Barroway Drove Community Website :: Archives for: August 2010, 04 >>>

Dragon boat racingThis year there will be 28 teams and each race will be competed by four dragon boats.
Kerry Heffernan of Downham Market Town Council said four boats in each race will make for some really exciting racing and will be great to watch.
So the message from the organising working party is Come on.
Get your team entries in quickly we only have a few team spaces left
The Water Festival is an annual event and is free of charge for spectators who will also find lots to entertain them ashore as well as watching the racing.
Nobody goes hungry with a good selection of food outlets doing a roaring trade.
Lots of stalls, a roundabout, trampoline bouncing and funfair complete the line up.
A complete fun day for all the family and entry is free!
Programmes are available in mid July from LEWKS in Wales Court, Downham Market.
Howard Phillips, Chairman of the Working Party, said we are all volunteers and thoroughly enjoy organising this special day every year.
I should like to thank Downham Market Town Council for their backing without which we could not hold the event.
And special thanks too to Archant for their generous sponsorship, and the Borough of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk too.

Barroway Drove Community Website :: History Day in Village Hall >>>

On Sunday 14th October the Social Committee held a History Day in the Village Hall, and despite the road closure, were very pleased that so many people came along to have a look at the old photographs and other memorabilia from bygone days
We hope there was something for everyone, including tales of village life how things used to be, village ghost stories, wartime stories, including facts about the two planes that crashed during World War II, and information about the draining of the Fens.
It was also a rare opportunity to see Mike Browns aerial photographs from the 1960s and 1970s.
An article in the Lynn News (12 October) told a story about two families connected by a village tragedy that happened almost ninety years ago; because of this article three people attending the day discovered a family connection that none of them knew existed and spent much of the afternoon studying their family tree!
Several people attending had lived in the village at one time but we were also pleased that several people attending were newcomers everyone was very welcome.
Admission was free and proceeds from the sale of refreshments went to Village Hall funds.

>>HERE<< Story by Jo Garner: Copyright Downham News/Lynn News. A Barroway Drove couple have discovered more information about their family after making contact with long-lost relatives in Canada through the village website. Kay and Geoff Beckett were approached by Vicky Howling, who passed on details she had received from Joan and Jerry Hooks, of Ontario, who were trying to find further details of Jerry's grandmother, Margaret, who was born in Barroway Drove. "Jerry's grandmother was sister to Geoff's grandmother, Sarah," explained Kay, who intends delving further into her husband's ancestors as a hobby during the autumn months. "We knew there were some cousins in Canada, but we didn't know who they were or where they lived. We've been able to fill them in with quite a few details but there are still some parts of the puzzle we have yet to solve," explained Kay, who has been swapping images of old postcards and family pictures along with the information since contact was made with the Canadian couple. She explained that Geoff's great grandmother, Susan Ivitt, was married it Isaac Jackson at Nordelph in 1873. They had three daughters, Sarah who was born in 1876, Betsy born in 1880 and Margaret born in 1882. Sarah married James Beckett and they lived in Barroway Drove all their lives, and had two sons and a daughter, Betsy, who remained single, lived in Taylors Row in the village, while Margaret emigrated to Canada. Kay added: "We know that Geoff's great grandmother died in 1915, but we still haven't managed to find out what happened to Betsy even though she lived in Barroway Drove all her life and we still don't know how Margaret came to go out to Canada. "it's a bit like doing a puzzle and trying to find the missing pieces," said Kay, who has received copies of documents from the Canadian side of the family, "We get regular e-mails from the now," she added. Jay had already spent some time looking up details of her own family and had just started delving further into the Beckett's past when news of the Hooks' inquiry came through. Geoff, a retired farmer, has lived in Barroway Drove since his early childhood and his father was born in the village. "At least we have been able to fill in some of the gaps but there are still lots more pieces to find. We have lots of old postcards and photographs of the family, but I just wish I had asked my mother-in-law a lot more questions when she was alive," said Kay. "It's made me realise how important it is to write the dates and who is who on the back of my own photographs so our own children don't have the same problems." The Hooks' original e-mail to the Barroway Drove website in July included an old photograph of the school, which immediately drew the attention from Vicky, who has a keen interest in local history and has traced her own family back seven generations, just in the village. "We started exchanging e-mails and when the name Beckett came up I got in touch with Kay and Geoff," she said. "It all happened within a few days, and I'm so please, because of my own involvement in family history. It's just nice to be able to put other people in touch with long-lost relatives.

