Dalek Invasion comes to Kidzone

Covering North Walsham, Aylsham and surrounding villages in association with the Cromer Times and Sheringham Independent

Kidzone in North Walsham was lucky enough to be visited by a real life Dalek during the recent half term holiday. The visit by the Dalek was part of a week of Dr Who activities at Kidzone, a breakfast and after school club based at North Walsham Infant and Junior School. Children also designed a planet Dr Who could visit and had a competition to create a new Dr Who character.

Kidzone is part of The Benjamin Foundation charity that is celebrating its 19th birthday and Dr Who cakes were baked and eaten by the children to mark the occasion.

Kidzone offers breakfast, after school and holiday childcare for children between the ages of 3 to 13 and is open for 50 weeks a year. To make a booking, arrange a visit or for any enquiries please call 01692 407012 or email kidtown@benjaminfoudation.co.uk

Icarus Hines’ Norfolk lamb with Dauphinoise potatoes, purple sprouting and beetroot

December is a very busy time for us at the Grove and we have lots of great events during the leadup to Christmas. The highlight is our Carol evening - with miced pies and lashings of mulled wine - under the stars around our Christmas tree on 23rd December at 6pm. We’re being joined by the Cantamus Community Choir from Thorpe Market and we hope it will be a fantastic evening for the whole town to get together as the festive season really gets underway. The Carol evening will be free entry, though we will be collecting for the RNLI to help them with the great work that they do in Cromer, Sheringham and around the country.

best lamb from Icarus Hines; is really scrummy and perfect for this time of year.

Very best wishes from us all at The Grove.

Charlie

THE LAMB Four French-trimmed three-bone racks of Norfolk lamb – any butcher will trim and clean the bones ready for the oven. For the lamb crust – 1 cup of hazlenut and chocolate Crush granola (made locally in Norfolk.) A handful of mint, handful of basil leaves, Norfolk rapeseed honey for a beautifully pure flavour - and helps the crust stay on the meat… Maldon Sea Salt, black pepper, cold pressed Crush rapeseed oil.

We still have just a few slots available for Christmas dinner parties too - although they are selling out extremely quickly – a couple of tables left for our sumptuous Christmas Day lunch, and of course we are open for dinner every night and the best Sunday lunch in Norfolk!

This is a great recipe that features on our Autumn menu here at the Grove, and is proving extremely popular. It blends a traditional French cooking technique with some superb local produce, including some gorgous granola from Crush Foods and the

K C evin

♦ Seal the lamb in a hot pan until all sides have a golden glaze. ♦ Leave to stand, baste the top fat with honey, and add herbs, granola and seasoning (blended or chopped very finely) to the honey glaze. ♦ Drizzle with a little cold pressed rapeseed oil and cook in a medium heat oven (gas mark 5) for between 20 and 30 minutes until pink. ♦ Cook the purple sprouting tips in seasoned boiling water for 45 minutes; drain and serve.

DAUPHINOISE POTATOES 5 large potato lovers (Norfolk tatties) 500ml double cream 2 crushed garlic cloves

2 pinches nutmeg Maldon sea salt, black pepper

■ Pre-heat oven to gas mark three. Make sure your oven dish is evenly coated with butter. Peel five large potatoes – we get ours direct from the garden – thinly slice with a sharp knife or mandolin. ■ Mix up 500ml of double cream, a couple of pinches of nutmeg, a good amount of seasoning and two crushed garlic cloves. ■ Toss the potatoes in your cream mix, place everything into your gratin dish – layering the slices of potato – and bake for approximately an hour to 90 minutes, pressing down with a wooden spoon every 15 minutes. ■ The potatoes will come out lovely and golden brown; leave to stand for at least ten minutes. Simple garden beetroot jus. ■ Boil your beetroots for two to threee hours and, while hot, peel them – wear rubber gloves of course! Dice up with a shallot, a medium-sized red onion and a knob of unsalted butter. ■ Cook on a medium heat until soft, then add 50ml of red wine, a dash of white wine vinegar, Maldon sea salt and black pepper and 75ml of chicken stock. ■ Remove from the heat, puree with a stick blender until smooth, return to the heat for 10 minutes and finish with a pinch of caster sugar to give some sweet balance to the acidity.

North Norfolk Social Centre for the Blind

What a busy and wet month November was, but members of North Norfolk Social Centre for the Blind enjoyed their much loved annual poetry day on Thursday 7 November.

Some of the poems were written and read with great expression by committee members. Other poems were set to a theme and as it was almost Remembrance Sunday, Great War poems were read. The club was very sorry not to have their own Diane Berthelot with them to read her poems but members all shared reading some her work. Members all wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she returns to the club soon - she has been greatly missed.

Poems included Norman & Saxon written by Rudyard Kipling, Sea Fever by John Masefield,

Mia by Diane Berthelot, The Tiger by William Blake, and The Soldier by Rupert Brook. In all about 25 poems were read including a couple by Pam Ayers.

It was a lovely afternoon and one that members all look forward to. The raffle cashed in at £46 and the second hand clothing made stall made £15.

