  • 3 Ways to Encourage Creativity in the Workplace Creativity in the workplace is essential in many different businesses. Not only does it allow your employees to enjoy what they are working on, but it can also bring about innovative new ideas and creations that may not have been thought of before. Many people believe that to be creative you have to be artistic, but that s not necessarily always the case.

    In fact, even the most corporate businesses can benefit from a boost of creativity in their office! If you re looking to boost the creativity levels of your employees, here are 3 ways in which you can encourage creative thinking (and doing!) in your workplace! Allow Employees to be Flexible with Ideas The worst thing you can do when trying to foster creative thinking in the workplace is to force ideas on your employees.

    Not only will this make them more reluctant to put forward their own ideas, but it will also reduce the chances of them coming up with their own solutions to issues. You want to give your employees some freedom with their ides so that they can start thinking creatively. If they are restricted to one solution, they are more likely to just accept that it s the only way that the process or task can be done and follow what they know to be right .

    Give them some creative freedom with their work. Who knows, they may come up with a more successful, efficient way of working! Encourage Idea Sharing Collaboration is key for a creative mind.

    Your employees may already have creative minds, but without feeling like they can share their ideas and solutions, they will most likely keep them to themselves rather than speak out about them. Encouraging idea sharing in the workplace is a great way to coax your employees into sharing those ideas. You could even incorporate your office design into this process by dedicating an area of your office to idea sharing.

    Why not have whiteboard walls where employees can add their thoughts or ideas every so often? Seeing other creative ideas is a great way to gain inspiration, too! You could also arrange an ideas meeting on a regular basis which encourages employees to put forward ideas about how the company or department could do better!

    Create a Creative Support Network Creative minds need constant feedback as to whether people think that their ideas or work is good enough. They crave constructive criticism and need some form of support when it comes to coming up with new, creative ideas. This is why it is essential to be supporting of creativity in the workplace.

    You will often be asked to give feedback, and it s important to be critical but constructive at the same time. This will allow your team to progress positively and get a better idea of the direction they need to take their work in to keep in alignment with the business as a whole. It s also confidence boosting to hear what other people think of your work!

    Creativity really does go hand in hand with productivity, and it doesn t necessarily mean that all your employees will turn into artists!

  • 3m School Transfer Market: Which academies trust got The Department for Education (DfE) has come under fire for paying some academy chains more than 500,000 to take over struggling schools described by a teachers union as little more than bribery. New figures suggest the total bill for rebrokering could be as high as 13 million. The department was ordered by a court to reveal how much it paid new academy sponsors to take over failing schools after a 12-month legal battle ended in favour of transparency campaigners.

    The figures obtained by Janet Downs from campaign group Local Schools Network show 3 million was paid out between September 2013 and October 2014. But, while seven academy chains were paid nothing to take over academies, another seven were paid 200,000 or more. The largest amount was 534,300 paid to Fallibroome Academy for its takeover of Winsford Academy, in Chester, in September 2014.

    Mary Bousted (pictured below), general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, told Schools Week: These figures show the hidden cost of academisation. I m not surprised the DfE tried to keep them hidden because they are shocking. It really exposes the fact that we have to bribe academy sponsors which is essentially what these costs are.

    It shows there is are not a plethora of academy chains wanting to take over struggling schools. Academy chains have told Schools Week the cash was negotiated to fund school improvement intervention, continuing professional development (CPD) for staff and to cover budget deficits. Peter Rubery, executive principle at Fallibroome, said the sum included a one-off capacity grant for new sponsors and funds for restructuring.

    Two academies, formally sponsored by millionaire businessman Brian Scowcroft s Richard Rose Federation, were transferred to United Learning for 245,825 per school. United Learning said the trust provided educational and financial support to the schools, adding: This is reflected in the rebrokering cost alongside payment towards the deficit we inherited at the academies. Both schools are now out of special measures.

    Another 110,000 was spent to move free school Minerva Academy, in London which only opened in 2012 and had fewer than 90 pupils on roll from CET Primary Schools to REAch2 Academy Trust. The chain said this was used for additional school improvement, CPD and business management support. The average cost of rebrokering moving a school from one chain to another was 131,000 for the 23 academies.

    If this average was applied to the 104 rebroker transactions the number ordered by the department up to August last year it would suggest the total bill is more than 13 million. Ms Downs told Schools Week: It s difficult to understand why some of these transfers cost so much. The DfE said new sponsors were being asked to take on the most struggling schools.

    But this wasn t the case in the top three most expensive transfers. She pointed out that The Winsford Academy, Stamford Welland Academy and Dartmouth Academy were all rated by Ofsted as requires improvement, rather than inadequate. Two of those include schools stripped from the E-ACT academy chain, following concerns raised by Ofsted.

    The chain had eight schools included in the data release, with rebrokering costs totalling 1.75 million. A spokesperson for the trust said all academies were transferred in line with the Education Funding Agency s (EFA) technical note. The DfE originally tried to withhold the data, claiming it would put off future sponsors if they learned other trusts had been given more cash.

    But the appeal judge said this suggested a bewildering blend of naivety and financial opportunism on the part of academy sponsors and overturned the DfE s refusal. When asked about the takeover costs, Dame Rachel de Souza, chief executive of the Inspiration Trust, said: The most important thing is making sure we get the best possible match between schools and sponsors so that all children get the best education they can. Thetford Academy, in Norfolk, was transferred from the sponsorship of Wymondham College to Inspiration Trust in September 2013 for no cost.

    Another academy chain chief, who did not want to be named, called for transparency and fairness for all trusts. Particularly those taking hard decisions to balance the books and I suspect that is in the mind of the EFA too. A DfE spokesperson said: We do not tolerate failure and the strength of the academies programme is that it allows us to intervene swiftly, including replacing sponsors where it is in the best interests of the school.

    We will not apologise for taking decisive action where needed. What are rebrokering costs? The costs are cash paid by the DfE to new sponsors as part of the takeover of schools normally judged to be in the most challenging of circumstances .

    They are decided on a case-by-case basis and are not published. However not all takeovers command a rebroker fee only those where there is evidence that it is required. For instance, where an academy has a deficit funding or needs building maintenance.

    The DfE, in its submission to the tribunal judge, said getting the right sponsor to transform education relied on a delicate negotiation with potential sponsors, both to persuade them to take on the school and to agree the support that they will need to make improvements for pupils .

  • A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS Last weekend was a mixture of frustration (to put it mildly in one case), disappointment, encouragement and excitement for our teams as summarised below. Ladies 1sts . The team laboured to a deserved 4-1 win at a cold Weybread over bottom-placed Ipswich.

    Emma Lee-Smith put them ahead in the first half only for a lively Ipswich to equalise after the break. The game was then transformed when seemingly out of the blue Abby Gooderham fired home one of the goals of the season with a superb reverse stick shot from the edge of the circle. Susan Wessels then converted a penalty corner before Abby set up Susan for a simple tap-in after another piece of individual skill.

    With time running out Abby seemed destined for a deserved second goal only for the umpire to blow for the end of the game with the ball about to roll into the unguarded goal! The team remains in fourth place and this coming Saturday is away to Maidenhead (1.30). Ladies 2nds.

    There was further frustration for the team when they conceded two early goals away to St Albans 2nds following decisions which on another day might have gone in their favour. But they went on to battle hard combined with some excellent hockey and they got a deserved late goal when Kara Kilbourn deflected home at a penalty corner. With this 2-1 defeat the team need to win at least two of their last three games (starting at home this Saturday against Maidstone (2.00) to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

    Ladies 3rds . After their 6-0 away win over Pelicans 2nds (with goals by Sarah Legg 2, Millie Preece 2, Katie Ogden and Mia King) and the draw for the 4ths the team now lead their league by three points from the 4ths who have a game in hand. Katie Woollatt was MOTM.

    This Saturday Lucy Field and her team are at home after four successive away games when they host third-placed UEA 2nds (3.30). Ladies 4ths . After five wins on the trot the team had to be content with a 1-1 home draw against a gritty Norwich City 2nds.

    Laura Tibbenham put them ahead in the first half after considerable City pressure and City hit back with a scrappy goal after the break for a deserved equaliser. Despite these two dropped points Treacle Griffin and her team can still win the league but they have a tricky away game with fourth placed Norwich Dragons 3rds (11.30) this Saturday who drew last weekend after coming up against the resolute defence of lowly Evergreens. END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco SATURDAY 19 MARCH, APOLLO CLUB, HARLESTON Arrive 7.30pm Awards 8.00pm Taxis 12.00am.

    Dress: Smart Tickets (which must be purchased in advance) are 20.00 and are available from clubhouse bar or from Jackie and Kevin Ridley 01379 854697 or 07815 199803. Please come to help make this evening both enjoyable and successful. Ladies 5ths .

    Two weeks ago in a re-arranged away game the team went down 6-3 to Watton 2nds but they were determined there would be no repeat at home and they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Imi Meynell-Anderson and Alice Evans-Hendrick put them 2-0 up at half time and skipper Jose Tibbenham made the game save with a couple later in the game. Fourth place is still attainable by the team but they will need to keep winning including at home to UEA 3rds on Saturday (10.15).

    Ladies 6ths . It was good to see the team earn a deserved point at home in a 2-2 draw with Evergreens 2nds. Ellie Fawkner gave them a first half lead and after Evergreens fought back to take the lead Ellie popped up with the equaliser with five minutes to go in an end to end match.

    This Saturday they are away to Norwich Dragons 6ths (3.15). Ladies 7ths . With a scheduled 5.30 start away to Norwich City 7ths the team knew they were in for a late finish.

    In the event with a delayed start they eventually came off the pitch at 7.20! After starting with ten players they lost Jane Collins through injury. Nevertheless they put up in a strong performance eventually losing 3-0.

    This week they are at home to Pelicans 3rds (12.15). Girls Development . Manager Sandra Elliner was obliged to select a very young side to play Pelicans with several players unavailable as they were playing the next day and with four playing for the 6ths.

    After a good game Pelicans came out on top winning 2-0. This Saturday the team is away to Yarmouth (10.00) whom they beat 5-0 in the middle of December. Men s 1sts.

    They just had to win their home match on Sunday with Teddington to keep alive their very slim national league survival hopes but it wasn t to be sadly as they went down 5-3. Myles King (with his first national league goal) and Ben Wright (with a penalty stroke conversion) had given the team the boost of a two-goal lead. Teddington hit back just before the interval and the game was transformed early in the second half with Teddington scoring three times in four minutes.

    Myles then scored again to give Magpies some hope but seeking an equaliser Magpies were caught on the break and the visitors, for whom it was good see out-on-loan Carl Sitch playing against his brother Leigh, scored again to win 5-3. This Sunday the team play their last home game of the season when they host Cambridge City at the changed time of 12 noon. Men s 2nds .

    Skipper Lawrence Baynes and his team were looking to build on their fine away win over Spalding when they took on fellow-strugglers Cambridge Univ 2nds at Weybread. It was soon clear they were in for a tough game and it was good to see Sam Moore and Richard Ling playing for Magpies for whom Thomas Ridley was in sparkling form. After a keen struggle the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw but the students struck with five minutes to go.

    This spurred Magpies on even further and Thomas gave them a deserved equaliser. While now off the bottom of the league Magpies will need to win at least two of their last four games to avoid relegation starting hopefully away to Felixstowe on Saturday (2.00). Men s 3rds .

    The team knew they were in for a tough game against league leaders IES 2nds despite beating them at home 5-1 earlier in the season. They conceded two sloppy goals early in the game and after getting to half time without further damage they let in another soon after.

    3-0 down soon came 4-0 but third-placed Magpies hit back with late goals by Jake Sewell and skipper Matt Brand to lose 4-2. With three games left promotion is still a possibility for Magpies but they will need to beat Norwich City 4ths at home on Saturday (1.45) to have a realistic chance.

    END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco please see above Men s 4ths . After their fine win over IES 3rds the previous week the team took a big step to avoiding relegation when they beat IES 4ths 1-0 away to move up to 5th place in their league. Their goal came in the last minute through Ali Williamson with his first for the club in thirteen years after he beat three players in the circle.

    What a goal! But they are still not completely safe although a win on Saturday at home to North Norfolk 2nds (12.00) would do the trick. Men s 5ths .

    They were up against league leaders Bury St Edmunds 4ths in the last game at Weybread by which time I have to confess I had sought the warmth of the clubhouse and with it an excellent meal thanks to the Ladies 1sts. Andy Caston twice brought his team level before Bury pulled away to lead 5-2. Lewis Belsey then scored to make the final score a respectable 5-3.

