Paulton Remembers the Outbreak of World War 1

 

A special committee has been set up in Paulton to commemorate those who fought and died in World War One.Many activities have been planned over the next four years coinciding with the centenary of the war. The first of these will take place this Sunday, August 3rd, in Paulton’s Memorial Park.  A service of praise will take place at 10.30, with readings and hymns.This will be followed by a short service at Paulton’s War Memorial, to remember in particular the twenty eight men from Paulton who died in World War One.This will be followed by refreshments kindly provide by the Cellar Club in the Methodist Hall.


Two members of the British Legion,(pictured) Dave Hamblin and Ken Rideout will be standard bearers of the Paulton British Legion and North Somerset Light Infantry flags, at the service at the War memorial, organised by Dave Hamblin.Both men have seen active service. Ward Councillor John Bull commented “It’s good to see this event taking place commemorating the huge sacrifice made by the many who died”. Fellow Ward Councillor Liz Hardman remarked  “Not only has Paulton organised this service of praise on Sunday for all who participated in World War One, but also, Paulton Junior School pupils have painted pictures of the war which are on display around the village.

So do come along to the Memorial Park,this Sunday, to commemorate the start of World War One.

Also on the actual day war broke out,Monday  August 4th, a special candlelight vigil will be held by the War memorial. This is being organised by Gail Garlick and fellow members of PiPP (Pride in Paulton Partnership).

 Candles will be lit between 10 and 11pm and the lights at the War memorial will be switched off during this time. All are welcome and bring your own candle to light if you wish. Similar candle light vigils are being held all over the country.Marks and Spencer are selling special candles for this event (see candles held by Gail garlick, Liz hardman and Hugh Warren pictured above)

 This is the 35th anniversary of the unveiling, and the 75th Anniversary of Arnhem.

There will be lots going on.  It is a free event but obviously donations are always welcome so that double hills can be remembered for ever. 

This year the organisers are hoping to have even more children to lay poppies just as they do in Arnhem.  The relatives of the soldiers would be there and they would welcome the attendance of as many Paulton residents as possible.


Later in September (on 19th) there is to be an evening of poetry and prose organised by councillor John Bull at Holy Trinity Church.

Sunday 9th November is the nations  Remembrance Sunday and we will bring you news of village events nearer the time.

On the week following, Sunday 23rd November there will be a Sing Along of songs from the war years.  This will chart the different moods of the wars from the feelings of grand adventure to the harsh realities, and incorporate the sentimental, defiant and sometimes humorous moods of the British public.  The team leading the event were responsible for the very successful Christmas  Sing Along last year.  Be sure to come and join in!
 *****
First World War Trail

Paulton Junior children have  been working with PIPP to design a commemorative First World War trail. This project involved investigating different aspects of life during the war and creating canvasses to represent their findings. These canvasses will be displayed in businesses around the village during the next term, so keep your eyes peeled.

Early in July the Methodist Church put on a Flower Festival the theme of which was 'Remember This'.  Contributors exhibited displays based on significant events of the 20th and 21st century.  One could not fail to be impressed by Sylvia Fielden's display depicting the start of the Great War and of Carol Wilkes display on the Women's Land Army among many others.  If anyone has any photos we would love to share them here for those who were unable to attend the event.


If you know of any other events in the village please send us an email.

New Paulton Author



We have a new author in the village. His name is Michael J. Rayhill. He has lived in the village for over 40 years and as he is approaching retirement has decided to release a book he wrote many years ago. Retirement will give him the time to give his full attention to his book and to pursue further writing. His book is called RUN MOTHER TO BE and is based in the village although he has had to change the name to Calton. He explains, “The reason I have changed the name is because I have moved the old Coal Canal Basin about a mile further up the valley towards the village. I have used other points of interest such as The Ridge Path and the old Saxon Burial Ground which local people will recognise but have been altered slightly in my book.” Rayhill says that the house used is where he lived most of his adult life in Paulton in Valley View Road which, in the book is referred to as Valley Road. “It’s what I like to call a fantasy thriller when a young pregnant mum goes on the run thinking she has committed a murder. There’s some mysticism involved and some, at times, shocking violence so it’s not for the faint hearted.” Rayhill likes to think his book deals with ordinary people confronted by extraordinary circumstances. “All too often books take you into upper class houses and mansions and the local landed gentry who have to face murder, mayhem and scandal. Which is all very well but what about the ordinary folk, the struggling mortgage payers bringing up families, don’t they get involved in adventures too?” People who have read the book have commented that it is “brilliant” “absorbing” and “a thoroughly good read”.

Paulton Junior School have created a resource on the iPads to help anyone in our school community who would like to learn about plants.

 

'On Monday 2nd June two people from each class went to see Dr. Helena Crouch in the play scape to learn about botany (that is the study of flowers). We identified different varieties of flowers, shrubs and trees. We saw many flowers eg. Mouse ear, hazel bush, woundwort and many, many more. Everyone had so much fun and we had a great learning experience! A big thank you to Mrs Tidbury and Dr. Crouch'.

By Lily Jones and Imogen Baldwin.

Year 4 children at Paulton Junior School have been designing posters to encourage the community to pick up their pets’ poo! They created catchy slogans and strong messages. Within each class a winning poster was voted on to be put up around the community. The children wanted them put onto weatherproof material so they would not get ruined by the rain or ripped down easily. Blue Gecko based in Hallatrow were kind enough to print the children’s posters for them. Councillor Liz Hardman who has been working with the children as part of PIPP (Pride in

Paulton Partnership) has also been into school to deliver an

assembly about being a responsible pet owner.

This is for you

Community organisations are being encouraged by Bath & North East Somerset Council to access free furniture, stationery and equipment that is no longer needed and is being given away locally.

The national online re-use network WARPit (Waste Action Resource Portal) gives away hundreds of surplus reusable items that would otherwise have been wasted by being sent to landfill or lying unused.

Charities, social enterprises, and community or faith groups delivering a social objective can access the local group on the WARPit network set-up by the Council – this means sports clubs, scouts and brownies and any groups serving a social or charitable purpose can join.
