Welcome to the July 2022 edition of The Barlborough, Clowne

&Renishaw Doorsteppa!

Above: No4Coffee House in Clowne

Welcome to theBarlborough,Clowne

&Renishaw Doorsteppa!

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the warm weather in June and got

into that communityspirit during the Jubilee Weekend. Lots of

you got in touch with stories and pictures of packed events, and

street parties, and it was great to see people out celebrating

after the last couple of years we’ve all had to endure.

We were delighted to meet with local volunteer Michelle

Taurins recently as she was recognised asaRoyal Platinum

Champion! Congratulations to Michelle, who has been a

volunteerfor over 10 years. We got to hear herstory of how the

award came about. Turn to our Charity section on page 40 for

all the info.

There are details of local boy, Charlie, who was diagnosed with

Muscular DystrophyDuchenne whenhewas 4. His parents best

friend Nicola Hinchcliffe has set up a Justgiving Page for

donations aiming to raise funds for awheelchair. This will

enable Charlie to have arelatively normal day to day life. Please

see our Community section on Page 34for more on how you

canhelp.

It was great to catch up with Andy, the owner at No 4Coffee

House in Clowne (seeabove). Many locals will remember fondly

the Toy Shop that was there before and we delve into

the history ofthe building as well as the positive changes

Andy and his team have made at No 4. Check out page22for the

details.

Beneficialchanges are underway covering more thanone

aspect of your life. Recent times haveleft you wondering,worrying

and, sometimes,downright dispirited, but finally you’re facingacalmer

existence. Nothing’s going to happen atthe snap of your fingers

however, slowly but surely, situations improve. One event is set to

ignite your heart withapassionhitherto unknown! Use all thelessons

lifehas taughtyou recently and all will be well. Enjoy yourself!

TAROTSCOPES

LIBRA 24 September -23October

Many choices are placed before you but don’t make any

hastydecisions regarding acceptance just yet.For now it would be

better to takeyour timeand ensure you readall thesmall print

before committing to anything. Don’t allow wishful thinking to take

over as one offer certainlyisn’tall that it’s cracked up to be. Slow

and steady wins therace! Exercising patience and being

methodical in your approach leads to contentment. Eventually!

TAURUS 21 April -21May

Prepareyourself as life gains momentum. Communications

arrive thickand fast and there could be atouchofromance

surrounding some of them.This is great as there are also

celebrations in theair. Wherever theinvitation to party arrives from

be sure to get your glad rags on and enjoy thecamaraderieofthe

event. Whilst there are no guarantees of ahappy ever after,nor of

an uneventfuljourney, something wonderful starts here.

GEMINI 22 May -21June

You’ve reached the mid-point of an argument which has gone

on long enough and now needs to be put to bed onceand forall.

Someone is going to bring all their might to beartoproveapoint

and you may feel browbeaten. Haveyour saythen move away!

You’renot conceding anything and time will prove you right but for

now put your energies into something that, with effort, willbring

you success.

SCORPIO 24 October -22November

More than one situation seemingly in atangle? Fear not;

you’re more than capable of sorting things out. It’sgoing to needa

mixtureofpatience, applying your own standards and going with

what you feel comfortable with, and getting ahelping hand from

The Universe. What is it you really, and truly, would like? There’s

agood chance you’llget it now. Have faiththingsare better than

theyappear and you can prevail.

SAGITTARIUS 23 November -21December

Financially errorshavebeenmade; either physically or thoseof

judgement, and you could now find yourself feeling atad isolated

and unsure where to go next.Scrutinise accountsand check

everything; twice!! Someonecould appear to offeryou the world but,

again, checkthe small print as not everything promised will come to

fruition.Toensure success make alistand complete one job at a

timecarefullypayingattention to EVERYminute detail.

CANCER 22 June -23July

Time to move away from the past. You’re encouraged to

make sweeping changes allowing space for new experiences.

Don’t let fear hold you back but be careful with the decisions you

make. One opportunity presenting itself isn’t as good as it appears.

Be prepared to helpothers along your way knowing that your

efforts willberepaid in your time of need. Balance mind, body, and

spiritwithrest, good diet,exercise, and mental stimulation.

LEO 24 July-23 August

Happiness, joy, and delight, are yours for the taking. Why

wouldn’t they be? You’ve added your two’ penneth and been

proven right in more than one situation. Now it’s time to help others

along their path and othersWILLlook foryourguidance. You’re

more than capable and your wisdom and judgement know no

bounds. That said, beware you may feel trapped helping others

with no concern forwhat makes you tick. You’ve been warned!

CAPRICORN 22 December -20January

Career and business again! Contemplate where you are,how

you got there, anddon’t be afraid to let some things go. The relief

felt at theirpassing will be welcome. You need to maintain a

balance between head and heart or perhaps that should be your

income and expenditure. This isn’t atime for frivolity with hard

earned cash! New learning will increase thecofferseventually but

you’ll need to put thetime in first.

