Through the eyes of a child
Seeing the world through the eyes of a child can be amusing and also illuminating. I came across a number of comments made by a group of very young children when asked what they thought of the church. Here are just a few: The Vicar lives in the Church. The church is built for God to live in, except you can't find him in there. You can find the Vicar. It's God who's harder to find. I think maybe he's hiding. The church has lots of windows, but they're high up so you can't look out of them. They have Bible people painted on them. God is in some of them, but he looks quite angry. Maybe that's because all these people are sitting in his house. There is a very important table called an altar. But it doesn't alter, it doesn't do anything, it just stands there. If you run around the church when the Vicar is talking, you get dragged off and taken out the church for five minutes. Then Dad says I've got to calm down. Sometimes Dad takes me out to calm down three or four times. Sometimes I was calm already! There's a big box up the front on top of some steps, it's for standing in when you tell people about God. Except the Vicar doesn't go up there, he stands down the bottom with everyone else, and tells them what to do from there. Prayers are like asking God for things, but God must hate you asking for things, because when the person's asking the prayers everybody else ducks down and hides behind the chair in front! Those comments gave me more than one smile and a chuckle to myself, but they also made me think. Children see things in a very straight forward, literal way and they are not afraid to say what they think. In that way they are often more honest than us adults. They can reveal much to us. However, unless something is explained and taught to them they will simply 'say what they see.' Rather like the TV quiz show 'catch phrase'! I really enjoy the contact I have with the children in our villages, through the schools, guiding groups, messy church and family services on Sundays. If I were to carry out my own survey about 'the church' (now there's a thought) with our children (which includes messy church and collective worship in school) I hope most would say 'it's fun'. I sincerely hope none of them would say they have to be taken out to 'calm down'! And I hope that at least some would 'see' the church as the place where they come to learn about the life of Jesus and the stories he told which teach us all how to live His Way and become better, more loving, happier people. And ultimately where we not only learn about, but discover the love of God for ourselves. Let the little children come to me, do not stop them, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs and he took them up in his arms, laid hands on them, and blessed them. Mark 10.13-16 Much love Rev'd Jane

3.6million pounds.
You may well have seen the signs that Anglian Water is spending 3.6 million on a new sewerage scheme at Ashwicken. It is an awful lot of money, but some homes are having terrible problems. So it is a good thing. But part of the scheme involves siting a sewage treatment works in Church Lane and the residents are not very happy about that. It will cover 2/3 of an acre and be completely open to view. It is also situated directly on a difficult bend and there are concerns about fly tipping and others. Worst of all it will completely blot the landscape. Other sewage works locally are set away from public gaze, often down farm tracks and even then completely screened. So what can be done? An alternative site exists and has already been offered to Anglian Water. A group of CARERS, representing the views of all opponents, have set out their objections to the planning authorities. They are discussing the situation with Toby Coke, our NCC councillor and Henry Bellingham our local MP. They have also leafleted every single home in Ashwicken, 158 and, so far, have received 118 votes in favour of their petition that: "Anglian Water review the current proposal and review the alternative site." There were just 4 abstentions and only 1 person voted for the existing site. Thanks go to everyone for their support and we now hope that Anglian Water do the right thing. Planning permission has not yet been granted and it may be that, by the time you read this, everything will have been settled. Let us hope it is the right thing. Signed by CARERS

Sad Loss at Ashwicken Primary

As many of you may have heard we had our chickens stolen from the school site th on Saturday 8 June. The theft was discovered by one of our parents when he and his daughter came to feed the chickens on the Sunday morning. The wire fence had been carefully cut and five of our beloved pet chickens had gone, leaving the remaining chicken, 'Betty Boo Boo', quivering in her nest. The children, staff and parents are clearly very upset and puzzled as to why someone would do such a despicable crime. The children lovingly reared these chickens from eggs five years ago and they have been part of our school 'family' for such a long time. The children used to collect the eggs every day and the chickens would follow them around as they were so tame. 'Betty' has been re-homed with a local family and now all we have is an empty chicken run. Many thanks to all those kind people who have offered to replace our chickens and help mend the fence. If anyone has any information about the theft then please contact the local police or the school.

