News March 2016 Dear Parishioners, What a strange winter it has been – wet, wet, wet and apart from a few bright days rather dark. In the midst of all this there have been several things to give thanks for: firstly just before Christmas a group of intrepid campers from the church set up on the Millennium Green to raise awareness of those who sleep rough and the refugee crisis and funds for the Church Urban Fund and Medicins Sans Frontiere. More than £1000 was raised from that night so well done to both the campers and thanks to all those who contributed. Secondly 4 youngsters who have joined the church choir have reached the first white standard on the RSCM Voice for Life scheme and were presented with their certificates by the Dean of the Cathedral when he came to join us for worship on the last day in January. Well done to Aeowyn, Matthew, Sepphie and Cassie for their great start and we look forward to hearing about the next stage of this scheme in the near future! It

was good to have Michael Tavinor, the Dean of the Cathedral, who cheered us all and inspired us to live up to our names and those of our patron saints as he preached with dry humour and skill. Somehow, many of us shared lunch in the rectory after this service, and there was much laughter and fun. What will March hold? Friday 4th March from 2 – 3pm is the Women’s World Day of Prayer service at the Methodist Church. Women (and Men) all over the world will be praying the same words prepared this year by the church in Cuba! Do come and add your voice. Mothering Sunday is soon upon us on 6th March and a service at 9.30am in Church when we will remember all those who mother us, and give thanks for our Mother Church and there will be flowers for us to give for love received. All will be welcome. On Tuesday of the same week there will be a Taizé Service in Church at 7.30pm which is always a special service with music and candles and a time of silence for your prayers.

And then on Palm Sunday in the evening (20th March at 6.30pm) the choir and friends will be singing ‘Olivet to Calvary’ – a moving account of the last days of Jesus’s life. This will be a space where we enter into the passion story. Later in the week on Maundy Thursday the school will come into church at 2pm for their Easter Service and in the evening we will be joining together with the other churches of the group at Eardisland for a “Last Supper Meal” and service and that, I know, will be a good space. On Good Friday there will be a service at Leinthall Earles at 10.30am walking with the cross and this has proved to be another special time (bring stout shoes), and then a service in Kingsland at 2pm as we remember the last hour on the Cross. In the evening at Eardisland there will be a meditation at 6.30pm. Somehow this all makes the amazing events of Easter Sunday such a surprise and joy and relief. It reminds us that in whatever difficult place we find ourselves there is always hope. I look forward to sharing these times with you and may we be able to say, “Jesus Christ is risen today! Alleluia!” Julie

Easter Lilies As we are now in Lent, it is time to start thinking about Easter and the annual sponsoring of a lily, which makes the Church look so beautiful on Easter Day. If you would like to sponsor a lily in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion, forms will be available from the back of the Church or at the Post Office. Please complete a form and return it to me (708479) or post it through the rectory letter box. Pam Smith Kingsland Churchyard Since October 2014 a group of eight of us, all volunteers, have been meeting at the churchyard at 10am on the first and third Thursday of the month, with the object of improving its appearance. This has involved tidying up partly overgrown tombstones, setting headstones upright, clearing split evergreen trees and digging out their roots, weeding and clearing numerous kerbs, strimming, spraying, and cutting off lower branches of trees and border hedges. We have enjoyed these twohour sessions and seeing the results of our efforts. Some new plans include: i. maintaining what has been done ii. obtaining more chippings to cover the now cleared bases of kerbs. iii. keeping mown the garden of remembrance area on the south side iv. keeping the triangle of grass on the way up to the church door as a lawn.

We should like to thank those who have already made donations to this project. It is felt that there are many more who would be pleased to contribute some money, particularly to buy the new mower and the chippings we require. We have a wonderful church in a special setting, centre of a great parish. R.W.H. (Arrow Mill, 01544 388210)

