Here is the summary of the poll results that we sent to Derbyshire County Council:

The community website parwich.org, as well as providing readers with a link to Derbyshire County Council’s online consultation on the idea of 20mph speed limits in residential areas, offered readers the opportunity to to participate in a poll on our own site, see

https://parwich.org/2015/09/23/20mph-speed-limits-2/
https://parwich.org/2015/09/27/support-for-20mph-speed-limits/

The following figures were recorded at 12am Wednesday 30th September 2015:

In response to the general idea of 20mph speed limits in residential areas, 54 people participated with 78% in favour of the idea of 20mph speed limits.

There was also clear support for the idea of specific 20mph limits in our local villages:

  • Alsop en le Dale 77.5% (31 out of 40)
  • Ballidon 72% (23 out of 32)
  • Parwich 77% (33 out of 43)
  • Pikehall 70% (23 out of 33)

These recent poll results are consistent with issues raised by our readers over a number of years concerned about traffic and road safety in Parwich and Alsop en le Dale villages.

Note: It is still possible for people to vote on the online polls, but, as the County Council’s consultation closes today, any votes after midday today will not be included in their analysis.

These are the results so far (recorded at 4pm Sunday 27th Sept).

Lunar Eclipse Tonight

It is another of those events with a funny name tonight, there will be a ‘Blood Moon’ and a ‘Super Moon’.

A ‘Blood Moon‘ is a total lunar eclipse, that is when the Earth blocks the sun’s light from the moon. This results in a reduction in light reaching the moon, making it go dim, but also the light that does reach the moon is filtered by the Earth’s atmosphere making it look red. The BBC website (click here for more information) says:
image

The eclipse will start at 01:11 BST, when the Moon enters the lightest part of the Earth’s shadow, known as the penumbra, and adopts a yellowish colour. At 03:11 BST, the Moon completely enters the umbra – the inner dark corpus of our planet’s shadow.

The point of greatest eclipse occurs at 03:47 BST, when the Moon is closest to the centre of the umbra. The sky show is over by 05:22 in the morning on Monday.

This particular lunar eclipse, the second this year, also coincides with a full moon, when the Moon’s orbit brings it closest to the Earth, making it larger in the sky, i.e. a ‘Super Moon‘.

Derbyshire County Council’s consultation on the idea of 20mph speed limits in some (as yet unspecified) residential areas in the County ends next Wednesday (30th September). Click here if you want to find out more about the consultation or participate on line.

The Council plan to enter into further consultation with any neighbourhoods if they consider introducing specific schemes. However this is something that has been raised a number of times in the past both with Parwich Parish Council and here at Parwich.org, so what do you think?

We encourage you to respond directly to DCC’s consultation, but we will also forward any comments added to this post and responses to the polls below to the Council next Wednesday.

Do you think 20mph speed limits are a good idea in some residential areas?

Do you think a 20mph speed limit would be a good idea in our local villages?

Calling budding photographers

As you may have noticed we occasionally change the top photo banner on Parwich.org. We like them to represent the current seasons – and this is where you can help. We are looking for any keen photographers to send us some images of Parwich (or surrounding area). The image size for the banner is 786 x 190 pix (so your image needs to be long and thin  but don’t worry we can resize it to the correct size). All of the best ones will then be used as the new banner image. Send your photos or any questions to parwich@hotmail.co.uk

Including our Diary in the Church magazine is important as it helps you reach some of those who are not on-line.

Damage to Barn Cottage Roof

Sometime today whilst Gill was out a van (I am assuming) turned down Creamery Lane from Kiln Lane and got a little stuck, as is usual. This time however the driver hit the bottom of our roof smashing several and displacing a dozen tiles before just leaving without letting us know who they were. I don’t suppose anyone saw or heard anything at all so that I might be able to get in touch with them?

Many thanks,
Matt H

UPDATE: – due to a couple of additional donations, the amount has increased to £402.50.

The Legion would like to say many, many thanks to everyone who was involved with, and who supported, yesterday’s harvest festival.

Lots of people generously gave up their time, donated produce and spent their money!!! As a result we managed to raise £390.50 for the Welfare Fund!
