The 3rd Annual Flood Party
Thank you to everyone who made the effort to attend the best flood party to date, it
was certainly the busiest. The weather held out, the kids were kept entertained and
families had fun trying their hand at Aunt Sally. We even had a celebrity guest
threatening to take part in the family Aunt Sally competition.
In the evening it was then left to those adults who still had enough energy to dance
the evening away courtesy of resident DJ Nick Here are a few numbers for you:
         Over 150 people attended throughout the day
         459 ½ pints of real ale were served
         124 hog roast baps consumed
         20 homemade beef and lamb burgers consumed
         25 desserts consumed
Thanks to all your generosity we have managed to raise £1,100 for a worthy cause in
the village. From talking to a few or our regulars in the pub we have decided to donate
the entire amount to the Clanfield Pre-School.
Jane at the school was obviously delighted especially as they are moving premises at
the end of the year. It has been decided that the money will be used towards a
specific part of a new outdoor play area for the school; more details will follow when
the decision has been made as to what exactly it will be used for.
It will also be recognised in some shape or form at the school that the items were
purchased with the help of the hugely generous villagers who attended the flood party
in 2010.
Thank you again,
                                                                   Tom @ The Tavern

Say NO to quarries in our village
Before I begin my summary update for you, there is something of great importance
that must be said to those of you who are giving your time, your energy, your talents
and your money to AGGROW – our campaign to fight sand and gravel excavation
proposals in and around Clanfield.
    To those whose generosity is enabling this campaign to move forward
    To those who collate and put in the leg work to deliver flyers
    To those who bring ideas and give of their talents to our cause
    To those who seek funding and donations
    To those displaying posters and collecting boxes for us
    To those who are sponsoring our publicity and seeking media opportunities
    To those helping with organisation and administration ……..and,
    to the young people of our village …….
    to those who are busy organising a fundraising car wash
 to the three under 7s who helped me to unload all those boxes of flyers, envelopes
etc from my car….. and
 to the little chap who went to the trouble of seeking me out to deliver a donation…..a
very special thank you.
            Without you, there would be nothing to say in this article!
Since my last update, things have moved on apace and AGGROW now has its own
web site that you can access to keep yourselves abreast of developments., or follow us on Face Book.
The steering group is working tirelessly on your behalf and is well on the way to
formulating a strong case. We hope that this will persuade Oxfordshire County
Council that the sand and gravel that lays beneath Clanfield should be regarded as a
resource of last resort!
We are advised by our consultants that we should focus on the poor road
infrastructure of this village and its surrounds; on its flat landscape and on the
potential implications for flooding. To do this we will need to employ specialist
expertise to undertake in depth surveys of these areas for us
We have engaged our district and county councillors and have an appointment with
our Member of Parliament to discuss our concerns. We have attended focus groups
facilitated by OCC and have pressed our case in the strongest terms, and, currently,
we are very busy presenting to other villages and engaging national and regional

organisations who we hope will add their support to our cause. With your help, we
will continue; without it, we cannot.
Through the generosity of some, we have been able to employ the professional
expertise of Planning Consultants, who have wisely advised that we should make
preparations for a Public Enquiry should Clanfield appear as OCCs preferred option.
Given that our area features in 2 of the 3 OCC options, it would be naive to think that
this is not possible, or even probable.
If we are to become the subject of a Public Enquiry, those of us on the AGGROW
steering group will be no match for contractors’ barristers. To have any chance of
winning, we will need to employ our own barrister. If this is the case, the cost will be
The overriding purpose of our recent leaflet drop was focussed on seeking your
financial help to pay for the specialist expertise we need now, and legal
representation, should we need it in the near future. To this end, leaflets have been
delivered to all houses in all of the 12 villages that make up AGGROW. The money
raised from your donations or pledges will enable us to strengthen our case and, if
necessary, to fight at a Public Enquiry. Without funds, we cannot continue to fight.
Please don’t throw the leaflet away without first thinking what it might mean for
your future here in Clanfield.
Thank you,
                                                                           Lynda Scott

There is another website that will help interested Clanfield
residents keep in touch regarding the proposal for mining sand & gravel from the
designated areas in the Oxfordshire County Council / Hanson plan. Have a look and
see what you think….

