|A BIT FROM ME
Dear *|MMERGE3|* ,
Welcome to our April newsletter on 'Mother's Day'
fine weather continues as does the demand on our regularly filled car
However, for newcomers, please,
please remember this really is an island. Yes, a road leads to
the island - 'Lindisfarne Causeway'. But, twice every day
the infamous North Sea floods over the causeway and you
are at risk if you attempt to negotiate it when the sea is in
flood. Last week there was yet another reminder to locals when
a horsebox vehicle became stranded on the causeway. Remote and
with vehicle swamped and almost entirely submerged in
saltwater the visitor had to be rescued from the refuge box.
Fortunately, this incident happened in
daylight; with good visibility; in fine weather and a
calm sea state. Regular visitors will know this is not always
the case. There are tables of crossing times at either
side of the causeway, on the Internet and in local newspapers.
Almost 800,000 visitors will cross safely to the island this
year. Please be one of them and not a coastguard incident
Whilst I say check the crossing
times...! Last month we pointed out a new safety issue
(Beal Shore) where concrete blocks now prevent vehicles from pulling-in to check
for safe crossing times on the Council's notice board. Our MP, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, has
offered to help in resolving the dispute between local landowners.
But for the time being the problem remains and drivers
should be aware that there is an almost blind-approach to this potential
Easter is now just over the horizon. Ever a focus for Pilgrims,
our churches are busilly preparing for the busiest part of their year. Before
long the Northern Cross pilgrimage will be wending their way across Holy Island
sands with their crosses held high and usually in full voice. If
you are coming too I hope it 'recharges your batteries' and you leave
us feeling fullfilled - and planning your next visit!
Thank you to all our contributors. We hope you enjoy our newsletter and
look forward to getting in touch again in May.
|HOLY ISLAND C-of-E FIRST
We've had another eventful month here at Holy
Island First School. In the classroom, our large map is filling up with features of the island. We
now have our school, St Cuthbert's Island, St Mary's Church, the Priory and
the castle in place. We used small pieces of flowery fabric to
make the award-winning Gertrude Jekyll garden and have added the Lough, some
green fields and some very cute cotton wool sheep.
World Book Day was a great success and we
were delighted to welcome parents into school along with Revd Sarah
Hills and Sam Quilty. The theme this year was to share
a story and we all enjoyed some of our old and new favourites!
The children dressed up as characters from their best loved stories and
took part in a book swap shop. We also had fun with
a 'reading at home in an unusual place' challenge.
We were delighted to welcome Dorinda Kealoha
from the National Marine Aquarium North East this week. Linking with
our animals and nature topic, Dorinda began with a Slimy Seas
assembly. The children learned that some under-sea animals produce
slime to protect themselves from predators or to help them to move
from place to place. In the Fantastic Fossils workshop, the children
become palaeontologists using tools to reveal a fossilised
plesiosaur which was hidden in sand and plaster. They enjoyed
finding the fossil and having a go at putting it back together.
Finally, the children became marine biologists as they took part in the Ocean Investigation workshop. There
were examples of sea creatures for the children to identify and compare and
they discovered where they live and what they eat. The children really
enjoyed the afternoon and learned so much! Dorinda was very impressed with
the level of knowledge and interest from the children.
The highlight of the month has to be the St
Cuthbert's Day celebration service here on the island. It was
wonderful to join together on the beach with parents and members of
the community to celebrate this special day led by Sarah, Revd
Rachel Poolman and Sam. The children have been learning about the
life of St Cuthbert and have been fascinated to discover that he was so in tune with nature
and animals. The children from Lowick came to join us and before the
service they came into school. We had thirty children in school and
it was a joy to see the classroom so full! Jane from
the Northumberland Gazette was there to record the event.
As we look forward to Easter, we have begun
to learn about the Easter Story. We will be telling the story with
lots of practical activities, stories and art. Spring
has sprung and our gardening projects continue. The children have been making the
most of the playing field - a big thanks to Brian for
the first cut of the season. We have noticed though, that there
are already a couple of Easter bunnies hopping around!
Holy Island Church of England First School
It's been a bit of a weather month, wind,
rain, snow and hail, then more sun and wind resulting in big seas and enforced
days ashore for boats. The one thing that just goes on uninterrupted
is the grass growth and I seem to spend more time at
home keeping the stuff under control.
The Islands sporting elite continue to regularly use the fitness equipment
and the Trustees are looking to expand facilities for the young and
not so young; more news later.
A series of meetings, some large, some small
have been held in the Hall as well as an all-day Birthday Gathering.
The great thing that the hall can offer is space for children
to play, sing and dance no matter what the weather and no
one is disturbed by the noise.
As the month ends we have
a planning meeting with a Family who wish to hold a pre-nuptial
Family Gathering; a potentially exciting event.
If you are looking for a worthwhile cause to
Support, please consider James Douglas. Many of you who came and
stayed at the Lindisfarne Hotel many years ago may remember
twins James & Christopher, two backroom boys who helped keep the Lindisfarne
ticking over. Both young men are working away from the Island. But
once an Islander, always an Islander.
James, when not working is a distance runner and as
well as other events, he is running in the Berlin Marathon Sunday
29 September 2019. He's running in aid of Cancer Research and deserves
support, his donation page is; https//fundraise.cancerresearch.org/page/jamess-giving-page-593
Additionally, his Family & Friends are holding a Coffee Morning in
the Hall on Tuesday 23 July 2019, all proceeds will sponsor James's
run on behalf of Cancer Research.
Please do not forget the
first Coffee Morning of the year will be held on 22 April
EASTER MONDAY. Help and bric-a-brac required.

