We welcomed back Roger Powell having enjoyed his talk in October on ‘Royal Mistresses’. Roger is an expert genealogist, and he realised that whilst there were many descendants of English Monarchs who were born ‘out of wedlock’, the only book on the subject was one covering the medieval period. He decided to write a book covering the period from 1509 to the current day. This talk is a by-product of his thorough research of illegitimate Royal Progeny.
He started by giving us numbers of the known illegitimate offspring to Monarchs of the Golden Ages, ranging from James II having 2 to Henry I who produced 22. (There could be further unrecognised ones.)
This seemed a high number, until he went on to give us French Monarchs’ numbers, with the aptly named Augustus ‘The Strong’ numbering 365 recorded progeny! And even more prolific was Emil of Morocco who is reputed to have produced 525 sons and 342 daughters, all illegitimate.
He then examined the potential for offspring born out of wedlock to inherit the throne. The first to do so was William I when the Duchy of Normandy didn’t want the rightful heir, a 78 year old, to rule over them. Later, Robert, Earl of Gloucester, one of Henry I’s, illegitimate sons, promised to look after the legitimate heir, Mathilda, when she was pronounced Queen. Henry died in France, and Robert’s nephew, Stephen, put forward instead that Robert should become King as Mathilda wasn’t suitable to reign. Robert was offered the crown, but whilst he was suitable in many ways, he didn’t want to fight the imminent battle, so Stephen was asked to take over. This he did very honourably, and Stephen supported the choice of Mathilda’s son to succeed him, returning the line to legitimacy when he was crowned Henry II.
Another interesting and little known fact was that in 1216 England was successfully invaded by the French. Louis VIII was proclaimed Monarch of England for 18 months, so we should have had a Louis I of England recorded.
Roger gave us many more and detailed examples of the fate of other Royal illegitimate offspring. This showed that in England such inheritance was not accepted, whereas in France it was common practice.
Space does not allow any more examples, but this and much more can be found in Roger Powell’s excellent book, which was available to buy at the meeting

TRIPS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
Many of us enjoy the trips and other social events organised by willing fellow members of Wycliffe Lutterworth U3A and we are really grateful to these organisers for the time and effort they invest in making these events a success. In the course of organisation, they do, however, encounter some problems and this is where we can really help to ease their administrative burden. Events are usually publicised several months ahead and usually we sign up for a trip or event at a monthly meeting. If we subsequently discover that we cannot participate, it would be a great help if we contact the organiser and let them know in good time. In addition, it is very important that participants pay for the event or trip in time for the monthly meeting immediately prior to it, so that organisers know exactly how many people they are making bookings for. Of course there are always unforeseen circumstances which force people to cancel at the last minute and we shall always try to find someone else to take their place if at all possible, but we ask that members understand that late cancellation may mean that they forfeit the money paid as it is usually too late for the organiser to get it back.
Committee members are busy planning more social events for the coming year and we hope that as many as possible of you will come along.
AUGUST MEETING (August 21st and not August 14th!)
Plans are now well ahead for our own commemoration of
World War I in this centenary year. This has involved the Family History group and their research into the lives of the soldiers commemorated on the Bitteswell War memorial. Based on the information they have gathered, we have a “mother”, two “fathers” and a family “friend” who will tell you the story of four of the young soldiers. In addition, the Poetry group has selected poems on the general theme of war ranging from World War I to 1974, and the Art group will be exhibiting their paintings on this theme in the church . We have tried to bring all these talents together in one programme, which will also include some of the well-known songs of the era, which we hope you will join in singing. A great deal of work has gone into the preparation and we do hope that as many of you as possible will come along. It promises to be a moving but also enjoyable tribute to those local men who gave their lives in the Great War
POSSIBLE NEW ACTIVITY GROUPS
There have been 3 suggestions for new Interest Groups: Philately, Art History, and Archaeology.
Philately speaks for itself, and if anyone is interested in becoming part of this group, please contact either myself, or Mike Southall (group coordinator). on 01455 554124
For Art History, the proposal is to meet once a month at a local gallery, and select a picture to study before discussing aspects of the picture over coffee. If anyone has an interest in art and would like to become part of this group, please contact either Ursula on 01455 553563 or myself (Nigel on 01455 209756)
The Archaeology Group would involve site and/or museum visits, and possible exploratory test pits in member’s gardens where a metre square would be excavated, 100mm at a time, to understand the archaeology of not only the garden but also Lutterworth as a whole. If anyone is interested in an initial meeting to discuss format and how the group should proceed, please contact either myself, or Mike Southall (group coordinator) on 01455 554124.
