He moved from ASDA to lead the Bank in 1999, and in 2008 aged 42, resigned on a salary with bonuses of £1.93 million. He, along with many other senior bankers across the world, has been cast in the role of penitent: sinners called to repentance for causing all our financial woes, for being greedy and profligate with our money. It is like an extended Lenten exercise of examination. The spectacle of politicians, clerics and journalists falling over themselves to point the finger of blame at the bankers is not all together edifying. The bankers may be at the top of the pile, but no- one was complaining when shares were high, assets increasing in value, credit flowing, and prosperity increasing. We have to question how sincere is the penitence or the moral indignation, when we would perhaps all do the same again, given the chance. Saying sorry is only useful when we do something to make amends, or change future conduct; otherwise it is hypocrisy and whitewash. This all makes the 2009 season of Lent, beginning on February 25 th and ending with Holy Week on the 5th of April, more relevant perhaps than in recent years. A time to re-examine moral priorities, to take stock, to put the brake on consumption, to simplify one‟s life, and of course to seek spiritual experience, has always been advocated by the Church. It is a good exercise, even for those who have no faith in God at all. In the Churches we give opportunity for Christians to increase giving to charity, study and discuss fundamental issues, and examine their consciences. Very often the consequence of this time of self examination is not to make huge changes in our lives; but to realise that a few small steps and simple adjustments to the way we manage our time, attitudes or habits, can make a big difference. This may also be true of society at large; and if all this penitence has some effect, then maybe it will be worthwhile. If however we only blame the bankers, nothing will really change. Chris Boulton Funeral of Ted Harvey on Wednesday 18th February at St Andrews Much Hadham Ted Harvey of Upwick hall sadly died on February 4th having been diagnosed with cancer in late 2008. He was a long term resident of Albury and was a regular supporter of the church with his wife Marigold. He was a regular reader in the services and always read from his family bible which had been passed down through the generations. Over the years he carried out many civic duties being a magistrate for almost 30 years and in 1992 was made High Sheriff of Hertfordshire – the Queens judicial representative in the county. He also chaired the local Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Riding for the disabled and the Country Landowners Association. His proudest moment however was when his horse, Little Polveir, won the Grand National in 1989 for which he was presented a bronze statue Ted was born into a Cradle End near Little Hadham Ted married Marigold Sporborg in 1962 and they have 3 sons and 6 grandchildren. 4 Children’s Quiz SUDOKU Fill in all the squares so that Every row, column and all nine 3x3 squares contain all the digits from 1 to 9 Answers on page 10 1.

We are very proud of the six hardy souls who turned out on a day that saw sub zero temperatures, to take on 200 of Hertfordshire’s best young runners. In a very competitive and fast girls race Kitty Ewin finished highest of the Albury team in a very solid 60th position. Rebecca Cole was next home, only 1 min behind, and she was followed by her sister Alice and Imogen Halliday. We would like to express a big special thank you to Imogen who stepped in to fill the breach at the last minute, after Sofi Jayne was unavoidably detained by a very important exam. In the boys race Joseph Callaghan proudly defended Albury School’s honour. In a race of over 200 students Joseph recovered well after falling in the starting mêlée. Through the race he fought hard to make up places and was constantly passing people eventually finishing in the first half of the field. (At this time Joseph’s position is unavailable).Very well done to the whole team who did the school, village and themselves proud! Speed Stacking Event at Birchwood On 20th January Albury Primary yr 3/4 Speed Stacking team turned out at the District Primary Schools’ Speed Stacking Tournament. The team had trained hard on a daily basis and was full of confidence, in particular Jack Hancox, Elanore Ewin and Issy Wright did well to overcome their pre tournament nerves and put in a sterling performance at their first competitive event. The team’s training turned out to be very worthwhile as fast times were chalked up by Jordan Badman and Mia Welsh. However, it was Lewis Trow who stood out collecting medals in no less than two events. Overall the team did exceptionally well and is excitedly awaiting the announcement of the County team, where Albury can expect to be represented by some of these talented youngsters! Yellow Pages Competition Albury School has decided to enter the Yellow Pages Competition again this year. We have to collect as many Yellow Pages as possible in order to win. If anyone has any old Yellow Pages they would like to be recycled then please either drop them into the school or call the secretary and we will endeavour to arrange for someone to collect them from you. (Perhaps while you are at the school you might like to have a look at our new hall!) Street Dance Class Mornings Commencing on Friday 6th March the school will be hosting a Street Dance Class for all those who wish to get fit for the summer. The event will be held every Friday between 9.15 am and 10.15 am in the school hall at a cost £4.50 per session. Alex, who will be taking the class, has run a Salsa Night for the school and was asked back by popular demand. Friends of Albury School The Friends of Albury Primary School are looking for somebody to take over as Treasurer from 1st November 2009, for a year, on a voluntary basis. If you enjoy working with Excel spreadsheets, are happy to work with figures and are looking