Marton Primary School

O

ur school was lucky enough to be selected for a national folk project and spent last term discovering the history and life of ancient Marton. As part of our learning we visited our local church St Margaret of Antioch. The children were very sad to hear that the church was struggling to pay their repair bills so we gladly set about organising an event to raise some much-needed funds. With the help of the ‘Full English Project’ we formed a community band and held a ‘Folk and Plum Bread’ night, raising an amazing £375.00. The picture shows Mrs Dianne Gibbs, Churchwarden, with members of the PCC Committee, receiving the cheque from Amy and Finlay. They were delighted to receive the cheque and thanked the school very much.

A New Home by Nina Ratcliffe

A

27-year-old wife and mum from Torksey Lock has had her first e-book published. The short story was inspired by the author’s bond with her horse who is a tremendous character and has had a tough past. It was sent to Austin Macauley publishers early last year for rating and feedback and to her surprise she received a publisher’s contract a few months later. Nina Ratcliffe (author) was born and raised in Caistor, a small town near Market Rasen and has been horse-riding

since she was small. When she left school, Nina started a college course in horse management and instructor training and whilst there, a horse called Dublin came into her care and the bond started. He had a reputation of being aggressive in the stable, hard to catch from the field and getting rid of his riders, giving him the nickname ‘Dublin the Dumper’! Eventually Nina bought Dublin in 2005 and he soon became soft and sweet natured. The e-book titled ’A New Home’ is now available on Amazon. This is the first book of a series and more may appear very soon.

100th Anniversary of WW1

A Volunteer’s View

E

arly last year the R.V.S. (previously W.R.V.S.) launched a community transport scheme covering Gainsborough and surrounding area. I jumped at the chance to be a volunteer driver. Previously I’ve driven for Age Concern Cardiff and The Vale of Glamorgan. Living in Torksey Lock I mainly cover Trentside, enjoying meeting friendly people with their interesting tales of past and present. Helping our local residents is immensely rewarding and satisfying. For information as a client or driver ring 01427 617269 10am to 3pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Happy travelling Peter Hatton Torksey Lock

ugust 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of WW1. This war has touched the lives of most of us. I remember my grandma telling me that having 12 sisters and one brother, how her mother collapsed on getting the dreaded telegram about her beloved and only son, who, barely a man, dies for his country. His picture in his military costume took pride of place on the wall of our family home but at my tender age of 6 or 7 this photo meant very little to me, now it is lost and gone forever and I wish with maturity now that I had kept it safe and not allowed it to be taken or thrown away, and that I had kept it safe from whatever its fate had been.

So if you could help us with anything on this topic, it could be stories, memorabilia that we could photograph, pictures or postcards, please phone us on 01427 718837 and we would be happy to collect and drop safely back off to you. Some of these photos, stories etc could be included in the book we are collating so please dig deep and help us so that the stories and pictures are shared and not lost forever.

The Trentside Links team have a plea for everybody with WWI photos of the area to send them to us so that we may scan them (this meaning that they can be held digitally and would degrade no more) so that we could have a WW1 edition for our July magazine.

Local Girls set for Marathon Fundraiser but at present I'm feeling pretty fit and comfortable on the runs so here’s hoping it continues! I'm literally just taking it one run at a time so that I don't get too worried about the long weekend runs that I have before me!

S

o I started running to get fit and initially I hated it - every minute of it - but you keep doing little bits and after a while it gets easier and you start to enjoy it a bit more. In April last year we both went to watch a very good friend of ours run the London Marathon and after we had congratulated her and walked back to our trains I just looked at my sister (who has always wanted to run a marathon) and said "Go on then, lets enter the ballot," and the rest went from there! We entered the ballot and I said I would only run it if my sister and her friend got a ballot place too - and lo and behold all three of us did! So training began. So far it’s going well - I'm enjoying the runs and have joined a club which has been a massive help. I'm not a natural runner – it’s taken a lot of hard work and dedication even to get to this point

6

This will be the hardest challenge of my life to date and if I can cross that finish line I can finish anything I put my mind too - I can't wait for that feeling! The main part for me though is knowing that we have raised money for two charities incredibly close to our hearts. These are Cotswold Care Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support. Twelve years ago, our dad died from a brain tumour and the work that Cotswold Care and Macmillan did was invaluable. They provide help not only for the individuals suffering with a terminal illness but also to their families and in so many different ways. They help you both during and afterwards and you feel like part of a family who really care about you all. Both charities

rely completely on donations and so this is why, running 26.2 miles around London, I've chosen to raise money for them. Whilst Cotswold Care Hospice may not benefit any of you directly, it is a small hospice that works tirelessly in Gloucestershire to help many families. Any small amount you can donate really does make a difference and for families coping with terminal illnesses this help cannot be more gratefully received. So here is to, I should imagine, around fourand-a-half hours of running! I moved to the area 18 months ago to do an MSc and fell in love with the place and haven't left! I live in Laughterton at the moment. The donations are being split 50/50 between Cotswold Care and Macmillan.

Snowdrop Walk Success at Knaith Hall gardens in this wonderful way.

W

e were delighted to welcome hundreds of visitors to the Knaith Hall Snowdrop Walk held on Sunday 23rd February. It was a mild but windy day and the rain held off. Visitors began to arrive shortly before 11am and were soon seen walking along the river bank towards the Chateau, or stepping through snowdrops and aconites in the woods and gardens. They arrived inside the Hall with glowing cheeks to warm themselves by the log fire and indulge in the wonderful array of homemade cakes all donated by generous supporters of the church, which was also open for visitors to discover. It would not be easy to name and thank all those who gave their time on the day to help, or who baked cakes beforehand, there would be no room left for this article – but our sincere thanks to all, we couldn’t have done it without you. And a special thank you to John and Rosie Burke for opening their house and

Torksey – 3rd Most Important Town in Lincolnshire!

W

ith its mint; 3 parish churches; abbey; monastery and potteries, why was Torksey so important after Lincoln? Because of its strategical position on the waterways. It had 3 charters from 3 different Kings of England and a population of over 1,000 at the time of the Doomesday Book. So we were introduced to Torksey by our visiting speaker Alex Whitehead. What followed was a journey of twists and turns of how Torksey coped with its success and its misfortunes from 873 to 1915, when it still had an elementary school of 50 pupils. What was the main course of Torksey's downfall? The silting up of the waterways, which lead to the development of

The proceeds raised amounted to a marvellous £1307, which includes entrance fees, refreshments and donations. You will be aware that the money raised is wholly for St Mary’s Church, and several people have wondered why we need funding for the church. St Mary’s is one church in a group of nine and all of us have to raise funds for the upkeep of the church. St Mary’s biggest annual expense is £3800 called the Parish Share which is paid to the Diocese of Lincoln and is our share towards the salary of our stipendiary priest plus other diocesan costs such as administration, training etc. Insurance is £700, and electricity around £500 annually. In addition, we have to pay for repairs, recently to the roof, and refurbishment, the interior has recently been re-decorated. Maintenance of the organ, the churchyard is done by

volunteers, as is much of the general maintenance and manning of the church on special occasions such as weddings, funerals and christenings. We generate some of this income from a small group of committed supporters through a Planning Giving Scheme who promise to donate an amount annually to the church, and the donations people give through collections but these amounts, although vital to us and very much appreciated, have to be supplemented by further fundraising to cover the costs involved in the upkeep of the church. Those of you who have been inside St Mary’s will know what a special place it is and the setting by Knaith Hall and the River Trent is quite unique, it is a living church, it offers services three Sundays each month and it brings people together as the Snowdrop Walk has clearly shown. A comment written in the visitors’ book in the church on Snowdrop Walk Sunday sums it up perfectly: “It’s a little piece of heaven in a mad world.” Gill Blow PCC Secretary St Mary’s Church, Knaith

Flooding Deja-vu

O

n 10th November 2000 the River Trent over topped it banks into Beckingham Marshes and there was flooding west of Gainsborough as far as the eye could see. King Canute tried to stop it in the same place nearly a 1000 years before. Reader Pete Ellis remembered his son, Sam, trying himself and recalled this picture from 2000. Looks like we may need someone else to try again this year!

