  • 30-feet-long dead whale washes up on Mumbai's Juhu beach ... In another incident of whale beaching in India, a 30-feet-long dead Bryde s whale washed up on Mumbai s popular Juhu beach on Thursday night. Experts say the whale, weighing around four tonnes, had died at sea. The whale was first spotted by joggers last night, and huge crowds of spectators had gathered on the beach by Friday morning.

    Officials are still debating how to handle the carcass, including finding a crane equipped to lift it and a place to bury it. Experts say the whale may explode because of the build-up of gas inside its decomposing body.

  • 5th dead sperm whale found on beach in UK: 17th for the North Sea ... Dan Kitwood/Getty Images A member of the public poses alongside one of three sperm whales found on a beach near Skegness. A fifth dead whale has been found washed up on the east coast of England, several miles from where four whales were found over the weekend. The whale, thought to be from the same pod as those found at the weekend, was discovered stranded on the beach in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, five miles south of Skegness.

    A member of the public spotted the beached whale on Monday afternoon further down the coast from where three dead sperm whales washed up in the early hours of Sunday. The three whales were from the same pod as one that died on Hunstanton beach in Norfolk. Experts are investigating whether they are linked to 12 sperm whales that have washed up on the Dutch island of Texel and the German islands of Wangerooge and Helgoland since 11 January.

    Where the whales were found A spokeswoman for the Maritime & Coastguard Agency said: "We can confirm there is a fifth whale and it is in Wainfleet. We have informed our receiver of wreck who deals with cases of voluntary salvage wreck material across the UK and the Zoological Society of London." Before the fifth whale was confirmed, Adam Holmes, the RNLI station press officer for Skegness, said he had heard witness reports of a fifth stranded whale but was not in a position to confirm it. He added: "It is under investigation by the coastguard at the moment.

    They've had reports, they've dispatched the crews that work along the coast to check it out and they've just arrived. Thirty seconds before you phoned they've arrived in Wainfleet to see what's going on." James Gilbert, from East Lindsey district council, said he had seen reports on social media of a possible fifth whale late on Sunday night. Meanwhile, anti-nuclear activists have been condemned for spraying graffiti on the three whales washed ashore in Skegness.

    The message "Fukushima RIP - man killed me" was daubed in white paint along the back of one whale, while "CND" was sprayed on the tail of another. James Gilbert, of East Lindsey district council, said it was "very unfortunate" that activists had targeted the dead whales. "It's incredibly sad to graffiti such a beautiful animal," he said. The council has applied for a licence from the Marine Management Organisation to remove the carcasses as soon as postmortem examinations are complete.

    That is not expected to happen before Tuesday. "They have been cordoned off. The very clear message we're giving to people is while we understand people do want to come and have a look because it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, please don't touch. We put all the cordons in place first thing Saturday morning but some people do have the enthusiasm to want to touch," Gilbert said.

    He estimated that crowds "in the low thousands" had been drawn to Skegness over the weekend to see the whales. As he spoke, a crowd of around 100 spectators had gathered around the two whales found side by side on the beach as a scientist from the Zoological Society carried out his work. Gilbert added: "It's an educational experience for some people.

    It's just incredibly sad to see such beautiful animals in that space at the same time. "There's no doubt about it - there's an awful lot of people in the resort and quite a few people have come here because of the whales. Skegness, for the past few days - although it's a very sad reason why - has been all over the broadcast media, print media and people have certainly come as a result of hearing and reading about it." The innards of one of the whales spilled out on to the beach when scientists cut into its carcass on Monday morning. Witnesses reported a "huge blast of air" from the body as marine biologists used a probe during initial examinations.

    The release of the gases caused the whale's intestines to spill out from its body on to the beach. Scientists from the Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP), who took samples of skin, blubber, teeth and blood from the Hunstanton whale, will examine the Skegness bodies. Scientists from the Zoological Society were on Monday carrying out postmortem examinations on the Skegness whales to find out how they died.

    Sperm whales are deep sea creatures and can easily become disoriented if they get into shallow water.

  • A new president for an expired status quo By now most of us have heard the news: Stanford s 11 th president, selected by the Presidential Search Committee after six months and thousands of hours reviewing prospective candidates in a comprehensive, inclusive global search, will be Canadian neuroscientist and former faculty member Marc Tessier-Lavigne. 1 On Facebook, the uproar in response to his selection was immediate. In the hours after Stanford s announcement of its next president, I watched the storm of comments and reactions, some indignant, some resigned, some sarcastic. In a surprisingly short amount of time, articles cropped up in response: Stanford Political Journal s disappointment in a lost presidential opportunity, and The Stanford Review s criticism of students knee jerk reactions and tirades. 2 3 The reason for the outrage?

    Like every other President selected in Stanford s 125 year history, Marc Tessier-Lavigne is a white man. I m not interested in this column about speculating about candidates, about which candidate is/was better, should have been chosen, etc. Rather, I want to unpack that knee jerk reaction the Review so dryly commented on, and explore just why so many students are unimpressed with the Presidential Search Committee s decision.

    Over the last two years, injustices and inequities on this campus have grown in salience for most people here. Now, more than ever, we are aware of the lack of gender-neutral bathrooms, the prevalence of microaggressions in classrooms and houses, the vitriol of Yik Yak and our lack of mental health resources. Movements like Who s Teaching Us?

    bring to light systemic inequities in the racial and gender makeup of our university, the difficulties of underrepresentation that marginalized communities at Stanford face, and an explosive year of activism, protests, advocacy, trauma and conflict brought massive issues of systemic racism, police brutality, occupation, violence and oppression onto campus. 4 And our next president is a white man. We know that Stanford values its academics, its liberal arts program and scientific excellence, and those other characteristics it boasts about so frequently on admissions brochures. Tessier-Lavigne, like President John Hennessy before him, is undoubtedly able to maintain Stanford s empire in these ways.

    But in picking a white man, competent as he may be, the Presidential Search Committee sends a clear message that it values that kind of status quo, and that they have no major plans for change on this campus. As society s issues bleed unstoppably onto campus, many of us see Tessier-Lavigne as representative of Stanford s desire to reinforce the bubble with plexiglass, hunker down and hope that after the dust settles, it ll all be business as usual again. Of course, this interpretation could be wrong.

    Tessier-Lavigne could turn out to be a strong advocate for queer and trans people on campus, galvanize faculty and institutional structure towards racial justice and decolonization and champion accessibility for first-generation students, low income students, disabled and neurodivergent students and the like. Tessier-Lavigne could interact critically and intentionally with social justice movements and the world outside Stanford, take a stance, steer our massive endowment towards bettering disadvantaged communities, push for divestment from fossil fuels, private prisons and companies complicit in occupation. But even typing that out I find myself doubting that any of it could happen, and I don t think I m alone in thinking that.

    For students who desperately need change on this campus, we have grown to distrust the red-tape, bureaucratic machinations of a university that has been slow in supporting our communities and quick in dismissing our needs. So what now, moving forward? The Daily reports that during his announcement conference, Tessier-Lavigne touched upon fostering an inclusive campus community, the health of the campus environment and diversity; addressing sexual assault; and making the University accessible to all students regardless of financial need.

    In the official announcement made by Stanford, Tessier-Lavigne s stated that, In coming months, I plan to listen and learn from faculty, students, staff, trustees and alumni, to understand more fully the many opportunities and challenges facing the university, and to hear their aspirations for this great institution. We as students need to hold him accountable to that. People are frustrated now, and rightfully so but it s even more important now not to let our desire for something different fizzle out into apathy.

    When fall quarter 2016 begins, it s our job to remember the 125 years of white men Stanford has made its presidents and hold Tessier-Lavigne accountable to the change we want to see, to the change that, with any luck, he wants to see as well. We need to set a high bar for our next president, one that challenges him and our community to transform as an institution, one that pushes him and all of us to reconsider Stanford s role in the changing times ahead.

  • 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.

The Spirit of Enterprise Awards 2015 is organised by enterpriseGY, Great Yarmouth Borough Council s business support service, and is a chance for top-performing businesses of all sizes, sectors and ages to step into the spotlight. Interest in the prestigious awards scheme has been growing since entries opened on Tuesday, June 23.

    Businesses have until 4pm on Friday, September 11 to put themselves forward in the various categories. It is free-of-charge to enter and finalists will be profiled in a supplement in the Great Yarmouth Mercury, with winners appearing in a further supplement. The winner of each category, plus the winner of the overall 2015 Business of the Year Award, will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony, at the Town Hall on Friday, November 20.

There is also a new category for 2015, Great Family Owned Business. Each award is backed by a local organisation.

  • Advent Calendar Day 5 December 5th My fifth Advent calendar door has now opened revealing rocks that represent strength, safety, serenity and security. Family and friends build their lives on a rock of trust and the parts that fall away still contain that element of togetherness. Thank you for your lovely comments, I'm afraid time is against me with the daily posts to reply back but I do appreciate and smile with every single one.

    Don't forget to tick the box below to let me know that you are keeping with me on this journey.

    Enjoy your day.

  • Adventure Smart..

    top tips for Cycling Adventuring! When started what I call Super Touring (Getting to somewhere as quickly as possible via Bicycle) I never knew about what to take, or what I d need. I have only ever adventured Solo and Unsupported. Through trial and error I have learn t a lot of lessons, here are my top tips!

    NEVER OVER PACK! I m so bad for this, taking to much. Don t pack lots PACK SMART .

    Mountain Bike Clips in shoes and pedals can double up as your normal shoes. Only take the clothes you need, the minute you have asked yourself will I need this normally you don t. Try not to overload in spares unless you have to.

    I took way to much weight in spares on a trip across Europe, you will find bike shops everywhere, just pick up things if you need them. Remember shaving these tiny bits of weight off you kit can help you drop kilograms while riding. It doesn t seem much but over 1000 s of miles you can shave days off.

    If your interested in what my kit list looks for a short speedy trip here it is . Super Touring Kit! 1 HAVE A SAFETY! Some trips I ve been on have been a surprise for a loved one, for example my London to Paris 24 2 was a present for my Sisters Wedding.

