  1. 1. TOWER & TAPTOWER & TAPTOWER & TAPTOWER & TAP September 2013 SOUTH MARSTON’S COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER Jean Franklin 1938 – 2013 Jean was such a well-known character in South Marston. Born in Longcot to Ted and Lily Holcombe, she moved to South Marston at the age of 8 with her parents and brother Ray. She married Pat Franklin in 1961 at St Mary Magdalene church in the village and later moved to what became their family home in Highworth Road, where they lived for many years. Community was a way of life for Jean. She enjoyed coffee mornings, whist drives and keep fit classes, and was an ac-ve member of the WI in both South Marston and Stanton Fitzwarren. She took great pleasure in playing ski1les. Later on in life, she s-ll enjoyed flower arranging and being a member of the Friendly Club. For many years, Jean was an ac-ve member of South Marston Parish Council and especially of SMRA (South Marston Recrea-on Associa-on). She could be relied upon to be fully involved with the Summer Fete, Christmas Bazaar and 100 Club village lo1ery. She was also on the management commi1ee for the Village Hall and the Playing Field. Jean gradually withdrew from her community ac-vi-es in her last few years, but could s-ll be seen in the village, walking her dog. As her children said, “she was a lady who was never short of an opinion and never shy to give it but above all, a much-loved Mum and Nanny.” She will be much missed by all of us who knew her.

  3. 3. 3 Dear Friends, I hope you have enjoyed the good summer weather we have had this year! It has brought a li< to our steps a<er so much rain in the early part of the year. Holidays have brought rest and relaxa-on so that we can look forward to the Autumn days in good heart. Over the summer months we have also had opportuni-es to get closer to God and deepen our faith and understanding. The Amos studies brought much food for thought as we discovered lessons that history teaches us. When na-ons forget, or people forget God there are always consequences that are not always immediately apparent. We need to remember that all that we have comes from God, and that He longs to have a rela-onship with us. Our Oasis prayer events have proved to be special opportuni-es to hear and meditate on God’s word in such a way that transforms our lives. These -mes in close fellowship with our heavenly Father and each other have been truly amazing. God has certainly been answering our prayer for the church in 2013 that we might begin to grasp the dimensions of his love! Helen, our Curate, has organised another month’s Oasis mee-ngs for September and we plan to start Confirma-on classes for both adults and young people. I will be running another ‘Network’ course for those who felt they missed out when it was last held. Spending -me with God gives us so much. We find ourselves encouraged, supported, confident and assured of His love and this in turn is reflected in the way we live our lives. There is so much variety on offer, everyone is sure to find something to suit. We look forward to welcoming you as you join us! With prayers for every blessing, Vicky Fleming Priest in Charge

