  • 1,500 Norfolk art prize winner announced: 2013 Holt Festival Art ... Entries were received from all over the country for the 2013 Holt Festival Art Prize and the winner is from Norwich! At a ceremony just before the festival opened, renowned Norfolk based pop artist Colin Self awarded former Norwich University of the Arts student Emily Cole the prize and its attendant cheque for 1,500. Her acrylic and oil on paper painting Drifter, is based on a photograph taken during a walk from Manningtree Train Station to Flatford Mill, through Constable Country.

    Emily said she was absolutely thrilled to win. I only entered at the very last minute she said a friend had mentioned the prize to me but it went clear out of my mind until she reminded me a few hours before the closing deadline. I think I probably got it in with a few minutes to spare!

    Holt Festival Fine Art curator, James Glennie of Art & Antiques Appraisals Ltd said I am so happy for Emily and very pleased that the judges chose her work as the winner. She is a relatively new artist who is already being noticed and I hope that her deserved win will help her find wider attention. She is definitely an artist to watch out for in the future .

    The 2013 Holt Art Prize was judged by Internationally renowned pop artist Colin Self, Amanda Geitner, Chief Curator at The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Art and independent curator, writer and collector Ian Collins. In addition to the cash prize the winning entry will also be exhibited at the prestigious Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in the autumn. Emily Cole was born in Suffolk but moved to Norwich when she was 4 years old, attending school in the city before studying at Cambridge University.

    She later enrolled on a BA Fine Art Painting degree at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), winning the Vernon Crowther Painting Prize for her degree show and completed an MA in Fine Art in 2003. She went on to lecture at NUA and has exhibited internationally including shows in Brussels, Luxembourg and Tokyo. Living and working in Norwich her painting has been praised by novelist Raffaella Barker, writer Iain Sinclair and critic Martin Herbert.

    The winning entry is being exhibited along with all shortlisted entries from 20-27 July at the Nicholson Gallery, Cairns Centre, Gresham s School, Holt, NR25 6EA.

  • 2015 at Budgens of Aylsham & Holt 2015 is a year that will live long in the memory as one of success and achievement for both C T Baker Budgens of Aylsham and Holt. Budgens of Holt began the year with an exclusive collaboration with the town s Thurlow Nunn car dealership through which customers were provided a considerable saving on their fuel. Shoppers spending a minimum of 50 in-store were provided with a voucher that deducted 15p per litre on fuel purchased at the Thurlow Nunn forecourt.

    In so doing, our customers benefitted from a low-cost fuel price of 99.9p per litre the UK s cheapest BP fuel at that time! Such was the popularity of this promotion that the Holt store was featured on BBC Look East. In February, the time arrived for Budgens of Holt to present its cheque to its chosen charity organisation of the year for 2014 the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

    A cheque for 7,423.70 was presented to East Anglian Air Ambulance, thanks to a fantastic effort from the store staff who organised raffles, tombolas and cake sales to achieve its total throughout that year.In March, a cheque was also presented by C T Baker Budgens of Aylsham to its chosen charity for 2014, Girl Guiding, Aylsham Branch. The store raised a total of 5,297.49, which was handed to District Commissioner, Rachel Sidell, by Jane Gurney-Read, Director of C T Baker Group and Shane Woolston, Budgens Aylsham Store Manager. Much like Budgens of Holt, the Aylsham store worked tirelessly to raise its record breaking total through tombolas, raffles, cake sales, bag packing, customer contributions and different fundraising initiatives that took place almost every week.

    For 2015, the store chose Squirrels Residential Breaks for Children an Aylsham based organisation that provides residential short breaks within a homely environment for children with complex health needs. Similarly, Budgens of Holt selected Dogs for the Disabled as its charitable cause for 2015. Also in March, Budgens of Holt was privileged to be announced as a finalist at the Musgrave Store of the Year awards.

    Both Holt and Aylsham stores were also shortlisted as finalists within the Community Store of the Year category. The month of May was one of awards and recognition for Budgens of Holt s local suppliers thanks to the store s annual Local Supplier ceremony at the Feathers Hotel. Prior to taking over Budgens of Holt in 2007, the store stocked only a few locally produced goods.

    Yet, by May 2015, Budgens of Holt had supported around 39 local suppliers, spending over 792,000 to buy in such produce for its customers. The winner of the Local Supplier award was announced by Managing director, Michael Baker, as Comerways Nursery of Wissington, a business that continues to supply the store with a variety of tomatoes. A raffle was also held during the evening with proceeds going towards Budgens of Holt s 2015 charity.

