Starting from September 2017, the Parish Council will meet on the 3rd Wednesday each month, still in the Jubilee Hall, and at either 8p.m or 7.30p.m, depending on the time of the year.
The Council has made this change to accommodate a regular booking for the hall on a Tuesday evening.
May be this will be a better time for people – and the Council will be able to fill the current vacancies!!
The annual audit of the Parish Council includes the opportunity for electors to inspect the accounts over a given period. For the year ended 31st March 2017 this period is between 26 June and 4 August 2017. The accounts are available for inspection by appointment with the Clerk, and all details are on the Notice of Electors Rights which is also posted on Parish Council noticeboards.
As part of the Annual Audit process you can also look at the Annual Return, but please note that this is unaudited.
The following message was received via Police Connect this afternoon:
Police have received a report of an elderly resident in Reepham agreeing to pay for hedge trimming and then asked for £200 to clear away the clippings. The resident has refused to pay this but agreed for a copper water tank to be taken away in exchange for their removal and only the tank has been taken.
PC Andy Mason, Broadland Engagement Officer commented “Reports of rogue traders, cowboy builders and doorstep callers are unfortunately still a concern for both Norfolk Police and Trading Standards Departments. Rogue traders trick people into paying very high prices for unnecessary or shoddy work primarily on homes or garden maintenance”. To avoid becoming a victim of rogue traders, follow these simple steps:
· Never agree to have work done by somebody who is just passing or take their word that it needs to be done at all.
· Never pay for work before it is completed.
· Do not accept any offer from them to drive you to the bank to withdraw money.
· If you need work done, then visit www.checkatrade.com or call by phone on 0333 0146 190 or contact your local councils Trusted Trader Service.