for something as a part time interest, we would be pleased to hear from you. The Friends of Albury Primary School raise money to buy much needed equipment and other items for our village school. If you would like to help please contact our school secretary Rachel Waight on 01279 771253 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just one last thing! Everyone at Albury School would like to wish all the year six students in the village good luck with their secondary school applications and hope that they get their first choice. Upcoming events 6th March Street Dance Classes begin 20 March Children’s School Disco Come along to the school disco in our own school hall. We will serve tea for the children and there will be a tuck shop for those children who would like to buy some homemade cakes, cookies, crisps etc. – Lee Ewin 6 Driving licence photocard This was bought to my attention – I thought I would share it with you. – Joan Crow "Unwitting motorists face £1,000 fines as thousands of photocard driving licences expire. Thousands of motorists are at risk of being fined up to £1,000 because they are unwittingly driving without a valid licence. They risk prosecution after failing to spot the extremely small print on their photocard licence which says it automatically expires after 10 years and has to be renewed - even though drivers are licensed to drive until the age of 70. The fiasco has come to light a decade after the first batch of photo licences was issued in July 1998, just as the they start to expire. Motoring organisations blamed the Government for the fiasco and said 'most' drivers believed their licences were for life. A mock-up driving licence from 1998 when the photocards were launched shows the imminent expiry date as item '4b' They said officials had failed to publicise sufficiently the fact that new-style licences - unlike the old paper ones - expire after a set period and have to be renewed. To rub salt into wounds, drivers will have to a pay £17.50 to renew their card - a charge which critics have condemned as a 'stealth tax' and which will earn the Treasury an estimated £437million over 25 years. Official DVLA figures reveal that while 16,136 expired this summer, so far only 11,566 drivers have renewed, leaving 4,570 outstanding. With another 300,000 photocard licences due to expire over the coming year, experts fear the number of invalid licences will soar, putting thousands more drivers in breach of the law and at risk of a fine. At the heart of the confusion is the small print on the tiny credit-card-size photo licence, which is used in conjunction with the paper version. Just below the driver name o n the front of the photocard licence is a series of dates and details - each one numbered. Number 4b features a date in tiny writing, but no explicit explanation as to what it means. The date's significance is only explained if the driver turns over the card and reads the key on the back which states that '4b' means 'licence valid to'. Even more confusingly, an adjacent table on the rear of the card sets out how long the driver is registered to hold a licence - that is until his or her 70th birthday. A total of 25million new-style licences have been issued but - motoring experts say - drivers were never sufficiently warned they would expire after 10 years. Motorists who fail to renew their licences in time are allowed to continue driving. But the DVLA says they could be charged with 'failing to surrender their licence', an offence carrying a £1,000 fine. AA president, Edmund King said: 'It is not generally known that photocard licences expire: there appears to be a lack of information that people will have to renew these licences. People think they have already paid them for once over and that is it. It will come as a surprise to motorists and a shock that they have to pay an extra £17.50.' The AA called on the Government to use the annual £450million from traffic enforcement fines to offset the renewal charge. Before photocard licences were introduced, old-style paper licences were valid until the age of 70. Many motorists still believe this to be the case with the new ones". 7 Results of Parish Council survey 2008/09 In December 2008 the Parish Council was approached by a group of Albury residents and asked to officially contest the proposed development at High Hall. In delicate matters such as this we are keen to represent all the village and therefore felt that we had to ask the people of Albury whether they wanted us to stand against or for this Affordable Housing development at High Hall. In early January every household received a prepaid card with a clear YES, NO or NO OPINION option to tick. With the card was a short letter to explain that the PC would not act on behalf of the Stop Albury From Expansion group WITHOUT the parishioner‟s approval. On the card people were also given the opportunity to leave their name and address (optional) as well as space to comment with a deadline of January 31st. By February 2nd at our first Parish Council meeting this year we had received 143 responses (out of 230 ) 68 % voted for YES ( PC to act on behalf of the Stop Albury From Expansion and AGAINST the development at HIGH HALL ) 29% voted for NO ( PC not to stand against proposed development at High Hall ) 3% had ticked the box of NO OPINION I took the time and analysed the information we have received from those cards as follows: AGAINST THE DEVELOPMENT comments made : Clearly the majority of people in Albury ARE NOT HAPPY with the proposed site at High Hall and felt that the Parish Council must act on their behalf. 40 of those who voted against the project DO NOT LIVE in or around the area of High Hall and therefore would not be affected by such a new development themselves. 