Members of Axholme Camera Club did not have to venture far to find subjects to photograph for one of the recent competitions. They were only allowed to venture two miles from home. Encouraging people to look at their locality in a new light, the entries were many and varied, providing the judge with food for thought. A Landscape or Seascape competition produced images from far afield. Mick Revill of Crowle entered Sunset in South Africa, Dave Neale Spitzbergen and George Fiddler one from the USA . The judge, Ernie Jackson of Doncaster, had some difficult decisions to make. The winners, however, were Andrew Kershaw , with 4 prints in the ratings, including the winner in the monochrome section, and Jean Goodburne of Hatfield, winner of the colour section. Peter Webster, Judy Newton, and Lynda Ulyett also scored 19s.

Due to adverse weather conditions early in the year, many of the postponed programmes have been rearranged for the Temple View by Peter Webster last few weeks of the summer. The Audio Visual presentations, pictures to music, was well supported with many first timers showing their work alongside some excellent work from the more experienced, although it was relative new-comer Jean Goodburne who yet again showed her rapidly developing talent with her very technical offering 'Birds'. It is time for the Battles once more, when member clubs of the Lincolnshire Photographic Association go head to head. Axholme hosted their first round at home, where their opponents will be Grimsby and Ashby. Grimsby won the round with 273 points, Axholme were second with 261 and Ashby gained 239. The next round for Axholme will be at Cleethorpes where they take on Cleethorpes Camera Club and North East Lincs Photographic Society. Three members have gained entry to a biennial Exhibition held at Grimsby. David Neale, Andrew Kershaw and Geoge Fiddler have a total of nine prints accepted. A total of 100 prints are chosen from all the entries to go forward to the competition. Photo shoot trips are always subject to the vagaries of the weather, but members may be seen out and about in the coming months wielding their cameras in a variety of places locally. In inclement weather, indoor discussions, workshops etc will operate.

The Isle of Axholme

Where You Live

Your Local History

Adapted by Anthony Catherall

THE DRAINAGE OF THE ISLE OF AXHOLME The years between 1626 and 1719 were a time of trouble and violence in the Isle of Axholme. In 1626 Cornelius Vermuyden was granted the opportunity to drain Hatfield Levels (or Chase) that was the Kings land. At the time King Charles1 was short of money and Parliament refused to give him any except under certain conditions. He granted Vermuyden permission to drain Hatfield Chase. To be successful the surrounding lowland also had to be drained; thus the western part of the Isle of Axholme was included. The King, Vermuyden and the local tenants were each to receive one third of the drained land. At the time before the drainage the Isle was surrounded by water with the River Trent to the East, River Dun (Don) to the north, the River Torne to the west with the River Idle to both south and west. The rivers meandered fairly freely constantly changing their beds. In winter much of the land was flooded. Quite large boats could sail between Wroot, Haxey Carr and the River Trent. The low lying watery area were full of fish and fowl including Herons, Bitterns, Storks, Cranes, Swans, Ducks, Geese, Curlews, Snipes, Redshanks, Plover, Waterhen, and Teal that were of obvious importance to the locals. Between Hatfield and Westwoodside there was about three feet of water all year round flooding about 60.000 acres. In summer some of the less flooded land dried sufficiently to be used as common pastureland. Their use was protected by the Deed of 1359 by John de Mowbray. Peat was cut for local use and some for sale in York that was said to depend on Axholme peat, as London did on Newcastle coal. Some attempts at artificial drainage had been made before Vermuyden. In the reign of Edward 111, commissioners were set up to build a channel to relieve the waters of the Idle and maintain it. Bykersdike was dug from the Isle to Stockwith to do this. Later in the reign of Henry V, commissioners cut Mare Dyke and made a sluice to try to control the waters of the Dun and short cut the waters to the Trent at Luddington. Snow Sewer and Hekdyke were also pre-Vermuyden attempts at Drainage. Vermuyden agreed to drain the area in 1626. Of the drained land the local people were to receive one third, the King one third, and Vermuyden and his shareholders called Participants were to receive one third. The work was started in 1627 and finished in 1629. About 50 Dutch workmen and Dutch equipment was used. They set up their camp at Santoft. Vermuyden’s task was to drain Hatfield Chase that was Crown land and the overflowing lands surrounding it including the western part of the Isle of Axholme. The meandering Idle River in the south was cut off at Idle Stop and the waters directed down Bykersdyke to the River Trent at Stockwith. The Dun River’s northwest branch was cut near Snaith and a five and a half mile drain called Dutch River was cut to Goole for this water. The River Torne was restricted into the new Torne river channel from near Wroot to come out to the Trent at Althorpe. Due north from Idle Stop was cut the new Idle Drain crossing the River Torne at Tunnel Pits as far as Dirtness. Here it ran parallel to a similar drain from Tudworth due west. They ran side by side to the Trent at Althorpe. High embankments were built on the right hand bank of the River Dun and on the north bank of Bykersdyke. The work was done in two years and cost £400,000 – a vast sum in those days. Continued month 10 next Please mention

