The Mundesley Soap Box Derby


Because Lis & I were away in
France on Saturday 13th June
when the Soap, we missed this
amazing event which had not
been held for over ten years.
However we were delighted
to see these photos from Paul
Damen and Eduardo Garcia
on our return.
With Mundesley High Street
closed to traffic, crowds of
people were there, ready to
watch the races which
started at 1pm.

Soap Boxes of all makes, shapes & sizes


took part with about thirty competitors
taking part in the event, many of whom
were wearing fancy dress.

Prizes of first, second and third place were


awarded in the different age sections and
for best soap box in the various races.

From The Editor

SAWN TIMBER

Over the past two weeks the weather


has at times been wonderfully warm
then incredibly cold for the time of
year, but night after night we have
been treated to some absolutely
stunning sunsets.
I wish I could take even a half
decent photo to capture all the
fabulous colours.
The beginning of summer brings
out all the mad English ideas and
none more so then the revival of
the splendid Soap Box Derby in
Mundesley on the 13th June.
Thanks so much to Paul Damen &
Eduardo Garcia for providing us
with the photographs on the front
page and page six.
Irrespective that there was a drop or
two of rain during the afternoon,
you can see from the photos that
everyone had a great time, either
watching the races or taking part,
plus 1000 was raised for the
First Responders.
The organisers, the Scout group
of Mundesley, should take a well
earned pat on their backs, plus

HARD AND SOFT WOOD

GARDEN SHEDS AND


FENCING
DISCOUNTED GARDEN TIMBER
ALL AVAILABLE NOW FROM YOUR LOCAL
thanks to all who came and spent
while supporting the competitors.
We are all hoping for another Soap
Box Derby in Mundesley next year.
As usual loads of Special Events
coming up this Summer, see
pages 17 & 18 of this issue.

Enjoy Your Crab Tales

My mistake entirely, even though three of us did
the proofreading before the paper went to the
printers.....no-one spotted it! My only excuse is
that apart from getting ready to go off to France
as soon as I had finished, the computer decided
to close down numerous times in the middle of
my typesetting. I must also apologise to Cindy
Johnson for leaving her name out of the thanks
for her review of Copacabana. Sorry!

Dear Editor,
This is just to say a big thank you to the team

Such a surprise to win and now we know

Dear Editor,
Thorpe Market Church History Project
When there are events at St Margarets Church
we are constantly approached by visitors who
delight in telling us that they were married at
the church and in preparation for a future local
history day, we would like to be able to have a
display of Weddings through the years.
If any of your Crab Tales readers have such
an affinity with our village church PLEASE
encourage them to contact us on:
info@thorpemarket.org.uk

With modern technology there is no need for


anyone to part with cherished family memories,
a simple scan is all that is needed.
Early 20th century, or who knows, even late
19th century would be a wonderful discovery.
All the wedding registers are held at the County
Records Office so we have access to details of
all the weddings, even pre-dating photographs.
We have even had mention of wedding dresses
still lurking in attics. Any reminiscences,
anecdotes and especially pictures would
be very welcomed.
This will be quite a big project and if there is
anyone with family connections who would
like to be part of collating and preparing
material for display, please do contact us.

The Crab Tales recently received the letter
below and forwarded it on before printing.

Dear Editor,
I read your magazine regularly & would like to
bring to the attention of all readers on the back
page, which shows the full page Sandy Gulls
Caravan Park advert in the bottom right hand
corner The David Bellamy Gold Conservation
Award presented to the caravan park.
I would like it to be known to all readers that
despite this wonderful award they received
I would like to ask why the caravan site
constantly allow all types of rubbish to
be thrown over the cliff behind their site.
This would also include the 2 recent heaps of
stone chippings they left on the cliff top after
their entrance roads were resurfaced which
had to be cleared away by NNDC
I am sure they must be proud of their award
particularly in view of the way they allow
the cliff top to be treated behind their site
which resembles a rubbish dump.
It is a complete disgrace that makes a mockery
of such an award from a great conservationist
such as David Bellamy.
Yours Faithfully,
Julian Mintz, Historian
Response from Sandy Gulls: Thank you Liz for
giving us the opportunity to reply to Mr Mintz
letter. Kind Regards, Sam.

