Introduction

Welcome to Your December Issue. December is a month that is dominated by one event... Christmas. Whoever you are and whatever you do it seems that the festive celebration takes over your life. Children look forward to breaking up from school and receiving presents while parents and grandparents work twice as hard to ensure they are ready for the big day. With the TV and printed media dominated by the impending event there really is no escaping it. However, while most of us can look forward to sharing Christmas with friends and family, there are some in the community for whom Christmas is not a special time and the prospect of spending it alone is one that can fill them with dread. So, when you are having fun and over indulging over the holiday period spare a thought for those who are not so lucky and for whom December 25th is just another day and take the opportunity of spreading some seasonal goodwill. I wish you all a very happy Christmas...

Andy

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m sure you are all beavering away to get ready for the big day. This month’s issue incudes plenty of Christmas themed articles designed to get you in the mood for the festive break including our special seasonal treasure hunt. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers, contributors and advertisers who have supported us over the course of 2018. We always try to produce the best possible publication each month and report on what’s happening in the local community, but it would be impossible without your help. On behalf of all the team I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. See you in 2019!

Local Business

Flourishing Births Nichola plans to make the classes fun and friendly to suit everyone’s needs and wants to hear from expectant mums about what they are looking for. She said: “I plan to hold weekly evening courses and weekend day courses in the new year but will also be able to hold one-to-one sessions if requested. “I would like people to contact me to let me know what they would like to get out of the classes. The classes will not just be for first-time mums but also for those who have already had children.

Y

oung March mum Nichola Neal has set up a new company to provide antenatal classes in Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.

The 34-year-old mother of three has formed Flourishing Births to provide other young mums with the information, skills and confidence needed to manage childbirth and care for the new-born.

“I have been lucky enough to have had a good experience with the birth of my own children and I want to help other women have a similar or even better experience. I am quite a calm person and want to ensure that other young mums don’t feel intimidated by the prospect of giving birth and looking after their new-born babies.” Nichola – who has been working as a library assistant at Whittlesey and Wisbech and is about to start a new role at Fenland District Council – will hold the first classes early in the New Year. More details are available at her website www.flourishingbirths.com and on Facebook at flourishingbirths and you can contact Nichola direct on 07749 456790 or email flourishingbirths@hotmail.com

She was inspired to set up the company following the birth of her own children, Harry (10), Libby (8) and three-year-old Teddy. She said: “I learned such a lot from my own experience of childbirth and baby care that I wanted to support other mums to help give them a good experience.” Nichola, who lives in Burnet Gardens, March, has studied hard to gain her Antenatal Educator Diploma and is now on the Register of the Federation of Antenatal Educators (FEDANT). Flourishing Births aims to provide mothers-to-be with a calm and confident birth and to inspire them to feel great about themselves whatever birth choices they may face.

Live Your Life The Healthy Way Taking ownership of your health is not easy! If you feel you are ready to be guided through easy steps to gain better health outcomes and a stronger sense of well-being, start now. It really is never too late! I’m Kim Keates, a Registered Dietitian with 16 years clinical experience in working in the NHS with adults with a variety of clinical conditions.

Thailand – “Lavish, Beautiful and Awesome!”

By Erin Lakey

Travel Consultant

Thailand is located in Southeast Asia. It’s known for tropical beaches, lavish royal palaces, ancient ruins and beautiful temples. We’re here to tell you the ins and outs of the most stunning destinations in Thailand… Bangkok Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and its biggest city by far. It’s a top tourist destination which is consistently ranked among the world’s most visited cities. If you love shopping, there are plenty of markets and shopping malls like Siam Square or Chatuchak Market. If you enjoy visiting old cultural attractions, head to the Old City and see The Grand Royal Palace. If you love your food, CNN declared Bangkok as the World’s Best Street Food City. You can visit dozens of temples in Bangkok, each with a different style of architecture, so temple-hopping in The Old City is a great way to experience them all. Phuket Phuket, a rainforested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea, featuresThailand’s most popular beaches. For those into their nightlife, Patong beach is the perfect place to go. Head to Karon Beach to

experience the local street food markets and taste the local dishes. Some of the top excursions in Phuket include James Bond island; the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary; and The Flying Hanuman Phuket Jungle Adventure, an immense adventure park with ziplines up to 400 metres long. KoSamui KoSamui is Thailand’s second largest island which lies in the Gulf of Thailand. It’s known for its golden sands, mountainous rainforest, luxurious hotels and plush spas. KoSamui is where the world comes

to relax and unwind. If you’re into diving, you can take part in a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) course - nearby Ang Thong National Marine Park has a wonderful world of underwater adventure. Tropical fish, coral reefs and safe conditions, all-year-round, make KoSamui an awesome area for first-time divers. Due to the dry and cooler climate, November to February is the best time to visit Thailand. If Thailand is a destination on your travel bucket list, get in touch with us now by calling 0800 1670232.

