from the archives TIM GROVES, from Sheringham Museum, delves into the archives. This issue he focuses on the 1940s to tie in with Sheringham’s special annual event.

A decade of war and peace The North Norfolk Railway’s 1940s Weekend has become a much anticipated annual event. For the September event many businesses decorate their shop windows, with staff, local people and thousands of visitors dressing up in the styles of the decade. The 40s was a decade of war and peace, a time when the residents of Sheringham, a frontline town, lived in fear of air raids, possible invasion and the struggles of rationing. It was also a decade when a global war ended and the people celebrated peace. Through many different papers, posters artefacts and photographs the museum archive is able to tell the story of these years. For those who lived through the war years here in Sheringham your memories are a vital part of those times. Many people kept diaries and have written down notes of their memories. Sixteen years ago, May Ayers shared her memories and experiences of Sheringham

during the 1939-1945 war years. In her book Shannocks in Wartime, May brings to life what it was to “court and marry a man from foreign parts” – Lowestoft – the anxiety whilst he was away on active service, the terror of surviving air-raids and the general flavour of what life was like in Sheringham during those dark days. As May recalls, Sheringham suffered considerable bomb damage, men went to war,

women enlisted or joined the Land Army or became munitions workers; blackout, then rationing restricted a normal life at home. May lived through it all and in this book of her memories gives us a firsthand impression of what life was really like in Sheringham. (Shannocks in Wartime written by May Ayers was published by The Larks Press in 2001). May’s book is unfortunately out of print, but worth looking for in the library and does occasionally appear in local charity shops or Peter’s Bookshop in St Peter’s Road. Many of the long-range bombers sent from Norfolk airfields would limp home on damaged engines and low fuel reserves. Often they would have little choice but to crash land in the sea rather than risk crashing on land in a populated area. During the war years Sheringham’s Lifeboat, Foresters Centenary, was launched 56 times of which 34 involved aircraft and their crews. Because of this service, Foresters Centenary became

known as the “Airmen’s Lifeboat”. Children in Sheringham would enjoy watching the planes, boasting about how much they knew about them. Throughout the 1940s, Sheringham and the North Norfolk coast was a hive of aerial activity with Allied planes and enemy bombers filled the skies. Norfolk was the home to a number of RAF and American airbases whose planes would fly over the North Sea to reach their targets on mainland Europe. Likewise enemy planes would cross the coast to reach targets here and dogfights would take place over the coastline. There was a notable incident during the war when a German plane crashed onto the beach. Bombs would often hit the town as German bombers were instructed not to return home with bombs left in their bays. Sheringham was one of the final targets before they returned!

NEW ALPHA COURSE

Who’s she when she’s at home? Wha’s that you say? You ‘erd! Many readers will recognise these Norfolk sayings which boggle the minds of foreigners to Nelson’s county but bring a smile and a certain nostalgia to locals. Ellie Daniels, born and bred in Sheringham, has recently launched a new business producing unique, handmade soft furnishings and home accessories, featuring those big bold Norfolk phrases we've all grown to know and love. After graduating with an honours degree in fashion design at Middlesex University in London, Ellie returned to her family home on the Norfolk coast with the ambition of one day creating her own designs to sell. Her brand name Eleanora Tiatora came first, a nickname given to her by her mum Julie when she was little. After experimenting with different ideas and print designs, a serious laptop crash left her with an empty hard drive. A cold March evening after this, with the family slumped about post dinner, the Nanny Bayfield Collection was thought up. “Tha’s what my nanny used to say!” is a common exclamation when someone accidentally slips Norfolk jargon into a sentence nowadays; and is exactly the excuse Ellie’s mum would give after muttering something like “tha’s a funny name to go to bed with” when answered with a confused laugh by her children. Julie was referring to her Nanny Bayfield or Mabel Bayfield.

