If so, contact Maxine on 01263 649114). </p><p>Walter John Clutterbuck </p><p>Having seen a couple of photographs published in the EDP recently I was prompted to look on-line for more information. The final photo of the series was entitled Our Marsham Forge taken by Walter John Clutterbuck (1853-1937) of Marsham Hall in 1922, and part of the Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre which unfortunately closed in February. </p><p>I quote: Walter Clutterbuck came from a wealthy Wiltshire family but spent much of his life (when not travelling) in Norfolk, first at Northrepps Cottage, then Marsham Hall. As a young man he was a supervisor in a Ceylon tea plantation for a time but ultimately had no need to work. His main passions seem to have been travel and photography and which he successfully combined. He published four travel books and at the age of 39 married an artist Violet Smith who had connections locally. Walter Clutterbuck was an accomplished photographer </p><p>The Norfolk Heritage Centre holds the main body of his photographic work: 35 albums and 48 exhibition prints. The albums are a record of home life and travels including visits to Norway, Brittany, Tenerife, St Tropez, Japan, Dalmatia, Belgium and India. </p><p>He exhibited his photographs at the Royal Photographic Society in 1911. Some of his photographs can be viewed on the Norfolk Heritage Centre web site. </p><p>I couldnt find out much about Violet, but she seems to have been a successful artist. Was she the Mrs Clutterbuck who was founding member in 1919 and for many years President of Marsham WI, I wonder? Perhaps there are still Marsham residents who already knew about this Marsham couple and their work. </p><p>Dorothy McCall </p><p>Dorothy, I have included two paintings by Violet Clutterbuck.

As reported in the EDP this meeting was attended by more than 700 people from 150 institutes </p><p>around the county. Speakers included Greg Smith, the Chief executive of the Royal Norfolk Agricultural </p><p>Association, and Katie Soden of Priscilla Bacon Lodge. </p><p> The speaker for our March meeting here in the village hall was Neil Storey, who came to talk to us about </p><p>The Great War and we were joined by a few of our partners and some visitors from The British Legion. </p><p>Neil showed slides of young Norfolk men in uniform preparing to go off to serve their country. The three </p><p>sons of the 3rd</p><p> Earl of Leicester went as well as all the male staff from the Holkham Estate, and the Countess </p><p>of Leicester became involved with the work of Red Cross nurses. Regiments were formed by many Norfolk </p><p>Estates and employers such as Colonel Barclay at Hanworth, the Sandringham Estate and Colmans of Norwich to mention just a few. </p><p>Our competition for March was to bring along a medal or badge of any sort, and we had quite a nice </p><p>selection. Our Group meeting this year is to be held at Reepham Town Hall on 9th</p><p> May and the speaker on </p><p>this occasion is an anaesthetist from the Norfolk &amp; Norwich University Hospital with a talk entitled Its a Gas that promises to be amusing! The next craft project will be an entry for the Royal Norfolk Show, the theme being Norfolk in a Basket and hopefully we can come up with some good ideas for that. </p><p>Our May meeting is on 28th</p><p> when we will be reading through the Resolutions and deciding which one </p><p>Marsham will vote for at the WI National Annual Meeting in June. New or returning members are very </p><p>welcome to come along and join our meetings, transport need not be a problem as we could arrange for you </p><p>to be picked up if you need to be call me on 01263 732606 or email at Meetings are usually held on the 4</p><p>th Wednesday of the month in the Village Hall at 7.30pm. </p><p> Dorothy McCall </p><p>Marsham Community Public Access Defibrillator Project </p><p>Thank you to Eric Pooley Builders for their generous donation this month and our thanks also to the </p><p>Ladies British Legion for the donation from their recent quiz night held in Marsham.
