Dear Editor.
Another Sunday morning in lovely Sheringham, taking my dogs for their usual walk and I would just like to say I am one of the responsible dog owners that clean up after my dogs. NO WAIT – my front gate has disappeared. GONE in the middle of the night. Was it a hard up person that could not afford a gate of their own and if this is the case I hope they can give it a good home. OR was it one of the local young loud yobs that drink themselves stupid at the weekend on cider and lager, I know, because they leave the evidence all along Holway Road, was it for a bet or was it just for a laugh. ‘’Stealing’’ a gate is not too big of a crime, BUT what if my dogs as they sometimes do bolt out onto the footpath and with no gate to stop them could so easily run out onto the road and, well I hate to imagine the consequences. PLEASE bring back my gate whoever you are. No one saw you take it, so no one will see you put it back.
Name Witheld.
Sheringham Community Paper Bure Valley Railway Walk
Macmillan Cancer Relief Bure Valley Railway Walk raises thousands for local cancer services.

The Macmillan Cancer Relief Bure Valley Railway Walk recently took place on Sunday 4th April 2004, when 300 local people walked 9 miles to raise money for local cancer services. Although not all the sponsorship money is received as yet, the walk looks to have raised a tremendous 14,000 for Macmillan Cancer Relief in Norfolk.  Anglia TV’s weather presenter Becky Mantin officially started the walk at 9am and made sure everyone began their walk with a spring in their step! Macmillan asked all walkers to raise as much sponsorship as they could to walk the 9 miles of beautiful pathway alongside the Bure Valley Railway, from Wroxham to Aylsham.  Once the walkers reached Aylsham, they were provided with free refreshments from the Bure Valley Railway. Local businesses were in fact extremely supportive of the event, with The Broads Hotel in Wroxham offering all walkers a free full English breakfast before they walked and Robinsons donating free drinks for walkers.
After their exertions, walkers were able to relax while they were transported back to Wroxham on one of the Bure Valley Railways narrow gauge trains for free.  Macmillan Cancer Relief Community Fundraiser, Jess Wright said ‘we are delighted that the Bure Valley Railway Walk has been such a success this year and that everyone enjoyed themselves so much on the day. Many thanks must go to The Bure Valley Railway for all of their help and support of course to our fantastic walkers who despite the threat of blisters and aching limbs had a great day out!’  If you would like more information on Macmillan in Norfolk, please call the fundraising office on 01603 626433.

My daughter was helping me bake a cake. We were about to put the icing on it the phone rang. I went to answer the phone and when I returned she had already started to put icing on the cake.

She had reached into the freezer to get a piece of ice. I ask what she was doing and she said "I am icing the cake mommy!"
