New Qualified Decorator in Parwich

Read Full Post »

After an excellent End of Season Lunch at the Sycamore Inn, where of course we were looked after and fortified with excellent fayre, members of the Parwich Bowls Team lined up to parade the Thursday League runner-up trophy that had been presented at the recent League AGM. That the top place winner’s trophy would have been preferred is history now and we accept this with the dignity that is required of sportsmen; it’s nonetheless a considerable achievement. However the prize carries with it promotion to a higher Division and a chance to pit our skills against some new opposition in our quest to go one better next term!

A Plea – Please Slow Down

Please can I ask all drivers to slow down when rounding the bend at Dale’s Yard.This afternoon at approx. 5:30 pm, a red car heading out of Parwich in the middle of the road, came round the bend much faster than is appropriate, skidding to get back on his/her side of the road. It’s certainly not the first time: a Tate oil tanker, a big black estate car and another car, all had to take evasive action recently to avoid hitting me whilst I was ‘crawling’ round that bend. Visibility is zero and there is nowhere to escape at that point when driving towards Parwich.

Thanks.

 Kind regards, 

Saskia T

A Big Thank You!

Much to our amazement and delight, Nia and Ed have decided to donate the proceeds from this year’s Panoramic 5 to the blog. We have a numbers of costs annually covering things like web hosting, storage, domain mapping (don’t ask), add free site and more. These costs have in the last few years been covered by generous donations from the PDHS, Parwich Welfare Fund, individual village resident donations and the team themselves. With Covid knocking out the PDHS open gardens the blog’s coffers were in danger of running dry so it is with great joy we received this incredibly generous donation! We now have sufficient funds for several years and even the possibility of upgrading some of our hosting services.

The team would like to thank Nia and Ed and also all the volunteers who helped with the event and the competitors on the night who collectively have made this donation possible.

Thank you all!

A very happy and emotionally overwhelmed Blog Team 🙂

Amongst the items posted on here for sale on behalf of Geoff and Jack Allsopp is this chest. The lid of the chest is inscribed “Sampson Allsopp 1883” . Sampson was the grandfather of Geoff and Jack. Born in Newton Grange, Sampson married Jeanetta Katherine Brownlee in 1885 in Alsop, presumably taking this chest with him to start his married life. Sampson and Jeanetta had 7 children including Francis Victor who was the father of Geoff, Jack and their 5 brothers and 2 sisters. Sampson died in 1929 and Jeanetta in 1938. They are buried here in Parwich.

It would be good to think that there may be someone out there, related to the Allsopps who might be interested in acquiring this piece of family history.

I’d like to thank all those people who have stopped by 6 Chestnut Cottages to wave to Alan.

It really cheers him up

I can’t thank you all enough, please continue, as the days get warmer we are hoping he will be able to sit out and chat to passers by. This is our goal, he misses socialising like so many others.

Thank you so much it really means a lot

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

Help Needed

A lady has been in contact asking if there is anyone local who could possibly offer support for her elderly parents who live in Parwich.

Her father needs support, not necessarily physical but just to have someone there as he has fallen in the past. It could be just half an hour a day just so he can get on his stair lift and go downstairs and have a bit of quality of life. Carers have been asked but as they can’t get their equipment into their home they are not able to help. 

They are offering payment but that is something that would be discussed between them and whoever may take on the position.

If anyone knows of anyone who may be able to help please contact Lucy Burlinson on 390112 or message the Parwich helpers facebook page. 

Thank you very much 😊

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.

Carols on your doorstep?!

Carols on your doorstep !

Listening to radio 4 this afternoon I heard that some places have arranged to sing carols on their doorsteps as a community. Some have been doing this every Thursday in December but I wondered if people showed an interest we could decide on one date together? Just a few socially distanced carols on our own doorsteps  to cheer us all up. What are peoples thoughts?

Wheelchair Loan Wanted

0.5 day loan of a wheelchair?

My mother is waiting for a hip replacement and therefore limited in her mobility at this time,  I’d like to be able to take her into Chatsworth gardens to see the Christmas lights this year because she’s moving away in 2021.  Is anyone able to lend us a wheelchair for a weekday afternoon and evening (return can either be that evening or first thing the following morning)?

Thank you for considering this.

John Kirkham’s Euology

with thanks to Martin C for the recording

Read Full Post »

Thank You

Val, Simon, Phil and Rosie want to thank everyone for their support over the last few weeks, and especially on Tuesday. It was very much appreciated to have so many friends and villagers at the church to welcome the funeral cortege, with special thanks going to the Parwich Oddfellows who gave a guard of honour for John.

There is an audio recording of the eulogy given by Mick Edge which we will try and post somewhere when technology allows, for those who were unable to come into the church and hear it in person.

Donations received are to be split between Ward 216 at Royal Derby and Cancer Research UK, the total currently stands at just over £800.

Thank you again x

Hi Parwich neighbours! I’m after a big (and FREE!) piece of plywood or some sort of wood I could make a giant chalkboard sign with for a work project. As big as possible, although our clever volunteers could probably piece them together. We could meet at a mutually agreed outdoor space for a 2 metre distanced handover. I probably should have asked about this BEFORE bonfire night! 😊

Thanks, and stay safe!

Rachel Robinson

We wish to communicate to the village the sad news that our mother, Rachel Robinson, wife of Andrew Robinson and resident of Church Farm in the village from 1997 – 2012 passed away peacefully ten days ago at her home on the south coast.
Due to all the restrictions at this time, my brother and I have arranged a small family funeral at St Peters this Friday at midday. We are able to extend the invite to anyone interested to be on the village green to see in the coffin at approximately 11.45 a.m. as well as joining the family for the burial at around 12.45 p.m. 
Our family will then be around the village across Friday as the grandchildren (Grace, Noah, Molly, Woody, Isaac, Rex and Seth) and our wives (Derryn and Sally) have many happy memories that they wish to re-explore since the happy Parwich days that they remember so vividly.
Many thanks and best wishes.
Mark and Jim Robinson, Andrew and Rachel’s sons.
We are happy if you wish to pass on my email address to anyone wishing to communicate with us at this time. (307jsr@gmail.com)

We have received the following request:

Does anybody know how to find out if there are any records that would show past cricket matches played in Parwich? It’s for a friend of mine, Wayne Ward, his Great-Grandad’s name was Arthur Smith, he had some cricket playing brothers (Les and Lawrence) and his Dad (Charlie Smith) and one or possibly both of his uncles (George Smith and William/Bill Smith) were cricketers too. He is trying to find out if any written records might exist. He has a 1910s or 20s photo which shows his Great Grandad’s Dad and Grandad (team manager), but other than knowing that Arthur Smith and his brothers were cricketing well into the 1940s and probably beyond, he doesn’t know much else! Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you lucy B

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.