St Norbert’s Catholic Primary School Newsletter The Summer Term is flying by and the end of term is fast approaching. The children have been out and about this term with visits to Magna, Waters Edge Nature Reserve, Cusworth Hall, Cleethorpes, Normanby Hall, North Lincolnshire Museum, St Bede‘s, Scunthorpe Choir Festival and the PGL residential visit in the holiday. Our Nursery children have enjoyed their first school visit to a reading morning held at Crowle Library. The whole school also experienced a morning of Indian dance and storytelling followed by Indian themed dance and music workshops which were very enjoyable. Our school Sports Day takes place on 22 June which is being held in conjunction with a Transition in Schools event. A selection of agencies will be in school to offer advice and assistance to parents. These will include Kidslincs, Family Links, the School Nurse, School‘s Catering Service and representatives from the emergency services. Some of the children and parents from Classes 3 and 4 have also volunteered to take part in a ―Litterpick‖ outside the school premises organised through Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire. This term has also seen the start of our new parent and toddler group, ‗Shining Stars‘. Full details of this group can be found in the advertisement opposite. At the other end of our school, we shall soon be saying farewell to the Year 6 leavers and wish them well in their new schools from September.

Althorpe and Keadby Community Nature Area The Friends of Althorpe and Keadby Primary School is a Registered Charity and are currently working on trying to secure funding for their big plans to help improve the school‘s outdoor environment. The project is to develop an area of land between the school and the river bank together with parts of the school field and playground. These areas will be developed with local community involvement for use by the local community, other schools and community groups. The land will be developed to incorporate a wildlife area, encouraging a natural environment, an outdoor classroom, a covered area, a picnic area, a meadow, a herb garden and sensory walk, and a creative area incorporating willow dens, hillocks and staging. This will benefit the whole community in the following ways:

An improved community space for the local population - for use by the residents of Keadby and surrounding areas, Youth Club, Street Sports, local schools, cubs etc.

 

A community which has a better understanding of caring for the environment and sustainability.

Creating eco systems for wildlife to flourish. A well cared for environment for the local Isle community to use. If you can help with the Friends of Althorpe and Keadby Primary School‘s fundraising efforts, please contact Kathryn Russell ( To help in our funding bid we would also appreciate letters of support from local businesses/residents which you can send to the following address: Friends of Althorpe and Keadby Primary School Station Road Keadby Scunthorpe North Lincolnshire DN17 3BN

July 10th is officially Rescue Day!

This day could not occur without the tremendous work carried out by the Rescue Day Committee and the generosity of the many helpers and sponsors along with our Host who have contributed and continue to assist in making Rescue Day one of the largest of its kind in both the UK and Europe. Our primary aim today is to bring together members of the Emergency Services from within our region and neighbouring regions / Counties along with other voluntary and Aid organisations in order to provide our communities with information and demonstration in the promotion of Safer Roads and Waterside Safety within our region and to the wider communities also. It is our intention to deliver this by way of Road Traffic Collision Demonstrations, Water Rescue Demonstrations along with educational trailers and stands from the Emergency Services and Aid organisations. Our chosen charity for this year‘s event is Help for Heroes and it is hoped that along with the generosity of sponsors we can raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause. Finally, I hope as many local people can come to the event and make it a very successful day.

North Axholme School Newsletter ‘The Times Spelling Bee’ Competition On Thursday 1st April four of our Year 7 students (Alexandra Bint, Katie Chester, Cameron Jarman & Joshua Broadbent set off for ‗The Times Spelling Bee‘ local heats at Cineworld, Hull. The four students had been chosen as they had come out as the four top spellers in a spelling competition held at school. Left to right Alexandra Bint, Cameron Jarman,

The four students took part in a Spelling play-off where Joshua Broadbent & Katie Chester individual contestants accumulate points for their team. After a short break of popcorn and drink students then take part in a Quick-fire challenge, this is where each team has two minutes to spell out as many words as possible and the team can choose, easy, medium or hard words. The students tactically decided to choose easy words which led them to win the local heats. They went home with a goody bag and medal and very proud of their achievement. The semi-finals took place at Cineworld, Hull on Tuesday 18 th May where the competition took the same format as before but unfortunately the students didn‘t make it through to the finals in London. All the students received another goody bag and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We plan to host a ‗Times Spelling Bee‘ event at North Axholme School. This would involve Year 6 pupils from our partner primary schools. Alexandra, Katie, Cameron & Joshua have offered to help out and mentor the pupils sharing their tips for success. Year 11 Prom

Year 11 students celebrated the end of their compulsory education with a Prom held at Doncaster Rugby Club. Almost 100 staff and students attended, arriving in style in everything from an articulated lorry to a tandem. The evening included a formal 3-course meal, disco and photographer taking individual and group photos!! Behaviour was exemplary and various staff at the Rugby Club were kind enough to comment at the end of the evening on how polite and well behaved the students had been. Many thanks go to those who assisted with the organisation of the Prom.