Weobley Theatre Goers We will be going to Malvern to see the The End of The Rainbow on Wed 6th April 2016, leaving Weobley at 12.30, returning by 6.30pm. The play tells the story of Judy Garland as she makes her explosive London comeback at the height of the swinging sixties. This fiercely funny and emotionally charged play finds the once glittering star sparring with her new fiancé, her devoted accompanist, and her own demons. It is filled with Garland’s tenacity, razor-sharp wit and once-in-ageneration voice. Featuring Garland’s most memorable songs The Man that Got Away, Come Rain or Come Shine, The Trolley Song and, of course, Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Ellen Verenieks will be playing the lead at this performance. The cost is £31.50 to be paid before 5th March please. To finish off the season we will be going to Malvern again to hear Nigel Kennedy and the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra playing Nigel Kennedy’s New Four Seasons and English Collection in the Forum Theatre at Malvern on Sunday 17th April, this performance being in the evening. Seats are in the front of the raised seating – rows N and O. Tickets are £55 each to include the coach, payable before 15th March please. NB The coach will leave Bell Square at 5.45pm and we should be back in Weobley around 11.15/11.30pm. Kate Best

Kingsland Neighbourhood Plan News Thank you for responding to the public consultation. All the representations received and Herefordshire Council's report on the consultation are now on Hereford Council's website and the Neighbourhood Plan pages on the KingslandLife website. To summarise, Herefordshire Council Neighbourhood Planning have reviewed the plan and representations alongside planning policies and are very positive to it as it stands. However, because of circumstances beyond our control that might affect the council's approach to the housing figures in the plan i.e. the legal challenge to the planning permission granted for the land adjoining Kingsleane, we cannot at this point proceed to the next Independent Examination stage. Effectively we have to wait for resolution of this issue and we are currently in discussions with Herefordshire Council on how to proceed. When we have further news we will update the website pages and details of Steering Group meetings will be posted on the village notice board, in the Post Office, on KingslandLife and Facebook when they are arranged. We hope that this issue will be resolved soon so that the Neighbourhood Plan can move forward and meanwhile will do our best to keep you informed of progress. KNDP Steering Group

Nature Notes 12/2/16 Events of the past month, perhaps more so than usual, have been dominated by the weather. Mild temperatures, very wet conditions, and flooding, but the Rooks are about and numerous, with much noise and display activity. One was seen carrying a twig to a nest site. Plenty of slugs, worms etc. are available – Rooks never eat carrion. A Blackbird was singing this morning before 7 am and presumably a Tawny Owl calling at 3 am, but never seen. Catkins in nut trees very evident. Moles are pro-active but daffodils look bedraggled and Snowdrops are later than usual. However, days are lengthening and some occasional sunshine welcome to everything, including us. The mild winter has resulted in fewer visitors from Northern Europe, such as Woodcock, Snipe, Teal, Fieldfare and Redwings. Plenty of local foxes about!

R.W.H. Calling All Gardeners! Orleton and District Gardening Club is offering an opportunity to get together with other gardeners. A warm welcome is assured at its meetings, which are usually on the last Tuesday of the month at 7.30 p.m. in Orleton Village Hall.

Kingsland Bowling Club - forward March! We have already enjoyed a sequence of sociable Quiz Nights that have given us company and amusement through all the soggy weather of this winter. Now the daffodils are out and golden, and it is my duty to remind all our bowling club gardeners that we shall, as last year, have a Plant Stall when the season is under way - so plant a few extra seeds for the Club! Meanwhile, we have more food and friendship to look forward to in March. On 6th March we have another of our winter Sunday Lunches; these meals are always fully subscribed, very good value, and fun for all, and tickets are rapidly being sold. There's a further Quiz Night on Friday 11th March, and Cottage Pie Night is on Friday 18th March - that should warm us all up in a month that looks chilly so far. Mops and dusters at the ready on Wednesday 30th March; we invite new brooms and old to help with our Club Spring Clean. I’d also like to take this opportunity to tell you how much we appreciate all the donations and raffle prizes which generous members have brought in for us - and we hope you will continue to support us with your generosity and your presence at our various events - without help from all our members, our club could not be the friendly and well-supplied place that it is. Now for a second mention of our first Club Night on Tuesday 5th April; this marks the start of our bowling year - and just to remind everybody, it also marks the close of Friday Social Nights. We have a full fixture list which members will receive with a Spring Newsletter during March, and we look forward to seeing the green and the clubhouse as lively as it was last year. (It is rumoured that hot dogs will once again be available on Club Nights, so get your mouths in shape as well as your bowls!)

