Marston Moor Probus Club: Twenty five members and guests set off from Long Marston and then Rufforth by coach at 8.40am for RAF Fylingdales Early Warning Radar Station. We arrived at the RAF Station and entered the outer picket gate. At the inner gate our identification was checked and we were joined by our host for the visit; Flight Lieutenant Tim Fenton MBE. The Flight Lieutenant lead us to a meeting room, where he briefed us on the role of the station, it’s history, costs, staff, technical equipment (how it works) and the wild life existing in the MOD land surrounding the Radar. The original Radar, three golf balls, was built in 1957 as a ballistic missile early warning station at a cost of £45 million (the USA paid £36M). The new Radar built in 1992 looks like a pyramid and cost £160M (USA £112M), it is a Solid State Phased Array rather than the mechanical rotating dishes in the previous golf balls. The primary mission of the station remains continuous missile warning however it now also has a Space role in tracking all man made objects in space to provide warning of possible damage to people on the ground on re-entry and damage to other orbiting space craft. It also tracks spy satellites to provide warning to commercial companies and our military. The radar looks out in all directions and can detect a cricket ball sized object 3000 miles away. After the presentation we went to the Radar “Pyramid”, where we were shown the control room and where staff demonstrated the detection of satellites and aircraft on the many computer screens, no incoming ballistic missiles thankfully! After the control room we went up to floor seven and stood behind the wall of radar modules. There are 2,560 of them over the three faces of the pyramid rather like the receptors in our eyes retina. Unlike our eyes the modules both transmit and receive energy the total mean transmission of the radar being 2.4Mega Watts. Finally we had an excellent buffet lunch in the Sergeant Mess with beer at 94 pence a pint. This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738 628.

Marston Moor Probus Club: At their meeting held on March 31 Mrs C Smithies gave her talk on ‘The Barnbow Lassies’. The Barnbow Lassies were employed in the first of 250 munitions factories built during the 1915 -1918 period to provide shells for World War I. The Barnbow factory was built on Barnbow Common east of Leeds and extended to 400 acres in size. It recruited mainly women and girls from Leeds and the surrounding area including from Selby and York. The main railway from Leeds to York passed close to the site so a special station was built to get the workers in for the three shifts per day, with 5,000-6,000 workers per shift. The factory operated 24 hours per day, seven days per week and 365 days per year. Much of the work was dangerous as it involved filling empty shells with hot liquid TNT followed by a topping of two packets of powdered TNT and a detonator! Only one major explosion is recorded which was on December 5 1916 and 37 women were killed when a 4.5 inch shell exploded and set off the remainder in the room. Fortunately the factory used a system of bunkered rooms so that disasters such as this would be contained and not affect the rest of the site and reduce output. By today’s standards health and safety was very underdeveloped. The women working with TNT developed jaundice and because of their yellow colour were nicknamed canaries.
Mrs Smithies was fortunate to interview one of the Barnbow Lassies named Sally Howe when she celebrated her 100th birthday. She recalled leaving her job in a Mill for better pay and of her starting work at Barnbow when she was 17, and the songs they used to sing. Probus were privileged to hear a recording of her singing one of the songs. Of the 17,000 people working at Barnbow 16,000 were women but only two of the top jobs were filled by women, as women’s welfare superintendents. Mrs Smithies talk was well researched and though she edged into details of the 2nd World War, she promised to return, if invited, to continue the story of the Barnbow Lassies in the second Barnbow factory at Crossgates, the original having been pulled down soon after WWI ended. Mrs Smithies answered a number of questions at the end and was thanked on behalf the club by Mr Peter Spowage.
This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738 628. At the meeting in May, Mr J Holroyd will give his talk “Scottish Waterways (A journey from Inverness to Edinbro’).

