The wide range of help includes giving ‘one-off’ practical assistance around the house and garden, transport to get to medical appointments, befriending visits and help with filling in forms. They also ‘signpost’ callers to other, more appropriate, services.

The Mayor, Gary Bull, was thanked for attending the event and local people who have benefited from the scheme expressed their appreciation for the help they had received. A raffle was held which raised £100 to help meet the scheme’s running costs.

All our vehicles are sold with full 12 months MOT, 3 months warranty, serviced & valeted.

Market stall with a difference – we were collecting not selling!

Rotarians in North Walsham are working with local charity The Benjamin Foundation to support young people, moving from sheltered accommodation, to set up their own homes for independent living.

Thursday 11 October was the day it rained mugs and cutlery on market day in North Walsham, as local people responded to a ‘call to arms’ by the Rotary Club by bringing mugs and cutlery to the Rotary Stall.

“The response was gob-smacking" says organiser Patricia Williams. In the space of just three hours nearly 200 mugs and a substantial quantity of cutlery including 'canteens' were handed over.

“Thank you so very much” she said, “your donated mug, knife, fork or spoon shows North Walsham is a community that cares for its own, and will make a big difference to the work of the Foundation.”

She was amused to recount that during the time the stall was open a number of people came up to buy items, thinking they were for sale. This gave an opportunity to explain the project and talk about the work that Rotary Club and The Benjamin Foundation were doing.

The Club is currently involved in a number of local projects, including the Boudicca Cancer Appeal which aims to support the creation of a new specialist cancer unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

The Club’s annual Race Night held at the Community Centre in February will raise funds for this worthwhile cause.

Seeing is Believing

I thought I’d have to wait awhile for marvels to appear But no, within an instant they were there. Dancing round and waving, a mighty multitude Enough for everyone, and then to spare.

I simply hadn’t seen them for what they really are Nor noticed how they glinted, gleamed and shone. All the normal boring ‘stuff ’ which makes our day to day The things we never miss … until they’re gone.

The seasons and the sunshine, the moon and stars, the rain, The comfort in a nice hot cup of tea. Sights and sounds and colours, a phone call from a friend It’s all in the perceiving … they are miracles to me.

Medieval Marriage

by Miranda Marshall, Director, Hayes + Storr

‘The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there’; so said L P Hartley as the opening lines of his novel ‘The Go-Between’.

I recently heard a presentation which included a run-through of English marriage and divorce laws through the ages. It amused me; and thought it might amuse you. It is truly alien territory.

In the early 7th century, under the code of Ethelbert, the legal penalty, if a man ‘took a maiden by force’, was that he had to pay her guardian (not her) 50 shillings (i.e. £2.50 in decimal money), and afterwards he could buy from the guardian his consent to marry her. Presumably the former-maiden’s value would have been much diminished and it would have been an easy solution for the men. The cost of consent would be 20 shillings (£1) if she was betrothed to another man. We do not know the cost if she wasn’t betrothed. There was a 35 shilling (£1.75) refund if the woman was ‘returned’.

The Welsh laws of the same era stated that the grounds for divorce were leprosy, impotence and bad breath (only one of the three was necessary). There was recognition too of the

Salvation Army

‘seven year itch’. On divorce after seven years the money in the marriage was split equally. Before the 7 years the division depended on the woman’s status by birth (regardless of the actual size of the common pool of matrimonial property). This presumably meant it was financially risky for a man to marry a posh but poor young woman – much better for him to find a rich but vulgar girl!

Before the arrival of the Normans, if a woman found her husband with another woman, she was entitled to payment of six score pence (about 46p, I calculate) the first time; £1 the second time; and, on the third time she was entitled to divorce him. If a husband kept a concubine, his wife was allowed to punch her.

After the Norman invasion things got worse.

Under the French invaders, a wife became a ‘sort of infant’ and her legal identity ceased to exist. A husband and wife on marriage became one person and the wife’s property was surrendered to the husband. This included her clothes; and so, the husband would usually give his wife her clothes by his Will; otherwise, presumably, if he died, she would quite literally walk away naked.

Many of Jane Austen’s novels turn on the importance of marriage to save the family fortunes.

