We welcome Marilyn & Simon to the Red Lion The pub is fast becoming a vibrant hub of the village. There is an excellent new menu with food served every day. Why not give them a try? - you will be made very welcome. There are now two new bus services in the village - both to the new Rushden Lakes Shopping and Leisure site - see page 44. The Stagecoach bus is on a Saturday only and is from/to Olney so gives an option to also travel to Olney. The Diamond Coaches bus is on a Wednesday only. Both take bus passes. We were pleased to have been invited to take part in Helen Blaby’s BBC Radio Northampton programme on the 22nd May when she focused on Bozeat. She and her researcher were very complimentary about the magazine, which was much appreciated, and it was lovely to hear representatives from many of our services, clubs and societies as well as a local historian. Special Happy Birthday wishes to Pat Driver, who co-ordinates advertising for the magazine, as she celebrates a ‘milestone’ birthday in October! Thank you to David Brown for his front cover picture taken at Easton Maudit with a poppy field in full bloom in the foreground. We have been asked to remind anyone who is setting fireworks off from their gardens to ensure that they set rockets so that the remains don’t land on any thatched roofs in the village. Thank you.

The last week of the summer term is always bitter-sweet. We hope we have supported our year 6 children to become lifelong learners and confident individuals. We hope we have also helped them to develop a strong moral code and a set of values to guide them through life. We wish them happiness and success in the future and I am sure that September will not only be a nerving but exciting time for them all. We are also saying goodbye to a number of families who have been associated with our school for many years. We would like to say thank you to them for being part of our school community and for all the support they have given us and our children over the years. I feel very privileged to work with such a dedicated staff team and I would like to thank the whole staff team. We welcome two new additions to our teaching team; Mrs Helen White, who will be leading our Nursery class and Miss Lucy Hanlon who is our new Year 4/5 teacher. I would also like to thank the team of wonderful volunteers who come into school weekly to listen to readers and practice key words. I would like to take this opportunity at the end of this academic year to give a special thank you to our group of voluntary school governors and to acknowledge the time and energy that they give to school. Our governors provide support and challenge to leaders at school to ensure that we are constantly improving our provision. The work of our governors is vital to ensuring that our school provides quality education and I am very grateful that this excellent team is so willing to give up time to monitor, evaluate and challenge our work in school. Mr David Snape is an incredibly supportive and knowledgeable Chair of Governors and I would like to thank him for his fantastic support this year, I could not have wished for better support and advice.

Emmaus Village Carlton receives royal award and celebrates seven new bedrooms
Help in School
Emmaus Village Carlton recently celebrated a double achievement.
We are always on the lookout for volunteer helpers in school.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Mrs Helen Nellis, presented the local homelessness charity with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. Customers from the charity’s popular charity shop and bistro, as well as well-wishers from the local area, gathered at the charity’s community buildings in Carlton to witness the presentation. The Mayor of Bedford, Mr Dave Hodgson, continued proceedings by then officially opening ‘Silverbirches’ - new accommodation on site, including seven new rooms and two flats. The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to voluntary groups across the UK for their outstanding work in the local community and has equivalent status to an MBE. The opening of Silverbirches sees Emmaus Village Carlton’s accommodation facilities increase to 42 bedrooms. Emmaus Village Carlton supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to regain lost self-esteem to help rebuild their lives.

