Eric Lewis of Rosemary Lane At School in 1926 is now 95..

Eight years on Memory Lane

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

•Eric Lewis.

•Eric Lewis.


A POEM based on memories of growing up in Stroat has seen the light of day after eight years.

Eric Lewis wrote A Trip Down Memory Lane in 2007 but it was only two weeks ago the final verse ‘came to him’.

Mr Lewis, who is 95, moved to Luton in Bedfordshire in 1946 after a friend told him there was work available in the town. He had just returned from a few months in Canada where he went after leaving the army at the end of World War Two.

Mr Lewis settled in the town and went on to get married and have two children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He said: “A Trip Down Memory Lane is about my memories of growing up in Stroat and although I wrote it eight years ago I have never been able to complete the final verse until the lines came to me a couple of weeks ago.

“I was reciting the poem while sat in the chair at home and it literally just came to me, I was so pleased.

“The standard of education in our little school was exceptionally high. We learned a bit about practically everything. I like to think of my poem as a tribute to ‘our governess’ Mrs Baldwin. She was very strict but very fair and also kind. She taught me mental arithmetic and that stood me in good stead in later life.”

He added: “My heart has never left the Forest of Dean.”

Mr Lewis is currently learning Spanish and set himself the goal of singing several songs at his 95th birthday party in front of around 40 people.

His elderly sister Cath still lives in the family home in Stroat.

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

By W Eric Lewis

I sit in my chair and close my eyes,
And take a trip down memory lane,
And once again I am a boy,
With n’er an ache or pain.

And I walk to the top of Rosemary Lane,
On a glorious summer morn,
And I pass a spot so dear to me,
Rose Cottage, where I was born.

I pass the little grey stone school,
Where I learned to read and write,
Mrs Baldwin was our governess,
She gave us homework every night.

She taught us how to show respect,
And never answer back,
And if you really misbehaved,
With the cane you got a whack.

And I walked to the church at Tidenham Chase,
Where on Sunday we went to pray,
And I visit the little churchyard,
Where at rest our parents lay.

And I walk across the common,
Where decreed in bygone days,
That folk were allowed to put,
Their animals out to graze.

I see the new ferns springing up,
They’ll grow so green and tall,
But soon they’ll turn to bracken,
For bedding in the fall.
I’ll walk past broom and gorse and heather,
And here and there I’ll see a hole,
Where long ago some folk had dug,
To find some outcropped coal.

I’ll sit on a rock by the “Beacon Ash”,
Near to ancient fir trees,
I’ll feel the warmth of the early sun,
And the kiss of a westerly breeze.

And I’ll gaze at the vast panorama,
Spread out before my eyes,
I’ll see the Cotswolds in the distance,
Where the horizon meets the skies.

Down below I see “Sabrina”,
With her treacherous rapid tide,
I’ll see black seaweed covered rocks,
And sand banks long and wide.

Tall ships plied the river once,
Despite the dangerous sands,
Bringing wheat and many other things,
From distant, far off lands.

War came in nineteen thirty-nine,
And we served in foreign parts,
But this land between two rivers,
Was ever in our hearts.

Now back down memory lane I’ll go,
Not in sadness or in sorrow,
If all goes well, I’ll sit in my chair,
And do it again tomorrow.

Rosemary Lane, Stroat – Blocked By Lorry!

Rosemary Lane, Stroat – Blocked By Lorry!

 STROATForest of Dean 

..

Lorry blocks
Rosemary Lane,
Stroat

•The lorry stuck in Rosemary Lane, Stroat.


A NARROW lane was blocked after a lorry got stuck when the driver followed advice from a sat-nav device.

A sign has been put at the junction of Rosemary Lane and the A48 in Stroat warning drivers of large vehicles not to use the single track road.

The articulated lorry from the Midlands got stuck last Thursday (April 9) and was eventually removed the following day.

A resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “The lorry caused considerable damage to verges, walls, trees and dislodged rocks which in turn caused serious damage to the underside of a van.

“The lorry was travelling up Rosemary Lane despite the road sign saying unsuitable for HGVs.

“The incident was witnessed by several residents – the driver was heard to say it was not his fault it was his sat-nav.”

DISTRICT COUNCIL SHAMBLES

DISTRICT COUNCIL SHAMBLES

The thoughts of a Forest resident as published on the internet!

Saturday, 28th July 2012

It seems such a long time ago that we elected a hung council in the Forest of Dean – believe it or not its only 14 months and what a shambles we have had to put up with ever since. They almost make the Westminster government look well organised they are so bad.

 

  • Despite a 7000 strong petition and many representations against introducing car parking charges they were introduced and started wrecking our town centres on 1st July.

 

  • The cost of the new bins for the waste collection system was £834,755 and to advertise the system the council has so far spent £91,705. Judging by the confusion in Cinderford this week they’ll be spending a lot more in trying to explain the system.

 

  • The Cinderford Regeneration scheme is being promoted by the council despite the fact that it will have a massive detrimental effect on other parts of the area, in particular Berry Hill/Five Acres.

 

In some cases the Labour Group and the Independents support the 5 ringleaders who make up the Cabinet (all Cons). There are some notable exceptions but at the moment too few to make enough of a difference.

 

Do we really have to wait 3 more years to get a council that listens to the people of the Forest of Dean? Wouldn’t it be better for all if they resigned now and allowed us to vote for people with common sense that we need to sort out these dreadful mistakes.

 

To slightly misquote Cromwell “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of the Forest of Dean, go.”

 

Colin Guyton

STROAT + FoD: ‘Fuel prices could finish us’ – Chepstow haulage firm

‘Fuel prices could finish us’ – Chepstow haulage firm

6:20pm Friday 21st January 2011 in Gwent newsPhotograph of the AuthorBy Melissa Jones

A PARTNER in a Chepstow haulage firm fears rising fuel prices may be the final nail in the coffin for the business.

Dave Bollen, of Stroat Transport, said in the last ten years since the business started, it has gone from profit to just scraping by due to diesel prices topping 130p per litre.

This means having enough diesel to carry out their work for local firms, costs £1,000 per month, per vehicle.

The company has three lorries and one full time driver, delivering construction and agricultural products to different parts of the UK.

Mr Bollen said at first they were making a decent profit and could invest back in the business, but this is no longer possible.

He said: “The main problem is not being able to pass fuel increases on. We are not going to be running the business for nothing.”

As well as the haulage side of things, Mr Bollen uses farmland in Stroat to produce wheat and oil seed rape for large firms and he said the tractors are also affected by the high fuel prices.

On Tuesday, Newport haulage firm Bevan and Sons Ltd told the Argus they plan to close at the end of the month due to the cost of fuel.

The family business, which started in 1908, can no longer afford to carry out work, as it is now costs £5,000 per month extra.
