EDITOR’S LETTER

WELCOME TO THE

OCTOBER ISSUE Hello and welcome to our October issue.

So, it’s not even Halloween yet and already the Christmas decorations have started appearing in all the shops! What is going on? I’m not quite ready to admit Christmas is creeping up on us just yet. Hope you have all been enjoying our Indian Summer, warm and sunny days, but a little bit chilly in the mornings and evenings, my only complaint is that it can make it difficult to know what to wear each day. If like me you love Halloween go to pages 80 and 81 for a few fun buys, not just for dressing up but for the house too! And if you want to cook a nice autumn meal, turn to pages 38 and 40 for some recipe ideas that are sure to make you feel warm inside. We’ll see you in November, when I may be finally ready to come to terms with the fact it’ll nearly be Christmas. Until next month…

From your new local councillors... Patrick Chung and Ann Williamson

DEFIBRILLATOR Summer is coming to an end but as I write it has been a beautiful September day, albeit a little chilly. Following on from a less busy August Patrick and I are up and running again. We were delighted to help fund a defibrillator at the Firs and spent a very pleasant afternoon helping them celebrate the purchase of this, accompanied by the Bury Rickshaw.

Hardwick Heath Play Park A number of residents have asked about the refurbishment of the play park on the Heath which I have followed up with the Service Manager at West Suffolk Council. The play area is checked on a regular basis and although looking very tired it is safe. A more suitable location within the grounds and away from the car park is being considered. Timescale will be 2020/21 or at the latest 2021/22. 10 | OCTOBER 2019


Repair Work on the Estate

We had some very good news today from Richard Rout, County Councillor, informing us that the footpath in Caie Walk on the Nowton Estate will be undergoing repairs between Monday 30th September and Friday 8th November although these dates could change depending upon weather conditions. We are working with Richard to see if we can get a date for repairs to be carried out on the surface of Mayfield Road, Barons Road has recently had some repair work carried out.

Speed Indicator

You may have noticed the speed indicator device in Hardwick Lane, Wilkes Road and Mayfield Road, this is moved usually after two weeks and we will be making another application for a site in Nowton Road.

RESTART A HEART SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE TUESDAY 15TH OCTOBER 7PM

Restart a Heart is an annual event run by the Resuscitation Council to teach CPR to as many people as possible. St John Ambulance has supported this event since 2015 and last year gave CPR and defibrillator demonstrations to over 6000 people which is just incredible. This year the St John Ambulance Bury St Edmunds Unit will be holding a Restart a Heart event at Southgate Community Centre on Tuesday 15th October 7pm. The event will be a 1hr session covering how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator. By learning these basis skills you could save a life. This event is free to attend, please do come along and ensure you arrive in good time. If you have any queries regarding this event please contact anya.pratt@sja.org.uk OCTOBER 2019 | 11

SOUTHGATE Commun SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP WORKING FOR YOU Your community centre has been owned by the SCP since 2011. It is a registered charity run by a partnership of local people and Southgate Church, with a group of trustees working on your behalf chaired by the effervescent Andy Abbot. Jackie Tooley is the Centre Manager and Jo Thomas is our bookkeeper. We are in good shape, but it would be great if we could find a few more people to help. There are around six meetings a year, usually lasting no more than an hour, and we hope that there would be a willingness to help out from time to time. OUR AGM IS ON THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBER at 6.30pm in the Small Hall. Do come along. We don’t only run the community centre but do what we can to improve our local environment. Our three local councillors – Richard Rout, Patrick Chung and Ann Williamson are all trustees and attend our meetings which gives us a unique opportunity to engage with them on the issues that affect you. Let us know your concerns and we will see if we can help.

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY – VALENTINE’S BALL 2020 – Saturday 15th February Make your reservation now for this well established event in the local social calendar – dancing to a live band, lovely three course dinner with wine, and a chance to raise money for local charities.. This year we made over £1000 for West Suffolk Hospital’s My WiSH Butterfly Appeal. Tickets are priced at £80 for a double (pro rata for a single|), and are superb value for money. What about giving a voucher as a Christmas present with a difference? People often love experiences rather than things these days.

BINGO Friday 25th October & Friday 22nd November at 7pm. Eyes down 7.15pm prompt! (NO BINGO DECEMBER)

Southgate Church’s Annual Holiday Club This took place in the last week in August and what a wild time was had by all. Over 40 children came along to discover how great and awesome God is, what an amazingly, fascinating world we live in and how much the God who created it all loves each and every one of us. There were games, crafts, stories, songs and bible stories – and much more. A family tea party on the Friday evening had a large attendance and a good time was had by all. Our pictures show all of the fun on offer throughout the week.

Close Encounters of the Turd Kind

W

ild birds are easy to see. Look out your window, or go outside, and the chances are that you’ll see a bird in a few minutes. Wild mammals, on the other hand, are much harder to spot. That’s why its easier to find evidence of mammals passing by than it is to actually see them. And one of the best bits of evidence left by mammals are their turds. Some of us are lucky enough to see a hedgehog in our garden or on our streets. Its much more likely that the hedgehogs come at night, when we’re asleep, but they may leave you some evidence of their visit? Have you found a black cylinder on your patio, about 2 3cm long? Poke it with a stick and there may well be hundreds of black shiny bits in it, which are of course the wing cases of beetles its eaten but not digested.

