October Film DREAM HORSE

A small village community in Wales comes together to help bartender Jan raise a race horse. With little money and no experience, Jan convinces a motley crew of villagers to chip in their limited earnings to help raise a foal on her allotment and compete with the racing elites.

See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSOybientng 

Based on the incredible true story of Dream Alliance, Dream Horse is a classic tale of triumph against adversity, as an ordinary woman makes her wildest dream come true and their horse becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.

Oil Price Up

Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Brent Crude hits a two-month high passing $77 a barrel today, as oil inventories dwindle further and 20% of the Gulf of Mexico production is still off line due to Storm Ida.

Delivery times 7 to 12 days, but due to driver shortages in some areas these times are now an estimated delivery time, so please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered. If you are low on heating oil this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Supply chain delays are growing! We are already seeing a number of issues developing in the industry causing delays on deliveries, including driver shortages, a sharp increase in demand for oil, as well as production cuts. Delivery timelines are now heading up to 14 working days, so please be sure to order earlier than usual to ensure you don’t run out before a delivery can get to you.
Our recommendation to our members is now to order when you have 5+ weeks worth of oil left.

Rate:  £0.4995 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

The final curtain descends upon the crown green bowling season; a season that for so long gave the Parwich Team aspirations of glory. As the summer blazed on I had certainly considered that the Thursday League trophy was to have our name on it.We’ve finished second, and in doing so have also secured promotion to the higher division, which after reflection is an achievement of note though the anguish will take time to fade. We floundered in our last Thursday match of the season at Matlock Bath, in itself a particularly difficult arena on which to complete our campaign: a remarkably small, tight and viciously contoured green that without a doubt offers considerable home advantage and we ended the day well-beaten by a remarkably friendly and welcoming team, going down by 134 points to 119. I believe we all knew then that it was not going to be enough, especially as rivals Bradwell triumphed with a thumping 143 to 83 win that same day, but we were left with nerves hanging until this weekend to see how they had got on in one of their two games in hand. Another convincing win put them only a whisker behind us and, as I understand, the award of average points per game for their other unfulfilled fixture means that Bradwell will take the title. So it’s hats off in our sincere congratulations to the Bradwell Team, you kept us on our toes all summer and provided great excitement. However before we consign our woods to understairs cupboards for the long winter months there is one more Tuesday fixture to fulfill in the other challenge, when this week we travel to – and yes, you’ve guessed it – Bradwell! A chance to let them know we’re still a very good outfit and to preserve one’s honour. So that’s it. Our much-cherished green is undergoing its winter maintenance, the ground has been smartened by the members and that leaves the only remaining business to be the end of season lunch at The Sycamore, whom I know will do us proud as always. A huge thanks to all the Team for making it such a compelling season and to all who have followed via these reports and have wished us well along the way. I for one will look forward with much anticipation and with not just a little pride to the chance of being able to go one better next time out.

Increase in dog mess – AGAIN

I’ve yet again had to pick up dog mess on Parsons Croft and a neighbour has also had to pick up someone elses dog poo this morning too. The school are regularly using this field and so are small children and this just isn’t acceptable. The dog mess is from a large dog and it isn’t a small amount!

We will all be keeping an eye out and if anyone is spotted leaving dog mess they will immediately be reported for a possible fine.

If you are using Parsons Croft for dogs, which like many I do too, then be responsible take your dog to the bottom of the field to do its business away from where the kids play and PICK IT UP! Don’t just let them run around and don’t watch them as that’s when it happens! We are watching you.

So the moral is don’t be a moron and face a big fine, bag and bin it and everything will be fine.

Have Your Say on DDDC Services

Have your say on council services

Derbyshire Dales District Council is undertaking a Resident Survey this month, asking for views on the services it delivers and how local people feel about the area. The information will help the District Council to improve the policies and services it delivers while finding out what matters most to local people. 

A randomly selected group of residents are receiving a copy of the survey through the post, which they can complete online if they wish. Members of the District Council’s online panel of residents will also receive a link to complete the survey.

Any resident can also complete the survey now at https://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/residentsurvey21

A District Council spokesperson said: “This year’s survey has two new features. First, residents will be asked to record their views and the reasons for them, as well as selecting a graded response. Second, we are requesting postcodes information to assist us in identifying the areas where we need to focus our actions and to follow up on any points raised.”

For more information about the survey contact Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Policy Officer on 01629 761240 during office hours [Tuesday to Thursday].

The spokesperson added: “The Derbyshire Dales Online Panel is one of the ways in which we listen to residents and people who work in the Dales. Around 950 people have already joined the Panel and we’d love to have more.

“Panel members respond to online surveys on topics that are of interest to them and receive fewer than six surveys a year.” To join the Panel go to www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/enewsreg

Tensions Rise as the Final Chapter Opens

As the heady days of the summer solstice give way to the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, bowling folk prepare to stow their woods ahead of the coming snowfalls, fireworks, carols on the green and the Six Nations Tournament. Though not, however, before important conclusions of the present campaign’s business over the coming couple of weeks. In the Tuesday competition we have our last home match this week when we entertain Whitworth Park, finishing next Tuesday far north in the wilds of Bradwell. Whilst in the much sought-after Thursday league our account closes this week with a must-win encounter at Matlock Bath, as the aroma of a thousand industrial deep fat friers will waft gently o’er the green. (Hmm, may even partake when the game’s over, methinks.) It will then be left for us to chew our nails over the following week while Bradwell fulfil their 2 games in hand in their quest to overturn us.Last week’s matches were certainly noteworthy. Tuesday we were at home to Chatsworth, whose strength of personnel is commendation indeed considering that the Duke himself appears not to be able to get a place in the team. That it was a close one cannot be denied and as the last pairing was played out mental arithmetic was being performed in heads of all those present: a point here, a point there, would make the difference. Hush descended as the outcome of the final end produced a tie, 73 points apiece, honours even and warm handshakes all round. Thursday then saw our last home game in this league, a tense affair against Matlock Golf Club. Once again it was close, could have gone either way for long periods, but Parwich did overcome in the end by 122 points to 104. Was this margin enough, you’ll all be asking? Well there’s no easy answer to this, you’ll just have to read next week to find out.

Oil Price Steady

Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Around 80 percent of Gulf of Mexico oil production remains shut in after Hurricane Ida according to BSEE data, holding oil at around $73 a barrel for Brent Crude this week.

Delivery times 7 to 10 days, but due to driver shortages in some areas these times are now an estimated delivery time, so please allow plenty of time for your order to be delivered. If you are low on heating oil this group order will not be suitable.

TIP: Cut back any overgrown greenery – As we come to the end of the summer months, greenery is at its fullest. Therefore it is a good idea to cut back any overgrowth that may be surrounding your tank or obscuring access to your property, so that the tanker drivers are able to access your property, inspect whether the tank is safe, and to deliver your oil safely. Drivers are required to inspect at least 3 sides of a tank, and may not be able to successfully complete a delivery if this is not possible or their access is obscured.

Rate:  £0.4301 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])
