VJ Day Reflective Ceremony The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of hostilities in both Europe (8th May 1945) and in Japan (15th August 1945). These are important milestones in the history of our country and the Cutthorpe Matters Village Charity would like you to join us on 15th August to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who ensured that we can live our lives freely today, Outline of events: 10.45 Introduction & song (Land of Hope and Glory) 11.00 Last Post / One Minute silence 11.05 A Cry for Peace Around the World 11.10 Peace Prayer – Tribute to the millions 11.15 Song (Rule Britannia) Bacon sandwiches and hot drinks will be available in the Three Merry Lads car park from 11.30 am VJ Day Celebrations - Well Dressing - Scarecrows Following the cancellation of large scale celebrations for VE Day, Saturday 15th August 2020 gives us another opportunity to pay tribute to and remember the enormous sacrifices made at home and aboard to bring peace to our country, which culminated with the end of hostilities with Japan on the 15th August 1945. Once again the government intends to arrange simultaneous events throughout the country on this day. Well Dressings Along with the still flexible arrangements for the day it has been suggested that we make the most of the celebrations by making our own small versions of the Well Dressing, which can be displayed either throughout the village outside our houses, or possibly gathered as a ‘gallery’ somewhere, to be decided. Given that the normal use of wet clay in a frame will not be available to many it is suggested that anyone interested can make use of other materials they may have to hand or can easily acquire, e.g. fabric, buttons, ribbons, wool, etc. If you do want to use flowers, leaves etc, remember they will need to be able to be supported in some way and kept moist - Oasis (used by flower arrangers) could be used with flower heads, not petals, which wouldn’t stick, or if you do want some clay to put in a small frame it may be possible to use some of the clay that is taken off and stored after the well dressing is taken down each year. Clay needs to be ‘puddled’ - soaked for a week in water and stirred every day to make it the right consistency to stick in a frame and allow flowers and petals etc to be pressed into it. Ask Hilary (07973 429974) if clay is available. Scarecrows We are also planning to have a display of scarecrows so get your thinking hats on and give some consideration to what you could make. It would be great for as many of us as possible to brighten up the village and give everyone something to smile about.

Men’s Shed

It has been suggested that a ‘Men’s Shed’ could be set up in the village, based on the Men’s Sheds Association format. It would provide a community space for men of all ages to connect, converse and create. Apart from the social aspect it would bring together a fantastic core of collective knowledge for repairing and making items and of course for men to enjoy themselves! Currently the idea is in it’s infancy, with no formal organisation or premises, so the first steps are to set up a steering group and organise a meeting (safely distanced, probably in a garden) to discuss the way forward. Graham Harrison has set up a Cutthorpe Shed Club WhatsApp group that you can join to keep informed. So if you are interested in getting involved or just finding out more contact Graham on 07920 040129. Thursday NHS & Carers Thursday Clap This has now ended but you can see a few photos of some of us in Main Road taking part during the last few weeks - Gallery 2020.

News

Pub News

Some good news for those of you who have sorely missed the ability to see and chat to friends over a friendly pint (or two). These are very hard times for the hospitality trade and pubs will depend on your support to remain open so please bear with them as they and we adjust to the ‘new normal’. Government guidelines and distancing rules apply throughout. Three Merry Lads BJ and Dawn are re-opening the pub at 2.00 pm on Saturday 4th July. The kitchen will be closed to start with until they get official guidelines from the brewery. Opening times are Saturday, 2.00 pm, Sunday 12.00, Monday - Thursday 4.00 pm, Friday 3.00 pm. Closing times will obviously be dependent on customer uptake. The rules are still being worked out but regular customers may book a table (maximum 6 per table) inside and out - 01246 390140. No sitting or standing at the bar, all dogs on leads and children sat at tables. There may be a designated area for drinks and snacks to be ordered and collected. The Peacock Charlotte will also be re-opening on the 4th of July. There will be a few changes around the building with a one way system in place and signage to make things as easy as they can. Opening times are as near normal as possible. Customers are encouraged to book tables in advance for both indoor and outdoor areas. The seating area within the building is reduced so please try and use the outdoor area in fair weather, There is a smaller menu and no Sunday roast will be available until further notice. Table service is in operation for the inside and outdoor areas and you will be greeted and seated by a member of the team. You can book your table through Messenger or ring on 01246 563669

Environmental Tips for Cutthorpe

John Robinson’s Dining and Discussion group recently had a discussion on What we can do in Cutthorpe to help the Environment. This produced a list of ideas which can be downloaded here.

Parish Council News

The latest draft of the Neighbourhood Plan is now accessible via a link from the Brampton Parish Council website - bramptonparishcouncil.org. Everyone is encouraged to read the plan and send comments by email to steeringgroupbrampton@gmail.com or in writing to Steering Group Brampton, Old Hall Farm, Main Road, Cutthorpe, Chesterfield, S42 7AJ. As it is not currently possible to hold a referendum on this plans that are approved and adopted by the Parish Council will have legal force so it is important that, before the Parish Council considers the plan in final detail, as many views as possible are obtained to ensure the Steering Group has accurately captured the views of residents. Cutthorpe Institute (currently closed due to Covid-19) It is with some frustration that we still haven’t been able to complete on the purchase of the Institute, the funds are all in place, but currently the sellers are insisting on a number of covenants and we need to be sure that these will not place onerous financial obligations on the Parish Council for generations to come.
