Visit the Fenland Museums

F

enland has five local museums, each of which contain a large range of historic artifacts and photographs from bygone days. March Museum houses the old clock from Benwick Church, and both Ramsey and Whittlesey Museums also contain fantastic displays. Below is some more detail on Chatteris and Wisbech Museums, both of which are well worth a visit one rainy day this summer.

Chatteris

Wisbech

Chatteris Museum is located down Church Lane, sharing the building with Chatteris Town Council. It is open Thursdays 2pm-4:10pm and Saturdays 10 am - 1pm - Entry is FREE.

Wisbech Museum is located at Museum Square, and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10-4. Admission is free.

The museum has a collection of around 3,000 photographs in its archives as well as many displays. The main display room contains items such as the town Stocks, and old church Pulpit. Another room, the Barn contains displays of old farming implements which would have once been used across the Fens. The Transport Room contains memorabilia from Chatteris Railway station, as well as an old penny farthing and old police and fire service items. The shop houses numerous displays such as old advertisements and products which would have once stocked Chatteris shops.

The main gallery is home to a collection of fossils and sparkling minerals, all of which have been in the museum since it opened in the 1800’s. The museum also has a display from The Post Office and Shop in Elm, which include examples of items sold in a bygone era. The upper gallery is home to military displays which show the development of the armed forces in the area. There is also a collection of artifacts from the 19th century workshops and homes, where you can see the old petrol iron - which was abandoned... due to its tendency to explode. In the Townshend room there is a small collection of items from around the world, such as a mummified hand mounted in a gilt frame from ancient Egypt. There are also canopic jars, amulets and mummified animals.

There are also displays of fossils found in Chatteris, and an extensive collection of documents, maps and other artefacts. www.benwickbugle.co.uk

School Governors Newsletter

T

his time of year is filled with mixed feelings for many of the pupils and staff – looking forward to a well-deserved break to enjoy some (hopefully) fine weather, but also a degree of trepidation about what September will bring, especially those Year 6 students who will be moving on to pastures new. Unfortunately we will be having our own minor ‘Cabinet Reshuffle.’ With the variance in class sizes and the impact this has on our school budget, we are unable to continue with a four-class structure. Because of this we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Herselman at the end of term. We will certainly miss her and wish her well in the future, where we are sure she will make a success of her position at a new school.

the Governing Body over the past few months due to new business ventures, but do wish those that remain all the very best of luck and skill. This means that there are further vacancies on the Governing Body, for interested parents or members of the community. It is your school and if you want to see it flourish and provide the best education for the pupils then it is down to you to ensure the Governing Body is filled. When we return after the summer break, we will be holding elections for Parent Governors to boost the current committee to fullstrength, so please volunteer. Those of you who ‘friended’ us on Facebook will have noticed that the Benwick Governors account has deactivated. Following advice from the County Council regarding the use of Facebook by educational establishments, the Governing Body felt that it was inappropriate to continue the trial period. We will continue to communicate indirectly through social networking sites via links sent to the community pages (Ben Wick) to direct people to information on the school website.

Also leaving are two experienced Governors. Alan Strong has been an integral part of the Governing Body for 10 years and has been a supportive and loyal Vice-chair. We will all miss his skills and enthusiasm greatly. I am also standing down from the end of term, and would like to wish Stewart Lacey, the Chair Elect, every success as he takes the helm. I have no doubt he will be a forthright and dependable Chair. I have unfortunately found it increasingly difficult to devote my time to www.benwickbugle.co.uk 12

The AGM will be held on Monday September 26th at 7pm in the school. This year it will be even more important than usual for everyone interested in the future of FOBS to attend. In previous years we have always had a core team intending to continue in the following year. This year, much of the committee will not be standing for re-election so some new blood will be needed.

In the Garden

W

hy not dip a toe into the world of Garden Design? Embarking on a new landscaping project is a great way to explore your artistic and creative side, while also adding value to your home. The proper use of plants, trees, shrubs and flowers can draw attention to your property and accentuate parts of your home’s architecture and landscape. You could attempt this on your own or, involve a Garden Designer/Landscaper who will be able to offer their professional advice and the kind of knowledge that is only gained from experience.

The first step in starting a landscape project is figuring out your budget. Do some research, hard landscaping is expensive so if you’re on a tight budget, think about just how much patio or deck you actually need, plan these areas meticulously and make every inch count.

think BBQ. Proper lighting and good planting will add to this experience to give you a tranquil environment to relax in. Creating a garden is, without doubt, an art form and should always be approached in this way. A great Garden Designer and Landscaper can save you money and time by helping you with their knowledge of what plants, flowers and trees will thrive in your location and educate you on how to properly take care of your landscaping to keep it healthy. They can also introduce you to new ideas and techniques that you may not have thought of on your own. But having said all that, there is little in life as rewarding and creating something yourself. From the initial inspiration, perhaps an idea for just a small corner, then seeing it grow and develop into a fully formed plan. Often you will make changes during the construction and planting stage as the project becomes more visceral until eventually it is complete and you can stand back and enjoy the feeling of satisfaction and achievement and your friends and visitors praise your great work.

