Christmas Lights Switch On

North Walsham Christmas Lights Switch On takes place on Saturday 30 November with the switch on being performed at 6pm by the Funday's Carnival Queen Chloe Kidd.

There will be stalls, rides and food and drink available in the town centre from 2.30pm and entertainment from 2pm all the way through to the switch on.

This year's entertainment includes NWHS choir, band Uncreative Love, Invidia Choir and the Salvation Army leading the carol singing before the switch on.

Father Christmas will be riding down the town on his sleigh before making his way to his grotto.

Chairman of the Christmas lights group, Colin Jeary, said “It takes a year’s worth of planning to organise the event and six Sunday mornings to erect all the lights before the switch on.

Christmas Lights Switch On

Continued from front cover... We are very lucky to have recruited several new volunteers this year which has meant the lights have gone up quicker. Each year around 250 volunteer hours is spent on the town’s lights, to make sure the town shines over the Christmas period. The lights are only possible by the generosity of the traders in the town who donate and the volunteers who ensure the lights are erected and working by the switch on”.

Serving the North Norfolk community since 1990

Colin added that it makes it all worthwhile when just before the switch on all you can see is a sea of people who have turned out to support the event “It’s a great feeling”. Photos: Andrea Hudson Photography

Cromer Hospital receives £1m from Norfolk farmer’s legacy

The generosity of a Norfolk farmer is set to improve health services in North Norfolk after Cromer Hospital received one of its biggest ever donations.

The family of Douglas de Bootman have presented a cheque of more than £1m to the N&N Hospitals Charity after the retired farmer left the proceeds of his estate to Cromer Hospital in his will. Mr de Bootman spent his life farming at Pentney, near Swaffham, before retiring and buying Church Farm in Thursford with his wife Janet.

“He was very active in his retirement up until three or four weeks before he died. He had quite a lot of land and used to get up early in the mornings and spent his time taking care of the grounds: cutting the grass, pruning the trees, chopping wood, etc. He was very skilled at carpentry, welding, and agricultural engineering. He loved being outside with his Labrador and in his retirement took up painting, which it seems he had a natural skill.” “He was such a quiet, sensitive gentleman. He and Janet enjoyed a few holidays in Scotland. My uncle liked a quiet life, in Thursford he had a few elderly neighbours who he liked to help and vice versa.

Cancer manager Matt Keeling, Sister in Law Pat De Bootman, Niece Karen Ballard and Matron Anita Martins

create a state-of-the-art cancer care and support centre, which will increase chemotherapy and treatment space at Cromer Hospital.

Louise Cook, Head of Fundraising for the N&N Hospitals Charity, said: “We are overwhelmed by this incredibly generous donation, which will make a significant difference to thousands of patients in North Norfolk.

After Janet died of cancer Douglas de Bootman “We are happy that the money is “Mr de Bootman’s legacy will undoubtedly in 2010, Mr de Bootman going to the new cancer unit at help improve the facilities and services at the continued to live in ThursCromer Hospital as cancer affects so many hospital and will be felt by patients, staff and ford and spent much of his time looking after visitors for many years to come.” the grounds of his farm and discovered his love people in many ways.” of painting.

At the end of the performance, the coach is waiting to bring us home. We are a friendly group of 40 to 50 people enjoying a regular relaxing evening in good company. The exact cost depends on the number booking for the coach, but usually works out at £70 - £80 (about £13 a time). This includes the cost of the seat, the coach and the driver's tip.

Next season, starting in January, includes an adaptation of ‘Wuthering Heights’, ‘Les Liaisons Dangereuses’, an Agatha Christie and Arnold Wesker's ‘Chips with Everything’ - in all, a very attractive programme.

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Bassanio, the little cat mentioned last time is still on antibiotics and, although his new family can see some progress, more will be known when he goes back to see the vet next week. We will keep you posted of his progress.

The cats in care with Irene will shortly be moving to their new accommodation. While waiting for the new pens to be installed, the cats have been in the old pens which will in future be used for storage of food, bedding, cat litter etc. There has been a minor hiccup preventing the move as, due to the bad weather at the time they were being installed, water got in causing a drip and this needs to dry out before they take up residence. Irene can’t wait for this to happen as, at present, the goods which will be stored in the old pens are taking up room in her home and garage.

We were also delighted to be contacted by a family who will be joining the branch and taking over the pens at present with Marian, our lady in Briston, who although giving up caring for the cats for health reasons, will still be involved with other aspects of the work that we do. Work on the base for the pens will start next week and, once this is down and the tiles for the base have been laid, we will arrange for the pens to be transferred to their new base. In the meantime, the cats in residence at Briston will need to be moved, either to other pens, as and when they become free, or to our friend who runs a cattery and is always only too happy to help us out for holiday cover and emergencies.

Although the weather was good for the sale on the 9th we think takings will be down, hopefully not because someone removed our posters. At the time of writing the money still has to be counted. However, there is very good news on fund raising as the stall at High Hedges has taken an amazing £741.89 this year and this is despite some people taking goods and not paying for them. Many thanks to Sharon for all the hard work


she does looking after the stall. We do rely on people being honest when buying goods there so must assume the thieves are not animal lovers. A recent Side view of the two new pens at Irene's collection at Morrisons in Cromer raised a further £210 for the cats in care. We would like to thank Barbara for organising the collection and her helpers for manning the buckets.

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.

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

Hedgehog Haven

Little Lucky was found on 9 November wandering down Hall Lane in North Walsham in the middle of the day. She could so easily have been run over. At 170 gms she was very cold and had to be gently warmed before being offered food. She was very poorly but is doing ok at the moment.

Hopefully you and your pets have eased into Autumn and the colder weather isn’t causing too many problems. Firework season seems to drag on for longer every year, so if you experienced any noise phobia issues with your cats or dogs then it is worth popping in to speak to your local vet practice to ascertain if there is anything more you can do before they ramp up again around Christmas.

For some reason this autumn we have been busier than ever with a huge number of emergencies coming through the door. In particular, dietary indiscretion emergencies, or more simply put, pets eating things they shouldn’t!

Along with a host of foreign body obstructions, which in the last two weeks alone have included dog toys, pine-cones, stones and bedding material, we had a very serious case of mycotoxin or fungus poisoning. I’m sure many of you have noticed, but the wet, mild weather we have had recently has led to a huge amount of fungus and mushroom growth. Dogs can be prone to sampling most of nature’s treats on a walk and one

such Labrador ate a highly toxic fungus. He was sick almost immediately before collapsing and being rushed straight into the practice. Blood tests demonstrated acute pancreatitis and he was hospitalised for supportive treatment with intra venous fluids and medication.

Unfortunately, only hours later his house mate went out into the garden and ate the vomit from earlier, which still contained enough of the toxin to cause the same reaction. He too was rushed in and also had developed acute pancreatitis.

Thanks to the quick action of their owners both dogs survived, but it highlights the need to be vigilant with our dogs in terms of what they have access to and particularly on walks.

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army North Walsham were pleased to recently welcome 13 new Adherent members into its midst, most of whom are new in the last two or three years. Some joined through lunch club, others through coffee morning, and some through the community band. An Adherent member is someone who sees the Army as its church, attends the meetings etc while not making quite the same commitment as a uniformed Salvationist.

'We are a growing church' says Major Richard

Dancing the Tango – It Takes Two

‘Shall we dance now?’ she said, As she swivelled her head And glanced with a meaningful eye. I stood and waited With breath abated And said ‘I feel anxious and shy!’ I sought to retreat, Then admitted defeat When the first note struck up from the band She leant hard on my arm, Then bedazzled by charm My fingers locked tight in her hand. My ability grew, Helped by the steps that she knew, But felt loose when the rhythm took hold. She drew near without haste I encircled her waist And remembered the tips I’d been told. We advanced with precision, Each turn a decision, In sequence we traversed the floor. Her compassionate air And professional flair, Were the like I had not seen before. With our legs intertwined, She arched back and reclined. I stood firm. She recovered her poise, Then with tantalised bliss, Half enticing a kiss, We pressed on to the Tango led noise. With a quickening pace, And a chance to lose face, I surveyed the dance floor ahead. Then with opening gaps, We covered more laps, As in between couples we sped. Her sensual scent Filled my head with intend. We were synchronised now as a pair. With her frame tightly toned, And her routine well honed, Self-possessed, I was dancing on air. With a flourishing hand, And a gesture so grand, Perspiration was starting to bead. Concentration required, Left me thrilled and inspired By a longing to surely succeed. To spin and return Is the first thing you learn, But I’d never danced Latin like this. Past instructors I’ve had Were quite slow, but not bad, But this girl was one special Miss! We shared tension and fun Once the dance had begun, Now the music had found the last bar. I was flushed in the face, She showed laudable grace, I said ‘Thank you, I’ve danced with a Star!’ David Brooks

Christmas stalls over the next few weeks at its Thursday coffee mornings. There will be bargain Christmas gifts plus the opportunity to purchase a surprise gift for just £1 in a 'buy a tin and see what's in' stall.

