Community pulls together to remove ancient tree

by John McBurney

O

n Saturday 14th March a local business and volunteers joined forces to remove a fallen tree from St. Mary’s Churchyard in Henlow. The ancient tree had been blown down during the recent storms. Miraculously, damage to gravestones was minimal, but the tree was in a dangerous position and needed to be moved, however the costs to remove the tree and make safe were significant. Local business ‘Branching Out Tree and Garden Services’ came to the rescue; they provided their time, equipment and highly skilled team of tree surgeons completely free of charge. Lots of people of all ages turned up to help out and show their support, helping to clear branches and logs. One onlooker exclaimed that they had never seen so many wheelbarrows! Teas and coffees were kindly provided by the church and even bacon rolls to help keep everyone re-fuelled. James Morris from Branching Out said, “It has been a truly amazing experience. Our team has worked tirelessly throughout the day but what we have achieved would not have been possible without the help from the local community. It was inspiring to watch the community working together in this way”.

history

WHAT’S IN A PLACE NAME?

by Dan Connors

H

ave you ever wondered how the place you live in came to have its name? Many of the towns and villages we live in have been in existence for many hundreds of years and the name will have changed over time. There are several place name endings that can help give us a clue to the name and original reason for a settlement developing. In the days before substantial bridges people crossed rivers at places where the water was shallower and often settlements grew up here. Anywhere with a ‘ford’ at the end of the place name is likely to have been one of these places. The rivers in those days would have looked very different to those we see now and much of the surrounding land would have been marshy. ‘Hurst’ refers to a wooded area, usually a hill. ‘ Cote’ comes from the Saxon word for house. So, let’s go on a tour of some of our local towns and villages. Maybe we start off at the settlement on the now forgotten River Camel (Campton) before walking along the river to the Sheep Ford (Shefford). Crossing the river and wet marshy ground we head north to land occupied by the southern Gifla tribe (Southill). From there we walk east to the area of thorny bush (Broom) before heading south again, crossing the river somewhere along the long ford (Langford) before reaching Hen Hill (Henlow) and finally ending our journey at the dry piece of land known as Aelfric’s Island (Arlesey).

Note: Our local villages will have developed over a long period of time and not all of the place names may have been in use at the same time. Some of the place names may have had multiple meanings. If you are interested in looking up other place names then the ‘Key to English Place Names’ is available at http://kepn.nottingham.ac.uk/ 10

CHILDREN AND PUPPETS

Encourage creativity in your child

H

Contribution thanks to

Philip Bowen The Puppet Workshop www.thepuppetworkshop.co.uk FB @ThePuppetWorkshopLtd

ave you ever wondered if puppets have uses outside the world of theatre and children’s entertainment? Several studies have been carried out using puppets to assess their value in child development and it has been found that they are useful in several different areas.

Social Skills

It’s well known that for children, role play is a vital way to develop empathy and an understanding of social situations. It also encourages communication skills. Puppets provide an ideal situation for children to engage in role-play because it allows them to communicate via the puppet, rather than directly. This makes it easier for the child to express themselves. A more structured play can create a situation where a child is motivated to communicate so they can tell the story and bring characters and creatures to life. Again, children perceive the puppet as performing rather than themselves and feel less pressure whilst speaking.

Motor Skills

Children are still developing their ability to move and interact with the world. Puppets require both fine motors skills (small, precise movements) and gross motor skills (larger movements and motions). Bringing a puppet to life requires patience and practice and a series of movements in sequence – children naturally become better at controlling their bodies, especially when using larger Bunraku puppets.

Creativity

If you want to encourage creativity in your child, have a few puppets to hand. Children will use them to create their own games and stories. A single puppet will become a different character one day to the next in the mind of a child with a good imagination. They can even be used to bring to life stories you read with your child! Some children like to do this but change the stories and endings to suit their own view on how it should have ended! Why not have puppets to hand next time you read with your child?

For more details on creative puppet workshops for children please see the website.

Oodles of airmiles and heavy carbon footprints don’t come into this. Just think about it! We support our local artisans wholeheartedly, with an ever-changing display of their wonderful products.

ROOM

101

Steve Maddox, who is 62 and lives in Arlesey with his wife. Steve moved here 37 years ago. He is a project manager in the magazine publishing/print industry but for many years worked as a designer and illustrator. We caught up with Steve to find out what he would put into Room 101…

Food Adverts

Food adverts and food programmes. I consider myself very experienced at eating food. I have had a lot of practice and know what I like. I do like to try new things though but can easily research these myself. I am perfectly capable of going to the shop or fridge and getting something to eat. However I have in the past got to a stage where I sometimes eat more than I should have, so adverts and food programmes are only serving my over-indulgence. It would be good for me not to see these.

Walking - Not looking

People walking and looking at their mobiles. I walk every day either in a town or on footpaths and pavements. I encounter so many people who have to look up at the last minute and swerve to avoid me because they are not watching where they are going. I have more recently made it my policy not to change my direction to avoid the zombies coming the other way (unless they are bigger than me or look too aggressive of course). Sometimes people are completely unaware they nearly had a collision. Don’t get me started on people wearing headphones!

Careless Drivers

Stupid drivers. Being the age that I am, my driving habits are mostly cautious. Its not to say I drive slowly but I’d like to think I am careful. Recently I have encountered more stupid driving on all types of roads. People seem to obsessed with getting to their destination ahead of everyone else. I let them go first knowing they have only jumped ahead a few cars at the most. If you are really that late then leave earlier. Maybe the government could introduce a ‘Stupid Tax’ for this type of driving.

Now it’s your turn! Do you want to banish your top peeve or worst nightmare to the depths of Room 101? Submit your top 3 at: www.livinglifemagazine.co.uk/room101 18

DELIVERY BOYS’ REVIEW We check out the local restaurants & eateries

.

with.

by John McBurney & Andrew Martin There’s also a vegetarian option as well as long as you order in advance.

Last month we spotted a board outside the Railway Steamer pub in Shefford promoting their ‘Sunday Roast’. Tempted, we popped in and reserved ourselves a table. Sunday soon arrived and after a morning spent delivering magazines in Clifton we made the short drive over to the Railway Steamer to enjoy a wellearned Sunday Roast. Located on Clifton Road the pub has ample parking in its private car park which extends around the side and back. We walked through the main door and entered the restaurant area, many of the dining tables were occupied, so we were quite relieved that we had pre-booked.

Our well-presented meals soon arrived, and they were a sight to behold, with freshly carved slices of roasted meat, a good helping of roast potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding, stuffing, an amazing array of vegetables and of course a gravy boat filled to the brim with mouth-watering gravy. The delivery boys were in heaven. In terms of vegetables, we counted so many, including cabbage, broccoli, mashed carrot and suede, sliced carrots, parsnips, fine beans, sprouts, mange tout and cauliflower cheese - all perfectly cooked with just the right amount of bite. You will have no trouble getting your ‘5-aday’ eating here! For us, it was ‘game-on’, as we tucked into our meals, delicious and outstanding. We soon moved onto dessert, Andrew chose the cheesecake with fresh fruit and John had the apple crumble

We were greeted by Anne, the new landlady, who gave us a lovely warm welcome and escorted us to our nicely laid table. The pub was surprisingly busy, with a friendly atmosphere and a good mix of people dining and socialising. Since taking over the pub in December 2019, Anne has worked tirelessly implementing improvements, and she is doing a fantastic job of it. It was really pleasing to see how the hard work and effort has paid off. Anne prides herself on her Sunday Roast. It is home-made, prepared and cooked fresh on the day. The roast options included chicken, beef or lamb, or a selection of all three. Andrew went for the roast beef whereas John opted for all three. 20

safety

Street watch UPdate Arlesey Street Watch have become the first Beds Police Streetwatch group to pass the Bikeability assessment enabling patrols to take place on bikes as well as on foot. Six Arlesey Street Watch volunteers undertook the training and assessment at the beginning of March, Arlesey Streetwatch Co-ordinator Alex Morris said “Most of us had done the cycling proficiency course as children and been riding to those standards. This course was an eye-opener; we were given skills to ride safely and confidently, and within the law. All Streetwatch patrols take place with a minimum of 2 people. The same will apply to patrols on bike. We will be riding 2 abreast, as instructed on the course, as this is the best way to keep cyclists safe”.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that new laws for overtaking cyclists came into effect in early 2020: Make sure you give at least the same room overtaking as you would a car – up to 1.5 metres. We are looking forward to our first bike patrol. We have 2 Police Streetwatch bikes to do this and it will mean we can cover most of Arlesey in one go. If you’d like to join Arlesey Street Watch or find out more call

Exciting Times for Stondon Scouts

Contribution thanks to

Catherine Wakely 1st Stondon Group Scout Leader

1stStondon.GSL@gmail.com

07968 082620

1

st Stondon are celebrating new leaders in their Scout section and planning ahead for the coming year, helping over 50 local girls and boys aged 6-14 to gain Skills for Life.

You may remember in the November issue we wrote about 1st Stondon’s Scout section, appealing for volunteers who’d like to help young people gain skills to succeed. In December the Scouts bid farewell and many thanks to Ian Montgomery, who had led and supported them through many adventures in the past three years; in January we were joined by three fabulous new Scout Leaders who are busy settling into the group. This year’s biggest event for the young people (and the leaders!) will be BigJam – the Biggleswade District Jamboree – in June. This activity weekend will be attended by all three sections, with Beavers sleeping under canvas for one night, and Cubs and Scouts for two. BigJam happens every other summer at Boyd Field in Henlow, and is a fantastic opportunity for the young people and leaders alike. We can’t wait to see what the organisers have in store! Thinking back to the last BigJam, in 2018, Arthur said: “I really enjoyed BigJam last time, there were lots of great activities and my favourite was the caving. I can’t wait to go again!” and Xanthe said: “I liked going around all the different things to do with my group. We had hot dogs for supper.” All the sections will be doing other camps during the year, as well as the yearly St George’s Day and Remembrance parades. Last Remembrance Sunday we were proud to attend the service at All Saints’ Church in Stondon. Two of our Beavers laid a wreath on behalf of the group, and the Scouts laid wreaths which they had made themselves. In the First World War the Scouting movement was only eight years old and many Scouts took an active part in the war effort – carrying messages, watching the coast, and guarding railway junctions, telegraph and telephone cables against enemy sabotage. We are proud of this heritage, and that our young people in 2020 are as courageous and resourceful as those Scouts long ago. We always welcome new leaders to join with the children in learning new #SkillsForLife and having a great time along the way.
