SHERINGHAM & CROMER ROUND TABLE
Sheringham & Cromer Round Table said farewell to Ian Tharby with a
Viking themed evening held at the Lobster PH in Sheringham. Round Table rules state
that once you reach the age of 45 you must leave the organisation, however members felt
his departure should not pass without a celebration.
Ian joined Round Table in December 1993 after moving to the area from London to set up his
Physiotherapy business Cromer Physiotherapy. He is the only member in the clubs 59
year history to hold the post of chairman twice the first time within two years of
joining. He was always very active in all aspects of Round Table but particularly
enjoyed Sheringham & Cromer international links. He visited all four twin Tables
in France, Holland Germany and Sweden through the annual Euro-weekends. Four Swedish
Tablers from Flen much to Ian's surprise made to the trip across to his farewell evening
and for that reason the Viking theme was chosen.
The evening started off with Ian been paraded around the streets of Sheringham in a mock
Viking long boat. After the meal Ian was reminded of some of his past achievements
and much to the amusement of those attending his occasional slip ups during his Round
Table career. These were demonstrated in sketches performed by Round Tablers,
members of Ladies Circle which included his wife Janey and 41 Club which used the occasion
to test his ability to become one of there members.
Ian reflected on the evening that 12 years of Tabling was a life changing experience which
helped him to settle into the area, where he is now very content, and enabled him to put
something back into the local community.
Ian went on to say through Round Table he has made life long friends, travelled Europe and
participated in activities he would not had any chance of doing if he had not joined.
He stated joining Table is easily one of the best decisions he has ever made, he
urged any prospective members to do themselves and big favour and join. Addressing
existing members he encouraged them to make the most of there time is this great
Ian still retains links with Round Table, as he is the honourary Area President supporting
Area Chairman and Sheringham & Cromer Tabler Malcolm Fisher in his role.
