Kingsland News June 2017 The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York have galvanised the Churches across England to pray “Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven”. We have prayed in Church for 24 hours for the earth and for all who inhabit it. We started with the situation of the global warming issues that our Lent Course had studied – the science, the politics and the theology. The group were faced with the reality that if we live normal, everyday lives we will be leaving a disastrous legacy for our children and our children’s children. And we need to do something about this. This time of prayer leads up to the celebration of Pentecost, or the old Whit Sunday, as many of us remember it. It was the time when the disciples were faced with being in the world and facing its issues without Jesus – for he had finally returned to his Father in heaven, and they huddled together in an upper room and prayed. On the day of Pentecost, they were visited by the Holy Spirit, sweeping through the room like a whirlwind and alighting on them with tongues of fire that didn’t harm them. They were pushed out onto the streets and found that they were talking to the crowds in other languages and the people that had gathered from across the known world for a festival,

could understand them talking about Jesus in their own native languages. The disciples were filled with confidence to tell the truth about their faith and the story they had shared with this most amazing man called Jesus. We have been privileged to know Mrs Daniel, whose Christian faith and leadership are an inspiration and who is an outstanding Headteacher. It is with sadness that we have learnt that she is to be leaving Kingsland Primary School at the end of the Summer Term to become the Headteacher of a primary school in Wolverhampton, to share her wonderful gifts with a new school. There will be more about this in the July Magazine, but we wish her well as she looks to a new adventure and to Mr Debenham who will be acting as Headteacher for the Autumn Term. There is a huge party in the Cathedral on the afternoon of Sunday June 4th which is Pentecost Sunday, and we are wearing red and all are welcome to join us. The month of June brings a whole host of celebrations – 4 baptisms and a wedding, a Church and School alliance for a Fete and the choir are singing again for Choral Evensong with cream tea beforehand. And we thank the Vaughan Family for their hospitality at Rogation. We are

grateful to those who devote their lives to the care and stewardship of the land and the production of our food, and we pray for the right amount of warmth and rain for the crops. Such a wonderful place to live! Every blessing, Julie

Luctonians Sports Club The club is active and very-much alive with various sections under way for Summer activities. Some sections are enjoying the benefit of an excellent ground and new changing rooms. The 2016-17 Rugby season has been consigned to the record books and there is now a chance to forget training, the bruises and the miles of travelling. The training area under the grandstand is available for those so inclined! How about you? Various events in the clubhouse continue, and the gardens are receiving tender loving care from our green-fingered lady life member. Three Cricket sides are in action, each forming their own identity with friends. A growing number of people enjoy Saturday at the clubhouse from about 5 pm to watch the Cricket and voice opinions on many subjects. Come and join them! Buy your own beer! R.W.H.

Royal British Legion Branch Meetings The th meeting on 8 May was very well attended and raised £99 (a record?) thanks to a good quiz, set by Terence, and draw. Our next meeting will be on 5th June. Future Branch Meetings Members have expressed a wish to increase the number of meetings. We stopped having meetings in the winter months because of bad weather, dark nights and hence the low attendances. The proposed solution is to hold our monthly meetings in December, January and February at lunch time, assembling at 12.00 with a lunch of some sort at about 12.30 pm. In addition, we will bring forward the start time of the AGM in September to 7.00pm (instead of 7.30pm) and follow with our usual 7.45 social gathering. I will amend the Village diary accordingly with the January meeting on 9th and February on 6th. County Rally The 2017 Rally will be held at LLanwarne with an act of remembrance at Christ Church war memorial at 2.15 pm followed by a church service. Women at War 100 On 7th July, the RBL will commemorate the founding of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps in 1917 as well as the role of women in the armed forces ever since. The event is being held at the National Memorial Arboretum, starting at 11.30. Any of our lady members who served in uniform at any time who may wish to attend should contact 020 3053 7216 for an application form. Deadline for applying is 24th May. Gordon Browne (Chairman)

