in 2009. The results show that the average height in 2008 was Charity Cycle Run
4095 ft and in 2009 it was 3637 ft (above the airport level) an
average difference of 458ft lower than the previous year

which would explain why the noise from the aircraft seemed

Kolkata to Kalimpongmore noticeable!!! There was also a slight increase in average

speed, 227 knts to 231 knts.

The explanation given, is that a different Noise Abatement
Departure Procedure is being followed by most airlines,
called in the trade NADP2, rather than NAPD1 which was
more usual back in early 2008. This should only be affecting
the way in which the aircraft fly from 800ft to 3000ft so
shouldn't be affecting us when they pass over at 3600 ft (our
average being 3637ft) or more, but, given the reduction of the
average height of the aircraft, there are more flights at a lower
height than last year. On checking Webtrak, a website
providing the flight height and speed of aircraft, arriving and
leaving Stansted, there are many flights that are flying over

The landowner is willing to consider the project. A
rough idea of the cost of clearing the site, treating the
regrowth, ploughing in the winter and cultivating
early next spring has been received. Water mains are
nearby. Cost of a rabbit-proof fence is being
investigated.

An initial report on the proposal appeared in the July
parish magazine and by July 6 six people had
registered their interest, some opting for half-plots.
A report on the present situation was presented to the
parish council on Wednesday July 8 by Councillor
Mel Sullivan.

The council indicated that the size of response will
influence any decision to invest in the allotments. So
it is vital anyone who thinks they would like a plot to
registere that interest as soon a possible by leaving
their name and telephone number with

contact James MacHardy, Roseisle, Sawbridgeworth
Road, Hatfield Heath. 01279 730711

I asked James how he became involved below is his
answer

Bruno,
In 1994/1995 our daughter taught at the school after
being told about it by a former teacher from the
school who now lives in Stortford. Since then we
have visited the school and always kept up an
association. The main contact we have now is a
Church of Scotland Minister who now lives on
Arran and was a Chaplin at the school in the 1960's.
He organises charity events, including the cycle run,
to raise money for the school.

Have you thought recently how tatty the village looks
at times.
Litter on the Heath – we have an anti-litter law but it
never seems to be enforced by the police. Have you
seen the litter today, Tuesday, 14th July, on the cricket
outfield and in the hedgerow, no doubt left by the
youths who park and kick a ball around in the
evenings. I know that members of the public regularly
pick it up but what can be done to stop it being
dropped in the first place?
When did you last see a Uttlesford footpath sweeper in
the village?
The service road in front of the Post Office, does it
need re-surfacing?
The recent proliferation of advertising signs that have
no connection with the village – there is village
organisation advertising sign on the village outskirts
that has been there for 13 months – it had been removed
by Wednesday, where was it and which organisation?
Estate Agents advertise houses for sale in Hatfield
Heath with the wording “Attractive Village”, is it?
We pay our Council Tax but do we get value for
money or are we just at the end of the line, and border
of both Uttlesford and Essex?

The second runway Inquiry has been put on hold yet

again, pending the outcome of the appeal being made by

BAA against the Competition Commission's ruling that

Stansted must be sold. The news brings with it the relief

of a stay of execution from an expensive Public Inquiry

lasting more than a year, but the fact remains that despite

repeated pressing for its withdrawal by SSE the

application is still on the table and could be revived in the

near future. It is therefore essential that we maintain the

pace of our campaign so that we are not caught out. We

must not allow ourselves to be lulled into a false sense of

STICKY FINGERS security.

Wonderous Joy

The moment I see your little face,
with eyes, nose and mouth all in their place.

My mind strays to another time.
Where memories flood. It‛s so sublime.

To watch my child with theirs is such joy!

The miracle of birth will n‛ver age.
Each new life brings love at ev‛ry stage.
A life so new and fresh my heart is full.

My child fulfilled, beyond anything
I could ever do!

To watch my child with theirs is Wonderous Joy!!

WHY NOT COME TO OUR INVESTIGATION

Farmer's Market Re:The Mystery of Willie Brown by John Sly.
On behalf of all those interested in the names on the
AUGUST 15TH Hatfield Heath War Memorial, I would like to thank John
Sly for the excellent investigation into who was the
3rd Saturday in the month Willie Brown on this Memorial. John’s article was
10am until 12 noon included in the magazine for July 2009 and his
investigation proves without any doubt in my mind

I hope that we can prevail on John to continue to use his

on the War Memorial can be resolved – Oscar Anderson
perhaps being the most difficult. Thank you again John