Infant Aquatics lead the way in new submerging approach for baby swimming. Infant Aquatics is a long standing baby led swim school, always using the most recent and up to date information and research to ensure its techniques are the safest and create a positive experience for babies. Founders Carly and Mel are proud to be members of Birthlight, the charity who work globally with experts and are always at the fore front of new developments within the aquatic environment. In recent year’s new research by internationally renowned infant swimming expert, Mr. Terje Stakset has shown that deep submerging is not always in the best interest of baby and can cause unnecessary stress. Mel says “Our whole ethos is baby led; securing a safe and happy environment so we were extremely interested in this information and research. From the day we started teaching we never advised submerging if a child was upset but we did teach deeper vertical submerging- that was until we met Terje Stakset- his approach along with our Birthlight training made total sense – why were we teaching deep submerging when ultimately we wanted children to swim on the surface? The shallow, child elective approach fitted our entire beliefs. We have found by using the approach our children rarely go through a time when they do not want to put their faces in or have a wobble so we believe it is working and if they choose to dive deep it is because they want to!’ As well as changing some of their submerging techniques they also stopped offering underwater photography as they didn’t want it to be a negative experience for some babies. Carly says “We now teach babies and children to swim with their face in the water and naturally develop shallow water submersions electively. This is so powerful and a positive way forward. Of course, they get to a point where there’s no stopping them, but I’m proud to say it’s all about working at baby’s pace and never forcing them to do something out of their control”. Contact us... We run lessons every day of the week and babies can start swimming with us from 6 weeks. For Bedford, Wellingborough and Wollaston pools– [email protected]

Northamptonshire Carers is a local charity based in Wellingborough, that supports unpaid carers across the county. As we approach the Silver Jubilee of our organisation, we have decided to launch a major initiative to raise funds to allow us to increase the provision of what feedback from the Carers themselves tell us is the most popular of our offerings - the opportunity for Carers to take holiday breaks, even if only for a few days, sometimes with the cared for. In this county alone, there are over 69,000 identified Carers including over 6,000 Young Carers. The physical and emotional demands on Carers mean that they are far more likely to succumb to anxiety, depression and illness. A break away or a change of scenery every so often can make all the difference to the Carer’s well-being and therefore to the well-being of the cared for. Why not hold a Coffee Morning or support one of our fund-raising events: Golf Day: Monday 18th September Collingtree Park (£200 team of 4 with dinner) Black Tie Gala Dinner: Saturday 21st October 7 pm Park Inn, Northampton (£45 pp) Northamptonshire Carers Centre 123 Midland Rd, Wellingorough NN8 1LU 01933 677837 Email: [email protected]

Your time to shine at our first Access to Higher Education open evening Climbing the ladder of success is now one rung closer as the University of Northampton hosts its first Access to Higher Education open evening. The Access to Higher Education Diploma is a qualification which prepares people without traditional qualifications for study at university. Future students who want to start such a course can come along on Monday 25 September and meet local college staff to find out more about the course and sign-up for one. Current Access students who wish to continue their studies at Northampton are also invited, to meet our lecturers and talk about the courses on offer at University of Northampton. You can also ask questions about what it’s like to study at Northampton, what the workload is like and how flexible courses can be in regards to childcare and part-time working. Professor Nick Petford, University of Northampton Vice Chancellor, himself studied for an Access Course before enrolling for a degree: “After a shaky start and some forgettable jobs, I enrolled for an Access course that was essentially three science ‘A’ levels condensed into nine months. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made and I haven’t looked back since. “Our mission at the University of Northampton is transforming lives and inspiring change. My story shows this is more than just fancy words. With our help the same can be true for you too. Our open evening starts at 5:00 pm on Monday 25 September at our Park Campus, Northampton, NN2 7AL and free child care and refreshments will be provided. The evening will include an optional tour of ‘Waterside Street’, an instillation about our new Waterside Campus that will open in September 2018. To register contact: [email protected]

10th ANNIVERSARY. Yes we’ve been going ten years and celebrated after our walk on 15th July with lunch in a walker's garden, that was the idea but rain made us retreat indoors but it went very well anyway.

