Historic Challenge Tennis Match

On Sunday 26th June, Hadleigh Tennis Club will play Bildeston Tennis Club in a Men’s doubles match, re-enacting a match that was first played on Tuesday 8th July 1881 yes! 1881 - 130 years ago. Details of the original match appeared in last month’s ‘Hadleigh Community News’. This special event for both clubs will also include a Ladies doubles match. To celebrate 130 Years of tennis in Hadleigh there will also be a professionally catered barbeque lunch for players, supporters and spectators. Players, and we hope supporters, will dress in costume

appropriate for the era of the original match - something perhaps as seen in the photograph that appears with this article. The programme for the day ; 10:15 Players assemble for a commemorative photograph. 10:30 The first matches take place and continue over three rounds. 12:45 Barbeque begins and continues during the afternoon. Presentation of trophies. 14.45 In 1881 the match was won by Hadleigh 4 sets to 2. I wonder what the outcome will be 130 years on. The event is open to all who wish to attend and both clubs would welcome your support, so please come along and enjoy an entertaining day. It is not everyday that you get a chance to support a local sporting event with such an historic connection. Sunday 26th June is the middle Sunday of the Wimbledon fortnight. Wimbledon was only established as a tennis club in 1877, it is quite amazing to think that Hadleigh and Bildeston were also playing matches soon after. If you would like to take advantage of the barbeque pre-book your tickets at £5.00 calling 01473 822919, or sending an email to: (please - bring your own drinks on the day).

Melford Hall and a Passionate Woman Until 1960 only the resident family, their relatives, invited and uninvited rich, famous and powerful guests passed through the massive wooden front door of Melford Hall. Thanks to the Hyde Parkers, who have been residents for Hilary Ferry with her Fidelis generations, the National Trust visitors at Melford Hall acquired the property in that year, allowed the family to reside in part of it and opened the rest of this imposing house and gardens to the public. Accompanied by a passionate, enthusiastic National Trust volunteer and fellow club member, Hilary Ferry, the ladies of Fidelis recently visited this historical stately abode. Having first visited the Church on the hill the group returned to discover more about the Hall’s chequered history and the families who have lived there. The house has had its fair share of famous visitors from Elizabeth 1 to Beatrix Potter together with several distinguished and not so distinguished naval dignitaries who once resided there. Past and present day residents have all contributed something to its current majestic appearance whether it be an odd man-made column or two or the complete remodelling of the wing devastated by fire in 1942. The recently refurbished Park Room with its magnificent view provided the perfect spot for the group’s final stop for tea and delicious homemade cakes. Several days later the ladies car pooled their way to the New Wolsey Theatre and thoroughly enjoyed a moving but entertaining performance of Passionate Woman. Actress Kay Mellor enthralled the audience in her own play about her mother. Jan Devey

The Key to a Happy Move

T h e Es t at e A g e nt Helping you with your move, not just your sale!

Hadleigh & District Angling Society

Telephone Community News on 01473 823366

One of our distinctions and indeed our passion is the fact that we are as involved in our clients’ move as we are in the sale itself. Certainly, for most people the property into which they are moving is a lot more exciting than the property they are about to leave. Yet on moving day itself, we find that some agents have lost interest in the event! They are guaranteed their commission and are already focussing their attentions on other sales. What a shame, and what a lost opportunity to provide a service level that could change people’s perceptions of the stereotypical estate agent. We believe estate agency is service-related more than it is property-related. How we facilitate the whole moving process illustrates this. For example, whereas most agents will simply hand you the key if you care to drive to their office, a good agent will meet the new owners at the property with the keys and will make sure they work properly. There is nothing worse than having been given the wrong set of keys with the removers keen to get cracking starting to pile your personal possessions on the front lawn! Once inside, a good agent will help you check the property over, read the electricity, gas and water meters with you, and clear away any unwanted post that might need redirecting. They should also provide a sheet of redirection labels and be happy to put you in touch with any tradesmen you might require. Going further than this (and we believe Elizabeth Valda Estates are the only agents in the Boxford and surrounding areas to do any of the above), we have recently introduced a key-holding service. Rather than you having to take a morning off work to await delivery of your new washing machine, or even if you lock yourself out, we can permanently and securely hold a spare key for such eventualities, making your enjoyment of your new home even more relaxed.

Lucy Harwood Lucy Harwood was born on the 1st of January 1893 to a family of solid respectability and comfortable means, at Belstead Hall, near Ipswich. In 1904 the family moved to Ackworth House, East Bergholt. Before the First World War she attended classes at the Slade School of Fine Art. After the war, she suffered a stroke following an operation for appendicitis, which paralyzed the righthand side of her body, she then had to learn to use her left hand , and she walked with a pronounced limp all her life. Lucy practised drawing with her left hand but did not try to paint using oils until she joined the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing which had been started in Dedham 1937 by Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett Haines. She became one of the School’s first and longest serving students. In 1939 the School burnt down. Cedric Morris and Lett Haines moved to Benton End, on the outskirts of Hadleigh. In 1940 she moved to Kiln House in the village of Upper Layham, to continue her association with the school. At Benton End she became an institution. She presided over Sunday afternoon tea for most of the rest of her life. She painted almost every day in all kind of weathers, and she took all her paintings to be criticised by her teachers, Lett and Cedric. Post war, Lucy took short summer holidays away in Europe, returning laden with freshly painted canvases. She wrote a very full and entertaining history of her own life, the events in the village and the life of the School at Benton End, in a diary that fills more than 28 volumes from 1944 until her death in 1972.