Dear Mr Mintz,
Thank you for your letter to the Crab Tales
mentioning the rubbish over and on the Cliff
Tops of Sandy Gulls.
As a long established family run business of 35
years plus, we pride ourselves in the environment
we provide for our customers, we have over the

years worked towards achieving our Gold David


Bellamy award which we are very proud of and
gained and have maintained since 2011.
We have a park policy to recycle all the waste
produced on the site and advisory information
is given to all visitors and caravan owners as
to the recycling and disposing of their waste.
Recently we had the site road resurfaced and are
aware that the contractors stored temporarily the
Stone Chippings & Turf on the cliff top behind
our main site which we are entitled to do on our
own private land - this was removed by them
(not NNDC as you wrote) as soon as convenient
for the contractors. The grass and wild flowers
are now flourishing in the area.
We are also aware that none biodegradable items
have been dumped over the cliff and in conjunction with NNDC have put up signs in an effort
to stop this re-occurring. We also have a huge
problem with Dog mess & plastic bags being
thrown over the Cliff edge & Cliff Top which
again we monitor and clear up where we can.
The Cliff top path is privately owned by Sandy
Gulls, we have always maintained the path for
our customers and ramblers to use. We are now
proud to be a part of the coastal path. Therefore
unable to stop access to the particular part
mentioned by you in your letter.
We thank you for your concern & would welcome
a helpful friendly discussion with yourself as to
what else you believe we can undertake to stop
the dumping of permanent waste on & over the
cliff. Could you please contact us direct on:
01263 720 513 or visit reception between
9am & 12 noon where we will happily
welcome your thoughts and ideas.
Kind Regards
Samantha (Park Manager)

Dear Liz,
My Pilates class takes place every Monday
at 10am at East Runton Community Hall.
I hope to reach the local people and holiday
makers by offering a gentle class that is
suitable for all ages and all abilities.
As Dr Angela Hallatt said in your last issue
Exercise leads to healthier & longer lives
and lowers the risk of chronic disease.
Pilates is mainly mat based so no high aerobic
or intensity exercises, people can work at their
own pace and rest as much as they need to.
The community is very friendly and the group
work very well together. Classes cost 4 per
session and are suitable for all ages, abilities
and to both men and women. I have been a
Fully Qualified Instructor since 2002.
Please contact me on: 01263 588 935
Or Mobile: 07900 733 832
Many thanks.

Dear Editor,
Since 20061 have been assisting a teacher of a
Polish High School to bring a small group of
her pupils to Cromer each July for a 2 week
summer holiday.
The purpose of the visit is twofold, to enable
the students to have a holiday by the sea and
to practice their spoken English.
The sad news is that in 2015 the pattern has
been broken and no students will be enjoying
our hospitality and improving their language
skills this year.

The reason the visit has had to be cancelled this


summer is simple. Not enough host families !
The teenage students are normally accommodated
with families in Cromer and a payment is made
to the host family to cover their costs.
There is a programme of instruction for students
and on weekdays they are fully occupied from
9am until teatime each day. Hosts do not need
to have any knowledge of the Polish language.
The Polish teacher concerned, Mrs. M. Strazla,
is visiting Cromer in early July to try & recruit
some additional hosts to ensure that in 2016
the Course may continue.
She will personally be available to speak to
anyone interested in becoming a host.
In the meantime, although I am not now directly
involved with the organization, should you wish
to know more about this project I would be more
than happy to explain things more fully.
I can be contacted on 01263 512 692.
Thank you.
Yours sincerely,
Frank Chesterfield

Dear Editor.
I note that Mr H. Mouse is at it again (issue 062)
- hes quite an old mouse you know so I suggest
he dusts off his bus pass and takes a trip on the
bus with the blacked out windows - he will
certainly NOT be able to enjoy our beautiful
Norfolk countryside and hes bound to end
up with a headache.
Talking of buses - just lately there have been quite
a few disgruntled passengers - mainly because
Sanders Coaches dont seem to be keeping to
their end of the bargain - i.e. they just dont
turn up, leaving passengers stranded with
no information whatsoever.
Moreover it appears theres nothing we can do
- we really are the poor relations where travel
is concerned.
Janet Munro,
Mundesley-On-Sea.

Dear Editor,
This years Crab & Lobster Festival was a super
smashing success, magically supported by superb
sunny weather! The opening concert at the Pier
Pavilion Theatre was played to a packed house.
The entertainment offered something for everyone
Pat Nearney, Marlenes Dancers, My Bad Sister,
Backdrafts and The Sheringham Shantymen.
The weekend continued in Cromer - top chefs
with seafood dishes, market stalls, live music,
crab sandwiches, Punch & Judy, giant fishtank,
heritage demos, crab dressing & entertainment.
In Sheringham the village fete atmosphere
attracted the crowds with local chefs, ethnic
foods, crab dressing demonstrations, morris
dancers, street entertainers, beer, bees, sheep,
music, boats, coastguards, Shantymen - and
Razz the Clown entertained in both towns!
On Sunday charity walkers & Cromer Walkers
are Welcome linked the towns, and there was a
new Crazy Crab Competition from the Pier.
Record crowds enjoyed the weekend and local
accommodation was booked up weeks in advance.
The best news of all... dates for next years
festival are 21st-22nd May 2016.

