Lending library:
The Telephone Box which the Parish Council purchased from BT for the princely sum of £1 has been re-assigned - as a lending library.

You are invited to borrow books and DVDs but please return them for others to borrow - or swap books if you wish. Keeping the stock turning over will ensure that there will be something new for you to borrow.
Thanks are due to Roger Bland who has fitted out the box for which a new role had been sought.

The case for adding footpaths to the definitive map, which was the subject of a Public Inquiry, has been lost.

Just Dual it!

Norfolk County Council is campaigning for the dualling most of the Norfolk end of the A47 and recently announced that the road would be dualled between Tuddenham and Norwich.

When I contacted them to ask whether West Norfolk was being considered, the Communications team replied that they needed the public to add pressure to help them get more funding for this part of the county. They sent me some postcards for people to fill in and return to them. No doubt many people will want to express the urgent need for a bypass. The postcards are available at East Winch Post Office and at reception in the Borough Council office, and if anyone in Middleton would like some to hand around I will happily deliver some to them.

Littering and dog fouling survey

THIS SURVEY is now closed

A borough-wide review of dog fouling and littering is being undertaken to gain a full picture of where there are problem spots and how much of a problem it really is.

An online survey has been produced for residents, town and parish councils, schools and businesses to complete

www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay to provide your comments.

Cllr Ian Devereux, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "We get a lot of anecdotal information about dog fouling and littering, so we are hoping that by asking specific questions about locations and times of offences we can start to identify where resources need to be targeted and also what local people can do to help.

"The more surveys that are completed, the better the picture we will get, so I would urge everyone to fill in the form, tell us what's happening in their area, and provide specific locations where possible."

The survey is open until the end of July - NOW CLOSED -

After that the results will be analysed and a report prepared for consideration by the council's Environment and Community panel.
