Chesterfield Discussion / Improving Old Whittington junction
« on: Today at 01:09:58 PM »
Is this the road which comes out onto the Old Whittington Road at the bottom near the roundabout?

Work to improve a junction with a history of collisions starts on Monday 6 October 2014.

The junction of the B6052 and B6057 at Station Road, Old Whittington has a history of accidents stretching back many years. The side road is to be re-aligned to move it further away from the busy Whittington Moor roundabout to make it safer.
The work should last for 13 weeks. A partial road (one way) closure will be in operation on Brimington Road North while the work is taking place. The road will be closed to south bound traffic at the junction, but access will be available for northbound vehicles turning in off Station Road. There will be a signed diversionary route.
Derbyshire County Council's Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, Councillor Dean Collins said:

"The work we are doing will make this junction much safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. There will inevitably be some disruption but we will make every effort to keep this to a minimum."

The work will cost 180,000.

A lot of money but if it helps avoid accidents ??????

We use it sometimes Fly.

Sorry folks Whetherspoons is NOT taking over the Greyhound!!

Staff - knickers in a twist me thinks !!

It appears after the meeting today it's clear that the Greyhound are in fact to have a new Manager, who worked previously for Whetherspoons.

The menu will stay the same.

So what instigates a smokers decision to quit smoking.

Is it the consistent warnings of what smoking can do to health or is it that damage has already been done to your health and it was a 'must quit'  or else face the consequences decision?

Chesterfield Discussion / Smokers in Derbyshire challenged to quit
« on: September 30, 2014, 03:50:51 PM »
Will anyone take up this challenge?

Smokers in Derbyshire are being challenged to take part in national 'Stoptober' month, which begins on 1 October, is being backed by Derbyshire County Council's public health team.

There are almost 114,000 smokers who live in Derbyshire. Smoking is the nation's biggest killer with half of long-term smokers dying prematurely from a smoking-related illness.

Evidence shows that if a smoker can go 28 days without a cigarette they are five times more likely to give up permanently. And research suggests that smokers can gain up to seven days of life for every 28 they remain smokefree. Last year 3,504 people had given up smoking quit after the month-long campaign.

While smoking across the country is falling steadily, it is still the biggest cause of premature death causing more than 80,000 deaths in England every year.

Derbyshire County Stop Smoking Service can help and support any anyone wanting to stop smoking. There is a telephone support service where smokers will get a call from an advisor once a week − ideal for people who are unable to attend a clinic regularly. There are also drop-in sessions and one-to-one support available from local pharmacies and GP practices.

Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Dave Allen said:

"It's vital that when someone has made the decision to give up smoking that they have all the support they need. "
It's not an easy thing to do so the help, support and advice that Derbyshire County Stop Smoking Service can give is all the more important in giving people everything they need to break the habit for good".

Be part of the challenge. For help and support call Derbyshire County Stop Smoking Service on 0800 085 22 99 or 01246 515153, text 'Easy' to 80800 or visit

I've heard they are taking over the Greyhound at Higham.
That's one of our haunts.
Not sure if it will be after the change over.
What's the food like?

Walking was another of my favourites.
Regularly used to walk to Ashover and back.

I wouldn't disagree with that poster Pete.
It's the way things are -  pots of money for somethings and not others.

The threat we are under is very real and these people need sorting.
They are very clever and also rich.

Sadly the only way is for multiple nations to stand together against them.

I am in the process of writing a cheque for a Poppy to go to Flanders.
If these brave men gave their lives for our country at least our country should unite with others against this organisation who threaten us - and they do.

If this Government really wanted to, they could find a decent wage for the nurses and put money into the NHS.
Truth is they are not bothered - they want it to go private!
That's a different thread though.

About as clear as mud that is Pete.

Here is a clip from a newspaper.

The airstrikes - which employed U.S. Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, F16, F18 and F22 strike fighters and drones - was backed by support from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan and the UAE - a coalition of nations that has agreed to assist with the destruction of ISIS.

If IS is supported by Saudi Arabia - why are they bombing them.

Pete I don't think we should have to do it - but it seems as if the more that unite the better.
I heard on the news yesterday that the airstrikes have already made a difference as IS is having to change tactics.
Eventually they will hopefully run out of these.

What has probably had some persuasion for us to join in is the be headings - we don't generally need much anyway!
