NEWS FROM THE RECTORY

It’s beginning to be possible to imagine the summer.  Even though the weather seems to veer from May back to February and then forward again, everywhere there seems to be the extraordinary beauty and promise of late spring – apple blossom showing last of all of the blossoming trees, the elusive, incense-like smell of wisteria, irises beginning to come into bloom, fields of buttercups, and bluebells, in their glory as I write. In church we’re beginning to think about the patronal festival in July, and the service that will go with it – a ‘Songs of Praise’ where anyone who’d like to can choose a hymn and explain why it’s important to them.  And in the Sunday School the children are turning their curiosity and their compassion outwards to the wider world.  Gordon Woolhouse told them about the work of Traidcraft, and they made the most amazing chocolatey brownies (and some brilliant flapjacks) with the fairly traded goods they had by them.  And we’re planning to support schools in rural Ethiopia through a local charity, the Jean Grove Trust, so as to get some idea of what life is like for these children who battle gallantly with shortages and hardships, with heavy loads of adult responsibility, with hunger and poverty and slender chances.  It gives us some sense of how our own little corner of the world joins up with the whole wide rest of it, which is important. We hope that as we and our children thrive and flourish in the unfolding summer, we can also help other people to thrive a little more in other parts of our beautiful world.                                                                                                                                                                               Rev Dr Jessica Martin

 

DOT BIRD 1914 – 2010

Francis would like to thank everyone for the lovely cards and letters when Dot passed away. Thanks for all the kind offers of help, which was a great comfort at this time.

Also, I would like to thank the girls from Care Plus who cared for Dot so well before she went into Home Close Nursing Home.

Dot passed away 8th May. The service was in West Chapel on 21st May.                                  Francis Bird

 

ARTS AND CRAFTS IN CHURCH

We plan to have an arts and crafts display in the church on the afternoon of the fete. This will include patchwork quilts, paintings by several local artists, photographs, flower arrangements and other craft work, including an extended version of last year’s knitted village!

If you have any art and craft work you would like to display, or appropriate items to sell, please get in touch.  Also please contact us if you know of anyone we should contact to add to the display.

There is another way in which you can help.  We want to draw up a rota of stewards to help us protect exhibits lent to us for the event and we would be grateful for volunteers who could spare half an hour during the afternoon.                                                                          John and Christina Taylor

SILENT AUCTION AT CHURCH FETE

Although we have been offered a few items for this year’s silent auction, PLEASE, PLEASE can we have MORE so that we can make it as successful as last year when, due to your generosity, there were some amazing bargains to be had and the bidding was fast and furious.

So, just to remind you, we are appealing for good quality items – things which you may not be able to use any more, for instance, but which someone else would really like to have.

Please have a hunt round and see what you can find for the auction.

If necessary, we can come and collect your contributions - and it would be helpful to have them before the fête so that we can mark them up with reserve prices.

Thank you very much, in advance, for your support. And thanks again to all of you who made last year’s auction such a success, either by giving us goods or by bidding for them.

Rosemary and Colin Hayes, Durham’s Farmhouse, Butcher’s Hill

VILLAGE  PHOTO

I know of many new families that have moved into the village since the last village photo (which you can see in the meeting room of the village hall).

Everyone who lives in Ickleton is invited.

The plan is simple – you need to phone me and pre-order your photo.  It will be about £20 – then on fete day, 26th June, turn up to the rec at 1.30 p.m. The seating will have been set up for you and it didn’t take long last time – I will deliver your photos shortly afterwards – so bring your best smile!  I need to pre sell 38 photos for the photographer to come free of charge.                            Anne-Marie Hoare

Your fete needs you!

If you want to help at the fete please either make contact directly with a stall holder or contact me (Keena McKillen) as we’ll certainly be able to find you something to do.

 

Fancy being a Sponsor?

We’ve been very lucky to have generous sponsors in previous years and this year the sponsorship will be even more obvious as we’re putting signs on sponsored activities. So, for example, if you want to demonstrate your feelings for a partner why not sponsor the coconut shy with a sign saying ‘Darling, you’re a smasher!’ Alternatively, we can put pictures on the coconuts!

 

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO BRIC-A-BRAC STALL THIS YEAR AND NO FANCY DRESS COMPETITION!

ICKLETON SOCIETY

At the AGM on 5th May, Lawrence Wragg stepped down after 29 years as a member of the Committee.  Lawrence was the Society’s first chairman from 1981 when the Society was formed, primarily to stop the first expansion of Stansted airport, until 1999.  As a token of appreciation for all his work for the Society and for Ickleton over the years, the Society gave Lawrence a gift of wine.  Clare Driver was voted on to the Committee.  We welcome Clare who, we’re sure, will be a great addition to the Committee. 

