The smartest designer children’s wear shop, bar none! Smartest, Baa None! was only launched in Fountain Court, Epworth a month ago but is already making quite a name for itself as one of a smartest and most fun places to shop in the Isle. Proprietor Jane Keightley is clearly delighted by the impact Smartest, Baa None! has made since she opened its doors on 1 May: ‗‘I always thought there was a gap in the market for a designer children‘s wear shop in Epworth and felt it was important to make it a refreshingly different shopping experience. By bringing together some of the best names in children‘s fashion in an exciting environment, I seem to have found the right formula. Customers are loving the ranges on offer and seem to appreciate the level of service. The good news is that many lines are selling so well that I‘m already re-ordering for Spring/Summer having secured the best designs for next season.‘‘ Timberland‘s Autumn/Winter stock arrives in store towards the end of the month closely followed by Catamini, Bèbè, Joules and no added sugar. Jane is also planning to take to the road over the summer months with stands displaying the Smartest, Baa None! range at popular events such as local shows, fun days and baby/toddler groups. If you know of any event which may be suitable for Smartest, Baa None! or would like to arrange a designer children‘s wear party at your home for your friends please call Jane on 01427 875 975.

News, News, News... AVID - or Awaken Village Interest in Dance to use its full title - has been organising informal folk dances - or barn dances or ceilidhs - in the isle since 1999. These dances are held in village halls in different villages on the evening of the second Wednesday of each month. They are designed to be informal, with no prior knowledge of the dances required. Live music is provided and there is expert tuition for the dances. Peter Barnard has been helping to put on these dances since 1993 and says ―we have held some fantastic evenings. We never know who is going to turn up. We don‘t book a band or a caller - we just see who is there. Yet we have never had to cancel a dance for lack of musicians or callers. Because the dances are informal we are able to cater for dancers of all ages and ability levels. And at £1 entry it is a snip!‖ AVID has its own website - www.aviddance.co.uk where you can see the location for the next dances. Just watch as no dances are held in July and August because of the school holidays. So, why not get your dancing shoes out or dust down that violin and come along. You will be made to feel very welcome. If you would like more details, please contact Peter Barnard on 01427 873937. The next dance is on June 9th at the Coronation Hall, Owston Ferry.

Farming in the Isle

Ram lambs having breakfast in the snow

The past few months have flown bye and so much has happened on the farm. At the beginning of March the flock of sheep were split in to two groups – the earlier ewes to lamb and the late ones along with any that were going to have large multiple births, so we could keep a close eye on them. We then had the waiting game, checking regularly to make sure that none of them got stuck on their backs. During this lull before the storm we had a very pleasant visit from the local Beavers group, who had a tour of the cattle sheds and got to meet most of the cows and calves. They were already a very knowledgeable group of children, and hopefully they had an enjoyable experience and learnt a bit more information about the Dexter breed of cattle. At the end of March and the beginning of April most of the cows and claves were moved out to fresh grass, apart from a couple of cows who are currently with Larry, the bull. Ruby the cow who had the twin calves is also in side, having a bit of TLC as she is having to produce so much milk for her two rapidly growing calves. She will hopefully be going out at the end of the month, when the nights are a little warmer. The first of the lambs were born on Easter Sunday, and from then onwards, for the next 2 and a half weeks it was none stop. On our record day we had 8 sets of twins, 3 sets of triplets and a set of quads. We leave all lambs with their mums, apart from the quads where we have to take one off, as the ewes find it very hard to produce enough milk for 4 very hungry lambs. On the 12th April at 6am we had a mad dash to Portland House Vets in Retford, as a ewe who had earlier prolapsed started to lamb and needed a Caesarean section, as we were unable to lamb her naturally. To everyone‘s surprise including the vets she had two very healthy lambs. In total we had 258 lambs, a record year. A big thank you to everyone who came down and helped us with lambing, especially Westwoodside stores who kept us in supply of cardboard boxes for the slightly weaker lambs to snugly in on a hot water bottle, when the weather was wet and cold. Best wishes Jill Carr ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Behind the Brown Paper- the life of the Buffer Girls