Foxes use their turds to advertise themselves to other foxes, so they leave there droppings in conspicuous places, on top of a tall tussock of grass perhaps, or on a fallen log. Fox poo tapers to a sharp point and is usually bent round by 180o as it tapers. Often you will be able to see fur or feathers in the turd, shiny with beetles wing cases like a hedgehogs, or in autumn stuffed with partially digested berries. Rabbits leave little round pellets, often pale coloured, and muntjac leave black, slightly larger pellets not quite so round. You can be a mammal detective without ever seeing them at all. Woodland Ways next work party is at Natterers Wood on Sunday 13th October at 10am.

Dear reader,

my

cha ri ty Registered Charity No. 1049223

So our second soapbox challenge took place last week and we are thrilled to announce we raised an astonishing £19,500! To say we are chuffed is an understatement!

theme tune, Men in Black, The A Team and Pirates of the Caribbean. Some were good, some were bad and some danced like their dads but it was up to the judges to choose their favourite.

The day started nice and early at 6am when Mount Road was officially closed to traffic. It was then all hands on deck as we unloaded 100 crowd barriers, 100 road separators and 200 straw bales to line the course!

Once the team had performed their presentation the soapbox and its driver were pushed off the ramp. They headed to the first jump which was a window frame courtesy of Frames Conservatories Direct and which contained water balloons that burst when hit! They then sped down to the chicane of straw bales and another jump before hitting the laser beam to mark their time to the finish line.

This year we had so many amazing volunteers and they were all just fantastic. Before we knew it, the course was complete with staging, ramps, jumps and a chicane, Soapbox City was ready to receive the teams and the food stations were up and running. 21 teams soon turned up and we could finally see the soapboxes we’d been hearing about over the past few months and they were just brilliant. We had a police riot van, Del Boy’s yellow Robin Reliant, a Formula One racing car, a space warmer and a ball pit to name a few. The work that the teams put in was just incredible and they were all excited to race them. At 10.30am we walked the teams up the course ready for the action to start. It was wonderful to see so many people turn up to cheer them on. Children waved chequered flags and the music blared out as we reached the top. Each team then took to the stage where our judges, Richard Hope from Treatt, Steve Dunn and Jan Bloomfield, marked them on their soapbox. Teams then danced to the likes of the Anchor Man

When all teams had completed their run we had a quick break and then back up the course for round two. This time it was all about the speed and the drivers were certainly much braver! Most improved on their time or, if it was slower, it was usually due to an over enthusiastic driver losing a wheel or landing in a straw bale! Feedback was amazing for the day and it was just wonderful to see so many happy faces enjoying the sunshine and the entertainment. Huge thanks to all our volunteers, we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of them. We will be back for 2020 so if you want to take part, drop us an email, fundraising@wsh.nhs.uk and we will let you know as soon as we have a date in the diary. Sue Smith, Head of Fundraising @mywishcharity

The LSS Stall wit

LSS continues to be out and about raising awareness....

LSS was delighted to receive an invite to the annual Thurlow Fayre on the 1st September. Whilst the sun shone, the LSS stall was well visited with the Tombola and sales of raffle tickets for LSS’s donated painting raising a maginficent £85. The 2019 Thurlow Fayre raised between £5,000 to £6,000 and from this, funds will be donated to various village organisations and local charities which the Fayre supports. Many thanks to David and Pat Pearse along with Graham and Mollie Newstead for doing sterling work at the LSS stall. Not forgetting Loki the Jack Russell too! Watch this space for news of where LSS will be next..... LSS works tirelessly to raise awareness of lymphoedema and lipoedema and to also fundraise to purchase clinical equipment for the West Suffolk Lymphoedema Service for the benefit of patients and staff alike. But, despite all LSS’s best efforts, it has been reported to LSS that disappointingly some GP surgeries and health professionals still remain unaware of these two chronic lifelong conditions and even that there is a West Suffolk Lymphoedema Service. LSS is asking for your help to raise awareness of lymphoedema and Lipodema, that there is a Lymphoedema Service available for patients in West Suffolk, and also about LSS too. Passing on this article would be a really good way to assist anyone would like to learn more, so a huge Thank You if you have taken the time to do this

LSS Meeting Diary Dates: October 7th and December 2nd

7pm – 9pm at at Moreton Hall Community Centre. Do come along and find out more about living with, and managing, Lymphoedema and Lipoedema in a relaxed and friendly setting, along with a cuppa and biscuit.

At our September meeting we had a very interesting talk by Libby Ranzetta about ‘Bats’, the many species and how they live, breed and feed. Libby had been fascinated by bats as a child and forLAB 5 FULL PAGE FLIGHT years ran the Bury Bat Hospital, but due to an allergy to the mealworms being fed to the bats was unable to do this anymore. Libby’s colleague Tracey had brought along a tiny Pipistrelle bat for us to see called ‘Robyn’ which had been found injured in a kitchen in Woolpit. Robyn has been nursed back to health but as she was no longer able to fly could not be released back into the wild and remains in the bat hospital. Surprisingly the skeleton of a bat is very similar to our own human skeleton. They are the only flying mammal and give birth to one live baby per year. We all then congratulated our member Janet Hardiker on her fantastic achievement of cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats. In October we will all be getting in step when Jo Brown will be teaching us the moves in Zumba Gold.

