It has gone from 50 dippers in 2017 to a record 517 brave dippers taking to the water this year. Bucket collectors raised a total of ÂŁ2,200 today for Sheringham RNLI with around 3000 spectators estimated, record numbers!

Sheringham New Year's Day Dip 2020 - A Record Year

Continued from front cover...

The organisers would like to thank the Sheringham Carnival Committee for their help in marshalling & providing First Aiders, also to HM Coastguard & Sheringham RNLI for a team ashore and for launching Sheringham Lifeboat as support.

Thank you also to the bucket collectors and of course to the RNLI mascot Stormy Stan. Of course the biggest thanks has to go to the dippers and their supporters who turn up year after year to make the dip such a successful community event.

decided to move the dip for future years a little further west to the wider beaches opposite ‘Marble Arch’ in Sheringham, this will provide much more beach for the dippers and lots more viewing space for the spectators.

“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 for 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 24 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 info ormed 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 Norfolk 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 2020 to come and meet me fa ace to face for a FREE FIRST APPOINTMENT, as you have nothing to lose but all to gain.

New horizons for COAST Arts Help shape our future at open meeting on Friday 31 January, 10.30am – 12pm at The Belfry Centre for Music & Arts in Overstrand

COAST Arts, an arts charity based in the Cromer and Sheringham area of North Norfolk, is holding an open meeting about its future on 31 January at The Belfry Centre for Music and Arts in Overstrand. The meeting will take place from 10.30am – 12pm.

Amanda Hensby, Secretary of COAST Arts, says “We have some ideas that we’d like to share, and we want to hear your ideas on how we can best support and contribute to a local vibrant arts scene. Everyone is welcome and if you have an interest in any form of visual or performing art, or you have links within the community with any arts group or school, please come along.”


After 10 years we want to do more, so the old ship is having a refit. We’re hoping to pick up some new crew in the different unexplored ports we intend to visit.”

Merchants’ Place, 16 Church Street, Cromer, NR27 9ES From 5.00 pm, 15 minutes free advice with a solicitor

The trustees of COAST Arts are holding this open meeting to gather more ideas for activities and events that can be staged throughout the year as well as during the autumn festival, to increase working in partnership with other groups to enable the charity to broaden its scope, and to recruit more individuals to contribute to COAST Arts’ work.

Solicitors specialise but may be able to give general advice on other matters Further dates: January 2020 to end of April 2020 January – Family - Tuesday 21st, February - Tuesday 4th – Family, Tuesday 11th - Wills & Probate - Tuesday 18th – Employment - Tuesday 25th - Family March - Tuesday 3rd – Family - Tuesday 10th – General - Tuesday 17th - Wills & Probate - Tuesday 24th – Family - Tuesday 31st – Family April - Tuesday 7th – Family - Tuesday 14th – Employment - Tuesday 21st – General Any queries or to make an appointment please call: 01603 496623 Please note: occasionally advice sessions are subject to changes

Every October since 2010 COAST Arts has organised an arts festival in and around Cromer and Sheringham as well as supporting and coordinating other arts events throughout the year. Malcolm Birtwell, a trustee of the charity, says: “Over the years we’ve braved the storms and had all hands to the pumps. We’ve cast our nets wide, been fishers of all arts and always made it safely back to port, if a little battered at times.

Amanda continues “Our goal is to deliver a varied programme of art, photography, drama, dance and all types of music, through workshops, exhibitions, films, concerts and theatre shows, all year round for local people to enjoy and take part in. Hopefully the meeting will result in input from schools, young people and all those with an interest in art in its broadest sense.”

So far the winter has been wet and windy and the trees are skeletal and stark. However, below the ground the

Come February, the nodding heads of Thorpe Marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snowdrops will be peeking above ground to see who is around. Why not come and welcome their return on Sundays throughout February. Not only can you enjoy the glorious display of the galanthus in the churchyard but be welcomed inside our warm

church by a feast, both visual and cake-based!

