Our very very loved, but very very naughty Golden Retreiver, BART has been missing for approx 16 hours. Although Bart is renowned for “razzling” and running off, it is usually only for about 1 hour max.


We are very worried about him, if anyone should see him, please please let us know! If you don’t know Bart, he is a very dark, almost ginger Golden Retriever, very skinny. He is wearing a blue collar with Tag. (Known by some as the Ginger Fox!) Please, please can everyone keep a look out for Bart, we are all desperately worried about him and want him home.

Please contact us on 01335 390 677 or 0770 290 9484


This info from Nicki was sent in as a comment, but we have put it in as a post, in the hopes that someone will be able to find Bart.  If we can add a photo we will.

Interest in allotments

There has been a little interest in our last two posts on the idea of allotments

Parwich & District Horticultural Society discussed the idea at their last committee meeting and offered to co-ordinate any interest and possible garden sites. The easiest option would be to try to bring together those wanting space to grew vegetables with those who had land.  This might be part of a garden that is larger than needed or a re-introduction of the idea of a ‘pingle’ (a corner of a field used to grow vegetables).  Though requiring more long term planning, if there was sufficient demand the best option would be to seek a larger plot for more formal allotments.

If you are interested in having access to land for growing vegetables in Parwich or have land suitable for this, contact and we will pass the information on to the Horticultural Society.

Hello. My name is Diane Brown. At the moment I live in Atlow where I have lived for 12 years. I am looking for a house to rent for now, with a possibility of buying in the longer term: preferably somewhere with 4 bedrooms. I’m sure you’ll all agree that Parwich is a beautiful village, so of course I am interested in finding somewhere there.

I run my own business Potions Club which some of the children in your village have been to, so I’m already a bit known in Parwich. I have been keeping an eye out on your website and will continue to do so. Thank you very much.
