Seaside Seascapes

Covering Sheringham, the Runtons, Holt and surrounding villages in association with the Cromer Times and North Walsham Times

A group of students at Sheringham Community Primary School have been working away to complete a set of murals to decorate the Tank shelter on the East promenade.

This is all part of an initiative by Sheringham in Bloom who, although their main works involve flower displays and public gardens, first started the idea of colourful works of art on the Tank over 10 years ago.

To help to brighten up the rather plain shelter, Sheringham in Bloom is delighted to have the talents of local students put on display in this way. The work has been supervised by teacher Becky Robinson and also Kate Munro, the artist in residence at the school.

Teachers and students came along on Wednesday morning to see the murals mounted on the Tank by Sheringham in Bloom volunteers. Their work has a Seaside Seascapes theme and will be seen by residents and visitors throughout the coming season. It is well worth a visit.

North Norfolk Photographic Society - Top Club!

The Journey so Far

Roy Essery spoke to North Norfolk Photographic Society on 30 April. He lives in Suffolk and is a member of camera clubs in Colchester and Ipswich, as well as being a founder member of the Suffolk Monochrome Group and a holder of the Diploma of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

Roy’s light hearted talk was titled The Journey So Far, and was illustrated with photographs he had taken since he started using digital cameras in 2003. These were to say the least, varied, but Roy’s interest centres on landscapes and portraits, the portraits being both studio and ‘street’ shots.

Members were told that if they saw someone with an interesting face, it usually works if you approach the person, introduce yourself and explain that you are a keen amateur photographer and would like to take their picture.

Some of Roy’s landscape images were ’as seen’ but others had additions - there was one into which a whippet had been inserted, and which greatly improved both the interest and the composition of the print.

The Society normally meets on alternate Wednesday evenings at The Holt Community Centre. Visitors are most welcome and further information can be found either from the website

or from Secretary Judith Wells at 01328 710181.

The Village Inn West Runton

A photographic competition took place between four Norfolk clubs on 29 April.

Held at North Walsham, the Caister, Buxton, North Walsham and North Norfolk societies each submitted seven prints and seven digital images for judging by Andy Wilson.

High Tea

It was quite a close thing after the prints had been judged, with North Norfolk Photographic Society leading by one point from Caister, with Buxton and North Walsham a little behind.

In the second half, Buxton and North Norfolk Photographic Society were equal leaders.

Overall, North Norfolk Photographic Society were convincing winners with a total of 115 points, Buxton were second with 110 followed by Caister (107) and North Walsham (102).

Among their winning groups, the North Norfolk Society’s members achieved full marks of 10 out of 10 with four of their pictures - Paul Keates’ Morning Shower and Morning Catch, David Tottman’s Madonna on the Stairs and Judy Knights’ High Tea.

Madonna on the Stairs

The Society normally meets on alternate Wednesday evenings at The Holt Community Centre. Visitors are most welcome and further information can be found either from the website, or from Secretary Judith Wells at 01328 710181.

Sheringham Independent 392 May 24th 2014

Horse welfare - a big issue The Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary was founded in 1983 by Sue Burton, following the plight of over 100 horses left to die on the

bleak and flooded Rainham Marshes near Pitsea in Essex.

Thirteen horses died in the most appalling conditions, despite all efforts by the public to save them. Since then horse welfare has continued to be an increasing issue and this winter has been a truly horrendous one, due to the flooding and abandonment of so many horses.

Sue and her small band of workers at the sanctuary now look after over 200 animals including horses, donkeys, cows, sheep cats and dogs. Two of their recent additions are mares, Holly and Gracie, both blind and pregnant and abandoned. The births are imminent and the pair, although found separately, have formed a close bond and graze together.

Gracie and Holly

It costs in excess of ÂŁ400,000 a year to run the sanctuary which relies entirely on donations and constant fundraising. Although it is based

in Ingatestone Essex, Remus is far reaching in its welfare work covering many areas of the UK including Norfolk.

With this in mind I am organising a table top sale in aid of the sanctuary on Saturday 14 June at The Lighthouse Community Church, Cromer Road Sheringham from 10.30am till 1pm. Entry is ree. Please come along and support this event if you can and if anyone can spare even a short time to help on the day we would be so grateful.

Equally if you have anything you could donate I would love to hear from you. Thank you on behalf of the animals.

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

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

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

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

Chris Hargest

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

Fernie, one of our long-term residents

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

If however you are interested in receiving help to neuter your cat/kitten please ring 07880 256948 (to see if you are eligible for a voucher).