BOZEAT LADIES DINNER Anthea Cooke, 666009, email: [email protected]
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN DATE FOR LADIES DINNER NIGHT It is with regret that the 'Ladies Dinner' committee has had to cancel the forthcoming dinner on Friday 6th October. However, we are planning to hold it on Friday 9th February 2018. Please read the December issue of Bozeat Matters for further details. THE TEA ROOM Pam Freely (663841) and Lynne Saving (664828) We enjoyed a very, very special Lunch-Out in May with Carol Robinson’s family. Thank you Shellie for arranging that – it meant so much to us all. We also enjoyed Lunch-In in June with an M&S spread – what can be better than good food, a glass of something, and good company. We are looking forward to Lunch-Out at the Red Lion in Bozeat on 15th August and another Lunch-In on 19th September. We have been delighted to welcome some newcomers and others returning. Please do join us in the meeting room of The Little Chapel, Dychurch Lane, between 2 pm and 4 pm any Tuesday for tea, coffee, cake, chat, puzzles. BOZEAT ENVIRONMENTAL CARE GROUP Diane West, 663342 A Big THANK YOU to those residents who take the time to sweep and keep tidy outside their properties. It makes such a difference..... If you have a paper shredder and use it please do bag the paper before putting it into the Recycling Bin - that way it doesn't fly away when being emptied. Lots of cans are thrown around Bozeat - please DO bin them. Similarly cigarette butts - small but hundreds are thrown down in Bozeat and it takes a long time to sweep or pick up - by us so please dispose of them properly. Wherever you are in the village there will be litter bins nearby - if not - please take rubbish home. Walking the village you will see lots of overhanging branches from residents gardens. Owners do please lop regularly so they do not inconvenience people walking by. We regularly walk in from the Olney end and the Quarry end of the bypass and clear rubbish. The Council do some but a lot is flung out of cars when passing through our area. A great shame. We also try and keep tidy the area outside the shops.
THANK YOU to anyone who has made donations to Bozeat Matters recently.
We meet on the Village Green on the Ist Thursday of each month - at 2.30 pm. You are very welcome to join us. Next dates are:- 7th September, 5th October, 2nd November, 7th December; sticks and bags are provided.
We are very grateful for your support.

BOZEAT COMMUNITY HALL NEEDS YOU
Debbie Horsman spoke about Shackleton’s Forgotten Men at our May meeting. Debbie is an indirect relative of A.P. Spencer-Smith who was one of Ernest Shackleton’s men ~ a relative had given Debbie some interesting papers from that Antarctic expedition of a hundred years ago. While on a cruise to visit Shackleton’s grave on South Georgia Island, Debbie met Henry Worsley who had successful retraced Shackleton’s steps in 2009. We were told of the dramatic true story of the 1915-1916 Antarctic tragedy and survival of the heroic crew of Aurora who were to arrange food supplies in huts across the Great Ross Ice Shelf, in preparation for Shackleton’s expedition on his final part of the trek from the South Pole to the Ice Shelf. Due to the bad weather Shackleton’s plans to sail Endurance from South Georgia to the Weddell Sea area of Antarctica were scuppered, so he and his crew did not make the trek. As no contact was made with the Aurora about the aborted trek, the men did as planned and delivered the food supplies ~ the outcome being that the crew of the Aurora had been left to their own devices, and they were Shackleton’s Forgotten Men. If you were near the Little Chapel at 8pm on 14th June you would have seen the Fish & Chip van delivering just to us, as we were having a personal ‘fry-up’ for our June F&C supper meeting. Twenty-two members enjoyed an ‘evening with a difference’. We were at Ampthill W.I for our July meeting, and listened to stories in the life of retired BBC journalist Bill Hamilton. With his opening video pictures Bill introduced himself as Man on the Spot. Bill’s journalistic life of fifty years had him taking interviews in many places from Palaces to Prisons, War Zones to Football, and he met many known people including Mother Teresa, Sarah Ferguson and Norman Wisdom. His first passion was refereeing, and achieved fame at 14 by being the youngest referee. Bill went into journalism, and aged 22 was reporting the news on television at Newcastle ~ we heard about his nerves before reading his first live Six o’clock News. Bill commented on shorthand notes now replaced by wi-fi with computers/tablets, and how photographing incidents by mobile phone and transmitting it worldwide in seconds, beats any journalist’s report. Journalists today have to prepare their own editorial for TV and Radio, and modern technology is there to do so as today’s public want News ‘just as it happens’. Maybe one of our evening Talks interests you, if so please come to listen at a cost of £4 and have a cup of tea/coffee. You will be very welcome if you wish to join Bozeat W.I.
The Church Hall will hopefully soon become Bozeat Community Hall It will be run by the village for the village The hall had over 350 bookings last year. With the closure of the Methodist Chapel and the Working Men’s Club, plus the restricted access to the school, the hall is now the only village venue with the capacity to facilitate community events of any size. To make the hall viable we urgently need your support and for people to come forward to be involved. Are you interested in getting involved? Do you have a few hours a month spare? Whoever you are there is a task for you! Please phone 07834 213861 to talk to us or email [email protected]

