Hello All
Even though the evenings are drawing in and the clocks are about to go back, its
hard to believe that the next issue will be the Christmas\New Year one.
I hope you enjoy this months cover picture kindly sent in by Alan Gray. Its of Ruby
the horse waiting for her weekly treat of mints at the local store. Ruby (and her
owner Sarah) are well known, and I'm sure that this is what makes Village Life so
special.
If anyone has seasonal pictures for the next issue please submit them for
consideration.
The Deadline for submissions for the Dec/Jan issue is 17th November

Advent, the start of the new Church Year, when we begin to look forward to
the birth of Jesus at Christmas (ten weeks away as I write) falls in November,
towards the end of the calendar year. Endings and new beginnings: our life
consists of these, rolling out across the years. We like to mark such landmark
occasions, pivots on which we hang our lives. We aspire to look forward in
hope, although this can sometimes be quite a challenge - when life surprises
or overwhelms us; and politically, due to Brexit, we could not live in more
uncertain, uncharted times.
However, the time around Remembrance Sunday (13th November) is familiar
territory, when we look back at our nation's history in respect and gratitude,
remembering the courage of the past and the heroes who have given us the
freedoms we continue to be thankful for to this day. We live in a world of
tremendous upheaval and darkness; never has the inextinguishable light of
the Christ-child - and the hope He brings us - been more needed in our world.
We continue to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. The Bible
Society, in conjunction with the Royal British Legion, has produced a small
collection of psalms, poetry, prayers and hymns: Hear My Cry, subtitled 'words
for when there are no words.' I quote from the books foreword, words written
not by a priest but by a decorated soldier, General the Lord Dannatt: God
does not take sides between countries. However, he is passionately
concerned for the people who live in those countries and get caught up in war.
He made us. He loves us and wants us to love him in return. In peace or war
God is interested in us as individuals. I echo these words.
This Remembrance-tide let us offer our prayers for our serving military
personnel and their families, for those challenged by life-changing injuries and
for those who have lost their lives in war (including civilians) during the past
year: at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
We also pray that peace and justice will prevail in Syria especially in the city of
Aleppo - and all the countries of the Middle East.
Wishing you all a blessed and peaceful Advent,
Reverend Judith

Grimston and District Good Companions


We continue to meet on the third Saturday of the month (except in June when we join
the Methodist Church for their annual Strawberry Tea) and provide as varied a
programme as possible each year. In August we have an outing - this year we visited
the beautiful gardens at Elgood's Brewery in Wisbech. In January we have a social
afternoon, and February is the month for our annual lunch. The September meeting
is when the Fourville Players usually treat us to a harvest tea and an entertaining
bingo session. Last month we were invited to the Chapel for lunch very kindly
provided by Stephen and Beryl Watts, and together we enjoyed good food and
companionship. For our November meeting Mrs Helen Lilley is coming to talk about
a local charity called 'Little Discoverers' which supports parents who have disabled
pre-school children.
The Good Companions welcome anyone over sixty - and our meetings always finish
with a delicious tea! You are also welcome to come for a 'taster' session. For further
details just ring 600750 or 600769.

Greenfingers October

We wish to thank all the Villagers and Members who helped to raise 1000 for
West Norfolk Blood Bikes. Sean Moore and David Parrish, representing the
charity, attended the meeting and were delighted to accept the cheque. Over
950 was raised at the Show. Mary Roper sold her wonderful Noah's Ark and
generously donated 25 and club funds provided the remainder.
Two visitors were welcomed. A reminder was given that the annual subscription
of 10 was due at the November meeting. The 2017 programme is complete and
includes speakers on the National Gardens Scheme, Food from your Garden,
Walled Gardens, Rare Plants, A to Z of Bulbs and Clematis. A coach trip and an
evening visit in July are also planned.
Our speaker Neil Callan, aided by his wife Claire, spoke on their retirement
project at Horseshoe Farm, near St Ives, Cambs. In six years they transformed a
acre wilderness of fenland soil, windswept and containing concrete foundations
of a bullock shed, into a verdant garden which they now open for the NGS. It was
a wonderful talk, extensively and explicitly illustrated with slides, relating their
trials and tribulations.
Plant of the Month winners were:
1st Neville Jackson
2nd Margaret Gladman
3rd Judy Woollatt
Next month's meeting on November 8th is the AGM, after which Dr Ian Bedford
from the John Innes Institute in Norwich will speak on Creating a Butterfly Haven.
Visitors are warmly invited to join us.

Piscinas, Porches and Stoups.


