Every year, over the two weeks before the

Carnival, Cromer VEO run free events for
children and on Wednesday 12th August they
were run by Libby & Tony with volunteers on
the East Beach.
15 groups took part in the Competition to build
a Sandcastle fit for a King or Queen, sponsored
by Cromers No 1 Fish & Chip Restaurant and
Cromer Town Council.
The competition kicked off at low tide for the
sandcastles to be built before the tide rolled in.
All bar number ten got washed away until about
five minutes later, when the tide took the last
remaining one along with all the others.

From The Editor

With this wonderful weather I really
appreciate where I live and this
past week I have had my nieces
and their families to stay.
We have been lucky enough to rent
a beach hut on Cromer west prom
from the council, very reasonably.
This has been really helpful storage
base, with Lornas youngest Orla,
just 6 mths old, there are nappies
and bottles then bags of towels,
spades, balls for Harry & Ebony
and clothes changes when
paddling is misjudged!
When bad weather threatened we
visited Woodland (See page 19)
this park has everything to make
inclement weather immaterial.
I also visited Liz at Selbrigg Lodge
(See page 14) with my elderly friend
who has arthritis & painful feet, she
has now had 2 sessions of Paraffin
wax treatment on her feet.
At her annual at her diabetic check,
when she told them about the great
improvement in her walking and
the reduction of pain the nurse


Nut Lane, Cromer. NR27 0JN
tel: 01263 579 202

concurred that paraffin wax is a

penetrating heat which can be of
great benefit to arthritis sufferers.
I hope that you have all had a great
time at the Cromer Carnival, Philip
was there as usual taking photos.
See them in our next issue!

Enjoy Your Crab Tales

Dear Philip,

It was good meeting you at the 105th anniversary

of the Mothers Union in Mundesley.
You asked for more information regarding the
footpath behind Trafalgar Court that leads down
to the beach, which was severely damaged in the
surge 2 years ago, and closed for safety reasons.
We have been trying to encourage NNDC to
repair and reopen it, but the cost (a survey and
costing have been done) is too great, moreover,
they do not consider it a priority.

We have an online petition of more than 300

signatories & a paper petition (the old-fashioned
sort!) has over 1000, all gleaned from people in
Mundesley, visitors and residents alike.
We also have the support of the parish council
and MP Norman Lamb, and I have yet to hear
of a dissenting voice.
It is evident that we need to organise ourselves
into a charity, then we will be able to raise money,
be accountable and apply for funding.
There are those in our little group who have
experience and expertise in such matters, but
we need to formalise ourselves.
To this end we held a public meeting in the
church rooms in Mundesley on Tuesday 11th
August with the aim for forming a committee
and appointing individuals to particular tasks.

There will be another meeting next month.

If you would like to attend, please contact
me on the number below.
Mundesley has been lessened by the loss of the
path and many visitors have expressed their
dismay and disappointment.
It is a shame that a path to one of probably the
best beaches in the area is being abandoned.
Yours faithfully,
Harry Hicks.

Dear Editor,

I was always under the impression that doing

a Car Boot Sale involved clearing out all the
unwanted stuff gathering dust around the
house and selling it for a few pennies.
It was always fun in the summer holidays for us
kids to sort out our bedrooms and do a car boot.
Alas, how things have changed!
The genuine car booters seem to be very few &
far between as it appears that the latest trend seems
to involve filling a very large van and /or trailer,
and visiting every car boot sale in the area, on
every day of the week!

These dealers are selling the same stuff at every

sale, taking up the equivalent of 2 or 3 pitches.
My daughter & I went to Mundesley Car Boot
on Wednesday to sell our bits & bobs. We only
live 2 miles away and thought wed try to raise
a few pennies for the holidays.
Unfortunately, on arrival just after 8am, we were
told that the field was full and were turned away.
My daughter was gutted, as was I.
On closer inspection, the first two rows were all
dealers with large vans selling stuff that could
most likely have been purchased in the village
shops. Some had 2 or 3 car lengths as a pitch.
When I asked the officials, I was told, in no
uncertain terms: they are here every week
Does this make them car-booters or market
traders? Is this a market or a car boot sale?
I go to work and pay tax & insurance, but it seems
it is much easier to raise money by keeping the
car loaded up and travelling around the county
every day of the week.
What a shame that an opportunity for myself
& my daughter to have a morning out, ended
with us returning home with a car full of
good-quality stuff!
Maybe it is time for clamping down on the
dealers & regulars who take the fun out of
genuine car-booting, and prefer to stick two
fingers up at the local traders and shops
who have to pay rates?
Yours Sincerely,
Mrs L Jones,

Dear Editor,

We would also like to specifically thank Darren
Walgrove and his staff for generously providing
the refreshments, venue and staff.
If any readers are interested in joining Cromer

