pub is the hub

Janet and Steve were in London this week (don’t ask Steve about his shirt) for the ‘10 Years On‘ celebrations of Pub is the Hub, an organisation promoting rural pubs initiated by HRH the Prince of Wales. They were very happy to receive recognition at these celebrations for the Sycamore’s role in the local community.

We have received the following message from Carl:

As you may or may not be aware we are currently redecorating the Legion and as part of this I would like to seek out any photos that people may have, that have been taken in the Legion over the years (inside or outside). If you would be happy to donate them or pass them to me to be to be copied, I can assure you they will be well looked after.

The plan is to display them (in a specifically designed frame and cover) in the club on a permanent basis. I do have some already showing the Mummers play in the 80s and some of the Wakes BBQs. There have been so many characters and events over the years in the Club I think it would be nice to remember them this way.

If you have any photos please feel free to call in the Club (photo’s in a marked envelope) or call in and see me at Orchard View – it would be useful to discuss the photos with you to establish who is on them and when they were taken etc.. I look forward to seeing what photos are out there!!!

The redecorating will be coming to an end at the end of this week, in time for the Fezziwigs Christmas Fayre on Sunday 9th Dec, which I hope you will be able to attend. Thank you for all your patience over the last 3 weeks whilst we have had dust sheets and paint tins everywhere.

Chairman of Parwich Royal British Legion Club

It was Saturday.  The sun was out. The ice had melted. All systems were go! Miguel & Roberto – two top Parwich cyclists – decided to pedal over to Hartington.

Having huffed and puffed their way to the village, they were sorely in need of coffee and calories! Both were bowled over by the fantastic Hartington Village Stores which has had new owners since last January.

The shop is well stocked, offering a meat/deli counter, local specialities, puddings and drinks as well as normal everyday groceries. Laura and Rob were very friendly, keeping the Parwich Cycling Team up to speed with the England/All Blacks score and providing fantastic freshly ground coffee.

The stores was built in 1836 and still retains the feel of an old fashioned grocers. Apparently it survived being blown up by a leaking gunpowder barrel which lifted the roof as high as the top of the church!

Refuelled with a fine huntsman’s pie, Miguel and Roberto found the chug back up to Parwich almost easy!

You can still get along this afternoon or tomorrow (see poster for times). For more photos (more…)

Our roving photographer took a short walk along the High Peak Trail to the Neolithic Burial Chambers up on Minninglow Hill. The low sun and clear air provided a magnificent vista as can be seen in the following photographs.
