Parwich & Beyond

Parwich Wakes

Fun and games for all

The annual Wakes Week is upon us once again, and all the activities taking part in wonderfully relaxing warm weather. A short shower of rain last night was only refreshing – one knew it simply couldn’t last!

The week always starts with the Parwich Oddfellows’ Procession round the village accompanied  by a rousing brass band and scores of followers. There are various pre-arranged stop-offs for refreshments before everyone goes to a special service in the church and then the Oddfellows enjoy a traditional ‘roast dinner’ in the Memorial Hall.

Then there are stalls, children’s entertainments and finally a fancy dress parade with some magnificent floats and clever ideas. There are hosts of photos on the Parwich Blog, many – but by no means all – John’s. Do have a look.

Meanwhile, the jollities continue all week… The best place to follow them will be on parwich.org
