Pump Hill

The Parish Council has arranged with the Probation Service for a Community Payback team to clear the ground on the Parish Council’s land at Pump Hill. They will be removing brambles and small self seeded trees and shrubs. No work is being done on trees.

The work will be carried out this weekend, 24th and 25th of March. There will be a skip provided by Derbyshire County Council parked in the road from Friday to Monday to collect what is removed.

This work is being carried out at no cost to the Parish Council.

The work is not linked to any future plans for Pump Hill. It is just being seen as an opportunity to improve its appearance. None the less any comments or suggestions would be welcome.

QEGS Shut Today

Mon1903 0636am.Unfortunately our school site is unsafe for staff and students today. The snow and ice combined with freezing temperatures has left thick ice which our site team are working hard to clear. Student and staff safety is always our priority and regrettably we have had to make the decision to close today (19032018)in order to make the site safe.

Diary Updates

We will be updating the Diary page next weekend, so if you have any Alsop, Ballidon, Parwich or Pikehall events (April and May) that you want to go in the Diary in time to be included in the Peak Five Church Magazine’s April issue please send them in by Saturday (24th of March).

Including our Diary in the Church magazine is important as it helps you reach some of those who are not on-line.

Please send Diary information to or leave me a message on tel. 287.

Thank you, Peter

Road Conditions

The Police are warning motorists to take care on the roads and not to travel on any higher routes. Locally, with a number of crashes yesterday and more snow overnight, the A515 between Newhaven and Buxton is closed this morning.

Also take care on Alsop Lane as the increased traffic due to the temporary closure of the B5056 has churned up the verges with cars getting stuck in the mud when attempting to pass other vehicles. This will be compounded by the muddy areas being hidden by the snow.

For official information check the County Council website:

and for more local information check the Buxton Weather Watch Facebook page:

Do add comments on any local road conditions, any problems and what is passable.

The next AGM of the Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee will take place on Tuesday 10th April at 7.30pm in the Royal British Legion. Everyone is welcome – all new members will be warmly welcomed!

If you have any questions before the meeting please email Lucy M at