Dear Liz,

I enjoyed reading the article about Mundesley

Hospital in Issue 066 most interesting.
I will also read the articles on the web.
I dont know whether you remember but I spoke
to you a few months ago asking if you knew
what the building was previously.
Thanks for the article, I am sure many of your
readers will also find it very interesting
Kind regards,
David Middleton

Dear Editor,

I was interested in the article on Mundesley

Hospital, but sorry to see no mention of
Mr Wynne Edwards.
He was the surgeon & partner with Dr George
Day. He performed many operations, such as
phrenic crush and thoracoplasty in the theatre.
I worked there as a nurse in the early fifties.
The operations were carried out under local
anaesthetics and one of my jobs was to hold
the patient's hand. Dr Barclay from Cromer
was the anaesthetist.
Margaret Lindley SRN. SCM
From the Editor:
We are glad you enjoyed the article and sorry
about leaving Wynne Edwards out but all the
information that could be gleaned from the
web-site would have filled the entire paper.
If you are able to, do look up Mundesley
Hospital on the net and you will find an
enormous amount of fascinating details.

Dear Editor,

The Mundesley & District Branch of the RBL,

Womens Section would like to thank everyone
who supported us at the Mundesley Church
Fete where our tombola raised 480.
Over the past four years we have raised over
18,500 for the RBLWS Benevolent Fund.
The fund awards educational sponsorships and
annuities, family breaks and direct grants for
those who need them and you dont have to
be ex-service personnel to benefit.
Our branch is thriving, with over 100 members
of all ages, covering Mundesley, Gimingham,
Knapton, Trunch and Paston. We also have
members from Southrepps & Nth Walsham.
Fundraising is only part of the work we do; we
work hard at having fun! So as well as meeting
once a month to discuss branch business (over
a cup of tea), there are informative & practical
presentations and sometimes a group outing.
Recently we went aboard the Mississippi paddle
steamer to travel from Horning to Sth Walsham
along the Broads. It was a rather wet chilly July
afternoon, but the camaraderie made the whole
experience quite memorable.

Some of us enjoyed the warmth of the cabin being
entertained by a Dixieland jazz band while others
preferred looking at the riverbank cottages and
other boats go by and waving at the inhabitants.
If you would like to join us, come to our next
branch meeting on Weds 16th Sept. at 1.45pm
in Coronation Hall, Mundesley where there
will be a talk about Snetterton Dogs Trust
and a real pooch or two to cuddle.
Or if you would like to help fundraise at our
Christmas Fayre, Tea Parties, jumble sales
or stalls at local events please contact our
Secretary, Denise Tarry via Facebook
or on: 01263 722 163. A lift may be
possible if transport is a problem.

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Trunch Open Gardens Committee

may I thank everyone who came to our Trunch
Open Gardens & Scarecrow Day on 19th July.
We had a fantastic turnout of people and the sun
certainly shone on us. We still have some monies
to come in but we know we have raised in excess
of 3200.00 for Trunch Village Funds.
The winners of the scarecrow competition made
a scarecrow based on Frozen and they received
a voucher for 20 for their efforts.
Many congratulations and thank you to everyone
who made a scarecrow, opened their gardens or
held an event on The Paddock. A big thank you
must also go to all who helped both before and
on the day to make it such a success.
A Note for diary, next years event will be
held on Sunday 17th July and we hope to
see you all there.
Many thanks
Lyn Bothway

Continued From Front Page

As part of the VEOs childrens week two there

were at least 200 jolly children involved and
about the same number of adults, being happily
Having now been involved with the Crab Line
and Crab Tales for over ten years this was the
first time that I have witnessed the pleasure
that this event gives to so many.

The winning team, now known as the Warren

Team, was a collection of three families who
joined up to take part with around a dozen or
so jolly children.

How did their sandcastle stay up for so long?

I think the answer is the size of the castle and
packing the sand down really hard.
Well done to everyone involved.

Local Charity Of
The Year

Sainsburys of North Walsham have launched

their partnership with their new Local Charity

Representatives from Coastwatch joined staff
from Sainsburys to kick start the fundraising
over a weekend with a Tombola raising 250,
on the Friday a bag pack on Saturday, raising
594 & an awareness/ collection/ recruitment
day on Sunday when customers gave 356.