In August members were given the opportunity of a tour of the Guildhall in Bury. Our guide gave an informative, factual tour through the rooms and round the gardens. The Guildhall now has a new look after being restored, so well worth a visit. The monthly meeting in August welcomed Joan who gave a humorous talk about cats. Being a passionate lover of them Joan spoke not only about her own cats she has had through the years but more importantly about Bury’s Stray Cat Fund whereby she is very much involved in the charitable cause and all the good works that they do. Fostering a cat is just one area and Joan herself is doing just that. In September CPSG held their annual AGM. A time for reflection of the year gone by and planning for the year ahead. Looking at ways to improve and build upon what we have to encourage new growth. Living in pain can be debilitating and can make you feel fatigued, trying to deal with all the aspects and side effects of the pain itself. Pain can interfere with your daily life and keep you from doing the things you want to do. This can become a vicious circle leading to low self-esteem and isolation. Accepting that the pain may not go away completely is very hard however finding the tools and skills that are effective for the type of pain you are suffering from, with some adapting, can bring back perspective and help you to resume your life in some of the ways of how it used to be. Also it can change the relationship of the pain itself. 28 | OCTOBER 2019

Positively Crafty Time is marching on and we are now into early autumn and planning ahead for the events that will occur. As you can see a Christmas card was achieved in the September session. Using white hammer card, a die cut depicting a traditional scene with the sentiment ‘Twas the night before Christmas’, all set on a gold background. In the October session this theme will continue although a different type of card will be achieved. Sessions take place from 1pm-4pm on the first Thursday of each month. Refreshments included. CPSG’s next meeting is on Thursday 17th October from 2pm-4pm. A speaker presentation will take place during the first hour followed by refreshments. Both meetings are held in the small hall of Southgate Community Centre. Come and share your journey and reach out to others in your position. Have a smile and a laugh together and be accepted as you are. CPSG offer a warm welcome, friendship with likeminded people and a change of focus.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

What is Seasonal Affectiv Seasonal affective disorder (or SAD) affects many of us, as our energy levels undergo a gradual change from summer to autumn. Dark, chilly mornings make it harder to get out of bed, and it’s common to feel more lethargic and crave comforting foods as we adjust to the change in seasons.

What is SAD? Seasonal Affective Disorder is caused by seasonal light changes, and the effect that this has on the part of the brain that regulates a whole range of bodily functions. The nerve centres in the brain, which control our daily rhythms and moods, are stimulated by the amount of light entering the eyes. During the night, a gland in the brain called the pineal gland produces melatonin, which makes us drowsy and suppresses the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin. At daybreak, natural light stops this process - but on dull days there’s not enough light to do so. As a result our body’s natural clock, known as our circadian rhythm, becomes disrupted. Many people affected by SAD start to notice symptoms around the time that the clocks go back and the days get shorter. People who live in Scotland or the North of England, where there is even less sunlight during the winter, are more likely to be affected, and symptoms tend to be worse when we’ve had a particularly bad winter following on from a dull, wet summer.

32 | OCTOBER 2019

What are the symptoms of SAD? Typical symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder include: • sleep problems (too much or interrupted sleep) • lethargy • overeating • depression • social withdrawal • anxiety • difficulty with concentration and memory • loss of libido and mood changes. Unlike depression, SAD is only an issue during the winter months, with most people experiencing a rapid reduction in symptoms when spring arrives and the clocks go forward. SAD can be hard to define and diagnose. For that reason, symptoms are viewed on a sliding scale: Level 1: This makes us overeat, oversleep and feel a bit grumpy. Most people recognise this behaviour in themselves, their friends or their family as we move into winter. Level 2: This affects people more seriously, and is known as Sub-syndromal SAD. Symptoms include mild depression, sleep disturbance, over-eating and anxiety.

Level 3: This is associated with moderate to severe depression, panic attacks, constant anxiety, aches and pains, withdrawal from social life, loss of libido and an overwhelming need to hibernate. Men and women of all ages can be affected by SAD, and there have been more reported cases over the last few years due to a run of harsh winters and damp summers. As the causes are environmental, it’s possible to be affected by SAD even if you have never experienced it in the past. In fact, it’s not unusual for older people to notice symptoms for the first time if they have to spend more time than usual indoors due to health or mobility problems.

How to treat SAD If you’re experiencing symptoms of SAD, it’s important to visit your doctor who will carry out an assessment to check whether or not you are depressed. You’ll be asked questions about your mood, your lifestyle and your eating and sleeping patterns. If you’ve had symptoms for two or more years in a row, and usually feel better when


FOOD & DRINK HEALTH & BEAUTY

ve Disorder (SAD) ? spring arrives, your doctor may diagnose SAD. Fortunately, SAD can usually be successfully treated, and mild to moderate cases are often managed without medication.

Light box therapy One choice of treatment is light therapy, which involves sitting in front of a special ‘light box’ which produces very bright light. You can sit in front of the light for around an hour per day, during which time you can carry on with their normal activities, such as reading, working or watching TV.

