From the Vicarage February 2012. One hundred years ago, on February 2nd 1912, Miss Ellen Mackworth-Dolben died at the Hall. She was the last of her line, a line which stretched back five hundred years in Finedon, and with her death ended not only an era but an age. Within a couple of years the Great War broke out, a war from which dozens of Finedon men would not return. And for those who did return, the world was different. It was not only that there was no Dolben at the Hall and no Paul in the Vicarage (Canon Paul had died the year before after sixty-three year as Vicar); it was that the certainty and stability they represented could no longer hold. The Hall passed from owner to owner and gradually fell into a neglect which would no doubt have grieved Miss MackworthDolben; the Vicarage too, which a hundred years ago had five indoor servants and its own shepherd, could no longer be maintained as the comfortable home of a wealthy gentleman parson. Times change, the old order passeth; and although it is heartening to see both Hall and Vicarage restored to good, if subdivided, order, there is a sort of sadness that attends the end of things. But also, for Christians, there is hope too. February 2nd is Candlemas, which recalls the presentation of Jesus by his parents to the religious officials at the Temple in Jerusalem. One of them, the aged priest Simeon himself on the threshold of the hereafter saw the infant boy and said: “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace : according to thy word.For mine eyes have seen : thy salvation. The old order passeth – but behold, all things are become new. Yours in Christ, Fr Richard.

Bell Ringers Annual Outing

This year’s bell ringers outing will be to the cathedral city of Chester on Saturday 28th April and the coach fare will be £12.00. If you would like to book seats on the coach, please put your name on the list at the back of the church or telephone Pat Parker on 680841. Chester Chester is arguably the richest city in Britain for archaeological and architectural treasures preserved to this day from the time of the Roman occupation. Its massive harbour and border position made it one of the finest strategic outposts of the Roman Empire. After the Romans withdrew circa AD400, the prosperous city fell prey to marauding Danes and Saxons and was virtually derelict by 900. The Normans reached Chester circa 1070 and a revival began, Chester Castle was built, housing Hugh the Wolf, nephew of William the Conqueror. By the Middle Ages, Chester had become an affluent and prosperous port. It was

during this time that the famous Rows were built. so that by the 13th century, it had again become a centre of shipping trade, a port serving Scotland, Ireland, France and Spain. In the 14th century began the Mystery Plays and pageants for which the city became famous. Henry VIII granted a charter in 1541 and made Chester a bishopric. By the 15th century, the Dee began to silt up and gradually, the seaborne trade died. But throughout this chequered history, the Roman walls remained virtually intact. The walls extend in a 2 mile circuit and give a vivid reminder of what a medieval fortified town was like. By the 1700s, the River Dee had changed course and the port had silted up. The walls were no longer needed for defence and were restyled into the pleasant walkways that we enjoy today. The Industrial Revolution brought canals, railways and roads. It was during this time that many important buildings were restored. The most distinctive medieval feature of the city is The Rows. These are double-level walkways with a continuous line of balconies and with shops at street and first-floor levels. The Rows are unique and were certainly in existence in the 14th century.

Afternoon Tea & Epiphany Evensong Afternoon Tea will be served in the Church on Sunday 5th February between 4.30 & 5.30 pm, price £3.00. Evensong will be at 6.00 pm followed by light refreshments. Everyone welcome.

Street Lights in Finedon It has come to the church’s attention that because many of the street lights have been turned off, the older folk in Finedon are having problems going out in the evenings after dark. Eyesight starts to fail in later years especially in the dark and older folk are struggling and are even afraid to go out when it is dark. There have been two cases recently of older folk waiting for lifts getting into wrong cars. Perhaps after church services, meetings and social functions people with good night vision could ensure the elderly are escorted to their lifts. Even better endeavour to get the street lights turned back on because it must be a long, long winter for those who are too frightened to go out in the dark.

Edna has also performed with Marguerite Pattern OBE. Admission is £2.00 for members and £3.00 for non-members including light refreshments. A raffle will also be held.

Women’s Institute We have a 'Craft demonstration by Amy' on Monday 13th February at the Mission Room starting at 7.30 pm.. Visitors will be made

Christmas Eve Candles The candles on Christmas eve looked very pretty lining the Church path. If you have bought a candle would you like to collect it from the vicinity of the North door. Please bring them back next year, we will replace the candle and once again light them on Christmas Eve.

April 27th 1937. Although the book is based on fact with name changes of some of its participants the main characters were fictional. The book gave me the motivation to visit Guernica which I was able to do so last year. Strangely enough I arrived on the 14th anniversary of the day of reconciliation with the Germans which I discovered when I visited the Museum of Peace. The old Market place is now a garden of rest but the Oak tree standing on the hill above still remains. Unfortunately in 2004 due to very hot dry consecutive summers the actual surviving tree from the bombing died but its trunk is still in situ. A new tree has been planted from its acorns in the vicinity. One more thing left to complete my journey. A visit to the Museo Reine Sofia, ( Queen Sophia Museum), in Madrid. The painting of Guernica is enormous, 11 ft by 25 and half feet. A group of 7 to 8 year old children sat fidgeting on the floor about 10ft from the painting as an elderly Spanish teacher was explaining the history of the painting. Fortunately for me, when the children stood up to move onwards they set off all the alarms in the museum. There was a small black line on the floor denoting a security beam invisible to the child. It had been my intention to have a closer look at the painting when the children had moved on. My journey to Guernica taught me a great deal about Spain that it is not all sun, sea, sangria and siesta. There has been a great deal of suffering in the past but out of that past the people of Guernica have turned their towns adversity into a town prompting the principals of International peace and culture throughout the world.

