St George’s Day Celebrations have taken place over the last week with a well attended and much enjoyed concert at St. Peter’s Church and the North Norfolk Classic Car Club ride out on Sunday.
There was much flag waving and singing at the concert on the 23rd, which was led by the Cromer and Sheringham Brass Band and included all the traditional favourites. A new addition this year was performances by the Peas in a Pod Theatre Group. A local group of young people who have all trained at Paston and have gone on to form their own Theatre Group. A very evocative piece of physical theatre portrayed some of the adversity which our country has overcome in the past and reflected the symbolism of St. George and defeating situations we might all feel greater than we are capable of dealing with. This was followed by a medley of traditional songs and illustrated what a range of talent this group progress. I am sure they will be a name we will become very familiar with in the town and beyond.
On a somewhat damp sunday morning Cllr Ashcroft and the Town Crier Andrew Cunningham -Brown waved off a collection of classic cars linked to the North Norfolk Classic Car Club as they began their traditional St. George’s Day ride out. This has become very much a tradition now in the April calendar in Sheringham.
