to the September W elcome edition of TICKHILL TODAY. TODAY

Back to school time already! How the year is flying by. For me, with 3 children (14, 13 & 9) the year is very much timetabled by school holidays. The next one is 8 weeks away! I have been lucky enough to spend 2 great weeks in Cornwall this summer, enjoying the sunshine, relaxing on the beach, walking the cliff paths, cycling the Camel Trail and this year I have added a new activity; body boarding in the surf - I am even the proud owner of my own wet suit, although I did have to use one of my children’s cast off boards, perhaps I will have my own next year! I hope that you enjoy this months magazine, please do get in touch if there is something that you would like to see in future editions. The next edition will be distributed to you from 28th September. Please ensure that anything that you would like to be included is with me by Friday 14th September.

Best Wishes, Paula

Tickhill St Mary’s C of E Primary and Nursery School Olympic Finish to the end of the Summer Term 2012

The Olympics and sporting activities took over the last few weeks of term in July. The inclement weather forced our Olympic Opening Ceremony indoors, but our spirits were anything, but dampened. Each class wrote their own Olympic Oath and carried different country’s flags, having studied their country in all aspects from costume to cuisine. Parents had the opportunity to join the children for themed dinners throughout our Olympic week. This was a great success with India being a clear favourite! The weather interfered with our Olympic Sports Day, but only in that the activities were moved to the playground off the sodden grass, and modified accordingly. Lumley House (reds) were the clear winners on the day, and the sun shone on the children and their many supporters. Years 3 and 4 visited local schools to compete in a dance workshop and basketball tournament respectively. The whole of Key Stage 1 had a very enjoyable day at Cannon Hall Farm, near Barnsley, and the whole hectic few weeks ended with the end of term discos, and a very emotional End of Year Service at St.Mary’s Church. Year 6 took centre stage and the rest of the school wished them well, as they move on to their respective secondary schools. We’re all now having a much needed rest, in readiness for the start of the next academic year, which will start when school reopens at 8.50a.m. on Tuesday 4 th September.

ayflower Animal Sanctuary, Narrow Lane, Bawtry Doncaster

To raise funds we enjoyed a pie and pea supper evening at Ye Olde Bell, Barnby Moor on the 7th July. What a fantastically entertaining evening this turned out to be. The Bruvvers Blue were brilliant. The food as usual was delicious and everyone had a terrific evening dancing the night away. Many people donated raffle and auction prizes to help raise even more funds. Thank you to everyone. They included Jamps Cantonise Resturant Tickhill, JG Photography Harworth, Ye Olde Belle The Vulcan Team at Robin Hood Airport, Mulberries Spa Retford, Yorkshire Wild Life Park Bondhay Golf Club, Doncaster Super Bowl this was a small selection of people that supported us for anyone that I have not mentioned a BIG THANK YOU Thank you also to Il Bello Venue Decorations from Harworth. At the drop of a hat they provided beautiful balloons for our table decorations, which were amazing. Huge thanks also go to Bruvvers Blue for making the night go with such a bang. They also auctioned themselves to raise another £300. The final total was around £1700 raised so thank you for everyone that contributed. If you had a great time we will be arranging something similar on the 17th November. So bring your party to our party and have a night to remember.

Pet of the Month

Hello my name is Pixie and I came into care with my little sister when we were just a few weeks old that is nearly a year ago. We were found abandoned in a field and would have died if some nice people hadn't found us. My sister went to her new home almost immediately, she was a different colour to me, as you can see I am all black but very cute and love to be cuddled. I don't know who named me Pixie but I hoped it would make me stand out from the rest of the residents. But its not to be I am still in my pen looking out into the big wide world trying to catch visitors attention ( I have heard that black cats don't get re homed because of their colour ) O K ! so I maybe black but I still have feelings and it makes me sad watching the pretty coloured cats go to their new homes and I am still here. Would someone please come and give me a home, I will be very good and be a perfect companion. We have some very loving cats and dogs, if you think you can give any of our residents a home, or if you would like to donate just £1 per month to our charity please call the Sanctuary on 01302 711330. It costs us £500 per day to stay open, all donations are down this year and we are desperate for further funds so your help is much needed 16| Tickhill Today

