Sam’s the man

for gruelling

cycle challenges

Sam Hall in training

for his fund-raising

bike rides

A Chesterfield man is defying his disability

and aiming to cycle 1,000 miles for charity in

memory of his dad. Deborah Wain reports

S

AM Hall, who has cerebral palsy, is to take to the saddle to

complete events including the single longest bike ride of his

life along 119 miles of the Tour de France route.

He takes on the challenge two years after undergoing lifechanging

brain surgery.

Sam, 34, who lives in the town centre, is riding to raise money for

Prostate Cancer UK. His dad Steven sadly died following a hardfought

battle with prostate cancer in March in a hospice in

Cornwall, where Sam is originally from.

Sam’s challenge involves The Grand Depart Classic event, cycling

the first stage of this year's Tour De France route in Belgium, the

RideLondon100 – a 100-mile route from London to Surrey – along

with one of the stages of this year’s UCI World Road Cycling

Championships, in Yorkshire.

Sam, who works as a noise and vibration engineer for an

automotive consultancy, said the challenge would be more difficult

for him than most people, given his cerebral palsy and brain

surgery.

He said: “Because of my cerebral palsy I didn't learn to ride a bike

6

until later on in my childhood. But I got back into it a few years ago

when I did the Coast-to-Coast cycle trail over three days with

some friends. A couple of years later I took part in the famous

RideLondon 100, which is up to now the longest bike ride I have

done, but all of this was before my operation. My longest post-op

ride at the moment is 30 miles.”

Sam underwent a deep brain stimulation procedure at the Royal

Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield in August, 2017.

It involved inserting electrodes into his brain and connecting them

to a pacemaker-like device in his abdomen.

Sam said: “Prior to this, my disability only affected my neck, my

speech and my walk. Immediately afterwards, I completely lost

the ability to speak. Having not been told this was a possible sideeffect,

it was incredibly worrying and very frustrating, but I didn't

give up. Slowly, over the next couple of weeks, I began to string

words together, and then sentences. Within three months I was

back at work.

“In the longer-term, the operation has had some good and some

bad effects. It has completely stopped my neck spasms and helped

my speech and my walk. However, it has now given me spasms in

my hands and arms which can sometimes be very painful, not the

sort of thing you want while cycling.”

Despite the obstacles, Sam says he loves a challenge. Anyone

who wants to support his efforts should go to

So much to

celebrate

this summer

Peter Swallow, chair of

Destination Chesterfield, says

our town centre really comes

to life at this time of year

W

E’RE almost half way through

the year and the weather is

warming up, which can only mean one

thing – the events season is upon us

and Chesterfield is certainly getting

into the swing of it!

The town centre fully comes to life at

this time of year, with events drawing in

visitors who are keen to experience something a little different.

This is where being a market town gives us one of many

advantages as Chesterfield has the ready-made outside space in

the market to host festivals and events.

I am delighted to see that event organisers are making the most

of this space. In May alone, we welcome Chesterfield Street Food

and Grooves Festival for a second year running and the brand new

Vegan Knights Festival, and, of course, the ever-popular Artisan

Market.

Events like these play a big role in encouraging footfall into the

town centre, giving visitors the opportunity to see for themselves

our great retail and food and drink offering. Often, people can

run down the town, claiming in one breath that it is full of empty

shops yet, in the same sentence, admit to never shopping in

Chesterfield.

The town is most definitely not full of empty shops. In fact,

Chesterfield is renowned nationally for having fewer vacant shops

than the majority of towns and cities.

We owe our vibrant town centre in part to the plethora of

independent businesses who are located there; long established

retailers as well as new shops, stores and market stalls opening

regularly.

The wealth of independent retailers has never been more

apparent that in the shortlist for year’s Chesterfield Retail

Awards.

We had a record year for nominations with more than half of the

30 finalists being shortlisted for the first time in the awards.

The strong shortlist not only mirrors the year-on-year success of

these popular awards but also the town’s high-quality and varied

retail scene.

It’s very encouraging to see so many people taking the time to

nominate their favourites in the Chesterfield Retail Awards. I

expect to see a similar picture for nominations for the Food and

Drink businesses later this year. Having such a varied shortlist only

adds to the excitement of the awards and makes for a very special

awards evening.

If you can’t make the Retail or Food or Drink Awards, don’t worry;

there’s a whole plethora of things happening in and around

Chesterfield this year which showcase the town’s vibrant retail and

food and drink scene.

These events are not only an opportunity to have a great time, but

also a way to shop local and invest in the economy. We can all play

our part in helping make Chesterfield the place to live, work and

invest.

Destination Chesterfield has an up-to-date list of events on its

website at www.chesterfield.co.uk. You won’t be disappointed!

