Each year we try to help each child to be part of a weekend of fun and laughter, each child will experience a weekend of memory making, experiencing activities that they may not have tried and forming bonds that can be lifelong.

This year the tour is not going far - to Scottow Park. The monies raised help subsidise all the children to be part of something special.

The fund raising challenge this year is for two teams of lady parents of mini players each to buy a car for less than £500, fettle it and then drive it from Norfolk to Inverness with a series of challenges on the way.

You opportunity to fund ferocious females is here crowdfunding/gayle-deary?utm_term=V7X6neMv2

All monies raised will go to the kids. Nothing to garages, breakdown vans or AA subs!!

When Autumn Leaves Begin to Fall …

It’s a glorious Autumn Thursday in Cromer, the leaves are turning red and gold and the crops are being harvested. Many of us are enjoying the sunshine as we go about our daily lives, including work, childcare, hobbies, eldercare and the myriad of other activities we get involved in. At some point in our day we give thought to what we’d like to eat for lunch, or tea, or supper and even breakfast the next day. It’s no big deal. We pop to the local shop or the supermarket, choose, pay for and enjoy our food.

Unfortunately, it’s not like that for all of us. Some of us do all the same activities until it comes to thinking about food and this is where the Foodbank with seven centres in North Norfolk steps in to help.

Picture the scene. Behind the doors of Cromer Methodist Church Hall, a group of people who are receiving short term help with providing food for themselves and their families gather at Cromer Foodbank to collect their groceries which are generously provided by those of us who recognise how tough living is when food is not readily available. And this scene happens in the other six Foodbank Centres across North Norfolk, each open one day every week.

Don’t imagine for one minute that you know what kind of people use the Foodbank. It would be so easy to stereotype. In fact, Foodbank clients are from all age groups, from the youngest to the oldest in our society. People from different backgrounds and with

different life and work experience. Some are families, some are alone, others come with a friend for support. Everyone is welcomed by members of the Foodbank Team. The intention is to give help through quiet and effective support at a time when people most need it and that intention is palpable. Food, advice, a helping hand, a listening ear, reassurance, a kind word, the opportunity to connect with others and a cuppa are all part of what this amazing organisation offers to its clients.

It is not easy to ask for help with providing food for your family and there is the sense of many contrasting human emotions – feelings of lack and hope for abundance, fear and increased courage, embarrassment and renewed confidence.

Be assured though that sad it is not. Cromer Foodbank and its other six centres in Holt, Sheringham, North Walsham, Stalham and the two in Aylsham, excel in making people feel welcome and that it’s ok to need and accept short term help when life is not going to plan. And there is a definite buzz about them all that confirms this.

The backbone of our organisation is our volunteers. Our Foodbank Centres are only as good as the people who choose to give their time and energy to us so that they can help their fellow citizens. Volunteers’ backgrounds and experience are varied and the professional and life skills they bring to us mean that we

We fit a wide range of brands to fit any budget.

In the words of one of the 120 people who currently volunteer to help us, “I have the greatest respect for people who are facing these challenges and I am not sure I would have been able to cope faced with any of the same situations. I cannot bear the thought of people, especially children, going hungry in 2019. That’s why I come here. However small my contribution, I know I am helping and that gives me back far more than I could ever imagine.”

North Walsham Times Issue 576 12th October 2019

Dum di dum di dum di dum... by Miranda Marshall, Director, Hayes + Storr trust and charity lawyers across the country are bristling at the lack of basic research by the writers and producers of the long-running radio soap (or rural docudrama) ‘the archers’. Perhaps we should get out more!

By way of background: June Spencer who plays Peggy Woolley, the matriarch of the eponymous family, and who has just celebrated her 100th birthday in real life, has been rewarded by a special plot line in which she stars. It has dramatically set some cats among the pigeons of the various Archer family strands, whilst satisfying the current zeitgeist of environmental awareness. All very apposite!

Originally, Peggy set up a ‘Family Charitable Trust’ with a sum of half a million pounds to be awarded to a farming family member with the best sustainable environmental idea. No actual action seemed to be a requirement. Her son Tony who has farmed organically for decades has taken umbrage (Ambridge?) and is boycotting it in protest against the jumpingon-the-fashionable-bandwagon brigade. All very jolly!

