Warsop Carnival

Yes Folks! The Carnival came to Warsop and went with a BANG as we revelled in another hugely successful weekend. On Saturday Skateboard Heaven proved extremely popular attracting large numbers of skateboarders to Warsop’s premiere skatepark (some participants came from Sheffield, Doncaster and Kirkby-in-Ashfield). As well as Skateboard demonstrations and competitions, the afternoon included Extreme Wheels Roadshow and live local group Monkey Fist proved a popular hit.

Sunday 5th July saw the main event, kick off early with a 7 aside mini soccer tournament (thanks to the help of Warsop Wanderers) at 9am. By 11am our parade assembled along Robin Hood Avenue and what a parade it was – By far our biggest and most exciting to date – A massive thank you to all our float entrants and Bowring Transport for helping with the lorries and drivers. The huge crowds that lined the parade route were entertained by some great marching bands - particularly The Derbyshire Midshipmen – and they all saw the GIANT CATERPILLAR – it was the size of a house – for those who missed it, you will have to be content with the photo. Warsop Carnival

The afternoon was jam packed full of entertainment from the Essex Dog Display Team, The Horsemen of the Apocalypse to West Lives and Lounge Kings, from Gerry Cottle and Confederates of Derby to Pop Idol and Thoresby Junior Brass Band, from Mrs. McBeth’s Hostile Bid and Shifting Sands to Classic Car Show and Monkey Fist add all that to the fairground, flower show, pony rides, train rides, quad bikes, bouncing castles and slides, helicopter flights and the duck race and we had a great day – Oh yes, the weather wasn’t bad either! I will leave you to remember your own Carnival Day with a collection of photos.

Hard to Reach Groups Project

Are you fed up of decisions being made without people asking your opinion? Then the Hard to Reach Groups Project could help you out. The Project is funded by the Community Empowerment Fund and was set up to support members of voluntary and community groups. This is your chance to make an impact on decisions made about the Mansfield Area. The Project has just appointed a new Support Officer, Penny Altham, who will be working with groups to support them in going to meetings so that their voice can be heard. Penny is working alongside Kay Philby, Administrator, who would both welcome a call from you if you think they can help. We are interested to hear if there are any barriers which stop you getting to local meetings. Do you have language difficulties which stop you going along? Or do you know where meetings are and how to get involved?

There are Community and Voluntary Sector Forum meetings for any member of a group that is based in the Mansfield District. They meet every few months to talk about difficulties people in the community are faced with. Representatives from these meetings then go to other meetings to pass on the views of the whole group. These are Local Strategic Partnership meetings (the Mansfield Area Strategic Partnership) where decisions are made about your local services, education and local environment. The CVSF is your chance to really make a difference! We will support you every step of the way if you want to get involved. We can give you information before and after meetings to make things easier to understand. There is also plenty of training or informal courses that we can direct you to, so you can build on your current skills. We are particularly interested in getting in touch with groups of young people who may not usually get involved. Please give us a call for more information on 01623 624655, email htrgp@hotmail.com or call into Park Road Resource Centre, Mansfield Woodhouse.

Book reviewMan and Wife
by

Tony Parsons

This is the follow-up to Man and Boy and is just as good, if not even better. Harry is now on his second marriage and has also inherited a step-daughter. Harry’s own son, Pat, goes to live with his mother and her second husband and Harry is devastated when she announces that she is taking Pat to live in

America. The whole book is about the relationships between second families and the pressures that are put on “second” families when step-children and grandparents are involved. It is quite amusing in places, has a happy ending and I suspect a lot of people will be able to relate to it !

Bob Moody's bird news

June to Mid July 2003

 

On the 25th November 2002, Mrs Smith of Ashton in Makerfield, Wigan, was out walking in Oldham, Greater Manchester when she saw a ringed Mute Swan. She noted the ring number and notified the British Trust for Ornithology. On the 15th January 2003 the same Mrs Smith was again out walking, this time she was at Thrybergh Country Park at Rotherham. She again noticed a ringed Mute Swan and, once again she sent the details off to the BTO. Both of these birds were ringed on the same day, (15th August 1999) by Birklands ringing group on water near to Warsop, and both were of the same brood. I cannot help but be totally amazed at the coincidence involved in this chain of events. What are the odds of Mrs Smith travelling from her home in Lancashire and finding and reporting a sibling of her previous find? It is also nice to know, that local birds are adding to the national stock of Swans.