Have you visited our new award winning website

Back in March Parish Councils were invited to submit to ORCC (Oxfordshire Rural
Community Council) at least one feature of their community, which they felt made a
difference to life in their village. ORCC was founded in 1920 and to celebrate their 90th
birthday have produced a book highlighting all the good things that happen in the rural
towns and villages; community shops, village halls, community bus, places to play,
lunch clubs and Drop-ins. Our own Monday Drop-in was submitted and we were
fortunate to be accepted as ‘one for the book’ and invited to attend a 90th Birthday
Party in July where we learned so much more about the ORCC and all the help and
support it gives to rural communities – we had no idea how much until that day! We
met many interesting helpful people, enjoyed a very good buffet lunch followed by
closing talks and the cutting of the Birthday Cake. Four of us went from Clanfield,
Linda Scott our parish councillor and three from the Monday Drop-in organising
Monday Drop-in has closed now but reopens 12.00 noon, 6th September at The
Carter Institute so if you have never been to one of our Soup Lunches please come
along, age is no barrier babies to the over 90’s everyone is very welcome, we are
advertised in the WHAT? and Contact magazine or phone John Greatrex (Clanfield

donations are always acceptable, any money remaining after expenses is used for
supporting charities – local and overseas.

The Clanfield Clean-Up
We wanted to clear the Clanfield Brook/ River on the 4th July but due to the pending
case against the village by the Police the EA (Environmental Agency) would not
agree to us carrying out what after all is the riparian owner responsibility to keep the
water way free and flowing.
In the Pub a new date of the 24th July was agreed for the clear up. After great efforts
by the chairman of the Parish Council the EA finally agreed to meet us on the
Thursday before to tell us what we should and should not do.
A Daryl Buck arranged to meet up with parish councillors Alan Crisp and John
Bowler on Thursday morning. We were introduced to Mr Steve Baker who is an
enforcement officer for the EA. He was present to ensure that neither parties
discussed the February Clear-up as the case is currently with the Crown
Prosecution Service. Mr Baker duly spent the morning with us – is this not insane? -
our taxes being spent when all Government bodies should be trying to save monies!
The position Clanfield find themselves in with the EA is amazing by any standards - I
am sure that Mr and Mrs Vole had no intention of causing us all these problems.
They are on holiday at present and we’re sure they would have had something to
say if they were here.
Now to the 24th July Village Clean-Up – an overwhelmingly fantastic turn out of over
40 people joined in. Seven groups were organised to carry out tasks from clearing
out the Clanfield Brook/River to litter picking. Everyone just got on with the job. To
his credit Daryl Buck turned up to ensure that we were not over enthusiastic and
retained at least 6 to 8 inches of growth when strimming. (Everyone had a good
laugh about that!)
At 11.00am Tom at the Clanfield Tavern had arranged for us all to return to the pub
for bacon sandwiches and coffee. It was very welcome and a big thank you is due
for this generous contribution. Also thanks are due to Roger Prew who supplied the
It was clear that we had made good progress and that the Brook/River would be
cleared by the end of the day. The litter pickers reported that the village was in good
shape - most of the litter coming from passing cars and vans.
By 1.30pm the work was completed and a very smelly but happy group returned to
the pub - this time for ale and good company. We had achieved a great deal in just
one morning.
If the monsoon season had come in early July then the village could have had flood
problems as the Brook/River was badly clogged and in some parts blocked with
weeds and reeds. This is exactly what happened in July 2007 when the flood plains
to the east of the village were not in use as water was being held up in un-cleared
and un-cared for brooks and rivers.

The village should thank all these magnificent volunteers for a wonderful job. They
certainly deserve it.
We are told that the EA will clear out in the autumn which is encouraging news.

Clanfield Produce Show 2010
Saturday 4th September
This year we have challenged the Under 12’s to make a refrigerator cake. By this we
mean one of those broken biscuit and chocolate yummy things that are a bit like
flapjack rather than a cake. We do hope parents will encourage their kids to ‘have a
go’. There’s no cooking involved – just melting. There are many versions and some of
you will have a favourite we’re sure, but here is a BBC recipe by way of an example:-
         225g/8oz digestive or ginger nut biscuits, broken into small pieces
         25g/1oz dried cherries
         25g/1oz glace cherries, chopped
         25g/1oz dried apricots, chopped
         25g/1oz dried blueberries
         25g/1oz sultanas
         25g/1oz mixed peel
         25g/1oz flaked almonds
         175g/6oz dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) broken into small pieces
         140g/5oz unsalted butter
         3 tbsp double cream
     Mix together in a bowl all the ingredients except the chocolate, butter and cream.
     Place the chocolate, butter and cream into a saucepan over a low heat and allow
     the chocolate to melt, stirring to combine.
     Pour the chocolate over the biscuit mix and stir everything well until combined.
     Meanwhile line a 20cm/8in cake tin with a large sheet of foil pressing it carefully
     into the tin. Brush the foil with a scant coating of vegetable oil.
     Spoon the chocolate mix into the foil lined cake tin and push down well. Cover
     the cake with more foil and place in the refrigerator. Chill for about two hours.
     Remove from the tin and lift off the foil. Cut into wedges.
Our judge looks forward to tasting the results.

