Tips for surviving a new school from oinin/surviving-a-new-school
1. Be confident: first impressions are important, so keep your head high and don’t slouch… If you walk with

confidence people will think you are confident!

2. Smile: smiling makes you more approachable. Smile and others will smile with you!

3. Be honest: don’t exaggerate or make up cool things about yourself. It won’t be so cool when the truth
comes out.

4. Talk to the person sitting next to you – saying ‘hi’ may be all it takes to start a friendship!

OUT5. Research: find out about the school – there may be a website, or you could try talking to older pupils.

6. Take time getting used to the school: you’ll get to know where everything is so don’t rush!

ew night flight rules covering the next five years have been described as a missed opportunity to bring
relief to the tens of thousands of people under Stansted flight paths who regularly suffer from broken
sleep because of overflying aircraft.

According to Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE), the ight Flight estrictions at Stansted Airport, set to be
introduced in ctober, don’t go nearly far enough to tackle the very serious impacts of night flights in
terms of sleep disturbance and adverse health impacts.

The announcement of the new night flights regime followed a government consultation earlier this year
during which more than 90 percent of all responses were made by individuals, communities and environ-
mental groups, with many seeking an outright ban on night flights. In spite of this, more weight has been
given to industry demands than community concerns.

SSE’s noise adviser Martin eachey expressed disappointment at the new rules, saying that it could
have been the opportunity to reduce the harmful impacts of aircraft noise at night: Transport Secretary
Chris Grayling said that he is ‘fully aware that noise is a major concern for those living near Stansted
Airport and that night noise is widely regarded as the most disturbing impact of aviation’, but the new
rules won’t actually lessen the impacts that people will experience, or improve the uality of their sleep
between 11.30pm and 6am.

SSE maintains that local communities around Stansted and under related flight paths should have been
provided with a more e uitable balance of environmental protection. Instead, the Secretary of State has
simply paid lip service to local concerns with his words, choosing to prioritise the economic benefits of
night flights with his actions.

ne aspect of the new rules, however, has been welcomed by SSE. While the Government has decid-
ed to maintain the present 12,000 annual night time movements at Stansted, some 1,700 hitherto ‘ex-
empt’ aircraft will also be added to the numbers. The use of ‘less noisy’ aircraft at night has grown
rapidly in recent years but no account had been taken of their cumulative impact in terms of creating
noise nuisance and impacting on sleep. Under the new arrangements, these previously ‘exempt’ aircraft
will now be recognised and controlled within the overall allowable aircraft movements.

SSE will continue to work to raise awareness of its four key demands to improve conditions for those
who are currently overflown at night in future night flight rules, gathering evidence to press the case for:

• an une uivocal Government commitment to phase out all night flights at Stansted by 2030, ex-
cept in the case of genuine emergencies

• the annual limit on Stansted night flights to apply, not ust from 11.30pm to 6.00am, but from
11.00pm to 7.00am, so that night truly means night , as defined by the World Health rganisation
(WH ) s Guidelines on Community oise

• a radical overhaul of the current averaging method for measuring aircraft noise so that the offi-
cial Government noise statistics start to represent what people actually have to endure

• an immediate ban on all night time aircraft landings at Stansted from using reverse thrust, except
in the case of genuine emergencies.

The publication of the new ight Flight estrictions was announced in a written statement to arliament:

Trees are an essential part of what makes the landscape of the Hundred Parishes so
distinctive, as silhouettes on the horizon or adding to the pleasing appearance of a garden, tree-lined street or
churchyard. Trees enhance our lives, they frame a view, produce oxygen and give shelter from excessive sun or wind.
They absorb carbon dioxide, help reduce flood risk and provide fuel and timber. Certain species furnish us with fruits
or nuts and all support various forms of wildlife.

In the year 1217, the Charter of the Forest recognized the importance of woodland when King Henry III re-established
the right of free men to forage for food and to graze their animals.

The Woodland Trust is leading a project to highlight the importance of trees today through a new ten-point Charter
for Trees, Woods and People. This is intended to guide UK policy and practice and will be launched on 6th November
2017, the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest. I encourage you to review and, hopefully, sign up to the
Charter via the website

One way to appreciate trees is to take a leisurely walk in the local countryside. There are a number of suggested routes
on our website, whilst Hatfield Forest, run by the National Trust, has some 2 square miles of ancient forest to explore.

Our fingers are crossed for a sunny Indian summer, in particular for our Apple Day on 17 September. We will be
joined by Bishop’s Stortford Ukelele Band and will have apple activities in the walled kitchen garden. There, the
new fruit trees, grass and box hedging have flourished with all the rain. for our tombola stall. The East of England
Apple and Orchards Association and Uttlesford Beekeepers will also join us on Apple Day. So we hope to see you
there…g ates open as usual from 11.30 to last entry 4.30pm.
As we extend the restored areas in the gardens and welcome more visitors our challenges in maintaining our work
increases – so please do consider joining our happy band of volunteers – gardening or helping at open days. Contact
us through our website; Facebook page ; or on 01371 876979.

C Appeal for olunteers

Where Does Water Go? Project for 2017-18.

Essex County Council have asked us to help them gather information on watercourses and
drainage systems around our arish so that they may capture and map a true picture of the
state of these and how the flooding we are all too familiar with occurs.
We are therefore looking for volunteers to take part in surveying and gathering the
information. Half a day training will be organised for next month and assistance will be
provided when we first go out. The surveying will be carried out between September
and March when vegetation has died back

Information we gather will be used by the Waterways Group to monitor the condition of all of
the systems in the parish and allow measures to be taken to ensure that they are properly
monitored and kept clear and free of obstruction.
I am volunteering myself and would really like a few people to help me do this important
work. If you are able to spare a bit of casual time could you please contact me directly on
01279 730568 or e-mail me at [email protected].

Thanks in advance.
