Jill L has asked use to put out a request for newspaper again:

I am expecting puppies (at least the dog is!!) in June and as you will remember from the last time I need newspapers. Lots of people seem to read on line now, but if you still get an actual paper they would be very useful. I can collect, just call 353, or they can be left at my door. Should I have too many, I will be sure to recycle them.

Thank you
Jill, tel. 353

Years of dedication have come to fruition to produce an exquisitively painted corner of Derbyshire….walled water gardens edged with cool white allium….hot reds and vibrant oranges ignite the kitchen garden, an old fashioned potager bursting with fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, a woodland walk with an autumnal palette of burnt sienna and ochre, painterley coloured double borders (more…)

A Message from the Parish Council about Dog Fouling.

The Parish Council shares the concerns raised by a number of residents about dog fouling in the village. Bins and signs are provided to encourage owners to clear up after their dog.You may also wonder what further measures can be taken when problems persist. The following advice originates from Helen Spencer, Parks and Street Scenes Assistant at Derbyshire Dales District Council.

“If a witness comes forward to report that they have seen a dog fouling and their owner failing to clean up then we can issue a fine on the basis that the witness is willing to stand up in court if it gets that far. Evidence such as photos, time, weather, location, description owner or the dog would also help.
We can arrange for an enforcement officer to visit the area but we would need rough estimate of times that the dog fouling occurs. There also may be a charge for the officers time.”

Please note that if you wish to come forward as a witness you will need to report this to Derbyshire Dales yourself as the Parish Council cannot do this on your behalf.

If you believe you have made regular enough observations to justify the cost of requesting an enforcement officer please email clerk@parwichparishcouncil.org.uk with details and it can be considered at the next available meeting.

Humps, Hollows and Elephants

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Playing on the two most difficult greens in the Leagues we had one fabulous win and a near miss and our ‘star’ played her second game even better than the first. If you do not believe these extremely accurate and unbiased reports then you are living in the wrong Village!

Matlock Tuesday League.
Away -24 May – 6.30pm – Matlock Bath.

The green at Matlock is very small and you have to know where the humps and hollows are. This as you may realise dear reader is not always possible for the ‘away team’. The games were shared 2 each, but again as you know it’s ‘points that win prizes’ John B and Rick M lead the way for us with a 21 – 13 win. Pat B and Harry B also had a good win 21 – 18. Our remaining pairs, although putting up a really good show, lost. The final result was a close loss Matlock 73, Parwich 66. Our position in the League was just below half way and this result I fear will not improve our position. Tough game again next week, keep your fingers crossed.

  • Next match – Home – Matlock Golf Club – 31 May – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday League
Away – Youlgrave – 26 May – 1.45pm.

Now you know about the elephant buried under Youlgrave’s green and not only do you have to be on top of your game, but you also need David Attenborough to get you over the wild life. However when you have a Lynn and an Edith you must stand a bit of a chance. Playing with Pat B, Lynn C, although losing, got 13 extremely valuable points. Dennis and Clara E again, although losing got 19 great points. Our third couple Audrey B and Ian J were being put to the sward. At one point they were 13 nil down, but fought back to a narrow loss 21 – 15. What a pair. At the end of the doubles though we were 16 points down. However, you can’t keep our singles players down even on the trickiest green in the League. Dot H was inspired winning 15 – 6 and John B and Edith winning to 8 and 9 respectively. Out of the 90 points available we got 88! I am in awe of the members! The final score was Parwich 135, Youlgrave 123. We had slipped to fourth in the League so this winning score should at least keep us there.

  • Next match – Home – Bradwell – 2 June – 1.45pm.

This bank holiday Sunday we are playing our Open Singles competition. Start Time 2.00pm. Why not come along and see what you are missing. A piece of cake and a cup of tea may well be in the offing.

A star is born

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Our opponents were very good teams this week and we managed one win and a very close second in the other match. Can you believe we are already a third if the way through the season.

Matlock Tuesday League.
Home -17 May – 6.30pm – Wirksworth.

Wirksworth were third in the League and are as you would expect a very keen team. Of the four games, we won three with Tony A and John B winning 21 – 2. Edith and Rick also had a great win 21 – 7. Dennis and Clara E battled away and finally came home winners 21 – 15. Although Sue A and Dot H lost it did not have too much effect on the score and Parwich won 70 – 45. Our mid table position may well improve this week. Tricky match next week at Matlock Bath on their 50 pence piece green.

  • Next match – Away – Matlock Bath – 24 May – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday League
Home – Hathersage – 19 May – 1.45pm.

As I mentioned last week Hathersage were top of the league and we needed to be on top of our game to have any chance. A mention has also to be made of our latest player. Because ‘a star is born’. Can you believe Lynn C having played hardly any bowls at all played like a veteran? Partnered with Edith R, although they lost 21 – 13 they were playing against Hathersages best pair, what a result. Watch out everybody, Lynn C has arrived. She will be jumping out of hot air balloon baskets next. Our remaining pairs did not win, but Rick M and Clara E only just lost 21 – 18. After the doubles we were 21 points behind. The singles players put up a great come back and although only three were wins the other players came close. The final outcome was Parwich 123 Hathersage 126. Not bad for possibly the smallest Club in the League. Next week the elephants are on parade again, we are away to Youlgrave!!

  • Next match – Away – Youlgrave – 26 May – 1.45pm.

The holiday season is upon us and we are critically short of players. We are 5 members short and bearing in mind we only have 14 registered players and we need 12 players for the Thursday League you do not have to be a mathematical genius to work out we are short. Anybody care to join Lynn C next week??
