My Grandparents used to own what was then named the Sheringham Hotel. I have an old photograph of the hotel, probably dated between 1920 and 1940. The hotel was a vast red brick building with tennis courts, a putting lawn and possibly a nine hole golf course. The address on the photograph does not include any road names.  I am interested to know whether it is still in existence. My grandparents names were Herbert and Florence Myers. I believe that the hotel was taken over as a military hospital during the war. We are unsure as to what happened after the war, as my grandfather passed away intestate.  If you have any information about the history of the hotel, I would be very interested.  Kind Regards, Mrs Frances Lewis, Exmouth, Devon

Above are the team of builders and workmen who worked on the rebuilding of The Crown Inn, way back in 1937.  Do you know any of the people on the photograph?  Are they relatives, or indeed are YOU on the photo.   We would love to hear from you, both for the Paper and to put on the Crown's web site, history page.
The SHERINGHAM SHANTYMEN have just enjoyed another magnificent year of concerts and as a result have once again been instrumental in raising several thousand pounds for local and national causes.  At the Annual general Meeting the following were among those chosen to benefit from the money raised: St John Ambulance; Big C; Canaan Centre; Mundesley Lifeboat and Sheringham based 'Break'. This is in addition to the annual donations sent to the RNLI.  Two new committee members were elected: Graham Kemp - a member for eleven years is to be Chairman while all bookings will be handled by a new booking secretary: Matthew Sharpe who can be contacted on 01263 822206.   Forty concerts were performed during 2003 plus a five day visit to raise funds for the Irish Lifeboats.
Sheringham Community Paper During 2003 the group produced their 5th CD, the sales of which are solely for the benefit of the RNLI. The Shantymen have been informed that the sales of this latest CD are 6th in the list of over 30 produced for the RNLI, the members are delighted to find themselves in the 'TOP TEN'.
