Events organised by The Friends

Walking boots on, pencil to hand, it’s time to have a go at the walking trail Treasure Hunt, this year around the Hemblington and Burlingham area. If you tried to solve all the clues in last year’s treasure hunt, you will know what fun it is. If you didn’t, now’s your chance to find out! The entry forms are available at All Saints Church for just £5 per team. They contain all the instructions you need, and you can attempt the trail in one go, or do it over several sessions, as the mood – and the weather – suggests. The prize of a “Candlelit dinner for two” will be awarded in early September, as the closing date for completed entries is 31st August. All profits are going towards the Hemblington Church Repair Fund.

You can pick up your Treasure Hunt forms any time – perhaps at the joint Hemblington Parish Council/ Friends AGM on Thursday, 6th June (7.00 pm). The main speaker will be that well known and respected landscape historian Prof. Tom Williamson (UEA). His theme will be “Trees and Woods of the Norfolk Landscape” but it will doubtless include much more in relation to the history of the area as well as some of his famous anecdotes. Refreshments will be available before the AGM starts.
