Weybourne Fun Day August 2017

Is this your home from home?

Do you love the Norfolk Coast? If you are a second home owner in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can play a crucial role in keeping the area and its wonderful towns and villages as vibrant tomorrow as they are today. Some tips on how to help:
1. Don’t leave homes empty – if you don’t use it all year round, why not consider short lets?
2. Spend your money locally – buy local products, local crafts, use local businesses
3. Travel sustainably – use the great public transport links, walk, cycle, or help with a local community transport scheme
4. Be part of the community – make links with local people, bring your skills to the area
5. Understand your Norfolk Coast – get involved with local issues, find out about local traditions and features
6. Make your voice heard – volunteer for local causes
7. Keep your place special – keep your garden tidy and your property in good order
8. Ensure your safety – sign up to flood alerts, sign up to oil tank watch schemes
9. Watch your waste – dispose of all of your waste in the correct way
10. Stay in touch and secure – Build a good neighbourhood network, follow local police guidance.

Holt and District Probus Club - Meeting August 2017

Pat Alker was really dressed up when she came to talk to Holt Probus Club on 3rd August. She came to talk about Ethiopia in general and Project Dukem in particular.

Pat Alker at  Holt Probus Club

Her dress was traditional Ethiopian and Project Dukem is the name of the charity that Pat and her husband run to support the school for HIV/AIDS orphans at Dukem - a town in Ethiopia a few miles from Addis Ababa.

When Pat first visited the school in 2007 it lacked even the most rudimentary resources, which is why they decided to start fund raising to help these children receive a basic education. This is the only way that they will have any hope of rising out of the poverty in which they live. An important part of schooling for these youngsters starts with giving them something to eat: if they have nothing to eat they don’t come to school and they need an education to rise from the otherwise inevitable poverty.

Pat told members that Ethiopia is a large, land-locked and largely Christian country where there is much poverty. She showed pictures of her visits around the country, including some of a church ranked as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Pat’s lively and interesting talk was well received by the club; Project Dukem has an interesting Facebook page which is well worth a look at – on Facebook just search for Project Dukem.

Meetings of Holt and District Probus Club are normally held at lunchtime on the 1st Thursday each month at the Feathers in Holt. Enquiries about membership (or about a trial visit - visitors are most welcome) should be made to Secretary Alan Holmes on 01263 710782.
