DARLEY DALE/ONZAIN TWINNING ASSOCIATION
Now It’s Our Turn
On the weekend of 23/24 May, the Darley Dale Twinning Association will be hosting the English celebration of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the twinning agreement between the towns of Darley Dale and Onzain. Last year we enjoyed the hospitality of the French town and now we are reciprocating with our own version. Different from previous years, we should like to invite anyone from the area to come and share the events taking place in Whitworth Park on Sunday 24 May. We are keen to show how much fun we have with our French “Twinners” and let people get a feel for the wonderful friendships that have developed over the years. For your entertainment, from 2.15pm., there will be La Valcissienne (traditional French dancers), Winster Morris Dancers, La Renaissance (Onzain’s town band), croquet and, for good measure, the Whitworth Centre has an open exhibition of work by local artisans. The café is also open as usual for refreshments.
If you would like to know more about the Twinning Association, have a look at our website www.darley daletwinning.org.uk – we welcome new members at any time.
WELCOME TO THE LUMSDALE GARDEN PARTY
The attractive garden of Ivy Cottage (opposite Highfields, Upper School, Matlock) will once again be the venue for a garden party in aid of the beautiful Lumsdale Valley.
The Lumsdale Garden Party will take place 1pm-5pm on Saturday 30th May. There will be a variety of stalls to browse and buy from, including bric-a-brac, homemade cakes, plants, books, and a vintage stall. And for the first time ever, the new Lumsdale Tablecloth will be available to buy. Alongside these attractions there will be the chance to buy a cream tea whilst being serenaded by song!
This year we are also hoping to collect stories from people who know the valley well, so if you have any old photos or tales to tell then we would love you to come along and share them with us. This is all part of the Explore Lumsdale Project, as we seek to find out more about the history of this amazing place. We are now in the last stages of this project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund; work has included the restoration of the middle and lower ponds and the installation of dipping platforms for local schools to use. Whilst you are visiting the Garden Party take a walk through the valley to see what has been achieved in the last year.
The nearby valley with its industrial heritage of wheel pits, old mills and ponds comes under the auspices of the Arkwright Society, with its day-to-day maintenance managed by a small group of local people – the Lumsdale Project Committee. The valley is silent now except for the sound of birds and the fall of water, as the Bentley Brook cascades over what was once an old quarry edge. Nature has turned what was a hive of industry into a place of enchantment, with ivy clad ruins and intriguing artefacts nestling amongst the trees, which grow between.
The valley today provides both a glimpse into the past and a leisure facility for local people and visitors. The Garden Party will raise funds to help the committee of volunteers to carry on its work in order to preserve and maintain the valley.
Julian Burgess, Chairman of the Lumsdale Committee of Volunteers, said, ‘Last year the event raised nearly £2,000 for Lumsdale and it would be wonderful to exceed this. We welcome everyone to come and celebrate all of the work that has happened in the last year and help us to raise funds to continue to care for the Lumsdale Valley.’

“THANK EWE” FOR THERAPEUTIC CUDDLY LAMB VISITS
Spring lambs are being taken into Newholme Hospital in Bakewell to provide a therapeutic benefit for elderly patients.
The cuddly springtime visitors are wowing patients and healthcare staff alike, thanks to Chelmorton farmers David and Joanne Bagshaw.
For the past eight years their lambs have been visiting Newholme and providing animal assisted therapy to patients across the hospital.
This year they have visited Rowsley Ward, Stanton Day Hospital and are regular visitors to Riverside Ward, an older people’s mental health assessment ward.
Lorraine Turner, occupational therapist on Riverside Ward, said: “We want to say a big thank you to David and Joanne. For patients experiencing dementia the visits are very therapeutic and open up meaningful interaction by holding and talking to the lambs.
“We have witnessed some very moving and meaningful connections which the occupational therapy team have captured by providing families with memorable photographs.
“The visiting lambs provide a host of therapeutic benefits but it is the expression of such positive social behaviour that includes the spontaneous smiles and laughter that are the most memorable.”
MY FAVOURITE WALKS - Ashford-in-the-Water
by Sally Mosley
For this issue Sally stayed closer to home and headed off to the pretty village of Ashford.
After a week of heavy showers the River Wye looked like gravy as it poured beneath the low arches of the sheep wash bridge. Spring flowers have burst into bloom, Decorating all the cottage gardens in a riot of colour, whilst new leaves make trees and bushes look bright and fresh.