Now Peggy, following passionate lobbying by her socially-conscious cleaner Emma Grundy, has decided to open it up to the entire population of Ambridge, not just her family.

This is a wise Inheritance Tax-planning move,

as the Trust now stands a better chance of satisfying the fundamental Public Benefit Test necessary for to achieve charitable status. Perhaps the BBC did take legal advice, after all?

There is a long history of illustrious lawyers following The Archers. My tutor at university once told me she did her weekly ironing listening to the Sunday omnibus edition. A highly respected Chancery QC became passionate about this legal faux pas at a recent conference I attended and told me later that she knew the little that she did about rural life through the show.

Oddly, canny Peggy (iron fist in a velvet glove) took advice about setting up the trust from her Financial Adviser, a smooth operator in a Range Rover with blacked-out windows. Let’s hope that his professional indemnity insurance is up to scratch. There is history of The Archer members being ripped off by dodgy financial advisors and there seems every chance that could happen again.

Peggy has now announced that the advisor has found Trustees for her; when those most suited to the role are right in front of Peggy’s nose and already known to listeners. Escaped Ab Fab character, Peggy’s daughter Lilian, is to be the Trust Administrator, which promises some true slap-stick potential, darling!

The Archers has always been kind to its lawyers. They have been credited with decency and (not always legally-accurate) competence, as well as a rare and modern diversity. Both Usha Gupta, a solicitor married to the Ambridge vicar, and Anna Tregorran, a “high-flying barrister”, who successfully defended Helen Archer against a charge of attempted murder, when sensationally, she stabbed her coercive-controlling psychopath of a husband Rob Titchener come across as good women. This article aims to supply general information, but it is not intended to constitute advice. Every effort is made to ensure that the law referred to is correct at the date of publication and to avoid any statement which may mislead. However no duty of care is assumed to any person and no liability is accepted for any omission or inaccuracy. Always seek our specific advice.

Norfolk into Danger – and Back is the story of a girl who was born and grew up in the beautiful Norfolk countryside

Ellen had an idyllic but strict Christian upbringing. She became a children’s nanny on leaving school, and at 23 she met and married Keith, an RAF policeman, and moved to Pano Platres, in Cyprus, in the beautiful Troodos Mountains.

Some years later she moved with Keith to London’s King’s Cross, and the Salvation Army’s Faith House, where they worked with child runaways, street girls, and the homeless. In the course of their work they were often being beaten up and abused.

Eventually Ellen and Keith (now retired) moved back to Norfolk, where Ellen was blissfully happy. She and Keith and their miniature chihuahua, Charlie, continue to enjoy the fresh air and the big skies of North Norfolk.

Very sadly, Ellen passed away on Saturday, 17 August 2019, just before this book was published. However, it is the family’s expressed wish that it should be published in her memory. Keith lives in North Walsham

North East Norfolk Bird Club

Felbrigg Park Monthly Walk on 16 October 9am - 11am - this walk caters for all levels of ability. We will take a leisurely walk around the park & lake, route dependent on the local bird and other wildlife likely to be present on the day. Please wear clothing appropriate to the weather - footpaths in Felbrigg can be muddy at any time of the year. Meet at Sexton's Lodge car park, off Lion's Mouth, NR11 8PS at the western end of the estate. To keep the Club's carbon footprint small, please consider car sharing. As usual, children are welcome if accompanied by well-behaved adults, but we regret no dogs.

Let us help yyou… ou…

Horsey Walk for autumn migrants on 19 October 9am – 1.30pm - we plan to walk along the coast, with a loop inland to Horsey Mere and Brograve Mill, looking for autumn migrants and early winter visitors. Meet at the car-park at Horsey Gap (the car park for visiting the seal colony, TG463241, nearest postcode NR29 4EQ). To reach the car park leave the A149 coast road at the sharp right-hand (coming from the Happisburgh direction) bend at TG460236, and drive towards the coast along a track for a couple of hundred metres. In autumn the car park is usually unmanned and parking free. From the car-park we will head south-east by the coastal dunes, turn inland along the Nelson Head track and continue to Horsey Mill, where there are facilities. We will then walk around the edge of the mere to Brograve Mill, before looping back to the Horsey Gap car park. This is a longish walk (several miles), a short section of which is along the road, but it offers a nice range of habitats. This is a return visit to an area NENBC last visited in 2017, when we found a very creditable 55 species. As always with autumn, the potential birds depend very much on the prevailing winds and weather. A telescope is useful if you have one. This area is very exposed and can be bitterly cold in winter, so good footwear and clothing is a must. Children are welcome if accompanied by well-behaved adults, but we regret no dogs. To keep the Club's carbon footprint small, please consider car sharing. Leader Andy Clarke.