Rossington Hall treat for St Leger race-goers! Gary and Michelle Gee, owners of Doncaster’s newest luxury wedding, special occasion and fine dining venue Rossington Hall, are delighted to be sponsoring Doncaster Racecourse’s new Premier On The Lawn facility at this year’s Ladbrokes St. Leger Festival. Premier On The Lawn is a newly created admission badge, taking the best of the existing Premier Suite and locating it in a duplex marquee on the champagne lawn. Gary and Michelle have long had a passion for horse racing and have been members of Doncaster Racecourse for many years. They are equally passionate about period buildings and see the partnership with Doncaster Racecourse as a wonderful opportunity to merge their fond interest in both to create a very special experience for St Leger race-goers in Doncaster. Gary and Michelle have owned Rossington Hall, a Victorian Grade II listed building, for just over a year, and, having spent over £3.5million on the first phase of the renovations so far, have restored much of the beautiful Victorian stately home (including the main state rooms) and grounds back to their former glory, and have created an elegant chandeliered ballroom. Rossington Hall is already becoming known as one of the region’s most prestigious wedding and celebration venues, as well as wowing diners with a fine dining experience fit for those with the most discerning palate. To mark the occasion, during Thursday 13th – Saturday 15th September of the St Leger Festival , race-goers will be able to delight in an added luxury by enjoying a tantalising selection of dining options, both before and after the racing, in the beautiful state rooms at Rossington Hall. At 10.00am each day, an intimate and exclusive champagne and lobster brunch will be served, where guests can take advantage of tips for the day’s racing from a well-known tipster. The cost is £59 per person and transport to the race course in plenty of time to enjoy action will also be included. For those who prefer to finish the day off with something special, a bespoke 7 course taster menu, created by our 3 AA Rosette chef, John Lyons, will be served from 6.30pm at a cost of £60 per person. Places will be limited on each dining occasion, so please book early. For further information about Rossington Hall’s special race week celebrations, please contact Kirsty or Patricia on 01302 866822 or email

Arts Review and What’s Going On September 2012 Hilary Cartmel We’ve enjoyed a range of music festivals this summer. The kids (I use the term loosely) have been off to several including the Sheffield free festival ‘Tramlines’ 20 to 22 July which had music in every venue possible in the City, now in its third year and with a huge range on offer. Global Gathering where the dance music went on until 4 in the morning ( dance = not waltz or foxtrot) and Leeds Fest at Braham Park - always a fixture for our ‘kids’ will have come and gone by the time Today goes to print. Doncaster had its own free festival called MAP (Music and People) on 4th August. The local pubs in Harworth (Blacksmiths) and Scaftworth (King Willliam) have done one day festivals. We – the oldies in the family went off for a weekend of Folk at Cambridge at the end of July. I did think we would fit in invisibly amongst the grey bearded sandal wearers – but this was not so. The age range was total and there were some brilliant young performers busking around the site and playing on the smaller and intimate stages. One, called the Front Room, was barely bigger than a family sized tent and complete with sofas and seating for about ten within its canvas walls, but with plenty of space on the grass outside. It’s a broad church, folk music, there was none of the stereotype finger-in-the-ear (and what’s wrong with several voices performing in tight harmony?) All performers wear earpieces and have wires coming out the backs of their heads now. We saw from one extreme to the other: virtuoso performances of electrified Irish and Scottish developments of slip-jigs and reels with almost 20 musicians on stage including electrified Northumbrian Pipes and bodhran to Billy Bragg celebrating the life and work of Woody Guthrie who believed that being able to play more than 2 chords on the guitar was showing off. A great atmosphere and good beer all added to the weekend and in Cambridge we were blessed with sunshine. Very little beats live music or live performance. There will be plenty of live and local performances in the neighbourhood over the next few months, brought to you by TMS, The Rock, Village Ventures, Letwell Gigs and many more besides. The Rock – every Friday evening at the Wesley centre in Maltby Kicks off the Autumn season on 7th September with Vin Garbutt. Tickhill Music Society concerts in St Mary’s school hall begin their Autumn season on 21 September with Erato Piano Trio playing Haydn, Beethoven and Faure.

Letwell Gigs at Letwell Village Hall have Anna Coogan and Daniele Fiaschi on Saturday 22 September email: Village Ventures the rural touring program brought to you by Notts County Council with funding from Arts Council England (which means subsidised ticket prices) begins the 2012/13 season locally at Bircotes Town Hall with the ever popular and ever brilliant Northumberland Theatre Company. Their version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream – bringing the Shakespeare Season to our doorstep. Friday 28 September. tickets 01302 752515 / 752642 36| Tickhill Today

The second generation of solar power is here By Alison Courtnell, managing director of Solar ENLES ( Have you ever heard the expression "about as useful as a chocolate teapot", or "about as useful as a concrete parachute"? Another of these is "about as useful as a solar-powered torch". But the premise on which this third expression is based – that something solar-powered only works if the sun is out – doesn’t actually ring true. As of today, it is possible to run your home or business on solar even after the sun has set. You just need SunBat, a system that stores any solar power that you don’t use right away. SunBat integrates neatly into any PV system, new or retrofit, and is available for both single- and threephase connections. There are several benefits for those who install this brand new technology:  It makes you even more independent from the National Grid, reducing your bills substantially  You can use eco-friendly electricity at the times of day when you need it the most – for most people, this is in the morning and evening when they are at home.  Your electricity stays on during a power cut – for hours, typically.  You add to the value of your property. The introduction of SunBat is a huge step forward for solar power in the UK. The first generation of solar customers in this country sought to take advantage of the Government’s feed-in tariffs, but the second generation is less dependent on them. The cost savings made possible by SunBat, together with the significant drop in the cost of solar PV and the steady rise in the cost of grid electricity, has made solar energy an attractive proposition in its own right. Solar ENLES will launch SunBat at the Solar Power UK event at the Birmingham NEC 2-4 October.

Charity calls for supporters to sleep rough for one night Local charity SAFE@LAST is calling for participants to take part in The BIG Sleepout and sleep rough for one night so young runaways don’t have to. The BIG Sleepout, SAFE@LAST’s signature event, is returning for the 5 th year and to all four boroughs of South Yorkshire to raise funds and awareness of the charity’s work across the county. Since the first BIG Sleepout in 2007, over 1,000 people have taken part and slept rough for one night, raising over £70,000 in the last five years. The event helps to give participants an insight into what it could be like for the many thousands of young runaways who find themselves sleeping rough. Those taking part have to forgo all comforts for the night as they are only allowed basic items to keep warm such as a sleeping bag and cardboard box. In order to continue their work and deliver vital services, SAFE@LAST has to fundraise and every penny raised through the BIG Sleepout will make a huge difference. This year the charity hopes to have over 500 participants sleeping rough across the four venues. Fundraising Officer Barbara Raszyk commented “The BIG Sleepout provides a chance for us to highlight the struggles young runaways face and for people to have a small taste of what sleeping rough on the streets might be like. When children sleep rough they do it because they feel they have no other choice. They do it because they judge their other options as worse than a cold, lonely, dirty night on the streets. The money raised at these events will help us to continue to ensure that young people across South Yorkshire know they have a safer choice.” This year’s events are Friday 28thth September at Lakeside Village Doncaster, Friday 5th October at The Core Barnsley, Friday 12 October at Don Valley Stadium Sheffield and Friday 19th at Parkgate Shopping Rotherham. For more information about The BIG Sleepout and SAFE@LAST and to register for the event visit:

We wish to record the life of a beloved wife and mother, who fought bravely to the end to conquer cancer, but eventually passed away peacefully at St. John's Hospice on the 12th. June 2012. We also wish to thank the medical services who tried so hard to alleviate her ailment, carers, district nurses, surgery, hospital and hospice, who never gave up. A sum of £450 was collected and has been sent to her chosen charities, at the hospital and hospice, and we thank all those who gave so generously. Rest in peace my darling, Brian Jones, Peter Jones & Jenny Hosker.

Tickhill and Bawtry Probus Club It’s happened again! Your scribe is meant to put in a report on the club’s activities every three months which means that this report should have been in the July issue. However, just as last year a combination of my holidays, magazine closing dates and possibly a little ARF* means that this contribution will not appear until September. Never mind, hopefully many Probus members and potential Probus members have been on holiday too and my lapse will pass unnoticed. All our meetings for the remainder of this year are listed below and if you think you might be interested in joining us come along to a meeting as a guest. Normally (i.e. except for the two meetings this September!) we meet at the Millstone on the 2 nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 10.00 for 10.30 am. Meetings usually finish by 12.00 Noon after which many members can be found in the bar downstairs. It beats gardening or decorating any day! The meetings programme for the rest of the year is: 13th September. Visit to Northern Racing College (list already full) 27th September. Ladies lunch at Doncaster Golf Club (members and wives/partners only). 11th October. “Legacy of Emperors”. Talk by Michael Walpole. 25th October. “So this is Tokyo”. Talk by Jennie Storr 8th November. “Remembrance” Members’ contributions. nd 22 November. Annual Lunch (members only) 13th December. TBA (but come along anyway, bound to be good just before Christmas!} We look forward to seeing old friends and new. *ARF. Age Related Forgetfulness. Common in people over 70 but can occur earlier or later. Not to be confused with Alzheimer’s Disease or other nasties!

ickhill and District Local History Society

September again and a new season of activities. But first, back to 21 st July when we held our first ever Local History Fair in the Library which was very well attended. In addition to material from our own archives, Charles Kelham and Helen Wallder brought items about Tickhill from the DMBC Archives and the Local Studies Library. We also showed long forgotten cine films of Tickhill in 1929 and 1953 – these proved very popular. Our thanks to Charles and Helen, also to Steve Payne who arranged the film display and to Lesley Nicholson who devised and managed the whole event. Now, back to the future – well to September 20th anyway. This is when our 2012/13 Season of meetings starts with a (hopefully) brief AGM followed by Martyn Johnson talking about “The Making of Black Diamonds”. Those who have read the book “Black Diamonds, The Rise and Fall of an English Dynasty” by Catherine Bailey will know that it is the 20 th Century story of one of England’s once richest families, the Fitzwilliam’s of Wentworth, South Yorkshire. Catherine Bailey comes from Southern England and when she arrived in Wentworth to do research for the book she found the local dialect difficult and information sometimes hard to come by. Fortunately, Martyn Johnson, then the village policeman took her under his wing and helped her get what she needed for this superb book. His talk about this should be absolutely fascinating. As usual the meeting will be in the Methodist Schoolrom starting at 7.30 pm and visitors will be welcome. And finally. Beyond September 20th we have a cracking programme of meetings on the third Thursday of each month except December when we will be having our usual Christmas Social at the Millstone. Membership of the Society costs only £6 per person (free for juniors in full time education).You can join or renew your membership in the Library to avoid queuing at meetings. We look forward to seeing friends old and new.

Weather Wise. Foreigners (of which there are far too many in my view) tend to view the UK in a negative manner. Napoleon is supposed to have dismissed the British as ‘a nation of shopkeepers’ and I suppose he had a point. The English in particular have been labelled ‘perfidious Albion’ which isn’t very nice. We are also seen as a dull, dour and dangerous lot epitomised by that bulldog image. Despite all these allegedly unsavoury characteristics, there is one subject which we really know something about: weather. Those in sunny climes who see blue skies and experience high temperatures have a limited view of weather since it is pretty much always the same. Similarly in northern countries where half the year sees no daylight and snow covers everything the people tend to be gloomy to match, write miserable novels and make violent crime films. Of course, as a reasonable lot, we British only tolerate moderate weather. We have nothing to do with hurricanes, cyclones and tornadoes. There is the odd paltry mini-tornado I suppose, but not one of those unruly things that rips off roofs and tumbles buses into the river. Things here are done in moderation as befits our noble character. We have frost and fog and showers and thunderstorms with hail, strong sun and the odd brisk breeze - often all of these on the same day. But nothing too violent. We restrict snowfall to just a few inches, enough to bring the nation’s traffic to a halt so that people can have a day or two off work. Lately there have been a few sad lapses when there have been some floods in places but these are quickly followed by a drought to even things up. With us it is all about balance. This means that everybody knows about weather. We know about highs and lows, cold fronts, jet streams, isobars and all that technical stuff. We talk a lot about the weather, even more than we complain about the Government, the local council, the post office and the cost of vegetables. People passing in the street will say ‘Nice day, for a change’. The postman, drenched to the skin, will comment ‘It’s a bit damp’. Those continentals don’t know what they are missing. They never experience the jolly variety of our April showers (so called because they occur in May). They will not know the gloomy mystery of a haar on the East Coast; the bracing easterly wind tearing at the wind-break on the beach, the steady soothing drizzle pattering onto the umbrella and November fog. Things change with the seasons. In Winter, when the ground is frozen hard and hoar frost spangles the grass, when the crisp air is diamond clear, the bark of a dog two miles away comes to the tingling ears as sharp and true. In Spring, the cold world begins to burst with youth and promise. The recent fleeting shower adds sparkle to the hedges, the blackthorn blossom is overtaken by the sweet scented hawthorn, aubrietia spills over old stone walls and creamy cow parsley fringes the roadside. In high Summer thoughts turn to the sunhat and deckchair or hammock and barbecues; we dreamily watch the fluffy white clouds lazily drifting against a bright blue sky and all Nature murmurs with a drowsy hum. And Autumn when the rattle of the combine harvester has faded and the lumpy hay bales lie lazily in the fields, the world takes on a golden sheen. Fruits have ripened in the sun and apple trees do lean down low. Unless there has been a damp spell, of course. Yes! over here we really do know about proper weather. Philip Mottram

