We were formed in 1947 and we celebrated our Diamond Jubilee in 2007.
It is known that the founder member and first Secretary was in 1947, Thomas Joseph Kennedy, an ex Inspector at Matlock and he continued in this office until 27th March, 1963. The Chairman was W. B. Clews and both worked diligently towards an efficient branch.
On 6th February 1956 the first invitation was extended to the Chief Constable, W. E. Pitts, to attend a meeting on Sunday 18th March, which he did. He was invited to become President of the branch to which he agreed and the practice continues to this day.
Our present Chairman is Len Smith who was elected in 1987 and the present Secretary is Sean Murphy.

26/10/14 Age UK Focus Group Hi All, This could be of interest to some of your members who have experienced family living in a care home:
Are you a family member or friend of an older person who is living in a care home? For an older person (and their family or friends), the move between hospital and care home can sometimes be a complicated and challenging process, whether it starts from an admission to hospital from their own home, ending with discharge to a care home, or is an admission from their care home into hospital when they are poorly. Such moves can be made easier by health and care systems working well. AGEUK would very much like to hear more about moves between hospital and care home, from the point of view of family members or friends of older people who have undergone the process Our attached invitation provides more information about what Age UK would like to learn from your experience. If you feel that the focus group topic relates to you, please return a completed expression of interest form to register interest to attend. Travel expenses and meals will be provided if selected.
