Tideswell Cricket Club Late May / early June match reports *25 May – Tideswell v Cathedral Cathedral 161, TCC 71 1 June – Elton v Tideswell TCC 154-8, Elton 104-9 3 June – Peak Park v Tideswell Peak Park 99-6, TCC 92-7 **7 June – Tideswell v Bel size Village TCC 232-7, Belsize V. 141 8 June – Tideswell v St Anselms St Anselms 162-7, TCC 163-7 ***15 June – T. v Hammer & Pincers H & P 180, TCC 148 Perhaps the best win this period was against the St Anselms School XI, whose respectable total was passed with 3 balls to spare, the winning shot coming fro m Nick Tay lor following Pete Nash’s explosive 54. Dav id Waining pouched a couple of good catches to help A.J. Finney to 3-40. This was the second win of the weekend, as the previous day London touring side Belsize Village had failed to get near Tideswell’s total of 232, in which John Goddard posted a 50, M ike Sayers made 35 and Pat Cafferky 31. Goddard took 3-12 as the visitors’ tail collapsed. The match away at Elton was the first meeting in a long time between these clubs. Played by local Elton rules, the win required Elton to be all dismissed – which they were, with very little to spare, Pete Nash taking 3-11. Pat Cafferky again scored 31 in the Tideswell innings. Sheffield Cathedral came to Tideswell following a lot of rain. The conditions were well mastered by their openers, who put on 139; but once M ick M ellor (3-6) had dismissed them both, the rest of the team could only add a further 21, with Tim Pepper’s 2 overs providing the extraordinary analysis of 5-4. Only M ark Serby and Pete Nash, both with 19, got to grips in Tideswell’s reply, where the slow bowlers again proved almost unplayable on the damp surface. In the evening game against a Peak Park side at Bakewell, the Park team posted a target of 99. Ryan Finney took 2-9, then hit an undefeated 25 to add to Nick Taylor’s 21 - but the run rate was not quite enough as Tideswell ended just 7 short of the target. Finally, and most recently, the Hammer & Pincers team from the eponymous pub in Bents Green chose a perfect sunny day to visit Tideswell, and won the match with a last-wicket partnership of 28 that proved roughly the difference in the teams’ scores. Nick Taylor’s 4-22 helped to dismiss the visitors inside the 40 overs. M ike Sayers (36) was run out in a mix-up, and despite John Goddard’s fighting 24*, tight bowling and defensive fielding kept the Sheffielders in control to the end. The Hammer & Pincers XI will be back on 27 July for another 40-over game. For forthcoming TCC fixtures, see the “Events” screen in the Fountain Square bus shelter information display. There has been some good cricket on show this season, and spectators are very welcome.

Introduction To Waist Watchers Local men keen to improve their health are invited to come along to an Introduction to Waist Watchers session, to be held at Eyam Mechanics Institute on 9th July 2003 between 7pm and 9pm. Men from across the Peak District are encouraged to attend and are welcome to bring along their partners, friends and work colleagues to find out more about the schemes. Following successful Waist Watchers courses in the area last autumn and this spring, more courses are planned for this autumn and an introductory event on 9th July will give interested individuals the chance to find out more about Waist Watchers and to meet up with men who have recently completed the Waist Watchers course. Supported by High Peak and Dales Primary Care Trust and run by the North Derbyshire Health Promotion Service, Waist Watchers is a project specifically designed to help men reduce the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of premature death amongst men in England. Studies have indicated that men aged between 30-60 with extra weight around their middle have an increased risk of developing heart disease and other illnesses, including strokes, diabetes and high blood pressure. Participation in Waist Watchers is free to all and encourages workplaces and community sites across the district to form teams of men who want to reduce their risk of these illnesses. The main intention of the scheme is to see a change in participants’ waist-tohip ratio through a mixture of education, support and exercise. Phase one of the scheme consists of tutorials, including sessions delivered by trained course leaders, on Fitness, Habits & Routines, Fat & Food and Stress & Relaxation, together with practical exercise sessions at an appropriate level for the group. Phase two sees participants enter into the Waist Watchers League, with the winning team receiving a health-related prize for their endeavours. Anyone wanting further information about Waist Watchers can contact Paul Boshell, Programme Manager, on 01246 231255 or simply come along to Eyam Mechanics Institute on 9th July.

