THE PARISH REGISTERS
19 November 2006 at St. Mary's, Offton. Kayla Kathleen NOBLE, second
daughter of Ian and Kim Noble of Somersham.
It is very satisfying that Offton Church serves to keep its link with
the Bowers family
Pauline Watkins, longtime resident of Flowton, who died on 4th
November 2006, aged 94 years. Her funeral took place on 13th November
in Flowton church, which was full of her family and many friends.
Joan Holly Plummer, longtime resident of Somersham, who died on
28th November 2006, aged 84 years. Her funeral took place on 11th December
in Somersham church, and the church was filled with family, friends, ex-pupils
and members of the youth club she used to run in Somersham.
Christine Sabin, who had only lived in Willisham a short while,
who died on 29th December 2006, aged 49 years. Her funeral took place
amongst family and friends, on January 9th 2007 in Somersham church and
then at Ipswich Crematorium.
they rest in peace
You may have noticed that the bus run by Carters of Capel St Mary no longer
comes through the village details about the replacement service
are on David Hales noticeboard and on the Church stall. There are
also copies for you to take from the table at the back of the church.
The replacement service involves contacting Hadleigh Community Transport
but it will link to a bus to take you right to the centre of Ipswich.
It looks well worth investigating.

hard at work maintaining the church and churchyard throughout the year

Somersham U 10s
Sunday 12th November,
Gainsborough Sports Centre:
Somersham assembled with s strong squad of ten lads all eager to take
on a Whitton side that had just pipped them to the runners-up spot at
their first tournament some months earlier.
Somersham made a confident start, passing the ball well and using the
large space down the flanks to their advantage; this enabled Somersham
to take a 3-0 lead at half time, thanks to two goals from Samuel Lucock
and one from Tom Sheern.
After the break Somersham stepped up a gear and were camped in the Whitton
half; two goals from Jack Barnes, one each from Charlie Warner and Andrew
Rutter made the final score Somersham 7 Whitton 0.
Sunday 26th November,
Somershams under 10s took a trip to the seaside, and under the watchful
eye of Captain Cotterell the crew gathered.
Game 1 saw the A team cast their nets first against a strong Shotley side.
With ten minutes gone, and Somershams defence all at sea, Shotley
took the lead; half time 1-0.
The second half saw Somersham batter the oppositions defence but
it was to no avail; final score Shotley 1 Somersham0.
Next it was the turn of the B teams; Shotley were in buoyant mood and
took an early lead, but Somersham were determined to turn the tide and
two fine goals from Jack and Samuel left the Shotley defence marooned.
With the game drawing to a close Shotley equalized, but Somersham were
not sunk and another fine run from Samuel gave Thomas the bait to launch
home the winner; final score - Shotley 2 Somersham 3

DanceEast Director Assis Carreiro said: This is DanceEasts
seventh village tour and it promises of be one the highlights of our year.
digit01 gives children and their families the chance to experience world
class dance in a venue close to home which we hope will inspire them and
offer them a magical experience.
During the show, audiences will be taken on a fantasy journey through
a world where time and space is altered, to meet strange digital characters
and virtual personalities. The piece is inspired by Lewis Carrolls