Mabel Bayfield is Ellie’s great grandmother, the wife of Wilfred Bayfield who owned East Coast Dairies in Sheringham from the 1930s until early the 1970s. Mabel was born in Sheringham to a local fishing family in 1905 and lived in the town her whole life. On marrying she moved into a house next door to the dairy which has been kept in the family. Now Ellie still lives there. Whether jesting or because, like for so many locals, they just come naturally, she would often come out with broad sayings such as “cor tha’s a loada ol’ squit” or “who’s that when they’re at home?” This formed the inspiration for Eleanora Tiatora designs, whereby Ellie handwrites the ol’ local jargon and has it printed on organic cotton to cut and sew in her sewing room, making cushions, tea towels, aprons, make up bags and more. Recently Eleanora Tiatora has collaborated with the well known Stubbs Mugs from Sheringham, who are producing bone china mugs with The Nanny Bayfield Collection designs on them. Eleanora Tiatora has been at a few crafts fairs already this summer, including Holkham Country Fair. You can follow her on Instagram @ eleanora.tiatora,crafts or get in touch via Facebook @EleanoraTiatora. She will also be releasing a website soon under the domain eleanoratiatora.com.

An Alpha course will be starting at Lighthouse Community Church this autumn, giving people an opportunity to find out more about the Christian faith. The 12-week course runs weekly through until Christmas, allowing participants to discuss the Christian faith in an informal environment, and to ask questions and explore what Christians believe. Meetings will take place each Thursday starting on September 21. Participants will gather at 6.45pm for a light meal at 7pm followed by a DVD and discussion. Sessions should finish around 9pm to 9.15pm. Contact Ruth Holt on ruthholt29@gmail.com or Lighthouse office on office@ lighthousesheringham.org, 01263 669012.

The Norfolk coast is an inspiration to many, none more so than photographer Paul Macro, whose work is currently on show at the council offices on Holt Road, Cromer. Officers are also working hard to stop the recent events of unauthorised travellers setting up in the town happening again.

Coast is Paul’s inspiration North Norfolk District Council’s latest art exhibition takes its inspiration from the Norfolk coast. The Inspired by Norfolk collection is by local photographer Paul Macro and highlights the sights of the Norfolk coast with its dark winter skies, rough seas and fiery sunsets. “The sights, sounds and smells of the Norfolk coast are woven into my soul and my happy childhood is a bright tapestry of memories,” Paul said. “I’m a Norfolk man, born and brought up in Norwich, and seaside holidays at Burnham Overy Staithe played an important part in my childhood. Several times a year, at all times of the year, my family spent holidays and weekends in our caravan, where the beauty of

Norfolk’s unspoiled beaches and wide skies provided the backdrop to our other world, where there was peace and contentment and sibling harmony. “My passion for Norfolk’s dark winter skies and rough seas, fiery sunsets and tough, wind-slapped greenery was born from an early exposure to these beauties – before I knew they were beautiful.” Paul is proud that his work has helped local charities, and he has received orders for his charity calendars from every continent. The RNLI, Nelson’s Journey, Break and Red Balloon are amongst the charities that have benefited from his support. Maggie Prior, cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: “It’s lovely to see our exhibition space being

used for such wonderful work. Paul brilliantly combines his natural skill and the wonderful Norfolk landscapes.” The exhibition runs until September 13 at the NNDC offices gallery in Holt Road, Cromer. The gallery is open to the public 8.30am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-5pm on

Wednesdays; and at 8.30am4.30pm on Fridays. NNDC offers free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery, and in turn provides staff and visitors to the building the opportunity to see a variety of artists’ work. Six exhibitions are held annually.

Any inquiries about the pictures, which are for sale, should be made to Paul through his website at www. paulmacrolandscapes.com, via info@paulmacro.com or by calling 07727 644092.

Council calls for more power North Norfolk District Council has written to the Government calling for greater powers to act when travellers set up unauthorised encampments, if they are in local authority areas with Temporary Stopping Places (TSPs). Currently, the council is able to issue a Direction to Leave Land but, if this is not complied with, it needs to go to court to obtain a Magistrates Order to allow it to take enforcement action. Two Temporary Stopping Places with facilities are available at Cromer and Fakenham, and North Norfolk District Council wants the power to be able to instruct travellers to move to those sites without delay when they set up unauthorised encampments. If travellers are unwilling to move, then the council wants the power to be able to move them off the unauthorised sites and away from the area immediately, rather than having to wait for a Magistrates Order, which can cause unacceptable delays, particularly at weekends.

Following a turbulent weekend for Cromer and Sheringham, North Norfolk District Council has written to the Communities Secretary of State, Sajid Javid. Council leader Tom FitzPatrick said: “We welcome all individuals and groups who respect our towns and countryside, our residents and other visitors, but where people come and set up unauthorised encampments, without thought for others, this does not show any respect. Businesses in the area rely on the summer visitors yet for one of the busiest weekends of the year some pubs and other businesses were shut and people felt intimidated and harassed.” North Norfolk District Council served a notice on the 23 illegally parked camper vans and caravans early on Saturday, August 19 to move by 3pm that day. The notice was not complied with and, had the travellers not left on the Sunday, the council would then have sought a Magistrates Order on the Monday to move them.

GREENBUILD IS HERE

The region’s biggest green lifestyle event, organised by North Norfolk District Council, is back. Greenbuild will be held on the weekend of September 9 and 10. Entry and parking are free to the event at Felbrigg Hall, with an option to buy three bags of compost for £3. There will be exhibitors, catering, a farmers’ and craft market, children’s activities and expert speakers. Gates open at 10.30am each day and close at 4.30pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday.

Wizard new winter line-up A magical musical “road trip” panto is the highlight of Sheringham Little Theatre’s newly-released winter line-up. A professional cast will chart the colourful tale of The Wizard of Oz, headed by Hana Steward (pictured) in the lead role of Dorothy. Hana, 22, from Wimbledon, has family in Sheringham and visited the Little Theatre as a child. She said: “I saw the panto one Christmas, so appearing in the show feels so special to me. I cannot wait to spend this Christmas in Kansas!” Munchkin children are being drawn from local dance schools and auditions will be held in early September for the chorus line of farmhands and villagers. Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “The Wizard of Oz is such a lovely story, but is not a regular traditional panto – so we look forward to doing something just a little bit different.” The show runs from

Ask Clive . . .

Each month, we look at popular questions from buyers and vendors. In this issue, Clive Hedges explains the service given by online estate agents.

December 9 to January 1. Details of the panto and other shows from September to April next year are now available in the Little Theatre brochure and online at its website. On October 25, the theatre is staging Joan, an anarchic cabaret which retells the story of Joan of Arc with drag King Lucy Jane Parkinson not only playing the gutsy gender warrior but also the men she defies. Visit www.sheringhamlittle theatre.com. Tickets via the box office on 01263 822347.

It does not seem possible that we have had the carnival, where has all the time gone? We have been busy since January selling the 60/40 raffle tickets. We sold 400 tickets and the lovely caravan personnel sold another 30 for us. This meant we were able to bank £258 for Love for Leo and our delighted winner, Andrew Dawson, was presented with the useful sum of £172. We could not have done this without the help of Tesco, who not only allowed us to sell our tickets in the foyer but made us very welcome. Many thanks to Sue Lowe, the managers and all the staff for being so kind. We also have to thank the carnival committee for their hard work and Roy Boy’s for sponsoring the raffle tickets. So we are coming to the Sheringham

Forties weekend again, September 16 and 17. As usual, we will be having our annual tombola on the Saturday. Weather permitting the stall will be near the town clock. Many thanks to all who donated prizes of excellent quality. All money raised helps Norfolk and Suffolk children with cerebral palsy. Recently, we were delighted to fund the purchase of a lightweight wheelchair for a young girl, which has enabled her to more easily enjoy family outings and school trips. Applications for help are welcomed. For any information or to donate tombola prizes please contact Moss on 01263 823637 or email moss.taylor@btinternet.com or Robina on 01263 823588, email reacgenet@btinternet.com.

This will not only potentially provide you with a sale without incurring any agency fees from ourselves but ensure that a committed buyer is found as when the offer is accepted a substantial reservation fee is paid thus gaining a strong likelihood of that buyer not withdrawing from the purchase. Whilst not all properties would be best served in this way, I have found that our vendors that have used the ‘Modern Auction Method’ find the selling expe-rience a pain free solution to the worry of buyers changing their mind and potentially running up substantial legal expenses with nothing to show for it, In addition the assurance of a fixed date for exchange and completion can be of great benefit.

Help! I want to buy a new build – is this a wise move? Buying a new home can prove a preferable solution to avoiding getting embroiled in a long upward chain. Quite often the developers can offer a varying array of incentives and options for the potential buyers including a part exchange of their own home, financial discounts for meeting timescales on the purchase, extra finishes and higher specifications etc. Whilst buying a new home is not for everyone it does give the new owner piece of mind that they will not have any ongoing repairs and maintenance for the first few years this is especially useful if the pennies are a bit tight after the move.

Park puts worldwide landscapes in the picture The International Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to the National Trust’s Sheringham Park for a third year this autumn, featuring more images than ever before. Located in the tranquil surroundings of the Bower Garden, more 40 images from around the world will be on display, as part of this year’s exhibition. The overall winner, though, is a Norfolk photographer, for his autumnal image taken in Snowdonia. “With thousands of fantastic entries from all over the world, it was a real honour to discover that the judges had chosen my image as the overall winner,” Lee Acaster from Diss revealed. “The shot itself was taken on a rainy autumn day. I noticed there were a few leaves left on a blackened birch tree, which were highlighted against the inky water of the lake behind. “Being quite abstract in nature, the image won’t appeal to everybody, but I was thrilled that the judges liked it as much as I did. I think the ambiguity of the subject, it’s not immediately clear what you are looking at, was a big part of its appeal to them. “There is no substitute for seeing photographs printed on a large scale to appreciate them properly, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the exhibition in the wonderful surroundings of Sheringham

Sheringham Sixth Form students once again produced some stunning results as all got the grades to go to their chosen universities and colleges. Seventy percent of students achieved A*-C grades and 100% achieved A*-E. With 100% pass-rate, seven Norfolk Scholars and more than a third of results at grade B or better, Year 13 students’ hard work and commitment paid off. “The results also reflect the dedicated professionalism of our staff and the continued support of our parents. Particular congratulations should go to Meghan Jarvis and Ally Smith who both achieved a superb A* and two A grades,” said Director of Sixth Ramin Keshavarz. One especially great story was that of Naomi Platt who is seen here celebrating with

her father as she receives her B,B,C grades at A Level and is off to her chosen University to read History. But when Naomi started at Sheringham High in Year 7 she had been diagnosed with dyslexia and dyscalculia which were having a profound effect on her progress and well-being. “Her difficulties were real barriers to her learning,” says father Adrian an ex primary head. “Her efforts and the school’s support have been

Music at The Mo continues throughout the autumn at Sheringham Museum. On September 29, Anto Morra will be appearing, doors open at 7 for 7.30pm start. Events tend to finish around 10pm. Anto has performed in numerous pubs, clubs and festivals including Glastonbury and Cambridge Strawberry Fair. One of his proudest moments was in 2015 when he had the honour of performing his own composition Edith Louisa Cavell in Norwich Cathedral as part of the centenary memorial service of Edith Cavell’s execution. The performance was broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 as part of their Morning Worship programme. He will be joined by Simon Tall with his writing, musings and music. April 2017 found him releasing a new album North American Bus Journeys part of the One Month Album”project. Also performing on that night will be Jess Morgan, who Folk radio UK described as “something truly special”. She is described as a “songwriter’s songwriter”. A cerebral storyteller, she takes her cue from roots music and contemporary and upfront British voices like Billy Bragg and Jarvis Cocker. Enter the museum via the rear entrance on Lifeboat Plain Lift or stairs access to the second floor You are welcome to bring your own drinks and glasses. The event is free.

outstanding.” Naomi puts her early improvements down to particular support staff believing in her early on. “The support staff laid the foundations and I gained in confidence. I did work hard but I have to say that everyone has played a part.” At GCSE 75% of Sheringham students achieved their 4+ grade in both English and maths, placing the school in the top five in the county again. Head Dr Andrew Richardson said: “We are very proud of our students’ results in a year of syllabus and grading change. Nearly a quarter achieved four or more A and A* grades which is outstanding. “Sheringham students are resilient and committed to their learning, and are supported by outstanding teaching, care and career advice.”

BEACH LIFE SUCCESS

The BeachLife activity week on Sheringham clifftop and beach has been another resounding success this year, attracting around 130 children and young people on each of the first two days alone. The Leas grassland came alive with the sounds of children laughing, singing and playing as they enjoyed four days of free activities provided by Sheringham churches. Each day started with the Beach Special, with songs, drama, games and competitions, followed by the Going Deeper sessions to give more insight into the theme of the day. Afternoon activities included the egg parachute challenge, junk modelling, house hunts, giant inflatables, a picnic and the infamous tide fight. Older children assembled again in the evenings for beach games, swimming, and the Sheropoly town trail, based loosely on a famous board game! “The glorious weather we enjoyed on Monday was not been repeated through the rest of the week, but the children seemed unperturbed and their smiles and laughter was undiminished,” said Peter Skivington, one of the organisers. Future events by the Beachlife team include a Light Party at the end of October and an activity day during February half-term. Sheringham

Cld a txt bcom ur will? Let me translate: Could a text become your will? Recent headlines have indicated that people will be able to use voicemail and text messages to make their wills, under a radical overhaul of law proposed by the Government’s legal advisors. The Law Commission has branded the current system of will-making as outdated and recommends that it be revolutionised to keep up with the digital age. At present, to be valid a will must be signed by the testator (the person making the will) in the presence of two witnesses, who are all together at the time and also sign the will. New proposals would allow a judge to decide, on the balance of probabilities, whether a recording or a note is an accurate summary of the deceased person’s wishes. Even deathbed changes of heart could be recorded. This sounds like a heyday for contentious probate lawyers. However, like all such

things, it is not quite as it first appears. The consultation document argues that this should apply not only to traditional written documents, but also where testators express their testamentary intentions in an electronic format, as well as in an audio or audio-visual recording. The Law Commission admits that these proposed changes could increase family arguments as relatives trawl through their departed loved-one’s technology for evidence of a change of mind. The consultation adds that: “A person who is seriously ill in hospital may have more immediate access to a tablet or smartphone than to a pen or paper, and may be more able to speak than to write. On the other hand, the potential recognition of electronic documents could prove a treasure trove for dissatisfied relatives. They may be tempted to sift through a huge number of texts, emails and other records in order to find one that could

be put forward as a will on the basis of a dispensing power.” These powers already exist in Australia, Canada, South Africa and several US states. In the wake of these announcements, caution has been urged both by lawyers and older-person’s special-interest groups amid concerns that the elderly and vulnerable could be even more subject to undue influence. Questions of updating tests as to mental capacity have also been raised by replacing current Victorian-era law with the principles of the modern Mental Capacity Act. One thing is certain, however, that the hasty and ill-judged making of a will can only cause distress, cost and delay for those left to sort it out. It is not the preparation of the document that is the main cost of a professionally-drawn will but the benefit of knowledge, experience, attention-to-detail and professional indemnity insurance.

Twelve charities/organisations took part and took on the task of selling raffle tickets to raise funds for their organisation. In addition, carnival volunteers also sold raffle tickets. The total raised was £3,069. Grateful thanks to RoyBoys Café for sponsoring the cost of printing the tickets. Each winning ticket was pulled from a bucket by the Sheringham Carnival Queen, Abbi and her attendants, Tasha and Chloe. Finally and by no means least was the Presentation of the Chairman’s Cup to Hilary Nelson (last year’s winner) for services rendered to our town of Sheringham, not just in carnival week but all through the year. Hilary was also presented with an arrangement of flowers from Sheringham’s Florist, Blooming Blooms.

Throughout history certain age milestones have developed at which significant changes are signalled and celebrated. In the later Middle Ages children were apprenticed to a tradesman at 10 to 15 years of age. Even earlier it was the custom to become the squire to a knight at 14 and serve in this way for a fixed period. What is especially interesting and significant, though, is the age at which most of these periods come to an end and the student embarks on a “new” phase of life. The age is pretty much universally 21. The end of this month sees the 21st anniversary of Sheringham Sixth Form. In the last 21 years, our Sixth Form has served its North Norfolk students and achieved exceptional results every year; spurring countless numbers on to university and work with the learning weapons to take on the world. With its great staff, outstanding care and small class sizes, the Sixth remains the place to be and stay in 2017 and beyond. Sheringham Sixth is YOUR sixth form college and it has truly come of age like the knights of old; a shining example of courage in its educational approaches, fairness in its treatment of all and generosity in its teaching and care.

ADVERTISERS FEATURE

Is it time to do something about your kitchen?

Looking for a complete new kitchen? Or would a makeover be a better option for you and your bank balance? Nothing dates a kitchen like worn worktops, damaged doors, stained grouting, cracked tiles and burned surfaces. But renovating your kitchen and bringing the décor bang up-to-date needn’t cost the earth and could add upwards of 5% to the value of your property. To give you an idea, home makeover experts Granite Transformations have put together some handy hints for updating your kitchen décor. Layout – if you’re comfortable with your layout and its familiar oven-sink-fridge work triangle, then don’t rip everything out and fit totally new units, with all the expense and disruption that entails. Instead, reface your work surfaces with composite granite, quartz, recycled glass or porcelain composites that fit right over existing worktops and replace cabinet doors with new made-to-measure fittings, leaving the underlying carcases intact. This also means no rewiring or new pipework, cutting installation costs by more than half. Colours – your décor is a reflection of your personality and lifestyle, so a kitchen makeover gives an opportunity to ditch unfashionable or eccentric finishes and explore fresh colour and style directions. Black worktops can become white or bold colours, timbergrain cabinet doors can be transformed into high gloss acrylic and you can add splashes of brightness with

glass mosaic panels or an island unit in a contrasting colour. Remodelling means the choice is yours. Practicality – if you have laboured in the past with resealing, sanding, treating and polishing stone, timber and laminate worktops, then now is the time to choose a modern, maintenance-free composite material that is non-porous, flame-resistant and withstands stains, scratches, cuts,

burns and knocks. Today’s agglomerate granite, quartz and recycled surfaces look like luxurious natural stone, but need just an occasional wipeover to keep their sheen and come in a wide choice of colours. Splashbacks – you’d be surprised how a decorative, yet practical splashback can enhance or transform the look of a kitchen. Choose a regular upstand in the same material to run around the worktops, protecting against dirt and bacteria, a half-height glass mosaic splashback that adds texture and sparkle, or perhaps an extravagant, full wall panel in large tiles or seamless sheeting. Modern, slimline agglomerate and polyurethane-backed mosaics will fit over existing tiles and surfaces, making fitting a breeze. Appliances – with the saving you enjoy from a makeover rather than installing a new fitted kitchen, you should be able to splash out on selected appliances, sinks, taps and accessories to set off your updated décor. The beauty of standardsized kitchen units and white goods is that new items can be dropped into place with little fuss. So investigate new cooking technology like steam ovens, induction hobs, flush-mounted cookers and builtin microwaves, as well as undermount ceramic bowls and, going back in time, a deep butler’s sink.

Free singing workshops Free singing workshops are starting in Sheringham this September. They are being run by Sing Your Heart Out and will be Mondays from September 11, 2-3.30pm at the Lighthouse. The sessisons follow a successful programme of taster events across North Norfolk earlier this year. SYHO is not a choir but drop-in sessions to promote good mental health and well-being. Sessions are open to anyone over 18 who likes the idea of singing in a group. People with experience of mental health problems and challenges are always specially welcome. SYHO is run by volunteers but the sessions are led by experienced, professional voice coaches used to working with varied groups in a community setting. You don’t need to have a good voice or be able to read music. There is no need to book. Refreshments are provided, and the sessions are free of charge, though

donations are welcome.. Full details and list of term dates on www.syho. org.

ALSO AT THE LIGHTHOUSE

This year’s Stir 17 season will be rounded off on October 8 with a visit by Dave Bell and The Moment Band. Dave is a musician, singer-songwriter, worship leader and author. He is Worship Pastor at Alive Church in Lincoln and frequently involved in The One Event. His ministry takes him all over the world, leading worship with The Moment. Ian Savory, senior pastor at Lighthouse Community Church, said “With these Stir 17 events, we will be hearing other Christians tell their story and sharing their perspective on what God is doing in our day and in their area of influence.” The Stir 17 evenings start at 7pm, with coffee from 6.30pm.

lie of the land with NOEL GANT Have you had a chance to visit the art exhibition put on by the Sheringham Society? It was a delight to wander around looking at the vast mixture of styles of media on display and 20% of the picture price is donated this year to EACH and the air ambulance. I returned to Sheringham in 1979 and visited the exhibition in Wyndham Street. I bought a watercolour by May Ayers. I have it in my “studio” to this day. I also remember the lady responsible for the show and she is still putting her fine tuning the finesse of the annual event. Maureen Cooper, accept a virtual bouquet from Lie of the Land. I would offer you one of my paintings but know that you certainly have no damp patches on your walls to cover up! The carnival was claimed a success again this year. More on that subject next edition. I remember asking Grandfather why he always wore one glove. He was not a golfer. He said: “That’s like this here, Boy. On the one hand that could be cold, while on the other . . .”
