Villager’s Travels: Anyone for skiing? As the ski season draws to a close, Churchwarden John Lamb and wife Pauline recount a trip to their favourite resort.
auline and I have been skiing for more years than we can remember and in that time we have been very fortunate in being able to test the slopes in many countries in Europe, Scandinavia and the Americas. However our first love is Zermatt in Switzerland and it was to there that we returned in February. As you may know, Zermatt sits at some 4,800 feet above sea level at the top of its valley and is dominated by the mighty Matterhorn. Originally a small pastoral community it is now one of the world’s foremost climbing and ski resorts but it still retains a village feeling and in the centre one can walk from one end of the Bahnhofstrasse to the other in 10 minutes. There are two suburban areas which have been developed over the last twenty or so years but I would judge the whole town to be no bigger than, say, Wendover. In the old part many of the original buildings still survive, and are often lived in, with animals on the ground floor and living accommodation above – a form of central heating! These homes and stores are usually built on stone pillars some two feet high with a large round flat stone at the top to prevent rats from getting in! The village is car free – cars must be left at the next village down
the valley with the journey continued on the mountain railway. Transport is available in the village by way of electric carts, rather like golf buggies, and some of the hotels have horse drawn carriages. There are also electrically driven buses to take skiers to the gondola - one of the three starting points for the slopes - which is outside the immediate village with the other two (one a rack and pinion train, the other a funicular) close to the centre. Many of the shops along the Bahnhofstrasse are world famous names – particularly watches and jewellery – where window shopping is more the name of the game but there are still plenty of others to meet every need. There is a wide variety of restaurants and bars – Elsie’s Bar is very well-known for champagne and oysters, but beer and wine as well! However we are of the firm opinion that the best food, often very simple, and certainly the best atmosphere can be found in the mountains. We have three favourites, two of which have spectacular views of the Matterhorn and it is always necessary to book if a table, inside or out, is required between noon and 2pm. One has an Irish band playing on the terrace and it is certainly a bit different to try dancing in ski boots! We tend to go early or late as the mood takes us (Continued on page 11)
This winter provided some of the most picturesque scenes the Chilterns has to offer, as well as the most disruption, potholesâ€Ś. [Pictures from Marilyn & Scott Davies, Anna Rammel, Fr John.]
Celebrity Connections Little Missenden Church Patronal Festival 2010
reparations are gathering pace for this year’s Festival of Title of Little Missenden Parish Church—the birthday of St John the Baptist in June. The Patronal Festival will this year take place on the weekend of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June, the centre piece of which will be the Festival of Flowers in the Parish Church, and numerous stalls, and refreshments outside in the churchyard. This year we have decided to revive the particularly successful ingredient of the 2004 Festival by inviting parishioners in each of the villages to create and display scarecrows throughout the weekend. Many of you will remember the population of the Parish being swelled by the arrival of these inanimate characters, who popped up in all manner of locations - at the garden gate, on the village green, in the school playground, in the choir stalls at church, outside the pub, by the roadside… A preliminary meeting was held at Little Missenden Village Hall a few weeks ago, to which a couple of dozen old hands and new to the art of scarecrowing gathered to learn more. This year we are adopting the theme for the Festival (flowers, scarecrows and all) of ‘Celebrity Connections’, celebrating the many associations that the Parish, and Little Missenden in particular, has with the world of cinema, television, theatre, industry, and sport. Not only have numerous ‘Midsomer Murders’
been committed at a number of locations in Little Missenden and Hyde Heath, but joining John Nettles in the Parish have been the likes of actors Charles Dance, Emelia Fox, Sheila Hancock, Niamh Cusack (who were filmed in ‘Fallen Angel’ for ITV at Little Missenden Church and the Manor House), Paul Bettany and Holywood actress Jennifer Connelly (filmed in ‘Creation’ at the church in 2008 as Mr & Mrs Charles Darwin), Felicity Kendal in Rosemary & Thyme, Diana Rigg, Dawn French et al in The Vicar of Dibley (Missenden Manor appeared in every episode of the longrunning comedy as the home of David Horton, Chair of Dibley Parish Council) and others, not least the association with children’s author Roald Dahl, and those darlings of the British Cinema in its 1950’s heyday, Dulcie Gray and Michael Denison, and our own present-day star of stage and screen, Jenny Higham; among many other celebrity connections, Herbert (Lord) Austin, founder of the Great British automobile marque, was baptised in Little Missenden Church, British Olympic Champion Tony Nash lived in the village at the time of his Gold Medal victory in the Bobsleigh in Innsbruck in 1964; former landlord of the Crown pub Ron How was British Speedway Champion in the 1960’s, and in the top 5 in the world, and Ron’s son Trevor, current landlord of the Crown, was a successful player with Watford FC under Sir Elton (Continued on page 7)
Scarecrow on Chalk Lane, Hyde Heath, 2004 6
(Continued from page 6) Johnâ€™s chairmanship. Our hope is that budding scarecrow artists across the Parish will create models of various celebrities, some of them in their famous locations, and that combined with the Open Gardens in Little Missenden, many of which have been locations featured in film and television, and the cunningly themed celebrity Flower arrangements in the church, this will be a Festival to remember. If you would like to know more about any aspects of the Festival, please contact the Parish Office on 862008 Barbara Cann will be pleased to give guidance on scarecrow making, Margaret Washington will be glad for donations or other contribution to the Flower Festival, and Cynthia Hopkins would be delighted to know if you would be willing to open a garden for the weekend - thanks to all of them for their work on behalf the Parish.
