Members celebrate a sparkling 2013

The Paston Heritage Society celebrated a remarkable year with a gathering for members at Bacton Village Hall on the evening of December 7. 

Happily the hall survived the previous day's storm surge without damage, though just down the road at Walcott it was a different story. As a result routes to the hall were limited (the coast road was closed at Walcott), but this did not deter stalwarts and friends from enjoying the evening, during which we looked back at all the events organised during 2013 as a result of receiving the All our Stories grant. Even founder Lucy Care was well enough to attend, despite her recent problems.

The year's events have been recorded on this website, so they will not be repeated here, but chair Dr Rob Knee thanked everyone who had been involved. Excellent refreshments, including mulled wine, were available as usual at PHS functions. The highlight of the evening nevertheless was Peter Stibbons' showing of selections from the DVD that he is putting together and which will be linked to the new research website.

Further meetings for members are planned during 2014, with provisional dates set at 19 March, 2 July and 15 October. It was pointed out that next year is the society's 21st birthday.
