SHOULDHAM NEWS Volume 12 No.2, 2013/14

A Christmas to celebrate! It has been an incredible year for our village. In the dark days of winter 2012/13, the King’s Arms was unlit and had been empty for half a year. It looked almost certain that we would lose our last remaining pub. The story since then has been well documented: in local, regional and even the national press. Shouldham’s tremendous community spirit has defeated the odds, attracting bountiful praise (and some envy!) from far and wide. The success has been magnificent, and we are now set to own the King’s Arms before Christmas. Our share issue exceeded its £150,000 target, with 189 people – the vast majority of them from Norfolk, and most from our local area – generously investing in Shouldham’s heritage and its future. So impressed was the government-funded body, the Social Investment Business, that it has awarded a grant that more than matches our investment and fundraising, giving us enough money to buy the King’s Arms outright and also to refurbish it, turning the building into a true community pub for all of Shouldham, Shouldham Thorpe, our neighbouring villages and our friends from further afield. SOKA, now renamed Support Our King’s Arms (because we’ve saved it!) is anxious to ensure that the pub serves our entire community, making no distinction between shareholders and others. Indeed, there is now ample opportunity for more people to join our project. Over the winter, we plan to have community work days, when everyone can lend a hand: whether it be transforming the garden, painting the interior, or giving the place a good scrub. By thus saving money, we’ll give our pub every chance of success – and, remember, after shareholders have been paid a modest rate of interest, all surplus profits will be reinvested in the pub or in other community projects in our locality. But first things first: before the hard work of refurbishment begins, we hope to have a celebration at the pub. Keep an eye out for posters advertising the date. Continued on page 3

A huge number of people deserve thanks for helping us achieve our goal, but special mention should go to Andrew and Bridget at the Chalk & Cheese, who have provided the ‘command headquarters’ for our campaign, along with excellent hospitality throughout the year. Unsung heroes, too, are the long-suffering folk who bring you Shouldham News four times a year: our advertisement manager John Dovey, our designer Emma Gibson and our team of distributors – Mick Bentley, Helen Brown, John Dovey, Emma Gibson, Ann Hullah, Steve Jones, Keith Matthews, Chris Lawrence, Jennifer Malby, John McGourty, Linda Peake and Julie Walkey. We would like to wish them, and all of our readers, a Merry Christmas and an exciting New Year. See you all in the King’s Arms!

Autumn Quizzes In addition to organising two seasonal quizzes here in Shouldham, we (the writers) also compete in five or six other such functions across the year in the local area. It is interesting to see how other places run these events, which range from the most efficient, hi-tech affairs, to others that can be somewhat chaotic. A really novel Bistro Café quiz was held at Boughton church and community centre in October, which was most enjoyable. It combined an excellent French casserole and dessert (provided by Pippa Blackall) with some demanding questions set by quizmaster, Rev Barbara Burton. If this event is repeated, we would certainly urge the more ardent quiz-goers to take part. Nearer home, our own Autumn Quiz was held in the Village Hall on the evening of Saturday, 9th November. A very good turnout of 12 tables duly applied themselves to questions set by Ann and Brian Hullah – the production of which was described by one contestant as: ‘the products of a very twisted mind’! Despite the groans, oohs and aahs, another convivial session seemed to have been had by most; and it was encouraging to see quite a number of new faces. Eventually, Geoffrey Hipperson’s table emerged as the outright victors, to add to other triumphs that they have enjoyed both here and at various other quizzes in this locality. (It seems hardly feasible that we have been organising this annual November quiz since 1997 – and several tables have attended them all. Well done, indeed!) With very sincere thanks to everybody who took part, gave raffle prizes, helped at the door, etc, All Saints’ PCC gratefully acknowledges the welcome sum of £275 for church funds from this event. Ann & Brian Hullah

Remembrance Sunday The Service of Remembrance was held this year on 10th November at 10.45am, led by Lay Reader Anne Clarke, who nobly also played the organ! We were very pleased to have serving members from RAF Marham with their families attending, and the congregation was pleasantly larger than in recent years. During the Act of Remembrance beside the War Memorial, the names of the Fallen were read by Churchwarden Brian Hullah, then wreaths were laid by the RAF personnel, and by Wendy Ash and Louisa Woodbine on behalf the Royal British Legion. In her sermon, Anne concentrated on the significance of the day by way of poetry, reading from Rupert Brooke’s The Soldier and Wilfred Owen’s Strange Meeting. She contrasted these with two modern poems (one loaned by Wendy Ash, and the other by a local poet, Barry Davies) reflecting on our reasons to despise the horrors of war. This latter point should remind us that Christians must always aim for reconciliation of conflicts, while recognising the sacrifice and heroism that our servicemen and women render daily on behalf of everyone. Our thanks to all who attended or contributed to this short, yet moving, service.

