"A Star Is Born," Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable
talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two

“Henley Together” – How did they do?
Four years ago a group of residents got together under the “Henley
Together” banner to try to improve the way the Joint
Parish Council was
being run. They promised to reduce administration costs and make the
Council more inclusive and its dealings more transparent. The group put
up twelve candidates and, remarkably, they were all elected!
councillors elected in May 2015
As their term in office comes to and end and we approach elections for
a new Council, it’s a good time to ask – did they deliver on their
First, and easiest to identify, did they reduce administration costs?
Well, in the four years of the previous Council a total of £173
spent on administration and, on a like for like basis, the “Henley
Together” Council spent £143,004 during its four
years. So, despite
inflation and increases in the Clerk’s salary and pension rates,
current Council has spent £30,596 less on administration than its
On the issue of inclusiveness - I know from personal experience that,
from the point of view of public participation, the previous JPC
meetings were run rather like a strict schoolroom with members of the
public wanting to make a contribution limited to three minutes per
speaker and subject to a barrage of rules and constraints. During the
public participation part of the meeting, dialogue with Councillors was
Under the current JPC members of the public have been encouraged to
speak and allowed enough time to get their point across and where
appropriate receive an answer from Councillors there and then. Members
of the public with relevant information have also been allowed to
contribute during the main meeting. Minutes of the meetings show the
extent and value of this increased opportunity for public input to the
With regard to transparency, in addition to very detailed meeting
minutes the JPC web site itemises every JPC receipt and payment
for the year to date. In fairness, the previous Council also produced
thorough minutes and the financial transactions were also shown, albeit
Where there is the biggest difference perhaps is in the amount of
business conducted in private session – a regular occurrence with
previous Council but hardly ever taking place with the current Council.
So far so good but has it all been plain sailing? Well the Council
spent £3,000 in a failed attempt to get permission to suspend the
Christmas lights across the High Street and controversially increased
the precept by £30 000 to ensure the continued survival of the
Library and the HUB Youth Club and Community Centre after the
withdrawal of support from WCC. This funding more or less fully
supports the Library and meets 50% of the HUB’s costs. This works
at an average of 31p a week per household. This doesn’t
seem much for
the benefit gained - but not all residents agree.
A big plus for the current Council is that they have bitten the bullet
and actually started the process of taking ownership, and therefore
control, of Henley’s car parks and avoided the imminent sale to a
To sum up then – “Henley Together” delivered, by and
large, on its manifesto commitments and has done a good job for Henley.
With only three of the original “Henley Together”
again we must hope that the good work is continued by the incoming JPC.

County Councillor Year End
The Council increased taxes for 2018/19 Financial Year by 2% general
tax and 2% special levy for adult social care. The general
tax rise was the highest allowed by Government before a
requirement to hold a referendum and the 2% special levy was part of a
programme by Government to allow Councils to raise 6% in total over
three years. So far the Council has raised 4% in levy.
The total social care budget, including
children’s social care, adult social care and public health
for 63% of the council’s controllable budget. Highways
for 9% of the budget.
Some highlights for the year were:
A recent survey of residents nationally
identified Warwickshire as top for highway maintenance.
Public Health activity during the year has
been focused on prevention of obesity and stopping smoking.
During the summer holidays the County
provided additional meals for children in receipt of free meals at
school. I expect the same service will be provided in 2019.
A promotion was run on WCC preferred trusted
trader scheme called “No Rogue Traders Here”. To
obtain the name
of a vetted contractor householders should telephone 0800 233 5000.
The Police introduced a new policing model
in July and the Alcester North safer neighbourhood policing team
comprises five officers, a sergeant, a constable and three PCSOs.
Crime, particularly burglaries, has increased last year but seems to be
reducing following a series of arrests for burglaries. For 2019/2020
the Police will be recruiting 100 new officers. Five officers
will be allocated to a new rural crime investigation unit.
WCC is offering confidential support to
people who care for others at home. One in ten people in
Warwickshire ia a carer and help and advice with issues is available by
calling 024 7610 1040 – option 4.

On February 7 the full Council confirmed the
Conservative budget proposals. General Council tax will increase
by 3% and there will be an additional 2% for the Adult Social Care
levy. The Council also accepted that some
million savings will be needed over the next four years. If
all these savings are achieved social care, both adult and
will account for about 65% of the Council budget.
The Police have raised their precept by
10.5%, or £24 per year for a band D property. On the
side the Council has allocated £500,000 County wide to support
community transport services in a move to support isolated communities
and individuals. A further £12.5 million capital is to be
borrowed to fund road safety schemes, waste recycling compactors at the
household waste recycling sites and improved cycle routes.

