105 is the new, free, number that people can call to report, or find out about, power cuts. You can also call 105 with any welfare concerns relating to a power cut or if you are worried about the condition of power cables or substations. The 105 number will put you directly through to your local electricity network provider to save time exploring who to contact in the event of a power cut.

There has been an increase in the amount of dog fouling which is occurring in the parish especially on Elmham Road and in East Bilney. Please clear up after your dog and place in the dog bins provided or take it home with you and place in your green wheelie bin. This includes clearing up after your dog on footpaths as well as verges outside properties. The Parish Council is trying to get footpaths cleared of vegetation but this is proving impossible in places because of the amount of dog fouling that has occurred. The contractors employed will not clear the footpaths which are covered in dog mess. Offenders will be reported to the Dog Warden which could result in prosecution.

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.