Paston Celebrates 30 years as a Sixth Form College

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

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

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

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

Holt and District Probus Club

Probus Clubs are, of course, open for membership to retired professional and business people. Retired people are usually older than the average, and a poor memory is for many older people an increasing fact of life! It was helpful, therefore, that at the lunch meeting of Holt and District Probus Club on 1 May Mr Alan Ward was the guest of honour and speaker with advice on ‘How to Enjoy a Bad Memory‘. He explained that it is (almost) inevitable that memory will deteriorate as we get older, although ladies’ memory loss seems to occur later and more slowly than men’s.

But there are things you can do about it - both physical and mental exercise help. And as things get worse, use of mnemonics may sometimes save a tricky situation, especially in remembering people’s names. One member quickly decided that Alan Ward’s first name had something to do with a key - an Allen key.

Robin Johnson was asked to give thanks to the speaker, and was ready with a joke about two naughty old ladies who challenged a man passing by with a bet that they could guess his age. The bet was accepted, and the ladies ‘guessed’ that he was 85. ‘How did you get that?’ he asked. ‘We were at your birthday party yesterday’ came the reply. Old ladies have better memories than old men!

The club meets at The Feathers, Holt, on the first Thursday in every month and enquiries about membership (or a trial visit) should be made to Secretary Eric Dear on 01263 823207.

Sheringham RNLI Annual General Meeting

Sheringham RNLI held its AGM for the year ending 31 March 2014 at the Burlington Hotel Sheringham on Monday 28 April at 7.30 pm.

The annual event, which was well attended by crew, committee and members of the public, enabled the branch committee to summarise the casualty services and events of 2013/14 and discuss their plans for 2014/15.

The Lifeboat Operations Manager Mr Brian Farrow thanked the Senior Helmsman Mr David Hagan for the excellent manner in which he had led the crew during the last 12 months. He said “The Lifeboat had responded to twelve casualty callouts all of which had been successfully concluded”. He said the crew were at full complement despite the difficulties in attracting and retaining suitable dedicated volunteers for this exciting but very demanding role.

The Chairman of the Branch Mr Phil Hawes praised the work of the High Street Shop manager, Mrs Anne Little and the Boat House Shop manager Mrs Mary Blyth and all of their volunteer helpers for their outstanding success in their fundraising efforts which make such a fundamental contribution to the stations financial well-being.

He also thanked the Treasurer Mr Mick Holford for his expert management of the branch accounts and the stations fund raising efforts which had yet again shown an increase year on year. The chairman noted that Messrs David Mann and Trevor Holsey had been awarded the Silver Badge and 20 year bar to their long service Badges. Mr Clive Rayment had been awarded his 20 year bar to his long service medal and Anne Hook and Billy Thirtle had both been awarded Bronze badges. Anne for her management of the RNLI Car Park and Billy for his over fifty years’ service to the Sheringham Branch of the RNLI both as crew member and Branch Committee member.

In summary Mr Hawes said “In such a fast a changing world it is wonderful to see that the old fashioned ideas of service and community are still very active in Sheringham RNLI”.

Rig worker evacuated by Lifeboat

The Coastguard alerted Cromer RNLI to a medical emergency on 30 April at 8 25am. A worker on a rig approximately 38 miles north east of Cromer required medical assistance. With visibility at 200 metres, it was decided to launch Cromer’s relief all weather boat.

The relief boat Edward and Barbara Prigmore was launched following the sounding of the crews pagers at 8.10am. Although the sea was calm and the wind slight, poor visibility meant a helicopter could not attend and the RNLI crew were able to assist.

The emergency involved a worker on a platform who needed to be transferred to a medical facility on land. After a journey lasting about an hour and a half Cromer RNLI reached the scene, the person was then carefully transferred to the lifeboat.

The return journey then resumed with the All weather Boat reaching the home station at 2pm where paramedics and an ambulance was waiting. Once the worker was transferred to the care of the other services the lifeboat was cleaned down and made ready for service.

Sheringham History Group

At the May meeting, Lynne Hurst shared her knowledge of postcards illustrated with 140 Sheringham postcards from her personal collection dated late 1800's to 1920. We learned Lynn and husband Ian are deltiologists-one who collects and studies postcards. Also, deltiology is the third most popular collecting hobby preceded by stamps and coins. The first postcard was printed in Austria in 1869. The early Sheringham postcards were published in Switzerland. Stengel and Peacock Publishers were German. During the First World War, Britain began printing her own postcards rather than Germany. A way to date postcards is to look at the publisher's name and/or country of origin but it is fun to read what was written on a card that has been posted years ago. Early British publishers were Jarrold's, W.H. Smith amd B.A. Watts all with a local connection to Sheringham. Rounce & Wortley was Sheringham promenade, around 1900, facing another postcard Beeston bump with bell tents on the beach. A Gerprinter/publisher early man, Stengel print with message to be written on the on. There was much front and address only to be written on the back. useful and interesting information given as the many postcards were shown of Sheringham scenes for the time period pre-1900 to 1920. Lynne has agreed to return with postcards from Sheringham between the wars. Postcards seems a popular topic and many thanks to Lynne for preparing a talk on very short notice due to a cancelation.

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

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

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

The Society had a really uplifting and heartwarming talk given by James Stanbrook, Headmaster of Woodfields, a school in Sheringham for children with special needs.

Listening to what the teachers are expected to do for the children is amazing. They have to cope with incontinence, epileptic fits, complicated medication needs and much else. We were left feeling that the teachers are wonderful and completely dedicated to their charges. They have a shop in the Tesco complex where the children can be taught how to handle money and customers and volunteers are always needed, as

New Sheringham Singers Earth, Sea and Sky

Salthouse Church in the setting sun was the perfect venue for this concert by a choir of 30 strong ladies’ voices led by musical director and conductor Ro Curtis and expertly accompanied by Jan Ashton on keyboard.

The programme ranged from madrigals to film scores and reflected the theme of our natural world.

The first half began with Rutter’s “For the Beauty of the Earth” with the word “beauty” resonating in the chest of this marvellous church as the choir settled in their ability to work with the full acoustic resonance of the space. This was followed by a crisp rendition of Morley’s “Now is the month of Maying” and the pastoral scenes from “Watching the wheat.”

The evening was punctuated with readings linked to the theme read by choir members. The audience clearly enjoyed a rendition of “The Mermaid” by Cyril Fletcher read with humour and panache by Patricia Welsh! We were also treated to two performances by Keith Hobday – music teacher at Gresham’s who masterfully led us through an amazing selection of movements from J.S. Bach’s First Cello Suite in G Major. He chose to play these pieces on his viola, a decision that I am sure other audience members would agree, was greatly valued.

The first half concluded with the choir putting down their music to enjoy the full pleasure of singing the well-known, “Catch a Falling Star” and “Blue Moon” – the ladies smiled and moved with the music providing a relaxed end to the first half of the programme.

“The Rose” (McBroom arr Knowles) was also powerful and well received.

The evening concluded with the iconic fun of “Bring me sunshine” which I think we can say this concert did! Claire Brayne

the future of slimming

children around the world live in poverty and don’t own a single pair of shoes. Many suffer from diseases that could easily be prevented by wearing shoes. For example, in Ethiopia and at least 14 other countries, more than four million people suffer from a painful disease called podoconisis. This disease causes extreme swelling of the feet and legs and is caused by an irritant in the soil.

The boys joined people worldwide who went without shoes to highlight the important issue of children who are growing up without a single pair of shoes to wear.

Every year, One Day Without Shoes calls on people to join them in taking off their shoes for a day to raise awareness of the issues faced by those who don’t own a simple pair of shoes.

At the end of their day without shoes the boys were very relieved that they are lucky enough to be able to wear shoes.

‘We had to be very careful about where we walked and our feet were really cold by the end of the day’, explained Dougie.

Cromer Pier and Pavilion Theatre Temporary Box Office

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

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

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

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

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

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

New addition to our fleet of wedding cars

Cromer and Sheringham Probus Club

At the May meeting last year, we invited ladies as guests to one of our speaker lunches for the first time and it proved to be very popular. We did it again this year and it was another success.

A total attendance of 50 members and guests enjoyed the three course lunch at the Links Hotel in West Runton. This was followed by a thoroughly entertaining performance by Greg Powles, who gave us a marvellously energetic account of some of his experiences behind the scenes in cinema, theatre and radio broadcasting. There were some digressions and his one-man Norfolk version of Romeo and Juliet was a particular joy to witness.

Our next meeting on 3 June will not feature a speaker, as lunch will be followed by the AGM. The usual monthly meetings will resume from the first Tuesday of July along with the new programme of talks.

The club is open to gentlemen who are retired or nearly so. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact Dave Vickery on 01263 824306 for more information.

Dear Margaret,

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

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

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

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

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

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

North Norfolk Macmillan Group

We are just forming a new section of the local MacMillan Group - an Events Planning Group.

This group will spearhead fundraising activities in the North Norfolk area. We are looking for willing volunteers to become Fringe members of this planning group - this would involve offering your time to assist at pre-arranged fundraising events. There would be no meetings to attend, and nothing formal, unless of course you want to attend the Annual Meeting, or become a full Committee Member (we would be delighted to have you and you would be very welcome!).

We are also looking for volunteers to join our list of existing street collectors in Cromer, Holt and Sheringham (we also collect at Morrisons in Cromer in December). Just an hour a couple of times a year would help so much!

Please come forward and volunteer to help this wonderful Charity! Telephone our Chairman Nick Bell on 01263 821443 or Diane Evans 01263 823889.

100th Marathon Supports Nelson’s Journey Vinnie Purdy from Cromer is about to embark on his 100th marathon.

Vinnie says ‘I first started running in 2001 to lose some weight - I was 4 or 5 stone heavier when at school and my brother and his mates used to call me “Eclipse”. I didn't do or enjoy any form of sport. I ran my first marathon in 2002 in London and, like most people, said never again. But soon forgot and did another one!

On 8 June I will be running my 100th official marathon, which will be a trail marathon of 30 miles organised by the LDWA (Long Distance Walk Association) at Sheringham called the "Poppy Line Marathon", normally 26 miles but this year, to celebrate the 30th year of the event, the course will be extended to 30 miles taking in Felbrigg Park, Holt Country Park, Sheringham Park and the cliff tops from Weybourne to Sheringham. I am hoping that some fellow runners from my local running club the North Norfolk Beach Runners will be joining me on the day - I know quite a few have signed up already. I still have number 99 to go as well which is going to be the "Dukeries 40" a 40 mile ultra in and

around Sherwood Forest, on11 May - this will be my 9th marathon this year.

My total of 98 so far is made up of 57 marathons (26.2m) and 41 ultra marathons ranging from 30 miles up to 145 miles. I have run marathons up and down the country, in London, Edinburgh, Loch Ness, Bungay, Halstead, Northumberland , Portsmouth and even around a 400m athletics track in Crawley. I have also run some crazy long distance races such as Caesers Camp, an off road 100mile race of 10x10 mile laps on army training land in Hampshir, taking in the equivalent height of three Ben Nevis's. The longest race I have done is the Grand Union Canal race, a 145 mile nonstop race from Birmingham to London along the canal towpath. The most I have done in a year was 21 in 2011 and my quickest time was at London 2013 when I managed to finish in 3 hours 15 mins and 26 seconds.

Once I have completed the marathon on 8 June, I will be able to wear the club colours of the 100 Marathon Club (an official UK running club dedicated to people who have run 100 official marathons or ultras (ultras only count as one, no matter how many miles).

I have chosen to use this to also raise some money for Nelson’s Journey who have recently helped members of my extended family with their excellent support. Nelson's Journey is a registered charity providing a service for

children and young people aged 0-17 years inclusive, living in Norfolk, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life such as a parent or sibling. They aim to improve the emotional wellbeing of bereaved children by: increasing their confidence and self belief, providing education about the causes of death and enabling families to talk openly about their bereavement. Based in Norwich, they were founded in 1997, since which time they have helped hundreds of children.

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

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk (BCKLWN) are calling on Norfolk County Council to urgently reconsider the proposed reduction of £1.04 million in second homes money currently earmarked to be paid to District Councils and used to support communitybased projects. In the attempt to find the £30m costs following the decision to withdraw from the ill-fated incinerator contract County Council officers have recommended that to raise some of the cash required they should take the half of the money raised from council tax on second homes that the County Council currently redistributes to District Councils. NNDC Leader, Tom FitzPatrick said “It would be highly inappropriate for the County Council to withdraw unilaterally from the current arrangements, which are based on a long standing agreement reached by the Leaders of all of Norfolk’s local authorities. This money helps people to stay in rural communities where there is a high proportion of second homes and helps tackle rural isolation as well as providing support to small communities and community groups to raise money for facilities they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford”.


If the money is withdrawn it will have a serious impact on local communities, as all the funds raised in this way are targeted at community projects in those areas where second home ownership is particularly high. Schemes to have benefitted include the Homes for Wells project, providing affordable homes for local people, school improvement programmes and replenishment of sea defences, as well as providing financial support for a raft of local initiatives that would not otherwise have gone ahead. Cllr Nick Daubney, Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, added “When an agreement is reached as to how something will be dealt with, I think we have every right to expect that agreement to be upheld. We have been collecting second homes money for several years now on the understanding that 50% gets redistributed to the districts and the remaining 50% goes to county infrastructure projects across the county. “We have used the money for very constructive partnership working, most particularly to raise the standard of local education services. We’ve made commitments on the basis of receiving that income being available and people have committed to us, on that same understanding.

