AXHOLME NORTH POLICE REPORT St Oswalds Church Grounds, Church Street and Manor Park/Johnsons Lane, Crowle – Youths congregating and causing a nuisance to local residents. St Oswalds Church Grounds Church Street and Manor Park Johnsons Lane Crowle are two locations close to each other and have been grouped together as one priority. Update: - This priority has been upgraded from last month‘s PCSO 7889 PCSO 7576 PC1717 number two priority to this month‘s number one priority. Wendy Frear Paul Fearon Graham Godley During the month of July there have been eleven calls for service to these locations. Ten of these calls related to church and grounds and the other to youths refusing to leave Manor Park as the committee were trying to secure the playing field. Of the ten calls to the church, eight were relating to youths playing football on the grass mainly after tea on an evening and the other two to reports of criminal damage to a grill over a window and to a CCTV camera covering the back of the premises. The Neighbourhood Team have spent extra time patrolling the area and speaking to any youths in the locality explaining the concerns of the residents. The youths generally accept what is said, not realising they were causing any problems, complaining that there is nowhere suitable in Crowle for them to gather and socialise. They have been advised to get together and approach the relevant agencies and voice their views and put forward any sensible requests. They have also been made aware of the groups which have been formed to promote more facilities in the area, such as the Crowle and District Sport, Play and Active Recreation Group. This advice appears to be falling on deaf ears as not one person attended at the Target football training session on the field at Crowle Primary School on Friday 22nd July and only a few attended at a meeting at the youth club regarding the provision of local facilities for residents including the young. Enquiries are still on going with regard to the damage to the church. Several teenagers have been interviewed regarding their part in causing the damage and Police action will be taken against them when all of the enquiries are completed. The Neighbourhood team are looking for the support of parents to address these community concerns with their children, and for parents to take responsibility for knowing where they are going with their friends and how they are behaving. Potts Lane Car Park, Crowle – Anti-social behaviour and Vehicle nuisance.

Update: - The temporary mobile CCTV camera has now been installed by the North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods Teams and is recording incidents in the car park at Potts Lane. The camera has reduced calls for service to the Police and so the location has been down graded to this month‘s number two priority. During July there has been only one call to the Police which was directly related to the car park. This was regarding a complaint of noise from youths gathering there playing music in their vehicles but the group had moved on prior to Police arrival. There have been several other calls from Crowle residents relating to the manner of driving of vehicles at various other locations in the town and it is suspected that these vehicles and occupants are the ones now being displaced from the car park. The drivers are being spoken to and action is being taken when offences can be proved. Three more Section 59 warnings have been issued under Police Reform Act to young drivers and should they be seen to be driving in a careless and anti-social manner during the next twelve months their vehicle will be seized by the Police and they will be reported for summons for the offences committed. The Neighbourhood Policing Team frequently patrols the area and although often attend within minutes of incidents being reported, the alleged offenders have moved on and the car park is all quiet. The Police Roads Policing Department have also been tasked with patrolling the area and to deal with any traffic offences.

Traffic Offences = A male has been reported for summons for traffic offences at Keadby and will be appearing at North Lincolnshire Magistrates Court at Scunthorpe. Assault = A male has been given a Police caution for an assault at Eastoft. Manner of Driving = Three males have been spoken to regarding their manner of driving in the area and have been issued with warnings that should they re-offend during the next twelve months their vehicles will be seized by the Police and the offences dealt with by the courts. Drink Driving = A female has been arrested for the offence of drink driving between Eastoft and Crowle and has been released on Police Bail whilst enquiries are continuing. Assault = A female has been given a Police caution for an assault at Crowle. Update Arson with intent to endanger life = A female is still on bail to Grimsby Crown Court for the offence of arson to a house at Crowle with intent to endanger life. Possession of cannabis = A male is being dealt with for the possession of cannabis. Walkabout Police Surgery = 5th September 2011 between 2pm and 3pm on Station Road area of Keadby to encourage community engagement. The Neighbourhood team endeavour to fulfil the above dates, but please note that there may be occasions when due to other policing requirements we are unable to carry out the walkabout surgeries.

