Please note there may be parking problems in Ashbourne today as a number of caravans moved onto the Shaw Croft Car Park last night. (See report on the Ashbourne Telegraph website.)

It is not known how long the situation will continue. Alternative parking includes the Market Place, the overflow field by the Fire Station, the Leisure Cetre car park, the ‘bus station’ and Sainsbury’s car park. Do let other readers know when this is resolved by adding a comment to this post.

Update – 12 midday Friday 15th July

Re. Traveller encampment, Shawcroft car park, Ashbourne

Derbyshire Dales District Council owns and operates this car park, and a spokesperson said:

We have visited the encampment, which appears to comprise a number of connected families all of whom are apparently Irish Travellers. While their representatives have informed us they intend to move on by Monday at the latest, we have in any case instigated an immediate court order process to remove them and in the meantime are constrained by the law. We will however be monitoring the site closely.

CULLAND IN COLOUR

Although outside our area, readers my be interested in this event, that raises money for a service we benefit from, the Mid Derbyshire Association for Mobile Physiotherapy.

CULLAND HALL OPEN GARDENS AND SPECIALIST PLANT FAIR
SUNDAY 12TH JUNE 2016, 11am – 4pm.

It was twenty years ago that the owners of Culland Hall embarked on creating a memorable garden at their home. Years of dedication have come to fruition to produce an exquisitively painted corner of Derbyshire….walled water gardens edged with cool white allium….hot reds and vibrant oranges ignite the kitchen garden, an old fashioned potager bursting with fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, a woodland walk with an autumnal palette of burnt sienna and ochre, painterley coloured double borders (more…)

Cyclists Survey

Call for cyclists to reveal their cycling habits in the Peak District National Park

Information is being gathered on the use of the following cycling routes that have been created through the Pedal Peak Phase II project:

• The Little Don Link – between Sheffield and the Trans Pennine Trail, via Stocksbridge and Langsett.

• The Staffordshire Moorlands Link – between Stoke and Leek via the Caldon Canal.

• The White Peak Loop – linking the Monsal Trail with Matlock, and the High Peak Trail with Buxton.

• The Hope Valley Link – linking Hathersage to Bamford.

The online survey opens on Monday October 12 and will be available until Monday November 23
www.surveymonkey.com/r/PedalPeakII

Tim Nicholson, Peak District National Park transport policy officer, said: “We are interested in finding out how the project has affected cycling in and around the Peak District and would like cyclists to help us by completing the survey which asks about where and how they cycle in the area.

“This information will help us plan where more new routes could be introduced and will help provide evidence when we come to apply for funding for them.”

The survey results will form part of an evaluation report to be submitted to the Department for Transport in March 2016 on the success of the Pedal Peak II Project.

The Pedal Peak Phase II project won funding from the Department for Transport in 2013 to improve facilities for cyclists in and around the National Park. The project partners are the Peak District National Park, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Derbyshire County Council, Sheffield City Council and Staffordshire County Council.

I’ve been going to cobraFit for almost a year now and feel fitter, healthier and in better shape than I’ve ever done. CobraFit is suitable for both men & women and covers a wide range of ages. The eldest person being 71!

If you’re interested why not try a ‘taster’? Contact Alison for more details – quoting the Parwich website.