Carols at the Grove

The Christmas holidays will get underway in traditional style at the Grove with an open-air Carol evening featuring one of the region’s top singing groups.

The Cantamus Community Choir will be leading the singing on 23rd December at 6pm, fortified by the finest homemade mince pies and lashings of mulled wine.

Proceedings will get underway with an opening prayer from the rector of St. Giles in Norwich – and former Cromer celebrity – Father Darren Thornton, and it is hoped that as many people as possible turn up to sing the Christmas festival in.

The evening is free to attend and all donations on the night will go directly to the RNLI.

Charlie Hodson, Executive Chef at the Grove, who is now a volunteer on RNLI Cromer’s team is keen to support Cromer’s local charities. He said, “This is another example of how The Grove can support our local community”.

He added, “This is the first of several exciting events planned for 2014, which will benefit RNLI Cromer as well as other charities”.

This year’s Must-Have Gift is blood

Call for people to come forward and give this year’s must-have gift NHS Blood and Transplant is calling for people to step forward and donate blood in the run up to Christmas so patients whose lives depend on blood transfusions get what they need over the festive period.

and families will be on Christmas Eve Tuesday 24 December at 6pm.

THE MIDNIGHT EUCHARIST OF THE NATIVITY starts at 11.30pm on Christmas Eve and on CHRISTMAS DAY there will be a Service of Holy Communion at 8am and A Family Parish Communion at 10am.

NEW YEAR’S DAY ORGAN RECITAL at 1pm, with Soup and Sandwiches from 12.30pm. The Church organist, David Ballard, will play light music much like some other New Year Vienna style concerts.

Do call into to Church to purchase the Light Magazine which gives full details of all events.

patients across the country, this year’s Must-Have Christmas gift is blood and we’re asking you to help. Donating doesn’t cost a penny and saves lives, meaning many more children and adults can spend precious time with their families over Christmas.

“This is always an extremely challenging time of year for us as we need to make sure that hospitals are supplied with the blood they need to treat patients over the Christmas holidays. We need donors from all blood groups, but we especially need O Rh negative and B Rh negative to come forward. Whether you’re a regular blood, or have never donated before, you can make a real difference. So please make an appointment now or go along to an local session to save lives.”

If you’re 17 and over and in general good health, visit www.blood.co.uk or call 0300 123 23 23 to find a session in England or North Wales near you to go and give blood.

November through to the New Year is typically a challenging time for blood stocks. Hospitals in England and North Wales will need up to half a million units of blood to see them through the period. However, Christmas shopping, the party season, and the general rush together with the extended public holidays mean taking the time to donate can slip off people’s to-do list, putting pressure on blood stocks.

As a unit of blood only has a shelf life of 35 days it’s crucial that enough donors come forward to donate over the next few weeks so patients get the gift they need to stay alive this Christmas.

Derek Carr, Lead Donor Relations Manager for NHS Blood and Transplant said “People are probably busy getting ready for Christmas, but we’re asking them to find time to donate blood. For thousands of

Southrepps Chorale is delighted that their next concert with Norfolk Brass will be in aid of the Cromer Bells Restoration Project.

The concert at Cromer Parish Church on Saturday 30 November at 7.30pm will see the Chorale, conducted by Musical Director Stephen Richards, accompanied by brass, guitar, percussion and their regular accompanist David Hillery, in music as diverse as ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, ‘Panis Angelicus’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. There will also be seasonal music and refreshments as we move into Advent and towards Christmas.

The Cromer Bells Project is to replace 140-year-old fittings around the six bells in the parish church, and to cast two additional bells, at a cost of £70,000.

Maureen Gardiner, bellringer and

0 1 6 9 2

Steeple-Keeper for the town centre church, said “Being forced to raise £70,000 was a bit of a shock. We have had tremendous support but we are looking for new ways to raise the money and are really grateful to the Southrepps Chorale for giving the proceeds of this concert at the Parish Church to the Restoration Project.”

The community choir, Southrepps Chorale, is just two years old and continues to provide its members with a host of surprises emerging from rehearsals each Tuesday night. The excitement of learning to sing, and to sing with others, continues to delight all concerned. And of course they love to showcase their new-found skills to the wider community through performing.

Cantamus Christmas Concert

Hallelujah! If you love Handel’s Messiah and the rousing Hallelujah chorus, join Cantamus Community Choir at their Choral Celebration of Christmas on Friday 6 December at 7pm in beautiful Southrepps Church, NR11 8NR.

The programme will include traditional and contemporary Christmas Carols including Vaughan Williams’ “The Sussex Carol”, “Dormi Jesu” by Edmund Rubbra and John Rutter’s marvellous “Nativity Carol” and “Sans Day Carol”. Cantamus are delighted that old friends, Clare Durrant, Simon Grey, Clive McCrombie and resident contralto Jo Oxborough will be singing The Messiah part 1 solos. Musical Director David Ballard will lead this non-auditioned, mixed voice choir and resident accompanist Matthew Bond will be tickling the organ keys. Expect a delightful evening of song. Entry by £5 programme at the door, refreshments included.

