Stormin Norman on fire

By Danny Caro, August 26, 2010

This season has been very sporting for batsmen and bowlers cricket-wise. A few dry, hot weeks have been combined with some very wet ones.

But nothing could not stop Norman Marine, anything but a fair-weather bowler, from almost putting himself into the history books after another demon spell.

Representing Old Cholmeleians 2nd, 'Stormin' Norman terrorised the batsmen of Potters Bar 3rd. He played the lead role, finishing with figures of 8.2-4-7-6 as Bar were dismissed for a paltry 23 in the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League.


Potters Bar synagogue is up for sale

By Jay Grenby, September 26, 2008

Potters Bar and Brookmans Park Synagogue has put its premises up for sale for £850,000.

The site includes a small one-storey building on the Great North Road at Bell Bar and an adjoining four-bedroomed bungalow, home to part-time rabbi Adam Hill and his family.

In its place, the 85-member family congregation is seeking a home in a more central location, preferably in Potters Bar itself, some three miles down the road. A committee led by board member Malcolm Ginsberg believes that a better positioned shul will attract new members.
