Kick Start Christmas
Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir’s Christmas Concert will be held this year on Sunday 15 December, 2:30pm at St. Mary’s and All Saints Church (The Crooked Spire).
Why not join them, take the family along and get Christmas off to a festive start!
Steven Roberts will be conducting with piano accompaniment from Liz Heath. Prices are adults £12 and students, unemployed and children (under 16) £6. Tickets can be obtained from www.chestphilchoir.org.uk, choir members and Chesterfield TIC.
Under new management 'Thai Thai' is looking forward to a bright future. With Chairat Kongkasmut at the helm, the old Siam Palace at 9 Lordsmith Street just a short walk down from St Mary's Church (the one with the twisted spire) is set to become the go to destination for an authentic taste of Thailand for Chesterfield's good food lovers.
Once you've climbed the steps you are greeted by a Thailand street scene, a restaurant like no other in town.
First change is the introduction of a Curry Night every Wednesday. On offer are a range of authentic currys, Gaeng Kiew Wan for instance, which the menu describes as, a choice of meat in an aromatic flavour of green curry paste, coconut milk, aubergines, bamboo shoots, green beans and carrot enhanced with the flavour of kiffir lime leaves and sweet basil - just one of the selection on offer.
Trip Advisor comments include;
"An interesting journey up the stairs takes you up to a spotless Thai restaurant."
"Excellent Thai Food & Other-Worldly Restaurant"
9 Lordsmith Street, S41 7RW.

Thyme To Eat
Go Plastic Free
Plastic Free Chesterfield are working hard with local businesses to encourage use of single use plastics.
We've talked in a previous edition about the Surfers Against Sewage initiative, where businesses are rewarded for removing three items of single-use plastic such as drinking straws, takeaway cutlery and plastic bags.
Greg Hewitt, from Plastic Free Chesterfield, recently presented a Plastic Free award to Thyme to Eat, making them a Plastic Free Champion.
Sharon Ocarroll from Thyme to Eat says, "We've looked at many of our key products and cut out the single use plastic, we're using paper straws, degradable take out boxes, paper bags, selling drinks that are not in plastic bottles and providing degradable take-out cutlery.
"It's great to support Plastic Free Chesterfield and our certificate and award are proudly displayed inside the cafe."
We'll keep you posted on Plastic Free Chesterfield's progress as more businesses step up to the mark and make changes for the good of the environment.
