halloween 2 004
Through the swirling mists emerged a figure, a friendly witch ready to welcome all the vampires and ghosts to her haunted home.  Fearsome spiders and their webs dance over the ghoulish gate illuminated by the witches pumpkin.

  • subsidised trips to gardens and nurseries and horticultural talks
  • cheaper entry cost to our annual Flower and Vegetable Show
  • free refreshments at our AGM and Social Evening
  • and much more

Either give your subs to the Teasurer Ben Bennett or bring them along to our Annual General Meeting at 7-30pm Friday 6th of November in Parwich Church.

Derbyshire County Council are holding a public meeting about the B5056 closure at 7pm on Tuesday 17th November at Tissington Village Hall. Our Councillor, Simon Spencer, will be at the meeting.  We will post any further details as they become available.

If you have anything you want us to pass on to the County Council before the meeting or are unable to attend and have points you want raising, please add comments below.  Alternatively those of us in Parwich Parish can pass our thoughts on to the Parish Council for next week’s meeting, either by emailing or attending the public session at the start of the meeting.

The next Parish Council meeting is on Tuesday 3rd November at the Pavilion on Parson’s Croft.  The public can address the Council at the start of the meeting and can attend, but not participate in, the remainder of the meeting.

To see the agenda click here, and to see the unapproved minutes of the previous meeting click here (these minutes will be approved or amended as appropriate on Tuesday).

At the Parish Council Liaison meeting attended last week we were verbally told that the open meeting regarding the B5056 is planned for Tuesday 17 November 2009 at Tissington but have not yet received anything confirming these details yet.

Photos on the Blog

It is great that people are willing to share their local photos.  Indeed our photo archive pages are our most viewed pages, so including these photos is our most popular feature.

We have some valued regular contributors and some one-off contributors such as the post below.  We are happy to get photos from both.

We can be fairly flexible with the format and file size, but for the best results, when the photos are viewed in full screen, please send in images 800 or more pixels wide.  We can always make them smaller, but we can’t make them larger.

Although it is partly inevitable because of the larger Parwich population, we tend to get photos with a Parwich bias, so we would also welcome any of Alsop, Ballidon and Pikehall and the surrounding countryside.

Keep those photos coming.