We look forward to seeing you and wish you a very, merry Christmas

Festive Cheer at Blickling over three weekends! Mob: 07900 252168

It’s that time again when Blickling Hall plays host to some traditional Christmas fayre over the first three weekends of December. Come and be welcomed by characters from the past into this wonderful stately home, beautifully decorated for the festive season, and be tempted by an array of exclusive gift ideas, mostly produced by local craftspeople. Have you ever wondered how past residents of Blickling would have celebrated Christmas? Well this year you will be able to get a real taste. Blickling’s Costumed Interpretation Group, the “Diggers” will be re-enacting Christmas through the ages, giving visitors a feel of what it would have been like in Jacobean times, when Henry Hobart restored the medieval & Tudor manor; Georgian times, when the Second Earl of Buckinghamshire redesigned the house and in Queen Victoria’s reign when Lady Constance made the parterre garden. The atmosphere of the 1930s will also be depicted, when the house was owned by Lord Lothian. Characters from this era will be in the Great Hall, greeting and talking with visitors; the Victorians will be in the Brown Drawing Room; the Georgians in the Dining Room and the Jacobeans in the Long Gallery - all in costume and talking about Christmas foods, decorations and customs from the four specific eras, giving visitors a life-like experience of the house at Christmas and illustrating how

customs varied as time went by. Designed for all ages, the characters will make visitors feel festive and welcome and, in each of the rooms they inhabit, the decorations and floral arrangements will also be appropriately themed.

After wandering through the house you will be drawn in by the welcoming aroma of mulled wine and mince pies in the “Christmas Courtyard”, where there will be a marquee full of Christmas gift ideas as well as festive snacks and drinks.

Christmas trees, wreaths and greenery will also be on sale along with garden gifts, hot chestnuts and other seasonal delights. Father Christmas will be in his grotto each day to take those all important orders and there will be traditional Christmas lunches served in a decorated Lord Lothian’s study or less formally, in Hobarts café on demand. The air will be full of festive cheer, with music and carols to ensure that you leave, touched by the spirit of Christmas.

Over the weekends 30 November - 1 December and 7-8 December, the marquee in the “Christmas Courtyard” will be brimming with Christmas crafts and gifts – a stunning selection of original gift ideas to suit all tastes and pockets.

Cromer’s New Years Day Fireworks Photography Competition set to return Cromer’s New Year’s Day Fireworks committee has announced the return of their annual photography competition to mark the 15th year of the annual display which began in 2000.

After the success of last year’s inaugural competition, which saw over 200 entries, it is hoped that everyone from children to artists and community groups to ambitious individuals will enter and get involved in this fabulous event.

The competition is open to children, adults, amateur and professionals alike, so come along to Cromer on New Years Day, bring your camera, photograph the event and get creative.

This year the competition will be split into two age groups – Adults and Juniors – and each group has a different brief. The Adult age group is open to photographers entering photos of ‘Cromer’s Fireworks 2014’ and the Junior age category is open to photographers entering photos of ‘Cromer on New Year’s Day 2014’. The winner of the Adult age category will have their image turned into the official poster for the 2015 New Years Day Firework event as well as use in other promotional material. Local electrical retailer Bennetts have also teamed up with the North Norfolk News to offer the winner the latest Toshiba tablet package worth £300.

In the Junior category there will be two different age groups – 11 years and under and 12-16 years. The winner of the 12-16 years category will win a Nexus tablet worth £180 and the winner of the 11 years and under category will receive a Scroll 4” tablet worth £55 all courtesy of Bennetts, Cromer.

Manger of Bennetts in Cromer, Simon Morton said “We are thrilled to once again have the opportunity to support such a spectacular local event as the New Year’s Day Firework display. We felt the prizes should reflect this so up for grabs, and chosen from our fantastic range of Tablets in store this Christmas, is the latest Toshiba Tablet currently retailing for £299 as the main prize. In addition we are offering a second tier prize in a Nexus tablet as well as a Scroll 4” tablet for the younger age category. In total a prize pool worth over £500 to encourage those ‘snappers’ to get snapping and produce some great local images!”

He went on to say “Being a local trading store of many years standing Bennetts Cromer is always keen to support projects and events within our local community. All our staff in Cromer are long standing members of the team

and are always pleased to offer their expert knowledge in guiding customers through the process of making that all important electrical purchase. With our long standing ‘Price Match’ policy, ample parking and the best of service there is every reason to come visit us on the Holt road this festive season.”

Chairman of the Fireworks committee Jim Bond said “the annual New Year's Day Fireworks have been capturing people's imagination for fourteen years, every year we see hundreds of fabulous photographs of the event in the press and online. We thought it would be great to expand the photography competition in its second year to inspire more people and to capture this fantastic event. We are looking for photographs that really capture the spirit of the event."

For further information and the competition rules please visit www.cromertown.org or email fireworks@cromertown.org.