The Salvation Army are pleased to welcome again world famous singer/song writer Marilyn Baker accompanied by Tracey Williamson.

Marilyn is totally blind, and Tracey is totally deaf and 'yet they overcome these difficulties to have a ministry of music and other ways of sharing the gospel which has inspired countless thousands around the UK and indeed in other parts of the world' says Major Richard Durrant of the North Walsham Corps.

Land and real property passed down the male blood-line, so that a widow and daughters would be left destitute without a living male protector. This explains Mrs Bennet’s desperation to hunt down husbands for her five daughters in ‘Pride and Prejudice’. True love didn’t come into it.

And so the matrimonial property dark ages continued until the Victorians introduced the Married Women’s Property Acts. There were four of these from 1870 to 1907 and the final one, shockingly, was as late as 1964. Women became legal entities in their own right, could keep their earnings and own property.

Revised Plans for Holt Railway Station

Back in 2015 a group was established at the request of the Board to examine how the Holt site should be developed to complete the original vision of a country goods yard first planned way back in 2004.

The design was presented to the Feb 2017 Members’ Forum at The Links and was well received; however, the price tag was expected to be in the region of £3m or so including all the surrounding street works. Back then there was a realistic prospect of obtaining a majority grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund given its museum and educational purpose. However, all that changed in 2018 when the HLF changed their policy on grants and ceased to make large sums available. This led the Board to reappraise what we can do and at the meeting in September they approved a ‘bronze’ scheme for Holt rather than the original ‘gold’ scheme.

So, what exactly is ‘bronze’? It is a scheme that delivers virtually the same output for visitors as the original big scheme but not inside a large B&Q style shed, so it can be built incrementally as funds are available. The original scheme would have required a significant lump of cash even to erect the

basic building as there are many competing demands on the railway’s finances!

The first part will be arrival of Reedham Jn signal box in late February. This is still subject to confirming planning permission with NNDC, but we aren’t expecting any push back as discussions first took place 2 years ago (but we must never assume anything until we have it writing!). The top half will arrive, be repaired and then be erected onto a new concrete foundation. Eventually it will become a “have a go” simulator where visitors can try their hand at signalling. This will then be joined by a range of other buildings and we are scouring the county for abandoned pw huts that we could dismantle and move to Holt and re-erect next to the box. So, over a period of time the yard area will be filled by a range of buildings that allows us to demonstrate all the aspects of railway working. There will need to be a new buffet building and replacement for the institute and the railway cottage will move down from the gate. (This in turn will eventually allow the buffer stops of the headshunt to be pushed back towards to road to give us a longer platform 2).Regrettably this has meant that we have not been able to renew the model engineer’s lease that falls due in January and they have to find a new home.

turntable and the goods shed.

And finally, the turntable – the Board took the decision to decline the offer from another railway to buy it and are looking at installation in the corner of the field behind the water tower subject to a land agreement. This is very much work in progress but is at least moving ahead at last.

We are also planning to build a superior children’s play area in 2020 between the

NOVEL AND ENGAGING LOCAL THEATRE

Am-dram is as Am-dram does, we know what to expect, or do we? Just occasionally you walk into a gem of a production that you couldn't have anticipated, certainly not from the venue anyway.

'Streets' was four plays based on the four verses of Ralph McTell's 'Streets of London', written, produced and performed by the members of the Walsham Drama and Singing group. The subject matter was downbeat, obviously. You can't put on four plays about loneliness, homelessness, sadness and remorse without confronting the subjects head on. And that's what they did. Cleverly interweaving some humorous elements that could have come across as glib in the hands of people less skilled.

AMAZING MYSTERIES Thu 14 Nov - Sat 16 Nov

Yes there were the odd timing issues, yes there was the occasional fluffed line but we are in a church hall and these people are not only putting on this very compelling and thought provoking show but they've also written it themselves. The result – a very well-acted, directed and produced collection of work that really needed a bigger audience. The fact that all those concerned had put in a staggering amount of work for a 'one night show' really exhibits their determination and professionalism. If you didn't see it, well you missed out. If you did then you'll know just what I'm talking about.

Well done to everyone involved in this novel and engaging piece of local theatre. An enjoyable and thought provoking show that rewarded all those willing to brave a cold October night in the name of amateur dramatics.

