Wacton Parish Council

Coronavirus

The Parish Council are looking at a scheme to help our local vulnerable parishioners in these trying times. We are also awaiting information from South Norfolk District Council for numbers and websites that local parishioners can access for extra help. We have not received this yet but are hopeful it will be with us soon. Councillor Piers Blakie is trying to coordinate a scheme within the parish to help also and can be contacted on this email address for information p.blaikie@uea.ac.uk. or by phone on 01508 530482

The Parish Council recently held an emergency meeting as detailed by Norfolk ALC and instigated an emergency delegation scheme to allow the Parish Council to work normally but be in contact with each other via Telephone and email.

Once we have more information we will update but please be advised The Village Hall is locked down meaning The Parish Office is closed also during the pandemic. Consequently the Clerk is working from home for the foreseeable future and can only be contacted by email on wactonparish@yahoo.com

If you have any queries on this please do not hesitate to contact me as The Parish Council like to promote a new transparent way of working that has been introduced since I came into office.