The competition entry deadline is Wednesday 15 January 2014. Cromer’s New Year’s Day Fireworks will take place at 5pm off Cromer

was probable that this would re start next year, the day and time may be changed and members discussion was invited.

The craft group who meet at Stephanie's are concentrating their talents on cross stitch Christmas cards, these are to be offered for sale in aid of club funds at the December Coffee morning in St Benet Hall.

Congratulations to Sybil for winning the rose bowl for her success in the monthly competitions held during the year.

Members were asked to bring any cakes or scones for the December coffee morning together with any food bank donations which as a group we had decided to give in place of our usual secret Santa to the December meeting. Kim also asked if we could bring along some strong cardboard boxes.

We had a picture and a cryptic quiz during the evening which exercised our memories and brains which was good fun and enjoyed by all.

Our next meeting is on the 11 December with entertainment by David Pycroft. There will also be a buffet supplied by the committee.

CROMER CHRISTMAS SHOW -

IT'S A CHRISTMAS CRACKER OF A SHOW

The Cromer Christmas Show at the Pavilion Theatre, Cromer Pier is the best way to start the Yule Tide Holidays packed full of comedy, music, song and dance all wrapped up with that extra Christmas sparkle it will bring a smile to your face and set your feet tapping.

Starring Norfolk’s own Olly Day a very funny and talented performer and firmly established as one of East Anglia’s finest ‘all round entertainers’.

This is Olly’s fifth year performing at the end of the pier in the famous Cromer Christmas Show and he has been busy finding lots of new gags and helping to write the sketches. Olly is delighted to be back saying “It’s my home from home, I love coming to Cromer and appearing at the Pavilion Theatre�

Appearing with Olly is Eddie Bushel, the Cromer based singer who has gained a considerable following with his performances in clubs and entertainment venues across the County. Joining them for the first time in

Help for Babies’ Development

What do babies get out of it? Other than sheer delight and excitement, the classes have been designed to help babies develop in the following areas: Language, Physical movement, Socialising and Emotions.

Lisa Stickells has just moved back to Norfolk from London and is launching Baby Sensory in this area (initially Cromer and North Walsham). "I have a 10 month old son (Stanley) who I took to Baby Sensory in Bromley from birth," commented Lisa. "He absolutely loved it (as did I). I completed my training last month and will be running free taster sessions in December and starting the first Baby Sensory programme in January 2014."

Baby Sensory and its benefits: The Baby Sensory programme has been designed specifically for babies from birth to 13 months. It offers a complete approach to learning and development with rich and varied sensory activities enabling babies to develop in every possible way!

Each week is different: With 40 themed lesson plans, babies can

discover a magical underwater world, explore a tropical jungle, journey in to Space and have fun at our Baby Athletics! All these activities are excellent for developing physical, social, emotional, and language skills. They also encourage co-ordination, awareness of the world, a love of music and the concentration so needed for further development.

Free Taster Sessions will take place at Cromer on Tuesday 10th December, 10-11am, Northrepps Village Hall, School Lane, NR27 0LB and North Walsham on Friday 6th December, 10-11am, The Atrium, Spenser Avenue, NR28 9HZ.

Booking is essential as spaces are limited Ten week terms start in January at Northrepps on Tuesdays and The Atrium on Fridays.

To find out more contact Lisa on 01263 576507 or 07725 623758 or email northnorfolk@babysensory.co.uk or visit www.babysensory.com to find your nearest class and book.

Make sure you can vote in next year’s elections Annual Canvass of Electors

North Norfolk residents are being urged not to lose their right to vote in next year’s elections. Every year a revised Electoral Roll is compiled by the Electoral Registration Office for North Norfolk. This is to ensure the electoral register is as up-to-date as possible ahead of next year’s

elections, which will include the European Parliamentary election.

All residents should have received their annual canvass electoral registration forms through the post during the last two weeks of October. A form needs to be returned for all properties, whether occupied or not, including empty properties, second homes and holiday lets.

Suzanne Taylor, North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) Electoral Services Manager, said “Registering to vote is quick and simple. All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with details of everyone who lives in the household and is eli-

gible to vote. If the details on the form are those of a previous resident they should just be crossed off and your own details added. It only takes a few minutes to secure your right to vote.’’

Canvass forms should be returned immediately in the pre-paid envelope provided. The earlier the forms are returned, the lower the cost of the process to the council tax payer. If householders don’t return their forms by the middle of November, a final reminder form will be delivered to those households from which no electoral canvass forms have been received.

It is a legal duty to register and individuals are breaking the law if they do not, facing a fine of up to £1,000. Credit reference agencies use the Electoral Roll as proof of residence, so anyone not registering may find it difficult to obtain a bank account, loan, credit card or mobile phone contract.

Don’t lose your right to vote - remember to register for your place on the Electoral Roll. For more information see www.northnorfolk.org/council/7260.asp or contact NNDC on 01263 516401.

North Walsham & Bradfield Flower Club

On 29 November, 120 members and guests officially celebrated the Club's 55th birthday in the Community Centre by welcoming back Alan Smith & Lee Berrill who gave a spectacular Christmas demonstration (pictured) followed by a delicious afternoon tea and celebration cake.

