Small Changes

Helping you reduce plastic

Highfield House Farm are happy for you to bring your own reusable containers along when you shop, and they’ll put your meat and produce in there, rather than using disposable plastic.

Please note: the container must be hygienic, and Highfield House can’t take responsibility for this, so you do this at your own risk.

Highfield House Farm are looking at other ways to reduce the amount of plastic used in packaging. All their veg is sold loose, so no plastic packaging there.

Lesley Garrett

& The Phil

Doncaster-born super soprano Lesley Garrett returns for a very special, one-off summer concert with the Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir, 40 years after performing with them at the start of her career.

Lesley Garrett in Concert with the Phil takes place on Sat 29 June at the Winding Wheel. Tickets are £25 (cons £20), students and unemployed people and children (16 and under) £15, from Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre.

A new business to S40 Local

Laura Brennan is an OCN Level 3, fully insured dog groomer and works out out of her delightful cabin in the woods.

"I have trained at Furst Class Lounge which is an S41-based local business with a nationwide recognition for excellence. I have a great workload but am excited to be part of the S40 business gang!

"I've left a career as a teacher of 25 years and set up at the age of 48, a completely new life which is extremely rewarding and very exciting!

"Your VIP (Very Important Pet) will receive individual care and attention here at Horsewood Cabin. I'm lucky enough to have a two acre woodland as my back garden and Horsewood Cabin is located here, in my beautiful garden!

"I offer a relaxed, calm and caring service. Drop your furry friend off with me and you can get on with your life for a couple of hours with no town centre parking or waiting around. Your dog will have a stress-free experience with no anxiety of an all-day separation, and no caging or other dogs to unsettle your furry family friend.

"Since all our VIPs are unique, pricing will be determined based on breed, size, type of coat, regularity of grooming, temperament, etc ... plus any special requirements.

"My grooming services include a fresh warm-water bath with natural products, complete drying, sanitary clip & trim (Dog-zilian), ear cleaning, nail trimming, brushing out, styling either with Breed or Super Cute Pet Styling."
