Bus Shelter Plans

Hethersett is hoping to have two additional bus shelters in the village in the near future. 

The parish council is supporting requests from residents for shelters in Mill Road at the junction with Meadow Close and in New Road opposite the St David’s Road junction. The parish council is working with Norfolk County Council to obtain grants for the work to be carried out.

Parish Council Meeting

The next Hethersett Parish Council meeting will take place on 16th February in Hethersett Village Hall. This year’s annual parish meeting will be held in the village hall on Wednesday 6th May.

Have Your Say

Hethersett Parish Council is urging local people to take an active part in the consultation process over plans to build an additional 1,000 houses in the village. 

Writing in the latest edition of the Good News village magazine, parish clerk Ian Weetman states: “A public consultation period is to be announced and the parish council encourages residents to participate. Details of potential locations for development are, as yet, unknown. 

“The parish council will be taking a very active part in the development debate and we are encouraging residents to join in. We re-state yet again that development, if agreed, can only take place hand in hand with associated infrastructure provision.”

Dog Fouling Problem

Dog fouling in Hethersett has led to a number of complaints to the village parish council. 

“The vast majority of dog owners in the village are responsible in clearing up after their dogs. However, we have had a number of reports of dog fouling in the Cedar Road and Mill Road/New Road junction areas. 

“Dog fouling is unacceptable and the Cedar Road are in particular is used by mothers and children on their way to the schools,” said Hethersett parish clerk Ian Weetman.

Charity Boost

The Hope and Homes charity will be boosted by two events at Hethersett Methodist Church over the next few months. 

A table top sale will take place in the Methodist Church hall on Saturday (7th February) from 10 a.m and this will be followed by the church’s annual plant sale on 16th May from 10 a.m. 

Events organised over the past few months raised  £396 for the charity which helps orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children in Central and Eastern Europe and Africa. The money is specifically being put towards the Emira and Nisveta appeal aimed at helping to re-unite two young Bosnian girls with their family

Local Hope and Homes co-ordinator Joan Green said it will take some time to raise the money needed for the re-union but she was sure it would be achieved.” I would like to thank all those who helped and supported the charity in 2008, particularly during the credit crunch when charities suffer as well as individuals,” she said.

Singers prepare

Hethersett Singers have begun rehearsals for their next production which will take the form of café style entertainment with music from stage and screen. 

This will be performed at Hethersett Village Hall on 16th May. 

The group practice in the Old Hall Shchool Barn on Wednesdays at 8 p.m and new members are welcome.