Also, if there is anyone who would like to join an Interest Group but has experienced difficulty for any reason (e.g. no space within the group, group meets on an inconvenient date etc.), then please could you let me know.
And also…..CIRCLE DANCE GROUP – TASTER SESSION
Circle Dance involves dancing some folk type dances from round the world. The dances are chosen for simple light movements with soothing repetition to enable both movement and relaxation. There is no need for a partner as participants are each individuals in a circle. Typically, dances have 6, 8 or 16 steps before repeating so that picking them up is fairly easy. All dances are taught and walked through at every session. Being “a good dancer” is not a requirement!
At our last monthly meeting no fewer than 35 people expressed an interest in taking part in a taster session for this new activity. The date for this taster session has been fixed as Monday 14th July from 2 till 4 p.m. (with a tea break in the middle) in the School Room of Lutterworth Methodist Church, Bitteswell Road. Whilst some people may not be able to make this date, we do hope that a good number will come and participate, with a view to making this a permanent activity group, should a sufficient number be interested. See you there!

(in alphabetical order)
The book this month was Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. This book considered a classic of the twentieth century by many, once again received a mixed reception from our group. Some members found it heavy going, most agreed it needed concentration to enjoy properly (no reading it at bedtime!) and one member did not get past the first chapter. For those who did persevere it was remarkably prescient. This book written in 1948 talks of the proletariat (the proles ) being kept happy with cheap beer and the lottery whilst the middle orders toe the party line or risk being 'vaporised' and the upper echelons lording it over everyone. Apart from the being vaporised element we all seemed to recognise some aspects of life today. The group felt this was one book that was rewarding to read again and/or to read some time after it was written. This seemed to give the book a different perspective and it was interesting to note how many of the book's ideas have entered everyday language. Newspeak, doublethink and of course Room 101. Still a book to make you think.
The Supper Club members met at Mary & Dave’s house & had a very enjoyable summer evening. It was delightful to sit in the garden for some of the meal.
The 9th July supper will be at Ruth & Nigel Bones at 7pm – 01455 209756
The 13th August is at Carol & Ron Poultons – 01455 559069
Please let Ruth & Carol know if you are going & what dish you will be bringing. Also bring your own drink, plates & cutlery.
Yet again, we were blessed with perfect cycling weather when we met at Draycote Water for our June cycle ride; warm summer sunshine and a light breeze. Following the track round the reservoir, we came off at the old Rugby to Leamington railway track (now a cycle track and nature walk) and cycled to Birdingbury where we left the track and cycled towards Long Itchington. We had a slight setback when one of the group (who shall remain nameless!) took us in the wrong direction out of Bidingbury, but a slight modification to the planned route got us back on track again. At Long Itchington, we enjoyed an excellent pub lunch at a canal side pub before cycling along the canal towpath, and then back to Birdingbury and Draycote Water. We covered approximately 18 miles, but as the route was fairly flat, everyone agree the ride was much easier than the previous ride (May) that took us through some rolling hills of Northampton.
If anyone would like to join us, please contact Nigel on 01455 209756 (weather not guaranteed!)
It is now a year since we started this Group and we have (I think!) managed not to repeat ourselves with the exception of Italian Food - and there the dining experiences were completely different. The Axe and Compass at Wolvey is a “Pesto” Restaurant now, and we went for a “Festa” Party Menu – which is to Italian Food what Tapas is to Spanish cuisine. The other Italian Restaurant was “Rossini” in Hinckley which belied its unprepossessing frontage and turned out to be at the fine dining end of the spectrum. One of our group still keeps banging her cutlery on the table and demanding to go back soon!
