Henley Forest FC Chairman Peter Johnson reports on 2007

We have been working hard through 2007 to continue to develop football in Henley. We now have four junior teams and unprecedented number of senior teams, six in total. The hardest move we made was to enter a team in the Midland Combination League 3 with all its inherent needs. Which has put pressure on our organisation, our finances and the volunteers who we rely on for all sorts of jobs around the club.

However this club continues to be successful with its team performances, the Combination side after a difficult start is holdings its own in what is a very touch league and as I write has won through to two cup semi-finals. All the senior sides currently in the Stratford Alliance League are holding their own, when you consider we have to find enough players for these sides of the quality expected, shows how good the club managers are. This also the first season for our Sunday side who play in the Redditch Combination League, currently sitting mid table and our Vets team which remains unbeaten so far.

The junior section continues to show strong growth & performances, last years Henley Lions, (between 5 & 7 years) have blossomed this year into a very successful U8s team, which is really encouraging. We have also employed fully qualified coaches for the juniors who take training sessions on Thursdays & Sundays.

We have also arranged special games in aid of the Warwickshire Fire Fighters Fund the most notable being a Boxing Day Old Boys Game where £350 was raised.

Despite excellent support from Redditch Volkswagen, our sponsors. It is not all good news despite radically changing how the club is financed we continue to be under pressure as out goings continue to outstrip revenue. The main reason is we are not collecting enough subs or doing enough fund raising. The club still has not overcome the losses that followed its ill-fated trip to the 2006 World Cup. Whilst we have now finished the refurbishment of the changing rooms there is still much to replace and repair. Our next expenditure has to be on the drainage on the both parts of the field and to organise a regular groundsman. The field whilst major work of clearing some of the hedgerows has been undertaken, the space we have available is not used as efficiently as it could.

We would like to thank the TIC for its support & finances when we refurbished the changing rooms. It should be obvious Henley Forest as a very bright future as long as we can balance our books we look forward to growing and providing enjoyment for all those involved.

Peter Johnson.


Fairtrade: Who Cares?

Fairtrade Fortnight 25 Feb.-9 March 08.

LogoFairtrade guarantees a better deal for Third World Producers. With awareness levels of the FAIRTRADE Mark reaching their highest level in 2007 and UK product sales doubling every two years, predicted to be over £450 million in 2007, the Fairtrade Foundation is using Fairtrade Fortnight to increase understanding about how the impact of consumer decisions can help tackle poverty in the developing world. Too many producers the world over remain at the sharp end of international trade, often forced to sell their produce for less than the cost of production. Similarly, too many workers in developing countries endure low wages, insecure working conditions and are often denied the right to join a trade union. Besides lobbying governments to make changes to international trade rules so that they work in favour of the poorest countries, incorporating Fairtrade products in to our daily shopping routine is a way to send a powerful message to industry and eventually force the conventional players to rethink the impact of their business models.

What you can do.

  • To make Fairtrade products more accessible in Henley and the surrounding area please take the opportunity to ask store managers to stock your favourite Fairtrade items e.g. Divine chocolate, orange juice, honey, bananas, wine,cotton T-shirts etc. You can already get Cafedirect coffee and Teadirect tea at our own Somerfield.
  • Visit the Traidcraft stall outside St. John’s church on Friday 29 Feb. 10.30-1.30 for more information about Fair Trade and to buy a selection of Fairtrade products.
  • Watch the award winning documentary, Black Gold, now on DVD, which explores the truth behind the marketing of coffee beans and may shock you into thinking again about the coffee you are drinking!

Consulting on new Homelessness StrategySDC

Having carried out a review of the District’s housing needs and finding out the priorities of local people and partners, Stratford-on-Avon District Council has produced a draft Homelessness Review and Strategy 2008-2011.

This draft Review and Strategy is available for consultation and comment until 25 February 2008. To view the draft Homelessness Review and Strategy, please follow the link: www.stratford.gov.uk/community/community-1681.cfm

“This Council is serious about its responsibilities as a strategic Housing Authority and its approach to addressing homelessness.” says Councillor Gillian Roache, Portfolio Holder for Revenues and Housing. I am determined that this new Homelessness Strategy will be the roadmap to deliver the ambitions of the Council and its partners, which are to refine and improve the District’s approach to homelessness prevention and housing options. Also, and more importantly, to provide practical solutions to the multitude of complex situations in which people find themselves today.”

If you wish to make comments on the draft Strategy, please email Martin Cowan at martin.cowan@stratford-dc.gov.uk or in writing to Martin Cowan, Housing Advice Manager, Stratford-on-Avon District Council, Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 6HX


Lodders  Legal Column - "Unregistered land"

LandI do wish that there was another phrase we could use instead of “unregistered land”. When a client is told that their property is not registered at the Land Registry, it conjures up visions of dodgy cars, disreputable doctors and any other number of illegal situations! The usual reaction of clients will be alarm and concern that they may have broken the law. Unfortunately, some solicitors react in the same way!

Of course, at Lodders we are soon able to reassure our clients that unregistered land is not unusual and certainly not illegal! Compulsory registration did not come into force until 1980-1990 depending on the county concerned, and even then was only triggered by certain events. It was not until 1998 that almost all transactions of land triggered first registration. Although many unregistered sales may complete just as quickly as similar registered sales, there are problems which can arise which are specific to unregistered land, such as missing links in the chain of ownership or plans which do not meet with the Land Registry’s current requirements. However, the most significant cause of delay is that more and more firms of solicitors are unfamiliar with dealing with unregistered land and simply return the paperwork to the solicitor acting in the sale and insist that first registration is carried out before the sale can proceed. This is unnecessary and unacceptable but to keep a transaction flowing, the seller’s solicitor often has little choice but to agree. First registration can take the Land Registry up to 5 or 6 weeks to deal with which can cause considerable problems when what should happen is that registration takes place after completion; the solicitors acting for the buyers should able to investigate the title provided before exchange of contracts and be content that there are no problems.

To avoid any such delays when you sell, and to flush out any problems so that we may deal with the same before you decide to sell the property, it is preferable to apply voluntarily for your property to be registered. There will be legal costs, but the Land Registry fees are reduced for a voluntary registration, for example a property valued at between £200,000 and £500,000 usually incurs a registration fee of £220 but the fee payable on voluntary registration would be £165.

If you would like to know whether your property is in fact registered or unregistered, or if you would like an estimate of the legal costs and Land Registry fees which would be incurred on the voluntary registration of your property, please contact Liz Fairs on 01564 792261 or email liz.fairs@lodders.co.uk.

Henley Forest FC

Match Report v Austin Sports & Social

Cup/League SEMI FINAL CHALLENGE URN – 1ST LEG
Date 9/2/08
Final Score 2-0 AUSTIN
Man of the Match JIM CRAIG / CHRIS KEY

Henley Forest

Forests Jon Grandfield & Neil Jones go for the ball as Ben Adshead looks on
in the hope that it slips from Austin Keepers fingers.

Forest attempts were few and in a nutshell, it was a pretty disappointing display against third in table Austin Sports.

Austin played great football and demonstrated immense skill without doubt a very talented side, yet on a different day Forest are well capable of giving them a run for their money. However, for the 1st leg of this Semi Final, Forest were simply not good enough.

Austin Managed to get two goals past Forests goalkeeper, and unfortunately of the attempts Forest did make down the other end, their keeper prevented them from hitting the back of the net.

Manager John Colby was naturally disappointed and commented of the game: ”Of course I wanted to secure a win for this first leg at home, although it was not to be and to be honest, from pretty early into the game I was concerned. We held them to nil-nil for as long as we could and their performance on the day was better than ours, I don’t agree that they are a better team, but on the day they were and were simply too good for us. We need to learn from this and up our anti for the forthcoming 2nd leg at their ground – I am hoping for better things all round”.

Man of the Match goes jointly to Mid Fielder Chris Key and Centre Half Jim Craig – both delivered a great performance, their effort was commendable.

Next Fixture: 16 Feb 08 – AWAY TO EARLSWOOD TOWN

Grumpy Old Man Comments

GOMTemporary Public Ownership

Well Gordon has done it, what I suspected for some time has happened, Northern Rock is becoming Nationalised.

I could be cynical and invest some cash in a NR savings account, wait for floatation and bag some free shares in something I now own.

But what is my tax money doing? Well the new chairman is on a nice salary….£90,000 a month, yes that’s right a month!. The second in command is on a much reduced package of only £75,000 a month! No worries about the football sponsorship however, Newcastle United had a one off payment some time before ‘Public Ownership’.

Assets and liabilities are now mine, although I’ve heard of plans to reduce the level of mortgages by increasing interest rates for borrowers, and increase the level of deposits. This should make the Rock more viable as a bank.

But how is this going to affect other banks? How will the economy be affected? Why was the Rock just allowed to go under, like other British companies?

I had Marconi shares, they’ve gone. OK I haven’t had a rover car since the 80’s but they’ve gone too.  Why were these allowed to go while the Rock continues to survive?

More questions than answers, sorry for that, but hey lets invest £200 and wait for the free payout … at who’s expense?

World Statistics 2007 !!!

GlobeData shows that 2007 was another very hot year globally, in fact the second warmest since records began.

In the Northern Hemisphere alone, temperatures averaged 15.04oC, making it the hottest since records began in 1880.

The Summer sea-ice extent in the Arctic Ocean shrank by 23% below the previous record set in 2005. This opened the North West passage for the first time in recorded history.

South Eastern Europe suffered with temperatures as high as 45oC, which killed over 500 people.

In Japan temperatures reached 40.9 oC, the highest ever recorded in Japan.

England and Wales experienced widespread flooding, with damages estimated at £3 billion, during the wettest May to July period since records began in 1766.

South Asia experienced the worst flooding in decades, affecting at least 25 million people.

In Africa, 15 countries from Ghana to Ethiopia were affected by severe flooding, which displaced hundreds of thousands of people and seriously damaged food security in the area.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Nobel prize-winning body of more than 1,250 scientists from around the world, released its Fourth Assessment Report, which detailed the likely climatic consequences if we continue to pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. It reported that unabated emissions would result in a temperature rise of between 1.1 and 6.4oC during the 21st century.

To put this in perspective, temperatures over the last 100 years rose by a comparably small 0.74oC, and yet this appears to have already contributed to trends of more heat waves, longer and more intense droughts, higher sea level, more frequent heavy rain, and stronger hurricanes.

With 2008 expected to be another warm year with global temperatures well above the long-term average, urgent action to reduce CO2 emissions is required by all of us.

What action? - “Think Energy”.

Electricity, gas, heating oil, petrol and diesel are all energy.

Ask yourself?

  • If it uses energy can I turn it off?
  • If not can I turn it down?
  • Can I turn it off sooner?
  • Can I turn it on later?
  • Can I use less?
  • Can I enjoy thinking that by doing these things fewer people will be flooded or overheated or lose their crops?

You’ll be surprised how many things you can turn off if you “Think Energy”.
Its easy to reduce CO2 emissions by a ton or two if you “Think Energy”.
