Unfortunately during the night, a window pane was broken at both The Old Post Office and also the school. The sad fact is that it was done deliberately.
If anyone else has suffered the same thing, can you let either of us know, myself or Fiona -Headteacher at the school.
Also if anyone noticed any suspicious activity, please do let us know as it will help the police enquiries.
Thank you,
Alex & Fiona

And they’re off…..


You can tell that it’s the start of the bowls season because there are agonised brass monkeys all over the place. However, crown green bowlers are made of strong stuff and as we all know spring is just around the corner or is it at the end of the M1.

Tuesday League.

Away – Chatsworth – 11 April.

The winter as you know has been long and very wet and it was still doing it’s bit at Chatsworth. The chance to send a few practice woods down was not possible until Monday night. The Green at Parsons Croft was saturated as was Chatsworth’s. As you walked on the green the water welled up over your shoes and it was really cold. The games were shared two each with Pat and John B first on wishing they had stayed at home and watched the 500th repeat of the Wizard of Oz. They lost 7 – 21. Another married pair Sue and Tony A showed how it should be done and won 21 – 12. They must have a crown green in their loft to practice on. Captain Dawn joined this year by a new Club member, Frances, soon had us back on course on won at a canter 21 – 9. Final game Edith and Rick. You would put your house on them to win, however the weather or something they ate put the mockers on them and they lost 13 – 21. Final score Chatsworth 63, Parwich 62. Not a bad result in the scheme of things. Hopefully things can only get better as they say.

Next Match – Home – Bradwell – 17 March – 6.00pm.

Thursday Friendly League.

Home – Baslow – 12 April – 1.45pm

This league you may remember has 3 doubles games up to 21, and 6 singles games up to 15. I hope I am not tempting fate by saying the doubles pairs did us proud. Freezing cold soaking wet, boy did they play well. Dennis E and Audrey B led the way winning 21 – 8. This matched the unlucky Sue A and Liz H who played Baslow’s best pair, losing 8 -21. Clara E and Harry B put matters right by storming in 21 – 17. Parwich 50, Baslow 46.

We managed to win 4 of the 6 singles with Keith B winning 15 – 0. Other notable results were Tony A carrying on his Tuesday form winning 15 – 2. Edith sorted herself out from Tuesday and won 15 – 5. Our new member Frances, a really good acquisition on the transfer market romped home 15 – 6. Parwich 76, Baslow 43. Overall score Parwich 126, Baslow 92. What a start.

Next Match – Away – Bradwell – 19 April – 1.45pm.

We have three new members this year. Frances who has played before and the brown paper envelope handed over before the season started was worth every penny. Joy and Stuart have joined us to learn the game and of course to enjoy the good atmosphere you get on a bowls green. You too dear reader can also get this by being members. All you need is a pair of flat soled shoes, it is as easy as that!