However, the same person was delighted by our dinner at “Le Bistrot Pierre” in the centre of Leicester, on Tuesday 24th June. We changed our night to go there as their “Soiree Gastronomique” 6-Course Set Dinner for £22.95 is only offered once a fortnight on Tuesday evenings. We felt that it was a superb meal – good food, tastefully served on HOT plates, the service attentive without being intrusive. As for the “Fondant au Chocolat”, it was a match for Heston any day!! (and the Car Park was only £2!) Just about the best meal of the last year!!!
Wednesday 23rd July – I have made a provisional booking at the Istanbul Turkish Restaurant Nuneaton – (good reviews on Trip Advisor).Easy to find from Lutterworth. Head for the Axe and Compass at Wolvey and follow the road into Nuneaton. When you get to the Church on the “Ring Road” – turn right and follow round to the Bus Station. Turn in leaving the bus stands on the left and there is a multi storey car park on the right just at the edge of the pedestrianized area and just beside the Istanbul. I am hoping to negotiate a “Party” Menu.
Wednesday 27th August – what about an “English” Restaurant? We could try “The Attic” at Kilworth Springs Golf Club.
September – there is “Mobius” – a Greek Restaurant at Braunstone Gate, Leicester.
Has anybody been there? Where do you park? Bon Appetit!
ALL THAT JAZZ – Since 16th May, I have found out that “Hotfingers” was the name of the GROUP and not of the artist!Well, they were excellent – whatever they were called individually or collectively. As were the other Groups some of us have listened to since – “Bridget and the Big Girl Blues”, “The Sarah Smith Quartet” and on Friday 27th June “Ben Holder (violin) and Will Barnes (guitar)” As Summersault’s Flyer said, it was “Physical energy combined with unbelievable skill and passion into the musical dynamic phenomenon that is Holder and Barnes. This will be the start of their tour called “Influences” – a tribute to the musical influence of the great jazz gypsy duo Stephan Grapelli and Django Reinhardt. 1940’s costume encouraged.” Well – only one couple turned up in 1940’s gear and they were brave enough to get up and dance at times! All this and GREAT FOOD TOO!!
Coming up on Friday, Jul 11, 2014 The band is “The Julie Edwards Trio”. Julie is one of the country’s finest jazz singers. Cool and sophisticated and accompanied by Kevin Deardon on jazz guitar - one of the most respected session musicians around. Good food, good drink good music – a perfect way to start the weekend.
If you are interested in the Jazz Evenings and want to be kept informed of when we might be going to Summersault, please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org )and I will add you to my Jazz List.
Nine people attended. We started by talking about a recent event in each of our lives, which included a slide show of Cynthia’s Italian holiday, South Pacific at Kilworth House, an engagement and many other interesting occurrences. Our topical translation concerned World Music Day and celebrating the summer solstice, followed by rather an obscure music crossword (clue given “bad singer” - answer “casserole”). Finally we looked at tennis terminology so that we could study while watching Wimbledon!
The next meeting will be on 24 July.
For June, the Group had a delightful day out at Barnsdale Gardens, near Oakham. There are 39 different small gardens to view and they were full of colour as we wandered in the warm sunshine. There were unusual varieties of many of the familiar summer plants and shrubs, and the roses were particularly spectacular.
Our group member, Eileen Spencer, who opens her garden under the NGS scheme has invited us to visit her garden for our monthly meeting on Tuesday 22nd July. The address is ‘Farmway’, Church Farm Lane, Willoughby Waterleys, LE8 6UD. and we will meet there at 2.30 p.m. Unfortunately, Church Farm Lane is very narrow at the top so please park in the village (Main Street), preferably near the Village Hall and Pub, and walk up the church path through the churchyard. Eileen will mark the way with yellow balloons. The cost will be £4.50 which will include refreshments. Definitely a ‘plant lovers’ garden and one not to miss.
If you would like to visit, please contact Maggie Rigby by email on email@example.com or telephone 01455 557615.
Tuesday 10th June – Foxton Locks Inn – As a newcomer to the area, I hadn’t been to Foxton Locks before and found the setting superb. The weather was good and the company – as usual – excellent. Our waiter was friendly and very patient as we deliberated over our Menu choices. Though I must admit being rather taken aback when one bill came to £19.50 (Main Course, Dessert and glass of House Wine) as we usually go tend to go for the “Cheap & Cheerful” end of the market with our Tuesday Lunches. However, everyone seemed to enjoy the occasion which is the main thing.
