Welcome to our Parish Council website
Our aim is to try and provide you with as much relevant information as possible about your parish.
If there is anything you feel we have not included that you would like to see on our website please contact the Clerk to discuss. We welcome all local news and activities and are keen to promote.
There will be works being carried out to some of the trees in the churchyard on 19th & 20th October 2023.
The consultation for the 2024/25 Council Tax Support Scheme is now open and can be found at www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/ctsconsultation.
Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner has launched his public consultation into the proposed budget for policing. Norfolk residents are being asked whether the PCC should increase the police precept of council tax for the coming year.
The PCC has a statutory duty to set the police budget and, with this responsibility, make the decision on how much residents of Norfolk should pay towards the policing element of their council tax. The consultation will run until 5pm on Friday 24 November.
More information and the consultation survey can be found here:
Do you know any Norfolk residents aged 65 or over who are currently experiencing financial hardship? Norfolk County Council operates the Norfolk Assistance Scheme (NAS) in partnership with Age UK Norfolk and Age UK Norwich to help residents aged 65+ get support and financial assistance for food, energy, water and other essentials. If you know of anyone who could benefit from the scheme, please encourage them to apply for support. They can do so either themselves or through another party such as through Age UK or via a carer or family - online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/NAS or by calling 0333 996 8333.
As you will have seen on our Home Page we are currently trying to provide access over the Bedford River for ramblers to complete what is known locally as Footpath 7 (or 'wide skies and open views'). The bridge over the river has been dilapidated for many years and we have been trying for a very long time to replace this. Without getting too involved with the detail it has not been a straight forward exercise with many hurdles to jump for the land owners, the Drainage Board, the Parish Council and Norfolk County Council. We are hopeful however that things are now moving in the right direction and very soon we might be able to open up this lovely walk once more for everyone.
For any of you keen walkers out there, the following might be of interest to you https://www.walkinginengland.co.uk/norfolk/

The Parish Council is interested to hear from anyone who might like to join a 'Friends of Nordelph Cemetery' group to help keep the churchyard / cemetery clean and tidy e.g. clean the bench, litter pick etc. Please contact the Clerk if you are interested.
The telephone kiosk (owned by the Parish Council) has been refurbished into a library / book swap / seed swap.
Thank you to Councillor Helen Thomas for doing this for the village; we hope you all enjoy!
