RNLI at the Royal Norfolk Show helping to save lives

RNLI volunteers were at the Royal Norfolk Show. The Community Safety Team and RNLI Education spent two days in the Broads Village, working with the Broads Authority to inform visitors on how to stay safe near water and help others who find themselves in trouble in the water.

The volunteers were talking to children, parents and grandparents, informing them how to stay safe near water - sadly around 150 people drown each year and 50% of these had no intention to go into water when they left home. So the first message they got over was FLOAT FOR YOUR LIFE - if you fall into water, fight your instinct to swim until the cold water shock passes, float to live. Continued on page 4...

RNLI at the Royal Norfolk Show helping to save lives Continued from front cover...

If you fall unexpectedly into water: 1. Fight your instinct to thrash around 2. Lean back, extend your arms and legs 3. If you need to, gently move them around to help you float 4. Float until you can control your breathing 5. Only then call for help or swim to safety

people being near the water”.

The practical part was education on using a Throw Line: Dave is in trouble! He’s fallen in the water, he doesn’t have a life jacket or buoyancy aid on and he’s getting cold, can you help? Grab a throw line and see if you can HELP.

At the end of the second day the RNLI volunteers took part in the Sunset Parade in the main ring. Photo on front cover: one RNLI Volunteers and Broads Ranger Photo above: Throw Lines in action

With the help of RNLI volunteers and Broads Rangers they were shown what a throw bag is and how to get help by phoning 999 and asking for the Coastguard then how to use the throw bag and have a go.


Throw Bags are at all Broads Authority moorings on the broads - a lot of people had seen them but didn’t know what they were for or how to use them. After their talk and practice throwing they were happy to use them and help save a life.

Time on your hands Have you got time to spare? Do you like helping people? Do you like having some fun?

People were very interested in the throw line, not only people who own boats but those who live by or near water - these people were given information on how to obtain throw lines. This puts more aids near water to save lives.

Then why not come along and get involved in the community and help us to help others local.

For more information please contact Lions Hazel or Brian on 01263 821276 or email

Robert Mann, Community Safety Officer at Happisburgh RNLI, said “It was a very worthwhile two days. The number of people of all ages who were aware of our FLOAT campaign was very pleasing and shows the message is getting out and hopefully the number of drownings will fall. The large number of people trying the throw lines who would be happy to use them to help people in trouble, will also help save lives”.

We are holding a Race Night on Saturday 27 July 6.45pm for 7.30pm start at The Morley Club, Cromer Road, Sheringham. Tickets cost £9.50 each which include a hot Fish & Chip supper. Why not come along and have some fun. In aid of Sheringham & Cromer Lions local causes.

Focus on Sidestrand Hall Special School

Sidestrand Hall School is a complex needs special school educating over 180 children who travel in from all areas of Norfolk. Our pupils have a wide range of high needs including autism and ADHD with many having more than one condition. Some pupils board in our residential unit for one or two nights per week or in our residential ASD unit for four nights a week.

Our charity shop The school is heavily supported by our registered charity with most of the money being raised via Strands our charity shop in Cromer. Money raised supports activities that enhance pupils learning and personal development such as subsidising trips, paying for visiting activities and more recently the purchase of a bus to convert to a school library. Our library was converted to a classroom when our numbers increased due to the shortage of special school places in Norfolk. We are currently raising money to buy new library books.

The low prices in Strands are appreciated by the local community – come and see!

We are always grateful to accept donations which can be dropped off at the shop and we are now able to accept electrical items too. The shop is also the only North Norfolk drop off point for Leeway who provide specialist services to adults, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse supporting over

10,000 people per year across Norfolk and Suffolk. Further information is available on their website

Strands charity shop collects the following items on behalf of Leeway : • Toiletries for women and children: new only • Female hygiene products: new only • Baby nappies and wet wipes: new only

Our pupils also do work experience in the shop, gaining valuable life skills and they love to be involved- serving customers, sorting stock, organizing displays etc. The pupils are also busy constructing items for sale at our summer fete – any left will be sold in Strands but the items usually sell like hotcakes! Raffle and tombola items for us to use at the fete can also be dropped off at the shop.

Call for Volunteers The shop cannot run without our wonderful shop manager Sheila Neale and our dedicated team of volunteers however we are short of volunteers.

If you have some time to spare and would like to support our wonderful school by being a Strands volunteer please call the shop on 01263 515188 between 10am and 4pm or Wendy Forster at Sidestrand Hall School on 01263 579287 for more information and an application form. There are a variety of tasks that need done to keep the shop running effectively which we can allocate volunteers to.

“It’s a recurrent misconception that a larger firm is better.”

I am Clare Mayell and I own Silver and Ward Solicitors in Sheringham. I am an extremely competent and experienced solicitor. I appreciate that any time of the year can be a difficult time fo or many people to resolve legal issues of worry and concern, for example, making a will or Lasting Power of Attorney. As I have worked for 2 larger local firms I know what clients want and expect. My charges are significantly less than other solicitors in North Norfolk or Norwich and I provide 22 years of expertise and exceptional service. I pride myself in being one of the only solicitors who offffers a FREE FIRST APPOINTMENT, so clients can come in and obtain some initial advice and discuss costs and then make an informed decision. At a larger firm you just pay more. When a client rings or walks through the door they invariably get to speak to me as this personal and direct approach is important to my clients and I. I ensure complete confidentiality is an absolute priority. I advise new clients to “shop around” as I know that my charges are significantly less than other solicitors but I can offer the same expertise, if not better. I have and can act for clients across Norrffolk and the Country as we now have the use of Skype, emails etc. so it enables me to act for clients further afield. The reason that clients, near and far, instruct Silver and Ward is because of my expertise, exceptional service and competitive costs.

“I would say to any potential client with a legal issue or worry in 2019 to come and meet me face to face for a FREE FIRST APPOINTMENT, as you have nothing to lose but all to gain.

Home visits can be arranged or appointments outside of office hours including Saturdays. 0 1263 8 23465 or email 01263 823465

Thornage Hall Independent Living 30th Anniversary

The learning journey begins at birth.

As a parent, my hope is that my children will continue to progress and enjoy their learning into a place of work, enabling them to live independent lives, and follow their own path to happiness. But for those born with a learning disability, these most fundamental of expectations are dramatically restricted. For the last few months I have been working with a Norfolk based charity which has been breaking the mould in providing diverse living, working and learning opportunities for adults with a learning disability.

In June this year Thornage Hall Independent Living celebrated 30 years since it opened its doors. In that time the charity has done much to improve aspirations for those with a learning disability and for their families.

Based in the heart of North Norfolk, just a five minutes’ drive from Holt, the charity provides supported living for 27 adults, each of whom hold individual tenancies.

Support is on hand to ensure that they can live independently and that they can pursue working and learning activities of their choosing, and there is quite a choice. A further 30 adults, known as day service users, also travel to the site each week to take part in the working and learning activities.

The charity was formed following the donation of the Hall itself and a 70 acre parcel of land by the 22nd Baron of Hastings, whose second son, Justin, was born with Downs Syndrome. Justin attended a Steiner school in Hampshire and it is this philosophy which provides the cornerstone for the charity.

Rudolph Steiner was the founder of biodynamic farming and of Anthroposophy, a philosophy which holds that ‘a perfectly formed spirit and destiny belongs to each human being’. Everybody who works at Thornage Hall upholds this philosophy, ensuring every adult who lives there, or who attends the day services, are supported to

pursue their own destiny.

On 18 July the charity is holding a Support Worker recruitment open day. This is part of an ongoing commitment to ensure sufficient skilled and experienced staff are available to meet the future aspirations of its tenants and day service users.

The 30th anniversary has been marked by the opening of a new activities center and fully accessible communal space, alongside the launch of an ambitious £1m fundraising appeal to build Orchard Lodge. The new building will house four flats, all built to full accessibility standards for those living with a learning disability.

Independent Living, providing equality of opportunity into older age for those who are born with a learning disability.

Orchard Lodge will mark the next chapter in the history of Thornage Hall

Support Worker Recruitment Open Day Thursday July 18th 2019

Passionate? Caring? Supporting? Following a review of our rotas to ensure an improved work/life balance for staff we are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to join our unique and diverse charity. Based in the heart of North Norfolk, just five minutes drive from Holt, our charity provides supported living for 27 adults, each of whom hold individual tenancies. Support workers ensure that our tenants can live as independently as possible and that they can pursue the working and learning activities of their choosing. We have a number of full and part-time Support Worker vacancies, including weekend shifts, available and are offering potential Support Workers the chance to visit our site, to meet tenants and our current staff teams.

The recruitment day will be split into 3 sessions: • 09.30 - 12.00 • 13.30 - 16.00 • 16.30 - 19.00 In order for you to get the most from your visit we would encourage you to book into one of the sessions that suits you, at which point you will be entered into a free prize draw for a special Thornage Hall produce box. If you can’t book don’t worry, we will still be keen to see you. ‘My team are passionate about ensuring equality of opportunity for adults with a learning disability to live the life that they choose. If you share this passion please come and meet us, we are keen to meet you.’ Sam Loosley, Director of Independent Living. • no: 297496 • Member of Association of Camphill Communities

Classic Car Rally at Gresham Following on from their very well supported and successful event in 2018, the Friends of All Saints Gresham are running another Classic Car Rally and Craft Fair on Gresham Village Park and in the Village Hall (NR11 8RT) on Saturday 20 July.

There will be a wide variety of craft stalls (both inside and outside the Hall) demonstrating the skills and talent of local craftspeople including handmade jewellery, art, home furnishings, kitchen items, children’s books, handmade cards, pottery, needlework, woodcraft and basketry.

Hot lunches, strawberry teas and homemade cakes together with tea coffee and cold drinks

will all be available throughout the day. The Broadland Ukes will be playing between 2.15 and 3.30pm and amongst other entertainment, there will be a Bonanza Raffle, face painting and games and quizzes for children (of all ages!)

The Friends’ principal aim is to preserve the Church building and its amenities for future generations, of villagers and visitors, and to fit the building for an enhanced role within both the immediate and wider Community.

The Village Hall will be open from 11am, with cars welcome on the Village Park from 10.30am. Judging of the ‘Best in Show’ will take place between 1pm and 2pm, with the prize ceremony, taking place in the Village Hall at 2pm.

The Church has been an integral landmark within the landscape for 1000 years already and the Friends hope that supporters will join with them to ensure that the building continues to play an active and growing role for the next 1000 years.

As with last year funds raised from the event will go toward the cost (over £100,000) of urgent repairs to the 1000 year old, round

Reepham Classic Car and Bike Festival

Entry adults £3 children (under 18) free. Free parking on site

Facel Vega. While the French motorcycle industry never achieved the success of rivals from Germany, Britain, and Italy, it #developed the iconic Velosolex, ‘the one with the engine mounted on top of the front wheel’.

This Year we Celebrate les Automobiles Français

Attend as an exhibitor and join the line-up of some of the county’s finest classic cars and bikes, or as a visitor and stroll through a slice of motoring history. There will be music in the Kings Arms courtyard, and Frenchthemed food and drink available in The Dial House and in around the Market Square. The event is free to the public and it has become one of the highlights of the year for classic car fans and local families alike.

Now in its 6th year, Reepham Classic Car and Bike Festival has become one of Norfolk’s most successful and attractively located shows, with over a hundred Classic cars and motorbikes displayed in the beautiful Georgian Market Square. Taking place on Sunday 29 September, between 11am and 4pm, we will be focusing on French classics to feature the glorious history of these, sometimes eccentric but always innovative, vehicles.

To register your car, bike or club for the event, contact Hugh or Peter at Once accepted, a numbered pass will be sent as confirmation that a place has been reserved for your vehicle. Due to the increasing popularity of the event each exhibitor must display the pass in the windscreen to gain access on the day.

French manufacturers have a tradition of developing distinctive designs for mass manufacture - the Citroen 2CV and DS, Renault 16 and 5, Peugeot 404, and Simca 1000 are well loved examples. There were more exotic and rare cars too, such as models from Bugatti, Delahaye and the

In collaboration with Ken’s Fish and Chip shop in Wroxham in the Broads, the museum is providing the printed newsprint wrappers for the takeaway service.

The newspaper includes a range of museum news and carries a voucher for a £1 off admission for visitors bringing the voucher with them to the Museum.

Museum Manager, Lynn Kerslake, advised that "we have really seen an improvement in our visitor numbers by undertaking this novel way of advertising to visitors to the Broads.

Ken's Fish and Chip shop Manager, Michael, advised “We thought this was a great idea and offers our customers something a bit different and we are teaming up with a great local visitor attraction so it’s a win win for us both! The look of surprise on peoples' faces when they see their order with the outer "news print" wrapping is priceless! Customers have even come into the shop just to get a wrapper to read!” The “newspaper” chip paper has been designed and printed by Century Printers in Stalham.

Lynn Kerslake continued "The Museum is celebrating being open for 25 years this year and a Celebration Day is being organised for September to mark the occasion. We are continually working on developing our collection, and our Tornado cockpit will soon be available for visitors to actually sit in for the first time! The Museum is a great place to visit for a day out in Norfolk and is fun for all the family. There are over 25 exhibition rooms as well as outdoor exhibits and over 10,000 items to view. All entry tickets are valid for 12 months as many visitors arrive not realising how much there is to see and do here, let alone sampling our home-made treats and eats from our onsite cafe, Crumbs".

Overstrand Evening WI

By tradition, the June meeting has become an informal, pre-summer celebration.

Weather permitting, those who are willing and able to enjoy a walk, do so whilst other members are more sedentary, play board games and /or prepare the strawberries.

Although this delight is enjoyed in Overstrand, and not Wimbledon, the members are not charged exhorbitant prices. In fact, they pay nothing at all!


Once the two halves of our WI family were reunited, our President conducted the business part of the meeting briefly, allowing members to concentrate their attentions on the serious enjoyment of strawberries, cream and homemade shortbread.

This being happily accomplished, the meeting ended with a reminder that our next meeting will be on 17 July. Our speaker that month will be Lynn Hatch, who is the British Legion Poppy Appeal organiser, and the competition letter will be N. This will no doubt result in an interesting array of objects which all start with that letter.

Where there’s a Will there’s a War? Miranda Marshall, Director, Hayes + Storr

With the number of Wills being contested in the High Court up 25% on recent years, it is more important than ever to secure your last wishes to avoid claims upsetting your legacy plans. The surge in claims is put down to increasingly complex family relationships. The landmark 2017 judgement in Ilott v The Blue Cross overturned accepted legal thinking. In that case Melita Jackson left most of the £486,000 estate to animal charities, but her estranged daughter Heather Ilott made a successful claim against the estate, arguing that her mother had not made reasonable provision for her.

The Supreme Court criticised the decisionmaking process of the lower Court of Appeal in the Ilott case and made some useful points. The Court of Appeal had given little weight to the testator’s clear wishes; which was wrong. While the wishes can be overridden, they are part of the circumstances of the case and must be taken into account. The Court of Appeal thought that charities have no ‘needs’ and therefore, unlike a person, they are not prejudiced if their benefit is reduced. For all Inheritance Act claimants, apart from spouse, ‘need’ is a necessary but not sufficient condition for an order. Awards are limited to maintenance (rather than a lump sum) and so, had an award by way of housing, been appropriate, the right order would be likely to have been a life interest, rather than an outright sum.

Cases since Ilott, such as Thompson v Ragget [2018], show that these principles are not being consistently applied by the Courts. As ever, the

decisions are specific to the facts but Orders for capital sums by non-spouses are still being made, despite all the guidance of the Supreme Court. Reasons given include such an Order allowing all parties to move on from the estate litigation with all links being severed and the estate being substantial so there was ‘enough to go round everyone’. The closeness of the relationship between the deceased and the beneficiary of the Will has been held to make a difference.

Modern legal approaches include setting up a trust which would distribute funds in line with your wishes but could adapt to any change in circumstances instead of sticking rigidly to the Will. Communicating intentions to family members to avoid unpleasant surprises, appointing a committed and competent executor all help prevent misunderstandings when it is too late.

If you would like further advice on this matter please contact Miranda on 01328 710210. If you require advice on any other legal matter call 01692 503081 or email

More than ever making a Will is something that must be done with advice and careful thought. It is clear that documenting your reasons for making any testamentary dispositions likely to be unpopular needs professional input and careful documentation.

Thanks from all 3266 of us to all 70,000 of you!

As you read this, be proud that during 2018 2019, we the citizens across the 200 square miles of North Norfolk, collectively provided emergency food for well over 3000 of our fellow citizens in North Norfolk. One third of those North Norfolk citizens you fed were 1295 children and because of you those children across our region continued to get the nourishment they need during a time of crisis for their families.

At this point some readers will be shaking their heads and talking about this unacceptable situation, which is that in 2019 we are seeing a rise of the need for Foodbanks. No-one will disagree with that sentiment, however for many, often complex reasons, this is the situation we find ourselves in right here, right now. And together we’re tackling that challenge head on.

Most of us take the food we eat every day for granted. Most of us don’t believe that we will ever be in a position where we can’t buy food for our families. But crises happen, often without warning, and ordinary people just like us – people who may be your friends, your neighbours, members of your own family, old school friends, other parents - find themselves in this unthinkable situation.

Financial crises come in many shapes and sizes, including, redundancy, bereavement, relationship breakdown, benefit delays, illness, low income during out-of-season periods, unplanned but essential expenditure and debts which can grow because of any of these things, to name just a few. These situations are often not anyone’s ‘fault’ and so there is little to be gained by trying to apportion blame. Instead, lets continue doing what we’ve done so far and support these people when they most need us to.

are in need of our short-term help whilst they are ‘getting back on their feet’.

This is a real team effort. Together we make this essential support possible for our fellow citizens when they need it and so a heartfelt thank you for your continuing generosity.

Please visit us at or email

Cromer and District Foodbank can only continue this work because the citizens of North Norfolk give generously of their own food, their time and their money to support our work. And it’s a little-known fact that during the last 12 months you have donated an amazing 36,500 kg of food to our warehouse in Cromer so that through us you can continue to support other North Norfolk citizens across our district during these most difficult times.

We at Cromer and District Foodbank will continue to play our part in facilitating the distribution of your donations of emergency food supplies through our 7 centres located in Aylsham (2), Cromer, Holt, North Walsham, Stalham and Sheringham with the help of our fabulous 120-strong volunteer group. And we will continue to work in partnership with the Agencies who refer to us those families who

Norfolk primary school’s wellie-wall wins RHS Best School Garden and Gold Medal at the Royal Norfolk Show

Aldborough Primary School in North Norfolk won Best School Garden 2019 and an RHS Gold Medal for its garden at the Royal Norfolk Show. Up against stiff competition from much larger schools, both public and state, Aldborough’s wellieinspired creation wowed the judges, who were all from the Royal Horticultural Society.

garden’s key feature, a wellie-wall comprising recycled wellington boots which the children had planted up with a huge array of colourful flowers. Other features included a willow den, vegetable planter, friendship bench, wooden wind chimes and willow dragonflies – all made by the pupils, who had great fun showing the judges around their school garden.

The RHS says that school gardens are a huge part of their push to encourage young people to enjoy the benefits of gardening. There were eight school gardens at the Royal Norfolk Show, each measuring three metres by three metres. The garden designers were encouraged to consider wellbeing, tourism and volunteering – with a ‘rustic twist.’

“Then they all collaborated together, taking on a variety of roles, to turn their vision into reality. I’m so proud of their achievement, and very grateful to the Royal Norfolk Show for the opportunity to showcase our children’s creativity. The RHS judges shared very positive comments with the children, as they were shown around our school garden rather enthusiastically! I would strongly encourage schools to enter next year – it was hard work

One thing that the impressed the judges The Countess of Wessex, was that the garden was who also came to look at clearly created by a team the garden, praised the effort from the whole welly boot planters and Children from Years 3, 5 and 6 with, in the school.

ÂŁ16,000 boost for schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s year of science and technology

at the school throughout the year, and pupils and staff will work with institutions including the University of East Anglia and Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form in Norwich, the UKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first maths and science specialist sixth form.

A Cromer school has received funding of ÂŁ16,000 to spend a year celebrating science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Cromer Academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Year of STEMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will launch in September 2019, with activities across the school to boost the profile of science and technology subjects and careers, and develop links with employers across the region.

A special area for 500 new STEM books will be created in the school library, with STEM texts included in the whole schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reading programme.

Science experts will give talks and workshops

Walks for the Glaven

The school will create a team of student STEM ambassadors, with half-termly prizes and an annual STEM Cup for the student with the greatest potential.

The scheme will also see a girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; STEM club and a robotics club added to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programme of extracurricular activities.

Funding for the project has been provided by the Dudgeon Community Fund STEM Programme,

The Glaven Charity invites you to enjoy a choice of fundraising walks through the beautiful Glaven Valley on Saturday 21 September.

Setting off from the Art CafĂŠ at Glandford - there is a walk for everyone. A 10k walk follows historic footpaths and bridal paths through the Bayfield Estate, over the Wiveton Downs to the coastal path and back. A gentler but equally glorious 5k circular walk through the Bayfield Estate crosses open farmland, woodland and wetland. Landowner Robin Combe will be on hand to talk about the local bird, insect and plant life. Families with toddlers can enjoy a gentle stroll (1K ) down to Glandford Ford, stop off at The Glandford Shell Museum and climb the hill up to

which aims to motivate and enthuse pupils age 12 to 16 and boost the numbers going on to study or work in STEM areas.

Cromer Academy headteacher Antony Little said "We are very keen to support our students in thinking about science, technology, engineering and maths careers, which are all growth employment areas in Norfolk.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank the Dudgeon Community Fund for helping us create this amazing project, which will give a massive boost to STEM in our school and ensure that Cromer students are well prepared for life."

Glandford Church, for some child friendly, creative church brass rubbing.

The Glaven Centre in Blakeney provides a local luncheon club, care and companionship for the elderly, and will use the monies raised through the walks to maintain its premises. Glaven founder, the late Dr Tony Allibone, enjoyed walking these paths with their beautiful view

You can raise sponsorship for your walk or commit to ÂŁ10 per walker on the day, or ÂŁ15 for a Family 1K walk - please email to register.

The Glaven Centre is very grateful for your support. All routes are dog friendly. There is ample car parking and The Art Cafe has kindly offered their amenities to walkers.

Hedgehog Haven It's hoglet season!

Cromer Flower Club

This month we were very lucky to welcome Stephanie Laing who stood in for an unavoidable cancellation. She made a wonderful display and an added bonus is that she is also a judge. The subject was ‘On the Move’ and the first design represented a wheel. The base was a hoop covered with blue and green wool, she used fatsia and manipulated aspidistra leaves teamed with green anthuriums into the new biodegradable oasis. The next arrangement was around an upright piece of wood and was a garden design, moving from one garden to the next. The greenery was privet, hebe, hosta and fatsia leaves with fern and phormium. Purple stocks, hosta flowers, beautiful pink peonies, sweet peas and deep pink roses.

It's very busy here with nine different hoglets from different locations in just one week!

They are all around about 100 gms so very small and should still be with their mothers. They will be in my care for several weeks until they get to release weight. At this weight and with small teeth coming through they are able to lap some mashed cat food, but mornings and evenings I am syringe feeding them a little goat’s milk.

Stephanie then did an oasis free design using a bucket filled with chicken wire and placed in a wooden box to represent a fort. The foliage framework was used to hold the flowers in place. It was filled with privet, eucalyptus, hosta, green atheuriums, gypsophila, germinis, white roses and white carnations. Next she produced a spathe (retrieved from a skip in Spain late at night!) to represent a boat which was adorned with fatsia leaves, pin head proteas, bright orange germinis and espania roses which are red and golden yellow.

Please if you find some hoglets out during the day, leave them about an hour in case mum comes back, then intervene.

The hog who came in two weeks ago for observation has given birth to four hoglets. Mum and babies are doing well.

Huggy came in with a bad back leg injury and is on antibiotics. It will take several weeks but the swelling is slowly going down.

It all goes wrong for Mundesley Players

Then another oasis free arrangement, around two pot plants asparagus fern and splendi for support and hidden test tubes for the flowers. There was also a metal stand with a metal circle with test tubes attached. The tubes were filled with white gerberas, white roses and white carnations. Then last but certainly not least around metal circles ecualptus. Red heuchera, privet and spirea were placed. This looked lovely then she added purple canna lilies, pink gerberas with purple centres, pink roses which made it stunning.

In their hilarious comedy show ‘Streuth & Deckchairs’ things get totally out of control for the Mundesley Players. Over the top acting, scenery toppling, lights fusing. At the Coronation Hall Mundesley on the 1 to 3 August, simply expect the unexpected.

The vote of thanks was given by Val Kirkwood. The best in show in our competition was Liz Crane, quite an accolade from a professional judge with a sweet arrangement in a cup and saucer using a variety of flowers from her own garden. Our next meeting is a 7.20pm in the Junior School on 15 July when David Wright subject is ‘Musicals’. Visitors are very welcome.

Chairperson Cheryl Collings said that the actors were having great fun making things go so far wrong that it becomes a total farce.

New Life Cleaning Ltd

“I know that amateur theatre has this expectation of wobbly scenery and bad acting, but in this case, the problems are intended and are being pushed to the limit for laughs.”

Serving the Community with New Life


In a play called “Streuth!” everything that can go wrong will go wrong. As part of the whole evening there are also three short individual ‘Deckchair’ plays. Set on a seafront in a fictional seaside town remarkably like Mundesley, a series of odd characters discuss their lives and what naughty things they have been up to. Sometimes with surprising and funny results.

Gutter Clearance

REAP for Young People at Cromer Pier Theatre

The REAP careers drop-in service is coming to Cromer Pier Theatre on Sunday 28 July. The Raising Employment Aspirations Project, known as REAP, is a new project funded by the North Norfolk Youth Advisory Board. It enables Lola Stafford Consulting Ltd to support young people aged 13-19 (up to 25 if there is a learning disability) in North Norfolk to get the best possible start to their careers and grow their confidence. The project is available through the local schools and colleges and is also hosted in community venues providing a drop-in service which includes finding out about employment or further education opportunities plus help with CVs, application letters and interview skills. REAP is designed to help young people feel able to aim for their ideal job, no matter how big, small or different that individual choice is. Jacqui Starling of Lola Stafford Consulting Ltd says â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are delighted that Cromer Pier Theatre has offered to host the service. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an iconic venue central to the Cromer community and offers us the chance to deliver a dropin session which promises to inform, inspire and motivate young people needing some extra help to make career choices. We share the vision of the North Norfolk Youth Advisory Board to empower young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitions and help them reach their full potentialâ&#x20AC;?. The event is free and runs from 10am to 3pm on Sunday 28 July. There will be lots of additional information from organisations that support young people PLUS we have some fun activities, opportunities for speed interviews to fine tune your responses and a card game to reveal your hidden strengths! So just come along on the day or for more information contact Jacqui Starling by email or call 07806 392254.

Will You Dance?

Ladies and Gentlemen, lend me your ears, These steps that I teach will stay with you for years. To Waltz or to Quickstep, that is the question, Young, fit and spry, or drawing your pension. Age shall not wither you, nor custom stale, These dance steps will keep you hearty and hale. Hell hath no fury like a woman whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spurned Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll burn off her rage with dances she learned! Alas, poor Eric, I knew him so well His two left feet gave his dance partners hell! So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re past our dancing days.â&#x20AC;? Stay light on your feet with your Pasodobles. All the world is a stage, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they say, So dance all your troubles and worries away, If music be the food of love, then play on, Dance all your days, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til your days are all done! Frances Wraight

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Another important role in the branch is ordering Cats Protection stock from our Empawrium Catalogue for major sales. This could lead to more opportunities to be involved in other areas for ordering goods, equipment, etc, but more of that next time.

We are happy to report that the four kittens mentioned last time are now well on the way to recovery. However, a further kitten has arrived from the same site and this too gave us great cause for concern. He went straight to the vets on arrival in care and also needed an antibiotic injection, medication for his eyes, plus more antibiotics, to be given by mouth. Before leaving the surgery, he had fluids injected under the skin as he was very dehydrated. He too is making good progress. We know there are another two kittens on the site and, thankfully, they are both healthy but are proving difficult to catch. A cat trap has now been put into position to hopefully catch them. These kittens were very fortunate as without medical intervention I am afraid they would not have survived.

If you are interested in receiving help to neuter your cat/kitten, please ring Pablo, a kitten recently 07880 256948 (to see if you are rescued from the industrial eligible for a voucher). This number is site now reserved for vouchers only and will not be able to help with any other enquiries. The number also applies for those wishing to take advantage of our special neutering campaign.

Last time we mentioned the role of the fosterer within the branch. However, there are many more opportunities for people to become involved in the work that we do and we always welcome new volunteers. With other commitments in their lives, most people cannot offer the same level of help that is required when caring for the cats first hand. If you have a few hours to spare there are many other roles to fill and we will try to explain over the next few issues the different ways this can be achieved.

If you are looking for a cat or kitten (or have any other queries) please give Stephanie a call on 01692 535858. Alternatively, you can visit for a description and photographs of the cats before giving us a call on the above number to find out where any particular cat is being fostered.

Fundraising is one area where there are many opportunities to help the cats, by raising the money to ensure they receive the very best help we can give them while in our care. We do have a lady who organises store collections and she is always happy to hear from people willing to give an hour or two when these take place. Street collections are another area where a few hours of your time would be invaluable. Helping at one of our major sales is another way to become involved and also gives you the opportunity to meet like minded people. We are always happy for volunteers to arrange and organise their own fundraising events (Craft Fairs, Car Boots, etc) and do have some goods available for these.

Starting Saturday 20 July Greshamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pre-Prep field in the town centre will become a hive of activity and fun between 10am and 4pm with free workshops in football, art, creative writing, song writing and street dance. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an art car boot at Lees Yard giving the opportunity to buy direct from artists.

In true Norfolk style, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Doing Differentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and are opening for free for our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Norfolk Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Friday 26 July. We will be offering river trips for a small charge too. Ring to book your seats.

There is plenty to see and do for all the family, including enjoying a picnic in the summer sunshine by the river. Check out our special exhibition, the Lost Railway of the Broads, and take a river trip on our steam boat, Falcon, or on our electric boat, Marsh Harrier. Dogs are always welcome, in the Museum and on the boats.

On Sunday 21 July a Street Feast opens at 12 noon in the High St followed by a family town picnic open to all on the Pre-Prep field with lots of free live entertainment.

Holt Festival Artistic Director Anwen Hurt said 'We really wanted to make sure that the Festival has events that everyone can attend, to include the whole town in the Festival â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the best way to do that is to make them free.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

The main Holt Festival runs from 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 27 July. For full details, workshop times along with details of all Festival events visit

Cromer Times Issue 569 13th July 2019

Another book for us all to enjoy Anyone who has read and enjoyed the three previous Yesterdays books has another treat in store.

The first book, Yesterday’s Loves and Laughter introduced John Gibbs and his sister Freda in the village next door to our own, and his three workmates, George, Arthur and Charlie who work at Mr Whitlow’s farm.

In Yesterday’s Hearts and Homes John married his sweetheart Ellen and they set up home because his sister Freda has married and moved out.

Yesterday’s Labours Lost tells the story of another character, Robert Dennis, from the village. This poignant tale depicts the demise of the traditional smallholder from our Norfolk countryside.

The Yesterday’s series takes us back realistically to the ways in which people lived and worked in the nineteen fifties. Those quiet years when the country was still being rebuilt after the harrowing days of the war were times of peacefulness, hopefulness and increasing plenty before the disruption and excessive cultural abandon of the nineteen sixties. Tradition and well-tested ways still held sway on the farm and in the home. Young people who read these books are amazed that people in the very houses we occupy experienced such conditions and situations. Yet when we talk to survivors of those days, the phrase, “we’ve seen the best days” is often heard. Survivors of those years who read these books revel in the stories of people in a world that they know.

story-telling. In those quiet days in a Norfolk village, when someone new came to the village, tongues began to wag, conjecture was rife and people began to dream. Fancies were bred in those dreams and in the placid hours of day and night they germinated and grew and if acted upon could become follies. Ripples, enjoyed by some but hurtful to others, disturbed the surface of village life for a time. Harmless maybe but foolish all the same and of course they did not die until trodden upon. Enjoy this bit of scandal.

You won’t want to miss this book and all the others so do go to Forrests in Stalham, The Showcase Gallery in North Walsham or Jarrolds in Cromer and buy one or more all for a more than reasonable price. It’ll be worth every penny.

Local MP pledges to keep a watch on our mental health services

Norfolk Police collaborates with smart location tech company

Norfolk Police is rolling out the latest smart technology to make it easier for people to share their exact location using a unique three-word address. Its decision to use what3words – available for iPhone and Android users to download for free and use without subscription charges was announced at the Royal Norfolk Show last month. This innovative technology provides people with a simple and precise way to share their location quickly and easily.

Local MP, Sir Norman Lamb, has promised to continue scrutinising mental health spending and service performance in North Norfolk, following the parliamentary launch of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ new website ‘Mental Health Watch.’

The website brings together multiple data sources to give users a one-stop shop to track mental health services against national government targets.

Norfolk's Chief Constable Simon Bailey said "Our rural communities told us about this remarkable technology that can pinpoint a precise location. We've been working closely with what3words for a while now to see how we can bring this to Norfolk and integrate the technology into our systems for the benefit of our communities. We know it can be difficult for people living and working in the more isolated parts of Norfolk to give us their exact location, and this technology could be ground breaking in helping us to continue to better serve and support our communities. It's also another example of our commitment to the ongoing partnership between the very best in technology and modern policing. Rural policing is part of our core business and communities need a police service that is responsive, innovative and vested in providing a quality service to all.”

It means users can see how their local area compares to others across 25 indicators, including spend per head on mental health services and waiting times for people needing treatment for depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses.

Dozens of parliamentarians attended the launch, including Sir Norman Lamb MP who opened the event, to hear from Professor Wendy Burn, president of the College and Jackie Doyle Price MP, Minister for Mental Health.

What3words has divided the world into a grid of 3m squares and converted complex GPS coordinates into unique three-word addresses for each square. For example ///exists.roofs.plod refers to a precise point next to a road on the Norfolk Broads.

They were shown how to use the site, how to understand the data and how they can use the information to hold government and local decision makers to account.

Sir Norman Lamb MP for North Norfolk said “For too long it has been difficult to get a true picture of how our area is doing compared to others when it comes to mental health services. The College has clearly worked hard in developing a resource that finally gives me the information I need to see where services need improving and where they are doing well. I have pledged to use Mental Health Watch to keep a close eye on the performance of mental health services in North Norfolk. This is particularly important given the serious concerns about services locally.”

The system, which is available in more than 35 languages, has been integrated into Norfolk Constabulary's Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, and will go live in the next month.

The what3words' app provides users with a unique three-word address, which when added to the CAD mapping system can pinpoint a caller or incident to a three-metre square of Norfolk. Officers can then be dispatched to the precise location.

Work is also underway to upload the what3words app on to every police device.

Council Leader to hold Monthly Surgeries Views sought from members of the public

The stage is set, the lights go down, red velvet drapes are drawn. We sit and wait expectantly to see who will come on. ‘Mine Host’ appears, dressed to the ‘nines’, he’s full of bonhomie, And introduces the first act that we’re about to see. Music plays, girls appear, to start their dance routine; They twirl and whirl and do high kicks, their sequins flash and gleam. Their costumes swirl around them, their movements quick and bold, As they dance energetically - a real joy to behold! They run off, and next there comes a juggler with some balls, And a unicycle - he thrills us in the stalls! Then follows a comedian who trips and does daft walks, He plays the drums extremely well and tells some silly jokes. A tenor sings some love songs from famous musicals. His voice is rich and powerful, ideal for music halls. A young soprano joins him for a love duet or two, They’re both well matched and well received by those sat in the pews! We’ve clapped and cheered so heartily, our hands and throats are sore! It’s been prime entertainment - the audience calls, “Encore!” Frances Wraight

Members of the public are being encouraged to share their views and raise questions about the service provided by North Norfolk District Council with its Leader, Cllr. Sarah Bütikofer.

Cllr. Bütikofer will continue to host monthly surgeries at the Council’s Cromer offices - half hour appointments can be arranged by contacting or by calling Lynda McElligott on 01263 516242.

Surgery dates are as follows: • 30 July • 27 August • 24 September • 29 October • 26 November • 17 December Appointments will be available between 12.30pm – 5pm.

Leader of the Council, Cllr. Sarah Bütikofer, said “The surgeries that I have held so far have given me a great opportunity to listen to the views and concerns of local residents and to understand what matters to them and the communities they live in. It’s important that the Council understands what’s important to local people so that we can put them at the heart of everything we do, so I would encourage people to come along to one of the forthcoming surgeries to meet with me.”

Holt Street Feast

Over the Moon

Holt is running its 1st Street Feast on Sunday 21 July.

I look out of the window to a morning frost See a man standing there as if he was lost I go to the door, say “are you ok”? He says “no, I’ve lost my way I’ve come from the moon, do you know that place? I went up by rocket and landed in space. I shouldn’t be here, I’ve lost my mate We are supposed to meet up, I’m going to be late. I’ve got to get back but I don’t know how”. I said go to the farm and hire a cow He said “will that get me back quite soon?” I said “don’t you know a cow jumped over the moon”. Russell Craske




The event is a collaboration between Holt Festival (successful weeklong arts festival now in its 11th year) and Love Holt (Holt's rebranded Chamber of Commerce).The aim is to create an interesting, unique and fun event through the closed streets of Holt. We hope to attract a younger customer with a love for great food, drink and music.

Cromer Marrams Bowls Club

We have played three games with great friendly spirit against annual visiting ‘friends’. Longthorpe BC from near Peterborough came to challenge and retain the annual ‘Crab Trophy’ but Cromer ‘snatched’ it back with a 121-106 shot victory, 4-2 rink wins. Top rink was John H, Russell W, Jackie P and Bob A with a 26-13 score. Houghton-on-the-Hill BC from Leicester brought their usual friendly ‘bunch’ to play but were defeated 109-63, 4 rinks to 1. Best Cromer rink was Joan B, David M and James P with a very impressive 38-12 win. We went to Holt BC to play a mixed friendly and were again victorious by a 97-85 margin, 3 rinks to 2. Top rink was Ann M, Andrew H and Neil P (24-11).

News from the Club House ...

Our ladies entertained Thorpe Rec Ladies at bowls, and a buffet of course, with honours fairly even. One rink win each and a drawn rink, with Thorpe just earning victory by 59 shots to 53.

Cromer’s winning rink was Jackie, Brenda and Jane, 24-16. They then travelled to Holt to be entertained, winning on both rinks with a 38-26 shot score line.

Cromer ‘Crabs’ continued to surprise themselves with another victory in the Federation league, this time a 7-2, 51-35 win at New Road North Walsham. Two rinks were very tight with one win each, but Chrissie, Philip and Neil P had the rub of the green at times and scored a 21-5 win. The visit to Cawston ‘B’ was less successful with a 0-9 defeat!

The men travelled to the rearranged game at Fakenham in the Hansells league but were on the wrong end of a 43-71 score line, losing on all 3 rinks for a 0-5 defeat. The return at home was a much closer affair. Although Cromer lost 1-4 (54-61) James P, Andrew H, Les K and Neil C won 19-16.

Last season’s holders in the 3 wood KO cup, Cromer, found this season’s 2 leg matches with Stalham a much tougher affair. The home leg was a 37-62 ‘thrashing’ and was followed a week later by a 36-54 loss although Tony G, John B and Bob A did win 18-14.

The NANSA league team have fared much better to lead the league. Away at Aylsham they gained an 6-2 (56-35) victory with two rinks tieing for ‘best’. Chrissie L, Bob B and Keith P (24-13) and Jean N Bob K and Philip E (20-9). The visit to Weybourne was more successful with a 7-1 (72-44) win. David M, Philip E and Bernie C topping the rinks.
