Postwick Hub Work
Work has started on the new roundabout at the top of Oaks Lane. Re-opening of the road was scheduled for the new year – watch this space (that space?) for updates.
Village Hall Car Park Extension
A big thank you to Balfour Beatty for the construction of the extension to the Village Hall car park, which they have carried out generously at their expense, in recognition of the disruption and inconvenience we are all suffering due to the Hub work. This will ease the parking situation greatly. Particular thanks to Jamie Haywood for his help in this matter.
Older residents will be sorry to learn that Arthur Gunton, who lived most of his life in Postwick at Rosary House, 19 Church Road, passed away on Nov 3rd in a Wroxham nursing home where he had been living recently with his wife, Thelma, to whom he was devoted. He was 98 years old. Arthur joined the army before WW2, was badly injured & captured by the Germans at Dunkirk, and then spent a harrowing five years as p-o-w; an ordinary man who lived through & survived an extraordinary wartime experience.
Postwick Village Screen – Projectionists Needed
We are looking into having a Village Screen on a Friday Night at Postwick Village Hall. We will be using professional equipment and are looking for parishioners to get involved in this. If you are interested please email Su via web site contact page. You will have to complete a free two hour course.
Village Christmas Card
As previously mentioned, this is the 10th year of the Village Christmas Card, and this time the printing cost has been very generously sponsored by Caroline and Richard Clover of Clover Greetings, Acle; Blofield Farm Shop of Leisure Village, Blofield; and NHV, Norwich Airport. Please acknowledge if you see them!
Postwick Green Group Tree Planting
On Saturday 8th November twenty Postwickians and residents from other villages turned out to plant some low-growing native species of trees round Postwick Recreation Ground. It was good to see so many give up part of their Saturday morning for such a worthwhile activity and a jolly time was had by all. Thanks to the Woodland Trust who donated the trees and all who took part. Special thanks to Lloyd Southon and Jeremy Halls for their advice.