Churches are commonplace buildings in our communities and Norfolk certainly
has its fair share. But it's not readily appreciated that no two are identical. Every
one is unique.They may contain common features like those above as well as a
Chancel, a Nave and often a tower. But why does Norfolk have far more churches
with a round tower, rather than the usual square one, than any other county in the
United Kingdom? Why is the main body of a church called the Nave which is from
the Latin 'navis' meaning 'ship'? And what might be the connection between the
building of a porch and King John and Pope Innocent III?
These and other fascinating facts about the features of buildings we tend to take
for granted will be revealed in an illustrated talk by Alan Gray entitled 'Church
Architecture Explained' at St. Botolph's Church, Grimston on Thursday, November
10th, starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets on the door are 6, members 5 and include refreshments. Proceeds are
in aid of Friends of St. Botolph's. All are welcome.

The car boots have finished for this year now and a BIG thank you to all who have
had a car boot or attended and made a donation. This is currently our only form of
fund raising and the only way we can maintain and add to the equipment on the
field.

Mole Control and


Pest Services Ltd

As some of you may have seen we now have another Porta cabin on the site
thanks to our former secretary, Claire and R G Carter who donated the cabin
along with Martyn Kay and the late Shaun Dewing who applied for the planning
permission for us. Claire then went above and beyond the call of duty and
managed to enrol the assistance of S C Fabrications (Norwich) Ltd who
generously donated their time and expertise in siting the cabin for us. We are
currently waterproofing and painting this new addition to the field and deciding
how to best use this valuable asset. If anybody who uses the play area would like
to come on the committee and have a say on what we do with the area please
contact us (phone number in back of book) we would be please to hear from you.

Holly Meadows School

I am delighted to be the new Headteacher at Holly Meadows School and have


plenty of things to share already after almost half a term in post.
This year our school structure has changed, so that our youngest pupils are
taught in separate Early Years, Year 1 and 2 classes for the first time since Holly
Meadows opened in 2011. This change allows the school to grow further and this
September, we have welcomed a new teacher, Dawn Fairbrother to our team.
The new intake of reception children, known to us as 'Explorers', have settled in
brilliantly, we are so proud of them all!
There was a great deal of activity on site over the summer to prepare our new,
stimulating learning environments. We are extremely grateful to our hardworking
PTA for providing us with extra funds for a fantastic new creative station, water
table and this week, two new interactive whiteboards and a projector.
You may have already seen pictures of our children and staff dressed as famous
book characters in the local newspapers, celebrating 100 Years of the work of
Roald Dahl. This was certainly a day to remember! One of our key development
priorities for this year is to explore creative ways to enhance our curriculum to
broaden interests and experiences. We have a wonderful school site and plan to
take the learning outdoors and into the community where possible. Children in
Year 3, 4 and 5 thoroughly enjoyed their day at Gressenhall Rural Life Museum
where they experienced life in the Stone Age and pupils in Early Years and Key
Stage 1 have taken a trip to Tesco to learn about the journey of our food 'From
Farm to Fork.
As part of our Harvest celebrations we enjoyed a visit in assembly from Reverend
Jane. We have chosen to continue to support the very worthy King's Lynn
Foodbank; thanks again to the families of Holly Meadows for their generous
donations.
Weekends in October have certainly been busy at Holly Meadows! On Sunday
2nd October, you may have seen some of our children and their families taking
part in a sponsored cycle ride in the local area, an event supported by King's
Lynn Cycling Club, to raise further funds for school. This event raised over 200
to purchase new balance bikes; a brilliant effort from all involved! On Sunday 9th
October our school was the base for the 'Countryfile- Children in Need Ramble'.
We were pleased to see families from our Holly Meadows community taking
part. On Sunday 16th, we opened our doors again to host the annual KLCC road
race.
12 | Village Link

Cycling is certainly a sport we like to promote at Holly Meadows; we are very


lucky to have Lisa Seaton in our team who is a fully trained Balanceability coach.
We have our own balance bikes in school and Lisa teaches early cycling skills to
those learning to ride without stabilisers as part of the curriculum. She also leads
an after school off road cycling club for children in Key Stage 2 as well as
organising the very important Cycling Proficiency training later in the year.
I am very excited about the growing success of Holly Meadows and feel proud to
be the Headteacher. I would like to take this opportunity to invite families with
children due to start primary school in September 2017 to come and look around
our lovely school.
Please call our school office on 01485 600241 to book a visit.
Jennie Wildsmith-Garton

Holly Meadows PTA


We have had a lovely start to the school year at Holly Meadows and it has been
lovely to see our new students settle so well in reception and throughout the
school.
We held our first PTA meeting of the year in September and it was so nice to
welcome some new parents to our meeting.
The PTA work hard to fundraise throughout the year with different events. The
monies raised go towards enhancing the children's learning experience, in the last
year our fundraising efforts have allowed the children to access a visiting
planetarium, bought equipment for our new reception class and funded a mobile
PA system to name just a few!
Our next fundraising event will be a Prize Bingo on Wednesday 7th December at
Ffolkes Arms Hotel, Hillington. The doors will open at 6.45pm and the evening will
start at 7.30pm.
There are always lots of prizes to be won which have been so very generously
donated by both local businesses, friends and family of the school and the local
community.
If anybody would like to donate a prize for our bingo they would be very gratefully
received. You can drop any prizes off to the Holly Meadows school office or
contact Emma Whitmore on (01485)609036 to arrange collection.
We look forward to welcoming you to the bingo on 7th December.
Emma.

