Joyce proves you are never too old to keep fit

Joyce Irvine proved you are never too old to keep fit as she celebrated her 90th birthday with friends at a seated exercise class held in Sheringham Library. 

Joyce was surprised by her friends and fellow exercise class members who organised a celebration with chocolate cake, music and party hats, although she nearly uncovered the surprise when she arrived at the Library earlier than expected to return some books!

As a founder member of the class, Joyce has been enjoying the benefits of seated exercise since the class was set up by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) in 2015 as part of its Sports Hubs and Clubs programme. The 45-minute session is designed for those who like to keep fit and enjoy a gentle workout while sitting down, and it is regularly attended by up to 15 members.

In the past year NNDC’s Environmental Services Team has supported 107 community litter collection events, helping keep our beaches, towns and villages clear of rubbish.

The Council support came in the form of rubbish bags, bin bag hoops and litter pickers loaned to local groups, as well as picking up the litter that is collected for free.

In 2016 NNDC worked with schools and local groups from across the district to help them look after the environment, and helped North Norfolk join in the Great British Spring Clean and Clean for the Queen campaigns.

North Norfolk officially is the District with the best beaches in England, with no fewer than six of its beaches being awarded prestigious Blue Flags.

East Runton and West Runton beaches have joined Cromer, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Sheringham in the top tier of English beaches.

The awards are given out only to those beaches that have the highest quality of water, facilities, environmental education and management, with superb levels of cleanliness and safety. The only other district that has six Blue Flags is Thanet.

The handover paves the way for a newly redeveloped TIC and toilet facilities and improved opening hours and has offered NNR the opportunity to shape how local services are run.

NNR submitted a Localism Act Expression of Interest to the Council to provide and manage the Sheringham Tourist Information Centre and the public toilets at Station Approach, Sheringham.
