Gleaming Gargoyles conclude campaign in Duffield darkness
What a fine way to finish the Gargoyles’ 2018 season with yet another nail-biter. A full-scale team performance with every player sparkling, lighting up the Gargoyles gallery of heroes.
A big thank you to the people in Alstonefield…
who signed the petition to support a traffic restriction order on the lane linking the Manifold Valley and Back of Ecton.
Susan Reiblein has told us that as a result of all the support gained, on 7th September, the Peak Park Planning Committee supported the proposal to put a permanent restriction on motorised traffic including 4*4 and scramble bikes travelling on this green lane.
Hopefully this beautiful valley will be able to restore itself to its former tranquil glory.
