Two of the photographs submitted by Sonny Hamid taken at the Cenotaph outside the Church on Remembrance Sunday on 11 November 2018 commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day. The signing of the Armistice took place on the

"eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.


FROM PARISH COUNCIL MEETING HELD ON 15 OCTOBER 2018 We are still looking for people to join the Parish Council. We still have FIVE vacancies which means we can’t do as much as we need to or would like to do. At present SEVEN of EIGHT councilors live in Burbage. We could really do with someone from Leigh Hill/Durley/ Ram Alley to represent their ‘patch’ and another councilor for Stibb Green. If you think you can help, have something to offer and can spare the time please contact the Clerk.


Neighbourhood Plan: The final date for representations was Thursday 13 September 2018. I’m pleased to be able to say that our plan has been adopted and it will now be ‘applied’ to ALL Parish planning applications.

Rubbish: Litter seems to be a problem particularly on collection days. Could I ask that you make sure your paper rubbish in particular is secured in a bin so that the high winds in the Autumn do not redistribute it! We are purchasing additional litter bins for the playgrounds and East Sands. Regrettably, Wiltshire Council will not add new bins to their list for emptying so the Parish will have to meet the cost.

PARISH COUNCIL Speeding: Continues to be a problem and some drivers continue to behave aggressively towards Speedwatch and other drivers with the good sense to behave responsibly. I suspect no amount of road signs, markings or flashing lights will deter those who consistently speed so it’s down to the rest of us to try and educate offenders. I’ve also been reminded that since March 2015, the speed limit for tractors on public roads has been 25mph.

Notes from Parish Council Meeting held on 14th November 2018 below: We’ve fixed the budget for the year and hope to set the Parish Precept at our next meeting. It’s clear that the Parish is going to have to take on more responsibilities as Wiltshire Council does less. In 2019 we are going to have to spend more on village maintenance, including road sweeping, clearing gullies and emptying litter bins and this will have a cost. That said, we do not expect to raise the Precept for 2019 but will rely on reserves.

We also need to refurbish the phone boxes – the one at Durley appears to have been the victim of vandals! This is a lot of work and progress will be dictated by Councillors availability. We could do with some help;

we still have FIVE vacancies on the Council.

During 2019 we intend to resurrect the CCTV project that was put on hold until the work on the Neighbourhood Plan was completed.

A welcome success for the Friends of the Three Horseshoes as the change of use to Residential has been refused. It remains to be seen if there will be an appeal against the decision.

The Roads

Plans to introduce a 20mph speed limit on roads bounded by the High Street, Taskers Lane and the Hungerford Road are progressing well and survey of traffic at the Warren has been undertaken. The results are awaited.

Speeding and tractors continue to be a problem in the Parish. Apparently a horse and rider were ‘spooked’ by a tractor a few weeks back. Drivers, please be considerate and cautious particularly in the winter months when the roads are often muddy and visibility is sometimes poor.

Now that the St Dunstan’s Field development is complete we are anticipating the transfer of the land by Seymour Pond that will enable us take full responsibility for the pond and its curtilage.



Other theories suggest that Stonehenge was a place of healing.

Appropriately for the date (21st June) the subject of our talk was Stonehenge.

The first thing she pointed out was that there are many theories about Stonehenge, its construction and function and these continually change. Many have thought it built by aliens and although much investigation has suggested otherwise, there still remains mystery attached.

Stonehenge was built in phases, the first around 3,000 BC comprised a circle of stones within the bank, and the Aubrey holes, named after the C17th century person who discovered them. These were found to contain cremated bones, indicating the remains of important people. (The Aubrey Holes may have originally been used to erect a circle of Welsh bluestone. In 2,500BC an inner circle of sarsen stones was added. They were dug up from Avebury, taking two hundred men two weeks. They were shaped into rectangular stones making the thirty one uprights and thirty one horizontals arranged in a circle and the blue stones were moved inside it, rearranged some three hundred years later.

Stonehenge is the only joined up stone circle in the world.

The first builders were tall skilled craftsmen.

Cheryl Corcoran, who is a guide at Stonehenge, very kindly stepped in to do this at the last minute. She showed immense enthusiasm and passion for her subject and we were enthralled. Clearly a very talented speaker, she needed neither notes nor screen presentation to capture everyone’s interest. We were given some handouts showing plans of early Stonehenge maps and photos.

Henge means ditch or bank. Stone henges were for the dead and Wood for the living.

The construction is intriguing. A knob of stone on top of the uprights fits a hole on the horizontal rather like a simple form of Lego. In one case examination of a fallen horizontal revealed a mistake had been made – the hole was carved in the wrong place and had had to be redone! It just goes to show, even tall, skilled craftsmen sometimes get it wrong!

