Waitrose hands over £600 for riding group 


A GROUP that takes disabled children 
horse riding has been awarded a £600 
cheque by Waitrose. 

The Elysian group of the Riding for 
the Disabled Association was given 
the cash on Tuesday after shoppers 
voted for the organisation using the 
supermarket’s green token scheme. 

Vivienne Seymour, volunteer, said: “It 
was fanastic to receive the money. The 


atmosphere at each riding 
session is really friendly. 

Sometimes the children 
can get a bit excited, so 
we have to have patient 
horses.” 

The organisation also runs pony 
driving sessions for disabled adults. 
The group operates from Sedgeway 
Riding Centre in Witchford. 




INCIDENT 


Primary schools 
close because of 
burst water pipe 


THREE primary schools 
were among around 5,000 
customers affected when a 
water pipe burst in Little- 
port. 

Both of Littleport’s prima¬ 
ry schools - Littleport Com¬ 
munity and Millfield Pri¬ 
mary - as well as Downham 
Feoffees Primary School 
in Little Downham, were 
closed last Wednesday and 
Thursday due to issues with 
a large pipe near Littleport 
Water Tower. 

Anglian Water said that 
around 5,000 customers in 
the Littleport, Little Down¬ 
ham, Prickwillow and Py- 
moor area were affected by 
the burst, which was fixed

on Thursday morning. 

On Thursday afternoon, 
an Anglian Water spokes¬ 
woman said: “Customers in 
the Littleport area are now 
back on water as normal 
after the water main repair 
was completed this morn¬ 
ing. 

“We are really sorry for the 
inconvenience caused over 
the past two days. 

“Our teams worked 
through the night to fix the 
pipe near Littleport Water 
Tower and we brought in 


large tankers to keep the 
network topped to keep taps 
running. 

“The pipe was fixed and 
system started refilling by 
10am this morning, return¬ 
ing things to normal for eve¬ 
ryone. 

“We know how disruptive 
it is to be without water for 
any length of time and we 
are grateful to customers for 
their patience while we’ve 
been working to resolve 
things.”

Toddlers step out with Pudsey.. 


CHILDREN In Need was 
celebrated in style as 
groups across the area 
raised thousands of pounds. 
Pupils at Soham Village 
College staged a five-hour 
Danceathon on Friday that 
scored more than £2,100 for 
the cause. Inspired by BBC's 
TV show Strictly Come 
Dancing , 40 youngsters 
channelled their inner 
Charleston, Street Dance 
and Bollywood dance moves 
in the school's performing 
arts centre. 

Elsewhere, children raised 
over £200 at the Big Toddle 
around Ely Cathedral last 
Tuesday morning. 

The toddlers were 
joined by parents and 
grandparents, as well as 
local childminders. 

Sue Smith, who organises 
the event, said: "It was 
lovely to see how many of 
the children had dressed 
as super-heroes. It's such 
a happy and fun-loving 
atmosphere but at the same 
time we are really aware we 
are raising money for those 
less fortunate." 

Pudsey made a guest 
appearance, as well as VIP 
Ted - Sue Smith's 16-week 
old puppy. 

Families and carers 
enjoyed cakes baked by 
Mrs Smith to celebrate their 
achievements after the 
toddle.

BUSINESS 

Village bakery 
to close due to 
drop in trade 


A BAKERY in Littleport is to 
close due to poor trade. 

The Boswell and Son bak¬ 
ery has been on the site in 
Main Street for more than a 
decade but has seen a drop¬ 
off in customers since the 
bank and pharmacy on the 
same road shut their doors. 

Cathy Doswell, who has 
worked at the store for four 
years, said: “It wasn’t the 
Christmas present we want¬ 
ed. 

“We are all very disap¬ 
pointed because we have 
tried to make a go of it. Real¬ 
istically, we thought it might 
happen, but we didn’t think 
it would happen until the 
lease ran out, which would 
have given us a few more 
months.” 

She said the shop, which 
will close on Christmas Eve, 
had become less busy since 
Barclays bank, Lloyds bank 
and the chemists had closed. 

The bakery, which could 


NICK WILLOUGHBY 

@NCAWILLOUGHBY 


seat around a dozen people, 
had become a social hub for 
elderly residents, she added. 

The bakery - also known as 
Norths - is part of a family- 
run business called Boswell 
and Son, which owns six oth¬ 
ers around the county. 

There are four staff em¬ 
ployed at the Littleport 
outlet. They have all been 
offered first-refusal if a va¬ 
cancy at one of the other 
bakeries arises. 

“It’s not the company’s 
fault,” added Mrs Doswell. 

“It’s been a lovely com¬ 
pany to work for and they 
have been fair. It’s just such 
a shame.” 

Kim Oakhill, owner of Sig¬ 
ma Embroidery a few doors 
down from the bakery, said: 
“There’s certainly less people 
in the street but our busi¬ 


ness is not reliant on footfall 
though, so it hasn’t really af¬ 
fected us. 

“There’s a town team that 
is attempting to regenerate 
the centre, and there’s also 
a market once a fortnight at 
the Adams Heritage Centre, 
and that’s been popular.” 

Emma Hunter opened 
new cafe The Copper Cup in 
September. 

She said: “Since the bank 
closed we have felt an ef¬ 
fect on the high street with 
less footfall. But I’m working 
with the town team and we 
are trying to come up with 
new ideas to get people onto 
the Main Street.” 

Ely News was unable to 
make contact with the bak¬ 
ery owner.

ART SALE: Derek and Margot Andrews, pictured at their recent 
60th wedding anniversary 


Ely artists 
sell a 
lifetime's 
work 
to raise 
money for 
refugees 

TWO artists are set to 
open their home and sell 
a lifetime's work to help 
those affected by the Syrian 
refugee crisis. 

Margot and Derek 
Andrews, from Ely, have 
decided to sell more than 
200 items, priced from £3 
to £50, including pottery, 
drawings, watercolours and 
acrylic paintings to benefit 
Save the Children's Syria 
Crisis Appeal. 

Mr Andrews said: "Our 
shelves and folders are full. 

It's an unusual sale because 
it's not to show our latest 
work but the work from our 
lifetime. We wanted to do 
something too to support 
the Syrian refugees so this 
seemed ideal. Save the 
Children does great work 


roviding education and 
ealth facilities to children 
who have lost homes and 
families" 

The couple, who recently 
celebrated their 60th 
wedding anniversary, taught 
art for 20 years in schools 
across the country before 
setting up a pottery by the 
river at Prickwillow in 1976, 
which they ran until 1996. 

Margot, who recalled her 
time at Prickwillow fondly, 
said: "We made a modest 
living from the pottery and it 
was a lovely way of life. We 


were able to go on holiday 
every year and painted 
wherever we went. We also 
worked on subjects nearer 
to home. 

"Derek has some 
paintings of Ely market and I 
love painting in gardens. 

"We do feel slightly 
sentimental about selling so 
many memories but we're 
photographing our work." 

■ The sale will take 
place at 15 Douglas Court, 
Ely, from 10am to 5pm on 
Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 
November. 


APPEAL 


Dog found with 
horrific injuries 


NICK WILLOUGHBY 

@ncaWilloughby 


A WOMAN from Ely, who 
found her dog badly wound¬ 
ed and in a pool of blood, is 
appealing for information 
as to what happened to him. 

Natasha Parr found her 
black Labrador Tyson bare¬ 
ly conscious and bleeding 
heavily from several horrific 
injuries last Monday even¬ 
ing. 

Ms Parr was in Cambridge 
when she received a call 
from her partner at 6.30pm. 
He told her to get home 
quickly as he could not find 
Tyson in the house. 

Ms Parr said: “It was re¬ 
ally windy and we assumed 
the gate must have blown 
open.” 

The pair searched for 
Tyson in the dark in fields 
nearby and called on neigh¬ 
bours to ask if they had seen 
the dog. 

After two and a half hours 
of searching, they eventu¬ 
ally found Tyson cower¬ 
ing behind a car near some 
houses. 

“He was lying on the 
floor and there was blood 
all around him. He was in

terror and absolute shock,” 
said Ms Parr. 

Tony Squirrell, who works 
for Ely-based firm A10 Taxis, 
had been helping search for 
the dog and he then offered 
to drive the injured animal 
and Ms Parr to Village Vet in 
Milton - free of charge. 

“He was bleeding from 
God knows where during 
the journey,” Mr Squirrell 
said. 

At the vet’s, Tyson was 
operated on, but his injuries 
were so severe, he had to 
stay overnight. 

“His back pad was hang¬ 


ing off,” said Ms Parr. “And 
the vets thought they would 
have to remove it. Luckily 
they didn’t need to. He had 
his dewclaw ripped out and 
his back leg had cuts and 
there was fur missing.” 

And the previously fun- 
loving Labrador appears 
to have been left mentally 
scarred by the crash. “He 
used to be very friendly, but 
now he’s very nervous and 
anxious,” said Ms Parr. “It’s 
really traumatised him.” 

Ms Parr has launched 
an appeal for information 
about what happened to her 
dog. 

“If he was hit by a car I 
don’t blame the driver,” she 
said. “But I do blame them 
for not stopping, if that 
was the case. It would have 
saved hours of searching 
and he wouldn’t have made 
it through the night if we 
hadn’t found him.” 

Anyone with information 
should contact Ms Parr on 
07519 664542.

Cathedral sparkles with 
gifts and festive food 

THOUSANDS of people flocked 
to Ely to get into the festive 
spirit as the popular Cathedral 
Christmas fair returned to the city 
for its fourth year. 

Around 15,000 visitors passed 
through the cathedral doors for 
the Christmas Gift and Food 
Fair over its three-day run that 
finished on Saturday. 

There were more than 150 
stalls, including artisan jewellery, 
woodworkers, embroiderers and 
food outlets. 

A cake sale raised £2,300 for 
East Anglia Children's Hospices 
- and included one donated 
by Great British Bake Off star 
Ian Cumming, who lives in 
Cambridgeshire, which sold for 
£ 100 . 

Describing the event, Lesley 
Ann Thompson, director of 
communications at Ely Cathedral 
and one of the event's organisers, 
said the atmosphere was 
"lovely". 

"It got very busy at times," 
she said. "But we have had so 
many wonderful comments from 
customers and volunteers alike." 

A moment's silence was held at 
noon on Saturday to remember 
those who lost their lives in the 
Paris terrorist attack the previous 
evening. 

Funds raised will go towards 
the upkeep of the cathedral 
building. 




CAMPAIGN 

Will's plea 
to complex 
developers 

LOCAL Green Party member 
Will Law has written to the 
developers behind Ely's new 
Cineworld complex urging them 
not to allow McDonald's and 
KFC to open at the site. 

Will, 22, from Littleport, has 
been campaigning against the 
fast food chains coming to the 
complex, which is planned for 
land off Down ham Road, since 
the beginning of October. 

As previously reported, his 
online petition has been signed 
by over 1,700 people, although 
East Cambridgeshire District 
Council says his campaign 
is effectively too late as both 
companies have already been 
given permission to open. 

When the Cineworld plans 
were approved in April, 
permission was also granted for 
a number of food outlets. 

But Mr Law is now trying to 
persuade bosses at Turnstone 
Estates, the firm behind the 
Cineworld complex, to ditch 
McDonald's and KFC for 
"healthier alternatives". 

In his letter, he says: "Now 
that the planning application has 
been approved, the power to 
help or harm the schoolchildren 
of Ely rests in your hands."

letter in full. 


COURT 


Woman, 58, gets 
two-year ban for 
neglecting cat 



JORDAN DAY 

@JordanDayCN 


A WOMAN has been banned 
from keeping animals after 
she admitted causing un¬ 
necessary suffering to her 
cat. 

Sarah-Jane Harrison, 58, of 
Larkfield Road, Ely, appeared 
at Peterborough Magistrates’ 
Court last Wednesday in re¬ 
lation to her cat, Millie. 

She pleaded guilty to of¬ 
fences under the Animal 
Welfare Act, of causing un¬ 
necessary suffering by failing 
to seek veterinary care to ex¬ 
plore and address her dete¬ 
riorating physical condition. 

Harrison was banned from 
keeping any animals for two 
years and made to pay £500 
costs. 

The RSPCA was called to 
Larkfield Road in July after 
Millie was found in an ex¬ 
tremely poorly state by a 
member of public. 


The cat was taken straight 
to a vet who said that she 
was so unwell that she would 
have to be put to sleep pre¬ 
vent further suffering. 

RSPCA inspector Alex 
Coghlan said: "Poor Millie 
was in an extreme state of 
neglect when I found her. 

“She was very under¬ 
weight, had secretions com¬ 
ing from her nose and eyes, 
and her left ear was full of 
blood and maggots. It was 
awful. 


NEGLECTED: 
Millie was 
in such poor 
condition that 
she had to be 
put to sleep. 

“There is no way anyone 
could not have known she 
was unwell and needed to 
see a vet. 

“This is a reminder that all 
owners have a duty of care 
towards their pets. 

“It is their responsibility 
to make sure they are taken 
care of and are taken to see 
a vet when they are unwell.” 

Anyone concerned about 
the welfare of an animal in 
Cambridgeshire should call 
the RSPCA on 0300 123 4999.

Reasonable 
control needed 

I AM sure that everyone would agree 
that there needed to be some control 
over boat mooring on the Great Ouse 
but I feel that the new arrangements 
may have backfired on the council. 
The stretch of river along Pegasus 
Walk is largely deserted at the 
moment and one wonders what the 
people employed to police the area 
are doing with their time. 

I would suggest that the mooring fees 
be scrapped twixt November and 
March and a 72 hour mooring charge 
imposed after 72 hours instead of the 
current 48 hours. 

This would seem to be a more 
reasonable approach and would be 
to the benefit to the businesses along 
the river as well as short stay boat 
owners.

Wear your sling 
on your back 

I REFER to the article about the 
new baby sling library group which 
appeared in Ely News last week. 
Whilst I applaud the essence of 
the facts of the reflux soothing, the 
bonding with the mother, the hands 
free condition and there being so 
many buggies on our city streets and 
the restrictions that brings, it brought 
to mind what I was told when in 
1969 I used one of the first slings 
available at the time. 

On a visit to my gynaecologist I was 
using the sling, wearing it on my 
chest so that I had my baby facing 
me. One look at this and the doctor 
reprimanded me quite severely saying 
"If in the event of your tripping, 
stumbling, who do you think hits the 
ground first and comes off the worst? 
A small baby who is in a dangerous 
position and very likely to have the 
head hit the ground heavily and you 
falling on top of the baby". 

The possibility of a stumble or a trip 
is a very real possibility so I implore 
mothers: use the sling by all means, 
but wear it on your back.

Can you help 
my research? 

I AM currently writing a novel about 
a German lady and her children 
coming to the UK at the end of World 
War Two as the wife, and adopted 
children of a member of our armed 
forces. (This is loosely based on the 
life of my Grandparents.) 

Whilst I have some information 
regarding the prejudices and 
discrimination faced by both 
grandparents and my parent in this 
situation I also wanted to find out 
more about what may have been 
experienced on a wider scale and 
wondered if any of your readers may 
be willing to share information with 
me regarding their experiences in 
order that I can do justice to the story. 
I am interested in the experiences of 
British Men or Women marrying a 
German person in the ten year period 
after 1945 and also the experiences 



High Seas beckon for Archie, 16 


SIXTEEN-year-old Archie Morrison Brown is 
preparing for the challenge of a lifetime. 

Archie, a sixth-form student at King’s Ely, is 
the second recipient of the school’s Tall Ships 
Youth Trust (TSYT) Award. 

The award is enabling Archie to embark 
on a seven-day voyage of the High Seas, 
where he will experience many physical and 
psychological challenges, and discover skills 
he may never have realised he had. 

The prize has been given by former 
King’s Ely pupil, David Andrew, who left in 
1959. Since attending King’s he has been 
passionate about sailing and has been an 
active volunteer for the Tall Ships Youth 


Trust since 1981, when he first went on a sail 
training voyage. 

