These are the current Neighbourhood Action Team priorites for the South wards of the Isle of Axholme;St Martins Church, Church St/East Lound Road, Owston Ferry: Anti-social behaviour, Underage drinking and Criminal Damage. We have received reports of youths congregating in the grounds of St Martins PC Constable 1839 Tina Police Community Support Church in Owston Ferry. This tends to be mainly on an evening and due to it‘s Starbuck Officer 7574 Sue Fahy location it is not easy to see them from the main road leading up to the church. This makes it an ideal area for groups to gather and evidence of empty bottles of alcohol and other litter have been found. There are also reports of damage the roof of the church and flowers being cut and removed. The Neighbourhood team are making regular patrols of the area and several youths have been spoken to regarding the reports received and have been moved on. Blackmoor Road/Lowcroft Ave/Marlborough Ave, Haxey: Neighbourhood issues, nuisance scooters. There have been reports in the past of youths behaving in an anti social manner at the above locations. There are also reports of youths on scooters riding in an erratic manner. Any persons found committing any offences will be dealt with and where relevant, there is the opportunity to police staff to seize scooters at a cost to the owner. Neighbourhood staff will continue to patrol the area and would encourage anyone with any information to contact us. There has been a report of young persons throwing ‗water bombs‘ at a local resident‘s address, enquiries identified those responsible who have been advised regarding their conduct. A 161, Low Burnham, caravan site: public order, criminal damage. Low Burnham is awaiting confirmation whether a caravan site is going to commence just off the A161. Police will monitor the situation and respond to any public disorder or criminal offences until the matter is finalised. There has been on-going work between the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre and Facebook after concerns about the safety of many young users of the site and to highlight other issues. Working together CEOP and Facebook have developed an application which will enable users to download a ‗ClickCEOP‘ button and place it within their profiles. It would be ideal for users of Facebook to add the ClickCEOP app to their profiles. Visit to do this, and enable you to have direct access to advice and guidance should you ever need it. The app will be live from Monday 12th July 2010. I have visited all schools within the area and delivered the Lifestyle presentation and I would like to wish all the participants the best of luck. I will be in touch during the summer break to see how you are doing. You still have time to enter just go to or contact 01482 220700.

Haxey Parish Councillors invited all Over 70’s to the Parish Party held in Haxey Memorial Hall on Thursday, 3rd June 2010 at 4.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. There was an excellent attendance, as there usually is, with well over 100 people enjoying an excellent meal, catered by Sandra Bishop and her staff. The Chairman of Haxey Parish Council, Cllr John Smedley, who was present, thanked Mrs Jennie Eckhardt for, once again, organising the event. The Vicar of Haxey Rev Jerry Green and Mrs Green. were also present. This annual party has become a very popular event and is looked forward to as an opportunity to meet and chat with old friends in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There was also, as usual, some friendly rivalry as to who would be found to be the oldest Lady and Oldest Gentleman in attendance. This year they were Mrs Doris Glew, who was presented with a bottle of brandy, and Mr Wilf Lindley, who received a bottle of whisky, from Cllr John Smedley on behalf of the Parish Council. One of the features of this annual event is the evening entertainment, traditionally provided by local singers or musicians. This year was no exception in that respect, but the entertainment itself was an opportunity to enjoy the exceptional talent of Marina May, otherwise know as Chloe Dance, whose grandfather, Reg Dance, also present to enjoy the event, is a well-known local singer who has entertained the audience in the past. Marina May sang a programme of songs from the Forties and Fifties. Her lovely voice brought to life not only the beautiful songs, but also the wonderful memories they held for many of those present. Best Wishes Jennie Over 100 people enjoying ‗The Parish Party‘ at Haxey Memorial Hall

The Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them. There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to one million by 2025. In the East Midlands there are over 54,000 people with dementia and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 71,000 by 2017. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through our network of local services, we touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week, providing practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers. Every year, more than a million people make use of the information we provide. Through campaigning and lobbying we strive to influence government policies and raise awareness of the challenges faced by people with dementia and the people who care for them. And through our research programme we work to improve the knowledge we have about dementia and its treatment - and pursuing the ultimate goal of finding a cure. Our vision is of a radically improved world for people with dementia. A world where they have their rights recognised, where they can fully contribute to family and community life and where they can live with dignity, free from discrimination. A world where they, and those who care for them, have their needs fully met. A world, ultimately, where dementia can be defeated. STATISTICS: There are currently 750,000 people with dementia in the UK. There are over 16,000 younger people with dementia in the UK. There are over 11,500 people with dementia from black and minority ethnic groups in the UK. There will be over a million people with dementia by 2025. Two thirds of people with dementia are women. The proportion of people with dementia doubles for every 5 year age group. One third of people over 95 have dementia. 60,000 deaths a year are directly attributable to dementia. Delaying the onset of dementia by 5 years would reduce deaths directly attributable to dementia by 30,000 a year. The financial cost of dementia to the UK is over £20 billion a year. Family carers of people with dementia save the UK over £6 billion a year. 64% of people living in care homes have a form of dementia. Two thirds of people with dementia live in the community while one third live in a care home.

COFFEE MORNING & CAKE STALL SATURDAY 14TH AUGUST 10.30am HAXEY MEMORIAL HALL In aid of The Alzheimer’s Society Gill Snow a local resident hopes as many people can come to the event to support this worth while charity. Gill has been involved with the charity since her mum, Pam Golland died of Alzheimers a year ago. Raffle and Tombola (Donations appreciated)

Westwoodside Church of England School Looking back over another busy year at Westwoodside Church of England School, there have been so many wonderful opportunities for the children. Having Mrs Judge on a job share basis i.e. Class Teacher for 3 days a week and Sports Coordinator through South Axholme for the other 2, which attracts funding from the School Sport Partnership, means that the children have benefited from a wide variety of sporting events which would not have happened otherwise. During the Summer term these have included a Golf Day, transport to the Triangular and Triathalon Sports and football coaching during School hours. The picture shows some of our pupils at the Corus Triathalon event. On 18 June we held a whole School Creativity Exhibition where each class displayed a wide variety of work that could be seen as part of learning through creativity. All the children had the opportunity to enjoy looking at work form other classes and several adult visitors were impressed by the range and standards achieved. Small groups of children from each class were chosen as ‗experts‘ to explain their work to our visitors. Our Homework Reading competitions have continued in appropriate classes. The picture shows winners from Year 4, who managed to read at home the most regularly. We firmly believe that extra practice reading aloud to an adult at home not only helps the children‘s reading but also supports their progress in writing. Our emphasis on reading and writing in School, reinforced at home, has led this Summer to our best Year 6 SATs results in reading and writing (as well as Maths!) for several years. Well done to all the children and adults who have contributed, in partnership, to this wonderful achievement. Wishing you a lovely Summer. Roger Marshall Headteacher

West Butterwick Community Led Village Plan Update The Village Plan group met on 6th July to finalise the arrangements for the Launch Party which went ahead on the evening of Friday 9th July. All residents in the village of West Butterwick were invited and made welcome with free refreshments and displays showing ‗Past‘ photos (kindly donated by Nick Coggan) and a ‗Present‘ display with photos of areas of the village today. Then there was the ‗Future‘ board which enabled visitors to make comments about their hopes for the future of the village. A big thank you to all those people (about 80) who went to the trouble to attend, give suggestions and ideas to the Group. It was decided at the follow-up meeting on 14th July that further consultation is required with the residents, so the Village Plan Group hope to attend the Field Day with the ‗Village Plan Gazebo‘ so more residents will have the opportunity to have their say. PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER THOUGHTS OR COMMENTS, PLEASE HELP US BY PUTTING THEM IN THE SUGGESTION BOX WHICH IS TO BE PLACED IN THE VILLAGE SHOP. Thanks are extended by the Village Plan Group to West Butterwick Stores, The Three Horseshoes, and The Ferryboat for their kind donations for the raffle at the above event.

