READY, SET, GO!

PENKRIDGE ROUND TABLE RUN’S A SUCCESS

Following years of cancellations due to Covid

restrictions, the Penkridge Round Table Fun Run

and Fun Day took place on Sunday 10th July.

The team from the registered charity descended on

the Haling Dene Centre in Penkridge at 6:30 in the

morning, working hard to get the site ready for the

runners to collect their registration packs from 9am.

This year on site security was provided by the North

Staffs Stormtroopers Garrison. They made sure the

registration rules and procedures were followed to

the letter.

the best dressed prize was winner Amy Johnson

as a T-Rex, completing the sweltering distance in

a respectable time of 25:38. Amy is running the

London Marathon this year and is raising money

for the Whizz Kids Charity. Penkridge Round Table

could think of no better prize than a £250 donation

to the cause. If you’d like to donate to Amy’s fund

you can do so here: https://www.justgiving.com/

fundraising/A-Johnson8 Sensibly, Amy will not be

running the marathon in costume!

The number of runners was lower than the previous

event in 2019, but you wouldn’t have known it from

the atmosphere. At 10:45am the runners assembled

and were led through the warmup routine by Teresa

Hallchurch and some of the nimbler Stormtroopers.

At 11am, fresh from the Britain’s Got Talent finals,

amateur comedian Eva Abley started the race.

Powered by the shouts and cheers of the crowd the

runners swiftly ran up the field and out of the Haling

Dene.

Adding to the challenge of the fun-run course, was

the heat from one of the hottest days of the year.

Fortunately, the Penkridge residents came to the

rescue spraying hoses along the route to help the

runners keep cool.

Following the completion of the run, the Fun Day

started.

First place was Tyler Hawley, from Birchfield Harriers,

with a very impressive time of 13:36. After that, the

runners arrived back quickly, chased by a T-Rex, an

alien abductee, Trolls and many more characters

entering the fancy dress competition.

Holding back a number of worthy contenders for

Stalls opened providing food, treats, tricks and

tests of strength and skill. Sounds of magic and

laughter provided by entertainment specialist

‘aBagOfFun’ carried over the field as the crowd

was kept enthralled for a delightful hour. Then the

Stormtroopers took over, and trophies were given

out to first second and third place in each of the

categories.

Closing the event was Fun Day favourites, Dene

Dance School. Who despite the challenging heat,

provided a flawless set of routines.

Planning has already begun for the 2023 event which

looks set to be even bigger and better!

Summer Scorchers

How to revive your garden after the long hot summer.

Water well

Water will stimulate stems, fire

up flowers and galvanise grass,

but moderation is the key, and as

we’ve all experienced in the past,

overwatering is just as bad as

underwatering.

So take an organised route to

regular hydration in the garden, and

gradually bring things back to life.

Nothing but a dirty grass

Remove debris and dust to make

the land as ready for replenishment

as possible, with simple clearing

away of organic residue exposing

the ground to moisture and

sunlight aplenty. And if you have

a composting area then all these

swept-away bits can be used to

bolster what will become a fertile

store for flower beds.

Cut back to move forward

The more you mow, trim and

prune, the quicker your

greenery will spring back

to life, so while a worthy

exercise for the flora and

fauna of your garden,

you’ll undoubtedly feel

enthused and enlightened

at the renewed space you’ve

created.

First-class fertiliser

The best way

to boost growth

where your

living matter is

concerned is with

an approved, highquality

fertiliser.

Research well and

choose a fertiliser that matches

your environmental conscience,

remembering not to apply until

growth is already well on its way, or

you’ll simply end up scorching the

earth.

Starting

afresh

And of

course, the

best way

to get your

garden humming again is to invest

in it.

Consider plants, flowers and other

additions that will suit the rustic

autumn season to come.

agricultural shows. The herd

have the freedom to graze the

lush pastures of the Sow River

meadow ground at Tixall, making

the milk extra creamy and tasty.

The Wright family and the Bower

Family have been farming

neighbours for three generations

and already had a working

relationship, and both families

share the same ethos and

CANNOCK SOROPTIMISTS

THE REGENERATION OF CANNOCK TOWN CENTRE

Cannock Soroptimists are enjoying sharing

the Presidency and organisation of their year

with the theme “We’re all in it together”. This

month’s speaker meeting was organised by

and presided over by member Adrienne Hewitt,

who introduced Olivia Lyons, Leader of Cannock

Chase Council and herself a Soroptimist, who

gave a presentation about the Regeneration of

Cannock town centre.

Soroptimists were delighted by all that they saw and

heard; one of the things Olivia talked about was the

demolition of the multi-storey car park, which has

become an eyesore over the last few years. This area

will become central to the regeneration plans.

There is a £44million

investment in

Cannock town centre

which allows the

Council the opportunity to

transform it and reverse its

decline.

Plans include a new cultural hub, cinema, enhanced

theatre, office space, cafe and restaurants and

improved connectivity to the town centre.

Olivia also talked about the former Rugeley power

station – there are exciting plans for that space - and

the wonderful success of the designer outlet. And

of course, she was also delighted to mention the

Commonwealth Games Mountain Bike event being

held in Cannock Chase, and how proud we all are to

have this in our area.

Further details about Soroptimists, the work they do

and how you may be able to join a meeting can be

Rainer Becker’s Seared

Tuna on a bed of spicy red

onions, with a chilli ponzu

sauce and fried garlic

Introduction

Germany-born Rainer Becker honed his craft in

Tokyo before making his name in London with the

celebrated Japanese restaurant Zuma.