Lesley’s back in town

Much-loved opera singer Lesley

Garrett appears in a summer

celebration with the Chesterfield

Philharmonic Choir this month -

40 years on from when she

performed with them at the

very start of her career. Twist’s

Deborah Wain catches up with

Lesley ahead of the concert

I

T was in July, 1979, that Lesley Garrett

was guest soprano with Chesterfield

Philharmonic Choir in a choral and

orchestral concert at the Crooked Spire.

At the time, Lesley was a final year student at

the Royal Academy of Music and had been given

small engagements under a development

scheme in order to build her experience and

repertoire.

She said: “It was a great way of gaining

experience and I remember it as a formative

period in my development. The concert went

very well and was well-regarded by the local

press!

“It basically got me going and without these

concerts I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m

incredibly grateful to Chesterfield Philharmonic

Choir for that opportunity and for welcoming me

back 40 years on.”

On Saturday, 29th June, Lesley will again

perform with the choir in a summer celebration

event at The Winding Wheel. It comes as the

choir wrap up their 52nd successful season in

Chesterfield.

Some nine singers who were on stage with

Lesley 40 years ago and have eagerly followed

her career will be involved in the latest concert.

Lesley, from Doncaster, has gone on to become

one of the most well-known opera singers in the

country, not only with the opera cognoscenti but

with mainstream audiences too.

As well as her recordings, she has performed

on stages around the globe and with artists from

right across the musical world. She has had her

own TV series as well as taking part in

programmes such as ‘Strictly Come Dancing’,

‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, ‘Loose Women’

and ‘Songs of Praise’.

Asked for a career highlight, Lesley chooses

her TV series of the early 2000s and the CBE

she was awarded in 2002 for services to music.

It is a source of pride to her that she has brought

opera and classical music to a wider audience.

She puts her long career down to the singing lessons she’s had for

the last 42 years with singing coach Joy Mammen, whom she met

while at the Royal Academy, her “understanding husband” Peter, a GP,

with whom she has two children, and also that she has remained

passionate about singing.

As well as enjoying new challenges and projects – she has just

finished appearing in a new opera at English National Opera, based on

the women victims of Jack the Ripper which will be brought to Leeds

in 2020 – she is keen to share her love of what she does.

She said: “Choir numbers are going up and that’s great. It’s very

healthy to sing. It makes you breathe deeply and stand up straight and

10

Lesley Garrett: ‘The 1979 concert went very well and

was well-regarded by the local press’

helps you to feel confident.”

Lesley was thrilled to receive the invitation to sing again with

Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir.

“It’s a wonderful way to celebrate being a professional singer for 40

years. I’ve never been out of work in that time,” she said.

Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir took its title in 1967. Musical Director

Steven Roberts, who boasts a long list of choral achievement both

here and abroad, joined in 1996.

Today Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir has a membership of nearly

90 singers, drawn from the local area and further afield.

Steven said: “Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir have never stopped


Tw st

Specialists in Tile & Slate Roofing

• Slate Roofs • Tiled Roofs • Leadwork • Flat Roofs

Programme from 40 years ago

being innovative and have always tried to push the musical boundaries

to challenge and inspire both singers and audience alike.

“We have given several first performances, sung the great choral

classics and ventured into lighter repertoire as well. Every time the

'Phil' has embraced the genre and given their best to achieve the

highest possible standard. As amateur singers, we strive for

professional standards and in so doing we engage professional

instrumentalists to accompany us.

“Alongside this, I have always been a champion of new and young

talent. I was afforded many opportunities as a young conductor and

was very grateful for this support. The choir regularly engages young

soloists, often in their final year of study to sing with us and indeed this

was the case 40 years ago.

“Whilst we cannot boast giving young soloists the start they needed to

be successful, we can boast about the opportunity to perform, to hone

their craft, to begin their artistic journey. One simple performance

doesn't make a career, but it adds to the experience and it teaches us

how to be professional and how to do the job!

“For many soloists, a career in the public eye is not achievable, but

when a personality shines as bright as Lesley's it is inevitable. Even in

that early performance 40 years ago, the handful of singers who are

still in the choir tell me that she had something special, a certain

quality, that many have now come to love.

“Lesley has a wonderful connection with her audience and makes

those she performs with feel very special.

“Having Lesley sing for and with us in Chesterfield will be a special

night. For those who experienced, what would have been one of her

early performances, it will rekindle memories. For those fairly new to

the choir it will be a joyous and memorable evening.”

As a nod to the original concert, Lesley will perform ‘Pie Jesu’, from

‘Durufle’s Requiem’, a piece on the original music sheet.