The the total for the whole weekend was

a terrific 1200 for the stores charity.
Bob White, Station Master at Mundesley, said:
Sainsburys Local Charity of the Year scheme
has made a real difference to many charities over
the last few years and were delighted to have
been selected. We are really looking forward
to getting started & raising awareness of our
cause as well as raising vital funds to continue
our work in the community.
Neil Grainger, Store Manager at Sainsburys
North Walsham, added:
Were really looking forward to working with
National Coastwatch Mundesley over the next

Best VW Splitscreen
Award for JARC

In 2010 JARC bought a 1966 Volkswagen Splitscreen as a restoration project from Lone Star
VW Company at Norwich.
This underwent
a 400 hour full
nut and bolt
leaving nothing
to go amiss.
Most of the
lower body
panels and all
of the floors,
were completely
shot with rust
and needed

Almost all of the interior trim was missing and

it had no engine! It took a long time to source
all of the parts needed to complete the project
but their attention to detail & love for the VW
meant that it could go on to win competitions.
They took the splitscreen to the VW Whitenoise
Event in Suffolk on July 31st for a family weekend
away and to meet other VW enthusiasts.
On the Sunday morning Jamies 2 daughters
Zaranne & Mia Newland pleaded with their
dad to enter the Splitscreen into the Show n
Shine competition, one of the main events of
the weekend with visitors from far and wide.
So, not to disappoint his girls, he drove down
to the arena where the competition took place.
After leaving it in the judging ring all day they
sat to listen for the results to be announced.
One by one the winners of each class were
presented with their awards, with JARC
winning best splitscreen.

Planning Application

The proposed development for Water Lane in

Mundesley, was outlined in a Public Exhibition
in the Coronation Hall, on Friday 14th August
before an application for development is made.

It may have been our only third visit to this

annual show at Sheringham Park, but it has
been running now for nine years.

been the case for far too long, anyway this

show did recharge peolples interest.

On Sunday the 2nd of August along with Lis

daughter we turned up in time to have a very
delicious lunch of beefburgers and ice cream
after watching the dog show in the arena and
enjoying everything that was going on, the
sheep shearing, feeding the Llamas, looking
at the chickens and watching the games for
the numerous children.

We, as a society, are often very removed from

what the farmers are up to and I guess this has

It is a show that I would recommend to any

and everyone, to at least get an idea of what
smallholders are up to.
This year the show was again a very successful
event held in the grounds of Sheringham Park.
Like the vast majority of visitors we took our
dog, Bubbles, along with us, she seemed to
enjoy herself as much as we did.

The planning application is being prepared for

new residential development and public open
space on land between High Street and Water
Lane, Mundesley.
These are some of the comments on facebook:
Spent an interesting time this afternoon visiting
the public exhibition in relation to proposals
for new residential development and public
open space on land between High Street
and Water Lane in the village.
A group of 7 people were discussing the plans,
obviously not at all happy with it, especially
the social housing part - one said he wasnt a
snob but he wouldnt want to live next to those
particular houses - all of the group are people
who have moved into the village from away!
I have to say there were lots of people there
crowded around the tables looking at what
seemed to me to be rather nice plans, there
were about 6 display boards all very clearly
illustrating the layout with several people
around each display - it was just the word
snob which put my hackles up.
One of Bidwells men said hed had a difficult
time with one visitor - from Trunch!!
I forgot all about this, I had every intention
of taking a look at the proposed plans.
My concern is the size of it all and can the
services etc. cope with the influx of residents it
would bring, also coming out on to the High
Street at that particular point seems very
dangerous to me. Yes I am anti it but for
those reasons, nothing to do with social
housing I can assure you.
Of course the plans arent in yet - then
everyone can have their say. I asked about
schools & the surgery - it seems there is no
problem as far as the school is concerned
- there is room for more, and as far as the
surgery goes its up to the doctors and to date
they have had nothing to say. For those who
arent happy its up to them to lobby their
parish and district councillors

The Care Act

Part 2
Written by Miranda Marshall
Director at Hayes + Storr

Previously I wrote about the changes under

The Care Act that came in this April.
This month I am covering the other
changes due for next April 2016.
The biggest change in the whole of The Care
Act 2014 is the cap on the amount that people
pay for care in their lifetime. This is, of course,
more complicated than it might first appear.
When a persons care needs reach a level where
they are eligible for support, the local authority
sets the person up with a care account to keep
track of what is spent on eligible care-needs and
to determine when the cap has been reached.
The cap amount is 72,000. Only costs incurred
after April 2016 will count. It will only apply
to residents in care homes, and not for those
receiving care at home.
Once the cap is reached the local authority should
take over paying all the care costs. Only eligible
care costs that meet the new national eligibility
criteria count towards the cap. Eligible care costs
do not include the cost of daily living needs such
as food, energy bills or accommodation (which
are already colloquially known as hotel charges).
The cost of the daily living costs will be set at
a blanket figure of 12,000 per annum.
In addition, the local authority decides how much
the care should cost; this is based on the local
rate it pays when purchasing care. Regional
county-by-county cost-differences are certain.
If someone chooses to spend more than the local
authority approved cost, any extra amounts spent
will not count towards the cap on care costs.
What also needs to be borne in mind is the
greater purchasing-power of local authorities
which mean that they can achieve lower rates
from care homes, and it is this lower price
that is applied.
The rate that a local authority calculates care
costs to be is therefore often likely to be lower
than in practice and the person may need to
pay top-up costs.
Care homes will be expected to break down how
they charge into the various constituent parts.
Ignoring inflation, it looks as though it will take
5 to 6 years for a person paying even 25,000p.a.
in care costs to reach the cap & thereby benefit
from the new rules; and by then they will have
spent over 135,000 on care.
Asking the local authority to arrange care for
the person may be a way of overcoming this.