Bentwaters Cold War Museum have been gifted a Lightning fighter by BAE Systems from its company's factory at Rochester, Kent. The aeroplane originally flew with the Royal Saudi Air Force in the late 1960's through to 1986 followed by a period in a salvage yard before a full restoration at Rochester was carried out. The only British built fighter to exceed twice the speed of sound the Lightning's role was air defence and frequently was scrambled to intercept Soviet aircraft sent to spy and probe the UK airspace. Though hampered by poor range due its thirsty engines and limited radar and weapons control, RAF pilots would regularily beat much more modern aeroplanes in combat training excercises and it has been sorely missed since retirement in 1988. Painted in 56(F) Squadron colours typical of Lightnings that were based at Wattisham in Suffolk and were a familiar sight in East Anglain skies, BCWM were only too pleased to accept the offer of this iconic cold war jet when a lack of funds for its unkeep meant that a new home had to be found. Transporting the Lightning required it to be dismantled and carrying out this task on such a large airframe is not easy and the Lightning especially presents difficulties which has led some museums to cut through sections instead. "The wings are not being cut. We like to do things correctly where possible and cutting the wings was never really an option for us." said BCWM chairman Graham Haynes. The fin, cockpit, wings, tailplanes, missile pack, belly tank sections and other panels will all be removed to facilitate transport back to the new Suffolk home of ZF581 where she will join Hunter GA11 XE707 and, following their respective restorations, Sepecat Jaguar GR.1A XX741 and Gloster Meteor F.8 WH453. Bentwaters Cold War Museum is open the first & third Sundays of the month from Easter to end October and Bank Holiday Sundays and Mondays, more details can be found at

Can you help? Suffolk and Essex Small Animal Welfare is appealing for volunteers to help at essential fund raising events. Based in Leavenheath, SESAW is dedicated to the care and re-homing of sick and abandoned animals. This work would be impossible without the generosity of the public and tireless support of helpers. The charity is holding several sales in June and a few pairs of extra hands would lighten the load for the existing hard working team. Apart from running a stall and serving refreshments, goods have to be transported to and from the venue. Another important task is collecting money at local supermarkets which is done in relays of one or two hours. If you feel you can give just a few hours once or twice a month please phone 01206 799424. SESAW will be at the Long Melford British Legion Hall from 12.30 to 3pm on 5th June and the United Reform Church Hall Coffee Morning in Sudbury between 10 and midday on 11th June. The Anchor in Stratford St. Mary is holding a Late Risers Boot Sale for SESAW on 18th June from midday to 3pm. Pitches are only £5 - book early to avoid disappointment on 01206 322143.

Athlete’s foot is a very common skin infection of the bottom of the feet caused by a fungus called tinea pedis. When the feet stay warm, moist and become irritated the fungus can thrive and infect the upper layers of the skin. Fungal infections can occur anywhere in the body including scalp, trunk, extremeties, hands feet, nails, groin etc. But here we will just look at the feet. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot can be found in many locations including floors in gyms, swimming pools, nail salons, airport security lines, showers, shoes, socks and one can acquire the fungus from walking barefoot in these areas or by direct person to person contact. Some people are more prone to getting the infection than others.However, acquiring the fungus is not sufficient to get the infection. It also needs proper growing conditions – a warm moist environment. Upto 70% of the population may have athlete’s foot at some time during their lives. Most people with athlete’s foot have no symptoms at all and may not even know they have an infection. Many may think they have dry skin on the soles of their feet. Common symptoms of athlete’s foot include varying degrees of itching and burning. The skin at the bottom of the feet may look dry and peel and in particularly severe cases there may be some cracking, pain, and bleeding as well. Rarely athelete’s foot can cause skin to blister. The dry skin may spread to the sides and the top of the feet. The space between the fourth and fifth toes may also have moisture, peeling and dry skin. The toenails can become infected and they may also be need to be treated to prevent athlete’s foot recurring. The treatment for athlete’s foot can be divided into two parts. The first and most important part is to make the infected area less suitable for the athlete’s fungus to grow. This means keeping the area clean and dry. Wearing cotton socks, leather shoes or sandals allows the skin of the feet to remain dry whereas materials such as vinyl used in trainer’s cause the feet to become moist and encourage the growth of the fungus. Using medicated powders such as mycil, on the feet and in the shoes can also help to keep the feet dry. The second part of the treatment is using an antifungal medicine. There are many types available – Clotrimazole (Canestan), Miconazole (Daktarin), Terbinafine (Lamisil) and Ketoconazole (Daktarin gold). Duration of the treatment can vary from a single treatment to several weeks. It is very important that athlete’s foot is treated as otherwise the fungal infection can spread to other parts of the body. If you think you have any of the symptoms mentioned above and are unsure as to the best course of treatment just pop down to our pharmacy and our pharmacists will be able to advise you in complete confidence in our totally private consultation room. Taj West is the Superintendent Pharmacist at Mill Pharmacy located within the Hadleigh Health Centre