    On Saturday they are away to Thetford Town (2.30) who like them are in mid-table comfort. Men s 6ths . Eric Davy s team continues to amaze!

    Their 2-1 home win over Norwich Dragons 5ths was their seventh in their last eight games with the other ending in a draw. They were a goal down at half time before Eric got the equaliser (although this was incorrectly challenged in the clubhouse by jealous team-mates!) after Jon Wells had created the penalty corner. With seven minutes to go and with an appreciative roar from the spectators Richard Chopper Allcock fired home the winner after a shot from Roger Kent had come back off a post.

    The prospect of promotion for the team remains a concern (!) but they have three demanding games remaining including away to Norfolk Nomads on Saturday (2.30). Boys Development . While father Andy was scoring a brace for the 5ths sons Tom and Jake Caston were scoring the four goals by which the Dev team won 4-0 away to Pelicans.

    Tom went one better than his father scoring three times while Jake had to be content with one. The team, which does not have a game this week, is now back on the top of their league two points ahead of Norwich Dragons (having played a game more) who they play away on Saturday week. Mixed.

    The team is at home to Norwich City on Sunday (2.00) in the 3rd round of the EH Trophy. U18 Girls. The team had the frustration of their mini-bus breaking down on their long trip to play Neston South Wirral on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the EH Plate.

    They then had the further frustration of losing 1-0 through a late goal. But to their credit they honoured the fixture. U16 Girls.

    Frustration mixed with bewilderment (and something stronger) must have be the emotions of the team and their supporters when after beating Cambridge City 2-1 and drawing 1-1 with hosts Leicester in the regional finals their game against Worcester was called off with ten minutes to go when they were leading 8-0 (with Abby Gooderham scoring a remarkable seven goals). The reason being that it says in the rules no team may lose by more than eight goals. This meant our team lost out to Leicester on goal difference of two after Leicester had surprisingly beaten a strong looking Cambridge City 8-0.

    U16 Boys. They had drama of their own at the regional finals in Canterbury drawing 3-3 with Teddington after being three up with six minutes to play. They then came from two down to draw 2-2 with Old Loughtonians before losing 3-1 to Canterbury.

    U14 Girls. They missed out on reaching their regional final when they lost 3-2 away to Norwich City. They recovered from 3-0 down with goals by Grace Collison and Georgie Cantrell and were pressing for the equaliser at the final whistle.

    U14 Boys. The team is through to the Midlands regional final on goal difference after Norwich Dragons beat Bury St Edmunds 3-1 on Sunday. U10/U12 Boys and Girls.

    Congratulations to our four A teams who have qualified for the East Finals to be held at Weybread over the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 16/17 April after their exciting successes in the Norfolk Championships at Pelicans HC on Sunday. The U10 Girls finished as champions while the other teams came second. This coming Sunday they will be joined by our B teams, who had their own event at Weybread, when they all compete in the Norwich Dragons Minis.

    Finally, a remarkable record at Weybread last Saturday when on the sand-based pitch there was a member of the Davy family playing in all four games for Magpies, namely Louise (10.45 for the 5ths), Katie (12.15 for the Development), father Eric (1.45 for the 6ths) and Louise and Julie and mother Marie (3.15 for the 6ths).

  • Age UK Norwich Art Exhibition at largest Norfolk Hospital Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals will be featuring a new art exhibition from Age UK Norwich which aims to capture older people s history in words, pictures and sounds. The exhibition will be on show along the hospital street Level 1, and will feature important moments to promote a better sense of understanding and care. The exhibition showcases five Life Stories created by students from the Jane Austen College who have worked closely with local older people to produce Life Story Scrapbooks.

    BBC Voices trained the pupils in recording skills and alongside the photography and scrapbook display, the public will be able to hear the older people s memories come to life. Emma Jarvis, Hospital Arts Co-ordinator, said: People visit hospitals for a variety of reasons so we provide a wide variety of art for patients, visitors and staff. We are really pleased to be showcasing the work by Age UK Norwich especially as Age UK is of service to both the visitors and patients of our older people s medicines wards and the art is a way of displaying both services available and information.

