Epworth Primary School News Letter Ofsted say school is making good progress We have just received our latest Ofsted report following their monitoring visit near the end of last term. The Inspectors found that good progress has been made in all 5 areas. The report found that pupils‘ progress is gathering pace, standards are beginning to rise steadily and the …underperformance identified in key stage 1 is being eradicated as a result of the effective actions implemented so far.‘ The report also commented on the steps taken to ensure all safeguarding requirements are met and the pupils ‗are safe, happy and their views are listened to and taken seriously.‘ Pupils behavior remains good and ‗there is a strong sense of community throughout the school.‘ We were pleased that the hard work of everyone in school in making the improvements needed has been recognised and remain determined to continue to improve. Austerfield Residential Year 3 children had a very enjoyable taster of a residential visit staying two days and one night at the Austerfield Field Studies Centre. During our time at the centre the children learnt about rocks and soils and animal habitats. They visited a sand quarry and the ‗Animal House‘ at the centre, home of various creepy crawlies and snakes. The teachers cooked tea and breakfast with the children serving and washing up (or at least using the dishwasher). For many children it was their first time away from home but everyone had a great time and I am sure they will remember their stay for a long time as a highlight of their year. We all liked it so much that we have already booked it next year for Year 3 children. Stay and Play restarts ‗Little Treasures‘ Stay and Play has started again in the Children‘s Centre from 1:00 – 2:30pm. This is for pre-school children and parents to play together. The Stay and Play Sessions last year held in the school hall were very popular and we are pleased the Children‘s centre for the South of the Isle in our grounds is now finished and handed over so we can offer the sessions again. All parents with pre-school children are welcome to attend. Best wishes John Hodgkins

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.

Now & Then – Then & Now No. 15

By Anthony Catherall

This month and every month; see Epworth & Belton in bygone days and compare to today‘s images.

The ‗Rio‘ cinema in Queen Street Epworth, co-owner Sidney York stands proudly outside. Opening in 1938 its first event was by the Epworth Operatic Society, who performed their production of ‗No No Nanette‘ for a week on the stage of the theatre. The first film however was the 1937 musical ‗Rosalie‘ then came a western ‗The Badman of Brimstone‘, followed by the 1925 film ‗The Rat‘. The cinema was very popular with folks from all over the Isle and beyond, people flocked there to see their favourite films, some even parked their bicycles in the house opposite. In the early years a pretty usherette Barbara Johnson showed people to their seats whilst upstairs George Smith helped in the projection room. Several well-known stars later also played the theatre, including Shirley Bassey who stayed at Low Burnham and Billy J. Kramer. Whilst Billy J. was in Epworth he had his hair cut by Elsie Boggis in her high street shop (now Serendipity). Although not charged even a pound, he gave Elsie a ten pound note and said ―its my best ever hair cut‖. Sadly in the early hours of June 1 1978 a serious fire broke out and the cinema was ruined. For those readers who are new to the Isle, the picture below shows the two detached houses built on the old site of the Rio. The wall and gates of Chancel House can be seen on the left.

IT’S THE RULE! As this letter is being read many will have been watching World Cup football matches, with some no doubt containing controversial issues. Some of this controversy will have been due to interpretation of the rules, or more accurately, differing interpretation of the same rules. In North America football the rules are interpreted in such a way that diving or cheating to gain a penalty is considered to be the most serious misdemeanour, often with players surrounding the offender and emphatically pointing him out as a cheat. Yet the same players accept shirt- pulling and holding to prevent an opposing player getting away. On the other hand in Southern Europe it is said that extravagant diving is more normal, and it is the shirt holding which is viewed as unacceptable! Yet both leagues play to the same rule book.. Whatever the field we are engaged in, rules play a large part. The issue of MPs expenses has been a very recent instance of the rules being interpreted in different ways. Some MPs consider that they have been vilified even though they have simply kept the rules and the interpretation of them as given. Rule interpretation is a serious business. The people of Israel prided themselves in their rule keeping, but in the teaching of Jesus the rule keeping was summarised into two principles, that of love for God, and love for neighbour. Such principles or ideals provide a surer framework that the detail of rules. In the South African World Cup however players and referees regard the rules, it is to be hoped that the best team wins, not according to some bureaucratic record of fair play points, but with the best team on goals fairly scored.

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 All Saints Church, part of The Belton Group of Parishes

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.

Whitby by Andrew Kershaw

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.

On Friday 14th May, 14 cyclists and 2 back up crew from the Isle of Axholme ,

left the comfort of their homes and embarked on the 4 hour journey to Workington to start the famous Coast to Coast cycling challenge. Every year isle personal trainer Paul Seaman takes a team of between 12 and 20 clients on the coast to coast as part of the yearly events calendar he organises for clients. All clients have to prepare for the challenge as its 140 miles of cycling across some of the most demanding terrain in the British Isles and certainly not for the faint hearted. Saturday morning arrived, sunny with a gentle breeze and after a good nights sleep everyone was ready to begin the 45 mile trek from Workington to Greystoke. Passing through Keswick and taking in the magnificent sights of the Lake District the team of 14 split up as 7 slightly mad cyclists took the off road route up the Old Coach Road and the other 7 took the more sensible route along the road. The F.A. cup final seemed to spur us on to finish the first day in record time. We were all in the pub by 3pm, a great days cycling with some tough hills behind us, however nothing compared to what day 2 had in store for us! Sunday morning, the sun was shining again, we had picked the right weekend to for this challenge for sure. The shortest distance of the whole 3 days, just 38 miles of sheer torture, meaning tackling the hardest hills the lake district had to offer, if i said Hartside and Garragill, those that have done the C2C will be cringing now just thinking about them. Another good days cycling, finishing at 3pm again, this team is by far the fittest i have taken on the C2C, the're making it look too easy, must be the training they put in before hand now paying dividends for them. Monday morning, last day and the farthest distance to cover, 60 miles to the finish, initially a hilly start but the last 30 miles was downhill, what a relief. This day was never ending, it seemed to drag on and on, however at 4pm, we all reached our destination, Tynemouth. With a celebratory drink or two, we rested up in the Port Hole Pub and waited for our transport back to the Isle of Axholme, the 2010 C2C completed! Well done to all the team members this year, the training paid off and you all did yourselves proud. See you all next year for Whitehaven to Sunderland!

Farming on the Isle at Harvester Farm , Epworth This has been a month of ―ups‖ and ―downs‖ as is the nature of livestock farming – nothing can predict what will be thrown at you – just have to do the best that you can and hope you make the right decisions. Firstly shearing was highlighted on the calendar to start at the beginning of the month with the hogs(last years lambs) and the rams to be done first followed by the rest of the ewes .Dean, our trusty Shearer, arrived early, with hope the weather would hold ( cloudy with a strong wind) got into a good start with Bill and Ben (the rams).Both behaved reasonably well and considering their size managed to sit still throughout the process – although Ben did give Dean a steely stare while he was shearing Bill – Dean‘s behind looked very tempting for a good butt! It was at this point the weather began to prove a problem – strong windy conditions are not good for wrapping fleeces as we (myself and daughter) discovered. The rams fleeces are not only thick but they also have a large surface area and after much flapping about we managed to roll them up and put them into the large special sack provided by the Wool Board. All fleeces have to be checked that no debris is on them before they are rolled up in a special way and placed in the sacks. These sacks once filled, approx. 25 fleeces, are laced up, labelled and delivered to the Wool Depot in Stamford. Deans next task was to shear a small group of ewes but after the second ewe he decided that the fleeces were not ready – the wool was ―sticky‖ and didn‘t come away from their skin and therefore would not come off as a fleece but in bits. It was decided to leave them for another 2-3 weeks. We then moved onto hogs who potentially were going to be a little skitty – first time to be sheared – but they behaved very well and looked very smart in their neat, trimmed and extremely white coats. During shearing we managed to have a good inspection of their condition and as we suspected – due to the rams getting into their field during the bad weather- 4girls were expecting. These have now given birth, sadly 1 was dead born but the rest are growing rapidly One of the main pests in sheep at this time is the blow-fly and due to the warm and wet conditions these insects thrive on the fleeces as a breeding ground for their larvae. They hatch, as maggots and feed off the skin under the fleece where it is warm and free from any predators, if left this can be very distressing for the sheep. So until they are shorn we have to be very vigilant checking 2 to 3 times a day. The lambs are all making amazing progress - -some nearly as big as their mums. Great games are played out in the field with as many as 30 lambs gathering into a group and running ―stampede fashion‖ across the field, leaping and jumping knocking over anything that is in their wake! All the cows and calves were moved out at the beginning of the month with just the bull to move across to his paddock at Misterton. He was very much looking forward to getting some sunrays on his back, but unfortunately this has had to be postponed for a number of weeks. This has been due to 4 of the claves born at Christmas going down with an unknown viral infection. Two of the calves have made a full recovery and went back out to the field 10 days ago, the third calf unfortunately did not make it and sadly died, at the beginning of last week. The forth calf is still battling through the infection and is receiving plenty of TLC. Best Wishes Jill Carr

