THE NEW LOOK WAYLAND NEWS
Welcome! Whether you have been a reader since the first issue(Published over 13 years ago in March 1996) or whether you arereading this for the first time we hope you will enjoy the new look Wayland News.But despite the many differences from the last issue, let me reassureyou that one thing has not changed and that is the content of the paper. The ethos of The Wayland News is still the same, providingit is legal, decent, honest and truthful, you write it and we will printit. We don’t edit, change or alter your submissions without very,very good reason. Also, The Wayland News will remain freewherever or however you get your copy.Inside you will find everything that you are used to seeing in TheWayland News and more. This issue we have expanded our circulation somewhat to include a wider geographical area andtaking account of this, we are now including more news from thearea, hence the subheading “With News From Around Breckland”.So, if you are reading this, perhaps for the first time, and you areassociated with club, group or organisation like those reportingwithin these pages and would like us to include your news then please get in touch. Full details are on page 2. Equally, if you wantto advertise – you will be surprised how cheap it is – then please getin touch. We don’t have a large sales force and we won’t pester youfor advertising. Every business in this issue has approached us because they have recognised how cost effective it is.Lastly I would like to pay tribute to our previous printers, Rollmark (Dieletlit) Ltd of Thetford. Until this issue, Rollmark have printedevery single copy of The Wayland News and they have always provided the most incredible service and support. I am very sad tolose the support of Anne, Claire, Tony and Pete and all the rest of the staff at Rollmark. Our only reason for changing is that this styleof paper is just not what they do, but I will say that if you want any printing done give them a ring first on 01842 754 984 – you won’t be disappointed!It has been very hard work to get the new systems and workflow in place for these changes and no doubt there will be some teethingtroubles, so please enjoy this latest issue but if there is somethingyou don’t like let me know and if there is something you do thentell you friends about us! Julian Horn, Editor.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
THE DALTONS
First, let me thank you for your help in trying to trace my grandfather, WilliamDalton, who was born in Watton. As a child I was told that my grandfather was killed in World War I, but perhaps this is not true. Mr David Jessup phoned me with some interesting information about William Dalton. Davidlived on a farm as a young boy and he recalls his father telling him about aman called ‘Tinker’ who lived in a wooden hut on the outskirts of their farm.He thinks he was William Dalton who had been gassed during the war, notkilled, but why was he officially listed as dead? Apparently, after beinggassed, he became unstable. Perhaps during the turmoil of the end of WorldWar I he was presumed killed on the battlefield but instead went back toWatton. I cannot help but wonder whether my grandmother and mother knewabout this. As far as I know, they never saw him again after 1914. What amystery!Amazingly enough, I had another phone call from Mrs Pamela Grigg of Saham Toney, she too lived on a farm and remembers seeing William Daltonwalking past their house dressed in a long black coat, a check cap and a sack of shopping on his back and, yes, he lived in a wooden hut!My friend has sent me a list of Dalton generations which I enclose. The nameson the list seem to be fairly modern, so perhaps some of them are alive today.They are the children and grandchildren of Isaac Dalton (1880), William’s brother. I would love to hear from any of them. Perhaps the Wayland Newscould help me again?Isaac Dalton 22 May 1886 (son of Zebedee Dalton and Maria Webster)married Winifred Waller 1884 children: Dennis Stanley Dalton, KennethDalton, Violet DaltonDennis Stanley Dalton married Joan Beatrice Emery children: Pamela AudreyDalton, Gillian Margarette DaltonKenneth Dalton married Joyce Hatto child Paul DaltonViolet Dalton married Eric Peplar children: Susan Peplar and David Peplar I still hope someone there might know of a living Dalton who would ring meon 01964 670357. We may be relatives and I'm relying on you! Yourssincerely M. Taylor 
D DAY MEMORIES
Having just watched the 65th anniversary of D Day from France on television,I was prompted to write of the scene I saw just prior to the crossing fromPortsmouth.As some of your readers may know I was an ambulance driver in the ATS,now known as the WRAC, I had just been posted to the Military MentalHospital at Banstead in Surrey and was being taken there by one of our officers. On approaching a cross roads somewhere in South London, can’tremember where now, the lights were red and the Military Police Red Caps were holding up all the traffic, then suddenlythere was this rumbling and army vehicles and a convoy was coming along - it looked as if the whole British Army wason the move. Tanks, lorries, guns, lorry loads of all sorts of equipment and hundreds of men in open lorries. It seemedto go on for ages. We sat and watched wondering what ever was happening. It wasn’t until next morning that we heardwhat was going on. I often wonder how many of those brave men I waved off managed to get safely home. It was ascene I shall never forget. Mary Riches
THANK YOU
I would like to thank all the kind people of Watton who helped me off the crossing on 22 April, 2009at lunch time, especially a gentleman who loaned me his wheelchair for removal from the crossing. Name withheld by request.
