Yesterday’s power cut

As most of our readers will already know, over 200 households in Parwich, i.e. the majority of the village, experienced a power cut between roughly 8:30 AM and 21:40 PM yesterday (Sunday April 29th). We were told that this was due to a fallen tree, that had blown over during Sunday morning’s storms.

If you have any comments to make about the episode, please leave them below. For instance, were you satisfied with the way that the situation was handled by the power company? And how did you spend your Sunday? Was it a nightmare experience, or did you find ways of making it fun?

The Win One Lose One Continues

We seem to be in a bit of a ‘win one lose one’ loop at the moment and the lose one is thus far in the same league.

Matlock Tuesday League –  Home – 24 April – Bradwell A.
We cannot seem to get going in this league. Last year we started really well and were close to the top, but this year no good. Three matches three losses. Bradwell were relegated from the higher division last year and we could not do anything to win one game let alone the match. We lost all four games and the final result was Bradwell 84, Parwich 51. We must be holding everybody up at the bottom. I just keep hoping that the teams we have played thus far are the best in the league!
Next match – Away – Bakewell 1 May.

Thursday League – Away – Matlock Bath – 26 April.
What a contrast in this league. The weather was appalling and the green is very compact and tricky, but we steamed along! Although we only won one of the three doubles games are points scored were only 4 less than our opponents. The singles games were shared three each, however, our points scored were considerably more than Matlock. The final score was therefore Matlock 124, Parwich 135. Three wins so far out of four. Not bad.
Home – Whitworth Park – 3 May – 1.45pm.

I think everybody in Parwich must be watching some fabulous programme on the TV on Monday nights. Can you let me know which channel it’s on? Still nobody out there.
