You can order by category, products or by shop. Hathersage residents can place orders by 9am Monday for delivery on Wednesday between 6pm and 9pm; or by 9am Wednesday for delivery on Friday between 1pm and 4pm. Mindful of their carbon footprint, Hope Valley Vendors use solar powered electric vehicles for deliveries.

See the Hope Valley Vendors Press Release for full details.
Neil Fletcher became a member of Hathersage Parish Council in 1984 and was elected Chairman in 1993 following the resignation of Councillor Eric Beeley. He was a very hardworking and diligent Chairman for many years and the Parish Council will be eternally grateful to him for his many hours of research into the minutes of the council from which he produced the book “The First Hundred Years 1894 to 1994”, the proceeds of which went to the village Millennium Fund. As part of one of the Millennium Projects he also wrote an article for “Hathersage Remembers”, in which he recalled the activities of his younger days at Hathersage Swimming Pool, to which he cycled from his home in Grindleford. He met Jennifer Thompson, a local village girl; following their marriage they moved into Barnfields where their two children, Nicola and James, grew up. Jennifer developed multiple sclerosis soon after the birth of James and Neil very lovingly cared for her for many years. He had moved a few years ago to Castleton but will be fondly remembered by many, walking round the village with his sheepdog.
The management of Brookfield Manor have contacted Hathersage Parish Council this week about the abuse by some of the permissive path over their drive to where the public footpath from the allotments to Coggers Lane crosses it . . Access is permitted by Brookfield Manor for the residents of Hathersage to have passage over the land by the use of their gate controlled by a combination lock. It has been noted that some people have been walking dogs OFF the lead and this has led to a sheep being mauled and DOG FOULING of the land.
Please keep dogs on leads and clean up after your dog so that Residents are allowed to continue to use this convenient route.
The Parish Council are grateful to Brookfield Manor for allowing the residents of Hathersage this concession which is appreciated by many residents.