The 2011 Montane ‘Lakeland 50’ In Aid Of Xanthe Carter The Lakeland 50 Ultra tour of the Lake District is one of the greatest ULTRA RUNNING challenges in Europe. Set within the spectacular Lakeland fells the route starts at the northern end of Ullswater within the grand Dalemain Estate & takes in Haweswater, Kentmere, Ambleside, Langdale & Tilberthwaite before the final climb & descent to the finish at Coniston. Totalling 50 MILES & 11,000 FEET of ascent of tough Lakeland trails, competitors must visit 6 checkpoints on route & complete the event within the time limit of 24 hours. Competitors must carry all their own equipment , food & drink with no outside assistance allowed. Starting at 12 noon this means competitors must face navigation & running through the night to complete within the time limit! The Lakeland 50 is a huge challenge, it requires commitment, drive & the ability to ‘just keeping going’ when most would ‘just rather not’. This year I will be competing in the Lakeland 50 to raise money for a very brave little local girl XANTHE CARTER from Upper Layham. All money raised will go directly to help fund on going intensive 1:1 physiotherapy, speech and language therapy to help Xanthe’s rehabilitation following her contracting pneumcoccal meningitis & suffering a major stroke when only 9 months old. The after effects of her illness have been devastating, but in typical style she Is battling through thanks to the tremendous skill, support & endless devotion of her loving parents & brother Jessie, Hugo & Milo. The journey will be a long & hard one, but we know she will get there. Already she is getting stronger & the results of initial intensive therapy are very encouraging. Everything raised will help to make a big difference for a remarkable little girl! Many thanks for your kind support. Any contribution will make a BIG difference!

Howard unwinding at the grand My dear readers, it is usually the happier things in life that I am able to share with you in an effort to brighten us all. Unfortunately, I have sad news this month and I feel that I know you well enough to share with you. My father, Paul, who has been feeling quite unwell since Christmas has been diagnosed with secondary cancer in the liver. This has been such a shock to us all and we are trying to do our best for my father. I know that many of my clients for one reason and another lose touch with their family. I can identify with that. We had not seen my brother in twenty years and had never met his daughters. The situation was reversed on both counts in one week. I can truly say that my mother and I have had to cope with some traumatic days. Our dealings with Ipswich Hospital can best be described as “difficult”. I had to find out details of the Consultant from MacMillan Nurses, we had to press the Consultant to even meet or examine my father and our experiences on the Ward were troublesome until I had had an hour and a half meeting with the Matron. Too many Staff and Departments misdirected. My father is having a number of days at St Elizabeth Hospice which is a charitable establishment which is wonderful in its arrangement and excellent in its care and understanding. Do always support it. Tragedy arrives unannounced and without appointment. My experience underlines the need to have all your affairs in order whether that be Wills, Powers of Attorney, details of your assets and such like. Turning to lighter things. Some weeks ago my mother, father and I were returning from an excellent cinema organ concert in Ipswich one Sunday afternoon. We were in one of my special vehicles flying my standard as it was a lovely day. As we approached Polstead, a chap called “William” popped out and flagged us down. After enquiring whether we were “special” (which of course we are) he delighted us with jolly banter which really made our afternoon. Surprises do happen and I very much pray that miracles do too.

Trevor’s customers have been very impressed with his convenient, quick and cost-effective method of weed control, which is hassle free and can cost less than the Do It Yourself alternative. In addition, customers have been able to allow pets and children to play safely in the garden following weed elimination treatment. Trevor’s Garden Services provides the ideal solution to long term weed termination. Using a special, full-strength Pro Biactive formula, Trevor can easily control your annual and perennial grass problems, as well as those annoying broad-leaved weeds. Trevor also recommends this special formula, 360g/lt glyphosate (which is unavailable in everyday retail outlets) for clearing out-of-control weedy ground prior to planting or sowing. We had such a fantastic response to our article last month advertising our professional spraying services we are booking up fast, so if you have areas of block paving or driveways, patios and paths, or a plot of ground or paddock that’s wild with weeds, call Trevor on 01473 824315 or 07850 630389 to find out more about how you can make your weeds go away the easy way!

Keen on French? (or not so keen, but would like some help?) If either case applies, then look no further! Some of you may know me (Christine Scott Fox) already, as I have been helping students and adults alike from Hadleigh and the surrounding areas to improve the standard of their spoken and written French for the past 15 years or so. I am half French, and first started working 30 years ago as a professional translator from and into French - a service that I still provide, along with a telephone service for booking hotels etc – then branching out to include French tuition catering for all levels and ages from 14 upwards. I am a great believer in the unique advantages and the extra confidence that one-toone tuition provides. It also means that the hour isn’t geared to anyone else’s requirements – just your own. So, if you are working towards a GCSE, A’ Level, or a degree, have a specific area of business French that you’d like to get to grips with, or you just would enjoy being able to chat to les français you come across here or on holiday, then check out the ad below, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Well Ye Bowled Joan Ashard - formally of The Bank House, High Street, and wife of John Ashard - died on Easter day 2011. She passed away very peacefully after a long illness - she fought Alzheimer's disease bravely to the end. John and Joan were both very active members of H.A.D.S. - Joan played Mrs Sowerberry in 'Oliver!' - with her son, Robert Ashard in the lead and John pulling the curtain. They were both members of Hadleigh Bowls Club. Joan taught in the local primary school and also was a member of the Red Cross. The funeral service was held at Ipswich Crematorium on May 16th 2011 with refreshments afterwards in the Hadleigh Guildhall garden. Sister to Margaret Fox, Grandmother to Joshua and Ezetie King and Mother of Robert and Lizzy Ashard.

