Surlingham Parish Council – Applications are invited………….

As you are already aware 3 of a possible 7 Councillors were elected to take office for the next 4 years with effect from 8th May 2019.

John Broom             Barbara Rix              Pat Scowen

It was disappointing that more residents did not submit nominations, given the strength of feeling within the village in the past on issues such as flooding, the primary school, St Mary’s and St Saviour’s church, dog bins, red box, tree preservation, tourism, pond, a village plan that goes hand in hand with planning, parish hall, litter, play park, staithe, village shop, footpaths, speeding, pot holes and much more.

It is important that the council represents a broad spectrum of the community to ensure a balanced debate on all issues.

If you do care about the place where you live and would like to help bring about change in the village then why not consider being co-opted onto the council?

As the public face of the council you would attend regular meetings and share the responsibilities of the council with your colleagues.

If you wish you can access training provided by Norfolk Association of Local Councils.

If you would like to apply please send your details and your reasons for applying either via email to: or write to The Parish Clerk, 1 Broadfields Way, Rockland St Mary, NR14 7HJ.

Applications will be considered by the councillors prior to the Annual Parish Council meeting on the 21 May 2019 when the appointments will be made.

South Norfolk Help Hub Bulletin 42 – Spring 2009


Posted in News

Help Hub from South Norfolk Council

Everybody needs a bit of extra support from time to time and the Help Hub makes sure people get that help as soon as possible, if they begin to experience difficulties.

Getting help early can stop problems from getting worse. It might be only a small problem, like a broken washing machine or feeling a little isolated, but if it’s difficult to find a solution straightaway a small problem can grow and lead to more worries.

The Help Hub is a partnership between organisations that support people in South Norfolk. It can offer practical support, advice and guidance to get you back on track.

How to get help

Help Hub Bulletin

The Help Hub bulletin aims to promote what’s happening and what’s available within South Norfolk and its surrounding areas. It is produced every two weeks and features a wide variety of information appropriate for both residents and professionals, including:

  • Details of new or existing clubs and groups
  • General service information and updates
  • Training or volunteering opportunities
  • Grants / funding opportunities
  • Information on local conferences and events

The front page of the bulletin contains hyperlinks, so you can click on the headings which you feel are most relevant and jump directly to the content.

Pick up a paddle – it’s the best way to explore…

The winding waters of Surlingham Broad are a natural gem, right on our doorstep, best explored by canoe.

As the days draw out and the weather warms, a peaceful paddle provides a perfect way to pass a few hours, unwind and relax.

Alderfen Marshes are less than a five minute paddle from Surlingham Broad with easy access to Bargate, the river Yare, Coldham Hall, The Ferry House and beyond towards Norwich or Reedham.

Sturdy Canadian Canoes, available to hire for a quick paddle or a full-day adventure, are the perfect way to get to know your local area from a different, and watery, perspective.

To hire a canoe or find out more call Stephen Ferrey on 07788 154755 or click here to visit the webpage. Pre-booking is essential.
