Autumn Update 2015

Village Community Event

We are looking to hear from people interested in helping to organise a village event to be held on the playing field in August 2016.  The Parish Council are looking for a number of people to form a committee in order to generate ideas for a community event.  This may be a fete, Village Olympics, barbeque, etc.  Any expressions of interest in the first instance can be made to any Councillor or the Clerk (see contact details below).

Parish Council – Uncontested Election

With seven nominated candidates standing for the Parish Council elections in May of this year, each of the candidates were elected unopposed and no election took place on the 7th May, aside from the Parliamentary and Borough Council elections.  The previous Parish Councillors retired four days after the day of election, that is on 11th May and the new Council came into office on that day.

The previous Vice-Chairman Mr Geoffrey Kemp stood down and was replaced by Councillor Len Fletcher.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Geoffrey Kemp for his valued contribution and wish the newly elected Councillor, Len Fletcher well in his role.

All Parish Councillors contact details and those of the Clerk came be found on the North Creake Parish Council website.

Annual Parish Council Meeting

The evening of Thursday 14th May saw the start of the next four year Parish Council term, which included the election of the Chair and Vice Chair.  The meeting saw the previous Chairman, Adam Bunkle re-elected and election of a new Vice-Chairman, Matthew Sands, for the following twelve months.

Agricultural Traffic

The Parish Council over recent weeks have become concerned and have discussed the large number of tractors and high-sided trailers using the roadways through the village for the transport of maize to the anaerobic digester at Egmere.  The Parish Council have been made aware that a number of these vehicles appeared to have exceeded the advisory 15mph speed limit.

Towards the end of last year the Parish Council had a conversation with the Police regarding the speeding issues through the village and as a consequence they did carry out speeding checks over a number of days, needless to say, no vehicle was captured exceeding the 30mph speed limit.

Our concerns regarding the agricultural vehicles were reported through Farm Watch and the Traffic division were made aware of the issues being experienced.  In the event that issues were to reoccur we were urged to notify the Police and they would investigate.

We would therefore like to advise anyone who has witnessed any large vehicles driving at speed through the village to contact the police promptly via 101 or email PCSO Chris Stevens with any concerns stevensc1@norfolk.pnn.police.uk .

And Finally……….

Please come along to our meetings held in North Creake Village Hall on the second Thursday of every month at 7.00pm, to inform us of any issues you would like tackled or to find out what is being discussed at present.

Jack’s Lane Wind Farm Construction

As you may or may not know, renewable energy company RES has recently received consent to develop a six turbine wind farm called Jack’s Lane to the south east of Stanhoe village. Construction is likely to begin on the site early in 2014 and last for approximately 12 months.

The Community Liaison Group (CLG) for Jack’s Lane Wind Farm, which met regularly during the development phase, is being reconvened in order to ensure that the local community has the opportunity to ask questions about the construction process for the wind farm and to receive timely updates about aspects such as construction traffic movements and when the Community Benefit Fund for the local area will become available.

The CLG membership includes representatives from Stanhoe, Syderstone, South Creake and North Creake parish councils, but members of the public are also welcome to attend. The meetings are a great opportunity for people to meet members of the RES team, hear updates and ask questions about the project, so please keep an eye out for adverts on the parish noticeboards and websites for upcoming meeting dates and times.

RES will send out newsletters to households within a reasonable radius of the site in advance of construction beginning and again when the turbine deliveries are due. If you find you are outside this area or unable to attend a CLG meeting and have any questions, you can contact RES direct. The Community Relations Co-ordinator for Jack’s Lane Wind Farm is me, Sam Mayes, tel: 01923 299 413 or email: samantha.mayes@res-ltd.com.

Regular updates will also be posted on the project website at www.jackslanewindfarm.co.uk.

Norfolk Teleshopping Service

What is it?

Teleshopping is a grocery service, delivered by Norfolk County Council using internet grocery stores such as Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose and Asda.

How does it work?

We call you to take your grocery list and preferred choice of store.  We then, whilst speaking to you, order your groceries and arrange for them to be delivered at a time to suit you.

Payment for groceries (and delivery if applicable) is made via debit or credit card or cash* (*cash on delivery is a very limited option, which depends entirely on local store availability – the larger internet stores will only accept card payment) on delivery.

If help is needed with unpacking this can also be arranged with one of our volunteers.  After the initial shop we call at a pre-arranged time to do the next shopping order.

How much does it cost?

Membership is £10 per quarter, which can be paid annually if preferred (£40).

If you wish to use the service on a less regular basis we have a ‘Rainy Day’ package.  This costs just £10 and entitles you to 6 shops, which can be taken at any time, with no expiry date.  Ideal for unexpected emergencies, discharge from hospital or bad weather.

How do you join?

To join or for more information please contact our team on:

01603 638435

Alternatively you can email us: teleshopping@norfolk.gov.uk
