Norley News 10 things to do in Norley #1

Join an exercise class or activity at the Village hall Get fit for the summer and tone up your core muscles. Whatever age or ability there’s usually a sporting activity at the village hall to suit you. From the slow and controlled Pilates or Pure Stretch lessons to full on Sumba. The Ladies badminton and Norley Badminton Club are always looking for extra players to join them. See back page ‘What’s on in Norley?’ for details. 

#3

Enter the Garden Show We normally give details of the show and its various classes you can enter, in NN in the summer. But you might want to start thinking now about what you plan to enter. Are you proud of your flowers, vegetables, fruit etc? You can also enter classes for crafts, baked goods and more. You can enter your photographs too. This year the subjects for the competition were; Something in the garden, Letters, Reflections, Food Landscapes These subjects can be entered at two levels - either as a “happy snapper” or as a more serious, advanced photographer.

February 2018 It’s a new year! Or quite new, anyway. A good time to ponder some of the great things about living in this brilliant village, and how you can get the most out of living here. Here’s your chance to make sure you don’t miss out. Join a Committee/Community Group & help run your village Norley owes a massive debt to its residents who do so much fantastic work in groups such as the Norley Wildlife Group (see their monthly article in this magazine or details), guardians of our wild heritage. Your Parish Council, Village Hall, Play Area and many other groups also often need help. As well as giving something back to your village, it’s a great way to meet your neighbours and friends and to share common interests. Give it a try this year. As always, Norley News can put you in touch.

#2

Catch some live music in your neighbourhood

Norley Village Hall has regular concerts – check out Norley News and the notice Boards and Facebook for details. We also have a promoter in Norley who puts on shows here and in neighbouring villages – again watch out for details, or you can go on their mailing list. Norley News can arrange this for you – get in touch at jon007.wild@hotmail.co.uk. Future shows include 40’s music from 52 Skidoo in April, a folk/singer- songwriter double bill to be announced, and we have other performances too, including acts from the Rural Touring Arts programme. We have a play by local playwright Lyn Pegler coming up soon too. We need your support to keep these shows going – they are great value. Please do come along as often as you can.

The Garden Show has become one of the main events in the village each summer. Make this year the one in which you become part of it! The Show is organised by Norley Horticultural Society, and once again NN can put you in touch. Get your bike sorted out for summer Use your local shop

#5

Norley is increasingly lucky to have its own shop – adding to the value of our houses, and giving us great value and convenience. Not least, saving many four or five mile drives to buy essentials. Despite the advantages, the village is still full of Ocado vans. Is this time to rethink this? Which is more important to you – the life of your village or the couple of quid you might (or might not) save with Ocado? To us the answer is obvious. Hopefully you will agree and do even more support your shop this year.

Getting your bike sorted out, and cycling the lanes - It’s nearly springtime, so that means leaving hibernation and getting some fresh air. There are simply miles of gently undulating terrain and quiet roads on our doorsteps. How about cycling the Delamere Loop, the Weaver Valley Way, Delamere Forest trails; around the Oak mere Way or the White gate Way? If you need help to get your dusty, trusty steed out of the shed and into Good working order see the RXM Cycles advert inside.

Join the Women’s Institute

#7

Norley WI is a large, friendly and lively group with more than 60 members from a wide range of ages and backgrounds, from Norley and the surrounding area. There are monthly talks on the widest range of subjects as well as meetings, trips, a gin club, a cycling club, a book club, a craft club and more. Why not come along and make new friends this year? A warm welcome awaits all who attend meetings, on the second Thursday of the month at the Village Hall. No need to book, just turn up. This year there is a special focus on environmental issues, and the chance to get involved in local community events etc. as part of the club. Do the Norley Village Memorial Walk

#8

This brilliant walk takes you around the village in a manageable and easy walk that takes in all of the memorials set up to Norley residents who died during the Great War. It’s a lovely way to see the village and all it has to offer, while appreciating the lovely wildflower show that the Norley Wildlife Group has established, at the various sites. We are lucky to have this great facility – use it this year! Maps available from the village shop.

#9 Get walking! We live in fantastic place for walking, with lovely lanes and footpaths all around, and quick and easy access to beautiful countryside. There are local walking groups, or you can just get your boots on and go. Make this the year that you find out what is down those lanes and paths you haven’t yet explored! Look out for your neighbours! One of the best things about living in a place like Norley is that we can get to know other people who live here. There is nothing like starting at home – do any of your neighbours need your help? They might be ill, or getting on, or just be on their own. Many of us keep an eye on those we live near – the New Year is a great opportunity to make sure you know your neighbours.

Flower Power When that Christmas ‘To Do’ list seems never ending, it’s good to take time out for some creative ‘me time’. The smell of pine and favourite scents for this time of year radiate comfort and warmth, from musky evergreens and warm cedarwood to the festive spice of cinnamon. For our December meeting we invited local florist, Jenny Penny, to provide a workshop for creating a truly wonderful festive flower display to wow our senses and impress visitors we welcome into our homes at this time of year. Our tutor, Jenny, who is a local florist based in Frodsham, guided members through the basic techniques of creating a festive display with her patient step-by-step guide. So with a lot of encouragement and a bit of intuition, even those amongst us who had never done it before created splendid balanced displays that we were proud to call our own.