AQUARIUS 21 January -19February

You may need to balance thefinancesnow so perhaps some

thought should be given as to how your financial futureisgoing to

shape up. Aheartfelt conversation holds much promise but it does

depend on bothparties speaking their truth and listening to the

responses made. The air is cleared and relief felt all round. Hard

work and attention to detail elevates your status and gives asolid

platform from which to grow.

VIRGO 24 August-23 September

Nostalgiatakes hold as atripdown memorylane is

unavoidable. Someone could be out to cause mischief so keep

your eyes open and your mouth closed. Not everyone is who they

say they are. However, thereare genuine feelings of good will

surrounding you and Karmaensures you’rerepaidfor past good

deeds. From then on move away from the past.It’stime foranew

start and this time it’s all about you.

PISCES 20 February -20March

Using your head rather than your heart is key and getting

agreements in writing is paramount. Someone provides an

emotional support network but thepractical stuffisyours. Changes

around you suggest you’ll be willingtograspthe nettlewith

determination and move forward. You’ll always help those less

fortunate asyou know Karma will repay you in time but know

where to draw theline. Do not let anyone take you for afool!

Radford’s Grocery Store. Itremained as

aGrocer and Corn Factors, under the

local people have fond memories of

going to Barbara’s shop to get the latest

toy or game,ortoget their bike repaired.

It was during 2016 that the building was

converted into acaféand tearoom which

opened in 2017. The restoration was

carried out sympathetically with many

original featuresleft intact.Visitors today

can still be served over the original toy

Let’s raise £10,700 to Fund anew wheelchair for Charlie

which will enable him to carry on doing day to day activities.

Nicola Hinchcliffeisraising moneytohelp herbestfriends

sonCharlie, aged 10.

Local boy, Charlie, was diagnosed with Muscular

Dystrophy Duchenne when he was 4years old. He now

requires a wheelchair to enable him to have a normal day

to daylife.

His Mum Zoe, Dad Lee, and Sister Heidi, along with their

extended family work so hard to ensure he experiences

all thethings thatother children of his agedo.

The new wheelchair they require will grow with Charlie

and enable him to use it on all terrains. Off road, sand,

snow as well as the usual pathways, which means he can

still continue his day to dayactivities.

Nicola has setupaJustgivingpage for donations so please

In this, the year of Her Majesty the

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, local

volunteer Michelle Taurins has been

awarded aPlatinum Champions Award

from the RoyalVoluntary Service for her

outstanding contributions as a

volunteer.Inhonour of their patron, Her

Majesty the Queen and the great

example she has set inher 70 years of

service, the Royal Volunteer Service

launched the Awards as part of national

Jubilee celebrations. Out of over 3,000

applicants, only 490 were handpicked for

awards by ajudging panel presided over

by the Duchess of Cornwall, and there

were only 3awarded inthe whole of

Sheffield!

Here at Doorsteppa we have worked

with Michelle for some time and it is no

surprise thatshe wasone of theindividuals

crowned aPlatinum Champion! This is an

incredible achievement and to celebrate,

we met with Michelle at The New Hope

Community Church on Old Lane in

Holbrook, where wediscussed her years

of volunteering, the creation of the New

Hope CommunityChurchfoodbank, and

the New Hope Furniture Project.

For over 10 years, Michelle has travelled

over 40 miles from her home inNewark

to help out every day. Michelle shared

with me that towards the end of 2011,

she felt Godcalling her to the New Hope

Community Church. She was self

employedatthe timeand came on board

dedicating her time in2012. After just a

few months, she began to look into how

feasible it would be to start alocal food

bank to help those in need inthe community.

Michelle and her team

discovered that there was nowhere

within a6mile radius of the Churchthat

provided this service to the vulnerable in

the community. They discovered that

people locally, who were already in

need, had to spend over £5.00 to get to

the nearest food bank. After several

months of studying different existing

models set upbyother organisations,

Michelle took the best practices from

each and setupasystem distributing

40

Local volunteer recognised asaRoyal Platinum Champion

for her outstanding contributions!

food to local homes that needed support

and help.

Then came the jobofvisiting all the local

supermarkets, getting donation bins

installed wherever possible to allow

shoppers to conveniently donate food

when shopping. Very quickly, the food

donations began to come in and the

Church were able to expand their

referral base. They made apromise to

deliver food within 24 hours of referral.

In order to achieve this, they partnered

with other churches -Dronfield Oaks,

EckingtonOaks, Spa View Hackenthorpe,

and Swallownest Baptist Church. The

deliveriesarrived on the Monday,goout

to the respective Churches and it’s then

distributed to homes within the 24 hour

window!

Back then, meetings took place atthe

Methodist Church inKillamarsh but as

the organisation and donations grew, it

was obvious that New Hope needed a

building of their own. Alady from the

Co-Op happened to come tovisit and

mentioned toMichelle that anoption

may be to look into taking over

otherwise unused Co-Op buildings.

