Dear Editor. It seems in this day and age, people are very quick to complain but forget to give credit where it is due. So here is a break from the norm. What a refreshing change to see a local paper that is just that, local. Your paper supports local businesses, charities and volunteer organisations. You run stories on the history of the town and take a great interest in events and issues, which are of interest to the people of Sheringham, and all those who strive to keep Sheringham the fantastic seaside town it is.

All too often, local papers lose sight of their purpose and become consumed with just filling the paper with advertisements and/or becoming a voice and soundboard for itself. It is very noticeable when talking to friends on how much your paper is liked and read.

I have been a volunteer on the North Norfolk Railway all my life and treat Sheringham as my home and have watched the town and railway go through many changes. The thing that does not change though is the way in which people support each other. The town needs a paper that sticks to local issues and does not lose itself in world politics and itself.

Keep up the good work and your tireless efforts to cover the local issues and stories that matter to the people of Sheringham. I am sure that while you strive to publicise and support the town and its businesses, they will support you. Well done @ Sheringham. Ian Starks

"The Sheringham Preservation Society"
are holding an
"Antique Valuation Day"
on Saturday May 17th 9am - 4pm
at the St Andrews Church Hall.

Sheringham Community Centre
G A Keys the Auctioneers and Valuers will be available all day to examine and discuss the objects that people like to bring in for valuation. A charge of 1 will be made on each item. We do want to make this a very successful day as all proceeds will go towards the restoration of the fishing sheds on West Cliff. These sheds are part of Sheringham's Past and will be a great asset to our Town to display various aspects of its History, fishing families and the Upcher families who so generously gave the 2 private Lifeboats to our town. Refreshments will be available all day. Also, Raffle Prizes, Bric-a-Brac, etc.
May Ayers. (President)

Mum's Night Out

80 women enjoyed a night of pleasure at the Southlands Hotel on 23rd April. No Robbie Williams wasn't there, but Jo Meakin and all the girls from The Beauty Box made sure that all the women were pampered from reflexology to Indian head massage, pedicures to yoga. The night raised an amasing 858 for the Ladybird Playgroup. More mum's nights out to be announced.
