Leicestershire people are being invited to join the Chairman of the County Council, David Bill, on a special visit to his hometown of Sheringham, on the North Norfolk Coast.  Sheringham, 'the town by the cliffs', with its mixture of Victorian and Edwardian architecture, 'Blue Flag' beach and famous North Norfolk Railway really is the perfect place for a family holiday.  In many ways it shares great similarities with Leicestershire, including the love people have for the railway and steam trains.   For just over 100 years visitors from Leicestershire have enjoyed the atractions of the North Norfolk coast, a treat made possible by the opening of the old Midland & Great Northern line which lasted for 60 years.

David Bill, Chairman, looks back at his own life in Sheringham and explains what it was like being brought up in the seaside town and the impact the second World War had on his family : "There was loss of life during the second war, one of our family houses was hit resulting in the loss of my great aunt and cousins.  With Dad off to war my mother was living in a house virtually on top of the railway station but after this and other incidents she went inland to her mother's house at Swaffham, where I was born.   My grandfather had arrived with the railway in 1896 and my father turned the key for the last time at the station in 1966.  He had served in the army seeing service in Normandy and in India but apart from this my grandfather and father's careers span the life of the railway.  I was one of a few responsible for ensuring that there still is a railway at Sheringham.

Mr Baskerville, Chairman of Norfolk County Council, said, "I know that there is a long history of Leicestershire residents visiting the beautiful North Norfolk coast and enjoying what it has to offer and I am very much looking forward to welcoming the Leicestershire party to Sheringham."
