The Much Valued Legion Sign

The Parwich Royal British Legion have had a replica sign made so that they can protect Paul Burlinson’s original inside. Click here to see their original Facebook post on this.

imageYou may have noticed that our Legion sign painted by Paul Burlinson has been missing since February, this was to protect the original from the elements whilst we made a replica to replace it to ensure we could protect such an amazing legacy which Paul left us. The original is now up in pride of place inside the legion, whilst the replica made by Cameron Jewitt and Joe Beech of Acres Signs and Graphics, is now placed outside to greet all our patrons.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us with this project and we hope you enjoy the sign as much as we do and also special thanks and remembrance for Paul who was a key member of the team here at Parwich Legion someone we all miss greatly. Here are some sign preparation photos.

It is particularly appropriate to be able to post this on the eve of the centenary commemorations of the Battlle of the Somme.

This morning I have swept up great piles of glass in the road around the Green, and understand from a lady walking her children to school that there is more up Church Walk. it may be wise to advise Mums to brief kids on bikes and generally fooling around, to be careful.

It is very fine crushed glass which is probably from the rubbish collection yesterday.

I have notified the sanitation dept at Derbyshire Dales and they are contacting the contractor to check the Lorry for signs of leakage.

I hope our own A52s don’t mind that we have brazenly lifted the following from their Facebook page:

The band is playing on home territory this Saturday (2nd July). Parwich Wakes is starting and a week of fun is about to start!

We will be playing on The Green starting around 9pm. For one night only we will be joined by guest drummer Alex Martin. Here’s a moody promo pic so you can see just what a cool bunch we are.


Hope to see you there!
