Oh FGS... "Attleborough Norfolk is in the middle of a Santa War"
/2 The festive feud started when one of them, Mitchell Scott - who also works as a maintenance engineer for the EACH children's hospice - was asked to play the role of Santa at the fair, as he did last year.
/3 However, he was already booked to perform a similar duty at the same time, so turned down the job.
In his absence, a second Santa, Jonathan Lewis, who works in the motorsport industry, stepped forward to take on the task.

Righty-ho. That's Sunday dinner on. Roast chicken with veg - Mashed Neeps and nips today, along with roasted radishes, stuffing, cauliflower in a brassica medley (cauliflower, its leaves, white cabbage and Nero black Kale) on a low oven + a lidded roasting tin it will take 2 hrs
The veg is cooked on a gas camping stove. Bring to the boil and turn off and leave to cook on its own 😉👍
I went to buy #onions for the stuffing today but it seems that theres a #Norfolk #foodshortage again. #EFFingCrisis #Drivershortage #fuel #CostOfLivingCrisis
I only posted this as a cover to moan about the fact you can't buy #onions here again at the moment LOL

#EastAnglia #care-plan doomed without 10 times the money
The depth of the crisis in adult social care means the government's announced 'Plan for Patients' will struggle to make a difference. #healthcare #NHS #GiveUsACoffeyBreak #TrussFails

/2 Health Secretary #ThérèseCoffey has announced a £500 Million fund to help #patients leave #hospital this coming #winter. Across the country, thousands of elderly patients who are medically fit wait days and sometimes weeks to be discharged from hospital.
/3 The hold-up is usually a failure to organise the next stage of their #care.

The issue is with the #adultsocialcare sector which is in crisis due to a severe shortage of #staff, with a recent Guardian report identifying over 165,000 vacancies.

Limbo over thousands of #homes continues, but #Truss pledges to end it
"Nutrient neutrality" AKA raw #sewage.
#Norfolk MP #LizTruss has signalled, if she becomes #PrimeMinister, she would #scrap nutrient neutrality requirement blocking housing building.

/2 Councils in #Norfolk have been unable to approve plans for new homes within the catchment areas of the #RiverWensum and #Broads since March.
That was when government advisor #NaturalEngland said councils could not approve plans involving 'overnight accommodation',
/3 until they could prove they would not lead to more nutrients (#sewage) flowing into #waterways.
Such nutrients reduce oxygen in the water and make it harder for aquatic species to survive.

/2 Post-Brexit immigration rules and the war in Ukraine have restricted the traditional flow of seasonal workers from eastern Europe, forcing some growers to seek workers from as far afield as #Nepal.

Pecksniff's diary: East Anglian Bylines

#BuildingInFocus A cobbled #Norfolk alley shelters England’s last surviving Hanseatic warehouse. 'Hanse House' was a trading post for the Hanseatic League - a confederation of #medieval merchants. Built in 1475, when #KingsLynn was England's most important port... 🧵

📷 SPAB
In 1505, 40+ German merchants were trading raw materials and luxury goods out of Lynn. But in 1561 they began to lease the buildings to local families. In 1751, a wealthy brewer purchased the complex, adding a Georgian townhouse... 🧵

The townhouse saw many uses: girls’ school (from 1880); surgeon's house (1891) & #WWI army officers' quarters. It previously housed @NorfolkCC, who restored ity in 1969 & secured Grade I listing in 1972. The complex now houses a variety of businesses.

@NorfolkCC current Local Transport Plan had remarkable ambition in 2011 for #Norfolk to be seen as a leader in carbon reduction, nationally & internationally

Yes, really😄 👇

Spoiler - don't trust the large parties

So what has happened?

Absolute carbon emissions have increased over the 2011-2018 period in every #Norfolk district for both A-roads and Minor-roads (except for A-roads for Norwich)

Here are minor roads against national trends

We sequenced 1500 people with Coronavirus in #Norfolk over the 1st wave & have a paper out today with lots of interesting findings: medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
We found 100 different lineages in circulation in Norfolk, a region of about 1 million people.
Interestingly we found 16 lineages in healthcare workers (& families) which were not observed in patients or in community care. This indicates infection control measures were working.

#NovaScotia #gold won first prize at the Jamestown Exhibition in 1907!
The Exposition – a 7-month fair – celebrated the 300th anniversary of the founding of #Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America.

#NovaScotia’s #gold exhibit won a top prize and the province’s participation at the event garnered much praise. According to the Irvington Gazette, #NS’s display at the exposition included an impressive collection of “precious and economic minerals of the country with...

My favourite image from an extraordinary sunset at Snettisham Beach #Norfolk a couple of weeks ago. But I must show you the sequence of moments that came before and after this too: a thread
The show began when the sand was bathed in a golden orange light
Looking behind me the sky glowed from cool to warm with rare lilac hues

@gelibolu2015 seeing as you asked me, & for the benefit of @TGTandV here's my review on this new book by Neil Storey, published by @penswordbooks which I hope you'll all read to the end...
...This book offers nothing new by way of new evidence towards the fate of the 5th Norfolks at Kuchuk Anafarta Ova on 12 Aug 15 . Neil Storey is good at writing stories. His books are always well written and full of nostalgia when it comes to Norfolk...
...The first three chapters of his book follow that route when he looks at aspects of Norfolk prior to WW1, how the Territorial Force was formed and then looks at the Sandringham Company prior to the declaration of war...

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

Well @GovernorVA you vetoed the bill that tried to avoid crimes like this thanks to #SanctuaryCity this alienillegal was released by an immigration judge despite @ICEgov having him custody and now he’s a murderer you must be so proud @MarkWarner @timkaine #VoteDemocratsOut
Shameful really he should’ve stayed in custody for attempting to kill his wife or been deported because HE WAS NOT HERE LEGALLY but this is what Blue states want🤷🏼‍♀️BTW he was also a #DREAMER the family of the man that died should sue #Norfolk
