Two great trips

Wednesday 25th May – RHS Harlow Carr – departure 9am

Harlow Carr is the Royal Horticultural Society’s northern garden. Rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias should be a highlight at this time of year. As well as the extensive gardens there is a shop and plant centre and Betty’s Café tea rooms.

We can offer this trip to society members at the bargain price of £8! Entry is free, as the society is affiliated to the RHS. There will be an additional charge of £2 for those wishing to have a tour. Non members can either join the society at a cost of £2 or pay the entry fee of £7.50 ( free to RHS members).

Wednesday 13th July – Felley Priory and Hebb’s Farmhouse – departure 9.30am

In the morning we will visit Felley Priory Gardens in Nottinghamshire (left) a private garden and plant nursery. We will have lunch there and then there is a short drive to Hebb’s farmhouse, Stuart Dixon’s garden. Stuart gave a talk to the society in 2009 and he will show us round his garden; followed by tea and scones.

The cost for this trip is £10, it includes tea and scones at Hebb’s Farmhouse and and entry to both gardens. If however you are an RHS member, entry into Felley Priory is free and the total cost of the trip will be reduced to £7.00.

In order to keep transport costs to a minimum, from April 1st these trips will be opened to non society members. Please can members pay their £5 deposit by Thursday 31st March to secure a place.

Please let Rebecca Jordan, Knob Hall, have your payments. These details and forms have been delivered to all society members.

Film night: Friday April 15th

From the director of Calendar Girls comes a new comedy-drama with an all-star British cast.

The film stars the award winning Sally Hawkins as Rita O’Grady, who is the catalyst for the 1968 Ford Dagenham strike by 187 sewing machinists which led to the advent of the Equal Pay Act. Working in extremely impoverished conditions and for long arduous hours, the women at the Ford Dagenham plant finally lay down their tools when they are reclassified as “unskilled”.

With humour, common sense and courage they take on their corporate paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself. The leader of the women’s struggle is fast-talking, no nonsense Rita, whose fiery temper and occasionally hilarious unpredictability proves to be a match for any of her male opponents, and is echoed by Barbara Castle’s struggle in the male-dominated House of Commons.

The film stars a host of Britain’s finest acting talent, including Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky, It’s A Wonderful Afterlife), Bob Hoskins (The Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa), Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), and Rosamund Pike (Pride & Prejudice, An Education).

Dear resident,

We have recently introduced a new e-forum (email forum) to the Community Messaging Service, which will give you the chance to contribute to the setting of priorities in your neighbourhood.

As you may be aware, each of our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams hold a meeting every three months to set priorities, offering residents the chance to select what their local police officers and other agencies target.

The aim of our e-forum is to make it easier for you to have a say on priorities.

Simply email and tell us what you would like your team to target.

Your concerns will be sent to the Tissington Area Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and they will discuss all responses at their next forum meeting which will be held on:

Wednesday 6th April at 7.30pm at St. Edmunds Church, Fenny Bentley. (more…)
