Gorleston Library  -  Friends of Gorleston Library Christmas Fair: Saturday 9 December, 10 – 3; GOSH will have a stand

GOSH Blue plaques        

Old Lifeboat Shed   -   No replies from the owner; put on long term hold

William George Fleming GC., RNLI Gold, Silver and Bronze medals   -    the unveiling event is arranged for Monday 23 October at 11 a.m. It will be unveiled by Paddy Lee, the current lifeboat coxswain. Ask the Pavilion if they can lay-on refreshments at about 11.30 after the event.

High Street Methodist Church / Wetherspoon’s   -   we are entirely in their hands for a date.

Gorleston Festive shop-window judging and awards

Les will collect back the GOSH award from last year’s winner.

Our own pre-Christmas meeting  

Agreed we ask the Shrublands café to do a festive buffet and  that we, again, make a collection in lieu of sending Christmas cards to each other

Any Other Business:

Attention was drawn to the Ormsby Psalter having been exhibited in Norwich and we regretted that the Gorleston Millennium Manuscript was not similarly exhibited.  

The next meeting is on 14th November and the speaker in the second half will be Dusty Miller, speaking about the Dusmagrik Youth Theatre group and The Pavilion Theatre
