Councillor Report.
The first phase of the new development at Three Score is to include forty-seven council houses. These will be among the first council houses to be built in Norwich for over twenty years. Eight shared equity homes are also planned to be built with a 75% initial purchase price. It seems particularly fitting that these houses are to built here in Bowthorpe as Bowthorpe homes were among the last council houses to be built twenty years ago, e.g The Runnel and Tippett Close. This is a welcome start to provide desperately needed additional social housing for young families and it is hoped that there will be more to come. On behalf of Sally Button, Mike Sands and myself I would like to wish all residents a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New year. Jo Storie 747617

The Anglian Pensioners Association Our Open Letter (abbreviated) www.seniorsawake.co.uk

The Norfolk Community Foundations Surviving Winter Campaign recognises that there are thousands of elderly and vulnerable people worrying about how they will afford to heat their homes in Winter, and is appealing to others to donate money to assist them. The 25p a week Age Addition was first introduced in 1971 at a time when it represented 4% of the weekly State pension. Had that percentage continued it would be worth over 4 a week today, but it has remained static for 41 years. Most of todays elderly have paid National Insurance Contributions during their working lives. It was not a tax, its sole purpose was to fund State pensions and benefits. In 2012 the Treasury, responding to our Freedom of Information request, stated that in 2009 the surplus in the NIF was 47,872,832,000. Now the Pensions Minister claims there is no pot of money that could be used to increase the State pension. Todays pensioners have worked, brought up their families, paid their dues and have been law-abiding citizens. They need a State pension that allows them to live out the remainder of their lives in reasonable comfort, devoid of having to choose between eating and heating.

Crime does not stop for Christmas. But we can all take simple steps to ensure a happy and crime free Christmas and New Year;
Your Car Keep presents out of sight if they can be seen they can be stolen. Always close windows. Sat Navs and laptops are also high on the car thieves shopping list. Take them with you when you leave your car. Never leave the keys in the ignition and never leave the vehicle unattended when turned on during the morning de-frosting. Your House Ensure that all doors and windows are locked and all gifts are kept out of view. Never leave car keys or handbags downstairs at night take them with you upstairs. Going on holiday? Consider using automatic lights, cancel milk and paper deliveries. Ask a neighbour to keep an eye on your house. Before opening the door to a stranger, use a door chain. Your property Mark all property using an ultra violet pen with your postcode and house number. Record all serial numbers of your valued property and new presents. Record a basic description. Lock all bicycles. Never leave your cheque book and card together. Keep your pin number confidential.
Please help us to let everyone enjoy this festive season without the heartache of falling victim to crime. Report anything suspicious to your local neighbourhood team. If you feel that its too trivial or a waste of our time, let us make that decision. It may fit in to a larger picture no matter how small the piece of information. You can contact us through our non-emergency number of 101 or through crime stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. We will be holding a Police Street Surgery between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 15 th December at Wendene Shopping Centre where you can come along to speak with your Neighbourhood Policing Team. Or if you cant make it please contact us to have your say on local policing matters by dialling 101. On behalf of the Bowthorpe Neighbourhood Policing Team I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and New Year. Pc 591 Andy Tomlinson

A large department store was getting itself ready for the Christmas season, and the staff selected for Santas grotto were being trained. Among them was a student called Sam, who was trying to earn some money over the Christmas break. The manager reminded the staff, `Whatever you do, smile, and dont frighten the children. Remembering what he was told, Sam began his first day. He put on the red Santa outfit and the white beard and then waited for the first child to arrive. It wasnt long before parents came into the grotto with a little boy in tow. The boy screamed with fright as soon as he saw Sam. `Its Santa, dear. Dont be afraid, the parents said as they tried to comfort the child. But that didnt help. Sam tried to console him too, but that didnt help either. Eventually, in desperation, Sam had an idea. He slowly peeled off his long white beard and removed the red and white hood. The child instantly stopped crying. Before him was a young, fresh-faced Santa without wrinkles but with youthful blue eyes. Sam took off the rest of the costume and gave the little boy a smile. Now all the little boy could see was a young man in ordinary clothes. Rather than screaming or bursting into floods of tears, the child smiled back. Sam then put his Santa costume back on again. As he did so, he told the little boy of a story of how, long, long ago, God himself came to live on earth with us so that no one would be frightened of him. God had come in ordinary clothes and lived like other ordinary children to show us just how much we are loved by him. The little boy listened intently. The parents, however, were furious with the young Santa, and fumed, `How dare you! Youve spoiled all the magic of Christmas! Sam quietly replied, `Maybe its the end of the magic, but its the beginning of the wonder. In Jesus Christ we see the unveiling of God in human form. The Bible tells us, He was in the world, and thought he world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. The way to experience the wonder of Christmas is to invite Jesus into your life. Its that simple. So, why not invite him in to your life and discover the wonder of Christmas for yourself. Happy Christmas! Revd Mark Elvin, Bowthorpe Church

