The Ispolen makes a reappearance


One of the more famous rescues carried out by the Henry Ramey Upcher Fishermen’s Lifeboat was of the brig Ispolen in 1897.

The remains of the wreck are occasionally exposed by storms and tides to public view.

The latest exposure was on 29 October 2018 and photographs are shown below. There was a big storm in December 2013 which took away some of the timbers but it appears that since that catastrophic event even more timbers have been lost.

Art Exhibition 2018

This year’s art exhibition was opened by the Mayor of Sheringham, Councillor Mrs Madeleine Ashcroft on the evening of 16th August when a preview was held for members and invited guests. The raffle prize was generously donated by Tony Purdy. By the time the exhibition closed on the 28th August, 55 pictures had been sold – another very successful outcome attesting to the high standard of the works on display.

Any profit made (initial estimates are that it will be about £800) will be donated to this year’s chosen charities, Macmillan Nurses and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Photographs are from the Preview Evening.