Other ringing results have also been arriving recently. A locally ringed Sand Martin travelled down to Africa and returned the following year and was found alive and well at a gravel pit at St Neots in Cambridge. Also a local Tawny Owl was ringed as a juvenile; it left the nest and travelled to Norwood in Derbyshire. Unfortunately this bird did not do so well as it was hit by a train and was killed. A Siskin, ringed on the 9th March 02 at Meden Vale, flew to Hammeron in Sweden, a distance of 1122 km. Not bad for a bird that weighs just over 12g.

A Chaffinch from Meden Vale has decided on some sea air and has moved to Burgh Castle at Great Yarmouth. I was grateful to Brian Nutthall recently when he opened up Sookholme Church in order that a group of walkers from Hucknall and Bestwood Country Park could look around. At the end of Brian’s tour we were delighted to see the local Barn Owl make an appearance; it swooped low over our heads as it quartered the hedgerows in the half light of evening and in typical ghostly fashion.

Mick Crookes has witnessed the successful fledging of a Cuckoo, this individual was raised by a Blackbird in a hedge in Mick’s garden. I was reading recently that the list of known Cuckoo hosts (birds that Cuckoos choose to lay their eggs in) has now reached something like 35 species.

Adrian Hardy sent me a fascinating account of his bird watching in Oz, from lizard eating Kookaburras to exotic Kingfishers and yet I still get the feeling that Adrian enjoys his own little patch in our fair village, incidentally if anyone would like to forward any details of any birds or anything pertaining to wildlife on their travels I would be pleased to hear from them. I am just back from walking along the coastal path of Brittany and it was there that I saw my first Painted Lady butterfly of the year. On my return Peter Spencer had left me a message that he too had seen one this year, his butterfly had turned up in Cuckney. These beautiful insects are migrants from the continent and it may be that this year will be a Painted Lady year.

Common Lizard are being reported in heathland areas, especially on the warmer days they can be seen basking in the sunshine. If anyone is interested in Heaths, open grassland and woodland, or old colliery winding engines then I have just the event for you, on Sunday 14th September Bestwood Country Park is hosting an event called ‘From Coal to Conservation’ there will be trips around the old Headstocks of Bestwood Colliery led by an ex mining engineer, Rangers will be leading guided walks on the old pit tip to look at the recolonisation by nature, The Bestwood Black Diamonds Brass Band together with the Knights of Harmony Male Voice Choir and many other stalls and entertainers will be there. I have been charged with putting all this together so it would be great to see a few Warsop people on the day.

I usually end by thanking everyone for their reports and say keep them coming but I have just been reading about a birdwatcher who, like me, puts a few notes down for his local journal, it seems he made a mistake on one of his reports and gave a wrong location for a rare bird and he is now being sued for misinformation. Can I end by saying? ‘Every effort has been made to ensure that any information with regard to sighting of birds is accurate. Also, and to safeguard against any future actions which may threaten my financial or physical status, readers should note that anything in my report are intended to bear no reference to any person living or dead. Or anyone who has the wherewithal to go to litigation.
Best Wishes, - Bob Moody - 55 George Street, or email: bobmoody@btopenworld.com

DOES ANYONE KNOW?

SPION KOP
The name Spion Kop originates from South Africa and the battle
there during the Boer War. After leaving Warsop the hill leading
down into Spion Kop is named Majubah Hill (not sure if this
is spelt correctly). The bungalow on the right at the bottom
of the hill is Mosscar Bungalow also names from the Boer War.
Barry Poxon

Our village of Spion Kop was named in honour of Major General
John Talbot Coke JP. The Major along with his family had long
associations with Mansfield and Mansfield Woodhouse. His
father was Colonel Edward Thomas Coke of Debdale Hall.
Major General Talbot entered the army at the age of 17 and
served for 42 years, he served with some distinction in the
South African War of 1899-1900 (The Boer War). On the 23rd
January 1900 he and his soldiers defended a place in South
Africa called Spoin Kop, it is his victory in this battle that resulted
in Spion Kop being named in his honour. Major General Coke
was born in August 1841 at Brimington Hall and he died in
February 1912 aged 91.
Mrs. Helen Wood

WHO KNOWS (2)
May I add my final piece to WHO KNOWS (2). Thank you
Tania for printing the photograph of the painting by Eddie Moss
of the burning Lancaster Bomber in 1945. It is good to hear
that it is still with his family. I remember Eddie telling of the
whistle belonging to one of the crew, which was attached to
the painting.