Your Local History

Adapted by Anthony Catherall



The population of Epworth rose gradually during the first half of the 19 th century and then fell back slightly until the middle of the 20th century when it started to rise. The following table shows the population figures: Years 1821 – 1763, 1831 – 1825, 1841 – 1895, 1851 – 1944, 1891 – 1903, 1931 – 1795, 1951 – 1907, 1961 – 1975, 1971 – 2250, 1981 – 3094, 1991 – 3359. Rural craft industries were very much in evidence. Here are some further figures for employment in the parish of Epworth: People employed by trade in years: - 1835 – 1861 - 1901 Blacksmith 3 4 2 Boot & Shoe Makers 5 8 3 Joiners/Carpenters 4 6 3 Linen Weavers 6 4 5 Linen Drapers 6 4 5 (including Milliners & Drapers Sacking manufacturers 1 1 0 Saddlers 2 2 2 Millers 4 5 3 Tailors 7 7 5 Straw Hat Manufacturers 1 3 0 Wheelwrights 3 7 3 Rope makers 1 1 1 Basket Makers 1 1 0 Nail Makers 1 1 0 Watch & Clock makers 2 3 3 Malsters 3 2 0 Farmers ? 107 82 Obviously many of these industries were allied to the farming enterprises. Linen Weavers, sacking manufacturers, millers, straw-hat makers, rope and basket makers, and malsters used agricultural products. Others such as wheelwrights, blacksmiths and saddlers depending on agriculture using horsepower. In the 20th century manufacturing methods and agricultural traction had changed thus bringing the demise of many of these craft industries.

The Trials and Triumphs of Life In recent days, all of us have seen images of violence on the streets of some of our biggest cities. More than once, I have thanked God for the relative peace of living in rural Lincolnshire. I say ‗relative peace‘ because we are not immune from crime. So much lead has been taken from Church roofs that the insurers have fixed a maximum tariff on what they will pay out. Our architects have been looking for alternatives. Many of the Churchyards are big and open to the public, providing a place to rest, to think, to rejoice (after weddings and baptisms) to worship and to meet friends. Sadly there are a few who abuse that privilege by vandalising the building and intimidating the neighbours. But far more importantly, the Church is about worshipping God and celebrating the good times in life. In September and October, most Churches and Chapels will hold a Harvest Festival. In addition, St Oswald‘s Church Althorpe holds a regular coffee morning every Wednesday from 10am. St Oswald‘s Crowle has ―Tea at 2‖ on the first Wednesday of each month from 2pm. Lots of opportunities to meet with your friends in a peaceful setting with luscious refreshments! Watch out for more publicity in your village for your special events. Paul, the writer of many letters in the New Testament, told his readers to ―Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I say, rejoice.‖ May that be the hallmark of our lives too. Rev Timothy Buckley Priest in Charge of the Crowle Group of Parishes Rector of the Belton Group of Parishes

North Axholme School News Year 9 Creative Partnerships Sculpture Project Late last year, just before Christmas, Year 9‘s first started a Creative Partnerships Sculpture Project. This involved working with Jim Bond who is a sculptor that works with copper and steel. The students split up into groups of four, and worked together to come up with one design to make using steel and copper, and to display it in front of the school building. Once everyone had come up with their ideas, and had put it all onto paper, Jim chose the people that he wanted to work with, and then he picked three designs out of all the classes that he thought were the best. Once he‘d chosen them, an assembly was held in the hall for the Year 9‘s, and each group that had been chosen pitched their idea for everyone else, so that they could vote for what they thought was the best design that should be displayed outside the school. I interviewed the organiser of the project, Mrs. O‘ Horan, and this is what she said, ―I think the student‘s designs right at the beginning were really good, they came up with some really imaginative ideas. The visits to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park we went to were really successful and inspirational. I also think the students responded really well to Jim Bond. I think the sculptures at the end were great, the year 9‘s worked on a very large scale and have produced something that will be with us for many years to come. I‘m glad that the students chose the winning design, and that I didn‘t because I think it would have been very hard to decide on just one. The ones that didn‘t win were very strong contenders.‖ The project came about because the school has been involved with the Creative Partnerships Change Schools Programme which has enabled us to gain funding for Arts projects, and ultimately produce art work that will stay with our school forever. Mrs Cox and Mrs O‘ Horan went to Crowle show to make the community aware of the project, and what it was about, so that more people will understand what it‘s about when they see the sculptures when they‘ve been put up in July, before the school breaks up for the summer holidays.

Market’s. A new Market Management Committee has been formed which includes a Crowle and Ealand Town Council representative acting as market liaison officer. This committee will be responsible for organising markets and events which take place in the market place. Some markets and the ‗ turning on of the Christmas lights ceremony,‘ have already taken place and provided valuable experience on which to base future events which will reflect local needs and interests. It is hoped that these occasions will not only appeal to the people of Crowle and Ealand but will also attract visitors to the community and help stimulate local business. The town has a charter allowing it to hold Monday markets and specially extended markets during specific saint‘s feast days including: ‗The Feast of St. Oswald‘ which takes place in August, and ‗The Feast of St. Martin in the Winter‘ which takes place in November. A representative from the market traders association has already carried out a survey of the market place and suggests that it could contain up to twenty stalls. The Town Council would also like to hold its Councillor Surgeries during these events in the market place so that it can get any feedback on the use of the market place or any other issues which need attention.

Strategic Plan. The council is currently working on a number of items contained within its Strategic Plan these will include work on a fully updated Emergency Plan which will put the community in a much better position to respond to the results of unusual weather conditions or any other kind of emergency. Information regarding these measures will be distributed through the community so that people are aware of what measures have been taken and their individual role in emergency proceedings. Other issues within the strategic plan include completion of the application for Quality Council accreditation, the implementation of electronic planning applications, update to the council website, and software to map building developments andmention the electoral 16 Please “The boundary. Arrow” when responding to advertisements

Town Plan Team The Town Plan is currently being researched and consultation exercises with the community have been undertaken on a number of occasions. The work is being undertaken by volunteers and involves producing a demographic profile of Crowle and Ealand and determining recommendations for future developments. The Town Plan should be completed later this year and will be made available for the public to consult.

The Lincolnshire Golf Club and Restaurant, Crowle. A Delightful Sunday lunch Experience. The winding drive (off the A161) up to the former Hirst Priory estate is flanked by green lush grass incorporating a charming cricket field on the left and fairways a little further up on the right. You then approach the car park adjoining the Lincolnshire Golf Clubhouse and within, the restaurant operated by Shane and Lesley Jarman. Shane a former winner of Britain’s Pastry Chef of the year, his wife Lesley and enthusiastic staff give you a warm welcome to their bar and restaurant. They serve food seven days a week and especially welcome not only their regular golfers but visitors from a wide area. One lady on an adjoining table Mrs Mavis Bellwood of Doncaster told me ‘I follow Shane wherever he goes’. They encourage private parties, special events and many discerning diners, all having pre-booked. We were there for Sunday Lunch in the light, airy and spacious conservatory attached to the former stables in the old walled garden of the Priory. Lesley told us that they can seat 50 covers indoors with views of the west face of the Priory through trees, the small courtyard and even the first tee of the golf course, it is very pretty indeed. On entering and being seated at our well spaced table, the first thing noticed is the two fresh roses in a vase on all of the beautifully laid tables and comfortable chairs. Lunch is served between 12pm-4.30pm, with two or three courses with a remarkable £12.00 and £15.75 price attached, incidentally no credit or debit cards are accepted. Turning over the page of the weekly changed inspired menu (all personally produced by Shane, a nice touch) one is surprised and delighted by the lunchtime fare on offer, there being six choices of starters, eight mains, and five desserts. Extra sides and main course supplements are available at a small extra cost. To start we chose the Air dried ham salad with fresh watermelon, sweet tomato & basil, and Chef‘s seafood platter with sweet chilli & sherry dressing. They were both mouth watering and most acceptable to the palette, both beautifully presented. By this stage you know you are in for a thrill, and after completing your starter you are filled with anticipation. One of our choices for main course was the Slow roasted silverside of beef accompanied by Yorkshire pudding (well done only, there is also sirloin on offer medium rare only) and Pan fried fillet of lamb, scented with Moroccan spices, sweet onion & Parma ham, served with cous cous salad this dish being unusual and enchanting, all accompanied with a tureen of fresh seasonal vegetables. I had difficulty choosing from five appealing desserts in that all the choices were to my liking; however I finally settled on the Citrus tart with plump raspberries, fruit sorbet and fresh mint. The presentation of this dish stunned me being laid on oval marble. For sure one felt relaxed and satisfied whilst dining, Lesley and her staff were most polite, attentive and not overbearing. It seemed to us that nothing was too much trouble for them and obviously they enjoyed meeting new people. I did suggest a fan might be an added welcome addition for the hotter weather being under glass. Having no previous knowledge this superb Isle of Axholme restaurant tucked away in the North Lincolnshire countryside just south of Crowle railway station, it was frankly the very best of a Sunday Lunch for anyone‘s purse. Have a look at their website or telephone Shane or Lesley on 01724 711621 for your booking. Review by Mr Anthony Catherall