ASHWELL COURT
Hello again. Well it is mid-November already as I am writing this for the December issue and Christmas is just around the corner. Already there is talk about putting up the Christmas decorations and, of course, the Christmas Tree. Our last celebration was, of course, Halloween and a great evening was enjoyed by various witches and a particularly fearsome monster. This was not only a Halloween evening but was also celebrating 25 years since the opening of Ashwell Court. Entertainment was provided by Patsy Rose and included some very energetic and lively dancing. Some of us joined Bradecroft for a lovely Mystery Tour and it really was a mystery as the driver seemed to go north, then west, and did his best to confuse us, until we ended up at Sandringham for lunch - unfortunately we did not see the Queen. After a lovely lunch the mystery continued until we arrived at Wells-next-the-Sea for tea. It was a very interesting and enjoyable trip through some beautiful countryside. Now the installation of new kitchens is almost completed, Fosters (who did an excellent job with the minimum of upheaval) thanked us for our cooperation by giving us all a fish and chip lunch. This was much appreciated and our thanks to Fosters both for the lunch and for the excellent way the work was organised and completed. Our card stall to raise money for the War Veterans to visit Normandy in 2014 is very successful and is still open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, also Friday mornings. These are beautiful hand-made cards suitable for any occasion. Our November entertainment programme ended with a visit by Helen and Michael, which as usual was very enjoyable. Our next entertainment by Tony Cann Is on the night of our Christmas Dinner, 16 December. To conclude, we at Ashwell Court wish all our friends and neighbours in Bowthorpe a Happy, Joyful and Peaceful Christmas and send our Best Wishes for the New Year. Bye until next year! Margaret 18

Hello Everyone,

BRADECROFT

Well, the weather has turned much colder The shops are full of Christmas things, getting people to spend. The children dont seem to understand that money dont grow on trees. The TV adverts dont help, they offer loans, so you pay later. Sounds OK till you start to pay back, and every week food costs rise, fuel prices rise, but youre still having to pay for xmas stuff. We here at Bradecroft are looking forward to our Christmas dinner, and entertainment after. We have talked over next years outings and find we have to make a few changes, nothing drastic. We had a Beatle Drive here on the 16th November. I was unable to go but I think everyone enjoyed it. I would just like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year, from all at Bradecroft. Till next time take care. from Pat

