The short answer to the question, “What is Confirmation?”, is that Confirmation is the completion of Baptism.

Water, which symbolizes cleansing and life, was already used in some aspects of Jewish religious ritual by the time of Christ. John the Baptist invited folk to be washed in the Jordan and to make a new start because the Messiah (or “Christ” in Greek) was about to begin his work and they should make themselves ready.

The risen Jesus commanded his Apostles to go out into all the world, to preach the Gospel and baptize those who would become Christians.

In the book of the Acts of the Apostles ( the story of the Early Church), we hear how it was the practice of the Apostles, once someone had been washed in Baptism, to lay their hands upon the person’s head while praying that the Holy Spirit might be with them. Sometimes the baptized had to wait some considerable time until an Apostle was in the area to complete the business with the laying on of hands.

It would seem that, very early on, Christian parents wanted their children baptized (or “Christened” – either word will do) – they connected their hope of Heaven with their new faith and feared lest their children should die before they were made Christian children by baptism. The practice grew up of Christening babies with water – and delaying the laying on of hands until they were old enough to understand the basics of the faith and speak up for themselves. It is this later stage which became known as Confirmation. This laying on of hands at about the age of twelve or later has long been conducted by a bishop in a special service. In the Church of England, once confirmed, a person is permitted to receive the consecrated bread and wine in the service of Holy Communion.

The Church prepares people for Confirmation by providing a series of sessions which teach about such basic matters as the Scriptures, Holy Communion, prayer, morality and so on.

Have you considered Confirmation? If so, let me know and we can arrange some sessions (perhaps one per week) at convenient times.

It might be that you would like to attend the little classes and decide at the end whether you’d like to make the commitment or not. It might be that you’ve been a Churchgoer for years but would like to attend the sessions for a “top-up” on basic matters of faith. Whatever the case, you’d be welcome.

Please contact me by telephone on 01629 812234. You can leave a message if I’m out.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Richard Benson,

Dairy Crest Development Dairy Crest Development Update

The provisional date for the Planning Committee to consider this is 10am Friday 13 February at the Peak Park Offices in Bakewell. The Parish Council and a number of residents will be speaking against the Application for 26 houses and we welcome as much support as possible. In this we are also supported by Friends of the Peak Park (the Council for Protection of Rural England). Full details are always updated on the Parish Council website –  This also includes a copy of our reasons for opposing the scheme.

The delay is a result of Cathelco failing to supply proper traffic or flood relief plans with their original Application. These have now been submitted as Amendments and at the same time they have slightly reduced the height of the 3 storey mansion to the west of the Bridge End farm track. However the ground plan for the house is now even larger to incorporate an indoor swimming pool! As we have stated many times we do not oppose development of this site but 26 houses in an urbanised estate it simply too big and does not reflect an organic extension to our village. Particularly as there are just 4 affordable homes and only 3 three bedroom houses. All others are executive 4 and 5 bedroom houses with garages.

In summary:

  1. This Application would have an adverse effect on the Character and Landscape of the National Park
  2. The scale of development is too large
  3. It fails to complement or integrate with the existing Village
  4. It offers insufficient enhancement to the National Park or the Community

We do not as yet know the Planning Officer’s recommendations but once we receive these we will again publish them on our website. To see the full Application copy and paste the following in your web browser NP/DDD/1014/1045 – Planning Application Search – Peak District National Park Authority

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 13 February in Bakewell and let’s remember the original Application was defeated on Friday 13th December 2011 – so Friday 13th isn’t necessarily a bad omen!

Christmas Tree festival- Village Hall- This was a very successful event held between 13th-19th December with 18 trees representing a range of businesses and community groups on display and some very tasty mulled wine and mince pies. An excellent opening to the event on the Saturday with a tractor run, The Manifold Bygones Stationary Engines and wonderful hot food for these good people provided by Jen Ball at The Royal British Legion and funded by the Hartington Community Group.

Father Christmas (alias John Riley) arrives with his wonderful sleigh to give tours of the village and then the great moment of the Parish Council Christmas Tree “Switch On” on the Village Green. The crowd then moved to the village hall for mulled wine and mince pies, when the 18 trees had their moment and were switched on.

During the week there was a Tombola and Raffle with prizes donated by the local businesses and members of the community and these, alongside the donations received raised over £600 for the village hall. We were pleased so many visitors came as well as local people. On Monday the Badminton Club had a Christmas party which was open to all. On Tuesday there was Christmas Bingo- with the “master bingo caller” –Margaret Partridge and then a dazzling “Strictly learn to dance” on Wednesday which was very entertaining. A big “thank you”- to George and Shirley Riley and David and Norma Twigg- who put us through our “paces/steps”. The only disappointment was there could have been so many more there to have joined in the fun.

The climax of the week- “Carol Singing”- Janet Galloway Booth and her singers from Buxton entertained us all by singing a verse of each of the 18 carols used as themes for the trees- a light buffet- Father Christmas came to call and had presents for young and old; and then a rousing “carolling” session led by Phillip Goodwin on the organ and compere Margaret Partridge.

The small steering group (4 people) who organised the event had a debrief on 22nd January- the outcomes of this meeting were as follows- Dates for 2015- Saturday 12th December; Sunday 13th December; Friday 18th December. A Project group to be established at the HCG AGM/Meeting on February 16th to ensure more volunteers are involved with specific roles. You will note that we do not plan to hold events during the week. A lot of effort was put into the 3 sessions we ran, with limited numbers attending- it is such a busy time of year and people would have other commitments so perhaps we were being too adventurous. Look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Village Christmas Tree – I am sure all agree that this year’s Christmas Tree was exceptional and sincere thanks are due to the people who made this happen. Firstly Joe and Jane Gibbs for donating the tree which was originally a small Christmas tree planted by Joe’s mother Phyllis some 30 years ago!

Secondly Richard Sherratt and Brian Broomhead for all their work in making this event happen. Normally Alan Grindey on behalf of the Council does all the work, but with his unfortunate accident prior to Christmas, we had to turn elsewhere. (Alan is now much recovered, but as a result has been restricted in his normal snow clearance efforts).Not only did Richard and Brian fell the tree without damaging people cars or property, which was no mean feat with a 30ft plus tree!

They built a permanent concrete cavity to hold the tree which allowed it to survive some of the fiercest winds unscathed. Then they moved and erected it and somehow got lights to the very top. Because we had no power supply Richard provided tractor batteries for power which had to be recharged several times. Then he came daily to switch on at dusk and off at around 11pm every night. Quite remarkable over a Christmas period!

Finally he and Brian dismantled and removed the tree and retained the lights for next year. Richard tells me they are already on the case for this year’s tree and of course if any of you have a large unwanted pine in your garden do get in touch! So on behalf of the Parish Council and Village may we thank them heartily. If we can only get Western Power to supply a mains source to the village green it will be easier but regardless we hope Hartington’s Christmas tree and celebrations are here to stay.    Thanks again Joe, Jane, Richard and Brian.

Village Hall 2015 Calendar

The Hartington Village Calendar has been a real success, making (to date) just over £800 profit, all of which going to the Village Hall.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported this project, especially: All those who submitted photos for entry in the Calendar Competition – such a varied and high quality range of photos; Leek College of Art for judging the Competition – by their own admission, not an easy task; Lucy and David Annat for co-ordinating and producing such a high quality Calendar; Lesley Birch, Richard Gregory, Mick Parsons, Ian Parsons and Andy Bray for their support in spearheading this project; Village Hall Committee for their support; Beresford Tea Rooms, A&S Peach Newsagent & General Store, The Village Stores, Cocoa Grove, The Rook, The Cheese Shop, Hartdale Motors, British Legion, Youth Hostel, The Jug & Glass, and Birch Cottages, for selling them; Liz Broomhead for her tireless work, support and enthusiasm for this project; and last, but not least, for everyone who has bought a Calendar. Thank you.

Hartington Church of England Primary School- On Friday 12th of December, members of the Peak District National Park Authority were on hand on to present the children with certificates to reward them for work exploring the history and ecosystem of Beresford Dale. As part of a year-long project, students spent time investigating different aspects of Beresford Dale, including plants, animal habitats, geology, history and the future.  Learning and Discovery Team Leader at the Peak District National Park Authority, Sarah Wilks said: “It’s all about connecting them with the special place, finding out all about it and taking responsibility for it too.”

