A Secret Find in a Secret Location

One space only left for a day’s volunteering on Tuesday 27 November 

The History Society has been told of an interesting find which has taken place in the parish of Parwich. At the moment the nature of the find and it’s location have not been disclosed. The Peak District National Park Authority is organising a 5 day excavation of a trench in the vicinity of the find at the end of the month and have offered 10 day spaces to the History Society / village (2 for each of the 5 days). 6 of these have already been filled at our AGM leaving 4 day spaces for other volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering for a day’s excavation you will need to be reasonably fit and healthy, able to do a full day and walk to the site carrying tools as well as have suitable footwear and clothing. If you are interested contact me on 191 by the end of Thursday 15 November. If we are oversubscribed, priority will be given to History Society members.

Parwich Welcomes Evacuee

Jo (Joshua) Potter and his wife are staying in Parwich this week.  He is a former evacuee who came here from Manchester when he was 7 in 1939. He and his younger brother were billetted with the Websters at Blanche Meadow Farm for some six years.

Catering 4 Parwich and Parwich Local History Society hosted a tea party this afternoon for people who attended Parwich School during WW2 to meet them and share memories.  Despite several people being away the fifteen able to come had a very enjoyable time.

WW2 Child evacuee staying in Parwich (again)

Were you a child living in the Parwich area during WW2 and can you remember a child evacuee (?from M/C) called Joshua (Joe) Potter who was staying with Mr Kramer & Mrs Annie Webster and their sons Ronnie & Stanley at Blanche Meadow Farm from 1939-1944? Mr Potter would have been approx. 7-12 yrs old during his years in Parwich.  Mr Potter sang in the choir at St. Peter’s Church. 

Mr Joshua Potter and his wife Linda, are coming to stay in Croft Cottage for the week of 18-25 August. Mr Potter would be interested to meet up with anyone who may remember him.

I have already received some information from a few local residents, but please let me know if you know of anyone who may like to meet Mr and Mrs Potter.
