Wednesday Bin Update :(

This from Derbyshire Dales –

Increased and significant Covid related staff absences means our crews will be focusing on household waste collections as a priority at the moment.

Household waste rounds will continue as normal, but for the foreseeable future food waste collections will only take place alongside the household waste rounds.

Garden waste collections are suspended, together with food waste collections that would usually take place alongside garden waste rounds.

Recycling collections will take place where possible. Please leave out your recycling as crews will try to pick up recycling where they can once they have completed household waste rounds.

Additional recycling can be left out so long as it is presented according to this guidance on our website.

Christmas trees will be collected once garden waste rounds restart.

And food caddy.

Christmas trees can be recycled click for details

NOTE: Due to shortage of crews as a result of Covid infections, the Green Bin and associated caddy has been suspended on Monday and Tuesday this week. At the moment it’s not clear if it will go ahead on Wednesday.

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

Brent crude remains at an 11 month high, just above $55 a barrel, on hopes that the incoming Biden administration will quickly push through yet another round of stimulus payments. However, please note suppliers are now very busy and delivery times are 7 to 14 working days.

Icy Conditions – With the cold weather causing very icy conditions, please allow extra time for your delivery to arrive, as the tankers will be having more trouble than usual with the roads, as well as increased demand. We suggest ordering when you have 6-8 weeks worth of oil left, to ensure you do not run out even with the heating on full and in case of any delivery delays caused by icy conditions or drivers off having to isolate due to Covid-19.
Please note, delivery times in the winter months are all subject to weather and supply conditions, and we are also seeing a much higher level of tanker drivers off than we have in previous years due to self-isolation.

If you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.3475 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Lifts for Vaccinations

If anyone is absolutely stuck for a lift to receive their immunisation against Covid 19,  several First Responders are becoming available to help out once they have themselves been vaccinated. We would wear masks and possibly at least be preferable to a taxi or bus.
As we are already volunteering at various sites to help with the rollout we may not be free. However please call Sue H  on 334 if you do need transport to and from your vaccine and we will do our best.

The directors of public health in Derby and Derbyshire issue a plea to the public to follow regulations as the NHS deals with busiest period so far during the pandemic. 

Derbyshire Local Resilience Forum (LRF), which brings together councils, emergency services and health organisations to tackle the pandemic have seen a significant increase on the pressure placed on our NHS following a steep rise in Covid-19 cases in the area. 

During the last month the number of patients in hospital with confirmed Covid-19 increased by 67% and this continues to rise on a daily basis.

Dean Wallace, Director of Public Health, Derbyshire County Council said: “The reality is that every contact that people have with those outside their household or bubble creates a risk of passing on the virus. One in three people who have the virus show no symptoms, so it is easy to transmit it to others without knowing, and a vulnerable person could be part of every chain.

“There are huge pressures on the NHS in Derbyshire and across the country. Locally, nearly 25% of hospital beds are occupied by people with Covid 19. We all have a part to play in making sure that our hospitals can continue to provide the cancer treatment, elective surgery and other support that we need. Please observe the lockdown, reduce your contact with others, get the vaccine when you are contacted for an appointment and use the community testing facilities when they are available in your area.”

Dr Robyn Dewis, Director of Public Health, Derby City Council, added:

“The rapid rise in COVID cases means that we are at a crucial tipping point locally and nationally, and our NHS is facing extreme pressure. 

“Following lockdown regulations is more essential now than ever, as we are facing the most difficult period of the pandemic so far. We must stay at home unless it is for essential reasons, and if we leave our homes we must keep our distance, regularly wash our hands and wear a face covering we can. We should also isolate and apply for a test if we have COVID symptoms, and be vaccinated as soon as we are offered an appointment.

“These individual actions may seem small, but they make a huge difference in ensuring our local health service has the capacity it needs and in keeping ourselves and loved ones safer.” 

The LRF would like to issue the following advice: 

• Do not visit A&E if it’s not an emergency, call NHS 111 or visit one of Derbyshire’s five urgent treatment centres.
• Adhere to the lockdown regulations and following the hands, face, space guidance, this is crucial to reducing the spread of the virus and the pressure on hospitals.
• Have a vaccine as soon as one if offered, this is also crucial to helping reduce the spread of the virus.
• Following vaccination it is essential to still follow the Government guidance.

Help Needed

A lady has been in contact asking if there is anyone local who could possibly offer support for her elderly parents who live in Parwich.

Her father needs support, not necessarily physical but just to have someone there as he has fallen in the past. It could be just half an hour a day just so he can get on his stair lift and go downstairs and have a bit of quality of life. Carers have been asked but as they can’t get their equipment into their home they are not able to help. 

They are offering payment but that is something that would be discussed between them and whoever may take on the position.

If anyone knows of anyone who may be able to help please contact Lucy Burlinson on 390112 or message the Parwich helpers facebook page. 