A small group of media students from North Axholme School recently gave

Olympic Fairytale

up their Saturday to attend school to make two short films to enter into a competition. Film Nation: Shorts is a new UK-wide film-making competition for anyone aged 14 to 25. The winner of the competition gets their film screened as part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. They have made two small films with the help of Annabel, Florence and Naomi. One of the films made by Eleanor Coultard, Ledele McNally, Laura Clarke- Hill and Emily Clark was called ―Olympic Fairytale‖. It is about a wolf that gets beaten at sports by the old granny and Little Red Riding Hood makes fun of him. The second film made by Letitia Bolton, Rebecca Hall, Emily Clark, Eleanor Coultard, Ledele McNally and Laura Clarke-Hill was called ―The String Theory‖. This film is about people not having the courage to do things, but in the end you build up the courage to succeed. The films will be posted on the Film Nation website and they need as many people as possible to watch the video and vote for it!!! The six students worked very hard and each had a go at all the different jobs including film making, using the camera, taking photo‘s, being the director and lots more. They all really enjoyed the experience and if anyone else has a chance like this they would recommend it, as it is amazing to see how much time and effort goes into film making. Please visit and . If you watch the films, please vote and encourage others to do so. If they get enough positive feedback, they could be shown at Olympic venues next year. By Eleanor Coultard

Enterprise Week at Althorpe & Keadby Primary School Enterprise Week is an annual event at Althorpe & Keadby Primary School. During the week, we aim to teach the children about the value of money and how to handle their personal finances. We also encourage them to think about their future, what jobs they would like and the lifestyle they wish to lead. Each class has taken part in a range of activities learning about how they will earn money and the taxes they will have to pay. We promote high aspirations at our school and the children have high hopes too – they want to be the police/firemen/teachers of the future. Our main focus this year has been setting up our own businesses. Each class received a letter from ‗Lord Sugar‘ asking for an idea for a new toy or summer craze and they have been busy plotting and planning all week. They have made adverts, jingles, designs and Year 6 have even projected 3 year profits! On Friday 8th July, at 2.30pm, two local representatives (Mr Michael Steele of TVM & Mrs Kay Sotheran from the local post office) acted as our ―Dragons‖ and listened to a pitch from each class. The Dragons then judged the idea that they would most likely to invest in and rewarded the winning class (Year 1) with £100 to spend on whatever they wish.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE For 3 & 4 year old children between 8.00am & 6.00pm

Every child after their 3rd Birthday are eligible for 15 hours of free early learning education and care. We are an alternative to schools offering the same curriculum, driven by a qualified, dedicated workforce. Our child to staff ratio is lower than schools allowing more attentive care and education. Our sessions are tailored to meet the needs of parents & carers, being flexible between 8am & 6pm, Monday to Friday. Additionally after the funded sessions, wrap around care is also available should it be required. If you would like more information or have any queries, please call Lisa at Secret Garden on 01724 711223 We look forward to hearing from you!