Leziate Parish Council

Meeting held 12 June 2013. Several residents attended from Church Lane and presented the results of their recent survey and consultation on the sewage treatment works. It was made very clear that the residents and indeed the Parish Council are supportive of the scheme, but it appears that the vast majority of residents in the immediate vicinity are against the siting of the treatment works. After much debate, it was agreed that the Parish Council would support the residents in this and write to Anglian Water and also Norfolk County Council to ask them to reconsider the site and change to alternative site 2. Cllr Beales, Borough Councillor and Cllr Coke, County Councillor also supported this. The Chair, Cllr Eayres, welcomed Cllr Coke to his first Parish Council meeting and we all look forward to him being a regular at future meetings. Toby Coke gave a report on the progress of stopping the incinerator and reported that Cabinet Scrutiny is calling for an independent report on the cost implications of pulling out of the contract. He also reported that they are asking central Government for help in extricating themselves from the contract. Andy Wallace, the NCC highways engineer for the area, was present at the meeting. He promised to look at the verge cutting which has been patchy in places. Andy believes it may be because NCC are only funding two cuts, meaning maybe the first cut was left too long.

Reports were heard about the use of motorised craft at the sailing club and advertising of wakeboarding and water skiing. Cllr Beales has reported this to the Borough and it will become an enforcement issue if it continues. It is imperative that any sightings or hearings of motorised craft are reported to the Borough Council so a full record can be kept of any such incidents. Our local PCSO was at the meeting and gave a report on happenings in the Parish. She is still working on controlling motor bikes and litter at Bawsey pits and will be issuing leaflets in several languages to the people she meets there. The Parish Council was saddened to hear about the theft of the chickens from the school. This was a particularly nasty crime and if anyone has information then they are requested to phone 101. The Parish Council next meets on 10 July at 7.30pm.

All are welcome and there is always a chance for parishioners to have their say.

Leziate WI
May Meeting Report The speaker for the May meeting on Tuesday 21st May was Rosemary Fenson, talking about herbs and spices. We were given lots of health tips on how to use chives, mint, parsley, rosemary, lavender, horseradish, garlic, cloves and many more. The old saying 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away', you do need to eat the apple skin for the pectin in it. Rosemary was very interesting and certainly knew her herbs and spices. She was thanked by President Eileen Baxter. A recipe using any of these was won by Ali South, 2nd Margareta Whiskin, 3rd Sylvia Webber. Raffle winner was Janet Jary. WI members are to prepare and serve refreshments at Leziate Village Fete on Saturday 6th July. The WI annual AGM national meeting is in Cardiff. Lesley Haywood-Nudge from Pentney is our delegate. The resolution is the decline of high street shopping and we all voted for this resolution. After enjoying refreshments, the meeting closed. June Meeting Report The members present enjoyed creating a ceramic item of pottery. Frances Morton from Hunstanton brought lots of pieces to paint. Platters and tiles were mostly chosen by members, as they seemed easier. One member managed to create her house name with a frog, which she drew on a tile. All items were taken back to the premises to be fired and will be returned in the near future. It was so interesting. Frances was very helpful in the choice of colours and designs used. Janet Eason arranged for this project and she gave the vote of

thanks to Frances. Three members attended Gayton WI for their coronation evening. Sadly two of our special members, Jean Withers and Joan Brown, are receiving hospital treatment and were unable to be with us. Hopefully they will both be back with us soon. Raffle winner was Myrtle Roberts. Dersingham Flower Festival in July was discussed and members agreed to book meals in advance.

Incinerator update
The County Council was meant to be debating getting out of the incinerator th contract on 17 June. However, officers did not allow all members to see the contract. Instead, a press release was issued suggesting it could cost over 80million to walk away. An officers report said compensation would be due to Cory Wheelabrator even if corruption had occurred. This prompts the questions: what other surprises are still 'lurking' in the contract and were any of the terms negotiated favourable to Norfolk County Council? Cabinet agreed a QC should examine the contract and review the advice given to the Council that led to it being signed. It was also agreed that waste industry experts would assess the potential savings that could be made from alternative waste treatments. These are likely to be significant, because more advanced waste treatments are both cheaper and more efficient. Cory Wheelabrator's technology was 'state of the art' in Germany and America around 20 years ago. Things have moved on and expensive marketing does not make up for having an out of date product. On 10 June 2013, Cabinet approved in full recommendations which included having independent waste industry experts prepare a Waste Management report looking at what can be saved by using alternatives. It will be a good opportunity for the new administration to show it is better than the last. The July music event is postponed until 21st September due to clashing with Festival Too.