It was ten thousand years ago that people visited Stonehenge and during the 1960’s, pits were discovered containing posts identified as totem poles. At nearby Durrington Walls, Mike Parker Pearson of Sheffield University discovered huts where pigs had been kept in 2400BC. He suggested that Stonehenge was part of a ritual landscape, joined to nearby Durrington Walls by their Avenues and the River Avon. Their dead were transported by boat on the River Avon to the Avenue which leads into Stonehenge.

It was thought that the stones were dragged to the coast and taken by raft on river and sea, modern experiments revealed that they would have sunk, so another theory is that many men would have carried each stone and that it was


WOMAN’S OWN considered an honour to be chosen for this task. After 1000 years it was vacated and left for anyone to remove bits, or carve their names on the stones, as did Sir Christopher Wren. In 1919 it was bought by Cecil Chubb for his wife who didn’t actually want those kind of rocks! She donated to the nation to kindly repair.

Storyline is about Charity Hope Valentine who longs to escape her employment at the Fandango Ballroom, searching for luxury and romance, but always seems to fall for the wrong man. The show was given a modern twist and interesting ending by Watermill Artist Director, Paul Hart and musical supervisor Sarah Travis who have in the past directed (amongst other shows) Crazy for You and A little Night Music which Woman’s Own have also had the pleasure of seeing. We were a much smaller party of Woman’s Own members and friends, than in previous years, some clearly missed a treat! The heatwave over and unsettled conditions had prevailed for the past few day, but the weather was pleasant enough by the evening to sit in the lovely gardens and enjoy a pre-dinner/ pre-show drink. Thank goodness the heatwave was over, an intimate auditorium would have been

August The annual Watermill theatre trip took place on 16th August, to see the much acclaimed musical comedy, Sweet Charity. A large, energetic, and as usual multitalented cast and songs we all knew: If my friends could see me now, Rhythm of life, I’m a brass band, and Big Spender, kept us entertained to the very high standard we have come to expect from this wonderful little theatre. Music was by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Dorothy Fields. [6]

WOMAN’S OWN September

wives, some of which were read to the recipients by his son Lesley, a serving officer! Lesley, sadly, was among the seventeen fallen.

September’s illustrated talk was “Remembering the Great War 100 years on”, by James Oliver, appropriately as we approach the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice.

Many Burbage women were Voluntary Aid Detachment workers some on the land, or in industry, some nurses, notably Reverend Sands’ daughter, Olive, covering jobs left vacant by men at the front.

It is a massive subject and James tackled it expertly, and with relevance to the Village. In 1914, Burbage was a parish of small hamlets, numbering about one thousand one hundred inhabitants, from which one hundred and ten men from the Village served in the war, many in the Wiltshire Regiment.

James covered the main events of the land conflict, both in Europe and the Middle East and talked about the naval battles. He also talked about two women who were involved in the conflict: Dorothy Lawrence who longed to be involved in active service and disguised herself as a man to become a Sapper, until she was discovered, and Gertrude Bell who was in the Diplomatic Corps and worked alongside

As we know seventeen were killed and a further seventeen severely injured. It was a farming community with some employment from the railways and was largely self sufficient. The vicar, Hubert Sands wrote war reports in the parish magazine to keep the villagers informed of events at the front and also wrote letters on behalf of the less literate

Gertrude Bell - assigned to Army Intelligence Headquarters, Cairo in 1915 for war service, along with T E Lawrence.

As a writer, traveller, political officer, administrator and archaeologist, she explored, mapped and became very influential to British Imperial policy in the Middle East. She was said to be the most powerful woman in the British Empire.

IT’S A STITCH UP The Village Wall-hanging Earlier in the year it was suggested to the It’s A Stitch Up group that as this year marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of First World War, it would be appropriate if we had some kind of stitched wall hanging as a remembrance. We we hoped that it could be displayed in Church as a place where it could be viewed any day and also be near to the War Memorial. The plan was to invite anyone who wished, not just It’s A Stitch Up members, to contribute by producing a six inch square, stitched, knitted, crocheted, appliqued, felted, embroidered – in all or any of the above techniques and whatever else appealed - as indeed they did. Everyone who has contributed has generated their own design resulting in a wonderful diversity of work. During the summer term, Norma Borthwick, Helen Colling and Linda Peters worked with groups of 7-8 year olds from Burbage Primary School, kindly chosen by their teacher, Mrs McGarry. They each decided on their designs and we helped them with fabrics and stitching, if needed. Often they were very capable of doing

everything themselves - and we were very impressed! The design of the hanging was made as early as May and this and the finished squares were displayed at the Annual Parish Meeting and again at the Gala Café in July. Squares were still coming in throughout August and early September – forty nine altogether; they were all lovely, all very different, and ready to be assembled as a wall hanging! Permission was given for it to hang in All Saints’ Church, for which we are very grateful. All we had to do was complete it. It was getting exciting, but a little daunting. At this point an angel appeared in the form of Alison Dunton! She very kindly offered to start backing them, purchase the fabrics and organise the stitching of them onto the background (all 70 x 53 inches of it!). Groups worked on this at the October It’s A Stitch Up meeting and some extra sessions.

IT’S A STITCH UP John Francis has been working very hard to photograph each square, in order to make a photo book; the resulting pictures are excellent. This, when complete, will be displayed in Church. Very grateful thanks to those who have worked so hard on this project, and a very big thank you to the Parochial Church Council for their support. It is now hanging in Church – and was on time for Remembrance Sunday! There for all to see, a Burbage memorial of the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice. It looks absolutely wonderful. Please do come and see it, the Church is open every day, just pop in. By the end of the year there will be a photo book to accompany it, showing all the pieces of work and the names of all the artists.

Burbage & District Model Railway Club JULY: The Clubs July session was dedicated almost entirely to the Great Bedwyn layout (as it appeared in the 1960’s), a project we started building some three months ago. Most of the effort during the session was given to the wiring of the control panel which contains the electrical switches for the traction supplies and push buttons for changing point settings to suit the traffic routing. The Panel is a sheet steel plate mounted on a timber supporting framework with the artwork depicting the actual track layout on the baseboard. The underside of the panel resembles the switches and lights one may expect to see in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet! Very impressive indeed.


Some time was also dedicated to taking inventory of the items kindly denoted to us by local residents. It was time to decide what we could use and where and the remaining items sold to raise more funds for our layout construction. We are still looking forward to receiving photographs and sketches of the prototype of the Great Bedwyn layout as it existed in the 1960’s: any information will be very helpful to us while we continue to construct the layout. For our August session we intend to continue working on the Great Bedwyn model layout.

Burbage & District Model Railway Club AUGUST: Our August session was focused entirely on the Great Bedwyn layout (as it appeared in the 1960’s), a project we started building some four months ago. The track layout is now much as it was in the 1960’s and we are constantly checking it against published material we have been collecting. The layout has been seen by some folks who used the station at that time and confirm it is looking very much like they remembered and what the real layout looked like at that time. We are now progressing to complete the electrical wiring to the points and traction supplies and this involves wiring the underside of the baseboard and the control panel which is starting to resemble more like the cockpit of a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet.

Work has also commenced on the construction of the model of the existing road bridge over the railway line. Measurements have been taken from the bridge as it appears today then scaled down the dimensions which we will use for construction purposes. Some of the publications show a stream on the south side and this will be our next piece of modelling work. We are still looking forward to receiving photographs and sketches of the prototype of the Great Bedwyn layout as it existed in the 1960’s: Any information will be very helpful to us so that we can replicate the real layout in our model project. For our September session we intend to continue working on the Great Bedwyn model layout.


Burbage & District Model Railway Club SEPTEMBER:


At our September session Members continued working on the Great Bedwyn 1960’s layout.

Work on our Great Bedwyn Project continued during the October session.

We worked on several different aspects of its construction. Some more carpentry on the baseboard was undertaken to enable the layout to be folded during storage and much time and effort was devoted to the electrical part of the layout. The most complex task was to develop a “Truth Table” for motorised points so that we can build a diode matrix to operate the points for route setting. The track layout arrangement during the 1960’s was more complex than what one can see today. Our next task is to plan the painting of a scenic back drop for the length of the layout. The work for this item will start from photographs ‘stitched’ together from which an artist can draw the scene in acrylic paint. This part of the work will require artistic skills so any one with these skills who canhelp us is most welcome. Our plans for next month’s session are to continue working on this layout.

We worked on the electrical control system developing a matrix chart for route setting, switching and an overall track layout as it appeared during the 1960’s. Construction continued on several different aspects of the layout and the road bridge as it appeared in the 1960’d was also completed. At our next session we plan to work on developing the scenery and the stream that ran alongside the Down track. We are aiming to complete the layout in time for the History Show in Great Bedwyn sometime during early summer 2019. The Club was very pleased to receive a repeat invite from the organisers of the Inter-county Model Railway Show to exhibit any of our layouts. We are considering developing another layout for the 2019 Show. The Club welcomes new members and also any donations and gifts of unwanted model railway items. So, if you would like to try your hand at this hobby or have some equipment you are not using, please feel free to call me on the number shown below:

BURBAGE & DISTRICT CAMERA & VIDEO CLUB JULY: During the July session, the Club had some interesting photographic projects and some discussions on future projects. Our session started with a visit to Hackpen Hill to try and capture the sunset landscape, sadly, the weather was not too photographer friendly as a slight haze partially obscured most of the distant view. Nevertheless, it seems Members enjoyed their trip out and took many interesting images. Many also discovered new ways to use their camera’s facilities in the lighting conditions that prevailed. On our return to the Club Room at the British Legion we were met by representatives of the Bruce Trust, a charity organisation that provides specially made vessels for use by disabled persons. We were briefed on the background of the Trust and also their requirements for photography, both still and video. Still photography will be of two genres: reportage and artistic while we will develop a storyboard for a short film on the pleasures of narrow boat holidays on these specially made vessels.

