Pizza Night at the Legion

Collision

Some time between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning someone has driven into our car while it was parked outside our house opposite to Pump Hill. We didn’t hear it happen and no note has been left. (see photos) To hit it going forward would have meant the other vehicle was on the wrong side of the road. But there are no skid marks or damage down the side of the car. Perhaps someone reversed into it? If anyone saw this happen or remembers passing and seeing (or not)  the damage caused then any information would be gratefully received. Or if you have seen any suspicious new damage on any other vehicle!

Pizza Night at the Legion

Church on Sunday 9 August

This Sunday (9th) there will be a service of Morning Prayer at 10am, in St Peter’s church, Parwich. All are welcome.  (Please note that Government guidelines means that mask wearing is now compulsory)

Your invitation to a service in church during COVID19, and what to expect

Welcome to your church.

To protect each other, we are following the guidelines and laws around gathering and worshiping inside the church.

You have a responsibility with everyone involved to follow these guidelines, set by the Government, The House of Bishops and Bishop Libby here in Derby Diocese.

Please do not come to church if you are feeling ill in any way. You may decide it is not right for you to attend church, either for yourself or to protect others in your close group, who, perhaps are shielding.

The church has been Spring cleaned and aired. The risk assessment has been approved by Archdeacon Carol.

These are the steps as we come into the building.

Please queue up the path observing 2 meters social distancing. You should wear a face mask over your nose and mouth.

On arrival at the outer door, please sanitize your hands.

Pick up a service order (and please take it home with you)

The warden will invite you to enter the church and tell you where you may take a seat inside. Look for a place marker like this in the pew they tell you is for you today.

You may sit next to anyone from your own household, only.

Please avoid touching anything (pews, font, rails) on your way to your seat, or any person.

The seating has been set 2 meters apart. Please sit exactly where the fish sign is, as the distance within each pew has been calculated.

This probably means that you cannot sit where you usually sit. This is to avoid people walking past others as they take their seats, especially in our smaller churches which only have one door.

While you wait for the service to start, you may want to look around at the building; all the features you remember and have missed; stained glass windows, stone walls, pulpit. If you are in a different seat to usual, maybe you can see features you haven’t seen for a while. Please smile at any new people who have joined in.

Please remain in your seat until the end of the service.

Sorry, no singing is permitted yet, so our service will consist of Bible readings, prayers, a talk and some music.

You may want to stand, sit, kneel, as you feel called and able. If you prefer, remain seated.

At the end of the service we will sign the Peace (please do turn and share that with everyone in the service.)

Sadly there will be no refreshments or gathering for a chat inside the church building.

Please follow instructions on the order in which you leave the church – it will be the reverse of how everyone came in – those nearest the door first. This will maintain the 2 meter social distancing.

Remember to take your service sheet home with you, along with any tissues, umbrella, anything you brought. The church will be locked for 72 hours following the service, with no entry permitted. This is to allow the COVID19 virus to become ineffective before the church is dusted and swept as usual.

Missing Cocker Spaniel – now found

UPDATE – Jake has now returned home safe and sound. Alan and Heather would like to thank everyone for their help in finding him.

Missing from Rathbourne Croft this morning, Jake a young black and white cocker spaniel. Very friendly, wearing a collar. Please contact Alan or Heather W on 01335 390513 if you have seen him

Black Lab on the Loose

There’s a black lab (I think) with a red collar loose near Roystone Grange, heading towards the quarry. It’s very frightened, and ran away when approached. We’re trying to get it on a lead to keep it safe. If anyone has lost their dog please call me (Ruth) on 07717846918

Last seen heading towards the High Peak trail, we have been unable to catch it.

Plants!

Sales organised by Parwich Horticultural Society outside Rookery House have gone really well. We have what will probably be the last batch of plants to sell. These include Cornus “Midwinter Fire”, Hostas and Spirea. We are currently on £130 for the Memorial Hall – please help us get to £150!
Many thanks

Residents’ garden waste service questions answered

With garden waste collections now operating to schedule across the Derbyshire Dales during the continuing coronavirus pandemic, local residents are being reminded there will be a charge for the service from April next year.