    The fundraising continued into the summer as Budgens of Aylsham held a charity car wash in its customer car park, raising 122.50 on the day. A hark back to Britain at war was on the agenda as the Holt Salute the Forties weekend arrived on the 19 th and 20 th of September. Although wartime was synonymous for its food rationing, there were no holds barred at Budgens of Holt as all members of staff dressed in period costume and participated in events at the store and around Holt.

    Within the store, a raffle and 1940s sweet shop were in place, as was a tea shop stocking everything from tins of Spam, to Colman s Mustard and tea rations. Customers could also sample the delights of C T Baker Bitter a drink produced in commemoration of Holt s heroes of the 1940s. October was truly a month to savour at Budgens of Aylsham as its in-store Post Office was heralded as Post Office of the Year at the retail industry s Oscars , the Retail Industry Awards.

    Recognised for its superb customer service and role at the heart of the community, the award was a fitting tribute to the Post Office and its staff, which was inherited following C T Baker Group having taken over Budgens of Aylsham in September 2013. We converted to a main branch and embraced everything the Post Office could offer. Our business had never operated a Post Office before, but within a year we have won this award.

    It s amazing what we ve achieved by following the advice and guidance of the Post Office team, remarked Finance Director and Postmaster, Duncan Baker. A host of spooky special offers and ghoulish in-store events awaited customers to Budgens of Aylsham and Holt at Halloween. Both stores held tombolas and baked cakes and cupcakes for the event.

    Budgens of Aylsham staged a Halloween Treasure Island competition encouraging young customers to guess the location of hidden treasure upon a map illustrated and supplied by a member of store staff. Over the span of the weekend, the Aylsham store alone raised a total of 523.86 for its charity! A month later, Christmas was just on the horizon.

    Both C T Baker Budgens stores entered the festive community spirit by participating at their respective Christmas lights switch ons. Each store welcomed a host of local suppliers to their late night openings whereby customers were offered tastings and samples. Amongst Budgens of Holt s suppliers were Norfolk Brewhouse, Drove Orchards, Candi s Chutney and Broadland Hams.

    In attendance at Budgens of Aylsham, customers could find H.V. Graves Butchers, Norfolk s Pie Man, the Norfolk Sloe Company, Kettle Chips, Woodfordes and Panther Brewery as well as others. It was fantastic to have the support of our customers and suppliers on what proved to be a successful evening here at Budgens of Aylsham, commented Store Manager, Shane Woolston on the night.

    With a numerous award nominations and exciting developments in store, 2016 is sure to become yet another year of success an achievement for both C T Baker Budgens of Aylsham and Holt. When you actually stop and reflect upon everything we have accomplished this year, it is an incredible achievement. All the above wouldn t have been possible without the hard work and commitment from both teams at Budgens Aylsham and Holt.

    They are a credit to us all.

    Also, I would like to thank all our customers for their custom and support during 2015 and look forward to seeing you in 2016 .

    Shane Woolston, Store Manager, C T Baker Budgens Aylsham.

  • A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS Last weekend was a mixture of frustration (to put it mildly in one case), disappointment, encouragement and excitement for our teams as summarised below. Ladies 1sts . The team laboured to a deserved 4-1 win at a cold Weybread over bottom-placed Ipswich.

    Emma Lee-Smith put them ahead in the first half only for a lively Ipswich to equalise after the break. The game was then transformed when seemingly out of the blue Abby Gooderham fired home one of the goals of the season with a superb reverse stick shot from the edge of the circle. Susan Wessels then converted a penalty corner before Abby set up Susan for a simple tap-in after another piece of individual skill.

    With time running out Abby seemed destined for a deserved second goal only for the umpire to blow for the end of the game with the ball about to roll into the unguarded goal! The team remains in fourth place and this coming Saturday is away to Maidenhead (1.30). Ladies 2nds.

    There was further frustration for the team when they conceded two early goals away to St Albans 2nds following decisions which on another day might have gone in their favour. But they went on to battle hard combined with some excellent hockey and they got a deserved late goal when Kara Kilbourn deflected home at a penalty corner. With this 2-1 defeat the team need to win at least two of their last three games (starting at home this Saturday against Maidstone (2.00) to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

    Ladies 3rds . After their 6-0 away win over Pelicans 2nds (with goals by Sarah Legg 2, Millie Preece 2, Katie Ogden and Mia King) and the draw for the 4ths the team now lead their league by three points from the 4ths who have a game in hand. Katie Woollatt was MOTM.