Once again, we will be hosting a series of art exhibitions. Woodgate Nursery and Foundry will be selling a selection of beautiful spring plants and hand-crafted metalwork. We will also be selling honey produced by bees from our Hazel Grove by local bee keepers Ken & Theresa Caves. Woodland crafts from Wrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Covert Woodland Restoration, unique glass gardens and terrariums by Moongazer Glass Gardens and willow work by SilverWood Studio will also be for sale.

The funds raised help to keep the church and churchyard in good order, available for community use and, most importantly, open as a place of worship for the people of the village and further afield. Last year the snowdrops attracted over 1200 visitors over four Sundays.

Our many volunteers come from outlying villages, Trunch, Southrepps, Northrepps and Mundsley as well as Thorpe Market. Without them none of our fund-raising efforts would be possible at the church, especially the homemade cakes that have been so much in demand that we produced our own collection of recipes for sale.

For further information please contact the Churchwarden, Martin Castle, at mdcastle57 or on 07817 027589.

Exhibiting artists for each Sunday will be 2 February three local artists, Rosemary Fereday, Antonia Martinez & Tony Lee, 9 February Nine Photographers, 16 February Rebecca Hitchens and 6by4 Secret Postcard Fundraiser and 23 February IMPRESSED, Norfolk Printmakers

At 5pm crowds waited in anticipation for the fireworks to begin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and once again they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint!

Sheringham Football Club

Sheringham FC v Fakenham Town 28/12/19 Another year comes to an end And what a cracking show Was put on down at Weybourne Road It's four wins in a row! A mascot led the Shannocks out, The bumper crowd pitch side, Focused their eyes in eager mood And noise was amplified. Although the first half - scrappy(ish) (Chances at both ends : missed), The match-winning moment arrived After a cheesy 'twist!' Big Lawrence - straight after the break Turned past his man with ease, And powered home to do the biz 'Grate' work by Mr Cheese! The atmosphere was tasty and 'Streat Kitchen' was the same, Mouth-watering food and football A yummy derby game! With Ghosts creating chances and Ref whipping out his card, The Shannocks army - to a man Defended their rear guard! Captain Cox arranged his troops Crosby - man of the match Drove on the lads; for Fakenham Though - nothing 'real' would hatch! They huffed and puffed but brave we stood Our wall would not erode, A hard-fought win, but all the best To our friends down the road. It's two clean sheets now on the trot In home games for the Reds, Up the league we soar once more But on will stay our heads! We'll climb the table rung by rung And into the new year, March on we shall in cheerful tone With not a thing to fear! It's over eighty miles next week When we land in Cornard; A Happy New Year to you all From this Sheringham bard! Tony Bolster

What’s On... Gothic Tales

The last meeting of the Society’s 50th year took place on Monday 9 December. Members were invited to put up five sheets of philatelic material to be judged by all present that evening. The voting system, devised by Andrew McCandlish, gave each person three votes in order of their preference. This certainly made it easier to select one’s favourite three displays, instead of having to choose just one.

The prize for the best display for a new entrant was awarded to Tim Turner. However, Tim’s entry of Bermuda Key Type high value, King George VI also merited the trophy for the overall best display of the evening!

In 2nd place was Jim Farrell’s display of French stamps of 1946 to 1958, depicting historical figures and 19th century celebrities.

Tony Taylor presented the story of the Battle of Waterloo, as portrayed in stamps from a variety of countries with connections with that famous event.

The society’s chairman, Gerry Smith, took the fourth prize with stamps from Papua New Guinea from 1965 to 1969.

The Gallant Gardener - Home Cold Composting

Hello everyone, in this issue I would like to focus on composting at home or on the allotment. I have been gardening for many years and am a Master Composter with Norfolk County Council and Garden Organic.

At this time of the year, the compost heap slows down and just ticks over, as it normally relies on warmth as well as rain to keep it working with all the living organisms working away inside. Whether you have a plastic compost bin or wooden framed composter or indeed any other type, the principles are the same.

The bin should be sited directly on the ground, in a sunny position and if possible be able to take moisture from the rain, with some plastic bins, drill a few holes at the top to allow more air and water in.

Many people ask me why their compost heap is a green sludge or why the material is not breaking down. The answer is always the same, there is a need for a 50/50 balance between brown materials and green materials. Layering the material is important and then mixing it in. If you have an abundance of grass


cuttings then it is important to put paper, cardboard or dry material in between or it will rot down into a black liquid. Tear up the material and it will breakdown quicker. Magazines now all have vegetable ink so no worries here with contamination.

When it comes to prunings, I use the principle of nothing thicker than my finger should go in. You can put leaves in but you need to realise that they will take about 18 months to rot down and to give good leaf mould. If you have alot of leaves use a different bin or put them in plastic bags and pierce the bags with a fork to let the wet in. They will then break down.

so what can i put in the bin? Greens: Vegetable peelings, flowers, fruit, stalks, bracken, coffee grounds, comfrey leaves, prunings, grass

! N O

mowings, nettles and annual weeds but not their seed heads. Browns : Paper, cardboard, junk mail, egg boxes & shells, hair, straw, tea leaves, wool or natural fibre jumpers and wood ash. (Not coal fire ash).

Christmas trees which are shredded and wrapping paper that is not plastic, foil or covered with glitter is ok.

I would also advise to avoid cooked food as this might attract rats, to avoid rats coming in, you can put fine wire netting underneath the plastic bins, this will put them off as they are mainly looking for warmth and cover.

To speed up your compost, you can turn it over from one heap into another every few months. I tend to take the lazy way and it turns into black gold in about 9 months. This can be used as a mulch on the flower bed or dug into the vegetable patch.

Missing a Parent by Maria Endall. family solicitor,

When a child loses a parent, through death, divorce or separation, the impact is often significant and long-lasting.

This is bad enough for a child whose loss is owing to the death of a parent, but what if one parent is preventing contact with the other post-separation? No matter how well intended a parent might consider this sort of intervention to be, it has been well researched that the consequences of such actions can have the opposite effect, and cause the child unnecessary suffering and long-term damage.

Not involving yourself in your child’s life, or being prevented from seeing your child by the other parent, can cause feelings of rejection and grief for your child. To make matters worse, the child may feel unable to grieve properly if they have been drawn into conflict.

Where one parent prevents the other from having a normal, positive relationship with

a child, it is known in family law proceedings as Hayes + Storr ‘parental alienation’ or ‘intractable hostility’ and is considered extremely damaging to the child and is increasingly being recognised as a form of child abuse.

In certain cases where parental alienation is established, the courts will increasingly consider transferring residency of the child to the alienated parent in order to reunify the child with that important missing link in their life, and address the emotional trauma they have suffered up to that point. The courts aim is to ensure that both children and adults are kept safe, and to enable children to maintain relationships with both parents where it is safe and in the child’s best interests to do so.

No matter how parents may feel about one another after a separation, the importance of keeping the child’s well-being as the main focus, cannot be understated. It should be remembered that it is the child’s right to have

Weather with Ned Nimbus

a positive relationship with both his or her parents, and it is both parents’ responsibility to ensure this happens.

Two of the past three months turned out to be a lot less settled and wetter than predicted but overall 2019 didn’t stray much from predictions with no weather type hanging around for too long plus a few very warm days which we always expect. Rainfall was lower than average but the later stages of the year made up for the shortfall.

The next three months will have a mixed pressure pattern but no long periods of one type of weather. March could be the coldest of the three months. There will be mild and cold spells in this mixed pattern but whether they break records remains to be seen.

January 18.8, February 19.6 and March 25. Coldest records are January -27.2, February -27.2 and March -22.8 .Average temperatures for January, February and March are 7, 8and 9 respectively Ned Nimbus

Sheringham church’s Shed project nears completion

The Sheringham Shed project, set up by Lighthouse Charity Trust on behalf of Lighthouse Community Church, has been making great strides in recent weeks, and is hoping to open early in 2020.

The Shed’s premises are the former St John Ambulance Hall in Wyndham Street, Sheringham. Lighthouse Charity Trust received a grant of £200,000 to purchase the building and reroof it back in 2018. They have also had gifts and grants of over £100,000 for getting the building equipped and fit for purpose, including £15,000 from the North Norfolk Big Society Fund.

The two-storey building has been re-roofed and has undergone extensive refurbishment. The work has included new electrics, new heating and lighting, installation of a lift for those with limited mobility, fitting out two new toilets (including one for the disabled), new flooring and carpeting, as well as fire and intruder alarms plus CCTV.

“We want people to find new friends, build relationships, improve their wellbeing and to discover how to live life to the full. “I think the generosity of our funders is an indication of how important this initiative will be for the local community.”

If anyone knows of a kitchen in nice condition, which is being taken out or someone who has some good quality tools which might be of use to the project, please contact or phone the Shed office on 01263 824020. Visit

New Therapeutic Centre at Sheringham Woodfields School progresses well

“It’s been a long trek but at last the end is in sight”, says Daniel Ward who heads up the Sheringham Shed initiative, “Sheringham Shed will be a meeting place for men and women, especially those who are lonely or isolated, lacking self-confidence, with low self-esteem, anxious or depressed.”

Since the construction of the new £1.4m Therapeutic Centre at Sheringham Woodfields School started in September 2019, builders Draper and Nichols have been able to make good progress despite the autumnal weather.

“When Shed is fully up and running, we will be offering facilities for practical and creative activities, such as woodwork and art, in the downstairs workshop”, added Daniel. “Upstairs will be for more recreational activities including, amongst other things darts, pool, indoor crazy golf, as well as table games and movie nights.

Although there was a two week break in construction activity over the Christmas/ New Year holiday period, it is planned that the roof will be in place by the end of February 2020. This will ensure that the interior works can continue regardless of the weather, keeping works on schedule for a June 2020 completion and hand-over.

Matthew Smith MBE, Business Manager at Sheringham Woodfields School, said "It's good to see construction of the Therapeutic Centre progressing so well. The majority of the large deliveries associated with this project have now been successfully completed, and I believe this has been achieved without any inconvenience to local residents."

He continued "At the start of the new term in January 2020, 10 new pupils joined the school. These are the first of the additional 24 places created as part of the Therapeutic Centre development. By the time the project is completed, we will have created 14 new jobs for teachers and support staff associated with the additional pupils, all of whom will have been recruited locally."

Kelling Probus

The Kelling Probus Christmas/Ladies Lunch was held at the usual venue, The Dales Country Club on Thursday 19 December.

The food and service were first class- we've never been let down yet! A very convivial afternoon and a chance to introduce our respective partners and spouses to members and take up old friendships in a very comfortable atmosphere.

Kelling Probus would like to wish everyone a very prosperous and happy New Year.

Again our warmest thanks and best wishes to our hosts the Dales for a superb afternoon.

Hedgehog Haven

Since Crackers’ (who is doing well) arrival, Charlie, Humbug and little George have come into care.

Jack Broughton was our speech giver, offering some fine anecdotes and humour.

George was found on 30 December at only 250g. He was the last admission of 2019. He had a heavy lungworm burden and is on medication. Due to the lungworm he isn't inclined to eat so, to encourage his appetite, I am syringe feeding him approximately three hourly, which is helping to keep his weight stabilised.

We are most grateful to Bridget Carter for her well delivered and humorous reply.

North Walsham and District Branch of Cats Protection

We ended the year with good news regarding Dave the little cat who had been missing since April and now have more good news for another lovely cat called Boris.

When walking their dog near woodland, a young couple found they were being followed by a cat who had a very sore eye and was looking quite thin. They obtained a cat basket and were checking with neighbours to see if they knew the cat or had seen it in the area recently.