More than 80 people attended St Giles’ Church on Thursday 11th December for the School’s annual Nativity Play which was followed by a Pea and Pie Supper in school. This was a very enjoyable event organised by the PTFA and raised more than £900 to go towards enhancing the school curriculum. Students linked the play to the Christmas Day Truce of the Great War, and said Happy Christmas to the audience in each of the languages of the countries which took part in World War One.

Vice Chairman of the School’s Governors, Liz Broomhead said: “It was wonderful to see so many people come together to enjoy the festivities. We are absolutely delighted that both the Nativity Play and Pea and Pie Supper were so well attended and the events have raised so much money for the school. This money will go towards enhancing the students’ learning and curriculum and it is very much appreciated. It’s lovely to see and feel the sense of community spirit in the village with everyone being so generous. We’d like to thank everyone who contributed and donated.”  

The 18th December saw the children visit Buxton Opera House to see Jack and the Beanstalk and then on Friday 19th the Christmas Community Lunch and Party at the school, with special guest, Father Christmas.

School started back on January 5th – we will once again joining forces with Taddington and Priestcliffe C of E Primary School, this time for African Dance, Sport, Story and Art workshops. Pupils will visit the school on Thursday 15th January for an afternoon of native African fun and education. There’ll be African Dance called ‘Footballers Journey’ to link with the Africa Cup of Nations, which runs from Saturday 17th January to Sunday 8th of February. That will be followed by a short story session and then pupils will put their art skills to the test with an African Art Workshop. The event’s being ran by Bemma Akyeampon, of African Ark, based in Nottingham. Later this month, on Thursday 29th January, Hartington School will welcome Taddington and Priestcliffe students for similar African themed events- we will let you know how they perform in the next edition.

On Friday 16th we will be holding the first of 2015 Community lunches with special guests from MAST.

Derbyshire Life Magazine- March Edition- Please keep a look out for this as it will have a feature on Hartington Church of England Primary School- it will be the 150th Anniversary in 2016.

Family Church Services back in Hartington – Family Church Services are set to return to Hartington on the third Sunday of every month. Sarah Lacey, who led the services for ten years prior to an 18 month break last year, is happy to be back and involved in St Giles’ Church life once more.

This is an open ended arrangement subject to changes in the White Peak Benefice.

Sarah is also Chairman of Hartington C of E Primary School Governors and she said: “I am really looking forward to coming back to lead the services. The services are short and child-friendly and all children are welcome, from ages 0 to 100!”

“I am open to ideas for future family services, including open air services on the Village Green, an agricultural and animal service at a local farm and a living nativity play at Christmastime.”

“We’ll serve some jolly-good homemade biscuits following the service too!”

Family Church Services take place at St Giles Church in Hartington on the third Sunday of every month, starting at 10am and last for approximately 45 minutes.


First Responders    If you are unfortunate enough to require the assistance of the Ambulance Service, please be aware that as you live on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border you may be able to access the local community First Responders. To do this, when you dial 999 and ask for an Ambulance, you need to ask if the First Responders based in Staffordshire are available. We cannot guarantee that we are, as at present we are a Team of 1 and therefore very limited in the amount of cover that we are able to offer, and it is also possible that we are already on another emergency.

By asking for the Community First Responders this may prompt the control room into asking for our assistance. Unfortunately we are not insured if we are not tasked by control, therefore the only way to contact us is by dialling 999. We thank you for your patience and assistance in this matter.

Hartington History Group meeting- this was held on January 22nd Attendees- Liz Broomhead, Janet Bray, Richard Gregory, Margaret Partridge, Lesley Birch, Kath Williamson, Josie Hadwen and Liz Broomhead with apologies from Pat Harrison.

The 2 items on the agenda were the Diary & Letters of George Fredrick Birch during WW1 which Lesley Birch and her family with Richard Gregory have transcribed in to an amazing document.

The second being the Diary of John Robert (Bob)Sherratt -1933-1955- This project has been led by Richard Gregory who has been excellently supported by the group to conduct research and add value to what is a unique social diary of life in Hartington during this time.

The group will focus on this project for this year- we will be contacting many members of the community who may have memories of him and the people he references. The History Group Archives are proving invaluable as a resource to provide additional information and photographs- we would always welcome more if you are willing to share –we would scan and return. Please contact Margaret Partridge (84480) or Liz Broomhead (687263)and we will collect.

Leon Goodwin is also doing an amazing job in helping us into the digitised/ technological world- please see the community group web site . A work currently in progress is digitising the History Group Archives and presenting them in an accessible online format (text to audio for newspaper articles etc.) in a Wikipedia style site.

Alan Yeo- Many of you will remember Alan and Imelda who lived at Holloway Cottage. They were very active members of the community, especially with Curtain Call. When I was travelling back on the train from Manchester, last November, I met Alan and we had an enjoyable hour reminiscing about Hartington during this time he told me that he had received the MBE in 2012 for his work with “Cross Generational Projects”. I thought those of you who remember him would like to know. All the family are well and happily settled near Lancaster.   Liz Broomhead

CONGRATULATIONS- on the 90th Birthdays for the following members of Biggin Community-                                Phyllis Wragg- January 15th;
Gwen Clayton- February 28th;
Vera Naylor March 9th.

Biggin Village Hall Pensioner’s Party – As usual we were, once again, able to hold a Christmas Party for our village pensioners.  The setting up for the party, tables etc, organising glasses and various Christmassy items were all organised by the committee, each person able to contribute in some way to making this a success. The night went really well, catering for around 45 people, all food and drink were provided free of charge, and an excellent raffle took place.  The entertainer this year was Phil Steele, his first visit, and everyone said how much they enjoyed the meal and the “cabaret”.

Thank you to Biggin Hall for helping to make this possible by organising the catering side of things for us. Thank you to the Charity Committee for donating £300 towards the cost, and this year we had an extra fund raiser, Joan Flower, who also helped.

The proceeds from the all year round selling of books and jigsaws all go towards the cost of the party. We hope to be able to continue this now well established tradition, and must be one of the few villages in the country who can do this.

Thank you to everyone involved.

Jennie Gill           

Biggin Waterloo Charity Committee – Children’s Christmas Party.

We were very happy to be able to organise another party for the village children.   There were over 50 who attended, aged from a few months up to village school leaving age.

Everything went very well, Santa and his Elves were extremely well organised, each child received a present and selection box.  There was plenty of food to be eaten at the start of the party, and tea and coffee etc. for the parents, a raffle and party games.   We had reindeer food to be mixed, and face painting organised and run by Sally Frazer-Smith, which proved to be very popular. Thank you to Sally.

The highlight of the afternoon was of course, the arrival of Santa, who with the help of his trusty elves, worked his way very efficiently through the present ritual, and Tracy once again took photographs of Santa and each guest which will be distributed sometime after the party.

Lots of fun and excitement made it a lovely occasion, and loads of thanks go to everyone who made it such a success.

St Thomas’ Church – Christmas at Church was busy as usual. Fortunately our new heating system was installed just in time for the Carol Service. The school children performed beautifully and everyone seemed to welcome the mulled wine and mince pies which followed the service. On Christmas Day we welcomed our usual friends from Biggin Hall, it is a pleasure to see them year after year.

D Brindley


Biggin WI- At the beginning of December members enjoyed their Christmas meal at Biggin Hall. The evening ended with coffee and mince pies and our “Secret Santa” making a lovely start to Christmas celebrations.

The New Year started with a good turnout with 11 members and 2 visitors present. The Christmas meal was discussed and possible alternatives suggested. Members were reminded that subs. Are due in February and that Biggin are hosts for the Area Group Meeting in April, when Alan Salt is the speaker. Following the evenings business Cathy Reary of Threads, the creative needlework workshop in Alstonefield was the speaker. She showed beautiful examples of her intricate craftwork including buttons, corsages, decorative items and also intricate work done for various celebrations in the church. She was warmly thanked by everyone for her beautiful display. The evening ended with the usual chatty supper.                                             Jen Brindley


Christmas Party- Many thanks to all who helped organise our Senior Citizens Christmas Party. Everything beautifully set up for us, lovely food, plenty of beer and wine and an entertainer who seemed to enjoy himself as much as the audience. Again, Many Thanks.

Jen and David Brindley.


Easter Lilies- Easter is at the beginning of April and I would be grateful if all the people who wish to donate Lilies in memory of loved ones would contact me in good time so that these can be ordered accordingly. Many thanks for your continued support .                                                              Jen Brindley
