The aims and ambition of Heart for Hathersage are to meet the desire, expressed by the community, for a focal point to be created in the village – to establish an attractive village centre where people can gather in comfort and safety, and for special occasions such as Xmas, Gala events etc. It will also be an informative place where visitors can rest, enjoy and find out about Hathersage and its surroundings.

The area identified as the ‘heart’ of Hathersage is the paved area around the Parish Rooms (currently the Hope Valley Veterinary Clinic) and the toilet/bus shelter block, plus the surrounding pavements at the corner of Main Road and The Crofts.

Hathersage has never had a village square, or village green, or even a duck pond to give it a central point. Residents feel the village lacks a place to gather and visitors have no identifiable place to rendezvous, wandering the shops on Main Road asking for information and directions. Those who frequent the village centre also complain about the poor state of the public toilets, and a dingy bus shelter that is over 20 metres from the bus stop!

Heart for Hathersage hopes to address all these needs by creating a real heart for our community. State-of-the-art toilet facilities and a new bus stop will sit in a public space enhanced with grass, shrubs, seating and signage describing local heritage sites and present day amenities.

Over the past decade the group has developed a set of proposals, always in consultation with every part of the community, and in 2013 these were approved by the Peak District National Park Authority’s planning department. Last year an updated, more affordable design was developed by a local architect and we are now on a final fundraising effort to make these plans a reality.

Hathersage Parish Council is hoping to raise funds to help complete our project via a Public Works Board Loan and to this end Heart for Hathersage have been holding joint meetings with the Parish Council’s Amenities Committee. This planned loan and other fundraising initiatives now look set to bring our long cherished plans to reality in early 2017!
