Sheringham North Councillor Brian Hannah Resigns

Nick adds Dame role to directing for milestone panto

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

Cllr Hannah resigns due to ill-health and by-election arrangements announced

Following Cllr Brian Hannah’s resignation from the District Council through ill-health, arrangements will now be made to hold a by-election for the Sheringham North ward on North Norfolk District Council.

“I am really excited and it’s a dream come true to be dame here,” said he 37-year-old self-confessed panto addict who has previously played the Sarah role at Sheffield.

Cllr Hannah has represented Sheringham on North Norfolk District Council for 22 years, and throughout that time has been a champion of community safety issues on the Council.

In paying tribute to Cllr Hannah’s service to the community and District Council, Cllr Sarah Bütikofer Leader of the Council and the Liberal Democrat Group said “Brian has made a very significant contribution to the life of the District Council over the past 22 years, helping many people in his local community of Sheringham and across the wider District. It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with Brian, and I know many across the Council will miss his presence greatly in the Council Chamber. I know it has been a difficult decision for Brian to stand down from his position as a councillor and I would like to thank him for his years of dedicated service”.

“As a child I obsessed with panto. I used to love watching them, but also taping Top of the Pops tunes and working out how to work them into a panto show,” he explained.

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

Arrangements are now being made to hold a by-election to fill the vacancy for a District Councillor for the Sheringham North ward. Notices of election were published on 24 October, inviting nominations for the vacancy and if contested a by-election will be held on Thursday 28 November. If the election is contested, poll cards will be delivered to all registered electors within the Sheringham North ward advising them of the by-election including arrangements to request a postal or proxy vote and of the polling station for the ward which is at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Cromer Road, Sheringham.

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

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

Kelling Probus

The Club held its October meeting at the Dales Hotel, Upper Sheringham.

After our usual fellowship and tasty meal attended by 27 members and guests, our Chairman Andrew Hyatt called upon our guest speaker Howard Denver to speak.

Howard’s talk was most interesting as he covered both his original career and also his second job as a photographer of the stars of the music industry. Briefly he told us of his academic career leading to his first job working for the Ministry of Fisheries and Food as a chemist. He told us how he worked his way through the organisation to become chief chemist employing 350 people. In the 1990s Howard felt that he needed a change of career so he left MAFF and tried to get into photography, particularly in the field of photos of people in the music industry.

Howard showed us some original black and white pictures he took in his early days in the industry. Because he had always had an eye for a picture, mainly due to childhood coaching from his artist mother, he soon found an agent and started taking pictures from the pit just in front of the stage.

His agent liked his pictures and he was soon at all the big venues providing the pictures for the next day’s press.

The final part of his talk was to show us a miscellaneous mixture which included just about all the well-known stars of the last 25 years.

He was thanked by our Chairman and answered numerous questions by our fascinated members. We meet on the third Thursday of each month for lunch and a speaker - if you would like to join us contact John Whittington on 01263 820333.

FAIRTRADE AUTUMN COFFEE MORNING Our Coffee Morning was, I think, a very happy occasion.

The Banana Competition was a success - do bananas float and how many bananas do we eat in the UK in a year?

Lots of delicious Fairtrade coffee and homemade cakes, tombola (a prize every time) and a Fairtrade Stall.

Many thanks to Sainsburys and Tesco for their support.

The profits of almost £200 will go to the Fairtrade charity, Traidcraft Exchange, helping people like vegetable farmers Patrick and Featy, in Kenya - "we barely had enough to feed the family, and four of our children had to drop out of school but with Traidcraft Exchange's help I'm doing single crop planting. I've also learned about weather forecasting. Now I can plant comfortably when there will be rain." Brenda Smith (Fairtrade for Sheringham)

“It’s a recurrent misconception that a larger firm is better.”

I am Clare Mayell and I own Silver and Ward Solicitors in Sheringham. I am an extremely competent and experienced solicitor. I appreciate that any time of the year can be a difficult time fo or many people to resolve legal issues of worry and concern, for example, making a will or Lasting Power of Attorney. As I have worked for 2 larger local firms I know what clients want and expect. My charges are significantly less than other solicitors in North Norfolk or Norwich and I provide 22 years of expertise and exceptional service. I pride myself in being one of the only solicitors who offffers a FREE FIRST APPOINTMENT, so clients can come in and obtain some initial advice and discuss costs and then make an informed decision. At a larger firm you just pay more. When a client rings or walks through the door they invariably get to speak to me as this personal and direct approach is important to my clients and I. I ensure complete confidentiality is an absolute priority. I advise new clients to “shop around” as I know that my charges are significantly less than other solicitors but I can offer the same expertise, if not better. I have and can act for clients across Norrffolk and the Country as we now have the use of Skype, emails etc. so it enables me to act for clients further afield. The reason that clients, near and far, instruct Silver and Ward is because of my expertise, exceptional service and competitive costs.

“I would say to any potential client with a legal issue or worry in 2019 to come and meet me face to face for a FREE FIRST APPOINTMENT, as you have nothing to lose but all to gain.

Home visits can be arranged or appointments outside of office hours including Saturdays. 0 1263 8 23465 or email clare@silverandward.co.uk 01263 823465

Revised Plans for Holt Railway Station

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

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

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

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

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

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



turntable and the goods shed.

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

A Very Special Supper

In our culture of excess, we could be forgiven for thinking that more is more; in fact, it is very much the case that smaller portions, and better quality, are far better for health long term. The habit of indulging in the ‘buy one get one free’ trap is not a blessing.

Fish is not the cheapest ingredient to purchase, but just like meat we should be considering where we buy it, and not just how much can we get. I get my fish from fishmongers locally with good reputations for the best and freshest fish for 2 reasons; I like the personal interaction you get on the High Street, and I like to support local independent businesses. Our buying choices are powerful, and we should use them responsibly if we want to retain our wonderfully diverse High Street.

We are blessed in Holt with 2 fresh fishmongers that I definitely don’t want to lose! This is a meal we have once in a while as a special treat. It’s not going to break the bank, but is certainly more than the average weekly meal. Incidentally, fish cooked this way is literally one of the easiest and quickest meals to do; no slaving over a hot stove for hours!

It’s also a really impressive meal, with delicate flavours, fresh ingredients and great presentation, and great special occasion or dinner party dish. The trick is not to overcook. Trust the timing, and all will be well! This is also a guilt free way to enjoy chips, counting as one of your 5 a day, with all the indulgence of fries and none of the worry.

Push the boat out and serve with a beautiful crisp white wine – my favourite at the moment is Adnams White Burgundy, one of their bestsellers.

Pan Fried sea bass with sweet Potato and Celeriac Chips and long-stemmed broccoli sea bass Fillets (1 per person)

½ celeriac, peeled and cut into thin fries 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries Long stemmed broccoli (3-4 florets each) Splash olive oil Lemon pepper Fresh dill, chopped Coarse sea salt ½ lemon Knob of butter

Toss all the celeriac and potato fries in olive oil, lemon pepper and salt, coating them well. Put into



preheated hot oven (around 190°) for about 30 – 40 mins, checking that they don’t catch and turning halfway through. Meanwhile, steam your broccoli towards the end of the chips cooking – it will need about 10 mins maximum. Prepare your large frying pan for cooking the fish, by swirling a splash of olive oil in the bottom, and adding a handful of chopped dill and some lemon pepper. Once everything else is cooked, heat the pan and add in the fish skin side down. Time it, and cook for 4 minutes, then add in a knob of butter and squeeze in the lemon juice, and carefully flip the fish over. Almost immediately turn off the heat, and leave it for 1 minute, then flip back and serve, spooning over a little of the juice onto the fish.

Carolyn Burn


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

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

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

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

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

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


01603 736487


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

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

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

A Superstar Patient!

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

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

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

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

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

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

Among the recent departures from our care was a young cat called Olga. Although she arrived at 6 weeks old, the ideal age for kittens from outside situations to come into care, she had taken a long time to adjust and to learn to trust us. When her new owners contacted us offering to give her a home, we explained that she was still very timid with strangers and although we knew that she would be happy in a home eventually.it would take time and patience for this to happen. Fortunately, they were prepared to let her take all the time she needed to adjust even before they went to see her. Asked for advice as to the best way to introduce her to their home her carer suggested that when Olga arrived, they should confine her to one room with her litter tray, food and water and gradually introduce her to the rest of the house. Unfortunately, the door to the room was left open by mistake so Olga was able to get into the other rooms and went into hiding. Although it took a little time for them to locate her, her new family were not concerned by this set back and just moved everything into the room in which she was hiding. Having set up cameras in their home they knew that she was coming out as soon as they went to bed, to eat and use her litter tray. They were even aware that she visited their bedroom during the night. Within a very short time we received good news in the form of a video of this dear little cat, sitting on a chair, looking around her new home and also doing a spot of grooming. Although still not a lap cat she will now climb over her new ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; laps and also sleeps under their bed. Her new family are very happy with their new companion and we are very pleased that they were patient and let her decide when she was ready to trust them. One very good result and one happy little cat.

one was discovered on the other side of his tongue when he went for his second vaccination and although he received treatment to resolve the problem, it has not improved. Biopsies have been taken and investigations are ongoing by Toby at Westover. We are keeping in touch with Bassanioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new family Peggy, one of the older kittens at present in and are hoping that the care results of the latest tests will identify the problem and the treatment needed to resolve it.

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

If you are looking for a cat or kitten (or have any other queries) please give Stephanie a call on 01692 535858.

Alternatively, you can visit www.northwalsham.cats.org.uk for a description and photographs of the cats before giving us a call on the above number to find out where any particular cat is being fostered.

Hedgehog Haven

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

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

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

Star comedy writer behind stage “radio” show

Classic comedy is being re-tuned to raise funds for sheringham little theatre.

Radio Fun is a revue show of sketches, songs, “awful jokes and daft poems” done in the style of a live broadcast BBC radio show.

It is penned by a double act of renowned television writers, one of whom now lives in north Norfolk, who have created comic lines for stars ranging from Russ Abbott and Kenny Everett to Cannon and Ball and Frankie Howerd.

Paul Minett, from Aylsham, and Brian Leveson from Edgware met as advertising colleagues in London. They wrote comedy sketches for charity events as a hobby in the 1980s, before it became their profession.

Paul explained: “When I worked at EMI records my boss knew we wrote for fun and asked us to write the lyrics for a comedy mother in law song for Les Dawson, which never happened, but we did do a rock and roll one for Russ Abbot in 1981.”

That led to writing sketches too – for acts including The Two Ronnies, Brian Conley and Bobby Davro, as well as TV sitcoms such as Up Pompeii, and My Family and screenplays for films including The Booze Cruise which starred Martin Clunes.

He added: “When I moved to Norfolk four years ago I wanted to get involved in amateur dramatics, having done it for 30 years in Kent, so I played dad Arthur in the Winslow Boy at Sheringham Little Theatre this year.

“Brian and I had already written our Radio Fun review show for charity in Orpington – so when there was talk of a show for the Little Theatre, we thought this would be ideal,” said Paul.

The show, featuring music, sound effects and audience interaction, will be performed by a 16-strong cast from the Little Theatre Players, on 14 – 16 November at 7.30pm nightly.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “This

Tuning in – Amanda Howell, Libby Henshaw, Nona Gray and Sarah Westlake rehearse the Radio Fun show

will be a brilliant show for anyone who loves a good laugh – and to have such a talented writing team behind it, combined with the cream of local actors, raising funds for the theatre has already put a big smile on our face.”

James Kerwin

How many people do you know who go hunting for derelict buildings? Who enjoy finding their way around buildings where you have to be careful to walk where the beams and joists are if you don’t want to fall down to the floor below? And who have made a speciality of taking photographs of such buildings!

One such person is James Kerwin. In his Facebook pages he describes himself as a British fine art photographer specialising in hidden & abandoned architecture, travel & location images. And he travels all over the place to find the places he wants for his pictures.

extended photography tours to these locations. This is unusual stuff and, it has to be said, not for the faint-hearted! But however unusual, James’ photos are remarkable.

Meetings of the North Norfolk Photographic Society are normally held on 1st and 3rd Wednesdays each month at the Holt Community Centre.

Are you dreaming of a Green Christmas?

Ethical shopping is becoming an increasingly hot topic and with Christmas just around the corner local retailers are looking for ways to meet the demand for affordable products that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost the earth, or leave buyers regretting their choices.

The women behind the shop have worked together before as part of the North Norfolk Art Trail, and you may be familiar with their work from local galleries and craft fairs but this year they challenged themselves to come up with a range of unique Christmas gifts which showcase some of the best local craftsmanship. Visitors can choose from fused glass, hand bound books, handmade smocks, ceramics and art, along with cards, gift wrap and Christmas decorations.

A reduced carbon footprint is just one of the benefits of shopping locally; money spent with local independent retailers is more likely to stay in the local area and will help to support your community. Research on spending by local authorities shows that for every ÂŁ1 spent with a small or medium-sized business 63p stayed in the local economy, compared to 40p with a larger business.

The shop will offer a warm welcome to anyone looking for a truly thoughtful gift. Each day the shop will be staffed by several of the people who made the items, and if you have your own ideas you may be able to commission something in time for the big day.

Six local artisans have taken on the challenge of tempting local shoppers at Christmas with a pop-up shop at Wroxham Barns from 3 to 8 December this year.

The group are keen to build on the success of the Art Trail which started in 2017 as part of

AND ST STORAGE ORAGE LTD LTD : 01692 016 500 501

There are approximately 3,000 war memorials in East Anglia. From magnificent town memorials to simple airfield plaques, the region is dotted with reminders of its historical military connections. Whilst many are well cared for, recent research on War Memorials Online, a website which aims to record the condition of all war memorials in the UK, shows that 140 of these war memorials need extensive conservation work to preserve this vital link to the history of East Anglia.

To date, the grants distributed have ranged from ÂŁ600 to over ÂŁ3,000. Grant application deadlines are three times a year, those interested in applying will be asked to complete a simple preapplication form to check eligibility. To find out more about War Memorials Trust and how to apply for a grant please visit www.warmemorials.org

Medieval Marriage

by Miranda Marshall, Director, Hayes + Storr

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

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

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

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

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

Under the French invaders, a wife became a ‘sort of infant’ and her legal identity ceased to exist. A husband and wife on marriage The Welsh laws of the same era stated that the became one person and the wife’s property grounds for divorce were leprosy, impotence was surrendered to the husband. This included her clothes; and so, the husband would SPORT & REMEDIAL MASSAGE Clinic in Sheringham usually give his wife her clothes by his DR.

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

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

Sheringham and District Philatelic Society discovered some surprising aspects of Austria on Monday 15 October.

Dear Margaret,

Mike Clarke, one of our members, showed part of a collection started by his father which he had extended. Before stamps were issued in 1850 letters were carried throughout an extensive European empire and beyond â&#x20AC;&#x201C; examples of such letters have remarkable handwriting. Later, Austria shrank into a small, landlocked republic, but the postal service was keen for business. The Danube Steam Navigation Company carried mail. On the railways the number of the mail train was included in the cancelling mark on the envelope. Balloon postcards and an annual stamp day with special issues also generated income. Inflation between 1921 and 1924 saw the cost of sending a postcard rise 14 000%. A 1933 design was produced in triplicate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a set for each of the official languages. The impact of war featured in the display including censored and prisoner of war mail. Members warmly thanked Mike for his interesting talk and for answering questions.

I wondered if it would be possible for you to publicise the date of my forthcoming district councillor surgery in the next issue of The Sheringham Independent?

Penny Bevan Jones and myself will be holding the surgery on Saturday 23 November between 10am and 11am at Sheringham Community Centre.

Kind Regards,

Cllr Colin Heinink NNDC Sheringham South

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

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

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

We still have lots of beautiful postcards remaining so have decided to exhibit them during our popular Snowdrop Sunday events in February 2020 for a flat rate to purchase on the day and take home. We would welcome NEW postcard submissions from artists who wish to take part for the February 2020 exhibition. The same terms apply, as long as the artwork is 6by4 inches we accept any 2 or 3 dimensional medium and any theme, whether it is figurative, abstract or conceptual. Sculptural pieces can be exhibited on plinths.

Ground-breaking ceremony for new Sheringham Leisure Centre

Mike Harrison

Significant milestone as building work begins

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

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

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

On the ground floor, a dedicated ‘Changing Places’ facility will be provided which offers more space than standard accessible changing spaces and equipment including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist. A ‘pool pod’, a type of swimming pool lift, will be available for safe and dignified entry into the swimming pool, offering greater independence for people with a wide range of mobility difficulties.

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