National Grid lights up lesson time! National Grid has been helping to teach youngsters at St Mary’s Primary School in Hadleigh some valuable electricity and safety lessons. National Grid’s East Anglia overhead line refurbishment project helped give pupils some fantastic hands-on experience with an amazing electricity extravaganza show presented by Professor Kaos. Children were amazed and entertained by fantastic static electricity stunts including experiments with a van der graaf generator, plasma balls and becoming human light bulbs and pylons. The show also included information about the importance of safety on construction sites and gave children the opportunity to try on protective clothing, safety goggles and helmets. Matthew Coombs, Deputy Headteacher said: “We’d like to thank National Grid for such an electrifying show. Because the children were involved in the experiments they were able to see for themselves the wonder of electricity in a fun way. This show was exciting for children and teachers alike, we’ve definitely all learned something today!” Barry Cullimore, Senior Land Officer for National Grid said: “It was great to work with the children and help show them how exciting and interesting electricity can be. We hope that the children understand the important work that National Grid do to keep everyone’s lights on and televisions working!

There’s also a serious message behind the fun and that is to show the dangers of working with and around electricity. It was good to see so many of the children getting the answers right and trying on the safety clothing and equipment.” The electricity extravaganza shows are part of National Grid’s initiative aimed at increasing children’s interest in energy and is being offered to primary schools between Bramford in Suffolk and Twinstead in Essex. The schools hosted the show as they close to an overhead electricity line that has just been rewired as part of the company’s programme of electricity network reinforcement across East Anglia.

Local Husband and Wife Team complete Marathon in aid of Breast Cancer Care Victoria and Carl Beswick completed the 2013 Virgin London Marathon with impressive times of 3hrs 55mins and 3hrs 17mins, raising at the last count, an impressive £4378 for Breast Cancer Care, a charity both close to their hearts. Breast Cancer Care is a fantastic charity that provides support for anyone that is affected by breast cancer. They bring people together; provide information and support and campaign for improved standards of care. In the Victoria & Carl Beswick at the end of the 26.2 miles! UK alone, 55,000 women and nearly 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, which means that every 10 minutes someone receives the devastating news that they have breast cancer. Victoria’s mum, Yvette Pearce from Semer was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in November 2011. Nearly a year and a half after her diagnosis, after going through both chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she is well on the way to recovery. Donations to this charity can be made via:

Help for Heroes at the Hadleigh Show


Hadleigh Army Cadet Force and The Porch Project (St Mary’s Church) combined to raise £650 for the Help For Heroes charity, under the supervision of Staff/Sgt L Cramsey and Craig Hutton (St Mary’s) The sponsors for this to happen were A.K Services (Suffolk) Ltd, of Ramsey Road and Hadleigh Tyre Services of Calais Street. Hadleigh Thrift Shop (Mrs Boyd) funded the hi-vis vests for The Porch Project and the refreshments. On behalf of the Help For Heroes I am most grateful to all of the above, especially to Hadleigh Farmers in affording local youth the chance to show that they can contribute to the community when called upon. Many thanks to all concerned, Fred Breyer

The WI at the 2013 Hadleigh Show Members of local WIs were delighted to welcome so many visitors to their tent at the 2013 Hadleigh May Show. Hadleigh Evening WI was joined by Polstead, Leavenheath and Bures WIs who were all kept very busy selling goods and produce. Despite the hard work the helpers enjoyed the day and the opportunity to meet up with old friends. Polstead’s president Margaret Walker was pleased their cakes and preserves had been so popular. As well as cakes and savouries Bures WI members had made 141 jars of preserves that proved very popular. Leavenheath WI ran a nearly new stall selling items that had been donated by friends and family. Long standing member Doreen Atkins said they will be making a donation towards the cost of the stained glass window that is currently being installed over the front porch of Leavenheath church. In addition to their stall selling savouries cakes and preserves Hadleigh. Evening WI ran a tombola. Many generous people had donated the prizes including Stuart Morris who gave several textile products from his local factory. Ann Porter provided a lucky dip for children. This month Hadleigh Evening joined Elmsett WI to debate the National resolution on the preservation of the High Streets. This will be the subject of national debate at the WIs national meeting in Cardiff on 1 June. Next month Hadleigh Evening WI will meet on 18th June in the Seminar suite above Hadleigh library. Carlen Powell from the British Trust for Ornithology will talk about the Garden Bird watch Scheme. Visitors and new members are welcome Philippa Carruthers 01473 823057

Howard on top of The Shard Hello my faithful flock as we head into June. I felt the glimpses of some better weather as I joined over 200 other classic cars on a run from Kelvedon to the Keep at Castle Hedingham which used to be the seat of the de Vere family. I forsook the services of my chauffeurs Frank and Christof and ventured to Gatwick by train to meet a friend who was returning from visiting some continental types in Europe. As I watched the passengers passing through arrivals, I was struck as to how mundane the whole business of air travel has become. The passengers were largely in their mid 20s, dragging the inevitable little case on wheels and dressed as I would should I be spending a little time with my gardener out in the grounds of the Gibbons’ residence. I had an exciting visit to London. Christof my chauffeur brought round my shiny black car and we departed at 6 in the evening for The Shard. Within a couple of hours I was being greeted at the front door of The Shard and shot up its 1016 feet in two successive lifts at 6 metres a second. The views that awaited me on the 72nd floor as I peered out from some of the 11,000 glass panels in the building were fantastic; London was like a toy town laid out before me at all points North, South, West and East. There was HMS Belfast, London Bridge, St Paul’s, the London Eye and so. As the day faded, the twinkling lights of London emerged and I enjoyed the view for over two hours. The tallest building in the world is presently Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is nearly three times as high as The Shard. Christof then drove me to the West End where I listened to some up and coming singers at the Show Off Piano Bar. As I purred back through Hadleigh High Street, you had all been asleep for quite some hours. We have been exceedingly busy advising clients upon the sale and purchase of properties. On a purchase, the results of our enquiries and investigations culminate in a report and accompanying bible of the documents involved. Clients should then be placed to sign their contracts in readiness for the big day. One day you may wish that you had a Lasting Power of Attorney in place: give us a call. News reaches me of a Talents and Interests Weekend at St Mary’s Church Hadleigh on 22/23 June. Local exhibitors will be demonstrating their skills. Telephone Joyce Willis 01473 823165 for details.

The Hadleigh Historian – Issue 16 (June-July 2013)


In the shops at the beginning of June, the front cover features The Hadleigh Historian No.2 Duke Street, a house whose history can be traced back to the Issue 16 June - July 2013 Price ÂŁ3 15th century. Also from that time, the significance of the Easter sepulchre as the tomb of William Pykenham (rector 1469-1497) is explored. Pykenham is wellknown in Hadleigh as builder of the Deanery Tower and as founder of almshouses in George Street. However, when he stated in his will that he wanted to be buried without riches or abundance, what exactly did his executors provide for him? The Hadleigh Historian welcomes Roger Kennell to its pages with an article investigating ‘A mystery factory in Angel Street’. William Pretty & Son was not known for having more than one establishment in a town, so with a factory elsewhere in Hadleigh, Roger looks at development of the company, changes in society during the early 20th century together with other whys and wherefores when investigating this enigma. Margaret Jeffery and Jean Styles of Hadleigh Local Studies Workshop return with another tale of Victorian violence in ‘Attempted murder at the Co-op’. The series ‘From the British School log book’ (1871-1899) continues with reasons for pupil absence including ‘trifling excuses’, bad weather, field work on local farms and contagious diseases. Absenteeism not only frustrated headmasters Charles Nobbs, Tobias James, Henry Causton and Edwin Ringer in their work but also reduced finances of the school as grants depended upon regular attendance of pupils and their success in examinations.

Rotary Review ROTARY BURLTON CUP: The winner of the Trophy this year is Tom Cowley - Congratulations Tom!! The cup, named in honour of Rotarian Alan Burlton Deceased, is awarded annually at Hadleigh High School for excellence in Business Studies. Once again, well done Tom! SPEAKERS: Richard Toone from RSPB spoke about the recently developed wildlife garden at Flatford. Situated close to the teashop and car park, the land had becomea wilderness over the years but the RSPB has now created a garden which encourages visitors to become more closely involved with nature.There are shrubberies, woodland, wildflower meadows as well as a kitchen garden, orchard and a teaching garden bringing in all forms of wildlife from birds to bugs.You may find out about many aspects of gardening especially with a view to helping widlife thrive whilst there are also many activities for children. The garden is open from April to October 10.30am to 16.30pm. Belinda White, daughter of Rotarian Mike Sands and Programme Manager for TCHC in Suffolk explained the work carried out by her Company. It is a private company, funded by the Skills Funding Agency and the European Social Fund, providing skills support for redundant and other unemployed people. For redundancy help referrals are made by Companies, Job Centre Plus whilst she also checks local news for potential redundancy situations. Once redundancy is identified a one to one interview is offered to ascertain the individual requirements which maybe further training, retraining or self employment advice. Funds are available to finance this and support is provided throughout the process to give the best chance of obtaining new work. Similar help is available to the wider unemployed to enhance the prospects of being reemployed. During the past 12 months 65% of referrals have found work within 6 months of redundancy. More information may be found at your local job centre or website FUTURE PROGRAMME: June 6 Business Meeting, June 13 Annual Visit of Rotary District Governor, June 20 Ms C Gibson Head of Hadleigh High School, June 27 Club Assembly For all information relating to this Club please visit Rotary Club of Hadleigh website or ring Rotarian Alan Williams Tel 01473 830229

Fleece Jazz at Stoke by Nayland – not just Jazz! Fleece Jazz is now in its 21st year. The weekly live music sessions began in The Fleece, Boxford, when the Chelsworth Peacock ceased staging gigs, and three of the founding committee are still very active. It has always been unfunded and non-profit making and, although referred to as a club, has no formal membership, or fees, but is open to all. It moved from The Fleece, following licensee changes, and after a brief stay in Kersey, moved to Stoke by Nayland Hotel and Golf Kyle Eastwood Club in July 2009, where it continues to enjoy excellent facilities, catering and flexibility. Because of its international reputation, the Fleece name was retained, and Fleece Jazz received the prestigious Parliamentary Jazz Award for best venue in 2009. The aim of Fleece Jazz is to offer music (usually improvised) which ranges from World Music, through Latin, Soul, Blues and Modern Jazz, often with classical crossovers, They feature some of the best musicians in the world. Many of the performers have parallel careers as educators and session musicians, some playing with THE most popular recording stars. Recently seen trumpeter, Graeme Flowers, for example, has played with Kyle Eastwood, Jamie Cullum, Michael Bublé, Mari Wilson Charlotte Church, Lemar, Quincy Jones, Shakira, Duran Duran, James Morrison, Just Jack, Jamelia, Tony Hadley, Will Young, Lulu, Emma Bunton, Jools Holland, Midge Ure, Mica Paris and Ronan Keating. Get the idea? This June’s programme is typically varied: a Swiss guitarist, Nicolas Meier, is joined by an Israeli drummer, a Spanish percussionist, a locally born pianist and Nigel Kennedy’s favourite violinist to perform music inspired by Morocco and Spain. World Music indeed, and indeed world class. This is followed by sophisticated Renato d’Aiello vocal cabaret from the wonderfully talented singer and performer, still remembered for her beehive hair-do, Mari Wilson, “The Neasden Queen of Soul” with shades of Julie London. Then in total contrast there is the chance to dance (or just sit and listen) to a delightful big band, Ray Gelato’s Giants. Led by Italian born Ray, the band recently featured in the Catherine Zeta Jones hit movie “No Reservations”. June ends with two of the finest musicians around: David Newton on piano and saxophonist-cum-stand up comic Alan Barnes, who together guarantee an evening of great music and great good humour. July sees an up and coming young vocalist, Zoe Francis, who worked in Manhattan, trained as a dancer, and then started singing in the clubs of New York, including Greenwich Village, before returning to London via Bristol to further her career. And now, finally, she makes Suffolk. Very differently on 12th July there is a tribute to the great American drummer Elvin Jones, with five stalwarts of British Jazz: saxophonists Alan Skidmore (ex John Mayall, Ronnie Scott, Soft Machine, Nice, Curved Air etc) and Peter King (ex Johnny Dankworth, Maynard Fergusson, Tubby Hayes, Stan Tracey etc), with master Bop pianist Steve Melling, Sir John Dankworth’s son Alec on bass, and Miles, Tony Levin’s son, on drums. Surely something for everyone! For a limited period Fleece Jazz are offering £5 off per ticket to readers of this magazine. (student tickets, half reduced price) please see the advert for details.

