Violet’s cremation is to take place at Earlham Crematorium on Tuesday February 7th at 1:30pm.
Family flowers only, but, donations in memory of Violet can be given for the Alzheimer’s Society.
After the service family and friends are invited to the Honingham Buck for refreshments.
It has taken a lot of time and effort but I am very pleased to announce that The Honingham Defibrillator is up and running and going live this morning with the ambulance service.
The Defibrillator is situated as you drive into the Honingham Buck Car Park, on the wall on the right hand side in the entrance of the over spill car park on John Smiths office. A big yellow box, you can’t miss it.
Several Honingham residents have been trained to use this and administer CPR – however, don’t wait to contact one of these should you suspect someone is having a heart attack, just dial 999. Tell the operator you are in Honingham and know where the defibrillator is, the operator will give you a code to access the defibrillator. The defibrillator is so easy to use it talks you through what to do!
Further guidance to follow.
You kept that quiet, Paul Blyth!!!!! The “celebrity” for the official opening of the phone box………was……Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest!!! Paul had planned this, and had to keep it secret, since March of this year – well done Paul, excellent choice. Sadly the team on the Treasure Quest didn’t manage to get to Honingham in time for the 12pm deadline, but the radio car and presenters still came along after 12pm to open the box and broadcast the story of our phonebox. Bryan Web had organised his American Airforce friends to come along with some of their vintage vehicles, and Bryan also brought along his collection of old photographs of Honingham and the airfield during WW2. There were lots of scrummy home baked cakes along with teas, coffees and squash. A good time was had by all, and the donations for refreshments amounted to £112 – which is being given to the Village Hall funds. That total included a generous donation from The Buck – thank you!
There are several photo’s if you click here taken by Jerry Bart, of the event.
The Quiz Master from Radio Norfolk has sent Paul the following email:
Thank you so much for all of your help with Sunday’s Treasure Quest on BBC Radio Norfolk. I hope you enjoyed the experience. If you want to listen back to the show, its available for the next four weeks on the BBC iPlayer, at http://www.bbc.co.co.uk/programmes/p03rhxdn
I have also put up a photo gallery from the programme, which you can see here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03sy696/p03sy45k
I have visited the Buck several times. For me, the Guinness is superb, the staff are friendly, the decor is lovely, and the food is superb.
Every day I seem to meet villagers who say to me “I hear the prices are a bit steep” ” I hear the menu isn’t too good – none of the usual things” ” I hear the portions are a bit small” ” I hear the manager isn’t very friendly” “I don’t like the new sign” etc etc……
None of them have actually been in the place to form their own opinions. Might I suggest you take the chance to do so and see what it is like. It is a lovely place, and it is OUR pub. It is open. We are lucky to have it.
If you do have any gripes or suggestions about things then why not mention them to the staff. They are open to ideas and eager to please, and the menu is changing all the time.
Hope to see you in there sometime.
If you’re a fan of a REALLY good burger. Head down to the Buck and try one of theirs from the new menu. Both husband, Monty and myself can recommend them highly! (And the beer garden)
Our first visit since it re-opened and it’s looking lovely! A fine effort!
At last the Honingham Buck is open again. The pub has had a super makeover, but preserves its old charm.
Now with fully disabled access, and an interesting, reasonably priced menu. The management & staff are very friendly – especially to ‘Honinghamites’ !
They have a new website which shows all you need to now.
