Grand Charity Afternoon Tea at Chimneys

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

Avid runner and local landlady Jenny Harmer, who has been running Chimneys Bed & Breakfast on Cromer Road, North Walsham for 13 years, will this year be running in the Great North Run to raise money for Cancer Research.

Having recently upgraded her guesthouse, Jenny now offers her guests traditional afternoon tea and when looking for ideas for a charity event to raise money for her upcoming run, Jenny decided that instead of resorting to the usual sponsorship forms, she would hold a Grand Afternoon Tea, at the same time giving her guests the opportunity to see firsthand the results of her hard work at the B & B.

Grand Charity Afternoon Tea at Chimneys

Coninued from front cover... Jenny explained ‘we have a very pretty, large garden here at Chimneys, ideal for sitting out and enjoying the good life. As well as our very popular Afternoon Tea, guests on the day will be able to enjoy listening to North Walsham’s very own fantastically popular Buble Tribute and Wedding Singer, Dale Bullimore and browse craft and local homemade goods stalls’.

Tickets will be £15 a head, available in advance only and to include a free glass of bubbly.

Jenny continues ‘Posh frocks and fascinators are optional but I thought it might be great to get dressed up. We have planned the event on 14 June, to coincide with the Queen’s Official birthday which is apt as we are great Royalists!’

So ladies and gents of North Walsham, time to get out your ‘glad rags’ and sample the delights of a traditional afternoon tea and support a fantastic cause at the same time.

Please ring Jenny on 01692 406172 to reserve your tickets.

Found in Thorpe Market Road, Roughton on Monday 5 May a Volvo remote car key fob. Please telephone 01263 761272.

Dear Margaret,

I am pleased to see that the Labour Party's petition for later trains to and from Norwich in the evenings has reignited a debate on public transport here in North Norfolk.

Over 500 people have now signed the petition online at because they recognise both the benefits to passengers and to the local night-time economy.

It is good to hear that Greater Anglia are considering timetable tweaks but we do not think this goes far enough.

Many who have signed the petition would like to see trains run until midnight rather than the present 10.45pm time. We have heard from passengers who attend shows at Cromer Pier who also would like to see trains beyond 8pm on a Sunday evening.

There are passengers who want to see a better deal for those travelling to Worstead and Gunton too.

This passenger input should be crucial in deciding future rail contracts, and also when drawing up bus timetables in and out of the city too. By making these adjustments we will encourage more to give up their cars to use public transport. Yours sincerely, Jono Read Press Officer for North Norfolk Labour

Dear Margaret,

May we, through The North Walsham Times, say that the sum raised at the MS Coffee Morning at Thorpe Market Church raised £377.80. Many thanks to all who donated, helped and bought. Yours sincerely, Mandy Hayward and Hazel Patrickson

Stay On Board at the Ship Inn It's taken the owner of the Ship Inn at Mundesley less than a year to return the Ship to its historic roots. Since taking over in April last year, the almost derelict rooms, not used for the last 15 to 20 years, which once housed holiday makers or weary travellers, have been transformed into modern guest rooms.

The Ship Inn can boast of being one of the oldest Inns in Norfolk, with well over 200 years of history trading as a pub or hotel or combination of both and of course its seaside location has always made it a popular venue for visitors looking for a holiday beside the sea.

Now the excellent restaurant, catered for by head chef Aiden and his staff, can handle 200

Ship overall retains its old world charm and its great location."

George continued, "Most of the rooms have spectacular seaviews, as the Ship is so close to the beach that if you step out of the garden you're on sand. Most are also en-suite too. All have been kitted with pine furniture and TVs with Freeview."

Owner George commented, "We are already filling our reservations for the main part of the summer, and the response so far from our guests has been very positive. We have modernised our guest rooms, but the

News from the White Horse Overstrand with Head Chef Nathan Boon

We have had a very busy spring and are looking forward to a great summer of sunshine and great food. We are planing our new menus and wine list so that we can ring the changes and follow our policy of only serving fresh produce from our local suppliers.

