There’s so much in your packed Derbyshire Times this week, here’s what’s inside..

In news we have a special two page report on the shocking court case which heard how a self-confessed killer allegedly murdered his girlfriend by stamping on her head and then set fire to her Chesterfield home after he suspected she had been having sex with a drug dealer.

We look at how big-hearted locals will be giving a very special Christmas present to those who need it most and look at the crash blackspots to avoid across the county.

Then there’s the wonderful support shown for a Derbyshire teenager who almost died after contracting meningitis.

As part of our Derbyshire Times Pride campaign, we look at some of Chesterfield’s golden gems and ask the question: how well do you REALLY know the town?

Then we have look at the controversial town centre bar which was closed because of ‘serious crime and disorder’ - and why it is now set to reopen.

There’s a chance to win a fabulous prize as we give away a huge Hobbycraft hamper that’s worth an amazing £500, and you can win free tickets to see a leading Fleetwood Mac tribute act when they hit Chesterfield’s Real Time.

Meanwhile in our comprehensive 10-page sports section, we ask is Chesterfield’s injury crisis finally showing some signs of abating after what Ian Evatt has called a ‘frustrating’ period.

All this plus your usual, letters, columnists, entertainment guide to What’s On, puzzles page, family notices, Motors. Property Guide, family notices, grass roots and much more - it’s all in this week’s Derbyshire Times.
