Lights for Linda

Hospice to benefit from Stanhoe Christmas lights display.

Derek Scales has put up an even finer than usual display of Christmas lights and is collecting money on behalf of the Norfolk Hospice in memory of Linda, who died last November. There is a collection box for those able to visit the display behind the pond at Stanhoe. If you can’t make it in person, the hospice welcomes donations on its website.

Remembrance

Stanhoe residents gathered on Remembrance Sunday.

On 8 November Stanhoe residents met in a socially distanced manner at the War Memorial to remember all those who served their country in times of war. Photographer Pamela Austin counted 24 people, and said she had rarely seen so many out in public in Stanhoe.

Bill Husselby read the names of the fallen, followed by the exhortation. Rev. Peter Cook then conducted a short service.

WI update

Stanhoe & Barwick WI remains active despite coronavirus restrictions.

“Stanhoe & Barwick WI is alive and kicking even though obviously we don’t have any recent events to report,” says secretary Valerie Robson. Despite the coronavirus restrictions, Institute members have been doing all they can to support one another.

The 2020 Annual Report records how the WI began the year in fine style, with 29 members, only to have to cancel all meetings from April onwards. Following a spring and summer of mostly remote contact, at the start of September members held their first full face-to-face meeting – socially distanced on the playing field. Soon afterwards they were limited to groups of six, and now of course there will be no meetings at all until at least December.

“After our successful centenary year in 2019, this year has been all the more disappointing,” says the report. “However, we end 2020 with plans to meet whenever we can and keeping in touch with one another when we can’t. We even have one new member and more in the wings, awaiting better days, as do we all.”

Nightingales

A former Stanhoe resident is looking for a missing painting.

1950s painting of a new brick-and-tile house next door to single-story agricultural building

Have you seen the original of this fine painting? Roger Horn, who used to live in Stanhoe, would like to know what’s become of it.

The house named Nightingales, which still stands in Docking Road, was built in 1953 for Roger’s parents George and Ruby Horn. Next door, on a site now occupied by the Parson’s Lane development, stands The Granary, from where Mr Horn ran his agricultural feedstuffs business.

Roger says the painting was commissioned by his father and used to hang in the office. In later years his mother must have disposed of it. Someone clearly took a photo, because it’s in the Stanhoe Archive collection, but the painting itself is off our radar. If anyone has seen it, please contact or .

Dykeses and Chestneys

More memories of old Stanhoe families.

We recently received some fond memories of the Dykes, Chestney and Tuck families from Bea Lloyd, who lives in North Walsham and has been reading the All Saints’ churchyard survey compiled by Gillian Beckett and her mother in 1980.

You can read Bea’s notes on a new page in our families section.

“I found many interesting memories among the gravestones that someone had wonderfully recorded. What an amazing thing to do for people,” Bea says.

“My Dad used to visit the graves regularly, bringing me with him, but since his death nearly 40 years ago I haven’t got back through as often as I would like. We are a distance away in North Walsham and for many years I didn’t drive. My Dad wanted to be buried there with his family too but he died relatively young, very unexpectedly, and it wasn’t possible.”

“However, I do drive now and I am a grandmother myself. In the next few weeks I will be bringing my three young granddaughters to visit your lovely village and show them where their ancestors came from (COVID-19 safely of course!)”

We look forward to seeing Bea and her family in Stanhoe soon.
