Whose Rams?


Thank you to all who helped us track down the owners. The rams are now safely home.

A huge limb off one of our beech trees at the perimeter of the croft had fallen onto the boundary fence. Mike and Gill R

If anyone can help us find the owner of 4 rams which have taken up
residence in the croft at Flaxdale Houe, we would much appreciate it.
The rams look quite happy grazing away, and leaving their droppings, but
they are sharing the croft with my beehives which I visit daily. I think
they may have been in the croft since Thursday, when the gates were
briefly left open (for 30 minutes) while I went up to Newhaven to
collect our groceries at Stanedge Grange.

Mike and Gill R

The images attached should enable the owner to identify them. They are
big beasts with big coats as you can see

Admin and Secretarial Services

Are you looking for some help with your admin?  I work for a few local businesses, and individuals doing office based work. My tasks vary between writing copy, proofreading, preparing figures for accountants, correspondence, general office work and PA-type tasks.  I work either remotely or at their home office on a self employed basis.  On occasion I have a few hours a week during which I can help anyone in or near to Parwich with their office administration (preferably to coincide with school hours). 

I have a degree in Latin (Dunelm), computer literacy skills (Microsoft and Apple) and experience of running a business and managing staff.  I can provide support on an ad hoc basis, with the option of more regular provision if required.

Please contact me at I can provide further information, a CV and references, if required.
