News in Brief - July 2008

Special Bereavement Service

Hethersett Parish Church is offering a special service for bereaved people who cannot get to a funeral. 

Writing in the latest edition of the village Good News magazine, the Rector, the Rev Di Lammas says: 

“There are occasions when a loved one dies in another country or a great distance away and it may not be possible to attend a funeral. There is a form of service for use at home in the Common Worship Book. 

“It is also possible for a member of the Hethersett Church staff team to conduct a brief  at home service.”

Garden Party

Hethersett Friendly Club will be holding its annual garden party at 19, Grove Road on August 5th with stalls, teas and refreshments.

HEAT is On

Hethersett Environmental Action Team (HEAT) will be carrying out its latest village tidy up and litter pick on 14th July from 6 p.m. Volunteers are welcome with equipment being provided. The group will set off from Hethersett Methodist Church. 

HEAT has donated £50 to MacMillan Cancer Research from the recent Go Green village information day in Hethersett Village Hall.

Jubilee Room

The jubilee room in Hethersett Church Hall in Henstead Road has been decorated and re-carpeted. Now the church is appealing for Christian magazines or booklets for children and adults that can be used to pass the time for those waiting for various classes to begin or those picking people up.

Leavers' Service

Hethersett Junior School will be holding its annual end of term service in St Remigius Chruch on 22nd July at 1.45 p.m. The service will say goodbye to Year Six pupils and leaving members of staff. Leavers will also be given special remembrance books.

Shoppers Plus

Hethersett Methodist Church’s next Shoppers Plus coffee morning will take place on 26th July when the usual Saturday coffee morning will be combined with cake, book and bric-a-brac stalls from 10 a.m.

Signing On

Where did servicemen sign on in Hethersett? That is the question being posed by local historian Bea Ewart who is confused about the location of a drill hall in the village. 

Mrs Ewart, who is currently researching details for a coming publication on servicemen from the village commemorated on the war memorial in the grounds of the parish church, is hoping somebody can help locate the exact spot where enlistment took place. 

“It is on record that there was a drill hall in Hethersett, possibly as early as 1908 but we do not know where it was located,” she said. 

Possibilities include on the site of the present or previous village schools – one of which is now the church hall in Henstead Road or even the former Greyhound Public House.

Hethersett Society

Hethersett Society enjoyed a magic lantern show of slide of old Cromer by Peter Stibbons at their latest meeting. Mr Stibbons used a family heirloom lantern handed down through a number of generations of his family.
