Editors Letter...

Did you survive half term? I‘m not talking about those lucky enough to fly off somewhere warm! I am referring to the rest of us who shivered in the cold damp week trying to provide some outdoor time to keep the kids happy! I know it wasn‘t all that bad and there was one lovely day—few hours on Tuesday, but I suppose it is still February. On a visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, I forgot about the cold completely when I heard a low grumbling roar! A friend joked I was going mad and suggested the noise came from a nearby digger as the Lions are in quarantine until Easter, then to our astonishment (not that Lions at YWP is a big secret), there they were, a big cage obscured slightly from the crowds, filled with magnificent Lion and Lionesses. The adults amongst us were far more excited than the children as we all stood on a nearby garden seat to get a better view, I can‘t wait for Easter! Talking about Easter, Doncaster holds its very first One Mile Bunny Run on Townfields on Easter Saturday (3rd April). Organised by Austin Banks Recruitment Agency, the run is in aid of SAFE@LAST, a charity which gives help and support to children who are at risk through running away from home. Read more in this month‘s issue and register online at www.doncasterbunnyrun.co.uk don't forget your bunny ears!

News, News, News, News, News, News... Hayfield Centre Sports Plan moves ahead

Caroline Flint & Amanda Richardson Labour MP Caroline Flint has welcomed the progress towards new sports facilities for Auckley, following the latest funding received from the Government‘s Community Builders Scheme. Caroline was shown the latest plans for the £2.5million community centre, sports and business units by Amanda Richardson. The Government‘s Community Builders fund has approved £68,000 to complete all the preparations and tender process. ―I am delighted that the architect can now fine tune the plans for this great community facility and the whole scheme can go to Doncaster Council for planning approval,‖ said local resident Amanda Richardson. ―The Hayfield Centre CIC Board has worked tirelessly to get this project to final stage and I look forward to consulting residents on the final look of the scheme.‖

Peel Airports, Yorkshire Forward European funding; Community Builders and Hill House School are among the contributors to the project. Said Caroline: ―I am very excited that the plans are taking shape and funding is almost confirmed for this exciting community sports facility with managed workspaces. ―I am also very proud that the Government‘s Community Builders programme is helping the scheme. This important fund is dedicated to helping grassroots community enterprises to provide for a range of local needs, managed and controlled by local people. This scheme absolutely fits the bill. ―It was always part of the airport‘s plans that the community would benefit from some sports facilities; and these new plans will offer a range of indoor and outdoor sports, and some offices dedicated for small and start-up businesses. The Hayfield Centre CIC Board is doing a great job. I hope we will see building under way in the summer.‖

What A Start To 2010! Finningleys Tuesday Club started their 2010 programme with a bang. The afternoon was turned over to eating and dancing and great fun was had by all, we hope. The group met up at noon to enjoy a light lunch of leek and potato soup,made by Pam Robinson ably assisted in the peeling onions department by her husband Keith. This was followed by a selection of sandwiches and tea. At 1p.m. the afternoon really got into swing when Claire and Colin Royle arrived to lead the dancing. We enjoyed waltzes, quicksteps, square tangos, and a barn dance before learning a new dance called the friendship waltz which caused a great deal of amusement to those attempting to learn it as well as those watching. The rule was, ―if you don't dance, you sing and most folk were happy to have a go at both. We concluded the afternoon with tea and biscuits before wending our way home. Our thanks go to all those people who put such effort into preparing food, helping throughout and then tidying up at the end of the afternoon. Why don't you join us for our March meeting. We meet again on Tuesday 30th of March at 1.45p.m. in Finningley village hall where we will discuss Remeniniscence Boxes from The Doncaster Museum Services----Come along and see what memories they provoke. We look forward to seeing you there.

It Makes Sense To Buy Locally Grown Plants The key advantages of buying locally grown plants: plants that will grow better, fewer plant miles from the grower to your garden and support for jobs in the UK horticulture industry. When you combine all of that with great prices and beautiful plants available at convenient local sales you can see it makes sense. The next sale in your area is Easter Saturday, 3 April 10am to 3pm at the Auckley Parish Centre, Main St, Auckley. Refreshments in aid of church funds.

Your Questions Answered... Q. How often do dogs and cats need de-fleaing and worming? Anna from Hatfield A. Most cats and dogs will get fleas at some point. Fleas cannot live on humans but can cause distress to your animal, as well as skin problems. I would advise treating monthly with a good flea preparation such as Advantage. This involves using a pipette that is applied to the back of the neck. Worming should be carried out every three months. Worms rarely cause visible illness but still pose a health risk to more than just your dog as they could also harm your family, other people and animals. Worming treatments come in various forms, the most popular being tablets for dogs and spot-on pipettes for cats.

Q &A with

Q. My dog has one nail that grows and falls off every time. I wondered why this happens and what can be done to prevent it? Debbie from Hatfield.

Send us your questions

A. Weak breaking nails can be caused by infections in the nail beds, particularly fungal infections. Other causes could be nutritional or if a nail is deformed in some way causing it to be weak at the base. When a nail breaks off it exposes the sensitive nail bed which

could get infected if left unprotected so I would advise that your dog is checked by a qualified veterinary surgeon. Rebecca Aldren Practice Partner at Vets4Pets Doncaster.

Your concerns are our priorities! Did you know that every community in Doncaster has a team dedicated to policing your neighbourhood? Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) were introduced two years ago to provide a local policing service in the heart of communities. The teams were set up in partnership and consist of police officers and council staff, who work with other agencies to focus on the needs of the local communities in Doncaster. The SNT’s hold regular monthly community meetings and invite you, the community, to have your say and express any concerns or issues you have in your neighbourhood. At Cantley and Bessacarr‘s SNT community meeting, concerns were raised about vandals repeatedly damaging gravestones at the Rose Hill cemetery in Cantley. In a bid to stop these vandals, the SNT put on extra high-visibility patrols in the area. The people responsible were thought to be young people who were walking through the cemetery on their way home from school. Officers carried out enquiries in local schools. They gathered evidence and made regular visits to the cemetery. Through the information collected by the SNT, two local boys were identified as being responsible. The 11 and 12-year-old were spoken to by officers and were given a warning for criminal damage. Since then there have been no further incidents of criminal damage reported in the cemetery. PC Jackie Cawley said: ―This issue was a priority for the SNT due to the frequency of the damage and the impact of these crimes in the community. I am pleased that we were able to catch the vandals and put a stop to this.‖ To find out more about your Safer Neighbourhood Team call 01302 385338 or visit www.southyorks.police.co.uk and enter your postcode.

Free Laptop & Web Access Home Access PC/Internet Grant The government's made a grant of up to £528 available for low income families with children living in England; it's targeted at those without access to the internet. Depending on your need you can get up to £528 to spend on a computer (laptop, desktop, netbook and one year‘s web access). Yet you cannot go anywhere, it's only retailers that operate the scheme, though these include mainstream providers such as Comet, Phones4u and Misco.

Who is eligible? You need children in years 3 to 9. This will normally mean ages 7 to 14. It‘s for families with lower incomes. There are a number of tests for this, generally speaking if your child qualifies for free school meals or you receive income support, income-based JSA, child tax credit plus an income lower than £16,040, it's worth checking out. While the scheme is targeted at those who either don‘t have a computer or don‘t have web access, there are only limited checks done on that, though it is important people don‘t abuse the system. How many people can get it? The scheme is due to run for the next 18 months but there is a maximum of 270,000 grants available, one per household. There are currently no plans to extend it across the rest of the UK.

How to apply? Call 0333 200 1004 or check details at Home Access.

Spring is now upon us and the grass is beginning to grow more quickly. Here Chris from GreenThumb offers some tips as we begin to think about that first cut of the year.

Have your mower serviced Now is an ideal time to get your mower serviced and ready for the task ahead. Most importantly, the blade must be sharp and adjusted correctly. In general a blade should be changed or sharpened at least once per season. When cut with a sharp blade grass heals very quickly keeping it healthy and maintaining its lush green colour. A blunt or wrongly adjusted blade will bruise the grass making it susceptible to disease and will turn the tips brown leaving a discoloured lawn.

