    one notices that an unusual landmark has disappeared -the burnt tree sculpture near the junction with La Rue desFriquettes, which has been succumbed to “lateralpersuasion”. Whether this has been effected by naturaldegradation or with the assistance of miscreants remainsa mystery?

  • Cara's family has lived in La Porte for 150 years.However, her father, Mervyn, was working in Englandwhen Cara was born and her early years were spent inEngland and in Jersey before the family returned here forgood in 1968. Mervyn met Sheila, his wife, in England andthey married there in 1949. Cara has two sisters, Frances,who lives in New Zealand and Nicolette who lives inLondon though they are both frequent visitors back hometo Jersey. Cara attended Jersey High School and JerseyCollege for Girls before taking a secretarial course atHighlands College. Her first job was at the HousingDepartment and interestingly, after many other posts bothin London and in Jersey, it is to the Housing Departmentthat Cara has returned. Cara was an enthusiastichorsewoman but a serious accident in 1980 necessitatedtreatment in London and while she was there sheworked for entertainment lawyers and studied forthe Legal Executive Part 1 exams. She returned toJersey in 1992 but it would be another eight yearsbefore she met John at work in a Trust Company.Since returning to Jersey Cara has been involvedwith the Sea Cadets , La Société Jersiaise, TheIsland Singers, St Saviour's Church, clearing LaJardin Des Buttes and La Cloche. Thus she is wellknown within the Parish and the Island.

    John Miller is a Scot who was born in Perth. Hecame to Jersey in 1988 to work for Channel TV asan accountant. He moved on in time to posts infinance and met Cara through one of these in 2000.They share a mutual interest in Classic Cars and

    Cara Billot is a member of a well known St Saviour family. Moreover, sheis also an important member of the La Cloche Team. Thus we were allabsolutely thrilled when her long time friend John Miller, popped thequestion with impeccable timing on December 16th.

    Cara Billot and John Miller

    own up to having a number of these between them housed in different parts ofthe Island. Together, they enjoy taking part in Classic Car events in France aswell as in Jersey. John spends much of his leisure time rebuilding cars,especially Ford cars from the 1930's onwards. John still has family in Scotlandin the shape of his mother and his two sons and three grandchildren as well asa daughter in Australia who is returning to Scotland to be married later thisyear. However, after twenty-five years in Jersey he himself is well rooted here.

    Cara had a brush with serious illness earlier in 2012 and we missed herfrom the La Cloche Team while she underwent treatment. With the end of thisin sight in December John took Cara out to L'Etacq in a hailstorm and with thethunder crashing and the lightning flashing he proposed- in the car-not on thebeach as intended!

    La Cloche offers its heartiest congratulations to John and Cara. We wishthem every happiness for their future together here in St Saviour.Angela Swindell

    Grainville School has recently launched a joint venture withJersey College for Girls known as The EntrepreneurshipChallenge 2013. It is funded and supported by Ogiers,Barclays Wealth, Jersey Telecom and Ernst and Young.Students had to form teams of between 2-6 and submittheir entrepreneurial idea of how to use an initialinvestment of £100, to trade over 8 weeks. HeadteacherJohn McGuinness and Business Studies Teacher Jo Carrollthen selected the lucky 10 teams. On January 31st 2013,the teams met their mentors from one of the foursupporting companies at The Pomme d’Or hotel andconsolidated their ideas and carried out market research.They are now trading their company until the end of March, they willbe judged by a school and corporate partner panel in April and finalwinners announced at the awards ceremony in May. Teams will bejudged on profit maximisation, community impact and team work. Students have come up with many different ideas for their businessventures including organising concerts, cake sales, jewellery making,

    Year 10 students at Grainville School spent aweek fundraising in aid of Jersey Hospice Careat the end of January. Many activities ranthroughout the week culminating in a non-uniform day. Students were given responsibilityto come up with ideas, advertise, organise andrun events to raise money for such a vitalcharity in the Jersey Community. The weekincluded a blindfolded guess the gunge, a trioof eating challenges, a penalty shoot out andeven a gunging of a teacher. Year 10 studentsalso challenged their teachers to a netballmatch where the teachers just got the better ofthem! In total over £1000 was raised adding tothe impressive £57,000 the school has raisedfor charity over the past 3 years.