David gifted the school a bursary for the 
first time last year for Year 11 students to 
apply. 

Toby Roney was the first lucky recipient to 
go on the week’s voyage. Toby shone on the 
expedition - he was recommended as a Full 
Watch Leader and will be returning to the Tall 
Ships as a volunteer leader. 

Sue Freestone, principal of King’s Ely, 
said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for 
adventure and personal growth. We are very 
grateful to David for making it possible.”

of any German children who may 
have come with their parent to be

situations and circumstances many 
of them faced and any and ALL

Help or harm - 
your decision 

Copy of letter sent to Tim Deacon of 
Tunstone Estates: 

I am a resident of Ely, and a former 
student of Ely College. 

I write to you on behalf of 1700 
people, including local MPs, 
politicians from every major political 
party, celebrity chefs, doctors, 
academics, and senior members of 
teaching staff at Ely College, who are 
wall concerned about the health of 
schoolchildren in Ely-we need your 
help. 

The announcement that McDonald's 
and KFC will occupy the two 


outermost units of Ely Leisure Village 
has caused widespread public 
concern about the proximity of these 
outlets to Ely College, The Lantern 
Primary School, and the Isle of Ely 
Primary School. 

I started a petition to East 
Cambridgeshire District Council 
about this issue, and they have 
advised us that you have the power 
to help us make a positive change for 
our community. 

We currently face a global obesity 
crisis where diet-related illness is a 
greater contributor than inactivity, 
alcohol, and tobacco combined. 

The rising level of obesity in the 
UK correlates with the increasing 
saturation of fast-food outlets in our 
communities. 

Fast-food contributes to the 
malnutrition of the most vulnerable in 
our society as cheap, unhealthy food 
is aimed at children through adverts 
on TV, social media, and around 
communities. 

The outlets planned for Ely Leisure 
Village breach the 400m minimum 
proximity guideline set by the 
government. 

Research has clearly shown that 
increased proximity of fast-food to 
schools increases consumption levels 
amongst pupils. 

It also shows that children will 
prioritise unhealthy options even 
when healthy options are made 
available. 

Furthermore, the inclusion of 
McDonald's and KFC as part of Ely 


Leisure Village, opposite the road 
from three schools, will significantly 
undermine any efforts in educating 
children on healthy eating. 

I am sure you sympathise with our 
concerns. 

Likewise, we appreciate that popular 
outlets are often considered necessary 
to make these complexes viable. 
However, there are numerous 
examples of similar-scale 
developments where healthier 
alternatives to fast-food are provided, 
and yet remain profitable and 
popular. Just nearby, both St Neots 
and Cambridge have taken this route 
successfully. 

Ordinarily, it is the District Council's 
job to protect communities' health 
- but in this case it was overlooked. 
They have admitted that they did not 
make any consideration of the health 
impacts of having fast-food so close to 
schools, despite central government 
guidelines. 

Now that the planning application 
has been approved, the power to 
help or harm the schoolchildren of 
Ely rests in your hands. 

If the cinema development goes 
ahead as planned, with fast-food 
chains so close to three schools, it will 
have a harmful impact on the long¬ 
term health of schoolchildren in Ely 
now, and in the future. 

Please do the right thing for the 
health of our community and, 
most importantly, the health of our 
schoolchildren for generations to 
come.

Thank you for 
finding my cat 

I WANT to say a big thank you to 
two ladies from Soham, who have 
re-united me with my cat. 

Tula went missing in March - eight 
months ago. 

I was devastated and put posters up 
all over Soham. 

The response was overwhelming, 
but all sightings were of other cats. 
Thankfully, due to these lovely ladies 
Tula is home safe and sound. 

She was found by a lady in Cley 
Street, who contacted the second 
lady, Emma, through her Facebook 
site for Lost & Found cats. 

Emma took Tula to the Scamper's Vet 
and because Tula is micro-chipped, 
the vet contacted me. 

So again, thank you both, I can't 
begin to tell you how happy I am.

Crime on hold 
for one hour? 

HAS David Kerridge of Broad Street 
taken leave of his senses? 

He asks in his letter to you (News 
12th November) for police sirens not 
to be sounded for one hour each day 
as they are presumably getting on his 
nerves. 

Well, Mr Kerridge, I think you should 
first appeal to all thieves, thugs, 
terrorists, wife beaters, victims of 
sickness and fires to avoid these 
events happening during a time 
nominated by you before telling the 
Police when to turn off their sirens. 

As for natural disasters, I suggest Mr 
Kerridge visits the Cathedral and 
asks God himself to give us all prior 
notice.

Cut your prices, 
charity shops 

HAS anyone else noticed a hike in 
prices in the charity shops of Ely? 
What a fine gesture it would be, if, 
before Christmas, these shops - for 
charity's sake - lowered prices by 
half (organised between themselves), 
for a few days only - leading up to 
Christmas?

The King's School Ely's Charity 
Concert in the Hayward Theatre, Ely 

I don't know how the King's School 
does it, but every year at this time 
of year, after what seems like only a 
few weeks of school, it produces a 
splendid concert in aid of charity. 

The usual groups were in the

programme, many containing new 
faces which meant a great deal of 
new learning to do, but the sounds 
were as commendable as ever. 

They included the King's Orchestra 
conducted by the Music Director 
of the school, Jonathan Kingston 
(pictured), King's Ely Senior String 
Orchestra directed by Mr Neil Porter- 
Thaw, a charming group of 'cellists 
called Spikes directed by Mrs Nikki 
Porter-Thaw, the Brass Ensemble 
and Training Brass directed by Mr 
Michel Sedgwick, the renowned 


King's Barbers directed by Mr Peter 
North, the Jazz Band directed by Mr. 
Julian Landymore, the percussionists 
in 'RhythmStix' directed by Mr Will 
Sivier, and the Concert Band directed 
by Mr Michel Sedgwick. 

The programme opened with 
King's Orchestra playing 'The 
Thieving Magpie' at a cracking pace 
clearly bringing out the cheekiness of 
the magpie. 

The rich string sounds of the 
Ely Senior String Orchestra made 
Milner's 'Scherzo for String' resonate 


beautifully and Spikes brought out 
the sonorous melody of 'Somewhere 
over the Rainbow' very well in the 
composition of the same name. 
Other highlights were some very 
sophisticated brass ensemble sounds 
in 'Keep Young and Beautiful', an 
authentically nostalgic sound in 'The 
Sound of Silence' by King's Barbers, 
some exquisite sonorous moments in 
'Here's that Rainy Day' by the Jazz 
Band, the sheer magic of primeval 
percussive sounds in 'Alpho Bravo 
Niner' played by Rhythmstix and the 


pomp and glory of 'Crown Imperial' 
played by the Concert Band. 

The Director of Music, Jonathan 
Kingston, the ninety plus performers 
and their teachers are to be 
congratulated for a splendid night's 
entertainment. 

The event raised money for the Ely 
Community Service Committee - for 
which John Smith gave a suitable 
speech of thanks and UNICEF.

NEWS IN BRIEF 

'Kick Ash' cake 
sale raises funds 
for cancer ward 

A CHARITY cake sale run by anti-smoking 
students at Witchford Village College has 
raised over £120 for a local hospital. 

The money raised by Kick Ash pupils has 
bought a coffee machine and other items for 
patients and families who use the Day Room 
at the Oncology Ward at Addenbrooke's. 

Kick Ash is a smoking prevention 
programme led by young people for young 
people. The aim is to encourage those under 
16 to spread the message to feel proud to be 
smoke free. 

The programme involves schools across 
Cambridgeshire and was developed originally 
by both Cambridgeshire County Council and 
the NHS. 

Brigitte McCormack, who works with Kick 
Ash on behalf of Cambridgeshire County 
Council's Camquit team, said: "The Kick Ash 
mentors worked really hard during their free 
time to organise the event and I am really 
proud of what they have achieved." 

Andre Santos, aged 15 and a Kick Ash 
Mentor at Witchford Village College, said: 
"We're proud to have raised this money for 
Addenbrooke's. Many of us at school know 
people who have been affected by cancer 
and we really wanted to help. Kick Ash is an 
amazing project and we're really proud to be 
smoke free." 

Acclaimed artist 
to launch display 

AN internationally acclaimed ceramicist is 
to open her Ely-based studio to present an 
exhibition celebrating Wicken Fen. 

Angela Mellor's display, which will be 
available for viewing at the studio on 
St Mary's Street starting November 28, 
promises to capture the "glorious, mysterious 
'Fen Light' in its many forms: dappled 
light dancing through new leaves, bright 
sunlight playing across the Lode, fen sedge 
silhouetted by reflections from the Mere". 

This has been an award-winning year for 
Angela, who was the silver award winner in 
the craft and design Selected Maker Awards 
for the second year running, as well as 
scoring prizes in Colorado. 

Alongside Angela's work will be art 
created by Lynne Windsor, who divides her 
time between landscape in painting and 
printmaking, having focused on the natural 
works - both in New Mexico and Lincolnshire 
- over the past 20 years. 

The studio will be open at weekends on 
November 28 to 29 and December 5 to 6, 
10.30am to 5pm. 

Top honour for 
the Merry Monk 

AN HISTORIC pub has been honoured for 
its "rustic" atmosphere and "flavoursome" 
dishes in the renowned Michelin Guide. 

The Merry Monk in Isleham, near Ely, was 
visited recently by inspectors who were so 
impressed with the food and setting they 
decided it deserved its own entry in the 
special food listing for 2016. 

Inspectors described the pub, which began 
life as a series of cottages in the 17th century, 
as "a quirky, rustic resaturant with beamed 
ceilings and farmhouse kitchen style decor". 

They congratulated the chef for "hearty, 
flavoursome dishes" that use local produce 
and are given a "personal twist". 

The pub is a family-run business that sells 
traditional English and European cuisine but 
updated for contemporary standards. 

The menu changes regularly so customers 
are advised to phone in advance.

Mayor cuts ribbon at 
Ely’s Highfield School 


SCHOOL 
EXPANDS: 
Official opening 
of the new 
extension to 
Highfields 
School in Ely, 
by Ely Mayor 
Lis Every, with 
headteacher 
Simon 
Bainbridge.

JORDAN DAY 

@JordanDayCN 


NEW facilities at Ely’s Highfield 
School have been officially opened. 

The city’s mayor, Lis Every, cut 
the ribbon of the special needs 
school’s state-of-the-art new wing, 
which has been built to accommo¬ 
date an increased pupil roll from 
104 to 124. 

The wing boasts a new Profound 
and Multiple Learning Disbabili- 
ties (PMLD) room, a sixth-form 
common room, a vocational life 
skills room, food technology room, 
ICT suite and a staff resources 
room. 

Two rooms in the existing school 
have also been refurbished to cre¬ 
ate two additional classrooms. 

The cost of the Education Capi¬ 
tal project was £1.36 million and 
the project managers were Faithful 
and Gould, working on behalf of 
Cambridgeshire County Council. 

The external area surrounding 
the new build has also been land¬ 
scaped with new hard surfaces and 
the Highfield Friends and Parent 
Association will be fundraising to 


create a new sensory garden and 
allotment plots next year. 

Maz Baker, income generator at 
Highfield School, said: “The wing is 
phase one of a two-phase building 
improvement and extension pro¬ 
gramme at the school. 

“Phase two, as yet unapproved, 
would include a hydro therapy 


pool, gym, changing rooms and 
community space for wider paren¬ 
tal support.” 

Highfield’s head teacher, Simon 
Bainbridge, is also working with 
Cllr Every to try and come up with 
challenging opportunities for the 
school’s older pupils. 

Maz said: “Ideas being evaluated 


include a pop-up cafe in Ely, sup¬ 
ported work experience with local 
businesses and establishing col¬ 
laborative business partnerships to 
launch a new social enterprise put¬ 
ting Highfield pupils in the driving 
seat of business.”

Army destroys 
live grenade 


NEIGHBOURS have de¬ 
scribed their shock after a 
hand grenade was found in 
a garden near their homes. 

Police officers and a bomb 
disposal team from Col¬ 
chester Troop, 621 Squad¬ 
ron, 11 EOD Regiment Royal 
Logistic Corps were called to 
a property in Back Hill after 
the grenade was found in¬ 
side the trunk of a fruit tree. 

The discovery was made 
last Tuesday afternoon by a 
tree surgeon who was cut¬ 
ting down the dead tree in 
the garden. 

The Second World War 
vintage grenade, which still 
contained explosives, was

destroyed. 

An Army spokesman said: 
“The grenade was left in 
situ overnight and moved 
to fields off the A142 to be 
destroyed in a controlled ex¬ 
plosion at 8am on Wednes¬ 
day. 

“Destroying the grenade 
was the safest thing to do 
in the circumstances, as old 
ammunition can be quite 
unstable. 

“For safety reasons we 
do not carry out controlled 
explosions in the dark, but 
the grenade was guarded 


overnight by police and de¬ 
stroyed as soon as was prac¬ 
tical. 

“We would encourage the 
public to raise the alarm if 
they do have concerns about 
any suspect items they find 
and not to touch them. It is 
better to be safe than sorry.” 

Neighbours spoke of their 
shock. 

One said: “We couldn’t 
believe it when we saw so 
many police officers and the 
bomb squad down the lane 
at the back of the garden.” 

Another said: “It’s certain¬ 
ly not the sort of thing you 
think you’re going to find in 
your garden is it?”

HISTORY 


NEWS IN BRIEF 


Hunt for cigarette case 
which saved pilot’s life 


JORDAN DAY 

@JordanDayCN 


A WAR veteran is desper¬ 
ately trying to find the ciga¬ 
rette case which saved his 
life - and it could be in the 
Ely area. 

Ron Buckland was a 
Halifax bomber pilot with 
the Yorkshire-based No 640 
Squadron, Leconfield, dur¬ 
ing the Second World War. 

It was on the afternoon of 
December 24, 1944, during 
a raid on Essen/Muhlheim 
airfield, that his life - and 
probably the lives of the six 
members of his crew - was 
saved by his cigarette case. 

The case was in his right- 
hand pocket and up under 
his ribs as he sat at the con¬ 
trols of the bomber. 

Over the target, the Hali¬ 
fax was peppered by shrap¬ 
nel from anti-aircraft fire 
which damaged two en¬ 
gines and the tail-plane. 

A piece of shrapnel struck 
the pilot on his right-hand 



MISSING:

Buckland,

hasn't seen 
the cigarette 
case that 
saved his 
life for 71 
years. 


side, flung him against the 
wall of the cockpit and ren¬ 
dered him unconscious. 

It transpired that the 
cigarette case had taken 
the brunt of the shrapnel’s 
power but it had been driv¬ 
en into his side. 

Although the cigarette 
case had been savagely 
twisted and torn, it had 
protected Ron from grevi- 


ous injury. 

The Halifax eventually 
made landfall over East An¬ 
glia and managed to land 
at the emergency airfield at 
Woodbridge, near Ipswich. 

Ron was taken to Ely’s 
hospital and spent two 
months in recovery before 
returning to operational 
duties. 

He and two members of 



his crew were subsequently 
awarded the DFC for their 
efforts that day - a further 
member was awarded the 
DFM. 

The cigarette case was 
a present from Ron’s fa¬ 
ther, who had carried it 
throughout the First World 
War. 

Ron, who is now in his 
90s, says that it disap¬ 
peared in the days after 
landing at Woodbridge 
and he has not seen it 
since. 

His friend Bill Nor¬ 
man, an aviation writ¬ 
er from Cleveland, is 
now desperately trying 
to help reunite Ron with 
the cigarette case. 

He said: “I have written 
on two occasions about 
Ron’s lucky escape 
on Christmas 
Eve, 1944. 

“Now 
in his 90s, 
he finds 
his mind 


ingly pre-occupied with 
the fate of his cigarette 
case. 

“We know that 71 years 
is a long time and that the 
chances of any informa¬ 
tion coming to light are 
remote. In spite of that, we 
think it is worth a try. 