BECOME A FENLAND TRAVEL CHAMPION Are you passionate about sustainable travel? Could you inspire people to travel in ways which benefit their health, communities and local environment? Then Fenland District Council would like to hear from you. The council has received funding from CrossCountry’s Community Engagement Fund on behalf of the Hereward Community Rail Partnership and Fenland Transport and Access Group to deliver two free Travel Champion training sessions in the district.

HOT POTS OPENS IN MARCH The aromatic smell of coffee brewing around March will be filtering through people’s noses with the launch of a new coffee shop, run by adults with learning disabilities. Located in March Community Centre, Hot Pots Coffee Shop is the latest addition to Cambridgeshire County Council’s Supporting into Work (SITW) programme. The shop is run by a group of enthusiastic individuals with a learning disability, with the support of employment skills workers. The project will provide learners with a training placement where they will be able to learn new skills. This SITW project will work on a three-month rolling schedule, voluntary placements will be available for six learners at a time. Towards the end of the period their position will be reviewed and if they have gained all the relevant skills, they will be ready to graduate and move on into voluntary and paid work – if not their placement will be extended until they’re ready to transition to communitybased work placements. Offering a range of hot and cold beverages including cappuccinos, lattes, Americanos, tea blends, as well as hot chocolate, the new project will initially open every week on Wednesdays from 10.30am-2.30pm. Homemade cakes made by users of the Day Centre at Tennyson Lodge in March will be on offer, along with access to free wi-fi.

The training will teach people about the transport options available in their local area and give them the knowledge and skills to share this with others, encouraging them to consider their travel choices and make better use of public transport. A training session will be held on Thursday, December 13th, 9.45am-4.30pm at Fenland Hall, County Road, March. For more information on the training sessions, and to register your free place, contact Fenland District Council on 01354 622318 or email: neighbourhoodstrategy@fenland.gov.uk

PRICE FREEZE FOR GARDEN WASTE SERVICE The subscription fee for Fenland District Council’s garden waste collection service has been frozen for another year after a successful second year of the service. With more than 20,500 subscriptions this year, the service has continued to be self-funding – with the council making enough savings to be able to freeze the price again for 2019/20. The £40 annual subscription fee, which was first introduced in 2017/18, will stay the same for the third year running, ensuring it remains amongst the lowest priced authority garden waste services in the East. All new and existing customers paying for the fortnightly service by annual direct debit will also benefit from a continued discounted direct debit cost of £36. Existing annual direct debit customers DE CE M BE R 2 0 1 8


will have their subscriptions automatically renewed in February at £36, ready for the garden waste service to start in April 2019. For more information on the garden waste service and to sign up, visit www.fenland.gov.uk/ gardenwaste or visit one of Fenland’s four @ Your Service shops and community hubs.

SANTA’S STREET TOUR OF MARCH Once again March Lions Club and the Rotary Club of March are working together for the benefit of charities serving March and the surrounding area by taking Santa on a tour of the streets of March. This year they are collecting for Fen Tigers Goal Ball (football for the blind), East Anglian Air Ambulance, STARS (supporting Children suffering Bereavement) and NGNP (syringe drivers helping people cope with chronic pain).

