A Date a day for Graham

Graham Watt is a man with plenty of dates for the coming year. 

For Graham has published a special calendar for the village of Hethersett to raise money for the parish church development fund. 

Graham, who lives in Buckingham Drive, has taken all the photographs and put together the 2007 calendar using his computer. It includes village views, village people and village events and is on sale for £5. 

It is the second year running that Graham has produced a calendar after having the idea in the summer of 2005. 

“We were given £10 by the parish church and asked to multiply. I used the money as security to borrow from myself and raised £500 for the church development and repair appeal,” Graham said. 

The calendar has proved very popular and last year sold out. There are still some remaining this year and they are available from Hethersett Post Office or directly from Graham by phoning 01603 811957. 

“My aims have been to raise money for St Remigius Church and also show people what a nice village Hethersett is,” Graham said. The calendars have gone as far as Dorset. 

The calendar also includes an update on the building work at the church: “As we go to press with the 2007 edition we have completed the roof repairs to the chancel and have paid for the preliminary planning and groundwork. As you open the January page, the second phase of the work will be imminent. This will replace the present access with a gentle slope and steps with a handrail, improving access for disabled worshippers and visitors to the building,” Graham writes. 

Graham has lived in Hethersett for three years after moving from Rockland St Mary: “Before we moved to Hethersett we got a copy of the parish newsletter. We were made very welcome and just kept going to the parish church,” he added.
