The group hadn’t really anticipated good weather in January but we were so lucky. Though the temperature was low the warmth of the sun on our faces was wonderful as we enjoyed the first coffee stop en route to Longstone Edge, as indeed it was later when we had lunch at the top. There was […]

January 23, 2013

I would like to record my thanks to all those members of The Mothers’ Union, Tideswell Artability and the young Apprentices who worked so hard to complete twenty two model cribs (called Szopka) for the Christmas display in our Parish Church. The finished models helped to add the colour and sparkle that is always associated […]

I now collect my granddaughter from Pre-school’s wonderful new premises. I know that I can only begin to imagine the hard work and generosity that has made the move possible, but I would like to thank anyone who contributed their time and money.

We had our second annual Village Voice ‘staff’ party in mid January. It was a splendid affair with around 20 of the estimated 30 folk who are involved in one capacity or other with getting the Village Voice from the computer out to you. I do occasionally get phone calls from residents asking where their […]

BIN-O-PHOBIA

January 2, 2013

It happened one fine Monday,
On alighting from the bus
I heard a low pitched rumble
And asked, what was the fuss?
Then I spied blue Iidded wheelies
Lined up row on row,

A futuristic garden gnome.
Now our […]

Steve’s career on the water began at Matlock Canoeing Club, but he turned to White Water Rafting two years ago and in 2011 was in the GB Junior Squad at the World Championships in Costa […]