Yorkshire Hearing Introduces the Revolutionary S Series iQ Yorkshire Hearing is the first Hearing Care Practice in Doncaster area to launch the revolutionary new S Series iQ hearing instrument from Starkey Laboratories which addresses the biggest problem hearing aid wearers have faced to date – hearing comfortably in noise. Often in quiet environments, hearing loss sufferers can hear the voices in front of them, but have trouble in noisier surroundings.Starkey‘s new noise reduction and speech preservation system, Voice iQ, is designed to hold speech volume up and push background noise down, meaning hearing aid wearers can hear more of what they want to hear, like conversations and less of what they don‘t, like wind and noise. ―Voice iQ truly takes hearing aid technology to a new level,‖ said Mr Paul Smith, Hearing Aid Audiologist of Yorkshire Hearing‘‘. Developing the technology to address speech understanding in noise has taken Starkey three years but the result is a huge step forward for hearing aid wearers‖. For hearing loss sufferers who refuse to be seen wearing a hearing instrument and favour a more discreet solution, the new OtoLens might just be the answer. OtoLens is the first 100% custom, invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aid so no one has to know you‘re wearing a hearing instrument. Although small, it is also packed with the very latest technology to deliver a precise, natural sound. According to the RNID, nearly 9 million people in the UK suffer from hearing loss, but the majority of them don‘t get help, which affects their communication and ultimately their quality of life over time. Now there is really is no need to suffer unnecessarily with invisible hearing solutions and groundbreaking hearing technology that will set hearing loss sufferers back onto the path of better hearing. The new S Series iQ hearing instruments will be available from Yorkshire Hearing from 1 st July 2010. Mr Smith at Yorkshire Hearing is a registered Hearing Aid Audiologist with The Health Professions Council & has been in the business of providing hearing care to the people of the Doncaster area for 34 years and has helped countless people with hearing loss to enjoy hearing again.

Wroot Travis School News Letters This has been a very busy month on 17th June our year 6 children took part in the Church School‘s Festival at Lincoln Cathedral. We are thinking of having some chickens but we didn‘t know which sort of chicken to have. Reverend David Lees brought some of his chickens to show us including a very pettable bantam cockerel named Fred. The children were so taken with Fred, whose crowing made them laugh, that we‘ve put our name down for two of his offspring. On 22nd June the children visited the Methodist Chapel in Epworth. They were very keen to meet Fred again, who comes out to meet visitors. The children thoroughly explored the chapel including the vestry, pulpit, balcony and a they had a chance to play the organ. On 23rd June our year 5 and 6 children went on their annual three day residential visit to the PGL centre at Caythorpe Court near Grantham. They children enjoyed lots of different activities including archery, climbing the Jacob‘s ladder and raft building. They all came back very tired and it was noted that some of the bathroom wash kits they took hadn‘t been used. On 28th June we had a Tudor workshop in school called A Taste of History. The children dressed up as Tudors, cooked what the Tudor children would have had and tasted it. It wasn‘t all to their taste but they enjoyed the experience. In the afternoon the KS1 children took their food and teddy bears outside for a picnic Congratulations to our brass players who have just taken their music exams, they all passed with flying colours.


At the beginning of July we joined up with other schools and took part in a Quadrupal sporting event at Belton school. We came third!