I' m sure everyone is familiar with some of the beautiful
butterflies which grace the island and which will enliven
our gardens and providing colour in the dunes over the coming
These range from the brilliant Red Admirals
and Peacocks and relative newcomers, Speckled Wood and Comma, in
gardens to the spectacular orange and black Dark-green Fritillaries
and delicately shaded Common Blues seeking nectar from flowers along the dune paths. They're all wonderfully fascinating creatures
to watch and we are now at the start

Like a conjurer from a hat, Max suddenly
produced several little flat plastic pots containing some of the
most spectacularly colourful insects we'd ever seen. They were Elephant Hawk-moths in
vivid shades of crimson and olive which he'd collected
from a light trap in the back garden at Skylark that

One of my grand-daughters had been prompted
to give a field guide illustrating 1,600 of the larger species, the
so-called macro moths, which occur in Britain. There are also as
many again tiny micro moths out there, demonstrating the vast range
to be found. That compares with around 70 butterfly and
600 bird species which have occurred in Britain. It
seemed obvious from the start that mothing was not for the
The trap was assembled in the garage that
morning. It consisted of a square plywood box with a 15 watt light
tube stretched across the top. The light is designed to attract moths which, disorientated, flutter down two sloping plastic
sheets through a narrow gap into the bottom which
is lined with egg boxes to provide them with darkness and
The problem with getting a moth trap for
Christmas is trying it out as there are then hardly any moths
around. It was into March before it could be used in the back garden
at Crossgates. At first the results were modest. I remember that the
first species was Clouded Drab, the name aptly describing its nondescript appearance. The
second was much better, a Hebrew Character, so-called because
of its little black wing markings which really do resemble ancient

and range increased almost daily. There was always the thrill of checking each morning for something unexpected although I must
admit that when I found my first Elephant Hawk-moth

But the sheer range, variety and colour of
moths is absolutely staggering. Friends and neighbours, who have
shown an interest in that bright light in the garden at night, have
been amazed when I've taken moths to show them before release.
The typical comment has been; "I thought they were
all brown." Well, some are but others rival the butterflies for
As the numbers rose rapidly, I sometimes
found it a bit overwhelming, not to mention time-consuming in
sitting down, poring over the field guide and puzzling over
identities. Fortunately, I had lot of help and encouragement from Max, his Nature Guides colleague Fiona
Barclay, Mike Hodgson, an old birding friend whose photographs
often illustrate my articles, and from Tom Tams, the Northumberland moth

photographed mystery moth and texted for help. It was always quickly

After a couple of season trapping at
Crossgates, I was invited by Gary and Helen Scott to try out the trap
in their garden at the Palace field. Mature trees
and much more shrubbery immediately resulted in more new species being