So Much To Do... So Little Time!
This is traditionally the ‘busy’ time of the year as we try to make the most of the summer months. Sometimes there is more to do than we have time or staff for. So what has been keeping us busy? Well apart from normal Squadron nights which include sports, shooting, lessons, training and other activities, we have taken place in competitions, charity events, sports events, fundraising, the Warsop Carnival and visited an Air Show. Not bad for a few weeks is it?

The picture shows the senior team that we entered into the Welbeck Pentathalon competition at Welbeck College. This is an annual event organised and run by the staff and cadets of the College and attracts teams from all over the country. Cadet Rylance is being caught by the rest of the team as he dives through a small hole in a ‘letter box’ net. It is an initiative test where you have to get your team through the net safely but by observing rules that do not allow you to use the easy holes more than once. They help each other through but there is always the one left that cannot be helped. Solution? A running dive and trust in your team members!

We also entered a junior team with both of them comimg in the top 12. Well done. WO John Kirkland and Civilian Instructor Karen Knowles took cadets to the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) at RAF Fairford recently along with thousands of cadets and youth organisations from around the country. The low cloud did not allow most of the aircraft to fly on the day but the ground shows and RAF supports were very good.

The Carnival is always a very big part of our year with staff, cadets, civilian committee members and parents all getting involved to make it a good day. Apart from the Tea and Cake stall we have a very popular Bottle Tombola, some games and a recruitment stand as well as parading the banner in front of the procession of floats. This year we also had the opportunity to sell ‘Ducks’ to the public for the Duck Race. One of our tickets picked up the first prize of £100! One of our biggest tasks though is manning and running the main car park. We start this on Saturday by putting all the fencing and signs up and then spent 7 hours on Sunday selling car park spaces.The above carnival events netted us about £970. Thank you to all those people who have supported us through all of our fundraising events. We would struggle without the continued support of the kind people of Market Warsop.

So what should you expect from us in the next issue? Well next week we embark on two (yes…two) full week camps. I am taking five cadets on summer camp to RAF Valley on the Isle of Anglesey with 49 other cadets from around the Wing and WO John Wilkinson is leading the rest of the Squadron to a full (and tiring) week of activities in the woods of Proteus camp near Ollerton. I look forward to telling you all about it. Don’t forget: Sqn nights are Wednesday and Friday from 7pm to 9pm on Carr Lane Warsop. Flt Lt Paul Colley. Tel: 01623 845139. email: p.colley@kostal.com

Title - Warsop Footpaths and Countryside GroupOur next walk will be around Holmfirth in Yorkshire on Saturday 20th September. This area is famous for the Last of the Summer Wine TV series. The walk is about 7 to 8 miles and is quite steep at the start but easy walking afterwards. Due to the length of the journey in the minibus we will be leaving Warsop library at the earlier time of 8:30. If you are planning to join us on this walk please contact us to confirm a place on the bus and to check details.

At this time of year it is worth taking a look at the flowers on the area of the Hills and Holes over the footbridge from the end of Stonebridge Lane. The range of blues and purples from varieties of scabious, knapweed, harebell, vetch and thistle are spectacular. If you need more detailed identification you should consult an expert or a flower book - I am just the bloke who cuts them down when they grow too close to edges of the footpaths! Seriously, I am one of many people who derives a great deal of pleasure from the changing patterns of flowers throughout the year on this special part of Warsop.

Sloe gin makers should be having a good year as there seems to be a heavy crop developing this year. A particularly good area is along the blackthorn hedge that has been planted along the edge of the Welbeck pit tip between Meden Vale and Cuckney Hill. This new hedge is growing so well that it is threatening to obstruct the footpath.

There are more flowers becoming established in the area of grassland that this group manages on the part of the Carrs just over the footbridge near the BMX track. Flower species now include cowslips, cranesbills and scabious. There also seem to be more insects and birds in the area.

The trees that we planted are now becoming well established and we have decided not to mow around them this year to encourage wildlife and discourage humans! Around 30 of the hedge plants that were planted by Meden School students appear to be thriving and hopefully a new hedgerow will develop along the edge of the field. We shall be cutting the grassland area in the autumn once annual plants have had a chance to seed. You can contact the Secretary on 01623 846281.

We maintain the public footpath network in Warsop, we undertake conservation projects and we provide information about the local environment.