Taster days at Age Concern North Norfolk Day Services Hub

Age Concern North Norfolk is an over 55s Day Services Hub which is based in Sheringham, which runs Tuesday to Friday. The aim of this service is to bring together those in need of companionship, to build new relationships and to take part in activities that encourage mental well-being and stimulate thinking.

We provide shared interest which may include reminiscence, Carer’s support, personal care, bathing service, toileting, foot care, exercise, medication given, light entertainment, indoor/outdoor activities, computer/laptop sessions and sing-a-long.

For older people living on their own it is particularly important as it provides a safe and reliable source of social contact, thereby reducing the risk of isolation and exclusion. Around fifty percent of those who attend the Day Services Hub have disabilities including dementia, alzheimers and mental illness.

We are offering a free trial day, on either a Wednesday or a Thursday, 9am to 3pm, you’ll be getting a taste of the different activities we do, you’re more than welcome to take part as much or little as you like – whatever makes you feel comfortable.

We now have a tilting bath that has an opening side panel so customers can access the bath easily, with staff support if required. We have also extended the bathroom to allow for a seated shower.

We are seeing more customers who have issues with their mobility or who use a wheelchair, therefore we have also had an overhead track fitted to allow people who need to use a hoist, to have access to both the bath and the shower. This new facility has improved our customers experience of bathing, giving them more confidence and so a more pleasurable experience, resulting in an increase of 30% for our bathing service.

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Last time I mentioned the guidelines set out by Cats Protection regarding the size of pens we use for the cats in care. One of the reasons for this is to ensure the cats have enough space to express their natural behaviours. All our pens have a separate area for sleeping and sitting and another area which will contain space for the cats and kittens to eat, drink and play. Their litter trays are placed in a quiet corner away from their food and water bowls to ensure they have a certain amount of privacy for toileting. The guidelines also indicate that multi-cat enclosures where domestic cats are allowed to mix, do not meet the cats’ behavioural needs. They also state that feral cats should only be confined for a minimal time for neutering and minor health issues to be resolved and should never be in care for prolonged periods as it can cause the cats considerable mental distress. This is one of the reasons why we are happy to help with the cost of neutering feral colonies but cannot take them into care.

Another reason for keeping the cats separate is to make sure there is no risk of cross infection between the cats while in our care and the importance of this proved obvious when a recent stray came into our care. Octopussy had been taken to Westover Vets as he had been found wandering out in the countryside and with no owner claiming him, he was signed over to us. On arrival he was sneezing continuously so was placed in a pen which was not attached in any way to the other pens and had been given an antibiotic injection to try to clear the infection. As an entire male he would normally have been neutered once we were sure that he had not been reported as lost, but because of the sneezing he had two further antibiotic injections before the decision was made to go ahead with the operation and also to take swabs from his nose to identify what was causing the problem. The results of the swab indicated that he had a bacterial called, Bordetella (the cause of kennel cough in dogs) and a different antibiotic was then given. Bordetella is very infectious

and can be passed on quite easily, which vindicates Cats Protection policy for not mixing cats. Because he had been the last in the line for feeding and cleaning, the chances of the infection being passed to other cats had been limited and no other cat has been infected. Octopussy is one of the friendliest cats we have in care and very popular with all who have met him. When he Octopussy enjoyed his visit had his operation, he took over to the vets for his operation the surgery and received lots of cuddles from all the staff there. As he is now in good health, he is ready to find a new home. This will need to be as the only cat with someone willing and able to give him lots of attention as he is so affectionate.

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

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

We are now on Facebook. You can find us under Cats Protection North Walsham.

Hedgehog Haven

Following on from the last article both mothers have now been released back into the wild.


Their hoglets are now juveniles and independent and have all been separated some might even get up to release weight before the winter sets in.


Check their Hearts

Around 10-15% of dogs will develop heart disease at some point during their lifetime. Some heart conditions are present from birth but most will develop as a dog gets older.