FREE FOOD SAFETY SEMINAR HAILED A GREAT SUCCESS Plans are in the pipeline to hold regular free food safety seminars for businesses following the success of an event hosted by Fenland District Council. Representatives of more than 20 food businesses attended the free seminar, which was organised by the council’s environmental health team and held at Fenland Hall. Following a welcome from Cllr David Oliver, attendees heard from food safety and public health experts on a variety of subjects including food allergies and intolerance, food poisoning, effective cleansing and disinfection and safety of vacuum-packed foods. Feedback questionnaires showed 93 percent of respondents felt the presentations on the day were either good or very good, with many asking for regular similar events. The free food safety seminar was held in addition to the council’s usual food safety course, which is recognised as suitable training for employees in the food/catering sector. The next training course is being held on Wednesday, January 23rd , 2019, from 10am-1pm, at the council’s offices in Melbourne Avenue, March. The course costs £40 per person and can be booked online at: www.fenland.gov.uk/foodtraining

WISHING EVERYONE IN MARCH A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR… – By Steve Barclay MP

March set to open its multi-use sports pitch

I

March Armistice Day

would like to wish everyone in March and across Fenland a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. With two young children at home it is a particularly special time of year both personally and for our community, and it is also an opportunity to take stock. 2018 has seen progress in a number of areas locally, in particular for our schools where the Department for Education’s Opportunity Area programme is well underway. As one of just 12 places nationally in this flagship scheme, all local teachers now have access to free courses to secure extra professional qualifications to develop their careers. Teach First, the national programme that attracts many of the brightest, new graduates from our top universities to teaching, has started placing teachers with Fenland schools, and a majority of our primary schools are now involved in research projects enabling them to benefit from the latest teaching techniques being developed by national experts. My literacy campaign Read to Succeed entered its third year, with more than 2,000 books given to local Year 4 and 5 school children (the age many start to read independently) ahead of their summer holiday. The scheme encourages reading over the summer and participation in the library’s summer reading challenge. It means children have a new book of their own to keep and treasure to help foster the fun of reading. Well done to all the children who read six books for the summer reading challenge, and thanks to the parents, grandparents and carers who encouraged them and for the local businesses, councillors and residents who donated books. As a Health Minister, I continue to prioritise localising health care in the community to reduce the need to travel so far to hospital for services that can be delivered closer to home, like at Doddington, Ely and North Cambs. This approach of placing more services

With the ward manager on a visit to a local hospital

in community hospitals rather than centralising in big hospitals, and using technology to reduce the need for journeys to hospital, is now also a government priority. I continue to work closely with local health leaders to promote it. On transport this year progress has been made in areas like the opening of the Ely bypass which helps the whole of Fenland economically. In other areas progress has moved forward but at a slower pace than I would have liked. We now have funding confirmed for construction of King’s Dyke Crossing in Whittlesey helping journeys to Peterborough, and for the next phase of the Wisbech Rail engineering study which starts this December. Work is still ongoing on the late night train service from Cambridge back to Fenland and on the dualling of the A47. I continue to press on these issues with key stakeholders. My recent constituency wide parish and town council roundtable brought together parishes with key decision makers from across the county, and I am hosting similar roundtables with headteachers and arts groups in the next couple of months. This helps ensure we make the most effective case possible in securing new investment locally. Sport and healthy activity remains a key focus, so it was great news that Active Fenland secured extra money this year, and broadband and mobile coverage in March and across Fenland continues to see improvements but pockets of poor coverage remain which we are focusing on. Above all March and Fenland continues to show a fantastic community spirit. This was particularly the case at the moving centenary services last month to mark the end of the First World War. As we celebrate Christmas, we do so remembering those who served in the past, and with thanks to those serving our community over this festive period.

The Winds of Change

BY DANIEL BALL, PARTNER AND HEAD OF THE COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT

This is partly because of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) where a power generator sells the energy it produces directly to a buyer. PPAs are long-established in the US and are becoming more common in Europe. By finding installations with sufficient power requirements it is possible to sell all the power generated by a renewable energy project to the private sector at pre-agreed prices, giving more certainty to investors.

For years, the UK Government offered a range of subsidies for clean energy projects, providing grants for those setting up commercial renewable energy plants and offering reductions on energy bills for homeowners who installed solar panels on their houses. This helped to create many small plants supplying energy to the National Grid and also helped the Government to reach its legally binding obligation to cut carbon emissions. This all changed when the Government scrapped subsidy payments for onshore wind projects. With the withdrawal of subsidies, investment in the wind sector dropped. The private sector won’t commit to projects that don’t produce suitable returns, instead looking to alternatives for higher returns on investment. Similarly, in other renewable sectors, such as solar, as subsidies decreased investment in the sector was pared back. However recent figures suggest that this is changing.