Gayton Parish Council News

Meeting held 10 June 2013 Skate/MBX Ramps Robert Webster and his brother attended the meeting to give the councillors more information on what sort of equipment they, and others their age in the Parish, would like to see on the playing field. Robert had secured the names of several people in the village who would support the installation of skate/BMX ramps and made a very convincing argument to the Council that the equipment would benefit the whole Parish. The Clerk suggested that the Council consider renting skate/BMX ramps for the day so that residents can see what they look like and how much noise they generate. This was met with general support and costings will be investigated. Jubilee Hall The Charity Commission has confirmed that as custodian trustees, the Parish Council has no powers or responsibilities to maintain the Hall should there come a time when there are no management trustees in position. The current management trustees can appoint the Parish Council as trustees to run the charity, but this could only be done following a public meeting and the current management trustees decision to do so. The Council agreed that it would do all it could to help support the current trustees and that the Hall is a valuable parish commodity that should be maintained for as long as possible.

agreed that this would be achievable as a potential new tenant of the owned land could install the fencing in lieu of rent. Speedwatch It was noted that nearly all of the volunteers for the new speedwatch team have been successfully vetted. Mr Grant has also toured the Parish, including Gayton Thorpe, with the police to agree on sites for where the speedwatch team can operate. The team are now waiting for a training date before operations can commence. For the full minutes of the meeting, visit www.gaytonnews.co.uk. The next th meeting is planned to be on 8 July at 7.30pm.

Learn, Laugh, Love and be the best that you can be

www.gayton.norfolk.sch.uk Gayton continues to enjoy its sporting success this summer. Our tri-golf team qualified for the final at Middleton, where they put in a fine performance.

It was a very enjoyable match with plenty of parents to cheer the children on. Even Goslings came along to support the teams. Gayton Primary FC were delighted to win 41. An excellent team effort with plenty of chances on both sides.

The Year 4 mini-tennis team won the cluster event and went through to the final in June. Here Chloe Papworth is helping steer the team to victory. Katelin Taylor competed at the area Swimming Gala and came away with an outstanding 2 Gold medals. We are very proud that she was able to represent the school at this event. We would also like to say a big thank you to Ashwicken School who came to Gayton for our first 'home' football match in our new football kit.

This term we have also been busy out and about on our school trips. Banham Zoo was a fantastic day out for the older classes. What strange creatures are these? Otter and Badger classes opened their own Roman Museum for the day. Parents and children were invited to taste Roman food, attack Roman soldiers, play Roman board games, watch the archeologists at work, learn about Roman times using the computer and look at the work the children had completed this term.

In June We completed our story of what happened to Jesus after he rose from the dead by looking at the Bible account of when the Holy Spirit first came upon Jesus' followers. The Holy Spirit came - and the Holy Spirit is here to stay and can be with all of us as our guide and comforter. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Margaret Howard who has played keyboard for us (and done so much more) since we began Messy Church in September 2011. We wish her and Rev'd William a very happy retirement. Despite the sad farewell as usual we had a great deal of fun with craft activity and singing and food. And the fun just goes on because in July we have: Messy Church on the Beach Thursday 25 July, leaving Gayton at 4pm, returning from Heacham South Beach approx 6.30pm

The coach will leave from outside the Social Club in Gayton (opposite the school). If you haven't yet booked your place contact: Rev'd Jane 01553 636227. First come first served. In August We take a break. Messy Church wishes you all a happily messy summer with lots of fun and sunshine (hopefully!). We look forward to seeing you all again in September. In the meantime do join us for our family services at St Nics.

Gayton WI
June Report Jane welcomed Gayton WI members and guests from Terrington St Clement and Leziate, Bawsey and Ashwicken WIs to our 60th Anniversary of the Queen's Coronation meeting. The hall was decorated in a truly patriotic style with members entering into the spirit of the evening by dressing in red, white and blue. Entertainment was provided by Patsy Rose who, through her guitar playing and singing, took some of us back to our youth. Her repertoire included the Twist, the Music Man with all the actions and Tina Turner's 'Simply the Best'. After a break for a delicious buffet, supplied by members, Patsy again took to the floor and, with a little encouragement, so did several members; joining in with the Hokey Cokey and a Conga, which was great to see. The raffle was won by Margaret, Molly from Terrington, Deirdre, Florence, Ann and Marguerite from Leziate. The competition for 'a rose' was won by nd rd Penny A, 2 Sandra and 3 Jane. It really was a lovely celebration meeting. If you think you would like to see what the WI can offer you, please do come along to the Jubilee Hall on the first Tuesday of the month, at 7.30pm. You will be made most welcome. Sandra Brock

