George Newman

​

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.
