Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

‘Champagne & Shopping’

This will only be of interest to local friends and readers of our blog but I can’t resist sharing a tip/putting in a plug for this event.

The 2010 annual DRCS Shopping Fair takes place this week at the Maynard in Grindleford (S32 2HE for those reliant on a Satnav.)

Om Wednesday between 4 – 8 pm will be the ‘preview’ with sparkling wine, canapes and the chance to have the pick of all the exciting things for sale – plus the chance of possibly winning a diamond…! Tickets £10 per person.

The fair continues all day Thursday from 10 to 4: no champagne or canapes but snacks and drinks available from the hotel itself. Tickets for the day £5 (Or £2.50 if purchased in advance – let me know via the blog or email and I can arrange it)..

The Derwent Rural Counselling Service (DRCS) is a small but well-respected charity based it Bakewell, which provides professional counselling for local people. Last year approximately 3,000 hours of counselling were provided. Clients are asked for a donation which represents roughly 25% of the cost of providing the counselling hence the constant need for funds.

The Friends of DRCS (I am one!) work hard to support the service. We have organised this event, and next month a Comic Revue which also will be an excellent event. (John and I both appear on the stage but there are also many more extremely talented genuine pros. More about that later.
