St Swithun: an apology xvi - vii - mmxii
I am very sorry that in spite of yesterday’s assurances to the contrary I am unable to guarantee forty days of fine weather. This was due to a failure in our systems which was brought to my attention too late to halt yesterday’s rollout. I have let myself down; I have let God down; most of all, I have let you down – and this is the most humbled day of my life. I have, of course, considered my position very carefully but after consultation with the Holy Spirit I have resolved to remain in charge as we work hard to bring you the weather you so rightly deserve. I shall, however, be forfeiting my annual bonus and making an appropriate donation to charity. Mea culpa, St Swithun.

The Russians are coming We are very lucky to have Lyra, the Russian singers from St. Petersburg, visit us again on Saturday 1st September, for a concert of traditional sacred and secular Russian vocal music. Lyra, is a vocal ensemble from St.Petersburg. All singers are professional musicians, singing in different churches of St.Petersburg. Some of them are soloists at musical theatres of the city. Through their performances, they want to introduce the enormous musical heritage of the Russian orthodox Church, as well as traditions of Russian folk music to all people taking an interest in Russia, its history and its culture. Tickets priced ÂŁ5.00 are now available from Jane (680552), Janet (681161) or pay at the door.

Organ Update It has taken longer than hoped but we have now received three quotes for the restoration work to the organ plus an additional quote for cleaning the artwork on the front pipes. We are currently in discussions with the organ consultant John Norman, who wrote the original report, about the quotes and to finalise exactly what work is to be done. This has led to us going back to one of the companies for some additional information. Once this information is received we will be able to choose the company to do the work, know the exact cost of the project and start the process of applying for grants.
Surplus to Requirements Recently the Northamptonshire Record Society held a sale of books that were thought to be surplus to its requirements. Mrs. Jacqui Minchinton spotted a small volume containing the bookplate of “Eliza Raynsford of Finedon”, which she bought, and has generously donated to the Monk’s Cell Library. It is a book containing the poems of John Philips, and was printed in 1744. The Monk’s Cell already contains two other books bearing her bookplate: Sherlock’s A Discourse concerning the Divine Providence  and Prideaux’s The Old and New Testament Connected . Elizabeth Raynsford was the eldest child of Sir John Dolben and was born in 1722. She married John Nicholls Raynsford of Brixworth in 1745, but
her husband died the following year as did their infant daughter, and Elizabeth remained a childless widow until her death in 1810. At her death she owned a mansion in the Grove, called the Grove House, and Finedon Cottage. The book found its way into the hands of Sir John English Dolben, her nephew, for we find written on the back of the front cover: “Sir John English Dolben Baronet’s Gift to his amiably Temper’d Friend Maria Isham. NB: I sham not when I call her amiable”. Maria Isham was resident in Finedon in 1828 and seems to have owned Finedon Cottage at one time. She was the fifth daughter of Sir Justinian Isham (7th Bart.) of Lamport, whose motto Ostendo non Ostento translates as “I show, I sham not”, which contains a pun on Isham, and which Sir English has reproduced in his inscription. Maria died in 1846. But there is a further inscription, by Maria’s great-great-nephew, Henry Isham Longden (1859-1942), one of Northamptonshire’s most eminent historians, who coincidentally was curate at Finedon from 1888 to 1889: “Feb. 1917. This book was in the library of my grandfather, Robert Isham, & came to me after the death of my aunt, Miss M. J. Isham, at Great Missenden in Bucks.” It was obviously Mr. Longden that gave the book to the Record Society. With inscriptions such as these, I am surprised that the Record Society considered the volume to be surplus to its requirements. It is certainly not surplus to the requirements of Finedon Church, and hopefully never will be John Bailey 8

No Going Back! Recently, during a break in the lovely North Yorkshire countryside I embarked on a return trip to Scarborough. It was a very long time since I was a nineteen year old working in a Hotel there during my summer holidays. My college friend and I spent 6 weeks waiting on table, making beds and cleaning bedrooms. All I could recall was an upmarket holiday resort with large houses, numerous hotels and a scenic railway down the cliff to the beach. The most vibrant and practically the only memory was purchasing my first pair of stiletto shoes in iridescent blackberry leather, the latest fashion, from Dolcis shoe shop in Scarborough. They cost almost 2 weeks wages. We both bought a pair and thought we were the height of sophistication – not that we had an opportunity to wear them in public. They stood on the bedroom floor admired from afar for days. Bed making in stiletto heels is not practical. All was not lost, a chance eventually occurred to show off our footwear. A BBC team came to stay in the Hotel to broadcast Max Jaffa and his orchestra live from the Spa on the South Bay. We were invited to the concert and asked to meet one of the team in the foyer of the Spa. Off we stumbled excitably teetering in our new shoes. We met our contact in the foyer who asked us, I want you two girls to walk in late. It is all set up with Max. He will stop the music and speak to you. Just carry on and sit down. Your seats are on the right side in the front row”
There being no health and safety issues in those days thick television cables snaked their way down the aisle. Five minutes into the concert and we found ourselves tottering and weaving down the aisle. Suddenly a bright spot light shone into our eyes, a camera panned in a little too close, the music stopped and I made my live TV debut by tripping over a camera cable diving head first in a totally shocked elderly mans lap. Long gone is Max Jaffa and his Palm Court orchestra. Now in the north bay is a 3000 seat open air theatre guarded by a long line of portable loos. Acts such as JLS, John Barryman, and Russell Watson now grace the stage. What happens when it rains I suppose everyone gets wet. Long gone are the blackberry stilettos and TV appearances. I could not remember the name or the address of the hotel I worked in as they all looked alike years later and changed their names. Sadly I felt on my return that Scarborough like myself had aged and lost some of its sparkle.

