|Its many a young persons dream to
work on a front line fighter aircraft, like the Jaguar. Four students at Paston College
have been doing just that this year as part of their A level programme at the College. The
Engineering Education Scheme is a national initiative to encourage high-flying Maths and
Science students to consider a career in engineering. The four, Ian Beeden, Tom Limb,
Mathew Nicholson, and Kunsang Vincentz, were set a real life challenge by engineers at RAF
Coltishall. They were asked to come up with ideas on how to reduce tyre wear on the Jaguar
aircraft. After six months work, the team presented their solution at the EES Assessment
Day held at RAF Whatisham home of the RAF Search and Rescue B Flight 22 Squadron -
on April 21st. During the day the students first explained their solution to a panel of
engineers and then to a large audience of students, parents, teachers and engineers from
all over East Anglia. Their work was commended by RAF top brass in the person

the EES. I am very grateful for their support. I am also delighted with the outcome and
proud of all those who have taken part.

|Its that time of the year when many of
us decide to sell up and move house. Having recently made this decision I would like to
give my heartfelt thanks to all who helped my family and I through the trauma!
Goodbye to our old neighbours, we will miss you and good luck to the new residents.
If you enjoy living there as much as we did, then you're in for some special times ahead.
Special thanks go to Natalie Page in Watsons, who was able to treat me to a beaming
smile every time I walked in even though she must have thought I was some kind of Witch
from Hades. But beware Natalie, when we move again Ill be back! Thanks
too to Winters Removals, an excellent service which made the move so much easier on the
