SUMMER HOLIDAYS HAVE ARRIVED IT MAKES YOU FEEL ALIVE!!
Summer Holidays have arrived! Although many of us don’t have the money for exotic holidays in the sun, there is still plenty of interesting and relaxing beaches in Norfolk to visit. We are lucky enough in Norwich to live within 20 miles of loads of lovely unspoilt beaches. There are buses and trains which will get you to any destination within an hour. You can get family and saver tickets so its pretty cheap and really cheerful.
Is a pretty and friendly seaside town with a pebbled beach. As you come into Sheringham you will find Pretty Corner, a Breckland wooded area. Take a walk along the cliffs, visit the boating lake up the north end or check out a wide variety of shops and a small amusements to entertain.
Next stop along the coast is Cromer. Famous for crabs and the Pier's summer performances. Maybe the best fish and chips in Norfolk! Bit more of a sandy beach and a chance to explore the Rock pools when the tide is out.
A Quiet small beach and village. The beach is unspoilt and peaceful. There is a bit of a steep walk down to the beach so is not so accessible to wheelchairs.
Next along is Walcott, which is accessible as the beach is beside the road. This beach is sandy and tranquil (see picture). There is a great cafe and pub for refreshments.
You can follow the coast road with caution, all along our beautiful coast, with many small secluded beaches, until you get to...
A classic Victorian Seaside town. Famous for funfairs, amusements, candy floss, the golden mile, bingo, donkey and horse and cart rides.
Artwork produced by our members is being displayed at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital throughout August, September and October on Level 2 of the main hospital street.

FAIR WEATHER LEARNING AND PERFORMANCE PROJECT
Singer/Songwriter from the broadlands and flatlands of East Anglia. Alt-country-folk-rock-indie-Americana. Only British. His debut album has just been released "Hi Fi Solo". He is a musician with something to say. His song writing and vocal talents have a unique flavour of their own but with a lightness of touch sounding like a Norwich Richard Ashcroft.”
Kevin “KC” Chilvers, Watton Radio
Our very own Under 1 Roof band, The Undies. A mix of folk, rap and punk. A little bit of everything. We have been practicing every Tuesday since last year and have 4 original songs and 3 covers for your enjoyment.
