This month's Made in Derbyshire poem was created during the Derbyshire Literature Festival at a workshop run by River Wolton at The Staveley Community Care Centre. Participants shared their life stories which were shaped into this powerful poem.
To look at me you’d never guess I own a thousand books
Or that meat and potato pie’s my favourite thing to cook,
That when the Sheffield Blitz was on we saw the sky ablaze,
Huddled in air-raid shelters for the best part of two days.
