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.

100 Mile Ride

Hello, as I’m sure you know I’m quite a cycling addict, yes, a proper MAMIL (Middle Aged Man in Lycra). One of the biggest events for cyclists in this country is the Prudential Ride London 100, which is, yes you guessed it, a 100 mile ride around London and Surrey; well I’ve entered this event, the cyclists version of doing a marathon……

Now the ask – recently a very dear friend of mine has passed away due to Motor Neurone Disease.   I want to do something; so I’m doing the above ride on behalf of the MND Association.  I hope to raise loads of funds to help with their work in helping patients, and research into finding a cure for this horrid disease.
So a big please – please be generous, help me to help this worthy cause.

Finally, I am standing all my costs, and have started the ball rolling with £100 donation myself.  If you would like to make a donation, my daughter and I have set up a Just Giving page.
Big love to you all, thanks for reading this.
Robert aka Buntingo
