It’s that time of year when children and parents are suffering the stresses and strains of exam time. Revision timetables; quotes and notes attached to mirrors and walls; exam dates circled in red on the calendar – it is a horrible time to be a 16 or 18-year-old.

That’s Entertainment with Andy Tyler

Attendance at outdoor events has certainly been boosted by the excellent weather lately (as suggested in last week’s column), so I was pleased to attend the ‘Picnic in the Park’ event last weekend held on The Walks celebrating – and remembering – the life and work of murdered MP Jo Cox. She would have relished the opportunity members of local communities had to come together all over the country and share refreshments and good company.

It was certainly a tonic seeing plenty of people enjoying themselves at the recent King’s Lynn Lions Fun Day at The Walks – and although the weather has been changeable lately, I think the forecasts bode well for future outdoor events.

A few weeks ago, I took part in the Pedal Norfolk cycling festival at Holkham Hall. What a fabulous event. More than 3,000 people took part in races and fun events that ranged from seven-mile family rides through to 100-mile road races and a gruelling three-hour mountain bike race around the grounds of the hall.

Is there anywhere better than West Norfolk in the summer? Fish and chips on Hunstanton beach, Festival Too on the Tuesday Marketplace in King’s Lynn and a whole host of other great events across the summer months – most of them, I hasten to add, for free.

General Election Count  for NWN and SWN at Lynnsport King's Lynn

Purfleet, by Allister Webb, June 13, 2017

So where do we go from here exactly?

The election that was meant to give Theresa May the mandate she allegedly needed to negotiate Brexit has instead left us with a weak, minority administration, propped up by a handful of Northern Ireland Unionists, at least until we go to the polls again.

I am a chid of the 60s. Well, to be more accurate, I was born in the 1960s. In fact, I was born in 1960, which was probably before the ‘Sixties’ had properly been invented.

Manchester. The scene of the latest, mindless terror attack to hit the streets of the UK. Twenty two people needlessly murdered and scores of others injured. I was making my way back from Carrow Road following the Norfolk Senior Cup Final between King’s Lynn and Fakenham, when I started getting alerts. It’s a stark reminder that acts of terror can happen anywhere, at any time and to anyone.