One of their ports of call was Julie’s workplace, and at this point Julie became involved. As she had no kittens in care at present, she contacted us to see how we could help. It was agreed that she should take the cat home, check for a microchip and if there was one, to ring me so that I could check for an owner.

Once again, we found that the cat was chipped and was registered to a home in Suffolk. I rang the contact details and learnt that the cat had been staying with relations close by when it went missing in October. Although not able to come straight away, the owners were only too happy to come and collect Boris and take him home to Suffolk. A picture of this very lucky cat was posted on our Facebook page by his owner and he has now been to the vets to be checked and to have his eye treated. Without the intervention of the couple concerned, who recognised that Boris was a genuine stray, he would still be out there so we thank them on Boris’s behalf.

The pens from Briston are now up and already have cats in residence with Caroline and Holly. We thank Caroline’s husband Ray for laying the base, tiling it and connecting it to the electricity supply. At present Octopussy is resident in one of the pens but this will not be for long as he will shortly be moving from the pen to take up permanent residence in the house. We are so pleased that this very special cat has finally

landed on his paws although I do believe the vet has advised he needs to watch his weight. The young cats in the other pen are two that came into care as very frightened older kittens who we knew would need lots of attention to ensure they adjusted to life with a family. They are now receiving this from both Caroline and Holly and already Izzie and Maddie are enjoying having a fuss and being stroked and Izzie will already let Holly pick her up for a cuddle. These little cats originally came in with their four brothers two of which have already been rehomed. Boris - safe, warm and well fed at Although it was acceptable when Julie's while waiting for his owner they first arrived, as they were not to come and collect him fully grown, guidelines from the veterinary department at Head Office indicated they needed to be separated, as they would need more space and it also ensures they receive individual attention.

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 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.

The first Redwings were reported by Mark (3 Oct) as well as a Kingfisher and the following day he found a Yellow-browed Warbler. Another Yellow-browed Warbler, a Brambling, a Fieldfare and about 100 Redwings were noted by Mark (7 Oct). Up to three Yellow-browed Warblers were present (10 Oct) and Mark also saw the Kingfisher back on the pond (15 Oct) plus 15 Brambling overflying west. A Green Sandpiper


made up of females who give birth to live young who are genetically clones of their mother. No male Giant Willow Aphid has ever been found. It is still a mystery as to where these aphids go when they leave the tree although one possibility is that they go down into the root system.

Humming-bird Hawkmoth at rest

As always day by day notes from the Commons can be found on and as the winter season passes will the mild wet weather continue or will some ‘beast from the east’ return and catch us and the wildlife out as we await spring. Francis Farrow, Hon. Warden – Beeston Common SSSI/SAC

All Saints Gresham secures National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant

All Saints Gresham, through a subcommittee of its PCC, The Friends of All Saints Gresham, has been successful in their bid for grant funding for their project to repair and renovate and to widen communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of the 1000 year old, round towered, All Saints Church in Gresham.

Made possible by National Lottery players, the ÂŁ140,900 project funding received will enable the Friends to implement the two main aims of their project.

Urgent works of repair and improvement to the church buildings will be carried out including the installation of a new rainwater dispersal system, external repairs to the north chancel roof, tower, windows and external walls and internal renovation including re-plastering the nave. Work is expected to commence in the Spring of 2020 and to take approximately six months to complete.

The improved building will be developed as a community hub, through a programme of events to improve the wellbeing and cohesion of the community in the widest sense, ensuring

Arts & Crafts

that as many people as possible can appreciate, understand and enjoy the heritage of All Saints Gresham.

The programme of events will include the creation of an online data resource for those tracing their family history, using information from the historic graveyard; a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guide to the church, produced by pupils from Gresham Village School; a series of lectures on local history focussing on areas connected with the heritage of the church and a programme of mixed arts courses for those who are sometimes overlooked in society. The churchyard will also be used by the school as an outdoor classroom and the church will be available as a concert and exhibition space for the community.

