PDHS – Visit to Thornbridge Hall Gardens.

We are planning to visit Thornbridge Hall Gardens on 28 July. Entry is free to RHS members ( on production of current membership card) or £7.00 to non RHS members, meet in the car park at Thornbridge Hall at 1.30pm. As the venue is quite close and coach travel is a little complicated we are lift-sharing.
Please let me know if you would like to join us and also whether you are prepared to drive and offer lifts to others (tel 561 or email glynisdrummond@gmail.com) I will then coordinate the lift share.

Plants for Sale

Plants will again be for sale outside Rookery House next week onwards.

Sales will be in aid of Parwich and District  Horticultural  Society to help replenish funds. 

Open Gardens would normally be our main fund raiser and this is the second year that we are unable to hold this event. Aswell as subsidising trips and speakers for members, PDHS is usually able to make generous donations to other village groups. By  purchasing or donating plants to sell you can help us continue to do this.

Look out for vegetable and flower seedlings alongside unusual perennials. Hand sanitiser will be available next to a collection jar.

Many thanks

It is with great regret that we will have to cancel Open Gardens this year. Covid restrictions have created too many complications for our small committee to overcome alongside a smaller number of gardens able to open. This means that there will be no donations available for village groups again this year.

However, we are hoping to hold a casual evening event in July where we can open gardens for folks from the village. 

Definite plans (Boris permitting!) include the Produce Show on September 12th, a talk in October and the Bob Matthews Quiz on November 20th in the Legion. Looking forward to seeing you all then. 

Next year is the 70th anniversary of the Society and with your help we hope to have a bumper year!

New Community Grant

We have received the following from DCC which may be of interest to a number of groups in the village:

We’ve launched our Action Grants scheme and groups, clubs, local charities and other non-profit organisations working in communities across the county can download the online application pack.

Our leader, Councillor Barry Lewis, said:

“Over the next two years there will be 2,000 grants of up to £500 on offer to help groups fund projects and events which will benefit their local communities.

“Whether it is to organise a village fete, pay for a youth club activity or to help promote exercise and sport, we’re inviting people who are active in their community to apply.

“Just a little financial help can make all the difference between being able to provide a much-needed local activity or not. If we can help make it happen then it could create a lasting legacy of enjoyment and participation across in communities across Derbyshire.”

 

The themes of the grants are:

Youth activity
Community safety
Community activity
Physical activity and sport
If a group’s planned project is based on any of those themes, the online application pack will let organisers know what they can and can’t apply for.

Decisions on grant applications will be made after regular application round deadlines.

The first deadline is 30 June 2018, so groups hoping to get funding for schemes in the school summer holidays are advised to apply before that date.

We’re also inviting applications for a limited number of medium grants of up to £5,000 and larger grants of up to £10,000 for projects which can have clear local support and will provide a lasting benefit for a Derbyshire community.

The full criteria for these grants is also in the application pack.

Applications for medium and larger grants will be considered annually, with the first deadline also 30 June 2018.

The Action Grants scheme will run until 31 May 2020.

Due to the impending weather we will have to cancel Friday football this week. I think it would be more like ice skating
Thanks

PDHS Visit to Two Great Shropshire Gardens
Weds 14 June 2017
Coach leaves Parwich 8.45am
Returns 6.00pm (approx)

Hodnet Hall Gardens

Over 60 acres of brilliantly coloured flowers, magnificent forest trees, sweeping lawns and a chain of ornamental pools which run tranquilly along the cultivated garden valley to provide a natural habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. No matter what the season, visitors will always find something fresh and interesting to ensure an enjoyable day’s outing.’

Wollerton Old Hall Gardens

This garden has been designed and developed by Lesley and John Jenkins since 1984. It is set around a 16th Century Hall House and has developed into an important modern garden in the English Garden tradition with echoes of Arts and Crafts. It covers 4 acres, is intensely cultivated and depending upon plant interest. Lesley Jenkins quickly discovered that the age of the site demanded formality in the garden design and so she created three north-south and three east-west vistas.  The resulting linearity of these vistas together with the hedges, walls and paths have created a number of separate gardens, with each one having its own style and ethos. The planting style is best described as controlled exuberance with a definite emphasis upon perennials. Colour, form and scale are all important.  There is much in the garden for the plant enthusiast and the garden is bursting with design ideas.  The range of plants is very wide resulting in significant collections of clematis, salvias, phlox and roses.’

PDHS Members £25       Non members £30

The cost for this trip includes entry to both gardens, lunch at Wollerton Old Hall, and coach fare. Deposit of £5 required with booking, full payment required by 31 May. Contact Glynis Drummond 390561 to book.

Please note change of date for this trip