But will Lesley feel as nervous as she did before the last

performance?

“I don’t get nervous in the way I used to but I still get very excited

and there is always that moment of anticipation,” she said.

The concert will include performances from the Parish Church choir

and Charlotte Potter, who is an up-and-coming soprano, just as Lesley

was all of those years ago.

The Phil In Concert with Lesley Garrett, presented by Chesterfield

Philharmonic Choir, is on at the Winding Wheel, on Saturday, 29th

June, at 7pm. Tickets are £26.20, concessions £21.20, under

16/student/unemployed £16.20, and are available via the Chesterfield

Theatres website or the box office 01246 345222.

O

H summer! It feels like

years since you’ve been

here. But now here comes the

sun, hotter days, shorter nights and the sweet release of the

holidays.

It’s even better for me this year too; I get four extra weeks from

the usually scheduled six for my summer holidays because for me

it’s the end of year 11. I can’t wait. Ten long weeks, it’s what’s

fuelling me through exam season right now.

I hope it’s hot. But not as hot as last year; that was unbearable at

times and I don’t want to be stuck in an un-air-conditioned exam

hall while it’s sweltering outside.

Being sunny is one thing, but when it’s too hot I just can’t handle

it, I’d rather it be cold and wintry at that point. Controversial

opinion, I know.

And then comes the dilemma of what to do during my holidays off

school.

There are probably going to be a lot of extra-long lie-ins but

there’s nothing wrong with that. Apart from sleeping, I’m not really

sure though.

We’ve not been blessed with a football World Cup this summer

like last year and even though we have the Nations League to

contend with, I’m not sure it’s going to fulfil my football cravings, to

be honest. I guess the rugby World Cup in Japan will just have to

do, I suppose.

But I just need to get my exams out of the way first and that’s

easier said than done. And then when they’re here, the holidays will

probably fly by and I’ll be back in school for sixth form.

I’d better enjoy them while they last, then!

• With a Cricket World Cup and The Ashes this summer, the editor

has advised me I’ll have plenty of time to brush up on another sport!

Wendy Weston, fourth from left, with running colleagues

OCAL people living with or beyond cancer are being

encouraged to get active as part of a new initiative at

Poolsbrook Country Park, in Chesterfield.

The idea is to walk, jog, run, cheer or volunteer at the popular free

Parkrun event on the last Saturday of every month in which around

300 runners take part.

Participants then chat over a drink and cake in the café. The group

is also open to families, friends and those working in cancer

services.

One of the event’s ambassadors is Wendy Weston, a teacher, who

did the Poolsbrook Parkrun many times before being diagnosed with

breast cancer in January 2018.

Wendy’s treatment has included four surgeries, along with courses

of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and continues. She has been able

to run through part of the treatment and it has helped her to cope

with her illness.

Physical activity has been shown to have a number of important

benefits for people living with cancer. It reduces cancer related

fatigue, helps to preserve cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness

and improves psychological well-being. It may also reduce

treatment side effects, reduce the risk of cancer recurrence and

prolong survival. However, despite these benefits, a NHS report

found that only 23% of people living with cancer achieve the

recommended 30 minutes of moderate activity five times per week.

Wendy was thrilled to learn of 5k Your Way initiative which

combines a cancer support group with the popular Parkrun events.

There are currently 5K Your Way groups at 32 locations in the UK

and three in Ireland, however Poolsbrook is the first in Derbyshire.

Wendy said people had come from Chesterfield and further afield

to take part in the first two sessions.

“5k Your Way is quite a small charity but gradually word is getting

out and the feedback has been brilliant so far. It’s good to be taking

part with other people who are in the same boat and everyone is

really friendly.”

She added: “Being told you can exercise can make all the difference.”

Wendy, who has a daughter and two step-children, is joined in

running the events by Andy Morris and Tina Hensey. Andy also went

through cancer treatment in 2018.

People interested in joining the event are asked to register via the

following link:5kyourway.org/register before meeting at 8.45am on

the last Saturday of every month. For further information visit

Tackling Travellers issue

Toby Perkins MP explains why he is

proposing a new bill in Parliament to make

it an offence to demand money to leave

land that you are occupying illegally

T

HE siting of impromptu Gypsy and Traveller camps are

always controversial issues and there is always a

significant public outcry when a camp appears in our town.

Much of this is based on people’s experiences of the huge cleanup

required afterwards and the impact it can have on the owners of

the land.

We have seen temporary encampments appearing on public and

private land, at Queen's Park, Holmebrook Valley Country Park,

Millenium Way Business Park and numerous other sites. This has

often cost the borough council and local businesses thousands of

pounds in legal fees to evict them, and then hundreds of pounds

more in clearing up the sites once they have left.

