Mad Dogs & Englishmen

Parwich Bowls Club Report

Tuesday evening saw our club at Bakewell in Bath Gardens which I must say are stunning this year. The town should be rightly proud of the flowers there, in fact some of our team chose to spend some of our practice period admiring them rather than getting to grips with the green! It made no difference, however, as we won the match 72-63. We were rather proud of this result because Bakewell’s green is another one-off – a long, thin rectangle with tree roots in one corner! Dawn and Fran did particularly well in an epic game lasting 30 ends.

On Thursday afternoon we were at home to Hazlewood. The weather as you may recall was rather warm! Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in these conditions. We carried on regardless and having lost the doubles 27-63 knew that there was a lot of hard work ahead in the singles. We almost recouped the difference as we won the singles 81-47 only to lose the match 108-110. Again, a good result against quality opposition. Nevertheless, we remain at the bottom of this division and relegation looks almost a certainty at the end of the year.

Oil Price Steady

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Oil prices edged up on Friday, supported by weekly U.S. reports of inventory draws and Middle Eastern tensions. However, the worsening outlook on the global economy capped any real price gains, as Brent Crude oil hovered around $63 a barrel today. Delivery times are 5 to 10 working days.

TIP: With summer in full swing, greenery is blossoming. So it is a good idea at this time of year to cut back any overgrowth that may be surrounding your tank or obscurring access to your property, so that the tanker drivers have clear access to deliver your oil safely.

Rate:  £0.4590 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Please Reduce Your Speed

Polite plea to reduce speed

I would like to put out a plea to all drivers in the village to reduce their speed, especially now the summer has started.Like other grandparents, I shall be looking after my grandchildren occasionally over the summer holiday period. Whilst most drivers are very considerate, some drive at an irresponsible speed. 

As DCC hasn’t accepted the village’s request for a 20 m/h zone, there’s nothing to stop us from adopting this on a voluntary basis.

Oil Club Order Update

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Just a quick update on this weekend’s orders. As tensions in the gulf escalated on Friday evening, I suspect oil prices will rise on Monday morning. As our rates were secured on Friday afternoon before the events took place, we may find suppliers will close their orders on the dot on Monday morning. Therefore if you do wish to order please do so soon and ensure payment is made.

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

With Iran offering a new nuclear deal if the U.S. drops sanctions and an unexpected increase in oil inventories, Brent Crude plunges below $63 a barrel this week. Delivery times are 5 to 10 working days. Delivery times are 5 to 10 working days.

Bowls Club Report

Two lovely games of bowls this week, both at home on the Parson’s Croft green. The weather was perfect and the bowls almost as good.
We started off on Tuesday evening with a convincing win over Whitworth Park: well 3 of our pairs were worthy of that plaudit, the less said about Fran and Tony’s effort the better! Harry and Sue played brilliantly to win 21-3, final result being 72-52 in favour of Parwich.

Now we always say that every point counts when playing bowls and that was certainly true on Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately, we were the team that needed that elusive extra point to at least tie the match as we lost to Chatsworth 108-109. It was a really close contest played with a lot of banter between the teams, an enjoyable afternoon was had by all. Liz and John were in a hurry as they had to be in Derby by late afternoon so they dispatched their opponents 21-2. I blame Tony for providing Chatsworth with the win as he allowed his opponent to score a point. A win of 15-1 was just not good enough, Tony! Harry and Edith also had good close wins and even though we won 5 games out of 9 we still lost the match.

This Sunday at 2pm we have a friendly at home against Hazlewood. Everyone is welcome to spectate or take part.

This week will be our final Friday Football before we take a break for the summer holidays.

During the summer the number turning up for football drop off significantly as people go on their holidays, also James, Charles and I need to recharge our batteries.

The children should be encouraged by their parents to continue to meet up every Friday and play a game between themselves without adult supervision.

We will start back on 6th September.

Many thanks

Lift Wanted to YNOT

We are travelling to the y-not festival on Friday 26th, Sat 27th and Sunday 28th July.  There are 4 of us going at 1pm and returning at 11.30pm on all 3 days. We wondered if anyone in Parwich is going and wanted to share a minibus or if any of the young people in the village wanted some extra spending money for taking us!!

Jo & Dean Elkington,  The Old Smithy.

Oil Price Steady

imageUpdate for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Brent Crude passes $67 a barrel this week as tensions in the Gulf continue to escalate. Delivery times are 5 to 10 working days.

TIP: By grouping your club’s order, the chosen supplier will visit your village with a full load and leave with an empty load, substantially reducing the numerous heavy goods vehicles that would normally drive through your village, thus reducing the impact on our roads and the environment. A club with 100 members will save hundreds of tanker vehicle trips though your village each year.

Rate:  £0.4664 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])
