Roys Open Again After Six WeeksOn February 14th
I have to say that when I went alongto look aroundRoys of Wroxhamsnew store in North Walsham, I wasvery impressed.
I have always been a fan of this chainof shops across Norfolk, which wasorginally set up by the Roys family
back in 1895.
Five generations later the family arestill involved in the companys nowlong successful venture.
After 6 weeks the store looks greatwhile maintaining the same, if not
better, important approach, toserving their customer base.

I dont know about you but I amgetting sick and very tired of thisdepressingly cold, damp weatherwhich hopefully by the time thispaper comes out will be history.
I am not in the habit, usually ofdrawing attention to myself, butso far this year, Ive been missingappointments and often relyingon others to help me sort out the
Crab Taleseditorial etc. becauseof my poor health.
Thank you to everyone for yourhelp, particularly my wife Lis,who just gets on with it all anddoes it all brilliantly.
Thanks to Carol Matthews for herreview of the Mundesley Pantoand as ever to Paul Damen forhis photos (See page 19) sadlyI never got there, I wish I hadbeen t enough go to see it.
I really take my hat off to SamuelLidgeley (Page 10) for setting uphis own Osteopathy Clinic, it is
hard not to admire young peopledoing their bit, providing suchuseful services to people andtheir pets and I wish him well.
Another new advertiser with usis Pauline of Yappers & Barkers(Page 11) with her shop for petsshop in Cromer, she has a greatweb-site where we found loadsof positive comments about herbusiness, she obviously lovesher work just as much as sheloves dogs.
Yet another new advertisers isLaura McClean (see Page 14)with her cleaning business.
I would also like to wish Jeff &Jayne all the very best with theirnew venture in Cromer (Page 13)
I have always liked this coupleever since I rst met them, nowmany years ago.
I wish all these people the very
best wishes in their businessesand long may they keepadvertising with us!

Dear Editor,Next month I am starting a new and excitingFarmers Market with Artisan Crafts atWiveton Hall Farm.
There will be a large farmers market withfresh local produce, plus artisan handmadecrafts, and much more!
There are two barns full of stalls, plus lotsof outside stands as well.
The rst market is on Saturday 29th March,with subsequent markets being on thesecond Saturday of each monththrough to December.
Times are 10am to 2pm -later if weather permits.
Dear Crab Tales,Vampires and Zombies are no longer safein Mundesley as the local authoritys streetlighting is making their life after deatha misery.
Like any self respecting Zombie, you likeyour bit of darkness. So there you are, outfor the evening, busily lurching along astreet, when suddenly - Blam! - the streetlight unexpectedly switches on and oodsyou with light.
Your zombie instincts make you stand stockstill in the hope that youve not been noticed,then thankfully a few moments later - FizzZomp! - the street light switches off againand you can continue your lurching in theblack out.
This new phenomenon of the on and offstreet light is indeed keeping us safe fromthe dark forces and I guess we should bethankful to the local authorities who areattaching these clever light sensors.
Yet they are not quite clever enoughto realise that when their own lampswitches on, it is not daylight at all,just themselves.
Given a few moments of their own lightthey think Oh, its daylight, and thelight goes out.
The sensor then realises its gone dark againand thinks Oh, its night time, so it switchesthe light back on. This on off actioncontinues until daybreak.
I have to admit that this new system savesthe community money as the lights areonly on 50% of the time.
But this Belisha beacon effect must betotally confusing for any Vampire orZombie out for a good time.