The main reason, however, is the return on investment that the private investor can now yield. This has partly come about due to the reduction in the cost of generating power from wind and solar sources. The technology is becoming more efficient by recovering more energy when in operation and thus driving the cost down. The cost of the turbines and solar photovoltaics used in renewable projects has also come down, so the sector has gained the benefits of both reduced capital outlay and increased generation. Battery technology often goes hand in hand with renewables. Wind and solar plants frequently use vast arrays of batteries to store generated energy. Despite huge advances in battery technology in recent years, the cost of these limits the potential for returns. This sector is developing very quickly, so although it remains a ‘watch this space’ opportunity for now it is a very exciting prospect for the near future. Having worked with a number of developers and landowners on renewable energy projects, it is an exciting prospect that technological development is now providing opportunities for people to set up profitable renewable energy sites without relying on subsidies.

Property

Brexit And The Housing Market - by Mike Ellis

For the last two years Brexit has probably been the most commonly used word in the English language and by now most people are fed up with it. Certainly, most of us have no idea exactly how Brexit is going to impact us on a daily basis. We are asked almost every day how property prices will be affected, and the answer is, “We’ll have to wait and see.” For those selling and buying at the same time, Brexit will have no effect whatsoever. If you are selling and going in to rented accommodation, the gamble is that prices may come down a little in which case, when you come to buy again, you may make a little money, but there is certainly no guarantee of that. The market in this area over the last year has risen by four percent, according to the recent house price index, so that gamble about going into rented accommodation is a close call. For many people Brexit isn’t even a

consideration. If you have a job relocation, moving closer to family or moving for financial reasons, your property is worth what you can achieve for it at the time you come to sell.  There have been many media scare stories about prices crashing, but we’ve heard that before and they didn’t materialise and if the news stories over the last few days are anything to go by, a deal on Brexit is 95% there so why should prices be affected so dramatically? Our advice then would be to carry on as normal, trust your own decision making and if you are looking to move, move! As we go into the New Year information about Brexit will become clearer as the Government plans are published, whatever happens there will be opportunities and life will carry on!  We would like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. If you would like a valuation on what your property is worth currently, please call us on 01354 701000 & 694900 for straight forward and impartial advice.

Why not try developing your skills and wellbeing through helping or connecting with others? Care Network is a local charity that puts people at the heart of everything it does. Volunteers offer practical support and information to help people stay healthy, independent and in touch with their communities.

Cook Family

Vintage Tea Room

Bridget runs the business with the help of two cooks and two other staff with Mick helping out at weekends and when he is not working as a processes and systems specialist with Knowles Transport. Mick said: “It has been something that we had been thinking about doing for a long time but had never got around to it. We have been extremely pleased with how it has gone so far. We have attracted a lot of interest by word of mouth and have had some fantastic online reviews.”

A

Bridget, who describes herself as a food lover, says the business specialises in good, traditional food, including a range of specialist cakes, and also offers more than forty loose-leaf teas and a range of vintage sweets.

March couple have brought a taste of the past back to the town by opening a traditional vintage tea room.

Mick and Bridget Cook have been overwhelmed by the positive response they have received from customers since opening Cook Family Vintage Tea Room in Robingoodfellows Lane, March. The business – which offers breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and Sunday roasts – has already attracted loyal customers of all ages since first opening in June this year with the popularity of their traditional food and decor being highlighted with comments on their Facebook page. “Wow, wow, wow. This is a lovely little gem of a place” “Could not recommend Cook’s family vintage tea room enough! You are really spoilt for choice here with the food and drinks!” “Visited the tea room today. What a beautiful place. The staff were attentive friendly and made you feel very welcome” “Can't recommend enough! The food and tea was beautiful, such a range to choose from. Decorated wonderfully. Happy, kind staff and owners” 34

She said: “We offer traditional food in a vintage setting. We are bringing nostalgia back. People have commented that the premises look nothing from the outside but resemble their nan's house inside. I often hear our customers talk about how it brings back many happy memories of visiting their nans' homes when they were younger. “Everything has been incredibly well received, particularly our traditional specials like bacon and onion roll, and homemade cakes and afternoon teas which are even really popular with youngsters.” Cook Family Vintage Tea Room, which can be booked for functions, also offers an outside catering service. Mick says that the premises – situated in the old Red Cross building – can currently seat 27 people but there are plans to increase this as well as developing the outside area to cater for additional customers.

