Kingsland News February 2016 Dear Parishioners, I donâ€™t know what you do with these early months of the year. I quite fancy the idea of hibernation but I tend to mumble and grumble my way through them. Today the sky is clear and the sun shining brightly and it does lift my soul to know that the days are now lengthening: a time to take stock perhaps and to sort out, a time to plan ahead and seek wisdom for the future? Easter is early this year and so therefore is Lent, we have hardly stumbled on February before it is time to get out the pancake pan and to bring ourselves with all our joys, sorrows, strengths and weaknesses before God on Ash Wednesday to ask him to be kind to us (be merciful) and lead us on. We lay ourselves open not to be ridiculed but to be loved and healed. The readings in church this last week were about John recognising Jesus as the expected one, who would sort out the good from the dross, the wheat from the husk, the genuine from the empty casings, who would look at us and see who we are deep down inside.
His life shows us the way, because he was the real thing. Ash Wednesday is 10th February and there will be a service at 7.30pm in church to set us on our way. Nick will be leading a Lenten study group and there will be more information about that in the churches. There will be a coffee morning on Thursday 18th February at the Rectory for us to gather together and catch up and raise some money for church funds from 10.30am â€“ 12noon (after the Thursday morning communion) and then a time for a song and some fun on the evening of Saturday 27th February with a Variety Night at the Coronation Hall at7.30 pm (See poster on back page). Look forward to journeying together through the chances and changes of this world. With prayers and good wishes, Julie
Royal British Legion Branch Christmas Lunch The lunch for widows and widowers on 16th December was very successful. 46 members and guests enjoyed an excellent lunch and we wish to thank all at the Corners Inn for the service provided and to Val Davis and Anne Roberts for organising the event. The well supported draw raised £173 for our funds; our thanks to those who provided the wide range of prizes. In Memoriam It is with great regret that we report the death of Andrew Martin. A long serving member of the Branch, he was also an active member of the Royal Naval Association. His long period of illness had prevented him from attending our meetings in recent years but he will be long remembered. We also report the death of Dorothy Lewis who has been an active supporter of the Branch for many years. We extend our deepest sympathy to both Andrew’s and Dorothy’s families for their losses. Gordon Browne (Chairman)

Mortimer’s Cross Battlefield Project
The project to accurately locate the site and develop community activities is moving ahead with the formation of a project steering group under the umbrella of the Battlefield’s Trust. The group is gathering expert help as well as local support and is busy laying the foundations of a long term project. As many of you know this battle in February 1461 was pivotal for Edward Duke of York and Earl of March in establishing his credentials as a great battlefield leader and in furthering the Yorkist cause during the Wars of the Roses. The Battle led to him being crowned as King Edward lV by Londoners before he triumphed against Henry Vl’s and Margaret of Anjou’s forces in the decisive battle of Towton, still aged 18. Underreported and close to Kingsland, thousands were reported to have died in a battle that raged from dawn until dusk. The mighty Lancastrian Owen Tudor was captured and beheaded soon afterwards. The battlefield site was on Edward’s home territory and the famous parhelion (3 suns), seen before the battle, was adopted by him as part of the royal regalia. ‘The Sun in Splendour’ is still in use today during state occasions. Two chantry chapels were founded shortly afterwards in Kingsland church by Edward lV to pray for the ‘souls who were slayne’ in the battle.
Dr Glenn Foard is directing the battlefield archeology in conjunction with Dr Tracy Partida, landscape archeologist, who is researching the landscape of the time. As a result it is eventually intended to help local people read their landscape through time. Community Archeologist Gary Ball is providing his expertise in planning to involve the community. The project steering group is now working to secure funding before embarking upon a series of planned activities. These include a repeat of this year’s successful walk organized and led by Anthony Rich and Martin Hackett.

Next month Diocesan Synod will consider a proposal for a new way of contributing to the ministry of our diocese. Instead of parishes or benefices being told how much you should give, you will be invited to be as generous as you can be. It's as simple as that but it involves a change of culture. Instead of working to raise funds through village fetes etc. in order to pay an amount someone else has decided, you will have to work out, through prayer and reflection, how God is calling you to respond to his generosity: how you will use all his gifts to help his mission throughout our diocese. With the freedom to decide how much you will give goes responsibility. Individual responsibility to be as generous as you can be in your own giving to the church. And a collective,

Members of the Bishop's working group are still visiting deaneries, benefices and parishes to listen to your concerns and to help you understand the proposal.