Clockwise from top-left: Dawn French, Charles Dance, Paul Bettany, John Nettles are among the many celebrity connections with Little Missenden.
More tea vicar?
tarting with the Bank Holiday weekend , Sunday May 30th, we will be providing and serving English Cream Teas at Little Missenden Church from 2.30pm to 5pm, every Sunday afternoon until August 29th. We are delighted that a number of volunteers have already stepped forward to help co-ordinate teams, produce cakes, scones etc, and help serve on these Sundays - so many, in fact, that noone should have to cater for more than one Sunday during the season. That said, there is always room for more help, and we would be delighted if you felt able to contribute in some way. We are grateful to churchwarden John Lamb for coordinating this project, and if you would like to know more, please do contact
him on 784889. A further meeting for willing volunteers is being held on Thursday April 22nd at 7.30pm in the church.

The Women’s Institute was formed in 1915 with two clear aims: to revitalise rur al communities and to encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then our aims have broadened and we are now the largest women’s organisation in the UK. We celebrated our 90th anniversary in 2005 and currently have 205,000 members in 6,500 WIs. We play a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

The Annual Charity Ramble followed by supper in the Village Hall will be held on 17th June at 6.30pm. The cost will be £6.50. The monthly walks resumed this month and future dates will be 29th April and 27th May. Details to follow. Barbara wished the Quiz team of Jayne, Avril and Christine good luck in the WI Inter-County heat to be held on 25th March. The speaker for the evening was Jeremy Mulkern, accompanied by his dog Billy, who spoke about Dogs Helping People. He socialised puppies before they went on to be given intensive training to discern when people needed medication, as in Diabetes and Addison’s Disease. Dogs could also smell cancer from urine specimens.
(Contact Jayne Faversham Tel 864677)
A video was shown of one of these remarkable dogs working with his owner who had Addison’s Disease. Jeremy explained that the dog was trained to sense when his owner needed medication and to fetch it.
Some very interesting forthcoming events were announced including an outing to Highgrove Gardens on 6th September. Numbers are limited to 25 and the cost will be £15 plus £15.50 for the coach. Names and deposits of £20 will be needed no later than May.
The small charity based in Westcott is the only one of its kind and puppy socialisers and support were needed for their invaluable work.
arbara Aris, President, welcomed all to the meeting and read out a letter of thanks from the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home following the collection made in memory of Caroline.
There will be a 90th BFWI Anniversary Garden Party to be held in Stowe Gardens at 11am onwards on 10th August; a Big Friendly WI Coffee morning in the week beginning 7th June and a Summer Outing on 10th July to Merriments Gardens in Hurst Green, Sussex followed by a visit to Chartwell House.
Members were reminded that contributions of cakes and help would be needed to serve teas at the Village Fete on 8th May. There will also be a Flower Festival in St Andrews Church that weekend and Di Coombes kindly volunteered to provide an arrangement on behalf of the Hyde Heath WI.
The next meeting will be at 8pm on 8th April when Edward Dixon will give a talk on Heroines of the First World War. The competition will be a War Memento.

Who do you think you are?
he line at the airport was long, the crowd pressing. The man at the head of the line was furious: “I want to be seated now, I cant wait in this line, I’ve got first class tickets!” He went on and on. The attendant behind the counter was patiently trying to explain the problem to him, but he would have none of it. Finally he shouted, ‘Do you know who I am?” Immediately, the sharp-witted attendant picked up the microphone and announced: “Attention, we have a gentleman here who doesn’t know who he is. If anyone can identify this man, please come to the front desk.” We laugh and take pleasure in his comeuppance, but here is a man who has all his identity wrapped up in what he does, what people say about him, and what he possesses. Do we ever ask ourselves, ‘who am I - really? What am I beneath the cosmetics, the façade, the tyrrany of fashion. What core remains when all the shifting sands of time empty out. Who am I? What is it that gives you your identity?
What Christians know and celebrated at Christmas is that God sent his Son Jesus to earth, to show his love for us. That same Jesus demonstrated how much he loves us as he went through agony on the cross at Easter. One of the reasons God wanted to show us how deeply he loves us is because he longs for us to know who we really are. We are loved by him not for what we do, or what we have, or what people think of us, but because God looks at each of us and says ‘You are my beloved.’ What is said of Jesus, is said of us, we are beloved daughters or sons of God. That - if we will accept it - is our core identity, and I can’t think of a better identity to have. To be a beloved child of the One who made this world and everything in it. This, and maybe only this, in the fastchanging materialistic world in which we live is the one unchangeable reality in our lives. It’s a reality we can’t earn, or buy, just accept! [First appeared in St Peter’s Church, Heversham].
