NURSES BRAVE THE SHAVE

FOR COLLEAGUE

Two of the Katharine House Nursing Team are braving

the shave in support of a colleague and to raise funds

for Katharine House and Cancer Research UK.

Jane Reeves Ford and Jenny Cowley will be shaving their

heads on 1 June in support of Julia Gartside-Bentley who

also works at Katharine House as Discharge Liaison Nurse.

Julia who has worked at the hospice since 2003 was

diagnosed with cancer in January 2020 and has lost her hair

due to several rounds of chemotherapy.

Julia says … I have known Jane and Jenny as wonderful

colleagues and friends since they started working at the

hospice. Working alongside we have laughed, cried and

supported each other through some very difficult times

and always been there, in and out of work. I have been very

emotional thinking what they are doing to support me and

so many others, as well as raising awareness and much

needed funds for two charities very close to mine and my

families hearts.

Jane says … We are both a little apprehensive but to be

honest, more excited at the prospect of no lengthy hair

styling or bad hair days! On a more serious note our lovely

friend and colleague Julia has no choice as her hair was

just taken away … during another round of chemotherapy.

Hair is a woman’s crowning glory and for many of us helps

determine who we are.

I cannot imagine having

that taken away without

choice. If by doing this

challenge we can help support

the emotional and psychological

side to this horrible disease, and raise

very much needed funds for both charities,

then it is a very small price to pay.

The Nurses Headshave Challenge will take place at

Katharine House on 1st June 2022.

Anyone wishing to support Jane and Jenny can do so here

https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/jane-jennys-big-headshave.

Sponsor forms are also available from fundraising@

khhospice.org.uk

Katharine House Hospice provides free care

and support for adults and their families who

are coping with progressive illness across Mid-

Staffordshire. It relies upon the kindness of the

local community to help generate over 75%

of the funds needed to run its vital range of

services.

CELEBS DESCEND ON PENKRIDGE

FOR JUBILEE FESTIVAL!

D Day Darlings, Black Lace,

Wynne Evans The Go Compare

Man, plus many more. An

exciting event is being held at

the Monckton Sports and

Social ground in Penkridge for

the Queens Jubilee weekend

(1-5th June) and the line up is

getting us in the mood for a

party!

It’s going to be a jam-packed event

with music taste for all ages; from

80’s and 90’s, to soul and rock.

Black Lace will be getting us all

doing the conga, and Wynne

Evans (“the Go! Compare man”)

will be showing off his vocal range.

We even have time for some

patriotic celebrations with the

D-Day Darlings here on the

Sunday, fresh from their live

performance on Britain’s Got

Talent that same weekend!

The event is being run and

produced by local company Jon

Smith Entertainment Services

(JSES), and this is their third time

hosting this event. Managing

director Jon Smith said,

“After a tough few years for the

entertainment industry, we want

to come back strong. This is a

great opportunity for a

celebration, and where better to

hold it than in our local

community? I grew up in

Staffordshire, attending school in

Penkridge and now my company

is based in Wolverhampton, but

sends tours and shows all over the

world! We believe it’s important to

give back, and that’s why all the

profits from this show will be

going to local charities.”

The charities he’s planning on

donating to are the Midlands Air

Ambulance, Penkridge and

District First responders, and the

Monckton Committee and Litter

Pickers, amongst others. These

charities have been chosen as

they support the local community

and the event, but also have

attended to the company in their

time of need. Sadly in October

2021, one of the casual engineers

and Open Air Stage Managers for

JSES, Rupert Jones (35) was taken

ill during show rehearsals at the

company’s Wolverhampton venue

and tragically passed away, an

incident which was attended by

the Midlands Air Ambulance. One

of the stages this year has been

named in Mr Jones’ honour, and

we know he would have been

working hard to support this

event again this year.

Amongst the well known names,

there will also be award winning

tribute acts, covering the songs

of Queen, ABBA, Oasis, Take That,

and Dolly Parton, and the list

continues! Traders and vendors

will set up a small village in

between the stages, and its set

to be a great weekend for all the

family.

The event would love to see you

there; tickets and information can

be found by searching Penkridge

Open Air to find the website,

Facebook, and Instagram. Tickets

are limited so don’t wait till the

last minute as last years event

sold out!

Romeo and Juliet

AT STAFFORD CASTLE THIS SUMMER!

The grounds of Stafford Castle are being

transformed into Renaissance Italy for this year’s

landmark Stafford Shakespeare production,

ROMEO + JULIET.

A huge 25-metre stage is being built, complete with

trapdoors, moving sets and hidden entrances for the

30th anniversary production.

A new seating layout will bring the audience closer

than ever to the action, which takes place between

warring families in Verona.

Award-winning set designer Morgan Brind

Madeleine Leslay

Almost 6,000 tickets have already been snapped

up for the run from June 24 to July 9, with several

performances already sold out.

The open-air play stars Madeleine Leslay from BBC

Radio’s The Archers as Juliet, Tom Lane as Romeo,

Tom Vaughan as Tybalt and comedian Gill Jordan

(better known as Doreen Tipton) as The Nurse.

Gill Jordan, better known as Doreen Tipton

Marketing manager Keith Harrison said: ‘There’s

always so much work that goes into designing and

building the set, but this one – designed by awardwinning

Morgan Brind - is at a new level.

‘It will surprise people throughout the play as the

tragic love story unfolds and new elements are

revealed. The music will also raise a few eyebrows

and it all adds to the occasion.

‘It’s the 30th anniversary production and we want to

make sure that the whole experience is worthy of

such a landmark occasion.

‘Having missed two years due to Covid, we’ve

taken the opportunity to review and reboot the

Stafford Shakespeare production, with a host of

improvements on stage and off.

‘Working with Boutique Events, the outside events

arm of The Post House Bar and Grill, the bar and

catering options are better than they have ever been

and we’re excited to see people trying out something

completely different up at the castle this year.’

Director Tim Ford said: ‘We’re delighted with the cast

we have assembled and we can’t wait to get started

on rehearsals.

Gill Jordan

Tom Lane

‘The set is looking great and we’ve already done lots

of work behind the scenes. After two years away, it

feels like there’s this great build-up of energy that we

are geared up to unleash at the end of June.

‘It helps that it’s a brilliant, brilliant play with so many

quotes and phrases that are instantly recognisable

today. The Stafford productions have never been

elitist; they’re for everyone and we want as many

people as possible to come along and enjoy a

memorable night out in such a fantastic setting.’

Tickets for the show are priced at £35.00 (£32.00

concessions) and are available from The Gatehouse

Theatre Box Office on 01785 619080 or

PENKRIDGE WI

Our new president Vicky Atkins welcomed

members and guests. She introduced Karen

Sulway, a trustee of Staffordshire WI. who was

there to present two certificates. Firstly, to our

outgoing President Sandra Bailey celebrating

her 50 years as a member of Penkridge WI and

secondly, to commemorate Penkridge WI’s 100th

birthday last year.

To put these events into perspective, Karen reminded

us that when Sandra joined 50 years ago, there were

no computers, no DNA and no bar codes, to mention

just a few, and a hundred years ago, Marconi had just

produced experimental radio and women were being

admitted to Oxford University for the first time!

Our speaker was Glynis Myles. Her presentation,

‘Signing with Singles’, was a fun talk using British Sign

Language. She explained how, when she was working

with children with learning difficulties twenty years

ago, she realised that not all children or adults could

read and therefore needed a simplified sign language.

She started using a method with one sign at a time

whereby children

could communicate

by singing and

signing.

Having shown us some

examples, she gave each

of us a card representing an

article of clothing which we then

demonstrated in turn thus creating

a simple short story. We ended the evening by signing

to the songs Delilah, Sweet Caroline and You Raise me

Up. It was a truly informative and inspiring evening,

enjoyed by everyone.

Our next meeting is on Monday 6th June, and we are

really looking forward to meeting “Rosie and friends”

from the Hedgehog Preservation Society with Joan

Lockley.

As ever new members are always welcome. Come

and join us at 7:30pm in the Methodist Church Hall,

Penkridge.

Authentic Cornish

Pasty

Introduction

A Cornish pasty is one of those things we almost

always buy, yet in baking terms the concept is

really very simple. After all, this was a homebaking

staple for the tin miners of Cornwall, with

its thick crust ready to be disposed of, so ensuring

dirty hands wouldn’t contaminate the meat.

Delicious, wholesome, and able to be added to

vegetables or salad to form a main meal, the

pasty really is one of my favourites.

Ingredients

(serves 5)

For the pastry

• 450g plain flour

• salt

• 115g cold lard, diced

• 75g cold unsalted butter,

diced

• About 90ml ice-cold water

• 1 egg, lightly beaten, to

glaze

For the filling

• 1 large onion

• 120g swede

• 1 large floury potato, such

as King Edward or Maris

Piper

• 400g beef skirt

• 50g butter

• Salt and pepper to season

Method

1. To make the pastry, mix

the flour and salt in a large

bowl, add the lard and butter

and rub in with your fingertips

until the mixture resembles

breadcrumbs. Stir in enough

water to make a fairly firm

dough, then knead briefly until

smooth. Shape into a ball, wrap

in cling film and chill for at least

30 minutes.

2. Now move on to the filling,

slicing the onion finely to start.

Cut the swede and potato into

small, thin strips; keep each

separate. Cut the beef into

small, thin pieces and divide

into five portions.

3. Heat the oven to 200°C/Gas

mark 6. Divide the pastry into

five equal pieces. Roll each out

on a lightly floured surface to

a 3mm thickness and cut out a

24cm circle, using a plate as a

guide.

4. Scatter a scant layer of

swede on the pastry semicircle,

leaving a 1cm border.

Add a similar layer of potato,

season lightly and top with

some onion. Repeat the swede

and potato layers, seasoning

as you go. Check the pasty will

close, then add the beef. Add a

final layer of onion, season and

dot with butter.

5. Brush the pastry border with

a little beaten egg, then close

the lid of the pasty, making

sure that the edges meet. Press

together firmly and then crimp

the edges together by pinching

all the way round between your

thumb and forefinger.

6. Fill and seal the remaining

circles of pastry in the same

way. Place the pasties on two

baking trays and cut two small

slits in the middle of each one.

Brush the pastry with beaten

egg. Bake for 20 minutes,

then lower the oven setting to

160°C/Gas mark 3 and bake for

30 minutes longer.

SLIMMING WORLD PENKRIDGE

JOIN YOUR LOCAL GROUP TODAY

Slimming World was founded by Margaret

Miles-Bramwell OBE in Derbyshire in 1969 and has

become the UK and Ireland’s leading weight loss

organisation with more people choosing to attend

a Slimming World group each week than any other

weight loss programme. We support hundreds of

thousands of people, both in our groups and online,

to lose weight and to adopt new habits to stay slim

for life.

Over the years our founding principles haven’t

changed:

and also highly satisfying while limiting foods that

are highest in fat and sugar and are less satisfying,

so they lose weight without ever feeling hungry or

deprived and without having to weigh, measure or

count everything they eat.

• Our activity programme, Body Magic helps

members to overcome any barriers around activity.

Members choose when to start and they set the

pace, finding activities they genuinely enjoy, until

regular physical activity becomes an intrinsic part of

their daily routine.

• Our unique programme is based on a powerfully

motivating support system called IMAGE (Individual

Motivation and Group Experience) Therapy.

Underpinned by a deep understanding of the

psychology of overweight people, and incorporating

the most effective sustainable behaviour change

techniques, IMAGE Therapy is designed to inspire

and motivate slimmers to make positive changes

and to develop new, healthier habits around food

and activity.

• Food Optimising is our healthy eating plan, based

on the liberating concept of Free Food. We encourage

our members to fill up on those foods that are

naturally lower in energy density (calories per gram)

At the heart of everything we do lies our passion for

treating every member with genuine care, empathy

and respect.

We’re proud to work with the NHS, the Office for

Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), The

Royal College of Midwives and others to help shape

the future of weight management in the UK and

Ireland.

Co-incidentally, on the day of Russia’s Victory Day

Parade, Probus members enjoyed an interesting talk

by Janet Martin, whose father was a British Spy

during the Cold War.

Janet’s father was fluent in several languages including

Turkish and Russian. He often spent months in Turkey

and regularly carried dispatches between London and our

Embassy in Ankara. We were intrigued to learn that the

dispatch case as securely attached to his person had an

explosive device that triggered and destroyed the contents

if anyone tried to remove it. The courier would surely

suffer too!

During the Cold War, he was in charge of a radio listening

post on the Black Sea coast opposite Ukraine. The brief

was to monitor Russian military communications. On one

occasion a group of Chinese “tourists” equipped with

cameras came to the area to take numerous “holiday

photos.”

Dates for your diary are our next meeting is a social

visit on Wednesday 29th June to Harvington Hall near

Chaddesley Corbet.

STAFFORDSHIRE CENTRE SPONSORS

SHUGBOROUGH BOOKSHOP

The Staffordshire Centre is a group of National

Trust members who fundraise to support local Trust

properties – specifically Shugborough - and was

delighted to be sponsors of the new bookshop when it

opened. Nationally, bookshops raised £1.5 million for

the Trust last year. This is its story – so far.

In late 2018, the old storeroom was renovated by a

volunteer project team and new bookshelves installed.

There were no books to sell so requests were placed on

the Shugborough Facebook page. The Staffordshire Centre

sent out requests to all members for book donations. Those

members actually donated more than 2,000 books in the

first two months!

The shop opened in March 2019 and was an instant

success. In that first year the sales total was a remarkable

£38,400, astonishing when the two price levels were £1.50

for a paperback and £2.50 for a hardback. This was due to

the efforts of the Shugborough volunteers who ensure the

bookshop is manned every day.

For obvious reasons 2020 was not a good year for the

bookshop! Lockdown closed the shop and when it reopened

towards the end of September it was only open for a matter

of weeks before a second lockdown closed it again, this time

until mid-April 2021. Despite that fact the sales figure for

the year March 2021 to February 2022, was £37,500.

collectable books held

in a cabinet that was

donated by the Centre

and installed in October

2021. David Goacher, Lead

Volunteer for the bookshop,

has thanked the Centre for its

commitment and hopes that support

continues for the future.

Shugborough’s general manager, Hayley Mival said “Last

year we used the money raised by the bookshop as match

funding to unlock a bigger grant which together then paid

for the repairs and redecoration of the Tower of the Winds.

This is a brilliant example as to how one donation (to set

the bookshop up), leads to a bigger amount raised (the

bookshop income), leads to a bigger grant that makes such

a big difference to conservation and what we are able to

achieve on the estate, keeping Shugborough special for

ever.”

This year the revenue will contribute to the restoration of

the Chinese House, shown in the picture.

To keep up with our future events in support of the Trust

watch out for us in these pages or check out our Events

pages at https://www.ntstafford.org.uk/

THE IMPORTANCE OF CANALS TO U.K.

CANNOCK AND DISTRICT LADIES PROBUS CLUB

A very enthusiastic Tim Burgen enlightened Ladies

of Cannock and District Probus Club to the era when

Canals developed in U.K. and the impact this had on

transport and communities.

Involved for 30 years with Inland Waterways Association,

who maintain and restore canals, Tim as speaker,

explained the history of why there are two sizes of

barges even today and it makes for a non-unified

system. Unlike rivers, canals are dug, usually by Navvies

(often drunk) and needed to be lined with clay, normally

trampled by cattle to make them watertight.

Francis Egerton, 3rd Duke of Bridgewater returned from

a grand tour in 1770’s and with two other partners,

wanted to construct the first modern British Canal in

Manchester. This later inspired merchants and, as with

all good ideas, a meeting in the pub led to a committee,

to form the Liverpool to Leeds canal. Obstacles of The

Pennines; building costs £200,000; local disagreements

by changing communities meant each side stopped

digging after 63 miles! Developments in transport could

mean reducing coal process up to 40% but after cash

ran out, an Act of Parliament was needed in 1791 to

raise funds. A re-survey also meant the Liverpool to

Leeds canal was re-routed.

We learnt how local canals developed but progress of

this system of transport was

impacted by wars with USA

and France. Cargo varied

dependent upon area and

boat:- cheese travelled from

farms daily; pottery from

Wedgewood as 95% goods

remained intact compared to

60% by road; coal; limestone and even manure (pre

sewerage systems). Horses were used to pull barges

along towpaths, while whole families lived on barges.

Canals are still enjoyed these days but instead of

the heavy industry of tons of cargo; now by those

appreciating a more leisurely pace of life, whilst people

‘walk’ local towpaths and enthusiasts meet at canal

events and festivals.

Two visitors, together with new probus members,

shared an enjoyable meal at Chase Golf Club and Sheila

Burrows, as Chairman, reminded our next meeting is

16th June ‘22 (Not normal 1st Thursday of month due

to Queen’s Celebrations). Should anyone wish to join

for friendship, a meal at 12pm for 12:30pm and share

interesting speakers. For further information contact:
