The End of Friday Football

It is with regret that James and I have agreed to hang up our boots and bring the children’s Sunday Football to an end.

As most would say these things come in cycles, currently we have an age demographic of some older children who are less interested in playing football and some very young children who haven’t yet found an interest in the wonderful game! Since we changed the football from Friday to a Sunday we have only been getting 3 or 4 children each week and with COVID issues I don’t see it being truly responsible for us to start back anytime soon.

Over the 4 years that we have run the group, we have amassed lot of equipment, line marking equipment line marking paint, hurdles, slalom training poles, lots of new Sondico footballs, dribbling cones, etc, all of this equipment is for the use of villagers and village groups, especially the school (please can someone let them know).

Our fund contained a significant amount of money which has been donated to us by various community groups, we have been very grateful for all of the support you have given us over the years, your money has provided many children with hours of fun and good exercise.

We have returned the money to our donors as follows:

£100 – Horticultural Society

£100 – Parwich Independent Welfare Fund

£207.44 – Parwich United Charities

I would like to thank you for your support, James for his time and effort and most of all the children for their efforts and fun.

Hopefully one day in the future someone else will take on this challenge.

The Gruffalo Trail

There’s a new Gruffalo trail now up and ready to follow, and it’s aimed at the younger members of our lovely village.

It begins with two sheets on the park near the play equipment, then two on the Green, with the remaining two hiding in the Pump Hill Garden.

There’s a printable check sheet and also the answers below should you need them.

Happy Gruffalo spotting!

Firstly, thank you all so much for getting involved and helping to decorate our beautiful village for Easter, it’s been fantastic to see everyone’s creations whether they’ve entered the competition or not.

All the entries have been great, and it’s made Val and John’s job of judging them a real challenge. They’ve chosen their winners based on the love and effort put into creating them. The winners are:

Under 7’s: Doug and Lily

7 – 15’s: Eva Jones

15 up: Glynis D

Prizes will be delivered tomorrow!

Thank you to Val and John K for judging for us, and big thanks once again to everyone for joining in and making this very strange Easter a special one for us all.

Thanks and stay safe, Rosie

We’ve just received the following message from Saskia: I have a partly dis-assembled cardboard toy castle. Hobbycraft, 91x91x81 cm. Already skilfully (?!) coloured in by my grandkids, but has a bit of play-life left in it for bored little ones (4-5 yrs?). I’m happy to drop it off in/near the village.

Fairies at Pump Hill?

I am reminded by Lucy M’s lovely suggestion that I have been dilatory in putting this on the blog.

This is a special invitation to the youngest members of our community.

Have you seen the fairy stools at Pump Hill Wood?  There are three little seats located in places where you can sit and look around to see if you can spot a fairy. Sometimes they dance in the sunbeams, or in a gentle rain. You can also sit here and see animals in the distance, insects, small birds and different kinds of flowers. You can also close your eyes and make a wish. This magical place is changing every day as Mother Nature has taken charge.

Note to parents . Please, for the next few months, keep children on the paths. We need to ensure that what is lurking below the loose soil can thrive as it comes through.In addition, brambles are starting to poke through. In the next week or so we will have to spray the nettles, so straying into the planted areas is not a good idea. We will as a matter of course advise everyone when this happens, through the blog and with gentle reminders at the two entrances.

Lynette C

Dear Parents,


Please take a few minutes to read the attached ’12 Days of Online Safety’ which provides advice from an approved online safety consultant.

Christmas is upon us and with it often comes children asking for internet devices. 
Also, during the holiday, there is much more time to be online.


This can cause heightened safeguarding risks. 


Merry Christmas,

The Parwich School Team.

Children’s Friday football to become Sunday football???

Due to work commitments James and I are thinking of moving the Friday football to Sunday morning (9.00am – 10.00am).

Sunday works for us both and the early start time still allows everyone to make the most of the day.

It will also give us an advantage that we could play for longer in the year on the grassed area, as opposed to the hard courts.

I have discussed this idea with a number of residents at Parsons Croft who don’t see any issues. I welcome any feedback from other Parsons Croft residents and parents of the children.

Many thanks

Jason and James

This week will be our final Friday Football before we take a break for the summer holidays.

During the summer the number turning up for football drop off significantly as people go on their holidays, also James, Charles and I need to recharge our batteries.

The children should be encouraged by their parents to continue to meet up every Friday and play a game between themselves without adult supervision.

We will start back on 6th September.

Many thanks

Jason
