Give a Little Wave

My father, Alan Oldfield, has been ill for several months now, he used to be very active in the village. Id like to cheer his day by asking for people to wave if they pass by.

If you take a walk round Parwich and pass by Chestnut Cottages , give a wave at number 6 to the gentlemen sitting by the window. This is Alan Oldfield, he will be 90 in August and would love to see you wave to say hello. He spends most days looking out the window watching the world go by so please say ‘Hi’ with a wave. It will cheer him up no end.

Thank you , from Janette H his daughter

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.

We’ve received a number of reports concerning dog fouling around the village. There are numerous signs and bins around the village like this one-

Whilst recognising that the majority of dog owners in the village do clean up after their dogs it is sadly not everyone. Please remember to bag it and bin it.
Also there seem to be a number of dogs allowed to wander free around the village. Please accompany your dog at all times otherwise there is a risk of it fouling around the streets and also getting into fields with stock. During this lockdown there are very few visitors in the village so we can’t push the blame onto outsiders.

Particular “hot” spots at the moment appear to be:
Area around the school;
The footpath beside Smithy Close;
Parsons Croft.

Thank you on behalf of all Parwich residents.

Hello,

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)

Lifts for Vaccinations

If anyone is absolutely stuck for a lift to receive their immunisation against Covid 19,  several First Responders are becoming available to help out once they have themselves been vaccinated. We would wear masks and possibly at least be preferable to a taxi or bus.
As we are already volunteering at various sites to help with the rollout we may not be free. However please call Sue H  on 334 if you do need transport to and from your vaccine and we will do our best.

Wasp Nest

Thanks to Carl W for this warning

Please be aware there is a wasp nest in a hole in the ground approximately one third of the way up the sledging field/Cowes Close. 

It’s on the right hand side quite close to the footpath.

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 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.”

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 www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable

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 atwww.derbyshire.gov.uk/gethelp 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.

Meat and Vegetables

We are indebted to Malcolm H for passing this on to us –

I bought meat from Andrew Holmes Butchers in Tissington yesterday and he told me he is able to take telephone orders.
He also has an arrangement with Fresh Choice vegetables of Ashbourne in that they will deliver telephone orders to him and keep them in their cold room so that you can collect both veg and meat orders at once. A great help as it obviously avoids the necessity to travel into Ashbourne

As people start to social distance and in, some cases completely isolate, I’ve put together a collection of books and DVDs which anyone is welcome to take. They are placed on a small bookcase outside my home, 8 Sycamore Cottages.
Whilst I am well and have been social distancing for over a week now, I have spritzed the items with alcohol spray just to make sure. Fellow villagers are also welcome to take, swap and leave their own books and DVDs.
My favourite genres are a bit dark so you’ll find mysteries and gothic horror mostly with a few biographies, memoirs, historical fiction and lighter topics. DVDs include musicals and Downton Abbey.
It would be nice if any has spare children’s books to leave them for other villagers who are homeschooling. A spritz of spray on all donations would also be appreciated but I’ll check throughout the weekend too as it’s meant to be bright and clear so I’ll keep it out until Sunday evening.
In a couple of weeks, I’ll repeat the exercise.
Stay well, stay strong and look after each other.

Training for All

Just a quick reminder about the training session at the Memorial Hall. It is open to everybody and we hope that lots of people will pop along for the session. It should last about an hour and a half, finishing with free refreshments.

So whether you feel that your life saving skills are rusty or if you think that you would have no idea what to do in the case of a heart attack please come and hear John Whittaker from East Midlands Ambulance Service guide us all through what you should do.
We have decided to hold a raffle in aid of the Air Ambulance during the evening. Parwich First Responders look forward to seeing you on Thursday at 7.30. Sue H

We have received the following information on bird flu form the Derbyshire Association of Local Councils via our Parish Council.

Last winter the UK experienced several outbreaks of avian influenza – better known as bird flu – and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is asking for help to share information in local communities. This highly contagious disease affects birds including chickens, ducks and geese, and can be fatal to them, devastating farmers’ livelihoods. It is just as much of a risk to those with a few chickens in a back garden as to commercial farmers and anyone who keeps chickens, ducks or geese. Defra is asking local councils to share their advice on bird flu in their respective communities, for example on noticeboards using their poster, through social media or in newsletters.

Please help spread the word
