Churchyard Footpath

Yesterdays high winds took its toll across the county and Parwich was no exception, a dead tree was blown down in the Church Yard, fortunately it fell in line with the brook course and did not bring down the retaining wall into the brook. But if using the footpath you would need to be careful as the branches are protruding onto the footpath.
Also another large branch has been blown down onto the footpath from the horse Chestnut tree and is on the footpath, please be careful especially in the dark

Recycle your Christmas Tree

Free Christmas tree recycling in the Dales

From 9 January Derbyshire Dales District Council will be helping local people recycle their real Christmas trees.

All residents have to do is place the tree at the edge of their property on their usual green/recycling day collection and the tree will be composted along with other garden materials.

Any tree over 5ft in length must be broken/sawn down to a manageable size, with decorations and plant pots removed.  Alternatively, trees can be taken to the nearest household waste recycling centre.

Plain Christmas cards and wrapping paper can be included in residents’ kerbside cardboard and paper recycling to be collected by the District Council’s contractor Serco.  Foil-backed and glittery cards and paper should not be included, but placed in general household waste grey bins or black sacks.

Foul Hikers

A group of six young adults walking along the limestone way left this mess of socks, band aid and rubbish on Creamery Lane this afternoon.  Wonder what organisation they were from, they appeared to have a leader with them. This is not the first time.

Fly Tipping

If anyone can shed any light on who might have been responsible for dumping a television in my field I should be delighted to hear about it!

New Year Resolution for All Dog Owners – pick up your poo!
For the third time in the past week I have picked up and binned other dogs’ faeces on the large cricket pitch when depositing my own dogs’ waste.  I do this on behalf of all other good dog owners who would hate to see another place that dogs are banned from entering just because some people can’t be bothered. Maybe a bin can be placed on the field to make it more enticing to do the right thing?
Dogs are meant to be man’s best friend, but they are regulated more than any other pet in the country! We’ve already been told we can’t use the smaller playing field because it’s for children only, (despite seeing around seven kids play on there in two years.) I’d love it if dogs had a designated play area so we can all be responsible for looking after said area. Instead, I fear, I’ll see a notice on this blog to say dogs are no longer allowed on the cricket pitch either simply because of a handful of people. We are not perfect dog owners ourselves, our dogs are not perfect, but one thing we do do is make sure we pick up their do do’s!
So please, learn to steel your stomachs for this unpleasant task and think of the greater good.