    This Saturday Lucy Field and her team are at home after four successive away games when they host third-placed UEA 2nds (3.30). Ladies 4ths . After five wins on the trot the team had to be content with a 1-1 home draw against a gritty Norwich City 2nds.

    Laura Tibbenham put them ahead in the first half after considerable City pressure and City hit back with a scrappy goal after the break for a deserved equaliser. Despite these two dropped points Treacle Griffin and her team can still win the league but they have a tricky away game with fourth placed Norwich Dragons 3rds (11.30) this Saturday who drew last weekend after coming up against the resolute defence of lowly Evergreens. END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco SATURDAY 19 MARCH, APOLLO CLUB, HARLESTON Arrive 7.30pm Awards 8.00pm Taxis 12.00am.

    Dress: Smart Tickets (which must be purchased in advance) are 20.00 and are available from clubhouse bar or from Jackie and Kevin Ridley 01379 854697 or 07815 199803. Please come to help make this evening both enjoyable and successful. Ladies 5ths .

    Two weeks ago in a re-arranged away game the team went down 6-3 to Watton 2nds but they were determined there would be no repeat at home and they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Imi Meynell-Anderson and Alice Evans-Hendrick put them 2-0 up at half time and skipper Jose Tibbenham made the game save with a couple later in the game. Fourth place is still attainable by the team but they will need to keep winning including at home to UEA 3rds on Saturday (10.15).

    Ladies 6ths . It was good to see the team earn a deserved point at home in a 2-2 draw with Evergreens 2nds. Ellie Fawkner gave them a first half lead and after Evergreens fought back to take the lead Ellie popped up with the equaliser with five minutes to go in an end to end match.

    This Saturday they are away to Norwich Dragons 6ths (3.15). Ladies 7ths . With a scheduled 5.30 start away to Norwich City 7ths the team knew they were in for a late finish.

    In the event with a delayed start they eventually came off the pitch at 7.20! After starting with ten players they lost Jane Collins through injury. Nevertheless they put up in a strong performance eventually losing 3-0.

    This week they are at home to Pelicans 3rds (12.15). Girls Development . Manager Sandra Elliner was obliged to select a very young side to play Pelicans with several players unavailable as they were playing the next day and with four playing for the 6ths.

    After a good game Pelicans came out on top winning 2-0. This Saturday the team is away to Yarmouth (10.00) whom they beat 5-0 in the middle of December. Men s 1sts.

    They just had to win their home match on Sunday with Teddington to keep alive their very slim national league survival hopes but it wasn t to be sadly as they went down 5-3. Myles King (with his first national league goal) and Ben Wright (with a penalty stroke conversion) had given the team the boost of a two-goal lead. Teddington hit back just before the interval and the game was transformed early in the second half with Teddington scoring three times in four minutes.

    Myles then scored again to give Magpies some hope but seeking an equaliser Magpies were caught on the break and the visitors, for whom it was good see out-on-loan Carl Sitch playing against his brother Leigh, scored again to win 5-3. This Sunday the team play their last home game of the season when they host Cambridge City at the changed time of 12 noon. Men s 2nds .

    Skipper Lawrence Baynes and his team were looking to build on their fine away win over Spalding when they took on fellow-strugglers Cambridge Univ 2nds at Weybread. It was soon clear they were in for a tough game and it was good to see Sam Moore and Richard Ling playing for Magpies for whom Thomas Ridley was in sparkling form. After a keen struggle the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw but the students struck with five minutes to go.

    This spurred Magpies on even further and Thomas gave them a deserved equaliser. While now off the bottom of the league Magpies will need to win at least two of their last four games to avoid relegation starting hopefully away to Felixstowe on Saturday (2.00). Men s 3rds .

    The team knew they were in for a tough game against league leaders IES 2nds despite beating them at home 5-1 earlier in the season. They conceded two sloppy goals early in the game and after getting to half time without further damage they let in another soon after.

    3-0 down soon came 4-0 but third-placed Magpies hit back with late goals by Jake Sewell and skipper Matt Brand to lose 4-2. With three games left promotion is still a possibility for Magpies but they will need to beat Norwich City 4ths at home on Saturday (1.45) to have a realistic chance.

