Potties Back
Sheringham Community Paper Visitors to Sheringham over the Bank Holiday Weekend were treated to a Great Norfolk Tradition by The Lobster Potties Morris Group.
Giving their first performance of the summer the Potties were lively and entertaining, showing few signs of rust from their winter break. They danced Two Sets in the Lobster Garden, led by their Jovial Squire Clive Rayment.

Paston highfliers cut aircraft tyre wear
It’s many a young persons’ dream to work on a front line fighter aircraft, like the Jaguar. Four students at Paston College have been doing just that this year as part of their A level programme at the College. The Engineering Education Scheme is a national initiative to encourage high-flying Maths and Science students to consider a career in engineering. The four, Ian Beeden, Tom Limb, Mathew Nicholson, and Kunsang Vincentz, were set a real life challenge by engineers at RAF Coltishall. They were asked to come up with ideas on how to reduce tyre wear on the Jaguar aircraft. After six months work, the team presented their solution at the EES Assessment Day held at RAF Whatisham – home of the RAF Search and Rescue B Flight 22 Squadron - on April 21st. During the day the students first explained their solution to a panel of engineers and then to a large audience of students, parents, teachers and engineers from all over East Anglia. Their work was commended by RAF “top brass” in the person of Squadron Leader Tony Edge (April 21st). In reviewing the work of the 15 teams Regional EES Director, Rob Brown, said “once again, our students are demonstrating that they really are the best”. As well as working at Paston College and at RAF Coltishall, the four students spent a week in January in the Engineering Department at Leicester’s De Montfort University.

“This is the sort of thing that students are able to achieve at Paston.” said Principal Peter Mayne. “As a specialist sixth form college, we are able to encourage students to extend their A level work though involvement in projects and competitions like this. It is the fifth year that Paston has worked in partnership with RAF Coltishall in the EES. I am very grateful for their support. I am also delighted with the outcome and proud of all those who have taken part.”

Moving House
It’s that time of the year when many of us decide to sell up and move house. Having recently made this decision I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to all who helped my family and I through the trauma!   Goodbye to our old neighbours, we will miss you and good luck to the new residents. If you enjoy living there as much as we did, then you're in for some special times ahead.   Special thanks go to Natalie Page in Watsons, who was able to treat me to a beaming smile every time I walked in even though she must have thought I was some kind of Witch from Hades. But beware Natalie, when we move again – I’ll be back!  Thanks too to Winters Removals, an excellent service which made the move so much easier on the nerves.