Show the love....

On Saturday February 10th outside The Stores, Norley WI members will be showing the love for everything we could lose to climate change. We will be making and wearing green hearts and baking green heart biscuits. Why green hearts? We are using green hearts to start the conversation about the plants and wildlife we love. What do you love?

Norley Village Great British Spring Clean Together we can make a real difference again. Join us to help clean up litter in our village at Norley Village Hall on Saturday March 2nd 10:00am – 2:00pm. Tempted? How about delicious homemade refreshments – cakes, biscuits and coffee/tea which will be provided by our lovely WI helpers throughout the day. Grabbers, bags and high visibility jackets will be provided. See you there!

Climate change is already impacting on things we all cherish in our gardens, local farms and woodlands. The WI has played a key role in keeping climate change high on the political agenda. It’s not just the WI who are highlighting this important issue, other charities are getting involved too. . Please visit showthelove.org.uk for more information.

41 Club

Delamere Forest 41 Club traditionally battles Winsford 41 Club in January for the coveted “Percy Pig” trophy. This year’s contest was to take place at the Tigers Head in early January. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, on the night Winsford were not able to field a team, so we decided, after a nourishing buffet, to battle each other! Jon Wild produced the quiz in a novel format this year, revealing the “dodgy salesmen” amongst us, as they used Monopoly money to buy their way to success! Success this year meaning chocolate and a certificate! But a fun night nonetheless. Members stood for a minutes’ silence in respect of Mike Buckley, one of our founder members, who sadly died on 9th January. He will be sadly missed by all our members and friends. Thank you to all who contributed to the Norley Float Collection. Norley’s contribution to the £1506 raised in total for the Joshua Tree and St Luke’s Hospice was £248. Next Meeting – Wednesday 7th February – a talk on the subject of “Water Leaks” – 7:30pm @ The Hazel Pear, Acton Bridge. Anyone wishing to attend please contact Jon Wild on jon007.wild@hotmail.co.uk.

Norley CE Primary School Celebrating Achievement Again Norley is one of the top five Northwich Schools Once again here at Norley CE Primary School we are celebrating our results from the national tests in 2017. We are always extremely proud of our children and how they mature into such lovely young people. Frequently, we have pupils coming back to visit us to share their own successes. Two past pupils that we know of are studying medicine and one is currently studying at Cambridge University. Another past pupil has recently qualified as a teacher and we have a pupil volunteering with us to gain experience before she trains to be a teacher. We are overwhelmed by the number of our pupils who go on to university. More importantly, we are delighted that past pupils want to come back to share their journey with us. The Northwich Guardian has recognised that we are one of the top 5 schools in Northwich, based on the percentage of pupils achieving age-related expectations by the time they are 11 years old. 80% of our pupils achieved expectations in all three subjects combined (reading, writing and maths) in 2017, compared with the national average of 61%. For the past 3 years 100% of our pupils have met age-related expectations in reading and this puts us in the top 5% in the country! Read more in the link below.

Although we are proud of these results, we don’t lose sight of the fact that there is more to school than tests. Recently, we have reviewed our curriculum to make sure we are offering exciting, broad and balanced experiences to our children. Children learn in a variety of ways and we like to take them out of the classroom on visits or simply to use our beautiful grounds. In addition to our curriculum we are proud to offer lots of experiences and opportunities to our children. The girls’ football team has been successful and they are through to the next round of tournaments . Even though we are a small school, it doesn’t put us off entering teams into as many sports competitions as we can. The school choir have been busy singing with the Highfield Male Voice Choir and at the opening of the Lady Heyes Christmas market. We also hosted the first Cheshire West and Chester Poetry Festival, which was a great success and will hopefully become an annual event. These are just some highlights. Please follow us on Twitter @NorleyCofE or visit our website to find out what we are up to: www.norleyce.cheshire.sch.uk.

The future of Humanity indeed all life now depends upon us (Sir David Attenborough)

Phil Gifford- Chair of Norley Wildlife Group (NWG) 01928 78721 Email: ansellpgifford@gmail.com I expect, like you, watching Blue Planet II was both a stunning revelation of the sheer wonder of life and a sad confirmation of the sheer stupidity, greed and fecklessness of humanity. All of us bear some responsibility too; can any of us who has ever used a cotton bud categorically deny that it wasn’t the very one that the little seahorse is clinging to?

and have taken measures to reduce the amount of plastic bags and packaging they use. And we ourselves can simply stop using plastic unnecessarily. Never before have we been so aware of what we are doing to our planet – and never before have we had such power to do something about it. Surely we have a responsibility to care for the planet on which we live? The future of humanity, and indeed of all life on Earth, now depends on us doing so. “ For the full account go to http://www.radiotimes.com/ news/tv/2017-12-11/blue-planet-2-plastic-waste-finalepisode/

