FOCALPOINT Issue No. 355 -  June 2010


 Ed’s Comments

 What a lovely end to May, weather wise, as a walk through the village with all of the blossom trees in full bloom was really special.

 June is always an interesting month in the village, this year being no exception. We have a big event within our group of churches on the 6th June with the visit of the Bishop. It starts at the Showground at 9.30am with the Inaugural Service to which everyone is invited. For full details see David’s article and the Church Notices. 

There is what is probably the last public meeting to discuss next month’s village Festival, also the Tennis season gets under way with its opening fun tournament.

The cricket season is now two weeks in and Andrew’s report has some good news and some bad! Bad news first; One or more dog walkers are not clearing the mess their dogs are making. The cricketers should not have to undergo a ‘search and cleanup’ before being able to play. Perhaps the answer is to ban dog walking on or around the pitch? Anyone spotting an offender should report it to the Parish Council who I’m sure will take action. Now the good cricket news, the RAF ladies are coming to play at Winthorpe on the 12th! (I’m not being sexist am I?) For you ladies, men play nearly every week.

 For a boat lover like me I check my emails each month in anticipation of another story from Martin and Lynn about their narrow boat odyssey. They don’t disappoint this month with a lovely report on our rivers.

 On behalf of all of our readers may I join with Ann Stone in congratulating Dys Gold on joining Winthorpe’s ‘Nineties’ club.

I know I couldn’t believe it either!!

We will soon be announcing details of the event at the Community Centre in September to celebrate ten years of operation. Before then, at the Summer Festival on Saturday, 17th July, we will be putting on a display of pictures of events that have taken place. We already have a good selection of photos covering public events like the Festivals but very few pictures of other occasions like weddings and anniversaries. If you have some and are willing to lend them please contact Peter Foden, Keith Lloyd or Pat Finn. It is pictures with people on them that other people like to look at! Any photos lent will be carefully looked after.

W.I. - WINTHORPE AND DISTRICT REPORT FOR MAY

 Mrs. Pat Nelson our President welcomed members to our Resolution meeting. There were only a few apologies of absence.

Mrs Tinsley read the minutes and the correspondence from County. There was interest to see Hannah Gordon later this year.

It had been decided that this year at the Festival we will have a Bottle stall and members were asked to bring bottles of any description for this

From a bottle of ketchup to a bottle of Champagne! There will be a prize everytime.

After the business was done, Mrs Nelson introduced Mrs.Ellie Briggs from the Executive who was to talk us through the only Resolution this year, which will be voted on at the Annual General meeting in Cardiff.

The Resolution was that:-

‘This meeting urges the Government to make the labeling of fish and meat mandatory with the country of origin’.

At the moment this is up to the vendors of the products and there are only a few who do this. Some supermarkets are very good, but some beef can be labelled British if it has been brought into the country from abroad and then processed in this country. Mrs Briggs had brought some labels from different products and supermarkets that were suitably labeled. One was a prepared Thai chicken curry and the country of origin of the chicken was Thailand. After a short discussion the resolution was voted on and was unanimously voted for. Mrs. Briggs will be voting for us on the day.

Mrs Barbara Nelson gave the vote of thanks to the Speaker for the clear and precise way she had explained the resolution.

After the raffle and tea and biscuits the meeting closed.

We are collecting bottles for our bottle stall so if people in the village would be so kind, anything is acceptable. Thank-you.

Our next meeting is June 10th 7-30pm in the Village Hall when Rebecca Pocock will be talking on Health remedies.

The Hostesses are Mesdames K.Harvey, S.Hopewell and L.Goodwin.

Garden Club

The theme of Andrew Sankey’s talk ‘A Year in the Life of a Cottage Garden’ was beautifully illustrated by numerous slides of his own fabulous Lincolnshire garden. The size, colour and textures of the planting profusion were further enhanced by the backdrop of old brick walls and unusual pathways constructed from a variety of recycled bricks, tiles, cobbles and occasional grass.

We were shown wonderful examples of all manner of plants flowering from February through to October. Amongst the earliest were snowdrops and hellebores which Andrew suggested should be grown near the house together with all spring-flowering plants, so that they can be enjoyed on even the most miserable days without having to venture outside.

 Lots of tips were given with regard to the most suitable varieties to grow on sandy land such as his own. For example, erythronium Pagoda, geranium Ann Thompson and hardy geranium Brookside, the latter flowering for many months, unlike other varieties. 

