Dogs welcome

Stanhoe reverses its dog ban on the playing field.

The new 'dogs welcome' notice

A new sign reminds dog owners
to do the right thing

Dogs are now welcome on Stanhoe playing field, as long as their owners keep them under control and clean up after them.

The announcement from the MEHM Trust comes with the arrival of a new dog waste bin near the Village Hall & Reading Room, on the boundary of the rough field and the playing field.

“We are delighted to say that dogs are now officially allowed to be exercised on the playing field,” said Trust chairman Laura Pocock.

“The playing field was purchased for the village by the MEHM Trust so please be responsible and pick up after your four-legged friends. You can dispose of dog waste in the new bin provided by the Parish Council near the Village Hall & Reading Room on your field.”

“We would also ask you to keep dogs on leads around the play equipment. We hope you enjoy using this valuable village amenity.”

State visit

WI centenary attracts officials from Norwich.

As it is our centenary year Stanhoe and Barwick WI members were honoured at their August meeting to be visited by the Federation Chairman Margaret Collingwood, the Federation Secretary Louise Casson, the editor of WI News Sue Ovenden, and the local WI Adviser Coral Batchelor, as well as visiting members of Wells WI.

Chris Armstrong kept us entertained for almost an hour with his talk “Anything from a pin to an elephant”, based on his book of the same name, giving background stories to the founding and running of three Norfolk department stores: Bakers and Larners of Holt, Roys of Wroxham and Palmers of Yarmouth. He also mentioned Break charity shops whose good works are dear to his heart.

The talk was followed by tea and cake made by members, before the business of the day was discussed. A collection of decorated wooden spoons created by members were presented to the Federation Secretary for use in Evelyn Suffield House, the Norfolk WI Federation Office in Norwich.

It was a very busy and interactive afternoon.

Garden meeting

WI members enjoy the fine weather.

It was a beautiful sunny July afternoon when 15 members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI were welcomed into the garden of their treasurer Julia Walton.

Enjoying the sunshine

Business was very brief, with reminders about signing in and out at future meetings, and signing up to upcoming meals and visits. Volunteers were sought for various things and then we all relaxed and chatted over tea and delicious cakes made by members.

Later we explored Julia’s delightful garden which is built on several levels, has a large collection of pots containing vegetables and an interesting variety of flowers, and all sorts of quirky decorative items abounded.

It was a very relaxed afternoon.

Sitting pretty

Stanhoe village hall gets smart new chairs.

Mark Roche takes a well-earned break next to the new chairs and piles of wrapping material

Former “chair man” Mark Roche takes a well-earned break. Unwrapping the new chairs took Mark and current MEHM chairman Laura Pocock two hours yesterday.

Thanks to the Norfolk Community Foundation the Village Hall & Reading Room is now the proud owner of 40 new chairs. They add to the existing 47 padded chairs and can also be used outside. “There is a plan afoot to create an outside seating area, so they can be used for that but also for any outdoor functions that we get bookings for,” says Laura Pocock.

Stanhoe Social poster

Nelson’s Shantymen of Burnham Thorpe will provide rousing musical entertainment from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. If you haven’t heard them before you are in for a treat:

There’s no need to book – just turn up with your own drinks and snacks. There will be boules, pool and ping-pong to play, or simply come for a chat, catch up with old friends and get to know new ones.

Laura Pocock, chairman of the MEHM Trust, said: “The Village Hall & Reading Room is truly the heart of Stanhoe: a hub, a place to meet, exchange news, views and laughs. I hope this will the first of many informal get-togethers that will unite our village.”

Gardens success

Stanhoe Open Gardens raises a record sum for church funds.

This year’s Stanhoe Open Gardens Day, held on Saturday 1 June, was a great success all round, with lots of visitors commenting on the lovely atmosphere in the village.

Plant stall

A record amount was raised for church funds, thanks to all the hard work put in by those hosting our stalls and the generous contributions to the stalls from friends and neighbours.

It was a particularly bumper year for the plants, thanks to Laura Pocock (and her extended family!) and Pauline Campion, who put on a great show in Parsons Lane.

Cake stall

The attraction of the WI centenary exhibition in the Church was a very welcome addition to enjoyment of the day.
