North Walsham Street Feast North Walsham’s first Street Feast took place on Saturday 30th April.

Organised by North Walsham Town Council, the event saw 12 food stalls set up around the Market Place in Saturday’s bright sun. Both the Council and the traders were amazed to see the level of support, with over 2000 people attending through the day. Most stalls had to be replenished several times to meet the demand. As well as the food, there was also live music throughout the day. Penney Spall, chair of the Council’s Markets Committee was delighted at how well the event was received and said that there will be another Street Feast on 2nd July.

Richard was responsible for the amazing model of Ship Yard which is on display at The Heritage Centre on Vicarage Street.

Garden benches are a tonic for hospital patients and staff

A Note from the editor

The Platinum Jubilee weekend is almost upon us, the Queen is the first British monarch to have reigned for 70 years, quite an achievement! Most of us get to give up work and enjoy a leisurely retirement. There are lots of celebrations happening to mark this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Patients and staff can relax in the garden at North Walsham hospital thanks to new furniture provided by its Friends group.

A selection of picnic tables and benches have been bought and installed in the grounds, mounted on new paved bases in a £10,000 scheme, which also involved extended pathways funded by the Friends. It means patients can sit and enjoy the patio and garden behind the wards, either on their own or with visitors. Staff, who have been working long shifts in full protective equipment to deal with Covid patients, can also spend their breaks outdoors to grab some much-needed fresh air.

Do look in the forthcoming events for something near you.

If you prefer to mark the occasion in a quieter fashion and do something to benefit the environment, why not ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’? This is the Queen’s Green Canopy tree planting initiative to create a legacy to benefit people, wildlife and the environment for the future.

Friends’ chairman Keith Jarvis said: “We are delighted to have provided the furniture and have had very positive feedback from staff about how much it is appreciated by them and patients. As with all our work, the project was paid for using money donated by the public – so we would also like to thank everyone who has supported us.”

You can get a free ‘tree pack’ by going online at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk

You can even register your tree on the QGC map and if you are planting as a school or community group, you can have a free tree delivered during the planting season this year.

Whatever you are up to over the Jubilee weekend, bunting at the ready! Enjoy your May magazine.

Jo – Editor.

The Friends, who provide extras to Friends committee members and staff trying improve patient and staff welfare at the War out one of the new picnic benches Memorial Hospital, Photo: Richard Batson have also recently bought radios for the wards, shaving mirrors for patients and are planning other projects ranging from an overnight room for visitors, and some special recliner chairs, to a coffee and tea kitty for staff.

May 2022


“No Fault” Divorce is now happening From 6 April 2022 the most radical reform of divorce law for decades came into operation.

Previously a divorce could only be based upon “fault” with a husband or wife blaming the other for the breakdown of their marriage. That has now changed and is no longer required.

The new law includes significant changes in terminology that Solicitors and clients will need to come to terms with. More fundamentally however is the potential for a divorce to take place on a joint application and ending the possibility of someone seeking to defend the divorce.

There is now a minimum period of 20 weeks from the commencement of the divorce to the application for a Conditional Order (previously Decree Nisi).

This is to enable a cooling off period and time for reflection whether it is actually referred to that or not in the legislation. It remains to be seen whether reflection will take place because the vast majority of people starting a divorce will have come to the conclusion that they wanted a divorce before the proceedings were started rather than mid-point. There then remains the same six-week period between

Wanted

the Conditional Order (Decree Nisi) and Final Order (Decree Absolute) as previously.

A minimum period of 26 weeks now applies to a divorce. This is about the length of time that a divorce was taking place under the old legislation although with all these timescales it is subject to potential difficulties with the digital format and procedure that the Court now has.

There is also the potential for a Respondent to try to delay a divorce by not acknowledging receipt of the application but the opportunities to delay or try to stop a divorce are much more limited under the new rules and procedure.

Overall, the aim is to try to ensure that the divorce itself can take place more amicably. The position remains that in most cases it is rare for a husband and a wife both to want a divorce and it is often only one party that is seeking this whereas the other might be reluctant or not want the divorce at all.

What the new rules do however is to prevent a spouse from defending the divorce and so it is hoped that animosity is prevented over the actual divorce itself. It does not change the situation regarding disputed arrangements for children or financial matters which still have to be dealt with although if the divorce itself is dealt with more amicably the hope is that ancillary aspects are not going to be soured

right from the outset by allegations made in the actual divorce.

If you are considering starting a divorce application or are already in the process of making one, our family department here at Clapham & Collinge are here to provide you with advice and support for any queries you may have regarding the new legislation.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural “North Norfolk Open Studios” we will again be holding exhibitions of local artists’ work with the opportunity to meet over 130 artists in their studios and to purchase original works without gallery commission fees.

This year the event will run from Saturday 28th May through to Sunday 5th June, covering half term holidays and Jubilee Celebration Bank Holidays. Most studios will be open from 10am to 4pm daily but please check the website to confirm individual studio arrangements before travelling: northnorfolkstudios.co.uk Leaflets and maps available locally and online.

A local trail has been set up including artists from the Holt, High Kelling, Hunworth and Briston area with three artists new to NNOS this year alongside five who have exhibited before:

Caroline Houchell [45 Pineheath Road, High Kelling NR25 6RH] is both a printer and mixed-media artist. Caroline produces collages, monoprints and cyanotypes influenced by natural elements and changing seasons, exploring a sense of space. She also runs workshops on

Inspired by the beauty of Norfolk, Terrie Clifft [1 Castle Close, Holt, NR25 6FB] enjoys creating unique decorative and functional fused art glass. Her original handmade kiln-fired glass items range from seascapes and landscapes, to penguins, robins and pheasants… not forgetting beautiful Murano glass pendants!

Her husband Ian Clifft [1 Castle Close, Holt, NR25 6FB] is an experienced and talented woodworker who produces a range of freestanding and wall-hung clocks made from reclaimed solid oak with inserts of other timbers or stone. Ian also makes attractive and sturdy lamp bases from oak which are fully fitted with brass bulb and shade holders, a long flex and a plug – ready to ‘plug and play’!

Chris White [The Bungalow, Old Cromer Road, High Kelling NR25 6AJ] is an established local artisan who has run glass workshops for many years. His fused and stained glass works are inspired by nature. He also produces pieces of art work suitable for enhancing your garden all year round. His work is whimsical, functional and decorative.

cards will also be available to purchase… or book a tuition slot!

Tricia Arnold’s [54 Pineheath Road, High Kelling NR25 6RH] artwork is “all about colour, texture and fun!” Tricia’s paintings are mixed media and she particularly enjoys using vivid colour in vibrant acrylics and inks. Tricia will have a range of original works, prints and cards for sale.

Richard Woodfield [22Avenue Road, High Kelling NR25 6RD] is a fine art illustrator who produces incredibly detailed renditions of landscapes and buildings, both local and further afield, using fine liner pens to render the necessary tones and textures. Richard also produces works in gouache and pastels.

Lizzy Harvey [[9 Mill Road, Briston NR24 2JF] is a mixed media artist who produces abstract and semi-abstract work based on nature and the landscape. Lizzy uses inks, watercolours and pastels for her drawings, also experimenting in monoprints and textiles.

It is only 6.3 miles between the studios at Briston and High Kelling, and will provide you with a wonderful opportunity to meet, chat with and support local artists, purchase an original artwork as a gift for yourself or a friend, and to explore the beauty of wonderful North Norfolk!

Well-known local artist Emma Blount [Hunworth Village Hall, Kings Street NR24 2EQ] works both as an illustrator and with glass. She will be holding a stained glass and glass painting demonstration on Friday 3rd June at 11 a.m. Drawings The Sheringham & District of lions, prints and Branch of the Royal Air Forces Association was formed in 1950 and today has a Membership of 87, but regretfully we are a generation of the past, only seven of our members are under the age of 65 and staggeringly our average age is 85. Not being put off by this we hold regular social events, which attract an average of well over 30 members, plus guests who are always welcome!

We are Recruiting!

Not every ex-military service person receives a pension, State Pensions are not keeping pace with inflation and medical services are becoming more difficult to access. RAFA, if possible, will assist in accessing support services and if necessary, provide assistance, no ex-RAF service person or their family should be disadvantaged.

The long-term concern is about the likely future of the Branch, which would now seem to have few long-term prospects unless new, younger members can be recruited. We need your support - now!

Running Wild!

Nettle and Pea Soup

They say the best things in life are free... which is just as well given how expensive everything else is suddenly becoming. If you’re feeling the pinch financially, one easy way to save some money is with your food shopping. I find that making a meal list for the week (I know, it’s another chore, but so worth it) saves me from falling into the temptation traps set for us by the evil geniuses behind supermarket marketing.

A little olive oil 1 large white onion, finely chopped 1 large jacket potato or a good handful of new potatoes, skin on and chopped into chunks A couple of sticks of celery, chopped 20 to 30 heads of nettle, leaves stripped from the stalk and well washed Vegetable stock Half a small pack of frozen peas, defrosted 4 to 5 sprigs fresh mint, chopped Tsp miso paste, mixed with a little warm water (optional)

Given how important feeding yourself is, and how much we enjoy it, is it really too hard to give yourself half an hour to decide just what you fancy eating for the next week? The other outrageously easy win is to eat wild food. Instead of looking at nettles like the enemy, encourage them in your garden and consider them a crop!

Gently fry the onion and celery in a little oil over a medium heat for 5minutes, and then add in the chopped potato. Add the nettles and stir until wilting down, and then the stock to cover

They are so tasty and good for you, and really easy to incorporate into your recipes, as below. They also make a gorgeous tea, when paired with other herbs or even fruit.

the vegetables, plus a little more. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes and add the peas and mint. Simmer for a further 5 minutes until the peas are tender, then blitz with a hand blender until smooth. Stir through the miso paste to finish and check the seasoning.

During the war years, people picked and dried wild blackberry leaves to use as a tea substitute, and of course the blackberry is prized among hedgerow fruit in the Autumn... and it’s free!

AND ST STORAGE ORAGE LTD LTD : 01692 016 500 501

At the moment, you can easily pick Garlic Mustard which can be cooked or eaten raw as a salad, Wild Garlic, which can be gently wilted or again eaten raw in salad, and my favourite at the moment is Cleavers, otherwise known as Sticky Willy, a rampant weed that is incredibly good for you, and can be cooked into soup or brewed into tea.

Save money by getting creative with the wild harvest available to us, and base meals around deals on potatoes, vegetables, pasta and rice. Use more dried beans and pulses in your recipes to bulk them out, such as lentils in bolognaise or chilli and beans in soups and try to bulk buy staples such as tinned tomatoes, frozen vegetables, oatmeal and pasta.

Make your own flat breads and garlic bread with strong wholemeal or white flour, and buy sundried tomatoes and roasted peppers in oil, making use of the oil in the jars for cooking to combat the recent shortages in cooking oil.

And of course, grow your own veg and herbs if you can, to supplement what you buy; seeds are cheap to buy, and you can use old yoghurt or butter tubs and pots to grow your seeds in. When picking wild plants, don’t take the whole plant, try to pick away from busy roads and wash everything well. You can easily check online to identify the right plants to pick. Happy Wild Gleaning!

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

From North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection Paddington and Winnie have now been rehomed, as have two of the older residents in care, Ollie (Irene has now fully recovered from Covid) and Billie. We still have some older cats waiting for someone to offer them a home plus some older kittens who will need experienced cat owners as they are still quite timid having joined us from an outside environment.

There have been many changes introduced since the branch was first set up and one of these is the minimum size of all cat pens used by the Charity to house the cats while they are in our care. This meant that our original pens did not meet the standard required and applied to the three original pens with Stephanie. We were, however, allowed to use the double pen as though it was one pen and the single one for emergency homing. The pens, however, were showing their age and it was decided the time had come to dismantle them. We do still have the two larger pens at Dilham plus the four with Caroline and the two with Irene and we also have the use of some pens with Lesley at her cattery, which all meet the standard required. Having helped to put the original pens up it seems strange not to see them anymore and even stranger now having only two pens to clean.

We have mentioned the Animal Welfare Act in the past and the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH), both of which are working to ensure that all animals receive a certain level of care. There are now changes in the pipeline and Defra is currently reviewing the licensing of animal establishments, e.g. commercial boarding of cats and dogs, pet vending etc. At present this only covers establishments licensed at present although it is anticipated that rescue organisations will be added in the future. The Scottish Government has already announced plans for this legislation for registering and licensing

animal sanctuaries and the Welsh and Northern Ireland Governments have indicated they are likely to follow their lead. The English Government is also expected to act, possibly as early as next year. This may result in some changes as to how Cats Protection works but as we already comply with the minimum standards set out by ADCH, our Head Office are confident that it will not impact greatly on the work that we do at the branch. We will keep you advised of any changes.

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. Please be aware that if you are interested in giving one of our cats a home you need to contact by phone rather than by the contact form on our website, www.northwalsham.cats.org.uk where a description and photograph of the cats can be seen. Stephanie does not use a computer for her cat work so there is a delay in responding to enquiries this way and as she deals with enquiries on a first come first serve policy, she may have already spoken to someone who is interested in giving the cat a home.

