ST. JOHN’S SETS NEW RECORD OF OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT

S

t John’s School, Marlborough has set yet another record with 74% of the 256 GCSE students gaining 5 A*-C including English and Maths. The previous record of 67% was set last year. 256 students sat the equivalent of almost 3000 GCSEs and achieved outstanding results. An incredible 86% achieved 5 GCSE grades C and above, smashing the previous record of 73%. 43

students achieved at least 8 A or A* grades. Headteacher Dr Patrick Hazlewood said: “This year’s results are simply outstanding. The problems of the split site were often cited as reasons why we could not achieve our full potential. Now that we have our new school the results have literally surpassed all expectations and broken all records. continued on page 7...

RECOLLECTIONS OF AN

BY

EXCITING LIFE

A

CHAPMAN PINCHER

THE LORD HIGH ADMIRAL

s a Fleet Street defence correspondent, I often attended lectures by Forces chiefs at the Royal United Services Institution, in Whitehall, which has long been the leading forum for defence and security studies. Between 1968-73 my visits there were more frequent because the Director General then, Air Vice Marshal ‘Paddy’ Menaul, was a close friend who I had first met while we were both involved in atomic bomb tests in Australia. We had many reminiscing chats in his office, where there was a single oil painting which I much admired. It was a head and shoulders portrait of a truly great, but little appreciated, old gentleman called Lord Howard of Effingham who, as the wooden label on the oval, gilded frame stated, was the Lord High Admiral of England during the reign of Elizabeth the First. He was in charge of the Battle of the Armada in 1588 and was chiefly responsible for the victory for which Sir Francis Drake, who was his second in command, usually gets all the credit. He was at sea during the battle, had visited every ship before it to boost morale and had confidently forecast victory. Surviving letters show that he had also been astute enough to keep warning Elizabeth that while the Spaniards appeared to be negotiating peace they were assembling a massive invasion fleet which would have to be assaulted. The portrait, which showed a benevolent-looking, white-haired and white-bearded old chap in a white ruff and wearing a lace cap, was part of a huge collection of paintings of military or naval significance – some of them large battle scenes - which had been bequeathed to the RUSI over the years and was housed in a building close by. One day in 1973, when visiting Paddy, I found him in sombre mood. The Crown authorities had decided that they could no longer permit the RUSI to pay just a peppercorn rent for its Whitehall premises. So, to meet the increased demand, the RUSI had decided to sell off all its pictures to create a fund. Even the Lord High Admiral would be under the hammer.

After the sale, while sitting in Paddy’s office, I asked how much the great man had made. ‘Nothing!’ he replied. ‘He was painted on a thin, wooden panel and some idiot took the panel out of the frame, whereupon it split into two parts. So we had to withdraw it.” He opened a large, deep drawer in his desk and produced the two sections whereupon I asked what he intended to do with them. ‘Probably nothing’ he replied despondently. ‘It would cost too much to have it restored.’ I wasted no time, as I then owned a Tudor house and thought that, even with the split in it, the picture would grace one of my panelled walls. ‘I’ll give you £200 for the bits and the frame’ I offered. ‘OK. I’ll put it to my Council,’ he responded after brief thought. The Council duly accepted my offer. A few months later I was lunching in the boardroom of a company in London where the only person I had not previously met introduced himself as Arthur Lucas. ‘I am the chief restorer at the National Gallery,’ he added. I lost no time to tell him of the Lord High Admiral’s sad plight whereupon he volunteered ‘That is a painting of historic interest. Bring it to me at the National Gallery and we’ll restore it for nothing.’ The experts there did an excellent job and, happily, I still have the occasional privilege of giving the Lord High Admiral of England a naval salute to thank him for our national deliverance more than 400 years ago.

ungerford had a win and a draw from two games over the week-end and retained their unbeaten record and their position at the top of the league. On Saturday they failed to impress against Wimborne Town in a rather dull goalless first half, but came good after the interval to win comfortably. The game turned on a penalty early in the second half when Nicholas Ogbanufe was brought down and Mark Draycott opened the scoring from the penalty spot. Hungerford were never in danger thereafter and another goal from Draycott made it 2-0 after 84 minutes, before Jon Boardman headed in from a corner after 88 minutes to complete the scoring. At unbeaten Thatcham on Monday the home side scored through Gareth Thomas after only 2 minutes, the first league goal Hungerford had conceded this season, and the home side had much the better of the play during the first half as the visitors failed to produce anything like their best form, although they just held on. It was a different matter in the second half when it was Hungerford who dominated, Jamie Gosling equalizing after 60 minutes and some great saves by Paul Strudley in the Thatcham goal helped his side to hold on to a point.

