Ten percent of the proceeds will be donated to the MEHM trust.

Stanhoe Village Screen:–

We begin our spring with:–

Victoria and Abdul (PG) biography/drama/history on Monday, January 29th at 7:30pm.

This is the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Judy Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim, a young clerk travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he finds favour with the Queen. The two forge a devoted alliance that her inner circle attempts to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.

Tickets cost £5 on the door to include a complimentary drink. Doors open 7:00pm

Burnham Market Community Car Scheme:–

In the October Draw at the meeting of The Burnham Market Community Car Scheme committee the winners came from Cromer, Titchwell and Burnham Market. This is a well supported fund raiser for the scheme with a quarterly Draw and hopefully there will be Stanhoe winner again before too long.

And finally:–

A possible New Year’s resolution:

“I am only one;
but still
I am one.

I cannot do everything,
but still
I can do something.

I will not refuse
to do something
I can do.”

Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous New Year