Marston Moor Probus Club Report: For their February meeting members assembled at the reception area at the British Library at Boston Spa (Thorpe Arch), at 10 30am. After coffee the group was divided into four sub-groups of about six members, each with a guide, for a tour of the library. The proper name for this facility is now “The British Library Document Supply” (DSC) and it houses over 3 million books, subscribes to over 250,000 journals, proceedings of 420,000 conferences and many other reports in many languages including official publications from the UK, and other governments including USA, EU, and Japan. One of the chief functions of the library is to provide copies of mainly scientific papers for researchers, universities and other organisations. Members of the public can also request copies of papers and documents.
The groups were shown the route a request for such a copy takes from arrival by post or online through to dispatch from the post room. Much of the work in the library is on computers though the actual finding of the document and the copying is done by people. The service is not free and the costs are per document up to 50 pages and the service can provide at least three levels of service, within two hours, next day or within five days. The Library employs about 850 full time equivalent people and spends about £12m on new materials per year. It has about 100 miles of shelving and the journal stock grows by nearly a mile of shelf space in a year. These statistics together with the tour of only part of a massive site reinforced for the members the fact that this is a very significant National resource and it is on our doorstep! The public can use the reading room during normal opening times (9am to 4.30pm) and have access to a world of information.
At the meeting in May, Mr J Holroyd will give his talk entitled Scottish Waterways (A journey from Inverness to Edinburgh).
This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738628

Marston Moor Probus Club: At their meeting held on January 27 Ms Forbes Adam gave her talk “A Short Walk in Peru”. Ms Forbes Adam had been on an arduous mountain trek about ten years ago and when she saw an advertisement for a Scope trek to Macchu Picchu in Peru she thought it was time for another “walk”. She raised the necessary £3,000 for this fundraising event and did quite a bit of training to improve her fitness. When she met with the rest of the 28 member party at Heathrow Airport she was impressed by several things including the youthfulness of some of the party and the apparent lack of fitness of others. They flew to Lima, at sea level, and then on to Cuzco at 10,000 feet above sea level for altitude acclimatisation. She then described the next several days during which the group walked up very steep paths with guides and mules as they moved towards the “lost Inca” city of Macchu Picchu. Unfortunately, probably due to some “dodgy water”, she was ill and after the first walking day, had a different journey to the rest of the group, which brought her back to join them for the last day’s trek into Macchu Picchu. Ms Forbes Adam ably described the whole experience and said the event raised £90,000 for the charity Scope. After questions Mr Peter Leonard proposed a vote of thanks.
Coffee was then taken, followed by the Annual General Meeting. A small change to the Constitution was proposed, amended and passed. The officers gave their reports, the accounts were accepted and the subscription for 2009 agreed. Mr John Reynolds was re-elected as chairman, Mr Alan Jones was re-elected as secretary/treasurer and Mr Mike O’Dowd was re-elected as speaker finder. At the meeting in March Mrs C Smithies will give her talk “The Barnbow Lasses”

Marston Moor Probus Club: On October 28 Mr David Rymer gave his talk “A Reluctant Funeral Director.” He began with several quotations, some from Dickens, related to undertaking and to burial practices since the 17th Century. He traced the development of funeral services from the jobbing builder/joiner through to the modern comprehensive service now available. He mentioned the demise of the horse drawn hearse as motor hearses became the norm and more recently the requests for horse drawn hearses have increased, though they are still rare. Numerous difficult areas were covered including the pros and cons of burial in your own garden and “green funerals”. He emphasised several times that the modern Funeral Director aims to provide what the family of the deceased require (or the deceased’s wishes if known), provided it is legal and that all of the consequences are pointed out. Mr Rymer in explaining the title of his talk pointed out that it is his family business that he joined. He gave many amusing anecdotes throughout his talk which had his audience in much laughter. The talk was concluded with a number of questions and a vote of thanks was given by Mr Peter Biglin.
The meeting in December is on the 9th day of the month and will be held at the Chequers Inn, Bilton in Ainsty, when Mr G Goodair will give his talk “Humorous Experiences of a Traffic Warden”. The talk will be followed by Christmas Luncheon.

