There were no holidays. My father was a milkman before me and from when he went into the forces, he had only 3 days holiday. You worked Christmas Day and Boxing Day, and you could not go sick otherwise your book-keeping would be discovered. You did not retire — you worked till you died, and there was no commission or pay incentives. Our rent was 12s 6d a week and there wore no increases in wages at any time.
I started to help my father when I was 5 years of age and worked on the first round before school and, when I was 6, also worked from pm during the lunch break and sometimes in the evening. We never saw the people who owned the houses.
Two things happened; they stopped using cans and went over to bottles. Chance was finished, and the milkman was back on his basic pay. My milk float was tipped up by flying pickets. The milk went down the drain and I had to pay for it. The combine served the public by giving more hygienic milk in bottles, but it meant death to the milkman.
Many times on a hot summer day the milk would curdle in the churns because of the movement of the cart. I used to strain it through a piece of rag, otherwise I would have to pay for the milk. No one worried about hygiene. The only worry was to get rid of the milk!
Can anyone throw any light on this word?
The building is to be re-wired, and will certainly be closed from Jan 7-Feb 29 — longer if the work is not completed in that time. The point at which Hendon enters this tale is that the seeds from which the seedlings were raised were obtained by John Clark from cones of the Great Cedar of Hendon Place — the manor house of Hendon, later Tenterden Hall. The seedlings, when sold, were 5 years old, therefore the seeds were probably planted inat which time Hendon Place was in the occupancy of the Nicoll family.
If anyone has information on this subject, will they please let our Hon. The finds from them, sometimes spectacular and always interesting, have revealed the year story of the cathedral city, from Belgic oppidum to 20th c shopping centre for continental day-trippers.
The rescue unit, which is directed by Mr Tatton Brown, was set up inrather later than many similar units and thus less richly provided with Government funds. Instead about three-quarters of its income came from private sources, and a good deal of that from the developers who were currently rebuilding the city to cater for the tourist boom. The immediate environs of the city concern the Trust as well as Mr Tatton Brown showed in a slide of a rural gravel working with evidence of late bronze age, iron age and Roman occupation.
Within the city the Belgic levels were the earliest and in one of these, in what had been a muddy hollow in the former roadway, had been found the wheel marks of a chariot and the hoof prints of the horse that drew it.

It was a chariot, Mr. Tatton Brown argued, rather than a heavy cart, pointing out on his slide the shallowness and narrowness of the tracks. Page 6 The Belgic levels also revealed a substantial number of fine and rare coins, as well as more mundane evidence of the pre-Roman population in the form of the pits from which they extracted clay for pottery, their houses, tracks and roadways. The first Roman occupation was military, and effectively so — one ditch contained skeletal remains, marked by sword cuts, of men and horses, seeming to date from the Boudiccan rebellion.
In the more peaceful times that followed, Canterbury grew into a substantial Roman town. Its theatre and public baths were known and a huge temple court had had been traced, though the temple itself has yet to yield itself to the excavators. In Roman times those gaps were filled by wooden buildings, whose traces had been too insubstantial for earlier archaeologists to recover.
After the Romans abandoned the city in the 5th c it fell into the decay from which St Augustine revived it in the late 6th c. From around onwards, a picture of the whole of Canterbury could be reconstructed, with some streets surviving to the present day and still retaining their Anglo-Saxon names. Archaeology had revealed evidence of building practices — including the opportunist one of slipping an oyster shell under a timber to level it — and the perils of medieval life, in the form of a Black Death plague pit.
That brief opportunity enabled traces of the original crypt of the church built in by Archbishop Lanfranc to be revealed.
Its walls are 35 cms thick and it has a 14 cms thick concrete roof. It has a small airbrick near the top of one wall. When we arrived in it still had a metal escape hatch with a weaker brick wall behind it.
I am afraid we vandalised this escape hatch some years ago by constructing a narrow 55 cm entrance, using the hatch space as part of the entrance. Page 7 The rest of the brickwork and cement was incredibly difficult to demolish but I eventually managed to knock a doorway through and now use it for storing garden sundries.
There is a wooden door at the far end but this was very inconvenient for use as a normal entrance from the garden.

It was obviously designed for quick entry from our French windows. Julie Hollman seems to be in great form just one week ahead of her appearance in the European Cup Combined Events Super League; she won the long jump with ease.
Having won the high jump with 2. Failure to provide eight athletes — even if the match is won — means no progression to the next round and therefore a late or non-arrival by a competitor could wipe out the team.
Events will change to a certain extent from one round to the next and a negative point is that due to the time constraints the competition will not include a m or m. For the smaller outfits, getting athletes to come along to do just the one event, possibly not their speciality, to ensure that enough athletes made up the team was another problem.
Matt Douglas trebled up All this made things interesting for the team managers who had to scout around to fill out the teams.
But of course he made it, and after a ten-minute warm-up placed 2nd in the high hurdles, went straight to the high jump where he flopped over for to gain a single height and then lined up for the m. Considerably less than two minutes later Matt was allowed off duty for an hour before leading out the relay team!
It all made for a good training session though, and Matt was well pleased with his first in 15 years which resulted in a personal record by around 10 seconds.
She never quite broke away but had enough strength to ensure that nobody could get back to her. Vicky Goodwin had run in Manchester the previous night and tackled another m here while Helen Arbuthnot took care of both throws, but with such a depleted team the Belles cup run was over early. Set Osho tackled his first m of the season out of the blocks and just missed out on a win and then junior Luke Sargeant, drafted into the first team for the m, was delighted with his best ever time for yet another second place.
I first qualified in Australia in to teach learn to swim and coach competitive swimming. Before becoming a coach I worked as a packaging designer for 12 years but I decided to follow my passion for swimming. When did you start training to become an open water coach? I only started training this year.
I am mad for open water swimming and during my time pool coaching more and more people have wanted help with their open water skills.Barnet 2014 One Mile Club Champs - Race 3
The training was more of an extension of my own open water experiences. What did the open water coaching entail?
The course ran from April through to June and included a large amount of written work and studying. I am a swimming anorak and could bore you for hours! I love challenging myself and learning something new about the sport I love. Coaches should never stop learning. What do you think are the key differences between indoor coaching and open water coaching? There are a number of differences between pool coaching and open water coaching. The environments are very different.
Swimming pools are consistent: Open water venues can vary massively on an hour to hour basis, especially in the UK! Risk assessments are a vital part of coaching a group in an open water venue to ensure safety for all — swimmers, coaches and spectators alike. Open water swimmers also need to learn how to vary their technique to meet different conditions such as choppy water — for example by increasing their stroke rate and making it shorter.
Even the most competitive pool swimmers can have phobias of open water! What do you think is the main challenge coaching open water swimming? One of the main challenges of coaching in open water is the distance between the athletes and the coach.
Each of these has their own challenges.
