A date for your diary – Tuesday 22 March at 7.30pm – is when the Annual Town Meeting takes place – the venue will be the Community Centre, Cromer Road. This meeting is a public meeting, organised by the Town Council to enable it to report its work, over the previous year, to the Community. It is an opportunity for you to meet your Town Councillors, District Councillors and County Councillor. Everyone is welcome to attend.

You may have noticed small wooden posts have been installed on the eastern side of the Back Common, north and south of the railway line, and wondered why this was necessary. Last summer a band of travellers moved onto the Back Common causing much consternation to nearby residents. Luckily this time, after being spoken to, the travellers moved off after a few days. This was not the case a few years ago when the Town Council had to take legal action to remove travellers from the Top Common. Therefore, following approaches from residents requesting the Town Council to take preventative measures, and taking into account the most cost effective way of dealing with the issue, it arranged for the wooden posts to be installed.

Another concern to residents, in the same area of the town, is the condition of the stream which runs across the Back Common, down beside the Back Loke (to the rear of Priory Road), under the road and coming out again at The Avenue – this stream is owned by Anglian Water. Over the last few years the Town Council has had an arrangement with Anglian Water to clear the stream of weed growth twice a year, however, after a recent meeting with them Anglian Water has decided it will now be carrying out its own maintenance. In a bid to help with flooding problems, after heavy rain particularly, Anglian Water hopes to regrade the bed of the stream.

Therefore, in future if flooding or other problems arise regarding this stream please contact Anglian Water direct and not the Town Council.  It would also be particularly helpful, for the appearance of the Back Loke and stream, if those responsible would restrain themselves from dumping garden rubbish onto the bank of the stream, which then falls into the stream and could cause a blockage under the road – it also makes the Back Loke look very untidy and uncared for – please dispose of your garden rubbish responsibly.

'Quality as well as Quantity' is the headline this month.  Our meeting comes right in the middle of the month, on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH to be more precise.  And the Quality comes under the name of ROD RAWLINGS. Anyone who has seen and heard local Rod before, will know what a treat we are in for on this evening. A new show is promised, and Rod has expanded his normal wide range of Wildlife Photography, to include Sports Photography, and he is already receiving awards in that respect. Another area of interest being developed by Bob are candid pictures of People, in a wide range of activities. Add to all this, a well informed and humorous narrative delivered in a Norfolk dialogue, and you get some idea of the flavour of the evening. My advice is, don't miss it!  Holt Community Centre Lounge Room is the venue as usual, at 7.00 for 7.30 p.m.

This is an open evening, and visitors are most welcome.   To make up for the news shortage, I notice that we have three meetings in March, also I will be able to report the result of the 'Best All Rounder' competition, held on the 1st February. Another reminder to members, please bring prints and slides on the Rod Rawlings evening for the Buxton Battle. See your programme for details. 

The only other item to report is that, following the introduction of Broadband. there is a change of my email address. It's a long boring story, but I can now be reached at; I Look forward to hearing from you, if only to prove that all is now working!