The entire presentation was liberally sprinkled with fascinating gems of folklore and history associated with the culture of the cottage garden. All the plants would have had some practical as well as aesthetic value such as comfrey, used medicinally since Roman times and many plants had leaves and flowers used in salads for example.

Andrew is keen on companion planting and underplanting. In the former he recommended planting garlic chives amongst vegetables to give protection against greenfly; also dahlias have been proven to have benefit against soil-borne pests. One useful tip was to underplant daffodils with hardy geraniums so that as the daffodils went’ over’ the unsightly stems would be screened by the emerging geraniums. I know of at least one of the audience who went home to try another tip straight away, that of making a garlic spray to protect hostas from slug and snail attack!

 There are no meetings at the Community Centre until September but there are still places available on our outing to Grimsthorpe Castle/Easton Walled Garden on June 16th and don’t forget the evening outing to Pykett’s on July 7th.

 GIANT SUNFLOWER COMPETITION

 There isn’t a flower in the world that lifts ones spirit as a sunflower. Big, bold, bright and cheerful with brilliant yellow petals, that surrounds the flower’s centre; they always appear to look sun-like. They are without doubt the number one choice for children to grow.

 It is now two months since you set your sunflower seeds and your plants should have made good progress. Did you notice that when you planted them out that they appeared to stop growing? This is because it takes seven days for the roots to become established and then they start growing at a fast pace.

Did you remember to put tall strong stakes in to support your plants, if not do it now. Keep tying your plants to their stakes as later on in the summer when we traditionally have strong winds, they will blow down.

 Did You Know?

This much loved flower, the giant of the daisy family, is grown worldwide as a food crop. Oil is extracted from its seeds and from the seeds themselves which, when dried, salted and baked make a tasty meal.

 Pat Finn.

 

 Winthorpe Cricket Club 

The Focal Point deadline has rolled round in its own inexorable style and here I am totally unprepared. At the time of reading hopefully you will all only be too aware of the good works done on Bank Holiday Monday both in support of the cricket club but also on behalf of the British Heart Foundation.

 So far this season (two weeks!) the weather has been fine and we have been able to complete the scheduled fixtures with little or no trouble. In fact the only problem that we have had is that of dog mess. On midweek games and weekend games we have had to clear away a number of visitations which is not a particularly pleasant task at the best of times. So please if you walk you dog down at the cricket field do the decent thing and clear away any deposits, it is especially frustrating when there is a dog bin provided for that very purpose.

 The season is very much underway now and you will have noticed the increased levels of activity with games on Saturdays, Sundays, nets on Friday evenings for the juniors of Coddington and Kavaliers fixtures midweek. If anyone would like to join in on the activity please do not hesitate to get in touch whether you are young, old, experienced or novice we can guarantee a good time will be had by all. Don’t forget that Coddington juniors are practising at the ground every Friday evening so if you are interested give us a call – see details later.

 The Club would also like to extend its thanks to Scott and Caroline at the Lord Nelson who again will be providing us with teas for the forthcoming season. We hope to repay them by dragging away teams kicking and screaming to the bar whether win, lose or draw to enjoy their hospitality.

 On the Bonus Ball front we have been busy selling numbers however are still not quite there yet despite everyone’s efforts. If you are or were a previous supporter of the Club through the Bonus Ball and would like to be a regular contributor again give me a call as I have a list of available numbers. It is being run on the old tried and tested formula however for those who wish we had introduced the option of paying via standing order, not a route I would personally recommend as it limits the number of visits per week I can legitimately make to the pub, or via the Bonus Ball jar which again will take up its rightful place behind the bar at the Lord Nelson.

 Don’t forget if you would like to find out more about the Club please take a look at the Cricket Club webpage on the Village website and also take a look at our own website on www.winthorpecc.co.uk which has now been bought up to date. 

 Contact Details

Should you wish to contact the Club please call any of the following or alternatively there is a “Contact the Club” facility on the website.

 Andy Fereday – 678622 -- Simon Potter – 612968

Paul Matthews - 677769

 Results:

 9th May saw our first game of the season being played at home against Owmby. It was somewhat concerting having turned up early to find the queuing at the gate to get in then closely followed by them going through a series of vigorous drills prior to the toss. Having won the toss we decided to bat partly influenced by only having 10 men and partly by not wanting to spend potentially along afternoon in the field before batting. Making a steady start with a makeshift opening partnership of Fereday and Potter the score progressed to 23 before the first wicket fell after 14 overs when Potter was caught and bowled for 0. Owmby bowled tightly and fielded well eventually dismissing Winthorpe for 61 of 29 overs which all in all equated to a poor batting performance all round leaving the bowlers with not much of a target to bowl at. In reply Owmby knocked off the runs relatively comfortably with Simon Potter being the pick of the Winthorpe bowlers finishing wirth figures of 10 overs 1 for 13 with admirable support from Dan Marshall 4 overs 2 for 6.

16th may saw another home game this time versus Bassingham. Again winning the toss Winthorpe batted first putting on a total of 105 all out which on the face of it was a good score however we only batted out 34 of the 40 overs available. Neil Bailey top scored with a swashbuckling 25 hitting four 4s and a 6. In reply the visitors were dismissed for 80 after a good team effort on the bowling front with the wickets being shared between Danieal Marshall who took 4 with Bailey, Noble and Fereday taking 2 apiece.

Adventures aboard NB Mulberry:- 

On the River

The rivers of Great Britain were highways of commerce, travel and invasion from historic times, only later in the eighteenth century did artificially dug canals add greatly to these highways although the Fossdyke linking Lincoln with the Trent was excavated by the Romans.

Canals and rivers have quite different characters for those travelling on them. Our boat was first launched onto the River Trent and is adapted a little more for river use than a standard narrow boat. One of the features of rivers is the current so we have a more powerful engine and a deeper stern to cope with this.

The Trent is a good introduction, the river is wide and sinuous, the locks are large and mostly operated by the resident keepers and places for mooring up are fewer but well marked. The scenery is often more open and towns on the river present a more acceptable face than those on canals.

The company you keep is also different, from racing sculls to sea-going cruisers.

On the River Aire near Leeds, we came across 600 tonne oil tankers and sand barges forty times bigger than our puny vessel; if you can see them keep clear and even if you can’t see them you can feel the throb of their engines and their bow wave! A radio is useful in these circumstances so that you can listen to the river traffic and contact the lock keepers to see what’s going on.

A serious drawback to river navigation is rain. When heavy rain arrives the river can flood so stopping any navigation. We have been caught twice like this, once at Guildford, with a two week wait for the Wey and Thames to subside and once at Mirfield, on the River Calder near Leeds for a week. In both cases we had safe, secure moorings but were frustrated by the delays.

On the other hand, rivers rarely run out of water, which can happen with canals, and they are mostly wide and deep, which helps the boat to ‘swim’ nicely. Our most memorable river is the Thames, which is visually stunning, with excellent facilities for boaters and with a whole array of beautiful historic towns right on the river banks.

The most historic is, of course, London and we started our trip with a week moored up at Paddington Basin, just a short walk from Hyde Park Corner. It’s like having your own hotel room in the centre and amazingly it’s free! We had another few days in Limehouse Basin, close to Canary Wharf, in a marina in the company of ocean going yachts and ‘gin palaces’ before sailing up the River Thames, under Tower Bridge, past the Houses of Parliament, Chelsea and all the smart riverside locations, right up to Teddington Lock, where the weir and lock hold back the river, so that it is non-tidal in the upper reaches.

Above Teddington Lock are a whole range of other interesting places, Hampton Court Palace, Marlow, Henley, Bray, Cookham, Maidenhead, Oxford, each memorable in different ways and at each we have our own home, right next to the places of interest. For instance, at Hampton Court there are properly prepared and comfortable moorings right by the main entrance, in fact probably where Henry VIII landed whenever he visited. At Runnymede you can moor up right by the historic site of the signing of the Magna Charta.

The Thames is certainly worth a visit, but so is the Avon at Bristol, which takes you right into the heart of the historic city. Here the so called ‘Floating Harbour’ is home to the SS Great Britain and the replica ‘Matthew’ in which Cabot discovered North America. Mooring here is quite expensive as the harbour is a commercial concern, but it is worth it.

We like rivers and still have to discover the Severn and the Warwickshire Avon, so the future holds more adventures.

 A bit of motoring advice received via email.....

 

GOOD VISION IN A DOWNPOUR.

How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour.

We are not sure why it is so effective; just try this method when it rains heavily.

It is useful; even driving at night most motorists would turn their wipers onto the FASTEST SPEED during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is still bad!

In the event you face such a situation, Just try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do), and miracle! all of a sudden the visibility in front of your Windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.

Therefore make sure you always have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your car. Amazing, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling, you can see where the rain bounces off the road.

It also works to eliminate the "blindness" from passing cars spraying you too. It really does work.

 

Another bit of advice......

I wonder how many people know about this?

A 36 year old female had an accident and severely damaged her car. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!

