Thirty years of care
Blythe House Hospicecare is celebrating 30 years of providing end-of-life care across the Peaks and Dales. A team of 60 staff and an army of over 300 volunteers carry out the free services, with nearly £1 million from fundraising and its shops helping to make it possible over the last 12 months.
Busy outdoors
Peak District National Park Authority organises many outdoor events and activities within easy reach of Tideswell and its neighbours. This month's schedule starts with a practical field session to identify and handle small mammals, finishing with a Halloween-themed craft and nature day at Castleton.
Historic project underway
Work has started on a £320,000 restoration of the historic railway goods station at Millers Dale. It will become an interpretation facility for visitors, telling of the shed's working past and pointing to nearby attractions.
Championing wildlife ideas
A newly-completed local survey of sightings of hedgehogs, owls and swifts by the Tideswell & District Environment Group has resulted in the publishing of a set of ideas to help make people more aware and bring about improvements for wildlife generally.
Snow call
Volunteers are being invited to get ready for snow clearing from roads and pavements this winter. Derbyshire County Council wants to hear from residents and farmers willing to join its Snow Warden scheme.
