Kingsland News


August 2016 Dear Parishioners, Thank you to those who showed me kindness last month as family matters took a priority in my life for a while. What a wonderful month July has been – Open Gardens at the beginning for the Hospice and Church saw the glories of what is possible with tender care and artistic skill in eleven gardens in Kingsland and I am most grateful to those who prepared and opened their gardens to inspire us in our own! Thanks too to the organisers: Jean wearing both church and hospice hat, the ladies of the church for providing lunches and teas and the hospice team for providing publicity. £1400 was raised that weekend to be split between both charities. Thank you to all who came. My son Jonathan sends his thanks to all who supported the Impromptu concert in Kingsland Church that same weekend in aid of the Gurkha Welfare Trust and Oxfam. It was lovely to see him (I don’t see him so much now!!) and his friends enjoy music making and the sounds of instruments we wouldn’t normally hear play solos – that tuba certainly filled the church and those low notes must have challenged those with hearing aids. The oboe was my favourite! £730 was raised from the concert and will go to their fundraising for a 100km walk on 23rd July across the South Downs.

We made a start in thinking about the wonderful building that we all know, love and treasure, in a Vision Day open to everyone but only as yet touching the surface of exploring what needs to happen over the next few years to our building. There is conservation and development work to be done and in time you will all be drawn into thinking about this. There are questionnaires in the church that you can pick up and write your ideas on and a box to return them to. Try and make time over August to do this so that we move forward together as a community and church for the good of all. Pop up Opera is stunning. We are privileged to have them come to Kingsland and if you haven’t been yet then when they come next year do make the effort. Thanks to Jim and Dee for hosting the evening with SMAAAK and £900 was profit for the funds towards the fabric work of the church. Along with a wedding, a funeral, the school end of year service, and the weekly worship of the church it has been a busy month. In August it is holiday time for the schools and families and things look a little different! We are planning a series of Summer Services that go on Safari around the parishes – something old


and something new and I hope you will engage with the adventure when you are in town. We will be putting up posters in pubs and parks so visitors know and I hope you will encourage others to make the effort to travel, there will be an opportunity for anyone from any of the parishes to sing in a makeshift choir for each service – so if you would like to be part of one or all watch out. All the services are at 10.30am with refreshments after each so we can enjoy each other’s company for a while. On 7th August we go to Aymestrey for a BCP Communion Service entitled “You must be joking!” with Julie at the helm. On 14th August the service is back at Kingsland “What do you want me to do and be?” Preacher Rev Dr Neil Richardson. The service is In Eardisland on the 21st August. It will be a Taizé Service with space to think and pray, and on the 28th August it will be “Feeding the 5000”, at Leinthall Earles. Come and find out about Lammas and bring a picnic to share in the lovely grounds. Joking apart and despite the political upheavals at this time, there are still a whole host of refugees camped out in Calais and needing support. It was reported recently that the food parcels that had been taken round were ceasing because gifts had dried up and that was causing great hardship. We will have a session gathering the specific items that are needed during August, and there is a request that if anyone is either going or coming back from their holidays and passing through Calais and wanted to spend a few hours helping pack bags they will always be welcome and if you contact me I can put you in touch with Kathy Bland at the Priory who has done this and knows the ropes.

In the last week in August I will be running a steel band workshop in the church and if you would like to come and take part in that (child or adult) you should have a word with me and we can slot you in. We are delighted to welcome Timothy Noon to lead us in the Last Night of the Proms on Friday 2nd September. As you may know, since January, Timothy has been Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral and a group from our choir were able to take part in a day he organised for choirs back in May. He is not only a superb organist but entertaining in his engagement with audiences and will combine these talents to present this special event.. Tell your friends and bring them along you will not be disappointed. Finally, save the date of Friday 30th September for a meal and auction of promises at the Lucs which will be our major fundraising venture for this year and vital for the smooth running of the vicar. We will be raising money with one of the cancer charities but not all details are decided yet but save the date and get ready to party! Lots of fun for the holiday month and I hope to catch up with you as I am around all of August. Julie



