Beighton Parish Council

Welcome to the website of Beighton Parish Council, incorporating Moulton St Mary.

Our contact details are on the right hand side.

105 for power cuts

On 6th September a new national phone number “105” will be launched by electricity network operators for customers to call should they need to report or get information about a power cut in their area.


Key points to note about this service are:

  • Dialling 105 will put customers through to their local electricity network operator – the company that manages the cables, power lines and substations that deliver electricity into homes and businesses in their area.
  • 105 is just one of the ways that customers can contact their electricity network operator. They can also contact them by phone or via their website, and most network operators are on social media too.
  • 105 is a free service for people in England, Scotland and Wales.
  • Customers can call 105 no matter who they choose to buy electricity from.
  • Customers can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put anyone in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, they should call the emergency services too.

Police report

Summer home security and personal safety

The summer has certainly arrived in Norfolk with temperatures soaring over the last couple of days; however, don’t let this lovely weather cloud your judgement over home security and personal safety.

Opportunist thieves will be on the look-out for personal property left within easy reach of open windows and unlocked doors.

Common mistakes are leaving handbags and car keys close to unlocked front or back doors, or leaving jewellery and electronic items on display near an open window.

To deter walk-in thieves, householders are advised to:

  • Keep doors and windows shut and locked where possible, especially if the room/home is unoccupied.
  • Lock your doors if you are spending time outside and out of view of your home.
  • When answering your door, make sure other external doors are locked first.
  • Keep valuables and personal property out of sight, remove from window sills, worktops and tables.

Also vulnerable at this time of year are cars left for long periods of time at coastal car parks and beauty spots. Motorists are advised to remove all valuables from display and from the vehicle where possible.

Finally, Norfolk is well known for its maze of open waterways and on a hot day the water may look an inviting place to cool down. Please remember the rivers around the broads are unsuitable for swimming in and have hidden dangers such as a sudden change in depth, decreases in temperatures and unseen objects and currents, which can cause even the strongest of swimmers to get into difficulty very quickly.

Upton White Horse beer festival

Don’t miss the White Horse beer festival this coming weekend
Our fourth annual beer festival commences on Friday (15th) for three days. We have sourced over 30 real ales and 10 ciders from all over the country to enjoy, and we have a formidable line-up of live music in the garden daily. The ales and ciders range in strength up 6.9% abv and in colour from blonde to black. Outlandish names such as Tipsy Fisherman, Red Diesel and Bear Ass are part of the experience.
Bands (with names to challenge the beers) crack off on Friday evening with Stone Soda. On Saturday we have Strictly Confidential, Murphy’s Lore and Frozen Raspberries and on Sunday there is Beat Deluxe and popular Hard Rain are the finale, commencing at 6.00 pm. As usual entrance is free and food is available throughout with a BBQ in the garden later each evening.
The beer festival is a major contributor to our annual revenue so please visit and don’t forget to buy one of the commemorative pint glasses.

Agenda for 12th July 2016

12th July 2016

Uptdate on Summer Factory Activity at Cantley

Each year during the summer we carry out plant testing in readiness for the forthcoming campaign. This year we will be starting on 11th July and will be testing plant for 2 – 3 weeks. You will not see anything different beyond some of our employees being on shift and more lighting on at the factory during some nights. During the day if you are near the site you may hear pieces of plant being run for testing. No noisy activity will take place out of day time hours nor will there be an increase in commercial traffic to site

Any questions or concerns please feel free to give me a call.
