Tour de Sands latest


It’s just 3 weeks until an army of about 70 cyclists set off from Easton on the Hill on Saturday April 22nd to take part in our epic “E2E” ride, from Easton on the Hill to Elviria in Spain.


Jerry Watson will be riding all 1600 miles with 3 friends all the way, and will be joined by the rest of the group on the first day and in “legs” along the way through France and Spain.


Many villagers have taken up cycling and are in training for this major challenge in honour of the much missed Sandra Watson. We will be relaying Sandra’s own bike all the way, with family, friends, and neighbours of Sandra’s taking turns to have the honour of riding her bike.




If you haven’t been approached by one of the riders yet, please consider donating to the Tour de Sands Charity, which will support St Barnabas Hospice and Lymphoedema Support Network.

 

Go to https://www.tourdesands.com  where there's more information on the Charity, the E2E ride, and how to donate.


We're also "live" on Twitter and Facebook now - so if you are of a Social Media persuasion, please find us, share us, like us, retweet us, etc, and help get the world out.




We’re also planning a big send-off party; the “Carbs before Marbs” Party is on the Friday 21st April from 7.00pm.


We hope to see as many people as possible there, carbo landing ready for the Grand Depart the following day. Alex will serve a 3 pasta buffet plus salad, and tickets are £12.00, of which 50% will go to the Charity thanks to Alex's generosity. Tickets are available from the Blue Bell, the Village shop, or Tim Nicol at 16 Church Street.


Special Polo Shirts and Water bottles will be on sale and there will be several opportunities to support the Charity while having a fun evening.

 

If you can’t join us on the ride itself, here’s a couple of options:




Any queries, offers of help and support, contact me - and come and see the spectacular send-off and  “Grand Depart” at 10.00 on Saturday April 22nd at the Blue Bell.

 

Thanks

Support for Sue


Sue van Silver is a local award winning wildlife artist who has been selected by Journey to the Heart of the Tiger, in conjunction with Wildlife Conservation India.


Sue is travelling with two of the foremost tiger conservationists in the world to four private tiger reserves to film and sketch these magnificent animals. The resultant pictures and prints will then be sold to generate funds which will be used to raise worldwide awareness of the plight of tigers and the threat to their environment. 


Although Sue has been selected to go to India because of the charitable involvement she must fund half of her overall costs, hence she needs to raise £3,000. She is therefore selling some of her works and you can see them on display in the Stamford Masonic Centre. All are for sale, 75% of the proceeds will go towards her costs and 25% will be donated by Sue to this amazing cause.


Less than 4,000 tigers are left in the wild with more in captivity in Texas than living wild in Asia. Human conflict and space for tigers is a massive issue. People cause the problem but people must find the solution. Projects like Wildsave have had huge success and have been instrumental in rebuilding trust among people. 7,500 families have been assisted, 2,500 of which have received a total of $1,000,000 in compensation. This money helps them build a new life with access to schools, hospitals and education. Saving the Tiger is much more than just one species, it is about saving and protecting entire eco-systems.

       

Sue is putting on a fundraising function at the Stamford Masonic Centre, (white door, rear left Scotgate car park) on Sunday 12th November 2017 from 7-9pm. She will give a short (very) talk on her trip and a short (longer) demonstration of her pastel skills. There will be a bar and free nibbles/snacks along with items for sale such as cards, prints, original artwork, and maybe more!


Do please come along, bring your friends, and feel free to support this amazing cause.


If you can’t make it but would still like to help, call Sue on 01780 756486.

Christmas Card Amnesty - for Tour de Sands


It's that time of year again when I expect we all start to think about sending Christmas Cards. Digging out last year's list, agonising about who to delete and who to add this year, and then laboriously writing, addressing, and distributing or posting them. At least that's how it feels in our house.


Village Christmas cards can be an even more challenging "game of swaps"- who to send to, who not to, and how to avoid that embarrassing feeling when you get one from someone you haven't put on your list. Do you do the obvious last minute addition, or tough it out and leave them off the list? Such agonising social tension!


Now imagine how it feels for someone who has suffered a bereavement in the past year or two- not just difficult, but distressing too.


So, following last year’s success, we thought we’d repeat the Christmas Card Amnesty for Easton. Instead of sending local cards to fellow villagers, put your name on a list of well wishers that will be published via the "What's on the Hill" email list and on a poster in a prominent window.  For a minimum donation of £10, your name will be added to the list that wishes everyone in Easton on the Hill a Happy Christmas and makes it clear that you won't be sending local (village) cards this year.


I hope those of you who want to take part in this will again agree that the most appropriate Charity to benefit from this is 'Tour de Sands', in memory of Sandra Watson. The Charity will distribute funds to Lymphodema Support and St Barnabas Hospice. Together with Jerry Watson and Karl Chapman, I am a Trustee, and will happily account for all donations. You can pay via Paypal (at no additional cost to you). Just get your credit card out and go to: https://www.paypal.me/timtourdesands I will happily account for all donations.

Alternatively just drop your cash in to me at 16 Church Street, with your name. No additional message is needed or will be published.


This is in no way intended to discourage those who prefer to send real cards from doing so, but please make your choice - village cards as usual or join the Amnesty for Tour de Sands by December 17th.


Either way, we will all find our own way to wish one another a Merry Christmas.


Compliments of the Season,


Tim Nicol

You may be aware that 16 October 2017 was the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF), ‘Restart a Heart Day.
Breakfast TV featured an item of a father who was saved by his son putting into practise CPR techniques. On its website it featured a story of a sister who went into cardiac arrest at her sister’s wedding and was saved due to people in attendance having learned the emergency lifesaving skills of CPR. Please see attached link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41569398
BHF was aiming to beat it’s 2016 event by training more than 150,000 people in the UK in life saving skills. It achieved that goal and indeed as the caption above shows it trained 1.2 million people in 2017 in association with Heartsart Schemes up and down the UK.
Heartstart Oundle was involved in that programme in providing training courses at Oundle Surgery, numerous villages, Price William School and at the Wharfe Oundle.
There are many more people out there who should learn the very important Emergency Life Support skills which can save lives.
Heartstart Oundle wants to reach these people and to arrange to get them on a course in 2018.
We would like your help in promoting our voluntary services to the residents of Oundle, local villagers and members of sports and social clubs through your publication.
I am attaching an Article promoting the courses we provide and why they are needed. I will be grateful if you will please include the article, in whole or in part as you see fit in your next publication.
Please let me know if you would like any further information.
 
Kind regards
