BATTLING TO SAVE SCHOOL CROSSING PATROLS
Do you want to do what you can to keep the school crossing patrols at William Gilbert and the Meadows School in the
village and convince Derbyshire County not to close them down to save money?
If you do you have got a few weeks to add yourself to theever growing list of objectors to the scheme revealed last
August when the County Council announced: “Unless alternative ways of funding the service or individual sites can be
found all of our patrols could possibly end in 2015.”
It appears nothing has changed since and the Council has announced the consultation process will close on April 21st.
Hundreds signed a petition in August supporting Duffield lollipop lady, mother of threeJo Lacey, to keep the patrols.

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.