the two sites. These included a national rarity, a silvery green

Rolling....Big Dune Style
Easter is a very special time on the island:
pilgrims carrying crosses over the sands, the calling of the church
bells and clumps of daffodils marking the arrival of spring.
But in our family, there's one Easter celebration that
brings out our MOST competitive side. It's the North East tradition
of egg rolling, involving hardboiled, rather than chocolate eggs.
If, like my husband, you're not from the
North East, chances are you've been missing out on this age-old
sporting challenge that's been passed down through the generations.
When my parents were kids, they grew up in
hilly Gateshead, full of steep banks that proved the perfect training ground for egg rolling.
Every Easter they'd line up with their friends to pit their
brightly painted and hopefully robust eggs against each other.
Eyeing up their opponents' offerings, the
name of the game was to try to roll their egg as far down the hill
as gravity and obstacles would allow - without it getting all
smashed up. Over the years, my parents honed their
skills. Having grown up on powdered eggs as war babies, every
entry was precious and they quickly became dab hands.
With so much skill in the family it was
perhaps inevitable that we'd become competitors too. From a very
early age, I remember struggling up the big sand dune (40 feet tall)
near Snook to line up on its summit. There we'd give our newly
decorated eggs a final check over before lying prone on our tummies
with our arms outstretched. Below lay the daunting assault course - clumps of
marram grass and a scattering of sharp stones that struck fear
into the heart of even the most experienced entrant.
For the uninitiated, it might seem as
if there's no skill involved. But we all secretly feel that
success is all down to the quality of our 'bowling'.
There are the spinners, the flickers, the pushers, the gentle
releasers... you get the picture. And of, course
for those early Easter's that come in March there's another
hazard - the weather. Who could forget the 'Beast from the
Sometimes there's a clear egg front runner.
But if two have made it all the way to the bottom intact then the
rules dictate that we bowl again. My mum, now in her 80s, is still up for
scaling the heights. But my dad has taken on the huge
responsibility of referee (currently without the assistance of VAR).
With such a competitive egg rolling family, it's
one of the trickier roles he's had to tackle.
However, once he's finally declared the
outright winner, it's time to celebrate - by eating our eggs of course. Perched on the wall
of a nearby ruined old house, we remove their cracked and
coloured shells, pass round the salt and tuck in.
Having been open to the public for the last 6
weeks or so we now find ourselves in a slightly familiar but also
(in the scheme of things quite unusual) position in that the Castle
will soon be stripping out one exhibition and replacing it with
The season started with a small exhibition
called Past Present Future which is fairly self-explanatory but
attempted to tell some stories that hadn't been told before. For the
last 49 years or so largely the same story has been told here so it has made for quite
a change in people's perception of the place. On 2 April the
new one opens, entitled Now You See Me which aims to play a little
on that very perception visitors have of the place,
and attempt then to tell stories which both emphasis and challenge
that mind-set; a Castle that's not really a castle on an island
that isn't always an island, rooms that were have had multiple uses over
the years, more than meets the eye - that sort of thing.
It has been great fun putting this together as we have been able to
use loads of historic information that hasn't previously been talked about, and also we
have been able to uncover new things in that process as well as making
use of discoveries made during the recent renovations. Each room will touch
on different themes and periods of time but won't necessarily relate to the
previous furnished arrangement. As I said last month we have brought back
a number of collections pieces which was done with an eye on this exhibition, however
the majority does remain in storage.
The Castle is recovering well - if that is
the right phrase - from the renovations but it might be that this
process takes longer than we thought. What wouldn't be right would
be to rush this by interfering too much, which does allow more
flexibility in our displays. There are plenty of great stories to
tell here and who knows what we might discover in the future. Just
last week for example I found reference to a plot in 1561 by the
Scottish government to occupy the Island with a large force, build
two forts to secure the harbour, and bring in hundreds of allied
ships from the continent ahead of an attack on Berwick! They'd even
made clay models of the proposed forts and had architects produce
construction drawings! We only know about this as the former Provost
of Edinburgh had sent a secret letter to Sir William Cecil (Queen
Elizabeth's secretary) and it made it into the records that way. You
can read the letter on the wonderful www.british-history.ac.uk
website, just search for 'Alexander Clark Holy
Island' - Clark was the Provost in the pay of Cecil - and I think
it is the fourth search result.
Anyway, if any residents want to come up and
see the new exhibition then we are having a private view on Friday
5th April at 15.00. Please let us know if you would like to come as
there will be refreshments : 01289 389244 or email email@example.com
should say as well that the shop has the back garden open
again and there are lots of new products inside too, handy if you need a
gift or just fancy a browse.

We have reached the equinox. Spring has sprung
- the first chiffchaffs calling their names in the hedgerows, fuzzy
drinker moth caterpillars emerging from hibernation, and frog spawn in great clumps in
the wet slacks in the duneland beyond the Straight Lonnen.
Yesterday a flock of around forty whooper swans flew in great
loops above Holy Island, white shapes against grey clouds -
perhaps orienting themselves for their spring migration back to Iceland.
The geese, too, are on the move.
Ground-nesting birds such as
skylark and meadow pipit are beginning to form territories and fulmars have returned to the
rocky ledges of the Reserve's only sea cliff. This month has
seen the last scrub bashes of the season, with teams of staff and
volunteers setting to with secateurs and loppers, and pitting our
weight against the roots of the willow scrub on the Snook.
We have been continuing to clean the Reserve's beaches and
duneland of litter, trundling a wheelbarrow across the dunes to
collect bulky items from the North Shore.
In the Rocket field, we are
at the start of a project working with Jimmy to improve
conditions for overwintering and breeding birds. Good numbers of teal
and oystercatcher have been present there over the winter period,
as well as lots of roosting gulls.
Shorebird season will soon be upon us -
sandwich terns have already been seen in the south of England, and
from the end of April onwards we will close off sections of beach
across the Reserve to provide refuge areas for little terns and
ringed plover to nest in without human or dog disturbance. Both
species are under threat and breeding success is in decline. We are
looking for volunteers to help us with our conservation efforts, to
assist with shorebird monitoring and public engagement. Lindisfarne
NNR are spearheading a Northumberland census of ringed plover and
are seeking volunteers to regularly check sections of coastline to
help us to monitor their numbers and breeding success. Please

