By Bradfield Newsletter‘s Roving Reporter

Thank you to all – groups and individuals – who have contributed towards the restoration and development of our church organ. At the time of printing the work is nearly complete, and all are invited to:

I would imagine that the military occupied the village hall for about 5 years all told. They were guarding the dams basically. They fixed pylons either side of the dams with strings hanging down with weights. They used to practice the bouncing bomb, mainly on Ladybower, but they also did some practising on Dam Flask. And I remember sitting in the grass with my friend watching the aeroplanes coming down the valley from Derwent.

In 1944 I would be 10 so went to Bradfield Village School. I believe that the reason I am claustrophobic now is because I had to wear a gas mask and always said that mine didn‘t fit as I could put my finger under it. The gas van came round and we had to go in it to see if the mask worked. I was absolutely terrified because mine was leaking. And to me that gas van was a nightmare. We had a cellar with a stone slab, and my mother had a *pancheon that she made bread in, this was full of water and she would sit under the stone slab when the sirens went. I was terrified of being closed in down there and insisted on staying in the room. There was a tin plate in front of the fire that rattled every time a bomb dropped, but I wouldn‘t go into the cellar. *Pancheon: a large earthenware bowl, white glazed on the inside.

BRADFIELD By Keith Willmott

Spring is back, another year, It really has flown by But I’m glad that I’m still here. To hear the curlews cry

Daffodils wave on a gentle breeze, By the bridge o’er a babbling brook. Blossom flowering on the trees, Have a walk and take a look.

Farmers markets, craft fairs all, Bowls, tennis and village cricket, Films to watch in the village hall, Don’t forget to buy a ticket.

Hard work goes in to keep it well, So thanks to all who volunteer. There goes the sound of the old church bell.

Another Spring, Another Year.

A passenger in a taxi tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments, everything was silent in the cab and then the driver said, ―Please don‘t ever do that again. You scared the living daylights out of me!‖ The passenger, who was also frightened, apologized and said he didn‘t realise that a tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much. The driver replied, ―I‘m sorry. It‘s really not your fault at all. Today is my first day driving a cab. For the last 25 years, I‘ve been driving a hearse.‖ A Real Story Reply from BAA, the world‘s leading airport company. As I wanted to check the safe departure of my daughter who was flying to New York for a few days I logged onto LHR Airport and checked the Live Flight Information mid morning only to find the Live Status Column completely blank. Somewhat disappointed at this lack of information, I e-mailed BAA to complain. I received the following e-mail in reply ! From website feedback@baa.com Sent: Saturday, November 05, 2005 6.36 PM Subject: Re: Baa.com Feedback Thank you for your enquiry. So sorry you were unable to obtain the information.

CHUCKLE CORNER PARAPROSDOKIAN SENTENCES ‗Paraprosdokian‘ is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax, for example …  We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.  War does not determine who is right—only who is left.  Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit: Wisdom is not putting it in a

fruit salad.

 The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.  Evening news is where they begin with ‗Good evening‘, and then proceed

to tell you why it isn‘t.  To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is

research.  A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops.

On my desk, I have a work station.

 How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a

whole box to start a campfire?  I didn‘t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.  Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars,

but check when you say the paint is wet?  The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!  To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the

target.

ENGLISH HERITAGE OPEN DAYS We will again be taking part in English Heritage Open Days National Events—we have arranged for a guided/historical walk around Ughill on Saturday September 8th starting from the Water Monument on Hoarstones Road at 1 a.m. and finishing around 12.30 p.m.—anyone wishing to join in this walk must book prior to the date.

FAMILY/LOCAL HISTORY DAY We are once again staging this popular event— it will take place on Sunday 21st October in Low Bradfield village hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission will be free of charge and refreshments will also be available. There will be around 12 organisations taking part in this year‘s event.

BRADFIELD DVD We now have a DVD around Bradfield available at £3 per copy and it is the original vine film taken by George Gaisford of Ughill Hall in 1963. It was transferred to video around 20 years ago and due to requests for copies we have transferred now it to a DVD. Copies can be obtained from myself. BRADFIELD PARISH ARCHIVES/FAMILY HISTORY CENTRE 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 www.bradfieldarchives/co.uk.

This is an unusual paragraph. I‘m curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching! (Answer at bottom of page 35.)

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 me at the Parish Offices. We are still open every Thursday between 9 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. for anyone to research family/local/social history.

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 26 MARCH 2012 Countryside campaigners cheer Peak District plans for action on off-roading Plans published on Friday to save Peak District green lanes from off-roading damage are being welcomed by local campaigners. The Peak District National Park Authority has committed to work on 27 routes in the National Park, including making repairs on some and consulting on road closures on others. “This is great news! We’ve been campaigning for the National Park Authority to get on with protecting our most sensitive and damaged lanes, so it’s really heartening that it has listened to local people’s concerns and is putting its money where its mouth is,” said John King, planning officer with Friends of the Peak District1. In particular, the action plan identifies five lanes where it will consult with the public about what it calls “vehicle regulation”:  Long Causeway at Stanage Edge  Cherpit Lane at Great Longstone  The Roych near Chapel-en-le-Frith  Brough Lane above Bamford  Brushfield, near Monsal Head “Long Causeway and the Roych are the current top two lanes we’ve been lobbying to save as part of our Take Back the Tracks campaign. Work on these is really urgent because the damage is so terrible, and the landscapes here are particularly environmentally sensitive,” said John King. However, the action plan does not specify what kind of vehicle regulation the National Park Authority will be consulting on. “The National Park Authority may suggest a number of options including seasonal restrictions or just making lanes one-way. We want bold action – and the most sensitive lanes closed to all recreational vehicles for good! Our precious green lanes need saving properly, and permanently,” added John King. “This is by no means a done deal. If you care about your countryside, please look out for the consultations and have your say.” The consultations are due to start this summer. 30