I didn’t have the inspiration of a famous chef to become

one myself. I think when I first helped my mum, I probably

was six or seven years old. I didn’t know anything about cooking,

so the inspiration came really from the products.

I liked going in the garden, picking strawberries and cherries, and that

fascination went up another level when I discovered the incredible flavours and

tastes of Asia.

That’s why this spicy seared tuna recipe means so much to me – it combines so many intense yet

complementary flavours, and every time I cook this it transports me off to a different culture and

different place.

Ingredients

(serves 4)

For the tuna

• 800g tuna loin

• 500ml ponzu sauce

• 100g chilli daikon

• 80g spring onions – thinly

sliced

• 20g deep fried garlic

For the chilli braised red

onions

• 5 red onions

• 100ml soy sauce

• 100ml rice vinegar

• 100ml sake

• 60g caster sugar

• 12g ginger – finely

chopped

• 2 garlic cloves – thinly

chopped

• 1½ dried red chillies –

large (seeds removed)

Method

1. Cut the tuna into blocks,

season and sear in a very

hot pan with a little oil until

coloured. The tuna should be

raw apart from the outside

2-3mm. Place on a lined tray

and refrigerate.

For the onions, sweat off the

finely chopped garlic, ginger

and dried chillies for a few

moments, then add the sliced

red onions and cook till semitransparent.

2. Add the soy, sake, rice

vinegar and sugar and bring to

the boil, remove from the heat

and strain, then allow to cool

on trays. The onions should still

be al dente, spicy and a little

sweet.

3. Thinly slice the spring onions.

Fry off the sliced garlic till crisp

and golden brown and grate

the chilli daikon.

4. Place a pile of the spicy

onions in the centre of a salad

bowl, cut the tuna into slices

and roll up, then place six

rolled-up slices of tuna on the

onions in a pyramid shape.

Add a little chilli daikon to some

of the ponzu sauce and pour

over the tuna, garnish with the

fried garlic and sliced spring

onions. Finally, finish with a

small pile of extra chilli daikon.

CHASE ARTS FOR PUBLIC SPACES

AND LESLEY SMITH AS PEGGY KNIGHT

100 people were honoured to witness the incredible

portrayal of Peggy Knight, Special Operations Executive in

WW2, by Lesley Smith, Historian and curator of Tutbury

Castle. This was at an event organised by Chase Arts for

Public Spaces to raise funds to further enhance the site

where the National Miners’ Memorial stands at the NMA,

a project Lesley continues to generously support. Lesley

‘was’ Peggy – telling the story of her early childhood in

Paris, daughter of a Polish woman and an English soldier

who stayed in France after WW1, her move to the East

End of London, her training as a short hand typist and

work for the Electricity Board – before being asked “Do

you want to serve your country?” – all because she spoke

fluent French! Peggy’s answer was “Yes!”; she was sworn to

secrecy regarding what she might do, was trained – passing

every element with great skill – and after just one month

and at the age of 24 was parachuted behind enemy lines in

France where she was to work with the French Resistance.

Like many of her generation, at the end of the war, back in

Britain, she married, had children and rarely spoke about

her wartime exploits. She died in 2004; on her gravestone

are the words ‘Love Conquers All’.

Lesley portrayed Peggy’s bravery and vulnerability,

demonstrating the incredible research she had undertaken as

she knew intimately, it seemed, every minute detail of Peggy’s

life. So much of the story was emotional, perhaps none more

so than the time Lesley met Peggy’s son David who asked

her “Are you my Mom?” If there had been any dry eyes in

the house, there weren’t

then! Peggy was ultimately

decorated for her bravery

by the UK, USA and France –

an incredible achievement!

Thanks to the generosity of

everyone who attended and to those

who gave their time and talent to ensure the success of

the event, almost £1,300 was raised for which CHAPS is so

grateful.

There was added excitement when Lesley Smith invited

everyone to a fun day at Tutbury Castle on Saturday

10th September – her gift to all who have supported the

National Miners’ Memorial and in recognition of all who

worked in the UK coal industry. During the afternoon Lesley

will give presentations, accompanied by pictures, based

on her research into the lives of coal miners – particularly

women and children. CHAPS will be arranging market stalls

and entertainment – including Lea Hall Brass Band and

Ellise Locke Dance Group. Entrance is free but numbers are

required – please email info@chaseartsforpublicspaces.

co.uk or phone 07813 003286 to book your place and

receive your ticket. We’d love to see lots of you there!

LIFE IN THE FIFTIES

13th September

A Talk by Bill Durose

Do you remember what it was like in the fifties?

When TV was B&W and Radio Luxembourg was the

radio station of choice if you wanted to listen to

music recorded less than twenty years ago? When

we rock ’n rolled to the music of Elvis Presley and

the Everley Brothers.

And who could forget

Harry Rodger Webb?

People were just starting

to enjoy free health care with

the introduction of the newly

launched National Health Service. Kids

were going to school in their new school uniforms -

to experience the benefits (or otherwise) of the 11

plus exams, yearning for the day when they could

wear drainpipes, brothel creepers or winklepickers.

Bill Durose gives a talk illustrated with live music

and song about home life, education, health and

historical events in the nineteen fifties.

To keep up with our future events watch out for us in

these pages or check out our Events page at https://
