Postwick Hub Work
Oaks Lane is now closed for a period of five months. The pedestrian/cycle path from just past the railway bridge on Oaks Lane up to the Park & Ride roundabout is not yet open (despite assurances that it would be!), but should open approx 26 Aug.
Anglian Water Bore Hole Works
The closure of Ferry Lane, in order to run a pipeline from the new bore hole works down to the river, will now take place in the last week of October. It will last two or three days and mean Ferry Lane is closed from the far side of the cricket ground and round over the hump-backed railway bridge up to the Brundall Low Road junction. Fear not! – Church Road through the village will not close – some confusion caused by the contractors looking at the map upside down!
Use it or Lose it!
Please for more villagers to use the bar on Fridays and Sundays have had sadly little effect. Proceeds from the bar operation are used for the running of the village hall and improvements (N.B. work on the new doors is in progress and they should be installed sometime in the autumn). If there is a drop in bar operating profits, it may not be possible to host other events – a vicious circle of decline – and a charge may have to be made our on Council Tax in order to run the Village Hall. Aaagh! Postwick Expects That Every Man (And Woman) Will Do His/Her Duty!
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? (And some coffee?)
Welcome home, Su, after your recent op. We wish you a speedy return to full working order. Your absence around the village has been very noticeable and missed!
Disturbance at Village Hall Car Park
Complaints have been made by residents living near the village hall, regarding noise late at night in the hall car park. This has been reported to Community Police Officers, who have already increased patrols to the area.
Paul the Postie
Paul has sent a ‘thank-you’ card regarding his farewell party and gifts. This can be seen on the noticeboard in the village hall. Apologies from Dottie Herring, who had a chew of the card since there have been no biscuits from Richard, the new postman.
