SPC September News update


Shelfanger Parish Council news update
September 2020

In lieu of a Parish Council meeting:

●    Steve Groom the Deputy Chair has been taking an active role in Parish business and during lock down was our Covid 19 volunteer co-ordinator.
●    The Clerk remains busy whilst ensuring that the Chair and other the Parish councillors are informed of any issue that comes to her notice.
●    The interior and exterior of the Bus shelter in the centre of the village has recently been painted and repaired. In the absence of volunteers Carl Taylor took on the work and this was much appreciated.  This year’s CIL payment went towards paying for materials.
●    Ivan Lord continues to cut the footpaths and he is a valued member of the community.
●    Planning applications come and go, details of which can be viewed on the South Norfolk Website or on the Parish notice board.
●    The water leak that has been flowing down Heywood Road has  been brought to the attention of Anglian Water, the Environmental Agency and Highways for them all to investigate the source and hopefully provide a remedy.
●    The South Norfolk council has been informed about a broken sleeper that crosses the ditch between footpaths 10 & 22 and it is hoped that this will soon be repaired.
●    Joe Thompson has moved out of the village but will still provide technical support for the Shelfanger website, whilst Parish Councillor Paul Chambers is our ‘at home’ maintenance man.

It is hoped that normal business will resume as soon as possible but await Government guidelines during these uncertain times.
Meanwhile, continue to keep one another safe.

Marion Paines (Chair)