A Superstar Patient!

Meet Lily! This gorgeous girl is a regular visitor to Toll Barn Vets as she suffers from the relatively rare Addison’s disease and requires regular check ups.

It was at one of these regular appointments when her owner mentioned that Lily’s abdomen appeared more swollen than normal. Our veterinary surgeon examined Lily and confirmed that her abdomen had become full of fluid. This can happen for a number of reasons including heart disease, infection, liver disease and tumours and so the decision was made to admit Lily to our hospital so we could fully investigate the cause of the fluid accumulation.

Luckily for Lily the Toll Barn Vets on-site facilities meant she could relax in our hospital whilst we performed blood tests in our inhouse Laboratory, and ultrasound

scans of her heart and abdomen in our diagnostic imaging suite. These tests ruled out many of the causes of fluid accumulation but were unable to diagnose the problem. Our team then performed a CT scan using our state-of-the-art on-site CT Scanner and this revealed that poor Lily was suffering from a liver lobe torsion – a disease where one of the liver lobes twists around itself cutting off the blood flow to the affected liver lobe. Knowing this can be a lifethreatening emergency, the Toll Barn Vets team performed life-saving surgery that same evening to remove the affected live lobe

and prevent further tissue necrosis (tissue death) and toxin release.

Patients suffering from live lobe torsions are at high risk of blood clotting disorders, toxin release and changes to blood pressure and heart rhythm (arrhythmias) and the Toll Barn Vets dedicated nursing team used specialist monitoring equipment throughout her surgery and recovery. Lily has been a superstar patient and thanks to the swift actions of her owner and our team has beaten all the odds and made a full recovery. Always remember that as an owner you know your pet better than anyone and even a small change could be a sign of a significant problem, so if in any doubt contact your vet to discuss your concerns and hopefully keep your pet fit and healthy.

Toll Barn Vets Raise Record Amount for Macmillan

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Among the recent departures from our care was a young cat called Olga. Although she arrived at 6 weeks old, the ideal age for kittens from outside situations to come into care, she had taken a long time to adjust and to learn to trust us. When her new owners contacted us offering to give her a home, we explained that she was still very timid with strangers and although we knew that she would be happy in a home eventually, it would take time and patience for this to happen. Fortunately, they were prepared to let her take all the time she needed to adjust even before they went to see her. Asked for advice as to the best way to introduce her to their home her carer suggested that when Olga arrived, they should confine her to one room with her litter tray, food and water and gradually introduce her to the rest of the house. Unfortunately, the door to the room was left open by mistake so Olga was able to get into the other rooms and went into hiding. Although it took a little time for them to locate her, her new family were not concerned by this set back and just moved everything into the room in which she was hiding. Having set up cameras in their home they knew that she was coming out as soon as they went to bed, to eat and use her litter tray. They were even aware that she visited their bedroom during the night. Within a very short time we received good news in the form of a video of this dear little cat, sitting on a chair, looking around her new home and also doing a spot of grooming. Although still not a lap cat she will now climb over her new owners’ laps and also sleeps under their bed. Her new family are very happy with their new companion and we are very pleased that they were patient and let her decide when she was ready to trust them. One very good result and one happy little cat.

one was discovered on the other side of his tongue when he went for his second vaccination and although he received treatment to resolve the problem, it has not improved. Biopsies have been taken and investigations are ongoing by Toby at Westover. We are keeping in touch with Bassanio’s new family Peggy, one of the older kittens at present in and are hoping that the care results of the latest tests will identify the problem and the treatment needed to resolve it.

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 www.northwalsham.cats.org.uk 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.

Hedgehog Haven

Another recent departure from our care, a little cat we called Bassanio, has had health problems since leaving us. He was one of the kittens that came in with cat flu and then had an ulcer appear on his tongue while in care. This had cleared up before he left us but, unfortunately, another

On Monday 14 October baby hoglet Thimble arrived at only 20 gms, less than 2 weeks old with eyes still closed. I had to start by syringe feeding him approximately every two to three hours.

Now, two weeks on, his eyes are open and his teeth are coming through so he now has one feed in the morning and one at night. It is much too late for hoglets being born so he is a very lucky hoglet to be found.

