Welcome to our ninety first electronic newsletter.
Please note the Free Will Offer from Buchanan & Co. further down the page. They are repeating this in June because it was so successful in February.

Festival volunteers
We were stunned and delighted by the number of volunteers who came to help at the Festival. There were over 150 of our members on duty. This is a staggering show of commitment to the cause, which was most certainly noted by our V.I.P. guests and the general public.

BHESS meetings
As you may know, Barrow Hill Roundhouse is closing for refurbishment following the receipt of the grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Barrow Hill Engine Shed Society will be holding their meetings at Hollingwood Hub whist the Roundhouse is out of action, starting on July 21st. They meet on the third Thursday of every month and anyone is welcome to come. Click here for the programme. It costs £2 for members and £3 for non-members, but CCT members can pay £2.

Free Wills Month
Buchanan & Co will write your standard Will for you as a free service, but request a donation. This donation will go in its entirety to the Chesterfield Canal Trust. The donation will be £95 for a single Will and/or £150 for a double Will. Please note that this offer only runs to the end of June.

Include a legacy to the CCT in your Will and you will make even more of a difference!

Buchanan & Co has offices at
21 High Street, Staveley - 01246 471900 and
29 Station Road, Kiveton Park - 01909 51075.
Please ring for further information or to make an appointment quoting the reference CCT16.

What is covered by the Free Wills package?
Buchanan & Co will construct a Standard Will, which includes the information listed below. Should you require a more in depth Will, say a Trust clause for minors, Trust clauses for the gifting of property and the like, then additional charges will apply. These extra charges do not form part of the donation and do attract V.A.T. at the current published rate.

What should I do before my appointment?
Before coming to give instruction on the making of your standard Will/s, please consider the following and make a note of the details in advance:
- Your personal details – DoB, contact numbers, email address…etc.
- Your chosen Executors & Trustees.
- Your chosen Beneficiaries, i.e. wife/husband then children/grandchildren etc.
- Your choice of despatch, i.e. cremation/burial.
- The donation of £95 for a single Will or £150 for a pair. As this is a donation it does not attract V.A.T. Debit & Credit Card payments are accepted.

What can I expect to happen at the meeting?
As a gesture, Buchanan & Co will provide you with a FREE Estate Planning Assessment worth £99.00. As part of the package, your Wills will be registered with CERTAINTY, the Will registration scheme, at no extra cost. As an additional gesture Buchanan & Co will store your original Will, for the life of your Will with us.

Keep smiling!

Rod Auton.
