Well Dressing

It's been a number of years since the village last did the traditional Well Dressings, which historically were a popular annual community event.

Are you interested in having the village well dressings in 2023?

Do you want to be part of a working group to organise the event?

In order for the well dressings to take place the village needs willing volunteers to form a working group that will decide on a design, source flowers and facilitate the making of the wells, along with any other related event you may want to run alongside.

If you are interested in being part of this, please contact Matt Bates via either of the below methods.

Tel: 07970 544705

Matt will collate the details of any people that have come forward and put you in touch with each other to discuss next steps and viability to take it forward.


Our January meeting was held on Monday 16th at the Village Hall.

After discussing correspondence and future plans we welcomed our guest for the evening Tracey Chamberlain, who instructed us on indoor curling.

Our next meeting will be held on Monday 20th February at the Village Hall where our speaker will be from the Peak Chiropractic and Kinesiology Clinic in Ashbourne.

If you are interested in joining us as a guest or would like to become a member please contact Wilma Mee on 01889 591095 or for further information go to
