Oak between a pony and trap
driven by Mr J Button of the Bryn at Harlow College

motor car from London.
Mr Button was thrown out of

Roger Pyle.

Hi Roger,

Apologies for not contacting lately - simply because
it was not possible here, out in the middle of
Highlands in Papua New Guinea.

I got sent sent out here for Medecins sans Frontieres
early July. It is a strange mission compared with the
others I have been on since 1999 ! Most other
missions have been conflict, rebellious etc. as you
can probably imagine/remember Kosovo, South
Sudan during the split with the SPLA and


Khartoum Gov't., then Darfur when the problems Olivia Barry
started beginning of 2004.After that Uganda -
problems with the LRA, Armenia - problems with Mezzo Soprano/Contralto
Azerbajan (10 year fight) then a huge earthquake
killing 50,000 people.

After that I went to Malawi again August 2006 to Classical/Opera/Musical Theatre
June last year. (That was a different mission, it
started in 1997 for research into HIV/AIDS). It's
been a wonderful set up - in 2002 when I first went
there we had 8 people in our, Thyolo, district on the
original ARV treatment drugs, it worked but was
about US$ 1,700 per patient per year and the drugs
gave them a life expectancy of 5-6 years after being
put on ARV. When I left last year, the drugs had
been made a lot less tablets per day, (2 instead of
11) and costs about 170 Euro per year for drugs and
consultations, plus a life expectancy of 30 years
after being put on ARV now. June last year we had
16,642 people on the ARV and it is working well.

Now Papua is totally different to all the other places Available to sing for weddings, funerals and other events

What do we know about the early history of the village?

including: Sawbridgeworth, The population of London doubled in the eighteenth
Bishop’s Stortford, Harlow, century and the people needed bread, made from Essex
Elsenham, Hatfield Broad Oak, corn. Inventions and new techniques led to progress in
Hatfield Heath farming methods. William Selwyn, a merchant, came
from London to live at Down Hall and was a shrewd
111a London Road Sawbridgeworth Herts CM21 9JJ enough businessman to see ways in which farming could
T:01279 724878 - F:01279 724878 be improved. Transport to London was easier than ever
before; roads with turnpikes were built from the west side
of Essex to London and the river Stort was made
navigable for barges. There was thus lots of
encouragement to expand.
The historian looking at rate books can see that farmers
got hold of all the extra land they could incorporating it
into their own property so that by the end of the century
the number of farms was reduced from 38 to 22. As
farming developed there was need of more workers and
more workers caused an expansion of the crafts that
served the labourers, blacksmith, wheel-wright, saddler
and so on.
The number of farms in Hatfield Heath diminished still
further during the nineteenth century, from 22 to 13, the
largest of these was Matching Barns, 360 acres, which
employed 13 workers, Corringales covered 200 acres and
employed 7 workers. Mr. Brown gave details of the area


and size of work force of all 13 farms. Then he went on James Gardening Service
to talk about a serious blow that hit this parish 110 years
ago; in 1874 there was a tremendous influx of American All Garden Works
wheat and Essex farms, doing nicely at that time, found & Odd Jobs
that their corn prices could not compete with the
American ones. The move to the West which we ha"e 01279 651 498 07963 989 851

Sell homes back to the community, demands SSE

SSE is backing demands from local residents that hundreds

of homes bought by BAA in anticipation of approval of a Home Visiting Practice
second runway should be fast-tracked back to the

community. “BAA must sell back houses more quickly Mrs. Julie Golden S.R.Ch.
now that the second runway has been rejected,” said Peter

Sanders, SSE chairman. “The sale of these homes to BAA Est. 1994
has destroyed local communities. BAA must now do the

decent thing and reintegrate them in order to revitalise 01279 817 810
communities.” His comments were backed by local resident

Maggie Sutton who made the tough decision to move from

Broxted to nearby Lindsell. BAA’s actions had led to A professional service at a competitive rate
‘strangulation of the community’ and it now needed to be

‘sewn back together’, she said. BAA claims that since 2007

it has been selling, where possible, properties acquired

under its blight scheme but not required in the second DIXON & CO
runway project. BAA spokesman Melvyn Nice, quoted in

the Saffron Walden Reporter, said, “Following the CHARTERED CERTIFIED ACCOUNTANTS
withdrawal of the planning permission in late May 2010

[for the second runway], we are reviewing and updating,

where necessary, this managed disposal strategy.” BAA has For local, friendly advice contact Paul Dixon

of the market distortion it fears.
Government reiterates ‘no runways’ commitment

Aviation minister Theresa Villiers has reiterated the Red BarnInteriors Limited
Coalition Government’s commitment not to permit
additional airport runways at Stansted, Heathrow or
Gatwick. When prompted by a question from Brian Ross,
SSE’s economics adviser, at the New Direction for

Aviation Policy conference in London , Ms Villiers said

she was not in the habit of ‘tearing up election manifestos’.

She accused the aviation lobby of being ‘hung up’ on the

need for additional runways and added, “there is so much

we can do to make out airports better without making them

bigger,” according to Air Transport Intelligence.

Government and BAA collide over flight tax

The Government is considering raising air passenger duty

(APD) in the UK on flights from congested airports in the

South East, aviation minister Theresa Villiers announced at

the aviation conference (above). Such a move would help

to create more of a balance between Heathrow and Gatwick

and the UK ’s regional airports, she said.

BAA writes off massive costs over failed runway bid

BAA has admitted that cancellation of plans for new

runways at Stansted and Heathrow has resulted in writing

off costs in excess of £100 million covering surveying,

architectural, planning, consultancy and legal expenses.

The airports operator will also write off between £30

million and £35 million covering the costs of buying Beautiful Hand- made
property at Stansted in anticipation of a second runway. Kitchens, Bedrooms, Office Furniture
