Thanks for keeping us informed

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 - 20:43

Having just been lucky enough to pick up the last copy of Reepham Life, I would like to say “thank you” for the work you have all done over the years.

We have been lucky enough to be kept informed through this local paper. I am sure I am not the only one to say it will be greatly missed.

Restoration or rebuild?

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 21:33

When my son visited the town recently, I struggled to describe to him my misgivings about the restoration of the remaining fragment of the “third” church.

“What you’re saying, Dad,” he said, “is that it’s a bit like Trigger’s Broom”.

Perhaps only fans of the TV comedy Only Fools and Horses might catch the analogy.

  • In the episode “Heroes and Villains”, Trigger wins an award for having owned the same broom for 20 years. He reveals that it has had 17 new heads and 14 new handles, but insists it is still the same broom.
