HAVE YOUR SAY ON ORAL HISTORY OF DUFFIELD
Over the next year (starting in November), an Oral history of Duffield will be collected on behalf of the
National Trust and Derwent WISE as part of their Duffield Castle project.
What will it involve?
Duffield residents and ex residents from all walks of life, age groups, genders and backgrounds will be invited
to talk and record their experience of living, working or being pupils in Duffield and what they know and feel
about the Castle.
By collecting people’s stories and memories in this way, we will all become important contributors to the
history of our own village and the tapes will be stored in the British Library Sound Archive for posterity.

SEARCH ON FOR VANDALS CAUSING DAMAGE AT CRICKET CLUB
I am writing to make the village aware of a number of vandalism incidents which have taken place over the
last few months, culminating in the destruction of four advertising boards on the evening of Friday 7th August.
This took place at 8.30pm in broad daylight and we are very much hoping that someone may have witnessed
the event. If so, please can they contact PC Paula Bennett, the local Police Officer.
