Parish Clerk’s Report
The Tidy Up Team is continuing to improve Riverside Gardens and new gardens have been planted around the Welcome to Clapham signs. The new lamp columns in the High Street have also been installed and connected As part of the County Waste Management Strategy, we were invited to comment on the proposed wood and waste food recycling sites at the Biogen plant. The new plant would process 15,000 tonnes each of wood waste and green waste per annum and the Council has objected to the waste food site on the grounds that the smell would be a significant problem for local residents. Any changes to bus route 51 have now been delayed until February half-term. Parish, Borough and County councillors have been pressing Stagecoach for the service to be maintained and the County Council is undertaking a thorough review of routes and timetables before any decisions are made. The Council has been investigating the possibility of providing more parking spaces at the Shopping Parade through echelon parking. However, as there is only room for seven more parking spaces and trees would have to be removed it was decided that the cost would outweigh the gain. It has been decided to spend the prize money from the Bedfordshire round of the Village of the Year Competition on creating an artist drawn village map showing footpaths, significant buildings, places of interest etc. The map will be displayed on notice boards, in the Village and Methodist Halls and at Riverside Gardens and the Millennium Park. Copies will also be available for residents to buy. Our application for the East Region round of the Competition has been forwarded to the sponsors Calor and we look forward to the judges‟ visit in April. Finally we would like to thank Mr. Eddy Pearson who has retired from the Parish Council for his efforts on behalf of the village and welcome his successor, Mr. Charlie Tomkins, a local farmer. Ann Paice – Parish Clerk

County Council News
Waste Options In a similar manner to the recent quarrying proposals, the County Council has now asked land owners to put forward possible sites for waste treatment of various types. These sites have now been published and there are three which are close enough to affect Clapham. The first two are composting and wood recycling similar to the existing site at Ravensden and they are being proposed for a site on Twinwoods airfield, Clapham and Thurleigh Road, Milton Ernest. The third site is where Anglian water has been working in the field between Oakley and Bromham and the site would be visible from Clapham. This site is proposed for inert landfill which comprises bricks and gravel type material. I have been assured that as this site was turned down for mineral extraction, there will be no hole there to fill so is extremely unlikely to proceed to the next stage. If you would like to see the full consultation document it can be found on the County Council web-site. Although the consultation closed on 30th November, all comments received up to the time of the publication of the selected sites, will be taken into consideration. Please visit the site and make your comments. Jane Walker – County Councillor

Tidy-up Team
During November, the Tidy-Up Team worked very hard laying bark in the Riverside Gardens, as well as trimming trees, weeding and setting bulbs for next year. The team meets for a couple of hours on the last Saturday of each month. Anyone willing to give a hand please contact John Keech on 07761 098918

Police Report
REMINDERS Within the local area there has been a recent spate of car crime, please be vigilant in removing all valuable items from your car when you leave, including any satellite navigation equipment that you may be tempted to leave in the glove compartment!! There was recently an attempted distraction burglary within the village and as a result I would like to take this opportunity to remind EVERYONE to check the identity of people that are coming to your homes. If they are genuinely from an organization such as the police, water, electric or gas boards they will happily give you their identity and WAIT OUTSIDE while you seek confirmation, using a number from a phone book or source other than the person at the door. Please also remember to use door chains where available and if you are unsure do not let the person in your home. If anyone would like further information on distraction burglaries or other general crime prevention advice please do not hesitate to contact me. COMMUNITY DAY Myself and PCSO Ian Mott (Oakley) are hoping to run a community day on Saturday 26th January for the villages of Oakley and Clapham. There will be information on crime prevention, safety, homewatch and hopefully much more. Please keep watch for more information in the near future! HMP WELLINGBOROUGH On 26th November 2007 myself, PC Willis-Jones and Zeeshan Khan (Area Youth Worker) took 7 young people from the north rural area to the Youth Community Project run by HMP Wellingborough. This involved a tour of one wing of the working prison, a presentation on prison life and a question and answer session with a range of the current inmates. The young people who attended gave very positive feedback regarding this project and it is hoped further similar projects can be run in the future.

Youth Centre for Young People of North Bedfordshire
Over the last 6 months a small team of individuals has been working to acquire a building suitable for a youth centre, given the lack of facilities for young people in rural North Bedfordshire. The centre will be open to 14 to 19 year olds in the Sharnbrook Catchment Area and will be supervised by County Youth Workers and PCSOs. We are currently in the process of agreeing a lease on the old ‘Miller’ building on the Twinwoods Business Park and hope that young people from the area will help to renovate the building in the style they choose. This building was chosen as it is accessible but away from residential areas. It is intended to set up a management trust, registered as a charity, to run the building. In addition we are working with the Skelton Group which owns the Business Park, to provide transport home from the site in the future. The questionnaire on page 11 gives young people the opportunity to tell us what they would like to gain from this project. If anyone would like to be involved, either with the renovation, as a trustee, or as a volunteer please contact me.

