Oil Price News

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

 

The continued cold spell and high demand for heating oil is keeping suppliers on their toes. Please do not allow your tank to get too low before you order. You may wish to visually inspect your tank rather than rely on your meter as we had a number of members run out as they had not ordered due to incorrect meter readings!

Please can you ensure you have allowed plenty of time for your delivery. Delivery this time of year is subject to weather conditions and supply. If you are about to run out in the next two or three weeks you may wish to make an express order with a local supplier to ensure your tank does not run dry. If you are not sure who to use please do drop me a note.

Due to a change in the legislation on credit cards from the 13th January, many suppliers will no longer accept credit cards as they are no longer able to pass on the credit card fees they are charged. Many are therefore advising from next weekend they will only accept debit card payments.

We have secured a rate and our clubs group oil order terms for this weekend are as follows:

Rate: £0.4950 per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

We have received the following information on bird flu form the Derbyshire Association of Local Councils via our Parish Council.

Last winter the UK experienced several outbreaks of avian influenza – better known as bird flu – and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is asking for help to share information in local communities. This highly contagious disease affects birds including chickens, ducks and geese, and can be fatal to them, devastating farmers’ livelihoods. It is just as much of a risk to those with a few chickens in a back garden as to commercial farmers and anyone who keeps chickens, ducks or geese. Defra is asking local councils to share their advice on bird flu in their respective communities, for example on noticeboards using their poster, through social media or in newsletters.

Please help spread the word

Dog Training Comes to Parwich

Thank you to Viv M for the following information:
 
Judging by how many dogs you see, it is clear Parwich is a dog friendly village and with so many younger pups joining the population, this new class is sure to appeal to dogs of all ages.
Starting Thursday 11th January at 7pm in the Memorial Hall, weekly classes will be run by Dena and Jeff Skellern (Home from Home, Hulland Village) who are already well known to several residents and their four legged friends.
 
For more details and to register your interest, please contact Dena on 01335 372162.

There are two brown hens up just past the post box at 3.10pm this afternoon (Friday). I told them they’ve probably missed the last post for sending Christmas parcels but they wouldn’t hear it. You might want to count your chickens if you live that end of the village. I was out with my hounds otherwise I would have knocked on doors to see if they belonged to people I know who have hens around there.

A New Career at 82!

CCI21122017

Mavis Dale lost her husband Frank just over a year ago and, having been married for 61 years, Mavis knew she had to find something to do to help fill the gap. Spurred on by a request from her teacher granddaughter Becky, Mavis rose to the challenge of writing a story about an animal and a spaceship! An unusual combination but one requested by Becky’s class. Mavis didn’t stop there. Inspired by village life and her family, Mavis created several short stories suitable for children. Advised by her neighbour Ian Johnston to contact the Peak Advertiser, Mavis became an author in print.DSCI0007 (4)

Mavis considers herself to be very much a Parwich person. Born in Brassington as Mavis Swindell, the family moved to Lenscliffe  when Mavis was 3 years old. Mavis attended Parwich school and then passed her 11+ to attend the grammar school in Ashbourne. Until a bus was provided Mavis and others had to walk to Alsop Station to catch the train to Ashbourne to get to school, a mode of transport which Mavis enjoyed.

As a young woman Mavis worked in the offices at Ballidon which is where she met husband- to- be lorry driver Frank Dale. Mavis took the initiative, casually suggesting that Frank might like to come to Parwich Wakes. Frank turned up and that was the start of a courtship which culminated in marriage at Parwich Church in 1954. They started married life in Frank’s home county of Staffordshire before moving to South Wingfield and then fulfilled Mavis’s desire by returning to Parwich, the place she considered to be home, when they moved to Springfields in 1967 with their two sons Alan and Stephen.

Despite having a family to look after, and later grandchildren to spend time with, Mavis was kept busy with doing the paperwork for the haulage business. She is still involved in this side of the business, working alongside her daughter- in- law Caren.

Mavis likes to keep busy and we may well have the pleasure of reading more of her tales in the future.DSCI0005 (3)

Her booklet of delightful short stories can be bought from Mavis at £4.50, 50p of which will go to Children in Need. Copies are also available at Nethergreen Farm.

A big thank you to everyone who came along and joined in the Carols. White Christmas was a definite highlight but not sure we are quite ready for X factor!

The Carnival and Recreation Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout the year and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We would also like to thank Tarmac for their very generous donation of the Christmas tree and lights and Rob Clarke for the yummy mince pies.

Coming to the Crib Service?

 

If you’re coming to the Crib Service please bring a kitchen timer and/or a mobile phone, or both – the more the merrier! Your phone doesn’t need to have any signal. This is a service suitable for all the family.

If there’s a pregnant lady around who’d be happy to be interviewed about her experience of being pregnant so far, that would be good too.

Why? You’ll have to come to the Crib Service to find out! 3pm Christmas Eve, St Peter’s Church.

Oil Price Jumps!

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

We have seen a noticeable jump in rates for this week due to the demand on suppliers leading up to Christmas and into the New Year. The weather over the last week has not helped with many suppliers struggling to keep up with demand with deliveries taking longer as drivers struggled with conditions.

Please can you ensure you have allowed plenty of time for your delivery? Delivery this time of year is subject to weather conditions and supply. Please do not allow your tank to get too low before you order.

Please note we will not be ordering next weekend. Our next order is the weekend of 31st December.

We have secured a rate and our clubs group oil order terms for this weekend are as follows:

Rate: £0.4842 per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Today’s Bin Collection

We have received this from DDDC-

BIN COLLECTIONS UPDATE: All our waste & recycling crews are out today as scheduled. Conditions have improved but some roads in the district continue to be affected by snow and ice. The majority of scheduled collections took place on Tuesday, but there were some areas where it was not possible to collect.

Yesterday we also caught up with some of Monday’s collections and today we have additional vehicles out collecting outstanding collections from Monday and Tuesday.

The message to residents continues to be to leave out bins please and our crews will return as soon as possible, so long as it is safe to do so.

It is likely that we will have to complete the catch-up by working on Saturday.
Your patience is appreciated. Thank you.
