Where has the Christmas Tree gone?

14th December 2018

It's fair to say if you are true Lynner you'll know that Christmas isn't officially Christmas until the Christmas appears on the North Lynn Silo and its lights are turned on.  Over the past few years it’s happened later and later, but this year with only eleven days to go it seems it might not happen at all.

 

Alida Brockwell When I grew up in north Lynn there was always Xmas decorations on the silo ready to go on for the 1st of December. 

 

Sandra Jackman Auker Yrs ago my husband rendered the silo hanging of a cradle & my granddaughters think that the silo is his responsibility & that it's he's job to put the lights on lol so I'll give him a telling of &tell him to get he's finger out

Louise Hoar I heard the company gone bust or something so it’s not happening. Really really sad..

 

Terri-Leigh Hurst I remember being a child every start of December it would be up that’s when we all know Christmas 🎄 was round the corner 😍

 

Above are just some of the messages we've  been sent about the situation so far, it's also been great to know I'm not the only with the passion to make this happen as it seems some are even making calls on behalf, I've had phone calls about the same idea as this message below.

 

Alan Taylor I spoke to the port manager yesterday. Agrilink used have it and they went under earlier in the year. The building is no longer being occupied. It is a health and safety issue as it has been empty for so long. They are looking at getting it safe to put it up but unlikely this year sadly.

 

Fingers crossed!

Toy Appeal 2018

3rd December 2018

I can't believe the Toy Appeal is already one week old for 2018!  It's been amazing and we are already on target to equal or even better last year’s record breaking collection.

 

Thank goodness we've had our awesome Landrover Discovery to collect them with, however it was a squeeze on Friday when shoppers at Morrison’s in King's Lynn donated 345 toys in just two hours.

 

Toy Appeal 2018

Making Magic at BGT

10th October 2018

Last night I hosted Britain’s Got Talent for the producers of the ITV show at the Alive Corn Exchange. 

Over 20 hopefuls from West Norfolk performed in front of them and the audience with the hope of maybe going one step further in the competition.

To their surprise was some unexpected support from a man who came second to a dog in 2015! Jamie Raven runner up three years ago gave his words of wisdom on stage and performed this trick for me backstage too.

Howard iPads 2018

19th September 2018

This morning I spent a couple hours with the students, staff and parents at Howard Junior in Gaywood.  Every year at the start of term each & every child is given an iPad to treat as their own during school time  throughout  their time at the school.  Howard is the only school in Norfolk that has this wonderful scheme in place that helps their children understand the technology and learn even more.

It's my job to say a few words, normally about how in my day we only had four computers for the whole school and had to hope we got picked to use them, how they are used at KL.FM and why they should take this opportunity with both hands.

Thanks for having me guys!

Yes I can

19th September 2018

Yesterday the Alive Corn Exchange was the most positive place in West Norfolk for sure.  Over 50 community groups came together to turn "No I can't" in to "Yes I can".

It was an exciting initiative to turn disability into ability and promote support for those in our community of West Norfolk who are in need of signposting and guidance.

It was great to meet to many familiar faces and some new ones too, all of them doing amazing things in our community.
