Welcome to TW11

M

ARCH heralds a new season, and my personal favourite, yes let’s give a round of applause for spring! There is an equinox on the 20th, when the sun’s position has day and night at equal lengths. Daylight has been increasing by around 2 minutes per day since January, all gratefully received. And when the clocks go forward at 1am on the 26th, we will all be bouncing out of bed that bit happier, won’t we? We have news from Teddington 800, see page 4, where Anne McTear, the chair of the steering committee invites you to get involved with this wonderful community initiative. It is going to be a busy year.

With our regular columns and a round up of what is going on in the area, I hope you enjoy this issue of TW11 and look forward to seeing you again next month.

HAT I COMPLETELY LOVE ABOUT living in Teddington is not the river or the park (totally fab of course), or the shops or the pubs (again I’m a big fan), or the schools, the churches, the swimming pool or the library (lucky to have all those), no, what really gets me is the sheer energy, creativity and enthusiasm of the people here. It’s the atmosphere of downright oomph or what my children like to call ‘The Teddosphere’! Since the very first time we at St Mary with St Alban church mentioned the idea of a celebration to mark the Parish of Teddington turning 800, I and the organising team, have been met with a great big wave of that oomph, from both individuals and local organisations alike. The kind that says, ‘we can make a fun town sports day happen’, that says ‘a heritage and art exhibit - you can hold that here or ‘our school would love to help’ or I’m a historian I’ll help write it’, the kind that says, ‘borrow our lecture theatre / gardens / pitches / archives / photos / school band / flower arrangers / Guides & Scouts / boat house / clubhouse / Bishop (actually, we already kind of had one of those) / time / energy / commitment. The kind that says, ‘a Teddington 800 Ball - how bloomin’ brilliant, let’s do this!’ With all this support, it’s going to be a fab year getting Teddington together - having fun, learning, commemorating and celebrating. So much planning and organising is underway and it’s the perfect time to get involved with your ideas and skills. If you love Teddington like I do and you want to be part of it’s 800th anniversary, (because let’s face it, it’s going to be a while ‘til the 900th), then we want to hear from you - there are tons and tons of big things and little things you could do to help make something amazing happen here in 2017.

4 | TW11 – March 2017

Have a think about some of these maybe: Could you bake our ‘800 cake’ for the Teddington800 launch service in June? Would you like to sponsor one of the Flower Festival displays in recognition of someone or of a special memory? Can you contribute to our history exhibit or local memories board or the ‘Visions of Teddington’ art display? Would you like to enter the town sports day either the silly old fashioned family games or as a club team in the ‘Teddington Inter Sport Challenge’? Could you devise a Teddington 800 quiz? Could you sponsor the September Teddington800 ball? Have you an acting / speaking / musical talent and could perform in the ‘Teddington Review’ play or at the Thomas Traherne poetry day in the Autumn? Could you add something extra special to our River Blessing? Could you help design our Children’s Summer history trail? Could you put up a poster in your window or on your website for us? We have wonderful organisers and will need lots of hands-on-doers - could you help on the day to setup or pack up or serve refreshments at one of the events? ...... or could you be the one to come up with the best idea ever that we haven’t thought of yet! I do hope so - so get in touch! Lots more to tell you next month......... PS Thanks Teddington Soc, Landmark, NPL, TRFC, TCC, TTCC, TAFC, RNLI, Library and all our lovely volunteer team so far!

What do I want for my child?

I

Health & Beauty Natural Alternatives to Botox

S

INCE CLEOPATRA BATHED IN DONKEY milk, people around the world have experimented with different ways to try to turn the clock back and restore their youthful beauty. Today, the demand for Botox, fillers and peels has never been greater. But what do these treatments involve and how effective are they? Are there natural alternatives that might be less harmful in the long term? WHAT IS BOTOX? Botox is a toxin which is injected in extremely small concentrations, to prevent signals from nerve cells reaching muscles, effectively paralysing them. Medically, it can be effective in treating conditions such as muscular and bladder spasms, excessive sweating, cerebral palsy and even some vocal cord defects. However, it is more commonly known for cosmetic treatment, smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, lips and around the eyes. It is costly, uncomfortable and can cause unpleasant side effects. The same results can be achieved using several different natural alternatives, which are far less invasive and can be remarkably long-lasting. COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE Whereas Botox wears off after a few weeks or months, cosmetic acupuncture can stimulate certain muscle groups, meaning that the results actually improve over time. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced by improving facial tone and the production of collagen fibre is stimulated by invigorating the flow of energy (‘Qi’) and blood circulation, improving facial tone and elasticity. NATURAL FACELIFT MASSAGE Specialist facial massage can rejuvenate your skin, leaving your face looking fresh, vibrant and youthful. Although a difference can be seen after just one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of six weekly treatments, followed by monthly maintenance treatments. Home care advice and simple facial exercises are recommended at the end of your

first treatment, which will help maintain the skin between treatments. NATURALLY PLUMP LIPS An easy, cheap way of creating naturally plump lips is to simply dip a damp cotton bud in peppermint oil and gently apply it to clean lips. It will cause slight tingling but your lips will be lusciously plump for a few hours. ANTI-AGING FACIALS Natural facials contain powerful plant technology and high touch skin therapy to renew, repair and regenerate the skin, reducing lines and wrinkles. A course of 3 to 6 treatments is normally recommended. The best results are achieved by using purely natural products, avoiding highly perfumed or paraben-based brands, which could cause sensitivity and unbalance the skin. PEELS Gentle plant peels won’t cause redness or irritation. They will leave pores refined and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. A simple home alternative is to use pineapple and lemon, whose natural citric acid will cleanse the skin. Chemical peels use hydroxyl acids, which remove the top layer of skin, exposing newer smoother skin underneath. Even though this is a natural process it can cause redness and stinging and varies greatly in strength, so should not be used on sensitive skin. MICRODERMABRASION Applying aluminium oxide crystals to the skin, then suctioning them off, can smooth and retexture the skin. This exfoliates dead and dull skin cells, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and

refining pores, leaving the skin brighter and fresher. For a home alternative, apply brown sugar on a dampened face with circler motion. NEURO-PEPTIDES AND ALGAE They do not leave the skin frozen and can be absorbed easily, leaving the skin youthful, firm and plump, and restoring elastin and collagen. Look for products with turmeric to brighten, plant stem cells and apricot seed oil to naturally repair, or cactus, argan oil and lady thistle to help moisturise and smooth fine lines. As with all beauty treatment, the best results are achieved with a consistent routine. If you choose to look after your skin at home or regularly visit the salon, a preventative approach is always easier than cure. Start looking after your skin early in your life, using gentle products to keep your skin naturally in balance.

History Focus John Charles Buckmaster (1801 – 1908) Part I

A

NYONE USING TEDDINGTON LIBRARY can hardly fail to have noticed the refurbished foundation stones listing all of the Teddington worthies who were involved in the building and opening of it. One of these names is J C Buckmaster Esq, it is a name that many people recall but cannot remember the reason why. So who was he? In fact his history is as much a mystery as anything else. John Charles Buckmaster (JCB) was born in the tiny village of Slapton, Buckinghamshire, about 2 miles south of Leighton Buzzard. Some recorders give his birth date as 23 February 1823 but he used the year of 1819 and so I shall stay with that. Slapton was a very small agricultural community and the Buckmasters had farmed there for over 300 years. Reforms in the social system brought about the enclosure movement and JCB’s grandfather, Christopher, was unable to cope with these changes and so gradually sold off portions of the Buckmaster land. This had the effect of reducing their status from yeoman farmers to little more than agricultural labourers. JCB had a sibling, Richard Price, born 2 years after him. The next part of the story is very complicated. His father, Thomas Buckmaster, is supposed to have married Phoebe Price on 17th October 1824 but JCB was adamant that his mother died of smallpox in November 1822. Writing in June 1933, JCB’s second born son, Prof George Buckmaster said to his youngest brother ‘I have come to the conclusion that father was illegitimate..... It is an amazing story to learn at 75.’ Whatever the case, Thomas was brokenhearted on the death of his wife and took heavily to drink, squandered all of his holdings and thus becoming an object of local scorn. A Mrs Andrews, who was later the maid of JCB’s eldest son, recalled how as a girl, she would run to the window to watch the old man making his way home, ‘drunk as usual’, ‘but you always knew he was a real gentleman by the silver buckles on his shoes.’

22 | TW11 – March 2017

Thomas was incapable of looking after the boys and passed this over to their grandmother Susannah Price, nee Fontaine. Unfortunately the old lady suffered badly from arthritis and could no longer bring up the boys so when he was 7, JCB was sent to live with an uncle in Uxbridge. The behaviour of this uncle was both sadistic and barbaric and it is to be marvelled that JCB survived intact to lead a normal life. He was there for 3 years and during this time his only respite from a cruel and inhumane upbringing was at the local British and Foreign Society Elementary School and Sunday School where it is reputed he stayed from 11am to 8pm every time. At age 10 he was returned to Slapton and deemed fit enough to start work as a farm labourer. He befriended the curate who was very unpopular in the village and was privately educated by him. He was witnessing the great agricultural depression and noticed the rise of Methodism. He reckoned that 75% of the village went over to Methodist teaching and the remaining 25% were non-believers. At this time the ‘Swing’ riots were breaking out all over the country and at a neighbouring town, JCB saw the local yeomanry called out to disperse a lively meeting. These events left a deep impression on JCB and at age 13, his father sent him back to Uxbridge to be apprenticed to a carpenter/joiner and to stay at his uncle’s house. An uneasy relationship ensued which lasted for 3 years until he broke the apprenticeship and ran away to London. He was caught, returned to Uxbridge and spent


a night in the town gaol where he encountered two highwaymen – his first brush with criminals. His grandmother died and left him a bequest of £10 with which he bought himself a second hand chest of tools. He was still determined to break his apprenticeship and planned the second attempt with much more precision. In the spring of 1837 he left Uxbridge, having sent all of his tools ahead, walked 50 miles to Andover eventually arriving in Salisbury. Here he was introduced to the Chartist movement although he did not join it. He did however contract smallpox, which in those days was a killer, but luckily he was nursed back to health by a gypsy woman, a kindness he never forgot. The following year he moved on to Tiverton in Devon where he became heavily involved with the local Anti-Corn Law Movement. This was a bad time for the national economy and JCB grew to be a formidable public speaker and political activist. He attended the London Conference of the Anti-Corn Law Association in February 1839 and later met Lord Morpeth, who was to have a considerable influence in his life. As opposition to the Corn Laws grew, it became obvious that they would be repealed and JCB then sought the advice of Lord Morpeth as to what his next career move should be. Morpeth said that the Government would next have to tackle the ‘Education Question’ and suggested that JCB should prepare himself for a career in education. With Morpeth’s help, JCB joined St John’s College, Battersea, as a trainee teacher in January 1844. The College was founded by its principal, John Kay-Shuttleworth in 1840 and offered a very difficult course, being only 18 months rather than the usual 3 years. The working hours were 5.30am to 9.30pm daily. Whilst still a student there, he assisted Kay-Shuttleworth in teaching at the Norwood School for Pauper Children. An outbreak of cholera struck the school and out of 1400 children, 342 died in the first week of the attack. The School was closed and the surviving children dispersed amongst other schools. This experience instilled in him a strong sense of public duty.

On qualifying as a teacher, JCB took up a post at Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight between 1845-47. Here he was highly critical of the management of the Prison and by chance had the opportunity to show it. On a day when popular reformers Charles Dickens and Hepworth Dixon came to visit the prison, JCB was the only one of the staff present to escort them around the buildings. He was able to give vent to his opinions as to where the regime was going wrong and his listeners were only too pleased to jot it down. This was later in national print and JCB was sacked for his trouble. Although this was clearly an event waiting to happen, the timing was not of his making and he found himself out of work. There are some blanks in his life which are difficult to fill and this is one of them. I suspect that Lord Morpeth supported him temporarily until Kay-Shuttleworth took him on as one of the permanent staff at St John’s College. Life seems to have settled down for him and the next most memorable thing in his life was his marriage to Emily Anne Goodliffe in August 1853. What happened next? We will continue to look at the history of J C Buckmaster next month.

Teddington Update HEATHROW Periods of easterlies since Christmas have brought unwelcome noise from aircraft taking off over Teddington, worsened by recent concentration of flight paths. I chaired the Council’s Heathrow Committee in mid-February with a full agenda:Night Flights Separately from the Third Runway proposal, the Government has been consulting on its proposals for regulating night flights in the period 2017-22. Despite some tinkering these effectively maintain the status quo and the Council is maintaining its position that all night flights between 11pm and 7am should be banned. Third Runway: Legal Challenge, National Policy Statement and Airspace Policy A judicial review application by Richmond and other Councils to halt the Government’s Third Runway proposals was struck out in the High Court as premature. Now the Government has published its draft National Policy Statement to increase airport capacity in the South-East with a Third (North-West) Runway at Heathrow. An ‘interactive Roadshow’ took place in Twickenham last month with another at the Richmond Adult and Community College at Parkshot on 10th March from 11am to 8pm. The Council opposes the Third Runway on grounds of, inter alia, noise and air pollution but one immediate concern is that no details of flight paths are given. This is also relevant to the parallel consultation on National Airspace Policy which is also until 25th May. Cranford Agreement Meanwhile there is the prospect of some very local relief from aircraft noise in three years time. Under the Cranford Agreement, to protect Cranford village, the northern Runway is not generally used for easterly take offs. Planning permission has now been given on appeal for the taxiways that will enable the Government to implement its decision to revoke the Cranford Agreement. So some of the present take offs from the southern Runway over North Teddington may use the northern Runway 24 | TW11 – March 2017

and pass over Twickenham instead. But of course any relief could be short-lived if a Third Runway is built. New BTMs Assisted by work done by Teddington Society members, the Council has published a further list of Buildings of Townscape Merit. This is a category of Heritage Asset enjoying a degree of protection, but less than for listed buildings. As well as houses in Middle Lane and Royal Road, the cheese shop in Station Road and the horse trough and old wall in Park Road have been included. THE GARDEN LAST MONTH As well as snowdrops, February brings winterflowering clematis which does well in Teddington. This one, by my kitchen window, is rather unimaginatively called Winter Beauty.
