t’s a common problem in our new world of multimedia messages. We text, email, WhatsApp. We save documents and send them on. But, more often than not, I forget what goes where and send the wrong stuff to the wrong person. Only the other week, I made a couple of gaffes. Actually, though, I had a jolly nice picnic with the bloke from the garage and Aunty Flo did a decent job mending the exhaust on my car. It won’t always work out so neatly, however. I have friends who have accidentally dumped their parents by text and simultaneously asked their ex to let them move back in or do their laundry. So be very careful which message you send, and to whom. Anyhow, Mrs Snuggles, I can’t wait to see you this evening. Please have my slippers ready. I thought that we might open that packet of ginger nuts, seeing as it’s the weekend. Now I’d better get on and write my Editor’s Letter for Inside Magazine. With all my love, Mr Snuggles…… Welcome to the July/August edition of Inside Magazine, the local magazine for Chingford and Highams Park. Inside this issue I’ve written a fascinating piece about the history of umbrellas…

WEATHER FORECASTS or Bulls, the Beagle and Bill’s mother STORY: DAVID YOUNG

I

was walking in the Lake District through mud, mist, cloud, rain and drizzle, when I came upon a grizzled local who was leaning on a gatepost. “Turned out grand,” he said. I was socially distanced, although this was 1998 – I just didn’t like the look of him. But what is it that makes people opine so on our climate?

To begin, we have to go back to ancient times, about Zero AD (or, if you’re glass-half-empty Zero BCE). To predict tomorrow’s weather, the state-ofthe-art technique was to see if the sky was red at sunset. 1,000 years later, an agriculturist in modern-day Iraq claimed to be able to predict rain by studying the stars and planets, though quite how he interpreted these phenomena is not clear. Somewhere between 1000 and 1800AD the popular phrase emerged, “It’s black over Bill’s

ROBERT FITZROY 8

mother.” This gem of folklore implies some sort of a stab at predicting rain. Other useful sources of information included the behaviour of a frog in a jar and the general demeanour of the local bull. But science was now becoming fashionable so something more authoritative was needed. Furthermore, as warfare became more technological, something cleverer than the local bull was necessary - a military strategy could stand or fall on heat or flood or snow. So some degree of accuracy was required beyond looking over at Bill’s mother’s or, indeed, Bill’s bull, if he had one. Or that poor frog in the jar. The invention of the telegraph allowed for broader observations, extending to the abodes of many other parents, not just Bill’s mother, but Fred’s dad and Aunty Flo’s as well. In the 19th century, it became possible to compile weather reports from diverse locations, to build a picture of movements of weather patterns. The first big name in this new science was Admiral Robert FitzRoy. Back in the 1830s, he had been the captain on board HMS Beagle as it took Charles Darwin on his voyage of discovery. His experiences at sea prompted him to set up an office that would predict wind changes in order to judge sailing times accurately, and to avoid loss of

life at sea. This UMBRELLAS OUT FOR DERBY DAY bureau would eventually become the Met Office that we all know and… well… love to moan about. An emerging theory was that, where hot and cold air met, there would be storms. The pervasive telegraph system allowed wind charts to be compiled based on the strength and direction of the currents. It might FitzRoy killed himself, one morning in 1865, tired even be possible, at a stretch, to predict the of the criticism and suffering from depression. weather for the following day.

Thus was all. born that dilemma – whether to trust an attempt at explanation, or just to carry on crossing one’s fingers. Over 7,000 ships were lost at sea between 1855 and 1860. Alarmed by this huge loss of life, FitzRoy believed that, if a storm could be accurately predicted, then boats and lives could be saved. He was able to use the telegraph system to compile observations from ports and to warn of impending storms. The information gleaned could give more information than just the likelihood of storm. Would it be hot or cold, wet or dry? In his despatches, he gave his predictions. He would also give details of the weather to come over the next couple of days, and shared these with newspapers, urging them to use the term ‘forecast’ rather than ‘prediction’. Mostly, his forecasts were accurate, and he became a popular figure. The weather forecast had arrived. Hot on its tail, however, came the backlash of derision and scorn and disbelief. Scientists challenged his methods. Politicians questioned the monetary value gained from the investment. Fishermen, for example, enjoyed the useful information provided but reacted with anger when a day was needlessly lost due to a wrong forecast. Newspapers delighted in mocking FitzRoy.

ST. JAMES IS BACK! A

fter all those months of lockdown and restrictions, St.James URC at the top of Palmerston Road, Buckhurst Hill is now reopen for worship.

