Parwich First Responders need somebody to do their weekly rota from 1st September. In the past the role has been performed by somebody doing their Duke Of Edinburgh Award and requires a weekly commitment of 30 to 60 minutes. Our current Responders email their availability to the Rota Co-ordinator who needs to issue the rota for the following week every Sunday evening. We need someone who is reliable and organised.

If you are interested, or know of someone who needs to undertake volunteering work, please ring Sue H on 334 for more information.

We will be doing a BBQ on the village green on Tuesday at the same time as the PP5.

Hope to see as many children in the races as possible and grown ups too!

Winning Week


Having found the bike helmet and filled our faces with fish and chips it was back to the grind of home league matches. It didn’t work out too badly either and with only five weeks left for us to try and save our place in the top division of the Thursday Friendly League we needed to be at our best (well sort of).

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Home – Youlgrave – 28 July – 6.30pm.

In the away fixture earlier in the season we lost by quite a margin and following last week’s match we had dropped down to sixth place in the league even though we had won. A good score was needed to get us back and what a score we got. After Dawn’s television commitments she turned on the style with Dot (having also learnt to walk on water) and the dynamic duo won 21 – 0, what a score. Not to be outdone Edith and Sue A also turned in a fabulous score winning 21 – 4. Harry B and Tony A had a poor win!! Only winning by 21 – 7 another great score. Dennis and Clara E narrowly lost 21 – 16. The overall result worked out in the end Parwich 79, Youlgrave 32. We were 5 points behind our opponents, but this result will put us some way ahead of them and may even put us back up a further place or two.

  • Next match- Away – Bakewell – 4 August – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Whitworth Park – 30 July – 1.45pm.

As you know we are propping up the division and Whitworth Park are quite a way ahead of us in the league and although we did not win any of the three doubles we were in touching distance of them at only 63 to 44 down. Could our singles players do the business for us? Well out of the six singles we won five and the one we lost we only lost by 2 points. You see not only does herself (Dawn) sort out matters in the Tuesday League she can also get the job done on Thursdays as well, winning 15 – 4. Adding up the scores we finished 88 – 58, giving us a really good win by 132 – 121. Next week we play at the Golf Club and struggle there; keep your fingers for us.

  • Next match – Away – Matlock Golf Club – 6 August – 1.45pm.

Because of the inclement weather the friendly against Ashbourne Park was postponed. Not sure if we will have enough time to re-arrange the game.