The 16th Annual Lions Charity Golf day took place at The Lincolnshire Golf course, Hirst Priory on Friday 18th June and a very successful day it proved to be. The day started overcast and gloomy and it looked like we were in for a miserable cold rainy day. However we were proved wrong and the day brightened up allowing the players to do their best. The course was in excellent condition and some very good scores were returned. More than seventy players arrived during the day and the overall Men‘s winner was John West of Sheffield with a score of 42. Second was Daryll Pidd of Crowle on 41 and Mark Hill of Crowle on 40. The Ladies victor on a score of 35 Margaret Baker ,Janet Taylor second on 41 and 3rd Liz Thomson on 33. We would like to thank all those who supported us by playing and an especial thanks to our sponsors for the marvelous support we get from them every year. Without these we would not be able to raise a fantastic ÂŁ1600 for our funds. Thank you all once again and please look out for our next fundraiser which is a dinner in October with great speakers to keep you laughing while we raise money.

Please contact Terry Condliff on 01427 753642 if you need any information about Lions and what we do or ask about membership.

Ropewalk – Westwoodside Calling all residents of Haxey & Westwoodside. The Parish Council are trying to register the Ropewalk on to the North Lincolnshire Council Definitive Map and to do this require evidence forms to be completed by local residents using this walk for the past 20 years plus. If that is you please collect a form from the Library and return to the Parish Office or contact the Clerk. Allotment Open Day The sun shone down on the Allotment Open day accompanied by homemade cakes, tea and coffee prepared by the tenants of the Allotments. Produce was growing well including a European influence in the form of grape vines. North Lincolnshire Council Leader Grant representatives attended and the official opening was a great success. Well done to the Allotment Association for a grand looking site. Please contact Steve Brown the Chairman of the Association if you would like to put your name down for a plot.

Haxey Library North Lincolnshire Council are looking at different ways to run the local library and customers of the Library will be receiving questionnaires from NLC asking for comments on the options that they are suggesting. One option being the future running of the library could be the role of the community rather than the Local Authority and the other option could be a mobile library service which would visit different parts of the village. Please ensure that you complete the questionnaire when received and promptly return them to the address provided at North Lincolnshire Council.

The Isle of Axholme

Where You Live

Your Local History

Adapted by Anthony Catherall THE DRAINAGE OF THE ISLE OF AXHOLME (continued) The most successful drain was from Tudworth to Althorpe because it carried no water from a river. Vermuyden however made some fundamental mistakes. He took two drains and the New River Torne to Althorpe instead of following the lie of the land to Adlingfleet four feet lower. In the case of the New River Torne he merely made raised banks on the surface of the land to contain the river instead of excavating the hard rock and gypsum. The lands of Vermuyden around Hatfield and Thorne seemed to have been fairly effectively drained, but surrounding areas were still flooded which were not previously. The high embankment on the Dun’s right bank protected lands to the east, but lands to the west around Snaith, Stainforth, Pollington, Sykehouse and Fishlake were flooded whereas previously they had experienced no flooding. In 1630 Richard Bridges wrote to the Lord President of the Council of the North describing the scene around Sykehouse: “ I rode with great difficulty and danger of water; where I was, and yet am, a woeful spectator of the lamentable destruction of my native soil and country. All sorts of people in pitiful distress; some to save their lives; some their goods and cattle; some to get food for their hungry bodies”. He also wrote how mothers were trudging middle deep in water, how the floods had carried corn and hay both cut and standing away. The waters of the New River Torne proved too much for the embankments and much of the land west of Epworth was heavily flooded. The outfall at Althorpe was too small; this also helped to cause flooding. Opposition to the drainage by the local people seems to have been very extensive. The Islonians claimed that their common lands were being taken away despite the Deed of John de Mowbray granting them free use of the commons. The Islonians would also loose their fishing and wild fowling activities. Compensation of £400.00 was granted to cover this. The Islonians were allocated the lowest and therefore the wettest land in the share up. The Court of Sewers dealt with grievances about the drainage and sometimes they compelled the Participants to make improvements. The work seemed to go ahead despite their protests. Violence soon broke out. Dutch workmen were assaulted and their carts and barrows burnt. Vermuyden didn’t help matters by saying that anyone who petitioned the Privy Council in London, against him would be hanged. An embankment near Haxey was broken down fifty times says Sir Philibert Vernatti, one of the participants. Workmen were thrown into the drains and held under with long poles. Mock gallows were set up to terrify the workmen. This damage along with unforeseen difficulties and improvements left the Participants gaining little financial reward from their adventure.