The White Horse is now the home for Overstrand Together the new funding raising group set up earlier this year to raise funds for the village as well as creating a number of fun events that we hope everyone will support. One of the already planned events is the White Horse Car Wash on Saturday 12th July 8am - 2pm. It’s just £5 per car with all the money raised going to Overstrand Together. And while you wait for your car to be washed you can enjoy a tasty bacon roll or slice of cake served with tea or coffee. The day is always great fun with villagers and locals all gathering to have their cars washed and if the weather is fine sitting together chatting while watching the volunteer car washers work on their vehicles.

NORTH WALSHAM IN BLOOM The time has come for us to say a very sad farewell to Liz Cornwall.

Liz was one of the founder members of our group back in the 1990s. We will all miss her and her enthusiasm. Sometimes problems which have to the rest of us have seemed rather daunting, have been taken over by Liz and sorted in her usual capable way. Good luck Liz, we wish you and your husband Tom all the very best in your new life.

Our new bed on Grammar School Road is looking really glorious, and this is before we have added the summer bedding. Several people have asked us when we will be dealing with the second bed. Unfortunately this will have to wait until the autumn now, as we find ourselves lower on helpers than usual. This on top of holidays for our existing band is somewhat of a headache. However we will do our best as we always do. We have been working on all the beds around the bypass and these should be looking good in the next few weeks. The churchyard – particularly the cross – is looking great and all the tubs have survived the winter and spring very well indeed. Having such mild weather makes all the difference to our displays.

Summer Planting starts on 2 June, so if anyone has any time to spare please give one of us a ring.

Monthly Jazz at The Goat

Readers of these pages will know that, for some time, the Norfolk Dixieland Jazz Band, in partnership with the owners of The Goat Inn, Skeyton, has been promoting jazz at the venue. We are pleased to say that the events have become so popular that, from June, they will be held on the first Sunday of every month. The music will start at 1.30pm and admission will, as always, be free. You can just drop in and have a drink or eat in the restaurant, the garden room or, during the summer, in the garden. If you would like a table for lunch, however, it is essential to book by telephoning 01692 538600.

The band emerged from the ashes of another popular local traditional jazz band and spokesman for the band, Vic. Brown, said “The quality of the band was never in doubt but to find a venue willing to promote and invest in jazz, particularly during the economic climate during the last few years, has been extremely fortunate. The set-up at The Goat is very professional and it’s rewarding to work with the owners and their team”.

Dates for your diary until the New Year are 1 June, 6 July, 3 August, 7 September, 5 October, 2 November, 7 December and 4 January.

The Sheringham Players go “ON THE RAZZLE”

To celebrate their 50th anniversary The Sheringham players will stage Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece ’ON THE RAZZLE’ directed by June Cooper assisted by Julian High (both founder members of The Sheringham Players).

June Cooper together with other young, enthusiastic actors (including Julian) formed The Sheringham Players in 1964 with a production of Noel Coward’s ‘Blythe Spirit’. Little did they realise that 50 years on they would still be producing plays. Their aim has always been to entertain local audiences and visitors whose loyal support has ensured their survival.

‘ON THE RAZZLE’ – a prime example of Tom Stoppard’s mastery of farce and language consists of two hours of slapstick, shenanigans, mistaken identities, misdirected orders, malapropisms, double entendres and romantic complications. Set in Vienna in the 1880s and packed full of laughter it promises to be an unmissable production.

The Sheringham Players invites you to join in their celebration of 50 years of theatre between the 11th and 14th June at 7.30pm at Sheringham Little Theatre.

Tickets are now on sale at £10 (to include a special souvenir programme) and are selling fast. To book ring the box office at Sheringham Little Theatre on 01263 822347 or book online at

Scouts is all about individuals pulling together to make a difference for everyone.

