Commissioner calls for fresh approach on reducing reoffending Editor Kevin Gover reports on the plans from Simon Hayes as changes to managing offenders come into effect
Why they don't do just rugger at Twickers Back Page
email@example.com Last year, the government made it clear it was going to put measures in place to tackle re-offending. Almost half of all adults leaving prison are reconvicted within a year. For those serving short sentences, the figure is even higher. The government talked of ‘payment by results.’ In the same week that new arrangements for managing offenders have been put in place as part of the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation agenda, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Simon Hayes has published a White Paper setting out recommendations aimed at reducing reoffending.

Perins School's student Alastair Bayliss might be only 15 but there is no doubt he knows his maths. After he excelled in the Intermediate Maths Challenge, Alastair will have the chance to attend the UK Mathematics Trust Summer School, based at St Anne’s College at the University of Oxford. In this programme, 40 of the UK's most talented young mathematicians participate in master classes, small group work and teams competitions. While other children are relaxing in the summer holidays, these students will be tested with intensive mathematical activities to challenge their capacities.
Yeeeeeesss!! Loyalties to favourite teams were under the spotlight recently with the workforce at Mercedes-Benz of Winchester signing up for The Big Match 'wear a football shirt to work' day. The event was staged to help the 200 children taking part in The Big Match Kidz session -
Alastair is currently taking his GCSEs at Perins School in Alresford. His Maths teacher, Susan Exley couldn't speak more highly of him: "Alastair is a very gifted mathematician, who achieved an A* in his GCSE whilst in year 10. "He has been studying for his AS Level in Mathematics during year 11. He has always performed exceptionally well in the UK Mathematics Trust Challenges, and has qualified for the Olympiad Round for the last three consecutive years." We'll be sure at Winchester Today to let you know in the future how this bright star manages to do.
which involves children aged between 5 and 15. All of the money raised by Mercedes-Benz will be donated to the children's individual virgin money giving pages to help them hit their target. From that, the money will then be automatically split between Action for Children and The Brain Tumour Charity.
Meals on plates - not in the bin! Another six - week course of Community Cookery Skills classes is getting underway, making sure men over 55 can become a dab hand in the kitchen. The course has been given the goahead thanks to county money in a public health funding grant donated to the city council.
Previous events have been successful in a number of areas across the Winchester District. Des Holyhead attended the course in Bishop’s Waltham: “My wife was going into hospital, so it was a case of either come on the course or starve!” The six-week course will help participants gain ideas and tips on preparing simple healthy meals.

Hungry rodents blamed for Cheriton fire by António Fernandes A farmhouse has gone up in smoke in Cheriton, most likely caused by hungry rodents in the attic. No one was hurt, but the fire caused severe damage. The investigation revealed that the fire was probably caused by rodents chewing off the PVC insulation from electrical cabling in the roof. Even though part of the house’s roof and top floor were badly damaged, things could have been much worse if it wasn’t for the firefighters' action, according to the officer in charge, Station Manager Mark Budden: “The firefighters worked extremely hard to stop the fire spreading to the
rest of the roof and also salvaged much of the owner’s property from the house. “The first crew on the scene put in place a really good plan, which ultimately saved much of the roof and top floor of the building." Almost fifty firefighters were at the scene to save the historic property on North End Lane, the core of which dates from the 17th century. The owners, their four children and two friends were in the house when the fire broke out, but managed to escape. They were able to call 999 and by doing so avoided even bigger damage. Station Manager Budden applauded their response: "The family did absolutely the right thing. In the event of a fire, we urge people to get out, stay out and call us out."

Burying the past:
Winchester Today's Andy Goddard discovers how people in the future may get a surprise one day at Danebury Hill Fort. The burial of the time capsule comes at the end of a three-year project, during which 760 children from 21 schools visited Danebury Hill fort, with 270 children taking part in story making workshops that were made into podcasts. Students from Winton Community Academy have taken everyday items from the present into the time capsule to try to tell the people of the future one day what we were like. The capsule in the ground contains a hard drive, photographs, local newsletters - and even their old milk teeth.
wealth of information about us as people. All this comes from a Heritage fund grant of £41,000 to the Hill fort to increase awareness of the site. The money has gone into working with local children in order to teach them about the stories and histories that surround the site. Culture, Recreation and Countryside boss Keith Chapman helped bury the time capsule and place the interpretation stone that encloses it underground: “The Heritage Lottery Fund money has enabled us to create a lasting legacy to Danebury’s history and a practical place for visitors to enjoy the atmosphere, for which we are hugely grateful.
Also in the package were items commemorating the centenary of the First World War and videos of performing arts pieces.
"I had the privilege of helping to bury the time capsule and place the interpretation stone, which marked the end of the funding for this amazing project.
All this is supposed to give those who may eventually find it a glimpse of what life was like in our time - just as the iron age fort has given us a glimpse of what life was like then.
"However, this is just the beginning of the site being established as a historic landmark within Hampshire.”
The photographs and the newsletters are to give them a sense of what our culture was like. The teeth are there to provide a DNA sample to the people of the future so that they can have a