The same evening, we were also approached separately by the organisers of a project by school children to commemorate the Centenary of the Great War. The project will require children to collect information on persons who fought in the Great War and prepare a presentation and it is here we are asked to provide support. Typically, it will be restoration of old photographs, scanning documents and assisting them as required in general photography. More on this project later. For our August session, we will travel to Bedwyn Wharf to survey the Bruce Trust vessels to draw up a shooting plan for still photography and prepare a storyboard for our video film. Afterwards we will go to our Club Room at the Royal British Legion Hall to review our work.

BURBAGE & DISTRICT CAMERA & VIDEO CLUB AUGUST: Our August session started much earlier with a visit to Great Bedwyn Wharf to do a shoot on a barge owned by the Bruce Trust. Our aim was, as volunteers, to produce still shots on these barges made specifically for disabled persons.

Unfortunately, we could not complete our work as it became too dark for photography during our shooting session. Technically, the project was very challenging indeed especially as the lighting had to be balanced to show the interior as well as the scene visible outside the windows. Other challenges were to

show detail that makes up the specialist design of the barge including conveying an idea of the enlarged dimensions of the vessel. There was no opportunity to shoot any video footage during this session as we still have much planning to complete. We have produced a storyboard for scenes within the wharf and some interior shots, e.g., clients use of elevators suitable for wheel-chair users but the storyboard is still lacking plans for location shooting along a length of the canal including operation of a typical lock normally undertaken by volunteer carers. For our next session, we will perform a dry run of our presentation on secrets of Marlborough and Great Bedwyn: the section on Burbage is still being worked on but should be completed in the coming two or so months.

BURBAGE & DISTRICT CAMERA & VIDEO CLUB For our next session in September, we will perform a dry run of our presentation on secrets of Marlborough and Great Bedwyn: the section on Burbage is still being worked on but should be completed in the coming two or so months.




The September session was a very packed and exciting one as we could now see the fruits of our hard work in completing our Local Area Project, an exercise in Photo-journalism. Our Members have put in a lot of time and effort in photographing and researching local sites which have interesting backgrounds but this is concealed because of time, but nevertheless of much interest to local audiences.

The Club was pleased to invite Mrs Glenda Pearce to view a preliminary presentation of our photo-journalistic project.

Our presentations included interesting sites in Marlborough, Great Bedwyn and Burbage as three separate slide shows with narration by the Member who led his respective area preparation. These three presentations are available to community audiences. Please contact Sonny Hamid for more details. Our October session will include a period of critique of our Members work and a period of general discussions on aspects of our hobby. Please do bring your work on paper prints or digital image files on a USB stick.

The project is a journey through time with pictures and a narrative identifying items of interest that most of us go past without the knowledge of the detail or history that is incorporated in buildings and other objects of interest. The project is in three parts and includes Marlborough, Great Bedwyn and Burbage. At the end of our presentation, Mrs Pearce expressed an interest in presenting our work to the audience attending the Good Companions session during 2019. Our Members look forward to presenting our work. At our next meeting in November, we are planning to develop our skills at night photography and will travel through the local area looking for buildings lit during the dark hours. Should the weather be against us, we will remain at our Club Room at the Legion Hall and exhibit/view our photography and discuss any queries members may have in connection with their photography. We welcome new members from Burbage and the surrounding villages all of whom are welcome to join us in sharing this exciting hobby or who may seek to develop their camera skills. Please contact Sonny on 01672 811 933 or Mike on 01672 810 574 for more details.

Help and support for people who care According to the last census, there are 47,608 people in Wiltshire providing care and support to a relative, child, partner or friend who would not be able to manage on their own. There are many reasons why someone may not be able to cope unaided including physical or mental disability, old age, long-term illness, special educational need, eating disorder or a problem with drugs or alcohol. It is estimated that 3 in 5 people will become a carer at some point in their lives. The problem is that most people will not identify themselves as such – people simply consider themselves as a spouse, sibling, parent, grandparent or friend doing what they would be doing anyway. Many also mistake the word ‘carer’ with

those providing paid care work in a residential home or domiciliary agency capacity. Carer Support Wiltshire is a charity with a team of support workers who can provide information and support to carers living in Wiltshire, at the other end of the telephone, or face to face, along with accessing to counselling and advice relating to your role. All of our services are free and confidential for anyone aged 18 and over and we can offer you the chance to have a break through social cafés, days out, activities, craft groups and complementary therapies. We will shortly be running a monthly carers cafés in nearby Marlborough where you can come along to chat with other carers over a hot drink or two.