Tuesday 8th July – The Langton Farm Shop, East Langton LE16 7TG Tel 01858 545819
North of Market Harborough and just off the A6 - Report next month.
Tuesday 19th August – Manor Farm Shop and Tea Room,Catthorpe – just off the A5 and only about 6 miles from Lutterworth. On Tuesdays they do a Roast Lunch for £7.50 including Tea/Coffee. A very pleasant little cafe. Note the date – a third Tuesday - as this allows time for everyone to sign up at the U3A Monthly Meeting the week before.
Everyone is aware of the difficulties of those wanting to buy or even rent a home. The latest house price rise in London is 17% and 11% for the rest of the country. All group members are grateful to have their own houses. Retired people want to downsize, but aren’t selling because there are too few suitable smaller properties. Lutterworth is well provided with bungalows but this is not true in other areas. Two bed houses are often part of bigger developments of 3, 4 and 5 bed properties where older people do not wish to live. This is compounded by a general lack of availability of 2 bed houses, and people are living longer. In London the super-rich are buying up the most expensive houses and whole streets, keeping them empty so that they increase in capital value.
Often transport, schools, health services and jobs are lacking when new estates are built putting an intolerable strain on these services. S.106 payments made by developers to local authorities enable these companies to abdicate responsibility for building this infrastructure.
Rents are very high, and in Leicestershire a 3 bed house can cost between £800 and £1,000 per month. People find it very difficult to save a deposit with so much of their income going on rent. Children are living at home until their 30s now, unless they have help from families to get on the ladder. Key workers such as health, social, and cleaning staff find it almost impossible to live in cities.
Until recently immigration has been unlimited making the housing crisis much worse. Thatcher’s Right-to-Buy policy was good. However local authorities were prevented from building to replace these houses thus causing a dearth of social housing. Private landlords and housing associations have moved in to fill the gap and this unregulated market is causing problems too. Leases last for 6 months and whilst it is understandable that poor payers or bad tenants should be moved on, the effect on decent families can be catastrophic with children having to change schools frequently. In addition agencies charge up to £500 for every change.
So what did we see as the solutions? Governments should take a long-term overview and plan for the future. This should be cross-party regardless of who’s in power:
· Fill empty properties of which there are several million across the UK (exclude 2nd homes) – the infrastructure is already in place
· Use taxes to deter empty properties
· Use taxes to deter foreign property investments
· Fill unused shops and the flats above – the infrastructure is already in place
· Develop the ‘Guardian’ system where people rent part or all of an empty commercial building and ‘guard ’it in return for a lower rent – the infrastructure is already in place
· Enforce or change S.106 requiring developers to FIRST build roads and ensure the other infrastructure for developments BEFORE building houses
· Remove tax relief for buy-to-let landlords
· Introduce rental regulation – look at European models where there are controlled rents, long leases and well managed properties.
· Streamline the planning system
· Use brown field sites – the infrastructure is already in place
· Forecast the types of properties required and invite developers to bid for these contracts (currently the housing industry is driven by profit not housing need)
· Build new towns complete with infrastructure
· Support HS2 and other projects which link all areas of the UK
There are 5 million people on housing benefit and the cost of this is 20 times what is spent on building. Wages certainly need to reflect the true cost of living, but diverting housing benefit to building the homes we need would bring down rents and prices and eventually lower the cost to the nation. Faster construction methods such as those in Germany and Scandinavia would help too. We’re so lucky that we’re not starting out now.
For this get together we talked about poems which had meant something to us in childhood, poems we learnt at school and, for those of us with a sadly poetry free childhood, poems which first introduced us to the delights of poetry.
Poems for children (and adults) included Longfellow's "The Song of Hiawatha", Kenneth Graeme's "Mr Toad", Browning's "Pied Piper of Hamelin" , A A Milne's "Lines and Squares", "Rub-a-dub-dub" , Martin Armstrong's "Mrs Reece Laughs" and a bit of Spike Milligan "The boy stood on the burning deck. Twit."
We also discussed poems by Tennyson, Masefield, Coleridge, Hardy and Yeats, poems of politics, satire and angst.
The next session will be July 24th with a suggested theme of "Emotions".