Go Sober for October After a long dry month I raised £101 for Macmillan by giving up drinking for the month of October. Donations still welcome either through me 01366 348199 or https://www.gosober.org.uk/profile/emmagibson Emma Gibson

Coffee morning fills the coffers The Macmillan Coffee morning, held at St Martin at Shouldham School on September 27th, raised a grand total of £246.43. Acknowledging Shouldham’s contribution, Katherine Donnelly ‘Head Coffee Lady’ at Macmillan wrote: ‘We want to give a big thank you to you and all the lovely people who came to your coffee morning. Together you’ve done something truly special.’ Thanks again to all those who helped and supported the event. Jane Rose-Land


Christmas Trees in Church We are, again, planning to fill Shouldham’s All Saints’ Church with small Christmas trees (real or artificial) in memory of loved ones – or simply for decoration. These need to be in church before the service of Nine Lessons and Carols, which is to be held on Thursday, 19th December at 7pm. The church will be candlelit for this, and the decorated trees add significantly to the atmosphere of the occasion. Light, seasonal refreshments will be served after the Carol Service, which is for all age-groups. Please let Ann Hullah (347814/annhullah@btinternet.com) know if you would like to provide a tree. NB Midnight Mass will be held this year at All Saints’, commencing at 11.30pm on Christmas Eve.

The wonder of Zumba When I first saw the word Zumba, on a poster in Shouldham village, I walked past imagining sylph -like young ladies sweating themselves into a slither to the tune of frantic heavy beat music. So I walked on! However, when I heard of a new Zumba group being formed to be called ‘Golden Zumba’ and to be held from 6.30pm until 7.30pm every Wednesday in Shouldham Village Hall, I was tempted to find out more. The best way to do this, I decided, was to go along and not only see for myself but try it out. I loved it! We don’t work ourselves into a slither, but dance to various types of music and gently stretch those bones and muscles that have been generally curled up in a chair too much during the week. It was great fun, and, in those early summer months, we worked away with the Village Hall windows open and the curtains pulled back. We were told by the Shouldham lady who lives opposite the hall, that her little daughter was so fascinated by the Zumba goings on, that the girl had gone upstairs and was standing on the bed, looking across the road at us and copying the movements. Well surely this in itself proves that this particular class appeals to all ages. Now, the nights are colder and darker and the windows firmly closed and the curtains pulled together, but the fun continues as we dance our different routines to music from Spain, from the Caribbean and… well, all sorts of warm places. What a lovely activity Golden Zumba has turned out to be, and so cheery and sunny – and only £4 a session. We hope that more people will think of joining. They just need to turn up. Chris Lawrence

Congratulations Callum! On Thursday, November 14th, Callum Anthony John Gammie was officially adopted by Alexandra Gammie of the Green. Shouldham News sends hearty congratulations to them both!


Christmas in Shouldham Three of our most traditional events will once again be taking place this Christmastime, starting with Carols by Candlelight at Shouldham Church, which this year is on Thursday 19th December at 7pm and will also offer the chance to see the decorated Christmas trees. Mulled wine and refreshments will be served after the service. Everyone welcome. Next comes Carols Around the Tree, on Shouldham Green on Monday 23rd December at 7pm. Bring your voices and a torch! There will be a collection for a local charity if you wish to give. Finally, Midnight Mass will be celebrated at All Saints’ Church, Shouldham, starting at 11.30pm on Christmas Eve.

Night riding At the end of May 2014, I will be cycling with Sue and my daughter Natalie and loads of other women across London throughout the night. This is in aid of Breast and Ovarian Cancer. I am sure that some of you may have been affected by this, or know someone who has. The more we raise, the more investigations can be made. We start from Windsor Racecourse, through London and back to the Racecourse: a total of 65 miles. The distance is not the challenge – it’s cycling in the dark and amid London traffic that could be the biggest problem. It will be great to see the London sights by night and, with luck, the adrenalin will keep us awake! We have to raise £200 each for the charity, so any pennies would be gratefully received. I will remind you all again in the next edition of Shouldham News. Many thanks. Ann Hullah

Festive jokes Four good reasons to reach for the sherry bottle… Why does Father Christmas always go down the chimney?

