25th Edition July 2014
The deadline for the next edition is Thursday 21st August 2014. Any articles, letters or adverts should
be sent to [email protected] or, if anything needs typing, to Linda and Eric at 3 Cranes Lane.
Great news from the Defibrillator Project on page 8. One of the
possibilities being explored by the group, like many other
villages around the country, is to use the telephone box to
house the defibrillator. With this in mind, they would like to
know whether anyone in the village still uses the phone box. If
you do would you please let Adrian Scargill know by telephone
(734488), e mail ( [email protected] ) or a note
through the door of 12 Old Norwich Road.
As mentioned in an earlier edition of the Newsletter, we are planning a World War One
commemoration issue with emphasis upon the men of Marsham who served in the 1st World War. We
have researched these men but if anyone could supplement that with photos or other information,
that would be great. We are planning that it will be part of our November edition.
A reminder that this is our last edition until September. Could I take this opportunity to thank Linda
and Eric for processing some of the letters and articles that appear each month in the Newsletter and
also our faithful band of volunteers who distribute and deliver it each month. Without them we could
not get it to every home in the village.
We hope that you have a warm and enjoyable summer. Dont forget the Starting
Handle Clubs Annual Summer Show. There are further details in this edition.
Dont forget to let us have details of any up and coming events which we will include on this page.
Send to [email protected] or deliver to 12 Old Norwich Road.

Letters to the Editor
The letters in this section are published unedited and do not necessarily reflect the views of the
editing committee. We see the Village Newsletter as a channel for people in the village to air their
views positive and negative.
It is good to see and read information
and news from a number of
contributors to the Marsham Village
News each month such as: The W.I.,
the Parish Church, the Parish Council,
the School, the
Village Hall and letters to the editor. It
was also good to read news from the
Parish Council recently about the
situation at the Marsham Waste Plant
and I hope that the Chairman's Annual
Report will be published in full in your
Unless one is able to attend the Parish
Council meetings it is very difficult to
find out about the work being done by
the council on our behalf and the
decisions taken. The minutes when
they are put onto the notice board are
already four to five weeks out of date.
We are very fortunate to have such a
well produced and attractive
newsletter supported by local traders
and delivered free to every house in
The Parish Council is at the hub of any
village community and it is vital that
they communicate with all their
parishioners as much as possible. What
better way than using the medium of
the Marsham Village News.
Starting Handle Club Summer Show
We again have many entries for this years show
featuring exhibits from all parts of the country.
Peak Vale Tractor Pullers will be returning and
they are hopeful of increased numbers of
participants for this the most powerful motor
sport on earth. The main parade ring feature this
year will be a Farming Year Display, this will
feature all the activities of the farming year with
vintage machinery, some of which is very rare and
is unique to the Marsham Show, and will not be
seen anywhere else in the UK. On Saturday
evening we will be having a tractor road run
around the local villages, followed by a hog roast
and barbecue and music by Farmer Dan and his
Irish Showband. This will be open to the public at a
cost of 9, it is essential to pre-book for catering
reasons, tickets will be available at the show. On
Sunday we have a special visit by the City Of
Norwich Pipe Band who will be performing a
marching and musical display. Also, of interest to
residents of Marsham, we will be displaying items
made in Marsham. On display will be the Soames
Steam Car and various other items manufactured
at the foundry, if any residents have any
photographs or memorabilia that can be added to
this feature we would be very grateful for any
assistance, contact Bob Parke on 01263 -732267.
Thank you for your support.
Kind regards, Bob Parke.
