Bakewell in Bloom is delighted to announce that this year we achieved the coveted GOLD standard in the Britain in Bloom regional competitions.
    The judging took place in July, the tour beginning at the Medway Centre, followed by the Infants School, where the judges admired the wonderful outdoor learning space. We then travelled by community bus to visit further sites, including Monyash Road Allotments, followed by a walk around the town, finishing at the Town Hall.
    The judges commented on the strength of partnership working in Bakewell, including, for example, how Bakewell in Bloom has worked successfully with Derbyshire Dales District Council, Bakewell Town Council, The Peak District National Park Authority, the Haddon Estate and many others to improve and enhance the quality of the environment. They were delighted to see the on-going restoration of Riverside Gardens including sculpture; Bath Gardens; planted troughs and containers; hanging baskets; and the allotments. They were also impressed by the general cleanliness of the town.
    We wish to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who have supported the work of Bakewell in Bloom. Particular thanks go to Derbyshire Dales District Council Green and Clean team for green-space maintenance and planting, and for keeping the streets, seats and bins clean. Thank you also to the Town Council for their support for new initiatives, the shops for displaying our logo and for taking part in the various shop-window special displays, the pubs and various businesses who have contributed this year and in the past. We appreciate the work of the Peak Park Authority and landowners responsible for conservation of the surrounding countryside, woodlands and river.
    This summer, Bakewell in Bloom has awarded certificates for local competitions to the following businesses:
    Best Business Premises: ‘Lace’, for delightful planting over the years.
    Best Outdoor Pub Area: ‘The Queens Arms’ for an attractive, clean, well planted space.
    Best Shop Window Display: ‘Bird Song’ and ‘Elliott Rose Apothecary’ for again creating delightful, on-theme displays.
    Thank you to all businesses who took part.
    At the regional competitions, Bakewell in Bloom also received a special Judge’s Award for Bakewell Gardening Association’s Monyash Road Allotments, giving particular recognition to the on-going site development and the community involvement.
    Bakewell in Bloom next meeting takes place October 21st. If you would like to get involved please do contact us.  01629 810183 or 01629 815123.

article2.jpgThe Farming Life Centre, in conjunction with British Red Cross, is hosting a First Aid Training Session for farmers and their families on Monday 26 October from 6-9 pm.
    The Centre’s Farm Business Development Officer, Jonathan Charlesworth said: “There’s a lot in the news nowadays about how dangerous farming can be.  We’re often working alone with hazardous machinery, chemicals and livestock, which makes us vulnerable, particularly if something goes wrong and help is not nearby.”
    Family members including children can be exposed to risks.  In the last ten years, almost one person a week has been killed as a direct result of agricultural work. Many more have been seriously injured or made ill by their work.
    The training session is free of charge and will be held at The Farming Life Centre, Blackwell Hall Farm, Blackwell, Buxton.  It will cover risk minimisation along with a practical first aid.
    To book a place contact The Farming Life Centre on 01298 85162 or call Jonathan Charlesworth on 07410 550616 / email  More information is available on the Centre’s website:, Facebook page and on Twitter @FarmingLC.

Continuing her run of walks around the far reaches of the Peak District, Sally set off for Hardwick Hall, ’more glass than wall’, the majestic hilltop home created by Bess of Hardwick to show off her wealth and power after abandoning Chatsworth to escape from her fourth husband George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury and a relationship that had turned sour to the point of vitriolic.
