    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!

    Enjoy YourCrab Tales

    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.
