Villages’ Wakes grew out of communities celebrating their church’s patron saint. For us that is St Peter whose feast day is the 29th of June, still used to to calculate the start of Parwich Wakes; our Wakes beginning on the nearest Saturday to the 29th of June.

The current St Peter’s Church was built in 1872/73, replacing the smaller Norman building also dedicated to St. Peter. We can see some features of the old Church today in the current building, including the tympanum over the west door, the archway of the west door, the archway between the tower and the nave and the carved faces high up in the side chapel. It is thought that the old church was built in the late eleventh or early twelfth century and would almost have certainly been dedicated to St. Peter as it is unusual for the dedication to be changed. It is possible that there was a previous Saxon church here, but the evidence is inconclusive.

So we have been celebrating as a community at the end of June for at least nine hundred years, though perhaps much longer. These celebrations from the start would have included a lot more than just a church service. Processions and theatricals would have been included, possibly by the fourteenth or fifteen century involving a play celebrating Robin Hood and Maid Marion. The prettiest or best dressed youngsters might even have be elected to be that year’s Marion and Robin, a precursor to out Carnival parade and fancy dress competition. It is likely that there were local sports, foot races and perhaps archery competitions, certainly when archery practice was compulsory from the fourteenth right up to the sixteen century. ‘Beers’ were a big part of the celebrations, where local guilds and groups brewed beer to sell during the revels. This tradition was revived not so long ago with the Oddfellows Ale, brewed by Leatherbritches. The ‘beers’ raised money either to fund candles and devotion in the church for each guild’s favourite saint or to help guild members when times were hard. (more…)

Parwich Wakes 2020

As you can all imagine Parwich Wakes is going to look a little different this year but we still wanted to mark the occasion before we are back with a bang in 2021. Therefore the Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee have put together a small programme of events for the Wakes Saturday and activities for you to take part in at your leisure throughout the week. We are working closely with the Sycamore, Legion and Odd Fellows so if government rules change and as more things are confirmed we will let you know.

Just to keep everyone in the loop the Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee are not going to make any decisions on the Wakes Programme up until the last minute! We will follow all of the government guidelines around COVID-19 and depending on the situation Wakes may look a little different this year but if we are permitted then we will work closely with the Odd Fellows, Legion and Sycamore and we are are hopeful that some sort of programme can be achieved. It’s a watch this space scenario and if we are allowed with the help of the Community we will do the best we can to make it the best we can.

Stay safe and well
Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee

The Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. We had a lovely evening on Monday singing Christmas Carols (mostly in tune?!) with Ashbourne Town Band, a perfect end to our years events – we were even joined by our very own Christmas donkey! (thanks Jess and Ben). We would also like to thank Rob for the delicious mince pies, Tarmac for our lovely village Christmas tree and Barbara and Alan for the electric. Finally we would like to thank everyone who has supported our events and everyone who has helped out throughout the year we couldn’t do it without you. Here’s to a happy, healthy and fun 2020!

The Carnival and Recreation Committee would like to thank everyone who came along and supported the bonfire this year. It was a great evening helped by loud fireworks, curry and chips and a break from the rain (thankfully it isn’t tonight). Your support is invaluable in keeping these events going.

An extra special thank you to everyone who helped build and light the bonfire and to Roy and David for an excellent job raking the site clean.

See you next year

Wakes 2020 Programme

The Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee are starting to work hard on putting together the Wakes programme for 2020 but we need YOUR help! We are keen to revamp the latter end of the week – mainly Thursday/Friday and we are also keen to make sure we are offering activities which appeal to the older children and young at heart in the village.

If you have any ideas on what events/activities we could offer then please email us at lucywigley@googlemail.com and we will very happily discuss them. We are a very very small Committee so if you are also able to help organise a new event then that would be very gratefully appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your amazing ideas
