Halloween Pumpkin Trail

Hopefully some of you have seen this and we are keen to do it in Parwich. The aim is to display Halloween items in your windows / around your gardens so we can do a hunt around the village. Once you have spotted one the child (or yourself!) is rewarded with a treat (that you have taken along with you) and then you go onto find the next one.

As its half term I was thinking if we did it from Thursday 29th October to Sunday 1st November it would give people ample of time to walk around and find them.

Any suggestions just let me know – lucywigley@googlemail.com . I can’t wait to see your spooky delights!!

Oil price Stable

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Despite sluggish oil demand; Brent Crude is up this week, passing $43 a barrel as a result of Saudi Arabia keeping its OPEC members in line by ensuring agreed production cuts are met. Delivery times between 7 and 10 working days.

Pre-Winter TIP: Over time water builds up at the bottom of the tank through condensation. To prevent this causing issues we recommend using a water scavenger which will absorb contaminated water in the tank. It is simple to use, just fix the cord to the tank and drop in the scavenger. Or if you would like to test for water you can purchase a Water Test Kit. For more information please visit The Club Store.

Rate:  £0.2450 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Broken Glass

I have discovered many small pieces of glass all along the road at the top of Creamery Lane outside Rathbourne Court. I have a suspicion that the recycling waste lorry has been leaking the glass, and I am planning to ask the Council to send a road sweeper to clear it up (we have already cleared the road, but the pieces are tiny).

If you see any glass in other parts of the village, can you please let me know, so that I can inform Derbyshire Dales.

Residents’ garden waste service questions answered

With garden waste collections now operating to schedule across the Derbyshire Dales during the continuing coronavirus pandemic, local residents are being reminded there will be a charge for the service from April next year.

More than half of all UK councils now charge residents for garden waste collections, including 39 of the 50 councils most similar to Derbyshire Dales District Council.

It will cost a discounted £35 for Dales households that subscribe to the garden waste service before the end of January 2021, generating funds to offset the increased cost of the District Council’s new waste and recycling contract, which starts next month.

The cost of the contract rises by £1-million a year after Dales residents made it clear they wanted the District Council to maintain current service levels, which are the best in Derbyshire. It means fortnightly collections of dry recycling and residual household waste continue as the new contract kicks in, together with weekly food waste collections.

A cheaper deal could have been struck by making household waste collections less frequent – but in resident surveys local people rejected this idea. Councillors voted by an overwhelming majority at a special council meeting at the end of last year for Serco to continue to deliver the waste and recycling contract for the district and also agreed to approve the new charge for collecting garden waste.

Subscriptions open from September this year and the cost will rise to £50 from February 2021 when the discount period ends. Free garden waste collections will continue for all 34,000 households across the Dales until April next year. Ahead of the new garden waste service launch, the District Council has prepared a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/gardenwasteFAQs

A District Council spokesperson said: “It’s important to stress this will be an opt-in service and charging for garden waste collections was a decision councillors took reluctantly, but we have to raise extra revenue to balance out the impact of the rising cost of the new waste and recycling contract. The reality is that we’ve had to set the garden waste charge so the waste and recycling service overall is affordable to the Council Tax payer.We appreciate residents will have many questions, including why the new contract is £1-million more expensive than the current one, which is why we have prepared the FAQs.Put simply, the market place was much more competitive when we struck the current deal eight years ago. That deal, which was exceptional value for money, simply does not exist in 2020, and this became clear during a rigorous tendering process. Vehicle prices have increased due in part to additional safety features and improved environmental standards, and staff wages have also increased significantly and are likely to continue to rise. In addition, we have specified new technologies such as 360 degree cameras and in-cab technology, which adds to the cost. At the same time, the price obtainable for recyclables has fallen substantially.”

The District Council invited all Dales residents to respond to two consultations during a waste service review period. The main survey closed in September 2018 with 2,629 responses. The spokesperson added: “Local people made it clear to us they wanted to maintain fortnightly collections of household waste and recycling, and weekly food waste collections. To keep the service at the same level in the face of rising costs, it is necessary for a charge for garden waste to offset some of the overall costs of the new service. Added to this, local government finances continue to be challenging and successive central government grant cuts mean we need more money to continue to provide the frontline services our residents expect. The level of government grant we receive will have reduced from £2.8m in 2013/14 to £1m by 2020/21. So even after making substantial savings in recent times, we have to find additional ongoing annual savings or additional income of £250,000 by 2023/24.”

Parwich Hall in 1924

We have recently been sent digital copies of photographs of Parwich Hall in 1924. At that time the Hall was owned by Major Gainsford, a colliery owner from Sheffield who bought the estate in the 1915 sale and then sold it in 1931 to the Crompton- Inglefields. A woman appears on a number of the photos and we have been told that the text says she is “Miss Ina”. Major Gainsford’s wife’ name was Edith Geraldine so it is possible that Miss Ina might have been Geraldine which was misread. Or maybe a name she was known based on Geraldine. If anyone has any information on the Gainsfords and the mysterious Miss Ina, we should love to hear it.

Parwich Wakes 2020

As you can all imagine Parwich Wakes is going to look a little different this year but we still wanted to mark the occasion before we are back with a bang in 2021. Therefore the Parwich Carnival and Recreation Committee have put together a small programme of events for the Wakes Saturday and activities for you to take part in at your leisure throughout the week. We are working closely with the Sycamore, Legion and Odd Fellows so if government rules change and as more things are confirmed we will let you know.