  7. 7. 7 Autumn Study Course ‘Network’ Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to know what God had called you to do? You could use this prayer… LORD, I really want to make a difference, but I’m not sure how to do it. Please give me the wisdom to know who you want me to be and where I can best make a contribu-on. Reveal to me my spiritual gi<s, my personal style, and my passion. Most of all, give me a servant’s heart. Help me to seek your will and authority, To have peace with my past, and to have confidence about my future. I want to follow the example you’ve set for me. Help me fulfil the special purpose you’ve designed me for. In Jesus’ name, Amen And you could come to our Network Course at the Rectory 8-9pm on Monday’s star-ng on 30th September - please book with Vicky as there is limited space and we need to order the study books! Quotes from people who have done the course: ‘One of the best courses I have done – it helps you to see what kind of person you are and what spiritual gi<s you have in an interes-ng and fun way. This is in turn will help each one on the course to know the best way to serve God in the body of Christ in the Stra1on Team ministry. Well worth doing and I would recommend it to everyone.’ “The Network course is challenging me to think again about my priori-es but also to celebrate who God has made me and my place in His Church. I feel I have come a long way in a few short weeks and got to know some of our Church family so much be1er. I’m excited about what this means for us going forward together.”
  8. 8. 8 S M A W L South Marston Assisting Wildlife Many thanks to all of our volunteers for their continued contributions SMAWL PUZZLE SMAWL is a group of South Marston volunteers who care about wildlife. If you’d like to know more please call Chris on 829868 or Susan on 824957, or email Chris at You can also read more about the group on the village website, Next -me you’re on South Marston recrea-on ground, try this “treasure hunt”. All answers are things that you can see when you’re on the rec’, between the football changing rooms and the toddlers play area. There are no trick ques-ons, and the ques-ons are in no par-cular order. 1. Where can you see “PLAYCARE”? 2. How many trees are in a line in front of the football changing rooms? 3. Where is there a weather vane? 4. What type of tree is in the middle of the rec’? 5. Where is the only clock that can be seen from the rec’? 6. Where can you see this: “Fruits et Légumes”? 7. According to one wooden sign post, how far is Oxleaze Wood? 8. Where can you see the number: 413088? 9. How many tractor tyres laid on the ground can you see from the rec’? 10. Where can you see “Color’ado” on the rec’? (If you want to check your answers or simply cheat, the answers are later on in this edi-on.)
  9. 9. 9 The F & E Harris Memorial Trust Christmas Hampers - new qualification criteria The government has increased the State Pension age for women to 65 phased from April 2016 to December 2018. A further increase will be phased in to raise the State Pension age for all to 66 from December 2018. In consideration of these changes, and the proposed expansion of the village community, the Trust will be making the following changes to the criteria for allocation of Christmas Hampers to senior citizens of South Marston. These changes will be implemented on 1st April 2016. The changes are not subject to the exact scheduling of government criteria. To qualify for a Christmas Hamper the recipient is required to have been in permanent residency in South Marston for a period of 3 years prior to submission of registration. All new applicants must be 65 years of age on 24th December 2016 to be eligible to register. Bag It & Bin It! There is a growing problem in the village with dog mess that is not being cleared up by some dog owners. Clearly, this is being caused by an irresponsible few as the majority of dog owners are very conscien-ous when it comes to bagging and binning! It goes without saying that dog mess is not only offensive, but it can lead to an infec-on - toxocariasis - if it enters the human system. It seems that this problem is not limited to South Marston - an Essex Council has resorted to spraying the dog mess bright orange to shock owners into cleaning up a<er their pets! If you have any ideas as to how we can improve the situa-on, please contact Amanda at the Tower and Tap - we will share the pick of the sugges-ons over the coming months!

Volunteers are in the process of enlarging the car-parking area for the additional tenants and making space available for bulk manure and wood chippings storage sites (all kindly donated by local businesses). As at the 21st August, we have let 20 of the new plots and several of these have already been put into cultivation in the few weeks since they were taken over. All of the new Allotmenteers are from surrounding Parishes and have bought with them a love of the outdoors and an appreciation of the quiet space found on the allotment site. The Parish Council welcomes them all and wishes them every success in their growing endeavours.

  21. 21. 21 South Marston CofE Primary School South Marston CofE Primary school has been judged as OUTSTANDING overall, during their church school inspec-on. The school is absolutely delighted with the outcome and gave thanks to the children, staff, governors and parents who were interviewed on the day. ‘The dis!nc!veness and effec!veness of South Marston as a Church of England school are outstanding. A strong emphasis on Chris!an values has created a very warm and welcoming environment. These values make an impact on how all members of the school community care for each other. The headteacher, governors and staff form a highly effec!ve team and ensure that the Chris!an ethos con!nues to develop. There are well-developed links with the church and local community.’ SIAMS June 2013 In addi-on, South Marston Primary School celebrated a remarkable landmark on 25th June 2013, reaching its 140th birthday. Celebra-ons went on all week to mark the occasion, including visits from ex-pupils who described what life was like as a schoolchild there in the past. “The school has been serving the local community now for many genera-ons,” said Luke Maddison, who has been headmaster since January. “It is important we recognise that fact and celebrate it.” Pupils and staff went to a special service at South Marston church before enjoying tea and cakes in the playground. The occasion was reminiscent of the celebra-ons held when the school first opened its doors on June 25, 1873.
