If you</p><p>remember we were trying to find out how many people would be happy to read their copy of the</p><p>newsletter online, rather than receiving a paper copy. As we secured continued funding for the</p><p>newsletter we dont need to take it any further for the moment but it is undoubtedly something we</p><p>will consider in the future.</p><p>Part of the survey had asked people for ways in which we could improve the newsletter and it would</p><p>be interesting to hear other peoples views. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the</p><p>Newsletter please let us know, either by e mail ( ), telephone (734488) orby delivering to 12 Old Norwich Road.

We see the Village Newsletter as a channel for people in the village to air their</p><p>viewspositive and negative.</p><p>Marsham Parish Council News</p><p>The last meeting of the Parish Council took place on Monday 9thNovember, where it was revealed</p><p>that the Summer Show had raised 6000 to be given to various charities such as the East Anglian Air</p><p>Ambulance, Holding Hands with Courageous Children, Marsham Parish Church, and Buxton Scouts</p><p>amongst others. It was recognised by the Parish Council and others present that this was a fantastic</p><p>achievement.</p><p>Maintenance around the village had been completed such as trees trimmed on the A140 to allow</p><p>easier exit from Fengate, reflective posts have been put into the grass triangle at the top of the High</p><p>Street and rubbish had been cleared from various places around the village where it had been</p><p>dumped. It was reported that there had been increase around the Village of dog fouling. Parishionerswere asked to consider others in the Village and to make sure that dog mess was cleared and put in</p><p>the appropriate bins. The Council do have the power to prosecute if the offenders are caught. Thanks</p><p>to everyone for their cooperation.</p><p>The County Councillor reported that there had been an extraordinary Council meeting to agree the</p><p>funding for the Northern Distributor Route, and the budget savings proposals had been released for</p><p>public consultation.

The tower now needs our help. And so</p><p>"Upwards for Marsham" is our name for the cooperation of</p><p>the church, school and village to help strengthen both local</p><p>spirits and ancient structures, very much including the</p><p>church tower which badly needs attention.</p><p>The work to repair the tower and porch will cost in the</p><p>region of 320,000. We have just applied for a Heritage</p><p>Lottery Grant which could bring up to 250,000. As part of</p><p>the work we also hope to install a water supply to the</p><p>Church. At the moment water has to be carried to the Church in lots of containers- not aneasy task for the Church Wardens. Once this is installed we can then explore the possibility</p><p>of a permanent disabled toilet in the Church-currently we only have a portable toilet - and</p><p>also installing a new kitchen so that the Church can be become a venue for many more</p><p>community events.</p><p>In due course we will be asking people about what sort of fundraising may help - but</p><p>meanwhile we are looking at the possibility of doing more together in enjoying our church</p><p>for wider village events - such as possible...</p><p>* Easter Craft FayreEaster Monday</p><p>* Summer music concert* Talent show</p><p>* Flower festival</p><p>* Quiz</p><p>More information around the village from Jean George, Brenda Warman, Nicola Hibberd or</p><p>Ray Bourn or phone Revd Fergus on 01603 279 630.</p><p>We would appreciate your ideas and/or your comments on the ones above.</p><p>Prayers and best</p><p>Revd Fergus</p><p>An update on the Starting Handle Club Summer Show Following a committee meeting of the Starting Handle Club it has been decided to donate the</p><p>following amounts to local charities and organisations </p><p>East Anglian Air Ambulance 2500</p><p>Holding Hands with Courageous Children 1500</p><p>Buxton Sea Scouts 500</p><p>Stroke Club, Beccles 300</p><p>Marsham Parish Church 300</p><p>Marsham Primary School 300</p><p>Marsham Pre-school Tots 300MACAW Club 300</p><p>Total of 6000</p><p>Cheques will be presented at the Starting Handle Club meeting at Bawburgh Village on the 2nd of</p><p>December at 7. 30.

Rachel arrived in costume dressed as</p><p>famous Marie Lloyd, Queen of the Music Halls in late Victorian and early Edwardian</p><p>times. She told us about Maries life on and off the stage and sang some of her well</p><p>known songsThe Boy I Love is up in the Gallery, Oh! Mr Porter, A Little of</p><p>What You Fancy and the like.
