Be a Tourist not a Travel Agent I have worked in the travel industry for over 7 years and love what I do. I have been fortunate to travel to many places such as the USA, Caribbean and extensively within Europe. I have tried all sorts of holidays myself including 5* luxury hotels, self-catering 3* apartments, skiing, private villas, camping and cruising. So I can give first hand advice on numerous destinations. All you need to do is tell me what you enjoy and want from your holiday and I will do the rest.

in the Co-operative Membership Scheme and you can earn points on your next holiday as well as throughout the Co-operative brand.

Imagine having your own dedicated travel advisor available at a time that suits you, taking care of any holiday requirements using the very latest travel technology. I always keep up-to-date with new products and destinations, making sure my finger is on the button.

Not only can I offer you fantastic prices with great discounts, but if you book a holiday abroad you will receive a ÂŁ1 Marks & Spencer, John Lewis or Boots gift card for all those last minute holiday bits (dispatched 1 month prior to travel). This offer is available on any foreign holiday travelling up to 31st March 2014.

Working as a home-based travel advisor allows me more time without the distractions of a high street shop. I have many repeat clients whom I have dealt with me over the years. I have arranged package holidays, flights, bespoke holidays, city breaks, camping adventures and more. Now as a Personal Travel Advisor working from home I have more flexibility for customers to contact me at a time that suits you, rather than between 9 and 5. Booking with me as your Personal Travel Advisor, you are safe in the knowledge that you are financially protected, with ABTA membership and ATOL bonding, you will have complete peace of mind that you are booking with a secure travel organisation, with the backing of the Co-operative Travel Group. As an independent agent, I am able to book with hundreds of companies and am not biased to use any particular one. I use the right one for you. As an added bonus, I can get you enrolled

T

he Eos Programme is a personal development programme for women, which is proving life-changing for many. It was launched in Norwich last April by Jenny Eaton and Richard Jackson, and they will soon be running their first event in London. Eos is the Titan goddess of the dawn; each morning she rides her chariot across the sky to herald in the new day. This reflects the new start feeling that many women get from attending the Programme. So when was the last time you thought about how your thinking shapes your life?

So many people go through life feeling trapped; focusing on what they 'have to do', believing they are at the mercy of circumstances, and feeling hemmed in by other people’s needs and expectations. The Eos Programme frees you from these misconceptions and helps you to create more helpful ways of thinking. A shift in your thinking leads to a shift in your behaviour, leading to new life 'results'. Having it all is a myth. The reality is that, as women, we make crucial choices about 28 NR29 guide

career, family and aspirations, which chart the course of our lives. That’s why it is essential that those choices be rooted in our own values – not in the expectations imposed by others. Eos doesn’t hand you the answers or tell you how to live your life. That’s up to you. Using the latest neuropsychological research applied with proven techniques, The Eos Programme gives you the time and space to deeply consider your values, goals and choices; reflect, re-focus and connect with a fresh life purpose. Only by creating a congruent life path can we achieve our full potential for personal happiness and achievement within our home and work lives. The Eos Programme can be of great benefit to you if ... are re-evaluating your • You life after a key shift. Perhaps

your children have moved on to school or higher education. Maybe you have come through a divorce or a serious illness. Or, perhaps you are facing redundancy or retirement. It could be you simply know there is more to

The Eos Programme is run over two days held one month apart. It is unlike any other personal development you may have done before. It challenges you. It can free you from unhelpful assumptions about yourself and the world, which may be shaping your life. Identify and release the negative thinking patterns that hold you back, whilst creating positive habits to take you forward to your best life. It gives you the space and time to reflect, re-focus and connect with a fresh life purpose. Eos poses the question -

Are you living your best life? ...

if not, how will you get there?

The Eos Programme is currently running regular courses in Norwich. The Programme is based on scientific and physiological research and has no religious affiliation. We run regular FREE two hour Taster Sessions to give you an idea of what we do. Find out more, including video testimonials at www.eosprogramme.com 0843 523 5373 info@eosprogramme.com


Eos Case Study Sarah Morgan attended the Eos Programme last summer, and since then her life has changed significantly for the better. She had been working long hours, striving to fulfil obligations she didn’t enjoy and feeling guilty when she took time out for herself. She had re-located from Kent in order to create a better work-life balance, but soon found that she’d just replicated her busy life in a new place! Sarah describes her experience on day one of the programme as ‘really quite shocking’ – she’d never taken the time to sit and really think and reflect on her life before, and she identified lots habits and ways of thinking which she didn’t want in her life any more. She dropped two of her jobs, which she wasn’t enjoying and

now has more space to allow new, more fulfilling things into her life. She’s developing her business as an image and colour consultant, and is expanding this to launch a new business in charity fashion sales.

‘I realised I can do different things now, things that before I didn’t feel equipped to do because I believed I didn’t have the skills. Now I have the confidence and belief to either develop them or ask for help. I never would have asked for help before, but I’ve found that people usually are really happy to help out, which has made a big difference to my business. Eos has given me the confidence and self-belief to follow my heart and my gut instincts.’

Sarah now spends more time with her husband, family and friends, and is for the first

ALBIES TAXIS

time in years, really enjoying her leisure time. Eos has had such a profound effect on her life, she recently bought her husband a place on the affiliate programme (Winning Edge) and booked her two sons on the Eos Youth Programme. Sarah said, ‘Once you’ve got

the Eos concepts in your life, you want all your family and friends to have it, and it can be tricky when they don’t! It’s made my relationships much stronger and more rewarding; I’ve also made a really lovely bunch of new women friends, which has opened up a whole new world for me. I’ve gone from “I’m not the sort of person who does anything out of the ordinary” to “Just watch me!”.’

I have a passion for the great outdoors . . I was born in Norfolk and have spent many years enjoying the wildlife and countryside this diverse habitat offers. I was brought up in a farming environment and was handed a gun at a very early age. With my father, I spent many a cold day (and night) out with a gun learning field craft. This experience has served me well, as now I am able to use these skills to track and get close to wildlife subjects. The Norfolk countryside offers a vast array of wildlife which allows me to capture that special moment. When the weather and the wildlife is not at its best, I take advantage of the beautiful Norfolk skies which at the right time can be magnificent.

I am currently holding an exhibition at the Granary Art Gallery, for the summer season. Here you can look and purchase images, either framed, mounted or as prints only. All images displayed on my website, facebook and flickr pages are also available for purchase. I also offer tuition days on a one-to-one basis in the local area, based around wildlife, landscape or a bit of both. These days are suited for beginners to advanced amateurs looking to develop their skills and technique. The Granary Art Gallery The Granary Stores & Tea Shop Ranworth Staithe, NR13 6HY

I

t all started with a friend saying, “Do you think you could sew a button on my coat for me. I can’t even thread a needle”. This was just one of many similar requests that I have received from friends and family over the years, to which my answer has always been, “Yes, of course”. From that point onwards I have continued to say, “Yes, of course” whenever a customer has requested the completion of a sewing task. If you can’t wear that garment because it is too long, too loose, too tight or has a broken zip or you need some some furnishings made then why not give me a call.

“Solving all your everyday sewing problems”

Although no job is too small, a challenge is what I thrive on, whether it be creating a bespoke jacket based on a photo or the embellishment of a bridesmaid’s dress. My website will give you a flavour of the customer focused items that I have created and their responses to the completed tasks. If you feel I can help you in any way with sewing based problems then please contact me.

Extract on Sailing Regattas from

Life in the Flegg Villages 1800-1950 Sailing, both off shore and on the Broads, became increasingly popular during the latter half of the 19th century. The Rollesby and Ormesby Regatta was established by the end of the 1860s. Patronised by leading Flegg and Yarmouth families, the Regatta soon became an annual summer event. The Yarmouth Mercury 22nd July 1893 reported: The annual regatta in connection with the Ormesby and Rollesby Sailing Club was held on Thursday on the magnificent sheet of water that extends a comfortable distance on the south side of Rollesby Bridge to Filby and is locally known as Ormesby Big Broad … Last year this aquatic fete was restarted after a long lapse. It used to be looked upon as the occasion for a regular gala day among the country village folk for miles around. A large number of people witnessed the racing from the bridge and along the road. On the ground by the bridge a small fair was in full swing. The Sportsman’s Arms, a well known fishing station, was well patronised ... Many years later, the East Anglian Cruising Club organised a similar Regatta during the years after the 2nd World War. The Regatta was held at Thurne Mouth and the 1950 event drew a record entry of

95 boats. Offshore sailing regattas were started in Yarmouth in the 1830s and would have had many craft from the Fleggs regularly competing in them. In the early 1880s there is evidence that for at least two years, Winterton had its own regatta. The second held at the end of July 1881 was reported in the Yarmouth Independent: The second annual Roads Regatta came off here on Thursday last. The weather throughout the day was beautifully fine; but there was hardly sufficient wind for sailing … During the day Mr J Hall’s steam yacht Lurline and Mr J A Mottram’s yacht cruised about in the roads … The cliffs and sands were thronged with a large concourse of people and many of these availed themselves to a sail in response to the persistent appeals of the owners of the several sailing boats.

WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY? by Inspired Therapies

R

eflexology works on the reflex points that are found on the hands and feet. A reflex is an automatic response to the stimulation of a nerve and there are thousands of nerve endings in the feet. Each nerve travels up through the body to an organ or system such as the brain, or digestive system. By applying alternating pressure with my thumbs and fingers on these nerve endings I can detect areas of imbalance or congestion within the body by the irregular texture of the nerve endings. This can be a popping sensation under the skin, tightness or crunching due to the build up of waste products or minerals on the nerve endings. These deposits can obstruct the flow of messages along the nerves to the brain and cause the system or organ to be sluggish. Reflexology breaks down these deposits removing the blockage and stimulating the nerve to send a message to the brain which, in turn stimulates the organ or system.

It is not just the organs and body systems that benefit, the nerves responsible for relaxing the body can also be stimulated, so the treatments may improve states of anxiety, stress, insomnia and mental fatigue. This is a wonderful non-invasive treatment and if you have any questions regarding the benefits it can bring you, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01493 805046.

Eleanor Porter

By improving the flow of these nerve messages, the muscle fibres in and around the organs contract, blood flow increases and any congestion and toxins within the system can be released and removed to enable the body to heal itself.

JULY & AUGUST IN THE GARDEN Containers & Baskets

 Water hanging baskets & containers daily in hot weather & feed with a high potash fertiliser such as “Tomorite” weekly  Dead head all flowering plants to encourage more flowers

Beds & Borders

 Spray roses routinely with “Roseclear” to prevent pests & diseases and remove faded blooms on repeat-flowering varieties of roses to encourage further flowers in late summer  Plant late summer flowering perennials ie. Echinacea, Rudbeckia, Sedum and Asters in gaps in the borders so the garden doesn’t look dull when summer bedding fades  Think about varieties of spring-flowering bulbs you require and start buying when they are available in August

Fruit & Vegetables

 Keep feeding tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and similar crops with a high potash fertiliser such as “Tomorite”  Train leading shoots on cucumbers up a cane; the longer the main shoot grows, the greater the yield  Protect ripening fruits such as strawberries, raspberries & currants from birds by covering with crop protection netting. Make a frame using canes or tree stakes

Lawns, Paths & Around the Garden

 Apply feed, weed & mosskiller products to lawns, ensure this is watered in if no rain within 48 hours of application  Use “Provado Lawn Grub Killer” to help prevent leatherjackets which will eat grass roots. Apply when you see Craneflies hopping in the grass  Apply residual weedkiller such as “Pathclear” to paths, patios & drives to kill existing weeds & prevent new growth  In very dry weather raise the cut height on your lawn mower or stop cutting altogether to allow grass to re-grow. Add grass clippings to your compost heap or bin unless you’ve recently used weed or moss killer on lawn NR29 guide

50 years is a long time in education, in fact it is nearly half a century ago that Flegg High School welcomed its first pupils, way back in 1964. We are now delighted to invite alumni, former staff and members of the wider community to join current students, staff and governors to celebrate this significant landmark in the school’s history. We are planning a year-long programme of education, events, sponsorship opportunities and celebration and we need your support. We intend to launch the celebrations in September 2013 culminating in the official 5th birthday in September 2014. We also have plans to leave a legacy by developing our former agricultural block into a Community Aspirations Centre. During the day it will be used by groups of students to develop and enhance skills which will allow them to fulfil their aspirations. Outside of the school day we intend to open the doors to others in the local area as a place to learn, explore and improve a whole range of competences. We want to try and involve the community in this project as much as possible, so if you can offer pledges of any sort please do get in touch. So whether it is to pledge support, tell us your memories of the school or just to keep up to speed with developments please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and making this a truly 1493 74927 tremendous year! flegg5@flegg.norfolk.sch.uk


good news Filby’s p May rais lant sale in Filby Ch ed £478 for urc raised in h - the most 21 year s! Over 200 people gathered in Flegg High School for the première of Martham Stories on Friday 24th May. We enjoyed an eighty-five minute film of interviews, animation, photographs and local scenes, all of such quality that time flew by. The students displayed high levels of creative and technical ability, whilst their subjects, Martham residents over the last 80 years, had the time of their lives. Some of the stories were informative, tracing Martham's earliest history through archaeology, mapping and metal detecting. Others were serious especially those about the war years. The death of a childhood friend in a bombing raid; a lucky near-miss during a strafing; coping with evacuees and with food rationing, the wartime mystery that is Heigham Holmes. We heard how shops and businesses have changed over the years, especially the impact of the 1950s closure of the railway. Throughout, there were murmurs of recognition from the audience and everyone said "You got it right". The young participants were presented with their copy of the film and spoke of all they had learned, how good it was to meet wpeople who are part of their own history, how the experience may affect their own futures.