The Journey to Gernica Occasionally in life you come across something that sends you on a journey. As a teenager I discovered Picasso’s disturbing painting called Gernica. If the black and white painting of dismembered bodies, a bull, a horse in agony, a woman holding a dead child, a female figure entrapped in fire were not enough to question what was going on in the picture the strange name called for investigation. After a bit of groundwork I discovered that Gernica, (Gernika in Basque region of Spain), was carpet bombed by the German and Italian Air force during the Spanish Civil War on the orders of General Franco on Monday, April 2th in 1937. It was one of the first instances of carpet bombing civilians, mainly women and children in this case, to terrorise the Basques into submission. Gernica is the epicentre of the Basque culture. Castilian Kings swore to uphold the Basque laws by the famous Oak tree and the General Basque Assemblies were also held in the same place. When the bombs fell it was Market Day in the centre of Guernica. People had travelled in from the surrounding villages to buy their local produce in the Market. Three quarters of the town was obliterated and the rest damaged except an Arms factory, The Assembly House and the Oak Tree. Picasso outraged at the devastation of Guernica started his painting. The picture expresses violence, cruelty and denounces the horrors of war. It was completed within 2 months, displayed around the world and brought to the attention the tragedy’s of the Spanish Civil War. A few years ago I read Dave Bolings very moving book called Gernica, the story of the events of leading up to

And now Father Coles when you know they are coming Please, please save me a pew Cheryl Harris

Oh what a night Three cheers for Father Coles For putting the Mynx Band gig The acoustics were just wonderful In Saint Mary’s Church so big

Our Lads

And three cheers for the Mynx Band Cause they were just fabulous They really worked so very hard To entertain us. The brass brothers were just fantastic Guitarists, Drummer and Keyboards too And the male singer ended up on his knees For the sake of me and you That Soul Music it just rang out It rang out loud and clear And after every single song The audience did cheer. The ambiance was magical Every part of that do was good They could have charged much more for the tickets They really really could I am not a churchgoer In fact I’ve never been But I tell you I’m glad I went that night It was the best gig I have seen.

Methinks Findon folk are patriotic In fact I know that this is true Because up at the War Memorial this year There were hundreds not just a few. They go to pay a tribute To all the Finedon men who died Soldiers shot in the trenches Navy boys swallowed by the tide Airmen who flew in their plane And never got to land All these men and boys Who died in those two wars fighting for this land

They attended the same schools as us And lived in houses in this small town There were so many got up in the morning Who didn’t see the sun go down. It’s almost one hundred years since Wold War 1 Too many years for young folk to understand If it hadn’t been for the bravery of these men This small island probably would no longer be called England Cheryl Harris

I think it most appropriate To play soul music in that place I feel God would have approved as well When he saw us all with a smile on our face. I hope that they play there again someday I really, really do

In My Day the ramblings of Hubert James In my day it was about this time of year that the German Market would turn up in Finedon. Now I know what you’re thinking. “Surely you’ve got that wrong, Hubert?” Well no, I haven’t. I know the markets set up before Christmas but what this was, was them stopping on the way home. The stallholders would leave their stuff in place in places like Lincoln over Christmas, then come back in the new year to take it home. On their way, they’d stop off in Finedon. They’d set up their stalls on the Green and hold a sort of January sale – in February. Folk liked it because you could guarantee a bargain. They’d camp out overnight to be first in the queue for a two for one offer on gaudily painted wooden puppets or seventyfive percent off apple strudel or three for two offers on big candles. Although the ones I got ran out of wick half way down. Very annoying, it got on my wick. Not as annoying as the year of the great dachshund invasion. Now in my day the sausage dog was a very popular pet, well known for being affectionate. They fell into the category of licker dogs, always wanting to clean everything but with a tongue which… well you never knew where it had been, and if you did you

wouldn’t want to be licked. Yappy little things. Now one of the market stallholders was a bloke called Boris the Board game Bohemian from Reichanbach. He sold everything from Monopoly to Twister out of great big wicker baskets. He also bred Dachshunds. It was him that caused the Invasion when he had a load of puppies left over from a market in Leicester. He kept them in a barn down Thrapston Road over Christmas but by the time the market set up they were going stir crazy, yapping, licking and forming escape committees. Sure enough they escaped. Finedon was infested with dogs. What a palaver! They were so quick; you could never catch hold of them. You couldn’t walk down the street without tripping over a little brown sausage, and the noise. It drove the town round the twist. Boris had to do something, and he did. At the bottom end of the Green, he rigged up a series of pulleys, slides, lifts and a tall flag pole. At the top of the pole he fixed one of his wicker baskets. He hid round the corner of the Cons and waited. At the bottom of the pole was a bowl of sauerkraut which the puppies loved. When they trotted along barking their heads off, they’d stop to eat. Boris released a huge ball bearing down a ramp and the whole mechanism whirled into action, culminating with the basket dropping and trapping the screaming puppies. Boris managed to capture the lot and pack them back off to the continent. Peace at last, and we never again heard the chilling; Sound of the Basket Fill. 11