November saw both
Somersham teams continuing in the same manner as for most of the season
so far. The first team won one of their four matches and the reserve team
saw another month pass without a win.
Then between the 2nd
and 9th of December there was another corporate reshuffle within the club.
For a number of personal reasons Derek Ottaway has had to call time (for
the moment) on his promising managerial career. All at the club understand
his decision and thank him for his time as manager of the reserve team.
Dereks assistant, Matty Whitton, has also had to take a step back
from the running of the reserves due to work reasons. Again thanks to
Matty from all at the club and hopefully both will be in a position to
manage again in the future. I am delighted to say that Derek has agreed
to continue in his role as Secretary so that the club is still being run
behind the scenes in the right way.
Derek and Matty stepping
down left a quandary for the club as to who might manage what! It was
decided that Quinny Warner would take over the reserve team with Keith
Lawrence continuing as manager of the first team with assistance from
me! Hopefully we will be able to see this season out with no further changes,
but Im making no firm predictions!!
The 1st Team
Saturday 11th November
Parkside United Div 3 (A) Lost 3-1
The management decided to try a new formation for this match. Unfortunately
Somersham conceded 2 soft goals in the first half due to teething problems
with this system. Parkside added a third in the second half and Dale Poole
scored a consolation.
Saturday 18th November
Sporting 87 Div 3 (H) Lost 4-0
I missed this game but have been told that this was Somershams best performance
of the season so far. Sporting 87 are a good team and Somershams failure
to take their chances cost them dearly again.
Saturday 25th November
Alstons Div 3 (H) Won 4-3
After beating Alstons 3-1 at their ground Somersham felt confident of
completing the double. Stef Nielsen and Dale Poole put Somersham into
the lead, but Alston fought back to level the match. In a stroke of managerial
genius, Quinny put the young Al Chester on up front, a move which paid
dividends with the youngster rifling home from 21 yards to restore Somershams
lead. Alstons equalized again, but Kieran Cotterell came up with the winner
to secure 3 much needed points and the double over Alstons.
Saturday 2nd December
Elmswell Div 3 (A) Lost 4-0
With a new goalkeeper, last seen heading for Bury, and an injury ravaged
side things werent ideal at the beginning of this match. Stef Nielsen
started between the posts until the keeper found the ground and that was
Somershams best part of the afternoon. Although the new keeper Bruce
had an outstanding game, Elmswell demolished Somersham in this match.
Saturday 9th December
Tacket St BBOB Div 3 (H) Won 5-1
This game heralded the beginning of the new management of the first team.
After a steady start Somersham found their feet and I believe were 2-0
up at half time, with goals from Dale Poole and Stef Nielsen. The second
half saw Somersham add to the lead before Tacket St scored to briefly
relight their belief in their chances, before the match was closed out.
The second half scorers were Kieran Cotterell, Stef and Adam English.
Saturday 16th December
Parkside United - Div 3 (H) Won 3-0
Again Somersham started steadily but a deflected own goal and towering
header from Jason Brame saw Somersham 2 up at half time. Dale Poole added
a third in the second half.
Saturday 23rd December
Albion Mills - Div 3 (H) Won 1-0
The last game before the Christmas break found a determined Albion Mills
at the playing field. Kieran Cotterell scored the valuable only goal to
leave Albion doubled and Somersham with another 3 points.
November and December
have seen the first team win more than they have lost and the self belief
I mentioned in the last notes is beginning to return to the players. The
3 wins on the trot at the end of the year seem, at time of writing, to
have galvanised the team. Lets hope that this change of fortune
will continue long into 2007!
Saturday 11th November
Tattingstone United Div 4 (H) Lost 4-1
Somershams closest rivals for bottom spot came out the victors with Neil
Meekings scoring a consolation goal.
Saturday 18th November
Great Blakenham Div 4 (H) Lost 2-1
Some pride was restored after going down 8-0 in the away fixture. Somersham
were unlucky not to gain their first point of the season and new signing
Martin Booth notched his first goal for the club.
Saturday 25th November
Saturday 2nd December
Walsham Le Willows A Div 4 (H) Lost 6-1
A strong Walsham team took the points in this fixture, but at least it
was no white wash, with Craig Fordham getting the home teams consolation.
Saturday 9th December
Tacket St BBOBHarpers Intersport Cup(A) Lost 2-1
Tacket St are a couple of divisions below the reserves, but were still
difficult opposition who wanted to progress to the next round. This was
Quinnys first game in charge of the team and he was pleased with
their performance. A few spurned chances cost Somersham the match with
Ben Hurrell scoring the only Somersham goal. The referee also disallowed
a late Somersham equaliser on the grounds that it would be too dark for
extra time! When youre at the bottom everything goes against you.
Saturday 16th December
Tattingstone United Div 4 (A) Lost 6-3
Somersham hoped for revenge in this fixture and it seemed revenge and
the first points of the season had been achieved with less than 10 minutes
left. Somersham lead 3-2 with goals from Lee Beckley, Martin Booth and
Craig Fordham. However, in a catastrophic final few minutes Somersham
conceded 4 times to the bewilderment of all concerned.
Saturday 23rd December
Ipswich Exiles Reserves Div 4 (A) Lost 4-2
Signs of an improvement to Somershams fortunes continued with them again
scoring more than one goal, through Martin Booth and Damon Crick, but
they still couldnt stop conceding.
Although, as 2006
closed the reserves had still not gained any points, there were signs
of improvement in the team. By all accounts a lot of the goals conceded
are through poor decisions made throughout the team and there are signs
that the goals scored column will improve a bit now. Quinny will endeavour
to the last to gain as many points as possible and I am expecting to report
the first points and first win for the reserves in my next notes.
The club have organised
a race night for 31st March at the village hall. Full details will be
on display around the village and within The Link. Please come and join
in with what is always a great night. Anybody wishing to sponsor a race
is more than welcome. Contact myself, Ray Smith, Dill Sillett or any member
of the club for further details.
As ever, let me be
the first to wish you a Happy Easter!
See you on Saturday!!!

