Whilst we admire the beauty of the gardens on display during Open Gardens we don’t perhaps fully appreciate the effort and dedication that goes into the quest for perfection. We are indebted to David G who managed to catch this behind the scenes shot of one of our more athletic gardeners in his effort to get everything just in the correct position.

Meet the Neighbours

Please welcome Donna and Mark:

After what seems like an age we have finally made our big move to Parwich. We (Mark and Donna) moved in to Barn Cottage on Creamery Lane over the Easter Bank Holiday and whilst there is still A LOT of work to do on the house, we are settling in and are already loving life in Parwich. Thank you to everyone who has already said hello and introduced themselves whilst we have been finding our way around with our two dogs, Misty (black lab) and Tess (lurcher), we already feel very welcomed!

We decided to take the plunge and make our ‘escape to the country’ when we both found ourselves able to work from home. On the rare occasions when we have to venture to the office, I (Donna) am a digital project manager for the NHS in Leeds, and Mark is a software engineer for a small private company based out of Nottingham University delivering digital workflow solutions.

We moved from Clitheroe in Lancashire after falling in love with Parwich last year. We plumped for Barn Cottage as a project… it’s probably what you’d call ‘quirky’ and we have a long way to go with major renovations…. we plan to temporarily move out whilst we make the improvements and would love to be able to stay in the village during that time, so if anyone knows of anywhere that may be available for a six-month or so let, please let us know…  we will do our utmost to cause as little disruption for everyone but please bear with us while we get there!

Aside from home (improvement) challenges and walking the dogs, we both love motorsports, F1 and MotoGP in particular, (that’s watching not participating!). Mark has a real passion for film and TV and runs his own online review site, and I’m a keen runner and looking forward to finding new local routes to explore/get lost on!

We can’t wait to get firmly rooted in Parwich life… be sure to say hello, we look forward to meeting you all!

Meet the Neighbours

It is some time since we have said welcome from the blog to our new residents. Lockdown didn’t help. If anyone has moved in over the last couple of years or so and would to say hello to the village please get in touch. To start us off please give a warm welcome to Kirsty:

Hello

My name is Kirsty Norman and I moved into the village a few weeks ago. I am living in Brook Cottage ( not the one nearest The Sycamore, the other one, next to the footpath that goes to the churchyard) so if you are walking past and see me, I would love it if you  say “hello” 😊

I am new to Parwich but not to the area. Although a Southerner originally, I have been in Derbyshire since 1994.

Until recently, I was living in Alstonefield and prior to that, I was  in Bonsall, near Matlock.

Back in the 90’s my family and I used to have The Watts Russell Arms pub in Hopedale and The Manifold Inn at Hulme End. So if you frequented either back in the day, I may have served you a beer or made you a ham cob!

My parents and sister also live in the area, in Alstonefield and near Longnor.

Thank you to those people that I have already spoken to, you have made me feel very welcome.

Regards

Kirsty
