Pump Hill Damage

Having read about the misuse of herbicide at Pump Hill I walked through there this afternoon. I was shocked at what can really only be called vandalism. Plants and shrubs which had been planted by volunteers and using money kindly donated by organisations and individuals have been wantonly damage. It is difficult to see how damage at this level can have happened by someone using herbicide on weeds and accidentally catching the occasional plant. This looks like an outright massacre. Fiona H

Anyone wanting to help with marshalling on the night to contact Nia on 661. Help much appreciated.


Well they’re all saying It’s Coming Home. Football’s coming home, bowls is coming home… we’re all daring to dream. Last Tuesday by careful manipulation and understanding by our skipper I managed to time my own game in order to see England beat Germany – and so it was a pair of very fired-up Joneses who went on late to play our part in a fine Team performance to defeat Bakewell at home by 10 points – but the stage had been well set by those who went before us. Tuesday League performances very much looking up of late.
On the Thursday however…..a set back. The odd number of teams in the league means that one club has to sit it out each week and this time it was our turn. Teams with a match in hand won and for the first time in a couple of months we lost our top spot. Here’s hoping to bring you all news of normal service being resumed as soon as possible.
On to this week’s encounters: with England safely through to the Euro semi-final the Parwich band travelled to Darley Dale’s Whitworth Park. What a match this was, swinging one way and then the other – then back again – end to end stuff with no pun intended… Gave it all we had on a long night until the light was fading, but ended up on the wrong side of a SINGLE POINT defeat (68-67). Noticeable though as the first time when both teams were sat mingled together whilst waiting to play, so progress being evident in our quest to get social life moving again. What a pleasant bunch they were as well.
Thursday morning dawned. England as per normal had given us a nail-biting night but have made the Final, and Parwich faced a must-win match on a very difficult but magnificently manicured green away at Wirksworth. Well what a performance we all put on, coming away all smiles with a 139 to 100 victory to maintain second position but poised to fight for the top spot again.
So, a week in prospect. Is football coming home? Can Parwich overcome (temporary) league leaders Bradwell on Thursday? I, for one, hope our wishes all come true.  Mark J…

Cancelled PDHS Event

PDHS- programme update- please note that the event listed on our programme has been cancelled due to Covid restrictions:

July Takeaway at the Legion

Oil Price Up

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

Oil prices remain at a 3-year high with Brent crude maintaining $75+ a barrel as markets believe oil demand will return to pre pandemic levels by the end of the year.

TIP: Remove condensation from your tank – With the recent warmer weather heating up oil tanks, there may be more condensation in your tank than usual. Over time water builds up at the bottom of a tank through condensation.
To prevent this causing issues we recommend using a Water Scavenger which will absorb any water in your 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 first, you can purchase a Water Test Kit. For more information please visit The Club Store.

Rate:  £0.4195 (pence per litre excluding vat [5% for Domestic use])

Bin Collections

Unfortunately there continues to be disruption to waste and recycling collections in some areas of the Dales as a result of the national shortage of HGV drivers and we apologise to those residents affected. Crews will be working on Saturday to try to clear the back log of waste, but it is unlikely they will be able collect all missed bins on Saturday. Please leave your containers out for collection.

We are working closely with our contractor Serco’s senior managers to come up with a solution and a number of steps have already been taken including increasing the rates of pay for drivers, trying to source HGV drivers from other contracts and councils and the upskilling of staff. Whilst progress is being made, at this stage there is no quick fix but please be assured we will continue to work hard on this until normal standards of service have been resumed.

Ball Race Tonight

The Ball Race will take place tonight at 7.30pm on Pump Hill. The uptake for balls has been fantastic and for that we want to give you all a big thank you as now we have a bit of money in the pot for Bonfire night and next Wakes!! We were worried we wouldn’t sell as many this year which is why we changed the prizes to a % share but you haven’t let us down 😊. Next year the prizes will return to normal.

It’s looking like we may have 580 balls to release, if this is the case the prizes will be as follows:
First ball across the line = £116 (20%)
Second ball across the line = £58 (10%)
Third ball across the line = £29 (5%)

We will inform the winners tonight, including the confirmed amounts and also put it on Facebook and Parwich. Org

Any questions just let me know

Grey Bin Wednesday

…and Food Caddy.

No idea what happening about Blue Bins. My guess is leave them out and they might get emptied someti e.


Another great week for your illustrious Parwich bowling team as they record a further two victories across the leagues.
Tuesday evening at Bakewell produced a truly remarkable result as Parwich finished just one point away from a maximum 84 points * (* maximum for Tuesday league format only, Thursdays are max 153.) Two of the games were won by just one point, one lost by a mere point, plus one crushing victory gave us a score of 83-63. A good evening’s work indeed on Bakewell’s somewhat eccentric green.
On Thursday afternoon we entertained mid-table Matlock Bath and enjoyed a momentous tight battle which swung one way and then the other. After being down after the doubles rounds we triumphed across the singles to finally record a scoreline of 126 to 116 and further advance our position of league leaders. That there’s a good team spirit within our small club at present is undeniable; each member can have a sense of great satisfaction at the way we’re playing.
Tuesday sees us play Bakewell again, this time in the home fixture. It’ll take place at the same time as the England v Germany match so those that would have liked to won’t get to see it – but I’m sure there’ll be as many twists, turns and excitement at Parson’s Croft as there will be at Wembley… and with a good old cup of char to boot!

Burst Pipe

There is a burst water pipe up here opposite Hallgates at the top of the snicket that takes you down to the school. I’ve tried a few times unsuccessfully to report it to Severn Trent & just can’t get through !!!!!! There must be quite a deluge collecting at the bottom near Arnold & Sandras!!!! I’m hoping that someone will have managed to get through to Severn Trent but I’ll keep trying anyway. Karen R
