October 2021 Covid Month 18 Dear Fellow Residents As I write this month, its nearly half term, how the time flies past. Although we are getting towards more ‘normal’ activity I have also reflected how we have got used to all these strange precautions. I still see lots of people wearing masks in shops and other indoor spaces and I wonder if, like me, you are regularly doing Lateral Flow Tests as part of feeling more comfortable about joining in with activities. Enjoy this lovely autumn weather and the beautiful colours and lets be thankful for all we have. Stay safe, keep your distance, wear a mask and wash your hands, do all of that then:

Give a few hugs and share the love! Kathy Blackmore, Editor

Dear Friends, When I googled UK events in October the first event was to have a cup of coffee! It’s always a good start to my day! In the Christian Calendar, October is full of events too. My favourite day this month is the 4th October. A day Christians remember St Francis because he cared for all humankind and all creatures. Can you recall St Francis wonderful poetic hymn, ‘Make me a channel of your peace’ from his prayer? Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. As we move throughout October with all its other special eventful days, around care for teachers, grandparents, smiling, singing, history and cats! May we take a leaf out of St Francis prayer and be those channels of peace in our communities? Amen. Every Blessing,

Revd Caren Topley

Clifton Cameo Number 2:

Calvey and Hollier

In my introduction to this mini series I indicated that the aim was to provide information about people with a close connection to the village. This piece is not concerned with people who were born here but they have an even closer connection in that they died here. Their names are Flt Lieut Harold Charles Calvey recognised as one of the very best RAF Pilots and Flt Sgt William Charles Hollier a “Rigger” who looked after all aspects of maintenance on Calvey’s aeroplane. They died together on the 1st July 1928. Scene1 Opposite the Clifton Cricket ground in Stanford Lane is Clifton Manor which in 1928 was known as Clifton Lodge Hotel. It offered “First Class Food and service in the seclusion of unspoilt English Country” and was used regularly by officers from RAF Henlow including Calvey when he was stationed there or visiting.

Clifton Lodge Hotel in the early 1920s Bedfordshire Archive

Scene 2 All Saints Church with Evensong underway, as the lesson was being read there was a terrific crash heard several miles away. The Rector’s wife Mrs Laporte-Payne quickly made her way there to report what was already recognised as a fatal air crash, The Rector announced the sad news and prayers were said for the deceased and their relatives. Scene 3 Calvey was now stationed at RAF Kenley and the previous Saturday had taken part in the International Air Pageant at Hendon, the premier RAF event of the year. He had held the world record for flying upside down and was one of the very few pilots who could loop the loop flying upside down all the way. On the Sunday he was flying to Sutton Bridge and it seems that he did what he always did if near Clifton Lodge; he did an Aerobatic manoeuvre to tell his friends he was about. Sadly the plane went into a spiral nose dive from 1000 feet and crashed in the corner of the field below the rear Clifton churchyard. Planes at that time were built of wood frames covered in cotton fabric and gave no protection and it was destroyed. It was an Avro 504 N biplane. Calvey and Hollier were killed instantly. Their wives were of course widowed but particularly sadly, five very young children lost their fathers. Their graves are side by side in Henlow graveyard and make a worthwhile destination for an easy cross country walk. Barry Livesey, August 2021

BIGGLESWADE SANDY LIONS CLUB Life is gradually returning to something like normal and we have been to several fetes but due to shortage of time have not been able to publicise these as well as we would have liked. At the time of writing this article we have been to Arlesey Street Market, Sandy Community Fun Day, Potton Village Show and Gamlingay Village Show. If you were able to go to any of those events, I hope you visited our stall and spoke to one or more of our members. Our meetings now return to our usual first and third Wednesday of each month. At our meeting in September, we took the decision to go ahead with the Christmas Dance on 27 th November at the Weatherley Centre from 8pm until midnight. For further information and where to obtain ticket at £25 per person including supper, please see our website at bslions.org.uk. The next big thing to think about is Christmas. I am reliably informed that Rudolf and co are looking forward to visiting our area again this year. As soon as I have the dates, I will let you know. You can always be one ahead of me by looking at our website bslions.org.uk where you will find all sorts of information about us. Perhaps now is a good time to remind you that we collect used spectacles and hearing aids for distribution to the third world through Medecins sans Frontieres. Collecting bins are available at most Opticians and for those living in Gamlingay there is a collecting bin on the front steps of Potton View Care Home. John Bennewith, Public Relations Officer

More Local Ghosts The last column recounted the tale of Rosina, the nun at Chicksands Priory; she was entombed alive for having an affair with a monk and legend has it that she still walks the corridors of the Priory. She is not the only ghost to have been seen in that area. Another was seen during the Second World War, in the form of an old woman in black clothes and having a wrinkled face. Then in 1969 a man delivering newspapers in the early morning on the road from Haynes End to Clophill met a hooded figure on horseback carrying a lantern; he was believed to be a monk on his way to the Priory. He passed through the man's car without touching it and vanished. Another mysterious horseman has been seen in the area. A ghostly knight in full armour was seen at the start of the 20th century riding in thick mist on the road from Ampthill to Millbrook. Several people saw him, and he was later seen again by soldiers on guard duty at Ampthill Park during the 1st World War (if reported one wonders on the reaction of their sergeant!). He is believed to have been Sir John Cornwall (arms opposite) who lived in Ampthill Castle and fought at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415.

While thinking of Ampthill Park there is the curious case of the Farnese Dog, one of my favourite local stories. He was a stone statue acquired by the Earl of Ossory in the 18th century and placed on a pedestal in there. It was said that when he heard the clock on St Andrew's Church strike midday he came alive, got off his pedestal and walked around it three times. If he heard the clock strike midnight he would walk round the entire Park three times. Sadly nobody is recorded as having seen him and he has long since disappeared. But would anyone willingly go out at midnight to investigate, I wonder?! Ghosts are not just in human form.
