Fantastic, High Quality, Moving Event!
‘LEST WE FORGET’ What a won
S ome very positive comments have been received about this moving event held in St Mary’s on the 7th and 8th
November. Andrew Bickerton writes:
A total of 132 people attended and the
magnificent sum of £676 was received in
donations. When we add the residue of
sponsorship receipts, we should be able to
donate around £900 to the Poppy Appeal.
Of course, there are many to thank.
First, and most importantly, all those who
made great sacrifices during that terrible
time of the Great War. We owe them more
than we can ever pay.
Secondly, our sponsors: Neale Davies,
Top Spec Roofing, Anglian Architectural,
Leicester Farm, Premier Fireworks, S & R
Reeve, Colin Whitmore, Listawood, Great
Massingham Parish Council, Screenprint
Studio, Outback Autos, Great Massingham
Village Hall and The Mallard.
Thirdly, all involved in the production
who gave of their time over many weeks
and endured the cold nights in St Mary’s
Church and my frequent amendments to
improve the final result.
I cannot omit the wonderful work done by
Geoff Randall. The exhibition in St Mary’s,
of WWI archives and memories associated
with Massingham residents, was superb.
Lastly, to all of you who managed to
tear yourselves away from your
warm homes and TV, thank
you for your generosity
and compliments. I hope it
will remain with you each
Remembrance Day to come.
If I had known it was
going to be so good
I’d have come on the
Friday night as well!

I thought I needed to comment about the four new streetlights
we now have down Weasenham Road. They look to me as if
they have been transported from King’s Lynn High Street and
do not look very rural at all.
This is the third different design of streetlight we now have in
the village - there were already the ones that are attached to
telegraph or electricity poles and the original stand-alone ones
that look like a village streetlight should look (my personal
I realise that the new lights are much more efficient in the use
of electricity but surely, in this day and age, you could have a
more efficient bulb to fit the older type of light.
I wonder what the fourth design of streetlight will be in this
mish-mash of lamps? Bob Nash