Organised by the charity LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) it encourages farms across the country to open their gates to give the general public the chance to meet the farmers who grow their food and care for the country side. As members of LEAF Hollow Trees Farm at Semer have been part of Open Farm Sunday since it began and once again we are looking forward to an exciting day. On Sunday 12th June 2011 there will be NO admission charge on the farm trail for the day, so a walk around the cows, sheep, pigs and chickens will be absolutely free or if you choose you can make a donation to our chosen charity*. There will be TRAILER RIDES making their way around the fields and the farm every hour throughout the day. The rides will have commentary that will illustrate how Hollow Trees Farm balances its livestock, vegetable production, arable and environmental schemes. The rides will be a charged at £1 per person with all proceeds going to our village church All Saints Church, Semer. There will be a BBQ with beef burgers and hot dogs available. All made from meat produced on the farm. *Each year we have chosen a charity to support throughout this day, last year over £400 was raised for East Anglian Children Hospices Tree House Appeal. This year we are raising funds for our small but beautiful village church, All Saints Semer. We do hope you will join us for the day.

Birch Farm, Hintlesham Celebrate 20 Years In Childcare Richard and Diana Bryce diversified from farming into childcare in 1991. The nursery started with just 35 places, all located within a newly converted stable block. Due to the number of children attending, more rooms were added in 1996 within the large farm barn, creating another 16 places. Later that year an indoor heated swimming pool was added, to accommodate both swimming lessons and family swims. With the change in families working requirements, a holiday club was started offering care for children from 2½ to 10 years every school holiday, full or part time sessions available. In 1999, a newly built, homely baby room was added to support parents that found themselves returning to work earlier together with a new larger welcoming area for parents. To compliment the childcare facilities, in 2003 a new complex housing a spacious activity centre, new changing facilities for swimmers, large cafe and open plan kitchen was opened. The activity centre is open to the public for children 5 and under and also offers children’s parties up to 12 years – play, swimming or cooking. The complex also provides ballet for pre and school children up to 8 years and a meeting room available for hire. The new complex has allowed swimming lessons to operate Monday to Saturday, offer open swim sessions for adults and parent and toddler, swimming parties and private hire. In the past 2 years Birch Farm has continued to grow in all areas. The nursery can now offer 100 childcare places, yet still retains the homely environment created by the incorporation of many different learning areas in each age group. The activity centre now has the addition of an outside area ideal for warmer days. Throughout the development of Birch Farm, Richard and Diana have endeavoured to offer the highest of standards, achieved by constantly monitoring and improving the facilities, as well as having the support of an excellent team of staff, of which there are now 42! The creation of Birch Farm has been extremely hard work and Richard and Diana would like to thank everyone that has helped and supported them along their journey, to achieve what is now an exceptional facility for children and their families.

Choose your passwords with care. Or else! The leak of personal data from about 100 million user accounts of its PlayStation Network has caused Sony acute embarrassment and a great deal of money. Apparently no passwords were leaked but that is little consolation because there seem to be leaks which include password data on a regular basis. Many, if not most, people use the same password for multiple accounts online. This is, of course, not a great idea because the leak of one password can affect your whole life. One password used for email, social networks and banking is a recipe for disaster. Choosing a password which is hard to guess but easy to remember is not that hard but there are some key things to remember: 1. Don't use passwords that are based on personal information that can be easily accessed or guessed. 2. Don't use words that can be found in any dictionary of any language. 3. Develop a mnemonic for remembering complex passwords. 4. Use both lowercase and capital letters. 5. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. 6. Use passphrases when you can. 7. Use different passwords on different systems. There are applications such as Password Safe which is free and available from which allow you to keep all of your passwords secure and in one place under the control of a single master password. They can generate strong new passwords and manage your old passwords. Don’t do what I once did and forget the master password! In the meantime for any help and advice contact Nick Kotarski 07790 842 968 / 01206 299 568 or visit

Stepping through the ‘communicating doors’ she finds herself back in time, to 1994, confronting Rouella, the second wife, and when Rouella finds herself further back in time, in 1974, with the first wife, she decides it’s time to rewrite the future. Boxford Drama Group presents Communicating Doors at Boxford Village Hall from June 16 to 18 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £13.00 and includes, as usual, a delicious supper, with the option of a £7.00 ticket without supper on June 16 only, available from Boxford’s newsagent.

Do you a) Take a pain killer and hope for the best? b) Get yourself onto anti-depressants and keep on going? or c) Book yourself a professional consultation, which I can offer at Holon, and get to the root of the problem?

1000 Miles EACH!

Brantham’s Garage Sale Day

Two local lads are waving good bye to their families for 12 days to embark on an epic cycle ride in aid of East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH). Spurred on by a smaller fund raiser for EACH last year of just 100 miles, Dan Moat of Layham and Chris Wigglesworth of Willisham decided to raise the bar considerably to try and raise a remarkable £11,000 which whilst a huge sum will only fund the hospices for one day. Asked about his involvement Dan said “Anyone who knows me will immediately be thinking there must be a typo with the name or there is another leaner, fitter Dan Moat being referred to! really is me! Perhaps now you understand just how ridiculously hard this trip is going to be for me. In October last year, I mentioned to Chris that I fancied a challenge and that a ride from London to Paris (c300 miles) was coming up in 2011 and would he like to do it with me? Chris had clearly been thinking of cycling the UK end to end for some time as he immediately said he wanted to tackle something more Dover to Cape Wrath was born. I have only been cycling since June last year and am still completely daunted by the task ahead” As it turns out, this journey will now have extra significance for Dan, as directly afterwards he will be emigrating to take up a new role for his company in North America – “This will be a tough challenge but a great opportunity to see my country close up for a final time” he said. To help raise funds, Chris and Dan are appealing for donations and sponsors. They will add your company full colour logo to their white cycle shirts and advertise you mercilessly for 1000 miles over 12 days with space available from as little as 25p per mile! They would love to have your support, so please drop them a line to be a sponsor or feel free to make a donation through the just giving website no matter how big or small - every penny counts! All the details are on their website: “We will be blogging and twittering our way across the country” commented Chris “so please feel free to get in touch and add your support – it will be a much needed lift to us after a long day in the saddle”. Remember – it costs £11,000 to run the hospices for just one day. So help them over the next few weeks to reach their goal and make their journey worthwhile, you can get involved by going to:

Hadleigh Gardens Personal Thoughts As I write this the main thought for most gardeners (and farmers) is the absence of significant rain. I am already having to do some watering mainly of vegetable and fruit crops, but also of some shallow rooted plants like Phlox. A lot of perennial plants are growing slowly because of the lack of water. If you do water remember that a good soak once a week is much better than 7 daily sprinkles. The sprinkle will evaporate quickly, and attract roots to the surface where they will suffer more. The other topic that concerns me at the moment is potting compost. For several years I have tried to minimise my use of peat, and have tried to use peat free composts. This year when I needed some potting compost I went to Partridges, Buyright, and Bypass Nurseries, and none of them had a peat free compost on sale, so I had to go back to a standard peat based product. Subsequently I found that Bypass Nurseries are now offering one, which I am trying. The peat free products do vary depending on what they are made from, and often need different amounts of watering. I would like to get used to a product and then use it year after year, but what I find is that each year the products on offer are different. It is government policy to totally phase out peat in composts by 2030, and there are active discussions at the moment about intermediate targets with the possibility that peat in composts will be phased out for amateurs earlier than professionals. My largest use for potting compost is in the 12" pots that I use for tomatoes, and for this purpose I make my own from garden soil, compost from my compost heaps and sharp sand.

Weather Records In April 2.4 mm (0.09") of rain fell at Kersey which is the lowest monthly rainfall since I started getting figures from Kate in 1997. It makes the 3 month running figure 53.8 mm (2.1") which is a near record low for the same period. It is only beaten by a figure of 52.9 mm in October 2003. So far May is dry so this figure will probably be beaten next month. In April the maximum temperature was 26 Cel (79F), and the minimum was 3 Cel (37F). So April was very warm with no frosts. In my garden the ground temperature in mid April is 13 Cel (55 F) which is slightly warmer than average. Hints As you walk around your garden watch out for problems, and catch them before they get out of hand. I do use various sprays some times, but not very often. A lot of pests can be disposed of by hand or foot, with less effort than it takes to get the insecticide. Slugs seem to love to drown themselves in beer. I personally find the fungus diseases more difficult than the other pests, and this is where I do tend to spray. For example with black spot on roses one can pick off the odd leaf and burn it, but if there are a lot the only answers are to spray, or to stop growing the plant. Tomatoes are quite widely grown, but beginners often get confused about how they should be managed. There are two types "indeterminate" and "determinate". These terms describe the way in which they grow. In 18

Telephone Community News on 01473 823366

"indeterminate" varieties a shoot will grow continuously. This makes it easy to grow the plant as a single stem, by taking off the side shoots when they are small. If you are short of plants the side shoots can be rooted as cuttings. In a determinate variety the top of the shoot will stop growing naturally. This means that the plant will naturally form a small bush with out any shoot removal. Most greenhouse varieties are indeterminate and side shoots should be removed otherwise the plant will try to form a very large bush. Most outdoor varieties are determinate. John Rye

Hadleigh & District Garden Club We welcomed Andrew Hellman one of the team that run Hyde Hall R.H.S. Gardens, on May 9th, to give us a talk and show us slides of the gardens transition from the original owners concept and design to the hugely enlarged area it now covers! It has changed from a moderately domestic garden to what will be a pretty vast area including woodland as well as the more usual planting of roses, herbaceous boarders, shrubs, trees, exotics and of course water. They are now well into planting literally thousands of trees each year which involves the difficult task of keeping every one watered, weeded and generally fussed over for three years. The water situation spawned a pretty large reservoir which now meets their needs and is filled up by draining all their spare surface water into it rather than having to take ground water. There are now lots of new areas to explore, including the “Queen Mother Garden” and I am sure those of us who visit on 21st June, will thoroughly enjoy that angle, (even if we’ve visited often before) this new phase, which also includes a dry garden that is never watered. Of course those keen on retail therapy, the new visitor centre with shop and plant centre will be fully open to cater for their needs as well as licensed restaurant and cafe. Our June 13th meeting will be a talk on composting and care of the soil. At this meeting there will be a competition for a vase of flowers of between 5 and 10 stems and must comprise of at least two different kinds of plants not just varieties of the same plant. No berries or seed heads may be used and it must be viewed all round For more information phone Ruth Allen 822323

Dear Sir

Please write to: Kelvin Avis 68 High Street, Hadleigh, Ipswich IP7 5EF or email:

Dear Sir I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people in the Hadleigh South Ward who voted for me. I feel greatly honoured to have been elected as Councillor for the Ward on 5th May and am most grateful to you. I would also like to thank Brian Riley, Conservative Councillor for Hadleigh North, who kindly helped me during my campaign. I tried to visit as many homes as possible prior to the election, but some people were out and I was unable to visit everyone, so if I did not meet you I apologise. If you wish to meet me in the future, or have a problem you need to discuss, please feel free to contact me. There are various ways you can do that; along with Brian Riley, I will be holding a monthly surgery at the library on the second Saturday of the month from 11am – 12 noon. The first one will be 11th June. My email address and telephone number can be accessed via the Babergh web site or by calling the Babergh office. Meeting so many residents during the run-up to the election gave me the opportunity to listen to your concerns. Now I have been elected as Councillor, the work will begin to do my best to serve the community and take action to remedy those concerns where possible. Kathryn Grandon, District Councillor for Hadleigh South

