Please be aware that the Parish Council meeting due to be held on Tuesday 13th September has been cancelled out of respect for Her Majesty the Queen. The country is currently in a period of mourning and it was felt that it would not be appropriate to hold a meeting during this time.
The Annual Parish Meeting is due to be held on Tuesday 11th May at 7.30 pm.
Current legislation dictates that meetings now have to be held in-person again and no longer via Zoom. However, Covid-19 guidelines still apply and because of the 2 mt social distancing that is included within those guidelines, this means that space in the Village Hall will be very limited.
There will be space for only 4 Parishioners in the Village Hall but we are providing a Zoom link to run alongside the meeting, to which all Parishioners are welcome to join in.
If you would like to take up one of the 4 seats in the Village Hall, please contact the Clerk at [email protected] and it will be done on a first come first served basis.
For the Zoom details see as follows:
Meeting ID: 990 492 3599
The Parish Council meeting will take place directly after the Annual Parish Meeting.
From July onwards, we are hoping that ‘normal’ business will resume!

We are so very sorry to hear of the death of HRH Prince Philip, earlier today, 9th April.
Please be informed that there will a book of Condolence at Beighton Church from Saturday 10th April to Sunday 18th April.
There will be loose leaves for you to either fill in with your message of condolence in the church, or for you to take away and complete at home, to return to the church later. These will be collected together and bound into a leather Condolence Book which will eventually be given to the Norfolk Records Office for historical archiving.
There is also a condolence book which can be signed online at the The Royal website – please click here.

Please would all dog walkers be reminded to pick up after their dogs and use the dog bins provided. Although the majority do there are, unfortunately, still those who don’t make the effort to do such a simple thing. Not doing so is not only disgusting, lazy and unnecessary but is also completely disrespectful to everyone who wishes to use the pavements and footpaths in the parish. Thank you to those of you who do already clear up after your dogs.
