s the 2012 Olympic Games draws to a close there can be little doubt that ‘Team GB’ have acquitted themselves well. Leaving aside the ‘home team advantage’ there have been some spectacular results from our athletes and they are certain to have inspired the next generation. By all accounts cycle shops across the country are struggling to keep up with demand for top end racing machines. What will the Closing Ceremony have in store? It is titled ‘A Symphony of British Music’ celebrating the fact that music has been one of Britain’s strongest cultural exports over the past 50 years. Again there will be a cast of thousands and the Artistic Director Kim Gavin will no doubt have included some surprises. However the ceremony also contains a number of official elements; the parade of athletes which differs from the opening ceremony in that they march together not in national groups. This symbol of unity began at the Melbourne Games in 1956. There is the handover of the Olympic Flag to the next hosts, Rio de Janeiro in 2016, speeches and the extinguishing of the flame. It is bound to be an enthralling occasion. Somewhat less inspirational is the news that some elected members of NNDC’s Planning Committee have found yet another way to thwart the construction of a skatepark in Cromer. Is it any wonder young people are disillusioned by politicians? On a more positive note many of you will have just caught your breath after the fantastic Sheringham Carnival in time to dive into the extravaganza of the Cromer Carnival. Enjoy! The Crabline raised the subject of recognising Cromer Crab as a brand at the time closure of the Cromer Crab factory was announced. The consultation outlined below is for those directly involved in fishing and maintaining a sustainable crab fishery. However what do other Crabline readers think of Cromer Crab having a similar status to, say, champagne?

Cromer Protected Food Crab Status ?


ne of North Norfolk fisheries’ greatest assets is the famous Cromer Crab, but this is not an EU protection brand.

There is a considerable difference of opinion within the fishing industry regarding the benefits that would ensue from such brand protection, consequently a series of consultation events are to be held within the fishing industry and its supply chain in order that the North Norfolk Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) can better understand the needs of the fishery. Drop in Cromer Crab Consultation sessions have been organised by FLAG as follows: 13 August: at The Fleece, Wells-next-the-Sea, 16:30 - 19:30 14 August at The Dunstable Arms, Sheringham, 17:00 - 20:00 15 August at Merchant’s Place, Cromer, 18:00 - 21:00 16 August at The Haig Club, Mundesley, 19:00 - 22:00 The North Norfolk FLAG has been formed to deliver almost £2.4 million of investment for the benefit of the North Norfolk fishery. The overall aim of the FLAG programme is to contribute to a sustainable future for the North Norfolk fishery through a broad range of interventions over the next three years. Visit for full details of the programme and its projects.

Bodham Horticultural Show Entries down but profits up – another wonderful show Harry Bruford reports on the popular annual show


he Show was another success despite entries being down from 263 in 2011 to 207 this year. The judges were impressed with the high quality of all the exhibits considering the wet weather during the growing season. The very wet season resulted in no Tomatoes or Gladioli being entered for the show. The Horticultural Show raised £428, up on £400 raised in 2011. The money will go to Bodham good causes together with funds raised by Bodham Big Weekend and Rock Bodham. The improved income was due to generous sponsorship from local businesses and support from parishioners and visitors - hoping for your support in 2013.

Heather Paterson receives one of many cards and gifts at her farewell

Heather ‘packs away the chalk’ for the last time


uxton Primary School said farewell to Teacher Heather Paterson at the end of term on Wednesday 18th July when she ‘packed away the chalk’ for the last time; Heather has been educating Buxton’s youngsters for more than 20 years. “This school and the wonderful children have been such a big part of my life for so long,” said Mrs Paterson at the special assembly held to mark the occasion. The children sang songs, signed a card, presented a number of gifts and the older children recalled many memories of Mrs Paterson’s time at the school. They were also joined by former headteachers and staff members, governors, Heather’s family and many of the pupil’s parents. Heather recalled times when the school was smaller than today and also much bigger when children from RAF families came to the school. The celebration of Heather’s career concluded with a cream tea. In her speech during the celebration Headteacher Deborah Leahy said “Heather will always be remembered in our school with such affection. She has given many children a happy and secure first year in school, been an inspiration and support to new staff, and a wonderful friend and colleague to me personally, and we all wish her much joy.”