Plant Parts has been trading for 22 years specialising in the supply of spare parts for construction machinery, they have once again been given the award in the category for International Trade. The business began trading in 1991 and quickly found its niche supplying parts for Komatsu construction equipment and repairing excavator final drives.

The company continues to invest in product and customer support IT systems enabling it to provide an industry leading service to customers and the company puts much of its award winning achievement down to the accessibility of product information, “Many of our customers call us for parts in a breakdown situation and they need to know “when can I have it and how much?” said Mr Robert Finch, IT Director at Plant Parts. “We have equipped our sales and support staff with the tools to answer those questions at once. We believe good customer service is the key to success.” Plant Parts has also enlarged its warehouse to accommodate an everexpanding product range. “We have to move with the times”, Mr Richard Finch, Managing Director said, “it is imperative that we continually monitor our enquiries to be sure we stock current model parts in demand from our customers”.

Tim Allen Windows e a rs of tra di ng y 5 1 g n i t a r b Ce le Kersey Mill Newsletter After many hours of adjusting, lightly thumping and cajoling the waterwheel at the mill has once again turned after nearly seventy years stuck in its frame and silting up. Brave George went into one of the narrowest pits on site and excavated buckets of silt by hand that allowed the rest of the volunteer team to disconnect the pit wheel and wallower from the rest of the drive units. This allowed the water wheel to then be worked on and released George braving the pit from the bearing that had been inserted back to front thus stopping the wheel from moving. Perhaps this was a deliberate way of keeping the wheel stable and fixed until now by the previous miller as a safety tool – we may never know. Once the bearing was turned round and fitted to the drive shaft Steve, Paul Cuthbert and George were the first persons in all those years to make the wheel turn. What a sight – a great cheer went up and the wheel slowly yet surely rotated with the flow of the water and a little help from the gang. The tradesmen working on the house had by The Wallower in mid frame of photograph now downed tools and gathered to witness the sight. In turn the party of volunteers had a go at turning the wheel much to their delight. It was a milestone in the restoration of the mill and all the workings that will go on alongside the restoration of the mill building. Whilst George was digging out what seemed to be endless buckets of silt from around the pit wheel he found a number of artefacts including the windless for engaging the wallower and the drive shaft, a rowlock, some pieces of china, shards of a Delft tile with a sailing ship design, parts of an older mill gearing and some bones. Given the story of the young boy Leech who Some of the artefacts from the pit died in the pit wheel cogs there was worry it could have been the missing parts of the poor boy. Thankfully the bones turned out to be no more than a long forgotten meal consumed by the workers at the mill before it closed down. The water feed channel is next to be cleaned up and repaired ready for the huge iron plate that focuses the flow of the water directly to the blades thus improving the efficiency by 30%. Thanks to the work of the Frenchman Poncelet in 1838 that we have this style of water delivery that is ideal for the slower flowing rivers on East Anglia. Many of the finds will be on show in the exhibition area that will be created for the open day on June 30th between 10am and 6pm with the theme being “Anything Olde “and we would like to encourage visitors to bring anything old, whether they have an old vehicle, an old relic or even an old relative - bring them along as there will be a prize for best on show. Admission is free with donations most welcome towards the mill restoration. Should you have any memories or photographs of the mill please get in touch as many of you have done thus far. All will go into the archive for generations to study in years to come. Contact Allan at Thank you for your on-going support for the project. Allan Scott-Davies

Poets Corner What is Love? What is Love, is it the butterflies in your tummy, when they look at you. Or the permanent smile upon your lips, mirrored in their face too. The feeling that you cannot explain. Anticipation to see them again. Maybe it is, the I know you inside out, comfortable, closeness of older age. A worn in togetherness, of the hand holding stage. No less beautiful, than in younger times. Very sweet, with affection and a few more aches and lines. Love is a blessing and a joy, so grab it tight and enjoy the ride. With your chosen one, right by your side By Sue A Williamston 12

Community Poets Throughout the school there has been a rush to write poetry this month as pupils have prepared for the ‘Young Writers’ poetry competition. Children throughout Key stages 1 and 2 have taken part, and each child entered will receive a free bookmark. Selected children will have their work published in an anthology of poetry – we hope that some of our pupils’ work will be included. Even better, there is a prize of £1000 in book tokens for the winning school. Watch this space! Did you smell the delicious curry? Children in Year 4 had a great day last week when they made vegetable curry, using typical vegetables from the area of India they had been studying. It was a cross curricular day whereby children also completed ‘curry maths’ (ratio problems associated with making curry) and fruit tasting - describing the flavours of ‘new’ fruits they may not have encountered before. It is amazing how much children can eat when they are offered free food! India Day was a memorable experience for the children – it was great to be off timetable for a day. Wildlife Explorers represent the school Our lunchtime Wildlife Explorers Club, which is run by Mrs Cherrington and Miss O’Neill for Years 1 & 2, have prepared a display on behalf of the school to be judged at the Hadleigh Show. The children meet weekly on Tuesday lunchtimes, going into the school grounds to look for seasonal changes and properties of different organisms (the number of legs, etc.) They also study booklets about wildlife. For their Hadleigh Show exhibit, the children made animals from natural materials and art resources. They then wrote a page about wildlife in the school grounds. There were also photographs of the children exploring the woods. Our Wildlife Explorers encourage wildlife with birdfeeders and bug houses. The school also has a bird box with a camera attached so that they can witness all of the bird activity inside although, unfortunately, no birds chose to nest in it this year. Pond Refurbishment Unfortunately, we have had a lot of problems with the school pond over the years. It often loses all of its water just at the time when creatures would find it of value. However, help is at hand! Volunteers from Lloyds Bank will be giving up their time over the next few weeks to refurbish the pond. All year groups will benefit from their work, and particularly our Wildlife Explorers who will have an additional habitat to study at lunch times! Before and After School Care Hadleigh Community Primary School is delighted that it offers wrap around school care, running before and after school clubs, providing a service to parents from 7.45 a.m. until 6 p.m. Both clubs are highly successful, taking children from the Reception Year through to Year 6. The 8 O’clock Club: Parents and children will get a warm welcome at the 8 O’clock club, which runs from 7.45 a.m. each morning until school time. Mrs Botwright is the Play Leader and is assisted by a team of Play workers. This summer term you will find us all outside in the playground with Mrs Baker helping the older children with football, cricket, rounders and relay races, which seem to be quite popular at present. Mrs Hynard and Mrs Walker will be with the younger children playing ball, tennis, chatting and interacting. Just before we go into school we all get together for the Big Skip and we have all enjoyed a happy fun hour before the start of school. After School Club: As with the 8 O’clock Club the children always get a warm welcome into the After School Club after having a busy day in school. The club is run by the same staff as the 8 o’clock club. The younger children (Reception to Year 4) are collected from class by Mrs Botwright whilst Mrs Hynard and Mrs Baker welcome the older children. The club is available until 6 p.m. We offer drinks and biscuits to all children and a good snack for the children that stay with us until 6.00 p.m. with a variety of healthy food such as crackers, bread, ham, cheese, tuna, vegetables and fruit. We have a wide range of toys, games, arts and crafts for them to enjoy and playing outside when it is fine – which we hope will be frequently over the coming weeks! Joining Hadleigh Community Primary School Would you like to find out more about what we can offer you and your child at Hadleigh Community Primary School? We currently have spaces in the majority of our year groups and our Nursery class starting in September (for those with children born between 1st September 2009 and 31st August 2010). Our Headteacher, Neil Jackson would be delighted to show you around – please ring the school office to book an appointment. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Exciting final line-up confirmed for growing two-day music festival A total of 17 live musical acts will be complemented by a number of other attractions at a popular two day music festival – which is on course to attract a record crowd. Ska legend Neville Staple – who enjoyed a succession of top ten hits in the 1980s as lead singer of The Specials and Fun Boy Three – will headline the Live and Kicking Music Festival being held at the MEL Group Stadium in Sudbury, Suffolk in June. Staple will be supported by some of the UK’s top tribute acts including those to Paul Weller, The Jam, The Who, The Stone Roses, Oasis, The Commitments and Pink. Original acts – covering everything from rock to blues through to funk, indie, pop, reggae and punk – include Zeb Roots, The Mannequins, Old Town Souls, Oblivious, Absolution, Lone Crows, Poesi and Andy Hill. Away from the music there will be a display of vintage scooters which took part in the closing ceremony of the London Olympics 2012 and a two-day beer festival which includes a number of awarding winning real ales. Day two of the festival will include an extensive free children’s village featuring mega-slides, bouncy castles, a children’s entertainer, circus skills, Punch and Judy shows and gladiator duels. Additional acts will be performed by Quay School of Dance and the Woodhall School Djemba Drums. Comperes are BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Stephen Foster and eccentric Suffolk author and entertainer Charlie Haylock. Richard Instance, one of the Live and Kicking organisers, said: “We are so excited by this year’s event, we have a packed programme with something for everyone, it is our best ever line-up and we are looking forward to welcoming the legendary Neville Staple to the event. Tickets are selling fast and there will be a record crowd attending, and we are sure there will be a fantastic atmosphere over the two-days. We have great acts, loads of other attractions and great amenities for the kids so there is really no excuse not to be at Live and Kicking 2013.� Live and Kicking is now in its fourth year and is held over the weekend of June 22 and June 23. Free camping is available. For more information on this year’s festival go to or call the festival hotline on 07974 222 777.

Beaumont News Report – June 2013 Recently Year 6 took part in Crucial Crew, a series of safety workshops organised by the Rotary Club of Sudbury. It is aimed at year 6 as they start to think about moving onto secondary school, at a time in their lifes where they may find themselves in new situations, being more independent but also potentially at more risk. The Year 6 pupils found the workshops, which included work on first aid and online safety to name but a few, very informative and interesting. They followed up the work at Crucial Crew by completing safety related activities in class. Sport is all about the taking part, but sometimes it’s great when you do well! Our recent gymnastics team’s performance was certainly an example of this. A team from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 took part in the Key Steps Gymnastics Competition at Pipers Vale in Ipswich. The competition saw the children demonstrating their skills in a vault, a floor routine and in The winning Key Stage 2 body management exercises. gymnastics team Unfortunately the Key Stage 1 team was a gymnast down and although performed brilliantly were penalised for this. The Key Stage 2 team also performed brilliantly – so brilliantly they came away with a 1st place! This is fantastic considering we are a relatively small school. Not only did the teams do well they also conducted themselves exceptionally well during the competition. Well done to all involved! Another sporting activity our children are involved in is the ‘Chance to Shine’ cricket training. Our Year 4s are participating in weekly sessions funded by the Cricket Foundation and organised by the Hadleigh Cricket Club. The children are thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to improve their cricketing skills with the help of a first class coach. The school gardening club have been really busy this month. The club, who meet once a week after school, visited the vegetable section at Morrisons supermarket where they learnt about the origins of the fruit and vegetables on offer. They were given a guided tour of the shop and came away with a better understanding of the range of fruit and vegetables on offer and where our food comes from. The club have also been working hard on their allotment space in Hadleigh tending their crops for this year, as well using the visit for an excuse for a picnic! The club have also been successful in the Suffolk Farmer’s competition this year getting through to the final stage of the competition with their life-sized black sheep! The children have visited St. Mary’s church several times this month. Two of the classes visited the annual Art exhibition put on at the church. The children were really impressed by the range and quality of the Art on display and found it an inspiration for their own artistic work back in school. Dragonflies class also visit the church as part of their work on ‘Places of Worship’ in RE. Our thanks go to Reverend Thrower for talking to the children about the church and the range of Christian signs and symbols on display.

