Jo Jessup

with her

award and

other gifts


TEACHING assistant at Deer Park Primary School has

been honoured for 25 years’ dedicated service.

Jo Jessup was herself a pupil at the school and later joined the

staff providing one-to-one support for children with special

educational needs, but is now class-based.

Over the years, she has worked with hundreds of “super children”,

she said.

She commented: “It’s a lovely school and rewarding work. The

role has changed a lot during my time here. It used to be more of a

pastoral role and preparing the classroom, but now it’s very much

about teaching and I love that.”

between 10am and 8pm on March 8th. A safe containing a number

of documents was stolen after burglars broke into the house.

"Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have any

information about the incident to contact Derbyshire police on 101.

"Since December 12th, 16 burglaries – seven of which are incidents

involving sheds, garages and a container - have been reported to

police in and around Wingerworth. Pro-active patrols have been

increased around the area and crime prevention packs have been

given to residents.

“Victims are receiving support and local police’s social media

accounts have also been disseminating crime prevention messages.

"We rely on local people reporting suspicious activity in the area

promptly so that a picture of what is occurring can be created and

acted upon.

"There are a number of ways in which local people can help

inform the intelligence and crime safety by joining their area’s

Neighbourhood Watch scheme. For Wingerworth, and the rest of

the north of county, please call Joye Dobbs on 0300 122 8526 or
