Onward and Upward

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Again we had two really good wins this week even though we didn’t manage to get a camel under the green for Youlgraves visit. Good turn out as well in the Square Robin club competition with Tony A and Dawn A taking the honours. If you don’t know what a square robin looks like you will have to wait until next year.

Matlock Tuesday League.
Home –Youlgrave – 26 July – 6.30pm.

Having been comprehensively beaten at Youlgrave earlier in the season, and following on from last weeks dismal result we had to try and get back a little confidence. Thankfully we did. Rick and Edith showing the way winning 21 – 10. Dawn A and Dot H also doing a grand job to win 21 – 13. The husband and wife pair Tony and Sue A showed that marital harmony works well on the bowls green winning 21 – 14. We won’t mention Harry B and John B losing superbly well 21 – 11. What a Pair! You will have worked out that we won 74 – 58. At least this result made up a little for the loss at Youlgrave. We had slipped to seventh in the league so this win should stop us from dropping any lower.

  • Next match – Away – Wirksworth – 2 August – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday League
Home – Matlock Park – 28 July – 1.45pm.

We keep doing it, winning that is and the doubles pairs seem to be getting the hang of it as well, two good wins and a close loss. John H and Clara E winning 21 – 10 and Ian J and Liz H coming home 21 – 11. After the doubles we were in the lead 58 – 42. Can’t be bad.

Having played a blinder on Tuesday Tony and Sue A did it again today each winning 15 – 6. Dawn A and Edith R also won comprehensively, but the best result was Rick M winning 15 – 0. This gave us a singles score of 82 – 39. The overall score was Parwich 140, Matlock Park 81. This I am sure will cement our second place in the league. Onward and upward as they say.

  • Next match – Away – Hathersage – 4 August – 1.45 pm

Richard Town posted the following on our Facebook page:

I was walking through your delightful village on Sunday 24th July en route to Tissington and mislaid my Panasonic Lumix camera. The last photograph I took was of a couple of calves in the open door barn in the first field on leaving the village for Tissington. I walked the route yesterday but did not find the camera. I wonder if anyone has found the camera. There are many photographs on the camera I would hate to lose and I am happy to reward the finder.

If you have any information you can either message him via Facebook (see his post https://www.facebook.com/parwich/posts/1085139101521293) or let the Blog Team know (parwich@hotmail.co.uk) and we will pass a message on.

Update, 27th July 2014: Camera Found

Thank you Richard for this update

Thank you for posting my missing camera report. I am pleased to say it has been discovered close to Tissington. It is badly damaged but I hope I may be able to recover the memory card. Best wishes to you all and thank you.

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Apologies to our army of supporters who were expecting us to play Youlgrave this week, but yours truly jumped a week on the fixture list. However, those eagle eyed Blog peeps spotted my deliberate error and corrected it. Clever people aren’t they?

Matlock Tuesday League.
Away -19 July – 6.30pm – Bradwell.

Of late we cannot have any complaints about the weather; it has been glorious, shame about the bowls in the Tuesday League though. We were well and truly beaten by Bradwell. At the time of writing Bradwell were well and truly bottom of the league though the way they despatched us you would have thought the opposite. We only managed to win one game and thank goodness for that with Harry B and Rick M scoring 21 – 9. It would have been a major loss, but for those 21 points. John B and Clara E scrambled to 12, with Pat B and Sue A getting a further 11. In the final game we could only muster 8. The totals were Bradwell 72, Parwich 52. Still as I said the weather was glorious! We definitely play Youlgrave next week so we are still looking for a camel to stick under the green.

  • Next match – Home – Youlgrave – 26 July – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday League
Home – Wirksworth – 21 July – 1.45pm.

Having come a deserved cropper on Tuesday night we needed to ‘up our game’ as they say for this match. Again great weather and even better bowls. Rick M and Harry B carrying on where they left off on Tuesday won 21 – 1. What a start. Although our other pairs could not match this result they did play really well. Liz H and Sue A coming back from 9 -1 down to get us 16 valuable points. Ian J and Clara E did have a bit of an off day but still got 11. The score after doubles was 48 – 43 Parwich in the lead.

In the singles John H and Tony A led the way with 15 – 6 and 15 – 2 wins respectively. The remainder of our singles players managed to restrict their opponents to single figures, although we did lose one game. The total score in the singles was Parwich 82, Wirksworth 43. Final score 130 – 86 to Parwich. Still riding high in second place in the league.

  • Next match – Home – Matlock Park – 1.45 pm

Another good club event on Sunday, the square robin. Come and see what one looks like down at Parsons Croft at around 10.30 am.

John B.

DDDC Bins Survey

image

Your views welcome on whether we should charge for replacement waste & recycling containers

We would like to know whether you support the idea of being charged for replacement waste and recycling containers. Replacing damaged or lost bins currently costs Derbyshire Dales Council Tax payers around £28,000 a year.

We’re now asking for your views in an online survey that also asks whether or not we should end the annual free supply of black sacks and biodegradable garden waste sacks for households that can’t accommodate bins. Providing free sacks currently costs Council Tax payers more than £30,000 a year.

Find out more and go to the online survey

Thank You Parwich

The Horticultural Society would like to thank those who opened their gardens on 26 June and everyone in the village who supported the event. Open Gardens could not be the success it is without the support of the village. This year Open Gardens raised £1,490.35 gross. Expenses need to come off that figure but it will mean that once again the Horticultural Society will be able to help other groups in the village. Letters requesting funding should be sent to Lesley Goodman prior to the AGM on 4 November.
