News of Ballidon Church

Dear all

I’m delighted to say that the church at Ballidon has now been saved and repaired by a tiny charity called the Friends of Friendless Churches. We own nearly 50 churches which we have saved from demolition and decay, and there is now a page on our website about All Saints Ballidon:

Please do get in touch if you want to help at the church as a keyholder or to keep an eye on it for us – we are a very small charity relying on local people to help us look after these important buildings. And we need local contacts at Ballidon.

We also welcome new members – so if you are no longer local but want to support us, please consider joining us as a member!

Best wishes
Caroline Welch, Web Manager at Friends of Friendless Churches .

Diary Updates Please

We will be updating the Diary page this weekend, so if you have any Alsop, Ballidon, Parwich or Pikehall events (July, August and September) that you want to go in the Diary in time to be included in the Peak Five Church Magazine’s July/August issue please send them in by Sunday (24th of June). Note, there is no separate August issue.

Including our Diary in the Church magazine is important as it helps you reach some of those who are not on-line.

Please send Diary information to or leave me a message on tel. 287.

Thank you, Peter

Road Blocked Bradbourne Mill

6 pm

Just to let everyone know, someone has rolled a car at Bradbourne Mill and blocked the road, I would imagine emergency services will be closing the road any time so best avoided.
The driver was fairly unscathed ( lucky man)!!!
