Parwich.org , our village blog, has just reached a fairly historic milestone – half a million visits in under three years which is quite (very!) impressive.
When it started it was apparently one of the very first villages to have its own website, but now apparently even Ambridge has one! And what is more, apparently the Archers scriptwriters are using ours for ideas, which is amusing – do keep your ears open, all you Archers fans – to see what similarities you can spot when the Ambridge blog is talked about!
That’s quite a thought – perhaps we ought to suggest to the village blog team they could run a ‘Spot the Difference’ competition. You never know, there might even be a local Tom’s & Douglas’s Barns-type blog set up.
I have a horrible feeling if there is it’ll probably be Lynda Snell that does it; if so do you think Robert will become the unofficial village photographer…? Or maybe it’ll be Joe Grundy. Hope I’m wrong on all counts.
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
