Thank you to Norfolk County Council for the repair to the road surface by the car park/village hall. 

January 2024

On 22 & 23 February there will be no vehicular access to the Common car park/village hall site because Highways will be on site repairing the road surface. Please use the car park by the school instead. We apologise for any inconvenience.


Update on the road closure at Catbridge Lane - trees have bought down fibre optic cables. These need to be dealt with by Open Reach before Highways can assess the situation. Both parties are aware and are trying to resolve the problem.
