Another fabulous bout of weather added to the enjoyment for those attending the first of this year's Norton Light Railway event.  The railway was, unfortunately, beset by derailments and track problems on the Saturday so we only managed one ride that day.  Oh dear, we had to go back again on the Sunday to get in a few more railway journeys.  It was well worth making the effort and both days were really memorable for myself and my boys.
The Norton Hill Light Railway is housed at
Hall Farm, Old Church Road, Snettisham, Norfolk.
 This lovely little railway usually opens to the public on three weekends
 over the school summer holidays.
Each weekend raises  money for different charitable causes.
 This year the scheduled dates are 29 & 30 July, 12 & 13 August
(in aid of Campaign Care '94 and Duke of Edinburgh Award)
 and 26 & 27 August (hosted by Kings Lynn Lions Club). 
 So far we have managed to return to enjoy a repeat visit on
 Sunday, 13 August (and no problems were encountered)
and hopefully may even go again over the
 late August bank holiday weekend when it is due to run again.
The July weekend was hosted by the Rotary Club of Hunstanton & District  who raised funds for Snettisham Salvation Army (catering equipment), the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and The Lavender Hill Mob Drama Club (who need space in the Hunstanton Town Hall) and the amount raised overall
(29 & 30 July) was around 5,000.
