Marsham Village News (25th Edition)

Jul 22, 2016



The 25th edition of the re-launched Marsham Village News.

  • Marsham

    Village News

    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

    next issue.

    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.

    Yours sincerely

    Will Ching

    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.