Girton Sailing Club Buys Lake

Y

our local sailing club has just bought the lake and premises it occupies near Girton village. You may not be aware of the existence of the 90-acre lake but Girton Sailing Club has been there for 40 years. We're planning a public event to celebrate becoming owners of this lake and its beautiful surroundings, in May when (we hope) the weather will be better. You'll be very welcome to come and have a look, and members will be on hand to show you round, introduce you to the exhilarating sport of sailing, and explain how we intend to expand the club to provide other water sports and allied activities for everyone in the local community. We'll tell you more about that nearer the time and look forward to seeing you then, and in the meantime, if you or your family would like to learn to

sail a dinghy, the club will be running a course on Tuesday evenings starting on 23rd April. This course lasts 10 weeks and takes you from the beginning right through to being able to sail unaided. If you would like to know more or to book a place, please contact Trevor Mapleston by email at: trevormapleston@hotmail.co.uk or telephone 01522 684554. Also we run ‘Sailability’ days to enable anyone who's disabled to experience the thrill of sailing, so if you would like to take advantage of this please email sailability@girtonsc.com for more details. If you're already a sailor and looking for a friendly club nearby, why not come along one Sunday on or after March 9th, or contact the secretary@girtonsc.com. We look forward to meeting you all, whenever you can get down to Girton!

Trentside Reports Kettlethorpe and District Womens' Institute January 2014 January is the month to decide on our charities for the year and we were asked to have our suggestions ready for the AGM. The annual full Lincolnshire conference at Skegness will be on March 26th and a coach will be available for members. Next, on Tuesday May 6th, Kettlethorpe will host the spring group meeting in the village hall. Ann Lister is taking names for theatre trips. The first is for l0th April at Lincoln where the musical 'Grease' is being enacted. The other show, in Gainsborough is at the Trinity theatre to see ‘Annie’. No date is available at this stage. Our speaker for January was Douglas Carstairs, his subject ‘The Transportation of Prisoners in the Bad Old Days’. There was the same treatment for men and women, all were regarded as slaves. At first they might be sent to America, Bermuda or Gibraltar but gradually only Australia accepted them. Prisoners, or convicts, would be between the ages of 9 to 70. The journey was lengthy, old hulks were used, kept for this purpose around the south coast. One such 'cargo' left our shores in May 1776, arrived at Rio in August, Cape Town on October

10

13, and ended up in Botany Bay near Sydney in January. The convicts, who disembarked in February had not left the ship in eight months! Their punishment was augmented by animals taken aboard at Capetown and living space with 1.3 metres headroom. On land they suffered food rationing cut because the land was unworkable, and forced to work in coal mines. Females were treated as domestic slaves and were forced into marriage. Cat-o’nine tails lashes were used and 50 lashes was a common sentence. Should the victim become unconscious, the punishment would be stopped until he recovered, then carried on until the lashes were finished. There was much more, and I for one had never before realised just what horrors transportation covered. The competition was won by Pat Starker, followed by Sharon Mosedale and Janet Willcock, the raffles went to Ann Close, Barbara Clay, Dorothy Yardley, Anne Dolling, Yvette capes, Mary Wicks and Margaret Barrett. February 2014 We have been told that the shoe boxes we send regularly to Romania will have to stop because of the cost of transportation from England by lorry. Cancer Research

