from the editor Well, what a lovely summer it has been and, thankfully, the sun stayed shining for this year’s Aylsham Show. Our front page and page 4 is dedicated to this year’s event.

Gay Webster Editor editor@justregional.co.uk @justeditor 01263 731520 Distribution: distribution@justregional.co.uk Advertising: sales@justregional.co.uk

Here’s a blast from the past, and there’s more great pictures on page 12 this issue. We featured two long-standing members of the band last issue and that prompted Aylsham heritage Centre to dig out the images for us just ahead of the band’s 90th birthday celebrations. Bet there are few faces you might recognise. We hope all those going back to school and college are settling back into their routine and that they achieved the results they wanted. There’s the exam news from Aylsham High on page 11.

Sun shines for Aylsham Show The Aylsham Show attracted the crowds again on Bank Holiday Monday proving that the show is still appealing people of all ages. The weather was perfect for this country show but unfortunately due to gusty winds high above the main attractions, two World War One aircraft were unable to take part in the event.

The Book Hive Literary Evenings October 2018 - Aylsham and Norwich

Among the Wolves of Court: The Untold Story of Thomas and George Boleyn “Thomas and George Boleyn – the father and brother of Anne Boleyn and heads of one of the most powerful infamous dynasties in English history. Already key figures in Henry VIII’s court, with the ascent of Anne to the throne in 1533, these two men became the most important players on the Tudor stage, with direct access to royalty, and with it, influence. Both were highly skilled ambassadors and courtiers who negotiated their way through the complex and ruthless game of politics with ease. But when the Queen fell from grace just three years later, it was to have a devastating effect on her family – ultimately costing her brother his life. In this ground-breaking new book, Lauren Mackay reveals this untold story of Tudor England, bringing into the light two pivotal characters whose part in the rise and swift fall of Anne Boleyn has so far remained cloaked in shadow.” Thursday 11th October - 7.00pm start - Aylsham Town Hall £5 per ticket. Ticket price redeemable against book purchase, (one per ticket).

October - Halloween special! The Assembly of the Severed Head Be transported to 13th-century Wales with local hero Hugh Lupton. His masterful new novel The Assembly of the Severed Head tells the story of the making of The Mabinogion – an ancient Welsh myth cycle that is the earliest form of prose literature in Britain and an inspirational part of culture for hundreds of years… If you missed Hugh at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival earlier this year, now is your chance to see his spellbinding performance. To whet your appetite for blood and magic, here’s the blurb for Hugh’s novel… “A small monastic outpost in 13th Century Wales is rocked to its core when a gruesome discovery is made on the nearby shoreline: a severed human head. It’s the first of several to wash up along the surrounding coast, and not long after, the holy brothers stumble across the smouldering ruins of a bardic school with a pile of decapitated bodies inside. Only one survivor, barely alive, is found hiding nearby. He is Cian Brydydd Mawr, the greatest bard of his age, who holds in his head the four ‘branches’ of an ancient, epic Welsh myth cycle: The Mabinogion. Physically weak but strong willed, he asks the monks to put aside their rigid Christian doctrine and commit his tales (which they see as pagan relics) to parchment. It takes the intervention of a king to persuade them. And as the old poet tells his tales of spirits and shape-shifters, spells and curses, passion and vengeance, no-one in his audience will ever be the same again.” Hugh will perform selected sections of his story, and discuss his book on stage. £5 a ticket. Redeemable against book purchase. (one per ticket) Wednesday 31st October - 7:00pm start - Aylsham Town Hall

