Plant of the month
Go for a walk down any country lane in March and you'll probably see the first primroses in spring telling us there's another year unfolding.
Rake lawns vigorously and mow with blades set high, spike badly drained lawns and brush sandy compost into the holes.

Layer amelanchier, celastrus and lilacs. Take root cuttings of campsis radicans, hardy fuschias and buddleia.

Fertilise perennial beds and apply a thick mulch, established plants may still be divided and replanted.

Propagate summer flowering types from new shoots.

Protect new tender shoots from frost.

House plants
Water more freely, move shade loving plants away from windows and begin feeding established plants.

Embarrassing Stories

Sheringham Community Paper

I was feeling very pleased with myself for having picked up a bargain at the local Salvation Army Shop. A beautiful, floral Laura Ashley dress for my little girl to wear to a 'posh' wedding.

She looked really pretty and many comments were made on the beautiful dress she was wearing. The guest of honour, a minor Royal duly came up to us for the obligatory chat, and yes you've guessed. He told my daughter how pretty she looked and asked wear she bought her dress.

'Oh" she said, "Mum bought this at the Sally Bash". I just wanted the floor to open up and swallow me whole.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland and The Stroke Association have teamed up to Make a Difference to Norfolk by offering free blood pressure checks and information to people all over the county. On April 5, nurses will be taking free blood pressure checks in virtually all towns throughout the day. Information on reducing high blood pressure which is one of the greatest risk factors for stroke will also be available. Stroke is the single biggest cause of death and disability in England and Wales and the number one cause of severe disability. Over 100,000 people are affected each year. People with high blood pressure have up to seven times greater chance of stroke than those with normal blood pressure but a number of simple life changes can help to reduce this risk of suffering a stroke. Tony Nash, Rotary District Governor for East Anglia and a member of the Cromer and Sheringham Rotary Club, comments : "Rotary International supports The Stroke Association in its campaign for stroke awareness. This devastating condition could be prevented from affecting the great number of people which it does each year, if people would only have their blood pressure checked and take appropriate measures to keep levels under control. Simple life adjustments such as those explained in The Stroke Association's information leaflets can have life saving effects."

The Stroke Association was named Rotary International's charity of the year back in July 2002 and since then both organisation's have held a number of fundraising and stroke awareness events under the theme of Make a Difference.
