The Denefields Luncheon Club will be back in September as the Imperial Good Food Club and organisers are looking forward to seeing clients, both old and new at the new venue – Imperial Rooms in Matlock.
The Denefields Luncheon Club was awarded a grant from the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund in November last year to help them move to temporary premises while the community room at Denefields was updated. Once the renovations were complete it turned out there was a lack of space so the move to the Imperial Rooms became a permanent one. The new name was chosen by ballot and the Mayor Father Brian Smith will be coming on the 6
The new name for the club was chosen by ballot and the Mayor Father Brian Smith is coming on the 6th September to re-launch the Club. Members come to the weekly club as an opportunity to get out of the house and meet friends, do a bit of shopping, have a good meal and a good old chin wag.
New members are always welcome – the club is open every Tuesday from 11.45am and the cost is £4.50. The first session back is Tuesday 6th September.
The organisers (seen here celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday) are in need of new volunteers to help out – we would love to see you – it doesn’t have to be every week. If you are interested in either joining or volunteering please contact us – David Brown (01629 732585) – Chris Smith (01629 583512) – Sadie Packard (01629 584210)

Have you ever wondered about the statistics for your area? Maybe you need to gather evidence to show that your community is in need of something? Having some statistics could back up a funding application you’re writing – the Derbyshire Observatory is Derbyshire County Council’s online resource that holds all the statistics and data for the county and can be used to find information that could demonstrate why a project is needed.
The resource can take a bit of getting used to but the Policy Team at DCC has offered to run a half-day session for Derbyshire Dales Voluntary and Community Groups. To book your place contact Sarah Paisley on 01629 812154 or by email
