  • 10 Amazing Day Trips You Can Take From London – TravelVip code nay hien thi tren destop It s important (and easy) to travel around England when studying abroad in London. Studying abroad in London is great: there are an infinite number of possibilities in such a masssive city. It can be amazing but it can also be overwhelming, and sometimes you just need to get out of the city for a day.

    It is also important to remember to explore the other parts of the United Kingdom while you re abroad in order to truly understand your host country s culture. Due to my slightly unfortunate class schedule, I can t take weekend trips, so I have been spending my weekends taking day trips around England, both to see some items on my bucket list and also to discover all the charm that England has to offer. If you buy a 16-25 Railcard for 30 when you arrive to London, you save 1/3 on all rail journeys throughout the UK for one year.

    You ll most likely make up your money within a couple of train trips. I ve saved so much money because of my railcard and it has definitely encouraged me to take as many day trips around England as possible! Here are ten great day trips you can take around England while you re abroad, both common tourist destinations and off the beaten path towns.

    England has something to offer for everyone, and everything is just a train ride away! (the ticket prices listed below are including the 16-25 Railcard discount). St. Albans St.

    Albans is a great little town just north of London with some fabulous pubs and a beautiful cathedral. If you re studying abroad in the fall, you can visit St. Albans near Christmas and go to their fantastic Christmas Market, which is located right next to St.

    Albans Cathedral (free admission). Grab a bite in the pub called The Boot. It s incredibly charming and old and has great food.

    All in all, St. Albans is perfect for wandering and relaxing, especially if you need a little break from the hustle and bustle of London! Return tickets from London Blackfriars and Kings Cross are 7.90 and train rides are about 40 minutes. (Trains that terminate at Bedford call at St.

    Albans and are much faster than the trains that terminate at St. Albans itself!) Winchester Love Jane Austen and green spaces? Head to Winchester to see one of the best preserved medieval Great Halls, Jane Austen s final place of rest in Winchester Cathedral, and a lovely city with a lot of green space.

    You can also see some otters at one of the longest running mills in England. It s the perfect destination on a sunny day St. Giles Hill, which lies at the south end of the city, offers breathtaking views of the city (and good exercise).

    If you head to Winshester on a Saturday, wander around the town market. Return tickets are about 22 from London Waterloo and trains are about an hour and a half Oxford Oxford is the oldest school in the English speaking world and definitely one of the prettiest campuses there is. You feel like you step back in time upon arriving at the city.

    You can visit individual colleges as well as the ones that were used in the filming of Harry Potter. However, opening times listed online are sometimes not accurate and the college visiting hours are short. The best thing to do is make a list of the colleges you want to visit, and just walk to each of them while in Oxford.

    Also, make sure to bring your student ID in order to get student prices (usually around 1) for visiting the colleges. If you want to visit the famous Duke Humfrey s Reading Room at Bodleian Library (where they filmed the library scenes in Harry Potter), you need to book a tour ahead of time or at the ticket booth, which will cost about 7. Off-peak return tickets are about 16 from London Paddington.

    Cambridge Fancy seeing what is continually ranked the best school in the world? Cambridge is the place to go. The buildings are extravagant and the famous Kings College Chapel is a must-see.

    Be sure to check the opening days and times of the colleges you want to visit and bring your student ID for the student entry fees into the colleges that charge admission. Off peak return tickets are 10.90 from London Kings Cross on the weekends. Unlike most cities, the train station is about a mile from the campus, so be prepared for a short walk before you actually start seeing the colleges!

    Cardiff Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and full of culture. There is so much to do and see so check out my 12 hour guideon exactly how much Caridff has to offer. You can even extend your trip to a weekend excursion if you find you want to do everything on the list!

    It is about a two hour train ride from London Paddington and return tickets range from 28 to 48 depending on how far in advance you book! Canterbury Canterbury is a medieval town that is home to the famous Canterbury Cathedral from Chaucer s Canterbury Tales. It has 1400 years of history and is the site of Archbishop Thomas Beckett s murder, England s most famous murder.

    Tickets are 9.50 for students and well worth it. Other attractions worth visiting are St. Augustine s Abbey, founded in 597 by St.

    Augustine, marking the rebirth of Christianity in Southern England, the ruins of the Norman Castle, and the Dane John Gardens, which date back to 1551. Return tickets to Canterbury West are 19.80 from St. Pancras International.

    Bath Bath is home to the famous Roman Baths and the city looks like it has been untouched since the 1800s. After you see the baths (be prepared for crowds of schoolchildren), grab lunch at one of the several pubs around town (my favorite was the West Gate Public House) and then spend time at the Jane Austen Centre (Bath was the setting of two of her novels), Bath Abbey (right by the Roman Baths), and the Royal Crescent. Jacob s Coffee House is a great place to grab a cup of tea, or if you feel the need to splurge, Bath has a wide selection of tea houses for afternoon tea!

    Train tickets to Bath can get quite expensive if you don t book them far enough in advance, so be sure to plan ahead to get the cheapest tickets! Brighton In need of a beach day? Head to Brighton!

