Youth Club Members Build "Youth Shelter"

In November last year, a group of young people, meeting at the Youth Club, decided that it would be great if they could have somewhere safe to “hang out” when the youth club was closed. They chose to put a shelter next to the existing skate park. They were told of the Youth Opportunities Fund, which is money held by Warwickshire County Council for young people only. They put their plans together and, with the help of the youth leaders, sent them off.

A panel of teenage representatives from throughout the county look at the projects sent in by many young people from all around the county and with advice from a youth officer from the county allocates funds. Henley was lucky; an award of £5,900 was made. This was not quite enough to purchase and install a shelter and bench that would stand up to the inevitable wear and tear that such a facility would receive.

The club decided to carry out the preparation work themselves. On Monday this week, working with Peter Crathorne, the chair of the Youth and Community Centre’s Management Committee, two valiant and resilient youth club members worked through the rain to dig out the foundations. Playworld, the company who designed and installed the skate park will come in and complete the work in the next few weeks. Their Sales Manager said,” Our company is very keen to work with communities to improve provision.” Playworld representatives were present to show the team how and where to dig out the ground ready for the foundations to be laid.

This is a great example of young people helping themselves and others, bringing benefit to the whole town.

Congratulations to everyone involved.

Report prepared by Peter Crathorne.


Henley in Bloom AGM and Dinner

On Friday 9th February, Henley in Bloom had its AGM. As the chairman of it I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the members and public who attended this annual event. It is good to see that we have so many supporters and helpers. Thank you all for coming.

Besides other matters arising I was re elected as Chairman of Henley in Bloom with Margrit Johnson as Secretary and John Love as Treasurer. The committee was re-elected en block.

Last years display received many compliments especially as the weather was so hot. Our efforts were publicised in several articles for various publications. It is good to get such positive feedback even though the articles have not always been correct.

We welcomed the return of the fire engine to water the plants and our first job was to plant the Market Cross for Easter, which was well worth the extra effort. The welcome signs to the town had extra planting space provided and I have to add they were NOT sponsored, like some of you may have thought. Some of the wooden thoughts around the Market Cross had to be also replaced and when planted made the expenditure worthwhile.

Unfortunately, we did experience several cases of vandalism last year, which meant we had to replace several containers. We have had reported ALL cases to Crimestoppers and the Police and will do so as well in the future.

Our thanks must also go to the residents of Henley who supported us privately and at our street collection and cake stall, which we will do again this year. Many Henley businesses also supported our cause. Particular thanks go to those people who watered the plants outside their houses and businesses during the watering season.

We still need more volunteers/helpers so if anyone knows anyone who has an hour or two to spare they will be most welcome. It does not matter what age you are, male or female, to join our fantastic friendly team. No knowledge of plants or gardening is necessary and just an occasional help is very valuable.

Give us a ring to our Secretary on 793903 or email chris@schulte.net.

After the meeting, we had our annual meal with our volunteers which also were attended this year by the Low Bailiff Roger Sutton and his wife Molly.

Thank to everyone who helped with Henley In Bloom last year, in whatever capacity and I am looking forward to seeing you all this year with our new colour scheme red and yellow.

Christian Schulte - Chairman


Change Today, Choose FAIRTRADE

Fairtrade Fortnight 26 Feb. – 11 March

The Henley Fairtrade group is taking part in the national Fairtrade Fortnight promotional campaign during the above dates. The aim is to challenge people to make small changes to their product choices in favour of Fairtrade goods in supermarkets and elsewhere. By simply making changes in the way we act as consumers we can allow other people to make changes towards a better way of life. If enough of us make a change in our shopping habits, a community in Africa, Asia, or Latin America can build more classrooms, employ a part - time nurse or construct a road so they can get their produce to market. While we enjoy foodstuffs and other products from the developing world, we should make sure producers are making a sustainable living.

On Wednesdays 28 February and 7 March, there will be a Fairtrade publicity and produce stall in St. John’s church porch from 11am. – 2pm. Also during the fortnight, local businesses will receive a leaflet encouraging them to offer Fairtrade products to their staff, clients and visitors.

