Friday 8th June – 7.45pm – Memorial Hall
Based on the book War Horse, this exciting film is set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. It begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets – British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter – before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land. Directed by Steven Spielberg

Does anyone know Lesley?

We have received the following request for information:
I don’t know whether anybody is able to help but I am trying to locate a sixty year old woman, Lesley (nee Yates), with whom I attended Lady Manners School in Bakewell. Being our sixtieth year, a school reunion has been arranged for the first weekend in July. I have only recently been contacted but, due to the passage of time being an obstacle to finding people’s whereabouts, I was asked if I could assist with locating others, one being Lesley Yates.
I think Lesley lived in Great Longstone, near Bakewell, during our schooldays. I believe that she subsequently moved to Parwich after marrying a local man from the village, although I cannot recall her married name. The reason that this sticks in my mind is that I am originally a Brownson (father Wallace Brownson who married Stephanie, paternal uncle Godfrey Brownson who married Mary, paternal grandparents Wallace and Clara Brownson from Townhead and The Cottage, Nether Green) and I remember being envious that Lesley lived in the village that held some lovely childhood memories for me. In fact, I have just spent the last two hours reminiscing over photographs, tales and information on the internet.
Lesley will now be around 60 years old.
If you are able to help, that would be great, especially given the paucity of information that I have provided. If not, then thank you for taking the time to read this e-mail.
Susan A
Emails to parwich@hotmail.co.uk will be forwarded to Susan A.

Update – June 22nd 2012: Lesley has been found.

Thank you to Cheryl W for this update:

A big thank you to everyone who brought their cars for a wash or just donated money. Current total towards the cost of new goal posts and nets is over £300 with more still to be added in. The kids were brilliant and probably most of the time were wetter than the cars that they were washing.

and to Chris H thank you for the photos

Thank you to those that turned out for the Stream & Pond clearing, Pat & John Barnett, the Peat family, Ben Ingham, Alan Purvis, Ben Bennett, Paul O’Connell, Owen Bradbury & Councillors Robert Bunting, Caroline Healy, Jane Bennett & Matt Harrison.

We have worked in conjunction with the appropriate Agencies and followed their advice. The main purpose was to remove old debris and not current summer growth. There were several particularly bad choke points, which are now freed, this will now allow any significant amounts of water to flow down the stream course and out of the village.

Mixed Fortunes

Parwich Crown Green Bowls Club

Fortunes have certainly changed dramatically in the two leagues we play in. At the start of the season we could not get a win in the Tuesday league for love nor money. Thankfully now winning a few and we did not lose in the other league. (we did not win either).

Matlock Tuesday League.
Home – 22 May – Ashwood Park.

Up until recently Ashwood have been our ‘bogie’ team. However hard we tried we did not win. This now seems to have changed. Although we shared the games two each, the ones we lost were marginal. Our points tally was a lot better than theirs. 80 points to Parwich, 70 to Ashwood. We are I believe slowly making our way up from the bottom of the league.

Next match – Away – Chatsworth – 6.30pm 29 May.

Thursday League.
Home – Lafarge Hope – 24 May.

Having said a couple of weeks ago that a draw was very unusual along comes another. We did not do well in the three doubles games, losing them two games to one and trailing by 8 points. We were rescued by the singles games winning four out of the six. Result, exactly the same as the previous drawn match 112 each. I think we may well slip even lower in the league if that is possible!

Away – Matlock Park – 31 May – 1.45pm.

We are having an away friendly with Ashbourne Park this Sunday it is usually a good afternoon and the weather looks set for us also.

Believe it or not the Green may well be used on Saturday also. Not by Parwich folk mores the pity, but by the Sheffield Caravan group. I hope they enjoy the experience, you never know as we can’t get people from the Village interested perhaps they might join the club. After all Sheffield is not far away.

Bee Swarm

Bee swarm on Tuesday 22nd May

A big thank you to Rita, Tracy Ann and Alice for helping me locate a swarm of bees on Tuesday, the day we got back from holiday. I am pleased to say the swarm is now safely hived. This was a big swarm and at this early stage of the season there is good prospect of some honey before the end of the summer. As the saying goes, a swarm in May is worth a load of hay.

If anyone comes to know of a swarm of bees needing to be hived, please ring me on 390433 or my mobile 0774 0626 804, and I will respond with alacrity. Swarming bees are normally engorged with honey and are fairly docile and hence unlikely to sting, but it is best not to approach a swarm unless you are wearing protective clothing and have a smoker.

This year’s Annual Parish meeting took on a completely different format, with the focus on Groups and Societies. It was a very relaxed, informal and enjoyable evening with opportunities to try out some Pilates moves and also have a go at cardiac massage on the dolly with the First Responders. Stepping Stones Pre-School, Bowls Club, Carnival & Rec, Over 60’s, Parwich Charities, History Society, Horticultural Society, Film Club, Fit 4 All, Tennis Club, Parwich.org and the Police were all represented with Council Representatives and the Parish Clerk there to chat to parishioners. Val & Alison from Catering4Parwich kept everyone well fed with a great selection of cakes.

Have your say – Police

This email has been send in by Derbyshire Police.

We are seeking the views of Derbyshire residents on levels of personal safety, levels of satisfaction with how the police deal with crime and anti-social behaviour and feedback from residents as to whether specific types of anti-social behaviour are a problem or not in their local area. We are also seeking an indication of how residents may wish to be communicated with by the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire later this year.

We would be very grateful if you could please take a couple of minutes to give us your views. Please click here.
