Angela Wildgoose brings eco-friendly business to Chesterfield

Whether you’re busy with a family and a career, or just want some occasional help around the house, hiring a cleaning service is not only practical, but can be a lifesaver.

What do you want for your children?

I want emotional stability, inner peace and self-worth. Quite an ambitious list for an irate single mum. So when I was considering childcare, I knew that what I wanted for my children was somewhere that could offer the calmness and patience I was struggling to provide.

That man is Eric Keeler, a local lad but someone who certainly stands out from the Chesterfield crowd, with a beard so lengthy it threatens to lap up his latte as we sit chatting. “When I was six or seven I remember watching the news” Eric tells me. “There was a man who was running across America. I thought ‘Wow!'” In April this year, Eric set off from the United States’ most easterly point in Maine, New

Cold Hands, Warm Hearts

Not having a home is a situation no-one expects to find themselves in, and yet, for a growing number of people in Chesterfield, it is a reality. For some of our town’s most vulnerable residents, cuts to local services have meant that safety nets are no longer in place, and there are now more rough sleepers than ever before. One service which has consistently served the community for the last fourteen years is Church on the Bus. In this time, it has served over fifty thousand meals to the homeless and vulnerably housed, providing a non-judgemental environment for them to
