All Weather Bowling

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

We are having mixed fortunes on the green of late, a bit like the curates egg really (if we had a curate or indeed an egg). One good win away from home, one not so good loss, also away from home.

Matlock Tuesday League.
AWAY -26 April – 6.30pm – Whitworth Park.

Although I wasn’t there I am reliably informed that not even brass monkeys would have dared to show their faces, or any other part of their anatomy for that matter. Hail stones as big footballs could not put our redoubtable team off. By the time a wood had gone a couple of yards it had grown to a size big enough to make a snow man. Although we only won one of the 4 games the score wasn’t that bad with Whitworth coming out on top 78 – 62.

  • Next match – Home – Bradwell – 3 May – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday League.
Away – Bradwell – 28 April.

Again the weather gods were against us (We know when to have a week’s holiday!). Evidently it was 4 degrees and throwing it down with rain. However, everybody kept going and though frost bite was a potential problem we overcame. We lost the 3 doubles games by 55 – 47 with Ian J and Liz H playing a great game to win 21 – 13.

The singles were shared 3 apiece with Tony A and Dawn A both winning 15 – 3. The final singles score of Parwich 77 to Bradwell’s 74 gave us an overall win 124 – 119. What a team!

  • Next match – Wirksworth – 5 May – 1.45pm.

Another ‘welcome all’ get together tomorrow (Sunday) 2.00pm. You can’t afford to miss the cakes again! Can’t believe we will already be in May.

Oil Club Update

Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Oil continues to shrug off oversupply fears after US Federal Reserve’s decision to hold interest rates, lifting prices above $48. Crude prices now almost 70pc higher than the 12-year lows of around $27 a barrel seen in late January. With the continued cold snap, please do check your tank levels.

The rate and offer details for our clubs group orders for this weekend are as follows:

  • Rate: £0.2859 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Planting for bees?

Despite the cool weather the bumblebees seem to be quite active. In my garden they are going for the lungworts (pulmonaria) and the perennial wallflowers (erysimum) rather than the spring bulbs. What are they making a bee line for in your garden?

Artistic Opportunity

Be inspired by Derbyshire Open Art Competition

Artists and aspiring artists are being urged to enter the annual Open Art Competition.


DCC has been running the competition successfully for 34 years and it’s open to amateur and professional artists, including children. The resulting exhibition is supported by Tarmac and the Friends of Buxton Museum and Art Gallery.

Entries for the competition must capture an essence of what Derbyshire means to the artist. The subject could be a Derbyshire landscape, a view of the artist’s street or home town, local people, still life or representations of local stories. Entrants can use most mediums, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, drawing, print, collage, manipulated digital imagery or three-dimensional work. The closing date for the competition is Saturday 11 June.

DCC’s Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Dave Allen said:

“Our exhibition has been attracting a wide and appreciative audience for over 30 years and I expect the same this summer.”I am delighted that we buy the winning entry to add to our art collection at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery which makes it available to view beyond the dates of the exhibition.”

Prizes totalling £2,250 – including a £750 first prize – are on offer along with the opportunity to display work at our Museum and Art Gallery in Buxton.

Prizes will be announced at the preview evening on Friday 24 June.

Artists can submit up to two works which must be handed in between 10am and 4.30pm on Friday, 10 June or Saturday, 11 June, to the Museum and Art Gallery on Terrace Road in Buxton.

An independent panel of judges will select the winners of nine prizes, including one for sculpture and also one for work by artists aged 21 or under. Visitors to Buxton Museum will have the chance to vote for their favourite while the exhibition is on − the Visitors’ Choice will be announced on Tuesday, 9 August.

You can find the rules and entry form online, at any Derbyshire County Council library or at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery. For more information call 01629 533540 or email buxton.museum@derbyshire.gov.uk.

The judges’ selection including the winning pieces will go on display at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from Saturday 25 June until Friday 2 September.

It is with mixed feelings that we post these great swallow photos, as we are losing John and Marion to Winster. However we wish them all the best, and hope that this is not the end of his fantastic contributions to the Blog, though they will inevitablely become fewer. Also we hope to further mark John’s photographic involvement with parwich.org soon.

