‘Ritings from the Rectory

T

he weather persons on the television tell us it is now Autumn this means that summer is officially over. Yet whatever the weather over the past three months the summer activities still carried on. Barbecues were held; holidays were taken and hopefully enjoyed and the numerous fetes took place despite often brooding dark clouds. Now it is time for harvest thanksgivings, harvest suppers and various harvest services. As we grow ever increasingly older we are often reminded that the Autumn of our life is the season for reflection. I guess this may well be so and yet I also guess that maybe we each need to reflect upon our lives no matter what the season of our life. Remember when you were at school. As the time approached for setting off into the world how many of us were asked ‘What do you want to do?’ And how many and varied were the answers: “astronaut”, “brain surgeon”, “pilot”, “rich and famous” and so on, all sorts of goals as we each dreamed our dreams.

Doing is usoally concerned with how we make our living whereas being goes so much deeper. It relates to our character, to who we really are and how we make a life. Doing is tied to activity and accomplishments, the more tangible things: being has more to do withintangible things, what we actually are deep inside. So maybe, you might like to give some thought to the things that really count. Of course what we do is of vital importance but what we are goes to the very core of all our day to day living. Goal-setting and achieving are important, especially if we are in need of being motivated, but let us consider the harder question ‘What sort of person do I want to be?’ Then listen to your heart, your inner self, indeed listen to God. Sort one or two things to begin with and go for it. You do not need to tell folks, just concentrate time and attention to the target you set. One may take only a short time, another the best part of a life-time. One can be recorded in school reports and work assessments and is easily forgotten: the other requires a life-book, which is on display forever.

With the wisdom of hindsight we may be forgiven for wondering, were we asking the right question. It is possible to do loads of things and yet be a nothing person. www.benwickbugle.co.uk

The Parish Council

W

hat has the Parish council been up to since the elections in May? Unlike many of the village groups, the Parish Council haven’t yet provided a report for the Benwick Bugle, although they used to, so I thought I would have a quick flick through the minutes and see what’s been happening on the council in the past few months. At their first meeting in May, Tony Richardson was elected chair for the year, with Reg Few as vice-chair. In Public Time, a member of FACT (fenland association for community transport) was present and gave information on a survey to try and help with the poor public transport in Benwick.

Keppel-Spoor arranged the planting of the area. It was opened in June. In July the Parish Council were awarded £1000 from FDC to be spent on celebrations for the 2012 Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Cllrs Richardson and Keppel-Spoor met with two people from the county council regarding the Footbridge. Highways decided that the footbridge was in a bad state of repair, and in need of work. The council pointed out to CCC that Benwick must retain the character of the footbridge, and plans will be forwarded to the Parish Council for approval.

The council spent a small sum of money awarded to them for the vilDistrict Councillor Ralph Butcher informed the council that Fenland DC lage tubs and they were replanted by had awarded the Village Hall £100,000 Cllr Keppel-Spoor in June. The council towards the cost of a new building on are still working with the Parish Plan committee to produce an Action Plan. the side of the village hall. The creation of a new extension on the village hall has been under talks with the Parish Council for many months, while certain legal matters are seen to.

The council meets on the first Tuesday each month in the village hall. Meetings are open to the public, with the first fifteen minutes set aside for you to raise concerns, report problems etc. The minutes are published once agreed on www.lilyholtroad.co.uk. You can also find more information on the council, and Agendas.

The new mooring down the river was managed by the Parish Council after they took the project over from the Benwick Residents Association. Cllr www.benwickbugle.co.uk 14

In the Garden

S

tarting a vegetable garden at home is an easy way to save & also gives you the pleasure of savouring a delicious, sun-warmed tomato fresh from the garden. In almost every case, the flavour and texture of varieties you can grow far exceed the best supermarket produce. It’s a great way to spend time with children or have a place to get away and spend time outdoors in the sun. Growing vegetables is probably easier than you think. If you plan it right, you can enjoy a beautiful garden full of the fruits of your labour - without having to spend hours and hours tending it. It’s best to start small with your first garden. Many gardeners get a little too excited at the beginning of the season and plant more than they need -- and end up with wasting food and feeling overwhelmed by their garden. First, take a look at how much your family will eat. Some vegetables such as tomatoes & cucumbers keep providing throughout the season - so you may not need many. Others, ie carrots and corn produce only once. You may need to plant more of these. Once you know what you want to plant, you can figure out how much

space your garden will need.Keep in mind that you don’t need a large space to begin a vegetable garden. If you choose to grow in containers, you don’t even need a yard - a deck or balcony may provide plenty of space. In fact, a well-cared for 10-x-10-foot garden will usually produce more than a weed-filled or disease-ridden 25-x50-foot bed There are three basic requirements for success: Full Sun Most vegetables need 6 to 8 hours of direct sun. If they don’t get enough light, they won’t bear as much and be susceptible to insects or diseases. Plenty of Water Most veg isn’t very drought tolerant, you need to give them a drink during dry spells. Good Soil As with any kind of garden, success starts with the soil. Most vegetables do best in moist, well-drained soil that’s rich in organic matter (compost or peat moss).

A Short History of the Five Alls

I

t’s common knowledge that Benwick once boasted 7 pubs down the High Street. Over the years, six of these closed down and just the Five Alls remains. The Five Alls was orginally just a beer house, not licenced to sell wines and spirits. It had one tap room, which covered half the current bar area. Shortly after World War II a Smoke Room was added. The pub was owned by a number of breweries over the years, from Morgans, Huntingdon Ales (which owned The Bell) to Manns and Watneys. It became a freehouse in 1975 when Tom and Jen Granger bought the pub after Charles and Ethel Chaplin retired. In 1957 Watneys renovated the pub making it one large bar and lounge as it remains today. At this time the indoor toilets were added and a Bowls green was laid. When Charles and Ethel took over the pub in 1936, there were just 14 pint glasses. At this time there was a Morgans sign advertising 12 bottles of ale and stout Top: The Five Alls in early 1900’s for just 2½d. You could also get a pint Middle: Charles & Ethel behind the bar of bitter for 2d or a pint of Mild for 1d.

November’s meeting is the Bingo which is open to everyone – Eyes down at 7.15pm. The August meeting was very well supported. Mr. Cottrell from March brought the Curling equipment and several members thoroughly enjoyed it. The members who were less able either played bingo or scrabble.

We stopped at the mill in the morning for coffee and the freshly baked confectionery and also purchased bread and more cakes to bring home. Some people climbed the steps to the top of the mill. We then moved on to Sheringham for lunch and spent the afternoon there. It did come on to rain so we left at 4.30 and made our way home stopping at the Folkes Arms at Hillington near Kings Lynn for a drink, arriving back at Benwick about 7.30pm. A most enjoyable day!

Get Energy Smart

G

ot better things to spend your money on than electricity bills?

Borrow an energy meter from any Cambridgeshire library free of charge and find out how you could cut your electricity bills by as much as 15%. The meters are easy and safe to use and show how much electricity is being used in your home at any one time. Using a meter can help you see just how much energy is used, for example, by lights in empty rooms, appliances on stand-by or boiling a full kettle. Armed with this information, studies show that households can reduce their bills by 5 -15% by making small changes to use less electricity. Ask to borrow a meter at your local library today and start planning what to do with your savings! Local are in Chatteris, March, Whittlesey, Ramsey & Wisbech.
