Well, here we are in November. Quite a reflective month don't you think? Apart from
Armistice Day, which of course is a day of reflection and gratitude for all those who
suffered for our freedom, there is this feeling of looking back over the year and
things quietening down before the mad rush and excitement of Christmas.
The gardening tools and sandals are put away and the knitting needles and Scrabble
board dug out as we once again embrace the season of Mist and mellow fruitfulness.
(Does anyone know the second line of the poem? I think I know the words, but not
necessarily in the right order!) Enjoy this calm it won't last. Gina

GRIMSTON MEDICAL CENTRE
Diarrhoea and vomiting are often caused by viruses. Vomiting usually
settles within 24 - 48 hours, and diarrhoea may persist for a few days
after the vomiting has settled. Provided that the patient is able to drink
to replace the fluid lost in diarrhoea/vomit, there is usually no need to
seek medical attention.
Try to ensure a normal fluid intake by drinking plenty. If you are
vomiting, drink small amounts frequently. There is no need to starve.
In babies, milk feeds may be stopped for up to 24 hours, but should
then be restarted at full strength. Breast feeding should continue.
When to see the doctor
If a child who is ill refuses to drink
If diarrhoea persists for more than one week
If diarrhoea recurs on restarting milk feeds
If a child with diarrhoea or vomiting has a temperature for more
than 24 hours
If you think that you (or your child) are seriously unwell
Sick notes for minor illnesses
Doctors do not issue sick notes for
illnesses that last up
to one week.

OLLARISHIONERST A POLLARISHIONERST A PI recently accompanied two of our schools Harpley and Great Massingham - on a
visit to Norwich Cathedral where, with other Norfolk primary schools, they explored
the question: Who is Jesus? The children and teachers! - were given many
opportunities all around the cathedral to explore in small groups different aspects of
Jesus' life and work. They took with them beautiful crosses they had made with the
schools' prayers on them which were used in a service at the end of the day. I was
privileged to be alongside our schools. The children behaved impeccably and really
engaged with different learning opportunities on offer, which ranged from music and
movement, writing a praise song, acting and thinking about different ways to pray
and listening to stories from Jesus' life. Well done to everyone, you did us all
Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot... Yes, it's
that Guy Fawkes time of year once more. Don't forget to keep safe if you are
having a Bonfire Party or going to a fireworks display. Remember the Firework
Code. You can't be too careful with so many dangers around.
November also brings the season of Remembrance. This year November 8 will be th
Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day falls the following Wednesday (11 .) It is
profoundly important to have this annual opportunity to remember with deep
gratitude the ultimate sacrifice made by members of our Armed Forces (and also
civilians) both in previous wars - and those who tragically continue to lose their lives
to this day in theatres of war throughout the world for the freedoms we hold so dear.
Let us also remember the work of the Royal British Legion, providing lifelong support
for the Armed forces community, and other important military charities. There are
many veterans living with the consequences of life-changing mental or physical
injuries, re-building their lives. You may have seen the recent BBC programme DIY
SOS from Manchester? It brought home the great need to affirm and empower our
veterans and their families in civilian life after their careers in the Armed Forces have
ended. May God bless us all,

ASHWICKEN, LEZIATE & BAWSEY NEWS
LEZIATE PARISH COUNCIL
The Parish Council met on Wednesday
14th October 2015.
The Parish Council was pleased to
report that a solution had been found to
having a bus stop formalized along
Gayton Road. This stop has been in
existence for a while, but NCC is
hoping to formalize it with a pole.
Residents at number 14 have very
kindly agreed to this outside their
house. Cllr Coke was present and
explained that money is allocated at
County for a small number of projects
like this; the money couldn't be used in
any other area. The Parish Council is
delighted with this solution and pleased
to have a formal bus stop as it appears
The silica sand review is now under
way. Leziate Parish Council was very
keen that they would be involved at the
beginning of the next stage which is the
areas of search. Cllr Coke explained
that this won't happen and we will only
be consultees after this has taken
place. The Parish Council felt that the
whole review needs to be monitored
It seems that a lot of the Highway work
that was expected to be actioned is still
waiting to be done. Once again
Councillors raised the issue of the
Parish Council and NCC liaising,
particularly in the case of Highways and
teams to paths that hadn't been cut
rather than cutting certain paths a
number of times.
The Clerk will continue to try and get
some work done by Highways.
Once again a query was raised about
the speed limit in East Winch Road. Cllr
Coke explained that this road does not
meet the criteria for a lower speed limit.
Cllr Barnet queried if the criteria for
Norfolk should be reviewed.
Concern was raised about obnoxious
odours in Gayton Road. If this affects
you then the advice is to contact
BCKLWN on 616200 option 2. They are
aware of the problem but if they can
highlight who is being affected then it
will help their investigation.
Cllr Coke reported that there are going
to be some severe cuts at County Hall,
and the council tax will probably
increase, but hopefully by no more than
2%. It appears that the Parish Council
will be asked to take on more duties in
the coming financial year.
The Parish Council agreed to get
quotations to prune the hedge on the
left hand side of the Village Hall and
next month we should be able to make
a decision on this work.
Leziate Parish Council next meets on th
11 November 2015, 7.30pm in the
village hall. All parishioners are