Kingsland Bowling Club (midApril-midMay 2017 – hot and cold rolls!) Our traditional opening match between President’s and Captain’s teams took place on 22nd April. It was a glorious sunny afternoon, though with a chilly breeze; numerous players and spectators turned out for the fun, and Captain Carol Brigden declared that it could not have gone better – though President Albert Brigden had triumphed! (It was idly rumoured that he might be in the doghouse or at least in the spare room, but we believe that he had the upper hand – on the green, that is.) After this splendid start, our first chance for a roll-up (on 26th April) was a wet and freezing brief encounter – it isn’t often that I give the game the cold shoulder, but was a block of ice after about 15 minutes. The weather has continued nippy; I was reliably informed that the men thought the club had been moved to the Arctic one Wednesday evening when they played a Hereford Men’s League match. Still, the enticing smell of grilling has drifted across the green on Tuesdays as our Hot Dog Operators are once more saving our bacon when we come in from the cold – grateful thanks to Hot Dog Honcho Malcolm (who is still manfully mowing our green) for allowing me a non-hot-dog Hot Dog when I couldn’t manage a sausage – I hasten to add that I demanded butter, and paid full price for a saucy little roll. We were fortunate with the weather again for our Fun Open Day on 29 th April, when we welcomed 14 visitors and invited them onto the green to try our beautiful game – it wasn’t actually sunny, but it was very enjoyable - a good number of members came along to coach, to help and to show some of the moves – thank you for your support, and thank you again to the Recruitment team with Terry at the helm for all their hard work. Any visitor wanting to try our Club and our sport has been offered 6 free coaching sessions on Club Tuesdays, with President Albert in attendance as our main coach, and several people are already taking advantage of this. The match season has well and truly commenced; we hosted Wellington on a very cold evening and I was pleased to be part of the winning team – though we have no doubt they will repay the compliment when we visit their artificial green! I also relished a tasty plate of quiche, coleslaw, potatoes and of course a sausage roll. As a substitute for the Weobley match, also at home, it was great to have the unexpected opportunity to play in another winning game, as well as greeting all the players I’ve got to know from indoor matches – playing bowls gives one the chance to meet all manner of people and to feel part of a sporting community. There was also a lovely journey through green pastures with views of blue mountains to Llandrindod Wells, where I was lucky to be on the rink with star skip Joe Scamp, and to win my first notebook of the season. We’re on a roll, folks, come and join us!! - if you want to know more about us, please feel free to contact me, Susanna Checketts (Secretary) 01568 770546

MORTIMER MEDICAL PRACTICE News from Your Patients Participation Group Herefordshire’s new ‘WISH’ centre for all wellbeing services The Herefordshire ‘Wish’ Leader , Lisa Bradley, recently spoke to the Group about this facility for County residents. It is based on a website listing all wellbeing services (with a list of help points ranging from physical and mental illnesses to keep fit and sporting organisations) throughout the county, with an office in Hereford Library. Sessions are held all over the county with a fortnightly presence in Leominster; as well as face-to-face consultations, contact may also be made via telephone or on-line. (Home visits are not available.) Local authorities have an obligation to fund wellbeing services but few have the manned service we in this County now have. The service is partly funded for three years by Herefordshire Council so please take advantage of it. If you have an opportunity, have a look at the website. Feedback of your experience in due course, your views on the website, or if you think your money has been well spent on the right priority, will be much appreciated. Medical Student Appointments From time to time the practice helps in the training of Keele University Medical Students. At the time of booking appointments patients may be asked, if as well as seeing the doctor, they would be prepared to see a student. The student will take the history and may, with your agreement, perform some examinations under supervision. You will not be obliged to see a student and of course there may well be times when you would prefer only to see a doctor. However the advantage of having a preliminary talk with a student is that overall your appointment can last 30 minutes and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have assisted in the training of one of the medics of the future. Any concerns or suggestions you would like raised please contact me on 01568780891 or at ‘bwebertaylor@gmail.com’. Brian Taylor

Apple-blossom time – what a show produced by nature, free of charge! My concern is with Cider sales! A hot, dry summer would help, as would China and India developing the taste! Could we call it ‘Orchard Wine’? My favourite scent of the moment is Lily of the Valley. No perfume to compare! Bird life is eventful. Grey Wagtails hatched and reared two chicks in a wonderfully camouflaged nest in a Clematis. The parent bird made great efforts to call the young out of the nest to join the big, wide, world. One Dipper, only, seen, perhaps from a hatch upstream. I have heard a Cuckoo once only on April 29th. There is some bad news. Of local Mistle Thrush one young fell from the nest, was fed by the parents on the lawn, only to be found dead later. A local fish pond was cleared of seventeen fish by an early morning Heron. I hear of others upstream – not good news for the wild brown trout. The cold spell continues. The fly-fishermen are having a blank, but seem happy – one expressing the opinion that it was better than pushing a trolley round the supermarket! The sequence of flowers in bloom continues. Snowdrops are gone, Daffodils very second hand, and now joined by Docks, Thistles and Nettles. The vegetable garden is very dry, but seeds, such as Kidney Beans, are showing. There is the prospect of a feed of peas and new garden potatoes to look forward to. Patience!! R.W.H.