Kingsland WI At our January meeting Jill and Vic Harkness talked about their trip to Brazil in 2014. Their main aim was to see jaguars in the wild, having seen all the other big cats. In this they certainly succeeded as demonstrated by the excellent shots they had of jaguars and also of the exotic wildlife of Brazil. Their trip was strenuous involving several flights and then long journeys to reach their locations. They spent long hours on the river to get photos of the brilliantly coloured birds. They covered three different areas, each with different animals, birds and butterflies. They started in jungle habitat, where the river was full of caymans and brilliant birds could be seen in the jungle, then on to the wetlands of the Pantanal and lastly to the Amazon basin. They climbed 18 flights up an observation tower for the view above the tree canopy from where they took a picture of a pair of red and green macaws in flight. Vic's photography was excellent with wonderful pictures of tapirs, capybaras and giant otters up to 5 or 6 feet long. The enormous number of brightly coloured birds and butterflies was dazzling, amongst others the iridescent green of the rufus tailed jacobar, kingfishers and a humming bird. There was a vulture, a pair of great horned owls, a rhea and a bird called a kiskadee. We all enjoyed our evening very much. Our next meeting on Feb 10th will be a social evening.

Nature Notes (12/1/16) The very wet and mild weather has dominated proceeding for many days. One ponders what depth would have been reached if all the recent rain had fallen as snow. Reports everywhere of Spring flowers in bloom, birds pairing up, and Sparrows carrying feathers. Another report of two hatches of Mallard Ducklings in December â€“ they will have little chance of surviving. A large Mink was witnessed near the Pinsley Brook, being chased by two terriers who were unable to climb the tree involved in the action. Two Bullfinches were seen opening the pods from a Honeysuckle bush, to extract the seeds. Bird tables not in great demand.
Pheasants available aplenty, but not many willing hands to feather and dress them. Days gradually lengthen. Geoffrey Bright wrote: The sleeping land begins to stir, The winter rest is oâ€™er, TheWren and Robin trill their notes, The Larks begin to soar; And Snowdrops peep from grassy banks To greet the lengthening day And soon it will be Candlemas When all good Geese must lay.

Luctonians Sports Club Rugby matches have been postponed in numbers due to impossible playing conditions caused by the incessant rain. The option of the far pitch with full floodlighting enabled the 1st XV home match on January 9th to take place, during heavy showers that fully tested players and spectators – a 10-9 win much appreciated by the club. This followed a most successful President’s Luncheon. Planning for future events continues. The weekly ‘Euroheat’ Lucsline on the internet reaches far and wide, with a ‘Player’s Profile’ item very popular. Some younger members are away on travels, with Australia and New Zealand popular choices – it is warmer there! The club committee is active, with a set of dedicated members giving much time and thought to keeping Luctonians moving forward!

Corrections In the list of details of Kingsland Organisations on the back page of the January edition it was incorrectly stated that the President of Kingsland Bowling Club is Mr Pat Edwards. Of course it should be Mrs Pat Edwards. The table of collections for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal was correct in almost every detail, but for some reason the font size for the final total was reduced to a size which made it almost illegible. The excellent total was, of course, ÂŁ3870.83. Apologies for these errors! David Noon, (Editor)

