elcome to your new look Benwick Bugle! Jane Levicki has decided that due to other commitments, she no longer has time to give the Bugle the attention it needed, and has handed the running of it over to me. I will be keeping the Bugle much the same as it was under Jane’s ownership, but will be making a few changes – which you can read about on page 5. This is your community magazine, and I welcome any contributions to the Bugle, and would like to increase the input from the village, from photographs, suggestions for content and reviews on recent events. I will be trying out a few things in the Bugle which I hope you will like.

New look lilyholtroad

L

ilyholt Road is one of the two websites dedicated to the village, and has been online since September 2007. On April 1st the website was given a complete makeover and redevelopment. Moving on from using Dreamweaver to create the website, it has been professionally redeveloped by Refined Line Web Development, which I run with my friend James Matthews. It now benefits from a number of great new features, and making updates to the website is even easier than before. A forum has been added, so that people can discuss events and other village matters online. I hope that it will become well used, all you need to do is sign up with an account and you can begin posting. There is a news blog which will feature regular posts whenever there is anything going on that affects the village and new updates are added to the website. You can find pages for all the village groups online and all the information

on the website has been revisited, and fully updated. New Image Galleries have been included, so there is now more photographs and they are easier to browse. There is a section of the website dedicated to the Parish council, and you will be able to find minutes and agendas on there for meetings, as well as contact details. A special banner was painted by Lyndsey Green (www.lyndseygreen. co.uk) and features some of the main landmarks of the village. The website also features a great collection of artwork by local artist, Anita Davies. If any other local artists would like their paintings of Benwick featured on the website, I would love to have them. As with the Bugle, all suggestions, comments and contributions are hugely appreciated. www.lilyholtroad.co.uk

A Word from Jane

I

would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their support and encouragement over the last 4 ½ years. I have very much enjoyed producing the Bugle, but in true Hollywood style, I most certainly couldn’t have done it without you! The magazine’s success has only been possible thanks to everyone taking the time to submit their news and articles and the businesses and organisations advertising.

Local Trades

C

oming in the next edition of the Bugle, is a new Local Trades and Services section. This will contain listings for a number of local businesses which you can use as a reference whenever you need one. Listings are just £15 per year, which is £2.50 per edition. It includes a listing on the website too. If you run a business and would like a listing, or you know someone who might - contact me on: mail@benwickbugle.co.uk. Sample Ads: Web Development

I would also like to thank Adam for taking it over so swiftly. I am sure he will do a great job of continuing it, and that you will carry on sending him all your stuff! Best wishes to everyone.

Jane Your Views

E

very one has an opinion. And I would like to have a section of the Bugle where these opinions can be aired, and thoughts shared. I would welcome everyones e-mails and letters on any issues, whether it is about the latest goings on of the Parish Council, a fantastic day out you had recently you want people to know about, or a general gripe. This page is your page. Obviously this section is only going to work if I get contributions from you all. So, how about kicking things of by letting me know what you think about the changes to the Bugle? Anything you can share would be fantastic, so don’t be shy.

School Governor newsletter

I

hope this will be the first in a regular feature of musings and information to appear in the Benwick Bugle, to inform as wide as possible an audience of our activities at the school. News from the Floor I would like to extend a public welcome to our two new Governors, Darren Gore (Parent Governor) and Pat Tickner (Authority Governor). Both have already attended their first meetings and are booked to undertake their induction training so they can fulfil their roles to maximum potential. We do still have a vacancy for a Parent Governor which we must try and fill to work to maximum effect. I am, however, saddened to report the resignation of our Authority Governor, Mrs Michelin, who feels unable to fulfil the role at the moment due to domestic circumstances. I would like to publicly thank her for all her hard work in the time she has been with us and am certain we would not have progressed as far without her efforts. Thank you, Maureen. If you know of anybody in the wider community who would make a good Governor, please ask them to get in touch with me through the school. If we have a wide, diverse range of skills within the Governing Body we are better able to undertake our role. 8

So what do the Governors do? School Governors (as a collective body) are responsible for ensuring that the school progresses in the correct direction, so that all ‘stakeholders’, be they pupils, teachers, parents or the community at large, can be assured that the school will identify any weak areas and work on them to improve. We do this by monitoring how pupils and staff progress towards set goals. The Headteacher comes to us with suggestions as to how she feels progress could be made, and we have to discuss the options and either agree to try them or suggest alternatives. We then set goals throughout the year, so we can check our progress towards the final target. TV in the Dining Room No we haven’t gone mad! There really is a TV in the dining room, and another one in the playground. They will not be broadcasting television programmes but displaying short information films about healthy eating, bullying and school safety (for example). It is a system that has been used in the Health Service for a few years with good effect at reinforcing health related messages. It also has a ‘ticker tape’ stream along it which we will be using to pass information to parents and carers.

www.benwickbugle.co.uk


Child Safety Your children’s safety is our utmost concern, and we hope it is yours too. We therefore would like to point out certain areas that concern us. The car park is for staff only. Please do not park, or turn in this area. It is a dangerous area so parents with young children waiting near the gate must ensure their children are controlled and do not run into or play in this area. As the nights are slowly drawing out and the weather is less inclement it is great to see children out and about enjoying the fresh air, but if your child is going to be out on their cycle please ensure they have adequate safety devices – particularly lights – on their vehicles to keep them safe.

the Friends. There is also the monthly Prize Draw (which I have yet to win), for the minimal cost of £1 per month. We recycle lots of products to try and earn more pennies to spend on the children; one of our biggest earners is ink cartridges from laser and inkjet printers (except Epson). If you have any expired cartridges please do drop them into school. With best wishes until next time!

From the Vaults

C

hicken farmers in Benwick were made to suffer by the presence of a fox in the village. Mr Chas Simsey visited his poultry one Monday to find 42 of his chickens were lying in various parts of the field, many of them minus their heads. As soon as the news leaked out several villagers who had poultry on stubbles went the same evening to safeguard theirs as far as possible. These precautions were insufficient for Mr Ben Savage, who had the misfortune to lose 25 between the Monday evening and Tuesday morning. It was proposed that a party be set up to draw the Coleseed, belonging to Mr Geo Berry, where it was believed the fox was hiding.

Scouts Update

T

he new leaders are nearly ready, they’re fired up and full of enthusiasm and we’ve started planning the activities to run. We’re getting everything in place ready to start after the Easter school holiday. We will be publicising the start date through the school, leaflets / posters around the village, on the Lilyholt Road website, and the Ben Wick facebook page.

y the time you read this I shall have moved into my retirement bungalow in South Wales - is this the last journey in life?

there has been a great deal of that as well but Jesus never promised an easy life.

It’s been great to see people blossom when they realised God had given them many gifts which they hadn’t realised they had-one person springs immediately to mind when I asked her if she could write a puppet script for Time 4t-needless to say she’s probably got a job for life writing scripts! So many lovely people have supported Peter and me and, of course, our ministry, which is an integral part of us.

It’s an adventure following Jesus; it’s an adventure learning of Him. It’s an adventure living for Jesus; it’s an adventure following Him. Let’s go where He leads us, turn away from wrong; for we know we can trust Him to help us as we go along.

We are approaching the season of I sincerely hope so.

Like any adventure and schemed against him, He who had story or film there are painful times as done no wrong was found guilty and led to his death, death on a cross but well as fun and excitement.

In the Garden

T

his new section is sponsored by Delphland Nurseries (see the advert) and aims to get you into the garden. Everyone can find some room to grow some veg, fruit or just a few flowers.

Strawberries - one of the most popular fruits that can be grown with ease. You will be able to find strawberry plants in all the garden centres now, and it is a great time to plant them out into your garden. If you have room for them in the ground, then great, but they can also be grown easily in containers. There are a number of different containers which perfectly suit strawberries, such as the one pictured right. If growing them in a container, ensure that water can drain since strawberries hate waterlogged soil. Ideally, position your container in full sun, and away from the wind.

At Lourish, you can swap surplus fruit and veg for free. You can also trade your eggs, chutneys, pickles, plants and seeds. Take a look at the website to find out more.

Keep an eye out for slugs - which like to munch on the strawberries, and birds which can quickly steal your crop. Protect the plants with netting it possible to keep the birds at bay. To deter slugs, put down slug pellets, or broken egg shells. Think this section could be done better? How about writing it yourself? If you have any tips or guides for the Garden then please get in touch I welcome any comments and suggestions! www.benwickbugle.co.uk 21

You will know when strawberries are ready due to their distinctive red. Pick them straight away to stop them rotting on the plant.

Tickets are only £5 each and are available from Doreen on 658910 or Angela on 740333 or Pauline on 740759 or Elaine on 07585603600 or myself. Do you think that you can work out who the murderer is? Come along and find out how good a sleuth you are!

If you are a patient already registered at either the Doddington or Wimblington Surgery then you are automatically a member of the Patients Participation Group. So why not come along to the next meeting to find out more and express your views? Our next meeting is at 6.30 on Thursday 7th April at the Doddington Surgery – and find out what changes are happening to YOUR NHS services?
