Thursday 7th Over Haddon

The morning seemed to pass with the usual bits that needed to be done. and catching up on emails and phone calls from yesterday as we did not get back until very late. In the afternoon Chris went to Over Haddon for a photography course which is led by a local man on an informal basis. Over Haddon I consider to be our ‘adopted village’. In theory we live in the parish of Bakewell, the last dwelling in Bakewell on the Monyash Road, but we are more involved with Over Haddon. I belong to the Over Haddon W.I, Chris goes to the photography course and we support other village events when we can. I write an article for the Over Haddon newsletter and we try and support the cinema club. Most villages around here have a monthly cinema club and the projector does the rounds but Over Haddon has successfully applied for a grant to purchase its own. Like many villages there is a ‘core’ of villagers that keep things going. The hot issue at the moment is the refurbishment or replacement of the village hall. It is 50 years old and has its problems due to its age. It must also be one of the village halls with the best views in the UK! Another day gone and much to do. Must catch up with he accounts.
