A mining company’s application to work a Peak District open cast quarry for six years has been approved.

Nifty Netballers strike again

netball1The Parwich ladies romped to a very convincing win last night in Leek. The final score was 26-4 and it has to be said that the defending players – Sarah, Nia and Ruth did not break into a sweat! All sweating was left to Olivia Flowers, who has returned to the Parwich team after short child rearing break.

February newletter from PC Ian Cooper



                             Update from your local officer
                             February 2009


I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year.  At the New Year we had a good Mappleton Boat Race and Bridge jump.

Thank you to residents, and visitors to the event, for your co operation with this.

Across our Section we have, in recent weeks had a few cars broken into, and a few outbuildings broken into in rural locations. Some have occurred on our area, and are worth mentioning to you. (more…)
