WILLIAM BOOTH
Founder of The Salvation Army
excerpt from Salvation Army website
William Booth was born in Nottingham in 1829. At the age
of 13 he was sent to work as an apprentice in a
pawnbroker's shop to help support his mother and sisters.
The Job made him only too aware of the poverty in which

people lived and how they suffered
humiliation and degradation because of

it. During his teenage years he
became a Christian .When his
apprenticeship was completed he
moved to London, again to work
in the pawnbroking trade. He
joined up with the local Methodist
Church and later decided to
become a minister.
After his marriage to Catherine
Mumford in 1855 he spent several
years as a Methodist minister, travelling all around the
country, preaching. He returned to London with his family,
having resigned his position as a Methodist minister. One
day in 1865 he found himself in the East End of London,
preaching to crowds of people in the streets. Outside the
Blind Beggar pub some missioners heard him speaking and
were so impressed by his powerful preaching that they
asked him to lead a series of meetings they were holding in
a large tent.
The tent was situated on an old Quaker burial ground on
Mile End waste in Whitechapel. The date for the first
meeting was set for 2 July, 1865. Booth soon realised he
had found his destiny. He formed his own movement,
which he called 'The Christian Mission'.
Slowly the mission began to grow but the work was hard,
outposts were eventually established and in time attracted
converts, yet the results remained discouraging-this was just
another of the 500 charitable and
religious groups trying to help in the
East End. It was not until 1878 when
The Christian Mission changed its
name to The Salvation Army that
things began to happen. The impetus
changed. The idea of an Army
fighting sin caught the imagination of
the people and the Army began to
grow rapidly.

The School Council, consisting of 12 pupils from Years
1-6, organised class cake sales for Children in Need. A
total of £80.00 was raised for the charity.

The PFA held our annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday
24th November. The team worked extremely hard and I
would especially like to thank Fiona Hunt for making this
such a successful event. Funds raised will be used to
support the Sensory Garden Project.

All pupils and staff have worked tremendously hard to
produce the Christmas productions, “All around the
World” and “Oliver”. The Infant show was previewed by
The Welcome Club and the Heath Ladies on Tuesday 4th
December. A selection of children from the Infants will
be visiting The Haven on Friday 14th December to
perform a shortened version of their production to the
residents. Demand for tickets has been as high as ever and
I thank our “box office” for distributing them.

The Infant and Junior Disco’s will be held next Tuesday
(18th December). We break up for the Christmas
holidays on Wednesday 19th December and return to
School on Thursday 3rd January 2008.

Thank you to all of those members of the community
that have supported our school. We like to wish you all a

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year.

In connection with the article on trees in last month’s
magazine, I felt the manner in which the contributor set

out their feelings was unwarranted and uncalled for.

KKicickkeerrss I understand the clearance took place to try and stop
continual illegal fly-tipping of items such as rubble,
hardcore, car chassis, tyres, etc. to name but a few. The
trees without TPO’s, unfortunately, paid the price at the
same time. This is privately owned land, albeit with a
footpath running through it, not a rubbish dump. Garden
rubbish should be composted in your own gardens, not
thrown into fields. There are excellent Council run tips at

will announce job cuts at Stansted in the New Year as part
of a programme to reduce costs. Stop Stansted Expansion
(SSE) has learned that certain departments at Stansted are
shortly to be rationalised or relocated.

SSE Campaign Director Carol Barbone said: "We take no
comfort from the present uncertainty at Stansted. We have
always acknowledged that the airport is an important local
employer but there are risks in over-expansion, not least
the risk of the local economy becoming over-dependent on
a single employer. This is a vibrant and diverse local
economy and we should keep it that way. Nobody knows
what the future might hold and so it makes sense to avoid
having too many eggs in one basket."

Blocking of access. You informed us that Highways no
longer paints white lines in front of access points and
dropped kerbs because they are expensive to implement

an offence that should be addressed by the Police. You
have no issue with the Parish Council painting the dropped
kerbs in order to improve driver awareness of their
presence. You also suggest that a way forward for
residents, who suffer from vehicles blocking access to
their driveways and garages, is for them to produce and
install their own information signs.