Tideswell After School and Holiday Club Tideswell After School Club opened its doors in September of last year and has proved so successful that we hope to expand fro m the current 16 p laces to 24 after the summer holidays. The club runs nightly fro m 3.15 p.m. to. 6 p.m. for children aged 4 to 11 years living in Tideswell and the surrounding area at a cost of £5 per session. It is run by qualified staff and apart fro m prov iding a space to chill after the exertions of the school day, it offers a range of creative activit ies fro m baking to collage. In fact, the hard work that club co-ordinator Erif Williams and playworkers Gemma, Jackie, and Kath put in to ensuring the club is a safe, fun place fo r children, means that it is not uncommon for parents arriving early to be sent away by their adoring offspring and told to come back at the proper time. The popularity of the After school Club meant that earlier this year we were able to secure additional funding to start a Holiday Club for the same age group. This now runs from 8 am to 6 p.m. throughout the school holidays, co-ordinated by Gemma Facer. Children can attend for the whole day (at a cost of £15) or 1/2 day (£ 8) and it provides a , similar range of indoor and outdoor activities to the After school Club. It also has themed activit ies each week -'seaside', 'foods from around the world', 'English traditions' and has had visits from children’s theatre companies. This half term the child ren had a great ,day out at Haddon Hall and during the coming summer holidays it is hoped to run trips to the Magna Centre as part of the clubs 'Robot Week' as well as the Sealife and Chestnut Centres. The club is Ofsted inspected and has benefited fro m start up finance fro m the New Opportunities Fund. It is fortunate to be able to meet at Bishop Pursglove School though it is managed entirely separately by a voluntary management co mmittee. The club is now taking bookings for the summer holiday period and the next term, if you are interested in your child attending or want more in formation about the club then please contact ErifW illiams or Gemma Facer at the club (telephone 07792075486). Antoin Smith, Lower Terrace Rd., on behalf of the Tideswell After School Club Management Co mmittee


THE JUNGLE BOOK Plans are well in hand for this event. We have had meetings in church with the flower groups involved. Over the summer holidays, workshops are planned for young people and for adults, please phone Jennifer (871139) for details or look out for posters. If you are able to display a poster or leaflet at work or could help taking out leaflets to tourist attractions far and near (where are you going on holiday this year?!), please contact Jennifer or Brian (872266). Help will be needed during the actual week of the Festival, with stewarding the church and with refreshments (we will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day and we already have some coach parties booked in!)

The Star Inn 18 June 2003 Over recent weeks someone has been mounting a campaign against The Star Inn. This has included complaints to the police about noise; anonymous proformas to selected local residents on High Street encouraging them to co mplain to the police; a written co mplaint to the local Environmental Health Office and further co mplaints to the police when the pub placed seating on the unused land adjacent to the building. We question whether the individual (s) concerned have thought through or even care about the consequences of their actions. Apart fro m the stress caused by such harassment, if it continues they may find the owners, Angela and Glyn

If that happens, there is every chance. that another Tideswell pub will be gone forever Angela, Glyn, Carolyn and Tina have devoted a lot of time, energy and money into turning the Star into a successful pub offering good quality food and drink in a comfo rtable environ ment for people of all ages both villagers and visitors.

provide emp loyment for local people, support local businesses by buying produce locally and employing local tradesmen. Our customers often express their delight at the quality of the food and service provided at the Star and many return several times during their stay. All this would be lost if the Star closed. The pub has been there many years and we are told has had a much livelier past than what is being complained about now. We have spoken to a number of High St reet residents who have no complaints against the Star and indeed support it's continued prosperity.

Save the Star As a business in Tideswell it co mes with some surprise that anyone wishes to see The Star pub closed. Our guests in both bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation comment on the quality of food and drink and the welco me received in The Star. It is integral to the village that we maintain such services if we are to retain our appeal as a welco ming village. The importance of The Star should not be underestimated as the fewer facilities we have to offer v isitors the fewer v isitors we will receive We live 100 yards fro m The Star and have never had cause for comp laint. The pub is an essential part of any village co mmunity and it is important to retain such amen ities.