Be aware, however, that local authorities are

now able to charge for arranging services for
someone who is a self-funder, in the same way
that any independent care agency might do.
The new laws are clearly well-intentioned but
it will be interesting to see how they work in

information, but it is not intended to constitute

Married At Last

On Tuesday August 4th, Lis and I took the train

down to London, where we stayed one night at
a B & B, after enjoying a small family supper
and meeting, for the first time, the bridegroom
at the ripe young age of 88.
The following day 15 family members arrived
at Chelsea Registry office to witness Lis sister
Margaret Feast, aged 84, getting married to
Ronald Carpenter.
When I asked everyone how they felt about the
couple getting married at this age, they were in
total support and very happy to drink their toast
over a wonderful lunch at Benitos Restuarant in
Earls Court Rd and enjoy the delicious cake,
baked by Margaret and beautifully decorated
by her neice Belinda.
When Margaret told us that she was engaged,
just a few months ago, we were completely
taken aback as it was very unexpected.

To give some idea about

Margaret, this message
was sent by her nephew
Alastair Campbell, the
youngest son of her
sister Barbara.
Consistently through my
life the kindest person
that I can think of is my
lovely Aunt Margaret.
What a privilege to be
invited to her (one &
only) wedding at the
age of 84.
So nice that for once it could be her day rather
than her making everyone elses day.
A wonderful family occasion and very good
to meet Ron and his family.

On behalf of all our

readers may I wish
this happy couple
all the very best
as man and wife.



Church Picnic

The Shantymen are celebrating their 25th

anniversary this year and to celebrate they
planned to do three special gigs.
The first gig at The Lighthouse Community
Church on 30th May proved to be very popular.
The second gig will be at St Peters Church in
Sheringham at 7.30pm on Sat. 22nd August.
Entry will be free with a retiring collection.
Chairman Bob Hawkins said:We wanted to make
these gigs a bit special so weve designed a slide
show to run in parallel with the gig which shows
some photographic details of people and places
in our 25 year history.
The third gig will be at Cromer Pier Theatre on
6th November and will feature a well known
local celebrity, more of which later.
They also plan to make another CD late this year
or early next which will feature their favourite
& most popular songs. Booking Secretary Chris
Dolby said: The Shantymen are going to make
a list of their 24 favourite songs and choose the
most popular for the CD. We thought the public
might wish to have an input into whats on the
new CD so are inviting them to let us know
their favourite songs we have recorded.
For a list of all of songs theyve recorded visit
the discography section of their web site:
www.shantymen.com. If you have any there
is something you would like to hear again
they invite you to let them know.

On Sunday August 9th we spent the

afternoon at the Church Picnic in
Trimingham along with at least
60 others, enjoying the music of
a clarinet quintet Wind in the
Willows from Norwich, a Barber
Shop Quartet (eight of them!)
The Sam Smiths Singers and
John Cowell of Nth Walsham
playing his guitar.
All were excellent and made
the afternoon most enjoyable.
The food was great, delicious quiche, plates
of sandwiches, indulgent cake & jelly, my
favourite, all prepared and served by Dot,
Margaret, Kay, Elaine & Liz.

With Myra on the gate selling raffle tickets and

her husband Howard directing the traffic
it was a wonderful time.
The event raised 400 for church funds, well
done all, looking forward to next year.

Acting Can Be Murder

On Friday 31st July along with Lis daughter
Belinda,we attended the latest production by
the Mundesley Players in the Coronation Hall.
This was the last night of their 4 shows and
the production was enjoyed by all.
Dolores Gordon (played by Lesley Dillon)
loves the stage and has always dreamt of
stardom, but the only role she ever seems
to land is that of the lowly understudy.
She decides that her only option is to murder
the lead actress, Guinevere Black (Lyndsey
King) and that is what she does. But how
long can she keep this a secret from the
cast without going mad?
And who is that peering through the doors
when no one but Dolores is looking?
With a cast of 14, I take my hat off to all of the
cast, particularly Gerry Robins who played

Officer Biddle and Paul Reynolds who not only

played Albert Fisk but also was the Director of
this great show.
Lis & I are looking forward to the Mundesley
Players next show is Annie The Musical
which will be in December.
