Parish Council Chat

A recent City Break led me to consider, not for the first time, the society in

which we live and move. I am at a loss to understand why, in crowded busy

streets and public places so many people, possibly a majority, move about

staring fixedly into the small screens of their smart phones. Not only that but

some also have headphones on. So perhaps these people not only are not

looking where they are going but cannot hear anything said to them, a

greeting, a warning or simply ‘look where you are going’. Then, in the Tube,

(drat now you think that you know which City I was visiting), as the train

rattles to the next stop, nearly all passengers are staring into the screens of

their smart phones. But worse still for me, as one who enjoys fellowship

during a meal, why do some people take a seat in a restaurant, order food,

set up a smart phone or other device and sit twittering, tweeting or whatever

it is that they do while good food quietly congeals on the plate beside them?

“Ah ha” I hear you say. That is because you are not modern and up to date”.

Is that so? Well I have a smart phone, a lap top and a desk top, all of which I

use. That is probably the point, I use them but do not allow them to use me!

How do these observations translate to our parish? Sadly, and despite the

best efforts of law makers and enforcers, it is still too common to see drivers

using the phone while at the wheel. The bigger the vehicle the more

unconcerned the drivers seem about their lawbreaking, as witness the driver

of a JCB towing a loaded trailer seen recently reversing from Oakham Road

into Owston Road while on the phone! Many of the cyclists passing through

our villages are ‘wired for sound’ and it is not unusual to see horse riders,

you’ve guessed it, staring fixedly into the small screens of their smart phones

as they ride.

Of course we do not need this digital paraphernalia to observe what is

happening in and around the parish. This long hot summer, enjoyed by

many, is however taking its toll on gardens, grassland and doubtless the

yields from our farms. Getting necessary work done by the authorities

remains a problem owing largely to limited funds. However, we are looking

forward to the completion of the project at the bridge in Leesthorpe for

which your Parish Council has worked for eight years or more. On the subject

of highways, how are you enjoying the ride up from Langham to Cold

Overton? I know that this is not in our parish. However this road is used by

many of our parishioners. It certainly gives ‘rock and roll’ a new meaning.


You will have seen much white paint on this section of highway. This does

not of course mend the road but is a harbinger of imminent improvement.

The 113 Bus service drives this route. The driver may suffer motion sickness

with no passengers to hold the vehicle down! Results from the recent

transport consultation will be known soon and we expect to understand then

the likely changes in transport provision. In the meantime enjoy what

remains of the summer and remember that the end of this prolonged heat

will bring its own challenges.

The Rutland Poppy Project

Saturday 8 th September

This is a community artwork event to

commemorate the centenary of the

end of The Great War. This

commemoration will be the most

important of its kind for many


Underpinning the Project are stories

and recollections of this terrible

conflict and, even more important, the hope that these appalling events

must never happen again.

For this to be a realistic hope the organisers want the younger generation,

upon whom our future peace will depend, to be involved and to

understand the causes and lessons of The Great War.

The aim is to create a magnificent large scale sculpture formed of up to

10,000 handcrafted poppies, based on the original work by Paul Cummins

at the Tower of London. The installation will be in the grounds of Oakham

Castle where it will remain on display for a month in October-November


The Project aims to unite generations within the community, raise funds

for forces charities, increase awareness of the sacrifice made by our

forces, improve the lives of those suffering loneliness, ill health, mental or

physical though active participation in this community project &

encourage more visitors to the area.

Too often small towns and rural communities miss the opportunity to

experience major art projects. The Rutland Poppy Project will deliver both

an inspiring sculpture and a memorable and valuable experience for all

generations and abilities across Rutland. It will also provide a focal point

and a chance to remember in our County and beyond everyone who gave

their lives in the defence of others.

Somerby & District Horticultural Society

June saw the horticultural society holding its second Open Gardens in

Somerby and Burrough. This year we had a more limited garden opening

(after last year’s marathon event!) but we did include the churchyard at

Burrough and the horse pond in Somerby. Over 100 visitors from all over

Leicestershire and further afield came along for the afternoon and

thoroughly enjoyed the event. The gardens looked wonderful despite the

challenges thrown at them and us by the freezing winter and cold, wet

spring. The homemade teas went down a storm, the plant stall did brisk

business and the weather was fairly kind to us.

Thank you to all those who helped make the event such a success and to all

the people who came along support us.


On 20 th September we will be going for a group visit to the gardens at

Tresillian House, Dalby Road, Melton Mowbray

October 18 th sees us back in Somerby Methodist Hall with speaker Michael

Brown talking on ‘Early Plants’. This fascinating topic will look at the

medicinal and culinary history of herbs and early plants as well as exploring

their more contemporary uses.

Non members are welcome and if you would like to come along to either

event please contact:

Angela Fisher on 01664 454265 or at for further

St John & St Anne Open Day

The Hospital of St John & St Anne is the oldest charity in

Rutland, having been founded by the wool merchant William

Dalby in 1399. In St John’s Chapel the charity also has

responsibility for one of the oldest properties in Oakham.

Today it focuses on providing good quality accommodation for

those over retirement age who are of limited means, and for this

purpose it has 102 properties available on sites in Oakham and

Uppingham. Applicants do have to have a link with Rutland or the

surrounding areas, and the charity takes a pragmatic approach to

what it considers to be ‘a link’. As such a number of our

beneficiaries have moved from elsewhere in the country so as to

be nearer to their family.

The Charity is hosting an Open Day at its St Anne’s Close site in

Oakham on Saturday 8 th September 2018, from 11am. Anyone

who might have an interest in such accommodation is welcome.

To make an appointment please telephone the office on 01572

756950. Further information about the Charity can be found at


Somerby Camera Club Exh ibition

Having shown their work last year, Camera Club members decided

they were brave enough to try again this summer and Sunday 19 th

August saw the doors open at the Memorial Hall to reveal a display

of work taken largely over the past year together with a selection of

cards & prints on sale. Subjects included landscapes & wildlife, both

exotic and home grown, events and close up macro photography.

Tea & Cake was on sale and much enjoyed by those who attended &

lingered for a chat before going back to have a further browse &

perhaps purchase a card or two.

Proceeds from the teas & a share of proceeds from card and print

sales went to hall funds.

If you want to join Camera Club we usually meet 3 rd Tuesday monthly

Yes, this summer the Singers performed their concert not only in

Somerby but also a couple of weeks later at the invitation of the “Inns &

Outs” group in Twyford too. The theme this time was “A Summer Picnic” with

a selection of songs to reflect the season interspersed with an old favourite or

two and the occasional surprise to entertain the packed house.

The concert opened dramatically with the sound of a roaring lion & the choir

made their entrance to the jungle beat of 'Hakuna Matata' from “The Lion

King”. Other highlights of the first half included the beautiful 'Summer Has

Come' & showcasing the men in the choir 'Angels', the Robbie Williams


Individual members of the choir contributed solo & duo performances from

the beautiful 'Make me a Channel of your Peace’ by Rachel & Amanda,

‘Superstar’ from Kathryn, to the more lighthearted & animated 'Trip to

Bangor' from Lesley & Sylvia.

After a wonderful picnic in the interval yes, a real picnic – sandwiches, snacks

& bottles of cordial, provided by Ros & Sue, the fun continued in the second

half with 'Stand by your Man' sung by Neil & Colin – complete with trilbies

& dark glasses before the more sober 'Last Rose of Summer' from Jane & a

haunting version of 'Memory' from Jasmine.

Somerby Singers then put their own spin on Gilbert & Sullivan's 'Three Little

Maids' – the maids were Kathryn, Rachel & (yes, you've guessed it) Colin who

was brilliantly just half a step behind or spinning the wrong way at the wrong

time!! At the end of the evening it appeared there wouldn’t be an encore...

however they were just fooling & closed with “Bring me Sunshine” made

famous by Morecambe & Wise, complete with a flat-capped Neil in homage

to the Eric Morecambe character.

Both evenings closed to loud applause & thank yous to Amanda Jones, choir

mistress, Annie Ingram, pianist & Ian Jones, the new sounds & effects

member of the team.

The Somerby Concert raised £300 for the singers. The £200 proceeds from

the Twyford concert have been donated to the Children's cancer ward at

Leicester Royal Infirmary.

This month Melton Borough Council will

enter a new 10 year contract with Biffa

on our waste collection services. Some

collection dates may change from the

10 th September but I believe Somerby

Ward will remain the same (a letter will

come out if yours does change). Biffa

have re-designed the routes across the

borough to make collections more

efficient which has been reflected on the cost.

The proportion of the council tax bill which goes to Melton (on average

£169 for a Band D property) 37% is spent on waste collection services.

We have managed to secure a new contract which not only protects

the current collection cycle, as I said I could not support a collection on

three or more weeks after listening to you, but it has seen a £400,000

reduction in the costs to the council which will help offset the

reduction, and eventual removal by 2020, of the Central Government

Grant and ensure the council will continue provide a wide range of

services. Additionally you will be able to leave small electrical

appliances and clothing for collection too.

I know it is important to you that the council is living within its means

and by securing a significant saving has been a vital part of addressing

the budget in its Medium Term Financial Strategy.

For more information please see

Cllr Leigh Higgins
