BEETLEY PRESCHOOL – Expansion plans

Beetley Preschool is an independent charity established in 1971, making it one of the longest running preschools in Norfolk. Run by Diane Calvert and her dedicated team, it provides an invaluable and affordable service to local families and has been rated ‘Excellent’ by Ofsted for more the past ten years.

There is a huge demand for places at the Preschool and there is a waiting list. The current metal mobile building is no longer fit for purpose; it is too small, is high maintenance and needs to be replaced. The charity’s aim is to create a bigger building with two classrooms, a quiet room for children with special needs, and better facilities including more outdoor space. A potential location has been identified on Parish Council owned land, part of which is currently used as a playing field by St Marys Community School.

The land is subject to a covenant which restricts the use of the land.
So that residents can find out more about the proposal, the Parish Council and the charity will be hosting two informal meetings at Beetley Preschool on Elmham Road on Friday 6th September at 7pm and
Saturday 7 September at 10am.

NORSE TIDY UP.

Staff at Norse’s Gressenhall office are planning a litter pick around the village on the morning ofFriday September 20 – and are inviting interested residents to join them. The initiative, known as the Norse Tidy Up, aims to get office workers out into their local community and is being mirrored at a dozen or so Norse locations around the country. Organiser Jessica Rollingson said the litter pick would take place from Norse’s office on Gressenhall Road, go around Beetley Meadows and then back down past the School between 10am and noon. She said: “As a company with a strong community focus, we thought it would be nice to ask if anyone in the village would like to join our Norse Tidy Up. Last year, we collected almost 200 bags of rubbish around the country and we are keen to improve on that this year if we can.” Norse will provide gloves and litter pickers but volunteers will be required to wear appropriate footwear and clothing which unfortunately cannot be provided. Please [email protected] if you would like to take part.

Permissive Access at Home Farm, East Bilney

Tom Kemp Farms would like to inform anyone who uses the Permissive Access at Home Farm, East Bilney that all the footpaths will be permanently closed to the public from the 31st of July 2019 as our DEFRA funded Stewardship Scheme has finished. Information signs will be placed around the farm where we believe most users will see them, but we have found in the past that signs often go missing!

Silver Socia Newsletter!

Welcome to the Silver Social August Newsletter!
We had the first event for our *Autumn/Winter Programme 2019* last week with Spiltmilk Dance and lots more exciting events still to come!

August Silver Social Performance –

Desert Island Flicks by Spiltmilk Dance

Spiltmilk Dance returned this month to entertain Silver Social audiences with their fantastically funny show, Desert Island Flicks. The show toured Ashill, Harling, Attleborough, Shipdham and Necton and had everyone smiling, laughing, singing along and even getting involved as part of the props and special effects department.

Everyone knows that a good show isn’t complete without some popcorn and this show had plenty of it! Some for the audience, some for the performers and some even used for special effects such as rain for ‘Singing in the Rain’ and to portray The Don’s iconic jaw in ‘The Godfather’.

The show, very creatively, used contemporary dance to help portray 60 iconic movies in just 60 minutes, with Sarah & Adele playing all the parts and sometimes fighting over the same part, such as Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz, so they both got to be her.

The soundtracks were switched and special effects “re-imagined” to create a very funny and highly engaging, mashed up movie marathon. Some standout moments included The Avengers set to the song ‘Do-Re-Mi’ from the Sound of Music, a John Travolta dance off, audience members getting to take part in the famous E.T. finger scene and the moment we realised Star Wars and Harry Potter share an awful lot of similarities. It was all very clever and so well received.

Thank you Sarah & Adele (Spiltmilk Dance) for the wonderful energy that you brought to Breckland and for leaving us all with big smiles on our faces. A big thank you also, to all of our volunteers that helped us this month and our wonderful Silver Social audience members.
