EDITORIAL Welcome to this summer’s issue of the Bugle. And we hope the summer is going to be a good one for you! If you’re at a loss for activities for the children, have a look at the Benwick Butterflies Holiday Club programme on page 10. There are bound to be activities there that grab their attention. Don’t forget the Picnic between the Bridges on Sunday August 31st, with Balloon Race and Duck Race - page 8 for more details. You may well have heard of Benwick resident Emily Shepperson’s recent success in the Oasis Dream Lunch competition. Generously, her proposal that won her first place was to arrange a lunch for the whole of Benwick! Emily tells us how it came to be on page 4 and we are looking forward to finding out more!! The answers to last issue’s quiz are on page 22. There is no puzzle in this issue I’m afraid as there was no spare space. But I would really like to hear which type you like best - quizzes, word searches, crosswords, or something else. Or perhaps you don’t like any of them! Please do let me know at mail@benwickbugle.co.uk. I would also love to feature puzzles written by any of you please do send them in! The deadline for the October/November Bugle is September 20th. Have a great summer.

Jane Benwick WI Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7.30pm in Benwick Village Hall. Visitors are welcome to attend any meeting.

Benwick Wins £30,000 Dream Lunch with Oasis! Benwick resident Emily Shepperson has won a competition to hold a Dream Lunch worth £30,000 by proposing to hold the event for the whole of Benwick! Emily tells us all about it. I am a keen comper and enter about 100 competitions a day. I had seen the Oasis £30k Dream Lunch competition advertised on television but hadn't had time to write anything. I finally decided to enter an hour before the deadline so quickly wrote that I would have a huge lunch for everyone in Benwick. I wanted sandwiches and hotdogs and every dessert possible. I thought it would be a lovely idea to have a carnival afterwards to make the lunch last right up until teatime ... (as us Benwick people call it!) I remember my Grandad talking about Benwick Feast and how much everyone had enjoyed it and what a community event it had been. It's always worth a go as I knew that if I didn't enter that I couldn't possibly even be picked as a finalist. I was amazed when I found out I was one of the 5 finalists and all that was against us was collecting enough votes through Facebook. (Facebook for those that don't know is a social networking site on the Internet) I have lots of 'comping' friends and also a great amount of friends that would share it with everyone too. Posters went up around the village, round places of work, an announcement made at the Village Sports day and basically everyone I met knew about it. The other 4 finalists had great ideas for the money including refurbishment of a nurses staff room, a meal up a pylon in Wales, a huge sandwich and even a wedding reception. I made it my mission to start as I meant to go on so when voting opened we were in the lead. Voting then was postponed after a week and all the votes reset ~ nightmare! I had to start again with pestering everyone to re-vote. The percentages kept fluctuating but Benwick regained the lead. I had to keep at it for another week as it was going to end at midnight on the following Wednesday. All of my Facebook friends got involved and votes were coming in from everywhere. Friends, friends of friends and their friends were all being told that they needed to help Benwick win this great lunch ~ votes coming from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Greece, Canada, USA and even Australia. There are many hundreds of people that now know Benwick is on the map. The minutes ticked by so slowly as midnight came and then it was over. We achieved 57% with the person in 2nd getting just over 30% of the votes. It took a good four days for them to confirm that we had won but then it was official. It was plastered all over their Facebook page. Benwick had won! So that's it, we are having a party. A huge party. A huge party worth £30,000. I will keep the Benwick Bugle informed of the progress of it all and a date and location in Benwick will be announced. Hope to see as many of you there as possible and I hope you all have a truly fabulous day. If you don't enter then you certainly won't win but if you do enter, there's always a chance! 4

Friends of Benwick Church Report for 2009 We continue to operate as a formally constituted organisation with a Board of Trustees who meet every month and who in turn report to the PCC which meets fours times a year and is currently chaired by our Methodist Minister Rev. Manny Pillay. We also have a steering group with all the Ministers and the Archdeacon who also meet approx. four times a year.

During 2009 we continued to hold our usual events being Burns Night Supper, Picnic by the River and the Christmas bazaar, we also held a tombola and an informal quiz evening and an additional event in 2009 was our ABBA evening which raised over ÂŁ1000. All the events held made a profit with the proceeds going towards the building of the New Church in Benwick. Funds raised currently stand at approx. ÂŁ140k of which we currently retain a bank balance of approx. ÂŁ120k.

