Meet the Neighbours

Please welcome Donna and Mark:

After what seems like an age we have finally made our big move to Parwich. We (Mark and Donna) moved in to Barn Cottage on Creamery Lane over the Easter Bank Holiday and whilst there is still A LOT of work to do on the house, we are settling in and are already loving life in Parwich. Thank you to everyone who has already said hello and introduced themselves whilst we have been finding our way around with our two dogs, Misty (black lab) and Tess (lurcher), we already feel very welcomed!

We decided to take the plunge and make our ‘escape to the country’ when we both found ourselves able to work from home. On the rare occasions when we have to venture to the office, I (Donna) am a digital project manager for the NHS in Leeds, and Mark is a software engineer for a small private company based out of Nottingham University delivering digital workflow solutions.

We moved from Clitheroe in Lancashire after falling in love with Parwich last year. We plumped for Barn Cottage as a project… it’s probably what you’d call ‘quirky’ and we have a long way to go with major renovations…. we plan to temporarily move out whilst we make the improvements and would love to be able to stay in the village during that time, so if anyone knows of anywhere that may be available for a six-month or so let, please let us know…  we will do our utmost to cause as little disruption for everyone but please bear with us while we get there!

Aside from home (improvement) challenges and walking the dogs, we both love motorsports, F1 and MotoGP in particular, (that’s watching not participating!). Mark has a real passion for film and TV and runs his own online review site, and I’m a keen runner and looking forward to finding new local routes to explore/get lost on!

We can’t wait to get firmly rooted in Parwich life… be sure to say hello, we look forward to meeting you all!

Meet the Neighbours

It is some time since we have said welcome from the blog to our new residents. Lockdown didn’t help. If anyone has moved in over the last couple of years or so and would to say hello to the village please get in touch. To start us off please give a warm welcome to Kirsty:

Hello

My name is Kirsty Norman and I moved into the village a few weeks ago. I am living in Brook Cottage ( not the one nearest The Sycamore, the other one, next to the footpath that goes to the churchyard) so if you are walking past and see me, I would love it if you  say “hello” 😊

I am new to Parwich but not to the area. Although a Southerner originally, I have been in Derbyshire since 1994.

Until recently, I was living in Alstonefield and prior to that, I was  in Bonsall, near Matlock.

Back in the 90’s my family and I used to have The Watts Russell Arms pub in Hopedale and The Manifold Inn at Hulme End. So if you frequented either back in the day, I may have served you a beer or made you a ham cob!

My parents and sister also live in the area, in Alstonefield and near Longnor.

Thank you to those people that I have already spoken to, you have made me feel very welcome.

Regards

Kirsty

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 🙂

Congratulations!

To Willie Bunting of Alsop who is 100 years old today.

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.

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.