Marston Moor Probus Club: On September 30 Mr Brian Ainsworth gave his talk on the beginning of MI5, the Security Service. He started by pointing out that spying has a very long history from antiquity to the present. He briefly mentioned the spying of the henchmen of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I and quickly brought us up through the Napoleonic and Crimean wars and to the end of the Boer war. In the time from the Boer war to the First World War, Germany and Britain were engaged in an arms race, especially in their respective navies. Following a review of defence in 1909 Capt. Mansfield Cumming RNR was appointed Head of Foreign Intelligence (MI6) and Captain Vernon Kell was appointed Head of Counter Intelligence at Home (MI5). These two men, coming from the Navy and the Army, did not get on well and there were conflicts of personality over status and funding. Superintendent William Melville, Head of Special Staff Bureau, whose tasks included looking after the King’s safety, came into MI5 as its public face from the police side. He set up a spy training school (after work on Tuesdays and Fridays!) to teach his team the skills of being an effective spy. In this school using top experts, including top criminals,
they learned field skills, codes, code breaking, lock picking, safe breaking etc. His German equivalent, Gustav Steinhauser, set up a not well trained spy system and some of it was set to work in Britain. It was particularly interested in our navy, dockyards and ship building but was soon penetrated by MI5 and some spies were imprisoned and others executed. Due to the work of the Security Services and our preparedness, within hours of WW1 being declared, we had cut the undersea cables to Europe, forcing the Germans to use radio which was easy to intercept.
Mr Ainsworth showed photographs of some of the principal people in his talk and gave many details of particular incidents. He answered a number of questions and was formally thanked by Mr John Brookes.

Tockwith Show: The weather stopped mainly dry, apart from a few showers, and thousands of people turned up for the Tockwith Show, held last Saturday, August 2. Another very successful show from this hard working committee, all local and all volunteers. There was all the horticultural, produce & preserves, children's exhibits etc, horse jumping, birds of prey, vintage tractors, vintage cars, dogs, sheep, goats, pigs, Highland cattle, rabbits, hens - you name it, it was there and to finish the day off there was the famous and hysterical 'Dog Dash' in the main ring and the very amusing charity auction, held on the stage where the Wetherby Silver Band had played during the day. Every year the president of the show, this year Mr John Penty, chooses a charity of their choice and all exhibits not taken home are auctioned, along with other items kindly donated by trade stands or from the Farmer's Market. Jonty Lighthowler was an excellent auctioneer, unfazed by the eclectic array of goods he had to auction. Do you know of any where else where you have the chance to purchase one large cabbage and a jar of strawberry jam or a plate of potatoes and a bakewell tart, as auction items! One young lady just happened to be walking past the charity auction and unwisely happened to wave to someone in the crowd. Well that was it, Mark Blacker, chairman of the show, shouted "Sold for £3.50" and with that jumped off the stage and this poor young lady became the proud owner of a plate of butterfly buns and a victoria sponge! Great fun and all for a good cause, St Leonard's Hospice.
Next year's show is on August 1. Make a date in your diary as this local agricultural show is not to be missed.
Marston Moor Probus Club: On July 29 the Club, with guests, went on its summer outing to Gayle Mill and the Countryside Museum at Hawes. The group arrived at a busy Hawes at 10.45am for coffee and scones, and then visited the two attractions. Gayle Mill, now part of a trust, opened for visitors in March 2008 after much restoration work was completed. The mill has a long history, being built and opening as a cotton mill in 1784, taking power from the adjacent stream. As time passed the water power was used to work flax, wool, wood and eventually to generate electricity. Original machinery is still to be seen and much is still in working order including an 1879 Williamson turbine. This working turbine is the oldest in situ in Europe, if not the world.
The Mill, by then used as a wood mill, finally closed in 1988 and appeared in the BBC’s “Restoration” series in 2004. It has now been listed as a Grade II building and following much restoration is again a working wood mill using many of the original machines as well as some new (safer) modern ones. Various articles are made for sale and to order and on certain days wood working skills are taught. The turbines produce green electricity and there is a biomass boiler using waste wood and sawdust to heat the building.
The very modern Countryside Museum had everything you would expect with plenty of easily remembered tools, equipment and procedures of farming and countryside life. In addition there were reminders that the museum is in the Dales and there were tableau of lead mining as well as geological and archaeological finds. Part of the building is the old Hawes railway station and on a short piece of railway line several carriages are also used as display areas.
These visits were followed by a late, but excellent lunch, at the Rose & Crown at Bainbridge and the return journey through sunbathed Wensleydale and back on the A1. This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738628.