The speaker at the Haxey & Westwoodside Heritage Society Meeting was film maker Gillian Booth on‘ Behind the Brown Paper‘. In a film she made for Channel 4 she incorporated her research into the ‗Buffer Girls‘ of the Sheffield cutlery trade, (just known as the Sheffield Trade) into a programme concerning two young women in the 1920‘s who were Buffer Girls until their retirement. The girls, an independent coterie of swearing singing women buffed up the silver and silverplated items made in workshops by both the ‗Little Maisters‘ and the larger firms of silver smiths. Often run by a ‗Mrs. Maister‘, in family groups, they worked for piece work rates which gave them a good wage and independence. The buffers were whirling wheels with leather strips attached against which the girls held the item to be buffed. These were coated with a mixture of oil and sand and the girls wore brown paper aprons, head scarves and neck scarves to protect them from the flying mixture. This coated their faces and hands black but did not appear to have any adverse effect on their health. A buffer shop of several girls would also have an errand girl to light the fire, prepare the wheels, and act as a runner until she reached the age of 16 when she could become a Buffer. Mrs. Booth told many tales of Buffer life. The change to stainless steel table ware by hotels in the 1950‘s saw the end to much of the trade but specialist orders still provided employment. The girls were noted for the way they terrified young men entering their domain. Mrs. Booths final tale about this practice, had the members in stitches so you can guess what it was about. Best Wishes Mary

Haxey Parish Council, Newsletter, June 2010 Parish Clerk - Deb Hotson Email: haxeypc@live.co.uk Telephone: 01652 618306 / 07800 569 589 Website: www.haxeyparish.org.uk The Parish of Haxey Heritage Trail There are many old local customs and ways of life that are lost to the community of today. It is a shame to lose our heritage and so, in conjunction with the Haxey and Westwoodside Heritage Society, it has been decided by the Parish Council to compile a Heritage Trail. The Trail hopes to give a little information on some of the items of local history which can still be found today in the Parish of Haxey. It will cover items such as mounting stones, pinfolds, war memorials, the parish pump and many more. Unfortunately, the Trail will only touch on a limited number of items due to restrictions on space and funds. Hopefully the publication of the Heritage Trail will take place in the next few months. Isle of Axholme Internal Drainage Board Haxey Flood Relief Scheme and Low Burnham Flood Storage Scheme The Parish Council were consulted by the Isle of Axholme Internal Drainage Board on their plans for flood relief schemes for Haxey and Low Burnham respectively. The Parish Council welcomes both schemes which should alleviate previous flooding / drainage problems at these locations. The Haxey scheme has a western section draining High Street / Low Street and an eastern section draining part of Haxey Lane. Government grant has been sanctioned for this year for the scheme and a project appraisal report is being prepared to obtain grant approval. The Drainage Board has already budgeted for the eastern section involving piping across the playing field. After agreement with the playing field representatives this will take place at the end of this year‘s football season. The Low Burnham scheme involves using the pond near the Holy Well upstream of the village as a storage area for flood water which can then be released at a controlled rate through a penstock type control back into Burnham Beck. This will require work on the pond and the cleaning of culverts along the Beck. Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board has been engaged by North Lincolnshire Council to finalise the design and make an application for grant aid. Haxey Parish Council & Axholme Camera Club Photographic Competition 2010 The winners for the competition are detailed below:Camera Club category – Parry Jenkins, Westwoodside Pond Lights. Adult category - Arthur Franks, Winter Sunshine Youth category - Craig Neal, Butterflies Junior category - Aislinn Chamber – Hey, My Dog Ella The presentation of the prizes and trophies will take place at 6.45pm on 25 th May prior to the Parish Council meeting. Well done to all those who entered and we look forward to your entries next year. Caravan Sites The concerns of local residents about Certified Location, CL, caravan sites at Low Burnham and at Haxey Carr were raised at the Annual Parish Meeting. The Parish Council has investigated both sites and various issues have been discussed with North Lincolnshire Council. The question of the dangerous access to the Low Burnham site off the A161 is still outstanding, but generally it has to be concluded that the Parish Council has limited powers in the approval of these CL sites as the regulations stand at present. They, and neighbouring landowners, were not consulted about the proposals to set up the sites. The Parish Council strongly believes that it is wrong that the Camping and Caravanning Club are allowed to certify sites without consultation.

Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for culture, the Fête de la Musique is held in more than hundred countries in Europe and over the world. It takes place every 21st June, the day of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. All kinds of music / A large audience Completely different from a music festival, the Fête de la Musique is above all a free popular fête (or festival in English), open to any participant (amateur or professional musicians) who want to perform in it. This Music Day allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It aims at a large audience, working to popularise musical practice for young and not so young people from all social backgrounds. Musicians are asked to perform for free and all the concerts are free for the public. On this day they play in open air areas, such as streets and parks or in public buildings like museums, churches, halls etc. Furthermore, the Fête de la Musique is a way to encourage the major music institutions (orchestras, operas, choirs, bands etc.) to perform outside their usual locations. In this way the day offers an opportunity to develop exchanges between musicians of different musical genres and to offer concerts in a variety of locations, many of which do not normally host them. Most of all, it offers music in the open air. Finally it gives amateur and professional musicians a chance to play together in the same arena. Last year the Fête fell on a Sunday and it was celebrated in the afternoon at various places in the Epworth. Sticking with the tradition of always holding it on the 21st, this year it will fall on Monday 21st June. A number of musicians and singers have already expressed an interest in playing at some point in the day and evening. If you would like to play or sing - in whatever style - please contact Keith on 01427 873915 or Peter Barnard on 01427 873937 for more details. Or just turn up anywhere in the village and perform. This is a great and free way to make Epworth really buzz on the solstice day and for people to have free entertainment. Now why wasn‘t that in any manifesto?