Mental Health Awareness

The growing movement of Mental Health awareness has captivated the UK with employers and HR professionals championing the importance of having a good work life balance. Extra working hours, low wages and a need to increase earning capacity means that the balance of work and life can fall out of sync. As a result, the mental health of those employees is put in jeopardy.

what signs can Hr look out for in employees who may need help? People with unhealthy work life balances may feel unhappy about being at and devoting time to work. If your employees/colleagues are showing signs of lack of motivation at work, distracted behaviour or seem unhappy at work, these may be signs that they need some help. Similarly, those who seem to worry about work at home, those who are not developing personally outside of work or seem to be neglecting other aspects of their lives in favour of work, could be struggling with an unhealthy work life balance.

what can be done to help those with unhealthy work life balances? Head of Employment Law Nicola Strefford explains "Nurturing employees is the best way to ensure you are getting the best out of your workforce. Incorrect work life balance can affect productivity, absence figures and turnover for businesses so it's extremely important that employees are encouraged to have a correct work life balance and feel taken care of. We always advise clients to deal with issues

sensitively as heavy intervention from employers can negatively impact on an employee's mental health, causing problems to often get worse, not better."

ways in which employers can help promote healthy work life balances, according to the Mental Health Foundation are: • Have policies in place which deal with stress at work and procedures which nurture all employees, especially those who may have mental health issues; • Promote an open-door policy across your business. Employees should feel able to speak to supervisors about time constraints and work load issues, without fear of being criticised or disciplined; • Assisting employees to utilise their time at work to ensure they aren't working longer hours in order to meet targets or work demands; • Provide training on work life balance to all staff; • Encourage activities which promote good mental health. Encouraging all staff to get fresh air on breaks; lunchtime exercise or relaxation classes. (The list above has been extracted from the Mental Health Foundation website)

One of the main goals of promoting a work life balance for employers is assisting employees to utilise their time at work effectively. Employers should provide training on prioritising work tasks; structuring time at work and planning the working day; taking adequate breaks during the work day; making use of annual leave entitlements and using time at home to have



a break from work. Trainee Solicitor Natalie Smith comments "Broaching this subject with employees can be a sensitive issue so getting advice from the outset is the best way to approach any problem. We encourage all clients to contact us as soon as a potential issue arises, so we can offer support and training whilst also avoiding a situation spiralling unnecessarily."

Our specialist employment law team provide expert advice to both employers and employees on a full range of employment matters. If you need any help or guidance on offering training to employees or you feel there is an unhealthy culture of work life balance in your business, contact our specialist employment team on 01603 693500, email Enquiries@clapham-collinge.co.uk or visit www.clapham-collinge.co.uk.

How Time Flies

Halloween has come and gone, As has November the fifth. Now we are heading for Christmas, ‘Twill be here toute de suite and forthwith. With presents to buy, cards we must write, And family meals to prepare, It feels as if there’s no time to ourselves, We should be doing something elsewhere! The passage of time is so speedy, Though sometimes we wish it would stop. This year has flown by like a whirlwind, I feel like a child’s spinning top. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, All fly by like bats after dark. We rush through our lives without seeing That each year always leaves its own mark. Are there others out there in the cosmos? Other worlds with people like us? If so, are they ready for Christmas? Do they have all this stress and fuss? Frances Wraight

North Walsham Table Tennis Wins for Walsham

In the First Division, North Walsham Echoes John Chapman, Frank Weston and Irving Watson hosted Aylsham Norada's John Hall, Sally Homfray-Davies and Tom Mountain. Chapman got off to a flying start as he took the first set against Hall 11-3, but the Norada captain hit back to win in four. Two wins in four followed for the hosts as Weston beat Homfray-Davies in a close battle of few mistakes where both players controlled play before Watson edged Mountain 14-12, 12-10, 5-11, 12-10. Weston then won a close cat and mouse battle against Hall 11-8, 11-5, 11-13, 12-14, 11-3. The remaining six battles were all straight-sets affairs – Mountain took a brace and joined forces with Hall for a doubles win against Weston and Watson, but the hosts won the rest of the singles with Watson taking a maximum as Echoes won the overall match 6-4. On the adjoining table, Foxtrot's David Binns, Jim Crossley and Tom Wardle hosted LCC Crab's Hayden Kerr and the Chris's Francis and Gould. Gould recovered from two down against Wardle, only to be edged out 13-11 in the decider but the Crab went on to take a brace with two wins in four. After losing the first 15-13 to Wardle, Kerr held his nerve to win in four. Each of the hosting trio took a brace and Binns and Wardle won the doubles from two down against Kerr and Gould to conclude Foxtrot's 7-3 win. The following week Wardle picked up a brace as Foxtrots were beaten 8-2 in their next match by LCC Lobsters.