In My Day the ramblings of Hubert James In my day it was about this time of year when Finedon celebrated the anniversary of the invention of the comb by holding the annual Barber Day. Now I know you’re thinking that the comb was never invented but that it was always just there. Well of course, that’s not true, there was a time long ago when nobody carried a comb – bit like now. It’s true nobody bothered with combs in the middle ages and then when things got sophisticated the rich folk took to sporting wigs rather than drag anything through their manes. But when wearing wigs died out in the early nineteenth century folk realised they had to do something. That’s when George Coombs from Regent Street spotted a new use for his musical instrument. Now George was a blower in a New Wave jug band. They played at George IV’s coronation along with a young Bruce Forsyth and Tom Jones. They had one tune that called for a rasping buzzing noise and George fashioned a strip of beech into a series of teeth. Looked like a modern comb. He wrapped it in some tissue paper and hummed into it. The song was a hit, but after the concert the new king was complaining about the knots in his hair. George gave him the instrument and told him to run it through his hair.
The king was delighted and named the new fangled contraption, a coomb. Over the years the name changed due to George’s vowel movements and soon everyone was carrying one in their back pocket. So We celebrated George with Barber day when hairdressers from all over would compete for the Golden Comb by coming up with new hairstyles. Course most of them sank without trace but two became well known. Alma Clotheson had a load of customer’s with long unmanageable hair so she would backcomb it within an inch of its roots ‘til it stood upright. ‘That will make it behave,” she said. Behave became the Beehive. But the one you’ll all remember was a lad from Corby called Ken Tyre. To be honest he was a lazy so-and-so and he get fed up in mid-cut. So instead of short back and sides, you’d end up with short sides and long back. Still it became popular. In fact it became so famous they made a record about it. You’ll have heard of ‘The Mullets of KenTyre.
Say a Prayer Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away. "Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer." said his mother. "I don't need to," the boy replied. "Of course, you do." his mother insisted. "We always say prayer before eating at our house." "That's at our house." Johnny explained. "But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook!" 13
The Bishop of Brixworth writes The greatest adventure of my life
exploration expanded our horizons. Sir Francis Drake was not only an explorer but also a poet. His famous prayer on leaving Portsmouth for South America in 1577 challenges us to be adventurous with God: Disturb us, Lord, when We are too pleased with ourselves, When our dreams have come true Because we have dreamed too little When we have arrived safely Because we have sailed too close to the shore.
As I approached a “significant” birthday recently I was reminded of the children’s song by Alan Price, “It’s an adventure following Jesus, it’s an adventure learning of him.” I’m pleased to report that, since the Christian faith came alive for me in my early teens, it has been the greatest adventure of my life. The wonderful Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Her Majesty the Queen earlier this summer were a magnificent thanksgiving for a life-time of public Christian service. Her faith has been a living example of King George VI’s famous wartime Christmas broadcast: “I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year. ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown’ and he replied ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God’.”
Disturb us, Lord, when With the abundance of things we possess We have lost our thirst For the waters of life; Having fallen in love with life, We have ceased to dream of eternity And in our efforts to build a new earth, We have allowed our vision Of the new Heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly To venture on wider seas Where storms will show your mastery; Where losing sight of land, We shall find the stars. We ask you to push back The horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future In strength, courage, hope and love.
Rt Revd John Holbrook Bishop of Brixworth
The Jubilee reminded me of the adventurers of the first great Elizabethan age, whose voyages of 14

In July Bishop John, with Mission in Society Officer Robert Hill, enjoyed a tour of Northampton Hope Centre’s new base at Oasis House in Campbell Street, near the town centre. They were inspired by what they saw. The Centre provides day centre facilities and an education and development programme for homeless and disadvantaged people. Since their move to Oasis House, in May, they have been able to work much more closely with partner agencies under the same roof. “Having the night shelter plus local housing and medical services in the same building improves significantly our customers’ access to the services and support they need”, said Catherine Maryon, Vice Chair of the Hope Centre. Bishop John agreed. “Visiting the Hope Centre in their old premises and then in their wonderful new building was an inspiration. I saw what organisations can achieve when they work together to change people’s lives,” he said. To find out how you can support the work of the Hope Centre visit www.northamptonhopecentre.org.uk