THE HADLEIGH SOCIETY Caring about Hadleigh, yesterday, today and tomorrow The Brett Works/Allotment site in 13th & 14th century Hadleigh In the 13th and 14th centuries the Brett Works/Allotment/proposed Tesco site was held by The Manor of Hadleigh. This manor was, by royal decree, the chief manor (and the largest) within the Hadleigh area. During the 13th and 14th centuries the Lords of the Manor of Hadleigh were the Prior and Convent (the community of monks) of The Church of Christ of Canterbury i.e. the priory or monastery of Canterbury Cathedral. Manorial documents have revealed the demesne of Hadleigh Manor comprised arable, woodland, pasture and meadow lands. Additionally there were two commons and a great deal of tenanted land held by free and customary (un-free) tenants. According to the Hadleigh Society President (John Bloomfield) the 13th century manor house or headquarters of this relatively large manor stood on the site of today’s Hadleigh Hall although the medieval enclosure was considerably larger than today’s at around 4 acres from the river to the king’s highway (current High Street). The day to day management of this manor, or what was a largish thriving farm, was undertaken by 3 reeves until the 14th century when serjeants assumed the role; the latter were paid quite handsomely but the reeves received no salary although they were excused labour services. Several days a week the many customary tenants undertook the necessary farm and maintenance work as part of their compulsory labour services i.e. ploughing, digging, reaping, carting etc. Of course they also had to pay money rent and regularly attend court. Enclosing the Hadleigh 4 acre manorial compound with its medieval manor house, were walls of wattle and daub; the height of these walls is unknown but we do read they most prestigiously had tiled roofs with ridged tiles along the centre. There were 3 gates; the great gate possibly opening onto what is now Pound Lane, the second gate onto the churchyard north of St Mary’s Church and the third onto the area where the Brett Works/allotments are today. All three gates had tiled and crested roofs. Within the manorial enclosure was a courtyard, seemingly on the northern side of the hall. The garden with its pond was at the rear of the house as was the detached kitchen which was completely rebuilt and refurbished in 1334; a free-standing chapel was close by the pound in front of the manor house. Several farm buildings were present on the site – these included 5 barns, a pig-sty, cattle shed, cart-house, hen house and 2 stables – one for visitors’ palfreys and the other presumably for the work horses. The dovecote was a privilege at that time only accorded to manorial lords. Every one of these buildings, even the hen and pig houses, significantly had tiled roofs with ridge tiles. The pound, within the manorial enclosure at the end of what is now Pound Lane, provided a secure lock-up for stray beasts or animals/chattels impounded when folks could not pay court fines. At the very back of this complex jutting out northwards, where the Brett Works are today, was a sizeable animal pasture which bordered on to the river. Here could graze the manor sheep, cows, oxen, cart horses or draught horses; the pigs and various types of poultry would more likely be kept within the enclosure. Also to the north of the manorial enclosure (on the proposed Tesco site) was the 4 acre Tyefield, used in medieval times as a pasture; it was let by the manor for 8s per annum. Additionally in this area, and likewise held by the manor, were several plots of land leased to various dyers; the first mention of this is in 1273-41 when Dyers William, John and Vincent, Reginald Fyport and Adam Wace were amongst those renting. Furthermore along the river bank of this area were dye houses, built, rented out and maintained by Hadleigh manor, Amongst the lessees were William the Dyer and Vincent the Fuller. We even know that in 1276 and 1323 the same William the Dyer (one of many engaged in this craft) ‘tipped his dyer’s effluent into the lord’s ditch by the Tyefield’ and made ‘an unlawful footpath across the Tyefield’ to his dye house by the river. Poor chap was probably taking a shortcut to work! He was fined 12 old pennies on each of the four occasions! In 1323 three other dyers, William Waller, William Semer and Reginald Fyport, were similarly fined for tipping their dyer’s effluent into the same ditch! All very much an indication of the significant cloth trade of the period. Certainly, in view of the pasturing of animals and dyeing of cloth, the proposed Brett Works/Allotment site seems to have been an important and well used part of medieval Hadleigh. References 1.

The new season has started on a high for the Diamond-Lites Majorettes who attended the BATON regionals in Clacton and for the start of the season, with new routines only just finished, we had some amazing results. 4 x 1st place routines, 3 x 2nd place routines, 2 x 3rd place routines and 3 x 4th place routines. Our new leaders all brought home 1st-4th place medals and there were lots of 1st-4th place medals for the mascots as well. Well done to Lakisha for getting ‘smiler’ of the troupe and Elana for getting ‘personality of the troupe’. Then to top it all off the Diamond-Lites girls and boys did it again Overall troupe of the weekend runner up!!! We are so very proud of you all well done Diamond-Lites. There was extra pressure on everyone this year to get the routines finished on time, as the Ansell Community Center has been closed for refurbishment for a few months. We really struggled to find another hall in Hadleigh to train in during this time which was at an affordable price. St Mary's CEVAP School came to our rescue, so from all the committee and all the girls and boys from Diamond-Lites Majorettes a massive THANK YOU to Mr Frolish and everyone at St Mary's School. The Ansell Community Center is now open again and looks amazing! As well as training hard throughout the winter the Majorettes have also been busy fundraising for their much needed new dresses and combination outfits. So thank you again to all the parents and children who gave up their weekends to fund raise and to everyone who brought raffle tickets for our easter raffle. We have alot of new girls in our younger group this year, the Diamond-Sparx (for 3-6 year olds and those waiting to join the youngest competing section of the troupe). They have also now finished their routine ready for the Fetes and Events they will be attending this year. So far this year we have many competitions to attend around East Anglia. We also will be attending the Nedging with Naughton Village Fete, the weekend of Celebrations of Interests and Talents at St Mary's Church, St Mary's CEVAP Fete, Monks Eleigh Bygone Vintage Rally, Cornard Fete and Barking Tye Fete. As the competition season has now started we will not be taking any more children until August. If you would like to put your name down to join the troupe in August please call Liz 07738 571307 or Gina 07787 190155.

Letter from Layham Parish Council Annual Parish Meeting There is no Parish Council meeting held in April – instead, the Chairman of the Parish Council invites all who have anything to report to the community to do so. There was a good turn-out to the meeting on Wednesday 25 April and reports were heard from the Michael Woods Chairman of the Parish Council, Sue Wigglesworth our District Councillor, John Curran Emergency Planning Officer, David Pearce for the Friends of St Andrews and the PCC, Lesley Garnett on our Green Team, Steve Laing on Highways and Footpaths, Anne Mayhew on Layham Social Club (now called Layham Tuesday Club), Louise Allen for the National Grid Working Group, Michael Woods for the Playing Field Management Committee, Ron Gunn on our Publicly-owned Land and Property and Richard Cromwell for the Village Hall Management Committee. The proposed talk on “The men behind the names on the village war memorial” was postponed until a later date due to late running of the meeting. Parish Council: Planning Meeting A Planning Meeting was held in the Village Hall on Monday 29th April 2013. The proposed alterations and extensions to Water Lane Cottage and Deaves Farm, Potts Lane were unanimously supported by councillors. The application for three new houses at a plot of land beside Raworth Park caused much critical comment from members of the public and discussion amongst councillors. A letter containing observations and questions was sent to the Planning Department of Babergh District Council following the meeting. Councillors saw problems with encroachment onto agricultural land, density of building in a small space, traffic issues including lack of an appropriate entrance splay, and possible drainage issues.

Friend’s of St. Andrew’s Jazz Evening The Friends of St. Andrews organised a Jazz Evening on Saturday 20th April, in the Church itself. We were well entertained by Rance’s Rocking Chair Band, and also well ‘fed and watered’ thanks to members of the Committee. A good time was had by all - including the band – members of which had travelled from far and wide. Over £500 was raised for the Charity. We plan to repeat, probably on an annual basis, so please look out for next year’s event.

and parts of Essex for 50 fellow members of the Morgan Sports car Club and their treasured motors. Drivers from 16 counties (and one from Belgium) started out from Stoke by Nayland Hotel on May 4 and followed a route which included Upper Layham The fleet of Morgans ranged from three-wheelers to Drophead Coupes and modern V6 varieties. Some of the participating cars were photographed by Laurence Nicholls The Morgan Motor Company was founded in 1910 by Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan. It is based in Worcestershire, and the firm is now run by his grandson Charles. All cars are still assembled by hand and there is a waiting list of up to two years for most models. Layham Tuesday Club Would you like to socialise with like-minded people twice monthly? Layham Social Club offers competitions, quizzes, tea dances and other enjoyable pursuits every other Tuesday afternoon at the Village Hall (2.30-4.00). If you just like to have a cup of tea and a chat – there are those who like to do that. Contact Anne Mayhew on 827216 or just come along to the next meeting on Tuesday 4 June. Annual Meeting of the Playing Field Management Committee The Annual Meeting was held in the village hall on Monday 13 May during which the present committee agreed to serve another year. One member of the public offered to join the group which brings numbers back up to a very healthy eleven members. Michael Woods (Chairman); John Millman (ViceChairman); Jane Elliott (Secretary); Graham Linge (Treasurer); Sam Millman (100 Club Officer); Lester Bennett; Colin Brown; Nick Elliott; Neil Riches; Andy Thorp; Jon Woods. The committee also enjoys the help of volunteers – Maureen Brown, Ron Gunn and Dave Petts. At a committee meeting following the annual meeting it was agreed to employ a contractor to cut the main field for a maximum of ten cuts during the year. It was also agreed to re-edge the play apparatus pits with timber as soon as possible. The mower replacement fund now stands at £1300. Second World War Crash Landing on Layham James Frisby, who lived in Layham until he married, has supplied detailed information about a Lancaster bomber crash landing at Hill Farm in Layham. The Lancaster 111 Serial No JB 744 PM of 103 Squadron Number 1 Group took off at 19.07hours on 18th March 1944 from RAF Elsham Wolds, North Lincolnshire on a bombing raid to Frankfurt. Outbound, both inner engines failed and the crew had to make decision to jettison the bombs over the sea after which they regained the East Anglian coast. As they sought somewhere to land they could not retain sufficient height and crash landed at 21.30hours at Hill Farm hitting trees and barns setting them on fire. The re-built barns can be seen on the right of the photograph. The crew consisted of: Flying Officer E.G.Moores; Flying Officer R.Wilkinson; Sgt.H.Mardon; Flight Sgt.E.S.Moran; Sgt.E.W.Shreeve; Sgt.R.E.Greenwood; Sgt.H.A.Edwards. The first three were injured and the other four escaped unhurt. That is quite a remarkable outcome considering the rolling nature of the ground around Hill Farm. Mr Miller, the owner of the farm was out at the time of the crash and as all communication with the aircraft was lost a member of the crew broke the glass in the front door of the farmhouse in order that he could telephone the emergency services. James Frisby, a small boy at the time, was taken to the site the next day by his father where they picked up a small piece of burnt silk and a piece of transparent plastic – which he has to this day.

