8 19.30. Saturday 31 May West Gallery Quire Concert, 7pm, Christ Church Litton

I imagined that a hardy handful would turn out and over the ensuing 12 weeks, numbers would dwindle to one or two. But no. Over 20 turned up in the dark and cold of a lonesome Monday in early January. Now as the evening lengthens only three or four have dropped out (and for valid reasons of injuries only). The official meet on Monday is supplemented by a Wednesday run along the railway line and groups head off on a Saturday or Sunday to put in the third run of the week. The culmination of their 12 weeks’ training is the No Walk in the Park run in Chesterfield on 5th April. Let’s raise a cheer to those fabulous souls who have endured the wettest winter ever and here’s to many more surprises. Pete Hawkins

Community Kitchen Garden

L

Weather: even the weather was kind to us for the Work Party.

ast month we wrote down our wish list and didn’t we do well!

AND – something that was not even on our wish list, we were offered a greenhouse at a price not to be refused. Luckily we managed to take it down, and move it without breaking a single pane of glass. Now we need a base so that we can erect it in the Garden.

Containers: we have had offers of large containers for growing more vegetables and herbs. Volunteers: we had a great turnout for the first Garden Work Party and it was great to welcome new volunteers. Between us we were able to clear the slope that had become a bit of a dumping ground, getting it ready to plant wild flowers. Henry and Stuart disposed of all the old carpet, glass and metal which was good. So this area is going to become the Wildlife Garden. And a big thank you to the catering team from Café Church for providing the volunteers with cakes – they were much appreciated.

Do come and join our next Garden Work party on Sunday April 6th. Looking ahead to Tideswell’s 4th Food Festival on May 3rd, when the Garden will be full of fun and activities for all the family. A really good start to the 2014 season!

Tidza Ramblers

The walk had been good but the weather simply exceptional for early March.

T

hough still officially winter it was like a perfect summer’s day as we set off from Grindleford. It was nice to have the company of some younger people too. We pooled our knowledge of the history of Padley Chapel, discovering that one of the martyrs had been a teacher in Tideswell. Coppice Woods beckoned, then the riverside path to Hathersage. A steady climb took us close to the hill fort of Carl Wark from where the views were panoramic.

Pot Holes

Helen Royle - 872507

T

he severe wet winter weather has caused extensive damage to the county’s roads. The County Councils taking action to mend as many potholes as quickly as possible - their road workers and external contractors are working extra hours to help fix the backlog.

Families were relaxing and children paddling in the sunshine at Padley Gorge. This was voted the best picnic spot in England with places like Kew Gardens and Blenheim Palace lower down the list. Perhaps their ice-cream vans are further away.

So far this year they have had 7,600 reports about potholes compared to 5,200 during the same period last year. If you do spot a pothole please report it online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/reportit

Parish Council Matters

A

t the March Parish Council meeting, dog fouling was once again discussed. Despite the plea in the last issue of Village Voice, people continue to let their dog(s) foul and also leave bags of dog poo on other people’s property. Please stop this anti social behaviour. There is no excuse for it. On a more pleasant note, the Community Awards for 2014 were also discussed at the meeting. The standard of nominations is as high as ever . THE PRESENTATION NIGHT WILL BE ORGANISED SOON, AND WINNERS ANNOUNCED. The Derbyshire Association of Local Councils (DALC) will be giving training to members shortly. Members of Parish Councils have responsibilities, although they are unpaid volunteers. The law is specific on what the Council may and may not undertake, and all the Councillors are eager to learn more from DALC. Councillors felt that the road signs for Tideswell should be reviewed as visitors do not always find Tideswell easily, depending on which route they use into the village. The tenders for gardening work should be sent to our Interim Clerk Janice Jackson. (01629 650727) . Councillor Mary Landon(01298 871817) is happy to give information about the work, and further details are available on the Parish Notice Board. The notice board is getting a little full, as we have been unable to open part of it for some time. This will be rectified shortly. Thank you for to all for your patience. In the big scheme of things