I was wondering if you could put this letterinto the Crab Tales about what I am doing.
As it is self-funding I need as much publicityas possible, so far I have done various fund-raising events, from car boot sales to sellingcakes and have a sponsored walk plannedin April.
Over the course of the 4 week trip I take partin community work, construction building andhelp out in schools in various poor towns.
During the nal week I will have the chanceto do a scuba diving course for which I willgain a PADI diving certicate.
For this trip I need to raise 4,000 ofwhich half will go in to the poorestparts of Tanzania.
The other half will go towards the tools thatI will be using, the scuba diving equipmentand the ights etc.
The charity Camps Internationalare out inplaces such as Kenya, Tanzania and SouthAmerica all year round helping in communitiesthat dont have a lot. Sometimes they takegroups of teenagers out to experience andhelp in those communities.
If anyone would like to donate money tohelp me make the lives of others better,please contact me at:

Other than a selection of chocolate and sweetsavailable near the new Cashiers area, mostof their food items have been discontinuedbut have made room for more clothing andhardware items, which includes the populargardening stock which has all increased tomeet the needs of everyone.
Greg told me:
The North Walsham Store re-opening hasfollowed the most extensive ret that Royshas undertaken in one of its Variety stores
in many years, the store was re-opened bythe town mayor Jacqueline Belson.on Friday 14th of February.
The store which is now taking on more of adepartment store feel to it, will feature new
product ranges and larger ranges in manydepartments, including a larger Gardening& DIY department, featuring bedding plantsgrown by us, spring bulbs, seed potatoesand Mr Fothergills seeds.
Increased Fashion and Footware ranges,featuring Hush Puppies school shoes withfree tting service and great brands suchas Superdry, Jack & Jones, Rieker& Ruby Shoo.
Anew fragrance department!
The only Roys store, other than Wroxham, tostock premium range fragrances such asCalvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and many more.
All in all they seem to have crack the nut, ingetting the store set up for a long, protableand generally good long term future.
Considering that they are stocking out 12,000square foot of store they seem to have gotit just right for everyone.
Roys has always been one of those placesthat works to meet the needs and the basicrequirements of everyone who is lookingfor whatever they may need to get thingssorted out for their lives.
This store is basically a place that you cannotbut enjoy shopping in, the service is secondto none and importantly always seems tohave in stock what you are after.
Bearing in mind how long they have beentrading, you would not expect anything
else but a well organised, well stockedup store with reasonable prices.
Managing the North Walsham branch is GregBinns (Above) who explained to me that thechanges in this light and airy shop with theimproved lighting and signage will helpyou nd what you need more easily.
There is now a larger selection of footwearavailable, with staff on hand who are ableto help children to get the right size shoes.

Identication System. We also use standard bino-culars & a high power telescope to monitor 180square miles of sea and the shoreline, reportinganything untoward to the Coastguard.
We want to up our game and improve our effect-iveness. One watchkeeper working alone hasdifculty in monitoring the electronic systemsand keeping a visual watch at busy times.
So the next stage in our development is todouble man each two hour watch.
We need more watchkeepers to do this.If youve got a bit of spare time 2 hours aweek - and feel like doing something reallyworthwhile, why not join us?
You will nd the training enjoyable and you
can progress at your own pace.

My congratulations toall involved and for their
ne efforts so far.
We are all youthful at heartand Im a big kid myself, I just
couldnt resist having a go onthe scooter - Andreas Yiasimi
-Were looking out for you.Take a stroll along the seafront at Mundesleyand as you approach the path down to the
beach your eye will almost certainly becaught by the memorial to the brave menwho cleared our beaches of mines afterthe Second World War.
Next to this stands the MundesleyMaritime Museum.
But have you ever glanced up to see whats
going on in the upper oor of this building?When I rst came to Mundesley I thoughtthat it was a part of HM Coastguard.
Well no, but it serves a similar purpose.
Today and every day, since 1995, it hasbeen staffed by the volunteers of theNational Coastwatch Institution(NCI) a registered charity.
In the 1990s, the then Government decidedthat technology could replace many of theselookouts. However, since then, they have beengradually reopened by volunteers who recog-nised the need for continuing a visual watchfor anyperson, craft or animal in distressalong our coastline. There are now 50such stations around our shores.
Our Mundesley station has the double distinctionof being the 2nd station to open in the country& was the rst NCI station to be awarded theQueens Award for Voluntary Service.Swimming, sailing, surng and sea anglingare just some of the well-known attractionsof the North Norfolk coast. In recent yearswe have seen a marked increase in theseleisure pursuits.
Yet another reason to visit North Norfolk is onethat is hidden by the waves. Our part of the coastis infamous as a stretch of treacherous water formariners. The sea bed is littered with the wrecksof dozens of shipwrecks. These wrecks are amagnet for recreational divers. The long, hotsummer of 2013 saw a considerable increasein this activity.
One local diving club has realised the potentialbenet to their safety by forming a close linkwith Mundesley Coastwatch.
This action was prompted after an incident lastsummer, when Mundesley Coastwatch was ableto assist when a dive boat lost contact with itsdivers after its electronic systems failed andthe actions of the watchkeeper on duty mostprobably saved the lives of two divers.
Although the Coastguard is equipped with allthe latest technology operated by a highlytrained staff, our nearest full time stationis located 120 miles away on the Humber.
Mundesley Coastwatch doesnt seek to replacethe Coastguard but to add local knowledge and
most importantly to employ the Mark OneHuman Eyeball.
We want to ensure the safety of the small crabboat or the child whose inatable dinghy hasblown out to sea. As technology progresses sodo we, at Coastwatch, aim to keep up with it.
Our watchkeepers are fully trained to operateVHF radio, radar and a computerised Ship
Cromer Skate ParkA 50,000 lottery cash boost for Cromer SkatePark can make the dream a reality and willcomplete the total raised to 75,000, halfof the 150,000 needed to start buildingthe long awaited skate park.
Spurred on by this news, the registered charityhas announced a serious fundraising effort toraise the rest of the money.
Huw Parker, who has been helping to publicisethe skate park, said after securing charitablestatus last year, the next stage was to collectthe rest of money.
He forecasts that, if everything goes to plan,building can start the next calendar year.
He added: Once you can get the money in thebank, it makes the chance of receiving biggerdonations more likely.
Mr Parker, emphasized the urgency concerningfundraising because some of the youngsterswould be leaving school soon and moving
on elsewhere.It has been a 20 year wait and after a temporaryskate park was built at North Lodge Park, it wasabandoned in order to focus efforts on nding apermanent site. Planning permission for a parkat The Meadows was granted last year.
A donation from East Runton Extend exercisegroup has now added 200 to their total.
A Sport England spokesman said how pleasedthey were to award 50,000 from theInspired Facilities fund towards thebuilding of Cromer Skate Park.
He explained how the fund helps toprovide good, local sports facilitiesacross the country and Cromer wasthe latest town to benet.
The rst of this years fundraisingactivities, a grand charity ball, willtake place at Northrepps CottageCountry Hotel on March 22nd.

