    NEW! - Nominate your

    Those of us that live in Thetford know that we have a very vibrant community and we have many local residents that go that extra distance to support community life in the town. The About Thetford magazine has long strived to showcase what fantastic community spirit exists with pages and pages of local news, events and information. Starting in January, we would like to feature a different community hero each month to recognise those people that so often go unrecognised for their efforts - and we need your help!

    We are asking our readers to nominate someone that you feel should be recognised as a community hero. Someone who you believe works hard to support community life, or perhaps goes that extra mile. Someone who perhaps cares for an elderly neighbour, or runs a local voluntary group. All you need to do is to write to us, either by letter or via email and outline why you think this person should be nominated.

    Were delighted that Thetford Garden Centre have agreed to sponsor this initiative and the hero chosen each month will be entitled to spend 50 with an advertiser of their choice from that months magazine. Shane Hinkley speaking on behalf of Thetford Garden Centre said; Thetford Garden Centre understand how important our community is in Thetford and its fantastic that our local heroes will be recognised in this way

    So, its over to you! send you nominations to Community Hero, About Thetford Magazine C/o 21 Crecy Mews, Thetford, IP24 2ZB or e-mail:

    [email protected]

    Nominations must be received by the 20th of each month

    Fee Fi Fo Fum, come to the panto

    for lots of fun!

    Its Panto time again (oh yes it is!)

    Thetford Players bring Ben Crockers Jack & the Beanstalk to life at the Carnegie Room. Due to popular demand we have increased the number of performances this year to six, including a second matinee show. Performances are listed on the advert to the right.

    Join Jack from the dairy (Emma Patrick); his mum Dame Madonna Trot (Tim Lovejoy); cowman Simple Simon (Jade Balmer); Merrydales King Betram (Phil Pearson) and Flunkit his Royal Flunky (Liz Staight) as they go on an adventure to rescue Princess Demelza (Charlie Wilson) from the clutches of the Giant (Stuart Wright) and his sidekick, Slimeball (Mark Robin-son). Helping them along their way is Edena the Eco-Fairy (Nicola Kurn). And of course, no Jack & the Beanstalk panto would be complete without a cow, Daisy (Bobbie-Jo Wilson and Chloe Robinson).

    With a chorus of new and familiar faces the show promises to be another spectacular of fabulous costumes and live music. Rehearsals are well underway, so book now to avoid disappointment! Tickets available from Leaping Hare.

    Tickets on sale now!!Contact Leaping Hare on 01842 751975 or visit

    We are delighted that thanks to funding from Shadwell through Norfolk Community Foundation we are able to offer two signed performances for the deaf on Friday 16 Jan and Sat 17 Jan matinee.
