RIP Denise Elisabeth Goodwin (known to many as Bett) died on 7
March 2017 after a short illness. Bett
was born on 21 January 1930 and is a former Wateringbury School Pupil and
resident having lived in the village since 1976. She set up Nettlestead
and Wateringbury play school in the 1970s and was also a childminder
in the village and she had seen many children grow up into adulthood. She
worked as a cleaner for Kent County Council at what was then West Malling Air
Station from September 1975 and remained cleaning there until September 2016,
26 years past her retirement date. Rostrum
extends condolences to all her family
Tracey Brydon-Brown who is a village brownie pack
leader and an ex paramedic, recently qualified as a first aid instructor. She would be very happy to run awareness courses on basic first aid,
recovery position, cpr etc free of charge for local people at a suitable village
venue for a donation to SADS UK
(sadsuk.org.uk registered charity number 1113681) who donate defibs to local
schools and preschools. Tracey would also be avaliable for more formal courses
in the future but her primary aims are to educate and give confidence to people
in the world of first aid and teaching life skills for the benefit of village
people. If any local groups or small
groups of parents/grandparents are
interested please contact

LONDON MARATHON MAN SEEKS SPONSORS
I moved to the village a few months ago, and
I have been very impressed with, and pleased by, the community spirit of the
village! I walk and run around the area
a lot, and the number of friendly Hello's and chats with folk I'm meeting for
the first time is really humbling. I thought your readers might be
interested to know that I will be running the London Marathon in April, raising funds for the road safety charity
"Brake" and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. My training is going well
(although I am far from athletic, this will be my fourth and final
marathon). Donations from readers would be much appreciated for my charities

A FAMILY AFFAIR ART EXHIBITION
Three artists (Jane Guthrie, Thomas
Best-Shaw, and Lucy Best-Shaw) will be exhibiting their work in West Malling at
Belmont, 104 High Street, West Malling
(next door to The Five Pointed Star). on Saturdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays
(10am – 5pm) between 29th April - 29th May (or by special
arrangement). Jane is mother to Thomas
and Lucy, but paints under her maiden name. Thomas lives in Wateringbury, and
specialises in oil portraits and seascapes. He is always happy to show
his work by private arrangement (tel. 299713, or email: email@example.com),

MARCH PARISH COUNCIL REPORT
opened with the Chairman extending a warm welcome to a new member of the Parish
Council, Keith Fisher, who has lived
in Wateringbury for many years. The
welcome return of David Marks to the
Parish Council was also announced.
congratulated Cllr Chris Talbert on his recent marriage to Janet Hall.
New 40mph advisory signs have been erected approaching the bend of the A26 Tonbridge Road near
to the junction of Pizien Well.
Unfortunately, one sign has already been damaged. Comments from residents would be welcomed as
it is felt that further improvements are needed to encourage motorists to
reduce their travelling speed on this bend.
Crimes reported during
December in the village amounted to eight:
2 violent crimes, 2 anti-social behaviour, 3 criminal damage and 1
Drayhorse Meadow - trees abutting the
building require trimming and this will then allow access for repairs to be
carried out to the roof. The stables
have been cleaned and painted and are in good order. Councillors should be present when the
stables are handed over to the new tenant.
The issue of
Parish Councillors attending planning
consent site meetings was discussed.
Councillors felt that often their knowledge of the local area could be
beneficial on these occasions but the current rules restrict them from offering
their comments. Procedures at the
present time only allow them to report to Parish Council meetings and then
comment on applications. The matter is
to be taken up with T&MBC.
the Speed Watch team made 529
observations of vehicles speeding through the village and this total will have
been added to the Kent Police Community Speed Watch database.

WATERINGBURY EXPLORER SCOUTS
would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everybody who helped with our jumble sale
at the end of February whether they collected jumble, transported it, sorted
it, sold it, displayed posters, made cakes, prepared the hall or counted the
money, it was all very much appreciated. We would also like to say thank
you to everyone who generously donated so much jumble and to those who attended
and bought it, without which we would not have had such a huge success and a
super atmosphere. We are very lucky to live in such a supportive
community. By the way, we raised over £850 towards our Canada expedition
later this year! THANK YOU

