Broadband News (From Adrian)
Update 26/08/2015: BT Fibre Van spotted in village. Working around box 13.
None as of yet keep checking your postcode with the link below. I was informed by a council BB rollout representative that it will be by the end of September. When you get an AO on your postcode results you have availability.
Newletter from Michael Austen thanks Mike.
Postwick Hub Work
A long-lost route to the village of Postwick has been rediscovered – Oakes Layne. Surviving residents tell of a hellish life during the long siege cut off from Sainsbury’s and the rest of the western world…The end is in sight, but prepare yourselves for further disruption when traffic lights are installed at the new mega-junction.
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: 25/8; 8/9; 22/9; 6/10; 20/10; 3/11.
Glass Recycling Bins
One of the glass recycling bins is being retained at the Village Hall. Whilst glass can now be added to your grey bins, it would be appreciated if the bin at the hall could still be used as we receive a small payment when this is emptied, which can be used for the benefit of the village.
Reports have been received that several cars are speeding through the village above 30mph. Please do not drive excessively fast around our narrow lanes – especially now during the school holidays. Please adopt a “Twenty is plenty” approach, which may encourage some of our more impatient visitors to slow down!
Hedging your bets
Now is a good time to check whether you have trees or hedges overhanging the roads, particularly along Oaks Lane whilst it’s still quiet. Please arrange to cut back growth if it’s a potential obstruction for cars and lorries.
Those of us living near the railway have had our trainspotting enthusiasm severely tested by the thunderous approach and seismic shifts caused by two huge Deltic locomotives on the Yarmouth run. Fear not – they will be withdrawn when the franchise changes in September.
A big “thank you” to all those who supported the event and also the volunteers who gave willingly of their time. Thank you especially to Phil York-Smith for all his work in organising the festival. All who attended were very positive in their reports and agreed it was “a great family day”. A real village success – thank you to all involved.