Some mowing tips 

For the first cut raise the mower blades to just ‗top‘ the grass. Cutting too low will stress the grass and set it back just when you want to encourage it.

Try not to cut more than one third of the total height of the grass plant in one go.

Never cut your lawn less than 25mm (1 inch). Cutting the lawn very short does not prevent grass from growing quickly and it can encourage lawn diseases, moss and weed growth.

Always try to remove grass clippings from the lawn – clippings encourage lawn thatch on which moss will thrive.

Local History and Country Notes

34 Springwood Close, Branton, Doncaster, DN3 3UD. Tel: 01302 534959 E.Mail: briantansey@tiscali.co.uk Well for many of us this was our very first white Christmas, and a really fantastic experience for so many children, but a real pain to many of the older generation who found themselves confined to their homes. But it has to be said that such conditions often bring out the best in human nature. Many older local people have told me of the kindness of some of their younger neighbours who helped clear paths and helped out with their shopping needs. Well done to all those who put themselves out for others in our local villages. Some local snow scenes to remind us of the Christmas period taken by Maureen Brint, taken in Auckley, on Common Lane and Spey Drive.

Many children took the opportunity of enjoying the snowy conditions whilst their Schools were closed down due to it. As did Rachel Gane seen here below in the Black Carr Plantation at Branton. Some time ago I asked our readers if any one could tell us what the pulley type wheel presently hanging on the ceiling of the Restaurant in the Eagle and Child in Auckley, had been used for. Malcolm Kendal who lived at the pub with his family in the 1960s and 70s tells me that it was found in the roof void in 1973, and along with it was some paperwork which clearly indicated that part of the pub was originally a Bakery or Flour Mill, sadly this paperwork has gone missing. One can, I think, accept that it would not have been an actual Mill since there were two local mills, one close by on the river Torne, and of course the one that still stands at Branton. So it must have been the local Bakery. I was recently looking through some old paperwork lent to me by Terry Cooke of Auckley and came across the ‗Particulars, Plans and Conditions of Sale of the Cantley, Auckley and Armthorpe Estates‘, which has details of many local properties that were up for auction at the Danum Hotel in Doncaster on Tuesday the 11th of July in 1950. One item that struck me as of interest was the Star Inn Farm, off Whiphill Top Lane Branton, since part of that property, a cottage is presently up for sale.

500 Bunnies to run across Town Field for Children’s Charity on Easter Weekend The event, dubbed ―Doncaster Bunny Run‖, will take place on Saturday 3 rd April at 10.00 am. Up to 500 participants, dressed as bunnies will complete a one mile race in support of South Yorkshire Children‘s Charity, SAFE@LAST (www.safe@last.org.uk). The event is being organised by local recruitment agency, Austin Banks. SAFE@LAST works to help children and young people who are at risk through running away. It aims to intervene to protect them from what they are potentially running towards and what they are running away from. The service was set up in 1998 to support the 1 in 9 children in South Yorkshire that are affected. Since 2005, the charity has worked with over 4000 young people and provides the only secure refuge outside London for under 16 year olds. The proceeds from the Bunny Run will be used to help SAFE@LAST launch its preventative education program in Doncaster – a program which has already been successfully rolled out in Rotherham. A key part of the education work is the promotion of the charity‘s 24 hour helpline number at local schools - a confidential service which allows young people to discuss their problems and where appropriate access a trained project worker to help them resolve their issue around running away. Event organiser, James Squires of Austin Banks Ltd, states “Having seen SAFE@LAST in action at the Lifewise Centre in Magna, I was disappointed to learn that Doncaster schools were not yet involved and decided to help SAFE@LAST promote its services in the town. The Bunny Run will be the first of two events this year – a family, fun event with an Easter theme where participants can enjoy a one mile fun run, food, drink, entertainment and competitions. Our aim is to attract 500 participants and for each of them to raise a minimum of £10 in sponsorship. As well as raising funds we hope to highlight the benefits of the preventative education work to the relevant authorities in Doncaster. Later in the year, we are planning a white collar boxing event where MDs of Doncaster companies will go head to head in the ring”.