We started our fundraising season with an Easter Car Boot Sale. Ben Youngs from North Walsham Garden Centre generously offered the use of his Garden Centre Car Park. We were awoken on the day by thunder and lightning, but car booters are a hardy lot and wouldn’t be deterred. We set up at 8am and when the sun came out at 10am we were delighted to see so many people. Liam (Scout), Jack (Cub Scout) and James (Beaver Scout) did a first rate job and raised over £80 in their collection buckets altogether with the pitch sales we raised £134.

Our next event was the Quiz & Chips night. Mark Feneron, owner of Select Cash & Carry on Hurricane Way, Norwich, donated six bottles of wine and £100 towards our event.

Mark and Claire Rushen of The Cockerel Tea Rooms & Restaurant in North Walsham provided the top-notch nosh for the evening free of charge, which meant that everything that we made went towards our roof-repair fund. The Beechwood Hotel contributed a dining voucher which was used in our raffle. The evening was a huge success, thanks to the generosity of our local businesses and the hard work of the fundraising team, but most of all from everyone who supported us on the night. Thank you to everyone who contributed to raising an amazing £442.

We will be at North Walsham Fund-Day on Sunday 29 June - do come and see us if you want to be part of it. Ever thought of

volunteering? You could be our next committee member, or a parent helper, you’ll be surprised but you already have the skills to make a difference – Join The Adventure!

For membership questions – we would love to hear from you.

Treasure Chest Trail

To celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Brownies we are inviting everyone to join in our celebration and come into North Walsham during half term week to complete our Treasure Chest Trail.

The Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Guiders have been very busy making the Treasure Chests which will be placed in the windows of shops in North Walsham town centre from 24 to 31 May, half term week. There will be trail sheets on sale in Sam's Pets, House of Hobbies and

Pages Sweet Shop. Just pick up a sheet and hunt for the Treasure Chests to answer the questions (the answers can be found on the Treasure Chests) then pop into the Guide HQ on Aylsham Road to collect a special prize and maybe have a cup of tea or coffee and a cake.

This will be similar to the Hippo Hunt, but smaller, we hope it will be fun for everyone and we look forward to seeing lots of people out and about during the half term week.

Paston Sixth Form College News

Paston Celebrates 30 years as a Sixth Form College

On Saturday 28 June, starting at 3pm, Paston Sixth Form College plans to celebrate 30 years as one of the top performing colleges in the country.

The College was formed in 1984 following a secondary reorganisation in North East Norfolk. Paston School merged with North Walsham High School for Girls to form the Sixth Form College. All current staff, ex-staff and students are invited to attend the event. There will be an opportunity to meet up with friends and colleagues from the past and share memories of life at the College over the last 30 years. Photographs, newsletters and articles will be on display and people attending will be given the opportunity to post copies of photographs on a memory board. A studio is being set up to record people’s memories, stories and accounts of life at the College. Current students will be involved in giving tours of the College to showcase some of the new buildings such as the new student centre, study centre and the Scarburgh Science building. Plans for the new £1.5million Art centre and Theatre will also be on display.

College Principal Kevin Grieve said “we are all extremely proud of what staff, students and Corporation members have achieved over the last 30 years. The college, now with 800 students, is in good shape at 30 years old and everyone involved is excited about its future prospects”.

Please see further details about the event on the College Website and Facebook. If you would like to attend the event please contact Anne Isaacson by email, or by telephone on 01692 402334.

Preparing for their Future

At Paston Sixth Form College, students have been working hard to gain the skills which employers and universities are looking for.

As part of the Paston Employability Skills Award, students gain points for taking part in a variety of activities including work experience, voluntary work, completing first aid qualifications and various careers tasks.

The first group of students recently received their Bronze Awards and now have the chance to gain a Silver and Gold. College Tutor, Dean Crosbie, who introduced the scheme, said “Our students are extremely motivated, not just to get excellent exam results but to become more employable and these awards give them recognition for the great things they are doing and the skills they are gaining, outside of the classroom”.

Principal, Kevin Grieve said “I am particularly proud of what the students have achieved this year through the skills award. These are important skills to allow students to succeed in the very competitive jobs market after University or when they have completed their A levels and BTEC qualifications”.

