Douglas Appleyard (Dublin, Ireland) is searching for information about Farrah Hall and Lord Scarsdale who lived there
in 17 and 1800s.
He asks: Are there any extant early photos of Farrah Hall, outside or inside?
Are there any good books about the area that might throw some light on the first half of 19th century?
Is there anyone who knows of Lord Scarsdale’s employment records?
If you assist Douglas in his search, please contact him via this email link.
DUFFIELD VILLAGE POPPY APPEAL
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the Duffield village poppy appeal this year. Contributions in this
centenary year were up by >£550 compared to 2013. Final total was £4456. Well done Duffield, an excellent effort for
a small village.
A special thank you goes to the Co-op store manager and staff for supporting the welcome return of a Poppy stand in
store. Thank you also to all the shops and businesses who kindly agreed to take a Poppy tin, your contribution
however big or small is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to the volunteers who manned the stall in the Co-op, including John Redfern, Dawn Narborough, Laura
Stone and the members of the Rotary Club from Belper. I also need to thank Steve Everington for his sterling stint
outside the Meadowvale store in foul weather the saturday before Remembrance day. You are a trooper.
Thank you also to the Weston centre staff, Liz Page and Nick Storer for your help with the distribution of the poppy
wreathes, and for once again organising a wonderful parade and Remembrance Day service.
