We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Village Hall
£12 a year membership fee. Individual meetings £2 for visitors. All are welcome.
This month we had a very informative talk about fire safety in the home from Kenny Reynolds. With some horrific examples from his own experience of working in the Fire Service, he convinced us to take care with all of our electrical equipment, to have and check smoke alarms and to be very careful with candles. With an array of visual aids, he showed us how to handle a chip fire and how to use sockets safely. But perhaps his most important message was for us to remember to dial 999 at the first sign of fire and not to put any of our belongings before our own safety. He also gave us a number that you can ring for a free home fire safety check – 0800 9178137
Our next meeting is on Tuesday Nov. 14th. at 2 p.m. in the Village Hall when we will hear about the North Walsham and Dilham Canal – past, present and future. There will also be a competition for a boat or barge – any size and made of any material. Visitors are most welcome for £2 on the door.
