Free Double Bed

We have a double bed free to a new home later this month. I believe it was originally from Ikea, is solid wood and in really good condition. Cat not included! Welcome to the mattress also if wanted. Debbie W 390568

Well done to the ladies as well we had a strong turn out this year and hopefully it peaked an interest in a few more for next year 😉. Here are the results..

Wakes 22 so far….

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has participated and hopefully enjoyed Wakes so far. It’s been an awesome weekend and record numbers of people attending. It means a lot to us Parwich folk and the Carnival and Recreation Committee that this tradition continues and this spurs us on to keep going. A massive shout out to everyone that has helped, donated or just contributed to the weekend and the best news is there is still a full week of events to go. A special shout out to Notts DA for attending, we have missed Ian and his family but his legacy will carry on.

Hopefully see you all around for the rest of the week and I’ll be sharing some better quality photos later in the week (thanks to David G).

But in the meantime here are just a few of mine so I will simply sign off with a THANK YOU and long may Parwich Wakes continue. Now to get ready for the Treasure Hunt 😁

Open Gardens- Captions Please!

Whilst we admire the beauty of the gardens on display during Open Gardens we don’t perhaps fully appreciate the effort and dedication that goes into the quest for perfection. We are indebted to David G who managed to catch this behind the scenes shot of one of our more athletic gardeners in his effort to get everything just in the correct position.

Captions Please!

Parwich Please Take a Bow

Yesterday’s Open Gardens was a triumph. Huge thanks to the hard working team behind the event and to the whole village both for supporting it in different ways and for welcoming so many visitors, who frequently said how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful place. Early estimates suggest several thousand pounds were raised which is a fantastic achievement and John Lord’s amazing photos are a lasting memory of a great day.

Thank you from PDHS

Quiz night at the Legion

Legion Bingo – Wakes Special!


Today’s rain is a suitable reminder that the Flood Agency advise preparing in advance of any flooding rather than during it! The Parish Council has provided sand and sandbags in the store at the base of the Sycamore flagpole. These are available to anyone who feels they would be helpful. If you think you might need sandbags please feel free to fill and take some any at time. Then you will have them if you need them. They work best if they are about two thirds full.

The Clerk also has a small number of “floodsax’ provided as a free sample. These are easier and lighter to store. They can be quickly deployed at the base of a door where they swell up to reduce any ingress of water. These are also best collected in advance, so if you would like one please contact the Clerk on or 01335 216238 or call round at Fernlea.

CAMRA meeting – postponed

Were crown green bowls matches to be shown on the BBC’s “Match of the Day” programme, then our home encounter with Chatsworth last Tuesday would surely have featured highly. Gary Lineker would have waxed lyrical while his team of pundits uttered their oohs, aahs and nods of approval in the right places with or without the Director General’s arm inserted into their backs from within, as on a warm and balmy summer’s evening we urged and coaxed each other on to our 71 to 59 victory. I dare say that even the Duke of Devonshire himself, had he been present to add support to his side, would have revelled in the excitement as he’d sipped his mug of Edith’s renowned tea and couple of chocolate biscuits. It had been a pleasure to play in and in no small part due to Chatsworth for their participation in such a match.

The occasion was so very nearly mirrored two days later as this time we hosted Bradwell for our Thursday League contest. Alas, ’twas not to be this time. In the competition in which we have as yet to score a win this term it was a case of “so near yet so far.” Behind after the doubles games we fought back well to hold a slender lead going into the final pairing, but Bradwell seem always to be fierce opponents and more often than not pull out a secret weapon when needed, this time being the indomitable Martin C who swept aside our hopes of a celebration that would undoubtedly gone on well into the night. (Well maybe not, but it sounds good.) The final score being a tantalisingly close 111 to 107 defeat and further consignment at the lower reaches of the table.

Nevertheless, as the hand of fate often dictates, we have our chance for revenge early as we travel on Tuesday to Bradwell in the tournament in which we are excelling this year. I’m looking forward to it, and trust that next week’s missal will contain tidings to make Parwich hearts sing.