Flower Festival Saturday May 8th as part of the Hyde Heath Fete & Sunday May 9th Come and see.
Walk the Dog on Saturday May 8th us for this year’s ‘Beating the J oin Bounds’ of the Parish, a 13.2 mile walk around the three villages of the Parish, traditionally completed at ‘Rogationtide’, the days leading up to the Feast of the Ascension of Christ. The walk resembles the shape of a dog (‘Bounder’, the Parish mascot!), ‘Nodding the Head’ around Hyde Heath, ‘Wagging the Tail’ around Little Kingshill, and ‘Shaking the Paw’ around Little Missenden. Contact Peter Charles on 713186 for more information. The walk departs Little Missenden Church at 9.30am on Saturday 8 May.
Skiing in Zermatt (Continued from page 4) except for our last day when we always lunch at a rustic restaurant called Zum See which has the reputation of being perhaps the best restaurant in the Alps. As it is situated just below the first mid-station we have a table at about 2.30pm, ski back to town and leave our gear then get the gondola back up. It is a short walk down and then after perhaps more than a few drinks we can walk the whole way down – about an hour! This year it was an absolutely gorgeous walk through the pine forest. In fact this year was the best we can recall for both the snow conditions and the weather. There had been several metres of snow over the preceding weeks and whilst we were there every day bar the last was wall-to-wall sunshine and blue skies. There was virtually no wind - even at the top station (11,500 feet) there was barely a whisper – and the temperature was just right: some -3c to zero in the town and -3c to -10c on the slopes. It is difficult to describe how majestic and fantastic the mountains are in those circumstances. There is a simple but very attractive English Church staffed all year – dedicated to St Peter – which reflects those majestic feelings and the long history of climbing. (The Parish Church graveyard holds many of those who have died on the Matterhorn and nearby mountains). Visiting Chaplains are there for, generally, a three week turn and we have been
privileged to meet many interesting priests, each with their own take on how to meet the needs of a cosmopolitan bunch of visitors. This year there was a moving Candlemas service at the same time as here at home at St John’s. Because we travel mid-week we are able to attend a Sunday service whereas for those travelling at the weekend that is not always so easy. Our journey starts with a flight to Geneva with a train from the airport station, alongside Lake Geneva, through Montreux and direct to a small station at the entrance to the Zermatt valley followed by an hour on the rack and pinion mountain train with ever encroaching mountains. The Swiss trains, particularly the expresses, are very good and punctual to the second and the whole journey is very enjoyable. We have stayed at the same hotel, winter and summer, every time we have been to Zermatt and we always receive a very warm welcome from the long established Swiss family owners. One benefit is that we are given excellent daily advice on where the best slopes are likely to be found! Over the years we have been very fortunate in that we have had very few injuries. One of my daughters broke her wrist when she was quite young and some seven years ago Pauline broke her shoulder – she said that coming down the mountain on the blood wagon was the worst bit! That apart, bruises and aches and pains have been the worst of it but nothing the sauna would not ease! Roll on next year! 11

o Team GB have returned home from the Vancouver Winter Olympics with a solitary Gold Medal of which Amy Williams (who took the Gold in the Skeleton Bobsled), Team GB, and we, can be justifiably proud. But did you know that Little Missenden shares a connection with Amy Williams? Amy prepared for her Olympian feat at Bath University’s Bobsled push-start track, which was opened in 2002 by Lord Glentoran, otherwise known as Robin Dixon, who, with Tony Nash, were Britain’s last Winter Olympic Gold medallists in the two-man Bob at Innsbruck in 1964. At the time of his gold medal triumph, Tony Nash lived in Little Missenden, and many villagers will remember celebrating the return of the conquering hero in the village hall in 1964. It was whilst researching the story of Little Missenden’s Olympic Champion that I discovered that the rarest medal in the Olympics wasn't created from gold, but from a bolt.
At the Innsbruck Games in 1964, the favourite to win Gold in the two-man bob was Italian Eugenio Monti, widely considered a legend of the sport, winning ten World Championship medals and six Olympic medals. Having completed his last run in the lead, Monti became aware that the British team of Tony Nash and Richard Dixon had broken a bolt on their sled and as a result would not have been able to compete. He immediately instructed that the equivalent bolt should be removed from his sled and sent up the hill to Nash and Dixon. Thanks to the generosity of Monti the British team went on to complete the run in the fastest time, thus claiming the gold medal, while Monti
and his partner won bronze. Not only was he a man of great sportsmanship in the heat of battle as this act shows, he was also very gracious in defeat as when he was berated by the Italian press for his actions, he simply said, “Nash didn’t win because I gave him the bolt. He won because he had the fastest run”.
“The most important thing is not to win, but to take part”. These are the words that were uttered by the founder of the modern Olympic Games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. Over the years many people have heeded these words when competing in the Olympics and as a result a select few have been awarded the Pierre de Coubertin medal of Sportsmanship for demonstrating the essential spirit of the Olympic Games. It is a medal that is considered by many to be more prestigious than winning gold as in many cases the recipients of the medal have sacrificed victory in order to show a high level of sportsmanship. To date only ten people have been awarded this honour. Eugenio Monti was the first.