The Friends of All Saints are very grateful to National Lottery players and all those within the local and wider community of Gresham and North Norfolk for their support and previous fundraising for this project. All Saints Gresham will become a warm and welcoming hub, playing an active and diverse role in the life of its community.

Commenting on the award, Julia Drury, chair of the Friends of All Saints, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re absolutely delighted that, thanks to National Lottery players, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received this support, from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. All Saints Church has been an integral and iconic landmark within the village and the North Norfolk landscape for more than 1000 years. Now we can really believe our vision will come to fruition: the dry and refurbished church building will provide an enhanced environment both for church services and a wide variety of social, educational and cultural opportunities, for the community and visitors to Gresham, for the next 1000 yearsâ&#x20AC;?.

Holt and District Probus Club

The Feathers in Holt hosted the first meeting in 2020 of Holt and District Probus Club on 2 January.

The Club Chairman, John Mangan, presented an illustrated talk about the Vulcan Vulcan with Red Arrows bomber aircraft which was developed soon after the Second World War primarily to carry and deliver nuclear weapons.

John showed pictures of the various prototypes produced during development and of the aircraft as ultimately produced. Although (fortunately) the Vulcans were never called upon to deliver an atomic (or hydrogen) bomb, they did drop more traditional bombs on the runway at Port Stanley during the Falklands war. The idea was to make the runway unusable by the Argentinians and two Vulcans flew that

immense distance with air refuelling assistance and one of them successfully completed this major mission.

Vulcans were also used as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;test-bedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the development of engines for other aircraft such as the TSR2 and Concorde. There are no Vulcans flying now, but there are several as static exhibits, including one at the City of Norwich Aviation Museum, where it is possible to enter the flight deck. Meetings of Holt and District Probus Club are normally held at lunchtime on the first Thursday each month at the Feathers Speaker John Mangan in Holt. Enquiries about membership (or about a trial visit - visitors are most welcome) should be made to Secretary Alan Holmes 01263 710782. refer also to

Pigmentation treatments from Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic

Comm munity Chur C ch


A uniform skin tone and texture is desired by many irrespective of their colour and considered a sign of skin health.

4MG@ =TK= L=F

Pigmentation can have a number of causes such as excessive sun exposure, genetics, injuries, inflammation or disorders such as melasma. Melasma is a commonly acquired disorder of hyperpigmentation. Treatment of melasma has been traditionally centered on the use of daily sunscreen and topical bleaching creams or chemical peels.

,C@Ki`TH MLBRHJD?JĹ ?BA=G@? H ZZZAA 62 Cromer Road, Sheringham, NR26 8RT

www.lighthousesher www.lighthouse

A careful evaluation and diagnosis of cause of pigmentation is important. Response to treatment can be variable and recurrence very common so some kind of maintenance such as long-term use of sunscreen and lightening agents is often recommended. Most benign pigmentation and pigmented lesions however can be treated very successfully.

We can evaluate the location and depth of pigmentation in the skin and this guides what treatments we may recommend. This may include sun protection, skin creams such as lightening creams, vitamin creams and gentle skin peels. Recently a variety of lasers have been used. We have had great results with our lasers but in general 3-5 sessions of treatments are required. These laser treatments are gentle and do not require social downtime. We also use fractional lasers in which case skin may be pink for a few days.


,,,- ". /

Coltishall Cosmetic Clinic is well equipped with multiple lasers and non-laser technology so we can device a customized treatment programme based on your unique characteristics. There are also many innovative gentle treatments such as mesotherapy on offer so why not come and see us and start your journey towards a flawless skin. Call 01603 736487 or log on to the website

Christmas was celebrated in style on the golf course at The Links in West Runton, with golfers dressing up in festive attire for the annual Christmas Cracker competition.

Over the years, golfers have been known for wearing some natty jumpers and bright trousers and this event showed that anything goes.

There was a full array of Christmas jumpers, plenty of Father Christmas outfits and hats and even the odd elf.
