Your Community needs you!
On 12th December when you go to cast your vote at Trimingham Hall, please give a thought to its predecessor, the Pilgrim Shelter.
The Pilgrim Shelter is a unique and cosy little building, an architectural one-off. It remains at the heart of Trimingham and deserves to find its feet now that Trimingham Hall has taken over most of its old functions. We think its time has come, though, courtesy of two very fortunate accidents of timing.
The Pilgrim Shelter is now a prominent and central point along the newly established Norfolk Coastal Path with many walkers passing its door – and within the last month it has also been set up as one of the Discovery Points for the Deep History Coast project which aims to focus interest on the prehistory of the North Sea. You can now visit the newly-erected Monoliths just outside the building and enjoy your lunch at one of the picnic tables installed there.
All we need now is volunteers from among Trimingham residents to bring the Pilgrim Shelter into its new life as an informal locally-run café. Making hikers and visitors welcome by serving coffee, biscuits and cakes for an hour or two on an occasional weekend is what we have in mind.
When you vote, you will have the chance to register an interest in joining a rota of volunteers. And if hard physical work is more in your line, then there’s plenty to do strimming and digging and cutting back to keep this important meeting-place neat and cared-for. We’re interested in setting up a work party – so be prepared to volunteer!
You’ll have your chance on December 12th!