Well, the weather defeated us and so did our resolve. We thought we could re-organise the Tickhill Gala in September but, after a long, hard meeting, sadly, the decision was taken not to go ahead with it. We would like to thank all those people who worked unceasingly throughout the year to make the gala a success and hope that we can count on their support for 2013. I would like to thank everyone who has pledged their support for the future and I will be contacting them in early September to put together a plan of campaign. Results of the raffle were: First prize - £50 – Mrs G Neale; Second prize - £25 – Miss S Beevers; third prize – £10 – Miss G Paige. These prizes can be collected on presentation of the winning tickets any evening after 7.00pm by contacting the number given below. The best Dressed Window Competition was won by: First prize - The Little Sweet Shop Second prize – Castlegate DIY th

Third prize – Deli 21

Tickhill Town Council

At the Council meeting 24th July 2012, the Councillors accepted D.M.B.C.’s Code of Conduct and all forms relating to the Doncaster’s Register of Members’ Disclosable Pecuniary interests were returned to the Clerk completed. These were in consequence passed to the Monitoring Officer. The Council’s Standing Orders have been amended to reflect the change. I am proud to announce that Tickhill Town has been invited to become a Patron of the Victoria Cross Trust. It was a great honour for the Council to accept the invitation on behalf of Tickhill. Current Patrons are an MP for Chester, a D Day Veteran Paratrooper, a former Commanding Officer of Queens Own Rifles of Canada, a former 3 Para and Falklands Veteran and an MP for Portsmouth. There is no financial commitment and it should be an educational asset to Tickhill. D.M.B.C. has asked for tenders for a full survey of the Lime Trees on Bawtry Road. This will be carried out in August and the survey should be ready for public viewing in late September. Meanwhile, general maintenance to the trees will be carried out during the next few weeks with the removal of basal growth and stumps from previously felled trees. There are now 62 trees remaining of the 80. It is planned that the Council will hold an open day or drop in session so the future plan can be discussed. During the last week of July Tickhill Council invited the Mayor of Doncaster, Mr P. Davis to attend a meeting to discuss various outstanding issues. The main area of discussion was centred on the parking issues we have. As a consequence of this meeting, it is hoped Tickhill will have a traffic warden to impose the few parking restrictions we have, so please be aware when returning back to the drop off and pick up school schedule in September that there could be a Traffic Warden about. There were also discussions with Mayor P. Davies on the Land for sale at the side of the A1M motorway and the sale of the Public toilets by D.M.B.C. What the outcome will be we do not know. It was good to see so many members of the public at our last Council meeting, and just to remind you all there is an open session from 7.00pm to 7.15pm when members of the public can air their views and pass comments. Please do come along. Normal methods of Contacts Beth 07926 810229 or Jamie 07926 808016 for bookings YOUR COUNCILLORS ARE: Mr Raymond (Ray) L Hill
