N.B. Any Christmas cards for recycling? Bring them along.
Alternate Tuesdays, 11.05 to 12.00 noon – Village Hall.

Close that door!
Now that the heating is on, could all users of the village hall please close the outside door after they pass through? Hopefully, this will help to keep down the heating costs.
Too much fun?
Evidently someone had a very good party over the holiday – about 15 bags of rubbish were left beside the glass bank on New Year’s Day: bottles, tins, miniature shot bottles, also unopened bags of crisps and even tablecloths!
Thanks to those who sorted all this into the relevant recyclable materials and waste bins – what a shame that the people who enjoyed the party didn’t do the same! Surely a village resident wasn’t responsible? Please keep an eye out for such litter louts!
Who’s top dog?
Postwick with Witton Parish Council are supporting Broadland Council’s ‘Top Dog’ Campaign. Our residents can lead by example and sign up to the new campaign. We have free Top Dog packs available at the village hall for all those that pledge their support. The packs contain a special ribbon they can attach to their dog’s lead or collar, some free dog poo bags and the chance to win an iPad mini. Please see www.broadland.gov.uk/topdog for more information
