SPORT IN THE VILLAGE by Susanne Nichols Dear Benwickians, Another great capture of a Fen moment from Aerial View Solutions, I hope you had no disruptions whatsoever, but a great day watching the cyclists race through Benwick. And after all the cycle sport we have now arrived at the Football Worldcup, I already won a pint because my sweepstake country, Iran, won (well, kind of). Whoever bet on Germany, sorry about that... To stay with the sports, the Ladies Wimbledon Final will be honoured at our pub with an Afternoon Tea event. And last month we had National Walking Month. They say, if you want to get into any sport, start slow. So the first 1-2 weeks just put your walking boots on instead of really walking. The idea is that, at one point, you might think, now I’ve got them on, I might as well go and have a stroll. Somehow that sounds almost convincing. I’ll give it a go at one point, but first I do something for my back. I’ll be off, picking strawberries. At our farm shop. They are ripe, and sweet, and plenty. Enjoy life!

PLEASE HAVE A SEAT. NEW BENCHES FOR BENWICK There will very soon be 2 new benches in the Cemetery and in Chapel Gardens.

ALLOTMENT PLOTS FOR RENT SEPTEMBER GARDENS (off Whittlesey Road) Preparation work for the new Allotment Plots are in full swing. Mid June there will be another round of rubbish clearing from the allotment area, then there will be another spray of the weeds arranged. Once that spraying has taken place then hopefully the plots can be marked and then let out. At the moment the Council is looking at a September date for letting, so anyone interested please contact our Parish Council Clerk, Jacquie Richardson.

These benches have been part funded by Ransonmoor Environment Fund. There is also a new bench on order which will be placed near the War Memorial. This bench has been funded by Burnthouse Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund. The Wind Farm funds charitable projects run by constituted groups helping people who live within a 5 mile radius of the Burnthouse Farm Wind.

Please send applications to: Mrs Jacquie Richardson Benwick Parish Council 11 Doddington Road | Benwick | PE15 0UT Email: benwickparishcouncil.clerk@gmail.com Tel: 01354 677856

To celebrate this royal event and raise Cancer Awareness, Benwick in Bloom introduced a display of street art Yarn Bombing. Bloomer Chris Crossan turned her talent to knitting and crocheting to make this wonderful display of Prince Harry and Meghan Markles wedding. Chris has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently undergoing treatment, but despite this she has continued to create this display with more on the horizon to raise awareness.

DOWN MEMORY LANEby Janet Fountain Continuing with a few more notes from Florence Sismeys’s memoirs, in the early 1900’s she states that women were very industrious and good homemakers. They made their own ‘pegged rugs’ from old clothes, cut into strips and pushed through washed sugar bags. These rugs were warm and cosy for the brick floors but were very dusty and heavy to shake. Coco-matting was another floor covering. Nearly every cottage had white net curtains, no doubt purchased from Miss Trivett, the draper, although the other stores had a drapery side. Photo: Emma Rowell, taken at her cottage down The Lane showing the white net curtains

Cleaning was hard work, mats taken outside and beaten with a carpet beater, floors swept and scrubbed, stoves black-leaded and the flues cleaned. With regard to polishing her mother said you need a little ‘Ronuk’ and a lot of elbow grease. (Ronuk was a polish bought for 6d a tin).


Clothing was very different - no manmade fibres, only wool and cotton, with silk and velvet for the richer folk. Dresses were mostly made of serge or a cheap faced-cloth and prints in summer.

Photo: Woman Potato Planting at Hungry Hall Farm. Nell James, Thelma Smalley, Nora Howlett, Nora Buttress, Mrs Missen, Amy Shaw, Edie Fitzjohn

Girls would have a new dress at Whitsun time, large enough for growing, to be worn on Sundays and special occasions for a year, then worn for school, but always protected with a white pinafore. Underwear was all home-made either of calico or flannel. Girls wore two or more petticoats and women wore white aprons. Socks and stockings were woollen, usually hand knitted and very uncomfortable in hot weather. In the 1940’s lisle stockings were fashionable and after the war rayon and nylons became popular. Boots were made of leather and hobnailed. There were no jumpers, cardigans, fleeces or hoodies one either wore a winter coat or none, but older women wore shawls or capes and bonnets. Hats were large and elaborate and worn everywhere. You were very ‘fast’ if you went outdoors without one.


Men and boys mostly wore corduroy trousers and jackets for work, with coarse cloth suits, often black for best with ‘Oxford’ shirts, a very hard wearing material. Cloth caps or straw boaters in summer were the usual headgear.


Babies, both sexes, were dressed in long gowns, made of flannel and trimmed with lace, for ten weeks, then the baby would be ‘shortened’ - put into frocks and petticoats. Boys often wore trousers for the first time on their third birthday.

Photo: The Fountain Family, Emily, William, Albert and Cyril, c1907

When the village women worked in the fields they wore heavy boots and old skirts protected by denim aprons. The print bonnets were made from a piece of cardboard bout 12 inches and a yard of material. The cardboard was formed like a tunnel, covered with the material, tapes sewn about halfway. And the surplus material was gathered at the back and protected the wearer from the sun and the wind.

BOOK CORNER Please send in your favourite books, children books, or audio books no later than 24.08.2018. Germany: Memories of a Nation (History Europe) German history may be inherently fragmented, but it contains a large number of widely shared memories, awarenesses and experiences. Beginning with the fifteenth-century invention of modern printing by Gutenberg, MacGregor chooses objects and ideas, people and places which still resonate in the new Germany - porcelain from Dresden and rubble from its ruins, Bauhaus design, German sausage, the crown of Charlemagne and the gates of Buchenwald, to show us something of its collective imagination. There has never been a book about Germany quite like it. MacGregor will be speaking in Ely later this year, see “bookstore events”. Being German I just couldn’t resist buying this book, Neil MacGregor, after all, is a former director of the British Museum. I didn’t know quite what to expect, but in a way feared that it would be a one-sided story. Not at all, I found it highly interesting, and can honestly say I loved reading it. Susanne’s vote:


ELY TOPPING BOOKSTORE EVENTS Two Toppings treats coming up this autumn which shouldn’t be missed: An evening with Neil MacGregor, 18th Sep 2018, 7:30pm, at Ely Cathedral. Neil MacGregor, former director of the British Museum, has forged a reputation for bringing history to life in an entirely new way with “A History of the World in 100 Objects” and “Germany”. His dazzling, long-awaited new book, “Living With the Gods”, is a panoramic exploration of people, objects and religion over 40,000 years. Neil uses a kaleidoscope of objects, monuments and ideas to illuminate the history of mankind’s beliefs, focusing on the shared narratives that have shaped our societies and our relationships with each other. Ely Cathedral embodies many of the themes in the book: ideas of community and belief, political power and sacred space which makes it a perfect place to hear Neil expound his ideas, accompanied by a slideshow of images. An evening with Yotam Ottolenghi, 7th Nov 2018, 7:30pm, at the Ely Cathedral. Beloved chef Yotam Ottolenghi has a new book, and is coming to Ely to talk about it! He’s the undisputed master of the multi-ingredient recipe, but he also does simple brilliantly. Ottolenghi Simply showcases standout dishes which will suit whatever type of cooking you prefer.



by Otto

Hi everybody, What is it with you lot and your precious cars, I wonder? Oh, you might think, what is he on about? Weeeell, I’ll tell you. The other day, and to be fair, this day was like any other day as this matter happens all the time, so, the other day we went out for a walkie. It was early lunch time, but again, it could have been any time of the day really. So, we are out on our walk, down Doddington Road, but guess what, even where we were walking doesn’t matter, as it happens everywhere these days. Now, we are out on our walk on Doddington Road, down towards the river, and there is a footpath, as you all know. But hey, humans., small or big, dogs, cats, whatevers can’t use the footpath, because every few meters there’s a car parked. I am not talking “standing a little bit in the way”. No, I am actually talking about “standing full on parked on the footpath”!! What do these humans think? Is it that they are scared that oncoming traffic might hit their precious little car? Is it that they think their car shouldn’t park on the side on the road as it would be in the way of traffic and they might have to drive around it?? So, do these humans

think that they are being considerate by parking their tin-can on wheels on the footpath??? Or is it, could it really be, that those tin-can owners don’t think at all???? Let me tell you, I don’t care if the oncoming traffic has to slow down because there is a car (tin-can) parked in the street. Many of the drivers could do with glasses anyway as they seem to find it difficult to see the 30 on their dashboard and mistake it by a 50. Easy mistaka to maka, I guess. I also don’t care if the owner of the tin-cans think they protect their car by parking it out of the road, on the footpath, they should be insured anyway, so nothing to panic about. What I do care about is the following: Little kids, driving safely on the footpath on their shiny little bicycles, they have to drive into the street to get around those silly parked cars. People who aren’t that mobile and are on their way with a mobility scooter or walking stick struggle over the kerb to get around these cars. And finally, me and my friends have to walk on the street to get around these cars. And with “and my friends” I explicitely would like to include cats this time! I am not sure what to do about this, I am just a dog after all, but maybe, as a human, you might have a chat with your mates, to make them understand??? Thanks from the hound.

FORGET ME NOTS by Janet Fountain

Thirteen members and friends enjoyed Ten Pin Bowling at Guyhirn on 25th April. Ernie Fountain won the trophy only just beating Janice Munden. Lunch followed at The Cobblestones in March.

As he was brought up in the village he knew many of us and our surroundings. His little stories caused a lot of laughter. On 7th June we had the Upwood Handbell Ringers to entertain us. They were originally planned to visit us in March but due to the extreme weather conditions postponed until now. Deanna Phillips, the conductress told us about the history of their club and going to Whitechapel to collect the bells. This was very interesting and the group played several songs, after which two of our members had a try at ringing the bells. Our annual quiz and cheese and wine evening will be on Thursday, 5th July. The competition is any item beginning with the letter F. David Palmer, the auctioneer will now be coming for the October meeting instead of August when we will have a Beetle Drive and the competition the letter G. For more information call Janet on 01354 677228.

The Birthday Party in May was a huge success. Darren Tomkins from The Mad Cat at Pidley prepared and served a sausage and mash supper followed by apple crumble and custard. This year was a different format as previously we had always done our own catering for this event. The entertainment that followed was brilliant. Julian (Charlie Chaplin) came again after a break from entertaining.

HAVE A LAUGH! A camel meets an elephant. The elephant asks jokingly: “Why do you have two breasts on your back?” The camel replies: “With a face like yours, I’d just shut up.” *** Two fish in a tank. Says the one fish to the other: “How do you drive this thing?”

There are now four surgeries in the Fenland Group Practice.

Patients from all the four surgeries can telephone any surgery to make an appointment with a Doctor or a Nurse. From the end of last year there is now a daily Duty Doctor Rota to deal with any queries, telephone consultation etc passed on by the receptionists who will ask some questions required by the Doctors to decide what help would be most
