Thank You from Shaun E and Family

On behalf of the family I would like to thank each and every one of you who came to stand outside church on Friday for Alison’s funeral and to those who stood outside in Ballidon and along the roadside whilst we made our way into Parwich.
I would also like to thank you all for your kind donations which will be going to Cancer Research Uk.
We are sorry you couldn’t join us in church but here is Alison’s eulogy which Carl wrote and read for her. 
Thanks again, Shaun and family. 

Alison asked me some time ago if I would read out some words for her when this day came. She never got round to finishing what she wanted me to read but did leave instruction that I was to say something and I had to make it funny. So no pressure then…

Grey Bin Wednesday

…and Food Caddy

Read Full Post »

Hello,

I’m arranging a collection of goodies to be taken in for the amazing staff team at Royal Derby Hospital, as a small token of appreciation for all they are doing.

Having spoken with one of the ICU team I understand that handcreams and lip balms would be very much appreciated, as would biscuits for tea breaks etc.

If anyone would like to get involved there are a couple of ways you can help:

I will arrange to leave a box at the top of our drive (The Orchards) to accept donations of hand creams, lip balms etc.

Alternatively, if it’s easier to donate a monetary amount I will gladly collect it all together and place an online order for some supplies at the end of this week. You’d be welcome to either pop cash in an envelope into our letterbox or contact me to arrange a bank transfer if easier.

I’m hoping to have enough of a collection ready to drop over early next week.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any queries at all.

Many thanks

Rosie (07712 481 197 or Parwich 458)

Oil Price Up and Up

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

Oil prices continue to rise as increased demand from China and India sees them buying more oil than the previous month. Brent Crude is now over $52 a barrel. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days but are subject to weather and supply conditions.

Beat the January rush – Orders this weekend are most likely to be delivered after Christmas with the 10 working day deliveries being made by the 7th January, so please do order early if you require oil in January. As always in the winter months, supply is subject to weather and supply conditions. We hope there will not be any Brexit disruption but most of our fuel is imported so please order early.

However, if you are already very low or have run out, this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.3595 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Oil Price Up and Up

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

Oil prices rise as the market is full of vaccine optimism, notably out of the UK, which started mass vaccinations on Tuesday. Brent Crude is up at $50 a barrel. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days but are subject to weather and supply conditions.

Be sure you order early – Suppliers delivery slots are now filling up as we count down to Christmas, the New Year and Brexit.

We hope there will not be any Brexit disruption but most of our fuel is imported so please order early.

However, if you are already very low or have run out though, this group order will not be suitable..

Oil price Pushing Up

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

Brent Crude passes $49 a barrel today on news that OPEC+ have agreed to maintain the majority of the current production cuts from January 2021. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days but are subject to weather and supply conditions.

Be sure you order early. Suppliers delivery slots are now filling up as we count down to Christmas.

Oil price Pushing Up

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

Continued developments in the Covid-19 vaccine and expectations that OPEC+ will roll over the current cuts for a further three months from January 2021, have pushed Brent Crude past $48 a barrel this week, up $10 from a month ago. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days.

Have you checked your oil levels? With Christmas only 4 weeks away and oil prices now rising, we recommend doing a visual check of your oil tank. Prices in December are often much higher than normal due to increased demand for deliveries before Christmas. If you are already very low or have run out though, this group order will not be suitable.

Rate:  £0.2880 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Help the Elves!

With the news today we are going in tier 3 I’m really keen to try and create just a little bit of Christmas magic in Parwich. I’m hoping to create an elf trail around the village but I need your help! My plan is to create a map and it will show where the elves are hiding in the village. Ideally I would love some households in Parwich to draw and hide an elf in their garden or window displaying a letter, which when all put together spell out a Christmas word. The maps could be collected from the shop and then returned with the answer to claim a little treat.

If you would be interested in drawing, printing or creating an elf please let me know and I can start planning the route and let you know what letter you will be.

Thanks a million in advance – Lucy M lucywigley@googlemail.com, 390737 or Facebook messenger me

Oil price Going Up

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

Oil prices continue to edge up with further news that early results for Covid-19 vaccines are proving very successful, and with pharmaceuticals filing for emergency authorisation for their vaccines. Brent Crude passes $44 a barrel this week. Delivery times are currently between 7 and 10 working days.

Tip: Beat the Christmas rush – With Christmas only 5 weeks away and oil prices rising, now would be a very good time to order your heating oil if you have not already done so. Prices in December are often much higher than normal due to increased demand for deliveries before Christmas.
