3November NewsAs you can see on the opposite page, the school is organising a specialevent for bonfire night which we hope will be very well attended. Theschool asks if nearby residents could make sure that their animals arekept in and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused on thisevening.As the Village Fire Service are lighting the bonfire, we can be certain thatthere will not be any risk from this event. However, more generally, theKent Fire and Rescue Service is urging people not to let an out of controlbonfire spoil the fun this firework night.Eastry Watch Manager, Andy Deveson, said: “In the build up to bonfirenight we’re asking people to take a few simple steps to help ensure yourfirework evening goes off with a bang and doesn’t end in disaster.“It is important to position your bonfire well clear of buildings, gardensheds, fences and overhanging branches. Never use accelerants suchas petrol or paraffin to get it going and always keep a bucket of water orhosepipe nearby.“When putting out your bonfire, ensure it has been extinguished fully anddon’t leave it to burn out unattended. If your bonfire does get out ofcontrol, it is far safer to call the fire service than trying to tackle the blazeyourself.”Of course, a more sombre event that occurs each November isRemembrance Day. This is reflected in our front cover of a poppy fieldand a personal remembrance from a resident on page 14. Details of theRemembrance Parade are given on page 11.One of the attractions of living in Eastry is its range of shops. Few villageshave such facilities within walking distance, so in each issue we will focuson one of the shopkeepers who are so much part of our community.

10Priest’s LetterThe First Day of November is celebrated in the Church as All Saints Day,more traditionally known as All Hallows. Whilst, for All Saints, the Churchis looking to highlight examples of good and virtuous living, popularculture has instead taken a somewhat macabre interest in the day beforeAll Saints – namely All Hallows Eve, or Hallowe’en.The history of Hallowe’en goes back a very long way - certainly topre-Christian times. On this night it was considered that the boundarybetween the world of the living and the world of the dead became soblurred that spirits of the dead and inhabitants from the underworld wereable to walk free on the earth, and that spirits of the dead were movingaround looking for bodies to inhabit. As a result, people stayed in thesafety of their houses - but if anyone needed to venture out, perhaps tobring in some fuel for the fire, they dressed as a spirit or otherworldlycreature to blend in and avoid the possibility of possession. So thetradition of dressing as ghosts and ghouls began.Of course, the real meaning of Hallowe’en is not about outwitting ghostsand ghouls and things that go bump in the night, but rather pointing usforward to the celebration of All Saints - when we remember all thosewho have striven for what is right and good, who have remained faithfuland who now take their place in heaven. They are not necessarily peoplewho have done anything especially wonderful or noteworthy, but ordinarypeople who, nevertheless, are an example and an inspiration.So All Saints Tide has become very much a time when we remember ournearest and dearest who have nurtured, guided, supported andencouraged us, but have now passed through this life. We give thanksfor all that they have given and for the many ways that our lives are thericher and better for having known them.Eastry Parish Church will be holding a Memorial and ThanksgivingService, to mark All Saints, at 3pm on Sunday, 3rd November. Duringthe service the names of any who have recently died or whom weespecially wish to remember will be read out. As we remember them weacknowledge our own limitations and failings, but also take our inspirationas we look ahead from those who have gone before.Anyone, whether living in Eastry or elsewhere, is very welcome to attend.If you have a beloved friend or relative you would like included amongstthose we remember, please phone me (01304 619619) or email:davidridley@btopenworld.com or add their names to the list in Church.David Ridley

14Only a Telegram BoyIt’s 1943 and a boy only just into long trousers starts work as a telegramboy in the village post office. He left school on Friday and began hisworking life at 14 years on the following Monday. The tools for his jobcomprise a fairly old bicycle and a leather pouch around his middle thatholds the little yellow envelopes that may contain the messages ofgreeting, hope, despair, sadness and a variety of other human emotions.The area he has to cycle in any one day is not only within the village butalso to Northbourne, Finglesham or Chillenden (perhaps twice or morea day) together with all the numerous places in between. Many of themessages are for the officers and troops stationed in the large housesand estates in the area. Knowlton Court, Northbourne Court,Betteshanger House, Finglesham Grange and here in Eastry,Statenborough House, Great Walton, Brook House,The Vicarage andEastry Court . The boy is never stopped or questioned by theauthorities, as they know him with the familiarity of frequent telegramdeliveries. Until he started work he had not heard of the term “DearJohn” but he came to learn its meaning!The boy stayed in the job for about two years and became tired of theincessant cycling that the work entailed but he had learned much abouthuman beings and indelibly implanted in his mind are not the messagesof greeting, hope, etc. but of the messages which always began with“The Secretary of State for….. is sorry to inform you……”.Whenever the names of those who fell in combat during the last war areremembered or he reads a name on a memorial, wherever it may be, heremembers too the special telegram that would have been received andthen handed to a grieving family. Or he recalls the father who brokedown in great distress before him and in that moment a small boy of 14years saw for himself the reality, the grief and the futility of war andbecame a little wiser and more than a little older.Contributed by an Eastry Resident.A Christmas RoseChristmas is a time for bringing families together, but it can also be a timeof sorrow for those who have lost loved ones. The Flower Arrangerswould like to place roses amongst the Christmas floral arrangements, toremember loved ones.If you would care to donate a rose in memory of a loved one atthis time, the cost is £2.50 per rose.PLEASE GIVE YOUR DONATION:Liz Kinns, 81 Peak Drive (611400), Christine Jones,12 Little Walton(611581) or Mrs. Brenda Burton, "White Rose", Sandwich Road

16The ButcherAt the start of the recession in 2008, Britain’s high-street butcher’s shopswere closing at a rate of 23 a month, as more people bought their meatat supermarkets. Eastry is fortunate that Stuart Baitup brought hisbutchery skills and expertise to the village in April to set up a traditionalfamily butcher’s along with his wife Cheryl.Anyone who has stepped inside cannot miss the passion and enthusiasmStuart has for his profession – which he began at the age of 12 as aSaturday boy in his local butcher’s shop in Kingsdown. Eastry is his firstsolo venture and enables him to fulfil his ambition of providing locallysourcedmeat, cut as required by his customers. “I’m trying to source asclose to Eastry as possible,” explains Stuart. “For example our lamb isfrom Nonington. And I’m also selling locally-caught fish and vegetablesfrom growers close by, some in the village itself. Which means everythingis seasonal and very fresh – you may be buying carrots that were still inthe ground that morning.”Having his own business means Stuart can experiment with productssuch as his sausages which he makes on the premises. “He’s forevertrying out new recipes – beef with ale, gluten-free pork and leek, newspice mixes” Cheryl explains. “And he’s always open to suggestions.”Knowing his customers by name, and being able to give them ideas andadvice and get feedback, was part of the attraction, for Stuart, of havinghis own business. “But I appreciate many people have only ever boughtmeat in a supermarket and it can be daunting to come into a shop wherethey don’t just pick up a package. But these are the customers we wantto encourage. I just want people to come in and have a look and a chatabout what they like - with absolutely no obligation to buy.“It may surprise some to know that we are not all about expensive cuts.I make my own burgers, which are always in stock and I can advise onhow to cook cheaper cuts, such as belly of pork or rabbit. We all havehousehold budgets and I can show customers how to make a little,good-quality meat go a long way. I do think people are concerned aboutwhat they eat - the horse-meat scandal has made many people reassesswhat they buy. I can tell you where every animal, egg and vegetablecomes from.”Stuart is now taking Christmas orders (deadline 14th December) fromtraditional turkey and gammon to goose, duck or fore rib of beef – and ifyou want an unusual cut for a particular recipe, then Stuart will be happyto prepare this for you.Many villages in the UK would envy us having such an establishment inthe high street. Like all our shops, they will only flourish if we supportthem.Lesley Daley

17Cricket End of Year ReportAnother glorious cricket season has drawn to a close, and it was onemeasured with a great deal of success for Eastry Cricket Club. The seasonstarted with freezing playing conditions by cricketing standards, whereplayers, spectators and scorers alike were dressed more appropriately toundertake a trek to the North Pole, rather than play cricket. However,Eastry braved the cold and the rain and came away with some keyvictories against strong league opposition such as Canterbury CC andDeal Victorians. As the weather warmed up so did the team’s form, as theECC Saturday XI found a hot streak and by the third quarter of the seasonthey found themselves still undefeated on the back of some spectacularteam performances combined with one or two tense draws. This unbeatenrun ended however in a very soggy game against London side, STAR,who snatched a limited overs victory with help from a ratherunconventional luminous orange cricket ball. This left the Saturday skipperGraham Phebey claiming that his side was undefeated with the red ballall season!Statistically many players stood out this year; notably this summer sawHarry Kenton reach 1000 runs for the first time in his career as he reachedthe sum of 1085 runs from 24 innings, with a whopping 34 sixes to boot,whilst Matt Deveson took 36 wickets at an average of 17 over the courseof the season. Veteran Eastry players such as Andy Betts (22 wickets),Roger Hill (21 wickets) and Dave Waring (16 wickets) provided reliabilitywith economic bowling as well as experience in lower order battingthroughout the year. The rest of the stats were hogged by the Friendfamily, as brothers Aaron and Gareth Friend carried the teams on theirback to victory on numerous occasions. Gareth put in an all-round effortthis season scoring 801 runs at an average of 57 whilst also contributing37 wickets in the bowling attack. Aaron Friend eclipsed the whole teamhowever, with an astonishing 1428 runs at an average of 59.5, scoringsix 50s and six centuries along the way, while also contributing 19 catchesand 11 stumpings as wicket keeper. Many other players contributed thisyear, as the club used 55 different players over the course of the season,many of which consisted of the clubs younger players such as theEastman brothers and Rahul Patel, who we hope in the years to comewill go on to match the milestones of those that have gone before them.Overall on both Saturday and Sunday the Club tallied a total of 26 wins,5 draws with only 8 losses for the year. The club is always looking fornew players and if you would like to be part of the club’s growing successeither by playing or supporting, visit our club website atwww.blog.eastrycricketclub.com to find out how to join our friendly andsocial club, or visit www.eastry.play-cricket.com for match reports andmore stats for the season.Matt Deveson

18Local AuthorsWe are fortunate in the village to have several published authors, ofwhom, two currently have books on sale.1Rose Beer’s book “My Mother Said.....” is acollection of her poems and reflections from herchildhood through to the present including herunrequited passion for a now retired Eastry GPand thoughts about Christmas.It was launched at the Craft Fair in October andis now selling well at Bickers and the Pharmacy.It only costs £4 and would make an idealChristmas present.All profits from the sale of the book will go tothe Village Hall Fund.Zsuzsanna Snarey has also produced a bookof her personal memoirs.At the end of the Second World War Hungarybecame a Russian ‘protectorate’ without theconsent of the people. Communism was establishedby stealth and it was not possible to leave thecountry legally with a passport. The only way toescape was to cross the border on foot which wasboth illegal and very dangerous.....In the late autumn of 1948 after our failedattempt at escaping I lay paralysed by polio in anisolation ward while my mother was in prison.After the Hungarian Revolution of October 1956was crushed by Russia and all hope of freedomvanished, thousands of people fled their homes tocross the Austrian border. My mother realisedthat she now had an opportunity to leaveHungary...This book is the result of talks given at the Eastry and District Open Grouplast year and for the Sandwich Library Guild at the Guild Hall in May 2013where interest was expressed about the personal story of the author. Itis available at Eastry Chiropody and at Bickers and also as an e-bookfrom Kindle. Soon it will be available on Amazon and also in book shops.

19Did you know a writer does not need anaudience, words are still written on a pagewhether someone reads them or not. However,words on a page could be anything; it is onlywhen they are read that they become more thanjust a collection of words. Therefore, I will startwith a thank you for taking the time to read myramblings and to raise them above a merecollection of words.I know it is a bad word in many homes, but Christmas is coming.According to some supermarkets, it has been on its way since Augustwhen the wrapping paper hit the shelves. I love Christmas, I like thedecorations and the sparkles and the soppy films. The best bit ofChristmas is friends and family, spending time with those you love andcare for.The WI fits well with Christmas in many ways. The obvious being thecooking and handicrafts that can be learnt from other members and thevisiting speakers that come to meetings. However, there is more to it thanthat; it is about women reaching women. I think it is about empowerment,support and friendship; it can be seen on a grand scale through thecampaigns but more important is what your local WI can give you.Eastry WI has supported me through my degree and made me realise Ishould shout out what I have achieved. They have also shown me a lotof love and care through a period of ill health. The WI is not about onething or one person it is about all of us, ultimately it is about women andconsidering the difficulties our female predecessors have faced then weshould embrace the opportunities and support that this organisation cangive us, whether locally or nationally.Shani Barwick LLB (Hons)For more information, please contact:Ann Fordham, President 01304 619519Dover District Council - Bin CollectionsNon-recyclable Waste (Black Wheeled Bin) & Food WasteTuesdays 12th, 26th NovemberAll Recyclable Waste (Plastics,Tins, Bottles) & Food WasteBlue Lidded Wheeled Bin , Cardboard & Green WasteTuesdays 5th, 19th November

20In The GardenI have just finished putting my greenhouses to bed for the winter. All thetomato plants have been removed from Greenhouse No.1, the internalglass and framing has been washed down and benching re-installed.Tender pot plants have been brought in from the garden to spend theirwinter days in the welcome shelter under glass (before you bring theplants into the greenhouse, check to make sure there aren’t any slugs,snails or other unwanted guests in the pots or on the plants).In Greenhouse No.2, my fuchsias have been trimmed back by two-thirds,treated against vine-weevil and the watering cut right down so thecompost is only just moist. They are all wrapped in horticultural fleeceand they will stay like this until next spring.My Cactus Greenhouse No.3 is now set for the cold winter months. Allmy treasured plants are wrapped in fleece and placed as low as possibleunder the benching, to protect them from frost. (None of my greenhousesare heated) They had their last water and feed back in October, and won’tre-appear on the benches until March next year.All greenhouse shading has been removed and the glass has had athorough wash down.I prefer to use horticultural fleece as a wrapping for protecting my plantsas it is breathable. Bubble-wrap, being plastic is a good insulation, butmoisture cannot escape and can cause botrytis or other fungus problems.You can start your winter digging in your vegetable garden or allotment.Dig one spade depth, turn over and leave rough for the winter frost andrain to do its job.For an early crop of broad beans next year, you can now sow them directinto the ground, but beware!, Mice love them and will have no problemin eating all the seeds you painstakingly sowed. I prefer to wait until nextFebruary and sow them in modules in a cold greenhouse, ready forplanting out in late March.Flower boarders can look a bit sad at this time of the year, but if you leavea few seed heads, grasses etc., it’s surprising how nice they look withthe frost glistening on them.If the weather allows, you can keep mowing the lawn, but before youstart, always remove any worm casts, raise the blades to a higher setting,and don’t mow if a frost is forecast.Keep checking the quality of your stored fruit & vegetables, as the sayinggoes ‘it only takes one bad apple’!After you have finished, make a cup of tea, put your feet up and carry onlooking through your seed catalogues.Happy Gardening, Art E. Choke

21With winter fast approaching and the darker evenings, may Iurge all cyclists young and not so young to make sure that they do notride without lights. It is not only a question of being visible but also forcyclists to be able to see the road.The Fire and Rescue Service will be pleased to replace out of datesmoke alarms for the elderly, vulnerable and families with small children.The modern alarm will last for 10 years before the battery runs out. Yourhome can be checked for fire hazards and warnings given where excesspaper and card is hoarded. Everyone is urged to use the re-cycling binsand de-clutter the house. For advice re smoke alarms telephone theKent Fire and Rescue Service Tel: 0800 9237000. They really are afriendly and helpful bunch.Neighbourhood Watch recently held its AGM. All committee memberswere re-elected and we look forward to doing what we can to keep thevillage safe. Community Warden Bob Priestley is very supportive toNHW and is a much respected member of the Parish, he is always onthe lookout for problems in the village and is especially good atcontacting Trading Standards and dealing with fly tipping.Cold callers have recently been calling on householders offering newdriveways and house painting. Please do not accept these offers.Always get three estimates and whereever possible use local traderswho you know. Be very wary of white vans unmarked or others that onlyuse a mobile phone number. You do not know where they have travelledfrom or how shoddy the work could be. If in doubt contact Bob PriestleyTel 07811271299 and please look out for elderly and vulnerableneighbours who could be tempted by these doorstop sellers.The guest speaker at the AGM was Angela Vince from the ShepwayLifeline. She spoke eloquently about the benefits of wearing an alarmfor emergencies whether it be a fall or dealing with nuisance callers.The cost is £2.90 per week but could be a lifesaver. Angela told us ofsome users who are living alone and are quite lonely so no one mindsif they press the button in the morning to reassure the centre staff thatthey are up and dressed and all is well. Better that than risking a falland being left unaided for hours or even days. These bracelets reallycan be lifesavers. The Shepway Lifeline Tel. No. is 01303 242615 or242971 for a free demonstration in your home.Keep safe and warm.Neighbourhood Watch andCommunity Warden NewsSheila Smith - Eastry Neighbourhood Watch.

22The Late Lady Julia Pender, O.B.E. D.L.KIn the passing of Lady Pender, the county and particularly the people ofEast Kent have lost someone who in her lifetime made a greatcontribution directly and indirectly to the Kent County Council and themany associated organisations with which she was connected.Here in Eastry we are indebted to her for the support and encouragementshe gave the Parish Council when it was urging the Kent County Councilto create a bypass for the village, made more necessary after theappalling lorry accident in Lower Street. Behind the scenes Lady Penderused every means available to her to persuade the authorities of the needfor a new road to divert the heavy goods vehicles away from the centreof the village. This even involved personally walking with KCC officialsand parish council members from Felderland Lane into the village toemphasise first hand the volume of heavy traffic and the dangers involved.Lady Pender succeeded where others had not and in late July 1991 stoodin great joy with us when the first sod was broken which commenced theconstruction of the now familiar by-pass.In all that Lady Pender undertook, she brought to her work - and in greatmeasure - humour, kindliness and graciousness which underpinned herdetermination to achieve what she considered was right and appropriatefor the people and community she represented, particularly in her roleas a County Councillor.Her work was rightly recognised when she was awarded the O.B.E.Lady Pender gave us a generous unstinted insight into what publicservice should really be about and we thank her for the example she hasset us.D. K. EldridgePast member and chairman, Eastry Parish Council.Drivers Take CareFurther to Sheila Smith’s advice to cyclists on the previous page, Iwould like to add a warning to drivers on the dangers of cyclists onthese dark nights, based on a recent personal experience.Our lanes have numerous potholes and it can be very dangerous if acyclist has to swerve to miss one and a car is following behind. Themotorist doesn't see the pothole because of the cyclist and is notexpecting the swerve - an accident waiting to happen. So don't followtoo closely and give cyclists as wide a berth as possible when passingat night.Sue Manton

23Buttsole PondWell the recent rain has filled the village pond, transforming it from asoggy wetland into what we normally expect a pond to look like. Thedragonflies have been and continue to be a delight - there seem to be alot of them this year. The rowan sapling planted near the fence behindthe seat is growing well but unfortunately a few of the others have died,probably due to the drought period.At this time of year the pond and surrounding area gets a bit overgrown.The reeds and rushes need reducing so that they don't completely takeover and the willow is rooting where it shouldn't, encroaching on thewater. The island willow that I cleared earlier in the year is back with avengeance.The main problem in the area is the fast spreading stonecrop pond weed,a non-native that is taking over the country’s waterways. Dredging andspraying only temporarily hinder it. A researcher at the university hadheard about it in our pond and is studying it as part of his project. Let'shope he can come up with information that helps us control it.In the next few weeks I could do with some help in sorting out some ofthese things and can make more progress with a little help. If you havea little time to spare and want to get involved in making your pond a betterplace for folk and wildlife to enjoy, please call me or leave a message on611320 or join one of the work parties detailed below.Many thanks, Simon Dundas (Pond Warden)Eastry Parish Council would like to arrange work parties during theAutumn/Winter months to carry out some much needed help clearingand tidying up of the village pond. All volunteers are welcome.Proposed dates are as follows:Saturday 9th NovemberWednesday 13th NovemberSaturday 23rd NovemberWednesday 27th NovemberSaturday 7th DecemberIf anyone is interested please contact: Cllr Martin Kemp on 01304 612652or 07717337912 or Cllr Sandra Hooper on 01304 611470Housework never killed anyone - but don’t risk it anyway.Rose Beer
