NOT THE VICAR’S LETTER Hello everyone, when asked if I would consider doing a ‘Not the Vicar’s letter’ I thought “Ahh that will be nice”, now the time is here I’m thinking what did I agree to?! :) So here we are slowly finding our way out of the end of Lockdown 3. We have the knowledge and positiveness of the vaccines that will help us to do this and a lot of us have been lucky enough to have received one, and are awaiting our second and others are awaiting their first when they are called. We have all had to adjust our lives in ways we would never imagine, and with help and support most of us have found new ways to do this or learnt to tap into it. With our lives totally changed, how have we been able to continue to show God’s love and share the Good News with the community and people around us? It is a challenge I feel we have risen to and continue to look at, evaluate and learn as we go along. I have found this a challenge and also very rewarding, I’m used to working face-to-face with people, and life now has been shielding and working from home, I have learnt to embrace and even enjoy the many ‘Zoom’ meetings and drop-ins I attend, videoing songs, story times and craft activities in and from my front room. I have rediscovered the joy of sending and receiving notes and cards, I also try to make a point of messaging or calling the people I am thinking of, something I sadly did not do enough. I try to support local traders and 4


NOT THE VICAR’S LETTER companies are providing local people and families with much needed jobs too. I feel our views have changed as to who the ‘keyworkers’ in our country are , and it takes so many people to help us all to live our lives comfortably and safely. It makes me think of the phrase ‘There is no ‘I’ in Team’; we are all part of a massive team, all needing to play our relevant part whatever that is, no matter how small. I am seeing God in action in our world in so many ways, He has taught me that He is present in the midst of a family or situation when I can’t be. But I know that God can reach them. He’s not affected by the virus and His power isn’t limited by social distancing. I pray that God will give us all wisdom for each day as we navigate how to share and show His love in a mask-wearing, two-metre-socialdistance-keeping, COVID-19 world. May we enter the season of Lent with open hearts and ears to listen to how God is speaking to us. I cannot wait to meet you all face-to-face again when it is safe for us to do so and in the meantime, I will continue to hold you all in my prayers and continue trying to serve God in the best ways available to me. Remember: God does the saving, but He allows us to be a part of the serving (1 Corinthians 3:6-7).

FOOD FOR THOUGHT Pleasing spring again is here! Trees and fields in bloom appear! Hark! the birds, with artless lays, Warble their Creator's praise! Where, in winter, all was snow, Now the flowers in clusters grow; And the corn, in green array, Promises a harvest-day. What a change has taken place! Emblem of the spring of grace; How the soul, in winter, mourns Till the Lord, the Sun, returns; Till the Spirit's gentle rain, Bids the heart revive again; Then the stone is turned to flesh, And each grace springs forth afresh. Lord, afford a spring to me! Let me feel like what I see; Ah! my winter has been long, Chilled my hopes, and stopped my song! Winter threatened to destroy Faith and love, and every joy; Photos ©PrestonPics If thy life was in the root, Still I could not yield thee fruit. Lord, I long to be at home, Where these changes never come! Where the saints no winter fear, Where 'tis spring throughout the year: How unlike this state below! There the flowers unwithering blow; There no chilling blasts annoy; All is love, and bloom, and joy..

Speak, and by thy gracious voice Make my drooping soul rejoice; O beloved Saviour, haste, Tell me all the storms are past: On thy garden deign to smile, Raise the plants, enrich the soil; Soon thy presence will restore Life to what seemed dead before.

John Newton (1725-1807) 6

ONE WORLD: NEWS FROM RWANDA Dear Family, Thank you so much for your New Year wishes. I am first apologizing for not receiving this message on time. I had a problem in opening my email box. However by God's grace I have just read it. God bless you! Corona virus is still affecting life, work, schools and churches. Next Sunday we will go to church again with some instructions. We thank God because the Covid vaccine will be given to people starting with vulnerable people. In general my family is doing well. Our children are learning online, me and dad are working from home. It is a really strange lifestyle. Sorry to hear that Greta is still sick but we are still praying and trusting God. May the Lord continue to watch over her and all of us. His faithfulness is everlasting. Dear Family, I wish you Happy New Year 2021 and may the Prince of peace continue to protect and provide for us. We love you. Share my our warm greetings to all our friends in Hythe. With love, Jeanne