Sarah Perry - Melmoth launch - Norwich Sarah Perry’s previous novel The Essex Serpent was a number one bestseller. It was the Waterstone’s Book of the Year 2016, won British Book Awards for Fiction Book of the Year, and Book of the Year (as well as the BAMB Beautiful Book Award). It was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award, International Dylan Thomas and RSL Encore prizes and long-listed for the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction, the Wellcome Prize and the Walter Scott prizes. And now Sarah is back with her incredible new novel, Melmoth… Inspired by Charles Maturin’s forgotten gothic masterpiece Melmoth the Wanderer, Melmoth begins in the present day, and takes its ensemble cast of characters on a spectacular journey through time. Dazzlingly inventive, terrifying and beautiful, it will make readers think deeply about the human capacity for good and evil and how often the two are intertwined. This is a novel that transcends easy categorisations of gothic or literary fiction to speak urgently to our time. We’re very honoured to be launching Melmoth here in Norwich, at the fabulous Octagon Chapel on Colegate. There’ll be a reading, a Q&A, and a signing. This really is not to be missed – and as a bonus, the £5 ticket cost can be redeemed against the book (one book per ticket). Thursday 4th October - 6:30pm start - The Octagon Chapel, Colegate

Tickets available from The Book Hive or on 01603 219268 or www.thebookhive.co.uk.

Garden goes Gold Woodgate Nursery has gone gold with its latest entry into the Sandringham Flower Show gardens display. The Aylsham nursery, based at Cawston Road, was awarded Large Gold after being invited to exhibit in the Royal marquee. Teresa Rogers, who is in charge of perennial plants at the nursery, and her team spent the week camping

at Sandringham, building the garden and keeping it watered. “It was a tremendous team effort,” she said. “We are all very pleased with the award. Because the design involved wildflowers it has been 18 months in the planning and transporting it was a big logistical exercise. I would like to thank everyone involved including Chris Ellis,

Kevin Myhill and Cathrine Mullinger.” Woodgate has seen great success at Sandringham since it first entered a garden in 2012. This year’s plot was bigger and, as it was inside a marquee, was restricted on height, so needed careful planning. The team was delighted to meet the Prince of Wales during the event.

Strumming its way to success Formed just a year ago Broadland Ukes, Norfolk’s newest ukulele group, is set to expand to cope with performance demands all over the county. Broadland Ukes, based in Aylsham, has had a full summer calendar of performances for charities, community groups and good causes, ranging from Mundesley Volunteer Inshore Lifeboat to Norfolk Lions and the Bure Valley Railway. The group currently consists of 24 members and meets every Monday afternoon at the Friendship Hall in Aylsham to rehearse. It also runs a weekly beginners class for those new to the plucky little instrument. Co-founder Ernie Halls commented: “Several of our performing group were in the beginners’ class just a few months ago. It’s a sign of

quiz for lights

TALK BY WRITER

how far we have come as a group. We never charge for performances – we just love to use our music to help good causes. We have members from Wroxham to Gresham and everywhere in between.” Now the group is to expand into an additional evening session in the autumn to bring in those who work full time and who cannot make the afternoon rehearsals. Co-founder Malcolm Allsop added: “The Ukulele is such a fun instrument. It brings a smile to everyone’s face. It’s

the fastest growing instrument in the world in terms of active players and it’s now being taught in many schools where it has replaced the recorder. If anyone who already plays wants to join us or if you are interested in trying it out - just get in touch. We have been so busy performing over the summer - it’s been crazy ” You can contact Broadland Ukes by emailing broadlandukes@icloud. com or via their Facebook page www.facebook.com/ broadlandukes.

Well-known Norfolk writer Pete Goodrum will be giving a talk with pictures of Norwich in the 1950s and 60s at Marsham VIllage Hall, High Street, on Friday, September 21, 7 for 7.30pm. The cost for the evening is £4 per person booked in advance, or £5 on the night, to include refreshments. There will also be a raffle. To book call Hazel Kingswood on 01263 734091 or email hm.kingswood@hotmail.com.

Volunteer recruitment day at Blickling Estate

We’re happy to help, could you? Would you like to help conserve one of the nation's beautiful places? At Blickling Estate, we're always looking for new volunteers and with a wide variety of opportunities available, it's a great year to join us. We'll be holding a volunteer recruitment day on Saturday, October 13, to tell you more about how you could get involved. So whether you’re a book lover, a gardener, a baker, or you’re just looking for a new fun challenge, we’d love to see you. Enjoy chatting to staff and volunteers from various departments around the estate who will talk you through all the things you can get involved with at Blickling. You'll then have a chance to let us know which roles you’d be interested in and ask any questions, before the session closes. Making new friends, working in amazing places and knowing that you’re helping a great cause are three fabulous reasons to get involved in volunteering at Blickling. You’ll be joining thousands of other National Trust volunteers in caring for the special places we all love, and become part of the incredible team at Blickling Estate which is helping to conserve this beautiful place. We’re excited that 2018 will see the start of some new unique opportunities for volunteers. This year, we’re all about books, as we celebrate the story of Blickling’s impressive, 18th-century Long Gallery library, which contains more than 12,500

8

volumes. As a result, we have positions in our second-hand bookshop, as well as an exciting new role as a book tour guide. If books aren't your thing, but you love the outdoors, enjoy talking to people or have a passion for baking, then we have just the role for you. It’s not essential to be a history expert, but you do need to enjoy meeting new people, have a warm and friendly personality, and be willing to learn new things. The day will run from 10am-3pm, drop in anytime. Call our volunteer team on 01263 738077 for more details.

GCSE students make the grade Students and staff at Aylsham High School were thrilled with another great set of GCSE results this year. Students in years 9, 10, and 11 all collected results on Thursday, August 23. Students received a mixture of the traditional A*-G grades and the new 9-1 grades (9 highest to 1 lowest). Last year 9-1 grades were only awarded in English language, English literature and maths. This year the 9-1 grades were extended to a much larger range of GCSE subjects. The 9 grades are reserved for children achieving in the top 5% of students nationally and are therefore much harder to achieve. The class of 2018 did incredibly well with 78% achieving a level 4 or above in both English and maths. This figure places AHS in the top four high schools in Norfolk; 50% of students achieved a level 5 or above in both English and maths which is significantly above the national. In maths, 87% of students received a level 4 or above and 66% level 5 or above. This puts AHS’s maths department as one of the very top performing maths teams in Norfolk. Similarly, in English results were very positive with 83% getting a 4 or better in English and 63% getting a 5 or better. The science department also did incredibly well with 46 grade 9s. The arts, creative, vocational, and practical subjects continue to thrive at AHS alongside a very strong academic core. It was great to see a large number of students across years 9,10, and 11 secure excellent grades in their options with a significant number achieving the top grades. Duncan Spalding, executive headteacher, said: “Congratulations to the class of 2018 on a tremendous set of results across a wide range of subjects. You should be justly proud of everything that you have achieved. We wish you well in the next stage of your learning adventure wherever that may be. It has been a pleasure to have you as part of our school community and to watch you grow into fine young adults. To my

Music and magic on menu at event Music and magic are on the menu at this year’s Aylsham Food Festival, presented by Slow Food Aylsham. The ever-popular event returns in October with a packed weekend of old favourites and family entertainment. Alongside regular features like the Country Market, Farmers’ Market and Slow Brunch will be the walkabout musical act Banana Ukulele Band and magician and children’s entertainer, Robbie James. Organised by Slow Food Aylsham (SFA), the festival will be in its customary early October slot, from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th. SFA chairman Patrick Prekopp said: “While the focus of the festival will, of course, be on food and particularly local produce, we want to make people think differently about food. It should be fun, and we hope to sprinkle a bit of magic and stardust around too.” The programme kicks off a week earlier with a “fringe taster”, Rosie With Cider, on Friday, September 28, at the Town Hall. Rosie Warren and her dad David, from Aylsham, will demonstrate the art of cidermaking using a cider press – accompanied by Aylsham folk musician, singer and cartoonist, Tony Hall on melodeon. Bring your own apples and sample fresh apple juice, or David’s home-made scrumpy, or buy from the barrel. It starts at 6.30pm and tickets are £1 at

Ask Paul . . . Each month we are inundated with questions from vendors and buyers alike. Here’s a selection of this month’s.

What is a Flying Freehold? This describes when part of a freehold property overhangs or encroaches into another separate freehold property. For example, a first-floor bedroom that partly lies over a downstairs room in the neighbour’s property. There are many other situations, especially with older-style properties. It shouldn’t be a deal breaker as long as it is written into the contract.

