Breckland Council runs a Mobile Food Store, providing residents with food at subsided prices. Councillor Lynda Turner (Breckland Council) in association with the Parish Council is trying to get the Store to Scarning to help residents. The route is currently full, but will be reviewed in the autumn. In the meantime, residents can use the bus at any of its current stops. You just need to prove you live in Breckland and pay £3 to join. For more information please visit Breckland's website and search Mobile Food Store for locations. 

The Council has installed a new beacon in the layby with the Village sign. The beacon has been provided by local firm, Bunnings of Gressenhall and the concrete has been supplied by TBL Concrete Ltd of Shipdham. The Parish Council is grateful for their support.