    END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco please see above Men s 4ths . After their fine win over IES 3rds the previous week the team took a big step to avoiding relegation when they beat IES 4ths 1-0 away to move up to 5th place in their league. Their goal came in the last minute through Ali Williamson with his first for the club in thirteen years after he beat three players in the circle.

    What a goal! But they are still not completely safe although a win on Saturday at home to North Norfolk 2nds (12.00) would do the trick. Men s 5ths .

    They were up against league leaders Bury St Edmunds 4ths in the last game at Weybread by which time I have to confess I had sought the warmth of the clubhouse and with it an excellent meal thanks to the Ladies 1sts. Andy Caston twice brought his team level before Bury pulled away to lead 5-2. Lewis Belsey then scored to make the final score a respectable 5-3.

    On Saturday they are away to Thetford Town (2.30) who like them are in mid-table comfort. Men s 6ths . Eric Davy s team continues to amaze!

    Their 2-1 home win over Norwich Dragons 5ths was their seventh in their last eight games with the other ending in a draw. They were a goal down at half time before Eric got the equaliser (although this was incorrectly challenged in the clubhouse by jealous team-mates!) after Jon Wells had created the penalty corner. With seven minutes to go and with an appreciative roar from the spectators Richard Chopper Allcock fired home the winner after a shot from Roger Kent had come back off a post.

    The prospect of promotion for the team remains a concern (!) but they have three demanding games remaining including away to Norfolk Nomads on Saturday (2.30). Boys Development . While father Andy was scoring a brace for the 5ths sons Tom and Jake Caston were scoring the four goals by which the Dev team won 4-0 away to Pelicans.

    Tom went one better than his father scoring three times while Jake had to be content with one. The team, which does not have a game this week, is now back on the top of their league two points ahead of Norwich Dragons (having played a game more) who they play away on Saturday week. Mixed.

    The team is at home to Norwich City on Sunday (2.00) in the 3rd round of the EH Trophy. U18 Girls. The team had the frustration of their mini-bus breaking down on their long trip to play Neston South Wirral on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the EH Plate.

    They then had the further frustration of losing 1-0 through a late goal. But to their credit they honoured the fixture. U16 Girls.

    Frustration mixed with bewilderment (and something stronger) must have be the emotions of the team and their supporters when after beating Cambridge City 2-1 and drawing 1-1 with hosts Leicester in the regional finals their game against Worcester was called off with ten minutes to go when they were leading 8-0 (with Abby Gooderham scoring a remarkable seven goals). The reason being that it says in the rules no team may lose by more than eight goals. This meant our team lost out to Leicester on goal difference of two after Leicester had surprisingly beaten a strong looking Cambridge City 8-0.

    U16 Boys. They had drama of their own at the regional finals in Canterbury drawing 3-3 with Teddington after being three up with six minutes to play. They then came from two down to draw 2-2 with Old Loughtonians before losing 3-1 to Canterbury.

    U14 Girls. They missed out on reaching their regional final when they lost 3-2 away to Norwich City. They recovered from 3-0 down with goals by Grace Collison and Georgie Cantrell and were pressing for the equaliser at the final whistle.

    U14 Boys. The team is through to the Midlands regional final on goal difference after Norwich Dragons beat Bury St Edmunds 3-1 on Sunday. U10/U12 Boys and Girls.

    Congratulations to our four A teams who have qualified for the East Finals to be held at Weybread over the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 16/17 April after their exciting successes in the Norfolk Championships at Pelicans HC on Sunday. The U10 Girls finished as champions while the other teams came second. This coming Sunday they will be joined by our B teams, who had their own event at Weybread, when they all compete in the Norwich Dragons Minis.

    Finally, a remarkable record at Weybread last Saturday when on the sand-based pitch there was a member of the Davy family playing in all four games for Magpies, namely Louise (10.45 for the 5ths), Katie (12.15 for the Development), father Eric (1.45 for the 6ths) and Louise and Julie and mother Marie (3.15 for the 6ths). Best of luck to all our teams this weekend. Please see the website for the full list of fixtures.

  • Age UK Norwich Art Exhibition at largest Norfolk Hospital Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals will be featuring a new art exhibition from Age UK Norwich which aims to capture older people s history in words, pictures and sounds. The exhibition will be on show along the hospital street Level 1, and will feature important moments to promote a better sense of understanding and care. The exhibition showcases five Life Stories created by students from the Jane Austen College who have worked closely with local older people to produce Life Story Scrapbooks.

