Next Parish Council Meeting


The next Parish Council meeting will be an online meeting on 15 March (see agenda for full details) from 7.30pm. Please email or write to the clerk in advance of the meeting if you would like to join the meeting by no later than 5pm on 14 March.

We are pleased to announce that we have secured a match funding grant to replace the fencing around the small children's play area on the Water Meadows. The current wooden fencing will be replaced with new metal fencing and two new metal gates. The funding has been secured through Breckland Council's match funding scheme. The work will commence as soon as possible under the current restrictions.

We are pleased to announce that in accordance with Government guidelines, the play areas reopened on July 4. Please note that we are unable to regularly sanitise the equipment and the equipment has not been sterilised. We have erected signage advising all users to maintain social distance in accordance with Government guidelines and wash or sanitise their hands before and after using the equipment. Please note that under current guidance the Outdoor Fitness equipment at both areas has been closed off.
