THIS photograph, called ‘Foreshore Reflections at Sunset’, was taken by Marion Ridgley and achieved first place in the colour category of the Club’s last themed competition (whose subject was ‘Coast’). The Club have since held their


Annual competition and fish & chip evening, where members enjoyed the comments made by judge Derek Leak on those images that achieved notable positions. First place went to the following people in the following categories: colour portfolio (three associated images) – Holly Stranks; single colour print – Alan Lyall; digital projected image portfolio – Holly Stranks; digital projected image (single photograph) – Richard Roberts; monochrome portfolio – Ray Mason; monochrome single image – Holly Stranks. A new award was given this year for ‘Endeavour and Enthusiasm’ and was presented to Joshua Finch, who joined this year and is the Club’s youngest member. The Club’s AGM is due to be held on December 14th and


is the last meeting before the Christmas break. Details of next year’s programme will appear on the Club’s website: www. bungaycameraclub.co.uk Meetings will resume in January, on the second and


fourth Wednesday of each month at Broome Village Hall (postcode NR35 2RW). Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and prospective members are welcome to attend two meetings free of charge.


Norwich City Supporters


WHAT’S gone wrong, that’s the question all City supporters are asking. Just three weeks ago City were top of the Championship and manager Alex Neal was proudly holding the Manager of the Month trophy. Since then five straight defeats incorporating some horrific defending has meant we are now sixth place and a massive thirteen points from leaders Newcastle. Strange team selections and a lack of substitutions are baffling supporters and the manager is now under serious pressure to turn things around. In our Fantasy Football, Chris


C and Bob are leading the field, Paul’s team selection for “The Taylor Boys” looks seriously flawed, perhaps a massive clear out in January is required. Next update on December 7th at Chinny’s before we all move on to the January meeting for the transfers. Once again our Christmas meal is at Reydon on Sunday 18th, menu choices on the 7th please.


CC CHRISTMAS AT HIGHFIELD


DECEMBER is packed full with activities at Highfield. We start the month with a Thanksgiving Service in the Lounge at Highfield on Tuesday 6th December at 10.30am for the relatives of those residents we have sadly lost during 2016. There will be a warm welcome extended to family and friends who are able to attend the Service to celebrate the lives of their loved ones. On a lighter note, our residents will be enjoying their Christmas Party on Thursday 15th December, starting at 2pm. The afternoon begins with Carol singing by children from Edgar Sewter School. Highfield staff will be dressed in Christmas costumes and there will be plenty of party food and games to entertain the residents. With Christmas music playing in the background adding to the festive atmosphere, it promises to be a very enjoyable afternoon. On Friday 16th December, the musical mood continues with live singing by Gwyn at 2pm. His smooth voice and easy listening


SOUTHWOLD Alfred Corry


WE reverted to winter opening hours on October 31st and, in the words of the song made famous by Frank Sinatra - ‘It was a Very Good Year’. We have enjoyed sunshine, a record number of visitors, a lot of laughter from over 547 children puzzling over our Quiz questions, front page coverage in two newspapers, and an appearance on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on BBC2. Sadly we have said goodbye and thank you, to two of our long serving stewards, but happily welcomed two new ones. Why not join us as a volunteer steward for next summer? If you are interested and would like to know more why not call in one weekend or ring Jonathan Hunt on 01502 676 190 or Frank upcraft on 01502 724 484. Special mention is made this


month of our steward Lynn Nicholls who started knitting poppies in September and raised £87.27 for the annual British Legion Poppy Appeal. Her


Lifeboat Museum


popular, hand made greetings cards, are also now on sale. We also lost a much loved a canine friend recently with the death of ‘Raffa’. He was the companion of our Curator Frank and his wife, and a popular member of the Alfred Corry crew. As this will be the last edition


before Christmas our Chairman has asked me to express his thanks, and those of the Trustees, to our many friends, volunteer stewards, restoration team, and, last but not least, our hard- working Curator, Frank upcraft, for making it such a successful and enjoyable year. Without them all there would not be a Museum. So we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a truly peaceful New Year. Stop press: We have a few


packs of Christmas cards left and will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30am to 3.30pm (weather permitting). We shall also be open on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Hope and Aid Direct - the latest news


THE Kosova convoy duly returned on October 21st after a very successful visit. The most depressing thing was the fact that after nearly twenty years since the end of the Kosovo War there is still a vital need for such aid. If anything it gets worse. Charles is now busy in the


time remaining before Christmas in organising another convoy to Greece which is planned


to depart on January 21st. Hope and Aid Direct takes two convoys a year but in 2016 they took four: three to Greece and one to Kosovo. As this will be the last edition


before Christmas, Margaret and I join with Charles and all his numerous volunteers in wishing all supporters and donors a very Happy Christmas. Margaret and Jack Storer