Layham Playgroup Our New Garden! Our new garden is looking wonderful and the children are enjoying using it for a range of activities. The children love riding their bikes, cars and scooters on the new patio area, and then stopping off for a play in our new play house. They have all been very helpful watering our new grass, and we hope to plant some flowers and vegetables very soon. We would like to say a big thank you to Adam Bates, The Landscaper for all his help with our project, and to all the other volunteers.

TREAT DAD! Trip to Hollow Trees Farm We had a wonderful trip to the farm. On the day we pretended to be real farmers, and started off planting some corn in a mini field which we got to take home. It is already growing very tall and we are looking after it well. Roger the tractor then took us out to the fields where we looked at the crops growing, and had a turn at grinding the wheat to make flour, just like the Little Red Hen. We then went along the farm trail to feed all the animals. A super day out!

STANDING ORDER NO. 24 Councillor Byrne asked is the Town Council within its remit to complain to Babergh District Council about their changes in committee membership and disenfranchising political members due to their political status? The Town Clerk advised that correspondence had already been sent. Councillor Cook asked are Councillors aware that any future proposed changes to the Code of Conduct and Standards Regime which will apply to town/parish councils and on which the Government may wish to consult will be dealt with by the new Joint Audit and Standards Committee of Babergh District Council/Mid-Suffolk District Council and Suffolk County Council – a committee on which town/parish councils are not represented? She, therefore, asked that this item be an agenda item at the next Town Council Meeting. ACCOUNTS FOR PAYMENT It was RESOLVED that accounts amounting to £30,782.18 be approved for payment. PLANNING COMMITTEE The Minutes of the Committee held on the 11th April 2013 were noted. FINANCE & PERSONNEL COMMITTEE The Report of the Meeting of the Committee held on the 4th April 2013 was received and accepted including their recommendations to make grants of: i) £1,000 to Hadleigh Swimming Club ii) £500 to Suffolk Accident Rescue Service iii) £250 to the Rise’n’Shine Toddler Group iv) £150 to Miss Charlotte O’Brian ENVIRONMENT & GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE The Report of the Meeting of the Committee held on the 4th April 2013 was received and accepted.

EVERY MINUTE COUNTS CAMPAIGN The Clerk reported on the East of England Co-operative Community Access Defibrillators and their proposal to site a defibrillator at Hadleigh Co-op. TOWN MATTERS Councillor Cook updated the Council on the car parking meeting which had taken place on the morning of the 18th April and more details would follow after the next meeting to be held in a month’s time when a definitive proposal should be reached. There being no further business the meeting closed at 8.35pm Mrs Carol A. Bailey BA(Hons) – Town Clerk Report of the Meeting of the Planning Committee held on 11th April 2013 Present: Councillors Cook, Clarke, Free, Haylock, Lazenby, L. Munson Nevard, Matthews Sheldrick and Whiting. In attendance: Two members of the public. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE Apologies for absence had been received from Councillors Amin, Angland and Byrne. These apologies were duly accepted. DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST Councillor Cook declared a non-pecuniary interest in planning application B/13/00238/LBC – 8 Queen Street as she is a resident in the building. Councillor Lazenby declared a non-pecuniary interest in planning application B/12/01293/FUL – Hadleigh High School as he is a trustee of South Suffolk Leisure. Councillor Clarke declared a non-pecuniary interest in planning applications B/13/00317/CAC – 109 High Street and B/13/00355/LBC – 53-55 High Street as he is employed by the applicant. MINUTESThe Minutes of the Meeting of the Committee held on the 14th March 2013, were confirmed as a correct record and signed. MATTERS ARISING The Clerk advised the Committee that the appeal on B/12/01074/FHA had been unsuccessful. Any Other Business The Chair felt that the response from David Pizzey advising of the proposed replacement tree was disappointing. She and the Clerk would arrange a meeting with David Pizzey to discuss this matter further. At this point the meeting was adjourned to allow a member of the public to speak on application number B/13/00184/FUL. TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING The Committee considered the applications for Planning Consent, details of which are listed below and upon which the following decisions were reached:B/13/00018/FHA The Gables, 63 Angel Street. Erection of outbuilding to provide additional living accommodation for carer (following demolition of existing outbuildings). Refusal was recommended (Voting was unanimous). The grounds for recommending refusal are based on the access to the dwelling which is extremely narrow and highway concerns. It was drawn to the Committee’s attention that there have been two serious accidents in this area. The Chair asked that her thanks be minuted to the resident who had copied Hadleigh Town Council in on their letter of objection submitted to Babergh District Council. B/13/00177/FHA Springfields, 3 Station Road, External Cladding. Refusal was recommended (Voting was unanimous). It was felt that the proposed external cladding was out of character with the rest of the street and not in keeping with surrounding properties. B/13/00184/FUL 21 Long Bessels, Erection of 1½ storey dwelling. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous)

B/13/00247/FUL Highcroft, Lady Lane, Erection of 1 no. bungalow with garage and construction of vehicular access. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous) B/13/00322/FHA 48 George Street, Erection of detached garage building, 1.2 metre high brick wall with 5 bar access gate to front boundary, 1.8 metre high fence to south-west side boundary, 1.7 metre high wall and gate between garage building and dwelling, and siting of oil tank to north-east front corner of site (all retention of). Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous). The Committee were happy with the oil tank site and felt that the screening is adequate. Additional Applications: Councillor Cook left the room for this application. Councillor Lazenby took the chair. B/13/00238/LBC 8 Queen Street, Application for Listed Building Consent – Replacement of external timber doors at front of building. Replacement of existing gutter. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous). Councillor Cook returned and took the chair. B/13/00317/CAC 109 High Street. Application for Conservation Area Consent – Demolition of existing outbuildings. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous) B/13/00355/LBC 53-55 High Street. Application for Listed Building Consent – Internal alterations: insertion of 2 no. internal partition walls at ground floor level; and insertion of 2 no. internal partition walls with Fire Doors at first floor level. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous) B/12/01293/FUL Hadleigh High School. Additional amenity light attached to existing column over pitch and pathway leading to it (retention of) as amended by revised site location plan, block plan and ecological report received 21st March 2013. Approval was recommended (Voting was unanimous). The Committee found the revised site locations plans rather vague as they did not show the light column. TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING The Committee noted the Schedule of Decisions of the Local Planning Authority. NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN The Clerk provided the Committee with a verbal report following her attendance at the Larger Councils Conference which discussed Neighbourhood Plan. The item at the Conference had been presented by the Town Clerk of Truro Town Council who were part of the pilot scheme and were producing a Neighbourhood Plan. He advised that his Council had been working on their Neighbourhood Plan since 2011 and it was still incomplete. They had been provided with a lot of assistance from residents volunteering their knowledge and this had resulted in around 130 meetings taking place and the expenditure for the Plan amounted to £12,000. He explained that without the volunteers the work to produce a Neighbourhood Plan would cost around £70,000. The Clerk explained that there is a financial benefit in a Council having a Neighbourhood Plan in that the percentage paid by the developer (under the Community Infrastructure Levy) per new dwelling increases from 15% to 25% and is not capped at £100. It was agreed that the Clerk, Chair and Vice Chair of the Committee would meet to discuss more fully the implications of a Neighbourhood Plan for Hadleigh and report back to the Committee. The Clerk also reported on the Community Infrastructure Levies (CILS) which will replace the existing Section 106 payments. B/12/00891/DPA & B/12/00892/LBC – EAST HOUSE, GEORGE STREET The Committee noted that these applications had been withdrawn. The Clerk was asked to write to Babergh District Council asking that Hadleigh Town Council be notified in advance of the public displays which were reported in a recent press release. NEW DEVELOPMENTS It had been raised at the Town Council Meeting that developers should be responsible for street furniture, such as grit, dog and litter bins, and included on planning applications for new residential developments and paid for under the Section 106 monies. The Clerk was asked to write to Babergh District Council asking if this could be arranged. ANY OTHER BUSINESS The Clerk reported on an article in Monday’s East Anglian Daily Times reporting on Babergh District Council’s meeting where they would be adopting a constitution for Babergh District Council and MidSuffolk Council. The Clerk had attended the meeting and obtained a copy of the papers. Under planning it was proposed, and has been passed, that the Development Committee will be held every two weeks. The Clerk was concerned that if the time limit for responses is reduced it will affect Sudbury and Hadleigh Town Council who may have to consider holding Planning Committee Meetings every two weeks. There had been no consultation with Hadleigh Town Council prior to this recommendation being put forward. The

feeling of the Committee was that more planning applications would be dealt with under Officer Delegated Decisions and the Committee would have to ensure that the Babergh District Councillors see that, where it is considered important, applications are brought before the Development Committee. The Chair reported that as a result of that meeting and constitutional changes a decision had been agreed that only Councillors who are affiliated to a group of more than two members can sit on committees. This had resulted in an independent Councillor being removed from the Development Committee. The Clerk was asked to write to Babergh District Council deploring the principle. The Clerk had contacted SALC who felt that the decision although legal was not democratic. The Chair reported on the CIVIC VOICE e.mail requesting contact be made to your local MP on the proposed House of Lords amendment to changes to planning permissions. It was agreed that a letter be sent to Mr T. Yeo copied to Babergh District Council advising of Hadleigh Town Council’s response. Councillor Matthews was pleased to read in the East Anglian Daily Times that Sudbury Town Council’s discussions regarding car parks were going well. The Committee were disappointed that Hadleigh Town Council had not been mentioned in the article and the Chair reported that she and the Town Clerk were attending a meeting on car parks next week. There being no further business the meeting closed at 8.29pm Mrs Carol A. Bailey BA(Hons) – Town Clerk

On Thursday 16th May 2013 Councillor Brian Lazenby was elected to serve as the Town Mayor of Hadleigh for the year 2013/14. His Deputy is Councillor Mrs Sue Angland.

It was that time of year again when there was an early exodus from Hadleigh of 50 members of the HDTA to catch the ferry to France. It was a lovely sunny day and the crossing was so smooth you hardly knew you were sailing. We arrived in Rousies at the “Square Hadleigh” where there is a Rowan tree from Hadleigh growing. There we had a welcome speech from the Mayor of Rousies before going to Ferriere la Grande for a performance by the local choir and more welcome speeches accompanied by a little drink. There was a very interesting display of photographs and newspaper cuttings featuring the Jumelage going back over 30 years. We then dispersed to our hosts homes to be wined and dined in true French style. On Saturday 2 coaches full of Twinning members left Ferriere la Grande for an excursion to Arras. There we visited a display of exquisite historic coaches which are normally housed in the Palace de Versailles. This exhibition is in Arras until November. Lunch was taken at Flunch; a supermarket self-service cafe at Auchan, sadly not the best of French food and organisation. After lunch and a bit of retail therapy we had a guided tour of Arras with an English speaking guide both on the coach and on foot. Back in Rousies we had a very quick change for the dinner dance in Ferriere la Grande. This is always a splendid occasion and did not disappoint this year. We wined, dined and danced non-stop from 8 until 1. Sunday morning was spent relaxing with our hosts and after lunch we were taken to Ors to a memorial to Wilfred Owen, a first world war soldier and poet who lost his life 2 days before the end of the war. We then visited a brewery nearby where we held a meeting of the two twinning committees and sampled the beer. Next year the French will come to Hadleigh over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. The Sunday evening meal was another dinner-dance this time in the 'Salle de Fetes' in Ferriere la Petite. Here we presented the Mayor of Ferriere la Petite with an indoor/outdoor clock, inscribed with “Hadleigh 2013”. In between courses we were treated to a display of Irish and line dancing by a local group some of whom doubled up as waitresses when not performing. Monday morning arrived very quickly and the weekend was over. The farewells were emotional and we left a sunny Ferriere la Grande for the journey back doing our usual supermarket sweep along the way. Back in England our fundraising is well under way and we have already held a Pudding Night in the newly refurbished Ansell Centre. The meal of a light starter followed by 7 or 8 desserts was readily consumed by many of our members, guests and friends. The Line Dancing night which had to be cancelled in March at the last minute due to blizzard conditions has been re-organised. It will now take place on Saturday July 27th; again in the Ansell Centre. If you are interested in the Twinning and joining our visits and fund-raising activities contact our secretary Jane Marsland, 828392 or our chairman Peter Matthews, 828233.