Professional roles for Paston Sixth Form College students

On Saturday, 3 May, ten students from both AS and A2 Drama and Theatre Studies came along to audition for two roles from the Ray Cooney farce, 'Caught In The Net'. The lucky students who successfully got the professional engagement were Megan Bailes who is to play the role of teenager Vicki Smith and Josh Duckmanton who is cast as teenager Gavin Smith. They will begin rehearsing over their summer holidays for just 10 days, along with a professional cast and crew in Sheringham Little Theatre’s 2014 Summer Repertory Season which opens on Saturday 9 – Thursday 21 August.

This is a traditional British farce set in modern day and is one of the highlights of the season for many of the summer audience. It is written by Ray Conney, a master of British farce, and a sequel to his hugely popular comedy Run for your Wife. Their roles are integral to this play and as such they will form a central part of this a professional company.

All 10 students who auditioned impressed Debbie Thompson, the Theatre Director, and Simon Thompson director and teacher of drama and theatre studies, with their incredibly talented readings and professional approach to the auditions.

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

When cats come into care we hope that they will soon find new homes but unfortunately this is not always the case. Some cannot be put up for adoption straight away for various reasons. This may be because they have not been socialised properly before they come into care or they may have a health issue which needs to be resolved before they go on our website. Cats like Smudge, a lovely grey and white boy. He came into care with companion Mitzy as, when his owner split with her partner, she left the cats behind. They had been fed and had shelter but were not wanted and, when they arrived after a year without any loving care, Smudge in particular was a very stressed cat. Although the older of the two cats, Mitzy soon settled and left us for a new home some time ago, Smudge took longer to learn to trust his fosterer but finally was ready to receive a thorough examination at the vets where it was discovered he needed a dental as his teeth and gums needed attention. As his fosterer volunteers at his vets she was able to be there when Smudge had his operation and said his mouth was in an awful state. She cannot believe the difference this has made as he is now so much friendlier and it is obvious that Smudge is now a much happier cat. Because we are happy that he is ready for a new home, we will be putting him on our website so that people can see what a handsome lad he is and hopefully he will soon find a loving new home.

Other cats tend to remain with us longer than normal, although it is not

It had been a bad week, So I asked God why he hadn't answered my prayers. There was silence. I asked again why he hadn't answered my prayers. And silence again. So I asked again, louder this time. And the silence was so loud I could hear the Wind rustling in the trees outside. Then, as clear as a mountain stream, Warm as a woollen blanket, a voice. ' I give you what you need, not always what you ask for'

always obvious why they get overlooked. Working with the cats, we tend to judge them by their temperament and character rather than the colour or length of their coat and often find our “favourite” is still with us while his/her friends have left. Cats like Horatio, Fernie, Dash, Summer and her daughter Squall, have all been with us some time and are really delightful cats to look after. However, like recent residents Bentley, Magic and dear little Bijou they too will find new homes, given time.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Visit

Paston Sixth Form students, Sophie Coles and Jasper Haywood had the opportunity of visiting the infamous concentration camp AuschwitzBirkenau, as part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Lessons from Auschwitz project.

Here Sophie talks about her experience: Many people have asked me why I wanted to go and see the camp, and the answer is simple; it’s not that I wanted to go, I had to go. By going I could ‘re-humanise’ the victims that were so brutally murdered during the Holocaust; put names to the faces and see the sheer scale and depth of the camps. When you read about the death tolls in the text books, it’s just so impersonal it’s so easy to overlook the individuals- but to go to Auschwitz and you are reminded of everyone’s stories, and understand that these people had lives, which were so ruthlessly taken away from them.

Life before the Holocaust was normal marriages between Germans and Jews were not uncommon, and everyone went about their day to day lives. Before the visit to Auschwitz, I heard Susan Pollack’s story; she is a Hungarian survivor from Auschwitz-Birkenau. She spoke of her life before the genocide, and how discrimination towards the Jews escalated into something so monstrous. She remembered how hard it was for her to get into college, and how when she finally did she was forced to sit at

least two rows behind everyone else in the classroom. What struck me most about her account was how the camps were referred to; she repeatedly called it an industry. To think of something so horrific being referred to as something so ordinary, and that it was on such a scale that it could be talked of as an industry, was shocking. It was an industry of death.

