AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR MARLBOROUGH TOWN HALL OF THE FUTURE

A

mbitious preliminary plans to renovate Marlborough Town Hall for the future were put to the last Marlborough Town Council meeting. The plans were tabled by Cr Guy Loosmore who said that if adopted the hall would be a jewel in the crown of Marlborough and a major asset over the next century. He said it was envisaged to bring offices back into the hall, re-open the loos, incorporate a museum and to open the hall to public and

exhibition use seven days a week. The people would be properly consulted to see if they wanted it. Cost could be in the £1million bracket with a fixed loan over 20 years. He did not envisage that it would affect the precept. Cr Stewart Dobson said he could not see how it would not affect the precept. He also was concerned at viability with other competing venues in the town.

RECOLLECTIONS OF AN

EXCITING LIFE

CHAPMAN PINCHER

BY

DREAMS

T

he statistical news that more and more of us are destined to live to 100 sounds impressive but it really means only 66 active years as our bodies and brains are so made that we all need to spend a third of our allotted span in sleep. I suppose that dreaming could count as experience, weird, as it usually is, and, as someone who dreams vividly in colour and have always had the facility to remember my reveries in detail, I became entranced enough by the subject to study all the relevant research and publish a book about it in 1954. My interest had been fired by a prime discovery which was amazing considering that it had, almost certainly, been happening to all of us throughout human history. While recording the electrical brain activity of sleeping people in his laboratory in Chicago, Professor Nathaniel Kleitman noticed that, at certain stages of the night, the eyes oscillate rapidly under the closed lids. Further, whenever sleepers were awakened during that rapid eye movement (called ‘rem sleep’) they could always remember that they had been dreaming but not if they were roused at other times when deeply asleep. This led to the discoveries that everybody dreams, whether they can remember doing so or not, and that dreaming is an essential part of sleep’s recuperative processes. Sleep deprivation, which also means dream deprivation, can be so damaging so quickly that it is used as a form of torture by interrogators trying to abstract confessions. With most people, there are two main periods of rem dreaming, the first about three hours after falling asleep and the second a couple of hours later. Each lasts about twenty minutes and the brain can dream lightly at other times such as when falling asleep or awakening. Surgeons whom patients have permitted to probe their exposed brains have located the temporal lobes – two patches of grey cells located just above the ears - as the areas responsible for dreams. Electrical stimulation of those areas can induce dreaming.

H E R S I S

D&R

Sadly, the vogue for sleep research soon petered out, which is a pity as there is so much more to be discovered, especially about dreaming. If only I could visualize in conscious imagination as vividly as I can dream how much better would I be fitted for writing? As a writer, it would be of enormous benefit to me if my imagination could function during consciousness with the clarity and virtuosity it displays when dreaming! While I have no architectural skills, my dreams often feature splendid buildings which I have never seen in real life and could not conjure up when conscious. It is the same with landscapes. Sometimes I am fishing rivers which I have never seen yet they are there in all colourful details – the banks, the trees, the rocks, the currents. It is the same with my game-shooting dreams. The whole landscape is invariably fictitious. So, too, are the other people in it. My sleeping brain invents them, too, for I rarely dream about anyone I know. I have tried to invent people and places visually while awake but with little success whereas in dreams they seem as real as in conscious reality. Surely, to understand exactly how the brain does this might increase our inventive capacity on which the whole progress of civilisation has depended. I have seen little credible evidence that dreams are prophetic – a possibility which has spawned soothsayers down the ages - but I experienced one startling exception which caused a political crisis for the reigning Prime Minister, as I will reveal next week.

MARLBOROUGH HOLDS ITS PRECEPT

Marlborough Town Council has held its precept at £389,000. Cr Stewart Dobson commented at the last council meeting that Hungerford with 6000 people had a precept less than half that of Marlborough with 8000 people. Marlborough Mayor Cr Andy Ross said the Malborough precept compared favourably with other Wiltshire towns.

M

y personal efforts in the community might never be equalled as people do not remain in one place today. If I give the example of my two sons both born in Hungerford, one at Canalside and the second in The Croft; now one lives in Northants and the second in Cornwall; the four grandchildren live in Lancashire, Yorkshire and two in London. Our family research shows that before this generation we had been in this immediate area as a family for the previous 200 years and now we are as a family scattered all over England. I started my devotion to Hungerford at a very young age. I represented Hungerford schools’ cricket in 1939, joined the criket club on its reforming in 1948, the fire brigade in 1951 and the town council in 1955 and so on. It has been my great pleasure to continue with so many other town activities. One thing escapes; I have never taken up bowls; lots of persuasion so I wonder why? I have been privileged to live in Hungerford and I have so much enjoyed my life; no regrets, perhaps only that I never did score a 100 for the cricket club.

70TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY FOR HUNGERFORD COUPLE

I

n the darkest days of the Second World War there was light on the London horizon. For at St Mary’s Church, Osterley, a couple were being married who would continue through life to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. So, while His Majesty’s latest and largest battleship King George V bore Lord Halifax toward America at full steam ahead on vital war business, Stella (Welman) and Anthony George Milward Greenland pictured at RIGHT were wed on January 18th, 1941. Both served their country admirably, Tony between 1939 and 1946 in The Princess Louise Kensington Regiment and Stella in The Women’s Volunteer Service and later in the WI. Tony served in England, France, Africa and India. He landed at Normandy four days after D-Day and was wounded in action. The Greenlands have two children, Sandra and Geoff, four grandsons and two great-grandsons. Tony spent 22 years as a magistrate including 12 years as Chairman of the Bench at Swindon. He and Stella lived at Wanborough before moving to Hungerford 11 years ago. Tony joined Probus in Hungerford and has served a productive term as chairman.
