More Parish Notes from John the Ticket
If what I have heard on Radio 4 is true, it has now been admitted that we will be less well off after Brexit. Surprise, surprise. Govt warns of six-month border disruption under 'no-deal' Brexit. Dear Theresa survives “no confidence” motion but some one hundred plus voted against her. Parliament must contain some of the most two faced persons, don’t you think? Well not too long to go ‘til UK government decides what they want to do.
In Robins, the children have been learning about repetitive poems. They have looked at some examples and thought about different aspects of them, before planning and writing their own version or an additional verse.
One of the poems they studied was ‘Move It’, by Michael Rosen – a rhyming poem about different ways to move/modes of transport. Year 2s not only had to make their new verses rhyme, but also had to add in adjectives to each of their lines.
Here is one of the poems, written by Freddie Scrimshaw:
You gotta move it
To prove it
To prove it.
Don’t make a huge fuss
On a big bus
Take a long trip
On a big ship.
The sharp-eyed amongst you may notice a change, minor to you, but a large one to the Ringers. After twenty-one years as Tower Captain I am delighted to tell you that I have passed the position/keys/ropes over to Jacquie Hazell, who has run our practices for many months and has been our Tower Captain, in all but name, during that time.

Special thank you to Chris Howell for her help with deliveries and collections over the years
Having had the pleasure of serving in the role for twenty five years, I feel now this is the right time to bow out.
Rupert Mcguigan is taking over the reins in 2019 ; I could not wish for a better successor.

Welcome to 2019 and doesn’t the New Millennium now seem a long time ago?
If 2018 was a year of uncertainty in global politics and financial markets, let’s try to be optimistic for 2019. A Brexit withdrawal deal of some sort will be done because it’s in both sides’ vital interest to conclude one. It will go to the wire, as it always does and the wire might even be moved further down the track, even if our Prime Minister has to kiss Jean Claude Junker, poor thing, and shake hands with Jacob Rees Lost.