Exercise and natural light In mild cases, regular outdoor exercise - such as a daily walk - can be all that’s needed to combat SAD. Natural daylight, even on a typical British winter day, is better than a lightbox - and exercise is known to make us feel better. Morning is the best time to get out into the light, especially in winter, as this will improve mood and metabolism throughout the day. Indoor lighting, under which we try to lead normal lives in winter, is just no substitute.

The boxes are not available on the NHS, but many companies offer a home trial so that you can check that it works for you before you buy. Sitting in front of a 10,000 lux bright white lightbox, at a distance of about 14 inches, for 30-60 minutes in the morning should help. Buyers should make sure that the box is from an approved company and is medically certified for use in SAD.

The 19th hole

Welcome back to the 19th Hole, this month see’s the leaves falling from the trees and that chill returns to the air… but it is only 192 days until THE MASTERS tournament and the start of the 2020 season in the UK.

September saw an amazing SOLHIEM CUP It was golf at the highest level coming down to the very last putt on the 18th green, what an amazing event not only for lady’s golf but for the game is a whole. Europe won The Solheim Cup for the first time since 2013 after an incredible finish to the final day singles, which ended with Suzann Pettersen holing the decisive putt on the 18th green to send the thousands of fans into raptures. If you didn’t get chance to watch it, find the highlights online and experience an incredible golfing event! Its at this time of year that we should all be reflecting on our seasons. What we did well, what could have gone better and what we want to work on for next season. However, if winter practice is not your thing and you are still looking to start next season better than the last then the PGA LIFE 365 might just have the option for you.

PGA LIFE 365 - PRE SEASON PLAYING & COACHING TRIP Myself and fellow PGA Professional Simon Byford are running are now annual pre season playing and coaching trip. Our 2020 trip see’s us heading over to SPAIN for some pre season sun and enjoy playing some great courses and you all will receive any coaching you desire throughout the trip.

Coaches Corner – EVERYONE LOVES A TAKEAWAY This month we look at TAKEAWAY’S, this has nothing to do with your favorite weekend orders but more the early movement in your golf swing. So many of us (me included) get this first movement either a little quick, inside or picked up and this can (not for everyone) cause issues into the backswing or downswing. If this sounds like something you do, then why not try this very quick and easy drill to help your takeaway. Set Up: Place two balls up at address and then place your club in between so that the back of the club is resting against the back ball. The Push: The idea is to push the back ball away straight leading to a wide takeaway position. Any other movements wont allow the ball to be pushed back straight or stay close to you. Swing: Make your normal swing and finish in a balanced position watching another good shot. On Course: When you’re on the course you can still use this drill by imagining the ball being there both in practice swings and real shots. This simple drill has helped me and others over many years, I often use it in warm ups to make sure the swing isn’t being rushed into position early in my swing. Why not give it ago the next time you are having a practice. The guys at PGA LIFE 365 have a video on this topic if you would like a more in depth look at these aspects and more ways to putt better. Please visit them on YouTube at PGA LIFE 365 and don’t forget to help them out with a LIKE and hit SUBCRIBE to get all of their content FREE OF CHARGE every time they release a video. I hope this edition of the 19th Hole has helped, if you would like any advice or help with your golf game please get in contact. Here’s to a great month of golf, and I will see you in October. If you quote MHD or SGD when booking your first lesson with me then you will receive £5 off, below are my contact details please don’t hesitate to contact me.

VEGAN APPLE CRUMBLE This vegan apple crumble recipe is dairy- and gluten-free, and packed with tart Bramley apples, warming cinnamon and nutty crumble.

Ingredients:

3 Bramley apples (about 900g), peeled, cored and cut into 2-3cm chunks ½ lemon, juiced 60g sultanas 2 tsp ground cinnamon 60g maple syrup For the crumble topping 175g gluten-free plain flour 100g free-from pure oats 90g dairy-free spread or coconut oil 50g pecans, roughly chopped 50g hazelnuts, roughly chopped 50g dried cranberries 100g maple syrup Dairy-free cream or ice cream, to serve (optional) 40 | OCTOBER 2019


FOOD & DRINK

Method:

Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Put the apples in a 25 x 16cm ovenproof dish at least 5cm deep. Pour over the lemon juice and toss to coat. Scatter over the sultanas and cinnamon, then drizzle with 60g maple syrup. Mix well, then put the dish on a baking tray and bake for 10 mins. Meanwhile, mix the flour and oats in a large bowl. Rub in the spread with your fingertips, then stir in the nuts, cranberries and 100g maple syrup until just combined. Don’t overmix as it can become sticky.

Leave to cool slightly, then serve with dairy-free cream or ice cream, if you like.

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT, THE FLOOR’S THE TARGET! Infusions Group to take to the sky for My WiSH Butterfly Appeal. On Saturday 28th September, 5 brave volunteers from Bury St Edmunds based business Infusions Group, which owns the ICE Café, plus 2 friends are taking the plunge from 13,000 feet (2 miles high!) at Beccles Drop Zone in a sponsored skydive to raise funds for the My WiSH Charity. The company thrill seekers are Customer Support Manager Paul Bluett, Warehouse Supervisor Dylan Mitchell, Sales Team Member Piers Symons, Driver Andy Moss and ICE Café Chef Tom Jonaitis and the boys are being joined by friends Rob Newman and Wayne Hailstone who volunteered once they heard about the plan. The group chose to take on the challenge after hearing My WiSH Head of Fundraising, Sue Smith, speak passionately about the charity’s Butterfly Appeal at a recent staff quiz night for the charity, which the Infusions Group have chosen to support as its charity of the year 2019. The Butterfly Appeal, which is due to be officially launched in the next month or so, is aimed at supporting the hospital’s huge proportion of palliative and end of life patients and My WiSH Charity works closely with staff to find out what is needed and where it can help to ensure relatives, friends and loved ones are cared for too as this in turn, gives the patient comfort. Packs are created when someone is called unexpectedly into hospital which consists of tissues, water, wipes, toothbrush and toothpaste among other things. Just little things to make patients more comfortable during their stay. They also provide day beds and are seeking to purchase more as they allow relatives to stay with 42 | OCTOBER 2019

their loved ones but also get some much needed sleep whilst never leaving their side. It also pays for training so that the nurses can learn how to administer pain medicine without the need to wait for a doctor. Jumper Dylan Mitchell has mixed thoughts about the jump, saying: “I’m excited for the jump and fingers crossed all goes well! I’m going to be conquering two phobias doing this jump – flying and heights… I regret it already to be honest, but it’s a great cause and if I can support it by raising some funds while crossing something off my bucket list then it’s a win win!” Another jumper, Piers Symons, had a few less nerves about the jump. He said, “I’m confident and excited. It’s something different to do with colleagues. I’m looking forward to watching colleagues jump from a plane whilst I sit back and laugh!” Sue Smith, Head of Fundraising at My WiSH added: “We are so grateful to Infusions Group and ICE for their continued support and to these amazing guys who are willing to jump out of a plane to raise money for us! The money they raise will make such a difference to our end of life patients and their loved ones and we can’t thank everyone enough”. If you would like to donate to the cause, or find out more information, please contact Sarah Stamp at sarah@infusionsgroup.com.

All Change! Autumn is here and with it comes our new timetable, new classes and new teachers! We are running more classes than ever before and look forward to welcoming some new students. There is a lot to try and we hope we can find a class for everyone, especially those that feel that exercise isn’t possible for them. In addition to our regular yoga and Pilates classes we are running early morning classes from 7am for early rises, those who work or rush off for the school run. Accessible Yoga begins, every Wednesday afternoon, for those with limited mobility - wheelchair users welcome. Pregnancy yoga is every Monday evening, from 16 weeks gestation. Our, Sunday morning, Yoga in the park has been such a success over the summer that we are moving indoors and running the class at the centre throughout the winter. A big thank you to everyone who came along to the Abbey Gardens to enjoy a little nature with your class. We hope to add a few outdoor workshops and retreat days to our events next year. Woodland Wind Down will continue through the winter months. Our new workshop programme is coming together and we have a few new regular monthly classes such as Chakra dance to spice things up a bit. All in all it is going to be a lovely end to the year. Hope to see you all soon.

Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum

It’s Nearly All Over! Hi and welcome to our last article for the active period of the Museums year. Yes, the summer season has finally reached its end – six months have flown past. It seems that every month I have focused on thanking many people. From the volunteers - committee and members, our supporters, sponsors and donating friends – the list seems endless. The Museum has had a varied past for support but over the recent two years it has blossomed. The most significant reasons are firstly, the new road layout – access and visibility has been greatly improved. Secondly, the support from the local media, significantly the Moreton Hall Directory and the Bury Free Press, has been excellent. Thirdly – support from YOU. Your visits on a Sunday, on special visits or on event days have been BRILLIANT. We know our attendance figures have exceeded our expectations, which has also reflected on our income from catering sales and donations. Thank you again for your great and continuing support. Our final ‘official’ Sunday opening is the 6th October but if the weather holds good we are planning some maintenance work on Sundays during the month and, if we are here, the kettle will be on for a cuppa. If you can volunteer to help we would gratefully accept all ‘hands’. It is a great pleasure to bring the report from the ‘Fly-In – Visit the Museum by Air’, on September 14th and 15th. The North Weald Marshaller’s (NWM) event brought a marvelous selection of aircraft to the airfield – and visitors to the Museum. Blessed with fantastic weather both days saw amazing aircraft, aviators, ‘spotters’, friends and visitors. With 87 aircraft on the Saturday and 63 on the Sunday, giving a 150 total! This ‘gathering’ exceeded the previous total number of 137 over a weekend (so we are informed). The variety of aircraft and the distances they had travelled was also amazing. From the North West, to the South East, to the South West - Tiger Moth, DH Dragonfly, Bulldog, Cessna, Piper, Vans, 50 | OCTOBER 2019

Fairchild, …. and more …. what a collection!!! Thank you – especially to the Rougham Estate, Skyward Flight School, the NWM’s, the volunteers, Quirky Cakes, the RCTAM Chairman and committee, the pilots and ALL who joined us. (It was also reported - the number of aircraft on the Saturday was the largest gathering, that day, in the UK!) Future Events In December our Departures Service will remember all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the 1939 – 1945 conflict. Please join us on Sunday December 8th, 10.45 hrs. for 11.00. All are very welcome. The ceremony will feature a wreath laying by the Museum volunteers and external groups who support us, a talk on the airfields past and a light buffet. So as I close this month’s edition, we look to dark, cold evenings, shorter days, reading, writing and modeling sessions BUT a new, great 2020 season beginning in April! See you next month, take care. Our details: www.rctam94th.co.uk E-mail: info@rctam94th.co.uk Telephone: 07931 971771

