Farmers’ market for Reepham?

Kerri’s Farmhouse Pine is considering providing space at the Old Railway Station, Reepham, for a regular farmers’ food market.
The aim is to promote good quality, locally sourced produce including fruit and vegetables, bread, meat and fish, and jams and chutneys.
No decisions have been taken yet as the owners of Kerri’s are keen to know if the residents of Reepham and district would be interested in supporting a farmers’ market.

The Bircham Centre in 2013

Our AGM on Monday 13 May was a brilliant opportunity to review the year we've just had at The Bircham Centre. So much has been achieved that will make the place better for you, the people of Reepham.
If you don't know about The Bircham Centre, it's the beautiful building that houses the library in the market square. It was placed in trust for the people of Reepham and is available for rent for clubs and meetings at a very reasonable rate.  It's run by twelve volunteer Trustees who make sure the building is maintained to a high standard.

A new season begins

Is this summer here at last? The weather is trying to improve and we did really need that rain for the gardens. Time to get out and enjoy your garden - to help, you will now find a good selection of vegetable and tomato plants at the weekly Country Market, along with bedding and herbaceous plants to add colour. We also have the first of the year's broad beans available now along with fresh salad vegetables. Pop in and have a browse - we are open from 8.00 am till 11.00 am on Wednesday mornings in the Bircham Centre.
