Survey on Art Trail

Norfolk Council Council’s EXPERIENCE Project is creating a new free Art Trail across Norfolk and will be commissioning artists to create one placemaking outdoor art installation within each district across Norfolk.

 The project has put together a NEW survey to gather feedback from local residents to support the development of artist briefs for the art trail. There are two versions of the survey – one version aimed at adults and the other at young people. We would be grateful if you could please share these links with your local networks (whichever is more appropriate); we’ve prepared below some introductory text for each.

We are particularly interested to hear from underrepresented groups and communities within Norfolk – please would you help us by sharing the link far and wide? Thank you.

Adult Survey Text

Norfolk Council Council’s EXPERIENCE Project is working with artists to commission a series of new public art works – one for each district of Norfolk – that will be linked by a 250-mile walking/cycling trail for you to come and visit.

 We’d love to hear from the People of Norfolk – tell us your ideas, opinions and thoughts on what you’d like this to look/be like!

 Please click the link below to participate in the survey – to say thank you there is also a chance to win a £75 Jarrold voucher for those who complete the survey. We look forward to hearing from you!

Summer Markets

The parish council is arranging Summer food and drink markets for Thursdays, 3 – 7pm at the former Barclays building. Do come along to support the stallholders…

No Mow May (and Less Mow Generally)

We’re leaving some areas of grass around the village uncut this year, to increase diversity of species. You’ll see some posts and markings, to let the grasscutting team know where they are not to cut…

Scams and cold callers

If you receive what you think is a fake text message, forward the text message, including the phone number or company name, to 7726. It won’t cost you anything and it means your phone provider can investigate the sender.
Report all scams and cold callers via Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133.
Be aware that people calling at your door, with goods to sell there and then, must have a pedlar’s certificate, which is issued by the local police.
Anyone selling you a service at your door, such as a builder, must give you paperwork with their name and contact details, with details of the 14 day cooling off period.