Christmas Gifts - Advice Before You Purchase As you read this I’m sure you are or have been, thinking about what Christmas presents you have yet to buy. Amongst that list will be some ‘technology’, e.g. laptop, gaming tower, phone etc. An important part of your decision making should also include: Where to buy it? Is it fit for purpose? What guarantee/warranty will I receive? If something does go wrong, what service/support will I receive? Where to buy? Online v High Street – Yes it is more convenient to buy online rather than trek around the shops; however, if everybody were to buy that way, we would end up without hardly any retailers in the High Street and currently we are seeing massive store closures which will only get worse if current trends continue. Hence, my main comment here is just think about making a conscious effort to either shop locally or in the major shopping centres. Obviously, a major benefit of the High Street is the ease with which you can return your goods, e.g. it is usually very easy to buy online but usually a little more difficult to return items. Furthermore, when buying from a High Street retailer, it is highly unlikely you will receive fake goods, unfortunately, an all too common occurrence with some online sites. Is it ‘fit for purpose? Ask yourself ‘why am I buying this’? If a phone, then should it be Android or Apple? If you don’t know the difference then Google it and find out. Oliver and I are both Apple fans, despite the higher cost of the phone and higher repair costs; whilst Deborah will only have Samsung Android. If buying a laptop, what are you going to use it for? Most people need laptops with 120Gb SSD/500Gb HDD – yet laptops are being offered with 1Tb/2Tb HDD’s as the norm (due to the cost of falling prices for HDD’s). So if you can get a cheaper laptop with a smaller HDD, go for that – unless it is your intention to download and save dozens of films at 4Gb each. I strongly recommend not buying a laptop with a 28/32Gb SSD. Yes, they are fast, however, they

are notoriously difficult when it comes to software upgrades. Basically, every six months Microsoft brings out the latest version of Windows (currently V1803) and because of the lack of space on the SSD without help from shops like mine they are virtually untradeable. What guarantee/warranty will I receive? You really want the longest you can get. Whilst the norm is usually one year, some retailers will offer extended periods. For instance, John Lewis always provides a minimum of two years on iPads. In my experience these devices either ‘work forever’ or else, they malfunction between 13-15 months. Hence a two-year warranty is worth it – especially when free. If you really want to pay for an extended warranty, don’t just sign up at the point of purchase. Google insurance for your item and you will probably find it much, much cheaper elsewhere. What service/support will I receive? In the sad event of something going wrong, a manufacturer’s warranty is usually best. However, you will usually find that items bought from, say, Argos, PC World and Curry’s will have the warranty support provided from that retailer. That’s fine if they just swap out your item (providing you have a backup of your important documents and pictures), but I have heard some horror stories of laptops being taken away for weeks before being returned. So ask. New Year Sales at AA Whittlesey Computers In the new year, we will be offering i5 Processor Towers for ‘free’ – you just pay for the software build and type of hard drive you want, and each machine will be ‘built’ to your specification. Plus any gaming machines not sold before Christmas will be sold at cost. In the meantime, sending you our best wishes for Christmas and The New Year. Deborah, Len and Oliver

Village Life

Memories of Christmas – by Jayne Whytock

S

o, it’s that time of year again and off we trot to join the throngs of people looking for those must-have presents. Writing lists as long as your arm for the supermarket food shop and worrying how we are going to pay for it all.

Now I’m not that old (tell my body that!) but when I was a child, Christmas was very different. We wrote lists to Santa because we really believed that’s where they were going, we didn’t use TV adverts or catalogues to get ideas, we asked for things we really wanted. It might not be politically correct nowadays but girls in general wanted dolls, prams, and pretty things and boys wanted Action Man, cars, and footballs. Most children, whether boy or girl, wanted a bike or a scooter and dressing up clothes so they could be ballerinas, nurses, Red Indians or soldiers. And everyone always wanted at least one annual. Christmas Eve, you were ready for bed in record time because we all knew that Santa wouldn’t visit if you were awake. One year I actually heard the sleigh bells on our roof and pretended so hard to be asleep. It must have worked because the presents were round the tree in the morning. Waking up at 5am isn’t every parent’s idea of fun but us children were at their bedside tugging on the blankets (no duvets then) to get them up and 40

