CHAPMAN PINCHER

hapman Pincher calmly reflects on an episode which saw him ‘in the frame’, albeit briefly for a serious crime. Whilst CP was away on holiday the inivestigating officers took a rather questionable approach to furthering their enquiries. See Page 3.

BRASSERIE GERARD PUTS ST JOHN’S ON THE MENU

T

he final of the first Sixth Form French Cookery Competition at St John’s in Marlborough, instigated by restaurant Brasserie Gerard, took place on Monday 7th February at St John’s. Overall winner Claudi Sawbridge, 17, took home the main prize of a meal for four in the restaurant, an engraved professional chef’s knife and a week’s work experience in the kitchens of the restaurant with her outstanding Chocolate and Orange Flan. Fourteen students took part in the competition and six prizes were awarded; a winner and runner-up for the starters, main courses and desserts, each receiving vouchers for meals in the restaurant. The winning recipes will now become the first “St John’s Specials” served in the Marlborough High Street restaurant, and the Brasserie will make a donation to St John’s for every special ordered, continuing the restaurant’s commitment to support St John’s. The judges tasted all fourteen dishes and judged on a range of criteria including appearance, texture, taste, authenticity of ingredients, cost, presentation, methodology and appropriateness for preparing and serving in a restaurant. The “fifth judge” was the public vote. Guests, who included staff, families of the competitors, and other visitors voted for their favourite dishes and their selections were included in the final scoring. Brasserie Gerard and St John’s now plan make the competition an annual event. -K. Hunter

CHAPMAN PINCHER

BY

EXCITING LIFE

SERIAL KILLER?

I

never imagined that I would be suspected by Scotland Yard of being a mass-murderer but that was the case for a few days in the spring of 1965. A team of detectives had been baffled for months by five Jackthe Ripper style murders of London prostitutes whose naked bodies had been dumped mainly in the area of Shepherd’s Bush after being subjected to a peculiar sexual assault. After the discovery of a sixth, Scotland Yard appealed to the public because they had a new clue – the victim had been seen being picked up near one of the gates of Hyde Park by somebody in a dark blue car. They quickly received a brief, anonymous telephone message, from a call-box, giving the number of the car which proved to be a Jaguar owned by the Daily Express, for which I worked. The outstanding crime reporter of the Daily Express, the late Percy Hoskins, spent most of his time at Scotland Yard so the detectives had no difficulty in establishing that the car was allotted to me for my work and that I was the likely driver. Their immediate problem was how to get hold of it for forensic examination. I was not available because my wife and I were on holiday, salmonfishing in Ireland, having left the car in the garage at our country home in Surrey. My schoolgirl daughter, Pat, however, was at home with the live-in couple and, with Hoskins’ help on the telephone, the detectives convinced her that they were from the newspaper which needed to take the car away because it might have a dangerous problem with its brakes. The car was duly examined and, as soon as the sleuths opened the boot, they felt that they had their serial killer for they saw exactly what they were looking for - the dark blue, plastic lining of the boot

GS

was heavily stained with large patches of recent blood! While forensic scientists went to work in the laboratory, detectives powdered the car in search of the victim’s fingerprints. I have always regretted being unable to see the investigators’ faces – first when they saw the stains and, second, when tests quickly showed that the blood was not human. The bloodstains were those of several hares which I had recently brought back from a big farmers’ hare-shoot in Essex, which I attended for many years. The car had been returned by the time I reached home and when my daughter told me about the brakes problem, I dismissed the incident. A little later, Hoskins told me the truth, with much mirth, and when I looked closely at the dashboard in front of the driver’s seat and inside the glove-box I could see lots of white fingerprint powder. Shortly afterwards, the whole Scotland Yard team, which was led by the very able, and affable, John du Rose, took me out to a conciliatory dinner when they seemed to be satisfied that the murderer had been a policeman who had since committed suicide. Regarding the anonymous phone-call, they seemed satisfied that it had been made by someone in my private life with a personal grudge. I was fortunate that none of my Fleet Street rivals got wind of the story in its early stages.

ST JOHN’S STUDENTS MAKE LINKS IN PRAGUE

I

n January four students and two teachers from St John’s in Marlborough visited Prague as part of the Comenius project. This project, named after Jan Amos Comenius (1592-1670), the “father of modern education”, enables EU schools to develop partnerships, working together on cross-curricular projects funded by the European Commission. St John’s students represented the UK element of the partnership and students from other partner schools in Belgium, Hungary and Germany spent an enjoyable few days making new friends and learning about each others cultures. St John’s teachers Matt Lennon and Kerry Saunders accompanied Year 8 students Isobel Morshead (12), Olivia Snell (12), Tom Ellis (13) and George Lamb (12), flying from Stansted Airport to Prague on Wednesday, 12 January 2011, returning on Sunday afternoon. From there they were taken to Londynsky School where students were introduced to their host families. Students stayed with their host families for the duration of their 5-day stay. For most, friendships had already been forged prior to the trip, between students and hosts via email and Facebook. The first day of the visit began with an all-school assembly, where all the visitors from the schools within our Comenius partnership (UK, Belgium, Hungary, Germany) were present. Following this, students were treated to a busy itinerary including time in school, a sightseeing tour of Prague, a visit to the biggest water park in the Czech Republic, a historical tramway tour and a rock concert! In the weeks preceding the trip, the four Year 8 students had been preparing presentations on solutions to various environmental issues raised by each of the schools within the partnership. These included chewing gum at school, contaminated vegetables sold by the roadside, dirty parks and mess at school. Their ideas were then presented back by the students to all the other European teams. - K. Hunter

ROW OVER HUNGERFORD COMMUNITY CENTRE THREATENED CLOSURE

ungerford Town Councillors on Monday were told before their meeting of notices to close Hungerford Community Centre on March 31. The surprise information was borne by former Hungerford town councillor Roger Thompson and others.Mr Thompson said Hungerford Council should have been consulted and an attempt made for public consultation. The closure notices came from West Berkshire Council. District Councillor David Holtby said West Berkshire Council was facing a dire situation with the coalition government in a financial juggling act to balance the books. “The country is broke”, he said. Crs Holtby and Hewer said they would act to clarify the situation. An urgent report will be prepared for the council”s recreation and amenities committee. The centre is adjacent to John O’Gaunt Community College and is said to attract many young people.