Clanfield W.I.
The July meeting was a river trip down the Thames from Lechlade to just above
Buscot Lock and back. Well, we were meant to get back, but I am jumping ahead of
myself. We set off just after 7pm (sorry everyone for being late!) and it was a lovely
evening. The weather was dry and not too windy. We enjoyed a delicious
ploughman’s supper, served by attentive staff, and saw lots of wildlife (when we
stopped talking long enough to look out of the windows). However, just after passing
through St. John’s Lock, we pulled over to the side and waited and waited and waited.
Then came the announcement: we had broken down – something wrapped round the
propeller. Fortunately, the boat crew and lock-keeper were able to pull us back into
the lock. The lock-keeper’s wife taxied some of us back to fetch our cars and very
soon we were all able to get off the boat and back into the cars to go home. So a very
unexpected end to the evening with no harm done – if we had broken down anywhere
else we would have been unable to get off the boat onto the bank and so could have
been stuck for hours!
August sees a first for Clanfield WI – in lieu of our January meeting which was
cancelled due to snow, we are meeting in August for what promises to be a fun (and
land-bound) evening with (so I have been told) Pimms! Come and join us! For more
details, contact our president: Heather Clarke - 01367 810655.

St. Stephen’s Church
The last weekend of the Midsummer Celebrations saw the
beautiful Flower Festival. The festival theme this year was
Children’s Stories and so we had Sleeping Beauty, Hansel
and Gretel, Rumpelstiltkin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears to
name but a few. Each and every one was very ingenious in
their use of flowers and props to illustrate the stories and
many people thoroughly enjoyed visiting the church and
looking at all the creations. Thank you very much to all the
ladies who spent so much time and effort in making the
displays for us to enjoy.
July has also been a busy time in St Stephen’s: Ehryn Count was baptised on 4th July
by her grandfather who is vicar at the Anglican Church in Barcelona – a very special
service for all the family and congregation.
Monday 5th July saw the burial and memorial service of Neil McCormick, son-in-law of
Brian and Vivienne Wallis. Our little church was packed to the rafters with 195
mourners. Several friends and Neil’s sister, Julia Boyle, gave very moving eulogies.
Many of Neil’s friends from the banking community attended, some flying in from
Hong Kong to attend. The collection of £2,108.84 is to be split between St. Stephen’s
and ‘Help for Heroes’. Our prayers and sympathy go to all the family.
Sunday 18th July saw an unusual and enjoyable service in St. Stephen’s: owing to a
double-booking, there was no minister available to lead worship and so we had a
‘Songs of Praise’ service, ably planned by Nancie and well-led by John Greatrex.
Thank you both for organising this and thanks to everyone who suggested hymns. It
was lovely that so many were able to bravely explain why their chosen hymn meant
so much to them and we all enjoyed singing them!

 Throughout July why not treat your hands and feet to the best Manicure and Pedicure
   Treatment available. Using our fabulous OPI products, your hands and feet are
guaranteed to be left feeling blissfully soft, hydrated and relaxed. Available at 20% off!

Clanfield Baby and Toddler Group
Our ‘Big Toddle’, a sponsored walk on 23rd June raised about £400 for Barnardos and
Toddler Group. From this, we have made a £80 donation to AGGROW – the anti-
gravel pit campaign. We also ran a stall at the Clanfield fete on 27th June. In July, we
continued with our crafts and also playing outside when possible between the
showers of rain. Our last session was Wednesday 21st July and we recommence on
Wednesday 8th September.
This summer we are saying goodbye to our current committee who have been
organising Toddlers for the last 2 years: as a group we are very grateful for all the
creativity and hard work that they have put in – so much of it behind the scenes.
Fortunately, a new committee has been formed of willing and talented volunteers, so
the group will continue to meet and to thrive.
We meet every Wednesday morning (during term-time) from 9.30am to 11.30am at
the Carter Institute, Clanfield for games, crafts, singing, snacks for the children, and
lots of tea, coffee and friendly faces for the grown-ups. If you and your kid(s) are free
on Wednesdays mornings, please come and join us from 9.30am – 11.30am.
