At first glance, when I saw the photograph of St Wystan's Church outing, sent in by Joan and Peter Biddulph, (Bygones, January 20) I thought it was one of our group. It is very similar to the photograph I am enclosing of a trip from our church at Hartshorne, taken around that time, maybe 1952-53. The second child from the left, on the front row, is my niece, Carole Murden. My mother and myself are on the left of the back row. I hope there will be someone else who still remembers that outing to Trentham Gardens. The lady on the left of the front row is a Miss Whitehouse, who kept a small shop on the corner of Woodville Road and Main Street, Hartshorne, for many years. It would be nice if more country people from South Derbyshire wrote to Bygones, making it still more interesting.

1,000 in grants for village

A village is to benefit from 2,000 in grants. Hartshorne has received two 1,000 grants from the Coal Fields Rural Initiative Fund. One is for improvements to St Peter's Church hall, on Manchester Lane. The other will fund visits to the area from Derbyshire Association for the Blind's mobile resource centre. Money in fund comes from Derbyshire County Council, South Derbyshire District Council, Hartshorne Parish Council and the East Midlands Development Agency. Dick Garwell, chairman of the Derbyshire Rural Community Council which manages the fund, said: "Neither scheme would be possible without the grants. Hartshorne residents will reap the benefits of both."

Bid for patrol funding

Uniformed wardens are set to work alongside police in patrolling troublespots in south Derbyshire. The proposal is part of a 150,000 scheme to reduce vandalism, nuisance on the streets and the fear of crime. A bid is to be submitted to the Home Office this week for around 75,000 to finance the Neighbourhood Warden Scheme over three years. The rest of the funding would be provided by partners including South Derbyshire District Council and Derbyshire police. If the bid is successful, three wardens will be employed by the council to patrol known hotspots in Swadlincote, Newhall, Church Gresley, Midway, Woodville and the Goseley estate in Hartshorne. They would work in pairs, travelling in a marked vehicle between 6pm and midnight, initially from Thursday to Sunday.