Sybil Andrews Academy

Sybil Andrews students celebrate first ever GCSE results Students and staff at Sybil Andrews Academy are celebrating their first ever set of GCSE results that place them amongst the highest performing group of similar schools in the country. The Bury St Edmunds school has reported that more than 10% of students achieved a grade 9 while 54% of our learners achieved a “Standard Pass” in both English and Maths - equivalent to an A*-C grade. These results place the school within the top 20% of similar schools across the country and the Strong Pass measure in English and Maths places Sybil Andrews in the top 5% of similar schools nationally. Headteacher Trenica King said: “These results are a real testament to the determination, resilience and aspirations of our students and staff and to the support of our parent body. “Starting at a new school is always a challenge and so it is so pleasing that Sybil Andrews has achieved so much for the great students in this year group. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in this wonderful set of results.” Notable achievements include Hannah Walker who achieved five Grade 9s and four Grade 8s, Caitlin McKay who achieved 4 Grade 9s; Lily Genner and Megan Crow who each achieved 3 Grade 9s and Tyler Logan and Josh Kelly who also achieved 2 Grade 9s.

Ms King added: “All of the staff hope that our Year 11 students will come back and visit the fantastic new block that opens for the start of the new term and join us at our awards evening in November to celebrate their successes. “We know that this has been a fantastic start to our journey to be the outstanding school we all want. We will, as always, look to build upon this success and strive to provide the first-class education that our students deserve.” Student reaction Hannah Walker was given an early birthday present after achieving five Grade 9s and four Grade 8s in her GCSEs. Hannah turns 16 next week and is one of the youngest students to pick up her results from Sybil Andrews Academy.

Hannah Walker

She said: “My main emotion at the moment is one of relief. I set myself high expectations so I am pleased with the grades I got. “It has been a nervous wait, especially over the last week, but I am now looking forward to taking my A-levels. “It has been special being one of the first students at Sybil Andrews Academy. Because we were the first, I think we have all bonded. I have loved my time at the school.”

But on 1 November, the Club will be moving to Moreton Hall Community Centre! The Club caters for children aged between 5 and 13. Current membership is around 30, including both boys and girls. New members are always welcome. Just come along to the Main Hall at the Community Centre on any Friday at 6 pm. The Club will teach children who have not played chess before. It costs ÂŁ3.00 per session, but there is a discount if paying for the rest of the school term. There is also a large discount for two or more children from the same family.

HOME + LIFESTYLE Hi I’m Abi and I am a mum to my gorgeous 2 year old. I have been a primary school teacher for over 4 years, and have had a long term passion for helping and inspiring children. My most enjoyable years of teaching were in year 1 where I worked hard to make sure the children were having so much fun that they forgot they were actually learning! Having my own child has reinforced my belief in the power of play and some of our most treasured memories are times when we are reading stories and books. I am so excited to share this with your amazing little people.

Let me tell you about the two different classes I run... Tiddlers for aged sitting – 2 Each class is based around a different nursery rhyme each week. Nursery rhymes are a brilliant way in to learning our language. They teach rhythm and rhyme which often mimic the natural way we talk. They also help children to develop a sense of community as everyone around them is enjoying the same song. We then focus on their gross and fine motor skills and how to help parents to develop these in their children, whilst understanding that all children develop at their own pace. The children then get to spend some time in a child led environment – playing and learning. The activities are based around the nursery rhyme and help them to develop many different skills.

Pre-school class for ages 2-5 A wonderful preschool class which aims to support and empower parents and caregivers in teaching their children the skills they need for reading and writing, all through PLAY! We begin by learning a bit of phonics – but really at the beginning this is all about listening skills! Nothing too high risk, just a bit of fun. Really I see this part of the class as me giving the adults the skills and confidence to begin this at home. The children get a chance to do some fun mark making in a different material each week – so far we have used soil and sand and plan to use glitter soon (sorry!). Then – my favourite bit – we read a story linked to our theme. Like with Tiddlers, the activities all help to immerse the children in the story and the theme. They get to choose what is interesting to them! As well as phonics, we focus on listening skills, oral blending, fine motor control skills, expressive arts and more.

We would love to see you at a class soon! In the meantime, here are some play ideas for you to begin using at home for October. Autumn really feels like it is here so let’s help children to learn about the change of seasons.

• Go on a woodland walk and collect anything that interests the children – leaves, sticks, stones etc. Then make a woodland crown out of all their treasures. • You could also use the things they found to paint with. Dipping a pine cone in paint and printing with it creates some interesting textures. • Find a pile of leaves and listen to their crunch! • Bake some gingerbread men. Give the little ones a separate bowl of taste safe ingredients to have a play. Let them feel the textures and use their senses to enjoy baking. Including tasting them!! • Sit spot – why not find a dry, quiet place and sit quietly. It’s amazing what things you can hear when you really listen. • Toast marshmallows • Use watery paint, straws and black paper to create some fireworks pictures.

