Tom’s Barn now boasts a brand new Bosch Slimline Dishwasher! The last one had given valiant service until it tried to wash with cold water – not a good idea!

If you have any worries about roads or weather before coming here do check with us first, and also for up to the minute reports during adverse conditions on our village blog.

Lots of events to go to in and around Parwich today but managed to get to the Horticultural Show in Parwich and the Hartington Show.
