About us

Dovedale Dipper parking update

Due to the redevelopment of the Hartington Cheese Factory site we have arranged alternative car parking for this year's event.

By kind permission of Richard SHERRATT, we will be using a field off Leisure Lane at Hartington. Leisure Lane is a bridle path opposite the YHA on Hall Lane. This site is used for the parking of car at Hartington Wakes.

Please let any one you know who is entering or helping out on the day that this car parking should be used.

Free Dictionaries for Matlock Primary Schools

Matlock Rotary Club has given 69 copies of the Usborne Illustrated Dictionaries (rrp £12.99) to local primary schools in the Matlock area.

In age of increasing internet use it is still very important for children to develop a joy of books.

The dictionaries, which are aimed at children, are full of explanatory drawings, showing how things work. This makes them a valuable information source in school libraries.

The President of Matlock Rotary Club, Julian Hammond, said “I am very pleased that Matlock Rotary Club has been able to help local primary schools with their resources. The dictionaries will help children to understand how things work and will be really useful in project based learning.”

Julian Takes the Helm at Matlock Rotary Club

Julian Hammond, a retired solicitor and qualified ocean mariner, is the new President of Matlock Rotary Club.

Julian said “I am looking forward to steering the Rotary ship for the year ahead. We need new members and my aim for the year is to make being a member of the club a fun filled commitment to raising funds for local needs and charities, and for wider national and international good causes and responses to disasters. If anyone is interested in giving some time up for the community at large please visit our web site – www.matlockrotary.com to learn all about the club. “

Julian is supported by the new President Elect, Paul Edwards and the new Junior Vice President, Phil Pegg