    BBC Voices trained the pupils in recording skills and alongside the photography and scrapbook display, the public will be able to hear the older people s memories come to life. Emma Jarvis, Hospital Arts Co-ordinator, said: People visit hospitals for a variety of reasons so we provide a wide variety of art for patients, visitors and staff. We are really pleased to be showcasing the work by Age UK Norwich especially as Age UK is of service to both the visitors and patients of our older people s medicines wards and the art is a way of displaying both services available and information.

    Age UK Norwich Chief Executive Susan Ringwood said: The life stories work we do is an important project helping to prevent older people from becoming invisible. If the time comes when their abilities do become impaired, there is a record of who this person once was, what they have done, where they have been. This intergenerational project lasted three months and is just one example of the work Age UK Norwich carries out in the city to help tackle loneliness and social isolation.

    The exhibition is open until the end of April 2016.

    Notes: The Hospital Arts Project at NNUH works on diverse projects with the community, interior design, site specific arts, performances, workshops, exhibitions, events and gardens Is hospital arts charitably funded as a whole? Many of its projects project are funded by grants from organisations and charitable donations.

The potters and sculptors showing their work in this exhibition represent many disciplines within ceramics, as well as revealing the rich diversity of skills and creativity that exist within Anglian Potters. From Rosemarie Cooke s charming wildlife sculptures, through Susan Cupitt s elegant and spare thrown vessels and Angela Mellor s delicate, transulscent porcelain, to the smoke-fired work of Juliet Gorman, this exhibition has something to appeal to all collectors of ceramics.

    The organisation is long-established and widely respected nationally. It was originally formed in in 1983 to represent all that is best in East Anglian ceramics. It has a thriving membership of over 400, which includes amateur and professional potters, students and supporters.

    Those who choose to apply for selected membership must submit a body of work for inspection by a panel of their peers.

  • Applecart Theatre - i Am Mark The bold London based storytelling company Applecart is touring the UK this autumn with their show i Am Mark a production that challenges the way we perceive religion and retells one of history s most famous tales. On Wednesday 15 th October they are taking over www.thegarage.org.uk 1 JESUS THE TERRORIST? MODERN MARK COURTS CONTROVERSY the pace of this production is unrelenting, leaving you both challenged and entertained at the finale something that is not easily achieved.

    Henry Austin, The London Economic AN EXPLOSIVE new production casting Jesus as a rebel leader, and featuring a terrorist strapping a bomb to himself, is set to challenge traditional church goers when it opens. Edgy theatre company Applecart claims the controversial modern day makeover of St Mark s Gospel: i am Mark will rid the story of its stuffy religious baggage. Instead they plan to show the Son of God as a revolutionary leader in the dramatic production that features a bomb-laden man counting down the seconds until he blows himself up.

    Artistic director Peter Moreton said: We re treating the story with huge respect but it has often been marginalised by the church. Jesus is subversive and political, which doesn t sit well with the dull and often narrow world of organized religion. He added that their production rid the tale of 2000 years of baggage using fresh and sometimes strong language.

    Storyteller Phil Summers added: For us a theatre in the heart of the city is a far better setting for a story of social unrest and revolution than an old echoing cathedral. This is why they have chosen Norwich! i Am Mark Using a combination of theatre, film, music and comedy they will tell the entire of Mark s Gospel for one night only at the Garage on the 15 th October 2014.

    The production was first performed at the Leicester Theatre in the West End and is touring throughout the UK this autumn during September and October.

The first audition session for the Easter Youth Production will take place from 10am on Sunday, December 13, and is open to anyone aged eight to 21. Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: This is a wonderful opportunity to take part in one of the greatest stage musicals and to work with our professional director Tracy Loftus and the rest of the team here.

This is a very ambitious show for us to stage within the confines of the Little Theatre but we are extremely excited about it, Debbie adds.

It will be a full-scale, creative production with some innovative multi-media effects and will be a fantastic show for young people from the area to take part in.

  • august 2nd gig at milestones jazz club featuring zoe ... GIFTED YOUNG SINGER RETURNS TO MILESTONES JAZZ CLUB This month s concert at Milestones Jazz Club on Sunday 2 August features the return by popular demand of an exciting and gifted young singer from Newcastle making her mark on the UK jazz scene Zoe Gilby and The Andy Champion Trio. Zoe Gilby last appeared at Milestones in 2013 when she entertained a large audience with accessible, exciting music without losing the deeper subtleties of a fine jazz musician. Z oe has already been praised by Courtney Pine as deserving of wider recognition when he played her debut CD on his BBC Radio 2 show.

    Zoe s is a versatile voice, which mixes great jazz technique and a healthy dose of the blues with a deeply expressive and agile quality on a wide range of material - from George Gershwin and Duke Ellington to Joni Mitchell and Pink Floyd. A childhood steeped in jazz means that her many influences are clear - not only great vocalists like Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Nancy Wilson and Anita O'Day but also revered instrumentalists like Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker and John Coltrane. "I was brought up on listening to jazz", says Zoe, "I have had this passion passed on to me from my father who worked professionally as a jazz trumpet player and arranger for over 40 years." In 2007 she released her debut CD, Now That I Am Real , followed in 2010 by 'Looking Glass' which has subsequently broadcast on radio stations across Europe and the US. While still young, Zoe had already performed with respected musicians like Louis Stewart and Jim Mullen, at international jazz festivals around the UK and at prestigious venues like Ronnie Scott s Club in London and m ore recently in China, Finland and Ukraine Zoe s husband and long-time accompanist, the endlessly resourceful double bass player Andy Champion, will lead sympathetic support on a repertoire of American songbook classics, modern jazz standards and originals from her latest CD, Twelve Stories .

    The band s full line-up features Zoe Gilby (vocals), Andy Champion (double bass), Phil Brooke (guitar) and Brian McAllister (drums).

    All Milestones gigs are held on the first Sunday of every month and take place at Hotel Hatfield, Esplanade, Lowestoft with the doors opening at 8pm .

    Admission - 7 / 6 (concession).

  • Aylsham 'Wide Sky' Festival | Cittaslow - Cittaslow UK Aylsham Wide Sky Festival Three years ago Cittaslow Aylsham encouraged the establishment of an Aylsham Festival whose ethos is to celebrate aspects of Aylsham life through involving local schools, businesses, churches, societies and library, as well as the local National Trust property Blickling Hall, in events and activities. In doing so the Festival creates experiences that cover the arts and sciences and focus in on individual businesses. Local people of all ages, as well as visitors to our lovely town, are given an opening to share their own knowledge as well as be stimulated by visits from experts and entertainers along the theme.

    2013 has seen our third Festival which took place 23-28 May this year. The theme Paths and Patterns allowed us to stretch our imagination from an interactive textile project which attracted almost 100 pieces of work, to walks around the local countryside and events on the Bure Valley Railway. Talks and discussions on memory, poetry and much more were complemented by a sell out performance in the Town Hall of the play The Canada Boys about young workers at Colman s Mustard Norwich factory who were encouraged to emigrate to Canada.

    The beautiful Aylsham Parish Church meanwhile was the venue for yet another wonderful Britten Sinfonia concert which also attracted a sell out audience.

  • Aylsham at Budgens set to reopen with new look and new boss ... Store manager Sandra Taylor-Meeds puts the finishing touches to the Budgens of Aylsham revamp. PHOTO: ANTONY KELLY Richard Batson 1 Wednesday, October 9, 2013 2:42 PM An Aylsham supermarket reopens tomorrow, Thursday, after a takeover and makeover. To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

    Holt businessman Michael Baker has added the town s Budgens store to his retail empire. It will continue to be Budgens, and have everyday shopping lines but will also add groceries and wines from Bakers and Larners food hall. Mr Baker said the upgrade showed there was scope for local independent stores to compete with the big national chains.

    The store is midway between a Tesco further along Norwich Road, while there is also a Co-operative store in the Market Place. We are not trying to compete with Tesco. We are trying to provide quality.

    People say our Holt store is Waitrose quality at Tesco prices. In Holt we are supporters of local produce and will do the same in Aylsham. And having a refurbished Budgens will bring more people into the town, helping other traders.

    We want to show there is life after Tesco. Mr Baker said there were fears the Budgens store might shut, so he talked with franchise parent company Musgrave about taking it on. CT Baker already had a presence in the 7,000-population town, twice the size of Holt, with its builders merchants and the company saw potential there.

    Acquiring the store had not been in its development plans, but neither had Budgens of Holt and other previous additions. It was just a matter of grabbing opportunities when they arise , said Mr Baker. He said the store would look different, with new fittings.

    The post office was staying but the coffee shop had been axed. There would be a new delicatessen and fresh bread bakery. About 15pc of the goods will be from Bakers and Larners.

