The town council has received a number of emails from residents expressing concerns about traffic issues in Reepham. These include speeding, damage to buildings on Norwich Road and vehicles colliding with the church wall.
Highways matters are the responsibility of Norfolk County Council but, as detailed in previous editions of “Your Council Matters”, the town council can make representations to Norfolk Highways.
At the forthcoming Reepham Town Council meeting, which will take place on 12 January at 7.30 pm in the town hall, time has been allocated on the agenda for councillors to hear residents’ views about traffic in Reepham.
Perhaps even more importantly, councillors would like to hear any suggestions or ideas as to how traffic flow through the town could be improved.
Incidents of vandalism
There is little doubt that Reepham is a pleasant place to live. However, there seems to be a small group of individuals who are determined to cause damage to the facilities that the town council provides for the community.
Following previous incidents of vandalism and anti-social behaviour, on 21 December a significant amount of damage was done to the public toilets in Pudding Pie Alley. This included smashing wall tiles, ripping the architrave from the doors and damaging the windows.
Between Christmas and the New Year litter bins were overturned on Stimpson’s Piece.
As a small community we should be able to identify those responsible. If you have any information, please inform the police or speak with the town clerk in confidence.
Platinum Jubilee celebrations
The town council is currently co-ordinating arrangements for the celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022.
A number of local organisations are working together to plan the celebrations and the next meeting of this group is at Stimpson’s Piece pavilion on Wednesday 19 January at 7 pm.
Any organisation that wishes to become involved is welcome to send a representative or any individual who would like to help is also welcome to attend but please notify the clerk (contact details below).
Hall for hire
The main hall at the pavilion at Stimpson’s Piece has been redecorated and the building is available for hire.
If you would like to view the building, without obligation, prior to a possible hire, please contact the town clerk by telephone 01603 873355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
