We had our first film screening in June and nearly 100 people attended.  Which was brilliant.

CHESTERFIELD 750 COMMEMORATED


Chesterfield Parish Church
A commemorative stone marking the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Chesterfield was dedicated outside Chesterfield Parish Church this morning.
The Battle of Chesterfield was fought during the Second Barons' War- a three-year civil war between the forces of a number of barons, led by Simon de Montfort, against Royalist forces led by Prince Edward (later Edward I of England), in the name of Henry III.
The memorial was organised by Chesterfield 750.
Along with the dedication of the stone, a refurbished gas light was blessed. The lamp was manufactured in 1824 and originally stood in the market square. It was relocated to the churchyard in the 1970s and has been recently converted to house LEDs.

INVITATION TO WALKERS

Dear friends,
 
Central Methodist Church has been rambling on first Saturdays in the month for ages.     Next month I offer an ecumenical invitation.

I am leading the walk on Saturday August 5th, which is on Froggatt, Curbar and White Edges and, if desired, with a loop into Longshaw.  There are 3 options – 3, 6 or 9 miles, all beginning at Hay Wood NT carpark (not far from the Grouse Inn on the A625), with the short walk finishing at Curbar Gap, the 6-miler coming back to Hay Wood and the 9 miler also.

We meet in the carpark of Central Methodists at 9.15, or at 9.45 in Hay Wood carpark, where there is a charge for non-NT members.  Anyone walking only to Curbar Gap will need transport home from there.   BYO coffee pause at Curbar Gap.  BYO lunch near the Grouse.  Ice cream at Longshaw.

Want to come?  Want more details?   Ring 270936 or email jpking@uwclub.net