has thanked us for our recent donations, and our ’Pennies for Friendship' will continue to be collected at the March meeting. Volunteers are needed for the Lincolnshire Show by Friday April 11th. There is a form available to park free for the day chosen. The police have made an appeal for teddy bears to be brought to Gainsborough station. The object is to have some pacifying help with children involved in accidents and other causes of upset. Mr Gez Coates gave a talk about the Lincolnshire Fire Service where he has worked for twenty-five years. The audience were able to understand how the firemen worked varied times and work patterns. For one thing there are 200 full-time firemen in our county, apart from many who are part-time or not fully qualified as yet. Others can start on a part-time basis. Mr Coates began his service in Skegness and was part-time from 1988 until 1991. Some work on a four day shift plus night calls, while others work a two day/night with four days off. A typical morning start is 8.30am preparing the station and kit followed by outside preparation. From roughly 9am checks on equipment go on for another hour. Personnel also train with other stations. In the afternoon more training is continued, interrupted of course by what are called 'shouts',


Trentside Links which is of course when the public see them in action. At his first call Mr Coates was so keen he left the bath water running but thankfully he met his sister on the way and she went back to turn it off. There were many other occasions he recalls which, though they were not funny at the time, he can now recall with humour. Things like having to rescue a hedgehog from a roof, (not like the usual cat but no-one knew how the animal was up so high). Another time when a cow was stranded in a field and hole situation, the animal was most reluctant to be rescued and led the firemen into an away chase which left all thoroughly muddied. The acting President Janet Wilcox gave a vote of thanks. Raffle prizes went to Barbara Watson, Linda Mullaly, Barbara Clay, Margaret Barrett and Yvette Capes. The prize - an item related to the fire service, was won by Pat Green, followed by Vivienne Elliott and Christine Hollis. The meeting concluded as usual with light refreshments. Elise Hawker Lea

The Vicar Writes

F

or railway anoraks like me this has been a sad Christmas. Saxilby and Stow Park signal boxes were closed as part of a modenisation scheme to allow more and faster trains to use the route. With the passing of these signal boxes another link with the steam-age railway of my youth is broken, and I am filled with wistful nostalgia and longing for these reminders of a simpler, less frenetic age. The end of these old signal boxes reminds us that life changes rapidly these days. And that is difficult for most of us. We like the stability and security of the known, and we maybe look to the church to provide this for us. In a fast-moving world, the church may be seen as a secure and stable haven, where the old familiar pews and general layout have remained the same for ever, as have its values. That’s why The Mail on Sunday newspaper was up in arms a few weeks ago at the news that reference to sin was going to be taken out of the christening service. The newspaper argued that christening as a washing away of sin was the tradition,

â—?

March 2014

and that should be maintained even though few today believe it. The problem with this for the church is that if it hangs on to old attitudes because of tradition, it becomes further and further away from the people it is called to serve today. The church should be ready to look at its teaching and ensure that it can still speak to people as it did in different ages long a go. It has begun to do this with its attitude towards women in ministry, and attitudes towards remarriage of divorcees have markedly changed in the last thirty years, so there have been some signs of movement We might look to the traditions of the church to provide stability in an insecure world, but the church itself cannot be immune from change, or it will become irrelevant to the society it seeks to serve. This can be painful, and is challenging to the church as it wrestles with what acceptable change might be. But this is a challenge we must meet if we are to survive long into the 2lst century.

Celebrating Their 70th Wedding Anniversary on 19th March 2014 Babs and Bruce Minnitt of Newton-on-Trent

Retford. The wedding party were hardly able to contain their mirth whilst dressed in crushed clothes and carrying wilting flowers. Immediately after the photos were taken Bruce caught a train from Retford back to his unit. Within a few days he was stationed in North Africa and did not return for two and a half years. Bruce's brother Robin, now aged 89, was best man at their wedding and is currently living with his wife in Askrigg, Yorkshire. Bruce's sister, Sheila, was a bridesmaid and is living in her own home in Louth. Babs' sister Joyce was chief bridesmaid, she unfortunately passed away shortly after Bruce and Babs' golden wedding anniversary.

