A small village community in Wales comes together to help bartender Jan raise a race horse. With little money and no experience, Jan convinces a motley crew of villagers to chip in their limited earnings to help raise a foal on her allotment and compete with the racing elites.

See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSOybientng 

Based on the incredible true story of Dream Alliance, Dream Horse is a classic tale of triumph against adversity, as an ordinary woman makes her wildest dream come true and their horse becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.

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.

Blue Bin only on Wednesday

The temporary suspension of garden waste collections means crews can focus on all other scheduled collections as well as catching up with recent missed household waste and recycling collections, including any excess recycling.

Some key points about collections from Monday:

👉 Some areas may see more than one waste vehicle on your street on the same day within a short period of time. Please don’t assume you have been missed (or partially missed) by the first vehicle.

👉 Catch-ups of missed collections won’t necessarily happen on your scheduled collection day. Please leave out containers for collection.

👉 Scheduled collections won’t necessarily happen at the same *time* as usual – it’s important that you present containers at the kerbside no later than 7am on your scheduled collection day (even if you are used to trucks arriving at a later time).

👉 If you have extra recycling, please make sure it is easily identifiable by leaving it in transparent or open containers (eg a box) rather than black bags, and please flatten and cut down any cardboard to fit in the 0.5 metre recycling compartment on our trucks. There’s more information on this at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/excessrecycling

Please note that the temporary suspension of food waste collections continues. Mix food waste in your household waste container. If you are on a sacks round, to help prevent animals ripping open sacks in search of food waste, you can put their usual food caddy out alongside your refuse sacks if you wish, but food inside the caddy does need to be contained within a sealed bag.

Barn/unit to let

Looking for a barn/unit to rent for a week. Large enough to get a VW crafter high roof in and work round. Need space so we can spray the body and leave to dry. We can cover area if required to prevent mess but using a spray that does not give out much mess.
Please contact Dan on 07856098515

Thanks

Beware Wasps

Just to be aware.

I just walked the dog down Kiln Lane. About halfway down there’s a tree with yellow flowers on the right.

At the moment their seems to be a fair number of wasps in the branches, hopefully just resting and not nesting.

Pump Hill Damage

Having read about the misuse of herbicide at Pump Hill I walked through there this afternoon. I was shocked at what can really only be called vandalism. Plants and shrubs which had been planted by volunteers and using money kindly donated by organisations and individuals have been wantonly damage. It is difficult to see how damage at this level can have happened by someone using herbicide on weeds and accidentally catching the occasional plant. This looks like an outright massacre. Fiona H