There is also a growing problem of Travellers setting up

unauthorised encampments on business premises and then

demanding cash to leave the site. This happened to a local business

in Dunston recently and the advice they received from the police

was that often paying for the Travellers to leave is cheaper than

taking legal action.

This is simply extortion and so I am proposing a new bill in

Parliament which I introduced on 22nd May to make it a specific

offence to demand money to leave land that you are occupying

illegally.

The 'Unauthorised Encampments' bill had its second reading in

Parliament and although there is not time for it to be brought into law

in this parliament, I hope that it will be the start of a debate about

how the balance between a recognition of traveller lifestyle can be

done in a way that doesn’t impinge upon the lawful activities of our

businesses.

Adjusting legislation to protect landowners and businesses will rebalance

the law more evenly to prevent these extortionist practices.

There needs to be accommodation for Gypsy and Traveller

communities in a way that can win the confidence of local

communities, but ensuring that action is taken against criminal

elements is a part of building that public confidence.

The Traveller community does face discrimination and mistrust and

there is always opposition to any proposed sites; achieving a better

balance could lead to there being less hostility in future whilst

preventing businesses or communities from feeling powerless and

as though the law is against them.

It is one thing to acknowledge that Travellers will need somewhere

to be, it is quite another for them to use their presence as a

negotiating and money-making tool.

However, whilst it is important not to generalise, there are historic

Toby Perkins MP: ‘The best approach we can take is to create

permanent Gypsy and Traveller pitches in every area’

problems linked to Traveller sites that makes communities uneasy

about having a site in their area. And, though there is a duty on all of

us to not discriminate and prejudge Travellers, there is also a duty

on their community to adhere to the law and be respectful towards

the communities they move in to.

The best approach we can take is to create permanent Gypsy and

Traveller pitches in every area so that there are always places for

Travellers to set up camp. This will hopefully reduce the number of

illegal encampments whilst also encouraging Travellers to feel like

they are an equal part of the community.

But we also need tougher legislation to protect the rights of

businesses and local authorities and to prevent criminal behaviour.

You’ll never walk alone

It’s the world’s fastest-growing sport and its

birthplace was right here in Chesterfield. Now

the town is preparing to host walking football’s

first European tournament. Mike Firth reports

J

OHN Croot has taken on many jobs and responsibilities

during his life, but until recently he would never have

considered himself to be an inventor.

However, it was Chesterfield man John who dreamed up the idea

and laid down the rules for an activity which has gone on to

transform the lives of countless numbers of older people around the

world.

When walking football was first introduced by John and his

Chesterfield FC Community Trust colleagues just ten years ago, it

caused many a smile. But when sessions at Queen’s Park Sports

Centre were followed by games at Dronfield, Hasland and Newbold,

it was soon deemed a success.

Now the game is enjoyed as far afield as Australia, New Zealand,

Malaysia and Uganda and an inaugural World Cup is being planned

for next year. This month, top walking footballers are to feature in

the European Nations Cup which is to be competed for at the sport’s

birthplace, the Proact Stadium, on June 8th-9th.

Teams from England, Wales, Italy, France, Holland, Spain and

Portugal have been invited to compete, with a fans tournament also

being staged, plus a gala dinner taking place at the stadium.

Recalled John, chief executive of the Chesterfield FC Community

Trust: “Back in 2009, the Football Foundation had a project called

Extra Time, looking to encourage the over-50s to take up healthy

activities.

Walking football is a great way to stay mobile and agile as

you grow older. The game is administered by the Walking

Football Association and it has specific rules that outlaw all

running and allows no contact between players. Over head

height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the

sport is played safely with full consideration to the

participants’ ages.

Teams are either five or six-a-side and competitions

generally feature teams of over-50s or over-60s. However,

some players who compete are in their 80s or 90s. All

information, including rules, is available on the website,

thewfa.co.uk

“I went over to Manchester to hear a presentation to community

trusts. They had grants on offer which would normally have gone to

social activity projects featuring draughts, dominoes, snooker or

darts.

“Driving back through the Peak District, I asked myself what

barriers there were preventing older people from playing football.

There were obvious things such as running, sliding tackles and

throw-ins, so I imagined the game of football without them.

“I’ve always enjoyed walking and that’s why it came to me. When I

got back to Chesterfield I told colleague Andy Morris that I quite

liked the idea of walking football, ‘so let’s book a session and get it

advertised’.

“The world’s first ever walking football session was at Queen’s

Park, then it expanded to The Akademy in Dronfield and out to

Hasland and Newbold, and we had some really good feedback.