History Tales

Thorpe Market & Lord Suffield


The King Of Thorpe
In 1841 the noted gardener & nurseryman James
Grigor toured Norfolk recording the fine estates,
gardens and trees he visited. One of his favourite
trees was an oak in Thorpe Market which excited
his wonder and astonishment and which he
described as the oak of the county.
It is altogether a wonderful tree. It soars to a
height of about 70 feet, it has a trunk 42 feet in
length, its circumference being 21feet, 6 inches.
A party who visited it lately, consisting of four
ladies and two gentlemen, with hands joined,
could with difficulty clasp the trunk.
The tree was situated on Lord Suffields Gunton
Park Estate, near to Mr Days garden.
Mr Grigor said that it was impossible to look upon
the tree without emotion. Surrounded as it is by
lofty trees of various character, it rises to a great
height above everything else of the vegetable kind
in the neighbourhood, and claims the proud
distinction of being the king and chief of all.
The oak reveals the perfect appearances of the
species ... well was the foliage of such a tree
chosen by them as the symbol of the highest
dream of nobility, of imperial authority,
and civic distinction .

Proudly rearing itself above all the pigmy tribes


that are about it, it has become to the villagers an
object upon which they look with veneration and
awe, their children know it, and run eagerly and
proudly to show it to us: by them it is very
appropriately called the Great Oak,
the King of Thorpe.

Suffield, were severely wounded. At the Norfolk


Assizes, six of the poachers, were found guilty
and sentenced to death. Lord Suffield pleaded
that their lives might be spared and the sentence
was reduced to transportation.
When the gang was being conveyed by coach
from Norwich to Portsmouth, the convicts got
free from their chains and made a desperate
attempt to escape, but they were too
heavily ironed.
They attacked the coachman, and one of the
guards presented a pistol, which missed fire;
Johnson, the gaoler, rushed amongst them
with a cutlass, and subdued them.

St. Margarets Church

Crime And Punishment


In January, 1805 a murderous poaching affray
occurred in Thorpe Wood, near Aylsham, when
several game watchers, in the service of Lord

In 1796 Lord Suffield demolished the crumbling


church at Thorpe Market and replaced it with
the present building.
The new parish church has inspired
much comment ever since.
A visitor in 1819 criticised the stained glass in
the church; which instead of being concentrated
in such a manner as to throw devotional gloom
into the church ..... is scattered and in greens,
purple, reds and yellows, giving to the whole
an appearance of too much gaiety.

Cromer Pier Show


The Cromer End of the Pier show is now the
ONLY one of its kind in Europe and no other
Pier Theatre in Europe can boast the same
credentials.
This year sees the return of comedian Paul
Eastwood whose cheeky humour made him
a firm favourite with audiences last year.
Also making a welcome return is Ben Langley
who first appeared in the 2012 Pier Show with
his very own brand of visual comedy.
Making her very first appearance at the Pavilion
Theatre is the Multi-Instrumentalist, Rachel King.
Her versatility in Violin, Alto Saxophone, Soprano
Saxophone, Flute, Panpipes & Piano has given
her the chance to work for some of the worlds
most prestigious hotels and cruise companies.
Male vocalist Luke Walsh makes his very first
appearance in Cromer and is looking forward
to a summer season by the sea.
Vocalist Jane Watkins appeared in last years show
and is looking forward to meeting up with her
friends and fans.