    It had to be a secret so I told one friend. He was my safety net, he was only a phone call away if I was in trouble. He also knew if he did not hear from me in a couple days to come and find me.

    You never phone when your phone might break, be stolen or you might have an accident, so be safe. THINK SHORT TERM! Whenever I have been away, I always concentrate on 2 goals, LONG TERM and SHORT TERM.

    Long term goals are where you want to end up eventually. Like I knew on my 10 Countries in 10 Days trip id have to end up in Italy. That was my long term and final goal.

    Short term, I took day by day so for example I would say ok Robbie get to Brussels today, then Luxembourg tomorrow these were my short term goals. The best advice I can give you is plan the night before, don t schedule to far ahead. See how you feel and approach each day as it comes.

    I ve seen some great cyclists fail due to over planning and over riding. SLEEP TIGHT! A proper night sleep will do much more for you in the long run.

    I am a very big fan of Hostels instead of camping for these reasons . Sleeping in a bed, a good warm nights sleep and a shower will set you up for a great day riding. Camping gear is heavy, do you want to be carrying the weight all day. -Food is available and you have the added security.

    Advice from the locals about which way to go next will help you plan the next day. I prefer a hostel to camping in 90% of situations. Think about all the time you lose when your finding a place to camp, setting up your tent, sourcing food, packing up you tent and riding on a crap nights sleep.

    I find when covering cross country challenges you benefit so much for from a 8 a night hostel. INSURE YOUR BIKE! You must be crazy if you don t insure your bike, I am a firm believer in I will ride better and quicker knowing I have the security.

    Whether I m cycling to the local shop or around the world. Your bike could have cost 100 or 8000 respect and insure your bike. I m with Yellow Jersey 3 , I know if my bike breaks or something happens they have my back and my adventure doesn t have to stop.

    Click the picture below to get your insurance quote TRUST YOUR INSTINCT! On many trips I ve planned great routes and made sure every minor detail is correct then I ve got into Europe and a road has been closed and messed it all up. The most useful tool you will have is your instinct, second to that a compass.

    In a situation like this you need to trust yourself and go with what feels right, as long as you use the compass to head the the right general direction you will be fine. What did we do before we had Sat Nav s . find out.

  • 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.

  • Agencies assess damage so far 6 December 2013 With the tides in some parts of Norfolk yesterday reaching higher than in 1953, agencies are continuing to assess the impact the flood waters have had on homes, businesses and flood defences as they prepare for the risk of further flooding today. The Environment Agency have confirmed that flood warnings have been reduced from Severe Flood Warnings to Flood Warnings, however the advice remains that people who have been evacuated should continue to stay away from their homes until they are told it is safe to return. Deputy Chief Constable Charlie Hall, who is leading the multi-agency response said: "This has been a serious incident which could have been far worse had it not been for the support and cooperation of the public and all the agencies working to keep people safe. "In places, water levels were higher than those experienced in the flooding of 1953, when many people lost their lives.

    Thankfully that has not been the case on this occasion, a combination of improved defences in place and the concerted efforts of the community, the emergency services and the agencies that have worked to support the evacuation and keep people informed. "The widespread evacuation was based on the high risk of severe flooding and was essential in ensuring the public s safety. A night time rescue operation would have placed both the public and emergency services at far greater risk. We are hugely grateful to the public for following the advice given and taking the steps needed to keep them and their neighbours safe.

    With two high tides still to come we would remind those who have been evacuated not to return home until they are told it is safe to do so. Public Health Advice Advice offered by Public Health Norfolk to those already affected by the flooding includes: If you re caught in a flood, do not consume food that has been contaminated by flood waters. Do not let young children play in flood water and try to avoid coming into contact with flood water.

    If you do come in contact with flood water, wash hands using clean water and soap and be aware of young children putting their hands in their mouth. Washing hands is the best way to get rid of bugs. Keep in touch with elderly and vulnerable friends, family and neighbours in affected areas, ask about their welfare and offer assistance when possible.

    Further health information and advice is available online from Public Health England. Facts and figures During yesterday and overnight: Norfolk Fire and Rescue service attended 116 incidents including nine flood rescues. More than 600 people have made use of the various rest centres around the county.

    10,000 properties were visited with residents advised to evacuate. Highways have assisted with 21 fallen trees, 11 road closures and are currently assessing bridges in the west of the county. A number of public services have been disrupted by last night s high tides.

    23 schools and colleges are closed as a result of localised flooding or the risk of further flooding Caister Recycling Centre is closed For more information on service disruptions visit Road closures Some localised road closures remain in place and Highways advise that some roads may not remain open. West Norfolk - Bridge closures at Wiggenhall St Germans (due to cracking) and Purfleet Place (closed in both directions at the Customs House) King s Lynn - King Street is closed at the Tuesday Marketplace.