As fast as they are released new ones arrive and all the huts are full.

One case is Stef who has been involved in some kind of accident. Her spines are laying flat& unfortunately she has a front foot injury which she is unable to walk on. She has an appointment at the vets tomorrow fingers crossed it’s not broken and she doesn't have to have an amputation. I will let you know how she gets on next time.

Our Wellness Clinics are designed as screening checks to identify problems early, or to try and prevent them occurring.



They are available for all patients over the age of 8 years who are not obviously unwell at the time.

GP Surgeries open their doors North Walsham and District Probus Club to offer the flu vaccination

North Walsham and District Probus Club were pleased to welcome Rev Janet Stuart as a guest to their September meeting. Janet spoke about her experiences as a Hospital Chaplain and how the role has changed over time.

GP surgeries across Norfolk and Waveney are gearing up to provide special clinics to offer patients their annual flu jab.

Children aged between 2 and 10 years old will be offered the nasal spray vaccination. The adult flu vaccine is offered free to those in groups at particular risk of infection and complications from flu.

When she first started the Chaplain would be allocated a ward in which every patient, who wished to do so, could talk to the visiting Chaplain. It was soon very obvious who would welcome a visit, some patients would feign sleep, others would be totally engrossed in a book but there were always some who would welcome a friendly face and someone to talk to.

the groups being offered the adult flu vaccine are: • Pregnant women • those aged 65 or over • those aged under 65 with long-term conditions • Carers

Janet moved on to Lowestoft hospital where her first visit was something of a trial, she went into a room of very elderly patients the first of whom had had a stroke and wanted to be left alone, the second patient turned out to be deaf and angrily pushed away the writing pad bearing a written greeting and so it went on. She finally spotted two ladies sitting together in one corner, one of whom was sound asleep but the other was alert and looked friendly so Janet went over and struck up a conversation. As she was leaving she asked how long the lady had been there only to be told, ‘Oh, I’m not a resident I’m 80 and come to visit my mother who is 101’!

GPs are asking their patients to book a place in forthcoming flu clinics as soon as they are advertised. Alternatively, you can visit your nearest participating pharmacy.

GP surgeries are also testing atrial fibrillation in patients over the age of 65. Although flu vaccinations are available from other outlets it is only GP surgeries who are offering the additional check for abnormal heart rates at the same time.

If offered a visit from the Chaplain some patients immediately assume that their condition is worsening and they may be near the end of their lives, which is often not the case at all, but others appreciate the opportunity to have someone with the time to listen to their worries or concerns. The Chaplain has the time, listening skills and understanding to be able to bring people hope and dignity at a difficult time in their lives.

In addition to the atrial fibrillation and flu vaccination applicable patients are able to receive Pneumococcal vaccines protecting patients against the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae. The vaccine can prevent some cases of pneumonia, meningitis, and sepsis. A pneumococcal infection can affect anyone. However, some people are at higher risk of serious illness and can be given the pneumococcal vaccination on the NHS.

Our speaker next month is Charles Lewis who will talk about ‘Norfolk in the Stage Coach Age’. If you would be interested in joining our dual membership club you can be assured of a warm welcome. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 10am in the Jubilee Room at North Walsham Community Centre. For more information please contact Albie or Ann Herd on 01692 402705.

Dr Anoop Dhesi, Chair of North Norfolk CCG and Partner at Stalham Staithe GP Surgery said: “Flu can be incredibly unpleasant for many people but for a select few it can be fatal. The best way for people to protect themselves and loved ones around them is to get the vaccination on offer especially those offered it for free on the NHS.”

New Life Cleaning Ltd

Dr Louise Smith, Director of Public Health said: “If you have a bad cold or the flu, you are best to manage your illness from home, without seeing a doctor or visiting a hospital. You shouldn’t need to see your GP unless the symptoms become particularly severe, last far longer than usual or if you have a long-term health condition. If you think you might be suffering from flu and are concerned that your symptoms are worsening you can call NHS 111 for advice.”

Serving the Community with New Life


Gutter Clearance

A previous pilot programme showed vaccinating children had dual benefit; as well as protecting them from flu, it also protects others, such as parents, grandparents and siblings, as children are ‘super spreaders’ and are much more likely to infect others.

If you are not amongst the eligible categories to receive a flu vaccination free of charge on the NHS, please consider visiting a local pharmacy for the vaccine in order to protect yourself and your family this winter.

North Norfolk District Council celebrates successful completion of sandscaping project - Innovative solution to protect North Norfolk coastline completed North Norfolk District Council, together with its project partners, has marked the completion of the Bacton to Walcott Sandscaping Scheme, that has been several years in development, at a celebratory event held in Bacton and Walcott.

The UK-first, multi-partner project and internationally significant undertaking has been designed to protect the local communities of Bacton and Walcott and critical infrastructure at the Bacton Gas Terminal site from the North Sea; the bold new approach is expected to offer 15-20 years of protection from coastal erosion and the effects of climate change to this stretch of North Norfolk’s coastline.

‘Sandscaping’, the most visually striking element of the Scheme, saw approximately 1.8million cubic metres of sand placed and engineered on Bacton and Walcott beaches creating significantly wider beaches and

sand onto the beaches during the summer after taking it from licensed dredging areas.

much-improved access.

School children from Bacton Primary School joined guests, including Ms. Brechje Schwachöfer, Deputy Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, to celebrate at Walcott beach where they built sandcastles on the newly expanded beach and a sand artist recreated Ham 318. The vessel became a familiar site off the North Norfolk coast as it pumped

Calling all Former Service personnel and their Families

North Norfolk District Council’s Chairman, Cllr. Clive Stockton, led celebrations for the local community later in the day, cutting a ribbon and declaring the new beaches at Walcott and Bacton officially open.

Stately Homes

When visiting a stately home, sometimes the grand tableau, Makes me think about people who lived there long ago. At its peak it’s likely they had gardeners galore, For labour was so cheap back then, before the First World War. Staff slept in barns and attics, working for a paltry sum, Hours were long, and time off was a prize that was hard won. The chambermaids would lay the fires, clean and air the rooms. Horses would be cared for by the stable boys and grooms. The butler and the household staff worked very hard each day, To make sure meals were all on time, or there’d be hell to pay. Now owners must diversify to keep cash rolling in, They have to open up their homes - much to their chagrin! A lot has changed since those days, many years ago, For some it was a gracious age - for others, much less so! Frances Wraight

The sand placement has substantially increased the height and width of the beaches, and the waves and tides will help distribute the sand along this part of the coast. This natural defence will protect the coast from erosion and reduce risk of flooding. In addition to keeping the neighbouring communities safe, the scheme re-creates the dry beaches that the area used to have, while also potentially creating new habitats to enhance biodiversity.

Firms sentenced to ÂŁ108,257 following health and safety breach Sentencing follows successful prosecution of Woodland Caravan Site and Foley and Baugh Associates

Woodland Caravan Site has been ordered to pay fines, costs and a victim surcharge totalling ÂŁ103,120 and Foley and Baugh Associates has been ordered to pay a total of ÂŁ5137 after a swimmer was pulled unconscious from a swimming pool at the site in Trimingham in March 2017. Both firms pleaded guilty to failing to discharge their general health, safety and welfare duty at a hearing at Norwich Magistrates Court in March 2019 and were sentenced by District Judge Woollard at Chelmsford Magistrates Court on Friday 20 September 2019.

Woodlands Caravan Site (Trimingham) Ltd, the company which operated and managed the pool, was charged with breach of the duty it owed to do so in such a way as to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, that swimmers there were not

exposed to the risks of drowning between 12 March 2015 and 1 April 2017.

Alan Baugh, a safety consultant from Great Yarmouth, trading as Foley and Baugh Associates, provided health and safety consultancy and advice services to Woodlands Caravan Site (Trimingham) Ltd. He was charged with breach of the duty he owed to do so in such a way as to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, that swimmers at the pool were not exposed to the risks of drowning between 1 December 2015 and 1 April 2017. Both charges were breaches of duties under section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, contrary to section 33(1)(a) of that Act.

North Norfolk District Council prosecuted following an investigation into the incident where a swimmer got into difficulty and was under the water for more than five minutes before being rescued by other swimmers. The swimmer was hospitalised and has since made a good recovery.


