PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Can you believe we are more than a third of the way through the season already and we are just about holding our own, although one result this week was a bit of a letdown to say the least.

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Away – Matlock Golf Club – 26 May – 6.30pm.

It really would be good to play a Tuesday night match in a little warm sunshine. This evening was dull and overcast and blowing a cold cold gale at the Golf Club. The bowls though was hot. We shared the games two each with Dawn A and Dot H playing like they knew what they were doing to win 21 – 13. Harry B and Dennis E also came up with a 21 – 19 win and John and Pat B having led for most of the game just came up short in the end 20 – 21. Edith R is still suffering with her bad knee bless her but struggled on with an equally disabled Val K, only just losing. The games were long and close and the match did not finish until 9.30pm. Still a good win to Parwich 77 – 74. Hard match next week as we are playing the league leaders.

  • Next match- Home – Hathersage – 2 June – 6.30pm

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Away – Wirksworth – 28 May – 1.45pm.

For once the sun was shining; however we were not shining on the green. At one point I thought we may well be in for a maximum score against us. We had seven players missing this week with people on holiday or not well so we could only muster 9 instead of the required 12. Not sure whether we would have done any better had we had a full team. Anyway we were well and truly beaten in the doubles losing 63 – 26. We did rally a bit in the singles games although we only managed to win two games out of the six. However Dawn A and Rick M won handsomely to lead us to 74 – 70 for Parwich. As you will see though we lost 133 – 100, at least we got to 100. It’s the matches against the league leaders next week because we are playing the leaders in this league as well. Hope we get to more than 100 next week.

  • Next match – Home – Hope Works – 4 June – 1.45pm.

A good time was had by all last Sunday and this Sunday should be equally good. We are going to Ashbourne Park for a friendly.

John B.

Security Marking at Carsington

Cyclists and Land Rover owners are being encouraged to get their security into gear at an upcoming crime prevention and property marking drive.

Officers from the Wirksworth and Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team are joining up to host a security marking initiative at Carsington Water on Sunday, May 31.

Safer Neighbourhood officers will be on hand between 9am and 3pm to security mark vehicles and bikes for free with SmartWater kits.

SmartWater is a forensic based security marking fluid that can be used on property from bikes, electrical items and jewellery to help deter criminals. Marking items with security kits such as SmartWater can improve the chances of police returning any items if they are stolen and recovered.

The policing team will also be on hand to chat to people about the steps that they can take to better protect their valuables from criminals.

To speak to your local Safer Neighbourhood team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.

Rural Crime Survey

The National Rural Crime Network have commissioned the biggest ever survey to uncover the true impact of rural crime.
 The survey, which runs for five weeks, offers the chance for people living or working in rural areas of Derbyshire to give their views in a national survey about crime and policing in the countryside, and it has been welcomed and promoted by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Alan Charles.

With wildlife crime high on the Commissioner’s agenda, he’s encouraging people to fill in the survey which was launched on Wednesday, May 20.

The survey is the largest ever to delve into crime and anti-social behaviour in rural areas as well as on farms.

It will be open until Wednesday, June 24.

A Winning Week

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

We were playing two really good teams this week, both ahead of us in the leagues, but we came through with flying colours.

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Home – Bakewell – 19 May – 6.30pm.

Bakewell were a few points ahead of us in the league, they were fourth and we were fifth. It did not auger well when Dot H and Val K lost the first game. Pat B and Sue A played superbly to beat their best pair 21 – 17, what a score. This was followed by an equally good win by Clara E and Harry B and by the same margin, 21 – 17. This left Rick M and Tony A to make up the points we were still down and to cap it all Rick had left his woods at home. Edith R lent Rick her woods and as you know our Edith has laser guided bowls. All Rick had to do was to drop them on the green and they roll down next to the jack. (I wish I could train my woods to do the same. It could be something to do with skill, but not a lot!!) They worked their magic a treat Rick and Tony winning 21 – 4. This gave us an overall score of Parwich 71, Bakewell 59. These extra points should take us above them in the league. Tricky game next week though.

  • Next match- Away – Matlock Golf Club – 26 May – 6.30pm

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Howe – Matlock Golf Club – 21 May – 1.45pm.

Last week we were struggling greatly to get a full team, this week three people sat on the sidelines; however the result for those who played was very satisfying. Matlock are well ahead of us in the league in third place so we needed to play well, and well we did play. Our doubles pairs carried on the good work from last week with Audrey and Harry B the pick of the bunch winning 21 – 9. The score after the three doubles was Parwich 59, Golf Club 47.
In the singles we won 4 out of the six games. The pick of the wins were Dawn A and John B winning 15 – 6 and 15 – 5 respectively. This gave us a score of 77 – 60 and an overall win 136 – 107. This will not let us overtake Matlock, but we will obviously be that much closer.

  • Next match – Away – Wirksworth B – 28 May – 1.45pm.

This Sunday there has been a change of plan and we are playing the open singles. 2.00pm start come and watch and have a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Guarantee it will be good.

John B.

As can be seen from Ian Sneap’s comment on a previous post here, W3Z are extending their wireless broadband service to Parwich village. They are installing an additional relay on a private house in Creamery Lane which means over 85% of Parwich will be able to utilise their service. Click here to visit the W3Z website.

(With BT having resolved the capacity issues in the Parwich exchange, their plans to provide later this year a super fast fibre optic connection, and with the W3Z super fast wireless option open to more in the next week, hopefully things can only get better.)

Lost two cat collars

But unfortunately neither is the one found last Tuesday:

Lost, Royal blue velvet cat collar with large bell and mauve ancol name tube attached. My kitten cats have started to explore but don’t go too far away from the Square. One lost his green velvet collar 2 weeks ago and the other his blue one today! (I don’t think he was too thrilled with the large bell I attached to it this morning, following his antics of presenting me with a baby pheasant yesterday, which is now under Mike Heart’s heat lamp!!)

If anyone comes across either of the collars, please could you give me a call on 390554?

Thanks
Lesley

Parwich Parish Council 2015

DDDC have issued a notice of election for Parwich Parish Council. The Parish Council is made up of 7 councillors. When the last election was called 2 people put themselves forward for nomination and were duly appointed as parish councillors on 7 May 2015. These 2 are Phillip Kirkham and Mick Edge (jnr).

Parwich Parish Council needs 3 members to be quorate, with only 2 members appointed it is not in a position to be able to function. The notice issued by DDDC gives the opportunity for people to put themselves forward for nomination. We need at least one person for the Parish Council to function and ideally 5 people to have a full council.

If more than 5 people put themselves forward for nomination there will be an election in the village on 18 June. If 5 or less people put themselves forward for nomination they will be appointed unopposed.

Nominations have to be hand delivered to the Town Hall in Matlock by

4pm on Thursday 21 May 2015

Nomination forms can be picked up from the Town Hall Matlock or requested by ringing 01629 761335 or downloaded at http://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/images/documents/N/Notices_of_Election_2015/parish_nomination_forms.pdf

Phil and Mick would really appreciate as many nominations as possible to ensure that the village has a viable parish council.
