It is with great regret that we will have to cancel Open Gardens this year. Covid restrictions have created too many complications for our small committee to overcome alongside a smaller number of gardens able to open. This means that there will be no donations available for village groups again this year.

However, we are hoping to hold a casual evening event in July where we can open gardens for folks from the village. 

Definite plans (Boris permitting!) include the Produce Show on September 12th, a talk in October and the Bob Matthews Quiz on November 20th in the Legion. Looking forward to seeing you all then. 

Next year is the 70th anniversary of the Society and with your help we hope to have a bumper year!

One day later than normal due to Bank Holiday

For Sale

Oil Price Steady

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

Oil prices rally towards $68 as the outlook on demand improves, and the market expects a major revitalisation for global oil demand from this summer onwards. Goldman Sachs, who have been particularly bullish on oil, have stuck to their forecast that Brent Crude could hit $80 later this year.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and please allow for the May bank holiday adding an extra day to delivery times. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Time to check your tank? With a cold bank holiday weekend ahead, have you checked your tank level recently? It is a good idea to make a visual inspection, just to confirm your meter is working correctly – we have had quite a few members reach out recently to say their gauge was incorrect and they were much lower than expected, a quick inspection will rule out any risk. At the same time you can check the condition of your tank for any problems, such sags or cracks.

Rate:  £0.3885 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

The Sampson Allsopp Chest

Amongst the items posted on here for sale on behalf of Geoff and Jack Allsopp is this chest. The lid of the chest is inscribed “Sampson Allsopp 1883” . Sampson was the grandfather of Geoff and Jack. Born in Newton Grange, Sampson married Jeanetta Katherine Brownlee in 1885 in Alsop, presumably taking this chest with him to start his married life. Sampson and Jeanetta had 7 children including Francis Victor who was the father of Geoff, Jack and their 5 brothers and 2 sisters. Sampson died in 1929 and Jeanetta in 1938. They are buried here in Parwich.

It would be good to think that there may be someone out there, related to the Allsopps who might be interested in acquiring this piece of family history.

Sunday Bowling

Parwich Legion

The start of the new season of Thursday and Tuesday league matches has brought varying results for Parwich. The curtain-raiser at home to Wirksworth, played on a warm and sunny afternoon, certainly brought a valliant effort, but despite winning more games we were narrowly pipped to a loss by a mere 3 points, the final score being 127-130. A close encounter throughout indeed.
However Tuesday Captain Dawn Alsopp rallied her troops for Tuesday evening and her intrepid men and ladies replied with an impressive 80 to 47 win over Bradwell. Under the swirling dark clouds that threatened much but in the end delivered only a sprinkle the Team rose to the occasion. Only the plummeting evening temperature had a say and the evening finished with Sue Ash doing an impression of Ernest Shackleton as he set out to conquer the Antarctic.
It’s all great fun, and the Team will welcome new members, so why not turn up to one of the Sunday open sessions and have a go – all equipment can be provided. It is fervently hoped that in the coming months we will be able to acknowledge our opponents with the customary warm handshakes and the offer of a pint at the conclusion of hostilities.

Mobile Library Service Resumes

The mobile library service is being reinstated from 17th May 2021.

Oil Price Up

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

Brent Crude slips back slightly this week to $66 a barrel due to a larger than expected inventory builds.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and please allow for the May bank holiday adding an extra day to delivery times. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Remove water built up in your tank – Sunny weather can warm your tank and cause condensation to form. To prevent this causing issues we recommend using a water scavenger which will absorb contaminated water in the tank. It is simple to use, just fix the cord to the tank and drop in the scavenger. Or if you would like to test for water you can purchase a Water Test Kit. For more information please visit The Club Store.
Also, as spring has arrived and nature is now well and truly blossoming, it is a good idea to check your tank visibility to check that no greenery is starting to grow over or around your tank. If it is, please ensure you cut back any greenery that may obscure your tank so the drivers can complete a full inspection and a successful delivery.

Rate:  £0.3885 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

The Weekend at the Legion

Parwich Wakes 2021

Wakes this year starts on Saturday 26th June and some of you may be wondering why we have been a bit quiet about it! The problem we have is that it is so close to the government roadmap date of the 21st June it really is hard for us to know what to do for the best!

The Carnival and Recreation Committee have met this week and have decided that we won’t be holding the Carnival as usual but we will be doing the fancy dress competition from your home, with the judges driving around to see you all. We are also hoping to include a float category so they can follow the pick up playing the band music. We will be doing the Treasure Hunt on the Sunday, with both an adult and junior category and the Hill Race will be similar to last year with a few more categories. The rest really does depend on the next two government announcements. I know the Odd Fellows are meeting and are hoping to carry on as best they can – dependent on the next announcement on the 17th May so hopefully we will be able to put the full programme together after that date. We will also be working with the Legion and the Sycamore to provide as best a Wakes as we can whilst staying safely within the regulations.

We are always more than happy to take any suggestions on what we can do – just Facebook Messenger or email lucywigley@googlemail.com  and hopefully we will be able to give you some more concrete news in a month.

In the meantime start planning your fancy dress and running up Parwich Hill to improve your times!

Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Brent Crude has jumped this week to $67 a barrel (up $4) on news of large Crude draws, indicating recovering global demand.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and subject to supply and weather conditions. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

Exocet Additives will lower carbon emissions, stabilise fuel, clean injectors, inhibit sludge formation in your tank, and improve overall fuel performance and efficiency. Additives can be purchased from The Oil-Club Store. If you have an AGA, then please ensure you order the Cooker Additive.

Legion ales for this week….

Church on Sunday

Church meets tomorrow

Tomorrow on Zoom we’re celebrating the 70th anniversary of the formation of the Peak National Park that we all enjoy.  We’ll be using contemporary words from the Northumbria Community and (hopefully) singing hymns in our homes while muted so not broadcasting to everyone else!

The congregation will be gathering 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 access the words.

We hope to see and hear you.

Meeting of Parwich Parish Council

The next meeting of Parwich Parish Council will be held on Wednesday the 21st April 2021 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.

Hen owners – Fox Alert No. 2

Here at Pond Cottage we have lost two chickens, presumably to the fox that Vicky saw on 4th April. Going on the location of the residual feathers, one was taken in the field between Pond Cottage and Veronica’s and the other in the field behind Pond Cottage, on the boundary with Veronica’s field. Both would have been taken in the daytime, one today and one probably yesterday (or today, or the day before). I am going to keep mine in for a while so please be careful if you have hens as I am sure he / she will be on the lookout for an alternative source of lunch. The fox is clearly pretty fearless and cunning!