“After a few months, we were featured on Sky Sports News and

following that we received calls from more community trusts, leisure

centre managers and other charities and they all wanted us to send

them a copy of our rules.”

Locally, the Senior Spireites took up the game with a good deal of

success and former Chesterfield FC players Colin Tartt and David

Pugh took part. As some players improved their fitness, they

18

John Croot: ‘One player told me that when you score a

goal, whether you are 18 or 80, it still feels the same’

featured in a “moving on” group and began playing five-a-side

football.

Said John: “For us as a Trust, it was a fantastic outcome. People

who hadn’t played football for years stepped onto a pathway which

took them to walking football, then running.

“When walking football was featured by Barclays Bank in one of

their TV commercials, I remember turning to around my wife, Louise,

and telling her ‘I invented that’.

“It was at that point that I realised how big the sport was

becoming and how important it was to so many people.”

If any proof were needed of the sport’s roots being here in

Chesterfield, the Trust recently uncovered their first register for their

walking football group from a decade ago.

Since then, the game has featured on TV in Germany, France and

Japan

John has been contacted for information by groups in Africa,

Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Gibraltar and

elsewhere. On a recent family holiday to Tenerife, he looked out of

his hotel window and noticed some people outside were playing

walking football.

Walking Football Association chief executive Paul Carr

explained why Chesterfield was chosen to host the

tournament.

He said: “Chesterfield is the home of walking football as

John Croot, who is a WFA non-executive director, works here,

lives here and created the game here, so it’s the perfect place

to host the first international tournament for walking

football.”


Tw st

He visited Milan to help launch the sport in

Italy and was then invited to make a return

visit to present the trophy following an

international between Italy and England.

Added John: “Some people are joining in

who haven’t kicked a ball for 25 or maybe 30

years and many of them say it has changed

their lives. One player told me that when you

score a goal, whether you are 18 or 80, it

still feels the same.”

In addition to improving their fitness,

players also rediscover the camaraderie they

thought they had lost forever, making friends

and joining them on other activities. Locally,

these have included cycling in the Peak

District.

Although primarily aimed at the older

generation, walking football can be played

by anyone - and grandads can kick a ball

along with their grandsons.

Malaysia has considered walking football

as a way of getting its younger generation

active.

John, also a long-serving director with

Chesterfield FC, is keenly anticipating the

‘Euros’ event at The Proact and says it will

be a major celebration of the sport. The

England players have undergone trials in

order to be selected.

“The game was invented here, so there’s no

better place to have it,” he said.

A blue-footed booby enters the world

Paradise and destruction too

When Howard Borrell visited The Galapagos

to witness the success of their conservation,

he rapidly realised that support for the

programme wasn’t country-wide

I

'VE always assumed that something as incredibly complex as

"the meaning of life" could never really be explained; I've yet

to change my view.

Just recently, I visited the Galapagos Islands, the basis of Darwin’s

‘Origin of Species’, which he penned after visiting several of the 20

islands situated on either side of the equator in the Pacific Ocean,

600km off the Ecuadorean coast.

The archipelago was created through volcanic eruptions millions of

years ago as land masses slowly emerged and life subsequently

followed. It’s assumed that the first animals to arrive, probably

turtles and iguanas, hitched a ride on flotsam and the flora appeared

via seeds dropped by birds or blown in by the breeze. The rest, as

they say, is history!

The species grew in variety and numbers but many were almost

wiped out 200 years ago as pirates and whalers failed to appreciate

the uniqueness of the Galapagos and simply ate their way through

most of the nutritious turtles and tortoises.

Nowadays, thankfully, there is a passionate commitment to

protection and conservation with sustainability also crucial for a

secure future. In other words, they do what is right for them and

their region.

Sadly, the other three Ecuador regions (the Highlands, the Coast

and the Amazon Forest) are much less enlightened. The level of

deforestation is one of the highest in the world; just under 2% of the

original forest remains. In the last ten years, over 70% of the coastal

mangroves have been destroyed by the shrimp industry; oil

production (the cause of a war with Peru) has caused huge

destruction and soon mining will further worsen the ecological

balance.

So, while applauding the wonderful efforts made in the Galapagos

to safeguard their endemic species, the destruction in the other

regions continues relatively unabated.

I suppose really it's the old adage to blame: short-term gain is the

Giant tortoise keeping cool

order of the day rather than planning for the long-term.

Ecuador is a wonderful, diverse country that has an abundance of

natural resources sufficient to make its entire population wealthy,

sadly exploitation and corruption have syphoned off the majority of

the income.

We are all unhappy with politicians in the UK for their collective

failure to manage Brexit, but, compared to the lack of governance in

South America, we have little cause to worry.

