Pershore Jubilee Carnival 2012


he Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in style at this year’s Pershore Carnival, with a lively, variegated and colourful procession including the Carnival King & Queen and their Footman and Lady in Waiting, all royally dressed for the occasion and leading the pageant in their Pirate Ship.

Winding its way from Pershore Town Football Club, through the packed streets to the Abbey Grounds, the procession was a mix of walking entries, hand drawn or walking wheels and motorised floats, all applauded by the large crowd of onlookers lining the route.

commended awards. Jonty & Farrell Smith won an award for their Fire Engine walking wheels float, and Hopscotch Pre-School won the award for best walking entry. A stunning fireworks display provided a right royal finale to a magnificent Carnival Day.

Pershore Town Crier, Robert Speight, was resplendent in his blue regalia and the Jubilee theme was evident throughout the crowd, procession and floats.

Benefitting from generous donations from the public and money raised from the Carnival, are the Pershore Paddlers, an organisation providing specialised facilities to encourage and support swimmers with disabilities at the Leisure Centre. Also supported is the Avondale Special Needs Playgroup which is based in Evesham and is the nearest facility for any children in Pershore with special needs. Both are very worthy causes.

The Abbey grounds were transformed with the various attractions, sideshows and stalls. The St Andrews Pipe Band provided musical entertainment while Evesham Hospital Radio hosted the prize giving for best floats and fancy dress. The Mayor of Pershore, Charles Tucker, presented prizes to the Watts family for the best motorised float and best overall entry, with Pershore RNA and Holy Redeemer First School floats gaining highly

Evesham Balloon Fiesta June 2012


nd so came the weekend of the long awaited Evesham Balloon Fiesta, only to be thwarted by the unpredictable British weather! The Hot Air Balloons had to be withdrawn because of the recent rain and winds. Winds in excess of 30mph forecast for the weekend meant that the Organisers were forced to drop the Hot Air Balloons from the Fiesta so unfortunately not even a glimpse of the Evening Glow was visible.

That said, entertainment was still to be found in abundance on the banks of the River Avon with some colourful Stunt Kite Flying demonstrations, an array of classic cars on16display (including two models that the The Villager

author used to drive himself, in his youth ...... many years ago!). There was a very popular climbing wall - even as the sun was setting, an assortment of fairground rides, food and drink, and a bar, as well as merchandise stalls and live music from the Bands performing on stage. These included SJS, The Change, The Crazy 88’s, The Road Hogs, Fifteen English Pounds and Boogie Street. The Saturday evening music was rounded off in style by Ready, Steady Go with some excellent 60's music, nostalgic covers of the Beatles, Manfred Mann, the Rolling Stones and a host of others as a prelude to the extended grand fireworks finale set to some very British classical favourites. The fireworks were both colourful (Red, White & Blue even) and spectacular, rising majestically into the, now, still evening air to the strains of Land of Hope & Glory, God Save the Queen and the cheers of the large crowd that had assembled throughout the day.

Andy Train : Olympic Canoeist


by Marion Freeman

recently met Andy Train from Fladbury who, with his brother Steve, represented Great Britain in five successive Olympics from 1984 to 2000, competing in the canoe pairs. Their first Olympics was at Los Angeles in 1984 followed by Seoul, in 1988, Barcelona in 1992, Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in the year 2000. Andy's first love was athletics, and even at an early age he had his eye on the Olympics. He recalled how a teacher had asked his future plans. With no hesitation he replied it was to work hard, achieve academic qualifications, go to university, then go on the dole, which at the time seemed to him the only way he’d be able to devote his time fully to sport! His interest in canoeing began when the family spent many happy hours paddling on canals, where they were then living in Pelsall in Staffordshire. Moving to Fladbury in the early 1970’s and having the River Avon on their doorstep his interest canoeing increased, gradually superseding his interest in athletics. One day Andy’s father, David Train, was asked by the local rector, Michael Goode, to take part in a project he was considering. Concerned that the youngsters of the village had little to do in their spare time, he proposed interesting them in various activities. His idea was to enlist the help of locals known to have a love of such pursuits as crafts, swimming, and of course, canoeing. Mr Train, who was the Managing Director of a Birmingham firm at a particularly difficult time, at first declined, but on further consideration, he agreed and within weeks the Fladbury Paddle Club had been launched. The enthusiasm was boundless and soon the group were entering competitions, later competing in national and international championships. The two brothers concentrated on working as a pair and began to enter senior 18 The Villager

selection classes at international level where they were chosen to represent the country at World Championships in 1981. This took place in Britain but subsequent competitions took them to many different countries as they competed each year from 1981 until 2001. Due to their success they were chosen to compete in the Olympics. Andy’s early dream had come to fruition, albeit in a different sport. With their father coaching them, Andy and his brother trained twice a day, six days a week. In the main this took place locally on the Avon as the waters there were ideal for flat water canoeing, being relatively deep, slow moving and sheltered most of the time. In the early days funding was difficult making it imperative that training took place alongside any normal jobs. Later, when more Eastern European countries began to take part in the Olympics, supported by their Governments, the situation in Britain began to change. Some funding became available to British competitors through the Sports Aid Foundation, and more recently, Lottery Funding has become more widely available. The opening up of the Eastern European countries widened the prospect of competition, with various countries training together, the canoe groups working closely with Hungary and East Germany. At the Olymics, both rowing and canoeing take place on the same site, so it is usually during the second week of the Games that the course becomes available to the latter. July 2012

As a result, canoeing competitors generally arrive after the opening ceremony has taken place. This meant that Andy only attended one of these exciting events, so it was therefore a big thrill when Andy attended the Seoul Olympics from the beginning and took part in the parade around the stadium to the enthusiastic cheering of the excited crowds. Assembling well in advance, the groups of competitors lined up outside in alphabetical order awaiting their call to enter. Although this entailed several hours of waiting, it was a good-hearted, excited group of competitors that eventually entered the arena. Whilst Andy seemed somewhat reluctant to talk of his feelings at the time, he did say it was a very strange and rather humbling thought that at that moment the eyes of the world were on the arena, watching the opening ceremony.