Exciting news! Charlies Helpline for Hedgehogs has been set up. If you find a hedgehog in trouble or want advice about one, you can ring 07835 498970 and your nearest carer will be contacted, so please make a note of this number.

Romans Invade Mundesley Library

Well, not quite. but the audience at the latest talk hosted by Mundesley Library Friends (MLF) were entertained and informed by Peter Purdy and Sheila Denny from the Aylsham Roman Project.

Peter, who owns the land where the dig takes place, explained that the Roman Project was a misnomer as artefacts had been unearthed from as early as 5000 BC and as late as the Middle Ages.

To date the project has discovered 29000 objects, each of which has been catalogued to record its exact position on the site. As part of the presentation, Peter and Sheila brought a selection of items, such as Roman pottery and roof tiles, found on the site.

Many eminent experts, from both the UK and overseas, have assisted the project over the

explained the context of various finds enabling his audience to appreciate how each artefact related to life in past times. It came as no surprise to know that the dig is cited as one of the most effective examples of a Community Archaeological Project.

years and a number of notable discoveries have been made - most notably a rare coin, one of only 15 known examples.

Peter also explained how modern technology, such as extremely high tech and sensitive metal detection equipment and the use of GPS, are used to aid detection throughout the project.

MLF are planning a further series of talks starting in January and continuing throughout 2020. Details will be Photo: Paul Damen finalised shortly and will be found on the Mundesley Library and Mundesley Parish Council websites as well All who attended were impressed by Peter's on Mundesley Facebook sites with posters dedication and knowledge and by the way he at various locations around the village. Work on the site takes place for three weeks each August and is undertaken by around 80 volunteers. There still remains a significant unexplored area of the site so work will continue for many years yet.

The Outcome of 4by6 Secret Postcard Auction

Between 18 and 20 October Thorpe Market Church held a successful fundraising exhibition and auction of postcard-sized original artwork, donated by professional and amateur artists from across Norfolk and beyond.

A number of valuable artworks were donated including a handful of work by budding artists from Happisburgh School.

With thanks to the generosity of all the artists submitting, we raised a total amount of ÂŁ1125.80 towards the cost of new exhibition facilities for the church. A fantastic achievement! We would also like to thank the many volunteers who helped hang the exhibition, bake cakes and invigilate over the three days. Much fun was had by all those who took part, bidding on multiple items or outbidding each other for firm favourites.

DeaDLine For subMissions will be 31 January 2020.

If you missed out the first time this is your chance to showcase your works of art and have them purchased by collectors. The funds raised will benefit all local artists wishing to use the exhibition facilities at the church.

Up to three postcards can be posted to Katayoun Dowlatshahi, Coach House Barn, North Walsham Road, Northrepps, Norfolk, NR27 9LF. Please ensure your full name is on the BACK of the postcard with your contact details. For further information please email katayounpd@gmail.com

Stage Coaches at Probus

At October’s meeting of the North Walsham and District Probus Club our illusions about stage coaches with horses galloping through the snow, as they do on our Christmas cards, were well and truly shattered. Our speaker Mr Charles Lewis informed us that in fact travel was uncomfortable, slow and potentially dangerous.

In the late 17th and early 18th century roads were rather random affairs for which the local parish was expected to take responsibility, animals were driven along the tracks, pedestrians and horse riders made their way as best they could and the wagon and coach drivers would pick their way around the ruts and stray rocks increasing the width of the track as they went. So, in fact, the roads were just very wide muddy slippery tracks.

century, steam travel arrived. The first steam train, taking passengers from Norwich to Yarmouth, opened in 1845 and the last Mail Coach from Norwich to London was on the 6th January 1846.

Please don’t let this information spoil your enjoyment of this year’s Christmas cards!

If you would be interested in joining our friendly Probus Club please come along to the Jubilee Room at North Walsham Community Centre on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 10 am or contact Albie or Ann on 01692 402705.

FOG

I hear the waves which break upon the shore The gulls emit their loud and raucous cry But they are not visible on this November day As the mist rolls in, soaking all, masking sea and sky

In an effort to improve matters wealthy land owners who had an interest in a particular stretch of road were give permission to establish turnpikes, the road was gated and users had to pay a fee or toll in order to use it. In return the land owners were required to keep their stretch of road in good condition which made coach travel more comfortable. Coaching Inns were set approximately ten miles apart and at each of these stages there would be a change of horses. Fresh horses and better roads meant that coach travel was much improved and the golden age of coach travel began. Passengers were able to buy tickets in advance and the coaches would follow a timetable so that connections could be made to different locations.

The wind blown trees on the sandstone hills Have diamond sparkling cobwebs decorated by the mist A foghorn sounds from a passing ship at sea And the remaining flowers in gardens appear dew kissed What silence this ethereal world transmits to all A silence which we always need to stop our hectic slide Man needs a rest from all our earthly noise And find silence in the solitude that God alone provides

Paul Scrivener

Sims Foot Clinic

The Post Office also took advantage of the new road network, building a fleet of Mail Coaches, which not only carried mail accompanied by a guard but also passengers.

Stage coach travel was not without its dangers, the wheels were narrow and a deep rut or rock could overturn a coach particularly if it was top heavy with luggage and poorer passengers perched on the roof. Startled horses and stormy weather could also make the journey a perilous experience.

Nick adds Dame role to directing for milestone panto Panto dame Sarah the Cook has a three-course role at a Norfolk seaside theatre as it marks a special milestone. Sheringham Little Theatre has been staging its own in-house professional pantos for a decade.

And to celebrate, Nick Earnshaw, the man who has directed five of them, is putting on his frock and make-up in a return to the stage as the dame - as well as being director and writer – for the ‘Dick Whittington and His Cat’ show from 7th December to 1st January.

Nick Earnshaw who is dame, director and writer of Sheringham’s next panto Dick Whittington outside the Little Theatre

Nick was ugly sister Pearl in Cinderella back in 2009 and has since made Sheringham his second home with regular involvement in the venue’s panto and summer seasons, as actor and director.

“I am really excited and it’s a dream come true to be dame here,� said the 37-year-old

Nick Earnshaw as dame Sara the Cook is tempted by the scones while getting some lessons from Little Theatre kitchen manager Pam Long

self-confessed panto addict who has previously played the Sarah role at Sheffield. “As a child I obsessed with panto. I used to love watching them, but also taping Top of the Pops tunes and working out how to work them into a panto show,� he explained.

“When I was at drama school agents would be surprised when they were trying to get me Shakespeare roles, and I was asking about pantos.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “Nick has been a popular and key member of the summer and panto teams so having him play the dame this year seemed a great way of marking our 10th anniversary. It should be great fun.�

Tickets for ‘Dick Whittington and His Cat’ are on sale now!

Joie de Vivre

Me Joy de Viver’s punctured! I seem to have lost me spark. ‘Course it doesn’t help I’m old and grey And time has left its mark! Me J de V’s deflated, All joy and fun has gone, It doesn’t help ‘Arfritus’ Makes each movement seem hard won! When your Joy de Vee is flattened, It’s hard to raise a smile, Life throws so many punches That you wonder what’s worthwhile. But if I stop to think about The good things, not the strife, Then me J de V gets back to rights, And I gets on with me life!

Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic looks after all you skin care needs, from protection, prevention to repair and more.

Now is the best time to start your skin care programme and do some treatments to reverse summer related skin changes. Our emphasis is to provide the full range of services for protection, prevention and restoration of skin health. We are proud to offer all these services under one roof. We have a full range of dermatological laserstwenty-three in total and these can work wonders for your skin.

How can we maintain optimal skin health? Skin is our bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first line of defense against the elements such as sun, wind, heat, smoking and pollution etc. On top of all these assaults our intrinsic or genetic ageing does not help. Whilst we cannot stop the ageing process, we can reset the clock back with the help of our treatments.

what is the Coltishall Clinic pyramid approach to skin health maintenance and restoration? This is summarized below:

                  

01603 736487

                      

In a nutshell you start at the base and progress up the pyramid if and when required. Of course if you have already had some sun damage, acne scarring or skin sagging and/or volume loss you can add higher-level treatments at the start.

what about changes below the skin? Research shows that age related changes are not just confined to our skin. We need to replace lost volume by use of dermal fillers or fat. These provide beautiful and natural results with none to minimal recovery time or risks. We can now take fat from body areas where we dislike it and inject it where we would prefer to have it. We can now carry out liposuction and fat transfer treatments under pure local anaesthesia.

what if i feel i have very advanced changes and need something more drastic? We do offer surgical options such as eyelid surgery, face and neck lifts, liposuction, and modified tummy tucks etc.

A Very Special Supper

In our culture of excess, we could be forgiven for thinking that more is more; in fact, it is very much the case that smaller portions, and better quality, are far better for health long term. The habit of indulging in the ‘buy one get one free’ trap is not a blessing. Fish is not the cheapest ingredient to purchase, but just like meat we should be considering where we buy it, and not just how much can we get. I get my fish from fishmongers locally with good reputations for the best and freshest fish for 2 reasons; I like the personal interaction you get on the High Street, and I like to support local independent businesses. Our buying choices are powerful, and we should use them responsibly if we want to retain our wonderfully diverse High Street. We are blessed in Holt with 2 fresh fishmongers that I definitely don’t want to lose! This is a meal we have once in a while as a special treat. It’s not going to break the bank, but is certainly more than the average weekly meal. Incidentally, fish cooked this way is literally one of the easiest and quickest meals to do; no slaving over a hot stove for hours! It’s also a really impressive meal, with delicate flavours, fresh ingredients and great presentation, and great special occasion or dinner party dish. The trick is not to overcook. Trust the timing, and all will be well! This is also a guilt free way to enjoy chips, counting as one of your 5 a day, with all the indulgence of fries and none of the worry. Push the boat out and serve with a beautiful crisp white wine – my favourite at the moment is Adnams White Burgundy, one of their bestsellers.

is cooked, heat the pan and add in the fish skin side down. Time it, and cook for 4 minutes, then add in a knob of butter and squeeze in the lemon juice, and carefully flip the fish over. Almost immediately turn off the heat, and leave it for 1 minute, then flip back and serve, spooning over a little of the juice onto the fish.

Toss all the celeriac and potato fries in olive oil, lemon pepper and salt, coating them well. Put into preheated hot oven (around 190°) for about 30 – 40 mins, checking that they don’t catch and turning halfway through. Meanwhile, steam your broccoli towards the end of the chips cooking – it will need about 10 mins maximum. Prepare your large frying pan for cooking the fish, by swirling a splash of olive oil in the bottom, and adding a handful of chopped dill and some lemon pepper. Once everything else

North Walsham Table Tennis Triple the Doubles

The attention turned to the second round of the Knockout Doubles Cup with three of the ties taking place on the same night at North Walsham Sports Centre as Alpha's Andy Beane, Tom Baldock-Yaxley and Richard Westgate hosted Poacher's David Foster, Chris Fuller and Laura Marsh. Beane and Westgate won the opener 11-6, 12-10, 5-11, 12-10 against Foster and Marsh before Baldock-Yaxley and Westgate made it 2-0 to the hosts with a win in five against Fuller and Marsh. Poachers fought back to take the next three battles with a win in five for Foster and Marsh against Baldock-Yaxley and Westgate sandwiched between two wins in four. Straight sets victories were then shared between the two teams before Foster and Marsh sealed Poacher's 5-3 win in five against Beane and Baldock-Yaxley. Over on the other side of the gym, Cobra's Mark Blackburn and Robert and Marceli Gabriel hosted Mundesley A's Paul Price, Simon Halliday and Peter Betts. There was a big momentum shift in the opener as the Gabriel's fought back from two down and had a lead in the decider, before Price and Betts hit back to take the fifth 14-12. Blackburn and Marceli Gabriel had a chance to take the first before Halliday and Betts won in straight and the night of missed chances for the hosts continued as Blackburn and Marceli Gabriel had a match-point chance but were edged out 15-13 in the decider by Price and Halliday.

Mundesley moved 4-0 up with a win in four before the Gabriel's beat Price and Halliday in straight. Blackburn and Robert Gabriel had four match-point chances in the sixth battle – two at 10-8 in the decider – which again passed by as Halliday and Betts won another epic 14-12 in the fifth to complete a 5-1 win for Mundesley A – as often the case, the score not a fair reflection of the closeness of the tie. The middle table saw Delta's Sarah Tudhope, Tony Bispham and John Harris host Crosscourt's Rod Goffin, John Welsh and Keith Beswick. Crosscourts won 8-1 in a mixture of three and four sets with Tudhope and Bispham taking a point for Delta in four against Welsh and Beswick and later Tudhope hitting the shot of the week with an outstandingly fast forehand!

