Centenary celebrations -
A centenary celebration dinner organised by East Norfolk NFU raised more than £900 from some light-hearted entertainment. Christopher Deane flipped the coin for "heads & tails" and a £5 note in an envelope boosted funds too - and Neal Sands won the £200 top prize. Further donations for Sarah Hammond's floral table decorations helped too.
Peter Gardiner, chairman of East Norfolk NFU branch, who welcomed the 166 members and guests at the Boathouse, Ormesby, said that the evening's final proceeds would benefit farming's charity, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Nelson's Journey. County chairman Nick Deane thanked the team at the North Walsham office for organising a successful event and also the guest speaker Henry Blofeld, who was given a rousing reception. He then recounted some of the highlights from his 47-year career with the BBC and Test Match Special. One of the organisers, James Taylor, said that the final total raised would be announced soon.

President’s farm walk

Our president Thomas Love is inviting fellow Stalham members to a farm walk on Wednesday, July 10.
With the theme of “farming and flooding,” Mr Love and his son William will talk about the challenges of
coastal erosion and the ever-present threat of sea flooding. And, work to “re-charge” the beach is also taking place. The farm’s enterprises include peas, cereals, sugar beet, potatoes, of course, and also celery and daffodils. Please meet at The Chimneys, Walcott NR12 0NW from 5.30pm for a 6pm prompt start. And, given that temperatures can fall rapidly with the sea mist, bring some warm clothing.
This is a joint meeting with East Norfolk branch of the National Farmers’ Union. To help with the catering, please let the North Walsham office or the club’s secretary, Michael Pollitt know by 10am on Monday, July 8 at the latest.

A full selection of photographs from the latest annual dinner at the Boathouse, Ormesby, will soon be featured on the club's website including the prizegiving. And there was great applause as Emma Papworth was presented with the club's Potato Cup on behalf of LF Papworth. It was particularly appropriate because the winning crop as judged by Denis Walsh was the variety, Daisy - a name shared by the daughter of Tim and Emma Papworth.