The camp itself was both surprising and unsurprising for me- after having watched the film ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ as well as having seen many photos. The camp looked

exactly how I’d imagined it. Nothing, however, could have prepared me for the size of it. I knew it would have been big. But the camp itself is about four times bigger than what I’d thought. It went on as far as the eye could see, and Poland is a very flat country, which is saying something.

Cornish Way, North Walsham 14

There is a museum on the main site, and one room shocked me more than any other. Not the one full of photos, personal belongings, or the paperwork of each individual victim, or the one full of empty cans where the gas pellets were kept, or the one with false legs and Zimmer frames, but one which had a NO PHOTOGRAPHY sign outside. It was a room full of hair. Hair which had once been brushed, stroked, patted, kissed, tied back, gelled, with combs, bobbles and plats still in them. And in this room was only some. On arrival, and, I suppose, the duration of their stay, the Jews were processed. Upon arrival, they were shaved and disinfected, and forced into inhumane conditions, because, to many at the time, that was how they were seen by the Nazis- as parasites, as animals.

Auschwitz was cold, desolate, miserable and empty. As I walked down the infamous train tracks, the tracks that took each of them into the camp, I felt hollow and numb. ‘How could humans have done this?’ was the most dominant question on my mind for the duration of the way home, and I’m still not sure I know the answer.

Kelly Clarke Motor Services A

camp would have stretched.

On a foggy day, the guide explained the Nazi’s had planned to increase the size of the camp, that they’d already been expanding it on three sides. He said that on a clear day, you could make out a tall blue building in the distance, and that was the intended distance that the

At the end of our day, the Rabbi who came with us initiated a memorial ceremony for us. He sung a prayer, and we lit candles and placed them on the tracks. It was beautiful, and although it was a cold and windy day, some of the eternal flames still burned.

As I looked back down the tracks, I realised that they led straight into the camp; the Jews would never have even had a chance to go outside of it again. They were prisoners the moment they stepped onto that dark cramped carriage.

On leaving, we saw local people roller skating and jogging along outside the camp. Life goes on, but we still must remember, even though it’s easier to forget.

Pollack said, "My hope is for a unified protest against all evil, which diminishes not only the victim, but humanity as a whole.”

I believe that her hope reflects all of ours. We cannot let these events be repeated, or else we will lose our humanity. Sophie Coles

FOR A PERSONALISED QUOTATION. North Walsham Times 447 May 24th 2014

Everyone walk the Dinosaur!

Children from Early phase in Millfield Primary School in North Walsham did just that in a ‘dinosaur’ themed catwalk.

The children’s learning theme last term was all about dinosaurs and to round off such an exciting theme they strutted their stuff along a catwalk set up in the school hall in a special celebration assembly for their parents.

Eggs’ordinary Performance

Millfield Primary School in North Walsham showed off its musical talents in a special Easter performance for parents and families.

The school’s Choir Club joined forces with the children who take music lessons in guitar and piano at the school, the Ukulele Club and the children from Upper Phase in an hour long performance.

Parents were thoroughly entertained by songs from ‘Oliver!’ sung by the children from Upper Phase, who even came into school dressed in Victorian costumes.

The children. along with the help of their parents, had made costumes for the special fashion show and amazingly no two were the same. An array of ‘dinosaurs’ stomped their way along the runway including T Rex, Pterodactyls and Triceratops, to name but a few and luckily no one was eaten!

As usual the hall was packed with parents and family who enjoyed the exciting show with parents joining in with some dancing at the end of the show!

One parent said “What a wonderful afternoon, it was so great to see the children enjoying themselves so much!”

Cantamus Summer Concert

Cantamus Choir will be hosting their summer concert at St Nicholas, North Walsham on Saturday 7 June at 7pm.