Dear Sir I was just wondering if you could do a special mention in your next issue for the George pub. Me and my new husband had our wedding meal there on Saturday 23rd April and they were absolutely brilliant and so kind and generous. We had found out a week before our wedding that unfortunately we had been conned by a dodgy photographer and lost £500 that we had paid him. The managers at the George had heard about this and all of their staff very kindly donated £100 to us towards a new photographer. We were so touched by this and think it is such a lovely gesture and shows what a nice village Hadleigh is to live in. Mr and Mrs Sutton

One hears a lot these days of indifferent, indeed, poor service that I felt I must tell you of the wonderful service given to us by a local company. We have recently had two new carpets laid by A. J. Carpets (Kevin) of the High Street. Kevin came and measured up for us, gave us a price, told us not to worry about a thing. At the appointed time two young men turned up and in less than an hour they had removed the old carpet, first removing all the furniture! They then swept the floor before laying the new one. They even vacuumed the new carpet before putting back into place the furniture. Never have I seen two young men work so fast! Well done all at A. J. Carpets. Pat Woodberry

Dear Sir With your permission, I would like to announce an event at Crabtrees Cafe Bar, Hadleigh, on the 18th of June 2011 at 8.00 pm where we shall see a clean shaven Paul Lane emerge, as he serves his punishment for Impersonating ‘Santa’, ‘Fidel Castro’, 2 Members of ‘ZZ Top’ and the ‘Wild Man of Borneo’. All for a very good cause, the reward will be split two ways, ‘The Woolverstone Wish Fund’ and ‘Lupus UK’. Sponsor Forms can be found in various shops and stores in Hadleigh Town. Let us see how much can be raised by the good people in the Hadleigh Community News readership for these two charities. John E Caley

Dear Sir In the last issue of the Community News Daniel Quinlan voiced his concern about Hadleigh Town Council contributing £30,000 per annum to supporting the new Community Facility adjoining the Swimming Pool. The money that has been put aside annually was intended as a contribution towards a New Swimming pool at a time when it seemed that the Hadleigh Pool was going to be closed. However the pool now has a commitment from Babergh for it’s continuation and that is well identified by the investment of some £500,000 in rebuilding the changing rooms and the new heating plant. I have been a daily user of the pool for some 15 years, and before that was involved in raising money for the pool to be built and my children learned to swim there, so I am personally well aware of the facilities it offers and the changes we have seen over the last few years. Since South Suffolk Leisure Trust have been running the pool at Hadleigh and Kingfisher both pools have seen investments and in Hadleigh we have enjoyed not only the new changing rooms but a warmer and cleaner pool and surroundings. Like most other residents in Hadleigh I complained bitterly over the loss of East House whilst appreciating it was probably not the ideal building for to-days community use, and objected to it’s potential sale, putting Hadleigh money into the Babergh coffers Now Babergh are showing a commitment to Hadleigh in building a new Community Facility including a Fitness Centre which will help with the finances of the Community part of the development and the Swimming Pool. So why are residents complaining that they are getting a new, fit for purpose, building. Mr Quinlan disputes South Suffolk Leisure’s financial viability. As a Trustee of South Suffolk Leisure (a voluntary position with absolutely no ‘perks’) I am well aware of its’ financial state, I would not have been prepared to work with them if I believed they had financial problems. There are a number of organisations in Hadleigh providing services for our young people but there are not enough facilities available to the 900 or so young people in the town, or for seven days a week. Regardless of what Mr Qunilan suggests Hadleigh Town Council has looked carefully and frequently at the accommodation for possible use of our youth and there is no other space that can be designated for their dedicated use For years Hadleigh Town Council have provided the sporting facilities at Layham Road, which cost a basic £15,000 per annum plus vast amounts more from time to time for repairs or improvements to the facilities there. These facilities are well used but by a fairly limited section of the population. Why are there complaints then that the Town Council is prepared to financially support the new community facility which have the potential to be used by all ages and abilities.? I am probably better known for knocking Babergh than praising them, but this is an occasion when I a prepared to say Thank You for putting money back into Hadleigh, in this development. Jan Byrne

Boxford Village Hall Goes Pink! As I am sure you will have noticed, during the Easter week the Village Hall underwent an amazing transformation from a dirty yellow to a clean pink. This was only possible due to an amazing amount of effort from a small band of volunteers. Two people in particular, who wished to remain anonymous, gave up their time in the weeks before the Easter weekend to ensure the walls had been scrubbed of all the dirt and green accumulated over many years. These same people then worked tirelessly to paint the rear and one side of the hall in the week before Easter. Due to their tremendous work, on Good Friday, one of the hottest days of the year so far, 3 members of the committee and 3 other volunteers were able to concentrate on painting the front and gable ends of the hall. It was a tremendous effort by all concerned and for which I thank them all very much. A thank you needs to go to Carl for the tremendous work he did in making good the walls on the steps and alongside the slope, which has greatly improved the appearance of the hall. Also to Buildbase who not only supplied a tower free of charge to enable us to reach the tops of the gable ends but also persuaded ICI to donate 50% of the paint that was required. Fundraising for installation of the Disabled toilet has continued with Sharon Ireland giving a wonderful and very tasty Pampered Chef evening. This was followed by 12 teams filling the hall for a wonderful music quiz hosted by Peter Norris. Both events were thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended and contributed ÂŁ800 towards the ÂŁ5000 required for this project. Saturday 2nd July will see the Village Hall host an eighties night, again raising funds for the Disabled toilet this is promising to be a very popular evening, if you wish to attend then tickets are available from Boxford News. Finally, Sunday 10th July will also see a fundraising event with a difference and something, which we believe, has never been done on behalf of the hall before. I have persuaded Veronica and Robert to join me in doing an abseil down Ipswich Maternity block. I suspect that this will be made that bit harder because neither Veronica or I are keen on extreme heights! To ensure we do not back out at the last minute, please do your best to sponsor us for as much as you can. You would also be most welcome to come and support us on the day as I am sure we will need all the encouragement possible. We are currently scheduled to begin the descent between 2pm and 3pm.