Ebony’s Blog My life at The Shelley Centre The theme of fund raising continues into this Blog in that I’m able to confirm a very successful Countryside Walk, which took place on 05th May, with 55 walkers raising a generous £1,529 for The Centre’s coffers: unlike last year the weather was excellent and from my ear wigging of the conversations it appears everyone enjoyed the day, which included a stop at The Cock, Polstead for refreshment! In the sponsorship area, we wish to thank Suffolk County Council for awarding The Centre the sum of £1,850 from the Locality Fund toward the refurbishment of the mounting ramp at The Centre, thus replacing the existing rubber surface on industrial ply with a bonded longer life modern surface. The labour was provided by our very own in house maintenance Volunteers, Rob, John and Colin, with John Wallace giving the professional supervision as well as sourcing the material – many thanks to all for their hard work! Moving on, our Riders and Helpers had a good time at the Pony Day, which took place on 27th April (Another being held on 01st June). Everyone arrived for a 10am start and became involved in all aspects of looking after a pony, including preparing it’s stable and feed, bringing it in from the fields, grooming, as well as learning about rugs, feeds and the differing breeds of ponies. During the day everyone enjoyed a BBQ lunch and delicious cakes once all of the work had been finished but after a fun game of musical sacks. Here are some of the comments from our Riders about the day……Millie “On Pony Day I enjoyed leading Fleur in from the field to the stable”……David “I liked the food best! The grooming was good”…..Devin “I enjoyed riding Squidgy bareback in from the field and riding Thyme, and I liked putting the beds down”……Jessica “I enjoyed making the beds for my horse, and taking her out of the field. She was an excellent girl. My favourite part was going on a hack with Holly. It was fabulous. Thank you very much”……Richard “Riding out was the best part of the day, except for the weather. I learnt some new words to do with grooming”……Shannon “…. enjoyed grooming Jet, as on a normal lesson I don’t often get to groom, if it is it’s often a really quick brush over, plus (I know this sounds odd) but mucking out the stables was fun as I don’t get to do it often….”……Benjamin “I found the Pony Day really fun and enjoyable. It was beneficial and a good way to find out what it is like to own a horse….there was nothing I didn’t enjoy about the day....Thank you to everyone at Shelley….” Well, it appears the day was a great success with my contribution limited to watching the activity from my room, as any self respecting mechanical horse would do? It looked too much like hard work to me and I mustn’t overheat my delicate circuits must I? Website: Tel: 01473.824172

Bury Athletics Trials

Art Exhibition at Hadleigh High School This week has been the first week of our yearly Art Exhibition consisting of all the GCSE work produced by our Year 11 pupils. Our students have drawn inspiration from artists such as Colin Bradley, Andy Goldsworthy, Gustav Klimt, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock and Van Gogh to name just a few. The outcomes are impressive and cover a wide range of issues and concepts. Pupils have utilised a very wide range of media - water colour, printing, etching, pastels and pen and biro work. They have also developed works which are three dimensional using clay, card, papier-mâché, wirework and plastics. Our younger pupils always enjoy visiting the exhibition and we have had visiting pupils from our feeder primary schools in the past. On the evening of Wednesday 22nd May between 7:00 and 8:30pm we will be opening our exhibition to parents and all pupils across the school. We look forward to seeing you there.

Thursday 9th of May saw a select few Hadleigh Students compete at the Bury Athletics Trials. The event is used to select the Suffolk athletics team, who compete in a number of competitions across the summer months. The following students represented the school in the Suffolk Athletics trials which took place last week included:- Alex Baxter junior boys 1500m, Jackson Crisp junior boys 1500m, Oliver Peters junior boys 800m, James Rooks junior boys 200m and Boris Takam junior boys 100m & High Jump. Lucille O’Dwyer Inter girls100m, Amy Pettitt Inter girls 800m, Ruby Shepperson Inter girls 800m, Rachael White Inter girls 1500m and Jasmine Hayward Inter girls 1500m. George Johnson Inter boys 100 & 200m, Oscar Vardon-Barber Inter boys 100m, Seth Philbedge Inter boys 800m, Luke McGhee Inter boys 800m, Cal Dawson Inter boys 1500m, George Perry and William Disney Inter boys Discus. Our best results were as follows:-George Johnson was an impressive winner of the Inter boys 100 & 200m, Alex Baxter 3rd in Junior boys 1500m, George Perry 2nd in Inter boys discus, Jasmine Hayward 4th Inter girls 1500m and Boris Takam 5th Junior boys High Jump. Other performances which caught the eye, Oscar Vardon-Barber 2nd in the heat of Inter boys 100m and James Rooks 3rd in Junior boys heat of 200m. Amy Pettitt came 4th in the Inter girls 800m. As a result of George Johnson’s performance he is likely to be selected to represent Suffolk in the English Schools’ Athletics Championships to be held in July. In an open meeting recently held at Kings Lynn, George Johnson recorded a personal best time in winning the 200m of 22.9 sec. This is a really impressive time for a 16 year old.

D of E On the 11th and 12th of May the first group on their bronze qualifying expedition, walked from Sizewell to Marsh farm where the camped overnight. The next morning they walked to Chillesford to complete the expedition.

Year 11 Football Cup Final In dreadful conditions, the u-16 boys won a thrilling Suffolk Cup final 3-2 against Thurston.

Maggi had agreed to meet with the students before she gave the opening speech. She met and spoke with each student asking them to show her their sketchbooks. The GCSE Art students had been researching the work of Maggi Hambling in their

art classes and had recently been on an art trip to Aldeburgh to see “the scallop” sculpture on the beach and then onto the art gallery at Snape Maltings, to see some of her work on sale. Maggi Hambling asked the students about their art work and what were their opinions of her work. She gave them all advice about how to get on in the art world. The students were all extremely nervous but responded to all of her questions fantastically. After this private meeting they all listened to Maggi’s opening speech which was extremely inspiring.

Triathlon Mr Herron, Mrs Garrity and Mrs Wing all competed in the Wattisham triathlon earlier this month. They have been training hard for months; needless to say it was a gruelling challenge of both endurance and will power. Out of a field of 300, the three teachers came in in respectable positions. Mr Herron went on to compete in a 100 mile race the next day, completing the course in little over 5 hours.

Playstation Pre-School We can’t believe we are in June already. We have all been very busy trying to raise funds to improve our outdoor area. We had a very successful cake stall and also the facebook page, “playstationpreschoolfundraiser” is still very popular, selling childrens clothes and toys. Please like our page, have a look and grab yourself a bargain. We would like to thank Hadleigh Community Playschool for allowing us to have a car boot stall at their site recently, again this was a great success. Another thank you from us all is to Ainger Holbrows for donating some old tyres to us. The children have been having great fun climbing in them, jumping in them, rolling and stacking them. If you have been shopping at Sainsburys recently and have any of the school vouchers, please can you pop them in the box as you go into Playstation, we are collecting them to hopefully purchase new sports/ outdoor equipment. In January the Government announced plans to relax staff to child ratios in Early Years Settings and for child minders in England. The Playstation is a member of the Pre School Learning Alliance, who has launched the Rewind the Ratios Campaign. Please can we all visit and sign the petition to stop these changes. On a brighter and happier note our fees here at Playstation will remain the same, and will not increase until September 2013. Our register is filling up very quickly so if you would like to register early to ensure your child/ children have a place at Playstation then give us a call on the number below. Also if your child has just turned two, and if you meet certain financial criteria you may be entitled up to10 hours funding per week. Again if you would like any more information on this please speak to Mandy. If you would like to enquire about places at Playstation we can be contacted at Please telephone Playstation on 824271 for enrolment details, a prospectus or to arrange a visit.

Hadleigh High School As a form group in Hadleigh High School, 8T are taking up the challenge to walk 100 miles per person and we need your help! We will be walking the distance between Ghana and England - that’s 3000 miles all together! We want to raise £1000+ for the children in our partner school Akwaaba in Ghana. In their school they have very few resources such as copies of important text books and only have one laptop in the whole school! As our challenge we want to raise this money so that we can buy the school web cams, a projector and other essential equipment to help out their school and so we can even have joint lessons! We’re rising to this challenge, can you help us? So, if you are interested in supporting our cause or maybe sponsoring us please contact us at

Kings Pightle Nature Reserve at Bildeston Hidden away between the main road and Bildeston Brook, approached from the corner of the Sports Field in Consent Lane, lies Kings Pightle Nature Reserve. The purchase and creation of this Wild Life Park was the idea and driving force of the late John Artiss who saw the purchase of the land come to fruition in 1994. On his death John ensured that his vision would be continued by making a bequest in his will for the “purchase and upkeep of land in and around Bildeston to be used for nature projects”. It was decided, from the start, that we would “make haste slowly” and we have spent a great deal of time taking advice from leading nature groups, especially Suffolk Wildlife Trust to whom we are very grateful. This lack of intervention has allowed the reserve to develop undisturbed over the years. The diversity of species now established has greatly increased over that period. It took until 2010 for the Committee to feel that the reserve was ready to be opened which was performed by David Halls, Chairman at the time and Brother in Law of John. We have now arrived at the position in its development that an open day can be held organised jointly by the Committee and Suffolk Wildlife Trust on Sunday 23rd June. Please come along and join us to see the various habitats including woodland, marsh and meadow. Just follow the signs to the Sports Field. The School and other local bodies are keenly interested in using it for educational and recreational purposes. Future plans include a Bird Hide and a Picnic Area by the Brook. You can access further information and contact members of the Committee on the web-site: Mac Speake, Chairman 24 30

Fidelis Activity News Yes, Prime Minister:- Could a successful TV series be equally effective on stage and with a different cast? The West End production, recently on tour at The New Wolsey Theatre, proved that beyond doubt. Written by the original playwrights, Anthony Jay & Jonathan Lynn, the plot skilfully incorporated political skulduggery, spin, cultural hang ups, oil and call girls. These explosive elements, laced with swingeing wit and canny observations, skilfully executed by a highly convincing cast, ensured that members had a most enjoyable afternoon at the theatre. Home Start:- A charity, based in the ‘home’ at the ‘start’ of the child’s life, serving many different, challenging catchment areas. Sally Lewis, from the Harrow branch of Home Start, gave a brief outline of the origins and remit of this nation-wide charity which has helped over 32,000 families since it’s foundation by Margaret Harrison in 1973. Sally then spoke of her early days with the organisation and of how helping local disadvantaged families eventually became (L to R) Sarah Mann, Jane Farrow and part of her life for over fifteen Sally Lewis years. The ladies heard about some of the more challenging situations she had encountered in the course of her work. As the focus of Home Start is on the wellbeing of children in the family, this sometimes means solving other basic social problems along the way. The diversity of difficulties and hardship was incredible and in Sally’s area it often involved ethnic and cultural issues. Critically, Home Start volunteers are only there to help and not make judgements on lifestyle or personal inadequacies. It was clear that the tailor made work of Home Start volunteers could not be provided by the public sector. In spite of this, Harrow Council has decided to cut the funding and close the group. It’s anyone’s guess how these needy families will cope in the future. Sarah Mann and Jane Farrow from the South Suffolk District Home Start group then gave a brief and very general résumé of their work in the locality. These couldn’t have been more different from Sally’s area but no less challenging and only served to highlight the ability of the charity to adapt to the children’s needs wherever they are. Fortunately funding is still available to them and they remain cautiously optimistic that it will continue. Jan Devey

Many people would say they would, but do they really mean it? If they did then they would be slim by now wouldn’t they? Everybody could be slim and healthy if they want to be – all you have to do is make that choice. Yes it really is that simple! Or should be! So what’s stopping you? What’s the excuse this week? Do you have a birthday or holiday coming up or are you too stressed at work? Are you unsettled in another area of your life – a relationship perhaps? Sometimes it’s more deep-rooted and may go back to childhood issues. These things need to be addressed, maybe with professional help. They crop up at some point in most people’s lives but we cope far better with them when we feel happier in our own skin. That means feeding ourselves a healthy, balanced diet, maintaining a sensible weight (it’s not all about being a size 8) and treating ourselves with kindness and respect. So if you’ve been ‘trying’ to lose weight don’t beat yourself up too much (we’re all human) but draw a line under anything that’s tripped you up and carry on. Keep at it, find and use any tool you can to help you. Cambridge Weight Plan is just that - a science-based weight loss tool with the added benefit of your own personal consultant who can help you achieve your goal. Remember – little by little a little becomes a lot. If you would like individual help with a weight problem, Val Lord has been an accredited Independent Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant for over 4 years and can be contacted on 01449 737113 or 07519 177645. She is also available at French Complexion, Hadleigh. Go to for more information. Remember that if you choose to ignore the issue and carry on eating and drinking anything and everything then it’s no surprise that you can’t get to your goal.

