Butterfly Reserve Open Day

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).

Success for Derbyshire Alert

police

Police have thanked the public for their help after their pleas for information led to the arrest of two suspects.

A rural crime alert was sent to residents about a white van seen in the Brassington area which was believed to have been involved in the theft of a quantity of lead from a farm. (This was posted on Parwich.Org on 19 May)

Following the appeal, members of the public came forward with information confirming the identity of van and descriptions of the suspected offenders. Police arrested two suspects within minutes of the message going out.

Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa was responsible for reinstating the Alert messaging system after his election last year.

He said: “This latest success shows how important the Derbyshire Alert system is to gather intelligence and ultimately detect crime.

“I would like to thank the public for their continuing response to the information appeals we issue. Thousands of people have registered with the site since the end of September and the facility is already proving its weight in gold as a crime prevention service.”

One of those who came forward with information that led to the arrest, congratulated the team saying: “Well done, it’s very satisfying to know the system is working for us all.”
