All Weather Bowling


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])
  • (more…)

For information

There are usually 10 parish council meetings each year, usually on the third Wednesday of each month, with the exception of August and sometimes December.  Councillors have to abide by a code of conduct and complete and sign certain documentation which becomes a public record.
It is expected that all councillors attempt to attend all meetings wherever possible.  The meetings usually start at 7.30 pm and generally last at least 2 hours, sometimes longer when the agenda is particularly long.  Members of the public regularly attend the meetings to contribute, raise issues and listen to proceedings.

The next parish council meeting to discuss this is Wednesday, 18th May 2016 at 7.00 pm in Parwich Memorial Hall.

Mr A Martin
Parwich Parish Council