Crabline Book Review

East Anglian Coast By David Brandon


ISBN 978-1-84868-256-6 Amberly Publishing 128pp 235 x 165 mm £12.99

his book covers the East Anglian coast from the vicinity of Kings Lynn to Burnham on Crouch. It is not, as the introduction states clearly, a guide book. It is however an interesting and informative, perhaps idiosyncratic, journey along the coast, guided by the author David Brandon. Along the way he captures the essence of this coast as he describes not just the land and coast but points out items of historical interest, the industries, local heroes and villains, myths, legends and notable buildings and deliberately gives the reader the opportunity to make their own discoveries.



David Brandon is not a East Anglian born and bred but has come to know the area well; it might explain the lack of maps, useful to those not so well acquainted with the area, in this entertaining and very readable book. The author writes with an engaging blend of humour, succinct description and great affectionate for his chosen subject, the understated beauty and character of this part of Britain’s east coast. This is a great ‘starter’ for exploring the diversity, beauty and history of the East Anglian Coast.

Carry large cakes in cake tins. Put the cake on the lid and cover with the rest of the tin, rather than the usual way round - this will make it easier to lift out. Slice cakes at the stand, so they don't dry out. Take cling film and greaseproof paper with you to wrap slices, plus a couple of knives. Tape a list of ingredients to each cake tin. Cherries If you use cherries whole, they will end up at the bottom of your cake. If you want them scattered through the sponge, try quartering or chopping them.

Happy Summer Holiday Everyone! A Lifeguard watches over the beach at Sheringham - can you see where its safe to swim?

Children should always go in the sea with an adult. Airbeds, inner tubes & other floatation devices can easily be carried or blown into deep water and may not keep you afloat.

Beware of the sun. Sun reflecting off the water or off sand can intensify the burning sun rays. You might not feel sunburned when the water feels cool and refreshing but the pain will catch you later. Remember to reapply sunscreen frequently and cover up much of the time. Don’t forget your hat and UV protection sunglasses. Drink plenty of fluids!

Water safety from the coast Holiday season is my favourite time of the year. The coast is packed with holiday makers and local people enjoying the sunshine at the beach.

Water safety When the weather is hot there is no better way to cool off and have fun than a dip in water. But you must be aware of the dangers of water. At the beach Special flags and notices may warn you of danger, know what the signs mean and do what they tell you. A Red flag means it is unsafe to be in the water. Never play in the water when a red flag is flying. A red and yellow flag means Lifeguard on patrol. The safest place to swim or play is between the flags. Black and white flags. No swimming between these flags. The area is used by surfers and windsurfers.

If you don’t know the river or lake very well don’t jump straight in, there may be obstacles or dangers you can’t see beneath the surface. Always check with other people swimming in the area. Never fool around or run beside water you might fall in. Follow the safety advice and have a great summer.

The sea isn’t the only place water is dangerous. Remember swimming in a river, lake, canal or the sea is different from swimming in a pool. Never swim alone. All moving water has under currents, which are dangerous to even the Bye for now strongest swimmer. Lorna Law If you find yourself caught in a current, don’t panic and don’t fight PC Lorna Law

Library August events


the current. Try to swim parallel to the shore until you are able to get out of the current, which is usually a narrow channel of water. Gradually try to make your way back to shore as you do so. If you’re unable to swim away from the current stay calm and float with the current. The current will usually slow down then you can swim back to shore. Even a strong swimmer who tries to swim against a strong current will soon get worn out. Beware of undercurrent dragging you under. Swim backstroke to bring your legs to the surface of the water.

arlier this month children from Northrepps Primary School visited London - a truly amazing experience which included seeing all the famous London sights and the newly completed Olympic Park.

The children agreed they had an 'awesome time' and particularly enjoyed their cruise along the River Thames when they were able to see Tower Bridge raised and lowered to allow a tall barge to pass through. Then witness the Olympic rings descend too! Riding the Docklands Light Railway from Pudding Mill Lane Station, with its great views of the Orbit and Olympic Stadium, meeting 'Dippy the Dinosaur' at the Natural History Museum, riding the London Eye and having a private tour of the Houses of Parliament with our MP Norman Lamb and his Secretary Ruth Gripper was a fantastic introduction to our capital and a real contrast to life in rural North Norfolk. A truly memorable experience which the children can now revisit each time London appears on their TV screens!

