The North Norfolk Distict Council has a new charging regime for sandbags.   In an emergency sandbags will still be free from the Council the first time they are needed, but on subsequent occasions there will be a 20 charge for five sandbags plus 2 for each extra bag (though the Council will deliver the bags).  People can no longer collect sandbags from Council offices or depots.

The charges are designed to steer people away from a reliance on temporary and less effective measures to protect their homes and valuables, and towards more robust and sustainable solutions to flooding problems.

NNDC Civil Contingencies Manager Ace Dann said, "With autumn almost upon us and a lot of concern being expressed about the planetary high tide that's due on 9 October, now is a great time for people to find out from the Environment Agency how to make properties more resilient to flooding and get some peace of mind."

People who live in North Norfolk areas threatened by flooding can obtain more information by calling North Norfolk District Council's Emergency Planning Section on 01263 516269 or 516074.  Or for advice on how to deal with flooding and protect against its effects, visit:

Dear Editor
I am a resident of Cowslip Lane and am in no way anti-dog.  However, in all this lovely weather I have been repeatedly driven to go back indoors because of dogs incessantly barking in the area.  It is bad enough that I have to dodge piles of dog droppings whilst out walking?  Now I have to spend so much time indoors when one dog barks for hours at a time and then sets off others that it is totally unfair.  So please, if you have a dog, can you not allow it to continue barking as it is badly effecting other people.

This year's Halloween event at Sheringham Park will take place on Sunday 29th October from 10.30 to 12.30.  Halloween Craft activities will be taking place in our Learning Centre where children can make a bat hat or a bat mask, a model witch or wizard on a broomstick and bob for apples.  There will also be the opportunity to go with our warden and check nearby bat boxes to see a real live bat!

The event costs 5 per child and places are limited to 30 max so booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

A special Halloween menu will be available at the Courtyard Refreshment Kiosk.


Dear Editor,
The Norfolk Federation of Women's Institutes is exploring the possibility of opening a second WI in the area; possibly a morning or afternoon meeting.

Any lady who is interested, just come along to the coffee lounge in St Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road at 10.30am on Monday 9th October.  Enjoy a coffee and biscuits and discover the opportunities that are available and that together we can make a difference.
Janet Rose, WI Adviser Norfolk Federation of Women's Institutes.
