Preparations for the 2003 Sheringham Carnival are now well underway. Nominations for Carnival Queen are now coming in and selection is due to take place on Tuesday 27th May. Graham Cole's itinerary for his visit to Sheringham to crown the Carnival Queen is close to being finalised. It is hoped that this visit will take in various places in Sheringham, where there will be some excellent photo opportunities. The itinerary will be released nearer the time. There will also be several general photo opportunities leading up to the Carnival.

The Carnival Programme is expected to be available by the end of May. Anyone still wishing to advertise in the programme should contact Norfolka2z (@ Sheringham Paper), who are designing the programme.

The Carnival Committee would like to express their thanks to The Burlington Hotel, Sheringham for their generous support of the Star Wars Festival.

The Carnival Committee request that all press enquiries should be directed to their Press Officer, Peter Taylor.

Something new at Sheringham Museum
Sheringham museum opens for Easter with two new displays and three updated ones. The story of golf in Sheringham is told in words and pictures, from the first 9 hole course opened in 1892 - complete with a cricket pitch in the centre - through to photographs of players such as Lee Travino and Gary Player competing in pro-Am matches. The invasion of the course by suffragettes is recalled and there are photographs of famous players and members. Among the latter are E. Phillips Oppenheim (captain 1912-13) and Conan Doyle. The member's visitors book at the club also records a visit by a Mr. Moriaty. This poses the intriguing question of whether Conan Doyle met this visitor and if so did he base one of his most famous characters on this player? Gutta-percha golf balls, over 100 years old, are on display together with cups won and clubs made by Ernest Risebro, the club's professional who served it well during a record fifty two years.

The second new display is on the Norfolk Domesday Book with two volumes of a presentation set showing the original script and a modern translation. There are also on display, two soft back volumes containing all the Norfolk entries at the reasonable price of 24.50 and on sale in the museum shop.

With the recent acquisition of a suberb embroidered picture by the Sheringham born fisherman artist John Craske the opportunity has been taken to mount an enlarged display on the work of this practically unknown artist. There is a small pamflet on sale at 50p tracing the life and times of this 'painter in wools'. The exisiting display relating to the Roman Kiln found at Upper Sheringham has been moved and rearranged. The Museum shop has a range of new items in sale including copies of the Ordnance Survey Tour Travel Maps for Norfolk at just 3.99 each, copies of the Golf Club's Centenary Book are also on sale.