    James Scott, Head of Year 10 said“Grainville places such a high importance ofgiving students the opportunity to raise fundsand support the local charities in the JerseyCommunity. Our aim for next week is not onlyto raise as much money as possible but to alsoraise pupil awareness of Jersey Hospice Careand the outstanding work they do within ourlocal community. In addition, giving students theresponsibility to run and organise weeks suchas this also equips them with important skillsthey can use in the future.”

    Grainville School’s localcommunity were once againtreated to a 3 course mealknown as the annual “ValentinesMeal”. Year 11 students andstaff prepared vegetable soupwith heart shaped croutons,beef casserole and Victoriasponge for over 100parishioners. The meal wasserved by year 11 students andthe night also involved somemusical entertainment providedby Grainville students. Theevening culminated in a raffleand the now traditional singingof “We’ll Meet Again” and“Beautiful Jersey”. This is a keyevent in Grainville’s Calendarwhere students get theopportunity to give somethingback to the school’s community.

    selling flowers, organising dance lessons, as well as creatingcustomised mugs and t-shirts. Although any profit which thestudents make is theirs to keep many of the teams have decided togive a proportion, or in one case, all of their profits to charity. Thisshows how students at Grainville School care for and value their localcommunity.

    News fromGrainville School

  • What do the Copps,Champions and Jolinshave in common? They were the three families who dominatedbrick making in St Saviour. At one time,there were twenty-four brickfields in theIsland, with a concentration in Mont aL’Abbe and St Saviour.

    A load ofold bricks?

    The heyday of the industry was in the nineteenth century, althoughthe last known brickfield carried on until the early 1950’s and was atJ.W. Huelin’s at Five Oaks(now the Normans’ site).

    We start with Southview, operated by the Copps. It wasworked from the 1890’s to 1914. It seems Southview isthe house now known as Sunnydene, - the big house onthe corner of La Grande Route de St Martin and theMaufant Road. For years there was a sign and decorativebrick work on the house gable (Maufant Road side). Thesign referred to the Copp family but is now painted over.

    The excavated brickfield (or more properly, clayfield)is just past Sunnydene up the Maufant Road. Like a lot

    Below and right: Kiln chimney visible atMaufant compared to the same view today

  • Spring2013 St Saviour Parish Magazine p9

    of former brickfields (actually clay fields) it can be recognisedbecause it is lower than the road and, even though a small housingestate has now been built, there is clear evidence of a large hole.Apparently, the base of the kiln could be seen up until 1980.

    The other major brickfield was found at Five Oaks, and wasowned by the Champion family. They also had major brickfields atMont a L’Abbe, just past the Motor Mall site going in the Towndirection.

    One of the clayfields for the Five Oak’s brickfield was on the sitenow occupied by the JEP, next to the then Le Geyt Farm. Olderreaders will recall that, before the JEP arrived the site consisted of alarge hole. Apparently there was also a large excavated hole on thenow Norman’s site which was used in later years as a rubbish dump,accessed from Rue a la Dame.

    Mr. Champion built and occupied Aylesbury House in Five Oaksand was also famous for building the Troglodyte Caves - a famousnineteenth century tourist attraction to be found on what is now ClosPaumelle Estate.

    The other major yard was found, unsurprisingly, in Old BrickfieldLane, Longueville. Look to the left at the small estate opposite theworkshops of Derek Warwick. It was owned by the Jolins who hadthe dubious distinction of having a son, Daniel, who killed his father,the owner, with a brickbat and was the last person to be publicallyhanged at Gallows Hill, Westmount.

    There were also brickfields at Croix Besnard but little furtherinformation is available. Why did brickmaking boom and what led toits demise? The massive programme of fortification building in theNapoleonic Wars undoubtedly contributed as did the growth in thetown following large scale immigration in the early to mid nineteenth

    century. The Island’s trade with Gaspé and Newfoundland in NorthAmerica provided another use for bricks. Ships came with cod forthe Island and Europe and left with bricks as ballast. Bricks for fish!If you want evidence of Jersey brick houses and structures you willfind them in the Gaspé and Newfoundland as well as Jersey.

    The last major building to be built of brick was the ForumCinema. If you want to see one of the last major examples standing,go to the Parcels Office of the Post Office in Commercial Streetwhere there are large walls built of Jersey brick. It was the customfor the brickyards to stamp their names on the bricks but there areno names visible at the Post Office building. Perhaps these brickswere laid with the names facing inwards or in nooks and cranniesnot open to public view.

    Why did the industry decline? There were changes to buildingmethods, cheaper bricks could be imported from England and theclayfields became exhausted. Because of subsequent building, theevidence of this once prolific industry has largely disappeared.

    I am indebted to Bob and Alan Copp and to Graham Sty (of theChampion family) for their help as well as the Société Library. Ifyou have any more information or wish to correct anythingcontact me at [email protected]

    It was actually started in 1857, when two Jersey ladies becameconcerned about the welfare of a poor, blind woman and placed herin the care of a widow. Two more poor women followed shortly afterand funds were required for their maintenance. Money was raisedthrough a bazaar and in 1860 a Committee was formed to supervisethe distribution of the funds. By 1861 there were 25 women, andthe House was in Regent Road, StHelier. The ladies were expected tobe well enough to make their ownbeds ‘and the like’, yet in 1878 oneresident was aged 102. Money hadbeen received from legacies, and in1884 the Home purchased thelarger premises of Regent Villa, 17 Regent Road.

    In 1910 each lady was paying 3/- toward their weeklymaintenance, and this had been raised to 10/6d by 1939. In 1947the charity became incorporated as the ‘Home for Infirm and AgedWomen’, which was approved by the States of Jersey and confirmedby His Majesty (King George VI) in Council. By then electricity hadbeen installed in the Home, followed by radio and a gas heater.By 1963 the residents had again outgrown their premises, andGlanville in St Marks Road was purchased. There was centralheating, and most ladies had their own room with hot water. Theadjacent house was bought shortlyafterwards, allowing more bedrooms andbathrooms to be built.

    By 1995 further alterations were requiredto keep in line with modern demands, andbedrooms were converted to become ensuite. By now, domestic, care and nursingstaff were employed, so the ladies no longer‘have to make their own bed’ although theHome is registered to provide residentialcare only and it is not possible to provide fullnursing care for any length of time. In 2010 Their Royal Highnesses the Earl andCountess of Wessex visited the home. Theyspoke individually to all the residents, staffand guests and unveiled a plaque tocommemorate the visit and to celebrate the150th Anniversary of the founding of theHome.

    A conservatory was built and the patioenlarged so that residents could sit outsideand enjoy the beautiful gardens surroundingthe Home. Part of the finance for this camefrom the annual ITEX Round Island walk, theAssociation of Jersey Charities andbenefactors.

    Glanville as a Home providing care for elderly ladies,has been in continuous existence since 1860, and isbelieved to be the oldest establishment of its kind inBritain, and possibly in Europe.

    Glanville150 years of history

    We are fortunate that the wives of our Lieutenant Governors haveagreed to be Patrons of the Home. Mrs Valerie Ridgway opened thenew lift in 2007 and visited the Home on several occasions,particularly to mark the 100th birthday of Mrs Allenett and MissLuce. We are delighted that Lady McColl has agreed to be our

    Patron and has visited the Home.In 2012 Mrs Andrea Hughes was appointed

    Manager of the Home. She has introduced many newactivities including visits to the theatre, exerciseclasses, drives and outings for afternoon tea, andcommunion once a month taken by Rev Martin Shea.

    Although most of our residents come to us forlong term care we also welcome ladies to stay for awhile for respite care, and a number have decided to

    take up residence after a spell of such care.The President and Committee are very appreciative of the fact thatthe home has been in existence for so long, much modernised inequipment, facilities, and care, but still run on very similar principles.

    We still keep to the precepts of ourpredecessors but with modern demands forfacilities and care we are continually upgradingour facilities and constantly fund raising tomanage this. We welcome visitors andpossible new residents to the home to lookaround. Do contact our Manager to make anappointment to ensure someone is free totake you around. We very much hope that weshall be able to continue to care forgenerations of older ladies for many years.

Locally, the JerseyWomen’s Refuge operates 365 days, 24 hours a day and is asafe house where women can come to if they experiencedomestic abuse. The school’s international charity, EcceHomo is a Christian charity that helps the poor offeringpractical and spiritual support.

  • 200 metres from La Route de Maufant it turns through 90 degrees to the right andcuts across La Rue du Sacrament at the single location where there exists a slight

    dog-leg in this otherwise straight section of roadway (photo 1). It thenmeanders northwards across the fields and traverses La Rue de La Vignette

    ( photo 2 looking east , (photo 3) looking west) at a point approx.halfway between La Route de Maufant and La Rue du Hucquet (St

    Martin) and emerges onto La Rue de la Maitrerie approx. 150 metresto the East of La Route de Maufant (photo 4).

