KINGS BROMLEY WI OCTOBER MEETING

Our guest speaker for the evening was Kath Reynolds and her topic was ‘Gymslips and Chalkboards’. Kath evoked many memories for older members and she took us on a very entertaining journey back in time.

Kath began with what girls wore to school fifty or so years ago, including the gymslip and other items that were certainly not designed for comfort!

The school playground was the place where children congregated while waiting for the bell at the appropriate time. Formation of orderly queues was the norm, as pupils made their way into the hall for assembly, hymns and prayers. No talking on that occasion. Later in the morning we were reminded of the milk in small bottles which pupils drank warm in summer and freezing in winter.

The classrooms were far more austere than those enjoyed by children today. No fountain pens or biros in those early school days – inkwells and basic pens with broad nibs. Punishment was also somewhat different too. Some of us recalled ‘the ruler’, as well as the cane, although none of us present ever received that particular form of punishment! Lines were clearly remembered though, some of them being particularly long winded.

Kath brought a selection of reading books which many of us recognised. Ladybird books were commonly found for a number of years and of course Enid Blyton books. We fondly remembered comics of the time, the Beano, the Dandy, Bunty, Twinkle. The boys had their own comics, such as The Eagle and Hotspur.

The teaching of mathematics in those days brought its own challenges. Tables were learned and recited until they were second nature. As you progressed through the system you were introduced to logarithms, slide rules – and of course no calculators. History required you to learn famous dates off by heart, many of which members were able to recall today. PT lessons were often held in the playground, whatever the weather.

At the end of your school day, you placed your chair on top of your desk and walked what was often a couple of miles home. Those were the days!

Social time concluded our evening.

Quiz Night and Grand Draw, Saturday 10th November

The Quiz Night and Grand Draw is on Saturday 10th November at 7.00 pm in the Village Hall. Tables are reserved for teams of 4 and tickets priced at £5 per person to include light refreshments. Please contact Gill or Glen Wright on 472622.

Kings Bromley Voluntary Car Share Scheme

Parishioners may not know that there is a scheme in place

Kings Bromley Voluntary Car Share Scheme
Parishioners may not know that there is a scheme in place in the village whereby those without transport can ring a volunteer to see if they are able to transport them to the doctors, dentist, hospital etc. If you would like to know more about this please contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance by calling 07751603031. He will then put you in touch with the local coordinator.
Call for more volunteers.
At present there are around 8 volunteers with a further 3 recruits recently offering their services. More drivers are required. If you feel you have a few hours spare on the odd day then please put you name forward. To give you some idea the service was used last month on around 17 occasions so this is not a large commitment. Again contact the clerk on the number above.

Kings Bromley Gardening Guild

Gardening Guild members enjoyed a return visit by speaker Jeff Bates who came to give advice on Seasonal Gardening, hosting a question and answer session on jobs to do in the garden. Everyone agreed that it had been a difficult year, with a long winter and baking-hot summer, so there were many questions for Jeff to answer!
He arranged his talk under various headings - Trees and shrubs, Perennials, Bedding, baskets and containers, Fruit, Vegetables, the Greenhouse and Lawns - and had lots of good ideas for autumnal planting, cuttings, pruning and dealing with pests and diseases. Members left the meeting with lots of gardening jobs to do!

Closure of Town Hill B5016

There has been much concern over this

There has been much concern over this and the closure of the 812 bus route. The Parish Council has asked Cllr. Julia Jessel, the County Councillor for the Barton Area to see what can be done. This is her reply:

Dear Alan,

Richard Rayson (County Highways Dept.) is meeting with Amey to see if the 6 month period can be shortened and also if at times single file traffic can be allowed with traffic light control. In my temporary absence I have asked him the let the Parish Councils know if any improvements can be achieved.

Also I am waiting to hear back from the MD at Midland Classic regarding possible diversions to the bus route rather than stopping altogether.

