We have received the following request:

Does anybody know how to find out if there are any records that would show past cricket matches played in Parwich? It’s for a friend of mine, Wayne Ward, his Great-Grandad’s name was Arthur Smith, he had some cricket playing brothers (Les and Lawrence) and his Dad (Charlie Smith) and one or possibly both of his uncles (George Smith and William/Bill Smith) were cricketers too. He is trying to find out if any written records might exist. He has a 1910s or 20s photo which shows his Great Grandad’s Dad and Grandad (team manager), but other than knowing that Arthur Smith and his brothers were cricketing well into the 1940s and probably beyond, he doesn’t know much else! Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you lucy B

Information Wanted

Can You Help With Information about the Death of Ian Mellor?

The family of a man who died in an incident in Tissington are urging the public to come forward with information to help the investigation into his death. Ian Mellor was found by police and paramedics in a blue Ford Focus in Chapel Lane, Tissington, at around 2.30am on Thursday 9 July. Ian, who was from Bradbourne, was taken to the Royal Derby Hospital where he died on July 21.

Officers are now making enquiries into the hours prior to the 37-year-old being found and his family are urging anyone with information to come forward. Ian’s mother, Sheila, said: “Ian was a much-loved son, brother and partner and was well known in Bradbourne – as well as Ashbourne and Matlock where he was a regular drinker in a number of pubs. He was a hugely social person and his death has come as a huge shock to his family and friends. I know there must be people who saw Ian the night before he died and I would ask you please, for the sake of his family and friends, please come forward and tell the police anything you might know.”

Anyone with who may have seen Ian between 6.30pm on Wednesday 8 July and 2pm on Thursday 9 July is urged to contact Derbyshire police. It is understood Ian was in the Ashbourne and Parwich areas and any drivers with dashcam footage that may have captured a blue Ford Focus, number plate AK08 TRT, are asked to download any footage and store it safely for an officer to view.

Anyone with information can contact Derbyshire police in confidence using any of the below methods, including reference 20*350106 in any correspondence:

•    Facebook – send us a private message to /DerbyshireConstabulary
•    Twitter – direct message our contact centre on @DerPolContact
•    Website – complete the online contact form http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/Contact-Us.
•    Phone – call us on 101.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

District councillors agreed last night (12 August) to provide extra funding to Freedom Leisure to enable the reopening of Derbyshire Dales leisure centres in Ashbourne, Matlock and Wirksworth with reduced hours and new Covid safety measures. View the meeting again on our YouTube channel. The actual reopening date and operating hours will be announced by Freedom Leisure after a period of mobilisation.

A fourth leisure facility operated on behalf of the council by Freedom – Bakewell Swimming Pool – will remain closed for a further two months after councillors heard that the small size of the facility made current social distancing requirements unworkable.

At the same meeting, councillors agreed to provide financial support to Serco to help the implementation of a new waste & recycling contract. The costs of the unavoidable impact of delays to the delivery of new refuse collection vehicles – associated with manufacturer shutdowns during Covid-19 – are being shared with Serco.  Read more >>

Broken Glass

I have discovered many small pieces of glass all along the road at the top of Creamery Lane outside Rathbourne Court. I have a suspicion that the recycling waste lorry has been leaking the glass, and I am planning to ask the Council to send a road sweeper to clear it up (we have already cleared the road, but the pieces are tiny).

If you see any glass in other parts of the village, can you please let me know, so that I can inform Derbyshire Dales.

Collision

Some time between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning someone has driven into our car while it was parked outside our house opposite to Pump Hill. We didn’t hear it happen and no note has been left. (see photos) To hit it going forward would have meant the other vehicle was on the wrong side of the road. But there are no skid marks or damage down the side of the car. Perhaps someone reversed into it? If anyone saw this happen or remembers passing and seeing (or not)  the damage caused then any information would be gratefully received. Or if you have seen any suspicious new damage on any other vehicle!

Church on Sunday 9 August

This Sunday (9th) there will be a service of Morning Prayer at 10am, in St Peter’s church, Parwich. All are welcome.  (Please note that Government guidelines means that mask wearing is now compulsory)

Martin C

Your invitation to a service in church during COVID19, and what to expect

Welcome to your church.

To protect each other, we are following the guidelines and laws around gathering and worshiping inside the church.

You have a responsibility with everyone involved to follow these guidelines, set by the Government, The House of Bishops and Bishop Libby here in Derby Diocese.

Please do not come to church if you are feeling ill in any way. You may decide it is not right for you to attend church, either for yourself or to protect others in your close group, who, perhaps are shielding.

The church has been Spring cleaned and aired. The risk assessment has been approved by Archdeacon Carol.

These are the steps as we come into the building.

Please queue up the path observing 2 meters social distancing. You should wear a face mask over your nose and mouth.

On arrival at the outer door, please sanitize your hands.

Pick up a service order (and please take it home with you)

The warden will invite you to enter the church and tell you where you may take a seat inside. Look for a place marker like this in the pew they tell you is for you today.

You may sit next to anyone from your own household, only.

Please avoid touching anything (pews, font, rails) on your way to your seat, or any person.

The seating has been set 2 meters apart. Please sit exactly where the fish sign is, as the distance within each pew has been calculated.

This probably means that you cannot sit where you usually sit. This is to avoid people walking past others as they take their seats, especially in our smaller churches which only have one door.

While you wait for the service to start, you may want to look around at the building; all the features you remember and have missed; stained glass windows, stone walls, pulpit. If you are in a different seat to usual, maybe you can see features you haven’t seen for a while. Please smile at any new people who have joined in.

Please remain in your seat until the end of the service.

Sorry, no singing is permitted yet, so our service will consist of Bible readings, prayers, a talk and some music.

You may want to stand, sit, kneel, as you feel called and able. If you prefer, remain seated.

At the end of the service we will sign the Peace (please do turn and share that with everyone in the service.)

Sadly there will be no refreshments or gathering for a chat inside the church building.

Please follow instructions on the order in which you leave the church – it will be the reverse of how everyone came in – those nearest the door first. This will maintain the 2 meter social distancing.

Remember to take your service sheet home with you, along with any tissues, umbrella, anything you brought. The church will be locked for 72 hours following the service, with no entry permitted. This is to allow the COVID19 virus to become ineffective before the church is dusted and swept as usual.
