Covid Vaccination

The NHS are now inviting all aged 60 and over to have their COVID vaccinations, just in case some people haven’t seen it. If you haven’t got your NHS number, the site sorts it anyway. It is through NHS, not your doctors surgery, allowing you to book both vaccinations, but the nearest centre is Derby.

Royal Derby – THANK YOU!

Thank you all so much for getting involved in the donations for the amazing staff at Royal Derby Hospital.

I’m pleased to say that we’ve collected 150 hand creams, 125 lip balms and a whole bag full of biscuits and cereal bars! Amazing!

There’s also still the collection from the lovely people of Tissington to add to the totals.

Thank you again, I’m positive the staff team will really appreciate our gifts.

Royal Derby Donation Update

Thank you all for your amazing support, I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of people wanting to get involved.

We’ve already gathered a whole load of hand creams, lip balms and biscuits, and I’ve placed a large order today with the £200 of monetary donations.

Furthermore, a massive thank you to Adele Bonshor for organising a similar collection in Tissington which will be donated alongside ours

The Parwich collection box will be out through to the end of this week if anyone still wishes to drop in any hand cream or lip balms.

I’ll post again next week with our grand total of donations before they’re dropped off for delivery to the Royal Derby Hospital.

I’m arranging a collection of goodies to be taken in for the amazing staff team at Royal Derby Hospital, as a small token of appreciation for all they are doing.

Having spoken with one of the ICU team I understand that handcreams and lip balms would be very much appreciated, as would biscuits for tea breaks etc.

If anyone would like to get involved there are a couple of ways you can help:

I will arrange to leave a box at the top of our drive (The Orchards) to accept donations of hand creams, lip balms etc.

Alternatively, if it’s easier to donate a monetary amount I will gladly collect it all together and place an online order for some supplies at the end of this week. You’d be welcome to either pop cash in an envelope into our letterbox or contact me to arrange a bank transfer if easier.

I’m hoping to have enough of a collection ready to drop over early next week.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any queries at all.

Many thanks

Rosie (07712 481 197 or Parwich 458)

The directors of public health in Derby and Derbyshire issue a plea to the public to follow regulations as the NHS deals with busiest period so far during the pandemic. 

Derbyshire Local Resilience Forum (LRF), which brings together councils, emergency services and health organisations to tackle the pandemic have seen a significant increase on the pressure placed on our NHS following a steep rise in Covid-19 cases in the area. 

During the last month the number of patients in hospital with confirmed Covid-19 increased by 67% and this continues to rise on a daily basis.

Dean Wallace, Director of Public Health, Derbyshire County Council said: “The reality is that every contact that people have with those outside their household or bubble creates a risk of passing on the virus. One in three people who have the virus show no symptoms, so it is easy to transmit it to others without knowing, and a vulnerable person could be part of every chain.

“There are huge pressures on the NHS in Derbyshire and across the country. Locally, nearly 25% of hospital beds are occupied by people with Covid 19. We all have a part to play in making sure that our hospitals can continue to provide the cancer treatment, elective surgery and other support that we need. Please observe the lockdown, reduce your contact with others, get the vaccine when you are contacted for an appointment and use the community testing facilities when they are available in your area.”

Dr Robyn Dewis, Director of Public Health, Derby City Council, added:

“The rapid rise in COVID cases means that we are at a crucial tipping point locally and nationally, and our NHS is facing extreme pressure. 

“Following lockdown regulations is more essential now than ever, as we are facing the most difficult period of the pandemic so far. We must stay at home unless it is for essential reasons, and if we leave our homes we must keep our distance, regularly wash our hands and wear a face covering we can. We should also isolate and apply for a test if we have COVID symptoms, and be vaccinated as soon as we are offered an appointment.

“These individual actions may seem small, but they make a huge difference in ensuring our local health service has the capacity it needs and in keeping ourselves and loved ones safer.” 

The LRF would like to issue the following advice: 

• Do not visit A&E if it’s not an emergency, call NHS 111 or visit one of Derbyshire’s five urgent treatment centres.
• Adhere to the lockdown regulations and following the hands, face, space guidance, this is crucial to reducing the spread of the virus and the pressure on hospitals.
• Have a vaccine as soon as one if offered, this is also crucial to helping reduce the spread of the virus.
• Following vaccination it is essential to still follow the Government guidance. 

For further information regarding the Government guidance please refer to their website

Warning – Vaccine Scam

Please be aware of the following sent to us by Action Fraud. Please keep an eye on our vulnerable residents who may be taken in at this worry time:

As of 7 January 2021, Action Fraud had received 57 reports from members of the public who have been sent text messages claiming to be from the NHS, offering them the opportunity to sign up for coronavirus vaccinations. The texts ask the recipient to click on a link which takes them to an online form where they are prompted to input personal and financial details. In some cases the online form has looked very similar to the real NHS website.

