I have just come through Wirksworth an hour ago and it is carnival weekend.The place is heaving with people.One pub on the main street must have had at least 200 stood outside having a drink and others looked pretty busy.

Hubby tells me at one time the carnival in Wirksworth always ended in fighting so hoping it's calmer this weekend  :)

A mate of mine came across a queue of cars sat at the lights the other day, so he overtook the lot and parked at the front. Not a problem, he was on a motorbike. The lights changed to green so off he poddled. Then realised he'd gone wrong somewhere, his exit was narrowing off with a row of cones. He nipped between 2 cones and made an quick embarrased exit  :))

Not as embarrased as the line of cars that had followed him and were now stuck  8)

 :)) Are you serious  :))

Very sad JR and so young.
As for Schumacher I doubt anyone is reading too much into this 'improvement' - the longer it goes on the less chance of much recovery unfortunately.

Sport / F1 legend Michael Schumacher ‘making progress’
« on: May 23, 2015, 04:43:14 PM »
 17 months after horror Alps skiing crash - that's not long after a  serious head injury.
It can take years and even then the person maybe won't ever be the same again.

I do hope Michael recovers enough to be able to enjoy life again though even if it's limited to what he can do.

FORMULA One ace Michael Schumacher is "making progress" as he continues to recover from a near-fatal skiing crash in the French Alps, his manager has said.

Michael Schumacher won seven world champion titles
Speaking last night, his manager Sabine Kehm said the F1 star was “making progress” but added that people “must always keep the seriousness of his injuries in mind”.

The German driver suffered severe head injuries after an accident in Meribel in December 2013.

Schumacher spent several months fighting for his life in a coma following the crash, but last June was transferred from a hospital in the French town of Grenoble to a Swiss hospital after regaining consciousness.

He returned home to Gland on Lake Geneva in September 2014 for further rehabilitation.

People must always keep the seriousness of his injuries in mind
Schumacher's manager
His family have imposed a near-total news blackout on the care he is receiving at his Swiss mansion.

Yet in February he was understood to be mute with "limited awareness" of his environment and is also still unable to walk.

Schumacher was crowned the wealthiest driver ever to have raced in F1, with a fortune in excess of £520million.

But the seven-time world champion’s family is facing spiralling care costs with the current spending on his rehabilitation estimated at over £10million.

His family is said to be spending around £100,000-a-week looking after him.

His £2million holiday home in Norway was sold earlier this year, and his wife Corinna is also believed to have sold his private jet for £25million.

After reports in February that his recovery had been “painfully slow”, today’s announcement means the star’s latest prognosis is more positive.

Schumacher was skiing with his 14-year-old son in an off-piste area between two marked runs when he crashed into a concealed rock.

Last December – a year after the accident - Schumacher’s manager warned that the racing legend faced a “long fight” to recover fully.

Schumacher won a record 91 F1 races but retired from the sport in 2012 after an attempted comeback ended in disappointment.

He won his first Grand Prix in Belgium in 1992 and his last in China in 2006.

What did I tell you folks - what did I say!!  :))

Have been along Derby road and the lights have gone.

I said to hubby tongue in cheek oh sh@@ quick I'll have to catch up that car in front or I won't know where to go  :-?  :-?

As we were going left of the roundabout two cars kept left and went round it, but the third driver, clearly confused, had stopped and didn't know where to go to get round it  :))  :))

My post was bit of fun - but obviously does confuse some  :))

I reckon they need to put a keep left signs, both sides of the roundabout just to remind drivers  :))

I don't need to go to any meeting to know what that's about. That said it could be useful to know where these car parks are I bet it gets lively after dark.

Behave niche we don't want you locked up  :-?

They are also looking at other area's across Derbyshire, will it put more PC's out on the streets though?

Residents across Amber Valley, Bolsover District, Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire are being encouraged to share their thoughts on local policing.
Safer Neighbourhood teams across Chesterfield Division are encouraging people to go online to fill out a Community Survey for their area.
The consultation gives residents the opportunity to raise any issues or concerns that police and partner agencies may be able to address. It also asks respondents to rate local policing in their area on a scale of one to 10.
It is hoped that the completed surveys will help to shape policing across Chesterfield Division by showcasing how Safer Neighbourhood teams are perceived by the public, how they are performing and how they can improve.
Officers will also be able to use feedback to help set policing plans and work towards priorities to tackle issues raised by residents.
PC Neil Hopwell from the Kilburn Safer Neighbourhood Team is one of the driving forces behind the idea for the consultation. He said: “We understand residents across Derbyshire lead busy lives and may not always have the time to attend community panel meeting to meet local officers and have their say. We wanted to offer them a simple alternative in the Community Survey, which ensures their voices are still being heard and does not take long to complete.
“We hope local people will give honest feedback about the service we provide and give us details of how it can be improved. This will allow us to work towards future goals together alongside partner agencies and local residents, to ensure everyone feels happy and safe where they live.” 
Similar surveys have also been piloted in the High Peak and Safer Neighbourhood areas in the Derby Division.
People across Chesterfield Division can find the relevant survey for their area via the links below:
