WI good cheer

Stanhoe WI members get into the festive spirit.

Members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI had a very festive afternoon in December when Three’s Company entertained us with a selection of readings and poems on the theme of “Happy Christmas”.

Using the initial letters of each of those two words we were treated to snatches of carols, irreverent verses by UA Fanthorpe, and very funny nativity stories by Gervase Phinn.

It reminded us all of many Christmas-tides past, and introduced us to an amazing array of words connected with Christmas.

As this took place in a decorated room and was accompanied by mulled wine and mince pies it was a lovely start to the festive season enjoyed by everyone present.

A good WI year

Stanhoe WI members look back on recent successes.

On a very wet afternoon in November a small group of members, including two new members, met together for the AGM of Stanhoe and Barwick WI.

Excellent reports of our activities were given by the secretary, treasurer, and president. Members had recently participated in an exhibition of craft items at the North Creake Community Action Day, had attended the area Federation Meeting at Rudham, had collected monies in support of the Baby Basics charity and ACWW, and had supplied and run a very successful cake stall in support of WI funds.

Plans were outlined for our upcoming centenary year, with a centenary activity in most months.

And we also re-elected Pamela Austin as our president, Valerie Robson as secretary and Julia Walton as treasurer, and welcomed Sandra Carr and Pam Protheroe onto the committee for the coming year. Thanks were given to retiring committee members.

In order to get to know each other more fully everyone had brought along an item which was special to them, to talk about. These ranged from a much loved Mrs Teddy, through a selection of rings – one of which was in memory of a Wesleyan preacher – to an apron and a Scottish dancing sash, a selection of books, a piece of music, photos, and a dangling wooden figure which had been brought back from the battlefield and was an example of “trench art”.

It was a remarkable afternoon.

Wise women

Stanhoe WI members learn about witchcraft.

At their October meeting Stanhoe and Barwick WI were treated to Dr Maureen James speaking on “Witch, Wicca and Women”, a history of English witchcraft.

Going back beyond medieval times Dr James showed us how strong women were portrayed form Greek myths through to well-known mystics such as Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe.

She explained how women had always been herbalists and treated illnesses, and how women had always talked together about the mysteries of birth and death, and this led to them often being labelled as a witch.

The Witchcraft Acts of 1542 and 1745 banned all forms of witchcraft, and resulted in public hangings for perpetrators.

BY Victorian times there were lots of fortune tellers, soothsayers, and local superstitions which lasted right up to recent years, such as “reading the fortune in the tea leaves” and “the charming of warts.”

There is a museum of witchcraft and magic in Boscastle which features much of the history, and of Wicca, the twentieth-century development founded by Gerald Gardner.

It was a real romp through witchcraft history.

Overnight Road Closure

Overnight Road Closure - Stanhoe Crossroads

Overnight road closure on B1454 / B1155 Stanhoe crossroads for carriageway resurfacing

Work will begin on Friday 19 October to carry out major carriageway resurfacing works on B1454 / B1155 junction at Stanhoe. To minimise disruption on this busy road the work is being carried out overnight and will take one night to complete subject to suitable weather conditions.

The site will include each 30 metre approach to the crossroads.

During the resurfacing works it will be necessary to close the road to all through traffic at this location. Fully signed official diversion routes along roads of the same or higher classification will be in operation between 7.00pm and 6.00am on the night.

Vehicle access to businesses and properties within the limits of the closure will be maintained from one end at all times. Pedestrian access will be maintained while work is underway.

The County Council would like to thank people for their patience while these works to replace the existing worn out road surface are carried out.

The work which will cost £51,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community & Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