Volunteers needed to help vulnerable shorebirds
A partnership of
conservation organisations is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to protect and monitor
vulnerable birds nesting along the coast this summer. These include the
endangered little terns, arctic terns and ringed plovers, which are collectively known
terns spend their winter on the west coast of Africa and return
to our coastline at the end of April. These rare birds
lays eggs on the beach and are very susceptible to human
disturbance, as well as predation and high tides, which can wash away
In Northumberland, little
terns mainly nest on the National Trust Long Nanny site in
Beadnell Bay and Natural England's Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve (NNR), which
stretches from Budle Bay in the south to Cheswick Black Rocks in
Katherine Dunsford is Lead Shorebird Warden at Lindisfarne National
Nature Reserve, where she will be responsible for shorebird monitoring, public
engagement and volunteer coordination. Katherine will recruit, train and support volunteers working
Katherine said: "I am really excited about
taking up this role; volunteers are essential for the protection of our
breeding shorebirds. Together with the team of wardens, shorebird volunteers will
talk to beach users to prevent them from accidently disturbing the
birds. This makes a huge difference to the breeding success of these
"We are looking for passionate nature
enthusiasts who enjoy talking to people and spending time along the beautiful
The other shorebird species of concern
is the ringed plover. This charismatic little wading bird also
lays eggs on the beach. Numbers of breeding ringed plovers
have dramatically declined and this year conservationists are
asking volunteers to carry out a survey of the whole
Northumberland coast to get a better idea of how many birds
there are and which areas are important for them.
Talking about the ringed plover surveys, Iain
Robson from the Northumberland Coast AONB Partnership said " Working with Natural England and National
Trust, we need to learn more about where these little birds are
nesting and how we can protect them in the future. There
is over 70 miles of coastline to survey so we are
absolutely reliant on volunteers to help us - we couldn't do it
"Ringed plover surveys will
involve walking along sections of the shore, looking and listening for
the birds and recording what you see - there are worse places

|FROM THE COMMUNITY OF AIDAN AND
Last month I
went to one of only two churches in Norfolk that are
named after our saint, Cuthbert, some forty of whose members
came to the island in September. I spoke about Saint
Cuthbert at two services and over an evening supper challenged
them to catch something of Cuthbert's vision, kindly heart, ceaseless prayer
and good death. The Community of Aidan and Hilda East
Anglia Group also met at St. Cuthbert's while I was there.
On my return I
took part in a Mindfulness Day at Edinburgh Central Hall.
Several people came to my book stall. Some of them like
the idea of DIY Holy Island Retreats where you give
yourself space to become mindful without engaging in any retreat programme.
Then I took a train to inner city Birmingham to a new
venture near the prison where I, along with the Bishop and
various others, blessed the new Yurt in the grounds of
Newbigin House. This work is led by Ash and Anji
Barker, who named their son after Aidan and lived for
several years in the slums of Bangkok. About twenty of these
young people are being recruited as Urban Changemakers, and some
of them are spending a week-end on the island this month.

We are on our way through Lent and looking ahead to Holy Week and
Easter. We have been journeying through these weeks of Lent, a time
for reflection and assessment of who we are and how we live our
lives with each other and with God. We celebrated St Cuthbert's Day
on March 20th with a joyful ecumenical service on the beach, with
fantastic input from our local Holy Island and Lowick Church of
England Infant School. In the evening, a dramatic reading of
the life of St Cuthbert written by Kate Tristram beautifully
deepened our sense of his life. Our Lent Course, a series of
discussions around 'A Peaceful Lent' has perhaps been especially
pertinent this year as we are faced with the terrorist attack in New
Zealand and the devastating effects on many lives and communities.
How can we best respond to this and other atrocities? Not to mention
the situation in the UK and Europe as we continue to deal with the
uncertainties and effects of Brexit. Bishop Christine has asked us
all to come together at this time to 'serve the common good'. She
'Together with the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, I am
therefore inviting you to mark the day [of Brexit] by joining in a
national prayer initiative to come together to share hopes and fears
and to pray, and to use the idea of encouraging people to use the
focus of three candles - lighting 'one for me, one for my
neighbour and one for our shared future together' to gather around.'
St Mary's Church is always open, so please do come in and light
candles, pray or to take some time for quiet reflection.'
We are also starting a monthly 'Prayers for Peace' jointly with
St Cuthbert's URC Centre. The first will be held at St Mary's at 5pm
