|We celebrated our 26th Birthday with an excellent supper
and delicious birthday cake made by Coral Batchelor, also enjoyed by 30 visitors from
neighbouring W.I.'s and 5 new members, Irene Groves, Jenny Harvey, Alethia Holman, Jane
Van Poorvliet, and Elain Thwaites.
Afterwards we were royally entertained, in every sense of the word, by Gilly Lewis with
her Tales of the Unexpected, making us roar with laughter at her exploits in Canada,
India, and Greece. She went on to share her experiences on and off the stage in the
Theatre in England and ended with her visit to West Newton W.I. in Sandringham where she
entertained both H.M the Queen and the Queen Mother.
On a sad note, we held a minute silence in memory of Joan Hayle-Brown, a member for 10
years, who died recently. Winners of the monthly flower competition were Jenny
Livingstone, Edna Seely and Pam Akiens.
Our next meeting will be held on 8th May at St. Andrew's Church Hall, Cromer Road at
7.30pm. Come and join the other new members at our friendly institute.

Has anyone seen the General?
In 1904 General William Booth founder of the Salvation Army, visited Sheringham. A picture
of this event appears in Peter Brooks book, 'A Sheringham Album'. The General is being
driven UP Station Road - no one-way system in those days, in an open car! Unfortunately
the Sheringham Corps do not have a copy of this picture. The reproduction in the book is
very poor quality. We hope one of your readers might have an original photograph that we
could borrow please? We would like to have a professional copy made for our archives.

Very loosely based on Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', set on the bridge of a spaceship
straight out of a 1950's movie, with songs from the '50s and 60's.
Also our patron John Atlman (Nasty Nick to you and me) should be making a guest appearance
on screen as the Newslreader.
It is a good fun family show and I am sure everyone who comes along will enjoy it.
