Police Ringmaster Scheme

PARWICH.ORG received its first input as a member of the Ringmaster Scheme today:

Warning over online cashback banking scam – 23 June 2008

Trading standards are warning people of a new online banking scam telling them they are due a cash refund. The emails claim to be from a leading high street bank and ask people to follow a link in order to claim money. Derbyshire County Council’s trading standards team are warning people not to respond to any unsolicited emails.

An example of the latest scam email reads:”Your debit/cash card might receive a refund worth £289.40 as a result of points accumulated through online payments. “Please submit the reward request immediately and allow us 2 – 3 business days in order to process it and the money clear into your account.” Another email scam requests that people carry out “customer data verification” and asks them to login via a link on the page. By clicking on the link your computer may be vulnerable to attack from viruses or spyware.  (more…)

Yesterday’s Fun & Games

For those who missed out, here are a just a few photos of yesterday’s fun and games with the campers.  The event was well attended, had a friendly and fun atmosphere and was well organised. Despite the rain towards the end, everyone looked like they were having a great time. 

Parwich were victorious in the tug of war (2-1 to Parwich), and unless I’ve been misinformed the Parwich team was the overall winner…

Campsite Songs of Praise

Following a short sharp shower the weather held dry for the Campsite Service.  Thank you to all the Notts Caravan Club who put in the work setting up, providing the music and especially drying all the chairs.  The congregation of campers and Parwich folk was swelled by those coming for Amy Isabel’s christening later.  The Vicar led a rousing service with some joyful singing.  It was great to celebrate the feast of St Peter and St Paul in the outdoors, and a stimulating reminder that celebrating this feast day is the origin of our Wakes and has been taking place here for perhaps a thousand years.  (more…)

Record number of hits

We saw a record number of hits yesterday at PARWICH.ORG, with 902 page/post views, about 250 more than our previous best day!  In part this is because of Wakes Week, and the fact that we have been able to get some things posted on the same day.  Thank you to the Blog team and to everyone who has commented and sent in posts.  Keep them coming.

We now have had over 42,000 hits in total since our official lauch on 16th March of this year.  Also we have seen some 462 post and 697 comments.  Keep them coming.  Our remarkable success is a tribute to the whole community.

The next target is to top 1,000 hits in one day, but we can’t do it without you.
