Praise for Alsop Hospitality

As an Alsop myself, I made a backpacking trip in 2008 across Europe, and had to stop at Alsop en le Dale. I was peaking over the fence of the hall when a woman asked if she could help me. Understandably looking suspicious, I explained my situation. She showed me the church because I had previously not pushed hard enough on the door, and presumed it locked. The woman lived in the farmhouse right next to the church and offered to let me come to her home for tea. She made my trip to Alsop en le Dale spectacular. I wonder if there’s a way to send a thank you note to the kind woman that I met that day, as well as make a small contribution to the church.

Thank you,

Michael Alsop

Parwich commemorated the centenary of the start of World War I, perhaps the darkest four years of the twentieth century, with an exhibition, a talk and a moving service at the War Memorial.

image

Some 80 Parwich men served in the Arm Forces during WWI, the Exhibition included details and photographs of some of those that the History Society and Parwich Legion have managed to identify from local knowledge and newspapers of the time. More need to identified, so if you know of anyone who served, have any stories or have photographs do get in touch.

Thank you to Mike H for this account and photos of today’s ‘Tea & Cakes’ in Alsop Churchyard:

image

Despite being short-staffed, volunteers at Alsop-en-le-Dale manned a stall brimming with cakes, jams and chutney today in the churchyard of St Michael & the Angels. Nothing could compare with basking in the spring sunshine supping a refreshing cuppa and tucking into a slice of home-made cake.

If you missed today, there will be three other opportunities on upcoming bank holiday Mondays. This year they will be on 5th May, 26th May and 25th August. We recommend you make a note in your diaries!

A big thank you and help required.

Mick Edge sent in the following request for a volunteer or volunteers to temporarily take over his voluntary mowing in St. Peter’s Churchyard:

To whom it may concern,

Stuart Chambers talked to me regarding asking for help for a season to mow my section of the Churchyard, because of my other commitments. Would the people please come forward, who are saying I spend too much time talking, when I should be mowing, to do their bit. If it was a paid position the situation would be different. I am looking forward to you all volunteering.

Mick Edge

Stuart asked us to give a very big thanks to Mick for all the work he has done in the Churchyard to date and to say that “he will be much missed” over the next season (not least because “he has the worst part of the church yard“). The Churchyard is looking really great and all the team, that work so hard keeping it so, do a fantastic job. If you are able to help, please speak to Mick or Stuart.
