Dog Fouling

Happy to report that the playing fields show signs of improvement.  However, there are still offenders…

All Change!


Just when you thought you’d got to grips with the P & R timetable, it’s changed.  The Number 5 now goes alternately  to and from Theatre Street and St Stephens Street, via Castle Meadow and the Rail Station.  Keeps us all on our toes! Good news – the service continues to approx 8pm. Check details at :

Village Social Club

The number of villagers coming to the bar on Friday and/or Sunday has dwindled again. Without further support this club event won’t survive.  The bar is open on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons (see bottom of the next column). If you’re new to the village, come and give it a try and meet some of the friendly faces.  If you’re not new, come and learn the names to go with those faces at last!  Prices of drinks  are ridiculously cheap, as well…

Recent Events

Friends of Postwick Church report that the Rumble in the Jumble made £230 for the church Fabric Fund, which was pleasing.   Thanks go to everyone who came on the Friday night to help set it up and who turned up on Saturday to help and buy. 

Quiz & Chips on 25 March –  a good turnout – 13 teams Further details next time

Dog Fouling

Unpleasant to report: there has been an increase in dogs fouling the playing field behind the Village Hall in recent months. Dog owners: please be responsible – there are two dog bins to leave bags in. It seems worse on and around the football pitch. As we have two boys teams playing on here, it’s not very pleasant that before the match, parents & coaches are having to check the pitch for suspect packages!

Sing up!

Sow a new seed.

Spring is the perfect time for sowing.

That could be a seed for a new activity. If you enjoy singing, why not give your local Community Choir a try. We’re a friendly group who sing for pleasure. All music is taught by ear and there are no auditions. We sing every Wednesday evening at the Blofield Scout Hut in Central Blofield. No fee for trial session and thereafter subs are £10 per half term. For more information, check our website: http://villagevoices1.wixsite.com/choir

Recent  Events

Friends of Postwick Church News
On 3rd December we had our Christmas Bazaar which went well and we raised £530 for the church fabric fund.  Thanks to all who worked so hard that weekend and our customers of course.

Also – it may not have escaped the notice of those who walk through the churchyard that our 150 year-old cedar tree, which was covered in ivy,  was felled in September.   There is a lot of wood there for the taking and if anyone cares to make a small donation to the church that would be appreciated.