Thank you very much 😊

Warning – Vaccine Scam

Please be aware of the following sent to us by Action Fraud. Please keep an eye on our vulnerable residents who may be taken in at this worry time:

As of 7 January 2021, Action Fraud had received 57 reports from members of the public who have been sent text messages claiming to be from the NHS, offering them the opportunity to sign up for coronavirus vaccinations. The texts ask the recipient to click on a link which takes them to an online form where they are prompted to input personal and financial details. In some cases the online form has looked very similar to the real NHS website.

Pauline Smith, Head of Action Fraud, said: 
“Remember, the vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free of charge. The NHS will never ask you for details about your bank account or to pay for the vaccine. If you receive an email, text message or phone call purporting to be from the NHS and you are asked to provide financial details, this is a scam.”

How to protect yourself:

In the UK, coronavirus vaccinations will only be available via the National Health Services of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a local GP surgery or pharmacy, to receive your vaccination. Remember, the vaccinations are free of charge and you will not be asked for a payment.

The NHS will never:

  • ask for your bank account or card details
  • ask for your PIN or banking passwords
  • arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
  • ask for documentation to prove your identity, such as a passport or utility bills

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726, which is free of charge.

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.

Derbyshire Dales Lockdown News

The rules going into this lockdown weekend
Going into this lockdown weekend please remember it’s against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble.

You cannot leave home for recreational or leisure purposes (such as for a picnic or a social meeting).

So you should minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to exercise. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.

Government rules define “stay local” as staying in the village, town or part of the city where you live.

Parwich Helpers – A Thank You

As we enter a further lockdown only days into the New Year, Parwich .org has reminded us constantly of those who have volunteered to shop, collect medicines and run errands for our community, all so willingly undertaken.

As well as Lucy, Lucy, Cheryl, Rosie, Karen and Liz there are the nameless Parwich Helpers.

So with weeks more of lockdown and restrictions, thank all of you for your selflessness and generosity, even putting yourselves at risk from this wretched Covid. Huge thanks from Lynette and me and I am sure many others who will want to add their names.

Hen Lockdown

Seeing the advert for a cockerel has prompted me to let people know that it is a difficult time for poultry keepers. For anyone unfamiliar with keeping poultry, since 14 Dec 2020 all poultry and other captive birds have had to be separated from wild birds by being housed or totally enclosed in netted pens. Birds cannot free range. This is due to avian flu within the UK and applies whether you keep one bird or thousands. Further information and updates on locations of disease outbreaks can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influenza-bird-flu

First Responders

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE PARWICH FIRST RESPONDERS

The Parwich First Responders held their AGM by Zoom on 8 December 2020.

4 responders that are not shielding have been carrying on providing a response services to Parwich and the surrounding area during this awful pandemic.

The First Responders have had a request from the ‘Call to Arms’ to support the roll out of vaccinations across Derbyshire. This is a huge task that the NHS is facing and the responders are very willing to provide support where they can. Some of the responders have already provided a support role at Bakewell Hospital where rollout of the vaccine started the week before Christmas and is continuing throughout January. Rollout of the vaccine is starting on the 7th January 2021 at St Oswald’s and again some of the Parwich Responders will be providing support to the clinics there this week.

Responders will continue to carry out the First Responding Role in Parwich as well as the support to the Call to Arms.

Funding is still an issue for the First Responders. They rely on donations to keep equipment going such as batteries etc for defibrillators. Last year this came at a cost of nearly £400. If anyone has any ideas about fund raising in these challenging times we would be delighted to hear about them.

We are always looking for more people to join the existing small team (7). This pandemic has highlighted what an important role the First Responders play. Full training to become a First Responder is provided and the time commitment is determined by individuals. You offer as much or as little of your time as you want. If anyone would like more information about becoming a First Responder please contact Sue Hughes 390334.

We wish you a Happy New Year and hopefully it will not be long before we all start to resume some sort of normality.

Stay safe.

Parwich First Responders

House Wanted to Rent

Can anyone help? Hopefully we will be starting building work on our house in Creamery Lane in late January/February. We need somewhere to live while this is going on, preferably in the village. Does anyone have or know of a house that we could rent for up to six months at the most. We need two bedrooms and it can be furnished or unfurnished. We promise not to throw wild parties or grow weed in the bathroom and we will look after it immaculately. If you could phone me on 07970 490010 that would be fantastic. Patti Beasley

Dales to move into Covid Tier 4
Central government has moved all of Derbyshire – including the Derbyshire Dales – into Covid Tier 4 from one minute past midnight tonight.

Three quarters of England’s population will be under the toughest Covid rules from Thursday after it emerged that 60% of UK coronavirus cases are now the new, more transmissible, strain of Covid-19.

Being in Tier 4 means we cannot leave or be outside of the place we are living unless we have a reasonable excuse.