Pauline Smith, Head of Action Fraud, said: 
“Remember, the vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free of charge. The NHS will never ask you for details about your bank account or to pay for the vaccine. If you receive an email, text message or phone call purporting to be from the NHS and you are asked to provide financial details, this is a scam.”

How to protect yourself:

In the UK, coronavirus vaccinations will only be available via the National Health Services of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a local GP surgery or pharmacy, to receive your vaccination. Remember, the vaccinations are free of charge and you will not be asked for a payment.

The NHS will never:

  • ask for your bank account or card details
  • ask for your PIN or banking passwords
  • arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
  • ask for documentation to prove your identity, such as a passport or utility bills

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726, which is free of charge.

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting

Derbyshire Dales Lockdown News

The rules going into this lockdown weekend
Going into this lockdown weekend please remember it’s against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble.

You cannot leave home for recreational or leisure purposes (such as for a picnic or a social meeting).

So you should minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to exercise. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.

Government rules define “stay local” as staying in the village, town or part of the city where you live.

Parwich Helpers – A Thank You

As we enter a further lockdown only days into the New Year, Parwich .org has reminded us constantly of those who have volunteered to shop, collect medicines and run errands for our community, all so willingly undertaken.

As well as Lucy, Lucy, Cheryl, Rosie, Karen and Liz there are the nameless Parwich Helpers.

So with weeks more of lockdown and restrictions, thank all of you for your selflessness and generosity, even putting yourselves at risk from this wretched Covid. Huge thanks from Lynette and me and I am sure many others who will want to add their names.

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.

Festive period arrangements
A reminder that our phone lines and administrative offices are closed until Monday 4 January 2021. In the link below you can find a bin collection timetable, opening hours of our markets, and how to report stray dogs and a homeless emergency issue.

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.

Christmas arrangements
A reminder that our phone lines and administrative offices are closed from 12 noon on Thursday 24 December, re-opening on Monday 4 January 2021. Listed below you can find a bin collection timetable, opening hours of our markets, and how to report stray dogs and a homeless emergency issue.

Be Firework Safe
A reminder that it’s set to be a different sort of Bonfire Night now we are in new Covid restrictions. It’s likely to mean more activity in gardens in the absence of organised displays – so please be #fireworksafe and be a good neighbour. You can only mark Bonfire Night with people in your own household or support bubble.

The Government has issued guidance that sets out how Remembrance Sunday activities can take place in line with new COVID-19 restrictions and requirements in England.

Derbyshire Dales to move into Tier 2
PLEASE SHARE | The Derbyshire Dales moves into the COVID HIGH Alert Level (Tier 2) from 00:01 this Saturday, 31 October.

Sadly, but understandably, the organisers of the Parwich Panoramic Five have made the decision to cancel the PP5 for this year. It would have been on Tuesday 4 August but with the current Covid situation they felt it inappropriate to be inviting 100+ people in to the village unnecessarily.

Video: Please watch.

This weekend, a number of pubs across the county will re-open after almost 15 weeks of lockdown.

As much as we’d like it to be, the experience won’t be one we recognise.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply. You may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with test and trace.

We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of Coronavirus so please maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

In this short video, Chief Inspector Becky Webster and Mike Kay, Head of Licensing at Derby City Council, discuss the extra steps that licensed premises across Derbyshire have had to take.

Staff at the Holly Bush Inn in Makeney let us in for a glimpse behind the scenes, showing how the pub experience has massively changed to ensure people can visit safely – with new measures such as face shields for bar staff now in place.

Covid-19 still presents a significant and deadly threat to public health. People should continue to wash their hands regularly and maintain social distancing.

Please reconsider your plans if you arrive somewhere and establish that distancing isn’t achievable.

Be aware of how excess drinking and violent behaviour may impact the emergency services at this time.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

We want everyone to have a good time, but please do so safely, responsibly, and with respect for the public health measures in place.

As businesses such as pubs and restaurants open their doors to the public from Saturday 4 July, we are offering advice to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply and you may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with track and trace.
We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of coronavirus so maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

We anticipate that the city, and towns across the county, will be busy when establishments re-open for the first time so if you need to book a taxi, make sure you do so well in advance.

The advice is that you should avoid using public transport where possible but if you do need to use a train or bus, remember that face coverings must be worn.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

Owners of on-licences premises will need to have the appropriate risk assessments and plans in place to ensure both staff and customer safety. Owners should seek advice from their local environmental health officers and licensing teams for further advice if required.