The South Yorkshire Charity Ploughing Match is being held on Sat 27th and Sun 28th March 2010. It is a charity event raising funds for the British National Ploughing Match being held in Lincoln next October. The event will be held at Lindholme (the old airfield behind Lindholme Prison) by kind permission of HM Prison Service Lindholme & Ken & David Chappell and over 100 ploughmen, including previous National, European and World Champions, are expected each day, with horses, vintage tractors and modern equipment. David Chappell is celebrating 50 years of competing in ploughing competitions by organising a weekend of events. He won his first contest in October1960 and has had 1st places every year since and has represented England at the World Contest on 3 occasions.

At the contest, ploughmen must plough 1/2 acre in 4 hours, the judges will look for straight, level furrows with all the stubble buried to achieve a clean level seedbed for the next crop and all the trash buried and sealed firmly in to prevent the carry over of weeds and diseases. A well ploughed field needs less fertiliser, less chemicals and uses less fuel to achieve a better crop, than a poorly ploughed field. The plough was invented 4000 years ago and has been gradually improved and ploughmen at this event will demonstrate the ancient art of using a plough to create the perfect seedbed. For more information or to obtain an entry form please contact David Chappell on 01302 840098/07703500412 or email alchappell@hotmail.co.uk

Take one shirt... I know, I know, I keep going on about how much a simple white shirt forms a key part of your wardrobe, but this season it is going to be massive with every style imaginable available in the stores. So, if you haven’t already invested in one, here are 10 ways to wear it:

 

Jeans, blazer and loafers (maybe add a little neck scarf).

Wear tucked in to a stone coloured pencil or straight skirt with a tan belt and some neutral heeled pumps. Add a statement necklace and a big clutch for a lunch or dinner date.

Pop it under a tank top with boot cut trousers and add a narrow belt and a spotted scarf for French chic.

Try it with a white vest underneath and some white drill trousers, add an animal print belt and some wedges. Keep jewellery simple in one colour, silver or gold.

Wear a longer shirt open over your swimwear or fasten a couple of buttons and add a narrow gold belt, just below the bustline. Wear with your straw hat and gold flatties for a ‗Riviera‘ look.

Wear some wide leg navy trousers and a striped cardigan for a nautical look. Or, add a striped vest under the shirt, with a red belt.

Wearing a skirt or trousers, keep the top half white – either the shirt on its own or worn with the white top underneath and then pop on layers of beads to add colour.

Simple but effective – understated black Capri pants, black ballet pumps and your white shirt tucked in with the collar slightly turned up. A string of pearls or similar and a nice statement bag.

Try wearing your shirt under your classic shift dress for a fresh approach to business dressing. This can be layered with a cardigan if it is cold, or a long strand of beads to add some colour.

Open down to the waist, with a camisole underneath and worn with jeans and ballet pumps. Roll up the sleeves, add a statement cuff and some earrings and a nice tote bag.

Don‘t forget, you can wear any style shirt in a number of ways – it really is the most versatile of garments. If it is really fitted it can almost be used as a little jacket and if it is really loose then it can almost be worn as a tunic top over leggings. Just think outside the box a little and have fun wearing it!! You know you want to. Images supplied by Marks and Spencer and Accessorise (PR Shots)

News from Auckley School

Well, what a wintery start we had to the ‘Spring’ term! Hopefully the second half term will be a bit warmer and we can have some pictures of fun in the sun instead! Theatre Company visit school Key Stage 2 enjoyed an afternoon in the Wild West when Quantum Theatre Company came in to perform The Countback Kid. The play had a mathematical theme and the children had fun joining in to help solve the clues to find the missing bullion before the baddies. Sharing Assemblies Year 3/4 held a very interesting assembly where they shared all the work they‟d been doing about World War 2. This topic formed the basis for learning across the whole curriculum and the children shared some fantastic work including writing about Ann Frank, 3D air raid shelters, gas masks and posters encouraging people to grow their own food. After showing us some examples of food rations we could see why grow your own was so popular! Year 2 also held their sharing assembly where they told us all about toys from the past. The children showed some of the toys they‟d been looking at and shared some wonderfully descriptive writing and art work about the toys.

