How to get involved

If you are interested in supporting the work of the Derbyshire VCH Trust, you are very welcome to join us.

We are currently concentrating our research on the Chesterfield area, having undertaken research, which has been published, on Bolsover and adjoining parishes –

Part of the work we do involves making our research more widely known. We do this through traditional and electronic publishing, including our blogs and Facebook posts.

You can find out more information on our activities at our website and by contacting us at

In normal times we run a weekly term-time research group in Chesterfield, which brings together a small friendly group of interested people under our County Editor Philip Riden. We hope to restart this in September. We also hold summer guided walks and hold an AGM with guest speaker. Members of VCH also receive a free copy of our publications (but not back copies) and a periodic newsletter.

Membership is available from £5 a month, which includes entry into our monthly prize-draw currently for £100. We are a registered charity.
