Wednesday 4th January 2017 - July to December 2016 Revisited

Continuing my review of 2016…… In July, summer finally kicked in and from here on, we enjoyed warm sunny weather, with our garden thermometer registering 32ºC during the latter half of the month. The weather was so settled, it was possible for families to be on the beach every day during their holiday. There were two village events during the month, the Yard Sale and the Summer Fair. Both were successful
drawing people into the village. Peter conducted the annual bat survey and once again we saw a drop in both numbers and types in our part of the village.

Those present at the August meeting of Overstrand Parish Council, were assured by our District Councillor, Mrs Angie Fitch-Tillett that despite concerns; the District Council would not be closing the public toilets on the car park. The Air Ambulance and the Coastguard where called in to attend two separate incidents, one on the cliff, the other on the beach. During Cromer Carnival week, trails of people could be seen leaving Overstrand

In view of the rain and strong winds the Overstrand Fireworks and Bonfire was cancelled. During the following week the bonfire material was cleared from the car park and the fireworks put in storage. The Garden Centre, which changed hands during the year, held its second market in November. There was a good selection of stalls offering Christmas items and despite the weather the turnout was excellent. Following this was Overstrand’s Christmas Bazaar which this year, stretched over three venues, The White Horse, the Methodist Church and the Parish Hall. Diggers moved onto the Mundesley Road site in preparation for constructing the new housing development of forty-two dwellings, The Pleasuance announced it would be re-opening for Christian Holidays for summer 2017 and Poppyland Publishing published ‘Overstrand in the Great War’, written by villager, Tim Bennett.
