from the editor I’m full of admiration for Nikki de Greef, pictured at the UEA pool, who has chosen to fight cancer without medical treatment. Read about her on page 10.

My family has reason to be grateful to the fantastic nurses funded by Macmillan Cancer Support and as we’re coming up to the charity’s annual coffee morning extravaganza, I’ll be getting my purse out again. For details of a Macmillan fundraiser in Eaton, see page 5. Hopefully Eaton can put the summer roadworks misery behind it and residents and businesses can get back to normal. There’s some useful advice on page 6 for anyone confused by the new crossroads arrangements. I love Cringleford WI’s suffragette costumes (page 8). We welcome contributions from all local groups and organisations so please get in touch.

Male voice choir to give concert

Delight at exam results

WAIT OVER: Teacher Roz Hart (left) celebrating A-level results with student Eloise Brookes.

Students and staff at City of Norwich School celebrated another year of impressive A-level and GCSE results this year. In A-levels, a fifth of entries achieved top grades and in GCSEs, 30 students achieved Grade 9 in two or more of their subjects. Overall, 19pc of A-level entries achieved A* or A grades, an increase on

last year’s figure, with 16 students achieving three or more A*/A grades in their A-levels. Over half of all A-levels taken at CNS, sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust, achieved A* to B grades, a significant increase on 2017, while more than threequarters of entries achieved A* to C grades, up 8pc from last year.

Three students will be going to Cambridge University, 36 students have gained Russell Group university places, and five students secured five high-level apprenticeships, including at a leading solicitors’ firm. In GCSEs 68pc of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and maths and 51pc gained the higher Grade 5 or better. In English, 76pc of students achieved a Grade 4 or above and there was similar success in maths, with 75pc of students achieving at least a Grade 4. Over a quarter of all students achieved a Grade 7 or above in English or maths, many in both, and 20pc of all Year 11 achieved one or more of the 121 Grade 9s. Headteacher Jo Philpott said: “Students and staff worked incredibly hard with the support of their families. Well done everyone!’

A Welsh male voice choir will be singing this month in honour of the late Carolyn Phillips, an Eaton resident who was a former president of the Norwich Welsh Society. Carolyn died in December 2017, just weeks after receiving a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Inviting the Gwalia Male Voice Choir (pictured) to sing has been a part of the society’s way of honouring Carolyn. Proceeds from the concert, on September 22, will go to Pancreatic Cancer UK. The idea was the brainchild of Cringleford residents Tony Davies, supported by his wife, Megan. They are former presidents and vicepresidents of the society. The concert takes place at Chapel Field Road Methodist Church, Norwich NR2 1SD. Tickets cost £10 via www. norwichwelshsociety.org.uk or from Norwich businesses The Book Hive, London Street, or St George’s Music Shop, St George’s Street.

Sing-a-long-a-hymn Hymnathon Part Two will take place in Christ Church, Eaton, on Saturday October 6, from 9.30am. The event will see participants complete the challenge they started in July of singing their way through one verse from every hymn in the current hymn book. Refreshments will be available. So far choristers have raised about £500 with their feat which began on Norfolk Day, July 27, in blistering heat. Proceeds will go towards buying new Hymns Ancient and Modern books for the church. Everyone is welcome to visit, sing and/or support the event financially.

Macmillan coffee event A World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, will be held on Friday September 28, from 10am-3pm, at 32 Norton Drive, Eaton, NR4 6JD. Everyone is welcome. There will be a £2 charge for coffee, cakes and biscuits. Organiser Christine Mason would welcome donations of cakes and tombola prizes which can be brought along to her home on the day, or just before.

Angels needed More angels are needed for a special festival in November – but time is running out for angel-makers. The deadline for submissions to Christ Church, Eaton’s, three-day Festival of Angels is October 31. There are entry categories for children, teens, adults or groups to make angels, and entry is free of charge. Entry forms can be downloaded from the church website: http:// christchurch-eaton.org.uk/ or collected from Christ Church, Church Avenue NR2 2AQ (open 9am-4pm daily) or the Parishes’ Office (10amnoon Monday to Friday), at 41 Church Lane NR4 6NW. The festival – from November 23-25, 10am to 5pm Friday and Saturday, and noon to 5pm on Sunday - will include a café with homemade produce, and “angelic” crafts will be on sale.

All Change at NEW-look Eaton crossroads Four key messages have emerged from a meeting between Eaton representatives and a senior traffic control officer following the completion of roadworks in the village. Councillors Caroline Ackroyd and Judith Lubbock asked for the meeting after observing how drivers were using the new layout. Councillor Lubbock said: “It was very useful to have this opportunity as pedestrians, cyclists and drivers using the junction have questions about the changes and we wanted to pass on some helpful information”. The messages are: 1. Right Hand Turn (RHT) from Cringleford into Church Lane. There are facilities for allowing this RHT even though there is not a filter and it appears that cars are turning on red. All lights stay red to allow right-turning vehicles that have gone over the stop line on green to clear the junction when the signals have turned red. 2. Signal outside Planet Wok showing red. This is not a stopping point but a repeater signal for the slip road. 3. Pedestrian timings. The pedestrian crossings have been designed with additional detection to monitor the speed of pedestrians crossing and will extend the red time to vehicles according to the speed of the pedestrian. 4. Keep Clear Sign. For the crossroads to function efficiently the “keep clear” sign should be observed at all times to allow access to and from the car park behind the shops.

GET-TOGETHER: Lunch club members and volunteers at the tea party.

Tea party held in summer scorcher Cringleford Luncheon Club’s annual tea party for members and volunteers took place on a sweltering August afternoon. “With all the windows open the hall remained cool, despite over 50 people sitting and chatting over a cup of tea, said spokesman Isobel Brewin. “The hall looked cheerful, having been decorated with the theme of a visit to the sea by another group earlier in the month. Background music, played on the piano by a volunteer, completed the relaxed atmosphere,” she added. “Sandwiches, small tea-cakes, biscuits

and home-made scones with cream and strawberries were the order of the day. “As always, many thanks to all who came to help make the afternoon a success. It certainly was appreciated by all our members and volunteers.” The club includes several members from Eaton and organisers would love to recruit volunteers from Eaton who would be able to provide transport for them. Anyone who would like to join the club, or one of the cooking or driving teams, should phone Isobel on 07879 286 756 for more information.

Oh they did like to be beside the seaside! Eaton CAMEO welcomed members and newcomers for their Summer Holiday Special afternoon in August. The two dozen present joined in with I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside after tea, coffee and biscuits, before taking part in a range of informal activities. These included a variety of holiday-related quizzes, art work and table games. Others used the suitcase of holiday reminiscence material from Norfolk Libraries to chat about their own past holidays. Many had brought along their own photos and mementoes. This revealed some real treasures, not just wonderful in themselves but taking those handling them back through the decades to their happy holidays and true adventures. Members leaving at the end of the afternon voted the event the best to date. Eaton CAMEO meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except December) 2.30pm- 4pm at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Church Lane, Eaton, NR4 6NW. There is free, accessible parking and

HOLIDAYS PAST: Eaton CAMEO members with the suitcase of reminiscence material. disabled access. The next meeting is on September 26 and is on a Harvest Time theme. Those attending are invited to dig out any harvestrelated photos to take along and share stories of the past. CAMEO events are volunteer-led, informal gatherings designed for people who are lonely, worried about their memory, or those living with dementia and their companions, to come together for shared activities and a little light relief mid-week.

Steam success Hundreds of people have helped raise hundreds of pounds for a charity which teaches catering skills to help homeless people find jobs. Visitors to Eaton Park Miniature Railway on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27, enjoyed an afternoon of rides aboard two steam engines thanks to the Norwich and District Society of Model Engineers (NDSME) which operates the railway. The event was the second annual day dedicated to the Lord Mayor’s Fund and councillor Martin Schmierer, current Lord Mayor of Norwich, was there in all his finery, to cut a ribbon, tell people about The Feed - his chosen charity for the year – and take a ride himself. More than 700 rides were taken during the afternoon and £689 was raised for The Feed.

MAKE A DATE WITH PUDSEY Pudsey Bear will be visiting the miniature railway on Sunday September 30 when proceeds will be donated to the BBC’s Children in Need appeal. Trains will run between 1pm and 5pm and Pudsey will be there until about 4pm. Take a picnic and a camera and send NDSME’s Facebook page your best photo. This will be the seventh year that the railway has supported the charity and organisers are hoping they might be able to beat last year’s total for the cause of more than £850.

Suffragettes honoured at WI tea party Cringleford WI’s committee, wearing the suffragette colours of purple, white and green, greeted members arriving for the branch’s annual afternoon tea party (pictured). The colours, symbolising dignity, purity and hope, were mirrored in the table flowers for the afternoon. Members old and new celebrated this year’s centenary of some women getting the vote, a reminder of what campaigning women can achieve. Cakes – some decorated in purple, white and green – went down a treat as well. The WI has a full and varied programme of evening meetings, held on the second Monday of the month at 7.30pm in Cringleford Church Hall. Recent speakers have included Georgette Vale, who gave a striking portrayal of the 19th-century social reformer Harriet

Martineau, and Emma Fletcher, from Norwich City FC Charity Sports Foundation. The speaker on October 8 is Mr Cosmo, alias Cosmo Hardy, artistic director of Foolhardy Circus Arts. He last entertained the WI two years ago when his theme was the history and traditions of clowning. His subject this time is the Life and Times of Charlie Chaplin. Prospective members are very welcome to join members for the evening. For more details visit: (www. cringlefordwi.weebly.com) or telephone the president on 01508 571148.

when witches were out of favour Mike Wabe, of Medieval World, gave the Norwich Venta Probus Club a chilling presentation entitled Witches and Witch Hunting in East Anglia. Whilst witches were initially tolerated in their communities, unexplained events such as the Black Death in the 14th century brought about a shift in perception. Someone had to be blamed – even for trivial misfortunes such as the curdling of food. Elizabethan times resulted in 270 witches being tried. East Anglia was a centre for witch hunting. In 1590 Margaret Read was burned alive in King’s Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place. It is said that her heart burst from her body searing a permanent sign into the brickwork of No. 15/16, before bouncing into the River Ouse which bubbled like a cauldron. The years 1645-47 brought the reign of terror of Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins. Starting in Manningtree he swept through Essex, Suffolk, King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth (twice), punishing almost as many as he accused. Norwich Venta Probus meets on the third Wednesday of each month at Park Farm, Hethersett, at noon. Retired professional and business men meet over lunch followed by a presentation such as the above.

Year of Celebration events CONTINUE St Andrew’s Church, Eaton’s, Year of Celebration continues on Sunday October 14 when the preacher at 10am holy communion will be former St Andrew’s vicar, Canon Richard Hanmer. And at 3pm there will be an organ recital by former St Andrew’s organist Neil Ricketts, currently the principal organist at St John’s RC Cathedral, Norwich. From October 18-21, between 9am-3pm, the church will host an exhibition of painting and flowers by local artists. This year marks both the 700th anniversary of the first vicar of St Andrew’s and 25 years since the opening of the new church building.

Brave Nikki, 54, takes the plunge Nicole De Greef, a 54-year-old resident at Cavell Court care home, on Cringleford’s Dragonfly Lane, has impressed fellow residents and staff with her unwavering resilience in the face of serious illness. “Nikki” was diagnosed with cancer in May 2017 and has vowed to stay strong and live her life to the full – declining medical treatment for the disease. She moved to the Care UK home earlier this year and is an active member of its community. Nikki has always lived an active lifestyle and particularly loves swimming. The Care UK team arranged for her to visit the UEA Sportspark pool for a morning, in the hope it would give her enjoyment and ease some of the pains she lives with as a result of the cancer. Nikki said: “I’ve missed swimming so much and the feeling of freedom it provides. There is something about being in the water that makes me feel so calm and relaxed – it really is my happy place. “I knew it wasn’t going to be easy battling cancer without treatment, but I want to enjoy my life while I’m still able to, so I really can’t thank the care team enough for helping me to do this. When I came to Cavell Court earlier this year I was blown away by the kindness and compassion of the whole team, and how they are all genuinely dedicated to ensuring people are treated as individuals and are able to enjoy a good quality of life. “I felt amazing after my swim and my confidence soared. For the first time in a long time I felt refreshed and like me again – I can’t wait to go back!”

SWIMMING AGAIN: Nikki (centre) at the UEA pool with staff from Cavell Court. Jennie Rodger, home manager at Cavell Court, added: “Nikki is one of our younger residents and is simply a joy to have around. She is forever pushing boundaries and going out of her way to get the most out of her day – and helps others to do the same. We were delighted that we were able to help Nikki do something we all know is so special to her, and it was clear how much the time in the pool meant to her.”

Olly speeds to glory

CORNERING: action from the competition.

Local competitor Olly Allerton helped the South East team to overall victory in the final round of the British Ladies’ League Speedway Championship, held at Eaton Park. It was Olly’s debut in the competition and she scored eight points. The club wants to recruit more female riders and is hoping to stage “female only” coaching sessions in the near future.

Ask Lewis . . . DISPLACED: Gautam Sharma (in red shirt) at one of the refugee camps.

Put a smile on refugees’ faces

Local dentist Gautam Sharma heads back to the war-torn Middle East this month on a special return visit to provide dental care for refugee families – and is asking Eaton and Cringleford residents to support him by donating items or cash. Dr Sharma will travel back to Lebanon, on the Syrian border, on September 27 where he treated families at Easter. He has been appointed lead clinical consultant of The Dental Mavericks charity and is returning to the region as part of an initiative dubbed Miles for Smiles. Dr Sharma has an allowance of some 23kg available and is keen to take as many toys, toothbrushes, colouring books and crayons as possible, as well as any other small donations. “On my previous visit, I was humbled by the response I received to all the small gestures which I had managed

to take with me,” said Dr Sharma, who runs West Earlham Dental Practice. “This is a community of people who have been through so much, and faced such horrific circumstances in recent times, so being handed a toy or a Norwich City T-shirt meant so much to them.” “This time I’ve been granted more luggage allocation for my trip, so I’d be really appreciative of any kind gesture which local businesses and families in the area could offer. “Something so simple to us here in East Anglia, means such an incredible amount to families of those who have been displaced.” To contact Dr Sharma and hear more about his work, and about how Dental Mavericks is improving the lives of Syrian refugees, email smiles@westearlhamdental. co.uk or ring 01603 250583.

First World War tribute grows Cringleford’s plans to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War are snowballing. A free community event, from 5pm-8pm on Sunday November 11, will include a big band concert, exhibition, documentary screening, kids’ crafts, a bar, and café serving hot food. Now Cringleford Historical Society has come on board to mount a display and Cringleford Scouts will be singing some songs with the Pavilion Big Band.

Eaton and Cringleford

A beacon will be lit at 7pm – at the same time as others across the country - by the winner of a poster competition for local school children. Cringleford Parish Council has joined forces with Cringleford Hub, the Pavilion Big Band, Old Catton Kitchen and the Willow Centre to stage the event. For more information email admin@cringlefordpc.org.uk, ring 01603 457222 or follow the Facebook page @thewillowcentre

Each month we are inundated with questions from vendors and buyers alike. Here is an issue raised this month.

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? 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.

If you have a question for our property expert find us on social media (@arnoldskeys #AskLewis) or email us norwich@arnoldskeys.com
