Please help at Damgate Wood

VOLUNTEERS REQUIRED
After the successful award of £8,000 as part of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme,
Acle Lands Trust now needs your help to create the path through Damgate Wood.
Initially we have 40 tonnes of stone to move into the wood, this will create approximately the first 250m of path. Access is limited so we will be using wheelbarrows to move the materials.
When: Saturday 25th June & Sunday 26th June, from 10am each day.
Where: Reedham Road entrance to Damgate Wood.
Volunteers of all ages & capabilities will be required, we need to clear the temporary woodchip surface, load barrows, push barrows, rake & level the stone.
You don’t need to commit to a whole day, just give as much time as you can spare. Many hands make light work!
If you have access to a heavy duty pneumatic tyre wheelbarrow then please bring it along.
For further details and to give an indication of volunteer numbers at any one time please email aclelandstrust@gmail.com detailing availability for Saturday/Sunday AM or PM.

Planning Meeting – 6th June 2016

Planning agenda 6th June

Exciting News

Last week Acle Parish Council bought the freehold of the Barclays Bank building in the village, at auction, subject to any last minute legal hitches… The price bid was £375,000. Barclays will remain as tenants and will pay rent to the Parish Council. The rent gives a much better return on capital than the current interest rate. The money used to buy the building is from the capital receipts from  the sale of the Springfield land.

The Parish Council is very excited to have obtained this site. It will enable protection for  this building and car park for the future. In the long term, should Barclays choose not to renew its lease, then the building can be let to another tenant, or used for community use.
