Spring Fashion & Weddings.jpg

Two pages full of inspriation for that all important big day.


On the 20th April, the Matlock Branch of the Grenadier Guards’ Association had their spring lunch at the Bakewell Golf Club. A group of members and friends had a wonderful meal, thanks to Justine and Tim and their helpers.
    Everyone sang “Happy Birthday” for the Queen’s 90th.
    Fifteen raffle prizes were all won and a total of £200 has been sent to the Colonel’s Fund for the Wounded in Action.
    A big thank you to H’s Wine Bar, The Rutland Arms, Bamboo Beauty and Tiroler Stuberl Ltd for their donations for the raffle and prizes from members.

article2.jpgUnusually, this time the comedy Baslow Players has in mind, “Crazy Horses” by Mark Norman, does not require the male actors to don ladies' underwear.  I repeat, does not require males actors to don ladies' underwear.  We appreciate that this might disappoint both potential actors and potential audience but it is a risk Baslow Players are prepared to take.  Unfortunately, it might require ladies to don male clothing and act male roles if we don't find some suitable men.  Wonderful parts on offer:  God, Death, Satan. All that and (relatively) normal clothes . . . How can you refuse?  The Crazy Horses are the four horsepeople (three horsemen, and one horsewoman) of The Apocalypse (not to be confused with the Acropolis).
    We've booked Baslow Village Hall for Fri 30 Sep and Sat 1 Oct 2016.  Watch this space and posters for when tickets go on sale . . .  but we really do need to find our cast first!  Please pass this onto anyone who might be interested and encourage them to ring Zoe on 07812 440530 or email to find out more.  Rehearsals are likely to be weekday evenings, possibly Thursdays at someone's house,  STARTING SOON, so don't delay inn making contact!
    We think it is a great script, very funny and we have already agreed to donate all profits to Helen's Trust, so let's make it a go-er and a great evening for lots of people for lots of reasons!
    Plans are already afoot for Baslow's pantomime next year with the 'Goldilocks and the Dot Dot Dot' script writing making page progress day by day. Diarise now for Tues 21 Feb - Sat 25 February 2017. Contact Zoe for more details of auditions and rehearsals (Thursdays from September, and occasional Sunday afternoons too).  In the meantime, feast your eyes on some photos from our February pantomime 'The Panto Adventures of Master Toad', which we felt was so successful that we are doing what we can to get a DVD copy of it in Bakewell Library.  Watch this space for more news on that.  More photos to view at

article3.jpg1000’s of people braved the weather to attend the formal relaunch of Buxton Market and see the Mayor and Mayoress cut the ribbon and praise the traders and market team.
    There was a wide selection of produce on sale, from the traditional fruit and veg, fish and meat to handmade scented candles, leather handbags and brightly coloured Yak’s wool throws.
    By 2pm three stalls, including a fully stocked double stall of fruit & veg had completely sold out of stock!  Louise Louix who bakes mouth-watering cakes was amazed at the turnout and has booked to come back every week. “I wish I’d baked more. I never thought it would be this busy”. Brocklesby Pies also sold out of their high quality pies and were over the moon with the number of customers, especially taking into consideration the decidedly poor weather.
Visitors to the market commented on what a lovely atmosphere there was and especially enjoyed the music provided by swing trio ‘The Sette of Odde Volumes’
    Two clowns from Storybag Theatre were also spotted fooling around in the Market and brought a smile to old and young alike.
    Peter Lomas, Assistant Market Manager, says We’re off to a great start but have plenty of room to expand and are looking for quality traditional traders”. 
Over 250 people entered the prize draw to win £100 worth of Market goods and the lucky winner, Jeanette Smith, a local Buxton lady was completely thrilled to win the prize. “I never expected to win it. It’s so lovely. You hear of people winning free draws but I’ve never been lucky before”. John Estruch, Director of Buxton Markets CIC and Lindsay Fieldhouse, Buxton Market’s Manager, delivered the prize to the delighted lady at the end of the day once all the stalls had been safely stored away.
    “The Market continues every Tuesday and Saturday from 9am to 4pm on the Market Place of the highest Market Town in England, Buxton!”

It’s not exactly difficult to find a ‘big sky’ view in our fabulous Peak District. Simply head for any Edge or hilltop and just look out or around. However, finding a watery vista in landlocked Derbyshire is not so easy and we have to make do with man-made.