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

Hedgehog Haven

Harry was brought to me he’d been found in a crab pot and had got completely entwined in the string, the finders had cut of as much as they could, but I saw straight away it would be a visit to the vets as it was tightly round his legs as the more they try to free themselves the tighter it becomes, he has had to have a small operation, as unfortunately the string had cut deep into his right front leg down to the muscle, hopefully with time it will heal so he can be released back into the wild.

North Walsham Big Bash

North Walsham’s Community ‘Freshers Fair – for All Ages’ 14th May 2022 at 1.30-4.30pm Community Centre and Library New Road, North Walsham NR28 9DE

The North Walsham ‘Big Bash’ is back! Following the cancellation of the planned event in 2020 due to Covid, and the holding of Virtual Big Bash in 2021, we are pleased to announce that a face-to-face event will be held at North Walsham Library and Community Centre on Saturday 14th May (1.30-4.30pm).

The North Walsham Think Carer Network, working with the North Walsham Cultural Consortium and Healthier North Walsham, is organising another fabulous community event where people of all ages can come along, discover what’s going on in North Walsham and chat to many organisations and groups, both local and beyond, that are keen to welcome them. It will be a friendly, fun and free event (with refreshments available!) that will enable residents to sign-up for activities, join community groups or find out about support

services. There will be an opportunity to find out more about The Men’s Shed, Good Neighbour Scheme, North Norfolk Community Transport, North Walsham Play, North Walsham Cultural Consortium, New Stages and North Walsham People’s Choir, as well as many other arts, crafts, leisure, social, health and lifestyle activities – something for all ages!

We aim to connect people and organisations to any support they seek and will provide them with an opportunity to join a ‘Community Conversation’, where the main topic is: ‘how we can make North Walsham an Age-Friendly town – a place where age is not a barrier to living well; where the environment, activities and services enable everybody to live fully, accessing quality health and care, with support if needed.’

We hope to use the information and ideas gathered from the event to help shape and energise a new Virtual Community Hub, which will link individuals and groups digitally to enable them to increase all aspects of community well-being in the town. Transport can be provided by North Norfolk Community Transport (call 01692 500840).

For further information on the Big Bash or any of the related matters contact us on: northwalshamcommunitycontact@gmail.com or 07721 663979

Hare Coursing Falls After Borderless Success

Hare coursing across the East of England has fallen by almost a third thanks to the success of a “borderless” scheme among police forces.

The crackdown on rural crime comes after Norfolk Police teamed up with six other police forces in September. Incidents of hare coursing across the seven force areas fell from 2044 in

2020-2021 to 1415 in 2021-2022, a drop of 31 per cent. Borders between the forces - Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent - were removed when using certain tactics, which has made apprehending and prosecuting offenders easier. The agreement, completed with the support of the Crown Prosecution Service, means the forces become one when using certain powers. Over the past six months this has helped with the use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), the seizure of dogs and the sharing of all interactions and movements of people suspected to be involved in hare coursing. The move also supports the ongoing national initiative against hare coursing - Operation Galileo.

Norfolk’s rural crime officer, PC Chris Shelley, said: “Hare coursing has a terrible impact on our rural communities: it damages property, threatens people's livelihoods, and subjects people and families to fear and intimidation. “The use of police tactics such as ANPR and the sharing of information, together with the issuing of Community Protection Warnings (CPWs), Community Protection Notices (CPNs) and the granting of Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBOs) has seen a region-wide reduction of coursing incidents by 31 per cent.

“It’s an issue we take very seriously, and we will take prompt and robust action to prevent this happening in Norfolk and pursue anybody committing this crime.”

01692 404050

Sally Robinson, a District Crown Prosecutor for the CPS, said: “Those who commit hare coursing have historically exploited the borders of neighbouring forces to continue their illegal activities, causing the extreme suffering and unlawful killing of hares, whilst also having a harmful effect on our rural communities. “By using the legal expertise of the CPS and the operational knowledge of seven police forces in an innovative and collaborative way to effectively remove those borders, we have collectively built stronger cases for prosecution and made it harder for the perpetrators to offend in the future. The CPS takes wildlife crime seriously and we will continue to work closely with the police and other partners to bring offenders to justice whenever our legal test is met.”