The Isle of Axholme

Where You Live

Your Local History

Adapted by Anthony Catherall

THE NORMANS continued Justices under the Mowbray’s was in the shape of the Manor Court. It settled disputes between tenants. It had the power to try offending tenants and to condemn to death for theft. The Manor Court remained in operation long after the Mowbray’s. The counties of England were divided up by the King amongst his followers in return for armed service in time of war. The counties were divided up into Hundreds, and Hundreds divided into Manors. One hundred Manors made up a Hundred. The Manor land was divided up into the domain (Lord’s Land) and the villeins land. The villeins, as rent, had to plough four acres for the Lord and supply two oxen for the Lord for seven days a year and work three days a week on the lord’s land. He must follow the Lord to war and sit on his court of justice. He also had rights. He could not be ejected from his land as long as he performed his duties. These Villeins were called copyholders because they had their conditions of land tenure written down and they had a copy. Cottars held small parcels of land in return for a certain rent. Porcarii were free occupiers who rented the privilege of feeding pigs for payment. Servi had few rights and were almost slaves. Most of these social classes were set up in Saxon times and carried over into Norman times. The manor lands were divided up into three large fields. One was left fallow each year. The crops sowed on the others included wheat, hemp and flax. The whole village ploughed, sowed and reaped together each field. Despite this, the fields were divided into strips between the various tenants to ensure that no one hot all the poor land or all the good land. There were common fields for grazing. According to the Doomsday Book, Epworth Manor had sixteen acres of common meadowland and one square mile of woodland. In addition, the Epworth tenants had the deed of John de Mowbray that granted free use of the waste lands in the west of the parish. In 1795 an act of parliament was obtained to enclose the commons of Owston Ferry, Haxey, Belton and Epworth. There was a great deal of haggling about the division of the lands. The locals resisted the enclosure of the arable lands that of course, are still to some extent in strips in certain parts of Epworth and Haxey parishes.

THE TRENTSIDE CONFEDERATION – SCHOOL NEWS The Trentside Confederation is preparing for a busy Summer Term, following the Easter break. There is a wide variety of topics being taught at both schools. West Butterwick Infants have already enjoyed a special visit from ‗Pets at Home‘ linking knowledge and care of pets and animals with citizenship skills. Lop-eared rabbits and guinea pigs were our special visitors in connection with this! Key Stage 1 pupils have been enjoying a wide variety of art forms, working on a large-scale weaving project in the playground, in addition to a number of exciting creations with our ‗Artist in Residence‘ - painting on canvas using Aboriginal Art as a creative stimulus. West Butterwick Juniors have also been considering the indigenous art of Australia, working with ‗Mod Roc‘ to create some spectacular three dimensional creatures ; platypus (or should that be platypi?!), Koalas and Turtles. This work was of a very high standard and enjoyed by all. All of the children at WB have been enjoying the luxury of our new WiFi laptops and I have seen some really interesting persuasive writing based on the popular Wallace and Gromit film ‗A Matter of Loaf and Death‘.... Inspiring! Furthermore, be warned, that if you are in West Butterwick over the next few weeks, then you may even spot a Viking or two! St Martin‘s pupils and staff, Owston Ferry, have been equally busy and creative – Joseph‘s Coat is this term‘s unit for Design and Technology in Years 1 and 2. The overall aim is to actually create a multicoloured coat, learning about textiles, sewing and joining techniques along the way. Towards the other end of the school, our Years 5 & 6 (Class 4) are getting to grips with the technology of belts and pulleys. This knowledge, linked in with further studies of electricity and motors, will provide them with an opportunity to design and make a model of a fairground ride. All that‘s missing is the candy floss and wurlitzer! Class 3 (Mrs Ayris) is enjoying a historical delve in to our past, learning all about the Tudors. Of course, King Henry VIII and his many wives are a major focus here! This wonderful topic will also give the children an idea of the lives of rich and poor in Tudor times, as well as touching on Tudor explorers. The Tudor age was a great time of exploration ; Christopher Columbus, Francis Drake and Walter Raleigh will be familiar names to many of you reading this. In the month of June, both schools are planning two days of multicultural themed learning with a World Cup focus – we will let you know how this develops. Forthcoming educational visits include our residential stay at Caythorpe Court PGL Centre near Grantham. Pupils in Years 5 and 6 get involved in parachute games, archery, zip wire, aeroball and orienteering. So, lots going on over the coming weeks. Finally, on a personal note, I would like to say how lovely it is to be back following my maternity leave. We all look forward to an enjoyable and vibrant Summer Term – let‘s hope that the sunshine is equally as vibrant! Don‘t forget to visit our website www.trentsideconfederation.com for lots more information on our schools!Mrs Josephine Buckle, Headteacher (The Trentside Confederation ; St Martin‘s C of E and West Butterwick C of E Primary Schools)