Christmas & Winter Wreaths Throughout December, our Winter Wreaths will be available to buy or order. They are freshly made from evergreen foliage in foam rings and will last outside for at least two months - often longer, making them very economical and fuss-free for a winter tribute or outdoor decoration. Our 12" rings are £8 and the 10" rings are £6. Spray trays with handle are £5. We use foliage only, or we can add just a little berried/cone decoration or we can really bling up for your front door! The choice is yours.

Garden Friends, Frost & Winter Colour…

There’s a definite chill in the air and winter is fast approaching. Berries are abundant this year thanks to the favourable spring; however the leaves are late to fall this year and now is the time to tidy up the garden before the worst of the winter weather arrives. Be especially aware of hibernating toads, newts and hedgehogs, particularly the latter as numbers continue to decline in hedgehog populations. If you discover a hedgehog then you certainly are lucky for it to have chosen your garden to settle down in for the winter – rather there than beside a busy road!

While the word “hardy” is often thrown around in haste, frost can be particularly disastrous for tender plants – small, potted plants can be transferred to the greenhouse or conservatory but some larger plants such as tree ferns can be packed with straw and wrapped to protect the crown and fronds.

Gardens need never be dull this time of year. There’s plenty of colour to be found on trees such as Sorbus, Contoneaster, Viburnum and Holly. Why not bring the colour indoors with your own arrangements from the garden, or a Hyacinth vase?

With less planning, instant colour can be had from typical bedding plants such as Cyclamen and Winter Pansies. A wide variety of grasses can add texture and movement to your garden, particularly with winter dew and cobwebs dangling between them. A popular local Norfolk variety is Carex elata ‘Aurea Bowles’ Golden Sedge, discovered by botanist EA Bowles in East Anglia. Barry & Rob’s Gardening Services

NORTH WALSHAM IN BLOOM

On Monday 11 November North Walsham in Bloom had their Annual General Meeting, and this proved to be quite a historic event. We decided at this meeting to restore the two somewhat neglected beds in Grammar School Road. We are of the opinion that we are in a position to make these beds a very attractive feature at the main entrance to our Town, and this we intend to do in the next few months. We are looking at ways to really bring some structure and colour to this area. So watch this space.

2013 has been a very successful year for us. All the beds and tubs have been looking at their best for most of the summer. After a very cold start in early May which did give us problems in a couple of places, everything got going really well. Our Church doorway display this year has brought some well deserved praise to the ladies who look after this area, and we only hope that we can achieve the same next spring. Our new tubs with their water reservoirs have made a lot of difference as to what we can plant, and these have now been in place for a year. Doesn’t time fly when you are busy gardening. Please continue to stop and speak to us when you see us working about the town, it is lovely to know you appreciate our efforts.

Community Choir achieves its target for WW1 Commemoration with help of North Norfolk Big Society Fund Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society are delighted to announce that, thanks to a generous grant of £10,450 from the North Norfolk District Council Big Society Fund, their World War One Centenary commemoration project is now fully funded.

The Choral Society has commissioned the renowned composer Patrick Hawes to write a new large scale choral work to commemorate the outbreak of the First World War in 2014. The world premiere performance will take place in Norwich Cathedral on Saturday 12 July 2014 as part of the First World War Centenary Partnership, led by IWM (Imperial War Museums). Prior to that Patrick will deliver a workshop at the Auden Theatre on 17 May 2014, open to both children and adults, to talk about the art of composing and share some of the music prior to its first formal performance. The BSF grant will make it possible for the choir to offer more than 100 free places to local school children. Later in the year a local premiere will take place on Saturday 8 November 2014 in St Peter’s Church Sheringham.

This WW1 Centenary Remembrance Concert will be an important and significant commemoration event for north Norfolk and the Choral Society is hugely appreciative of the acknowledgement and support of North Norfolk District Council.

Patrick Hawes recently visited the 100-strong community choir during a rehearsal to talk about how his composition is progressing. His brother, a priest and poet, Canon Andrew Hawes, has written the libretto which is

Patrick Hawes’ recent visit to a Society rehearsal L-R: Nathan Waring (musical director), Patrick Hawes, Bob Cumber (chairman), Lawrence Tao (assistant musical director). Photo credit EDP Library (with permission)

based on the life and faith of Norfolk’s WW1 heroine, nurse Edith Cavell, who was executed in Belgium in 1915. Patrick is now well advanced with the composition process and he explained that the work will contain extracts from Edith’s final letter to “her nurses” and from sacred texts that she knew in depth, as well as first hand accounts of her final days. The premiere performance will be accompanied by the English Chamber Orchestra with soprano soloist Elin Manahan Thomas and a children’s choir made up from students attending Gresham’s International Britten Music Course 2014. Musical Director for the choir and Director of the International Britten Music Course at Gresham’s, Nathan Waring said, "I am enormously grateful to all donor organisations who have contributed thus far to this project, including

grants for the arts from Arts Council England and North Norfolk Big Society Fund. Their support and involvement in this project has enabled us to move forwards in the preparation of these unique musical events to mark the centenary of WW1. We look forward to working closely with Patrick Hawes as he continues to compose this major new choral work in this exciting collaboration between Sheringham & Cromer Choral Society, the English Chamber Orchestra, the International Britten Music Course at Gresham's, and of course our soloist, Elin Manahan Thomas".