Marston Moor Probus Club: At the meeting on June 24 Dr D Palmer spoke on the “Battle of Marston Moor”. Dr Palmer began by outlining the political background to the Civil War which had at its roots the refusal of King Charles I to accept any of the wishes, requests, or demands of parliament. His belief in the divine rights of the monarch meant that parliament was treated as a body to be called together when the king chose, to raise money for him. Dr Palmer indicated some of the principal players on both the Royalist and Parliamentary sides and the events which led to the historic battle on Marston Moor.
He then went on to describe the battle itself which took place in the early evening of July 2 1644, lasted only two hours and finally resulted in the defeat of the Royalist Armies. This event marked the end of the king’s armies in the north. Dr Palmer went on to describe the events which followed, including the formation of the “New Model Army” in 1645 (the first national army in the country) leading to the final defeat of the king in 1646. Following this talk there were a large number of questions both about the battle itself and the Civil War. Members showed their appreciation with a vigorous round of applause.
This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738628. The meeting in July is the summer trip and in August Mr A Eaton will give a talk entitled “The Capture of Pegasus Bridge”.

Marston Moor Probus Club: The May 27 meeting commenced with the chairman, Mr John Reynolds, requesting members to stand for a minutes silence to reflect upon the life of Mr Richard Henry “Dick” Standen an enthusiastic and founder member of the Club who sadly died on May 1 2008.
The speaker finder, Mr Mike O’Dowd reported that the programme for 2009 was well in hand. The secretary, Mr Alan Jones reported the Christmas Lunch at The Chequers Inn had been booked and also that all the venues and coach had been booked for The Summer Trip to Hawes Countryside Museum and Gayle Mill with a 3-course lunch at The Rose & Crown Hotel in Bainbridge.
The speaker, Ms D Curren was then introduced by her host Mr Ken Bennett. Ms Curren described the history and work of Marie Curie Cancer Care. She explained that 2008 is the 60th anniversary year of the charity which was founded at the same time as the National Health Service. A Marie Curie Nurse will join a family to support them and look after a terminally ill member suffering from cancer through the long night hours in their own home. Ms Curren read from the diary of a Marie Curie Nurse which was very moving and helped us appreciate the value and great dedication of their work. Marie Curie Cancer also has ten treatment centres with typically fifteen beds where patients can be cared for. Research is not forgotten, the charity has a centre in Surrey where the battle to find a cure continues.
A Marie Curie Nurse costs £20 per hour, the charity raises £10 of this cost through fund raising, and the NHS provides the balance of £10. Fund raising is, therefore, very important. Ms Curren described many of the activities which take place; the Daffodil Campaign is second only to the Poppy Appeal. BUPA, Homebase, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Tesco support fund raising events like The Great North Run. This 60th Anniversary year, 60 ladies plan to cycle from York to Amsterdam and back in order to raise money for the Charity.
This is a men’s club which normally meets on the last Tuesday morning of each month in Long Marston Village Hall. Guests are welcome, enquiries to Secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738 628.

Long Marston, Hutton Wandesley and Angram Neighbourhood Watch: At their quarterly meeting on May 21 co-ordinators considered a number of current issues and possible items for the next newsletter which is expected to be distributed in July.
The introduction of the “No Cold Calling Zones” to cover the whole of the three villages caused the most concern. Cold calling in the village has continued and has been reported to coordinators instead of to Trading Standards. The Callers when challenged have invariably said they had not seen the notices, a point which is easy to understand as the notices were considered by the coordinators to be too small, too high and far too wordy. This issue is to be followed up with Trading Standards and others.
The Police Mobile Office (MPO) will visit Long Marston School on July 4 and may be open for residents as well. The possibility of the Fire and Rescue Service providing short term speed detection equipment for the village roads was also discussed.

Marston Moor Probus Club: On April 29 Mr P Sandeman gave an informative and at times amusing speech entitled “Old Time Music Halls”. He started his career in the theatre at Cardiff as a Junior Assistant and then moved to Swansea and saw Henry Irvine and Marty Wilde perform. In 1978 he moved to Leeds and the Grand Theatre where on that Theatre’s 100th anniversary he carried an umbrella protecting the Prince of Wales from the rain, apparently protocol dictates you do not speak until spoken to and so the service was carried out in silence.
He moved to Leeds City Varieties to become the Manager. Leeds City Varieties started in 1865 as a Song Room in the Swann Public House. The original Song Room was apparently where the stage now stands. In January 2009 the City Varieties will close for an extensive refurbishment and modification programme funded by Leeds City Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Public Donations. Ken Dodd will be the last performer before this work commences [for further information go to: www.cityvarieties.co.uk].
Members approved the booking of the Chequers Inn, Bilton in Ainsty for the traditional Christmas Lunch with speaker. A vote was taken on two possible venues for the July Summer Trip [with Lady Wives] and it was decided to go to Galye Mill and the Dales Museum in Hawes.

