Quack plaque

The Duck Inn is recognised for its community contribution during the pandemic.

Team members at Stanhoe’s Duck Inn have received a well-deserved blue plaque from the Norfolk Lieutenancy in recognition of their wonderful contribution to the community during the pandemic.

Pictured here is Ben Handley from the Duck receiving the plaque from David Lord, chair of Stanhoe Parish Council, at the PC’s AGM on Wednesday 11 May.

Racy raconteuse

Stanhoe WI members enjoy tales of Hollywood.

It is always a nice surprise to find a room full of ladies at Stanhoe and Barwick WI meetings. Today we were told that we have 35 members this year, which is a wonderful expansion of numbers.

Hollywood expert Susan Barnet

For our May meeting we once again welcomed Susan Barnet with a very relaxed talk entitled ”Hollywood Royalty”. With speed she regaled us with often racy tales of the lives of Hollywood screen figures such as Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Clark Gable, Vivienne Leigh, Cary Grant, Mae West, Robert Mitchum, Olivia de Havilland, David Niven, and Errol Flynn. The film lovers amongst us hearing these tales of nostalgia were royally treated throughout the talk.

Afterwards we were invited to sign up for more sedate events; a “Women Walk The World” walk on the coast, a garden visit, a meal at a local vineyard with local wine, a tour of a flower bouquet growers premises, and of course for our Jubilee Tea in June. It will be a busy summer for members.

Lighting the way

Stanhoe WI members learn about the history and charitable work of Trinity House.

A large group of members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI met in April to hear Karl Lumbers of Trinity House speak about the organisation, and 500 years of its history, as well as its present day activities. Having been invited, as a past ship’s captain, to be one of the 400 “Younger Brethren” of Trinity House, made up of previous members of the Merchant Navy and the Royal Navy, his presentation was full of interest.

“Younger Brother”: Karl Lumbers of Trinity House

We learnt about the first wooden lighthouses, built in 1698. and 1708, and the first stone built striped one built in 1759, all individually lit by coal fires, and overseen by a lighthouse keeper. Originally Trinity House supplied pilots to take ships up The Thames, and other large rivers. Nowadays the pilots are more likely to work on “superyachts”, and the lighthouses and buoys marking dangerous places in the sea are powered automatically by solar panels and LED lights, and lighthouse keeping is a job of the past.

The modern Trinity House organisation has many charitable functions, and supports a range of seafaring charities, funded by levies on ships going into port, and by rents collected from farms which they own. One of their aims is to encourage young people to go to sea as a career. And Princess Anne is the hard working, supportive “Master of Trinity House”.

After this very interesting, professional, talk the meeting became very sociable, and notice was given of several outings for members to enjoy, and of future meetings, before members departed in a happy mood.

Spot the surgery

Burnham Market surgery moved on 14 March, but they may not have told you…

The Burnhams Surgery has moved from Church Walk to 1 Creake Road, opposite the petrol station on the other side of Burnham Market.

The new surgery in Creake Road

The fine new building opened a couple of weeks ago, but our correspondent Pamela Austin believes that Stanhoe patients may not have been officially told of the move, and the new surgery is apparently not signposted.

The surgery’s Facebook page is a good source of news on “teething problems with the IT and telephone infrastructure” (now said to be solved) and changes in the lineup of doctors at the practice.

RAF museum open days

RAF Bircham Newton Heritage Centre announces its 2022 open days, starting at Easter.

RAF Bircham Newton Heritage Centre volunteers say they will re-open on Easter Sunday and have published dates for a further 12 more open days this year (see below).

The Heritage Centre has a unique collection of memorabilia from the former Royal Air Force station’s past service, which spanned more than 44 years, including two world wars and the Cold War. On display are photographs and personal memories of service personnel who served there and other related items from its fascinating history. The Centre is staffed and run entirely by volunteers, many of whom are ex-service or children of service personnel. Close by are two stone memorials to remember those who served at Bircham Newton and its main satellite airfield near Docking.

Opening times are 10am to 4pm. Entrance and car parking are free. Disabled access and toilet facilities are available.

Location is the National Construction College, Bircham Newton, Norfolk PE31 6RH. The College is signposted off the A148 and the B1454.