SING WHILE YOU SHOP

Local groups and residents in North Walsham have the exclusive opportunity to take part in ‘Sing while you Shop’ – a carol singing event hosted at Sainsbury’s North Walsham on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 December.

Sainsbury’s North Walsham are encouraging local residents, including professional choirs, singing families, friends and regional groups including schools, charities and community clubs to spread the festive cheer at their local Sainsbury’s. By taking part, the carol singers will have the option to raise funds for the store’s local charity partner, Millfield Pre-School – or a local charity of their choice.

The weekend event will see all in store music switched off for two days to make way for eight carol singing groups who will provide entertainment to Sainsbury’s North Walsham customers as they shop, singing a selection of Christmas classics, festive songs and carols.

If your group has not already been contacted but you would like to know more about how you could join in please phone Sainsbury’s North Walsham on 01692 500498 or ask at the customer services desk.

This activity is part of a nationwide carol singing drive by the retailer. ‘Sing while you Shop’ will also help the retailer move a step closer towards its commitment to donate over £400 million to charitable causes by 2020 as part of Sainsbury’s community investment plan. 18

The children are back to school. Summer seems to be over so now is the time to rejuvenate your skin and reverse some of the sun damage The light that treats all skin care needs. IPL and laser treatments at the Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic. We have a choice of 11 different laser and light devices.

Recently, intense pulsed light devices have gained popularity. Unlike lasers, IPL devices produce a broadband light and effectively target a number of cosmetic concerns such as brown/ black pigmentation, red and blue vessels, enlarged pores and fine skin lines simultaneously. Patients see gradual but very noticeable improvements with complexion blending and brightening, achieving photo rejuvenation of the skin.

New technology can now treat unsightly leg veins, facial redness, facial veins, acne and scarring, enlarged pores, sallow complexion, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. 75% of population between 35 and 65 have some kind of treatable pigment problem. Intense Pulse Light ( IPL™) and our lasers use controlled flashes of light to resolve these imperfections with no downtime.

Facial redness and spider veins are a common cosmetic and medical complaint. These are particularly common in rosacea sufferers. Numerous treatments are available and these produce variable results but laser and light based treatments are the gold-standard treatment options.

We have a number of anti-ageing treatments available today. These include anti-ageing supplements, vitamins, lotions, potions and hormones. What is striking is that none of these reverse skin ageing and prevent skin ageing to the extent that IPL does.

Waitrose Support Matthew Project

We now have the technology and considerable experience of using this technology effectively to repair the appearance of damaged skin, delay and help prevent signs of skin ageing and also possibly reduce the risk of skin cancers in the treated skin. It works very well on the face, neck, chest, arms and anywhere on the body.

Visit www.coltishallclinic.co.uk or phone us on 0800 0430737 to book an appointment.

Sharon Hulbert, Media & Fundraising Manager for the Matthew Project, said "We were absolutely delighted that Waitrose at North Walsham and their customers supported our charity during the month of September.

The £360 donated will help fund our new "Outside The Wire" service, working with serving and ex-forces personnel with issues around substance misuse. This much needed service is provided by Matthew Project staff at The Junction in Cromer who themselves are ex-forces and understand the issues faced by this sector."

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Normally, at this time of year, we receive fewer requests to take kittens into care, but this has not been the case this year. We have had nine kittens in from one household since our last article. The five youngest came in with their mother and there are also another two adult cats on the waiting list. Fortunately, because the kittens are young, we can place them with our home fosterers thereby allowing us to keep the cat pens free for the older cats waiting to come in. Although some come into care because there is a change in their family’s circumstances, so many have come in because their owners discover they cannot find homes for them and cannot afford to look after them properly. In these instances we always offer help with neutering the mother cat to prevent the problem occurring again.

We still have lots of kittens of various ages, sex and colour in care. All will have had a health check at the vets and their first vaccination. If old enough they will also have been micro chipped and had their second vaccination (if not we pay for this to be done at the appropriate time). Older kittens may also have been neutered if the vets consider them to be big enough. Although we would love them all to be offered a new home, we would emphasise that they cannot be homed as presents at Christmas time, as introducing a young kitten to a new home when so much is happening there would not be fair to it.

As Christmas is fast approaching, we were delighted to see so many of our friends and supporters at the Christmas Sale on 16 November. We raised £1,259.18 for the cats in care and enjoyed catching up with news of some of our previous residents (including some lovely photographs). Congratulations to Mrs Rivett who won first prize in the raffle, a big thank you to all our volunteers for their hard work making the event so successful and many thanks also to the generous people who donated gifts and prizes for the stalls and raffle.

If you are looking for a cat or kitten please give a call on 01692 535858. Alternatively you can visit

www.cats.org.uk/ northwalsham

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.