Question Time in Year 6 (photograph below) As part of their literacy work on arguments Year 6 held a Question Time style debate on the issue of foxhunting. The panel was split into four children who supported the legalisation of foxhunting and four who opposed it, with the „TVâ€&#x; presenters inviting questions from the audience. The debate was filmed and all the children did really well, especially those in the spotlight!

News from Branton St Wilfrid’s C.E. Primary School Fund raising for the Haiti Earthquake Appeal Through the course of the school year we support the work of many worthwhile charities. So far this year we have raised money for Christian Aid following our Harvest Festival, we collected for Bluebell Wood Children‟s Hospice after our Christmas Concerts and children enjoyed dressing up for the day when we raised money for Children in Need. We wanted to play our small part in helping support the victims of the Haiti earthquake disaster. Every child who brought in a donation came into the school hall to light their own small candle. We had a lovely display of candles for our morning assembly when we thought about the suffering in Haiti, the courage of the medical teams and relief agencies working in the country and the kindness of people across the world who have given their help to the situation by making donations. We raised an amazing £597.06!! As I was helping children light their candles many of the children told me that their donation was from their pocket money or birthday money, so we are very proud to have such kind and thoughtful children in our school. Puppet making and drama day in Class 3 This half term Class 3 have been learning about Ancient Greece. In Literacy this has involved learning about the features of a myth, reading different myths and using this as the starting point for the children‟s own writing. Heracles, the son of Zeus visited Class 3 (time travel is one of the amazing features of Branton St Wilfrid‟s!) to tell the story of his Ten Labours. Class 3 then had a very busy day as each child designed and created their own puppet to help tell the story. After rehearsing their performance Class 3 shared the puppet show of Heracles and his Ten Labours with the children in the Infant classes. Our visitors commented on the enthusiasm and interest of Class 3 during the day, so well done to everyone! Class 2 find out more about the Great Fire of London On Tuesday 26 January, Class 2 enjoyed a History Role Play Day focusing on The Great Fire of London. Sir William Petty arrived from the past and vividly shared with the children the story of how the fire spread and the destruction it caused. He worked with the children all day to help

them understand aspects of The Great Fire, and used practical role play activities including making human bucket chains to put out the fire, and acting out scenes to show how the fire spread so quickly. The children also began to use the key factual information, and tried to plan designs for the re-building of London. Cross Country Competition Children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 attended the Pyramid Cross Country Running Competition at the end of January. We competed against Auckley, Hayfield Lane and Finningley schools and were kindly hosted by The Hayfield School. We had a super turn out of 37 children. It was a very chilly late afternoon (perhaps making us run that bit faster!). We had some personal triumphs and an overall placing in the steam event of joint 2nd with Auckley. Well done to all the competitors from all the schools. Thanks to families and friends for supporting this event. School Council Visit to the Mansion House The School Council visited the Mansion House in Doncaster to find out about the history of the building and what it is used for today. First we went into the Council Chamber where we elected a mayor, deputy mayor and chief executive - (Owen, Eleanor and Brooklyn). The rest of the Council had to sit in the member‟s seats and ask them questions, using the microphone system. They soon had to “think on their feet” as they were asked questions such as “Should we have homework in school?” Next we visited the salon where we looked at portraits of the royal family and the last mayor to live in the Mansion House. After that we entered the ballroom and discovered how ladies wearing crinoline dresses had an entire settee to themselves during balls and how they were entertained with chamber music. We then went onto the landing to look at the beautiful Peace window and to find out more about the history of our town, including the famous locomotives which were built here. Finally it was time to visit the old kitchen, where refreshments were served. We were each given a pencil, postcard and badge as souvenirs of our visit. We learned lots of interesting facts about the Mansion House and how our council meetings in Doncaster are organised. Best Wishes EA Crayton Head teacher