Hadleigh Healing Society Harmony: Agreement, concord, melodious sound is the definition according to the dictionary. Do we all live our lives in complete harmony? Are we in harmony with Nature and our environment? The answer to these questions is NO. The pace of life is so fast and as humans we are trying to cram so much into a day we do not take that few minutes for quiet reflection. We all need to stand still and let the world go by before we jump on the fast train of life again. The constant hurrying, trying to do six things at once, catching up on those neglected tasks all take a toll on people. Before you know it you begin to feel stressed and unable to cope. We, the healers can help by talking and helping you to relax. Take the opportunity by allowing others to help you cope with your busy life. If you feel you need that help please telephone: 01474 823282 (answer machine) or log onto for an appointment. The Annual General Meeting of the Hadleigh Healing Society will be held on Sunday, 9th June at 7pm at The Guildhall, Hadleigh. After the business has been completed there will be a demonstration of clairvoyance by Malcolm Raven, a well known medium. Please come along – all welcome. Entrance £4 including a raffle ticket

The members of Hadleigh Childminding Group are pleased to offer their services and support to local families in providing the very best in affordable, reliable and flexible childcare. In the same way as nursery and pre-school care, we work within the guidelines of Early Years practice whilst also offering real-life learning experiences like cooking, shopping, gardening, sharing meals and going out to the park and library for children to enjoy. Our flexible and spontaneous approach ensures that children lead varied and enriched activities that enhance their learning and development. We care for small groups of children and take into account the individual needs of each child. Every child is unique. These small groups can include children of different ages where children learn to work and play together. Often siblings are cared for by the same childminder, many families find this convenient and beneficial to their needs. Offering wraparound care from early morning to late evening, including school and nursery pick up and drop off, school holiday activities and even some overnight providers, Hadleigh childminders really do go that extra mile for local families. We meet as a group every week to share activities with the children and support for one another. We are pleased to welcome Nannies to our group together with the children they care for. Our vacancy co-ordinator would be delighted to hear from you if you are a family looking for childcare or, if you are a newly registered childminder or nanny seeking support and activities for children in your care, please contact the Chairperson.

Pause for Thought What good news would you like to hear today? You’ve won the lottery? Got a job? Illness has been cured? We all have issues and needs and we think it would be good news indeed if our problems were to disappear. Well I’ve got good news - not just good news but amazing, incredible, lifechanging news! YOU are of immense value and worth. God thinks you are so valuable you are worth dying for. God says that in the Bible. It says “God so loved the world (that’s you and me) that He gave His one and only Son (that’s Jesus) that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3 .16). God loves people so much he gave Jesus to die a cruel vile death on a cross so we could be forgiven. You might think that is not the good news you need – but here’s why it is.......Everybody ends up in the same place - rich or poor, famous or not. The Grave. BUT Jesus died on the Cross and paid an extreme cost for all the wrong stuff we each have done. If we are truly honest, we know we have done wrong. God knows that too. We only get into heaven by receiving God’s forgiveness. Jesus did not stay in His grave – but came back to life and made a way to everlasting life in Heaven. That really is the ultimate Good News.

Towards the Deep End First of all very many thanks to everyone who voted for me, gave me encouragement and supported me during my successful campaign to become County Councillor for Hadleigh. Especial thanks to my family and friends near and wide who encouraged me in my ambitions and who came out on the streets when required. I’ve called this column “Towards the Deep End”, because it is one thing to win an election and it’s something completely differently to learn to do the job effectively. There is no formal training programme. The probation period is four years – but I think that any discontent might be vocalised long before 2017 (next election day). Fortunately I bring a wide experience gained from various jobs in many countries – which hopefully will let me be an effective councillor. One of my duties is to distribute £12,000 a year for four years to worthy local causes. This money is for the people of Hadleigh and it is funded by them. So if your organisation needs funds please send me an e-mail at Some organisations may wish to receive a chunky £500 or more. In which case a quite formal proposal will be required. On the other hand a request for £150 or less could be covered in a short e-mail detailing the how much, the what for and the benefit. I will need to see receipts so that we can all know that the money was used for the purpose intended. What might be suitable? Let’s have requests which will make life sweeter and which may have an impact beyond the nominal value of the request. Let me know what’s wanted so we can put this money to the best use. My overall duty is to protect and promote Hadleigh. Please send me your wish list of what you would like to see in our town. I want those ideas which we can try to develop over the next four years. Ideas which have already been sent to me are: • Turning East House into an art gallery and tourist attraction like Gainsborough House in Sudbury. • Extending the boundaries of the Area of Outstanding Beauty along the west bank of the River Brett up to Corks Lane • Having sensible speed limits around the Station Road/Pond Hall Road/Hook Lane junctions And so on. Nothing is ruled out. If we don’t put these ideas and similar ideas into discussion, they will never happen. So please speak up and let’s have the town we want rather than a town forced upon us by people who think they know what’s good for us. E-mails would be nice, but if you stop me in the street, that’s O.K. If you can come to my surgery at the Hadleigh Library on the second Saturday of each month, that works too. Let’s go forward together – towards the deep end. Tell me what’s wanted and what’s needed and together we shall see what we can do. Brian Riley

FRIDAY 21st JUNE at 7.30 pm

LES MISÉRABLES (12A) It is 27 years since LES MISÉRABLES opened in London – and it is still running. We are delighted to be presenting the film version on Friday 21st June – a magnificent tribute to Cameron Mackintosh, producer of the London stage show and now the film. Victor Hugo's classic story is about a prisoner, Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman ) who is consumed by hatred after serving 20 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving child. He breaks his parole and is pursued by a determined lawman, played by Russell Crowe. Valjean's endeavours to lead a Christian life are, unfortunately, thwarted by this rigid upholder of the law. This is a wonderful movie, possibly the most ambitious film of all time – guaranteed to raise your spirits, brilliantly acted and sung with unprecedented emotional depth. The music will haunt you! LES MISÉRABLES is our longest running film yet, some 157 minutes, and was nominated for 8 Oscar awards. There will be one interval in the film which replicates the timing of the London stage production. We hope to serve choc ices in the garden weather permitting! Admission will be £ 3.50 for adults and £ 2.50 for accompanied children. LES MISÉRABLES – make a note in your diary and come early to secure the best seats at The Ansell Centre presentation! You will find Hollywood in Hadleigh in the Ansell Centre

CONTACTING THE ACC Call Tom on 823719 or Jan on 823413 Take a look at our website - WHERE IS THE ANSELL CENTRE? It is next to the United Reformed Church and behind the Ram Public House in Market Place. Access is through the church garden. 38

Midsummer at Orchard Barn – a magical time, when we can reap the rewards of a busy spring Our Basic woodworking skills community workshops, funded by Suffolk Foundation taught participants how to use a range of hand tools including a saw, plane, chisel and hand drill, with the aim of helping them to feel more confident to undertake their own basic carpentry projects. In the process they built a lovely workbench for us – see photograph. We have also recently completed our first Building Sustainable Lives course enabled by grant funding from the European Social Fund. Over a 7 week period five local people braved the complete range of Suffolk weather (remember the cold and snow in March?) to learn traditional building skills with us on our live restoration project. As the range of courses at Orchard Barn continues to grow, so did the need for a dedicated toolshed. Combine this with the ESF grant to deliver 4 skills based personal development courses and lots of positive outcomes are getting built. You've guessed right - we're constructing ourselves a new tool shed as a series of training courses. Our combination of traditional carpentry, green woodwork and wattle and daub has proved a hit with ESF learners. 'I really liked the way the trainers linked the methods and techniques to the time period.' SM 'The training opened my eyes and made me realise I can do more things efficiently than I would have believed.' CL If you're unemployed, or working less than 16 hours a week, and you'd like to get involved we still have places on the last course starting Friday 7th June. Contact or call him on 01449 613983 or 07863 999011 to see if you are eligible for our FREE 7 week course. We have a few places left on our FREE community workshops - Working with the wood. Choosing coppiced materials to utilize their individual character, you will develop new skills and learn how to see what the wood suggests to design and construct seating. Help make some benches and a chair or two for our indoor teaching area. We are running this course on 4 dates - 1st, 8th or 29th June (times 10-4.30) under the expert tutelage of Helen Woodbridge. We will also be running the workshop in conjunction with our stand at Combs Fete, 6th July, and showcasing the completed articles. To register your interest in attending, please email or phone Sarah on 01473-658193 We are continuing our Wednesday volunteer workdays, and June will be a lovely time to experience our site. If you are interested in doing practical work in a beautiful environment do get on touch, even if you have no previous experience.

We were treated to the expertise and encyclopaedic knowledge on the growing and distilling of lavender, by Mark De Roy at our May meeting. Mark and his wife own and run the only lavender farm in Essex! They bought a small farm on the side of the Stour Estuary near Harwich and researched what they could grow that would thrive in somewhat unpromising soil. The result of this lead them to try lavender and that was the start of a thriving business in lavender essential oil and and a dozen or so other uses. Things as diverse as honey to hand creams, to pain relief and perfume, plus many more. By their careful study it became obvious that it is one of the oldest commodities, beginning in the mists of time. To ensure the product is never contaminated by association with modern products, like engine oil and other lubricants, harvesting is all done by hand and the distilling uses the ancient methods involving nothing of the modern world of industry. Weeds are pretty much kept at bay by exceptionally close planting and the occasional hand weed. Mark showed us slides depicting the growing, harvesting and distilling from ancient times and emphasising the place lavender has had in the history of medical preparations and perfumes. Next month will be the start of our Summer Season with a "Garden Meeting" followed by two outings. The serious garden season begins on 9th September with a demonstration of "Willow weaving for the garden" by Jo Hammond and marks the return to regular monthly meetings - 2nd Monday in the month in the Dining Room at the Town Hall - look forward to seeing you there if not before.

