Clanfield Primary School
Have you ever wondered what life is like in a Primary School? Would you like to
experience Term 4 at Clanfield CE Primary School in just 52 seconds? Throughout
the whole of last term I captured various aspects of our school life, for just one second
each day. Using all the clips I created a short film using an app for the ipad, called
‘Life in seconds.’ You can take a peek into the lives of the children at Clanfield CE
Primary by typing this link into your web browser bit.ly/13k2ayw or by follow the link
on our school blog.
After the disappointment of having to cancel our Duck Day and Fun Run in March, we
held an afternoon of duck related activities on the final day of term, culminating in
some very exciting and closely fought raft racing, along a stretch of the brook. An
eventful afternoon saw Mrs Foster and the PTA raise £268.50 towards our new
playground equipment. Thank you to all members of our PTA who gave up their time
to manage stalls and to everyone who attended. Our total fundraising stands at just
over £3000 so far and has been bolstered by matched funding from Barclays, with
thanks to Mrs Bartlett. Our current total is proudly displayed on our brand new
totalizer, designed and built by Mr Krzywiec and painted by Mrs Sunderland and can
be seen just inside the school entrance hall. Our Fun Run will now be held on
Sunday 28 April from 11am, where entrants are encouraged to dress as a duck, in
yellow or carry a rubber duck during the run!
Each month every Waitrose donates £1,000 between three local good causes that are
nominated by its community. At the checkout, customers receive a token, to be placed
in a box of the good cause they would most like to support. The more tokens a cause
gets, the bigger the donation they receive. The Multi-Marathon run that Mr Wightman
and I embark on, starting 1 May, is one of those good causes throughout April. So if
you shop at Waitrose please drop your token in our box.
As you read this we will have, hopefully, completed our challenge to run to
Woolacombe, leaving crosses designed by the children in many churches on our
journey. We would like to thank Crisp Images, CES Limited, mycalibrations.com,
Tailor – Made top Nosh, Playtime by Fawns, Lansborough Lettings and OGM
precision moulding for their generous support and everyone who has sponsored us
and wished us well on our journey.
The Christian value that will be our focus this term is Trust. Together we will explore
what ‘Trust’ means both in The Bible and in terms of people’s everyday lives.
We continue to share a wealth of information through our Twitter account:
@head3100 and our school blog: clanfieldprimaryschool.wordpress.com.
Many thanks

The evening of Tuesday 9th April saw a good group of people gathered in the Carter
Institute to listen to Glyn James and Clive Clark give a fascinating and inspirational
account of their house-building expedition in Nepal. This was undertaken through the
Faringdon (and surroundings) Rotary Club, who do a great deal of charity work every
year, including our annual visit of Father Christmas on Thomas the tank engine, and
the Christmas tree collection in early January. This time, the Rotary Club had decided
to     support       an   international     c h a r i t y, Habitat    for   Humanity
(www.habitatforhumanity.org.uk) who works with communities around the world to
build homes for families who have no house or nothing more than a shed with a dirt
floor. Glyn and Clive showed us photos of the walls they had built, telling us tales of
making mud mortar and plaster, and the difference it had made to the hard-working
family, who had saved money to buy the materials which the volunteers used to build
the house.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 14th May, 7.30pm at the Carter Institute, Clanfield,
where we will be discussing the National WI Resolution on the need to keep our high
streets alive and to support small and local businesses. This will be followed by a
beetle drive. For more information, contact Raena Farley on 01367 810604 or go to

St. Stephen’s Church
Finally spring has arrived! The churchyard plants and trees
are beginning to come to life, and we are hoping that our
swallows will return to our porch where they have
successfully reared a brood for the last few summers. The
rolling round of the seasons, like the sticks in a Christingle,
is a constant reminder of God’s faithful provision for us.
Our bell ringers have been making good progress with raising funds for the work
needed to keep our bells ringing for the next few decades, but there is still a long way
to go. The next fundraising event is an Open Day at JBS Nurseries in Bampton on
Sunday 12th May, 10am – 5pm: a unique opportunity to buy plants direct form one of
the UK's leading growers and wholesalers. This family-run horticultural business
produces 330,000 plants including 40,000 lavenders, and is not normally open to the
general public.
Herbaceous, lavenders and hedging plants available for sale in aid of the St.
Stephen's Church, Clanfield Bell Restoration Appeal.
JBS Nurseries, Buckland Road, Bampton, OX18 2AA. For more information call

Just a reminder that this year’s Flower Festival will be held on Saturday 24th and
Sunday 25th June, with the theme being “Let’s face the music and dance!”. Our
talented flower arrangers are already busy planning the stunning visual displays with
which to wow us this year and it promises to be most interesting. As usual, our Gift
Day will be on the Sunday (25th June), where we ask the village to make any
contributions they can to support the upkeep and maintenance of their parish church
– look out for the leaflets and envelopes!