More than half of all UK councils now charge residents for garden waste collections, including 39 of the 50 councils most similar to Derbyshire Dales District Council.

It will cost a discounted £35 for Dales households that subscribe to the garden waste service before the end of January 2021, generating funds to offset the increased cost of the District Council’s new waste and recycling contract, which starts next month.

The cost of the contract rises by £1-million a year after Dales residents made it clear they wanted the District Council to maintain current service levels, which are the best in Derbyshire. It means fortnightly collections of dry recycling and residual household waste continue as the new contract kicks in, together with weekly food waste collections.

A cheaper deal could have been struck by making household waste collections less frequent – but in resident surveys local people rejected this idea. Councillors voted by an overwhelming majority at a special council meeting at the end of last year for Serco to continue to deliver the waste and recycling contract for the district and also agreed to approve the new charge for collecting garden waste.

Subscriptions open from September this year and the cost will rise to £50 from February 2021 when the discount period ends. Free garden waste collections will continue for all 34,000 households across the Dales until April next year. Ahead of the new garden waste service launch, the District Council has prepared a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/gardenwasteFAQs

A District Council spokesperson said: “It’s important to stress this will be an opt-in service and charging for garden waste collections was a decision councillors took reluctantly, but we have to raise extra revenue to balance out the impact of the rising cost of the new waste and recycling contract. The reality is that we’ve had to set the garden waste charge so the waste and recycling service overall is affordable to the Council Tax payer.We appreciate residents will have many questions, including why the new contract is £1-million more expensive than the current one, which is why we have prepared the FAQs.Put simply, the market place was much more competitive when we struck the current deal eight years ago. That deal, which was exceptional value for money, simply does not exist in 2020, and this became clear during a rigorous tendering process. Vehicle prices have increased due in part to additional safety features and improved environmental standards, and staff wages have also increased significantly and are likely to continue to rise. In addition, we have specified new technologies such as 360 degree cameras and in-cab technology, which adds to the cost. At the same time, the price obtainable for recyclables has fallen substantially.”

The District Council invited all Dales residents to respond to two consultations during a waste service review period. The main survey closed in September 2018 with 2,629 responses. The spokesperson added: “Local people made it clear to us they wanted to maintain fortnightly collections of household waste and recycling, and weekly food waste collections. To keep the service at the same level in the face of rising costs, it is necessary for a charge for garden waste to offset some of the overall costs of the new service. Added to this, local government finances continue to be challenging and successive central government grant cuts mean we need more money to continue to provide the frontline services our residents expect. The level of government grant we receive will have reduced from £2.8m in 2013/14 to £1m by 2020/21. So even after making substantial savings in recent times, we have to find additional ongoing annual savings or additional income of £250,000 by 2023/24.”

Food waste collection returns to weekly from Monday

27 July.

Food waste collections in the Derbyshire Dales will return to weekly from Monday 27 July.

Since the end of March the collections have been fortnightly to enable reduced crews due to coronavirus impacts to prioritise household waste and recycling rounds.The usual annual delivery of caddy liners for 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and will now take place in September.

In the current circumstances any biodegradable bag which conforms to the BS:EN13432 standard and which displays the compostable logo can be used. Food waste can also be placed directly in the food caddy.

Residents can check on their collection date using the online postcode calendar at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/whenismycollection

Blue and Green Bins on Wednesday

I believe still not food caddy tomorrow to give extra capacity for garden waste. Note no additional garden waste will be taken beyond the usual bin (or 5 bags if you don’t have a bin).

Panoramic 5 Cancelled

Sadly, but understandably, the organisers of the Parwich Panoramic Five have made the decision to cancel the PP5 for this year. It would have been on Tuesday 4 August but with the current Covid situation they felt it inappropriate to be inviting 100+ people in to the village unnecessarily.