“We were all very excited to be reopening for live worship, especially on Pentecost Sunday”, said Margaret Minoletti, one of the Elders at the Church. “Whilst we worshipped together on Zoom throughout the pandemic it was be good to see each other again and be open to anyone from the area who wanted to join us. We know that this pandemic has been a very painful time and the lack of social contact has made the pain much harder for many people. So, come as you are, however you feel, maybe sad or in need of support. For some people, the period of lockdown was also an opportunity to slow down and reflect, maybe even giving you a chance to reset your priorities. So if you feel like trying church again or coming along for the very first time you will find a warm welcome at St. James. Come just as you are.” The Church Manager, Gerald Lee (pictured right, with his wife Mariana) led the opening service. “The church was born at Pentecost over 2,000 years ago. It seemed appropriate to be born again this Pentecost”, said Gerald. If you would like to come along to a service, they start at 10.30am. The building has been following all the COVID safety regulations and is well ventilated so if you have never visited St. James URC before you will be assured of a warm and safe welcome.

HOLIDAY HOMES TRUST O

nce upon a time, well in the late 1960s, Charles Porter, a former Rover Scout decided to redesign and improve his front garden. In pride of place, he installed a wishing well, which turned out to be magical, because as people passed by, they threw coins into it. Within a year, Charles had collected the princely sum of £400, which was a lot of money in those days. Charles had two great-nieces with disabilities, and he knew how difficult it was for them to go on holidays. An idea came to him, he would use the money collected to buy a specially adapted caravan so his great-nieces could have the chance to have a proper holiday. Charles then thought there must be lots of families who find it difficult to have a proper break, so he decided that he would make the caravan affordable and available to families that were disadvantaged and/or living with disabilities. It was from this small and frankly unusual beginning that The Holiday Homes Trust developed and grew into a well-established charity that recently celebrated its 50-year anniversary. Its aim is to help people enjoy a family holiday, away from the stresses and strains of everyday routines and create happy cherished memories. The Holiday Homes Trust is based at The Scouts Headquarters, Gilwell Park, Chingford. It owns and manages ten adapted holiday homes - spacious static caravans, situated in some of the most sought-after UK holiday destinations. The caravans sleep six people comfortably and are self-contained with a well-equipped kitchen, and a wetroom bathroom. There are assisted living equipment such as pulley in the main bedrooms and lowered units in the kitchens. The internal doors and connecting corridors are wide enough to manoeuvre a wheelchair and many have decking area so have outdoor relaxation space. As the

WISHING WELL FROM 50TH ANNIVERSARY caravans are sited on holiday parks, the park passes are included, so Holiday Homes Trust’s guests can access all the park activities and facilities. This ensures holidays are not only funfilled and flexible but also easier to manage on a budget. One little known feature is that The Trust offers anyone associated with the Scouts movement an instant 5% discount off the booking fees. As a charity, Holiday Homes Trust raises funds in two distinct ways, through caravan bookings and charitable donations. Most of its income comes from holiday bookings, so it is important there is full occupancy throughout the season. However, as you can imagine it has been affected by lockdown restrictions over the past year or so, and this has had an impact on revenue. The 2021 summer months bookings are looking very buoyant but there are some spaces if you are looking for a UK based holiday. There is also good availability throughout September and October, with a week stay costing as little as £225. If you are considering an autumn UK holiday, contact Holiday Homes Trust to find out more. The Trust is fundraising to replace two caravans based at Paignton and New Milton, both will retire at the end of the year. If you are involved with

CARAVAN OUTSIDE WITH RAMP “The caravan is excellent, spacious and has a fantastic wet room for ease of use for my daughter who is in a wheelchair. We had fun and happiness away from stressful home routine of appointments and anxiety. The best moment was seeing my daughter smile and feel free. It was better than expected”.

DECKING SEATING AREA organisations that fundraise, why not consider The Holiday Homes Trust as your adopted charity. Your fundraising efforts will make a huge difference to its work providing affordable and accessible accommodation for families living with disabilities or are disadvantaged. It is amazing to think what coins thrown into a wishing well 50 years ago has generated and it is hoped with your support The Holiday Homes Trust will have another 50 years of providing cherished family moments that will be remembered happily ever after.

NATIONAL TRUST WOODFORD AND DISTRICT CENTRE

At last, some light in the tunnel that has been this global pandemic! We have, with thanks to our various marvelous local publications managed at least, to remind you all of our being here still, and through the advent of 'Zoom' with which we have managed to reach some of our members and interested people with our four talks and these have reminded us of how much we have missed the communal emotion of being together. So, we plan to re-open our meetings with the first at All Saints Church Hall, Woodford Green at 2-30 pm on

Inside Magazine, Chingford and Highams Park

Wednesday the 22nd September, the speaker is Ed Fairey talking about the National Gardens Scheme in Essex, which we hope should appeal to all. More news hopefull in the next issue with the rest of the Winter Season meetings and other National Trust local news. Certainly, one item will be London 'visits', as plans are in action to take a group to the National Army Museum in Chelsea hopefully in October! With best wishes to all in Woodford and Wanstead areas, Buckhurst Hill, Loughton, Highams Park, Chigwell and Chingford. Keep well and safe and may the force be with you!