Wednesday 4 June – The Grey Goose, Gilmorton. A very pleasant experience – we ordered as we arrived and so avoided having the hot meals cooling till all the meals were ready. We have now been to 2 out of the 3 Pub/Restaurants in Gilmorton, so I suppose that we should go to “The Crown Inn” sometime and sample what they have to offer.
Wednesday 2 July – Badgers Mount Hotel & Restaurant, 6 Station Road, Elmesthorpe LE9 7SG 25 people signed up for this. Report next month
Wednesday 6 August – The Bell Inn - 2 Kilworth Rd, Husbands Bosworth, LE17 6JZ Tel 01858 880246 The Walking Groups have been here and given good reports of the food.
11 Greenacres Drive
The second Scrabble players group to be held at my home (on June 11th) was unfortunately poorly attended. However this enabled us to play a five handed game on one board, which was very sociable and we managed three full games in the allotted two hour period.
This time it was June who managed a 76 point score by using all her letters in one go.
In the meantime Jill and I have perfected the “Scrabble Squeal “ which is used when a preceding player plays her tiles on the letter which you were intending to use when it came to your turn. Something like “Ooooh! I was going to go there”, uttered with a plaintive high pitched voice.
Another common phrase spoken fairly often during a game of Scrabble is complaints about vowels – yes – vowels with a “V”, usually consisting of having too many or contrarily not enough. Scrabble players, you must be thinking, are hard to please. Never mind – bring on the Jammie Dodgers!
Our next walk has been organised by Pat and Dave Hunter. It will be a walk around Fosse Meadows. Participants can either walk around the meadow on their own, or Pat will lead those who want to on a guided walk. Pat has organised an interesting activity which we can do alongside our walk….an observational activity of the natural world around us. One way to get to Fosse Meadows is to leave Lutterworth via the A5 at Magna Park, heading towards Hinckley; turning right at Smockington Hollows, signposted Sharnford. Drive through Sharnford, you will then see a brown sign indicating the Meadows off to the right. We will meet at the first car park ready to start the walk at 11.30 a.m. Sturdy footwear is advised and waterproof clothing if the weather is not promising as there is no shelter. Afterwards those who wish to can meet up for refreshments at The Pig in Muck (directions on how to get there will be given out at the end of the walk).
Marilyn, ably assisted by Rebecca led us on an interesting historic trail around North Kilworth. We saw and were told about the history of a number of notable buildings and local families. Amongst many other interesting dwellings we learnt about the history of The Old School, Nether Hall, St Andrews Church and Spring Cottage. The Rector of St Andrews together with his servant were in 1832 charged with the murder of Nicholas Wiseman, a local parishioner, with whom they were involved in a property dispute. The village boasts a wetland site known as The Bogs which is full of natural springs, alongside it and Spring Cottage an abundance of Butterbur grow, these were used to wrap the Butter which was produced. At the end of the walk we all adjourned to Kilworth Springs for lunch. Thanks to Marilyn for organising what turned out to be a lovely morning.

After a forecast of continuous heavy rain we were not surprised that only 5 people turned up at the Anchor pub at Hartshill. The rain was heavy and the visibility poor. After discussion and taking in the certainty of very muddy footpaths the concensus was that the walk should be abandoned. We plan to re-instate this walk at the end of August when hopefully it will be enjoyed by more people.

June 2014 Walk Report
George`s all day walk proved a great success for the 20 of us that set off from Lyddington on a beautiful sunny summers day. Having completed the steepest climb of the day we stopped for a drink and to enjoy the panoramic view over Eyebrook Resevoir.
It was constructed to supply the steel works at Corby. After some fairly easy walking we reached the traditional market town of Uppingham where we stopped for lunch. Refreshed we climbed out of Uppingham to eventually get a view of the impressive 82 arch Harringworth viaduct. At 1,275 yards long it is the longest masonry viaduct across a valley in Britain. We then made the short walk to Seaton where we took another break. The final leg of the walk was back to Lyddington.
The distance of approximately 9.5 miles, which is 3 miles or so more than our usual walks, and the heat started to test the stamina of some of us, but we all made it back.
We would like to make special mention of one of our walkers, David Cairns, who is 81 years young. He never fell back and stiles were no problem to him. An example to us all. A great day, well organised by George with wonderful scenery and good company.