Gayton Road Fisheries was established in 1991 by Chris and Lynda Newell. We have developed a quiet and relaxing enclosed 10 acre site with three superb fisheries containing English Carp, Tench and Wels Catfish. Fishing is only available to guests staying with us in one of our lodges or in a caravan / motorhome. In addition, there are holiday lodge plots available. Gayton Road Fisheries are also fisheries managers of the nearby Nar Valley Fisheries and Hobbs Lake Trout Fishery. We specialise in fisheries management and stock fish supplies. We can supply Carp, Tench, Wels Catfish, Roach, Rudd, and Bream. Stock management is carried out using seine nets and electro fishing techniques. We have also been involved in the design of new lake projects and fisheries management plans. Indeed, many local fisheries have benefitted from the involvement of Gayton Road Fisheries.

Megan's Challenge News

Our challenge this year was to walk The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coastal Route (approx 93 miles) over three days from th th 24 to 26 May Our chosen charity for this challenge is Nelson's Journey. Nelson's Journey, based in Norwich, helps children who need support when someone close to them dies. They help them find ways of coping with their bereavement, enabling them to look forward to a happy future. www.nelsonsjourney.org.uk Day 1, 7am on the Peddars Way at Knettishall Heath. After a heavy rainfall the previous night the challengers Stephen, Jamie, Simon, Emily-Jane, Clare Howard and Helen were assured by the support driver Dom 'Bonny Lad' McCallum there would be no more rain. Within half an hour of setting off the heavens opened, so it was waterproofs on, hoods up and heads down. After 22 miles of wet tracks and muddy footpaths they met Dom at Swaffham, a chance to change socks and a hot drink. The final 10 miles took them through Castle Acre (linking with Nar Valley Way) up to Great Massingham where the first stage finished, 32 miles in 10 hours. Day 2, 7am, on the Peddars Way at Great Massingham A sunny day as the challengers continued towards Ringstead, then on to Holme-next-the-Sea where the Peddars Way finishes. Here the challengers were picked up by Dom and taken to Hunstanton to join the North Coast Path walking east to Wells. On route at Brancaster church Julian Howard joined the challengers and they became seven. This was to be a very

difficult day as the aches, pains and the dreaded blisters started to take their toll. After a grueling 36 miles and 13hrs although hoping to reach Stiffkey, it was decided to finish at Wells. Day 3, 5am on another sunny day Fresh legged Julian, Brad and I along with Syrena Sheldrick joined the walk weary but ever determined challengers ready to start the final stage. Starting from Wells we continued on the Coastal Path keeping to the shoreline passing through Stiffkey, Blakney, Cleynext-the-Sea, Weybourne, and Sheringham to finish at Cromer Pier 26 miles in 8hrs. Here we were met by loud cheers and clapping of friends and family who had gathered at the finish. For those who completed the entire three day challenge they all agreed it was the hardest challenge to date. Well done to the amazing challengers and driver who completed the entire three day challenge. Debbie Thrower

Our group of 21 pre-school children, 13 parents and staff followed a route round Gayton village marked with yellow butterflies, stopping part way for a snack of butterfly biscuits. We walked 2.62 miles in 1hr 25mins and raised 493 which they have donated to Nelsons Journey. Well done and a big thank you to everyone who took part.

The total amount raised for Nelsons Journey so far is approximately 3,120 (to be confirmed). A big thank you to Dom McCallum who was the most amazing support driver without whom we couldn't of done it, also to Community Bus Service for providing the big yellow bus, a most welcome sight at each stop. Thank you to Richard at V&J Knitwear for providing the challenge tee-shirts. Also many many thanks to all those who continually support us and those who have donated so generously.

Backache is common, often coming on suddenly with excruciating pain. However, seeing the doctor immediately is unlikely to help. Pain in a leg is common and is due to sciatica. Take adequate painkilling medication such as paracetamol and ibuprofen. Rest for up to 24 hours, but then be as active as you can to mobilise and strengthen your back, returning to work as soon as possible. Prolonged rest can cause further damage. When to see the doctor If backache fails to improve after two weeks If you have difficulty controlling bladder or bowels If you have weakness or numbness of a leg
