The WW1 exhibition took place on Saturday 26th May in the village hall and saw 90 people come along to learn more about, and share memories of, those lost in WW1 from the local area. The village hall committee would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated cakes and raffle prizes, and their loyal band of supporters who as usual set it all up, sold raffle tickets, sold teas and cakes etc, and of course, packed up afterwards!
Cheshire Villages Great War Society, who also attended the day with some memorabilia, were very pleased with the number of visitors this attracted and the interesting questions that were raised. They were also pleased with the additional information local residents bought with them to share about other local residents living in the village during the great war.
We hope that everyone enjoyed the day.
Update – £136 was made on proceeds from the raffle, and £68 from refreshments. From the fundraising a donation was made to the Cheshire War Society as a thank you for all their hard work in helping to put on such a wonderful village event. The remaining money will go to the Village Hall Committee. Thank you again to everyone who attended and supported the event.
The WW1 exhibition takes place tomorrow in the village hall between 10am-5pm. Don’t miss this special event and help to commemorate the brave men of Honingham and the surrounding villages.

Do we need a Norwich Western Link? (Information from Norfolk County Council)
When Norfolk County Council announced plans to build the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (A1270) north and east of the city, a lot of people said they were concerned about transport issues to the west of Norwich. Many wanted the council to fill in what they saw as a ‘missing link’ between the Fakenham Road (A1067) and the A47.
The County Council will be running a public consultation between Tuesday, 8 May and Tuesday, 3 July 2018 and, at this stage, they would like to know your views on any transport issues that exist to the west of the city. This is your chance to have your say and help to determine what, if anything, needs to be done to improve transport links or provision in this part of the county – so make sure you take the opportunity to respond to the consultation.
You can find out more and respond to the consultation online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/nwl from Tuesday, 8 May. Or you can come along to one of the nine consultation events being held throughout May and June, where you can speak to County Council staff and respond to the consultation in person.
The consultation events will be held from 10.30am to 8pm each day (with the exception of the Taverham event, which will finish at 7pm) and the venues and dates are as follows:
|Ringland Village Hall