Check the boiler timer

Put on a sweater

If you have radiator thermostats

For those of you with smart meters

Keep doors closed in your home

use them to keep heating low or turned off in empty rooms. There is no point in heating unused areas, it just wastes energy and money.

keep a note of the meter readings, you may be shocked at how much energy is used in your home when you are out.

ST EDMUNDSBURY GARDENERS’ SOCIETY Bringing people ‘who love gardening’ together In August the Society enjoyed their summer garden party. This took place on a very hot Bank holiday Sunday in a beautiful and typically English garden. Members, arrived, sun hats at the ready, though the garden afforded plenty of shade. It was an opportunity to catch up with fellow gardeners in a relaxing and tranquil setting. It was, as they say, a most pleasant affair. September saw us meeting at the Quaker Meeting House with a speaker from BTO presenting on garden birds followed by the opportunity to catch up over tea and biscuits.

In October, on the 22nd, our speaker is Karen Kenny and she will be talking to us on the subject of “The Magic and Mystery of Herbs”. Karen is a very knowledgeable and humorous speaker and the evening will without doubt be enjoyable. Venue: Quaker Meeting House, St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds. Time: 7.30pm For further details and information on the Society please contact Peter on 07775 581583 or email burygardener@yahoo.com

Garden Confidential by Tom Clarke

What to do in your garden in October.. In October we see the end of British Summer time on the 27th of October, when the clocks go back and the shorter days really do begin. There is a definite chill in the air and the jumpers need to come out when working in the garden. Usually it is very pleasant conditions for working in the garden.

Tom’s jobs for the month.. General Maintenance O With weeks of leaf fall to come use your mower to hoover up leaves from your lawn. The leaves make a great addition to your compost heap. If you haven’t got one start one. It can be made from a few old pallets or buy one. O Take advantage of any dry days to paint fences, sheds etc with a preservative O Cover ponds with netting to keep out falling leaves. O Hang a mirror in your garden – This can add a point of interest but carefully consider where you place it. O Clean down garden furniture and store it for

62 | OCTOBER 2019

the winter or buy a furniture cover if it is to stay outside.

Flower Garden O Bulbs - now is the time to think about how to brighten up the garden when it wakes after hibernation. Bulbs are incredible value, for they have instant impact, but it is always better to buy few varieties and larger numbers of each. The earlier you plant bulbs the better, for the soil is still warm, and getting the roots established before the weather closes in will help them fight wet and rot. O Cut back all of the tall shrubs such as lavatera and buddleia.


HOME + LIFESTYLE

O Now is the time to take hardwood cuttings from buddleia, flowering currants and forsythia O Good time to plant bare root trees O Dahlias should be lifted at the end of the month. Cut down the stems to a few inches. Dig up the tubers and remove any loose soil and store upside down for a couple of weeks to dry. Remove more soil and store in dark cool frost free trays with a little dry compost if you wish. O Prune climbing roses O Clear any fallen rose leaves to prevent black spot from over wintering.

Vegetable & Fruit Garden O Harvest any pumpkins and squashes before the first frost O Plant garlic O Lift any remaining potatoes before slug damage occurs O In the vegetable plot you can now plant spring cabbage and overwintering onion sets. O Plant new fruit trees and bushes. Choose ‘bare root’ plants, they usually cost less than pot grown ones. O Good time to divide your rhubarb crowns O Continue to harvest your apples and pears

Plant of the Month HEUCHERA

Heucheras are com monly known as Alu m Ro . They are excellent for formal bedding sch ot or Coral Bells emes and come in a vast palette of col ours. They bloom fro m late spring throug early summer but, wit h h their colourful foli age the flower garden wit h colour well into aut , they brighten umn. They grow we with some shade, the ll darker leaved varieti es will tolerate full sun. Heucheras are in the main resistant to pests and diseases and unlike hostas are pretty resistant to slu gs and snails. Heuchera plants nee d to be divided every two to four years when the stems beg in to look woody. Div ide give the plants time to re-establish before in the spring to win plants and gently pul l them apart if possib ter. Dig up the le or cut through the roots with a sharp kni fe or shovel.

This months poem...

“Clouds gather, treetops toss and sway; But pour us wine, an old one! That we may turn this dreary day To golden, yes, to golden! Autumn has come, but never fear, Wait but a little while yet, Spring will be here, the skies will clear, And fields stand deep in violets. The heavenly blue of fresh new days Oh, friend, you must employ them Before they pass away. Be brave! Enjoy them; oh, enjoy them!” - Theodor Storm, A Song in October

