This year is the 70th anniversary of the designation of the Peak District as the UK’s first National Park. BBC’s Countryfile has a special episode on Sunday 16 March, 6pm, featuring PDNP staff and volunteers, those who live and work across the Peak Park, and the wildlife and cultural heritage. The programme will also be available on BBC iplayer, after it has been broadcast.
Residents will be aware of how popular the pool has been since reopening. Demand both for monthly memberships and casual public swimming sessions has been huge – on top of reduced capacity under Covid regulations. To enhance access for Hathersage residents a number of tickets for public sessions – the 11am, 12 noon and 3pm sessions, and the 5pm session (except for Mondays and Wednesdays) – are being held back for residents. Access to these sessions are on a first-come-first-served basis on the door – with proof of Hathersage residency (a bill or some ID including your address). These are interim measures. We anticipate that, as lockdown measures ease and pool capacity increases demand for the pool will also ease – and a review of pool bookings/admissions will be undertaken.
All vacancies on the Parish Council have now been filled with new Councillors co-opted at the March and April 2021 meetings. You’ll find the full list of Hathersage Parish Councillors here.
