Oil Price – Slightly Down

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

Oil prices end the week slightly down on last Friday, with Brent Crude at $110 per barrel in midday trading on Friday. Once again, any gains due to the ban on imports of Russian Crude and oil products by the end of the year are being offset by the slowing Chinese oil demand due to new Covid lockdowns across major cities.
Estimated delivery times are 5 to 10 working days. Delivery times are only an estimated delivery time. Please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered.

If you are low on heating oil and need a quick delivery, or your oil levels wont last until the end of the delivery timeframe for this order then this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.9245 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Meeting of Parwich Parish Council

The next meeting of Parwich Parish Council will be held on Wednesday the 18th May 2022 at 7:00 pm in the Memorial Hall.

The meeting will be adjourned at 8:00pm so that the Parish Annual Meeting can take place.

The previous minutes of the Parish Council indicated that we had hoped to present the results of the recent Housing needs Survey at the Parish Annual Meeting. However we have recently been advised by Derbyshire Dales District Council that this will not be available until the end of the month, so this will not be possible. The survey will be discussed at a future meeting of the Parish Council.

The agendas are here.

Parwich Wakes Hill Race

Car Treasure Hunt

We’re using the term “Slow start” to describe our season so far – the fact is that after six matches (five in the Thursday League and, this week, our opening gambit in the Tuesday campaign,) we have yet to record a win! Despite injury concerns within our ranks it has to be admitted that things are not going too well on the result front. But there are positives – there are ALWAYS positives – we have got some pretty difficult away fixtures out of the way and feel confident we’ll reverse these in the home returns.

Thursday of last week we took on Top of the Table Tideswell at home. I’ve got to say they looked a class outfit from the moment they turned up. Those not on the green at any one time didn’t sit and watch, but pervaded around the extremities coaxing and cajoling their warriors to victory. From what I saw I’m expecting them to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season; I think they’re looking the team to beat. So, no disgrace there then, we gave it out best shot but came up short to the tune of 150 to 100. Great people though, was a privilege to meet and play them.

Tuesday this week we ventured forth to our old friends at Bakewell to start the Tuesday League season with the difference in format that that brings. What an enjoyable game as we came close several times in a contest that kept the interest until the end. The green there is, shall we say, somewhat different to the rest and I didn’t view the 84-56 reverse as too disheartening. But no pudding!!

But talking of differing greens, two days later we travelled to Youlgrave. Now if there was ever a place giving home advantage it has to be this; the crown is like a scale model of Kinder Scout. We were trounced! A maximum 153 to our 56 in return; not our finest hour. I thought we were in with a chance a few times but on each occasion our opponents moved into top gear and that was that.

But are we downhearted? Not a chance! Apples will grow again and our day will come. Keep going Parwich, two home matches this week against Burbage (Tuesday) and Hathersage (Thursday) and smiles will back on the faces and pride will have been restored. Come On Parwich! …

Oil Price – Up Again

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

Oil prices were set for a second consecutive weekly gain as Brent Crude tops $113 per barrel in early trading on Friday morning as the EUs proposal to ban imports of all Russian Crude and oil products by the end of the year trumped market concerns about slowing Chinese oil demand.
Estimated delivery times are 5 to 10 working days. Delivery times are only an estimated delivery time. Please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered.

If you are low on heating oil and need a quick delivery, or your oil levels wont last until the end of the delivery timeframe for this order then this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.9980 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

The Annual Meeting of the Parish Council and the Parish Annual Meeting will be held in the Memorial Hall from 7.00pm on Wednesday the 18th of May.

The Parish Council is required to hold a Parish Annual Meeting each year. This meeting is not a formal Parish Council meeting and has no set format.


As in the years before the pandemic the Parish Council will take the opportunity to provide summaries of activities and finances during the past year.

We will also be sharing the results of the recent housing needs survey.


Village organisations are also welcome to talk about their own past and planned activities if they wish.

Can you let me know if the Blog would like to be represented? You can make a statement or provide one to be read out if you prefer – or you can simply come and hear about other organisations.

If you wish, copies of any statement can be saved on the Parish Council website as well.

Meet the Neighbours

Please welcome Donna and Mark:

After what seems like an age we have finally made our big move to Parwich. We (Mark and Donna) moved in to Barn Cottage on Creamery Lane over the Easter Bank Holiday and whilst there is still A LOT of work to do on the house, we are settling in and are already loving life in Parwich. Thank you to everyone who has already said hello and introduced themselves whilst we have been finding our way around with our two dogs, Misty (black lab) and Tess (lurcher), we already feel very welcomed!

We decided to take the plunge and make our ‘escape to the country’ when we both found ourselves able to work from home. On the rare occasions when we have to venture to the office, I (Donna) am a digital project manager for the NHS in Leeds, and Mark is a software engineer for a small private company based out of Nottingham University delivering digital workflow solutions.

We moved from Clitheroe in Lancashire after falling in love with Parwich last year. We plumped for Barn Cottage as a project… it’s probably what you’d call ‘quirky’ and we have a long way to go with major renovations…. we plan to temporarily move out whilst we make the improvements and would love to be able to stay in the village during that time, so if anyone knows of anywhere that may be available for a six-month or so let, please let us know…  we will do our utmost to cause as little disruption for everyone but please bear with us while we get there!

Aside from home (improvement) challenges and walking the dogs, we both love motorsports, F1 and MotoGP in particular, (that’s watching not participating!). Mark has a real passion for film and TV and runs his own online review site, and I’m a keen runner and looking forward to finding new local routes to explore/get lost on!

We can’t wait to get firmly rooted in Parwich life… be sure to say hello, we look forward to meeting you all!

Carl W and Liz E have put together an exciting car treasure hunt which goes around the surrounding villages. The treasure hunt is on behalf of the Carnival and Recreation Committee so any funds will be used for our events.

The Treasure Hunt will take place on Saturday 21st May, starting from 3pm at the Legion. Final papers will need to be submitted back to the Legion by 6pm. £5 entry per car. BBQ food will be served at the Legion from 5.30pm.

More information will be available soon but make sure you save the date 😊

Meet the Neighbours

It is some time since we have said welcome from the blog to our new residents. Lockdown didn’t help. If anyone has moved in over the last couple of years or so and would to say hello to the village please get in touch. To start us off please give a warm welcome to Kirsty:

Hello

My name is Kirsty Norman and I moved into the village a few weeks ago. I am living in Brook Cottage ( not the one nearest The Sycamore, the other one, next to the footpath that goes to the churchyard) so if you are walking past and see me, I would love it if you  say “hello” 😊

I am new to Parwich but not to the area. Although a Southerner originally, I have been in Derbyshire since 1994.

Until recently, I was living in Alstonefield and prior to that, I was  in Bonsall, near Matlock.

Back in the 90’s my family and I used to have The Watts Russell Arms pub in Hopedale and The Manifold Inn at Hulme End. So if you frequented either back in the day, I may have served you a beer or made you a ham cob!

My parents and sister also live in the area, in Alstonefield and near Longnor.

Thank you to those people that I have already spoken to, you have made me feel very welcome.

Regards

Kirsty