Now & Then – Then & Now By Anthony Catherall Here is Haxey in bygone days and compare to today’s images!

I was delighted to receive this rare card from Steve Goulding of Epworth; he will receive a voucher to enjoy the delights of Jonathan David’s at High Street Epworth. Being an ex Royal Engineer myself, the card was even more poignant to me. Here we see a detachment of 46 men and officers from the 4th West Riding Territorials who formed the Firing Party led by Lieut. Yates of Doncaster. They headed the procession at the funeral of Sapper 50954 Thomas Eustace Preston 15th Signal Company Royal Engineers. Sapper Preston died on duty at Aldershot following a 14-mile route march on 19 February 1915 aged 28 years. He was the son of local Haxey Headmaster of the Church of England School close by Mr John Thomas Preston, (known locally as Tommy) and his wife Clara. The funeral service was conducted by the Vicar (Rev. J.W Shepherd, M.A.), at the graveside in the churchyard of St Nicholas Church Haxey.

Special thanks go to Gavin & Liz Berry of Haxey who helped in my research and led me to Thomas’s grave.

In the lower picture taken on 15 May 2010, the trees are in full leaf now almost covering the same house as above (but much altered now. Notice also the wall that has been halved in the picture below taken on 15 May 2010. A fuller report of the Sapper Preston’s funeral can be found in the Epworth Bells dated Saturday, February 27, 1915 in the Mechanic’s Institute in Epworth.

SEEING THINGS THE OTHER WAY ROUND My parents lived for many years in Eastbourne on the Sussex coast, and so we visited them in that seaside town on a regular basis and loved to walk along the promenade. Apparently, Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, enjoyed doing the same. On one occasion he saw a man with a lady and a child walking a dog along the sea front. The man wanted to show off the dog‘s skill, so he put his walking stick and a large beach umbrella down on the ground and left them there for the dog to pick up. First of all the dog picked up the umbrella, and wedged it between his back teeth, before trying to pick up the walking stick as well. Because the walking stick had wedged his jaw open too far, the dog couldn‘t get any grip with his front teeth, and the walking stick kept falling out. The dog tried over and over again, and then decided the task was impossible. He put the articles down and then, as Lewis Carroll described it, the dog seemed to think the problem out logically until an idea occurred to the animal. Now the dog picked up the walking stick first, and then found it was perfectly easy to take up the umbrella as well. Of course there will be somewhat more difficult tasks facing us this month, but before we get too despondent and give some of them up as impossible, it might be worth thinking about that dog on Eastbourne seafront. That animal encourages us to utter a prayer for grace to see things the other way round and start again.

THE TRENTSIDE CONFEDERATION – SCHOOL NEWS This academic year is now drawing to a close – both of our schools (West Butterwick and St Martin‘s, Owston Ferry) continue to be extremely busy! West Butterwick Infants performed ‗The Garden‘ – a 40 minute concert with lots of nature based songs, supported by information from their Science studies (growing vegetables and knowing what a plant needs to survive). A very interesting and entertaining way to share their learning with others through music and drama. Sport has featured heavily in extra-curricular activities this past month as pupils from both schools participated in Quad Sports with Belton and Wroot. A Multi-skills tournament for our Key Stage 1 pupils takes place on 15th July and we are fortunate to also have a visit from a ‗Golf Professional‘ who will provide us with an insight into playing golf as a job and all that it entails! Furthermore, it should be a very interesting end to theis Summer Term as staff from St Martin‘s take on the Year 6 pupils in the traditional Rounders Match. There is some ambitious design and technology work happening with our older children at the moment. Years 5 & 6 (St Martin‘s) are creating their own fairground ride models and Years 3,4,5 & 6 at West Butterwick have a 2-metre long Titanic model in-the-making, looking absolutely fantastic! We look forward to seeing the finished products and trying them out!! In amongst all of this, our Key Stage 2 pupils visited Magna Science Adventure Centre – a wonderful place with over 100 interactive exhibits providing lots of opportunities to learn through investigation and play. Looking back on a really productive and enjoyable year, we will be holding our Leavers‘ Celebrations on Wednesday 21st July at St Mary‘s and St Martin‘s Churches. We would like to thank all of our Year 6 Leavers for their contributions to our schools over the years and wish them all the very best for the future :- Destiny Wallace, James Whiteside, Maddison Scott, Hannah Hobson, Leah Smith, Luke Willerton, Ben Elliott, Ben Dance, Imogen Attenborough, Olivia Chatwin, Adam Brown, Ryan Duffy, Shane Harrison, Shawn Frost, Louise Reid and Sam Feane. Enjoy the Summer and we look forward to bringing you more school news in the forthcoming new academic year. (Don‘t forget to visit our website for lots more information.

