Sheringham Community Paper Call me old fashioned, but surely if they close the Public Toilets near YESU we are going to have major sewage problems in the Summer. Let's face it, the dogs already do their business on our pavements and if these loos should be closed I have no doubt that they will be joined by some members of the human race! People living in the small alleys off the High Street beware! We have many older people living in Sheringham who also need to feel safe in the knowledge that a Public Convenience is at hand when required. Small children and expectant Mothers too! HANDS OFF OUR LOOS!
JOE HANNAH - THE LOCAL FOOTBALLING HERO from Ron Spendloff
Sheringham Community Paper I have been forwarded Issue 7 of your magazine, keeping me in contact with my old stamping ground. Some of your senior readers may recall the name. I married Averil the daughter of Joe Hannah, the local footballing 'hero'. Joe played for Norwich City F. C., for some 17 years and also for the F. A. during the 1924-25 season in Australia. This association with the Canaries resulted in him being selected with 24 players past and present of the club, being enrolled in the Hall of Fame at a dinner at the Club on Friday 31st January 03. This was an event which sealed off the various activities during the celebration of the centenary of the club.


The dinner was attended by a large number of players past and present, together with their partners. I was invited to attend the event as a representative of Joe, together with a guest. With my daughter, Mrs Linsey Byron, we rubbed shoulders with a number of famous Canaries and were made extremely welcome. We were allotted a table given the title 'The Oldies'. I won't comment on that. there was Bernard Robinson, who had played with Joe, despite his 91 years he was in great form; Jackie and Robin Jackson, grandson of the famous 'Give it to Varco' individual; and John and Clive Vinall relatives of another familiar name who played during the period Joe was involved. The 25 members who were to be depicted in the Hall of Fame, were each given a framed collection of 100 players, with the individual shown with a larger photograph and his playing career. The 75 players making up the century were nominated by supporters, the other 25 were nominated by the club. The following day we were guests of the club at the match against Stoke City. The 25 members, either the individual or his representative, were introduced to the crowd, marching in pairs from the players tunnel to the centre spot, and then parading round the pitch itself. It was a poignant moment for my daughter, as it was the anniversary of her grandfather's passing, an announcement was made to that effect. It was a weekend to remember and even the atrocious road conditions on the M11 failed to stop us, it was marvellous.