April 2014

it has taken a back seat while we deal with other more pressing work. I would like to make a personal apology to residents who may have tried to contact me after the stormy, windy weather. Our telephone line blew down around the same time as the Sherwood Road tree, and we had no land line for 11 days. Consequently, the voice mail was full when we finally were back on line, and I had 535 emails to answer. If you had been trying to contact me, apologies. Sue Barber on behalf of Tideswell Parish Council

Hearty Health Check The NHS Health Check programme is aimed at people aged between 40 and 74 who feel generally well and are not already known to their GP for existing cardiovascular conditions. The County Council fund the testing programme as part of their public health responsibilities to catch problems early and reduce future health and social care costs. But although the tests are free, only 60% of the residents who qualify are taking up the offer. Cardiovascular disease, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes, is a significant cause of premature death and disease in Derbyshire. The NHS Health Check involves taking a small blood sample from a finger pin prick to test for cholesterol. Blood pressure is also checked and lifestyle issues such as smoking and diet are discussed to create a cardiovascular disease risk score which, if high, can be addressed. 10

From Tideswell to Somerset

W

ell done to Phil Stafford for his delivery of food etc from our village to the flood victims in Somerset. His Shop in Tideswell van was packed solid, and demonstrated what a caring community we are. There is a display of some of the photos he took in the Parish Church. Do pop in and have a look. It really did look like an inland sea. There is also a display about the Air Ambulance. Each month the church has a particular focus, and April’s highlights the amazing work the helicopter does. It is called out to an emergency situation on average three times day - life saving missions - and each flight costs around £1700. We hope we never need it - but how grateful we should be that it is there. All the money to support and run this service has to be raised, as it receives no government help. The Anchor pub is holding a fundraising event on Friday 20th June - a date for the diary, and an opportunity to show our support.

A warm welcome to all! No previous experience necessary.

“Captain Phillips”

id you know that you don’t have to travel miles to go to the cinema?! Although Tideswell Cinema is a membership organisation, it is open for guest members to come to see any of our films, which are always shown upstairs in The George at 7.30pm, and usually on a Thursday evening, every month between September and April. It is run by a committee of local volunteers, and since September 2012 has also been showing Live screenings from The National Theatre and The Royal Opera House in London. The programme and further details are available on the website www. tideswellcinema.com. The Oscar nominated film “Captain Phillips” has been chosen as our April film. It is to

be shown on Thursday 24th April. (Guests - £4.75). Those who have already seen this recently released film say it is fantastic, and it has been reviewed as “smart, powerfully acted, and incredibly intense”. Starring Tom Hanks (“a brilliant performance”), it is the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates - the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years. The film focuses on the relationship between Captain Phillips and the Somali pirate captain who takes him hostage. Both men find themselves eventually at the mercy of forces they cannot control. Meals are available at The George before the performance. (We also have a film in May, as we are rescheduling the Italian film “Il Postino”, to be shown on 15th.)

Chef Joe’s Buns

Turn out and roll out to a 30x23cm rectangle.

CHELSEA BUNS Makes 7 Ingredients • 250g strong white flour • 1 tsp. salt • 1 ½ tsp. easy blend dried yeast • 1 ½ tsp. caster sugar • 25g butter, diced • 100-120ml warmed milk • 1 egg, beaten The filling • 125g mixed sultanas, raisins and currants • 50g muscovado sugar • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon • 20g butter To finish • fondant icing • warmed smooth apricot jam let down with a little water

Method

Prepare the filling by mixing the fruit with the muscovado sugar and cinnamon. Melt the butter and brush over the dough. Scatter the fruit mixture over, leaving a 2.5 cm border. Starting at the longest side, roll it up like a swiss roll and pinch the edges together to seal and then cut into 8 even slices. Place the rolls cut side up into the tin and cover with cling film and leave to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 190°C and bake for 2030 minutes or until golden brown and risen. Remove from the oven and allow the buns to cool on a wire rack. Prepare a little fondant icing by mixing icing sugar with a little water until a smooth but thick paste is achieved. Brush the Chelsea buns with the apricot jam glaze and drizzle the fondant icing over the top in a zigzag pattern. Leave to cool completely and serve with freshly brewed tea.

