Parwich Legion

Read Full Post »

The start of the new season of Thursday and Tuesday league matches has brought varying results for Parwich. The curtain-raiser at home to Wirksworth, played on a warm and sunny afternoon, certainly brought a valliant effort, but despite winning more games we were narrowly pipped to a loss by a mere 3 points, the final score being 127-130. A close encounter throughout indeed.
However Tuesday Captain Dawn Alsopp rallied her troops for Tuesday evening and her intrepid men and ladies replied with an impressive 80 to 47 win over Bradwell. Under the swirling dark clouds that threatened much but in the end delivered only a sprinkle the Team rose to the occasion. Only the plummeting evening temperature had a say and the evening finished with Sue Ash doing an impression of Ernest Shackleton as he set out to conquer the Antarctic.
It’s all great fun, and the Team will welcome new members, so why not turn up to one of the Sunday open sessions and have a go – all equipment can be provided. It is fervently hoped that in the coming months we will be able to acknowledge our opponents with the customary warm handshakes and the offer of a pint at the conclusion of hostilities.

Oil Price Up

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

Brent Crude slips back slightly this week to $66 a barrel due to a larger than expected inventory builds.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and please allow for the May bank holiday adding an extra day to delivery times. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Remove water built up in your tank – Sunny weather can warm your tank and cause condensation to form. To prevent this causing issues we recommend using a water scavenger which will absorb contaminated water in the tank. It is simple to use, just fix the cord to the tank and drop in the scavenger. Or if you would like to test for water you can purchase a Water Test Kit. For more information please visit The Club Store.
Also, as spring has arrived and nature is now well and truly blossoming, it is a good idea to check your tank visibility to check that no greenery is starting to grow over or around your tank. If it is, please ensure you cut back any greenery that may obscure your tank so the drivers can complete a full inspection and a successful delivery.

Rate:  £0.3885 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Parwich Wakes 2021

Wakes this year starts on Saturday 26th June and some of you may be wondering why we have been a bit quiet about it! The problem we have is that it is so close to the government roadmap date of the 21st June it really is hard for us to know what to do for the best!

The Carnival and Recreation Committee have met this week and have decided that we won’t be holding the Carnival as usual but we will be doing the fancy dress competition from your home, with the judges driving around to see you all. We are also hoping to include a float category so they can follow the pick up playing the band music. We will be doing the Treasure Hunt on the Sunday, with both an adult and junior category and the Hill Race will be similar to last year with a few more categories. The rest really does depend on the next two government announcements. I know the Odd Fellows are meeting and are hoping to carry on as best they can – dependent on the next announcement on the 17th May so hopefully we will be able to put the full programme together after that date. We will also be working with the Legion and the Sycamore to provide as best a Wakes as we can whilst staying safely within the regulations.

We are always more than happy to take any suggestions on what we can do – just Facebook Messenger or email lucywigley@googlemail.com  and hopefully we will be able to give you some more concrete news in a month.

In the meantime start planning your fancy dress and running up Parwich Hill to improve your times!

Church on Sunday

Church on Sunday

There are two opportunities for worship in Parwich provided by our village churches:

  • 11am in the church: A shorter all age service – suitable for everyone – thinking about God as our protector and St George as today (Friday) is St George’s Day.  Please bring a mask unless you are exempt.  Any hymn singing will occur outside the church.  Social distancing will be observed and there won’t be any refreshments encouraging socialising.
  • 6pm on Zoom: A traditional service of Evening Prayer from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.  There will be opportunity to sing loudly in your own homes without anyone hearing you.

Both services led by Rev Carollyn.  Contact her on 664132 or Andrew on 390684 for further details, including for Zoom access by laptop, tablet and any kind of phone.

Church on Sunday

Church meets tomorrow

Tomorrow on Zoom we’re celebrating the 70th anniversary of the formation of the Peak National Park that we all enjoy.  We’ll be using contemporary words from the Northumbria Community and (hopefully) singing hymns in our homes while muted so not broadcasting to everyone else!

The congregation will be gathering between 1730 and 1800:

  • 1730 bring your own tea/coffee & cake for a chat if you wish
  • 1800 service starts

Contact Rev Carollyn on revcarollyn@peakfive.org or 664132 or Andrew C on andrew@colliefamily.plus.com or 390684 for info on how to join in via computer, tablet and phone (including landline) and access the words.

We hope to see and hear you.

Hen owners – Fox Alert No. 2

Here at Pond Cottage we have lost two chickens, presumably to the fox that Vicky saw on 4th April. Going on the location of the residual feathers, one was taken in the field between Pond Cottage and Veronica’s and the other in the field behind Pond Cottage, on the boundary with Veronica’s field. Both would have been taken in the daytime, one today and one probably yesterday (or today, or the day before). I am going to keep mine in for a while so please be careful if you have hens as I am sure he / she will be on the lookout for an alternative source of lunch. The fox is clearly pretty fearless and cunning!

Oil Price Steady

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

Brent Crude has remained relatively stable this week at around $63 a barrel. Increased demand which would normally push up the costs is being offset as the markets worry about the 3rd wave of the pandemic and reports of new lockdowns circulate, particularly across Europe.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and subject to supply and weather conditions. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Check your oil level: With the continued cold weather we are all using a lot more fuel. Please make a visual inspection of your tank levels and order in plenty of time.

Rate:  £0.3650 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Oil Price Down a Little

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

New pandemic lockdowns around Europe and further afield keep a lid on price rises, with Brent Crude hovering around $63 / $64 a barrel this week.
Delivery times are 7 to 10 working days from Club order on Tuesday. Please note, the delivery times and allow for the extra bank holiday days around Easter. Delivery times are an estimated delivery window.

TIP: Visual inspection of tank – With a long weekend ahead it might be worth inspecting your tank to confirm your meter is working correctly and to ensure there are no sags, cracks or bulges in the tank, that the base of the tank is sturdy and adequate for the tank size and weight, and that the delivery drivers are able to see at least 3 sides of the tank when they do their visual inspections, to avoid any possible refused deliveries.

Rate:  £0.3650 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])
