Emergency Committee to discuss markets and public toilets

The possible reopening of public toilets and the popular Bakewell stall market will be discussed by Derbyshire Dales District Council on 11 June.

The Emergency Committee “virtual” meeting will be broadcast live on the District Council’s YouTube channel.

The Prime Minister announced at the weekend that outdoor markets can reopen in an easing of Government coronavirus lockdown measures.

At the 11 June meeting, the Council, which is currently consulting with licensed stallholders, will present an amended market layout that takes into account coronavirus social distancing requirements.

Also on the agenda is an update on the 11 public toilets operated by the Council, which, during the lockdown to date, have remained closed. Risk assessments have been carried out and officers have made it clear that the facilities cannot be reopened until the safety of users and its own cleaning staff can be assured.

Public participation at meetings is currently suspended and members of the public are asked to read the reports first – available online from 4 June at – before submitting any questions.

After that date, questions can be submitted to the meeting no later than 12 noon on 10 June by email to, by post to Democratic Services, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Town Hall, Matlock DE4 3NN or by phone during working hours to 01629 761300.

The Leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council is asking would-be visitors to think twice before making a trip to one of the most beautiful regions in England.

The relaxation by the Government of coronavirus travel guidelines means many people who live both inside and outside the area may be contemplating a trip to the Dales’ visitor hotspots.

But the Council’s Leader Councillor Garry Purdy said: “While I totally understand the temptation to seek some respite from the constraints placed on all of us by the coronavirus crisis, my appeal to anyone considering a trip is not to focus so much on what you can now do but rather what you should do.

“Visiting the Dales right now will undoubtedly create tensions in our communities as well as placing pressure on our roads and emergency services, and, as a former police officer myself, I have a massive amount of sympathy for the policing job now facing the force.

“I am fortunate to represent an area of the Dales that includes Matlock Bath, which is a magnet for tourists at this time of year, but I am asking visitors to respect and protect the residents of Matlock Bath and all of the district’s many honeypot villages by staying away for now.

“We will welcome you back with open arms when this virus is properly under control – our leisure and tourism businesses, most of which continue to be closed, need your support in the long term. But, for now, please don’t put our already limited local services under unnecessary pressure.”

Hartington Cheese

Due to the lock down caused by the Corona Virus and the closure of Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, Shops, Food Fairs, Hartington Creamery based at Pikehall has lost over 80% of its sales. Many locals bought our cheese from Hartington Cheese Shop, which has  temporarily closed. We wish therefore, to make as many previous customers (and potential new customers) aware that we are as a food business still operating and our cheese can be bought locally at Tissington Butchers, or on-line through our website.
Any enquiries please ring 390308

Update: Now available at the shop/Sycamore

The foodbank collections on a Friday from the bus shelter has been cancelled until further notice. Many thanks to those who donated for your support and generosity. Parwich donated a total of 21 bags of groceries over a 3 week period (7 + 11 + 3) which will have been a great help to those in need of assistance.

You can still donate to the foodbank via various collection points in Ashbourne. These are at M&S, Sainsbury’s & Co-Op. Thank you. L.B.
