Sheringham Community Paper

During a morning in North Walsham on 17th May the Conservative leader in the House of Lords, Lord Strathclyde, promised that a Conservative Government would pull out of the Common Fisheries policy. Visiting North Norfolk to support the Conservatives' Euro-election campaign, and Iain Dale's bid to be North Norfolk's next MP, Strathclyde said:-
"Everyone must vote on June 10th in the European Elections. Liberal Democrats want to join the Euro, surrender British sovereignty to the new European constitution and raise taxes. It's a three-way sell out that will damage our economy, undermine our democracy and put Brussels in charge of Britain. Thousands of jobs will be lost as skilled work is transferred to cheaper countries while the UK imports cheap labour for unskilled jobs. It's a recipe for long term disaster.
Sheringham Community Paper
"Conservatives will never join the Euro. We will pull out of the Common Fisheries Policy and give North Norfolk fishermen the security they deserve. We will not surrender control of our foreign policy, tax, social security and the right to control immigration levels to nelected European politicians.  Conservatives want a free and prosperous Europe, not a tax addicted, over regulated, out of touch bureaucracy that employs thousands and listens to no one."

Lord Strathclyde visited the East Coast Group in North Walsham. The East Coast Group is North Walsham's biggest employer.
Sheringham Evening W.I.
Members and friends recently enjoyed a trip to the Forum in Norwich. We were first told how, following the fire, which had destroyed the previous building, the Millennium Library had been planned, built and financed. We were then able to visit the ‘Origins’ Experience, and could have spent much longer playing on the interactive exhibits! We also had a privilege look behind the scenes of BBC Look East and Radio Norfolk, gaining a much greater appreciation of the work and technology involved in bringing the news into our homes. Special thanks to Julie Reinger, our Look East weather girl, who explained in detail exactly how she prepares for her ‘spot’ on each of the local bulletins.

At our May meeting we discussed the Resolutions on the agenda for the National AGM in June. The topics this year are Trafficking of Women and Children, The growing of GM Crops in the UK, and the Funding of Air Ambulances, and our Link delegate was present to note our views to take with her to Sheffield.

The competition for a Pantomime character made from a polystyrene egg was won by Shirley Pateman for ‘’Dick Whittington’s Cat’. Her entry went on to win the competition at the Group Meeting at Holt the following evening which was judged by our speaker on that occasion, Helen McDermott of Anglia TV, who has also starred in Pantomimes at Sheringham’s Little Theatre.

Our July meeting has again been brought forward by one week. On Thursday 1st July, Mr Peter Higham will give a demonstration and talk on the subject of Woodturning. The meeting starts at 7.30pm at St Andrews Church Hall and we welcome new members and visitors.