Hopefully by now the October edition of the Village Newsletter should have been posted through your door.
For those not fortunate enough to receive a paper copy of the newsletter you can read it here.
Or download it here.
The newsletter does have one error that needs to be pointed out.
The Children’s Halloween Trick or Treat night says that Children under 8 need to be accompanied.
In fact all children attending need to be accompanied by an adult.
As you might imagine walking down the road in the dark will require careful supervision.
The event is usually well attended so please bring your Children along and join in the fun.
If you wouldn’t mind the Children stopping at your house, please keep a watch out for the group as they move up the Village.
As you can see from the Newsletter the prizes for the Grand Christmas Draw are certainly worth the effort of buying a ticket.
The tickets will be available at any of the Autumn events ready for the draw to be made at the Christmas Bingo on the 13th December.
One last point, the Barroway Drove Social Committee have their AGM on the 18th November at the Village Hall.
Please come along and support the Committee that does so much for the Village.
Without the committee there wouldn’t be any of the activities run throughout the year.

Residents of Barroway Drove and the surrounding area are invited to have a go at making a miniature replica of their homes to be displayed on a giant map of the village over the summer.
Adults and children are invited to come along to sessions being held over the summer and try their hand at model making.
The idea is to bring the villages past to life by building a 3D map of the village and recreating historical points of interest by making models of buildings like the school and the chapel both of which are now residential dwellings.
People can also make models of present day buildings.
Every summer the village hall committee hold a series of activities for the children of the village and surrounding areas; these events are always popular and this we have decided to combine the usual activities, which include arts and crafts and tie-dyeing, with the model making.
The activities will be open to all ages. The sessions will take place on the first 3 Wednesdays of the school holidays.
The model village will be on display at the villages annual Flower & Produce Show in August.
Dates for your diary:
31st July:
10am 12noon
In an English Country Garden if you like arts and crafts come along and make flowers, insects and plants to decorate the map or take home if you prefer!
7th August:
10am 12noon
Build your dream home make houses of the past, present or even the future!
And build shops, pubs, swings & slides, make a miniature telephone box or even a cricket pavilion!”
14th August:
10am 12noon
Colour your world experiment with colour, paint your models or tie-dye a tee-shirt! (Remember to bring a plain white tee-shirt)
All above activities are 1 per person.
Under 8s must be accompanied.
18th August
Village Yard Sale: 10am – 4pm
Flower and Produce Show: 12noon 4pm
Schedules for the show will be available from mid-July.

Today has seen a much needed site update.
The photos of the Flower, Produce and Craft Show are finally up here.
Sorry for the delay I’ve been suffering technical difficulties. Assuming laziness is classed as a technical difficulty?
You might not see your entry for the show in the photographs, I’ve limited the number of photographs to 100 from the few hundred taken on the day so it’s limited to class winners.
We’re nearly at 500 photographs on the Gallery, if you have any you want to submit either register and upload them or drop us an email at webmaster@barrowaydrove.org for help.
Don’t forget we can scan images for you if you only have them in hard copy.
The second update is on our History site (click the History button above or here).
We’ve been given 130 photographs for the site, the first wave of updates are on the Barroway Drove School page and the Village Hall page.
Take a look at the site and let us know what you think.
Don’t forget you can update and add pages to the History site yourself.
If you aren’t confident with editing Wikis drop us an email at webmaster@barrowaydrove.org and let us know what you want edited.
Can you name any of the people in the photographs or perhaps help us track down the year in which they were taken?
Please let us know.

What is RSS? (and Atom?)