HUNGERFORD COUNCILLOR RESIGNS

C

ouncillor Jan Giggins has tendered her resignation from Hungerford Town Council following unforeseen personal circumstances that have meant she can no longer afford the required time she considers necessary to fulfil this role. Mayor Martin Crane has expressed his sincere regret over her decision and says he recognises the new demands on her time. He commented, “Despite her short term of office, Jan has demonstrated enormous determination, enthusiasm and an analytical approach to current topics that will be sorely missed in Council”. He hopes that in time when her current issues are resolved, she might be in a position to return to continue her contribution to public life in Hungerford. In the meantime, a notice of a vacancy for the town council would be posted inviting interested parties to be considered to fill the gap, Cr Crane said.

find it quite amazing that in December 2010 we celebrated 50 years in Tantabrin; so much has changed. In that period our own family has grown up and left Hungerford. Our two sons were small boys when building began and now they are both into their mid-50s with grown-up children. The important thing to remember is that we built the house ourselves; it was a simple design perched on the bank in Parsonage Lane with a plot that measured 298 feet by 70 feet sold to us by Stephen Neate who was a good friend; he was also chairman of the parish council when I was first elected in 1955 and as Margaret was secretary to the national savings committee with Stephen as chairman there was a good friendly feel about the whole transaction. I will tell you the price of the plot only to give you an idea of land values 50 years ago. That very large building plot cost just £300! We commenced work; Margaret’s father Bill Cox and myself on a Saturday in July 1959. Note that it was a Saturday and my beloved cricket club was lost to me for 18 months and was never replaced with quite the original post-war enthusiasm. Friends and relatives rallied around in an amazing way. Dear old Ted Stephens (just celebrated his 98th birthday) and Clive Evans turned up to dig out foundations alone. Work proceeded slowly but there were advantages; Chilton factory was also being built only 200 yards away and I remember in particular one Saturday when we connected underground with water, gas and sewer. Highly skilled people popped down to supervise or even to lend a hand. Stan Savory helped fatherin-law and myself. What a worker he was and he too appeared from time to time to help us. I have kept a complete diary of everything that occurred; every working hour is recorded and each item of expenditure. I remember the first: a new pickaxe handle cost 6/-!

ST. JOHN’S SETS NEW RECORD OF OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT

... continued from Page 1 The hard work of our students, with outstanding teaching and support from all staff and parents, has created a really first class set of results of which we can all be very proud.” This year’s top student was Fiona Moore with a remarkable 11 A* grades, closely followed by Frances Hamblin and Elen Pigott who both achieved 10A*s and 1 A grade. Other top performers were Lucy Budd, Charlotte Farrow, Amy Gillespie, Anna James, Michael Loveday, Ella Rees, Andrew Slater and Charlotte Utton who all achieved at least 5 A* grades. The majority of this year’s successful students will now study the IB or A-levels in St. John’s Sixth Form. -KATE HUNTER

POLIO PLUS

H

ungerford Rotary Club President, David Wallis (right), and club members with their District Governor Niall Blair on his recent visit in his very distinctive car. Hungerford club has always strongly supported the Polio Plus initiative. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease which tends to strike children under 5 years old in countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Polio can cause paralysis and sometimes death and because there is no known cure the best protection is prevention. Historically, polio has been the world’s greatest cause of disability. In 1985 Rotary International initiated the Polio Plus programme to immunize all the world’s children against this dreadful disease. To date Rotary has contributed nearly $800 million and countless volunteer hours to the protection of more than 2 billion children in 122 countries. Rotary has been working in conjunction with the World Health Organisation who have made it their top priority. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has donated $365 million to Rotary in support of a final drive to eradicate this scourge disease and Rotary has responded by setting a target of raising a further $200 million worldwide by June 2012.

WILTON WINDMILL CELEBRATES 190 YEARS Wilton Windmill

celebrates 190 years at Heritage Open Day on Saturday 10 September. The windmill was Built in 1821 and it milled grain for about 100 years until falling into disrepair. In the late 1970s, it was restored to working order and now is the only authentic working windmill in the entire Wessex region. Flour milled entirely by wind power is on sale at local outlets and on site. The grain comes from wheat grown in fields surrounding the windmill. That’s local sustainable produce for you! As part of the popular national Heritage Open Day scheme, on Saturday 10 September the mill will be open for free guided tours between 1.30 – 4.30 pm.

LETTER TO EDITOR DEBATE ON MILITARY INTERVENTION Sir:

Pewsey Deanery, in conjunction with Marlborough Deanery, are staging a debate on the motion “Military intervention in the affairs of other nations is wrong” at St John’s School, Marlborough on Wednesday 14 September, 7-9pm. Our speakers include Lord Owen (former Foreign Secretary, etc). We wondered if you could possibly include mention of this in your What’s On column please? If you were willing to donate slightly more space that would be even better. With thanks and kind regards, Rosemary Cook. Pewsey Deanery Lay Chair

ungerford’s John O’Gaunt Community Technology College has received national recognition, headteacher, Neil Spurdell reports in the school’s magazine. Mr Spurdell said: “It is extremely important that the school is recognised within the community and has the support from Hungerford locals in particular, but recently, we received national recognition for the improvements that we have made at John O’Gaunt. On the strength of last year’s GCSE results, we can now proudly boast to be the most improved secondary school in the South East from 2009 - 2010 and, perhaps even more impressively, the most improved school covering an even greater region over the period 2007-2010. This is testament to the hard work of the students and staff we have within the school and having made such enormous strides, we are determined to maintain and build upon the levels we have reached”. 22.6.11

HUNGERFORD CLEAN-UP SUGGESTIONS Hungerford Town Council’s Recreation, Amenities and War Memorials committee will seek clean-up work at the entrances to Hungerford, St Saviour’s area, the skatepark, Triangle Field surrounds and Bridge Street war memorial.
