Friendly Parwich – International Hotspot?

We had a very good friend here for the day last week, Meg, who although English by birth has lived in the States for most of her life, with an American husband and  three American children.

She had escaped the stifling heat of Washington DC for a brief nostalgic visit to her homeland, visiting family and close friends. We took her for a walk round Parwich where, it being a pleasant summer’s day but very certainly not too stiflingly hot,  lots of people were in their gardens or on leisurely sociable errands in our quintessentially English village.

And the first, second and third friendly  ‘locals’  we bumped into were American or Canadian; we then returned home where she met two more Canadians who were holidaying here in Douglas’s Barn on leave from the Middle East…

Meg did meet several true Brits as well. She was struck, as  practically all our guests also volunteer, how very genuinely friendly everyone they meet in the village is, from the children playing outside to the oldest adult.

Parwich may not really live up to Meg’s fleeting international experience but it does boast some wonderfully warm and friendly inhabitants and it’s a wonderful place to live.
