Forncett Flyer August 2012
‘Bronze’ for the Forncett Flyers Sports Team! At their first attempt the newly established Flyers team managed to trounce the opposition and fight their way through to third place. Considering how short a time they had to put together the team - and for practice and preparations - this is a remarkable achievement, and Glen and his team are to be congratulated.
Also in this issue; the floods of 1912. Both Railway Ron and John Webster (Historian) make this their topic this month – exactly 100 years ago Norfolk was under inches of water: history repeats itself this year, only the water is measured in centimetres. Also we have news of a new Optometrist in Long Stratton.
A new Village Hall team is raring to go with six-weekly quizzes with food, and the next four dates are listed here.
We say a sad farewell to Ben Puttock, a lovely local character who will be much missed.
I am having a month off now, so you won’t be hearing from me until October (first week). Have a great summer, and don't forget your brolly!
