S A N D R I N G H A M G R O U P o f PA R I S H E S From the Rectory Deanery Lent Services This year at our deanery lent services we have as our theme the sayings of Jesus from the cross. There are 7 of these, drawn from the 4 Gospels. They are:

Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do. Today you will be with me in Paradise. Behold your son, Behold your mother. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me. I thirst. Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. It is finished. There is much to be said about all the 7 sayings but if I was asked to select one for our reflections during this Lenten season then I would concentrate on the first. “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do”. Jesus asks for forgiveness for the people who are crucifying him, not only it is thought for the Roman soldiers but also for all those who through jealousy or for reasons of political necessity have brought about his crucifixion. Whether it is in relationships between countries or between communities or just between individuals it is all too often our inability to forgive that brings tension and long standing bitterness. We can all feel that we have been unfairly treated and that people have not behaved towards us as they should. It is how we react to these feelings which is so important. We can either forgive those who have wronged us and make a resolution to start again on a new footing or we can store up our anger and resentment and let these thoughts dominate our lives. The other thing about forgiving is that we are very quick to be upset by those we believe have treated us badly but much less ready to think about how we might need forgiving by others.

So as we reflect upon our lives during Lent let us resolve to follow the example of our Lord; to do our best to forgive others and have a greater understanding of our own need for forgiveness. I wish you all a very happy Easter. Jonathan

Note from Editor Dear Readers You may be wondering why the front cover is labelled April – May 2014 or not if it went unnoticed. As I enter my 3rd year as editor and now having covered 2 Christmas periods, and with extremely helpful feedback, we have decided to change the quarterly dates. It has been established that December is a very rich content edition and mid-September deadline for the Christmas edition was far too early, so with the change the deadline will now be mid November. 4


U P D AT E S We think that this will allow for even late arranged Christmas events time to get in the magazine. Hooray and about time too I hear you say – and you would be quite right!

Change From: January / February / March April / May / June July / August / September October / November / December

Change To: December / January / February March / April / May June / July / August September / October / November

A sincere thank you to all the contributors and advertisers that have helped us put together an extensive, colourful and informative magazine this last 12 months and we look forward to delivering this same high standard over the coming 12 months. Editor - Justine Cullum

We Thank You The Children’s Society I am sure the Children’s Society will be very grateful for the £570 contribution from the Sandringham Group of Parishes 2013. This is from Wolferton carol singers, West Newton Christingle service collection and the annual box opening collection. We would welcome others who would like to have a box in their home to help with the very worthy work of the Church to protect children and give them a better chance in life. Boxes are available from The Old Rectory, West Newton. Phyllis Martini (Secretary)

Kings Lynn Hospitals League of Friends The collection for Kings Lynn Hospitals League of Friends made £181.82 for 2013. I apologise to anyone who I didn't collect from. There are several local villages who have no collectors. For anyone interested please contact the Hon. Secretary on carolcrake@sky.com who will be pleased to hear from you. Please also remember that I save used postage stamps to take to the Hospital shop. Save them for me or deliver them to the shop who are always thankful. Many thanks.

Before Christmas some of the older children took part in the Church Entertainment Evening, at West Newton Village Hall, and they enjoyed performing to a packed audience. After all the events at Christmas time we turned our thoughts to Prizegiving on February 2nd. The members prepared prayers and readings and took part in the play ‘Whither Thou Goest’ the story of Ruth and Naomi. Twenty six children received prizes from Her Majesty The Queen, making it a truly memorable day. Following the church service we assembled in the Village Hall where the children recited ‘Pekes and Pollicles’ . We went on to have an excellent lunch before writing our ‘thank you’ letters. We would like to thank all who helped to make everything run smoothly. 10

F E AT U R E MOROCCO, VENICE, PROVENCE, OXFORD OR CASTLE RISING THE WEST NORFOLK ARTS CENTRE OFFERS SOME LOCAL (and some not so local) PAINTING COURSE OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2014.