    (Some maps show the Parish boundary following the centre lineof La Rue de la Maitrerie, in actual fact none of that road comesunder the jurisdiction of our Parish.)

    junction (photo 5). Here the boundary moves across the exiting roadso that La Route de Maufant is wholly in St Saviour (photo 6).Travelling northwards one suddenly notices a change in thecomposition of the tarmac surface at the left turn into La PieceMauger (photo 7). This point marks the northernmost extremity ofthe Parish of St, Saviour and it is of interest to note that should theParish boundary continue northwards for another ½ mile then the

    Parish of St Saviourwould actually bisectthe Island in a south/north direction fromthe Dicq slipway tothe pronounced inletnear La Tete desHougues in Trinity.(However, thankfullythis is not the case;just imagine theramifications of such aconjecture if overseenby modern politics.Ed. Note.)

    Travelling along LaRue de La PieceMauger which is inTrinity the boundarytakes a sharp lefthand turn to the

    south. However if onecontinues along to thejunction with La Rue deDielament (Trinity) and looksacross to the right there arefour properties and a fieldforming a separate blockwhich is in the Parish of StSaviour (photo 8). Thehistorical reasoning for this is

    uncertain but one theory put forward is the regulation that theConnétable of a country Parish must reside in their own Parish and aformer incumbent of St Saviour dwelt just over the border - nothingthat a slight shift of land could not accommodate the ruling!

    Returning to the main boundary this runs through the fields to theright of La Rue de Dielamentuntil it reaches La Rue de laGuilleaumerie which itcrosses at its junction withLa Rue du Pont and headsdiagonally across the field toexit onto La Rue de laBoucterie directly oppositeLa Commune where anattractive and ornate parishboundary marker can beseen (photo 9). Below itand to the left a faded butlegible stone with P.L.M (LeMaistre?) and M.L.S. (LeSueur?) engraved in to thegranite is set into the wall(photo 10).The boundary then continuesdown the right hand side ofthe steeply inclined LaCommune to a place just

    short of the junction with La Rue de la Roulerie where the streamwhich feeds Grands Vaux Reservoir crosses and marks the actualboundary (photo 11).This stream meanders towards the reservoir following a route parallelto Mont de la Rosiere and exits through a wooded area to the rear ofthe property known as Paul Mill (photo 12 looking north / photo 13looking south). The boundary technically runs along the centre of thereservoir and exits at the dam at the lower end (photo 14) to followthe culvert which flows under Grands Vaux schoolgrounds and exits along the school wall (photo 15)to cross Les Grands Vaux. The future article in theseries will follow the boundary as it weaves its waythrough the urban conurbation of the formerNicholson Park towards Town Mills.

    Since the start of the so-calledSpring Term as I've travelledaround our schools, I've noticedthat there seem to be moremaladies [illnesses] around thisyear than last. It's not just that lesmousses sont afflyigis [thechildren are suffering] but thereare lots of sick teachers too. Somehead-teachers have been tearingtheir hair out to keep classesrunning!

    Of course it's quite normal tohave eune suée d'fraid [a cold] atthis time of year, but there's anawful lot of it about. Students havebeen blianc l'tou des dginnes[green around the gills – though inJèrriais it's white rather thangreen] when they are in theclassroom – not just fromforgetting homework...The girls inone class found it hilarious thatwhen you sneeze in Jèrriais, youdon't go “Atchoo!” but“Ètcheunme!” If someonesneezes, you should say “Quél'Bouôn Dgieu vouos bénisse!” [May the Good Lord bless you!].

    Later in the year, l'êtèrnueûthie [sneezing] may be a sign of lamaladie du fain [hay fever], but in winter it is more likely to be dueto eune ramée d'fraid [a heavy cold] or la grippe [influenza].While we might take des boulets [pills] to make us feel better, ifyou had the same problem a century ago, the recommended cure

    Par Tony Scott Warren

    As-tu la tête souos l'aile?Have you got your head under your wing? (Are you ill?)

    La Clioche Cratchie

    was du sitho d'colînmachon [snail syrup] –it makes me feel better just to know that I'mnot going to have to take it nowadays! However it was usually accompanied by dunièr dginne – gin with blackcurrants.

