Attempted Break in Honingham Jan 18

Received this today from Terry and Maureen….please make sure all your outbuildings are safely locked up and nothing “interesting” on display! Terry and Maureen obviously shaken up but both ok.

Hi everyone
Just to let you know we had an attempted break in sometime during the night or early this morning in our aviary shed. No entry to it as we assume disturbed by lights going on in the house early this morning. Police have been informed and we have a crime no if we have anymore visitors.

Norfolk County Council Proposed Budget Cuts

Norfolk County Council are currently consulting on their proposals to make cuts to local services.  This includes cuts to subsidies for local bus services.  These cuts will directly affect Honingham.  Anyone can complete the feedback form in response to any of the proposed cuts and we are encouraging all parishioners to complete the form.  The consultation closes on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.  Full details can be found on their website; https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/what-we-do-and-how-we-work/our-budget-and-council-tax/our-budget/setting-next-years-budget

NDR Update

Here’s a special Christmas delivery for everyone that uses the roads around the north of Norwich: 7.5km of brand-new dual carriageway!

Yes, in spite of all that the weather threw at us a week ago, the next section of the NDR will be open on Thursday morning (21st), from the A140 Cromer Road to the A1151 Wroxham Road, The best part of five more miles.

Thanks for all the patience shown during all the work – most recently on the A140 Cromer Road. The opening of the next section of NDR will make life a lot easier there. It should also start to reduce traffic on Fifers Lane and Norwich ring road, although we need the last section through to Postwick and the A47 to feel the full benefit.

But with the 6km from Fakenham Road already open, anyone coming in that way for work at, say, Rackheath Industrial Estate will have had their daily journey completely transformed!

Here’s a link to the Transport Matters newsletter that has more information:

Proposed Review to Bus Subsidies Supported by Norfolk County Council

Norfolk County Council have recently announced proposals to review the amount of money they provide to bus subsidies.  This means it is likely some bus services will change or even stop.  Norfolk County Council have published a list of bus services potentially affected, of which the Konect 4 bus which serves Honingham, is one of them.  We urge all parishioners to complete the feedback form on the Norfolk County Council website and help us to try and protect this vital service to the village.

Bellfolk Open Evening

Bellfolk Handbell Ringers are hosting an open evening on Thursday 7th December at 7.30 p.m in Honingham Village Hall. It’s their usual practice night and they will be playing mostly music for Christmas along with a few other concert pieces. They will be using all their bells, not just the 12 that they use when they play outside.  It’s a very informal evening, there’s no charge to attend, and coffee, tea and mince pies will be available. There may also be a chance for people to “have-a-go”.  Everyone is welcome so please pop along and see what they get up to.