Award winning Isle Photographer Steve Oatway is taking a unique approach to family photography, by making it fun and affordable. Throughout summer he is offering his No 1 Portrait Package which includes a photo session with up to 5 people and five 7‖ x 5‖ prints (normally £10.99 each) for just £75. Steve says “Some people think family portraits are out of their reach, because of the cost, but this package means they can have great family photos for a sensible price”. All of Steve‘s photo shoots take place on location, most often places familiar to the subjects, like home, the garden or the local park. This, along with Steve‘s relaxed approach, means the sessions are informal and enjoyable, which in turn means he can capture real people and real moments, and create images to treasure. One of his most recent clients was so thrilled with the images of her family that she is going to make a photo session with Steve an annual event, saying ―Steve has really caught the boys‘ personalities and they enjoyed themselves so much. I‘m thrilled to bits, we‘ve got some amazing images - it‘s wonderful to finally have some proper photographs of the family, I wish we‘d done it ages ago.‖ Steve has also earned a reputation as an excellent wedding photographer, and also takes portraits to mark special events such as school proms or the arrival of a new baby. Steve works throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Humberside and Nottinghamshire, and examples of his work and details of packages can be found at www.steveoatwayphotography.co.uk

Women’s Institute (WI) Report I have to begin this with an apology for misinforming you readers. In my first report I said the WI was formed 70 years ago in the WW2. I got my wars mixed up; it was during WW1 so the organisation is 95 years old, not 70. The meeting on Tuesday 8th June was held in the Jonathon David shop on High Street in Epworth, and was attended by around 25 members. We all enjoyed a cup of coffee, or hot chocolate with a piece of one of their lovely cakes for some. After dealing with the business part of the meeting we adjourned up to the business portion of the shop. We were allowed into the inner sanctum where the chocolates are made, and cakes decorated, where we were treated to a very informative little talk on chocolate, and a taste of several varieties that the proprietor, David Wardle, uses in his products. It was difficult to resist temptation, so in my case, I didn‘t. The chocolate was all delicious. After the talk, and time taken to examine some of the equipment, flavourings and colourings that are used, David went on to demonstrate how to decorate a cake using chocolate. He made it seem oh so easy, but after having a go myself, I can assure you that it isn‘t. The best part of course is that one gets to eat all the failed attempts. I will be trying it again at home, as I‘m sure will many of the other members. A vote of thanks was given to David for his time, and sharing his expertise with us. The next meeting will be held on the 13th July, and takes the form of a treasure hunt. Cath Fordham Contact number 01427 874422

History of the Highway Code Dear readers, With 1st June marking the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the driving test in the UK. It needs drivers to continually improve their driving techniques in increasingly demanding driving conditions and keep their skill levels up to date. Our driving tests, however, have changed little over the years and an improvement in driving standards is needed to fill the gap. Although cars are becoming easier to drive – with much improved brakes and suspension as well as power-steering and a host of other safety systems. Traffic has significantly increased and traffic networks have become immensely more complex, so the driver needs far more understanding of what‘s going on outside the car. In the UK 71 per cent of road deaths occur on rural roads. It is improving the driver what will make the single biggest improvement to road safety in the future, In 1935 the driving test was introduced: within a year the death toll had fallen by nearly a thousand were two-thirds fewer deaths (2,538), but fourteen times as many vehicles (34 million) plenty of room for improvement. The 1931 edition: cost one old penny contained 18 pages of advice, com-pared to 133 pages in the 2007 edition. In 1935 edition included advice to drivers of horse drawn vehicles to ‗rotate the whip above the head; then incline the whip to the right or left to show the direction in which the turn is to be made. Since those early days, regular revisions of the Code have reflected changes in technology and developments in traffic management and road safety. Diagrams of road signs - just ten signs in all - were first seen in the second edition, as was a warning about the dangers of driving when affected by alcohol or fatigue. Stopping distances made their first appearance in the third edition, along with new sections giving hints on driving and cycling. The arrival of motorways in the late 1950s led to the inclusion, in the fifth edition, of a new section on motorway driving, explaining such things as how to use exit slip roads and advising drivers to avoid drowsiness by stretching their legs at the parking or service areas. The 70-page 1978 edition introduced the Green Cross Code for pedestrians and the new orange badges for the disabled. Prompted by soaring car crime statistics, the amended version contained advice on vehicle security. The 1990s saw a new format taller booklet and the inclusion of a section geared to the new driving the-

ory test, which in the current edition has now become part of the Code itself. To be continued:
