Affordable Housing at Beighton Road

New Affordable Housing at Beighton Road, Acle – Expected December 2014

Broadland District Council reports that work is progressing well on the homes on Beighton Road/Hillcrest, with expected completion in December.

The allocation of these affordable properties will give priority to local people – which includes residents and former residents of Acle, those needing to move to the parish to give/receive care from family followed by those residents of the surrounding parishes.

So it is important to ensure that anyone in housing need in the Parish contacts the Housing Options Team at Broadland District Council, and registers their interest in these local connection properties (if they have not already done so).  This will enable the Housing Team to check that the correct details are held and to ensure those in need are still registered – as some applications may have lapsed.

The person to contact with regard to these local needs properties is:-

Alex Alston – Housing Needs Assistant

Direct dial number – 01603 430595

Cookery course for men

Age UK Norfolk and the Joy of Food are holding a free, 4 week cookery course at the Acle War Memorial Recreation Centre & Social Club.

The cookery course (Kitchen Kings) is designed for men over 55 years of age who previously may not have had a role in the kitchen at home and who have now become carers for their partners or widowers, or men who simply have never learned to cook and are now taking an interest.

The course teaches basic cookery skills and recipes, the focus being dishes that are simple to prepare and don’t cost a fortune. Groups are kept small to ensure beginner cooks have a supportive environment in which to learn.

The course is free and all equipment and ingredients are provided.

Details of the course and how to sign up are in the attached pdf.