REPORT FROM EPWORTH & DISTRICT FLOWER CLUB – MAY MEETING. The Flower Club has a friendship with St. Lawrence‘s Flower Circle, Scunthorpe, which goes back a fair few years now. They were invited to the May meeting , along with friends of members and other visitors, to see a demonstration by Rosalind Walker from Driffield, affectionately known as‖ Auntie Ros, ‖because our treasurer is her relation. What a treat we all had! We had an evening of wonderful flower arranging, fun and laughter, when Ros created a striking display, entitled ―Spring into Summer‖ . The title did not reflect the weather outside, it being a bitter cold night, with severe frost forecast, but inside Haxey Memorial Hall, we had our spirits lifted with Rosalinds designs. She worked on five, mainly traditional arrangements, using five very designer containers. Bringing from her boxes, beautiful pieces of fresh plant material from her garden, one after the other, blossom, dogwood, witch elm, silver birch, red robin, Solomon‘s seal, and skilfully arranging them as background for heavenly flowers, such as, roses, gerberas, carnations, stocks, hellebores, the list could go on, and using the last of the tulips as spring steps into summer. The stage, at the end of the show, was a stunning presentation of colourful arrangements, created whilst keeping us entertained with chitchat , anecdotes and rhymes. Coffee, tea and cakes were served, adding to making it a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to everyone who helped with, and provided refreshments.

Doncaster Advanced Motorist Five tips to prepare your car for summer Dear readers, After a long winter of wear and tear through snow, salt and potholes - and volcanic dust - your car will be in need of a little TLC. Being prepared for the summer and making checks now can save you a lot of money in the long run. Try to deal with any minor problems and repairs as they happen, as they can become very expensive if left to build up over time. Here are five tips to prepare your car: rusting if left on the bodywork. If possible take your car to a car wash that specializes in under-car cleaning to get rid of every trace. replacing your car‘s pollen filter annually is a vital investment. Keeping your air-con well maintained will help, too. -con will help your car smell better. If it smells stale when you turn the heating on, it could well be a sign that mould is building up in your condenser. refill your washer fluid. Habitually washing the windscreen and headlamps when you stop for fuel is also important as windscreen wipers won‘t get rid of all the fly debris. can leave marks on the windscreen, so remember to replace them regularly. After the dust that has fallen from the volcanic ash cloud, it is particularly important that you clean them regularly to avoid damaging your windscreen.

£110

Certain checks should be made regardless of the season: Anti-freeze contains corrosion inhibitors so you should keep your car topped up with the right mixture all year round; going without could lead to expensive internal damage such as a blown head gasket. If you are interested in further information regarding the courses that we offer, you‘ll be able to find this information on the Institute of Advanced Motorists website at www.iam.org.uk or Tel: 020 8996 9600 Safe Driving. Paul Tuke. Secretary, Doncaster Advanced Motorists.

Axholme, Doncaster TTL and Retford Camera Clubs met at Haxey Church Hall recently for the annual 3-way competition. Ralph Bennett of Newark was invited to judge. Entries from the clubs were mixed together, so there was no way to tell one from another. At the end of the evening the scores were incredibly close. Prints and digital images were submitted, with Axholme winning in the digital image section. The overall winner was Doncaster with 400 points, Axholme coming in second with 396 points. Retford were close on their heels with 394 points. Axholme members brought sweet and savoury snacks to provide a lovely buffet supper which was enjoyed by all. In a recent digital image competition held at Sheffield, 24 clubs from the area submitted entries, including Axholme Camera Club. The Judge had a hard time of it with around 125 entries to mark. Axholme did very well for a small country club, being placed joint 3rd. Once again Kevin Wells visited the club for a practical session with members. Camera settings can be a bit of a mystery to some, but Kevin was there to help and explain in his usual clear and friendly manner. It proved a useful evening. Open to anyone is an evening show of the North East and Midlands Photographic Exhibition on DVD. This is an opportunity to see many top quality exhibits from the best photographers in the area. The show takes place at Haxey Church Hall on Wednesday 16th June at 7.30pm. There will be a small door charge to include refreshments. All will be made very welcome. The rest of the year's programme to the summer break consists of competitions, photo opportunities locally and a Photoshop evening on June 30th. It is not too late to join in as a visitor, and a reduced membership fee operates if you wish to become a full member at this stage.