“Ron spent two months 
in Ely hospital so it could 
certainly be in 
the Cam¬ 
bridgesh¬ 
ire area.”

COMMUNITY 

Step up to help 
Pumpkin Fair 


MORE volunteers are des¬ 
perately needed if one of 
Soham’s most popular com¬ 
munity events is to go ahead 
next year. 

Thousands of people at¬ 
tended the town’s annual 
Pumpkin Fair on September 
26 and this year’s fair raised 
£2,000 for local charities. 

The money has been split 
equally between Weatherall 
Primary School’s allotment, 
Little Miracles, Soham 
Young Farmers and Soham 
Heritage and Tourism. 

But Mark Williams, chair 
of the pumpkin fair com¬ 
mittee, says the future of the 
event is at risk unless more 
local people get involved. 

He said: “We would like 
to thank all our sponsors, 
helpers and members of the 
public who came along and 
enjoyed the fair this year. 

“However, the down side 
is we are very short of com¬ 
mittee members and if the 
fair is to carry on then we do 
need more people to come 
and help, otherwise we may 


JORDAN DAY 

@JordanDayCN 


not be able to run the fair. 

“The committee is re¬ 
sponsible for the organi¬ 
sation and execution of 
everything that is required 
to ensure that each year’s 
pumpkin fair runs success¬ 
fully and that all resources 
that are required are ob¬ 
tained and managed, all ex¬ 
penditure is accounted for 
and all funds distributed to 
the chosen charities. 

“Work on the planning of 
each fair starts soon after 
Christmas and committee 
meetings are held on the 
first Monday of each month 
at the Carpenters Arms pub¬ 
lic house in Brook Street at 
8pm to co-ordinate work 
and assign tasks as they 
arise. 

“If you feel that you would 
like to join the team, and 
you are able to commit to 
the effort required not only 
throughout the year, but on 


the day of the fair as well, 
when we have a huge variety 
of work which the commit¬ 
tee performs, ranging from 
erecting stalls and manag¬ 
ing a barbecue to booking 
produce in for competitions 
and weighing pumpkins 
(and a host of other tasks 
inbetween!), then you are 
probably the person that we 
need.” 

The fair has been running 
since 1975 and is held annu¬ 
ally on the last Saturday in 
September. 

As well as gigantic pump¬ 
kins and other produce, visi¬ 
tors also get to enjoy vintage 
vehicles, bygones, charity 
stalls, arena displays, and a 
funfair, to name just a few - 
with all funds raised going to 
local organisations. 

To get involved with the 
fair, email office@soham- 
pumpkinfair.co.uk.

A COUPLE from Soham have 
taken Christmas decorations 
to a new level in order to raise 
money for charity. 

John and Helen Attlesey, 
who used to run Soham 
Nurseries, have decked their 
house in Julius Martin Way 
with thousands of lights and 
models. 

“Each year we have a really 
big switch-on,” said Mrs 
Attlesey. “And this time there 
were hundreds of people 
there.” 

The Attleseys began to 
pull out all the stops when 
their grandson, Jacob, 12, 
was diagnosed with severe 
epilepsy five years ago. With 
the help of a donation box, 
they realised they could use 
their hobby to raise funds for 
Great Ormond Street Hospital 
and East Anglia Children’s 
Hospital, both which helped 
Jacob during treatment. Mrs 
Attlesey said the reaction to 
the lights is fantastic. 

‘Jacob loves them when he 
sees them each year,” she 
said.

READY, SET, GO: Stretham Community Primary School pupils will join staff, parents 
and governors for the fun run, which is being held this Sunday. 


FUNDRAISING 

School set 
for 5k run 


PUPILS at Stretham Community 
Primary School are taking part in 
this weekend’s Ely Festive 5K Fun 
Run for the third year running. 

However, this year a record 
team of 49 students, staff, gover¬ 
nors and parents from the school 
have signed up! 

As previously reported, the 
event is on Sunday, and all funds 
raised go to the Arthur Rank Hos¬ 
pice. 

Four hundred people of all ages 
will be putting their best - mostly 
fancy dressed - feet forward to 
raise money for the hospice’s vital 
end-of-life care services. 

Deputy head teacher, Sarah 
Lund, said: “We first became in¬ 
volved with Ely Festive 5K to keep 
fit and raise money for a good 
cause. 

“Some staff members had loved 
ones cared for by the hospice so 
we have always felt passionately 
about it. R is lovely to see how the 
running bug has spread across 
the whole school community. 

“If you are motivated to sup¬ 
port our pupils please visit our 
JustGiving page: justgiving.com/ 
strethamfestive5k/.” 

The event is supported by the 


JORDAN DAY 

@JordanDayCN 


Ely News, Ward Gethin Archer 
and The Cambridge Building So¬ 
ciety. 

The fun run is now sold out, 
although the charity is appeal¬ 
ing for volunteers to help run the 
event and for people to support 
the participants on the day 

Donna Talbot, director of fun¬ 
draising at the hospice, said: 
“This is such a great event to be 
involved in and the team, includ¬ 
ing all our volunteers, are always 
smiling, and often laughing out 
loud at the brilliant efforts put in 
by the fun runners. 

“We have had some fantastic 
outfits, including last year’s piece 
of Christmas cake, alongside Ru¬ 
dolf and his sleigh, which broke 
halfway round and had to be car¬ 
ried to the finish by half-a-dozen 
snowmen!” 

The race starts on Ely’s Market 
Square at 11am, with participants 
usually completing the route by 
lpm. 

To volunteer, call (01223)

LETTER TO SANTA 


As Christmas approaches the Royal 
Mail is reminding children they can 
write to Santa at the North Pole. 

Workers at the Royal Mail are 
delivering thousands of children’s 
letters to Father Christmas as they 
do every year. 

Letters should be sent before 
December 6 to reach him in time. 

One heart-warming letter 
sent last year from Scarlett from 
Manchester asked for her presents 
to be sent to children in hospital. 

She wrote: “Dear Mr Santa, I would 
like my presents to go to a children’s 
ward.” 

Chief Elf Alex McConnell 
said:”Royal Mail plays a special 
part at Christmas. We are proud 
that for over 50 years Santa has 
allowed us to help manage the 
thousands and thousands of 
special letters he receives from 
boys and girls across the UK. 

“His special team of elves at 
Royal Mail enjoy taking a peek 
at what children are asking 
for, and helping Santa reply to 
these special letters. Remember 
to include your full name and 
address on your letter so 
Santa can reply to you!”

Festive 

stamps 

SCENES from the traditional 
nativity story are depicted 
on this year's Christmas 
stamps. 

Royal Mail 
said the 
six stamps 
feature 
scenes from 
the Biblical 
story of 
the nativity 
from the 
Annunciation and the birth 
of Christ. 

The stamps were illustrated 
by London-born artist David 
Holmes. 

Andrew Hammond, of the 
Royal Mail, said: “Christmas 
is a stamp issue we 
particularly look forward to. 
The charming style of these 
designs sets the perfect 
tone for the festive season.” 

Recommended posting 
dates this year are 

December 19 for second- 
class mail, December 21 for 
first-class and December 

23 for special delivery. 

There will be no deliveries 
from Christmas Day until 
December 29, as Monday 
December 28 is a bank 
holiday.

filCTVt HOME SECURITY 

I As the festive shopping gets under way, homes become more attractive 

W to burglars. Lisa Salmon reveals how to ensure your house is secure 


EXPERT ADVICE FOR A SECURE HOME 


Crime prevention officer 
Chris Joyce, from West 
Yorkshire Police, points 
out that burglars look for 
opportunities - an open 
window, an unlocked 
door, a house in complete 
darkness and attractive 
items on view through 
windows. 

And as people are often 
out at work dos, late-night 
shopping, carol concerts 
and other events over the 
Christmas period, it’s vital 


that homes are left looking 
occupied. 

He says: “We want 
this to be a very merry 
Christmas for members 
of the public, but I really 
want to remind people 
how important it is to keep 
their home secure. 

“I would encourage 
people not to put presents 
under the tree before it’s 
absolutely necessary - 
items that have taken a 
lot of saving up for may 


be very attractive to a 
burglar. Coming home to 
find that presents have 
been stolen would be 
absolutely heartbreaking, 
and something that 
nobody should have to go 
through. 