Meet Sheringham's New Mayor

I would like to thank all the people who have sent me messages of support on my election as Mayor of Sheringham. To wear the Chain of Office and be elected Mayor is a great honour. The Chain is symbolic and it represents all the people of the town. The many names engraved on it show the men and women who have dedicated their time to leading Sheringham Town Council.

I have lived in Sheringham for thirteen years, since coming here to work at Break and then making it our retirement home. My background has always been in the caring professions, firstly as a nurse then as a social worker. I am very committed to my voluntary work for Age UK North Norfolk and many other local organisations. It is to the work of the many volunteers of Sheringham that I want to pay tribute and support throughout the year.

I am very fortunate to be married to David, who is long-suffering but is used to me after 50 years! We have a daughter, Marie, son-in-law, Ira, and two amazing grandsons, Freddy and Albert. They live in Newcastle but descend on Sheringham as soon as the schools break up. My mum is 90 and I visit her in Lincolnshire at least once a week. I relax on our

allotment or with a good book and love entertaining the many good friends we have made in the town.

I am very fortunate to have been elected Mayor of Sheringham for the coming year and I will endeavour to serve the town faithfully and honestly. During my term I hope more of the town’s residents will become involved in the work of the Council.

Many of you I know feel the Town Hall and the business transacted there to be remote and not relevant. I would welcome your presence at any of our meetings to hear your views. We are going through a challenging but exciting time with more responsibilities being passed to us from the District Council. I want you to be involved in making decisions about the direction we should be taking. Please, if you see me in the street, stop and have chat - I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can.

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

Richard Howitt, the Labour MEP for the East of England, has backed calls for more EU money to be made available for coastal defences in the future, and criticised the UK Government for not claiming in time EU solidarity money made available for Norfolk immediately after the flooding. He was recently given a tour of parts of the North Norfolk coast and met residents still suffering following last year's devastating floods. Following the floods, North Norfolk Labour Party launched the 'Protect Our Coast' petition calling on the Environment Agency to reinstate and improve coastal defences.

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

Timb Win er dow Now s Avai lable

Mr Howitt said “Climate change is not just an idea for Happisburgh and North Norfolk, it is something that is happening to them right now. Coastal erosion has a devastating effect on communities such as this, and Europe needs to make more help available.

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

Norfolk pupil reaches finals of a national song writing competition

Romy Sipek, a Year 8 pupil at Gresham’s Prep School in Holt has just been named as one of the finalists in a national song writing competition with her song, Devil from Above. As a result, Romy who is one of 10 finalists in the 7-12 year old category of the Young Songwriter Competition 2014, will perform with a professional band at the Song Academy showcase in London in June 2014.

The national competition which is now in its third year is an exciting platform for aspiring young songwriters to have their songs heard by industry professionals, with an opportunity to release their own single. Director of Music, Nathan Waring said, “Romy has shown considerable flair as a singer/songwriter since her early days at Gresham’s Pre-Prep. She regularly performs her own music, accompanying herself on the piano or guitar in school concerts and I’m thrilled that she has now achieved some national recognition for her talent.”

Romy wrote her first song when she was 10 years old and has written six songs to date. She is currently working on her seventh song! Her musical influences are electronic chart music and she also likes Taylor Swift.

Yoga for All Morning

A group of North Norfolk yoga teachers are offering a morning of yoga for all to raise money for the Norfolk charity Nelson’s Journey.

Nelson’s Journey is a registered charity providing a service for children and young people aged 0-17 years inclusive, living in Norfolk, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.

Louise Ellis

The yoga morning will be held at Swanton Novers Village Hall on Saturday 7 June and will include Family Yoga 10am – 10.45am, Gentle Yoga 11am – 11,45am, Deep Relaxation & Meditation 12pm – 12.45pm, all at £5 per class per adult, children under 12 years free. There will also be delicious homemade refreshments and a raffle. A representative from Nelson’s Journey will also be present with information on their valuable work.

Nelson’s Journey endeavours to ‘bring back smiles to bereaved children’.

They aim to improve the emotional well-being of bereaved children by increasing their confidence and self-belief, providing education about the causes of death and enabling families to talk openly about their bereavement.

It is currently estimated that 1 in 29 school aged children have experienced the death of a parent or sibling. In Norfolk this equates to approximately 3825 children. This figure is significantly higher when pre-school children and 17 year olds are included. During 2010, 214 children from around Norfolk received a service from Nelson’s Journey. The charity estimates that 280 children, living in Norfolk, experience the death of a significant person in their lives annually.