9 felt that it was the site at High Hall that was the problem 4 do not want to see any new developments within the green belt area 6 feel that a lack of infrastructure in Albury would not benefit Affordable Housing schemes 8 feared that such a development would increase the burden of traffic problems even further 1 was very concerned about the spoilt views and appearance of the village 1 was alarmed that one such development would sent a precedence for even more schemes 5 wanted to save Albury‟s real village character 1 is worried that the development would decrease Albury‟s popularity 2 were extremely alert to the fact that this development is likely to attract people who have absolute no connections with Albury and outsiders who have no interest in enriching village life. 6 were not at all convinced that a need for such a development has been established 1 feels so strongly about it that they feel no other way but sadly having to leave Albury if this project was allowed to go ahead 1 suggests that we should better concentrate on improving our infrastructure such as bringing back the long gone post office 1 had concerns with environmental issues for newly build housing 1 said that the village school is full to capacity and could not take in any more children 8 For THE DEVELOPMENT comments made : Only 13 voting for the development were happy to give their name or address Not a single one of those lives in or close to the proposed site, with 3 at Patmore Heath at the closest. 15 felt very strongly that ANY Affordable Housing must be given to people with a proven link or connection to Albury ONLY 1 demands that the Parish Council must have nomination rights 2 feel that a small Affordable Housing Scheme would be welcome but it must NOT set any precedent for further development 1 felt that one pressure group protesting against the development is enough 1 felt that the problem started when Council Houses were sold off 1 is convinced that we cannot escape expansion 1 rather goes along with Affordable Housing than a government compulsory purchase for a traveller‟s site 2 think that Affordable Housing is necessary for the future of the school in expensive villages 1 welcomes the range of different houses a project like this might offer 1 is of the opinion that too many PC members might have a personal interest in this ( The Affordable Housing issue is being dealt with by the 3 members who DO NOT live in the area concerned and would not be affected by the development , the remaining 2 have no input in any discussions or decisions ) We hope that the collected information will be shown the consideration it deserves as we all act in the best interest for our village community. We understand Aldwyck‟s desire to build a new development and as an alternative to Albury village itself would like to draw your attention to an Albury resident who has approached the PC with the willingness to sell prime development land within the area of Albury/ Little Hadham. We have passed on the potential vendor‟s details to Aldwyck Affordable Housing for further investigation. I would like to thank everybody who has taken the time to return the card as it clearly has helped our decision making process. Your opinion and comments matter to us! Brigitte Webster Albury Parish Council Little Hadham and Albury Social Club February is when we discuss if everyone is happy with the club, outings, speakers etc., view details of finances and do so over a glass of wine.

England A Seat on the Heath How disappointed we were to find the seat in memory of Frank Hutchin, a member of this parish, who lived and worked all his life upon the heath, completely smashed and the name plate gone. It was slightly damaged a few weeks ago, the centre strut being broken but sometime after 4 o‟clock on Saturday evening of the 31st January, the back was completely wrecked. The police are aware of the vandalism, and are making a point of checking the area more often. Such a shame that vandalism has crept in to our quiet village. – Several residents of the Heath & Albury Update: Many thanks to Reg Crafter for all his hard work in repairing the ‘Seat on the Heath’. Further update: 17th February, Unfortunately, 2 lads have decided to damage the seat again, shame on you! As you can see Lewis, Jack, Ruby, Dan, Callum, Ellie and Euan are having lots of fun being kept home from school because of the snow. - Tracy Saggers 10 Little Hadham and Albury Garden Club The talk by Robin Carsberg at our January meeting gave us a whistle stop tour round the Great and Small gardens of Wessex was very interesting and brought back memories for many members and also inspired others to visit the region. Our March meeting on the 19th is the A.G.M. and our Chairman gives a short appreciation of the previous year‟s events and we launch our 2009/2010 list of events and outings along with the new Autumn show schedule, so come along and join the club meet other gardeners and would be gardeners, have a nibble and drink.

Patmore Heath Work Party Dates Work Parties are held on Patmore Heath on the last Sunday of the month from 10.00 -12.00 September to April. The work parties are a great way to keep fit and get outdoors in to the countryside and fresh air. They also help protect the rare wildlife that is found at Patmore Heath. Everyone welcome – the next dates are; 29th March Patmore Wildlife Roughly, fifty different types of fern occur in Britain and at least three of these; narrow buckler fern, broad buckler fern and male fern can be found on Patmore Heath. The two buckler ferns also form a hybrid. The most interesting one is the narrow buckler-fern. This is a heathland or wood pasture speciality, and the colony around the marshy area on Patmore Heath is one of the best of its kind in the County. Ferns are some of the oldest and most primitive plants found alive today. Dating back to before the dinosaurs, they are non-flowering and reproduce by means of spores usually produced on the underside of their fronds or leaves. – Gavin Vicary 11 Gardening tips from the Heath – Pat Dyson March Checklist The Mixed Case Wine Merchants 1) Plant early potatoes. are holding a Wine Tasting Evening 2) Keep some garden fleece handy in case of on behalf of the Little Hadham & Albury severe frost.