“We’re urging residents 
to consider what the true 
cost of burglary would be 
to them and take some 
simple steps to reduce 
their chances of a burglar 
ruining their Christmas.” 


IT might sound like the plot of Nineties’ 
Christmas classic Home Alone, but the 
festive season - with its visits to family 
and friends and, of course, all those 
presents - attracts burglars to homes. 

Research from Halifax Home 
Insurance has shown a 25 per cent 
increase in December theft claims, with 
an average of nearly 50 claims made 
each day over the Christmas period. 

So, there’s never a better time to step 
up your home security - and for the 12 
days of Christmas, here are 12 festive 
security tips, compiled with the help of 
the DIY security company Swann. . . 

1. Even if you don’t have children 
to hide presents from, make sure 
criminals can’t see them through your 
windows and doors by hiding them in 
cupboards and under beds. 

2. If you’re going away for Christmas, 
make the house look lived in. Turning 
on lights when no one’s at home 

in winter can deter burglars. You 
can buy timers that will turn lights on 
automatically, or just ask a friend or 
neighbour to keep an eye on your 
property, open and close curtains and 
put lights on. 

3. If you’re going away, ask a neighbour 
to park their car in your driveway to 
make it look like someone’s home. 

4. Keep an eye on any suspicious 
behaviour in the neighbourhood. 
Security cameras for inside and outside 



the home can enhance your home 
security and peace of mind, but as 
they’re not within everyone’s budget, 
being vigilant has to be the next best 
thing. 

5. Make sure all windows and doors are 
firmly shut and locked when leaving 
home. Leaving an entry path slightly 
open is a temptation for a burglar. 

6 . Don’t leave notes for couriers saying 
no one’s in. Make sure you’ve sent 
instructions about where to leave 
parcels if you’re out. 

7. Make sure all packaging is ripped up 
and buried in bins, so criminals can’t 
easily see what’s been added to an 
already festive-filled house. 

8 . Don’t openly display your Christmas 


tree and gifts in the front window so 
it's easily visible from the street. It can 
be tempting for criminals to smash the 
window and grab wrapped packages. 

9. Make sure your outside lights 
aren’t burning 24 hours a day, and 
newspapers or advertising flyers aren’t 
piled up through your letterbox. Again, 
you might need to ask a neighbour to 
collect your mail and free papers if you 
go away. 

10. Burglars know to look for the hidden 
door key near the front entrance. 

Don’t hide spare keys under rocks, 
in flowerpots, or above door ledges. 
Instead, give the spare key to a trusted 
neighbour. 

11. Burglars prefer to enter through 


unlocked doors or windows, so an 
electricity extension cord running 
through an open window to exterior 
Christmas lights can be an open 
invitation. Hire an electrician to install 
an inexpensive exterior outlet for festive 
outdoor lights. 

12. Make sure your family name isn’t visible 
outside your house, like on a mailbox. 
Criminals can get your number from 
directory enquiries and call your home 
to confirm there’s no one in. And don’t 
leave descriptive telephone answering 
machine messages like “We’re away 
skiing for Christmas, please leave a 
message.” Burglars love to hear they 
have plenty of time to ransack your 
home.

CHRISTMAS 

RECIPE 


Pulled Gressingham 
Duck Wreath 


This pulled duck wreath is fantastic as a sharing platter with 
friends at a festive dinner party, or if you’re having a drinks party, 
why not make it into canapes serving the shredded duck and 
berries in gem lettuce leaves or Chinese style pancakes? 

Serves 6 as a sharing starter 
Prep: 5 minutes 
Cooking/Resting time: 3 hours 


Ingredients 

• 1 whole Gressingham Duck 

• Vs pint cider 

• 14 pint cider vinegar 

• 1 garlic bulb, broken into cloves 
then crushed 

• A selection of salad leaves 

• 1 pomegranate - seeds removed 
and kept 

• 1 small bunch of red grapes 

• Handful of dried whole cranberries 


For the rub 

• 1 teaspoon ground cumin 

• 4 teaspoons smoked paprika 

• 1 teaspoon ground coriander 

• 1 teaspoon ground allspice 

• 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder 

• 1 teaspoon ground black/white 
pepper 

• 2 teaspoons salt 

• 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar 

• 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard 


Gressingham has lots of recipes along with ‘how-to’ videos 
on their website gressinghamduck.co.uk. 


Method 

1. Pre-heat oven to 190°C / Gas Mark 5. 

2. Mix all the rub ingredients together. 

3. Take 2/3 of the rub and rub onto the inside and outside of the duck. 


4. Place the duck into a deep roasting tray; pour in the cider and the 
vinegar. Cover with foil and place into the oven for VA hours. 

5. After 1 % hours reduce the temperature to 150°C / Gas Mark 2. Continue to 
cook for 1 hour. 

6 . Then increase the heat to 200°C / Gas Mark 6, remove the foil and cook 
for 10 minutes to crisp up. 

7. Remove from the oven and allow to rest somewhere warm for 30 minutes. 

8 . Meanwhile, prepare the ‘wreath’. Place a large plate on the surface you 
are serving from to create a circular stencil. Shape the leaves around 
the plate and scatter the pomegranate seeds, grapes 
and cranberries over the leaves. Remove the 
plate to reveal the ‘wreath’. 

9. Using two forks, 
shred or ‘pull’ the 
duck and place 
the pulled meat in 
the middle of the 
wreath, where the 
plate was. Sprinkle 
some, or all, of the 
remaining rub onto 
the duck. 

10. Serve as a sharing 
dish for everyone to 
dig into. Alternatively, 
make into canapes 
serving the shredded 
duck and berries in gem 
lettuce leaves or Chinese 
style pancakes.

ROUND UP 

• TICKETS are now on sale for 
the Fordham Charity Group’s 
23rd Christmas Celebration 
Concert. 

The concert will take place 
at the Victoria Hall, Fordham 
at 7.30pm on Saturday 19th 
December and will feature 
The Wicken Coronation Band, 
Singer Janet Scott, accompa¬ 
nied on piano by Frank Taylor 
and Carols for the Audience. 
Tickets priced at £6 each are 
available from Fancy Pants 
shop in Carter Street, Fordham 
or by calling 01638 720674. 

All proceeds to Macmillan Can¬ 
cer Support and Arthur Rank 
Hospice. 

• Nina Conti is one impressive 
lady. 

She’s won a British Comedy 
Award, stormed Live at the 
Apollo and Sunday Night at the 
Palladium, and made a BAFTA- 
nominated 
film - all 
without 
moving her 
lips. We 
bow down 
to you, 

Miss Conti. 

For her 
new show, 

In Your 

Face - a complete sell-out at 
the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe 
Festival - the comedian and 
ventriloquist, who is the daugh¬ 
ter of actors Tom Conti and 
Kara Wilson, will be making the 
audience her puppets (literally), 
and is promising an “impro¬ 
vised adventure of hilarious 
witchery!” 

So basically, if the idea of audi¬ 
ence participation makes you 
quiver with fear, probably best 
to stay away, but brave souls 
definitely need to get involved - 
it’s going to be a right laugh. 
Nina Conti, Cambridge Corn 
Exchange, Saturday, Novem¬ 
ber 21 at 8pm. 

Tickets £21 from (01223)

DANCE THEATRE 



Magical dance theatre 


D ESH, a contemporary 
dance piece by 
celebrated performer 
and choreographer Akram 
Khan, was an instant hit 
when first performed 
in 2011, and this new 
adaptation for little ones 
promises to be just as 
magical. 

Chotto Desh, meaning 
'small homeland', draws 
on Khan's unique knack for 
cross-cultural storytelling, 


creating a compelling tale of 
a young man's dreams and 
memories from Britain to 
Bangladesh. 

Using a unique mix 
of dance, text, visuals 
and sound, Chotto Desh 
celebrates the resilience 
of the human spirit in 
the modern world and 
promises to be a magical, 
thrilling and poignant dance 
theatre experience. And, 
for youngsters inspired by 


what they've seen on the 
stage, Cambridge Junction is 
also running a Chotto Desh 
dance workshop for kids 
aged 7-11 from 4-5pm. 