Doncaster Advanced Motorists Surviving Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) - a guide for law-abiding drivers. Dear Readers, Police using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems may pull over drivers who consider themselves law-abiding citizens alongside hardcore criminal drivers. Number-plates obscured by dirt or with incorrect letter and number spacing, that can‘t be read by ANPR camera, may be flagged up as suspect registrations and police sent in pursuit. Number-plates that have been stolen or cloned by criminals and used to evade prosecution for speeding, illegal parking, insurance and other offences may also land the registered car owners in trouble. And then there may be inaccuracies and delays in the data used to identify rogue cars. For their part, drivers need to appreciate that the need to keep their number-plates street legal has never been so great, and that failure to do so is more likely to bring prosecution for a Construction and Use offence. "Whereas, in the past, police officers may have unofficially turned a blind eye to number-plates covered in mud or customised registrations unless they needed to stop a car, ANPR may mean that the days of the fancy or dirty plate are numbered. "ANPR helps police to catch illegal vehicles and drivers together at the roadside, whereas clamping and removing rogue cars, although taking them out of circulation, rarely catches up with offenders who simply buy another cheap vehicle. However, there will be other drivers, whose number-plates are D.S.A. A.D.I. obscured or cloned, who may be caught in the net." From the point of view of police and other FEMALE INSTRUCTOR enforcement agencies, that any inaccuracies in data PATIENT AND FRIENDLY records held by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing TUITION Agency (DVLA) and any time lag in recording PASS PLUS REGISTERED changes in motorist‘s circumstances may end up with THEORY TUITION drivers being caught by ANPR. DOOR TO DOOR SERVICE "Sometimes, wrong information is fed on to the DVLA database by car owners, who may make CATERING FOR ALL LEVELS OF DRIVER FROM mistakes or by criminals who try to create a false BEGINNER TO QUALIFIED record. With so many sources of data, such as from REFRESHER COURSES FOR THE NERVOUS TO post offices, MoT test centres, insurance companies MOTORWAY DRIVING SKILLS and people who have sold cars privately, it is critical DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR that it is all timely and accurate now that STUDENTS AND BLOCK BOOKINGS enforcement increasingly hinges on these records.

I scratched a Car!!! No, not me! But as we‘re in Lent, that time of reflection before Easter, I thought I‘d share a story that I came across that involves a scratched car. It perhaps offers us a new perspective. I was about 17 at the time. I finally was able to drive a car. I took my mum to work in a car that a friend had lent her for the day. It was a manual gear change. After dropping off my mum my small cousin jumps to the front seat while eating crisps. The driveway to the house we lived in was a slope so I decide to hit the accelerator and try Revd, Neil Redeyoff with his family to make it up in 3rd gear, Big mistake. The car stalls on us and thanks to gravity, we start going down the slope backwards! My lack of experience was evident as I didn‘t think to yank on the hand break as the main breaks stopped working when the engine died. With a main road on my left and two connecting roads right behind me everything turned to slow motion. My cousin was still eating his crisps, I was pale as snow and in my head a million and one things crossed my mind. Thankfully a wall managed to step in. It scratched the right side of the car but brought us to a complete stop. Frightened and thankful that no car had showed up to do the job, I turned to check on my cousin, and with his eyes nearly popping out of their sockets, he was still eating crisps, at a much more rapid pace of course, he was ok. I turned on the car, drove up the slope, parked the car and left for work frightened and worried like never before. I spent the whole day scared, worried, thinking constantly of the mess I had made. Finally, the time came to face my fear, telling my mother. As I walked up that slope once again I was able to see the car and the scratch. At the same time my mother comes out of the house. She looks at me, not with anger, but with compassion. Having lived longer she wisely said these words: "It‘s ok son, that‘s what money is for. We‘ll get it fixed!" That‘s it! I believe God has a better perspective as well. Our worst struggles are, in his view, nothing worse than, a reparable scratch on a car. Why not speak to Him today? Blessings
