Statement by County Councillor Greg Peck

” You will have seen reports in the media that at the Council Meeting at County Hall on Monday, the council voted to increase members allowances. Unfortunately I was not present to cast my vote. However, on finding out the result I immediately wrote to the Head of Democratic Services at Norfolk County Council to inform him that I will not be taking the increase. I could not in all conscience take this increase, however justified, when we are having to make large savings in the budget.

The independent review did recognise that Councillor Allowances at Norfolk County Council are in the lowest percentile nationwide and that it would require a substantial increase to bring them up to even the national average. However, they recommended that a higher increase should take place in two years’ time”

Forties in the Field

What a great night was had by all…we were so sorry to have missed ‘Forties in the Field’, held recently at the parish church. It seems to have been a great success! Many thanks to all those involved in making the evening go so well..and I gather we made a small profit too! Here’s a lovely video recording of the event made by Jade Mander…many thanks Jade! (put fortiesfield in as the password, if you need it)

So, onwards and upwards to the Harvest Festival with its attendant attractions of old tractors, music and super refreshments; come along and join us on Sunday September 10th from 2pm.

And also put Saturday 11th November in your diaries now for what promises to be a very special event; celebrating and giving thanks for  the achievements of RAF Swannington and all who served with her, with a treasure trove of historical information and artefacts on display, attended by some very special guests, with wreath laying, playing of the last post, a fly past and planting an avenue of trees to commemorate those who served here 70 plus years ago…and again some heart warming refreshments!