In March The West Norfolk Arts Centre launched it’s 2014 Programme of Painting Courses and Holidays offering a very wide choice of media, subject matter and locations in which to learn from some of the UK’s leading art tutors. Ros and Richard Cartwright, who have run the Centre based in an old School House in the village of Castle Rising since 1993, have just returned from Morocco from a ‘check list – fact finding’ visit in preparation for a new eight day Painting Holiday they are organising there at the end of April. “We always take great care to research every aspect of an overseas trip carefully checking hotels and suitable painting locations well in advance. It sounds a pretty obvious thing to do really, but not all course providers do it” Said Richard The Morocco holiday departs from Gatwick on April 24 th returning on May 1st. “We’re back for about a week then we’re off to Venice on May the eighth. Venice is a magical place in which to paint and is always very popular with tutors and students alike. We’ve been operating our Painting Holidays there for about fourteen years now; it’s just an amazing place and, if you know your way around, you can get off the tourist track and enjoy it without someone constantly peering over your shoulder” added Richard. The Centre has always offered a broad choice of courses to satisfy a wide variety of needs and this year we will continue to offer weekend and three day courses throughout the year at the studio in Castle Rising. “This West Norfolk content of our course programme represents the core of our business and, as such, is very important to us. Courses range from traditional Oil and Watercolour Landscape Techniques , Botanical Painting, Pen & Wash and Life Drawing right the way through to an opportunity to explore abstract and contemporary methods of working” added Richard. All the courses are thoughtfully planned and taught by professional, experienced tutors - Some of the summer landscape courses include an opportunity to paint on location at the beautiful Norfolk coast with, as always, tutor back up and guidance throughout.

F E AT U R E 50th Anniversary Lunch Speech by Mrs Pam 19 February 2014 “Today, we are celebrating the 50th birthday of the Group Women’s Fellowship - and that is quite an achievement in itself. I feel it is time to look back and remind ourselves of how it all began and who started it. The Sandringham Group of Parishes was formed in 1963, under the leadership of Rev’d Pat Ashton and his wife, Mavis. In the Group letter of February 1964, Rev’d Ashton wrote: “I want to say something about a Group Women’s Fellowship. We have started one. It is open to all women. There are no rules or regulations – it is a fellowship where we seek to enjoy each other’s company and share each other’s interests. It will meet each month on the 1st Thursday at 7.30pm at Sandringham Rectory.

Each Parish (except Castle Rising as yet) has a secretary: Flitcham

Mrs Cross

Hillington

Mrs Woodhouse Jr

West Newton

Mrs Davidson

Appleton

Mrs Simmonds

Babingley

Mrs B Rye

Wolferton

Mrs Woodhouse

For the next 6 years Mrs Ashton moulded the G.W.F and showed us how it was run. It always opened with a prayer. Before Mrs Ashton left Sandringham after Easter 1970, she told us that whatever else happened we must keep the GWF going. Behind the scenes, Rev’d Ashton had asked me to keep GWF running as it was one of the things in the Group that was successful. We continued to meet at Sandringham Rectory for a time but our permanent meeting place became Abbey Farm in 1972. In 2006 (34 years later,) my husband and I began to wonder what would happen to the GWF if I was no longer at Abbey Farm. To safeguard it, we thought it would be wise to find another venue where the GWF could meet. Over the years, we had always had some representatives – just like the early days – that we called our committee and these ladies came with me to look at various possible venues. We decided that Castle Rising Reading Room was our best option. Our first meeting was held at Castle Rising in March 2008 at 7.30pm. We stayed at Castle Rising for the next five years but it was during this time that members began to dislike driving in the dark. So we changed our meetings to afternoons. When everyone had got used to that change, we were invited to have a look at Wolferton Club, where there was more room, better facilities and adequate storage space. In 2013 meetings moved to Wolferton, where we are now quite happily settled. Cont. on page 17

The Frequency column shows the percentage of people in Sandringham. For example, a frequency of 13.5802 in Sandringham means that 13.5802% of the people in Sandringham on census day were called Sayer.

The Index column shows the relative probability of finding someone called Sayer in Sandringham, compared with the probability of finding them anywhere in Britain as a whole. An index of 1 means that if you pick someone at random from Sandringham, you have exactly the same probability of picking someone called Sayer as if you picked at random from the whole of the UK. If the index is higher than 1, then you are more likely to find someone called Sayer here than if you picked from the UK as a whole, and if it's lower then you are less likely. The actual figure shows the level of probability - for example, a figure of 2 would indicate that you are twice as likely to find someone called Sayer here than in the UK as a whole, and 10 would make it ten times as likely. The index value of 1037.7358 in Sandringham means that you are 1037.7358 times as likely to find someone with the surname of Sayer in Sandringham than you would be in the whole of the UK at the time of the 1881 census.

F E AT U R E Everyone here today must be thanked for supporting the GWF because without the members there would be no fellowship. The committee must be thanked, for they all carry out their tasks efficiently and I rely on them greatly. The car drivers must be thanked for bringing the members to the meetings and the ladies of Castle Rising and now Wolferton must be thanked for getting our venues ready for our meetings, and seeing that they are left in order after most of us have gone home. Cont. from page 13

In the past we have celebrated our 21 st, 40th, 45th and, today, we are celebrating our 50th Anniversary. I wonder what we will be doing when we reach our emerald celebration and will the GWF reach that milestone! Time will tell……...” Pam Cross, GWF Chairman NHS Summary Care Records What’s happening? As of 18 February, care.data data uploads have been delayed for a further 6 months until September 2014. Under changes to legislation, your GP can now be required to upload personal and, more importantly, identifiable information from the medical record of every patient in England to central servers at the Health and Social Care Information Centre. Once this information leaves your GP practice, your doctor will no longer be in control of what data is passed on or to whom. This information will include diagnoses, investigations, treatments and referrals as well as other things you may have shared with your doctor including your weight, alcohol consumption, smoking and family history. Each piece of information will be identifiable as it will be uploaded with your NHS number, date of birth, post code, gender and ethnicity. This data will be available to a whole range of organisations that include – but are not limited to – research bodies, universities, think tanks, “information intermediaries”, charities and private companies. So what can I do? ACT NOW! If you do not want confidential, identifiable information from your medical records to be uploaded and passed on for purposes other than your medical care you can opt out by telling your doctor All you actually need do is write a letter or download a simple form at www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk/optout/optout.pdf - instructing your doctor to opt you out, which you can fill in and post or drop into your surgery reception for their attention. If you have any concerns about the sharing of your data – opt out now. You can always opt back in when any concerns have been comprehensively alleviated. 17

01553 631611 susan@contours1.fsnet.co.uk The Old Stables, Castle Rising, Kings Lynn, PE31 6AG www.contoursbeautysalon.co.uk Incinerator Update This April the County Council are due to vote again whether to abandon the incinerator. Since the last vote (28 th October 2013) much has changed. Last time Council officials incorrectly claimed, ending the contract would bankrupt the Council. Since then emails, from the Government Department responsible for Local Government, showed the threat of bankruptcy was in fact false and at least two cabinet members knew this. Instead of alerting their colleagues they kept

I S S U E S quiet and supported the myth of “Financial Armageddon”. Norfolk’s leader has now written to try and pressure Eric Pickles in to making the planning decision before the Council vote. The County officials behind the incinerator are finding it increasingly difficult to justify continuation. At £105 per tonne the ‘Willows’ would be the most expensive incinerator on this scale anywhere in the UK. Official figures show the UK average cost is £78 per tonne. Alternative offers could save up to £8.5M annually if used instead of the ‘Willows’. Even if Norfolk had to pay a ridiculous £20-£30M penalty to abandon the contract it is still much cheaper to get out than pay ‘over the odds’ for 25years. Some authorities negotiated to minimise or avoid expensive compensation clauses. For example, when the Sherwood Forest incinerator failed to get planning permission, Nottinghamshire County Council did not have to pay any compensation; they even managed to recover £2million in legal costs. Those who ‘negotiated’ the ‘Willows’ contract ‘on our behalf’ have some explaining to do. Despite the failure of some councillors, Alex Kemp has stuck to her pledge to fight the incinerator. Some councillors seem to think ‘crossing their fingers’ is a ‘good enough’ effort, they would do well to follow Councillor Kemps example; she finally left her party to continue the fight free of the party whip.

The programme will give them a great opportunity to explore home swapping, different property, and local foods/trades and sights around the UK. They would love to feature some people from the Sandringham Group of Parishes in the programme. Do you live in an interesting home you’d be happy to swap with someone elsewhere in the UK for a short break?