TRIBUTE TO KEITH BOLWELL I was pleased to be asked to write a tribute to Keith. Maureen and I used to visit him and Sheila to deliver their magazine. This started when Sheila lost mobility and could no longer take part in Church activities. She used to enjoy taking photos of Church events. She was taken into hospital and then to a Nursing Home. With only a neighbour`s cat for company Keith longed for the day when she could return home, but sadly it never came. He enjoyed telling us about his life and we told him he should write a book. At the age of fourteen he would cycle from Southampton to Hamble, where he worked in an aircraft factory. One of his jobs was to crawl along inside an aircraft wing to inspect the riveting because he was the only person small enough. After a time he went to work for the Ordnance Survey which was then in London Road. During the war he served in the R.A.F. as a wireless operator and went on bombing raids in a Lancaster. On being posted to India he was involved in relaying important messages from Britain to Australia. He could remember seeing Louis Mountbatten driving around in a Jeep. When on leave he liked to travel as far as he could in India to visit places of interest. After the war he returned to work at the Ordnance Survey until he retired. Now came the chance for Sheila and Keith to visit his son who is a well respected wildlife photographer, first in New Zealand and then in Canada. We treasure the memory of his friendship. Norman Curtis 9


MISSION TO SEAFARERS I am pleased to say that John Attenborough, the local Port Chaplain of the ‘Mission to Seafarers’ has now fully recovered from a recent illness and that the Mission is still carrying out its work of visiting the crews of ships coming into the port. With all the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place around the world, seafarers are often unable to leave their vessels and can feel very isolated. The Mission’s visits can help crew members to know that they are not forgotten and small acts of kindness can mean a lot to them. At this time of year in particular, donations of woolly hats and scarves are really appreciated, together with small gifts, such as bars of chocolate or hair shampoo. As many people know, there is a donation box for the ‘Mission to Seafarers’ at the back of St John’s church, but this isn’t accessible at the moment because of the current lockdown. In order to make up for this, I have placed a black plastic box outside my own house at 54 Velsheda Court, Hythe Marina Village and Norman and Maureen Curtis have another at their house at 28 Atheling Road, Hythe. You may wish to include an occasional visit to one of these boxes as part of your daily walk! I can also be contacted at 02380 879992 to pick up donations, or to supply knitting specifications if these are required. My thanks to everybody who has continued to supply donations throughout the past year – it really is appreciated and I try to get your gifts to the ship visitors as soon as I can. With best wishes.

OBITUARY: REV JEFF WATSON Our Parish was much blessed by Jeff in his retirement years, in which he gave so much to each and all of us. He was a master of the art of preaching, always memorable, thought-provoking, and rooted in the Scriptures with humour and humanity. Jeff was learned and lucid and when he was the Celebrant, he took us Jeff and Rosemary at Hymnathon, 2016 with him into the deepest moments and meanings of Communion with Our Lord and with each other. Jeff asked me to come to a heart-breaking funeral. When he reached the Committal, he came to sit by the weeping mother, holding her tight, and sharing her sorrow, but also giving her support and security. All the time, Jeff's ministry was shared with and by Rosemary. We remember them both with gratitude and affection. Jeff's ministry in our Diocese included ten years as Vicar of Christ Church, Winchester, and a further eight years at Bitterne. He was Rural Dean of Southampton from 1983 to 1993 - and I was Rural Dean of Basingstoke from 1984 -1993. But it wasn't only our Diocese that brought us together. There was an extraordinary day when we met unexpectedly in an obscure and water-logged pub in the Wye Valley, the Boat Inn in Penalt. Valerie and I were on holiday, and had crossed a derelict railway bridge across the River Wye. And then Jeff and Rosemary arrived. They, too, were on holiday. Greeting them, was a moment we all remembered through the years that followed. As Jeff lost so much of his memory to Alzheimer's Disease, this was a memory he often referred to. 12


OBITUARY: REV JEFF WATSON Jeff became Archdeacon of Ely from 1993 until his retirement. At St John's and St Anne's we benefitted so much from his wide and varied ministry. His deep, reassuring voice was a reminder of his other interests, which included his annual visit to America to sing in an award-winning Barbershop Choir. What a remarkable man! Thank you, Jeff.

