As Christmas and New Year will soon be upon us, with the possibility of additional bottles being emptied please continue to recycle your glass at the New Inn bottle bank, to ensure that this facility remains and the cash comes back to Beetley Parish and not to Breckland Council. This recycling bank may be removed if not used as Breckland Council is still considering the future of all banks in parishes.
THIS YEAR’S PAYMENT FROM BRECKLAND COUNCIL WAS £400.45.
The members are very sorry to report that, due to unforeseen circumstances, this year’s December Christmas Event will not take place.
