Play Area Redevelopment, Your Ideas Please.

The Parish Council is planning to redevelop areas of the play area on the Water Meadows. 

The Parish Council is pleased to announce that it has secured a match funding grant to replace the fencing around the small children's play area on the Water Meadows. The current wooden fencing will be replaced with new metal fencing and two new metal gates. The funding has been secured through Breckland Council's match funding scheme. The work will commence as soon as possible under the current restrictions.

However, we are keen to hear your views on how we can develop the play area as a whole. If you have ideas and comments, can you please contact the Parish Clerk at

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions to be introduced across England, regrettably all indoor and outdoor tennis facilities will need to close.

There are two tennis courts situated on the playing field behind the Village Hall. During the current lockdown period they have been locked and they will continue to be locked after lockdown has finished, so players will need to start paying again.

The tennis club which meets, weather permitting, on a Sunday 10-12 over the winter months, and all are welcome to come along if you would like to meet fellow players.
