I AM extremely proud of our Ashbourne U15 rugby team. On Sunday, they travelled to Lincoln with parents in tow for the Notts, Lincoln and Derby final, against Lincoln.

A nervous start from Ashbourne but finally we went on to win 31-22.

These lads have come a long way and the win is truly deserved. Special thanks go to the coaches, Jon Sherry, Nat Fryer and George Ditchfield and David Coakley, their manager. We are very grateful for your help in getting them this far.

So Will, Conor, Ross, Tom, Ben, Luke, Ben, Joe, Ed, Joe, Josh, Isaac, Josh, Jack, Josh, Mikey, Brad, Sam, Callum, Brad, Callum, Herbie and Max, you have made us very, very proud and we can't wait until next season.

    Over the bank holiday weekend my wife and i decided to go for a walk across the airfield and down through Bradley Wood. After loosing our way on the airfield, which was a laugh, we found the path again and were disgusted at the mess left in the field the path runs through, by people that had obviously spent i night camping and partying. I have no objections to people having fun in the great outdoors but they did not have to leave litter, two tents and broken glass beer bottles behind, which is a danger to the young lambs in the field and other people with young children that use the path. As we continued into Bradley Wood down towards Belper Road the situation got no better with litter, tin cans and yet more broken glass beer bottles strewn all over the wood. We would all like to enjoy the country side with our families, so could the people that leave their rubbish everywhere, please consider others and take their rubbish (which when empty will be a lot lighter than it was when they carried it up there) with them and dispose of it in a rubbish bin," Please".