    Some of the other “cures” in the old daysare enough to turn you pale. If you had adeep cut, it was said that there was nothingbetter to seal it than la bra – pitch made frompine resin. However while the blood wasflowing, you were meant to staunch it withd's ithangnies [spiders' webs] or un tchiasdé p'tun [a wad of chewing-tobacco].

    People had to be able to recognise healingplants in the days before doctors wereavailable to all. Vervain – la vèrveine could beused in plasters to help speed a cure but wasalso good to cachi les chorchiers [driveaway witches] or pouor env'yer un sort [tosend a spell]; d's ortchies [nettles] were usedboth in infusions to cure bad blood, and assomething to be beaten with as a cure forback-ache – ouch!

    Finally, if you thought you had a coldcoming on, before going to bed you had toput your feet in eune petite toubée dg'ieaucaude, atout eune bouanne pouangnie

    d'moutarde d'dans [a little tub of hot water with a good handful ofmustard in it] and drink un bouan vèrre caud [a glass of well-sweetened boiling-hot rum or brandy]. Some people enjoyed this somuch that they could see a cold coming from a very long way off! Bouanne santé - Good health! À bétôt

    This issue we are going to find out a few things aboutROAD SAFETY. Even though the dark evenings aredisappearing there are still a lot of cars and lorries onour roads.

    Have a look at the picture on page 3 of the childrenfrom St Saviour’s School on a visit to our ParishChurch. You will see that they are all wearing yellowvests, this is to make them easily seen as they walkdown to the church from school and cross over thebusy road by the Parish Hall. Now look at this picturehere - it is the same group in the church but when thephotograph was taken the flash on the camera wasused. This is how a car driver clearly sees you in your reflective vestwhen lit up in their headlights at night or in dull and foggyweather.

    It shows you how good it is to wear the yellow reflectivestripes vest and it can prevent an injury to you.

    And remember that when walking along the footpath do notwalk near the kerb, you may trip and fall into the road. If you arewalking with an adult or a friend it is better to stay in single fileand NEVER step off the footpath into the road to pass somebody.

    When you want to cross a road if there is a lollipop stick person tohelp always cross with their help. If you are using a pelican crossing,the one with the button to press and the Red and Green man signsalways remember that you must not cross straight after you havepressed the button but must wait for the red man to turn green. Whenthe green man shows do not start to cross until you are sure that allthe cars and lorries have stopped and be careful in case a cyclistsuddenly comes from behind a stopped car As soon as the greenman starts to flash on and off you MUST NOT start to cross- thismeans that the cars are about to start to move.

    Try not to walk along a road where there is not a properfootpath. If you have to go down a road like this always walk onthe right hand side so that you are facing towards the traffic thatis coming towards you. The only time that you should walk withthe traffic behind you is when there is a sharp bend in the roadand you cannot see the cars coming- when this happens crossover and then back again once you have cleared the bend.

    Parents, we have a Road Safety Officer in Jersey and he canbe contacted at Police Headquarters if you have any concernsor wish advice on a road safety matter. (612222)

    How did you get on with your “bird spotting” trip inQueen’s Valley? If you did not see many different typesof birds it is worth going again. I went on the Sundayafter the last magazine was delivered and only saw 16different types. I went again at the end of Februaryand saw over 50, the best one being aGreat Spotted Woodpecker.

    His trip was part of the Jubilee Sailing TrustNorton Rose Sail The World Challenge, atwo-year voyage around the world tocelebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. Peter hadalways wanted to sail across the Atlantic,little knowing that he would be 60 plusbefore realising his dream!

    In October 2012, Peter travelled toSouthampton where he met fellow volunteercrew members and the permanent ship’scompany. He holds so many happymemories of that trip it is difficult to knowwhere to start.

    The ship sailed out of Southampton on21st October 2012 –Trafalgar Day. Sheheaded south and across the Bay of Biscayarriving in the Canaries two weeks later. “There was quite a stiff breeze during thatpart of the trip and some stimulating sailing,”he said.

    They stayed for a week in Las Palmasbefore setting off across the Atlantic to theUNESCO World Heritage islands ofFernando de Noronha, off Recife, in northernBrazil.

    The SE trade winds were perfect sailing weather for crossing theAtlantic: “We enjoyed the best sailing conditions I have experienced,and certainly better than expected,” he said.