Grease an 18cm round spring form tin. Sift the flour, sugar, yeast and salt into a large bowl. Rub in the butter. In a bowl, mix the milk and egg. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour the liquid in. Bring the mixture together with a rounded knife and then knead for 10 minutes on a lightly floured surface until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Litton Parish Matters Pursglove News

L

ast month I reported on the grounds maintenance contract and explained that Barrett Lane in Litton is allowed to become overgrown in the early autumn to provide a supply of sweet cicily seeds for use in the well dressing. Since then I have been told there is an ample stock of seeds and supplies can be secured elsewhere. So Barrett Lane will be cut back in the autumn to provide a clear route for walkers.

Overall the Parish is relatively litter free and for this we have to thank all those residents who take the trouble to pick up litter as they walk around our roads, tracks and lanes or who come together for a communal litter pick. Unfortunately the same can not be said about dog fouling and there are some locations which are particularly badly affected. The Parish Council has ordered a number of signs to warn against dog fouling and will be installing a bin on Bottomhill Road in Litton. If you know of an area which is particularly badly affected please let your local Councillor know and we will try to do something about it. This year the Council will be holding its Annual Parish Meeting on Wednesday 21 May from 6.30 to 7.30 pm and nearer the time we will be circulating the agenda and further information to all households. It is important to the Council that we listen to what you say and check that what we are doing and plan to do reflects the needs of the Parish. So please make a note of the date in your diary and further information will arrive early in May. John Evans (Chair)

The last few months at Bishop Pursglove Primary School have been extremely busy as usual. Pupils at the school are working as hard as ever in lessons and many children have been achieving ‘Gold’ as part of the School’s Going for Gold’ scheme and took part in a fabulous Cocktail Party at the end of term. The scheme encourages the children to think about their individual role within the school community and how the choices they make can help the people around them. We have also celebrated World Book Day in school and the children and staff came dressed as their favourite book character. There were some lovely costumes including: Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter), Mr Strong (Mr Men) and even the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland). Photographs are on the school website. Staff are pleased to announce that the School’s SIRR (School Improvement Review Record) was graded ‘Outstanding’. This is a tribute to all the hard work that governors, staff and pupils have put in to make the school an exciting, friendly and enjoyable place to learn. We are currently working alongside our colleagues at Stoney Middleton School to implement the changes in the Government’s New National Curriculum, which is due to take effect in September 2014. This is an exciting time in school as children across Key Stage 1 and 2, in both schools, will get to learn about new intriguing topics! 26

fter weeks of careful planning, Sunday February 23rd arrived and it was all hands on deck for our Magic Lantern Show. Cakes had been baked, tables laid with cloths and napkins, best china all ready and the projector ready to go. The official start time was 2 p.m,. However, shortly after 1.30 p.m our first viewers arrived, very quickly followed by more and more and more! HELP – panic set in, tables were removed, chairs re-arranged and all our careful planning went out of the window. We eventually accommodated just over 100 people but reassured all those we had to turn away that we would have another show very soon. The event was a huge success and it thrilled us that so many of you came and supported us. We went on to have a further 3 more shows, again each one was enjoyed by all. We did notice that some people attended twice and three times, proof that all the hard work that our wonderful 'photo archivist' Paul Harrison has put into the show has been worthwhile.

It is a story of endearing love, loss and reconciliation, and is the highlight of The Royal Opera

All the delicious cakes were eaten, thank you to Janice , Helen and Diane for your help with serving the teas and baking, to Andrew for help with the chairs and to Thomas Eccles for designing the fantastic poster for us, you all did a wonderful job.

Please wear something red for this special occasion! The box will contain lots of interesting features and be a great asset to the village.

