I'm not really sure what's going on with the buses through our village.
I have seen a bus to Ashover/ Matlock and during the last week one which said Clay Cross/ Alfreton.

These are routes alien to our village - I 'think' they were Hulley's rather than Stage Coach which come through frequently on a daily basis

It's a four part series so they may move around the area

I think you should take on a pub WCT, serve good Ales and Food.
We can come there for our Christmas Meet Up.
Mates rates of course  ::)

For some reason hanging seems the popular way to end a life these days and I can't think why as if it's not done correctly it must be a pretty horrible death!
I reckon the fight has been knocked out of many of our younger generation.

Wasnt there a big thing about this a while back and no one should be parking there not even blue badge users?

Sorry...this has appeared on the Derbyshire Times site yesterday :-
http://www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk/news/grassroots/part-of-chesterfield-town-centre-could-become-restricted-parking-zone-1-7715297

Appears blue badge users can but as normal with a lot of them they just dump the car anywhere and  be done with it!

Not sure if it's been raised before bransoj and thanks for the link which I hadn't seen.

We parked on Rose Hill in the car park - Blue Badge bay and there were plenty of spaces for Blue Badge users!
Some just don't want to pay and yes you are quite right some also think they have a right to park anywhere -

I can't say if they were Blue Badge users though as I didn't look.
It just looked like a car park on that street!

Things have moved steadily on with this and I found the company I insured daughters laptop with very friendly and easy to talk to.

I told them what had happened - and they were really helpful.

The result is that it was collected on Tuesday to be looked at, and is to be delivered back to us on Saturday - repaired!   :)

Chesterfield Discussion / High Street Chesterfield
« on: February 04, 2016, 03:56:15 PM »
Today was the first time I have been into Chesterfield since before Christmas.

When we got to high Street - top side of the Market Hall it was like a car park with vehicles parked each side, in fact it looked busier than the Rose Hill car park where I had parked.

I think Blue Badge users have maybe always been able to park there - but this was too much -

I suspect bus/taxi/train staff are used to this and hope trained accordingly on the way to deal with it. Some times it is better to ignore a loud mouth drunk who may be wanting an argument. Pee on their fire so to speak!

The answer to this problem on Beetwell street again moving them on repeatedly if their were the staffing of Police or Community Officers.

Other than that regulate the sale of booze - we all are given tokens to spend on booze each month - when it's gone - tough no more. That won't happen though will it

Actually I think more support given to those who are abusing drink/drugs is needed - ----

What a shame I had hope that the Chesterfield hotel would be transformed into a place for vulnerable people to go. I never was sure exactly what this would be but was a least hopeful it would be kept going.
Hopefully someone else will come along and take over the venture planned.

Funding as you say has been slashed dramatically in many areas and yes it hits the most vulnerable.
Some of those sleeping rough will be 'users' who are in a circle of drugs/booze with little help for those who want to get out of their addiction.

The mental health situation is the same, I have supported for TWO YEARS someone who has M.H. problems and desperately WANTS to be helped - only there isn't enough funding to continue with counselling. We go around in circles. There 'may' be a light at the end of this persons tunnel - if they are accepted but we are told it could take quite awhile to get onto this! Family long ago gave up and sometimes the person with M.H. problems need someone outside of the family - again lack of funding!

Social Care has long been suffering even when the last party were in!
A lack of Social care workers has been partially to blame for this.
I have friends who are Social workers - some have taken early retirement to get out of the huge case loads they had also the pressures of the job.
We saw a few years ago a mass influx of children being taken into care why - Mental Health problems, drugs and booze taking by parents.

They have spoken about taking the children of some refugees/immigrants to live with families of their own here - providing it doesn't put a strain on our welfare - what about the strain on the Social workers?????
I used to do some work in Sheffield Social Services and know the problems encountered around this - nuff said on that!!

It all comes down to lack of money and the only way out for some is ending their own life - sadly only last year we had a young woman who took her own life in woods just a short walk from where I live.

You are wise to be concerned for your child WCT !!!
