As mentioned at our recent talk, Parwich and District  Horticultural Society plan to only sell plants grown in peat-free compost from 2022. That means that any plants you buy at Open Gardens next year will not have been grown using compost containing peat. The extraction of peat for use in the horticultural industry is destroying our low-land bogs, releasing Carbon dioxide into the atmosphere  and contributing to climate change.
If you plan to donate plants or seedlings for sale please could you ensure that you use peat-free compost. This is widely available but if you have any difficulties please contact Sue H (334 ) and we will be happy to receive plant divisions to pot up for you.
We hope that you will support us in this endeavor, especially as it would mean beating the Government’s deadline of 2024, when bags of compost that contain peat will no longer be for sale.

What’s Happening to the Blog?

Regular visitors to the blog may have noticed some erratic behaviour  of the site in recent weeks, most noticeably the disappearance of some or all of the right hand sidebar of links and local info. This is due to recent upgrades in the WordPress system we use to maintain and publish the site.

The overall look, feel and style of the website is defined by what WordPress terms a Theme. This includes things like the colour scheme, layout, menus and style elements. The Theme we have been using since the blog was first created is now old and no longer supported by the latest version of the WordPress editor. This means there are elements of our site we can no longer reliably edit and even some , as we are seeing, that are no longer displayed correctly, if at all.

We are currently working on moving the blog to a new Theme which will involve rebuilding some portions where we have lost material. We are hoping to publish some alternative designs shortly to canvas opinion on preferences and also collect any suggestions on blog content. In the mean time please bear with us if the blog seems to be misbehaving!

Memories of Parwich

We have received this lovely email from Anne F recalling happy Parwich days:

I discovered your website whilst thinking about my parents who met during WW2 at Parwich hospital !! My mother was a nurse and my father was convalescing and many wonderful and lasting friendships were made during that time. Parwich has always had a very special place in our hearts and I grew up visiting the village and Parwich Hill many times and hearing many stories which we continue to recall to this day. Mum died last year age 98yrs and we have been thinking about how we could perhaps donate something towards the village. We brought Mum for her last visit only several years ago and drove her up the back lane that winds behind the hill and parked by the stile that accesses the footpath across the fields and to the top of the hill. Many memories !

We don’t have a huge contribution and wondered whether we could donate something towards your planting in Pump Hill ? Mum and Dad loved Parwich and spent their lives walking and enjoying the countryside. It would be lovely to contribute something in their memory.Perhaps there may be room for some more woodland flowers ?

Increase in dog mess – AGAIN

I’ve yet again had to pick up dog mess on Parsons Croft and a neighbour has also had to pick up someone elses dog poo this morning too. The school are regularly using this field and so are small children and this just isn’t acceptable. The dog mess is from a large dog and it isn’t a small amount!

We will all be keeping an eye out and if anyone is spotted leaving dog mess they will immediately be reported for a possible fine.

If you are using Parsons Croft for dogs, which like many I do too, then be responsible take your dog to the bottom of the field to do its business away from where the kids play and PICK IT UP! Don’t just let them run around and don’t watch them as that’s when it happens! We are watching you.

So the moral is don’t be a moron and face a big fine, bag and bin it and everything will be fine.