Hadleigh Gardens Personal Thoughts The dandelions have been magnificent this year. If it was not for the ease with which they seed around where we do not want them, they would be a popular garden plant. One of the places where they have been seeding is in my lawns, and this Spring I have decided to remove as many as I can. One could treat them individually with an appropriate weedkiller, but I prefer to dig them out with a tool that I have that works very well. Whichever technique you use you will end up with a hole in the grass where the grass has been killed by the shade from the dandelion leaves. I dress these holes with a mixture of sand, compost, and grass seed. I think that the dandelion display has just been one aspect of all of our plants trying to catch up after a very cold Spring. I have a good selection of apple trees, and normally they come into flower over a three week period. This year they all seemed to come out together. I grow a cauliflower called St George because it is usually ready on St George's Day April 23rd. This year I cut them on May 16 th. A couple of years ago I wrote about peat free composts and said that I had found one that I could work with, and was consistent. This year the contents of this brand of sack have changed, and the results of using it have been rather poor, so I am with some sadness back to using a peat containing compost. In the February edition of the RHS journal there was an article with the title "What's in the bag ? It's a media secret" by Nigel Colborn which raised all sorts of questions about the available peat free composts. This is important when the government is trying to phase out the amateur use of peat in composts by 2020. Weather Records In April at Kersey there were 22.5 mm (0.9") of rain, which is about half of the average rainfall. The 3 month figure was 89.1 mm (3.5") which is about 1/2 of the average. So our gardens are getting rather dry. In April the maximum temperature was 20 Cel (68F), which is about normal, but gives a rather misleading picture because it was only warm on 2 or 3 days. The minimum temperature for April was -3 Cel (27F) which is low for April. In my garden the ground temperature at writing is 10 Cel (48F), which is about normal for mid May.

Hints By June plants have been bought and planted, and most seedling have been raised, so to a large extent gardening moves into a maintenance phase. Plants need to have adequate water and feed, and insect pests need to be kept under control, but the peak in gardening work is over. Some plants will need a bit of extra support as they grow. This particularly applies to tall stately plants like delphiniums. There are optional things that one can do. For example one can get bigger rose blooms by removing side buds on a stem, and if you have space you can lift and divide polyanthuses and primroses so that you have more plants for next years display. Many flowering plants will give you extra flowers if you remove the dead flowers before the plant uses its energy to make seed. June is not too late to sow seeds of many vegetables, particularly with things like lettuce when you want a continuous supply. Good Gardening, John Rye

Dear Sir Goodbyeeeeeeee! When you read this letter I will be retired from Slimming World, after 13 years as a consultant. I want to take this opportunity to thank all who have helped me, including this magazine, and to say goodbye to all my members past and present. The group is now in the capable hands of Wendy (07718 304692) and will continue to have fun at the Leisure Centre every Thursday! It was never a job, such a great fun thing to be involved in, and I will miss you all dreadfully. Wishing you all the very best in your weightloss journey Yvonne Skinner

Dear Sir We were pleased to see reported recently the “generous offer” that business man Paul Price has offered to Hadleigh Rugby Football Club, it has the potential to effect a number of the sporting fraternity of our Town. If this great offer should go ahead and be given the backing by all concerned, then the Town Council could have the opportunity to move forward, and discuss the needs of many sports clubs, to define the new structure of the community ground for the future sporting youth of this town. Thanks for the offer Paul and hope it gets the backing it deserves. Richard Crisp and Melvin Oxford

Dear Sir Jan Byrne's April and May Hadleigh Society articles in the HCN, carry resonance when linked to "Suffolk - The Curious County" campaign (to boost Suffolk tourism). Firstly, in the Market Towns section of Suffolk's Places to Visit Guide is Hadleigh, the main feature is a photograph across the gardens to St Mary's Church taken from across the Brett - the clear message is "green and tranquil". Were the Tesco development to proceed, a photograph of the immediately adjacent view, would be that of a large car park with attendant vehicles, noise and pollution, against a back drop of a modern supermarket. Secondly, QC Mr Stinchcombe's Opinion is that local "retail need" is more than fulfilled by Morrisons. The Local Plan thereby is out of date (confirmed by Babergh Council's own advisor) and must not be relied upon. Indeed, if the Council gave approval to a supermarket development on the Brett Works site, they would be in breach of central government planning directives, thus giving rise to a legal challenge. Thirdly, Jan Byrne's vision of opening up the proposed site, developed at little cost as an extension to the riverside walk, will be a boost for visitors and locals alike and bring additional spend into the local community. Were a Tesco to be built, spend will be taken out of the community and benefit only Tesco shareholders.Given the above, I put it to you that to approve the Tesco application would indeed be "curious"! Simon Wills We have been able to arrange a Summer Course:

News from The Station

Bath Lifts




At the recent Annual Hadleigh Town council Meeting, I reported the yearly crime figures. For the previous 12 months we have reported 77 crimes less than we did in 2011/12, a statistic that all of us at Hadleigh Police Station are very proud of, and one that we have worked extremely hard to achieve. I can also tell you that anti-social behaviour reports have fallen indicating that the Town remains a safe and inviting place to be. At the same meeting, I discussed dog fouling with Councillors. We are all aware of the health risks that exist if human contact is made with dog faeces. All dog owners have a responsibility to clear up after their animals, and as a community we all have a responsibility to encourage offenders to change their ways, or to report incidents to Police or the Environmental team at Babergh District Council. I recently reported to the community that we had embarked on a zero tolerance campaign against illegal and inconsiderate parking in Benton Street. The need for this was due to regular complaints of congestion and obstruction that was causing a danger to other road users. Initially many fixed penalty notices were issued, but I am pleased to say that at the time of writing, we have not issued a ticket in two weeks as no offences have been witnessed or reported. I would like to thank the residents and users of Benton Street for taking responsibility for their vehicles, and whilst we continue to monitor the situation, I am sure we can keep the area clear of obstructions. This article is written fresh after policing the Hadleigh Show. The Saturday was a joy to be part of, and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of another hugely successful show. The new traffic management system that was agreed by the organisers and the County Council ensured disruption to the roads was minimal and we had no incidents that caused concern. Many of you will know that traditionally the Friday evening before the Hadleigh Show is often the time when we see a spike in low level crime and disorder, violence and alcohol fuelled anti-social behaviour. Once again, we had a robust Policing operation in place on the Friday evening that involved, for the first time, SIA approved security staff taking responsibility for the fairground and its entrance. It was also the first time we have been able to utilise the powers presented to us by the Designated Public Place Order. By the end of the evening we had seized 13 cans of premium strength lager, 5 cans of cider, 7 litres of super strength cider, 1.5 litres of vodka cocktail and a litre of vodka mix drink. This was in addition to the vodka, beers and cider that were seized by the security staff on the gate. Police dealt with one minor assault late in the evening, otherwise it was a complaint free night with no calls to Police and many positive comments received from members of the public. I have no doubt in my mind that had it not been for the alcohol seizures, we would have had a very busy night and would have had many more incidents to police. I thank the Town Pastors who volunteered their time to assist in the operation. Their presence was very much appreciated. Remember, the Police Station is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 1pm and 3pm, or you can contact the Police on 101 (999 in an emergency). Until next time, Matt

Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the shallot and garlic until softened but not coloured. 2. Add the rice and fry for one minute, stirring frequently, until coated in the oil. 3. Add the wine and simmer until absorbed by the rice. 4. Add the hot vegetable stock a ladleful at a time, stirring between each addition to allow the liquid to be completely absorbed, until the rice is cooked and all the stock has been absorbed. 5. Add asparagus, butter and parmesan, season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and stir well. 6. For the parmesan crisps, place six small handfuls of grated parmesan onto a non-stick baking sheet at wide intervals. Press the piles of parmesan down to flatten them, then transfer to oven and bake for 6-8 minutes, until goldenbrown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool and set. 7. To serve, divide the risotto equally among two serving dishes and top with the parmesan crisps.

Makumbaya School in The Gambia Following our 12 month fundraising efforts for a school in The Gambia we have just returned from a visit to see where the money has been spent. Makumbaya village school stands in the middle of a very desolate area where the pupils are drawn from 3 nearby villages. The school takes children from 3-7 years old, both Muslims and Christians and there are 200 attending at the present time. There is no funding from any educational authority or the Government, the teachers receive no salaries and are entirely dependent on small donations from the local villagers, who themselves are mostly subsistence farmers with very little income. School uniforms have to be supplied by the parents. We were told that some children go to school without underwear because their parents can’t afford to buy it. The school has no money to buy any resources and depends on the goodwill of tourists who visit and take gifts of pencils, pens and paper. At the start of our fundraising our aim was to buy new desks and chairs for one of the classrooms. This done we were then made aware of the terrible state of the roof which was leaking badly and the children had to miss lessons some days during the rainy season because there was nowhere dry to sit. We then sent money for this to be repaired (or so we thought). Imagine our surprise on visiting this year to find a completely new school had been built! Apparently the owner of the land on which the old school had been standing wanted his land back so the school had nowhere to go. Our contact in the Gambia, Batou, a local taxi driver, who visits the school on a regular basis, arranged for the money we had been sending to be put towards buying a plot of land and building a new school. This had all been kept a secret from us until our visit. On arriving at the new school everything appeared to be very quiet but on pulling up in the Landrover we were surrounded by a large crowd of children, all singing “welcome, welcome”. They all wanted to shake our hands and say “thankyou”, it made us feel very emotional. The children had composed a special song for us which they sang with great gusto. We then looked around the new school, which has not yet been completely finished; it comprises 3 classrooms and a small office. The workmen were plastering the last classroom, floors still have to be laid, window frames and shutters, door frames and doors have to be fitted. It is hoped that this will all be completed before the start of the next rainy season which starts in June. During our visit we presented the headmistress with a further donation which we believe will go a long way towards building a small toilet block. We understand the school was built entirely from our fundraising, small donations from the poverty stricken local villagers and a donation from our contact, Batou, which was very generous as he supports an extended family of 12, and sometimes has no income during the rainy season when there are very few tourists and so there is no call for taxi drivers. Although we didn’t see the new desks and chairs we were assured by the Headmistress that they had been put into storage until they could be transferred to the new premises. After seeing the delighted looks on the faces of all the children and receiving grateful thanks from the headmistress and teachers we feel we would like to continue with our fundraising just to see the project completed. Trees need to be planted in the grounds to give the children some shade whilst they are playing outside. It would be wonderful if we could give the school some money to go towards buying essential resources to assist the children with their education. We would like to give a big thankyou to all who have supported our fundraising over the last 12 months:- Hadleigh Thrift Shop, friends at St Mary’s Church, Hadleigh, Revd Jimmy Glennon, The Barbers Shop, Hadleigh, Trevor McCleese, colleagues from BASF, Hadleigh Tai Chi, family and friends and all who supported our coffee mornings. We would appreciate your support at our next fundraising event which will be a Coffee Morning at St Mary’s Church, Hadleigh on Friday 19th July 10.00-12.00 noon. If you feel you could assist with our fundraising in any way we would be delighted to hear from you - Rose & Brian Welham Tel 01473 823565

Newton Green Junior Fund Raiser The club's captains and their partners well and truly cleaned up when teams took part in a fund raising day to aid the club's junior section at Newton Green Golf Club. With the two best scores counting in a four-ball team event, the men's captain and vice captain, Winners, left to right: Andrew Johnson, Sarah Chris Williams and Andrew Johnson, Williams, Tim Cooper (Junior section chairman), Chris Williams and Lizzie Johnson. were teamed with their wives Sarah and Lizzie, and amassed 95 points off their full handicaps. They were followed home by ladies' captain and vice captain, Carol Durston and Sue Thurgate, partnered by husbands Colin and David, who also turned in an impressive score of 90, some six more than the next team. The club provides funds for free coaching for all its juniors during the winter months, and proceeds of £600 from the day will help maintain this corner stone of the club's success with junior golf.