Looking at several different places and

eventually finding the building at Old

Lane Holbrook in 2015, New Hope

approached Derbyshire County Council.

Michelle said, “After several prayers

outside, we were given the unit we

wanted!” Painting and refurbishing

throughout the building, New Hope

became the destination we know today,

with both the Charity Shop and Coffee

Shop openand welcoming to the public.

In 2015,referrers intothe food bank began

to ask if New Hope had any furniture

available. This led to the creation of the

New Hope Furniture Project.

Michelle told us, “It all started by going

into Center Parcs once a year. They

refurbish on average 69units annually

and wewere given access to go in and

take anything that wethought would be

useful. We now also receive many kind

donations. Working by referral and

under direction from front-line care

professionals, we will provide free of

charge ‘house-packs’ including beds,

wardrobes, dining table and chairs,

microwave, and other essential household

items which are required to reduce need,

hardship or distress, helping to turn a

house into ahome.” These packs go outto

the homeless getting their first home, and

peoplefleeing domestic violence.

Michelle is avery warmand modestlady

and just before Ileft she said, “I want to

emphasise that this award was given to

me but it’sfor allthe volunteershere.I’m

only as good as my team and they all go

above and beyond on adaily basis.Ilove

what Ido. There is nothing better than

giving and helping people who need it.

Meeting people at their point of crisis

andmaking adifference -it’saprivilege!”

Congratulations Michelle! Here at

Doorsteppa we all agree the award is

richly deserved and we know that you

will continue to make a positive

difference in thelocal community.

Dubai isthe perfect family destination, with a

multitude of activities, eateries and theme

parks for all the family to enjoy together.

Winter time, from November toApril, is the

besttime to visit.

Waterparks

Dubai’s waterparks have something for all

ages. From the thrilling rides for adrenaline

junkies to idyllic beaches for those who like a

slower pace oflife, here are some ofthe best

waterparks to visit:

2

•Legoland Water Park caters for children all

ages.There’saDuplo Splash Safari for toddlers,

while other slides provide thrills for the bigger

children. At‘Build-A-Boat’, children can even

construct aboat and test it on the water. This

waterpark isperfect for those with children

aged 2 to 12 with plenty of interactive

experiences.

•The biggestwaterparkinDubai,Aquaventure

is made up of two main towers, Poseidon and

Neptune, connected byagiant lazy river that

transports riders between slides. For those

with astrong stomach, try the Leap ofFaith, a

wide-open near-verticaldrop!

•AquaFun is the region’s biggest inflatable

waterpark with 74 games totry along the fun

course. Italso features some of the world’s

longest and highest water slides.

•Splash Pad at The Beach isperfect for little

ones with its fountains, tipper bucket and

climbing frames. There’s also plenty of

entertainment nearby to keep you busy into

the evening.

Friday Brunch

Dubai’s working week spans Sunday to

Thursday so Friday is the time to kick back and

enjoy adelicious family-friendly brunch:

•The Ultimate Friday Brunch takes place at

Flow Kitchen atFairmont the Palm. There’s a

selection of healthy bites, Middle Eastern

classics and delicious roasts from live cooking

stations. The little ones can stay entertained

with activities suchasfacepaintingand fun arts

and crafts.

•Brunch atAtmosphere, onlevel 122 of the

Burj Khalifa tower is one of those ‘only in

Dubai’ experiences! Itonly takes place four

times ayear, but the extraordinary views and

15 dishes make it unmissable!

•Lock, Stock &Barrel specialises indelicious

southern US fare and the delicious brunch

features classics such asmac ‘n’ cheese balls,

buffalo wings and beef sliders, all at

wallet-friendly prices.

Kids rule at Kidzania!

Located inside the Dubai Mall, Kidzania is a

place where children can work, play and

pretend in this made up town where they’re in

charge! There are over 80-role playing activities

and 60 city establishments where children can

build essential real-life skills. On arrival,

children begin at the airport with aboarding

pass and 50 kidzos (the Kidzania currency).

They can head to the bank, cash their checks

and hit the streets to explore.Theycan work to

earn more money in avariety of roles such as

firefighter or beautician and then treat

themselves to things like shopping sprees and

entertainment. They’ve earned it!

Something alittledifferent

If the family have had enough ofall the usual

sun, sea and sand-based activities, here are a

few ideasfor something alittle different…

•OliOli is afresh conceptfor children aged two

to 11 which is split into eight themedgalleries.

From Toshi’s Net,acolourfulhanging play area,

to launching cannonballs inthe Water Gallery

and tinkering in the Creative Lab, there’splenty

to keep little ones occupied!

• A unique shopping experience, City Walk

fuses entertainment, shopping and dining. Try

Hub Zero for avirtual gaming experience or

plants andanimals!

virtual reality with options for all the family.
