Flying Start

Beachamwell Village Hall was the showcase yesterday evening for the achievements of the local Connecting Threads group during the past year, when invited guests gathered to have a first look at the exhibition which is part of the Beachamwell Walking Weekend. On display were old maps, photographs, specially made videos and a record of a year walking the local footpaths.  The exhibition also includes memories of older residents and the Connecting Threads quilt, inspired by the Beachamwell countryside.  Copies of the new Beachamwell Footpath Map were available to take away.

Chairman of CPRE Norfolk James Parry, officially launching  the event, said: ‘I am impressed by both the range and quality of material on view. This sets a high standard for what local voluntary groups can achieve.’