Kind regards,

Julia

Wednesday Club

On September 5th we set out on our summer outing to Shrewsbury and our trip was a great success. The weather was good, our first stop was at Dobbies Garden Centre for morning coffee and we then continued to Shrewsbury. We alighted our coach by the river and went to book a trip on the Sabrina for later in the day. Maps of the town and attractions were readily available, there were plenty of places to eat and a super Market Hall open 6 days a week. Some headed to town, others visited the castle and museum or Quarry Park to see The Dingle Garden - a project of the late Percy Thrower when he was head gardener. A very pleasant day was had by all.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday October 3rd at 2.30pm when our speaker Marion Baldwin will talk about “Hats.”

Kings Bromley WI

The meeting in September saw the WI enjoy hearing all about "The Living Churchyard", a talk and slideshow by Ruth Williams.

Ruth enjoys looking around churchyards and doesn't find them morbid. She told us how she joined a historical group and within several years became a judge for the Lichfield Diocese. This role led her to visit a huge area of the district judging churchyards and take some very professional photographs. These she shared with us in the form of a slideshow when we learned about the eco systems and habitats found in a churchyard. Centuries ago the churchyard would have been a social hub for the parish, holding fairs and festivals . The north side of a churchyard was seen as being inhabited by the devil and some would even have a brewhouse and make their own beer to sell at these fairs and festivals. The ladies heard all about the flora and fauna and wildlife to be found in a churchyard.

The ladies congratulated our members Florence Coxon and Margaret Smith for winning the County doubles bowls tournament. They played at Little Stone, and won with a terrific 22-18 for those in the know. Well done ladies, we look forward to seeing the rose bowl trophy . We have the coach booked for our trip in November to see the Calendar Girls play by Gary Barlow " The Girls", and lunch has been arranged at an Italian restaurant before the show. The meeting closed with a raffle and social time and we meet again on 4th October.

Weight Restricted Turns in Kings Bromley Parish

Staffordshire County Council is about to impose, as an 18 month experiment, the following weight restricted turns

Traffic heavier than 7.5 tonnes travelling from the North (from Yoxall) on the A515 will not be able to turn left onto the A513 or into Woodend Lane.
Traffic heavier than 7.5 tonnes travelling from the East along the A513 (from Alrewas) will not be able to turn right onto the A515
Traffic heavier than 7.5 tonnes travelling from the East along Woodend Lane will not be able to turn right onto the A515.

The restrictions will be temporarily removed when traffic is diverted from the A38 due to accidents or roadworks.

As a Parish Council, we always expected that any such orders would exempt farm vehicles or vehicles making local deliveries. This will not be the case.

Parishioners will know that Kings Bromley Parish Council has campaigned for years for weight limits on the A515 and A513.

This proposal will, if enfored properly by the Police, reduce some HGV traffic through the village, but it is not the full weight limit that we wish for and the fact that it applies to farm vehicles and local deliveries and pick ups will, we believe, cause chaos as these vehicles will use country roads and attempt to turn in inappropriate places.

We will monitor the effectiveness of the restrictions and believe that that will be clear after 6 months.

Along with Yoxall and Draycott in the Clay Parish Councils, Kings Bromley Parish Council will now step up its campaign for a weight limit on the A515.

ITV News item on Traffic Through Yoxall

On Wednesday 12th Sept, local ITV news carried the following item:https://youtu.be/gwNiVjwZOlA

This highlights very well the problem that Yoxall have with HGV traffic

Gardening Guild

At the August meeting, the speaker for the evening was Kevin Reynolds whose subject was 'The Devil's Darning Needle - an introduction to Dragonflies'. An expert on bats, Kevin also has a great interest in dragonflies and considers them to be the largest and most spectacular insects in the UK, being supreme flyers and predators. Dragonflies are a very old species, with fossils dating back to more than 200 million years ago showing that the insects used to be much bigger with wing spans up to 3ft across. Kevin showed some wonderful photos, most of which he had taken himself, illustrating the differences between dragonflies and damselflies. The fascinating life cycle of the dragonfly was explained; the insects are voracious carnivores with interesting mating techniques.
The next meeting will take place on 17th October, when Jeff Bates will be hosting a question and answer session on seasonal gardening.

Kings Bromley WI

The WI do not hold a members meeting during August; however that's not say we haven’t been busy. The Village Show did not have the best of summer weather and we sadly lost our pretty pink gazebo in the high wind, yet we still made a grand sum of just over £440. This will fund our outings and events throughout next year. The stall had a variety of cakes, jams and splendid raffle prizes and the stall itself looked spectacular in the traditional bright pink and mauve. The prizes and baked cakes were all donated by WI members and gratefully received. All the raffle prizes have now been collected.

The now traditional cream tea at the Royal Oak was splendid and 15 ladies enjoyed the afternoon with a lovely array of cakes, scones and sandwiches. This year we themed the event in recognition of the suffragettes and celebrated 100 years since women received the vote. Many ladies wore sashes and rosettes in honour of the suffragettes.

The ladies continue to run a craft and social group at the Royal Oak on the 3rd Thursday of the month from approximately 2pm and this is open to all who might like to join in. There is no fee but please bring your own projects and money for refreshments. The next members’ meeting will be at the village hall on 6th September from 7.30pm and if ladies haven't already paid for the "The Girls " in November, £20 for the ticket and coach is now due.

A Happy Summer holidays from all the WI.

Kings Bromley Wednesday Club

On August 1st 34 members of the Wednesday Club enjoyed Cream Tea at Mabel’s. The arrival of scones, cream and jam sparked the inevitable debate over what goes first the cream or the jam?! Cream first or jam first - everyone appeared to enjoy their tea - and the chocolate coated strawberries were lovely. Our thanks to the staff at Mabel’s for a very enjoyable afternoon.

At the end of the afternoon the Chair thanked all those who had helped with the Wednesday Club stall at the Kings Bromley Show and reported that the gazebo had, against all the odds, withstood the strong gusts of wind blowing across the show ground!

Members were reminded that our next meeting on September 5th will be a trip to Shrewsbury and that the coach will depart from The Grange at 9.30am. There will be stop for coffee at Dobbies Garden Centre, Gailey. The coach will leave Shrewsbury at 4.30pm.




A38 roadworks delayed

See below - Kier statement

I just wanted to make you all aware that we have had to defer the upcoming work on the A38 signs. Our previous start date of Monday, 6 August has now moved. We’re currently looking at starting this work Monday, 20 August 2018.
Start of works: Monday, 20 August 2018*
End of works: Friday, 22 September 2018*
Hours of work: 9pm to 6am Monday to Friday
*Please note that all our planned roadworks are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
Detail of works
We’ll be replacing signs that have reached the end of their serviceable life. The new signs will comply with current standards and will improve visibility of the signs, especially at night and in poor weather conditions. Those sign that require illumination will also have new LED lighting units installed, which use less electricity. Replacing the signs will improve this section of the A38 with clearer signing, which will be easier to read.
Traffic restrictions
Work will be done in 3 phases. We’ll be working mainly using lane closures. However road closures will be required on either the northbound or southbound carriageway. The map below shows the 3 diversions that will be in place, as agreed with Staffordshire County Council.
Phase 1
A38 northbound and southbound from Swinfen roundabout to Wood End Lane. This will require 1 northbound road closure and 2 southbound road closures as well as lane closures.
Phase 2
A38 northbound and southbound between Wood End Lane and Alrewas junction. This will require 2 northbound road closures and 1 southbound road closure as well as lane closures.
Phase 3
A38 northbound and southbound between Alrewas junction and Toyota Island. This will require 2 northbound road closures and 2 southbound road closures as well as lane closures.

They were collected from the Rectory by Roger Price in a vintage open-top Morris car and driven in style to the village hall. They were greeted by about 150 villagers who shared afternoon tea with them.

The church choir sang a humorous song about the couple, written especially for the occasion and then Glen Wright, Churchwarden, gave a short tribute thanking Ty for his 19 year’s ministry in the parish. Viv was given a basket of flowers and the couple were presented with a very generous cheque from the parishioners in recognition of his service. Rev Ty then gave a speech of thanks.
