QUILLING, OR PAPER FILIGREE
Tues 1st March- Sheringham Library- all day – on display for 2 weeks.
quilers.GIF (16124 bytes) QUILLING, OR PAPER FILIGREE is the historic art of rolling narrow strips of paper into coils, then squeezing and forming into shapes. These shapes are assembled, built up into designs then used to make cards, pictures, jewellery, form free standing pieces and to decorate and embellish items.
A delightful example of the art of paper quilling is currently exhibited at North Norfolk District Council Offices. This piece was worked by 6 dedicated ladies who formed themselves into a group calling themselves ‘Cromer Seaside Quillers.’ They are all members of the Quilling Guild, which is an international organisation with members in countries around the world, but founded in Great Britain to rediscover and promote this historic craft.   Displays, demonstrations & workshops are planned in the North Norfolk area and around the County, so why not come along, see what we do and try your hand at this absorbing craft?

POPPY LINE DEVELOPMENTS AT SHERINGHAM
Although recent attention has been focused on the Poppy Line’s new station complex at Holt, and on the restoration of the Victorian rural station at Weybourne, there is also a major development under way at Sheringham.   The railway has, with the support of Sheringham Town Council, acquired part of Ottendorf Green. This will be used to extend the engine “run round” so that longer trains can be operated to meet peak holiday season demand: currently trains cannot use the whole length of the station platform. The extension into Ottendorf Green, to a point roughly halfway between the Tourist Information Centre and Station Road, will be used only by engines “running round” to get in position for the journey to Weybourne and Holt.  For safety reasons, the new “run round” will be fenced in traditional Midland & Great Northern Railway style, but the rest of the Green will be unfenced and open to everyone as now.  Finally, a reminder that ‘Green Arrow’, the mainline flagship locomotive on loan from the National Railway Museum, will leave the Poppy Line in early March. It will be hauling trains on most weekends until then, and will be working over the February half-term. This will pretty certainly be its last visit to Norfolk before its permanent retirement, so don’t miss out! Come and look (admission to Sheringham Station is free), or better still, come and ride; an all-day Rover ticket is just 8.50 adult, 5 child, and 25 for a family ticket that cover 2 adults and two children, or three adults and 1 child. Dogs and cycles go for 1 each.   And just to close with the reminder that the Poppy Line is always seeking volunteers in a variety of areas. No previous experience is necessary as full training will be given. Contact Wayne at Sheringham Station (01263-820800) for more details.
Despite rumours flying around at the moment, we can quite catagorically say that Dawn Fresh is NOT closing. This is fantastic news for us all. Long may they stay.
