Parwich on TV

Parwich will be making an appearance on the BBC One  Inside Out programme at 7.30pm on Monday 3 October. The programme is about affordable housing and should feature some shots of Smith Close and Parsons Croft and maybe other parts of the village. Although the filmmakers were in the village for an entire afternoon earlier in the year, Parwich was only one of the places they were filming for the programme – so don’t blink as you may miss it!

Friday Film Showing

film-large-poster

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg5zSVxx9JM

 October Parwich Film Show 

SPOTLIGHT

 The true story of how, in 2001, reporters at the Boston Globe investigated accusations of Catholic priests in Boston molesting children. Following on from leads, interviews with victims, existing court cases and extensive research they reveal decades of abuse. Moreover, they discover that the issue was far wider spread than they at first believed, that senior members of the diocese were aware of the issue and that the church systemically covered up the crimes.

WINNER BEST PICTURE IN THE RECENT OSCARS

Spotlight has been critically acclaimed, and has been included in many critics’ Top Ten Films of 2015 lists. The film has received over 100 industry and critics’ awards and nominations.

FRIDAY 7TH October 7.45PM    

Free Entrance.   Refreshments.     Raffle

Brilliant effort by the Tough Mudders and all supporters!

With the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday discussing feedback received and possible next steps I’m a little concerned that many people may have missed the information posted here on the blog as these posts have now disappeared down the page.

I think it’s worth pointing to the information concerning the proposal and also issues and concerns raised in comments on the blog.

The Council website pages has a comprehensive set of information concerning the plans which can be found here

A number of people have expressed concerns to us and have quoted the Mast Sanity site as a good starting point for researching possible negative consequences of a mast so close to the village. Their information on masts can be found here

Mast Sanity and other research expresses concerns regarding health issues for residents within 400m of a mast. Others such as the Government and the NHS say  there are no health issues.

just for interest, here’s the plan of Parwich with 100metre distances from the proposed mast location that was posted previously in a comment.

image

In posting this I wish to make clear I am neither endorsing nor opposing the mast plans but merely seeking to make sure residents of the village are aware and can find the relevant information.
