WW1 Shrovetide

Thank you to Cheryl W for sending us this piece from the ANT. Does anyone know anything about Cpl J H Robinson? If you have any knowledge of those who volunteered or enlisted, or any stories you have had passed down in your family about life during the WWI period, we should love to hear about it. Don’t forget the talk on Monday evening when Parwich will start it’s work on the WWI in Parwich project.

MEMBERS of the Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Committee have taken a ball back to a village in France where it was used to play the game during the First World War.
The 1916 ball was taken back to the spot in Sus St Leger, where the match was played, by members of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment.
It was part of a research trip as the game’s organising committee gathers pictures and information ready for a commemoration in 2016.
Members are planning to commission a painting of the game played against the backdrop of the buildings that remain in the village, which was largely untouched during the war.
A limited run of 300 Royal Doulton figurines depicting the soldiers kicking the ball will also be produced.
Committee chairman Brell Ewart and secretary Mick Betteridge, along with an interpreter and a driver, met the village’s Mayor, Marc Dufour, and elder statesman Charles Gavory for a walk through the streets.
Mr Ewart said: “This visit has been a number of months in the planning.
“There are very few records of the game and, with the committee planning to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the game in 2016, a visit was essential in order to establish links and gather information.
“One of the principal reasons for the visit was to photograph the village to produce an accurate backdrop for the oil painting.
“We knew the game was played in Sus St Leger, as this is recorded on the ball goaled by Cpl J H Robinson, of Parwich. We also knew that men from Ashbourne in the Sherwood Foresters were billeted there at Shrovetide in 1916.”
The game was played in snow and Lt Colonel Goodman arranged for two companies to play as Up’Ards and two more as Down’Ards.
Mr Ewart added: “The 2016 anniversary is very special.
“Sending a ball to France in 1916 for the game to be played by men from the town is probably one of the most prominent actions ever taken by a Shrovetide committee.”

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

The wonderful 2014 summer continues, and rain gauge or not it’s pretty irrelevant.

Some high temperatures were recorded this past week, but the weather has changed into a cooler, fresher pattern, maybe with some showers in the coming week. In the longer term, things look a little more changeable, but not much prolonged rain is forecast.

More Winning

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Well it’s beginning to get critical now as we are still doing rather well in the league. Fortunately we only had one match this week although the Open Doubles on Thursday was a good afternoon.

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Home – Buxton Park – 22 July.

As I mentioned last week this team did not beat us in the first half of the season, we never had a look in! So far they are the only team who have inflicted a loss on us. We needed to play at our best as they are also top of the league. The first two games ended one each and the points score was Parwich 35, Buxton 36, couldn’t be closer.

Our illustrious leader and Captain Dawn A, as always more than ably assisted by Dot H, started to pull us ahead and finished up winners by 21 – 15. You do not need me to tell you how the immensely talented Edith and the remorseless Rick did in the final game romping home winners by 21 – 6. Not only did we avenge our defeat of earlier in the season, but won by a handsome 77 – 57. This will not affect the league positions, but will hopefully keep us there or there abouts. We will definitely have to start losing.

  • Next match – Away – Whitworth Park – 29 July – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Blank week this week.

Instead we played our Open Doubles competition. What a great afternoon, not only was the weather good, but the bowls was even better. After some close matches Dennis E and Dawn A came out on top. A good day was had by all. A pity that more people did not see it.

  • Next match – Away – Matlock Bath – 31 July.

We entertained Ashbourne Park last Sunday and again we had a most enjoyable afternoon. The tea was fabulous and the bowls was even better. You really missed a treat on all counts.

Bowlers Strut their Stuff

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Away – Chatsworth – 15 July.

Well another boring win this week. Fortunately the three teams ahead of us are also doing well otherwise we would be right up there. We did win three out of the four games and had good score in the game we lost. Dawn and Dot were convincing winners 21 – 12, with Tony A and Val K virtually matching them by winning 21 – 13. Even without the ever present Rick, Edith joined with Clare E won 21 – 18. The final score was Chatsworth 64, Parwich 79. Only 5 points from the maximum, a really good solid performance by all. Next week we entertain the team who didn’t beat us when we met at the start of the season, they thrashed us. We will certainly try our best next Tuesday to reverse the result. Oh, and they are also top of the league.

  • Next match – Home – Buxton Park – 22 July – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Whitworth Park – 17 July.

No royal patronage this week, She doesn’t know what she’s missing, as indeed the vast proportion of Parwich residents don’t. Anyway, we played the top of the league this week and considering our player resources we more than held our own. We got a good win in one of the doubles games, but sadly came unstuck in the other two and trailed 59 – 46 at the start of the singles. Although we shared the games three each, the deficit from the doubles was too large for us to make up and we finished up losing 117 – 123. Not bad for a hick ‘out in the sticks’ Club like Parwich. Fortunately this loss may well drop us a place or two from the giddy heights of second in the league!

  • Next match – Away – Blank week- 24 July

Another friendly this Sunday, come down to Parsons Croft around 2.00pm and see some of the best bowlers in the Matlock League strut their stuff. You will be amazed how good they are.