SOROPTIMIS T INTERNATONAL, BUXTON & DIS TRICT The Dinner at the Portland Hotel Buxton recently, was followed by a talk entitled "Nepal, First Impressions and Lasting M emories" by local writer and broadcaster Pete Hawkins. The talk was beautifully illustrated with slides taken over a period of time which showed the slight changes which have taken place in Nepal over the past few years. The people are warmhearted, generous and beautiful. Although they have few material possessions, they offer genuine friendship and hospitality, to visitors. Pete Hawkins' slides gave a glimpse of the world of these people, their everyday lives, and their religions, (mainly Buddhist or Hindu, or a hybrid of these two). He also had some breathtaking views to show of Everest and the surrounding Himalayan mountains. These contrasted with the picture of market stalls next to a rubbish tip which was being turned over by three domestic pigs. Everyone present was sorry when the talk came to a close. M embers were enchanted by his presentation, and he was thanked on behalf of the club, by Sara M orten.

The pub is now a friendly, welco ming meet ing place for all age groups. I am saddened that some people feel th is is wrong and the actions that they have taken in recent days/weeks is disappointing. We have already lost a number of pubs in Tideswell, two in recent years, is 'Tideswell' going to become another Eyam? Why does The Star get blamed for everything?

Our outdoor season is now in full flow and going very well. Since my last report we have played against our friends at Hallam Grange, Hathersage, Blue Circle, Sheffield British Legion and Baslow – (we won some of them). Especially pleasing was the first leg of ‘The Friendship Trophy’ at Old Whittington, Chesterfield in which we eventually triumphed after a very enjoyable match and a top quality tea. The return match will take place on Sunday 14th September home. Our new venture The Village Challenge proved a tremendous success. Ten teams from the various sections of our community took part, consisting of two ‘novices’ and two regular bowlers in each team. A really good time was had by all. The games were keenly contested but good fun and all were played in a good community spirit. The eventual victors by an extremely narrow margin were the ‘Tennis Club Tornadoes’ comprising of the father and son team of Tim and Michael Pepper and the two novices Nigel Willis (no relation to ‘The Fox’ he assures me) and yours truly. (All the other teams came second). The Bowling Club would like to thank Barry Landon for his superb organisation of the event and thanks to all participants, spectators, and especially the ladies who organised the refreshments. This will now be an annual event so watch this space. Our second ‘fun’ competition of the season ‘Pot Jack’ was won by yours truly. Now all my friends know how quiet and modest I am about my bowling ‘skills’????? so Barry suggested that I put that I won in spite of bowling badly. Runner up was that evergreen gentleman Horace ‘Tiger’ Wilshaw, who is having a great season since he started using Grecian 2000. The lovely Great, Great Grandma Sylvia Frost won the best single game score of 21. Well done to all participants. OPEN COMPETITION This will take place on Sunday 13th July commencing at 1.00 pm and all entries should be registered through Barry, either by adding your name to the list located on the veranda in the clubhouse or by ringing him on 871817. This is for any player, member or not, and all entries will be welcomed. Personality Profile This months personality is Don ‘Mat’ Payne, so called because he is renowned, nay famous, for forgetting to bring the mat to the other end when he’s bowled last. Don is considered to be one of our most fittest members because he walks further than anybody else in retrieving it. Born in Sheffield a long, long time ago Don has a daughter Jean who lives in Dore and a son Duncan who resides in Ilkeston. He has three grandchildren Melanie, Jonathan and Hannah and one Great Grandchild Olivia. Don worked in Sheffield as a Commercial Manager until his retirement. Between 1960 and 1966 he was a class A referee having officiated at many of the ‘big’ clubs such as Manchester United, Everton, Liverpool etc, (but not Barnsley for some strange reason only be known to himself!) Football was a very important part of his life having previously played representative football for the RAF both at home and abroad. One of his many happy memories of his ‘officiating’ days was refereeing a match between an England and West Ham, whose side contained a youthful Trevor Brooking. Don has lived in ‘Tidza’ for about 20 years and has been bowling for 16 years, having previously been a member at Calver. Apart from bowling Don is a very keen card player, in fact he runs our winter Wednesday games afternoon, which, from proceeds we have been able to purchase cushion covers, crockery etc. On conclusion, his only real problem is that he supports ‘Sheffield United’ Ah well! It takes all sorts. David Dyson Publicity Officer
