  • 3. Dear Friends,Christmas seems a long time ago. The Christmas decorations arepacked away for another year and we are back to ‘normal’. Weare struggling with miserable weather that dampens our heartsand the economic news is not too bright either.However, Christmas reminded us that God is with us (Emmanuel),but not just for one day, or a short festive season, but everyday.Our next great celebration is Easter, and Lent starts this month.Yes, we are given another time and opportunity to reflect.The two festivals together remind us that God’s love for us is be-yond our understanding. This Lent we are concentrating on thewonderful blessings we have in Christ. Indeed, our church prayerfor 2013 is a prayer from Ephesians 3 that we‘may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep the love of Christ, and toknow this love that surpasses knowledge—that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.’Once we realize deep within our hearts this love, everything istransformed. We have purpose, confidence, joy and hope enoughto change the greyness of our lives into glorious ‘technicolour’.Every note of birdsong seems brighter, every sign of God’s work increation takes our breath away with its beauty and our relation-ships are deepened by God’s love in our lives.With prayers for every blessing,Rev. Vicky FlemingPriest in Charge. towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 3

  • 9. Gone With The WindL ast year saw 5 parish councils and well over 800 Swindon residents react to a Planning Department document that pointed to areas, including Highworth, Hannington, South Marston, Tadpole Farm and the eastern villages of Wanborough and Liddington as areasappropriate for wind turbines. In response, the residents and local parishcouncils asked that the Local Plan should define a minimum separationdistance between any proposed wind turbines and residential housing.Hopes were raised when Councillor Dale Heenan, speaking of the LocalPlan, said ‘the specific wording is still being discussed but I wouldn’t besurprised if it includes separation distances of 1km’. In the event, and de-spite Dale Heenan’s best intentions, the Planning Department’s views pre-vailed and the proposed Development Plan does not include a minimumseparation distance.Ill Wind, a group of local residents, successfully opposed a planning appli-cation for wind turbines overlooking Stratton and South Marston. Theywere concerned about the growing evi-dence about impacts on health, disturb-ance from noise and shadow flicker andthe damaging effects on neighbourhoodsthat would be overlooked by giant movingstructures of a size that would dwarf anybuilding currently in Swindon.Ill Wind are urging Swindon residents whodon’t want to live to close to wind tur-bines to voice their objections to the anti-democratic way the Local Plan is bypassingthe consultation process and being rail-roaded through to a February 21st dead-line.If you are interested, and want to help, visit their website,illwind.co.uk, for more details. towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 9
  • 10. The Friendly Club The T&T Editorial team are very sorry that due to production problems the December/January report was not included in the issued document so here it is now. Past & Recent Events Tuesday 13th November A talk was given by Alan Fletcher on “Guide dogs for the blind”. He brought his dog Joy with him, which he has had for over six years. He and his wife, Shirley informed us how, from the first steps of puppy selection, to the train- ing of the dogs and people, who are to be recipients of a dog, are carried out. It was very informative and we were made aware of the hard work the many volunteers do to make the whole system work. There is a high cost, covered mainly by donations, to reach this final achievement of a fully trained working dog. Tuesday 11th December – Christmas lunch Our Christmas Lunch for club members was held at the Barrington Arms Hotel. Entertainment by Ken & Steve with popular songs and Christmas car- ols. It was a pleasant afternoon. 45 members attended Tuesday 18th December – Christmas Concert at South Marston School. The school entertained members with their Christmas Concert supervised by Alison. All age groups of the children were involved in the performance. They all did well and are commended for their effort. Thanks also to the staff who were involved in making the production. We gave Alison best wishes in her new appointment. Tuesday 8th January A talk was given by Lynda Warren on the topic, The Wartime Kitchen. This explored some of the problems and unusual happenings in the war years that people had to cope with, some being funny, others being more serious. Items such as evacuation of children and the outcome of this event were discussed. Due to food supply issues many very strange recipes were created by the gov- ernment and food writers. Copies of some were given to members to try!!!10 http://southmarston.org.uk

Continued from page 1It also makes general policy points, for instance on renewable energy, wherethe Parish Council share the concerns of Ill Wind that large wind turbines maybe making a return in specific areas highlighted in the Local PlanThe Parish Council will be making submissions on behalf of the village, but weencourage all villagers to read this document and put in their responses to theBorough Council direct before the 21st February deadline.The Parish Council Expansion Sub Committee continues to work on the SouthMarston village Planning Document (known as the SPD or supplementary plan-ning document). This is supplemental to the Local plan and so is bound by themore general statements in it. The developers are now expected to concen-trate on the area North of the A420, although they tell us that there is consid-erable technical work still to be done. Our current plan, in line with SwindonBC, is to finalise the SPD so that it can go to Public Consultation in the Springand then go on to be adopted as part of the Local Plan. It would then have tobe respected by any future application for development.If you would like to become involved with this planning process and would liketo find out how to do so, then please contact the Parish Clerk on 01793820529.

  • 20. AN AGEING POPULATION: SO WHAT’S NEW?T he Swindon Older Peoples Forum (SOPF) has only been in existence since November 2011 but the need for an independent voice for older people within the Borough could not be more pressing. Whilst SOPF does not engage in special pleading, it does champion the need forolder people to have an equal voice in matters that affect their everyday livesand seek to combat ageism and promote a positive image of all older people.The portrayal of older people as simply a burden is an, albeit unintentional, em-phasis articulated by the Council in its “Big Conversation” publicity. We there-fore thought it necessary to point out this insensitivity via the following article,which, is a view also expressed in a recent speech by the outgoing Archbishopof Canterbury.T he human population has always been ageing and average age and life expectancy has been slowly, but steadily, rising for centuries. Its part of a world that includes a number of predictable trends. All we need do is regularly adjust to these trends incrementally and in accordance withan appropriate indicator; e.g. just as pensions are regularly adjusted in accord-ance with the retail price index, so pensionable age might be adjusted in accord-ance with the overall expectation of life.failures on to seniors. For those who point the finger of blame, or contribute tothe debate from a one dimensional, solely financial standpoint, there is no harmin reminding them that the over 50’s hold 80% of the nation’s personal assetsand wealth and represent the major proportion of the voting population.Old age may be situated at the other extreme from youth but being old is notbeing ill. Life can be as full of value and delight, of incident and insight as it is fora 20 year old. This is not to deny the need for compassionate societies to pro-vide support mechanisms but neither should it be viewed as a race to retire-ment when individuals suddenly get shifted from an asset to a burden, and wit-ness the door slammed on a wealth of wisdom and experience.So let’s recognise that old age may not be a bed of roses but as we are all goingthere, let’s fix it so we enjoy the journey. If you can empathies with this stance,why not join us? For more information contact Dave Browndave.abrown@btinternet.com or Tel: 01793 612037.The full article is available on the South Marston website.
