Crackly phone?

I have for some time being having trouble with my telephone line crackling, despite the Open Reach engineer having been out several times the problem persists.  I would just like to know if anyone else is having the same trouble and whether or not their is an inherent fault at the Exchange or whether it could be the copper wire system that runs to the exchange from this side of the village.       Terry P

Recycle your Christmas Tree

Free Christmas tree recycling in the Dales

From 9 January Derbyshire Dales District Council will be helping local people recycle their real Christmas trees.

All residents have to do is place the tree at the edge of their property on their usual green/recycling day collection and the tree will be composted along with other garden materials.

Any tree over 5ft in length must be broken/sawn down to a manageable size, with decorations and plant pots removed.  Alternatively, trees can be taken to the nearest household waste recycling centre.

Plain Christmas cards and wrapping paper can be included in residents’ kerbside cardboard and paper recycling to be collected by the District Council’s contractor Serco.  Foil-backed and glittery cards and paper should not be included, but placed in general household waste grey bins or black sacks.

W3Z Update

We recently received an update from W3Z reporting new areas covered by their relays. Relays are up and running in Biggin and at Rivendale that may provide new broadband options for the western side of our area hopefully including Alsop Moor and possibly Upper Moor.
Also they are holding a public meeting in Bradbourne in January about possible cover to the east of our area which may impact on Ballidon and White Meadows. The meeting is at 6.30pm on Wednesday 11th January at Bradboune Church Hall.

If you have any questions you can get W3Z’s contact details from their website see  their website here

Note, if you are getting downloads speeds of 2Mb/s or less via your landline you may be entitled to a grant from Digital Derbyshire towards the cost of alternative broadband sources.

Dales’ residents invited to participate in District Council’s autumn forums

 Local residents are being urged to take part in the next round of Area Community Forums to be staged across the Derbyshire Dales this autumn

 Hot topics up for discussion include a ‘You Said – We Did’ feedback session, a Good News briefing from Chief Executive Dorcas Bunton, an ‘Efficiencies’ workshop session, an update on recycling issues and a popular Questions & Answers session.

 Council Leader Councillor Lewis Rose OBE said: “These forums continue to be important to us in reaching out to local people and listening to what they have to say.

 It’s a great opportunity for local people to get involved and we would urge anyone who hasn’t attended a forum before to come along.”

 Residents can pick up some handy tips on how to recycle more and there’ll be an update on future waste and recycling issues.  There’ll also be an opportunity to take part in The Budget Game where participants will be asked how they would spend the Council’s money and whether they have any suggestions for savings.

 The Forums will take place at Wirksworth Memorial Hall on Tuesday 18th October, Parwich Village Hall on Tuesday 25th October and Eyam Church Centre on Tuesday 1st November.

 All start at 7 pm and anyone who can’t attend in person can email questions in advance to or via the District Council’s Facebook and Twitter pages @derbyshiredales.  The 1st November forum will also feature a live Twitter feed at

 A Question Time session will enable audience members to ask questions and make comments and suggestions to the various representatives.

 For further details or to be added to our mailing list ring 01629 761302 or email

Phone Mast Consultation

Thank you Jim for this reminder:

I would just like to make it clear that comments were invited by Pegasus, agents for Shared Access, in relation to the proposed mast application.

Comments are invited by Rachel Morrison, Planning Assistant, at the following email address:

Telephone comments were also invited on 01454 625 945

I would just like to make sure that any concerned residents of the village had this information to hand.

Pegasus have requested that comments are received by them by this coming Friday, 16/09/16 if possible, so that they can be taken into account during the design stage of the proposal. Whether such comments would help them amend their application to take into account any protests is not known by me at this moment.

The Blog Team added: This consultation is on behalf of the mobile phone company, and any proposed mast would need to be agreed by the landowner, and then go through the normal Peak Park planning procedure. Our Parish Council are sharing information promptly on this and [Ammended 12/9/16“Once all the information is available an open session will also be set up in the Memorial Hall. Residents will be able to see the same information as the councillors. Councillors will be present so that residents can share their own views with them.”.