    Age UK Norwich Chief Executive Susan Ringwood said: The life stories work we do is an important project helping to prevent older people from becoming invisible. If the time comes when their abilities do become impaired, there is a record of who this person once was, what they have done, where they have been. This intergenerational project lasted three months and is just one example of the work Age UK Norwich carries out in the city to help tackle loneliness and social isolation.

    The exhibition is open until the end of April 2016.

    Notes: The Hospital Arts Project at NNUH works on diverse projects with the community, interior design, site specific arts, performances, workshops, exhibitions, events and gardens Is hospital arts charitably funded as a whole? Many of its projects project are funded by grants from organisations and charitable donations.

  • Applecart Theatre - i Am Mark The bold London based storytelling company Applecart is touring the UK this autumn with their show i Am Mark a production that challenges the way we perceive religion and retells one of history s most famous tales. On Wednesday 15 th October they are taking over www.thegarage.org.uk 1 JESUS THE TERRORIST? MODERN MARK COURTS CONTROVERSY the pace of this production is unrelenting, leaving you both challenged and entertained at the finale something that is not easily achieved.

    Henry Austin, The London Economic AN EXPLOSIVE new production casting Jesus as a rebel leader, and featuring a terrorist strapping a bomb to himself, is set to challenge traditional church goers when it opens. Edgy theatre company Applecart claims the controversial modern day makeover of St Mark s Gospel: i am Mark will rid the story of its stuffy religious baggage. Instead they plan to show the Son of God as a revolutionary leader in the dramatic production that features a bomb-laden man counting down the seconds until he blows himself up.

    Artistic director Peter Moreton said: We re treating the story with huge respect but it has often been marginalised by the church. Jesus is subversive and political, which doesn t sit well with the dull and often narrow world of organized religion. He added that their production rid the tale of 2000 years of baggage using fresh and sometimes strong language.

    Storyteller Phil Summers added: For us a theatre in the heart of the city is a far better setting for a story of social unrest and revolution than an old echoing cathedral. This is why they have chosen Norwich! i Am Mark Using a combination of theatre, film, music and comedy they will tell the entire of Mark s Gospel for one night only at the Garage on the 15 th October 2014.

    The production was first performed at the Leicester Theatre in the West End and is touring throughout the UK this autumn during September and October.

  • Are we about to see the death of diesel? The VW emissions scandal could see a fall in the popularity of diesel engines, and this is no bad thing reckons Hilton Holloway I m as much to blame as anyone. Right back in 1998 I got my hands on one of the first super-punchy Mk4 Volkswagen Golf 1 diesels. That thing was a riot: an ordinary hatchback that had huge in-gear pace and seriously impressive fuel economy.

    And sometimes both at the same time. I well remember a Boxing Day trip to Wymondham in Norfolk, up a deserted A11. The road was punctuated by roundabouts, the hyper-diesel s favourite territory.

    Three-up, I was being trailed by a chap in an original Audi S4 2 Avant, which was no mean performer back then. Volkswagen in emissions cheating scandal 3 However, the hyper-Golf left the stumbling Audi for dead at every roundabout exit, where the VW s mid-range punch was almost comical. This was clearly the future: a compact, light, hatchback with serious pace and high 40mpg economy.

    Six years later I was scrabbling around in the gutters of Piccadilly, central London. I was photographing the kerb stones which appeared to be thickly coated in a graphite-like substance. It was, in fact, the particulates being emitted mainly by London s ageing diesel bus fleet.

    What I couldn t see although those with sensitive chests might have felt was the nasty nitrogen oxides also being emitted by the diesel engines. In 1994, the newly-formed Transport for London had introduced the infamous Congestion Charge , basing it on the level of CO2 emissions from vehicles. And in the global warming panic, the strict meanings of CO2 emissions and pollution had been dangerously possibly deliberately welded into one.

    High-CO2 vehicles were polluting . Reducing CO2 emissions had to be a national and local priority. In fact, as I pointed out on many internet forums, replacing London s 24,000 black cabs with 24,000 petrol Range Rovers would massively improve central London s air quality.

    Living on a busy road in the capital, I had come to realise that the layers of fine dirt and dust on the front door and on the window sills was not just the backwash of living in city, it was mostly particulates, fired from the exhausts of vans, trucks, taxis and many older cars. It has taken a ridiculously long time for law makers, civil servants and the media to wake up to the threat from diesel engines that are used in stop-start conditions. Scientific studies showing London s Oxford Street, and roads in central Oxford, Manchester and Birmingham were among the most polluted in the world seem to be published to no effect.

