Overstrand Life - Janet's Diaries

Saturday morning we walked along to see the opening of the Geology and Wildlife kiosk in Harbord Road. Eddie Anderson (TV presenter and producer) gave an amusing and enlightening presentation before cutting the ribbon and declaring the kiosk officially open. Both Martin Warren and Rob Spray were thanked for providing the details which have been used on both internal and external displays. The kiosk will provide visitors with information as to what can be seen and found in the locality and it will help to reinforce that Overstrand is a coastal village with a wealth of natural pleasures to enjoy and not one of a commercial seaside resort.

Wednesday 10th June 2015 - Foundry Arms Certificate, Bats and Broadband

I was extremely pleased to read on Facebook that the Foundry Arms in Northrepps has won a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor in recognition of the consistent 5 star reviews they’ve received. A lot of hard work has gone into turning this pub into a welcoming meeting place for locals and visitors and where good food is served in a friendly atmosphere. Jason, Sara and Sandra well deserve this award.

In the warmer months, we enjoy sitting in our conservatory in the evenings, looking out on the garden and when the sun sets, observing the bats that dip and dive across ours and neighbours gardens. However, we are a little concerned this year at the drop in numbers and wonder if the felling of trees on Hillingdon Park has resulted in the bats seeking roosts elsewhere. There are plenty of bugs and moths in our garden for them to feed on but of course they may be feeding in areas richer in food sources. It will be interesting in July, when we take part in the annual bat survey, to see if numbers have actually dropped or whether they are feeding later into the night.