GAYTON WOMEN'S INSTITUTE
Members were pleased to welcome Hazel Gillingham to the October meeting. She
gave a talk on the life of Mary Seacole. Mary Seacole was born in Jamaica in 1805 of a
British father and Jamaican mother. She was brought up by her grandmother as her
mother owned and ran a store and hotel on the island. However, much of Mary's
entrepreneurship and medical knowledge came from her mother. She gained further
knowledge as she embarked on many travels outside the Caribbean. With her brother
she owned a hotel in Panama for a while and there was instrumental in helping and
saving patients suffering from cholera, having suffered from the disease herself. She
once again journeyed to England when the Crimean War broke out. She applied to the
War Office and Florence Nightingale's group of nurses to be allowed to go to the Crimea
and tend to the sick and wounded but was turned away. Undeterred she joined a
distant relative who was going to Balaclava on business. They set up a general store
and hotel near the British camp in the summer of 1855 near the besieged city of
Sevastopol. Although her work tending wounded soldiers was appreciated by the
British Army, when she returned to England after the war she didn't receive the
recognition she deserved and which was afforded to Florence Nightingale and her
group. However, in recent years Mary Seacole's efforts in overcoming discrimination
and prejudice - risking her life to bring comfort to wounded and dying soldiers - is at last
being recognised. Hazel was thanked for her most interesting and enthusiastic talk.
Various Centenary events had been enjoyed in September, particular the Nar Valley
Group Tea Party held in the Assembly Rooms, Swaffham, when the food served was
based on the same menu as that served to W.I. members at the Buckingham Palace
Garden Party in June. Arrangements were discussed for the Nar Valley Group Meeting
as was the annual visit to Caithness Crystal in November.
The competition to guess the weight of an object was won by Hilda Bond the winning
weight being 2lbs. 10 ozs. and the prize being the object a bottle of rum. Handy for
your Christmas cakes Hilda!
The next meeting on Tuesday 3 November will include the Annual General Meeting
when various reports will be given and an election of the new Committee will take place.

All the answers can be found on our web site at
www.ggmbenefice.uk , along with lots more information but if you
couldn't find an answer (and the quick way was to use the search
button) then here they are:
It is Congham Church that was connected to the Rectory by an underground tunnel.
It is Gayton Church that has a bronze sculpture of Jacob wrestling the Angel.
Great Massingham Church was where Sir Robert Walpole was taught in the Porch.
Roydon Church was re designed by an architectural practice that included William Morris.
Gayton Thorpe has a Sacramental font, often described as one of the great mediaeval
Grimston Church has a whole host of mediaeval carvings that include a mermaid.
Ashwicken Church's font was carved in Benares, India and presented to the Church
Harpley Church is another Church with interesting carvings including a squirrel.
Both Little Massingham and Grimston Church have carvings of a Green Man.
Amazingly East Walton Church still has and uses its chalice dating back to 1681.
Many of these can be seen in photographs on the site along with pictures taken at events
such as the Grimston Tractor Rally, Congham's Snail Race and Harpley's Art Festival.

Light Up A Life
Christmas is almost here for another year. It is during this time that friends and
family come together to share this special season. However, it is always difficult
when we think of those who unfortunately cannot share it with us.
The hospice would like to invite members of the local community to remember a
special person or people this Christmas by dedicating a light on our Christmas tree
which will be brightly lit in front of the Hospice during December. Anyone who
wishes to make a dedication should call the Hospice fundraising team on 01485
601701 or pick up a leaflet from one of the Hospice shops.
As part of your Light up a Life dedication, you will have:-
The opportunity to attend a Light up a Life service during December, when
guests will be able to light a candle.
The names of your loved ones entered into our Light up a Life Book of
Your loved ones names entered into our Light up a Life Order of Service.
This year the Hospice is hosting four Light up a Life services. The services are open
to everyone, not just people who have made a dedication.
Sunday 6 December at King's Lynn Minster (3pm)th
Monday 7 December at Sandringham Visitor Centre (5pm)th
Thursday 10 December at The Norfolk Hospice, Hillington (5.30pm)
Everyone at the Hospice looks forward to welcoming the community at the services.
Advent Course 2015
In four sessions we will be reflecting on The
Nativity, using the BBC dvd of the series, The
Dates and times are November 26 , December 3 , th