Anglian Water

As many of you will know, Anglian Water is the company responsible for your water
and water recycling services. We pride ourselves on delivering great service to our
customers; however we are aware that sometimes local issues can arise, especially
with surface water flooding. Pott Row has a history of localised surface water
flooding after heavy rainfall and we wanted to let you know what we've been doing to
address this. The drainage system in Pott Row is impacted by additional flows of
water coming into the network from surface and groundwater sources. Groundwater
can enter the sewer system (a process called infiltration) when the natural water
table rises. Water tables rise and fall naturally, but are impacted by events such as
rainfall. The groundwater entering the sewer can take up space that would normally
be used to accommodate the water flows that the sewers are designed for, causing
this water to spill over. High volumes of surface water also seem to be entering the
local system, possibly as a result of private drainpipes that have been connected to
the sewer or from other sources such as agricultural or road drains that have been
misconnected. In the same way infiltration reduces capacity; surface water entering
the foul network means that the system can become overwhelmed at times of very
heavy rainfall.
We have taken a series of actions to address these issues, which include:
Balancing the flows of water into and away from the pumping station in Pott
Row to reduce the risk of flooding from the system.
A replacement air valve has been installed on the Pott Row rising main,
which will ensure the system flows correctly.
The whole sewerage network in Pott Row has been surveyed to check for
infiltration.
Two manhole chambers have been sealed to stop rain water getting into the
system.
Two non-return valves have been fitted in the sewerage network, which will
stop flood water travelling back up the pipes and into people's properties.
All of this work should help to reduce the risk of localised flooding. We will be closely
monitoring the impact of these changes over the coming months and will continue to
investigate this matter.In the meantime, if you have any questions please let us know
by emailing public.affairs@anglianwater.co.uk. Alternatively, contact your Borough
Councillor, Cllr Mrs Sue Fraser (Cllr.sue.fraser@west-norfolk.gov.uk) who is
working with us to resolve these issues.

St Lukes Pott Row


It was lovely to see all those who
came to the service in celebration of
St Lukes and shared their stories
and memories. Especially thanks to
Mike Pitcher for explaining how the
bell came to be offered to the Parish
Council through a chance
conversation between a parishioner
and David George who had the bell
after his father demolished the
church and it is thanks to that
parishioner that the bell is now in its
new position in St Botolphs Church.
The display of photographs, articles
and books created a great talking
point for those who had worshipped
at St Lukes, this display will remain
for some weeks to enable people
who could not attend the service to
have a look and it is them hoped that
we will have a permanent display in
the alcove above the bell to explain
its significance and a reminder of our
mission in the community.
It has been lovely talking to people
about St Lukes and thanks to Edna
and Eric Thompson, John and Mary
Allard, Mary Spragg, Steve Collison
Julie Smart and Violet and David
Giles, for sharing their photographs,
pictures and certificates to be used
in the display

Writers Exchange

Are you a writer? Published, unpublished, work in progress or yet to be transferred


from imagination to paper. Are you perhaps, a publisher, an agent or an editor?
Would you welcome mutual support with others involved in creating literature, to
bolster confidence in abilities and aspirations?
'There are lots of on line workshops and forums, enabling writers to connect with
fellows worldwide. For some people though, there is nothing like meeting face to
face, enabling dynamic opportunities to; exchange ideas, thoughts and opinions to
encourage the newcomer to the art and to share triumphs of the practiced,'
commented Sue Vaughan-Williams, a new local writer herself.
Norfolk Creative Arts, and Sue are therefore pleased to present a platform to meet
other wordsmiths, and create the opportunity to hear thoughts on what shape future,
regular or occasional, structured or unstructured gatherings might be.
This informal free event will take place on Tuesday 8th November 6.30pm till
8.30pm
at Norfolk Creative Arts, Church Hill 71 Gayton Road Grimston, West Norfolk PE32

