Your village shop needs you – please show your support

Our Village Shop & Post Office – both open 7 days a week! – plays a vital role in our community, along with our School, pubs, other local businesses and community groups. It helps to make our village an attractive place to live.

But like all small village shops, it needs the support of the village community.

So please show your support and pop in regularly for all you need plus a catch-up with Sylvia!

Where else could you find a shop, Post Office, dry cleaning service and Avon Representative all under one roof?!

Thank you Surlingham.

You have taken the trouble to BAG IT so why would you not BIN IT?

I have been asked to raise awareness of the recent appearance of white dog pooh bags appearing around the village. In particular several have been left on the footpath to Surlingham Church Marsh. Also Pooh bags left hanging on the play park fence and by the allotments.

Under the Public Spaces Protection Order made under section 59 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. It is and offence for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access.

Can I remind dog owners that there is a Dog Pooh Bin at the top of New road by the path to the playpark and allotments? Also, that Dog Pooh bags can be disposed of in general household waste bins.
