4 December – Mike Severn assisted by his friend John, and his wife entertained us with Christmas stories, poems and songs. There were some lovely choice pieces of poetry beautifully read and some songs that we don’t normally associate with Christmas or when the tune is not the obvious one for the well-known lyrics. We then had a Christmas nibbles and tea followed by Santa’s presents and the raffle.
The Ellastone Monday Club meets in the Parish Hall on the first Monday of the month (including Bank Holidays) at 2.30pm.
The club has been running now for 10 years. In the beginning it was for the over-60s, but now everyone is welcome. Each month there is a speaker or demonstration, followed by the all-important cup of tea and a chat.
We have a varied programme of speakers & films, and a Garden Meeting in the summer. Occasionally we go out for a meal. There is no fee for joining – you pay £2.00 when you come & this includes tea & biscuits. For further details please contact Pam Shouksmith: 324094.
Careline offers a FREE telephone befriending service to people living in the Derbyshire Dales and Uttoxeter area.
They aim to make people’s lives better by calling those who feel in need of support – they may be elderly, less able to get out, recently bereaved, feeling lonely or isolated. They offer friendship to the people they call and peace of mind to their family and friends.
They monitor people’s well-being and pass on useful information about the services available to them in their local community.
The service is completely free and available every day of the year including weekends and bank holidays. Click on the logo above for more information.

Please help us to keep this club going to share friendship, which is very important as we get older, but also for the not so old. It is a very good place to find out information if you are new to the village as several long-time members have lived in Ellastone all their lives and can quite possibly give you some history about your own house that you didnt know!