Conservation Area Appraisal: Harrogate Borough Council have begun a reassessment of all 52 of Harrogate District’s Conservation Areas. They would like the help of local people in the reassessment of the Conservation Area and, as a first step, have arranged a ‘workshop event’ to take place at Tockwith Village Hall on Wednesday evening, April 30 from 6.30pm-9.30pm.

The workshop will include: A short talk on why the reassessment is taking place; a summary of the changes which have taken place since the Conservation Area was designated and an assessment of what makes it special.
They will lead a walk around the area to look at buildings, spaces and features, returning to the village hall where they will mark maps to show key elements they found and discussed on the walk. These findings will help in preparing a draft document for consultation and, following this, a final version will be used to assist in the planning of the area.

Marston Moor Probus Club: The meeting on Tuesday, March 25 was held at the subject of the talk, namely Allerton Castle. Our guide was Mrs Dorothy Savage who told the group about the history of the castle, the succession of family ownerships and previous buildings on the site. When we divided into two groups for our tour, we were joined by Dr Gerald Arthur Rolph who bought the castle in 1983. Dr Rolph set up a charity foundation to restore and preserve the castle in 1986 and restoration work commenced to rectify years of neglect. The group saw photographs of the restoration and then also saw photographs of the destruction caused by the terrible fire in January 2005. During the tour the group saw newly restored rooms and gained an appreciation of the detailed work already done and that still to do.
After the tour many members went into the grounds, particularly to see the memorial garden to the memory of the No 6 Bomber Group, Royal Canadian Air Force who had their Second World War headquarters at the castle.

Marston Moor Probus Club: The meeting on Tuesday, March 25 was held at the subject of the talk, namely Allerton Castle. Our guide was Mrs Dorothy Savage who told the group about the history of the castle, the succession of family ownerships and previous buildings on the site. When we divided into two groups for our tour, we were joined by Dr Gerald Arthur Rolph who bought the castle in 1983. Dr Rolph set up a charity foundation to restore and preserve the castle in 1986 and restoration work commenced to rectify years of neglect. The group saw photographs of the restoration and then also saw photographs of the destruction caused by the terrible fire in January 2005. During the tour the group saw newly restored rooms and gained an appreciation of the detailed work already done and that still to do.
After the tour many members went into the grounds, particularly to see the memorial garden to the memory of the No 6 Bomber Group, Royal Canadian Air Force who had their Second World War headquarters at the castle.

Marston Moor Probus Club: The meeting on Tuesday, March 25 was held at the subject of the talk, namely Allerton Castle. Our guide was Mrs Dorothy Savage who told the group about the history of the castle, the succession of family ownerships and previous buildings on the site. When we divided into two groups for our tour, we were joined by Dr Gerald Arthur Rolph who bought the castle in 1983. Dr Rolph set up a charity foundation to restore and preserve the castle in 1986 and restoration work commenced to rectify years of neglect. The group saw photographs of the restoration and then also saw photographs of the destruction caused by the terrible fire in January 2005. During the tour the group saw newly restored rooms and gained an appreciation of the detailed work already done and that still to do.
After the tour many members went into the grounds, particularly to see the memorial garden to the memory of the No 6 Bomber Group, Royal Canadian Air Force who had their Second World War headquarters at the castle.

Price is £2.50 per child and includes children's party food, drink, party games and a disco. Refreshments are available for adults.

Marston Moor Probus Club: The speaker at the meeting on Tuesday, January 29 2008 was Mr Paul Gosling, who gave his talk entitled “Tales from around the world”. Mr Gosling told of some of his experiences after leaving Rotherham in 1949 to join a BP tanker ship in Newcastle and begin a career as a ships engineer. He worked on a range of ships from old tramp ships to finally working on cruise liners on the New York to Bermuda route. In between he travelled across the North Atlantic in winter, among icebergs without radar, to South America, South Africa, West Africa, Japan, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Suez Canal. In 1956 his ship was one of the last three ships to get through the Suez Canal before it was blocked by the Suez war. Mr Gosling amused and sometimes slightly horrified his audience with events and happenings on these many journeys around the world. After numerous questions Mr Haward proposed a vote of thanks.
After an interval for coffee the fourth Annual General Meeting took place, during which the officers, being willing to stand again, were all duly re-elected.

Tockwith Village Pre-school: Congratulations to Tockwith Village Pre-school for achieving a gold award for Quality Assurance. They are the first pre-school in North Yorkshire to have achieved this award. Tockwith Pre-school is based on the school premises and January 2008 marks their fourth anniversary. This gold quality assurance award is recognised by North Yorkshire as providing quality care and education for young children in the foundation stage and shows the high standard of the Tockwith Pre-school, of which they are naturally very proud, as there are very few groups around the area that hold this award. Well done!

Marston Moor Probus Club: The last meeting of the club’s year took place at the Chequers Inn at Bilton in Ainsty on December 11 2007. On this day the format was slightly different in that we started with mince pies and coffee and then the chairman, Mr Reynolds, formally opened the meeting. There were brief statements from the secretary/treasurer and the speaker finder. Following this the speaker for the day, Mr Rob Saunders, was introduced to give his talk called ‘A Caribbean Customs Christmas’.
Mr Saunders explained that his career had started as a customs officer working mainly at Heathrow where he had many interesting encounters with people and their smuggled materials ranging from red footed spiders to fake Viagra tablets. His career took a different tack after an episode with a gun, pointed straight at him by a very agitated white Rhodesian and his cool handling of the situation led him into Intelligence. This work eventually took him to the British Virgin Islands where he gradually won the respect of the predominantly black community who regarded whites with suspicion at the very least. He and his wife obviously enjoyed their time in the Virgin Islands but he was too successful at thwarting the efforts of both local and international smuggling groups and with serious threats to his person from Columbian drug barons he was brought back to England. He told many stories with amusing sides to them and his talk was greatly appreciated by his audience.
Following a short interval, members then sat down to a traditional Christmas lunch in a very convivial atmosphere.
The next meeting, in Long Marston Village Hall, includes the AGM and is on January 20 2008 when the speaker is Mr P Gosling whose talk is called ‘Tales From Around The Road’.
This is a men’s club and guests are welcome, enquiries to secretary, Alan Jones, 01904 738628.

Tockwith - Tobias Burckhardt 01423 359522

Marston Moor Probus Club: At their meeting on November 27 Mrs Jennifer Smith, who farms with her son at Askham Bryan, gave a talk on ‘Bee Keeping’. Mrs Smith explained how she became involved in bee keeping in about 1990 and of her experiences in keeping bees since then. She explained the general construction and mode of use of a bee hive using the hive she brought with her, (it contained no bees!). In this there were brood chambers and super frames for honey storage which were protected from the queen by a queen excluder. Mrs Smith mentioned the biggest problem bee keepers in the UK face which is the Varroa mite which was identified in the UK in 1992 and is now endemic. It has become resistant to pyrethroid insecticides and it weakens both adult bees and developing bees making them all more susceptible to the many viruses which the mite also carries.
Mrs Smith showed jars of honey derived from different crops including rape and heather. Members then asked a large number of questions before Mr Richard Standen gave a vote of thanks.
In the formal business members agreed, subject to final arrangements being satisfactory, to go to Allerton Hall for their meeting on March 25 2008 as the hall is the subject of the talk for that morning. The next meeting, which is on Tuesday December 11 2007, will be at the Chequers in Bilton and includes the Christmas Lunch as well as a talk entitled “A Caribbean Customs Christmas” to be given by Mr R Saunders.

