A range of people have asked the Parish Council to take action in relation to the ongoing dog fouling problem in the village:

image

It has been brought to the attention of Parwich Parish Council that there has been an increase in the number of incidents of dog fouling in the village.

This is of serious concern to members of the parish council and residents but is of particular concern to the staff at the primary school as dogs have been allowed to foul the public areas used by children. The affected areas include: the pedestrian walk way down to the school from Kiln Lane; the former cricket pitch, football pitch areas and the problem is also regularly occurring on other public areas such as village greens, playground areas and the rear of the Memorial Hall.

The health of vulnerable young children is of great concern to the school staff and the parish council members. The practice of allowing dogs to foul these areas must cease.

Hello Possums,

Parwich film presents ‘Carry On In The Great British Bake Off Kitchen’. Starring the delectable Barbara Windsor as Mary Cherry, David Walliams as Paul Bollywood and the Krankies as Mel and Sue. Oooh, titter, titter matron. A hilarious cornucopia of double entendres, a plethora of soggy bottoms, lashings of tongue in cheek tittilations and a good old helping of risque innuendos, stiff peaks and buns in the oven. It is awful, but you’ll like it.

David Cameron was forced to make a humbling apology to Her Majesty The Queen, after he revealed her purring response to the outcome of the Scottish independence referendum. However they are now back on amicable terms and even shared a saucer of Duchy Original organic milk together.

Podey Pizza, a specialist food company in the US, have launched their latest creation: a cannabis infused pizza topping to give the customer a high, and at the same time satiate the associated post joint munchies. A specialist pot noodle is also in the pipeline.

This glorious late summer keeps on giving. It’s hard to believe we’re nearly into October with this sun and warmth. High pressure looks like continuing into the working week, so no obvious significant rain on the horizon.

Welcome to Parwich to Lynn C and family, it is always good to have new contributors:

My son and his girlfriend were climbing at Cheedale (Wye Valley) yesterday and found a young buzzard with a broken wing at the base of the cliff. With only a blue IKEA bag to capture and carry the buzzard, they beat a hasty retreat back to McMurtry & Harding in Ashbourne. We thought people may like to see a close up shot of the bird. We are waiting to hear how the buzzard recovers.

Paul B’s Weedkiller Weekly #89

Hello Possums,

Och aye the ‘noos’ have it; Scotch Bonnets soared high into the chilli autumnal air, as the results of the referendum were announced, confirming a positive rejection of independence. A resigned Alex Salmond conceded defeat. Gordon Broon produced a jaw dropping animated performance, providing a welcome boost for the ‘noos’. With heavy hearts the freedom fighters, sensing defeat adopted a new slogan before drowning their sorrows: ‘Bitter Together’. However the proceedings did not go without any hiccups, especially in ‘The Mary Queen Of Scotch’ bar in Glasgow, where passions were running high, as the ‘ayes’ took the vote. Things got a wee bit hairy in The Trossach’s for a while, where things could have swung either way. Consultants and staff at Edinburgh’s incontinence clinic, which relies solely on English funding for research, celebrated well into the ‘wee’ hours following the ‘noos‘ victory. Ed Milliband vastly underestimated his popularity in Scotland, as cheering supporters bore him shoulder high through the streets of Glasgow, before unceremoniously dumping him in the River Clyde. There were a fair number of abstainers, but the majority of people had a good few bevvies afterwards.

The Results You’ve Been Waiting For

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

I know you are all wondering how the Bowls Club finally did this year, well it was mixed fortunes. The suspense you can cut with a knife, it beats the hell out of the Scottish Referendum results.

In the Matlock Tuesday League two teams are promoted and relegated. Fortunately we were not involved with the latter. I perhaps should point out at this stage that there are only two divisions in the League and we play in the lower of the two so thankfully nobody can get relegated from this league! Anyway there were times this year when little Parwich was riding high at the top of the division. We did not last there very long, but at least we can tell the grand children how we achieved national immortality for a week or two. So having been at the giddy heights of division toppers we inevitably could not sustain the required momentum and we slid down the league. Our final position was fourth. Our best result for donkey’s years. I think that the main reason for our fall down the division was that we did not invest during the transfer window and the players we have are two old!

Our fortunes in the Matlock Thursday League were not so good. We got promoted! Disaster! The Club had been there or thereabouts all season, but with no real danger of promotion, however some of our last results and those of other teams meant that we finished up third. Now of course were this the Tuesday League it would have been ok, (only top two promoted) in this League, however, some dipstick playing with the rules means that the top three go up. What a mess. We will inevitably have to invest heavily in new players during the close season. Having not achieved much joy in getting new players locally, going further afield is a must. I’m not sure if they play Crown Green Bowls in Clacton or the Isle of White, but we will certainly need to strengthen the squad.

I have not heard anything about indoor bowls yet, but I will let you know when I do. Until then have a good Christmas.

John B.

A wedding on the Green

We would like to apologise in advance for any disturbance that we may cause to the village on Saturday night. Our daughter is getting married and the party afterwards may be rather noisy. We will turn off the music at 12.00 and will make every effort to be considerate to everyone in the village.

Thank you for your patience
Paul and Caroline

We are sure everyone will understand. Best wishes from all of us here at parwich.org for what will be a very special event. Have a wonderful day.

Our Scottish Independence Poll

The Poll here at parwich.org on Scottish independence provoked a vigorous response. At 3pm today (Wednesday 17th September), the results were as follows:

Do you have significant Scottish links?

  • 38% Yes
  • 62% No

Would Scottish independence impact on us here (in the Peak District)?

  • 47% Yes
  • 41% No
  • 12% Don’t know

Should Scotland be an independent country?

  • 36% Yes
  • 63% No
  • 1% Don’t know

This indicates a significant minority (38%) of our respondents have strong ties to Scotland, that overall we are split on the impact of Scottish independence on us here in the Peak District (a difference of 6%), but that a majority (63%) of us want the Union to continue. Well tomorrow is the actual referendum day and we will find out on Friday what Scotland votes.

you can still vote in this poll by clicking here.

Local Beef for Sale

 I am due to be sending one of my locally grown White Park bullocks to slaughter soon and i am going to be selling the meat privately.

The White Park Cattle Society says “White Park beef is lean, tasty, well marbled and it cooks beautifully. When properly hung for 3 weeks or so joints will shrink very little on cooking and the natural juices produced will be full of flavour. White Park is best cooked at a slightly lower temperature, over a longer period of time than modern beef breeds. The meat is much sought after and sold by name in top restaurants and butchers.

AA Gill said in the Sunday Times: “The white park, a breed I’ve never eaten before and had always assumed was purely ornamental, was really excellent: softly chewy, with that strong, distinctive, almost corrupt flavour of proper beef … it was the best steak I’ve had this year

Orders are being taken for quality rare breed beef, it will come in a box and will be labelled and bagged, you will get:-
3kg Mince
3kg Stew
1kg braising steak
2 Roasting Joints 1kg each
1 Pot roast
4 Sirloin Steaks
2 Fillet Steaks
2 Rump Steaks

All for a Bargain price of £85, if you were to go to a butchers for the same amount it would be more than double that! you dont get much more local than beef thats been reared right here in Parwich!

So get your orders in asap to avoid dissapointment, you can either ring or text 07813857014 or email chadfen@hotmail.co.uk

Thanks

Ben Chadfield

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.”
