GNLP LATEST

The Draft Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP), if endorsed by the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP) Board and approved for consultation by district councils in mid-January, will be consulted upon from Wednesday 29 January to Monday 16 March 2020.

It seems that “Cluster Villages” like Bressingham will not be dealt with at this stage so we await a further document.

Two members of the Parish Council will attend. a briefing for Parish Councillors on Thursday 23 January, 19.00 to 20.00, where the Draft Local Plan and associated consultation will be explained to them.

In the meantime, the documents for the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP) Board meeting, which will be held at Broadland District Council on Monday 6 January 2020, are available at  http://www.greaternorwichgrowth.org.uk/planning/greater-norwich-local-plan/  Please follow the instructions at the top of the web page. These papers are published now to allow members, development interests, partners and the public the opportunity to view them ahead of the GNDP meeting.

BRESSINGHAM CHURCH “59  CLUB”

59Club

This club is run to raise funds for the Church. We have 59 numbers representing the 59 numbers of the National Lottery. Each Wednesday and Saturday the “bonus ball number” on the National Lottery is  used as the winning number for the “59 Club”.
We charge a £1 a week (paid in 5 week lots) and the prizes are £10 for a Wednesday night win and £25 for a Saturday night win.
Over the last 3 years we have raised just over  £1,000 each year for the church as well a giving our members plenty of winnings.
We have a few numbers left so if you would like to join the “59 Club” please call me (Kay Brock) on 01379 688331 or e mail me at kayhbrock@gmail.com and will be glad to give you any information.


AFTERNOON CLUB — 2nd TUESDAY EACH MONTH
from Kay Brock
We always welcome new members to our Club - we DO NOT sit and knit all afternoon but have a very wide selection of games to play (good way of making new friends) and also have meals out and trips during the warmer months. We started a scrabble competition which will last all year, it's an aggregate score so it doesn't matter if you miss one or two months. We like to think we provide an outlet for those in the community who spend a lot of their time on their own. PLEASE come along and give us a try - first session is FREE. More especially if you know of someone who would benefit from a couple of hours in good company please encourage them to come along. For more information telephone Kay or Reg on 01379 688331 or email kayhbrock@gmail.com and see below our events listed in the Dates for your Diary section above.
