Alan and Evelyn Guard have their first stay at Henlow Grange see guest comments from TSoHG below — Evelyn comments that at this point there was only space for 32 guests at a time not the capacity it has in There were only thirty-two guests then, compared with plus. We love Henlow because it makes us feel at home. We have a photograph of ourselves with Jimmy Savile on our sitting room wall. Someone recommended that I should go there because I had a lot of worry because of my personal life. In Wilson published a White Paper on Defence. Henlow Grange is doing rather well with celebrity support and Joe Costigan is now in his mid 50s and preparing a proposal for Dornier, a company famous for producing flying-boats, who were designing an amphibious flying boat for which they needed a retractable undercarriage so that it could come up on land. It was my life and I could not give it up. Then suddenly without warning that world crashed about my ears.

Sir Richard Weston – The founder of the Wey Navigation, Weston was an agricultural reformer who introduced revolutionary new land management practices that were to transform British farming. Owner of Sutton Place near Guildford, Weston was to build the canal after his experimentation with controlled flooding of pastures to boost hay yields. Weston is credited with introducing white clover and turnips into Britain.
White clover is a protein rich fodder crop for cattle that has the added benefit of replacing nitrogen into the soil.

A thought suddenly springs to mind: So a seasonal move to cold weather tyres is becoming increasingly popular, but most of us have little idea of their effectiveness.
Before the chilly conditions begin, we decided to call on someone with relevant recent experience. Lee Meredith, who swapped England for Norway is now used to taking to the wheel in freezing conditions. Lee, who works in the oil industry, drives a Kia Sportage. The front-wheel drive model dons winter tyres when the temperature, inevitably, drops. They are good at gripping cold, damp roads, below about 7C.
Emergency services, utility companies, delivery firms and many company car fleets are adopting a cold weather tyre policy. British Gas is taking a different tack by fitting Michelin CrossClimate tyres to its fleet of 13, vans rather than employing seasonal tyre-swaps. The CrossClimate is said to offer the benefits of a summer tyre for dry or wet braking, total mileage and energy efficiency, while boasting the traction and braking performance of a winter tyre on cold and snow-covered roads.

Sir Sydney was the principal designer of Hawker Aircraft Limited, whose most valuable contribution to history was the Hurricane fighter, which effectively saved the free world on two occasions. The house was known as Carradale when Sir Sydney Camm lived there from until his death in He was born in Windsor in , the eldest of 12 children, and earned a scholarship and free clothing in order to attain education until the age of 15 before he became an apprentice engineer. His skills were soon spotted, and he progressed rapidly to the design office, where he would serve out the war.
Hawker Engineering — the firm built from the ashes of the Sopwith company at its original factory in Canbury Park Road, Kingston.

If the Olympics has taught me one thing it is that there is a lot of confusion about how to use both Oyster and a paper ticket on a journey from outside London. Other potentially useful stations are just one stop outside the Oyster area eg Epsom or Potters Bar. When you want to use a Travelcard on Oyster A travelcard on Oyster is exactly the same as a travelcard on paper. There is no penalty for not touching in or out providing the whole journey on the Oyster card is within the zones covered by the travelcard.
There is also no longer a requirement for the train to stop where you switch from one ticket to another from Oct 1st All you need to ensure is that the tickets cover the whole journey. If your paper ticket is between two named stations then one of them must be within the outer zone of your travelcard or a dual zoned station with one zone covered.
If your paper ticket is to a boundary zone or includes zones itself then the zones must be adjacent. As examples, the following are all valid with a zone travelcard on the Oyster card:

We have been able to make significant improvements to playing surfaces and have been working hard at thinning out rough and refining the cut surfaces.
We have been using it as a feeder vessel for top dressing greens and tees to speed up the process, and it has been a life saver.

With the intrusive sound of the main six-lane arterial A3 route from London to Portsmouth thundering in the background, it is impossible to detach yourself from the hubbub of the modern world along the stretch of canal from Stoke Mill and on towards Stoke Lock. The Slyfield Transfer Station, as it is officially and rather grandly referred to, handles huge volumes of waste each year. The site, which is operated by a private company on behalf of the county council, received an average , tonnes of non-recyclable waste delivered as almost 10, truckloads.
The plant over the same period processed 22, tonnes for recycling. Stoke Park lies on the left bank of the river, and is hilly and prettily wooded. At Stoke Mill we came to our last lock before Guildford: TQ – rise of 6ft 9in 2. The scheme, which became widely adopted throughout the country, overcame the problems faced by farmers who struggled to feed their animals during winter.
The short channel behind the lock cottage is thought to be a remnant of the flowing river. The current lock, that was opened in , has a large grey dressed stone incorporated into the structure which was brought here from Henry VIIIs palace at Oatlands near Weybridge after it had been demolished in This was a common practice of the time as building materials were extremely expensive and most of the locks have materials sourced in the same way, and quite commonly Tudor bricks.

Hundreds of dates to choose from with Dukes of Daisy Never would I ever have thought that one day I would not only consider using, but actually be happy that I decided to use an escort dating service. To be honest, I never expected to actually get divorced which is a little strange considering that I thought about it pretty much all the time. Then, at 35, life took care of the details for me… as it tends to do and I found myself thrown in the world of divorce, lawyers, and constant turmoil.

While theft and fraud are almost everyday crimes, some show a willingness to take advantage of the trust given to them by defrauding their loved ones or show disdain for those who give them a chance by stealing from employers.
Darker yet, some twist sacred relationships, whether out of jealousy, callousness or the desire to feel powerful. The following is a round-up of some of the most notable examples of people taking advantage of positions of trust or power seen during the past few years. Smith stole the money from her mum between March and January and being entrusted to oversee her care and finances. The theft was found out after Kathleen Smith was visited by another woman in December who found her unhealthy state, the state of the house and bank statements showing she was overdrawn.
After the matter was reported to social services, police launched an investigation and arrested Smith. Kent Police She pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position and was sentenced to 21 months in prison at Canterbury Crown Court on Monday, March Investigating officer, detective constable Rebecca Thomas, said: He said that he stole from the club as his financial career was “grinding to a standstill”.
Sentencing, District Judge Justin Barron: Grube was one of only two employees who had access to the accounts and admitted transferring the money on March 6, , while his colleague was on holiday. When his colleague noticed the money was missing, he reported it to management staff and Gruber admitted the theft.
Gruber was initially given a conditional caution on the basis he would pay the money back but the matter was brought to court when he found himself unable to do so.