After sixty-eight years it is with great regret that plans to close Bozeat W.I. on 31st December 2017 may have to be put in place. This is because Bozeat W.I. is having difficulty in recruiting new committee members, which includes a new President and a new Treasurer to take over at our AGM in October. Without a Committee, a President, and a Treasurer, it will not be possible to continue running Bozeat W.I. Are you willing to be one of the people to take Bozeat W.I into 2018, and beyond ? Please contact Carol on 663282 as soon as possible if you can help to keep us going.

What a wonderful summer we’ve had, celebrating ten years of Cafe Connections, a fresh expression of church in Bozeat, which started in July 2007. It was lovely to welcome back some ‘old’ faces and to hear how God has impacted their lives through Cafe Connections. The Fun Day at The Vicarage was also a great success with over 100 people enjoying various activities with good food and an opportunity to chill out with friends and family.
Did you know that Northamptonshire has more than its share of passionate food and drink producers creating everything from mouth-watering pies to tasty cakes to thirst quenching beers, ciders, juices and spirits?
As I write, some Cafe Connections regulars are planning for a new season and we pray that God will continue to guide us and to bring people closer to him. If you have ever been to Cafe Connections, we would love to hear from you if you have any thoughts about how we could improve and develop. If you don’t ‘do church’, what would need to happen to encourage you to walk through the door one Sunday at The Little Chapel, St Mary’s or the Church Community Hall (Cafe Connections meeting place)?
To find out more about the county’s amazing array of tasty treats and to support the ‘buy local’ ethic, please visit the Made In Northamptonshire page on Facebook -http://www.facebook.com/ MINFoodandDrink or call Rachel Mallows on 01933 664437.
If you’ve never completed an Alpha Course, do consider coming to the free Introduction Supper on 20th September. There will be no pressure to join the course which starts the following week; just good food, a short talk and an opportunity to hear from a couple of people who have recently completed Alpha. See below for more details.

WOLLASTON CRICKET CLUB David Ward, 663951 At the time of writing it’s been a tough season for the First Eleven with the initial win eventually materialising in July. The five-wicket victory against Northampton Saints was comprehensive and a sigh of relief was heard around the Club. This was followed up two weeks later by a ‘winning draw’ against Geddington when we amassed the huge total of 237 for 8, only to see Geddington hold on to avoid defeat on 178 for 8 in their 50 overs. Our Australian colleague Tom Doyle was the star of this game with a top score of 85 and a wicket haul of 5 for 28 off 15 overs. The highest First Eleven individual total so far however was 95 off 146 balls made by Harry Broome against Finedon. Chris Perry’s 5 for 28 away at Geddington has proved to be the best bowling return for the First Eleven up to the end of July. The Seconds are riding high in division three win nine wins from fifteen games, and are one place off the promotion spot. Marcus Shelton made hay while the sun shone at Stony Stratford when he compiled 91 stylish runs before the heavens opened and the game was abandoned. One run behind Marcus was Mark Carter at Heyford where he made 90 not out before tea, after which Steve Musgrave remarkably took 7 for 23 in 10 overs to wrap the game up in Wollaston’s favour. The Thirds meanwhile will endure a shortened season due to Grendon Thirds pulling out the League and Weekley & Warkton forfeiting both the home and away fixtures due to lack of players. Despite this however, notable wins have been achieved with several youngsters stepping up from the Under 15s, contributing and making a good impression. Notably, the 326 for 5 against Kettering 3rds (Nathan Dawson 80) set a new Third team record, beating the previous best of 323 against the same opposition in 2015. Andrew Monteith’s 84 not out – containing 14 fours and 2 sixes proved the winning knock against Brigstock 3rds when he and Andy Luck put on 142 for the first wicket to chase down the opposition’s 140. Our juniors have had an outstanding season. The Under 15s have won six games out of nine and are joint top of their division. The Under 13s lie in second place in theirs, and the Under 11s have won nine, lost none, and are 8 points clear of second placed Finedon. Our Under 9s have competed successfully in several tournaments around the County and the Tournament at Wollaston was a huge success. We were lucky with the weather again on the WCC Fun Day where families mingled, children played and a good time was had by all. At the time of writing our Under 19s are waiting for their next T20 Knock-out Cup game following their overwhelming win at Brixworth.