Anyone who sees hare coursing taking place is asked to contact police immediately on 999 and provide officers with a description of the people involved, any registration numbers, vehicle descriptions and the location and direction of travel. Its important people don’t confront hare coursers or put themselves at risk.

If you have information about hare coursing and it’s not currently happening, or have been a victim of the crime, please call 101 or report on it on the Norfolk Police website. If a crime is in progress call 999.

I know lots of people don’t even like to acknowledge that their pet could be carrying fleas, but it is fact – If you have a pet, you could have fleas. And the unfortunate part of the problem, as some of you are well aware, is that with the advent of central heating fleas have become a year-long feature. Signs of a heavy flea infestation on your pet include: scratching, biting, showing other signs of discomfort, scabby or irritated skin, and you may see visible signs such as adult fleas or flea dirt. However, some pets (especially cats) will groom adult fleas and flea dirt from their coats making it impossible for their owner to see evidence of a flea problem. Here’s how you can check your pet for fleas (if he/she will cooperate!):

Sit your pet on a bit of white paper and rub its coat vigorously for a few minutes. This should dislodge flea faeces (“dirt”) from the coat which will fall onto the paper. Remove your pet from the paper

It’s that time of year again… the weather is warming up and some of you are thinking about flea control for your pet.

and tip what is left on the paper onto some wet cotton wool or kitchen roll. Over the next minute or so the dried blood in the dark flecks of flea dirt should dissolve to a lighter shade of red.

An important thing to remember is the adult flea represents only 5% of the flea problem. The rest is made up of eggs, worm-like larvae, and the pupa stage.

Fleas are a permanent ectoparasite, meaning that once they land on your pet they stay there until they are removed by grooming or they die. Adult fleas usually live for a matter of days on your pet, but since a female can lay up to 50 eggs a day they have usually deposited 200 eggs in

your house before they are finished.

Another very important fact involving the flea life-cycle is that once the larva are safe in their cocoons as pupae, there is no product available that will kill them. They can stay protected in this state for months and hatch out in less than a second when your pet is close by. This is one of the reasons year-long, consistent flea prevention is so important If you find evidence of fleas on your pet, it definitely means you should be treating them. But remember, just because you don’t see evidence doesn’t mean your pet isn’t suffering from flea bites. There are now a wide variety of products and formulations for treating and preventing fleas ranging from sprays, spot-on, tablets and injections for cats. An integrated plan consists of using products that will kill adult fleas and products that treat the environment (house, car, kennel, etc).

Speak to your vet about what combination of products would be best for you, your pet, and your home.

Solution to No. 301: 1. Qa1, threat 2. Qxd4. 1… Kxb42. Rb7; 1… Bxe4 2. Rc7; 1… Kd6 2. Rd7; 1… Be3 2. Rf7; 1… Rd3 2. Rg7. And of course, 1… Rxe7+ 2. Bxe7. Beautifully engineered Pelle theme; five discovered mates by the pinned white R, three by double check when the black Bc6 defends or the black K takes one of his flights (one given by the excellent Key), two more as shut-offs when one of two defensive pieces moves away.

No. 302 is one for the numerous local OTB players recently featured in this magazine and in several recent issues of Town & Country News, and indeed all local chess players.

Mindfulness through Art

Weddings! Weddings! Weddings!

Norfolk County Council Adult Learning Wellbeing Programme Coordinator John Madeley contacted Age Concern North Norfolk last year to see if we were interested in them delivering courses to our clients in the Day Centre. The courses are art and craft based but with mindfulness and well-being at their heart. As face-to-face tutoring might have been difficult, they even gave us a laptop to facilitate on-line courses.

After two rather exasperating years for anyone trying to arrange a wedding, 2022 finally looks to be the year when it all comes together.

With limits on numbers now a thing of the past, and other restrictions all but lifted, it is full steam ahead for weddings large and small across North Norfolk. The traditional ‘Wedding Season’ takes place each year from around Easter through to late October but could well be extended this year due to high demand.

Many Norfolk ladies have told Occasions Hat Hire in North Walsham that they’ve spent much of the past couple of years ‘dressing down’ and are now really looking forward to ‘dressing up’ for big occasions! So, how to look your very best this season, particularly if you’ve several events lined up in quick succession?

We have had several sessions with the tutor Jennie and have covered art inspired by music, rock painting and fingerprint art. The workshops are fun and give our clients the opportunity to express themselves using a range of art materials and music. The sessions also teach our clients about famous artists and their techniques while looking at strategies to help with well-being.

The answer is a stunning hat or fascinator, perfectly matched to your outfit. But why buy for just one occasion, be it wedding, garden party, or special event, when hiring is such an economical and more satisfactory option?

Several people made Easter cards and one gentleman made a ‘Get Well’ card for his wife using his fingerprints to depict a row of balloons. His wife was thrilled to receive it.

Occasions Hat Hire pride themselves in offering individual attention and advice on colour, size and fit of a wide range of hats, hatinators and fascinators. Indeed, many ladies who didn’t think hats suited them have since discovered that with the right advice, they really can complete their look.

All our clients demonstrate exceptional concentration during these workshops and gain a sense of achievement and feelings of well-being and confidence afterwards.

With 300+ hats to choose from in a kaleidoscope of colours and styles, plus stylish hand bags and gloves to complete any outfit, you really will be spoilt for choice.

These sessions will continue for several weeks at the centre and are helping support staff to develop future activities building on what they have also learned.

To arrange a free and without obligation appointment, please telephone 01692 405543 or book online via their website at www.occasionshathire. co.uk where you can also see some of the beautiful hats on offer.

We like to ensure every day at the centre is as varied and interesting as possible and if you would like to try a Taster Day yourself, please ring Alison on 01263 821188 to arrange it.

Occasions are based on Cromer Road in North Walsham, with ample off-street parking right outside.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

With the Platinum Jubilee around the corner, I got to thinking what would be a good recipe for this month? I decided it should be something retro but appropriate for making and sharing if you are having a get together for the occasion.

I remember my mother making this cake when I was little, and what a treat it was served up with custard, or on special occasions, cream, (or in those days Dream Topping, remember that?).

The recipe makes a single layer cake, but for a special occasion you could double the quantity of sponge mix and bake one layer without the pineapple, then sandwich it with your choice of jam and cream or buttercream. A feast fit for a king, or queen!

235g softened butter plus extra for greasing 175g caster sugar 3 eggs, beaten ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 175g self-raising flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons whole milk

centre of each ring. Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, vanilla, remaining butter and milk and mix with a hand mixer (or by hand) until smooth and well combined. Spoon the mixture over the pineapple rings carefully, level and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until risen and golden.

Method Preheat the oven to 180C. Thoroughly grease a deep 20cm (8 inch) round cake tin (two if doubling the mixture to make a sandwich cake).

When cooked, leave in the tin to cool for a few minutes, run a knife around the edge to loosen and place a serving plate over the tin. Hold the tin and plate together firmly and turn over. Remove the cake tin and leave to cool.

Drain the pineapple rings and dry off on kitchen paper. Melt together the soft brown sugar and 60g of the butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat. Spoon into the bottom of the cake tin and arrange the pineapple rings in the bottom of the tin. Place a glace cherry on the

NB: If making a sandwich cake, double the sponge mix ingredients, divide between two cake tins and omit the pineapple and melted sugar/butter mixture for the bottom sponge.

Happy Jubilee, Jo – editor.

North Norfolk u3a ‘Summer Happenings’

The North Norfolk ‘u3a’ is 30 years old this year and to celebrate it is holding three events to mark the occasion. Because the North Norfolk ‘u3a’ covers a large geographical area they will be spread out over the county: Fakenham in May, Sheringham in July and Cromer in September.

Members of the u3a will be invited to one of the three informal gatherings which will provide the opportunity to socialise with old friends, meet with new and enjoy afternoon tea. The National ‘u3a’ organisation, the Third Age Trust, came into being forty years ago so it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the ‘u3a’ both locally and nationally.

What is this ‘u3a’ this ‘third age’ and is it for me? Basically it’s that time in your life (not necessarily chronological) when you can undertake learning for its own sake. Members are certainly not working towards qualifications they’re simply learning for pleasure. There is no distinction between learners and teachers – everyone could take a turn at being both if they wished.

If you didn’t know the ‘U3A’ started in France at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Toulouse in 1973. The UK ‘u3a’ movement is based loosely on the French model and aims to encourage groups of people in their third age to come together and continue their enjoyment of learning in subjects of interest to them.

What can we learn from celebrities who died without making a will? by Yasmin Knock, Solicitor, Hayes + Storr Solicitors

Celebrities often have professional advisors who look after their business affairs. However, like many people, sometimes they do not get around to making a will. When you die without a will, predetermined laws of intestacy decide who should inherit your estate, and while these laws seek to deal with matters in a fair way, they do not consider modern family structures, family dynamics or personal wishes.

Prince’s lesson for philanthropists Family feuds over who should inherit are harder to settle where there is no will, as the person’s wishes remain unknown. After Prince died, intestacy rules meant that all his assets passed to his siblings, leaving his five half-siblings without a share of his estate. Had Prince made a will, he might have chosen to make gifts to his half-siblings as well. He may also have chosen to leave legacies to the various charities he gave generously to throughout his lifetime, something which cannot be achieved without a will.

Stieg Larsson’s lesson for unmarried couples Author Stieg Larsson, who famously wrote the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, died

intestate. His vast wealth passed to his father under intestacy, leaving his long-term partner with nothing. Unmarried couples are not entitled to each other’s estates, regardless of the seriousness or length of the relationship, so the only way to ensure your partner receives any of your assets is to leave them in a will.

Rik Mayall’s lesson in tax planning Intestacy is often not the best approach when it comes to tax planning. When actor Rik Mayall died intestate, his wealth was subject to a substantial inheritance tax liability that might have been reduced has he planned his affairs during his lifetime. One of the most important ways to benefit from available tax savings is with a will.

Pablo Picasso’s lesson to save delay and costs Without a valid will, a complex and extensive estate can be difficult to deal with, resulting in unnecessary delays and high costs. Whilst an average estate takes around one year to administer, when Pablo Picasso died without a will his estate reportedly took six years to settle and cost approximately $30 million.

Amy Winehouse’s lesson for entrepreneurs

Intestacy rules do not consider the continued management of estate assets like a business or intellectual property such as royalties from music. Amy Winehouse’s intestacy resulted in her £4 million estate being almost entirely depleted within two years of her death after her companies passed into the control of her parents. A will would have allowed her to appoint an appropriate person to manage the companies on behalf of her beneficiaries to ensure they remained viable assets.

Italian Stargazer Who Wanted a Closer Look By David Abbott

Galileo’s dad wanted to call him Fred. But his mum said he should have a cool name just in case. So, Galileo Galilei it was.

The young Galileo was obsessed with the sky. As his father would say “he was born sunny side up”. But he warned his young son: “Stop looking up all the time or you’ll get run over”.

By an early age Galileo figured there were lots of stars. Lots. And he wondered how he could get a closer look. He considered being loaded into a canon and fired up to see them. But he thought his mother might not be too happy with that.

To the stars? In those days most people didn’t go far. Down the pub and back was as near an adventure as many got. A few brave souls got into boats. Some were never seen again. “That proves,” said his father “the world is flat. They fell off the edge.” He knew his science.

In Galileo’s home town of Pisa some would gaze in puzzlement at the leaning tower. And ask why? Galileo had an idea. Having thrown all kinds of objects from the top and apparently failing to kill anyone, he discovered the speed of fall of an object was not proportional to its weight. Eat your

heart out Aristotle.

In Spring 1609 Galileo heard about an invention in the Netherlands which brought things closer. Aha, he thought. I don’t need a canon after all.

Having mastered the art of lens grinding, he built a 20x magnifying telescope. Then he set it up to look at the Moon and found wasn’t made of cheese. He went on to discover Jupiter’s moons Ganymede, Europa, lo and the rings of Saturn. Not a bad day’s work for a college dropout.

When not gazing skyward he had a terrestrial star which shone bright. He had “an arrangement” with a Venetian woman, Marina Gamba, who told him he needed to get out more. Clearly, he didn’t because they had two daughters and a son.

In those days suggesting the earth goes round the sun wasn’t exactly greeted enthusiastically by the perceived science of the day. As for rocks falling from space, oh come on! The Italian Inquisition was on hand to disabuse people of all such nonsense. The ageing Galileo got on the wrong side of them and was put under house arrest for the rest of his life. At least his mum was right: Galileo had

a better ring to it than Fred.

Salvation Army Grateful for Vital Funding

Visit us at www.rbelltreeservices.co.uk

14 Birch Close, North Walsham, Norfolk NR28 0UD

Salvation Army leaders who received funding from the Norfolk Community Foundation to help feed vulnerable people say it has made a huge difference.

Through participation with families directly, other agencies and schools supporting people across Norfolk, the voucher scheme has helped the church and charity develop relationships and build connections for a more joined up community. 12 branches in Norfolk were supported by the Norfolk Community Foundation through its Household Support Fund to purchase and distribute £50 food vouchers.