RSS stands for both Rich Site Summary and Really Simple Syndication but it always refers to the same technology.
It is a mean of transmitting and updating news in an automated way.
Most news sites (including virtually all blogs) will publish what is called an RSS feed which is regularly updated with the latest available headlines and/or articles.
The RSS feed is not human readable. It is an XML format which is designed to be read by machines rather than humans.
Reading RSS
To take advantage of an RSS feed you would use a piece of software called an RSS aggregator. Most of them are very similar to email client programs, but instead of incoming emails, they display news from various sources (from all the feeds you have registered with, or “subscribed to” as is commonly said but it has nothing to do with money). Unread news typically appear in bold, just as unread emails do.
An RSS aggregator makes it very convenient to follow up on news from a large number of sources in a single place. SharpReader is an example of an RSS Reader.
Just like there is webmail, there are also are web-RSS-aggregators. Bloglines is such an online aggregator. Il allows you to track all your news from a single place you can access with a regular web browser.
Also, most modern web browsers will also handle RSS feeds, but in a limited manner. They will use an RSS feed as a dynamic bookmark folder with automatic bookmarks to all the news in the feed. Unlike aggregators, browsers will not save the news if you don’t check on them every day.
Finally, on a more professional level, some websites will aggregate news from different sources onto a single site. Hence the “syndication” in the name.
Producing RSS
While you could theoretically write an RSS file by hand and update it regularly, writing XML manually is a tedious task.
Most RSS feeds are produced automatically by the same content management software which also generates the web pages dynamically. All blog tools for example can generate RSS feeds on the fly. b2evolution is an example of such a blog tool.
Different flavours
There are different versions of RSS in use. RSS 2.0 is the most common. It is used for news/blog feeds as well as for Podcasting.
A newer format, called Atom, is a more standardized way of providing XML content updates. However, it has not gotten wide acceptance yet outside of the blog communities. (Again, almost all blog tools can generate an Atom feed on the fly.)
More info about the history of RSS, RDF & Atom.

We have been contacted by the organisers of the Downham Market Water Festival to help advertise the event and perhaps get a Barroway Drove team together.
Insert your own jokes here about dragons in the Village.
The event is being held on the Great Ouse Relief Channel, next to the old Thurlow Nunn premises on the 10th August.
The organisers hire in a company who supply and organise everything to do with the dragon boats.
To go part way towards paying for them they are charging 150 per boat this year.
Each boat has 10 paddlers and one drummer.
They have a mix of corporate and club/pub teams entering.
Most get their crews to seek personal sponsorship which pays for the team entry and raises quite a lot extra which they can donate to their chosen charities.
They provide the dragon boats, a professional helm who will also give the team a bit of coaching before they race, buoyancy aids, safety boat cover etc.
At the time of their email they have 6 boats left to fill.
Junior teams (min. 12 years old, max. 16 ‘ish) can compete for their own trophy.
This year each race will be between 3 dragon boats.
Each crew will get three races.
The crews with the best times go onto the finals.

Barroway Drove Community Website :: We are a Village! >>>

Following on from the discussions earlier this year we have now recieved a letter about the fate of the house numbering scheme for Barroway Drove.
The Council have decided we are indeed a Village and as such we need to have a name for the road.
There are two options, The Drove and Main Road.
There was some objection at the meetings to Main Road and it appears this has been listened to because the Councils preference is for The Drove.
However, they have left the decision up to us and enclosed a form that can be posted back to the Council to make your vote.
For a bit of background the road actually needs a name and can’t be the same as the Village name, it’s something to do with the way the post address would work and if it wasn’t made different we would actually become part of Stowbridge.
I’ll make no claim to the accuracy of that statement but that’s the vague recolection of the conversation had with the Council at the public consultation.
Just out of interest I’ve created a poll on the forum to canvas opinion from our users.
Nothing official but just to get a feel for peoples preference.
The poll is here – http://barrowaydrove.org/smf/index.php/topic,404.0.html
and for those of you not aware of the House Numbering Scheme please take a look a the documentation here – http://barrowaydrove.org/smf/index.php?action=mgallery;sa=album;id=4

