Increase in dog mess – AGAIN

I’ve yet again had to pick up dog mess on Parsons Croft and a neighbour has also had to pick up someone elses dog poo this morning too. The school are regularly using this field and so are small children and this just isn’t acceptable. The dog mess is from a large dog and it isn’t a small amount!

We will all be keeping an eye out and if anyone is spotted leaving dog mess they will immediately be reported for a possible fine.

If you are using Parsons Croft for dogs, which like many I do too, then be responsible take your dog to the bottom of the field to do its business away from where the kids play and PICK IT UP! Don’t just let them run around and don’t watch them as that’s when it happens! We are watching you.

So the moral is don’t be a moron and face a big fine, bag and bin it and everything will be fine.

Have Your Say on DDDC Services

Have your say on council services

Derbyshire Dales District Council is undertaking a Resident Survey this month, asking for views on the services it delivers and how local people feel about the area. The information will help the District Council to improve the policies and services it delivers while finding out what matters most to local people. 

A randomly selected group of residents are receiving a copy of the survey through the post, which they can complete online if they wish. Members of the District Council’s online panel of residents will also receive a link to complete the survey.

Any resident can also complete the survey now at https://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/residentsurvey21

A District Council spokesperson said: “This year’s survey has two new features. First, residents will be asked to record their views and the reasons for them, as well as selecting a graded response. Second, we are requesting postcodes information to assist us in identifying the areas where we need to focus our actions and to follow up on any points raised.”

For more information about the survey contact Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Policy Officer on 01629 761240 during office hours [Tuesday to Thursday].

The spokesperson added: “The Derbyshire Dales Online Panel is one of the ways in which we listen to residents and people who work in the Dales. Around 950 people have already joined the Panel and we’d love to have more.

“Panel members respond to online surveys on topics that are of interest to them and receive fewer than six surveys a year.” To join the Panel go to www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/enewsreg

Tensions Rise as the Final Chapter Opens

As the heady days of the summer solstice give way to the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, bowling folk prepare to stow their woods ahead of the coming snowfalls, fireworks, carols on the green and the Six Nations Tournament. Though not, however, before important conclusions of the present campaign’s business over the coming couple of weeks. In the Tuesday competition we have our last home match this week when we entertain Whitworth Park, finishing next Tuesday far north in the wilds of Bradwell. Whilst in the much sought-after Thursday league our account closes this week with a must-win encounter at Matlock Bath, as the aroma of a thousand industrial deep fat friers will waft gently o’er the green. (Hmm, may even partake when the game’s over, methinks.) It will then be left for us to chew our nails over the following week while Bradwell fulfil their 2 games in hand in their quest to overturn us.Last week’s matches were certainly noteworthy. Tuesday we were at home to Chatsworth, whose strength of personnel is commendation indeed considering that the Duke himself appears not to be able to get a place in the team. That it was a close one cannot be denied and as the last pairing was played out mental arithmetic was being performed in heads of all those present: a point here, a point there, would make the difference. Hush descended as the outcome of the final end produced a tie, 73 points apiece, honours even and warm handshakes all round. Thursday then saw our last home game in this league, a tense affair against Matlock Golf Club. Once again it was close, could have gone either way for long periods, but Parwich did overcome in the end by 122 points to 104. Was this margin enough, you’ll all be asking? Well there’s no easy answer to this, you’ll just have to read next week to find out.

Oil Price Steady

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

Around 80 percent of Gulf of Mexico oil production remains shut in after Hurricane Ida according to BSEE data, holding oil at around $73 a barrel for Brent Crude this week.

Delivery times 7 to 10 days, but due to driver shortages in some areas these times are now an estimated delivery time, so please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered. If you are low on heating oil this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Cut back any overgrown greenery – As we come to the end of the summer months, greenery is at its fullest. Therefore it is a good idea to cut back any overgrowth that may be surrounding your tank or obscuring access to your property, so that the tanker drivers are able to access your property, inspect whether the tank is safe, and to deliver your oil safely. Drivers are required to inspect at least 3 sides of a tank, and may not be able to successfully complete a delivery if this is not possible or their access is obscured.

Rate:  £0.4301 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Oil Price Up

Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Oil prices continue to rise with Brent Crude up at $73 a barrel as a number of refineries in Louisiana remain off line and could take weeks to restart after Hurricane Ida passed through.

Delivery times 7 to 10 days, but due to driver shortages in some areas these times are now an estimated delivery time, so please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered. If you are low on heating oil this group order will not be suitable.

Winning Will Go to Who Most Wants It

We have a couple of weeks to catch up on since my last report on the World of crown green bowling, two weeks have elapsed and it’s fair to say that these have brought mixed fortunes indeed for the Parwich Team.Unfortunately the Tuesday game at home to Hope Works was called off as Hope failed to get a team together. For whatever reason their facility has not been open all year and thus their players have had to be on the road playing every match away from home, maybe some of their number are feeling the strain of this. That moved us onto the Thursday when we played at home to Bakewell. Another win was gained, the score being 127 to 104, albeit by a far narrower than Bradwell’s 147-78 triumph over Youlgreave, thus they remain hot on our heels for the top spot and ended that week gaining 20 points on us.Last week quirks of the fixtures secretaries pitted us with two awaydays to Youlgreave. Indeed a hard place to win at as the green is a little more complex, shall we say, than the standard upturned saucer shape of a standard bowling green. The week panned out with us sustaining two fairly heavy defeats against a team to which home advantage has certainly showed this season, but no sour grapes as a title-chasing side must be able to conquer all obstacles and scorn in the face of such difficulties. Not having been there I’m unable to comment in detail on Tuesday’s encounter, but had then to prepare for the vital Thursday game to try and maintain our hold on the top. The team started well, but quickly fell away as home bowlers sent jacks to corners of their green that defied the laws of physics whenever woods were sent after them, and in the end we had to shake hands and take the 137 to 100 defeat on our collective chin. The season now nears its conclusion, only three Tuesday and two Thursday League games left. With Bradwell hot on our heels and a further two games in hand, and Bakewell bringing up a very close third, we would do well to hang on to win the League, but I for one will not give up until the last wood is bowled, as personally at this moment that goal is one I wish for with every fibre of my heart!

Changes to District Council Boundaries

The interactive map in the consultation shows the current, previously proposed and latest proposals for changing Derbyshire District Council ward boundaries. “Dovedale & Parwich” and part of what was “Carsington Water” are merged into one ward. The previous proposal was to call this new ward “White Peak”. The revised proposals give the ward the name “Dovedale, Parwich & Brassington”. You can support this change (or not) by responding to the consultation.

The Parish Council wants to have material removed from the Sheepwash and Jubilee Pond to reduce the risk of flooding in the future and improve their appearance.

A tender form for a three year contract has been created on the Parish Council website which can be seen here.

If you are interested in tendering please use the form on the council site or contact the Clerk.

Please bring this opportunity to the attention of anyone else you know who may be interested.