I’ve offered the guide price for the property but I have a property to sell, why won’t the owner accept my offer? As agents, we have a duty to ensure that we act in the best interest of our client – the seller. If they accepted an offer from an applicant who has yet to sell then they may be precluding other interested parties in a better position. In general terms an offer will only be accepted from a non-dependent purchaser who can proceed immediately with the purchase.

Should I seek mortgage advice before I start viewing properties? concert for the Autumn takes place at Aylsham Parish Church on September 19 at 1pm. The Accidentals, Anna Hopkins on flute and Karen Smith on piano, will be playing a programme of music mostly written in the late 19th century. There are Hungarian dances from Bartok and a Fantaisie from Gabriel Faure together with Suites from CM Widor and York Bowen. Tickets are £8 on the door from 12.30pm. More details are available on the website http://www. musicmattersservices.co.uk.

Understanding your budget before you go shopping is vital. Now is one of the most affordable times to borrow money. There are some excellent fixed term rates that will help you to buy your dream property. My advice would be to talk to an expert such as the Mortgage Advice Bureau. They will guide you through the application process and help you find an affordable deal that works for you.

A Redwings hat-trick at the Aylsham Show Rehomed rescued ponies from Redwings Horse Sanctuary were awarded the top three places in the Best Ridden Rescue Class at the Aylsham Show. In a display of what rescued horses can achieve in nurturing homes, New Forest pony Redwings Fern took first place in the popular ridden class, followed by Welsh pony Redwings Thyme in second and cob Redwings Benson in third. Pretty Fern also took home the top prize in the Plaited Show Pony Class and second in the Angels on Horseback Class. Thirteen-year-old Fern arrived at Redwings in 2005 with her mother Forest when she was just three-months-old and suffering with an eye condition. Fern received the veterinary treatment she needed and grew into a friendly pony and an ideal candidate for the charity’s rehoming programme. She went on to find a new home with her guardian, Danielle Pye, in March this year. Danielle, whose five-year-old son Jayden rode Fern at the Aylsham Show, said: “When we won, I was brought to tears

WINNER: Redwings Fern with five-yearold rider Jayden. – I was that proud of both of them. Fern behaved impeccably all day and Jayden rode her brilliantly. This is the first big event he’s been to with Fern, but they both took it in their stride and stole the show.” Runner-up Thyme arrived at Redwings in 2004 with a large group of feral ponies rescued from an area of common land in

Wales. Her guardian, Samantha Hayes, who has cared for Thyme for seven years, said she is part of the family: “She is an absolute pleasure. We could not have asked for a better pony. She has been ridden by both my daughters and now they’re growing up, we have a lovely little girl to ride her.” Handsome Benson has lived with his guardian, Sharon Pye, for 12 years. He was taken in by Ada Cole Memorial Stables (before the charity merged with Redwings Horse Sanctuary) in 2003. Sharon said: “It was a wonderful day for us, and for Redwings. Benson has retired from jumping now, and instead has turned into a dressage diva and loves shows. It goes to show that rescued horses and ponies can do just as well as any other horse or pony.” Rachel Angell, Redwings’ rehoming and operations manager, said: “We’re delighted to hear of the successes of our guardians and rescued ponies.” Visit www.redwings.org.uk/rehoming to find out more.

A colourful tour of the local saints and sinners Author Peter Sargent goes on a 2,000-year journey through East Anglia’s colourful and varied history in a new book. In this series of 50 short stories, you will meet kings and queens such as Edward I and Katharine of Aragon, figures of legend such as Fenland giant Tom Hickathrift, medieval saints and more than a few sinners. There are witches and clergymen, soldiers and sailors, revolutionaries and working class heroes, entrepreneurs, raffish hell-raising boxers and dedicated philanthropists, including Sir Thomas Erpingham commander of the archers at the Battle of Agincourt. This is a sequel to the author's first book, A Moment in Time, 50 stories that bring East Anglian history to life. Peter said: “So many people have their place in history. For some it is a large and well-known slot, familiar to millions of people in the present day. Others have a far more humble location, and are not so well-known. They all find their place in this book.” Peter’s interest in history was sparked when he studied the subject at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, during the 1980s. After working in March, Peterborough and