    As they sailed towards the Equator, the Captain organised asweepstake competition to work out the time the ship would crossthe equator (Peter won coming within 5 minutes, although anothercrew member was also very close. CB) and most of the crew had togo through the initiation ceremony of ‘crossing the line’ according toNeptune’s Court.

    There were more than 40 people on board; the Captain was alady called Barbara Campbell, and the First Mate was a 6’ 4”Geordie. The Cook was a professional chef who had worked on theQE2.

    “He provided wonderful food whatever the weather and alwaysbaked a cake for special occasions like birthdays and specialcelebrations, such as St Andrew’s Day,” said Peter.

    Among the volunteer crew members there were two disabledRoyal Marines who had both been to Jersey with Holidays forHeroes. Each disabled person had a buddy to assist and help them;Peter’s buddy, Roger, was chief instructor at an outdoor adventurecentre.

    The Captain organised instruction for the crew teaching them therudiments of using a sextant and how to line up against the sun andhorizon. The crew were assigned to watches and mess duties i.e.four watches of 6 to 7 people who were on watch for four hours in

    Peter Hanning is no ordinary sailor. Having spent many happy hours upon the localbriny, he suddenly found himself with the opportunity of a lifetime – to sail across theAtlantic on board the Lord Nelson, a fabulous square rigger which belongs to TheJubilee Sailing Trust and offers sailing trips to able-bodied and disabled people.

    turn. When not on watch, people were catching up on sleep, ordoing their mess duties, washing, cleaning, etc.

    Plenty of marine life was seen actively chasing the ship, or justkeeping company. “There were minke whales, humpbacked whales,dolphins, flying fish; and plenty of birdlife too, such as boobies, andskuas,” he said.

    The Lord Nelson anchored overnight at the biggest coral reef inthe South Atlantic, an archipelago and designated Ramsar site calledParque Nacional Marinho dos Abrolhos, which lies 450 miles northof Rio.

    Special permission is needed before anyone is allowed to land onany one of the five islands. The Brazilian Navy maintain the areaand keep it clean and free from human marauders as it is home tosome of the richest range of marine life in the South Atlantic.

    As they were approaching Rio de Janeiro a thick fog developed,reducing visibility to a few feet, but the next day brought a return tohot sunshine and the warm welcome of the Brazilian people,especially the disabled Samba dance team who were such a featureof the closing ceremony of the London Paralympics of 2012.

    Sea voyages on the Lord Nelson, a frequent visitor to Jersey, areopen to able-bodied and disabled people and can offer anunforgettable experience whether for as little as a weekend, or, as inPeter’s case, a two-month sea voyage.More information about the Jubilee Sailing Trust can be

    We were invited to take part in the InterParish competitions and are now competingwith eight other parishes in the winter league.We believe several other parishes arecurrently forming groups to join the leaguewhich will take place during the summermonths.

    We do not have a home terrain at present,so we are currently ‘borrowing’ a terrain outside the pavilion inCoronation (Millbrook) Park, until we can obtain our ownParish terrain. Parish officials are currently looking into thepossibility of providing a ‘home’ terrain for us.

    The group “St Sauveur Petanque”was started over a year ago and nowhas fourteen regular players.

    Petanque in St Saviour

    We are a very sociable group who often follow the mornings play with lunchin various restaurants.

    If you are interested in playing or need more information you can contactGill Blampied on 626166 or email [email protected]

    That Welsh custom is a reminder to us in our veryindividualistic culture that Christian belief is ashared thing. Yes, our individual faith matters.However, it is greatly enriched by beingunderstood and experienced as part of thecorporate faith and belief of our local Christiancommunity and of the worldwide Church. This, Ithink, is one of the reasons why modern creedsbegin with the words "We believe" rather than "Ibelieve." There is also the advantage that at majorfestivals people, who for one reason or anotherhave lapsed from church attendance, can feelfree to try leaning a little on the faith of others.

    Wishing you all a joyful Easter,Anthony Swindell, Rector.

    Soon the church bells will be ringing forEaster. There is nothing as moving asreciting the Easter Anthems at thebeginning of the early service on Easterday. Having said this, I suspect that therewas something very exciting about thetradition in Radnorshire on the Welshborder of climbing the nearest mountainat daybreak on Easter morning to see thesun's rays dancing in joy at theResurrection. This would be done bycrowds of people.