Cara Dillon : Winchester Theatre Royal, Sunday 15 June 2014
Music: Turn It Up!
Q Magazine once described her as "quite possibly the world's most beautiful female voice” - and now we'll soon have the chance to enjoy Cara Dillon all for ourselves in Winchester. Cara's story is not that of the usual artist. Raised in the tradition of Irish folk music she was signed at different times by Warners, the major label regarded at the time as the coolest and most artist friendly and then by Rough Trade, an indie label with very much the same reputation. Yet her last album, 'Hill Of Thieves' - her first on her own Charcoal label - has become her most successful to date, garnering her both critical acclaim and commercial success. Nearly six years on, 'A
Thousand Hearts' has just been released. She is joined again, as she has been throughout her career by partner Sam Lakeman: “We don’t exactly rush these things but our experiences have taught us it’s better to get it right than have regrets.
there is a wealth of songs that I know and over time the songs tend to find me. I’ve no particular rules as to what should or shouldn’t be considered and like 'Hill of Thieves' 'A Thousand Hearts' is a collection that I’m really comfortable and confident with.”
"We learnt so much from our time with Warners and Rough Trade and the success of 'Hill of Thieves' reflects that, although it was being on our own label that enabled us to be bold about our choice of material.
Another noticeable difference has been that Cara’s voice has matured greatly, although one aspect of that change was enforced. In 2008 after most of 'Hill of Thieves' had been recorded, Cara was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic. That diagnoses and ongoing day to day treatment has meant that her voice has grown stronger, something that has been appreciated by recent live audiences.
“It didn’t have an obviously radio friendly track on it but as soon as the first reviews came in, it was clear we’d done the right thing." A year after the release, 'Hill of Thieves' won BBC Radio 2 Folk Album Of The Year, vindicating their decision to go it alone. Cara believes the gap between releases is good: “We don’t search for material in the conventional sense,
Wow. Booking the Delines is a big deal for the Railway - their London show is already sold out and most venues they are playing are far bigger.
Frampton’s Still Alive Peter Frampton’s music has crossed generations from his teen heart-throb years with The Herd through to many 5th-form record players in the 1970s with ‘Frampton Comes Alive’ - and remakes of his classic songs. Now comes a new mini-album, “Hummingbird In A Box”, will be released in the UK and US on Tuesday June 24 via RED Distribution/Sony Music. The new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, featuring seven original guitar pieces in Frampton’s virtuosic stylings. He composed all songs on the mini-album along with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for “Fingerprints”, which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. The music debuted in April 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. Two of the Cincinnati Ballet’s spring production’s segments were choreographed to existing Frampton music - with Frampton and his band performing live - while a third section featured the new composition by Frampton and Kennedy. Of the project Frampton notes: “Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience. There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope.” Kennedy agrees:
But writer and band leader Willy Vlautin is such a fan of the Railway that he insisted on playing. The Delines are led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations TX), alongside the keyboard work of Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) as well as fellow Portlanders Sean Oldham and songwriter/novelist Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine) and on pedal
That and the experience of the very premature birth of her twin sons in 2006 has resulted in a very confident and relaxed singer, happy to be doing something she loves: "This is what I do. I'd be doing it anyway. I’m just privileged to be able to do it for a living.”
You can see Cara at the Theatre Royal on Sunday 15th June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £21 (£19.50 conc). 01962 840440

REVIEW: West Side Story, Mayflower Winchester Today's David Cradduck LOVED to be in America! Fast, furious, frenetic, fabulous – four stars! The latest incarnation of classic musical West Side Story took downtown Southampton by storm. It is perhaps fitting that as the day we watched this elderly but hugely energetic show at The Mayflower it was also William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday (and death day too, apparently). It was The Bard’s dramatic tale of passion, unrequited love, prejudice and violence –Romeo and Juliet that inspired the creators of West Side Story in the late 50s. The big difference is that instead of the doomed passion of the two young lovers being set amongst feuding aristocratic families, the Montagues and the Capulets, the backdrop for this story is the turmoil of post war New York streets and the gang warfare between the Jets – young rebellious, disillusioned American whites – and the Sharks, incomers from Peurto Rico seeking the American Dream.
This phase in New York’s history was a troubled one –crime, unemployment and poverty hit an all time high, the tension between the multi-ethnic communities and the police a constant simmering pot of tension and delinquency. It all seems an unlikely place to set such a colourful, flamboyant musical, given all those foot-tapping and infectious songs we grew up knowing so well: ‘Tonight’, ‘Maria’, ‘America’ and ‘Somewhere’ from Leonard
Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim are as familiar to many a generation as more recent West End showstoppers.
boasts an amazing line-up of backups, standbys and understudies to ensure perfection despite illness.
But though the storyline is intense and gritty, this amazing show never fails to entertain our emotions – it is funny, poignant, sad, maddening, heart warming and heart stopping all in the same bag.
If I hadn’t been told that Charlotte Baptie would be playing Maria and Sinead Kenny would be standing in for Anita, I for one wouldn’t have known, such was the dynamism and professionalism that they brought to both roles.
Outstanding above all is the superb, near-balletic dancing, choreographed by director Joey McKneely. To cast a show which relies on young men and women who can dance effortlessly, sing with near operatic voices and act their socks off is a tricky job, but not only has this production managed it but also
Halbsgut – indeed for me the lighting plays a huge role in scene-setting and creating the mix of moods – the use of colour and backlighting is particularly stunning. Add a skillfully balanced orchestra and energetic musical director in Ben van Tienen and this street-tough show is complete.
Louis Maskell as young hero Tony, Javier Cid as Shark leader Bernardo and Jack Wilcox as Riff, complete the principle set with brilliant performances but this is very much a supreme example of great teamwork.
If he was here to see it, creator, producer, director and choreographer Jerome Robbins from the original Broadway show would be highly satisfied that his dream show lives on and is as relevant today as it was all those years ago.

stage in the studio, forever looking at himself in the monitors. And here it is, laid out before us; the life and music of a man who wanted to be "Bigger Than Elvis"... and yet both he and Elvis died within a month of each other in 1977.
REVIEW: 20th Century Boy, Mayflower Winchester Today's Kevin Gover discovers plenty of Hot Love at the Mayflower for 20th Century Boy (***** Five Stars) From the moment I walked in to the Mayflower, I knew this was going to be a good night. Even the music being played beforehand was of an era that just transported me back to a time that was just... just so special. You either loved glam rock or hated it. Me? I didn't just love it, I simply ADORED it. Blasting out of the speakers was Roxy's Virginia Plain - one of THE songs in 1972 that transformed my life and career. I heard that particular song at a disco in 1972 alongside T. Rex and all those other greats. I immediately wanted to be a DJ. Not that I have ever forgotten those times anyway. Marc Bolan's music has survived, long after some of his contemporaries have been forgotten about. How many people can honestly
say that they don't sing along to Hot Love when they hear it on the radio? Marc Bolan and I have previous. He was part of my life in the early 1970s when it was just great to be a teenager. If I couldn't play an instrument, then I was sure going to play his records on the radio later in life. I can remember as if it were yesterday the day one of my classmates brought Electric Warrior to school. This was the album that shot Marc Bolan and T Rex to superstardom, and the one which is featured in the Billy Elliot. Perhaps it was strange that in an allboys school, this one moment should have caused so much fuss. But it was clear that Bolan appealed to us and to female fans. We all loved the music - they did the screaming and loved the look. Many of them feature in archive footage that's flashed up around the stage. Marc was one of those guys that we all talked about in school on a Friday morning post Thursday's Top of the Pops. The way he commanded the
Marc's death as we know was a sudden and unexpected one for a person who wrote lyrics that talked of a life of peace and love. His beloved purple Mini car hit a tree in Barnes. He wasn't even driving; that was Gloria Jones, Marc's girlfriend and backing vocalist in T. Rex at the time. Marc was 2 weeks short of his 30th birthday. She survived, he didn't. Their son, Rolan, escaped being a passenger because he was at his grandparents' house. He was barely two at the time, and the show is his quest to discover his father's life, to come back to England, to see people and places and discover his past to make peace with his own future. We're taken through the early days of Bolan's initial quest for stardom, and how his music was initially triumphed by Radio 1 DJ and friend John Peel. The rest comes at you thick and fast; I already had tears in my eyes towards the end of the first act with songs like Ride a White Swan - and those I had forgotten like Debora. There are plenty of jokes too. I mean, just how do you get to Number 1 when Grandad is already there?! Director Gary Lloyd says casting was "a joy... and needed to have a combination of characters who could also pick up an instrument and play this iconic music..." - and so they do, because T.Rex had that unique sound.
The cast do not disappoint; Luke Bailey is a familiar face and gave a tender portrayal of Rolan. Donna Hines (Gloria) can sure belt out a tune. I loved the infectious smile (particularly in the encore) of Lucy Sinclair who plays Marc's wife June. Sue Jenkins is another familiar face and revelled in her role of Phyllis. Warren Sollars has Marc's speech, singing and mannerisms down to a 'T'. At times, it is quite uncanny. The show had promised to be warts-and-all, and it is difficult to watch these aspects of the show sometimes; Gloria blaming herself for the accident, Marc's bust-ups with former friend DJ John Peel and his record producer Tony Visconti. But we cannot forget the legacy, and the reason we are here: the music. Boy, what a legacy. 4 Number 1s...10 songs in the UK Top 10... The encore is sensational, bringing even more hits and the audience to their feet, clapping and singing along. Everyone around me was still singing
The show is a triumph for all of us who knew all of the words, and for those who discovered them tonight. And girls... sorry, but the red fluffy boa I was given tonight is MINE! 20th Century Boy is touring around the UK until July.

Dreamy Clarence, 9th Earl of Emsworth and his equally dotty heir Freddie, world- (and brother-) weary sister Lady Connie, Beach the loyal but usually tipsy butler, arch rival in the pig-and-pumpkin stakes Sir Gregory ParsloeParsloe, his jodhpur-clad niece Jennifer (rides like Diana, according to Freddie) and other assorted odd characters all come together at Blandings Castle for a very comedic and hectic weekend of misunderstandings. And then of course, thereâ€™s Clarenceâ€™s soulmate The Empress, a hefty porker who is the only creature he has any real understanding of, and with. Much mirth and jollity will be the order of the day for the four night run from Wed 11th â€“ Sat 14th June. If there are any left, tickets are ÂŁ9 from www.thecheritonplayers.org.uk - fight for a seat!

Anyone who has read the original Blandings Castle and other stories by PG Wodehouse will know that the recent Blandings BBC series featuring Timothy Spall, Jennifer Saunders and Harry Enfield was not the most faithful to the authorâ€™s original books. So it is refreshing to note that John Chapmanâ€™s adaptation of Blandings for the stage is much closer to the delightful and hilarious stories penned by the great man himself. Following on from Decemberâ€™s classic mystery drama An Inspector Calls, Cheriton Players have chosen to revert to humour for their spring/ summer production and audiences will be introduced to the quaint and quirky characters that make up the cast.

WINCHESTER TODAY JUNE 2014
On your bike! Peter Symonds students past and present came together at Twickenham Stadium recently, aiming to cycle non-stop and cover 1000km during the 32 hours of the London leg of the IRB Rugby Sevens. Representing the Symondians RFU the group rode static bikes in three stations from kick off to final whistle to raise funds for GOSH (Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital) and the RFU Injured Players Charity. Not only did they fulfil their ambition but they exceeded it -
Sherborne House National Champions! Congratulations to Sherborne House School in Chandler's Ford for their success at the National Schools Championships for Rhythmic Gymnastics. The championships saw record entries with competitors from North Yorkshire to the South Coast. Sherborne House School were entered in the Under 9 section of the competition in both Level 1 and Level 2. At the end of the day, Sherborne's combined scores of 34.300 in Level 1 and 30.500 in Level 2, secured them both trophies and made them National Team Champions. They share the title in Level 1, with the team from Great Houghton School in Northampton.
cycling over 3600km! Amongst those supporting the team and cycling the equivalent distance (x 3.5) from Land's End to John O'Groats on the three bikes were current students: Dom Newbold and Joe Marchant (team leaders), Livvy Probert, Hattie Brench-Jones, Luke Till, Tom Wilkinson, Arnie Ross, Luke Moore, Ryan Thomas, Jake Till and Sasha Bryan. They were joined by alumni - Jake Hiscock, Anja Dixon, Kirsty Sayers, Louise Dadswell, Alex Lee, Roly Daniels, Josh Robinson, Tom Bax and Jonny Mousley - many of whom are pictured. Jake Hiscock took to the saddle fourteen times, and rode an Ellen Watson coaches Sherborne House' squad of rhythmic gymnasts and was 'incredibly proud' of the girls performances. Ellen was the ribbon & hoop choreographer for Team GB
incredible 225.60km, the furthest of all of this year’s riders. The group are now celebrating the fact that not only did they completed the challenge by the final whistle, but they also covered 3671.20km and have already raised over £2000 (with Gift Aid) for the two charities through Virgin Money Giving: http://uk.virginmoneygiving. com/team/ SymondiansRugbyCyclothon2014 GOSH’s own bucket collections on the Sunday raised over £10,000, which they believe are linked to and helped by the cyclothon awareness campaign pitch side.
Joe Marchant is captain of the Peter Symonds College 1st XV, an England U18 player, and joint team leader of the [weekend’s event: "The atmosphere was really great. The international players were really supportive of the cause and kept coming over to see how we were doing. Wales captain Sam Warburton amongst others - joined us in the saddle for a while to help us cycle a few extra kilometres. "Aching muscles aside, not bad results for a weekend’s work!” Photos courtesy of current U6 photography student Charlotte Chappell.
