STREETWISE MAGAZINE

Welcome to our

April issue!

Spring has finally sprung and as we

look forward to brighter days, our

attention turns to outdoor life which

is reflected in much of our community

section this month.

On page 46 and 47 the Milnrow and

Newhey Walk and Talk Group have

provided us with another lovely walk which

all the family can enjoy over the Easter

weekend. We thank them for their

continued support, they really do supply us

with some fantastic features each month.

A significant date for your diary is the

annual Milnrow and Newhey Carnival which

takes place this year on Saturday 22nd

June. This year’s theme will be ‘At the

Movies’ and it looks set to be another

fantastic event which is not to be missed.

Full details can be found on page 50

of this month’s issue.

We hope you all have a wonderful

Easter Weekend

Until next month…

Fresh Thinking

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

Is Stress Getting the Better of You?

April is National Stress Awareness month. Stress is how your body

and mind work together to respond to any kind of demand or

threat – real or imagined.

It’s these demands that trigger stress and pressure – work,

unexpected traumatic events, even day to day expectations such

as juggling home and work life.

Stress and pressure can manifest itself in things like insomnia,

weight gain or OCD’s and other things too such as low

confidence and self esteem.

Would you like to feel calmer and more in control?

I work very successfully, with people of all ages and walks of life,

helping them to overcome stress and pressure related problems

– essentially to get their lives back on track.

Would you like more information?

From The Archives

PACE EGGING IN ROCHDALE

As long ago as the 16th century pageants

featuring St George were performed in the

streets of England. Thomas Hardy in ‘The

Return of the Native’ described a battle

between St George and a Turkish knight

and doctors plying their trade in miracle

plays were well known in the 15th century.

The West Country had versions of a

Mummers Play with fixed characters

although it has been suggested that the Pace

Egg has roots in Northern Sword Dance

rituals. Others claim that Mummers Plays

originated in fertility rites or the ritual of a

pagan ‘waking of Winter from sleep’

although few, if any, records exist to support

its existence before medieval times. Rather,

Mummers Plays began between 1700 and

1750. In the 19th century what were known

as Raper Dancers feature deight boys

performing a Mummers Play in Brighouse

on Easter Monday, setting Easter as the time

for Pace Egging in the North of England.

Although once witnessed throughout

England, its most recent manifestations have

been in Lancashire and West Yorkshire,

especially in Rochdale.

What had been once an exclusively male

and adult tradition was passed in the 19th

century to children and young people to carry

it forward and in Rochdale, Pace Egging

became an important part of the Easter

celebrations with young boys from the same

streets, neighbourhood or from a school

seeing it as an opportunity to act out a

traditional play and make money besides.

Many of the plays which constituted the Pace

Egg were not written down but passed on

through families and generations of friends.

There were, however, common features. A

sweeper would enter first to make a circle

for the play and then characters would enter

one by one telling the tale of mock battles,

death and revival. St George would take on

such characters as (bold) Slasher, the Prince

of Paradine and the King of Egypt whilst

comic interruptions would come in different

versions from the Fool, Beelzebub, Dirty Bet

or Toss Pot. A hobby horse and a dragon

featured in the early Rochdale plays and in

some versions (certainly the one at

Moorhouse School Milnrow in the 1950’s)

patron saints of the British Isles would

feature and fight. The main characters

however were St George, enemy knights, a

Doctor with a top hat and long frock coat

carrying a bag with his medicines, and Dirty

Bet sometimes played by the most timid boy

dressed up as a woman with a bonnet and

a basket to collect money or – sometimes –

eggs from the audience. Dirty Bet, a Rochdale

alternative to Beelzebub, Devil Doubt or Toss

Pot, would conclude the performance with a

collection rhyme or song about kissing the

girls before a final circle-dance drew together

the whole cast.

In some versions a character called Devil

Doubt would threaten the audience with his

broom if they didn’t give money and it is true

that one key purpose of the local plays was

to make a collection, money being scarce and

every copper helping some families in times

of need!

In Rochdale the play was performed by young

lads in the streets of many parts of town.

There were ‘Street teams’ from Milnrow,

Whitworth Road and Lower Place which

played locally but also in the 1940’s a Pace

Egg took place on the town’s Cattle Market

where the Police Station now stands. Local

schools, scout groups, Sunday Schools may

all have had their own Pace Egg, some

choosing to perform in more wealthy areas of

the town so that they could get a better

‘pay day.’

Costumes consisted of home-made regalia

with breastplates and helmets. Sometimes

the boys wore cloth smocks decorated with

sashes or covered in ribbons, bits of cloth

or strips of paper. The knights would carry

swords made either of wood or actual iron

which were sold for 1d and 2d each depending

on the size (along with the scripts) from the

printers Edwards and Brynings. In some parts

of the country the performers’ faces would be

blackened and this was certainly the case with

the early Rochdale plays.

Not everyone enjoyed a Pace Egg play. One

report from 1914 recounted by Hutton in

his book ‘Stations of the Sun’ said that the

performances in some towns had ‘dinned the

long-suffering householders into a state of

mental distress’ and that they had to stop!

Over the years and particularly since the

1950’s, interest and enthusiasm for the Pace

Egg has waned, only one last special printing

of the play’s script or chapbook being made

in the 1960’s. And such a ritual’s decline is

not without precedence as similar childhood

games - marbles, peggy, whip and top - and

rituals such as Mischief Night and April

Fool’s Day fail these days to gather the

enthusiasm they once had. This is not

surprising. Television, computer games, the

rise of the individual citizen in preference to

community activities, all such elements of

‘progress’ have contributed to such a demise.

All the more credit, therefore, to those locally

who still perform the play. Rochdale’s

Curtain Theatre have recently put on

performances, Middleton has a Pace Egg

group and there are traditional Pace Egg

plays in the Calder Valley’s Todmorden,

Hebden Bridge and Heptonstall on Good

Friday every year. Long may they continue!

If you have any memories of or

comments about Pace Egg in

Rochdale, I’d be delighted to hear

from you and add them to a growing

Rochdale archive on the subject.

Milnrow Library Walk and Talk Group

A SHORT WALK TO WELCOME IN SPRING

There is no better incentive than

to get out into the countryside

now that Spring has arrived.

An easy circular walk around Lower Ogden

and Hough Fold is recommended. To get to

the starting point, hop on the No 451

or 462 bus that travels through Milnrow and

Newhey Villages and terminates at

Peppermint Bridge. The walk can be muddy

and therefore slippy in places; there is also

a moderate inclined stretch, and a stile to

negotiate, so wear good walking boots or

shoes, and clothing suitable for the weather

conditions. A walking pole and mobile phone

are worth taking.

The Route

From the bus terminus cross over and

proceed up A640 Huddersfield Road with

the Piethorne Brook on your left. Go beyond

the entrance to Woodside then take the next

footpath, left, (signposted) over the bridge

spanning the brook. Follow the stone sett

footpath through the wooded glade and

along by the brook with the Piethorne Valley

Camping Site over to the right. Look out for

Dippers and Grey Heron along the brook and

two waterfalls, before the path emerges onto

Rough Bank Lane opposite P W Greenhalgh

Works. Proceed left up to the stone sett

lane. (signposted Bridleway). This is a steep

inclined section so take your time and be

aware of possible vehicular traffic. As the

lane bears left, take the junction right, along

the stone sett path that leads to Ogden

Reservoir. Proceed over a stile, then right

through a gap in the wall and down a narrow

steep path that leads onto the reservoir

banking. Here is a good view of the reservoir

with the tree plantation and hills beyond.

A suitable photo location.

Proceed along the reservoir bank, down the

steps at the end; turn right along Ogden

Lane, past Foulwater Lodge, and the Burial

Ground. To the left is Lane Bottom and the

Bulls Head Pub and Restaurant, which is an

ideal place for refreshments.

46

To advertise call 07976 289967 or 07974 434793 or email sales@streetwisemag.co.uk


Our walk continues right down Ogden Lane,

past P W Greenhalgh Works, to the junction

with the A640 Huddersfield Road. Look out

for a Stone Circle over the wall to your right.

At this junction take great care crossing

Huddersfield Road because of the blind

bend in the road, and go down Bethany Lane,

an ancient highway. Proceed along this

bridleway with a view to the right of Newhey

Quarry and St Thomas Church. Pass the

cottages at Barnard, and at Bethany Farm

follow the lane right emerging at Haugh

Hamlet. At Haugh Fold we come to the

Cedar Tree Restaurant, another suitable

refreshment stop. Here our route takes us,

right, up North Parade. On the left before the

last bungalow, take the single width footpath,

designated Mill Footpath No 364. Go along

this footpath through the wooded area, with

the Quarry in the distance and Piethorne

Brook to the left, emerging back at our

destination Peppermint Bridge Terminus.

This walk is about 2 miles and should be

comfortably completed in 2 hours,

allowing for photo stops, refreshments,

stops to admire the views, and in good time

to catch the return bus. Note Bus Timetables

are available at Milnrow Library.

OUR GROUP

If you feel you want to get out more

often for a walk in the local

countryside, then come along to our

weekly Walk and Talk Group. Our

walks are designed for people of all

abilities and ages, who wish to gain

the health benefits, both physical and

mental, from walking in a safe and

social group. Based at Milnrow Library

we meet every Monday (except Bank

Holidays) from 9.30am leaving out at

10am. It is free and friendly and led by

Volunteer Walk Leaders.

