Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Parwich Life – a Brief Insight

A new look for John?

The Parwich blog (as against our blog) has some really interesting posts today, which those of you nostalgic from time to time might be interested to see. Firstly, there is an a photographic exhibition of portraits by local people. do have a look at the recently enobled John F-S, with a self -portrait in the style of Gainsborough.

chaffinchMany of you may remember/know Debbie our great American friend who lives in the village and who over the years has often helped us with the barns when we have been away. She has sent in a number, including a lovely one of Ally their daughter. John’s is more, shall we say, unusual…

There is also a very interesting post from Afghanistan from Ben Ingham who lived in the village as a boy and whose family still live here. One can understand why he should feeling nostalgic for Parwich.

There is also news of Nia, whom you probably won’t have met because, although she plays an active role in village life actually works full time away from the village. She has just run the 42-mile  gruelling High Peak Marathon to raise money for a friend’s child devastatingly affected by meningitis last year. Apparently she and some friends did it in 15 1/2 hours, non-stop.

Not directly to do with Parwich but of possible interest/dismay to everyone, some of you may have also seen in this  week’s The Week that  we are being predicted a series of bitterly cold winters in Europe and possible the arrival of a mini ice-age!! John and I are seriously considering snow tyres…

And finally, a portrait of Boots, taken by John today and a chaffinch.