Beyond the floodlights and the goal posts....... By Donna Ramsey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Millfield Bar & Facilities Manager If I had a pound for every time I hear someone say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought The Millfield was just a football clubâ&#x20AC;?, I'd be sunning myself on a beach in the Caribbean. The mention of Hadleigh United Football Club to most people conjures up pictures of grass pitches and men and kids of all ages running around in white & navy, but it's my job to make sure people know that we are more than 'just a football club'. Our refurbished function rooms were opened in April 2009 by Mr. Brian Lazenby, the towns Mayor, the same day that the club was officially promoted to the Ridgeons League Premier Division. The committee realised that the club needed to create a venue that could be one of the best in the area to generate an income that would help fund the running of our football teams, and that is exactly what we have. We are situated to the east of the Town on the banks of the River Brett, hence the teams nickname 'The Brettsiders'. We have a tarmac car park which accommodates around 90 cars, vitally important for delegates attending training sessions or meetings knowing that they can park close to where the event is taking place. We now have two function rooms, which are used most days of the week for meetings, seminars and training sessions. The function rooms can be opened up into one large room accommodating up to 180 people, each room has it's own entrance and licensed bar and can be furnished to suit our clients needs. Our rooms are furnished with leather sofa's, dark wood tables and high back faux leather chairs and the main room is fully air conditioned and there is also a fully functional kitchen. The club has been awarded a five star rating for very high standards of food safety management by Babergh District Council. Outside we have a large block paved terrace area which overlooks the main pitch, and, beyond that the rolling hills of the picturesque and tranquil Suffolk countryside. Because we have our prized assets of location, parking and space, all I needed to concentrate on when I took on the role was service, then we would succeed in what is essentially a service industry. I still recall my dismay when I realised that there was no internet connection in the building, how was I going to survive! A few drastic measures had to be taken, and now were up and running. We now have some great staff who provide the service for our clients demands, providing refreshments and excellent buffets to satisfy our corporate clients. So, although from Tinkers Lane all you can see is floodlights and goal posts........ we are actually 'so much more than a football club'. For further details or enquiries contact me on 07917 730516 or email

If only they could talk..... The animals and people at Suffolk and Essex Small Animal Welfare are enjoying the warmer weather, when it's not raining. One of the volunteers was talking to the Guinea Pigs in the garden yesterday - and they were answering her! Dawn explained that squeaking and purring are happy noises, sometimes they even sing, and they get really excited when they hear her pulling up grass for them to eat. We have lots of pretty, long haired boys like Buzz and Woody, paired up ready to be rehomed. They make lovely children's pets and the silky hair is tangle free. Although Guinea Pigs can be kept in a sheltered position, a shed is ideal and makes life easier for the owner, especially in the winter. Another talkative animal curently residing with us is Bustopher, a big boy with CATitude! This affectionate, dapper black and white cat has plenty to say but lets you know when he has had enough, so needs an understanding home. Visit him and the Piggies at Stoke Road, Leavenheath, CO6 4PP between 10am-1pm from Wednesday to Sunday or leave a message on 01787 210888. I hear we have several different dogs coming in soon so I'll tell you about them next month. Meanwhile I'm going to supervise making our Scarecrow, ready for the Leavenheath Open Gardens Day on Sunday 23rd June. Don't forget to call in when you get to our end of the village, we are staying open especially and you might see little old me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.

The Boxford Tornado cycling sportive, organised by the Boxford Bike Club, certainly lived up to its breezy name this year, as 400 riders battled against a stiff southerly wind to complete the various routes. Although the day was bright and sunny, the wind gave the participants an extra unexpected challenge, making the event more memorable for some! The event had sold out in a matter of weeks, proving again how popular the sport of cycling has become in this country. Unfortunately the persistent wintry weather meant many riders had less preparation time than they would have wanted. The southerly wind pushed the riders out towards Ixworth at the most northerly point, where they turned south again and battled back to Boxford for the next 30 miles.The faces of the returning riders - a mixture of horror and relief - told the story of how tough the ride had been. An amazing spread of cake, donated by the members of the bike club and local residents awaited their return, organised by a very efficient team of helpers from the Boxford Community Council who were staffing the refreshments this year. The riders donated very generously for the refreshments, recently enabling the bike club to present a cheque for £500 to the community council raised from the proceeds. The feedback from riders was extremely positive, most enjoying the undulating, picturesque route and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere of the event, not to mention the abundant amount of homemade cake! A successful event like this, obviously wouldn't happen without the help and cooperation of many. Our thanks go to the Boxford Community Council for offering to run the refreshments, to the bakers who donated the cakes and to the army of volunteers who marshalled the event. Lastly we would like to say a big thank you to the residents of Boxford, especially those who live in Homefield for happily accommodating all the two wheeled folk for the day. Matthew Shinn

Surprise 80th Birthday Party for Barbara Boyd What a wonderful surprise !!! My family, friends and nearly all the volunteers from the Thrift Shop organised a party for my 80th birthday. I had no idea - my daughter Abigail and my dear friend Joan Rampling lied through their teeth to get me to the party and I didn't suspect a thing!! My daughter Alexandra couldn't be there as she was in Amsterdam making a commercial, neither could Abigail's boyfriend Davide as he had to go to Italy at short notice. Look at the wonderful cake that was made with a Thrift Shop theme - it was truly magnificent. It was made by a local girl, thank you so much Tracy. I was truly touched by everything and will treasure the occasion for ever. A big, big thank you to all concerned.

Regional Success for the Hadleigh Dolphins Ben Olive came an impressive 31st in the East Region Youth Championships held at the appropriately named 'Inspire Sports Village' Luton on the 4th May. The Olympic sized pool certainly inspired Ben to record a 32 seconds time in the 50m Backstroke in the male 15/16 year old Group. Head Coach, Alex Deal, seen in the photo with Ben, said "it was a great day out and we aim to have more swimmers qualify next season". Ambitious plans from the Hadleigh based club which sent a Juniors team to Leiston on the 4th May, swimmers making their debut swim were Harry Searle, Alex Seeley and George and Daniel Nistor, the team was placed third overall. The club will be holding a 'Barn Dance and Hog Roast' in September to raise funds to replace the existing starting blocks which are at least thirty years old, details to follow in the next issue of the News Letter. The club is open to offers of sponsorship so if there is a company interested please contact

Hadleigh Castings 3 - Celotex Meerkats 4 This Annual Charity Football Match, in aid of a party for Children with Special Needs, well organised by the legendary Melvin “Cat” Oxford, was played out in a jovial atmosphere in front of a sizeable crowd, at Layham Road Community Ground on Saturday 4th May. Castings started well, but after 45mins the score was still at 0-0. This gave Melvin time to tweak his team with a few changes during half-time. Castings went on the attack after the break, Stuart Hagger just flashing a shot past the post. However the deadlock was broken in the 48th minute, when Dave Willis slotted the ball home to put Castings in front. In the 53rd minute Chris Cowans equalised from the penalty spot after being upended on jinxing run, only for Castings to retake the lead in the 73rd minute, when Billy Wilding produced a great cross for Chris Harvey to head home. In the 81st minute Celotex were awarded a free kick after hitting Castings with a counter attack. Chris Cowans once again showing his class by dispatching it into the top corner of the net. Chris Cowans continued to thwart the efforts of the Castings boys, by getting a breakaway goal in the 87th minute, and another to add to his hat trick in the 88th minute. Both could be attributed to the tiredness in the Castings ranks. However heads did not drop and after continuing to take the game to Celotex were Castings were rewarded when a Dave Willis cross was headed into his own net by a Celotex defender on 89minutes. Final Result Hadleigh Castings 3 Celotex, Meerkats 4. Man of the Match was awarded to Chris Cowans of Celotex, with much promise shown by Stuart Hagger and Chris Harvey for Castings.

Sponsored by Hadleigh Tyre Group The First XI have made an excellent start to life in Division 1 of the Two Counties Championship, with three wins out of five putting them in the higher reaches of the table. Player of the month has to be Marlon Dias, who has scored over 250 runs already including 61 not out against Elmstead and 92 not out when Josh Davey’s team put down a marker against highly fancied Coggeshall, chasing 180 for the loss of just two wickets. While Australian Luke Ibbs is still acclimatising to playing in five jumpers, he is proving useful with the ball and giving Josh plenty of options. There are several theories for the team’s good form, from playing three spinners in May to an intensive winter training regime, but there could be another factor – a diet of Haribo snakes and cola bottles which have been rapidly disappearing from behind the bar into the dressing room. Not since the jelly bean scandal at The Oval in 2007 has confectionery played such a prominent role in a cricket team’s performance. Other teams have had mixed fortunes – the Seconds have struggled a little with the weather, player availability and wasted journeys to games already cancelled, and the Sunday 1st XI have also found some of their opposition to be weaker than expected. The withdrawal of Lavenham from the league has further depleted their already limited fixture list. Hopefully last week’s clash with Sudbury (too late for this report) proved a more worthy encounter. The rules governing selection for the Sunday Second XI – you must be either under 15, over 40 or have Tampion as your surname – seem to be working well. It was certainly a tale of two Tampions against Battisford recently, as 11-year old Aaron returned figures of 5-1-6-3, while his slightly more experienced uncle Buster bowled five overs, no maidens, 1-52. Don’t forget the bar is open every Saturday afternoon from 1pm on match days – serving teas and coffees, ice creams and with special beer promotions.

Hadleigh United Football Club Sponsored by Hadleigh Tyre Group & Toppesfield Ltd The final weeks of last season saw plenty of action for all three teams. The first team ended in a respectable position in the middle of the league table following the superb run in the F.A. Vase which ended at the quarter final stage. The best performance in these latest games was a great win by four goals to one against Wisbech at the Millfield. There was also a good performance at Godmanchester when we earned a draw after being two goals behind at the interval. Two matches against Diss ended with a win and a draw but a game at Cambridge was lost. Our Thurlow Nunn youth team had a fine season which began badly but improved greatly as the players gained experience in the second half of the campaign. The season ended with three away trips which brought a win at Witham followed by defeats at Clacton and Cornard. Several of these youngsters will still be eligible for youth football next season so hopefully we will see them at the Millfield once again. No doubt some who will be too old will be kept on to plat adult football at the weekends for the Reserves or perhaps the first team. The Reserves ended the season by winning the Peel Cup after playing three games in the last fortnight of the season. Grundisburgh Reserves were beaten by four goals with Kyle Cassell scoring all of them. The next round saw us away against Tacket Street Old Boys where we won by three goals to one with Harry Evans getting a hat-trick on a very wet night in Ipswich. That success put or Reserves into the final where we met Cranes Reserves at Woodbridge. A good number of travelling supporters made the trip and our team responded with a splendid display to win by two goals to one with all goals coming in the first half. An early effort from Kyle Cassell gave Hadleigh an opening goal while a header by Gary Burdett increased the lead. Cranes reduced the deficit just before half time but no more goals were scored in the second period. The Annual General Meeting will be on Sunday 16th June at the Millfield, start time 11.00am.

Hadleigh United Youth Penalty Final 2013 Hadleigh United’s first team home fixture against Wisbech Town hosted the Youth Penalty Competition for 2013. Players from all age groups competed on the main pitch at half time to win the Shield and a pair of FA Cup Final tickets kindly donated by the Club. All the boys should be proud as we witnessed some superb penalties taken and a great atmosphere. In the end it all came down to a nail biting sudden death shoot out between Ollie Herbig from the Under 9’s and Curtis Harvey from the Under 10’s, with Curtis scoring the next 2 to be crowned ‘2013 Youth Penalty Champion’ by Phil Longman.

Forge Garage Hintlesham

Hadleigh United Under 10’s







A fantastic season comes to a close and the boys should be very proud of their achievements this season. Some superb performances and teamwork by both A + B teams this season and combined only 7 defeats in the 40 league games, which has seen them finish in the Top 4 of both divisions in the very strong South Suffolk Youth League. Plans are already progressing in preparation for next season and squad numbers have increased to enable us to continue with all the boys into 9 a side for 2013/14 as we step up in pitch size and bring in the offside rule! We would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy of Ipswich Motorglass and Celotex for their Sponsorship this season for support with Kit, also to Andy for supporting the end of season entertainment of Laser Quest and Bowling, thoroughly enjoyed by the entire squad.
