PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Talk about ‘after the Lord Mayors show’, great one game awful in the other. Still only one match left in one league and two in the other.

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Away – Chatsworth – 26 August.

So Chatsworth are second in the division and we are fifth. After this match we will be very lucky if our position stays the same. We did not win one game! Only Tony A and John B got close losing 21 – 20. They did actually purposely lose as one of our opponents empties the refuse bins. We thought that if we won then who knows what could have happened to the villages refuse situation! Another incredible happening also occurred in the match which was Rick and Edith losing. I know it is difficult to believe, but it did happen. The final result was Chatsworth 84, Parwich 51. It is probably just as well that we only have one match left in this League.

  • Last match – Home – Ashwood Park – 2 September – 6.00pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Baslow – 28 August.

At present we are third in this league and today’s result will hopefully keep us there. We more than held our own in the doubles finishing just 9 points down. In the singles we missed getting a maximum score by one point, 89 out of a possible 90. The final result was Parwich 135, Baslow 105.

Only two matches left and if we carry on like this we may get promoted. Little Parwich in the top division that would be quite a result considering our lack of players.

  • Next match – Away – Whitworth Park.  – 4 September – 1.45pm.

A Persistant Pigeon

image

This racing pigeon appeared during the rain yesterday morning. In the afternoon I found it in my kitchen trying to open a bag of bird seed. It would only go outside when I took the bird seed out. It is getting on well with my cat, but is reluctant to move out of the way so I can use the car. As the weather is beginning to deteriorate again this evening, it wants to come back into the house.

Katy at Village Games says “the teacher says it is very much free style and will be adapted to the participants which turn up however saying that is aimed more at the parents and children (mummies and daughters dancing together etc) rather than an experienced dancer, however that’s not to say we could not introduce a further session, should there be the interest in the village.”

Hello Possums,

Yesterday’s car boot sale at the Sycamore proved a great success, as bargain hunters converged from far and wide in search of that ever elusive overlooked treasure, but it was our very own Kathy who camped out over night in the pub car park that triumphed after some determined haggling securing a Dyson vacuum cleaner at the knock down price of ten pounds. “I’m a sucker for a good bargain” said Kathy, who also bought two cartons of long life grapefruit juice for 50p. Her husband, Rodger, snapped up a pull along toy horse with provenance linking it to Queen Victoria’s childhood, and a first edition of ‘The Watering Holes of old Derbyshire‘ and a battery charger. Parwich’s own Monty Don, Peter T, did a roaring trade with his surplus plants raising enough money for some new sandals. Of course there were the odd ‘Del Boys’ flogging dodgy gear, including a suspicious looking Irish chap selling left handed tea cups and pirated Brendan Shine CDs.

The biggest anti climax in the history of rock and roll: Elvis Presley’s ex-fiancée has finally broken her silence, after 37 years, to reveal the King’s last words, “I’m going to the bathroom to read”. This stunning revelation has ended years of speculation over this closely guarded Show Business secret.

A pair of café owners in Bristol have splashed out on a replica Time Lord’s Tardis, costing £1,800, and have converted it into ‘The Who Loo’, which now graces the waiting room café at Warneley on the old Bristol & Bath Railway. After a patron has flushed the loo, a loud robotic Dalek voice booms out ‘Fumigate, Fumigate’.

Five Years in the Growing

I feel this is almost a birth announcement, I bought the bulb to this flower Crinum Powellii five years ago, it has never flowered until this year, thought I would share with all in case it is five years before it flowers again.

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

The unseasonably cool weather continues with the average max and min temperatures significantly lower than last week (and they were low). Although the temperatures are cooler than normal, it can’t be said that conditions are particularly unpleasant. That is until tomorrow – which, in true British Bank Holiday tradition, looks like being a wash out. The rest of the week in prospect looks like being a little better with predominantly dry conditions interspersed with breezy showers.
