    Record Saturday Attendance for Starting Handle Club Summer Show

    The Starting Handle Club, celebrating its 40thanniversary, had mixed weather for their Annual Summer

    Show. A fine day on Saturday saw a record attendance of over a thousand people but this was

    dampened a little on the Sunday when the forecast rain arrived, driving the City of Norwich Pipe Band

    into a barn to complete a well received performance. There were a record number of exhibitors and

    trade stands this year and over 300 people attended a sell-out Hog Roast on the Saturday night and

    were entertained by Farmer Dan and his Showband.

    Because of the poor weather on Sunday receipts from the show are likely to be down on previous

    years. The committee is meeting in September to decide on the charities they will support this year and

    they would like to thank all those who helped or contributed in any way to another successful show, in

    particular Stuart Taylor for his support and the use of his land.

    The committee would also like to apologise to everyone who attended the show with children for the

    no-show of the childrens play attractions.

    As a member of Aylsham Royal British Legion Womens Section ,

    I was delighted to take part in an impromptu ceremony at

    Marsham village war memorial to commemorate 100 years

    since the start of WWI. With the help of the Rev. Fergus and a

    few parishioners a small service was held with each of us taking

    it in turns to read a name from the memorial as we lit a candle

    for each of the 17 men.

    It was all very informal but at the same time very personal to

    each of us because we all took part.

    Yours sincerely,

    Doreen Larkman

    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

    viewspositive and negative.

    Although the following is probably old news now, we are including the following letter, received

    by the Parish Council from the Senior Environment Officer regarding the Compost Facility, sothat everyone knows the current situation -Following the enforcement notice requiring improvement works to be completed by 31 May, I can

    confirm that the operator failed to comply with all the steps in the notice. We assessed the works and

    the subsequent level of odour from the site and concluded that odours were still at unacceptable levels.

    The operator offered a potential solution by ceasing to accept food waste at the site. We accepted this

    proposal and have additionally served an enforcement notice to require the operator to remove all food

    waste currently in the system (i.e. the waste that is currently going through the composting process) by

    24 July 2014. This is no small step, it will take around 3-4 weeks at additional cost to the operator.

    However, considering the distress the site is causing to the local community, we do believe that this is


    As part of the enforcement notice we have also required the operator to carry out a deep clean of the

    site and equipment to ensure no odour is caused from residual food waste. The operator has decided to

    enter a 12 week shut down of the operations on the site in order to carry out the deep clean and to

    continue to make improvements to the sites systems, during this period they will not be processing

    any waste on site. They will be accepting green waste to bulk up on the site for less than 48 hours to

    allow it to be diverted to other waste facilities.

    We hope that when the food waste is removed from the process there will be a dramatic reduction in

    odour nuisance. Should the odour pollution continue at unacceptable levels though, we will consider

    taking further action. This could involve suspending the sites permit meaning they would have to stop

    accepting waste altogether.