Book Choice
The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
Review by Mrs Rita
Reid of a recent book
read by Sidestrand
Book Group.
This book is a remarkable account largely
unknown to Europeans,
of a period of history
from the early 1900s
to the middle of the
Second World War.
It is not a novel in
the true sense, but, but more of a documetary
based on the collective memories of Japanese
women who, unable to find husbands in their
own country, were driven to embark on
a hazardous journey to California.
In dreadful conditions they set out, clutching out
of date photographs provided by unscrupulous
marriage brokers, of future husbands (Japanese
men who had already emigrated to to the U.S.A.)
Unfortunately many of these photos bore little or
no resemblance to the men.
Instead of having well established jobs many of
these men were expecting their wives to work
in hot dusty fields or as domestic sevants to
American women.
It is unbearably sad to think of the plight of these
women who had eagerly been looking forward
to a bright new future..... Unable to speak the
language, they were isolated for most of their
lives, whereas their children soon became
integrated in school and made local friends.
The disgrace of being an unmarried woman in
Japan would appear to outweigh the disadvantages
of a life of drudgery in California. Having been
cruelly deceived on their arrival & realizing that
there was no escape from their bleak future, the
wives wrote glowing letters to their parents back
in Japan, saying how happy they were - too
proud to admit the truth .
Their unhappiness continued when Pearl Harbour
brought America into the Second world War.
All Japanese nationals were regarded as possible
enemies and whole families living on the western
seaboard were uprooted overnight and transported
to camps hundreds of miles away from the coast,
where they were interned as prisoners.
Recently the American Government has
offered an apology for the way in which
they treated these Japsnese families.

I recently visited Liz at Selbrigg Lodge for a


Luxury Spa Manicure ...it is really amazing
my hands have not been that soft in years
and they stayed soft for days.
Liz has a beauty studio in her vibrant garden
which is alive with many birds and occasional
squirrel, fascinating to watch while she is busy
pampering your hands, feet, head or every part
of your body you could be treating with one of
her beauty treatments.
Liz first worked in the hair and beauty industry
when she left school, then moved into hospitality.
In 2011 when her husbands work moved the
family to Norfolk, Liz decided to re-train her
beauty skills, to which she is constantly
adding more treatments and updating
her many techniques.
The studio built in Lizs garden offers peace
and privacy, plus no problems with parking.
Liz offers good value and special promotions
as shown on the adjacent advertisement.

An Old Geezer...
....who had been retired for a long time, became
very bored and decided to open a medical clinic.
He put a sign up that said:

Dr. Geezers Clinic.


Get your treatment for $500,
if not cured get back $1,000.
Doctor Young, who was positive that this old
geezer knew nothing about medicine, thought
this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000.
So he went to Dr. Geezers clinic and this is
what transpired:
Dr. Young: Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste
in my mouth, can you please help me ??
Dr. Geezer: Nurse, please bring medicine from
box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Youngs mouth.

Dr. Young: Aaagh !!-This is Gasoline!


Dr. Geezer: Congratulations! Youve got your

taste back. That will be $500.

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a


couple of days figuring to recover his money.
Dr. Young: I have lost my memory, I cannot
remember anything.
Dr. Geezer: Nurse, please bring medicine from

box 22 and put 3 drops in the patients mouth.

Dr. Young: Oh no you dont, that is Gasoline!


Dr. Geezer: Congratulations! Youve got your

memory back. That will be $500.

Dr. Young (having lost $1000) leaves angrily


and comes back after several more days.
Dr. Young: My eyesight has become weak
and I can hardly see !
Dr. Geezer: Well, I dont have any medicine

for that so ... Heres your $1000 back.

Dr. Young: But this is only $500...


Dr. Geezer: Congratulations!
You got your vision back!
That will be $500.

Moral of story...........
.......... Just because youre Young doesnt
mean that you can outsmart an old Geezer !!
Thanks to David Thorne for this.

Help for Heroes


Written by Miranda Marshall
Director at Hayes + Storr

Q: Why is the Duke of Westminster one of


the richest men in Britain?
A: Because his late fathers estate was

exempted from Inheritance Tax due to


the death on active service exemption.
The 4th Duke was shot in the knee during the
Italian campaign in WWII. It was held that the
injury accelerated his death 20 years later.
It was a major reason behind the Grosvenor
Estates being saved for the family.
Death on active service exemption is the
oldest exemption in the long history of death
duties (now called Inheritance Tax).
It dates back to the reign of William & Mary and
to the Probate Duty in 1694. It applies where the
taxpayer died from a wound inflicted, accident
occurring or disease contracted while on active
service against an enemy or on other service of
a warlike nature or involving the same risks.
The death does not need to be on the battlefield:
it is enough that the wound, accident or disease
was inflicted, occurred or contracted when on
active service. It does not need to be the only or
direct pathological cause of death; it simply
has to be a cause. The thinking is that those
who give their life for their country should
not pay tax to their country on their death.
This relief has been substantially extended and
the reliefs increased by the Finance Act 2015.
It now covers the death of emergency personnel
and also the death of constables and service
personnel targeted because of their status.
The old legislation had only exempted relief
from the death charge but this has now been
widened and includes lifetime gifts. In order
to claim the exemption a certificate must be
obtained from the MoD.