Because it soots him. Why does Santa have a garden?

Because he likes to Ho Ho Ho. What do angry mice send to each other at Christmas?

MultiMulti-use games area? The Parish Council has been asked about providing a multiuse games area for the playing field. Since this would involve raising a very large amount of money, the Council would like to gauge the amount of commitment to a games area before looking into it further. If you feel this is something the village would benefit from and could maintain, please email the clerk at shouldhampc@talktalk.net so that a meeting can be arranged to get more information.

Bowls Club news In addition to the events noted in ‘Dates for your diaries’, the Bowls Club also runs whist nights every Tuesday, starting at 7.30pm, and line dancing every Friday from 7.30pm. And don’t forget the Bowls Club New Year’s Eve Dinner & Dance: tickets £12.50 including food. Phone Elsie on 347636 for details.

Harvest supper Following last year’s success, the Shouldham Harvest Supper was held again this year and was on Saturday 5th October in the Village Hall. Numbers were lower than in 2013, mainly because there were many other events going on at the same time. (This is a busy village!) However, 43 guests enjoyed a delicious roast pork meal prepared by Steve and Mandy Massen and brought to the tables by volunteer waitresses and waiter. Desserts had been made by several villagers – in such a tempting variety that it was, for many guests, hard to choose! ‘Why not have a little of each?’ was the response. As is becoming the custom, a number of village photographs from former years were passed round, which led to lots of amusing discussions and much marvelling at how much Shouldham has changed. The team of helpers and guests were pleased to have raised, through ticket sales and raffle, £113.50 for church funds.

Watlington Medical Centre Life at the Medical Centre is never dull, and the challenges facing our practice are mirrored across the country. Following years of GP bashing, there is now a recruitment crisis in General Practice and this has hit us hard. Dr Tien Do, who spent six years looking after our patients, has moved on to a partnership in Downham Market and we wish him well. This has meant that we have been unable to recruit a replacement doctor. We are, however, very pleased to welcome Bryony Humphryes, a nurse practitioner to our team. Bryony had been working as our community matron, co-ordinating care for some of our most vulnerable patients. Bryony will be working alongside Amanda Moss, seeing acutely ill patients as well as seeing patients for routine checks such as blood pressure, medication checks and chronic disease reviews, freeing the doctors’ time to deal with more complex medical issues. Our nurse practitioners work alongside our doctors and complement the holistic care we aim to provide for our patients. Our health care assistant, Angela, is now running the anti-coagulation clinic from the Medical Centre, saving patients from having to attend the hospital to monitor their Warfarin. More and more patients are being prescribed Warfarin to thin the blood, as research has shown that patients who have an irregular heartbeat, called atrial fibrillation, can reduce their risk of having a stroke by being on Warfarin if the benefits outweigh the risks. By the time you read this, those of you who are eligible should have had their flu jab. In addition, a small number of patients will have had their shingles vaccine. As there was a shortage of vaccines, NHS England decided to offer the vaccine only to those aged 70 or 79. Next year we hope to have more vaccines, but those of you turning 70 or 79 next year will be offered the vaccine. This vaccine should prevent shingles, which you get as a consequence of having had chicken pox. You cannot get shingles if you have never had chicken pox. You cannot catch shingles from someone else’s shingles, but if you have not had chicken pox before, you can catch chicken pox from someone else’s shingles. The main problem with shingles is the severe pain that most patients get – it has been described as the hellfire of shingles. Watlington Pharmacy is taking an increasing role in helping our patients achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle. The pharmacy assistants are having great success in helping people stop smoking. Patients requiring emergency contraception can obtain it from the pharmacist without having to see a doctor. We have joined with Pharma-Mobility, a mobility aids supplier, to provide mobility aids that can be ordered for you by the pharmacy and delivered to your home. We would however encourage anyone wishing to purchase mobility aids to contact Age UK first, which has factsheets about them – these are also available from the pharmacy. Patients considering purchasing mobility scooters should first contact East Anglian DriveAbility on 01842 753 029 for impartial advice. We are very proud that we have an ageing population, with 330 patients over the age of 80, and 30 of them over the age of 90. Twenty years ago, we had three patients over the age of 90! We wish you all a healthy and happy festive season. Watlington Medical Centre and Watlington Pharmacy
