Pork Chops With A Fruity Sauce

4 pork chops or boneless loin steaks
225g (8oz) prunes, no soak variety
60g (2.5 oz) butter
1 tbsp oil
chopped parsley

1 carrot
1 onion
1 celery stick 25g (1oz) butter
1 bouquet
1 clove
salt & pepper
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
200ml (7 floz) red wine
15g butter, softened
1 tbsp flour

First, to make the sauce, chop the vegetables and sauté them gently in the butter, together with the bouquet garni, clove and a little salt and pepper. When they are golden, add the vinegar and the red wine and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain the sauce into a saucepan. Meanwhile, poach the prunes in just enough water to cover them, for 20 minutes. Drain.

Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan and sauté the pork chops on both sides, seasoning them with salt and pepper. When they are cooked and golden brown, remove from the pan and keep warm. Work the butter and flour with a fork until they are blended together then whisk a little until the sauce thickens. Add the hot prunes and taste for seasoning.

To serve, arrange the chops on a dish, pour over the sauce, placing the prunes around the edge and sprinkle with chopped parsly.

Sheringham Evening W.I.

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?
Dear Editor
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. Please contact Annette Copeman, 9 St Austin's Grove. NR26 8DF

Jackie Overton (Joyful West's Shellfish Bar) has decided to have a break from directing and is once more treading the boards, in Fakenham Operatic Society's next production
6 - 10 May Nightly at 7:30pm
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.
