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.

Moving In and Moving Out

Hello Everyone,
As most of you already know Brian and I are about to move across the village out of Blanche Meadow Farm to Lower Monsdale House ( formerly Stubley) on Creamery Lane. We hope you will welcome Marie Rippingale and Francis Boyer to the home we have loved and cherished for nearly 40 years. They are looking forward to village life and I have really sold it to them as a lovely friendly village .
Meanwhile Brian and I are finally looking forward to retirement- a bit of bowls, drinking in the pub and Legion , no gardening, until the planning permission comes through and we start on the building work!

Brian and Patti Beasley

Colin hopes that many persons will attend, if not at the church, at the British Legion thereafter in memory of Christine whose presence so many of us enjoyed over the 30 years se was in Parwich.

Congratulations to Sir Richard, who has been re-elected as our Councillor here in the Dovedale and Parwich ward of Derbyshire Dales District Council

  • Sir Richard FitzHerbert (Conservative) 424 votes
  • Sue Hodgson (Labour) 73 votes

The turn out was low, just under 44%. The Conservatives look set to retain control of the Council, though with a much reduced majority. See the District Council website for the full results.

Volunteers for CHICKS

IMG_1429

CHICKS Children’s Charity offers much-needed respite breaks to disadvantaged children aged 8-15 from around the UK.

Our Daleside Retreat in Fenny Bentley is looking for volunteers to help support the work that we do.

There are plenty of different ways in which you could get involved – maybe fundraising or hosting a coffee morning, helping with crafts at events,
manning a CHICKS stand in Ashbourne, taking our collection tins out or even helping us with the garden.

This year we have plenty of exciting events planned including Tissington Well Dressings and The Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials

You can volunteer for as much or as little time as you like – we are very flexible and do understand that it needs to fit round your existing
Commitments.

It’s a great opportunity to learn some new skills, meet new people within the community and become part of the larger CHICKS family.
If you would like to learn a bit more about volunteering for CHICKS please call Karen Robinson on 01335 350 525 or email: community@chicks.org.uk