Althorpe and Keadby School Newsletter Teachers Visit China After days of rush and panic, Mrs Johnson and I finally arrived in China. It was very surreal being on the other side of the world—going to be bed as the children at A&K were all having last breaktime. We were welcomed like Queens by Mr Li (the head teacher) and the staff/children at Zhongshan Centre primary school. There were children holding banners and umbrellas for us everywhere. The children spoke very good English, especially in Y6, where a pupil called Amanda translated for us. We gave talks about our school and played games like ‗Simon Says‘ to help them learn the parts of the body. We also taught them a traditional country dance which Mr Li liked so much that, 2 days later, 60 children performed the dance for us on the playground, it was magnificent. Last Saturday, there was a family sports day and 100 children performed the dance for their parents. How fantastic! We also taught a Y2 class our ‗Wake up!‘ song. They loved it and have since used it in an English singing competition that they won. Everyday, we tried new foods. There were lots of different kinds of fish, as Dalian is by the sea. We drank many different types of tea at a tea ceremony and have brought back some for the children to try. One night, we went to Mr Li‘s house to make dumplings with his family. We had a huge feast and enjoyed singing songs around his dining table.

Crowle Colts Junior Football Club supports charity KitAid We have all faced the dilemma about what to do with the clothes that we no longer wear. Should we leave them to fester in the wardrobe, perhaps throw them away or maybe find somebody else that can use them? Now imagine that same quandary for a football club, with nearly 200 football shirts, shorts and socks. Over the years, Crowle Colts Junior Football Club has been fortunate to have been supported by local, generous sponsors, who have helped to regularly provide the players with new football kits. As fantastic as this has been, the old kits have been left sad and lonely, waiting on the substitute‘s bench for the day when once again they could play the beautiful game! That is until now; Crowle Colts have thrown their support behind a campaign to recycle no longer wanted football kit, which will benefit children and adults in some of the poorest parts of the World. The kit is being donated to charity KitAid, which has Graham Taylor OBE as its Patron, and last year sent 750 boxes of kit (27,500 shirts/kits) to 35 different countries. KitAid, a charity created in 1998, donates unwanted football shirts to children and adults across Africa, India, Eastern Europe and other developing countries and was set up by Derrick Williams, a passionate football fan. When he visited Tanzania as a volunteer with Water Aid (the water and sanitation development charity that helps people in Africa and Asia, to bring safe, clean water supplies to their villages), he saw how they had little opportunity or equipment to play the game they loved. Children often played barefooted with a football made out of tied plastic bags. A picture taken of a boy wearing a ragged Liverpool shirt was the spark that created KitAid, as everyone who saw it wanted to help. Initially one box of kit was collected from friends and colleagues within Three Valleys Water and this was sent to one of the villages that Derrick had visited. From that point KitAid has snowballed with over 100,000 shirts being received by people across the world. Crowle Colts have a long held philosophy that all children should have the opportunity to play football if they want to, and that the sport is there to be enjoyed by all. It is therefore fitting that less fortunate children should benefit by using unused Crowle football kits. If any other sports clubs want to support kit aid then they can find out more at or email

The Beautiful Game As I write this, the sun is shining but more importantly, South Africa has just drawn with Mexico in the first game of the Football World Cup. By the time you read this, you will either be enjoying a feast of football or vowing that you never want to see a football let alone a whole football match ever again! It‘s a bit like that with the Church. Depending on your experience of Church in the past, you either go week by week or ignore the place altogether. But just supposing that England gets into the final, would those of you who have had too much football be tempted to watch and celebrate? Or if you are really opposed to football might you not be tempted back for a quick burst of ―Match of the Day‖ on a cold winter‘s evening? Whatever the weather, the Church is there for you. No matter how long it has been since you came to Church, ‗the Lord of the Church‘ is waiting to greet you. Come back and meet Him, any Sunday, at a Church near you. Rev Timothy Buckley Rector of The Crowle Group of Parishes and of St Oswald’s Church Althorpe with Keadby
