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

Keep 10 August free for an evening of music and fun.

Saturday 10 August will see an evening of friendship, music and games in the Village Hall & Reading Room. The first “Stanhoe Social” will begin at 6.30 pm.

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.

Thank you, Mark

Stanhoe’s village hall trustees praise outgoing chairman.

On 22 June the MEHM Trustees and guests gathered in the Reading Room to thank retiring chairman Mark Roche for more than ten years’ service to the Trust.

Mark will remain a Trustee but is handing over the role of chairperson to Laura Pocock, who praised Mark for his dedicated service. The Trustees presented Mark and Pen with a selection of plants for the garden at Isabel Lodge, their new home.

The MEHM Trust looks after the Reading Room – Stanhoe’s village hall – which was founded in 1886. Notable events during Mark’s term of office have been the purchase of the freehold of the playing field in 2015 and the transformation of the inside of the hall, with new flooring, heating, blinds and furnishings. At the celebration Jane and Peter Coates, who run Stanhoe Village Screen, confirmed that they are applying for grants with a plan to install new audiovisual equipment including a hearing loop.

Birthday tea

Stanhoe & Barwick WI members visit Morston Hall.

22 members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI celebrated 100 years since our formation in 1919 in great style this June.

We met for afternoon tea at Morston Hall, and from the animated chatter it was a much enjoyed celebration.

The selection of sandwiches and sweet things were delicious and the cake stands were cleared quite happily.

Some members bravely wore hats in reference to the formality of meetings gone by but we were all in celebratory mode for the afternoon out in a delightful setting.

Cartoon fun

WI members learn drawing secrets from a professional.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members and a large number of guests were entertained by a very clever cartoonist called Marko at their June meeting.

Marko shows how to draw cartoon animals

Over the years he has developed a series of cartoon characters: the elf with the red nose, the teddy bear, a range of Christmas characters, and a cat, which he cleverly drew for us with witty stories to aid the development of his drawing.

As well as being a cartoonist Marko is a well practised mimic, and his stories were interspersed with impressions of great comic characters from past eras.

To finish, everyone was turned into a cartoonist. We were each given a template of a circle drawn on paper, and a pencil, and were invited to follow step by step instructions to create a cartoon dog. To our amazement we achieved this, and the results were impressively varied.

The following business meeting was a more sombre affair as Fran Ulyatt was presented with a certificate in recognition of 25 years of membership of our WI; we were able to look at and marvel at the displays set up for the recent WI exhibition in the church; and we firmed up details for several outings including our upcoming birthday tea which we are looking forward to greatly.