    Wander around Brighton Pier, relax on the beach, and check out the flea market. Go to the Royal Pavilion, built as a pleasure palace for King George IV between 1787 and 1823. It s a great example of exotic oriental architecture and perfect if you want to add a little history to your day trip!

    Return tickets from St. Pancras International or London Blackfriars are about 6.95 Salisbury/Stonehenge If you want to see Stonehenge, Salisbury is the best place from which to do it. The Stonehenge Tour company will pick you up right at the train station and drive you direct to Stonehenge and back, including admission to Stonehenge itself, for 26 (Entrance to Stonehenge is 13 if you can find your own way there and tickets must be booked in advance).

    The bus also takes you to Old Sarum, the site of the earliest settlement in Salisbury. When you get back to Salisbury, head to Salisbury Cathedral, which has tallest spire in England and one of the tallest spires in the world. Hitler even ordered the Luftwaffe not to bomb Salisbury because they used the cathedral spire as a marker when flying over England.

    The cathedral, absolutely gorgeous in itself, also houses the best preserved copy of one of the original four copies of the Magna Carta. Train tickets to Salisbury from London Waterloo are 25 and about an hour and 20 minutes long. Windsor Castle Fancy a visit to the Queen s residence?

    Windsor Castlehas been the home of kings and queens for over 1000 years, making it the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. Windsor is a great destination if you re feeling particularly #royal and want to see some of the great treasures from British history and wander through the rooms the Royal Family sometimes lives in! The Semi-State apartments are open between late September and late March, so plan your visit around that time to make the most of your Windsor Castle experience.

    After touring the castle,walk around the town of Windsor and grab some lunch at one of the pubs across from the castle itself. Return tickets to Windsor & Eton Central Station from London Paddington range from 6.85 to 10.40 depending on when you leave. Bonus: your castle ticket ( 17.50) can be used as a yearlong ticket.

    Just check the website before you go to make sure that the castle and famous chapel are open!

    And opt for the complementary audioguide.

  • 18 Countries Reveal Their Beauty Standards By Photoshopping ... culturenlifestyle 1 : UK medical website, Superdrug Online Doctor, published an experiment that explores beauty standards in context to body image. This latest project was inspired by the viral campaign where journalist Esther Honig circulated 27 images that were enhanced by photoshop artists from 27 different countries, according to their cultural perspective of ideal beauty. The market agency Fractl was hired for this project and they gave one simple direction to 18 different freelance designers from 18 countries across the world, Photoshop her form.

    The idea is to photoshop and retouch the woman in the photograph to make her more attractive to the citizens of your country. We are looking to explore how perceptions of beauty change across the world. Multiple designers are involved.

    You can modify clothing, but her form must be visible. No nudity. All other changes, including those to her shape and form, are up to you .

    Look at the dramatic changes below.

  • 21 Invaluable Writing Tips From Renowned British Writers 1. Write from the heart as well as the head. Write about what makes you angry, what moves you to tears, the things about which you feel passionately.

    If you feel it when you write, others will feel it when they read. Malorie Blackman 2. Open your mind to new experiences, particularly to the study of other people.

    Nothing that happens to a writer however happy, however tragic is ever wasted. PD James 3. Think only about the work, about writing a book as good as you can make it.

    It helps to have the sensation that you are writing a book that doesn t exist and that you, as a reader, would like to exist. Adam Foulds Via malorieblackman.co.uk / theguardian.com 1 2 ID: 7250155 4. If you get stuck, get away from your desk.

    Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people s words will pour in where your lost words should be. Open a gap for them, create a space.

    Be patient. Hilary Mantel 5. While you re writing, read like mad but read analytically.

    You will never be able to put a book together without an understanding of how other books work. I suspect that this is more a matter of instinct than anything else but you can nurture that instinct by looking at other texts and thinking, What s successful here? What s failing?

    And why? Sarah Waters 6. Do what I did: Pretend you want to do something else and write on the sly until you re free to do whatever you want!

    J.K. Rowling Via theguardian.com / Twitter: @jk_rowling 3 4 ID: 7250061 7. Finish your book.

    Whatever is your writing process, ensure that you have got to the very end of it and are satisfied before you begin to think about the whole other process of publication. Publication does not turn you, as if by magic, into a writer. You are already a writer.

    It s important not to forget that. Ross Raisin 8. Don t romanticise your vocation .

    You can either write good sentences or you can t. There is no writer s lifestyle . All that matters is what you leave on the page.

    Zadie Smith 9. Have regrets. They are fuel.

    On the page they flare into desire. Geoff Dyer Via theguardian.com 5 ID: 7249922 10. Don t go reading the latest prizewinners and bestsellers in the hope of discovering what publishers are looking for.

    By the time your book is written, they ll be looking for something else. Andrew Cowan 11. Remember you love writing.

    It wouldn t be worth it if you didn t. If the love fades, do what you need to and get it back. Remember writing doesn t love you.

    It doesn t care. Nevertheless, it can behave with remarkable generosity. Speak well of it, encourage others, pass it on.

    A.L. Kennedy 12. Keep writing.

    Even if you think it s terrible, keep writing; you will only get better with practice. And learn to finish the things you begin, because the ending is the hardest part. Lucy Saxon Via theguardian.com / youngwriters.co.uk 6 7 ID: 7249958 13.

