EAST COAST WARRIORS FUND RAISING SUCCESSES
The East Coast Warriors Holland tour fund was boosted by the Grand Raffle
and another sponsored walk. The sponsored walk was aimed mainly at the boys and
their families who didn't take part in the previous walk last September. Although
the number taking part was well short of the previous number and the weather was a lot
colder, the boys still managed to raise a further £267.50.
The Grand Raffle was drawn by our local police sergeant, Tony Toynton, accompanied by PCs
Kim Love and Andrew Dixon. There was great excitement after the draw as when Tony and
Andrew had a kick-about with the boys followed by a hitting the crossbar competition, in
which they failed dismally. Still, everyone enjoyed themselves, especially when it
was announced that the clear profit from the draw was £815.00, a massive boost to our
fund raising. The draw took place on March 21, one week late, due to the printers
having to reprint the draw tickets.
The winners were: 1st prize, Tina Allen of Sheringham, with ticket number 2695, winning
the signed and framed Norwich promotion year shirt; 2nd prize, David Russell from Norwich,
with ticket number 53,who won a car service at C&R Motors; 3rd prize, a new 14in.
teletext television went to Tracy and Mark with ticket number 1964; 4th prize went to
Michelle Alard, also a local with ticket number 458, winning a free MOT for her car, at
Coastal Motors. She had already booked her car into Coastal for two days later, so
she was able to use it right away. 5th prize went to Stuart Butcher, from Norwich, a
framed programme from the Norwich v Manchester United match at Carrow Road which Norwich
City won 2-0 and all the pen pictures of the Manchester United players signed. There
were some great signatures, such as Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholls and Ryan Giggs, won with
ticket number 364. The 6th and final prize went to Mr Pigney, a teacher at
Sheringham School, who won with almost the last ticket sold, an Alex Notman programme,
signed by all the Norwich City players, with ticket number 2701.
Thanks have to go to the numerous shops, market stalls, clubs and public houses in the
town for supporting and helping to sell tickets. Thanks must also go to everyone who
sold tickets and everyone who bought them.
The two events raising just under £1100; a great achievement.
Sheringham and District players did well in both sections of the Antingham
Backgammon Circle's March tournament. The cubeless Round-Robin was won by Gerald Knights
(Cromer) in devastating form, losing only to Barry Suttle (North Walsham) who won second
prize, two points behind on tie-break. Dorothy Lytton (Sheringham) lost out on the
tie-break but won the Handicap prize with 8.28 points. The Cubists contested a Knock-Out,
matches to 5 points, time limit 40 minutes. Ivan Vorlicek (Aylsham), last year's winner,
and Gerry Enslin (Sheringham), now a veteran of the British Isles Backgammon Association
(BIBA), were seeded to meet in the final, but Ivan was downed in the first round by
Manette Baillie (Saxmundham) while at 4-3 up in his semi-final. Gerry was unlucky to lose
a gammon and the match to Cedric Lytton (Sheringham), who went on to win the final 5-2
against Tony Baillie (Aldborough). Harry Bruford (Bodham) was also unlucky to lose the
Consolation final to Brian Metcalf (Aldborough). The season will restart on Sunday 3rd
September at Antingham Village Hall, assemble 9.45 for 10am, entry £1.30, including
coffee and biscuits. Further information from Cedric Lytton on 01263 824157.
Between 1954 and 1955, my mum and I lived in Sheringham at a place called
Vale Lodge. I believe it was a Catholic convent. We left the U.K. in 1955 and
currently live in Canada. I was a baby at the time, and have never had the
opportunity to return to the U.K. Recently my mum's cancer returned, this time with
no good outlook. We are therefore undertaking a small "visiting the past"
trip in May of this year.
Would you be able to give me any information about this? I believe it was located on
Cromer Road. I can be reached at email@example.com
Thank you very much.