NEWS APRIL 1917
April 6: United States declares
war on Germany.
April 9: Allied Artois and
Champagne offensive starts (Battle of Vimy Ridge
). April 16: French Nivelle Offensive starts.
The village had no war deaths in April. The news of the United States entry into the
war on 6th April, following Germany’s adoption of unrestricted
submarine warfare, was received across the nation with relief and, possibly, a
feeling of “about time too”. In
Wateringbury the senior classes of both the boys and girls schools attended a
service at the Church on 20th April. The Boys’ school log says the
service was “to celebrate the entry of America into the war” and the Girls’
school log says “in recognition of America joining the Allies to fight against
With so many men in the armed forces, inflationary
pressures on wages and salaries started and in Wateringbury we see the evidence
of this with the
Parish Clerk applying to the Council for an increase.
The council deferred a
decision but a few months later agreed to pay the Assistant Overseer a “war
bonus” of £10, to be paid in two instalments. The school cleaner, Mrs Weller,
had been given an additional 1s. a week for the duration of the war in the
The Board of Frederick Leney met regularly (in the village) and the
minutes now record more commercial matters than previously. Although profitability is not mentioned, it
is evident that the firm had not suffered financially from the government’s
attack on alcohol (shorter pub hours; weaker beer; higher duty etc.). A series
of substantial (£23,000 by the end of 1917- equivalent to over £1 million
today) investments start in Government War Bonds. Its direct taxes though, for
1916 of £31, seem modest.
Discussions with other brewers had taken place to
ensure that a new beer price to tenants and for retail were adopted. These were
announced on 4th April as 5d. (2 pence) for a pint of mild, and 8d
(3 pence) for a pint of ale or stout.
Starting in May, distribution would be by motor to pubs in the
Sittingbourne and Chatham areas, enabling a man, horse and dray to be dispensed
the country there was great fear of attack on civilians from the air by
Zeppelin or aircraft. In Wateringbury
this is reflected in the church accounts for the year ended 31st
March 1917 which include an insurance premium of over £7 for “aircraft”
insurance, the largest individual premium for that year. Bombing from Zeppelins
had started in 1915; aircraft bombing started in June 1917 when 162 people were
killed in London (including 18 school children at a Poplar primary school).
Leney Board did not get round to discussing the matter of aircraft insurance
until September 1917 when it decided to insure against “air raid” on its pubs
in the Chatham area This is surprising given that the related Leney company in Dover had been bombed
several times. Wateringbury did not actually suffer from the air in WW1, but it
is an ongoing theme to which we will return. Terry Bird
WATERINGBURY CE PRIMARY SCHOOL
As we march into
spring and the days grow warmer, school life naturally turns to the outdoors.
We welcomed eight students from Oakwood Grammar School on their Community
Volunteer Day. The boys cleared our pond and nature areas of the winter debris
(and many lost balls!). They worked enthusiastically and industriously and were
a real credit to their school. During the afternoon, the boys read with our
young readers and were excellent role models as they shared their enjoyment of
ur own Gardening Club and Year 2 Gardening School have been busy
planting 50 saplings in our ‘orchard’ at the bottom of the school field; the
children’s interest in digging and planting is wonderful to see.

parent trainee instructor, in a beautiful patch of woodland at Nettlestead
Place. We are fortunate, indeed, to be able to offer these experiences to our
children and we’re very grateful for the support of our community and

CHANGES TO BENEFICE CHURCH SERVICE
Following the arrival of our new vicar Rev Nick
Williams a review of services in the Benefice has taken place and some changes
made. Full details for the 3 churches
will be in May’s magazine. From the
beginning of May the pattern of services in Wateringbury will be: First
Sunday in Month 10am Holy
Sunday in Month 10am Morning
Praise/Matins Third Sunday in Month 8.30pm Prayer Book Communion
Sunday in Month 10am Holy
Sunday in Month Benefice Communion
AID WEEK 14-20 MAY - CAN YOU HELP?
Huge thanks to Gillian
Sessions and Cathy Killer for all the years of service in expertly
co-ordinating Christian Aid Week collections in Wateringbury. They have decided
it is now time to focus on other projects. Nevertheless, a house-to-house
collection is planned again for this year. If you are able to volunteer
to deliver and/or collect envelopes from a street in the village this would be
very helpful. Support and guidance is available for new volunteers. Please
contact Becky Bowie on 01622 813396 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sundays Cool sessions
continue in the vestry during the Sunday service on Easter Sunday (16 April)
and 23 April - all children welcome. From May, our sessions will change
slightly to fit with the new pattern of services - we will meet on the 1st and
4th Sundays of the month. Dates for May therefore are 7 and 28 May. Some of our
older members have graduated from Sundays Cool now that they are at secondary
school and have formed a monthly 'Secondary Division', also during the Sunday
service; next sessions are on the 2 April and 14 May and any secondary school
aged youngsters are welcome to come along and meet them!

Brothers and Sisters in
My comments in this issue
of your parish magazine are broadly the same as those in the ‘Beneficial News’
which I know many of you read, this is for one straightforward reason. The main
subject I’m going to talk about needs to come to the attention not only of
active members of our worshipping community in Wateringbury, Teston and East
Malling but also the readers of the various parish magazines who may not attend
any of our churches, but who like to know what’s going on and like to offer
their views on those events.
As you may be aware we
have been carrying out a consultation on a new service pattern for some time
now. This consultation is now closed but
I would like to thank those of you who made constructive comments as to how
this might be achieved, they have been read with interest by all those involved
in the process. The new service pattern comes into use on Sunday 7 May 2017.
It is by no means perfect, but it is the
best of a job that is in reality much more difficult than it appears on the
surface. For most people who worship at Wateringbury and East Malling there are
some slight changes, there are however no changes at Teston. You will be able to find copies of the full
service pattern on your Church notice boards but as I said there aren’t too
many changes to get used to.
The new pattern allows me
as Vicar of all three Churches to regularly and predictably be with you for
services in the course of the month, something I am looking forward to, in addition
if we are lucky enough to gain any additional ‘staff’ clergy (which is
unlikely) then it will become possible for me to attend even more services
across the benefice.
On Sunday 7 May the days
services across all three churches look like this: 8.30am - Holy Communion
(BCP said) - East Malling
9.45am - Non Eucharistic
family service - East Malling 9.45am - Children’s Church
- Teston 10.00am - Holy Communion
(Common Worship sung) - Wateringbury
For other weeks please see
the church notice boards.
Special services, like
Christmas and Easter are not included this pattern as I will endeavour to
arrange additional clergy cover so if necessary a Eucharist can be held in all
three Churches but we’ll deal with those things as they arrive.
Easter is traditionally a
time of rebirth and renewal and Pentecost a time when we particularly look to
the action of the Holy Spirit in our lives. I hope and pray that this new service pattern
will herald a time of spiritual rebirth and reinvigoration for all of us. Rev