The Galapagos remains a "bucket-list" destination and I wouldn't

have wanted to miss seeing a blue-footed booby hatch or swimming

with hammer-head and reef sharks. The real irony is that the long

term success of the country would be enhanced by policies similar to

those in place in the Galapagos region. There is plenty of room for a

balance between exploitation and conservation.

It’s a shame that saving a unique rainforest and the indigenous

people who have lived there since well before Spanish colonisation

doesn’t seem to capture the world’s imagination in the same way

that breeding giant tortoises does.

In the UK, it shouldn't be about stopping every new initiative but

ensuring that new developments bring both economic and

environmental benefits so incomes can be earned and our futures

can be safeguarded. I now feel I understand that balance better;

managing the contradiction is another matter.

N an effort to make the Peak District more accessible to

young people and their families, leading youth charity YHA

has published details of public transport links to its youth

hostels in the National Park.

Almost half of the country's most socially deprived areas are

more than 15 miles by road from ten national parks, and research

by the Campaign to Protect Rural England found that the

country's poorest people are being denied access to these parks

because they don't have access to a car. Only one in ten journeys

to national parks are made by another mode of transport.

Choral Society date

CHESTERFIELD Co-operative Choral Society is inviting people to

join them at the Winding Wheel for Karl Jenkins' epic ‘Symphonic

Adiemus’ on Saturday, 15th June, at 7.30pm, as part of a project

Lee steps into panto role

C

HESTERFIELD Theatres have announced that Lee Latchford-Evans from pop group

Steps will headline this year’s pantomime, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, at the

Pomegranate Theatre.

Lee joined pop phenomenon Steps in 1997 and achieved huge success with the band selling in

excess of 21 million records worldwide and winning numerous awards including the prestigious

BRIT award for Best Live Act in 2000.

After a decade apart pursuing individual projects, Steps reformed in 2011 with top-rated fly-onthe

wall documentary ‘Steps Reunion’. The overwhelming popularity with which Steps’ return was

received sparked a second TV series, ‘Steps on the Road’, a sell-out arena tour and a No 1 album.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2017, Steps released their fifth studio album, ‘Tears on the

Dancefloor’ which, again, topped the charts, and had a sell-out arena tour, Party on the

Dancefloor, leading to their outdoor Summer of Steps Tour in 2018.

Away from the band, experienced actor Lee has also starred in musicals in London’s West End

including playing Teen Angel in ‘Grease’, Niko Nikovsky in ‘Eurobeat’ and touring with the stage

version of ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. Lee’s feature films include ‘Cash & Curry’, ‘The Rizen’,

‘DeadRinger’ and, most recently, horror comedy ‘Paintball Massacre’ He has also starred in

numerous other pantomimes throughout the UK.

A

T last, our 50-year old divorce laws are to be overhauled,

putting an end to the enforced attribution of blame

expected of separating couples.

In April, the justice secretary announced the introduction of nofault

divorce and new legislation is now being considered by

parliament that will update our antiquated system.

Even if you make a mutual decision to part ways, currently one

spouse must prove one of five facts has taken place to cause the

‘irretrievable breakdown’ of a marriage.

You are forced to make allegations of adultery or unreasonable

behaviour, wait for a period of two years, with the consent of your

spouse, or five years without, or prove you have been deserted

before proceedings can progress.

This insistence we have to blame one another for the breakdown

of a marriage causes unnecessary hostility. Very few divorces are

contested by the other party and regardless, this is no way to save

a relationship. The practise has typically been used to exercise

control or coercive behaviour and therefore, the government is

proposing to remove it from law.

It is now accepted that, whilst we all wish to uphold the

institution of marriage, an outdated, fault-based divorce system no

longer reflects the way we live and the many forms relationships

take. Parental conflict has been proven to damage the wellbeing of

children and the imminent changes to the law are an entirely

positive step in this respect.

Proposals for the new divorce laws include:

• Retaining irretrievable breakdown as the sole ground for divorce;

• Replacing the need to blame one party with a statement of

irretrievable breakdown;

• Creating the option to submit a joint application for divorce,

whilst still allowing just one party to initiate the process;

• Removing the ability to contest a divorce.

I believe these changes will preserve what works within our

existing legislation and introduce a way to resolve difficulties in a

more amicable manner, helping couples reach a dignified end to a

marriage.

Pan-Roasted Pigeon Breast

Chicken Supreme

T

HERE are deliberately not too many words with this month’s food review - we’ve

chosen to let the pictures of chef Mark Aisthorpe’s wonderful dishes do most of the

talking.

