From the Editor

Mark Danson-Hatcher

The Crab and Lobster Festival certainly lived up to its billing and provided families with a great weekend of entertainment. Consequently it is a cruel irony that Youngs have announced the closure of The Cromer Crab Company following this celebration of local crab and lobster. There was of course the usual ‘hand wringing’ press release which, when boiled down, simply means Sue Southwell the company doesn’t feel it is making Advertising enough profit from the Cromer factory. sue@crabline.org The Cromer factory is modern, has, according to Youngs, a highly committed and well motivated work force, and is ideally located to take full advantage of local shellfish and provide a genuine ‘Cromer Crab’ cachet but apparently still needs to close. At a time when major food retailers are straining every sinew to present us with proof of origin, ‘specialist’ producers and champion quality, Youngs decision is difficult to follow. When they next enjoy crab or lobster, perhaps at a meal celebrating a bonus award, will Youngs directors think about the 109 people in this area, as well as the many others at the plants they are closing, their decision has affected? Efficiency is now a word that has been mangled by ‘PR’. Take the recent Big Society Fund announcement by NNDC . Good news for the bids that have been successful, but why not make a comprehensive press release including the successful bids? Well, with so little good news to give us this is obviously going to be spread thinly - but is that efficient? It is one way of doing more with less. Fortunately we have a Constitutional Monarch as Head of State and the Diamond Jubilee is time to recognize we are living in the reign of a second Good Queen Bess.

Fly the Flag - correctly The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games are certain to prompt an increase in the display of our national flag, properly called The Union Flag but we tend to refer to its other acceptable name The Union Jack. However it is important to follow some simple rules to ensure a statement of national pride or support doesn’t turn into an embarrassment. Here is the Crabline Quick Guide to displaying and flying flags. The Union Flag is the national flag of the United Kingdom, the Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories. The first Union Flag, created in 1606, combined the flags of England and Scotland. The modern Union Flag dates from 1801 when St Patrick’s Cross was added to represent Ireland, at which point it became possible to fly the flag upside down. There is no law governing the use of flags in the UK and the Union Flag has become the national flag by custom and practice not statute. Flag Etiquette has also developed from a combination of custom and practice, elements of constitutional law and heraldic rules. The national flags of the UK (Union Flag and the flags of England, Scotland and Wales) should be displayed only in a manner befitting a national emblem; they should not be displayed in a position inferior to any other flag or ensign. It is improper to use national flags as a table or seat cover or as a masking or screen for boxes, barriers or the space between a platform, stage or dias and the floor or ground. Currently there are are many fabrics and other items that appear to use the Union Flag but if you look closely they avoid offence by not using the full combination of elements of the Union Flag or by not using the recognized colours of each part, consequently they are not ‘national flags’. The use of national flags to cover a monument or statue or plaque for an unveiling ceremony is considered wrong. Flying the Flag Flags may be flown on every day of the year, although there are some restrictions in Northern Ireland. Flags are normally flown between sunrise and sunset. They can be flown at night but should be illuminated. No permission is needed to fly national flags and they are excluded from most planning and advertising regulations BUT flagpoles of any form are not. National flags should never be flown in a worn, damaged or soiled condition. The Union Flag has a correct way up. In the half of the flag nearest the flagpole the wider diagonal stripe must be above the red diagonal stripe. The reason for this is that Scotland’s St Andrew’s Cross takes precedence over Ireland’s St Patrick’s Cross. It is improper to fly the flag upside down - at sea this is also a distress signal.

Dear Editor, I boarded the Norwich to London train intending to travel to Manningtree to have a look around the Hall. However upon arrival and asking directions I was told there was no Manningtree Hall. I then wondered why the Crabline a North Norfolk magazine would direct readers to Essex? On a different note readers will be aware of the profusion of Alexander plants: One of England’s forgotten vegetables, Alexanders are at their most magnificent in April, their stately stems thick and tall on verges and grassy banks. Alexanders (Smyrnium olusatrum) love the coast and grow in greatest profusion within a few miles of the sea, though isolated patches thrive even far inland, often close to monastic sites, where it was once cultivated. Has any reader eaten this vegetable?

Does any reader have a recipe for "Norfolk sausages" I believe cooked in milk and mustard? As I recall very tasty! Regards, Robin Woodruff New Costessey Norwich PS Yes, Crabline goes to Costessey. Dear Robin, You are quite right to question us ‘sending’ you to Essex. I understand h mouse was involved in this. He had been speaking to a cousin in Essex and thought the title looked better. Fortunately he didn’t amend the correct name Mannington to Manningham, which is in W Yorks! I hope Manningtree wasn’t too disappointing. Ed.

Dear Sir As someone who obviously has his finger on the pulse of what is happening around North Norfolk. Have you any news about the Cromer Road Train? Is it going to run this year? Thanks Colin Dear Colin, As you know the Cromer Road Train was bought back by Mr Tonks, a midlands based businessman, who has interests in similar seasonal transport at other resorts. The Cromer Road Train is fully operational, but currently in storage, and is offered for sale. Potential operators require suitable PSV qualification. At the time of writing there have not been any successful offers to purchase and it is very uncertain that we will see the Cromer Road Train operating this season. Ed.

Hello My name is Mary Copeman, and on the day of the coronation, I was 5 years old and living in Overstrand. To celebrate the occasion, a fete was held on the cricket field in Overstrand and all the village children participated in a fancy dress parade. My mother made my costume from Union Jack printed crepe paper, along with parasol and accessories. I am enclosing the photo in case you would like to print it in your Crab Line edition for the Coronation. I say this, because I have read that Overstrand plans on duplicating the celebrations from 1953, with the fancy dress parade on the cricket field. I thought you may like to share this photo with your readers. Mary Clark (nee Copeman). Dear Mary Thank you for sharing your memory of the Coronation. I have placed your photograph on page 4. Ed.

Curtain Up at the Crabster The third Crab and Lobster Festival launched with a Variety Show at Cromer’s Pavilion Theatre. We were welcomed by the Town Crier who introduced compere Olly Day and Festival President Hilary Thompson who provided a crowd pleasing double act as they attempted to tell us about the week-end’s programme, much amusement and diversion along the way - very funny. Olly Day is an outstanding entertainer with a unique style combining singing, magic and a large helping of humour. His routines were well judged and included a ’volunteer’ (who didn’t) assistant from the audience. Diane proved to be an excellent accomplice and a great foil and joined in a really daft dance (poor lady) all of which made a hilarious sketch. Her efforts were rewarded with a cuddly lobster and much appreciation from the audience. Mr Roy Davenport, a magician of many waistcoats, gave us some intriguing, fast fingered and complex routines which commanded attention as did 15 year old Maria Wills from Wroxham with some calm and classy opera. Such a big voice from such a slim young lady. Marlene’ School of Dance presented some much loved classical ballet with an elegant performance from her award

the same direction, not simply zig-zagged across the street. Flat against a surface Union Flag hung horizontally or vertically; the broad white diagonal should be uppermost in the top left corner. For other flags, if hung vertically, the edge that would normally be the top of the flag should be on the left for example ensigns that have the union flag in the upper left corner.

In front of and on a Building When there are two or more flag poles the senior flag should be flown from the left-most flag pole seen when facing the main entrance of the building. If one flagpole is higher than others the senior flag must be flown from it.

Double flagging With only one flagpole available it is permissible to fly the senior flag above a junior flag but only if both are British for example The Union Flag above the national flag of England Scotland or Wales or a county or town flag. The two flags should be separated by about 12” (30 cm).

In procession The senior national flag always leads a single file. When two or more flags are carried side by side the senior flag is always at the righ-side of the line facing the direction of movement (the left of an observer watching the line approach).

The proper disposal of flags When a flag become unserviceable it should be destroyed in a dignified way; tearing or cutting into strips that no longer resemble the original flag. It is permissible to dispose of a flag by burning it in private.

With crossed flags Whenever crossed the senior national flag should be on the left of the observer facing the flags; its staff must be in front of the other flag. Suspended vertically above a street All flags must be hung in the same direction. Strictly long lines of bunting should be cut to ensure all flags face in

This quick guide concentrates on the celebratory use of flags. Other areas of etiquette including half-masting, vehicles and as a pall for a coffin will be covered in another issue.

For the weeks ahead you now have the information to fly our national flags and ensigns correctly as well as with pride.

Aylsham is a market town. Monday’s a busy day, Buses come from round about, All meet up, pass time of day. Some of the shops have closed or moved, The plumber’s one for sure, Post Office is in Budgen’s now, The auctions’s changed, now indoor. Of course we now have Tesco there, With changes good and bad, Small shops do add character, When forced to close it’s sad. We’re not local, we love the Norfolk ways, We have a caravan, No small shops are left back home, Support them while we can. Brenda Weston

Diamond Jubilee Chicken There have been a number of revivals of Coronation Chicken, the dish devised by Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume to celebrate the Queen’s coronation in 1953. This adaptation brings the classic dish right up to date for your Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Don’t forget you can still take advantage of the chicken fillet offer at Groveland Farm Shop (with your Crabline Voucher). Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil 1 heaped tbsp curry paste 4 spring onions, sliced 1 tbsp tomato puree Pinch of Saffron (soaked in hot water for 5 minutes) 120 ml mayonnaise 120 ml creme fraiche or greek yogurt 6 cooked chicken breasts or other cooked chicken sliced/diced into suitably sized pieces Grated lime zest 4 tbsp roughly chopped mint and coriander 3 tbsp pomegranate seeds Method 1. Heat oil and curry paste in a small pan and stir in onions. Cook until onions are soft then remove from heat. Stir in tomato puree followed by saffron and water, leave to cool. 2. Mix contents of pan with the mayonnaise and creme fraiche/yogurt, stir in the chicken. Taste and check for seasoning, add a little lime zest for more impact (this can be done the day before, keep in the fridge, the flavours will improve). 3. To serve fold chopped herbs into mixture (save some to scatter over). Place on serving dish scatter remaining chopped herbs and pomegranate seeds over to garnish. This recipe serves 6-8 or 12 as a sandwich or roll filling. (Buckingham Palace will be serving Indian Lager to accompany a similar dish)

Pier Crabbing Championships Photo John Worrell

The 2012 World Pier Crabbing Championships were held at Cromer Pier on Saturday 19 May. This prestigious event attracts individuals and teams from across Norfolk and beyond. Competitors from London, Essex, the midlands and north-west began arriving during the week for acclimatisation and final prechampionship preparations. Most competitors felt a combination of bait choice and equipment suited to the conditions on the day would be fundamental to success, particularly in view of the unsettled weather forecast. Although local knowledge provided some advantage, this was offset this offset, to some extent, by the pitch ballot which introduced an element of chance for all. Defending Champion Sammie Bruton said ‘to some extent it will be the luck of the draw’. With the Crab and Lobster Festival already underway there was a keen sense of excitement, fun and, for some, a few pre-match nerves as competitors gathered, registered and readied themselves for the first session which began shortly after

12

11.00am. In many respects the first session was the most difficult with the now steady WNW-NW wind over the last of the out-going tide making conditions at the lowest numbered piches, nearer the S end of the pier, difficult. Officials had sensibly set all pitches along the E side of the pier, providing shelter for competitors, but lines were exposed to the full force of the wind below the pier deck and needed to be heavily weighted to ensure they reached the seabed; many competitors needed to rethink weight and line-length combination. The first session ended shortly after midday and it was clear that the 2012 Championships would be seriously affected by weather conditions as the catch rate of just three crabs was very low. It was hoped that catch rate might improve with the in-coming tide. Although it improved it was very inconsistent. With slightly better conditions larger crabs were caught, the first, a fine but smallish specimen of 6cm, was overtaken when Kyle from Morecambe landed a

more substantial 9 cm example which proved to be the winner of the ‘largest caught’ category. Putting in a very consistent performance throughout the day secured overall victory for the defending Champion Sammie Bruton who has now gained considerable expertise and enabled him to hold off the machine-like efficiency of the Mighty Chumcannon Team. This highly organised team included a line handling team with substantial back-up including a bait chef. Choice of bait was varied across the competition and impossible to correlate to performance, although the winner consistently used round fish. This really was a Championship of five sessions with no clear winner until the close of the final session. Congratulations to Sammie and Kyle and all who took part, particularly in the demanding conditions. It was good to see so much crabbing talent out on the pier, which indicates the sport has a promising future.

Medals Galore For Mill School of Gymnastics

Melbourne House Country Estate Tea Rooms Open 8:00 to 16:00 Daily

01692 500917 Melbourne House Country Estate offers a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern living hidden away on the outskirts of North Walsham. You can relax outside on a sunny day in our beautiful flower gardens, or if a little chilly, retreat indoors to splendid Georgian rooms. The Georgian Tea-Room is situated on the ground floor of the Hotel and provides fresh home-cooked food with a daily Specials Hot Lunch, and a Roast dinner on Sundays.

On Sunday 20th May, 8 gymnasts from The Mill School of Gymnastics, based at Northrepps and Aylsham, joined others from across the region at Waveney Gym Club, Lowestoft for the Jess's Gems competition. This was a Women's Artistic Apparatus competition comprising work on the Floor, Vault, Beam and Bar. Each of the Mill SoG team performed on all 4 pieces and put in their best against very tough competition. The Mill School competitors brought home a Bronze and a Silver on Vault in 2 different age groups with Emily Haslam taking the Gold for the 8/9 age group and Amy Hannant achieving the Gold in the 12+ group; a Bronze and 2 Silvers on Bars; a Bronze and 5 Silvers on Beam across all the age groups with CJ Glover achieving Gold for the 12+'s and 2 Bronze and a Silver on Floor with CJ collecting another 12+ Gold on this apparatus. A haul of 18 medals is an excellent result for a recreational club amongst the competitive and intermediate groups.

with PC Lorna Law While out on the Crabbeat this week I walked past the new Cromer Hospital. The hospital its elf looks wonderful.

Trampolining It looked great fun so I could not resist changing into some slacks and a t-shirt and having a go myself. It was brilliant. Thank you Amelia and Sophie.

But they are still working hard preparing the area at the front of the hospital building. This is called a building site. It is well fenced off from members of the public.

Can you guess who jumped the highest!

But not all building sites are as safely secure and with the school holidays fast approaching Iwanted to remind you that building sites are very dangerous places to play in or near.

Hopefully they will invite me back again for another go.

They are full of hazards which could seriously hurt you.

You can email me with your story and even add a photo too:

Around a building site you will see warning signs to alert the workmen of the danger in each area. But there can be unseen dangers such as: •

Trip hazards.

Holes in the ground you could fall into.

Being hit by falling materials

Large moving vehicles

Maybe you would like to share your favourite outdoor fun activity with the readers of CRABBEAT.

Chemicals

Electric cables

Anyone entering a building site must wear a hard hat, to protect their head, and high visibility jackets so they can be seen. Remember a building site is not a playground. My young friends Amelia and Sophie invited me to see their favourite outdoor play activity -

The SRB Gardening Diary More news from the SRB allotment project Over the last few weeks we seem to be digging for England! Jack says we will soon be through to China. All this hard work is starting to pay off as it is now looking brilliant. The two Jacks, Charley, Morgan and Adam have eventually finished putting in the raised beds ready for planting – it was quite tricky lining them up. As the weather turned cold and wet we took the opportunity to plant up our seeds. This year we are trying courgettes, cabbages, brussel sprouts, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkins, sweetcorn, herbs and sunflowers. To give them an early start we have placed them in our greenhouse at school – we’ve just got to remember to water them. Later in the year we will plant carrots, runner beans, beetroot and peas straight in the beds

along with lettuce and summer salads. After Easter we planted potatoes, onions and garlic. Victoria helped Mr Greenwood plant the strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrents and blueberries so we should be having a ‘fruitful’ summer. These will need a cage to protect them from hungry birds. We took a deckchair up for Mrs Gilman so she could have a rest even though she doesn’t do a lot when she is there anyway – bad back excuse.
