Another great week for your illustrious Parwich bowling team as they record a further two victories across the leagues.
Tuesday evening at Bakewell produced a truly remarkable result as Parwich finished just one point away from a maximum 84 points * (* maximum for Tuesday league format only, Thursdays are max 153.) Two of the games were won by just one point, one lost by a mere point, plus one crushing victory gave us a score of 83-63. A good evening’s work indeed on Bakewell’s somewhat eccentric green.
On Thursday afternoon we entertained mid-table Matlock Bath and enjoyed a momentous tight battle which swung one way and then the other. After being down after the doubles rounds we triumphed across the singles to finally record a scoreline of 126 to 116 and further advance our position of league leaders. That there’s a good team spirit within our small club at present is undeniable; each member can have a sense of great satisfaction at the way we’re playing.
Tuesday sees us play Bakewell again, this time in the home fixture. It’ll take place at the same time as the England v Germany match so those that would have liked to won’t get to see it – but I’m sure there’ll be as many twists, turns and excitement at Parson’s Croft as there will be at Wembley… and with a good old cup of char to boot!

Burst Pipe

There is a burst water pipe up here opposite Hallgates at the top of the snicket that takes you down to the school. I’ve tried a few times unsuccessfully to report it to Severn Trent & just can’t get through !!!!!! There must be quite a deluge collecting at the bottom near Arnold & Sandras!!!! I’m hoping that someone will have managed to get through to Severn Trent but I’ll keep trying anyway. Karen R

We are planning to visit Thornbridge Hall Gardens on 28 July. Entry is free to RHS members ( on production of current membership card) or £7.00 to non RHS members, meet in the car park at Thornbridge Hall at 1.30pm. As the venue is quite close and coach travel is a little complicated we are lift-sharing.
Please let me know if you would like to join us and also whether you are prepared to drive and offer lifts to others (tel 561 or email glynisdrummond@gmail.com) I will then coordinate the lift share.

Plant Sales

A big thank you to all who bought or provided plants over the last couple of months. We made an incredible £325 for Parwich and District Horticultural Society. This will certainly more than cover the costs of the talk later on this year.
We hope to have more plants for sale on July 21st when a selection of gardens will open in the village for An Evening  in the Garden. Donations of plants gratefully accepted, preferably labelled.

Oil Price Steady

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

Brent Crude falls back slightly to below $73 a barrel on news the Federal Reserve said it may lift rates as early as 2023, a year earlier than previously expected, sending the dollar higher. However, strong oil demand and lower U.S. Crude oil inventories are capping any downward trend.
Delivery times are 5 to 10 working days from Club order on Monday. Please note the delivery times are estimated and are subject to weather and supply conditions. If you are low or have run out then this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.3995 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

We Shall Not Be Moved….

A “stonking” good win is about the only way to describe Tuesday night’s home bowls fixture against Youlgreave. Results on Tuesdays have been patchy, to say the least, but all came together on this occasion as Parwich stormed to an impressive 81-48 victory. A maximum 84 score from the four games was only narrowly missed on the final game though Dawn and Fran kept us excited with a fighting performance, the scores neck and neck swinging one way then the other, until well after 8 o’clock. The winning wood from Carol of Youlgreave brought rapturous applause from both teams.
On Thursday our form continued. We were back on the road at Matlock Golf Club, the only team that look reasonably capable of catching us as league leaders – therefore a must-win match for both sides. Well it was tight, but Parwich were able to travel home feeling pretty pleased with ourselves after battling to a 123 to 110 win. A bit early to taste the champagne from the Championship trophy just jet but we can start to dream if we keep it up. Stylish celebrations for at least some of us included fish and chips and a pint on the way home!  
Next week sees the team travel to Bakewell on Tuesday and then play host to Matlock Bath on Thursday afternoon. Unequivocally more entertainment there than the Nation saw from Mr Southgate’s men last night…..
