Parish Council Meeting

The next meeting of Parwich Parish Council will be held on Wednesday the 15th July 2020 at 7:30 pm.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak Parish Councils continue to be advised not to meet face to face unless this is the only way that they can conduct their business.

The meeting will therefore once again be conducted using Zoom. The agenda contains login details that can be used by members of the public to join the meeting.

There is also a telephone number which will enable you to listen to the meeting and speak when permitted.

If you have not used Zoom before you are strongly advised to download their app in advance. This will enable you set it up on your device and familiarise yourself with its operation.

The agenda is here.

 

Oil Price Steady

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Although many countries are lifting lockdowns and returning to some normality, any increase in demand has been offset by the stockpile of oil built up before production cuts. As a result Brent crude rates seem to have settled at around $42 a barrel. Delivery times are currently 5 to 10 working days.

NOTE Due to Covid-19 some suppliers are no longer leaving delivery dockets (PODs) at the time of delivery, they will be sending them via post after delivery instead. Due to current delays with the postal service in some areas, please allow a week or so for them to arrive.

Rate:  £0.2650 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Welcome Back!

Video: Please watch.

This weekend, a number of pubs across the county will re-open after almost 15 weeks of lockdown.

As much as we’d like it to be, the experience won’t be one we recognise.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply. You may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with test and trace.

We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of Coronavirus so please maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

In this short video, Chief Inspector Becky Webster and Mike Kay, Head of Licensing at Derby City Council, discuss the extra steps that licensed premises across Derbyshire have had to take.

Staff at the Holly Bush Inn in Makeney let us in for a glimpse behind the scenes, showing how the pub experience has massively changed to ensure people can visit safely – with new measures such as face shields for bar staff now in place.

Covid-19 still presents a significant and deadly threat to public health. People should continue to wash their hands regularly and maintain social distancing.

Please reconsider your plans if you arrive somewhere and establish that distancing isn’t achievable.

Be aware of how excess drinking and violent behaviour may impact the emergency services at this time.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

We want everyone to have a good time, but please do so safely, responsibly, and with respect for the public health measures in place.

Policing in Derbyshire Survey

If you can, please take a couple of minutes to complete the anonymous survey available here https://bit.ly/C19Policing

No matter where you live in Derbyshire, whether an urban, suburban or rural area, your views are important.

The survey is a quick snapshot of opinion and will close on 7 August. So if you can, please share this with your friends and colleagues so all neighbourhoods have their chance to have their voice heard.

Church Meets on Sunday

This week we’re reflecting on what we were doing ten years ago. That’s certainly different from where we are now! It’s a Family Service format which means we join in many of the prayers, there’s a reflection & activity, and we aim to keep it short!

We’re gather between 1730 and 1800:

  • 1730 bring your own tea/coffee & cake for a chat if you wish
  • 1800 service starts

Contact Rev Carollyn on revcarollyn@peakfive.org or 664132 or Andrew C on andrew@colliefamily.plus.com or 390684 for info on how to join in via computer, tablet and phone (including landline) and accessing the words.

We hope to see and hear you.

Not long before we re-open

Parwich Hall in 1924

We have recently been sent digital copies of photographs of Parwich Hall in 1924. At that time the Hall was owned by Major Gainsford, a colliery owner from Sheffield who bought the estate in the 1915 sale and then sold it in 1931 to the Crompton- Inglefields. A woman appears on a number of the photos and we have been told that the text says she is “Miss Ina”. Major Gainsford’s wife’ name was Edith Geraldine so it is possible that Miss Ina might have been Geraldine which was misread. Or maybe a name she was known based on Geraldine. If anyone has any information on the Gainsfords and the mysterious Miss Ina, we should love to hear it.

Grey Bin Wednesday

…and Food Caddy

As businesses such as pubs and restaurants open their doors to the public from Saturday 4 July, we are offering advice to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply and you may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with track and trace.
We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of coronavirus so maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

We anticipate that the city, and towns across the county, will be busy when establishments re-open for the first time so if you need to book a taxi, make sure you do so well in advance.