In the Premier Division Alpha's Andy Beane, Tom Baldock-Yaxley and Richard Westgate hosted Aylsham Enterprise's Danny Atkins, Harley Dyson and Andy Latham with Atkins taking the opener 15-13, 12-10, 11-9 against Beane. Latham edged Westgate 12-14, 11-9, 11-6, 15-13, however Alpha won the remaining battles to take the match 8-2. This included a maximum for BaldockYaxley who was pushed closest by Latham – the Alpha player winning 11-6, 16-14, 9-11, 11-4. The final three battles saw home victories all in five sets – Westgate beating Atkins after originally leading by two, Beane recovering from two down against Dyson and a doubles win for Baldock-Yaxley and Westgate against Dyson and

Latham. In the First Division LCC Crab's Chris Gould, Chris Francis and Neil Edwards hosted Echoes' John Chapman, Frank Weston and Irving Watson. The hosts went 2-0 up with wins in straight for Gould and Francis against Chapman and Weston respectively and Gould later also beat Weston in three, however the visitors won the match 7-3. This included a maximum for Watson who edged Gould 14-12 in the third and all their wins were decided in straight sets with the exception of two as Weston beat Edwards in four and Chapman and Watson won the doubles against Gould and Francis also in four. Mundesley B's Ben Thomson, John Stacey and Silva hosted Foxtrot's Tom Wardle, David Binns and Phil Mole. Foxtrots won 10-0 but this also three five-setters as Wardle and Binns won the doubles against Thomson and Silva while Mole hit back from losing both of his first two sets against Silva 13-11 and later edged Stacey 14-12 in the decider. Finally in the Second Division Aylsham Albion's Peter Forder, Ken Seaman and Nigel Arnold hosted Delta's Gudi Scham, Sarah Tudhope and John Harris. Delta won 9-1 including an intense 9-11, 11-8, 11-13, 11-7, 12-10 win for Tudhope against Seaman. Forder picked up the point for the hosts from two down against Harris.

Ground-breaking ceremony for new Sheringham Leisure Centre Significant milestone as building work begins

pod’, a type of swimming pool lift, will be available for safe and dignified entry into the swimming pool, offering greater independence for people with a wide range of mobility difficulties.

The ground has officially been broken to mark the beginning of construction work to build a multi-million-pound leisure centre in Sheringham, expected to be completed in summer 2021.

A moving floor on the smaller pool will allow the water depth to be changed for different activities and user groups such as swimming lessons, water confidence and toddler sessions and aqua fit exercise classes. A colourful splash pad and learner pool for children to enjoy and where they can improve their confidence in the water has also been included in the design, and a range of portable, fun equipment such as inflatables will be offered during timetabled sessions.

North Norfolk District Councillors joined staff from Metnor Construction and Everyone Active to celebrate the major milestone in the development that will see the existing 31-year old ‘Splash’ replaced with a state of the art facility with lots of new features.

The new centre will include a six-lane, 25-metre pool, a 13-metre learner pool with an adjustable depth floor, fitness suite, community rooms, multipurpose studios, a spin studio and a café. The design has been progressed with the facility’s accessibility in mind and incorporates eleven dedicated accessible car parking spaces close to the building entrance, level access into the building through the main reception, automatic entry doors within the lobby area and accessible changing rooms.

The project, which supports North Norfolk District Council’s commitment to improving the health and well-being of its residents, will ensure the provision of leisure and fitness facilities for local communities and visitors to north Norfolk is secured for the future. Splash will remain open while the new leisure centre is built on a different part of the site. The new leisure centre is due to open for summer 2021. Working with partners including Sport England, the Council is seeking to increase participation in sport which will contribute to an improvement in social and cultural benefits. The social and fitness spaces will help put the facility at the heart of the community.

On the ground floor, a dedicated ‘Changing Places’ facility will be provided which offers more space than standard accessible changing spaces and equipment including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist. A ‘pool
