BAND REVIEWS by Tim Jefferson

Roxy 5 is headed by duo: Liz Wolfe and Stacy Collins. Two very good singers ably backed by guitar, bass/vocal and drums. Their first set was a little slow for me but was well played. Their sound is a nice blend of danceable funky rock and had people jumping by the second set. They do just the stuff for functions and are always happy to be contacted for more work (01603 478653). A real star in this group is the guitarist, who plays brilliantly. He constantly changes his sound to suit each number and never hides behind distortion. He is really very good at what he does, which is so vital with this kind of stuff. As I've always said, the heart that beats in this kind of music is the guitar. Here was no exception. A band well worth seeing. They have a good CD and unlike a lot of bands, do some of their own songs which are very good.

At dawn on Monday a snail fell into a bucket that was 12 inches deep. During the day it climbed up 3 inches, however, during the night it fell back 2 inches. On what day did the snail finally manage to climb out of the bucket?

The Council's General Purposes & Development Committee has recently been discussing the future of the seasonal nine-hole Putting Green in Station Approach owned by North Norfolk District Council. It is seen by this Council as a very valuable oasis of green in our Town (now that part of Otterndorf Green has been lost to North Norfolk Railway) and has suggested to NNDC more community/ public use could be made of the area and proposed a change of use. Bazaars, Fetes, Open Air Concerts and Play's, Craft Fairs, a Base for Special Events, an area for townsfolk and visitors alike to rest away from the ''hurly burly'' are just some of the uses this Council feels this good quality open space could be used for all year round.

Dear @ Sheringham, Just to let you know that we did it! The picture shows us with our medals at Blenheim Palace after walking a total of 29 miles on the day. 2000 walkers took part (I don't know how many finished) and the weather was kind to us, cool but mainly dry and perfect for walking - if a little muddy! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the event was well organised, the scenery was beautiful, and we even got through without a single blister! On behalf of Breast Cancer Care we would like to sincerely thank all those friends, family, colleagues and customers who sponsored us and sent us good wishes and encouragement. A special thanks also goes to anonymous sponsors who we can't thank in person. There is still time to sponsor us at as we are a little short of our target of 750 and would love to reach it. Thank you
Miriam and Derek Welch
