With the formation next year of the new West Suffolk Council a Boundary Review

has been undertaken. It was proposed that the 550 new houses would be in Rushbrooke with Rougham Ward. MHRA have always been against this proposal. Residents will use the existing Moreton Hall Facilities, as Rougham Village centre is 3 miles away on the south side of the A14. The land to the east of Lady Miriam Way, and south of Airfield Road, right up to Sow Lane is designated as the extension to Suffolk Business Park so a natural extension of the Town.

Garden Confidential

by Paul Clarke

What to do in your garden in August... Surely no one can complain about the wonderful summer weather we have been having this year in Suffolk. However for the gardener the absence of any rainfall has meant our lawns have turned into straw coloured dustbowls and watering containers and hanging baskets has become a daily need to avoid the plants shrivelling up in the warm humid conditions. Apart from doing a rain dance there is little that can be done other than to go with the flow. Those who have put in rain water butts will be in a better shape for watering their gardens and of course grass is very tough and it will return to its lush green colour when it eventually rains.

This months poem... “What wondrous life is this I lead! Ripe apples drop about my head; The luscious clusters of the vine. Upon my mouth do crush their wine; The nectarine and curious peach. Into my hands themselves do reach; Stumbling on melons, as I pass, Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass.� Andrew Marvell, Thoughts in a Garden

CHURCH NEWS

Christ Church MORETON HALL As I write this article we are enjoying something of a heat-wave on Moreton Hall. It is the beginning of July and there is very little prospect of rain. At this point England are still in the World Cup and there is some hope we might make the semi-finals. It is all set for a wonderful summer. But, having lived in England these sixty years, I know how quickly a summer can turn to a disaster. There is no reason at all why the second half of July and all of August, when you are reading this, could not be a complete washout. While the hopes and prayers of the entire nation may be with Gareth Southgate’s men at the moment, one poor refereeing decision, one missed tackle, or, worst of all, a missed penalty, could bring our world crashing round our ears. We need to keep our cool! We need to keep our cool is something that we hear a lot these days. We need to keep our cool at work; we need to keep our cool at home; we need to keep our cool with our friends, our relatives, our workmates, our children, our parents, our grandparents. When we are tired, when we have been disappointed, it is very hard not to fly off the handle. There are some of us who do not seem to have any cool to keep. They always seem to be permanently aggressive, or

permanently defensive, always getting in people’s faces, always winning and making us feel silly, stupid and defeated. We live in an age when people are discovering wellbeing, yoga, a whole range of such things, and even in these pages I have advised people to calm down, slow down, and to seek their inner self. I am reminded that Jesus did not work that way. He was ministering in one of the hottest countries; a country with a proud tradition that was occupied by a foreign power who had done terrible things to them and would do terrible things to them again, even expelling them from their own land. And yet this man of peace, this Prince of Peace, was able to give inner peace to all around Him. How was that achieved? Firstly, He encouraged people to hear His message and His message was that He was God and that He had come in search of the individuals he encountered. He had some wonderful things to share with them, like the love of God. But above all, He helped people to realise that they were loved, cared for, appreciated, and precious to God and to others. Secondly, they had to believe and accept His message. It is one thing to hear you are loved, it’s quite another to know that you are.
