Use it or lose it
Over the last 12 months use of the Village Hall Bar has dropped on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. The situation is such that unless use picks up then the bar will have to close. This in turn will have a knock on effect on function booking income as it will no longer be viable to operate a bar just for specific events. At present the Social Club picks up most of the Village Hall’s running costs from income generated. This includes utilities, maintenance, much of the grass cutting and improvements. Please give it your support.
This is continuing to be monitored by our resident experts. We would ask residents to be vigilant when in and around the field and cricket pitch and report anyone seen failing to pick up after their dog or dropping/throwing poo bags other than in the bins provided.
Newsletter delivery volunteers
Sandra would like to thank the volunteers who have come forward to help spread the Newsletter delivery work load.
What a great Community Spirit there is in Postwick
Ann and John Brownlee would like to thank everyone in Postwick who helped out after Ann’s accident on 29 April. It was truly amazing what support a small village has for those not as fortunate as themselves. We really hope that this spirit is not lost and that we can continue to support one another.
Postwick Coffee Shop
Postwick Coffee Shop is on Tuesday mornings at the Village Hall between 10.30 and 12.00 noon. Why not come along for biscuits, cake and a chat.
Postwick Hub Work
The Parish Clerk will forward any Newsletters of work schedule by Norfolk County Council. Please email Su Parish Clerk (See Paper Version) if you have any queries or if you do not receive the Parish Minutes.
Postwick with Witton Annual Parish Meeting – 16 June
Well more than a man and his dog turned up to the Annual Parish Meeting of Postwick with Witton Parish Council on Monday 16 June. I think there was around 8, more than half of which were Parish Councillors. Not very encouraging for them considering they have been representing the village for the last 12 months on a voluntary basis.

Paul the Postie – 4 July
As you are all aware by now that Paul the Postie has had to leave us to do his duties elsewhere. We are, however, hoping to give him a good send off at the Village Hall on Friday 4 July – 7.30pm/8.00 ish.
We hope to surprise him with a Buffet and presentation as a result of all the money collected by Nadine. Please could you all put this date in your diaries, as it would be great to show him the villager’s appreciation for the great job he has done over the last few years. Please try and make it. Hopefully see you all there.
