With reference to having our say on the town centre cinema plan; as well as having the Hollywood on the seafront, many people used the former Regent, later Mecca Bingo on Regent Road.

The community of Hemsby thanked


How embarrassing! After two years of petitioning, surveys of public and businesses, applications for funding from Dudgeon, meetings with GYBC etc in order to install a boardwalk from the Beaconsfield Road slope, we find now that an almost complete brand new boardwalk has been constructed 100 yards further north at Salisbury Road.

Yarmouth gets a poor rail service


Winter Gardens in a bad state of repair

Thursday, January 5, 2017

I wonder just when the Winter Gardens will fall down. A number of us were looking at it over the holiday and we all agreed what a bad state of repair it was in. If it was to fall I wonder just where the borough council would stand as it is a grade two listed building. Would they get a fine? If so, I wonder if it would be more than it would have cost to repair it, then again it would fall on the rates.

On a regular basis, I have to make the nightmare trip of trying to get passed the Gapton retail park just to get on to the Gapton roundabout, so I can get to Norwich, Yarmouth or Lowestoft and then the return trip back to the Bradwell area is even worse.

Lay new A47 road on railway line


Two nice stories in last week’s Mercury. First was interesting comments from Bernhard Mabbett re First Bus and the Banana buses; the other was the lovely tale about the Danish MTB stranded on Scroby Sands in 1952 and how everyone came to the aid of the stranded seafarers.

Be optimistic on transformation


After the shift of the jet stream comes the next phase of circumstances which have already put in an appearance on the eastern side of America, as an Arctic vortex.

I was interested to read Peggotty’s memories of Gorleston’s Carnegie Library in last week’s Mercury, opened in the 1900s with a £2,000 gift from Scottish philanthropist Andrew Carngie. He gave away $350m and 660 Carnegie libraries were built.

Ferryman’s royal appointment


Me and my friend Lily would like to stop a problem that won’t go away. Dogs are a great pet to have. Having a dog can be hard work, you have to feed them, walk them and most important, pick up their poo!

The letter in last week’s Mercury in respect of the cafe in St Georges Park, Great Yarmouth, hit the nail right on the head. It’s an ill conceived eyesore.

Change mindset, potential is here


The man standing outside the Clipper Schooner (Peggotty, Mercury September 16) is Thomas Lake and he is I believe my great grandfather. After he died his wife Georgenna ran the pub. They didn’t marry until 1909, when her first husband died, but we believe Thomas Lake was the father of my grandfather, Thomas Turrell.