Marston Moor Probus Club: At their meeting on September 25 Mr John Gillegan MBE gave a talk entitled 'Leeds, The Story of a Great City'. Mr Gillegan was born in Leeds and attended "The Grammar School” in Clarendon Road, which had its origins as a free Grammar School for boys much further in the centre of the old city. The school is usually said to have been founded in 1552 and was probably located in the Calls, but moved several times and in recent years it moved again to its present site at Alwoodley Gates.
Mr Gillegan started his story by saying that many people think of Leeds as a Victorian City but its origins go back many centuries. Iron Age remains have been found in the Quarry Hills area and a settlement developed at least from then onwards. Interestingly for many decades Barwick in Elmet was the centre of power in the area of Elmet, in which Leeds lies and only gradually did power move to the developing Leeds. Mr Gillegan illustrated these developments with slides showing old maps of the earlier stages of the City with its Manor and as few as 50 or so dwellings through the rise and fall of the Abbey at Kirkstall to the developing textile and industrial centre and finally the modern city. Photographs from the 19th century to some taken only this month were included and showed some fine buildings which have disappeared often to be replaced by modern ones.
Mr Roy Waterhouse proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Gilligan and hoped that he may return to tell more of the Leeds Story.
In the formal business the acting chairman welcomed a guest and then the secretary gave some information about the Christmas lunch to be held at the Chequers, Bilton.
The next meeting is on Tuesday, October 30 when our chairman will give a talk entitled 'Reds, Beds and Venona'.

Congratulations: Joe Wilson has come 1st at The Football Association Groundsman of the Year Awards held at Windsor Racecourse on Wednesday, September 5. This means that Tockwith AFC have the best football pitch in the whole of the UK at Level 7.

Joe Wilson was presented with a Trophy by Sir Trevor Brooking, £700 holiday vouchers and also gets to spend the day with a professional groundsman.

This is a great achievement for someone who works full-time, and together with help from a few others, does all of this back breaking work on a voluntary basis. Mind you this is not the first time Joe Wilson has won an award for looking after the grounds at Tockwith Football Club. The former football striker won the North Riding FA Groundsman award in 2006 for his “billiard table look” pitch. What a fantastic achievement for a small club and congratulations to Joe Wilson on this year’s award. Well done!

Marston Moor Probus Club: A new member, Mr Millington, who lives in Long Marston was welcomed to our club today by our Chairman Mr J Reynolds. This brings our membership up to 29 and covers villages ranging from Marton-cum-Grafton to Bickerton to Rufforth. Our speaker today was a lady called Mrs J Brookes from Leeds whose topic was "A Box of Treasures." The club depends very much on speakers as a centre piece to its meetings and this lady, despite having just left hospital after an operation, kept an appointment with us that was arranged in 2006!

Sponsored Steam: How long will it take to steam 5.5 miles? On Sunday, August 26 there is an exhibition of railway photographs and memorabilia at the Engine Shed in Wetherby, 11am-4pm, free entry - recalling the days when Wetherby had its own railway, prior to its closure by Dr Beeching in 1965. Following this exhibition Miles Pennett will be driving his model traction engine from the Engine Shed in Wetherby back to Tockwith, along the Wetherby Road - no mean feat for such a small engine! He will be stopping off at the village of Bickerton and also pausing at The Spotted Ox in Tockwith. The competition is to guess how long the journey will take. This sponsored run is in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, who are hoping to establish an operating base at Tockwith. It costs a £1 for each guess at the length of this journey and first prize is a three course Sunday lunch for two at the Sun Inn, Long Marston, second prize is a bottle of whisky and third prize a tin of Brasso! Sponsored Steam competition sheets are at The Spotted Ox, Tockwith and at the Wetherby News Office. For sponsor forms or further information contact Dennis Wardman on 01423 358482.

Tockwith Show: It was decided at a special committee meeting held on Monday, July 23 that because the showfield is so wet it is impossible to hold the Tockwith & District Show there. The committee did not want to disappoint all their supporters and, after a great deal of discussion, decided to accept a very kind offer from the Yorkshire Agricultural Society. They have kindly facilitated the use of their facilities at the Great Yorkshire Showground, so that the Tockwith Show can still go ahead. This is a once in a lifetime offer from the Yorkshire Agricultural Society and the Tockwith & District Show committee decided that, although it will mean a lot of hard work, it was preferrable to having to cancel their show once again because of bad weather. Car parking at this showground for example is on hardcore, so there will be no worry of sinking vehicles.
They are hoping that everyone will still support them and understand their reasons for moving their show to the Harrogate site, just for this one year. All committee members are all voluntary and work exceptionally hard to put on this village show, they are hoping that everyone will support them and keep fingers crossed that the weather is kind to them, both in the run up to their show and on the actual day. A great day out for all the family. Please go and support this local show on Saturday, August 4 at the Great Yorkshire Showground.
