Thanks to Bob Catchpole for repairing the sculpture (again) after the deliberate damage this week; apologies to anyone who came to see it while it was away. We've had such a good response to the work in the restored Rose Garden, and Bob has been so understanding and helpful. We hope the perpetrators have had their fun and will now leave the sculpture for others to enjoy.

Susan Purser Hope, a Cromer based glass artist, has chosen the North Lodge Tea Rooms as her venue for Open Studios this year. Running from 27th May until the end of June, the show features two distinct ranges of wall hung work in fused glass. The first is a series of abstract landscape and seascapes inspired by Susan’s love of the Norfolk that she discovered when she moved here four years ago to fulfil a lifetime’s ambition to live by the sea.Susan’s other love is the extraordinary world of entertainment that she discovered in the area. As she explains, “I have always loved fairgrounds and circuses. So I was delighted to discover the wonders at Thursford and the delights of the water circus at the Hippodrome at Great Yarmouth. My favourite book is J. B. Priestley’s The Good Companions and it was amazing to find the End of Pier show at the Pavilion Theatre here in Cromer!” Examples of her circus images are also included in the exhibition. Sue, herself, will be in the cafe during the afternoon of Sunday 28th May.