that we are regularly asked. Firstly, we don’t have any administrative charges and all the money that you give us goes to charities and worthy causes. In the past year we have raised more than £19,000 and given away more than £17,500 to worthy causes. Donations go to local organisations as well as national and international charities. For example, we gave £350 each to Aylsham Football Club for the boys and

girls teams and Aylsham St Giles Cricket Club for the junior team. While at the other end of the age scale, we gave similar amounts to the Aylsham Bowls Club and the Older Peoples Association. We also gave £500 to Leah Colebrooke for her gap-year project in the Caribbean. The club doesn’t just donate money but also uses it to provide support for local people and we used some £380 to provide lunches on two separate occasions for the members of the Sycamore Tree Club and their helpers (pictured). Internationally, we continue to contribute to the Purple4Polio campaign to eradicate polio and we are again supporting Hospice Ethiopia. In addition, we retain some funds to make immediate donations when needed by organisations such as Shelterbox.

Living in shadow of teenage tragedy It’s 1982. The Falklands War is on the telly. Dexy’s Midnight Runners haunt the airwaves and 15-year-old Norfolk school girl Susan Kemp is going off the rails. And then she vanishes . . . into thin air. Thirty six years later her brothers Pete and Melvin still live in the shadow of Susan’s disappearance. This storyline is the basis of a new play by Rob John, Into Thin Air, which will be touring Norfolk and Suffolk in October. Rob acknowledges that when Norfolk people hear about the subject of his play they inevitably mention the tragic case of April Fabb the Norfolk teenager who disappeared in 1969. “I live in North Norfolk only a couple of miles from the place where April was last seen. I’ve often thought about the awful long-term impact of her disappearance on her family but although the idea for the play might have in some way been triggered by this well-known case my story and its characters are entirely fictional,” he says. Aylsham residents may also see some similarities with the case of Susan Long.

Into Thin Air is the latest production of fEAST Theatre. Having established themselves as one of the region’s most accomplished professional touring theatre companies with sell out tours of The Canada Boys, Parachute and, earlier this year, Salt, fEAST describes the play as a compelling mystery, a tender family memoir and a sad comedy of ambiguous loss. It stars London-based actress Charlotte Price, who plays Susan. It is directed by Rob and features fEAST regulars Dawn Finnerty, Robin McLoughlin and Owen Evans, of Nimmo Twins fame. Co-director Dawn Finnerty said: “Like many theatre makers we would love to see more young people at our shows. Under 20s are a hard-to-reach audience and we are determined to challenge that. We feel that Rob’s story will appeal to younger people as well as our established audience and so we are planning to give students in schools and colleges an opportunity to meet some of the characters from the play through a series of Forum Theatre  workshops.

TRAUMA: Charlotte Price plays the missing Norfolk schoolgirl Susan Kemp, in Rob John’s new play Into Thin Air. “We hope that some of those who take part in these sessions will want to find out what happens next and so come and see the show.” Since the company was established in 2010, fEAST Theatre’s reputation has grown and the company has built up a loyal audience in the region with a series of wellreceived touring productions but they are hoping that this production will extend their audience base still further. There will be a performance on Saturday, October 20, at Aylsham Town Hall. The box office is at Barnwells in the Market  Place, call 01263 733136.

Swing into Aylsham Performer Jeff Short is bringing a series of monthly matinee shows with his swing band, to The Friendship Hall in Aylsham on Thursdays, starting on October 18. Jeff was a successful writer, producer and performer of professional musical shows in Essex and London before moving to Norfolk in January. For 10 years, with his 16 piece big band, Jeff was the host of Strictly Come Dancing weekends at Seacroft Holiday Village in Hemsby. Since moving to Norfolk Jeff now runs monthly evening ballroom dances at Hellesdon and East Tuddenham every third and fourth Saturday in the month. Jeff wanted to bring entertainment to retired people during the afternoons, and with that in mind, brought a number of such shows over the past years to the people of Essex. Working with the Queen's Theatre, Essex,

Jeff produced and presented a string of nostalgic matinee productions which feature music, comedy and songs built around stars of previous decades. Jeff now brings his productions to Norfolk. Each themed show features Jeff's professional live musicians and singers and some shows have special guest artists. The first show on Thursday, October 18, is titled The Fabulous 50s with the songs of Dickie Valentine, Alma Cogan, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Frankie Vaughan, Cliff Richard, and more. The audience will be seated at tables in cabaret-style and tea, coffee and cakes are included in the price. All shows feature Jeff's smaller swing band and start at 2pm (doors open from 1.30pm). There is parking on site and at the Mill Road car park. All tickets are £10 and available in advance from 01263 733845. Next shows in the series are Songs That

Won The War, which feature the band in authentic American uniforms (November 8) for Remembrance week and Christmas Variety (December 20). For more details visit www.jeffshort. co.uk.

Sax and clarinet music will be coming to Aylsham on September 22 with The Mike Deane Six. The concert will be at 7.30pm at Aylsham Methodist Church in White Hart Street. The band is a group of clarinet and saxophone players, based in Hickling, who are available to play for events in and around Norfolk. It is a band born out of a love of jazz and of music generally. They are never happier than when playing music from the golden age of the big bands but also play songs from musicals, blues and a bit of classical. Entry is free and there are refreshments in the interval. Donations on the night will go to Action for Children Charity.

from the parish church Aylsham vicar the Rev Canon ANDREW BEANE talks about what’s been happening in the church and the month ahead.

Generosity abounds I expect most of us would like others to think we were generous; we wouldn’t want to miss our turn buying a round of drinks for example, would we? Generosity originally meant being from a noble family but over time its meaning has changed into having a noble spirit or a generous heart. Of course, we can be generous in different ways – generous with our time, our gifts, talents or generous with our money. Harvest is a season about the generosity of nature and (hopefully) abundant harvests, hence our celebration of harvest festival, giving thanks for all that we have been giving and sharing some of that abundance generously with others. We continue that generosity today by bringing our tins and packets to be given to Foodbanks or charities. But what can we share now so many of us are not so closely connected with the agricultural year? Could we have a harvest of the wardrobe? A harvest of understairs cupboard or a harvest of the garage and find those things we once loved but now

no longer need. What do we do with all the stuff we’ve harvested, well we have a choice? We could offer it for free to our friends and they will think we are so generous and kind, or we could give it to a charity shop and create a double blessing. The charity shop will benefit, but so will those in need looking for low cost items they will get a bargain. But so much more than this, the charity shop will raise money, and this can transform another person’s life. A truly generous heart gives without anyone noticing. May I take this opportunity to thank all those who give so generously to our church. Giving in so many different ways through time, energy, skill, money your generosity truly makes a difference. Thank you also for those who donate to our Monday Sale. These donations help us to provide free activities for families, keep our church open and offer events for the community. May you be blessed this harvest and be a blessing to others.

Art springs eternal at Blickling Hall An exciting and eclectic mix of original artwork by two local artists will be showing at Blickling this autumn. Rosalie Osborne Gibb’s diverse range of art reflects her love of coast and countryside, from land and seascapes to flora and fauna, from bold acrylics to finely detailed watercolours, soft pastels and mixed media, often incorporating creative

techniques (above left and right). Caroline Richmond captures British wildlife and the feeling of freedom, the wonderful light and ever-changing conditions identifiable with the North Norfolk coastline in oil on canvas (above centre). Signed limited edition prints, greetings cards, bone china mugs and coasters

depicting original artwork will also be available, together with unique bottle stoppers made by local artist David Roger Burton from reclaimed oak and materials from Nelson’s HMS Victory. The Art Springs Eternal exhibition will run at The Loft Gallery, Blickling Hall, from October 1-12. October 1, 1pm-5.30pm, 12th 10am-2pm, 2 -11 10am-5.30pm.
