Tree Felling and Fire Wood

On Saturday the 31st October two trees at the Millennium Green on the bank above Rowan Cottage are planned to be cut down for safety reasons. At this time the contractors still intend to go ahead but this may be subject to the weather conditions on the day.

Some of the wood, cut small enough to be safely taken away by wheel barrow will be left on the Green for anyone who wishes to take it away for fire wood. Anyone wishing to collect some of this wood must wait until the contractors have completely cleared the site.  Please take are when collecting any wood. If you chose to take any wood this will be taken as acceptance that you are doing so at your own risk. If you are collecting wood no vehicles should be taken onto the Green or allowed to block the road.

Any wood left in the driveway of Rowan Cottage is not for public collection.

Regards

Andrew Martin

Clerk RFO. Parwich Parish Council

Rachel Robinson

We wish to communicate to the village the sad news that our mother, Rachel Robinson, wife of Andrew Robinson and resident of Church Farm in the village from 1997 – 2012 passed away peacefully ten days ago at her home on the south coast.
Due to all the restrictions at this time, my brother and I have arranged a small family funeral at St Peters this Friday at midday. We are able to extend the invite to anyone interested to be on the village green to see in the coffin at approximately 11.45 a.m. as well as joining the family for the burial at around 12.45 p.m. 
Our family will then be around the village across Friday as the grandchildren (Grace, Noah, Molly, Woody, Isaac, Rex and Seth) and our wives (Derryn and Sally) have many happy memories that they wish to re-explore since the happy Parwich days that they remember so vividly.
Many thanks and best wishes.
Mark and Jim Robinson, Andrew and Rachel’s sons.
We are happy if you wish to pass on my email address to anyone wishing to communicate with us at this time. (307jsr@gmail.com)

Oil price Little Changed

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

There has been little change in oil prices over the past few weeks. With low demand being offset by production cuts by OPEC+ members, Brent Crude remains between $42 and $43. However, suppliers are seeing an increase in demand as the weather turns colder. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days.

Tip: With the weather turning wetter and more rainfall on its way, it might be a good idea to ensure no water has made its way into your tank, as if sucked up into your system it can cause real issues. Water Scavengers are dropped into your tank to absorb any water sat at the bottom of your tank.
You can find a selection of different sized Water Scavengers in our Club Store, as well as Water Test Kits if you wish to check your tank for water first.

Rate:  £0.2634 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Halloween Trail

Hopefully some of you have seen this and we are keen to do it in Parwich. The aim is to display Halloween items in your windows / around your gardens so we can do a hunt around the village. Once you have spotted one the child (or yourself!) is rewarded with a treat (that you have taken along with you) and then you go onto find the next one. We were thinking of having them on display from the Thursday – Sunday.

In addition to this David and Christine Goldstraw from Church Walk have very kindly agreed to open up their spooktacular garden on Halloween for the children to walk around and look at their display (arrows will mark which way to walk). Christine is happy to answer any questions people may have.

I look forward to seeing your ghostly creations. Lucy M