CLOSURE &SALE OFLOCALCHILDCAREFACILITIES
After a senior staff resignation inlate April, Great HockhamChildren’s Centre has closed itsdoors for the final time on theadvice of Children's Services andOfsted. Fewer children needingchildcare in the local area and a poor recent Ofsted report havecontributed to the closure of thefacility, which was located in thegrounds of Great Hockham PrimarySchool.Chair, Debi Waddingham said “It is particularly sad as the pre-schoolhad been in the village for the last30 years but it is now unsustainableand our recent losses were runningat £90 per day. We need to sell theentire stock and premises to paystaff redundancy and service costs.”“Everything must go” said Debbi“Toys, cooking equipment andfridge, even the clock on the wall.The building is a modular one thatcan be removed from the site andhelp is available to arrange that if anyone is interested.”Anybody wishing to buy any of thestock or premises at bargain pricesshould contact Debi 01953 498222.

50TH ‘NO COLD CALLING ZONE’ IN SAHAM
The Oval and Neville Close in Saham Toney have become the latest areas in Norfolk to be designated No Cold CallingZones.Harry Humphrey, Norfolk County Council's Cabinet member for Fire and Community Protection, said: “We aredelighted to have reached such an impressive milestone of launching the 50th No Cold Calling Zone in Norfolk.“The zones not only support the community in helping to turn away unwanted cold callers before they arrive onresidents' doorsteps but also are highly effective at reducing crime, and ensuring householders feel safe and secure intheir homes.” Norfolk County Council Trading Standards' Officer, Julie Markham, said: “The positive feedback we have received fromresidents and partners indicates that these zones are very effective. They also provide us with valuable information abouttraders working in these areas, which can help us in our efforts to take actionagainst doorstep crime.”In order for a location to become a No Cold Calling Zone, it has to meet anumber of criteria and have a history of cold calling.The number of incidents reported to Norfolk Trading Standards and Norfolk Police, the residents' vulnerability and the support of the local town or parishcouncil are all taken into consideration when deciding whether an area can bedesignated a No Cold Calling Zone.This latest No Cold Calling Zone has been launched following a survey of residents' views with 70 per cent of households in the area favouring thelaunch of the scheme.It has been set up in conjunction with Saham Toney Parish Council.Elsewhere in the county, Norfolk Trading Standards carried out a survey of 12of the established No Cold Calling Zones and received positive feedback fromresidents who said the zones not only stopped cold callers in the area butshowed that “somebody cared about the vulnerability of older people”.

EVENING WI GARDEN PARTY
What a difference a day makes! Wednesday it rained and rained and theforecast for Thursday was not promising, which made us consider changingour plans for a Garden Party and celebrate our 19th birthday indoors. In theend we decided to keep to the original decision. Well, whilst erecting thegazebo in the afternoon we got soaked BUT come early evening and that hadall changed, the sun shone and we were able to enjoy ourselves. The chickenracing was fun, if a little chaotic, and the snail racing was one to keep youguessing – just when you think a winner is in sight it decides to turn aroundand go back the way it came!! The Committee put on an excellent buffetwhich was enjoyed by everyone. Many thanks to Joan (and her family) for hosting our party, we had a great time.A few days later, in glorious weather, we had a stall at the Carnival. As the Norfolk Federation is celebrating 90 years we did a WI ‘Treasure Hunt’. Thetreasure being two bottles of wine - won by a lady called Ann (sorry nosurname) who chose the correct WI number 27. We also had a lolly dip for thechildren which proved very popular with the youngsters.We are now looking forward to hosting the Fashion Evening on the 19th Juneand in July (9th) our speaker will be giving a talk entitled ‘Dolly Mops andBrasses’ – a title to keep us guessing about the actual subject but I am assuredit is very amusing – I’ll tell you about it next month – maybe some of youladies might like to come along and hear the talk at first hand. Our regular meetings are held in the Watton Christian Community Centre at 7.30 pm onthe second Thursday of the month.
Sunday Afternoon Teas at Thompson Village Hall