After the AGM and wine and refreshments, 20 members enjoyed a fascinating talk – or rather a highly compelling rendition – by Mike Petty about the 1947 floods in the Fens.  Mike is, of course, a well known local historian and his telling of those terrible events really brought them to life.  To illustrate his talk, Mike gave us a slide show of dramatic photographs all taken at the time by one man, Walter Martin Lane of Ely, who subsequently donated them to the Cambridgeshire Collection.          Rachel Radford

 

 

Although I have lived in Ickleton most of my life my work took me overseas and to London, making it really difficult for me to take part in many village activities.  Since I happily stopped commuting and started my business in the village Iast year I have been on the lookout for something I could get more involved in to give back something to the village I love.  A chance email from one of my family has led to me becoming the new Committee member for the Ickleton Society. 

The strangest thing is I am not even a member and looking at the list of members I am pretty sure most people reading this are not either.  I was not sure what the Society actually did, so I was really amazed to see that as well as looking after and expanding the village archives including wonderful photos they also act on the behalf of the village in seeking to preserve things by being involved in planning issues such as Hanley Grange, Stansted and Linton Wind Farm.  In addition to this they organise social events and talks of interest with refreshments provided- all either free or at a small cost to the members.  You can keep up to date on the village website http://www.ickletonvillage.co.uk/

Whether you are new to the Village or your family have been here for generations I would urge you to support this society which is preserving the past of the village and looking out for its future. It is really easy to become a member to support the group even if you don’t want to actively take part in things, although I will be trying to tempt you out to some of the socials. I would love to invite those individuals and families who like me have not yet become members to get in touch with Rachel rachel@fern-cott.freeserve.co.uk.  It’s £12 for families and £5 for an individual and really great value.

Call me if you do not have access to the internet but want more information or want me to come round.                                                                                                                      Clare Driver

 

THE CHESTERFORDS, ICKLETON AND HINXTON W.I.

Our May meeting was one of pure nostalgia. We were taken back to the days of our youth with wonderful film clips taken from the days of Bing Crosby, Nelson Eddy, Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Judy Garland,  Doris Day and many more, and we knew the words to the songs!

On July 12th at 2.30 p.m. there will be cream teas in the President Evelyn Lilley’s garden in aid of Marie Curie and W I Funds (open to all).

On June 16th the speaker Enid Ashpole’s subject is Costume Jewellery and Brooch Clips.

The competition is your favourite brooch. Please note this will be held in Great Chesterford Chapel and not in Hinxton as advertised.                                                                                            Cynthia Rule

 

LONDON MOZART PLAYERS

On Sunday 9th May we were lucky enough to have a wonderful trio come to the village and perform a selection of classical music. I went by chance and I am no music buff and have only just recently started listening to Classic FM.  The ladies - Susanna, Judith and Julia - spoke of the instruments (one was over 500 years old and cost more than my house).  They told us about the composers with great passion and played so beautifully.  I am not sure how we manage to get these fantastic performers coming to our little village, but I would encourage anyone to go next time as it was truly a gorgeous afternoon.  It is also amazing value as for £5 we were entertained for two hours by world class musicians, and then had cups of tea and delicious cakes served by Pam, Jos and lots of other volunteers.  Thank you to everyone involved in organising this.                                                                                                           Clare Driver

NEW FROM SAWSTON MEDICAL PRACTICE

Over the past few months the practice has been making a number of changes as part of an ongoing process to improve the service offered to the community.

The priorities for the practice in making these changes include:

1.      Improving urgent access for patients who need to be seen on the day

2.      Managing patients with long-term health conditions to ensure planned care is delivered by the multi-disciplinary team working together with the patient

3.      Making appointments available for patients who wish to book in advance (up to 4 weeks)

4.      Matching patients with the most appropriate clinician in the first instance, so that the clinical resources in the Practice are used effectively

5.      Improving the effectiveness of doctors’ appointments so that an appropriate amount of time can be spent with patients especially on planned follow-up appointments

A key part of the changes has been the introduction of the Rapid Access Clinic to assist with ‘on the day’ appointments for urgent medical problems.  Now that the system has been running for a few months, we have recognised that there are some medical conditions for which an appointment with the Rapid Access Team can be made by our reception team.  For other conditions we have established a system whereby a member of the Rapid Access Team will telephone you to make an initial assessment of your medical condition and, in discussion with you, the most appropriate action will be decided.

In order to assist our reception team in directing your request it can, therefore, be of considerable help if you are able to indicate the general nature of your condition during your initial contact with the surgery.  Our reception staff are fully aware of the importance of patient confidentiality, however, you are not obliged to divulge information if you prefer not to; we will still try our best to offer the most appropriate service.

We hope that the changes to our systems will lead to better access to the most appropriate medical care for all our community; including both rapid access urgent care and more routine consultations which can be booked in advance. We are always pleased to learn of your experience, and any comments about how we may further improve our services can be sent to either Gerard Newnham or Jenny Parker.  Alternatively we have a comments box in reception.           The Doctors at Sawston Medical Practice

GT. CHESTERFORD AND DISTRICT GARDENING SOCIETY

The meeting held on 5th May was well attended and enjoyed. The speaker George Thorpe, Head Gardener at Trinity College, Cambridge, took us on a tour of famous Chinese gardens he had visited, showing how they used unusual shaped rocks as part of their garden architecture, as well as the pagodas.  The use of flowers all familiar to us was a surprise!

AN HOUR OF CONCERT SERIES

The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge - Saturday 26th June, St John’s Church, Duxford.

This is an exciting opportunity to see and hear this world famous choir in the beautiful surroundings of St John’s Church, Duxford. Three years ago this wonderful choir enthralled a packed St John’s with an hour of choral music on a summer evening, and we are lucky to have that opportunity again this summer. 

The Choir has a worldwide reputation. As well as its primary task of leading chapel services, Clare College Choir gives frequent concerts, both in the United Kingdom and abroad. It has toured throughout Western and Eastern Europe, the United States of America, Russia, and the Middle and Far East, frequently performs in Britain’s major concert halls with many of the UK’s leading orchestras, and regularly contributes to the Choral Evensong broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. Under the direction of Timothy Brown it has become world-renowned for the range and flexibility of its choral sound, and for its broad repertoire.

In 2000 it became the first mixed-voice choir from Cambridge or Oxford to perform at the BBC Proms, singing Bach’s St John Passion, and made a further appearance at the Proms in 2003, in a performance of Berlioz’s L’Enfance du Christ with the Monteverdi Choir. In July 2009, the choir was one of the choirs performing in a BBC Proms concert to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the founding of Cambridge University. Last December, it performed in a gala celebration of the same milestone, at Gotham Hall, on Broadway, New York City.

Timothy Brown has been Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge, since 1979. He began his musical career as a chorister at Westminster Abbey, became a member of King's College Choir, Cambridge, under the legendary Sir David Willcocks, and spent some years as a professional counter-tenor, including a spell as a founding member of The Scholars Vocal Ensemble. His work with the choir of Clare College, Cambridge, and with his professional chorus English Voices (of which he is the founder/director) has earned him an international reputation as a choral director, renowned both for his attention to technical detail and for the breadth of his musical interpretations. This concert at St John’s Church, Duxford will be among Tim’s last with the choir in the UK, after 31 years as Director of Music. Classic FM has said of him, “The sweeping energy and rich detail of Tim Brown’s interpretation draw out the best from his young singers”.

The concert begins at 7.00 p.m. and the bar will be open from 6.15 p.m. Tickets (£8, children under 12 free) can be bought from the Duxford Post Office, Jill Steinberg (01223 833202), Jenny Marks (01223 837337 and Clare Delderfield (01223 837742. Proceeds will be given to St Peter’s Church.

The Chairman welcomed our speakers Andrew Shepperd (who gave a talk on the village website) and Ann Gardner (who spoke about the 50th Anniversary of Duxford C of E Community Primary School).  Twenty residents and our County and District Councillors attended the meeting, along with a short visit from the Police.

Residents raised the following items:

The Chairman gave his annual report which can be found on the website.

The Chairman paid tribute to his predecessor Robin Driver, who had stepped down from the Parish Council last week.  He has put in many years of service as a Councillor at both the District and County levels, and became a leading player on the local political stage.  He was able to give the Parish Council the bigger picture, and to put all of his considerable experience at our disposal.  He will be sorely missed.  The Parish Council would like to thank Robin for his substantial and prolonged service to our community and wider area, and wish him all the best for the future.

 

Vacancy for Parish Councillor – As required by law, a notice of casual vacancy has been displayed on the village notice board.  If a by-election is not called by 10th June, the Parish Council will be seeking to co-opt someone to sit on the Parish Council.  People interested in being co-opted should contact the Parish Clerk or the Chairman.  You need to be aware that next year there will be an election of the whole of the Parish Council.                                                                Jocelyn Flitton – Parish Clerk                                                                                                                                                                       josflitton@tiscali.co.uk
