The tortoise reported missing in May from north Starston is still on the run!  If you have acquired a stray tortoise since May Sylvia would love to hear from you on 07944238050, or contact Sue on 852387 or pigeonpost19@gmail.com

A villager has been attacked and bitten by a dog running loose in Bunns Lane.

People, especially those with children, are advised to take great care.

Have you lost a peacock? One has taken up residence in a north Starston garden. If you know who it might belong to, or if you would be prepared to give it a home, please contact Sue or Ralph on 01379 852387 (leave your name and number if the answerphone is on).

South Norfolk Council have a an event taking place in Wymondham on the 1 September 2019.  The Black Knight Historical will be re-enacting the Kett’s Rebellion and will be demonstrating skills such as cookery and tool making of the Tudor period.  There will also be plenty of stalls with local produce and food and drink, as well as a funfair. Please see the promotional poster.

NCC have recommended Option C, a new 3.9 mile dual carriageway road, as the best overall solution and preferred route for the Norwich Western Link.

Option C would link from the roundabout at the western end of Broadland Northway and extend for around 350 metres along the A1067 Fakenham Road before turning in a south-westerly direction via a new junction. It would link to the A47 via a new junction at Wood Lane (B1535), which forms part of Highways England’s plan to dual the A47 between North Tuddenham and Easton.
