Sew a Square

Monkey Park
Address: 134 Chester St, Chesterfield S40 1DL, UK
The ‘Sew a Square’ event is being organized by Chesterfield Museum. They are creating a community tapestry made up of fabric squares decorated by the local community. The event is designed to help the community reflect on coronavirus and what helped them during the lockdowns.

DCRT is hosting our own riverside ‘Sew a Square’ event at Monkey Park, where you can come and make your own squares for the museum tapestry. It will be a fun session where we can get crafting, have a cup of tea, and talk to each other about what has helped us through the pandemic.


The day will be split into a morning (10:00 – 12:00) and an afternoon (13:00 – 15:00) session. Each session is limited to 15 people. To book onto the morning or afternoon session please go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/sew-a-square-monkey-park-tickets-160795197765


Everyone is welcome. The event is free and all crafting materials will be supplied.

    As part of Chesterfield Walking Festival, Debbie our NFM officer will be guiding a walk around Grassmoor Country Park to explore a recently completed flood alleviation and habitat creation scheme. Find out how DCRT are using nature-friendly ways to catch and store water - reducing flood risk, protecting people and benefitting wildlife.


    We will explore 4 different zones in the park that have been created to capture and store rainfall and runoff, reducing pressure on the local river network during heavy rainfall, and completing the circular park route with 360-degree views over Chesterfield.


    We will be on and off path during this walk and it may be muddy underfoot so appropriate footwear is recommended. This walk is circular so we will finish back at the car park.