Bishop Donald writes Waiting with God

February … the days are lengthening and the nights shortening, but it can still feel like winter. The early flowers are out, but they close up in the afternoon preparing for the dark and the frost. At the beginning of the month Candlemas (the Presentation of Christ in the Temple) ends the forty day Christmas/Epiphany Season and leads us towards Lent. Later on Ash Wednesday begins our journey towards the cross. February this year also sees the 60th anniversary of our Queen’s Accession to the throne; a significant meeting of the General Synod as it begins to look at the details of how women bishops could change our Church and how we could provide for those uncomfortable with this; the beginning of Gordon Steele’s ministry as Archdeacon of Oakham; and who knows what else on our local, national and world stages? This may be the shortest month, but it is action-packed. Reminders of the past and pointers to the future. A world of

uncertainty, but with the assurance of God’s abundant provision and his trustworthy promises. The excitement of Christmas is over, the pain of the passion looms on the horizon, but beyond it the stunning and transforming joy of Easter. February may be busy but it is a month of waiting, of preparation. Noting the Queen’s anniversary but waiting for the big celebrations in the summer; working on the details of the changes women bishops will bring to the church, but no final vote yet (that may well be this summer too); remembering that Christ’s death and resurrection are at the heart of our life and faith, but keeping the great passion and Easter story on hold for a little longer. Waiting is good for us. The great national and international debt crisis would be nothing like as bad if we could have retained the habit of saving up for things and enjoying them when we could afford them, instead of buying them on credit as soon as we are attracted by them (I’m not minimising the blame of those who offered credit to those who couldn’t afford it, but it does take two to tango). And spiritual waiting, waiting on God, moving forwards day by day with him, feeling and sensing each day the troubles of life together with the thrill of his presence, knowing that with Christ the best is yet to be: that is February. With best wishes

Around the diocese Street Pastors making a difference

The Street Pastor teams set up in several towns in the diocese over the past two years are out and about on most Saturday nights, but especially so over the Christmas and New Year period. In Corby the scheme has a rota of 31 trained Pastors drawn from many church denominations in the town. Since they started their patrols in July 2010, the Police have noticed a significant drop in the number of alcohol related incidents in Corby village (where most of the pubs and clubs are). Indeed they have asked the Pastors to start sending a team elsewhere in the town on Saturday nights so see if they can have the same beneficial effect. “We have the ability to infiltrate areas where the authority figures like the Police may spark aggression. That is

because we are non judgmental and will give time and love to anyone,” said Fiona Covington, one of Northampton’s Street Pastors. “Jesus commanded that we should go out and spread the good news. In this day and age actions speak louder than words and I feel that this is my way of spreading the word through action.” All Street Pastors are trained not to preach but “to help, to care and to listen.” “We feel so encouraged by the people of Corby,” says Fiona Anderson. “We are starting to see the same faces and people come up to us and continue conversations where they left off last time they saw us. They want to be listened to.” In Kettering, where there are 34 Street Pastors from 16 churches, this was their first festive season. Coordinator Fiona de Boltz says the streets were crowded but had a positive and good natured spirit. Anyone interested in training as a Street Pastor, offering prayer support during their patrols, or making a donation towards training and equipment costs (to the local branch) will find contacts and information at www.streetpastors.org.uk .

Around the diocese February welcome for new Archdeacon of Oakham Canon Gordon Steele is to be welcomed as the new Archdeacon of Oakham at a service at Peterborough Cathedral on Saturday 25 February, at 11am. All are welcome to the service. In addition to taking up the traditional role of an Archdeacon in supporting clergy and churchwardens in the northern half of the diocese, Gordon will also have spiritual oversight of financial matters across the diocese. Canon Steele has been Vicar of St John’s in Peterborough city centre since 2001. Here he has overseen a £280,000 development project and collaborated with the multi-million pound regeneration of Peterborough city centre, setting up a Community Interest Company so that the church is integrated into the public realm and used more as a community resource. Prior to his time in Peterborough Gordon was Vicar of St Alban the Martyr in Northampton. Previously he served in parishes in Middlesex in the Diocese of London.

Building theme for Bishop’s Bible Day 2012 Following the success of last year’s event, Bishop Donald will be leading another Bible Day in 2012. It will take place on Saturday 17 March, at Northampton High School, and the theme is “I will build my church.” The Bible Day is open to anyone who uses the Bible in any way in their ministry, whether that is in the church, in school, at work, in the community, in the home or else-where. It is also a time for worship and for meeting up with friends, old and new, from across the diocese. Alongside the main teaching sessions led by Bishop Donald, there will be a range of workshops to choose from, all designed to help deepen our faith and equip us to help others to connect with the Bible.