Cllr. Sarah BĂźtikofer, Leader of North Norfolk District Council, said “I hope that this outcome demonstrates the importance of all businesses in ensuring the health and safety of their customers, especially in swimming pools where the risks are well known and the need for effective supervision is absolutely necessary. If businesses are using safety consultants they must ensure that they are receiving an adequate and suitable service from them, otherwise they may both face action if problems arise, as in this case.

“This prosecution should serve as a clear indication of how seriously North Norfolk District Council treats incidents where standards have not been met and that court action was the only option in this serious case. The outcome for the swimmer could have been very different had it not been for the commendable actions of the members of the public in the pool at the time, and those with responsibility for the health and safety for others need to be absolutely clear of what the consequences are if they do not comply with legislation.� Free guidance on the management and operation of swimming pools is available on the Health and Safety Executive website.


The night is not the Ending of the day, It is tomorrow sleeping, Storing up energy to Light the sun. We hardly notice the The sound of day waking, The click of darkness Turning on the light.

The birds do, And begin to sing, And for miles around Alarm clocks ring. Chris Hargest

Everything looks brighter now A stiff breeze rattles the rigging And flags stand out horizontal The sky is blue but there is little warmth Springtime has arrived

The beach is alive with laughing children And the sea temps the unwary in to swim Yachts are sailing from the harbour Their white sails catching the limited breeze Summer has arrived

Some darkly pigmented moles or changing, enlarging ones can indicate a need to see your GP or a dermatologist to exclude melanoma.

Here we discuss some common types of lumps and bumps and treatment options.

Seborrhoic warts and skin tags are very common minor skin lesions which usually do not produce symptoms or turn nasty. These are very easy to remove very successfully with barely noticeable scarring.


01603 736487


Raised flesh coloured moles- these are again very common and usually do not indicate any significant problem. Most remain unchanged for many years. It is best to get them checked if there are any changes or concerns. These can be removed almost instantly with shave excision or vaporised with the laser.


a hospital setting may be required.

Broken veins/ birthmarks- most of these can be faded with the help of lasers and no surgery is normally required. A few sessions may be needed.

Pigmented moles- are a little bit tricky to remove as we remove these with a margin of surrounding skin and this means the resultant scar is usually much longer than the original mole. We also recommend these be sent for pathological examination. Routine examination of removed tissue is best practice here.

Rhinophyma or bulbous nose due to rosaces- this can be very successfully removed with the help of lasers. We may need to use 2-3 lasers and 3-5 sessions may be required. Results are very gratifying.

Skin cysts- these can be removed through a very small hole in the overlying skin. We now treat most small and longstanding cysts with the help of lasers.

Warts- a variety of treatments are available and lasers are one option to cut off the blood supply so warts shrink and disappear. These can also be vaporised with CO2 laser.

Lipoma-or fatty lumps can be removed through a very small cut in the skin.

Skin cancers-these are treated as a matter of urgency and treatment is available on the NHS. Laser therapy is not standard of care for skin cancers and we do not recommend it.

Xanthelasma-these are small whitish fatty deposits around the eyes. Most of these can be very successfully removed under local anaesthesia. If these are very large, especially on lower eyelids then removal in

‘Manners Maketh the Dog’ Imagine that you are playing in the local park with your two year old child, everything is fine, your little one is having a great time, playing safely and happily. Suddenly and out of nowhere, an older child, apparently alone, no parent in sight, appears, bowls over your toddler and takes away their precious toy? Or worse, an older child appears and starts to manhandle your child in a way that is simply not acceptable? It is unimaginable that anyone could consider this behaviour to be alright and yet, inexplicably, it is the sort of thing that unsupervised dogs are allowed to do all of the time. Sadly it’s a problem that seems to be on the rise. The lone dog or just the oblivious owner are so often now responsible for a recognisable decline in manners in dog walking and in dog etiquette. In my fifty years as a dog owner, my twenty years as a professional dog trainer I believe that we have hit a new low in doggy manners but, as ever, it is the owners and not the dogs that are responsible and yet it is a problem that is so avoidable. To exemplify what I mean, here is a case in point: Out walking our elderly, blind and deaf, Cocker Spaniel, only last week, we encountered a Husky and a Labrador fresh from revelling in a muddy, woodland pond. To describe them as boisterous would be an understatement, both dogs, both lovely animals, bounded up to us knocking our poor old boy to the ground then jumped up on my husband covering him in mud and pond water. It only took a sharp sit from me to bring them under control and we all patiently waited together for their owner to appear. A full three minutes later, around a corner, ear phones in, oblivious to the world and her dogs, a lady appeared. Against the