We are glad that Henley Somerfield is now stocking Cafedirect instant coffee. Please take advantage of this opportunity to purchase a Fairtrade product locally.

Moving Down Under

The number of Midlands people emigrating to Australia and New Zealand has doubled over the last decade. The region is now near the top of areas in the UK for emigration Down Under with 36,000 people leaving in 2004 compared with 24,000 in 1995.

Up to 200 people were expected to attend seminars at Kenilworth, in Warwickshire to find out how they can make the move. Organisers said the skills shortage in Australia makes emigration attractive.

Louise Di Dato from Rugby, who went to one of the seminars, said emigrating was very tempting. "Australia seems to be growing and the quality of life for families seems to be more important," she said.

Seminar organiser Paul Arthur, from Emigration Group, said: "Australia and New Zealand are in desperate need for skilled people. The Australian Government is stepping up its efforts to attract skilled workers from abroad to fill an estimated 99,600 job vacancies."


Henley Wildlife Society

Henley Wildlife Society were entertained last Tuesday by Derek Walton, pictured right, from Stratford-upon-Avon with a very interesting talk called 'Wild about a Garden'.

Derek's photos were collected over the last few years with photos of all the flowers, insects, animals and birds appearing in his garden.

A very good selection which were thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Derek was thanked by chairman David Evason in the usual manner.

The fight against Leukaemia to the ends of the earth

On Thursday 15th March 2007 Kay White of Halesowen will be joined by Ashes hero Ashley Giles (Warwickshire and England Cricketer) and Geoff Thomas (Former Wolves, Crystal Palace and England Footballer) to launch the start of her 2007 fundraising campaign at the Cotton Club, Arcadian Centre, Hurst Street, Birmingham.

This year Kay will lead three groups of trekkers on 3 different once-in-a-lifetime challenges. March will see her travelling across the frozen wilderness of Sweden on a dog sledding expedition, then in July she will be leading a trek to climb the summit of the world’s largest volcano – Kilimanjaro and finally in October she will lead another group to climb Base Camp Everest.

In 2006 Kay raised nearly £100,000 for charity by attempting the world record to be the fastest woman to have ever trekked the North Pole, she also led groups to the Sahara Desert and climbed Kilimanjaro twice in 3 weeks.

Kay raises money for her chosen charity Cure Leukaemia which funds the new centre of excellence at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham which provides world class research as well as offers help and support to patients living with leukaemia across the Midlands region. The Centre is dedicated to developing new and more effective drug and transplant treatments for patients with leukaemia and allied blood disorders. In 2006 alone the charity gave £200,000 to the centre to fund it’s clinical research and patient care programmes.

Kay has seen the effects that leukaemia and its treatments can have on a family member as well as a close friend and it is this fact that drives her forward into raising as much money as possible to tackle the disease and support the new centre where both her friend and family member are treated.

If you wish to join Kay at the Cotton Club and hear about her adventures tickets cost £15.00 per person to include a complimentary drink, entertainment and canapés. Or if you would be interested in joining Kay on any of her treks please contact

Hayley Dunn on 0121 627 5858 or email

Beaudesert and Henley-in-Arden Joint Parish Council

At the Joint Parish Council Meeting on Monday 19th February 2007 Members discussed three planning applications received (all in respect of trees or trees subject to preservation orders) and 13 items of correspondence and other matters for consideration, as well as its normal procedural business before the meeting concluded.

1. Footway and Carriageway Maintenance.
Members discussed a letter from Warwickshire County Council regarding footway and carriageway maintenance on the High Street. In respect of footways they were disappointed to learn that, as a result of inspection, no major scheme of works was planned in the new financial year, and that only localised defects were to be addressed in late March or early April. Furthermore there were no current proposals for large scale carriageway surfacing of the High Street, despite growing concern expressed by Members as to the state of the highway. Members agreed to invite the Area Manager from County Highways to a site visit so as to raise the issue of footway maintenance as well as the quality of the surface on this very busy stretch of road.

2. Amendments to the Model Code of Conduct for Local Authority Members
Members considered the Consultation on Amendments to the Model Code of Conduct for Local Authority Members. The amendments to the model code of conduct were intended to make the code clearer and more proportionate, whilst maintaining a rigorous approach to the identification of serious misconduct. Members agreed, however, that the code still lacked clarity even after the proposed amendments, and that there were particular difficulties over declaration of prejudicial and personal interests for Parish Councillors who were also District or County Councillors.

The next meeting of the Joint Parish Council is scheduled for Monday 5th March 2007. Meetings take place in the Baptist Church Hall, High Street, Henley-in-Arden from 7.15pm and, as with all meetings of the Council, members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Manor of Henley-in-Arden

Court Leet and Court Baron

Court Circular

Published by Authority of the High Bailiff

The Low Bailiff, Roger Sutton (left) deputised for the High Bailiff at Henley in Bloom’s dinner on 9 February. He had the opportunity to congratulate the Henley in Bloom Committee and its many supporters for the huge impact which the floral displays had on the town.

On the same occasion, Parish Councillor John Love, treasurer of Henley-in Bloom, was congratulated on his long service to the town in this and many other ways. John’s business, the Vanity Box – so well known that it is frequently used as a landmark – opened 50 years ago.

Henley in Bloom is typical of the many groups of people who apply themselves to the well-being of the town and its residents, for no reward other than that of a job well done. For a town of just 4,000 inhabitants Henley has a very strong identity in the minds of folk from elsewhere. There are about 40 societies and special interest groups in the town and between them they keep Henley alive and stop it becoming a dull, characterless dormitory town. We are grateful to them all.

For the Court Leet, good news for the Court Leet Day on 9th June is that the High Bailiff has had an enthusiastic expression of support from the Community Arts Centre at the High School. We hope to see some street theatre, and lots of colour, on the day. Plans are evolving.

The Nigel Hastilow Column

Tie a blue-green ribbon round the old oak tree

Nigel Hastilow I’m sorry but I don’t care about whether the Tories swap rosettes for ribbons. It’s pointlessly politically-correct but that’s the way the party is these days. I think they’re wrong to change things just for the sake of it – but then I’m a Conservative. I seek to conserve. I somewhat doubt if the old Etonian spliff-smokers now in charge of the party have the same attitude. Their view is that the party must change or die. They may be right. Though it would be nice if they had a few policy ideas of their own rather than nicking all Tony Blair’s.

Anyway, there’s more to change than a new oak tree logo or a ribbon resembling a gay pride march. There’s alienating traditional supporters as well. That’s a pretty high priority for the effete “high” (man) command. Take the comments of Sir Tim Rice, for instance. As he says, "it has finally dawned on me that my relationship with the Conservative party has irrevocably changed. Dave and his young, dynamic, thrusting team are simply not interested in me or my Neanderthal views. They couldn't give a stuff what I think”.

You’re so right, Sir Tim. Or put it another way. Look at the comments of Nick Bourne, the Tory leader in the Welsh Assembly. He, like his glorious leader, is delighted by every attack from the right-wing of the party. Because every time someone like Edward Leigh or Norman Tebbit complains they are being alienated, it proves how far the party has gone under the old Etonians. "I think it demonstrates that the party is changing, so to that extent it is helpful,” says Tory Boyo.

The more the Cameroons alienate traditional supporters the better, it seems. Admittedly there is a modest danger that some of these people will become so disillusioned they give up political activism altogether or – worse – go off to join UKIP. One disgruntled ex-Parliamentary candidate told me that is exactly what he planned to do faced with the politically-correct, jobs-for-the-girls A-list of parliamentary candidates (somewhat modified now most of the best seats have been allocated). Still, what does that matter if the voters come flocking over from the Labour and Liberal parties? Especially as there will never be a shortage of cannon fodder to fill the seats in Parliamentary and local elections.

After all, the party is on the up and up so people who, a decade or more ago, would have looked to “new” Labour to fulfil their political ambitions now regard the Conservatives as the better bet instead. In a conviction-free, policy-lite political arena there’s no reason to discriminate between Tory and Labour if you’re an ambitious young thing. You choose purely on the basis of which party is more likely to deliver. At the moment the odds are in Dave’s favour. It seems as if the Conservatives are in the ascendancy. Dumping the “nasty party” tendency is all part of the success story – even if they were the backbone of the organisation for 30 years. Sadly they are now old, dead or dying, reactionary, set in their ways – indeed, conservative. And they must be discarded along with their flaming torches and their blue rosettes.

One curious manifestation of this new-look Camerooning is the decision to discard Sir Patrick Cormack by his South Staffordshire constituency activists. “Well, it serves him right for being rude to his association for the past 30 years,” was one comment I heard the other day (24 hours before he was dumped). The theory is it serves the old codger right for being too pompous and, indeed, it seems when he was first summoned to seek his re-adoption he told them he was too busy to attend their meeting – a poor start to a fight-back by anyone’s standards.

Even so, traditional Conservative associations would have permitted their MP to carry on as long as he chose to do so (no matter how ineffectual he may have been). Clearly this is no longer the case in the dynamic, thrusting environment of Dave and the Pot-heads. Whether Sir Patrick fights back or gives in with good grace remains to be seen. But in the meantime the vultures are circling over his safe seat. One potential candidate has already been slapped down by the party hierarchy for licking his lips at the prospect of getting selected for the constituency which, as Sir Patrick repeatedly says, scored the biggest swing to the Conservatives at the last General Election.

Premature or not, it is a sign that the old Sir Bufton Tuftons of Torydom had better look to their laurels. They might preserve their seats if they come out as openly gay. They could probably hang on if they go for a sex change. They might make it if they reveal their African roots. Otherwise they are eminently disposable. The young old Etonians are bored with sharing the opposition benches with their own sort. They want women and BMEs and gays or preferably the whole lot in one package. They have pulled up the drawbridge. No matter what services may have been rendered to the party in the past, if you’re Sir Patrick Cormack or his ilk, you are not wanted on voyage.

Too old. Too old Tory. Too old school. Too old. For the New Conservatives, the future is bright, the future is bluey-green.

But as Karl Marx so wisely said: “There is no change without sacrifice.” It’s just tough luck if, like Sir Patrick Cormack, you happen to be one of the sacrifices.

Grumpy Old Man Comments

Results of the Village Survey

The results of the residents survey conducted by George Atkinson, have arrived.

Well 35% of households have responded with answers. Well done the 35%!

But what happened to the other 65%? They obviously don’t care. Come on everyone, George has shown us local politics does listen to us the Public, and we do have a chance for a say, if we could be bothered.

But that a true reflection of the UK’s attitude towards politics. The turn out on election days varies between 29% and 42% approx. So is 35% for the survey adequate? It’s going to have to be.

So it looks like some of the residents want something at the junction of New Rd and Brook End Drive, and some don’t. So all we do now is leave it in Georges capable hands to get something done at Council level. Could we do more ? I think so, we could ask if the traffic lights sequence can be looked at as well as the keep clear box.

Regards

Grumpy Old Man

You Get The Biggest Hit

on energy consumption by turning down the thermostat a degree or two and wearing an extra jumper etc. Turning down by 1 degree saves about 10% on your heating bills and the same amount on your home heating carbon dioxide emissions.

Normally, rooms at 19 degrees C are OK to sit in if you’re under sixty. If over sixty or infirm, 21 degrees C is recommended. In spare rooms that are not being used, turn radiators to a low setting. Babies and young children should not have bedrooms above 19 degrees C. Bedrooms generally need no more than 18 degrees.

To check the temperature, various types of thermometer are available. Look out for cardboard ones in which the numbers glow to indicate temperature. These are good because they don’t break when you drop them.

They are especially useful in rooms with thermostatic radiator valves since the valves don’t normally have temperature numbers on them.
