Well done to all fundraisers

On Wednesday, December 14, the Matlock Area Recreation and Sports Group held its final meeting, the object of the group being completed with the opening of ARC. The facility is second to none in the region and will be of great benefit to local residents and visitors alike.

I would like to thank members of the group, the district council and all others who have contributed over the years.

A final cheque will be handed over to the district council in the new year which will total nearly £200,000 which the group, in conjunction with Twiggs of Matlock, have worked to raise over the last 12 years.

Well done everyone, be proud of your achievement, and I wish you all a very active and healthy New Year.

Barrie Tipping

Chairman MARS Group