An irregular page for fun things
Now for something completely different
Gluten free, diary free and sugar free chocolate cake!! I know, I know .But trust me
this is yummy! Makes a 9 one-layer cake
1-19oz can of unseasoned black beans strained and rinsed; 5 large eggs
1 tblsp pure vanilla extract; tspn sea salt; 6 tblsp of coconut oil melted;
cup of honey + 1tspn of sugar substitute (eg Stevia); 6 tblsp of unsweetened
cocoa powder; 1 tspn baking powder; tspn baking soda.
Pre heat oven to 170 degs. Grease a 9 tin (I use a spring clip one) and place round
of parchment in the bottom. Shake excess water off the beans and place in a
blender or food processor along with three of the eggs, vanilla, Stevia and salt. Blend
until it is all liquefied and no lumps! Put in the cocoa powder, baking powder and
soda and whizz for another minute, then add the coconut oil, honey and two
remaining eggs and whizz again. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and
smooth over. Rap the tin a couple of times on the worktop to get rid of any air
bubbles. Put it in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Cake is cooked when it is firm to the
touch. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins. Then turn it out onto a cooling tray.
Now you can top it with sugar free vanilla butter cream, but, dear reader, this is
where I fell at the final fence and I melted a good bar of chocolate with a bit of butter
and spread this on the top. Enjoy.
The Grim Reaper came for me last night, but I beat him off with the vacuum cleaner.
Talk about Dyson with death.....
I start a new job in Seoul next week. I thought it was a good Korea move.
Whilst putting the grandsons to bed, I started out years ago saying night night
and I love you this much..arms akimbo, then it was arms all the way round my
back... then as they were a bit older, round the world and back and now to all
the planets and back.... Last half-term, a cheeky Dylan popped his head out of
the top bunk and said And I like you to Gaywood and back,,,,,,,,,Quickly

EAST WINCH NEWSwww.eastwinchandwestbilney.co.uk
Mineral Extraction: pending Sibelco application.
Several years ago, land to the north of the A47 and west of East Winch (Min 41) was
earmarked as suitable for mineral extraction. Sibelco is preparing to make a planning
application in the first quarter of 2016, at which point objections may be made. To
inform people who may be affected, and to hear people's views, they are holding th
information days on Friday,13 November from 4pm and on Saturday, 14th
November 10-4 at the village hall.
If planning permission is granted, Sibelco intends to divide extraction into 3 phases,
starting with the area nearest Grandcourt Farm. The footpath will be diverted along
Long Drove. After removal of topsoil and carstone, the pit will be 25-30 metres deep.
The silica sand extracted will be taken back to Leziate across the worked area and
will not go by road.
The final stage, nearest to the village, will bring extraction within 150-200 metres of
the nearest houses, but 100 metres from Holland House. Restoration will consist of
making sloping sides and creating lakes divided by a causeway along which the path
will go. The lakes, about 12 metres deep, will be fenced.
Sibelco maintains that the sand quarried poses no risk to health as, at 30-50 microns
it cannot be absorbed by the lungs, while finer particulates from diesel and other
pollutants are much more dangerous. The noise level is not expected to exceed the
noise from the A47.
13 and 14 Nov 2015 Public meetings
Jan-March 2016 Planning Application and response from public.
Mid late 2017 Planning consent may be granted.
Early 2018 Work starts on Phase 1.

It's been another tricky summer coping with the maternity roost in the church. Thank
you so much to everyone who helps to try to keep it clean. We know it's an
impossible task and we are still trying to get things changed so that the bats are
confined to the roof space as they were when the building works were carried out.
The bats are only in the church over the summer breading period, so we have the
Autumn and Winter to sort the problem out. Hopefully the cleaning next Summer will
be a much less onerous task.
Internal Changes to the Church
We have recently received permission from the Archdeacon to investigate what is
going on behind the reredos. We are now able to remove the reredos and store it.
Once we know what's behind it, we can decide what needs to be done, if anything to
make the wall good and apply for full permission to do whatever is required. At that
point we will also apply with respect to the organ. A lot of background work and
research is being completed to find out the best solution and we will give a full
update when we have more information. In the meantime we have an electric organ
in the church for use in services.
We are continuing with our Celtic style services. They are a beautiful and peaceful
end to the weekend and worth coming to investigate it you haven't been yet.
Our Christmas Carols by Candlelight will be happening in December. I will be asking
for helpers to read, so if you think you might like to, please get in touch. I will confirm
the date when we will be decorating the church in the next Magazine issue. It is likely
to be around the 10th December."

The Trust is doing some work to improve people's experience of visiting the hospital.
To make visiting easier, all the entrances have been colour coded to match the zone
colours. These will be included in the letters and on the car park.

With winter approaching, people are being asked to help keep Norovirus out of the
hospital. This is one of the most infectious agents that faces the NHS every year; with
this in mind and with Norovirus already spreading in the community, it is important