Samuel Lidgleyis a four-year masters degree graduate from theUniversity of Bedfordshire: British School ofOsteopathy which is the oldest and largestorganisation to teach osteopathy in the UK.
The schools patron HRH The Princess Royal
attended their Award Ceremony at WestminstersCentral Hall when Samuel graduated and hewas thrilled to receive his degree from her.
To qualify, an osteopath must study for 4-5yearsin order to gain a masters degree in osteopathy.
Similar to a medical degree, but with greater
emphasis on musculoskeletal medicine, thedegree includes more than 1,000 hours ofclinical experience.
Osteopathy isnt for the fainthearted, but canbe a very rewarding career.
Osteopathy is a statutorily regulated primary health-care profession, which has been practised sincethe 1870s and Osteopaths are increasinglyworking within the NHS.
The British Medical Associations guidance forgeneral practitioners (GPs) states that doctorscan safely refer patients to osteopaths.
Those practising in the UK carry out more than7 million consultations every year with around30,000 people currently consulting osteopathsevery working day. Today, osteopathy ispractised in over 80 countries.
Samuel has been interested in osteopathy sincehe was 16. His ambition to be an osteopath stemsfrom a long term interest in health, tness andwell-being. Aged 19 he was the youngest studentto be accepted on the access course offered bythe British School of Osteopathy.
Samuel has his rootsin Norfolk, where heattended WymondhamCollege, and playedrugby for the countyand region.
Heis also a qualiedequine and canineosteopath havingcompleted a diplomaat the OsteopathicCentre for Animals inOxfordshire, and hasinherited his familysdeep love of horses.
His great-great-grand-father, George Burton,was Head Coachmanand Groom at bothFelbrigg & Gunton.
One of Samuels most recent notable achieve-ments was being selected as Sports MassageTherapist to the Professional PerformanceArtists at the London Olympics Openingand Closing Ceremonies.
He was responsible for assessing and treatinginjuries sustained by the choreographers, the
aerialists and the acrobats in run up to theOlympic opening and closing ceremonies.
Working closely with sports specialist physio-therapists, he dealt with complex performancerelated injuries encountered by the performersin what was a busy and vibrant environment.
Whilst studying Samuel also worked as teamSports Massage Therapist to Southwark RugbyClub, for injury prevention, treatment andmanagement, exercise rehabilitation, pitch-side rst aid, pre-season injury and tnessscreening and pre-habilitation.
At the same time, he also worked as the cyclingmasseur a home-visit sports massage business,serving the South London sporting community,including notably an elite standard runner of the
2012 London marathon, who ran an impressive2hr 19min!
Im passionate about what I do and feelprivileged in being able to make a positivecontribution to peoples lives, particularlythose members of the community whosuffer from pain and immobility
Samuel was able to launch High Silver Clinic,Holt with a loan from the School for StartupsLauncher programme - a government-backednance initiative for 18 - 24 year olds.
Samuel who lives in Cromer, is thrilled to berunning his practice in Holt, where he hashuman clients ranging from 3 months oldto 93 years of age.
While most graduates join existing clinics,I decided to take the plunge and establishmy own clinic in Holt.
Osteopathy is a safe, effective means of diagnosis,treatment, prevention & rehabilitation of a widerange of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
Commonly treated conditions include: back ache,neck strains and whiplash, migraines and head-aches, changed to posture in pregnancy and pre-menstrual symptoms, sports injuries, digestive
problems/IBS, jaw & facial pain, repetitive straininjury, frozen shoulder, rheumatic & arthriticsymptoms, respiratory problems, trappednerve, muscle spasm.
Osteopaths patients include the young, olderpeople, manual workers, ofce professionals,pregnant women, children and sports people.
A consultation includes a thorough case history& physical examination: assessing muscles and
joints and observing movements. Orthopedic tests& diagnostic clinical procedures, such as taking
blood pressure, are also used to inform thediagnosis and to assess whether referral forfurther medical investigation is necessary.
After Living.........in the remote countryside of Ireland all hislife, an old Irishman decided it was time tovisit Dublin.
In one of the Dublin stores he picks up a mirrorand looks in it, not ever having seen one before,he remarked at the image staring back at him.
'How 'bout that!' he exclaims, 'Here's a pictureof me Fadder.'
He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture ofhis dad, but on the way home he rememberedhis wife didn't like his father, so he hung it inthe shed, and every morning before leaving togo shin', he would go there and look at it.
His wife began to get suspicious of these manytrips to the shed. So, one day after her husbandleft, she went to the shed and found the mirror.
As she looked into the glass, she fumed:
'So that's the ugly bitch he's runnin'around with.'
Thanks to Ingrid Campbell for this.

Yappers &BarkersHi, my name is Pauline and I have recentlyopened this shop in Cromers Church Street
called Yappers & Barkers, The FashionHouse for Dogs.
I sell a wide range of dog coats, clothes, collars,leads and harnesses and I also stock dog treats,accessories and toys.
I rst became interested in dog clothes whenI was asked to take in a dog which had beenbadly neglected, his name was Yogi, he wasa husky and apart from needing a home, heneeded a great deal of TLC.
He had a severe case of mange, and in a deepstate of depression, every inch of him wascovered in bleeding infected sores wherehe had chewed and scratched himselfcrazy, it was heart breaking to see.
The vet shaved off what hair he had left, and along course of medicated baths started.
Trouble was, poor Yogi was now naked andvery cold. I couldnt afford the all in one dogsuits, so remembering my school girl sewinglessons, I started adapting childrens jumpersand trousers to t him.
When we were out walking we would get a fewstrange looks, after all its not every day you seea dog wearing a sweat shirt & jogging trousers,
but they kept him warm, and protected his sores,
and so the healing process began, not just onhis body, but mentally as well.
His trust and condence started to return andafter a year of TLC, baths and bizarre outts,Yogi was transformed into a magnicentlooking dog.
And in return, he gave us eight wonderful years.
By now, I had started a small hobby of sellingdog clothes and accessories at outside dogevents, while still rehoming dogs.
Another of our huskies was called TJ, he waspetried of loud noises, especially reworksand thunder.
I bought him a special coat designed to comfortdogs in stressful situations, and it helped to calmhim down.
When he developed a tumour on his leg I madehim a padded leg warmer to protect it.
We now have Misty who is a typical healthyhusky and we also have George who is aGerman Shepherd cross Rottweiller.
George is a bag of bones.
And yes, you guessed it, he too has clothesto wear, especially at night when the heatinggoes off he wears his pyjamas.
So, as you can see, clothes can play a big partin your dogs life, apart from making them lookgreat, clothes can keep your dog warm anddry on a chilly wet day, or make them feelsafe and relaxed in a stressful situation.
I no longer do outside events, erecting a marqueeon a windswept eld, with the rain lashing downisnt fun anymore, so here we are in beautifulCromer, bringing the latest styles and fashionsfor your dog, so come and give us a look, anddont forget to bring your dog.
The pictures of the inside display in Paulinesshop are taken from her wonderful web-site:
[email protected] you can also nd more of the picturejokes like these on the right.
It is well worth a visit and you could even addyour own photos while you are there.
We wish Pauline all the very best wishesfor her new venture and Oscar cannotwait for a pair of pyjamas! LK.

A Great Dog StoryThey told me the big black Labs name wasReggie, as I looked at him lying in his pen.
The shelter was clean, no-kill, and thepeople really friendly.
Id only been in the area for six months, buteverywhere I went in the small college town,people were welcoming and open. Everyonewaves when you pass them on the street.
But something was still missing as I attemptedto settle in to my new life here, and I thought
a dog couldnt hurt and would give me some-one to talk to. And I had just seen Reggiesadvertisement on the local news.
The shelter said they had received numerouscalls right after, but they said the people whohad come down to see him just didnt looklike Lab people, whatever that meant.They mustve thought I did.
At rst, I thought the shelter had misjudgedme in giving me Reggie and his things, whichconsisted of a dog pad, bag of toys almost allbrand new tennis balls, his dishes and asealed letter from his previous owner.
See, Reggie and I didnt really hit it off whenwe got home. We struggled for the two weeks,
which the shelter told me to give him to adjustto his new home. Maybe it was the fact thatI was trying to adjust, too. Maybe we weretoo much alike.
I saw the sealed envelope, I had completelyforgotten about. Okay, Reggie,I said outloud, lets see if your previous owner hasany advice.
To Whomever Gets My Dog:
Well, I cant say that Im happy you arereading this letter I told the shelter couldonly be opened by Reggies new owner.
Im not even happy writing it.
So let me tell you about my Lab in the hopes
that it will help you bond with him and hewith you. First, he loves tennis balls.
The more the merrier.
Sometimes I think hes part squirrel, the wayhe hoards them. He usually always has twoin his mouth, andhe tries to get a third inthere. Hasnt done it yet.
Doesnt matter where you throw them, hellbound after them, so be careful.
Dont do it by any roads.
Next, commands. Reggie knows the obviousones sit, stay, come, heel.
He knows hand signals, too: He knows balland food and bone and treat likenobodys business.
Feeding schedule: twice a day, regular store-bought stuff; the shelter has the brand.
Hes up on his shots. Be forewarned:Reggie hates the vet.
Good luck getting him in the car. I dontknow how he knows when its time to goto the vet, but he knows.
Finally, give him some time. Its only beenReggie and me for his whole life. Hes goneeverywhere with me, so please include himon your daily car rides if you can.He sits well in the backseat, andhe doesnt bark or complain.
He just loves to be around people, and me
most especially.And thats why I need to share one more bitof info with you... His names not Reggie.
Hes a smart dog, hell get used to it andwill respond to it, of that I have no doubt.
But I just couldnt bear to give themhis real name.
But if someone is reading this..... well itmeans that his new owner should knowhis real name.
His real name is Tank. Because, that iswhat I drive.
I told the shelter that they couldnt makeReggie available for adoption untilthey received word from my companycommander.
You see, my parents are gone, I have nosiblings, no one I could have left Tankwith and it was my only real request ofthe Army upon my deployment to Iraq,that they make one phone call to theshelter ... in the event ... to tellthem that Tank could be put upfor adoption.
Luckily, my CO is a dog-guy, too, and heknewwhere my platoon was headed.
He said hed do it personally.
And if youre reading this, then he madegood on his word.
Tank has been my family for the last sixyears, almost as long as the Army hasbeen my family.
And now I hope and pray that you make him
part of your family, too, and that he willadjust and come to love you the sameway he loved me.
If I have to give up Tank to keep thoseterrible people from coming to the USI am glad to have done so.
He is my example of service and of love.
I hope I honored him by my service to mycountry and comrades.
All right, thats enough.
Ideploy this evening and have to drop thisletter off at the shelter. Maybe Ill peek inon him and see if he nally got that thirdtennis ball in his mouth.
Good luck with Tank.Give him a good home, and give him an extrakiss goodnight - every night - from me.
Thanks to David Thorne for this.
On Saturday 15th February I went along to theBook Sale at The Pilgrim Centre but havingfailed to look in the Crab Tales, I arrived fartoo early so I asked Liz King to send me thephotos and report.

