Chesterfield & District Federation

More Information

Chesterfield & District Federation has 14 Guilds, the Federation area covering Chesterfield (6), Dronfield (4), Clay Cross, Wingerworth, Bolsover and Bakewell.  

We regularly hold events for our members, the latest ones being a skin care demonstration by Boots No7 and a Pie & Pea Lunch in the historic Chesterfield Market Hall. 

In the past few years we have opened four Guilds in Wingerworth, Bakewell, Brampton and, just this year, Whittington;  all are morning Guilds and all are doing well.    

As a Federation we enjoy getting involved in National events – we are always well represented at the AGM, send at least two coachloads to one of the Carol Services and try to get to International Days, Road Shows and other events.   

 Our General Knowledge Quiz Team has won the Cup four times!  We also compete each year in the Crown Green Bowls finals.  

Council meetings are held six times a year, with the committee meeting in the alternate months.  Only nine of us on the committee – we’re always asking for more volunteers, but ….!  However, we are Townswomen, so we manage to arrange all our events and business meetings!  

We have a mixed bag of guilds, meeting at all times of the day – some with few members, others quite large in number.  And they are all, of course, very different.  Each Guild presents an annual report at a Council meeting throughout the year and it is always most interesting to hear of their activities, speakers and, more often than not, their lunches, teas, dinners etc – any excuse for a good feed!
