Thank You

Val, Simon, Phil and Rosie want to thank everyone for their support over the last few weeks, and especially on Tuesday. It was very much appreciated to have so many friends and villagers at the church to welcome the funeral cortege, with special thanks going to the Parwich Oddfellows who gave a guard of honour for John.

There is an audio recording of the eulogy given by Mick Edge which we will try and post somewhere when technology allows, for those who were unable to come into the church and hear it in person.

Donations received are to be split between Ward 216 at Royal Derby and Cancer Research UK, the total currently stands at just over £800.

Thank you again x

Remembrance Day Service

Special dispensation has been given by the Government for Remembrance Day commemorations. The Peak Five outdoor service will be at the Parwich Memorial inside St Peter’s Church gates starting at 10.45am on Sunday 8th November.To comply with lockdown regulations, please gather while social distancing by household and refrain from socialising. Scanning the QR Code will give track and trace compliance. 2 meter distanced markers will be used. St Peter’s will be open from 2-4pm for the lighting of candles and private prayers to remember those we have loved and lost. 

A Barrel Load Of ?????

Has anyone lost a large (metal) barrel in the verge just past Hillcrest on the way out of the village? It’s been there for about a week or more. It has a painted green and yellow band, ‘Howard …’ on the side and an orange sticker with ‘Sira …’ on the top. I wouldn’t be able to distinguish a beer barrel from one with gunpowder in it, but someone may recognise it from the description. Please don’t cause a stampede as it may well be empty.  Saskia T

Anyone got a Piece of Plywood?

Hi Parwich neighbours! I’m after a big (and FREE!) piece of plywood or some sort of wood I could make a giant chalkboard sign with for a work project. As big as possible, although our clever volunteers could probably piece them together. We could meet at a mutually agreed outdoor space for a 2 metre distanced handover. I probably should have asked about this BEFORE bonfire night! 😊

Thanks, and stay safe!

Lockdown Guidance from Derby Dales DC

Lockdown 2
We’ve created a webpage with links to guidance about the new Lockdown 2 restrictions, Covid advice & support for local residents and businesses and any impacts on the services we provide for you.

Be Firework Safe
A reminder that it’s set to be a different sort of Bonfire Night now we are in new Covid restrictions. It’s likely to mean more activity in gardens in the absence of organised displays – so please be #fireworksafe and be a good neighbour. You can only mark Bonfire Night with people in your own household or support bubble.

Remembrance Sunday guidance
The Government has issued guidance that sets out how Remembrance Sunday activities can take place in line with new COVID-19 restrictions and requirements in England.

Tree Felling and Fire Wood

On Saturday the 31st October two trees at the Millennium Green on the bank above Rowan Cottage are planned to be cut down for safety reasons. At this time the contractors still intend to go ahead but this may be subject to the weather conditions on the day.

Some of the wood, cut small enough to be safely taken away by wheel barrow will be left on the Green for anyone who wishes to take it away for fire wood. Anyone wishing to collect some of this wood must wait until the contractors have completely cleared the site.  Please take are when collecting any wood. If you chose to take any wood this will be taken as acceptance that you are doing so at your own risk. If you are collecting wood no vehicles should be taken onto the Green or allowed to block the road.

Any wood left in the driveway of Rowan Cottage is not for public collection.
