Grey Bin Wednesday

…and Food Caddy

Read Full Post »

As businesses such as pubs and restaurants open their doors to the public from Saturday 4 July, we are offering advice to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply and you may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with track and trace.
We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of coronavirus so maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

We anticipate that the city, and towns across the county, will be busy when establishments re-open for the first time so if you need to book a taxi, make sure you do so well in advance.

The advice is that you should avoid using public transport where possible but if you do need to use a train or bus, remember that face coverings must be worn.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

Owners of on-licences premises will need to have the appropriate risk assessments and plans in place to ensure both staff and customer safety. Owners should seek advice from their local environmental health officers and licensing teams for further advice if required.

Inspector Emma Marshall said: “It’s great for the local economy that the pubs and restaurants can re-open, however people visiting need to be aware that their evening out is likely to be very different from previous nights out in the towns and cities.

“People will need to be patient as queues are likely to be longer than expected and respect the rights of other to socially distance while everyone takes the opportunity to enjoy themselves. We will be supporting our colleagues in environmental health to identify breaches and take appropriate action where necessary.”

Councillor Jonathan Smale, Cabinet Member for Communities, Neighbourhoods and Streetpride, said: “Derby has been awarded Purple Flag status as a safe and welcoming place to come and enjoy a night out for the past six years. Coronavirus isn’t going to change that. We’re working really hard with our great venues to ensure that it’s going to be just as safe to come into Derby and enjoy a really good night out whilst following the necessary guidelines to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

“Things are obviously going to be different and so we’re asking people to be respectful, patient and work with us to make sure we can continue to enjoy a safe night out.”

Traffic

We received this from John V. But I’m sure it echoes a lot of people’s thoughts. We’re all using more delivery services than ever right now and the drivers must be under huge pressure to meet delivery targets.

“Can I just ask that everyone reminds themselves of the dangers of walking on roads through the village. I don’t mean to patronise, but I’m becoming increasingly concerned at the speed of some and mostly delivery vans entering the village from Alsop. I’ve also seen a sudden trend for reversing vans and lorries around here, where there are no pavements, sometimes pretty quickly. 
 
I’m guessing these behaviours will be seen elsewhere in the village and particularly at a time when children are not at school, it would be great to know that they too had been reminded of the need to be aware of traffic, even, but maybe especially in a place like Parwich. Thanks…”

Villages’ Wakes grew out of communities celebrating their church’s patron saint. For us that is St Peter whose feast day is the 29th of June, still used to to calculate the start of Parwich Wakes; our Wakes beginning on the nearest Saturday to the 29th of June.

The current St Peter’s Church was built in 1872/73, replacing the smaller Norman building also dedicated to St. Peter. We can see some features of the old Church today in the current building, including the tympanum over the west door, the archway of the west door, the archway between the tower and the nave and the carved faces high up in the side chapel. It is thought that the old church was built in the late eleventh or early twelfth century and would almost have certainly been dedicated to St. Peter as it is unusual for the dedication to be changed. It is possible that there was a previous Saxon church here, but the evidence is inconclusive.

The old St Peter’s in a nineteenth century water colour

So we have been celebrating as a community at the end of June for at least nine hundred years, though perhaps much longer. These celebrations from the start would have included a lot more than just a church service. Processions and theatricals would have been included, possibly by the fourteenth or fifteen century involving a play celebrating Robin Hood and Maid Marion. The prettiest or best dressed youngsters might even have be elected to be that year’s Marion and Robin, a precursor to out Carnival parade and fancy dress competition. It is likely that there were local sports, foot races and perhaps archery competitions, certainly when archery practice was compulsory from the fourteenth right up to the sixteen century. ‘Beers’ were a big part of the celebrations, where local guilds and groups brewed beer to sell during the revels. This tradition was revived not so long ago with the Oddfellows Ale, brewed by Leatherbritches. The ‘beers’ raised money either to fund candles and devotion in the church for each guild’s favourite saint or to help guild members when times were hard. (more…)

Following a request from the carnival committee, the Parwich Oddfellow committee members have decided to parade the Oddfellow banner on Wakes Saturday, through the village, following behind the band music at 3pm. They will follow the normal Oddfellows walk route.

It would be appreciated if you could support them from the safety of your garden as they pass through the village.

Thank you from the Parwich Oddfellow committee.
