Northwold's News
Jim Booty and Pam Eyles report on activities in and around Northwold

Parish Council
Congratulations were sent to the Jubilee Committee and the Church on the Jubilee weekend success. 
Recently a bogus 'Water inspector' was seen in the village, but two 999 calls led to no response from the Police and the man escaped. One of the callers is still waiting for the Police.
A resident has been hit by a golf ball from the Recreation Ground. Golf and dogs are NOT allowed on the Recreation Ground.
The Jubilee "Best dressed house" competition was slightly marred by three large flags being stolen from houses on the A134.
The Foolhardy Folk Circus will visit us again on September 4th
New 5-a-side goals have been put on Northwold and Whittington Recreation Grounds, and the swing seats will be replaced.
Carnival
After a three day break following the Jubilee, the Annual P.T.A. Carnival was held. Lack of time probably led to the

drop in the number of floats, only six this year with Royalty the theme. Judged by Toni Arthur-Hay, the Little Normans Playgroup came first, Tots and Co. second and the Carnival Queen, (Emily Durrance), third, with the W I winning the adult section. At the Fendick Field a large crowd saw "Prince Charles and Princess Ann" win the fancy dress. Entertainment was provided by the Brandon Steel Band 'Panache', Downham Markettes, Eaglewood Line Dancers and the Birds of Prey. Other attractions included the Methwold Fire Brigade and vintage cars and tractors.
Many stalls did very brisk business, the weather stayed fine and warm, and a good time was had by all. In the evening "Kenny and the Strollers" performed at the Sports and Social Club.

Village Hall
Thank you to everyone who supported the 50p stall at the CARNIVAL (and what bargains there were).  78 was raised and there are more things to sell so a stall will be at the hall on Scarecrow weekend this time individually priced.
