I've not had the chance to cover ‘The Shantymen’ before, so it was with great interest that I went to see both them and ‘Red Oktober’ at St. Peter's Church. The place was packed to the seams. They ran out of seats long before the event started. Their sound is of course sea-faring but also strident, tight, fully ranging in dynamics, moving and humorous. I particularly enjoyed a song written for the event by Terry Read called ‘Make the Difference’ which took an ovation, as well as a gentle song called ‘Blue Nose’, a celebration of a famous boat's life. They did a fine job and I enjoyed their sound.  Red Oktober I've covered before and as usual produce an intimate, textured and professional sound. As with The Shantymen, their C.D. is well worth getting.  This event raised a staggering 5,151. Truly amazing and an event this community should be proud of. I'm so glad I didn't miss it. Well done to all those there. I had two lovely cups of coffee, so it's thanks to the army of helpers in this department for making this event such a success. An event to be proud of.  Tim Jefferson

Red Oktober and The Sheringham Shantymen entertained an audience in excess of five hundred people from as far a field as Sheffield, Coventry and Lowestoft, as well as local Sheringham, Holt and Cromer supporters.  Maggie Secker from BBC Radio was there to give support and ‘rattle’ a bucket and the organisers had great support from St Peters Church and local traders, especially ‘The Lobster’ and Bertram Watts. This was the first time that these two Sheringham groups had shared a venue and the result led to one of the largest turnouts that the town could remember.  If there is anyone out there planning a similar event and wants help then they can call Tony Randall of Red Oktober on 01263-823665 who says, “If we can make it – then we will be there”.  Tony Randall

Seven members of Lloyd’s Pharmacy with partners and family (12 in all ) from Sheringham organised a sponsored walk, which took place on Sunday 9th January. Thank you all who sponsored us and took part. We raised 631.00 for the Tsunami Earthquake Appeal.

Iain Dale secured free transport for two container loads of blankets and clothing collected by the people of Sheringham to the Badeh Aceh region of Indonesia. The goods will be distributed to the hardest hit areas by the Indonesian Ministry of Welfare.
