Parwich tennis drama

At Parwich tennis club yesterday our redoubtable mixed doubles second team took on Darley Dale, hoping to add to our single win so far this season. We got off to a flying start when one of our opponents didn’t turn up, meaning that we were awarded three of the nine sets before a ball was even hit. Despite our affable demeanour, we were determined to dispense with the perception that we are purely social players, by setting about the task of clinching victory with a degree of grit that you can no longer find on our resurfaced courts.

A critical moment came in the second round, when Drummond and Harrison were losing 8-3, with the victor being the first to win 9 games. Refusing to be defeated, they duly won the next five games, leaving their opponents aghast at the prospect of losing the tie break, which they duly did. We staggered off the court to muted applause, since we had kept everyone else waiting so long, but it did help us secure a victory overall by 6 sets to 3. If we had adjourned to the Sycamore, which sadly wasn’t yet open, the drinks would surely have been on our opponents.

The tennis season is far from over – on Saturday-Sunday 13th-14th is the Club Singles Championship (members only). Then the Mixed Doubles Championship will be held on 20th-21st Sept – this is a semi-open competition in which only one of the pair needs to be a member. And do support club nights on Fridays from 7.30 – 9.00 pm!

Burning the midnight oil

Spare a thought for those that have been working incredibly hard on our behalf to complete the Big Lottery Fund bid for the Memorial Hall project.  The deadline is on Tuesday, and various people (including Amanda, Brian, Kevin, Lynette, Mike and Val, as well as lots of others) have put in and are still putting in a lot of hours to ensure the bid is as good as it can be.

Your commitment to this community venture is much appreciated.  Also it is good to see that Graham and Amanda can still smile despite their computer blowing up this afternoon taking a section of the bid with it.  Amanda with remarkable calm said, “Oh, it will be alright, we should only have to redo a couple of hours work“.

There has been an increase in the theft of gardening equipment recently, mainly hedge trimmers, chainsaws, etc, from gardens, sheds & outbuildings. Ensure that such items are locked away securely. Make a note of serial numbers for your possessions, mark items with your postcode plus your house number or the first two letters of the house name and maybe take photographs.

Thieves find identifiable property more difficult to sell on. Often, property recovered by the police cannot be returned to the rightful owners simply because it cannot be identified.

If you require any home security advice, please call the Crime Reduction Officers on 0845 164 1644.

Thank you.
Trisha Mellor, B Division Community Information Officer, Community Intelligence Unit, Buxton Police Station.

  • Derbyshire Constabulary can be contacted on 0845 123 33 33, or in an emergency 999.