This article aims to supply general information,


but it is not intended to constitute advice. Every
effort is made to ensure that the law referred to
is correct at the date of publication and to avoid
any statement which may mislead.
However no duty of care is assumed to any
person and no liability is accepted for any
omission or inaccuracy. Always seek our
specific advice.

The death of emergency personnel exemption


covers search-&-rescue services such as coastguards & RNLI, the police, fire brigade, medical,
ambulance & paramedic services; it also covers
humanitarian aid workers. The person must die
while responding to emergency circumstances.
The death may occur later and relief applies if the
injury sustained was one of the causes of death.

If you require advice on this matter please


telephone our private client department
on: 01263 825 959.
For advice on any other legal matter please
telephone our Sheringham office
on: 01263 825 959 or
email: law@hayes-storr.com.

Sainsburys North
Walsham.....

Danny Willcox from SERV Norfolk, added:


Wed like to thank the customers, colleagues
and the community at Sainsburys in North
Walsham for their support over the past
year to keep our wheels moving.
It has made such a difference to SERV Norfolk
and were extremely grateful for the donations
and awareness weve been able to raise.
Vote for one of these charities before 28th June
in-store or visit: www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk.
Arts North Norfolk
North Norfolk Community Transport
The National Coastwatch, Mundesley
All three charities will be displaying posters
to showcase the work their group does in the
community on a board at the front of the
store for at least a week before the vote.

.... has raised 3070 for SERV Norfolk, as part


of the Local Charity of the Year scheme.
The charity provides an out-of-hours motorcycle
and car response service without any charge to
Norfolks NHS hospitals using volunteer riders
and drivers.
They operate 365 nights a year and deliver
urgently needed supplies of blood, blood
products, donated human breast milk or
take samples for urgent analysis.
The group, chosen by customers & colleagues
last June, has received support from the store
for the past year.
Activities included monthly 2nd hand book
stalls, colleague canteen cake, craft days and
a quiz night. One of the stores colleagues is
a volunteer coordinator with SERV Norfolk &
takes calls from hospitals requiring the
service then contacts the rider on duty
to set them out on their job that night.
Neil Grainger, Store Manager of Sainsburys
Nth Walsham, said: Weve had an excellent
year supporting SERV Norfolk, our customers
& colleagues have got involved with a number
of fundraising activities. Wed like to thank
everyone at SERV Norfolk for making it
such a brilliant partnership.

14

For the constables and armed services personnel


targeted because of their status exemption to
apply it is immaterial whether the individual
was carrying out his duties when attacked.
It applies to both serving & former police officers
and service personnel. The case of Fusilier Lee
Rigby is a good example of such a death as are
many Royal Ulster Constabulary officers killed
in Northern Ireland over the years.
This surely must be the one tax relief which
no political party will seek to overturn.

Blue Plaques

He was followed as coxswain by Henry


Shrimp Davies, the nephew of Henry
Blogg (born in 1914 and died in 2002)
in 1947 who served as coxswain until
1976. (He got his nickname from his
size as a youngster).

For Cromer Lifeboat Legends


Three legendary Cromer RNLI Coxswains
were honoured on Saturday 13th June.
The humble houses they had lived in had
distinctive blue plaques erected on the
outside of the buildings.
Cromers association with RNLI and its history
of lifeboats, is full of stories of bravery and seamanship & the town Council, along with other
interested parties were keen to recognise this.
The plaques were unveiled in honour of Henry
Blogg, Henry Shrimp Davies & Lewis Tuna
Harrison by members of their families. These
3 men had many years of service to the RNLI.
Henry Blogg was born in 1876 and died in
1954 and was coxswain from 1909 to 1947.

Lewis Tuna Harrison was born in 1913


and died in 2006; he was coxswain of
Cromers Number 2 boat from 1953
to 1967. (His habitual whistling as a
youngster earned him the nickname
Tuner which was later adapted to
fishier Tuna)
John Lee and Teresa Smith, the grandchildren of Shrimp are pictured on
the left, unveiling the blue plaque at
the house at number 5 New Street,
Cromer, where Henry Shrimp
Davies once lived.

Soup & Pud

On Friday 19th June, Lis and I popped in to


enjoy the Mundesley Church monthly lunch
some 90 yards along Hilda Road.
This is always an enjoyable and tasty lunch of
a choice of home-made soups and puddings,
followed by a cup of tea or coffee. Some 30
souls enjoyed this lunch.
At 5.00 each, that includes tickets to a raffle,
it is good value for money, that goes to the
Church funds.We won a box of chocolates
this time round.
Sadly, until Friday September 18th the Church
takes a break from running these great lunches
as the summer takes over.
