Refuse Collection – August Bank Holiday

As South Norfolk Council only collect refuse and rubbish Tuesday to Friday each week, the next Bank Holiday on Monday 27 August will not affect those two collections and there will be no change to rubbish and recycling bin collections (black and green) for that week.  Garden Waste collections (brown) will be one day late for all of that week. To check your bin collection days, please visit

Summer Treasure Hunt in Harleston

Take part in the Harleston Summer Treasure Hunt to put your detective skills to the test. Buy a leaflet for £1 from Robinsons Traditional Stationers or the Swan Hotel and have a chance of winning a £25 prize voucher. Closing date 31st August

The leaflet will guide you on a trail round the town and you will need to answer some questions and identify some photographs where the answer will be in the nearby surroundings. Finally, you will need to look at the beautiful GoGoHare sculpture situated at St John’s Church and answer a question about the hare.

The Treasure Hunt can be taken by one person or by a group, (only one leaflet is needed by a group). Good luck!

More details about the GoGoHare and information about Harleston events and news can be found at
