'The Bugle' is a free newsletter that is produced for the
villages of Alport, Middleton and Youlgrave, near Bakewell in the
Derbyshire Peak District. The newsletter began in 1998 after
suggestions that the villages needed this sort of publication came out of a
European Initiative called 'Project Leader'.
In the early days, the newsletter was printed free of charge
by local print shop, 'Reprint', and
was distributed to village shops, the Doctors' Surgery etc., from where
people could collect their copy. However, today we pay Greenaway
Workshop to do the printing and it is delivered to most houses in the
villages, thanks to an army of deliverers, most of whom do so
voluntarily. Greenaway Workshop is an independent
registered charity, established in 1981, providing work for people with
disabilities in a therapeutic environment.