We will be performing two contrasting German Romantic works, the well known Mass in G by Franz Schubert, and a psalm setting by Felix Mendelssohn, for which we will again be joined by local soprano Clare Durrant.

It promises to be an enjoyable evening, with this non-auditioned choir singing music with memorable melodies, and a wide variety of emotions.

Tickets will be £5 on the door, with proceeds going towards the Church Tower Restoration Appeal. David Ballard will once again conduct the choir, with Matthew Bond accompanying on the fine 3-manual organ.

The teachers had worked really hard with the pupils and it showed as each performance delighted and amazed the audience. It was a perfect way to finish the term and a fantastic way to showcase the talents held by so many at Millfield Primary.

There were several pieces of music performed by the children who have been learning guitar, piano and keyboard. There was a beautifully crafted piece sung by the Choir Club. The show was finished off with the Ukulele club and Mrs Oldridge; an Early Phase teacher and founder of the school’s Ukulele Club; who had taught the children two wonderful interactive musical numbers. The performance was organised by Ian Willis, who teaches piano and who runs the Choir Club and Mr Burgoyne who teaches the guitar.

MEP calls for more EU money to be made available for coastal defences

Richard Howitt, the Labour MEP for the East of England, has backed calls for more EU money to be made available for coastal defences in the future, and criticised the UK Government for not claiming in time EU solidarity money made available for Norfolk immediately after the flooding.

Mr Howitt said “Climate change is not just an idea for Happisburgh and North Norfolk, it is

to make more help available.

“Local communities rallied together after the floods, and I was one of the first donors to the EDP’s flood appeal, but I was shocked that the UK Government refused to put in a claim for EU money made available to help flood victims.

He was recently given a tour of parts of the North Norfolk coast and met residents still suffering following last year's devastating floods.

“With less money made available for councils to help prevent coastal erosion, and with cuts to flood defences from the Environment Agency highlighted by North Norfolk Labour’s “Protect our Coast” campaign, Europe has a real opportunity to make a difference in coastal towns and villages.

Following the floods, North Norfolk Labour Party launched the 'Protect Our Coast' petition calling on the Environment Agency to reinstate and improve coastal defences.

Richard and North Norfolk Labour’s parliamentary candidate Denise Burke were shown the erosion that led to a Happisburgh house falling into the sea last December.

something that is happening to them right now. Coastal erosion has a devastating effect on communities such as this, and Europe needs

“I will continue to fight for EU money to be made available to make these communities sustainable for years to come.”

Council announces record year for affordable housing completions

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has been able to provide 153 new affordable homes across the district during 2013/14, working in partnership with five housing associations.

This is the highest ever number of affordable dwellings delivered in the district in a single year and the first time that the number of new affordable homes completed by housing associations has exceeded 150 homes.

The completion of 153 affordable homes places North Norfolk at the top of the table for affordable home completions in Norfolk for 2013/14: North Norfolk District Council South Norfolk Council Norwich City Council Breckland Council Broadland District Council Borough Council of Kings Lynn & West Norfolk Great Yarmouth Borough Council


53 152 117 87 80 46 13

Rhodri Oliver, NNDC Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member with responsibility for Housing, said "I am really pleased that we have managed to achieve this exceptional level of affordable housing completions this year. It reflects well on the hard work of all the officers and partners who work together to bring forward affordable housing development across North Norfolk.

“We are fully aware of the continuing need for new homes of all tenures and we will be striving to bring forward more affordable housing developments over the next few years to meet the serious housing need in North Norfolk."

New affordable homes have been provided across North Norfolk including the towns of Fakenham, North Walsham, Sheringham and Hoveton as well as the villages of Honing, Hempton, Northrepps, Potter Heigham and Fulmodeston.

