@ Sheringham goes Monthly
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 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 possible.

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 Site

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a Happy and Healthy New Year.
