Necton Honours Local Volunteers Community spirited residents of Necton were recognised and celebrated at the Annual Parish Meeting on 27 April by Necton Parish Council through their new initiative, Community Spirit Awards. Seven local people were nominated by residents and all received a Certificate presented by guest speaker, Jeremy Goss, well-known ex Norwich City footballer. From these nominations, three were selected by an independent panel for their extra special contribution to the village. These three stars each received a certificate and a £40 voucher for a meal at the Necton Windmill, sponsored by local company, Town Farm Cars. 3 Star winners Mrs Babs Hastell for her involvement in community life since she moved to Necton in 1968. Babs has served on the Parish Council as Councillor and Chairman; served on Necton WI as committee member, moving to vice-president in 1977 and later president. She has been the village Lollipop Lady, Yoga Club Organiser, The Thursday Club Organiser, as well as helping with other groups through the years. She is still an active member of the Necton Bowls Club. For 30 years she was the Dinner Supervisor at the village school and looked after The Cubs. Frank Woodward for his life-long commitment to the Parish Council, campaigning for improvements to village infrastructure, managing village assets and being available at any time of the day or night for residents. His Parish Council career spans 32 years. Today, Frank is the Vice- Chairman of the Parish Council, a member of the Sports & Social Club committee and a trustee on the Iceni Partnership in Swaffham. Leonard(Lenny) Luff for his dedication to his role as the Village Caretaker. One might say he is doing his job, but in Lenny’s case, he does much more than ‘just his job’. Lenny, now 84, has been officially employed by Necton Parish Council for over six years, although was doing the job for many years before that. Lenny is out every day – in his yellow high Vis jacket or vest – equipped with litter picker stick and bin bag, walking or cycling his established routes of the village, making sure everywhere is covered at least once every week. Lenny’s sunny outlook on life makes a wonderful difference to those people he meets out and about in the village and for some this may be the only friendly face they see that day. 27 Merle Boddy Centre Thank you Candy and Kerry our two Tesco wonders.The cheese tasta morning went down a storm with everyone, including staff, not only a lot of new varities to try but a fun filled time of memories of when cheese was a luxury and then when cheese was the main stay of every working man’s sandwiches and cheese on toast was for tea. Thank you lions for an enjoyable quiz evening; our lions bars were just yummy. We are fairly consistant at our rating with holding bottom place at most of the quizzes, somone has to hold this postion and it seems to fit us like a glove. Praise is sometimes not given enough to hard working hostelries. I want to put in a small way right. The staff from the Merle Boddy Centre had what can only be discribed as absolutely scrumish and delighul meal at the Horse and Groom. Our waitress was helpful, patient and nothing was too much trouble.This made our evening out very relaxed and we will definitely be going again. So to Trudy and your team, thanks. Another crafty day. These beautiful ladies are ready for a ball. Can I just ask if any of you crafters have bits and bobs you don’t want or won’t use we will and can make use of all your odds and ends. If you can bring them to the centre, great but if not I will pick them up ring georgie 01760 724 527. To the ladies of Swaffham evening WI , thankyou for making my evening so enjoyable, i had a ball, you really know how to make a meeting swing. I hope that I came with some useful tips for you to be able to use in the world of which is dementia also for your generosity of £123 of which i am very grateful.
