Special Sunny Saturday

What a beautiful day!

It was one of those days when the weather was so perfect that everything felt special.  The barbeques came out, people enjoyed their gardens and the pub beer garden was put to good use.

Morning interest was provided by the first Cycling Plus Sportive event which chose to come through Parwich as part of their 100 mile route. Starting from the Donnington area over 500 cyclists took part in the event. Looking at the event website, many participants found the Peak District section the most enjoyable.

This is an incredibly important opportunity that Martin, Jean & The First Responders are providing for us all.  None of us ever knows when we might be faced with an adult, child or baby choking, a heart attack or a family member or friend who suddenly loses consciousness.

On Saturday 13th June, between 10am & 5pm make time to call into the Memorial Hall, even if it is just for a few minutes & you can be shown quickly & safely how you could save someone’s life – that life may belong to someone very close to you.   Just 5 Minutes to Save a Life – Make room in your diary for this date.       Click on post to enlarge.JUST_5_MINUTES_BHF_POSTER 111

Trip to Lincoln – 9th June

Places are still available on the Over 60’s trip to Lincoln on Tuesday 9th June.  Everyone is welcome and tickets for non-members are £10.  The bus leaves The Green at 8am and there will be plenty of time to explore Lincoln. 

This fascinating city is a mix of Roman, Norman and Medieval.  With the modern shops at the bottom of the city, there is a delightful ‘walk’ up Steep Hill to the olde shops, full of characters & charm.   The top of the hill is dominated by the Norman Castle and the magnificent Cathedral.  The Cathedral is holding an exhibition linked to the recently released film “Young Victoria” in which Lincoln Cathedral was the location for the coronation scenes. It includes the replica Edward I Coronation Chair made for the film.   To reserve a place ring Alan on 279

The next Parwich Parish Council meeting is at 7-30pm Tuesday 2nd June.  Click here to access the agenda as a pdf.

Don’t forget that the public can ask to address the meeting at the start, and that you can attend the meeting as an observer.  They will be discussing, among other things, the Flooding survey, the new substation on the Memorial Hall site and the new planning application for the change of use of the former Spar Shop.

The Memorial Hall committee have just heard the fantastic news that they have secured a grant of £25,000 from the Local Authority schools/Parwich School towards the building of our new hall. The funding committee are very encouraged that grant sources are impressed with the plans for a new hall to serve the community and are hopeful we shall get an equally successful response from other Fund holders who are currently considering our applications.

There has also been a very generous anonymous donation of £2,000 towards Project Parwich and also £15 from Judith in North Carolina. Thank you both whoever you are and it’s lovely that someone so far away wants to help. Judith, if you are ever in England after next summer, come and visit us and have a cup of tea in our new hall.

(This is in addition to the £721,100 currently on the thermometer, as we need to wait for our technical adviser to return from holiday to update it.)