Plan for Somersham
The last edition of the Link Newsletter contained a reply form relating
to the Somersham Emergency Plan. A few forms have been returned and it
is not too late to return yours. If you would like to offer help, or feel
you might be particularly vulnerable in the event of an emergency please
let us know.
Unfortunately due to technical problems it has not yet been possible to
add the Emergency Response Plan to the Parish Councils website,
but it is hoped this will be rectified shortly when you should be able
to view the plan on www.onesuffolk.co.uk/somershampc
The Parish Council elections will take place on 3rd May 2007. Nominations
forms will be available in early March either from the Returning Officer
at Mid Suffolk District Council, or the Parish Clerk. This is your opportunity
to become involved in the heart of the community and to influence the
future of Somersham. If you feel this is a role you would enjoy, then
you would be very welcome. The first step is to obtain and return the
nomination form. Further details on the election will appear in next months
The Parish Council has approved an increase in next years precept
from £11,000 in 2005/6 to £11,495 in 2007/8, which is in line
with Government recommendations for local authorities. The precept is
the income received by the Parish Council from its electorate which is
collected on our behalf by Mid Suffolk District Council as part of the
Council Tax. It is then paid to the Parish Council over two payments during
the year. From the precept payment the Parish Council is committed to
a long-term loan of £6500 per year, so the monies available to spend
in the community are currently under £5000.
The Parish Council aims to support as many local organisations and initiatives
as possible and is always pleased to consider requests for support.

On behalf of all the members of FOSS, may we wish you all a very Happy
As we begin 2007, we usually have one of our quieter months before starting
to arrange things for the children and the local community to raise much
needed funds for our school.
December is always a particularly busy time at the school and one of great
excitement for all the children. We had the traditional Christingle services
at Somersham Church which were well attended. After the evening service
we all returned to the school for some lovely mulled wine and some delicious
mince pies that were kindly baked by Leita Minns. We are sure that all
parents and grandparents etc will join us in congratulating ALL the children
and staff at the school for their wonderful production of Jack and
The Beanstalk which was performed from 11th to 14th December. Our
sincere thanks must go to all the staff who worked so hard in preparing
costumes and the backdrop for the pantomime as well as all their hard
work in training the children in a short period of time. The performances
were fantastic and we very much look forward to any future productions.
FOSS also purchased a Christmas present for each child at the school.
We have booked a disco for the children for Friday 23rd February at Somersham
Village Hall. Last year we had a beach party and this year we thought
the children may like to have a pyjama party!
We are also hoping to organise another Archive Film Evening for Friday
27th April. Negotiations are currently in progress and we hope to make
an announcement in next months Link magazine as to whether this evening
can go ahead and if it does, information about ticket sales etc.
Thank you to all those people that continue to send us the various tokens
from box tops or Tescos and Sainsburys vouchers etc. Can we remind you
that we still collect and recycle ink cartridges from printers and copiers,
as well as mobile telephones.
We will notify you of all our forthcoming events next month.
