15019 Dec 15

Over the centuries, history has shown the church as the
provider of faith, hope and love (charity). St Paul in I
Corinthians 13 lists these three as essential for us.

Imagine a community without this ethos of faith, hope
and love: such a group would only breed loneliness, fear
and discord. Without the day-to-day practice of being
in-community, exercising mutual trust and care, how
would we enable one another to stand side by side, to
live sacrificially and to support one another when the
going gets really hard?

15037 Jan 2016 Remembrance Sunday is, however, one of those
occasions when our sense of community comes to the
fore. 11.00am. on 11 November is a time to say ‘We will
remember them’ – as a community – for those who had
laid their lives for our freedom. These are heart-melting
words, but there is a challenge: as we look to the future,
we know that the maintaining of freedom requires our
commitment, our love of the common good, our
cooperation and action in solidarity with one another.

Eating plenty of healthy food, taking walks and even
naps for a long and happy life are important, but this is
not all. Christ offers eternal life, and this I believe needs
to be experienced daily as a community, as we serve one
another. The starting point is our faith – our love of God
and knowing that we can live in God’s presence for ever.
This ‘eternal life’ is God’s gift to us and it begins here
and now. It includes generosity, forgiving one another,
living in harmony, showing love to those who hurt us,
selflessness, compassion… By the grace of God, it can
grow within us and among us, and it cannot be
destroyed.

14105 Nov 15 Email from Sawbridgeworth Road

Dear Mr Scheggia,
I have just read your article in October 2015 Hatfield
Heath Village magazine about performance based
navigation and your misinformed, more likely selfish,
hence unrepresentative views on flights over Hatfield
Heath.
The article misses the principles of performance based
navigation, figures used are unrepresentative and
dreaming up a new NPR that somehow follows a route
common to the swathe areas of two separate NPRs is
simply outrageous and requires change in the law to be
implemented.
My correspondence with Stansted Airport leads me to
believe that primary intention of the performance based
navigation for the Clacton NPR is to route the aircraft to
the north of the village so that a path within swathe of
Clacton NPR is used between the villages of Hatfield
Heath and Hatfield Broadoak. Implementation of this is
already being successfully carried out by German Wings
and EasyJet with significant reduction of noise in the
village.
Alternative route you appear to put forward in the
magazine flouting the NPRs and their individual legal
swathe areas, that is very close to that being currently
used by Ryanair, is simply outside the swathe of Clacton
NPR, hence is illegal. In fact have no doubt that one of
the reasons that Stansted Airport wants to implement the
performance based navigation is the possible threat of
legal action over this misuse. This route causes massive
disturbance at the north, centre and east of the village
and hence must be removed together with the

In the last magazine my comments were those in italics -
15102 Dec 15
I was asking for the flights to go the southern most tip of

the swathe so that they will be flying over fields, less

stress for the plane as it will not be such a tight turn and

less danger to the village.

Councils representative views. Anyone can go to the

Station Road, Bishop’s Stortford of the house for around ten
years spanning the 1960s/70s
when young Tim Maskell
worked there. The Woskett
family took over the pub from
the long-serving Halls family,
possibly around 1961 and
were there until around the mid 1970s.

The family there consisted of Noel, Peggy
Woskett's brother, who was blind, and Richard, Sid
and Peggy's son. Noel played the piano and organ
in the saloon bar. Peggy was also a pianist and so
was Richard who lived there with his wife Violet,
who passed away 25 years ago, and son Stewart.
Music was very much in vogue at The Stag in those
days with Noel playing in his own dance band “The
Noel Jones Rhythm” and Richard pianist in his
own group with Roger Speller guitar and a
drummer whose name he cannot recall.

WINDOWS ON THE PAST

Extract from a letter written by Rev E A Du Cane,
who along with other Vicars, was asked to write on
their reminiscences upon the Village Magazine
celebrating its 50 year anniversary in 1943.

“The war had been in progress about a year when I

arrived and most of the younger men had already

gone to the front, if I am not wrong I think 79 joined

up straight away before conscription came in.

A cyclist Company of the London Regiment was

billeted in the village under Capt. Cole at Trinity Hall.

They gave a very good Concert and farewell

entertainment to the Village before they left for

France in March 1916

A young officer named Prothero on his first flight

from Farnborough got out of his course and crashed

in a ditch near a farm where Mr & Mrs Gus Reynolds

lived, - he was unhurt,”

Liz Read (1950 -2015)
A very special lady and a Reception Class Teacher

at Hatfield Heath School 1988-2010.

I had the pleasure of first meeting Liz in January

1993 as my daughter began her formal education at

Hatfield Heath Primary School. During the next 22

years I was blessed to

develop a very strong

friendship with Liz as we

became work colleagues

and true friends.

To work with Liz in the

Early Years classroom was

amazing. Liz had a natural

gift with people, both

children and adults. It was

wonderful to see her greet new children and their

parents into the classroom at the start of each term.

Quickly and quietly Liz would welcome and reassure

both children and adults that all would be well and

that the children would be nurtured, educated and

loved.

Liz was an inspirational teacher but a lady who never

wanted the limelight herself, she was always quick to

praise others but reluctant to receive praise herself,

always saying that she was just doing her job.
15094 Aug 16 Each new day in the classroom was a rewarding

HUTLEY ELECTRICAL LTD positive unique day. Liz and I would begin each day
with a quick hug ready to greet the children. Liz

DOMESTIC & INDUSTRIAL believed that every day should be a special day for
each and every child in her care (and also the adults).

ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS Liz was a strong advocate for the education of a

young child to be fun. Many children will remember

Commercial projects we pride ourselves in the world outside of the classroom.
Liz was also an innovator within the classroom,

on offering a competent, polite, tidy always happy to learn from new research. However

professional service and endeavour to the beauty of Liz was that she would always take any
work with the minimum of disruption to new initiative that step further, so ensuring that the

care. An example of this is when we introduced a

apologetic when she herself needed support. I never
once heard Liz utter the words ‘why me’? During
these years we still laughed and cried as new battles
needed to be faced.
Liz packed much into these five years when sadly
she was no longer in the classroom. With Richard
alongside her she set up and ran the Rainbow club in
Harlow, providing an afternoon of fun and games for
people, and also more often than not also cooking a
lunch as well. Liz poured all her energies into
enriching the lives of others.
Liz and I shared much during our 22 years of
friendship. We had moments of deep sadness but
also days of great celebration such as the birth of
Aydon. We laughed and cried together and shared
much. Liz was more than a loyal friend to me she
was an inspirational lady and each day was enriched
by knowing Liz. She will be greatly missed but I
feel very lucky that I was able to spend so much time
with Liz and was able to call her my friend.
Sally Sargeant .
There is to be a memorial service for Liz in the
village in a few weeks time.
