Palisade fencing

Stanhoe’s pond palisade fencing is replaced.

You may have noticed that the palisade fencing at the junction of Bircham Road/Docking Road/Burnham Road has recently been replaced.

We hope you will agree that it is a huge improvement and should ensure that the adjacent footpath remains accessible.

The Parish Council are extremely grateful to the Highways Department of Norfolk County Council for undertaking and funding the new fence, and for replacing the palisade fencing with wooden sleepers and not concrete slabs.

Tree down

A fallen tree blocked Stanhoe’s Station Road on Sunday.

Sunday 29 March has been a windy day, and this morning Terry and Pamela Austin photographed a fallen tree blocking Station Road. It’s past the last bungalow, just before the onion store. Another gold star for Highways - Your Parish Council called the emergency number regarding the  tree late in the morning and by 2.30 it had been fully cleared by Highways. Not a bad effort for a Sunday on short staff!

Back to Bangladesh

Stanhoe WI members are transported by memories of a childhood spent in Asia.

The speaker at the March meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI was Junya Lewis who spoke about her Bangladeshi childhood.

Junya stared by welcoming everyone in her native language and getting a Bangladeshi response, which really alerted the attention of members and guests. This was followed by reminiscences of the colours of clothes and spices and food, and the environment, as well as for the smells of the early mornings.

Junya Lewis and a friend demonstrate how to put on a sari

Her family lived in a hamlet of four or five houses, wooden structures with a mud infill and a corrugated iron roof if you were wealthy. It was a settlement exclusively for Moslems, with a Hindu village nearby which was banned to Junya and her brothers. But everyone helped each other, and her mother worked as the midwife and received payment in rice, or spices, or foodstuffs to nurture them. Junya did jobs within the community such as looking after the goats, and catching fish in the monsoon season.

Her father left the family to work abroad, which was a local tradition, when she was a baby and did not send for the family until Junya was eight years old. So she arrived in Britain speaking no English but with a firm grasp of the Koran, and managed to sail through school maintaining her Moslem roots, and became a teacher, and married an Englishman.

Junya Lewis shows off colourful sari fabrics

We were delighted to be shown garments similar to those worn in her childhood, to see Saris, and see a member elegantly dressed in one in front of our eyes, and to see a man’s Sarong, and traditional jewellery.

It was an entertaining and enlightening talk and made for an enjoyable afternoon for a room full of people.
