The Playground at Town Close remains closed
until further notice.


06 June 2020.

Borough Council virus update.  The Playground at Town Close.

The council is issuing a plea to local residents not to remove signs or tape from play
areas as the Government Guidance is still that they should remain closed.

The Government released restrictions a few weeks ago on football pitches, tennis
courts and multi-use games areas so that people could play sport with people in their
family and one other person.  Now this has been extended to up to six people as long
as social distancing is maintained.  However, the restrictions on play areas with play
equipment, including outdoor gyms and parkour areas, remain.

If anyone notices that a play area has had signs removed please report it to
cleanup@west-norfolk.gov.uk so that signage or locks can be replaced.

Gatherings of people who are not from the same household and not socially distanced should be reported to the police using the 101 non emergency number.


All Meetings have been suspended until further notice.  SEE MORE ABOUT THIS HERE

The situation has been updated - May 2020   See latest information


A heart defribrillator has been installed at the Village Hall.
It is mounted on the end wall of the Hall - facing the road.
The yellow box is clearly visible and the defribrillator is available to use as necessary.

Guidance on how to use the machine are displayed on it.
The machine is safe to use & makes a diagnosis as to whether or not it is necessary to 'shock' a patient.
Note that if a patient is conscious, breathing, talking, the defribrillator is not required. Its purpose is to re-start a heart that has stopped beating. If you are unable to discern a heartbeat then use the machine.

HOWEVER, even if you get it wrong, because the machine makes the diagnosis,
you cannot cause harm to a patient when using it.