Inspector Emma Marshall said: “It’s great for the local economy that the pubs and restaurants can re-open, however people visiting need to be aware that their evening out is likely to be very different from previous nights out in the towns and cities.

“People will need to be patient as queues are likely to be longer than expected and respect the rights of other to socially distance while everyone takes the opportunity to enjoy themselves. We will be supporting our colleagues in environmental health to identify breaches and take appropriate action where necessary.”

Councillor Jonathan Smale, Cabinet Member for Communities, Neighbourhoods and Streetpride, said: “Derby has been awarded Purple Flag status as a safe and welcoming place to come and enjoy a night out for the past six years. Coronavirus isn’t going to change that. We’re working really hard with our great venues to ensure that it’s going to be just as safe to come into Derby and enjoy a really good night out whilst following the necessary guidelines to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

“Things are obviously going to be different and so we’re asking people to be respectful, patient and work with us to make sure we can continue to enjoy a safe night out.”

All of the District Council’s political groups have signed up to a joint statement calling on central government to ensure that the needs of local communities are fully considered as coronavirus lockdown eases.

The statement – issued by the leaders of the Conservative, Green, Labour and Liberal Democrat groups – calls on Secretary of State Robert Jenrick to review all strategies and regulations “to make sure that our communities are protected from uncontrolled excess visitor numbers that could contribute to a second wave of the virus”.

The District Council’s 10 public toilets will reopen from 22 June on a restricted-hours trial basis between the hours of 11am and 3pm, ensuring the facilities can be operated and cleaned safely during the continuing coronavirus crisis. During this time they will be cleaned by council staff on three occasions and the situation will be reviewed after a two-week trial.

Bakewell stallmarket will also reopen on 22 June, with a maximum of 90 stalls and a new social distancing configuration including a one-way configuration for shoppers. The market’s opening hours will be reduced from 9.30am to 2pm while the coronavirus crisis continues.

Emergency Committee to discuss markets and public toilets

The possible reopening of public toilets and the popular Bakewell stall market will be discussed by Derbyshire Dales District Council on 11 June.

The Emergency Committee “virtual” meeting will be broadcast live on the District Council’s YouTube channel.

The Prime Minister announced at the weekend that outdoor markets can reopen in an easing of Government coronavirus lockdown measures.

At the 11 June meeting, the Council, which is currently consulting with licensed stallholders, will present an amended market layout that takes into account coronavirus social distancing requirements.

Also on the agenda is an update on the 11 public toilets operated by the Council, which, during the lockdown to date, have remained closed. Risk assessments have been carried out and officers have made it clear that the facilities cannot be reopened until the safety of users and its own cleaning staff can be assured.

Public participation at meetings is currently suspended and members of the public are asked to read the reports first – available online from 4 June at – before submitting any questions.

After that date, questions can be submitted to the meeting no later than 12 noon on 10 June by email to, by post to Democratic Services, Derbyshire Dales District Council, Town Hall, Matlock DE4 3NN or by phone during working hours to 01629 761300.

The Leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council is asking would-be visitors to think twice before making a trip to one of the most beautiful regions in England.

The relaxation by the Government of coronavirus travel guidelines means many people who live both inside and outside the area may be contemplating a trip to the Dales’ visitor hotspots.

But the Council’s Leader Councillor Garry Purdy said: “While I totally understand the temptation to seek some respite from the constraints placed on all of us by the coronavirus crisis, my appeal to anyone considering a trip is not to focus so much on what you can now do but rather what you should do.

“Visiting the Dales right now will undoubtedly create tensions in our communities as well as placing pressure on our roads and emergency services, and, as a former police officer myself, I have a massive amount of sympathy for the policing job now facing the force.

“I am fortunate to represent an area of the Dales that includes Matlock Bath, which is a magnet for tourists at this time of year, but I am asking visitors to respect and protect the residents of Matlock Bath and all of the district’s many honeypot villages by staying away for now.

“We will welcome you back with open arms when this virus is properly under control – our leisure and tourism businesses, most of which continue to be closed, need your support in the long term. But, for now, please don’t put our already limited local services under unnecessary pressure.”

Hartington Cheese

Due to the lock down caused by the Corona Virus and the closure of Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, Shops, Food Fairs, Hartington Creamery based at Pikehall has lost over 80% of its sales. Many locals bought our cheese from Hartington Cheese Shop, which has  temporarily closed. We wish therefore, to make as many previous customers (and potential new customers) aware that we are as a food business still operating and our cheese can be bought locally at Tissington Butchers, or on-line through our website.
Any enquiries please ring 390308

The foodbank collections on a Friday from the bus shelter has been cancelled until further notice. Many thanks to those who donated for your support and generosity. Parwich donated a total of 21 bags of groceries over a 3 week period (7 + 11 + 3) which will have been a great help to those in need of assistance.

