Local Community Continues the Youlgrave-Ypres Connection

The story of the connection between Youlgrave and Ypres begins in 1922 when Charles Waterhouse installed two stained glass windows and a banner in Youlgrave All Saints Church in memory of his brother Rennie Compton Waterhouse who was killed at Gallipoli in 1915.

The stained glass for the windows was gathered from the ruins in Ypres Cathedral in Belgium and now exists in the beautiful stained glass memorial windows. This has linked the communities of Ypres and Youlgrave since that time.

Volunteers needed for Armed Forces Charity

Nicky Loveday of SSAFA (formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and their Families Association) says: –

“At SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, we believe that the commitment of our Forces and their families deserves our lifelong support. So we provide practical, emotional and financial support to anyone who is serving or has ever served in the British Army, Royal Navy or the Royal Air Force and also to their families.”

Volunteers Needed for Matlock and Bakewell Groups

If you have an hour or two to spare on a regular basis, perhaps weekly or monthly, you might want to consider volunteering for one of the many valued community groups in the local area.

There is a luncheon club ‘The Imperial Good Food Club’ which meets at the Imperial Rooms in Matlock on a weekly basis and they can always do with an extra pair of hands.

If your community group has a project in mind that is about engaging their users in sport or physical activity then you might benefit from a one-to-one session with Edwina Archer who is the funding lead with Active Derbyshire. We have 30-minute slots available to book to talk about your project with Edwina.

The venue will be our meeting room in Bakewell. Please let us know at CVS if you are interested, the slots will be from 10.00 to 12.30. Tel 01629 812154.