TRIP OF A LIFETIME

O

r so it was in July 1939 when Robinsons of Chesterfield celebrated their 100th anniversary by taking three thousand five hundred of their employees and guests on a day out to London. John Robinson, one of the family firm, told of this amazing trip at the March meeting of Tideswell Local History Club. What a remarkable day this turned to be! It was organised in two months flat and with military precision. Eight special colourcoded steam trains left Chesterfield around 5am. The guests had a slap-up breakfast enroute, and were met by 72 buses in London and ferried in shifts to Westminster Abbey, the Tower and London Zoo. All the guests had previously been given colour-coded badges and handbooks which kept them strictly to their own timetable. Only about four people missed the train – but what a day they missed! Robinsons must be one of the oldest companies in Britain. Originally they were potters, but by the 1600s had moved to producing clay tobacco pipes. In 1839 they bought a pill box company from a Mr Fletcher of Middleton by Youlgreave and grew to be the largest cardboard box manufacturer in the country (at one time they were sending 4.5 million Smartie tubes to York every week). The Crimean War encouraged Robinsons to diversify into lint manufacture and the production of surgical dressings and so they became a major employer in Chesterfield.

eaten so much food in their lives” with luncheon and high tea at Lyons Corner Houses and another meal on the train going home. Having seen the sights of London, they all attended a special variety concert in the Albert Hall which had 12 different acts on during the night including Tommy Trinder and Binnie Hale. The company employed a large number of teenage girl operatives and to look after their moral welfare in the big city, they were taken late to London Zoo and then bussed directly to the Albert Hall. At one point during the evening a large deputation of the Robinson family came on stage to welcome and thank their employees. Interestingly, the Albert Hall only cost £150 to hire, whilst the artistes stood them at £600. For today’s equivalent John works on a ratio of: £1 in 1939 money is equivalent to £50 today. This puts the cost of the entire trip at £300,000! A few years ago, John tried to cost a similar excursion at today’s prices, but soon found out that in our whiz-kid, computer-driven age, such a mass-movement of the people would be impossible to lay on. Such was the scale of the whole operation that it caught the attention of the media. There were several big features in the press and newsreel footage of the trip was being shown in picture houses. On a much more sober footing, the organisers were instructed to note the whereabouts of A.R.P. air-raid shelters in case WW2 was declared. It started two months later. Thanks very much John for the “Trip of a Lifetime”- a superb piece of social history.

All the employees must have been overawed by the London trip. “They had never April 2014

Parking Fraud Alert

D

erbyshire police are urging motorists to remain vigilant following reports of bogus parking fines. Fraudsters are contacting victims by email claiming that they have to pay a parking fine when they have not been in the area at the time of the incident. The email contains a suspicious attachment where victims are asked to download a form for making a payment and photographic evidence of the parking incident. The emails originate from justice.alerts@ public.gov.delivery.com and have been spoofed to make it appear as though they have been sent from justice.gov.uk. These emails are not from the Ministry of Justice or GovDelivery. Detective Inspector Rob King, Head of the Derbyshire Economic Crime Unit said: “I would like to urge anyone that receives one of these emails not to open the attachment as it is likely to contain a virus. Instead delete the email and report the incident to Action Fraud.” Detectives have teamed up with Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council in a bid to Stamp out Fraud in Derbyshire. The countywide drive focuses on increasing public knowledge of different types of fraud to protect Derbyshire residents from becoming a victim of the crime.

E-Library Books Derbyshire library users will be able to borrow more eBooks − and they could win a new eReader for either themselves or a friend. The library service is taking part in a pilot scheme to make more eBooks available. This means that eBook borrowers can download more than 1,000 titles which are not available in other areas. The aim is to carry out research into the impact of eBook lending in public libraries on authors, publishers and on the library service so that a suitable model can then be rolled out nationwide. The extra eBooks include titles from major publishing houses and prominent authors. These include ‘Bring up the Bodies’, the Booker prize winning novel by Derbyshire born Hilary Mantel, ‘Time to be in Earnest’ by PD James and ‘The Hell of it All’ by Charlie Brooker. During the pilot year of the eBook scheme anyone who has borrowed an eBook will be entered into a prize draw to win an eReading device. The eBooks can be borrowed for 21 days after which time they are automatically deleted from the borrower’s mobile device. This eBook service is open to Derbyshire library members. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Derbyshire. For more information about joining the library service or about eBooks please visit www.derbyshire.gov.uk/libraries.
