LOCAL MP CALLS ON SCHOOLS TO JOIN GIVING NATION AND WIN 1000 AND AN OVERSEAS TRIP

Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk, is calling on the secondary schools in his constituency to take part in the first ever G-Week, and win one of 12 awards of 1000. In addition, one overall winning school will get the chance to send a group of pupils on an all-expenses paid overseas trip to see a British Red Cross charity project in action. Mr Lamb said "Our secondary school pupils already do a great deal to support good cawses by volunteering their time and putting their efforts into fundraising. Giving Nation is a chance to celebrate their efforts and build on it for the future. It would be good to see local schools involved". Giving Nation has been developed by The Giving Campaign - a partnership between charities and government to develop a stronger culture of giving in the UK. It has been designed to support the citizenship curriculum for 11-16 year olds and is endorsed by the Department for Education and Skills. It aims to help young people understand the power of giving, and the importance of charities in shaping a fair and inclusive world. It promotes initiative, participation and choice - giving young people the tools they need to tackle the issues they care about. Schools can order their free Giving Nation pack and find out how they can be involved by calling 020 7401 4000 or going to www.g-nation.co.uk

Sheringham Carnival Committee Joins forces with Jewsons to help Skateboard Park Repairs.  Following an appeal for funds to the Carnival Committee by Paul Starling, Sheringham Skateboard Park Secretary, it was agreed to discuss the matter at the next Carnival Committee meeting. In the meantime a Carnival Committee member visited the park and realised that a considerable amount of work was needed to bring the jumps up to the standard required for insurance cover and then contacted Bob Wilson, Manager of Jewsons, Cromer, to see if the company could perhaps help in some way with the cost of repairs to the Skateboard Park. The outcome was that Bob offered a substantial discount off their best plywood to replenish the entire park and said that they would throw in, free of charge, paint and screws. For their part, the Carnival Committee, at their meeting unanimously agreed to support the Skateboard Park and presented Paul with a cheque to enable them to commence the most urgent repairs immediately. It is hoped that more donations and help to fit the plywood sheets from skateboarders and their parents would enable the Skateboard Park to be made safe and fully operational as soon as possible.

Paul expressed his sincere thanks to the Carnival Committee and to Bob Wilson of Jewsons for their generous support. A professional Skateboard team are booked to give a demonstration of skateboard skills on the last day of the Carnival 10th August at 2pm. Local skateboarders will be able to use the facilities after the demonstration. If you can help with donations or assist in replacing the boards, please phone Paul Starling on 01263 822368