On the Centenary of The Battle of Passchendaele we remember our six village men who did not return home to Bozeat.
Summer is all but over. The long summer school holidays, that stretched before us only a few weeks ago, are ended. As you read this article mums and dads have already bought new school uniform and trudged the shoe shops for new shoes and plimsolls.
Hopefully our children and grandchildren are looking forward to a new school year. New teachers. New friends. New schools or universities. Some will be tackling new subjects never broached before. As they grow into young people they will find the world a different place from their sheltered lives. New challenges. New issues to deal with and come to terms with. Decisions to be thought over carefully. Responsibilities for them to face up to.
Edwin Harris Arthur R. Luck Alfred Page Alfred George Tomkins
We need to be aware of all these things and consider how we interact with our children and young people.
Thomas R. Warner Remembered with Honour on the Tyne Cot Memorial, Zonnebeke, Belgium and on our war memorial in Bozeat Cemetery.
Jesus knew exactly what to do. In Mark chapter 10 v13 - 16 we read how parents were bringing their children to Jesus for him to bless them. His disciples tried to turn them away, saying Jesus was too busy. But Jesus would have none of it. He sternly told his disciples to leave them alone. He turned to the children, put his arms around them and blessed them. We can do no better than that; assure our children of our love and pray for them.

More likely the show will have already taken place by the time you read this, so may we take the opportunity to thank everyone involved, whether exhibitors, the judges, those that have helped in any way on the day or in the run up to the event and, of course, everyone who has come along to the Show. There will be a full report in the December edition of Bozeat Matters, and in the meantime a full list of winners will appear on the village website Bozeat.info/BozeatShow and our Facebook page BozeatAnnualShow, with photos of the day! BOZEAT BOWLS CLUB Carol Witherden, 631405 We continue to have a good turnout for each of our sessions. A group of us are now taking part in the Earl Spencer Cup, sponsored by Age UK. We are halfway through the tournament. We have had mixed results but believe we have played well at each match. We have certainly enjoyed the games so far. We have had a few members drop out of the club for various reasons recently and so we are once again in a position to offer places for anyone wanting to have a go at short mat bowls. We meet every Monday afternoon, except bank holidays, at St Mary's Church Hall, from 2.00 4.00 p.m. If you would like to give the game a try please just turn up; we will be very pleased to see you. We have some spare woods so you need not bring anything with you. BOZEAT & EASTON MAUDIT BELLRINGERS Tony Manktelow (Tower Captain), 665113 07771 612321 Email: [email protected]
Bozeat entered the Wellingborough Branch striking competition in June this year and came a credible 3rd. The competition was held at Orlingbury. Not the easiest of bells and very difficult to listen to in the belfry. The competition was won by Orlingbury. Rushden were second and Bozeat third. Our quality and range of ringing continues to improve. A notable achievement in July was that we rang some courses of Cambridge Surprise Minor with a purely Bozeat band (and with a ringer to spare). The first time that has ever happened. I’d like to try for a quarter peal of Cambridge later in the year to cement this achievement for us. We are still looking for new recruits to the band. Anyone interested in learning to ring should either come to practice on a Thursday evening or get in contact with me. Tony Manktelow, Tower Captain Bozeat & Easton Maudit churches 25