Free caddy liners being delivered across Derbyshire Dales

Derbyshire Dales District Council’s annual delivery of free food caddy liners has started to all 34,000 homes in the district.

Undertaken by a dedicated team – not bin emptying crews – the deliveries will take around three weeks to complete.

Dales residents are being advised that if they haven’t received their year’s supply of caddy liners by the end of May they should email waste@derbyshiredales.gov.uk or contact the District Council’s Waste Helpline on 01629 761122 before 30 June.

Caddy liners will not be delivered if requests are made after this date but will be available to buy from the Town Hall in Matlock, from the council’s leisure centres in Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth and from Ashbourne Tourist Information Centre, Bakewell Pet Supplies and Eyam Village Post Office.

Properties that use black sacks for household waste collections will also receive a free roll of sacks during April and May. The same applies to residents who have subscribed to the council’s compostable sacks scheme for garden waste – they will receive a roll of compostable sacks.

Anyone who currently uses black sacks for household waste and hasn’t yet subscribed to the compostable sacks scheme for garden waste can complete the online form at  http://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/waste or call the Helpline.

If black sacks/compostable sacks have not been delivered by the end of May, residents should contact the District Council before 30 June as sacks will not be delivered after that date.

The Cakes were Delicious

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

So from the giddy heights of TV stardom it was back to the mundane grind of everyday bowls life. We also visited a new venue this week, but with little success. Perhaps we will be able to seek our revenge when we play on our green.

Matlock Tuesday League.
AWAY -19 April – 6.00pm – Cote Heath, Buxton.

I did not realise that Buxton had so many crown green bowls clubs. There are four to my knowledge. This was the first time for most of us to play at Cote Heath. When our Club started years ago we played in the top division of the league and Cote Heath has remained there all these years. Last year they got relegated down to our division, but seeing their results so far I don’t think they will be down for long. The evening although cold was beautiful. Shame our bowls did not match it. At least all four of our pairs managed to get to double figures and Dawn A and John B won our only game 21 – 18. Even our redoubtable pairing of Edith and Rick could only manage to get to 14. The first match of the season Cote Heath scored a maximum 84, but we showed ‘em and restricted them to a measly 81! Final result was 81 – 57 to our opponents.

  • Next match – Away – Whitworth Park – 26 April – 6.15pm.

Matlock Thursday League.
HOME – Chatsworth – 21 April.

There was a bit of a rarity in this match with Pat B and Ian J winning a doubles games and restricting their opponents to less than ten. They won 21 – 5 with Ian on fire. They were very ably supported by Sue A and Dennis E only losing by 21 – 17 and Audrey and Harry B also just losing by 21 – 16. This gave us an aggregate score of 54 – 47 after the doubles games. We carried on doing well in the singles winning 4 out of the 6 games with Edith R and Tony A being our best winners. The final score in the singles was Parwich 80, Chatsworth 67, giving us a grand win by 134 points to 114.

  • Next match – AWAY – Bradwell – 28 April – 1.45pm.

It was good to see a good number of people on the green for our ‘welcome social’ last Saturday. Although I wasn’t there I’m reliably informed the cakes were delicious – see what you missed!

John B.

Police Commissioner Elections

The candidates for the May 5th Derbyshire Police & Crime Commioners elections have now been announced:

Richard Bright: Conservative

Police & Crime Commissioners Candidates

Hardyal Singh Dhindsa: Labour

Tom Snowdon: Liberal Democrats

Stuart David Yeowart: UKIP
no photo or statement submitted to the ‘Choose My PCC’ website

Click on the images above to see their statements or click here to access all their statements as a PDF.

(Personal comment: The turnout for the previous election was very low, though I am not surprised as, like the Liberal Democrat candidate, I am not convinced that an election is the best way to fill the post. Also, it is hard to draw out any local references other than the local polling station being the Memorial Hall and that the Conservative candidate lives relatively locally in the Carsington ward.
