Monday 2nd December 2019
Granary Staithe is looking festive once again now that our community Christmas tree is in place. Hoveton Parish Council would like to offer its thanks to Roys for its kind donation of this year’s magnificent tree, which we think looks every bit as impressive as the one in Trafalgar Square! And a massive thank you to the volunteers from Wroxham Bure Valley Rotary Club who erected the tree over the weekend. A project like this requires a big effort from all those involved, so a huge thank you to everyone who has helped put a little extra sparkle into Hoveton’s Christmas this year!
Thank you to all who came along to a very well attended and lively Parish Council meeting on Monday 2nd December. One of the many matters discussed was the issue of persistent speeding on the 40mph residential section of Stalham Road. Hoveton Parish Council resolved to take action on behalf of residents and have now kicked off the process with NCC to try to have the speed limit reduced from 40mph to 30mph, backed up by the substantial evidence gathered via our SAM2 sign. It’s unlikely this matter will be resolved quickly, but we’ll keep residents informed as and when progress is made. We work for you.
The Wroxham Benefice is hosting a carol singing event at Brook Park, this Friday 6th December, from 5pm to 6pm. Wroxham Praise Band and a group of carol singers will be out and about around the development, to offer some early festive cheer with some well-known carols. All are welcome, so why not come and join them?
We hope everyone has enjoyed seeing Hoveton’s community flowerbeds bloom this year, thanks to the hard work and dedication of a small group of volunteers. Next year, HPC will again take responsibility for arranging the planting and maintenance of public flowerbeds throughout the village, but we need your help to do so. Could you use your gardening knowledge to help plan next year’s planting? Perhaps you could join a working party in the spring to help plant the flowerbeds, or regularly tend to a particular flowerbed (at the moment, we are particularly looking for residents of Stalham Road to get involved, to help plant and maintain the flowerbed near the bus stop)? Please contact Cllr Alex Howe ([email protected] or 01603 783096) if you can help in any way. Volunteers are always welcome!