Doncaster Advanced Motorist Taking your Test Dear Readers continued, Mr Bean was the first person to pass the driving test in 1935… fact! But it‘s not that Mr Bean, it was Mr J Beene who paid a grand total of 37p (7d / 6p in old money) to take the test. there were no test centres in 1935 so you had to arrange to meet the examiner somewhere like a post office, train station or town hall. the test was suspended for the duration of World War Two and didn‘t resume until 1 November 1946. In 1975, candidates no longer had to demonstrate hand signals The theory test was introduced in 1996, replacing questions about the Highway Code, during the practical test candidates could book their theory test online for the first time in December 2001 the pass rate in 1935 was 63 per cent compared to 46 per cent in 2009. 1969 saw the first driving test set for an automatic vehicle since 1935 more than 46 million tests have been taken In 1935, when Leslie Hore-Belisha, became the new Transport Minister, he introduced the driving test – first in March as a voluntary test and then it became compulsory in June. During the 1930s safety glass was made compulsory for windscreens after terrible injuries had been caused by accidents in cars with ordinary glass. Seat belts did not appear until the 1950s but were not made compulsory in front seats until 1983. in September 2003. Arm signals out of the window were withdrawn from the test in 1975 and more modern additions to the test have included a theory test in 1996, the hazard perception section of the theory test in 2002 and questions about vehicle safety and maintenance Changes to the test and other safety initiatives, such as improvements to vehicles, have resulted in a reduction in road deaths in Great Britain, which now has some of the best road safety records in the world. In 2008 there were 34 million cars on the road and 2,538 people were killed in road £110 accidents When announcing the introduction of the driving test, Leslie Hore-Belisha said, ―Driving is an art in which those who are engaged should, in the interest of their own and of the public‘s safety; take the greatest pains to make themselves proficient.‖ 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 or Tel: 020 8996 9600 Safe Driving.

As the summer recess approached members at Axholme Camera Club held their Annual General Meeting. Andrew Kershaw, Competition Secretary, was pleased to announce the winner of the Emlyn Perrot Annual Trophy for the highest scoring member overall. This year the winner was Andrew Kershaw of Low Burnham. Individual winners of the Tom Dennis Imaging of Scunthorpe Vouchers were, in Monochrome, Andrew Kershaw and in the Colour section Andrew Kershaw! A clean sweep for Andy, who has now resigned as Competition Secretary due to pressure of work starting a new business, Career Development Services. David Ulyett, retiring Vice Chairman, presented the Prize to a valuable member who has consistently supported the Club and the Members over the last year in many different ways. Kenneth Thompson of Epworth was both surprised and pleased to receive this recognition. The last club competition of the year was held earlier, the subject a projected digital image poster or promotion. The winners of this unusual competition were Jean Goodburne of Hatfield with 20 in both colour and monochrome sections, with Peter Webster, Judy Newton and Andrew Kershaw runners up.