At the ACT Centre. Aylsham Enterprise's Danny Atkins, Andy Latham and Harley Dyson hosted North Walsham Cobra's Robert Gabriel, Mark Blackburn and Phil Stone in the Premier Division. Atkins took his third match-point to beat Stone 12-10 in the third (and to take bragging rights in the office!!) and his forehand stayed on fire as he defeated Gabriel 11-8, 11-6, 3-11, 11-9 and then completed his maximum with a tight 11-9, 15-17, 12-10, 11-13, 11-7 win against Blackburn, who had earlier beaten Latham in four. Dyson picked up a single against Stone in four while Gabriel took a brace including a 20-18, 11-7, 11-6 win against Latham. Stone and Blackburn won in five against Latham and Dyson respectively, having being pegged back from two up in both cases. The doubles saw Atkins and Latham beat Blackburn and Stone in straight to end the night as a draw. On the adjoining table, Aylsham Hathor's Ray Gale, Peter Ward and Rob Ollman hosted North Walsham Beta's Colin Smith, debutant Paul Edwards and John Vaughan with captain Richard Porritt joining in the doubles. Vaughan picked up a maximum as steady and consistent play saw two victories in four and an 11-6, 15-13, 11-9 win against Ollman. Gale and Ollman both took braces including a 15-13, 6-11, 7-11, 11-8, 11-9 win for Ollman against Smith but with wins for Smith and Edwards against Ward in three and four respectively, the doubles became vital. This was an incredible battle with players getting balls back that were out of this world and

It's been a memorable season so far for the Vikings. After nine games they were unbeaten, eight points clear in London One North on 44 points. Colchester were second and Southend third, four points further behind.

Maintaining their form is going to be difficult: opponents raise their game against leading sides, their playing style is better suited to the drier conditions of early and late season and the squad is very small.

If you are new to Fit Together, please arrive 20 mins early. For more information contact Eileen Harriott on 07851774396. Monday 25 November -10:30am - North Walsham Library Walk – Grade 2 – Approx 2¾miles. A Weavers Way/Town walk with concrete, dirt and grass paths and no gradients. Meet outside the N.W. Library, (Parking charges apply), New Road, North Walsham NR28 9DE. Wednesday 27 November - 1:30pm - North

In the Second Division, Seaflames Swordfish's David Houlton and the Graham's Masters and Moorhouse hosted North Walsham Delta's Gudi Scham, Tony Bispham and John Harris with Scham winning the opener in four against Houlton. Bispham beat Masters in five before Moorhouse's crafty backhand beat Harris in straight. Masters recovered from two down to beat Scham before Harris focused hard and managed to return several smashes as he beat Houlton in four. Bispham then recovered from two down against Moorhouse, winning a key fourth set 13-11 and the decider 11-7. Masters won an entertaining game in three against Harris, before excellent play from Scham beat Moorhouse in five. Bispham was in control against Houlton as he completed his maximum and secured the win for Delta. The two Graham's won the doubles against Scham and Bispham in the fifth battle of the night to go to five but Delta took the match 6-4.

Meanwhile the Minis (pictured) are enjoying themselves. One of their Values is 'we are here to have fun, involve everyone.' "It's what the Minis are about," commented Minis Chair Emmett Young. Ex-Premiership player Joe Beardshaw is amongst their Coaches and they recently enjoyed a training session led by Vikings players Jake Duffield, Frank Scott and Will Swart. There has been plenty of action too for the male Youth teams with the Norfolk Cup now underway. The Under 15s Girls beat Kettering in the National Cup with Peterborough their next opponents, whilst the whole squad attended the first of this season's Eastern Counties Girls Rugby Festivals.

October included two key games. After beating then third placed Eton Manor 45-19, they visited Colchester and came away with an impressive 31 -26 victory. The last match before filing this report was though agonisingly close, defeating mid table Sudbury 13 -7. "We just didn't turn up" said Head of Rugby Johnny Marsters.

North Walsham Fit Together Walks

saw Smith and Porritt prevail 1513 in the decider against Gale and Ollman to win the match 6-4. Elsewhere in the Division, Howard Lupton returned to help Alpha to two wins – 9-1 against Sharks and 10-0 against Aylsham Hathor. In their next matches, Beta and Cobras were beaten 9-1 and 6-4 by Aylsham Enterprise and Sharks respectively.