Dear Kingsland News readers, I should be grateful if people would not feed my two horses in the field in Shirlheath. They both have specific dietary requirements so cannot have any titbits (no apples, carrots). It also encourages them to lean over the fences and argue with each other. Both are out there on veterinary advice and are regularly seen by the farrier, horse dentist and vet for routine treatments and we check them ourselves a number of times a day. I am sure you wouldn't like me to come and feed your dogs, children, or grandchildren without asking you; my horses are no different! Thank you. Denise Cullimore

Luctonians Sports Club. The Archery section is under way. This is another great pastime which can be very competitive. People are welcome to join – they meet on Sunday afternoons. Come and find out more and ‘draw the bent stick’. A detailed match programme was produced for the home 1st XV fixture with Sale on February 6th. The opposition arrived in a large, smart coach, but on inspecting the pitch declined to play. Luctonians were prepared to, but the away side’s decision stood. However a complete sell-out of tables for the pre-match lunch, combined with some extended speeches and televised Six-Nation Internationals in a warm, dry clubhouse aided bar takings. The new Cricket changing rooms building is well on, with a great bunch of volunteers responsible. Warm sunny days ahead – come and try the showers! R.W.H.

Service for the Women’s World Day of Prayer Women's World Day of Prayer is an international, ecumenical, prayer movement that invites women, from a different part of the world each year, to prepare a worship service through which their hopes and fears for their country may be brought before the whole world in prayer. On Friday, 4th March an estimated 3 million people in over 170 countries and islands will gather to observe the day of prayer, using an order of service written by Christian women in Cuba and translated into over 60 languages and 1000 dialects. In the British Isles alone over 6,000 services will be held. The day begins as the sun rises over the island of Samoa and continues until it sets off the coast of American Samoa, some 35 hours later. The theme 'Receive children. Receive me' reflects St Mark's Gospel, chapter 10 verses 13-16, which is the focus of the service and a reminder that everyone is a child of God and equally worthy of our love and respect. The Republic of Cuba is the largest Caribbean island, located at the entrance of the Gulf of Mexico and called 'the Key to the Gulf. Politically at odds with the USA, Cuba suffered greatly due to the economic embargo imposed upon it in 1960 but has found strength within itself to move on and overcome many of its problems. This is not a day of prayer just for women - everyone is welcome to attend the service which, in Kingsland will be held in the Methodist Chapel at 2 pm. For further information and resources, please see the WWDP website: www.wwdp.org.uk

Advertising in the Kingsland News

During the preparation of this copy of the Kingsland News I have had to work without connection to the internet, and thus e-mail. I rely heavily on e-mail to receive articles from contributors and information from advertisers, so the process has been unduly wearisome and irritating! My internet connection disappeared on the evening of January 23rd. My internet provider was very helpful in trying to restore my connection until an engineer was required to come to the house. This occasioned a delay of several days and, since he found no problem with any of my hardware, necessitated the arrangement of further intervention from ‘Openreach’. After another delay of 13 days ‘Openreach’ apparently solved the problem on February 18th by correcting connection errors at the exchange! Why did this take so long, and why was I cut off from a service, for which I pay handsomely, for nearly four weeks?

This monthly publication is circulated to every household in Kingsland. Advertising is accepted on completion of a form. Advertisers should make copy as clear and concise as possible. Forms are available from the editor, (01568 708672), from the back of the church, or from the Post Office. Please return the completed form, together with the appropriate fee, to The Editor at: 5, Highfield Close, Kingsland, HR6 9RS. Enquiries to noondr@aol.com

Another reader, Jan Foyle, has contacted me about the poor mobile phone signal in many parts of the village, and wonders why the church tower is not used for a phone mast? Some years ago one telephone provider asked to put an aerial on the church tower, but the advice from the diocesan office was to wait and let them negotiate superior terms. We are still waiting! It would be interesting to know if other readers have suffered poor (or possibly even enjoyed very good) service in either of these areas. If you have, please let me know. I guarantee not to use your name without your permission. Methods of contacting me are listed below. David Noon (Editor)

You know what they are trying to say! (These statements are supposedly taken direct from the GCSE papers of various candidates who don’t manage to say quite what they mean!)

1. Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He died before he ever reached Canada

2. Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was canonised by Bernard Shaw. Finally Magna Carta provided that no man should be hanged twice for the same offence. 3. Another story was William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple while standing on his son's head.

4. Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline. 5. Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable in the autumn when the apples are falling off the trees. 6. Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which he kept up in his attic. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Bach was the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel. Handel was half German half Italian and half English. He was very large

Last Laugh! One entrepreneur says to another: "I've just been in the Far East prospecting for gold." "Japan?" asks the second entrepreneur. "Gosh, no," he replies. "I used much more scientific methods."
