Handmade by Helen are the latest business to join us at Old Bolsover Yard taking a space in our Gallery.
Based in Cresswell Helen makes an array of wonderful crocheted items including hats, head warmers and blankets to name a few.
She has recently been recognised as a Plastic Free Business Champion which is reflected in the latest additions to her range which include re-useable face scrubbies and metal straws in crocheted storage bags to help you reduce your single-use items.
Bolsover FiverFest returns
Fiverfest is slowly creeping up on us with the official launch, on 15th February, not far away.
Organised as part of the national Totally Locally campaign keep a look out for the offer posters throughout the town.
Last time 29 small independent businesses had a number of £5 offers throughout the week. This February FiverFest will last for a whole fortnight!
Uncovering the past of Old Bolsover Yard
The heritage project will focus on the working lives of the Towns butchers and ancillary businesses that provided the community with its meat and food. Little is known about this area so we are seeking to uncover more of the stories from the community.
We are also going to explore what lies beneath the yard by offering a community dig looking to work with Children from a local school.
If you've any memories, pictures or information to share do get in touch.
Until next time
