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/

Update on Police Matters

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.
