IN PR AISE OF THE COUNTY

Derbyshire Life - - People -

Two splen­did ser­vices at the end of Oc­to­ber made me blush with joy for all things Der­byshire. First the High Sher­iff of Der­byshire’s Le­gal Ser­vice, when c. 500 guests were en­ter­tained to a mem­o­rable blend of hymns, les­sons, choral an­thems and prayers at Derby Cathe­dral. Then at St Oswald’s in Ash­bourne there was an even­song to cel­e­brate Har­vest or­gan­ised by Ash­bourne Young Farm­ers, which in­cluded a ded­i­ca­tion of the crops and fruits from the field. Both events high­lighted the pride of Der­byshire folk and the glo­ri­ous na­ture of these two marvel­lous build­ings on our doorstep.