Cromer Carnival Art Week celebrates local artists This month sees the return of the ever-popular Cromer Carnival Art Week. From 23 – 28 May the Parish Hall will host the exhibition of paintings, crafts and photography, to view, enjoy and buy. The exhibition will celebrate over 400 works of art and craft by over 90 artists and seven schools and community groups and is a wonderful celebration of local creativity. The event is one of the early highlights in Cromer Carnival’s calendar which is now in its 45th year. With over 90 artists and numerous community groups taking part it is clear to see that north Norfolk is a hive of culture with applications coming from across the region. Most items are available for sale and proceeds go to Cromer Carnival. Chairman Tony Shipp said “Art Week is one of the longest running events in the Carnival calendar. It was already up and running when

Cromer Voluntary Entertainments Organisation took Carnival on back in the early 1970s. We have continued to try and make it a shop window for local art groups and artists both new and established an over the years we have also seen the addition of a growing number of excellent quality craft stalls. It also has the added attraction of work done by our local schools and youth groups and this year there will be a shield, for the best display as decided by our judge for this year, Gita Dickinson.”

The exhibition is open Friday 23 – Wednesday 28 May, every day from 10.30am – 5.30pm apart from Sunday 25 May (2.30pm – 5.30pm) and Wednesday 28 May (10.30am until 5.00pm).

Cromer Pier and Pavilion Theatre Temporary Box Office

Openwide Coastal have taken delivery of a smart new temporary Box Office while the repair work continues on Cromer Pier after the storm surge last December. Councillor Glyn Williams Cabinet Member responsible for Leisure and Cultural Services officially opened the temporary office on Saturday 3 May.

Also on hand to help celebrate the opening were members of the Cromer and Sheringham Operatic and Dramatic Society (CSODS) whose soon to open run of Oliver will be one of the first to benefit from the new Box Office. Marlene’s School of Dance were also represented by children from the various Saturday classes, some of whom will be hoping to perform in this year’s Cromer Pier Show when it opens for the summer run on 21 June. This year’s show has an all new cast and promises to return to the more traditional routes of Seaside Special bringing plenty of music comedy, song and dance and of course the first half finale with children from Marlene’s School of Dance.

To help the celebration along members of the Operatic Society brought along a cake to share with those attending the opening. Ruth Elliott, one of the publicity team from CSODS said ‘It’s wonderful to have the Box Office back at the land end of the pier. Our tickets sales are doing extraordinarily well and having the box

office at this location will make booking tickets much easier for everyone. We have had a very long and happy relationship with Pavilion Theatre and look forward to continuing that relationship long into the future. Our first show at the theatre was in 1952, we then missed two years because of the Great Storm of 1953 so this occasion in our 100th year of the Society makes this occasion rather special’.

Commenting on the Box Office, Councillor Glyn Williams said ‘The Property team at NNDC is hoping to have the repair works to the shop, office and restaurant area completed before the schools break up for the main summer season."

There was more good news for staff members of the Cromer Pier this month when they received a Commendation award from the Mayor and members of Cromer Town Council. The award was presented in recognition of the valued and outstanding contribution to the community of Cromer in getting the Pier and Pavilion Theatre up and running so quickly after the December storm surge so that

theatre-goers could celebrate the festive season with a visit to the Cromer Christmas Show.

Rebecca Wass General Manager of Cromer Pier said ‘I am delighted to have received this award on behalf of all the staff that got stuck in and got the pier open so quickly, it was and still is our mantra that ‘the show must go on’ whatever the problems’.

The temporary Box Office will be open daily from 10am -6pm with extended hours from the opening of the Cromer Pier Show 21 June – 20 September.

Local communities will suffer if County Council reneges on long-standing agreement say District Council leaders

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk (BCKLWN) are calling on Norfolk County Council to urgently reconsider the proposed reduction of £1.04 million in second homes money currently earmarked to be paid to District Councils and used to support community-based projects.

In the attempt to find the £30m costs following the decision to withdraw from the ill-fated incinerator contract County Council officers have recommended that to raise some of the cash required they should take the half of the money raised from council tax on second homes that the County Council currently redistributes to District Councils.

