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.

Winning Week

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

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.

Cobra Fit

Although outside our area, this is strongly endorsed by a local resident. Apologies Keeley for the delay in posting it, but we were waiting to get a response from all of us on the Team before publishing.

I’ve been going to cobraFit for almost a year now and feel fitter, healthier and in better shape than I’ve ever done. CobraFit is suitable for both men & women and covers a wide range of ages. The eldest person being 71!

If you’re interested why not try a ‘taster’? Contact Alison for more details – quoting the Parwich website.

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Now you have been told about the wonders of playing Crown Green Bowls, but in addition to the great venues that we get to, you can also eat out even though you lose the match!

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Away – Whitworth Park – 21 July – 6.30pm.

This team are vying for promotion to the top division, we on the other hand are attempting to keep our fourth place. We only managed to win one game, but this was the catalyst for the rest of the match. Clara and Dennis E got us off to this good start winning 21 – 11. Great result. Now again you may not believe this but Edith and Rick lost! However, they only lost by 3 points. Pat and John B had a super comeback. At one point they were 16 – 1 down, but came back to again only lose by three points. All of these losses did equate to 72 points. Unfortunately Whitworth scored 74. Now for the good bit, close to Whitworth Park is a very good ‘Chippy’ so having had a game of bowls you can dine out in style with fish and chips!! What a way to drown your sorrows.

  • Next match- Home – Youlgrave – 28 July – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Away – Baslow – 23 July – 1.45pm.

Again this team are second in the league and we, as you wonderful followers of this stuff will know, are bottom, and proud of it. When we play in this league if you turn up you get a game. The rationale is we want to enjoy it. It is the Friendly League after all. Other teams on the other hand only play members who have a reasonable potential of winning, hence we put out 12 players whereas Baslow who have loads of members put out a team of only 10 players. Two people therefore who played in the doubles then played in the singles which may be regarded as an advantage. The chances of us winning this match anyway were small and our attempts unfortunately proved to be the case. A bit of a whinge really, but there you go. We lost 141 – 112, which will still mean we are bottom of the league.

  • Next match – Home – Whitworth Park – 30 July – 1.45pm.

A cracking game ensued last Sunday in the ‘square robin’ (I am assured that no animals were harmed in the playing of this game). It was won by Edith and John H. Well done you two. This Sunday we are entertaining Ashbourne Park at Parsons Croft in a friendly. A good afternoon should happen all being well, although the weather may not be kind to us, but we will be there, will you?

John B.

P.S. – Now you are aware that Dawn and Edith are very good bowls players and can nearly walk on water, but you did not know that they are also pundits for the BBC on the NHS – Vis – The Real Peak Practice.
P.P.S. – The really nice bike helmet is still with us. Unfortunately the empty Stella cans and the half eaten cake are no longer with us.

Variable Broadband Speed

I had been away for a couple of weeks, but when I got home on Sunday evening I noticed my BT broadband has become much more erratic. It is very variable, with download speed varying from 0.1 Mb/s to 7 Mb/s, and surprisingly upload varying too (this week I have recorded speeds between 0.4 and 4 Mb/s).

In part this must relate to the number of households on line as it is slower in the evening. So far, Tuesday afternoon and evening have been the worst, when it was at its slowest with repeated breaks in connection. It was for a while on Tuesday unusable. However, since starting with BT in April, I had previously had a very consistent service.

BT had increased the capacity in the Parwich exchange in April, and attempted to upgrade the service in June, though this failed and left at least one household without any broadband. Is this current blip just effecting BT customers?

I have no wish to go back to my experiences with AOL TalkTalk when I was getting a daily fluctuations in download between 7 Mb/s and 0.001 Mb/s. Was I wrong not to have gone with W3Z?

Peter T

Other Blog Team members report their broadband has slowed recently too. What has been your experience on the Parwich exchange recently? Do we need to contact the BT Press Office to ask for an explaination? Is this effecting only BT customers or are other suppliers involved too? Please let us know about your recent experiences.

Found – helmet and cans!

Having spent a lovely day sorting out a square robin on the bowling
green a what looks like a newish bike helmet was left over there
presumably last night. I assume the person, or persons were sitting in
the lean-to shed on the green. If the person who has lost/left it
contacts me it will be returned together with the empty Stella Artois
cans! Call 455.
