Thanks to Boxtree Productions for a great performance of The Legend of King Arthur, all the helpers and to you for coming.
Yes, we are in the final 4 shortlist for the BEST Coffee/Tea Shop in Norfolk. We can’t believe it. Fingers crossed while the judges come and secretly taste our cakes, building up to the award ceremony in September.
Whether we win or not, to reach the final 4 is a well deserved accolade to our brilliant team of bakers and our café volunteers who dedicate their time and enthusiasm creating delicious crepes and cakes, teas and coffees, all served with chatty good humour.
Doubtless the amazing cakes and bakes swung the customers’ vote. Learn more about them, the bakers behind the aprons and the brief history of this little gem of a café in our just published Cook Book…(which is selling like…er…hot cakes!
You can buy the book online, in the cafe and in Jarrolds.

SPONSOR A BRIDGE PLANK
Be part of the story of North Lodge Park
At our AGM on April 24th, we launched a public appeal to raise money to enable us to complete the funding for the Playful Connection. Through your generosity and a substantiation contribution from Cromer Town Council we have half the £219,000 needed, We are also looking for grant funding, and by showing your support in the Plank Appeal this will help our application to grant funders.
From the Rusts Shelter and the two model yacht ponds to benches, plants, and equipment, North Lodge Park has benefited from donations since it opened in 1929. This appeal continues that tradition and gives you the opportunity to become part of the story of North Lodge Park.
You can donate any amount, and all donations of £90 and over will entitle the donor to a message etched onto a plaque on one of the planks. We’re hoping everyone will support the campaign – individuals, businesses, groups, families – let’s make it a real community project. Get together with your friends and colleagues, with your neighbours or with fellow volunteer groups.
What will your message be?
If this park could talk…
…what would it say?
The community hall is still out of action, so we have booked the PARISH HALL for this year’s AGM. As usual it’s not a traditional AGM, more a review of the year, a chance to get together to discuss the Park and to look ahead. The meeting will be on:
Wednesday 24th April, 7.30pm
We look forward to seeing you.
North Lodge Park Playful Connection
Our planning permission application for the playful connection project was approved in February, with a couple of conditions to be resolved and we have agreed outline terms for a 10 year lease on the land from NNDC. We are finalising some of the details of the project and are ready to share these with you at the AGM.
The are still lots of actions needed to pull the project together before we can start building – not least making sure we have all the money in place.
Through your commitment to the Park, and a significant contribution from Cromer Town Council, we already have over half the money in place, and will be looking for grants to cover much of the shortfall.
At the AGM we will be launching a public appeal to give the community the opportunity to sponsor the project and become part of the story of North Lodge Park.
