Treat boxes for NHS keyworkers
Updated 2 July 2020
Since April, staff in the Carriage House kitchens have been busy baking sweet treats for the hardworking NHS heroes in North Derbyshire. Distributed by the local Community Health Trust, the treat boxes have been sent to 10 hospitals and 32 community sites such as local clinics and health centres. Over the last ten weeks, 720 treat bags and 150 cakes have been distributed, reaching hundreds of NHS key workers.
We look forward to continuing this every week to a little Chatsworth sunshine to those working to keep us all safe.
Holiday cottages for frontline NHS staff
13 May 2020
In order to support the NHS and allow frontline staff to isolate from vulnerable family, we’re making three Chatsworth holiday cottages available to NHS workers free of charge. To do so, we’re partnering with Derbyshire County Council, who will assist with the booking and verification process.
The aim is to help frontline NHS staff who need to isolate from members of their household or be closer to their workplace to accommodate shift patterns. Those eligible can apply to stay in one of the cottages by sending an email from their NHS email address to firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and the organisation they work for. The county council will liaise with the NHS to verify they are an NHS employee.

Signs of support
30 April 2020
As a sign of our support and appreciation for all the amazing work NHS and key workers are doing across the country, we have proudly displayed these signs at the Golden Gates and Sandy’s Turn entrances to Chatsworth and also at the Devonshire Arms, Pilsley and Beeley.
We want to reiterate the government’s message and encourage visitors to stay at home and stay safe during lockdown. Lots of families live on the estates and it’s important that we protect them and the wider community at this time.
A big thank you to our sign makers and to Penny (age 4) and Matilda (age 7) who coloured the drawing of Chatsworth.
