Gold Card magazine is out now

Gold Card holders in Derbyshire can pick up the latest edition of Derbyshire Gold magazine now.

Produced by Derbyshire County Council, the new 2014 edition is available in libraries and county, district and borough council offices across the county.

The 40-page, free magazine is packed full of features, interviews, advice, tips and competitions, and is a must read for the county’s 175,000 Gold Card Holders.

Highlights of this issue include articles on cycling fever in Derbyshire ahead of the Tour de France, interview with people who have chosen to keep on working after retirement age and how budget cuts will affect the county council’s adult social care services.

There is also the chance to win a Denby dinner set, a two-night break in a Lake District hotel and tickets to a number of top shows coming to the county.

County Council leader, Coun Anne Western, said: “Derbyshire Gold magazine is a good read, but more importantly there’s dozens of ideas to help save people money in these tough economic times including making the most of Gold Card discounts, borrowing from libraries rather than buying and making sure people are getting all the welfare benefits they’re entitled to.

“I’d really encourage all Gold Card holders to go and pick up their free copy.”

As well as picking up a copy, people can also read Derbyshire Gold online at or ring Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190 and ask for a copy to be sent to them.
