We're very grateful to the Labour and Liberal Democrat candidates, Ruth George and Charls Lawley, for again agreeing to join us. Again, we're dispappointed - having offered several alternative dates - that the Conservative candidate, Andrew Bingham, has confirmed he is unable to attend any husting in Hayfield. We hope, even now, that might change, but it seems unlikely. But this means there'll be more opportunity to hear from the remaining candidates and to establish their position on key issues.
We hope we'll get a good turnout for the husting and that you'll be among those attending. We'll send further information in due course.
And, coming up this weekend, let's not forget the celebrations taking place in the village. First, tomorrow, and throughout the weekend, are the 120th Anniversary celebrations of the Peak and Northern Footpath Society's erection of the signage to the Snake Path, up Ashop Clough and onto Kinder, meshed with the 85th anniversary of the Kinder Trespass. A feast of activities are on offer at The Royal hotel, with stalls, music and presentations, and with commemorative walks and Jazz in the Cricket Club on Sunday. Full details here:
And Hayfield Artists are also 'at home' at various venues around the village (The Packhorse, Ashlar on Market Street, and Throstle Farm, Little Hayfield, amongst the county-wide exhibitions of works, all part of Derbyshire Open Arts (long) weekend. Finally, Handmade Hayfield is hosting its regular exhibition of artisan- made-products at The Royal Hotel on Sunday, from 11-5.00p.m. It's all happening!