Booming Moreton Hall Writes Chris Ridgeon

Eighteen months ago, I wrote that Moreton Hall was set to capitalise on the plentiful opportunities for investment and growth for businesses around the area and so it has proved. We’ve finished celebrating our 90-years as independent chartered accountants and business advisers. Among the oldest independent firms in this region as we head for the magic century, experience tells us that the principle features of Bury St Edmunds’ economy are the sheer diversity of businesses. The district’s commercial wealth is underpinned by agriculture, food production, tourism and increasingly the service sector. We live in the largest urban area in West Suffolk with a population approaching 44,000 and are part of the prosperous Cambridge sub-region which benefits greatly from its location on the A14 corridor linking Felixstowe with the Midlands. There are already a dozen business parks and industrial estates. Among the most significant is the 57-acre Suffolk Business Park along the new Eastern Relief Road from Skyliner Way, where our head office is located, to junction 45 of the A14. Almost exactly half-way between Ipswich and Cambridge. This park is expected to bring an estimated 14,000 jobs and £275m of inward investment over the next 20-plus years. The relief road itself leads a new 500home development, and provides better access to the Sybil Andrews Academy. Most importantly, for those who live here, it has eased the local Moreton Hall traffic congestion. Nine of the top 100 companies in Norfolk and Suffolk are based in Bury St Edmunds, with turnovers ranging from £50m. to £1.2b. Significant development is taking place across the district and it’s a great place for businesses to thrive with the potential for future growth and development. Among them are many with whom we have been associated over the years. We relocated nearly five years ago from the town centre and settled on Moreton Hall because just as our business has been linked to our clients over the decades, our future naturally depends on our existing client-base and potential new ones. We, like them, see great potential in this area.

WORLD TRIATHLON SERIES Over the last few months

I’ve discovered what I think could become one of my new favourite television spectator sports. I am of course talking about the World Triathlon Series (WTS). Okay, before you yawn and turn away, bear with me here. There are a few unique features to this sport which makes it particularly awesome viewing. Firstly, they look like normal people. Well, I say ‘normal’, what I mean is they almost appear to be the sort of sporty person you might see winning a local parkrun, not like Ben Johnson on drugs and such like. Many of the world leading triathletes are in their 30’s and are mums and dads themselves. However, don’t let that fool you. They are finely tuned machines capable of astonishing physical feats, far beyond that of any of us mere mortals.

68 | OCTOBER 2019

BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

Then there is the push for the finish line. They look properly wrecked at the end. I’m not talking, a bit out of breath and sweaty. I mean like laid out in a heap one meter over the line, throwing up and crying. This is good to see! Committed and inspiring. Proper racing. Just like me after a ‘steady’ training run! And then there’s the comradery. They all seem to be good mates. Good mates that desperately want to beat each other every week. They celebrate each other’s successes and share the pain of each other’s failures. They do all this with spirit and heart. Clearly they all love what they do. Last but not least there’s the shear strength and determination of these

people. A bike crash in a swim suit at 30mph? Not an issue. Get up, pop the chain back on, remove the spoke from your leg, spit out any loose teeth, and off your go! I aspire to be as strong, in mind and body, as them. It about commitment, hard graft and sacrifices. Aside from those chasing a podium spot I love the fact even those vying it out for 30th place, say, are at clearly at their absolute limit. They give each race everything like their life depends on it. One day, probably not too far from now, my running legs will give up and I’ll have to start exploring cycling and swimming as viable alternatives. All I can hope is that, when my time comes, I can dig half as deep as these supreme athletes.

A Local Ecumenical Partnership between the Church Of England, United Reformed Church and Baptists Together

WE ARE YOUR LOCAL CHURCH BASED IN SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE

TREATS – NO TRICKS! On All Hallows Eve, Thursday 31 October, we will have a Light Station outside the Church and Community Centre between 530 and 730, giving away free hot chocolate, hot dogs, sweets – and other goodies. If you are out and about in the evening, come and visit us for a wonderful welcome. Halloween has its roots in both Christianity and pagan traditions. In 835, the Pope moved the celebration for all the all saints to November 1. The night before became known as All Hallow’s Eve or holy evening, with people remembering loved ones who have died.. Eventually the name was shortened to the current Halloween. In recent years, Halloween has turned into a huge commercial event – the biggest after Christmas and Easter. As Christians, we believe that the message of Jesus is that good has

conquered evil and that He is the Light of the World. He told his followers – You are the light of the world – Matthew 5:14. We’ve come out of the darkness and into the light.

During the season 78 Saturday, 32 Sunday and more than 43 junior cricket matches have been played. A further 6 T 20 were played as the club reached the final of the Suffolk T20 competition losing to Sudbury

in the final, a number of players have made significant progress,16 year old twins Elliott and Finlay Bonas recently made their 1st team debuts which highlights the importance of developing young players. Many boys and girls have enjoyed cricket thanks to John Williams assisted by other coaches. `All Stars Cricket` has provided a fun background for boys and girls to learn about the game on Sunday mornings. Ladies cricket has taken place with two friendly matches. The success of the club has not only been on the field as the next project is to build a purpose designed scorebox that will enable scorers to have a superb view of the two pitches.

ALBUMS SHOW: BILLY JOEL SONGBOOK (Music)

Two classic Billy Joel albums performed in their entirety… in one sensational show. There’s just no stopping the incredible success of the critically acclaimed Billy Joel Songbook led by the phenomenal Elio Pace and his amazing band.

If that wasn’t thrilling enough for Billy Joel fans, Elio and his band are delighted to be bringing back their very special guest, direct from the USA… legendary lead guitarist, David Brown. David played lead guitar in Billy Joel’s band from 1978 until 1991 and also went on to record and tour with many music icons including Paul McCartney and Simon and Garfunkel.
