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.

Moving In and Moving Out

Hello Everyone,
As most of you already know Brian and I are about to move across the village out of Blanche Meadow Farm to Lower Monsdale House ( formerly Stubley) on Creamery Lane. We hope you will welcome Marie Rippingale and Francis Boyer to the home we have loved and cherished for nearly 40 years. They are looking forward to village life and I have really sold it to them as a lovely friendly village .
Meanwhile Brian and I are finally looking forward to retirement- a bit of bowls, drinking in the pub and Legion , no gardening, until the planning permission comes through and we start on the building work!

Brian and Patti Beasley

  • 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

IMG_1429

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
Commitments.

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: community@chicks.org.uk

100 Mile Ride

Hello, as I’m sure you know I’m quite a cycling addict, yes, a proper MAMIL (Middle Aged Man in Lycra). One of the biggest events for cyclists in this country is the Prudential Ride London 100, which is, yes you guessed it, a 100 mile ride around London and Surrey; well I’ve entered this event, the cyclists version of doing a marathon……

Now the ask – recently a very dear friend of mine has passed away due to Motor Neurone Disease.   I want to do something; so I’m doing the above ride on behalf of the MND Association.  I hope to raise loads of funds to help with their work in helping patients, and research into finding a cure for this horrid disease.
So a big please – please be generous, help me to help this worthy cause.

Finally, I am standing all my costs, and have started the ball rolling with £100 donation myself.  If you would like to make a donation, my daughter and I have set up a Just Giving page.   https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/robertandcatherine
Big love to you all, thanks for reading this.
