|As we have said in previous editions, this community paper is a
non-profit making concern, which thanks to the continued support of local businesses has
flourished, to such an extent that it has now become a full-time job. We also run several
community and charity web sites free of charge as our contribution to the town.
Our business, Norfolka2z, a Web Design company is rapidly expanding and as you will all
appreciate, this has first call on our time. Over the last few months we have been
inundated with orders for Web Sites and it is very important that we maintain the
standards for which we have become known.
Sadly, since we began, we have lost many of our initial volunteers for a variety of
reasons including ill health and end of work experience. This has resulted in Deborah and
myself having to spend an increasing amount of time on the paper. The trial run of the
monthly edition proved to us many things, the most important being that the readers
responses, competition entries and local news stories quadrupled! We believe that by
becoming a monthly publication we will be able to dedicate the time needed to covering
local events and retain the quality, which is very important.
The format of the paper will be retained and as before advertising will be kept to a
minimum. We are hoping that by going monthly we will be able to increase the size of the
paper and therefore be able to include more articles.
Please keep your letters, questions and articles coming in. We want to know when your
events are happening so that we can come along and support you all. Our subscription list
is growing by the month and we now send all over the country. The entire paper will
continue to go on-line www.at-sheringham.co.uk and we know this site has readers all over
the world, from Canada to New Zealand. A lot of ex-Sheringham people read the on-line
version and we want to make sure that we keep them up-to-date with all that is happening
in their 'Old Town'. We especially want to hear about your memories, with photographs if
Carnival time will be with us again before we know it, so start planning your floats and
costumes now and let's make 2004 a Carnival to remember. In the meantime, let us have
stories about your past Carnivals, for both the paper and/or the Official Carnival Web
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a Happy and Healthy New