When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened he told her something that every driver should know -

“NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN OR IN ICY CONDITIONS WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON”.

She thought that she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.

But the highway Patrolman told her that if the cruise control is on when your car begins to hydro-plane and your tyres lose contact with the pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an aeroplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.

The patrolman felt that this warning should be indicated in the car perhaps on the Sun-visor.

Apparently some vehicles will not allow the use of ‘cruise control’ if the wipers are on.

I wonder if anyone has anything to add to the above? Ed

Commanders Update

  Operation Arrow closing in on targets

Crime in Nottinghamshire is at its lowest in 20 years and locally, crime across Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood is down for the sixth consecutive year.

The force is performing better, but we still need to push for further improvements

to compete favourably with our most similar forces.

Our ‘Policing for You with 20/20 Vision’ performance plan is aimed at improving

performance by 20 per cent across the board.

In April the force began a three-month drive, called Operation Arrow, to speed up the rate of improvement further. The priorities are to reduce burglary, robbery and violence. We also need to increase detections for burglaries, robberies and vehicle offences.

One month into the operation, Arrow is not just hitting but exceeding some of its targets. For example, the number of assaults is well below the target set and more cases of robbery, burglary and car crime are being detected than the target level. But we need to do more to reduce burglaries and robberies, which rose beyond the target level in April.

Officers have been freed up from training days to create proactive teams to target specific problems as they emerge daily and three marketing campaigns will be launched this month to raise crime prevention awareness.

The extra officers we were allocated in April are having a significant impact on our performance and are increasing our visibility and resilience on the frontline.

My intention is to get offenders on the back foot. I want to reduce the fear of crime for the law-abiding majority and increase the fear of arrest among those who break the law.

The improvements and achievements gained during the three months of Operation Arrow will have a long-lasting effect.

My aim to provide the best possible police service to the people

of Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood is not just for 90 days, it is a 365-day a year commitment.

Dave Wakelin

Church Notices

 Congratulations to one of our dearest church members, Mrs Dys Gold , on attaining her majority (90) on Monday 10th May.! Some of her closest friends toasted her continued health and involvement in church & village activities. All who knew her husband John still miss his lively wit & humour and we know that he would have been very proud of Dys. 

At last the re-pointing of the church brickwork has commenced. We are very grateful to Mr Gerry Platts for tidying and removing rubbish from the south wall of the church.

A further improvement to the interior lighting is an additional light that has been fitted inside the entrance of the church.

Dear All

 As I write this letter to you much in our ordered lives is in flux. The nation having waited to find out which party will run our country has discovered it is to be a 21 century coalition. Although the initial decision has been made there will still be uncertainty as we wonder how long?

 Jesus brought good news that through faith in him followers will gain eternal life with God and so when, for whom and how long remain pertinent questions for all faith followers. They are key questions that most struggle with at some point along life’s faith journey. The festivals of Easter, Ascension tide and Pentecost remind followers about waiting, patience, trust and reward. They are markers along a spiritual path that can often become uneven and hard to follow.

 The markers and the messages contained within the festival of Easter, confirmed by the meeting with the men on the road to Emmaus, Jesus’ subsequent mystical Ascension and finally Pentecost, the gift of the Holy Spirit provide evidence, but more spiritual nourishment for all who seek to follow.

 Our East Trent Churches have begun the journey as a group well. The support from groups and individuals throughout all the churches is heart warming.

On June 6th our Bishop, The Right Reverend Paul Butler will make his first visit to the East Trent Group of Churches.

 It is a key moment in our development and history. It is affirming evidence and provides us with enormous encouragement. 

 Bishop Paul will give the address at the Inaugural Service of the East Trent Group at the Joe Hallam Pavilion at Newark Showground. This will take place at 9.30am on 6th June. All are welcome. There will be an opportunity to meet the Bishop over a cup of tea after the service. Then the Bishop will travel to Collingham where he will consecrate a new Cemetery. He will journey to Harby for a service at noon to celebrate the restoration of the church roof, incorporating Holy Communion. Bishop Paul will preach and preside at the Communion. 

The Bishop will make further visits to St George the Martyr at Clifton and All Saints Winthorpe.

He will return to South Scarle via Besthorpe, where at around 4pm he will bless their new Church Roof. The final service of the day will be Choral Evensong at 4.30pm at South Scarle. Last of all, another cup of tea and a further opportunity to speak to the Bishop.

 The 6th June 2010 will be a day to remember along the East Trent. You are warmly invited to join us on this groundbreaking occasion.

Yours in Christ

David