fully audible rhythms of her music I tried to explain what had happened and suggested that it was less than acceptable to allow her dogs to run free out of hearing, sight and mind. At first she didn’t even remove her ear phones, only when I requested that she remove them did she, somewhat grudgingly, haul them from her ears. Any hopes I held for an apology were very quickly dashed as she simply shrugged her shoulders and walked away, her dogs still on the loose. In fairness this incident was not the dogs fault. It was very apparent that they had neither been trained nor socialised but even more worryingly she clearly failed to understand the need for either. For her it was sufficient to shut out the world, retreat into her audio dimension and leave her dogs to do anything that they wanted.

This is not an isolated incident, we are all familiar the cry of ‘he’s friendly he only wants to play’ however, fun is not an excuse for inappropriate behaviour. The outcome in this circumstance was a frightened elderly Cocker, an amount of unforeseen laundry and some serious indignation but it could have been much worse: What if a fight between the dogs had resulted? What if a dog had been hurt or a person bitten? What if ‘dog rage’ had ensued? Dogs learn manners from socialisation just as our children do. A critical element of this is feedback to the dog or indeed the small child and the reinforcement of good behaviour. If your child misbehaves, you will soon let him or her know that is not good to continue in the same vein as there may be possible consequences to their

actions, consequences like the naughty step or removal of games privileges. Strangely, for some obscure reason, dog owners often miss or misunderstand this important point.

Here is an actual example: I often go for breakfast to a café that allows dogs. Last time I was there the people in the table next to me clearly struggled with a small, very noisy, dog that barked continuously. Each time the dog barked the owner reached down, stroked the dog and said ‘good girl‘ and in doing so, through ignorance, reinforced the bad behaviour ‘you bark I say good girl’. They certainly didn’t mean this outcome but regrettably they knew no better and so the dog continued to bark and everyone in the café struggled to enjoy their breakfast. One of the very first and one of the most crucial things we teach in puppy classes is how to give feedback to your dog. They need to know when you are pleased and equally when you are displeased. It’s not rocket science but this simple understanding can make a world of difference to how your dog behaves throughout its life, how it is perceived by others and it can make the owners life a whole lot easier too! ‘Manners taketh the dog.’ It is instilling those manners which is the owner’s and trainer’s responsibility.

International Photographer of the Year exhibition returns to Sheringham Park The International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition, the world's premier photography exhibition specialising in garden, plant, flower and botanical images, returns to the National Trust’s Sheringham Park this autumn.

Located in the tranquil surroundings of the Bower Garden, over 40 pictures are on display celebrating gardens and plants from across the globe. The Upcher family who owned Sheringham Park were enthusiastic plant collectors. Henry Morris Upcher was one of the sponsors of plant hunter Ernest Wilson who brought many specimens back from China in the early 20th century. The international nature

of the exhibition therefore does sit well within the garden setting at Sheringham, which features plants from at least five continents.

Norfolk photographer Richard Bloom’s winning image of ‘Bressingham Gardens in Autumn’ in the ‘Beautiful Gardens’ category is on display, alongside wonderful landscape photographs from the ‘Breathing Spaces’ category, which is sponsored by the National Trust.

The overall winner this year was Jill Welham, who drew on a technique of yesteryear known as cyanotype where two chemicals are mixed together to produce an extraordinary exposure

Norfolk Vikings

Norfolk Viking’s were in action at the end of last month when they took a team of twelve swimmers, 10 girls and two boys to Dereham for the Iceni Meet.

The swimmers competed in 51 individual races, in which they achieved 34 personal best times, also coming away with 5 golds 3 silvers 3 bronze over the weekend.

This was a very good achievement giving very good race preparation for the Norfolk County championships in January.

The competition was another chance to achieve Norfolk county qualifying times, which were achieved. Also taking into account the times of the competition at the beginning of the month coach Sam Watts said she was pleased with the improvements all swimmers made.

She added “We have areas to work on and improve for the next competitions for the coming months - let’s keep up the good work. Well done to all those for taking part and special thanks to the team managers and parents.