ACORN FELLOWSHIP FOR THE OVER 50s Mondays 2.30 Bowthorpe Church

Bowthorpe through the years a changing landscape Many landscapes and habitats have suffered from land use change, and these areas vary with intensity of their use, and therefore their impact on biodiversity. This is true of our little area of Norfolk, where there has been massive changes within our landscape over the years. If you look on historic maps (see below right, Fig.1) you can see that most of the area where we now live is under agriculture, and was no doubt under management by order of the residents of Bowthorpe Hall. It appears that land use had not changed much over the following decades, and appears to be very much under agriculture in the1940s, while in the surrounding areas a number of small housing estates start to appear. These include the estate just east of what we now call Clover Hill by the Larkman, and many just north of Dereham Road. But, by the time we get into the 1980s, there has been much development, which includes 1000s of homes in the area of Clover Hill and Chapel Break. It was at this time, that the first of the Bawburgh lakes was created, and was opened up to anglers in 1988, for pike fishing. At this point in 1988, the road infra-structure had just been created for Three Score, and there were no houses as yet on the map for 1988. But, of course this area is now well developed and providing homes for 100s of families. Now, our area in Bowthorpe is clearly a well developed one, and we now have few areas which we could call natural. So the few areas we have are valuable and they include Bowthorpe Local Nature Reserve, which is a wetland reserve, and the fields just north of it heading towards Bunkers Hill. While these areas have not been developed, as yet, they still have been heavily managed over the years. Many of us will have noticed the management on the wetland reserve in the past few years, which included the digging and widening of the pond and ditch system of the marsh. These sites have to be managed in this way in order to maintain water levels and biodiversity value. While many of us have noticed this management, it is a little harder to notice what land use changes have happened on the fields. Well, as I said before they were once under agriculture, but have since been left to scrub up. However, they are still being managed in sorts by the tethered horses, which do help suppress the scrub invasion, creating a dynamic landscape of grass and scrub, which is so valuable for many birds. You can also see many flowering plants, which provide a bounty of nectar and pollen sources for many bees, which Im sure, are admired by many. But, less admired, mainly because of their secrecy, is the grass snake, which may be overlooked as they bask in the grass out of sight. They no doubt use the scrub as a place in which to seek refuge from potential danger, such as us! Other forces on the site include disturbance by walkers and motorcyclists, which create the bare areas of ground for many insects, which I have discussed in a previous article. I hope you can appreciate what a dynamic, changing landscape we live in, and what few wild spots we now have left. They should be appreciated

Before the world began


Before the world began I had you written on my heart. Before the world began I love you. The pain and the destruction, which have clouded up your view, Can't overcome the seed of love, Which I have placed in you. I know you feel so dirty, I know you feel so bad, The product of a messed up world, Who never could be planned, But behind the wall of darkness, The fear you learnt so soon, My love was placed inside your heart, And I have chosen you. You don't deserve the anger You don't deserve the pain For the shame your heart is feeling, You never can be blamed. The scars the world has brought to you, Can never change My love. You are My child You are My daughter. I love you.

I planned your birth before the beginning of all time, The gentle breath of life and love, The joy in what I've made You are not bad you are not dirty for the stains the world has made. You are My child, You are My daughter. I love you. You are My child, You are My daughter. I love you. Copyright Helen Blake, 2012

DRAWINGS BY LEE CARRUTHERS. A year ago Lee thought about entering the Clover Hill Arts Festival, but didnt think he was good enough. This year he took the plunge and enteredand won first prize in the Painting and Drawing category. One of the judges was so impressed with Lees work that she has encouraged him to take his drawings to an Art Centre.in the city where they are likely to buy them for display in the gallery. As a pupil at Saint Michaels school 21 years ago Lee had some drawings published on the school page of Bowthorpe News. Now he has done 2 drawings specially for this Christmas edition (see back page), and a neighbour has provided a hand-made Get Well card he received from Lee recently. Well be hearing more from this young man in future issues, but meanwhile if anyone is interested in having their work illustrated, or commissioning personalised greeting cards, why not contact Lee on 07884196934.

First make the syrup - put all of the syrup ingredients into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 6 - 8 minutes and allow to cool. Make the cake. Pre heat oven to 180C, 350F or as mark 4 Measure all of the dry ingredients and mix in a bowl. Put a third of the milk into a large pan with the sugar and butter, warm until the butter is completely melted, remove from heat and add the remaining milk. Pour the dry ingredients into the milk mixture and stir thoroughly.

The Feast of Eid Al Adha was kept on October 26th The Story of Eid Al Adha - The Feast of Sacrificetells how the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) was willing to sacrifice his beloved son in obedience to God, and how his son was saved from death. Since this day Muslims all around the world celebrate The Feast of Sacrifice by sharing the meat of a sheep or goat with their family, their neighbours and they give a third to charity or to those who cannot afford an animal. It is a celebration where families get together to eat and exchange gifts and to remember the sacrifice that the Prophet Ibrahim was willing to make. Hajira Ben Moussa 27