Springhill Hospice 30th Anniversary

with Robert Clegg

This year marks 30 years since

Springhill Hospice opened its doors.

In those 30 years the Hospice has

developed a standard in Hospice

care like no other and is quite

unique in its approach.

The journey began in the early 1980s when

its founder, Margaret Geoghegan, saw there

was a need in the Borough for a Hospice.

What she did next would create a legacy that

the people of Rochdale and beyond holds

close to their hearts 30 years on. She was at

the forefront of the whole appeal to create a

facility for end of life care in Rochdale.

The Hospice opened on the 8th October

1989. Since then Springhill has grown and

developed with its own education suite, Day

Hospice and Community Nursing Service.

It also has a line of local retail shops, its own

lottery and its very own café, “Coffee at

the Craven”, all helping to support its

important work.

Robert Clegg, Chair

of the Board of

Trustees at Springhill

Hospice, has been

part of the Springhill

journey since its

beginnings. We spoke

to him about his time

working with the

Hospice.

How did you become involved

in Springhill?

Rochdale. My boss at the time was

Secretary of the Appeal Committee who

Margaret Geoghegan had gathered together

to raise the funds to build and equip this

new facility. When he left in 1986 I took

his place.

“I wrote hundreds of letters to large charities

seeking external funding and remember

being really excited when a cheque for

£25,000 arrived. Locally the Rochdale

Observer took up the cause and

encouraged people to fundraise and every

week published a list of donations that had

been received.

“Slowly but surely the £1.5 million needed

to pay for the building, furnish and equip

it, and the first three months running costs

had been raised and the doors opened in

October 1989.”

Over the past 30 years and before the

Hospice was even built there has always been

support from the public and local businesses.

Thankfully this support shows no sign of

slowing down with continued backing from

the people of Rochdale and beyond in their

fundraising endeavours.

What are your memories of the

fundraising and events over the

years?

“In the early 1980s I was the Hospital “We have been very lucky to employ some

Secretary at Birch Hill Hospital. I learned incredibly talented fundraisers each of whom

early of the plans to build a Hospice for have brought their own style to the job.

48

We have hosted events such as, musical

events at Champnes Hall, Last Night of the

Proms at Honresfeld, our Man and Woman

of the Year events, Golf Days. There have

been so many.

“One event I particularly remember was

watching people walking on hot coals on the

car park at Rochdale Football Ground – I

took my hat off to them – but did not take my

shoes off! On a very personal note, winning

the “Wit of Year” dinner in 1997 was very

enjoyable- not winning the “Wit of Wits” in

2001 was less so.”

Being involved with the Hospice since before

it opened its doors, Robert has been a part

of some of the most memorable moments in

Springhill’s history.

What memories stand out to

you from the last 30 years at

the Hospice?

“There have been so many happy memories,

some of the ones stand out to me includes

the sod cutting in preparation for the building

works right at the beginning of the Hospice

journey, along with the arrival of our first

patients. The official opening by the Princess

Royal was a very special event, as were the

visits by the Duchess of Norfolk and later the

Duchess of Gloucester who joined us for

our 25th anniversary.”

It has been an eventful 30 years for the

Hospice. Its staff, volunteers and Robert

have been at the forefront of the changes,

developments and achievements that have

had such a positive impact on people from

across the Borough.

What are you most proud of

from your time at the Hospice?

“I am proud of the fact that as a result of the

work of Margaret Geoghegan we have been

able for 30 years to provide a really good

service for the people of Rochdale. I am truly

proud to have been a member of a very large

team of staff and volunteers that has made

Springhill Hospice what it is today and to

know what a massive difference we have

made for literally thousands of our patients

and their families in the last 30 years.”

Milnrow and terminates at Milnrow Memorial Park

for a Summer Fete.

Milnrow Brass Band will lead the parade with

local schools are once again supporting the event

along with pre-schools and many local groups

with a number of exciting new entries. The theme

this year will be ‘At the Movies’.

Milnrow

Church

receives

£10,000

lottery boost

St James War Memorial

restoration underway for

centenary celebration.

Parishioners at St James Church are

celebrating a £10,000 grant award from

the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Accessing funds from the First World

War: Then and Now programme, the

money will go towards the restoration

of the memorial which was built 100

years ago. Cllr Andy Kelly said “This is a

fantastic boost to the heritage of our

area. The monument in the church yard

is the village memorial to those lost in the

Great War. In recent years, the memorial

and its surrounding area and paths have

fallen into disrepair. The project will not

only restore an important local asset

but opens the heritage up to a wider

audience.”

The restoration will also repair pathways

and chain fencing, deliver education

sessions with the primary school,

create a guide book and interpretation,

and hold open days to involve more

people in the heritage. A reopening and

celebration day is also planned.
