Hoste history

Local historian’s daughter reveals the inside story of a naval biography.

Laura Pocock

You’ll probably have heard of the Hoste family of Burnham Market, not least from their monuments in All Saints’ church, Stanhoe. You might remember their connection to Horatio Nelson through his friend Captain Sir William Hoste. But do you know the link between modern Stanhoe and a local biographer of both Nelson and William Hoste?

Laura Pocock Faulks, chairman of the MEHM Trust, is the daughter of Tom Pocock, who lived at Burnham Overy Staithe and wrote many books about the life and times of Nelson. In a fascinating new article in our local history section, Laura explains how her father decided to write a biography of Captain Hoste, and how the project nearly came to grief. Thanks to an unexpected postcard and the generosity of a stamp dealer, however, Tom was able to write “Remember Nelson: The Life of Captain Sir William Hoste”.

Although Laura claims to be no expert on Nelson, the story had a powerful influence on her decision to move to Stanhoe. Read the full article here.

“Not cowed by Corona” is how Stanhoe’s MEHM Trust chairman Laura Pocock describes her approach to an exhibition planned to take place this month at her gallery Pocock’s the artmonger in Burnham Market.

With the shop closed to visitors, Laura has launched a virtual event instead. The exhibition, entitled Animalia, features dozens of sculptures, paintings, drawings and prints – all of creatures great and small.

There’s nothing virtual about the exhibits, however. Everything is for sale, and buyers can collect their purchases from the gallery once restrictions are lifted. For smaller items, Laura is also offering a postal delivery service.

“Artists are really suffering financially right now, so if you would like to buy something to help me support them, that would be great,” Laura says. “If not, I hope you enjoy the exhibition and I look forward to seeing you in person soon.”

Revised bin collections

Information on revised Stanhoe bin collections.

6 April 2020 – Update to the previous release (sent 3 April 2020):

Garden waste collections (brown bin) have been reinstated today (week commencing 6 April 2020). Renewals on the brown bin service will be extended to ensure every subscriber still gets their 25 collections. If this week is your usual collection week then it will be collected. If your usual brown bin collection week is next week it will be collected then. You can check your collection dates by visiting www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/yourbins.

Waste and refuse teams in west Norfolk are working to new advice on social distancing.

Due to smaller waste teams, food waste collection will be stopped. Food caddies will not be emptied until social distancing is relaxed.  Please help the crews by putting food waste directly into your general waste (black bin or waste bags).

It will not be possible to collect side waste or garden waste that has been bagged.

Please feed any excess garden waste in to your brown bin over the next couple of collections.

Should your waste or recycling bin not be emptied on the usual day, please leave it out as we will try to collect it within the following few days.

The bin crews really appreciate your support during these challenging and unprecedented times.

Message from the Borough Council of Kings Lynn & West Norfolk
(3 April 2020)

Waste and refuse teams in West Norfolk are working to new advice on social distancing. This will affect collections from week commencing 6 April 2020. Garden waste collections (brown bins) will be reinstated  but food waste will only be collected with black bin collections and not green bins.

Also, due to smaller waste teams, in some areas the collection team will need to combine the food caddy waste with the black bin waste and it will not be processed separately in the normal way. It will not be possible to collect side waste or garden waste that has been bagged. Please feed any excess garden waste into your brown bin over the next couple of collections.

We would ask if people could assist this situation by being very careful about not overbuying their perishable foods to avoid waste, and by getting creative with leftovers to reduce waste and their need to go the shops. For more tips visit www.lovefoodhatewaste.com.

Residents are reminded to practice safe hygiene and to wash their hands thoroughly after they take the bin out and when they return it to their property.

Bin service changes can be found here: www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/yourbins or by following your social media channels.

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.

Work in progress:
