|QUILLING, OR PAPER FILIGREE
|Tues 1st March- Sheringham
Library- all day on display for 2 weeks.
||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

LINE DEVELOPMENTS AT SHERINGHAM
|Although recent attention has been focused on
the Poppy Lines 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 dont 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.