NNDC Leader, Tom FitzPatrick said “It would be highly inappropriate for the County Council to withdraw unilaterally from the current arrangements, which are based on a long standing agreement reached by the Leaders

of all of Norfolk’s local authorities.

“This money helps people to stay in rural communities where there is a high proportion of second homes and helps tackle rural isolation as well as providing support to small communities and community groups to raise money for facilities they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford”.

If the money is withdrawn it will have a serious impact on local communities, as all the funds raised in this way are targeted at community projects in those areas where second home ownership is particularly high. Schemes to have benefitted include the Homes for Wells project, providing affordable homes for local people, school improvement programmes and replenishment of sea defences, as well as providing financial support for a raft of local initiatives that would not otherwise have gone ahead.

Cllr Nick Daubney, Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, added “When an agreement is reached as to how something will be dealt with, I think we have every right to expect that agreement to be upheld. We have been collecting second homes money for several years now on the understanding that 50% gets redistributed to the districts and the remaining 50% goes to county infrastructure projects across the county.

“We have used the money for very constructive partnership working, most particularly to raise the standard of local education services. We’ve made commitments on the basis of receiving that income being available and people have committed to us, on that same understanding.

“The people who were misguided enough to sign the contract for the incinerator should pay for their error. The burden should not be placed on the districts that are already bearing the impact of second home ownership.”

Call for entries for the Graham Allen Awards 2014

Renovation projects and new buildings that sensitively capture the distinctive character of our local architecture could be in line for a prestigious award from North Norfolk District Council (NNDC).

North Norfolk has a history of producing high quality innovative developments and renovation projects, and entries are now being sought for this year’s Graham Allen Awards, the annual NNDC awards for excellence in conservation and design. The closing date for entries is 30 June, 2014. The awards were inaugurated in 1982 as a memorial to the late


G.S. Allen, the first Chairman of NNDC, to recognise the scheme that makes the biggest contribution to North Norfolk’s unique built heritage.

During their lifetime a diverse range of projects have scooped the awards, ranging from the new cloisters and refectory building at the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham to the refurbishment of the Gunton Arms, Thorpe Market, and last year’s winner, the Priory at Weybourne.

North Walsham Table Tennis Another Cup for NWSCA as Action Reaches its Conclusion

The action has concluded in the Star Paving Services North Norfolk Table Tennis League for another season. The fourth and last final was the Handicap Doubles Cup as NWSCA’s John Vaughan, Tom Baldock-Yaxley and Andy Beane faced Backhander’s Teucer Wilson, Whil De Neve and Paul Warner. The match took place on neutral ground at Trunch Village Hall and was umpired by Derek Philpott. The final was actually a repeat of the Knockout Doubles with the same six players involved – NWSCA had won that one 5-1 and a closer affair was expected this time, but a combination of good fortune and great shot-making meant that NWSCA again won 5-1. Backhanders also featured in one of the two Cup finals not to feature any home teams

as they won the Handicap Singles with a nail-biting 5-4 win against Aylsham A – Wilson winning the deciding set of the deciding match against John Miller. Meanwhile Gresham’s School A won the Knockout Singles Cup after defeating Hunworth Outlaws 5-1 in the final.

The first division action has also reached its conclusion. A catch-up game that was rearranged between NWSCD and Backhanders had to be rearranged once more after it ending up clashing with one of the Cup finals and hence the venue was reversed to Cromer as a two man Backhanders team of Wilson and De Neve faced NWSCD’s Mary Sawyer, Joe Kirkup and Chris Johnson (playing up).Kirkup beat De Neve 12-10, 11-9, 10-12, 13-15, 11-4 and also took a set from Wilson. The remaining

games were won by the Cromer team in straight as Backhanders won the match 6-4. NWSCD finished the season in eighth place, seven points clear of the usual danger zone for relegation – however plans for a new three division format next season could bring different challenges. A strong performance from NWSCB with some impressive wins in the first half of the season sees them end in fifth place while NWSCA can add the runners-up spot to their two Cup wins. In the second division NWSCC and NWSCE finished fourth and seventh respectively.
