All Hallows Eve, A ghostly Tale

The following Hallows Eve tale has been sent in by our very own P Burlinson – Happy Halloween everyone:

Make haste, make haste, my kindred souls who slither and crawl, scamper and scurry, the moon is rising and we must hurry.

Our kin are stirring from ancient crypts and catacombs, from cobwebbed vaults and musty tombs.

We must heed our dark masters’ call, and wend our way to the Halloween ball.

In a clearing deep in the woods behold a fairies ring, an enchanted place to dance and sing.

We’ll skip and hop to the fiddlers tune, round and round the crackling fire we’ll go with Jack O lanterns all aglow.

The Devils jig, the Demons reel, faster and faster we spin and wheel.

Elves and Goblins, Imps and Sprites, Will O the Wisps and cackling crones spitting curses to chill your bones.

Ring a ring a roses, a pocket full of posies, Atishoo, atishoo we all fall down, ha, ha, ha, ha,

We’ll feast on lobsters and tickled trout, jellied eels that make you drool.

Venison and suckling pigs, the plumpest grapes and juicy figs.

Firearms Amnesty

image

A force-wide firearms surrender aimed at cutting the number of guns in circulation across Derbyshire is being launched today, Monday, October 27.

The operation is the first in 11 years to give people across the whole county the opportunity to hand over any firearms or ammunition they have, to help stop them getting into the wrong hands.These include air weapons, replica or imitation weapons such as BB guns, antique firearms or legally-held guns that license holders no longer want or need.

People who have guns that they want to hand over to Derbyshire police can do so at a number of enquiry offices across the county from today until Friday, November 7, from 7am to midnight.

To help raise awareness of the campaign, the force has produced a video comparing a fake ball bearing gun with a real, police-issue firearm. We want to know if viewers can tell the difference between the real gun and the fake one. To view the video, click the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-opWqbwf2Q&list=UUI6ScnSIKZtvckHcYIYCENA.

If you are on Facebook, you can tell us which you think is the real gun by searching for Derbyshire Constabulary and commenting below the video. If you are on Twitter, search for @DerbysPolice and tweet us your answer, using the hashtag #RealOrFakeGun.

The surrender means people can dispose of these items in a safe place. During the surrender, people handing in guns can remain anonymous. The history of each live weapon will be checked for evidence of its use in crime and if they have not been used in criminality, they will be melted down or recycled. (more…)

Hello Possums,

Weedkiller Weekly’s Drama Productions proudly present:

The Parchers
an everyday tale of Derbyshire village folk.

Farmer’s wife, Betty, is busy baking scones, when her best friend Ann pops in:

”Hello Ann, how are you this fine morning?”
”I’m a lot better now that the water supply has been restored Betty. It’s been a right inconvenience, I can tell you.“
”I’m sure it has Anne, but we should spare a thought for those poor women in Africa, who have to trek for miles in the blazing sun to reach the nearest well.”
”Why on earth don’t they move closer to well then, Betty?”
”Good point Ann.“

Roaming Dogs

This morning my partner was confronted in our garden by two dogs, both without collars or identification, the dogs could be described as being a Rottweiler dog and the other was a white Staffordshire bull terrier.

These two dogs are wandering around the village unattended, so please be minded if your children are out at play.  Does anyone know who these dogs belong too?

Parwich Telephone Directory

With people having options other than BT as a call provider it can sometimes be quite difficult to find the number of the person you want to contact in the village. I have been thinking for sometime about creating a Parwich Telephone Directory, not to be shared on parwich.org but for individuals to have as a hard copy. Does anyone else think this would be useful? I am looking for a winter project…………………………..!!
