Sheringham Community Paper
John Dennis, the outgoing Captain of Sheringham Golf Club, nominated the North Norfolk Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society as his charity for 2003/2004. With the very significant help of Sheringham Ladies’ Captain Pat Beckley and her Ladies, the Retired Golfers section, members, visitors and last but not least his wife Pamela, the magnificent sum of 6,350 was raised for charity, a club record.   Events aimed specifically at raising money varied from raffles, tombolas, putting and chipping competitions, bunker fines, bridge drive, ladies’ charity night, Captain’s ladies night, word puzzles, invitation days, open competitions, fashion show, auctions and an open Captain’s Charity Day golf competition. Even the ubiquitous ‘’loose change’’ charity bottle on the bar raised more than 300 during the year.
Sheringham Community Paper
A cheque was presented to Mrs Ann Poberefsky, Chairman of the North Norfolk Branch of Alzheimer’s Society on Saturday 10th April at Sheringham Golf Club, by the Captain and Ladies’ Captain. The money will be used to help run the North Norfolk Branch who will eventually have an office at the Kelling Hospital site. There are two outreach workers who currently each have caseloads of 30, mostly carers, or carers and Alzheimer’s sufferers. They also hold group sessions for up to 12 at North Walsham and Fakenham and anticipate having group sessions at Sheringham in the near future.  In addition to the 6,350 raised for Alzheimer’s the Ladies section raised 400 for Parkinson’s Disease and the Retired Golfers 750 for the East Anglia Ambulance helicopter and 250 to SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors and Air Force Association) - a grand total of 7,750 in charitable donations.

Patient and Public Involvement Forum to Receive Further Briefing on the Development of Cromer & District Hospital

Patient and Public Involvement Forums (PPI Forums) are new organisations, which are giving members of the public an effective voice about the way their local healthcare is delivered now and will be delivered in the future. The North Norfolk PPI Forum will be holding a meeting in public about Cromer & District Hospital, on Monday 12th July at 6 pm, in Cromer Parish Hall.

At that meeting, David Prior, the Chairman of the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital Trust will be addressing the PPI Forum on progress with the proposed new development of Cromer and District Hospital.

This meeting follows on from the interesting address already given to the Forum by Diana Clarke, Chief Executive of North Norfolk Primary Care Trust which was attended by only a small number of members of the public, but produced some robust questioning. At the meeting on 12th July Forum members will again ask questions on behalf of the patients and public of North Norfolk. There will also be an opportunity for members of the public to put their questions at the end of the meeting.

This meeting is being held in the evening in order to encourage members of the public to attend to hear what the Trust is planning for their local hospital. Questions may be asked at the meeting or alternatively raised through the Forum in advance. Please contact Julie Colebrook, the North Norfolk PPI Forum Facilitator on 01603 774324 or e-mail
