George Newman was born in 1931 at number 6, Stubb Road, Hickling. The ninth of ten children, he was the first baby to be born in the new council houses.
The great love of his life was football, which he blamed for the fact that he never married!
Apart from a spell in the army, he spent most of his working life doing local seasonal agricultural jobs.
He also worked for a while on the sea walls at Bacton and Caister - hazardous areas due to the presence of anti-tank mines laid during the war.
