Postwick Coffee Shop

Postwick Coffee Shop is on Tuesday mornings at the Village Hall between 10.30 and 12.00 noon . The coffee shop ladies are still looking for someone willing to join them on the rota.   If you would like to know more about what is involved,  please contact Sandra  or Su (See Paper version).

Bridge Closure!

Don’t forget that the old bridge across the A47 will be closed for 4 days from 1 Dec!  For the duration, enjoy the scenic route over the new bridge and up to the start of the NDR  (A1194 Broadland Way, Poppy Way, Broadland Gate Link, A1270 Link Road).

Postwick Christmas Card

Julie Woods writes: I hope you all like the Christmas card this year. The children in India have really enjoyed painting the design. After Christmas if you don’t want to keep it please let me have it to reuse for the church another time. (e.g. Bring to the Coffee Shop?)

A very big thank you to Kevin and Debbie Robotham for sponsoring the cost of the painting. A very generous and appreciated donation.

Recent Events

Quiz & Chips on 11 November was a great success, with 14 teams participating. A fortnight before the event, only one team had registered, giving the organisers a nasty attack of palpitations.  Please book early next time!