Our main focus now is the procedures and legalities around getting the Church built on the side of the village hall, however with so many parties having to be involved this is becoming very difficult. We are in constant dialogue with all solicitors, councils and governing bodies, this stage of the process was not expected to take as long as looks likely but we continue to push along.

2010 has begun with a successful Burns Night supper with over 80 guests enjoying the evening and raising money. We shall continue with our annual events this year and will also add a few small fund raisers along the way.

Finally our thanks go out as usual to the good people of Benwick and beyond for the support and help in whatever form that takes, without these people the project would not be were it is. We acknowledge and thank all bodies involved but especially for the help of the main committee of loyal members who continue to meet monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month, these are a wonderful bunch of people and there help is essential, if anyone wants to join us you will be most welcome.

Many thanks to all.

HOME-START FENLAND NEEDS VOLUNTEERS Kid’s going back to school? Time on your hands? Want to do something worthwhile? Home-Start Fenland Needs Your Help Home-Start Fenland is a voluntary organisation offering support, friendship and practical help to young families in their own homes. We cover March, Whittlesey and Chatteris and the villages in between. The service is free and confidential. Being a parent wherever you live or whatever your situation is not easy. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. Some parents lose confidence in their ability to cope and most can remember a time when they would have liked someone to turn to. How Can Home-Start Help? Home-Start volunteers visit regularly, offering friendly support, understanding (Home-Start volunteers are parents too!), reassurance, a listening ear and confidentiality. Volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds. They need no specific qualifications, but they do need the ability to listen with understanding, to maintain confidentiality and a commitment to the Scheme and the families they visit. Full training and support are provided. A preparation course for volunteers is starting in September 2010. For further details contact Alison Fisher on 01354 655900 or e-mail at home-start-fenland@care4free.net.

Rev’d Val Fernanadez, The Rectory, Ingles Lane, Doddington, March, Cambs. PE15 0TE 01354 742715 E.mail: revval@btinternet.com

‘Ritings from the Rectory Dear Friends This will be my last letter for a while as I am now on sick leave recovering from surgery, but others will be writing on my behalf. Friday Night Live is going very well, if you haven’t been then why not pop along to St Mary’s on a 2nd Friday in the month to experience some lively singing and some thought-provoking comments. Rocky’s Plaice Holiday Bible Club starts 10.00 Monday – Friday 9-13 August in Thomas Eaton School, booking essential. Please contact Ruth Houlding on 742421 for further details. Starting on 12 September there is to be a weekly Sunday School during term time 11.15 in St Mary’s (see separate article) As it’s the holiday season and a hopefully a slower pace for most people thought you might enjoy pondering over the following: Try to find 18 books of the bible in this paragraph and underline them. Once I made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. Some people keep looking so hard for the facts but for others it is a revelation. Some get in a jam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalised, but the truth will finally strike hoe for numbers of you. To others, it is a real job. I want it to be a most fascinating time for you. Yes, there will be some easy ones for you to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will admit it usually takes a minister to find all 18 books and there will be loud lamentations when they are found. It may be a fluke if you get them all. One lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, consider at them at the Weatherspoon Inn or I might choose another sentence. Have fun! God Bless Val

From the Registers Weddings For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5 Jade Emma Brighty & Robert Clive Thompson Baptisms and Thanksgivings Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.” If you would like to know more about our services of Baptism and Thanksgiving please contact Revd Val Fernandez Annabelle Pippa Patching Elise Webb

Knighthood of Sir Ernest Shepperson - Benwick's own Knight! This magazine piece on the right, date unknown, reports the knighthood of Sir Ernest Shepperson. Thanks to Adam of www.lilyholtroad.co.uk on which this article was found. Wikipedia* lists Sir Ernest Whittome Shepperson (October 1874 – 22 August 1949) as a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom. He was Member of Parliament for Leominster from 1922 to 1945. He was made a Baronet on 20 June 1945, of Upwood in the County of Huntingdon. The title became extinct on his death. * www.wikipedia.com
