Responses are still coming in, but as of midnight the 29th of December some 78% of respondents supported the need for a public meeting to discuss options for the future of the Parish Council owned land off Pump Hill, making up part of The Square. You can still add your response:

DDDC Snow Updaate

Snow update – Derbyshire Dales District Council

Continuing poor weather conditions mean that Derbyshire Dales District Council’s scheduled stall market today (Monday) in Bakewell is cancelled. However, the usual Monday livestock market at the District Council’s Agricultural Business Centre in Bakewell goes ahead as planned.

The District Council’s four leisure centres in Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth beat the weather conditions by opening as scheduled across the weekend, but the Boxing Day snowfall forced the suspension of Saturday’s scheduled waste and recycling collections in and around Ashbourne, Darley Dale and Baslow.

Bin teams were out first thing today (Monday) playing catch-up in those areas – though some side roads and streets may still be inaccessible.

The big message to Derbyshire Dales residents for this week is please leave out/put out your waste and recycling for collection – and the bin teams will get to you as soon possible. Residents should work to this week’s scheduled collection timetable, which can be found online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/waste via a postcode search.

Waste can be taken to household recycling centres at Ashbourne, Darley Dale and Waterswallows, Buxton.

* Derbyshire County Council are responsible for gritting roads – and snow updates and gritting information can be found on the homepage of their website at http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk

Note: Our bins (blue and green bins and food caddies) are, weather permitting, due for emptying on Wednesday as normal.

Fireguard wanted until Monday

SOS  Please could someone lend us a small fire guard from today (Saturday) until Monday lunchtime? Phone no 390 132.
Many thanks,
Sue C, Rosemary Cottage

UPDATE: Thanks for all the helpful offers to lend us a fire guard. Our son solved the problem with an imaginative use of a clothes airer! We will know where to call if the need arises in future.

Is road to Ashbourne open?

Does anyone know whether the road from Ashbourne to Parwich is clear? Marlous and Ferdi, our (Dutch) guests from Tom’s Barn, have had to camp at the Travel Lodge in Ashbourne overnight and need advice. They certainly won’t get up the hill to Orchard Farm but will they get to Parwich okay? I don’t think they or their car are used to icy roads…be very grateful if anyone has any up to date info. Thank you!

Parwich Parish Council have spent considerable effort exploring some possible uses of the land on the west side of Pump Hill that makes up part of the Square (click here to see extracts relevant Council minutes). However their proposed sale of this land has prompted local controversy (click here for some of the responses here at parwich.org).

The sale of this piece of community owned land would be an irreversible step. Should there be a public meeting and consultation prior to a decision being made on this issue or should the Parish Council be left to make the decision on our behalf?

Santa Spotting

It’s looking promising for clear(ish) skies on Christmas Eve for a bit of Santa spotting but if not, there’s a very good chance of seeing him going back home at 4.31pm on Christmas Day in the south west.

Also the good folk of the White Peak might catch a glimpse of him today as he pays Parwich British Legion a flying visit between 1 and 2.30pm.

Christmas Forecast

Our Weatherman in the Village says:

Having been touched by Anthony C’s kind comments following the last weather report posted before my weather station started playing games, I thought a Christmas forecast might be in order to try to anticipate the conditions for the big day. So, will it be or won’t it be …….. a white Christmas?

Sadly, the only white likely on Christmas day is frost this year, with snow being pretty unlikely as I write this. Monday and Tuesday look like being mild, windy and damp, but the temperatures look set to drop as we move through Christmas Eve with the possibility of a frosty start on Thursday morning followed by a similar day on Friday.

So it’s a Happy Christmas to one and all from The Weatherman in the Village and here’s to a 2015 punctuated by great weather- my New Year resolution this year will be to fix the weather station!

Mobile Reception

Hi, I remember there was a survey of interest in the Vodaphone Rural Open Sure Signal. Was there enough interest to follow it through, and who is doing so? Is it something the Parish Council is involved in?
How do,we find out more? We are hoping to “go smart” after Christmas, and are wondering which network will be best.
Many thanks, David C

added 9pm same day:Our poll here at parwich.org indicated support for this Vodafone scheme. Although we had passed the deadline, Vodafone indicated they would still consider our participation in this scheme, and a possible location for the equipment was identified. However no local champion was identified at that point. This information was passed to the Parish Council (unfortunately only a short time before their November meeting); so far we have not had any response.