A Furry Tail with a Happy Ever After

Members of Animal Magic Dog Club took part in the recent sponsored dog walk in aid of FAITH rescue centre raising a tail wagging £726.

June Phipps, Animal Magic’s Fairy Dogmother – our voluntary charity liaison officer, encouraged club members, friends and family to join forces and attend the fundraising event. The work of a Fairy Dogmother is never done and June waved her Animal Magic wand and granted a wish to one very lucky dog called Diesel. This lovely boy who’d been in the care of FAITH since May found his forever home with a friend of her family who’d taken part in the walk. Diesel has settled into his new home well and thanks to his Fairy Dogmother, his wish for a happy ever after really did come true.

Ambulance service recruits just seven additional paramedics in the last year

The net total of new paramedics recruited this year by the East of England Ambulance Service Trust was just seven - despite the trust pledging 224 more.

Denise Burke, Labour's prospective parliamentary candidate for North Norfolk, said “These figures are very disappointing. We are never going to get the additional double staffed ambulances if we are not able to build up paramedic numbers – it is absolutely crazy. We accept there is not a quick fix to get the necessary qualified staff, but how much time does this trust need to become fit for purpose?” She added: "We cannot continue to run an ambulance service where the existing staff are doing overtime, it is leaving the frontline staff frustrated with the organisation."

New figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the local ambulance service hired 44 qualified paramedics as well as three specialist paramedics in the first nine months of the year - but 40 paramedics left the service between January and September. The net total of just seven falls significantly short of the 231 promised.

North Norfolk Labour Party's Act on Ambulances campaigners have criticised the trust for freezing the recruitment process last year in a bid to make savings, and for still failing to fulfil promises of additional ambulances on the road.

Also this month it was revealed the interim Chief Executive of the East of England Ambulance Service Trust could have been entitled to a £490,000 payout as part of the Government's recent reorganisation of the NHS. It was later

F1 Crayford and Abbs

revealed that as CEO Andrew Morgan was still in employment within the NHS he was not entitled to the money, but reports suggest the total amount of payouts for executives of the former Patient Care Trust could have been £1.2m. This prompted much criticism from across the political spectrum.

However Mrs Burke also criticised the Government for allowing this to happen: "Does our local MP, the health minister, think that the electorate is naïve enough to believe that they weren’t aware of the implications of disbanding the primary trusts? By passing the buck MPs are taking us for fools. This is money that should have been reinvested back into the NHS to deal with the impending winter crisis in A&E."

Local Nissan dealership Crayford and Abbs recently came first out of 32 dealers to win a trip of a lifetime to Abu Dhabi. They were the only East Anglian dealer to attend the four day holiday with the MD and Directors of Nissan.

During the trip Kevin Abbs said he ‘was entertained by driving the sand dunes in Dubai, visiting and eating at the world's tallest building, Burj Dubai and playing golf at the Colin Montgomerie Championship course culminating in a two day pass in the Red Bull hospitality suite which included a presentation by Mark Webber prior to the Sunday’s final race’.

In total there were ten winners from Great Britain who each enjoyed business class flights and a luxury holiday of a life time. Our photo shows Kevin Abbs Dealer Principal of Crayford and Abbs with James from the Red Bull racing team during a tour of the Red Bull Paddock station at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Living as husband and wife Written by Margaret Smith – Solicitor with Hayes & Storr The recent unreported case of Swetenham –v- Walkley has considered the definitions of “as husband and wife” and “same household” in relation to financial claims against the estate of a deceased person by their cohabitant.

It also dealt with the question of whether it is the internal or external nature of the relationship that is more important. The background law to this is that, in order to bring a successful claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975, a claimant must show both that he/she and the deceased were living in the same household and that they were cohabiting ‘as husband and wife’.

The facts behind the case make interesting reading and the judge put great emphasis on the deceased’s eccentricity and obsessive behaviour; sadly, there is not space here to give full details! The parties had been together for over 30 years, were committed to each other and accepted externally to be partners. There were elements of the practicalities of their relationship that were unusual; however, they

appeared to the outside world to be ‘husband and wife’. This meant that they were held to have passed both the ‘internal’ and the ‘external’ tests.

The leading case on the subject has long been Re Watson where the judge emphasised the importance of the external appearance of the relationship and said that ‘one should not ignore the multifarious nature of the marital relationship;’ which, in this case, meant that it was not relevant that the couple had always slept in separate bedrooms and that they each owned a house.

In two other cases the internal nature of the relationship was emphasised. In Churchill –v- Roach the elements of permanence, mutual support as well as ‘a degree of voluntary restraint on personal freedom’ and ‘community of resources’ were stated. In Fitzpatrick –v- Sterling Housing ‘mutual interdependence, the sharing of lives and of caring and… support’ were given as important.

In Southern Housing –v- Nutting the judge required both the internal ‘mutual lifetime commitment’ and the external ‘that the relationship must be openly and unequivocally displayed to the world.’

This approach continues in Swetenham; one must first satisfy the internal test and then cross-check with the external test.

