Christmas 08.jpg

A massive eighteen pages featuring Matlock and Bakewell during the Christmas period ~ What's on, where to go and of course, some fantastic shopping.

Just under 100 people attended a Race Night which has raised £1000 for 3 local charities. Organised by Buxton and High Peak Golf Club and in conjunction with High Peak Radio, Captain Andrew Scowen, Lady Captain Janet Gill and Scott Wanless have now pledged to make this an annual event in aid of Challenge Derbyshire. Scott commented: “We are very grateful to Woods Plant Hire who were our main sponsors and also to all the local companies who sponsored races. This meant that we raised even more for this very worthy campaign.”
    The ‘Challenge Derbyshire’ campaign was launched by Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice and Helen’s Trust in order to raise much needed funds to support patients with any life-limiting illness across North Derbyshire. Speaking on behalf of Challenge Derbyshire, Lucy Marsden, Fundraising & Communications Manager at Blythe House Hospice said, ‘We are very grateful to everyone who was involved with the Race Night. Having a diagnosis of cancer or any serious or life-limiting illness is a real challenge for the person and their family. The services provided by Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice and Helen’s Trust are free to use, but not free to provide, so we need your help to continue our vital services and to support these people within the community.”

article2.jpgThe ownership of Tansley Community Hall is to be transferred to the local parish council for just £1.
    The 128-year-old building in the village’s Church Street has been owned by Derbyshire Dales District Council and its predecessor authority Matlock Urban District Council for more than 90 years.
    Despite being valued at around £150,000, the building, originally a Liberal Club, will be given to Tansley Parish Council after the District Council’s Governance & Resources Committee accepted on Thursday a business plan – prepared with the help of Rural Action Derbyshire – for a group of villagers to operate the hall on the Parish Council’s behalf “to its full potential” for community use.
    Used down the years as a youth club and for recreational activities including billiards and snooker, the hall is currently operated by a village management committee and booked on a regular basis by the Brownies, a mother and toddler group, a sewing group, for exercise and yoga classes and as a rehearsal space by two local theatre groups.
    The Parish Council hold their monthly council meetings in the hall and had previously contested the building’s ownership because a previous incarnation of the council had taken over the running of the hall in 1906 for use as public offices until the council’s abolition in 1924.
    It’s the end of a long-running negotiation between the district and parish councils. Back in 2012 the district, which has always leased the hall to village groups at a peppercorn rent, offered the parish a 25-year lease at just £1 a year, but the parish refused to sign until a number of condition surveys were undertaken at the district’s cost.
    Asbestos, energy, building and roof surveys have all been carried out subsequently, with no significant issues being identified.
    Thursday’s meeting heard that the new business plan opened the door for the District Council to hand over the freehold of the building in its current good condition.

printanddesign.jpgarticle3.jpgCOBWEB PUTS WINDMILL TO SLEEP FOR WINTER
Heage Windmill’s season came to a close on Sat 31st October when a good group of friends and visitors carefully constructed what has now become something of a tradition at the windmill – they made a huge spider’s web, under the careful instruction of our ‘web master’ for the day, Lynn Allen and her assistant, Jack Evans. Using ‘knicker elastic’ they slowly wove the cobweb and then placed it safely by the mill.
    The mill is now closed for the season and will reopen on Good Friday, next year. In the meantime, as first stage to the repair of the wet rot, the six sails will be removed in the next couple of weeks. They will be refurbished by volunteers and work by a millwright should commence shortly afterwards, aiming to have the 200-year-old machine back in full working order for the re-opening next year. Funding is still needed for this work and any donations can be made via our website

Referring to The Great Ridge in her last walk and seeing from afar that impressive line-up of Tors and high summits, Sally was fuelled with a desire to return to the area and fired up for a proper hike that would test her stamina and give her leg muscles a work-out.