Mrs Russell Redman 1928 - 2011 A service of thanksgiving for the life of Mrs Redman was held in St. Andrews’s Church, Lower Layham on Wednesday May 11th. Her family, many friends and former colleagues came together to share, during the service and afterwards, many happy memories of a lady who was warmhearted, sincere, caring - and full of fun. She was born and brought up in Cornwall and, after training as a teacher, moved to London. Marriage took her to America, as her husband was in the oil industry. She had a son and a daughter, and, in time, six grandchildren, all much loved. On her return to England in 1974 she settled in Layham and became a valued teacher at Hadleigh High School, remaining there until her retirement. She knew her pupils well as individuals and many found her ready with extra help when they found difficulties. She insisted on good behaviour and hard work, but there was always time in her lessons for enjoyment and a good laugh. Neighbours and friends appreciated her warmth and generosity - with shopping, baking, a listening ear - and countless amusing anecdotes of her adventures and encounters. She had many interests and much energy - books, knitting, travel, and cats (both live and ‘collectables’). All will remember her with gratitude and affection.

News from The Station Dear Readers, Welcome to this months edition of news from the Police Station. In recent months I have spoken in depth about the work we are undertaking with our younger community in the Town, and their involvement with alcohol. This rolling operation is proving highly successful with a variety of types of alcoholic drinks being seized, and parents being visited. To coincide with this, our partners at Babergh District Council inform us that the planned Designated Public Place Order (DPPO) is still in the final stages of discussion, and we hope to have this powerful tool at our disposal by the end of the summer. As regular readers will be aware, this is something that I have personally been working towards for over two years, and I think that it will prove to have a very positive effect on the Town in years to come. Whilst much of our work at the moment is centred on anti-social behaviour, I have to say that the large majority of the Town’s teenagers are respectable and friendly. Whether on or off duty, the teens will come and talk to my colleagues and me about a wide range of topics, and often just want to have a chat. Outside of this work, we have also been engaging with the large amount of farms situated around Hadleigh and the rural areas. By increasing our visibility in this area, and building contacts we hope to reduce the amount of crime that farmers historically experience. I would also like to draw your attention to the yearly crime figures. In my annual report to the Town Council, I have stated that as at 31 March 2010, 342 crimes had been reported to Police in Hadleigh. As at 31 March 2011, only 274 crimes have been reported. This is a reduction of 20%. Your Safer Neighbourhood Team continue to review every crime that occurs in the Town and using our strong base of contacts and intelligence we are able to liaise with our partner agencies and target those people who are likely to commit offences. By taking this structured approach we are able to prevent crimes from occurring. We continue to remain open to engagement with all sections of the community. We can be contacted on our shared email address or by the switchboard number 01473 613500. Of course, you can come to the Police Station to see us, but remember that there is only a station clerk present from 1pm until 3pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Until next time, Matt, PC 1455 Paisley 01473 613500

Babergh District Council is aiming to make the process of paying bills simpler for a number of residents – despite plans to phase out the current service of taking cash, cheques and other payments over the counter at the Hadleigh Council offices. From June 13, the opening hours at the Hadleigh offices for people making payments for Council Tax, rent and other services will be reducing. From this date, the cash office will generally only be open each morning and not all day as has been the case in the past. The Council will then be closing the cash office completely later this year. The phased reduction in opening hours is to give people who currently use the Hadleigh cash office time to get used to the change and find alternative and convenient ways to make payments. In order that this process is as painless as possible for residents who will be affected, staff will be on hand to help them find a suitable alternative for payment and there will be advice leaflets available too. During the coming weeks we will be making contact with the current users of the service to advise about the changes and how else payments can be made in future. Barry Hunter, Babergh’s Director of Finance, said: “While we know there are still a number of people who prefer to pay overthe-counter, the majority of residents throughout the district use direct debit or other ways of paying bills and the number of people who use the service in Hadleigh is comparatively small compared to the cost to run the service. “We have learnt from other councils, many of which have already closed their cash offices, that there are many other very convenient ways of making payments and we will be doing everything possible to ensure any impact or inconvenience for our residents is minimised. “Although the ultimate closure of the cash office will, of course, save money, it also makes good sense to tell people of the many low-cost alternative methods of payment.” The cash office will be closed altogether later this year – in the autumn but until then we will continue to keep it open at its usual times on the busiest days in the month (see below). For customers that still want to pay their Rents or Council Tax in cash we will be able to make alternative arrangements for payments to be made at any Post Office and a number of local shops throughout the Babergh District. From Monday, June 13, the Cash Office will be available from 9am to 2pm each day, with the exception of the following dates when the service will be open all day: Friday, July 1: 9am - 4.30pm Monday, July 4: 9am - 5pm From July 5, the service will be reduced to 9.30am until 12.30pm with the exception of the following dates when again the Cashiers’ Service will be open all day: Monday, August 1: 9am - 5pm Tuesday, August 2: 9am - 5pm Thursday, September 1: 9 am - 5pm Friday, September 2: 9am - 4.30pm If you would like further information on how to pay for any bills and services from Babergh, please call: 01473 825798 or ask at our Customer Service Desk in the Hadleigh Office.