    Listen to what you have written. A dud rhythm in a passage of dialogue may show that you don t yet understand the characters well enough to write in their voices. Helen Dunmore 14.

    Don t write for the market. Clue yourself up about what s out there and what sells and then forget it. The best novels are written with passion, not calculation.

    Your writing has to come from your heart, not from your desire to be the Next Big Thing. Sarah Waters 15. Write short stories.

    They afford lots of failure. Pastiche is a great way to start. Ian McEwan Via theguardian.com / believermag.com 8 9 ID: 7249986 16.

    Be unkind to your characters when you are exploring who they are. Challenge them, put them in difficult situations and see how they respond, present them with strong choices and show us their development. Interrogate them.

    Do they have any transgressions? Once you see the world from your characters point of view, their emotional logic will be authentic. Jenny Downham 17.

    Write loads, read voraciously, go out and live. Things will emerge in the spaces in between and you might be surprised by what does. Irenosen Okojie 18.

    Write about what you know is the most stupid thing I ve heard. It encourages people to write a dull autobiography. It s the reverse of firing the imagination and potential of writers.

    Kazuo Ishiguro Via stylist.co.uk / greenacrewriters.blogspot.co.uk / shortlist.com 10 11 12 ID: 7250214 19. You have to write the book that you want to write. You have to be prepared to do your own thing and not bow to the critics, not listen to the policeman in your head saying you shouldn t do this or that.

    Bernardine Evaristo 20. Don t look back until you ve written an entire draft, just begin each day from the last sentence you wrote the preceding day. This prevents those cringing feelings, and means that you have a substantial body of work before you get down to the real work.

    Will Self 21.

    Finish everything you start.

  • A Music of Grief, Classical Music and The First World War ... - IceniPost This year s Wymondham Music Festival music lecture by Dr Kate Kennedy is A Music of Grief, Classical Music and The First World War .

    The lecture is free to attend and starts at 7.30pm on Tuesday 3 June, at Fairland Church Centre.

    The event is supported by Rotary Club of Wymondham and Fairland United Reformed Church.

  • A Norfolk Schoolboy's Memories of W.W.II | joemasonspage I was born on December 3 rd 1928, so World War II came upon me at the age of ten until I was fifteen. I was fortunate that I lived first in the quiet market town of Harleston until October 1942 and then in the village of Methwold until 1946. At Harleston I attended the Junior School until I progressed to Bungay Grammar School.

    Living at Methwold I attended Downham Market Grammar School. I left there at the age of fifteen in July, 1945. By early 1939 every household in the country had received a booklet on how to be ready for war.

    Even cigarette cards carried air raid precautions. These we collected and swapped at school. There were plans for the distribution of air raid shelters to homes in areas most likely to be hit by bombs.

    Air raid sirens were erected. Gas masks were issued and special smaller ones for babies. The gas masks were in almost square boxes on strings.

    Very soon mothers were making covers for them. We had to take them everywhere with us and periodically we had to practice wearing them at school. They would smell very rubbery and were claustrophobic to wear, the visors steaming up.

    On 1 st September 1939 war with Germany seemed imminent and many thousands of children, some with parents, were evacuated from London and boroughs, many of them to Norfolk. I was friendly with one boy who lodged with the butcher at the top of London Road. He didn t stay long; many preferred the risk of bombs to the oddities of the countryside.

    There were two girls who lodged in a big house (the old school perhaps) opposite Redenhall church. I cycled home with them once from the swimming pool at the river, Wells Lane I think. They were friendly with another girl Dawn C.

    At 11.15a.m. Sunday, 3 rd September 1939 war was declared on Germany. The government had advised the safest rooms were those in the centre of the houses.

    My mother and I had single beds in the sitting room which was central. I don t know where my father slept. Everything was rationed, ration books were issued to every household and each had to register with their local shop.

    The ration books came into use the following year. At school, to support the war effort, we were encouraged to knit scarves for merchant seamen probably one plain one pearl in navy blue mine finished six feet long! In 1940 each person was allowed 4 ounces of butter, 12 ounces (345 gr) of sugar, and 4 ounces of ham or bacon each week.

    As the war progressed there was even less. Everything was sold on surrender of coupons. In Dad s garden up Station Road there were copious quantities of rhubarb.

    Mum made jam and it was rhubarb with everything. How I hated it. Marjorie L from next door told me the daughter of the previous sergeant had peed on the rhubarb so that probably put me off.

    Mum would save the sugar rationing to make jam. We had our own jars but when mine was going down quickly I would pinch some of Dad s. As well as the food rationing there was a blackout which meant no light was allowed to show from within buildings, prevented by blankets or special screens or similar hung over the inside of doors and windows.

    Windows were taped to prevent damage from flying glass, among other Air Raid Precautions published in a special Government booklet issued to all premises in the country. Vehicle lights were dimmed with masks, coal was rationed as were sweets. Mum would scrape butter onto rounds of bread and then scrape it off again.

    I used to love sandwich loaves of bread. I could eat nine or ten rounds. I looked for air holes which would get filled with butter.

