Below are some of the facilities that we provide at Tibself Parish Council
The Parish Council office is situated in the Village Hall and is open from 8:30am to 2:30pm Monday to Wednesday
The hall is available for hire for all your celebratory needs – Children’s Parties, Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries – whatever you are celebrating.

Shetland Road Recreation Ground is a lovely multi-use open area. Tibshelf Football Club has its home ground here and Blackwell and District Striders Athletics Club uses this as its base all year round. We have a recently refurbished pavilion with excellent changing facilities and a separate meeting/small event room with its own toilets and kitchen facilities. We are hoping to attract a cricket club to the ground over the summer months.
The ground boasts a large children’s play area as well as some newly installed outdoor fitness equipment.
Tibshelf Carnival is held on the Recreation Ground each July and we have also hosted a caravan Club over the past couple of years.
There are currently two play areas in the parish.
One at Shetland Road which is run and managed by the Parish Council and one at Lincoln Street which is managed by Bolsover District Council.
The Parish Council pay for someone to lock and unlock gates at both Play Areas as well as the Cemetery to try and minimise problems after dark.
Update 21/07/2020 – The playgrounds at Shetland Road and Lincoln Street have now reopened, subject to social distancing requirements and other measures outlined on posters at the entrance.
The Parish Council lease out the allotment area to the Tibshelf Allotment Association who run and manage the hire of the allotments.
The churchyard at St John the Baptist Church has been closed for new burials for several years and its maintenance has been transferred to Bolsover District Council.
Tibshelf Parish Council established the Tibshelf Parish Cemetery at Doe Hill Lane in the early 1990s and continue to manage and maintain it.
The Parish Council provide hanging baskets throughout the parish and boundary planters at all entrances to the village.
Sponsorship for the baskets and the planters are invited each year.
The Parish Council work with the Revd Gill Manley at St John the Baptist Church and finance the cost of providing a marching band for the Remembrance Day parade.
The Parish Council provide a large real Christmas Tree in the centre of the village on the green opposite the shops on High Street, as well as trees on the majority of commercial properties throughout the village (with the proprietors’ permissions!) during the Christmas Season.
They also arrange a Christmas Market, a Christmas Event with a Santa’s grotto for the children and a Christmas Carol Concert.

The Parish Council participate in the Snow Warden Scheme, working in partnership with Derbyshire County Council to try and manage the clearing of the main walkways in the parish during snowfall. We have to be realistic as to how much can be done and try and concentrate on the main thoroughfares – ie those around the shops, High Street bus stops and doctors.
We very much rely on our resident’s neighbourliness in trying to help one another on the side roads. We do our best to keep the grit bins topped up.
We would remind everyone that the grit in the grit bins is not for personal use on drives house paths etc: – this is for the benefit of all residents and should only be used on the public footpaths and roads.