    Certainly, the amount of pollution put out by diesel engines has fallen dramatically in the last few years, but there are plenty of scientists who are concerned that the newest engines are emitting ever smaller particulates, which, ironically, are so small they might get lodged deep in the lungs and even pass into the bloodstream. Recent real-world tests by Emissions Analytics revealed in the Sunday Times with great fanfare but little political effect show that even the most modern diesel engines can emit far more pollution than their laboratory rating suggests. Anything from regular stop-start traffic to speed bumps can, for example, cause peaks in nitrogen oxides emissions.

    The latest estimates are that there are 9500 premature deaths in the capital alone from exposure to pollution. Then s there s the mostly unexplored issue of what happens as diesel engines age and internal components such as the injectors wear out. We ve all seen clouds of black smoke from those tatty 55-plate Mondeos and Astras.

    And that s not even considering the damage being done by the huge numbers of hard-driven and high-mileage commercial vehicles. However, the VW diesel test scandal in the US might be the final push that lines up all everything we know about diesel pollution and starts the avalanche of public opinion that marks the beginning of the end for these engines. Certainly, some EU6 diesel engines remain clean even in city conditions.

    And Volvo s use of computer controlled Denso diesel injectors means, the company claims, that the engine will remain inside EU6 pollution parameters for its whole life. Diesel engines are increasingly complex and expensive to manufacture, however, and units from the later 2000s are now proving expensive in later life as dual mass flywheels, particulate filters and diesel fuel pumps fail expensively. Ask a London mini-cab driver: the use of low-pollution and ultra-reliable hybrid petrol Priuses and Insights is now common for people who drive for a living.

    Weaning us off diesel won t be easy. The economy is unbeatable, the in-gear performance addictive and the motorway pace undeniable. The European Union and UK government would also have to untangle CO2-based motoring taxation.

    Fuel bills might rise, but petrol turbos especially the upcoming 48V hybrids (which are relatively inexpensive and highly effective are increasingly convincing. Selling somebody a 50mpg Golf 1.4 TSI will be no hard thing, but shifting commercial traffic away from diesel is a much bigger task. Here, we have to take a lead from East Asia where the use of clean-burning gas is common for taxis, buses and small and medium commercial vehicles.

    Sure, it s a huge change, but once the US authorities get stuck into measuring the real-world pollution from oil-burning engines, the resulting global publicity could finally usher in the end of the great dash for diesel.

  • articlesworldbank Β» β€œThere are many heroes in farming – and then ... Farmers Weekly 1 Awards 2015: Lifetime Achievement Award 2 David-Richardson David Richardson Farmer, broadcaster and journalist An enquiring mind, extraordinary memory and wit have entertained readers, listeners and viewers across the country and globe. David Richardson s insatiable appetite to learn and meet new people has led him to all corners of the world and he has used the knowledge he gained to inform, inspire new thinking and champion British farming 3 for more than 50 years. Few writers could boast the consistency and commitment of David s journalistic career as a columnist, broadcaster and reporter.

    Yet this has been achieved in tandem with building a successful farming business and representing the interests of the industry at a local and national level. His achievements within the industry make him one of the most recognisable figures in British farming. There are many heroes in farming and then there are a few living legends.

    David has given so much of his life to further our industry. His boundless energy, enquiring mind and visionary approach that led to the development of Leaf, among many other achievements, make him a very worthy winner of this Lifetime Achievement Award Caroline Drummond I can think of no-one more deserving of this award than David, who through his TV programmes 4 , articles, international tours and as co-founder of Leaf has been an inspiration to all in the industry Teresa Wickham The remarkable thing about David is the sheer number of people who know him and his instant recall of people and places right down to the last answer they gave him at an interview Alan Alston, Norfolk farmer He has written a Farmers Weekly column since the early 1990s, making him one of the longest-serving columnists in the publication s history. His writing offers insight, analysis and entertainment and his loyal following of readers trust his judgement and expertise.