    I liked Sunday tea when Mum would get out her best tea service which was pink and the edges trimmed with gilt. I wonder what happened to it ? Sometimes we would have tinned salmon which I enjoyed soaked in vinegar.

    On one occasion I was ill and my mother was so pleased that she was able to obtain a few bananas for me from the local greengrocer. This was wintertime and the bananas had come from the Canary Isles. On another occasion she was able to buy a few tomatoes.

    I didn t think about it at the time but they had to come by ship over many, many sea miles, running the gauntlet of German U Boats. I was in the choir at St. John the Baptist church in Harleston.

    During the long sermons I used to pass the time by drawing aircraft and air battles on the white pages of the prayer and hymn books, inspired by the Battle of Britain fights. When my voice broke I was designated to pumping the organ. There was a long passage beside the organ, the wall being covered in whitewash.

    I soon got busy covering all this space with my drawings. Often it meant I forgot why I was there until I noticed the organ was getting precariously low on air which meant I had to pump furiously to get the weight back down again. Soon after we had moved to Harleston a bathroom and toilet were fitted into the box room above the kitchen.

    Mum s contribution to the war effort was to invite the grand-daughter of a couple living up our lane to use our bathroom when she came home on leave from the WAAFs ( Women s Auxiliary Air Force.) Denis and I would g o off on our cycles, usually on Saturdays, armed with my copy of Bacon s Cyclists Map of Norfolk. We would find churches and try to get into their towers but we weren t lucky very often. However on this map I marked the locations of Army camps and airfields which would have been a boon to enemy spies!

    At the beginning of the war there was a big Government campaign to Dig For Victory encouraging the growing of vegetables at home. A local builder allowed my friend Alan to have an allotment on the field at the rear of Alan s home. It was from here on Saturday, 23 rd July, 1940 we saw in the distance German planes apparently dropping bombs on Pulham Airfield, The Germans did try unsuccessfully to destroy it.

    It had been an R.A.F. Station during W.W.I. first in 1915, and it had been the home of R 33 and R 34 airships.

    Today the village sign proudly depicts the R 34 at its moorings. On that occasion in 1940 the Germans dropped sixteen high explosive bombs but there were no casualties. There were several other raids and the big hanger was hit on one occasion.

    On another occasion German bombs were dropped into a field just passed Frank Spurgeon s premises at Mendham Lane and killed two ponies. I didn t see it happen but saw the bomb craters the next day. I wrote a little essay about it but my teacher was not impressed.

    Soon after the war started our head teacher, Mr. Rhodes, volunteered for the army. I don t know what happened to him.

    A Mr Pilch took over. He didn t like me because my father had told him off for riding his bike without lights. He seemed to take a delight in taking it out on me in petty ways!

    I didn t have to put up with him for long because it must have been in the September, 1940, I started at Bungay Grammar School. At Bungay there were air raid shelters to which we had to hurriedly retreat when the siren went off. The shelters were damp and smelly.

    Sometimes a teacher would try to give a lesson. Other times we would sing morale building war-time songs. The other side the pub next door was a large house occupied by a doctor Maidment.

    There was great excitement when his daughter married an army officer by the name of Vickers. Mum and I watched them from a front bedroom window drive off to go on their honeymoon in a large open topped car. One wartime memory is of a captured German Messerschmitt fighter plane being put on display just into the entrance of Harleston Recreation Ground.

    The object was to boast public morale. Quite distinct in my memory now is the sickly sweet smell of the engine oil. Some of the local boys spent a long time unsuccessfully trying to remove parts for souvenirs.

    On one occasion a German Dornier bomber crashed in a field at Starston. One of the crew, the pilot, was killed. He was buried at Starston church until after the war when his remains were moved to Germany.

    The other crew member was locked up in the cells across the yard at the back of our house. I was never allowed to see any prisoner. My mother or the Constable s wife had to provide meals for the prisoners.

    A most vivid memory in my mind is of one night in October 1941. I was asleep in bed. I was eleven years old I was awakened by the loud roar of aeroplane engines.

    Quickly looking out of my bedroom window I saw a Wellington bomber go past, very low and a ball of flames. The next day I learned it had crashed in a field up Jays Green, a little past our school. It had come down with such force it was almost fully buried into the soil.

    All the crew perished . On yet another occasion Denis and I were near the drill hall, getting walnuts off a tree just outside someone s gateway. A twin-engined German bomber came over so low we could see the crew inside looking down at us.

    We were both very frightened and hurried home on our bikes but nothing untoward happened. It was in 1941 that Sergeant Stanley George Kybird was killed while flying a Spitfire fighter plane in France. He was from the Elveden branch of the Kybird family.

    One vague memory I have is just once having a ride in a Bren gun carrier. I think an Army sergeant took us. His wife was staying with friend Alan A s family at Candlers Lane.

    I remember seeing my first Americans. They were coloured and very smart. This was at Harleston market place.

    They were employed helping with the construction of the airfields in the vicinity, and there were many. Laings carted the gravel. Early in the war the American air force was known as the USAAF Army Air Force but later it got shortened to USAF.

    When they first flew from Hardwick it was the 310 Bomb Group ( Nick named Ted s Travelling Circus ) using B 26 Mitchell medium bombers. They were at Hardwick from September until November, 1942. Alan A and I would cycle there and throw sticks up at them as they took off but of course they were too high for us to hit them.

    Denis L, the boy from next door, and I would go exploring. For some reason we were attracted to a little copse of the lane at the bottom of Needham hill. Here we found a ground covering layer of certain commodities left behind by Americans after interludes with some of our local girls.

    Unfortunately some of the girls were left with more permanent reminders of these occasions, two in particular! Placed around the town were a number of pillboxes from which, with the necessity, soldiers or Home Guard troops could fire on approaching Germans. This of course did not happen.

    However, these pillboxes provided cover for all sorts of illicit past times. In the case of Alan A and myself, we had surreptitious smokes in one at the top of Mendham Lane. Pillboxes were rapidly constructed at the beginning of the war, in 1940 and 1941, constructed of brick or concrete, with concrete tops.

    They had one entrance and slits in the six or eight sides to fire from. Inside they smelled damp and musty, some flooded. For many years after the war one was on the beach at Happisburgh, having fallen down when some of the cliff collapsed.

    It is probably still there. On an occasion Dad took me in his car along the road at Flixton towards Bungay. On a previous occasion there had been dozens of tanks hidden in the trees.

    On this second occasion the tanks had gone but there were some wooden structures left and hanging in one was an Army shut knife a treasure I had for some time. On occasions we would go to visit my mother s parents at Heath Cottage, about a mile Norwich side of Holt. Bren gun carriers would practice on the heath.

    One I understand is buried in the bog there across the lows. Just down the road near the top of Edgefield Hill was a searchlight camp. I remember well how the searchlight beams would sweep the skies.

    Sometimes I was able to hear the boom boom of Ack Ack guns practising at Weybourne. A light aircraft would tow a target behind it. I have read that Churchill once inspected soldiers of the Cambridgeshire Regiment on the Heath.

    This was in 1940 when he was checking on our Coastal Defences. Similarly we would visit my father s parents at Thetford. I remember watching the trains from a back bedroom window.

    The house at Vicarage Road was fairly close to and overlooked the railway lines. More than once I saw a train towing thirty or more tanks on flat trucks, heading south towards London. On one occasion we went to Bury St.

    Edmunds to do some Christmas shopping. I had been given my Christmas present by my grandfather a new ten shilling note. In a bookshop I saw a book all about the British Army costing seven shillings.

    This I had to have although I knew the ten shillings was intended to go into savings. Was I in trouble over that ! It was here I first saw American Air Policemen on large Harley Davidson motor cycles patrolling the town.

    They were so smart with white helmets, hence the nick-name Snowdrops! In October, 1942 we moved to Methwold when Dad was promoted to Inspector. He was issued with a white steel helmet and a revolver.

    These I only saw once. I wasn t too happy about the move at the time as it meant a change of school and friends. I was much happier when I learned it was a mixed school!

    The school was at Downham Market which meant a twelve mile bus journey each way.. The bus would take us past the airfield at Bexwell, just outside Downham. Here we would see bombers, Stirlings and Lancasters being loaded up with bombs.

    Some of the planes we saw had been badly damaged by German fighter planes or anti aircraft fire over Germany during the night raids. Two airmen from this station were posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. One was Flt Lt Aaron who was pilot on a bombing raid over Turin and was seriously wounded by flak from German guns but managed to get his plane home safely.

    He died soon after. The second V.C. Was in August, 1944 .

    Sq Ldr Bazagette was pilot of a Lancaster from 635 Squadron, a pathfinder squadron. He managed to mark their site rocket storage facilities in France. His aircraft was set on fire and on crash landing exploded.

    He and his crew were killed. During the war 170 aircraft were lost from this airfield we just did not realise the full significance of what we saw. At one time Mosquito fast light weight bombers made of wood also flew from there.

    Once the American Air Force came to the area, it was not long before some of the girls were coming to school with chewing gum, cigarettes, badges and some eventually married Americans, including two sisters. Because of the war the corridors round the inner quadrangles were lined with brick walls to give some protection against bomb blast. Fortunately they were never put to the test although when an air raid siren sounded we had to file into the corridors.

    School dinners were produced on economy lines but we never went hungry. There were rumours of horse meat and whale meat but we still consumed it with relish. For some meals we had luncheon meat.

    This was sliced so thinly to make it look more.! We had a lot of stewed apples and custard the apples coming from the Head Master s trees. He would also sell them to us for one penny each, also sweets.

    About this time British Restaurants were set up in various towns, the object being to provide basic meals cheaply. There was one in Downham Market, communal kitchens set up by the Ministry of Food as non-profit making. Meals were sold at a fixed price of 9d (just under 4p) and no meal of more than 3 courses for 5 shillings (25 p).

    I did sample these on two occasions when I had gone to play football on a Saturday and then had to wait some hours for the bus home. I believe it was on Thursday evenings, I and two friends would cycle to Mundford because the fish and chip shop there did fritters and chips on that night. This was a speciality.

    There was little fish available. I remember along roads through the forestry there would be signs warning about incendiary bombs and butterfly bombs. The butterfly or anti personnel bombs were first used in this country in 1940 against Ipswich.

    They were lethal within a radius of 33ft. Several would be dropped together by the Germans. We would also find bundles of aluminium foil in strips dropped by German planes.

    They were used as a counter measure against radar and first used by the Germans in 1943. We also used the same method, called Windows. About 1943 there were soldiers of the Eighth Army (the Desert Rats) camped in the area.

    I learned from some of them a few choice words in Italian. I also learned enough of their experiences in the desert to give a talk to my class at school. On the bus ride to school sometimes we passed Italian prisoners or war working in the fields and we would call out these choice words from the bus windows.

    Many of these Italians were billeted in a large house near the church in Stoke Ferry. They were easily recognised because they had round patches on their brown clothing. Some Italian prisoners of war were billeted at the army camp at Cranwich and some of our school girls living in Methwold would walk along the road towards Mundford to flirt with them.

    The Desert Rats were in the area training in readiness for D.Day on 6 th June, 1944. For a brief spell some Canadian troops were billeted in Methwold Drill Hall. Dad would have to break up fights at the pubs.

    On 26 th May, 1943 the King and Queen came to visit Methwold airfield and my father was present as he was responsible for civilian policing. He kept very quiet about it and I didn t know until after the war. At one time airmen of the Royal Dutch Naval Air Service were stationed at Methwold.

    Their uniform was a very smart dark blue. This was in 1943 and they flew B25 Mitchell light bombers I believe of the 320 (Netherlands) Squadron. The front of our house overlooked the flight path and I often watched the comings and goings from a spare bedroom window.

    It was on the 3 rd of May, 1943 when Squadron Leader Leonard Trent 1 (later awarded the V.C. and D.F.C.) flew out from Methwold with twelve Ventura aircraft of 487 Squadron, Royal New Zealand Air Force on a fateful raid. Their target was Amsterdam power station.

    I saw them go out and later only one return, the rest having been shot down. Since the war I have been able to read that S/Ldr Trent was one of those shot down and he and his navigator were held prisoners of war. He was involved in the Great Escape from Stalag Luft III when 220 R.A.F.

    Prisoners planned to escape via a tunnel. He managed to get through the tunnel but was found by the Germans nearby and surrendered. He remained a prisoner until the end of the war.

    There is now a Ventura Close in Methwold. Didlington Hall has some war-time memories for me. I and a couple of friends would cycle from Methwold and fish in the River Wissey off a road bridge.

    American airmen from Bodney would walk that way, I think this was about July, 1943. They were very generous, giving us sweets, chocolate cigarettes, also fishing line and hooks We would see our friends for a while and then no more. At that time it did not occur to us they may have been shot down or killed in their missions.

    On part of the estate was a watermill which breached the river. We used to swim in the mill-pond and were sometimes joined by Americans. One convinced me a quick way to have a suntan was to put vinegar onto my body.

    It did give me a tan but friends at school wouldn t sit near me because I smelled like a fish and chip shop, my mother wondered were the vinegar was going ! In December, 1943 I was given an autograph album as a birthday present which I started using straight away and I still have it. It contains entries not only from school friends but also servicemen.

    One is by a Group Captain Yarde who was commanding officer at Methwold. He took the salute of a parade through Methwold High Street for Salute the Soldier week on Sunday 14 th May 1944. My father wasn t very pleased that I was audacious enough to ask for it.

    It was during this savings campaign there was a drawing competition at Downham. I did a drawing of the badge of the King s Own Scottish Borderers and won first prize. I was presented with a fifteen shilling savings certificate in Downham Town Hall by Lady Ruth Fermoy who died in 1993 aged 85.

    Once I saw an RAF Meteorological balloon slowly come down to land in a field opposite the Cock public house corner. I told Dad and went with him and P.c. Albert S to hold it until RAF personnel arrived.

    Albert was my hero. He always had time for me when Dad was elsewhere. Once he showed me some copies of Mein Kampf (My Struggle) Hitler s story seized from a German sympathiser living in the Methwold fens.

    They were stored in one of the cells. It was in May, 1945 many Indian soldiers who had been captured by the Germans in the North African Desert Campaigns and held prisoners of war were flown back to England in Operation Exodus from Bari, Italy. In this operation altogether something like 72,500 ex P.O.W.s were flown back to England in 23 days.

    Lancaster bombers of 149 Squadron, Methwold, played their part in this. Many Indian soldiers were billeted in the area round Methwold and Northwold, in the camps which had been used by the Desert Rats before D Day. The Indians were fattened up before the long journey back to India.

    It is worth noting that of all the aircraft which flew from Methwold during the war 43 were lost by being shot down or crashing, of these 25 were Venturas, 6 Stirlings and 12 Lancasters. The Methwold Lancasters also took part in Operation Manna in which food supplies were dropped to starving civilians in Holland. The first flight in this operation was from Methwold on 29 th April and the plane named Bad Penny .

    The American Air Force did similar flights and named their operation Chowhound . The village sign now depicts an aircraft in flight over a ploughing scene and the church. There is a Roll of Honour in Methwold church, a page being turned each day.

    Sometimes on a Saturday afternoon I would cycle to one of the camps, either at Didlington or Lyndford. I had made many friends of different creeds and castes among the Indian soldiers and enjoyed the challenge of making myself understood. I drank pint mugs of tea, oddly with a pinch of salt.

    Sometimes I was given a chapatti with an egg stolen from the local farmer, or jam. I also went to the camp cinema and watched Indian films and learned a smattering of Urdu also how to write my name and address in Sanskrit. Cigarettes were plentiful albeit rather rough.

    One make, Victory, was like sawdust. We would often see a lady from Methwold who wore very bright red lipstick cycling out to the Indian camps on her old bike to offer some home comforts I expect! A British army officer, Leslie Ball, was billeted at the Hall and wrote a lovely book called Heron Lake.

    He wrote about the wildlife on the lake. We used to get to the lake from near the water-mill. One of the very early paintings I did from life was of the lake.

    The hall overlooked the lake and there was an open air swimming pool. On one occasion we went for a swim there but there was green algae on the surface. Nearer to the time of Operation Overlord D Day General Sir Miles Dempsey had his headquarters at the hall.

    He became commander of the 2 nd Army in Europe from 26 th January, 1944 to 8 th August, 1945. My memory of D Day Tuesday, 6 th June, 1944 was hearing the roar of very many bomber planes and looking up to see the sky full of American Fortresses and Liberators. On one occasion my father took me there or it could have been Lyndford Hall.

    I think it was to a courts-martial but as usual I wasn t told! I do remember having lunch in this very large hall sitting among American Air Force officers. As a constant reminder of the Desert Rats, what they did in the war and their presence in the Mundford area there is a Cromwell tank on a raised plinth beside the road from Brandon to Swaffham.

    Parts of the 7th Armoured Division, prior to D Day, were stationed at the camp at Cranwich. For some reason unknown to me my father had an invitation to go to their camp to see a show by a branch of ENSA (Entertainments National Services Association). He took me along and we sat on the front row.

    Many well-known entertainers visited camps of H.M. Forces. I have no idea who were in this particular show but we enjoyed it.

    As there were so many airfields in the area plane crashes were inevitable. As soon as we boys had heard of a crash we would be off on our bikes looking for souvenirs, parts of aircraft or live ammunition. We would pull out the steel ends to get at the thin strips of cordite.

    These we lay out in a line and set fire to them just for the fun of it. Once we went to a crash site where two American bombers had collided in mid-air, fell to the ground and both crews killed. We wanted to have a look but there was an American Air Force policeman on guard and he had a gun.

    He told us to clear off. We told him it was our country and we could do what we liked. He wasn t impressed and became threatening so we left in a hurry.

    We never gave a thought to the fact that a plane crash meant the loss of life and In the case of an American bomber as many as ten men. On the evening of V.J. Day victory in Japan I was staying with my parents in Thetford.

    There were celebrations near Castle Hill. I went there and found some of my Indian friends. They introduced me to an Indian V.C.

    His name was Singh. He gave me his autograph which I had on a scrap of paper for many years after. Unfortunately like many things with the passage of time it got lost as did many of my souvenirs like badges from different countries.

    I still have a small silk handkerchief also a large print of a painting of loads of cotton on carts in Northern India which were given to me by my Indian friends. Having left school in July, after a short holiday I started work at Barclays Bank at Brandon. There was still a heavy presence of both American and British army.

    Officers would come into the bank paying money into various accounts and one of the lady staff was in much demand for dates and some mornings would stagger into work after a particularly late night! These are my memories of World War Two when I was a schoolboy. I have added some information after research to explain some happenings but apart from these the rest are genuinely from my memories.

  • A sea of red, white and blue transforms Downham Market as ... Dressed as a prince and princess Ashton (4) and his sister Scarlet Jones (6) enjoyed the Royal Wedding celebrations in Downham Market. Picture: Ian Burt. Around 150 people packed into the Town Hall in Downham Market to enjoy watching the Royal Wedding on a huge screen.

    Town mayor John Fox was delighted and surprised by the amount of people who came into Downham to catch a glimpse of Prince William and Kate Middleton s big day. He said: With all these kinds of events, we didn t know how many people would come along but the Town Hall was full. There were around 120 people seated and plenty more standing at the back but the funny thing was you could have heard a pin drop during the service.

    It was an amazing experience and the atmosphere was brilliant throughout with an excellent mixture of families, grannies and single people. Following the service, hundreds of people then packed into the market square which hosted a bouncy castle, children s rides, face painting, various stalls and the Hilgay Silver Band. There was also a prince and princess contest in the afternoon and the four to seven age group winners were Ashton Jones, four, and Ellie Davidson, five.

    Mum Becky Jones, who also took daughter Scarlet, six, to the event, said: We have all had a brilliant day. Scarlet and Ashton have been looking forward to the Royal Wedding all week and really enjoyed watching the wedding. Scarlet added: I thought Kate s dress was really nice and I thought Westminster Abbey looked pretty.

    American-born Ryan Davidson beamed with pride after his daughter Ellie was given her crown. The Downham resident said: It s been a great day. In America you don t have things like this and I think that s what makes Britain special.

    He added: Ellie has had a great day and loved dressing up as a princess. In nearby Church Farm, families enjoyed tractor rides, egg and spoon races as well as various fete games including horseshoe coits and guess the weight. There were also three-legged races and a beat the goalie stand with the Steve Rossell Jazz Trio providing the music.

    Downham residents Kate Corletts, Gill Sek and her son Kamonde, two, got into the Royal Wedding spirit by dressing in red, white and blue. Meanwhile Lituanian mums Ausra Hisinskiene, Kristine Linkevcius, Lina Karpinas and Monika Klimas were delighted by the Royal Wedding celebrations. Mrs Hisinskiene, who lives in Ely, said: We have all had a really nice day and loved every minute of it.

    I thought the wedding was emotional but beautiful and really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us and something we won t forget. Elizabeth Esse, who runs the Stow Bardolph farm with husband William, said: We have had at least 200 people come along which is fantastic and everyone has got into the spirit of this historic day. It has been such a lovely atmosphere with everybody joining in and wearing red, white and blue.

    We asked everyone in the village to come along and the village has really rallied around and people have helped run some of our stalls which has been great.

    Further up the A10, in Shouldham, there was an exciting atmosphere with residents packing the village green and both young and old battling each other in a tug-of-war competition.

  • 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.

  • Anglian Potters Selected Members' Exhibition 2015 Anglian Potters Selected Members Exhibition 2nd October 1st November 2015 21 selected members of the Anglian Potters Association will be exhibiting their work at the Ferini ART Gallery during October this year. It is a particularly auspicious time of year to have chosen as the gallery will be celebrating its fifteenth anniversary. Anglian Potters are delighted to be showing work in this beautiful space as they have not exhibited in Suffolk for several years.

    Clay is a most versatile and durable medium, lending itself to the creation of thrown domestic ware, hand-built vessels, sculpture, and even jewellery. 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.

    It is a rigorous process with equal attention being paid to form, process, skill and execution.

  • Appeal for shire horse to lead Downham Market parade 09:00 Monday 23 February 2015 A shire horse is needed to lead this year s St Winnold s Parade. Downham Town Council is looking for a new shire horse to head the traditional parade through the town on Friday, March 20. Usually the parade is led by Bernard, a Suffolk Punch gelding from Church Farm at Stow Bardolph, but he is out of action this year due to a sore foot.

    The parade, which marks the granting of a market charter for the town in 1046 and its horse trading heritage, also includes ponies from the West Norfolk Riding Association for the Disabled along with numerous dignitaries. Children from Hillcrest School and Nelson Academy are also involved. One of the people behind the event is Nikki Hannan.

    She said: To have a big proud horse leading the parade makes it look fantastic. We are going to do what we can to get one. If you have a shire horse which could lead the parade contact the council on 01366 387770.

    For the first time, the council will be flying the flag for the Commonwealth on Monday, March 9. Mayor John Doyle will be reading the official affirmation before the flag is raised by a teacher from Downham Academy in the town square. Children from the town s schools will also be taking part in the 10am event.

    Deputy clerk Richard Davidson is inviting residents to attend. /ifeq} #ifeq type value="image"} /ifeq} #ifeq google_ads.type value="flash"} /ifeq} /each}

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Base for East Anglia Planning a driving trip of England and Wales (and maybe Scotland) next year. At this stage I'm looking for a base in north Cambridgeshire/East Norfolk for exploring the north Norfolk coast, cathedral towns Ely and Peterborough, and maybe up into south Lincolnshire for some family history research. We're thinking of a base in the Kings Lynn, Wisbech, March, Downham Market area.

    Any comments on these four choices anyone?

    We enjoy towns rather than big cities, our interests include history and walking, and what we look for in a base is comfortable friendly accommodation and a some choices of good dining places plus somewhere pleasant to enjoy an English ale.

    Many thanks...

  • Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs Winter Seminar Grading ... Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs Seminar Grading Students from both Beccles and Bungay Taekwondo Clubs recently took part in their annual winter grading/seminar hosted at Bungay High School. A complete range of the belt grades took part, from white belt to black tag, and a few Black belts who joined the seminar. The ages of the students taking part were from 5 upwards, all being tested on the progression of their Taekwondo skills and techniques including: punching, kicking, blocking, patterns, self-defence, sparring and some Korean terminology.

    The senior students also have to do destruction which is the breaking of plastic boards with specific hand and foot techniques. GTUK Examiner Mr Steve King 6th Degree from Wellingborough was very impressed with the standards achieved by both clubs and issued 100% pass rate. Training is now underway for the upcoming Regional and National tournaments in February and April, the next club gradings will be at the end of March.

    Both clubs are always ready to welcome new students of all ages and abilities to come and try this great martial art, ideal for families to take part in, as many parents train alongside their children. Bungay train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and a special class on Wednesday for Bungay High School students. Beccles train on Mondays and Thursdays at the Beccles Sports Centre, but also teach during the Wednesday enrichments sessions at the Beccles Free School.