Another great element to a landscaping project is that you can choose to add functionality to your home. This can be in the form of outdoor living areas, such as courtyards, walkways, arbors or a gazebo. These can enhance your quality of life by allowing you to James Gardner spend time with friends and family Garden Designer & Landscaper outside and will come in handy when www.gardnersgardens.co.uk having social gatherings or parties, just www.benwickbugle.co.uk 14

‘Ritings from the Rectory

A

young lad came rushing out of Sunday School desperately seeking one of his parents.

On sighting his father he grabbed him and yelled, “Man, that story of Moses and all those people crossing the Red Sea was great!” Dad smiled gently and asked to be told about it. “Well, the Israelites got out of Egypt, but Pharaoh and his army chased after them. So the Jews ran as fast as they could until they got to the Red Sea. The Egyptian Army was gettin’ closer and closer. So Moses got his walkie-talkie and told the Israeli Air Force to bomb the Egyptians. While that was happening, the Israeli Navy built a pontoon bridge so the people could cross over. They made it!”

aries where you need great emotion and much imagination if you are to make them interesting. Let’s face it religion needs a few miracles! So the secular world grows ever more sceptical and mocks the history of the Israelite nation just as it mocks the birth of the Son of God and all that follows. Yes, it would take an age to try to account for some of the things that happened - the fish that filled the nets; what brought Lazarus back from the dead; why Jesus’ body has never been found; how come the Bible is still around. Smart, keen-thinking sceptics don’t have to worry about explaining things like that. It’s much easier to totally deny the miraculous, which is all well and good until they wish to celebrate Christmas or get to the point when they need miraculous help in crossing life’s final river.

By now Dad was rather surprised, to say the least. “Is that the way they taught you the story?” “Well, no, not exactly,” the lad admitted, “but if I told What happens then? you the way they told us, you’d never Well, if I told you what the Bible really believe it, Dad.” says, you’d never believe it! If you do In his innocence the lad hit the nail fon want to know do call in to see us, you would be most welcome and we really the head of the world of adults - cool scepticism reigns supreme. It’s either would love to see you. black or it’s white, fact or fiction - but there can be no space for the miraculous. Let’s leave the miracles to children’s fiction; to stained glass sanctu-

As we announced last month, Dr Liz Mather, who for the past twelve years has worked at the Cornerstone Practice in March, joins us in September. We have decided to have an open evening in September to ‘Meet Dr Mather’ – please look out in next month’s issue for full details.

Short mat Bowls is much like outdoor bowls, with the aim being to get your bowls nearer to the jack than your opponents. In the middle of the track, there is a block, which you must curve your bowl around. It is an extremely entertaining game and the club is open to members of all ages.

If you are a patient already registered at either the Doddington or Wimblington Surgery then you are automatically a member of the Patient Participation Group.

It costs just £2.50 to play. Come along to the Village Hall on September 8th to give it a go. For more information, contact Patricia Tickner on 01354 677279

Scout Group News

I

t’s been very busy since we restarted in May. The Cubs have all passed their Cyclist badge, and have been working toward their Local Knowledge badge – learning mapping skill and talking to local historian Janet Fountain. They also recently had a visit from the local police PSCO’s who brought along one of the vans. Those of you who live near the school may well have heard the cubs’ enthusiasm for setting off the siren. Probably the second most popular activity of the evening was getting locked in the “cell” at the back of the van. The Beavers went on their first camp ever. We had been invited to attend a joint camp with the 1st Doddington Beavers. Before the event the Julian & Liz (the beaver leaders) were nearly as excited as the children! Here is Liz’s account of the camp.

knots, along with putting up their own tents before they went to bed. We had our dinner outside under the shelter with thunder and lightning storms going on, but everyone still managed to keep smiling and even sang ‘Singing in the Rain’. We sang songs around the camp fire, which all the Beavers thoroughly enjoyed especially ‘Do You Know the Muffin Man’ where both Leaders and Beavers were dancing around the camp fire arm in arm. They listened to a great story about ‘Cecil the Caterpillar’ and went on an adventure looking for them on the trees around the camp with torches as by this time it was quite dark. The evening was set off by drinking hot chocolate and having toasted marshmallows before setting off to our tents.

The Beavers had a really great time as they did make some good friends and learnt some new skills which, of Our first Beaver camp was a great course, is what Scouting is all about. It experience for both leaders and new was very nice of Doddington to invite Beavers.