The advice is that you should avoid using public transport where possible but if you do need to use a train or bus, remember that face coverings must be worn.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

Owners of on-licences premises will need to have the appropriate risk assessments and plans in place to ensure both staff and customer safety. Owners should seek advice from their local environmental health officers and licensing teams for further advice if required.

Inspector Emma Marshall said: “It’s great for the local economy that the pubs and restaurants can re-open, however people visiting need to be aware that their evening out is likely to be very different from previous nights out in the towns and cities.

“People will need to be patient as queues are likely to be longer than expected and respect the rights of other to socially distance while everyone takes the opportunity to enjoy themselves. We will be supporting our colleagues in environmental health to identify breaches and take appropriate action where necessary.”

Councillor Jonathan Smale, Cabinet Member for Communities, Neighbourhoods and Streetpride, said: “Derby has been awarded Purple Flag status as a safe and welcoming place to come and enjoy a night out for the past six years. Coronavirus isn’t going to change that. We’re working really hard with our great venues to ensure that it’s going to be just as safe to come into Derby and enjoy a really good night out whilst following the necessary guidelines to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

“Things are obviously going to be different and so we’re asking people to be respectful, patient and work with us to make sure we can continue to enjoy a safe night out.”

Traffic

We received this from John V. But I’m sure it echoes a lot of people’s thoughts. We’re all using more delivery services than ever right now and the drivers must be under huge pressure to meet delivery targets.

“Can I just ask that everyone reminds themselves of the dangers of walking on roads through the village. I don’t mean to patronise, but I’m becoming increasingly concerned at the speed of some and mostly delivery vans entering the village from Alsop. I’ve also seen a sudden trend for reversing vans and lorries around here, where there are no pavements, sometimes pretty quickly. 
 
I’m guessing these behaviours will be seen elsewhere in the village and particularly at a time when children are not at school, it would be great to know that they too had been reminded of the need to be aware of traffic, even, but maybe especially in a place like Parwich. Thanks…”

The Parish Annual meeting for Parwich had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Normally at this meeting the Chair and the Responsible Financial Officer present a report on the activities and finances of the Council over the past year respectively.

A thousand years of celebration

Villages’ Wakes grew out of communities celebrating their church’s patron saint. For us that is St Peter whose feast day is the 29th of June, still used to to calculate the start of Parwich Wakes; our Wakes beginning on the nearest Saturday to the 29th of June.

The current St Peter’s Church was built in 1872/73, replacing the smaller Norman building also dedicated to St. Peter. We can see some features of the old Church today in the current building, including the tympanum over the west door, the archway of the west door, the archway between the tower and the nave and the carved faces high up in the side chapel. It is thought that the old church was built in the late eleventh or early twelfth century and would almost have certainly been dedicated to St. Peter as it is unusual for the dedication to be changed. It is possible that there was a previous Saxon church here, but the evidence is inconclusive.

The old St Peter’s in a nineteenth century water colour

So we have been celebrating as a community at the end of June for at least nine hundred years, though perhaps much longer. These celebrations from the start would have included a lot more than just a church service. Processions and theatricals would have been included, possibly by the fourteenth or fifteen century involving a play celebrating Robin Hood and Maid Marion. The prettiest or best dressed youngsters might even have be elected to be that year’s Marion and Robin, a precursor to out Carnival parade and fancy dress competition. It is likely that there were local sports, foot races and perhaps archery competitions, certainly when archery practice was compulsory from the fourteenth right up to the sixteen century. ‘Beers’ were a big part of the celebrations, where local guilds and groups brewed beer to sell during the revels. This tradition was revived not so long ago with the Oddfellows Ale, brewed by Leatherbritches. The ‘beers’ raised money either to fund candles and devotion in the church for each guild’s favourite saint or to help guild members when times were hard. Continue Reading »