Silver Trophy Win for Stoke Ladies The Stoke By Nayland Ladies Team started their Silver Trophy league fixtures with an away match at Thorndon Park on Tuesday 26th April. This was a difficult opening match against very experienced opposition but the team was quietly confident after intensive coaching by Club Professional Roly Hitchcock and his team. It was encouraging to see Laura Lowe able to play in this first match after recovering from a broken ankle. This proved to be the boost the team needed as she led the field with a 7/6 win. After a tight match, on a course not played before by the majority, it ended with a 3-2 win for Stoke. The next fixture will be at home against Gosfield on Monday 9th May followed by Wanstead away on Sunday 15th May. Team: Laura Lowe, Jude Hanner, Sue Latham, Bev Thompson and Sybil Paton.

The side will be captained by Peter Tampion with Bruce Newbigging Vice Captain. This team will prepare our younger players to represent the adult section. The Academy side travelled to Mellis with five adults and six young players to play their first ever league match against an adult side. On a very warm day, skipper Peter Tampion had no hesitation in electing to bat with 13 year old Dominic Manthorpe opening the innings with his father, Simon. The pair put on 60 before Manthorpe senior was caught in the deep. This brought 13 year old Oliver Carlstroem to the wicket who reached 26 before he was out . Dominic was joined by Andrew Crisp and the pair put on useful quick runs, Dominic carried his bat achieving his maiden century for the club, through a combination of sensible shot selection and strong hitting. Hadleigh reaching 209 for the loss of five wickets. Hadleigh's opening bowlers were two 14 year olds, Reece Crisp and Ryan McGowan who both bowled very well, the Mellis reply was steady with an opening stand of 48 by Mike Soper and David Williamson. George Davey and Brett Crisp provided good support bowling keeping a grip of the game, Mellis's Rob Tilley then struck a lively 55 but when he was clean bowled by Reece Crisp with Mellis on 135 for 5, the home team's challenge petered out leaving them short.

Simply call us on 01473 823366 for friendly advice and quotations on any printed product

Artwork and Design We use most of the current software packages and can produce printed items from your ideas, or of course, your supplied artwork and we will always provide full colour proofs for you to check before proceeding with your order.

BUSINESS STATIONERY Letterheads, Compliment Slips, Business Cards We supply these items on a massive range of papers, from our standard laser guaranteed stocks which enable customers to use a plain letterhead for letters, quotations, etc, through to high end papers such as the popular Conqueror and Connoisseur range as well as many others. Stationery can be printed in one to full colour, one or both sides and we can apply foil blocking, blind embossing and thermography. Business cards are produced either digitally on our Xerox Docucolour for customers requiring small quantities or the better quality litho process in one to full colour, again with the option of foil blocking, blind embossing and thermography. We have literally hundreds of previously produced examples for you to choose from. Just call in. Vodafone Specialist Communicatio

BUSINESS FORMS Absolutely any form you may use in your office! We are the experts in carbonless forms! Supplied printed in one to full colour on standard no carbon required paper, numbered sequentially if required, perforated in any position and drilled to fit your filing system. Glued into sets of two upwards or stapled into books with covers and a writing shield glued in. Available in any size you need. Just ask.

FOLDERS Presentation Folders Ideal for holding Sales Leaflets, Price Lists, Quotations and Information about your company or products. Supplied in various sizes the most popular being those to hold A4 and A5 Sheets. The folders have internal pockets which are cut out using a steel die and these are then glued down. Pocket size and shape is down to your preference or to save money use one of our existing die shapes. Printed from one to full colour, with gloss and matt laminate coverings plus spot UV varnishes to emphasise logos and photographs. These folders are generally printed on top quality gloss, silk and matt coated boards, if you are unsure give us a ring. We can deliver printed samples for you to compare.

COMPUTER STATIONERY Invoices, Statements, Credit Notes, Letterheads, Advice Notes, etc. Continuous stationery is one of those printed items which frightens a lot of those office staff who have to order them! Don’t worry, just give us a call and we will guide you through it. We supply any size of form for use in office printers, horizontally or vertically perforated if required. Instead of using plain forms from your software supplier why not ask us for a quote to supply you with your own individually designed stationery?

BROCHURES Company and Product Brochures Promote your business with high quality colour brochures, the most popular sizes being A4 and A5. These can be produced on any material of your choice, but for best colour reproduction stick to coated gloss, matt or silk papers. These coated stocks are now available using recycled fibre and are superb! Just call in, any time, without appointment and we will be happy to show you samples of recent work or perhaps you may even watch a colour brochure come hot off the press!

THE EXOTIC! Anything unusual? Try us! For any item which is out of the ordinary, strange shape or material or maybe you need a promotional item printed with your details - give us a ring. We have probably produced something similar, or if not - we will guide you to a man who can!

Why not try us next time you have any printing requirement, large or small. You are welcome to call in at any time or, if it is more convenient, we will be pleased to visit you. Keith Avis Printers, 68 High Street, Hadleigh, Ipswich IP7 5EF.