D

uring the Second World War Bruce, a bomber pilot, was given a 48-hour leave pass prior to leaving for North Africa. Already engaged since autumn 1943, he decided that this would be a good opportunity to get married. He arrived at Babs Wilmot's family home - White House Farm, Newtonon-Trent - at 8 o'clock on the Saturday morning and asked Babs and her family if they could organise a wedding in 2 days! Whilst Babs, her mother and prospective mother-in-law caught the train to Nottingham to go shopping for suitable wedding outfits, Bruce and Babs' sister, Joyce, went to Lincoln to obtain a special licence. During that day 60 family members and close friends

12

were contacted and invited to a wedding to be held the following day, Sunday 19th March 1944, at St Peter's church, Newton-on-Trent, followed by a buffet reception at White House Farm. Luckily the wedding cake had already been made as it was intended for Babs' 21st birthday on 19th April. Babs' wedding ring was borrowed from an aunt. After their wedding reception Babs and Bruce had a 2-day honeymoon in the Victoria Hotel, Nottingham. Unable to organise a photographer at such short notice, the formal wedding photos were taken on their return from honeymoon the following Tuesday, in

After such an unusual start to married life, after 70 years they still live happily in Newton-on-Trent, having produced three children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, with two more expected this March.

Party Time at Marton

R

EALLY exciting news for you all this issue as we very proudly announce that The Ethan Maull 'Up Yours to Cancer' Foundation now has official charity status (The paperwork has been endless but we got there in the end!) This will make it so much easier for our fundraisers to set up 'just giving' pages and for gift aid to be added. Huge thanks to everyone involved in making this happen. Our charity number is 1155905.

T

he village hall committee has been busy organising the children’s party on 12th January and the over 60s party on 18th January. Over 40 children from age 2 to 11 were entertained by Margicella, doing magic and games. Members of the committee served burger and chips. A lot of running about and dancing ensured the children went home tired and happy with their party bags. Now in its 62nd year the over 60s party once again was a very enjoyable evening for nearly 70 people who attended. After the meal of cold meat, pork pie, salad and of course trifle, the guests were entertained firstly by Di Gibbs, who gave us two funny and amusing poems. Sandra Tudor and Henry (her dog) showed us what new skills and tricks he had learnt from last year. Hamish Temple showed his expertise at magic and mind games.

After drawing the raffle and the result of the quiz, the Lincoln Bevoir Youth Band played various tunes depicting music through the years from the Beatles to Adele. The band gave an outstanding performance, the finale had everyone enjoying waving their arms to Hey Jude. The over 60s party has many traditions, the special guest cutting the cake is one, this year we had two cakes and two special people were asked – Pat Hammond for keeping the Darby and Joan Club going and doing so much for the elderly in the village. Gladys Simpson involved in various organisations, a stalwart of the village, friend to many. Both were surprised and pleased to cut the cakes. On leaving all guests received an orange and sweets. David Smith, Chairman of Marton & Gate Burton village hall would like to thank everyone who gave donations, helped in any way and hoped everyone had an enjoyable evening and looking forward to next year.

We would like to say a very very special thank you today to a wonderful family who thought of Ethan when their own lives were turned upside down. When Sue Derby died from leukaemia earlier this year, her husband Keith and children Sonia & Paul decided they wanted to raise money for Ethan's foundation at her funeral. They requested that a donation be made to his foundation in place of flowers for Sue. The donations amounted to a fantastic £520. We can't begin to thank Keith, Sonia and Paul enough for thinking of Ethan and raising money for him at such a devastating time in their own lives - and to everyone who so generously donated. Thank you so much. The new bands have arrived. Lots more wrist bands in the new design and colours chosen by Ethan! Watch out for them as we start to roll them out over the next week! Sills & Betteridge - Charity of the Year We were delighted when this local company picked Ethan's foundation as their Charity of the Year. Lots of fundraising activities are already underway with many more planned for 2014. Keep up-to-date with further news & events on our Facebook page.

