Councillor Marika Hillson invites you to join her on Saturday 11th July at Irthlingborough’s Frontier Centre for musical entertainment and supper, to raise money for her two chosen charities. Funds raised during her civic year will be shared between the Royal British Legion – in memory of Brian Walker (former Chairman of Finedon, Irthlingborough and District RBL) and Skylark Children’s Ward at Kettering General Hospital. Councillor Hillson said: “This will be a very special event with a menu that’s hard to resist. For starters we’ll have well-known military anthems played by the fabulous Thrapston Town Brass Band, followed by a fish and chip supper from Vince’s Fish Bar. This will be washed down with our talented Irthlingborough based Michelle Randles dancers who will perform to classic Glenn Miller tunes. For dessert we will finish with a glorious singsong of popular wartime hits. As a tasty side dish we will have a well-known local artist, Keith Hill, and a historic WWII exhibition. “Flag waving, loud singing and having a good time will be compulsory on the night so join us for a fabulous time to raise funds for RAF WW2 aircraft equipment for the Skylark Children’s Ward and for the Royal British Legion in memory of Brian Walker. I look forward to seeing you all there.” The evening also includes a licensed bar and a raffle draw. Tickets are £20 per person. The dress code is smart casual or 1940s costume (Allied forces Genealogy jottings A very good friend of mine has a family reunion this year. This is to celebrate a whole raft of 18th, 21st and 50th birthdays as well as special wedding anniversaries. Reunions are great places to ask those burning questions: Who was it that Great Aunt Nell married? What was Uncle Reg’s occupation during the last war? When did cousin Dave emigrate? When I was small, we used to trek from Hertfordshire down to Surrey once a year to meet up with cousins, great aunts and uncles and other motley relatives in order to catch up with family happenings. If you do not have family reunions as such, organising visits and asking nosy questions is the way to go. Get your relatives talking about what life was like when they were young. Do they remember any special events such as coronations, for instance? Sometimes, it just takes a couple of questions to get relatives reminiscing and from there you will have a very good base for building your family tree. Don’t forget to Steven North re-elected as East Northamptonshire Council leader The Foot Clinic Councillor Steven North was re-elected as Leader of East Northamptonshire Council at its annual meeting on Wednesday 27th May. He is also leader of the ruling Conservative group and a member for Rushden Sartoris ward. Councillor North said: “East Northamptonshire is a great district and I am delighted to once again have the opportunity to lead councillors, officers and our partners in providing the best service for our communities. “Our commitment to regeneration and economic development remains steadfast and we all look forward to seeing Rushden Lakes and Wharf Park develop into sites that ensure continued prosperity for the district. “We will prioritise more mixed use development, to encourage thriving towns and villages across East Northamptonshire. This will include a new village at Deenethorpe, which will deliver high quality housing on a disused airfield. “This term will also see the completion of the Four Towns Plan, the start of a review of the RNOT plan and an increase in the number of Neighbourhood Plans being developed across the district. “I’m confident that together we can ensure stability for the council and a bright future for the district.” The recent election saw 37 Conservatives, one Labour and two Independent councillors form East Northamptonshire Council. or civilian) and Mayoral chains. Guests are asked to arrive at 7pm for a 7.30pm start at the Frontier Centre, Sports Hall, Addington Road, Irthlingborough, NN9 5UH.

Remember what I said about an ancestor committing suicide? My dad remembered the story as one thing but, upon investigation it turned out that the facts did not quite fit. However, it did give me a good starting point. If you have started your family history, see if you can set it out into a tree so that people can see who was related to whom – it might also trigger memories. You may find that people lived in different towns or villages in addition to where you thought, or you might get an insight into their schooldays – very different to nowadays! Oh yes – before you meet up, it is also worth asking if there are any old photographs that you could see that have been squirrelled away. Then, as you sit over a cup of tea/glass of wine, the pictures will evoke a time gone by and help those recollections take on more meaning. Get talking – and listening!

The application to Sport England was part of a wider plan to develop cycling provision at the school, building on the existing Bikeability scheme hosted by Manor School for the Wellingborough and East Northants District. The project aims to increase participation in cycling by running a Go Ride School Coaching programme for Years 7–12, with a particular focus on encouraging girls. Three members of staff have already completed a Cycling for Schools training course to lead the development of cycling in the curriculum. School Sport Manager Hannah Hore, who led on the application to Sport England said: “It is brilliant news for Manor School. Cycling in Northamptonshire has really taken off since London 2012 and the Women’s Tour of Britain last year raised the profile of the sport further locally. I’m looking forward to seeing the development of the Go Ride Club and maximising a unique opportunity for all students at Manor and hopefully surrounding schools.” Manor School will also host the District School Games Cycling Competition on Tuesday 9th June for boys and girls in Year 7. Young leaders studying GCSE PE at Manor School have already been trained to support the delivery of the competition. In addition, a team from Manor School has been invited to take part in the ‘Queen of the Sprints Race’ for schools, to mark the Women’s Tour of Britain coming to Kettering on Friday 19th June. The Sport England Award from the Small Grants programme, which is Lottery funded, will support the cost of purchasing 25 mountain bikes, helmets and a trailer to transport bikes. Initial coaching fees and costs for a teacher or coach to complete the British Cycling Level 2 Coaching Award have also been included in overall project costs. School Principal Linda Brooks said: “I am delighted that Manor School is at the forefront of this new cycling initiative. I look forward to the programme increasing even further our sports participation rates.” Manor School Go Ride cycling club Join the Chicken Challenge to halve cases of campylobacter poisoning Let’s hear it for the humble chicken. It’s a healthy and versatile food and a staple of Sunday lunches and barbecues on sunny afternoons. But there’s one thing not to love about it. Chicken can cause food poisoning. The FSA estimates that about 280,000 cases of food poisoning a year can be traced to campylobacter – a germ found mostly on raw chicken. You can’t see it, smell it or even taste it on food, but if it affects you, you won’t forget it. At its worst, campylobacter can kill or paralyse you. Campylobacter food poisoning usually develops a few days after eating contaminated food and leads to symptoms that include abdominal pain, severe diarrhoea and, sometimes, vomiting. Some can have lasting effects, for example irritable bowel syndrome, reactive arthritis and in rare cases Guillain- Barré syndrome – a serious condition of the nervous system. The FSA wants to cut the number of cases of campylobacter poisoning in half by the end of 2015. It could mean that over 100,000 fewer people will get sick next year. If everyone does their bit, including industry and consumers this can happen. Pledging to take the Chicken Challenge and to do at least one thing to help keep tummies safe and healthy will make a huge difference in helping to achieve this goal. Nina Purcell, FSA Director says: “It’s clear that we all love chicken, we just need to take the time and be even more committed to ensuring we do the little things in the kitchen to keep our loved ones safe.” Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Steven North, says: “Food safety involves everybody in the food chain. If we all take responsibility for ensuring we follow the simple rules, then we can all enjoy a safe and delicious dinner.” The FSA is asking you to step up to the plate and promise to: •Bag and store raw chicken separately from other food, covered and chilled on the bottom shelf of the fridge •Not to wash raw chicken as it splashes germs •Wash everything that’s touched raw chicken in soap and hot water – your hands and utensils •Check chicken is cooked properly – no pink meat, steaming hot and the juices run clear To take the pledge and for the chance to win some fantastic prizes visit www.food.gov.uk/chickenchallenge Visit your local NEW RECRUITMENT AGENCY IN TOWN!

Beginning in December last year, the refurbishment has transformed the four former bedsits into two spacious one-bedroom bungalows that are specially equipped for older people. Located on Wellingborough Road, the almshouses had previously undergone a refurbishment in the 1950s but were in need of extensive work inside and out. The work has seen both the internal and external parts of the buildings completely revamped, whilst the properties’ unique characteristics and period charm have been maintained. The refurbishment has ensured the bungalows are specially equipped to make life easy for their older residents. On top of installing brand new kitchens, extra insulation, new roofs and doors, to bring the almshouses up to a high quality, residents will also benefit from having wet rooms instead of bathrooms, significantly improving and all steps, both inside and them for residents,” said outside of the properties, John Farrar, Chairman of have been removed to Spire Homes. “They are a reduce the risk of trips and fantastic example of how falls.

We’re delighted with the results achieved by Spire Homes, Longhurst Group and RG Gill & Son.

Resident fined hundreds for fly-tipping A Ringstead resident was fined nearly £600 at Northampton Magistrates Court recently for fly-tipping in East Northamptonshire. The man pleaded guilty to the offence of dumping three sacks of waste on the roadside between Woodford Mill and Great Addington. The Magistrate said he had committed a serious offence which caused considerable cost to the taxpayer and ordered him to pay £595 – made up of a £75 fine, costs of £500 and a £20 victim surcharge. Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council said: “We are pleased with this successful prosecution and hope it shows how seriously we take fly-tipping in East Northants. We will continue to take action against individuals found to be illegally dumping rubbish in our countryside and on our streets. We think this sends out a strong message that this kind of behaviour will simply not be tolerated.” Northamptonshire County Council runs the Rushden Household Waste Recycling Centre, which allows you to recycle or dispose of waste materials responsibly. For opening times and to find out what items the centre accepts, visit www.northamptonshire.gov.uk and search for HWRC or call 0300 126 1000.

Team Phoenix, comprising seven of its students aged 12 to 15 years, are the only students in the country who have been invited to attend the National Food Poverty Conference on 18th June in recognition of the extraordinary volunteering they do. Jo Steele, Admin Officer at Rushden Academy who was the original inspiration for Team Phoenix, said: “Delegates at The National Food Poverty conference will be part of a select few who will help identify strategies to combat food poverty Team Phoenix at Rushden Academy (2) May 2015 – The Education Fellowship – credit Ash Mills just six weeks after the new government has been elected. It’s tremendous that Team Phoenix will be at the heart of where key decisions are made and they may be able to influence policies and legislation towards reducing food poverty. “These youngsters selflessly give up every Saturday, plus days in the school holidays, to work in the Food Hub at the local charity Phoenix Resource Centre in Wellingborough. “Each week between them they sort through an average of two tonnes of food which is enough to feed a family of four for a year. Donated by the distribution centres of supermarkets, this usable and in date food would otherwise have ended up in landfill because it was surplus to requirements, branding on packaging had changed, it had damaged outer packaging and casing, or tins and boxes are dented or ripped. “The food, once sorted, is given to local food banks, night shelters and organisations that provide lunches for the elderly and sick. It’s also made into parcels for vulnerable and needy members of the Rushden local community. Energy drinks and food are also supplied to Northamptonshire Police, so they can give them to homeless young adults living on the county’s streets.” Team Phoenix is getting to the conference thanks to the generous sponsorship of Taylor Shaw, the education sector catering specialist who are suppliers to The Education Fellowship academies in Northamptonshire. Taylor Shaw are paying for the transport and tickets for the seven students to attend this important conference. The two staff supporting the team are being sponsored by The Education Fellowship. Emma Satchell, Business Development Manager of Taylor Shaw Limited, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Team Phoenix. To us, a successful partnership is one where we are not just the provider of great food but one where we’re an integral and valued support to the whole school. We’re all so impressed by the amazing work and initiatives Team Phoenix are responsible for and look forward to hearing about the conference from the students – the discussions, current thinking and way forward.” Johnson Kane, CEO of The Education Fellowship, said: “We are inordinately proud of these students whose selfless volunteering each week throughout the year is an example to us all. Not only do they work at the food hub but they’re also responsible for initiating a breakfast event at the Academy for Year 11s sitting their GCSE exams this term. Before long they also hope to run a Come Dine With Me event aimed at supporting families of Pupil Premium students and those who are young carers, to make sure they are able to cook quality meals using surplus foods from the Food Hub. They are a credit to both the Academy and their families.” Team Phoenix member Jack (15) said: “We’re well aware of the challenging social issues facing many people in the local community and hoped that by giving our time we could make a difference to at least some people in need. Out of all of the places where we could have volunteered, we chose the Phoenix Resource Centre because of their commitment and dedication to the food poverty cause. We feel really honoured to be invited to such a prestigious event and can’t wait to represent our peers and Rushden Academy.” 08 News To submit your news story or event visit www.nenevalleynews.co.uk or call 01522 513515 06/06/15 Empty homes given a new lease of life Empty homes that were once a blight on the streets of East Northamptonshire have been given a new lease of life thanks to East Northamptonshire Council, with support from a local housing association. Since March 2011, 196 homes in East Northamptonshire have been transformed, regenerating local areas and providing much needed extra affordable homes for those in housing need. Paul Palmer, Empty Homes Officer for East Northamptonshire Council, Corby Borough Council and Malvern Hills District Council, is responsible for identifying empty properties and working with owners to return them to use. He said: “Most empty homes are privately owned and when they fall into disrepair, the owner often lacks the funds or the skills to repair and manage the property. By talking to the owner, we can help set up an action plan for restoring the property and establish ways in which it can be funded. “For example, we identified an empty home on St Martins Close in Rushden. We approached the owner and offered them the chance to work with us. They were really keen and I explained that grant funding Full steam ahead, virtually For all railway enthusiasts and especially for those who remember the line from Peterborough to Northampton there is a treat at Oundle Museum. David Wilkinson, as part of a larger project, has created a computerised simulation of a postwar journey from Tansor to Barnwell station, including a stop at Oundle station. Using photos, maps, GPS and various documents he has produced a remarkable experience of travelling on the steam engine in the period of steam. Details of the countryside and landmarks are easily recognisable, such as the Oundle church spire, the river and the gasometers (only the cattle and sheep are not original). This simulation enables visitors to travel back in time and reflect on the changing face of local transport. Sign up to commit Random Acts of Wildness Get really wild this June with the Wildlife Trust’s month long challenge – spend 30 Days Wild... was available through Housing Association partner, Rockingham Forest. An action plan was set up and work began on a new kitchen and heating system. The property has now been let through the Keyway rental scheme to some very happy tenants.” Paul explained plans for the future of The Empty Homes project: “It’s great to see so much good progress being made on empty properties but we acknowledge that much remains to be done and we will continue to work with property owners and help them recreate much needed homes. “Each property brought back into use qualifies for New Homes Bonus funding – £6,000 per property based on a Band D average rating. So with the 196 properties returned to use in East Northamptonshire, the district has received £1.1m of funding. We’ve spent £40,000 over four years, making the project a success, so we feel this is a good return on the investment. “Having worked successfully with willing owners, we are now turning attention to the more problematic cases, and will be looking at our range of enforcement tools for the more long-term empties in poor condition with reluctant owners.” The Paradox of H E Bates A special meeting of the H E Bates Discussion Group was held at the end of April, when the group’s invited guest was Professor Dean Baldwin from the USA. Professor Baldwin is the author of a biography of H E Bates written in the 1980s, and his previous research in the UK has given him an indepth knowledge of H E, his characters and the locations where a lot of the novels were based. Professor Baldwin was introduced by the Mayor, Councillor Richard Lewis, who was an invited guest with the Town Clerk, Viv Prodger. The talk given by Professor Baldwin was entitled ‘The Paradox of H E Bates’, and he described H E’s struggle to support his family in the early years of his writing and the novels based locally – Love for Lydia based around Rushden Hall; Spella Ho based around Knuston Hall; and The Poacher written with help of his grandfather, George Lucas, and dedicated to a friend, Sam Smith, who lived in Prospect Avenue. H E presented Smith with a signed copy of every book he had published – which were bought, after Sam’s passing, by Peter Eades, another biographer. Professor Baldwin drew comparisons between Bates and some of his contemporaries, such as T S Eliot and Aldous Huxley. A vote of thanks was given by Bates’s granddaughter, Victoria Wicks. Another visitor, Neil Anderson from Yorkshire, together with one of the Group’s founders, Eric Fowell, organised a display of ‘Bates Ephemera’ – photos etc with connections to the author. Mr and Mrs Baldwin, with the Group Chair Mrs Ann Harris, were given a tour of the Hall and the American guests were presented with a facsimile of a painting by Charles Leaver portraying Rushden in 1875, signed by all members present. Refreshments were supplied by Elaine Buckby of Mrs B’s Sandwich Emporium. The Group’s next meeting will be on Wednesday 9th September at 2pm in Rushden Town Bowls Club when Victoria Wicks will speak about H E’s days in the RAF. No dog lead leads to hefty fine The challenge is simple and designed to delight: make room for nature this June – no matter where you are or how busy your life. Draw a tree, collect beautiful stones, look up the Latin name of a bird or plant, make a plaintive tune through a piece of grass, thread a daisy chain – endless simple, pleasing ways to connect to nature. The Wildlife Trust BCN (and Trusts across the country) are encouraging an activity or action every day during the month of June, looking to create the UK’s first month-long nature challenge event. 30 Days Wild involves committing to Random Acts of Wildness each day of June. Keeping things simple, it can be a sociable time to share the wildness with family, friends and colleagues; to list/ choose favourite wild things for one second, one minute, or one hour a day – your daily bit of wildness.

The woman from Kimbolton Road, Higham Ferrers has already received a verbal warning and three Fixed Penalty Notices for not having her dogs on leads at the park and most recently was caught by the East Northamptonshire Council Dog Warden and a PCSO for the same offence in the same location. When approached by the two officers, she was heard to say: “Here we go again. Don’t bother giving me the ticket; you know where I live, just put it through my door.” She then left the park. This latest offence earned the dog owner a court appearance at Northampton Magistrates where she pleaded guilty, was convicted and received a fine of £150, costs of £250 and a victim surcharge of £20. Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Steven North, said: “It’s unfortunate that continued breaches of the law at this location have led to the council having to take court action and a dog walker has now received a criminal record. These orders are in place so that everyone can enjoy the recreation ground in comfort and safety.” For more information about dog control orders in East Northamptonshire, visit www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/ dogcontrolorders 06/06/15 News 09 To submit your news story or event visit www.nenevalleynews.co.uk or call 01522 513515 Appreciation shown for What’s in your bidon*?

The children were not forgotten, as the vicar had borrowed a whole selection of toys from her grandchildren for the young visitors to play with, whilst the grown ups chatted. This was mainly a fun event, but £150 was also raised for the church restoration fund which needs over £1 million pounds for urgently needed work. The organisers of this event would like to thank local companies Lidl, Waitrose, Asda, The Coop, and Iceland for their generous donations. The next event is St Peter’s Flower Festival and Art Exhibition on 13th and 14th June – entry is free, and lunch and teas will be served on both days – open from 10am–5pm on Saturday, and 12noon to 5pm on Sunday.

This will be a general showcase of local community activities, international projects and Rotary’s programmes for young people. There will be displays and exhibitions from clubs and the culmination of the district’s Young Designer Competition, in which fabulous designs from young people around the district will be judged and awards presented. Anyone who is interested in joining Rotary is more than welcome to visit the Showcase to see at first hand the activities undertaken, causes supported and speak to experienced Rotarians who will be pleased to answer any queries. Fun for all – with flying teddies – at the Titchmarsh Village Fete this month The Tithmarsh Village Fete will open at 12noon on Saturday 13th June. Many activities will be hosted in the arena including maypole dancing, a fancy dress competition, a pet show, folk dancing, a dog agility show and children’s races. Then the Flying Teddies will take to the air at 3.15pm (registration for entry closes at 3pm). Thrapston Town Band and the Hargrave Singers will also be performing in the church. There will be many stalls to cater for all age groups, with a beer tent, Pimm’s, BBQ, pizzas and paninis for refreshment. A Grand Draw will also be held, with many wonderful prizes on offer. Entry is FREE with free parking and a free programme. Open Garden Scheme – Sir Ewan and Lady Harper’s garden will also be open during the afternoon with teas available in the church. action2mobility.co.uk 10 collections for visitors to enjoy. The more curious looking ones initially attract the most attention but the fascinating stories behind some of our more ordinary things can be just as intriguing as the items themselves. We try to bring different objects to the forefront throughout the year and even sometimes completely redress a room. “It’s a great way to show different perspectives, or focus on different stories about the buildings we care for and their former occupants. Visitors regularly tell us that they return time after time because there’s always something new to discover.” It’s not just inside that new discoveries can be made. Outdoors, the ever-changing landscape erupts with the fragrant scent and colour of delicate orchard blossom at Canons Ashby and there are Discovery Tours to highlight the main features of the Garden at Lyveden New Bield. In addition the animals and birds can be seen and heard in the grounds at Lyveden as they busily prepare for the warmer weather ahead. It’s the perfect time of year to rediscover your favourite places and uncover hidden secrets. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/midlands to find out more. Woodland Fun with the Oxlip Owlets Owlets explore, get muddy, play with sticks and have adventures! If you are aged 3, 4 or 5, you can become an Oxlip Owlet this summer in a ‘secret’ East Northamptonshire woodland. Over four sessions on Friday mornings, from 12th June to 3rd July, you and your child can explore, play and create at Oxlip Wood, led by experienced Forest School Practitioners and Environmental Educators. The activities are designed to be fun and exciting, but also to develop the children’s awareness, verbal and social skills through interacting with the environment and each other. Children aged 3, 4 or 5 can become an Oxlip Owlet and must be accompanied by an adult who is willing to join in the fun. The four sessions cost £30 for each child with an accompanying adult, and there is also a discount for siblings. Oxlip Wood is an ancient woodland established as a Deer Park on the orders of the King in 1328, located between Thrapston, Oundle and Corby. It is privately owned, and because it is not open to the public, it is an oasis of peaceful tranquillity in the Northamptonshire countryside.

Rushden A were severely depleted, with three top players missing on the evening. This meant that B team regulars Keith Bristow and Phil Campbell had to step into the breach. Rushden were heavily outgunned on the bottom four boards, with an average grade deficit of 21 points. Alan Lewis played well to hold Jonny Martin to a draw on board 2; things went less well on the bottom three boards with Saj, Keith and Phil being taken down by superior Kettering firepower. This just left Hugh Murphy fighting for a consolation win on board 1; this was a tense game with Peter Jaszkiwskyj giving a good account of himself. In the end Hugh’s experience proved to be the decisive factor and Peter resigned after 39 moves. Kettering’s win now means that they have pushed Chess Mates B into third place in League I, with Chess Mates A taking the honours after a magnificent campaign this season with only one defeat. Rushden ended up in fourth place just ahead of Corby. Kettering B is now relegated, with their place being taken by Rushden B next season. This has proved to be a successful season for Rushden. The A team only just missed out on a place in the John Robinson Knockout Cup final Kettering are early leaders Kettering C began their season in East Northants Tennis League Men’s Division Two with two emphatic victories. Their first match was played out at Thrapston C in very difficult windy conditions, and it was the Kettering side who adapted the better with Adam Brown / Mihai Diac defeating Grant Maly / Keith Stockley 6-0, 6-4 and Ed Frain / Paul Milner 6-0, 6-2. Nicky Helbick / Dermot Bailey provided strong support beating Frain / Milner 6-3, 6-1 and halving 6-4, 3-6 with Maly / Stockley. A visit to Corby C proved to be a one-sided affair. Chris Todd / Jamie Hills stepped down from B team duties to aid the Kettering cause and the Corby quartet were left well beaten, though Gerry Lee / John Hanlon gave a resolute performance against Diac / Helbick, just being edged out 6-3, 6-3. Corby C’s next match against Thrapston C was a much closer affair. Lee / Hanlon halved both rubbers, 6-4, 5-7 with Maly / Chris Hutchinson and 6-3, 3-6 against Stockley / James Skelton. Casey McQuade / Tony Cook lost out to Maly / Hutchinson but secured a half with Stockley / Skelton to leave Thrapston 5-3 winners. Thrapston B made a fine start to their campaign in their quest for a quick return to Division One. Against their C team Phil Taylor / Tom Roberts led the charge claiming all four sets, 6-0, 6-2 over Skelton / Duncan Williams and 6-3, 6-4 against Stockley / Julius Richards. Pete Kirk / Hutchinson defeated Skelton / Williams 7-5, 6-0 but had to settle for a 7-1 success when Stockley / Richards gained a 6-2, 0-6 half. 06/06/15 by Derrick Sims and the B team gained promotion to Division I in the SKL. We now have the interesting prospect of Rushden A playing Rushden B at home and away! The club’s membership has also strengthened over the last year with an influx of new members at both junior and senior level. This will undoubtedly lead to more strength in depth with opportunities to augment our league teams.
