I was surprised by this as the last I heard they had stopped legal aid - or was that for certain things?

He fought valiantly for Brexit then sat back and watched whilst the shit hit the fan.

We go round in circles with this Brexit malarkey.
I reckon the truth is that none of us were able to give a sound vote as we didn't know enough about the implications of it - maybe because the politicians didn't and maybe because they told some lies to get the result they wanted - ??

Also I forgot to mention the Crown inn at Higham has closed indefinitely. No one seems to know why, it was a case of all of a sudden there he was.... gone! 
It's a great shame, you could always be sure of good grub and a decent pint there. It's been a bit hit and miss for a while apparently, we booked middle of last year and when we got there pinned to the back door was a hastily scribbled note saying sorry no food kitchen closed, so we went to the Greyhound and had a decent meal and we are going back this week but would have preferred the Crown.

I haven't been in the Crown for a good few years but I remember it was on The hotel inspector a few years ago.
We went with friends to the greyhound just before Christmas but were not impressed either by the new menu or the food served so haven't been back.

Enjoyed the Barley Mow in Wingerworth though oh and the Sizzling steak in the Donkey Derby

Chesterfield Discussion / Re: Bus Fare increases from 02/01/17

The late arrival of buses is having an affect on our community care workers.
Not all drive and rely buses to get from person to person. Their day is made extra long and obviously people who rely on them for meals and medication are left waiting - as the day goes on the calls get later.
The same will go for people who need the bus to get to work, some may have to wait until their children are in school - if the bus is late they are late for work.

General Discussion / Birds

I'm not sure  why but the wild birds we have enjoyed in our garden are not visiting.
In the past we have struggled to keep up with the food for them - not now. It was same in the winter they didn't come - well very few.

On the up side the Hedgehogs are back!!  :)

Tupton Local History Society has a repeat presentation evening by Laura Binns.

Earlier this month this presentation was popular we were turning people away as the Church was full.
We were fortunate to be able to book Laura again for this coming Thursday
