Postwick Hub Work
Only a couple of months to go…?
Park & Ride
Konect buses has taken over the franchise for the Postwick Park & Ride service (503), which now routes via Thorpe Rail Station to Castle Meadow and Norwich Bus Station. The service continues on to County Hall Monday to Friday only.
Postwick Coffee Shop
Postwick Coffee Shop is on Tuesday mornings at the Village Hall between 10.30 and 12.00 noon. All welcome.
The mobile library stops at the village hall on alternate Tuesdays throughout the year, from 11.05 to 12.00 noon.
Please support the Library Bus, and you can always call in at the hall for coffee & cake and a chat (as above). Forthcoming dates: 6/10; 20/10; 3/11; 17/11; 1/12.
Dog Owner’s Responsibilities
After a period of improvement, there has been a decline in the number of owners who are clearing up after their dogs on the Village Hall field. A recent football match required the pitch to be cleared before the match could be started. This is not acceptable. Please could all dog owners ensure this does not happen again and clear any fouling by their dogs. A “name-and-shame” item in the newsletter could be introduced for those who are witnessed not taking their responsibility seriously.
A community choir in Blofield is looking for new members. Suzanne Williams writes: “It’s funny how after a tiring day, I can go and sing in the evening and leave feeling energised and relaxed…Why not come and check us out at a free session? We meet most Wednesdays at 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Blofield Scout Hut on Yarmouth Road. We sing a range of songs, which are taught by ear, often supplemented with the music or website or CD recording.”
For more details, call Suzanne on (Private / See Paper Copy) or check the website – search for Hemblington Harmony.
Following the Festival in July, a donation was made to EACH. Details of this are displayed in the Village Hall.