Forty- five members heard Pablo speak for nearly an hour without notes
about his experiences flying Tornadoes in the first Gulf War in 1991.
He was open and frank about the job they had to do in the region and
came across as both charismatic and sensitive, particularly to the team
who worked with him whilst "on tour".
He left the RAF at the end of 1991 and wrote two books on his
experiences - " Pablo's War " and " Pablo's Travels ". He became a
civilian airline pilot in 1994 when he joined Thomas Cook - a
of Probus members recall Pablo walking down the gangway from the
cockpit to meet passengers - it wouldn't happen today! He retired
from flying in 2007 and now lives in Claverdon, where he still

Aston Cantlow local history society archive exhibition
Aston Cantlow and
District Society celebrated its 25th year milestone with a weekend of
activities. Displays from its extensive Parish archive were on view
in the Medieval Guild room in Aston Cantlow Village Hall over the
weekend 13/14th April. Twelve display panels covering the whole of the
Parish including the villages of Wilmcote in the north, Aston Cantlow
and the hamlets Newnham, Little Alne. Billesley and Shelfield
stretching as far north as Wootton Wawen. It was extremely well
attended with a continual flow of visitors on both days.
There were cries of glee when forgotten happy memories were rekindled
amongst the many albums, scrap books and photos on display. One of the
latest additions of memorabilia items from the Parish, and the focus of
a display on transport from the industrial revolution, is one of the
Aston Cantlow halt oil lamps from the abandoned branch line to
Alcester. It was purchased jointly by the village hall and the local
history society and carefully restored, and now in use as a lamp
electric not oil!
creator of the exhibition Margaret Twigg, pictured right, said she was
delighted with the amount of visitors who visited to the exhibition and
was pleased to receive some new items which were brought in to add to
On Saturday evening a lavish supper was served in the main hall and
enjoyed by members of the society, village hall trustees and friends.
This was followed
by an illustrated talk about the old Wilmcote signal box by Martin
Quatremain and Paul Tilly who restored the lamp gave a presentation on
the history of the lamp and local railways.
The Social History of the Teddy Bear
Society was delighted to welcome Gillian White to give us a fascinating
talk about what every child must have had, the iconic Teddy Bear.
The teddy bear is a fairly modern toy having been around only since the
early part of the 20th century. They were apparently developed
simultaneously by toymakers Morris Michtom in the U.S. and Richard
Steiff in Germany. The name ‘teddy bear’ comes from former
President Theodore Roosevelt, who was commonly known as
originated from an incident on a bear hunting trip to which Roosevelt
had been invited. Most of the other hunters had already killed an
animal so a bear was caught, tied to a tree and Roosevelt invited to
shoot it. He refused to shoot the bear, deeming this unsportsmanlike,
and it became the topic of a famous political cartoon.
Morris Michtom saw the drawing of Roosevelt and was inspired to create
a teddy bear which he put in a shop window with a sign ‘Teddy's
the toys becoming an immediate success. At the same time in Germany,
the Steiff firm, unaware of Michtom's bear, produced a stuffed bear
from Richard Steiff's designs and exhibited it at the Leipzig Toy Fair
in 1903. An order for 3,000 was placed by a New York buyer and within a
few years output had soared. The Steiff company had originally been
founded in 1880 by Richard’s aunt Margarete Steiff, a seamstress.
Steiff factory closed during World War I and this inspired several
British companies to start production of Teddies, including Chad
Valley. Now, though, only one traditional teddy bear company remains,
Merrythought, which was established in 1930. While early teddy bears
were covered in tawny mohair fur, modern teddy bears are manufactured
in a wide variety of commercially available fabrics, most commonly
synthetic fur and many are now washable.
Over the decades, teddy bears have inspired a plethora of characters.
One of the earliest was Rupert Bear who first appeared in the Daily
Express in 1920. The mantle of Rupert’s artist and storyteller
taken over by Alfred Bestall in 1935 and continued by him for the next
30 years. The comic strip is still published daily with many of these
stories later being printed in books, and every year since 1936 a
Rupert annual has also been released, (interestingly, these annuals
appeal more to adults). Subsequently Winnie the Pooh appeared in 1924
created by A.A. Milne as a tale for his son Christopher. Winnie was
apparently named after a Canadian black bear that Milne frequently saw
in London Zoo. The popularity of the toy had also inspired the melody
‘The Teddy Bears' Picnic’ in 1907, with the lyrics added in
Paddington, and Pudsey Bear all became popular creations in the 1950s
but eventually the cult of the Teddy waned only to be given a
restorative boost in the 1980s by the TV series ‘Brideshead
and its character Sebastian Flyte with his teddy Aloysius. Gillian
concluded her talk by reading some lines by John Betjeman and revealing
his constant companion Archibald Ormsby-Gore, better known as Archie,

Henley Forest FC Under 15s Win Mid Warks Cup Final
On Sunday the
7th April Henley Forest FC under 15s played Hillmorton under 15s at
Racing Club Warwick’s ground in the Mid Warwickshire League Cup
controlled the game up until the final 10 minutes, playing really good
football and moving into a 3-0 lead which could have been more but for
a disallowed goal and a saved penalty.
The last 10 minutes proved to be a really tense affair with Hillmorton
pulling back 2 goals to make the score 3-2 going into the last couple
of minutes, but Henley held on to win.
Congratulations to all the lads on what was a well-deserved victory!

Claverdon find the gears at
Claverdon’s Luke Rogers sprints past the opposition
Saturday saw a perfect day for running rugby, a mild breeze and the sun
beaming down on a dry flat pitch.
Claverdon were soon on the score sheet after good interplay between
Alex Holden and John Grey. Finding themselves breaking through the
defence Claverdon were on the front foot. Clean ball allowed the ball
to travel through the hands to find its way to Nick Green put wide who
dotted down within minutes of the whistle. 0-5
Kings Norton sent the restart deep into the Claverdon 22, pilling on
the pressure. Following some disagreements on the floor Alex Haynes and
a KN player both saw yellow. KN pumped the ball into the corner, of the
line out they set up the maul and moved forward. Claverdon managed to
deal with the maul forcing KN to spread the ball wide. Good defence in
the middle from Colin Marklew and Tom Hudson forced the knock on, scrum
Claverdon. After soaking up the pressure Claverdon were able to clear
Ali Norman in the thick of it
up the pressure from KN it was Luke Rogers who got the first of his hat
trick. Another rampaging run weaving through defenders he worked his
way over the line 0-12
With the wind beginning to pick up Williams pinned KN back by kicking
into the corners. A clean line out take from KN was soon disrupted by
the Claverdon defence, after turning the ball over Claverdon worked the
ball tight through the hands and it was Steve Grimsley who took the
final offload to dot down in the corner 0-17.
With 10 minutes left of the half Claverdon knew they needed a 20 point
lead to help with the change in conditions for the second half. Sam
Turrell soon got his hands on the ball, after stepping past a couple of
tackles he put boot to ball. The bounce beating the full back and
Turrell, however it was full back Tom Johnson who collected the ball to
sprint clear. 0-22
With Claverdon now clicking together there was time for one final
score. From a solid Claverdon scrum James Williams’ only pin
through allowed Grey to show his pace and gather to score out wide. 0-27
The half time huddle was buzzing but Barton’s words were to not
get complacent and to turn it up another gear.
Captain James Barton scoring for Claverdon
couldn’t have started any better for Claverdon. Holden gathering
midfield burst through a hole to run 30 metres. With only the full back
to beat a simple inside pass found Barton who finished off the 40m to
score within the minute. 0-32
Kings Norton’s reaction to this early score forced Claverdon to
several penalties. Opting for the line outs KN soon found themselves on
the front foot and in the Claverdon half. Despite solid defence around
the fringes Claverdon were sucked in giving the KN back line an
overlap, putting the ball through the hands KN scored out wide. 5-32
The wind held the restart high in the air, Ali Norman collecting the
high ball. With the defence rushing up high pick a hole and burst
through, running 60m only to be brought down by the fullback 10 metres
out. With the support cleaning up the ball it was Ed Smith who snipped
down the blind side to score in the corner. 5-39
Having stepped off the gas for a split second Claverdon just saw what
KN could do. From the high restart, Joe Turrell gathered the ball, his
dancing footwork put Claverdon back on the front foot. A couple of
forward picks drew in the KN defence, another strong carry saw Rogers
go over for his second. 5-46
Alex Haynes collected the shorter restart and cut back across the park.
Clean ball allowed Smith to push the ball wide and Turrell showed his
pace once again. Pulling the ball back across the field centres Holden
and grey were cutting through the defence. The forwards now kept the
ball tighter to draw the defence in, a strong defensive effort from KN
held the ball up. Claverdon continuing to move forward Rogers managed
to rip the ball away and run in for his hat trick. 5-53
Now with only minutes on the clock Claverdon continued to pile on the
pressure with more strong running from Green, Turrell and Marklew. Now
in the KN 22 and more hard running lines it was Norman’s offload
Barton that allowed the skipper to go over for his second and
Claverdons final score. 60-5
An excellent performance all round from Claverdon showed on the score
board. Claverdon welcome Old Wheats to Ossetts Hole Lane for their
final fixture of the season, it promises to be a corker! Kick off 3:00pm
