There’s a new Gruffalo trail now up and ready to follow, and it’s aimed at the younger members of our lovely village.

It begins with two sheets on the park near the play equipment, then two on the Green, with the remaining two hiding in the Pump Hill Garden.

There’s a printable check sheet and also the answers below should you need them.

Happy Gruffalo spotting!

A 1.4 mile section of the Tissington Trail we be closed temporarily from 7 December 2018, to allow surfacing and improvement works to take place.

The Peak District National Park Authority confirmed the section involved will run from the Thorpe Car Park, and end at Spend Lane Bridge. Works are expected to be completed by the end of February 2019.

The closure will see re-surfacing – including the use of 100% recycled, WRAP (Waste Protocols Project) approved aggregates, a widening of the route to support its multi-user status, and associated ditch and drainage works. The temporary closure will also allow tree safety management to take place.

I’ve seen this pair wandering round the village since Monday and they have just been spotted trying to get to the veg in my garden.  I suggest the owner rounds them up because if they’re try it again, they’re likely to be joining it on my plate!

Thank you

Thanks to DDDC for the following information:

For the 10th year in a row, Derbyshire Dales District Council is encouraging people to ‘shop local’ this Christmas by introducing free parking across the district from 1st December.
The free parking from 2pm throughout December comes on top of residents’ parking concessions that allow local people to park free every day of the year up to 11am and after 4pm.
This means Dales residents have free parking for 21 hours each day over the festive period, which helps local people and local traders.
Free parking extends to midnight each day and motorists are reminded not to leave anything valuable in their vehicles as the lead up to Christmas can also be a choice time for thieves.

Hoe Grange Quarry

The first Open Day for Derbyshire’s first Butterfly Reserve has been organised for Sunday the 23rd of July from 11 am to 3 pm. 

Members of Butterfly Conservation East Midlands, including Ray Walker (Hon Warden), Derek Brownlee (Hon Assistant Warden) together with Pat and Ken Orpe will be able to show visitors around this abandoned limestone quarry where already 24 species of butterflies have been recorded including Dark Green Fritillary and the Peak District version of the Brown Argus. It will also be possible to see the work that many volunteers have done to enhance the habitat so as to increase the biodiversity at the site. 

Directions. From the cross road in the centre of Longcliffe village, proceed in a north westerly direction towards Slipper Low Farm and just after the brow of the first hill, take the first left, just before a bungalow, and then proceed down a limestone track and park by the entrance gates to the Nature Reserve at the end of the track (SK222562).