Clanfield and Bampton Historical Society
In Victorian times the Common Lodging Houses which proliferated around the
country, in almost every city and market town, were regarded, at least by those middle
class people who had no need for them, as degrading and evil, but that was not the
whole story, as Liz Woolley told the society in a talk vivid with imagery and fascinating
detail.
The overcrowding – in one instance a room 12ft by 10ft contained six beds and 32
occupants – and the lack of sanitary arrangements – in Banbury one privy was shared
by 10 houses - and often no water at all, led to disease, while delinquency was rife.
Often the keepers of the houses were fences who encouraged the occupants to steal
and bring back their swag, and alcohol and gambling were the main sources of
‘relaxation’.
But the Common Lodging Houses filled a need, for itinerant workers, many of them
skilled, who travelled the country in search of employment, and also provided a base
for foreigners, with a mass influx of Irish after the potato famine, but also from further
afield. In Oxford there were 20 just in St Thomas’s High Street – the area around the
present-day ice rink - in houses rented from Christ Church College. Perhaps the most
famous of the Oxford keepers was Annie Farina, who died in 1941, who with her
husband Ferdinando walked to Oxford from southern Italy, and set up a Common
Lodging House in the Plasterer’s Arms; eventually her family ended up owning 10
Common Lodging Houses.
                                            Despite the widespread condemnation of
                                            the houses on moral and health grounds,
                   Simms Property           in the end it was mainly for economic
                                            reasons that they disappeared, when
                     Maintenance            regulation, and the costs involved, made
                  Experienced and Fully     running them unviable.

                     City and Guilds        talks will end on Wednesday, May 22nd, in

March Rainfall in Clanfield
According to news reports last March was one of the wettest on records and there is
no denying that most people were getting more than a bit fed up of the dull, grey, (and
cold) days. Winter certainly seemed to be lingering on for longer than usual. Going
through our rainfall figures however it would seem as though we have had some
significantly wetter March’s than the one we’ve just experienced.
The chart below shows the rainfall we’ve recorded since 1969 and this year we
recorded 2.65 inches of rain which is nothing when compared to previous years.

                                             that their garden was starting to dry out
                                             and they wouldn't mind a drop or two.

Rotary Club Of Faringdon & District
How often have we experienced that time delay whilst watching a news
broadcast on television, the presenter will ask a question, we all then
just patiently wait for what seems like ages before we get an answer.
Well, writing this month’s report for the Clanfield What, feels a bit like
that. I am unable to report on our Senior Citizens Party held on April 20th, or our
much anticipated Duck Race at Millets Farm held on 28th April, simply because the
deadline for this report is 16th April. No doubt they were all a great success and
things may or may not have happened that would have made good reading.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the gift of prophesy! My late Father in Law would often
declare ‘’Time is a mysterious thing’’, how right he was.
I can however thank Millets Farm for hosting the duck race and for all of you that
purchased a duck or ducks, and enjoyed watching it waddle its way down the river
Ock to victory. I hope you all had a quacking time, and for four lucky winners, a lovely
financial reward. The main beneficiaries were of course The Bucks, Oxford and Berks
Air Ambulance and ROSY, the wonderful local children’s charity providing respite
nursing. Thank you all, and see you again next year.
Looking ahead, we are already planning our Fun Run at Buscot Park gardens on
Sunday 30th June. This is always a real attraction, both for those serious runners
that compete in many 10K races countrywide, for the local keep fit enthusiast who
needs an excuse to lose a few more calories, or those of us that simply want to
compete in a 5K Fun Run. It really is a great day out for the whole family to enjoy the
fabulous formal parkland and woods and breath-taking scenery that surrounds Buscot
Park House. Please make a note in your diaries and plan to join us. The 5K fun run
starts at 10.30am and the 10K race at 11.15am.
For more information about the fun run, please contact Rotarian Ian Lloyd at
ian@propertyandenergy.co.uk or see us on facebook. Our President Peter Walker
will be happy to answer any questions on all Rotary matters, his number is 01367

Clanfield Football Club
On Easter Saturday I went to see Clanfield play at Brinscombe and Thrupp who are
currently top of the Hellenic Division 1 West, but although Clanfield had a good
previous record against them, with two wins and a draw from three games, the
Gloucestershire club emerged 5-0 winners on this occasion and opened the scoring
as early as the first minute. For me personally this alongside the 5-0 defeat at Didcot
in 1979/80 was the heaviest loss I have seen Clanfield incur and ironically I passed
through Didcot's old ground on the way to Brimscombe.
The match coincided with the 40th birthday of current Clanfield manager Peter
Osborne who has been involved with the club all his life, and I am sure he would not
allow the disappointment of the result to get in the way of his birthday celebrations.
It is funny that the majority of my most recent Clanfield games have been against
teams of good pedigree 2009/10 Slimbridge (Division 1 West champions that
season), 2010/11 Trowbridge (the exception), Tytherington Rocks (Hellenic Division 1
West champions the following season), 2011/12 Headington Amateurs (Hellenic
League 1 West champions the following seasson), Highmoor Ibis (Hellenic Division 1
East runners up that season) 2012/13 Maidenhead United Reserves (Still have an
outside chance of promotion to the Premier Division at the time of writing),
Brinscombe and Thrupp (almost certain Division 1 West champions this season).
Despite the result at Brimscombe and Thrupp the team kept battling to the end and it
was nice to see everyone and to wear the top they kindly presented me with at
Maidenhead. The visit also bought back memories of my visits to see Clanfield play in
the Gloucestershire hills during the 1970's and with good vocal support, provision of
food, pre and post match support, a tannoy announcer and a good club spirit the
home team have the set up to be promoted and do well higher up the non-league
pyramid. The attendance for the game was probably greater than the combined
attendance of my three most recent Clanfield matches.
Also as I write this the weather is finally beginning to warm up after one of the coldest
Marches on record.
