A SPECIAL THANK YOU

We raised  at least £3,500 at the Church Fete this year –  a fantastic achievement.

This would not have been possible without the tireless commitment and organising skills of Monica Lilley, who, as usual, masterminded this year’s fete.

Thank you so much Monica – everyone really appreciated your great efforts.

Grand Gestures

I’m not much given to making grand gestures, so I’d avoided buying one of those white wrist bands. I just didn’t think I needed to announce my views in that way. But all that changed when, the day after the Live8 concert in July, I took my usual Monday morning assembly at Duxford School.

It was, of course, the start of the week of the G8 conference, so the topic for the assembly had to be world debt. I have some Christian Aid material which provides a simple visual introduction to the issue, but before I made the presentation, I got the children’s attention with some personal comments. I had to admit, first of all, that I’d missed the Live8 concert. Then I explained that I hadn’t got a white band (fortunately many of the children had, so I was able to borrow a visual aid). And finally, I told them that I start each day with 20 minutes exercise on a stepper – not to get fit, but to lose weight. In the last few months I’ve put on too many pounds; it always strikes me as strangely ironic that I have to make all this effort to lose weight whilst others starve.

Well, I came away from my school assembly feeling that coyness about gestures was not good enough, and that I should add my voice to the demands for a fairer world … so now (with some embarrassment) I’m wearing a white band too. It says MAKE POVERTY HISTORY.

The personal gestures didn’t stop there. At the end of that same week, Mary retired from the History Department at St Mary’s School in Cambridge. Students and staff marked the occasion with generosity (she’s been on the teaching staff 18 years) and Mary wanted to respond. She considered all sorts of possibilities (a cup or education prize or something for the chapel) but nothing seemed to quite suit.

Until we came to Oxfam Unwrapped. A donation to Oxfam in the school’s name provided basic medicines for a village and lunch for 400 schoolchildren! And that seemed to hit the right note (St Mary’s is a religious foundation). I should add that Mrs Schofield hasn’t quite retired (!) - she returns to the school in August in an administrative role.

The London bombings happened in that same week in July. Like everyone else, I watched the scenes on television and felt the sorrow and the anger at the pointless and violent deaths of more than 50 people. Thank goodness, then, for the measured response of politicians, and faith leaders reminding us of the purpose of terror and urging calm and responsibility in our communities.

Gestures, of course, don’t mean very much on their own, but these events are a challenge to consider how we should respond to the challenge to MAKE POVERTY HISTORY. Obvious suggestions are:

·            Review your current giving to charity (regular monthly payments are much more effective than occasional donations).

·            Buy Fairtrade goods as part of your supermarket shopping (yes – they are more expensive than own brands!).

·            Set up an account with the Charities Aid Foundation.

·            Get involved in a practical way with a local group.

There are of course lots of good reasons not to give, just as there are good reasons not to make grand gestures. But it is the way you and I live and give that will make the difference - it is our individual efforts as much as politicians’ fine words that will, in the end, make the world a fairer place and a better place to live.

FROM THE CHAPEL

Dear Friends,

As I write, the events of last Thursday's explosions in London are still fresh in my mind Most of us have been shocked at what we saw and heard, and for those who were involved and survived, the ordeal must have been terrifying. We knew that a terrorist attack was likely, and that it would probably be in London, and despite our many efforts to put safety measures in place, I feel that we were a 'sitting duck', a target waiting to be hit.

Fortunately, the emergency services were well rehearsed and their plan of action swung into place immediately. Due to the bravery and skill of our fire, police and ambulance crews, many lives were saved which otherwise might have been lost.

What is our response to the situation? Tony Blair said that we should never give in to  terrorism. I found these words from the Bible helpful and comforting,' If someone has done you wrong, do not repay him with a wrong. Try to do what everyone considers to be good. Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody... Do not let evil defeat you: instead, overcome evil with good' (Romans 12:17-18, 21).

Many of us will know people who were in London on Thursday. Our prayers at this time  must be for those who have lost loved ones and for those who are injured, and our gratitude to the emergency services.