    North Norfolk - Mill Common Road, Walcott Road, Keswick Road, Bacton Road, at the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, Beach Road, at Cley, up towards Salthouse We continue to advise people to stay away from the coast and coastal paths as these may be dangerous and Cromer Pier also remains closed. Previous releases 6 December 2013 I 7.05 Although the first day response to Norfolk s flood emergency has generally gone well, agencies are warning that the danger is not yet over with a risk of further flooding today. Both fire and police are grateful for the mutual aid provided by colleagues from other parts of the country, many of whom will be back on duty shortly, as the flood risk enters its second day.

    Further high tides are expected at 8am in King s Lynn, 8.30am at Cromer, 8.41am at Wells and 10.44am at Great Yarmouth. Tonight s predicted high tides are: 8.44am at King s Lynn, 8.36am at Cromer, 8.52am at Wells and 10.31am in Great Yarmouth. Local authorities are stressing that this event is not over yet and there is a risk of further flooding, with particular concern in the Hunstanton area where some of the shingle bank has been swept away.

    Emergency services and other agencies remain on the ground as they look to assess any damage caused as a result of last night s high tides while preparing for subsequent high tides. Some localised road closures remain in place. In West Norfolk , bridge closures at Wiggenhall St Germans (due to cracking) and Purfleet Place (closed in both directions at the Customs House).

    In King s Lynn , King Street is closed at the Tuesday Marketplace. In North Norfolk , Mill Common Road, Walcott Road, Keswick Road, Bacton Road, at the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, and Beach Road, at Cley, up towards Salthouse are all closed. The Poacher s Pocket Pub, on the Bacton Road, caravans which were in the car parked have floated into the road, blocking the road all the way to Walcott Road.

    Reports have also been received that Mundesley Cliff Vale Road car park has been washed into the sea. In Wells-next-Sea, the road from Northfield Avenue to East Quay is also blocked. At the time of this press release being issued, there were no road closures in Great Yarmouth, but keep visiting this website for details or follow us on Twitter.

    The message from all agencies in Norfolk is that there is potential for further flood damage during today, until tomorrow morning, and that people who have been evacuated should stay away from home for the time being. More than 600 people have made use of the various rest centres around the county, and 10,000 properties have been visited with residents advised to evacuate. People have generally responded well to following advice - but one issue of concern has been people out 'sightseeing' along the river banks in Riverside Road in Great Yarmouth, who have put themselves at risk by standing too close to the breaking waves.

    Several Hemsby beach chalets have collapsed while in South Yarmouth, flood water has breached several terraced houses, despite sandbags being in place, with water coming through front doors and floorboards. The true extent of the damage is not yet known. With further tidal surges expected, the advice remains that people who have been evacuated should continue to stay away from their homes until they are advised it is safe to return.

    The emergency services, together with district councils and other government agencies, appreciate the good common sense shown by Norfolk residents at this difficult time and would wish to reassure people that all agencies are continuing to work together to keep services running as far as practically possible. > > Flooding: Day one messages

  • All at sea: five great UK coastal walks Tenby to Laugharne, South-west Wales This gently undulating 18 mile amble along the Wales Coast Path links Pembrokeshire s liveliest seaside resort with the small town where Dylan Thomas lived and which this year has been celebrating the centenary of his birth. Along the way are picnic-friendly clifftops as well as small resorts such as Amroth and Wiseman s Bridge, and the usually empty Marros Sands (where you might see petrified trees and the half-buried skeleton of a boat). Pendine, thanks to its wide, shallow tide, has some of the warmest waves in the UK.

    At weekends, the MoD allows walkers to do the final Pendine-Laugharne stretch via the beach; at other times you have to follow the WCP dragon shell signs into Laugharne and toast your arrival with a pint of Felinfoel Double Dragon Wales s oldest beer; the brewery owner is a local at Brown s Hotel. Laugharne hosts two Dylan Thomas-themed festivals on the last two weekends of September (details at ). 1 2 Portree to the Storr, Isle of Skye The Old Man of Storr and the sea beyond.

    Photograph: Emmanuel Coupe/PA Some dramatic costal landscapes look best from the sea, but this six-mile walk gives you distant and close-up views of the impressive basalt needles found at the top of a rocky hill known as the Storr, used as a location in the 2012 movie Prometheus. The pinnacles rise like obelisks from the main outcrop, with the Old Man of Storr, at 60 metres, the tallest of the group. This walk starts at Portree, where there are lots of hotels and B&Bs, and follows the clifftops to Bearreraig Bay.

    The land can be soggy and boggy and there are steep sections, but this is essentially a linear walk. Once you arrive, have a picnic or do a loop around the formation (OS Explorer 408 map will help you navigate) and catch the 57A or 57C bus (or walk) back. The Scottish walkers who are campaigning for their own coast path following the English and Welsh projects have omitted to include Skye and most other Scottish islands, in their plans: . 3 4 Cromer to Hunstanton, Norfolk The Norfolk seaside town of Cromer. Photograph: Fabio De Paola East Anglia has a reputation for flatness, but the dramatic north Norfolk coast is as imposing as any on these isles. Walk all 45 miles between these two popular seaside towns enjoying the local crab and good ales as you march or just choose a section and use the half-hourly Coasthopper buses to get back.

    Along the way are wide sandy beaches, fresh- and salt-water marshes, barrier islands, nature reserves and birdwatching opportunities look out for bitterns and marsh harriers in the reedbeds as well as avocets, terns and, in autumn, Brent geese. Wells-next-the-Sea, one of the prettiest towns along the way, has campsites and a good youth hostel. On August 30-31, nearby Holkham Hall hosts the North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival . 5 6 7 Southport to Crosby, Merseyside Another Place created by the artist Antony Gormley in Crosby. Photograph: Christopher Furlong/Getty Images On the 12-mile Sefton Coastal Path between Southport a would-be posh resort that looks a bit more like Blackpool with each passing year and Crosby the last leafy suburb before you penetrate Liverpool s sprawl is the most extensive dune system in England. From Ainsdale beach, where Ginger McCain put Red Rum through his paces, you can explore the sandy slopes some fixed, others continually shifting, with around 450 plants and flowers protected inside the Ainsdale Sand Dunes national nature reserve .

    You might see red squirrels while strolling through the pinewoods of Formby nature reserve , and there are also natterjack toads but they are well-camouflaged and generally nocturnal. On arrival in Crosby you ll be met by the 100 static sea-gazers of Antony Gormley s Another Place . Dense conurbations, heaving traffic, pockets of poverty and footballer-fashioned villas lie minutes away from this path, a superb example of the value of public ownership of the coastline.

    Frequent trains operate along the Liverpool-Southport line should you wish to shorten your walk. 8 9 10 11 Eastbourne to Hastings, East Sussex Beachy Head. Photograph: Patrick Ingrand/Getty Images The recently launched 20-mile Coastal Culture Trail aims to get people to combine their breezy walks and bike rides to landmarks such as Beachy Head, Pevensey Castle and Battle, with visits to the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, and Towner Gallery in Eastbourne.

    There is plenty of accommodation available en route, from the Victorian opulence of the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne 12 the only five-star on the south coast to t he Laindons 13 , a luxury B&B in a former coaching inn in Hastings. There are food options for every palate and wallet, along with tips on family, luxury or more active trails. With some of the UK s mildest weather and a good chance of a westerly wind to push you on your way, this is a good option for late summer and autumn walking or cycling. 14 References ^ ( ^ ( ^ ( ^ ( ^ Coasthopper ( ^ Norfolk Food and Drink Festival ( ^ ( ^ Ainsdale Sand Dunes national nature reserve ( ^ Formby nature reserve ( ^ Antony Gormley s Another Place ( ^ ( ^ Grand Hotel in Eastbourne ( ^ he Laindons ( ^ (

  • All things bright and beautifulโ€ฆ With spring just around the corner, those of us with a passion for gardening will be planning this year s planting. Briarfields head gardener, Jimmy Goddard of Goddards Gardens 1 , has already been busy working on landscaping for our new driveway, which will really come into its own, once the growing season gets underway. We recently caught up with Jimmy who runs his local business creating beautiful planting schemes in private gardens and public spaces.

    He started the company in July 1999, straight after college, to combine his love of the great outdoors with working in the Norfolk area, which he adores so much. He says, I fell in love with the Norfolk coast, its vast beaches, wide open skies and stunning scenery . While out and about, he s joined by one of Goddards most valued employees, Teal, who has been Jimmy s canine companion for four years now.

    Jimmy s passion and flair for planting spaces that blend beautifully with their natural setting is evident in the wonderful grounds at Briarfields. Once Jimmy s finished for the day he says he finds Briarfields cakes, super tempting , and he and Teal are both welcomed inside to relax and enjoy some well-earned refreshments while they survey the fruits of their labour.

  • Analysis: no way out for deep-diving species The sperm whale spotted this morning on a Norfolk beach is the sixth to become stranded on England s North Sea coast in the past two weeks and the 29th across northwest Europe. They are likely to be part of the same bachelor pod of juvenile males and may have entered the shallow waters of the North Sea while chasing squid. Once in this area, they would have become disorientated and struggled to find their way back out into the deep ocean.

  • 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.

  • Another whale 'spotted off Norfolk coast' ยซ Shropshire Star Another whale may be in trouble in shallow waters off the British coast, rescuers have said. The latest report comes after a bull died at Hunstanton, Norfolk, on Thursday. This was the 30th sperm whale death in the North Sea this year.

    British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) said on Tuesday that it was investigating the latest sighting off north Norfolk. A spokeswoman said the sighting had been referred to them but there were no further details on precise location or species. Last week's whale death followed the discovery of four dead whales washed up on the Lincolnshire coast and another at Hunstanton last month.

    Others have been found in France, the Netherlands and Germany. The Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme, which examines all whale, dolphin and porpoise strandings in the UK, is working to establish why the whales came ashore and how they died. This could help establish what the whales, thought to have come from the same bachelor pod normally living off the west coast of Norway, were doing in the North Sea.

    One theory is that the male whales could have taken a wrong turn while heading south to find females or been lured by food. Stephen Marsh, operations manager at the BDMLR, said: "At the moment the report from the coastguard is that the whale is still free-swimming. "Because we're come up to spring tide, the waters may be a bit deeper but that can be a double-edged sword because you get very high high tides and very low low tides. "If it does strand the story will be very similar to what we've had recently - the whale will have very little chance of relaunching and, if it does, its chances of survival will be very low." A member of the Mundesley Coastguard Rescue Team contacted the UK Coastguard just after 10am this morning to report the whale was 300 to 400 yards off shore. A spokesman said: "The whale, which is the seventh whale in that area, was reported to be alive and thrashing about in the shallow water." Mike Puplett, of the UK Coastguard, said: "We are advising people to keep at a safe distance from the whale, so we do not cause any further distress to it. "We are doing all we can to assist the authorities and allow those with rescue experience to do their work." The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said later that the operation was being stood down as there had been no sightings of the whale for 90 minutes.

    Keith Griffin, station officer for the Happisburgh and Mundesley Coastguard Team, said: "We've carried out an extensive search and are confident that if the whale was in that search area, we'd have found it. "Low tide has now passed so with a bit of luck it will return to deeper waters and stand a chance of survival." The next low tide, when the whale is most likely to become stranded, is expected at about 2am on Wednesday.

    Once you have got past these three factors then a whole new world is open to you. When it comes to determining how much you want to spend on your new hobby or business venture then it is essential this is given some very serious thought. The budget you have will determine how big your collection will be and also to some extent what types of antiques you should start collecting.

    Certain types of antiques will of course cost less and so you are able to build up your collection quicker while of course the certain items such as furniture will cost more and so you are limiting yourself to a smaller collection. Storage is another main consideration when it comes to starting out in antiques, if you are going into business then you will probably have a bigger scope when it comes to showing and storing your collections as you will have acquired property specifically for your antiques. However if you are starting out small scale or are trading from home via online then careful consideration will have to be given as to the type of antiques you are going into unless you wish to turn your home into a very cramped mini museum.

    Some collections such as antique jewellery require very little space whilst furniture of course will require adequate room. How much you know about antiques will also determine what you start out in, it would be in your best interests to start out with antiques that interest you, for example a love of jewellery or fine art. If you already have an interest in certain types then learning everything you need to know on the subject will be a whole lot easier and of course much more pleasant a process.

    Knowledge is of the utmost importance when going into the world of antiques and is essential if you are going into antiques as a business, if this is your livelihood then you are in it to make a profit and of course you can only do this by securing your antiques at the best possible price and in the best condition for its period and age. If you are going into antiques on a large or small scale either working from premises you have secured solely for your antiques business or have your antiques at home then insurance should be given some considerable thought. It is imperative that you have enough insurance to cover your antique collection and this will have to be taken through a specialist insurance company.

    There is plenty of advice regarding insurers to be found online and auction houses will also put you in touch with specialists, but it is essential however big or small that you are insured.

On Wednesday 15 th October they are taking over 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.

  • Are vibrations from offshore wind turbine farms killing whales ... Environmentalists say navy sonar hurts whales, but ignore impacts of offshore wind farms Dead whale on European beach. For more such images see Paul Driessen and Mark Duchamp Between January 9 and February 4 this year, 29 sperm whales got stranded and died on English, German and Dutch beaches. Environmentalists and the news media offered multiple explanations except the most obvious and likely one: offshore wind farms.

    Indeed, that area has the world s biggest concentration of offshore wind turbines, and there is ample evidence that their acoustic pollution can interfere with whale communication and navigation. However, Britain s Guardian looked for answers everywhere but in the right place. That s not surprising, as it tends to support wind energy no matter the cost to people or the environment.

    After consulting with a marine environmental group, the paper concluded 1 : The North Sea acts as a trap. It s virtually impossible for whales to find their way out through the narrow English Channel. No it s not.

    These intelligent animals would naturally have found their way to and through the Channel by simply following the coast of England or continental Europe. But the author seems determined to pursue his explanation, even when it becomes increasingly illogical. The trapped whales become dehydrated because they obtain their water from squid, he argues, before acknowledging that the dead Dutch and German animals were well-fed, and that the North Sea s squid population has increased in recent years.

    The article discards Royal Navy sonar and explosives, because big naval exercises in UK waters are unusual in midwinter. Finally, the author concludes with this quote from his purported expert: When there s a mass stranding, it s always wise to look at possible human effects. But, at the moment, I don t see anything pointing in that direction.

    He should look a bit harder. Not everyone is so blind. Indeed, researchers at the University of St.

    Andrews have found that the noise made by offshore wind farms can interfere with a whale s sonar, and can in tragic cases see them driven onto beaches where they often die, a UK Daily Mail article 2 observed. It is certainly possible that permanent damage to the cetaceans middle and inner ears, and thus to their built-in sonar, can result from large air guns 3 used during seismic surveys and from violent bursts of noise associated with pilings being rammed into the rock bed. Wind promoters themselves admit that their pile-driving can be heard up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) underwater, and can be harmful to whales that happen to be nearby.

    But unless these injuries cause external bleeding, they are very difficult to detect. Natural phenomena such as seaquakes, underwater volcanic eruptions and meteorites crashing into the oceans have likely been the cause of whale beachings throughout history, by injuring the animals inner ears and sonar organs, frightening and disorienting them, and causing them to seek refuge in shallow waters. In more recent years, military exercises using mid-frequency sonar have been linked quite clearly to the disorientation and death of beaked whales, says The Guardian .

    Low frequency sonar can be even more dangerous, the Natural Resource Defense Council asserts. Some systems operate at more than 235 decibels, the NRDC has said 4 , producing sound waves that can travel across tens or even hundreds of miles of ocean. During testing off the California coast, noise from the Navy s main low-frequency sonar system was detected across the breadth of the northern Pacific Ocean.

    The U.S. Navy itself has recognized the danger that sonar systems represent for marine mammals. As reported in Science magazine 5 : In a landmark study, the U.S.

    Navy has concluded that it killed at least six whales in an accident involving common ship-based sonar. The finding, announced late last month by the Navy and the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), may complicate Navy plans to field a powerful new sonar system designed to detect enemy submarines at long distances, despite how important that system and its submarine and surface ship counterparts are for national security.

    It has been said the low-frequency active sonar from this system would be the loudest sound ever put into the seas, The Guardian states 6 . But wind turbines also emit low frequency noise, including dangerous infrasound. At sea, these vibrations are transmitted via the masts to the water, and via the pilings to the rock bed.

    They can travel up to 31 miles (50 kilometers). Granted, the acoustic pollution caused by sonar particularly powerful navy systems is greater than that from wind turbines. But wind turbine noise and infrasound are nearly constant, last as long as the turbines are in place and come from multiple directions, as in the areas where the whales were recently stranded.

    On land, although the wind industry continues to deny any culpability, evidence is mounting that low frequency and particularly infrasound waves emitted by wind turbines have significant adverse effects on local residents, including sleep deprivation, headaches, tachycardia (abnormally rapid heart rates) and a dozen other ailments. Underwater, a milieu where sound waves travel much farther, it would be irresponsible and unscientific to argue that whales are not affected by operating wind turbines, all the more because cetaceans use their sonar to see what s around them As scientists have pointed out 7 , It is likely that acoustic masking by anthropogenic sounds is having an increasingly prevalent impact on animals access to acoustic information that is essential for communication and other important activities, such as navigation and prey/predator detection. Blinded by this masking, whales and dolphins could seek refuge in shallow waters, away from big ships and killer whales.

    There, low tides could surprise them, as large pelagic species have limited experience with tidal flows. In September 2012, 19 pilot whales, a minke whale and a large sei whale beached on the coast of Scotland opposite an area where air guns were being used by ships surveying the ocean floor, as a prelude to installing offshore wind farms. A second pod of 24 pilot whales was spotted in shallow water by Cellardyke around the same time, but it returned to sea without beaching, the article noted 8 .

    Offshore turbines were also associated with 9 many stillborn baby seals washing up onshore near the UK s Scroby Sands wind farm in June 2005. It s hard not to conclude the wind farm is responsible, the author concluded. Many more similar deaths may well have been caused by wind farms at sea.

    The scientific and environmental literature abounds in warnings about risks to marine mammals from man-made noise. Modern 8-megawatt offshore turbines are 656 feet (200 meters) above the waves; their rotating blades sweep across a 538-foot (164-meter) diameter. Those enormous blades create powerful pulsating infrasound and exact a toll 10 on many species of marine birds, and even on bats that are attracted 11 to the turbines as far as 9 miles (14 km) offshore.

    In a February 2005 letter, the Massachusetts Audubon Society estimated that the proposed Cape Cod wind project alone would kill up to 6,600 marine birds each year, including the roseate tern, which is on the endangered list. Do we really want to add marine mammals to the slaughter of birds and bats, by expanding this intermittent, harmful, enormously expensive and heavily subsidized energy source in marine habitats? In addition, having forests of these enormous turbines off our coasts will greatly increase the risk of collisions for surface vessels, especially in storms or dense fog, as well as for submarines.

    It will also impair radar and sonar detection of hostile ships and low-flying aircraft, including potential terrorists, and make coastal waters more dangerous for Coast Guard helicopters and other rescue operations. The offshore wind industry makes no sense from an economic, environmental, defense or shipping perspective. To exempt these enormous installations from endangered species and other laws that are applied with a heavy hand to all other industries and even to the U.S.

    and Royal Navy is irresponsible, and even criminal. Paul Driessen is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow ( 12 ) and author of Eco-Imperialism 13 : Green power Black death. Mark Duchamp is president of Save the Eagles International 14 .

    Military veteran and arm amputee Kirk Bowett will be leading a team of six, including wife Carole, on a 47 mile walk from Hunstanton to Cromer in Norfolk starting at 8am on Saturday, October 3 and finishing just 24 hours later. The team are raising money for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans. The team of six is made up of friends and family, with Kirk s employer Landmarc Solutions kindly providing support in the way of food and a support vehicle.

    Kirk, (37) said he was inspired when he saw other fundraisers completing the walk and wanted to give something back to Blesma. He said: I am a limbless veteran who has been a Member of Blesma for two years. After completing 16 years of service with the Army back in 2010 I pursued a career in the Middle East as a private security contractor.

    Whilst working in Iraq in 2013 my vehicle was hit by a blast whilst escorting clients to Baghdad. The incident resulted in serious injuries for me including loss of my left arm below elbow and the reconstruction of my right foot. My driver was also killed in the incident which lives with me as I move on with my life.

    Since recovering from my injuries I have been welcomed in to a unique club of inspirational individuals. Blesma has provided help decorating our new home and in 2 years I have had the opportunity to visit Colorado twice, on winter and summer expeditions with other injured veterans. Being a veteran in civilian life can be a hard adaptation, and that coupled with limb loss and PTSD can leave people extremely isolated, even if they do not show it on the surface.

    Blesma has enabled me to meet fellow veterans who have developed a unique brother/sisterhood and support network. I feel privileged and honoured to be a member of this unique and precious organisation. The team are aiming to raise around 800 for Blesma, but are hoping to beat this target.

  • Assets seized from Lincoln couple who stole from disabled people A charity boss and his wife from Lincoln who stole thousands of pounds from vulnerable disabled people were on Monday, February 22 ordered to hand over their assets. Peter Childs, the former chairman of the Lincoln & District Mencap charity, and his wife Alison were each jailed for three years back in April 2014 1 after being convicted of a string of theft and fraud charges. The couple, who have since served their sentences, appeared before Lincoln Crown Court at a hearing at which their available assets were confiscated.

    The money is to be used to compensate their 15 victims who were clients of the charity which was independent of Royal Mencap. Recorder Tom Rochford ruled that Peter Childs benefited from his crimes by 295,000 and ordered that his available assets of 28,981 should be confiscated. Alison Childs was ruled to have benefited from crime by 270,000 and her available assets of 18,179 were also confiscated.

    The assets include a chalet at a holiday complex at Hunstanton, Norfolk, which was ordered to be sold with the proceeds confiscated. The couple were given three months to pay with the threat of a further six month jail sentence if the money is not handed over. Recorder Rochford, in making his ruling, said: Compensation is to be paid from the confiscation proceeds.

    The compensation will got to the 15 victims who are to receive amounts of between 690 and 3,550. At the original trial back in 2014 a jury was told that Peter Childs systematically exploited vulnerable disabled people who were clients of the charity. He pocketed their disability living allowance and their cold weather payments and persuaded them to hand over their life savings telling them the money would be safe with Lincoln & District Mencap.

    On top of that, for years he overcharged clients by up to 100% for gas and electricity bills in their supported housing. The jury heard that Childs was assisted in the thefts by his wife, who worked as accommodation manager for the organisation, with the pair pocketing more than 200,000 over a six year period. The couple enjoyed a comfortable life in their rented farm house where they kept their two horses and bred German Shepherd dogs.

    But they were caught out after Peter Childs suffered a stroke which left him in a wheelchair and unable to look after himself. In his absence other staff at the charity discovered discrepancies in the accounts and called in police. Peter Childs, 61 at the time of his trial, and Alison Childs, 48, who at the time lived in Nettleham were each convicted by a jury of 12 charges of theft and 14 charges of fraud by abuse of position between December 2005 and December 2011.

    Alison Childs was found guilty of a further fraud charge. They had denied the charges. Peter Childs had previously admitted two charges of fraud.

    Judge Sean Morris, in his sentencing remarks, told them: These were a mean and calculated series of thefts. You were both in positions of the utmost trust. You were entrusted to look after the best interests of some of the most vulnerable people.

    This was confidence fraud involving the deliberate targeting of a large number of victims. It became a way of life for you. I am convinced that if that stroke had not happened the overwhelming likelihood is that this would still be going on.

  • AstraZeneca (AZN.L) on Investor Soireebut glad I waited as bought in at 4045 late on Tuesday. Nice bounce since Berenberg ups AstraZeneca to 'buy'; says oncology pipeline will drive growth Date: Thursday 02 Jul 2015 LONDON (ShareCast) - Berenberg upgraded AstraZeneca to 'buy' from 'hold' and raised the price target to 5,200p from 4,800p, saying that Oncology will drive future growth. Berenberg noted that AZN shares reached highs of 4,800p during last year's Pfizer approach.

    Since then, sentiment has weakened and the shares are not far off 12-month lows. "Nevertheless, we think the oncology pipeline remains robust, and will underpin a return to double-digit growth beyond 2017, and this is not adequately reflected in the valuation today," said the bank. It said the company has made good progress in its oncology pipeline. Lynparza is approved in the US and Europe, and should be a blockbuster drug, said the bank, which expects the oncology franchise to grow from a low of $2.8bn this year to $6.9bn by 2013.

    In terms of important oncology catalysts in the next 12 months, it said pivotal data for AZD9291 are expected soon and the drug could be approved by year end.

  • 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 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. 1 advert ASD Consultants, Engineering, Architecture, Surveying Related References ^ (