The Bull’s Head at Holymoorside is the venue, but Mark also runs The Barley Mow just down

the road in Wingerworth. I called in recently with wife Helen on a Tuesday evening and we

were surprised at just how many diners were already enjoying their meals. It could have been

a Friday or Saturday - word is certainly spreading!

The great thing about The Bull’s Head is that you can either tuck into quality pub classics - the

Steak and Ale Pie and Beer-Battered Fish and Chips are big favourites - or you can do as we did

and select from Mark’s tempting a-la-carte menu - with more daily specials on the blackboards.

After sending three of our magazines to press in a particularly busy week, Helen and I were

keen to celebrate and both found exciting-sounding dishes to help us along.

For starters, Helen selected the Pan-Roast Woodland Pigeon Breast, presented with Black

Pudding, Pea Puree, Air Pops, Truffle Oil and Afila Cress (£7.20). My choice was Pan Fried King

Scallops with Sweet Corn Puree, Sweet Corn Salsa and Crispy Chorizo was decorated with

wild garlic flowers (£8.50). Full of colour and beautifully presented, we can report they both

tasted every bit as good as they looked.

Mains saw Helen devour Sea Bass Fillets with Hassle Back Potatoes, Asparagus, Wild Garlic,

Fennel, Pickled Shiitake and Mustard Foam (£18) and I was thrilled with the flavours of my

Chicken Supreme Wrapped in Parma Ham with Leek & Garlic Mash, Silver-Skin Onions, Wild

Mushrooms and Red Wine Sauce (£14).

Still in the mood to celebrate - but both almost replete - we shared a dessert of Nougat Salted

Caramel Parfait with Caramelised Banana, Peanut Crumb and Dark Chocolate Ganache (£6).

All wonderful, beautifully-presented food and with excellent service. So take a look at these

pictures then check out the full menu at bullsheadholymoorside.co.uk We may see you there!

Taste of Jamaica

in Chesterfield

Fancy tucking into something different this weekend? Mike Firth has a suggestion

32

W

HEN it comes to trying new foods and flavours, Yvonne

Bointon soon discovered that Chesterfield folk are not quite

as adventurous as people were in her previous home city of

Nottingham.

However, she is on a mission to change all that and her home delivery

Caribbean cookery service has already won over a sizeable business of

delighted customers.

Said Yvonne: “Chesterfield isn’t the most diverse town and I didn’t

know how people would take the food I cook, but they seem to like it

and come back with orders for their particular favourites.”

Yvonne’s Paradise Kitchen operates from Brampton, delivering

traditional Jamaican dishes directly to the doors of food fans every

Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening. With recipes handed down from

her parents, Yvonne prides herself on using fresh produce from local

suppliers, marinated in her own special blends of herbs and spices.

I put her menu to the test one Friday teatime and, delivered from

Yvonne’s kitchen to my own, I was joined by curious wife Helen and

daughter Olivia in sampling some of the more popular creations.

Jamaican specialities Curried Mutton and Jerk Chicken were

particularly full of flavour, accompanied by another staple dish of the

Caribbean, Rice and Peas. The meat was very tender indeed.

My favourite, however, was Brown Stew Chicken, with more tender

meat falling from the bone in full-of-flavour, thick gravy and vegetables

(main picture). Helen, however, preferred a Chickpea and Spinach Curry,

cooked with spices, mixed peppers and garlic.

As a contrasting dish, we also thoroughly enjoyed savoury baked Meat

Patties filled with slightly spicy beef. Delicious!

What a lovely treat to experience a completely different teatime meal

with the family. All the food was beautifully cooked and had us perusing

Yvonne’s menu for “next time”.

Other popular creations include a Spicy Plantin and Mixed Bean Stew,

plus an Okra, Sweet Potato and Brown Lentil Stew, while also proving a

hit is Jamaica’s national dish - Ackee Fruit and Saltfish. Main dishes

start from £4,50, with sides from £1. As a special treat, order a slice of

Yvonne’s home-baked Rum Cake. Many creations are veggie and vegan.

The Final

David Bradley

Actor David Bradley, star of ‘Kes’,

is visiting the area for a special

showing of the legendary 1969 movie.

He answers Mike Firth’s questions

T

IME marches on, but can you believe it is

50 years since the award-winning made-in-

Yorkshire film ‘Kes’ was shown in cinemas?

David “Dai” Bradley played the lead role of

schoolboy Billy Casper, the “hopeless case” whose

life was transformed by a kestrel chick.

David is to be special guest at an anniversary

screening of the movie at Staveley Hall on

Saturday, 29th June. Doors open at 7pm and the

film begins an hour later. There will be an

opportunity to ask questions and David will also

have a selection of ‘Kes’ memorabilia for sale.

Tickets for the event can be booked at

www.bluebirdnorthevents.co.uk

How did you land the role of Billy Casper?

The director, Ken Loach, wanted to use real school

kids as opposed to young professional actors. With

author Barry Hines being a teacher, it seemed

appropriate to audition youngsters at schools he had taught -

particularly as they were schools where pupils had failed their 11+

examinations whose prospects were low and deemed colliery or

factory fodder.

Pupils from three schools took part in the general audition, and the

numbers were whittled down to around 36. Ken Loach invited them

along for a final audition at the best hotel in Barnsley. Some were

reading for Billy Casper (around five of us), others for the role of

Macdowall (the bully), and various small parts. Firstly, we read the

page scene prior to the fight on the coke, then Ken Loach wanted to

do an improvisation involving Billy acquiring a book from the library -

while knowing he wasn't a member - and how would he go about it.

A few days later, I received a hand-delivered letter offering me the

role of Billy Casper.

How long did it take to film?

For me, it was ten weeks; for the rest of the cast, eight, during school

summer holidays. This was because we needed to shoot the

sequences with the kestrel chicks as soon as possible, due to how

fast they were growing, and nearing first flight.

Also there were far more scenes with Billy, so filming continued

with me while all my school friends went back to school for

autumn term.

What was the reaction of your school pals

when you suddenly became famous?

I guess at the time of filming there might've been a certain amount

of envy, but because many of my mates were involved with ‘Kes’,

nothing really changed in so far as friendship was concerned. We

were all on cloud nine at the prospect of being part of the adventure.

30

When the film was released in 1970 (all of us having left school),

everyone was friendly and looking forward to seeing it. Thankfully,

it's always been that way whenever I bump into a school chum, and

we chat about the summer of '68. For all of us, it was a moment in

our lives that we cherish dearly.

Were you ever tempted to take up falconry?

Whilst enthralled by birds of prey in the wild, along with many

occasions visiting falconry centres, my professional life as an actor

predominated, and so I never really considered taking it further. Yet

part of me stills feels captivated by these wonderful birds whether

on TV via the odd documentary, or seeing them close up.

Incidentally, membership at the British Falconry Association after

the film was premiered increased by a staggering number, from

hundreds to well over 20,000!

Why do you think the film had such a huge appeal?

I guess because it was so authentic and resonated with young kids

who were so like Billy. Also, it challenged a lot of society issues

during the late 1960s/70s regarding problematic youth, a failing

education system and how youngsters - supposedly with low

prospects - lacked confidence due to disengaged teachers. As a

national newspaper announced at the time: ‘Good teachers will love

it, bad teachers will hate it.’

Parents, too, found it enlightening, and perhaps this helped them

to re-live and understand what it was like for young working-class

kids growing up. ‘Kes’ was part of a huge social revolution, and

reflected so much of the ills during this time; but it also

demonstrated that every kid has some form of talent if one

knows how to tap into it.


Didn’t you once write

a sequel to Kes?

On quite a few occasions, I've been

approached by film producers

interested in making a sequel, but

who never came up with a viable

story. All of them were predictable

and to a large extent stereotypical in

nature; basically the same story

with fewer redeeming assets.

I've always felt such a project

would be detrimental to Barry

Hines' outstanding novel, as well as

Ken Loach's brilliant adaptation, and

short-changing devoted fans.

What do you suspect might

have become of Billy Casper?

Who knows? One thing is for sure,

Billy was / is undoubtedly a survivor.

And he would've found something

meaningful, rather than accepting

his pre-conditioned lot in life.

In spite of the tragedy of losing his

beloved kestrel, Billy had an

outsider's instinct to eventually let go

and move on.

There's a Canadian poster advertising the film's release in the 70s

that best sums up Billy: "They beat him. They deprived him. They

ridiculed him. They broke his heart. But they couldn't break his

spirit!"

Why did you change your Christian name to Dai?

Quite simply, when I applied to join British Equity (the union for

actors), I was told another actor had the same name, and that it

meant they wouldn't accept me without choosing a different name.

The other David Bradley (perhaps best known for his role in the

Harry Potter films), has done pretty well for himself.

Watch the birdie! David Bradley with another feathered friend

Tw st

I recall when I phoned him back then and asked him to change his

name, because he was unknown, he told me to go away... only he

didn't use that term!

What projects do you have planned for this year?

I am currently working on a project, but alas sworn to secrecy. All

being well, by autumn we'll know if my endeavours have been

worthwhile.

It's a new challenge for me; one that has taken up quite a lot of

time. I'm hopeful it will appeal, but I can't say more at present.

Experience has taught me that one should take great care before

making any 'off the cuff' announcement.