You can still donate to the foodbank via various collection points in Ashbourne. These are at M&S, Sainsbury’s & Co-Op. Thank you. L.B.

Saskia’s Good News Stories

No ‘good news’ stories? Well, I certainly have one: whilst clearing out one of my storage units in the pantry (a once-in-a-lifetime-activity for me), I came across a small tin of mushy peas, use-by date: March 2003. I don’t like mushy peas. Needless to say the contents were flushed down the toilet … but I’m really pleased with the extra space in my unit, thanks to Covid19.

Now a more serious good-news story: I like this invisible benefit of less air pollution as a result of Covid19, clear(er?) skies, less traffic, birdsong is more obvious. I also keep wondering if the village can continue with some of the ‘silver linings’ of Covid19, e.g. the positive joint activities, like the Lester Lowe orders, that save numerous individual car journeys (= air pollution). I also like the idea of a village collection point for (small and light) parcels once life is back to normal. I know it’s been discussed in the past, but it would save the numerous delivery vans trundling through the village. I myself had 2 (small and light) parcels delivered over the past few days, one by the postie (fine – no problem), the other one by a separate delivery van. I would have been more than happy to collect it from a collection point in the village, thereby avoiding the delivery van having to drive up to my house. Have you had some similar thoughts and ideas as a result of the Covid19 lockdown?

And lastly another good news story: I’m delighted to hear that a certain DT is supporting trials to cure Covid19 patients by zapping people with a good dose of UV light and rinsing their inners with disinfectant. I’ve already been out in the sun (a lot), so that’s fine for the UV, and have a bit of Dettol left that I can use for my inners. (Please don’t try this at home).

DDDC digital exercises


Targeting exercise during the coronavirus lockdown

Exercise videos targeting every age group and fitness level are being posted online daily by Derbyshire Dales District Council’s sports development team.

There are family videos too where children can join mums and dads to do simple exercises to encourage family activities together.

The videos can be watched on the sports development team’s Facebook page at and on their YouTube channel at

A District Council spokesperson said: “Exercise and wellbeing are so important during the coronavirus lockdown and we’ve recorded a range of short 10 minute videos focusing on different parts of the body such as legs, upper body, abdominals and waist.

“We also have workouts suitable for those new to exercise, some chair-based workouts and strength and balance exercises suitable for older adults.

“In the coming days and weeks we will also be adding stretch and relax routines and exercises at your desk.”

Staff members also go live each week with a strength and conditioning class and a total body workout

It has been brought to our attention that many of our most vulnerable residents A088AD78-FF63-4AF1-889C-9D70151E2792may be missing out on essential support because they haven’t responded to a recent NHS letter, delivered to them as they are classed as being clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

Unfortunately, as a district council, we have no way of knowing who these residents are. Worse, some are likely to be difficult to reach via our usual communications channels. It would be much appreciated therefore if you could spread the word in your communities.

We have today launched a campaign urging family and friends to register for support on behalf of people who have received the NHS letter – anyone can do this online at

We’re also again encouraging anyone not classed by their GP or hospital clinician as being clinically extremely vulnerable, but still needing support, to register for help via the County Council’s Community Response Unit or call 01629 535091 Monday to Friday 9amto 5pm and Saturdays 9am to 1pm.

You can share our Facebook campaign post here or re-Tweet our Twitter post here. We are also issuing this to our e-newsletter database and to local media.

Lestor Lowe Delivery Clarification

Our Parwich delivery is a collective delivery to one point in the village. This reduces social contact for everyone, including the delivery driver, and enables one delivery charge to be shared amongst us all. If you want a delivery to be made to your own house then you will need to order separately and pay the delivery charge.

We have had a really good response for the delivery so any charge for the collective delivery should be small.

Lestor Lowe Delivery is On!

There has been enough interest to justify a Lestor Lowe delivery. Please place and pay for your order with Lestor Lowe and let them know that you would like to be part of the Parwich delivery which is coming to Nethergreen Farm. When it arrives I’ll contact everyone to come and pick up individually allowing for social distancing.

It is helpful to have an idea of who is ordering and a rough idea of what they are ordering as it helps in coordinating with Lestor’s and also with splitting up any delivery charge. So if you haven’t been in touch already and you place an order it would help me if you could let me know.

Lestor Lowe’s number is 01335 342472. I think they will be closed today (Easter Monday). You may have to persevere to get hold of them as they are very busy.

Estimated delivery date Wednesday 22 April. Orders in ideally by this Friday (17th)