I left for Gloucestershireto study at college when
I was 18 and stayed there,working with horses untilI decided to come backhome a few years ago.
On my return, I decided to switch careers,and trained as a nail and spray tanningtechnician... the rain doesnt follow youindoors and a chair is less likely to buckyou off than a horse!
After qualifying at The Nail Centre TrainingAcademy in Spixworth, with Debi Allison,I gained my diplomas and am now enjoyingsetting up my business.
I offer relaxing manicures and pedicures,nail extensions and overlays, as well as
beautiful spray tanning for an all yearround holiday glow.
I decided to make my business mobile so thatI could visit my to clients, rather than expectthem to drive to me, nd a parking space (asresidents we all know that parking is a rarecommodity along the Norfolk coast)and thendrive home. It means less stress, less money on fuel
and parking and a more relaxing timefocused on you!

Roles Of Clinical StaffIn Doctors SurgeriesMundesley Medical Centre, along with mostother surgeries employs a range of clinicalstaff to assist the doctors to care for thevaried requirements of the patients.
Sometimes alternative clinicians are better placedto advise & care for the patients than the GeneralPractitioner during their busy working day.
Some of the skills of the attached staff are summ-arised here and hopefully this will allow patientsto choose the most appropriate person to dealwith their individual needs.The Practice Nurse Team - this includes HCA(health care assistant) practice nurses & seniorpractice nurse. The practice nurse team offera range of skills broadly divided into chronicdisease management and acute problems.The chronic disease management includesmonitoring chronic disease e.g. diabetes,asthma, cardiovascular disease, stroke, highblood pressure and also reviews of epilepsy,
learning difculties and mental health.These appointments are usually run as clinicswhere the patient is assessed in all relevant areasand medications/treatments reviewed. Acuteproblems include wound care and emergencyclinics. Emergency clinics are run jointly bythe practice nurses & the general practitioneron duty for the day.These appointments are booked on the day onlyand are for appointments that cannot wait for aroutine appointment & therefore require urgent
attention. Advice as to the appropriate use of this clinic can be given by the receptionists who arespecically trained to help and often will liaisewith the clinicians to make sure the appointmentsare used correctly.
The nursing team also deal with immunisations& travel clinics, contraception, hormone replace-
ment therapy (HRT) health screening and minorinjuries. The practice nurse team also deal withinvestigations such as ECG (heart tracings) andspirometry (lung function tests).
The Phlebotomist -runs a booked appointmentclinic to take blood tests as agreed by the doctorsor nurses. These samples are taken every morningMon.- Fri. and then are couriered to the Norfolk& Norwich Hospital to the pathology lab to beanalysed. Results are relayed back to the surgeryelectronically where they are all reviewed by theclinical staff. The results can take up to 1 weekto be sent back to Mundesley Medical Centre.Some tests may take longer.The Dispensary Staff -work in the dispensary,dealing with medication and also have extra roles
that can be accessed by the patients such asstop smoking advice, medication reviews(DRUM) and delivery services.
Midwife -runs an antenatal clinic once afortnight at the practice.Medical Students -From time to time we havemedical students attached to the practice as partof their education. If a medical student is seeinga patient, permission will always be asked fromthe patient & consent received.We feel that the teaching of medical students is
an important role that wecan offer & appreciatethe contribution that ourpatients make.
The Appointments made
with medical studentsare always clearly super-vised and condentialityis strictly maintained.

Wednesday 5th March
Beginners Please! is the traditional call heardbackstage at theatres all over the world from theNational Theatre in London to the tiniest ofamateur dramatic companies held in thehumble church hall.
It signals the imminent start of the play/opera/pantomime and quickens the pulse of those whoneed to be on stage as the curtains open.
The Sheringham Players, who are privileged
to perform at Sheringham Little Theatre haveheard the same call to arms for almost 50 yrs.
However on Fri 21st & Sat 22nd March atSheringham Little Theatre, this call willhave another meaning.
The Sheringham Players have been recruitingnew members in order to keep going strongfor another 50 years.
To showcase the new beginners (both onstageand back) they are presenting something a littledifferent - a mix of short plays from 5 minutesto a full one act, ranging from sad through to
downright silly - and from the pens of authorssuch as Harold Pinter and local favourite,David Tristram.
The whole evening will be compred with shortintroductions to each play to set the scene.
The plays includeScoreby Lyndon Brook,Nightby Harold Pinter,Doggiesby JeanMcConnell and Whats for Puddingby David Tristram.
The Sheringham Playerswill present ten playseach evening and members of the audiencewill be able to take full advantage of thebeautifully refurbished Hub Bar and Caf.
Please go along on 21st or 22nd March andbe in at the beginning of the next 50 yearsof The Sheringham Players.

Pantomime..........has truly become local again with thestaging of Cinderella by the Friends ofMundesley Inshore Lifeboat.
The village hall reverberated with the age oldshouts of Oh yes it is! and Its behind youand the audience couldnt help but join in.
Lots of audience participation was the order ofthe day and they lapped it up. Local names and
places were brought into the fun and some people,like a certain editor of a local free magazine,
(Crab Tales), being the butt of a few jokes.Even a regular writer to the letters pageswas honoured with her own song.
In true panto style the actors and paying publiccame together to have fun. There was slapstickwith water, our & cream to make an explosivecake. There were dames with a grudge againsteveryone and everything. There were prettyprincesses plus a double dose of fairies.
Things were thrown at the audience, andsometimes thrown back.At one point the children in the front row almostbecame part of the performance when theyheckled the actors, who returned the goodhearted banter with relish.
Cinderella didnt let us down and the traditional
storyline was followed where good triumphsover evil. Everything you would expect froman English pantomime.
It would be unfair to mention names as therewere many outstanding members of the cast.Together the whole production showed whattalent can do when they all pull together.Locally written and locally produced.
A great show where all the proceeds of theproduction go to the Mundesley Lifeboat.
Thanks to Carol Matthews for this reviewand to Paul Damen for the photographs.