“New facility will help pupils build valuable employment skills” - Norman Lamb

Earlier this month North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb opened a new work space at Sidestrand Hall School in North Norfolk. The new work space will replace an old hanger on the site, and will be used for teaching mechanics and buildings skills to Sidestrand Hall pupils as well as pupils from other local schools.

VEHICLE DISMANTLERS & END OF LIFE VEHICLE RECYCLING CENTRE

Commenting, Norman Lamb said “This new facility will help pupils build valuable employment skills. Sidestrand Hall School is a fantastic school, which does really inspirational work supporting pupils who often have complex needs. I have always been very impressed with

Poppy Line Explores Running to Cromer

Earlier this month North Norfolk Railway managing director Hugh Harkett confirmed that the Poppy Line is exploring the possibilities of running to Cromer.

“We’ve been discussing it with franchise holder Greater Anglia (part of Abellio) and with the Department for Transport,” said Mr Harkett. “The plan is for a Sunday service in summer, with the NNR running five steamhauled trains from Cromer to Holt, and Greater Anglia running from Cromer to Norwich. Trains would have to be ‘top and tailed’ with a steam locomotive at each end, as Cromer has no run-round facility.”

Only engines fitted with the mainline Train Protection & Warning System (TPWS) would be allowed to run to Cromer, and the railway will need three locos with this equipment.

The 1947-built George Stephenson, currently on the NNR, is already fitted with TPWS, and plans to fit two other recently restored engines are in hand. Trains will also have to include any other modifications that may be required by the Office of Rail Regulation.

“Greater Anglia is very supportive,” said Mr Harkett. “We are now waiting for comments on our proposals from the Department for Transport and the ORR.”

What are Beaver Scouts?

They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

Home Comfort for Readers North Walsham Library is reminding townspeople about its home delivery service.

Mrs Robotham has used the library service for more than 30 years and now has her books delivered by Sally, RVS (Royal Voluntary Service) volunteer. She says “Sally and I are great pals. Whatever I want, she finds for me. The service is marvellous – if you’re not reading you’re missing out so much”.

Books are available in large print as well as on CD, tape and small MP3 type format, called Playaways.

North Walsham Table Tennis STAR PAVING SERVICES

In Form NWSCB Meet NWSCA in Derby

Derby action in the first division of the Star Paving Services North Norfolk League saw the in-form NWSCB team of Dennis Elliott, Paul Price and Simon Halliday host NWSCA’s Andy Beane, John Batchford, Tom Baldock-Yaxley and John Vaughan at North Walsham Sports Centre with Elliott recovering from two sets down to win a hard-fought opener against Beane. Batchford won an attacking five-setter against Price, before Baldock-Yaxley’s top-spin overcame Halliday’s defence in four. Price prevented Beane from playing his shots as the NWSCB player won 11-9, 11-9, 11-8. A terrific attacking top-spinning performance from Elliott followed against Baldock-Yaxley, who mis-fired at crucial times as Elliott won 11-5, 6-11, 11-9, 11-7. This meant NWSCB led 3-2 at the half-way stage, but the remaining five games went to NWSCA. Halliday took a set from Beane, Batchford completed his maximum in four against Elliott and Vaughan joined in for a doubles victory that completed NWSCA’s 7-3 win. NWSCB won their match the next week away to Aylsham A with well thought out maximums for Halliday and Elliott helping secure the 8-2 victory, while NWSCA won 10-0 at home to Barracudas. Meanwhile a

Joe Kirkup maximum saw NWSCD defeat Aylsham 6-4 and Mary Sawyer and Philip Stone won the concluding doubles to see their match against Trunch Sharks end as a draw.

In the second division, there were some marathon contests as Aylsham B’s Ian Potter, Hugh Rout and Neil Powell hosted NWSCC’s Chris Johnson, Phil Mole and James Morter. Mole took a brace for the visitors and Morter a single in four against Powell while Rout took a maximum for the hosts which was completed 18-16 in the fifth against Morter. Potter’s brace included a tight 11-5, 17-19, 13-11, 11-8 win against Morter, while Powell edged out Johnson 11-5, 10-12, 11-3, 15-17, 14-12. The following week North Walsham’s juniors went head to head at the Sports Centre as Joel Lodge and Stuart Hook both played up to join NWSCC’s James Morter for a derby against NWSCE’s Tom Wardle and James and Ben Lester. With Wardle and James Lester both winning close five-setters POOL 1 against Lodge and Water too cold Ben Lester Too crowded defeating Morter in

four, NWSCE led 3-1 – however Hook took a maximum and combined with Lodge to win the doubles from two sets down against the Lesters as NWSCC made a comeback to win 7-3.

At the time of writing Gresham’s School A lead the first division by twelve points against NWSCA (with a point awarded in the League for every game won plus two bonus points for winning the match, that is the equivalent of a 10-0 win). NWSCB’s decent last month sees them third – but nineteen points behind NWSCA. NWSCC remain third in the second division – eleven points behind leading Hunworth Poachers.
