Chesterfield & District Federation

More Information

Chesterfield & District Federation has 12 Guilds, the Federation area covering Chesterfield (5), Dronfield (4), Clay Cross, Wingerworth and Bakewell.  

We regularly hold events for our members, including our annual lunch or dinner.  In the pipeline we have an Afternoon Tea planned for the summer and an outing to Halifax.

In the past few years we have opened five Guilds in Wingerworth, Bakewell, Brampton, whittington and, just this year, Calow;  all are morning Guilds and all are doing well.    

As a Federation we enjoy getting involved in National events – we are always well represented at the AGM, Carol Services International Days and other events.   

Our General Knowledge Quiz Team has won the Cup five times!  

Council meetings are held six times a year, with the committee meeting in the alternate months.  Only nine of us on the committee – we’re always asking for more volunteers, but ….!  However, we are Townswomen, so we manage to arrange all our events and business meetings!  

We have a mixed bag of guilds, meeting at all times of the day – some with few members, others quite large in number.  And they are all, of course, very different.  Each Guild presents an annual report at a Council meeting throughout the year and it is always most interesting to hear of their activities, speakers and, more often than not, their lunches, teas, dinners etc – any excuse for a good feed!