Podium Performance After four long years, it’s almost time for the world’s top athletes to go for gold at the Olympics. To reach this stage, these amazing competitors have had to show commitment, dedication and a constant desire to improve further. Kingspan Insulation has been applying these same principals to its own practice for many years. It was recently rewarded for this at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber Awards, taking the awards for both Excellence in Innovation and Business of the Year. The construction industry never stands still, and one of the challenges Kingspan Insulation’s R&D department constantly face is how to make existing product ranges even better. The answer for the most recent, award winning innovation was to lower the lambda value of the products. Without getting into all the technical details, this simply means contractors can now achieve the insulation performance they want with a slimmer product thickness. This is great news for building owners as it means walls can be kept as thin as possible, giving them as much living or working space as possible. When awarding the Business of the Year award, the judges said it was Kingspan Insulation’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, responsibility and good business practice which set it apart from the competition. The win is a big reward for the hard work, invention and dedication of the entire team at Kingspan Insulation and the trophies are displayed for all to see in the main foyer of the site. Kingspan Insulation were delighted to take home both the Excellence in Innovation and Business of the Year Awards at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber Awards 2016.

Kingsland W I At our July meeting Brenda Drake gave a talk not about guiding as we expected but on a charity, the Associated Country Women of the World. This organisation funds projects particularly focussing on women in need in rural locations. They are often small scale projects but make a big difference to these women's lives. The men often go off to the towns to find work and send very little money home so the wives have to scrape a living from small plots of land. Any surpluses they produce are sold to a middle man who takes his profit and the women make very little. One way the ACWW help is to provide a bicycle with a trailer so that one of the women can take the produce to market and sell it on behalf of the other village women. One woman had a grant to buy a small stove and cooking pots and set up cooking in the market for office workers. Brenda Drake is the official delegate to ACWW for Hereford, a position she has held for many years but is now hoping to find someone new to take on the role. In August our outing will be to Hampton Court and we are all hoping the sun will shine. At our meeting on the 14th Sept there will be a talk and demonstration of spinning. You are all welcome to attend. Pat Hughes

KINGSLAND NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN NEWS FINAL PUBLIC CONSULTATION JULY 11th to AUGUST 22nd 2016 After further work, the submission draft of our Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Herefordshire Council. By the time you read this the second 'Regulation 16', final public consultation, will be underway and you may have seen the official site notices in the village and on the KingslandLife website. The draft plan will now carry some weight when planning applications within Kingsland parish are being decided by Herefordshire Council. This consultation is conducted in accordance with Government regulations, so please note it is being run solely by Herefordshire Council and all comments or representations must be made direct to them. Consequently, the Parish Council, Parish Clerk and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group cannot accept or forward any comments or representations and any received will have to be returned. You can find the draft Neighbourhood Plan, approved by the Parish Council, and all the other consultation documents and details of how to respond to Herefordshire Council on the Parish Council/Neighbourhood Plan Consultation Documents page on You can also go direct to Herefordshire Council's website at and then to the Neighbourhood Plans and Areas page, where you will find ‘Kingsland’ listed under the current consultations section. A paper copy can also be viewed at Leominster Library, 8 Buttercross, Leominster; Hereford Centre, Franklyn House, 4 Commercial Road, Hereford HR1 2BB and at Blueschool House, Blueschool Street, Hereford. Once the consultation has finished, the plan will undergo an independent examination and finally there will be a referendum, giving everyone in the parish, who is on the electoral roll, the opportunity to vote on whether to adopt the Neighbourhood Plan. THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR PARISH Without it, we as residents of the parish will have no influence on planning applications and where development takes place over the next 16 years. Effectively, none of the views you have expressed via the Parish Plan survey, Neighbourhood Plan consultation events or by other means will be taken into account when planning applications within Kingsland parish are being decided. Herefordshire Council will make ALL the decisions as to where and what type of housing is built in our parish. So, many thanks for all your input. Hopefully we are coming to the end of an extremely long road! Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.

Flowers & Brass-cleaning in Church I am working out the new rota for the flowers and the brass-cleaning. If you are able to offer your time and are willing to do either or both (men would be especially welcome for the brasses) please contact me, Mrs P. Smith, 01568 708479.

This vacancy would suit anyone 13 or over and who has got quite strong upper arm strength. We require a person to buff the hall floor once a week at the weekend. This requires you to use our buffing machine and full training will be given. We will pay ÂŁ6.50 per hour and it would take two hours to complete the full buff.

Kingsland Bowling Club (mid-June-mid July 2016) – singing in the rain? Well, we’ve certainly played in the rain, even if we haven’t sung! Our visits to Bulmers and to Leominster included several downpours; but we carried on regardless, and had good company – I even enjoyed the squelch, squelch of the bowls along the green. We were lucky with the weather for our Summer Party on 15th July; we had a very bright evening. Special thanks to our Social Secretary Stuart, who has worked so hard and been so cheerful throughout, and to his helpers both before and during the event. As always we had a sumptuous spread - pork rolls (including crunchy crackling), pasta salads, pavlova, trifle and more; thanks to Treasurer Martin and President Pat for sourcing meat and cooking it, and to the many people who put up gazebos, sorted out furniture and dealt with refreshments. Kevin and Tess did sterling work on the busy bar. Very few of us Played Our Cards Right, but we had fun trying. We had a superb set of prizes donated by generous members for our Raffle and Tombola. Last year I won a can of baked beans, but this year was a feast – two boxes of chocolates! - they’re trying to fatten me up, it must be because I am a small bowler with large-sized bowls. More seriously, we were delighted to welcome a group from Kingsland Cub Scouts on 11th of July for a Taster Session (bowls, not chocolates). It was great to see local youngsters trying out the game and enjoying the green – and once again we

want to thank Bill Wheatley the County Coach for giving his time and energy to show them how to play - we are also grateful to our very busy Chairman Rob and our energetic Vice-Captain Gary who were there to assist. Other events have included ongoing County and in-club competitions many congratulations to Joe on his County Flash. We welcomed the Bowls Herefordshire President’s Team - an opportunity to wear classic white kit and to meet County players - there’s never a dull moment at the Kingsland Bowls Club. - if you want to know more about us, please feel free to contact me.

Nature Notes (11/7/16) Some concern about the lack of fish in the river – an Otter seen and photographed by visiting fishermen – a good sign. A pair of Spotted Flycatchers appeared, to nest in a creeper on the south-facing wall of the house, as last year. They cause no problem – after Wrens, my favourite bird. Vegetable gardens productive, at a cost! Weeds are also enjoying the damp weather – no disease on them! There are repeated complaints about Rabbits. They appear to be everywhere! One has to admire their breeding ability and powers of survival. They certainly enjoy flowers put on graves, and vegetable gardens. The summer is slipping by. Roses are at their best! R.W.H.

Weobley Theatre Group A new venture for the theatre group is to go to our local theatre, the Courtyard in Hereford, which I always like to support. This is not so easily done for a group, as we are only given a few days to advertise the event and make the payment. However, for those who prefer a shorter journey, the Courtyard is perfect. We are going to see Pam Ayres, who is here for the one night – Wednesday 19th October.. The coach will leave Bell Square, Weobley at 6.30 for the 7.30pm performance, returning to Weobley around 10.30pm. By the time this edition of your magazine is out, I will already have booked some seats for the show, but if you would like to join us, I may be able to get a few more seats, but you will need to be quick and let me know by 8th August. Cost will be £36 to include the coach. Then there is The Glenn Miller Story, starring Tommy Steele at Malvern on Wednesday 21st September for which I have just a few seats left. This show really doesn’t need any comment, as we are all so familiar with the music: In the Mood; Tuxedo Junction; Moonlight Serenade. We shall be leaving Bell Square, Weobley at 12.30 and returning around 6.30pm. The cost for this trip is £42 with all seats in the Circle. Please pay before 11th August. Or you may like to see Kiss Me, Kate. We shall be going to Cardiff Millennium Theatre on Thurs 8th Dec, leaving Bell Square, Weobley at 10.00 for the 2.30 performance, and returning around 7.30pm. Cost will be £53 to include the coach, payable before 8th August. Please state whether you would prefer to sit in the circle (rows A, B and C) or the raised stalls (row R central).
