Litter Campaign. The Junior School children have been very busy creating splendid posters. The varieties of designs are wonderful. I have sent a letter thanking them for their efforts. Let us hope that all our litter louts take heed. We could approach our local business people inviting them to sponsor some litter bins. An idea to be discussed!
The LAY- BY group
have now met for work several times. The bags of rubbish seam unending!
Bill has made contact with the 'Rubbish Removal' department of B.D.C. and
over the holiday weekend we hope to have cleared even more of the vegetation.
The Heritage group
have compiled the 'Village Information' leaflet. Wonderful information
and a superb map. The finished product will soon be available.
NEXT GATHERING 24 JUNE,
7.30pm 'THE PARK'
THE WASTE AND RECYCLING SCHEME
A brief look at some of the topics raised at the meeting which was held towards the end of May give an idea of the range of issues that take up the group’s time. They included the new arrangements for the out-of-hours service that will come into operation in July; preparations for building of a permanent home for the new satellite surgery in Swanton Morley; the problems of conflicting flows of people in the reception area of Elmham Surgery; the possibility of providing a baby-changing and disability toilet and the restoration of the ‘children’s corner’.
The group has, though, a special need of its own. Its secretary, Isabel Fowler, has had to step down and a replacement is being sought. Is there anyone out there interested in the business of representing the patients’ interests and prepared to help out (every two months) with some simple note-taking and helping to keep the chairman in order? Alan MacKim 668831 will be delighted to hear from you.
The group’s next meeting will be on Thursday, July 22nd at Elmham School at 7.30pm. Alan MacKim