WELCOME TO NICHOLAS! Tricia and Andy are pleased to announce that Natasha gave birth to a little boy on 12th January 2021, a brother for Alyssia and Sianna.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER The WORLD DAY OF PRAYER this year is on Friday 5 March . Our local service was due to have been held at Cornerstone URC church on that day, however this, due to all the Covid-19 restrictions, has had to be cancelled. There are hopes that it might be possible to hold something in the Autumn. If you would like to have a copy of the service sheet, I have a few in hand, so please contact me. The country leading the prayers this year is Vanuatu, 2000 miles NE of Australia, population around 312,000, which suffered badly from major cyclones in 2015 when 96% of their crops were destroyed and also 2017, plus eruption from one of seven active volcanoes, on Ambae Island in 2017 and 2018. Our group of local churches is usually able to send donations of around £350 after the annual service, so if anyone would like to make a donation direct, would you send it to: World Day of Prayer for England, Wales and N Ireland, Commercial Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN12RR Tel 01892 541411, email office@wwdp.org.uk You might be interested to know that the Service in 2022 will be led by a team from our own country, England, Wales and N Ireland: ’I know the plans I have for you’. Together in Prayer, Jenny Bithell

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER A Prayer for Vanuatu 2021 Holy God, Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in them: We join with the Christian women of Vanuatu in praise to you – for fertile land and fresh air – for the sweet melody of the birds, for land animals and the mysterious creatures of the deep – and for the sounds of children playing. We thank you for the example of the Christian women of Vanuatu – for their trust in you – for their fortitude as they struggle to provide food for their families and education for their children – things that we in this country so often take for granted. We ask your forgiveness for our thoughtlessness, our carelessness and our lack of foresight which has led to the pollution of the environment and the current climate emergency, and is causing irrevocable damage to Vanuatu and to other low-lying Pacific islands. We pray that you will help us – to listen more carefully to you and to your Word – to build our homes and communities on its strong foundations – and to work together towards a world where resources are used more sustainably; where justice and peace reign; and where all your creatures can live in safety and harmony. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen. Elizabeth Burroughs https://www.wwdp.org.uk/ prayers/vanuatu-2/ 15

TRIBUTE TO SHEILA KENDRICK In her last years when Sheila could no longer cope with coming to Church, the Church went to her on special festivals. Reception of Holy Communion always involved a pot of homemade marmalade. She loved her marmalade and fortunately we made many pots of it. Sheila always giggled like a schoolgirl when I unpacked my bag with all the ‘Holy’ things for communion together with the pot of marmalade. In fact she giggled over a lot of things. I used to describe to her some of the things we were doing at St John’s and she would sit there listening and laughing until her chair shook. She loved to know what was going on at St John’s, especially if the children were involved in some way.

Sheila was a very generous lady to both her family and friends and she took more than a passing interest in St John’s. She regularly contributed to the jewellery table at church sales and her brightly coloured silky scarves were eagerly purchased and worn with huge pleasure. Sheila was a stylish lady. a great supporter of the Jaeger shop in Lymington and she possessed a wonderful hat for every occasion, especially Sundays. Sheila was a Trustee of the United Reformed Church in Wimborne, a role she took over from her father. When the church had an anniversary party Sheila invited two friends from St John’s to accompany her. It turned out to be a very lively party with games (pass the parcel with either chocolate or a bible verse between the layers) , an ice cream van and a cream tea. She could not have enjoyed it more. Sheila’s connection with Wimborne was strong and life long and never really left her. She had property there, an early spiritual home and many friends in the town. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Peter Murphy. 20


