The team at Barnham Broom are on a mission: to introduce more people to golf through its participation in the Get into Golf scheme which is led by England Golf. By offering an excellent range of tuition options from resident experts Alan Hemsley and Ellie Brown, the aim is to make golf more accessible and give potential golfers the confidence to try out a new sport. As England Golf puts it: “Golf. That’s a game for middle age men in plaid trousers, right? Wrong. Golf is a great game for everyone. It’s fun, gets you fit, reduces stress and offers full lungs of fresh air. A round of golf can take you away from the hassles of everyday life and focus your mind. And it’s great for having a laugh…

Howzat! A strong batting line-up is fielded by the Westacre Theatre Company for their second summer production on the new outdoor stage. ‘Outside Edge – the Veteran’s Match’ is set around the real exploits of the cricket pavilion where you will certainly be bowled over by this action-packed comedy. But playing cricket is always about much more than willow hitting leather. The gentle humour becomes acerbic and we see worryingly recognisable characters evolving before our eyes. Their personal relationships are exactly like the ones you come across in your everyday life. Amusingly, Captain Roger finds his team is being caught out in more ways than in the sporting sense. Playwright Richard Harris won well-deserved awards for this play from the Writers’ Guild and Evening Standard. Just prior to the pandemic,…

The Westacre Theatre Company is back, treading the boards of their brand new open-air stage. Situated in scenic West Norfolk countryside alongside its landscaped lagoon, the new performance area, seating and sound system comes complete with an eye-catching canvas canopy. The Westacre venue originally blossomed into life over 30 years ago with its legendary outdoor productions. So the older audience will no doubt reminisce about the return to open-air roots. In resisting an airborne virus, superior ventilation brings significant advantages. But often open-air is true theatre at its most natural with the drama intensifying in the lengthening shadows. Outdoor performances frequently feel far more relaxed and can attract plenty of people who would not normally be tempted to venture inside their community theatre.

As the world starts to think more about what we are consuming and ransacking from the planet a small Norfolk town has seen its first Vegan and Eco friendly shop open up to cope with the demand. Rachael Farman decided to set up her shop Greener Soul in Loddon when she realised that there was a demand for more environmentally friendly items and that she, and many others in the area were having to take to the A146 and travel either to Beccles, Bungay or Norwich to purchase plant based products. As a result at a time when many shops are closing their doors for a final time, Rachael who has been a vegetarian for many years, and vegan since the turn of this year, has seen a surge of…
