There have been</p><p>a number of cases in recent months where lives</p><p>have been saved by the use of community</p><p>defibrillators. Let us hope that ours never has</p><p>to be used but, just in case..</p><p>This has been a real community project which</p><p>began 2014 searching for funds and now, one</p><p>year later, is about to come to a successful</p><p>conclusion. Congratulations and thanks to</p><p>Nicola Hibberd for leading this initiative.Help</p><p>on how to access the defibrillator will be in the</p><p>next edition.</p><p>Marsham</p><p>Village News30th Edition February 2015</p><p>The deadline for the next edition is Monday 23rd</p><p>February 2015.

The date at</p><p>the time of writing is not yet fixed. The hearing is open</p><p>to all; and all those who have made their views known</p><p>in writing to the planners will receive details of time</p><p>and place. A further 6 week public consultation period</p><p>will follow the public hearing.</p><p>The independent planning inspector (representing the</p><p>Secretary of State), in charge of the 'hearing' is then</p><p>expected to give within the following 12 months a</p><p>detailed written approval to the planning</p><p>policy for Broadland for the period up to 2026.No</p><p>changes are proposed for Marsham. This means no</p><p>change to the village settlement boundaries. Any</p><p>future housing will be only within the existing</p><p>boundaries , and of groups of 1 5 houses maximum</p><p>as infill.</p><p>I think most residents are by now aware that in</p><p>October 2014 an appeal for housing development on</p><p>the Fengate Farm (old chicken houses), site was firmly</p><p>rejected by an independent planning inspector. The</p><p>site is clearly established as 'Greenfield' land.</p><p>Greg Jarvis.</p><p>For SaleTall solid pine bookcase 137cm(h) x78cm(w) x20cm(d)</p><p>4 fixed shelves.

Thank you to the village residentswho attended the defibrillator awareness</p><p>session this evening (19th January) delivered</p><p>by Martin Render from the Community</p><p>Heartbeat Trust.

Despite the increase in the purchasing power of their wages largely due to the abolition of</p><p>the wicked corn laws and a prosperous time for agriculture from 1849</p><p>1872; the working hours had notchanged for a 100 years and labourers were not free to bargain with the arrogant and oppressive</p><p>farmers and the gulf between the two was greater than ever. Many of the sons of labourers left the farms and</p><p>went into the town or emigrated.</p><p>A Primitive Methodist lay-preacher a Mr Joseph Arch was asked to form a Union and 2000 workers from all parts</p><p>of the country attended and a Union was formed. The newspapers gave it prominence with headlines such</p><p>as 'Uprising of the Agricultural Labourer'. Meetings were held in many parts and George attended one of them</p><p>on the childrens playground at Alby, at which he spoke a month before his marriage. A branch of the Union was</p><p>formed and he became a member. Trouble soon arose and labourers were discharged in their hundreds losing</p><p>their cottages and turned out on the road by the farmers determined to crush the movement in its infancy.</p><p>Scores of farmers locked their men out when they refused to give up their Union cards. Despite this within 6</p><p>months 150,000 labourers had joined some sort of Union although these were all independent of each other. A</p><p>national Union was formed in Warwickshire but not all branches joined: Kent, Sussex and Lincoln formed strong</p><p>Unions outside the National and unfortunately there was a lot of rivalry and mischief among the different</p><p>Unions.</p><p>Will Ching</p><p>As several homes in the village have changed hands recently may we welcome new parishioners to Marsham.</p><p>With properties changing hands, we thought it might be a good time to organise a garden/garage sale. Instead of</p><p>having to pack boxes of unwanted items into a car to bring for a table top sale, you could displaythem in your</p><p>driveway at home and we will send potential customers to you. We could have a coffee morning with stalls at</p><p>the village hall for our own funds and for say 50p sell a village map showing where garden/garage sales are being</p><p>held. Springtime is a favourite with plants etc also being available for sale. If you prefer the table top sale idea</p><p>please tell us, so we can arrange that instead for April as well as October.</p><p>Comments to any village hall committee member please - list of names is shown in village hall notice board.</p></li><li><p>8/9/2019 Marsham Village News (30th Edition)</p><p> 8/8</p><p>Free activities for adults</p><p>If you find it hard to make time to get active,</p><p>weve got a good incentive to help get you into</p><p>gear.</p><p>Starting 23rd</p><p>February, Fun &amp; Fit courses are</p><p>coming to venues around Broadland, where</p><p>youll find a wide choice of fun activities to</p><p>choose fromall for FREE.