The Royal British Legion
Congratulations to our Branch Standard Bearer, Mr Robert Burnage, who became County Standard Bearer following the competition held at Houghton Conquest in October. Robert paraded our Standard on 4th November at the memorial for the Scottish soldiers who died whilst living in Bedford during the First World War. He was again on parade at the Royal Albert Hall Festival on 10th November and at our village Remembrance Sunday parade the next day. Following the Poppy Appeal, we are once again hoping to set a new record collection of money raised. The four-day collection at Sainsbury‟s store amounted to over £4,400.00. The festival of Remembrance evening held at the Addison Centre, Kempston, raised a further £639.00 and other collections and donations amount to almost £3,00.00. Thank you to everyone for your generosity. The Branch meets on the second Monday of each month at the Clapham Club at 7.30pm. After the Branch business has been concluded we have a very good guest speaker present. If you would like to become a member or would like to know more about the Legion please give our Secretary a call on Bedford 363097. Membership is open to everyone that supports the aim of the Legion. Ro Haggerwood – Chairman Clapham Branch

Millennium Park

A possible plan is set out below. If anyone has any further suggestions or comments, please contact Ann Paice on 01234 346366 or at claphampc@btinternet.com

Six Steps to Worry-free Dog-walking Follow the Countryside Code
By law, you must control your dog so that it does not scare or disturb farm animals or wildlife. On most areas of open country and common land, known as “access land,” you must keep your dog on a short lead between 1 March and 31 July – and all year round near farm animals. You don‟t have to put your dog on a lead on public paths, as long as it is under control but as a general rule, keep your dog on a lead if you cannot rely on its obedience. By law, farmers are entitled to destroy a dog that injures or worries their animals. If a farm animal chases you and your dog, it is safer to let your dog off the lead – don‟t risk getting hurt by trying to protect it. Take particular care that your dog doesn‟t scare sheep and lambs, or wander where it might disturb birds that nest on the ground and other wildlife - eggs and young will soon die without protection from their parents. Everyone knows how unpleasant dog mess is and it can cause infections, so always clean up after your dog and get rid of the mess responsibly. Also, make sure your dog is wormed regularly to protect it, other animals and people. At certain times, dogs may not be allowed on some areas of access land or may need to be kept on a lead. Please follow official signs. Wherever you go, following these steps will help keep your pet safe, protect the environment, and show you are a responsible dog owner.

Let There Be Light
It is hard to imagine that up until the 1900s, Clapham High Street was just a gravel road, as were the footpaths – such as they were - for there were no kerbs to guide you, especially in the dark. The road was often a dust bowl in summer and like a ploughed field in winter, being churned up by the horse and carts going up and down. There were no street lamps at that time. During the December 1902 meeting of the Clapham Parish Council it was decided to borrow some money so they could erect twelve street lights around the village. Having gained approval from the Rural District Council, £30 was borrowed from the bank. The lamps were lit by oil, holding two and a half pints each and giving a fifty candle light power. The work was carried out in the July of 1903. The Parish Council had procured a ladder for a Mr Flavell who had put in the lowest tender of £11.15s per annum, for putting the lights on and off. The lamps would be lit at dusk and extinguished at 10.15pm each night, except on Saturdays, when they would be put out at 10.30pm. (I suppose this was to allow customers from the Public Houses to get home safely). So Clapham now had street lights. It was the foresight of the Parish Council of that time to decide that Clapham should have street lights in the early part of the twentieth century. Not many, if any, villages around Bedfordshire had street lights at that time. Even today, not all villages have them. The oil lamps lasted up till 1934, although in 1925 the Bedford Borough Electricity Board had approached the Parish Council about electric street lighting in Clapham, as they were laying an electric cable at that time. Unfortunately the Council thought the cost was too high, stating that the rates would have to go up, and that they knew the villagers couldn‟t afford them, so the offer was turned down. The population of the village then was 811. On Friday 4th October 1934, there was a village meeting in the Schoolroom, attended by seventy parishioners. It was called by the Parish Council to determine whether or not to have gas lighting in the village. After a long discussion the motion was carried by forty-three votes. The lamps were erected within six weeks by the Bedford Gas Company. After thirty-odd years of oil lamps, the village now had modern gas lamps for lighting the High Street. The local gas man would go around the village at dusk to light them up and then in the early morning to put them out. Clapham had the gas lamps up until 1958 when the present day electric lamps were first used in the village. John F Pickering