Kingsland Bowling Club Christmas and New Year have given us a chance to recharge our batteries, and we hope you have all had a splendid time. Now we can go forward into 2016; one of our aims is to run coaching courses for all interested members, old and new – not just how to send a bowl, but aspects of our game such as etiquette and responsibilities of different positions. One thing I love about it is the ritual – before we start, we shake hands and wish everyone a good game, and it feels right to be polite, even if you also want to win! There’s usually a bit of time to chat to team-mates and opponents through and after the game, and to find out more about them, so it’s social too. People do sometimes assume that it’s a simple game, but it’s full of interesting twists. You can look at it mathematically and try to calculate angles; you can see it tactically and think about where to place each bowl; you always have to allow for different greens and different opponents. Even the weather plays its part, with wetter conditions slowing things down. Still, green maintenance – professionally from Avonmore and in house by club working parties and our acting Green Keeper Malcolm Morgan (also our Captain) – goes on all through the year, regardless of climate. Our Chairman Rob Parker Morgan is currently supervising our building as acting Controller, so our thanks go to both of them for all their multi-tasking.
However, we still have some entertaining events even if the heavens open! On 12th February members and their guests can enjoy Soup and Puddings, while we have a Quiz Night on 26th Feb. Sunday 6th March sees another tempting Spring Sunday Lunch (tickets limited as usual) - and then it’s only about a month until the season gets under way, and Tuesday Club Nights take over from Friday Winter sessions. Just to let you know, our first Tuesday Club Night will be on 5th April (though we can’t get onto the green until after 15th April) – so if you have already joined us, come and renew the acquaintance. If you fancy trying your hand and making new friends, why not come along one Tuesday and see what we have to offer – we will be happy to show you round and get the ball rolling! www.kingslandbowlingclub.co.uk - if you want to know more about us, please feel free to contact: Susanna Checketts (Secretary) 01568 770546

Kingsland Parish Neighbourhood Plan News The final public consultation being run by Herefordshire Council has now finished so thank you to all those who responded. The next stage of the process laid out in the legislation is for Herefordshire Council to appoint an Independent Examiner who will then look at the Plan, all the other associated documents, as well as all the representations received. The documents the Examiner will be looking at are on the Neighbourhood Plan/Public Consultation page of kingslandlife.com During the examination the plan will be judged against the 'Basic Conditions' outlined in government legislation. To summarise this means it will be judged on whether the Neighbourhood Plan complies with the National Planning Policy Framework, any other government planning guidance, Herefordshire Council's Core Strategy and other relevant European legislation. The Examiner may then suggest any amendments they think necessary for compliance. At the time of writing Herefordshire Council is predicting that the examination will take place around the end of February. It is then another 2-3 months until the parish referendum will take place. Meanwhile, if there is any other news we will update the main Neighbourhood Plan page on www.kingslandlife.com so please look there for the most recent information we have.

Weobley Theatre Goers We shall be going to see Toast in Malvern on Wed. 24th Feb, leaving Weobley at 12.30pm. If you are interested in cancellation seats, please give me a ring. We will then be going to Malvern again, this time to see the The End of The Rainbow on Wed. 6th April 2016, leaving Weobley at 12.30. 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-a-generation 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. There are moments in the theatre when you lean forward in your seat with shivers racing down the spine, and realise there is nowhere else on God’s earth that you’d rather be. End of the Rainbow is one such occasion – Daily Telegraph Ellen Verenieks will be playing the lead at this performance. The cost is £31.50 to be paid before 5 March please. Then 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. I have reserved seats in the front of the raised seating – rows N and O – which should give us a good view as well as being not too near the stage. 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 (01544 318513) email@example.com
Dorothy Lewis It is with great sadness that the Kingsland News reports the death of Dorothy Lewis. Since coming to live in the village with husband, David, in 1978 she has always involved herself with village activities – the Church, Kingsland Amateur Theatrical Society, and Kingsland W.I. She was my neighbour and friend for almost 38 years and at difficult times has been an enormous help and support to me. Dorothy was a founder member of the team which produced the Kingsland News, initially typing the copy onto wax stencils before running off the pages on a handwound Gestetner machine. With computing, the introduction of advertisements, and the leasing of the motor-driven Risograph machine on which the magazine is now printed, that became unnecessary, but compiling the individual pages into the magazine is expensive and difficult to automate, so at present it is done by hand, and, yes, you’ve guessed it, until very recently it was done by a team led by Dorothy. (We are very grateful that Susie Teece has taken on that job which takes a chunk of time out of the later weeks of every month!) I know that many of you will miss Dorothy greatly but she will be remembered for the many-faceted contributions she made to the lives of other people, as wife, mother, supporter and friend.

Ask a silly question…….
A lorry driver was driving along. A sign comes up that reads "low bridge ahead." Before he knows it the bridge is right ahead of him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up. The policeman gets out of his car and walks around to the lorry driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, "Got stuck?" The lorry driver says, "No mate, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of fuel."