DOWNHAM MARKET: Energy-saving home – Community News – Lynn News

ON-GOING efforts to make his home more energy efficient have earned Paul Page national recognition and a place in the countrys top 130 super-saving homes.
The Barroway Drove plant driver has already invested heavily in thermal and solar systems, a biomass boiler along with extra insulation and is well on his way to zero-carbon rating.Ive reduced my Co2s by 92 per cent and if I can just get planning for a small wind turbine I reckon Ill be able to reach the 100 per cent efficiency – and thats where I want to be, said Paul, who now has an extra incentive.Ive just been told Im to be a grandfather so now I feel Im doing this for an even better cause. I dont want my grandchildren having to cope with nuclear waste and if we can all do our little bit to help reduce our carbon footprint we may just be able to make a difference.The person from the National Energy Foundation who did the inspection reckons some of the new homes are not as efficient as mine, but once you get started on this road theres no turning back and I still go round the bungalow turning off lights when not needed.Pauls property is also one of Norfolks Green Buildings, an initiative in partnership with the Council for the Protection of Rural England.Wind turbines sometimes stir up issues about noise and they do have to rotate at a fair speed to generate energy, but sound from a 4.9 metre turbine in a strong wind is actually cancelled out by other outside noises. The wind going through two cherry trees would make as much if not more noise and the turbine I hope to install is a mere 2.5 – its very small, said Paul.Pauls home at the Ladys Drove T-junction in Barroway Drove is open this weekend and hes always happy to give free advice to anyone interested in taking energy-saving measure in their own homes.There are a lot of pressure sales out there and a lot of pitfalls. People need to be aware of whats out there, said Paul who was recently praised by Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud at a recent exhibition in London.I had a chat with him and told him what I was doing and he said Keep up the good work because we need people like you, which was a nice thing to say.This is not something I do for a living, Im a digger driver who is passionate about saving energy and money and Im only too happy to pass on what Ive learned.For further details contact Paul on 07961 314068 or visit his website www.eastangliarenewables.yolasite.comends

The night of the living dead?

Has the night of the living dead descended upon our little Village?

Fortunately not, our annual Trick or Treat village walk is underway as this message is posted.
We have a large group this year as you can see in the photographs in the gallery http://www.barrowaydrove.org/4image/categories.php?cat_id=7

Thank you to all of those households that have agreed for the Children to stop and knock on your door.
This organised event is a much safer way for the Children to celebrate Halloween as a big group but it wouldn’t be possible without the adult supervision and the consent of homeowners.

Happy Halloween!

WE ARE READY FOR THE BIG ONE!
Thats the verdict of Downham Market Town Mayor John Leach.
Last year we started our Water Festival and it was a huge success and I am really pleased to say that we have already far surpassed the interest shown at this stage in 2007
21 teams will be competing in the dragon boat racing competition thats over 200 people!
Said Kerry Heffernan of Downham Market Town Council: Its proving a major planning exercise to ensure that not only our competitors are looked after but also that everybody coming to watch is catered for both in body and soul!
The teams are drawn from local businesses and organisations and include two junior teams from scout troops in Kings Lynn who will compete for the junior trophy kindly donated by Frank Daymond in memory of his son.
There will be lots to see as well as the racing.
The whole of the landside area is covered with stalls and a funfair.
There is also a good choice of food available.
Everybody is welcome to come and join in the fun said Howard Phillips, chair of the Working Party organising the event.
Dont forget both parking and entrance to the Festival are free of charge.
There is also a free shuttle bus running from the town centre to the Festival site.
Lets hope we enjoy the same good weather as last year.
Programmes (50p) are on sale locally at LEWKS and other outlets in Downham Market containing full details of the days fun

Barroway Drove Community Website :: Downham Market Dragon Boat Race – 8th August >>>

Dragon boat racingThis year there will be 28 teams and each race will be competed by four dragon boats.
Kerry Heffernan of Downham Market Town Council said four boats in each race will make for some really exciting racing and will be great to watch.
So the message from the organising working party is Come on.
Get your team entries in quickly we only have a few team spaces left
The Water Festival is an annual event and is free of charge for spectators who will also find lots to entertain them ashore as well as watching the racing.
Nobody goes hungry with a good selection of food outlets doing a roaring trade.
Lots of stalls, a roundabout, trampoline bouncing and funfair complete the line up.
A complete fun day for all the family and entry is free!
Programmes are available in mid July from LEWKS in Wales Court, Downham Market.
Howard Phillips, Chairman of the Working Party, said we are all volunteers and thoroughly enjoy organising this special day every year.
I should like to thank Downham Market Town Council for their backing without which we could not hold the event.
And special thanks too to Archant for their generous sponsorship, and the Borough of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk too.