On a solo UK tour which started in January, Steve Knightley paused in Bradfield on Friday 27th April 2012. And a full house was royally entertained. As the song writing force behind ―Show of Hands‖, he is best known for his work alongside Phil Beer (who visited us last year). Together they are widely acclaimed as the finest acoustic roots duo in England. Steve‘s easy mixture of anecdotes, inspiring music and instrumental versatility enchanted everyone. We look forward to the day the two of them visit Bradfield as ―Show of Hands‖ … watch this space!

March 2012 Bradfield in Bloom member Sue Jamison-Powell creating a “Willow *Fedge” to screen the beehives in the Community Orchard. [NB: * A „Fedge‟ is a cross between a fence and a hedge]

And after the show, everything has to be packed up and moved on. Thank you Steve for a very good night. 14

YORKSHIRE IN BLOOM JUDGES REPORT SPRING 2012 Category 1A

We are aiming to support our soldiers (service men/women) by collecting a number of items to fill shoe boxes. We will then send them overseas to promote the wellbeing of armed forces personnel.

Bradfield in Bloom Introduction The wonderful setting of the villages was enhanced on the day of our visit by wonderful weather. Situated on the edge of the peak district it attracts large numbers of visitors. This brings with it issues such as parking and litter, the group do well to keep the area litter free as this will be a constant challenge. Innovation would seem to be the factor that drives the group, fund raising by catering at the farmers market rewards the hard work with an income. The whole village seems to undertake challenges be it the bowlers building a new pavilion or the bloom group clearing the stream and planting an orchard. Section A: Horticultural Achievement Areas of Achievement The setting and care given to the cricket field and bowls area provide a pleasant heart to the lower village. This is enhanced by the planting often on difficult sites of spring flowers including daffodils. The idea to recycle spring bedding plants for future use; and to purchase them from a nursery being established to help disabled in to work. The church yard and the maintenance team of sheep have mown this large and difficult area.

THINGS WE CAN PUT IN THE BOXES:  Toothpaste/toothbrushes

 Crackers/ Crisps/ Oatcakes

 Shampoo/ conditioner

 Packet Soups/ Stock Cubes/ Beef Jerky

 Shower gel

 Cereal bars/ Dried fruit

 Roll on deodorant

 Biscuits/ Shortbread/ Small cakes

 Razors/Shaving gel

 Travel sweets/ Chocolate bars

 Talcum powder

 Toffee/ Fudge/ Lollipops

 Foot powder

 Chocolate raisins/ peanuts

 Cotton buds

 Mints/ Chewing gum/ Fruit pastilles, etc.

 Wet wipes/Tissues

 Magazines/Puzzle books

 Lip balm

 Sport programmes/ Jigsaws

 Insect Repellent

 Travel games/Playing cards

 Sun screen

 Notebooks/Sketch books

 Sanitary protection

 Blank blue airmail letters

 Socks/ Boot laces

 Pens/ Pencils/ Colouring Pencils

::: MESSAGE OF SUPPORT ::: ANY OTHER SMALL ITEM YOU CAN THINK OF :::

Areas for improvement Consider carefully the replacement planting for the triangle in High Bradfield, as it is in a busy area careful thought will need to be given as to the replacement plan and plant selection. The Parish Council garden was due for a spring tidy up to set the area up for summer. Monitor the bed at the top of the wall by the village hall, this will always be a challenge but recent improvements should help with plant establishment. 16

We also need shoeboxes to put the items in, so if you have any spare please can you donate them? We hope you can help to collect the items above to help soldiers that are constantly helping us by fighting for our country.

Thank You!!! Hannah and Harry Warwick (Aged 14 and 11) For further details please contact Joanna Warwick (Mum)– 07912 884179 25


Section B: Environmental Responsibility Areas of Achievement Cleaning the stream and banking to allow a wider range of plants to grow in a natural setting. The high level of achievement from the activities the group undertakes. Things are well planned and a range of projects are proposed to keep developing the area. New signs around the village provide information and add interest for visitors. The Parish Council assistance with mowing the orchard. The fund raising activities of the group. Areas for Improvement Bradfield is an excellent example of community involvement be it in bloom or other groups. However the group sees the need to gain new members if possible. It may be possible to try to do this on the orchard day when a large number of people will be around. Some sort of contact point or way of getting contact details could be considered. Section C: Community Participation Areas of Achievement To keep the area litter free with such a high number of visitors is hard work, but very effective. The orchard and the development of bee hives and the planting of the edible hedge by children. Consider perennial planting when re窶電eveloping areas to reduce work load and cost. Areas for Improvement As the orchard becomes more established information boards or guides could be considered both for the orchard and possibly as a guide to other plants and trees in the area. A little like wild life boards but for plants.

The summer Judging Day will be on Tuesday 17th July 2012 24