North Norfolk Pride Beach Chill-Out at Cromer

Trifire perform at the Pride Beach Chill Out

North Norfolk Photographic Society The North Norfolk Photographic Society celebrated another successful year with their Annual Exhibition in Holt at the end of July. Included officially this year as part of the Holt Festival Fringe, the event drew around 300 visitors - and sold around twice as many raffle tickets as were sold during the previous year’s show! One of the features of the Society’s Exhibition is to invite visitors to vote for their favourite photograph. The result is the stunning print from Judy Knights, LRPS, entitled Winter Morning at Felbrigg Lake. This will be the prize in next year’s raffle. The raffle winner this year was a visitor and their prize has been posted. Another feature of the Exhibition - for Club Members and their guests is an informal gathering after the public show ends, when distinguished judges comment on the images (criticism always being a constructive process) and pick a ‘best in show’ from the photographs displayed. The judges this year were a well known Norfolk double act, David Hennessey and Alan Livingstone from Kings Lynn. They selected a portrait by John Cucksey, ARPS, titled ‘Sammy the Driver’; a handsome portrait of an African driver on safari. North Norfolk Photographic Society meets on alternate Wednesdays at the Loades Hall - behind Holt Methodist Church. Visitors are most welcome. Further information can be found either from, or Secretary Judy Knights on 01263 825418.




espite being interrupted by a heavy thunder shower and competing with the Olympics, the event was a success drawing a crowd of at least 150 supporters to the public BBQ Beach in Cromer. With an orderly retreat to the Red Lion Hotel when the rain started, activities and entertainment continued well into the evening with many passers-by stopping to watch the pyrotechnics act performed by Norwich based Trifire, in the Cllr Keith Johnson rain, on the beach. Leader of the North Norfolk District Council, Cllr Keith Johnson, opened the celebrations and commented that “North Norfolk Pride is an important celebration”. In his opening address the Chairman of North Norfolk Pride, Pieter Wessels, said “This is our celebration of the wonderful diversity that is the human condition. As organisers we hope that it will be a chance for you to turn to someone you don't yet know and say – that was fun, lets do it again!” Cromer Town Council also showed their support on this special day by flying the rainbow flag from their recently restored flag-pole. Cllr Scott Eastwood commented that he was particularly pleased that the Town Council could support the event in this way. North Norfolk Pride is open to anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual or Trans (LGBT) or is a friend, family or supporter of LGBT people and who lives, works or identifies with the North Norfolk area. North Norfolk Pride exists to promote and celebrate the lives, aspirations and creativity of LGBT people in North Norfolk and to overcome any kind of intolerance or prejudice. NNP meet formally at least once a month, usually the first Tuesday of the month, at various locations, with regular socials at the Red Lion Hotel/Pub in Cromer on all other Tuesday evenings. More information is available from our web-site (, or on Facebook.

We meet on Tuesdays at 1.30pm at The Pilgrim’s Shelter Trimingham. At each meeting we are all weighed and there is a talk about weight management. We all work to support each other, passing on tips and recipes while enjoying a cup to tea or coffee.

Jubilee Service for Norman Lamb

O And now Ladies and Gentlemen The fantastic finale to mr h mouse’s magic, which began on page 8.

n Wednesday 25th July 2012 North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb joined Staff and Service Users at Age UK North Norfolk’s Day Centre as part of the Government’s Jubilee Hour campaign, which aims to recognise the Queen’s 60 years of public service, by encouraging MP’s to undertake at least 60 minutes of volunteering or an act of goodwill. He helped to serve lunch at the Day Centre, and spent time talking to Service Users afterwards. Age UK North Norfolk’s Day Centre is based in Sheringham, and offers high quality care, delicious home cooked meals, plus bathing and daily activities. Reasonable rates are charged for a half or full day, just a bath, or lunch only.

Erratum - Age UK Crabline Issue 250 The last paragraph of the article on planning for an emergency in Issue 250 was incomplete. Here is the paragraph reprinted in full:

In Case of Emergency (ICE) Emergency services will look in your mobile phone contact list for emergency contacts. Start each entry with ICE and then add the name and number of the person you want contacted. You can add multiple entries by naming them ICE1, ICE2, etc. Please pass ICE information to all age groups. We can have an emergency situation whatever age we are.

Melbourne House Country Estate, hidden away on the outskirts of North Walsham, offers a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern living. You can relax outside on a sunny day in our beautiful gardens or, if a little chilly, retreat indoors to our splendid Georgian tea room for tea and freshly baked cakes, or a lunchtime special, and on Sundays for our old fashioned Sunday Roast. The estate is also a venue for weddings (we are licensed for the ceremony), conferences, training rooms, wakes, also private parties (birthdays, anniversaries, work celebrations etc). From the Old Barn to The Aviary or the Courtyard Hall we have the ideal location for all your requirements.
