Ice Warning

Just a word of caution, the first icy patches of the season are starting to build in places between Bradbourne Mill and the Bentley Brook, also as go out of the village from Pits Lane.   As the forecast is for a continued cold snap, they could get quite nasty.

Super Moon

Clear skies permitting there will be a super moon on Monday 14th November 2016.

The moon will be the closest to Earth it’s been since January 1948. It will appear bigger than it has for almost 70 years. The next time the moon is closer will not be until 2034.

During the event, the moon will appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an average full moon.

Lets hope for clear skies above Parwich.

Thank you David G for this image taken at 6:04pm