FROM THE ARCHIVES: AN UNKNOWN BENEFACTRESS Some years ago now, I found myself appointed as Church Archivist (acting, unpaid) and being handed a pile of documents and photographs which were all that were left after many had been destroyed as not worth keeping or had deteriorated after being transferred to the tin hut. Amongst the ones I received was the following Deed of Gift from 1823, and which prompted a certain amount of research. Deed of Gift Mrs. Sophia Sheppard 1823 THIS INDENTURE made the sixteenth day of January in the third year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the Fourth by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland King Defender of the Faith and in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty three BETWEEN Sophia Sheppard of Amport in the County of Southampton Widow and Relict of the Reverend Doctor Thomas Sheppard late Rector of Amport aforesaid of the one part and the Reverend Martin Joseph Routh, Doctor in Divinity, President of Saint Mary Magdalen College in the university of Oxford and the Scholars of the same College of the other part WITNESSETH that the said Sophia Sheppard HATH given and granted and by these presents DOTH give and grant unto the said President and Scholars Clerks THE SUM of three hundred and seventeen pounds seventeen shillings and sixpence which hath lately been laid out in the purchase of Four hundred pounds Stock in the Three per Cents Consolidated Bank Annuities by a transfer by her and an investment of so much stock in the names of the said President and Scholars IN TRUST to pay the Interest and Dividends arising therefrom as the same shall from time to time become due and payable unto the Minister who shall or may be appointed of the New Chapel at Hythe in the parish of Fawley in the Diocese of Winchester to commence and be payable to the said Minister immediately after the said Chapel shall be consecrated Which said sum of four hundred pounds so invested as aforesaid . She the said Sophia Sheppard doth hereby declare it so transferred to and invested in the names of the said President and Scholars to the intent that the same shall become 21


FROM THE ARCHIVES: AN UNKNOWN BENEFACTRESS part of the revenue of the said President and Scholars Clerks for the use and purpose aforesaid. IN WITNESS whereof the said parties of these presents have hereunto set their Hands and Seals the day and year above written.

So who was Sophia Sheppard?

From Magdalen College Oxford, I found that Sophia Sheppard was the widow of a Fellow of the College and sister of the President Martin Routh D.D., (d1854 in his 100’th year.). Her late husband, Revd. Dr. Thomas Sheppard (1728-1814) had been a Fellow and Dean of Divinity of Magdalen College. He was given the valuable Magdalen living of Basingstoke but spent most of his time as Vicar of Amport near Andover and also Rector of Quarley, and was very wealthy from his being Rector of Basingstoke. At age 73, he married Sophia, aged 31. Dying 13 years later, he left everything to Sophia, with various covenants to improve Amport. She built the village school and a row of almshouses, was a generous benefactress of Magdalen College and later made bequests to Bromley College and Theale Church. I have yet to find how we came to be so favoured, as the gift was left in trust to Magdalen until “the Chapel shall be consecrated”. (,unless there was some connection through Winchester Diocese), They, however, held on to it until 1864 when their records show “£400 left by Mrs Sheppard for Hythe Chapel be applied to building a parsonage house there” There had been no parsonage prior to this as the previous incumbent, The Rev Irby, owned his own property and his successor, The Rev John Marriot, would have been without housing. If anyone has a photograph of this Parsonage before its being replaced by PC Builders and other things, I would like a copy for the archive! Roy German 22

HUMOUR PAGE Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, double-pane, energy-efficient kind. Today, I got a call from B&Q who installed them. The man complained that the work had been completed a year ago, and I still hadn’t paid for them. HHHelloo….. just because I’m blonde doesn’t mean that I am automatically stupid. So I told him just what his fast-talking salesman told me last year….that these windows would pay for themselves in a year. Helloooooo, it’s been a year, so they’re paid for, I told him. There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally hung up. He never called back. I bet he felt like an idiot!!! I changed my iPod’s name to Titanic, It’s syncing now! England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.

A girl today said she recognized me from the Vegetarians Club, but I’d swear I’ve never met herbivore. I got some batteries that were given out free of charge. A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail. Police were summoned to a local nursery where a three-year-old was resisting a rest. Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He’s all right now. Did you hear about the crossed-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils? I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me. No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery. I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down. Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end. Contributed by Sue Blomley 31