downstairs to see what the man in the big red coat had left. I can remember like it was yesterday opening the living room door and gasping in wonder at the array of presents around the tree and wondering how they got down the chimney. By 9am if you looked out of your window you could guarantee you would see children out on new bikes being guided by Dad wrapped up warm and wishing they were sat in front of the fire instead of being out in the cold. Mum would be in the kitchen cooking that wonderful dinner. The turkey would have been slowly cooking overnight and the vegetables would have been prepared well in advance. Nothing frozen or in packets, all fresh and homemade. The TV would go on in time for the Queen’s Speech at 3pm and then the rest of the day was spent playing board games, dressing up and just having the most fantastic time. Watching Dad trying to build a Lego castle and Mum busy changing outfits on the beautiful doll with long auburn hair. Now as a grandparent I so love watching the grandchildren's Christmas morning but just a tiny part of me thinks back to those days when I was a child and how different things were. Progress is good, but memories are better.

March Stonemason’s Tribute to Great-Grandfather an appeal in 2014 and was paid for entirely by public subscription. Richard provided the memorial, charging only for materials and waived his fee to cut, install and engrave the memorial. He said he wanted to make his contribution in honour of the memory of his great-grandfather. The memorial played a special part when Boston paid homage to all casualties of wars at the annual Remembrance Day service in Memorial Gardens on Sunday, November 11th.

A March stonemason has paid a unique tribute to his great-grandfather, who served throughout the First World War with the 8th Lincolnshire Regiment. Sgt George Robert Richer, of Holbeach, received the Military Medal and Distinguished Conduct Medal, both with bar.

The First World War Memorial, just behind the main war memorial in Memorial Gardens, has been freshly engraved to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War. One face was engraved when it was erected four years ago to mark the centenary of the beginning of the First World War, with the reverse face left deliberately blank until now.

His great-grandson, Richard King, who has a shop in City Road, March, has engraved a special First World War Centenary Memorial in his honour.

The polished grey granite obelisk has been engraved, at the suggestion of the Boston branch of the Royal British Legion, with the famous words from John McCrae’s poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.

The memorial in Boston’s Memorial Gardens was erected after Boston Borough Council launched

Local History

Bringing Fame to March

– by Trevor Bevis

F

ame visited March in two distinctly different ways. The town’s huge railway marshalling yards had their beginnings in the nineteenth century and were of immense importance in the Second World War.

After the destruction of Germany’s famous railway yards at Hamm, March was a byword in European railway history and continues its strong railway connection in its existing set-up storing ballast for rail development over a wide area and transporting it. In the old days about eighty miles of rail existed at Whitemoor, March. At the southern end of town, the church of Saint Wendreda honours the town’s very own saint, a godly woman who lived and died at March in the seventh century. Uniquely dedicated to her, the church is a memorial building dating to the thirteenth century. It has an exceptionally fine, double hammer beam roof with no fewer than 118 carved angel figures looking down on congregations. It was constructed by two brothers and their highly skilled wood carvers at Bacton, Suffolk in about 1526-28. The Rollesbury brothers were justly famous for making beautiful screens and roofs for churches and are represented by about six church buildings in East Anglia. Experts claim the roof at March as being the finest of its kind. It forms a fitting memorial to the March saint thought to be the daughter of King Anna of Exning, Suffolk. Wealthy citizens of March undoubtedly contributed to the cost of the roof, carvings of Sir Anthony Hansart and his second wife, Lady Alice, occupying decorated niches

Barges Stranded in River Nene

– By Peter Wright (on behalf of March & District Museum)

The Cambs Times photograph shows the steam tug on the left with the barges stranded on the bend

E

ight or nine barges (the number varied depending on which article is studied) belonging to Mr A V Jackson, of 81 North Street, Stanground, left Prior Sluice near Outwell at 10.30am on Sunday, December 29th 1935. They were bound for Flood's Ferry to pick up sugar beet belonging to Sir Ernest Shepperson MP for shipment to Wissington sugar processing factory. They were drawn by a steam tug and attended by four men. Everything was fine until they passed under the Creek railway bridge at March when difficulties were then encountered due to low water. In a short distance the tug finally stranded just after passing Nene House at noon on Monday. Despite repeated attempts further progress was impossible. Low water in the river was rather ironic in view of considerable amounts of rain daily since the thaw set in on Christmas Eve and repeated reports of serious flooding. The pumps at St. Germans had been working constantly and the river levels had not been allowed to rise.

