Dales to move into Covid Tier 4
Central government has moved all of Derbyshire – including the Derbyshire Dales – into Covid Tier 4 from one minute past midnight tonight.

Three quarters of England’s population will be under the toughest Covid rules from Thursday after it emerged that 60% of UK coronavirus cases are now the new, more transmissible, strain of Covid-19.

Being in Tier 4 means we cannot leave or be outside of the place we are living unless we have a reasonable excuse.

Another Missing Package

Update 30/12 Parcel has now arrived!

I ordered a Christmas gift for my daughter in law on 28th November from the US.
It was something she told me she would really like. 
Sadly it did not turn up here and I had to buy her a replacement. 
I now find out the parcel was delivered to the Creamery, Creamery Lane on 23rd December. 
Suffice it say it hasn’t arrived here. 
If it has turned up on anyone’s doorstep please let me know
Thanks so much

Your Christmas ‘bubble’
Here’s what the Government’s new Covid Christmas restrictions mean if you live in a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area (Derbyshire Dales remains in Tier 3).

You may see a maximum of two other households (your ‘Christmas bubble’) on Christmas Day only, but you cannot see anyone from a Tier 4 area. Only form a bubble if you feel you absolutely need to.

Thank you Santa

Richard T has sent us a video of Santa on his trip around the village yesterday.

On behalf of the people of Parwich I would like to thank Santa and his extra special elves, Andrew, Jackie, Alan and Liz for making it happen. I feel it could become a new tradition?!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped out with the Elf Trail it was very popular and I’ve received some great feedback so thank you again for all the hard work you put in.

Finally on behalf of the Carnival and Recreation Committee I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

For those struggling to see the video, here are two more photos with thanks to Nina M:

Church Today

Due to the worsening decision with COVID-19, although the Government allows worship to continue, it has been decided that it would be wise to cancel our 10am service in church.  We are very sorry and look forward to meeting up again soon.will

Oil Price Up and Up

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

Oil prices continue to rise as increased demand from China and India sees them buying more oil than the previous month. Brent Crude is now over $52 a barrel. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days but are subject to weather and supply conditions.

Beat the January rush – Orders this weekend are most likely to be delivered after Christmas with the 10 working day deliveries being made by the 7th January, so please do order early if you require oil in January. As always in the winter months, supply is subject to weather and supply conditions. We hope there will not be any Brexit disruption but most of our fuel is imported so please order early.

However, if you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.3595 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Church Tomorrow

There are two Parwich-related opportunities for worship tomorrow:

  • At 1000 in church there’s a candle/Christingle service where each person lights their own holding candle symbolising the light of Jesus and bringing hope to people living in darkness.  Due to social distancing, space in our church building is reduced so we may not be able to welcome everyone in. To avoid on-the-door disappointment, please telephone or email in advance to ensure there is a place for you in the building (contact details below).  CANCELLED in order to keep everyone safe
  • At 1800 we’re on Zoom for our local version of King’s College, Cambridge Nine Lessons & Carols.  Bring a candle and reduce other lights to increase the atmosphere!  As this service will be recorded, if you prefer your faces not to be recorded, please set up so that your candle is visible.  At 1730 bring your own tea/coffee & cake for a chat if you wish.  (Contact details below.)

Contacts:

The church is also open on Sundays 9am – dusk for private prayer

House Wanted to Rent

Can anyone help? Hopefully we will be starting building work on our house in Creamery Lane in late January/February. We need somewhere to live while this is going on, preferably in the village. Does anyone have or know of a house that we could rent for up to six months at the most. We need two bedrooms and it can be furnished or unfurnished. We promise not to throw wild parties or grow weed in the bathroom and we will look after it immaculately. If you could phone me on 07970 490010 that would be fantastic. Patti Beasley

Carols on your doorstep?!

Carols on your doorstep !

Listening to radio 4 this afternoon I heard that some places have arranged to sing carols on their doorsteps as a community. Some have been doing this every Thursday in December but I wondered if people showed an interest we could decide on one date together? Just a few socially distanced carols on our own doorsteps  to cheer us all up. What are peoples thoughts?

Elf Trail

Don’t forget you can still complete the Elf Trail up until Sunday 20th December 🎅🎅🎄😍. If you don’t know the village too well you may want to leave out 9, 10 and 11 as they are quite a trek but you can still guess the words and get a treat 😉. You can walk straight from West View across in front of the Church to Church Cottage. If you are unsure just message me (lucywigley@googlemail.com). The pub shop is open to collect sheets 10.30am – 2.30pm Saturday and Sunday.

Happy hunting

Grey Bin Wednesday

Parwich welfare fund is planning to make a recipe booklet to raise money for our village fund. Money raised will go towards helping people from our village who are in need, this could be anything from buying logs for someone or just a bunch of flowers when someone is poorly or feeling low.

In due course we will be asking village residents for their favourite tried and tested recipes! For now we are looking for a cost effective way to have the books printed as we need to make as much money for the fund as possible ( we will be selling them for approximately £5 each). It could be a stapled booklet or ring bound format, approx. 50 pages with a small image per recipe. If anyone has any contacts or knows of a reasonable printer then we would really appreciate your help. We have already tried instaprint on line, Derby university and Ashbourne business centre.

If you can help, please contact Lucy Burlinson at tigercheeks@hotmail.co.uk or 390 112.

Thank you 😊

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

PDNPA Survey

We have received this from the NationalPark Authority.

Can you help the Peak District National Park Authority to set policy for the future of the National Park?

Climate change. Nature recovery. Sustainable communities. Low carbon transport.

These are just a few of the big ticket challenges the National Park is facing. The planning process is vital in addressing such issues and works best when local authorities, local communities and developers work together creating effective partnerships to achieve positive outcomes. Planning matters, this is why when we produce plans and policies, we ask everyone to take part in the consultation.

We are currently reviewing the Peak District National Park Local Plan. It is a plan for the future development of the local area which we write and implement in close consultation with you. We use the planning policies we develop in the Local Plan to make decisions on the hundreds of planning applications we receive each year. To make the right decisions we need your help to decide what goes into the Local Plan and that will guide development in the National Park over the next 20 years.

Please complete the survey at https://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/planning/policies-and-guides/the-local-plan and find out more about the Local Plan review process, including timescales, background information and how to get involved.

Survey results will be published online. These will influence the next stage in the formal consultation, ‘Issues and Options’.

If you have any queries, please contact the policy team on policy@peakdistrict.gov.uk

Wheelchair Loan Wanted

0.5 day loan of a wheelchair?

My mother is waiting for a hip replacement and therefore limited in her mobility at this time,  I’d like to be able to take her into Chatsworth gardens to see the Christmas lights this year because she’s moving away in 2021.  Is anyone able to lend us a wheelchair for a weekday afternoon and evening (return can either be that evening or first thing the following morning)?

Thank you for considering this.
