Following the great success of the Phil Beer concert last year, we are delighted to announce that Phil’s partner in “Show of Hands”, Steve Knightly will be appearing at the village hall on Friday 27th April (doors will open at 7.30). Steve is the song writing force behind Show of Hands who are widely acclaimed as the finest acoustic roots duo in England with 3 sell out Royal Albert Hall concerts behind them and the award of the BBC Folk Award for their song – Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed. They also won the best duo award in the same year. This should prove to be a highly successful concert with tickets going fast. If you want to get a taster of what Steve.’s music is like, log onto the band’s website where there are examples of the fine work that they produce – BBC2s Mike Harding has described this Exeter based performer as “one of England’s greatest song writers” and MOJO wrote “Steve Knightley’s songs have developed such an edge it’s hard to deny them any longer”. This will be a concert not to be missed. Tickets are restricted to 200 only. The cost is £15 (adults) and £10 (children 7 – 16) Tickets may be bought from the Postcard Cafe (cash or cheque only) or call on 0114 285 1235 Steve Dennis February 2012

The following alert has been received by the local group: Alert Subject: Spare wheel thefts There appears to be a spate of vehicle crime where Ford Transit vans are specifically being targeted for their spare wheels which are located underneath the vehicle and the wire holding them in place can be cut. One BT worker who was spoken to didn‘t report the first one, however, a day later after having just been replaced, it was then stolen again and he then let the Police know. However, when he went to replace it he was queuing with 10 other colleagues who had all been victims of this type of crime. Most of the thefts are within the Sheffield and Rotherham areas.

A light-hearted but true tale of the present ‗bus service‘ By Keith Willmott of Stannington The last few months, been in a state, Buses missing, running late. Stood waiting down at Smithy Bridge, Is that a bus coming o‘er the ridge.

Quite often they are breaking down, It‘s hilly here, not flat like town. We need a bus that will not feign, Climbing up as steep as Woodfall Lane.

For any enquiries concerning baptisms, weddings or other matters, please contact the Rector, the Revd Alan Isaacson (0114) 285 1225 e-mail:

Let‘s hope that if there are some cuts, After all the ifs and buts, There‘ll be a service running true On routes 61 and 62.

GET OUT OF THE CAR! (This item is supposedly a true account recorded in the Police Log of Saratosa, Florida)

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

She tried and tried, and then she realised why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat.

She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, ―I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!‖

A few minutes later she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The four men didn‘t wait for a second threat They got out and ran like mad.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn‘t stop laughing.

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver‘s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.

He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, wearing glasses, curly white hair and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed. And the moral of the story? If you are going to have a senior moment … make it memorable. I‘m on a Committee! Oh, give me your pity—I‘m on a committee Which means that from morning to night We attend and amend, and contend and defend Without a conclusion in sight. We compose and propose We suppose and oppose, and the points of procedure are fun. But though various notions are brought up as motions There‘s terribly little gets done. We confer and concur, we defend and demur We reiterate all of our thoughts. We revive the agenda with frequent addenda and consider a load of reports. We resolve and absolve but we never dissolve. Since it‘s out of the question for us What a chattering pity to end our Committee Where else could we make such a fuss? 33

CHUCKLE CORNER WALKING Walking can add minutes to your life, This enables you at 95 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at £2,000 per month.

Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.

I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I‘m doing.

The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

Every time I hear the dirty word ‗exercise‘ I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 250 quid. Haven‘t lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they‘ll say, ―Well, she looks good doesn‘t she‖.

I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years … just getting over the hill.

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he‘s 97 years old and we don‘t know where he is.

We all get heavier as we get older, because there‘s a lot more information in our heads. That‘s my story and I‘m sticking to it.


We are having an open day on Sunday May 20th from 10.00am – 4.00pm in addition to our normal Thursday openings. We will also be taking part in the local parish shows and galas which normally run throughout June and July The majority of our old archives are now available to research on-line and can be viewed at We are now well under way with cataloguing/indexing these documents which should now make researching family names and locations easier when reading the documents. Anyone wishing to help with this project should contact Malcolm Nunn at the Parish Offices. 0114 285 1375 We are still open every Thursday between 9am and 4.30pm for anyone to research family/local/social history
