A u g u s t 2016 THE MAGAZINE THAT KEEPS YOU IN TOUCH Est. 1893
Hello Hatfield Heath! My name is Dawn Jewson and I am the new Church of England
vicar for this village and for our neighbours down the road in Sheering.
My family and I moved into the Vicarage in Broomfields in late June. Previously we
lived in Ealing, West London, for 30+ years and, although Ealing is renowned for being
a ‘leafy suburb’, it can’t lay claim to much in the way of fields or country lanes, so there
has been much excitement in the family about the move! My previous church, where I
was curate, was right on the high street in Southall, an area sometimes known as ‘Little
India’, so the church context couldn’t be more different too.
I am originally a Lancashire lass, husband Andrew is from Deal in Kent – we met while
working in IT in London’s Covent Garden - and our son Will was born and bred in West
London. My background is in European languages, education and IT training, Andrew is
an IT project manager working for HM Treasury in Westminster, and Will is studying
Industrial Design at Loughborough University. Our cat Tiger is ginger and white, very
cute and VERY naughty - but of course that’s his job.
My first priority as vicar is to get to know as many people as possible in the two
communities, to hear about people’s concerns and their joys, and to see where we as the
church can offer help, support and love. I know that both churches (St Mary’s in Sheering
and Holy Trinity in Hatfield Heath) are popular for weddings, christenings and Christmas
services, but please know that we are here for you when life is difficult or challenging too.
I can say from personal experience that the church community here is warm and welcoming.
I’d love to meet you personally, perhaps over a tea or coffee, so do get in touch if you’d like to have a chat. Or just
hang onto my contact details for the right moment!
With every blessing,
'Our new vicar, Revd Dawn Jewson was licensed by the Bishop
Dawn of Chelmsford on 5th of July. She and her husband Andrew are
busy unpacking and settling into village life. We held a village
welcome supper for them on 9th July, hosted by Pam and Bob
Rev. Dawn Jewson Langman, when 65 villagers had an enjoyable evening with
Priest in Charge (Vicar) wonderful food all washed down with glasses of Pimm's. It was a
Holy Trinity, Hatfield Heath lovely sociable evening and the weather was kind to us too.
St Mary the Virgin, Sheering Look out for Dawn in the village and do say hello to her! '

David Deacon Message to our Advertisers
[email protected] T: 01279 436196 Without your advertising paying the printing costs and
www.ddpropertycare.co.uk M: 07403443959 expenses we would not have a magazine published
monthly and delivered free to 850 recipients. So you
are really important to us.
The magazine is managed, edited and distributed by a
small band of volunteers who have a slick operation
that gets the magazine compiled, printed and delivered
promptly by the beginning of the month. But we need
your co-operation on something.
In the past few years a lot of time and energy has been
used chasing late payments for advertising; not always
successfully. The number of bad debts in the past is
significant and is increasing year on year. At the 2016
Magazine AGM it was resolved that payment for
advertising will be required in advance.
To keep it simple we now require payment for
advertising in the next edition of the magazine to be
received by the deadline for content copy, which is the
16th of the preceding month. If you have paid you are
in, if you haven’t you are out. We will send a
reminder when your subscription expires several
weeks before the renewal date. Please don’t ask for an
extension as the negotiations are an unwelcome
distraction for the editor at a really busy time.
For most of our regular advertisers this won’t be a
change to what already happens; for the others we
hope you will understand the change.
For payments received after the deadline for the
planned commencement month, we will start the
advertising from the month after payment is received.

flightpath. NR and BJ to write to the airport to support the move with comments. It is recommended that as
many villagers as possible who have suffered noise disturbance this summer with the Dover Route move com-

4th July 2016 SSE GUIDANCE FOR NATS DEPARTURE ROUTES CHANGE AT STANSTED POST
In February 2016, NATS implemented the transfer of Stansted daytime flights from the south-east
departure routes (Detling) to the east departure routes (Clacton). This followed earlier approval by the
CAA for the proposed airspace change. This has had the effect of doubling the traffic on the Clacton
route. Near the airport, more people have suffered an increase in daytime over
flights compared with the number of people where daytime overflights have been removed.
While there are winners and losers as a result of this change, SSE opposed
the transfer of flights and published information via link http://stopstanstedexpansion.com/nats.html.
SSE said that NATS had ignored local residents’ objections – see press release via link
The CAA’s airspace change process requires that a post implementation review is carried out by NATS
to assess whether the objectives of the change have been realised and whether the anticipated impacts
and benefits have been delivered. The review is normally carried out 12 months after implementation to
ensure that a full cycle of winter and summer operations has been observed in all weather and traffic
The sponsor of the change to departure routes is NATS in conjunction with Stansted Airport. The CAA
had the responsibility for the approval decision with a requirement to refer its decision to the Secretary
of State for Transport in exceptional circumstances.
The post implementation review will take feedback from all stakeholders including local communities
and, while the review methodology is currently being consulted upon by the CAA, this guidance
outlines actions that residents and local communities can be taking in advance of the formal review.
POST IMPLEMENTATION ACTIONS
SSE recommends that if residents have been adversely affected by the transfer of departure routes,
they should make their views known directly to Stansted Airport using the SSE website form via link
http://stopstanstedexpansion.com/noise_complaint_form.asp. Stansted Airport has already stated that
complaints about intensification of flights and noise will be forwarded to NATS and the CAA.
Alternatively letters should be addressed to Stansted Airport at Noise Communications Team,
Enterprise House, Stansted Airport, Essex CM24 1QW. Stansted Airport’s telephone line for noise
complaints 0800 243 788 is currently disconnected.
SSE’s position published during the consultation for this change can be found via link
SSE%20Position.pdf which may help as background information.
FURTHER ACTIONS YOU MAY WISH TO TAKE
Residents are also encouraged to let your local council know of the impacts of the change and how it
has affected you in your particular location. You might also consider contacting your local Member of
