TREVOR HEATON, EDP Whats On Editor

Combining fund-raising for an excellent cause with a night of Norfolk comedy and song is a great way to spend an evening – and so it proved at Bodham on Saturday.

Keith Skipper and his Press Gang partners put together the evening of squit and song which was fully appreciated by a packed audience.

The event was organised to raise funds for the EDP's We Care appeal.

An unusual feature of the evening was a tongue-in-cheek version of the panel game favourite Call My Bluff, with Bodham and We Care teams battling over definitions of such Norfolk phrases as “crotch-trolling” (a sort of pike fishing, seeing as you're asking).

The fun was interspersed with witty Norfolk songs by Cromer's Danny Platton and comic turns from Pat Nearney (“the Norfolk Nut”), the Boy Jimma (Tony Clarke), and on home soil Mik Godfrey.

The evening concluded with a singing of that Norfolk national anthem Have Yew Got a Loight, Boy?

Well, it just had to be didn't it?
