SANDS UTD FC NORWICH is a new football club dedicated to supporting fathers, families and loved ones who have suffered the loss of a little one to SANDS - Stillbirth and Neonatal Death.

Having formed just this year as the only Rugby League club in Norfolk and Suffolk, things are looking very good for Anglian Vipers Rugby League. Based at Wymondham Rugby Club, who kindly agreed to host the Vipers, the club has played 5 matches so far. The results have been very much as expected as the team get used to a new code of rugby and train for a sport that requires a higher level of fitness than rugby union. At the moment the club sits at the top of the East Rugby League Premier Division which is a fantastic achievement for a new club. As a result of negotiations the league structure has been altered and extended giving the club an opportunity for more matches before playoff finals that should…

Anglian Vipers first win

Anglain Vipers, one of the newest Rugby League clubs in the UK, secured their first win of their short history with a great victory in the East RL Cup against well established side form North Hertfordshire Knights. The first half was a similar story to the previous two games played; giving possession away cheaply and conceding early tries. However, the Vipers are learning fast and in the second half they protected the ball, completed structured sets of 6 tackles and scored great tries with fast attacking rugby. The final score 48-38 reflected a game played in great spirit and refereed sensibly and fairly by the North Herts Coach due to a late notice of the "no show" of the official nominated by the RFL.

Anglian Vipers Rugby League is a new Rugby League club formed by Rob Humphries of WSX World Sports Exchange, Chris Wildish; former Naval Officer, Airline Captain and Author of “Please Don’t Cancel Christmas, Daddy” and Dave Parkin working for Deloitte in Norwich and a Rugby League player from Bath University and Silsden Storm. The gap in the provision of Rugby League was noticed by Rob and Chris over 2 years ago. Covid got in the way of the initial plan but when Dave joined in, it became apparent that there were 3 likeminded individuals with different complimentary talents and the enthusiasm (in spades) to start a Rugby League Club to cover Norfolk and Suffolk and give everyone in the area the opportunity to try this slick, fast, hard hitting, exciting…

A feel-good show of stage song and dance favourites is set to be performed by a troupe of talented young performers at Sheringham Little Theatre. A Celebration of Musical Theatre, running from April 14-16 at 7.30pm nightly, will see a cast aged eight to 16 showcase their stage skills. They are excited and eager to step back into the limelight for the first time in two years, after the traditional Easter musical Guys and Dolls was postponed and then cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. But the youngsters are aiming to come back with a bang with an hour-long show that will include hits from classic shows, including Guys and Dolls, as well as an introduction to some newer productions.

Cockerill back in 1888, refurbishment works on the dilapidated building which was once the ticket office at Wellesley Recreation Ground are now complete.
