Fireworks at 1.45 am Sunday 5 August

Did anyone hear the fireworks in Reepham (wedding at Booton?) at 1.45 am this morning (Sunday 5 August) or know whose they were?
 
It is against the law for anyone to set off fireworks between 11 pm and 7 am, except on certain occasions (such as Bonfire Night, when the cut off is 12 midnight, and New Year’s Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year, when the cut off is 1 am).
 
Call 101 to give any information to the police.
 

Meeting to establish Reepham Lions Club

An informal meeting to establish Reepham Lions Club will be held at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 14 August in the King’s Arms, Market Place, Reepham.
 
The club is being instigated by Barry Howes, founder of Reepham & District Rotary Club, and Andrew Hadley, who was a member of the Rotary club for several years.
 
Both decided that Reepham and the surrounding district would benefit, as many towns across the UK have, from having a second, alternative service club to help meet the needs of the local community.
 

Plaque to be unveiled for WWII bomber crash

On 10 February 1941, a Handley Page Hampden bomber crashed into Bluestone Plantation, north of Cawston, killing all the aircrew, one of which we understand was his 21st birthday.
 
A plaque to commemorate the crash of the bomber will be unveiled on Sunday 2 September at 11.45 am at the memorial for the 1944 “Lucky Strike” B52 plane crash on Booton Road, near Cawston. This will follow the normal church service at 10.30 am in St Agnes, Cawston.
 
Contact has been made with some of the family of the aircrew who would like to be present at the unveiling.