52

D I S C O V E R I N G

March

It was not until the following Saturday that the barges were able to get under way again. However, they had to return without the anticipated cargo – a lost contract amounting to about £70. Mr Jackson spoke to the Cambs Times by telephone. He declared that navigation on the River Nene and every other Fen river contained 'barriers'; pieces of river left undredged and lowered bridges, added to the difficulties of navigation. It had been the practice in the past to keep enough water to permit navigation and for bridges to be of navigable height. He said he had 17001800 tons of manure to go through March but did not know whether to take the contract as he could get no definite assurance as to how much water would be in the rivers.

Consumer Advice

Stay Merry, not Miserable in the Run-Up to Christmas ‘TIS the season to be jolly – but as we prepare for the season of goodwill, not everyone shares the Christmas spirit. With many of us starting the Christmas shopping earlier, there is a fair chance that many of our shop purchases and online orders are beginning to pile up. So, with gifts galore adding to the decorations, tree, food and drink, December is a time when many of us let our guard down, amongst the excitement leading up to the big day. For opportunist thieves, visible presents under the tree, open car boots full of shopping while loads are being taken into the house, and even the possibility of an unlocked garage are rich pickings which can turn your Christmas from being ‘Merry’ into ‘Miserable’! Equally, flaws in home security while out and about visiting friends and family are a beacon to thieves – so always remember to check your alarm and never leave doors, windows or garages unlocked. Some tips for a safe and happy festive season: • Don’t leave presents in full view – either in the home or on the back seat of the car.

• Keep a light on indoors and outdoors if you are out visiting friends or family. • It may be an idea to fit some motion detector security lighting – it won’t just be carol singers who come calling. • Keep your personal data safe – and securely dispose of receipts. • If you are expecting parcels or deliveries whilst you are away from home, try and arrange for them to be delivered to an alternative address instead of them being hidden by the bins! • If buying bikes and / or electronic equipment for Christmas – mark them with your postcode • If using outdoor festive lighting, ensure cables aren’t passed through windows, leaving enough of a gap for burglars to make use of.

• Shorter days mean a longer time for thieves to be in operation – always lock your car and front door when entering your home.

• Away over Christmas? – plan ahead. If you’re going away at Christmas, be sure to cancel any newspaper or milk subscriptions. Arrange for a neighbour to park on the driveway to help create the impression someone is home. Do not to leave descriptive telephone answering machine messages like “we’re away skiing for the Christmas holidays”, or post your plans on social media. For any home security improvements, we have locksmiths, alarm and CCTV installers, electricians and many other traders who can help. Visit www.safelocaltrades.com or call free on 0800 014 1832.

This Month at the Movies with The Light Cinema Wisbech

The Nutcracker

White Christmas

Aquaman

Mary Poppins Returns

Andre Rieu

Check out what the big screen has to offer as the holiday season unwraps. The ever-popular Nutcracker is brought to us from the Royal Opera House on December 3rd and 9th. The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet, and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Community matters to us, so come along to our ‘dementia-friendly’, Bing Crosby classic, White Christmas, on December 10th. ‘Dementia-friendly’ screenings are made that much more special by providing you with free refreshments, supplied to us by Iceland Foods, and live interval entertainment with Sally Rose and Paul Hayward of Back Two. Tickets are £5, and all carers go in for free, with no need for a CEA card. DC Comics’ lord of the seas is getting his own solo feature in Aquaman on December 14th. Jason Momoa reprises his role from 2016’s Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League. The film’s supporting cast includes Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren and Nicole Kidman, as we follow Aquaman being forced to reconcile his loyalties to the surface world with his role in the undersea Kingdom of Atlantis, which has become increasingly hostile to the humans polluting the oceans. The supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Mary Poppins Returns comes to our screens on December 21st. The official sequel to 1964’s Mary Poppins stars Emily Blunt as everybody’s favourite magical nanny. The film is set in 1930s’ depression-era London. Drawn from a wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ additional seven books, it’s sure to be a toe-tapping, family 58
