Thank you for supporting the quiz at Beetley Village Hall.
We raised £452 and the winning team were 4 folk from Dereham plus our two helpers Janet Watling and Maddie Holland. They each had a £10 voucher useable in lots of well known stores, these were generously sponsored by Chep (UK) Ltd at Beeston to whom the Branch are very grateful.
Some of you may have had a knock at the door in April by our House to House Collectors, we raised in Beetley £79.
Thank you to my stalwart collectors and those who very kindly donated.

The Parish Council has negotiated a service with Norfolk County Council and Konect Bus on Tuesdays starting at East Bilney Bus Shelter at 10:45, stopping at Church Road East Bilney,and if it is hailed, the junction of Beech Road and Fakenham Road Beetley at 10:50 arriving in Dereham Market Place at 10:59. The bus will continue via Morrison’s and onto Tesco arriving there at 11:05.
The service returns from Tesco at 12:15, Dereham Market Place 12:20, Beech Road 12:27 and East Bilney Bus Shelter at 12:32.
The number of this service is 16.
The Parish Council recognises that this is not as frequent a service as had been requested for East Bilney but economic considerations had to be taken into account by Konect.
The service will start on Tuesday 21st June for a trial period.
Please use it as often as possible as if it is not used it will be discontinued.
The Parish Council realises that there are a number of people who drive through the parish and dispose of rubbish by throwing it out of their car windows. Large amounts of flytipping that is on highway land is reported to Breckland Council who do clear it away. The Parish Council wishes to thank all those residents who assist in keeping the Parish tidy by picking up the litter which inconsiderate people drop. Any additional assistance with the collection of this rubbish by parishioners would be much appreciated. Just by collecting a little and putting it in your green wheelie bin would help keep the parish tidy.
We have a small group of dedicated volunteers, to whom we are very grateful, to support to reduce speeding in our area, but would like to recruit more.
In addition to the Speedwatch sessions we also run speed monitoring sessions every 6 – 8 weeks using the SAM smiley/sad face equipment at various locations.
Although offenders get reported, the main objective is of general awareness and education.
To find out more about becoming a Speedwatch volunteer, please contact George Hayes, Co-ordinator on 01362 860922 or e-mail:email@example.com
It is estimated that over Christmas as much as 83 sq km of wrapping paper will end up in UK rubbish bins! Please do the right thing and recycle correctly. We love wrapping paper (minus sticky tape), greetings cards, clean aluminium foil wrap and cartons, advent calendars (without plastic inserts), clean food tins and drink cans and clean takeaway cartons.
Items for recycling should always go into your black bin loose, and not into plastic bags. For more information visit www.breckland.gov.uk/content/z-recycling. Thank you.