Prepare to be amazed, 
people. 

Chotto Desh, Cambridge 
Junction, Sunday, 
November 22 at 2.30pm 
and 5.30pm. Tickets £6-

DICKENS ABRIDGED COMPETITION 



Win Dickens tickets 


T HE Reduced Shakespeare 

Company are bringing their magical 
show, Dickens Abridged, to Ely as 
part of its national UK tour. 

And Ely News has teamed up with Arts 
Development in East Cambridgeshire 
(ADeC), which has organised the event, 
to offer readers the chance to win 
tickets. 

The prize is for a family ticket (for two 
adults and two children) to the fast- 
paced musical comedy, which is being 
staged at The Makings, in Ship Lane, on 
Saturday, November 28. 

Caroline Cawley, from ADeC, said: 
"Full of Christmas spirit, this show is a 
singing, dancing love-letter to the life 


and works of the great man. 

"This is Charles Dickens, unlike 
anything you've seen before. 

"It's a chance to see a London show 
live on stage in Ely." 

The show has been reviewed as 
"witty and unexpurgated" by The Stage 
and BBC Radio Four said it is: "Highly 
original and VERY FUNNY." 

The show starts at 7pm. 

To be in with the chance of winning, 
simply answer the following question: 

On which English writer is the show 
based? 

Email your answer to jordan.day@ 


‘This is Charles 
Dickens, unlike

L AND Rover continues to 
broaden the appeal of 
the Discovery with the 
launch of - the Landmark and 
the Graphite. New distinctive 
exterior design features to both

to the Landmark bring more 
luxury and exclusivity. 

These models give the 
Discovery even greater 
on-road presence than ever 
before. Available to order

the roads from January 2016 
onwards. 

"The appeal of the Land 
Rover Discovery has just 
got even greater. We have

which offer the customer 
greater on-road presence 
and enhanced comfort to 
complement the Discovery's

and exterior features that offer

W ITH the launch of 

almost every new car, 
we see the march 
towards motors becoming an 
extension of the smartphone. 

It's a rapidly growing 
area for car makers as they 
seek to make their vehicles 
more compatible with the 
smartphones that have 
become an essential item in so 
many drivers' daily lives. Yet, 
should we be embracing this 
technology leap or wondering 
if we really need it? 

The benefits of turning 
your car into a mobile high- 
tech internet provider are as 
varied as they are appealing. 
You can access emails on the 
move, the kids can stream 
music and video to keep them 
entertained, and it allows you 
access to all of the apps and 
functions on your phone. 

With all of this tech, it turns 
the car into one giant mobile 
wi-fi hotspot. So much so, in 
fact, that Vauxhall proudly 
points out the "fin" on the 
roof of the new Astra acts as a 
much stronger mobile phone 
aerial than the one in your 
phone, so it's better to use the 
phone via the car. 

It's all very clever and 
there are undoubted safety 
advantages of a car being able 
to hook up to the internet. For 
instance, if you are involved 
in a collision, systems such as 
E-call and Vauxhall's OnStar 
can contact the emergency 
services automatically. 



IN-CAR WIFI: Cars aren't 
smartphones 


However, these are 
automatic systems that can 
easily be allowed to run in the 
background where the driver 
is unaware of them in normal 
driving conditions. As they go 
unnoticed by the driver, they 
are also not a distraction, and 
this is where cars as mobile 
wi-fi hotspots and an extension 
of our phones demands more 
scrutiny. 

With so many functions, 
apps and opportunities 
available through a 
smartphone now, it is a huge 
temptation for drivers to make 
use of them when driving. 

Take these functions away and 
the driver may feel cheated 
out of a huge library of music, 
email and texts on the move. 

However, while some might 
feel cheated, they will actually 
have much more time to 
devote to their driving and 
awareness of what is going on 
around them. This is the crux 
of the matter. 

The law says we aren't 
allowed to use a handheld 


mobile phone when driving 
in the UK. We are allowed 
to hold a cigarette, though, 
or a drink, and nobody has 
been prosecuted for plucking 
a sweet from the packet 
while driving. It is not the 
physical act that is necessarily 
distracting, but the amount 
of mental power devoted to 
the task. 

Picking a sweet from a 
packet is simple and you very 
quickly return your hand to the 
steering wheel and your mind 
to the job of driving. 

Use a mobile phone when 
driving and you need one 
hand to hold the phone and 
that is clearly dangerous. 

What is more dangerous, 
however, is the amount of 
brain power required to hold a 
conversation while driving and 
how much that distracts the 
driver from controlling the car. 

If you add in the extra 
distractions of listening to 
email messages and texts being 
read out by the car, alongside 
choosing music and a route for 
the satnav, and you have a raft 
of tasks that rob the driver's 
attention from the road ahead. 

Banning wi-fi in cars is not 
an option, nor practical, but 
there is another solution: 
switch off your phone when 
driving. With your phone 
switched off, your brain will 
be fully switched on to the job 
of driving and that is the best 
safety system you can have in 
a car.

ASK 

Esther 


SHOULD I CLAIM 
FOR MY INJURY? 


Dear Esther, I was stationary in my car at the traffic lights 
when another car smashed into the back of me. I suffered 
severe back pain and whiplash for months. Should I make 
a compensation claim? 


ESTHER SAYS: I’m sorry to 
hear about your accident. If 
the accident wasn’t your fault 
then you should claim. It is 
very easy to do, phone 0800 
157 1451 and speak to an 
experienced advisor at 
Accident Advice Helpline. 
Their Solicitors specialise in 
getting you maximum 
compensation and work on a 
NO-WIN NO-FEE* basis. The 
process is fast and 
hassle-free. It should only take 
around five minutes to find out 
if you can make a claim. 


Thank you 

7 was working in a 
busy kitchen and 
suffered a serious 
head injury. Accident 
Advice Helpline 
helped me through 
my recovery and 
I received £6,500 
compensation. ”

MARTIAL ARTS 



SUCCESS: From left to right, Cerys Easey, Harvey Gillham (Newmarket), Hanna Sikora, James Munday and Carrie Lord won medals 


Farnham pupil Cerys makes it look Easey 


CERYS Easey earned a 
double triumph at the 
TAGB North Midlands 
Championships in Derby. 

Easey, from the Ely branch 
of Mark Farnham Schools of 
Tae Kwon-Do, came out on 


top in girls' red belt sparring 
and team sparring. 

Clubmate Matt Seymour 
was runner-up in the men's 
green belt team sparring 
category. 

Carrie Lord and James 


Munday were third in 
sparring in the girls' black 
belt and boys' blue belt 
classes respectively, while 
Hanna Sikora claimed 
bronze in girls' blue belt 
team sparring. 


Instructor Farnham 
said: "This is a great 
achievement. Well done 
to those who supported us 
and we now look forward to 
our next competition - the 
British Championships." 


TABLE TENNIS 

Woollard and Everitt 
are fine doubles act 


CLIVE Woollard and Tony Everitt com¬ 
bined to win the crucial doubles and 
earn Soham a hard-fought 6-4 success 
over Fulbourn II in Ely & District League, 
Division One as they maintained their 
good start to the season. 

Nigel Bates gave Fulbourn an early 
lead with his win over Ian Boggie, but the 
match was soon level as Everitt defeated 
Phil Hague. 

Woollard was the next to face Bates 
and, after recovering from two sets 
down, he looked to have gained the 
advantage and was favourite to take the 
game. 

However, Bates had other ideas and 
recovered his composure to win the 
deciding set and keep Fulbourn in the 
match. 

Inspired by Bates, Hague took on 
Boggie in what proved to be a real nail- 
biter, which he eventually won 16-14 in 
the deciding fifth set. 

Everitt then took up the challenge 
of breaking Bates’ winning streak and 
all looked promising as he moved into 
a 2-1 lead, but Bates refused to give in 
without a fight and held his nerve to take

the fourth set 18-16 before winnning the 
decider to level things up at 4-4. 

Woollard recovered from losing the 
first set to defeat Hague in the final 
singles match, with Woollard and Everitt 
triumphing in the doubles to wrap up 
the victory. 

Maximums for Kieran and Christian 
Mohan helped Ely I triumph 8-2 over 
Comrades I, for whom Robin Wallis and 
Kin Choi Chan registered points. 

Colin Adams had two good wins over 
Joanne Pettitt and Rob Boyce, and Jeff 
Catlin also beat Boyce when Impington 
I visited Ellesmere I. 

However, they were the Imps’ only 
points as Rhys Davies and his colleagues 
swept the rest of the board. 

In Division Two, Colin Fotland won 
three and Richard Smart had two success¬ 
es as Elsworth II overcame Countess 6-4. 


Steven Jugg, Brian Mitchell and 
Robin Gammon all beat Jason Cart¬ 
wright for the losing team, and Jugg also 
beat Smart. 

Ely III paid the price for only taking 
two players to Comrades II as their 
opponents Alan Chambers, Martyn 
Hagon and Martin Logan ran out 7-3 
victors. 

Their three points were registered by 
Neil Weir and Fred Laband, who both 
beat Hagon and claimed the doubles. 

Jack England and Thomas Pizey re¬ 
corded maximums when Ellesmere III 
got the better of Comrades IV 8-2 in 
Division Three. 

Edward Garrett-Jones and Pete Clar- 
ingbold got the points on the board for 
the losers. 

The match between Fulbourn V and 
Haddenham II was in the balance at 4-4 
going into the closing stages. 

But the former took the spoils as Adi 
Nori beat Joshua Curry and then Nori 
and Robert Powell took the doubles. 

Earlier, Nori had beaten Adam Curry 
and Ben Nightingale, and Powell had 
seen off Nightingale and Joshua Curry. 


POWERLIFTING 

Baty puts in a Special 
performance for gold 

TOM Baty retained 
his National Special 
Olympics powerlifting 
crown in Bradford. 

The Ely lifter, 
who has Down's 
syndrome, claimed 
the title in his weight 
class with a 165kg 
dead lift. 

Baty, 32, took 
an early lead in the 
opening series of squats 
with a 150kg lift and 
followed it up with a 
personal best of 100kg 
in the bench press. 

With a huge dead 
lift in the bag, Baty, 
who trains at Ely's 
West End Gym with 
coach Paul Smith, 
took gold with a 
personal best overall 
total of 415kg. 

Baty's father 
Richard said: 

"His efforts in 
Bradford were quite 
extraordinary."

Smith out of competition 


RILEY Smith's hopes 
of glory in the NABGC 
Championships were ended 
in the regional finals at 
Harlow. 

The Haddenham & Ely 
boxer saw off Billericay's 
Jake Gibson on a split 
decision in the Anglia 
under-69kg final. 

But he could not overcome 
Lewis Payne from Sheerness' 
Minster Golden Cloves club, 
going down on a split verdict 
despite being involved in a 
close-fought contest. 

Coach Mike Sawyer 


said Smith had still been 
showing the after-effects of 
a recent bout of tonsillitis 
across two fights in three 
days, but believed he had 
done enough to have got 
the nod over Payne. 

He said: "He was giving 
a bit of weight away to 
Gibson and he still wasn't 
100 per cent fit, but he won 
that one and got through. 

"He boxed very well 
against Payne in the 
regional final and it was the 
toss of a coin. He was very 
unlucky he didn't get it."

Harlow claims Scottish crown 


GREG Harlow breathed a 
sigh of relief after watching 
Jason Greenslade pass up 
an opportunity with the 
final bowl of the match, 
as he secured the Co¬ 
op Funeralcare Scottish 
International Open title at 
the Dewars Centre in Perth. 

With the encounter poised 
at 1-1 and one apiece in the 
tie-break, City of Ely player 
Harlow held shot within two 
feet of the ditch, but had 
dropped well short with his 
final delivery, to leave the 
Welshman the chance to 


Bowls 

knock off the former world 
champion's green bowl and 
secure a first-ever Scottish 
Open title. 

But Greenslade was too 
wide with his measured 
drive, missed the shot 
bowl and had to settle for 
the runners-up spot, with 
Harlow raising his arms aloft 
in celebration as he ran out 
an 11-4, 6-8, 2-1 winner. 

"To leave anybody a shot 
like that for a take-out, I was 
standing there thinking 'it's 


Jason and he doesn't miss 
many of these'. It was relief 
- and delight - when I saw it 
just slip wide," said Harlow. 

"It's a slightly longer 
format so you have to pace 
yourself a little bit and try 
not to play too much risky 
stuff early on and just keep 
drawing, but there was really 
nothing between us. 

"I just got a little break 
over two or three ends that 
gave me a cushion to go on 
and win the first, but in the 
second there was nothing 
in it."

Robins ease 
to away win 
at Halstead 


Football 

ELY City romped to a 5-1 win at Halstead 
to continue their impressive form in the 
Thurlow Nunn League, First Division on 
Saturday. 

The Robins made a bright start but it was 
Halstead who opened the scoring early on 
following a free kick. 

The goal sparked Ely into life, and they 
equalised shortly afterwards through Sam 
Goodge. City went in front moments later 
when Goodge netted his second after a neat 
dummy from Alex Theobald. 

It remained 2-1 at half time, but Brady 
Stone’s team extended their lead early in 
the second half when the Halstead keeper 
fumbled a shot, allowing Theobald to finish 
from 10 yards. 

Craig Neal made it 4-1 as Ely took 
complete control of the match, and he 
grabbed his second to complete the scoring 
and give City a convincing win. 

Soham Town Rangers earned a well- 
deserved point after a challenging home 
fixture against Phoenix Sports in the Ryman 
League, North Division. 

Heavy rain made conditions extremely 
difficult, and both teams struggled to 
create many chances in what was a closely- 
contested affair. 

The match appeared destined to end in a

goalless draw when, with just five minutes 
remaining, the visitors went in front with a 
wonder strike from 20 yards. 

Soham responded to the setback superbly 
though, and just two minutes later a fine 
cross from Callum Russell, on as a substitute 
for Simon Swinton, found Ross Paterson in 
the box. 

Paterson made no mistake to score his 
first goal for the club and round off another 
impressive display in attack. 

The Greens might have even snatched 
victory had Jordan Gent’s knock-down from 
inside the penalty area fallen to a team-mate, 
but instead Phoenix were able to clear their 
lines and the match ended in a 1-1 draw. 

“The pitch was hard to play on because of 
the rain,” said Soham joint-manager Robbie 
Nightingale. 

“The lads showed great character and 
resilience after conceding. They kept going 
right to the end. We can’t fault the players’ 
attitude, work rate and desire. 

“If we’d won, that might have been a bit 
harsh on Phoenix so a draw was probably a 
fair result.” 



Neale and Coupland score for Tigers 


TRIES from Ricky Neale and 
Charlie Coupland earned Ely 
a 15-5 victory at Woodbridge 
in Greene King IRA Eastern 
Counties One. 

The Tigers forced 
Woodbridge into an early 
penalty, which Matt McCarthy 
struck from long range, but 
the ball bounced off the 
crossbar and allowed the 
hosts to clear their lines. 

From another penalty, 

Ely kicked to the corner 
and from the rolling maul, 
Neale controlled the ball at 
the back to touch down an 
unconverted try. 

But the rain was preventing 
any of Ely's attempts at 
flowing rugby. 

Woodbridge managed to 


Rugby union 

drew things level after forcing 
the ball wide round the Ely 
defence, but the visitors 
regained their lead by half 
time through a Joel Scott Paul 
penalty after the hosts were 
penalised for offside. 

As the rain continued to 
fall and the pitch churned 
up, Ely were able to hold 
Woodbridge away from their 
line. 

Ely had three five-metre 
scrums brought to a halt and 
they also had two attempts to 
get over the line held up. 

But they earned some 
breathing space when 
Kevin Houghton flicked a 
wonderful, out-the-back 


off-load to Coupland, who 
sprinted into the corner for a 
try, with McCarthy kicking the 
conversion to seal the win.
