Congratulations to Sir Richard, who has been re-elected as our Councillor here in the Dovedale and Parwich ward of Derbyshire Dales District Council

The results were

  • Sandra Fearn (Liberal Democrats) 78 votes
  • Sir Richard FitzHerbert (Conservative) 424 votes
  • Sue Hodgson (Labour) 73 votes

The turn out was low, just under 44%. The Conservatives look set to retain control of the Council, though with a much reduced majority. See the District Council website for the full results.

Volunteers for CHICKS


CHICKS Children’s Charity offers much-needed respite breaks to disadvantaged children aged 8-15 from around the UK.

Our Daleside Retreat in Fenny Bentley is looking for volunteers to help support the work that we do.

There are plenty of different ways in which you could get involved – maybe fundraising or hosting a coffee morning, helping with crafts at events,
manning a CHICKS stand in Ashbourne, taking our collection tins out or even helping us with the garden.

This year we have plenty of exciting events planned including Tissington Well Dressings and The Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials

You can volunteer for as much or as little time as you like – we are very flexible and do understand that it needs to fit round your existing

It’s a great opportunity to learn some new skills, meet new people within the community and become part of the larger CHICKS family.
If you would like to learn a bit more about volunteering for CHICKS please call Karen Robinson on 01335 350 525 or email:
