Parish Council Chat

Once again I am sitting at my computer contemplating

change. Autumn is here and the trees are finally shedding

their leaves, the harvest is in after a tough summer of

drought, and the clocks have gone back to Greenwich Mean

Time. So as we move into shorter days and colder weather it

is tempting to hibernate like the hedgehogs who had been

regular visitors to our garden. Back to more important

issues affecting the Parish…

There is an important information event on Saturday 17 th

November in Somerby Methodist Hall to update everyone in

the Parish about your Neighbourhood Plan. A team of

parishioners and councillors from across all villages have

been working tirelessly over the past 18 months to develop

this document which, when passed by government planning

inspectors, will be a legal document that will inform future

development across Somerby Parish.

There are many other events taking place in November so

don’t be a hedgehog…be more squirrel and pop out to

gather goodies at the Pickwell Handmade Fete on 3 rd

November, or visit Somerby School Christmas Fair on 2 nd

December. You could even find out what the local gardeners

are doing later on in November.

First of all, thank you to everyone who has helped

with the Parish Neighbourhood Plan, including of

course, the many residents who filled in the

questionnaire at the start of this whole process.

We've now reached the last stage of preparing the

Neighbourhood Plan document and hope to complete

it as quickly as possible.

Before we do that, we will hold an Open Day event to

check if the views residents expressed about the future of the Parish are

covered as far as possible by the Plan.

The Open Day will be held on Saturday 17th November

from 12noon to 3:00pm at Somerby Methodist Hall

Coffee and tea will be available

At the Open Day, the main proposals in our local Plan will be exhibited.

These cover topics such as the environment, facilities, infrastructure, housing

and the local economy. Members of the Neighbourhood Plan team will be

there to discuss these proposals in more detail, answer any questions and

take your comments.

We believe we have listened closely to what you told us through the

Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire but now your participation in the Open

Day is important to help speed the process up and let us know if we have

missed something that matters to residents.

After your feedback at the Open Day, we will complete the written Plan

document. This will then be made available to all residents for a formal sixweek

public consultation. After any amendments are made, we will submit

the Neighbourhood Plan to Melton Borough Council for their input.

When completed and approved the Neighbourhood Plan will sit alongside the

Melton Borough Plan when decisions are made affecting our Parish.

Please do take the time to come along on the 17 th

November and encourage your friends and neighbours in

the Parish to do so as well.

SOMERBY PARISH WILDLIFE SURVEY - JUNE 2018

The Neighbourhood Plan team would like to thank everyone who

completed the Parish wildlife survey during last June, and also those

who have sent us their observations during other times of year.

We received 19 surveys for June, each one giving us valuable local

information on the species of birds, mammals, reptiles, bats,

butterflies and moths that share the Parish with us.

Your information will provide support for the biodiversity sections of

the Neighbourhood Plan and, along with borough and county data,

help us better conserve and promote habitats for wildlife in our Parish.

Again, thanks for your contributions.

News from Friends of the Tenth

It was in September 2017 that we launched FOTT and what a year it has

been. We have achieved half of our original fundraising target of £75,000.

Probably the most important news has been the decision to relocate the

commemorative sculpture.

We felt that, as much as and the Para family love and respect Somerby, it was

not proper for us to impose something that did not find universal appeal and

acceptance. During a conversation with the Burrough Court Estate we

received the generous offer of a piece of land on the estate as an alternative

to the now controversial Somerby site. Our committee soon recognised that

the alternative was not only free from controversy, but actually was in many

ways a better location. Situated at the side of the road linking Somerby,

Burrough on the Hill and Twyford, and at the entrance to the Matt Hampson

Foundation, it is almost the geographical centre of the area in which the

entire battalion was billeted. It has great visibility and easy access, parking

will be available, and it overlooks in a poignant way the beautiful valley which

had been a drop zone for battalion exercises in 1944. The new location also,

most importantly, allows us to return to the original, high impact and

significant design and scale that had been so reduced by the constraints

imposed by the Somerby Village Green site.

However, we agreed to offer some kind of recognition or acknowledgement

to Somerby for the kindness given in 1944. We have also heard that there is

some disappointment with our decision to relocate the sculpture. We have

therefore, written to your Parish Council to ask what the village would like,

and we will look favourably upon any reasonable request. Please contact the

PC with your ideas.

We aim to have the unveiling ceremony to coincide with the Somerby

Commemoration on the weekend of the 7 th September 2019, the 75 th

Anniversary.

On the 6 th September we loved, once again, visiting Somerby School to

present the children with their FOTT tee shirts. The children are wearing the

shirts as their sports strip for mini rugby and other games. What formidable

opponents they will be in Para colours, never to be beaten?

Somerby Christmas Tree Festival 2018

To raise money for the upkeep of our

church building

Yes it is that time of year again!! Saturday 22 nd December is the date for the

start of the Christmas Tree Festival, 2.00 pm until 4.30 pm. Tea, coffee and

mince pies will be available to purchase, and you can also vote for your

favourite tree by popping any silver coins in the jars which will be situated by

each tree.

Last year we had 14 trees, which was wonderful, but it would be lovely to try

and make it 20 this year??? If you would like to provide a tree, or anything

that looks like a tree, and decorate in any way you wish, that would be perfect.

Horse Pond

The ox eye daisy, scabious and corncockle that we planted earlier in the year

are still in flower in the middle of October. We are certainly having strange

weather. The working group spent a Saturday morning clearing some of the

undergrowth under the trees ready for planting wild flowers. It’s amazing

how much can be achieved in two hours even when chatting and drinking

coffee is included.

We are hoping to seek permission from Melton Borough Council to reduce in

size a couple of Hazel trees which are encroaching on the grassed area.

The Parish Council in their October meeting agreed that they would like to

have a notice board on the site to help with planting and bird identification.

We are looking for suggestions as to how this could be done and will then

make a recommendation to the Parish Council for what type of notice board

to buy. We want to have a notice board with content that people find

interesting and useful.

The next Horse Pond working group will be on Saturday November 10 th

between 10am and 12 noon. If you just want to come along and see what

we’re doing, we’ll be pleased to see you. Otherwise, bring your gardening

gloves – there’s lots to do!

On Sunday, at 11 o’clock on the 11 th

day, of the 11 th month, it will be

Armistice Day and Remembrance

Sunday and it will be 100 years since

the guns fell silent from the Great

War. It was “the War to End All

Wars” which, when looking back,

seems a somewhat “hopeful”

statement. Britain and her allies

have been involved in many other

military conflicts since, especially the

Second World War which probably

defined the modern world we live in today.

I am sure that those of you reading this today will have your own personal

and private reasons for remembering on the 11 th November. Be that

relatives you never knew, or maybe ones you did, all of them affected by

conflicts over the last 100 years.

This year I will be parading, as the Standard Bearer, for the local Royal

British Legion branch in Gaddesby. It’s a role I’ve fulfilled for many years

and even taken our Standard to the Menin Gate and Royal Albert Hall. In

2010 my Grandad and I marched passed the Cenotaph in Whitehall and

around government buildings back to Horseguards. His father, my Great

Grandfather, was in the Life Guards of the Household Cavalry and

following his Lieutenant-Colonel, the Marquess of Blandford (later the

10th Duke of Marlborough), he signed up for the 1939 – 1945 war. He

sadly died in 1944 off the coast of Holland.

My own beloved Grandad passed away last year just short of his 90 th

birthday. While he was in the Royal Navy he would never have counted

himself as a “military hero”. This year I’ll be paying a silent tribute to him

and his father on Armistice Day.