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY

not have done this” then skirt quickly over that point and end with giving you a long list of reasons why this was the other person’s fault. It seems to me that we can justify any amount of bad behaviour by blaming other people and not taking responsibility for our own actions.

Trentside Links - Annual Report for 2012/13

Trentside Links Website - The website is going through a makeover at present to bring it up-to-date for modern technology. This will include ensuring that the site is compatible with the latest smartphone and tablet technology and that our site is organised in the most efficient way to showcase the photos and media we have collected over the years. Further details on the website development will be included in the Trentside Links when ready.

ne of the hardest things I find is to get some people to accept responsibility for their own actions and even their own lives. When we get called to an incident people are very keen to tell us who to blame without any evidence but it’s the ‘most obvious’. However you need evidence. That means somebody is willing to make a statement that they saw it, not just that they believe it, and people are not always willing to do that. Some people will tell you their side of the story but omitting the fact that they themselves have done something that may have provoked the situation. "If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month." Theodore Roosevelt

Evasion, omission and anything that will justify what they have done, but very rarely have I ever just been told the bare facts. This is not criticism, just an observation that people do not like to tell you things that show themselves in a bad light and if they have done something not very pleasant then there must have been some sort of extreme provocation. Quite often someone will get to a point of the story and say “I probably should

013 has proven to be another busy year for the organisation, with the popularity of the magazine holding up and content continuing to come in for each and every issue. Trentside Links Magazine - We continue to stick to our aim of producing a high quality magazine with a good advert/ content ratio. The magazine is still well thought of and for each issue there is an excellent level of contribution from the community for the content. We continue to receive information and historical articles and there have also been one or two heated debates on subjects that readers have felt compelled to write in about. The magazine remains selffunding and for the first time we are introducing a small rise in advertising costs to reflect increases in our own costs, at the same time we have also improved the quality of the paper the magazine is printed on which produces a clearer, sharper print. Trentside Links Photo Archive - The archive still remains free to view via Flickr and always attracts interest from the public, asking questions and

Historical Book Project - Stage 1 of the project is now underway with the grant application being submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund. We will keep committed members and readers updated and if successful we hope to have stage 2 of the project, collating and researching stories, information, pictures and media, underway by May 2014. We think that we have put an exciting proposition to the grant provider and feel we have an excellent case to be supported. Finally I would like to thank all the volunteers, committee members and members of the public who have supported us in 2013 and we look forward to another successful year in 2014.

St Helen's Church Thorney Services at St Helen’s Church Sunday 23rd March 10.30am Morning Worship, Lay led I can’t give church service times for April and May at the moment due to revision of the rota. Please check the notice board as a monthly list is always there. Our Annual Church Meeting will be held in church at 7.30pm on Monday 7th April. Do join us! Members of the PCC (Parochial Church Council) have been assured by the architect that the repair work being carried out at church is of a very high standard. As well as replacement of coping stones, some new carved dragons on the roof and new guttering, we have had permission to remove the two bells which were in need of some restoration and had become a Health and Safety issue. Once they are returned we are planning a village celebration so look out for the invitations! We’ve been told that both bells have never been heard in Thorney, as one has always been cracked, so it will be wonderful to hear them and we’ll be looking for volunteers to ring them for us. They’re not the usual, heavy, church bells, but more like a continental bell and may be rung by anyone over the age of eight, with training. Let me know if you are interested, as we have very experienced bell ringers willing to train others and we will need people to ring quite often. NEWARK FOODBANK Did you know that 1 in 5 people are living below the poverty line in the UK? Foodbanks help to prevent family breakdown, housing loss, crime and mental health problems. Newark Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust’s UK-wide foodbank network.

Church is open for your donations on LIBRARY VAN DAYS and when there is a service, but if you would like to make a donation at another time, please bring items to Anne Massey or Anna Dennison.
