New Bowls Season starting soon

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLING CLUB
2016 SEASON

So the time has come the walrus said to think of other things, and you can’t think of a much better thing than Crown Green Bowls. You can now forget all about what Rob is going to do in the Archers and get down to Parsons Croft.

As from this weekend starting Saturday 2 April you can enjoy the delights of the best game there is after tidily winks.

The first match of the season is at home against Baslow on Thursday 7 April. Start time 1.45 pm. As you may recall we were playing in the higher echelons of the Thursday League last year, but difficult a task as it was we managed to get ourselves relegated back to the lower division.

The first Tuesday match is also at home on 12 April. Start time I think is 6.00pm and our opponents are Bakewell.

One final note is that we have a couple of new members joining us this year which is great. Many more would be most welcome. See you at Parsons Croft.

John B.

Goldstraw Family at Crown Cottage

Christine B (née Goldstraw) has put several posts on our Facebook page asking if people remember her late grandparents (see https://www.facebook.com/parwich/ – Visitor are posts lower down on the left hand side of the page).

Can anyone in the village remember my late grandparents? Left with hat on Mr Clifford Goldstraw, next to him Harriet Goldstraw. They lived at Crown House, Parwich.

Crown House, formerly the Crown Inn and the original home of the Parwich Oddfellows, is now called Crown Cottage.
