IF YOU NEED HELP PLEASE CALL BROADLAND HELP HUB on 01508 533933 or Norfolk County Council on 0344 800 8020.


The parish council is leaving the various benches available around the village. We know that some people need to sit down to rest, when out on a walk. Obviously only members of the same household can sit on a bench at any one time….We would recommend that you wear gloves and of course to wash your hands thoroughly once you are home.

Parish Council to use Zoom for meetings

Acle Parish Council’s next meeting on 27th April will be carried out using Zoom, now that the Government has authorised virtual meetings. Members of the public will be invited to “attend” by applying for a link from the parish clerk. Full details will be available when the agenda is published but you might like to practise using Zoom, to get ready!

Closure of public toilets

Broadland District Council has closed all of its public toilets in the district, to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.


Recycling centres shut

All Norfolk recycling centres will be closed after 24 March until further notice due to coronavirus.

The safety of customers and staff is very important, therefore in accordance with current government coronavirus guidelines of avoiding non-essential contact and preventing a risk of infection to others, the sites will be closed. It is essential that we do all we can to slow down the spread of the virus.

Much of the waste that goes through the recycling centres is bulky waste (large items such as furniture, wood and metals) and garden waste. People should hold onto these items until the sites reopen. Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.

Where possible you should compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings. If you can’t do that keep your garden waste until we reopen.

Please do not leave any waste outside the recycling centres – leaving waste outside the centres or anywhere else is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted.

BDC – setting up community hubs

I’ve just listened in to Broadland District Council’s town and parish councils briefing. Just to let you know that they are working on setting up the local community hubs, as set out by the Government. They do need to know about vulnerable residents who may not yet be on their radar. If you or someone you know is in need of support, please contact BDC on 01508 533933 or click:

Play areas are closed until further notice