    The store open 8am to 8pm every day except Sundays which will be 10am to 4pm will initially be managed by Sandra Taylor-Meeds from the Holt Budgens, and some other specialist staff will be brought across to help establish the deli section.

  • Aylsham business owner sentenced to six years for arson and fraud ... September 3, 2014, 5:34 pm A 40-year-old man has today (Wednesday 3 September 2014) been jailed for six years for arson and fraud following a four week trial last month. Justin Hindry, of Manor Farm Close, Drayton, was found guilty at Norwich Crown Court of charges relating to arson and fraud by false representation 1 following an incident at Aylsham Bathroom and Kitchen Centre on Wednesday 27 June 2012. He received a six year jail sentence for each offence to run concurrently.

    The business on Burgh Road was completely destroyed by the fire, with the blaze causing substantial damage not only to the premises but also to neighbouring properties. The building itself was damaged to such an extent that it was too dangerous to enter for some days. The premise was owned by Hindry and had been alarmed.

    At the time of the fire there were only a small number of key holders who knew the code to deactivate the alarm to the business, which according to experts appeared to have no fault. Hindry was seen by witnesses at the site after the alarm was set and deactivated and prior to it being reset once the fire had started. Mobile phone cell site data showed he was not in Reepham as he claimed in interview but in fact still in Aylsham at the time of the incident.

    Fraud investigators discovered Hindry s income from the business did not support his outgoings. His business was struggling with creditors chasing for payment. It was also revealed that Hindry was an active gambler, losing 50,000 in two years in one casino alone.

    Detective Sergeant Darren Reade, from Great Yarmouth CID, who led the investigation into the offences, welcomed the sentencing saying: Justin Hindry thought to con emergency services, detectives and his insurance company by setting fire to his struggling business to make money out of the claim. He also deceived his own staff, many of whom had supported him throughout the investigation. His complete disregard for the law and the danger it placed others in is shocking and his conviction will serve as a warning to others who are considering making money in this way.

  • Aylsham Country Market celebrates 40th anniversary 40 years of service to Aylsham It s forty years since the first Victoria Sandwich was sold at Aylsham s Country Market! In those days it was known as the WI Market (and many people still call it this) but it subsequently adopted the Country Market banner, part of the nationwide cooperative social enterprise which boasts 300 branches from Penzance in Cornwall up to Ponteland in Northumberland and as far west as St David s in Wales. On 7 th August, Aylsham Country Market will be celebrating its 40 year anniversary with a special morning featuring an array of tasters and special events, all open to the public.

    Held in the Town Hall from 8.30am to noon, there will be an Anniversary Cake, to be ceremoniously cut by one of the Market s founder members, while current members will enjoy a lunch after the Market has closed. On the Friday before these celebrations, 31 st July, youngsters are being invited to the Market to help make paper bunting which will be strung up in the Town Hall on 7 th August . In addition, there will be a fun quiz to take away and bring back with the answers, again on 7 th , with a lovely prize for one lucky winner.

    Nowadays the produce on offer at Aylsham Country Market goes far beyond the Victoria sponges and jars of jam that were the staple of 1970s. These are of course still available but in addition you are likely to find quiches, steak & mushroom pies, carrot cakes and a very recent addition Brazilian dishes, alongside plants, flowers, vegetables and a wide selection of crafts, from greetings cards to knitted goods. One thing that hasn t changed is the commitment to quality, homemade and home produced.

    Whether it s a sausage roll, a piece of fudge, a knitted sweater, a bunch of fuchsias or a cabbage, customers can be assured that they are buying something that s been cooked, crafted or grown at home. If you haven t been before, pop along to Aylsham Town Hall on a Friday morning to find out what the modern Country Market has to offer. You might want to have a cuppa and snack in its popular caf too.

From Britten to condoms Whether you re into folk music or Benjamin Britten, rambling or condoms, this year s Aylsham Festival has something to offer! The Festival s overall theme is Paths and Patterns but the title scarcely covers the multitude of events being staged over the five days from 23rd to 28th May. Starting this Thursday, 23rd May, the opening day s main attraction is a ceilidh in Aylsham Town Hall, starting at 6pm and going on to 10.00.

    Music will be provided by well-known Norfolk band Shinanikins, with caller George making sure you get the steps right if you decide to dance Poetry and walking but not necessarily at the same time are on the menu for Friday while on Saturday, Festival goers can catch a regular shuttle bus, available by arrangement with Aylsham Care Trust, from the town to Blickling Hall where there will be a craft, vintage and plant fair.