The Salvation Army also worked with other agencies who referred families to its Toys and

Tins appeal at Christmas. The agencies distributed the vouchers to the families they work with. One agency, supporting young people moving into independent living, used the vouchers to teach budgeting skills through the process of buying staple foods, whilst another worked with a small group to shop and prepare meals together.

Not only did the vouchers assist struggling households with buying essentials, but they also led to The Salvation Amy connecting with people who would not normally use its services. The Salvation Army offers a range of assistance from employment and debt advice to participation in a range of well-being and social activities.

Carol McKean is community manager in Sheringham. She said vouchers were distributed to 150 households.

She added: “When we were told we had access to funding, we immediately identified lots of families experiencing hardship. People are paying more national insurance; fuel costs have gone up and food costs are spiralling. People are worried and panicking.

“These vouchers made a huge difference to those households who are getting support and eased the strain for a short period of time. The families were hugely grateful.”

Carol said The Salvation Army in Sheringham worked closely with schools, other churches and local children’s services to identify vulnerable people and families.

She explained: “We all worked together to meet the needs of families who needed help the most. But any of us may need support as we go forward.”

Bothered by Mummy Tummy?

Now you have a safe and effective option to do something about it.

Colishall Cosmetic Clinic provides several effective options including a mini-tummy tuck.

What is a mini tummy tuck or mini-abdominoplasty procedure? Mini tummy tuck is a procedure to address stubborn area of stretched, sagging skin and fat on your lower tummy. Pregnancy, aging and genetics are common culprits behind a belly pouch and unfortunately, diet and exercise are often ineffective in helping to get rid of it. If you are bothered by the appearance of your lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck may help you get the results you want with a relatively short recovery. Mini-tummy tuck reduces sagging skin and fat from lower abdomen improving body contours and silhouette.

How is mini-tummy tuck different from a full tummy tuck? Full tummy tuck is a major operation performed under general anaesthesia. It is suitable for patients after massive weight loss, patients with severe stretch marks all over their abdomen or in patients

with significant muscle wall laxity or abdominal hernias. It requires a longer scar, wide undermining [which risks blood supply to the skin] hence liposuction is not carried out during this procedure. There is a scar around the belly button as it has to be moved. It is a major procedure that provides a tighter but not necessary slimmer appearance.

Mini tummy tuck is a good option in patients with skin excess in lower part of their belly. Mini tummy tuck is a less invasive option. This uses a relatively short incision in the same area of a C-section scar and avoids the incision around the belly button. This is often performed on women who have mild sagging or post-baby pouch, stretch marks from pregnancy, or C-section scarring. This procedure focuses only on the area below the belly button, not the entire abdomen.

We nearly always add liposuction to our tummy tucks to sculpt the body in 3 dimension. The technique known also as mini lipo-abdominoplasty with no undermining, makes it possible to safely combine liposculpture of the abdomen with lower abdomen skin tightening. Unlike traditional tummy tucks, this operation allows for more contouring of the abdomen. It gives a result that is both tight and shapely.

What are the advantages of a mini-abdominoplasty? • Enhancing of the body shape and silhouette as a result of liposuction. • Lower rate of complications. • Easier surgery performances. • Natural profiles.

What treatment alternatives are available? Mesotherapy injections can help melt fat, a non-surgical, non-invasive solution is ultrasound and radiofrequency fat reduction. Laser liposuction may provide enough skin tightening to avoid need for skin removal in some patients. Co2 laser can be used to improve stretch marks.

Call us on 01603 736487 to book your consultation for mini-tummy tuck or mini-abdominoplasty procedure. You can find out more information at www.coltishallclinic.co.uk.

Gold Rush For Vikings

It was the time for the junior swimmers of the North Norfolk Vikings Swimming Club to deliver their very best when they travelled to compete in Diss in a team of sixteen - ages ranged from seven to eleven. For some it was their first experience of competition.

Nerves faded quickly right from the first event when Reuben Seaman of Aylsham got Vikings off to the perfect start by winning gold in the 100m individual medley in 1:49.0. His elder sister Esme, immediately followed with another Viking gold over the same event finishing the course in 1:35.73. The decisive element of her swim was her butterfly as she breathed every five strokes which pulled her to the front after the first leg of the event.

Along with donations from Bodham Playing Fields Committee, Cromer Youth FC and the support of our players’ families, we managed to source enough funds.”
