Defibrillator Training

Training on how to use the Static Defibrillator, which is located on the wall of the Sycamore Inn, Parwich, will take place in the Parwich Memorial Hall, 7:30pm, Thursday 20 September 2018.

It is useful to have as many people as possible trained to use defibrillators as they can be found in so many locations these days, opening up the potential to save more lives.

You do not need to be a First Responder (FPOS) to undertake the training, but anyone who would like to become one are more than welcome to.

More details will follow closer to the date about what the training will involve, but just wanted to get the date in peoples’ diaries.

herbes de provence 2

I got fed up of ordering small amounts of herbs that cost a fortune and so I thought I would try buying a bulk bag with the view of trying to sell the extra locally, at a good price….

I have bought ‘Herbes de Provence’, which is a mixture of dried herbs considered typical of the Provence region of south east France. There are numerous versions but this one is a really nice, good quality, mix that I’ve bought before. It contains thyme, marjoram, rosemary, oregano, basil, savoury & tarragon. It has a best before date of end of March 2020.

Typically it is used in Mediterranean cooking (so it goes particularly well with tomato based dishes) and is used to flavour grilled fish and meat but you can use it in loads of things – soups, stews, casseroles, marinades etc. – you can even sprinkle a bit on cheese on toast!

In the supermarkets they sell at 70p-£1.00 for 14g (which is the size of you average supermarket spice jar). I am selling them in bags at £1 for 50g – let me know if you want any (Emma, Parwich 203), or pick some up from the Legion. If you don’t need them to use now, I can also vac pack the herbs so they will keep fresher longer – it will cost 10p extra (only because the vac bags cost 10p each), just let me know.

If this works I may well try buying and selling other herbs / spices locally – so let me know if you would like anything in particular. Also, if you ever need small amounts of herbs or spices (either to try for a new recipe, or because you’ve run out) the chances are I could well have it (I do a lot of cooking!) – feel free to ask – I work from home so I am usually in!

Thanks

Emma, Pond Cottage.

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

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

Rate:  £0.4850 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Not sure how you would describe our form. We seem to vary from not very good to not very very good to bl**dy marvellous. This week was not very, very good to marvellous.

Tuesday League.

Away – Ashwood Park – 24 July – 6.00pm.

Now earlier in the day there had been a stonking amount of precipitation in Buxton, rain to you and me. The wet stuff that comes out of the sky. The difference in the way our bowls played was quite remarkable and although the ‘green’ was still very slick it was really nice to play on. Even when we lost a game it was only by a few points namely Pat B and Dennis E going down 21 – 18. John B, playing with Harry B stormed home 21 – 10, with our captain fantastic Dawn playing with Frances also winning handsomely 21 – 11. We saved the best until last with stupendous Rick and Edith veritably strolling home 21 – 6. What a difference a week makes. Ashwood Park 48, Parwich 81.

Next match – Home – Matlock Bath – 31 July – 6.00pm

Thursday Friendly League.

Away – Bakewell – 26 July – 1.45pm.

Talk about the curates egg, being good in parts, we had an archbishops egg, down-right rancid. And again what a difference a week makes in the bowls world. Bakewell’s green is not particularly good to play on at the best of times, but when there has been no liquid refreshment for the grass it is diabolical. The doubles games were best forgotten with only Sue and Liz getting anywhere near, Bakewell 63, Parwich 38.

Although we shared the 6 singles games 3 each, our scores were the complete opposite of last week, we lost very well. The only bright spot to mention, and what a bright spot it was, was Dennis E playing singles for the first time since he was a teenager (Dennis is in his 80’s) winning 15 – 12. This has to go down in the annals of Crown Green bowls, as one of the greatest games ever played. Fantastic! Suffice it to say we lost 80 – 64. Overall Bakewell 143, Parwich 102. At least we got over a hundred.

Not sure if next week will be any better at Wirksworth, keep your fingers crossed.

Next Match – Wirksworth – 2 August – 1.45pm.

John B.

The drought continues

July 2018 – The Millenium pond has completely dried up, the photo compares the pond to this time last year. Not good timing for the Baby Moorhens who are currently on the pond finding what few puddles there are.

Who has picked blackberries before in July?!

Bowls Report

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Still hanging in there in the Thursday League, but the wheels are well and truly falling off in the Tuesday League. The ‘greens’, as you will be aware, are slicker than ever.

Tuesday League.

Home – Hope Works – 17 July – 6.00pm

Hope works are third in the division and we are/were second. After this evenings attempts we are going to drop like a stone, only one win out of the four games. Dennis and Clara E did us proud though, even though they lost. At one point they were 15 – 5 down, but fought back to only lose by the odd point 20 – 21. Tony and Harry also came close, but lost 16 – 21. Best not mention Sue and Dot except to say, try as they might they could not get to grips with the lightening fast conditions. Thankfully Edith’s fractured left eye lash has heeled sufficiently for her to partner the long suffering Rick. They played Hope’s best pair and won 21 – 16. The final outcome, however, was never in doubt and we lost 62 – 79. Wonder how far this defeat will drop us down the league? Another tricky match next week.

Next match – Away – Ashwood Park – 24 July – 6.00pm

Thursday Friendly League.

Home – Whitworth Park – 19 July – 1.45pm.

Whitworth Park have got to be one of the friendliest clubs in the league. It’s good to play them, win, lose, or draw. No losses or draws today however, with a clean sweep in the doubles games. Dennis E and Liz H winning in great style 21 – 9. Followed closely by Clara E and Sue A 21 – 11, and Ian J, partnered by the rejuvenated Edith, 21 -14. Parwich 63, Whitworth 34. What a good start to the match.

Although we shared the singles game 3 each, our losing players still scored heavily. Dawn A following on from the unmentionable last week, won handsomely 15 – 4, the score being matched by John B. Our other winner was John H who at one point was 9 – 2 down, but came back to win 15 – 10. All in all good results Parwich 80, Whitworth 63. Final score Parwich 143, Whitworth 97. We were third or fourth in the division so this should help us stay somewhere near.

Next Match – Away – Bakewell – 26 July – 1.45pm.

We have got a friendly game against Hazelwood on Sunday, so if you want to see what it’s like to play on an ‘ice rink’ come and have a look – 2.pm

Football Help Needed on Wednesday

To parents and children of Friday football, and other helpful villagers

I was wondering if you can spare a maximum of an hour to help repair the Parsons Croft Football area.

You may have seen previously reported on the blog that due to the dry weather the lines on the football pitch have cracked and opened up making the pitch a little unsafe. Thankfully Peter Trewitt has provided us with approx.. 600kg of fine soil (free of charge… thank you Peter!) to fill in the affected areas. I was hoping for some help doing this.

We will be on the football pitch between 7pm – 8pm this Wednesday evening (18th July). Small trowels, small spades and buckets are all that are required.

Note: If you have any spare bags of sand or soil hidden at the back of your garage feel free to bring this down as I am not sure that 600kg’s of soil is enough. Smaller children can also help.

We understand that eventually the cracks should close together naturally, but this may take many months, so to help speed up the process we are giving the land a helping hand.

Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you Wednesday.