  • Aylsham Food Festival 2013 Report The Festival Gala Dinner at Aylsham High School, cooked and served to over 100 guests From Breakfast to Dinner, from workshops to demonstrations to musical entertainment and markets, this year s Aylsham Food Festival, organised by Slow Food Aylsham, had everything for those who enjoy their food with a light-hearted touch! Taking full advantage of the impressive Mobile Cooking Academy, on loan from Festival sponsors AEG and temporarily sited at Blickling Hall, the weekend got off to a flying start with a series of workshops for groups of young children from local primary schools. On hand to help were Justin Gardner, catering manager at the Hall, plus Liz Scott in the costume of Cath, her scullery maid alter ego.

    Liz returned the following day, together with two other Blickling Hall volunteers, Bunty Stotts aka Flo the Cook and Malcolm Bird, The Butler who staged a workshop for students from Aylsham High School. The three were followed by local chefs Steve Thorpe, Festival Patron and Head of School at City College Norwich; freelance Derrol Waller; Mark Sayers from the Saracen s Head and Richard Baker from Aylsham s Market Place Bistro. Together they produced a series of demonstration sessions for a drop-in audience, cooking up some fabulous dishes which the audience were invited to taste.

    The demonstrations continued the following day with a return of Steve Thorpe and Derrol Waller, joined by Steve Norgate from The Beechwood in North Walsham and, fresh from directing the previous night s Gala Dinner, Jason Baxter, head of Hospitality & Catering at the High School. Blickling Hall s Catering Manager, Justin Gardner was also on hand, and together with Derrol Waller, took part in a lively Ready, Steady, Cook competition. The Festival Gala Dinner occupied its traditional Friday evening slot when over 100 students at Aylsham High School cooked and served a 5-course meal for more than 100 guests.

    Guest speaker Steve Thorpe, Festival patron and Head of the Hotel School at City College Norwich, praised the youngsters for producing a superb meal of the highest standard. Aylsham Country Market, every Friday morning in Aylsham Town Hall Aylsham Food Festival includes two food markets, the first on Friday morning, Aylsham Country Market, is a cooperative of local home-based producers who offer a range of cakes, biscuits, savouries, vegetables and eggs in addition to a selection of craft goods. Aylsham s FARMA-accredited Farmers Market, held every first and third Saturday of the month, enjoyed a very busy day, extending its hours to take in performances by junk percussion duo, Bang On!

    The duo, who use instruments ranging from wheelie bins to plastic pop bottles, invited everyone to join in their irresistibly rhythmic workshops which were followed by a grand finale performance in Aylsham Market Place, featuring some 80 members of the public. Freelance chef Derrol Waller demonstrating his skills at the AEG Mobile Cooking Academy Family Cooking Workshops were another attraction on Festival Saturday, bringing over 50 children into Aylsham Town Hall, where they were able to make Spring Rolls and exotic Tutti Fruiti Crumble to take home with them. The Big Slow Breakfast has always rounded off Aylsham Food Festival and 2013 was no exception.

    Serving also as the final event in the 5-week Norfolk Food & Drink Festival, the Breakfast saw 120 people sit down to enjoy sausages and bacon from Aylsham s three butchers, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms from Salad Days fruit & veg, croissants from Pye Bakers and homemade bread courtesy of Slow Food Aylsham members. Summing up the 2013 Food Festival, Slow Food Aylsham s Roger Willis said, Pulling together all the different elements of this year s Festival has been a challenging experience, particularly as, for the first time, we were operating from two venues, Aylsham and Blickling. But thanks to the exceptional efforts of all Slow Food Aylsham members, plus back-up from principal sponsors, AEG and J B Postle, and our other supporters, I think we have pulled off the best Festival to date.

    The Cooking Academy vehicle has been a major success, while I think everyone agreed that the Dinner at the High School scaled new heights of excellence. Add in the very popular Bang On! who set the Market Place alight on Saturday, the Kids Cooking Workshops, two very successful markets and the sold-out Breakfast, and I think we can say that we are very satisfied with the result of our efforts.

    Aylsham Food Festival is organised entirely by volunteers from a not-for-profit organisation which I think makes the success all the more remarkable. All we have to do now is decide how we can at least equal that success in 2014! If you would like to join Slow Food Aylsham and get involved in the organisation of the next Festival, email info@foodskillscompany.co.uk 1 for details.