In the final programme of Blue Planet II, Sir David graphically spelled out the awful horror that we have visited upon the vast, once pristine Oceans, “Plastic is now found everywhere in the ocean, from its surface to its greatest depths. There are fragments of nets so big they entangle the heads of fish, birds and turtles, and slowly strangle them. Other pieces of plastic are so small that they are mistaken for food and eaten, accumulating in fishes’ stomachs, leaving them undernourished.

wildnorley.org

And while in the sea, this debris may combine with other toxic chemicals that we have dumped in the ocean adding, some suspect, to the chemical contamination that we’re already seeing in a variety of sea creatures. Every year, we dump around eight million tonnes of plastic into the sea. When ingenious chemists invented plastics over a century ago, the manufacturers proudly announced that this new material was, most wonderfully and valuable, indestructible. It would never wear out. No one at the time, apparently, asked the question of what happened to this extraordinary new kind of marvelous material after we have finished with it. Now we know. It kills. Yet all is not yet lost. We can, right now, reduce the amount of plastic that we use in our everyday lives. Already many companies have realised the danger

All very well some might say, but surely the NWG ought to concentrate on helping wildlife in Norley not the planet. My rejoinder is that Norley is not some isolated pristine Arcadian haven, far from it and everything that we do, no matter how small, will have a benefit both locally and more widely. Bearing in mind the astounding amount of litter, much of it plastic, discarded in the Village by thoughtless uncaring nincompoops, what hope for the planet if we can’t keep Norley tidy? MEMORIAL GARDEN A case in point is this “Waste” which since last year has become NWG’s responsibility; amongst all the wildflowers we have collected newsprint, bottles, bags, Norley News | February 2018 | norleynews@mail.com


cans, coffee cups, crisp/biscuit packets, sweet /pie wrappings, sandwich containers, an inner tyre and a plastic bag of dog poo. A full report on the Garden has been produced for the Parish Council but as yet not discussed (see our website for this). Apparently, there are still residents who yearn for a nice manicured lawn. I have to say that if the myriad bees and butterflies that benefitted from the profusion of wildflowers and the pollinated wildflowers themselves had the power of speech they would all say “NO! - mow your own lawns into green deserts and leave us be”. If you agree then please make your views known to the council. BREECH MOSS The Moss is another example of where a concerted effort by all of us can help to restore a haven for wildlife. Not much in the grand scale of things, but it will be used by animals along the newly created wildlife corridors and increasing the amount of sphagnum moss will act both as a sponge for water and carbon dioxide.

where we wish her all the very best. As a token of NWG’s appreciation, she was given a copy of “Mires and peatlands in Europe: Status, distribution and conservation”. Something for the long winter nights! CWT, being mindful of the need to ensure all the hard work and effort is not wasted, has appointed Kevin Feeney in a new role: Living Landscapes Officer. This involves the management of CWT’s reserves in central Cheshire around Northwich and Delamere and also looking at the wider landscape e.g. working on projects like Lost Mosses and white-faced darter at Delamere. As some of these projects are coming to a finish, he will be looking for any new opportunities. We will give him a very warm welcome when he comes to discuss these at our next NWG meeting. NOT JUST WORDS HAVE BEEN LOST I have started reading the human story of the county’s wildlife in the fascinating “The Boom of the Bitterbump”. Roger Stephens, the author, has gathered memories, knowledge and superstitions of Cheshire people past and present –gamekeepers and poachers, farmers and labourers, wildfowlers and fishermen.

The meeting of neighbouring residents and other interested parties on 28th November was well attended; the tenor of the meeting at the beginning was a bit fraught as some assumed restoration equalled floods, when actually the reverse is true (meeting notes are on our website). Given the concern expressed by some over the risk of flooding and literally the vital future of the Moss, the most urgent action needed is a hydrological assessment to establish the most effective way to restore the moss while ensuring flood concerns are minimised. NWG consider that CWAC, together with United Utilities and possibly the PC, should fund this; something in excess of a thousand pounds or so would seem likely. Katie Piercy took attendees onto Flaxmere Moss to show them how its restoration has not in any way put neighbouring homes at risk. All of Norley can be proud that there is now such a magical place in our midst, NWG had another go at clearing the rhododendron at Breech Moss on 27th January. Good Luck Katie and Welcome Kevin! The presentation on the work and outcomes of the Lost Mosses project’s last four years on Saturday 20th January 2018 was an opportunity to say thank you to the redoubtable Katie Piercy, CWT’s Lost Mosses officer. Her hard work, good humour and enthusiasm motivated everyone involved to make this a tremendously successful project. She is to move on to a challenging new job in Shropshire Wildlife Trust Norley News | February 2018 | norleynews@mail.com

Bitterbumps (bitterns) were once common in Cheshire, as were Daker hens (corncrakes) and Gleads (Red Kites), but persecution, obsessive collection by “naturalists” and loss of habitat mean these birds are as lost in the county as the archaisms themselves. Though a Glead was seen gliding (same root) over School Lane only last year! IN BRIEF Don’t forget to look for the snowdrops along the Walk and visit our website for dates of our workdays and our meetings- all are most welcome. Remember see our website for updates and revisions.
