Battling on Towards the End

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

Last match played in one League and only two more left in the other. All in all not a bad season for smallest Village and Club in Leagues.

Tuesday League.

Home – Matlock Golf Club – 28 August – 6.00pm.

A bit of a bogey team for us. We somehow can’t get to grips with the Golf Club, perhaps we should try a mashie niblick on a few ends. Having said that whether it was because it was the last match of the season or there wasn’t an ‘R’ in the month, we won! Captain Dawn was having a night off and Harry B partnered Frances with great effect. Perhaps Dawn should have more nights off because they won handsomely 21 – 9. Tony A and John B also had a good win 21 – 15 with Tony playing a blinder. Try as they might Dot and Sue came a gallant second, but they did not get the rub of the green. Finally our trusty pair, Edith and Rick brought home the bacon, 21 – 16. Final score Parwich 75, Golf Club 61. We are third in the league, but realistically when all the results are in we will be fourth or fifth. A lot of thanks go to Captain Dawn who puts up with us and sorts out the team and who should play with who. Many thanks for a fine job done. What will 2019 bring?

Thursday Friendly League.

Home – Chatsworth – 30 August – 1.45pm.

Chatsworth are top of the League, and deservedly so, how would we get on? The commentators curse fell on Ian J this week. Playing with Liz H they lost a hard fought game 16 – 21. I terms of doubles players Ian is 15 out of 198 players in the League. What about that! Our remaining pairs also unfortunately lost so after the doubles we were 36 – 63 down.

There were some cracking singles games with Frances and our Edith leading the way winning 15 – 3 each. Although we only won one other singles our players managed to accumulate some good points and we won the singles 76 – 64. Not quite enough to overhaul the 27 point deficit from the doubles. Still a good result against the runaway leaders. Parwich 112, Chatsworth 127.

Next Match – Away – Chatsworth B – 6 September – 1.45pm.

We have received the following message from the Legion….

Thank you to all those brave souls who took on the challenge of the Roystone Grange climb on Monday. It was a great turn out and the sun sort of came out too so it made the 10 mile ride a very pleasant afternoon. Thank goodness there was a really tasty barbecue and great beer to celebrate the achievement.
If you’re sad you missed it, not to worry as, by popular request, we’re sure to repeat the challenge again soon.

Bowls Match Report

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

The greens are ‘greening’ up again after the drought conditions we were playing under. Not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing from our point of view. Only a few matches left in the 2018 season.

Tuesday League.

Away – Wirksworth – 21 August – 6.00pm.

Penultimate match for us in this league and we are still trying hard. Tony A and John B played well to get us off to a good start by winning 21 – 10. Pat B and Dot fought like Trogan’s coming back from being well down to losing 17 – 21. Captain Dawn and Frances, playing their best pair had a blinding result winning 21 – 15. Finally Edith and Rick could not quite give us another win losing 19 – 21. Although we shared the games 2 each we only dropped 6 points from the maximum 84. As well as the bowls it was the 80th birthday of one of the Wirksworth players and we enjoyed a few nibbles and a glass of wine. Congratulations Harold A. Here’s to the next 80.

Final match – Home – Matlock Golf Club – 28 August – 6.00pm.

Thursday Friendly League.

Away – Matlock Park – 23 August – 1.45pm.

The star of Parwich Bowls at the moment is Ian J who, irrespective of who he plays with in the doubles, seems to come out on top. This week was no exception playing with Sue A they won 21 – 4. Audrey and Harry B also did us proud winning 21 – 8. You need a little luck in bowls and I think it fair to say that our third pair Keith B and Liz H did not have the ‘rub of the green’, but still managed a good 15 points. Matlock 33, Parwich 57.

There was a surprise in the singles with Frances (she who is the other half of our Tuesday pair with Dawn) losing. This, this year is a collectors item. Other members of the team however came through with Tony, John B and Dawn winning to 1, 3, and 4 respectively. Matlock 52, Parwich 79. Final score Matlock 85, Parwich 136.

Next Match – Home – Chatsworth A – 30 August – 1.45pm.

John B.

There’s still time to dig out your bike and get some oil on the chain and air in the tyres, in readiness for Monday’s Parwich Legion Bike Ride. The weather looks like it’s going to be perfect for cycling and the great news is, the route finishes with a long decent back into Parwich, so they’ll be no gasping for breath when you reach the bar for a well earned drink.

The route map and guide notes are provided below (click to enlarge) and markers will be set out to show you they way, so come along to join us for a 3pm depart.

If you have any questions please call Jon on 390075.

A Sad Event

Our beloved family pet has late this afternoon been hit by a car. What is frustrating is that the person driving did not stop. Fortunately Petra died instantly.
Could I please ask all those passing through the village to slow down, as it’s not only animals that I’m thinking about but children too. Just because it’s a 30 zone does not mean you drive at 30mph and or above!

New Business?

Free workshops for new Dales businesses

Free coaching workshops are on offer in September for would-be entrepreneurs thinking of starting or growing a business in the Derbyshire Dales.

The three-hour sessions in Bakewell, Wirksworth and Sudbury are being delivered by Growing Rural Enterprise Ltd, which gives business support through the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Launchpad project in partnership with Derbyshire Dales District Council.

To book in, contact business mentor Julie White from Growing Rural Enterprise (GRE) on 07971 666474 or email info@growingruralenterprise.co.uk.

The sessions, aimed at start ups and businesses under 24 months old, take place at the District Council’s Agricultural Business Centre in Bakewell on Thursday 20 September from 10am to 1pm and at Wellspring Church in Wirksworth on the same day from 4-7pm. The third workshop takes place at GRE’s office in Main Road, Sudbury, on Tuesday 25 September from 4-7pm.

With ‘match’ funding provided by the District Council, the project is also supported by the European Regional Development Fund, part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. Additional funding also comes from the SCR Combined Authority.

Julie, who runs GRE with fellow director Nick Platt, said: “These are free and focused workshops for people thinking of starting a business or working for themselves, delivered by passionate, impartial experts.”

GRE have been working with a range of businesses recently, including a dry stone waller, someone wishing to set up a campsite on the family farm and a woman who recycles adult clothing into baby and toddler clothes.

Leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council, Councillor Lewis Rose OBE said: “These free workshops are a great opportunity for local businesses to grow, but also to network, improve their knowledge and learn about other support available in the area”