In the Old Testament, the arrival of the Messiah, was foretold. When Jesus came, he was not  as the people of that time had imagined. They had imagined a mighty warrior. Jesus came in a humble manner bringing peace. His death was also predicted, and at first glance, the cross at Calvary appears to be a failure and disaster. But through the resurrection and being raised to new life, Jesus gives us the victory! I believe that the way to overcome evil is by love, the love that Jesus came to bring. It is not an easy path to take, it may take time and understanding, but with the example of Britain's religious leaders sharing solidarity in striving to understand one another at a deeper level, I think we are on the way towards building a more peaceful world, one in which we can all live in harmony.

Wherever you travel this summer, for holiday, work or leisure, may you travel safely.

God go with you.                                                                                                         Rev. Hilary Cheng

                                                                                                                                      Methodist Minister

OVER SIXTIES

We had a surprise at our last meeting.  Mr. Hedley Igglesdon had had a birthday and along he came with sandwiches, scones and cakes for us all, which he had prepared himself and to top it all strawberries and cream.  Well done Hedley and thank you very much indeed.

We are sorry George Lilley is not getting on too well just now, but hope he will improve as we miss him at our meetings.                                                                                                         Mrs. R. Lilley

                                                                                                                            

THANK YOU

Thank you to Gail, Julia and family for the lovely party and surprises they gave me.

I would also like to thank everyone who came to my party and for the gifts and cards received from friends and neighbours on my 90th birthday.

It was such a lovely day and having it in Gail and Harold’s garden was just perfect.

MARGARET MARY CLARKE  1923 - 2005

Margaret (nee Patrick) who was born and who died on Mill Road in Cambridge had a very colourful, interesting and fulfilling life. On leaving the County High School for Girls, in Cambridge, she worked for the Cement Marketing Company as a comptometer operator. In November 1942, when she was 19, she joined the WRNS as a Torpedo Wren, becoming a leading wren and recommended to be a Petty Officer as the war ended. After a short interlude in the ‘catering business’ she joined, in February 1946, the Cambridge City Police Force. She was promoted to sergeant in 1954 and was responsible for the Police Women's Department.

In 1955 she applied for the post of Woman Sub-Inspector of Police in Hong Kong. She was successful in her application and arrived in Hong Kong on 16th January 1956. She was the first expat woman police officer and was responsible for all the women police serving in the Force. She served in this force, rising to the rank of Woman Superintendent of Police, until the termination of her contract on marriage. She married Peter Clarke, also an old County School boy, who was serving in the Force, on 16th January 1960. After leaving the Police, Margaret had two sons John and Adam. She remained busy with voluntary work and learnt and became qualified to teach Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging).

She remained in Hong Kong until her husband's retirement in 1985. On returning to the UK Margaret did not 'sit still', she went on to improve her academic qualifications by acquiring a BA degree from the Open University in December 1992, aged 71. She, together with Peter, came to live in Ickleton in 1987. She was no stranger to the village, as years ago she accompanied her father, a butcher, to buy rabbits from the gamekeeper at Hinxton Hall. Margaret took a great interest in village life and was an active member of the Ickleton Parish Church until she entered hospital on 9th December 2004.

 

Thanks from the late Margaret Clarke’s family

Peter and family would like to thank all, in Ickleton, for the visits and kindness shown to Margaret during her long illness.  It was a great comfort to me (Peter).  Following her death, on 16th June,  we would also like to express our thanks for the support given, kindness shown and for many messages of sympathy received.  Special thanks to all who attended the funeral service and for donations received for the Arthur Rank Charity, the hospice where Margaret spent her last few weeks.

 

DUXFORD LAWN TENNIS CLUB

We have been holding coaching sessions for children and adults at the Duxford Tennis Club since 27th April 2005 for the Summer Term with Mike’s Tennis Academy. This year for the first time we have held 5 coaching sessions, starting  4.00 pm for children and 7.00 pm for adults. Below are some comments from the children and adults of Ickleton who are having lessons.

“I last had a tennis lesson at secondary school over 25 years ago and didn't get on with it too well then! Now that my children are starting to be interested in tennis I thought I'd have another go, in the hope that I might be able to knock about with them a bit. I'm never going to be more than a casual player but I've learnt a lot and at least I now know what I ought to be doing. Although I'm in the older children's class by choice it is somewhat embarrassing to be learning alongside 10 year olds who are better than you!”                                                           Mandy - Adult

“This term I have really enjoyed doing tennis with my coach Christian. I have learnt a lot of new      things such as 'upsies', 'downsies' and the 'big nose', which is when you hit the ball and end up with your elbow in front of your nose! This will help me to play a good forehand. I hope that I can be a famous tennis player when I am older.”                                                 Simon Cocks  age 6

“I like tennis because we play rotten eggs and use our rackets a lot.” Kirsten Rugg-Gunn,age 5

“I like tennis because we play scramble.”                                          Dominic Rugg-Gunn, age 6

“I like tennis. We have learnt all the basic moves and rules and I’ve enjoyed playing ‘Champion’ where everyone has to challenge one player and see if they can depose them.  I also play badminton and I have found that this doesn’t mix well with tennis because the way you play shots is very different.”                                                                              Katherine Jeffery age 9

COME HOME 2005

‘Come Homers’ gathered at the recreation field to prepare for a day to remember our childhood and 60 years since the end of WWII  - and what a day it was! It started with a wonderful surprise. Rosemary McKillen and helpers had mentioned a cup of tea on arrival but what a welcome. Tea, cakes and biscuits and kindness that would be difficult to match anywhere. In the morning we visited Hinxton Hall and were welcomed by Mary Mertz (who, being a glutton for punishment, met us again at the fete!). There was so much excitement as we went into the rooms of the Hall that I doubt if Mary could get a word in edgeways!. As we posed for a group photograph (CEN/ SWW) in front of the Hall overlooking the lawns, there were visions of the Americans, ice cream and Old Mother Reilly. Resisting the temptation to see if we were brave enough to see if the mausoleum was still in the grounds, and an assurance from one, who in their youth had been an expert on collecting flowers from the Hall, that it was too late in the season to pick daffodils, we returned to the Lion for a buffet lunch and a drink.

It was obvious that everyone had been looking forward to visiting Caldrees Manor, the scene of the fetes of our childhood days. The talk was of Les Lilley's ‘Wheel of luck’ and Gordon Lilley's donkey rides and how we rolled down the lawns. The hazardous trip, from the recreation ground to the gates of the Manor was accomplished by lookouts and a bearing taken from the barber’s cottage (Pudding Basins with the picture of the Thin Red Line) to the manor gates. Looking up at the large gates and magnificent facade of the Manor with wide eyes we expected a shout from the gardener to tell us to go away (Not quite the words he used to use!). Instead the gates stood open wide and John and Anna Gildersleeve welcomed us to their home. If a picture of true happiness was ever needed here it was. The years rolled away as we  stepped into John and Anna's garden and stood back to let the memories flood in. The  champagne reception that was offered by our hosts was not only generous but necessary  like no other ‘stiff drink’ before, to bring us back to the present. It was truly amazing. "Look there's the fountain," shouted one, and "There's where the lucky wheel stood,"  said another. "Were there ponds in those days—I can't remember?" said someone as the  black swans swam by in formation. "Here's the wood trail" shouted another who seemed  to be searching for something he had lost long ago. One ‘Come Homer’ had a picture of the Manor gardens taken many years ago and we  were able to compare the then and now.  As we walked the gardens under a cloudless sky, the unmistakable sound of a Spitfire  drew our eyes to the treetops. Surely not a flypast to cap the day! The one or two ‘Come  Homers’ who had dropped to the ground with their hands over their heads refused to get  up until someone shouted, "It’s one of ours"!

 Glasses refilled with a farewell drink, our visit came to an end, with a photograph and  words of thanks. The ‘Come Homers’ cannot think of many people who would be as  generous and thoughtful as John and Anna. They are very special people and they made  us feel very special too. The group was a bubble of laughter and joy as we walked back  to the fete.

The rest of the day just flew by, with so many people to catch up with since our last visit. Fred Toombs, who again was asked to open up the New Inn, Henry Burton and Cyril Webb, who could tell more tales about us than any other person now living in the village! Stan Keeble made me go all through the choir practices until I recognised him. Fortunately my wife, who worked with Stan at Hinxton Hall, knew him immediately! We met the Vicar Revd Andrew Schofield who was brave enough to invite us to the Songs of Praise the following Sunday evening. The whole day was rounded off with an evocative flypast from Duxford. It was almost as if those young men who gave their lives in fighters and bombers were at last coming home. If only they could.

 At 6.00 p.m. on Sunday eight ‘Come Homers’ gathered at the Memorial on the Green and placed a wreath ’Remembering all those who gave us the chance of a childhood and a future’ then, entering the church for the first time for many years, we joined the Service of Commemoration. Much had changed in those years. The Choir appeared from behind a door where once behind a curtain the organ was worked by hand pump! May we apologise for being a little late as we were waiting for ‘Nicky’ to turn up and when he did no one recognised him in a suit!. I was given the opportunity to say something of my childhood in the village, which I began as an evacuee, but more importantly I was able to thank the village and its people  for the love, friendship and guidance I and others like me found in Ickleton.

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                   -7-

This years ‘Come Home’  would not be complete without thanks to many. To Monica for  working with us when at times that must have taken courage on her part!   Thanks to  Rosemary and Neil McKillen and family for the tea and the welcome who got very little  thanks at the time because of the many "Oh look who’s here" and "Is that Orricks Webb  and Jean Holdgate" Thanks to Mary and Hinxton Hall for the memories and a very special thanks to John and  Anna Gildersleeve who I doubt will ever realise just how much pleasure they gave us. To  the Parochial Church Council for their kind words of encouragement, to the Vicar for the  Service. Thanks to all the village for your kindness and friendship in welcoming us again  to your village fete.

 The ‘Come Homers’ were pleased to be able to help the fete and the church by  sponsoring the band, the hire of the village hall, and the rosettes from a small grant from  the Home Front Fund.

 64 years ago Ickleton welcomed me, my family and many more people like us who were escaping the effects of war, to the village and their homes. On the 9th July you did the  same again. Sincere thanks for everything. If the village has recovered by then we will see you on 1st July 2006!                                                                                                                Derek Bristow

 

Thanks

Thanks go to Derek Bristow for organising our yearly get together, and to Len Satchell for supplying the marquee.

It was so nice to go round Caldrees Manor and Hinxton Hall, I am sure it brought a few memories back to all.  It did for me - as a boy of 7 years of age,  I was taught, how to shoot a four ten gun by Major Mundy safely.  He was a very kind man to us boys  in those days.  Also thanks  for the lovely buffet lunch supplied by the Ickleton Lion.

We look forward to next year.                                                                                                  Ray Plumb

 

 

ICKLETON CHURCH FETE 2005

After months of planning the day, it again went all too quickly, and even the sun came out in the afternoon.

The sponsoring of the leaflet, which the Parochial Church Council delivered to every house in the village, made a fantastic £275.  Thank you sponsors.

Thank you to the stall holders and their helpers, tea ladies, and everyone who manned the competitions.  Thank you to the Ickleton Society for their exhibition, which as usual was very busy; to Derek Bristow for organising the Come Homers 2005 – Ickleton Village School Reunion and for Derek for helping me with the publicity and arranging a grant from the  Home Front Fund;   and Dick Wombwell and friends for the vintage tractors.  Thanks to everyone for helping in any way.  I also want to mention Rosemary and Neil McKillen for selling raffle tickets, which raised a fantastic £1728. The list of prizes and winners is on the notice board at our Shop.My thanks also much go to  Dilip and Sunita Odedra at Costcutter Express, and the Ickleton Social Club for their help.

Over 300 people came to the fete, so thank you to everyone  for making the day such a success.
