This will be a rather bitty little piece, with odds and ends of news tying up ends.
Firstly, the DRCS Shopping Fair mentioned a couple of weeks ago was a great success, raising an amazing £5,000 for the Derwent Rural Counselling Service that we, the Friends of DRCS, support. It was hard work, but great fun and there is many a household locally where the Christmas shopping has been at least started very painlessly; as many more households it must be said where the inhabitants are suddenly sporting some rather fetching new garments.

Lots of exciting ideas emerged during the meetings and we all came away feeling very enthused.

Douglas’s Barn is available for last minute bookings between 2 and 23 March 2018. Why not treat yourself to an early Spring Break in the lovely Peak District.

Still chance to surprise you Valentine with a couple of days away in the Peak District. Douglas’s Barn is available for a mid week break. Cake and a romantic barn awaits. Worth sneaking off from work for a couple of nights
