It’s already September, the year has been flying-by and
school holidays are almost over. Here at the Forest we are
busy sawing and milling in preparation for the upcoming
Wood Fest and as always this month there is plenty to
talk about.
As autumn colours start to make their way through the
Forest there is always an impressive array of fungi to be
found throughout the Forest. You can help us by taking

email asking for help with aircraft noise issues.
Why Pay High Street Prices? Two aircraft noise issues which are dominating the noise
complaints we’re currently hearing about at Stop Stansted
Mimosa D E S I G N S Expansion prompt us to email you for your help.
The first of these is the increased noise resulting from
new practices by aircraft taking off from Stansted which
are keeping planes lower and noisier for longer between
800ft and 3000ft. We mentioned this in our letter to
supporters earlier this month but we now need your help
to gather further details so we have the full picture.
While we’ve already had a series of emails from
supporters reporting disturbances resulting from the
lower flying, we know this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Your efforts on one or more of these fronts will help our
noise adviser Martin Peachey to investigate further
through his role on the Stansted Airport Consultative
Committee and BAA’s Noise and Track Keeping
Working Group and to press for meaningful action.
The second issue on which we’re trying to gather more
information stems from the introduction of the new Air
Asia X flights whose aircraft have been upsetting the
community since the Malaysian service was first started
in March.
The planes being used are Airbus A340 aircraft – large
wide-bodied, four-engined noisy machines – on the
‘Clacton’ route which means that people east of the
airport are affected both in the day and at night. The fact
that they’re flying at night makes the noise nuisance
worse and in June there were a number of occasions
when these aircraft contravened even the Department for
Transport’s noise restrictions. This means BAA has to
take action, so your reports will be valuable to pressing
for change.

Hatfield Heath Parish Council has agreed in principle to
invest in the Broomfields allotments project. It will seek
a formal long term agreement with the landowner and
look at setting up proper running of the site. Protective
fencing and water supply are being investigated. The
council has been complimented on its bold decisions.
That’s the basis of the council’s decisions when it met on
the 12th. The same day the 17th person registered their
interest in becoming a plot holder. So far the majority of
names have opted for half-allotments.

If you have not registered your interest, contact

Frank Walsh on 01279 730 512

there was not ONE child - after a along pause he asked for

White Horses

The powerful ocean ebbs and flows.
I begin to dip my toes.

Peace surrounds, apart from sounds
Of sea, and breath in me.

Footprints in the sand disappear from view.
The surface once more new.

Sun glistens on the water’s surface.
A wonder of nature man cannot surpass
And gently from beyond the ocean deep

White horses rise and softly creep
Towards me in my reverie,

Inspiring dreams. My thoughts run free.

& Odd Jobs Dear Sir
I refer to Albert Murrell's letter in the August edition

himself has done a lot of research on the subject of the Great War

War Memorial. Unfortunately there are two serious difficulties in

and levels of flexibility First, lack of original information. Not only have so many service
records of the soldiers who fought in that war been destroyed or
Beginners/intermediate/over 50's damaged, but there are relatively few other published sources for
the millions who served in the ranks of the Army. Officers are
Day and Evenings Available much better recorded because many regimental journals
produced short obituaries, and because officers tended to be more
articulate in terms of writing letters, and publishing books and
diaries. Although many letters from the ranks do exist, several
books were written by rankers, and many academics have
published studies using contributions from particular individuals,
the experiences and personal details of the vast majority of
soldiers remain unknown
Second, contradiction between records. The story of James
Francis is a simple case in point. Whereas Soldiers Died In The
Great War records him as having been born in Hatfield Broad
Oak, he clearly stated in the 1911 census that he had been born in
Hatfield Heath. In 1915 this discrepancy would have been totally
irrelevant; in any case, those records were not created for us, a
century later, but as contemporary working documents serving a
contemporary purpose. Researchers can sometimes tease out the

EVE'S SIDE OF THE STORY YOGA classes in Hatfield Heath

creation?" "Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one
oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The
ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals
