Issue no 580 21st December 2019

Cromer Christmas Lights 2019 On Saturday 30th of November, with spectacular glowing incandescence, the Cromer Christmas Lights were switched on. This year the lights marked the climax of the five days Christmas Festival in our town.

Around the Parish Church, visitors were entertained by dexterous jugglers and serenely balanced stilt walkers. North of the church there was a rather special trio of animals. A pair of good-natured donkeys and a fabulous reindeer!

During the day Street Market stalls popped up all across the town. Continued on page 4...

As darkness fell, there was angelic music to be heard. Supported by the Salvation Army band, there was carolling singing from Cromer Gospel Choir and Cromer Carol Singers lead by Revd Will Warren of Cromer Church. Performing a heart-warming rendition of Away in a Manger was the choir from Cromer Suffield Park Infants & Nursery.

Extra Lights Express

The North Norfolk Railway has reacted to the unprecedented demand for seats on the new Norfolk Lights Express by adding a further 10 trains. Demand for seats has outstripped all expectations with the initial 55 trains approaching full. The decision to add a further 10 trains was not taken lightly but the feedback from passengers travelling has been so enthusiastic that it was considered the additional trains would provide further opportunities for those not able to get a seat on the published programme. The Norfolk Lights Express which operates from

Sheringham through to Holt and return offers the opportunity to experience an amazing light show which illuminates the landscape as the train meanders along the route. All this is set to music creating an enchanting evening experience. The train is covered with a Kilometre of rope lights and has around 2.5 miles of cabling to support them. Each train has seating for over 200 visitors.

The services will now continue to operate through to the 5th January 2020 offering a further 2000 seats for sale.

On Tuesday 3 December, after a delicious Christmas lunch, Simon Partridge talked enthusiastically and entertainingly about Christmas. Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for Christmas shone through as he recounted its origins and traditions. The Romans gave us Christmas on 25 December when the pagan festival known as Saturnalia evolved into the celebration of the birth of Jesus, following the Roman emperor Constantineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversion to Christianity in the fourth century.

The legend of Father Christmas can also be traced back to the fourth century when a Christian bishop called Nicholas performed acts of kindness, such as when he gave three bags of gold to three poor girls so they could get married.

June stated: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was unbelievable. While the external view is incredible, the lighting and scenes along the track will, I am sure, make this a real trip to remember for our visitors of all ages. The trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s external lights provide amazing technicolour effects for passengers as the train passes through the cuttings along the route.â&#x20AC;?

Christmas did not become the festival we know until Victorian times, largely as a result of two publications: Clement Clarke Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem, published in 1823, called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A visit from St Nicholasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, in which St Nicholas was described for the first time, followed twenty years later by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Christmas Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Charles Dickens, who encouraged charity in a harsh world.

Although most of our traditions can be traced back to the Victorian era, Simon stated that some do relate to the birth of Christ, for example, the nativity scene, attributed to St Francis of Assisi, who re-enacted the scene in a cave in Italy on Christmas Eve, 1223. On behalf of the 35 members and 35 guests present, our Chairman, Dave Williams, thanked Simon for his incredibly entertaining and interesting talk.

We shall next meet at the Links Hotel in West Runton on Tuesday 14 January when Peter Lawrence will give a talk called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beneath the Streets of Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Financial Settlement on Divorce - what rights do I have?

Whilst obtaining a divorce is often straightforward, agreeing what is going to happen to the family finances is usually more complicated. Although the divorce and finances are technically two separate sets of proceedings, they are usually looked at alongside one another.

By the nature of being married, spouses have financial claims against one another until they are formally dismissed by the Court. It is important for parties to understand their rights and entitlements in advance as it can help in managing expectations and often speed up the process. It is hoped that at this stage, former spouses can really begin to think about the future, putting any conflict behind them. When looking at the finances, the first step is to ascertain what is in the family pot. This will include matrimonial assets. These are assets that were built up during the period of the marriage. These could include, but are not limited to, the family home, other properties, pensions, savings, investments, business assets and vehicles. Sometimes there are also non-matrimonial assets. These are financial assets which were acquired before or after the relationship, inheritances and gifts. There is scope for non-matrimonial assets to be treated differently, and potentially excluded, but it will depend on the individual circumstances of the case and often the party’s needs.

There is no hard and fast rule for calculating the financial settlement. Each case is judged on its own merits. The law focuses on achieving a fair outcome which can be very different from one family to the next, and whilst the starting point is 50/50, this doesn’t necessarily mean half and half. There will often be a range of different ways in which the

assets can be divided and the advantages and disadvantages of those will need to be explored. It is also important for you to consider what your preferred option would be and the practicalities of that. The Court’s first consideration is any minor children. The Court will want details about where and whom any children will be living so that this can be taken into account when looking at the type of housing required to meet their needs. The length of the marriage is also a key consideration. If the parties lived together prior to the marriage then this can be taken into account provided that it “flows seamlessly into marriage”. Age is also a factor along with income and earning capacity. For example, if one party is better equipped to “regenerate” their finances or meet their needs from their income then there may be an argument to say that they should receive less. The Court will also consider contributions made by the parties to the marriage. There is often a misconception that this simply relates to financial contributions. It is wider than that. It takes into account contributions to the family as a whole. For example, caring for children is clearly a vital and equal contribution. One asset that often causes confusion is pensions and how they should be dealt with on a divorce. A survey recently carried out by Shoosmiths found that a third of married couples do not know about pension sharing on divorce. This is a worrying statistic, particular for women who separate after taking a career break to start a family, as this can have a huge impact when it comes to long term financial security. The research shows that on the whole, pensions are often overlooked with the focus being on physical assets.



When it comes to pensions on divorce there are different options but the most common are pension sharing and pension offsetting. Pension sharing is where one party’s pension is split and a percentage transferred to the other spouse to “top up” their pot, usually either to equalise pension values or income upon retirement. Pension offsetting is the idea that cash is received now instead of a pension share. Pensions can be complex assets and it is important that you seek specialist advice. However, the take away point is that former spouses may be entitled to a proportion of their spouse’s pension if they split up.

It is hoped that former spouses are able to come to an agreement about how the family finances are split, whether that is achieved by them discussing it directly, going to mediation or having negotiations through solicitors. However, if former spouses cannot agree then they can ask the Court to make a decision, although this should be viewed as the last resort. The family finances can be tricky and it is important to take specialist advice. At Clapham & Collinge we have a dedicated team of experts who are able to provide you with all of the necessary information, support and legal advice on divorce and the family finances.

News from Sheringham Richard Leeds steps back from role as Lifeboat Operations Manager at RNLI Cromer Stroke Support Group

After over 25 years association with Cromer RNLI, Richard has decided to step back from his role as Lifeboat Operations Manager.

We are all saddened at Richard stepping down as Lifeboat Operations Manager but due to his other outside commitments in the Community he felt it was for the benefit of Cromer RNLI.

In this role Richard had been responsible for the RNLI All Weather Lifeboat Station and the Inshore Station to ensure they were able to launch any time of day and night when requested. He was also responsible for the crew, day to day operations working with the coxswains, the Deputy Launch authorities and Lifeboat Mechanic, a Major responsibility which was all voluntary!

To mark his service at Cromer Richard was presented with a framed certificate which listed his many roles.

Derek Hinds and Richard Leeds

Derek Hinds, Chairman, Cromer RNLI Management Group said, ‘Richard will be missed by all in his role at the station and we wish him well in his other commitments, but we know Richard will always be part of Cromer RNLI now and in the future.

We are all saddened at Richard stepping down as Lifeboat Operations Manager. At Cromer we could have not had a more dedicated man who has given service not only to Cromer RNLI but to the RNLI in general’ www.rosevillapublications.co.uk

four gentlemen who belonged to Sheringham Masonic Lodge. At the same meeting Suzanne Lakin (artist) demonstrated her collage work & brought items for us to make into bookmarks or cards. On 4 December we enjoyed a Christmas tea and carols accompanied by Margaret Colston on her keyboard. We are looking forward to lunch at the Cliftonville Hotel for our final meeting in 2019. We restart on 11 March 2020 at Anchor Close Community Room 2pm for 2.15pm start. All welcome either as a stroke survivor or carer. Our first meeting back has an intriguing title ‘Tax Care & Toy Boys’. Our stroke survivors pay £10 per term (carers & helpers free) which helps towards the hire of the premises and refreshments. We pay up to £30 a meeting for taxi fares if unable to have use of a private car. We wish a Peaceful & Happy New Year from the Stroke Support Group. Chrissy Foster-Worton

Country’s biggest New Year’s Day Firework display celebrates 21 years

All eyes will be on the skies above Cromer Pier on 1 January 2020 as the traditional New Year’s Day Firework display celebrates its 21st anniversary. The event, which started as a one-off display for the new millennium in 2000, was funded by Cromer Town Council and was located on The Meadow it was a success in terms of local support, and it raised a few hundred pounds for charity.

Former Firework Committee Chairman Jim Bond said “This seemed to be an event that we could do every year, and the following year it attracted a larger crowd. After a few years, the display was moved onto the pier, thanks to North Norfolk District Council's support. It has gone on to attract larger and larger crowds, and consequently an increase in donations which helps pay for the following year's display and grants to local charities." Since 2000 the event has given out grants totalling over £60,000 to local charities and good causes.

Organisers hope as many people as possible will again come to Cromer for the day to see more than 3,000 firework shots light up the skies over the North Sea. Firework Committee Chairman Pat West said “As always, the advice is please arrive early and support the local businesses in town who do support the Fireworks committee. There are several exciting new sequences within the main display which will be new to Cromer this year and we are very excited to show these to everyone. As last year, there will be a torchlight parade from Cromer church before the display. We have a new route and for those who have purchased official merchandise there is a designated area with a grandstand view of the firework display.

into Cromer on New Year’s Day with many spending the day in the town for a breath of fresh air and something to eat and drink before the display is fired from Cromer Pier at 5pm.

Will Evans, Project Manager at Titanium Fireworks, said: “Titanium Fireworks are delighted to be firing again off Cromer pier on New Year’s Day 2020. This show is now a firm highlight in our calendar and the crowds it draws, and money it raises for the community, make it something special for us to play our part in. A local youngster will be leading the countdown as a thank you for the winning drawing she sent to the display organisers after the 2019 event and we will then start the main show and fill the skies above Cromer with an array of effects to wow the crowds and start the year with a bang. As always we would like to encourage those who can, to donate to the collectors around the town so that this event can continue to run and raise as much money as it can for the worthy causes in the area.” The event is free, however there will be bucket collectors out in force on the day to fundraise for the 2021 display. The bucket collection at the 2019 display raised over a fantastic £10,000. Half of this was given out in grants to local good causes and the balance has been used towards funding the 2019 display.

Organisers are still looking for volunteers to bolster their official bucket collectors team. Please contact Cromer town council for more information or register at Cromer museum on New Year’s Day from 2pm.

Visitors are urged to arrive in Cromer as early as possible on New Year’s Day. All three town car parks will be open. Runton Road car park will be charging a fixed charge of £5 per car for all day parking from 2pm on the day. Normal car park fees will apply on all other car parks. Additional car parking will be publicised in advance of the event.

“Just a few coins can make a lot of difference to local charities and good causes – and without everyone’s help we couldn’t continue the annual display” said Pat West.

Merry Christmas From Toll Barn Vets!

suspected to have eaten products containing xylitol.

Christmas is fun for all the family and that definitely includes all our pets! However, Christmas is often a busy time for our 24/7 on-site emergency service as there are plenty of hidden dangers lurking during the festivities which we should all be aware of to help keep our pets safe.

Christmas Cake, Christmas Pudding, Mince Pies and Fruit Bowls all contain raisins, sultanas or grapes. These should never be fed to pets as they can cause kidney damage and in severe cases kidney failure. They can also contain alcohol which can cause signs of intoxication as well as dangerous drops in blood sugar levels, blood pressure and body temperature. Not all dogs will be affected but there is no way of knowing which animals will suffer from toxicity so they are best completely avoided. Macadamia nuts can also be toxic causing neurological signs such as weakness, depression, tremors and vomiting within 12 hours of being eaten. Onions and garlic can also be harmful (even when cooked) with signs such as vomiting and diarrhoea and potentially destruction of red blood cells (haemolytic anaemia). Many Christmas dinners include sage and onion stuffing or onion based gravy so it is best to avoid giving these â&#x20AC;&#x153;left oversâ&#x20AC;? to pets.

Chocolate decorations are frequently used on trees and in stockings. Chocolate contains a stimulant called theobromine (similar to caffeine) which is toxic to dogs. The amount of theobromine varies with the type of chocolate (dark chocolate contains the highest levels). Depending on the amount and type of chocolate eaten signs range from vomiting and diarrhoea to wobbliness, seizures and changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias). If your pet eats chocolate it is important to be able to tell your vet how much and what type of chocolate has been eaten as this will help us calculate whether a toxic dose has been reached. Some foods such as sugar free gum and diabetic biscuits contain xylitol. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar which is often used as a sweetener in low carbohydrate and diabetic products. When pets eat xylitol their blood sugar level can drop rapidly causing lethargy and weakness and in severe cases, seizures. Xylitol can also cause liver failure in some dogs. The signs of this can take several days to develop. We would advise urgent veterinary attention for any pet who is

Pets, especially dogs, have an exceptional sense of smell. This means they will often hunt out bones, foil or string with meat juices from the rubbish bin or counter tops. These bones are often brittle and splinter easily which can cause blockages or tears within the oesophagus and intestine whilst foil or string can cause obstructions within the stomach and intestine.

Many of these (and other) foods also contain high levels of fat. This can cause vomiting and diarrhoea and more seriously increases the risk of pancreatitis.

away from inquisitive animals.

Festive bouquets often include Lilies but ingestion of the plant or plant pollen can cause kidney failure in cats. If your cat comes into contact with Lilies and the pollen sticks to their fur immediately place a buster collar or t-shirt on the cat to prevent them licking and ingesting more pollen and contact your vet for advice. Holly, Mistletoe and Poinsettias are also toxic causing vomiting, diarrhoea and depression. Mistletoe has been known to cause collapse, changes in heart rate and erratic behaviour following ingestion. Poinsettia sap has irritant properties which can cause blistering of the mouth and stomach when eaten. We would recommend all plants are kept well out of reach of inquisitive pets!

There are also several household dangers which are more common at Christmas. Tinsel and tree ornaments are particularly attractive play things to cats and puppies. If eaten these will often cause blockages and twists within the intestines of your pet requiring immediate surgery Most of these potential dangers are treatable to remove the material. if caught early enough so if you have any Christmas ornaments will concerns about your pet during this festive also often break if played period our 24/7 on site emergency service is with by pets. This can cause available for our clients throughout Christmas choking, cuts within the and New Year on our normal surgery phone mouth and damage to number (01692 407126). the intestines if eaten. Christmas trees themselves We wish you all a safe and Merry are also potentially toxic Christmas! with pine needles causing irritation of the mouth (which may show as excessive drooling), vomiting, diarrhoea and weakness. Naughty puppies and kittens have also been known to injure themselves climbing Christmas trees or knocking them over so it is always advisable to have a barrier to prevent 24/7 ON SITE EMERGENCY SERVICE access to the tree, as well as supervision!

A FOURTH TITLE FOR VETERAN BAKER

Appearing in his sixth final in the last seven years Cromer Squash Club’s long serving member John Baker regained the title which he had previously won in 2014, 2015 and 2017 when he was crowned club veterans’ champion after beating Séan Moore, who was appearing in his first ever club final at any level, 9-3 9-2 10-9 in the final on Friday evening. By winning the title for the fourth time Baker drew level with former club chairmen, Nick Amis and Giles Margarson, both of whom won the title four times back in the 1980s and 90s.

the last half a dozen rallies with Baker finally converting his second match ball to take the game 10-9 and the match 3-0.

Both players had defeated previously beaten

As always the final attracted a good crowd to the Norwich Road balcony and Technical Director Barry Starling, who himself was runner up in the tournament way back in 1996, but who made an early first round exit this year, said: “Although at first glance the scores might suggest this was a one sided match this was certainly not the case and both players played some excellent squash John always just having the edge and producing winning shots at vital times”

Played under the conventional scoring system the match was not as one sided as the scoreline might suggest and featured some excellent squash from both players. Baker, however, still hits the ball as cleanly and crisply as any player in the club and he always seemed to be in control of the rallies in the opening two games as his older opponent was only able to pick up a handful of points.

Trophies were presented to the two players by CLTSA Chairman, Kelvin Van Hasselt, who said that he thoroughly enjoyed the match and the sportsmanship showed by both players. Since winning his first handicap tournament in 1984 Baker has, over the past 35 years, now won no fewer than 17 titles at the club – 4 club championships, 5 Over 35 titles, 4 veterans’ titles and four handicap tournaments – and no other player is remotely near that record.

The third game started in a similar vein as Baker opened up a 5-0 lead before Moore seemed to discover a new lease of life as he won ten of the next eleven rallies to lead 8-5 and give himself a real chance of taking the match into a fourth game. Baker, however, drew level before both players traded points in