WE MEND ~ YOU MOW

TiddlyPotts

For all Residential Planning

A big HELLO and WELCOME to the new families joining us at TiddlyPotts over
the last few weeks. It's lovely to see some new faces and I hope we've all made
you feel welcome.
Since we opened again for the Autumn Term in September, the children (and
adults!) have enjoyed exploring the new toys we purchased over the summer, the
tiny tiddlers especially like the Ball Pit and the girls love the pink princess dressing
table!! Everyone is enjoying Circle Time, choosing a musical instrument to play
and passing the Nursery Rhyme Bag around the circle and picking out a song to
sing.
Also new this term is our TiddlyPotts Book Exchange where children and adults
can bring in books to swap from home with others. A fun and free way to get a
new book!
Lots of children have enjoyed getting crafty during the play group sessions, as
well as painting with vegetables and making hedgehogs out of leaves, we've also
made mini pizzas! If you've been to Pott Row Methodist Church recently you will
have seen the giant poppy collage that the children made for Remembrance
Sunday, I think you'll agree that it's a really eye catching piece of art! This month
the children will be making Firework Glitter pictures and Marshmallow Sparklers
to celebrate Bonfire Night.
At the end of this month we are very lucky to have Paint Me Ceramics of
Hunstanton visiting us to make some beautiful personalised keepsakes with the
children that their families can purchase.
It's hard to believe that in a few weeks we will be getting ready to celebrate
Christmas. We have lots of exciting and festive things planned, but I'll keep those
secret for now! We also have our fundraiser this month, a Pamper Evening at
Grimston Village Hall on Saturday 12th November.
A quick reminder that we are open every Friday during term time, 9:30-11:30 at
Pott Row Methodist Church. We are a breast feeding friendly group and fully
equipped with baby changing facilities. Admission is 2 for one child and 50p
each for additional children. Each session starts with free play and crafts, followed
by snack time where the children have a choice of drink and a selection of
snacks, the adults are welcome to a hot drink with biscuits and cake, we then
have more free play, crafts and songs. Everyone is welcome to enjoy their time at
TiddlyPotts as they wish, all activities are optional.

Help Locating a Friend

I am writing in the vain hope that maybe someone on the council could possibly
help me locate a friend with whom I have lost touch---her first name is Lynn,
surname and tel. No. unfortunately lost in my address book when my handbag
stolen, I remember she lives in Grimston in a small old cottage, and at the time I
knew her she was manager of William Brown estate agents in Ely, which is very
near to my home; at that time my U.S. son in law was having difficulty obtaining
a visa to stay in UK with his UK wife and family, and Lynn was very instrumental
in proving to the immigration authorities that yes indeed he did have a house in
Ingoldisthorpe to house his family and had employment to support them thus
proving he would not be asking for benefit or aid of any kind---I cannot stress how
grateful I and my family are for this, and now that his work is inviting them to
move I would love to contact Lynn in the hope that she is working for an Estate
Agency and would sell their house for them; the Ely agency say that she has left
their company and was looking to work nearer her home, namely Grimston---i
have contacted Hunstanton and K.Lynn W. Brown agents but they have no
knowledge of her whereabouts-----I do apologise for this protracted email but
really wanted to explain my reasons for contacting her and if anyone knows of
Lynn, I would be most grateful if they could please contact me or pass my
message on to her with my email address and tel no. below

83 Leziate Drove
(by Chris Spraggs Garage)

For a good few years I had the unenviable job of trying to help highly motivated
people come to terms with a major interruption to their career hopes and
aspirations. No one welcomes an unexpected interruption to life's dreams. But as
we all know they come from time to time, and it is hard to recover without
bitterness and anger making the situation worse. Recently I came across a book
that addressed the way to recover hope, entitled simply, Hope when you need it
most, by Jack Hayford. It addressed the need of those bereaved through sudden
and unexpected death of a loved one. The kind of event we hear about almost
daily as we listen to the news on radio or television.
In my case I had to help people with aspiration to serve overseas for a life time
cope with the decision that their services were no longer needed and to face a
future back in their homeland.
The kind of thing many refugees to Europe are having to face, having spent their
all for a better future overseas.
I found it helpful to send those I wish to help to a wise Counsellor. When they
returned they would often tell me the sum of her advice. It was a simple one liner.
In acceptance lies peace. If you stop to think of most disappointments that has
to be the first step to recover. Easier said than done! But to fight back can so
often reap yet more disappointment and disillusion. Even if there is an element of
injustice, it is wise to think carefully before engaging a barrister.

Of course there was more to my wise friend's counsel. A lot of ability to accept her
advice turned on the fundamental understanding of personal destiny. Does it all
depend on me or on someone else worthy of trust and commitment to my very
best interests? Happy the man or woman who has someone who will help you
through to acceptance and therefore a peace that can refocus and plan ahead for
the new future. How often that future turns out to better than imagined.
