Request for photos of Fleggburgh

As many of you will be aware, the Parish Council is currently involved in putting together a neighbourhood plan for the Parish of Fleggburgh. One thing which would improve the neighbourhood development plan would be photographs of Fleggburgh.

Does anyone have any photos of “penny loaves” on Main Road in Fleggburgh, the Plantation at Tower Road, and also Billockby and Clippesby churches? If so, please could you send them to the Clerk for possible inclusion in NDP documents.

The Clerk’s e-mail address is [email protected]

Celebrate VE Day 75th Anniversary at Home

The Royal British Legion is calling on people across the UK to join in a moment of Reflection and Remembrance at 11:00am on Friday 8th May, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, and pause for a Two Minute Silence. I hope that we will all support this aspect of VE Day from the safety of our homes too.

From the comfort of your armchair,  you can all take part in the following;

11:15am – VE Day 75 Livestream: There will be a live stream on either the British Legion’s website or their facebook page. The show will bring the World War Two generation together with today’s generation to chat about their shared experiences.

08:00pm – An evening of Memories and Music on BBC One

09:00pm – A UK-Wide Singalong: A rendition of Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’

VE Day Resources for Home: The British Legion have created resources for parents and carers, specially designed for home learning. They are aimed at 7-14 year olds and include family-friendly activities and support for you when talking to your child/children about VE Day and Remembrance. For more information, see the British Legion website;

Collections of Garden Waste

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is to resume fortnightly collections of garden waste, from Monday, May 11, following a review of staff availability with its operational partner, GYB Services Ltd.

The brown bins scheme was postponed temporarily on March 30 in order to allow crews to prioritise collections of black/grey general rubbish bins, green recycling bins and clinical waste.

Garden waste collection is an opt-in paid-for scheme, so customers’ subscriptions have been extended to account for the loss of collections. In addition, on this one occasion, customers can leave out excess garden waste for collection alongside their brown bin, providing there are no large branches and it is presented in a plastic bucket, dust-bin or other rigid container that crews can lift and tip. Garden waste in bags cannot be accepted as this will contaminate the load.

Covid-19 advice

Local health leaders urge people to keep up the fight against coronavirus by staying at home.

The NHS in Norfolk and Waveney is encouraging local people to keep up the fight against coronavirus (Covid-19) by following the latest Government advice and staying at home.

A new Government campaign launched this week called Stay Home, Save Lives which reinforces the single most important action we can now all take, in fighting coronavirus – is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

Dr Anoop Dhesi, a GP at Stalham and Chair of NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We’re asking everyone to help save lives, by staying at home because anyone can spread coronavirus.

“Only leave your home to shop for basic necessities, to pick up medicine or to provide care to those who need it or to exercise once a day, alone or with members of your household.

“Only travel to work when you absolutely cannot work from home.

“If you have to go out for any of these reasons always stay two metres apart.

“Do not meet others outside your household; even friends and family. The message is simple stay home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.”

It comes as letters are sent to vulnerable patients urging them to shield themselves from the virus by staying at home and avoiding face-to-face contact for the next 12 weeks.

The letters provide information about accessing health and social care during this time and extra support available for them, their families and carers.

All those who receive a letter are encouraged to register now by going to www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable or call 0800 028 8327, the Government’s dedicated helpline.

Phoning someone could reduce their sense of isolation

With the coronavirus outbreak unfolding, now could be a good time to pick up the phone and call someone to see how they are.

Sometimes just a friendly voice on the phone is enough to help someone.