Once competitions were underway there was quite a bit of time-killing, as there would often be days between one race and the next. The facilities afforded at the Olympic village were always second to none, including a worldwide selection of food and an opportunity to meet people from a host of different nations, making the whole experience exciting and memorable. There was great camaraderie between different nationalities participating July 2012

in the same events, and although rivalry was strong, each competitor had a real appreciation of other’s prowess with respect for every individual. With the coming of the Olympic Games to London this year, emphasis is very much on the legacy to be left once they are over, and Andy is rightly proud of the legacy that he and his family have been able to leave. On his retirement, his father began working on an idea to produce canoes suited to youngsters of all abilities. By securing two canoes together (similar to a catamaran) a really stable boat was achieved which enables folk of all abilities to work as a team. Based on the idea of the Bell Curve, a concept emphasising the premise that by working together each person is able to gain expertise according to their own ability, David Train introduced the concept of what he called the Bell Boat. This idea has captured the imagination both at home and abroad, and there are now over 240 Bell Boats in use by activity centres, youth groups and schools. To celebrate the 2012 London Olympics Andy, now a teacher at The Vale of Evesham School, came up with the idea of holding a Bell Boat Olympic Relay. The relay began with groups of school children from the Aylesbury area, moved up the Grand Union Canal into Birmingham, back to Kidderminster, Hagley, Stourport, Tewkesbury, Pershore and Eveshan where a Regatta with take place on 25th June. A Schools Regatta will also take place on 30th June in Pershore, both events sponsored by the Market Towns Initiative. In all over 2,250 children of all abilities, from more than 100 Worcestershire schools will take part in the Bell Boat relay. A wonderful legacy indeed! 19 The Villager

General Tips With all the recent rain we've had, make sure you prevent those well-watered weeds from taking over. It’s also time to get started on those unwieldy hedges; removing the worst of the spring growth now will save you time in the autumn. Geraniums and other early flowering perennials can be cut back now and divided if necessary. This is also the ideal time to plant, knowing the roots will be going into moist soil.

Preparation If the weather changes and it becomes hot and dry, don't forget to leave water out for any wildlife in your garden. Start harvesting seed from annuals and perennials, and sow seeds for next year biennials such as sweet-williams, pansies and wallflowers.

Pruning This is now a good time to summer prune your wisteria, and trim any conifer hedges, remembering to take some cuttings.

Planting Finish planting summer bedding plants, and get started on planting autumn flowering bulbs.

Greenhouse Remember to keep your greenhouse well ventilated at all times, and damp it down regularly. In hot weather make sure


The Villager

July in the Garden you provide plenty of shade for delicate plants.

Lawns Give your lawn a liquid feed, and continue to mow it and trim the edges regularly.

Fruit & Veg Now is the time to start picking currents and raspberries as they ripen. Herbs are now ready to be harvested for drying, and if you've planted them, its time to lift garlic, onions and new potatoes. Remember to harvest your vegetables regularly. Continue to sow salad crops on a regularly basis to keep you supplied, and if you like them now is the time to sow spring cabbages, ready for harvesting from February onwards.

Maintenance Even though we've had plenty of rain recently, make sure you water and feed plants in hanging baskets and containers. Dead head flowers regularly to encourage a second flush of flowers. Watch for signs of pests and diseases so that they don’t get to out of control. If any of your plants have diseased leaves remove these and burn them. Keep pond plants under control as some have a tendency to take over.

The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Paul Papandreou feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people

money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’ Cloudy2Clear service the Malvern, Worcester & Hereford areas and Paul is finding that his approach is a major

factor in his success. ‘The truth is that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family of people

I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Paul a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

The Spotted What!? When a conservation and wildlife adviser called John Clarke put a small and unobtrusive advertisement in a selection of parish magazines, the response was remarkable . . . John writes with knowledge, warmth and humour. Birdwatchers will love this book. John's book is a tribute to the Spotted Flycatcher and may well help to halt its decline. He is The Flycatcher Man.

Why? Why? Why? Why is it that we put man on the moon before we ďŹ gured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Can you cry under water? Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box? Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

What disease did cured ham actually have? Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing? Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV? Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in telescopes to look at things on the ground?

Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural? Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway!

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto is on all fours? They're both dogs! Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons? If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets? Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are nearly dead?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes? Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufďŹ cient funds' when they know there is not enough money?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

Do the "Alphabet" song and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" have the same tune? 26

offer many pre-loved (second-hand) items. These pre-loved items have all been carefully checked, freshly laundered and packaged before selling in our shop. All are in excellent condition, and most are nearly new. We have found that offering pre-owned items allows our customers to afford more, as these items are a fraction of the price they are when new . . . . plus we are recycling, which is even better! It is hard being on a budget especially if you are expecting or already have a family, which is why we have found that this option is the ideal solution. Our new items are listed as 'Brand New'! All descriptions are fully detailed and we offer you the best price possible, many being cheaper than the original retail price, again saving you money! We are constantly adding new stock, so it’s good to visit our website on a regular basis.