    See all the winners and pictures from the night on our Farmers Weekly Awards page. Over the past six decades he has also contributed to the Financial Times, Big Farm Weekly and Big Farm Management 5 . He has twice been presented with the prestigious Netherthorpe Award for Communicator of the Year by the Guild of Agricultural Journalists 6 .

    David does not come from a traditional farming 7 background. His father, a talented speaker and singer , recalls long-standing friend Alan Alston kept pigs at the bottom of the garden . But when David was only in his 20s he leased a 140ha arable farm with his father west of Norwich.

    Over the years, by buying land, his family has built this up to a 400ha arable business with a livery enterprise alongside. His communications skills were spotted at an early age when he was involved in his local Wymondham 8 branch of the Young Farmers Club. He very quickly made a name for himself as a public speaker, which drew the attention of Gordon Moseley, who asked him to keep his agricultural countryside farming radio slot warm for six months.

    David took the opportunity and this proved to be the start of a golden period of presenting farming matters on radio and TV. A natural in front of the microphone and camera, David has appeared in a wide range of programmes on food, farming and the countryside, including radio shows such as On your farm, TV programmes such as Anglia s Country People and Farming Diary, as well as the iconic Sunday lunchtime TV show Farming. Yet despite his talents as a communicator, David is still very much a farmer, and a pioneering one at that.

    In 1991 he co-founded Linking Environment and Farming (Leaf), which advocates the integration of the production of safe food at affordable prices with care for the countryside and the enhancement of the environment . It was prompted in part by a visit to Germany, which convinced David UK farmers should emulate farmers there to embrace methods that would protect the countryside and environment. His role in promoting a new approach to managing the land was recognised in 2000 when he was awarded an OBE for services to integrated farming.

    Learning about the agricultural industry through travel has been a feature of David s career. Back in the 1970s he started to lead one or two farming tours a year to places other tourists couldn t reach , such as China and Russia. He is still leading these agricultural expeditions with Field Farm Tours, often using his own contacts to compile the itinerary.

    David is a man who has seized the opportunities presented to him and made the most of them. But he has also given back to the industry that has served him so well, particularly in his home county of Norfolk 9 . He is a past president of the Royal Norfolk Show 10 , was the long-running chairman of the Sentry Farming Conference and is a former chairman of the buying group Loddon Farmers, which went on to become part of Anglia Farmers.

    In 2007 he was one of the first people to sound a warning bell about the food security crisis facing the world as the population expands, producing a discussion paper for policymakers. He is also a trustee of the Henry Plumb Foundation, which offers grants to young farmers, showing his passion for helping the next generation. But of course the most definitive account of David s life is in his own biography, which he has just completed, titled In At The Deep End.

  • Aylsham Country Market celebrates 40th anniversary 40 years of service to Aylsham It s forty years since the first Victoria Sandwich was sold at Aylsham s Country Market! In those days it was known as the WI Market (and many people still call it this) but it subsequently adopted the Country Market banner, part of the nationwide cooperative social enterprise which boasts 300 branches from Penzance in Cornwall up to Ponteland in Northumberland and as far west as St David s in Wales. On 7 th August, Aylsham Country Market will be celebrating its 40 year anniversary with a special morning featuring an array of tasters and special events, all open to the public.

    Held in the Town Hall from 8.30am to noon, there will be an Anniversary Cake, to be ceremoniously cut by one of the Market s founder members, while current members will enjoy a lunch after the Market has closed. On the Friday before these celebrations, 31 st July, youngsters are being invited to the Market to help make paper bunting which will be strung up in the Town Hall on 7 th August .

    Nowadays the produce on offer at Aylsham Country Market goes far beyond the Victoria sponges and jars of jam that were the staple of 1970s. These are of course still available but in addition you are likely to find quiches, steak & mushroom pies, carrot cakes and a very recent addition Brazilian dishes, alongside plants, flowers, vegetables and a wide selection of crafts, from greetings cards to knitted goods. One thing that hasn t changed is the commitment to quality, homemade and home produced.

    Whether it s a sausage roll, a piece of fudge, a knitted sweater, a bunch of fuchsias or a cabbage, customers can be assured that they are buying something that s been cooked, crafted or grown at home. If you haven t been before, pop along to Aylsham Town Hall on a Friday morning to find out what the modern Country Market has to offer. You might want to have a cuppa and snack in its popular caf too.
